Rest home boss abuses

pensioners over sign

• By Emily O’Connell

A PROMINENT rest home

owner and businessman verbally

abused his tenants yesterday after

they put up a sign at the complex

complaining about noisy trucks.

John Tooby, owner of the $80

million Lady Wigram Retirement

Village, in Wigram Skies, delivered

a tirade at four elderly residents, including

a woman, using the F-word

frequently and calling them a pack

of bloody kids.

The incident was recorded by a

Star journalist who was at the rest

home to photograph tenants about

their ongoing issues of noisy trucks

on Lodestar Ave.

The elderly residents were clearly

shaken and tried to reason with Mr

Tooby, saying they were his tenants,

but his abuse continued.

Mr Tooby told the pensioners

he was “f*****g pissed off” they

had contacted The Star about the

campaign to stop the trucks.

“Yes, I’m not happy, I’m not putting

up with that s**t.”

He told them the rest home

fence they put the sign up on was

his property and it had to be taken

down.

Mr Tooby has been involved with

building projects since the 1970s,

and set up Golden Healthcare

Group, which operates the Lady

Wigram Retirement Village.

Mr Tooby and Golden Health

Care was nominated as a finalist for

the 2016 EY Entrepreneur of the

Year awards. The company’s website

ironically features one of the elderly

tenants that he abused yesterday on

promotional material.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

The Star

News....................................3-28

NO MATTER which way you

look at it, rest home owner John

Tooby was totally out of line

yesterday (see page 1).

As journalists we cover all

sorts of confrontations – and at

times get abused ourselves in

the process. That goes with the

territory.

But pensioners at the Lady

Wigram Retirement Village

didn’t deserve the tirade they got

from the foul-mouthed Tooby

yesterday.

Our photographer who had

gone there at the invitation of

the tenants to photograph the

sign about stopping trucks was

in his words “shocked”.

The photographer has been

around the traps for many years,

and photographed all sorts of

situations.

I recall a job I was once on

with him once when the subject

we wanted to talk to had

thoughts about backing over us

in his bulldozer. So it takes a bit

to rattle the photographer.

Maybe Tooby’s anger was because

he’s been in the construction

game. Guess what you need

to build things? Trucks.

Options for extending the city’s

investigated, which could include

outdoor dining and beaches. City

council head of strategic policy

Helen Beaumont said initiatives

in Auckland and Wellington

were being evaluated to see

what works. Auckland Council

announced yesterday all beaches,

NO ONE MOURNS THE WICKED: The highly successful musical Wicked will mark the beginning of Showbiz Christchurch’s

Saunders & Co 2018 Season. ​

Wicked new Showbiz season

CRASH VICTIM DIES

A 95-year-old man involved in

a two car collision in Belfast on

October 6 has died. He was Kevin

Charles Englefield. Mr Englefield

suffered what were termed minor

injuries, but died in hospital last

week.

ONE OF the largest grossing

shows in Broadway history will

finally come to the city next

year.

Showbiz Christchurch will

launch its 2018 season with

the highly-acclaimed musical

Wicked.

Not only will it be the society’s

first show of an ambitious year,

it will be the New Zealand theatre

company premiere.

Since its 2003 Broadway debut

Wicked has surpassed $1 billion

in total Broadway revenue joining

The Phantom of the Opera and

The Lion King as the only Broadway

shows to do so. It is Broadway’s

second highest-grossing

show, behind The Lion King.

Wicked is the backstory of

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

and tells the story of an unlikely

friendship between two witches

– the popular Glinda and a

misunderstood green witch

Elphaba.

The show comes as Showbiz

Christchurch prepares to celebrate

its 80th anniversary next

year.

Previously known as

Christchurch Operatic Society

Incorporated, the society staged

its first show The Belle of New

York in 1938.

In nearly 80 years, more than

2,000,000 people have attended

productions produced by Showbiz

Christchurch.

But Wicked is only the beginning

of a busy season with a

full-scale concert and arguably

one of the greatest musicals of

all time lined up for next year.

EPIC: The cast

from Showbiz

Christchurch’s

second

production

of Les

Miserables

which was

staged in

2001.

A concert featuring composers

Cole Porter and Andrew

Lloyd Webber’s hits, Broadway

Hitmen will open in July featuring

a full orchestra, soloists and

a large chorus.

The year will finish with Les

Miserables, a moving story

about the survival of the human

spirit.

The show is set in 19thcentury

France, where

protagionist Jean Valjean

is released from 19 years of

imprisonment and attempts to

start a new life.

Les Misérables has won more

than 100 international awards

and seen by more than 65 million

people.

In Showbiz Christchurch’s

1994 original production the

show played for four weeks and

put 33,000 people through the

then Theatre Royal.

Christchurch law firm

Saunders & Co are partnering

with Showbiz Christchurch and

have put their name to the 2018

season.

Saunders & Co general

manager John Bates said it was

Showbiz’s proven track record of

delivering a consistent, innovative

and high quality product,

with widespread appeal that

attracted the law firm to the

partnership.

The Saunders & Co 2018

season commences at the

Isaac Theatre Royal with

Wicked in April. Tickets go

on sale 9am tomorrow and

can be booked at https://

premier.ticketek.co.nz

BYPASS NEARLY COMPLETE

The Western Belfast Bypass

is 95 per cent complete, with

work set to ramp up over the

next few weeks. Traffic will be

switched onto the Bypass early

next month. A northbound lane

will open to traffic first, followed

by a southbound lane about a

week later. The project team will

complete the final parts, such

as connecting the bypass to the

existing road network and doing

surfacing work on the on/off

ramps. All lanes should be open

in December.

DUX BUILDING TO BE SOLD

A restored character building

housing the Dux Central​

restaurant and bar business at

the former Poplar Lane in central

Christchurch will be sold by

developers Patrick Fontein​and

Paul Naylor of Studio D4. They

will use the proceeds for a large

scale inner-city project they

expect to announce over the next

week or two. Pre-earthquakes, the

apologises

•From page 1

Mr Tooby later apologised to

Bob Prescott, one of the pensioners

he abused.

Said Mr Prescott: “I had a verbal

apology sort of and we did end by

shaking hands and I suppose that

means something but it’s best I say

nothing.

“I’m in a difficult situation now

and it’s better I say nothing.”

The Star attempted unsuccessfully

to talk to Mr Tooby after his

tirade. But in a brief interview by

phone earlier in the afternoon he

said: “If I worried about heavy

trucks driving past, I wouldn’t be

in business, so I would go and find

some real news.”

Mr Prescott and other residents

at the retirement village have been

trying to get authorities to stop

trucks using Lodestar Ave since

earlier this year.

The trucks rattle their units

from 4.30am and doors and windows

can;t be opened because of

the noise, he said.

Residents have been to the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board and the police and

Wigram MP Megan Woods about

the problem.

What was said between rest

THIS IS the transcript of the

conversation between Lady

Wigram Retirement Village

owner John Tooby delivered to a

group of his tenants yesterday.

He confronted them after

becoming aware The Star was

photographing the tenants with

the sign they had put up to

try and stop trucks driving on

Lodestar Ave which they have

been campaigning against for

months.

JOHN TOOBY: You’ll not

take it down in a minute, you’ll

take it down right now (he says

of the sign). I’m being rung

up by the bloody press (The

Star)and I’m not standing for

that bloody bit, that bullsh**t.

Alright?

FEMALE RESIDENT: I’m

sorry but we just . . .

MALE RESIDENT: Are you

alright?

JOHN TOOBY: Do you think

you’re going to re-train the

bloody truckies down here? It’s

none of your business, it’s none

of my business.

If you’ve got a problem you

ring the council up and do it

privately.

MALE RESIDENT: We’ve

done that.

STOP: The Lady Wigram protest sign is removed by one of the

residents.

FEMALE RESIDENT: We

have.

JOHN TOOBY: Well take the

bloody sign off my fence.

FEMALE RESIDENT: Well

you go and drive around and

take it off now.

MALE RESIDENT: No, I’ll go

and do it now . . . (inaudible)

JOHN TOOBY: Who said

. . . what a bloody cheek. If you’ve

got a problem, ring me up.

FEMALE RESIDENT: I think

we already rang you.

MALE RESIDENT: The

manager was involved.

JOHN TOOBY: If you’ve got

a problem, you ring me up but

you do not go sticking signs on

my fence.

I’m not being rung up by

the bloody press, I’ve got more

things to do than put up with

that bulls**t.

MALE RESIDENT: We had

your manageress here when we

first were interviewed.

JOHN TOOBY: I’m the

bloody boss round here, alright?

MALE RESIDENT: I’m sorry,

I thought she was allowed to be

here.

