Drugs, boozing splits residents

• By Gabrielle Stuart

TENANTS AT a social housing

complex are living in fear of

other residents, who they say

are menacing, have threatened

to shoot their pets, and party

almost every night.

Some have been recently

released from prison.

But the tenants say the

trust in charge has ignored

their concerns. The Ōtautahi

Community Housing Trust took

over management of the city

council’s 2300 social houses in

October last year.

Since then, residents at the

25-unit Pickering Courts social

housing complex in Bristol St, St

Albans, say prison parolees, drugaddicts

and drunks have been

moved into the complex. Police

are regularly called.

Resident Lynda McKenzie

distributed 1000 copies of a flyer

outlining their concerns around

the neighbourhood last month.

In a recording supplied to

The Star, two tenants make

threats.

“I’ve got my rifle back, bro

. . . their f***ing dog s**t, their

cat s**t, they gonna drop dead,

motherf***ers . . . I’ve got a gun

. . . if I see it around my f***ing

number they’re dead, shot f***ing

dead,” a male voice said on the

recording.

The recording was made by

a former tenant, who told The

Star he left the complex in April

because he and his wife were

afraid for their safety.

He said the trust promised

to investigate, but the tenants

were still allowed to live there.

Trust chief executive Cate

Kearney said yesterday said two

“substantial complaints” had

been made to the trust about

issues at the complex, and said

both had been investigated

thoroughly.

WHO IS Glenn Delaney?

The new Canterbury rugby

coach, of course. And on pages

13 and 14 reporter Bridget Rutherford

talks to him in our

regular Our People environment.

A former newspaper colleague

of mine Jimmy Doyle thought

Bridget did a pretty good job

profiling Razor Robertson a few

months ago.

Bridget was put on the case

again this week to profile Robertson’s

successor, and I’m sure

Doyley will agree she’s done

another top job.

Delaney had a close run thing

with the Ranfurly Shield against

Otago but in true Canterbury

style he was never that worried

the shield was going south. For

us Cantabrians it’s all about

planning and having a never say

die attitude.

Delaney has good rugby roots

– he cut his teeth for Linwood,

probably at Linfield Park, a complex

I helped raise money for as

a kid with runathons during my

not so stunning time in a green

and black jersey.

So Doyley, I hope you enjoy

Bridget’s read. – Barry Clarke

From blockbusters to city theatre

The Hobbit,

and now

Sister Act

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

DISCO-FEVER: The cast of Sister Act dressed in sparkling

costumes designed by Lesley Burkes-Harding.

FROM DESIGNING costumes

to fit Orlando Bloom to helping

create blockbuster film sets

– John Harding and Lesley

Burkes-Harding know how to

transform a show into a full

visual experience.

Audiences will get to see an

endless stream of costumes embedded

with sequins and neo-

Gothic style sets designed by

the Akaroa couple in Showbiz

Christchurch’s latest production

of Sister Act.

Hundreds of costumes were

designed by Burkes-Harding

for the show, while her husband

created the set which has toured

all over the country.

Between them, they have 65

years of experience working in

television, consortium productions

and major films including

Avatar, King Kong and The Lord

of the Rings.

While working on The Hobbit,

Burkes-Harding designed

the costumes for Bloom in his

role as the elf Legolas.

Like most of the productions

the couple have worked on, the

design for Sister Act has been a

large undertaking.

“It is always a big job . . . there

are many hundreds of sequin

fabrics that I bought for that

show,” Burkes-Harding said.

She said in theatre, costumes

need to be sturdy and well

designed to suit the different

people who wear them.

It is similar for Harding, who

said every set he designs needs

to be “elastic” to adapt to each

venue on which it is staged.

“One of the first things was

solving how to do multiple

scene changes, so I came up

with the idea of a double conveyor

belt,” he said.

Other key elements in the set

include the use of LED lighting

to recreate the “exquisite” quality

of the stained-glass church

windows, and a narthex that he

found in a recycling yard near

Rangiora, which came from

church rubble after the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

For the couple’s next project,

they will recreate the landing

of the first French settlers in

Akaroa as part of its three-day

French Festival.

“We can work together, we

work separately. It doesn’t really

matter, it is always fun,” Burkes-

Harding said.

In Brief

CATHEDRAL DECISION

The future of the Christ Church

Cathedral will be decided on

Saturday. The Anglican Diocese’s

synod will vote on three options

for the building’s future – restore

it, knock it down and build a new

Cathedral, or gift the building to the

Government. Funding to restore the

building is on the table, including

city council’s $10 million pledge,

a $10 million Crown injection, a

$13.7 million pledge from the Great

Christchurch Buildings Trust and a

$15 million Government loan that

would not have to be paid back if

certain conditions are met.

ELECTRIC VEHICLE HIRE

An electric car sharing scheme

launched yesterday aims to

eventually make 100 cars available

at 10 hubs around the city. Twelve

Christchurch businesses, including

the city council and Environment

Canterbury, will be part of the

scheme, implemented by vehicle

management company, Yoogo.

The public will be able to hire an

electric vehicle from November at

three hubs around the city. •Lianne

Dalziel’s column, page 28

BETTER REDCLIFFS TOILETS

The lack of public toilets in

Redcliffs village is in the spotlight.

The Linwood-Coastal-Burwood

Community Board has asked city

council staff to investigate after

concerns from businesses about

the public using their facilities. The

original toilet block in the park

close to Main Rd was damaged in

the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

NEW BUSINESS MANAGER

Paul Lonsdale has taken on the

role as the Central City Business

Association manager. The role is

a part time position which will

still allow Mr Lonsdale to be New

Brighton Business and Landowners

Association manager.

ARTISTIC: John Harding was a costume designer on James Cameron’s blockbuster film Avatar. Lesley Burkes-Harding

designed costumes for actor Orlando Bloom in his role as Legalos in The Hobbit films.

RAIL FREIGHT RUNNING

The first freight services to run

again on the rail line between

Picton and Christchurch will begin

Anger leads to war at suburban

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A “LITTLE community of

misfits” – that’s how the residents

at St Albans’ Pickering Courts

social housing block describe

themselves.

The 25 units are tucked away

down a long driveway on Bristol

St, surrounded by fashionable

homes and leafy yards. If you

didn’t know it was there, you

wouldn’t find it.

For years, the Pickering Courts

residents have lived there just as

unobtrusively.

They created a garden in their

courtyard, held regular barbecues,

and even started their own

service awards, given to residents

like the elderly man who put out

everyone’s bins.

But that changed last year after

the Ōtautahi Community Housing

Trust took over management.

They now say they’re at war.

In the past year, several people

paroled from prison have been

moved in.

The other residents say the

newcomers drink and party

almost every night. Some say

they have been threatened, and

most say they no longer feel safe

at night.

ANGRY: Pickering Courts residents Lee Taylor, Dawn Sutherly and Margaret Ashby.

(Right) – Lynda McKenzie has delivered flyers outlining safety fears at the complex.

In the past few months, the

police have been called multiple

times to the units.

Last week two non-resident

males were seen wandering the

complex in their underwear.

Two weeks ago, a row of units

were vandalised with spray

paint.

One older resident had his garden

hose cut up into little pieces.

He had a history with the other

residents: Initially, he hadn’t got

along with them, but he had begun

helping out by watering the public

garden and had become a “pillar of

the community”, they said. Having

his hose cut up was something

they all took personally.

Resident Lynda McKenzie was

the first who decided to fight back.

She has lived in the block for

about 10 years and took great

pride in her little unit, which

smelled of lavender, had ivy

growing over the balcony, and

was decorated with floral wallpaper

and fairy ornaments.

She took even more pride in

the community, planting trees

there, maintaining the garden,

and organising events for the

residents.

The change made her furious.

“I don’t think I’ll ever forgive the

trust for destroying this,” she said.

She said she had contacted the

trust many times to talk about

the problems, but believed she

was being ignored.

So she wrote and printed 1000

copies of a flyer to drop at homes

around the neighbourhood last

month.

Written in bold, the headline

was: “Do you want a ghetto in

the bottom of your garden?”

“It appears the tenant of choice

of the trust is male, parolee, with

a drug/alcohol addiction,” the

flyer read.

“We no longer feel safe. We’ve

been threatened, our pets

have been threatened, and our

gardens and homes have been

vandalised. Anything not nailed

down is stolen,” it continued.

