A YOUNG teenager arrested

for robbing a service station last

week had been through the youth

justice system after holding up the

same place last year.

Last Thursday night, masked,

hammer-wielding robbers struck

Challenge Opawa, taking more

than $6000 of cash and tobacco.

Police have arrested two of the

four suspects, aged 14 and 15,

and are seeking two others. The

two that were caught have been

charged with aggravated robbery.

The Star has learned one of

the group took part in the

robbery of the service station in

October.

Police said yesterday they could

not comment on that aspect of the

case.

The teenager participated in a

community justice panel late last

year. Hammers and a screwdriver

were used as weapons in the October

hold-up.

A community justice panel puts

offenders and victims in the same

room to find a suitable punishment

and help the offender make

amends for the crime they have

committed instead of putting

young people through the court

system.

SOCIETY DOES its best to

rehabilitate young offenders

and get them back on the rails.

But for some, there is no

hope and no matter what plans

and initiatives are put in, their

lives spiral out of control.

Many years ago a detective

told me a young burglar he had

arrested would go on to kill.

He did. He was involved in one

of the most vicious murders

the city has seen. A totally

random murder of an innocent

young woman.

Another detective told me a

young boy he was dealing with

at the time had the propensity

to become a very serious sex

offender. How right he was.

Like the killer, he is now

serving a lengthy jail term for

terrible crimes.

So what hope is there for the

young teenager who has been

arrested for the Challenge

Opawa service station robbery

last week? (See page 1). We’re

told its the same offender who

robbed it in October.

Chances are the justice

system will see more of this

fellow.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the first trial of electric lighting at

the Lyttelton wharves on June 19, 1882. On June 20, 1928, the

Canterbury Aero Club was formed. The first pilot trained by

the club was a woman, Aroha Clifford. On June 21, 1851, the

Christchurch Cricket Club was formed. On the same day in

1897 there were huge celebrations for Queen Victoria’s diamond

jubilee which included the opening of Victoria Park on the Port

Hills and the transformation of Market (Victoria) Square. In

1909 the city’s high pressure water supply began operation. On

June 22, 1954, Pauline Parker and Juliet Hulme (right) murder

Parker’s mother in Victoria Park. Their subsequent trial was

one of the most sensational in the city’s history. On June 23,

1854, Pioneer John Deans dies at Riccarton. The preservation of

Deans Bush was one of his dying wishes.

BID TO GET NATIVE BIRDS BACK

Native birds could return to the city

as part of a new project to get people

growing mistletoe in their gardens. The

city council project provides instructions

and the seed to plant the native at home.

Mistletoe used to be a common sight, but

the plant’s popularity had dropped because

native birds were rare in the city and seed

wasn’t being spread naturally. Mistletoe

is a favourite food of the bellbird, and by

encouraging more people to grow it, it

is hoped the birds will return. You can

register to take part before the weekend, on

the city council website.

Drinking driver dobbed in by fellow motorist

• By Andrew King

A DRIVER four times the

legal drink-drive limit was

seen weaving all over a road

before crashing into a parked

vehicle in Redwood on

Monday.

The driver recorded

1080mcg/L. The legal limit is

250mcg/L.

A member of the public driving

behind the vehicle phoned

THIS YEAR’S Santa Parade has

been saved after Mayor Lianne

Dalziel and city councillors

approved funding for it.

The parade organisers had

just one month left before they

ran out of money, as a funding

cut last year

forced them to

dip into their

reserves to pay

for the parade.

They made a

passionate plea

Pam Morris

to the city council

last month for

$100,000 to save

the parade.

On Tuesday, city councillors

approved a $35,000 grant for

this year’s parade, which would

be topped up by a $65,000 grant

from the city council major

events fund.

Christchurch Children’s

Christmas Parade Trust organiser

Pam Morris said it was a

great relief to know the parade

would not have to shut down.

“It’s a victory, because it

means we can actually get on

with organising the parade,” she

said.

The parade has been run in

Christchurch for more than 70

years, and she said she had been

very worried it would have to be

cancelled permanently.

police after they saw the motorist

driving erratically on Sawyers

Arms Rd at about 1.30pm.

They then followed the vehicle

to Queen Elizabeth II Dr.

The vehicle then clipped a

van parked on the side of the

road near St Bede’s College

before coming to a stop about

200m up the road at about

1.45pm.

Police arrived shortly after

the crash and arrested the

“If it wasn’t for The Star, we

would never have got this far,”

she said.

The Star has run a series of

articles highlighting the parade

funding problems, which

began when the city council

cut the parade funding at short

notice last year from $97,750 to

$69,000.

Until the funding cut, the

cost of the parade – about

$200,000 per year – had been

split between corporate and

private sponsorship and the

driver, who is in his 40s.

He was not injured in the

crash.

Senior Sergeant Stephan

McDaniel said it was

concerning that someone could

be that intoxicated at that time

of day and thought it was okay

to drive.

“This is why we have checkpoints

at all different times of

the day and this reinforces that

need. We want to thank the

city council. In December, Ms

Dalziel promised the city council

would not let the parade fall

over and said the city council

would look at including the

funding in this year’s Annual

Plan.

But in January, the parade

trustees were told in an email

that there had been “no commitment

so far” to set aside

funding for the parade, so it

would have to compete with

other events for funding.

The trust then turned to

person for reporting this to us

and taking the time to follow

the vehicle so we could catch up

with it quickly,” he said.

The driver has been charged

with excess breath alcohol and

will appear in the district court

on July 18.

The incident comes days after

The Star revealed last week

that drink-driving statistics in

Canterbury had almost halved

over the last decade.

and fundraising to pay their

bills, but they could not raise

enough to cover the shortfall.

But after the appeal to Ms

Dalziel and city councillors last

month, the Annual Plan was

changed to include funding for

the parade.

The parade costs include rent,

insurance, maintenance of floats

and costumes, traffic management

and running costs on the

day of the parade and a wage for

one paid organiser.

In Brief

MURDERER TO STAY IN JAIL

High-profile murderer Ziggy

Stardust Buckeridge, who

killed a 14-year-old girl in North

Canterbury 25 years ago, will stay

behind bars. Buckeridge, 55,

was declined parole after his

latest hearing. He was deemed

to pose a medium to high

risk of sexual and violent reoffending.

Buckeridge is serving

a life sentence for murdering

Rangiora teenager Julie Sands on

Anzac Day, April 25, 1992.

ACCIDENT VICTIM NAMED

The man killed in a Rolleston

workplace accident was 59-yearold

Dayal Parbhu Patel. Mr Patel

was killed after becoming trapped

under a beam at about 12.30pm

at Pegasus Engineering in the

Rolleston Izone Business Hub

on June 9. He died at the scene.

WorkSafe have been notified.

BID FOR STATE HOUSES

Three community housing

providers have been short-listed to

take over up to 2500 Housing New

Zealand properties and tenancies

in Shirley, Bryndwr and Riccarton.

The providers are Community

Futures Christchurch, Otautahi

Community Housing Consortium

and a third consortium

comprising Compass Housing

Services Co (NZ) Ltd, AMP

Capital Investors Ltd, and

Brookfield Financial Australia

Securities Ltd. Housing New

Zealand will continue to own and

manage up to 3300 properties in

Christchurch.

FUTURE OF EMPTY CHAIRS

The city council is investigating

options for where the 185 Empty

Chairs on the corner of Madras

and Cashel Sts could be moved to.

Artist Peter Majendie spoke to city

council’s social and community

development committee on Monday

about relocating the installation,

which commemorates the

people who died in the February

22, 2011, earthquake. Committee

members voted to look into other

sites. The current site is earmarked

for the new multi-purpose arena.

Challenge Opawa staff

member Ged Hilliard who

was held up on Thursday

said the teenager needs to

be “taught a lesson.”

“Sounds like he wants

to be a criminal for life.

So it is hard to tell how he

will react to any form of

punishment,” he said.

Mr Hilliard had a gut

feeling when he was being

robbed that one of the

offenders was same as in

October.

“When it happened I

thought, I’ve seen this

before,” he said.

One of the hammerwielding

robbers told Mr

Hilliard to back-up or he

would kill him.

Cameraman Ron Madden’s colourful

• By Gabrielle Stuart

RON MADDEN, a colourful

TVNZ cameraman who worked

for more than 40 years covering

stories from conflicts in South

Africa to the Canterbury

earthquakes, died last week after

a battle with cancer.

Mr Madden, 64, began writing

his own eulogy soon after he was

diagnosed with cancer early last

year, saying: “I would rather tell

my own lies”. He began it with a

paraphrase of comedian Spike

Mulligan’s infamous epitaph:

“See, I told you I was bloody

sick!”

Friends and workmates of

Mr Madden said that described

his attitude to life – fun, witty,

forthright and irreverent.

But they also described him as

someone who was dependable,

a great friend, and gave a huge

amount of time and passion to

helping others.

He grew up in Christchurch

and went to St Bede’s College.

In his eulogy, which he worked

on for months while receiving

treatment, Mr Madden said the

highlight was starting a gun

club at school, and the worst day

was getting “six of the best” for

cheating in Latin class.

He worked in several jobs before

starting at TVNZ, including

as an NZ Forest Service ranger,

tour driver, deer shooter and

concrete truck driver.

As a cameraman he was able

to do a lot of travelling, including

to Antarctica, which he

described as “the most boring

place in the world”, and to South

Africa, where he remembered

riding with armed soldiers,

filming young boys playing in a

rubbish dump.

TVNZ South Island news

operations manager Mike

Fitzgerald said he had worked

with Mr Madden since the early

80s.

He said Mr Madden was a

fantastic cameraman, with a

passion for the job, a wonderful

eye for a frame and an ability to

engage with people.

He captured many important

moments in history, including

a lot of the central city footage

immediately after the February

22, 2011, earthquake, which is

still used today.

Mr Fitzgerald said one of Mr

Madden’s biggest strengths was

his ability to help people open up

on camera.

“I’ll always remember some of

his whitebaiting pieces filmed on

the Coast, where he really loved

what he was doing. The colours,

the sunrises and sunsets, the

water, the older people’s faces,

he just made it sparkle,” he

said.

Although Mr Madden was

not impressed with Antarctica,

he loved the West Coast, and

also took any opportunity to get

in a helicopter or four-wheeldrive.

“He loved the outdoors but you

wouldn’t get him hiking up a hill,

he preferred to drive or fly. He

had his own 4WD and he loved

it, arm out the window, Ray Bans

on,” Mr Fitzgerald said.

He said Mr Madden had

“underneath his gruff exterior,

a lot of kindness,” and took the

time to take many young people

– Ron to friends, Mads to

workmates, and “builders crack”

for the low-rider jeans he wore

“before they were cool.”

Outside work, Mr Madden

was a passionate clay shooter,

and represented New Zealand

at several international

championships.

Former South Island Clay

Shooters president Neil

Winsloe said Mr Madden was

instrumental in setting up and

running the club.

“If there were things to be

done, Ron would do them. He

was a great organiser, whether it

was organising accommodation

for a trip or fundraising for the

club. He was a lot of fun. And

he was a good drinker, always

had a lot of stories. Without his

assistance and backing, the club

would not be what it is in the

South Island today, that’s for

sure,” he said.

Mr Madden finished his

eulogy with a message to his

wife, Deanne Harvey: “Thank

you, thank you, Deanne, for

everything.”

Mr Fitzgerald said Mr Madden

had to finish at work early last

year because of his cancer, after

barely taking a day sick in his

life – he had 280 sick days owing

when he left.

“All in all, he was a really good

person, a really decent bloke,

and a bit of a legend in his own

lifetime,” he said.

A service to remember Mr

Madden’s life will be held next

month where his eulogy will be

handed out..

TEARS, CHEERS and telling

offs – Anna Wilding has had a

front row view of Barack and

Michelle Obama’s personal

moments in the White House.

The Cantabrian spent two

years working in there as an

independent correspondent, one

of more than 200 people from

across the world who make up

the White House press corps.

