THE AMERICA’S Cup parade

yesterday was as Kiwi as it gets.

About 6000 people braved

the savage weather and

amongst them was an old fella

called Ron Mackie.

We’ve got a great pic of

Ron meeting Team NZ crew

member Joe Sullivan (see page

4). Ron taught Joe how to sail

many years ago on the Waimak

River.

They kept in contact during

the regatta in Bermuda via text

and yesterday Sullivan spotted

Ron in the crowd on Colombo

St. When he and the other crew

members got of the bus to walk

alongside the fans, Sullivan

went over and met up with

Ron.

Ron’s smile says it all. He

looks very proud.

On pages 6-7, we look at

the police district command

centre.

It’s part of a series we are doing

on policing in Canterbury.

The DCC is the nerve centre

of policing in the region, where

incidents and reports are assessed,

prioritised and dealt

with. Interesting stuff.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw Hagley Park and Botanic Gardens

included in the city boundary on July 10, 1922. On the same

day in 1971, a record crowd of over 57,000 watched the All

Blacks play the Lions at Lancaster Park. On July 11, 1879, the

Post Office building in Cathedral Square was completed. On the

same day in 1951, the waterfront strike ended. On July 13, 1905,

construction of King Edward Barracks began. The building

was completed in 25 days. In the absence of a true town hall,

it was often the venue for large concerts and civic occasions.

On the same day in 1945, severe gales with gusts to 145km/h

were recorded in Canterbury. The following day saw a record

snowfall of 280mm cover most of city (right). On July 15 to 21,

1979, the D’oyly Carte Opera Company gave performances in

the city.

Rapper’s WW1 tribute

Song about

conscription

with opera singer

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A RAPPER and an opera singer

may sound like an unlikely

combination, but honouring

soldiers who fought in World

War 1 has brought them

together.

Christchurch rapper Solomona

Ifopo, aka MC Oblique,

and opera singer Madison

Nonoa have worked together to

write and record a song, Luck

of the Draw, about World War 1

conscription.

It is part of a World War 1

Centenary project, which asked

young artists, musicians and

performers to create works

inspired by war footage.

After submitting a sample, Mr

Ifopo said he was asked by the

organisers to do a collaboration

with Ms Nonoa.

He said it came as a surprise

at first, but he said she had an

incredible voice and had “nailed

it” when they met in Wellington

last month to record the song

with producer Rhombus.

“I was really star struck, to be

honest, to be working with an

opera singer who had performed

all over the world. Walking in I

thought damn, what am I doing

here, I’m so out of my league,”

he said.

He said he had been very

touched by watching footage

of the monthly conscription

ballot, where between 1916 and

1918 the names of 134,393 New

Zealand men were drawn.

“I found the process of

conscription quite disturbing,

because in essence they were

handing out death sentences,”

he said.

Mr Ifopo writes and performs

in the evenings and weekends

around his day job as a builder.

He also organises regular red

zone rap battles to promote

COMBINATION: Christchurch rapper Solomona Ifopo and opera singer Madison Nonoa

(below) have collaborated on a song honouring World War 1 soldiers.

CONSCRIPTION: During World War 1, 134,393 New Zealand

men were conscripted to fight, their fate decided by

numbered marbles drawn from a barrel. Only female clerks

were entrusted to extract the name cards after each number

was called.

emerging Christchurch hip-hop

artists, which have drawn interest

from rappers and producers

across the world.

He said this project became

personal, as he dug into his

own family history as he was

researching for the song.

While talking to his grandfather

about it, he discovered

his own great-grandfather, Neil

McGill, had his name drawn

in the ballot – but narrowly

escaped having to fight.

“He had three kids at the

time, but when he was about to

get conscripted he had another

child. If they had newborns,

they could get out of it. So my

great-aunty they used to call

“Dad’s war effort”, because she

got him out,” he said.

The song, which was released

on Tuesday, was something he

planned to share even with his

grandfather, he said.

“He’s old as, he doesn’t

understand hip-hop. I try not

to let him hear it because underground

hip-hop can be pretty

raw. But I will be showing him

this,” he said.

The song, as well as other

artistic pieces created as

part of the project, can be

Break in weather

predicted

for weekend

• By Gabrielle Stuart

ALTHOUGH RAIN, wind and

even snow are expected today and

tomorrow, relief is coming – the

forecast is for a sunny weekend.

MetService meteorologist Tom

Adams said the weather was

expected to be patchy today and

tomorrow, but on the whole would

stay wet, cold and sleety.

An 8 deg C high is predicted in

Christchurch today and tomorrow,

with temperatures expected to

drop to 3 deg C tonight and 0 deg

C tomorrow night.

“In short, I wouldn’t get too

excited by patches of sunshine,” he

said.

But he said the weekend was

set to clear up, with sunshine,

northerlies and a bit of light cloud

predicted. Then more rain was

expected late on Sunday or on

Monday.

He said the cold weather this

week was caused by a low which

settled over the country.

In Brief

PEDESTRIAN KILLED

A man has died after being hit by

a car on Tuesday night. The crash

happened on Huxley St, between

Colombo and Burlington Sts,

Sydenham, around 9.40pm. The

road was closed while the Serious

Crash Unit investigates, police

said.

BAND SUCCESS

Christchurch musicians in the

National Brass Band of New

Zealand are set to arrive back

in the country today after a

whirlwind week. The band

took silver in the World Music

Contest in the Netherlands.

They also performed concerts in

Hong Kong, Germany and the

Netherlands. They were up against

more than 20,000 musicians and

America’s Cup parade

Rain, sleet but a very warm welcome

About 6000 people braved the freezing rain and sleet to

celebrate Emirates Team New Zealand’s America’s Cup win

yesterday. Reporter Bridget Rutherford and photographer

Martin Hunter went along to capture the action

RON MACKIE always knew Joe

Sullivan would be a good sailor.

He taught the Emirates Team

New Zealand cyclist how to sail

on the Waimakariri River as a

child.

And yesterday, the pair reunited

during the America’s Cup victory

parade through the central city.

The 84-year-old travelled from

Rangiora, and got the chance to

chat with his old student, and get a

close look at the Auld Mug.

He, along with about 6000 others,

braved the freezing conditions

and sleet to welcome the team to

Christchurch.

Mr Mackie, a Waimakariri Sailing

Club member who still gets out

on the water, said he took Sullivan

and his older brother Brayden on a

four-day sailing course.

They were quite good little

sailors. I have a photo of them

at home when they won a club

trophy.”

During the America’s Cup campaign

in Bermuda, the pair had

stayed in contact.

“He sent a very nice text from

Bermuda at the start, and I think it

said: ‘We’re a young team, but we

have the right people, in the right

place, at the right time, and I think

we will improve’,” Mr Mackie said.

Emirates Team New Zealand

went on to beat Oracle 7-1.

Sullivan, a former Olympic

gold medal rower, grew up in

Christchurch before moving to

Picton. He said the reunion with

his old coach was “emotional” and

“fantastic.”

He said Mr Mackie taught him

well.

“It’s great to see Ron, he’s 84 and

still out sailing.”

Redwood man Patrick Bennett

got to kiss the America’s Cup as it

went past and in spite of the chilly

conditions, it was “pretty warm.”

“I’ve been waiting a long time to

see that.”

Siblings Angel, 5, and Dustin

Shaw, 7, were both excited they got

to touch the trophy when helmsman

Peter Burling passed through

with it.

Their mother, Erica Salazar said

it was an “amazing experience” for

them.

Burling said they had received

an “amazing reception” but he was

finding the weather a bit cold.

Central information hub crucial

The Star continues its

series on the work police

in Canterbury are doing

on crime prevention. It

runs weekly covering a

wide range of topics as

police head off trouble

before it starts. Gabrielle

Stuart reports on the

district command centre

ALREADY THERE has been

a death, a robbery, burglaries,

family violence and a breach of

a protection order – and it’s only

9am.

Outside, it’s still cold, and the

city is still sleepy: Footpaths

empty, shopkeepers just putting

out their open signs.

But step through the double

doors into the Christchurch

Central police station, and the

place is abuzz with activity.

The Canterbury District Command

Centre sits at the back

of the station, past the ringing

phones in the call centre, past

the network of desks and departments,

past the officers heading

out or returning from patrol.

There, Senior Sergeant Roy

IN COMMAND: Senior Sergeant Roy Appley looking on as Senior Constable Craig Newman pulls

up camera feeds at the Canterbury District Command Centre. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Appley is watching it all happen.

The district command centre

is laid out like a mini version of

the NASA control-room, or the

bridge of a sci-fi spaceship.

Desks are set up facing a wall

lined with television screens.

To the left are the camera

feeds, streaming live from security

and traffic cameras across

the city. Right now, camera feeds

from the Riccarton bus lounge

are on screen: Several angles

from the waiting room, the cafe,

and the street outside.

To the right, a list of active

police incidents scroll across

a screen: What’s happening,

where it is happening, and who is

responding. Each screen is constantly

changing and updating.

If the command centre resembles

a spaceship, Senior Sergeant

Appley is in the captain’s chair.

