reveals

fire safety

issues

• By Gabrielle Stuart

AN INVESTIGATION has found

potential issues with fire protection

walls and floors in Canterbury

District Health Board hospitals.

As part of its earthquake repair

work, the CDHB has investigated

its passive fire protection walls and

floors, which are designed to keep a

fire from spreading.

CDHB acting chief executive

Mary Gordon said the investigation

found “a number of potential compliance

issues.”

The CDHB wouldn’t say what the

specific issues were or what buildings

were affected.

But CDHB board member Aaron

Keown said the problems were

mostly around holes drilled through

the firewalls or floors to fit new services,

like gas pipes and IT system

wiring.

The cost of the repair was currently

unknown, but was likely to be

“quite massive,” he said.

Fire Service specialist investigator

Mark Thomas said that would be

a particular concern in a hospital,

because in a fire patients would

be moved to another part of the

building, rather than evacuated

outside.

If there was even a small hole in

a firewall, they could be at risk, he

said.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the formation of the New

Zealand Boxing Assn on July 4, 1902. On the same date

in 1977, hundreds of people were evacuated as serious

flooding affected the city. On July 6, 1887, heavy floods

inundated the city, three young men drowned in the

Avon River as a result of a boating mishap. On July 7,

1908, widespread flooding affected the province. On

the same day in 1986, heavy rain flooded the northern

suburbs. On July 8, 1880, the Canterbury Society of

Arts was formed. On July 9, 1863, civic tree planting

began. Part of the day’s planting was a commemorative

tree, generally regarded as the beginning of the Botanic

Gardens.

Cathedral letter ‘wishy-washy’

• By Bridget Rutherford

WINSTON PETERS has

refused to sign a letter

supporting the restoration

deal for the Christ Church

Cathedral.

Leaders of National, Labour,

Act, Green, Maori and United

Future signed a letter to Bishop

Victoria Matthews on Tuesday

saying the offer represented a

clear and agreed way forward.

“We agree in principle to support

legislation that will enable

the reinstatement of the Christ

Church Cathedral should the

synod vote in its favour, to be

commenced once a new Government

has formed,” it said.

But the New Zealand First

leader said he did not sign because

it was “wishy-washy.”

“We agree in principle. What

does that mean?” said Mr

Peters.

“You’re either going to do it or

you’re not going to do it.”

Mr Peters said he was in

favour of the restoration of the

Cathedral, but the Government

should be offering more money.

“It’s not just a building, it’s

something far more important.”

Mr Peters visited Christchurch

in May calling for

the restoration of the

Cathedral, and slated the

Anglican Church for not

acting sooner.

On Tuesday,

Minister supporting

Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Nicky

Wagner and

Mayor Lianne

Dalziel tabled

a new restoration

deal for

the Anglican

Church to consider.

The new offer

included a $10 million

pledge from the

city council – subject

to consultation – with

a Government pledge

of $10 million, and

a $15 million loan

that would not need

to be paid back if

restoration was done

within budget, and in

a reasonable time.

The deal also

involved setting

up an independent

processes, and a

joint venture between

the Church Property

Trustees and the trust

to govern and manage

the restoration

project.

The Great Christchurch

Buildings Trust

would also pledge

$13.7 million.

The offer will be

considered by the

diocese’s synod – a governing

body made up of more than 200

parishioners and priests – before

it votes on the Cathedral’s future

on September 9.

Labour MP and Christchurch

issues spokeswoman Megan

Woods said the letter signalled

if there was a change in

Government in the September

23 election, the offer still stood.

Green MP Eugenie Sage

said it gave certainty to the synod.

“I think the offer is a really

good one. I hope the synod will

look on it favourably.”

Probe reveals hospital fire safety issues

•From page 1

Said Mr Thomas: “You don’t

take a sick person and put them

outside at three in the morning,

so in a fire they initially do

a horizontal evacuation, past

smoke and fire stop doors. So if

they’ve gone past it, to what they

perceive is safety, but the wall

is compromised, it is possible

it (the fire) could come past to

where they are,” he said.

Fire Fighting Pacific Canterbury

service manager Charlie

Loughnan said he believed

working firewalls could have

prevented the fire in London’s

Grenfell Tower last month from

spreading.

“My opinion is that the cladding

burnt the building down,

but didn’t kill anyone. It was the

lack of fire separations inside the

building which was the cause of

the deaths: The fire getting from

the apartment into the lobby,

from the lobby into a stairwell,

then blocking the stairwell.”

He said a lack of firewalls was

also what allowed the 1947 Ballantynes

fire to spread so fast,

killing 41 people.

He said world-leading regulations

around firewalls were

brought in after the tragedy, but

they depended on the firewalls

not being compromised.

Ms Gordon said work was

being done to investigate and

rectify the issues.

She said all hospital buildings

had fire detection and suppression

systems, and the safety of

staff, patients and visitors was

her top priority.

“We don’t have any immediate

concerns,” she said.

She said the work was a “proactive

investigation done on our

own initiative,” not a requirement.

She said the Ministry of

Health was aware of the work,

and was “reviewing the systems”

as part of its planning process.

In Brief

CTV SITE PLAN

Families and friends of those

killed in the CTV building collapse

will be shown a final design

of how the site will be landscaped

next month. An Otakaro spokesman

said the area would be a

“peaceful place” made up of grass,

greenery and seating. The CTV

building, on the corner of Madras

and Cashel Sts, collapsed in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

killing 115 people. A survey of

the site and ground conditions

would be done in the next few

weeks to see what plants are best

suited.

BUSINESS LEADER RESIGNS

Canterbury Employers’ Chamber

of Commerce chief executive

Peter Townsend has resigned

after 21 years in the role. His

final day will be on November

30. Mr Townsend said he would

have stood down earlier, had it

not been for the September 4,

2010, and February 22, 2011,

earthquakes, which were the

most challenging years of his

career. Mr Townsend still serves

on a number of boards, including

Otakaro.

$18K ON RED ZONE SIGNS

More than $18,000 has been

spent on manufacturing and

installing new street signs in the

residential red zone. The city

council, in conjunction with the

Avon Otakaro Network, installed

94 street signs and 26 wayfinding

signs using special brackets so

they can’t be removed without a

special tool. Many of the original

signs were taken by people as

souvenirs.

The new Justice and Emergency

permanent security screening

to develop consistent and

Elderly man

fights with

attacker

• By Andrew King

THE ELDERLY man who was

robbed in broad daylight at a

Bryndwr ATM on Monday tried

to fight off his attacker.

The victim, in his 80s, was

withdrawing a sum of money

from a machine at the intersection

of Wairakei and Greers Rds

at about 11am.

The offender, described as a

Maori or Pacific Islander man

in his 30s to 40s, solid build, of

average height and a short beard,

wearing a beanie, a black puffer

jacket, dark-coloured long pants

and white sneakers, approached

him from behind.

He hovered over his shoulder at

the ATM until the man had the

money in his hand, that’s when

he went for it.

A short struggle ensued and the

offender then fled in a vehicle, believed

to be a white station wagon,

similar to a Subaru Impreza, and

travelled along Wairakei Rd, east,

towards the city.

The victim was not injured,

but understandably shaken up, a

police spokeswoman said.

Lions boost for terror victim

• By Timothy Brown

A FRIEND of the Christchurch

man stabbed in the London

terror attack has gone to

extraordinary lengths to bring

him some comfort.

Oliver Dowling and his French

girlfriend, Marie Bondeville,

were among victims of the Borough

Market terrorist attack in

London on June 3, in which eight

people were killed and 48 others

injured.

Mr Dowling met William

McKee while at high school in

Christchurch.

Mr McKee, of Dunedin, said

he was shocked to hear of Mr

Dowling’s injuries – which

included multiple stab wounds –

and hatched a plan to show him

how much he meant to those on

the other side of the world.

Knowing Mr Dowling supported

the Scottish rugby team

and that three Scottish players

would be visiting Dunedin on

June 11 with the British and Irish

Lions, he took his video camera

to Dunedin Airport to see if

they would send a message to his

injured friend.

Scottish captain Greig Laidlaw

was among the first to step off

stabbed during the Borough Market terror attack in London.

the plane and was more than

willing to help.

He was also able to rope injured

fullback Stuart Hogg into

sending Mr Dowling a message

of support.

The Otago rugby team also got

in on the act, as did Dunedin

Mayor Dave Cull and Prime

Minister Bill English.

Mr Dowling attended the

University of Otago in 2003,

prompting Mr Cull to describe

him as an “asset” to the city in

the mayor’s message of support.

The whole thing has come

about because you feel a bit

useless over here and you want

him to know he’s supported,” Mr

McKee said.

“When you are so far away

from these tragic events you

want to do something . . . these

sort of things affect everyone and

shock us equally.

“You want to try and offer your

support. I thought he’s going to

have a long road to recovery, as

is his girlfriend, so why not try

and put a smile on his face and

let him know that everyone is

thinking of him way over here?”

Mr Dowling and Miss Bondeville

were out in London having

dinner at the time the attacks

unfolded, Mr McKee said.

“What a horrific experience to

go through.”

Both required surgery for their

wounds and were slowly recovering

physically. The video had

come as a huge morale boost to

Mr Dowling.

“He’s got personally in contact

a couple of times and said ‘thank

you very much’. His sister saw it .

. . she was thrilled. He messaged

and said ‘thanks very much’. He

was chuffed, but probably a little

embarrassed,” Mr McKee said.

Those involved in the video

were more than willing to help,

which was heartening, he said.

The city council put the call

out last month to see if there

were any groups that wanted to

register their interest for items

salvaged from the earthquakedamaged

stadium.

Project director Lee Butcher

said there had been interest from

across the country – from Ashburton

to Waiheke Island.

He said there were requests for

20,000 seats.

“In addition, there’s been requests

for coolers, tables, toilets,

doors, signage and other sporting

memorabilia.”

