SOCIAL MEDIA trends, tissue

sales and sick leave could be

used to help predict outbreaks of

infectious diseases and muster

the resources to deal with them.

The Ministry of Health is

looking at whether utilising

trends and other unconventional

data would help with detection,

and improving responses to

epidemics.

Christchurch health officials

are welcoming the research.

As part of the project, the

Ministry is looking at whether

Facebook or Twitter posts about

illnesses or symptoms could be

tracked to see if there is a trend

in a particular area.

It would also look at whether

school absentees, employee sick

leave, over-the-counter pharmacy

sales, tissue sales or Healthline

calls could be utilised.

Canterbury Medical Officer of

Health Alistair Humphrey said

the Canterbury District Health

Board already tracked trends using

Googleflu, which could be a

good predictor of flu needs.

It tracked whether people were

making flu-related searches on

Google, and where from.

“Research into more sophisticated

social media analysis is

welcome,” Dr Humphrey said.

David Jones, a director of Better

Health practices, which includes

the Linwood, Moorhouse

and Barrington medical centres,

said the idea had potential.

I HOPE for Maddie Collins and

her family’s sake Jane Laurie

does have $42 million in the

bank.

But I suspect not.

This week, reporter Gabrielle

Stuart paid Ms Laurie a visit.

She said she had dough and the

$1.5 million would be paid for

Maddie’s much-needed life saving

treatment in a United States

hospital.

Ms Laurie didn’t slam the

door or give the usual heave-ho

journos get when they sometimes

want to discuss a potentially

tricky subject.

Hopefully, if Ms Laurie has

the money she will front up with

her pledge. If she doesn’t have,

hopefully, she’ll have the heart to

front up on that one too, and let

Maddie’s family know her bank

account doesn’t hold that kind

of gold.

They probably know that

already but when your daughter

needs lifesaving treatment anything

is worth clinging onto.

There’s still lots to raise for

Maddie – a very worthy cause if

you’ve got a few dollars to spare.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw pioneer William Deans among

28 lost in the wreck of the Maria in Cook Strait on July 23,

1851. On July 24, 1983, New Zealand’s first “test-tube” twins

were born at Christchurch Hospital. On July 25, 1903, the

city council generated Christchurch’s first public electricity

from a generator driven by the municipal refuse destructor.

This eventually led to the formation of the Municipal

Electricity Department. On July 27, 1851, a storm wrecked

six ships in Lyttelton Harbour. On July 28, 1964, trees were

cut down in Rolleston Ave by the city council. Intense

public protest followed. On July 29, 1953, aviation pioneer

Richard W Pearse died in Christchurch. Pearse made one of

the world’s first powered flights on or about March 31, 1902,

in South Canterbury. He moved to Christchurch in 1921.

West End actor returns to city

One-man show

makes light of

deportation

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

BUILDING AN arts career on

London’s West End is a far cry

from reality for most – but not

for Christchurch performer Nic

Kyle.

Taken under Broadway star

Elaine Paige’s wing, Kyle, 30,

led a soaring four-year stint,

performing in

sell-out shows in

one of the biggest

commercial

theatre scenes in

the world.

Nic Kyle

But all came to

abrupt halt, when

the actor, who

grew up in Ilam, found himself

being deported.

Kyle was in the United

Kingdom for two years before

deciding to get a defacto visa.

“I was seeing an English girl

and we decided to go into a

partner defacto visa which in

hindsight was probably not a

good idea,” he said.

THe relationship broke up but

Kyle decided to keep the visa.

THe visa issue was flagged

when Kyle was being checked

through Gatwick Airport after a

short trip to Portugal.

“Getting deported was

probably the worse thing that

ever happened in my life . . .

they took my passport off me,

took my phone off me, locked

me in a holding cell,” he said.

Kyle was locked away

ON THE BRIGHT SIDE: Nic Kyle as King Arthur in The English Theatre Frankfurt’s production

of Spamalot. Right – Kyle with his girlfriend Sophie Schmidt. ​

from midnight to 9am in the

morning and given five days to

get out of London.

He took off to Germany,

landing the lead role in The

English Theatre Frankfurt’s

production of Spamalot before

heading home to Christchurch

where he has been for the past

month.

It was in Germany where he

met his girlfriend Canadian

Sophie Schmidt, a professional

football player who is a

midfielder for FFC Frankfurt in

the German national league.

Kyle said meeting Schmidt

was a complete coincidence

as both her club and The

English Theatre Frankfurt was

sponsored by the same bank.

“THe team always come to

the show every year and have a

mix and mingle with the cast

afterwards and we always

go to their game the week

afterwards,” he said.

Now he is back in

Christchurch, Kyle will make

light of getting kicked out of the

UK his original one-man show

Deported.

For the second element of

the show, he has reigned in city

performers Matt Hudson and

Jack Marshall to take part in

dark comedy Coffin.

Back in London Kyle

performed in the sell-out

premier on West End for the

show.

He was given the rights to

perform the show after writer

Elliott Langsdon found out he

was deported.

Kyle will be heading back

to Europe to travel with his

girlfriend before he decides

what to do next. “I am not

happy I got deported but it has

worked out really well . . . if I

hadn’t, would I had ever met

Sophie? Who knows?” he said.

Kyle’s career on West End

began after he sung for Paige

during her New Zealand

tour.

“I was going to move to

Melbourne and she was like

no you are talking s***. I am

going to help get you to London

. . . and she helped get me an

agent,” he said.

•Coffin and Deported will

be performed at Christ’s

College Old Boys’ Theatre

on Saturday and Sunday.

To book tickets, go to The

Court Theatre website.

Facebook, Twitter plan to track illness outbreaks

•From page 1

“Sourcing information that

helps is going to be potentially

useful.”

But he said the main issue

would be whether the information

had any validity.

CDHB board member

Andrew Dickerson said it was

worth further research.

But he said there could be a

risk of self diagnosis if taking

data from social media.

He said school absentee

numbers would be a really good

indicator.

Age Concern Canterbury chief

executive Simon Templeton said

the main benefit for the elderly

population would be to detect

influenza.

“We know it’s a killer.”

He said looking into

being able to use trends and

unconventional data was

wise.

The ministry is currently

running a survey on its website

asking people if they have

posted on social media about

themselves or family members’

illnesses.

In Brief

RUGBY INVESTIGATION

A Canterbury Rugby Football

Union investigation into the

actions of West Melton under-14.5s

rugby coach Amanda Tomlinson

at a match this month has been put

on hold while police investigate. A

complaint was made alleging she

verbally and physically abused a

young Lincoln Rugby Club player

after the match on July 8. Senior

Sergeant Peter Stills said yesterday

police were still investigating the

incident. The CRFU investigation

into the complaint has been put on

hold, but a separate investigation

into an altercation between players

during the game that day may still

go ahead.

NEW PARKING RULES

A new bylaw under development

may ban parking on grass berms,

cultivated areas and gardens. City

council head of strategic policy

Helen Beaumont said, under the

current rules, enforcement officers

can fine people for parking on

berms, but only where there were

‘no parking’ signs, or if the berm

was damaged. However, under the

proposed new Traffic and Parking

Bylaw, parking on all berms would

be prohibited. The changes would

go out for public consultation.

•Roadside vehicle sale ban, p6

HAREWOOD BOTTLE STORE

Residents have been successful in

their fight to stop a liquor store

opening in Harewood. The controversial

application by Samarth

Rajeshkumar Limbachiya to open

a liquor store at 2a and 2b Trafford

St has been declined by the city

council’s district licensing committee.

In its report, the committee

said granting the licence would be

detrimental to the neighbourhood

so the application was declined.

WOOLSTON CUT DREDGING

A $2.3 million project to dredge

the Woolston Cut will begin

in October. City council land

drainage manager Keith Davison

said the cut was full of silt and

liquefaction. It had not been

dredged since it was built in the

1980s to prevent flooding in the

lower Heathcote River area.

Steeple climbs higher

• By Bridget Rutherford

AN 8.4m replica of Christ

Church Cathedral’s steeple will

be rolled around the city to

show people how the real thing

could be rebuilt like an Amish

‘barn raising’.

Marcus Brandt, a master carpenter

from the United States,

has been building the replica

out of timber at Ara Institute of

Canterbury’s trade campus.

Students and Restore Christ

Church Cathedral Group members

are helping.

It is similar to a small scale

version Mr Brandt built after

hatching a plan to rebuild the

steeple in pieces out of timber,

before placing stone on the outside

so it looks the same.

The pre-fabricated timber

pieces would be built then

nestled inside one another like

a telescope, before being raised

up using winding devices, ropes

and people power.

Mr Brandt said the steeple

could be restored separately to

the rest of the building.

He restores historic stone and

timber buildings in the US, said

the method was used by Amish

communities to raise barns and

churches.

By the end of the week, the

SPORTS

BRAS

finished replica will be taken by

trailer to places such as Margaret

Mahy Family Playground

and the Transitional Cathedral.

People would be able to help

raise the replica using rope and

winding devices to pull the

steeple up and into place.

Mr Brandt said it was important

everyone knew about the

method, before the Anglican

Diocese’s synod voted on the

Cathedral’s future in September.

“I want to encourage the

synod it’s not just a building

project. This is potentially a tremendous

outreach programme

that really wouldn’t take much,”

he said.

“We can repair this. If New

Zealand loses its cultural heritage,

we’re all the poorer.”

Mr Brandt said he wanted to

help because it matched his skill

set and experience. He is part of

the Timber Framers Guild, an

educational organisation based

in the US.

He said members were keen to

assist with the project.

It meant she might finally get a

She said her Shirley home was

She hoped the double-glazing

what’s the catch,” she said.

She had looked at doubleglazing

several years ago, but said

she couldn’t afford the $12,000-

$15,000 price she was quoted.

She said she had gone to the

show looking for ways to heat her

so the prize was perfectly-timed.

about leaving heaters on all the

Woman still pledges to donate $1.5m

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A WOMAN who said she would

give $1.5 million for potential

life saving treatment to teenager

Maddie Collins is adamant she

will honour her pledge.

Jane Laurie spoke to The Star

at her modest rural Canterbury

home this week, and said: “It’ll

get through to them.”

But Maddie’s mother, Sarah

Manson Collins, is resigned to

the fact the money will never

arrive after several weeks of

“empty promises”.

The saga with Ms Laurie

began in early June when she

contacted Mrs Manson Collins

saying she had come into a $42

million inheritance and wanted

to donate $1.5 million to help

Maddie.

The 13-year-old St Margaret’s

College student has kidney

failure with potentially lifethreatening

complications, and

her family have been trying to

raise more than $700,000 to get

her a transplant in the United

States.

Her condition and fundraising

efforts have received much

publicity.

Last week The Star revealed the

$1.5 million pledge was probably

bogus, devastating the family

inheritance, says she will still give $1,5 million to help sick

teenager Maddie Collins (right). PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

when they are struggling to raise

the money needed to help their

daughter.

Mrs Manson Collins said Ms

Laurie had been convincing,

visiting the family home and

then regularly messaging to say

the money was on its way.

But, as time went by, they

realised the money would never

arrive.

However, on Tuesday Ms

Laurie told The Star the Manson

Collins family had nothing to be

concerned about. Her bank was

causing the delay, she said.

“I’ll get some paperwork back

and the first lot should go right

through to them. The bank just

can’t pay that much at one time,”

she said.

Ms Laurie said she was

meeting with the bank and her

lawyer this week. However,

when The Star phoned Ms Laurie

yesterday the number she gave

the newspaper did not work.

When asked if she could show

The Star any paperwork from the

bank or the lawyer, she replied

she didn’t have any.

Ms Laurie could not remember

the lawyer’s name or what firm

he worked for.

The inheritance had been left

to her nine months ago by a

childhood friend called Marcus.

He had lived in the United

Kingdom where he established

several successful businesses, but

had moved back to Christchurch

six or seven years ago.

“I wanted to give it (money)

away because it’s far too much,”

she said.

She said she saw Maddie’s

plight and fundraising articles in

the news media and approached

the family. She also planned

to donate money to other sick

children.

Mrs Manson Collins said

yesterday she was worried other

families would be put through

the same thing her family had.

“I don’t think she’s realised the

devastation she has caused this

family. It’s like having the rug

pulled out from under our feet,

because we were really hoping

this would mean Maddie could

get the transplant and go back to

school and be able to be a normal

teenager,” she said.

If Ms Laurie kept messaging

her, she planned to put an official

complaint in to police.

About $170,00 has already

been raised through fundraisers

and donations to help Maddie

get a kidney replacement at

the John Hopkins Hospital in

Baltimore, United States.

