Bid to

stop

Canty

bank

closures

• By Sophie Cornish and Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

RESISTANCE IS building in a

bid to stop the closure of Westpac

branches in Canterbury.

The bank has plans to close its

New Brighton, Sydenham and

Lincoln branches and is currently

consulting with staff.

Westpac says internet and

mobile phone banking, and

changing populations because of

the earthquakes, is the reason for

the plan.

A ommunity group in New

Brighton is fighting to stop the

potential closure of its Westpac

branch.

And Coastal-Burwood Ward

city councillor David East is

planning to get the backing of

Development Christchurch Ltd

to try and stop the New Brighton

closure.

DCL is a city councilowned

company charged with

reinvigorating New Brighton,

with an emphasis on creating

business.

Said Cr East: “It is a huge

disappointment to me to see

another banking institution

potentially moving out of New

Brighton.

“We are talking with Westpac

to see if we can get this decision

put off for a while longer until

such time when we can see if the

hot salt water pools and the business

reinvigoration will impact on

the business sector on this side of

town.”

THE WORLD is a quickly

changing place, faster than

anytime in human existence.

All businesses are threatened

in some way by the internet and,

in 10 years time, we will live in a

very different age to now.

On page 1 today, more Westpac

banks are likely to close,

effectively a casualty of internet

banking.

The planned bank closures

are a blow to the communities

they service, particularly for the

elderly who obviously rely less

on the internet.

There are plans to fight the

New Brighton closure and time

will tell whether it is effective.

I suspect not, unless the bank’s

rent is paid for.

On a more positive note,

Lianne Dalziel (see page 4) looks

like she will move to streamline

rebuild organisations like

Development Christchurch and

Regenerate Christchurch.

That is a smart and overdue

move. There’s been far too much

bureaucracy in the rebuild.

She and new re-build minister,

Megan Woods, look like an

effective team.

This day in history saw the

complex of buildings was

architect B. W. Mountfort’s

a professional disaster soon

after arrival in New Zealand

when his first building, a

church in Lyttelton, had proved in a SAFE Air Bristol freighter

structurally unsound and had to crash at Russley golf course.

21, 1957, four people were killed John Paul II, (the first head of

the Catholic Church) visited

the city. On the same day a year

later, the Trans Alpine express

train, designed specifically

for the tourist trade, began its

daily run from Christchurch to

Greymouth. On November 25,

1940, the Holmwood, en route

ARTWORK FOR HOTEL

THree vibrant artworks have been

short-listed to brighten the wall

of the Ibis Hotel on Hereford St

– and you can decide what one is

the winner. The works have been

designed by local artists based on

ideas put forward by the public.

One shows flora and fauna, another

inspires people to take time to

breathe, while the third outlines the

rebuilding of the city. The design

that attracts the most support on

the city council’s Facebook page will

be chosen on Tuesday.

“ IT’S A RELAXED

“No lawns to mow or leaves to pick up.”

Joyce and Lloyd have a beautiful garden and

have seen in a month outside their last home.

He also really enjoys not having the burden of

continuous maintenance.

They’ve been enjoying their villa at their

Edmond St or Edmonds St?

Council sure to rise on

missing ‘s’ in street name

• By Bridget Rutherford

CONCERNS WERE sure to rise

over the misspelling of a street

named after the man behind a

Kiwi kitchen icon.

The family of Thomas John

Edmonds, who founded the

Edmonds Sure to Rise baking

powder, has asked the

city council to change

Edmond St to Edmonds

St in Linwood.

The street was named

after T J Edmonds, but

somehow between 1886-

1893, the letter ‘s’ had

been removed.

To correct the name,

the city council has to

consult with the street’s

residents, because their

address would have to change.

The change would need to be

supported by at least 85 per cent

of them.

John Edmonds said he had

always presumed Edmond St was

named after his great-grandfather,

because it was next to where

the former factory was.

“I’d always been a bit disappointed

Edmond St seemed to be

misnamed.”

He said T J Edmonds was

inducted into the New Zealand

Business Hall of Fame in July,

which prompted him to get in

touch with the city council about

it.