She recently moved back to

Christchurch for family reasons,

but said she kept her press credentials

and planned to return to

Washington DC later this year.

She began working there in

2015, representing Herald de

Paris, an online news site.

She often photographed the

Obamas, attended many of their

meetings, and followed their

political ups and downs.

She said both President

Obama and the then First Lady

were “very emotive” people, and

fascinating to watch.

“I’ve seen Obama look jaded

and exhausted, and I’ve seen him

cheer and laugh when sports

teams came in. I’ve seen him hug

his staff. I’ve seen Michelle tell

people off. She interacted with

children, and she worked in the

White House

Port Hills fire cost $4.5m

The Oval Office, where she was

invited to photograph President

Obama sign important documents,

was smaller than she had

always imagined, she said.

The amount of security checks

and clearances she had to go

through to first be approved and

then to enter the White House

grounds were also something she

had never experienced before, she

said.

She was working there when

Donald Trump became president,

and said the atmosphere completely

changed as he replaced

most staff, right from the security

to the interns.

“I think the new administration

coming in weren’t fully prepared,

they didn’t have the same

political background. Everyone

was polite but it was chaotic.

They’re obviously still finding

their feet,” she said.

Ms Wilding’s background is in

the film industry, and she spent

some time living in LA before

moving to Washington DC – but

she said Hollywood was “child’s

play” compared with work in the

White House.

She said many correspondents

there had worked in the White

House for 20 or 30 years, and

breaking in as a New Zealander

was very difficult.

“You do feel like a minority,

and realise we are from a very

small country that doesn’t make

much difference. They’d rather

answer a question from someone

from Korea, because of the importance

of the relations there, or

from one of the five major American

networks,” she said.

FIGHTING THE Port Hills

fires cost the Department of

Conservation more than $4.5

million.

Two fires, several kilometres

apart, started in early February

this year; two days later they

had combined. Helicopter pilot

and ex-SAS soldier Steve Askin

died when his chopper crashed

trying to fight the fires. Nine

houses were destroyed and two

were significantly damaged.

Hundreds of people were evacuated.

DOC spokesman Andy

Roberts said the department

contributed more than $3.5

million in operational costs and

$1 million in staff and other

internal costs. This amounted to

about half of last year’s firefighting

costs of $8.7 million.

The department supplied

more than 130 fully trained

rural firefighters, including fire

behaviour experts, air attack

managers and sector leaders

during the fires, which started

in February and burned for two

months.

“If we add in time spent on

aerial mapping, incident planning

and other background

support roles, that would come

to more than 11,000 hours of

staff time, some of whom were

on duty for up to 15 hours a day.

This all amounts to about 50 per

cent of the total costs incurred

on the Port Hills fires, which

destroyed some 1660ha.”

DOC has to respond to fires

within a 1km margin of protected

areas. No public conservation

land was burned in the Port

Hills fire.

DOC had also helped

fight major fires at Broken

River, Hawkes Bay, Hanmer and

Queenstown during last summer’s

fire season. More than 460

staff are fully trained to fight

fires on or near conservation

land.

“DOC will always have an interest

in rural fire and the threat

it poses to the natural and heritage

values that DOC is charged

with protecting.

Doctors warn of wait times

Street lights

set to go LED

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE CITY’S street lights could be

replaced with LED technology in

a bid to save $1.6 million each year

in electricity costs.

The city council is preparing an

application to the New Zealand

Transport Agency to apply for

funding to do the work.

City council planning and delivery

transport manager Lynette

Ellis said it would cost about $25.5

million to replace the city’s 38,000

street lights, excluding parks.

If the city council’s application

is approved, NZTA would pay for

about $21.6 million of the total

cost.

Twelve per cent of the street

lights on roads already have LED

lights. For 2017, electricity to run

the street lights was expected to

cost $4.6 million, Ms Ellis said.

Dunedin City Council will begin

replacing its 15,000 street lights

with LED technology soon, at a

total cost of $14 million.

YOU MAY face a wait to see a

doctor this winter, as both GPs

and hospitals warn they are at

The Canterbury District

Health Board, which has

expressed

concern that beds

at Christchurch

Hospital will be

full this winter,

has asked people

to call their

doctor first if they

are sick.

But the city’s

GPs have said they are also

worried about numbers, and are

already struggling to fit people

in for appointments.

CDHB planning and funding

general manager Carolyn

Gullery said a number of

strategies were in place to

manage the situation,

including an “acute demand

programme” that could treat

people at home.

She was concerned about

bed numbers, especially at

Christchurch Hospital, she said.

“It will be a challenging

the people who have health

New Zealand Medical

Association chairwoman Kate

Baddock told The Star doctors

had reported being too busy to

see more patients.

That was because funding

constraints meant some medical

centres could not afford enough

doctors, Dr Baddock said.

But Christchurch doctors

say they will not turn people

away.

Kennedy said

appointments

were kept free

for urgent cases,

and people with

She said funding was a

problem, as they would build

an extra room and bring in an

extra doctor if they had more

money.

David Jones, a director

of Better Health practices,

which includes the Linwood,

medical centres, said they were

under a lot of pressure.

As well as the cost of extra

patients, he said GPs had

also faced extra technological

and health and safety requirements,

and the funding had

not kept up.

Vicki Buck

Glenn Livingstone

Councillor attacks arches

• By Julia Evans and Sarla

Donovan

CITY COUNCILLOR Glenn

Livingstone has lashed out over

spending on the new airport

Gateway Bridge arches on social

media.

On Saturday, fellow councillor

Vicki Buck posted a picture of

the bridge’s arches at the Memorial

Ave/Russley Rd intersection

to her Facebook page.

Cr Livingstone kicked back replying:

“What a waste of money.”

The arches have attracted a lot

of criticism from the public due

to their $4 million price tag.

CONTROVERSIAL: At a cost

of $4 million, the new airport

arches are taking shape on

Memorial Ave.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

And Cr Livingstone said

the money would have been

better spent on a replacement

bridge for Pages Rd in New

Brighton.

However, he said he was simply

frustrated with the prioritisation

of the arches over projects

residents of the city’s east have

been waiting for.

“I was trying to make a point

over priority. Some would argue

both are a priority, and the

intersection (at Memorial Ave)

did need addressing. It’s just

frustration at different viewpoints

and seeing other priorities

leapfrogging what our local

(Coastal-Burwood) community

needs,” he said.

The Pages Rd bridge was seen

as a priority, two years ago but

was pushed back to 2021 to

2023, Cr Livingstone said.

He also admitted all elected

city council members are guilty

of “letting fly” on social media

from time to time.

Cr Buck responded to his

comment by posting a breakdown

of how much funding the

city council was putting into

each ward.

The arches are funded by the

National Land Transport Fund

not the city council.

Man shot in face

by police was

also a sex offender

A 24-YEAR-OLD shot in the

face by police is a convicted sex

offender, it can now be revealed.

Murray James Allan (right)

pleaded guilty to a

variety of charges in the

district court on Friday

after the incident in

Woolston earlier this

year.

Police fired on Allan

after he aimed a blank firing

pistol at officers when a patrol

went to search the parked vehicle

he was in.

Records show in January 2013,

the then 19-year-old was jailed

for three years and two months

for having non-consensual sex

with a 14-year-old in what was

described as “very close to rape”.

The court was told the girl was

emotionally traumatised, and

had tried to commit suicide twice

following it.

At the time, Allan’s presentence

report said he could

cause a “high level of harm” if he

offended again.

Allan was released on parole

on December 3, 2015, with

conditions he would not have any

unsupervised contact

with under-16s, or with

the victim.

Allan has been

remanded in custody,

and will be sentenced

for the February

incident on August 10.

Police had been on an

unrelated call out at 2am when

they stopped to question Allan

and another man in the parked

car.

When officers thought they

saw a cannabis pipe in the vehicle

they said they were going to

search it and called for back

up.

Allan then produced the pistol

and aimed it at one of the officers,

prompting police to shoot him in

the side of the face.

He was given first aid, before

being taken to hospital in an

ambulance with minor injuries.

POLICE SEIZED a rifle

and knife from a vehicle

they pulled over in the

early hours of Wednesday.

The suspicious vehicle

was stopped on Holland St

in Avonside at 3.33am.

A police spokeswoman

could not determine if

the car was reported to

police, or if it was stopped

after being noticed by the

patrolling officers.

He said schools were

more than places to learn

– they helped shape the

identity of the community.

So any design had to

reflect that and the values

and culture of the community.

“This project is special

not only for its scale but in

particular for the strong

pedagogical vision developed

by the college and the

leadership role it is looking

to undertake in the

revitalisation of the eastern

suburbs of Christchurch.”

He said the project was

personal for him as he

lived in Redcliffs, which

was part of Linwood’s

catchment, and he wanted

to contribute to shaping

the future of the school.

“I believe the current

college leadership is working

successfully to rebuild

the confidence of all of

their community in what

Linwood College has to,

and can, offer.”

and found a rifle in the

consultation with the

community on how it

could look and feel better.

It wants to become

the school of choice for

students living in its

Sumner, Redcliffs, Mt

Pleasant, and Lyttelton,

many of whom travel to

schools on the other side

of town.

The redevelopment

comes after a limited statutory

step into the school in 2014

to resolve issues between

staff and management.

Retirees bid to revive

Garden City image

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A GROUP of gardeners are

cultivating a plan to put

Christchurch back on the

map as the Garden City – a

public garden the size of

nine rugby fields, created

by retirees.

The plan has been

designed by Christchurch

Beautifying Association

members, who are working

with private developers to

create it.

Their plan is to create a

50-60 unit retirement village,

where residents would

all be gardeners.

Each unit would have its

own garden, maintained

by the owner – but the

gardens would all be connected

and open to the

public, forming a giant

public park.

On Monday, association

president Ron Andrew and

former president Brian

Briggs put the plan to the

city council’s social and

community development

committee.

Committee chairman

Phil Clearwater said staff

had been asked to look at

ways the city council could

be involved and support

the project.

That could include

building a community hall

or facility in the park, or

helping the group through

the consenting process to

speed it up.

Mr Briggs said he already

had a list of people

interested in buying units

in the village, and had met

with developers willing to

build it.

“I often talk to people

about going into a retirement

home, and they say,

‘no, I definitely won’t do

that, because I won’t have a

garden’,” he said.

The plan would allow

people to downsize into a

supported living environment,

while still giving

them space to be creative

and contribute to the community,

he said.

“It would be a real dream

come true for a lot of people,”

he said.

The group is currently

working with building

company G.J Gardner

Homes, and are looking

at creating the village on

a 9.5ha piece of land near

Papanui.

Mr Briggs said each unit

would be designed to look

like a little cottage, but

would have a fully modern

interior.

The estimated cost of

each unit title would be

about $350,000, he said.

Once set up, the village

would be run by a body

corporate.

Mr Andrew said he believed

the village could be

a huge asset for the city.

After Christchurch won

the Garden City of the

World title in 1997, thousands

of people travelled

from as far as the United

States and Japan to visit,

he said.

He hoped the village

could become a similar

attraction.

HopeWalk Suicide

Prevention Trust founder

Joseph Fa’afiu said the

walk would bring people

together to show people

are not alone. They would

be wearing yellow – the

colour of hope.

The trust aims to break

the stigma, shame and

silence around suicide. A

coroner’s report said Canterbury

had the highest

number of suicides in the

country from July 2015 to

July 2016, with 78. In the

last decade, there were 599

suicides in Canterbury.

Mr Fa’afiu said trauma

and anxiety, which could

lead to depression, was

a high contributor to

the high suicide rate in

Christchurch.

Importing makeup

proves a success for

determined couple

Top brands in makeup, skin care and

fragrance are offered at significantly

lower prices than normal retail at The

Makeup Sale in the Bush Inn Centre,

Christchurch and George Street,

Dunedin.

“Our mission is that we want our

customers to save money – that’s what

the business is designed for,” says owner

Palak Harry.

Palak and husband Alex arrived in

Christchurch from India in 2012 with

just $700, wanting to settle here and start

a business. Palak had previous business

experience, and decided that for their

New Zealand business venture she

would import cosmetics and sell them

here. Reaching their goal hasn’t been an

easy road, however.