Some of the officers working in

the DCC are in jeans and sneakers,

but he is fully uniformed:

Both with crisp police blues and

a serious attitude.

He makes the time to talk,

but is constantly aware of what

is happening around him, and

several times takes time out to

check on his screens. There are

two parts to the job, he said:

Prioritising calls, and getting as

much information as possible to

the officers on the ground.

“It’s quite demanding in here,

because there’s a lot you have to

know and keep your head over.

Often you’re in here all day,

because it’s so fast-paced you

can’t leave. If you drop the ball,

someone could be harmed,” he

said.

This morning there are 164

police “units” available across

Canterbury, and it is his job to

direct them.

By about 9.30am, there have

already been 51 active events.

to co-ordinated crime fighting

That includes the death – a

body found, but not believed to

be suspicious. There are officers

at crashes, knocking on doors

after burglaries or family harm

episodes, and tracking down

people who haven’t turned up in

court.

Covering everything was more

challenging that morning, he

said, as about 20 staff were busy

searching the Kate Valley Landfill

for clues to the disappearance

of Halswell builder Michael

McGrath.

The computers pinged as

events – each call or crime –

arrived on the list.

Each was labelled from one,

most urgent, to four.

With each, Senior Sergeant

Appley, or one of his officers,

would scan the details to see if

there was anything useful they

could provide from cameras in

the area or police files.

Last week, they were notified

that someone had been robbed

by a group of people at the

Washington Way Skate Park on

Moorhouse Ave.

Instantly they were able to

bring up and rewind the camera

recording from the area, and saw

the robbers getting into a fairly

distinctive silver European car.

With a description of the car

and the direction it was heading,

police in the area were able to

pull it over and arrest the suspects

within minutes.

Midway through the morning,

Senior Constable Craig Newman

stopped by. He spent nine

months working in the district

command centre, before going

back to the beat.

He said the information the

DCC was able to give was invaluable.

It had made car chases

safer, he said, as police were able

to watch through traffic cameras

where criminals were heading

and circle ahead to intercept

them, rather than having to

always give chase.

Even during more routine

work, like a door knock after a

burglary, it made a huge difference,

Senior Constable Newman

said.

“That person may have been

a victim of three burglaries, or

their husband may have died in a

and other crimes.

car crash recently. That information

can now be given instantly

to the police officer who is going

to be knocking on their door,”

Senior Constable Newman said.

On Friday and Saturday

nights, a lot of problems started

outside bars.

“Along St Asaph St, where the

road is narrow, there is limited

space and taxis often double or

triple-parked. It’s a recipe for

disaster when intoxicated people

are around,” Senior Sergeant Appley

said.

By regularly checking the cameras,

police could see where lines

were starting to form outside

bars, or where people were starting

to gather.

They could then send a patrol

there before anything escalated

and prevent problems before

they started.

He said many countries in

the world were installing police

cameras and using them to

monitor and watch suspects to

gather evidence of crimes.

Although there was a lot of

potential to do that, he said New

Zealand police were instead

focused on helping victims

and preventing crime, and the

cameras were just another tool.

The most rewarding thing

is when you make a difference

for someone, and that happens

almost daily here,” Senior

Sergeant Appley said.

That is something which had

held true through all the changes

he had seen over 32 years as a

police officer.

He doesn’t mention it, but four

years ago he was made a Member

of the New Zealand Order

of Merit for his work in New

Brighton after the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

“No matter how flash the

technology gets, it all comes

down to our interactions with

people,” he said.

“High trust and confidence

doesn’t come because you look

good in the uniform when

you’re out and about. It comes

when you handle every dealing

well and treat people with

Woods,Wagner clash over rebuild projects

The election is less

than three months

away and the battle

is heating up. Bridget

Rutherford reports

TWO OF the city’s political

heavyweights have squared off,

with one accusing the other of

not knowing enough about the

anchor projects.

Labour Wigram MP Megan

Woods caught the Minister supporting

Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Nicky Wagner out

during question time in Parliament.

Ms Wagner, who is the MP for

Christchurch Central, was asked

how many anchor projects the

Crown was responsible for, and

how many had been completed.

But she did not give specific

numbers. After Dr Woods’ asked

her several times for an answer,

Ms Wagner listed some of the

projects.

She said they were progressing

well but some were the Crown’s

responsibility, and others were

not.

The oval was not the Crown’s

responsibility but that’s completed,

the bus exchange was the

Crown’s responsibility and that’s

FACE OFF: Megan Woods questioned Nicky Wagner about the

earthquake symposium and anchor projects in Parliament last

week.

completed. The Avon Otakaro

Corridor is partially completed,

the Margaret Mahy Playground

is completed,” she said.

The Convention Centre is on

track, to be announced recently,

and the Metro Sports is under

way. The only anchor project that

is not completed, not on the way

at this stage, is the multi-use stadium,

which is the responsibility

of the city council.”

The stoush happened in Parliament

last week. Ms Wagner

believes Dr Woods had been

mischievous about how the

questions were put to her.

Under parliamentary rules, the

first question put by an MP to

another must be sent in advance

so a response can be prepared

when the matter is raised during

formal question time.

Any supplementary questions

that might be raised have to

relate to the original question.

Ms Wagner said the original

question put to her by Dr Woods

was about the postponement

of the Canterbury Earthquake,

Learn, Prepare, Act Symposium.

During question time, Dr

Woods put a supplementary

question, asking Ms Wagner how

many anchor projects the Crown

has responsibility for and how

many had been completed.

“I don’t know why the member

(Dr Woods) chose to stray from

the primary question but I saw

it as an opportunity to provide

the House with an update on the

progress of the anchor projects.”

But Dr Woods told The Star

yesterday that was “simply untrue”

and given the question line,

Ms Wagner should have been

prepared.

Dr Woods said one of the

reasons the symposium was

postponed was because of the lack

of progress on the anchor projects

and central city, so it did relate.

The answer should have been

two numbers. And the fact she

couldn’t answer that, in spite of

being asked three times, is concerning

to me,” she said.

“Frankly, I’m gobsmacked the

minister doesn’t carry around

that information in her head –

how many anchor projects the

Crown has responsibility for and

how many they’ve completed.”

During the stoush in Parliament,

Dr Woods asked: “Is it the

Progress of the Crown’s

•East Frame Residential –

•Avon River Precinct –

real reason the National Government

cancelled the symposium

because they were too embarrassed

in an election year to front

up to the people of Christchurch

over their underwhelming lack

of progress on the anchor projects?

And for the record, it’s 10

and only two completed.”

Replied Ms Wagner: “Absolutely

not, what we were concerned

about was that we could

effectively reflect on the whole

process of recovery, rebuild and

regeneration.”

Dad’s punt wins

Crusader visit

• By Julia Evans

MICHAEL STIRLING is officially the

coolest parent.

At least in the eyes of the pupils from St

Joseph’s School in Papanui who received a

visit from Crusaders players.

Mr Stirling won a special visit from

players David Havili, Pete Samu and Seta

Tamanivalu as part of the Placemakers

Punt for Prizes competition.

During round eight of the Super Rugby

competition, he correctly picked all seven

of the games and was put into a final draw

– which he won.

“It was a bit of sharp shooting,” he said.

So he nominated his daughter Taylor’s

school to receive the visit.

The younger ones appreciate the

players, they look up to them as heroes,”

Mr Stirling said.

The Crusaders hosted a mini coaching

session as well as dishing out a few

autographs and a selfie or two.

Which more than paid off.

“I’ve been told she’s pretty good at

tackling now,” Mr Stirling said.

TACKLE: Crusaders fullback David

Havili is tackled by St Joseph’s School

pupils.

Placemakers Canterbury marketing

manager James Munro said the company

is thrilled to be able to offer such unique

and memorable prizes to rugby fans.

“To see the excitement on the kids’

faces at St Joseph’s was really special and

I know they will be talking about the visit

to their mates for a very long time,” Mr

Munro said.

ocial media used to

ispel crash rumour

• By Andrew King

POLICE HAVE used

social media to quash

rumours a serious crash

between Barrys Bay and

the Hilltop Tavern on

Sunday was caused by a

foreign driver.

Senior Constable

Anita Osborne posted

on the Akaroa Buy

“Before there is any

speculation about

motorbikes, not that I

expect anyone would

jump to conclusions

would they, the driver

– and he lives

A 31-year-old motorcyclist

suffered lifethreatening

injuries when

he collided with a car on

the Christchurch Akaroa

Rd at about 4pm.

He suffered an “open

intensive care paramedic

for Westpac Rescue Mike

McLintock said.

The driver of the car

was uninjured.

Akaroa-based Senior

Constable Osborne said

yesterday she put the post

up to let the locals know

what was going on, but

worded it the way she

has to stop people from

The road was closed for

about three hours after

the crash.

Maddie home but no

health answers yet

• By Gabrielle Stuart

MADDIE COLLINS is home

again, after a two-week trip to a

United States hospital to explore

potential treatment.

But many questions still remain

unanswered over the health of the

13-year-old from West Melton.

Maddie and her family travelled

to the The John Hopkins Hospital

in Baltimore, hoping the treatment

offered there would make

it easier to find a replacement

kidney.