Mr Butcher said the interest

had come from a wide range

of clubs and individuals, from

scout and motor speedway clubs,

to farmers in South Canterbury.

“We are currently reviewing

all the submissions, and will

continue to keep people informed

of progress and the next

JONTY WAS just 10-weeks-old

for the first time.

That was five years ago, and

Sam and Maree Smolenski have

since become very familiar with

the hospital.

For the first 96 days of his

life, Jonty was kept in neonatal

intensive care. He had problems

seeing, hearing and eating, and

seemed to be hit far harder by

colds and flus than other children.

Yet the doctors could not

understand what was causing

Jonty’s problems – and it was

three years before they had an

answer, Mrs Smolenski said.

That came almost by chance,

she said.

Jonty has trichothiodystrophy

– a recessive genetic disorder so

rare he is the only person in New

Zealand currently diagnosed

with it.

But a geneticist at Christchurch

Hospital had seen cases

before, and recognised the symptoms,

including Jonty’s distinctive

brittle hair, she said.

“He has never ever had a hair

he looked like that. His first lot

of hair just rubbed right off and

knobbled up around his head,”

she said.

Although they finally knew

the cause of their son’s problems,

it came with bad news – it was

untreatable, and many children

with the condition died young,

she said.

“It was quite a shock. We don’t

know how long we’ll have with

Jonty. Every winter there’s a risk

he might get an illness he doesn’t

recover from,” she said.

Spending so much time in hospital

away from their two other

children, Lachie, 7, and Ruby, 3,

made it harder, she said.

But that was when the community

rallied.

Mr Smolenski is a harness

racing trainer and driver, and

comes from a racing family –

his grandfather was driving

and training legend Jack

Smolenski.

The racing community rallied

last year to raise more than

$75,000 for the family, with even

world driving champion Dexter

Dunn wearing special racing

colours in Jonty’s honour as a

fundraiser.

That meant the whole family

could go to international conferences

in the United States last

year and again this year to meet

with specialists and with other

people who have the condition,

Motive for alleged attack

on policeman a mystery

• By Andrew King

DETECTIVES are investigating

whether an alleged attack on a

police officer at his home was

a case of mistaken identity or

something more sinister.

Two men and a woman were

arrested on Monday night and

appeared in the district court

on Tuesday after the incident in

Charteris Bay.

It’s alleged Ngarie Maree

Sadlier, 38, approached the

property impersonating a police

officer at 10.28pm while Norton

Lindsay Adams, 26, and Matthew

Winara Webber, 28, waited

outside.

When the officer came outside

to see what was going on he

placed Sadlier under arrest for

trespassing.

A scuffle then ensued, with

Adams and Sadlier allegedly

attacking him. They escaped in

a vehicle driven by Adams, but

were arrested a short time later.

A shotgun was found concealed

not ruled out the attack could be

targeted and have launched an

investigation, Canterbury Metro

Commander Superintendent

Lane Todd said.

He confirmed to The Star they

are exploring the gang angle and

if it was mistaken identity or a

targeted attack.

District Commander Superintendent

John Price said he

hoped it was random rather than

targeted.

“I have spoken to the officer

involved and he is obviously

shaken up,” he said.

Adams was remanded in

custody charged with failure to

stop, reckless driving, aggravated

assault and unlawful possession

of a firearm.

Sadlier, whose occupation is

listed as a scientist, was released

on bail charged with aggravated

of a firearm.

All three will reappear on July

Fundraiser pays for vet bills

• By Gabrielle Stuart

AFTER BEING attacked by a

knife-wielding man in her home

two years ago, Pip Clark felt she

had seen the worst of humanity.

But last week, she said she saw

the best.

People have donated more

than $6500 to help pay her vet

bills for her five-year-old standard

poodle, Charlie, who needed

an expensive operation on his

intestines.

Ms Clark credited Charlie for

saving her life when she was attacked

by the intruder two years

ago.

She was getting ready for work

in November, 2015, when she

came across the intruder. He

started punching her, then went

at her with a knife, slicing her

forearm, she said.

That was when Charlie arrived

and ran at the attacker, scaring

him off. Police were called, but

the man has not been found.

Ms Clark said Charlie was

her hero, not only during the

attack but in the months afterward

when she felt unsafe at

home.

Last month, Charlie became

very sick. The vet found his

intestines were blocked, and he

would need an operation.

She said it came at a terrible

time as she was only working

part-time herself because of her

own medical problems, so she

was struggling financially.

But after an article in The Star

last week, she said donations

had poured in – just one day

after it ran she said she had

more than enough to pay for the

operation, and she asked Givealittle

to close the page.

“Some people donated $500,

which shocked me, and others

said I don’t have much but here’s

$10. I know that’s a huge deal

when you don’t have much,” she

said.

She said all the care and

well-wishes from strangers had

meant a lot.

“I was so stressed and so overwhelmed

by it all, and this, all

the donations and the messages,

has meant such a lot,” she said.

“In my life I’ve seen mostly

the worst of humanity, unfortunately,

so this has restored my

faith, I suppose.”

She said Charlie had to go

back to the vet several times

after the operation because of

complications, but he was now

recovering.

“I thought he was going to

die three times, and after going

through that I’m so exhausted

but I’m so thankful. I don’t

know what I would have done

without him,” she said.

Dirty tunnel

cops criticism

• By Caitlin Miles

THE CLEANLINESS of the

Lyttelton Tunnel is in the spotlight.

Lyttelton Community Association

chairman Ken Maynard said

the state of the tunnel has “been a

problem for a while.”

There are black streaks down

the walls. It needs a general spring

clean,” Mr Maynard said.

New Zealand Transport Agency

is in charge of the tunnel’s maintenance

– it receives about one

complaint every month.

NZTA maintenance contract

manager Barry Stratton said since

the February 22, 2011, earthquake

things had got worse.

There are a number of reasons

why the tunnel is currently, and

since the earthquakes, a much

dirtier environment than it used

to be,” Mr Stratton said.

After the tunnel was reopened

following the earthquake, up to

eight tonnes of dirt and dust was

cleared every month.

As a result, last year NZTA

made the Covered Loads bylaw

to stop loose material flying off

trucks and settling in the tunnel.

Since then the most recent dust

count has more than halved.

The tunnel walls are washed

every three weeks, but Mr Maynard

said it needs to be done more often.

Chch cop spreads

Sideline abuse is

a problem in New

Zealand, but in the

Solomon Islands it

can escalate into

attempted murder

– as a Christchurch

policeman found

out first-hand.

Nicholas Jones

reports

DETECTIVE Sergeant

Darren Folau has been in

the Solomons for various

stretches since 2002.

He saw first-hand

the lawlessness and

violence that took the

country to the brink and

saw an Australian-led

peacekeeping effort that

finished last week after 14

years.

Detective Sergeant

Folau’s closest scrape came

not when on patrol, but

at a weekend rugby game.

Like other Kiwi police

officers working in the

country, he’s helped build

up the sport, particularly

by mentoring referees.

That’s what he was doing

at a game between two

village-based teams during

the height of the often

deadly conflict between

ethnic groups, known as

“the tensions”.

“Somebody knocked

the ref out for awarding

a dodgy try, the ref was a

wantok [kin member] of

the other team, so they

started chasing this player

around the field. It was like

the Benny Hill Show, really

– people chasing each

other with bush knives and

machetes.”

Detective Sergeant

Folau went to the referee’s

aid when he heard a

pop.

“And I looked up and

there was bloke from less

than 5m shooting at us

with a .45 pistol. I heard

the pops go past my ears.

It was a former policeman

who was a militant.

“He wasn’t a good shot,

that’s for sure, otherwise I

wouldn’t be here telling the

story. That’s the volatility –

it can just escalate within

“He wasn’t a good shot, that’s

volatility – it can just escalate

within seconds.”

The Regional Assistance Mission

to Solomon Islands cost

New Zealand $150 million, with

more than 1000 Defence Force

personnel and 800 police serving

over the 14 years.

Australia led Ramsi at a cost of

almost $3 billion, answering the

plea for help from the Solomons

Government in 2003.

Detective Sergeant Folau’s

work included a leading role in

the operation against warlord

Harold Keke, who was jailed

for life for murdering a Cabinet

minister in the first of the socalled

tension trials.

He said the change over Ramsi’s

14 years had been dramatic.

“When we first got here it was

complete lawlessness, it was

ruled by gun. The police were

corrupt and they were ruling

by gun. The infrastructure had

fallen over, the government had

collapsed with finances, the hospital

was almost non-existent.

The Solomon Islands was on the brink of collapse during

more than 100 people killed and around 40,000 driven

from their homes.

•After the Solomons Government asked for help, the Ramsi

and police officers, primarily from Australia and New

Zealand along with representatives from several Pacific

During her three-day visit

recently, Deputy Prime Minister

Paula Bennett signed an agreement

that will keep eight New

Zealand Police advisers in the

country.

Folau will return to policing

in Christchurch at the end

of the year after helping with

the changeover. He wanted to

the countless Solomon Island

Cup to honour football great

FOOTBALL great Steve Sumner

will be remembered at the

Christchurch Casino Golden

Oldies Sports Celebration 2018,

with teams to play for a trophy

in his name.

The inaugural Steve Sumner

Cup will be unveiled at the

week-long Golden Oldies World

Football Festival, as part of

the overall event that will run

throughout April.

Golden Oldies Football manager

for the event and former All

Whites captain, Earle Thomas,

said it was a privilege to be the

first event to honour Sumner’s

contribution to football.

“We are extremely grateful

to Steve’s family for allowing

us to name the cup for the first

division competition at Golden

Oldies World Football Festival

in his honour.”

Sumner captained the All

Whites to their first ever world

cup finals appearance in Spain

in 1982, and was synonymous

with Christchurch United in the

1970s and 80s.

He died in February after a

long battle with prostate cancer.