“We had a very rough start,” she says.

“After working and saving the money to

start the business we ordered our first

stock, but it didn’t arrive. So, we saved up

again and ordered stock from the United

States. It arrived, but it was all expired so

we had to get rid of it all.”

Store based in Bush Inn Centre

Despite these setbacks, Palak was

determined to carry on with her plans.

“In my heart, I believed there would be a

good supplier, and eventually, after a few

more attempts I found one.”

The couple bought a small quantity from

the US supplier and sold the products

from their home. When this proved

successful, they started selling at the

Sunday market, with Alex still working

full-time and all their extra money going

back into the business.

The next step was opening pop-up stores

on four days a week – Wednesday to

Saturday.

“WHERE THE SALE NEVER ENDS”

up To 70% off

The one stop shop for Cosmetics and Fragrances (for women and men)

THE MAKEUP SALE SHOP

Owners: Alex & Palak Harry

“We opened them as an ‘event’, in

different towns around the South

Island –Timaru, Dunedin, Nelson and

Blenheim. We were all over the South

Island for a couple of years and also in

Christchurch at The Palms, Hornby,

Northlands Mall and the Bush Inn.

These proved a great financial success

and continued to grow, but with Palak

now pregnant with their first child, they

decided it was time to settle down. So in

January 2016 they opened

their first store, The

Makeup Sale, in the Bush

Inn Centre, with a second

store opening in Dunedin

in September 2016. Palak

now employs nine staff

over the two stores.

“We will still have

the pop-up stores in

Northlands Mall starting

in August/September,”

Palak says, “and we

are looking at opening

another permanent store

in Rangiora.”

The Makeup Sale stocks a wide selection

of top brands including Revlon, Almay,

L’Oreal, Maybelline, Rimmel of London,

New York Colors and Cover Girl. They

are also the exclusive New Zealand

stockists of the UK brand Technic.

“An example of the savings for customers

is more than 50 per cent on foundations

– they are never more than $20,” Palak

says. “We also have a huge range of

fragrances. We buy products at lower

prices and pass these low prices on to

our customers.”

Ensuring collaboration

ON Monday

afternoon about

300 people gathered

at The Piano on

Armagh St for the

first City Leaders’

Forum.

When I was appointed

Minister supporting Greater

Christchurch Regeneration just

over seven weeks ago, I committed

to keeping the community

as up-to-date as possible and

working alongside Mayor Lianne

Dalziel, the city council, Regenerate

Christchurch and Otakaro, as

well as other agencies and community

groups.

I did this because I firmly

believe that by working together

we can create something really

special.

The forum, hosted by the

mayor and I, was the first in a

series of events to ensure greater

collaboration and cooperation

among our city’s leadership.

It was an opportunity to

communicate our successes, our

challenges and the milestones

we’ve achieved since the quakes.

It was also an opportunity for

open and honest discussion on

key rebuild and regeneration

issues.

The mayor and I are united

in our commitment to making

Nicky Wagner

Christchurch the best possible

place to live, work and raise a

family. We see a city full of opportunity.

Accompanied by a panel of

local business leaders, community

group representatives

and regeneration partners, we

discussed concepts such as maintaining

momentum and effective

collaboration, as well as specific

regeneration projects like the

metro sports facility, performing

arts precinct and residential red

zone.

Christchurch is lucky to have

so many leaders of such a high

calibre — all of whom want

what’s best for their city. I’m a

naturally optimistic and positive

person but that doesn’t mean

ignoring the challenges we’re facing

or the work that still needs to

be done. By working together, by

more actively engaging with the

community and staying focused

on the task at hand, we can and

will be successful.

I look forward to the next

forum at the end of next month.

Some city councillors are

frustrated they still haven’t

had a formal meeting with

the new rebuild boss more

than two months after she

took over the role

Sam Newton – This woman

did nothing for the people who

elected her after the earthquakes,

now she’s in a higher

profile job I’m not surprised

that’s changed.

Andrew Johnson – Who

would have thought, eh. Someone

actually worse than Brownlee

exists.

Nicholas Smeaton –

Maybe she’s decided she’s got

more important things to do –

like going sailing on Auckland

Harbour.

Alan Papprill – She’s probably

out on the water somewhere

rather than engaging with either

the voters or her job. Out of

touch with reality . . . typical

National Party hack.

Graham Pownceby – Did

anyone seriously expect anything

more of a National MP?

Good job, the election isn’t far

away.

Chris Farrier – Time for a

rethink on this rebuild boss, we

have been sitting in limbo far

too long.

Graham Pownceby –

No wonder she’s not had any

meetings, too busy out on the

harbour.

Hamish Wilson – But she’s

Hugh Jonathan

McGuire – That’s disappointing.

The artist behind the

185 Empty Chairs tribute

is working to make it

permanent – and creators

of The Lord of the Rings

movies may help to make it

happen

Juliet Dalley – I love this

memorial as it helps to visualise

each person no longer with us.

As the article says – “the missing

chair at the table”. I appreciate

not all people will share my sentiments,

but for me this makes

a much greater statement than

the new memorial. Good luck to

the artist (Mr Peter Majendie)

and I do hope the city council

seriously considers the proposal.

It will be sad to lose this significant

tribute to all those that we

lost.

Julie Foster – I think it’s a

very visual and powerful memorial

to those we lost on a day

that changed our lives forever, I

personally think the 185 chairs

have a place in our city and in

our hearts.

Stephen Graham – We

have our permanent memorial

now. The chairs memorial

served its purpose well. Time

to move on. On the other hand,

there’s nothing to stop the artist

from displaying it on his own

private property.

Jan Wikaira – I love this

memorial. It came first and from

the heart and I would love to see

it find a permanent place.

Bronwyn Hendry – This

is one of the most powerful

installations I’ve seen in my life.

I really hope it stays. It is an important

part of history now.

Ali Greening – This a place I

go when I’m grieving the loss of

people, lifestyle and opportunity.

There is something here that recognises

that sometimes life sucks,

and we are forever affected by the

loss of someone or something.

Something that I do not find at

the other memorial. Yes, it came

from the earthquakes, but it is

about so much more.

Health funding ‘botch-up’

hurts Canterbury patients

JUST WHEN we

thought things

couldn’t get any

more difficult for

our underfunded

Canterbury District

Health Board they have been

dealt a proverbial kick in the

guts.

A botch-up with the numbers

in the National Government’s

budget has resulted in an error

in funding allocations nationally,

meaning 14 district health boards

were given too much money

and would have to give up some

of their funding to even out six

DHBs that were short-changed.

After initially being told how

much money they’d receive, DHB

leaders were then summoned to

Wellington and told their Budget

allocations will be changed.

Canterbury is on the losing end

of this maths and loses $2.69m in

funding.

To my mind, Minister of

Health Jonathan Coleman has

to front up and answer serious

questions about how this gross

error occurred. It’s fair to say Mr

Coleman has egg on his face after

a Budget that he’d rather forget.

There is no doubt that staff made

an error but I am old-fashioned

when it comes to these matters

– the buck stops fair and square

with the minister.

While this is embarrassing for

the minister, the bigger impact

is that some DHBs will have to

make sharper cuts than expected.

This affects patients directly. It

means if you are waiting for a hip

or a knee consultation or surgery,

the uncertainty will continue.

Critically, it also means that there

is no much-needed additional

funding here in Canterbury for

our mental health services which

are at crisis point.

This mess adds insult to injury

after a Budget that offered nothing

new on mental health, failed

to fund primary care adequately

and allowed the funding shortfall

under this Government’s watch

to stretch out to a cumulative

$2.3 billion. It’s clear that due to

his mismanagement of health

funding, there will be real losers

across the country. After nine

years, New Zealanders deserve

better. It’s time for a fresh approach.

•Megan Woods is Labour’s

Canterbury spokeswoman

What’s being done

about Canterbury’s

water quality?

Look a little deeper at the

action being taken to improve

our precious water.

This year, there are new requirements on farmers

to limit the effects of farming on water quality.

The majority of farmers are already doing the

right thing, but more needs to be done to truly

improve our precious water.

We are working with farmers so that they know

exactly what they need to do. It will take time

for these improvements to have an effect on our

water quality and quantity, but we’re off to a

good start.

Peter Majendie

Artist makes bid to find new home

Peter Majendie is trying

to find a permanent

location for his 185

Empty Chairs. Bridget

Rutherford spoke to him

about creating a place

for people to remember

their loved ones and his

stand-up comedy career

So Peter, I see you are looking

for a new home for your

185 Empty Chairs. How is that

going?

Well, at the moment on our

website you can vote for where

you’d like to see the 185 chairs

move to, like the CTV building

site, the Botanic Gardens or

Latimer Square. Latimer Square

seems to be the most favoured

place. We’ve been told it’s not

moving to the CTV site. So I’m

talking to the city council to see

if there is somewhere they can go

and what the future is for it.

How long have you been looking

for a new site?

Our proposal to make it

permanent was with CERA a

good two years ago, because

where it is now is earmarked for

the new stadium. We’re there

POIGNANT: Artist Peter Majendie says he painted the first of the 185 Empty Chairs for a grieving

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

for as long as the church meets

on that site. It’s always been a

temporary site. When we set it

up, it was going to be up for three

weeks. We did it for the first

anniversary of the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

Why do you think they have

remained for five years?

When we put it up, I was pretty

sure it would work. I think immediately

it was pretty popular.

It’s very open-ended and people

could engage with it. Whenever

we thought about taking it away,

I’d get a lot of emails. As far as

the chairs go, I can remember in

the first few months meeting a

young guy, he would have been

about 12, and he’d bike to the

chairs and he would sit there and

chat to his mum. He needed a

memorial then – not six years

later. I think one of the things

the chairs have done is transcended

the earthquake.

Where do the chairs come

from?

My closest friend lost a sonin-law

in the earthquake, and

I asked him if I could paint

a chair. We bought chairs on

Trade Me and a few places have

donated chairs. Over the years,

we’ve had working bees and

people have brought chairs along

to paint. I still get them from

the Salvation Army and the

EcoShop, I’m painting about 10

at the moment. We’ve had very

few thefts, the wheelchair was

stolen, and we’ve had a little bit

of damage through vandalism,

but not much at all. It’s really the

weather that breaks them down

so we need to replace some.

And speaking of the weather,

I hear you have been chatting to

Weta Workshop about making

the chairs more permanent?

We have cast one in aluminium

to see how it would work. We

went to Weta to get options of

how we could make them more

permanent, or make new ones.

We could 3D print them.

for his 185 Empty Chairs memorial

Where did you take your

inspiration from?

The 1995 Oklahoma bombing

memorial is made up of chairs. I

do speak on Vincent van Gogh

– he painted chairs depicting

personality – I think that was the

strongest influence. I know some

people have said they don’t want

a chair to represent their loved

one but the empty chair speaks

of the absence of the person.

And you mentioned your

friend’s son-in-law died in the

quake, did you know anyone

else?

Not well. I’d done quite a bit of

art around town and I had been

interviewed by CTV a number of

times, so I did know people who

worked there.

Did that make the 185 Empty

Chairs more personal for you?

It was, especially my friend’s

son-in-law. It’s been a privilege,

I’ve met some wonderful people

with amazing stories. People

who help maintain the chairs

feel they are actually doing

something, because they are

all hand-painted. One guy

suffered serious injuries in the

earthquake and it took him two

hours to paint the wheelchair,

and I think he found it quite

MOVING: Peter Majendie created an installation at Sumner

beach to mark the 100th anniversary of the withdrawal of

troops from Gallipoli.

therapeutic. No-one who was

in a wheelchair was killed, but I

know three people did finish up

in wheelchairs. There were a few

people who came along and it

was their first time coming into

town since the day of the quake.

You must meet a lot of

affected people there?

Yes, because it’s so open-ended

and an everyday object people

can engage. Someone told me he

remembered his son from the

little baby carrier, through to

the high chair, school chair, the

swivel chair at work. And some

people connect with just one

chair.