Maddie has been on dialysis for

kidney failure most of her life, but

learnt last month that the dialysis

was putting so much strain on her

heart, she was at risk of a heart

attack.

That made finding a replacement

kidney more urgent.

In 2012, her father, Adam Collins,

donated one of his kidneys to

Maddie, but her body rejected it.

Maddie’s bother, Tom, and

sister, Georgia, were both tested

while in the US to see if they

might be a match for Maddie.

In an online update, Maddie’s

mother, Sarah Manson Collins,

said the family was now waiting

for test results before they could

say what Maddie’s options

were.

She said the doctors believed

there were several treatment options,

but it came at a cost – she

said the cost of the treatment,

which they initially estimated at

$350,000, could almost double.

Givealittle pages have already

raised more than $90,000 for

Maddie, and tickets for a fundraising

night later this month

have already sold out.

Cops Facebook page: Be nice

• By Bridget Rutherford

CANTERBURY Police have

issued a warning to its Facebook

followers saying bullying will

not be tolerated and any such

comments will be deleted.

It comes after complaints police

Facebook pages had become

hubs for bullying and trolling,

sparking calls for better moderation.

Last week, Canterbury Police

wrote on its Facebook page that

it would not tolerate bullying,

abuse, harassment or trolling on

the page.

“If you do post comments like

this they will be deleted – and

you may be blocked if you do it

repeatedly,” the post said.

The post was well received,

with many commending police

for issuing the warning.

Senior Sergeant Stewart Munro

said, given the large number

of comments across all police

pages, it was not always possible

to monitor and moderate every

post.

He said the police public

affairs team helped moderate

them and hide anything racist,

sexist or discriminatory. There

was also a moderation filter. But

it did not hide all negative comments,

he said.

“We do look out for negative

comments and, while Canterbury

Police has not noticed a

recent increase, we recently

issued a reminder that people be

respectful in their comments.”

WEKA PASS RAILWAY

Police use the Facebook page

to get information relating to an

inquiry, or as a way of tracking

people down who are wanted for

arrest or are reported missing.

While some comments were

helpful, others turned nasty.

One comment said police


should “try Eastgate KFC” to

find a woman who had warrants

out for arrest, another described

a man as appearing “straight

from the Planet of the Apes

movie”. Another comment said

one man showed a resemblance

to Voldemort.

Another man whose photo

was posted on the page drew

a wave of comments and puns

relating to his left ear, because

half of it had been removed

somehow.

“He’s going to get an ear full

when his mother finds out about

this,’’ one comment said.

Canterbury University associate

professor and social media

expert, Ekant Veer, said it was

great police had deemed the

behaviour unacceptable.

Hopefully people would see

the page was not there for public

humiliation, he said.

“It’s not new, by any means –

we used to have public floggings

and criminals put in stocks so

people can throw rotten food at

them. This is the modern day

equivalent.”

But Dr Veer said he worried

having more moderation could

take up too much police time

and resource.

Police use wit

against trolls

IN SPITE of many using the

Canterbury Police Facebook

page to make bullying remarks,

at times it can also be a place

for police to show their sense of

humour.

On Friday, police posted a photo

of a booze bus, saying officers

would be out and about ensuring

people did not drink and drive.

One man commented: “What

streets will you be setting up on

in case people want to stop by and

say gidday?”

Canterbury Police responded:

“We’ll be starting at Nicetry Street

and then we’ll be moving to Betterlucknexttime

Avenue. Hope to

see you there!”

In 2014, Samuel Lake went viral

when he taunted Canterbury

Police under his own wanted

mugshot on its Facebook page.

Lake’s comment said: “I need to

get a new mugshot.”

Police responded: “Come see us

and will arrange at no cost”.

In June, police posted a photo

of vintage-looking skis which

had been recovered in the hope of

returning them to their owner.

“Think Ernest Shackleton may

have lost them on his mission to

the South Pole,” one cheeky poster

said.

Stopping Chch from becoming a

Chinese traffic engineer Ming Bai has spent three

years in Christchurch studying how far people

commute and what authorities should invest if they

want to get people out of their cars. He spoke to

Gabrielle Stuart

MORE THAN 21 million people

live in Beijing – about 36 times

the population of Canterbury

packed into an area a third of the

size.

It is unofficially known as

the capital of traffic jams, and

has had 50-lane-wide superhighways

in gridlock.

Vehicles are believed to be responsible

for about 30 per cent of

the city’s smog and air pollution,

which a United States study estimated

kills about 4000 people in

China a day.

Traffic engineer Ming Bai’s

task was finding a solution to the

problem.

The Chinese Government had

committed to reducing emissions,

and Mr Bai was in a team

of people trying to figure out

how to do it: How to get people

out of their vehicles.

That was three years ago.

In 2014, he moved to Christchurch

to undertake a PhD at

Canterbury University.

His goal was to create a formula

to show what kind of transport

investment would be most

effective in getting people to use

cycleways or public transport.

While working on the Beijing

project, he had been frustrated

by the lack of information, he

said.

City planners had to decide

where to place things like train

systems, cycleways or bus routes,

and where they would be most

effective.

But they were often based on

the population of each area, or

used surveys which were unreliable

and expensive.

“If you want to build a

cycleway or public transport system,

you need to know the travel

amounts and that has nothing to

do with the city population. It’s

about how many people would

have to travel short distance

amounts, or long travel distance

Travel snapshot

A database is also kept with

information from each vehicle’s

warrant of fitness, recording the

odometer readings and the owner

addresses. They can be averaged to

show how far vehicles in the area

have travelled.

Using that data, he developed a

formula to calculate approximately

how far the average resident in suburbs

across Christchurch travel.

Overall, he found Christchurch

was an ideal cycling city, he said, as

almost 70 per cent of people lived

within 5-10km of their work.

A shorter travel distance meant

investment in cycle lanes was likely

to be more worthwhile, while a

longer distance meant buses or

trains would be a better investment,

he said.

Going suburb to suburb, he found

people in the east of the city were

likely to travel a lot further than

people in the west.

He found the average person in

Lyttelton travelled further than

people in Yaldhurst – 16km compared

with 10km respectively – in

spite of the fact Lyttelton was closer

to the central city – 12km away

compared to 14km.

His research is almost finished,

and he originally planned to take

what he learned back to Beijing.

But, although he still hoped his

work could be used to improve

transport there, he said he had

grown to love Christchurch and

would like to stay longer-term.

“Christchurch is quiet and

beautiful, and people are very nice

and friendly. The only thing is

the transport system is a bit slow

compared to other cities, so I hope

I could find a good opportunity to

help,” he said.

Setting new goals

WE’RE officially past

the mid-way point of

2017 and the school

holidays are here again

— this year is flying by.

Many families will be

taking a break from their regular

routine with travel, holiday

programmes or perhaps some

quality time at home.

For me, mid-year is an opportunity

to reflect, access

and set some new goals. So the

Monitoring Greater Christchurch

Regeneration June 2017 report,

released late last week, was perfectly

timed.

It summarises regeneration

progress by collating and

analysing data in six key areas

— demographics, the economy,

infrastructure, well-being, housing

and tourism.

When I took on the role as

Minister supporting Greater

Christchurch Regeneration, I

made a commitment to keeping

the community as up-to-date as

possible by regularly and proactively

releasing information.

This report is part of that commitment

and provides a clear

and comprehensive overview of

our regeneration to date.

Monitoring our progress in

this way ensures all critical issues

are noted and addressed by

Nicky Wagner

the relevant agencies in a timely

manner. It also lets us know if

we’re heading in the right direction

and helps us plan ahead or

make any necessary changes.

As a city and a region we’ve

faced many challenges over the

last six-and-half-years but much

of the data shows we’re making

progress. We’re taking advantage

of opportunities to develop and

grow with new, innovative ideas.

As I wrote last week, we’re also

making some progress on the

future of Christ Church Cathedral,

with a Government offer of

reinstatement.

It’s by no means in the bag,

but it’s a strong offer with crossparty

support for legislation.

The next six months will be

very important for Christchurch.

We have a lot on the go and

there are more exciting projects

to come.

Regeneration

The cleanliness of the

Lyttelton Tunnel is being

questioned, with Lyttelton

residents wanting more

done to keep it clean

Jane McCulla – The tunnel

is a disgrace. I have used it

regularly over the past seven

years, and I remember it being

much cleaner before the quakes.

It has got really dirty and

unkempt, I honestly think it

needs to be cleaned more often.

The ceiling is made of yellow

tiles but it is just black now.

A real shame. I say fix the

cleaning machine or buy a new

one. It’s not good for drivers

going through breathing in the

dust and grime . . . probably

carcinogenic, never mind the

look of it . . . not very inviting

coming in to Lyttelton.

Tony Carrabes – I think

it’s the best maintained tunnel

in the world because every

weekday night the tunnel is

completely closed to traffic for

maintenance.

Peter Thompson – Well, for

those that don’t remember, they

used to have cleaning crews for

the tunnel way back in time. I

believe they used to have trucks

with brushes on going through

every few days to keep the tiles

clean.