The Sumner family want to

keep Steve’s legacy alive and are

happy for the Golden Oldies

event to name the cup in his

from April 15-22 at Hagley Park.

It is one of 10 sports – rugby,

hockey, netball, basketball,

cricket, squash, golf, lawns bowls

and football – which make up

the month long event expected

to attract 10,000 people.

Toby’s trunk load of memories

• By Gabrielle Stuart

Firefighter’s

helmet found

EXCAVATORS demolishing a

Canterbury District Health Board

building have made a strange

discovery – an 80-year-old

firefighter’s helmet.

The helmet was discovered

encased in mud below the former

sexual health clinic on St Asaph

St, which is earmarked to be the

site of the new energy centre.

It was spotted by excavators

who were digging out the fill at

the bottom of the lift shaft.

The helmet is made from layers

of cork, covered with cotton canvas

and painted.

Fire helmet expert Andy Turnham

told the CDHB the find was

an old Cromwell 2240 Telbon fire

helmet made by Helmets Ltd of

Wheathampstead, Hertfordshire,

United Kingdom.

He said the lining dates it between

1934 and 1948 and it could

have been an officer’s helmet, but

was not valuable, he said.

THANKS TO the generosity

of the community, 10-year-old

Toby Matthews has had his

dream trip to Africa – and he

may get a ride in a firetruck and

a chance to see a tiger, too.

Toby is deaf and learned last

year he is also going blind,

because of an incurable genetic

condition.

After Toby’s story was published

in The Star, more than

$16,000 was donated online to

help his family give him experiences

before he loses his vision.

It meant he was able to travel

to Africa last month with his

father, builder Logan Matthews,

where they helped to build a

school in Zimbabwe.

Mr Matthews said Toby had

loved the animals most of all.

“We saw an elephant riding

expert on the side of the road,

and I knew that was us. So he

rode an elephant for an hour,

and then he got to interact and

play with it. I think that was his

highlight,” he said.

He said the goal of the trip

was both to give Toby visual

experiences he could remember,

and to help other people.

As well as building classrooms

at the school, he said they built

shelves for the children’s books,

which had previously had to sit

on the ground, and brought a lot

of school supplies with them.

Because Toby’s condition,

Usher syndrome, is so rare, he

said the family did not know how

long Toby’s vision might last.

He was born deaf, but his vision

was slowly tunnelling, with

the area he could see growing

progressively smaller, and there

was no known way to reverse it.

He said the family planned to

head to Auckland next month

for thorough testing to see how

it was progressing.

Mr Matthews said Toby had

been struggling to come to

terms with things he could not

do, and the trip to Africa had

meant a lot to him.

“He was getting quite angry

and frustrated before he left, but

since he has come home he’s had

quite a different temperament. It

was a real morale boost,” he said.

And Toby has had more

dreams made possible since he

returned.

He said he wanted to see a tiger

on the trip, but that was very

unlikely as tigers are native to

Asia. But since he has returned,

the family has been donated a

12-month pass to Orana Wildlife

Park – meaning Toby will be

able to see tigers.

He said the family had also

been given a trip on the

TranzAlpine train, and firefighters

had offered Toby tours of

their fire stations.

Toby wanted to be a firefighter,

but his failing vision means

that is likely to be impossible.

Mr Matthews said the help

from the community had been

incredible.

“When I showed Toby how

many people had given, he was

blown away by how many

people cared about him,” he

said.

China Gives New Shine

to BRICS of Gold

On June 19, 2017, Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the

five BRICS countries met in Beijing. And with just

100 days until the Ninth BRICS Summit in China in

September, the world is keen to know if the summit

can put a new shine on emerging markets amid a

sluggish global economic recovery and setbacks in

globalization.

Under the theme “BRICS: Stronger Partnership for

a Brighter Future”, the summit will gather leaders

from countries representing 40 percent of the world

population and 25 percent of global GDP.

Formation of “BRICS”

Coined by former Goldman Sachs economist Jim

O’Neill in 2001, the term “BRIC” refers to Brazil,

Russia, India and China, four emerging markets

with fast growth and great potential. In 2006, foreign

ministers from those countries met in New York,

formally starting the BRIC grouping. South Africa

joined the group in 2010, the acronym changing to

BRICS.

It is fair to say that China has always pinned high

hopes on BRICS for emerging markets with which

it finds natural common ground. While the English

acronym is catchy, the Chinese translation -- four

characters that bear the literal meaning “gold bricks

countries” -- conveys confidence in the future.

That sense of confidence is backed by concrete

growth. And it has truly been a “golden decade.”

And the inclusion of South Africa gave the group

more political weight when speaking up for the

emerging world on the international stage. With its

five major members hailing from different continents,

BRICS has a very significant voice for inclusive and

multi-polar development.

Joint Efforts to Tackle Challenges

The past decade was not without challenges for

the five nations. Economic slowdown, rising trade

protectionism and a volatile international security

situation were common problems facing the

whole world, but the BRICS countries have shown

remarkable resilience with its abundant resources,

vast markets, huge growth potential and enhanced

cooperation.

Economic cooperation has been a major theme of

BRICS development. To help finance infrastructure

and sustainable development projects in BRICS and

other emerging economies and developing countries,

China co-founded the BRICS New Development

Bank (NDB) in 2014 with its headquarters in

Shanghai.

Fully operational in 2016, the bank approved loans

involving financial assistance of over 1.5 billion U.S.

dollars for projects in green and renewable energy,

and transport that year. The newly established

institutions will increasingly serve as a bridge

between developing and developed countries,

becoming instrumental in pushing global economic

growth, and more importantly furthering South-

South cooperation at various levels. As an important

manifestation of multiplicity and multilateralism in

the age of global interdependence, the BRICS and

its New Development Bank represent the aspirations

of the largest developing economies to have their

due seats at the table of international systems of

governance.

All parties agreed that the BRICS countries should

push forward the unity and cooperation between

emerging market economies, safeguard and

enhance the overall interests and welfares of the

vast developing countries, continuously commit to

maintaining international fairness and justice and

promoting world peace and stability, maintain the

UN’s core role in international affairs, advance the

political settlement of hotspot issues, jointly cope

with global challenges, and make efforts to establish a

new type of international relations featuring win-win

cooperation.

While meeting with the five Foreign Ministers,

Chinese President Xi Jinping stressed that BRICS

members have grasped the development as mainline,

which not only benefits the people in the five countries

but also offers a recipe for the world to address food

and security problems. All heads of delegations

expressed gratitude to China for the great efforts in

promoting BRICS cooperation as the BRICS rotating

presidency.

Expansion for Broader Cooperation

Building on the success of the past ten years, the

BRICS now eyes starting a new decade with a more

expansive partnership to seek inclusive growth.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that China

would explore a BRICS expansion, known as “BRICS

Plus”, and build a wider partnership with other major

developing countries and organizations, so as to turn

BRICS into the most-influential platform for South-

South cooperation in the world.

Meanwhile, China does not only aim for development

within BRICS, but for all nations, with its Belt and

Road Initiative. The initiative seeks to link the

developing countries with the developed ones, the

East and the West, so it can become one of the key

chains in terms of megaprojects linking the North,

South, West and East. In line with progress on the

Belt and Road Initiative, BRICS countries have much

potential for cooperation in infrastructure, trade and

investment, and financial markets.

Economic growth marks one of the key merits of

the group. Originating at the height of the global

financial crisis, the group has managed to exceed

even the bullish expectations of O’Neill. Together, the

five countries have contributed to more than half of

global growth in the past ten years, and their share

in global GDP increased from about 12 percent to

23 percent. According to the International Monetary

Fund, the BRICS and other developing countries were

responsible for 80 percent of global growth in 2016.

Consolidated Consensus among BRICS Members

During the Foreign Ministers meeting on June 19, they

reviewed the outcomes and experience gained from

the cooperation in the past decade, and conducted

in-depth discussion on the further development of

BRICS cooperation, current international situation

and hotspot issues.

This advertorial page is supported by The Chinese Consulate

So far, the Belt and Road Initiative has received a

warm welcome from BRICS countries. With such

inclusive platforms as the Belt and Road and NDB,

China will no doubt help add glitter to the BRICS

of gold. With growing global uncertainties, the next

decade might not be a smooth journey but the BRICS

countries will sail through and even enlighten the rest

of the world as long as they can stick to a strong and

expansive partnership.

Making medication process safer

Vests a way to avoid interruptions

and prevent mistakes at hospital

• By Gabrielle Stuart

FOR MOST people, distractions

and interruptions while they’re

working are inevitable – but for

nurses handling medications, being

distracted at the wrong time could

prove deadly for their patients.

Canterbury District Health

Board staff are holding a series of

workshops and studies looking at

hospital medication processes, and

things that cause problems or lead

to mistakes.

They plan to use what they learn

in the rebuild and redesign of

hospital buildings in Christchurch,

in an effort to make them safer and

run more effectively.

CDHB projects nurse coordinator

Yvonne Williams said

distractions and interruptions were

one of the biggest problems nurses

had pointed out in the workshops

last month.

An Australian study found

nurses preparing or administering

medication were about 12 per cent

more likely to make a mistake

if they were interrupted during

the process – and after multiple

interruptions, the risk of making a

major error doubled.

“Our nurses doing medications

get interrupted a lot, and we know

every interruption can lead to an

error,” Ms Willams said.

“So we’re looking at ways we can

work with staff to make things better

for them and safer, and reduce

the number of errors that occur,”

she said.

She said some of the suggestions

being looked at were simple, like

“do not disturb” vests that nurses

could wear while working with

medicines, or making sure all

equipment needed was stored in

the same place.

Others involved the design of the

new wards, around where medication

rooms were placed and how

they were laid out.

The new electronic systems

being rolled out throughout the

hospital could help in some ways

– like sending alarms and alerts

when things were missed – but it

threw up its own challenges, she

said.

Ms Williams said workshops

were held last month with about 30

staff from the child health department,

and staff from other areas

would be involved progressively

over the next several months.

