Doctor tells of

desperate bid to

save pensioners

Mates: Bruce Imrie with

rescuer Rory Clarke on

Sumner beach yesterday.

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A DOCTOR has spoken for the first

time of his desperate bid to rescue

pensioner Bruce Imrie and his wife

Maureen.

Junior doctor Rory Clarke saw the

couple’s car plunge into the estuary

near Sumner in March, and leapt in

after them.

Mr Imrie was rescued, but Mrs

Imrie died.

Mr Clarke had been travelling in

a taxi to a party in Sumner with his

girlfriend, orthopaedic doctor Tara

Kubba, and friend, fellow junior doctor

Oliver Beaumont.

He said they saw Mr Imrie’s car

fail to take a bend on Main Rd and drive

straight in front of the taxi, forcing the

taxi driver to slam on the brakes.

Mr Imrie’s car slammed through the

wooden barrier on the corner and into

the water.

Yesterday, Dr Clarke told how he and

Dr Beaumont ran to the water, where

the car was rapidly submerging, and

leapt in.

“Olly dived in first, and I just

followed him,” he said.

Dr Clarke and Dr Beaumont have

both been honoured by police with a

district commander’s commendation

for bravery, while Dr Kubba has been

given a certificate of appreciation.

PEOPLE DO remarkable things

when the adrenalin kicks in, and

on page 1 today we have one of

these stories.

Young doctors Rory Clarke

and Oliver Beaumont chanced

across a serious crash in March

when Bruce and Maureen Imrie’s

car went through a barrier

and ended up in the estuary.

Rory and Oliver didn’t hesitate,

leapt into the estuary and

desperately tried to free Bruce

and Maureen from the vehicle.

Rory and Oliver, and Rory’s

girlfriend Tara Kubba, have just

been recognised by the police for

their efforts.

Yesterday, Rory caught up

with Bruce at Sumner beach and

relayed their story to reporter

Gabrielle Stuart. It was a fairly

emotional interview, as these

ones can be.

On page 3 today, Gordon

Findlater talks to two of Canterbury’s

most promising young

golfers who today play in their

first LPGA event.

And on pages 4/5, Bridget

Rutherford reveals what we

all know – our roads are still

terrible.

Hospital staff in trouble over data use

• By Gabrielle Stuart

HOSPITAL STAFF have been

warned not to use their work

phones to play music and

browse YouTube, Facebook and

An audit of Canterbury

District Health Board staff

mobile phones found 40 per

cent of the work data used was

TWO Christchurch students

will tee off in the world’s biggest

women’s golf tour today.

Burnside High School students

Juliana Hung, 15, and

Amelia Garvey, 17, are following

in the footsteps of superstar

Lydia Ko by playing in their first

LPGA tour event as teenagers.

The New Zealand Open at

Windross Farm Golf Club,

Auckland, is the first time the

country has hosted an LPGA

tour event. It carries a purse of

NZ$1.85 million and will be

televised around the world.

Ko is a key factor in the

LPGA’s decision to include New

Zealand as a stop on its Asia

swing. Should Hung and Garvey

go on to accomplish anything

close to what Ko has achieved

they will be rolling in the dollars.

Two years ago, Ko was at the

top of the list of LPGA Tour

money earners, pocketing

NZ$3.88 million in 2015.

From playing in the amateur

ranks in New Zealand and

Australia to taking on the LPGA

Tour, Hung and Garvey admit

to some extra nerves as they

went through their practice

round on Tuesday.

“I was quite scared actually

because there’s so many famous

people and now you’re practicing

alongside them. It actually

feels unreal,” said Hung.

About 10 per cent of the

data was used by music

streaming services Spotify and

iTunes.

YouTube streaming accounted

for eight per cent of mobile data

use, blogging service Tumblr for

seven per cent, and Facebook

two per cent.

Garvey, who plays for Kaiapoi,

played her practice round with

Henderson.

“That was an amazing opportunity

to see how she plays and

to compare my game against

hers,” said Garvey.

“It’s nice to be able to play

with someone who’s in a position

I want to be in the future.”

Garvey qualified for the

tournament by winning the

New Zealand strokeplay championship

in March. Hung, who

plays for Russley, nabbed one

more than 1.3GB of data, and

He said a number of the apps

of the final qualifying spots for

the open by finishing in a tie

for third at the final qualifying

event, comprising of one round

at Royal Auckland Golf Club on

Monday.

It was a nervous wait for Hung

after she finished her one-under

round. She then had to wait

in the club house for close to

an hour while other players

finished their round, unsure

whether her score would be

enough to qualify.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of the condition of the

city’s roads? Email bridget.rutherford@starmedia.kiwi

Seven years on and our roads

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE STATE of more than

half of the city’s roads is rated

average or poorly, nearly seven

years on from the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

The city council’s transport

asset management condition indicator

said 25 per cent of roads

were rated average, 21 per cent

poor and 14 per cent were very

poor. Eighteen per cent were

rated excellent and 22 per cent

were good.

But the city council is confident

the statistics will improve

in the next assessment. The

report was prepared for the city

council’s finance and performance

committee this month.

Automobile Association

Canterbury-West Coast

district council chairman Roy

Hughes said the emphasis of the

roading work was wrong.

There’s been a major

downturn in tourists visiting

Christchurch because they are

not happy with the surface

condition. Millions of dollars are

being spent on changing the layouts,

but not on the surfacing.”

He said motorists were still

having to spend a lot on suspension

and tyre damage because of

potholes and bumps.

“Our members are very concerned

that seven years on we

have seen a lack of co-ordination

and sequencing of repair work to

improve the surfaces.”

The now defunct Stronger

Christchurch Infrastructure

Rebuild Team, which wrapped

up in December, repaired and

replaced more than 1.38 million

sq m of road.

City council head of transport

Chris Gregory said a

“significant number” of roads

were smoothed and resealed in

last year’s programme, and that

would show in the next round of

assessment.

POOR: The

roading

surface

the New

Brighton

Rd and

Wainoni Rd

roundabout

is bumpy.

MARTIN

HUNTER

“Council will be continuing in

the 17/18 sealing programme to

improve the condition of roading

assets.”

Further smoothing of roads

will be considered as part of the

long term plan, he said.

Mr Gregory said a significant

part of SCIRT’s focus was

repairing underground water

and waste pipes, and the roads

affected were made safe and

functional by SCIRT.

New Zealand Taxi Federation

Canterbury president Stan

Gane said taxi vehicles were

still damaging wheels and tyres

from potholes and bumpy roads,

particularly in the east.

“It’s hard to present a good,

professional vehicle when we’re

constantly driving on muddy

and dirty roads.”

Mr Gane said although the

surface on newly reconfigured

roads, such as St Asaph St, were

good, the layout was an “absolute

shambles.”

It was dangerous for people

getting in and out of taxis,

because they could not pull off

the road due to the high kerbs,

he said.

“We have major concerns for

dropping off and picking up

customers, we need to be able to

pull over,” he said.

The condition of the 2043km

of sealed roads, and 349km of

unsealed ones is assessed annually.

All roads receive a roughness

rating, and 25 per cent of

each road gets a visual condition

rating.

A report by the Controller and

Auditor-General Lyn Provost

last year said as part of the 2013

cost sharing agreement, the

Crown would spend $1.8 billion

on horizontal infrastructure,

while the city council estimated

to spend $1.14 billion.

Over time the arrangement

changed. In 2015, the Government

revised its contribution to

$1.689 billion, saying it would not

fund renewals, the report said.

City councillor Yani Johanson

said the repairs carried out by

SCIRT were not up to scratch.

“I think

people have

been conned,

they thought

they were going

to get their

streets fixed.”

Yani Johanson

He said the

roads were

poorer quality,

because under SCIRT they were

only sealed once, and the Crown

contribution changed.

But Cr Johanson said city

council staff were putting more

energy into making sure the

road maintenance was done

well.

But Minister supporting

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Nicky Wagner said the

roads were being repaired under

the Civil Defence Emergency

Management manual standard,

which required one seal.

She said a second would need

to be done as part of ongoing

maintenance.

Ms Wagner said there was a

lot of betterment through the

SCIRT works to both roads and

underground infrastructure.

“I do think there’s part of our

city the roads aren’t great that

will need to be repaired in the

long term. But overall, it’s a lot

better.”

Forty-five per cent of footpaths

were in an excellent

condition, while 87 per cent of

cycleways were.

Doctor tells of bid to save pensioners

•From page 1

Dr Beaumont has since moved

to the United Kingdom.

Canterbury district commander

John Price said their

actions had put them at considerable

risk, and required fortitude

and courage.

But Dr Clarke said he did not

feel like a hero.

“You can’t watch something

like that happen and not do anything,”

he said.

They were able to open Mr

Imrie’s door and get him out, and

pull him back to the beach.

But he said the car was swept

away within minutes, before they

were able to rescue Mrs Imrie.

By that time, he said other passersby

had joined the pair in the

water, including several surf life

savers from Sumner.

Mr Imrie said he believed he

had “blacked out” before the

crash.

The crash and his wife’s death

still haunted him everyday.

What happened afterward was

a blur. The only thing he remembered

from the rescue was Dr

Kubba bending over him on the

beach, trying to revive him.

Dr Clarke said the water had

been “freezing”, and both he and

Dr Beaumont were shaking from

the cold after only minutes in the

water.

“I think we were in first stage

hypothermia,” he said.

He had a bright red triple XL

knitted jersey in the taxi which

he planned to wear to the party,

which was fancy dress, so he huddled

on the beach in that.

Mr Imrie said he called Dr

Clarke for the first time after the

commendation, inviting him out

for a pint to thank him.

They had since built a friendship,

bonding over a shared love

of rugby. Mr Imrie said Dr Clarke

and Dr Beaumont had been

incredibly courageous. They had

saved his life.

He said the past six months had

been incredibly difficult for him.

His daughter, Gaenor, died suddenly

in Sydney two months after

Maureen’s death. He has also had

to wait for the outcome of the police

investigation into Maureen’s

death to hear if charges would be

laid against him.

Police decided last week to

close the case without laying

charges.

Mr Imrie said Maureen was

an incredible person.“She didn’t

deserve this,” he said.

He had met her when he moved

to London from Dunedin as a

19-year-old in the 1950s. She was

15, and lived across the road from

him.

He said children were her

life, especially the couple’s son,

daughter and two grandsons,

and the countless children Mrs

Imrie had taught as a nanny and

a teacher.

Mr Imrie said his wife had a

stroke shortly before the crash,

and had been terrified she would

have another one.

“She always said she didn’t

want to get old,” he said.

But after her stroke he said

the couple had made an effort to

spend as much time as they could

together, and had always said “I

love you” many times every day.

He struggled to face life without

her.

“I’ve found it tough to do

anything. You wonder why you’re

doing it, to be honest,” he said.

Bank sues ex-wife of fraudster

WESTPAC NEW Zealand is

suing the ex-wife of convicted

Lane Walker Rudkin fraudster

Ken Anderson for being a party

to the fraud and is seeking

damages of $50.8 million.

The lender claims Patricia

Anderson either defrauded it,

or was part of a conspiracy to

defraud it, by signing documents

she knew were false in

securing a $2.5 million letter

of credit facility, which masked

the financial strain the clothing

manufacturer was under.

She sought a number of

interlocutory orders for the

lender to amend its claim for

further and better particulars.

Associate Judge Rob Osborne

granted some of Anderson’s

requests and dismissed others in

a recently published September

12 judgement in the High Court

in Christchurch.

Westpac was left out of pocket

since it tipped Lane Walker

Rudkin into receivership in

April 2009, recovering $41 million

of the $130 million owed at

the time. It first served the claim

on Anderson in mid-2016, the

judgement shows.

Patricia and Ken Anderson

were signatories and guarantors

to the lender’s offer of credit for

Lane Walker Rudkin in 2001,

and Westpac claims they said

they were accountants, the

judgement said. The couple split

up in 2005, and a year later her

guarantee from the original offer

of credit expired.

