Hard-up

university

pays

$72,000

to recruit

leader

• By Andrew King

THIS IS Denise Cherelle Greig,

back in jail for ripping off the

elderly.

Greig, 31, was sentenced to 20

months jail in the district court

yesterday for her part in a group

which scammed a 69-year-old

couple and 93-year-old out of

about $50,000. She had previously

been jailed for the same

scam where more than $250,000

was stolen from unsuspecting

pensioners.

The scam involved Greig and

co-offenders posing as bank staff

and conning elderly into thinking

their power would be cut off.

They phoned their victims

saying there was a problem with

their payment system and said

they needed the PIN number.

The offenders would then

go to the victim’s home with a

Prezzy card, a debit card which

money can be loaded on to,

and exchanged it for the alleged

faulty card.

They then emptied the

victim’s account. Age Concern

Canterbury chief executive

Simon Templeton said it was

absolutely disgusting that people

like Greig saw the elderly as a

“soft-target”.

“She has caused a huge amount

of harm to these people,” he said.

A CASH-STRAPPED Lincoln

University spent more than

$70,000 recruiting its new vicechancellor,

it can be revealed.

The university paid out

$72,431 to

find and hire

vice-chancellor

Robin Pollard

from England,

who was appointed

in

January last

year while the

Robin Pollard

institution was

facing a $5 million deficit.

Lincoln University refused

to release the cost to The Star

when it asked in September last

year, citing commercial sensitivity.

The Star appealed that

ruling to the Ombudsman. After

discussion with the university, it

has now released the figure.

Chancellor Steve Smith said

yesterday Lincoln was not hiding

Prof Pollard’s recruitment

figure last year.

However, the university did

release to The Star the $86,540

cost of recruiting previous

vice-chancellor Andy West, who

resigned in 2015 amid concerns

he overspent on consultants.

At the time, Lincoln indicated

Prof Pollard’s was less than that.

Yesterday Mr Smith was unable

to provide a breakdown

of what made up the Pollard

recruitment cost.

THERE ARE some people

who deserve to grace front

pages for various reasons, and

they usually swing between

the good and the bad.

Denise Cherelle Greig is one

of them and she makes the cut

for all of the wrong reasons.

Greig is back in jail, where

she belongs, for scamming

elderly people out of tens of

thousands of dollars.

It’s not the first time Greig

has been on the wrong side of

the law and not the first time

she’s scammed the elderly.

She has a long history of

offending.

But ripping off the elderly is

just about as low as it gets.

Hopefully, Greig spends her

time in jail thinking about

her future. She was jailed for

20 months but will be out

sooner.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Is white bread toast?

• By Gabrielle Stuart

ZOE BARCZYK can’t remember

the last time she bought white

bread – and she’s not alone.

Lincoln University researchers

say the days of the white slice

may be over, as growing health

consciousness drives more consumers

to buy grain loaves, or

avoid bread completely.

For the Edgeware student,

her go-to loaves of choice are a

Ploughman’s Rye, or Vogel’s –

partly for the health benefits, and

partly because she prefers the

taste.

“Buying white bread wouldn’t

even cross my mind anymore,”

she said.

A survey of shoppers in supermarkets

by Lincoln lecturers

Sue Trafford and Sharon Forbes

found about half thought white

bread was unhealthy.

Of the shoppers surveyed, 80

per cent perceived multigrain

breads to be healthier than other

options.

It found 23 per cent of shoppers

bought white bread, and 77

non-white.

That was a turnaround from

the numbers almost 40 years ago,

when a 1978 survey of shoppers

found 89 per cent bought white

bread.

Supermarket scanner data

from across New Zealand

showed sales of white bread fell

four per cent last year, while

non-white bread sales rose 1.6

per cent.

But white bread still has its

loyal supporters. Parklands

said she often bought 10 loaves of

white bread in a week.

She said it was devoured by her

three boys, aged seven, 14 and 16.

“It’s the only stuff the kids will

eat,” she said.

If it was part of a balanced diet,

she didn’t have any concerns

about bread, she said.

“So many people are glutenfree

these days, I think bread’s

been given a bad name,” she said.

Dr Forbes said a lot of fad diets

pushed messages that carbohydrates

were unhealthy, but they

did not tell the whole story.

“I think the nutritionists need

to speak up a lot louder, because

there are a lot of things in bread,

even in white bread, that we really

need in our diets, like fibre

and folic acid.”

She said bread consumption

could also be reducing due to the

variety of products available for

breakfast or lunch, such as cereals,

smoothies, sushi, salads and

fast food.

The survey was carried out at

supermarkets across Christchurch

early this year, and included

responses from 141 shoppers.

Dr Forbes said a student involved

in the study, Emma Boase,

planned to carry on the research

in the United States as she studied

for her master’s degree at a

university in Missouri.

FAST FACTS:

Property linked to missing Michael McGrath for sale

• By Andrew King

A PROPERTY which was a

key focus of the investigation

into the disappearance of

Christchurch man Michael

McGrath is up for sale.

The property, in Candys Rd,

Halswell, was subject to a major

search and forensic testing by

police. It is the home of prison

officer David Benbow, a friend

of Mr McGrath’s, who has been

missing for 140 days.

Early in the inquiry, Detective

Inspector Darryl Sweeney

said Mr Benbow was a “person

of interest” who needed to be

eliminated from their inquiries.

Last week Detective Inspector

Sweeney would not comment on

whether Mr Benbow was still a

person of interest. He was not

available yesterday.

The 1980m 2 Candys Rd

property has a rateable value of

$680,000. It is a deadline treaty

sale.

Make Christchurch the country’s

• By Bridget Rutherford

A CITY of opportunity.

That’s how outgoing

Canterbury Employers’ Chamber

of Commerce chief executive

Peter Townsend has described

Christchurch as it continues to

rebuild.

He was the guest speaker at the

Star Media breakfast series held

at The Atrium in the Park.

Mr Townsend, who also sits

on the board of Otakaro, the

Royal New Zealand Air Force

Museum Trust Board, Pegasus

Health and the Hillary Institute

of Leadership, will step down

from the chamber next month

after 21 years.

He said after 11,000

aftershocks, 53 of which were

over five on the Richter scale,

Christchurch now had the

opportunity to become the

country’s city of choice.

Currently, $83 million was

being spent rebuilding the city

every week, he told the crowd.

Once complete, the total cost

was estimated to be between $40

billion-$50 billion.

said.

There is nowhere in the world

where around $30 billion of

applied to the rebuild of a city of

The Government had injected

about $8.5 billion, he said.

Mr Townsend said

Christchurch would be the safest

city in the country, because it

was being built to its “seismic

future.”

It would also be the most

city of choice – Townsend

Education options in Christchurch

were better by a “country

mile” and Canterbury’s health

system was regarded as being

in the top six in the world, Mr

Townsend said.

“We take it all for granted.”

Infrastructure was another

drawcard, he said, with projects

such as the northern corridor

and the southern motorway

making Christchurch more accessible.

He said we did not yet have the

population to support light rail.

But he said at some stage the

city’s population needed to grow

perhaps by another “couple

hundred thousand,” and at that

point, light rail would work.

“If we want to achieve our economic

growth and employment

projections, we need five times

the historic long-term average of

migrants coming to live in our

region.”

He said the unemployment rate

in Christchurch was only 4.9 per

cent.

“We are an ageing population,

if we don’t bring young people in

to continue to grow this economy

sustainably then we’re in trouble

as a city.”

Developer Ernest Duval said he

was optimistic, but with the way

technology was moving forward,

the city’s infrastructure and

buildings were only part of that.

He said nowadays people could

work anywhere in the world, so

Christchurch needed vibrancy,

innovation, affordable housing

and had to be adjustable to

change.

“We have a city that is now

more fit for purpose than what

it’s been in the past, but it’s still

got a way to go yet,” he said.

“We’ve got to make this city attractive

for young talent to come

here and bring their ideas.”

Mr Duval said unlike the rebuild

of the city’s infrastructure,

time lines could not be imposed

on making that happen.

He believed the city’s population

was always going to grow

“It will grow because we’ve got

space, affordable housing and

good amenities, and we’re the

capital of the South Island.”

Mr Townsend said Christchurch

was the only city in the

world with less than a million

people that had a daily Airbus

380 service – the largest passenger

airliner.

Meanwhile, the region was offering

more than just dairy.

Minister supporting Greater

Wagner said that was an “excellent

idea” and would be considered

as part of the work.

“Forty-five per cent of our tourists

Ms Wagner said there were

more opportunities post-earthquake,

with new facilities such

as the Innovation and Health

Precincts.

She said more tourism, businesses

and people in the central

city would add to that.

Mr Townsend said the perception

the residential red zone land

was a “wasteland” was wrong,

and it was a critical part of the

city’s regeneration.

“It’s just land that shouldn’t

have been built on the way it

was.”

He said people needed to hear

about the city’s positive story.

“We are still perceived externally

as a city that’s whingeing

about its earthquake that was exemplified

by a broken Cathedral,

and we all need to move on from

that.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

Cantabrians have a taste for dining out

• By Gabrielle Stuart

EVERY TABLE was full at Little

High Eatery yesterday, where

Roger Townshend was enjoying

a pizza with his daughter Sarah

Harrison and grandchildren Jet

and Willow.

They are part of a wave of

Cantabrians regularly eating out,

according to figures released by

Westpac yesterday.

Cantabrians spend an average

of $380 a month at restaurants or

cafes, according to the figures, or

about $89 a week.

That was the third-highest

spend in the country, behind

Auckland at $486 and

Wellington $436.

When asked how much they

spent eating out, the Moncks Bay

residents had one response: “Too

much.”

Ms Harrison said she usually

ate out for dinner once a week,

but bought a coffee every day –

so she said her weekly spend was

around the $89 average.

Mr Townshend, a semi-retired

businessman, said he spent a lot

more.

He said his total spend varied

too much to put a figure on it,

but he went out for lunch or

dinner at least five times a week,

as well as going out for at least

one coffee a week.

He said it was a good way to

catch up with friends and he

liked supporting Canterbury

businesses.