The treatment offered there

would make it more likely

Maddie’s body would accept a

donated kidney, even if it was not

a perfect match.

Manji’s MP

campaign

set to launch

• By Bridget Rutherford

CITY COUNCILLOR Raf Manji

will launch his bid to become an

MP tomorrow.

The former investment banker

is standing as a independent in

the Ilam electorate.

He will come up against National’s

Gerry Brownlee, who has

held the seat since

1996, Labour’s

Anthony Rimell

and David Lee, of

the Green Party.

Student Volunteer

Army founder

Raf Manji

Sam Johnson

will introduce Cr

Manji, as he did for his first city

council campaign in 2013.

Cr Manji said the themes of his

political campaign launch would

be similar to that of his council

campaign – finance, strategy and

community.

“I’m going to be talking about

my vision for the city and the key

issues we have in Ilam.”

The launch will be held at Mona

Vale at 10am.

If elected, he would step down

as councillor. A by-election would

cost $65,000 to replace him.

Move to ban roadside vehicle sales

• By Bridget Rutherford

SELLING YOUR vehicle on the

side of the road could soon be

illegal.

The city council is developing

a new Traffic and Parking Bylaw

to replace the current rules,

and wants to add a new clause

prohibiting the practice.

Under the new clause, a

person must not stop, stand or

park a vehicle on any road or

parking place to

offer it for sale,

unless it was being

used for day-today

travel.

City council

Helen

Beaumont

head of strategic

policy Helen

Beaumont said on

some streets, such as Cranford

St, it created hazards and

distractions.

“Drivers have been seen

making risky manoeuvres, such

as U-turns, in order to get a

better view or to park alongside

the cars for sale.”

She said some car sales

businesses had been using

adjoining on-street parks as part

of their forecourts.

The city council would

consider the draft bylaw early

next month, with consultation

The Regulatory Performance

Committee yesterday endorsed

the plan for public consultation.

One woman spoken to by The

Star, who declined to be named,

had parked a vehicle on Main

window.

She did not believe it created

a hazard, as people did risky

manoeuvres and U-turns

everywhere.

“That comes down to

someone’s driving really.”

The woman said she had listed

the vehicle on Trade Me as well,

She said it would likely be

difficult to enforce and there

could be a designated space

where vehicles could be parked

to sell.

AA senior policy analyst Mark

Stockdale said if implemented,

the city council should focus its

enforcement on the busy streets

where there was a risk.

“Car sales businesses

shouldn’t be using public parks

to sell cars for profit.”

Car dealer escapes conviction

• By Kurt Bayer

A CHRISTCHURCH car dealer

who punched a panel beater in

the aftermath of a crash that

wrote off a car he had just sold,

has avoided a conviction today

because of the work he does in

the community.

Nigel Terrance William

Thompson (right) of city car

dealership Nigel Thompson

Motor Company was driving a

car to its final compliance test

when a vehicle pulled out of a

St Asaph St panel shop at about

9.30am on January 13, this year,

and hit him.

Insurers would later deem

Thompson’s vehicle so badly

damaged it was a write-off.

A furious Thompson, a

43-year-old who has previous

convictions for fraud, dating

back 15 years, got out of the car.

A heated verbal argument

ensued and several panel shop

workers came out of the workshop

to see what was going on.

One of the men told Thompson

to “calm down, c***”.

Thompson, who pleaded

guilty to assault at the district

court, admitted punching the

man twice in the head.

The pair fell into a car, causing

$900 in damage to its door.

At court yesterday, through

his defence counsel Jonathan

Eaton QC, he was granted

a discharge without conviction.

Thompson, the court heard,

felt surrounded and intimidated

by the crowd.

When the complainant

phoned the police to report the

assault, Mr Eaton said the man

admitted he shouldn’t have used

such offensive language towards

Thompson.

The complainant suffered a

cut to his nose and two large

lumps on his forehead. Thompson

received a black eye.

Mr Eaton said in spite of

Thompson’s substantial fraud

offending, for which he served

jail time, the offending was out

of character.

Thompson later admitted it

was a “stupid and inappropriate”

response to a situation where

independent witnesses identified

him as the aggressor.

After his release from prison

in 2004, he vowed to never to

return to a courtroom again as a

defendant.

The Salisbury Street Foundation,

a privately-run residential

facility that helps prison parolees

reintegrate into the community,

helped Thompson turn his

life around.

Thompson has gone on to

establish a successful car dealership

in Christchurch.

He has also been an SSF board

member since 2013 and does

youth mentoring with other

organisations.

Mr Eaton argued a conviction

would mean Thompson would

have to give up his valuable

mentoring roles and work he

does in the community. It could

also affect his biannual trips to

Japan to buy cars.

Judge Brian Callaghan said

the incident was clearly a “fall

from grace” for Thompson.

But he was satisfied the direct,

and indirect, consequences of a

conviction would outweigh the

seriousness of the incident and

that a discharge without conviction

could be entered.

The judge ordered Thompson

pay $948 in reparation for the

damage to the car door, and

a further $1000 as emotional

harm compensation to the complainant.

DNA could

identify

potential

child abductor

• By Andrew King

DNA EVIDENCE could be

the key to finding a man who

attempted to abduct a young girl

from a Governors Bay car park.

Police have taken fingernail

clippings from the victim in an

effort to find evidence of her attacker,

the victim’s mother told

The Star.

The samples will then be

checked against the National

DNA Profile Databank to see if

there is a match.

The girl fought off her attacker,

which means she could have evidence

underneath her fingernails

that could identify her attacker.

On June 15 she was with friends

playing hide and seek in the

Governors Bay Hotel gardens

when she slipped down a hill and

landed in the hotel car park.

A man, described as a European

in a red vehicle possibly a sedan,

sped into the car park at about

4.20pm.

The offender got out of his vehicle

and grabbed her before trying

to drag her into the car before she

fought him off.

Banks Peninsula’s volcanic soil

They may be small,

but Banks Peninsula

vineyards are starting

to show they can

match it with the

big players. Bridget

Rutherford reports

TUCKED INTO the hillside in

Charteris Bay is a little vineyard

– a vineyard that’s making a

name for itself.

But it’s not the only one.

What started as a hobby has

turned into success for Neil

and Jill Pattinson, with their

vineyard Whistling Buoy taking

out the top award at this year’s

Wines of Canterbury awards.

Their Whistling Buoy Kokolo

Pinot Noir 2015 won the game

trophy and a gold medal.

It was later named champion

wine.

Its Kokolo Chardonnay 2015

and Kokolo Pinot Noir 2016 also

earned bronze medals.

Dr Pattinson, who is president

of Wines of Canterbury, said

there are four main vineyards

that sit within the craters of

Lyttelton and Akaroa harbours –

and all were proving their worth.

He said Banks Peninsula was

an emerging sub-wine region.

But he said it was a given the

area should produce nice wines

– the very earliest plantings in

New Zealand were in Akaroa in

1840 when the French settlers

arrived.

“What’s unique about Banks

Peninsula is the soils, the aspect,

particularly north-facing

slopes and basically being close

to large bodies of water being

Akaroa and Lyttelton harbours,

which help mitigate the ultraextremes.”

He said the sea air didn’t seem

to have any impact on the wine

and they rarely suffered frosts.

Akaroa’s Meniscus Wines had

success at the same awards.

For the second year in a row,

its 2015 pinot noir won the best

pairing wine with lamb and got a

silver medal. Its 2016 riesling and

2016 pinot noir also got bronze

medals.

Owner David Epstein said they

were thrilled, especially with the

lamb trophy.

He said Banks Peninsula wines

had certain characteristics that

were starting to be recognised.

“It just shows there must be

something special in the terroir

here in the ground that is very

good for the grapes and the

growth,” he said.

The volcanic soil that exists

here from years back is giving a

special character.”

They produce pinot noir,

riesling and pinot gris from the

vines on the 2.4ha block which

sits on the south edge of Akaroa.

They make between 4000-6000

bottles each year.

Mr Epstein said all the grapes

are picked by hand before being

sent to Waipara to be produced.

makes for great winemaking

He and his wife Gay bought

the vineyard, formerly known

as Vanstone Estate, and Crater

Rim, at the end of 2008 and

moved over from Australia.

Previously, it was owned by

Akaroa businessman Graham

Vanstone, who disappeared

without a trace in September

1999, before his first vintage was

picked.

After his disappearance, Mr

Vanstone’s family rallied to

produce Vanstone Estate’s wine

before leasing the vineyard. They

then sold to the Epsteins.

Mr Vanstone was never found.

Police say his missing person file

has been referred to the coroner,

who will make a ruling on his

death.

“It’s just one of the mysteries of

SPECTACULAR:

At Whistling

Buoy, sheep

are used to

help maintain

the grass and

leaves, while

Meniscus Wines

looks out over

Akaroa Harbour.

Akaroa,” Mr Epstein said.

The Epsteins also run a tasting

lounge for their wines on Rue

Lavaud, but come October, they

will open it on site at Meniscus.

He hoped Banks Peninsula

would become recognised as a

fine wine growing area.

The Pattinsons planted grapes

into their 2023 sq m Charteris

Bay property in the early 2000s.

They went for the pinot noir

vines to match the clay-based

soil.

The name, Whistling Buoy,

was derived from the marker

buoy that used to direct vessels

into Lyttelton Harbour.

Dr Pattinson said originally it

was a hobby, but when they produced

their first vintage in 2005

and 2006, they knew they were

onto something.

So when a neighbouring property,

Kokolo, came up for sale at

Teddington about four and a half

years ago, they decided to buy it.

The 4ha site was already planted

with pinot noir, chardonnay,

and pinot meunier grapes, which

produced wine that was exported

to Japanese restaurant chains.

Dr Pattinson said they ripped

out the pinot meunier vines to

focus on the other two.

The pinot noir grapes at

Kokolo are also used to produce

Whistling Buoy’s rose.

All the grapes are sent to Greystone

Wines in Waipara to be

produced, but Dr Pattinson said

they had a lot of input into the

winemaking process.

Because of the sloping hills

the vines are planted on, and the

small distance between each,

everything is done by hand –

with a little aid.

Their next door neighbour,

Speaker of the House David

Carter, often brought his sheep

into the vineyard during leaf

plucking to maintain the grass

and leaves.

Whistling Buoy viticulturist

Cliff Wood is into his fourth

season at Whistling Buoy. Last

week, he was out pruning and

tying down the vines before they

begin to grow again.

“It’s pretty labour intensive.”

Dr Pattinson said they knew

the 2015 pinot noir had all the

right elements – warm weather,

low disease pressure, good

vineyard management and good

fruit.

“This particular wine’s had 10

months on oak and there’s new

oak in that not just old oak.”

But this year they weren’t so

lucky.

They didn’t harvest because

it was too wet for the grapes to

ripen.

“So in the end, we just had to

walk away from it, which is quite

a big hit.”

But it won’t hamper the wine

stocks at supermarkets and local

restaurants.

“We’ve got the 2015 and the

2016 has just been released, so

we’ve still got plenty of wine.

I’d need to sell three cases of

wine a day to sell what we produce.”

Listening key to solving Māori crime

The Star continues its

series on the work police

in Canterbury are doing

on crime prevention,

heading off trouble before

it starts. Gabrielle Stuart

reports on the work police

are doing with Maori

IN THE past year, Hirone

Waretini and his team have had

to come to terms with something

difficult – failure.

Five years ago, police launched

a national strategy, Turning of

the Tide. The goal was to turn

around the high numbers of

Māori who were involved in

crime and road crashes, and the

high numbers of Māori becoming

victims of them.

But it hasn’t worked.

As Canterbury Police Māori,

Pacific and Ethnic Services district

manager, Inspector Waretini

has those numbers always on

his mind.

At last count, eight per cent

of Christchurch residents were

Māori – yet Māori made up

about 20 per cent of the people

apprehended by police, he said.

More than half of New Zealand’s

prison population is Māori

– 51 per cent.

GREETING: Canterbury District Commander John Price greets Ngahuia Ngata, while Ngā Maata

Waka chief executive Norm Dewes looks on. Canterbury police are working together with local

rūnanga to try to reduce high Māori crime statistics.

A six-year national strategy

Turning The Tide was launched

in 2012, timed to finish in 2018.

It aimed to cut the number of

Māori first-time offenders by 10

per cent, cut repeat offenders and

repeat victims of crime by 20 per

cent, reduce Māori apprehensions,

and reduce the number of

Maori killed or seriously injured

in road crashes by 20 per cent. It

also aimed to increase trust and

confidence in police within the

Māori community.

But a review of progress on

the strategy last year found there

had been no change in the first

time offender rates, an increase

in repeat offenders, and trust and

confidence in police within the

Māori community had dipped.