“Are you and your family safe?

Are your pets at risk? Is your

property safe and will this virtual

change of purpose of Pickering

Courts affect the VALUE of

your property?”

It finished by listing the contact

numbers of the trust chief

executive Cate Kearney, and city

councillor Vicki Buck, who is

one of the trustees.

That got a reaction from the

trust.

housing complex

On Friday, several cars pulled

up at the courts, and an “army”

of people from the trust got out –

at least eight, Ms McKenzie said.

She watched through her

windows as they dropped off

letters to each of her neighbours,

skipping her house.

When they left, one of

her neighbours gave her a

copy.

The trust was aware

that a letter had been

circulated “making allegations”

about the tenants

at Pickering Courts, the

letter said.

“Our investigations into

allegations made in the

letter have shown there is no substance

behind the issues raised,”

it read.

But several of her neighbours

have backed her up.

Tipora Grennell said he had

called the trust many times to

report problems, but said they

never called him back.

Kate Millan said she had

moved to the complex at a difficult

time in her life two years

ago, and the other residents had

really helped her.

But she said the relationships

had turned “ugly” in the past

year. She said she was often verbally

abused by other tenants and

her garden tools had been stolen,

and she was left feeling helpless to

do anything about it.

“We really are frightened to say

anything,” she said.

A former resident, who did

not want to be named,

moved out in April because

of the problems,

after less than a year in

the complex.

He said he made a

recording in February

of two of the tenants

threatening to kill other

residents’ animals.

He called the police

that night, and said they arrived

with police dogs but did not

make any arrests.

On the recording he made, two

men can be heard talking:

“I’ve got my rifle back, bro

… their f***ing dog s**t, their

cat s**t, they gonna drop dead,

motherf***ers . . . I’ve got a gun . . .

if I see it around my f***ing number

they’re dead, shot f***ing dead.”

By April it had reached the

point where he was afraid to let

his wife walk alone across the

driveway to her car, he said.

“We had a guy walking around

Tipora Grennell

Koala Grey

Corner Suite

the complex shouting at the top

of his lungs, pointing his fingers

at the apartments, acting like he

was shooting people,” he said.

He said he intervened several

times, including once when one

of the tenants had fallen on glass

and cut his face open.

“He was lying there with glass in

his face, inebriated and bleeding

like crazy. I’m up there trying to

keep him settled, with the rest of

his drunken friends trying to help

but getting in the way,” he said.

He called the police at least

six times while living there, and

complained many times to the

trust, he said.

Trust chief executive Cate

Kearney said yesterday she could

not discuss the specific incidents,

because it could compromise the

privacy of tenants.

But she said two “substantial

complaints” had been made to the

trust about issues at the complex,

and said both had been investigated

thoroughly.

She said the trust did not have

any contract with Department of

Corrections to place parolees.

She said the Pickering Courts

tenancy manager visited regularly.

“Over the past week, because

we were made aware of tenant

tenants.

communications, we have attempted

to visit every single tenant

within Pickering Court and

during those visits we received no

significant complaints,” she said.

Lee Taylor, one of the residents

the others described as a troublemaker,

was home when The Star

visited.

He admitted he had been in

trouble with police, saying they

had given him a pair of “silver

bracelets” a few weeks ago.

But one of his neighbours,

80-year-old Dawn Sutherly, stood

up for him staunchly.

“Lee’s my right-hand man,” she

said affectionately.

She had lived at Pickering

Courts for 20 years.

“When I first moved here it was

lovely. All you had to do was call

and someone would give you a

hand,” she said.

That had changed when the

new residents arrived, she said.

Another of their neighbours,

Margaret Ashby, made her way

slowly down the path to see

them. Lee gently took her arm

and helped her across the uneven

grass so she could sit in the sunshine

with them.

Hers was one of the houses

which was vandalised, which had

upset her.

But she was more upset by the

fact her neighbours were fighting,

she said.

“It shouldn’t be like this. We

should be living in peace and

harmony,” she said.

Ailing Anderton honoured

• By Bridget Rutherford

AN AILING Jim Anderton was

presented with an insignia for his

services to Parliament at a special

investiture ceremony on Sunday.

The long-standing politician

was awarded the insignia of a

Companion of the New Zealand

Order of Merit by Governor-

General Dame Patsy Reddy, after

being named on the Queen’s

Birthday Honours List in June.

A small group of family and

friends, former prime minister

and Labour Party leader Helen

Clark, and Mayor Lianne Dalziel,

were at the ceremony.

Mr Anderton, 79, is frail and

was in a wheelchair at the ceremony.

It was held at Nazareth

House, where he is now living.

Since the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, Mr Anderton and

former National MP Philip

Burdon have been campaigning

for the restoration of the Christ

Church Cathedral.

The Anglican Diocese’s synod

will vote on the Cathedral’s

future on Saturday.

Mr Burdon said Mr Anderton

was “particularly frail” due to

old age.

“He was really very frail and

there was no way he could go to

Wellington for the ceremony,”

Mr Burdon said.

“It was a very nice and moving

ceremony for someone the community

has great respect for.”

Ms Clark said it was a privilege

to be at the ceremony and she

could not think of a more deserving

recipient.

“Jim’s contribution to New

Zealand has been massive for

decades.”

Mr Anderton was MP for

Sydenham, now Wigram, from

1984 to 2011.

The seat is now held by his

hand-picked successor Labour

MP Megan Woods.

Dr Woods said she could not

attend the ceremony, but was

thrilled his contribution had

been recognised.

“I had a scheduled street corner

meeting and Jim would not

tolerate me missing a street corner

meeting or my campaign,”

she said.

“Jim’s been a huge part of

south-west Christchurch and

gave everyone hope and the

belief that politicians can make a

difference.”

Mr Anderton and his wife

Carole could not be reached for

comment.

After splitting from Labour in

1989, Mr Anderton formed two

new political parties. He held a

number of portfolios and became

deputy prime minister.

City dog owners love labradors

• By Bridget Rutherford

WILLIAM BORRIE loves his

family’s chocolate labrador Meg

– and he’s not the only one.

Meg is one of 109 labradors

registered living in Fendalton –

the most popular breed in the

suburb, and about 67 per cent of

the city.

Mr Borrie said the family

chose a labrador because a lot of

friends had them, and they were

“loyal and affectionate.”

“She was very easy to train

and easily fitted into the family

lifestyle – she’s very tolerant.”

Aged 13, Meg is now a retiree,

but still loves slow walks at the

beach and Fendalton Park.

“She has since retired but was

a clever duck retriever for many

seasons,” Mr Borrie said.

City council figures show St

Albans residents love labradors

the most, with 231 registered,

followed by 160 in Hornby, 152

in Papanui, 149 in Belfast and

Spreydon’s 148.

When it comes to the eastern

suburbs, staffordshire bull terriers

are the most popular breed.

There are 128 registered in

Linwood, 118 in Wainoni, 109

in Aranui, and 108 in New

Brighton. They are also the most

popular in North New Brighton,

North Linwood, Dallington,

Brooklands, Phillipstown and

Addington.

In Banks Peninsula’s Akaroa,

Duvauchelle, Le Bons Bay, Little

River, Motukarara and Pigeon

Bay, huntaways are the most

popular.

Border collies feature a lot in

Diamond Harbour, Okains Bay,

and Wainui.

In Southshore, North Beach

and Moncks Bay bichon frises

are the popular dog of choice,

while it’s german shepherds in

the central city and Sockburn.

For Redcliffs, it appears the

smaller jack russell terrier is the

breed of choice.

Less popular breeds registered

included dalmation, great dane,

pug, beagle, boxer, norwegian

elkhound,

shar pei,

dobermann,

leonberger and

samoyed.

When it

comes to

popular names,

Bella was the

number one

name of choice in 34 suburbs,

including Aranui, Belfast, Burwood,

Halswell, Papanui and St

Albans.

In Fendalton, Huntsbury and

upper Riccarton Ruby

was a popular name, for

Merivale, Archie was number

one, while Marley was popular

in Wainoni.

More creative names included

Princess Citana and Roach’e

in Phillipstown, Eddie Bear

Wood in St Andrews Hill, and

D’archiac in Birdlings Flat.

Body cameras

for animal

control staff

• By Bridget Rutherford

ANIMAL management officers

will get body cameras to wear when

called out to isolated areas and

volatile situations.