Tracy Journée – I’ve lived

in Lyttelton for 23 years. Of

course I have noticed how dirty

the tunnel walls have been since

the February and June 2011

earthquakes, who hasn’t. Clearly

there has been a breach in the

tunnel lining in places that has

not been properly addressed yet,

maybe never will be.

Perhaps if cleaning was more

frequent it would have a better

chance of keeping up with the

grime. However, if extra cleaning

schedules went ahead at this

point in time, this would also

mean more tunnel delays.

This would be just unbearable

as we currently share the tunnel

with so many port tankers and

other dangerous goods vehicles

that cannot do their original

route around through Evans

Pass to Sumner. The regular

and constant delays that these

vehicles have caused over the

years have worn me out. Just

recently there was a half-hour

delay with the breakdown of a

logging truck in the tunnel.

I believe it has been poor form

and poor planning from the port

company and our city council

to have not fast tracked this

important alternate route out of

Lyttelton through Evans Pass.

So, while I couldn’t agree more

that our once shiny and white

Lyttelton Tunnel looks more like

the armpit of a gorilla on steroids

most days, I would also like to

plead, please, no more delays in

our tunnel until Evans Pass is safe

for traffic again.

A new parking meter in

Cathedral Square issues

a different kind of ticket

- a Christchurch secret to

explore

Melanie Whitworth –

That’s so funny to watch people’s

reactions. I’ll have to check it

out.

Jacinta Roosing – Might

have to look at this in the school

holidays if the weather is great.

Karen Thomas – Superb

idea – all cities should do this!

Judy Tacón – Brilliant.

In her column last week,

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said

not all roads were ‘eligible’

to be fixed under the cost

sharing agreement and the

SCIRT programme.

FUN: Abigail Neave and her Beca workmate Lisa Mace test out

the different parking meter in Cathedral Square. ​

Tania Salm – Pavements

aren’t eligible? Thanks,

Government. That’s just peachy

for those with mobility issues.

I’d hate to think how someone

in a wheelchair, on crutches,

or with a vision impairment

navigates the uneven pavements

in our city. I’m guessing often

they don’t. How to exclude

whole parts of the population

from public life!

Kelly Monk – So some

roads are not eligible. Could be

because the stupid council is

wasting money on fancy cycle

lanes that hardly anyone uses.

Great Navy Pieces

Priorities council. Fix the roads

first then put in all your fancy

wish list stuff!

Melissa McCutchan – I

find this frustrating as some

roads have been ripped up several

times. If it was only ripped

up once and everything put in at

the same time then more work

could have been done around

the city.

Aileen Kimber – Money

spent on the stupid statue in the

river should have gone on roads

and footpaths.

•More Rise Up, p21

Clear choice this election

THERE ARE various

ways that political

parties make new

policy and come up

with fresh ideas.

Sometimes it is

looking to research and to good

examples from overseas, but

sometimes it is from what we

politicians see on the ground.

For me, policies that respond

to what I am hearing in my

electorate office, on doorsteps

and out and about are really

important. It’s this view from

the ground which has driven

Labour’s families and winter

heating packages this week.

When we saw the measures

that the National Government

put up in the Budget we knew

that these were not what were

most needed.

THey may have been dressed up

as helping low and middle income

families but the reality is that

these tax cuts will benefit those

on the highest incomes the most.

We’ve come up with an

alternative package that delivers

real change and assistance where

it is most needed.

Under Labour’s targeted

families package more than

70 per cent of families with

children will receive more than

they would under National’s

tax cuts. We are also putting in

place measures to make sure that

people can afford to heat their

homes and keep warm in winter.

THe winter energy payment

will be $700 for couples receiving

superannuation or a main benefit

(this will be $450 for single

people). Around one million

people will benefit.

THis election there’s a clear

choice. By not adopting

National’s tax cuts we have

freed up funding for a targeted

package that delivers more to

families with kids and people in

need, and costs less than $900

million a year.

Labour’s priority is investing

in services and boosting the

incomes of low and middle

income families, not an election

tax bribe aimed at those at the

top.

We’ve got to address mental

health and housing and make

a real difference in the lives of

Kiwis, and now is not the time

for tax cuts.

The city council is

considering putting time

to try and curb the boy

Daniel Cossar – So people

like to cruise the hills . . . it will

just make it worse for people

in Christchurch. This town has

nothing to offer at night except

drinking in town and cruising.

But yet the police and public

wonder why there is so much

to do especially for teenagers.

This country is getting more

stupid every day.

Lee Nicholls – Good luck

of movement as guaranteed

under the bill of rights.

Maria Lee – A time restriction?

Does that mean a curfew

or you have to get over the hill in

under five minutes?

Wal Thomas – Silliest idea

this year. One of these days the

Government will legislate to

make any car modifications illegal

and restrict powerful vehicles

to those who need them.

Tanya Hyde – I doubt it would

make a difference – hoons flout

the road laws for fun so won’t be

stopped by a no cruising sign –

unless there’s cops watching the

area like a hawk. Speed humps?

not put a covert camera in hiding

Nichola Tyson – We were

up there recently taking photos

of the aurora, the car parks were

full of boy racers and I’m guessing

they were waiting for all the

photographers to leave so they

can do their thing. More police

patrols are needed up there.

David Lloyd – The present

council administration is out

of control trying to manage

citizens’ rights. It is way over

the top. Stick to your core

responsibilities council. Fix the

roads, footpaths, sewerage and

waster water systems, tidy parks

and gardens. When you have

achieved success at these core issues

perhaps then you can think

about social engineering.

Inner-city living

I SPENT most of my late teens

and 20s living inside the four

avenues and, since becoming

mayor, I have dreamed of

moving back.

I love inner-city living.

Everything is so close at hand.

I love Hagley Park and the

Botanic Gardens. I love being

able to walk down to a movie

theatre or to see a show. I love

the restaurants and cafes that

have sprung up and some of my

old favourites too.

I love to be able to dash down

to the shops you don’t get in the

malls to buy something special

for a birthday present. I miss being

in the heart of the city.

More than 2700 people

responded to the city council’s

Life in Christchurch survey,

which was commissioned to

gauge people’s views on the

central city.

The majority of respondents

reported that they had visited

the central city in the past 12

months, with more than half

visiting for non-work purposes.

Overall, the results indicated

people are feeling reasonably

positive about progress and

value the contribution the

central city makes to life in

Christchurch.

Lianne Dalziel

But for me there was a standout

set of statistics – all to do

with living in the central city.

For me this is what will bring life

and vitality to the city.

With only six per cent of

respondents actually living in

the central city now and only

another two per cent actively

looking to move into the area,

we still have a long way to go.

Close to 30 per cent were

considering moving in the

future, but the majority of those

indicated they would wait for the

rebuild to finish.

One of the main concerns

people had about a move to the

central city was the lack of affordable

housing options.

We have already exempted

inner-city residential

developments from development

contributions, but I think we

need to do more and I’ll be

working with the Development

Forum to do just that.

Freshly roasted coffee draws customers to city cafe

Many of Christchurch’s discerning coffee

drinkers will by now have discovered the

Magnitude Café & Roastery in Tuam Street.

Established in June 2016, Magnitude offers

excellent coffee freshly roasted on the

premises and brewed by their three expert

baristas, as well as a choice selection of

delicious café-style food, made on the

premises, for lunch and morning and

afternoon teas.

In addition to freshly made sandwiches,

wraps and sweet treats, the menu features

delicious hot potatoes, which are baked in

a King Edward original potato baker and

served with a choice of herbs.

The café itself has an interesting pedigree.

It was the brainchild of David Humphrey,

the previous owner of Dunedin’s iconic

coffee house, Stewarts, which was

established by the late Tom Stewart in 1956.

An RAF Pilot, Tom flew Lancaster bombers

in the famous Dam Buster Squadron 617.

Having been shot down over Germany and

taken prisoner of war, he was repatriated

back to Dunedin where, with friends and

his English-born bride, talked about the

wonderful coffee houses, commonly called

the ‘penny universities’, which they had

frequently visited in England.

The suggestion arose that Tom should open

one here in New Zealand, and so in 1956

Stewarts Coffee House in Dunedin was

born. It was the first of many.

In 1975, Tom retired and sold the coffee

house to David, who continued the

established tradition of roasting coffee

beans on the premises. David also saw the

opportunity to supply top-quality, freshly

roasted coffee to other establishments, and

soon had a large clientele of discerning

cafes and restaurants buying his coffee.

After selling the business in 2008, he found

he had time on his hands and he missed the

people he had been dealing with. So he

bought a building in Tuam St, Christchurch,

fitted it out as a roastery and cafe, found a

suitable name, Magnitude, and established

what today is a destination cafe providing

what many agree is the best and freshest

coffee available. David's son-in-law, Gerard

van Rooy, learnt to roast coffee whilst

working for Stewarts and is an expert in

obtaining perfection.

Apart from enjoying a cup on the premises,

many customers buy a coffee to take away

and enjoy at home or in the office.

Magnitude Café & Roastery is located

at Unit 2, 314 Tuam St and is open

7am-4pm, Monday to Friday.