There were small improvements

– a reduction in apprehensions

of Māori youth, and the

number of deaths in crashes

dropped by three per cent – but

overall it fell well short of the

goals.

“We need to look at different

ways of doing things, because,

if I’m being honest, everything

we’ve tried to do to change

that hasn’t worked,” Inspector

Waretini said.

“Some nights I’ll sit with my

kids, when we’re warm and

everyone’s home safe, knowing

there are a lot of kids out there

that aren’t. That women out there

are being victimised by their

partners, that men are in the grip

of meth or alcohol, and can’t find

a way out,” he said.

To truly turn the tide, police

had to be willing to do things

differently, he said.

When he began working as

young police officer 21 years ago,

he said seeing a criminal locked

up had felt like a victory.

“We were the good guys, they

were the bad guys, and it was

our job to protect the good

people from the bad people,” he

said.

But over the years, he had seen

that approach did not always

work to prevent crime long-term,

he said.

The research tell us that when

people appear in court, whether

they have a community-based

sentence or prison, that starts a

cycle that is really hard to get out

of,” he said.

‘To make a change, we need to work in partnership’

•From page 10

A long-term solution began

with children, he said.

Many Christchurch children

were starting life disadvantaged,

he said, and if that could be

changed, he believed it would go

a long way.

“How can a child born today,

by the age of 25, be free of family

harm and of sexual abuse, live in

a healthy, secure environment,

have good mental health, have at

least NCEA Level 2 and a driver

licence,” he said.

That took a long time and the

help from the community to turn

around, he said.

And that was where the team

had seen victories.

Many programmes they have

worked with iwi and community

partners to develop have received

Government funding in the

past year – allowing them to do

more targeted work with people

like high-risk youth, children of

prisoners, and young people who

could not get a driver licence.

A string of convictions for

something like driving without

a licence could sometimes stem

from a simple problem, Inspector

Waretini said – he had come

across young people who hadn’t

got their driver licence because

they struggled to read.

CHANGE: Inspector Hirone Waretini and his team are working alongside Canterbury iwi to find

new ways to reduce crime and keep the community safe.

One of the biggest victories,

he said, had been building better

relationships between police and

the community.

He said there was now open

communication, and police were

regularly welcomed onto Canterbury

marae.

“Good relationships take a long

time, and they take commitment

and listening. Being married will

teach you that,” he said.

He said his team could be accused

of being “all hui, no do-ey”,

because so much of their work

was talk.

But he said even a conversation

over a cup of tea was important.

“A cuppa tea is like a job interview.

They’re sizing you up and

deciding if you’re someone they

can trust,” he said.

Senior Constable Jeff Martin

has seen it with a fresh perspective,

as he joined the team just

four months ago.

He had been impressed by

the things he had seen – like a

recent session at the marae-based

Rangatahi Court, where young

The Star

offenders were being sentenced.

The differences to the district

court in the central city were

subtle, but important, he said –

the young offenders stood and

gave a mihi, rather than standing

silent behind a sheet of glass, and

families were included in the

process rather than kept at the

back.

There was a sense of respect

there, and accountability to the

community, he said.

He has worked as a police

officer for 27 years, much of it

based in small communities like

Huntly and Cheviot, and most

recently on the beat at Cathedral

Square.

Everything he learned taught

him building trust and strong

relationships was vital to making

a change, he said.

Although the team had not

yet seen the changes they were

hoping for, they would not stop

working until they did, he said.

“We need to recognise we can’t

do this on our own. With the local

rūnanga we share many common

values, but for too long our

approach has been that we know

what the problems are, we know

what the solutions are, this is how

we will do it. To make a change,

we need to work in partnership,

and really listen,” he said.

Neil Pattinson

Good results for winemaker’s

Neil Pattinson and his wife Jill planted grapes on their

Charteris Bay property to see if they could make nice

wine. Now, more than 10 years on, Bridget Rutherford

speaks to him about producing award-winning wines

under the Whistling Buoy label

Whistling Buoy’s 2015 pinot

noir was named champion wine

at the Wines of Canterbury

awards. Were you expecting it?

Of course (laughs). I’m very

pleasantly surprised, we knew it

was a good wine. I was absolutely

thrilled we got a gold medal,

then actually won best match

with game so, to me, that was

reward enough. But to actually

then be named champion wine

of the competition at the very

end, that’s just the icing on the

cake.

What do you think made this

wine so good?

I think it’s a vintage, so it was a

really good year and the disease

pressure was relatively low. It was

also warm so it had all the right

elements. Obviously, you’ve still

got to put in a lot of viticulture

to manage the site. You’ve got to

get good air flow and good light

penetration. So I think it was

good vineyard management, it

was a good vintage, and then

taking really good fruit and

turning it into really exquisite pinot

noir. It’s all the elements that

make a really good wine. Our

winemaking is done up at Greystone

in Waipara, so we don’t

do it on site. So at harvest point,

it’s shipped up to Greystone. But

we do have lots of input on the

style we want and the amount of

oak and oak exposure and that

comes to the sorting of the fruit

and the whole process. It’s not

hands-off. This particular wine

has had 10 months on oak and

there’s new oak in that not just

old oak.

It’s the second year a wine

from Banks Peninsula has

taken out the award, isn’t it?

We got second last year.

Meniscus Wines in Akaroa were

the top pinot noir. The three top

pinot noirs got the top three in

that category – there was Meniscus,

Tussock Hill and ourselves.

Ours was the top chardonnay

last year. I think that’s the thing

about the peninsula, because

it’s on clay-based soil and pinot

noir does particularly well and

chardonnay grape does as well. If

you’re going to pick wine varieties

Banks Peninsula exemplifies,

it would be pinot noir, pinot gris

and chardonnay.

And being so close to the

water in Lyttelton Harbour, do

you still get any frosts?

We do right in the middle

of winter, but not during the

important growing season or the

early start to the year. In places

like Waipara and central plains,

you’ve got to have frost protection

and we don’t have to bother

with that. We have planted in

that French-style, the spaces

between vines and rows are quite

small. So it does mean it’s very

hard to mechanise and also we’re

on sloping sites, everything’s

done by hand. So part of that

is you’re in the vineyard all the

time, you’re constantly monitoring,

you’re constantly tuning, so

it’s a bit labour intensive, but it

means that labour of love transforms

into really good quality

fruit.

What were you doing before

you decided to put grapes in?

I’m a clinical biochemist by

training, so I worked at the

hospital for about 14 years. Ivan

Donaldson was starting up

Pegasus Bay at the time, I also

worked with a gastroenterologist

– Bruce Chapman – and they

own Terrace Edge; they put in

some olives and grapes later on.

So every medical conference

you go to – a lot are overseas

in beautiful places like France,

SUCCESS: Whistling Buoy owner Neil Pattinson says they were thrilled with their honours at the

Wines of Canterbury awards.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Switzerland and Germany – then

obviously part in parcel with

that are the evening dinners and

concerts and, of course, they’re

all served with beautiful wine.

You couldn’t not have an interest

in wine.

When did you decide to put

in grapes?

We had about 2ha of land at

Charteris Bay and we had sheep.

We’d gone through the typical

lifestyle block, so we started with

sheep, then we had a goat, and

our daughter had a pony. Then I

thought, why not put vines in?

Did you ever think you would

get to this point where you have

award-winning wines?

Yes and no. The initial reality

was just: Can we grow some

good grapes and produce good

wine, mainly for our own

consumption and friends and

family? But certainly, when

you produce wine you want

it to be really good, you don’t

want people thinking, oh, Neil’s

bringing out his home brew

again. I didn’t want to make

rubbish wine, we did at that

time contract a really good

winemaker – Grant Whelan

from Kaituna Valley. So

basically, it was good grapes and

a really good winemaker and the

rest is history.

What do your kids do?

Tony is in Coolangatta (Gold

Coast). He’s just set up a pizzeria.

He’s been over there for six or

seven years. He started off in

Tasmania with a restaurant

called Restaurant Red, then

he came to Brisbane and met

his partner and now they’re in

Coolangatta. They are going to

have our wine at the restaurant.

Our daughter Kate is trained

as a teacher, and she’s working

at Manuwera Institute of

Technology as a departmental

manager. And our other son

Chris is a winemaker. He’s now

working for Sherwood Estate

in Waipara, I’m wanting him to

take charge of the half acre.

labour of love

So before you turned your

focus to Whistling Buoy,

where else had you been

working?

After the hospital, I joined

a biotechnology company

called Life Technologies,

then I became chief executive

of Canterbury Scientific. I

resigned from that a year

ago to focus on building the

brand and establishing a sales

network for Whistling Buoy.

But I chair the board of a start

up biotech company called

AuramerBio out of Victoria

University. And I’ve been

doing some consulting work

at Canterbury University for

the Canterbury Development

Corp. I’m just about to start a

job at ChristchurchNZ as its

senior advisor of innovation

and commercialisation.

You mentioned everything

is done by hand. Do you

have a bit of help to pick the

grapes?

It’s a social occasion. Here

at Kokolo, the picking, it’s

three consecutive days. We

have about 25 people and we

fill about 10 big 400kg bins.

We have a truck that comes

out and they get taken out that

night. After we sit outside, talk,

eat and drink – it’s a lot of fun.

I hear your wife Jill does a

lot of maintenance around

here?

She has her own mower,

which she loves to sit upon,

she gets upset if I jump on

the mower from time to time.

But we do use sheep up on

the vineyard, I do use the

mulching mower, but we have

sheep as well. David Carter,

our next-door neighbour,

brings his sheep in.

Do the sheep damage the

vines at all?

You’ve got to be careful.

There’s nothing on the vines

at the moment so they’ll just

chew up the grass. But during

the season, you don’t want

them on bud set, the only time

you really bring them in is

when you want to leaf pluck

so when you’ve got fruit set,

but the berries are really hard

and green. The leaves are

green they will probably

have a crack at one or two

bunches but they’ll think

that’s rubbish.

Do you hope to

expand Whistling

Buoy?

If we can successfully

establish the brand

and get a really good

route to market

then, yes, it would

certainly be quite

nice to build it. But

there’s a balance

there, too, you don’t

want to be so large you lose

your focus. Being boutique is

good.

Another rainy day

for saturated city

GET THOSE umbrellas out

again, another rainy day is on the

way for the city.

But the downpour is not expected

to reach the same levels

that flooded homes and caused a

state of emergency at the weekend,

MetService meteorologist

April Clark said.

Showers are due to begin later

this morning and will continue

throughout the rest of the day,

Ms Clark said.

“Once it comes in, it’ll be persistent

but it is not going to be as

heavy.”

MetService is keeping an eye

on the rain and is ready to put

a weather watch in place if that

changes.

Ms Clark said before

MetServive put a heavy rain

warning in place, the weather

system has to meet a criteria,

which this one does not look like

it will meet.

The city council is keeping a

wary eye on the weather.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel

said: “The forecast of further

rain from (today) . . . means the

situation is still changeable, but

we are working hard to minimise

any impacts by clearing flood

debris from rivers, sumps and

stormwater grates, and keeping

pumps deployed in Southshore

and Flockton.”

Christchurch is expected to

miss snow again. The low is only

expected to bring snow down to

400m in Canterbury on Friday,

Ms Clark said.

“(Today’s) really the worst day

and it’s an easing trend from

there,” she said.

Showers will become patchy

tomorrow, bringing a chilly but

relatively clear Saturday and a

fine Sunday.

The forecast next week is for

rain from Tuesday to Friday.

Women get into construction

IT WAS a rough end to the

school holidays for many in

Christchurch with homes,

businesses and streets under

water, or very close to it.

Sometimes it seems like our

city just can’t catch a break. But,

on the upside, we’ve got our

response down to a fine art.

The mayor declared a state of

emergency early; Civil Defence

acted quickly and decisively to

keep people and property out of

harm’s way; and the New Zealand

Defence Force, volunteers and

a whole host of other agencies

swung into action.

Those I’ve spoken to say last

week’s flooding was the worst in

decades and, unfortunately,

more rain is forecast for today.

While it’s not expected to be as

heavy, now’s a good time to replenish

the emergency kit, revise

your household evacuation plan

and check in with friends and

family.

The latest Greater Christchurch

Dashboard — Women in Construction

contains some really

positive news for Christchurch

and the rebuild/regeneration

process.

The number of women working

in both residential and

non-residential construction in

Canterbury has increased from

3400 in March 2010 to 7600 in

March 2017 — a 124 per cent

increase. More and more women

are embracing rebuild opportunities

by entering and succeeding

in this traditionally maledominated

industry. Women

can bring a fresh perspective,

Nicky Wagner

strengthen customer relations,

add diversity and improve business

performance.