City council principal adviser of

regulatory compliance Claire Le

Grice said the primary reason for

introducing the cameras was for

health and safety.

The animal management staff do

encounter aggressive and agitated

people from time to time.”

She said there had been two reported

incidents this year. Once the

necessary IT support systems were

in place, staff would start using the

three cameras, she said.

Staff could activate the cameras if

they think their safety is at risk.

They will be similar to those the

city’s parking wardens have been

wearing since April last year to try

and deter verbal abuse and assaults.

The city council says the cameras

encouraged more parking wardens

to report incidents of abuse, threats

and assaults, because the footage

provided reliable evidence.

New Plymouth, Dunedin and

Wellington animal control officers

and parking wardens also use body

cameras, as do SPCA staff in Wellington.

Mandu’s mountaineering mate

• By Sarla Donovan

THERE ARE no prizes for

guessing what name residents of

Edith Cavell Lifecare in Sumner

have given this cat – Mandu.

That’s because the man

holding it in the photo above

is one of New Zealand’s best

known mountaineers. Mandu’s

name refers to Kathmandu, the

capital of Nepal.

Ninety-year-old Ed Cotter was

part of the first New Zealand

expedition to the Himalayas in

1951, along with George Lowe,

Earle Riddiford and Ed Hillary.

The inset photo above shows

him in his climbing days. His

adventures were recounted

in the 2016 book, Only Two

for Everest, written by Lyn

McKinnon.

Mr Cotter has made friends

with the handsome tomcat who

seems to have a penchant for

pensioners.

Mandu has been visiting

residents for the past six weeks

and Mr Cotter is one of his

favourites. Another is Denise

Brown, who lives in a town

house at the retirement village.

The ginger fur-ball pops in to

see her and her cat Penta.

“Cute as a bug’s ear” is how

she describes him. Edith Cavell

Lifecare manager Mary van der

Veldt said there was already

a house cat in the rest home,

which was probably enough.

She wasn’t keen on adopting

and feeding any old cat, but

didn’t mind if Mandu visited.

However, Mrs Brown wants to

Our People

Canty coach: All red and black

Glenn Delaney

Glenn Delaney is three

rounds into the Mitre

10 Cup as Canterbury’s

new coach. Bridget

Rutherford spoke to

him about the nailbiting

Ranfurly Shield

defence against Otago,

his nickname, and

sharing coaching tips

with his sister

When did you start playing

rugby?

At about age four I started

playing for Linwood. I’ve been

in the game ever since then. I

went to St Andrew’s College

and played right through there,

I played for the first XV, it was

pretty decent.

Did you play any

representative rugby through

school?

Yes, I played through Canterbury

18s, the schoolboys South

Island team, and the Canterbury

Colts. Then I went overseas

pretty early on to Japan at 19. I

ended up staying there for threeand-a-half

years. They wanted a

young lock and just got in touch

with me. I love the culture, the

food’s brilliant and I learned to

speak the language. I’m pretty

rusty now.

Where did you head from

there?

I came back and had a year in

Christchurch and played club

rugby in 1997 before I went over

to the United Kingdom. My wife,

Claire is, English. I met her in

Japan, and so I went and played

for Nottingham for a couple of

seasons.

How did you two meet?

She was up there teaching

English to Japanese school kids.

We met at a party one night, the

ex-pat community wasn’t that

big there and I fortunately ran

into her.

Where to from Nottingham?

After that I went to London

Irish (Rugby Football Club),

before returning to Christchurch.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

down to the bright lights of

London. I had three years

playing there, which was great,

and I enjoyed playing in the

premiership in England. It was

a big challenge. Then I went to

France and had my last year

playing in the top 16 there. But

I got injured and had to stop

playing. I smashed my ankle. It

was in a line-out and came down

and landed on someone’s foot. I

had to have my ankle fused and

it was impossible to play on it

again.

Was that how you came into

coaching?

I went back to Nottingham

as a player/coach, but when

I couldn’t play, the coaching

side just took over really. I had

started training to be a teacher

before I went to Japan, so that

was always part of the plan,

which is similar to coaching.

Then I went into working in

commercial recruitment so all

of a sudden things changed. I

did the Nottingham coaching

part-time for a year-and-a-half,

and they asked if I’d like to do it

full-time. I did eight years there,

which was a decent amount of

time and a lot of fun. I went

to London Irish, where I had

played, for four years after that,

and finished up there a year ago,

when this job materialised.

Why did you want to take up

the Canterbury coaching job?

Well, it’s the ultimate challenge,

it’s one of those things I’d

just love to do. Scott [Robertson]

got the Crusaders job, and I had

always kept in touch while I was

overseas so I knew what was going

on here.

Speaking of Scott Robertson,

he is well-known for his break

dancing. Do you have a party

trick like that?

No (laughs). You’ve just got to

leave some things to the professionals,

and I genuinely think

he’s a professional break dancer.

I could never even consider

competing with him as a break

dancer.

Do you have any nicknames?

Yeah, Glaxo. I got it when I

was a kid. At the time, the company

Glaxo was making baby

food, and the suggestion was

that this formula built massive

babies, and I was a big baby. It’s

stuck ever since. Pretty much

everyone calls me that.

Canterbury is a relatively

young and inexperienced team

this season. How do you make

sure the young players are up

to it?

The kids have been coming

through the structures here,

and you often wonder who’s

ever going to replace the guys

who’ve left, but Canterbury has

done that for 20 years. It’s about

making sure when those players

get the opportunity to push in

there, they’re ready. We have lost

experienced guys this year, but

young ones like Brett Cameron,

Josh McKay, Caleb Makene and

Braydon Ennor really showed

they could step up.

They showed that in the

Ranfurly Shield match against

Otago, even with a couple of

players struck down with illness.

They did. The way you get

through is you have to have a

good squad. So when we got to

that point, everyone was ready.

The best moment was Jed Brown

scoring the winning try. Initially

he wasn’t even named in the

team, but he went on, and he

turned up at the right time and

scored that try.

What went through your

mind when he scored in the

76th minute?

There’s a couple of fortuitous

things. But at times Otago scored

off errors from our side. I always

knew we had it in us to win and

we had to dig pretty deep. And

it showed the resilience the team

had, with some of our players

ruled out.

You have another shield

defence tomorrow against the

Southland Stags. Is there more

pressure in a shield match?

There’s always pressure on a

shield game, any coach would be

telling fibs if they say otherwise.

It affects people in different ways,

it’s great people feel the hope. It

creates a competition within a

competition and everyone wants

to win the shield. It’s that powerful

impact of the log of wood.

What do you want to achieve

this season?

We’ve got to make sure we’re

giving ourselves the best opportunity

to win the competition.

We’ve got to make small steps

each week to make sure we get

better, and so it allows us to keep

moving forward. You’ve got to

take care of the here and now,

and what we’re doing today and

tomorrow.

Lifelong study offers quake insights

Completely by chance, a long-running University of Otago

study into the lives of 1265 Cantabrians has become

an earthquake researcher’s dream. Study director John

Horwood spoke to Gabrielle Stuart about the latest findings

IN THE early 1970s, paediatrics

professor Fred Shannon noticed

something odd: An unusually

high number of sick children in

Christchurch Hospital wards

were from single-parent families.

That led to a bigger question:

How big an impact does a person’s

social environment have on

their health later in life?

He initially looked to undertake

a study of 200

children – but that

would not be big

enough to control

all the variables in

people’s lives. To

do that, a massive,

long-term study

John

Horwood

would be needed.

In 1977, he won

funding for the

study from the

New Zealand Medical Research

Council. He then worked to get

permission from 1251 sets of

parents to study babies born in

Christchurch that year.

This year, those babies turn 40.

And again this year, for the 23rd

time, they are sitting down with

strangers to discuss the most

intimate details of their lives.

They have been asked about

their deepest fears and struggles,

physical or sexual abuse

they have suffered, their drug or

alcohol abuse, their health, their

relationships and their finances.

By this time next year, the

researchers hope the information

they have gathered will answer

big questions around how people

have been affected by the earthquakes.

Has experiencing the earthquakes

helped or harmed people’s

jobs and careers?

Do people in Christchurch

have worse physical health now

than people living elsewhere?

What makes some people

“naturally resilient” – those who

have dealt with huge stress or

challenges, yet seem to escape

the expected health and wellbeing

struggles? Have people

been able to get help when they

need it, and who has missed out?