JOHN TOOBY: You’re just

Taskforce to

sort central

city problems

• By Andrew King

THREATS OF violence and

intimidation have prompted a a

taskforce to tackle the “homeless

problem” in the city centre.

Central City Business Association

manager Paul Lonsdale said

“we can’t bury our heads in the

sand” when it comes to the issue.

He will meet today with City

Missioner Matthew Mark, city

councillor and Safer Christchurch

chairwoman Anne Galloway,

and city council staff

members Claire Phillips and

Ana Macadie to start looking at

solutions.

Mr Lonsdale will then speak

with police about their plan.

A police satisfaction survey

released yesterday said only 45

per cent of those asked felt very

safe/safe in the city centre at

night, down from 61 per cent in

2014/15. Six-hundred and thirty

three people were surveyed.

“It will work with the agencies

who have the mandate to resolve

these issues, whether it be addiction,

mental health, employment

or housing so we can address the

problem,” Mr Lonsdale said.

Proposal to prevent people sleeping rough

A new proposal has been

presented to the Ministry

of Social Development to

help find accommodation

for the estimated 200

homeless people in the

city. Bridget Rutherford

reports

• By Bridget Rutherford

ABOUT 200 people are “sleeping

rough” in Christchurch at any

one time.

That’s what a street count done

by city council staff has found,

as part the development of a proposal

to help alleviate the city’s

homeless problem.

The count found 84 per cent

slept solely on the street, 75 per

cent were Maori men, 57 per cent

were aged between 25 and 50,

while 38 per cent said leaving

prison was the reason they were

sleeping rough.

The city council, community

housing providers, Government

social services agencies and

organisations working with

the homeless, have developed a

Housing First proposal to help

get more people into warm and

safe accommodation.

It aims to address homelessness

by working on the causes

VULNERABLE: A homeless man makes his way along Selwyn

St with his belongings.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

behind it, and has been presented

to the Ministry of Social Development

to progress.

The idea works on the basis it

is easier for people to address

issues such as mental health

or addiction, once they are

housed.

So, if it gets the go-ahead, it

would prioritise getting people

into homes, before providing

wrap-around services and support

for them to deal with those

issues.

If the accommodation they

are put in is not right for that

particular person, an alternate

would be found.

Housing First initiatives have

already been rolled out in Auckland

and Hamilton. In August,

the Government invested $16.5

million in the 2017 budget to

expand Housing First into areas

of high need. As part of the proposal,

Christchurch Methodist

Mission, Emerge Aotearoa and

Comcare Trust would take the

lead, supported by Christchurch

City Mission, Te Whare Roimata

and Collective for the

Homeless.

Methodist Mission

executive director Jill

Hawkey did not want

to comment on the

proposal as it was still

under negotiation with

the Ministry.

Ministry of Social Development

housing deputy chief executive

Scott Gallacher said the

Ministry was pleased to receive

the Christchurch proposal.

“We are now working through

the detail of that proposal. We

are not able to offer any further

comment at this time, but expect

to be able to do so in the near

future.”

Collective for the Homeless coordinator

Brenda Lowe-Johnson

said the Housing First policy

would work.

“I think it’s the answer for

homeless problems down here in

Fire rages, homes at risk

Christchurch.”

She said the street count figures

were what she expected.

“We have to make some desperate

measures, because things

are really bad out there.”

She had travelled to Auckland

with Ms Hawkey to look at how

its Housing First worked to get

ideas for the proposal.

Central Ward city councillor

Deon Swiggs (left)

said he was confident the

Ministry would support

the initiative.

He said homeless people

were vulnerable, and

needed more assistance.

“What you see down

the street is just the tip of the

iceberg,” he said.

“People that fall through the

cracks – we need to be able to

make sure they are looked after.”

A report is expected to go to

the city council’s social, community

development and housing

committee next month, which

would look at time frames, what

role the city council would play,

and further advice.

City council funding for the

initiative would need to be

considered as part of the 2018

long-term plan process.

The Reception to Celebrate Chinese

National Day and welcome Consul General

Wang Zhiijian Held in Christchurch

On 26th September, the Consulate General of China

in Christchurch held the reception to celebrate the

68thAnniversary of founding of the People’s Republic

of China and to welcome Consul General Wang

Zhijian at Chateau on the Park in Christchurch.

Around 200 guests attended the function, including

Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel, Special Advisor

and Director of Ministry of Foreign Affairs and

Trade in Christchurch Ambassador Phillip Gibson,

several other South Island Mayors, local dignitaries,

friends from various circles and representatives of

Chinese community, enterprises and students in the

consular districts.

Consul General Wang Zhijian noted in his

remarks that since the founding of the People’s

Recublic of China 68 years ago, especially through

39 years of Reform and Opening-up, China has

significantly increased its overall national strength

and remarkably improved people’s living standard.

Since the beginning of this year, China’s economy

has maintained sound and steady performance

with its economic growth rate ranking high among

major economies. The Chinese government has

been promoting innovation-driven development,

pursuing supply-side structural reform, accelerating

the shift in development driving forces, and

pushing forward economic upgrading. Led by the

five concepts of innovation, coordination, green

development, openness and sharing, China aims to

complete building a moderately prosperous society

in all aspects by 2020.

Consul General Wang emphasized that while

speeding up its own development, China has taken

a more active part in international affairs, practicing

Chinese concepts as well as contributing its wisdom

and solutions for global development. More than

140 countries including New Zealand and more

than 80 international organizations attended the

Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation

held in Beijing this May with remarkable outcomes

achieved in policy coordination, connectivity of

infrastructure and facilities, unimpeded trade,

financial integration, and people-to-people bonds.

China would continue to make joint efforts with

international community to build a world of lasting

peace, common security and prosperity which is

also open, inclusive, clean and beautiful.

Consul General Wang spoke highly of the good

momentum of bilateral relationship. He pointed out

that Premier Li Keqiang’s successful visit to New

Zealand this March injected new strong dynamism

to further promoting China-New Zealand

Comprehensive Strategic Partnership and added

more “firsts” to the bilateral relationship. Boosted by

the continuously deepened bilateral ties, the locallevel

interactions between China and South Island

have been uplifted. The friendly city cooperation

has been further enhanced, and the quality and

efficiency of bilateral substantive cooperation

have been improved with an increasing number of

Chinese enterprises taking interest in investing in

South Island.

Consul General Wang said this year marks the 45th

anniversary of the establishment of the China-

New Zealand diplomatic ties, and the bilateral

relationship was at its best now. As the third

Chinese Consul General in Christchurch, he was

keenly aware of the great responsibility and glorious

mission on himself. He was determined to build on

the excellent job of Consul General Jin Zhijian, his

predecessor, and continue the pioneering efforts to

push the exchanges and cooperation between China

and South Island to a new stage. He hoped that

friends from all circles could provide support to the

Consulate and himself. As the Mid-Autumn festival

was drawing near, he also sent festive greetings to all

the compatriots in the consular district on behalf of

the Consulate General.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel, on behalf of South Island

mayors, warmly congratulated on Chinese National

Day and welcomed Consul General Wang’s

resumption of office. She pointed out that remarkable

achievements in development have been made since

the founding of new China. Christchurch as well as

the whole South Island attached great importance to

the exchanges and cooperation with China and have

confidence in the important opportunities brought

about by the Belt and Road Initiative. During recent

years, South Island and China have enjoyed flourish

interactions and signed a series of cooperation

agreements in economic and trade, culture and

education as well as innovation, with mutually

beneficially relationship constantly intensified. The

local governments in South Island highly appreciated

the outstanding contributions by the Chinese

Consulate and the previous two Consul Generals for

promoting the bilateral relationship, and expected

to further consolidate the good coordination with

the Consulate General so as to push forward the the

friendly exchanges and cooperation between both

sides in the future.

Ambassador Gibson spoke highly of the historical

leaps China has made in the course of reform and

construction as well as the positive developments

in the New Zealand-China relationship. He noted

that the remarkable achievements in the bilateral

relationship made so far were far above expectation,

and he felt very pleased and encouraged as one

of those directly involved in the process of the

establishment of bilateral ties. Both countries not

only have fostered close economic and trade bonds,

but also enhanced the people to people exchanges

and interactions, exerting positive impact on

the long-term stable development of bilateral

relationship. He pointed out that the friendly

interactions between South Island and China has

entered a stage of rapid development during recent

years with the importance of South Island to the

bilateral relationship further highlighted. The New

Zealand side warmly welcomed Consul General

Wang’s assumption of office and wished him ever

greater success on the good foundation of the

previous two Consul Generals.