The Stronger Christchurch

Infrastructure Rebuild Team,

which was responsible for

repairing Christchurch’s quakedamaged

infrastructure, proactively

encouraged women into

its workforce through the SCIRT

Women in Construction working

group. Between 2014 and 2015,

the number of women in crew

roles at SCIRT doubled from six

to 12 per cent.

With a skills shortage around

the country, it’s great to see more

women in construction — it

provides new opportunities for

women and their families, and it

makes good business sense, benefitting

Christchurch and New

Zealand economically.

•Nicky Wagner is Minister

supporting Greater Christchurch

Regeneration

•Megan Woods and Lianne

Dalziel, page 18

We said:

Cameras and video

technology are being

investigated to accurately

count the number of red

light runners in the city.

You said:

Shaun Evans – They need to

change how the lights actually

filter the traffic. Most intersections

don’t even have a proper

right-turn filter. Honestly, I

can navigate my way through

London easier than Christchurch

and that’s a city with double the

population of NZ.

Ashleigh Bearman – Don’t

waste money installing cameras

to see if the problem “is that

bad.” It only takes one car running

a red light for potential

catastrophic results. Why not put

that money into a decent system

to catch the offenders.

Tony Winkworth Howell

– I see it all day, every day. The

sooner the cameras come in the

better. We could set up deck

chairs at intersections and cheer

each time the camera catches one.

Riccardo Ingrosso – Red

light-running is really bad. Bring

on the cameras.

Jamie Dermerm – It’s a

nightmare here in Christchurch.

Majority of drivers really have no

idea how to use roundabouts and

traffic lights.

Investing in education

VISITING LOCAL schools is one

of the things I love most about

my job.

Not only do you meet fantastic

parents, children and staff, but you

also get you a really good feel for

what is happening in local communities

and neighbourhoods.

Sometimes I’m also inspired

about the opportunities being

offered to our children. Education

is vital to making sure that all our

kids can achieve their potential.

The power of education to

transform lives has been embedded

in Labour’s heart since the

1930s.

The first Labour Government

not only built the welfare state

and houses; they also built an

education system that was available

to everyone regardless of

their bank balance. Universal and

free education was central to our

plan for the future.

Fast forward to today, and I am

concerned that the commitment

to free education is slipping away.

There is no doubt that parents

are being asked to stump up

for more and more of the costs

of education. Early Childhood

Education fees have risen by an

average of 25 per cent under National,

while so called voluntary

school donations have risen by 50

per cent. Tertiary fees are up over

40 per cent and student debt has

topped $16 billion.

This is why we have chosen to

invest in education rather than

dishing out $400 million in tax

cuts for the top ten percent of

earners.

We will invest an extra $4 billion

over four years to deliver a

modern education system. We

will ensure that schooling is

genuinely free by offering an extra

$150 per student to state and state

integrated schools that don’t ask

parents for donations.

By investing in education, the

next generation of Kiwis will be

better qualified and ready to take

on the rapidly changing world.

They will be equipped to help

build a better New Zealand.

•Megan Woods is Labour’s

Canterbury spokeswoman

Face up to more flooding

MY HEART goes out to those

whose homes were flooded on

the weekend.

I remember only too well in

2014 how vulnerable people felt

in the wake of two so-called “one

in 100-year” events that swamped

the Flockton area twice in a matter

of weeks, along with Heathcote

Valley and the lower reaches

of the Heathcote River.

This weekend was a reminder

that we haven’t fully recovered

from the earthquakes and there

is still much to be done. It’s true

that our Land Drainage Recovery

Programme involves hundreds of

millions of dollars, and it involves

a lot of planning and engineering

capacity both in terms of holding

back stormwater from the river

at peak flows and pumping water

away from the streets and properties

that line the river.

More importantly it involves

residents, as they want to be

involved in planning drainage

management.

I’m afraid we have to face up to

the reality that these events will

continue to increase in frequency

and severity. That’s what climate

change means and we are a

coastal city that has built in the

natural floodplains of our rivers.

The quake has also created a

particular vulnerability along the

Lianne Dalziel

eastern side of the estuary, with

the removal of red zone houses in

Southshore and a significant drop

in the land in South Brighton. We

have already asked council staff

to provide options for resolving

some of these issues and we are

expecting that report very soon.

The ‘red zoning’ along the

Avon River after the earthquakes

has actually saved us from having

to address those issues along the

Avon and in Brooklands. This

has also opened up new opportunities

for wetlands which can not

only provide more space for the

rivers, it can help clean stormwater

before entering the river.

The Heathcote River presents

a far greater challenge. Once the

ponding areas for storage are

completed in the upper reaches,

we will have capacity to store

800,000 cu m of stormwater, and

that will really help.

We will continue to work

through all the issues with the

communities that live in these

flood prone areas so good decisions

can be made.

As a footnote, I have just attended

the Local Government

New Zealand Conference and

was pleased that Christchurch

has been chosen to host next

year’s conference.

It not only means over 600

delegates coming to our city, it’s a

great opportunity to debate some

of the lessons learned from our

experience and the challenges we

all have to face.

For all your blind repair and cleaning requirements

The Blind Care Company has been

cleaning and repairing the region’s blinds

for over 60 years. Those six decades

have seen changes in both fashion and

technology. Styles have ranged from

festooned fabric swags to straightforward

and still popular holland roller blinds,

from vertical to horizontal slat systems,

and in every colour or pattern popular

since the 1960s.

Whatever your style, the Blind Care

Company has the expertise to keep your

window treatments looking fresh and

working efficiently. Using only ecofriendly

chemicals, the build-up of dirt,

dust, grease, nicotine and smoke residue

can be removed so that your blinds

smell fresh and are restored to their

original glory. The company can repair

blinds also, having a huge range of parts

in stock. And if you want something

completely new, a great range of blinds is

available for purchase.

The company prides itself on efficient

service, providing a fast turn-around,

with most work taking one or two

days, and a same day cleaning option is

available. It makes it as easy as possible

for clients. The Cashel Street location

couldn’t be more convenient and a pickup

and drop-off service is available. 150

blinds per day can be cleaned at this site,

** The Best Clean and Shine EVERY TIME **

or one of their mobile vans can do up to

50 per day. That means they will come to

your home or office, remove and clean

your blinds on the spot and reinstall them

for you.

A cut-down and size alteration service

is available in order that the blinds you

bought are a perfect fit.

They are experts in their field with a

huge amount of experience to draw on.

In fact, all their staff has been on board

for at least 8 years, and many up to 20

years. Whatever the job involves, they

will work hard to make sure it gets done,

including one job of 800 blinds which

they completed in 4 days.

Gardening

Rachel Vogan sings the

praises of sweet peas

– tough little bloomers

that can light up the

garden year-round

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Thursday July 27 2017

Flowers that are as sweet as can be

WHENEVER I’M asked what

my favorite flower is, I struggle to

answer as I have so many.

It’s like asking which is your

favourite child – how do you

choose? My top picks always

include dahlias, gladioli, daphne,

and daisies; I am never without

roses or hellebores no matter

where I live, and every year

without fail I grow sweet peas

anywhere I can find room to

squeeze them in.

I’m not sure where my devotion

to them came from – my uncle

Teddy used to grow them in

French Farm in the 1970s, so

it may have been from there,

although I have always loved any

flower I can pick for a posy, and

have a special affection for any

bloom that will give someone joy

when they’re presented with it.

New Zealand has a strong

history with sweet peas, both

in terms of seed production

for English and European seed

catalogues and sweet pea breeding.

Dr Keith Hammett is the

godfather of sweet pea breeding;

he has a passion for these blooms

that just captivates you.

Keith’s interest in the sweet pea

started off as a teenager, when

his uncle decided he wanted to

separate his flower and vegetable

garden, doing so by planting a

dividing row of sweet peas. To

hear Keith recall it, it was love

at first sight. This love has only

continued throughout the years,

as sweet pea varieties bearing the

Hammett name are now sold all

over New Zealand and around the

world.

I first met him about 20 years

ago, and was struck by his

contagious keenness for both

breeding plants and creating

cultivars that fitted the local

New Zealand climate. I couldn’t

PACKED WITH PERFUME: High Scent (left) is tremendous

variety to plant. Sweet pea Bix (middle) and Pink Nines for the

show bench.

quite keep up with all the

different characteristics he was

producing and aiming for, but was

mesmerised and wanted to soak

up what I could, knowing that I

could stand to learn a lot from

him. So I sat and listened, barely

saying a word!

Fast forward a few decades

and every year I plant out dozens

of his varieties. My go-to is his

High Scent as it has got the

most magnificent fragrance, and

beautiful flowers with an antique

cream base and delicate violet

edging on each petal. One of its

best features is probably its prolific

blooming capacity, as once it starts

flowering in November I can be

picking it continuously until the

end of March, as long as I pick off

any spent flower seed pods along

the way, and make sure to fertilise

and water them regularly. Like me,

they love their tucker!

For the show bench I always

plant Piggy Sue (not to be

confused with Peggy Sue), named

after a pig rescued from farrowing

stalls. Its colouring is a pink flush

against a cream ground, with

young flowers that often resemble

a pink picotee when they first

open. Last year I planted Pink

Nines for the first time, which has

masses of flowers on each stem –

up to nine on each. Paradox has

an intense, rich, violet-blue flower

but has lost its ability to climb,

so is one you would plant as a

ground cover or for use in hanging

baskets.

Keith says all the sweet peas

he offers are great for picking,

reminding me that “Sweet peas are

the ultimate ‘cut and come again’

flower”, meaning that the more

you pick from the flower stems,

the more they will produce.

He goes on to mention: “The

ones with the larger, frilly flowers

have longer stems than, say, some

of the smaller flowered forms

with the strongest scent.” His

most highly-scented varieties are

Original, High Scent, More Scent,

and High Society.

WHEN, WHERE & HOW

• Plenty of sun needs to be

on the menu – while sweet peas

will bloom in half-day sun, the

results are always best when they

are planted somewhere that gets

rays all day.

• Sow seeds now or look

for seedlings, as they are in

the shops throughout August,

September and into October.

• Seeds can be sown directly

where they are to flower

provided the soil is well drained,

in a sunny position, and you

are able to protect against slugs,

snails and maybe birds.

• If sown into pots for

planting out later, seeds do

not need to be grown inside

or in the glasshouse, simply

sow and place outside in full

light.

• Provide support – sweet

peas are a tumbling vine and

need something to cling to when

climbing. This support can be

as simple as bamboo canes,

wigwams, or old bike wheels,

while netting against a fence or

wall is a popular choice.

BOOKS/ARTS I 2

Austin Mitchell’s new book Revenge of the

Rich The neoliberal revolution in Britain and New

Zealand, published by Canterbury University

Press, charts the development of a marketdriven

neoliberal creed, where governments

are devoted to efficiency, cost-cutting and

austerity at the people’s expense.

Many New Zealanders will remember

Mitchell’s best-selling book The

Half-Gallon Quarter-Acre

Pavlova Paradise (1972).

In this new, outspoken

opinion piece, Mitchell,

who was a long-serving

British Labour MP for

Grimsby, denounces the

economic policy of the

last three decades as “a

long march down Dead-

End Street” – a neoliberal

experiment that has

benefitted the rich and

eroded the “good society”

with its welfare state and

government commitment

to the betterment of the

people.

In Revenge of the Rich

Mitchell considers how

neoliberalism became government

policy in Britain and New Zealand and

discusses its consequences in terms of

greater inequality, lower growth and higher

unemployment. He believes this book

is the first to look at the rise and fall of

neoliberalism as the prevailing ideology in the

two countries where it was imposed “further

and faster” than in any others.

The role of the state was cut back and

power handed to the market, he says.

New book denounces

neoliberal policies

“In both countries industry declined, assets

were sold to survive and the social balances,

which had been tilted to the people after

the war, were tilted back to wealth. Taxes on

business and the rich fell as their share of

Gross Domestic Product increased. The result,

in each country, was a revolt of the people,

voting for proportional representation in New

Zealand to tie the hands of

the politicians and, much later,

voting for Brexit in Britain as

the people and the regions left

behind by the austerity said

‘enough is enough’.”

Mitchell says gaps between

the rich and the less well

off in both Britain and New

Zealand have been widened

over the three decades of

neoliberalism. Ultimately, he

would like readers to take

a hopeful message from the

book: “Things don't have to

be this way and alternative

policies become possible if

governments listen to the

people rather than follow

an ideology,” he says.

In the book’s foreword the Rt. Hon Helen

Clark, who was Prime Minister of New

Zealand 1999-2008 says: “Agree with it, or

disagree with it, love it or loathe it, Austin

Mitchell’s writing provokes us to reflect

on what our common future could be. It is

written in a lively fashion with highly quotable

turns of phrase.”