And in the future, what impact

will the earthquake stress have

on people’s relationships? On

their long-term finances? On

when they die?

Those long-term impacts of

a disaster had historically been

very difficult to measure, Mr

Horwood said. That was partly

STILL HERE: More than six years on from the earthquakes, researchers are still discovering the

toll it has taken on Cantabrians, mentally and physically.

because people tended to scatter

after a disaster, moving to or

away from the area, he said.

But when they contacted the

participants after the earthquakes,

in 2012, they discovered

543 of them – at that point, just

over half the participants – had

experienced the earthquakes.

The rest had been living somewhere

else and they became a

perfect control group.

The first thing the researchers

did was create a measure of the

impact of the earthquakes on

people.

Firstly, the immediate impact

during the earthquakes: The

damage to the building the person

was in, whether objects were

falling down around them, and

how afraid they felt at the time.

Then the aftermath: The housing

repairs or insurance they dealt

with, and the disruption to their

work, family, community and

routines.

For people classed as having

a high level of exposure to the

earthquakes – those who were

hit hardest – the initial 2012

interview found they were 1.4

times more likely to be dealing

with a mental disorder than people

living outside Christchurch.

Over the past 40 years, the

participants had helped them

understand a huge amount, he

said. In the first years alone, it

proved smoking while pregnant

or around babies left them less

healthy and more prone to

respiratory illnesses; found ties

between learning difficulties and

exposure to lead; and helped

shape Government policies helping

disadvantaged children.

Many of the questions asked as

the children became adults were

deeply personal.

They found about 30 per

cent of women and six per cent

of men had been exposed to

some kind of sexual abuse as

a child. They found that had a

measurable impact on people’s

relationships and mental health

as adults.

Sometimes the people involved

in the study said they had never

talked to anyone before about

what they were facing, he said.

That could be difficult at times

for the interviewers, he said.

The study is designed to be

non-interventive, so we go out

and gather information. We

would never intervene unless an

individual asks for help. We are

an independent observer in their

life,” he said.

He hoped the study would

continue for as long as it could

– although as the participants

got older it would one day reach

a point where too few were still

around, he said.

And Prof Shannon’s initial

theory about single parents?

One of the first things the

study did was prove that wrong,

Mr Horwood said. “To single out

single parents as being the problem

is utterly ridiculous. But it is

indicative of other problems and

difficulties those families might

be experiencing.”

BREAST CANCER patients are

wearing Fitbits to record their

activity in a University of Otago,

Christchurch, study exploring the

impact of exercise on responses to

chemotherapy.

The pilot study of 40 Canterbury

women is being done by Pathology

post-graduate student Rebekah

Crake. She is doing her PhD at the

campus’ Mackenzie Cancer Research

Group, which includes oncologists,

geneticists and laboratory scientists.

Miss Crake said the Canterbury

women’s physical activity will be

tracked during their chemotherapy

treatment. Data from the Fitbits will

be compared to the women’s response

to chemotherapy to see if any trends

emerge.

The basic idea behind the study

is that inflammation can decrease

activity of the liver. Exercise can

reduce inflammation in the liver, and

the liver needs to be working well to

metabolize chemotherapy drugs.”

Miss Crake said overseas research

suggested people who were physically

active had a better quality of life, were

less likely to have their cancer return

after treatment and were more likely

to survive the disease.

She began recruiting patients

from the Canterbury District Health

Board’s oncology service in March

this year. She hopes to have results

from the study by the end of 2019.

“If we can show a trend in data that

the women who exercised more had

better response to chemotherapy, it

could warrant a larger study, with

more people and women doing

different levels of exercise, to understand

in greater detail the physical

activity needed to make a difference.

It’s pretty exciting to be involved in

a project that could potentially help

people improve their outcomes.”

Miss Crake’s pilot trial includes

women of normal weight and those

Family’s house in midst of shoddy

Monday marked

seven years since the

first earthquake hit

Canterbury. Since then,

thousands of homes have

been razed and tens of

thousands more repaired.

Or have they? Lawyers

and experts believe

Christchurch is sitting on a

multi-billion dollar ticking

time bomb. Kurt Bayer

reports

KEN AND Lucy Palepoi felt like

they’d won Lotto. Owning their

own home before they’d even

turned 30. Two kids, a third on

the way.

As soon as they moved in in

2015, they hung a picture. “Being

able to put a nail in the wall, in

your own wall. That felt pretty

good,” Ken says.

The 1940s character home,

with its stucco cladding and

rounded edges, was perfect for

the young family who’d just

moved to Christchurch from

Dunedin for work opportunities.

And it was paying off.

The Woolston home needed

PHOTO: KURT BAYER

some attention, but they were

happy to chip away, when they

could afford it.

“Everything pointed to this

house having really good bones,”

Lucy says.

They paid above market value.

Earthquake repairs were already

organised – some were already

done, they were told. Exterior

plasterwork cracking, minor

cosmetic stuff. To be on the

safe side, the Palepois got the

Earthquake Commission deed of

assignment.

But months went on and

nobody came. Lucy, stay-athome

mum, chased up EQC.

Finally, an assessor arrived. It

was deemed a $30,000 patch-up

job. EQC passed over the money

and the Palepois got plasterers to

size up the job.

One quoted $42,000 but

wouldn’t guarantee his work

until the 70-year old foundations

were looked at. Cracks there

were dismissed as minor by EQC

assessors. Pre-1970s foundations

were suddenly a major issue for

Christchurch homeowners.

The 2016 Valentine’s Day

quake “reopened a spider’s web

of cracks”, Lucy says. Windows

wouldn’t shut properly.

It was clear the damage was

more than cosmetic. “I hounded

EQC,” Lucy says. “I’d phone

them and play nice. I’d phone

them and cry. I’d phone them

and yell.”

Last December, they finally

got another EQC assessment.

It returned grim findings. One

corner of the house is sinking.

The property needs lifting up,

so workers can dig 4m deep to

find solid ground to build new

foundations.

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.

earthquake repair debacle

The repairs will soar past the

EQC repair cap of $100,000. After

that, it goes to their insurance

company. But the insurer’s policy

in such situations is to pay the indemnity

value of repairs because

of the home’s wear and tear. The

rest falls with the Palepois. And

now, their lawyers.

“We were so naive,” Lucy says.

“We just thought we’d

done everything right. Being

vigilant by getting the deed of

assignment. Nothing pointed to

repairs even remotely going over

cap.

“Anyone buying a house in

Christchurch needs to know.

Even if the repairs have been

signed off, if it’s a shoddy repair

job, then they’re left with a

massive bill or a house worth

nothing.”

And this is just the tip of the

iceberg.

After the earthquakes, Bevan

Craig spent hours wandering

through the cracked and twisted

residential red zone.

Entire eastern subdivisions

were wrecked. More than 7200

homes would eventually be

razed, leaving a rough, barren

wasteland where grasses would

Christchurch on February 22, 2011. PHOTO: BRETT PHIBBS

slowly sprout behind wire fences.

As a house foundation specialist,

Mr Craig had a professional

interest in what lay beneath all

homes there.

Many Christchurch houses

built before the 1970s had rubble

foundations – stone in different

grades of concrete, aggregate and

plaster. The rest of New Zealand

stopped using the method in the

1920s.

Mr Craig became concerned the

cracks seen in these foundations

were being too quickly repaired by

EQC. Epoxy resin or waterproof

filler was used to patch them up.

Often the damage was assessed as

being old, pre-quakes.

The problem never went away.

LIVABLE: A sign outside a Christchurch home.

Out of a total of 26,879 domestic

over-cap claims, 384 are unresolved.

Insurers have paid out

$20.1 billion on the staggeringly

high 142,346 domestic claims

and 26,248 commercial claims

in Canterbury as of June 30 this

year.

Through his independent

house insurance assessment firm

Underfoot Services, Mr Craig

has worked with 9000 homeowners

over the past six years. He

estimates as many as 60,000

pre-1970s houses may have been

incorrectly assessed and repaired.

The majority of people who have

these homes are sitting on ticking

time bombs,” he says.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

The Star

News

There are hundreds, if not thousands,

Documents released in June

under the Official Information

Act revealed EQC accepted there

were around 11,500 claims relating

to botched repairs. Many

were minor, others land and

drainage claims. As of June 30,

EQC says it was down to managing

2764 call-back repairs, as

well as 1011 underfloor

repairs.