What other art work have you

done in Christchurch?

We used to do large-scale

peace labyrinths in Latimer

Square. They were very interactive.

We also wrapped the

orange tree for the launch of the

Canterbury Community Trust’s

$25 million earthquake fund. It

was on the corner of Manchester

St and Oxford Tce. We used hundreds

of metres of fabric for that.

And can you tell me a bit

about Sidedoor Arts Trust, and

what it’s all about?

Sidedoor has run for about 14

years. It came from a contemplative

space that my wife Joyce and

I created for people going out the

back door of church to help connection

and reflection. As for the

chairs, a friend of mine has done

his masters thesis around community

homelessness. He interviewed

a lot of homeless people

in Christchurch and they were

telling him the chairs for them

are a sacred place. They would

sit there and smoke and drink,

and I have no problem with that,

but they would never sleep there,

it’s a set-apart space. In some

sense, the Margaret Mahy Family

Playground is a sacred space.

It’s an absolute joy – I take my

grandkids there. Those are the

sort of things the city needs to

give it some soul. That was one of

the reasons we decided to push

ahead with making the chairs

permanent.

On another note, I hear

you’re also a bit of a stand-up

comedian. Can you tell me

about that?

I did it on the tram and I’ve

done stand-up in Auckland and

overseas in the United States,

United Kingdom and Australia.

It revolves around the fact I’m

deaf, my parents were deaf. I’ve

had a couple of operations and

have the most powerful hearing

aids you can get and a pretty

good phone. My parents went

deaf in their 20s so I knew what

it was like. I think in some ways

that was quite influential on my

art. We are so dependent on

words, so through art I’m trying

to say things visually.

And what do you like to do in

your spare time?

I like my mountain biking.

I’ve had some pretty spectacular

crashes. And I have six grandkids

who are a constant joy and

I am quite involved with. Joyce

and I are about to go with our

youngest son, his wife and three

kids to Paris and the UK.

Sounds exciting, and did you

grow up in Christchurch?

I grew up in Brighton and

I’ve always lived here. We’re in

Heathcote now.

meet mE at merivale

coogee, potts point, paddington, newport...

sydney’s a foodies paradise!

TRAVEL I 2

Sydney needs little introduction. Chances

are if you’ve visited Sydney a few times, you

would have stuck mainly to the beaten track;

shopping in the CBD, Bondi Junction and

down Oxford Street; lunching in and around

the harbour and at Wooloomooloo Wharf,

maybe a surfing lesson on Bondi Beach or a

day trip to Manly and the Northen beaches

on the Ferry. While I’d happily spend every

trip doing just this, there are unsurprisingly

some pockets of amazingness to be found

not too far away from these favourite haunts.

A great way to venture in to some new

Sydney neighbourhoods is to use the

Merivale Group as a starting point. The

hospitality superweights, established by the

Hemmes family has a growing portfolio of

more than 65 restaurants, bars, pubs, hotels

and function spaces that are all spectacularly

unique. It appears that they have the

hospitality midas touch with all their venues,

opening to steller reviews for both food and

ambience.

On the eastern side of Sydney, Merivale’s

Coogee Pavilion is somewhere you can easily

spend a day. Complete with petanque, giant

magnetic scrabble, ping pong and an in-house

theatrette, it’s a venue that ticks the boxes

for every age. A market style food court

concept inhabits the ground level, offering

oysters to wood-fire pizza. On the rooftop

the four indoor and outdoor bars, have huge

balconies that boast wraparound views of the

Coogee shoreline.

Coogee is really Bondis little unappreciated

sister. You’ll find a swim at the pictureque

Whylie’s or McIver’s Baths, one of the few

remaining womens only ocean pools, located

on the rocks next to Coogee Beach, is right

up there with Bondi’s Icebergs pool. Coogee

carries a less pretentious air than its Bondi

neighbours and has the added bonus of being

either the start or finish of the popular Bondi

to Coogee coastal walk.

Another infamous place many people visit

in Sydney is Kings Cross. But step sideways

a few metres and you’ll end up in Potts Point.

Worlds apart in terms of sophistication and

grandeur, here you’ll find the home to a

growing number of Merivale’s restaurants.

Behind a door bathed in pink neon on

Victoria Street, you’ll find Ms G’s which is

‘modern Asian’ and will be ‘unlike anything

you’ve ever experienced before’. The graffiticovered

walls, uber stylish lighting and jam jar

decorated ceiling are hipster cool. The menu is

exceptional too and mashes together the very

best combination of Chinese to

Vietnamamese, to Korean.

While you’re in Potts Point if you’re

interested in architecture, you may want to

visit Elizabeth Bay House to appreciate the

grand old architecture of yesteryear or visit

Macleay St which has plenty of clothing

boutiques. Potts Point is often referred to

as the little France of Sydney, with beautiful

tree-lined streets, art deco terrace houses and

european styled cafes, you’re bound to spot

plenty of expensive sports cars and lap dogs

sitting pretty amongst the euro styled locals.

You couldn’t mention Merivale without

covering the Ivy complex in the CBD. Home

to award-winning restaurants, Sydney’s only

rooftop pool bar, numerous event spaces

and leading fashion and lifestyle retailers, the

Ivy ensures the perfect CBD outing starts in

George street.

While many of us won’t be wanting to don

a bikini and head to the super glitzy pool club

on the top floor, The Ivy’s Felix and Ash St.

Cellar in comparison offer an oasis of relative

maturity.

Fred’s and Charlie’s Parkers, Merivale’s

highly-anticipated Paddington venues, which

opened towards the end of last year, are both

venues worth visiting if you hit the Oxford

Street shopping strip.

31 kms north of the CBD on the

stunning shores of Pittwater, another of Justin

Hemme’s renovations, The Newport makes

a great pitstop if you’re heading north on a

day-trip to the stunning northern beaches of

Avalon or Palm Beach.

Boasting Australia’s largest outdoor waterfront

beer garden, The Newport like all of the

Merivale Groups ventures has multiple,

eclectic, themed spaces to drink and dine in.

With live music often playing and a ‘vintage

gymnasium’ with badminton, exercise bikes

that can charge mobile phones, ping pong

tables, outdoor petanque and concrete table

tennis courts, there’s no shortage of

entertainment.

Like the Coogee Pavilion, the Newport

menu is based on a community market

concept, where different food stalls feature

everything from a grass-fed beef burger and

fresh shucked oysters, to spit-roasted pork,

fresh pastries and a pizzeria and salad bar too.

As a word of warning, if you visit one of

Merivale’s venues you’re sure to get hooked.

And as you should always be prepared to pack

an extra bag to fill with shopping on a trip to

Sydney, once you’ve discovered the Merivale

venus, also prepare to pack on a couple of kgs

from sampling the incredible assortment of

mouthwatering restaurants.

art for everyone

The Christchurch Art Show held it’s fourth consecutive show at The Events Centre, Wigram

Air Force Museum of New Zealand in Christchurch from June 15 - 18.

Described as a show with “art for everyone”, the Christchurch Art Show, over four days

showcases works by New Zealand artists. At only $10 for entry in to the show it’s an

inexpensive way to peruse artworks in a gallery meets tradeshow style setting. All artworks

are for sale.

A feature of this years event was the “biggest ever wall of art” measuring 21 metres long.

The wall held a signature work of the top ten artists that the public voted they wanted to see

return from the 2016 show. The 2017 top ten artists were;

Joel Hart: Joel creates multi-dimensional, pop-culture inspired urban works, often

incorporating women.

Marie Kjestrup Adams: Marie uses bold brush strokes, line, colour and layering to create

expressive, free flowing works capturing movement, flair and the excitement of every day life.

Liz Turnbull: Liz’s works explore our landscape. She has a fascination with light, water and

the outdoors and how our landscape’s mood can be changed by light alone.

Odelle Morshuis: Recent pieces are paintings of figures framed with layers of engraved

glass.

Joe McMenamin: Joe’s flowing organic patterns that ripple through his works have won

him a following throughout New Zealand.

Jane Riley: Jane’s artworks depict the beauty she sees and interprets with tremendous

energy, passion and flair, often incorporating textures of sand, gemstones, shells and other

natural materials.

Janyne Fletcher: Jayne is an Otago-based photographer who clearly knows the nuances of

the region’s weather and land.

Megan Huffadine: The objects and forms in her work are derived from the Central Otago

locale. Seeds, remnants and discards are sketched from memory, scale is altered and then these

are developed into new forms.

Susan Hurrel Fieldes: Susan’s printmaking works are abstract and often focus on the

solarplate, collagraph and drypoint methods.

John Burns: John’s artwork is bold. Some have stories, some are crazy, gentle, mad, kind,

thoughtful, different and thats a word I hear a lot about my art, and a word I like... to be

different.

If you haven’t been to the Art Show, you should definitely add it on to your 2018 ‘to-do’ list.

christchurch gets a little high

it’s like going through the cupboard in to narnia. enter the doors to the little high eatery and

you’ll feel like you’re in another world (or city at the very least!)

CUISINE I 4

If you’re looking for a new breakfast, lunch or dinner spot, The Little High Eatery is it. The

newest addition to High Street is calling the old Mackenzie Willis building home. With an

upmarket foodcourt/foodtruck concept, you can choose from eight different eateries; Bacon

Brothers, A Mouse Called Bean, Eight Grains, Noodle Monk, Base Pizza, El Fogon Grill, Caribe

Latin Kitchen and Sushi Soldier.

Far from the standard mall-style foodcourt, the attention to detail at Little High is

impeccable. Each of the eatery zones has it’s own distinctive decor, adding to the market feel.

Caribe Latin Kitchen has a brightly tiled bar and eclectic mix of prints on the wall and Bacon

Bros has the front of an old truck at the counter.

The lighting is impressive with each eatery decked out with an ambience to match. Over

at El Fogon the chunky rustic pendants are turned down low creating a very authentic Latin

American grill feel, where in stark contrast over at Eight Grains the lights are up high,

illuminating the minimilist Japanese kitchen.

With over 40 craft beers from all around the world to choose from and sake, sangria and

margaritas, you’ll be forgiven for popping back here time and time again to make your way

through the drinks lists.

The menus won’t disappoint either. Handed a buzzer upon ordering at each of the eatery

counters, there are no rules as to how many diferent options your group samples. Many of the

menu items are designed to be shared, making a perfect opportunity to sample a variety of the

the mouthwatering dishes on offer.

A spicy serving of Quesidillas at the Caribe Latin Kitchen washed down with a Dos Equis

Lager was my pick. To be honest i’d be happy making this my go-to choice, was it not for the

fact that evey plate that past my eyeline looked incredible. I’ve added the dumplings at Eight

Grains and a bowl from Noodle Monk to my next visit wish-list, but I know that i’ll keep going

back to make my way around the venue.

For those still working in the CBD, a coffee from A Mouse Called Bean which used to be

housed in the Re:Start Mall and a breakfast burger from Bacon Brothers would be a great pick.

It’s so good that i’d even suggest heading in for a mid-afternoon snack. Maybe opt for

somethig slightly left-field with a Japanese green tea ice cream or churros.

It’s proving to be sublimly popular so finding a seat on the weekend can be a gamble,

but with long opening hours (from 7am-10pm Sunday-Wednesday and open until midnight

Thursday-Saturday) you’re not restricted to head for just lunch or dinner. Being able to park in

the Wilsons carpark right outside the front door adds to the appeal too.

At this stage until the new venue buzz dies down a little I wouldn’t suggest turning up with a

big group. It’s easier to jump on the end of one of the longer shared tables or bar leaners than

secure a table or booth during peak feeding times.

Mahabis are designed in London and

The clever feature of this slipper is that

they can be worn both inside and outside by

clipping on a sole. Replacement soles can be

FALLS

Ask your Doctor about Canterbury’s Falls Prevention Service, Steady as you go, exercise

classes and green prescription exercise classes.

FALLS are not a normal part of ageing and many falls can be prevented.

FALLS are the most common injury in older people.