“I think it is important that

they show that courtesy and

respect.”

Edmond St runs off Aldwins

Rd and sits next to the Edmonds

Factory Gardens.

T J Edmonds had the gardens

created around his factory, which

was built in 1923.

Although the iconic factory

was controversially

demolished in 1990,

it still appears on the

cover of the Edmonds

Cookery Book with the

iconic sunray motif

on it.

T J Edmonds was a

well-known philanthropist.

He built the Edmonds

Band Rotunda

in 1929.

He also partly, or fully funded,

several other buildings including

Kilmore St’s demolished Repertory

Theatre, the Clock Tower

on Oxford Tce, and the former

Theosophical Society building on

Cambridge Tce.

John Edmonds said the family

was “delighted” the city council

had committed to restoring

the earthquake-damaged band

rotunda.

Consultation on whether to

change the street name is expected

to be done early next year.

The Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board would

then need to approve the change.

Final chance to remember Lancaster Park

GOT A photo of the U2 concert

at Lancaster Park back in 1989?

Or of you and your mates

grass embankments?

The city council and Vbase

want people to share their photos

or illustrations of Lancaster Park

before it is demolished. The images

could feature on signage to

be put up around the site before,

and during, the demolition.

Vbase general manager Darren

Burden said the stadium had

hosted a number of concerts and

sports events.

“We’re sure plenty of these

magic moments will have been

caught on camera over the years,

or maybe people might like to

put pen to paper as a way of

remembering a special moment

they had at the stadium.”

All entries must be received by

December 22 and can be made

on the city council’s website.

Mr Burden said the demolition

would take about a year, beginning

in March. The signage was

hoped to be installed by mid-

February.

A number of items have been

salvaged from the stadium, such

as seats and memorabilia. So far,

8300 seats have been re-homed

across the country.

The reopening of sports fields at

Carlton Mill has been delayed

until March due to poor weather.

The city council has been relevelling

the earthquake-damaged

ground and natural grass fields

were being built with irrigation

and drainage. It was meant to

be finished by now, but due to

“significant weather events”, the

opening has been pushed out to

March 14. Meanwhile, Sydenham

Park will be complete by February

12. Originally it was meant to be

finished before the end of the year.

UNCERTAIN FUTURE: The Westpac bank in New Brighton.

Bid to stop bank closures

•From page 1

However, Westpac spokewoman

Heather Shiels said: “Our

customers are increasingly using

technology for their banking

needs, which is resulting in fewer

branch transactions.”

Community group New

Brighton Project has set up a

facebook campaign to stop the

closure.

Ms Shiels said online transactions

have increased by 66 per

cent in five years while customers

using mobile-only devices have

increased from 24 to 39 per cent

in the last two years.

The earthquakes have also

played a role in the potential

closures, said Ms Shiels.

“Since the 2010 and 2011

earthquakes the region has

experienced significant shifts in

population, which have impacted

where people are living, working

and banking.”

First Union, which represents

bank staff, said it was “odd” for

the earthquakes to be used as a

reason for a branch to close particularly

in Lincoln.

The stats quite clearly demonstrate

the population is growing

. . . we have been puzzled by it,”

southern region secretary Paul

Watson.

Lincoln’s population is projected

to grow to 9190 by 2025.

ASB recently set up a branch in

Lincoln.

First Union will meet with Westpac’s

senior officials and managers

in Auckland on Monday to discuss

the planned closures.

Westpac is looking to transfer

affected staff to other branches.

The bank is also opening a new

central city branch in March.

Merge organisations – Dalziel

• By Bridget Rutherford

DRAFT: Regenerate Christchurch is tasked with coming up

with a landscaping plan for Cathedral Square.

MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel

yesterday signalled more

shake-ups in the Christchurch

rebuild could be on the horizon.

Ms Dalziel said she wanted

to see Regenerate Christchurch

and Development Christchurch

Ltd merged within the next two

years.

It comes a day after new Minster

for Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Megan Woods

scrapped the preferred contractor

for the Metro Sport Facility

due to a $75 million budget blow

out, which had the backing of

Ms Dalziel.