EQC stresses

it’s important

that in the wider

context, it received

more than

469,000 claims

for the 2010 and

Tim Grafton

2011 quakes.

“Our policy is to ensure that

all customers receive their full

entitlement for any loss or damage

that was directly caused by a

natural disaster,” an EQC spokesman

says.

“This has been our approach

since the Canterbury earthquakes

and any homeowner who

believes that their foundations

may have earthquake-related

damage can discuss their situation

with EQC.

“Many homes in Canterbury

were built before 1970 and had

foundation damage or structural

weakness that was there before

the earthquakes. It is not uncommon

for their foundations

to be damaged due to causes

other than an earthquake, such

as cracking caused by natural

drying shrinkage, weathering, as

well as corrosion of reinforcing

materials.

There are repair solutions

available for repairing houses and

foundations and each is assessed

individually. Once a decision

is made to undertake a repair,

then the work must meet the

requirements of all of the relevant

legislation, including the EQC

Act.”

But Andrew Hooker of Shine

Lawyers believes there are

“hundreds, if not thousands, of

seriously botched repairs.”

“When I say seriously botched,

I mean repairs that were EQC

patched-up cracks in foundations

and a proper assessment reveals

the entire foundation is stuffed,

so you’re talking $300,000-

$500,000 repair jobs. The scale

is massive. There are potentially

billions of dollars at stake.”

WRECKED:

Dozens of

claims have

been filed

in the High

Court in the

last week.

Mr Hooker has more than 50

clients in situations similar to

the Palepois. But with time – or

indeed more shaking like last

year’s magnitude 5.7 Valentine’s

Day jolt – homeowners notice

that “things aren’t quite as they

should be.”

“So EQC admits: ‘Yep we

stuffed your repairs up, here’s

$100,000, which is our limited

liability under the EQC Act

(Earthquake Commission Act

1993).’ And I say: ‘No, you stuffed

up these people’s houses, you

need to pay the lot’,” Mr Hooker

says.

And that will fall back on the

taxpayer.

Dozens of claims from people

in situations similar to the Palepois

have been filed in the High

Court in the last week. More will

come in the following weeks.

The Insurance Council of

New Zealand has previously told

Cantabrians the main residential

private insurers would not rely on

the Limitations Act before September

4, 2017 – the seven-year

anniversary of the magnitude

7.1 tremor that sparked the devastating

2010-2011 Canterbury

earthquake sequence.

There are different interpretations

of how the Act applies, and

individual insurers and EQC,

have taken a range of positions.

ICNZ chief executive Tim

Grafton says there is no need for

homeowners to rush to court and

incur costs to protect their legal

position. “You can simply make a

call to your insurer to understand

its position on its Limitation Act

rights in relation to your claim.”

Lawyers, insurance advocates,

and homeowners interviewed are

worried, however, they’ll be left

to foot the bill of quake-damaged

homes if they don’t act now.

Fire rages, homes at risk

“We’re filing proceedings in

court saying that the insurer and/

or EQC have not repaired the

house to policy standards, and/or

that the repairs are defective

. . . and to get a ruling on whether

EQC has to pay the lot,” says

Hooker, whose firm filed “about

50” proceedings in the past few

days. In the next few months, he

expects “possibly two to three

times that amount.”

“Time is ticking on and EQC

and insurers will be able to rely

on things like the Limitation

Period if people aren’t careful. By

then it’s too late and they can’t

sue anyone.

“It has been seven years, so imagine

how many homes that have

had botched repairs have since

been sold and people moved on

and changed their lives.

“People in the rest of New

Zealand have no idea how big the

problem is.”

Law firm Anthony Harper has

filed two proceedings where insurance

companies have refused

to defer reliance on a Limitation

Act defence after today. Both the

claims are with the insurer, not

EQC.

“However, we are drafting

many more proceedings, for

clients who only have extensions

from their insurer to October 2,

of seriously botched repairs’

2017. A number of these claims

are still with EQC and have not

yet been passed to the insurer,”

says Lisa Taylor, senior associate

at Anthony Harper.

Labour has pledged to commit

to a Royal Commission of

Inquiry into EQC to “get to the

bottom of many issues Cantabrians

have faced in recent years”

– a call supported by Hooker and

Bourke.

Labour also promised to

establish an arbitration tribunal

with an inquisitorial focus as an

alternative pathway for claimants,

EQC and insurers to resolve

disputes.

ICNZ rubbished the arbitration

Duncan

Webb

Gerry

Brownlee

service proposal as a “misconceived,

poorly thought through

seat-of-the-pants policy that runs

roughshod over natural justice”,

claiming the existing system,

including the legal system, does

enough to resolve insurance

claims.

Labour’s Christchurch Central

candidate Duncan Webb questioned

why ICNZ would be “so

defensive and negative” towards

something that looks to be a way

to resolve “nightmarish situations

for so many people.”

Former Canterbury Earthquake

Recovery Minister Gerry

Brownlee has repeatedly backed

the work of EQC. During an election

debate last week he provoked

a chorus of boos when he labelled

it a “roaring success.”

Mel Bourke, of earthquake

claimant advocacy group EQC

Fix, bought a repaired St Albans

rental property in February last

year only to find the repairs were

sub-standard.

Grasping for solutions and trying

to understand her rights, she

was stunned there was no group

to represent the homeowners and

help with key decisions.

“It doesn’t matter if you’re a

surgeon or a solo mum, when

you ride through a [magnitude] 7

or 6 earthquake and your home

is destroyed, you know nothing

about insurance and you know

nothing about insurance law.

“You’re emotionally devastated

and you’re vulnerable. There is so

much you need to know to make

sure your claim is not mishandled.

“Your home is your one place

where you want to feel safe from

the world, and the insurance

companies and the Government

are taking the fight into your

living room and you have no

escape.”

In April last year, a group of

98 homeowners won a landmark

High Court settlement that confirmed

EQC is obliged to repair

homes to a “when new” standard.

But more people are coming

forward all the time.

There are so many people

here, as homes change hands,

as people delve into things a bit

more, who are finding failed

EQC repairs and they just don’t

know where to start. We’re contacted

with people like that every

month and it’s heartbreaking,”

Bourke says.

“For every home that EQC has

cash settled, every home they’ve

touched, every home they’ve

forced under the cap, then the

New Zealand Government

should be accountable or liable to

put right.

“If a volcano hits Auckland,

they’re just as vulnerable as us.

People don’t understand that it’s

one thing to have an insurance

policy, it’s completely different for

an insurer to pay a claim.”

No place for

dinosaur-style politics

YOU CAN feel it on the doorsteps and

at the street corner meetings. Excitement

is growing about this election.

I haven’t seen people so engaged

with an election for a very long time.

Jacinda’s name is never far from the

conversation along with a twinkle in

the eye and a prediction that Labour’s

going to do this. Labour is putting up

a clear alternative for New Zealand

and people are deciding which vision

and policies they think are best for our

future.

This is what makes Steven Joyce’s

false claim about Labour’s budget this

week so disappointing. Hoping to

derail Monday night’s debate, Joyce

came out and said Labour’s budget

numbers didn’t add up and there was

a hole. Turns out the only hole was the

one Joyce was digging for himself. One

after another, New Zealand’s leading

experts came out and said this was

plain wrong.

The only people backing up Steven

Joyce were Steven Joyce and Bill

English.

HERITAGE

HOUSE TOUR

Sunday, 15 October, 2017

10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Six Christchurch Heritage

Properties, recovered from the

earthquakes

Tickets Essential – $25

available from Paper Plus Merivale

A tour in support of the Ngaio Marsh Heritage House,

a Category 1 Historic Place.

I don’t buy that our Minster of

Finance can’t make his way around a

set of numbers. This was a political hit,

not based on facts, but aimed at creating

confusion with voters. I have no

respect for this kind of politics.

Caught in the middle of a childish

chorus of “he said, she said” people

inevitably reach for the political mute

button. This is the kind of bickering

that is causing people to turn off politics

and has no place in New Zealand.

The people I am talking to all over

Wigram are impressed by Jacinda and

Labour’s positive vision for Christchurch

and New Zealand. They want

to discuss health, the environment,

education and housing. We’re out there

trying to inspire voters, not turn them

off.

The dinosaur-style of politics on

display from Joyce and National this

week that seeks to confuse and to stop

this conversation has no place in this

election.