“We’re pretty loyal to our local

cafes and businesses in Sumner,”

he said.

Both said seeing new cafes and

restaurants opening up around

the city prompted them to eat

out more.

“A big part of Christchurch is

our cafe and restaurant culture.

Places like this are affordable,

accessible, easy,” Ms Harrison

said.

Cantabrians aged between 36

and 55 spent the most eating out,

with an average monthly spend

of $453.

Cantabrians’ average monthly

spending:

•$380 on eating out

•$657 on groceries

•$204 on entertainment

•$217 on health and beauty

Cantabrians aged 56 or older

spent the least – an average of

$318 – while those aged 18 to 35

spent an average of $366.

The figures are based on the

spending patterns of 96,000

Westpac customers, and are

broken down through its

CashNav app.

Westpac NZ general manager

of marketing, products and

transformation Andrew Kerr

linked the results to the rebuild.

“With Canterbury getting back

on its feet economically and an

array of fantastic new cafes and

restaurants opening, it’s probably

not surprising that Cantabrians

spend the third most on eating

out, but it’s worth keeping a close

watch on that spending,” he said.

The figures showed

Cantabrians in the 36-55 age

bracket were also the biggest

spenders at supermarkets,

spending an average of $820 per

month – about $153 per week.

Those 56 or older spent $670

per month, while those under-35

spent the least – $494.

Over a month, the average

Cantabrian spent $204 on

entertainment, like movies,

concerts and gambling, and $217

on health and beauty through

places like pharmacies, gyms

and beauty salons.

Shand’s facelift nearly finished

• By Bridget Rutherford

RESTORATION WORK on the

city’s oldest wooden commercial

building is nearly finished.

Christchurch Heritage Trust

is restoring the historic Shand’s

building, formerly known as

Shand’s Emporium, to its former

glory.

Trust chairwoman Anna

Crighton said the $500,000 project

was “almost finished.”

She said it just needed door

hardware installed, the kitchen

had to be installed, and the carpet

needed to be laid, which was

expected to be done within the

month.

The work had been delayed

due to poor weather and the road

works on Manchester St, which

had made access to the site difficult,

she said.

A small group had a celebration

recently to pay tribute to those

who had helped restore the building,

including the city council,

which put a $172,219 heritage

incentive grant into it, Dulux,

which sponsored the paint, and

Signtech, which did the gold sign

on the window.

“It’s the oldest wooden commercial

building left in the city.

It’s dated right from colonial

times, we just don’t have any left

in the city. It’s got nostalgia,” Dr

Crighton said.

The category one heritage

building was built in 1860 by John

Shand. It used to be owned by Antony

Gough, and sat on Hereford

St.

But Mr Gough sold it to

Christchurch Heritage Trust for

$1 to make way for The Terrace,

and it was moved next to Trinity

Congregational Church on Manchester

St, which the trust was also

restoring.

Dr Crighton said there had

been a lot of interest in leasing the

both the Shand’s building and the

church. She hoped tenants would

be confirmed before Christmas.

There’s people interested in

taking the whole lot.”

She said the restoration of the

1875 church was on track to finish

in December.

Both buildings are now connected

by an annex, which has

two offices, a kitchen and a toilet.

In Brief

METH LEVELS IN UNITS

Methamphetamine testing

carried out on the city council’s

99 social housing units over

July and August found 15

tested positive. But of those,

only one was not fit to occupy

because the levels were over the

Ministry of Health guidelines.

One contaminated property

was remediated through an

insurer. Currently, there are

11 properties offline due to

contamination, while six have

remediation costs between

$35,000-$50,000, which are

currently pending insurance

company acceptance of claims.

DROP THE BOSS

Thirty two Canterbury bosses

will abseil off Cashel St’s Les

Mills building in the name of

charity tomorrow. They will

compete for the 2017 Drop

Your Boss Trophy, which will

go to the boss that raises the

most money. The aim is to raise

$30,000 to go to the Graeme

Dingle Foundation, which

delivers youth development

programmes. Special guests

include Mike Pero, city

councillor Deon Swiggs,

Tactix player Erikana Pedersen

and Peter Sherwin of Grant

Thornton.

Southern Motorway on track

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A THIRD of the $195 million

Southern Motorway upgrade has

been finished.

The Christchurch Southern

Motorway Stage 2 is on target

to be ready by early 2020, which

will see a section of Main South

Rd widened to four lanes and

the project linked up to the

Halswell Junction Rd end of the

motorway.

Work on the major project has

been under way since November

and is set to ramp up as summer

approaches.

The motorway aims to halve

the travel time between Rolleston

and Christchurch from 30 to

about 15min.

Over winter, more than

300,000 cu m of earth was

moved, two new roads built

•From page 1

Mr Smith said at the time the

“significant interest” was with

Dr West’s appointment, and it

wouldn’t have been appropriate

to release Prof Pollard’s cost

because he had just started.

“That was in our view an

entirely appropriate figure and

in line with

what we would

expect. At that

time we certainly

needed

someone new,

Andy West

leadership and

a very good

person to lead,

and it was important to get

someone to do that.”

Since Prof Pollard started,

Lincoln turned its deficit into a

$17 million surplus in the last

year, after staff and course cuts,

restructuring and transferring

its Telford Campus.

In comparison, the recruitment

cost for Otakaro chief

executive Albert Brantley

was $108,000, Development

Christchurch spent $50,332 for

boss Rob Hall and Regenerate

Christchurch spent $42,000

recruiting chief executive Ivan

Iafeta.

All released the costs to The

Star last year when asked.

Tertiary Education Union

Lincoln University organiser Jo

McLean said the recruitment

cost was “not ideal”, but she did

not know what the market rate

was.

“One would have hoped

they would have done it in a

financially-prudent way taking

into account the financial situation.”

Dr West resigned two years

short of his five-year contract

amid concerns he spent too

much on consultants. Lincoln

spent $146,971 on legal fees and

a “last day of duty” payment to

Dr West to end his time there.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Six-year battle to stop sex workers

• By Kurt Bayer

MATT BONIS thought his

family had escaped the worst

when the earthquakes hit. Their

St Albans home stood up well in

the violent shaking that wiped

out large swathes of the eastern

suburbs and felled much of the

nearby central business district.

But as the aftershocks

rumbled on, New Zealand’s

greatest modern natural disaster

brought with it an unexpected

consequence for father-of-two

Bonis and his neighbours. They

suddenly found their normal,

quiet suburban street turned into

the nation’s second biggest street

sex trade epicentre.

Prostitutes, and their pimps,

had for years plied their trade

on a seedy red light stretch of

Manchester St, south of Bealey

Ave inside the city’s old Four

Avenues boundary.

But when the quakes flattened

the CBD, and an army-patrolled

cordon kept the public away

from potentially-dangerous

buildings and falling masonry,

the sex workers migrated north

of Bealey Ave.

And for the last six years, they

haven’t really moved. For Mr

Bonis and many residents of

that Manchester St area around

the corner of Purchas St, life has

proved a living hell.

In their gardens and around

their properties, residents have

found needles and syringes,

human faeces, used condoms,

and litter. Vandalism to houses

and cars has been reported, as

well as thefts. One elderly couple

found a prostitute “servicing a

client” on their lawn at 3am, and

when they asked them to leave,

had their car vandalised.

Attempts to ask the prostitutes

to move on are often met with

threats and intimidation, locals

say.

Mr Bonis made a police

complaint last year after three

prostitutes allegedly threatened

to burn his house down at 3am

with his family inside.

The trade starts about 10pm

and often goes through to 6am

or 7am.

They yell price lists to their

clients, they yell all sorts to

each other. My son who is now

11 knows the price lists, he

knows what a transvestite is. It’s

everything you try and protect

your children from,” Mr Bonis

says.

Since 2011, Mr Bonis and

fellow residents have tried to

get help from police, the city

council, the Government and

the New Zealand Prostitutes

Collective to try to move the

sex workers away from the

residential zone.

Mr Bonis says he’s made more

than 300 calls over the last six

years to police over noise and

other complaints.

“It’s got to point where they

don’t respond at all now,” he says.

The residents have been

campaigning for a bylaw to

ban the sex workers from the

residential area. Some have

already given up, sold, and

moved on.

A camera was installed last

year on the corner of Manchester

and Purchas Sts in a joint

initiative by then city councillor

Ali Jones, security camera firm

ATF Vision and police to deter

clients of the sex workers and

document antisocial behaviour.

But residents say it’s failed to

curb the kerb crawlers, and more

often than not, there is a sex

worker on all four corners.

Former city councillor Aaron

Keown erected ‘No street

workers at all times’ signs in the

area in 2013, but council staff

took them down because they

were deemed illegal.

Central Christchurch

resident Andrew Huntley

launched a petition earlier this

year to get the city council to

ban prostitutes soliciting in

residential areas through the

introduction of a bylaw.

“Personally I am fed up being

offered a blow job for $20 when

HAD ENOUGH: Matt Bonis on

the corner of Manchester and

Purchas Sts near his home,

where residents are fed up

with sex workers and

anti-social behaviour.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

I’m walking my dog at 6am in

the morning,” Mr Huntley said.

“I’m fed up having to watch

where my dog walks in case

of needles. I’m fed up having

prostitutes leering at me in

my car to see if I’m a potential

punter just when I drive to and

from my home address, and I am

right over them exposing their

breasts, backsides and genitalia

in broad daylight on some

occasions when I have driven by

– I have to, I live here.

“I’m fed up having condoms

dropped on the verge outside

where I live, and am struggling

to get the image out of my mind

of the prostitute defecating in

full view, one morning when I

left for work.”

The residents were buoyed

earlier this year when police

indicated they would back the

city council in enforcing a bylaw

to regulate the street-based sex

work, especially in residential

areas.

HANG OUT: Prostitutes on the corner of Manchester St and Bealey Ave.

Fight to remove sex

workers near homes

•From page 12

However, a letter to residents from city

council chief executive Karleen Edwards

and Canterbury Metro Commander Superintendent

Lane Todd said a bylaw is no

longer supported by police.

