WELCOME TO the new

Christchurch, where neighbours

are becoming closer than ever.

But as we show on page

1 today, some neighbours

are going to be too close for

comfort.

Kim Mehlhopt has every right

to be furious about what is happening

next to her.

Who in their right mind

would want to live like this? And

what will this do to the value of

her home.

The problem lies with the

District Plan and is a snapshot

of what is to come for Christchurch.

Not a good outlook, so to

speak.

A nice story on page 3 about

a seal pup the McEwin family

rescued.

Finn McEwin found it at the

top of Gebbies Pass, took it home

and his wife and family looked

after it like one of their own.

Great photos of it having a

sleep and looking very much at

home.

No surprises for what they

called it – Luseal.

Sleepover for seal pup

Luseal spends

night in family’s

bathroom

• By Sarla Donovan

WHEN LARRISSA McEwin’s

husband, Finn, found a seal pup

at the top of Gebbies Pass, she

wasn’t expecting it to spend the

night in her bathroom.

But that’s exactly what happened.

The couple’s house is halfway

between Teddington and

Motukarara, several minutes

drive along narrow, winding

roads, so how the seal pup got

there is a mystery.

“It was there in the car park

near the walking track, right

near where we live. My husband

called me up and said: ‘What do

I do?’ It was a Friday evening,

there was a storm arriving and

there’s boy racers everywhere up

there on a Friday.”

She called the Department of

Conservation, which asked if

she was okay to have it for the

night and return it to the beach

the following day.

“I was a bit surprised. I said

sure – but how do you look after

a seal? I didn’t have any fresh

fish in the house. We opened a

tin of tuna for it which it didn’t

eat of course. It slept on the floor

in the bathroom. It was a very

good house guest, didn’t make

much noise at all. We poked our

heads in every now and then to

check on it, and there were its

wee eyes looking up at us – it

was gorgeous! I’d love to have

kept it.’’

Mrs McEwin christened the

pup Luseal.

“My five-year-old daughter

thought it was amazing. We

made a collage of photos and she

took it to school for show and

tell.”

DOC senior ranger Anita

Spencer said they had had several

calls on the after hours

EXCITED: Larrissa McEwin with her children Harvey, 2, and

Lyiah, 5, near where the seal pup was found at the top of

Gebbies Pass. Named Luseal, by the family, it spent a night

in their bathroom before being released back to the wild the

following day by Finn McEwin.

hotline about a seal pup on

the road near Gebbies Pass on

September 1.

“It’s very unusual to find a

seal pup so far from the sea or a

stream and it’s not known how it

got there,” she said.

“I phoned the caller back

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

and spoke to Mrs McEwin

who, by that stage, had put the

seal pup in a box and taken it

home. Because it was late and a

southerly front had just arrived,

she was advised to keep the seal

safe overnight and to release it

in Lyttelton Harbour the next

morning. The seal pup was in

good condition, which indicated

it had been weaned and was doing

well.”

On Sunday morning, Mrs

McEwin took Luseal down to

Purau Beach.

“Finn carried the box; we

walked around the rocks and

it hopped out and sat there,

looking at us and looking at the

water. Then it toddled off into

the water and swam off. It was

doing big twirls and lifting its

flipper; it went right out into the

harbour then swam back and

looked at us, as if to say ‘thanks

for having me’.”

•DOC’s advice to people

if they see seals on or

near the coast is to avoid

approaching them. If you

come across a seal that has

been injured, or one that is

in danger of being harmed

or causing harm, phone

DOC on 0800 362 468.

In Brief

HOME INTRUDER

A Merivale family woke in the

early hours of yesterday morning

to find a man in their house rifling

through the drawers in a bedroom.

The Winchester St residents found

the man dressed in dark clothing

in their house at about 3.30am.

When confronted, the man ran

off, police said. Police are asking

anyone with information about

the intruder to phone them on

363 7400 or anonymously through

Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

RESIDENTS AT WAR

In last week’s article on tenants

living in fear at a St Albans social

housing unit, it was reported

that people causing trouble were

parolees. This was incorrect. The

Department of Corrections has

confirmed no parolees are living

at Pickering Courts, and none

have lived there in recent years.

The Star regrets the error. •More

problems, p10

FAKE RUGBY MEDIC

Police have not yet spoken to

the man under investigation for

allegedly impersonating a medic

and assisting an injured rugby

player during a colts game on July

8. The investigation was launched

after the man, who was wearing a

shirt that made him appear to be a

medic, fitted the injured player with

a neck brace and administered an

unknown medicine.

UNEXPLAINED DEATH

Police are not treating the death

of a 28-year-old Indian woman on

Monday morning as a homicide.

They are making inquiries on

behalf of the coroner to establish

the cause of death, which is unexplained.

Emergency services were

called to a Selwyn St apartment

at about 9.10am and found the

woman’s partner performing

CPR on her. Detective Senior

Sergeant Greg Cottom said the

woman’s name would not be

released until family overseas had

been notified. He said police and

victim support are helping the

family who are coming to terms

with a tragic loss.

Woman feels crushed as new

• By Bridget Rutherford and

Andrew King

KIM MEHLHOPT bought

her Spreydon home 15 years

ago because she liked the

neighbourhood, privacy and the

character houses.

But now, five two-storey townhouses

are being built next door to

her Bolton Ave home – the garage

less than 1m away – has made the

50-year-old very, very angry.

The city council says the effect

on her

property is less

than minor.

When

finished, the

residents living

next door will

look out of

Kim Mehlhopt

their windows

directly into

her front yard, living room, a

bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and

back yard.

“It is so close, they’ll be able

to hear me peeing, and I will be

able to hear them humping,” Ms

Mehlhopt said.

She says the development

will devalue her home, cost her

privacy and the street’s family

appeal. It would also make access

DANGER: Kim Mehlhopt laid a complaint with WorkSafe after

she photographed a contractor standing on the fence on

Tuesday while working on the townhouses.

to her underground drains running

between the two properties,

and her fire exits, difficult, she

said.

But it is compliant with the

city council’s District Plan zoning,

developed following the

earthquakes.

CONTRAST: The two Bolton Ave houses used to be separated

by a driveway, and now there is little room between the two

properties (right).

So Ms Mehlhopt has taken

matters into her own hands by

trespassing contractors from

her property, calling police, and

laying complaints with WorkSafe

for contractor practices.

JSJ Investments bought the

neighbouring property a couple

of years ago.

Director Nick Johnston, who

also owns the NRJ Construction

which is building the townhouses,

said the development

was compliant because the land

was zoned L3. The zone allows

for residential medium density

housing.

He said the reason it was so

close was because Ms Mehlhopt’s

home had been built too close to

the boundary.

The proximity of her home was

not considered when designing

the townhouses, he said.

“In L3 you build the max site

coverage.”

But Ms Mehlhopt said “working

to the letter of the law doesn’t

make it right.”

They have not been sensitive to

the needs of the neighbourhood.”

She said her 121-year-old

house’s location had never been

an issue, and the city council

must have placed the boundary

around it after it was built.

Ms Mehlhopt said she knew

nothing about the townhouses

until contractors started working

on site a couple of months ago.

She said she should have been

consulted.

Fire rages, homes at risk

townhouses go up

But city council head of

resource consents John Higgins

said the adverse effects were

considered “less than minor”, so

it did not need to be notified.

He said the development was

compliant and all inspections

had passed.

The District Plan did not

require garages to have a

setback, as long as it did not

exceed 10.1m in length along the

boundary, he said. The setback

for other buildings was 1m, he

said.

The decision to allow the

development could only be

overturned by the courts, if

there had been an error in the

processing, he said.

Ms Mehlhopt said on Tuesday

a contractor put his ladder on her

front lawn to install the spoutings

next door because there was

no room over the fence.

She said she asked him to

leave three times, and verbally

trespassed him.

“If the city council consents to

this, they must know you can’t

complete the project without

touching somebody else’s land.”

The contractor then stood on

the fence separating the two

properties to do the work, initially

without wearing a harness,

she said. Ms Mehlhopt reported

it to WorkSafe.

A WorkSafe spokeswoman

said it would write to the

business concerned seeking a

response.

She said it did not meet the

criteria for an immediate on-site

visit because it did not pose an

imminent risk.

Ms Mehlhopt said she also

phoned police who said it would

be difficult to enforce a blanket

trespass on contractors because

there were so many coming and

going.

Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board chairwoman Karolin

Potter said “terrible” situations

like this were happening more

frequently, which was concerning.

“It’s so unfair for people who

have bought a house thinking

the symmetry of the street will

stay the same.”

Ms Mehlhopt met with

Labour Wigram MP Megan

Woods yesterday.

Dr Woods said she would follow

it up with the city council,

and would also have a broader

discussion with Spreydon residents

about it happening all over

the suburb.

“That’s very high density and

very close.”

Ms Mehlhopt, who is currently

unemployed, said she

requested the townhouse plans

and would tee up a visit with a

city council planner to discuss it.

She said her earthquake-damaged

house was in a poor state,

but until EQC re-levelled the

house piles, she could not do any

maintenance.