Westpac claims Lane Walker

Rudkin began facing financial

problems from 2004 and had

a shortfall in working capital

which managers and Patricia

Anderson tried to bridge with

the letter of credit facility, which

the judgement dubs the LOC

fraud. The bank claims the use

of the facility was dishonest

because “invoices for fictitious

stock were created to enable

funds to be drawn down” and

that Anderson was executing

documents she knew were false,

the judgement said.

The company was more than

a century old and employed

hundreds of people who lost

their jobs.

The plaintiff alleges that if it

had been aware of the financial

difficulties, the fact that the

Andersons were not accountants

and the LOC fraud, it

would neither have released the

defendant from her guarantee

nor increased its lending to Lane

Walker Rudkin Industries and

the LWR Group,” the judgement

said. “Further, as a result of the

LOC fraud, its losses amount to

approximately $50.8 million.”

If Patricia Anderson didn’t

deceive the bank, it claims that

she conspired and combined

with management to perpetrate

the fraud, leading to the $50.8

million of losses.

Lane Walker Rudkin’s former

owner Ken Anderson pleaded

guilty to four fraud charges in

2013, where he made false statements

to secure lending from

Westpac, and sentenced to six

years imprisonment. He was

granted parole in January last

year.

The Serious Fraud Office

initially laid 82 charges against

Ken Anderson in 2011 before

his guilty plea, saying at the

time the fraud “had a profound

effect on the region, with LWR

having employed many staff and

enjoyed an international reputation.”

A PERMANENT alcohol ban will

The Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Hunting for black gold inside nearby

The search has begun for a fortune in oil and gas

which could lie inside extinct volcanoes under the

sea off Banks Peninsula. Gabrielle Stuart talked to the

Canterbury University geologist behind the project

CANTERBURY researchers say

hundreds of millions of dollars

in oil and gas could be buried

in extinct volcanoes under the

ocean around Banks Peninsula –

and they have a plan to find it.

Canterbury University

researcher Andy Nicol and his

team are working to

map about 100 known

volcanoes off the Canterbury

coast – and others

around New Zealand –

to find out where buried

fuel reserves may be

hidden.

That could open the

door for deep sea oil

drilling in the future.

This month they were

given a Government grant of

almost $1 million to fund the

research.

The project would take three

years, with the findings then

passed on to NZ Petroleum and

Minerals, the Government organisation

responsible for granting

oil and gas drilling permits.

Dr Nicol said the work could

be controversial, coming at a

Andy Nicol

time when protests are being

held over deep sea oil drilling,

and fossil fuel use is being discouraged.

But he believed understanding

the facts around fuel reserves

would be a good thing.

“From our perspective this will

give us a better understanding

of what we have

out there. Someone will

have to make a decision

about whether we stop

using fossil fuels, and I

don’t know how it will all

play out, but we need as

much information as we

can to make that decision,”

he said.

He said there had

been no significant oil and gas

discoveries in New Zealand for

at least 10 years, and petroleum

production was in decline.

“Current predictions

suggest that we will be falling

well short of our domestic

hydrocarbon demands by the

mid 2030s – assuming that

current predictions of demand

are correct and we make no

volcanoes under water around Banks Peninsula, and are

working to find hidden oil and gas pockets inside them.

new discoveries,” he said. He

said even a moderate oil or gas

discovery could contribute up

to $500 million in export value

each year, and $100-200 million

per annum in Government

revenue for 10-30 years.

Dr Nicol said some of the

volcanoes were covered in so

much sediment they were not

even visible on the ocean floor.

But over the past 15 years,

scientists had been able to use

soundwaves to build a map of

the rock shapes hidden under

layers of sediment.

“Some of them look just like

a volcano, buried: Essentially a

massive cone like Mt Taranaki,”

he said.

His goal was now to find out

what lay beneath the layer of

rock.

He said actually studying

the volcanoes was incredibly

difficult, because they lay

hundreds of metres under water.

Instead, the researchers

planned to study volcanoes

above ground to figure out the

patterns of how they formed,

then build complex 3D models

to map how they would have

developed.

They could also use information

about where fuel has been

collected in volcanoes elsewhere

in the world, which had

sometimes been discovered by

accident.

“Early on in the exploration,

quite a number of volcanoes

were drilled into which people

didn’t realise were volcanoes,”

he said.

He said heat and pressure were

also needed to form the fuels, so

understanding those patterns

could also help them learn where

oil and gas might pool.

“All the volcanoes we’re looking

at are dormant and won’t

ever be active again, but quite a

lot of them still have hot water

percolating through the volcanoes,”

he said

He said volcanoes have layers

of porous rock, which is often

where the oil or gas reserves sit –

but only if there is a layer of solid

rock underneath.

“If the porous layers go right

to the seabed, then it escapes

into the seabed,” he said.

The work is one of seven

‘Code brown’ in city pools

• By Bridget Rutherford

IF YOU’RE planning on going

swimming at Pioneer Recreation

and Sport Centre – watch out.

The Spreydon facility has

had the most code brown pool

closures out of the city council’s

three recreation centres – 41

since January.

According to the city council’s

faecal incident register, of the

74 closures of pools at Pioneer,

41 were for code

browns, 24 were

for vomit, and

nine were for

chemical reasons.

The leisure pool

was closed the

John Filsell

majority of times,

followed by the

teach pool, while the spa was

closed twice – once for vomit and

the other for a “faecal incident”.

The main pool had three code

browns and one vomit closure.

The longest was for chemical

purposes, at 12hr 25min, followed

by a code brown which

caused a nine-hour pool closure.

Pools at Papanui’s Graham

Condon Recreation and Sport

Centre have been closed 58 times

since the start of the year.

Thirty-two of those were code

browns. Six were in the main

pool, 12 in the learners, three in

the spa and the toddlers’ pool

was closed once.

Vomit forced 15 closures.

The longest closure was 8hr

45min.

Jellie Park Recreation and

Sport Centre had the least

number of incidents out of the

three facilities with 28 closures,

14 of which were for faecal

contamination and 14 vomiting

incidents.

Ten closures lasted overnight.

The Coastal-Burwood

Community Board came up with

an idea to offer free nappies at

city council pools to prevent code

brown situations, but it failed to

gain traction.

It wanted money to be put

aside in this year’s Annual Plan

process. But city council head of

recreation and sport John Filsell

said the provision of free nappies

was not specifically reviewed for

inclusion.

He said it had been looked into

previously.

“Educating caregivers to

ensure children wear nappies

and are taken to the toilet prior

to entering a pool is considered

more effective than simply

providing free nappies,” he said.

“Generally, the majority of

caregivers taking children to

swim bring nappies with them as

a matter of course.”

He said they were available for

sale at all city council recreation

centres, and promotions were

often run to help reduce pool

closures.

insurance companies daily

Fire rages, homes at risk

Health board members missing in action

• By Gabrielle Stuart

HEALTH BOARD members

are failing to go to disability

support meetings, forcing one

to be cancelled and leaving no

decisions able to be made at

another.

Five Canterbury District

Health Board members have

been appointed to the disability

support advisory committee, and

are paid $2500-$3125 a

year.

Committee deputy-chairman,

Chris Mene, has missed every

meeting this year.

Committee chairwoman

Tracey Chambers has been at

every meeting, but members

Aaron Keown, Anna Crighton

and Sally Buck have each missed

a meeting.

CCS Disability Action Canterbury

local advisory committee

chairman Peter Bradley said he

was concerned about the poor

attendance at meetings.

Of the four formal meetings

scheduled so far this year, only

two have been held – in March

and in May.

The next formal meeting is

scheduled for November, leaving

a wait of at least six months before

the committee can approve

FAILURE: Some members of the CDHB disability committee

have failed to attend meetings, leaving a six-month wait before

decisions can be made on issues.

any decisions around disability

issues.

This month’s meeting was

cancelled because not enough

health board members said they

could go.

Board members met for the

last meeting in July, but they

could not make any decisions

because half of the committee

members were not there. That

meant they fell short of the

required quorum to make the

meeting official.

Ms Chambers did not respond

to calls from The Star.

New CDHB board chairman

John Wood, who was appointed

to the role in August, also did

not respond to questions.

Mr Mene was overseas in Europe

this week, and said he was

not available for a call.

Mr Bradley said he would hope

and expect to see disability issues

at the forefront of their thinking

and actions.

“We know that disabled people

face poorer health outcomes

overall in New Zealand and face

Chris Mene Sally Buck Aaron Keown

every day obstacles such as lack

of access and attitudinal barriers

and unfortunately these are often

experienced within the health

system. We can’t take a break

from these barriers. So we would

expect the DSAC committee

return to regularly progressing

the issues that are raised by our

community, as is their purpose,”

he said.

Mr Keown said part of the

problem was that there were only

two external committee members

who were not members of

the health board, compared with

five last year.

They are CDHB health adviser

Sandy Lockhart and former

health board member Olive

Webb.

That meant the committee was

smaller, and it had more of an

impact if members were missing,

he said.

Mr Keown said the committee

had discussed appointing

other committee members, but

that had been held up by Ms

Chambers because she wanted

to find people who were “a good

fit with the direction of the

committee.”

He said he had missed a meeting

because it clashed with an

annual planning meeting he had

to attend in his other role as a

city councillor.

Board members on committees

are paid an extra $2500 per

year on top of their salary, while

Ms Chambers as chairwoman is

paid $3125 per year. That amount

can be reduced if the member

attends less than 10 meetings in

a year.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Booze top of police gift list

• By Sarla Donovan

A FOOD hamper, neck ties and

supermarket vouchers were

among the gifts received by

Canterbury Police District staff

over the past 12 months.

A central register is used to record

gifts and hospitality offered

to police employees.

Booze was a popular choice

of thank you. Sport Canterbury

gifted two bottles of wine.

A bottle from Timaru Boys’

High School’s hostel was accepted,

then donated to a local

retirement home. And shortly

before Christmas last year, one

grateful individual gave $400 of

alcohol to a Christchurch detective.

Other items included four neck

ties and a business card holder

from the Chinese consulate-general,

a $50 supermarket voucher

from the city council (which police

staff used to purchase items

for a food bank), a drinking flask

and two matching travel mugs,

also from the city council, and

a $150 restaurant gift card from

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School’s parent

teacher association.

Only one offering was declined

and returned in Canterbury – a

$75 supermarket voucher from a

member of the public.

The police policy statement on

gifts, discounts and hospitality

says “key considerations” include

how acceptance might affect impartiality,

police reputation and

public perception.

“Gifts should be declined unless

they are of nominal value or

refusing them will cause embarrassment

or offence.”

Nationally, a range of international

organisations gave

presents to police, including the

United States Naval Criminal

Investigative Service, the Five

Eyes law enforcement group,

Michigan State University and

the Taipei Ministry of Justice.

In the year to June, New Zealand

police received 217 gifts,

of which 31 were declined and

returned.

The most popular gifts were

alcohol, 38, followed by vouchers,

29. Event tickets, restaurant

meals and food also featured

highly. Along with golf towels,

desk clocks and paperweights,

POPULAR: Wine and beer

featured highly on the

register of gifts received by

the police.

there were some more unusual

items across the country.

These included two bags of

horse feed from the Lake Hayes

A&P Show committee, five massage

vouchers for stressed-out

police staff in Wellington, 20 free

tickets from Weber Bros Circus,

a Chinese New Year kit and

a “bag of biscuits” from an Auckland

individual.

And top of the list in terms of

value were five watches marked

with the King of Jordan’s insignia,

worth $3200. Advice from

the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

and Trade dictated the watches

be accepted, but due to their

high value, the recipients made

personal donations to non-police

charities.

Rules set for

facial hair trial

at school

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A CANTERBURY high school

has set the ground rules for a

new trial allowing students to

grow facial hair.

Lincoln High School is

dropping its clean-shaven only

rule after its students won a

year-long campaign for facial

hair.

A board of trustees meeting

was held on Monday to finalise

the rules and the length of the

trial period. The new rules

require facial hair to be tidy and

no longer than 3cm.

Facial hair must be

groomed and not extend on to

the neck. Longer beards may be

allowed for medical or cultural

reasons.

Board of trustees chairman

Adrian Paterson said the school

received a positive response for

the trial.

“We expected if anyone was

upset they would be getting in

touch but we haven’t really had

any of that,” he said.

The trial is expected to run

until the end of next year when

it will be reassessed.