Healthy eating for kids

For parents and grandparents that face problems getting the youngsters in their family to

eat good, healthy food, or are unsure what are the right foods to offer them, the new book by

Christchurch dietitian Lea Stening provides plenty of helpful information.

Released on May 19 to coincide with Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day, which saw a global

focus on children’s nutrition and how children’s health can be

improved, Healthy Kids, Happy Lives helps parents and grandparents

to understand the nutritional components need to build structure

into a child’s diet, as well as the family’s.

It shows how to buy and prepare the right types of foods and

includes some easy-to-prepare recipes that show examples of

good nutrition.

A Food Ambassador for New Zealand, with more than 40

years’ experience in paediatrics and sports nutrition, Stening

is passionate about helping children improve their physical and

mental well-being and performance through better nutrition.

Arts Centre

restoration

The damage to the Christchurch Arts

Centre in the 2011 earthquake and its

subsequent closure has been distressing

for many of us who went there regularly to

enjoy its variety of facilities and activities –

often with visitors from out-of-town.

Thankfully, this unique complex is being

restored, so as time goes on we will be able

to enjoy it all again.

Christchurch photographer Johannes

van Kan has been documenting the Arts

Centre’s post-earthquake restoration

since 2013. His limited edition, behind-thescenes

photographs of the Arts Centre’s

restoration are featured in the first

exhibition at the Christchurch Arts Centre’s

new exhibition space, Pumanawa, which is

located in the restored Boys’ High building

on Worcester Boulevard.

Called Restore, the exhibition of these

spectacular, large-format images opens on

July 26, and they will be for sale, with all

proceeds going towards the restoration of

the Arts Centre. More than half of the Arts

Centre restoration is now complete but the

remainder of this painstaking work cannot

be finished unless another $35million is

fundraised, says fundraising manager Susan

Henson.

“Johannes is one of Christchurch’s leading

photographers and we are grateful that

he has donated his skills and captured the

restoration in such an artistic manner – the

images can only be described as stunning,”

she says.

The Arts Centre is a unique historical

treasure in Canterbury and these

photographs give a very special insight into

the care and attention that has gone into

saving it for future generations. This is a

chance for individuals and corporates to

purchase their own slice of our city’s history

while at the same time helping to ensure

that this incredibly important restoration is

completed.”

Photographer Johannes van Kan with one of

his artworks.

Following Restore, Pumanawa – which

means natural talent – will be available

for hire on a weekly basis by artists,

photographers, designers and members of

other creative organisations at a cost of

$300 plus GST.

Ms Henson says the bright and lofty

upper-floor exhibition space has been

especially designed for community use.

The high-vaulted ceiling, meticulously

restored paintwork and woodwork, and

natural light make it a perfect space to

exhibit. It’s also within close proximity to

other art establishments in the central city.”

Offering the space to artists and artsfocused

community groups at an affordable

rate perfectly aligns with the Arts Centre’s

goal of fostering arts, culture, education

and creative industries in the heart of

Christchurch, says Arts Centre CEO André

Lovatt.

“Our day-to-day focus is restoring these

unique historic buildings, but the driving

force behind it is to create a home for

creative entrepreneurs in the heart of the

city. We’re determined to be more relevant

to our community than we have ever been

and this is another way of achieving this.”

3 I NEW DIRECTIONS

A new career after 50

Alistair Hazeldine

industry. I loved the interaction with my 40

staff, their customers and the suppliers that

help a business function, but towards the end

I felt that it had become repetitive. To put it

this way, I felt like I was someone who loved

climbing mountains, but that I had climbed

every mountain numerous times and therefore

it had lost some of its challenge.

After taking six months away from work,

I undertook a computer course at ARA as a

step towards getting back into the discipline

of getting up early (attending the 8am course)

and being committed to achieving something

worthwhile. (I would recommend this to

anyone). Computer knowledge is essential and

without it, your confidence will suffer.

I chose real estate as my new career as it

allowed me to continue to meet people and

most importantly for me, to assist them in

making decisions and being a part of things

that affect their lifestyle. I selected Harcourts

Grenadier as the company I wished to work

with due to their outstanding reputation in the

market and the strong brand values they stand

for. I felt that with starting a new career, it was

significant to select a company that had a high

market presence and one that had moral values

I could relate to. Selling real estate is different

from selling motor vehicles, as with motor

vehicles stock was easier to obtain, whereas in

real estate it’s all about getting something to

sell, i.e. a listing.

What have been the challenges,

the impact on your family and

your lifestyle, and what have

been the rewards?

I have to say that the earthquakes affected

my ability to function in unexpected ways. Our

family home in Sumner became unlivable, as it

was hit by a boulder, and we were ‘white zoned’

for nearly three years, meaning that life seemed

to stand still. This is still very hard to describe,

but if there has been a benefit, it is that I have

a deeper understanding of the value of family

and especially the loving support of my wife.

Everyone’s circumstances and experiences due

to the earthquakes are unique and I am grateful

that for us, things could have been worse.

Coming from a senior position in an industry

that I knew ‘inside out’ and starting fresh is

challenging. It feels awkward to find yourself

asking a lot of questions (and there is a lot

to learn), where once you were the person

giving the answers. That said, you are the only

one feeling this way so you have to put these

feelings aside.

Real estate involves weekend work but this

hasn’t affected my voluntary role with the

Canterbury Rugby Football Union as a grade

advisor for under-8 rugby, as this occupies

Saturday mornings, leaving the afternoons free

for open homes. My wife loves biking and we

are often away at the same time, and with

all of our five children having grown up and

left home, my responsibilities as a father have

changed slightly and I don’t need to be at home

as often as I did when the kids were younger.

What advice would you give

anyone thinking about changing

career after the age of 50?

Remember that you are in control of your

destiny and that changing a career at any age

will ‘throw up’ concerns, but you must firmly

believe that ‘anything is possible’ if you truly

want it.

Go for it, and remember there’s no prize for

staying in a job or role when it’s not inspiring

you. This will naturally be different from

person to person, but in my case, I need to be

challenged.

Redundancy, a move to a new town, or just

the desire for a new direction can mean a

change of career in middle age and beyond,

which can be both daunting and exciting.

Forward 50 talks to Alistair Hazeldine, who was

57 when he decided to make the move from

vehicle sales to real estate, about why he did it,

and how it has changed his life.

Are you from Christchurch?

Although I have lived in several parts of New

Zealand, Christchurch is home and it is exciting

to see the improvements around the city as the

rebuild continues.

What work were you involved in

previously and for how long?

I had been in the motor industry since

PHONE 354 5616

108 Sawyers Arms Rd, Papanui, Christchurch

leaving high school and working in Christchurch

for the same company for 34 years – in vehicle

sales for seven years, sales management for 11

years and dealer principal for the last 15 years.

In that time I had seen and participated in a

wide variety of changes and always understood

that adaptability is a key to keeping ahead. I

always wish to maintain an open mind and

accept change as inevitable and believe that you

are better to go with change than waste a lot

of energy trying to object to it. Good times

don’t last, but nor do bad times either, and if

you keep moving forward and don’t dwell on

anything for too long, it’s best.

Why did you decide to take up

a new career, and why did you

choose real estate?

I really enjoyed my time in the motor

Law/PuzzLes I 4

Have you thought about what care you

want to receive when you reach the end of

your life? During the course of our lives

we expend an enormous amount of energy

planning where we want to live, what we want

to achieve during our lifetimes, but we don’t

give much time or thought to what we would

like to happen at the end of our lives.

If you have a major health event that robs

you of the ability to make your wishes known

to your family, or to the health professionals

responsible for your care, taking some time

now to discuss what you want at the end of

your life will provide vital guidance if your

loved ones have to make those decisions for

you.

An Advance Care Plan or Advance Directive

(“Advance Care Plan”) is a way to help you

communicate to your loved ones your wishes

about your future health care. It will help your

loved ones and your health care providers

to understand what is important to you and

what treatment you do or do not want in the

event that you are unable to communicate

with those around you.

Under the Code of Health and Disability

Services Consumers’ Rights you have the right

to use an Advance Care Plan to make your

health care wishes known. Examples might be

the desire not to receive blood transfusions,

be resuscitated or kept alive with the use of

life support systems.

The code gives a person, who has capacity

to make decisions for themselves, the right to

make an Advance Care Plan. However, you

should be aware that at present an Advance

Advanced

Care Plans

Care Plan has no specific statutory status in

New Zealand and is therefore not enforceable

at law and may not be followed.

When deciding on whether to follow

your Advance Care Plan, your health care

professional will try to ensure that:

• You had capacity at the time the Advance

Care Plan was made;

• You made your Advance Care Plan of your

own free will;

• You were informed and understood the

decisions you were making; and your

Advance Care Plan applies to the current

circumstances, whatever they may be.

The trickiest part of an Advance Care Plan

may be discussing your wishes with your

loved ones. Many of us don’t like to give

much thought to the decisions we may be

called on to make should our loved ones be ill

and unable to communicate their wishes.

Talking about your Advance Care Plan with

your loved ones is an important conversation

and should be an integral part of your estate

planning. Sharing your wishes will give you

all peace of mind in knowing that should the

worst come to pass you will have equipped

your loved ones with the information they

need to make the right decisions for you.

At Harmans we have experience dealing

with estate planning and can help you to

formalise your wishes. Give Fleur McDonald

a call on 03 352 2293 to arrange an

appointment to discuss your situation.

A new approach to achieving

health & fitness

The role of genetics, and how it relates to people’s nutrition, exercise and health is an absolute

game changer when it comes to Kiwis improving their lives, a leading New Zealand exercise

expert says.

ExerciseNZ chief executive Richard Beddie says the science of genetics has been around for

some time, but the ability to measure it cheaply and easily is quite new.

“Only recently have we begun to understand how important genetics is when it comes to

people’s health. No longer is science saying what is best for everyone but rather what is best for

each person based on genetic make-up,” Mr Beddie says.

Health professionals and exercise professionals can now use tools to provide info on their

client’s genetic make-up, and more importantly, what this means for their exercise, nutrition and

general wellness needs.

The key thing is understanding different genetic types respond differently and have different

needs. So we now have the tools so that exercise and nutrition can be structured for optimum

health in a way that is most enjoyable, based on a person’s genetic make-up.

“Some people are built for short, sharp bursts of energy and these same people respond well

to a competitive environment. Some people, on the other hand, need slower, strength-based

activities. There are others who prefer to work out alone and they may respond well to light

weights or yoga or moderate steady exercise.

“We know that, if considered a sport, exercise continues to be the number-one sport in New

Zealand, having more participants than rugby, netball and cricket combined.

There are currently an estimated 550,000 members of gyms and exercise facilities alone. But

exercise is now just one of the many components to wellness. Many providers of exercise now

offer far more holistic products and services, from dietary advice, to stress management.

“Genetic profiling tools support this by proving detailed information that exercise professionals

can then use to coach better health and wellness outcomes. Research confirms all this.”

Mr Beddie says last month one of the world experts in the genetic fitness approach, Dr

Cam McDonald, toured New Zealand with ExerciseNZ, bringing the latest research and best

implementation to more than 250 exercise professionals around the country.

He says no longer is science saying what is best for everyone, but rather what is best for the

individual, based on their genetic make-up. And not just that, what is best for one person right

now, may be different when they age.

“So we see the need for genetics and timing to be optimal for a person to reach their best

health. Health and exercise professionals can now use tools to provide information on their

client’s genetic make-up and, more importantly, what this means for their exercise, nutrition and

health,” Mr Beddie says.

On January 1, 2011, the rules governing work-related hearing loss covered by ACC changed.

Prior to this date, all rehabilitative costs, for example hearing aids, were covered by ACC

irrespective of the degree of hearing loss attributable to work-related causes.

ACC now makes a contribution or part payment towards the cost of hearing aids purchased by

the claimant, provided the work-related component of their total hearing loss is six per cent or

greater.

Further to this a correction is made from about the age of mid-50s onwards to take into

account the effects of ageing on hearing loss as we get older.

Many individuals make their ACC claim for work-related hearing loss too late in life, where the

effects of age push them under the six per cent threshold and their claim is declined.

Therefore, it is prudent to make your claim for work-related, or industrial hearing loss as it

also known, sooner rather than later, thus improving your chances of success and the claim being

accepted.

ACC will pay for the running costs of your hearing aids, i.e. batteries, and will make a

contribution to any repair your aids may need outside the manufacturer’s warranty period.

In summary, ACC will allow you to ‘top-up’ to purchase the hearing aids of your choice that are

compatible with your hearing loss, lifestyle and budget.