Burning log causes

Airbnb house fire

• By Andrew King

A BURNING log falling out

of a fireplace caused the huge

house fire which hospitalised six

tourists in Sumner.

The wooden, three-storey house

on Clifton Tce went up in flames

about 8.30pm on Sunday while a

Malaysian family of 10, renting

it through Airbnb, were upstairs

praying.

Specialist fire investigator Mark

Thomas told The Star yesterday

material falling from the fire had

caused the blaze.

The place had a lot of modern

furniture, which has a heavy fuel

load, and the house was timberframed

with timber cladding.

That, combined with the furniture,

is why it went up so fast, but

that is not unusual in house fires.

They can get very big, very fast,”

he said.

Of the six taken to Christchurch

Hospital, four had moderate

injuries and two had minor injuries,

mainly smoke inhalation, a

St John spokesman said.

Mr Thomas said the family was

alerted to the blaze by a smoke

alarm which saved them from

serious injury or worse.

GUTTED: The three-story

house will have to be pulled

down after a fire ripped

through it on Friday.

“One of the men tried to

smother the flames but they overcame

his efforts and he suffered

burns to his arm,” Mr Thomas

said.

The family escaped through the

back door, as flames had blocked

the front, he said.

“Once they were outside their

yelling alerted one of the neighbours,

who phoned 111, which is

exactly what we want people to

do,” he said.

Mr Thomas praised the fact

the house had working smoke

alarms.

The owners of the house, Bryce

and Kate Jenkins, do not live in

Christchurch.

High school students win beard battle

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A BATTLE for beards at a

Canterbury high school could

open the door to rule changes

around facial hair at other

schools.

Lincoln High School students

have won a year-long campaign

for facial hair, with the school

board of trustees agreeing to

drop its clean shaven-only rule

as a trial.

It came after a survey of staff,

students and parents at the

school found many supported

allowing facial hair.

Secondary Principals’ Association

chairman Phil Holstein,

who is principal of Burnside

High School, said he expected

more Canterbury schools would

have their policies questioned

because of the trial at Lincoln.

There has mostly been consistency

with uniforms, but once

you start varying from it more

schools start to follow,” he said.

A 16-year-old Hornby High

School student was suspended

two years ago for refusing to

shave. He chose to leave the

school and enrol in correspondence

school after the dispute.

Most Christchurch high

schools, including Hornby, still

have a clean shaven-only rule.

Hagley Community College

is an exception and has no dress

code.

Former Lincoln High School

student Andrew Hudson began

the campaign for beards last

year, putting a formal proposal

to the school board of trustees

last September.

He said it was about selfexpression.

“Many of the male students

who I discussed this with viewed

that the females at high school

had their own way of self-expression

by being allowed to wear

certain piercings, have their hair

styled in any way they wished, as

well as colouring it,” he said.

Board of trustees chairman

Adrian Paterson said the board

had not yet finalised the conditions

around the trial, and that

was set to happen at the next

board meeting.

He said the trial would run until

the end of next year, when the

SCHOOL RULES:

•Christ’s College: [Students] must be clean-shaven and

their hair and personal appearance must always be neat.

•Linwood College: Students at all levels must be clean

shaven.

•Hagley Community College: Beards allowed.

•Christchurch Boys’ High School: Boys are to be clean

shaven.

•Middleton Grange School: Boys are to be clean shaven.

•Cashmere High School: Male students at all levels must

be clean shaven.

•Hornby High School: Students must be clean shaven.

board would evaluate it again.

“We will look at how many

students take it on board, and

whether any issues crop up. The

question is will it affect their

learning, and obviously we

thought it shouldn’t, but we may

come across issues.”

Lincoln High School principal

Kathy Paterson said the survey

had shown opinions on facial

hair had been divided.

She would not release the survey

results, which she said were

still being worked on.

“I would prefer to keep the status

quo, but that’s my personal

view. We’ve got to be willing to

listen to the voice of students and

parents, and that’s what we’re

doing,” she said.

Hornby High School principal

Robin Sutton said his school

was open to changes, and had

recently made its uniform requirements

gender-neutral, after

a presentation by students.

But he said there were no plans

currently to change rules around

facial hair, because it impacted

the community perception of

students, he said.

They make judgements based

on superficial things like what

students look like,” he said.

Linwood College principal

Richard Edmundson said students

regularly asked him about

the clean shaven rule, but he had

no plans to change it.

He said that was partly because

of the risk of bullying.

“It avoids kids saying I can

grow one and you can’t,” he said.

glossy black, made their home one of the first in the country to have

Marley’s latest colour addition to the Stratus Design Series® range. Black is

now available in Marley Stormcloud® and Typhoon® spouting, and RP80®

downpipes.

Neil says: “Our old spouting and downpipes were white which made

the home feel a bit dated. We believe the black has truly transformed the

modern look and style of our home.”

“With rainwater our only supply of water and water safety imperative for

our family, we went with Marley uPVC because it was certified to potable

water standards. Being only 700 metres to the coast durability was really

important also as we didn’t want to risk corrosion or rusting over time

from metal spouting.”

Stormcloud’s quarter-round profile was chosen to suit the architectural

style of the 1960s home, with the added bonus of being the perfect

solution to the constraint of the house’s short fascia boards.

When asked what advice Neil would give others looking to undertake

a similar project, he said: “Plan, plan, plan but have plenty of fun in the

process. Be open to new ideas and where possible prioritise good building

materials.”

The biggest lesson of all?

“Always listen to your wife.” says Neil.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Halswell lake claims mother, father

• By Kurt Bayer

A DRIVING lesson turned into

tragedy leaving a five-month-old

baby an orphan and a family

mourning.

The bodies of Sheetal Ram,

31, and her husband Avneel, 27,

were removed from a lake in

Halswell yesterday morning after

a car plunged into the water on

Tuesday night.

Family member Hinesh Kumar

identified the bodies at the

scene as those of his sister-in-law

her husband, police are yet to

formally identify them.

The couple are the parents of a

five-month-old girl.

The large group of family

and friends formed a guard of

honour as the bodies were carried

from the lake shore to the

waiting hearse.

Mr Kumar said Avneel was a

“hero” for trying to save his wife

after their car slipped into the

lake, reportedly while he was

giving Sheetal a driving lesson,

about 5.45pm.

The family is devastated and

are being consoled by friends.

“This is obviously a very

tragic event for the wider family,

many of whom are here at the

moment,” Superintendent Todd

said.

TRAGEDY: Avneel Ram and wife Sheetal died when their car plunged into a Halswell lake. They

leave a five-month-old baby girl.

“What appears to have occurred

is that about 5.40pm the

vehicle has driven into the lake

and we’re determining exactly

what the causes are.”

He said in spite of speculation

about what had happened, it was

too early to confirm anything.

A crane pulled the car out of

the lake yesterday afternoon. It

was found in poor visibility at a

depth of about 6m, Superintendent

Todd said.

He wouldn’t confirm exactly

where the bodies were found,

whether they were inside or

outside of the vehicle.

Victim Support and police liaison

officers were with the family.

The couple’s child was being

cared for by family members of

the Fijian Indian couple, originally

from Suva.

“He is a hero to us. He tried

to save his wife. Not everyone

would do that,” Mr Kumar said.

“We never expected this to

happen to us.

“We are totally lost. We don’t

know what to do now, we don’t

know what the next step will be.”

The close-knit Fijian Indian

community in Christchurch is a

big help, the family say.

They described the couple

as “very friendly, very happy

people”.

They were really fun to be

around, really nice,” Mr Kumar

said.

Sheetal came to New Zealand

last year, but her husband has

been in New Zealand for about

five years. He ran an air conditioning

company and was well

known in the community. He

was teaching his wife how to

drive so she could find work.

Witness Jordan Fleming said

he was walking his dog past the

Westlake Reserve when he saw a

woman in a red hatchback in the

car park, and a man outside trying

to open the driver’s door.

“I heard the accelerator go

and that’s when the car went off

the bank down the hill into the

lake,” he said.

The man jumped in and swam

after the sinking car, diving and

resurfacing several times, Mr

Fleming said. Then he dived and

did not reappear.

Firefighters and police tried to

dive down to the vehicle to see if

anyone was trapped inside.

Other witnesses said two other

people who tried to save the pair

were taken away by ambulance.

A diver went into the lake but

came up indicating he could not

reach the vehicle, locals say.

The lake sits in the middle

of a housing development in

Halswell. Residents say it’s a deep

former shingle quarry, popular

with runners, walkers, cyclists

and children feeding ducks.

More trouble

at housing

complex

PROBLEMS AT the Pickering

Courts social housing complex

are continuing, with several units

and vehicles vandalised over the

weekend.

Tenants at the St Albans complex

found yellow graffiti sprayed on their

units and vehicles on Saturday night.

The vandalism is the latest in a

string of problems at the complex.

The Star revealed last week that

police have been called several times

in the past year over problems, including

disorder, injuries and threats

to shoot other residents’ pets.

Resident Dawn Satherly, 80, had

her car vandalised on Saturday.