SHIFT to a

Career in Tech

Looking for a career change? Tech is New Zealand’s third-largest export sector

and is growing fast. To fuel this growth, NZ needs more people with a grounding

in tech to meet the rapid expansion within this exciting and varied area, which

crosses into many industries.

SIGNAL ICT Grad School develops tech professionals to meet that growth via

Shift, enabling more people to enter this dynamic and diverse sector.

The Shift Programme

Shift is an innovative industry-driven programme for those who are seeking a new career path, who may not have a

tech background. Open to degree-holders in any discipline, learners in the current cohorts have various backgrounds,

from philosophy, sociology and marketing, to graphic design, engineering and science. Available in both Christchurch

and Dunedin, this 9-month programme offers relevant and current content to ensure you are well equipped to work

within the tech area, where the skills you have learnt in previous work and study are highly valued.

Partnering With Industry

Shift uses immersive studio-based learning and real-world industry experience to produce graduates with a solid base

of core computing skills, as well as the softer skills required in todays’ collaborative workplaces. The current Dunedin

cohort, which started in February, are now working

within local industry on a variety of projects, from

assessing aerial drone footage of coastal erosion,

to web and app development, and adding features

to an online educational platform. These projects

are tailored to complement their preferred specialist

tech area and enhance their employability.

Opportunities

With tech roles existing in nearly every area

from aviation to zoology, career possibilities are

extensive. Through the Shift programme, learners

can focus on software design and development,

or the allied roles, such as business analyst,

web designer, project manager, user experience

designer, technical writer, sales and client support

. . . and the list goes on.

SIGNAL’s Shift transitions graduates from any discipline

into tech. The July Shift cohort (pictured) is 80% female,

with several being mothers. Many new and mature

graduates are considering tech as a viable and lucrative

career option, and this is increasing as the range of roles

within tech becomes more widely known.

The tech sector can potentially offer flexible hours and work locations – making this an exciting and viable option for

those with families. Diversity is welcomed, and in the current Christchurch cohort, 80 percent are women, and several

learners in the Shift programme have young families. Shift is also well suited to new graduates who may be looking

for that X factor to boost their employability.

Situated at 181 High Street (Level 1), Christchurch (entrance off Tuam Street) in the heart of Christchurch’s growing

Innovation Precinct.

The next Shift intake commences in February 2018, and scholarships are available.

Call SIGNAL today on 0800 990024 and start your shift into NZ’s fastest-growing sector.

Last year, while acting as the primary caregiver for his three young daughters, he re-assessed his

career goals, wanting a career that was more flexible and portable.

‘I saw the Shift programme as an exciting opportunity to add specific tech skills to my knowledge

base, so I can translate those skills into a new career. For my industry project, I am working with

global infrastructure company Stantec NZ (formerly MWH NZ Ltd), and am looking at better ways

to present data from aerial drone surveillance of coastal highway areas, to assist the engineers in

their role.

The school friendly course hours have allowed me to carry on with my before and after school

duties, and this has really helped my family and my career training.’

Learning the lessons

AS THE pundits

pore over the

entrails of the

campaign and try

to predict which

way NZ First

will turn, we are

preparing the briefing to

incoming ministers that I

spoke about in my column

last week.

In many respects, it

doesn’t matter the makeup

of the Government;

what matters is that

Christchurch and its place

in the region are seen as

a vital component of the

future of New Zealand.

We need to resolve a

range of issues. Obviously

there is the Cost Sharing

Agreement signed just

four months before I was

elected.

There is work to be done,

especially on the matters

I highlighted last week –

our flood vulnerability

exacerbated by the

earthquakes, but ignored

THE morning

after election

night,

candidates

usually wake

up grateful, if somewhat

panicked, that they don’t

have a full 12hr day ahead

of them and with an

overwhelming sense of

gratitude to hundreds of

people.

It was no exception

for me and I am going to

indulge myself by issuing a

few of those people thanks

in this column.

Across Christchurch

thousands donned their

respective party colours and

toiled for hours to get their

team across the line. To all

of these volunteers, no matter

what party you choose

Lianne Dalziel

in the original agreement;

accelerating the remaining

projects in the central city;

and resourcing the future

use of the residential red

zone.

One of my major

concerns, however,

remains the need to

learn the lessons of our

experience, so we can

embed them into future

practice both as a city and

as a country.

After each event we

have experienced in my

term, we have conducted a

review so that we can learn

the lessons from what we

did well and what we didn’t

do so well. This is because

we often learn more from

our mistakes than our

successes. But not everyone

is keen to front up and

to work tirelessly for, please

accept my heartfelt thanks.

You are all the lifeblood of

elections.

It is not easy being a

candidate; it involves long

hours, is often thankless,

is always relentless and is

really hard for those close

to you.

Congratulations to those

who succeeded and thanks

to those who were not successful.

For some people it

will be a one-off adventure

that can be ticked of the

bucket list, for others it is

the start of a journey.

Jim Anderton once told

me he thought everyone

admit when we have got

things wrong.

We still haven’t

done this as far as the

earthquakes are concerned

and I am hoping that,

whichever parties form

the Government, they are

willing to look at what

each other have said in this

space.

Do we need an

inquiry into EQC and

the insurance industry?

Absolutely we do. So let’s

not make it partisan. Let’s

agree to some terms of

reference and get on with

it.

Do we need a regional

multi-use arena with a

roof? Yes, we do. So let’s

get the business case done

and let’s get it properly

funded.

It will be the largest

indoor arena in the

country, which makes

it important for New

Zealand and not just the

region.

Humbled by support

should run for political

office at least once as you

learn so much about yourself

and your capabilities.

And lastly, thanks to

the voters. I love the huge

number of people who I

met on the campaign. I

have formed some wonderful

memories.

I know I am personally

humbled by the faith Wigram

voters put in me and

I’m sure all candidates and

MPs feel the same.

It is a privilege to receive

the endorsement of

your neighbours and to

represent them, and their

dreams, for another three

years.

Medical students use robot

The Star is running a series

on the work of University

of Otago researchers

based at Christchurch

Hospital, ahead of a public

showcase on Sunday. This

week we look at a how

a sophisticated robot –

Alex – is helping to teach

medical students

CHRISTCHURCH medical

students are working with

actors and a high-technology

manikin to practice dealing

with acute patient scenarios

before encountering them in

the real world.

The programme is being

run by the University of Otago

Christchurch’s Simulation

Centre.

The Christchurch campus

teaches students from their

fourth to sixth years of medical

school.

Centre director Dr

MaryLeigh Moore said they

used actors from Hagley

Theatre Company as well as

high-technology manikins to

prepare students for practising

medicine in the real world.

The Centre had rooms set up

like a GP consultation room,

a hospital ward, and an acute

setting such as an intensive

care or emergency department

room, she said.

Dr Moore said in their sixth

year, students (called trainee

interns) took part in a scenario

involving fictional patient Alan

Gould.

Alan is played by an actor in

much of the scenario – which

saw him recovering from

surgery for an appendicitis,

developing a serious infection,

and then being followed up

after discharge from hospital.

Dr Moore said at the stage

when Alan has an infection

and is in the surgical high

dependency unit, students

interact with the centre’s hightechnology

manikin, a human

simulator named Alex.

Alex can be programmed to

simulate a myriad of medical

situations and was voiced by an

actor, she said.

The initiative is designed

to help the trainee interns

transition from student to

doctor and promote work

readiness. In particular, the

session focuses on ensuring

patients whose health status is

rapidly deteriorating receive

appropriate and timely care. It

also allows students to practice

their communication skills and

professionalism.’’

Dr Moore said senior medical

professionals were involved

in the programme, replicating

as closely as possible a real

clinical situation.

Hagley Theatre Company’s

artistic director Cameron

Mattox said the actors enjoyed

working with the Simulation

Centre to create a more

realistic patient experience for

medical students.

There will be tours of

the Simulation Centre at

the University of Otago,

Christchurch’s Showcase

this Sunday from 1-5pm.

The event will include tours

of research laboratories

and the medical simulation

centre, interactive displays

with the chance to speak

with researchers, and a

debate hosted by Gary

McCormick on whether:

years”. Details at www.

Our People

Chris Ward

Serving the stars at Chateau on the Park

Chateau on the Park

restaurant team leader

Chris Ward has worked

at the hotel for 37 years.

Bridget Rutherford spoke

to her about hosting the

likes of the Dalai Lama

and Neil Diamond, and

finds out what has kept

her there for so long

Can you tell me what your

role is at Chateau on the Park?

Well, I’m a team leader in the

restaurant and that seats about

100 people. We have a mix of

house guests and a lot of outside

tables as well, especially at lunch

time. I like the job, early shift

starts at 6am, then I have a break

at lunch, then the late shift goes

from 3pm until about midnight.

I meet and greet, and process all

the dockets and make sure everything’s

running right. We see

new people every day, especially

tourists, and it makes you realise

you live in paradise, because

they think we do. When they go

on tour and come back and it’s

so good hearing where they’ve

been.

You’ve been working there

for 37 years, what has made you

stay for this long?

It all started when I was going

part-time when my children

were young. My first husband

was a student so it was for a bit of

extra money. He died when we

were young and I was left with

three children and the hotel really

looked after me. They raised

money and had a garage sale for

me and everything, and I always

appreciated that.

Have you always had the same

role?

It’s always been pretty much

the same. It’s nice to give a few

tips on where visitors can go

when they’re here. I just got a

beautiful letter from an American

couple who stayed here,

DEDICATED: Chris Ward

has been serving guests,

including celebrities like Neil

Diamond, at the Chateau on

the Park for 37 years.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

saying how helpful my recommendations

were. They left me

all their contact details and he

was in the FBI, so he left me an

FBI badge to keep.

Have you had famous people

or regular visitors over the

years?

We’ve had people like Kenny

Rogers, Neil Diamond and

international cricket teams. Sir

Graham Henry used to come

here with his mother. If they are

a politician, I always call them

by their name, I think they quite

like that. We have a lady who has

been coming here for 18 years

every Wednesday and Friday

for lunch. She comes by herself,

she lives just down the road and

has two glasses of wine with her

meal and reads a book. She’s got

to know us and she’s such an

interesting person.

Did the famous people come

along and eat in the restaurant?

Kenny Rogers did. He was

really good and used to come in

for breakfast and lunch. He was

with his wife and was very sociable.

Neil Diamond had room

service. We had the Dalai Lama

stay here, I think he was here for

a conference. He stayed for about

three nights – everybody was

really excited about that. He had

room service with a lot of natural

food and fresh fruit.

He used to eat at something

like 4am and didn’t eat again until

night time. We’ve recently had

the crew from NASA’s SOFIA

plane who stayed for about six

weeks. We got to know them and

they were very interesting. They

gave us a big photo of the plane

and signed it.

Do you hold the record for

longest-serving staff member?

There was another woman

Nelly Fisher who was here nudging

40 years; she’s retired now.

We’ve have quite a few very longserving

staff members.

For you, what were some

of the more notable events or

groups you’ve hosted?

We’ve had the Lions tours over

the years. We had the Young

Farmers about eight years ago

and they took up the whole hotel,

all 190 rooms, that was pretty

huge.

What are some of the more

memorable moments?

Just the team work really, we

have a really good team and

we’ve had quite a few couples

working here, or who met here,

who have gone on to marry.

Any favourite groups to host?

I think probably the Lions tour

fans because they’re just here for

a good time really. They have

their first beer at 11 in the morning,

then they take their little

trips. We had a few this year for

the tour, even though we just had

a Canterbury game here. There

was a bit of friendly rivalry. The

cricket teams were good. My

colleague Donna remembers

once when the team bus was

waiting to leave, there was one

player, we can’t remember who it

was – he was part-Maori and was

bleaching his hair blonde. The

bus was being held up and he ran

out with bleach blonde hair, it

was funny. We also used to have

Air New Zealand staff stay. I was

working the day the Erebus crash

happened. The girls were down

having their breakfast when the

news came. It wasn’t very pleasant

because they knew a lot of

the people on board.

It’s a bit of a Christchurch

institution. Why do you think

that is?