Tim McInnes

Film festival brings the heavy subject of

Christchurch film director Tim McInnes’ documentary will

feature in next month’s New Zealand International Film

Festival. He spoke to Bridget Rutherford about filming

alternative education youths over the course of the year

and seeing them grow up

Tim, can you tell me about

your new documentary, One

Island of Good?

It’s a big one. It’s not a lighthearted

film. It’s a documentary

about a heavy subject. Nobody

knows what alternative

education is. When we’ve asked

people in the past they give us a

glazed-over look and say: ‘Yeah I

think so’ which means they have

no idea.

It’s a place for young people to

go once they’ve been expelled,

they are under the age of 16,

which makes them a ward of

the state. Legally, they have to

be supervised and they go to

alternative education. YMCA

chief executive Josie Ogden

Schroeder approached me about

a project that involved the street

art at the YMCA. But as we kept

talking I think she realised there

was an opportunity to go a bit

bigger than giving kids some

street art lessons – to tell more of

the story.

Alternative education providers

are funded to a level, and they

deal with some of the most

time-consuming students in the

education system. They haven’t

succeeded in mainstream schools.

The Ministry of Education

doesn’t really have any interest in

doing that much with them.

So long story short, it turned

into a documentary where

we would follow them for 12

months, and part of that was a

trip to Nepal so we could share

their experience where they

could relate to another culture

that had a similar experience

with earthquakes. And we

thought hopefully down the

track, we could see whether

there was any positive change.

The YMCA funded it and got in

behind it.

When did the filming take

place?

We filmed from December

2015, to December 2016. We

did a year of filming and six

months of post production.

We were filming every week.

ACHIEVEMENT: Director Tim McInnes’ documentary One Island of Good will screen at the Isaac

Theatre Royal during the New Zealand International Film Festival next month.

It was a massive commitment.

We needed that in order to

gain the trust of the people we

were filming. On the trip, we

gave them a camera because

we wanted them to be able to

tell their own stories. Some of

those were pretty colourful, so

alternative education to the screen

It’s not like a normal school,

where they would all turn up.

Here, you could turn up and

there was literally one person

in the class that day. Other

days the class would be full but

nobody was prepared to talk to

you, while other days everybody

wanted to talk to you. The staff

were very accommodating.

Do you think you saw a

positive change for them over

the year?

I’m not a psychologist, so I

can’t make any meaningful comment

on if they had any positive

long term outcomes. But over

the course of 18 months they’ve

just grown up. Some started as

14-year-olds and now they’re 16.

There are massive changes on

a monthly basis. At the time we

finished, there were a couple of

students we didn’t know their

whereabouts. Others have gone

back to mainstream school or

gained employment.

Did you get to know them

quite well?

Yes and no, they only have to

stay until they are 16. If a student

was there for three months and

turned 16, they were off. That’s

one of the issues, people coming

and going all the time. It ain’t

easy.

JOURNEY: One Island of Good filmed alternative education

students over a year, including during a trip to Nepal.

Why did you think it was

so important to showcase

alternative education?

We were approached to make

the project by the YMCA. Josie

had been making a lot of noise

about it and getting nowhere.

It was up to me to put it into a

format where it was going to be

picked up by the film festival.

And we were really lucky.

About four months in I had no

idea whether we were going to

get a film out of it or not. I think

the cause was worthy. Some of

the old ways of thinking is to

kick their arses and tell them

to sort it out. This film tries really

hard to not be left or right.

It tries to say if you don’t look

after everyone you’re going to

have problems down the track.

Four or five months in, that was

the point you don’t just give up

because it’s a bit hard. That’s part

of the ethos of the film.

Did you always expect to have

it screened at the film festival?

That was goal number one.

It was a pretty ambitious goal.

There’s no point in making

something like this if no one’s

going to see it. It’s never going to

be Spiderman. It’s got to be a film

which is worth watching.

Where will it will be

screened?

It will premier at the Isaac

Theatre Royal. So it will screen

in Christchurch, then in Wellington,

and it may go to Dunedin,

depending on their schedule.

And after that, who knows?

Would you say this is

the hardest project Ruffell

Productions has done?

I would say it’s probably the

hardest. Harley, my business

partner, said it was probably the

most worthwhile thing we’ve

done. The Children’s Commissioner

Andrew Beescroft, who

features in it, said this work isn’t

for the faint-hearted.

And this would have consumed

your life for the last 18

months, but what do you like to

do in your spare time?

I don’t have spare time, I really

don’t. My down time is very

much for me and my family. I

just try and unplug.

We’ve had two documentaries

in two festivals this year, One

Island of Good, and Delaney

Davidson: Devil In The Parlour,

which was at the Edge Festival.

How did you get into the

industry?

I started filming in 2001. I

was behind the camera living in

Nelson for a couple of years. I

was working filming on fishing

boats down in South Westland

on 42ft boats and on 1000

footers with helicopters on them.

I was filming for Rough Fishing,

it was a bit like The Deadliest

Catch but the New Zealand

version of it. I ended up picking

up a job literally wrapping cables

and getting lunch for the crew in

Christchurch back in 2003.

Then in 2004 I came back to

Christchurch and managed to

get work for Ruffell Productions.

I didn’t think I would buy the

business how many years later. I

also worked in the UK producing

and directing reality, factual

based TV documentaries.

Then in 2009 I came back and

two days before the first earthquake

I bought a house. In 2012

bought the business.

Flowers brighten the gloom of winter

.kiwi

NOW IN the depth of winter, we

are experiencing regular, heavy

frosts. Soils are wet and cold, winds

are chilly and we’ve even had snow.

However, the gloom of winter

is brightened by the appearance

of blooming azaleas, camellias,

early flowering rhododendrons

and early flowering cherries. It’s an

excellent time to plan your summer

garden as spring is just around

the corner.

It’s harvest time for those winter

maturing vegetables that were

planted in late summer/autumn.

Veges to harvest in July include

artichoke (Jerusalem), broccoli,

brussels sprouts, cabbages, cauliflowers,

carrots, celery, leeks, lettuce,

parsnips, silver beet, spinach

and swedes.

Continue to spread compost

around maturing vegetables to help

with excess water and improve the

soil. Inspect your vegetable plants

regularly for snails – they appear to

become more cold-hardy every year.

Where possible, prepare the soil

for spring plantings, digging to a

depth of 200mm and adding compost

as you go. Ensure it is mixed

in well.

Winter flowering annuals should

now be providing masses of colour

in your gardens and containers.

Remove dead flowers to encourage

continuous blooming throughout

winter. Flowering winter annuals

include; ageratum, calendulas,

cineraria, cornflower, nemesia,

pansies, poppies, primulas, snapdragon,

stock and sweet pea. Top

up existing plantings with ‘potted

colour’ annuals that have been

grown to the flowering stage.

Complete pruning of deciduous

fruit trees and spray with copper

oxychloride to prevent fungal diseases

reappearing in spring. Grapes

and kiwifruit can also be pruned.

Garden centres and nurseries now

have new season fruit trees in stock.

Plan your purchase carefully.

Part of your fruit tree selection

should be to ensure you have a

year-round supply of fresh fruit.

You can easily do this by planting a

few varieties that crop at different

times of the year. In warmer areas,

a variety of citrus are now ripening,

including mandarins, lemons,

limes, grapefruit and early oranges.

Last plantings of strawberries

should be completed this month.

Garden centres are bursting

with new stock of a wide range of

ornamental trees and shrubs. July

is a very safe month for planting.

Ensure your planting sites are

well prepared with the addition of

compost and have adequate drainage.

Pop in a planting tab when

planting your trees/shrubs to give

them the best start. Plan out what

and where you will plant. Check

the heights that plants will grow to

avoid overcrowding in future years.

July is probably the main month

for pruning roses throughout the

country as the plants are now

dormant. Don’t be afraid to prune

your roses quite hard as rose

bushes are increasingly resilient.

Spread fresh compost around the

base of the bushes.

One week after pruning, spray

with lime sulphur or a copper

compound such as copper oxychloride

to ward off fungal diseases

(do not mix these sprays together),

then three or four days later, apply

a horticultural spray to kill off any

overwintering pests (again do not

mix with copper).

Garden hygiene is very important

with roses so remove any

dead leaves or diseased wood from

the ground. Remove these from

the property as they can harbour

overwintering fungal diseases and

re-infect your plants come spring.

Don’t forget about your houseplants

in winter. Try not to overwater

them. Many only require water

once a week or fortnight. A light

misting of foliage with warm water

stops leaves from drying in warm

indoor conditions.

HARVEST: It’s time to eat those winter vegetables.

BRIGHT: Flowering rhododendrons should now be in full bloom.

Theatre/Arts

Teacher joins former students’ cast

FIRST SHOW: Juliet Reynolds-Midgley

(second from left) with fellow cast members

Sophie Petersen, Nick Hollamby and Ben

Robertson from So Keen Productions.

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WHEN JULIET Reynolds-

Midgley first heard her former

students were creating their own

theatre company, she jumped on

board to help out right away.