She has lived in the complex for

more than 20 years, and said she had

never seen so many problems.

The place has absolutely deteriorated,”

she said.

She said she called police when she

discovered the graffiti at about 10pm

on Saturday, but she had not heard

back. She also notified the Ōtautahi

Community Housing Trust, which

manages the former city council

housing complex.

Trust chief executive Cate Kearney

said the trust pro-actively followed

up on any tenancy-related complaints.

Rugby boys get bigger

• By Gordon Findlater

Auth by I Gaskin, 85 Poulston St, Christchurch

Christchurch Central

RUGBY BOYS are getting

bigger and stronger.

And our leading rugby

secondary school appears to

be doing all it can to keep pace

with the top schools in the

North Island.

At the weekend, Christchurch

Boys’ High School were

crowned national under-15

champions when they defeated

Hamilton Boys’ High School

22-18 in Wellington.

The team also completed the

perfect season in doing so.

In the past, Christchurch

teams have been beaten for size

and strength when coming

up against some of the North

Island’s powerhouses.

However, it wasn’t the case

this time around, thanks to

an all-Tongan front row that

combined for more than 350kg

in pushing power, as well as two

locks who are both either side

of 2m.

It’s hoped the trio of Junior

Fifita, 14, Anfernee Ofa, 14,

and Tobais Fukofuko, 15, will

continue to develop their power

and prowess in the front row.

The development of a tight five

BIG BOYS: Junior Fifita, Anfernee Ofa and Tobais Fukofuko

already combine for 350kg of power and are the future of

front-rowers.

that can dominate at a national

first XV level is a priority for

CBHS.

“In recent years, we’ve realised

that’s an area some of the

North Island schools have an

advantage over us, so it’s good

to see boys like this coming

379-3589 379-3589

through here,” said CBHS

rugby co-ordinator Rob Smith.

The hours on the scrum

machine appear to be paying

off for the up-and-coming front

rowers.

They also have a good tactic

at the breakfast table for growing

big and strong.

“It’s usually Weet-Bix with

heaps of sausages and eggs,”

said Ofa jokingly.

They make us run a lot and

do lots of push ups.”

The boys already have their

eyes on the bigger picture as

well.

The plan is Mitre 10 Cup

for Canterbury, New Zealand

under-20s, Super Rugby for

the Crusaders and then the All

Blacks,” said Fukofuko.

Behind them in the locks are

Josh Taula, 15, and Jamie Hannah,

14. With Taula at 204cm

and Hannah 197cm, CBHS also

look to have found a couple of

giants in the locking department.

It’s not just the forwards

that are getting big at an early

age.

One of the team’s wingers

is Ollie Hansen – son of All

Blacks coach Steve Hansen –

who is described by his coach,

Phil McKay, as a 190cm fastrunning

outside back.

Most of the squad are

expected to play in the third,

second or first XV squads next

season, but even against older

boys, they should still have

them for size.

Rae’s decades-old fight for National

• By Bridget Rutherford

IF YOU’VE seen a friendly

looking chap parked on

the side of the road with a

National Party sign waving to

motorists – that’s Rae Mills.

The 76-yearold

has been sitting

on the side

of busy roads

at peak travel

times promoting

National

every election

for the last decade.

But he’s been volunteering

for the party for much longer.

Mr Mills, who moved

to Christchurch in 1984,

wasn’t always a National supporter.

He switched from Labour

about 40 years ago when he

was chairman of Southland’s

Otatara Kindergarten committee.

National had been in Government

and told Mr Mills it

had pledged money towards a

loan for the kindergarten.

But when Labour won the

1972 general election, Mr

Mills was told the Government

did not have the money

in its budget.

Mr Mills said he then

marched into National’s

Wallace MP Brian Talboys’

office to see if he could help.

“He said I’ll sort that out for

you,” Mr Mills said.

“Eleven days later I got a

reply from Education Minister

Phil Amos saying approval has

been granted for your loan.

“I was quite impressed,

because I was Labour.”

He has been volunteering

for National ever since.

Mr Mills has been parking

on the side of Halswell Rd,

Ferry Rd in Ferrymead, and

State Highway 1 between

Christchurch and Amberley

waving to passers by since

July.

He does it on weekdays for a

couple of hours in the mornings

and evenings.

“About 80 per cent of people

wave,” he said.

“I believe in what I’m doing,

I know it’s working.”

His role was to encourage

people to party vote National,

followed by its candidate for

each electorate, he said.

DEDICATED:

Horotane Valley,

HUNTER

“It really is about people

ticking both boxes.”

He said the outcome of the

September 23 election would

be tight – but he hoped National

would come out on top.

Mr Mills, who is a former

builder and now works at

Mitre 10 Mega Ferrymead,

said he was happy to continue

volunteering during election

time if his wife Pat says it’s

okay.

“I’m still fit and well and

able to do it.”

challenges on

RAPPER SCRIBE has taken to

social media to reveal he is “four

In a video on Instagram, Malo

Ioane Luafutu shared that he’s

tackling his challenges and is ready

to show the world he will bounce

“4 days clean . . . I’m a show everybody

In 2011, Scribe revealed he

suffered from drug, alcohol and

gambling addictions.

Police allege he was found with

an offensive weapon, namely a bat,

on Ollivers Rd, Phillipstown.

It’s also alleged he was found in

possession of a Class A controlleddrug

amphetamine and a pipe.

He also faces three charges

of failing to answer bail. The

Christchurch rapper captured the

hearts of New Zealanders when his

debut album The Crusader was released

in 2003. It went gold within

hours and platinum after just a

few days. Luafutu was remanded

on bail to a case review hearing on

November 14. His bail conditions

require him to report to a police

station twice a week.

Sports legends’ comeback

• By Gordon Findlater

CANTERBURY’S sporting

heroes will once again see the

light of day after Lancaster

Park’s Pillars of Pride were

salvaged last week.

What is next for the pillars,

which were created to recognise

Canterbury rugby and cricket

greats, is yet to be decided.

The Canterbury Rugby

Football Union Historical Trust

has come into possession of the

26 rugby pillars, which were left

stricken at Lancaster Park ahead

of its demolition.

Warren Barberel, who is

leading the trust’s efforts to

salvage the pillars, says there are

a few ideas currently floating

around such as placing them

around Rugby Park.

Some of the former players

represented on the pillars, their

families and clubs have also

inquired about getting their

hands on some of them.

Fergie McCormick, who still

holds the record of 222 games

for Canterbury, was the first to

have a pillar created.

He still remembers the day

his pillar went up at Lancaster

Park and described it as a huge

honour and a great memory.

GREATS: Les McFadden, Warren Barberel and Gary Tibbotts

stand with Fergie McCormick and Ian Penrose’s Pillars of

Pride.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

He was obviously stoked to

hear the pillars had finally been

recovered.

“That’s marvellous – I’m

pretty over the moon about

that,” said McCormick.

“I didn’t want to see them end

up in a pit.”

He is keen see the pillars put

on display at Rugby Park if all

the former players and families

agree. Otherwise, he’d like to

see it stay within his family

and on display at Linfield Park

– the home of his Linwood

Rugby Club. Ian Penrose, who

captained Canterbury 64 times

in his 103 appearances between

1963 and 1971, is also happy to

see the pillars safe and is open to

what happens next.

“If everyone can agree to a

display at Rugby Park, I’ll be

happy,” said Penrose.

“Otherwise, I may look at

offering it to the museum at

New Brighton.”

The Pillars of Pride are made

of steel and curved to fit around

the pillars at Lancaster Park.

Other players with pillars

include Sydenham legend

Maurice Dixon, the oldest living

All Black Tiny Hill and hardman

Alex Wyllie.

The historical trust has been

operating out of the old physio

room at Rugby Park for the past

two years, collecting Canterbury

rugby memorabilia.

The idea to set up the trust

came just over a decade ago

during the CRFU’s 125th

anniversary.

The objective was to form

a little group and we would

attempt to get a hold of

memorabilia,” said Mr Barberel.

The trust currently has around

2000 items, which range from

programmes and jerseys to

boots, films and books.

The dream is that we would

have a Canterbury rugby

museum,” said Mr Barberel.

“Let’s see what we might get if

we get a new stadium.”

The trust also has the 12

cricket Pillars of Pride, including

the likes of Richard, Walter and

Dayle Hadlee.

Canterbury Cricket are

expected to collect them shortly.

Hundreds of people in

Christchurch are now

opening their homes

to complete strangers,

as home-stay

networks like Airbnb,

Couchsurfing and

Bookabach take off.

Gabrielle Stuart spoke

to some of the hosts

WHEN ARIANA Braving wakes

up in the morning, it is usually

to a house full of strangers.

More than 500 people have

stayed at their Russley home in

the year since she and her husband,

Ryan Braving, first listed it

on Airbnb.

Each morning she lays out

a breakfast for the guests –

cereals, tea and coffee – answers

any questions they have, and

sometimes drops them off to the

airport or to pick up rental cars.