Under the Local Government Act as it

now stands, a bylaw would be difficult to

enforce, instant fines could not be issued,

and arrests could not be made, the letter

states. Attempts to regulate prostitution in

Manukau have repeatedly failed.

The move was supported by Prostitute’s

Collective co-ordinator Catherine Healy

who said it was a “forward-thinking decision”.

Ms Healey said it was better to manage

sex workers with street lighting and cameras,

rather than new rules.

But the sudden u-turn has outraged Mr

Bonis, spokesman for his fellow residents.

“Our concerns are not around prostitution.

We don’t care, it’s part of every city.

We are simply tired and don’t want it happening

here anymore,” Mr Bonis says.

The PRA (Prostitution Reform Act

2003) is there and it’s an industry like

every other. But unlike every other

industry, which have responsibilities that

go with those rights, this industry has

absolutely no responsibilities at all, to the

point where police have actually said they

are going to cherry-pick bylaws they are

going to enforce, and they’re not going to

do this one.

“Sex workers in our community can go

where they like, when they like, and do

what they like, and I cannot see in a New

Zealand society where that is appropriate

as a matter of law. We wouldn’t let

panelbeaters or tradies be here, why is it

appropriate for them to be there? That’s

the conversation we’ve tried to have for

the last six years and just got nowhere.”

City councillor Deon Swiggs is also

frustrated by the latest developments,

which he described as being a “slap in the

face”.

“It’s disappointing that the police went

into this, working with the council and

the residents, saying they would support

both of us regulating the activity in this

residential area,” Cr Swiggs said.

“For [police] to tell us late in the piece

that they wouldn’t support it has been

very frustrating and leaves us with very

little option to deliver on the expectation

that the residents have. As a council, we

should be able to deliver on the wish of

residents who are facing issues of this

nature.”

Mr Bonis is now engaged with lawyers

and exploring possible legal avenues.

He fears that without regulation, the

situation will only worsen for residents

like him.

The next step is either to go to the High

Court or leave. They’re the two choices

that the council and the police have left

us,” he says.

“To me, the argument is black and

white: Should a commercial activity be

allowed in a residential area at night? And

the answer to that is no.”

Hospital

library gets

discharged

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE FUTURE of Christchurch

Hospital Volunteer Library is

unknown, with no confirmed

plans to reopen it.

The library used to be on the

hospital’s lower ground floor and

was run by volunteers.

But a review as part of the

hospital’s post-earthquake redevelopment

determined it was no

longer possible to accommodate

all services.

Hospital general manager Pauline

Clark said the average length

of a patient’s stay had fallen,

while day-long treatments had

increased.

As a result of higher demand

for blood services, the library

space will now accommodate

blood services within the hospital,

Ms Clark said. It is awaiting the

results of the Hospital Redevelopment

Partnership Group’s master

planning process to see whether a

library could be accommodated.

She said staff had been in regular

contact with library volunteers

throughout the redevelopment

process.

ONE OF the city’s most

iconic streets may have been

largely destroyed during the

earthquakes, but the history of

High St has been captured in a

new cafe.

Voom is a recent addition to

the High St development opposite

the ANZ Centre.

And in the corner of the small,

express cafe, a large screen flicks

through historic photos of the

area.

“What we’ve done is incorporate

the history of High St with

photos from the National Library

of New Zealand,” regional

manager Peter Ward said.

Mr Ward said there is a range

of amazing photos, but one of

the standout shots is a picture of

the building on fire from more

than 50 years ago.

While the cafe champions

the past, he said Voom is ready

to grow with the regenerating,

modern central city.

“We’ve got a whole range of

customers we’re catering to, as

workers, tourists and shoppers

all return to the CBD.”

He said standing in the cafe

and seeing the large number of

building projects going on is really

invigorating.

“It’s only the start,” Mr Ward

said.

Voom is also one of a few

places in the city to offer the

famous pies from the Fairlie

Bakehouse.

There’s a lot of excitement

around having Fairlie on board,”

he said.

New cafe invokes High St nostalgia

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.

with the innovative SHIFT

Programme and kickstart your

new career today.

From left: Isaac Burwell and Jonathan Manning discuss one of their industry projects with Shift

programme co-ordinator Claudia Ott.

ISAAC’S STORY:

With a Masters in Geology, Isaac Burwell had been working in the mining industry for over 10 years.

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.’

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

Cycleways pump up riding numbers

Biketober is under way

in Christchurch this

month. The Star will

be publishing articles

through the month

on events and other

things cycling

A PUSH is on to get more people

on their bikes and using the

19km of new separated cycleways

that now link suburban areas of

Christchurch to the city centre.

The new cycleways are part of

a network being built across the

city to make it easier and safer

for people to get places by bike.

“One of the main barriers to

people cycling is the perception

it is unsafe. By building a

network of new cycleways, most

of which are separated from the

roadway, we are creating a safe

environment for cyclists and

giving people real travel choices,’’

said city council transport

operations manager Aaron

Haymes.

It’s Biketober so why not give

cycling a go.

A guide detailing the

cycleways routes and providing

useful tips on how to use them

has been dropped into the

letterboxes of thousands of

homes located near the new

cycleways.

“With this new guide we are

hoping to encourage people to

give cycling a go – even if it is

only for one day a week,’’ Mr

Haymes said.

“With the weather starting

to warm up it is a good time

for people to test out the new

cycleways and see how they

could use them to get work or to

other places they need to go.’’

Cycle counters placed in

strategic locations along some

of the new cycleways show

that in the past year there has

been an increase in the number

of cycle trips being made in

Christchurch.

A counter located on the

shared path in North Hagley

Park, near the Armagh St bridge,

counted an average of 1128 cycle

trips per work day over the first

half of 2017, which is 24 per

cent higher than the 902 a day

counted in the second half of

2016. By 2021 it is expected 1674

cyclists will be using that path

each day.

A counter on the Colombo St

section of the Papanui Parallel

has recorded an average of 153

northbound cycle trips each

weekday – a 58 per cent jump

on the 2016 estimate of 97 a day.

This section of the cycleway is

predicted to carry 1249 cyclists

northbound every day by 2021.

Overall the counters show

2600 cyclists commute into the

central business district on an

average weekday. That equates

to about 5200 cycle movements

a day. That is six per cent higher

than was predicted by computer

modelling.

Results from the recent

Christchurch Residents Survey

also show attitudes towards

cycling are changing. Fifty-six

per cent of people now believe

Christchurch is a safe and

convenient city for cycling.

During the recent Life in

Christchurch transport survey

more than half the respondents

reported they had ridden a

bike in the past year and about

a quarter indicated they were

riding a bike at least once a week.

•To find out what’s on

and how you can get

involved in cycling go to

the Biketober(external

link) website.

FAST FACTS:

•Biketober is supported by

the city council and the NZ

Transport Agency.

•As well as the first

ever NZ Bike Expo and

the Asia-Pacific Cycle

Congress, more than 50

other activities are being

planned by community

groups and volunteers for

the general public. These

include social bike rides,

go-by-bike breakfasts, a

pedal-powered cinema,

bike maintenance/repair

workshops, a cargo bike

rally, and much more.

Throughout the month,

people can also use a

“Bike Passport” to visit

various participating

local businesses, collect

stamps, and then go in the

draw to win some great

prizes at the Expo.

Leeann Watson

Setting an example for

NEW DESK: After working at Canterbury Employers’

Chamber of Commerce for 20 years, Leeann Watson is

set to step up into the top role as chief executive next

month.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Leeann Watson is set to take over the reins at the Canterbury Employers’

Chamber of Commerce next month – the first female chief executive in the

organisation’s 158-year history. She spoke to Gabrielle Stuart

So tell me a bit about your

background?

I’ve actually been at the chamber

for 20 years, for the last seven as

general manager. I started as an

international trade adviser, and as

I identified opportunities along the

way I just put my hand up for them,

and worked my way around the

whole company. So you could say

I know the organisation inside out

and back to front.

What was your very first job?

My first job was working for an

exporting company in Dunedin,

hence the international trade work.

International trade, sounds

pretty glamorous – is it?

It certainly wasn’t glamorous. It

was a lot of paperwork, a lot of export

documentation looking ahead

at all the potential hurdles and

making sure everything is where

it needs to be, so your orders get to

their destination. But it was a really

exciting job, because the company

went from strength to strength and

brought other companies along the

way, so I ended up working across

New Zealand.

It’s becoming unusual these

days to work in the same company

for 20 years – what’s kept you

there so long?

I ask myself the same question

sometimes. But it’s a very unique

environment to work in, there is

never a dull moment here. We can

host some amazing people here:

Rod Drury from Xero, we had

Hillary Clinton over a few years

ago, and we’ve hosted the prime

minister, so you get to have some

amazing conversations.

But it’s also being able to really

see a difference when you’re helping

a local businesses. In my role as

general manager I haven’t had as

many of the day-to-day interactions

with businesses, but I do spend a

lot of time making connections for

people, introducing them to people

who can help them. That’s what

makes it satisfying, when you know

you’ve done good, and you’ve really

helped these people.

Other thing is that there is a very

empowering environment here.

My job has been what I’ve wanted

to make it, and if I want to make

something happen we don’t have to

write a whole lot of reports, I just

duck in and have a chat to Peter and

he says: ‘Yeah, let’s make it happen.’

You’ll be the first female chief

executive in the history of the

chamber. How significant is that

to you?

I’m really proud of that, but I’m

more proud of being the right person

for the role regardless of gender.

The numbers clearly show women

are under-represented in leadership,

so I do hope this will send a signal

to other women that if you work

hard and take the opportunities

you get, you can reach the top.

There are fundamental differences

in the way men and women

tend to operate in life and in business,

and as women I think we tend

to hold ourselves back. We won’t

apply for a position if we have only

80 per cent of the qualification.

So I’d like to see more women

encouraged to aspire to leadership

and governance positions. But I

think playing up the whole women

in business thing can work against

women, too – it’s not about making

it a women’s club, because then

you’re doing the very thing you’ve

been fighting against.

women to follow

What’s the most important

piece of advice you’d give

to someone starting out in

business?