I think a lot is because the

grounds are really nice, and people

don’t know about the garden

until they arrive because it’s

hidden from the road. The food

is really good. They know all of

us and they like to see familiar

faces. Peter Beaven, the architect

who designed the chateau, came

in after the earthquakes and said

it was one of his favourite buildings.

I said it stood up well to the

earthquakes, and he said it was

because there was far too much

timber and far too many bolts.

What do you like to do in

your spare time?

I love sewing but I only get two

days off and I get pretty tired. I’m

up at 5am and we walk between

10,000 to 15,000 steps a day.

I’ve just turned 63 and will take

a four to six-week break soon

because I need to get a new hip.

It’s probably worn out from all

the walking.

And your kids are grown up

now?

Yes, they are – my oldest

grandson is 21. I have four grandchildren.

My second husband and

I have 10 children altogether.

Has there been any naughty

behaviour from guests over the

years?

Not really. I know one guy got

boozed one night and fell down

the stairs. In saying that I’m not

sure what happens in the bar in

the early hours of the morning.

Was there much damage in

the earthquakes?

The pipes burst and our huge

big fridges that take two men to

move toppled and everything

fell out – it was just a mess. Liquefaction

came up through the

garden, but once the buildings

were checked, we all came back

to work to clean up. We were

back up and running in about

10 days and we had to open for

the emergency workers who were

over from Queensland. They

turned into long-term guests and

we got to know them well.

With over 200 sites to browse, unique

out for every woman and all ages. One

of the appeals the Expo has to visitors

is the variety of companies involved with

everything from bamboo tooth brushes to

gourmet vodka.

Renee Murray from NZME Events,

organiser of the Expo says “Our aim is

to have as wide of a range of companies

involved with the Expo as possible. Women

are all different and their individual interests

are so diverse. One woman may love the

latest in makeup or is looking for childcare

options but the woman beside her may be

more interested in sampling handmade

cheese or discovering travel and cultural

experiences. It’s great on the weekend to

see all the various women visit the show,

from teenagers to business women,

mothers to grandmothers and friends

simply enjoying each other’s company.

It’s becoming more common for us to

see three generations visit the Expo

together as well, with the daughter,

mother and grandmother all enjoying

the show and spending the day with

each other.”

Featuring lots of new companies

and everything from fashion and

accessories to travel, giftware,

fantastic food and wine, crafts, unique

businesses, beauty, eco-friendly

products, education, community

groups and so much more – what

interests the modern woman will be at

the Expo.

Take time for yourself; Have a Mother–Daughter day out or grab

the girlfriends and head to the Women’s Lifestyle Expo on this 30th

2 | Fundraising

Pink-themed walk to raise

funds for breast cancer

Pink Star Walkers are getting ready to

pound the streets for breast cancer at

the 2017 Breast Cancer Foundation NZ

(BCFNZ) Pink Star Walk in Christchurch.

Events are also being held in Auckland and

Wellington, taking place during October

and into November as part of Breast

Cancer Awareness Month, sponsored by

Estee Lauder Companies.

The annual fundraiser is a noncompetitive

fun walk, with no training

required before participating – just a

willingness to join a group of enthusiastic

women, men and children in support

of those affected by breast cancer. The

walks are held in the twilight hours,

providing a unique experience. There

is a party atmosphere at the finish line

with entertainment provided; walkers are

encouraged to celebrate and have a fun

evening out together.

The BCFNZ Pink Star Walks are open

to all ages. The walking courses are a mix

of five kilometre, 10km, or half marathon

(21km) option, depending on location.

In Christchurch there are the 5km and

half marathon options. The course must

be walked, not run, and participants are

encouraged to dress in pink, with many

groups co-ordinating their costumes as a

team and registering to fundraise.

Registration is through the dedicated

event website www.pinkstarwalk.co.nz.

The registration fee covers the costs of

holding the event and a small donation,

with walkers encouraged to set up

fundraising pages so friends and family can

sponsor their efforts. Funds are raised

through a combination of entry fees,

personal sponsorships and donations.

The Pink Star Walk includes a prewalk

warm-up. Walkers follow the route

marked by pink balloons, and rehydrate

via water stations available around the

course, manned by volunteers, who

are there to support and encourage

participants.

At the conclusion of the walk there’s

a festive atmosphere with music,

entertainment, and prizes awarded to

best-dressed individuals and teams, as well

as spot prizes.

“Our Pink Star Walks are a great way to

show your support for friends, family or

colleagues affected by breast cancer,” chief

executive at Breast Cancer Foundation

NZ Evangelia Henderson says.

The money raised by the three events

will help us achieve our vision of zero

deaths from breast cancer by pushing

Leadership | 3

Flying is another passion in Rob Hoult’s

life.

The importance of leadership

Following a 30-year career as an officer in the New

Zealand Defence Force, Rob Hoult left the service and

established his consultancy Team Leader Leadership

Development Limited. Forward 50 talks to Rob about his

career change, his passion for leadership and why we

need good leaders across all sectors of our community.

You were in the defence force for 30 years -

what made you decide to step back into ‘civy

street’?

I’d run out of things to do! I’d made the decision back

in the late ’90s to limit my career for the sake of gaining

stability for my family, and had made the Selwyn District

my home. The army had been fantastic in allowing me to

work in niche areas and thus not have to move around

over my last 10 years of service.

Were there challenges moving from military

to civilian life and if so what were they?

Surprisingly, there were very few challenges. My roles

in the military had been quite autonomous, and most

of them had required wide engagement across other

government departments and organisations in the

private sector. The hardest thing was leaving the security

of a salary and accepting the uncertainty that goes with

owning and running your own business.

I’m pretty laid back, but I also must confess that I

found people out of the military are a little more relaxed

about keeping to time – which isn’t necessarily a bad

thing of course.

I also had to go and buy a lot more clothes…there’s

something about the ease and convenience of having a

uniform. That said, I love being able to wear the work

clothes I want to wear.

When did you first discover your passion for

leadership and what triggered it?

I first tasted the challenge and satisfaction of

leadership as a high school student, both at school, and

through the Air Training Corps. If I’m really honest, I

think my attraction for leadership roles comes from

being pretty purposeful, and wanting to achieve. It’s much

easier to get the things done that you believe in when

you’re in charge!

I’ve never considered myself as a particularly good

leader – like many others, I am pretty conscious of what

I’ve got wrong, and it’s not good to get too big for your

boots.

What are the essential characteristics of

an effective leader and are these innate to a

person or can they be learnt?

There have been literally thousands of books written

on the topic of leadership, but that said, I do have

my opinion. Leadership effectiveness is pretty much

determined by personality – things like being curious

and open-minded, conscientiousness and determination,

being interested in and getting along with other people,

and having enough confidence to take on challenges.

So, whilst these things are to a degree innate, most

people have some capacity for leadership, especially

if they are willing to learn and listen to feedback. I

also think it’s important that those in leadership roles

understand that they are there to serve their followers,

as much as their followers serve them.

Why do you see strong leadership as

important – in the business community and in

society as a whole?

Leaders are the people that work out what needs to

be done to make the world safer and more prosperous

for their people (tribe, team, company, family, sports

group etc.) and then harness the individual efforts of

many into a strong and unified collective effort. It’s

all about understanding what motivates the people

that make up the team and pointing them in the right

direction to get the important things done.

What difference can a good leader make

and what are the outcomes if the quality

of leadership in an organisation is less than

ideal?

A good leader makes all the difference. The symptoms

of a good leader are a highly performing team of people

who get the job done whilst feeling safe, contented and

enthused.

Poor leadership is disastrous to a team or group. The

group won’t achieve the things it sets out to do, there

will be conflict within the team, and the end result is that

people leave the team because it does not give them

what they both deserve and need as a human.

How did you develop your Team Leader

programme?

I spent over a decade designing and running leader and

team development activities and courses for all levels of

the New Zealand Army and the wider defence force. This

has given me a very wide perspective on how to grow

capable leaders and high-performing teams. I also had the

privilege of leading military teams both in New Zealand

and in multi-national contexts overseas throughout my

30-year career.

Leaders and teams have similar characteristics

no matter what organisation they exist in. Once

I understand the culture and context of a client

organisation, I am able to use all of my expertise and

experience to develop world-class team and leader

development opportunities for my clients.

One of my highlights this year has been working with

the successful Crusaders Super Rugby team. My role was

to help them be the very best team members that they

could be.

Are there any leaders in New Zealand – in any

field – that you particularly admire, and if so

why?

There are so many outstanding New Zealand leaders

that it’s hard to single one out. Two that I will mention

are locals – Scott Roberston, the Crusaders coach, who

has a very expressive style, yet has a big heart – he

completely understands what makes each and every

one of his players tick. The other is Peter Beggs, the

boss of Antarctica New Zealand. Peter is an incredible

ambassador for Christchurch and New Zealand, and

leads through very strong values, a sense of fairness and

a keen curiosity for possibilities and how we can build a

better New Zealand.

coach and acting teacher.

Ensor comes to Dunedin direct from

working with Auckland Theatre Company

on their critically acclaimed production,

Boys. She has also recently worked with

Fortune favourite and maverick director,

Benjamin Henson as part of Auckland

This comedy will touch the hearts and

funny bones of every adult that has ever

Taking a break on the Camino.

Cycling for fun, friendship

and health

A group of Magpies ready for the start of

the A20 ride at Twizel.

What began back in 2004 as a couple of cyclists that

wanted to ride with people of similar ages and level,

without being ‘trashed’ by younger riders, is today a large

group of cycling enthusiasts known as the Magpies.

“In the beginning it was very much a recreational

ride for an informal group,” says group member Min

Sarginson, who joined the group in 2006 at the invitation

of founding member Eric Hunter, following her first Le

Race.

“When I started, there were would be about a dozen

riders on a nice day, then it grew and grew and now

there can be over 50 riders, with close to 100 who

would call themselves members of the group.”

There is a mix of ages, and both men and women in

the group, she says.

There were two regular women, both very good

cyclists when I joined the group, but there are lots of

women now, in ages ranging from early 40s to 80-plus.”

There are rides every day except Thursday and Sunday,

all year round, and the cyclists take a variety of routes.

“We start at Princess Margaret Hospital, and from

there some might go up the hill to the Summit Road, and

from there go to either Gebbies Pass or Godley Head,

then back, or stay on the flat.

“A favourite ride is out to Waterholes Road, then

Coe’s Ford or Motukarara/Green Park, then return –

always with a stop at The Store in Tai Tapu.”

The group has the numbers to break up into three

or more different groups, depending what sort of ride

people want to do that day, where they want to go – on

the flat or include some hills, Min says.

“Rides are either hard and fast, shorter and cruisy,

or something in between. When feeling fit enough I

occasionally join an earlier Saturday group who do 90

to 100 kms from Princess Margaret to Soutbridge or

Kirwee and back.”

Cycling, while mostly enjoyable, can also be hazardous,

as one member found out to his cost. Min recounts the

event: “One of the original Magpies, who was by then

in his 70s, called into my office in Lyttelton one day

asking for a glass of water to help swallow a couple of

Disprins he had bought at the chemist. This was before

the earthquakes – he was doing ‘long bays’* from his

home in North Shore to Princess Margaret, then round

to Motukarara, over Gebbies to Governor’s Bay then on

to Lyttelton.

“He looked a bit off-colour so I offered him a ride

home. He said a ride though the tunnel would be good –

rather than having to ride up over Evan’s Pass then home

via Sumner. It transpired he had crashed coming down

Gebbies Pass and was down the bank out of sight when

his friend, who was following him, thought he had gone

on so continued on his way.

“When he arrived home, his wife made him go to

the doctor, who put him straight into hospital. He had

broken his back and spent days in traction before being

allowed to go home in a brace. He was back on his bike

within weeks, and is still riding, but fortunately long bays

are out of bounds for the moment.”

Min says that in addition to the health benefits gained

from cycling, the group also provides a social gettogether

with the trips they do out of town always great

fun.

“It was particularly beneficial after the earthquakes to

get out and do something that felt ‘normal’. I have made

some great friendships through it as well.”

Those friendships and connections have led to trips

elsewhere in New Zealand and overseas.