After the guests leave, a couple

of hours are spent cleaning and

changing bedding, then getting

the rooms ready again – restocking

toiletries and making up the

beds with crisp new sheets and

neatly folded towels.

It’s a lot of work, but she said it

had also changed her life.

Last year, she quit her job as a

scientist to pursue her dream of

being a life coach.

The extra income from

Airbnb meant she could afford

to spend the year studying and

starting her own life coaching

business.

“It’s almost a part-time job,

helping me do what I love to do,”

she said.

There are about 2000

Christchurch homes currently

listed on Airbnb, ranging from

$15 for a bed in a shared central

city unit, to $1298 for exclusive

use of a seven-bedroom luxury

lodge in Ferrymead, complete

with a spa, sauna and indoor

pool.

It uses a review system similar

to Uber or Trade Me. Guests can

see reviews of a host before they

book a room through the website

or mobile app, and hosts can

see feedback left about the guest

before they accept a booking.

Bookabach is a similar service,

started in New Zealand in 2000.

Its focus is holiday homes and

baches, with about 3000 currently

listed around the South

Island, including cabins in the

bush, ski chalets, and homes on

private beaches.

The Couchsurfing service is

also popular, with more than

5000 hosts listed in Christchurch.

It’s difference is that guests

stay for free, with the focus on

building relationships – it is often

used by travellers, who open

their own homes and then stay

with people from other cities.

Wanaka resident Terry recently

stayed with the Bravings on

the way back from a two-month

trip around Europe – where he

stayed at dozens of Airbnbs.

He said he had been using the

service for more than five years,

and his experiences had been

overwhelmingly positive – from

the home in the Italian alps

which looked like it was “out of

a fairytale,” to the messy looking

flat where the residents were so

friendly he stayed for five days.

opening up your home to strangers

He said he chose to stay at the

Bravings because it was close to

the airport, but said they had

been “absolutely lovely” hosts.

Mrs Braving said the experience

of meeting travellers from

all over the world had been

fascinating.

She said the

majority came

from Europe

or Africa, but

they also had

guests from

more unusual

places such

as Zimbabwe

Kate Dickson or South

America.

She said they had never had

any serious problems with guests,

although a few had been rude or

really dirty.

They had spent about $1500 on

high quality sheets and towels to

set up the rooms, but the extra

income had covered the expenses

pretty quickly, she said.

The couple have listed their

rooms for $26 for a single bedroom,

$54 for a queen bedroom,

or $105 for both.

Their location close to the

airport meant they had guests

staying most nights, even in

winter, she said.

BEACHSIDE: At $220 per night, Kate Dickson’s self contained

North Beach studio is more expensive - but it comes with use

of their pool and sauna, a full kitchen and bathroom and even

complementary crackers and cheese.

She said it had been a great

experience, but she did not

think they would carry it on

long-term.

“If you have a lot of guests it

does get tiring, because you don’t

have privacy,” she said.

Privacy was also a concern for

hosts Kate Dickson and Martin

Little, who have listed their selfcontained

North Beach studio on

Airbnb.

“For me, personally, the self

contained part is the clincher. It

depends how much you like your

own space,” Ms Dickson said.

Their studio is one of the

higher-priced listings on the site,

costing $220 per night.

But it has proven very popular,

especially over summer – it is

already booked for all but four

nights in January – and it recently

made the Airbnb NZ list of

most favourited listings around

the country.

She said they built the studio

as a home office for their design

and marketing business, but no

longer used it.

They joined Airbnb hoping

it would pay for their rates, she

said, but it had proven a lot more

popular than they expected.

“We were so amazed by how

popular it was. Every morning

I’d look at my phone and say: ‘Oh

wow, another request’.”

She went the extra mile to

make the place feel like a luxury

stay, ironing the sheets and providing

cheese and crackers when

guests arrived.

She said some of the guests

had been fascinating people –

including a United States navy

commander, and a photographer

who had worked on the set of TV

shows like The Blacklist.

Since they started hosting, the

couple had done more travelling

themselves, she said, staying at

Airbnb homes in Hawaii and

Australia.

Spark and Angela Weng have

been hosting people since 2014,

and their Addington home is one

of the most popular in Christchurch.

Mr Weng said he had lost

count of the number of visitors,

but he estimated it was close to

1000.

At $34 per night for a stay

in their ensuited spare room,

they didn’t make a lot of money

through the service – but they

did it to meet people, he said.

“We’ve made some good

friends, and that’s more important

than money. Friends from

France and Italy and Singapore

and Hong Kong,” he said.

Their youngest guest had

been a 4-month-old baby from

Germany, and the oldest an

80-year-old American who was

still travelling the world.

He said they would keep hosting

as long as they had a spare

room available.

“We meet different people and

we learn interesting things. It

opens our minds, too, which is

really great,” he said.

Health blow prompts plan

to restore father’s classic car

• By Gabrielle Stuart

FOR THE Cornish family, life

has revolved around cars, the

garage and the race track.

So when Gary Cornish was

told he had terminal cancer last

month, his five children decided

restoring a special car was the

best way to honour him.

They are looking for help to

restore Mr Cornish’s classic Ford

Zephyr Zodiac Mk3, which has

been in the family for about 30

years.

His daughter, Stefanie Cornish,

said he had always planned

to restore the car once he retired

– but the cancer diagnosis had

cut that plan short.

Mr Cornish has both brain

and lung cancer, and learned

three weeks ago it was untreateable.

His family was told this week

he may not live to see the end of

the year.

“He doesn’t have very long

left, so we’re just trying to do as

much as we can for him before

he goes, because he’s done a lot

for all of us kids,” she said.

Mr Cornish, Stefanie and her

brother Phillip race national

Ford Zephyr Zodiac has been

in storage for years, but after

his terminal cancer diagnosis

last month his children are

working to restore it.

Right – Gary Cornish and his

class speedway, and she said a lot

of their friends from the track

had volunteered to help restore

the car.

Mr Cornish learned to drive

in the car, which had been given

to him by his father, Gordon

Cornish, she said.

“It’s been a part of our life

since before I was born. It’s more

than just a car to him,” Stefanie

said.

She said it needed a lot of

work, but it would be a chance

for the family to spend time

together in the garage.

“All of us are in on it, we all

want to help dad. So all of us will

pitch in and do some work, and

dad will probably help out when

he’s able to,” she said.

The family have set up a

fundraising page at www.

US legal battle over

for former city woman

• By Sarah Hall

A FORMER Christchurch

woman deemed an illegal alien

in the United States but unable

to leave the country is finally

free to come home to visit

family.

Kellie Hendry had

two children to a United

States but wanted to

bring them home after

the relationship ended.

The couple had never

married and Kellie’s

eldest child, Lili, was

born in New Zealand.

But the children’s

father disputed they should be

able to leave the country and the

US authorities agreed.

But because of a bizarre legal

quirk Ms Hendry was deemed

an illegal immigrant. She was

therefore unable to leave the

United States but unable to

work to support her children.

The 45-year-old and her

children Lili, now 12, and

Cameron, 10, ended up living

in a homeless shelter in Harlem.

They received just $175 a week

in food stamps and Government

handouts.

It was a far cry from Hendry’s

Kellie Hendry

earlier life in New York. She

moved there in 2003 to work as

a nanny for a wealthy family on

the Upper East side.

They would fly her around the

world in their private jet before

eventually offering her

a full-time job at their

publishing company.

This week – more than

six years after her legal

nightmare began – Ms

Hendry was finally

granted a green card

allowing her to legally

work and stay in the

United States.

“I never thought it

would take as long as it did.

There is no legal resolution to

people caught in an immigration

situation like my own.”

The only way Ms Hendry

finally managed to get the

green card was by marrying

her new partner Sid Brown.

She believes she would still be

stuck in legal limbo if she hadn’t

married.

Ms Hendry said she’s “delighted

the nightmare is finally

over and she can bring her children

home to meet their New

Zealand family.”

3D printing used to heal broken bones

The Star is running a

series on the work of

University of Otago

researchers based at

Christchurch Hospital,

ahead of their public

showcase next month.

This week we look at

how 3D printers may

be used to heal broken

bones

Christchurch researchers are

growing veins in the laboratory

as part of a project aiming to

create large 3D-printed pieces

of bone for use in orthopaedic

surgery.

The work is being done by the

University of Otago’s Christchurch

Regenerative Medicine and

Tissue Engineering (CReaTE)

Group.

CReATE’s Dr Khoon Lim said

a focus of tissue engineering

researchers was being able to

produce large, functional pieces

of replacement bone, with their

own blood supply or veins.

The CReaTe group were worldleaders

in the field of research,

he said.

Dr Lim said one of CReaTE’s

current projects is developing

EXPERIMENTS: University of Otago Christchurch researcher

Dr Khoon Lim is part of a team which is working on ways to 3D

print living bone for use in surgery.

an implant to boost the healing

of patients with traumatic bone

fractures requiring surgery.

“Now when patients break

bones, surgeons often graft bone

from another part of the body.

We are working on a way for patient’s

own cells to be implanted

into the defect to harness the

natural healing capacity of the

body, without the trauma of graft

surgery.”