The reception was held in a warm and festive

atmosphere, and guests sang high praise for the

achievements of China’s reform and construction,

expressing faith to the prospects of the bilateral

relationship and expectation to jointly promote the

bilateral friendly exchanges and cooperation further

in the future. The photo exhibition held on site

with the theme “2017 China Story” also drew much

attention from the guests present.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Dalziel in US to share quake lessons

• By Bridget Rutherford

MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel will

warn two major United States

cities in danger of a mega-quake

about the importance of building

safety laws.

She is visiting Seattle and Portland

this week and next, and will

speak to their emergency management

teams about the dangers

of unreinforced masonry buildings.

They were responsible for

killing 39 people in the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

They have exactly the same

issues as we do in New Zealand,

built in the same era,” Ms Dalziel

said.

Seattle and Portland are on the

north-west coast of the US, next

to the North Pacific Ocean.

They both sit on shallow faults

and scientists warn the rupture

of the Cascadia subduction zone

off the coast would cause a magnitude

9 megathrust earthquake.

Many say it is overdue.

Unreinforced masonry buildings

don’t have steel reinforcing.

Seattle has more than 1100, while

Portland has 500.

Both are working on proposals

requiring those buildings to

undergo seismic retrofits sooner.

Currently there are requirements

DANGER: Mayor Lianne Dalziel will speak about the February

22, 2011, earthquake in Seattle and Portland, which are at risk

of a mega-quake if the Cascadia subduction zone ruptures.

SOURCE: GEEKWIRE

to strengthen them, but only

when the owner applies to do

other building work.

They are acutely aware of

the risks and that’s why they’ve

asked me to speak,” Ms Dalziel

said.

Last year, a New Zealand law

change was made requiring owners

of buildings with unsecured

earthquake.

or unreinforced masonry to

strengthen them within 7.5

years.

Ms Dalziel said cities needed

to learn from experiences so they

were not forgotten.

“I’m glad our law was changed

– I wish it hadn’t taken these

deaths to open our eyes to what

we learned 80 years before.”

Ms Dalziel is visiting Seattle as

part of a sister cities trip and has

tied in visits to Portland, Tacoma

and San Francisco.

She said Canterbury Civil Defence

Emergency Management

visited Seattle in 2013, where

they focused on unreinforced

masonry buildings and retrofitting.

Ann Brower also attended. She

was the only survivor when an

unreinforced Colombo St building

collapsed on a bus during the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

killing 12.

Ms Dalziel will head to Montreal

for the ITS World Congress,

where Christchurch’s autonomous

vehicle developments will

feature, before returning for the

city council meeting on November

2.

Wheelie bin markers

• By Bridget Rutherford

SIGNS HAVE been

painted on St Albans

streets to remind residents

where to put their rubbish

bins on collection day.

It comes after people

living on Colombo St were

leaving their bins on the

newly-formed Papanui

Parallel cycleway, forcing

some cyclists to ride on the

road.

The city council has

painted bin stencils along

Colombo and Rutland Sts

to educate residents to put

their bins on the side of the

road, rather than the grass

verge or cycleway.

It has also dropped off

pamphlets showing them

the correct location.

Before that, residents

had not been told where to

put them.

City council acting head

of transport Lynette Ellis

said 260 stencils had been

painted along Colombo St,

while some had also gone

on parts of Rutland St.

They are not intended

to be repainted as they

should last two to three

years before fading out

and residents will become

familiar with the location

of the bins,” she said.

“Residents were sent a

letter showing the correct

locations and the stencils

are a reminder.”

Ms Ellis said it cost

$3000 to paint the stencils.

At this stage, they were

only on the Papanui

Parallel cycleway route at

specific locations, she

said.

REMINDER: White signs

have been painted on

some St Albans streets

to remind residents not

to put their bins on the

cycleways.

Watch the Timeball grow

YOU DON’T need to

leave the comfort of your

living room to watch the

rebuild of Lyttelton’s iconic

Timeball Tower.

Heritage New

Zealand and Hawkins

Construction are sharing

costs for a time lapse

camera that captures

progress of the build every

10min from 6.30am to

5.30pm.

“We encourage people

to view the time lapse

camera and watch the

rebuild in real time. The

tower rebuild should begin

to become quite noticeable

on Lyttelton’s skyline

in the next few weeks,”

Heritage New Zealand

general manager Nick

Chin said.

He said it will be a

welcome reminder for

locals of the familiar

Chronic Obstructive

Pulmonary Disease

landmark that stood at the

site since 1876 but has been

missing since the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

The Timeball Tower will

be finished by the end of

April.

An internal concrete

The Star

shell which will house

the automated timeball

mechanism is currently

being constructed on site.

The stone masonry work

will take place once it is

completed, using as much

of the original heritage

fabric as possible from

the station following its

deconstruction.

“It is really fantastic to

actually see something

physical appear at the

Timeball site again,” Mr

Chin said.

When completed the

tower will overlook the

harbour and township,

with the timeball dropping

at 1pm daily.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Value of city’s art surges to $13.7m

As new buildings pop up in Christchurch after the

earthquakes, the city’s public art collection has

also grown. Bridget Rutherford looks at the new

pieces

THE VALUE of the city’s public

outdoor art has risen to $13.7

million with 19 new pieces added

to the collection in the last eight

years.

The city council has had its

outdoor artwork in public places

revalued by Art + Object. It was

the first valuation since June

2009.

Usually it would have been

done every three years, but the

September 4, 2010, and February

22, 2011, earthquakes meant it

could not happen until now.

Eight years ago, the total value

of the city’s public art was $5.9

million.

City council head of parks

Brent Smith said, since then, 19

new pieces had been added to the

collection.

Some were gifts, while others

were partially paid for by the city

council through its Public Art

Advisory Group alongside other

organisations.

Mr Smith said due to commercial

sensitivity, he could not say

how much each cost, but released

what each was valued at.

The figures show the most valuable

was the Fanfare sculpture

at Chaneys Corner by artist Neil

Dawson at just over $3 million.

It was funded through the

Public Art Advisory Group and

SCAPE Public Art.

That was followed by Antony

Gormley’s STAY, which consists

of two humanoid cast-iron sculptures,

one in the Avon River and

another at the Arts Centre.

They are valued at $956,522.

The city council put about

$500,000 towards the work, with

the Canterbury Earthquake

Recovery Authority paying

$338,000.

The $160,000 in extra costs like

transport, legal fees and installation

was paid for through sponsorship.

Critics said the ratepayer

money should have been spent

elsewhere.

Solidarity Grid, a series of 20

lamp posts by Mischa Kuball

along Park Tce, which was

bought by SCAPE and the Public

Art Advisory Group fund, was

valued at $869,565.

The most recent public art

work to be installed was Pupu

Harakeke by artist Virginia

King, which sits in the square of

Ngai Tahu’s King Edward Barracks

development.

Valued at $63,362, Pupu

Harakeke is a large, stainless

steel shell, which has words cut

out of it and rotates on a pole.

It was jointly paid for by Ngai

Tahu, the city council and anchor

tenant EY, and installed in

March.

EY partner Ben Willems

picked the sculpture to help

remember those lost in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

including his wife Lisa Willems.

Lyttelton’s bronze Sled Dog by

Mark Whyte was gifted last year.

It was valued between $32,000-

$42,000.

In 2013, Lyttelton’s Albion

Square got three pieces: The

$10,075 Mandala, the Fifth Ship

Flagpoles valued at $11,342, and

the most valuable, Waharoa, at

$113,043.

Bishopdale Library’s Orauwhata

was installed last year. Its

value was $40,000.

Two others were unveiled

last year at Aranui Community

Centre. Nga Hoe was valued at

$76,900, while the cast concrete

design was $5000.

In 2015, Te Ao Marama, valued

at $21,400, was installed in

Scarborough Park.

Two years prior, the Papanui-

Innes Community Board commissioned

Sam Mahon to create

a sculpture of the late Graham

Condon, which now sits outside

the Graham Condon Sport and

Recreation Centre. It was valued

at $69,565.

Tree Houses for Swamp Dwellers

was valued at $391,304. It

was installed on the corner of

Gloucester and Colombo Sts in

2013.

In 2012, Koauau O Tane

Whakapiripiri Pou and Ohinehou

Pou were both gifted and put

in place in Governors Bay’s Pony

Point Reserve and Lyttelton’s

Sutton Reserve.

and copper boxes outside Ara

Institute of Canterbury, was put

in place in 2011.

Its value was $304,348, while

Serenade in Fendalton Park was

installed in 2010. It was now

valued at $55,000.

Mr Smith said public art was

important because it was an

indicator of cultural well being,

and promoted Christchurch as

a centre of artistic and cultural

excellence.