“In 2014 a group of us went to France and followed

the 2000 Tour de France course. In 2015 some of us

went to Spain, following the Camino, and last year we

went to Sardinia and Corsica.

“A dozen or so of us go to Blenheim each year at

Show Weekend and ride the Grape Ride circuit one day

and a shorter ride around the vineyards on another. I

also do a family ride, which has become an annual event,

somewhere different each year – A2O last year, which

is the Alps to Ocean trail /road ride from Mt Cook to

Oamaru. This year we are going to Havelock North and

next year New South Wales.”

Min says anyone looking for a way of keeping fit and

making new friends is welcome to join the Magpies. “It’s

open to all-comers. You only need a bike.”

* Long bays was a popular ride of about 75kms

comprising a circuit from Princess Market Hospital

(PMH) out to Tai Tapu, on to Motukarara, over Gebbies

Pass Rd, round to Governors Bay, on to Lyttelton then

up over Sumner Rd /Evans Pass to Sumner and back to

PMH via Heathcote, Centaurus and Cashmere Rds. Since

the closure of Sumner Rd following the earthquakes it

can’t be done now.

French chic

for stylish

picnics

A festival of garden design

A new recipe book published by Australian publisher Smith Street Books features a

selection of French picnic recipes for s stylish outdoor feast.

The first book by Australian self-taught cook and food writer Suzy Ashford, Le Picnic

reimagines outdoor lunching as a chic activity that’s worth putting a little more effort

into.

Rather than taking along a sandwich and a flask of coffee to your next picnic, why

not make it a bacon and leek quiche, a beautiful potato and pork sausage galette or

cherry tomato tartlets?

As Ashford shows, classic French recipes can be easily transported and are not too

complex, or requiring hard-to-find ingredients and advanced cookery skills.

Le Picnic recipes include drinks, nibbles, more substantial fare, zesty salads and

delicate sweet treats. Start your picnic with a glass of Champagne with fresh white

peach syrup. Nibble on caramelised onion tarts, a slice of Camembert tart and a witlof

salad.

And finish with a selection of delectable treats including fresh raspberry tartlets

and white chocolate macarons. Be transported to Paris at your next outdoor feast –

maybe during Cup & Show Week.

Le Picnic: Chic Food On-The-Go by Suzy Ashford. Published by Smith

Street Books. RRP $35.

The lack of a garden show in the

Garden City will potentially prompt

Christchurch garden enthusiasts to take a

trip north in November for the Auckland

Garden DesignFest.

Featuring some of New Zealand’s best

professionally designed gardens, this

unique weekend festival, being held on

November 25-26, allows visitors to visit

up to 20 private gardens across Auckland.

Throughout the two days, the designers

will be on site to inspire visitors, who will

have the chance to lean more about the

creative process behind each garden.

Auckland Garden DesignFest joint

chairperson Rose Thodey says: “We

always try to have a diverse range of

gardens that highlight the benefit of good

design and showcase different styles and

sizes of gardens, from tiny courtyards to

large expanses, often with vastly different

budgets to match.

“We feel confident that we have truly

delivered on that this year and can’t wait

to share them with visitors in the full flush

of spring.”

The biennial festival, which is organised

jointly by the Garden Design Society of

New Zealand and Rotary Newmarket,

raises funds for Ronald McDonald House,

Garden to Table Trust and the Rotary

Newmarket Charitable Trust.

Tickets for the Auckland Garden

DesignFest can be purchased from

iTICKET, plus various garden retailers and

onsite at the garden gate. Choose from

$65 all garden tickets, $10 single garden

access or three gardens for $20. Optional

guided bus tours are also available.

Earlybird tickets costing $55 are available

until September 30.

The art of garden design

Landscape designer Joanna Hamilton

grew up on a farm in Canterbury and

went to boarding school in Christchurch.

She says nature, wildlife, plants and the

changing seasons were very much part of

her life from an early age.

Following university, travel and teaching,

Joanna had children and during their early

years developed a passion for gardening.

After moving to Auckland with her

family she returned to teaching while

“coming to grips” with a humid climate

and developing a love affair with subtropical

gardening. She decided on a

career change and studied landscape

design at Unitec for two years.

Joanna has been designing gardens

across the Auckland area for 17 years.

Her projects include large and small city

gardens, courtyard and apartment gardens,

country and coastal properties. She is one

of 19 talented garden designers selected

to participate in the 2017 Auckland

Garden DesignFest.

Forward 50 talks to Joanna about

designing gardens, and gets some ideas for

garden downsizing.

What drew you to garden design?

Living in Christchurch, I had loved

everything about the English garden style,

which suited the nature and character of

the city and worked well with the climate

and marked seasons.

Needing to get to grips with the

warmth and moistness of Auckland, the

lack of clear seasonal demarcation and

the fact that a whole new plant palette

was possible, I saw an opportunity to

expand my knowledge and apply it in a

professional way as well as developing

another personal garden.

What do you

enjoy about it?

Studying garden design opened up

so much more than an expanded plant

knowledge – it developed an awareness

of space, form, proportion, the interplay

of light and shade. There was much to

learn about construction materials, hard

landscaping elements as well as soil,

climate as well as building codes and

standards.

My love for plants remains paramount

– how plants can be employed to create

form and structure in a garden, provide

screening and shelter as well as texture

and colour is always to the fore in my

planning.

Do you have a signature or

favourite style?

Not really, although despite Auckland

verging on the subtropical, I do like to

see some seasonality in a garden. I admire

formal gardens, but those that don’t have

some seasonality are too static for me.

I’ve designed a lot of subtropical

gardens in the past, but more recently

have moved towards creating gardens

with less of a definite ‘theme’. I enjoy

working with families to make gardens

that are relaxed and useful and happy

places to be in. These frequently include

vegetable beds and fruiting trees, places to

sit and places for children to play.

Do you have favourite or

particularly memorable

projects?

Creating gardens for families are often

the most satisfying projects.

One aspect of Joanna Hamilton’s entry in the Auckland Garden DesignFest.

What was your inspiration for

your entry in this year’s Garden

DesignFest?

By DesignFest standards it’s a small

garden with the largest useable area

fortunately on the north side. I wanted

to make the most of the other much

smaller spaces around the house and to

make some visual impact, especially on the

eastern side, which the kitchen and living

room look out to.

What should people think about

when downsizing into a smaller

section?

• Make the most of all available space

both horizontal and vertical. Even on the

shady side of a house where the space

may be narrow and confined, an ambience

can be created, so that it’s a pleasure

to pass through or to look out on from

inside.

• Don’t feel everything has to be

smaller — a few large planters/pots make

more impact than myriad little ones.

• Small deciduous trees like maples

and Cercis are useful, providing seasonal

interest in spring and autumn, shade in

summer but not in winter and importantly

give some height and a sense of threedimensional

space that’s so important in

small gardens.

What do you think is the biggest

challenge of downsizing?

Deciding what you don’t need anymore,

resisting buying more things you

don’t need and as far as the garden is

concerned not creating a cluttered feel

especially on decks and patios.

Top tips for downsizing and

utilising smaller sections/spaces

• Use fewer pots and planters.

• Use a few large ones over numerous

small pots.

• Choose appropriate furniture for

the space – you may need to downsize

outdoor furniture.

• If possible, create two outdoor sitting

spaces and make one for eating and one

for low lounge-type seating.

• Apartment balconies don’t provide

much room for this, but a table that

seats four to six (round is efficient) and a

couple of low relaxing seats and a coffee

table can usually be accommodated.

• Vertical planters can be purchased

or made if you’re inventive, to provide

interest and subtle division of space.

Exercise for a healthy heart

Cardiovascular disease (including heart,

stroke and blood vessel disease) is still the

leading cause of death in New Zealand,

accounting for 33 per cent of deaths

annually.

Every 90 minutes a New Zealander dies

from heart disease, with 172,000 New

Zealanders currently living with heart

disease and limited by its impacts.

To onlookers it can seem

straightforward to make changes with the

threat of disease or early death, but for

many of the New Zealanders who are

inactive or at risk of heart disease due to

insufficient exercise, or unhealthy food

choices, making the change to a healthier

lifestyle can often be in the ‘too hard

basket’.

The statistics are alarming but are often

not enough reason for an individual to

take the first step to change habits, even if

health issues are starting to arise.

That’s where friends and family come in

by offering support and encouragement for

someone who needs motivation to make

changes – changes that may save their life.

A good place to start is with getting

active, as being physically active can reduce

the risk of getting heart disease by 50

per cent. There are also important extra

benefits through eating a healthy diet and

not smoking. The benefits are not just for

those wanting to prevent heart disease, as

exercise can also lower blood pressure,

and assist with reducing weight, which are

both risk factors for heart disease.

A good way to support someone to

get moving is by offering the support and

encouragement they need. This could be

offering to exercise with them, letting

them know how easy it can be and that

they are able to work at their own pace.

Exercising with them could be something

as simple as a walk or a stretching session

to begin, or you could offer to take

them along to your gym. Positivity works

better at motivating people, so focus on

achievements rather than stumbles.

Encourage them to talk to or get

information from someone who can give

them good advice, either from a reputable

online resource, or from a qualified expert.

The first visit with an expert need not

involve any actual exercise. Many exercise

professionals will offer an introductory

meeting to find out how it all works.

While images of fit-looking people

doing great things can be motivational for

regular exercisers, for someone new these

same images can be quite intimidating. The

reality is that while the media promotes

unrealistic body types, a look around a gym

or exercise facility these days shows just

how diverse exercisers are, when it comes

to age, size, fitness levels and health status.

It’s worth knowing that every minute

of exercise counts, with benefits

increasing with time spent. The general

recommendation is that 30 minutes a

day, on most days, is enough to have a

significant health impact. And the 30

minutes does not need to be completed in

one session.

Christchurch is seeing a substantial

increase in demand from the older ageing

population for fitness, exercise and personal

trainers, according to ExerciseNZ chief

executive Richard Beddie.

He says they now know not only that

exercise is needed as people age, but

also why this is the case. There are many

providers catering for the ageing market,

something that was rare 15 years ago.

Waikato University health and behaviour

doctoral candidate Wendy Sweet says

today’s ageing population, especially in the

developed world, have many advantages

over previous generations – not least

access to research into ways to stave off

age-related conditions.

Mr Beddie says Baby Boomers who have

not yet retired are in an excellent position

to take advantage of significant positive

benefits of exercise as well as increase both

their life expectancy and their enjoyment of

their later years.

“Living longer is not enough anymore. We

know people want to live better and longer,

by being active now.

“We believe the key message should be

regardless of age, start now. Because even

Baby boomers

getting keener

on keeping fit

people who are already in the older age

demographic, starting now will have huge

benefits, and the corollary of that is the

earlier the better. People should think of

exercise as their body’s retirement savings

system – the sooner people start, and the

more they do, the better they will be.

The key thing in starting now is do so

in manageable micro-steps. In many cases

finding an activity that the person enjoys

is key, be it dancing, tai chi, yoga, Pilates or

going to the gym. While there is a lot of

information and guidelines about how much

activity to do, in the short term the focus

should be on forming a habit of being active

– and using this to build towards long-term

regular exercise.”

Mr Beddie says hundreds of Kiwi personal

trainers, gyms and fitness facilities are

seeing a surge in older people seeking to

get fitter.

“ExerciseNZ is excited that there has

never been so much interest in how

Kiwis are ageing. With the last of the Baby

Boomers heading into retirement over the

next decade, they are not only the next

generation of older people but they will be

the fittest ever in our country’s history,” Mr

Beddie says.

Property ownership issues

EXERCISE THE MIND

For many New Zealanders, their home is

their biggest asset so it’s worth taking some

time to think about the way you own your

home.

There are two common legal forms of

property ownership in New Zealand. A

majority of couples own their properties as

joint tenants. The significant feature of this

form of ownership is that on the death of

the first spouse, the property automatically

passes to the survivor by way of a rule of

law known as Survivorship. It doesn’t matter

what’s in your Will, your surviving partner

will take the entire property in his or her

own name.

The second common form of legal

ownership where two (or more) people

own property together is as tenants

in common. Quite simply, this form of

ownership allows for property to be

owned in distinct shares – most commonly

as tenants in common in equal shares.