Dr Lim says a personalised

‘scaffold’ would be 3D-printed to

match the shape of the damaged

piece of bone. Layers of human

cells and proteins are then infused

through the scaffold.

When the scaffold is implanted

in the patient, different proteins

will be released at different stages

of healing.

The first stage is the growth of

new blood vessels.

The idea of what we are trying

to achieve is that the patient can

return to their normal activity

of everyday life. This means that

their broken bone, for example,

is as strong and functional as it

was before.”

The laboratory-stage work is

being funded by the Health Research

Council of New Zealand.

Dr Lim hopes the technology

could be used in surgery within

five years.

CReaTe is part of the University

of Otago, Christchurch’s Orthopaedic

Surgery Department.

Professor Gary Hooper is head

of the department and one of

New Zealand’s leading orthopaedic

surgeons, so CReaTE’s

research is done with a view to

how it could benefit patients and

surgeons.

THIS ELECTION is a

contest of ideas. Every day

of the campaign, National

has been rolling out policies

to ensure New Zealanders

know about our plan to

take Christchurch and the

country forward.

Our plan supports

growth, backs businesses, focuses on

more jobs, lifting household incomes, and

providing a safety net for those in need.

The strong economy, backed by National’s

successful plan, means we can build

on our already comprehensive support for

families and households.

Here’s just a few of our policies: Those

on the average wage will get $1000 a

year under our family incomes package

– that’s about $26 a week for more than

1.3 million working families. It will also

benefit about 750,000 superannuitants

and 41,000 students.

Our parents and newborns package will

support families to grow and stay healthy,

while also putting more money in their

pockets with 22 weeks’ paid parental

leave.

Cheaper GP visits will benefit 600,000

more low income Kiwis and, by lifting

elective surgeries to 200,000 a year, we’ll

ensure access to life-changing operations

– like hip replacements – for thousands

more New Zealanders.

National is focused on making our

communities safer. We’re clamping down

on crime, holding offenders to account

and breaking the cycle of offending. We’re

pumping half-a-billion dollars into the

police to put more officers on the street

and work toward our goal of making New

Zealand the safest country in the world.

National is also deeply committed to

getting Christchurch back on its feet

following the quakes. The Government

has spent more than $14 billion on the

rebuild so far, and that’s forecast to rise to

more than $17 billion by 2021.

This year alone, we’ve opened three new

schools, completed the $2.2 billion horizontal

infrastructure repair programme,

unveiled the Canterbury Earthquake National

Memorial, announced a contract to

complete the design and construction of

the Convention Centre, put forward $120

million for a new multi-use arena, committed

to a new specialist mental health

facility, and handed over 90,000 sq m of

residential red zone land for community

projects.

Also, last week’s decision by the Anglican

diocese to accept the Government’s

offer to reinstate Christ Church Cathedral

was a real thrill and a huge leap forward

for our city.

As the Minister supporting Greater

Christchurch Regeneration, Christchurch

Central MP and a proud Cantabrian, I

have and will continue to do my best for

Christchurch – the city of opportunity.

Put Reader’s Question in the subject line

Women’s suffrage reminds

us of importance of voting

A SIGNIFICANT part

of Christchurch’s history

is being celebrated at the

national conference of the

New Zealand Council of

Women being held here

this weekend.

Although the history of

the National Council of

Women dates back to its

formation in Christchurch

in 1896, three years after

the successful campaign

for women’s suffrage gave

New Zealand women the

right to vote in a world

first, it was in 1917 that the

Christchurch Branch of

NCW was formed.

In preparing for welcoming

the conference delegates,

I have been looking

back at the history of the

suffrage movement and

NCW, both led by Kate

Sheppard, which are as

much a part of our history

as a city as they are the history

of our nation.

Although the issues may

have changed, the underlying

principles have not.

In the 1890s, according

to Te Ara, “they were concerned

with such issues as

the introduction of old age

pensions, the regulation

of hours and conditions

of work, the extension

of technical education

both in primary and in

secondary schools, and

penal reforms such as the

classification of types of

criminals, the introduction

of the indeterminate

sentence, and the abolition

of capital punishment.

They were also concerned

with equal pay, and

with compulsory jury service,

for women. They also

endeavoured to encourage

women to serve on local

bodies. Later, they turned

their attention to advocating

the appointment of

women as justices of the

peace and as members of

the police.”

I mention this, as it is

important to remember

Lianne Dalziel

that we can make gains as

women, as minorities, as

people with disabilities,

only to see them disappear

with the stroke of a

legislative pen. There is an

expression ‘use it or lose it’.

Okay, no-one is going to

take away our right to vote,

(although there is always a

risk around local democracy

as we know here),

but if we have won gains

we value, then we have to

participate if we don’t want

to lose them.

I’ve already voted in

this election. There are a

lot more advance polling

booths this year and no

longer do you have to attest

that you won’t be in your

electorate on the day. It’s

your choice when you vote,

but make sure you do.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Children get into election

I VIVIDLY remember the 1984

election. I was 10-years-old and

there was a sense that change was

in the air.

I remember watching the

new candidate for Sydenham,

Jim Anderton, holding a street

meeting outside of our family

home. I also have brief snatches

of memories of the 1981 election

held in the wake of the Springbok

tour. I remember driving along

Lincoln Rd and asking my dad

what “Think Big” on the signs

meant.

I’ve been recalling these

memories as I have been watching

the growing fascination children

are having with this election. It

seems that the events happening

around them are pulling some

of them away from their screens

and iPads. They are turning up

at my street corner armed with

questions and a desire to know

more.

Visiting local schools has

become more intense as children

are lining up to know more. Two

of the most frequent questions

I get are ‘when did I last see

Jacinda’ and ‘what is my favourite

colour’. However, there is also a

smattering of questions that go to

the heart of this election. Cleaning

up rivers and making sure we

don’t mess up our world is top of

their lists.

Lots of the local schools are

taking part in the Electoral

Commission’s mock election

where children are encouraged

to look at what the parties are

saying and will be asked to cast

a vote based on what they have

found out. This is an outstanding

initiative and the commission and

the schools taking part deserve

huge congratulations. Let’s hope

this creates a generation of voters.

I love campaigns but this

engagement by children with

what is going on is putting an

extra spring in my step. I believe

we have a duty to leave our world

better than we found it and the

constant sight of children’s faces

constantly reminds me of that.

Canterbury spokeswoman

Readers react to the

Anglican synod’s decision

to reinstate Christ Church

Cathedral, six years after

it was badly damaged

in the February 22, 2011,

earthquake

Raymond Watchman –

Folks, set aside your feelings

about religion. See the Cathedral

as Christchurch’s most

iconic building. It’s restoration

will make it a powerful symbol

of the spirit of the Christchurch

community as a whole, rising

undaunted, undefeated, from

the anguish and rubble of tremendous

disaster. You cannot

really put a monetary value on

such a powerful symbolic testimony

to the human spirit, the

spirit of the people of Christchurch.

Lyn Jarman – Money

should have been redirected to

those affected by the quakes,

particularly in areas of mental

health. Restoring the Cathedral

will not give those people any

hope or help. Will the doors be

left open so the homeless can

sleep in it? Will it entice those of

us back – people are the heart of

Otautahi, not a building.

Carolyn Phil Murphy –

Fantastic, another positive step

towards the future of Christchurch.

The Cathedral is the centre of

the city – let’s hope this decision

will encourage others to

move ahead with central city

projects.

Rob McGregor – The

church can decide to do whatever

it wants with its property – as

long as it pays for it.

But that’s not the case here

and a very small minority are

going to have their new house of

worship largely paid for by nonbelievers

like me. Sorry, I am

not happy with this decision.

themselves, stepped up to help after the 7.8 magnitude North

Canterbury earthquake in November. She spoke to Gabrielle Stuart

Could you tell me a bit about the

people in your book?

They’re really just ordinary people

doing extraordinary things in a time

of need to help other people. The book

is called Come Together, and we’ve featured

30 local families who suffered in

the Canterbury earthquakes. They tell

their stories of how the earthquakes

affected them, and why they came

to help Miss Lilly’s Angels after the

North Canterbury earthquake.

It must be difficult to pick – but

could you tell me a couple of their

stories?

Well, there was Phil and Mike, who

lost their homestead and then their

dad in the earthquakes. When the

North Canterbury earthquake hit,

they drove as far as they could and

then walked the rest of the way to

Kaikoura to try to help.

Another was Maria, who on

September 4 was giving birth to her

daughter when the power went out

and everything turned to custard.

She and her friends came out with

a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado full of

toiletries and hand sanitiser and essentials

they donated, because she had

been through it herself and she knew

how terrifying it was.

Then there were the people from

North Canterbury, like Sparky, who

was home with his wife and daughter

and five grandchildren when the

earthquake hit. How they got out alive

I don’t know. They were isolated and

could hear the slips all around them.