The key thing is to seek out

opportunities. Don’t sit back and

wait to be asked to do something,

put your hand up when you see

something. It’s become a bit of

a cliché, but I still see it on a

regular basis. People don’t put

themselves forward, sometimes

because they aren’t self-confident,

really for lots of different reasons.

But don’t hold back. Believe in

yourself, and brings a lot of opportunities.

Tell me about what you keep

on your desk – is there anything

important you’ll be bringing to

the new office?

That’s funny because when we

moved into our new building

I was renowned for having the

messiest desk in the whole office,

and I have done for years. So

when we moved we changed to

a more open system, so I have a

desk, not an office, and I have to

keep it relatively structured.

So I don’t have much on my

desk now, and to be honest I don’t

spend a huge amount of time

at my desk – it’s one of the best

things about the job. But I do have

a photo of my children, because

it’s nice to glance over at them.

What was your childhood

ambition, and what would your

child-self think of what you do

now?

I certainly wouldn’t have

thought I would be doing what

I’m doing! I can’t actually remember

really thinking I wanted

to do anything specific as a

young kid. In the last year of high

school I thought I was going to be

either a kindergarten teacher or

a chef – and I suppose I do now

have three kids, two sons and a

daughter, and I cook every night.

But my daughter is in the last

year of high school right now and

doesn’t really know what

she wants to do, so I’ve been having

this conversation with her a

lot.

What has your advice to her

been?

Well, in this day and age with

the way jobs are changing, half

the jobs of the future we haven’t

even invented yet. So the first

thing is it’s okay not to know. Unfortunately

the first question she’s

asked by everyone is what do you

want to be, what do you want to

do. But I’ve told her to go out and

try different things, and put yourself

in a position where you’re not

limiting your choices, and where

you are continuing to learn.

You looked pretty deep in

conversation with Catherine,

Her Royal Highness the Duchess

of Cambridge, when she visited.

When you were hosting her and

Hillary Clinton, what did you

talk about?

Just life. A few years ago Peter

was overseas so I had to host the

prime minister at the head table

at a dinner. A few of my friends

and colleagues said you must be

so nervous what are you going to

talk about? But at the dinner we

chatted so much, someone said to

me afterward I couldn’t get a word

in. Of course, I use those opportunities

to talk about Christchurch

and what’s happening here and

what’s needed, but usually people

don’t want to spend an hour talking

about the heavy stuff, they just

want to talk about life stuff. So I

just try to be me.

CONVERSATION: Leeaan Watson and Peter Townsend hosted

Prince William and Catherine, Her Royal Highness the Duchess

of Cambridge, during their visit to Christchurch in 2014, and said

they just wanted to talk “about life stuff.”

Help in store for ADHD kids

• By Jamie Morton

A VITAMIN-mineral

treatment could help kids with

attention-deficit/hyperactivity

disorder, Canterbury-led

research suggests.

ADHD is estimated to affect

two to five per cent of all

children, with boys three times

more likely to be diagnosed with

it.

In spite of decades of research,

its exact cause remains unknown.

A team led by Canterbury

University clinical psychologist

Professor Julia Rucklidge has

been carrying out a large, placebo-controlled

trial to investigate

what effects micronutrients have

on the regulation of aggression

and emotion in children with

ADHD.

The programme involved the

first fully blinded, randomised,

controlled trial of medicationfree

children with ADHD, who

were assigned to either micronutrients

or a placebo for 10 weeks.

That approach had previously

been limited to open-label studies,

which had shown promise.

In a new study, clinicians,

parents and teachers reported

how those children on

micronutrients showed greater

improvements in emotional

regulation, aggression and

general functioning compared

with those on the placebo.

“While the children still displayed

some hyperactivity and

impulsivity on micronutrients,

they were less anxious, slept

better, their appetites were not

suppressed, and their attention

improved,” Ms Rucklidge said.

Irritable, angry and moody

children could be “extremely difficult”

for parents, and the paper

had shown nutrients could lower

the intensity and frequency of

those problems.

“It’s an intervention that addresses

debilitating symptoms in

children that often lead to poor

long-term outcomes for them.”

While pharmacological treatments

could reduce ADHD

symptoms, these could come

with side effects, or often weren’t

continued.

The study team – which

included researchers from Otago

University, the Canterbury

District Health Board and the

US-based Oregon Health and

Science University – have just

published their findings in the

Journal of Child Psychology and

Psychiatry.

Shuttle trial extended

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A TRIAL aiming to solve

Christchurch Hospital staff

parking problems has been

extended, after the number of

people using it more than tripled.

Free park and ride shuttles for

staff have been trialled over the

past 12 weeks, running between

a Deans Ave car park and the

hospital. A similar public park

and ride service is run for patients

and visitors to the hospital.

Staff parking problems came

to a head in April, after several

hospital staff reported they were

assaulted while walking to their

cars at night.

This week, the Canterbury District

Health Board announced

it would be extending the staff

trial, and testing a new timetable.

• By Bridget Rutherford

MORE Christchurch motorists

are considering switching to

electric vehicles, with 1342 more

people putting them on their

Trade Me watchlists in the last

year.

The latest Trade Me Motors

data shows in August 2016, there

were 548 electric vehicles on

watchlists in Christchurch. In

CDHB support services

manager Rachel Cadle said the

number of staff using the service

had gradually increased.

At the beginning of the trial,

the shuttles were used just 172

times over a week.

By the end of September, that

had risen to 538 trips in a week.

“On this basis we have determined

that we should continue

to offer the service,” she said.

She said the new timetable

would be trialled for a “few more

weeks”.

NZ Nurses Organisation

organiser Christin Watson said

staff were becoming more aware

of the service, so the uptake was

growing. But he believed that

could change over summer, as

the days grew longer and Hagley

Park became busier.

Interest in electric vehicles grows

August, that increased to 1890.

That figure made up 12 per

cent of the country’s total electric

vehicles on watchlists.

Head of Trade Me Motors Alan

Clark said electric vehicles were

becoming “an attractive alternative”

for buyers, partly because of

better access to charging stations.

He said the average price of an

electric vehicle on Trade Me was

$23,300.

Gateway to Antarctica

Lianne Dalziel

AS A child, I knew about

Antarctica. The planes would

fly into the airport at this time

of the year on their way to the

ice. American accents could

be heard in the city and they

weren’t tourists – they were in

uniform and they were going

to this place that had a sense of

fascination for me.

It’s that time again, with the

Antarctic season opening this

weekend. As mayor of only one

of five international gateway

cities in the world, I have an important

role on behalf of the city

to welcome all of our Antarctic

programmes.

And this year, I have a very

special role. A statue of Robert

Falcon Scott in the heart of the

city commemorates the great

explorer who left the port of Lyttelton

to sail to Antarctica on

his second mission in 1910 and

never returned. It was sculpted

by his widow, Lady Kathleen

Scott.

Unveiled on February 9, 1917,

on the corner of Worcester St

and Oxford Tce, the 2500kg,

Robert Falcon Scott

2.6m-high statue was badly

damaged in the February 22,

2011, earthquake. It toppled

from its plinth and the fall

snapped the statue at its most

vulnerable part, the ankles.

It has taken years of careful

investigation and expertise to

get him back on his feet. He will

be unveiled again tomorrow,

with Scott’s great-grandson and

great-great-grandchildren in

attendance. It is a wonderful

tribute to our heritage and modern

technology.

I think we should be encouraging

Christchurch residents

– especially our children, who

may not have realised the wonderful

opportunities in research,

could take them as modern day

explorers to places like Antarctica.

How much do you, your family

historic links to Antarctica and

the heroic age of exploration?

How much do you know

about why New Zealand has an

Antarctic programme in the

Ross Sea and what role Antarctic

science will play in terms of understanding

the challenges of sea

Thousands of people attend

open days at the airport to

explore the planes that fly to

the ice and chat to the crews

about what it’s like to live on

the world’s coldest continent.

Maybe a young child could be

inspired to think of a career that

whats-on

A call has gone out for

ideas on what to do with

1000 letterboxes recovered

from red zone properties

as they were being

demolished

Jenny Blacklock – Make

an ‘exhibition’ of them . . . Stand

them all in Hagley Park in a huge

group and take photos for the

history books . . . I would absolutely

love to take a pic myself.

Maree Ram – Donate them

to kindergartens. I’m a teacher

and the children would put them

to very good use. They’re excellent

for encouraging literacy.

Kim Davison – I am in need

of a new letterbox and find them

quite pricey to buy new. Actually

No 28 or 34a would be of choice

for my place. I would be happy

to give a small donation towards

something that maybe happening

in the red zone or surrounding

area?

Yvette Searle – Sell the

ones in good condition as new

ones are expensive and any that

have seen better days turn them

into bug hotels for the garden.

Google bug hotel and you will

see examples

Philippa Guptill – An

artwork to remember the lost

houses even for a short while

then recycle . A great talking

point.

Paul Mac – Wonder who

you contact cause I’d love my old

letter box back from when I lived

there

Karen Hunter – Offer them

to people who know that they

were taken off their properties.

Many have mortgages and no

houses anymore.

•From page 24

The Streets for People

event on Sunday attracted

hundreds of people in an

attempt by the city council

to bring life back into the

central city

Lynn Mortlock – Great idea,

need to inject some life into the

Square on a very regular basis.

Went through town on Saturday

and was stoked to see how

busy it was, there were people

everywhere and for the first time

experienced such a rush of pride

. . . we’re healing.

Angela Woodward – If the

city council really wants people

back in the city centre, especially

on the weekends, then they need

to give free on-street car parking,

for say four hours. Current meter

rates are ridiculous for weekend

parking.

Sheree Hayward – Awesome

event. Great to see the city

buzzing with people having a

great time and discovering the

new city. It should be a regular

thing. The variety of food trucks

was fantastic. Do it again please.

Jill Sanders – Where would

we park? Too expensive in car

park buildings and not enough

parking on the street . . . Get

rid of those large encroaching

cycle lanes so the 90 per cent will

come back into the city. Buses

are great if you only need to go

to one area and have unlimited

time. The city council has made

an expensive mistake for ratepayers

and businesses are paying

the price.