Dead birds

a mystery

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

MYSTERY surrounds

hundreds of birds found dead

in a Leeston cemetery.

But authorities will not be

investigating what caused the

birds to die.

Resident Myles White was out

walking his dog when he found

rings of dead european greenfinches

around the trees at the

Ellesmere Public Cemetery.

They were in the process of

dying, squeaking and stuff. It

was bloody gross,” he said.

Environment Canterbury, the

district council, the Department

of Conservation, Forest

and Bird and Green Party MP

Eugenie Sage were contacted by

Mr White.

But because the birds are

an unprotected species, the

incident has been deemed a

forgotten case.

The district council referred

the matter to DOC.

A DOC spokeswoman said

it was not appropriate for it to

investigate because it did not

involve public conservation

land or protected species.

Mr White suspected the birds

had died from poison to protect

crops in the area.

Helping the vulnerable get on the

The Star has launched a

series on the work police

in Canterbury are doing

on crime prevention. It

will run weekly covering

a wide range of topics as

police head off trouble

before it starts. Bridget

Rutherford reports on

road policing

SENIOR Constables Aniwa

MacKenzie and Robyn

Pewhairangi know all too well

the effects of a crash.

Both have been involved in

serious crashes while off duty

– one caused by a drink driver,

and the other by a woman who

should not have been driving

unsupervised.

That’s why making the region’s

roads safer is so important to

them.

They, along with Senior Constable

Stephanie De Vere, run

programmes to help get people

the appropriate licences, under

the guidance of Senior Sergeant

Kelly Larsen.

On September 8, 2007, Senior

Constable MacKenzie was driving

home from the movies with

her husband Dayle.

ROAD WARRIORS: Senior Constables Stephanie De Vere (left), Robyn Pewhairangi and Aniwa

MacKenzie run programmes to help vulnerable people get their driver licence.

They were heading home to

watch the Rugby World Cup

match between the All Blacks

and Italy, when a young drunk

driver ran a stop sign and

ploughed into the passenger side

of the vehicle, where she was

sitting.

Coincidentally, it was outside

sister’s home. She regained consciousness

to her sister’s voice,

who had heard the commotion

and ran outside.

She said the young man tried

to walk away. He was later disqualified

from driving, put on

home detention and had to pay

reparation costs.

She realised that kind of thing

happened on a daily basis.

The consequences after that,

which I’ve been a victim of, can

be catastrophic depending on the

severity of the accident.”

A decade later, she is the police

project lead for the Limited Service

Volunteers programme at

Burnham Military Camp, which

helps vulnerable and unemployed

youths get their learner

licence.

The free six-week programme,

run by the New Zealand Defence

Force on behalf of Work and

Income, aims to boost their confidence

and help people improve

their job prospects.

“A lot of these kids have slipped

through the cracks,” she said.

They’re there because life

has been a bit tough for them.

We’re just trying to make it a bit

easier.”

One participant who finished

the last course said having a

licence would boost his job prospects.

He said he had been trying

to get it for three years, but could

not afford to do it.

straight and narrow with a licence

Senior Constable MacKenzie

said a lot of them say they would

rather get pulled over without a

licence, than sit the test and risk

failing.

They get caught, then they get

disqualified, and they caught,

and they get disqualified again

and it just snowballs,” Senior

Constable Pewhairangi said.

She has only just passed her

physical competency test allowing

her to go back to front line

work after having her spine fused

last year.

Part of the cause was a

motorcycle crash she had while

riding to work along Manchester

St in 2011. A woman driving in

the opposite direction didn’t see

her and turned in front of her

into Gloucester St, causing the

crash.

The driver was on her restricted

licence, with the proviso she was

supervised while driving.

She wasn’t.

Senior Constable Pewhairangi

said police were thinking differently

– they were providing the

ambulance at the top of the cliff,

rather than at the bottom.

“She could have killed herself.

It could have had worse consequences.

If we can stop that

happening I think that’s what we

need to focus on.”

She is about to start a five-week

programme to help people gain

their learner licence.

Next week, the first of three

courses will start, which sees

mentors help participants learn

the road rules, and prepare them

for their test.

It is similar to the Community

Driver Mentor Programme, a

collaboration between New Zealand

Transport Agency, AA, Salvation

Army and police, helping

people aged 16-24 progress from

their learner licence through to

their restricted.

Senior Constable Pewhairangi

said helping people gain their

licence meant they could get

employment, stopping them from

going on the benefit.

That could have spin-offs in

other areas, such as domestic

violence, she said.

Youth drivers were a particular

focus for police.

Police data shows between

2012-2016, of the young drivers

who caused accidents in Canterbury,

81 did not have a licence.

Speed and alcohol were both

“over represented” as contributing

factors.

A lot of those happened between

midnight and 3am.

There were 255 crashes caused

by drivers on their learners –

speed and alcohol often a factor

– and 491 on their restricted.

Thirty-seven crashes were

caused by disqualified drivers.

In more than half, alcohol was a

contributing factor.

Another programme Senior

Constable Pewhairangi runs is

the driving while forbidden compliance

scheme.

If someone without a licence –

say theirs has expired – is pulled

over, police give them 28 days to

become compliant. Of those, 42

per cent actually do.

Nearly 1000 forbidden drivers are

caught in Canterbury each year.

Both Senior Constable Mac-

Kenzie and Senior Constable

Pewhairangi said they joined the

police because they wanted to

help people.

And in spite of what many

people thought, they didn’t enjoy

giving out tickets.

“I stopped one last week, no

registration, no warrant, learner

driver, carrying unauthorised

passengers, the car seat in the

back I didn’t even want to look

at with the wee baby, no L plates,

no driver’s licence. There’s seven.

Where do you start? Where do

you stop?” Senior Constable Mac-

Kenzie said.

She issued the woman with two

tickets and walked away “feeling

rubbish.”

But she knew it had to be done.

Housing plan upsets iwi

• By Julia Evans

A HOUSING development

proposal set for the rim of the

Cranford basin does not provide

for the cultural well-being of iwi,

says Ngai Tahu.

The iwi’s Ngai Tūāhuriri is

unhappy with stormwater from

the development being diverted

into Horseshoe Lake, which is

4km away.

The significance of the site

comes from pre-European times

when Waikākāriki/Horseshoe

Lake was the site of a significant

Maori settlement called Te

Oranga.

The development is a city

council plan to regenerate about

50ha of former farmland in

Papanui between Winters and

McFaddens Rds.

Up to 420 homes would

be built on the rim of the

development, with the rest of the

basin used for wetlands, cycle

and walkways.

In a bid to stop the likelihood

of flooding in the area, the

plan includes significant flood

prevention methods.

In its submission to the city

council, Ngai Tūāhuriri said the

plan does not provide for the

cultural well-being of the iwi and

its relationship with Horseshoe

Lake.

But there are currently no

other practical options for

the disposal of the water,

city council staff said.

“However, there have been

preliminary investigations into

whether an alternative outfall

can be found as part of the

regeneration plan for the Avon

River Corridor,” staff said.

City council head of planning

and strategic transport Richard

Osborne said the city council

understands the cultural

significance of Horseshoe Lake

to Ngai Tūāhuriri.

“It is committed to working

closely with the runanga to

try and find an acceptable

alternative solution. Decisions

on potential solutions need to be

considered as part of wider

work streams,” Mr Osborne

said.

Ngai Tūāhuriri could not be

contacted by The Star.

The city council opened the

regeneration plan for public

feedback in May. More than 120

responses were submitted, with

64 in general support, 45 against

and 11 neutral.

The draft plan will be put

back to the city council so it

can decide whether to submit to

Regenerate Christchurch.

From there, Regenerate

Christchurch will make a

recommendation to Minister

Regeneration Nicky Wagner to

sign off the plan.

Relief in sight for

controversial

intersection

• By Caitlin Miles

TRAFFIC LIGHTS at the

controversial St Andrews Hill

intersection, in Ferrymead, will

be reprogrammed to try and

ease confusion for motorists.

The left arrow light at the

Main Rd traffic lights will be

reprogrammed to allow for vehicles

wanting to turn right off

St Andrews Hill Rd onto Bridle

Path Rd a better chance to get

across a lane.

Heathcote Ward city councillor

Sara Templeton said: “This

will allow St Andrews Hill to

clear without worrying about

unseen traffic coming around

the corner.”

Lights on Main and Bridle

Path Rds will communicate and

allow traffic to flow better.

Residents in the area have

complained about the layout

and design of the intersection

suggesting that it would not

work even before it was built.

Three options were presented

for public consultation last year –

640 submissions were received.

Option one proposed to leave

the intersection as is, option two

would see new traffic signals on

St Andrews Hill Rd and new

pre-signals on Bridle Path Rd

and option three is to ban right

turns from Bridle Path Rd onto

Main Rd.

None of these options

were given the green light by

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

They have decided to change

the light phasing which will be

trialled for three months.

The Canterbury Bride of The

Year gives brides, bridesmaids

and flower girls the opportunity

to wear their gowns again, win

gorgeous prizes and support a

national charity helping to fight

bowel and liver disease.

Newly-engaged couples and

audience members will have

girl of the year.

Entertained by pianist and

singer Mandy Pickering, guests

will receive a goody bag, and

the opportunity to win fantastic

spot prizes and giveaways.

And it’s all in support of a

worthy cause, as the event will

raise funds for the New Zealand

Bowel and Liver Trust, working

to beat gut ailments which can

cause diseases like Crohn’s disease,

bowel disorder and cancer.

New Zealand has one of the

highest rates of bowel cancer in

the world and it is the second

highest cause of death affecting

New Zealanders.

The Canterbury Bride of The

Saturday, July 15.

Vehicle for free

things to do in city

A REPURPOSED parking

meter in the middle of Cathedral

Square has started issuing tickets

of a very different kind.