Hospital from possible

demolition has taken

the battle right to the

top – writing to Queen

support

Scotty Wilson – Why?

Replace it with a modern

first-world facility that the

people of Canterbury actually

deserve.

Pamela Neil – A hospital

is needed there. Just get

started with a (renovation) or

a rebuild. Looks like another

Cathedral debacle.

Rebecca Hitchcock

– I’ve said this to friends but

with there being such a baby

boom at the moment, why

isn’t part of this hospital used

as postnatal care? Especially

with Burwood no longer

having birthing or aftercare

available. Being a larger space

it could be set up quite nicely

and mums could find a lot of

support from each other as

well as nurses. Just a thought.

Cheryll Eddy – What

have those in the building

industry had to say about the

structural state of the building?

If it’s not worth keeping

but better off rebuilding, can’t

part of it be kept as a symbol

of what was there? I’m all for

preserving what we can of

our old buildings but we do

have to be practical. At the

end of the day it is brick an

mortar and can be replaced.

Remove sentiment from the

equation and look at what is

going to last. Why patch-up

patch-ups and spend millions

on that when it would be

more cost-effective long term

to rebuild?

Helen Baker – PMH is a

beautiful building, it would

be a crime to demolish it.

Going into the future, we

may need it with the population

growing and the main

hospital with its parking

woes. If PMH was earthquake

strengthened it could be used

for apartments with the lower

ground floor a medical centre

Owen McCaffrey –

Doesn’t look much like a

heritage building but would

be keen to have a new owner

do repairs and make it look

even more heritage. Like a

hotel, conference centre or

Government building.

Jon Mitchell – Please.

It is a complete liability. Just

take it down and replace it

with something safe, attractive

THERE’S NO doubt about it,

Cantabrians are passionate rugby

supporters, particularly when it

comes to the mighty Crusaders.

And for many, when thinking

about our new stadium,

that’s what comes to mind —

Super Rugby and All Blacks test

matches.

But the reason this anchor

project is being described as a

multi-use arena is because it

needs to be so much more than a

rugby union ground.

While the ultimate configuration

is up to the city council and

the community, the Government’s

preferred option is a

30,000 capacity arena with a

fully closed roof and retractable

pitch. This type of facility will be

capable of attracting a wide range

of sports, entertainment and

hosting events.

Other sporting codes are

already seeing its potential. Just

last week the Manly Sea Eagles

committed to playing at least

two national rugby league home

games in Christchurch over the

next couple of years.

But it gets even better, Manly

chief executive Neil Bare says he

Nicky Wagner

Stadium needs to cater

for more than rugby

sees the club being a real partner

in the city’s redevelopment and

rebuild, with the relationship

lasting “10-years-plus.”

Manly games will be a welcome

addition to our sporting calendar

and will highlight the city’s

willingness and enthusiasm for

hosting such events.

A multi-use arena is designed

to be a central hub capable of

bringing the community together

and invigorating the wider region.

The more flexible the venue

is, the more opportunities we’ll

have.

This facility must be an asset

for Christchurch, Canterbury

and New Zealand. That means

generating revenue, but it also

means embracing innovative

trends and new technologies.

Internationally, there are some

great examples of venues that are

so much more than stadiums.

These facilities can be patronised

seven days a week in exciting new

ways. And, if we think about it

creatively, we can do something

spectacular here too.

Leading the way with car sharing

YESTERDAY, we announced a

world-leading electric car sharing

scheme for Christchurch, which

will be under way in November.

Initiated by the city council, it

has brought together the public

sector, private businesses and our

city’s residents as well, to share in

the new technologies which will

become standard in the future.

A few months ago, after a competitive

tender, the city council

selected vehicle management

company, Yoogo, as our partner

to develop an electric car sharing

scheme and together we have

turned a dream into a reality.

But the partnership has

delivered more than we had

even dreamed.

The fact that the scheme

includes residents takes this

scheme to the next level before

it’s even off the ground.

Christchurch is demonstrating

strong leadership in innovation

and carbon emission reduction

by being the first city in New

Zealand, and one of the few cities

internationally, that has a 100 per

cent battery electric car sharing

service.

When you think about this in

the context of the autonomous

e-shuttle being trialled at Christchurch

International Airport and

other initiatives that are coming

our way, you can see what an

important role Christchurch is

Angela Toomey – I am

sorry, but from what I have

read to date, the hospital needs

extensive repair and would be

best pulled down and rebuilt in

the same place.

Annmarie Bradford – Turn

structurally sound? Would make

some sense to turn her into

apartments.

In terms of the electric car

With city council working on

on assessing power supply

for each potential car

like to thank Orion for working

with city council, and now with

Yoogo, on this important aspect

of the scheme.

I would like to give special

thanks to Yoogo for coming onboard

for Christchurch.

And I would like to acknowledge

$1m prize for

Golden Oldies

hole-in-one

TWENTY GOLFERS will have

the chance to play for $1 million

in a hole-in-one shootout on the

final day of next year’s Golden

Oldies World Golf Festival week.

The shootout will be held on

April 13. A 150m purpose-made

hole will be prepared next to the

Golden Oldies Festival marquee

in Hagley Park.

The 20 qualifying golfers will be

made up of eight qualifiers picked

from the four rounds of golf

played earlier in the week.

If more than one golfer shoots a

hole in one, the prize money will

be split. Each person will only

have one shot at the prize, with no

AFTER MONTHS of work, it

took just the flick of a switch to

bring the Christchurch Casino

Lights hidden in the walls

washed the building in colour,

the entrance lit up and lights on

the roulette wheel on top of the

building began to spin.

Last week,

Aotea Electric

the national

Council NZ

lighting award

for the project,

Robbie

Venrooy

which it created

and installed at

Christchurch

Casino last year.

Servicing manager Robbie

Venrooy said seeing the

building light up for the first

time was a spectacular moment

– but a nervous one too.

“It was all tested beforehand,

because the managers were

all there watching, so it had

to work,” he said. “To see

it all turned on was pretty

spectacular. It was amazing to

see the colour change from red,

to blue, to orange. It’s come

alive.”

He said it was one of the

more challenging projects the

Christchurch team had taken

on.

Movement of the building

during the earthquakes meant

the walls were no longer

straight, so the lighting had

to be custom built and fitted.

Some of the lighting had to be

installed by an abseiler.

The plan also included a 2min

light show, programmed to play

every half hour, and lighting

colours which could be changed

and customised for different

events.

To make it more difficult,

it all had to be done over two

months while the casino was

still operating.

“A lot of the work was done

at night and in all weather. The

boys were out working even in

the rain,” Mr Venrooy said.

The project was designed by

Kevin Cawley Lighting, and

created by Aotea Electric liaison

Gardening

Take time out to

plant popular lettuce

• By Henri Ham

SPRING IS officially here.

It’s the busiest time of the year

in the garden and one plant to

get in now is lettuce.

It’s not surprising lettuce is

a popular plant to grow at this

time of year.

They grow well in these

conditions and, in my opinion,

there’s just something about the

warmer weather that makes you

want to enjoy salad.

It’s funny now to think that

back in the day we used to

Durable magnolias make a statement

MAGNOLIAS AND michelia

are in full flurry now, laden

with delicate-looking waxy

blooms that are a lot more

durable than you would think.

Both of these species cope

easily with frost, wind and rain.

These are real statement

harvest the whole lettuce when

it was ready.

Those were the days when iceberg

was all the rage. But now,

as most of us know, with many

of the types of lettuce you can

just pick off the leaves you need

at the time and leave the plant

growing.

Probably the hardest part

about growing lettuce is deciding

which type to plant. That’s

why I’m a big fan of growing a

couple of several varieties.

Once you’ve got your lettuce

seedlings look for somewhere

trees and shrubs, and ideal

choices to plant in areas where

you want a focal point.

Soil-wise they cope with

just about anything but

pure sand or thick clay. As

long as they can anchor

themselves into some heavy

well-drained and sheltered to

plant them. If you don’t have

much space, try growing them

in pots or even hanging baskets.

The great thing about growing

them in containers is you

can make them easily accessible

to your kitchen.

When you’ve found the right

spot to plant, dig a little hole

and plant each seedling around

20cm apart.

Try not to overcrowd your

seedlings to prevent fungal

diseases.

Watch out for slugs.

ground they seem to thrive.