Hospital staff have been

warned for using their work

phones to play music and

browse social media

Brent Hutchison – Why is

this news? Why do the management

care? They’re overworked

enough, get real leave them alone

and find more funding. The data

is in a big pool of data they all

share. So what if they watch Youtube

on the bus to work.

Hamish Middleton – As

long as they’re not searching on

YouTube ‘how to do open heart

surgery’ I’m fine with it.

Hamish Middleton – I have

it on good authority the top

searches listed in the article are

incorrect. The top were:

1) How to stretch funds when

you’re underfunded.

2) What are the best quality

tools from Mitre 10 (that could

be used in surgery)?

3) Healthcare pay rates in

Australia.

4) How to survive in poverty?

5 ) Who will Labour’s health

minister be?

Alena Joss-Pattinson –

Thank you to the anesthetist a

few weeks ago, he used his phone

for YouTube so my son could

watch it.

Sarah Winters – I often

play videos of cartoons and

Disney on my phone to kids as

a distraction, I use music and

old movies to try to calm people

with dementia, I search medication

names and rare disorders

on my phone. It is a resource like

anything else

Kat Smith – The staff at the

hospital have hard jobs and do

amazing work. If they want to

listen to some Spotify while

they care for patients, then

more power to them. As long as

patient care is the No 1 priority,

then who cares?

Oliver Neal – Honestly when

will employers wake up. Nonwork

related usage is going to

happen, regardless of how many

barriers are put in place. If you

move to a “use it in moderation

and don’t abuse it” system, then

employers can save on resources

spent monitoring it and actually

promote an environment that

staff want to work in - which will

make them more productive, not

less.

Ryan Franicevic – This illustrates

a problem with the cost

of mobile data in NZ rather than

abuse of the system. 300mb a

month is a ridiculous limit. I use

10 times that being frugal – definitely

no YouTube or Facebook

video.

Keri Herd – They are all paying

half their wage on parking

just trying to offset the cost.

Roddy Frost – Giving staff

a work phone and then dictating

how they are allowed to use

it is ridiculous. I guarantee all

the staff have a personal phone

anyway, so there is no need to

provide them with a phone but

instead provide them with a mobile

plan with unlimited data/txt.

The Big Read

Taking the war to the Head Hunters

Auckland-based gang the Head Hunters

have established a fearsome reputation in the

Christchurch criminal scene. Reporter Jared

Savage investigates the organisation and its

long reach

FREEZING $6 million of

property from Head Hunters’

boss Wayne Doyle is seen as the

pinnacle of a sustained police

war on the motorcycle gang.

No criminal charges have been

laid against Doyle, 62, who has

kept out of courtrooms for nearly

20 years.

Now the police will allege his

wealth was “criminally derived”

and Doyle, the president of the

East Chapter (in Auckland), will

need to prove he paid for the

property legitimately.

However, the raid on the

gang’s Ellerslie headquarters

recently should not be viewed in

isolation.

Over the past three years, the

Head Hunters have been specifically

targeted in at least 12 police

investigations across the country.

Guns, drugs, cars, cash – even

stolen Star Wars figures – have

been seized in Northland,

Auckland, Tauranga, Rotorua,

Wairarapa, Wellington, Nelson

and as far south as Christchurch.

This has been a deliberate

nationwide strategy to tackle

the gang, which has aggressively

expanded in numbers and geographic

locations in recent years.

The gang were seen as controlling

the methamphetamine

market and getting stronger.

Their numbers went ‘woosh’,”

said Chris Cahill, the president

of the Police Association.

There has definitely been,

without doubt, a concerted,

targeted attack on the Head

Hunters.”

The first of these was Operation

Genoa in May 2014.

A senior member of the

East Chapter, David Gerrard

O’Carroll, was arrested after a

covert investigation into methamphetamine

manufacturing.

Millions of dollars of assets

were seized, including $2 million

cash, luxury cars including a

TOP DOG: Police will allege Head Hunter president Wayne Doyle’s wealth was “criminally

derived”.

Ferrari, Porsche and Maserati, as

well as gold and silver bars.

Detectives also found a

machine to forge driver licences

and dozens of fake IDs.

The aliases were used to rent

storage facilities to hide the cash

and cars, set up bank accounts

and safety deposit boxes, obtain

a false passport and purchase

property.

“So when the police come

along, they’re hoping that we

don’t find out about the false

identity and take the assets,”

Detective Inspector Bruce

Good told the NZ Herald in

2014.

Fire rages, homes at risk

in a bid to stop their long reach

“It’s one way of trying to get

around the asset forfeiture laws.’’

In spite of the leading gang

convictions for

methamphetamine

manufacture

– O’Carroll was

released on bail to a

different address.

Six months

later, police found

another $1 million

cash at the second

address.

There was $900,000 hidden

in a bed frame, the balance in

a wardrobe. Detectives also

returned to the other property

where he was first arrested.

There, a cache of 14 stolen firearms

and thousands of rounds

of ammunition were discovered

in a secret bunker under the

kitchen.

“I must have walked over it 20

times before we found it,” Detective

Sergeant John Sowter said

last year.

“It was hidden under a tile in

the floor. The grouting must have

been replaced every time they

went in there.”

PATCHED: The Head Hunters Christchurch headquarters in

Vickerys Rd, Wigram.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

A dozen of the weapons,

mainly shotguns, were traced

to a burglary of a gun collector

in the fashionable Auckland

suburb of Bucklands Beach a few

months earlier.

O’Carroll is now serving 16

years and five months in prison

after being found guilty of cooking

about 2kg of the Class-A

drug.

The jury was unaware the

man in the dock was one of the

most senior members of the East

Chapter of the Head Hunters.

“It seems ironic that O’Carroll

is proud as punch to don his

patch, flash his tattoos and ride

his Harley around town with all

his other criminal mates,” said

Detective Sergeant Sowter.

“But when it comes to court he

cowers away from his involvement

with the gang.”

SINISTER: A cache of 14

stolen firearms and thousands

of rounds of ammunition were

discovered in a secret bunker.

Following Genoa was Operation

Easter.

Police were told members of

the Head Hunters’ East Chapter

in Auckland were running a P

lab in Northland.

Investigating the tip in Waiotira,

in rural Northland, without

tipping off the targets, posed its

own unique challenges.

“It’s a small rural community,

everybody knows everybody,”

said Detective Senior Sergeant

Lloyd Schmid earlier this year.

“We needed to be careful how

we moved in that community,

who we might ask for assistance

and the ongoing maintenance

issue looking after our equipment.”

By equipment, Schmid means

two covert motion-activated

cameras which captured who

was coming and going.

Nearly every day, over the

course of the five-month inquiry,

Schmid said there was a strict

routine.

The P cooks would arrive

around 7am and work until

lunchtime, have a short break,

then keep working until around

6pm.

“In terms of how they went

about their business, I could

only describe that as very regimented,”

said Detective Senior

Sergeant Schmid.

“In my career, I would say this

is one of the most professionally

run clan labs I have seen.”

The entire house was stripped

bare to house the chemicals and

lab equipment needed to cook

massive amounts of the Class-A

drug. •Turn to page 30

Inside the police war on the Head Hunters

•From page 29

The word “factory” was used

deliberately by Justice Simon

Moore when sentencing the

ringleader, patched Head Hunter

Brownie Harding, in April.

“Its sole purpose was to

provide a clandestine environment

to accommodate your

sophisticated and well-equipped

laboratory to manufacture massive

quantities of methamphetamine.”

He was sentenced to 28 and

a half years in prison and will

serve at least 10 years before being

eligible for parole.

While Harding was the undisputed

“boss” of the Northland

operation, said Justice Moore,

there was evidence he answered

to someone higher up the chain

in Auckland.

In one unforgettable conversation

bugged by police, Harding

was “incandescent with rage” after

some of the drugs leaked out

of the manufacturing apparatus

and was lost.

He talked about having to

explain a $200,000 loss “down in

Auckland”.

In May, Detective Senior

Sergeant Schmid said manufacturing

methamphetamine was a

money-making business and the

Head Hunters were at the forefront

of the lucrative enterprise.

He had “no doubt” Harding

was answering to more senior

members of the gang, who were

able to pull strings and “reap the

rewards”.

There are a few key players

behind the scenes. The Head

Hunters have expanded and have

a significant number of members

now, able to task to run clan labs

like this,” said Detective Senior

Sergeant Schmid.

“And they work just as hard,

if not harder, in their criminal

endeavours as you or I do in

regular employment. The shame

of it is if they applied themselves

in regular employment, I’m sure

they’d be successful.”

In a late twist in Operation

Easter, police were listening in

when Harding rang the gang

pad in Ellerslie wanting to speak

with “Bird”.

“Bird” is William Hines, one

of the most senior Head Hunters

in the East Chapter.

The 64-year-old Hines was

jailed this year for 18 and a half

years for manufacturing P after

LOCKED UP: Brownie Harding

was sentenced to 28 and a

half years in prison and will

serve at least 10 years before

being eligible for parole.

a third, separate investigation,

Operation Sylvester.

“Bird” has a long and colourful

criminal history, including

a stint in prison for the Head

Hunters’ first foray into cooking

P back in the late 1990s.

But he kept out of trouble until

the start of 2015, when the police

started a covert investigation targeting

Hines and his underlings.

Hines was in charge of the

methamphetamine ring, giving

orders but leaving the others to

do his “dirty work” in order to

keep his hands clean.

Other Head Hunters and associates

arranged the equipment

and ingredients needed for the

actual manufacture of the Class

A drug.

On just one “cook”, the

group obtained 20 “sets” of

pseudoephedrine – enough to

produce more than 1kg of methamphetamine.

At one point during the covert

surveillance, police raided a storage

unit linked to the group.

They found a van, with an internal

cage and heavy-duty locks.

Inside detectives found 9kg of

iodine and 33L of hypophosphorous

acid – used in the cooking

process – as well as 150g of P

separated into ounces.