Falls by older people are usually due to poor balance and weakened leg muscles.

* Women are one and half times more likely to fall than men.

* ½ of all people over 80 years fall each year & 1/3 aged over 65 years will fall.

* Many falls and subsequent broken bones can be prevented.

* Many of these broken bones have life changing and life threatening results.

Ask your Doctor about Canterbury’s Falls Prevention Service, Steady as you go, exercise

classes and green prescription exercise classes. These are all designed to build up your muscle

strength and improve your balance. Walking and all other exercise that you do on your feet is

good for muscle strength. Half an hour at least three times a week is beneficial.

If you are over 50 years and have broken a bone as a result of a bump or minor fall talk to

your Doctor about osteoporosis or contact your local Osteoporosis Society for more

information, Trish at trish.adams200@gmail.com

The Osteoporosis Society of Canterbury Inc. have their AGM on Wednesday July 12th at the

YMCA Hereford Street at 2-30pm. There will be falls prevention specialists to give advice and

help.

what is important to you?

It is interesting what people perceive as important beauty/appearance items when asked

to name the three items they couldn’t do without if told they were going to a desert island

indefinitely.

A cross section of males and females ranging from 52 to 95 years old were asked the

question.

Oddly only one person asked if they would be there on their own. Their replies follow:

Elizabeth - 68

Coconut oil - It can be used internally and externally, hair brush, nail scissors.

LAW / BEAUTY I 6

Francis - 73

Sunglasses, hairbrush, nail file.

Susie - 63

Moisturiser with sunscreen, mouthwash and lip gloss (Chanel Exotique no 12)

Jo - 75

Magnifying mirror, tweezers and sunscreen.

Go ask your friends.

It can lead to an

interesting

discussion!

JoAN - 95

Dior foundation, Oil of Olay moisturiser and a ‘good’ lipstick.

ANNA - 59 & SARA - 62

Oddly two sisters Anna and Sara both chose identical items: moisturiser with sunscreen -

particularly for the lips, smudgy charcoal eye pencil and mouth wash.

Philip - 69

A huge cake of soap, piksters for cleaning my teeth and an endless supply of mouth wash.

Pene - 52

Scissors, mirror, scrubbing brush.

Mike - 66

A toothbrush so my teeth aren’t caked in raw fish, moisturiser to keep sun and salted skin

from going wrinkly and a comfy pillow so I get my beauty sleep.

JOHN - 82

The biggest, thickest supply of loo paper, Laphroaig mouth wash, (for those in the dark,

this is actually single malt whiskey and a hairbrush.)

CAPACITY

WORDS FLEUR MCDONALD

As lawyers, we are required to meet with

our clients and take their instructions in

order to help them complete the particular

legal task(s) they are planning. Sometimes

when we do this, we need to take a little

extra time to consider our clients legal or

mental capacity to make decisions.

Mental or legal capacity is a client’s capacity

to make a decision. Decision making requires

that a client:

• understands the decision they are

having to make

• can discuss with us the possible

options available to them in a way that

shows they appreciate the risk and or

benefit of those options

• understands the impact that a decision,

or the lack of a decision, may have on

them or their loved ones

• is able to articulate and discuss all of

the above with us.

It is important to note that the level of

capacity required isn’t the same in every

situation. For example, to make a Will the

test is whether the client knows they are

making a Will and the effect of doing so,

whether they understand the extent of

the assets they are dealing with and finally,

whether they comprehend the moral claims

which they ought to give effect to.

However, when giving instructions to

complete Enduring Powers of Attorney the

test is whether the client understands the

consequences of granting a power of attorney

and the nature and effect of the power they

are giving. This is the test even in a situation

where the client is no longer capable of

managing their own affairs.

Having these discussions with our clients

is difficult. It can be very confronting, both

for our clients and for us. In a worst case

scenario, our clients can be very offended by

us questioning their capacity. This is not our

intention. Our intention is to ensure that

the legal outcome our clients have set out to

achieve, has the best possible opportunity to

succeed.

We are aware however that if there is a

likelihood that our client’s decision might be

challenged, one of the first questions that

may be raised is whether our client had the

capacity required to make the decision in the

first place.

The best way of mitigating this risk may be

for our clients to undertake a capacity

assessment prior to completing their

legal work. It is best that the assessment be

scheduled as close as possible to the

appointment to complete the legal work

they are contemplated. It is important for

us to write to our client’s doctor to explain

to them the background of the situation, the

legal test that is at issue and to request a

detailed report regarding our client’s capacity

to make the decision in question.

For the reasons discussed above, if you have

concerns about your capacity or the

capacity of a loved one, it is critical that you

obtain advice from a team well versed in

dealing with these matters. At Harmans we

have a specialist seniors team to help you

with any queries you may have. Contact Fleur

McDonald on 352-2293 to arrange an

appointment to discuss your situation.

As we age the hair on our bodies becomes

lighter and sparser, making it even more

important to maintain our brows.

A well-shaped brow gives a look of

confidence and really balances the face and

frames the eyes. It’s also said that eyebrows

play the most important role in creating the

facial symmetry that makes a person look

attractive.

There have been many trends with

eyebrow shapes and colour, but natural and

full eyebrows will never go out of style.

If you haven’t got a naturally full brow

or you’ve had a long history of tweezering,

there’s still hope. There are a few products

that actually help to repair damaged

eyebrows or create an illusion of thicker

brows and in recent years specialty eyebrow

bars have popped up, offering expert advice

and techniques.

To get the low-down on what we should

be doing with our brows, Kim Mchugh, Brow

and I can recommend a plan to get your

brows back on track.

It’s advised to not remove any hairs for at

least 4 - 8 weeks prior to your appointment,

that way I can see what growth is coming

back and which areas need TLC.

A ‘Custom Colour Brow Tint’ can be a

real savior. It can reveal a fuller, more defined

brow literally in a matter of seconds in some

cases. It’s also great for giving the brows more

depth and helps to disguise the greys.

There are some fantastic results-based,

growth enhancing serums that are

especially formulated to encourage the

growth in patchy areas. Come and see me to

have a chat as they’re not suitable for

everyone... if the damage has been done

and the follicle is dead, it won’t encourage

any more growth but it may help to prevent

future hair loss.

If you’re not keen on a chemical based

product then I also recommend trying

Castor Oil or Organic Coconut oil. In my

experience, applying this to the brow area

can also help stimulate new growth and give a

lovely glossy finish to the hairs.

Time is also key - be patient. In my

experience, it can take anywhere from 4

months - 18 months for the completion of

your new ‘Bangin’ Brows’. If you’ve tried all of

the above but to no avail, then Microblading

is for you.

Be very careful when you choose your

Microblading technician, it’s paramount that

you do your research and always choose a

qualified and experienced practitioner who

has a solid background in brows. I can’t stress

that point enough!

2> Can you tell us what your eyebrow

revolution treatment entails?

The Eyebrow Revolution is my most

popular treatment.

It starts with a consultation - we have a

chat about your concerns and see what we

can do to achieve your brow goals.

A brow tint and shape is then performed

and brow cosmetics are applied to give them

a flattering finish.

3> Who do you consider to have

perfect brows?

I absolutely adore Cara Delevingne’s brows.

They’re naturally amazing and have that

untouched look which is my favourite.

4> What are we aiming for with our

brows.....there seem to be a lot of full

browed girls around at the moment?

I’m a fan of natural looking brows. My

advice to the readers is this; embrace your

natural shape as natural never goes out of

fashion.

Also, invest in a specialised brow treatment,

it’s well worth it.

LIFESTYLE / FITNESS I 8

On pointe

want a ballerina style pyhsique like

natalie portman in the black swan....then give

barre fitness a twirl.

Has anyone asked you to try barre

fitness? While barre has origins in dance,

the rhythmically challenged shouldn’t

worry. Most barre classes follow the same

basic structure. You’ll most likely start with

a warm-up, then move in to some planking

and push-ups, do a series of arm exercises

(sometimes with hand weights), and then

continue at the bar with a lower-body

section to work your bigger muscles like the

quads, glutes and calves. You’ll also put your

core to action with a series of either bar or

mat based exercises. A class will finish off

with some relaxation and stretching.

The isometric contractions that make up

the bulk of a barre class occur when the

muscle tenses without changing length.

Isometric exercise is a great way to maintain

muscle strength.

If you’re wanting to sculpt a leaner longerlooking

and more graceful physique aka

Natalie Portman in Black Swan then here

we breakdown the different types of Barre

training for you.

TYPES OF BARRE:

BARRE3

Ballet meets yoga and pilates

Using a yoga mat, ball and ballet barre.

PURE BARRE

Similar to Barre3 but with a cardio kick.

Ball, ballet barre and hand weights.

BOOTY BARRE

Created by celebrity fitness instructor

Tracey Mallett.

Ball, ballet barre and resistance bar.

THE KEY BENEFITS ARE:

• toned arms and back

• sculpted thighs and lifted seat

• strong, flat abdomen

• firm elongated muscles

• improvement in your coordination

• increased flexibility and posture including

improvement in your overall postural

alignment

• strength and endurance

• increase in energy and body awareness

Lyndal Woodham brought Bootybarre to New Zealand, back in 2013 and in 2015

she had the honour of becoming the NZ Master Trainer for Bootybarre, enabling

her to grow the brand in New Zealand. Created by celebrity trainer Tracey Mallett in

2009, it’s now taught in 25 different countries. Lyndal has since set up the On Pointe

Studio where she teaches classes for all ages and fitness levels.

Barre fitness stems from the exercises ballet dancers use to keep fit and

trim. Can you tell us how your bootybarre differs? What are the key health/

mind benefits of attending your classes?

Bootybarre is a fusion fitness of Pilates, Yoga and Dance, you don’t have to be an

expert or have any previous experience. We use the barre for support and resistance

and it helps with our balance. Its about coming and moving your body and creating

long lean muscles. In our classes we focus on small muscles groups, creating awareness

of these areas and how to engage and contract them efficiently to get the best benefit

from the class. Its all done to fun upbeat music, boutique class sizes and in a

comfortable inviting environment.

For the over 50’s (and those who don’t lean towards being ballerina-like)

is On Pointe still a good place to head? And what would be the best class to

start with?

Age is only a number and this workout is for anyone, both male and female. We have

a beginner barre class on Saturday mornings 8am which is always a great place to start

so you can get a feel for the class and the flow of it. From there you’ll go one of two

way - realise you love our little cardio blasts or not! So we have Bootybarre Plus which

incorporates cardio blasts to get the heart rate up or we have our flex & flow / Sculpt

classes where we have therabands attached to the barre and we use these throughout,

ditch the cardio and enjoy a nice long stretch at the end. You don’t have to have been a

ballerina in a previous life to come and enjoy the class, we encourage you to take things

as hard as you want, we give plenty of modifications and variations so each individual

can take the workout to their desired level. Its not about comparing yourself to the the

person next to you. Its about you getting the most of your own workout and walking

out of the room feeling a little taller, toner and sore in all the right places.

CAN WE let the bath do the running?

Research published in the Journal of

Temperature found that an hour-long soak in

hot water produced similar anti-inflammatory

and blood sugar responses as 60 minutes of

moderate physical activity.

“It seems that activities that increase heat

shock proteins may help to improve blood

sugar control and offer an alternative to

exercise,” lead study author Steve Faulkner

from Loughborough University wrote. “These

activities -such as soaking in a hot tub or

taking a sauna - may have health benefits for

people who are unable to exercise regularly.”

It’s critical to point out a few limitations of

the study. For starters, the experiment only

monitored men, so it’s difficult to say if the

same effect would happen in women. It also

only included 14 volunteers, which is an

extremely small sample size. More research

needs to be conducted before scientists

can come to any official conclusion. And, of

course, you should still continue to exercise

regularly.

That being said, the study does offer some

more promising insight into the healing

effects of hot water. The science of hot baths

is seemingly only delivering good news!

Canterbury has some stunning mountain bike

tracks with terrain varying from super flat

to moderatly hilly. From the leisurly Bottle

Lake Forest to the stunnigly scenic Lees Valley,

we’ve rounded up a few favourites;

McLeans Island Track

It is a well built, fast, smooth track that everybody

will enjoy.