Significantly, the rule of survivorship does

not apply and as a consequence what

happens to your share of the property on

your death depends entirely on what you

state in your Will.

Life Interest Will

If property is as tenants in common, you

are free to leave your share of the property

as you choose in your Will. Often, a couple

will leave a Life Interest in their share of the

property to their spouse or partner. This is

called a Life Interest Will.

A Life Interest Will leaves your share

of the property to your Executor(s) /

Trustee(s) with instructions that they

allow your spouse or partner to live in the

property for the remainder of his or her

lifetime. Upon the ultimate death of the

survivor, your share of the property then

goes to the final or residuary beneficiaries

of your Will.

Residential Care Subsidies

As discussed above, if property is

owned as joint tenants, on the death of

the first spouse or partner, the whole

property passes to the survivor. Should the

surviving spouse or partner require longterm

residential care at a later date, they

will have to meet the Ministry of Social

Development’s (the ‘Ministry’s’) criteria

before qualifying for a Residential Care

Subsidy.

Under current Ministry policy, only the

income from a life interest is assessed in an

application for a Residential Care Subsidy.

There are strong anti-deprivation clauses

in the Social Security Act 1964. Any decision

to place your home into a tenants in

common structure must be for legitimate

estate planning purposes and not as a device

to qualify for a Residential Care Subsidy.

Changing the way you own your home must

also be done in conjunction with the rules

and regulations set in place by the Ministry.

As with all areas of law, it is important

that you seek good advice from a team who

understand how this area may impact on

you. At Harmans we have experience dealing

with estate planning strategies. Give Fleur

McDonald a call on 03 352 2293 to arrange

an appointment to discuss your situation.

In/Visible Landscape 2017 by Wayne

Barrar

Part of a Whole by Nina Overg Humphries, which is part of the ‘ARE Pasifika programme.

New & current works included in

public art exhibition

Included in the public art display in

Hagley Park is this impressive stainless

steel sculpture, Terminator T-Rex by

gregor Kregar

The 2017 season of SCAPE Public Art in Christchurch,

which runs for six weeks from October 7 until November

18, will again showcase a wide range of art and art-related

activities for the public to enjoy and marvel at.

SCAPE Public Art moved from its biennial model to an

annual, six-week season of Public Art in 2016, launching new

works and showcasing the extensive current catalogue of

major public artworks.

Over the past 19 years SCAPE has become the largest

producer of new contemporary artwork in New Zealand.

Providing a unique point of difference for the city, the

artworks are ambitious and high impact, enhancing the

urban centre and raising the profile for public art in

Christchurch.

Christchurch-born artist Wayne Barrar and Aucklandbased

Anton Parsons have been named as part of Time in

Space (territories and flow), the curated element of the

SCAPE Public Art 2017 season.

Wayne Barrar’s In/Visible Landscape 2017 drawn from

his extensive series of photographs, The Glass Archive, will

feature on a large banner on the outside of the Canterbury

Museum, and billboards at seven locations across Hagley

Park, with further pieces displayed inside the museum.

The Glass Archive is a large body of photographs

exploring the extraction, arrangement and circulation

of diatoms and other microfossils for scientific study.

Diatoms are comprised of tiny silica skeletons, remnants

of algae from millions of years ago and are often found as

fossils in diatomite deposits. Glass slides of diatoms were

sold to amateur Victorian microscopists, and have been

photographed by Barrar through a microscope, enabling us

to view the detailed forms and patterns not normally visible

to the naked eye.

Seven-large billboard works in Hagley Park including

ones of fossil marine diatoms photographed through a

microscope complement a large banner on the front of the

Canterbury Museum, and a giant colour pigment print in

the main foyer, both featuring arranged diatoms.

Anton Parsons’ work comprises two impressive

sculptures, Myopia 2017 and Acquiesce 2017, which are

forged from metal. They are located at Christ’s College

Quadrangle.

Myopia 2017 explores ideas about distance (both physical

and metaphorical) and perceptions of the world depending

on where you see things from.

Acquiesce 2017 also features patterning that is in braille,

but the meaning of the text is more ambiguous.

The 2017 artworks will be on show in a range of spaces

around Christchurch, with the Canterbury Museum acting

as the starting point for the exhibition’s Public Art Walkway.

The works by Barrar and Parsons bring visual and symbolic

impact to these pockets of the city, connecting to form an

integral part of the SCAPE Season 2017 Public Art Walkway.

The season will also feature a number of performance

workshops, and there will be a strong focus on Pacific art

with the ‘ARE Pasifika programme. Other highlights include

free walking tours on October 12 and 14 and Art By Tram

on Friday, November 3, from 6pm-7.30pm.

Full details of all the events and exhibits are on the

SCAPE website, scapepublicart.org.nz

new-generation

OF Suzuki Swift

By Ross Kiddie

Bang on cue a new-generation Suzuki Swift has landed.

If my memory serves me well, the last time a complete

newcomer arrived here was mid-way through 2011. Sure,

there have been upgrades and enhancements along its lifecycle,

but a model with a completely new shape and new

engineering has been a while coming.

Yet, Suzuki know the value of Swift in the markets where

it is well-established, and the concept hasn’t been tinkered

with, it is still the cheeky, small liftback that will slot into its

market segment, easily filling the role of its predecessor.

The new model arrives in four variations with the option

of manual transmission in the entry-level car (GL). It lists at

$19,990; $2000 adds automatic transmission. An automaticonly

GLX lists at $24,500, while a sporty RS model, sits at

$25,990. The latter is a three-cylinder 1-litre model which

has a turbocharger to promote that sporty feel.

The test car was the latter and I’m not convinced it will

be the volume seller. The entry-level and mid-grade models

share a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder engine, and I’m picking the

GLX will be the car of choice.

I’m due to drive it soon but in the interim the wee turbo

three-potter is a great deal of fun and, once again, I must

relate to the honesty of Suzuki’s small engine. My old work

car was a Suzuki Alto and I just adored the sound and

harmonics of the engine. The new Swift’s unit is obviously

quite a lot more refined and quieter, but you can’t help but

notice that there is something out of the ordinary.

Suzuki rate it with 82kW and 160Nm. Peak power is

developed low in the rev band at 5500rpm, while maximum

torque is available all of the way from 1500rpm to 4000rpm,

which means a broad spread of power. These are healthy

figures that will promote a 9.5sec standstill to 100km/h

acceleration time, which is pretty good for a 998cc engine.

Add into that a miserly 5.1-litre per 100km (55mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage average and you have a car that is

both fun and thrifty.

Unlike the continuously variable transmission in the

1.2-litre Swift, the RS gets a traditional six-speed automatic,

which incorporates steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters

that enhance the sporty experience.

Of course, if you select the standard drive mode the

engine management protocols provide the impetus to suit

each and every driving condition, but the point I’m making is

that if you feel like a spirited drive, select the manual setting

and the wee RS takes on a different demeanour.

The engine responds willingly, and while the turbo boost

isn’t dramatic there is a long sensation of forced induction,

it feels lively and to a subdued extent, forceful.

Until I drive the GLX, I’m suggesting that the RS version

has spring and damper rates slightly firmer. Not that they

take away any of the occupant comfort levels, but there

is a feel within the suspension set-up that suggests there

is some connection to the high-performing Suzuki Swift

of eras gone by. The RS also gets wheels an inch bigger

than that of the entry-level model, and even though they

don’t carry a huge tyre size (185/55 x 16in), there is direct

steering feel and controlled handling.

A lot of the latter can be put down to the fact that

the new Swift as a series is quite light (945kg), therefore

there isn’t a lot of load going on the tyres, which promote

a neutral handling feel. I took the test car on my usual

Hororata loop, and although it isn’t a demanding drive

the Swift RS quickly grew on me as a competent highway

traveller.

It works quietly and will corner briskly without complaint,

all the time providing the driver with solid steering feel.

The new Swift series has been built with the latest

safety advances and new technology to improve safety. I

particularly like the emergency braking back-up that detects

an imminent collision if it appears the driver isn’t going to

react in time.

In terms of the interior, the controls are located sensibly

and the in-cabin detailing is fresh and high quality. It’s a

mixture of the successful formula Suzuki has developed in

its small cars along with the additional components that

modern car buyers are demanding. I’m referring to the large

touch screen display, which commands attention in the

central console. It is home to the communication functions,

audio and satellite navigation. It also allows the connection

of Apple Car Play and Android Auto.

When I look at Star Media’s car park I see a solid

representation by Suzuki, we have Altos and Swifts, which

were chosen for reliability and economy, exactly the criteria

which Suzuki values highly as a manufacturer. I wonder how

long before the newcomer joins our fleet.

Chicken breasts stuffed with ricotta

and sun-dried tomato

Chicken lends itself to a variety of flavours.

This recipe helps to extend the chicken portion while at the same time offering an infusion of

flavours and moisture into the chicken breasts, which also helps to tenderise the meat.

It can be served hot with this mustard sauce and vegetables or sliced cold for salads and

sandwiches.

IngREdIEntS

2 chicken breasts

To make the stuffing:

4 Tbsp fresh, whole grain breadcrumbs

4 Tbsp ricotta cheese

2 Tbsp sun-dried tomato, sliced

1 tsp lemon zest, finely sliced

1 Tbsp basil, finely chopped

2 tsp slivered almonds or hazelnuts

100mls water

To make the mustard sauce 75mls lemon juice

1 Tbsp cornflour

1 tsp whole seed mustard

75ml water

1tsp honey

MEtHod

Cut the chicken breast in half cross-wise then slice each piece of chicken almost in half to form

a “butterfly like” steak

Combine all the stuffing ingredients except the water into a bowl and stir well.

Place 2 Tbsp of the stuffing onto half of each butterfly of chicken then close to form a parcel.

Secure each stuffed parcel of chicken with a toothpick or string.

Place the stuffed chicken breasts into a shallow baking dish with the water.

Cover with foil and bake for 45-50 minutes at 180°C until cooked.

Remove the toothpicks/string carefully from the stuffed chicken and set the chicken aside in a

warming drawer.

To make the mustard sauce pour the juices from the baking dish into a glass ovenproof jug, add

the lemon juice, cornflour mixed with the water, mustard and honey and microwave on high

stirring as it thickens.

Serves 4.

Each serving contains: Energy 960 kJ/ 230 kcal, Protein 31 g, Fat 6.5g, Saturated fat 2.4g,

Carbohydrate 9.6g, Sugar 3g, Dietary fibre 1g, Sodium 185mgs

vARIAtIonS

After squeezing the lemon for the sauce I usually put the remainder of the whole lemon into

the baking dish with the stuffed chicken breasts and water and cover while it cooks to draw out

more of the lemon flavour.

Make your favourite salad using a variety of greens e.g.lettuce, rocket, baby spinach or mesclun

mix, coriander or basil. Add sliced avocado and sun-dried tomatoes. Slice the chicken and toss

through the salad and serve with Tzatziki or Thai salad dressing.

It’s hard to go past pretty petunias

If you’ve got an area in your garden

where you want to create a

mass of colour, you can’t go past

petunias.

They are prolific bloomers

that, if looked after, will continue

to flower all summer.

You can choose from plain

purple, red, pink or white. How

about purple with dashes of

white like on the primetime

violet star? Or the duo red and

white variety which, like the

name suggests, produces a beautiful

mixture of red and white

flower?

Not sure what colour to select?

Then try a mixed bundle.

Don’t have a big garden to

fill with bedding flowers? Don’t

worry about that either. All

petunias really need to flourish is

a sunny, free-draining spot. They

grow equally as well in pots and

hanging baskets making them

perfect for just about any garden.

Once you’ve selected your

seedlings and sunny spot to

plant, simply dig small holes,

around 3cm deep and 25cm

apart, and plant.

Be sure to watch out for slugs

or trying using our beer bait. It

also pays to keep an eye out for

aphids. If you spot these pesky

pests, a general insecticide or

spray of organic alternative,

neem oil will sort that problem.

And make sure to keep them

watered. If you’re not sure how

thirsty they are, stick your finger

in the soil 2cm deep. If the soil is

dry, they will need a drink.

Then sit back and wait just

four to six weeks for your beautiful

petunias to bloom. Remember

to pick off dead heads to

encourage re-flowering.