“It provides for a city environment

enriched by a variety of

works of art in public spaces and

recognition of the excellence and

achievements of local artists.”

From hospital bed to the dressage ring

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SERIOUSLY ILL Maddie Collins

has bounced back from hospital

to win at an equestrian event.

Last week, The Star reported

Maddie, who needs potentially

lifesaving kidney treatment in

the United States, was in

Christchurch Hospital with

peritonitis – an infection of the

lining around her abdomen.

But shortly after being discharged

from hospital, Maddie

was back out horse-riding her

way to victory in the North Loburn

Equestrian spring dressage

tournament at the weekend.

She won all of her four dressage

events for her level, making

her the champion of the competition.

“I don’t know how she does

it. How she can go from a highdependency

unit to winning a

horse show. Her stamina is just

incredible,” her mother Sarah

Manson Collins said.

“It has absolutely shattered her

but it’s what she wants to be doing.

It’s what keeps her well.”

Maddie’s instructor Cheryl

French, of Carnmore Equestrian,

said Maddie has got huge riding

talent.

“She did very well to last two

days competing and still stayed

bright and cheery and gets on

so well with the other kids that

come to us. She is a real inspiration

to all of us,” she said.

Mrs Manson Collins said

Maddie will continue with heavy

treatment for the next two weeks

and has had to go back into

hospital most days for blood tests

since she was discharged.

“As she is getting older, she

is more aware of how timeconsuming

and how hard it is to

care for someone on dialysis that

is medically fragile,” she said.

Mrs Manson Collins said the

infection made the need for a

transplant more urgent.

“She just needs a kidney. We’re

just trying to sit tight here and

hope it happens,” she said.

Last week marked five years

since Maddie’s father, Adam

Collins, donated one of his kidneys

to her. Five hours after the

operation, her body rejected it.

Her family have been fundraising

to get Maddie a kidney

transplant in the United States,

where the treatment offered

would make it less likely a

donated kidney would be rejected.

But the treatment would cost

more than $700,000, and is also

conditional on Maddie’s brother,

Tomas, donating one of his

kidneys to an American patient

as part of a “paired exchange”

programme.

Mrs Manson Collins said she

hoped Maddie’s story would

inspire people to become organ

donors.

Next Friday, St Thomas’ of

Canterbury College and Villa

Maria College will be joining

Fire rages, homes at risk

Residents lose out to quake investors

• By Gabrielle Stuart

CANTABRIANS became

“collateral damage” postearthquake

as the Government

focused on telling positive stories

to attract investors, an academic

has said.

Victoria University of Wellington

architecture head of school

Morten Gjerde wrote a research

paper on Government

communication

after the

earthquakes for

an international

conference in

China last year.

Morten

Gjerde

He said in the

paper that the

Government

was “more eager to tell positive

stories about recovery to national

and international audiences than

they have been to keep residents

informed”.

“It would be fair to say that

local residents have been

collateral damage so far during

this recovery as leaders have

sought to curry favour with local

and international investors in

order to help drive it,” the paper

said.

But former Canterbury Earthquake

Recovery Authority chief

executive Roger Sutton strongly

disagreed. He said communicating

with investors had only been

a small part of CERA’s focus.

“If I think about my time

there, I spent 95 per cent with

real Christchurch people and

five per cent with that kind of

person,” he said.

He said CERA “fronted a lot”

to Cantabrians, including at

some hostile meetings.

“We held a meeting with Port

Hills residents over the zoning,

and I think a lot of Government

organisations would never have

had the courage to front there,”

he said.

But he agreed that CERA

could have communicated better

about rebuild problems.

“It’s difficult for the

Government to give bad news,”

he said.

People in leadership roles

naturally wanted to tell the

positive stories of successes, he

said.

He said he had personally been

told off for doing that by Mayor

Lianne Dalziel when he was chief

executive of Orion before he

moved to CERA.

He had been making a

have become collateral damage during the earthquake

recovery as leaders favour local and international investors.

statement about power cuts

after the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, and had focused on

the 92 per cent of Canterbury

homes to which the company

had returned power, he said.

“I remember Lianne rang me

up and said, Roger, don’t be such

a moron. Don’t talk about the 92

per cent, talk about the eight per

cent and when they will get their

power on,” he said.

City councillor Deon Swiggs,

who started the Rebuild

Christchurch website after the

earthquakes to help people

access information, agreed with

the research findings.

He said CERA had not

communicated enough

information to residents and

had tried to only tell the positive

stories.

“People lost trust very early

on with Government in terms of

what they were being told.” Dr

Gjerde’s paper also criticised the

slow pace of the rebuild, saying

it had been skewed in favour of

those who were wealthy.

“Those living on the city’s

more affluent western suburbs

were affected initially by the

quakes far less than those

living to the east. Since then,

money and other

resources have

flowed much

more freely in the

west which has

seen these areas

return quickly to

pre-earthquake

conditions,

whereas those

Roger

Sutton

living in the poorer central and

eastern suburbs continue to

battle toward recovery with far

fewer resources to call upon,” he

said.

Dr Gjerde said his conclusions

were based on Christchurch

research findings and

comparisons with disaster

recovery processes in other

countries. He hoped the paper,

called Building Back Better,

could be used to improve future

disaster response processes.

Efforts in beautifying

city recognised

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE PERSON tasked

with keeping Christchurch

beautiful has been

recognised with a national

award.

Linda Keall won the

Ruud Kleinpaste Award

on Friday at the Beautiful

Awards 2017.

It recognises a Keep New

Zealand Beautiful member

whose efforts go above and

beyond to enhance the

organisation’s mission.

“It was a big surprise, it

was really lovely,” she said.

Ms Keall is Keep

Christchurch Beautiful’s

manager, and has been in

the part-time position for

about eight years.

She co-ordinates cleanup

events and volunteers,

helps with graffiti eradication

and funding, and runs

environment education

programmes in schools.

The former chemistry

teacher said she particularly

enjoyed working in

schools, acknowledging

the work people did,

and helping people get

involved.

When the Ellerslie

International Flower Show

was running in Christchurch,

Keep Christchurch

Beautiful entered in the

flowerbed display.

Ms Keall said she was

particularly proud of an

entry with Lincoln University

students, which won

bronze in the show’s last

year in 2014.

She said everyone could

take some responsibility in

“We all live here, it’s for

all of us if it’s nice. It’s really

easy and it doesn’t take

much energy.”

Masterton was named

the Most Beautiful City at

the awards ceremony in

Hastings, which is based

on environmental action,

heritage, community involvement,

and tourism.

But Ms Keall said it was

good to be able to recognise

different groups and

places in the awards.

“For me, I really like that

it gets shared around.”

Ms Keall’s award is

named after Ruud Kleinpaste,

a broadcaster and

gardener known as The

Bug Man.

She could not attend

the awards ceremony on

Friday because she was

recovering from the flu.

Ms Keall said in her

spare time, she enjoyed

spending time in her

garden, with family, and

walking her two labradors

Kenya and Eva.

Originally she fostered

them before they trained

to become guide dogs, but

they were not suitable, so

they came back to live with

the family, she said.

Keep New Zealand

Beautiful chairwoman

Alexandra Davids said the

organisation was lucky to

have Ms Keall.

“We are looking at really

pushing the awards

Flooding continues to be an issue

THIS WEEK while coalition

talks have been continuing

in Wellington, I have been at

talks of a different kind.

On Monday, along with

Deputy Prime Minister and

Climate Change Minister

Paula Bennett, I set off to the

international climate talks in

Fiji.

This was a pre-meeting of a

larger meeting in November

when the countries of the

world will come together to try

and accelerate action around

the Paris Climate Agreement.

For the participants from

over 70 countries, meeting on

a Pacific Island brought into

sharp relief the need for urgent

action on climate change. With

the Pacific Ocean literally lapping

at the edge of the conference

venue and memories of

the devastating Cyclone Winston

still fresh in the minds

of our hosts, the issues of sea

level rise and cyclones were at

the fore in everyone’s thinking.

The mood of the meeting

was clear – there needs to be

action now to put the words

of the Paris Agreement into

action.

But how climate change will

alter things is not just an issue

for other parts of the world.

There are real impacts and

issues that we have to consider

much closer to home in our

own city and region.

Increased flood events and

associated drainage are going

to be an ongoing issue.

Likewise, how the climate is

changing things must also be a

consideration in any decisions

we make about future uses of

the residential red zone.

Events such as last summer’s

Port Hills fires will become

more frequent as our part of

the world gets drier and this

will also have an impact for

farming and food production

in our region.

Getting governments from

around the world to agree on

the need for global action on

climate change was remarkable.

Now the challenge is

getting actions in place.