Under the present regulations ACC will consider replacing your ACC-funded hearing aids every

six years.

“It is important to make your ACC application now, do not put it off, as time will work against

you,”, audiologist Greg Foote says.

If you are not satisfied with your present hearing aids, provider, require more information or

wish to investigate making a claim for work-related hearing loss, make an appointment for a free

no obligation consultation with Merivale Hearing Clinic.

Benefits of yoga

more than physical

Mind-body practices such as yoga have been around for a long

time. In fact yoga can be dated back over 5000 years.

In more recent times yoga has become more accepted in the

mainstream, with exercise options in this area increasing. This

includes a big surge not just in mainstream exercise facilities, but

also standalone studios offering specialist mind-body exercise

options.

According to New Zealand national yoga advocate and teacher

Persephone Singfield, “As yoga becomes more diverse in what is

on offer, more people can easily access it. No matter your age,

gender, body shape or size, there’s a form of yoga out there for

you. Yoga has become more accessible by different brands creating

styles of yoga practice for every market.”

There is plenty of research to indicate that getting your heart

rate up and working with heavier weights and intensities is

beneficial. Equally, there is understanding on the other side that

indicates the inclusion of more gentle, mindful exercise practices

can also have positive effects on health and exercise levels.

For many, the option of intense workouts is not appropriate.

When injury, ability or life stage prevents high-intensity activity,

a mind-body workout such as yoga is essential to staying active.

Those who do enjoy a more intensive exercise workout are also

finding the addition of a more focused workout amongst their

higher-intensity session adds to their exercise enjoyment, and

their results.

Mind-body refers to a state where interactions and connections

are made between your mind, your body and the world. Generally

speaking, a mind-body exercise form is one in which the pace is

slow enough for this connection to be focused on. That’s not to

say there isn’t a sense of being connected on a run or during a

weights session, but this is not the main focus of the activity.

The benefits of yoga go beyond the physical, although this is

one of its attractions as part of an exercise routine. The main

physical benefits relate to the stretching component, bringing

benefits such as reduced muscle tension, improved range of

movement in the joints, better muscular co-ordination and

increased circulation of the blood to the body.

Where yoga really becomes the star of the show, however, is

in its stress-reducing and relaxation benefits. With people living

busier lives, constantly connected to stimulation and data even

during downtime, the need for consciously created mindfulness

becomes more important. It is an opportunity to slow down and

connect, with mind and body.

“I often say to my students that we are losing touch with how

to live a simple life and that’s putting our health and happiness

at risk,” Persephone says. “Carving out time to practise yoga

leverages our downtime massively. For example, the difference

between taking time out to breathe and connect versus watching

TV to blob out is huge when it comes to our overall well-being.

“My students report significant changes in their lives as a result

of attending the yoga course. They sleep deeper, they are happier,

less stressed, and are practising the tools that yoga gives them

throughout each and every day. Overall they are more connected

to living a meaningful life.”

While the injury and health risks associated with more gentle

mind-body practices are lower than those of a higher-impact or

intensity workout, keeping safe and exercising at a level that is

suitable for you is just as important.

The first sign that you are in the right place to get a safe and

effective mind-body workout is that the instructor or facility does

an activity pre-screen to make sure there are no risks, or things

to think about before starting that would indicate participation is

a risk.

Secondly, the teacher or instructor should offer modifications

throughout the class to enable all participants to achieve at the

right level.

From October 2017, the New Zealand Register of Exercise

Professionals (REPs) will be recognising yoga teachers through

their new Registered Yoga Teacher registration level. Those

registered at this level will hold relevant knowledge and skill to

deliver safe and effective yoga to New Zealanders.

7 I Travel

It’s all about the journey

Our last night together at El Nacional

restaurant

By Chris Lyons, Director and Tour Host, World Journeys

If group travel conjures up images of hordes of tourists following a guide with a megaphone,

think again! Small group travel today can be the ultimate way to travel to some of the world’s

most exciting, challenging and exotic countries. I am in the enviable position of hosting small

groups of Kiwi travellers each year to the likes of South America and Africa, and can honestly

say it’s the way to go!

You may not have friends who share your particular ‘bucket list’ of travel desires, but you

don’t like travelling alone. Perhaps tackling a foreign language is too daunting, or you simply

don’t have the energy to do it all yourself. Booking a small group tour takes care of all of that.

There is company to share the experiences with, all the nitty gritty details are taken care of by

someone else, and your host is there to smooth the way should anything unexpected happen.

World Journeys creates and operates a range of small group tours each year, selecting our

most-loved destinations such as the game parks of Southern Africa, the beauty and traditions

of Japan, and the epic ports of the Mediterranean. Some of these journeys include a cruise –

whether that be Holland America Line in the Med, or a small ship in the Galapagos Islands.

Other journeys take roads less travelled, such as our itinerary in still-developing Madagascar

(perfect for avid travellers!).

The Wonders of South America group

at Machu Pichu

New for 2018 is a ‘Croatia & Slovenia’ journey, which has a little taste of Venice and Mostar

thrown in. There is so much to savour – the karst caves of Postojna, the castles of Predjama and

Bled, picturesque open-air markets, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, historic churches, palaces

and bridges as well as the spectacular Plitvice Lakes National Park. A highlight for many will

be the small ship cruise along the Adriatic Coast, visiting some of the most beautiful Croatian

Islands. Wine and food tasting along the way gives you a true glimpse of local life.

In fact, food and wine is always a highlight of our travel, and we often include a farewell dinner

at a ‘hidden gem’ favourite restaurant enjoyed only by those ‘in the know’.

Most of all, I love the conviviality of travelling in, and hosting, a small group. There’s always

company if you want it, or time to do your own thing every now and then. And every person

brings something to the mix. There may be a keen photographer in the group, who you can

follow to get the best shots, or a fashionista, who will call upon my haggling skills to buy

jewellery or textiles in the markets.

Many lifelong friendships have been forged on tour, and many return again to travel with us in

subsequent years.

Travel is all about the journey, but it’s also about sharing the experience, and that’s the beauty

of travelling with a group.

Taking care of our skin during the winter

months is important to keep it looking

good. Forward 50 asks Dermal Therapist &

Micropigmentation specialist Pip McGregor

of Making Faces NZ about combatting winter

conditions and how to maintain that healthy

glow throughout the year.

We know winter can have

adverse effects on our skin, so

what are the main issues we have

to deal with?

New Zealand winters can wreak havoc

on the skin, mainly due to the constant

exposure to heat pumps and air-conditioning

that dries the skin out. Also, the crisp, dry

Skin care

in the cooler

months

air and extremes in temperatures of going

from a toasty house to a cold car are the

perfect conditions for broken capillaries. These

combined with the fact that we don’t tend to

drink as much water in winter and many of us

bypass the sunscreen – all of these factors can

lead to less than glowing skin in winter.

How should we address those

issues?

While many of these issues are

environmental there are definitely ways to

combat dry, irritable winter skin. Try to keep

temperatures moderate in your home and

avoid long, hot showers. Drinking warm water

with a squeeze of lemon is a great start to the

day for your body and your skin will love you

for it! A barrier cream is really important to

prevent lipid depletion when you are outside

in the elements, as is a good sunscreen –

which is easy to forget in winter! Your skincare

programme should be tailored to winter

weather and if your skin still feels dry, see

your skin specialist for some hydrating winter

facials.

Apart from seasonal factors,

ageing also affects our skin,

so what ongoing care, including

factors like diet, would you

recommend to keep our skin

looking fresh and youthful for

as long as possible?

The skin is our largest organ – the healthier

you are on the inside the nicer it will look

on the outside. It is important to treat the

skin holistically, so not only from the outside

in but also from the inside out. A good

vitamin C internal supplement is essential

as the body cannot make collagen without

adequate vitamin C. I also advise plenty of

good fats in the diet and a good-quality omega

supplement to prevent ageing. Combine these

with a lowered sugar intake – sugar causes

glycation (fine wrinkles) in the skin and excess

consumption can cause premature ageing.

Are there any particular types

of skincare products for our face

and body that will work best on

an ongoing basis?

From the science I have seen on the subject

the best products available topically for

ageing have either ascorbic acid or vitamin C,

retinol or alpha hydroxy acids. It is important

that they are used correctly so get some

advice before self-medicating. There are huge

advancements in the skincare industry with

stem cell therapy so watch this space… and

never ever forget your sunscreen!

Serums are now widely promoted

as being a key factor in skincare.

Do your recommend them and if

so, what role do they play?

Serums are important in a good skincare

prescription, but again they must be used

correctly. To increase the absorption of a

serum you must have an adequately cleansed

skin, and it is best to use serums at night

when cell turnover and regeneration occur. A

good serum is like a high-dose, concentrated

supplement for your skin – it will enhance

your routine but it won’t replace it.

Advertisements for a range of

different skincare products

claim they will reduce wrinkles

and restore elasticity – can they

really do that?

My advice is read the fine print. So many

adverts for over-the-counter products for

big corporates will make bold claims that I

believe to be little more than clever marketing.

Therapeutic brands you buy over the counter

have very strict guidelines on the depth

they are allowed to penetrate to in the skin

– thereby not affecting the skin structure

in the slightest. Note that companies say,

“reduce the appearance” of wrinkles – not the

actual wrinkle. Sometimes those horrifically

expensive, beautifully packaged creams are

little more than just beautiful bottles designed

to smell and feel luxurious. I like to see the

science behind a product rather than the

packaging – find an expert who you trust

because it can be a minefield of information

out there!

Is regular exfoliation important,

and how often should it be done?

I recommend a gentle enzyme exfoliant

rather than a manual exfoliant (e.g. beads,

husks, anything rough). Enzyme exfoliates

slough away dead skin cells only – think of it

like Pacman on the surface of the skin. While

the rough exfoliates can feel good at the

time and super smooth straight afterwards,

they can cause microscopic abrasions on the

skin, which will actually make it rougher the

following day. Alpha hydroxy acids, papain,

bromelain and vitamin C have enzymatic

exfoliant properties that can be gentle enough

to be used every day. This gives you a glow and

also allows for greater penetration of serums

and moisturisers.

If there was one product or

procedure that we should always

use to maintain healthy, glowing

skin, what would that be?

For an anti-aging treatment, I can’t go past

micro needling – the research and the results

speak for themselves – combined with a good

homecare system of course. There is no point

in spending money on facials, then to use

poor-quality products at home. It’s what you

do every day that really makes a difference to

your skin. Oh, and sunscreen – your mum was

right about sunscreen!

Plenty of diversity for movie

lovers at 2017 NZIFF

The Christchurch leg of the 2017 New

Zealand International Film Festival (NZIFF)

runs from August 3-20, and once again there is

a diverse selection for movie lovers to get their

teeth into.

There are plenty of international offerings to

select from, but one with a strong local flavour

is Human Traces. Filmed in the South Island over

25 days, the film is written and directed by

Christchurch-raised Nic Gorman, who was part

of the Court Theatre’s improv group in the city

for eight years before moving to Wellington in

2004.

Human Traces stars Sophie Henderson

and Mark Mitchinson as a husband-and-wife

scientist team sent to rid a Subantarctic

island of pests. When a mysterious young man

(played by Vinnie Bennett, who attended Aranui

High’s drama academy) arrives at the remote

research station, secrets threaten the couple’s

relationship in a hostile wilderness, 750km

south of New Zealand. The film was shot in

two South Island locations, Banks Peninsula and

the Catlins.

“I’ve long been fascinated by the dark history

of Subantarctic islands,” Gorman says.

“Our fictional location is loosely based

on Campbell Island. I was researching its

geography and the upper slopes of Campbell

Island reminded me of Banks Peninsula with

its tussock spurs, volcanic rocks and sharp

outcrops. We amalgamated this location with

the rugged and dramatic coastline of the

Catlins to create our island on the screen.”

The film’s cinematographer, John

Chrisstoffels, has been teaching filmmaking

at the University of Canterbury for about 25

years. About half the crew is from Christchurch,

including producer Nadia Maxwell and

production designer Martin Gorzeman.

The World Premiere will be held on the

second night of the Festival on August 4 at the

Isaac Theatre Royal.

The festival line-up also includes eight New

Zealand-made documentaries. New Zealand

artists, artisans, extreme sportspeople and

energetic adventurers will be celebrated on

screen with highlights including Head Like a

Hole receiving the biopic treatment in Swagger

of Thieves, 40 years of gay history as told

through personal interviews in 100 Men, and

the life’s work, and approach to life, of Swissborn

contemporary jeweller Kobi Bosshard in

Sheila, in which his cousin, writer and illustrator

Sheila Natusch, retraces a long life dedicated

to sharing her understanding and love of New

Zealand’s nature and history.