These are commonly sold for

$12,000 each.

Alongside the drugs was a

cache of high-powered militarystyle

rifles and a Smith & Wesson

revolver.

“Sinister” was how the sentencing

judge described the

discovery.

Three separate investigations,

three senior members of the East

Chapter of the Head Hunters

serving long jail sentences.

These operations show the

Head Hunters are at the very

heart of methamphetamine

manufacture in this country,”

said Detective Superintendent

Greg Williams, the head of

the National Organised Crime

Group.

“We did target them – and

will continue to target them and

other gangs – in order to stop

them from harming the community.

And we make no apologies

for that.”

BUILD 7

A ‘real show home’ open to the public

Every Sunday in October (12pm-3pm)

the public will have the opportunity to

visit a show home with a difference in

Lincoln. Unlike the usual show homes

people visit when they are in the market

to build a new home, this is a real home

on show, where builder Jamie Cowan

lives with his wife Francesca and their

young son.

“We wanted to show people the Build7

process first-hand, with a home that we

are proud to live in ourselves,” Francesca

says.

Jamie and Francesca are the

Canterbury owners of Build7, a home

building company different from most

other building companies operating in

the New Zealand market.

As Francesca explains: “We don’t

have set plans that clients choose from.

Instead, we sit down with every client

and take the design brief from them,

and that includes their seven ‘musthaves’.

They can also bring in photos of

interiors and styles they like and we can

work from those.

“We find it a lot easier to design a

house from scratch. Everyone has a

different idea for their house, and with

our method they get exactly what they

want. From the briefing we develop a

concept pack, which includes renders,

a floor plan and elevations, and this is a

free service.”

Top-quality construction of the client’s

home is ensured with Jamie’s 18 years’

building experience – he completed

his apprenticeship and early years in

Canterbury before spending significant

time in Sydney fine-tuning his craft. As

the project manager on every build, he is

in contact with the client right through

the process.

Build7 designs and builds homes for

all budgets, Francesca says.

“We work within the client’s budget,

which can range from a Kiwisaver first

home build, right through to highend

properties, where we work with

architects if required.”

The company has a range of suppliers,

coupled with strong trade relationships

that come with being a national building

company, giving clients an extensive

selection of materials and fittings to

choose from, while the services of an

interior designer are included in the

package.

Jamie and Francesca’s home is part of

Tomorrow’s Show Homes, a programme

presenting show homes around New

Zealand that are more innovative than

standard homes.

A four-bedroom home, it was

designed it for maximum light, with

a contemporary décor and a good

connection between indoors and

outdoors.

Located at 45 Sunline Avenue in the

Flemington subdivision in Lincoln, it is

open for viewing from 12pm-3pm every

Sunday in October.

Gardening

Wild about creeping thyme

• By Henri Ham

THERE are many, many different

varieties of thyme out there

in the herb world. But the one

thyme that I’m particularly fond

of is wild creeping thyme.

It is mildly scented, attracts

bees (very important) and can

be used in cooking like regular

thyme. But for me, what makes

it just a step above some other

thyme varieties is that it can

be used as ground cover and is

extremely resilient.

Here’s an interesting fact – it’s

also said to be deer resistant. This

not really something I’ve had a

problem with in my garden at the

nursery. But I can tell you it can

withstand a good stomping from

anything else – kids, dogs called

Alvin, nursery chooks and more.

This is why it makes a great

ground cover or lawn.

Furthermore, unlike other

herbs, it doesn’t die back in winter

and keeps on giving you bang

for your buck. This is why it’s

classified as a hardy (can withstand

the cold weather), evergreen

(keeps its leaves) perennial

(a plant that survives for three or

more years).

Simply plant your wild creeping

thyme plants around 20-

30cm apart from each other.

You can harvest your thyme

straight away but it’s best to give

it some time to get established.

The longer you leave it, the more

leaves you’ll have to harvest later

on. Then in spring and after

flowering, give it a prune to help

maintain its compact appearance.

And before long you’ll be wild

about creeping thyme like I am.

SCENTED: Wild thyme is

extremely resilient.

TALL: Artichokes need plenty of room to grow.

Growing your own veges

• By Rachel Vogan

HOW GOOD do you feel when

you eat fresh, healthy food? I

love it, and while no one ever

queries the health benefits, a lot

of people forget to mention how

mentally satisfying it is to grow

your own food.

This month and next are the

two busiest months in terms of

planting and sowing vegetables,

herbs and edible flowers. The

main defining factor on what

you can plant outdoors is your

climate, so be very mindful of

this when busying yourself in the

garden.

In most areas, frosts and cold

snaps will still be present, so hold

off on planting the young plants

of tender crops such as tomatoes,

chillies, eggplant, cucumber,

beans, capsicum, pumpkin,

courgette and basil. Seeds of all

these can be sown under cover

now, ready for planting out next

month.

What to plant this month

CARROTS

Go mad planting carrots this

month and continue at intervals

over the next couple of months,

bearing in mind that they do not

transplant well. As for the soil, it

needs to be loose and friable, so

if yours is pale and sandy, blend

in compost or incorporate some

vegetable mix.

While it sounds old-fashioned,

using a strong line and some

markers to identify where the

rows of seed are to be sown really

does help. Firstly, it reminds you

that seeds are in the ground,

which prevents you from

planting any seedlings amongst

your rows before the existing

ones sprout, and secondly, it

allows you to create a path you

can walk down to thin, weed and

harvest your carrots throughout

the season.

Carrots will grow well in large,

deep pots too. Fill these with

vegetable mix and sow seed

by making a shallow trench –

1-2cm deep – and sprinkling

seed evenly along the rows,

carefully covering with soil and

water. Seedlings will appear in

a few weeks. To speed up the

germination, you could cover

with a portable plastic tunnel or

fleece house.

BEETROOT

The choice is yours as to

whether you buy ready-grown

seedlings or sow seed, but

either way, prepare the soil as

you would for carrots. With

seedlings, allow 10cm between

each plant, but when sowing

seeds, drop a couple in a few

finger spaces apart along the

row. Bear in mind when growing

that beetroot is one of the few

root crops that will cope with

transplanting. Globe varieties

are tennis ball-shaped and take

up a bit more space than the

narrow, cylindrical ones, so give

the round varieties a bit more

room.

Beetroot enjoys fertile soil,

so enrich the soil with good

compost or vegetable fertiliser

prior to planting.

Not much gets wasted when

growing beetroot; the roots can

be harvested immaturely as ‘baby

beets’, and the leaves can be used

in salads and slaws.

Another good crop for tubs

and containers, too.

ARTICHOKES

Both globe and Jerusalem

types can be planted now. The

giant thistle-looking globe

artichoke needs plenty of room

to grow, as it is a long-term crop

and, once established, it will

produce chokes reliably for over

a decade or more.

is most satisfying

It is one crop that will cope

with dry periods; however, the

better the soil and the more

water they get, the larger the

harvest.

Jerusalem artichokes are a root

crop that often can’t be found in

the garden centres, so look for

them at farmers’ markets or in

the organic shops. The knobbly

looking bits of root will quickly

shoot once planted. The stems

are tall – well over head height

– so plant them near the back of

the vegetable patch. A plant can

reach 1.5-2m.

SPINACH

This supercharged green has

to be one of the easiest crops

to grow; either sow seeds or, to

speed up the process by a month,

plant out healthy seedlings now.

To get the best out of the crop,

plant it in an area that receives

full sun, and ensure it has rich,

fertile soil by blending in plenty

of compost, sheep pellets, and

possibly vegetable food prior

to planting. The compost and

manure will lock much-needed

moisture into the soil.

PARSNIP

Parsnip is my ultimate winter

vegetable. This is one crop you

have to grow from seed, as you

will not find it in punnets or

seedling bundles. Always buy

new seed each year, as the seed

doesn’t stay viable for long once

the packet is opened.

The soil needs to be prepared

in the same way you would for

carrots. Make a shallow groove

in your prepared row and

sprinkle a seed or two every few

centimetres, taking care not to

sow too thickly. Lightly cover the

row with soil, then water in with

boiling water to help stimulate

germination. Seedlings pop up in

three to four weeks.

ONIONS

Red, white, brown and pickling

onions can all go in now, and,

from my experience, starting

with seedlings will give you a

longer growing season.

Much like the other crops, they

also need loose, friable soil in

order to thrive. Seed germinates

readily, but is not overly fast.

Allow a hand space between

each plant, except for pickling

onions, which need only 5cm.

As the young, hair-like seedlings

are fragile, try not to plant them

out in the middle of a hot day, as

they can easily wilt – later in the

afternoon is ideal.

As they do not take up much

space, a popular way to grow

them in is a grid pattern, which

you can achieve simply by

making a series of holes in the

soil in said pattern and dropping

a seedling in each one. Then,

rather than firming them in

with your finger, use a watering

can and water them in, which

will secure the soil around the

seedling without damaging its

delicate stem.

LETTUCE

Arm yourself with loads of

lettuce seedlings this month,

and poke them in anywhere you

have a gap in the garden – their

shallow root system means

they can, and will, grow almost

anywhere.

In the vege patch, allow

two hand spaces, or 15-20cm,

between plants. They thrive in

rich, moisture-retentive soils, so

mix in the usual additions like

compost, peat or manure before

planting. Definitely put nets

over young plants at this time

of year, as birds are still looking

for anything fresh, sweet and

juicy, and be vigilant with slug

and snail bait too, as soft lettuce

leaves are a favourite with

them.

EASY: Harvest carrots throughout the season.

HARDY: Beetroot can be transplanted while it is growing.

Treasure Trawling

Antiques, curios and collectibles are

a great place to begin when looking

for ways to put your unique stamp on

your home.

While minimalist interiors can run

the risk of looking too polished and

devoid of personality, cluttering up

your home with an abundance of

ornate antique pieces can feel like

you’re living in a museum.

Although achieving just the right

balance of the past and the present

through a careful selection of

furniture, art, antiques, lighting, textiles,

and collectible takes some skill and a

bit of experimentation,

it is a lot of fun.