Said Gap Filler Co-Founder

Coralie Winn: “The Open City

parking meter delivers you

your own Christchurch secret

to explore. It might be a good

climbing tree in the Botanic

Gardens, an interesting courtyard

within a new building, or a great

place to feed the ducks.”

“THese little secrets and more

have been suggested by locals as

well as visitors. Each adventure

helps you get to know your city

better through someone else’s

eyes.”

She said Open City is all about

celebrating the undervalued,

sweet, free things to do in

Christchurch.

Open City is a collaboration

between Gap Filler and the All

Right? campaign.

Sue Turner, All Right? manager,

said Open City will help Cantabrians

reconnect with their city.

Ms Turner said each activity

aligns with one of the Five

Ways to Wellbeing – connect,

take notice, give, be active and

keep learning. These actions are

scientifically-proven to improve

A key part of the Open City

project is encouraging Christchurch

people to contribute their

own ideas of sweet, free things

they love about Christchurch.

The Open City website allows

anyone to upload their favourite

sweet, free things to do. If it’s an

activity within the four avenues

it could be issued by the parking

meter,” says Ms Turner.

“We really want to encourage

people to add their Christchurch

secret gems to the website. The

key thing is they must be free.”

Ms Turner is expecting the

Open City parking meter to be

very popular with families during

the school holidays.

“It’s a great, free family activity

for the holidays. There are already

50 great secrets to explore, none

of them cost a cent, and they all

help you get your family outside

and out of the house.”

Ms Winn said Gap Filler

projects are no longer just about

vacant sites and empty buildings.

They’re about bringing new

ideas and creative projects to life

in the city to keep it fun, interesting

and accessible.”

Steve Muir

SMOOTH: ICEcycles co-founder

Steve Muir shows off one of

his many inventions: His latest

cycle-powered blender.

Inventor’s pursuit

ICEcycles volunteers have given away more than 1100 bikes and repaired hundreds

more. Steve Muir, one of its founders, spoke to Gabrielle Stuart about his bicycle

inventions, the cycling church and the car park v cycleway debate

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

So tell me how ICEcycles

works?

We started in 2009 and the

aim is to help people to access

bikes. Often they’ll need a

repair but have been to a bike

shop and couldn’t afford the

price quoted to fix it, but we’ll

do it for free or for a donation,

whatever they can afford. We

hold about five workshops a

year helping to fix people’s

bikes, and a couple of meetings

a month, where we restore

donated bikes to give away. We

have a good group of about 60

or 70 volunteers, and a really

good sense of community. It’s

really fun to be involved with,

because people are so appreciative.

After eight years, are you

starting to run out of people

needing bikes?

No – it’s the opposite.

Demand has gone up exponentially,

so we’ve had to restrict

the area we work in to just the

east of the city, otherwise we

would have had an 18-month

waiting list for bikes – we try

to keep it to a month at the

most.

Who do the bikes go to?

All sorts. We do a lot of kids

bikes, lots of them donated

through the community trusts

and schools around Phillipstown

and Aranui. But we

have the most demand for

large men’s bikes, because lots

of men want bikes but not a lot

are donated. At the workshops,

it’s a real variety, too. We get a

lot of people on low incomes,

but we also get people on high

wages who just don’t know

how to fix their bikes or don’t

have the tools for it.

You must have bikes of all

shapes and sizes donated – is

it difficult to find the right

person for a bike?

Not usually, but we do get

the odd one. One which was

quite weird was a unicycle with

a sort of skateboard outrigger.

We sold that on Trade Me, in

the end. But we’re trying to

help as many people as possible

get on bikes, so we always

try to help. We’ve had a lot of

people who want to ride but

have balancing problems on

a standard bike. You can buy

adult tricycles, but most of

them are more than $1000,

and a lot of people can’t afford

that. So I’ve invented an adult

tricycle prototype for them.

I saw you’ve invested all

kinds of things in the past,

too – like snow chains for

bicycles?

Yes. That was a few years

ago, and the weather’s been

so warm lately, I haven’t had

much opportunity to use

them. My bike trailers are my

most popular creation, but

one of my more recent was a

bike with a blender jug, which

makes a nice fruit smoothie as

you cycle.

That’s amazing – so you

can cycle to work and have a

smoothie ready once you get

there?

Well, the latest is more of a

stationary one.

to bring bicycles to the people

This is my third now. The first

one you could bike down the

road on, which was fun, but the

problem was the blender was

fixed in place, so you had to tip

the whole bike upside-down to

pour your smoothie out. Then

I built one with the blender on

the back, but then you couldn’t

see when your smoothie was

ready. This one has a removable

blender on the front.

And you create these around

your day job at Christchurch

Hospital. Your job title is

medical physicist – what does

that actually mean?

I do a lot of work with x-ray

machines, and 3D imaging and

3D printing. It’s a lot of technical

problem-solving and work on

development of new products,

finding new solutions to medical

problems. Things like 3D

printing can making treatment

better and more successful

and also save money so it’s easier

for people on low incomes to

access.

Where did your inventing

start – were you constantly

pulling things

apart as a child?

Definitely. A few clocks and a

lot of old electronics. It’s often

the best way to learn, though.

If we have a new volunteer at

ICEcycles, we’ll often get them

stripping the bikes apart first,

so they learn to use the tools

and get familiar with all the

components.

Do you

remember

your first

bike?

Definitely. It was a little blue

single speed. I remember riding

to kindy on my bike by myself

in Gore, where I grew up. I loved

the sense of freedom. It was so

good to be able to go where I

wanted, whenever I wanted.

You were at a fairly

fiery city council

meeting last week,

where a lot of

business owners

argued against the new

cycleways. They are worried

about the loss of car parking –

what are your thoughts on the

debate?

The roadways are definitely

the biggest thing I hear is

holding people back from

cycling because people don’t feel

safe enough to battle with cars.

So, I think the impact separated

cycleways will have on getting

people cycling is huge and

worthwhile. Christchurch used

to have more people cycling

than Copenhagen and

Amsterdam, but while they built

cycleways in the 70s, we built

roadways.

You’ve started a cycling

church. Could you tell me

about that?

It started years ago, when

I was discussing with a few

friends from Ilam Baptist

Church why we sit in church in

a darkened room, pulling the

curtains even on a beautiful

day, when we often feel more

spiritually alive biking around

in nature. So I suppose it was

a mindfulness exercise – when

you’re in a beautiful place you

should be appreciating it, but it

was also very tongue-in-cheek.

At one point, it was about 20

people, but I tend to just do

small rides with a few friends

now.

A way forward for Cathedral

CHRIST CHURCH Cathedral

sits at the very heart of

Christchurch – it’s the city’s

namesake, an icon, a place of

worship, a community facility, a

tourist attraction and a beloved

heritage building.

But, for more than six years,

New Zealand’s most well-known

church has sat in ruins – a sad

and constant reminder of all that

we’ve been through.

It’s a divisive issue and everyone

has an opinion but, one way

or another, a decision must be

made.

That’s why this week I presented

a Government offer of

reinstatement to Bishop Victoria

Matthews.

The offer includes a Crown

cash contribution of $10 million

and an interest free suspensory

loan of $15 million, as well as

$10 million from the city council

and $13.7 million from the Great

Christchurch Buildings Trust.

It also includes an independent

fundraising trust, legislation

to streamline the process and a

joint venture to govern and manage

the project.

The church would remain, by

far, the biggest contributor with

its insurance payment of $42

million.

Together, we have more than

Nicky Wagner

$90 million — enough to complete

the Cathedral and ancillary

buildings.

The offer is not about favouring

reinstatement over restoration or

a contemporary new-build. It’s

about finding a way forward that

doesn’t leave everyone tied up in

court for five to 10 years.

The Bishop and the Synod now

have a clear and detailed option

for consideration, with added security

and certainty, particularly

around funding.

In putting forward this offer,

the Government, city council

and heritage groups are attempting

to break the current stalemate

by balancing the property

rights of the Church with the

historical value of the building

and its economic potential.

This issue effects everyone in

Christchurch.

By reinstating

the Cathedral we

can finally unlock

the city centre and

once again have a

bustling and vibrant

core that attracts

tourists, appeals

to developers and

makes Cantabrians

— and New Zealanders

— proud.

Last week The Star

reported frontline police

in Canterbury would have

more weaponry to deal

with dangerous incidents

Brian Godfrey – As I

understand it, many police officers

have rapid access already

to firearms be in their vehicles

or stations. We don’t see these

officers wearing those firearms

unless the incident or event they

are attending requires them to

do so. The decision to access and

wear arms is made based on the

officers first hand information or

direction from a more senior officer/NCO

in a control position.

The officers with rapid access

are also trained and required

to confirm their understanding

of the rules around the use of

those firearms every time they

access them. I would hate to see

New Zealand move to armed

police as a matter of routine

like so many other countries

do, France, United States, as

a couple of examples. We do

have gun issues here for sure

and arming or not of the police

isn’t going to change that, it

may deter some one from using

a firearm improperly but most

of those who do so now will

continue to do so regardless of

the police being armed or not.

This is not a simple problem and

I don’t know the answer. The US

demonstrates how gun control

doesn’t work.

the lives of the police are threatened

need to feel safe and protected on

the streets. Being a former

partner of an officer who has been

assaulted and knowing of others

who have been assaulted on

the job it is just another way for

partners knowing they’re going to

be safe in a very dangerous situation

at last resort. A gun is only

ever used as a last resort when all

other options haven’t worked. I

know that if a stranger was walking

around shooting everywhere,

All Sewing Needs

Students want to bring change

LAST WEEK my hopes for the

future were boosted by two very

special events in Christchurch.

One was the remarkable

launch of the 2017 Youth

Custody Index by students at St

Thomas of Canterbury College

and other was attending the

community awards for people

in the Riccarton, Hornby and

Halswell areas.

Here I saw people who were

committed to making our

neighbourhoods, their city

and their country a better

place. This is something that

we should take time out to

celebrate.