Pruning is best done after

flowering and only if required.

Give them a side-dressing

of general garden fertiliser

this month and mulch

the root zones to keep the

roots cool over summer.

SALAD: Pick off a leaf

or two and your lettuce

plant will keep growing.

Theatre/Arts

A Greek tragedy for the new age

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A VIOLENT Greek tragedy and

dark music will be combined to

create a “feast for the eyes” in

a bid to get younger audiences

interested in ancient culture and

opera music.

The Oresteia Experience, an

opera with music by late Russian

composer, Sergei Taneyev, is set

to premiere in New Zealand for

the first time on Sunday. It will

be presented by Canterbury University’s

school of music.

The man behind getting the

opera off the ground is musical

director and conductor Mark

Menzies.

It is the second time the

49-year-old will conduct the

show after first doing so in Los

Angeles in 2011 with the California

Institute of the Arts.

“To a young audience member,

it is not going to be like a normal

opera of the 19th-century or even

20th-century music,” he said.

The Sumner resident describes

the show as provocative, dramatic

and, at times, painful and

frightening, with a lot of implied

violence.

He believes young people

would be more affected by implied

violence.

•Check out The Oresteia

Experience on Sunday,

6.30pm, at the Christchurch

Arts Centre’s Great Hall. To

book tickets, visit

www.artsfestival.co.nz

The opera is a trilogy of Greek

tragedies set in the aftermath of

the invasion of Troy.

It is based on the murder of

Agamemnon by Clytemnestra,

the murder of Clytemnestra by

Orestes, the trial of Orestes, and

the interference of Athena, goddess

of wisdom, to stop the cycle

of killing.

The show will feature a choir

made up of both Canterbury

University students and performers

from the community, as well

as music from the Christchurch

Symphony Orchestra.

While Menzies is now based at

Canterbury University as head

of performance at the school of

music, his career as a chamber

musician, pianist, conductor,

viola and violinist has seen him

perform all over the world.

Some of his highlights included

performing at Carnegie Hall

in New York City nine times.

The hall is considered one of

the most prestigious venues in

the world for classical music.

Having grown up in Hawkes

Bay before studying music at

Canterbury University in the

1980s, Menzies said living in a

small city helped him succeed at

his music.

Following his studies, he travelled

to England where he lived

for four years, before moving

to the United States, where he

became a permanent resident.

But Menzies does not see

returning to Christchurch as a

step back.

“When I was a kid, New Zealand

was the place to leave if you

were in the arts . . . it doesn’t have

to be that way,” he said.

He said the key is making the

city a destination for people to

stay, which he see’s as his task.

Visit ‘Crocodile Hunter’s’ legacy

• By Mike Yardley

SHOWPIECE: The Crocoseum at Australia Zoo is enthralling.

QUEENSLAND’S Sunshine

Coast offers a flavourful spoil of

family-friendly experiences, albeit

at a far more relaxed pace than

the head-rush of the Gold Coast.

Hop-scotch your way around

the compact region’s assortment

of sights on a self-drive family

roadie.

The legacy of Steve Irwin

palpably lives on at Australia Zoo,

where his wife Terri and children,

Bindi and Robert, live and work.

I had the pleasure of interviewing

Steve and Terri several times

on Newstalk ZB before tragedy

struck a decade ago. His largerthan-life

TV persona wasn’t a case

of playing for the cameras. In

person, that exuberant charm and

passion was just as infectiously

electric.

From humble beginnings in

the 1990s, the Irwin family have

worked hard to make Australia

Zoo a world class conservation

facility, in addition to its magnetic

appeal as a tourist attraction. It’s

the intimacy of the animal encounters

which makes Australia

Zoo such a novel wildlife experience.

Like all good Aussie wildlife

parks, you can hand-feed kangaroos

and cuddle a koala. Then

there’s the up-close experiences

with red pandas, otters, wombats,

giraffes and spiky echidnas.

The Australia Zoo roving wildlife

team also serves up spontaneous

photo-posing opportunities,

with a veritable menagerie of

wildlife, including dingoes, bluetongue

lizards, skinks, pythons,

alligators, macaws and cockatoos.

You can be a zoo keeper for a

day and go behind-the-scenes to

get up close with the animals. But

the ultimate walk on the wild side

would have to be the opportunity

to take a cheetah or a tiger for a

walk. Seriously.

Book a hands-on encounter

and you’ll be contributing to

the zoo’s various projects geared

at protecting wildlife, from the

jungles of Sumatra to the savannahs

of Africa.

The newest attraction is Bindi’s

Island, built around her threestorey

treehouse, where the ringtailed

lemurs are the big showstealer.

Steve had just started the

excavation work for Bindi’s dream

treehouse, when he passed away.

But the showpiece attraction is

Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors,

which roars into life at noon in

the Crocoseum. It begins with the

free-flight birds of prey that wheel

and swoop around the arena

before the jaw-snapping drama of

the ginormous saltwater crocodiles

steal the show.

It’s instructive, enlightening and

utterly enthralling. Just like Steve

himself, whose spirit seems to live

on loudly and proudly throughout

this wondrous celebration

of wildlife. www.australiazoo.

Treat your kids to the delights

of Yandina, a charming subtropical

town and home to The Ginger

Factory. In 1941, Buderim Ginger

set about producing confectionery

ginger and 75 years on,

they remain the world’s biggest

producer.

Alongside the production, the

Ginger Factory is swooned over

by families for its boutique theme

park-style assortment of attractions.

I joined a Factory Tour

which was brilliantly led by Kelly,

bringing to life Buderim Ginger’s

backstory and concluding with a

fabulous product tasting session.

Don’t miss the ice creamery

and a scoop or two of ginger biscuit

and ginger cinnamon.

I hopped on board Moreton,

the factory’s beloved 115-year

old ginger train which tootles

through the property’s lush, leafy

and impeccably maintained tropical

gardens.

The Ginger Factory has also

branched out and embraced

honeybee production, and their

Super Bee educational tours are

absolutely riveting, complete with

honey tasting.

I finished my frolic through

the Ginger Factory by joining the

signature family ride, Overboard,

which follows the Gingerbread

man, around the world. This

meandering water adventure ride,

which is unmistakably reminiscent

of Disney’s It’s a Small World

ride, is delightfully presented and

even includes animatronic rugby

players performing a haka. www.

gingerfactory.com.au

The Yandina-Coolum Rd provides

a short hop from the Ginger

Factory to the sun-splashed,

seaside haven of Coolum. Bookended

by rocky headlands and

secluded coves, Coolum Beach is

a magnet for water lovers, with its

long stretch of golden sand and

rolling surf.

If your family is up for a sweaty

work-out, follow David Low Way

south of town, and hike up Mt

Coolum, for celestial views across

the coastline. The café society is

buzzy in Coolum, with some sizzling

beachfront nosh spots, none

more so than the Coolum Surf

Club. The Mooloolaba Prawn and

Avocado Salad is my pick.

Directly across the road, the

Coolum Caprice is a supreme

holiday roost, with ultra-spacious

self-contained apartments, overlooking

the Norfolk Palms fringing

the patrolled area of Coolum

Beach.

All apartments are equipped

with private balconies and those

sublime ocean views. Fully selfcontained

with open-plan living

and dining areas, cook up a storm

in your fully equipped kitchen,

while the in-room laundry facilities

are another welcome attribute.

SUN AND SURF: Coolum

Beach is a magnet for water

lovers. Left: Take a tour of the

This year is extremely special for the St

against 58 other teams from around New

The team is not sure what to expect and

hard, pools of 10 and

the top 2 go through

to the next round.

We are playing some

bigger than our whole

school. Most of the St

so have the potential to

perform on the national

stage. The team live

and breathe football at

Sponsored by:

they went undefeated in the games they

played. They have dominated a Catholic

school tournament scoring over 50 goals and

conceding only 1 in a tournament. The Juniors

have been watching the First X1 during most

games and several of the boys have said they

love watching and supporting, there big aim

was to wear the First X1 jersey one day. Ryan

Nelsen I am sure would be proud with the

development of football at the college.

Captain George Campbell said

is so excited about heading

away and being part of a great

team.

The team has received

generous sponsorship from KSI

Architectural Cladding and each

boy has had to find a sponsor

for the paper which we really

appreciate.