Weekends spent scouring flea

markets, antique shops and vintage

emporiums provides the ideal

breeding ground to stimulate the

creative juices by envisioning how

different pieces can be used and

repurposed to make a house

a home.

I personally love giving a new lease

of life to objects that have begun

life for one intended purpose and

transforming them into something

else.

Vintage fabric is a great way to

instantly rejuvenate interiors. If you’re

handy with the sewing machine whip

up a couple of cushion covers in

complementary colourways for the

living room or frame a gorgeous piece

of fabric for a unique work of art to

brighten up your walls.

As an avid collector of all things weird

and wonderful on my travels and

many hours of treasure trawling, be

prepared unleash your imagination

and be warned - this pastime can be

seriously addictive!

Theatre/Arts

Director brings racy play to stage

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

Lara

Macgregor

CALLING THE shots on an

edgy new show delving into

themes of sexual dominance

and submissiveness has been

described as a “new world to

dive into” by director Lara

Macgregor.

She is in charge of The Court

Theatre’s Venus In Fur, a racy

play raising questions about what

is real and what is not, who is in

control and who

dominates.

Sound

familiar?

While it is

difficult not to

draw comparisons

to erotic

romance novel

Fifty Shades of

Grey, Macgregor

characterises the show as intellectual

rather than having a

“down and dirty” approach.

There is a lot of comedy, a

lot of mystery and there is a lot

of psychological game-playing,

which really pushes the audience,”

she said.

Macgregor, who is based in

Hoon Hay, said the show looks

deeply into the complexities of

communication between a male

and female.

SPARKS FLY: Daniel Watterson as Thomas and Jessie

Lawrence as Vanda in The Court Theatre’s new production of

Venus In Fur.

A play within a play, the show

begins with New York theatre

playwright Thomas auditioning

women to play the principal role

in his adaption of the erotic 1870

novel Venus in Furs.

The novel by Austrian author

Leopold von Sacher-Masoch

happens to have inspired the

term ‘masochism’ in real life.

During the auditions, a

mysterious character, Vanda, appears

in the story and convinces

Thomas to read with her. When

they both become caught up in

their characters, fantasy and

reality is blurred.

Macgregor said audiences here

often do not see a lot of plays

which are sexual in nature and it

was a change to be dealing with

sexuality. “In the 1960s, you used

to go to theatre where there was

a lot of naked people and that

was just a reflection on society at

that time. We are just not really

in that trend of theatre really,”

she said.

A freelance director involved

with The Court Theatre since

2008, Macgregor, who is originally

from Wellington, has been

based in the city for more than

six months.

It has been an exciting year for

Macgregor, who said she directed

one of her most challenging

shows The Curious Incident of

the Dog in the Night-Time at The

Court Theatre earlier this year.

She said like Venus In Fur, it

covered complex subject matters

such as domestic violence,

divorce and people who don’t

care about others in difficult conditions.

“You are dealing with

nature and the human condition

every day . . . you are a psychologist,”

she said.

But Macgregor said in spite

of often dealing with difficult

subject matter, she loves telling

stories for a job.

Court Theatre from October

21 to November 11. To

Diverse nature of Australia’s Outback

• By Mike Yardley

IT’S MAJESTIC, unforgettable,

awe-inspiring and formidably

remote.

Book-ended by Broome and

Kununurra, the Kimberley region

is one of the most sparsely populated

regions in the world, home

to just 25,000 residents, most of

whom are Aboriginal.

Over the course of eleven days,

my guided holiday with AAT

Kings clocked up over 3000km,

traversing the Kimberley from

Broome to Darwin, on remote

highways and dusty tracks.

The unfolding landscape is

surprisingly diverse and everchanging,

where arid tracts of flat

baked-earth and its red pindan

soil yield to verdant savannah

woodland and tropical grassland;

there’s oasis-like wetlands, aflutter

with stunning birdlife, sprawling

cattle stations, and towering

sandstone ranges sliced and diced

by gorges, where rivers rage in the

wet season, flooding everything

in its path.

Loosely sectioned into two subregions,

West Kimberley unfurls

its manifold glories on an eastward

track from Broome to Halls

Creek. After a rustic morning tea

break at the Willare Roadhouse,

where the rusty-red sandy soil

HIGHLIGHT: The blazing grandeur of Geike Gorge, at sundown and in daylight.

fanned across the forecourt, and

82-tyred, 50m road trains pulled

in to refuel, we soaked up the eyepopping

sights of Derby.

Pinned to the edge of the

Northwest Continental Shelf, at

the base of King Sound, Derby

has one the world’s highest tidal

ranges, where water levels rise

and fall by a colossal 11.5m.

We ogled this marvel of nature

at the Derby jetty, a sweeping

circular-shaped pier, constructed

on extremely high stilts. Kimberley’s

trademark tree, the boab, is

an infatuating, ever-present sight.

They can live for 1500 years,

making them Australia’s oldest

living being. Every tree seems to

assume its own quirky character

and their crazily-shaped twisting

branches spawn fat boab nuts, the

size of duck eggs.

Seven kilometres out of Derby,

we were transfixed by the boab

prison tree, a monumental, supersized

specimen, dated at over

1000-years-old.

With a circumference of over

14m, it was shockingly used as a

“prison cell” in the 1890s by police,

as they transported Aboriginals

from across the Kimberley to

the main jail in Derby.

Our AAT Kings travel director,

Delma, previously worked

as a nurse in the Kimberley and

provided some up-front, sobering

insights into the appalling plight

of the local Aboriginal people

today.

Their communities are

wracked by alcohol abuse,

domestic violence and a

severe diabetes epidemic –

“a people lost between two

cultures”, as Delma put it.

But tourism is manifestly

opening up more and more

job opportunities.

We visited a particularly

remote Aboriginal community

school, home to the

Yiyili people, a community

of 250 people scattered

across Louisa Downs who

now own and operate the

cattle station.

Alongside the school,

we admired the local

artworks in Laari Gallery,

a superb place to purchase

an uber-authentic piece

of indigenous art. My

runaway scenic highlight

in the West Kimberley was

encountering the blazing

grandeur of Geike Gorge,

at sundown.

The mighty Fitzroy River

has carved a deep gorge

into the remains of the

ancient limestone barrier

reef, which snakes across

the west Kimberley.

During the wet season,

the river rises over 16m,

permanently staining the

gorge’s vertiginous limestone

walls, white. A frisson

of delight regularly rippled

through our group, when

we spotted freshwater

crocodiles sunning themselves,

on the water’s edge.

The boat tours are expertly

guided by Bunuba

Aboriginal people, who

provided fascinating insights

into cultural richness

of the gorge. But, nothing

can compete with the blazing

theatrical splendour of

the lowering sun striking

those cliff walls, seemingly

setting them on fire – and

the water, through its

reflected glory. It’s a retina-

Pumping out savings for

New Zealand’s golden residents

Since the Challenge network of service

stations opened its doors – and pumps –

to the SuperGold Card, more and more

SuperGold Card users have found that

cheaper fuel and old-fashioned service has

been a recipe for success.

A regular to Christchurch’s Challenge

Halswell, SuperGold Card user Iain Lynn

says while the discount that the SuperGold

Card provides is a bonus, it is Challenge’s

service and people that keep him coming

back.

“I visit the Halswell service station all

the time, because the girls and guys on the

pumps give excellent service – I couldn’t

fault it,” he says.

The car knows its own way there, we

have been going there for almost 10 years

now.”

As a member of the Halswell Lions

Group, Iain is often out and about in the

community. Iain

and his wife also get

out a lot during the

week – they walk

their dog at Halswell

Quarry or Sumner

– and pop in to

Challenge regularly.

“I’ve got a great

rapport with

Graeme and the

Halswell, they’re

Those figures sit well

with Land-Rover’s combined

cycle average claim

of 7.5l/100km (37mpg).

Power is directed

through an eight-speed

automatic gearbox. It is a

stunner in terms of shift

quality, the changes are

seamless and there is fluid

interaction between the

engine and transmission.

The entire driveline is

refined, but beneath the

sophistication is rugged

engineering for life offroad.

There is a complex

mechanical structure, but

its application is sublime.

One of the Discovery’s

major engineering benefits

is that of its air suspension.

Not only does it link well

with the Terrain Response

system, it also provides

an uncompromised ride.

Rough road surfaces are

absorbed with little in-cabin

shock, it travels smoothly

providing the occupants

with high levels of comfort.

Body balance when presented

with a corner or two

is also controlled; there is

little lean in comparison

to its height, gravitational

forces are kept in check.

The air suspension system

also lends itself to

an adjustable ride height

system, all dictated by the

driver through a centre

console-mounted dial. The

Terrain Response operation

is also located in the same

area, all the driver has to

do is determine the type

of off-road surface ahead

and dial in the appropriate

setting.

On-road, too, the

Discovery is a delightful

vehicle in which to travel.

It whisks through the air

quietly and tackles a tricky

corner with confidence.

There’s a lot of vehicle, but

it steers with precision and

reasonable accuracy thanks

to huge Good Year tyres

(255/55 x 20in).

On board comfort is

seldom jeopardised. It is

a competent seven-seater

and has all the ingredients

in place which make it

functional and practical,

along with ease of use.

It’s fair to say the

Discovery includes a mammoth

amount of technology,

much of it is unseen

until safety elements come

into play, there are various

active driver assistance

systems which keep the

vehicle out of trouble in the

first instance.

I travelled almost 300km

in the evaluation car, each

journey was pleasurable

and there was never a time

when I thought its size

weighed against its concept.

While it doesn’t seem

logical that a vehicle with

so much bulk and sophistication

could be such a

worthy off-road machine, it

certainly is. It is more than

one vehicle, it lends itself

to many applications and

excels at all of them.

High calibre bowlers for tournament

YOUTH bowling’s cream of the

crop will hit the Burnside green

tomorrow.

The Burnside club’s under-26

singles tournament runs until

Sunday and features a string of

current and future international

calibre bowlers from New Zealand

and Australia.

The event reinforces the idea

that bowls is a game for all ages.

The playing group ranges in age

from 17 to 25.