BLOOMS: If pink isn’t your colour try a mixed bundle of petunia

seedlings.

GARDENING

ADVICE with

QUESTION I bought a lemon plant a

couple of years ago and it

initially flowered vigorously. I was advised to thin

out the flowering buds or lemons to stimulate

growth during the early stage of planting.

However, the plant was not producing many

leaves or new shoots and continued to grow more

flowering buds. Subsequently, I transfered the

plant to another sunny spot hoping it would

respond well with sunlight. Instead, the whole

plant started to shed its leaves leaving only the

flowering buds. What should I do now?

Today’s winning question came

from Jonathan Tan. Congratulations!

ANSWER

Generally, citrus trees do not like being transplanted. Physically they shed their leaves

quite quickly and often die as too many roots are cut or they have dried out at any

time after being shifted. Always remember that in Christchurch, like many colder parts of NZ, it’s marginal

to successfully grow citrus trees. Not only frost but also very cold, wet soils are quite foreign to citrus trees.

Growing your own nutritious vegetables is good for your health and

your pocket! To get the best cropping vegetable garden, ensure your

soil is well prepared and nutrient rich before planting.

We have a Daltons Vegetable Pack to get you up and

growing. Each pack is valued at over $95 and contains:

• Daltons Garden Time Vegetable Mix

• Daltons Goldcote Vegetable and Herb Fertiliser

• Besgrow Coir Mulch

• Daltons Organic Bio-Fungicide Granules

• PLUS a pair of comfortable,

versatile Red Back gardening

gloves from Omni Products

(www.omniproducts.co.nz)

BE IN

TO WIN!

$95

PRIZE

PACK!

From your description, we would assume the orginal planting site was not perfect for a lemon tree. It was

possibly a little shady or probably too wet in the winter months. Unfortunately, now with no leaves on the plant,

it can no longer photosynthesise and therefore sadly, it will probably die over the next few months.

If you decide to plant another citrus tree and cannot find the perfect spot in your garden e.g well drained soil,

full sun and protected from cold winter winds, consider growing it in a large container. This can be moved for

protection in winter and to take advantage of sun during the summer months.

Products to try: Daltons Compost, Goldcote Fruit Tree & Citrus Fertiliser and Daltons Mulch & Grow.

Every colour imaginable with dahlias

• By Paul Hoek

DAHLIAS ARE one of the best

value garden plants for summer

colour.

Planted in spring, they will

flower from December right

through summer to late autumn.

Native to Mexico and first

introduced into Europe in the

1600s, dahlias have been so

extensively cross-bred over

hundreds of years that the dahlia

family now includes a large

range of flower types, plant sizes

and every colour imaginable.

Dahlias are sorted into main

groups according to their flower

shape.

The most common types are

the cactus dahlia, with a spiky

appearance and decorative

dahlias which include a range

of forms from tight ball-shaped

flowers through to more open

forms called water lily dahlias.

As well as these two, other common

types include dwarf forms

ideal for borders or potting, and

single flowered forms.

Dahlias prefer a full sun

location, but will tolerate some

shade. Drainage is very important

as the tubers do not like being

water logged for any length

of time. In high rainfall or wet

areas they can easily be grown by

using slightly raised beds to help

with drainage.

Plant the tubers with the

crown just below the surface

of the soil and water in. Little

attention is required during

growing other than to make sure

they’re watered if conditions get

quite dry.

Removing old flower heads

will keep the plants looking tidy

and helps the plant to keep flowering

to the end of the season.

The flowers can be picked for

indoor use but will not continue

to open off the plant, so should

be picked only when they are

open already.

Dahlia plants go through different

stages of growth depending

on the day length. During

long day length in mid-summer

the plants produce a lot of top

growth and flowers. Decreasing

day length during autumn

triggers the plants into tuber

production below the ground.

The tubers prepare the plant

for winter dormancy and store

energy ready for growing again

next spring.

BOLD: Dahlias come in a large

range of types, sizes and colours.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

SPRING ONION PANCAKES

Ingredients

250g Plain flour, plus extra for

dusting

80 ml Boiling water

70 ml Cold water

2 Tbsp Vegetable oil

1 bunch Spring onion, finely

chopped

1 tsp Sesame seeds

Directions

Put the flour in a bowl and

add the boiling water, stirring

with chopsticks. This is called

‘burning’ the flour. Give it a mix

and once it has cooled enough,

continue mixing with your hands.

Add the cold water, a quarter at

a time, and continue mixing.

When mixed thoroughly, take

the dough out of the bowl and

knead on a flour-covered bench.

You may need to add more flour

as you knead. Continue kneading

until the dough is shiny and your

hands and the bench are clear of

dough.

Roll the dough into a ball and

place in a bowl covered with cling

film. Seat aside for about half an

hour. Take a piece of dough about

the size of your fist and roll it out

on the bench into a circle about

15cm in diameter. Spread some

vegetable oil over the dough, then

sprinkle over the chopped spring

onion. Sprinkle over the sesame

seeds.

Roll the pancake into a tight

cylinder, then coil it around into

a circle (like a caterpillar rolling

itself into a circle). With a rolling

pin, flatten this circle into a

pancake again.

Add oil to your frying pan and

heat to a medium-high heat. Add

the pancake to the frying pan and

fry until golden, then flip and

cook the other side until golden

and crisp. Serve as a side dish

with chilli oil or chilli sauce or

your favourite Asian-inspired dip.

Also great at breakfast time.

APPLE AND PORK MINCE

PINWHEELS

Ingredients

500g Pork mince

2 tsp Sesame oil

1 tsp Chicken stock, powder

1 tsp Celery salt

2 tsp Fennel seeds

2 Tbsp Fresh parsley

1 tsp Fresh dill

2 cloves Garlic

1 Onion

½ Ambrosia Apple, finely diced

with skin on

2 Eggs, one for egg wash

750g Flaky puff pastry, ready

rolled

Directions

Preheat the oven to 180 deg C

fan bake.

Combine the first 10

ingredients in a bowl.

Mix in one egg.

Divide mixture evenly onto

four sheets of pastry, taking care

to ensure you leave some space

on each edge (about 2.5cm) for

easy rolling.

Lightly beat remaining egg for

egg wash and brush the edges to

help seal the pinwheel.

Roll each sheet from the long

end and cut each into four

pinwheels with a sharp knife.

Place on baking paper on

oven tray and egg wash the

pinwheels.

Sprinkle on sesame seeds.

Bake for 30min until golden.

Travel

Fido-friendly options in Queenstown

• By Mike Yardley

WITH SPRING in bloom across

our adventure capital, the razored

ridgeline of the Remarkables was

still flecked in snow on my recent

swing through Queenstown,

accentuating the resort town’s

cinematic good looks.

The gracious old lady of the

lake, TSS Earnslaw, was faithfully

plying Wakatipu’s waters, but

eager for a fresh scoop of floating

pleasure, I boarded Southern

Discoveries’ gleaming catamaran.

They operate daily excursions

to Mt Nicholas Station, one of

New Zealand’s most historic,

family-run Merino sheep stations.

Spanning 40,500ha of golden high

country terrain, the 45min scenic

cruise down Lake Wakatipu

affords glorious vistas of Mt

Earnslaw, Cecil Peak, and the

tucked away valley beneath Mt

Creighton, where the Hollywood

set have reportedly purchased

homes, including Arnie Schwarzenegger

and John Travolta.

Arriving at Mt Nicholas Station,

you have a variety of add-on

sightseeing options including a

4WD safari, a 2hr high country

walk or the woolshed experience.

I opted for the latter, which was

a wonderfully hands-on exposition

of merino wool’s journey

SCENIC: Cruise to Mt Nicholas Station on the Southern

Discoveries’ catamaran Spirit of Queenstown.

from fresh fleece to top-end

clothing.

All Mt Nicholas Station merino

wool is sold to Icebreaker. As a

premium wine-growing region,

swooned over for its pinot noir, a

swirl of wine trail tours can whisk

you across the vineyards of the

Gibbston Valley and beyond.

If you’re short on time, visit The

Winery, a one-stop-tasting shop

in the heart of Queenstown where

you can taste over 80 wines,

including several dozen delicious

pinot noirs.

All of the industry’s rockstars

are showcased, including

Valli Bannockburn, Mt Difficulty,

Black Ridge and Amisfield.

Complement your wine sampling,

by grazing from a flavourful

platter of local cheese, salami

and olives. Speaking of food,

you’ve surely heard about the

insatiably cultish following that

consumes the footpath of Shotover

St, outside Fergburger.

Some locals are particularly

huffy about the constant tangle of

humanity crowding the footpath

outside the burger store, which is

open 21 hours a day.

Phone ahead and track your

order on the website. These

decadently delicious gourmet creations

are sinfully good. My pick?

FAST FACTS

•I booked my pooch-friendly Queenstown accommodation

through Booking.com which has an excellent filter, highlighting

lodging options for pets, in the destination of your choice. It’s

such a great time-saver, eliminating the fuss of having to check

with the property whether dogs are welcome. By the way,

there are actually 14 listed pet-friendly options in Queenstown.

With nearly 6000 New Zealand accommodation options listed,

Booking.com properties include an array of options from hotels

and apartments to holiday homes and campsites. Whether

you’re on the website or via the app, Booking.com is easy to

use with deals and total flexibility. www.booking.com

The Bun Laden – fiery, succulent

and you’ll be back for more.

Trending noticeably amongst

many Kiwis holidaying within

New Zealand is the desire to trip

away with your dogs.

I accompanied my parents and

their two furry friends on their

recent short-break in Queenstown.

The resort town probably

isn’t top of mind when it comes to

affordable paw-friendly holiday

destinations, but a highly recommended

roost, within walking

distance of the town centre is

Pinewood Lodge.

Walking options abound in

Queenstown and we gave the

pooches some solid workouts

on a variety of trails including

the stunning Mt Creighton track

and the gorgeous loops around

Queenstown Gardens and

Marine Pde.

Heading east from the town

centre, the Frankton Arm Walkway

is an absolute heart-stealer,

with its unobstructed lake and

mountain views.

We enjoyed coffee and a sticky

date scone, with crème and raspberries,

at the characterful – and

pooch-friendly – Boat Shed Café

& Bistro.

From The Boat Shed, the gravel

walkway wends its way along the

shoreline to Frankton, passing a

quaint parade of rustic Kiwi cribs

– a laid-back world away from

the glitz and pretence of some of

Queenstown’s more recent glamour

pad developments.

They’re anything but flashy. It

is such a great antidote to savour

this unmolested vestige of old

Queenstown.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

The Star

Experienced team committed

to customer service

If experience counts in motor vehicle

servicing and repairs, then Beach Road Tyre

& Auto must be a top choice for motorists

needing work done on their vehicle.

Owner of the business, Nick Coultas, has

27 years’ experience at Beach Road and

he has a staff of 10, all of whom are highly

experienced with a wealth of knowledge.

They repair and service all types of

vehicle, including those under warranty.

“If your vehicle is still under warranty

and needs something done, you don’t need

to take it to the dealer – you can bring it

in to us. We have the latest equipment to

service all late-model vehicles, including

five computerised scanners,” Nick says.

These days they are servicing hybrid and

even full electric vehicles as well, he says.

Servicing and re-gassing air-conditioning

systems is a specialty at Beach Road Tyre &

Auto Centre, while, as the name suggests,

tyres are a key part of the business. They

carry a huge range of tyres for all makes

and models of cars, including four-wheel

drives, and also do wheel alignments,

which ensure tyres last longer and save fuel.

“If you want it right, see us,” Nick says.

Now that later-model vehicles require

a WOF once every 12 months rather than

every six months, it is important for drivers

to keep an eye on their tyres for wear in

between warrants and have them replaced

if they are getting worn, Nick says.

“We are seeing a lot of very dangerous

tyres, so if you’re unsure how to check them

call in and see us.”

From WOFs to full servicing, and

everything in between, the experienced

team at Beach Road Tyre & Auto does it all.

And as Nick says: “If you’re happy with our

service tell others. If you’re not tell us. We

want to look after our customers.”