It is not just governments

who will make the difference

– it is businesses, cities and of

course all of us.

•Megan Woods is Labour’s

Canterbury spokeswoman

KidsCan says demand for

emergency food supplies

in low decile schools has

Christchurch

Jenni Hughes – Sorry, but

this is an issue of child neglect.

Sick of seeing this everywhere.

Go to WINZ, go to a food

bank, ask your friends and

family, ask your neighbours. No

decent human would let your

kids starve.

Selena Beecroft – This

makes me so sad and angry. I

see many young mums who

have the newest phones and

fresh new nails yet they go to

WINZ and get quotes for their

kids clothing . . . are you serious

Fire rages, homes at risk

LAST YEAR was

the 35th anniversary

of the sister city

relationship between

Christchurch and

Seattle.

In 2016, I welcomed

a citizen delegation,

led by the Seattle/Christchurch

Sister City Board chairwoman

Rachel Jacobsen. They came in

February so they could join with

us for the commemoration of the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

and the dedication of the National

Earthquake Memorial.

I made a commitment to

honour the relationship by making

the reciprocal visit this year.

I am taking the opportunity to

visit Portland, Tacoma and San

Francisco at the same time and,

following the visit, will attend

the ITS World Congress in

Montreal, where Christchurch is

being featured as a city through

the efforts of HMI and the autonomous

vehicle developments

in Christchurch.

I am also using the opportunity

of the sister city visit to

Seattle to speak to their office of

emergency management (and

also to the Portland equivalent)

about our experience, with a

particular focus on unreinforced

masonry buildings.

Lianne Dalziel

I am always pleased to speak to

such groups, because I believe we

can learn a lot from each other;

and for those of us who have experienced

disaster, we know how

much others want to reach out

and help in times of need.

It is not often that we get a

chance to speak before something

happens. I hope that my

message can help them choose

a path that would minimise the

impact of an earthquake should

they experience anything of

the magnitude we have been

through.

I have spoken before about the

need to learn the lessons of our

experience and to build them

into our regulatory frameworks.

It is so vital to learn the lessons

of each experience and embed

them, because people forget.

I always remind people that

what occurred in Christchurch

on February 22, 2011, was not

without precedent as far as unreinforced

masonry buildings were

concerned.

In February 1931, 80 years

before, many of the first people

who died that day as a result of

the Hawkes Bay earthquake,

were those who ran out of the

buildings and were crushed in

the rubble of unreinforced masonry.

We gained a lot as a country

from this and subsequent

events. We established a national

disaster insurance scheme – the

Earthquake Commission – our

building code was introduced

and the Standards Council was

set up. But somehow the risks

associated with unreinforced

masonry, parapets and decorative

features were not highlighted

for action. And we continued to

live with the risk that they posed.

Buildings with unreinforced

masonry were responsible for the

deaths of 39 people in the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

I’m glad our law was changed

– I wish it hadn’t taken these

deaths to open our eyes to what

we learned 80 years before. I

hope I can deliver a positive

message to our sister city Seattle,

whose citizens stood by us at our

time of need.

saw was a young guy early 20s

Our People

John Rosanowski

Teaching, writing and kicking goals

John Rosanowski has

released his controversial

book about the 1866

Maungatapu murders.

Bridget Rutherford spoke

to him about teaching

at Aranui High, rugby

league and why he

believes two innocent

men were hanged for

murder

Why did you decide to write

Treachery Road?

Well, I was reading some old

papers on Papers Past about 10

years ago and I came across part

of the trial for the Burgess gang

murders in the Wakamarina

Valley near Canvastown,

Marlborough, in 1866. As I was

reading the evidence, I thought

‘there’s something funny

going on here’. I began reading

the whole trial, and the clash

between the police informer

Thomas Sullivan and the gang

leader Richard Burgess. Sullivan

said the murders were done

by Burgess, Thomas Kelly and

Philip Levy. Sullivan said he was

merely the lookout. Burgess said

the murders were the work of

Sullivan on his own. The jury

accepted Sullivan’s version and

the other three were hanged. I

set out to answer the question:

Were innocent men executed?

I’ve discovered Sullivan was a

magnificent liar; it seems clear

two innocent men (Kelly and

Levy) were hanged. They went

to their death calling Sullivan to

come clean, even as they stepped

onto the gallows.

Do you see your new book as

being controversial?

It certainly is because there

have been about a dozen pieces

of writing on it. Wayne Martin,

a Christchurch writer, published

a book on the murders. Mine

is controversial because it

contradicts his version. I’ve

found various pieces of evidence

WRITER:

Historian John

Rosanowski

has released

his new book

Treachery

Road, which

suggests two

innocent men

were hanged

for murder.

MARTIN

HUNTER

he wasn’t privy to. No-one else

has located the evidence I’ve got

from Tasmanian convict conduct

register archives. The state

government in Australia has

put all its convict information

online. I’ve been able to trawl

through mountains of evidence

from those sources. Australia has

also started putting its papers

online. From that, it’s clear the

evidence Sullivan gave about

himself in court was false. He

didn’t come out on the Canton

in 1840, he was never a convict

overseer, and he wasn’t married

in a big cathedral in Melbourne,

as he claimed, by the bishop.

Why did you get into

researching and writing books

and novels?

It’s part of my background. I

went to school in Reefton, then

went to study at Canterbury

University where I did my thesis

on the midland railway – that’s

the TranzAlpine now – and the

political shenanigans prior to it

being built. That was supervised

by Philip Ross May, the author

of the classic history on the

West Coast gold rushes. That

started me off. I went teaching

and taught at Aranui High

School. During that time, I cowrote

seven history texts with

my colleagues. I went on to the

head office in Wellington and

was involved in running school

certificate. I was chief examiner

at Aranui High prior to that.

Why did you go teaching?

My father and grandfather

were coal and gold miners.

Our People

Former teacher explores New Zealand history

I was at Aranui High for nearly

20 years and had a spell as acting

inspector of schools, which was

a good experience. I was also

part of the advisory service for

history teaching with teachers in

other schools.

Why did you stay there for so

long?

I was working with some very

talented people; it was a very

good school and it was a lot of

fun. There were very able people

at Aranui High. Keri Hulme, the

author of The Bone People, was

a librarian during her time at

Aranui, and several people went

into newspapers. Others went

into the diplomatic service.

Was it sad seeing Aranui

High close to make way for

Haeata Community Campus?

I was sad it closed. But on the

other hand, I’m not pessimistic

of the chances of the new arrangement.

And I hear you spent a bit

of time in Papua New Guinea.

How did that come about?

I had a bit of an OE, my wife

and I and our two children.

There was an opportunity to

teach in Madang and, during

that time, I was captain and

coach of the Madang rugby

league team and played in various

tournaments. I represented

Papua New Guinea on their Australian

tour. I was in Papua New

Guinea for a year or two and,

from there, went to Mt Isa in

Australia. I took up the position

of captain/coach for the Christian

Brothers Club and our team

won the Foley Shield, which is a

bit like the Ranfurly Shield for

North Queensland. They got me

a job in the school. We stayed a

year at Mt Isa and were due to

come back because we were having

our third child. I went back

teaching at Aranui. Living in Mt

Isa was very interesting. Being a

single purpose town, there were

a lot of young men who did a

great deal of drinking, gambling

and fighting. Because there were

so many young men there, the

RESEARCH:

John

Rosanowski

has written

a number

of books,

most of

which were

based on the

history of the

West Coast.

rugby league was very strong.

Have you done other

coaching?

The university club was in

need of a coach so I gave them

a hand for three or four years.

I was busy with research. I did

coach the New Zealand universities

team on three internal tours.

There are a lot of talented players

in the universities.

You played for Linwood

didn’t you?

I started out playing for Shirley

initially. I went to Linwood

because Lory Blanchard was

coaching. He was the New

Zealand coach. I probably played

for them for nearly 10 years. We

won a couple of premierships in

that time.

I hear you were a prolific goal

kicker?

I will say – although I certainly

kicked a few goals in my time

– when you’re playing for a top

team, they score very close to the

post and more often it means

you end up getting a lot easier

kicks.

Do you still go along and

watch?

I usually get over and watch

Linwood. I went to the final

at Linfield Park – it was a very

good match. I think the right

team won (Linwood 34-20),

but Hornby put on a very good

showing.

What other books have you

written?

I’ve got two main ones. The

Bottled Lightning: The Story of

the Reefton Electric Light and

A History of the West Coast of

the Southern Alps. I’ve written

various others, such as the cover

story for the Listener for the New

Zealand electricity centennial.

I guess your interest in the

West Coast comes from growing

up there?