As the kids were coming down

their stairwell, the hot water cylinder

popped up and buckled the stairs, so

one of the boys couldn’t get past. He

had to go out to the deck and jump

and, as he jumped, the whole deck

collapsed. Then they got to the railway

and as they got there they saw the sea

was gone. So they said, if we go up the

hill we’ll be hit by rocks, if we don’t

we’ll be hit by a wave. He lost his job,

and lost his house and meeting him I

said s**t, things are tough. But he said

money is the root of all evil, and the

fact the family is okay is priceless.

And Richie’s in the book, with

Christchurch Helicopters. I spent a lot

of time with him flying things back

and forth for people. He worked so

hard, I have a lot of respect for him

and all the team there.

So there are no broken buildings in

this book, because it’s about people,

it’s about us healing through other

people’s stories.

And you’ve been writing the book

while managing your food truck and

catering business?

Yes, and I have a two-year-old and

my husband works away from home,

so there have been a lot of days I have

been up until 2am writing and then

catering the next day, functioning on

three hours sleep. I’ve been working

on the book since January almost

every day. Today, I got the final proof,

and there were lots of tears.

So tell me about your background?

I’m originally from Timaru. I

studied as a counsellor and worked

for a while with New Zealand Police

in victim support and with women’s

refuges.

After the Canterbury earthquakes,

I worked with a lot of people and with

children traumatised by it. And I saw

that through my own individual experience,

because my family lost three

homes and lost jobs and had to relocate.

We went through it ourselves,

too. That’s actually how we built Miss

Lilly’s, with recycled stuff from our

own home. So when Kaikoura was

hit, I felt it was my time to pay it

forward after all the good will we had

received.

after earthquake

So you experienced people’s kindness

yourself after the earthquakes?

Oh yes, so much. I’ve had people walk

up the drive with baking, complete strangers.

Something that stood out is a little

boy who was only eight, who had saved

up his pocket money to buy shampoo and

conditioner and some lollies. He told me

this needs to go to someone who needs it

in Kaikoura. We forget what humanity

means, that care for others. And now, I

get so many messages and cards from

complete strangers, saying how grateful

they were.

How big a role do you think your

background as a counsellor played in the

work you’re doing now to help people?

Nothing. That sounds terrible. The work

as a counsellor was great, but it was in

a system that wasn’t right. It was about

ticking boxes. So it showed me how we

can do things differently, because it was

very much an ambulance at the bottom of

the cliff approach. I think that work made

me an element of the person I am today. I

learned a lot about myself and about people,

but I don’t think I would go back.

So how many people are you expecting

at the red zone potluck?

The girls are predicting anywhere from

4000, so we’re encouraging people to bring

their own chairs. I just come up with the

idea and the girls here make it happen.

They want to kill me because the logistics

are quite difficult. We’re still a young trust

Big plans for Leeston’s new hotel

• By Gabrielle Stuart

AFTER SIX long years

without a pub, the Leeston

community turned out to

open the new Crate and

Barrel last week – and the

doors have barely stopped

swinging since.

Publican Craig Bradford

said business had been

“flat out” all weekend after

the grand opening on Thursday.

The grand opening began

with a parade through the

town, featuring a horse and

cart, a steam engine and

vintage vehicles.

About 250 people then

filled the outdoor deck

to see the pub opened by

Canterbury rugby legends

Fergie McCormick and Alby

Anderson.

The town has been without

a pub since the earthquakedamaged

Leeston Hotel was

demolished in 2011.

Mr Bradford said the planning

and consenting process

for the new building had

taken years.

“I’d just like to say sorry

for the wait. But now it’s

WAIT OVER: Craig and Bridget Bradford celebrate the opening of the Crate & Barrel.

open, come and have a cold

one. The poor buggers out

here have waited far too

long,” he said.

He said it was designed

to be more than a pub, and

to function as a community

centre for the town.

It is split into four sections,

each with its own theme

– the bar area, which is all

about Leeston; the lakethemed

restaurant; a sports

area; and the music section,

featuring a full drum kit

mounted on the wall in the

stairwell.

Mr Bradford said he had

big plans for coming events

at the pub, but they were still

under wraps.

“Now it’s open I can sit

back and start planning,” he

said.

THEME: Each of the sections of the new

bar and restaurant are designed around a

different theme, including music, motorcycles

and game hunting.

Rock classics sure to be on Barnes’ set list

BIG NAME: Rock and roll legend Jimmy Barnes says he’s

looking forward to headlining the next Selwyn Sounds. ​

• By Bridget Rutherford

JIMMY BARNES hasn’t decided

what songs he will play at March’s

Selwyn Sounds.

He will choose on the day when

he sees the crowd.

“I get to a set and I have a look

at the audience – what are they

doing, are they having a good

time? And I’ll pick the set accordingly,”

he said.

One thing’s for sure – he plans

to “rock out” and give the crowd a

good show.

The legendary Aussie rocker

will headline the day-long music

festival at Lincoln Domain on

March 3 alongside The Feelers,

Mental as Anything, The Mockers,

Stellar, The Narcs, The Ladykillers

and The Warratahs.

It follows this year’s inaugural

event, which saw Jordan Luck

Band, Mi-Sex, Dragon and other

Kiwi heavyweights play in front of

about 10,000 people.

Barnes, who now lives in the

Southern Highlands, New South

Wales, said he couldn’t be sure if

he had visited Lincoln before.

But he enjoyed playing in small

towns. It took him back to where

he started as lead singer in Cold

Chisel, he said.

“I’m looking forward to it, it’s a

beautiful part of the country,” he

said.

The Star

“I like to support the area, especially

after the earthquakes.”

Barnes said he enjoyed visiting

New Zealand and the “nob******t”

people.

“If I get the chance, I’ll buy a

place.”

When his music career began

in the 1970s, he never imagined

some of the songs would still be

crowd favourites today, he said.

Khe Sanh, which was recorded

in 1976, was an example, he said.

“When you get up and play

it, you can see young and old

and they’re all there singing it.

The song is as relevant now as it

was then. How it connects with

people, it makes it all worth it.”

And in spite of being one of

the best selling Australian music

rockers of all time, Barnes said he

enjoyed a variety of genres.

He was a big fan of Ray Charles,

Stevie Wonder, Paul Rodgers, Stevie

Marriott, Bruce Springsteen,

Neil Finn and even Sia.

“I had to sing Chandelier and I

realised how well written the song

is. I’m a big fan of hers.”

Barnes, who changed his last

name from Swan after his stepfather

Reg Barnes, was born in

Glasgow and emigrated to Adelaide

as a five-year-old.

Last year, he released his autobiography

Working Class Boy,

which told the tale of his childhood,

growing up with violence

and abuse, up until joining Cold

Chisel.

The next instalment, Working

Class Man, will be released next

month.

Although he hasn’t decided

exactly what songs he would play

in Lincoln, he reckons classics

such as Working Class Man, Khe

Sanh and Flame Trees will be in

the mix.

“I know I want to play rock ’n’

roll, so probably a cross section of

myself and Cold Chisel.”

And it will be a real family affair.

His kids, Jackie, Elly-May and

EJ, and wife Jane will perform

alongside him at Selwyn Sounds,

with son-in-law Ben Rodgers,

Danny Spencer, Lachlan Doley

and Michael Hegarty.

Barnes said he wasn’t sure

whether he would be staying in

Lincoln or for how long, but if so,

he would likely be out and about

looking for a nice place to eat.

So would he make an impromptu

performance?

“You never know.”

•Selwyn Sounds will be

held on March 3 at Lincoln

11am-8.30pm. Tickets are

ADVICE with

Daffodils normally naturalise in a garden requiring

little or no attention. However, when there is erratic

fl owering (given they are growing in similar soil and light), remedial work

on the bulb is required. Once the foliage has died down on your daffodil

bulbs, dig up the non-performing bulbs (fi rstly marking them with stakes

during the fl owering season) and check them. It’s possible that the bulbs

are diseased, have been attacked by some underground insect or they

may simply need dividing if they have been in the ground for many years.

Control fungal leaf curl in peach trees

• By Sarah Frater

LEAF CURL (Taphrina

deformans) is a common fungal

disease that effects peach,

nectarine, peachcott, and

peacherine trees.

It causes the leaves (and some

times the fruit) of the infected tree

to become puckered, curled and

much thicker than normal. If left

untreated the problem will get

worse year-after-year and reduce

the tree’s ability to produce lots of

fruit.

Over winter the fungal spores

take up residence in different

parts of the tree, but mainly in the

buds. When the cool wet weather

of spring and summer arrives

many leaf curl spores are produced

and are then splashed or

blown from tree to tree. Because

this is also the time the trees are

breaking bud and forming new

leaves, the new growth is easily

reinfected with leaf curl.

Controlling leaf curl isn’t easy

but good orchard hygiene habits,

which should be repeated each

year, will give you the best chance.

Plant your trees where they will

get adequate air movement – this

will help minimise problems.

In spring apply a light dressing

of a quick acting fertiliser such as

sulphate of ammonia to encourage

new leaf growth. At the same

time, I also recommend applying

a seaweed fertiliser to help the

plants’ immunity to leaf curl.