10.5KM MAIN LOOP - 30 MINUTES

2KM RIVER LOOP - 8 MINUTES

Add an extra 2km’s with this little detour out

towards the river.

5KM CORINGA LOOP - 15 MINUTES

Head under the bridge for an extra 5km’s

extending the ride into a figure of 8.

The track is made to be ridden in one

direction so make sure you’re heading the

right way!

Bottle Lake Forest

Bottle Lake is a great place to find varied and

fun mountain biking. You can spend a couple of

hours going around with the kids, or go hard

for a 45 minute workout. At the halfway point

you can also reward yourself with a coffee or

ice cream.

BOTTLE LAKE FOREST - 45 MINUTES - 2

HOURS

Crocodile Track

Through the cattle stop, the single track winds

down over farm land and through a small

plantaion before coming out at the Halswell

Quarry. Apart from a small up hill section, it is

all fast down hill, single track.

HALSWELL QUARRY TO THE START OF

THE CROCODILE - 15 - 20 MINUTES

Why should you get back on your bike

as you get older?

1. It’s easy on the joints.

When you sit on a bike, you put your weight

on a pair of bones in the pelvis called the

ischial tuberosities, unlike walking, when you

put your weight on your legs.

2. It’s a great aerobic workout.

Aerobic exercise also triggers the release of

endorphins, the body’s feel-good chemicals—

which may make you feel young at heart.

3. You’ll build up muscle.

As you get older, you lose muscle mass.

Keeping your body fit starts with simply riding

your bike often, While your buttocks and legs

are the obvious muscles being put to work,

you’ll also use abdominal muscles to balance

and stay upright and to a smaller degree your

arms by holding on.

4. Pedaling builds bone.

Resistance activities, such as pushing pedals,

pull on the muscles, and then the muscles pull

on the bone, which increases bone density.

5. It’s great for your wellbeing.

Even half an hour of daily exercise has been

observed to improve people’s subjective

mood and well-being!

Christchurch Heart Institute and the Heart Foundation

First to Work with Cardiovascular Charity Partnership

Ryman residents and staff raise $330,000 for heart research

The Christchurch Heart Institute is

working alongside the Heart Foundation as

part of an innovative approach to

cardiovascular disease (CVD) research,

following a significant donation of $330,000

from Ryman Healthcare received on the 31

May 2017.

The 2016-17 charity partnership between

Ryman Healthcare and the Heart Foundation,

which has funded the Heart Foundation

Clinical Fellowship, will support a clinical

research study, looking into the scope and

make-up of cardiovascular disease in residents

of Ryman Healthcare facilities.

Associate Professor, Chris Pemberton, of

the Christchurch Heart Institute, based at the

University of Otago, Christchurch, is behind

the idea to run the study which will provide

a clearer picture about the CVD risk in New

Zealand’s retirement healthcare sector.

“It is exciting to be working with the Heart

Foundation, who have informed residents of

Ryman Healthcare facilities about the study,

laying the foundation for the project to

proceed. Ryman residents who volunteer

to take part in the study, will benefit from

increased awareness of their overall health and

any cardiovascular risk. The information we

gather at the Christchurch villages and

others around the country will be used to

raise the standard of cardiovascular care in

New Zealand,” he said.

The study will begin at Ryman retirement

villages in Christchurch, and gradually roll-out

across the country, which is something

Pemberton is looking forward to.

“We want to get going in 2017, firstly

putting systems in place, with a view to starting

the first of the studies later this year.”

The Christchurch Heart Institute, a

University of Otago Research Centre, is

renowned globally for their contribution to

CVD research. In particular, the discoveries

of blood hormones associated with heart

disease which have led to specific blood tests

for heart issues, now being used routinely in

clinics all around the world.

“This project is aimed at taking what we

know in a hospital setting and applying that

knowledge in the primary health sector.

Leading to better management of

cardiovascular disease, before hospital

admission becomes necessary.”

Heart Foundation Chief Executive, Tony

Duncan, is delighted to have been part of the

Ryman Healthcare charity partnership for

2016-17. He believes Ryman’s donation will

undoubtedly support many people in the aged

care sector who are impacted by heart

disease, which is New Zealand’s biggest killer.

“Given the high incidences of heart disease

in the aged care sector, this will make a

significant contribution to the management of

heart disease among the aged.”

Ryman Managing Director Simon Challies

said heart health had been a popular cause.

Over the past 12 months the Ryman family

has been busy with knitting, barbecues, art

shows, raffles and head shaves to raise as

much as possible for the Heart Foundation.

“We all know what a great job the Heart

Foundation does and it has been a popular

charity with residents. We’ve had a record

year for fundraising with residents and staff

participating in a whole lot of fundraisers.

They’re big-hearted people – if you’ll excuse

the pun – and we are delighted to match their

fund-raising dollar-for-dollar. The $330,000

raised is a new record for Ryman.’’

‘right size’ not necessarily ‘downsize’

do not downsize your dreams, but do carefully consider getting a puppy or purchasing a big

old house in your later years!

As we get older, it’s no surprise that we find ourselves “downsizing” in many different ways.

One of which might be getting a newer or smaller house, a more managable garden or a smaller

dog. It’s a very common phenomenon as we enter the golden years.

But it might not be so much about ‘downsizing’ the square metres of your house or the kgs

of your dog that matter to you most, but more the location of the property relative to family

and ammenties and the exercise requirements of your breed of dog. Over 50 it’s all about

finding the right size for you.

The trend toward pint-size pooches has been well documented since 2000 but has

accelerated in recent years, in part because of an aging population of baby boomers. For many

people who have had labradors their whole live, they might consider a miniture labradoodle

which is a lot smaller and doesn’t require quite so much exercise, yet is similar in temprament.

A dog’s energy levels and temperament can be just as important as it’s size. Do you have the

energy to deal with a puppy who wants to destroy every shoe in sight? Adopting a pet from the

SPCA is a great way to find a new companion without having to put yourself through the puppy

faze. When you go in to the SPCA to meet their adoptees, they take the time to find out a little

about you, your lifestyle, your property and your experience with animals. They’ll also offer

advice, to help ensure you find the perfect companion to suit your needs.

It’s also worth considering that many multi-units and assisted-living communities have size

restrictions, which make it difficult to bring larger breeds with you if you need or want to move.

Going hand-in-hand with what animals you should consider when you hit your later years

come decisions about property.

Laurie Sutton of Ray White says, “In my experience, ‘mature’ downsizers generally choose

location based on being close to family, especially if there are grandkids, friends, work or

lifestyle. Some may like the facilities of some of the new sub divisions like Pegasus or

Clearwater, but I think the other factors take priority. The newer areas do offer the advantages

of all the mod cons, plus good insulation and double glazing, not to mention EC safety, all of

which would be desirable, particularly for an older person.”

New homes being built today are often built smarter than the sprawling homes of the past.

The better design that usually comes with 21st century living means smaller homes can feel just

as spacious. By moving to a smaller place, the obvious benefits such as lower monthly

electricity bills, contents insurance and house maintenance are reduced. There’s also a benifit in

moving to an area that has a sense of community, where you can get to know the neighbours,

rather than isolation and privacy.

In terms of desirable features, Laurie would suggest looking for “single story, with a low

maintenance garden, proximity to amenities, including healthcare and proximity to public

transport as key. Safe neighbourhoods, security, and good parking, ideally an internal access

EXERCISE THE MIND

garage are all important. Schools zones, which can add value to some suburbs would be less

important, but might be factored in when considering resale value. Many of the smaller homes

today are on cross leases or unit titles, which a lot of buyers shun, but because of that they are

often more affordable, and shouldn’t necessarily be overlooked. As long as the solicitor goes

over it, I personally don’t see the downside and I own a cross leased home myself.”

Future proofing should also be a consideration when looking for a new home. Will the

owner be likely to need to make the home handicap friendly in the future? Likewise, health

and safety should be considered. Are there any tripping hazards or other potential risks? “We

sold a small home recently that was subject to approval from the buyers physio that ramps and

handrails could be adequately installed, for instance.”

While it’s important not to downsize your dreams in terms of house or pet, it’s important

to future proof your selections and start thinking about what’s going to work for you in a few

years time.

Single story, with a low maintenance garden, proximity

to amenities, including healthcare and proximity to

public transport as key.

what do your coffee table books say about you?

Les Dîners De Gala by Salvador Dalí

Available from Book Depository

In the Company of Women

Available from Collected

Let’s face it: the coffee table book is not just a book; it’s an item designed to showcase a

little snapshot in to the owners interests. It’s always intriguing to see what kind of books

people put out on their coffee table. Are they arty books or travel based? Do they look like

they’ve been well read or are they just there for show? Coffee table books are now often

used by interior stylists to instantly transform a surface by adding some pops of colour and

a little sophistication to your home.

The 1970s cookbook that surrealist painter Salvador Dalí created with his wife Gala is

unsurprisingly bonkers, featuring 136 recipes with dreamlike illustrations by the artist, and

including a chapter specifically dedicated to aphrodisiacs.

In the Company of Women features profiles of a broad cross-section of more than 100

inspiring, creative, successful women – from Rookie editor Tavi Gevinson to Thelma Golden,

director and chief curator of New York’s The Studio Museum.

Another slightly odd, definitely intriguing choice, Women in Trees is edited by a woman

named Jochen Raiss, who has been collecting amateur photographs of women in trees from

flea markets for around a quarter of a century. Weird and wonderful, this strangely touching

book has captured moments of pure happiness enjoyed by unknown women from the

1920s to the 1950s.

The Sharks coffee book would be one to add to the table for pure shock factor, the large

scale images taken by Michael Muller literally jump off the pages!

tears we cannot stop: A SERMON TO WHITE AMERICA

In his 2016 New York Times op-ed piece

“Death in Black and White,” Michael Eric

Dyson moved a nation. Now he continues

to share his views in Tears We Cannot Stop.

Dyson makes it clear to readers that he wants

more than guilt, he wants action and change.

He wants readers to wake up to “what it

means to be black in America”, and actually do

something about racism.

Like any book dealing with deep issues such

as race, this book is sure to ruffle some

feathers, make more than a few wince and

really anger others. Nothing is sugar coated.

At just 228 pages, it’s anything but a quick

read. Yes, there’s controversy in Dyson’s views

but it will also open a lot of eyes.

“One of the most frank and searing discussions on race ... a deeply serious, urgent book, which

should take its place in the tradition of Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time and King’s Why We Can’t Wait.”

-The New York Times Book Review

“Readers will find searing moments in Tears We Cannot Stop, when Dyson’s words proves unforgettable...But

more than education, Dyson wants a reckoning.” —The Washington Post

“Here’s a sermon that’s as fierce as it is lucid. It shook me up, but in a good way. This is how it works

if you’re black in America, this is what happens, and this is how it feels. If you’re black, you’ll feel a

spark of recognition in every paragraph. If you’re white, Dyson tells you what you need to know—

what this white man needed to know, at least. This is a major achievement. I read it and said amen.”

—Stephen King

“Impassioned.” —Library Journal

AN EXCERPT: On the invention of

Whiteness:

“Beloved, let me start by telling you an ugly

secret: there is no such thing as white people.

And yet so many of them, so many of you,

exist. Please hear me out. I know you’re flesh

and blood. I know that you use language and

forks and knives. I’m not talking about your

bodies or your garages or your grocery stores.

I’m talking about the politics of whiteness. I’m

talking about an identity that exists apart from

the skin you’re born in. I’m talking about a

meaning of race that supersedes the features

you inherit when you come out of the womb.

You don’t get whiteness from your genes. It is

a social inheritance that is passed on to you as

a member of a particular group.

And it’s killing us, and, quiet as it’s kept, it’s

killing you too.

Race has no meaning outside of the cultures

we live in and the worlds we fashion out of its

force and energy. Whiteness is an advantage

and privilege because you have made it so, not

because the universe demands it.