Yes, I’ve never really left it if

you know what I mean. People

from the West Coast, they never

lose their loyalty. My people

were early New Zealand pioneers

who came from Poland in 1875

and landed at Jackson Bay in

Westland. I tell people the Rosanowskis

were brought in to bring

a bit of Polish.

What do you like to do in

your spare time?

I’m a member of the Riccarton

Racecourse Bowling Club. And I

have sons, daughters and grandchildren.

I am actually working

on another book, it’s another

goldfield murder mystery called

Murder on Broadway, which is

Reefton’s main street. It is fiction

and is set in Reefton in 1877. It

involves a young naive police

constable left in charge of the

town over Christmas and New

Year. It is filled with crooked

publicans and cops, cheerful exconvicts,

hard-nosed prostitutes,

white collar criminals and a

team of acrobats. It’s not very far

away from publication.

What do your kids do now?

My son Jonathan is a computer

programmer for Trimble

Navigation, Anna is a nurse at

Christchurch Hospital and Sarah

is currently at Oxford University

writing her master’s thesis in patent

law and computer software.

I’ve got six grandchildren. One,

Emily, is in the New Zealand

roller derby team. She’s going to

Manchester next year with the

team.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Experts ride in for cycle congress

TRANSPORT experts from

around the world are gathering

in Christchurch this week to

share ideas about the benefits

cycle networks bring to

communities.

It’s the first time the Asia

Pacific Cycle Congress has been

held outside Queensland, and

Christchurch is the perfect location

for delegates to consider

how to harness new technology

and innovation to deliver cycleways

as a core part of transport

infrastructure.

For Steve Hoyt-McBeth, a

programme manager at the

Portland Bureau of Transportation

and one of the congress’

keynote speakers, building good

infrastructure is critical to getting

people on their bikes. While

that sounds simple, it is anything

but easy.

“We’ve developed our transportation

systems focused on the

automobile and changing that

takes money and political will.

At a high level, it’s pretty simple:

The places with the best bicycle

infrastructure have the highest

cycling rates. Where it’s more

comfortable to drive than bike,

the bike rates are low.”

Mr Hoyt-McBeth has helped

revolutionise cycle commuting in

Portland, United States, over the

past 20 years. He will be sharing

his experiences at the Asia

Pacific Cycle congress today.

“Building protected bike lanes

is a lot more expensive and

requires a lot more trade-offs.

So I would say that creating a

network of bikeways is important

to grabbing that first wave

of cyclists and the protected bike

lane network is paramount if you

want to see a true transformation.”

“In Portland, we have a strong

community culture around

bikes. On Fridays volunteers

serve donuts and coffee to people

biking into downtown. We

have an amazing 21-day bike

festival, Pedalpalooza, at the end

of spring with more than 100

different themed bike rides. It’s

completely volunteer-run and

underscores the strength of the

grassroots,’’ Mr Hoyt-McBeth

said.

“I can’t wait to . . . experience

your cycleways and learn from

the locals. Getting to speak at the

Asia Pacific Cycling Congress

is a tremendous opportunity

for me. As they may apply to

Christchurch, I hope to share

lessons from Portland.”

The city council is building

a network of major cycle

routes over the next seven years,

connecting suburbs, shopping

areas, businesses, schools and

sporting destinations.

There has already been an

increase in the number of people

using the cycleways that have

been completed.

About the Asia Pacific

Cycle Congress:

•Christchurch is currently

hosting the congress which

started on Tuesday and

finishes tomorrow.

•It is the first time the congress

has been held outside

Queensland.

The programme features

international experts in

topics such as community

engagement, supporting,

urban planning and design,

safety, health and wellness.

•Speakers include Phillip

Darnton, executive director

of the Bicycle Association

in the United Kingdom,

and Steve Hoyt-McBeth,

programme manager of the

Portland Bureau of Transportation

and manager of

the renowned BIKETOWN

bike share project. Other

invited speakers have travelled

from across Europe,

Australia and New Zealand.

Delicious berries

If you want to grow berries, but aren’t sure which ones or how,

Hannah Zwartz has a place to start

THERE ARE many things to love

about growing berries.

They’re compact plants,

squeezing against fences, into

large tubs or otherwise unused

corners.

Many tolerate part-shade,

which is useful on an urban

section, and makes them great

companion plants forming the

understorey or canopy of a ‘food

forest’.

Unlike fruit trees, they crop

within the first year of planting,

and of course, they taste all the

more delicious when freshly

picked.

‘FEET IN THE SHADE, HEADS

IN THE SUN’

Many berries are found

naturally in deciduous

woodlands, lifting themselves

into sunlight to flower and fruit,

but spreading their roots in deep,

damp leaf litter. They need sun

to fruit well, but they dislike dry,

baking heat, preferring a coolish

root run that never totally dries

out. Too much humidity or

waterlogging are not good either.

Ideal conditions for most berries

would be free-draining soil with

plenty of compost and leaf mould,

deeply mulched with rotting

woodchip.

WHERE CAN BERRIES

GROW?

The ultimate garden accessory

must be a walk-in netting-covered

cage (birds love ripe berries

almost as much as children do).

Failing that, those with smaller

gardens can use a fence or wall to

support berry canes, with netting

attached to drop down and cover

ripening fruit. There’s a berry

to suit most niches – even the

smallest garden has room for a

tub or barrel with strawberries,

raspberries or boysenberry canes.

STRAWBERRIES

A bowl of fresh-picked

strawberries for summer

breakfasts is an achievable luxury;

as well as being delicious these

berries are rich in vitamins and

iron. Ancestral strawberries were

woodland plants, fruiting early,

before the leaf canopy closed over

for summer. Modern strawberries

are bred for later fruiting, and

need lots of sun to fruit well,

but still hate to dry out. For a

longer season, plant more than

one variety. Prepare a bed with

plenty of compost; planting along

a ridge above a ditch makes for

easy watering. A nice deep mulch

of pine needles is said to improve

the flavour while also deterring

snails. Strawberries also do well

in large pots, which can be moved

into the garden’s sunniest spots as

berries are ripening.

Plants might be short-lived,

producing their best crops for

just a few years, but you can

keep propagating runners for an

ongoing supply of new plants. Peg

the first runner into a pot, to be

cut off and replanted once roots

have grown. (Those further down

the line will never crop as well.)

Replanting these runners every

winter or spring, while digging

out the oldest plants, keeps the

bed producing well. Experts

recommend six to seven plants

per person.

Wild strawberry

Fragaria vesca has smaller (pea-sized)

fruits, not so juicy but very sweet and

flavoursome, borne year-round. It can

handle more shade and makes a great

ground cover under fruit trees or roses,

or scrambling along the edges

of paths. This is one type of

strawberry that propagates

itself from seed, but

being shallow-rooted

it’s easily removed if

it starts infringing on

other territories.

RASPBERRIES

Raspberries spread

by suckering and once

planted are difficult to

dig out. A good position

could be against an eastfacing

wall that gets morning

sun, planted at the feet of deciduous

trees such as apples, or as part of a

hedgerow with other shrubs and berries.

They can happily coexist with annual

companions such as borage and calendula.

Remove perennial weeds like buttercup

or couch before planting, as you won’t be

able to do so once the raspberries’ roots

have developed. Thick mulching protects

the root zone and helps keep weeds away.

About two canes per person is

recommended; plant them about 80cm

apart. You can plant closer but they will

very quickly fill in the gaps, because

raspberries sucker prolifically, hence the

tradition of growing them in narrow

hedges or along wire frames (this also

helps with bird netting). Unwanted

suckers that push their way into paths can

be removed or mown over.

BLACKBERRIES AND

THEIR HYBRIDS

While taking up less

space than a fruit tree,

these need at least 2m

to spread out. Canes

can grow on a sunny

fence or wall; against

a house, shed or

garage; along wires

strung between posts

or waratahs; against a

trellis; even up a pillar or

into a fruit tree if space is

lacking. Blackberriesm (left)

could also grow in a large container

such as a half-barrel, if well fed and watered.

I would always choose thornless types.

Try ‘Navaho’ or ‘Black Satin’. Loganberries

are a cross between blackberries and

raspberries. ‘Waimate’ is a thornless one.

Boysenberries are hybrids with large, tasty

fruits. ‘Thornless Jewel’ is a good variety.

All these have perennial root systems,

bearing biennial stems. In the first year,

canes grow long and in the second year

they bear flowers and fruit on small sidebranches

(laterals).