In autumn and early winter clean

up around the base of any peach

and nectarine trees and removing

as many leaves as possible. Because

these types of trees are susceptible

to leaf curl, I suggest doing this regardless

of whether they’ve shown

any signs of disease. Don’t compost

the leaves.

A copper-based fungicide will

help stop leaf curl on peach and

nectarine trees but it will also treat

fungal problems on other trees.

NATURE’S

BOUNTY: If

left untreated

leaf curl will

get worse

year-after-year

DIVA FEVER has struck town.

The choreography was clever,

especially the dynamic performance

of When I Find My Baby,

featuring gangsters and edgy

dancers, Ella Wilson and Jenna

Morris-Williamson, as hookers.

Clementson did a marvellous

job of the Philadelphia accent,

which was no easy feat.

While it sounded as though

the microphones needed to be

turned up slightly in the opening

number, Clementson is a strong

performer and her charismatic

stage presence made it easy to see

why she was chosen for the sassy

role of Deloris.

You cannot forget the slickmoving

sets, which add to the

visual finesse of the show.

Glitzy night clubs transforming

into beautiful neo-Gothicstyle

churches portray the theme

of the show beautifully and

deserved to be applauded.

There is nothing like watching

an unlikely friendship between

a diva and a group of nuns

blossom, and it was beautiful to

watch the nuns put their lives

murder.

are the bread and butter of this

Many activities at Auckland’s Sky Tower

• By Mike Yardley

IT IS Auckland’s exclamation

point, the city’s transcendent

landmark.

Isn’t it scary how fast 20 years

has zipped by since Auckland’s

skyline was first redefined by the

construction of the beloved Sky

Tower.

I was living in Auckland at

the time, hosting Newstalk ZB’s

Overnight Show, and the rise of

the tower struck me as the city’s

coming of age.

I recently enjoyed an Auckland

weekender to celebrate the

milestone anniversary. Picking

up a Thrifty rental car from the

airport, I purred into the city in

surprisingly short time, thanks

to the recent opening of another

engineering triumph – the Waterview

Tunnel.

Costing an eye-watering $1.4

billion, the largesse is mindblowing,

but it sure short-circuits

travel time in and out of the city

centre.

Twenty years on, the Sky Tower

is still a record-breaking tall boy,

maintaining its stature as New

Zealand’s tallest man-made structure

and the tallest free-standing

structure in the Southern Hemisphere.

BRAVE: Mike Yardley (right) with guide Daniel on the SkyWalk

which circumnavigates the Sky Tower.

Since 1997, it has entertained

nearly 15 million guests, whether

it’s to wine and dine, to indulge

in the gut-shuddering adrenalin

pursuits or simply to lap up the

lofty panorama. On a clear day,

the 360 deg views reach out for

over 80km, to Great Barrier

Island, the Waitakere Ranges and

the Bombay Hills.

ARTILLERY: The view from North Head one of the oldest of

Auckland’s 50 volcanic cones.

In addition to the tower, I took

the opportunity to sample some

of SkyCity’s alluring culinary

offerings. For dinner, I headed

to the rustic and Italian-inspired

masterpiece of Gusto at the

Grand.

Showcasing good honest food,

classic flavours and fresh seasonal

ingredients, the menu is curated

by celebrated chef Sean Connolly,

and the dishes are designed to be

shared.

My recommended share plate

dishes include Clevedon buffalo

mozzarella, heirloom tomato and

basil; Cloudy Bay clams, spaghetti,

garlic chill and parmesan;

or how about Sardinian ravioli,

potato, mint and pecorini sage

butter?

The sharing and pairing and

noshing continued the following

day over lunch, high up on the

53rd level of the Sky Tower at the

decadent roost, The Sugar Club.

This is the fourth incarnation of

Peter Gordon’s restaurant and

the décor evokes 1930s Art Deco

Italy with brass fittings, sublime

tableware and stone table tops.

The Fusion Cuisine menu is

centred around small seasonal

plates brimming with flavour,

with the finest produce sourced

from New Zealand, mixed up

with exotic flavours.

Take in the delightful suburbs of North Shore

•From page 37

I luxuriated for two nights at

Skycity Hotel Auckland which

offers stylishly appointed airconditioned

rooms and suites

with free WiFi, a big flat-screen

TV and an iPod docking station.

For best rates and packages, head

to www.skycityauckland.co.nz

After a tasty breakfast at Andy’s

Burgers and Bar and feeling suitably

fortified, it was time to follow

in the footsteps of Justin Bieber,

Tom Cruise, Michael Buble and

Beyonce and ascend the tower for

some elevated adventure.

The SkyJump and SkyWalk are

both operated by A J Hackett and

because I’m not really a fan of

bungy jumping, I opted for the

SkyWalk.

This soft adventure stroll

around the Sky Tower pergola,

192m above ground, sounded like

a very relaxing notion. But what I

didn’t envisage is that the pergola

doesn’t have any hand railings.

So once outside, standing on

the circular platform wrapped

around the strutting The Sugar

Club, I felt suddenly and queasily

exposed with nothing but air

on either side. In spite of being

harnessed to an overhead safety

line, I still felt hideously uncomfortable.

SPECTACULAR: For 20 years the Sky Tower has dominated the

Auckland skyline.

Summoning the fortitude

to stay on-task, my fellow

Skywalkers and I were led

on an exhilarating walk

around the Auckland skyline,

circumnavigating the walkway,

while our fabulous guide

snapped photos and video as we

performed sky-high ledge-leaning

exploits, along the way.

It’s an enthralling, heartpumping

and utterly

unforgettable experience. The

endorphin rush left me feeling

tingly for the rest of the day. www.

skywalk.co.nz

Beyond the CBD, I jumped

in the rental car and headed

over the Harbour Bridge to

the well-heeled, genteel streets

of Devonport. The delightful

suburb’s esplanades and parades,

HUNGER BUSTER: Try dining

at The Sugar Club or Gusto at

the Grand (right).

fringed with Victorian homes

and cottages, serve up sizzling

perspectives on the city skyline

and across the Hauraki Gulf.

We then headed up North

Head, one of the oldest of

Auckland’s 50 volcanic cones,

formed over 50,000 years ago.

The cinematic harbourside

views competed for my attention

alongside the historic vestiges of

North Head’s fortifications.

The sweeping collection of

military installations date from

the late 1800s through to World

War 2 From the summit of North

Head, I gazed over the golden

sweep of Cheltenham Beach

and the gigantic conical icon of

Rangitoto. Auckland’s greatest

natural letterhead.

Popular Corolla

builds on success

• By Ross Kiddie

FOR DECADES Toyota’s

Corolla was New Zealand’s

top selling motor vehicle

and with millions sold

worldwide I couldn’t

visualise that scenario ever

changing.

Well as time has served

to prove, new car buyers in

New Zealand aren’t leaning

toward the traditional

sedan/hatchback concept,

they would rather have

utes.

You would have thought

that if a ute was going to be

New Zealand’s top selling

vehicle then Toyota’s Hilux

would have taken the leading

role, well it hasn’t, Ford

has stolen the show for

the last few years with its

Ranger.

All that aside, Toyota

are still in the hunt with

Corolla, it is still the most

popular car here and it has

just had a fairly substantial

refresh. New for 2017 going

into 2018, the Corolla gets

more safety and style.

Notably, it has had a

fairly substantial facelift

with new grille, headlights

and bumper, and there

are LED daytime running

lights on the range-topping

ZR. There’s also a cosmetic

refresh inside, the

display graphics have been

enlarged and improved

for clarity, while minor

trim elements have been

upgraded.

For safety, the new

Corolla gets the benefit of

a pre-crash safety system,

lane departure alert and

automatic high beam activation.

These features are

on top of an already extensive

safety package.

This evaluation focuses

on the ZR which sits at

$44,690; the entry-level

sedan comes in at $35,990,

while a mid-spec GLX sits

at $38,990.

All Corolla sedans have

continuously variable automatic

transmission and it

is mated to the venerable

1.8-litre naturally aspirated

engine that has served the

model so well. Both have

had tweaks here and there

to improve efficiency and

performance, the new

Corolla also gets a sport

mode which encourages

busier engine behaviour

and livelier transmission.

That aside, there are few

surprises with Corolla, it is

the honest, capable familyfriendly

sedan and hatchback

that has carved out an

enviable global reputation.

It doesn’t do anything spectacular,

but it is intuitive to

TOYOTA COROLLA ZR: Desirable and user-friendly.

drive and simplistic to be

behind the wheel of. It will

suit many varying buyer

types, and the changes have

made it even more userfriendly

and desirable.

Under the bonnet sits

the 1798cc engine, it is a

twin-camshaft type with

16-valves, it is rated by

Toyota at 103kW and

173Nm.

Toyota also claim a 6.4-

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

1798cc, 103kW,

173Nm, continuously

variable automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.5sec

• Fuel usage

–6.4l/100km

litre per 100km/h (44mpg)

combined cycle average for

the engine which sits well

with the evaluation car’s

trip computer at 8l/100km

(35mpg) over five days.