So I want to tell you right off the bat that

whiteness is made up, and that white history

disguised as American history is a fantasy, as

much a fantasy as white superiority and white

purity. Those are all myths. They’re intellectual

rubbish, cultural garbage. The quicker you

accept that, the better off you’ll be, and so will

the rest of us.

My friends, I know reading this frightens

many of you. It may even anger you. Please

bear with me. Until you make whiteness give

up its secrets none of us will get very far.

Whiteness has privilege and power connected

to it, no matter how poor you are. Of course

the paradox is that even though whiteness is

not real it is still true. I mean true as a force

to be reckoned with. It is true because it has

the power to make us believe it is real and to

punish those who doubt its magic.

Whiteness is slick and endlessly inventive. It

is most effective when it makes itself invisible,

when it appears neutral, human, American.”

It’s not easy making a small car look stylish.

However, Suzuki is the master at it, take their

recent models – Celerio, Baleno and just

recently, the Ignis, they are all trendy, funky

models which relate to a large cross-section

of car buyers.

The Ignis is brand-spanking new and is

dubbed by Suzuki as a small sport utility

vehicle. That sums it up well, it has the looks

of a SUV, but at just 3700mm it is squat and

will appeal to those who like easy entry and

exit along with a tallish driving position and,

of course, a budget price. The newcomer

starts at just $18,990, automatic transmission

will add $1510, while the Limited variant, as

tested, sits at $22,500, although if you want

two-tone paint that’s an additional $490.

Interestingly, the Ignis in Limited form is just

a four-seater, there are only two seat-belts

in the rear and the configuration lends itself

SMALL & SPORTY

WORDS ROSS KIDDIE

more to adaptable load carrying options.

However, there are Isofix child seat tethers

for those who have young ones in tow. If you

want to seat three across the rear, the entrylevel

GLX is a five-seater, albeit it would be

tight widthwise for adults.

The Ignis is also a car which lends itself to

sporty appeal. Sure, it’s not a rocket ship, but

with the way it can be dressed and optioned it

has specification and features which will make

it stand out even more amongst others.

Under the bonnet is a 1.2-litre, fourcylinder

engine and it is engineered for

economy along with respectable power outputs.

Suzuki rate it with a 66kW and 120Nm

outputs, even though torque peaks tallish in

the rev band (4400rpm), the engine works

freely thanks to the matching of it to a

continuously variable automatic transmission.

According to Suzuki’s advertising material,

the Ignis will return a 4.9-litre per 100km

(57mpg) combined cycle fuel usage average.

In my opinion that would be quite achievable,

during evaluation time the trip computer was

constantly showing 6.9l/100km (41mpg) with

a 5l/100km (56mpg) figure cruising quietly at

100km/h, the engine turning over slowly at just

2000rpm in the tallest part of the gearing.

It has taken me a long time to warm to CVT

transmissions, but today’s units are so normal,

the Ignis works through the gearing much like

a traditional automatic. There’s even a sport

mode which will hasten engine revolutions

should the driver decide a little bit of extra

oomph is needed, say for a highway overtake.

In terms of performance, that can be

achieved in around 7.5sec, while a standstill to

100km/h time of 10.9sec is not to be sneezed

at.

The engine is a willing worker and charms

with its quiet operating manner and lively

response – that’s another bonus of CVT, the

engine works unimpeded through the

transmission.

The Ignis sits on a new platform and,

although it isn’t sophisticated, it has been

designed as a weight-saving structure along

with a suspension set-up that will allow for

controlled balance when the corners arrive.

Even though rear wheel freedom is

hampered a little by a torsion beam tube

axle, there is just enough movement so that

mid-corner bumps and ruts don’t upset body

balance nor directional stability.

MOTORING I 12

At almost 1.5m, the Ignis is quite tall, and

body movement over softish spring and

damper settings is noticeable. However,

steerage is unaffected and directional accuracy

is quite sharp. I’d like to have a little more

steering feel through the wheel, but in this

modern age of electric power steering systems

most mainstream cars get a light, as opposed

to a firm feel.

Providing the grip are high quality 16in

Bridgestone tyres, even though their footprint

is small at 175/60, there is an underlying feeling

of grip and control, and for that reason the

Ignis feels quite athletic, which considering its

simplicity underneath, is commendable.

In Limited form the Ignis is comprehensively

equipped. All models represent value for price,

but there are a few goodies in the Limited

which you may not expect in a car for this

price such as satellite navigation, Apple Car Play

and Android Auto, keyless entry and ignition,

cruise control with speed limiter, and digitally

controlled air conditioning, just to name some

of the major items. It also has a high safety

specification.

Even though it is marketed as a sport utility

vehicle, it must be remembered the Ignis is

two-wheel-drive (front) only and it isn’t

engineered for life off-road.

However, if you are after a car which is just

a little out of the ordinary with interesting

internal shapes and colours, and an exterior

look which is standalone, then the Ignis is the

car for you.

ADVICE with

$80

PRIZE

PACK!

QUESTION

In March last year I planted Escallonia Apple Blossom shrubs which are growing

nicely into a compact and pretty hedge. Recently we’ve been advised that due to the

quakes, our sewer pipes will have to be dug up and replaced. This means either

having the shrubs trampled or removing them. Can I uproot the shrubs and place them elsewhere, perhaps in

tubs while the repairs are carried out, and then replant them? They are just gaining strength and coming away

nicely and I’m reluctant to disturb their growth.

Today’s winning question came from Sue Barker. Congratulations!

Escallonia can be

ANSWER transplanted quite easily

compared to many other

shrubs. We would suggest cutting back any new

growth before transplanting, and carrying out the

process during the winter months. The plants can

either be placed in large containers or into your

veggie garden temporarily. Ensure plants are

kept moist throughout the process but do not

over water as this can rot young roots. With

this species, it is better to be a little drier than

over wet.

When you are ready to replant them back into their

original spot, add plenty of Daltons Compost

to give them the best start and add a layer of

mulch on top. After replanting, allow time for the

plants to settle (up to two weeks) before applying

a side dressing of Daltons Premium Tree &

Shrub Fertiliser in spring.

For more gardening advice, read

our How to Grow Fruit Trees guide at

www.daltons.co.nz/how-to-guides

Roses provide lush fl owers, delicious scents and add charm to any

garden. June and July are the best months to plant, relocate and prune

roses (once dormant). When choosing the perfect plant for your garden

or pots, choose from; Old Fashioned, Hybrid Tea, Floribunda, Shrub or

Climber varieties.

and eye-opening aplomb. Few

• By Mike Yardley

SELECTION: Seafood for sale at the Tsukiji Market.

ON ARRIVAL in Tokyo, I

was looking for a sure-fire

way to blitz the jet-lag.

The sensory onslaught

of Tsukiji Market fitted the

bill perfectly, as I revelled in

the colour, the cacophony

and organised chaos of

the world’s largest seafood

market.

Spanning the size of 430

rugby fields, the market

metrics are gob-smacking.

It’s the stomping ground for

50,000 workers, where over

1700 stalls sell 2000-tonnes

of seafood daily, in 480

varieties. This grand encounter

with the kitchen of

Japan groans with polystyrene

crates proudly splayed

with every marketable sea

creature – including whale

meat.

Fancy watching the daily

Tuna Auction? You’ll need

to get here at the ungodly

hour of 3am, to score a visitor’s

slot in the tuna auction

room. The dealing is all

done by 6.30am.

Humming with postauction

activity, later in

the morning, a veritable

army of workers hauled

freshly sold fish on forklifts,

hand-carts and “turret

trucks”, like speed-freak

bees in a choreographed

hive. I gazed in awe of hulking

blue-fin tuna the size of

refrigerators.

Half of Tokyo seemed to

be out sampling and shopping.

It’s a riveting introduction

to the core ingredients

in Japanese cuisine

and the ebullient vendors

happily hand-out free tastings.

I grazed on seaweed,

benito shavings, dumplings

in soybean flour, smoked

fish and kimchee squid.

Best of all, Tsukiji’s quintessential

sushi restaurants

offer the freshest raw fish

fix possible. My tour group

headed for Sushi Daiwa,

situated next to Sushi Dai,

which are the two famous

sushi houses. Their pilgrimage-like

pulling power

means you may well find

yourself queuing outside for

several hours. We lucked in,

with only a 15min wait.

Although they staff are

too polite to say so, you are

expected to eat and run

at these sushi counters.

Alongside the delectable

slivers of tuna draped over

a bed of rice, we noshed on

congee reel, sea urchin and

that celebrated Japanese

delight, tamagoyaki, egg

omelette roll.

If you’re sizing up one big

blow-out in Tokyo, the Park

Hyatt is the pinnacle of

high-end hospitality.

The city’s most decorated

hotel is the Park Hyatt

which graces the upperlevels

of a Kenzo Tangedesigned

high-rise, lording

over west Shinjuku.

Considered the father

of modern Japanese

architecture, he was the

master planner for the

rebuilding of Hiroshima

after World War 2. With

the hotel floors beginning

on the 41st level with the

glass-walled reception,

you can be assured your

accommodation will be

dressed with a sweeping

panorama of the neondrenched,

sky-scrapered

expanse of Tokyo.

Service is ultra-attentive

without being starchy.

Whether you’re staying

in-house or not, the dining

destinations are unmissable.

BUSY: Eat fresh raw fish at Sushi Daiwa.

Clever comedy but no side-splitter

The Pickle King

Produced by Indian Ink

Written by Jacob Rajan and

Justin Lewis

Reviewed by Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

YOU COULD be easily fooled

for thinking The Pickle King is a

bit of a tragedy, theming around

a girl who believes she is cursed

and everyone she loves dies.

But with a captivating set, vivacious

characters and just a touch

of neat choreography, Indian

Ink’s original show brought a

touch of warmth into the city’s

cold wintry night.

The show staged at the Isaac

Theatre Royal last week, is part of

the company’s 20th-anniversary

national tour.

Covering the themes of love,

death and adversity immigrants

face when moving to New Zealand,

The Pickle King is about a

blind receptionist who falls in

love with another employee at a

run-down hotel in Wellington.

At the same time the blind

receptionist, who believes she is

cursed, falls in love with another

employee, a mysterious guest

checks into the hotel who she

believes is the Grim Reaper.

The show was a highly-anticipated

comedy, having won an

LIGHT AND DARKNESS: Andrew Ford as George Reaper, Kalyani Nagarajan as Sasha and

Vanessa Kumar as Jeena in Indian Ink’s original production The Pickle King. ​

award at the Edinburgh Festival

Fringe and Chapman Tripp

Theatre Awards.

It is easy to see why it is

award-winning in the way it is

professionally executed, but the

storyline was not life-changing

and it didn’t make me howl with

laughter like I thought it would.

It was lovely the show’s original

performance 15 years ago had

been adapted to feature a love

story around two women rather

than a man and woman.

The same-sex love story

between the leading characters

Sasha (Kalyani Nagarajan) and

Jeena (Vanessa Kumar) was extremely

natural, and was a credit

to how far New Zealanders have

come to accepting gay relationships.

With the company always

featuring performers of Indian

descent in the show, I loved the

way the setting was designedthe

walls were covered in

brightly coloured Indian-inspired

paintings creating a mystique

atmosphere. But you were soon

reminded the show was actually

set in Wellington, as every time

a door or window opened gusty

sound effects and the odd flying

prop would blast across the stage.

A non-speaking pianist is the

cherry-on-top to the hotel-esque

atmosphere but some of the music

played although beautiful, was

slightly depressing.

But bright costumes with a

broad spectrum of masks ranging

from covering the actor’s full

face to just partially made for a

visual treat balancing joy with

darkness.

Andrew Ford mastered his

role of the scary-death-inducing

George Reaper, his voice was

particularly creepy and one could

not help but watch with thrilling

fear. But, to be honest, I didn’t

get why his character had such a

fascination with pickles, which

the entire show is supposedly

based around. The pickles didn’t

seem to have any relevance to the

overall storyline.

But there is a bit of a twist to

the end of the story that makes

the death-like George Reaper not

what he seems.