THis year was the fourth that

students from St Thomas have

released their index which uses

the Official Information Act to

compile a snapshot of how well

the justice system is dealing

with young people.

THe impressive young men

who worked on the project

are confronting head-on the

important issue of how our

young people in custody are to

have a voice.

Impressively, they also

managed to bring together

Making city 21-century resilient still some way off

YOU PROBABLY saw the announcement

of SCIRT coming to an end.

THis generated howls of protest –

because of course there’s still a lot of work

to be done.

If, like me before I became the mayor,

you thought the Government had agreed

to contribute to fixing every bit of what we

call the horizontal infrastructure (roads

and pipes) damaged by the earthquakes,

you may well be disappointed by that. But

that’s what has happened.

to get everything done at once, but the

model didn’t allow for that

The truth is that the end of the SCIRT

contracting alliance does not mean everything

is now ‘as good as new’ – far from it.

Although the new pipes that have

been laid are now made of much better

materials capable of withstanding future

earthquakes, there is still more to be done,

so the promise of a 21st-century resilient

city is still some way off.

The good news about SCIRT is that we

now have really great information about

the state of our infrastructure. For example,

we now have CCTV surveys of approximately

43 per cent of our wastewater

network. Having data like this provides

the tools to develop the best asset management

system in the country.

The SCIRT alliance pays for any defects

we find in the next 12 months, but funding

now reverts to the usual local government

arrangements. This means NZTA

funds half the costs of approved roading

projects. But for the pipes and pump stations,

we are back to funding these on our

own.

We have set up a Three Waters Capital

Programme Directorate to better manage

the city’s water, stormwater and wastewater

systems. And we are developing an

integrated asset management system.

SCIRT may have finished and there may

still be more to do. But with improved

data, delivery, and your ideas feeding into

the Long Term Plan, we can deliver that

21st-century resilient city we were promised

– it’s just going to take more time.

Let’s get real and use money for treating

GARDENING

ADVICE with

We have three fl owering cherry trees

QUESTION in our section. They appear to be

sending out roots which are coming

up in other parts of the garden. What is the best way to stop

this happening? I cut them back as soon they appear but

the little devils grow so fast. Will they cause any

damage to our new drive? And does cutting them back

have any effect on the trees?

Today’s winning question

came from Patrick Duggan.

Congratulations!

It is quite common

ANSWER for some cherry trees

(depending on the root

stock they are grafted on), to have suckers or

vegetative growth emerging from near ground level

and sometimes from the roots of the cherry tree.

This growth should be cut back when it becomes

apparent, otherwise it will grow quite quickly and consume

energy that would otherwise be available to the fl owering

cherry.

In some instances, this suckering growth only occurs when trees are quite juvenile, and other times it may

continue for a number of years.

There is no danger to the cherry tree in cutting this growth back, in fact quite the opposite. Do not be concerned

for your driveway; while the growth you outline is a nuisance, as long as it’s controlled quite quickly and regularly,

there should be little or no chance of actual physical damage to surrounding pathways or driveways.

Products to try: Daltons Compost, Daltons Mulch & Grow, Daltons Premium Tree & Shrub Fertiliser.

For more gardening advice, read our How to Grow Guides at www.daltons.co.nz/how-to-guides

Nothing tastes better than home grown, juicy fruit. Adding fruit trees to

your garden offers you everything an ornamental tree does, but with

the added bonus of fruit crops. You don’t need to start a large orchard;

it’s easy to incorporate a few fruit trees into your garden planting or

even grow them in pots.

We have a Daltons Premium Fruit Tree Care

pack to give away which includes everything

you need to plant and care for fruit trees.

Valued at over $70, it contains:

• 2 x Garden Time Planting Mix

More than one way to grow strawberries

EDIBLE GARDENS have never

been more popular and one of the

easiest of fruits to cultivate is the

strawberry.

Because of their compact habit,

strawberries can be grown in hanging

baskets, containers or the aptlynamed

strawberry pots, as well as

the usual raised-up garden beds.

They can begin cropping in a

matter of weeks and will go on

producing for much of the year,

especially in warmer areas.

•Strawberries in the garden –

Choose a sunny position

that hasn’t grown strawberries

for a number of years and dig in

some organic compost.

Plant strawberry runners or

seedlings into raised-up mounds,

and apply a layer of mulch. It

important it is to mulch the plants,

both to retain moisture and to

keep the fruit cleanly above the

soil. Pea straw or lucerne hay

make a good a mulch.

Remove runners, unless you

want to use them to propagate

some new plants (which should be

done every three years or so).

•Strawberries in pots – Start by

choosing a suitable container. Fill

with a top quality potting

mix and plant the strawberries.

Water in well.

Feed occasionally with plant

food and watch out for snails and

slugs.

•Strawberries in hanging

baskets – This is a fun way to

grow strawberries, but the main

challenge with growing any plant

in a hanging basket is that it’s

much more vulnerable to drying

out. Line moss baskets with plastic

sheet and poke holes for drainage.

Fill with a hanging basket mix

which contains added soil wetters

and water-storing crystals. Ripe

berries look particularly decorative

dangling from a basket (right).

Opera singer on path to greatness

.kiwi

Thursday July 6 2017

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

AN EMERGING opera singer

is one step closer to achieving

her ultimate dream of one day

performing at the Metropolitan

Opera House in New York City.

From the moment Elisabeth

Harris, 30, scored a free ticket to

see Giacomo Puccini’s Madama

Butterfly in her early teens, she

knew the dramatic life of opera

was for her.

“Opera is ridiculous. The

things that happen in three

hours, it is just over the top, but

I love that, I can’t get enough,”

she said.

Nearly 20 years later, the

mezzo soprano, who grew up in

Opawa, will travel to the United

States in September to train

under former leading New York

City Opera company singer Ruth

Golden at the Manhattan School

of Music.

Harris is currently based in

Wellington where she runs her

own music teaching business.

She will hold a special farewell

concert in Christchurch on

August 20, featuring some of her

favourite opera pieces, including

music from Carmen and

composers Benjamin Britten and

Wolfgang Mozart.

The show will feature performances

from singer Ingrid

Fomison-Nurse, pianist Anna

Maksymova, 13-year-old violinist

Justin Hodges and soprano

singer Jayden Walker.

UPCOMING: Elisabeth Harris at the New Zealand Aria competition in Rotorua with the Auckland

Philharmonia Orchestra.

With a love of fashion and

picking up quirky pieces online

and at op-shops, Harris does not

look like your typical traditional

opera singer.

There are so many opera singers

trying to make it, you have

got to have a point of difference,

and if I am remembered as the

girl with the crazy hair, so be it,”

she said.

Harris’ endeavour to complete

her Masters of Music overseas

has been nearly two years in the

making after she deferred her

acceptance to the Manhattan

School of Music to raise further

funds and be with her terminally

ill father.

Her father Geoff was diagnosed

with early-onset Alzheimer’s

disease and died just before

his 55th birthday in December.

“I am sure he would be happy

I am following my dreams . . . it

was a bit of a problem for him

initially having a daughter on the

stage but he got his head around

it,” she said.

While Harris said she inherited

her father’s sense of humour,

he was quite shy and didn’t like

to be the centre of attention,

which made for an interesting

combination when his daughter

first wanted to be on the stage.

But she has fond memories of

the last recital she performed for

her father at The Piano last year.

“He still remembered me and

was so happy for me and what I

was doing – it was really exciting,”

she said.

She said it would be fabulous

to be up on stage at the Metropolitan

Opera House, and

her main goals are to become a

professional opera singer, keep

teaching and possibly start her

own young artist programme.

•Mezzo to Manhattan

will be held from 2pm on

Sunday, August 20, at Knox

Church.

Door sales cost $30.

To book, phone Lynne

Havenaar on 960 4090 or

email info@operafoundation.

Ali Harper delights audience with her Songs For Nobodies

Songs For Nobodies by

Joanna Murray-Smith,

directed by Ross Gumbley,

The Court Theatre.

Reviewed by Barry

Southam

IT TAKES a class performer

to stand alone on a stage for

an hour and a half and keep an

audience captivated.

Ali Harper does just that with

Songs For Nobodies.

Her rendition of Edith Piaf,

the little sparrow, was top

drawer. Although Piaf’s rough

edge was not quite there, it was

still a very recognisable version

of her famous forebear.

Again, a full-throated Come

Rain Or Shine brought back

memories of that gutsy singer

Judy Garland, who could always

belt out a number.

Billie Holiday’s Strange Fruit,

was a good contrast to Ain’t

Nobody’s Business If I Do and

Patsy Kline’s performance

at the Soldiers and Sailors

Memorial Hall in 1962 was

well reproduced, providing the

largest selection of the night,

including the classic Stand By

Your Man.

To complete the quintet

of famous singers, there was

the challenging Vissi d’arte

from Puccini’s Tosca by Maria

Callas on board the Christina

somewhere in the Mediterranean

on August 3, 1957. It was given

the full volume treatment, no

easy task.

The range of styles is

formidable but Harper

handled the transitions with

apparent ease, seeming just as

comfortable with jazz as

with opera or country and

western.

Musical director Richard

Marrett should be well

pleased with the results of

their collaboration, as should

writer, Australian Joanna

Murray-Smith, who only gave

permission for the rights for the

play to be performed in New

Zealand if Harper undertook the

demanding role.

BUSY: The crowds of Shibuya are a warm-up to the throbbing entertainment mecca of Shinjuku (centre). Try the Robot Restaurant.

Explore Tokyo’s entertainment mecca

• By Mike Yardley

LIKE MUCH of Tokyo, the

once war-torn moonscape of

Shibuya is a glitzy, buzzing

district of skyscrapers, shops and

entertainment.

Outside the railway station, I

ventured to Shibuya Crossing,

nicknamed The Scramble, which

lays claim to being the world’s

busiest pedestrian crossing.

I’ll take their word for it.