Fire rages, homes at risk

type to suit most niches

GOOSEBERRIES

These seem to do best for South

Island gardeners. If you live in a

warmer climate, try them against

an east-facing wall to avoid the

drying afternoon sun. If space is

short they can be trained against

walls, espaliered, or even grown

in containers as long as they

don’t dry out. Each plant needs

about 1-1.5m. As with their close

relations the currants, plenty

of compost or manure keeps

plants strong. A regular dressing

of wood ash or potash ensures

good fruiting, and a deep layer

of mulch keeps roots cool and

moist and helps avoid weeds

(gooseberry plants are prickly,

so the less weeding needed the

better).

BLUEBERRIES

Blueberries are quite particular

about their growing conditions,

but get those right and they

can do well across the country.

Part of the trick is choosing the

right variety, and this depends

on which part of the country

you are in. Some are deciduous

and need winter chilling – just

to be confusing, these are

called ‘northern’ types (from

the northern, cooler states of

America) while rabbiteye and

Loganberry

‘southern’ types, bred for warmer

climates, suit northern parts

of New Zealand better (from

Waikato northwards). Most

varieties also do best with a

different sort nearby to crosspollinate

them.

In their native habitat

blueberries grow on riverbanks

and on islands in peat bogs, with

plenty of sun, and constant access

to water without being actually

waterlogged. If you don’t happen

to have a peat bog with an island

in your backyard, try to keep the

soil moist but not soggy. If you

are gardening on sand or clay, the

best bet may be to grow blueberry

plants in a large tub or barrel

Gooseberry

filled with compost-rich, acid soil

and well mulched with woodchip

to keep the shallow roots from

drying out.

Blueberries don’t need a lot of

feeding; compost and mulch will

generally supply their needs. The

only pruning needed is in winter

to cut out some of the oldest,

twiggy growth to encourage new

branches to sprout.

BOYSENBERRY

Walter Knott named the

boysenberry after Rudolph

Boysen. Exactly how Rudolf

Boysen came across the

boysenberry remains a mystery,

but it is said to have been

OPEN 9am - 5.30pm

cultivated by cross-pollinating

the flowers of three other

berries: raspberry, loganberry

and blackberry. Propagate

boysenberries by cuttings, or by

layering. The fruit don’t have a

long shelf life, but it’s not difficult

to ensure they are consumed

quickly. Boysenberries enjoy

having some support, so give

them a trellis fence to grow along.

CRANBERRY

The cranberry is native to

North America and can be found

Tayberry

in sandy bogs in the United

States and Canada. These bogs

were created by glacial deposits.

German and Dutch settlers began

calling it ‘crane berry’, because the

flower looks like a crane’s head

and bill. Cranberries are very tart

raw, so they’re mostly used in

drinks and sauces, or sweetened

and dried. The cranberry looks

very similar to the Chilean guava

(or NZ cranberry), but they are

not the same. Cranberries like

sandy acidic soil with added peat.

LOGANBERRY

James Harvey Logan discovered

this berry in California, back

in 1880. It’s a cross between the

to produce hybrids such as

the tayberry, boysenberry and

‘Kotata’ blackberry.

TAYBERRY

The tayberry is yet another

hybrid berry, but one for which

we have the Scots to thank. A

cross of the ‘Aurora’ blackberry

and raspberry, it was named after

the Tay River in Scotland (where

it was bred). It is a good berry

for jam making. Give tayberries

a good mix of compost and

manure when planting. Continue

to mulch them with manure and

compost every year afterwards

and they’ll thank you with

luscious-tasting berries.

WHAT IS A BERRY?

Botanically speaking, a berry

is “a fleshy fruit without a stone

produced from a single flower

containing one ovary”. This means

grapes, tomatoes, avocados,

watermelon and bananas are

‘berries’, but blackberries and

raspberries are not – botanically,

they are ‘aggregate fruits’.

Commonly, however, a berry is any

small, edible fruit – usually small,

round, juicy and brightly coloured.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Easy care and colour with coreopsis

• By Henri Ham

COREOPSIS ARE a fantastic

plant to grow at this time of

year.

Planted now, they will thrive

in the summer sun – which,

fingers crossed, should arrive at

some point.

Their love of the sun makes

them super easy-care. Once

planted, unless there’s a

drought, they don’t need much

watering at all.

Three varieties which

produce, bright, yellow, sunny

flowers are early sunrise, rising

sun and sunburst.

Early sunrise has green leaves

with golden-yellow, semidouble

flowers. Rising sun

produces double golden-yellow

flowers with red eyes. Sunburst

also produces golden-yellow,

semi-double and double flowers.

All three make great borders

and lovely cut flowers.

Once you’ve got your plants,

be sure to grow them in the

sunniest spot in your garden

around 40-50cm apart.

Give them a light watering

and then let them do their

thing.

When they start flowering

BRIGHT: Early sunrise has golden-yellow, semi-double flowers.

be sure to deadhead (remove

the dead flower heads) to encourage

them to keep producing

flowers.

And in late summer you can

either leave them to do their

thing or cut them back by

one-third to get them flowering

again.

Not all varieties of coreopsis

are perennials, but many are,

so every two to three years in

early spring you can dig up the

plants, divide them and expand

your garden.

BOLD: Sunburst (top) produces double

and semi-double flowers. Rising

sun (above) has red eyes.

STUFFED APPLE

CRUMBLES

Ingredients

200g Gingernuts

4 Eve apples

100g Butter, preferably unsalted,

wooden rolling pin firmly over

the package to crush the biscuits

finely.

Alternatively crush them in a

food processor.

Cut a thick slice off the top of

the apple and set aside. These

will be the chapeaux — hats.

Using an apple corer or a

teaspoon, dig out the flesh from

the centre of the apple, leaving

a thin edge of apple around the

inside and base.

Discarding any core pieces,

chop the flesh finely.

Mix together the biscuit

crumbs, butter and chopped

apple to make a soft mix. Divide

the mix evenly among the apples,

packing it in firmly. Sit the hats

back on top.

Place the apples on a baking

paper-lined tray or in a shallowsided

ovenproof dish.

Bake for 15-20min or until the

apples have softened. Serve with

cream or hot custard.

Unimog tour into the West Coast wilderness

• By Mike Yardley

OCCUPYING THE northern

end of the West Coast, tap into

the heart of Buller with local tour

operator, Out West Tours.

They run a variety of off road

tours in superbly reconditioned

Unimogs, to the likes of the

Denniston Plateau, Warren

Stratford’s astonishing John

Deere Museum and deep into the

heartland.

Owned and operated by Mickey

and Doreen Ryan, their newest

offering is a six-hour tour, called

Johnny’s Journey, mixing an assortment

of coastal gems with the

wilderness.

Mickey Ryan is the quintessential

nuggety Coaster, who regaled

me with an unfurling spool of

vivid stories and unvarnished

insights, in disarmingly honest

fashion.

We admired lancewood trees

growing on the roadside, which as

Mickey explained, evolved so that

their leaves were protected against

the roaming moa. We popped

into Charleston, which during the

1860s gold rush, groaned with 80

hotels, quenching the thirst of the

hordes of gold-diggers labouring

along the Nile River.

New Zealand’s first toll bridge

was erected across the river by

Constant Bay, just one gem in a

necklace of stunning little bays

off the tourist trail. A paddlesteamer

formerly plied the river

and Constant Bay was once used

as a harbour, with ships squeezing

through a narrow gap between

the bay’s rocky headlands.

I marvelled over the quaint old

harbour master’s house at Joyce

Bay, and collected smooth quartz

stones, like readymade jewellery,

from the shoreline of Ladies Bay.

Then we headed inland into

Madmans Valley, where Mickey

led me to the most dramatic limestone

cliff gushing with a water

spout, which has been nicknamed

Cowpiddle Bluff.

Mickey recently built a magnificent

flight of wooden steps

to reach this striking formation.

Heading even deeper into

the heartland, we forded some

FORMATION: Cowpiddle Bluff is a limestone cliff with a gushing water spout. (Right) – Johnny Currie at one with nature in the

Awakari Valley.

NATURE:

Rock

formations.

streams and headed over a saddle

into the gob-smacking bucolic

splendour of Awakari Valley, a

sprawling rainforest valley neighbouring

Paparoa National Park.

The panoramic ridgeline lookout

is mouth-watering.

It’s the world’s biggest privately

owned rimu forest, under the

purview of a true living West

Coast legend, Johnny Currie.

He’s 76, as fit as a buck rat with

the mind of a steel trap, and a bit

like a cross between the Wizard of

Christchurch and Barry Crump.

He’s done it all. Farming, logging,

deerstalking, mining, caving

and tour guiding. He’s the bushman’s

bushman. And the 1800ha

of this valley is his realm. An immense

Garden of Eden previously

owned by a timber company,

which sold it to Johnny in 1980,

for $26,000.