Jacob Allen states that football

has come a long way since he

was the captain of the first X1 in

2009 and said how lucky all the

players are today to experience

Football in New Zealand.

the Minor Premiership and then losing the grand final

in a penalty shoot-out. It’s the first time in the colleges

history that the side has won the minor premiership and

only the second time the side has been seeded number

1 in the region for the premier tournament. St Thomas’s

has only made the premier tournament 5 times in its

history and this is the second time in 3 years so the

programme is working. The team consists of 8 year

11s and 1 year 9 and the rest being year 12/13 which

is extremely exciting for the future. Captain Michael

White who has been in the team since 9 is stoked to

get another crack at Premier tournament, He says this

is the best team he has played with at the college and

excited about tournament. Several of the team made

the Canterbury United youth squad and NZ secondary

schools Trials which is a huge confidence boast. Coach

Jacob Allen says it’s a privilege to look after a talented

bunch of young men who always play their heart out for

the jersey. The school league proved to be a competitive

competition which made each game extremely tough

and made us better throughout the league. The school

have been selected

as touch judges in the

Saturday night for

the sudden-death

final between

“Both Kasey and Belinda

developed out of our Women In

League Officiating Programme,”

NRL referees boss Tony Archer

said.

“And they have both been

progressing extremely well.

They were both touch judges in

this year’s representative round.

Kasey officiated in the final

Country-City match at Mudgee,

while Belinda became the first

female to officiate in a test match

when she was touch judge for the

Tonga-Fiji match.

They have

both refereed in

the Holden Cup

well as the State

“But, importantly for us, they

have earned their selection based

solely on their performance as

touch judges this season.

They are not part of a

women’s programme – they are

simply part of our overall emerging

referees squad. Their development

is on track with what we

would expect from our emerging

SALE

Mercedes GLA180

forms its own market

• By Ross Kiddie

MERCEDES-Benz’s

popular GLA range has just

been through a substantial

generation change.

Even though the midsize

crossover/sport utility

vehicle retains its original

concept, the shape is a little

more rounded and curvy,

and it gets bold frontal

treatment characterised by

an aggressive new grille.

The newcomer also gets a

specification upgrade and a

cosmetic tidy-up inside.

Four models sit in the

GLA range, there’s the

entry-level 180 this evaluation

focuses on at $60,900,

a 220d at $67,900, a 250

4Matic at $80,000 and

the car popular with the

young generation and

sport-minded drivers – the

AMG45 at $109,700.

I’m due to drive the latter

soon, but in the interim

the GLA180 is still an

impressive hatchback/estate

which, in respect to its

design, is a car that really

forms its own part of the

market.

At just under 4.5m it isn’t

big, although its liftback

rear exposes a healthy load

space and the rear seat

compartment offers comfortable

room for three.

At the other end sits a

1.6-litre, turbocharged

four-cylinder engine, it is

rated at 90kW and 200Nm.

Like most manufacturers

these days, Mercedes-Benz

utilise its turbocharging

techniques not only as a

method of boosting power

outputs to healthy levels,

but also as a way of moderating

fuel usage.

Nevertheless, in GLA180

form it is still a feisty

unit, and considering it’s

only moving a comparatively

lightweight at around

1500kg it’s not working

overly hard to achieve solid

performance and economy.

Mercedes-Benz claim

a standstill to 100km/h

time of 9.2sec, a 200km/h

top speed and a combined

cycle fuel usage average

of 5.7-litres per 100km

(50mpg). These are all

acceptable figures, the latter

correlates well with the

7.6l/100km (37mpg) average

showing on the evaluation

car’s trip computer.

Drive is channelled

through a seven-speed dual

clutch automatic gearbox.

Just by the sheer number

of ratios, power flow

is smooth and the GLA

has been engineered for

a dynamic drive, consequently

the ratios reach a

MERCEDES-BENZ GLA180: Impressive crossover

model.

broad spread, immediate

acceleration is vivid, the

engine is kept lively until

the tall ratios take over and

moderate engine speed

kicks in for the long highway

haul.

I like nimble sports cars,

and I believe you could

draw the GLA180 into that

category. It feels lithe and

energetic and I certainly

see why it is popular.

• Price – Mercedes-

Benz GLA180,

$60,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4424mm; width,

1804mm; height,

1494mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1595cc, 90kW,

200Nm, seven-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.2sec

• Fuel usage –

5.7l/100km

On my usual test run

between the two major

river gorges, the evaluation

car cruised quietly

and effortlessly. It has solid

mid-range power for

overtaking and will lunge

through a highway overtake

(80km/h to 120km/h)

in 5.8sec. The gearbox is

a direct-shift type which

means instant kick-down

and fast changes.

Something Mercedes-

Benz does very well is to

offer the driver optional

chassis and engine management

protocols to suit

different driving styles.

Personally, I preferred

the standard comfort

mode, but there are several

dynamic settings to

enhance engine behaviour

and steering feel.

The GLA180 rides on

sport specification Dunlop

tyres which measure

235/50 x 18in. I’m a big

fan of German rubber, and

while they aren’t low in

profile they promote solid

feel through the steering as

well as direct, accurate corner

turn-in.

The suspension is a fully

independent type, and the

spring and damper rates

are just firmed slightly

away from the soft zone.

Not that there’s a ride quality

compromise, far from

it, the GLA180 pampers

those on board yet it has

the balance so that when

quick corners are presented

the car stays composed and

controlled.

Unlike it’s 250 and AMG

stablemates which get the

Mercedes-Benz 4Matic

system, drive in the 180 is

through the front wheels

only. However, you can

push the latter hard into a

corner and it will respond

with decisive handling

manners almost unrealistic

for a vehicle which sits tall

at 1.5m, yet it isn’t bothered

by gravitational force.

As much as I enjoyed my

high country run in the

GLA180, it must be remembered

it is a practical station

wagon-type vehicle and it

has all of the kit to cater for

the role it is most likely to

face day-to-day.

As you would expect

from Mercedes-Benz,

it has a high level of

specification and, as I

mentioned, nothing has

been changed in terms of

familiarity. The gearshift

lever is still mounted right

on the steering column, the

electric seat adjustments

are still found on the door

and the central display

is controlled by a dial

mounted between the two

front seats.

The test car only had a

few extra inclusions even

though the list of options is

extensive. In terms of value

the GLA180 is a fine piece

of kit for a reasonable price.

All that aside, I eagerly

returned the 180 because

the AMG45 was waiting for

me at changeover. Look for

an evaluation on that wild

child soon.

The Best Kept Secrets

to Selling Your Home

Selling Secret #1: The first impression is the

only impression

No matter how good the interior of your home looks,

buyers have already judged your home before they walk

through the door. You never have a second chance to

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

feel warm, welcome and safe as they approach the

house. Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive

shrubs and brightly colored flowers. Entry ways are also

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

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

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

Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to show

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

never know when your buyer is going to walk through

the door. You have to be available whenever they want

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

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

cleaned out, the bathrooms sparkling and make sure

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

inconvenient, but it will get your house sold.

Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes first

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

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

remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part

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

It may be a few thousand dollars to replace countertops

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

price if your kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most

inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new

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

present buyers with a blank canvas where they can start

envisioning their own style. If you have a little money

to spend, buy one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why

one? Because when people see one high-end appliance

they think all the rest are expensive too and it updates

the kitchen.

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

One of the most important things to do when selling

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

stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can

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

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

memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes.

Staging simply means arranging your furniture to best

showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space.

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

money back if you do a huge improvement project before

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

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

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

some inexpensive new ones. Replace door handles,

cabinet hardware, make sure closet doors are on track,

fix leaky faucets and clean the grout.

Selling Secret #6: Conceal the critters

You might think a cuddly dog would warm the hearts

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

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

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

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

It will give buyers the impression that your house is not

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

pets around.

Selling Secret #7: Play the agent field

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

Make sure you have an agent who is totally informed.

They must constantly monitor the multiple listing

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

market and know the comps in your neighborhood. Find

an agent who embraces technology – a tech-savvy one

has many tools to get your house sold.

Selling Secret #8: Light it up

Maximize the light in your home. After location, good

light is the one thing that every buyer cites that they

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

windows, change the lampshades, increase the wattage

of your light bulbs and cut the bushes outside to let

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

bright and cheery – it will make it more sellable.

Selling Secret #9: Half-empty closets

We have achieved

record breaking

prices recently!

Storage is something every buyer is looking for and

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

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

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

cabinets clean and tidy.