Having taught theatre entrepreneurs

Sophie Petersen and

Keeneth Love at the National

Academy of Singing and Dramatic

Art, she thought it would

be great to take part in their new

company’s first production.

Reynolds-Midgley, 44, will star

in So Keen Productions’ debut

show Songs for a New World. She

continues to teach at the NASDA.

She described Petersen and

Love’s new company as bringing

a youthful energy to the arts

scene.

They are making a splash,” she

said.

The spectrum of music which

the show challenges its performers

to sing – from gospel-style

to jazz – and the fact Songs for a

New World is rarely-staged in the

city, is what drew her in to the

part.

“I have loved the songs for a

very long time . . . each song is

so beautifully crafted. It really

is a snapshot of someone’s life,”

Reynolds-Midgley said.

The abstract musical is a collection

of songs themed around “the

moment of decision”.

“It is the human condition –

how we deal with relationships,

adversity, and how we just laugh

at things and bring humour to

it,” she said.

In her role as Woman 2,

Reynolds-Midgley will sing four

solos designed to be sung by four

different women of the same age

but from different time periods

in history.

“It could be the same woman in

a variety of different situations,”

she said.

Born in Surrey, England,

Reynolds-Midgley moved to

New Zealand to study jazz at

Music Arts – based at the former

Christchurch Polytechnic Institute

of Technology – in 1999 after

her parents decided to retire in

the area.

It was there she met her

husband Gwyn Reynolds, who

is now head of the Music Arts

school at Ara Institute of Canterbury.

Growing up, she had no escape

from the musical realm. Her

father Vernon Midgley was a

broadcaster and singer at the

BBC, performing in many fulllength

operas on its Radio 3 station.

Reynolds-Midgley’s aunty,

Maryetta Midgley, broadcasted

regularly on BBC’s Radio 2 and

appeared frequently in The Good

Old Days on BBC television.

Reynolds-Midgley’s mother

and grandfather were also opera

singers, while her grandmother

was a pianist.

She was cast into the limelight

at a young age first performing in

the CBS recording of South Pacific

with Dame Kiri Te Kanawa,

Mandy Patinkin and Sarah

Vaughan.

She appeared as a soloist in her

early 20s with the BBC Concert

Orchestra for Radio 2 in a celebration

of her father broadcasting

for 25 years.

“Just being put in front of

people in a high-stake situation

at that age, you soon learn some

really good skills,” she said.

•Songs for a New World,

originally written and

composed on Broadway

by Jason Robert Brown,

will run until Sunday at

The Great Hall: The Arts

Centre of Christchurch. To

Fire-breather’s journey from warming up Crusaders fans to the stage

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

LEARNING TO breath fire

could be seen as a daunting

way to get into the city’s theatre

scene.

But that’s how Woolston’s

Aaron Boyce, 48, debuted on the

stage, blowing fire for the former

Christchurch Drama Centre’s

show Linnaeus Prince of Flowers.

“Somebody said to me ‘do you

want to be a fire breather?’ And

I said I am willing to learn,” he

said.

Nearly 20 years down the

track, Boyce may not be breathing

flames in his latest show but

he will play a key role in Top

Dog Theatre’s latest show Up ‘N’

Under by John Godber.

Set in England, the show is

based around an ex-professional

rugby league player called

Arthur (Tom Trevella), who

bets his life savings he can train

a team to beat the undefeated

Cobblers Arm.

Boyce has two roles in the

show. He plays Reg Welsh, a

member of the Cobblers Arm,

and amateur league player Steve,

who helps form the team to take

down the Cobblers Arm side.

He described Steve as “flamboyant”

and a “bit of a lad”

while Reg Welsh is mature and

well-to-do, with a bit of coin

behind him. He said Steve is

basically the comic relief in the

ENTERTAINING: The Up “N”

Under cast (from left) Aaron

Boyce, Dougal Frame, Miriam

van Voorthuizen, Darren

Sundborn, Dan Crossen and

Tom Trevella. ​

show. Taking part in the show

was a reunion for Boyce who

first performed with fellow

actors Tom Trevella and Dan

Crossen in the Top Dog Theatre

production The Merchant of

Venice in 2005.

Since his debut as a fire

breather, Boyce has performed

with a variety of theatre

companies, including Showbiz

Christchurch and Riccarton

Players.

In spite of burning himself

the odd time, Boyce still enjoys

breathing fire on occasion.

In 1996, when Boyce was fireblowing

at a Crusaders game, he

suffered minor burns and loss of

hair and eyebrows.

“I blew straight into a

nor’wester and the flames just

came straight back at me,” he

said.

Lyttelton Arts Factory until

Travel

Showcasing culture and cuisine

• By Mike Yardley

IN STARK contrast to Tokyo’s

big-city bling and buzz, Kyoto

is where to head if you want to

draw deeply from Japan’s cultural

well and its commanding

showcase of traditional cuisine.

A sure-fire way to immerse

yourself in the sheer

magnificence of Kyoto’s foodie

scene is to join an expertly

guided tour.

I enlisted the specialists at

Japan Wonder Travel and joined

their Nishiki FooDrink Tour.

My three hour exploratory

began in the heart of Kyoto’s

shopping district on Shijo-dori,

lined with luxury boutiques and

elegant department stores, where

immaculately coiffured women

are attired in kimonos.

Running parallel with Shijodori,

a block back, is the showstopping

foodie mecca of Nishiki

St, home to the 400-year-old

Nishiki Market. This vast and

venerable covered emporium,

which stretches for 400-long

metres, is understandably

acclaimed as the kitchen of

Kyoto.

Before we plunged head-first

into this market frenzy, bursting

at the seams with 130 specialist

stores, our guide Tatsuya

(right) led us to a stunning

doughnut shop, adjacent to the

entrance. Mai Doughnuts has a

fostered cult following amongst

Kyotoites, who flock to munch

on their soy milk doughnuts,

which are much lighter and

fluffier parcels of deliciousness,

compared to their Western

contemporaries. And they’re not

saccharine-sweet.

Tatsuya then led us into the

head-spinning trading throng of

Nishiki’s cavernous wonderland,

which was teeming with the

collision of wide-eyed cameratoting

tourists and seasoned

locals, concertedly going about

their shopping. They know the

place inside-out, as if it was their

own pantry.

From the eels arranged on

beds of ice like necklaces or

woven baskets brimming with

fresh chestnuts, the culinary

offerings are a triumph of

food art. All of the fresh fish is

packaged, so it doesn’t smell.

Grilled squid, tempura, rice

balls… even the most humble

of items are royally displayed

like treasures. The signage left

me completely baffled, but most

shops are only too happy to let

you graze on free samplings.

Tatsuya’s advice? Try

everything — it won’t kill you.

Some of the market shops

are old-timers, like Uchida,

which has been selling pickled

vegetables here, like eggplants,

radish and pumpkin, for 80

years.

Miki Keiran is famed for its

fluffy dashi maki (omelette)

made with kelp stock. We

snacked our way through the

market with hearty, voracious

intent, sampling hamo

(daggertooth conger eel), fried

fish cakes, yuba sashimi and

omusubi (high-quality rice balls)

and peanut rice crackerballs!

We sampled sake in a shop

run by the same family across

18 generations! And then

there’s the green tea, iconic of

Kyoto. Matcha powder is used

to make the tea and Matcha

mania has transformed Kyoto’s

confectionary, with a stunning

array of Matcha-laden sweets,

including mochi and jellies.

Tatsuya also ushered us into

Nishiki Tenmangu Shrine, a

gorgeous little shrine that is

dedicated to the Shinto god of

learning. We noticed students

popping in, to ring bells, clap

hands and pray for good grades

or to pass a test. The shrine is

more than a thousand years old!

With more than 1600 Buddhist

temples and 400 Shinto shrines,

Kyoto’s cultural reverence runs

deep.

A superb accommodation

option is the Kyoto Tokyu Hotel

(above), which embodies the

refined charm and traditional

design qualities of Kyoto

throughout its property.

Centrally located in the old city,

the hotel upholds the spirit of

miyabi, an aesthetic ideal akin to

isolated elegance.

There’s a restful, serene

ambience throughout the

hotel, accentuated by a glorious

waterfall garden in the central

courtyard. The staff, as you’d

expect, are incredibly gracious,

warm and attentive.

Featuring sleek, sophisticated

décor inspired by nature, Kyoto

Tokyu Hotel offers an authentic

flavour of Japanese hospitality,

with all of the creature comforts

and luxuries you’d expected from

an upscale hotel.

Be sure to dine at Kazahana,

which exudes a nostalgic

ambience with its classic Kyoto

specialities. Offering all day

dining, including a sterling

buffet breakfast, Kazahana

features an open kitchen with

chefs cooking before your eyes.

Kyoto Tokyu is a member

of Preferred Hotels & Resorts.

Fitting send-off planned for Vatuvei

.kiwi

DEPARTING Warriors wing

Manu Vatuvei has been named

in the No 5 jersey one last

time although he won’t feature

in Friday’s NRL clash against

Penrith.

The 31-year-old is an honorary

selection only in an extended 24-

man squad with Ken Maumalo

confirmed to start against the

Panthers on the left wing in

jersey No 21.