“I want to see Regenerate

Christchurch and Development

Christchurch merged. I want

the focus of Otakaro to be the

delivery of the major anchor

projects that they have been

given control of, just get

on and do that,” she told

Newstalk ZB yesterday.

Regenerate Christchurch’s

main tasks are

coming up with plans

for the residential red

zone, Cathedral Square

as well as other pockets

in the city.

DCL deals with some of the

city council’s major capital projects,

such as revitalising New

Brighton, and provides a single

point of entry for investors and

developers.

Ms Dalziel (left) said

she wanted to speak to the

Government about merging

the two.

“If we combine their

resources, I think the city

would get a better outcome

and more quickly. I

think that if it turned itself into

more of a regeneration authority

or an urban development

authority, that would enable it

to utilise the legislation that it’s

been given by central Government.”

Ms Dalziel said she signalled

the move during her mayoral

campaign last year.

She said it was always

assumed the two would

merge after five years in

2021, but she wanted it done

sooner. It would require a

Government legislation change,

she said.

rose petals over the driveway of

the property as a tribute to his

friend.

asked if a mural could be painted

‘Insulting’ cartoons debated in court

• By Sam Hurley

TWO controversial newspaper

cartoons are “certainly insulting”

but whether the images breached

the Human Rights Act has

become a matter of legal debate.

Labour MP Louisa Wall is appealing

a Human Rights Tribunal

decision in the High Court at

Auckland this week which found

two Fairfax Media cartoons did

not promote racial disharmony

against Maori and Pacifika.

The cartoons by award-winner

Al Nisbet were published in

The Press on May 30, 2013, and

Marlborough Express the previous

day.

The images portrayed the

issue of the food in schools programme,

“a measure intended to

mitigate some of the worst consequences

of child poverty”, the

Human Rights Tribunal decision

from May reads.

The tribunal concluded that

although the cartoons were

insulting, they were not likely

to “excite hostility against or to

bring into contempt Maori and

Pacifika on the ground of their

colour, race, or ethnic or national

origins”.

Ms Wall took exception to the

images and claimed the cartoons

breached the Human Rights Act

by promoting racial disharmony.

Fairfax argues its cartoons

were consistent with the Bill of

Rights, which affords every New

Zealander the right to freedom

of expression, including the freedom

to seek, receive, and impart

information and opinions of any

kind in any form.

Justice Matthew Muir said at

an initial hearing on November

1 that he wanted a panel to

preside over the case, after

expressing “some reservations”

about whether he held superior

qualifications to the members of

the Human Rights Tribunal.

He said he was “very, very

wary” and given the “huge public

implications” and interest of

what is a test case.

Justice Muir said the panel was

tasked with “looking afresh” at

the question of whether there

is a breach of section 61 of the

Human Rights Act. Section 61

outlines the unlawfulness for any

person to publish or distribute

material that is threatening,

abusive, or insulting and likely to

excite hostility against or bring

into contempt any group of persons

in, or who may be coming

to New Zealand, on the grounds

of the colour, race, or ethnicity

or national origins.

However, the legislation

also reads that it shall not be a

breach of the law if a newspaper,

magazine, or broadcast report

accurately conveys the intention

of the person who published or

distributed the matter or broadcast

or used the words.

“No-one is contending that the

advertisements were not insulting,

we certainly all regard them

as insulting,” Justice Muir said.

“Are there particularly feebleminded

people or bigoted people

out there that would find these

[cartoons] incite hostility and

contempt?”

Ms Wall’s counsel Prue Kapua

said the issue was not about the

cartoonist, but the depiction of

Maori and Pacifika as “welfare

bludgers and negligent parents”

who spent their money on gambling

and smokes.

However, Justice Muir said

that the tribunal’s decision

showed New Zealand was a

society that encouraged a free

market of ideas in a socially

liberal and tolerant country.

Mr Milner said he thought

more retirees were getting into

cycling because it was good to

stay healthy. Once the group got

to Tai Tapu they stopped for a

coffee and a chat, he said.

Jeff Greenep, 80, agreed. He

cycles about four times a week.

He said he has been doing it

since he was a kid.