Johnny’s family connection

with the Awakari Valley, reaches

back more than a century, and he

lives in a 50-year-old bush hut,

not dissimilar to what his forebears

sheltered in.

Before descending into the base

of the valley, Mickey pin-pointed

some of the scores of wild red

deer, free-roaming across the

terrain. Thirty years ago, Johnny

prohibited deer hunting from the

valley, dedicating his kingdom

of regenerating native forest and

tinkling gin-clear streams as a

wild deer reserve.

Johnny lives completely off the

grid. No power. No running water,

although though the pristine

Awakari River runs right outside

his tin hut.

I chatted to Johnny alongside

his cracking wood fireplace, about

his poacher-turned-game-keeper

conversion from clear-felling

logger to forest protector, the

surprises kept coming.

We strolled through radiant

green valley glades, to admire an

ancient Maori cave bordering the

river. Did you know that there

are Pancake Rocks beyond the

feted formations at Punakaiki?

I certainly didn’t. Johnny’s got a

towering chain of Pancake Rock

formations, rising up from the

Thursday October 19 2017

Fire rages, homes at risk

valley bed. He’s cleaned a lot of

them, so they shimmer like vast

ivory-coloured stacks of limestone.

The only way you can access the

Awakari Valley, meet Johnny and

marvel over his bewitching paradise

is with Out West Tours. It is

the sole operator and Mickey’s

team are gearing up for their first

summer sharing the Awakari with

the world.

It’s an irresistibly unique

celebration of Kiwi heritage and

culture, swathed in paradise.

Sampling Johnny’s world is like

savouring spectacular, largerthan-life

version of Country Calendar

in 3D. It’s an incomparable

encounter. www.outwest.co.nz

FAST FACTS

•After a day of riveting heartland discovery, I was lulled to

sleep by the rhythm of the ocean at Omau Settlers Lodge

Motel, Cape Foulwind. Swathed in lush, manicured grounds,

all rooms at this tranquil coastal roost boast a private

balcony with stirring ocean or mountain views. Accentuate

the blissfulness of the surrounds by enjoying a soak in the

outdoor hot tub, or relax by the fireplace in the shared lounge

area. You’ll enjoy free Wi-Fi and a complimentary continental

breakfast with homemade breads, preserves and jams,

cereal and fresh fruit. Accommodation is well appointed with

ensuite bathrooms, quality New Zealand timber furnishings,

in their lives is very fulfilling.

“It’s great when you meet people who

want to change and you know that you

have the ability to help them transform

their approach to being active. Seeing them

become independently active and continue

with a healthier lifestyle is amazing.”

During her degree, Abby completed

placements with Falls Prevention and the

Canterbury District Health Board. She

says that the opportunity to work in the

local community and build networks was

invaluable.

The placements are the best part of

the degree. You spend about 130 hours in

second and third year working and you

definitely feel ready to go out and get a job

when you finish. I use the majority of what

I learned in my degree every single day.”

Students explore foundation topics

in their first year and then focus on the

physical activity and health promotion

specialisation for the remainder of their

study.

The Bachelor of Applied Science also

offers specialisations in Sports Science and

Human Nutrition. Graduates are prepared

to enter a wide range of roles in the sports,

health and wellness sectors.

The degree offers so many opportunities,

which means you get to go out and do

different things throughout your career.”

The Bachelor of Applied Science is a

three year programme and is offered at Ara

in Christchurch. Part-time study options

are also available.

Wow: Five sixes off first over

• By Andrew King

SIR GARFIELD Sobers, Ravi

Shastri, Herschelle Gibbs, Yuvraj

Singh, Alex Hales, Jordan Clark

and very nearly Tom Taylor.

The Old Boys Collegians

opener was one maximum away

from joining the ranks the men

who have hit six sixes in an over,

after he belted five off the first six

balls.

Taylor’s side were set a competitive

258 to win against Riccarton

at Warren Park on Saturday,

when the 21-year-old decided to

channel his inner-Brendon Mc-

Cullum against opening left-arm

pace bowler Jack Turner.

“We needed to get the team off

to a good start. I get told to play

my natural game, and I am an

aggressive batsman and take it

to them to put them under pressure,”

Taylor said.

The first delivery sailed over

mid-wicket, the second was

flicked off his legs over fine leg,

the third was smashed over midon

before he let a leg-side delivery

go for the first dot ball.

“I just turned away when that

ball went by me, I was so pumped

up,” Taylor said.

The assault continued with

the fifth ball hitting a house on

Springs Rd after flying over cow

corner, and the sixth, which was

a bouncer, was dispatched over

square leg with a well-timed

hook shot.

The right-hander’s blistering

107 off 47 deliveries included 13

sixes and five fours giving OBC

the outright three-wicket win in

a rain-affected opening round

of the metro premier two-day

competition. Due to the weather,

the match was moved from Elmwood

Park to Warren Park.

During the barrage fellow

opener and captain, David Wakefield,

was telling him to pick his

shots and calm down.

“I was pretty pumped up and

I just wanted to keep going,”

Taylor said.

Turner had his head down

after the after the final delivery

and there were very few words

exchanged between them.

“You don’t have the right to say

much when getting hit for six

. . . I did say well played,” Turner

said.

Said Taylor: “We had a bit of

a chat, but I don’t know him

[Turner] all that well.”

Nineteen-year-old Turner is in

his first full season in the competition

and said it was a “big

learning experience”.

Taylor and Turner played

together in the Metro Black side

which lost on Sunday to Metro

Red.

GRAEME LITT has won a

gold and silver medal at the

Masters Track Cycling World

Championships in Los Angeles,

32 years after representing New

Zealand in roller skating.

Litt won the gold medal in the

men’s 65-69 years sprint event. In

the final he dropped the first race

to Frenchman Jean Louis Duble,

before recovering to storm home

in races two and three to claim

the rainbow jersey and gold

medal.

He was the top qualifier for

the sprint in 12.352sec and accounted

for current world record

holder Mark Rodamaker (United

States) 2-0 in the quarter-final

before beating Christian Meselet

from France in two straight rides

in the semi-final.

The silver medal was added to

the collection when Litt finished

second in the 500m time trial

with a time of 37.805sec.

He returned to Christchurch

from the United States yesterday

and said it was a dream come

true to win the gold medal.

Litt represented New

Zealand at the World Roller

Speed Skating Championships in

Colorado in 1985. He did

not medal there but held a

number of New Zealand speed

skating records for nearly 10

years.

In 2005 Litt purchased a road

bike and raced on the road as

record. He also finished second

in the 2km pursuit.

When selecting a building site weigh

up your lifestyle, family needs and

aspirations before signing up for any

section.

Those purchasing early on in the

development of a subdivision will

have more choice of section size and

orientation to the street and sun. As the

individual sites are sold, there may be

less availability though this need not

be a deterrent. With good design any

building site can be made to work.

Canterbury has experienced

considerable growth in recent years.

Sub-divisions have opened up and

been built on, with new developments

regularly coming on stream. Within

these, section sizes vary from around

400 square metres upwards to 5,000

square metres. Lifestyle blocks are also

scattered around the province.

The size of the house and amount of

yard desired will influence the feasibility

of some building sites as will sun and

wind direction, bearing in mind that a

house can be designed to capture the

sun’s free heat and allow for pleasant

outdoor areas to enjoy.

If the street side of the building site is

north/north west, incorporating fenced

or planted courtyards can offer private

places to entertain and bask in the sun.

Those wanting street presence

or keen on gardening may prefer a

corner section and while it might seem

they offer less privacy, with strategic

placement of fences quite the opposite

can be the case.

Weigh up your family’s needs in

terms of the outdoor areas too. Do you

want play areas for your children? Do

you have a need for off-street parking

for a number of vehicles and space for

a boat, caravan or motorhome, which

The pros and cons

of building sites

may need to be parked out of site of the

street? How much lawn or garden do

you want?

Start by identifying housing

developments that you like and could

see your family living in. Think also

about the convenience of shops and

other amenities, something that may or

may not be a concern.

Single out possible sections then

talk with a designer or builder. Most

building companies have a good

selection of standard plans as a starting

point and they will usually work with

a client to modify a plan or draw up

one that will work on a particular

building site, whilst also containing the

components the client is seeking within

their new home.

Before signing up for any building

site, check the Council land zoning

and recession plane requirements as

well as covenants for the sub-division.

These will show not only how far from

a boundary the house can be sited but

also roof height, permissible building

materials, and acceptable types of

fencing, as well as what can be on

view from the street like a clothes line,

caravan or motorhome. Conducting

your research first will save any

frustration or hassles later.

All sections are workable, it is simply

a matter of choosing one that matches

your specific needs.