Beneath the dancing blaze of

giant video screens, watching the

sea of humanity cross the street,

from all quarters, is a stunningly

engrossing spectacle, like massmovement

ballet.

By the time the next light phase

rolls round, each street corner has

been fully reloaded with a fresh

stock of humanity, like a seamless

video loop. Braving the crowds

of Shibuya is a warm-up for the

throbbing, pulsating entertainment

mecca of Shinjuku.

Over 3 million people pass

through the world’s busiest train

station each day, and Shinjuku’s

entertainment excesses sprawl

to the east, in a head-spinning

spangle of neon-drenched lighting

and LED screens. Strip-clubs,

pachinko parlours, jazz bars, love

hotels, fetish bars and cabarets all

jostle for attention in notorious

Kabukicho, Tokyo’s notorious

red-light district.

Don’t flash your wallet too

openly in these parts – and males

on their own can expect plenty of

attention from big-talking touts.

Adjoining Kabukicho are the

evocative alleyways of Golden

Gai, a throwback to Tokyo’s earlier

days, home to a time-warped

tumble of tiny drinking dens,

many who hook punters in with

trademark gimmicks, whether

it’s a signature drink, off-the-wall

décor or outlandish staff costumes,

like troll toys or hospital uniforms.

Champion and Albatross are

two of the tourist favourites, but

aside from these larger bars, gawp

up a few staircases to see what

takes your fancy. Shinjuku is also

home to the mesmerising and

glittery escapism of the Robot

Restaurant.

BEAUTY: Andaz Tokyo is a lifestyle hotel revolution. The bathrooms are a wooden haven while the guestrooms exude purity of form.

VEHICLES

FOR

SALE

Capable Subaru

for on or off-road

• By Ross Kiddie

I’M OFTEN asked if I

would like to take a long

road trip to form a media

vehicle evaluation.

That was the case when

I eagerly accepted an

opportunity to drive the

new Subaru Impreza XV

back to Auckland after last

week’s media launch in

Napier.

I’m so pleased I did, for

it was a fabulous drive and

one which really proved

how capable the XV is on

the highway. I can also

report it is a competent

vehicle off the seal - the

launch provided the opportunity

to tackle some

shingle roads - and on the

long haul back to Auckland

I stopped at a friend’s home

south of Hamilton who has

a driveway that is steep and

muddy, the XV was in its

element with 220mm of

ground clearance and fourwheel-drive.

The new XV was a long

time coming, it’s roughly

been a five-year life cycle

and that’s about as long

as you would expect a

manufacturer to produce a

variant in today’s market.

Nevertheless, the newcomer

was worth the wait,

it arrives here in two levels

– Sport and Premium

– both are keenly priced

at $34,990 and $39,990

respectively, which by my

reckoning are the bargains

of the mid-size crossover/

sport utility vehicle market.

The XV is a compact

SUV, it’s not a big car but

there is adequate room for

five, and given increased

underhatch proportions

there’s enough room to

pack the tent and camping

gear for the high-country

fishing trip.

The XV certainly hasn’t

lost any of its X-factor, it

is a stunning looker with

chunky, bold and almost

aggressive styling. It has an

in-your-face wheel design

which promotes a can-do

look, and it has a wilful

driving feel.

Under the bonnet sits

a 2-litre, horizontallyopposed,

four-cylinder

engine, both models drive

through a continuously

variable automatic transmission

with a seven-step,

paddle-shift function.

The XV’s engine is rated

with 115kW of power

(6000rpm) and 196Nm

of torque available at

4000rpm. The way the

engine works through CVT

SUBARU IMPREZA XV: Four-wheel-drive for all

conditions.

is uninhibited, and it is

dynamic in the respect that

it pulls happily no matter

what point the engine revolutions

are operating at.

Response to throttle

request is decisive. I kept at

a steady pace which meant

several highway overtakes,

and the power comes in

freely without strain nor

much sound in total.

• Price – Subaru

Impreza XV, $34,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4465mm;

width, 1800mm;

height, 1615mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1995cc, 115kW,

196Nm, continuously

variable automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.6.sec

• Fuel usage –

7l/100km

If you listen hard you

can detect the harmonics

which accompany the

boxer engine design, but it

is well isolated and far from

intrusive.

The engine is free-revving

and responsive, but

the beauty of the flat-four

engine is its ability to work

low down, and with the

inclusion of CVT it quickly

settles into a low revving

pattern.

Against the stopwatch

the XV will launch to

100km/h from a standstill

in 9.6sec and will make

120km/h from 80km/h in

5.8sec. These are satisfactory

figures which will give

peace of mind.

Subaru claims a sevenlitre

per 100km (40mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage

average, development work

on the boxer engine to

keep it fuel-friendly has

been ongoing and that

certainly showed during

my long highway haul.

At 100km/h it sips fuel at

the rate of just 5l/100km

(56mpg) with the engine

turning over slowly at just

1550rpm. My entire Napier

to Auckland average was

7.7l/100km (37mpg) which

I thought was most impressive.

Through lack of familiarity

and the threat of

ice, I didn’t push the XV

too hard into the tight

and twisty sections of the

Central Plateau, but I can

report that it steers with

precision and has accuracy

and balance which seems

quite unnatural for a vehicle

which is over 1.6m tall.

Even though it sits high,

the centre of gravity is still

low, that’s a by-product

of the flat-four engine,

the weight sits low in the

engine bay and that has a

beneficial affect against the

force of gravity.

Subaru has upspecced

the new generation model.

There’s a raft of new gear

including Eyesight – a

computer-guided safety

technology – Apple Car

Play and Android Auto

are fitted, along with the

clever X-mode drive system

which improves driver

control on rough roads,

steep terrain and slippery

surfaces through integrated

control of the engine. On

the downhill slope at my

friend’s home, hill descent

control kept the XV at slow,

steady speed.

All of these inclusions sit

over and above the normal

features you would expect

in today’s modern car and,

of course, the XV gets a

five-star Australasian New

Car Assessment Program

safety rating.

The new model will be

in showroom floors later

this month which is just

in time for the winter ski

season. I know it’s been a

popular car on the skifield

access roads since its inception,

and with Subaru sales

buoyant in the South Island

I can see its value and capability

tempting to a large

cross-section of buyers.

The Storm won’t confirm

their final side until game

• By Gordon Findlater

ONE OF the country’s most

experienced whistle-blowers

has celebrated 25 years in the

craft by officiating in his 1000th

game.

Marc Anderson, 55, began

refereeing football in 1992 after a

stint playing the game in the 80s

and early 90s.

“I played to an extremely

average level. I was one of those

players who thought he was a lot

better than he actually was and I

had the attitude to match that as

well,” said Anderson.

His decision to take up

refereeing came on the back of

multiple concussions in 1991,

the last of which caused him to

end up in hospital. Faced with

potentially not being able to play

the game, he took a refereeing

test, which he passed with flying

colours.

“My first game was at Lower

Linwood Fields in April, 1992.

I remember it vividly – it was

absolutely bucketing down and

it was an under-18 match,” said

Anderson.

“I was mentored in the early

stages by our late patron Ivan

Billcliff. If it wasn’t for him, I

probably wouldn’t have stayed in

the game as long as I have.”

From there, Anderson moved

to Ashburton and spent a

number of years refereeing in

Mid-Canterbury.

“I got into it pretty full-on

down there. It would be nothing

on a Saturday to do four to five

games. You’d start in the morning

with a 15th grade, then a

17th and a 19th, and you would

end up doing a senior game later

on,” he said.

“By the time Saturday evening

rolled around, you were pretty

OFFICIAL: Marc Anderson has become just the second

Mainland referee to officiate 1000 games.

knackered.”

Anderson’s most memorable

tournament also came during

his time in Mid-Canterbury

when Ashburton hosted the

1994 Japan Cup.

The tournament was a 12th

grade competition played over a

week. It featured two teams from

Japan and around 20 teams from

the South Island. Just a couple of

days before it was due to begin,

the fields were covered in 15cm

of snow.

“We had six fields which had

the snow graded off them and

pushed up along the side line, so

they looked like six little bowls.

I’ve never refereed in colder

conditions,” said Anderson.

His 1000th match came last

month in a Canterbury Championship

League game between

Selwyn UFC and Christchurch

United. He became just the second

Mainland Football referee

to bring up the milestone.

“I got a round of applause

from both teams, which was a

nice touch.”

Believe it or not, in his 25

years in charge of games Anderson

has only ever had hands laid

on him once.

“I’ve had plenty of people yell

and scream at me, but people

usually only do that once because

they generally get to warm

their car up or see if the showers

are working,” said Anderson.

Following this season, Anderson

plans on hanging up his

boots and spending more time

coaching and mentoring young

referees.

When asked what has changed

most over his 25-year career,

he had this to say: “It’s basically

the same, there’s just less hair

and more weight than when I

started,” Anderson joked.

“After 25 years, you become

a bit like a good No 8 in rugby.

He knows how to cover the

ground smartly and you get a

sense of where the ball is going

to be before it gets there,” said

Anderson.

“I just love everything about

the game – 99 per cent of the

time it’s been an absolute joy.”

Nel continues to dominate metro competition

• By Gordon Findlater

SOUTH AFRICAN Dylan

Nel continues to dominant the

MVP race in the metro club

competition.

The Sumner No 8 scored two

tries and set up another during

Sumner’s 28-9 win over High

School Old Boys at the weekend.

The 24-year-old now has 11 tries

for Sumner this season to lead all

scorers in the metro competition.

In the MVP medal standings, he

has 19 points this season, six more

than his nearest rival.

“He’s got an ability to break

tackles because he’s so big and

strong, but then he also has a lot of

speed for a big guy,” said Sumner

coach Martin Dodgson.

Nel made the move to Sumner

from South Africa to further develop

his game and is currently in

his third season with the club.

He led the team with 10 tries

last season – a feat he has already

eclipsed in 2017.