The tribute is part of the club’s

comprehensive plans to farewell

The Beast’ in style, before he

leaves New Zealand on Saturday

to join UK Super League side

Salford.

The club’s Penrose home

ground is being renamed

‘Manu Vatuvei Stadium’ for

the night and the 226-game

veteran will be introduced to the

crowd when he leads the side out

before kick-off.

Warriors players will also

have his name, signature and

club number embroidered in

their playing jerseys and will

warm-up in special T-shirts

emblazoned with Vatuvei #115

on the back.

“While Manu isn’t contractually

able to play for us on Friday

night, I really wanted to honour

him by including him in our

team list,” said Warriors coach

Stephen Kearney.

“He’s one of the club’s greatest

players and we are really looking

forward to giving him a fitting

send-off on Friday night.

“He won’t play but he’ll

certainly run down the tunnel

before kick-off one last time.”

While Vatuvei will be reduced

to a spectator role, the 10thranked

Warriors welcome back

hooker Issac Luke and centre

Solomone Kata, as they look to

leapfrog the ninth-placed Panthers

on the NRL ladder.

Luke returns after overcoming

a dislocated shoulder suffered

in the round 16 win over the

Bulldogs, while Kata reclaims

his position after returning from

bereavement leave following the

recent passing of his brother in

Tonga. – NZ Herald

The biggest range of vehicles in one location

More Havilis poised for Crusaders

• By Gordon Findlater

DAVID HAVILI has made

a name for himself in the

Crusaders this season and soon

enough he may not be the only

Havili in red and black.

We’ve seen plenty of Whitelocks

run out for Canterbury and

the Crusaders, and two of the

three Barretts have also graced

AMI Stadium. Could the Havilis

be the next family to dominate

Super Rugby?

After slowly making a name

for himself with Tasman and the

Crusaders, David has experienced

a breakout season for the

Crusaders in 2017.

It may not be long until his

younger brother William Havili

is knocking on the Super Rugby

door. The first-five was a standout

for Nelson College during his

final year in 2016. He notched

up 134 points in last year’s UC

Championship and is expected

to feature alongside his older

brother in this year’s NPC.

“It would be awesome to run

on with (William), but he’s got

to perform in club rugby and the

warm-up games going into the

season,” David said.

Another Havili is also making

a name for himself in the UC

Championship with Nelson

College.

Caleb Havili is the cousin of

David and William. The lock is

currently in Christchurch after

attending the Junior Knights development

camp which is run by

the Crusaders. The camp brings

together top secondary school

players in the Crusaders region.

Yesterday, Caleb was chosen

in the 25-man squad to play

the Hurricanes under-18s in a

curtain-raiser to the Crusaders v

Hurricanes Super Rugby match

in Wellington on Saturday.

“I try not to let people know

that I’m a Havili. When they

find out, they always ask if I’m

related to William and David,”

said Caleb.

The two older Havilis play in

the backs, whereas Caleb is one

of the biggest locks around at

Before joining the Crusaders,

David was working towards a

Dunn stable being

probed for positive

caffeine tests

• By Gordon Findlater

THE ROBERT Dunn Racing Stable

is under investigation after returning

positive swabs for a banned substance.

The Racing Integrity Unit is

investigating positive swabs containing

caffeine which were taken at the Nelson

Winter Cup twoday

meeting on

June 9 and 11.

Integrity unit

chief investigator

Neil Grimstone

refused to give

details of the

investigation, other

than to confirm a

number of horses

from the Dunn

Robert Dunn

stable produced

positive tests.

The stable had

four wins at the meeting. Billy Badger

won twice, including the Winter Cup.

Dream to Reality and Hayden’s Meddle

also won races.

Mr Grimstone would not say how

many horses had returned positive tests

but The Star understands it could be as

many as five.

Harness Racing New Zealand chief

executive Edward Rennell says the case

is an unusual one because everyone in

the racing industry knows that caffeine is

easy to test for.

Robert Dunn told The Star yesterday he

was mystified by the positive swabs.

“It’s just one

of those things.

Somehow it’s got

into our test. It

could have been

contamination but

we don’t know at

this stage,” he said.

Dunn has

three previous

convictions for

Neil Grimstone

breaches of the

prohibited substance

rule.

The first was in Australia in 1992,

which resulted in a six-month suspension

of his trainer’s licence.

The second was in New Zealand in

2004 and resulted in a $500 fine.

The most recent was in June last year

and resulted in a $4000 fine.

Big decisions remain over workload of All Blacks

FROM ALLIES to enemies, the

Crusaders and Hurricanes will

put their All Blacks friendships

on hold this week for their

final Super Rugby round-robin

match and Steve Hansen will be

watching closely to see who of

his senior players will be selected

after such a torrid Lions series.

The All Blacks coach hinted a

day after the 15-15 draw at Eden

Park, which tied the series, that

he would like to think some of

his Crusaders players might be

rested from Saturday’s match at

Westpac Stadium ahead of their

quarter-final a week later.

Skipper Kieran Read is an

obvious player who needs to be

carefully managed over the next

few weeks, and his Crusaders

teammate Sam Whitelock is another.

Even hooker Codie Taylor,

who started all three tests in the

absence of Dane Coles and, like

Whitelock, Owen Franks, Joe

Moody and Israel Dagg, played

against the Lions in Christchurch

Latest Christchurch news at www.

.kiwi

four weeks ago, will need to be

monitored.

All of which puts Crusaders

coach Scott Robertson in a tricky

position. Robertson’s twin priorities

are obviously player welfare

but also topping the points table

after the round-robin in order to

qualify for a home final should

his team get that far. At the moment

the Crusaders are leading

by two points over the Johannesburg-based

Lions. If Robertson’s

men suffer their first loss of the

Thursday July 13 2017

season against the Hurricanes in

Wellington, and the Lions beat

the Sharks at Kings Park on Sunday

morning, then the Crusaders

face the prospect of travelling to

Ellis Park for the final.

The Hurricanes are currently

fifth, one point above the Chiefs,

and would like to stay there in

order to play a potential quarterfinal

against the Brumbies in

Canberra rather than having to

travel all the way to Cape Town

to play the Stormers. Reinforcing

the need for care from both

Robertson and his opposite

Chris Boyd is the fact that the

Crusaders’ 20-12 victory over the

Hurricanes in round 12 in May

was one of the matches of the

season in terms of its intensity.

No 10 Beauden Barrett will

have to be looked after by Boyd,

but the Hurricanes are lucky in

that their forwards haven’t had

the battering that the Crusaders’

pack have had in the series.

• By Ross Kiddie

THE LAUNCH of Holden’s

latest generation Barina

presented a few surprises.

Gone is the sporty RS

model, and gone, too, is the

delightful 1.4-litre turbocharged

engine.

The new range has a

1.6-litre naturally-aspirated

engine only and is available

in just two specifications

LS and LT; the LS

at $22,490 gets a manual

gearbox or an automatic for

an extra $1500 while the LS

as tested is automatic only

and sits at $25,990.

It doesn’t surprise me

that the Barina range has

been rationalised a little,

the small hatchback segment

is a tough market to

conquer, and efficiencies

within a line-up are crucial

to models being competitive.

All that aside, the new

Barina hasn’t lost any of the

concept which has made it

a popular model here, the

cheeky five-door punches

above its weight with high

in-cabin comfort, a good

level of specification, and

performance and economy

you would expect from a

vibrant 1598cc engine.

Holden rate the 16-valve

unit with an 85kW power

output and 155Nm of

torque. It is an engine

which likes to work hard,

but the designers haven’t

lost sight of the fact that a

car like the Barina is destined

for a life working at a

slower pace and hauling in

acceleration at city speeds.

Even in these conditions

the engine works tirelessly

and has a torque structure

which doesn’t struggle

against a free-revving

nature. It is coupled to a

six-speed automatic and

the low and close ratios

provide an almost seamless

flow of power. There’s

a manual sequential shifting

control function at the

main shifter itself which

can be manipulated by the

driver’s thumb, it is quite

intuitive and doesn’t necessitate

movement of the

gearshift lever.

Together the transmission

and engine work in

harmony, the engine is

refined as well as having

the necessary power

outputs to glean lively

acceleration along with the

efficiencies needed to lure

the fuel-conscious buyer.

The important figures

are a 11.2sec time to make

HOLDEN BARINA: Fuel-efficient engine.

100km/h from a standstill,

and a combined cycle claim

of 7.2-litres per 100km

(39mpg). I worked the

engine quite hard during

testing time but it

still returned an 8/100km

(35mpg) figure. That

along with a 6.2l/100km

(46mpg) instantaneous

figure at 100km/h, the

engine is unstressed at that

speed turning over at just

2250rpm.

• Price – Holden

Barina LT, $25,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4039mm;

width, 1735mm;

height, 1517mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,

1598cc,

85kW, 155Nm, sixspeed

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11.2.sec

• Fuel usage –

7.2l/100km

For that highway

overtake the engine works

well through the midrange,

a kick-down, or

manual shift to third or

fourth gear will initiate a

6.8sec, 80-120km/h time.