The life story of this natural historian,

illustrator and writer, now in her 90s, is a

beautiful, truly Antipodean journey. Born in

1926 on Rakiura (Stewart Island) to the Traill

family, Sheila’s early childhood memories

include a near-drowning at the hands of

schoolmates – this and other life misfortunes

she shrugs off casually. Growing up in the

deep south led to an adventurous resilience,

which saw her climb multiple mountains, cycle

from Picton to Bluff and write dozens of

groundbreaking natural history books, including

her magnum opus, Animals of New Zealand.

Produced by Christine Dann and featuring

beautiful historic footage of the lower

south in the 1930s and ’40s, this film offers

fascinating glimpses into life as one of few

female students at Otago University, and

covers Sheila’s friendship with Janet Frame and

their subsequent and unsuccessful foray into

teaching.

A move to Wellington in the ’50s saw Sheila

and husband Gilbert Natusch take up residence

in Owhiro Bay, while she had professional stints

at the National Library and Correspondence

School.

Viewers will love this radiant, defiant and

unconventional life story which ranges from

the southern wilds to the rugged Wellington

coastline, where Sheila still lived until very

recently, without car, TV, lipstick or alcohol,

planning to “get the last bit of fun out of life

that there is”. - Jo Randerson

BY ROSS KIDDIE

If you’ve been thinking about buying a small,

trendy hatchback but have been struggling to

find one which has easy entry and egress then

Hyundai has the car for you.

As its nomenclature suggests the i20 Cross

is based on the i20 hatchback, but it is a car

that has had the suspension raised 20mm so

that it sits taller from the road and makes

getting in and out far from a chore.

The i20 Cross also gets a lot of cosmetic

enhancements, there’s a body kit, big wheels

and roof rails, which make it stand a world

apart from the cheeky wee hatchback it is

based on. In fact, if you use your imagination

you could also look at the i20 Cross and think

that it was a downsized sport utility vehicle, it

looks muscular.

That’s a good marketing ploy by Hyundai.

SUVs are the big movers in the market today

and the i20 Cross certainly looks the part,

yet it gets about its business with all of the

functionality of the car it is based on.

Under the bonnet sits a 1.4-litre, twincamshaft,

16-valve engine. Hyundai rates

it with a 7k4kW power output, along

with 134Nm of torque. Consequently, it

is no powerhouse, but it does get about

its business, unflustered and in a smooth

operating manner.

It is also a fuel miser. When I picked the car

up, it was a little low on fuel but the salesman

said it was good for the distance, and even

though I took it back almost empty I did

cover enough kilometres to form a thorough

evaluation.

According to the manufacturers, the i20

Cross gets a 6.7l/100km (42mpg) combined

cycle average. During my three days with the

car it was constantly listing around 8l/100km

(35mpg) which was mostly recorded at

highway speed, also returning a 6.2l/100km

(45mpg) instantaneous figure at 100km/h, the

engine turning over quite busy at 2700rpm.

The latter figure is significant because the

i20 Cross drives out through a four-speed

automatic gearbox. Regular readers will relate

to my many comments that the more gears

you have, the smoother the transition of drive

and the easier the engine operates.

A recent photo

of Sheila Natusch,

now in her 90s

Four-speed gearboxes are used only rarely

these days and I’m surprised Hyundai hasn’t

given the i20 one of those fabulous sixspeeders

it has in other models. That aside,

the engine is honest but there are times when

as a driver you are wishing it would change

down or up, but distance between gears

doesn’t always suit the power outputs.

Under acceleration, the wee 1.4-litre engine

works hard to provide an 11sec standstill to

100km/h time, along with a 8sec time to make

120km/h from 80km/h.

It must be remembered, though, that the

i20 Cross isn’t designed to be a hard charger

and for its role it is quiet and capable, and the

engine is a delight, it enjoys working the entire

rev band.

I didn’t take the test car far, but I did put

it through a couple of challenging corners

and I can report it feels delightful through

the steering and has control and balance not

ordinarily expected to be in a car which is

priced for the budget market ($29,990).

The suspension is a mix of struts up

front and a tube beam rear axle system. The

spring and damper rates are set a little on

the firm side, not so much that the ride is

compromised but the benefit is in the way

it arrests body movement in a corner. Even

though it sits tall, body movement is gentle,

not awkward.

Grip is supplied by high-quality Pirelli

Cinturato tyres (205/45 x 17in) and, as

mentioned, they are an inch bigger in

diameter than the standard i20 and they

contribute to the strong steering feel and

sharp corner turn-in. I was quite delighted

with the way the i20 Cross handles, it is quite

purposeful.

In terms of in-cabin detailing, Hyundai has

certainly upped the ante in terms of quality

plastic and trim elements. The switchgear is

beautifully made and the appointment is firstclass.

When I took the car back to the dealership

I inquired about price, and even though

almost $30k is on the ticket, there may be

some movement from that through Hyundai

New Zealand. That being the case it may

tempt in more ways than one.

Wisdom in a grandparent’s

life of meals

Smoked fish and broccoli pasta

This is a tasty adaptation of a recipe used in Te Kohanga Reo O Ngaio in Wellington

with great success. The children there love it. Grown-ups will love it too.

INGREDIENTS

2 tbsp canola oil

2 tbsp white flour

1½ cups low fat milk

50g Edam cheese, grated

250g dried pasta, farfalle or penne

1 head broccoli florets

1 tsp canola oil

½ red onion, diced

2 tbsp capers, drained, rinsed

4 cloves garlic, crushed

175g smoked fish, flaked

2 tbsp lemon juice

½ cup parsley, chopped

DIRECTIONS

Cheese sauce

In a saucepan fry the flour with the first measure of canola oil until it begins to colour.

Gradually add the milk, mixing thoroughly to disperse the lumps.

When all the milk has been added bring to a gentle simmer and cook for a further 5 minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir through the grated cheese.

Set aside.

Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling unsalted water until al dente.

Remove the pasta from the pot and set aside.

Bring the water back to the boil and cook the broccoli until just cooked.

While the pasta and broccoli are cooking prepare the smoked fish by flaking it.

Gently sauté the onions and capers in the second measure of canola oil until translucent.

Add the garlic and cook for a further minute.

Remove from the heat and stir through the smoked fish, lemon juice and parsley.

To finish the dish, gently stir together the pasta with the broccoli, white sauce and smoked fish

mix.

By Janice Bremer,

Consulting Dietitian, Christchurch

As you tidy up after your usual breakfast of

porridge, you brush away the odd brown sugar

crystal from your table napkin.

“Nana I don’t want you to die!” declares

granddaughter, who has stayed the night.

“I am not dying”.

“Yes you are, you ate sugar!”

So what did granddaughter eat for breakfast?

Well nothing. She went to the fridge for a glass

of milk. Yours was “trim” for your high LDLcholesterol,

kilos to lose, Dad dying of a heart

attack and Mum having breaking bones. “That’s

got too much sugar”, she says.

There’s no sugar added to milk!” you say. You

show her the ingredient listing on the carton :

“Ingredients: Fresh, low-fat milk”.

No sugar there. She’s not convinced.

Fussing over a gram of sugar

Off to the internet with your little master

mathematician you go. That trim milk proves

to have 40 per cent fewer kilojoules (less

fattening), 90 per cent less animal saturated

fat (to lower LDL-cholesterol), 10 per cent

more protein and 14 per cent more calcium

(both needed for older health), than its full-fat

counterpart. It had a mere extra 0.2 grams of

natural milk sugar (lactose), no difference at all.

On the label of your wholegrain bread, she also

found one gram of sugar in a slice (to start the

yeast) – a mere speck!

A dash of sugar for flavour hurts no one.

Foods oozing in added sugars – sweet bakery,

desserts, sweets, sugary drinks and chocolate,

are the sugary spoilers of top health eating.

The World Health Organisation and American

Heart Association say limit added sugars to less

than two tablespoons (five to six teaspoons)

of added sugar a day for healthy kids and

adults, but Diabetes NZ halves this amount for

diabetes, which is also right for weight control.

Finding natural enough

Next on granddaughter’s food patrol is your

LDL-cholesterol-lowering margarine-spread.

“Ooh”, she says, “that’s black coming out of

the ground; it’s a bleached chemical-like plastic.”

Another ingredient check finds – water,

sunflower oil, canola oil, gelatin, salt, plant sterol,

soy lecithin, milk powder, food acid, betacarotene

(natural vitamin for colour) – it’s all

food. Not a chemical name in sight. The plant

sterol is for extra LDL-cholesterol lowering,

the gelatin and soy lecithin contribute texture,

the food acid protects it from spoiling, and the

colour is natural vitamin. All grown by nature.

The fats we really need for life and health,

and especially heart health, are in highest

concentrations in plant foods – liquid oils, nuts,

seeds, avocado and liquid oil-based, margarinestyle

spreads. We do not need separable animal

fat (dairy cream, meat fat, chicken skin) because

we make animal fat ourselves. Yet the lean and

low fat parts of animal foods do carry nutrients

we need. Fat has highest kilojoules per gram of

all foods, and like added sugars, can be rapidly

overeaten before our bodies signal that we

are full. Animal fat and added sugar are logical

targets for losing weight.

Research shows that eating high intakes of

animal fats together with low vegetable and fruit

intakes are linked to heart attacks compared

with eating plant oils in place of animal fat, with

high amounts of fruit and vegetables with some

wholegrains, dried beans, nuts and fish.

Out-eating our pills

Latest New Zealand stats reveal that 75 per

cent of 45 to 75 year-olds are ‘overweight’,

increasing our heart, diabetes and osteoarthritis

risks, and driving us into inactivity.

Numbers of us using LDL-cholesterollowering

meds, blood pressure meds, or

diagnosed type 2 diabetes or osteoarthritis,

all double from the 45-54 years age group to

the 55-64 age group. And that’s only counting

those diagnosed. Despite half of us being on

blood pressure meds by age 75, 30 per cent

have high blood pressure by age 55-64 rising to

over 40 per cent in the over 65s. Use of LDLcholesterol

meds rises from 10 per cent in the

age 45-54 years age group to more than 30 per

cent by the 65-plus age group.

The science of eating patterns is highly

complicated. Matching all the research to

someone’s personal set of health risks and

nutrient needs, in terms of three meals a day,

can be complex. If one little message sets you

fretting over one gram of one ingredient in

foods, it can start a roller coaster to tip your

whole eating pattern on its head.

The fine-tuning messages of eating for health

risks come from the synthesis of millions of

dollars of medical research around nutrients,

food, and dietary patterns.

NIGHTLIFE: The neon bling of Shinsekai strikes a contrast with the spectacular skyline of Osaka and the Imperial Hotel

Mixture of history and escapism in Osaka

• By Mike Yardley

AS THE powerhouse of the

Kansai region, Osaka struts its

modern architecture, neondrenched

nightlife and alluring

street food with unabashed pride.

The frenetic central city

pleasure precinct of Dotonbori

is primed for people watching, a

head-spinning throng of shops,

eateries and neon excess.

The famous Glico billboard is

Dotonbori’s essential photo-stop

in the this canaI-side entertainment

district. Brimming with

pink salons, karaoke bars and

pachinko parlours, I also strolled

through the splendid Ebisubashi

Shopping Arcade, a roofed

shopping stretch bursting with

kimonos, jewellery, cooking

equipment, and fast food vendors.

Don’t miss the centuries-old

Hozenji Temple which features

a statue completely covered in

moss. The moss continues to

thrive with the water that worshipers

often pour over it.

For pure sensory escapism, the

neon bling of Shinsekai is worth a

wander, in spite of its seedy overtones.

The district was developed

before the war as an entertainment

zone, crowned by Tsutenkaku

Tower, a nostalgic symbol

and observation deck, inspired

by the Eiffel Tower. The southern

part of Shinsekai was modelled

on New York’s Coney Island.

A venerable Shinsekai snack is

kushikatsu, which is composed

of various skewered, battered and

deep fried foods. Varieties on offer

range from chicken and beef,

to pumpkin and asparagus, to

the banana and ice cream dessert

varieties.

Many of Shinsekai’s kushikatsu

restaurants are open 24 hours,

but only truly burst into life after

dark.

Osaka is home to a quirky little

museum that traces the history of

instant ramen, a national craze,

which Japanese citizens once

voted as their country’s greatest

invention of the 20th-century.

You’ll find a sprawling exhibit

of instant noodles, the riveting

tale behind the first cup of instant

ramen ever created in 1958, an instant

noodle “tunnel”, and a shed

dedicated to the birth of chicken

ramen.