The readout also lists a

6l/100km (47mpg) instantaneous

figure at 100km/h,

the engine turning over

very relaxed at 1800rpm.

On the subject of figures,

the Corolla also has

a healthy turn of speed. It

will accelerate to 100km/h

in 9sec and will complete a

highway overtake (80km/h

to 120km/h) in 6sec.

All of these add up to a

satisfying performance feel,

along with the knowledge

that a tank full of petrol

isn’t going to break the

family budget.

With Toyota’s experience

with the Corolla in this

country you can guarantee

it has been set up to compete

well with local conditions

giving the driver considerable

pleasure during

each and every drive and,

of course, all occupants.

The engine is lively

The Star

and works freely through

the transmission, the

seven-step CVT extracts

well the engine torque

characteristics and the

peaky nature of twincamshaft

engines. The

slow operating manner at

which the engine operates

at highway speed is an

indication that economy

has been an engineering

priority and that shows in

fuel usage figures.

In terms of handling,

the Corolla is well firmed

through the suspension,

Toyota has made changes

to the damper rates that

have made the suspension

more robust. The result is a

strong sense of stability as

the body moves just ever so

gently over the suspension.

I took the test car on

a challenging route with

many corners and many

varying corner types. It’s

hard to catch the Corolla

uncomposed, the quietriding

Yokohama tyres

(205/55 x 16in) have solid

grip and present the driver

with strong feedback as to

how they are reacting to

the road surface. The whole

car feels balanced and stable

through the chassis.

Comfort for all on board

has also been a manufacturing

priority. The Corolla

sits as a useful five-seater

and all passengers have

plenty of space to spread

out and relax. My only

complaint with the ZR-spec

sedan is that while it

caters for those who prefer

leather trim, there aren’t

any seat heaters, on a cold

Christchurch morning they

aren’t at all inviting.

However, it was good

to be reacquainted with

Corolla, it’s a case of a good

car made better through

upgrades.

You can guarantee Toyota

is working feverishly on

the next generation model,

and I’m so looking forward

to when it arrives.

In the interim, the current

model is still spectacular

in its own way, its success

through the generations

speaks for itself.

new zealand junior rugby feStival

September 22 - 24, 2017

The 2017 season has been very

successful for the St Thomas U13

squad. The boys are a very motivated

group who started with extra fitness

training in November last year, working

towards getting their bodies in the right

shape for the rugby season.

The boys have trained hard all year

never missing a session whether that

be outdoor team trainings or indoor

cross fit sessions.

The success they have earned this

year includes an undefeated season

retaining the U13 challenge shield for

13 weeks thus earning the right to

have their named engraved on the

shield. They then went on to win the

Under 13 (Division 1) final to earn the

title of champions of the U13 grade.

We have recently had 7 boys gain

selection into the Canterbury Metro

U13 team, 2 in the Primary Schools

Metro U65Kg and 2 in the Ellesmere

Representative side. The team now

focus on a North Island tour, which

includes two games in Auckland

against Rosmini and St Peters and

the New Zealand Junior rugby festival

tournament in Taupo.

The boys are very fortunate to have

a very hard working and supportive

group of parents and supporters that

have enabled them to fundraise for this

trip of a lifetime and they would like to

thank all of the businesses that have

sponsored them in this feature.

Pride captain in US for

100th international cap

CANTERBURY UNITED Pride

captain Annalie Longo is set to

become the seventh Football Fern

to rack up 100 caps this weekend.

Longo is likely to become the

latest centurion on a two-match

tour of the United States and,

while careful not to take her

place in the starting line-up for

granted, she’s looking forward to

the moment.

“It’s been a long journey with

some amazing girls and it will be

exciting. Hopefully I can get on

the pitch and we can do the job

against the US,” said Longo.

The US – No 1 on the rankings

and reigning FIFA Women’s

World Cup champions – possess

a squad packed full of experience

and world-class talent.

The 19th-ranked Ferns will

have the odds stacked against

them in Denver and Cincinnati,

but Longo is relishing the challenge.

“It will be good to see where we

stand and there’s no better opposition

than the US,” said Longo.

The 26-year-old works as a

women’s development officer at

Mainland Football and is enjoying

spreading the gospel of the

female game. “It’s nice to be able

to give back to football and try to

inspire other females to play,” said

Longo.

“It’s a little bit different putting

my coaching hat on when I’m out

in the community, but it’s exciting

times.

“We’re just heading into the national

league campaign with the

Canterbury United Pride so I’m

really looking forward to that.”

High school stars make NZ camp

• By Gordon Findlater

FIVE Christchurch players

have been selected for the

New Zealand Schools rugby

development camp later this

month.

Patrick Thacker, prop (Christ’s

College), Shilo Klein, hooker

Chapman, halfback (Christchurch

Boys’ High School), Isaiah

Punivai, centre (Christ’s) and

Rico Syme, fullback (CBHS), are

among 49 of the best secondary

school players selected for the

three-day camp.

Impressively, three of the players

selected from Christchurch

are year 12 students.

Thacker, Punivai and Chapman

all have one more year of

secondary school left, giving

them the rare opportunity to be

selected for the New Zealand

Schools team twice. A New

IT’S THE buy of the year against

the game’s best forward.

Parramatta’s Nathan Brown

and North Queensland’s James

Taumalolo will go head-to-head,

each in their inimitable styles,

in one of the most anticipated

individual clashes in Saturday

night’s semi-final at Allianz

Stadium, The Sydney Morning

Herald reported.

When the team last played, a

Johnathan Thurston masterclass

proved the difference as the

Cowboys notched an emphatic

win in Darwin. With Thurston

sidelined, another ‘JT’ – Kiwis

star Taumalolo – is likely to

prove the biggest stumbling

block in progressing to a grandfinal

qualifier.

Taumalolo was a standout

in North Queensland’s

upset win over Cronulla last

weekend, making 37 tackles

and 259m from 22 hit-ups.

His barnstorming try kept

his side’s title hopes alive and

ended those of the defending

premiers. Brown’s star is also on

the rise. Arriving at Parramatta

on a modest deal after South

Sydney deemed him unworthy

of a contract extension, Brown

has been a revelation this

year. He has been averaging

almost 34 tackles and 134m a

game, earning himself the Ken

Thornett Medal as Parramatta’s

best and fairest.

Brown said he was relishing

the opportunity to test himself

against the game’s best in an

intriguing clash of the No 13s.

“That’s what you want as a

forward, you want to be playing

against the best in the game,”

Brown said.

“I’m really looking forward to

the challenge. (Taumalolo’s) the

best forward in the game. He’s a

quality player and we’ve got to be

on our game against him.

“He’s a bit different to the way

I play but he inspires everyone

in the game. We’ve got to be

Fire rages, homes at risk

The Eels forward pack is one of

the most underrated in the game,

but proved in last week’s narrow

loss to Melbourne that it can

match it with any pack.

Parramatta prop Siosaia Vave

is expected to have his hands full

the field.

The pros and cons of

building sites

When selecting a building site weigh up your

lifestyle, family needs and aspirations before signing

up for any section.

Those purchasing early on in the

development of a subdivision will

have more choice of section size and

orientation to the street and sun. As

the individual sites are sold, there may

be less availability though this need

not be a deterrent. With good design

any building site can be made to work.

Selwyn has experienced considerable

growth in recent years. Sub-divisions

have opened up and been built on,

with new developments regularly

coming on stream. Within these,

section sizes vary from around 400

square metres upwards to 5,000

square metres. Lifestyle blocks are also

scattered around the district.

The size of the house and amount

of yard desired will influence the

feasibility of some building sites as

will sun and wind direction, bearing

in mind that a house can be designed

to capture the sun’s free heat and allow

for pleasant outdoor areas to enjoy.

If the street side of the building site

is north/north west, incorporating

fenced or planted courtyards can offer

private places to entertain and bask in

the sun.

Those wanting street presence

or keen on gardening may prefer a

corner section and while it might seem

they offer less privacy, with strategic

placement of fences quite the opposite

can be the case.

Weigh up your family’s needs in

terms of the outdoor areas too. Do you

want play areas for your children? Do

you have a need for off-street parking

for a number of vehicles and space for

a boat, caravan or motorhome, which

may need to be parked out of site of

the street? How much lawn or garden

do you want?

Start by identifying housing

developments that you like and could

see your family living in. Think also

about the convenience of shops and

other amenities, something that may

or may not be a concern.

Single out possible sections then

talk with a designer or builder. Most

building companies have a good

selection of standard plans as a starting

point and they will usually work with

a client to modify a plan or draw up

one that will work on a particular

building site, whilst also containing

the components the client is seeking

within their new home.

Before signing up for any building

site, check the Council land zoning

and recession plane requirements as

well as covenants for the sub-division.

These will show not only how far from

a boundary the house can be sited but

also roof height, permissible building

materials, and acceptable types of

fencing, as well as what can be on

view from the street like a clothes line,

caravan or motorhome. Conducting

your research first will save any

frustration or hassles later.

All sections are workable, it is simply

a matter of choosing one that matches

your specific needs.