The Barina is also an

agile, nimble model when

asked to tackle a quick

corner or two. It rides on

high-quality Continental

tyres (205/50 x 17in), they

command grip and force

under load doesn’t have

them complaining. There is

positive directional accuracy

and precise turn-in, the

steering isn’t overly quick

but it is sharp enough to

exude a sporty feel.

In saying that, you have

to take into account the

Barina’s suspension isn’t

sophisticated, a tube beam

rear axle doesn’t allow a

lot of suspension freedom

but, that aside, its handling

must be described as well

above satisfactory.

The spring and damper

rates are also set up for a

comfortable in-cabin ride,

they accept the big hits

from Christchurch’s uneven

road surfaces without too

much shock entering the

cabin.

That is an area Holden

have done well with;

even though the Barina

is sourced from Korea,

it has been engineered

for Australian and New

Zealand conditions

through development work

at Holden’s Melbourne

testing facility. The result

is a quiet-riding, good handling

and comfortable car

which does little wrong in

terms of performance and

handling.

It is also specced well,

even in low grade form.

The higher grade LS gets

an artificial leather trim

while the front are seats

heated for those frosty

Christchurch mornings.

My Link infotainment,

keyless entry and ignition,

cruise control, height

adjustable driver’s seat and

advanced trip computer

settings are all fitted. It

must be mentioned too, the

new Barina qualifies for a

five-star Australasian New

Car Assessment Program

safety rating.

As history has served

to prove, Holden is the

past master at introducing

new variants in a model’s

life-cycle and I’m sure the

Barina won’t be any different.

I know Holden on both

sides of the Tasman are

concentrating hard on having

an entire line-up compatible

with New Zealand’s

demands when Australian

manufacture finishes at the

end of this year, so it may

be some time before Barina

evolves.

In the interim, I

wouldn’t let that prevent

me from a purchase if I was

a small, five-door hatchback

buyer.

Home

Are two real estate agencies

better than one when it

comes to selling your house?

It has become less common to see

properties festooned with a variety of

‘for sale’ signs, but whether you choose

to work with one agency or several is

all a matter of personal choice. Either

way, there are a few important things to

bear in mind.

Both options require the signing

of a legal contract between you

and the agency involved. These

contracts, known as agency or ‘listing’

agreements, are legally binding so it’s

a good idea to get advice from your

lawyer before you sign.

As the name suggests, a general

agency agreement gives more than

one agency the right to market your

property. You will be asked to sign a

general agency agreement with each

agency. Each one will work with you to

arrange open homes, and they will all

market the property differently.

“If you opt for a sole or ‘exclusive’

agency agreement, you are giving one

agent or agency the exclusive right

to market and sell your property,”

explains Kevin Lampen-Smith, chief

executive of the Real Estate Agents

Authority (REAA).

“If you sign a sole agency agreement

you should not sign another agency

agreement with any other agent until

you have cancelled the first agreement.

If you don’t, you may have to pay all

agents a commission, regardless of

which one arranged the sale.”

Make sure you check what happens

when the sole agency agreement

is cancelled. Some sole agency

agreements become general agency

agreements when cancelled – this

means that you will also have to cancel

the general agency agreement if you no

longer want to work with the agency.

If you change your mind after

signing a sole agency agreement

you can cancel it by 5pm on the first

working day after you have been given

a copy. This must be done in writing

(such as letter, email or fax).

“Whether you choose one agency

or take the general agency approach,

the Real Estate Agents Authority

recommends using agencies that

choose to use specific clauses that we

have designed to reduce the risk to you

of paying two commissions,” Lampen-

Smith says.

These clauses help protect you by

making it clear when the agreement

ends and when you need to pay a

commission.”

If you don’t use these agencies, your

sole agency agreement for a residential

property may be for a term longer

than 90 days. You should note though

that you or the agent can cancel the

agreement at any time after those 90

days.

“However, if an agent carries out any

work before the agreement is cancelled

and that work results in the sale of

the property after the agreement is

cancelled, the agency agreement will

be legally binding and you may have to

pay the agent commission,” Lampen-

Smith says.

When a general or sole agency

agreement is cancelled your agent

must give you a list of people they

have introduced to the property. If you

subsequently sell to one of these people

through a new agent, the first agent

may still be entitled to a commission.

In theory, multiple representation

means the property will be seen by

a larger number of potential buyers,

so it has a greater chance of selling

at a higher price. However, the risk

in this arrangement is that because

no one agent is solely responsible for

marketing the property, they may

be less committed to selling it. By

contrast, a sole agency listing means

the agent is obligated to do their best to

sell the property.

clauses, and a list of agencies that use

them, visit www.reaa.govt.nz.

Grateful

for others’

generosity

Quite literally life-changing

is how former Brooklands resident Kathryn Jackson

describes the Red Cross hardship and storage grants they

received after the 2010 and 2011 Christchurch earthquakes.

Kathryn, her husband Andy, and their son Cam were living in

the now red-zoned northern Christchurch suburb and had just

received approval to extend their “dream home” when the

September 2010 earthquake hit.

As the weeks of chaos with no running water or amenities

progressed and their land was declared red-zoned, the

Jacksons received a storage grant that paid for a shipping

container to be placed on land they bought near Amberley.

They then built a small sleep-out – “an escape bolt-hole” – that

they lived in while their future home was constructed nearby.

Now happily settled in the Hurunui, the Jacksons will eternally

be grateful for the small financial difference New Zealand

Red Cross made to their lives, made possible by the generous

donations Red Cross received through its 2011 Canterbury

Earthquake Appeal.

The Jacksons’ story is one that rings true with thousands of

families who faced loss, hardship and life-altering circumstances

after the September 2010 and February 2011 earthquakes.

Immediately after the quakes struck, New Zealand Red Cross

established the Appeal and received more than $131 million

in donations from people, businesses and Red Cross societies

around the world.

Through those donations New Zealand Red Cross has

helped one in five Cantabrians with their recovery from the

earthquakes. As well as a wide range of grants to target specific

needs in the community, Red Cross regularly knocked on doors

across the city, provided well-being workshops and messaging

and worked closely with a range of specialist community

organisations to improve the lives of those who might have

otherwise gone unnoticed.

In collaboration with Star Media, Red Cross has launched a

suite of videos called “10 Good Stories” that highlights the

good work done through the greater Christchurch Earthquake

Recovery Programme between 2011 and 2016. You can watch

them at redcross.org.nz.

Former Brooklands red-zone residents Andy Cam and Kathryn Jackson have settled into their new home near Amberley.

Using coffee to promote preparedness

Think preparing for a disaster is boring? Having a cup of

coffee with the neighbours could be just as important

as storing water and food for three days. With Red

Cross providing free, barista-made coffee around

Christchurch suburbs, it’s easier than ever to connect

with your neighbours.

Knowing your neighbours and

being socially connected is just as

important as having an up-to-date

emergency kit,

New Zealand Red Cross Recovery Manager Michael

Donoghue explains.

“Those around you are more likely to provide practical

help or a listening ear during, and immediately after,

an emergency. Communities where people are better

connected socially recover more quickly from an event,

and Red Cross wants to help build and strengthen that

social connectedness.”

To help neighbours break the ice, Red Cross is touring

the suburbs with a coffee cart dubbed ‘Buzz’ and a

barbecue trailer. The cart and trailer are two of many

Red Cross projects under the ‘Here For Good’ banner

designed to enhance the city’s social connections

and resilience.

To find out more, help out or join us, visit

redcross.org.nz or call 0800 REDCROSS.

Red Cross helping regions

recover from Nov EQ

Kelly and Frannco Riella Fernandes enjoying the “mums and bubs” drop-in

centre in Kaikoura.

Seven months after the massive 7.8 magnitude

earthquake on 14 November 2016, New Zealand

Red Cross is working closely with the people

affected and assisting their recovery.

The $3.5 million raised through the Red Cross

2016 November Earthquake Appeal will all be

spent helping affected residents recover from

the disaster.

With help from the Rural Support Trust, Red Cross

staff and volunteers conducted a comprehensive

outreach programme across the earthquake-hit

regions of Marlborough, Kaikoura and Hurunui,

visiting every home to see how people were

getting on.

Findings from this door-knocking initiative have

helped shape the direction of the Red Cross

November 2016 Recovery programme.

This is a complex recovery.

Our teams discovered that

different communities face

their own unique issues.

“It’s important that we identify and address these

needs effectively instead of applying a one-sizefits-all

approach,” Red Cross Secretary General

Niamh Lawless says.

“For example, we are running drop-in centres

in Kaikoura for young parents and earthquakeaffected

residents, but found in places like

Seddon that providing free well-being workshops,

psychological first aid courses, and children’s

books with strong preparedness and anxiety

messaging is more relevant.”

The $1,000 Damaged Home Grants Red Cross

launched in December saw Red Cross receive

400 applications and distribute $341,000 to

affected residents.

During March Red Cross conducted a series of

recovery workshops with renowned Australian

disaster psychologist Dr Rob Gordon across the

regions. An estimated 200 people attended the six

community sessions where Dr Gordon to explain

the recovery process and provide practical tips to

aid each person’s recovery.