You will have to catch up with

the show to find out.

Flanagan comes back from injury for World University Games

MIDDLE DISTANCE runner

Rosa Flanagan has qualified

for the 5000m at the World

University Games in Taiwan in

August.

Flanagan, 21, achieved the

qualifying time for the games

at the Portland Track Festival

last week and is now the only

Canterbury athlete in the

13-strong New Zealand team.

Qualifying for the event has

been one of Flanagan’s major

goals this year after a bad run

of injuries.

Last year, she suffered a stress

fracture in her tibia, which

meant she had to resort to aqua

jogging, swimming, biking

and cross training while she

recovered.

She then suffered labral

tears in both her hips, which

resulted in her missing the

majority of the New Zealand

and Australian track seasons,

making it tough to qualify for

major events.

She has spent the last two

months in Santa Monica,

United States, training and

competing in a number of

1500m, 3000m steeplechase,

and 5000m track races.

She has previously won the

New Zealand 3000m and

3000m steeplechase titles and

represented New Zealand at

the world championships

in 2015. After the World

University Games she hopes to

represent New Zealand at the

2018 Commonwealth Games

and 2020 Olympic Games.

ADVICE FROM TOPAI-AVEAI

Last year’s UC Championship most

valuable player Cruz Topai-Aveai returned

to Shirley Boys’ High on Tuesday to pass

on words of wisdom to the school’s junior

rugby players. Topai-Aveai led Shirley

BHS to consecutive UC Championship

grand-final appearances in 2015 and

2016 before moving to Sydney to join the

South Sydney Rabbitohs. After a handful

of games for the South Sydney under-20

side he was offered a first grade contract

with the Cronulla Sharks. He will return

to Sydney later this week and is expected

to return from injury for the Sharks

under-20 side next month.

CBHS TO HOST NELSON

Christchurch Boys’ High School will host

Nelson College in a top of the table UC

Championship clash on Saturday. Both

Christchurch Boys’ and Nelson have just

one defeat to their name in this campaign.

The home side come into the game on

the back of a nail-biting 25-23 final

minute win over St Andrew’s College.

Christchurch Boys’ trailed St Andrew’s

by five points with just two minutes

remaining. Rico Syme was the hero,

coming off the bench to make his first XV

debut with 20min remaining and scoring

a breakaway try in the dying stages, before

Alex Harford’s kick sealed the win.

his game on the clay courts of

Europe.

Falck, 15, is currently in

Amsterdam as part of Tennis

New Zealand’s targeted athlete

programme.

He will compete in two

grade four junior International

Tennis Federation events in the

Netherlands, a grade two event

in Germany, and another event

in Fiji on his way home.

The Shirley Boys’ High

School student is coached by

his father Andrew, who is head

coach at the Burwood Park

club.

Andrew believes the eight

weeks of clay court play will

benefit his son’s game.

“Playing on clay is a great

way for young players to

develop their game and it’s

a surface we don’t have easy

access to here,” said Andrew.

Falck is the only Canterbury

tennis player in the targeted

athlete programme.

He won the 14 and under

national title earlier this year

and represented New Zealand

at the junior Davis Cup in

March.

Two other Canterbury

juniors will also have brief

spells in Europe.

National 16 and under

champion Dylan Heap will

head to Amsterdam for three

weeks of training and also play

Warriors name Foran for Bulldogs clash

WARRIORS COACH Stephen

Kearney will give five-eighth

Kieran Foran until the last

minute to prove his fitness ahead

of tomorrow’s game against the

Bulldogs at Mt Smart Stadium.

Foran hurt his quad muscle in

the side’s win over the Titans 11

days ago and is showing signs

of improvement. The extra rest

thanks to last weekend’s bye has

helped him have a chance of being

fit to face the side he will play

for in 2018.

Kearney has named the Kiwis

international in the No 6 jumper

in a side that has a familiar look

to it.

The one glaring omission is

centre Solomone Kata, who is

unavailable for the game due to

the death of his brother back in

Tonga.

“Sol has had a tragic event

Latest Christchurch news at www.

happen – his brother has passed

away in Tonga,” Kearney told

Radio Sport.

“He will be flying out late

tonight to attend his brother’s

funeral,” Kearney said.

“He was only a young guy and

it was a tragic event – the club’s

best wishes and thoughts are

with Sol and his family.”

Rookie Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad

comes onto the wing with

David Fusitua moving into the

centres to replace Kata.

Kearney refused the temptation

to include the club’s all-time

leading try-scorer Manu Vatuvei,

who is working his way back

from injury. Vatuvei has been

included on an extended bench.

Also named on an extended

bench is prop James Gavet, who

missed the game against the Titans

with a hamstring strain, and

Thursday June 22 2017

Ata Hingano, who came on to replace

Foran when the five-eighth

got injured.

The Warriors have confirmed

they will not be bringing in

a replacement for the nowdeparted

assistant coach Steve

McNamara, who this week

took up the vacant head

coaching job at the Catalan

Dragons in the United

Kingdom’s Super League.

Outstanding fuel

economy in Outlander

• By Ross Kiddie

WHEN Mitsubishi

launched its popular

Outlander sport utility

vehicle in hybrid form, it

was almost deemed revolutionary.

That was in 2014, and

since then the PHEV (plugin

electric vehicle) has sold

well in New Zealand –

globally too for that matter

– and is about to become

even more appealing for it

has just had a fairly hefty

makeover.

The concept, shape and

ease of use hasn’t changed

one bit, but the new

Outlander PHEV is fitted

out with a lot of new

kit, most of it is electronic

thereby enhancing the

infotainment and communication

systems, along

with the inclusion of an

ultra fast charge mechanism,

higher priority for

electric operation-only and

the inclusion of advanced

safety protocols.

Column space doesn’t

allow comprehensive detailing

of the new features but

I can say the Outlander in

this form is engineered with

a greater emphasis towards

propulsion through the

electric motors.

For that matter, the new

fast charge connection will

fit well with a comprehensive

project nationwide to

install fast charge stations.

Of course, the PHEV can

also be charged through a

household supply using a

separate connection.

However, there’s more to

PHEV than just plugging

in, charging and then driving

off, the hybrid system

is true hybrid. Under the

bonnet sits a four-cylinder,

2-litre engine which is

rated at 88kW. It’s there to

charge the batteries when

they run low, as well as

providing drive if there is

no charge available. On the

subject of drive, the PHEV

is true to the Outlander

concept, it gets four-wheeldrive

courtesy of a second

electric motor at the rear.

Amidst the complexity

of the hybrid system the

MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER: Plug-in hybrid.

PHEV is capable of returning

some amazing fuel

usage statistics through

the varying drive modes,

although electric drive is

prioritised.

At best possible usage

Mitsubishi rate the PHEV

at an amazing 1.7-litres per

100km (166mpg). That,

of course, can only be

achieved under certain circumstances,

but on a daily

commute it can’t be ruled

out.

• Price – Mitsubishi

Outlander PHEV,

$67,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4695mm;

width, 1800mm;

height, 1710mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1998cc, 88kW,

189Nm, continuously

variable automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10sec

• Fuel usage –

1.7l/100km

An overnight charge (6.5

hours) will cost around $2

depending on your service

provider and it is good for

a 54km journey.

Fast charge rates at a pay

station will cost, on current

rates, 25c/minute plus

25c/kWh. A 20min time

frame should be expected

to charge from zero to 80

per cent.

Even though the

Outlander PHEV is a

complicated car and takes

some understanding, buyers

needn’t be put off by its

complexity. If you just get

POWER:

Plug in and

charge

up for an

electric

drive of

54km.

in and drive it, it quickly

becomes familiar and

drives little differently to

the standard vehicle it is

based on.

Also, if you are a technophile

there are a multitude

of information displays to

keep you happy, they indicate

the varying modes that

the vehicle is utilising at

any given time.

Even though I didn’t take

the PHEV off-road – only

for the sake I didn’t want to

get it dirty thanks to a wet

Queen’s Birthday weekend

making off-road conditions

muddy – you can drive the

PHEV with the mindset it is

a useful off-the-seal traveller

with suspension capable

of absorbing a bit of rough

stuff and ground clearance

which allows travel over

undulating ground.

The PHEV also has composure

on the highway, it

travels very quietly – no

surprise there – and it

steers and handles like an

SUV should. It feels quite

sprightly given the torque

generation of electric

power returning a 10sec

time to make 100km/h

from a standstill.

There’s been a common

misconception that you

have to drive hybrids long

distances to recapture the

cost of purchase.

That’s certainly not the

case with the Outlander

PHEV. It comes priced

realistically from $60,990.

The evaluation car was

VRX-specced which adds

$7000 and you get all the

Mitsubishi high-grade kit

– leather trim, heated front

seats, paddle gear shifters,

sat nav, Siri voice recognition

and a multitude of

other items. It’s fair to say

the VRX sits on the outer

periphery of the luxury car

market.

If you think that longevity

is a worry, take into

account that the hybrid/

electric componentry is

covered for an eight-year

period (or 160,000km) and

the engine/driveline is covered

for 10 years. Peace of

mind really.

REAA - Disclosure rules

when selling a home

Real estate advertisements are designed to make

every property look like a dream buy.

That’s why they gloss over the

negative aspects and linger on the good

points, wanting you to be drawn in by

the sun-drenched location rather than

be put off by lack of garaging. It’s no

crime to gloss over a property’s quirks,

but lying by omission or design about

more serious matters is not allowed. If

you do this when selling your property

you may be at risk of being sued by the

purchaser.

When you’re ready to sell your

property it’s a good idea to get legal

advice about your obligations before

you sign an agency agreement. Most

of these agreements, which set out the

terms and conditions of your contract

with the real estate agent, require you

to confirm that you are unaware of any

undisclosed defects

in the property and

that you haven’t

withheld any

information about it.

As a seller, you must

also confirm that

your property has all

the necessary consents

and code compliance

certificates for any

building work. Any outstanding consents,

including ones that involve any works at a

neighbour’s property, should be disclosed

to the agent.

This is important for several reasons.

Licensed real estate agents have

clear obligations when it comes to

disclosure. They must not mislead a

seller or a potential buyer, or withhold

any information. While it’s not up

to the agent to uncover any hidden

defects in a property, they must tell any

prospective buyers what they know.

Under the Real Estate Agents Act

2008, if licensed real estate agents

suspect that a property may have a

defect then they are obliged to ask

the seller about it, or advise potential

buyers of any risks. For example, if a

property is next door to a proposed

new development, or if it’s in an area

that’s been subject to flooding, the agent

must tell prospective buyers rather than

turning a blind eye.

If your property may be prone to

weathertightness issues thanks to its

age or cladding, then the agent may

have to disclose this potential risk to

NEW LISTINGS

throughout Christchurch

and bookings, contact

Mike Fulham

M: 021 300 567

E: mike@starmedia.kiwi

prospective buyers. If it doesn’t have

any weathertightness problems it may

be worth getting this confirmed in an

expert report by a qualified building

inspector who has professional

indemnity insurance, understands

the strict legal requirements of their

role and carries out their work in

accordance with the New Zealand

Property Inspection Standard. This will

help make the sale process as efficient

as possible.

If you know there are issues

with the property, whether

it’s something small like a

garage door not working

properly, or a bigger deal

like an unconsented deck, it’s best to

discuss them with the agent you are

working with. They can help you decide

how to manage the problem, whether

that means fixing it, or disclosing it to

potential buyers. However, a licensed

real estate agent must not disclose any

problems with your property to buyers

without getting your consent first. If a

seller doesn’t agree on a disclosure, the

agent is required to stop working for

them rather than disclose any defects

without consent.

These rules offer more protection to

buyers than the traditional attitude of

‘caveat emptor’ (buyer beware), which

assumed that the seller would always

know more than the buyer and any sale

was at the buyer’s risk. However, buyers

should always do their own research

about a property before signing a sale

and purchase agreement. Buyers should

also ask the agent about anything they

are concerned about, no matter how

trivial it may seem. It’s far better to get

an answer upfront than find out when

it’s too late.