If you need a breather from all

the bling and vertical concrete

boxes, the expansive verdant

embrace of Osaka Castle Park is a

detox delight.

It’s a gold-rated attraction in

spring, given its home to 1200

plum trees and 600 cherry trees.

Strolling through this immaculately

maintained park, clad with

artful statues and shady canopies,

the starring centrepiece is the

historic castle.

Construction started in 1583 as

a display of power by Toyotomi

Hideyoshi, after he achieved his

mission of unifying Japan.

One hundred thousand workers

slogged their guts out building

this “impregnable” granite showpiece,

which was subsequently

destroyed three decades later by

an invading army.

It was subsequently rebuilt only

to fall into disrepair, before being

fully reconstructed in 1931. It

miraculously survived the

city-wide air raids during World

War 2.

Swathed in moats, stone walls,

trees and gardens, it’s soothingly

photogenic. I wandered down to

the castle, on the riverside walkway

from the glamorous Imperial

Hotel Osaka.

Gracing the Okawa River,

this shiny, lofty hotel serves up

spectacular skyline views and is

fiendishly popular during cherry

blossom season.

I stayed in one of the deluxe

Imperial Floor rooms with a

dreamy view to lull me to sleep.

Kimono-clad female attendants

are present on each floor, to assist

with any request.

Guestrooms are decorated in

a regal, elegant style with high

ceilings, plush bedding, automatic

curtains and intuitive light

switches. High-tech robot toilets,

deep bathtubs and fluffy bathrobes

headline the commitment

to pampered comfort.

Foodies are spoiled for choice

six different dining venues.

Breakfast buffet and westernstyle

favourites are served at the

casual, convivial Flying Tomato

Cafe, while Jasmine Cafe and

Les Saisons serve high quality

Chinese and French cuisine,

respectively.

Get your fill of authentic teppanyaki

and melt-in-your-mouth

Japanese beef at Kamon, Tokyostyle

ingredients at Kyubey or Japanese

fine dining at the legendary

years of culinary excellence under

its belt.

It’s easy to see why the Imperial

Hotel is consistently rated one of

Osaka’s best hotels. With its restful

rooms, gracious staff and ultraattentive

service, you can’t go

Lexus sports car launched

• By Ross Kiddie

AN EXCITING new

flagship model has been

launched by Lexus New

Zealand.

The LC 500 coupe is described

as a luxury car that

combines daring design

with leading edge engineering

and technology

to emulate that of a classic

grand tourer.

It arrives in New Zealand

in two variations. There is a

5-litre, naturally-aspirated

V8 model and a 3.5-litre V6

coupled to an electric hybrid

system. Both glass roof

models list at $215,000 with

a carbon fibre roof structure

adding an extra $5000

as an option. Prices include

a four-year maintenance

and service contract.

The V8 is a development

of the engine used

in the Lexus RC F and GS

F, it is rated with a 351kW

output along with 540Nm

of torque. The hybrid

system is rated at 264kW

and 348Nm. Both models

drive through a 10-speed

automatic transmission.

“Lexus has once again

demonstrated it has the

confidence to produce

brave uncompromised options

that are different from

the conventional designs

being adopted by competitors,’’

said Paul Carroll,

senior general manager for

Lexus New Zealand.

Sitting on 21in alloy

wheels, the LC is a 2+2

luxury coupe focused on

open road driving. Its handling,

responsiveness and

comfort have been finely

tuned to deliver exhilarating

performance.

Initial driving impressions

on Central Otago

roads were favourable. Both

the V8 and hybrid variants

proved they have true

grand touring performance

with solid engine outputs

and swift acceleration. A

standstill to 100km/h time

of around 5sec could be

expected from the V8. The

handling of both is direct

and decisive, the feeling of

balance, grip and control

GRAND

TOURER:

The LC500

form.

has been an engineering

priority.

Both models exude characteristic

engine sound, the

V8 is throaty and will roar

through the exhausts, the

V6 hybrid has its own individual

howl which encourages

keen performance.

“While we offer a hybrid

model, which is synonymous

with efficiency, we

are not shying away from

performance there either,’’

Mr Carroll said. “Drivers

will be surprised at the

power and driving feel of

the hybrid.’’

Lexus Safety System+

is fitted to both models

and includes a pre-crash

system with autonomous

emergency braking, allspeed

dynamic radar cruise

control, lane keeping assist

and lane depart alert.

One-stop auto repair business

goes the extra mile

Like most auto repair businesses, Diesel

Doctor in Addington offers customers a

courtesy vehicle to use while their own vehicle

is being repaired. However, Diesel Doctor goes

the extra mile for customers by also offering a

Hiace van. This means tradies and others that

use their van for work won’t be out of pocket

while their van is being repaired by Diesel

Doctor’s expert technicians.

It’s all part of their bumper-to-bumper

service, which includes all types of

mechanical repairs and servicing to both

petrol and diesel vehicles. The workshop

is fitted out with computerised scanning

equipment, enabling the technicians to

pinpoint exactly what needs to be done.

This includes repairs to both manual and auto

transmission gearboxes, as well as full engine

reconditioning.

Customers can have all their auto-electrical

work and panel repair work done through Diesel

Doctor too. They provide WOFs and are also

agents for Kumho tyres and AA batteries. So

basically, it is a one-stop-shop for all types of auto

repairs and servicing.

Owned and operated by qualified engineer

and mechanic Tony Wessels, Diesel Doctor was

established in 1994, and since then has built up a

reputation for quality workmanship and friendly

service.

Sport

Keeping the faith – will the Warriors finish third or last

• By Cameron McMillan

IT’S THAT time again for the

tradition of working out if the

Warriors can make the play-offs.

The side hasn’t made the NRL

play-offs since 2011, the second

longest drought in the NRL.

They currently sit six points

outside of the top eight following

Saturday’s defeat to the Cowboys.

With starting halfback Shaun

Johnson ruled out for at least

a large chunk of the remaining

six games, it seems unlikely

the Warriors, currently with

seven wins and 11 defeats, will

be playing play-off football this

season.

About 28 points has often been

regarded as the marker to reach

the NRL play-offs – it’s been that

case for the last eight seasons –

but it seems that number will

be possibly two or four points

higher this year.

All the Warriors have to do is

win their remaining six games

against the Sharks, Knights,

Raiders, Rabbitohs, Sea Eagles

and Tigers, which would get

them to 30 points.

The Knights, Tigers and

Rabbitohs also need to win a lot

of their remaining games while

the Sharks and Broncos have to

each win one of their last six.

Nine teams could finish on 30

points from third place to 11th

– with some big wins for the

Warriors getting them into third

on points difference and playing

away to the Roosters in the first

week of the play-offs. Simple

maths.

Now the other side of the coin.

The Warriors could finish as

low as 16th – which is last – if

they lose their remaining games

and Newcastle run up the table.

Yes, it’s equally unlikely, but the

Warriors are still a chance to get

the wooden spoon. There is a

‘mathematical chance,’ which

is a term you often hear with

the Warriors in late July and

August.

What’s more likely to happen

is the Warriors win three of their

last six and finish on 24 points.

That will put them in 11th spot

and a sixth straight year without

going beyond round 26.

Predicted top eight

1. Storm

2. Roosters

3. Broncos

4. Sharks

5. Cowboys

6. Eels

LINCOLN University will go for

The team to beat going into

Lincoln University will bring a

mix of grand-final experience

combined with young, x-factor

players into their clash against

3 University.

– Saturday 15 th April (Easter Weekend)

There’s quite a few (players)

that have been there for the last

two finals,” said Lincoln University

backs coach Ben Blair.

“We’ve got a few guys that have

actually gone on from university

and are now working but still

playing for us.”

Lincoln University will be led

by captain Nick Werahiko, who

recently became the club’s first

player to bring up 100 caps.

Although the team has been

successful in recent times, the

trend has been for Crusaders

Academy players to use it as a

stepping stone to provincial and

Super Rugby.

Lincoln University have suffered

just one loss in the top six

competition. However, that came

at the hands of University.

They’ve got some real

firepower with the like of Jone

Macilai and Brad Hemopo and a

lot of that team has been together

for a while,” said Blair.

“A few would say they’ve snuck

up on the likes of Sydenham and

Christchurch and ourselves, but

they’re playing some great footy

at the right time of the year.”

featuring players who have

gone on to Super Rugby. This

year is no different with the likes

of Brett Cameron, Eri Enari,

Ngane Punivai, Jack Stratton,

Josh McKay and Nick Lake leading

the charge.

In previous years, opposition

sides may have looked at Lincoln

University’s forward pack as

their only weakness. However, it

doesn’t seem to be case this

year.

“When you look at it, we have

got some experienced guys there

now. We did a good job on a

Blair. As for what kind of match

will unfold on Sunday, Blair

is confident the crowd will be

shown an exciting brand of

History favours the Crusaders in semi-final

• By Cameron McMillan

THE CRUSADERS certainly

have history on their side going

into this weekend’s Super Rugby

semi-final clash.

As seven-time champions,

they have an impressive 11

semi-final victories in their

history going into Saturday’s

clash at home against the Chiefs.

That’s the most of any Super

Rugby franchise. Nine of those

knockout victories took place

unbeaten in the semi-final stage

in Christchurch.

Something the Chiefs can take

into Saturday’s clash is that two

of the Crusaders five semi-final

defeats have been at the hands

of the Chiefs – 2012 and 2013

in Hamilton. However, neither

the Chiefs or Hurricanes have

ever won an away semi-final. The

Lions achieved their first ever

semi-final victory last season

semi-final games in 2000 and

2001 when playing as the Cats.

The most damning statistic

ahead of this week’s games is

home advantage in the semifinals.

Of the 42 Super Rugby

semi-finals played since 1996,

just eight have been won by the

away team.

If you’re thinking of a Chiefs-

Hurricanes final, consider this:

Selling your property?

First impressions count,

get rid of the clutter.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll know that getting rid of clutter

is one of the keys to selling property fast and at a good price. Good storage

systems can look cool in their own right, and help organise your clutter.

Good storage ideas are abundant and all

manner of products are available to make

homes more minimalistic. While it’s nice to buy

your storage from designer homewares stores,

the likes of The Warehouse and Kmart sell many

simple products for masking clutter. Fabric

storage cubes are a great start for disguising

the clutter. They fit neatly into shelves and

wardrobes and thanks to competition from the

big department stores, can cost $10 or less

each. You’ll also find wicker, felt, cotton, woven

and metal baskets for a song.

Another clever idea, is to buy a cheap set of

melamine shelves for use in your wardrobe. A

set of shelves does much the same job as an

expensive wardrobe fit out. You can move the

shelf heights to accommodate shoes and boots.

It looks good, but costs little.

Another wardrobe organisation is a Wardrobe

Starter Kit from Hardware stores. While you’re

there, check out bicycle storage hooks as well.

As well as being practical, storage products

can make a design statement. The important

thing is to be consistent. don’t, for example,

buy storage cubes in different colours. If you’re

looking for really clever home storage ideas

take a tip from the tiny home movement.

Catherine Foster who wrote Small House Living,

downsized her life to under 90sq m and has

interviewed Kiwis who live in architecturally

designed homes of that size or smaller.

Each and every house in Foster’s book uses

storage effectively to tame their belongings.

Some have done it on the smell of an oily rag,

sometimes buying pre-cut heavy duty plywood

that only has to be screwed together, she says.

Garages and lofts are house vendors’ friends.

The garage is one of the few places in the house

that buyers won’t be put off by a little extra

stuff, but the more that can be hidden away in

stacked crates the better. Consider using flat

pack cupboards that can be taken with you.

The most effective way of using these is to

find a wall where the whole area can be covered

floor to ceiling,”

“Simple carpentry like this is dIY level if you’re

handy, or get a handyman in for a few hours, but

make sure it is excluded from the list of chattels

on the sale agreement.”

Loft spaces are often wasted space in Kiwi

homes. A relatively cheap way to open up

the space is to install a loft ladder. You will be

amazed at what people use the additional

storage space for, once they’ve installed it.

Cheap clever storage ideas aren’t just limited

to the interior of the house, garage and loft. The

Warehouse, Mitre 10 & other hardware stores

sell garden storage to hide away things usually

left outside.

Foldable garden storage boxes that cost

from around $99 can be used to store garden

tools, outdoor cushions and pool paraphernalia.

The next step up is a cheap garden shed for

around $200 upwards from Mitre 10, Bunnings

Warehouse and other stores.

Finally, if you’re looking for more inspiration

Google “storage ideas”, search the same on

Pinterest, or check out books on the subject

from your local library. You’ll be amazed at how

many everyday items can be repurposed for

storage at the same time as adding design

excellence to your home.