At stake is $5000 in prize money,

but more importantly to these

youngsters is the opportunity to

display their talents and skills

in front of Bowls New Zealand’s

national lead coach and selector

Sharon Sims.

The feature of the Burnside

event is having men and women

play on equal terms.

Three previous winners – Sean

Ingham, Broadbeach, Australia,

2013; Tayla Bruce, Canterbury,

REDEMPTION: After losing her crown last year Tayla Bruce will

seek the title for the second time.

2015; and Sheldon Bagrie-

Howley, Southland, 2016 – will

attempt to repeat their past

success.

“Every year it just gets better

and better but the standard of

play is always matched by the

sportsmanship shown and the

way this group of players rekindle

old friendships and make

new ones,” said tournament

convener Kerrie Bruce.

YOUNG GUN: NZ development player Cait Bassett will look to

claim her first U26 title.

Thirteen players in the field

have already represented their

country at development team

level, mainly against Australia.

Bruce, of the Burnside

club, has been selected in the

Blackjacks women’s team for

the transtasman test series

in November, Burnside and

Allenton club member, Bassett,

will play in the development

team’s test series.

Burnside pulls out of UC Championship

School

blames lack

of depth

• By Gordon Findlater

THE STRENGTH of the South

Island’s elite schools rugby

competition has claimed a

victim.

Burnside High School have

pulled out of next year’s UC

Championship, saying they do

not have the depth to compete.

The move is surprising. In

2016, Burnside finished ahead

of traditional rugby schools St

Andrew’s and St Bede’s colleges

and won the South Island co-ed

schools title.

In 2014 and 2015, Burnside

won the UC Championship

Plate, which is played for between

teams that finish from

fifth to eighth in the roundrobin.

The school has also turned out

potential stars in recent times.

Last year’s Burnside hooker

Perry Karati was named in the

New Zealand Secondary School

Barbarians team. Burnside

captain Cam Russell was named

co-winner of the 2016 UC

Championship player of the year.

Both Karati and Russell were

part of the Canterbury under-19

team this year. However, that

may not have been the case had

they not been exposed to the elite

first XV competition.

“If I wasn’t playing in the

UC Championship, I probably

wouldn’t have got the recognition

that I did. I think kids may

look at changing school because

if you’re not in the top competition

then you’re not going to get

looked at,” said Karati.

The programme was definitely

in good shape when I was

there and I thought it would

continue to stay in good shape.”

But after just one poor campaign,

Burnside have pulled out

of the UC Championship.

They recorded just one win,

finishing dead last in the competition

and regularly had 30-40

points put on them. The lowest

point of their campaign was a

7-74 hiding at the hands of Nelson

College.

Burnside operate a successful

international rugby programme.

However, under the UC Championship

rules they can only field

two non-domestic players.

The programme has seen a

number of its students go on to

play international rugby.

Last year, one of the programme’s

students Mika

Ravalawa was scouted on his

performances in the UC Championship.

The Fijian back scored

14 tries for Burnside in 2016. He

was snapped up by NRL side the

Canberra Raiders and last month

was named Raiders’ national

youth competition player of the

year.

Next year the Burnside first

XV will compete in a Saturday

metro under-18 competition,

allowing them to field an unlimited

amount of international

players.

Canterbury Rugby Football

Union chief executive Nathan

Godfrey received an email from

Burnside assistant principal Matt

White last month to indicate the

school would be pulling out of

the championship.

Burnside sport co-ordinator

Tracy Taylor said “we just don’t

have the depth”.

“It’s not much fun getting

thrashed by 50 points each

week.” With a role of more than

2000, Burnside is the largest

school in New Zealand outside

of Auckland.

Meanwhile, the UC Championship

will move to a two-tier

competition from 2019. The top

tier will be decided by the finishing

order of the teams in 2018.

Godfrey says the ideal scenario

would be a 10-team top tier with

the bottom tier being available

for new teams to enter and attempt

to gain promotion.

It is understood a combined

West Coast schools team may

take Burnside’s place in next

year’s championship.

THE KIWIS World Cup hopes

have been dealt a huge blow with

Melbourne Storm premiership

winner Tohu Harris set to miss

the upcoming tournament

through injury. And in another

shock, veteran hooker Issac Luke

has been dumped after a poor

season for the Warriors.

The NZ Herald understands

Harris’ absence will be confirmed

when the Kiwis 24-man

squad is announced today, after

struggling to overcome shoulder

and foot injuries that dogged

him throughout the year.

The 25-year-old missed the

first two months of the season

with a broken foot and was later

sidelined with a rotator cuff

injury, before returning to play a

key part in the Storm’s charge to

the finals.

However, both injuries got

progressively worse and limited

Harris’ ability to train each week

before he limped into Sunday’s

34-6 grand final win over North

Queensland.

In his last appearance for

Melbourne, the Warriors-bound

forward turned in a typically

tireless performance at ANZ

Stadium and fired out a beautiful

25m pass for Josh Addo-Carr’s

second try in the 73rd-minute.

In spite of having given his all

on his way to winning his first

NRL title, Harris’ body is in no

condition to get through the sixweek

World Cup. He will now

focus on recovering in time for

his first season at the Warriors.

Meanwhile, Luke is believed

to have been overlooked, with

Kiwis selectors opting to go with

youth in the form of impressive

21-year-old Newcastle Knights

hooker Danny Levi.

Former Kiwis skipper Simon

Mannering will also be

among the names read out, after

selectors debated long and hard

over whether to stick with the

Local

News

Now

Harris ruled out of Kiwis World Cup side, Luke dumped

• By David Skipwith

Fire rages, homes at risk

31-year-old 42 test veteran.

Harris’ omission likely made

Mannering’s inclusion an easy

call and his experience will be

invaluable to the side alongside

new captain Adam Blair.

But the loss of Harris is significant.

The Kiwis are already down

on troops, with Jesse Bromwich

and Kevin Proctor banned from

selection due to their involvement

in the cocaine scandal

following the Anzac test loss to

Australia in Canberra in May.

Show Homes - the ultimate way to shop around

In Christchurch and the surrounding rural districts we are blessed

with an extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle featuring all the latest

in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a

way nothing else can. You can absorb

the ambiance they present, admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology all in one place, under

a roof that you may just select for your

new home.

At a show home you can ask

questions, take notes and compare them

to other builders’ presentations. You

don’t have to visualise or imagine full

scale from a photo in a glossy, you can

simply see at a glance, often instinctively,

features you like, things you would avoid

and clever innovation that you never

would have thought of.

Best of all you will see the building

companies’ attention to detail, from

design, construction and finish through

to interior decor, outdoor living and

landscaping.

Show homes are the perfect way to

get a good idea of pricing, discover what

is good quality and value, learn about

superior use of space, future-proofing,

ongoing maintenance and long term

returns. So what are you waiting for?

Check out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.

CONCERT REVIEW

Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox

Isaac eatre Royal, Christchurch. Sunday 1st October 2017

Music Directors: Adam Kubota & Logan Evan omas.

MC: LaVance Colley

Reviewed by Christine Hainstock

WHAT is there not to like about

Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern

Jukebox? Absolutely nothing!

With eleven performers all top

of their game, the full house was

truly treated with a full on two

hour non-stop show.

Von Smith set the scene with

“Call Me Maybe” 1920’s trad with

Sarah Reisch sporting red

sequins in her tap entree then

Sara Niemietz’ rendition of “I Will

Survive” certainly reinforced that

with fast swing into tango with

Nick Finter (trombone) and a

brilliant clarinet solo from Chloe

Feoranzo.

Hannah Gill was the newbie

and youngest member of PMJ

but it certainly didn’t show. In a

1940’s Big Band swing version of

“Somebody I Used to Know” her

voice could be likened to a good

strong cup of coffee.

Mother star ship of singers,

Maiya Sykes, a gospel voice from

heaven, paid homage to Sam

Smith with “I’m Not the Only

One” going from vintage New

Orleans into funk groove then

Dirty Dozen brass band and jazz

scat cadenza.

Drummer, Dave Tedeschi and

Sarah Reich, Tapper embarked on

percussion rivalry with Dave

crouching on the floor and Sarah,

not to be out-beaten, tapping one

foot on the floor and the other on

a tambourine “Evolution of Tap

Dance” covering everything from

Sweet Georgia Brown to Wave to

Superstition - her fabulous one

shouldered black and gold

striped sequined jumpsuit

befitting the occasion.

MC LaVance Colley

demonstrated he was much more

than an MC with his Rat Pack

style singing of Bruno Mars’

“at’s What I Like” moving into

double time swing. When

LaVance sang “Halo” he looked

simply angelic in a pewter lame

jacket and with a delicate piano

intro by Logan Evan omas and

bowed bass from Adam Kubota,

the result was a standing ovation

and well deserved.

“All About at Bass” just had

to happen and was great. Maiya

shared her hip flask with Adam

and Logan before stowing it in

her accommodating cleavage. e

band and all singers were out

front for this with the Bass

featured, of course.

e final number was to be

“Shake it Off ” 1950 shoo wop

which had the entire audience on

their feet dancing and clapping

but there was no way PMJ would

be allowed to leave without an

encore! is resulted in the cast

singing the 1970 Jackson Five

style cover of “Such Great

Heights” by e Postal Service,

followed by the obligatory selfie

of the cast with their adoring

audience behind.

GHOST SHIPS OF THE

ARCTIC – JOHN FRANKLIN’S

MISSING SHIPS

In 1845, Sir John Franklin and

his men sailed from England,

hoping to find the final link of

the Northwest Passage. Two ships

were abandoned in 1848, and

it was believed that the crews

walked to their deaths across

the Arctic. However, the recent

discovery of the ships in 2016

re-opened the interpretation of

what happened to Sir John’s men

as they tried to escape the Arctic.

The presentation by Marc-Andre

Bernier, of Canada’s underwater

archaeology team, will showcase

the search efforts and some of the

findings. While Sir John explored

the Arctic, the presentation is part

of the Antarctic Season Opening

Festival, which celebrates

Christchurch’s connection to

Antarctica.