Driven

Subaru XV the car

for the spring skier

• By Ross Kiddie

I OPENED a recent email

from Subaru New Zealand,

it was directed mostly to

Subaru owners who were

travelling to the Turoa

skifield in the North Island.

As a gesture of thanks

for buying into the brand,

the company had secured

a VIP parking area for

Subaru vehicles.

I’ve often written about

the value Subarus are on a

skifield access road and my

latest evaluation is no different.

The weekend I had

the new Impreza XV for

evaluation, the weather was

foul – howling wind, freezing

rain and snow down to

low levels.

On the day I was testing,

snow drifts had lined the

roadside and conditions

were marginal. It’s not the

first time that I’ve evaluated

a Subaru under these

conditions, a few years

back I had conquered the

Lindis Pass on a drive programme

in near white-out

conditions with snow settling

on the road several

centimetres deep.

As a group we were

allowed past the point

where the road was closing

simply because Subaru’s

symmetrical four-wheeldrive

system is highly

regarded.

The point I’m making in

both these scenarios is that

when you need grip at its

most critical point, Subaru

delivers.

The new XV is exactly

that – brand new. It arrives

here in two value-packed

models, the Sport and

Premium. The Sport lists at

$34,990, the Premium adds

$39,990.

Alongside its Impreza

stablemate at $29,000,

the series – Impreza and

XV – are the bargains of

the 2-litre market in New

Zealand. That needs to be

reinforced, especially if you

add into the equation the

drive system, 2-litre engine

and the level of specification,

there’s little else on the

market which comes close.

The test car was the topgrade

Premium, although

it gets all the cool stuff like

leather trim, heated seats,

sat nav and sunroof, I’d

far prefer the entry level

model. I’ve driven it for a

long distance and it stacks

up as the most desirable,

it is just as competent

as the Premium and it

doesn’t miss out on much,

it even gets Subaru’s clever

Eyesight safety technology

SUBARU XV: Highly-regarded four-wheel-drive

system.

The XV is described by

Subaru as a crossover vehicle.

It’s not your traditional

sport utility vehicle but

more of a station wagon

on steroids, simply because

it is Impreza hatchbackbased.

• Price – Subaru

Impreza XV, $39,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4465mm;

width, 1800mm;

height, 1615mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1995cc, 115kW,

196Nm, continuously

variable automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.6.sec

• Fuel usage –

7l/100km

Its cross-country potential

is thanks to ground

clearance raised to 220mm;

that being the case, it challenges

the orthodox SUV,

and with technology such

as X-mode built into the

vehicle it is a definite offroad

vehicle. X-mode is

a complex array of management

programs which

enhance control and stability

on loose surfaces, it also

works in conjunction with

hill descent control.

I used X-mode when

exiting a slippery downhill

driveway at a friend’s farm

and it certainly puts the

driver at ease, the entire

four-wheel-drive system is

there to provide grip in the

trickiest of situations.

That is the essence of the

symmetrical drive system

in the first instance, grip

on all surfaces is enhanced

and even in dry conditions

you can feel the benefit of

power to all corners. The

Impreza as a series has

confident dry road handling

manners, it can be

pushed hard into a corner

and it will respond with

much composure.

Even though its sits tall

to provide the ground

clearance I mentioned

earlier, the XV’s spring and

damper rates, and suspension

engineering in the first

instance, clamp down on

body movement, the XV’s

handling is quite unrealistic,

it’s no exaggeration to

say it is athletic and nimble.

Under the bonnet sits

a horizontally-opposed

engine of 1995cc, it drives

through a smooth continuously

variable automatic

transmission. The engine

is a quad-camshaft unit,

and even though it has

been Subaru’s hallmark for

many years it is very much

state-of-the-art thanks to

continual development and

refinement, particularly in

the area of fuel economy.

The important figures

go something like this:

It is rated with a 115kW

power output with 196Nm

of torque – both healthy

figures. From a standstill

it will race to 100km/h

in 9.6sec, and in terms

of economy, Subaru list

it with a seven-litre per

100km (40mpg) combined

cycle average.

At the media launch

of the XV I had a solitary

drive from Napier to

Auckland, on that journey

the trip computer was constantly

listing a 7.7l/100km

(37mpg) average and a

instantaneous figure of

5l/100km (56mpg) at a

steady 100km/h (engine

speed 1550rpm).

During my latest drive

I didn’t quite match that

average, nor Subaru’s, but

at 8.2l/100km (35mpg) it

was quite close and reinforces

Subaru’s resolve to

be competitive in the fuel

usage stakes.

I’m greatly taken with the

Impreza XV, well actually,

the entire series as a whole.

It is quality product and

one which will look after

those inside when conditions

are at their worst. The

XV looks bold and aggressive

with its chunky wheels

and masculine styling.

Armstrong pushes for Italian

title after defeat in Germany

• By Gordon Findlater

THINGS MAY not have

gone to plan in Germany at

the weekend, but Marcus

Armstrong is making quite the

noise in Europe.

Going into the final round

of the German formula four

championship at Hockenheim,

the 17-year-old held a 1.5-point

lead over teammate Juri Vips

from Estonia.

However, Armstrong

didn’t get off to the best start,

suffering technical problems in

qualifying, which forced him to

start the first two races from the

back of the field.

But he managed two top-10

finishes to still be in with a sniff

of the championship going into

the final race on Sunday.

The talented Christchurch

driver started the final race

from pole position and finished

second, but Vips took out third

to win the championship by 4.5

points – the tightest margin in

its history.

“It’s so hard getting this close

and yet not winning it. On

the other hand, I have to be

satisfied, because it was my first

season and we have been very

FOCUSED: Marcus Armstrong (inset) is looking to consolidate

his lead in the Italian championship after narrowly missing out

on the German formula four title.

successful,” said Armstrong.

He would much rather have

the title, but Armstrong joins a

big name in finishing second.

Last year’s runner-up in the

German championship was

Mick Schumacher – son of

Michael Schumacher – who is

now racing in the European

formula three championship and

building towards formula one.

Armstrong still has a chance

of finishing his European

summer in spectacular fashion.

With two rounds remaining

in the Italian formula four

championship, he holds a

17-point lead over Dutch driver

Job van Uitert.

The next round of the Italian

championship takes place at

Mugello on October 8.

Panther, former Hornet

make NZ 18s side

• By Gordon Findlater

HORNBY Panthers second

rower Jordan Riki and

Parramatta Eels halfback Joseph

Taipari – a former Halswell

Hornet – have made the New

Zealand 18s rugby league side to

play the Australian Schoolboys

in Auckland on Saturday.

The team was picked following

the New Zealand Resident 18s

28-10 win over a junior New

Zealand team made up of

Australian-based NRL players.

Riki will join Taipari in

Australia next year. The 17-yearold

was scouted by the Brisbane

Broncos in 2015 and will link up

with the NRL club at the end of

the year.

A New Zealand 18s Select

team was also named. They got

the first crack at the Australian

Schoolboys on Tuesday night,

going down 18-26 in Rotorua.

Papanui Tigers prop Seth

Tauamiti was among the tryscorers

in the game.

The Warriors-bound forward’s

impressive physicality saw him

conduct several hit-ups during

the game. He will join the

Warriors at the end of the year.

The New Zealand 18s v

Australian Schoolboys game

will be a curtain-raiser for the

national premiership match

between the Canterbury Bulls

and Akarana Falcons at Trust

Arena.

Taumalolo’s journey to the grand-final

NORTH QUEENSLAND snared

a young Jason Taumalolo for a

stack of pizzas and loose change.

Now the giant Kiwis lock will

be leading the Cowboys forward

pack into the grand-final on

Sunday.

Former players are among

those who believe Taumalolo has

redefined what a lock should do

in the modern game, and he now

has a $10 million-plus contract

to back up the high praise.

Cowboys recruitment officer

Clint Zammit is the man who

changed history. He spotted

Taumalolo as a 14-year-old

playing alongside older kids in a

touring New Zealand junior outfit

which crushed a Townsville

high school team 10 years ago.

With the tourists departing the

next morning, Zammit had to

act fast. He was in luck, because

Taumalolo and his 15-year-old

brother Warner were accompanied

by their dad. “The way he

carried the footy impressed me. I

knew if he goes home, I’ll never

see this kid again,” Zammit told

foxsports.com.au.

“I raced back and did some

paperwork and met them at a

pizza shop. We met him about

9.30pm.

They had about eight pizzas

and I had him signed for four

years at about 11 o’clock. We

brought him out the next year.”

Warner, who ended up playing

under-20s for Parramatta, was

part of the deal, at their dad’s

insistence. The price – $1500.

Taumalolo has gone on to sign

a unique deal with the Cowboys,

for nearly $11 million over 10

years.

The heat killed me,” Taumalolo

said, recalling his arrival in

Townsville. “I didn’t get used to

the heat until about three years

later. I went out of my comfort

zone leaving New Zealand. It was

one of the best decisions I’ve ever

made.” With legendary Aussie

test prop Matt Scott injured,

Taumalolo has provided extraordinary

metres for the Cowboys,

averaging around 200m per

game.

Two years ago, Taumalolo

knocked back a big offer from

the Warriors, and they reportedly

had another crack this year.

Home

& Property

What do you have to tell

potential buyers when

selling your house?

When you’ve lived in a property for a

while it’s easy to forget some of its quirks.

You might be used to the fact that the

front gate doesn’t shut properly, or that

the bathroom windows need fixing. Any

potential buyers will be able to spot issues

like this when they inspect the property –

and can choose to fix them if they purchase

it. But it’s a lot harder for them to identify

other things you might have forgotten

about, like the fact that you didn’t bother

getting the appropriate consents from the

council when you built the deck 25 years

ago.

You might think the deck is fine, but you

need to front up about the consent issue,

not least because it’s the decent thing to do.

“When you’re selling a property you are

legally obliged to share all the relevant

information about it,” says Kevin Lampen-

Smith, chief executive of the Real Estate

Agents Authority (REAA).

“If work has been done on the property

during your ownership, either by you or

someone else, the standard terms of the

sale and purchase agreement require the

seller to warrant that any legally required

permits or consents were obtained. If you

knowingly fail to disclose unconsented

works, you are in breach of contract. This

means there is a risk that the sale could fall

over or that you could run into problems

prior to settlement. Even worse, the buyer

could take you to court for breach of

warranty.”

Your first step should be to discuss the

issue with your licensed real estate agent

and your lawyer, Lampen-Smith says.

They are likely to advise that you are better

off to disclose anything unconsented, or to

strike out the applicable vendor warranties

clause in the sale and purchase agreement.

“Once the real estate agent is aware of the

situation, they are bound by their Code of

Conduct to disclose it to any prospective

buyers. If you tell them about the deck or

any other issues to do with the property,

but ask them not to tell anyone, they are

required to stop working for you.”

Similar disclosure issues can arise over

more sensitive matters. Some sellers

worry about whether or not to tell an

agent or prospective buyers about an issue

that doesn’t relate to the physical state of

the property – such as it being the scene of

a murder, suicide or violent crime.

Here, deciding what to disclose is less

straightforward, Lampen-Smith says.

The REAA advises agents to take a

cautious approach and to consider each

situation on its facts, while recognising the

individual circumstances.”

The High Court has said that a more

recent event, especially one that might

have gained some notoriety in the local

neighbourhood, may have more bearing

on a prospective buyer’s view of the

property than a historic one. The location

of the event (whether it took place in the

grounds of the property or inside the

house) and whether the property has been

lived in since it happened, as well as the

likely reaction of potential buyers, should

also be taken into account.

The death of someone from natural

causes at the property does not need to be

disclosed, as this is considered an everyday

occurrence.

“If you are in this situation as a seller, it’s

best to discuss what to do with your real

estate agent,” Lampen-Smith says.

They cannot tell prospective buyers

without your consent – and if they decide

that a sensitive issue should be disclosed

but you don’t agree, then they must cease

to act for you.”

Whatever the situation, whether it’s

unconsented work or a tragic event,

honesty is the best policy. Talk to your

agent about how the disclosure will be

handled. There is no need to advertise the

information or tell everyone who wanders

along to an open home, but potential

buyers who have indicated an interest in

making an offer must be told.