It’s no secret that Nel is highly

thought of by many in higher

ranks.

Earlier this year, he was rushed

to South Africa as injury cover for

the Crusaders when Kieran Read

broke his thumb.

Nel has also been given a

handful of opportunities for

Canterbury, including their recent

Ranfurly Shield defence over

Wanganui.

It’s expected he will play a big

role for the provincial side later

this year.

“Who knows where his ceiling

is. He is just so single-minded

in his desire to get better,” said

Dodgson.

DOMINANT: Sumner No 8 Dylan Nel has scored more tries than any other player in this

year’s club competition.

Crusaders v Highlanders ‘friendly’ before finals

THE CRUSADERS will play the

Highlanders for the third time

this season in a warm-up game in

Timaru today.

The game is in preparation for

the final round of Super Rugby’s

regular season next week,

followed by the start of the finals

series in which both teams are

guaranteed a spot.

The team will be captained by

No 8 Jordan Taufua, with fellow

loose-forward Heiden Bedwell-

Curtis and reserve halfback Bryn

Hall as his vice-captains.

The ‘friendly’ will be an

opportunity for a number of

players to return to play for the

Crusaders following injuries

earlier in the season, including

Tim Perry, who will start at

loose-head prop; Mitchell

Dunshea, who will start at lock;

and outside backs Jone Macilai

and Digby Ioane, who will come

off the bench.

Latest Christchurch news at www.

Five players from outside of the

Crusaders squad – Chris Gawler,

Jonno Osbourne, Shannon

Frizell, Braydon Ennor and

Vernon Fredericks – will also get

the chance to have a run off the

bench.

Coach Scott Robertson says

the game is a great chance for the

team to reconnect as they head

into the next phase of the Super

Rugby competition.

“After a month with no

fixtures, the team is fizzing

and ready to take the field on

Thursday,” said Robertson.

This game will be a great

opportunity for us to find our

rhythm again and test our match

readiness against a top quality

side.”

Today’s game will kick off at

3pm.

Your Earthquake

damaged home!

Talk to us if you are serious about

selling your “As is Where is” home.

We have sold over

100 “As is Where is”

homes and we have

a huge database of

qualified buyers.

We have

achieved record

breaking prices

recently!

The Best Kept Secrets

to Selling Your Home

Selling Secret #1: The first impression is the

only impression

No matter how good the interior of your home looks,

buyers have already judged your home before they walk

through the door. You never have a second chance to

make a first impression. It’s important to make people

feel warm, welcome and safe as they approach the

house. Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive

shrubs and brightly colored flowers. Entry ways are also

important. You use it as a utility space for your coat and

keys. But, when you’re selling, make it welcoming by

putting in a small bench or a vase of fresh-cut flowers.

Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to show

Your house needs to be “show-ready” at all times – you

never know when your buyer is going to walk through

the door. You have to be available whenever they want

to come see the place and it has to be in tip-top shape.

Don’t leave dishes in the sink, keep the dishwasher

cleaned out, the bathrooms sparkling and make sure

there are no dust bunnies in the corners. It’s a little

inconvenient, but it will get your house sold.

Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes first

You’re not actually selling your house, you’re selling

your kitchen – that’s how important it is. The benefits of

remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part

of it is that you’ll probably get 85% of your money back.

It may be a few thousand dollars to replace countertops

where a buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking

price if your kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most

inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new

cabinet hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you can

present buyers with a blank canvas where they can start

envisioning their own style. If you have a little money

to spend, buy one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why

one? Because when people see one high-end appliance

they think all the rest are expensive too and it updates

the kitchen.

Selling Secret #4: Take the home out of your house

One of the most important things to do when selling

your house is to de-personalize it. The more personal

stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can

imagine themselves living there. Get rid of a third of your

stuff – put it in storage. This includes family photos,

memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes.

Staging simply means arranging your furniture to best

showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space.

Selling Secret #5: Don’t over-upgrade

Quick fixes before selling always pay off. Mammoth

makeovers, not so much. You probably won’t get your

money back if you do a huge improvement project before

you put your house on the market. Instead, do updates

that will pay off and get you top dollar. Get a new fresh

coat of paint on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy

some inexpensive new ones. Replace door handles,

cabinet hardware, make sure closet doors are on track,

fix leaky faucets and clean the grout.

Selling Secret #6: Conceal the critters

You might think a cuddly dog would warm the hearts

of potential buyers, but you’d be wrong. Not everybody

is a dog- or cat-lover. Buyers don’t want to walk in your

home and see a bowl full of dog food, smell the kitty

litter box or have tufts of pet hair stuck to their clothes.

It will give buyers the impression that your house is not

clean. If you’re planning an open home don’t leave your

pets around.

Selling Secret #7: Play the agent field

A secret sale killer is hiring the wrong real estate agent.

Make sure you have an agent who is totally informed.

They must constantly monitor the multiple listing

service (MLS), know what properties are going on the

market and know the comps in your neighborhood. Find

an agent who embraces technology – a tech-savvy one

has many tools to get your house sold.

Selling Secret #8: Light it up

Maximize the light in your home. After location, good

light is the one thing that every buyer cites that they

want in a home. Take down the drapes, clean the

windows, change the lampshades, increase the wattage

of your light bulbs and cut the bushes outside to let

in sunshine. Do what you have to do make your house

bright and cheery – it will make it more sellable.

Selling Secret #9: Half-empty closets

Storage is something every buyer is looking for and

can never have enough of. Take half the stuff out of

your closets then neatly organize what’s left in there.

Buyers will snoop, so be sure to keep all your closets and

cabinets clean and tidy.

Yes, everyone is saying sales have slowed

down with solicitors saying that contracts

coming in are noticeably fewer and the

Christchurch City Council LIMS taking only a

couple of days. In fact today as I write this

there are only 39 LIM applications showing.

But there are definitely buyers out there, a

lot of them pre-approved and just waiting

to find their new home. It is an excellent

time to do real estate business if you are

buying and selling on the same market.

DOING A REAL ESTATE

TRANSACTION IN WINTER

It’s not for everyone, but it is an excellent

time to sell. There are always buyers in the

market and winter buyers are usually very

serious and motivated to be out in all

weathers. The number of houses available

is usually less which gives you an advantage

over those who may decide to sell in Spring.

Viewing a house in winter will give a buyer

the opportunity to see how it performs in

terms of winter sun, heating and insulation.

Some buyers prefer to buy in winter.

Presentation is always important inside and

out, so do you best to show your home in its

very best light. Ensure you have done any

small maintenance jobs such as cleaning the

guttering or chimney.

Do you know what the current

value of your home is? Find out,

call Trish now for a free appraisal.

those precious seconds allow you to stand

apart from the rest. Make sure your CV is

top-notch by avoiding these top 10 CV

mistakes.

1. Too focused on Job Duties

One of the most common CV mistakes is to

turn your CV into a dull list of job duties and

responsibilities. Instead you should:

• Demonstrate how you made a difference at

each company

• Provide specific examples of how the

company benefited from your performance

2. Objective Statement that is Too

General

• Many candidates lose their readers from

the very beginning of the CV with their

objective statement

• Consider using a tagline which is a

statement of what you do or what your

specialty is

3. Too Short or Too Long

• Don’t try and squeeze everything onto one

page because you’ve heard that a CV

should never be longer than one page.

That’s a myth!

• Don’t ramble either, your reader will get

bored and give up

• Only include information about yourself that

will get you an interview

4. Use of “I” and “Me”

• CVs should be concise

• Don’t refer to yourself in first person

5. Listing Personal or Irrelevant

Information

• Only include your hobbies and interests if

they relate to the job

• Personal information such as date of birth

and marital status don’t need to be included

6. The Layout

One of the most effective CV formats is the

modified chronological type. Here is the basic

layout:

• Header (name, address, email address,

phone number)

• Objective Statement or Tagline

• A strong profile section (detailing your

experience and skills)

• Reverse chronological employment history

(nothing past 10-15 years ago)

• Education

• Only list hobbies/community activities/

memberships if its relevant to the job

7. Not Including a Profile Summary

• A profile summary should demonstrate the

skill level and experiences directly related to

the position

• To create a high-impact summary statement,

read numerous job adverts to determine

what features are important to employers

• Write a list of your matching skills,

experience, and education. These selling

points should be incorporated into the

summary.

mistakes? Drake Christchurch wants to

Stepping

down after

25 years

Caroline Kellaway with

Ian Brook (new President) and

Gordon Reid (life member)

RECENT Club Elections has seen long

term Club President Caroline Kellaway

step down after an impressive 25 years

in office.

Working Men’s Clubs were

traditionally male domains that women

were not allowed to join.

It was not until the late 80's that rules

changed and women were allowed to

join Clubs and permitted access to the

main drinking bars.

Women as Board Members , in

particular Club President, was unheard

of. That was until 1992 when Caroline

Kellaway was appointed President of the

Woolston WMC, making her NZ’s first

ever female president of a Chartered

Club.

During her extensive time in office

Caroline has worked tirelessly to get the

Club to the where it is now.

“Keeping the Club spirit alive has

always been my main goal, especially

following the earthquakes,” said

Caroline. “We’re community minded and

lost many members through red zoning.

We still contend with bad roads. I’ve

worked long and hard to make sure we

get things upgraded for our members.

I’m pleased to step down with the Club

refurbished and a new restaurant.”

Aside from decades of devoted

involvement with the Woolston Club,

Caroline’s resume includes Vice-

President of Clubs NZ; Chairperson of

Clubs NZ Sports Council; a member of

the Burwood-Pegasus Community

Board; and is a Justice of the Peace. She

has also held roles as a judicial bench JP

and NZ Prison Visiting Justice. In 2008

she was awarded an ONZM for services

in the community.

Caroline says she will remain strongly

involved with the Club and has already

started her next project compiling and

recording the Woolston Club’s history.

Former Vice President Ian Brook has

been appointed new Club Present.