Cycling was the second most

popular activity for those aged 16

and over. The most popular was

walking, at 67 per cent.

That was followed by cycling

with 36 per cent and swimming

at 33 per cent.

Twenty-four per cent did

equipment-based exercise, such

as going to the gym, while 20 per

cent went running.

Cricket and hunting rounded

out the top 20, with about six per

cent taking part in both.

For five to 10-year-olds who

were surveyed, swimming was

the most popular activity at 90

per cent, followed by biking,

athletics, gymnastics and cross

country.

In the 11-14 and 15-18 age

brackets, running took top spot,

followed by swimming, athletics,

basketball and biking.

active, major sports report shows

The draft Spaces and Places

Report was prepared by Sport

Canterbury to outline the current

and planned sporting facilities

following the September 2010

and February 2011 earthquakes.

As part of the report, it looked

at how each code was impacted

following the quakes.

Sports such as tennis, athletics,

bowls, golf, squash, cricket and

surf life saving had seen a decline

in memberships.

Meanwhile, badminton,

football, hockey, netball, rowing,

rugby, league, swimming, touch

and waterpolo had gone the other

way.

Certain sports with less

facilities were analysed and

interviewed to see what

developments were under way

and how they had been impacted

following the quakes.

Swimming appeared to be the

worst hit because facilities such

as QE II and Centennial Pool,

were damaged or destroyed after

the quakes.

In 2010 the swimming

membership was 1565. That

dropped to 387 in 2011.

In 2016 there were 1585

registered swimmers, back up to

pre-quake levels, although that

only included those who were

members, not people who went

for leisurely swims.

Planning and construction of

aquatic facilities were under way,

such as Eastern Recreation and

Aquatic Facility and the South

West Leisure Centre in Hornby.

However, the Metro Sport

Facility’s future is unclear,

after new Minister for Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Megan Woods on Tuesday

announced the Government

would scrap the preferred

contractor to get it back on track.

It came after a “thorough

review” found the budget had

blown out by $75 million. A

review would be done to see what

the options were, which could

include combining it with the

proposed multi-use arena.

The report said bowls had also

taken a hit.

The sport had 3206 members

last year – 70 per cent of the

number it had in 2010.

Rowing had grown to 987

stable, while tennis had steadily

lack of playing space, the report

said, and yachting and BMX had

remained relatively stable.

Meanwhile, football

registrations had steadily

increased over the past decade.

Last year, there were 13,855.

Currently, Mainland Football’s

base is at ASB English Park. But

there have been discussions about

moving it to the soon to be built

Nga Puna Wai.

A gap was identified for

speed skating facilities. The

current Alpine Ice Sports and

Entertainment Centre does not

have a full size rink so it could

not hold national championships.

Hockey had a membership

of 4507 last year. But the report

said it was limited by turf

availability.

Currently, teams are able to

play at Nunweek and Marist

Parks, as well as Waimakariri

Hockey Turf in Rangiora.

Nga Puna Wai will have two

year.

It joined the the multi-use

Fire rages, homes at risk

Ballantynes survivors uncanny

The 70th-anniversary

of the Ballantynes fire

was last weekend.

Reporter Bridget

Rutherford speaks

to two survivors who

have had an uncanny

reunion

LOIS WHEELER and Marion

Hooykaas have been going to

card making classes together for

a decade near their Parklands

homes.

But it took another eight years

for the friends to discover they

shared another thing in common

– both had escaped New

Zealand’s worst fire tragedy.

Forty-one people perished.

Mrs Hooykaas said it was unbelievable

she and Mrs Wheeler

took so long to click.

“It was really because being

together for so long and only

finding out then, it was strange.”

Mrs Hooykaas said she

had been at class discussing a

controversial book about the

Ballantynes fire written by

Steven Eldred-Grigg, when Mrs

Wheeler piped up and said she

was in the fire too.

“She’d been sitting next to me

for so long.”

Mrs Wheeler, who was 22 at

the time, was working as a shorthand

typist, while Mrs Hooykaas

was a 17-year-old apprentice

tailoress. Many of their friends

and colleagues died.

Mrs Wheeler, now 92, said

every year, she can recall down to

SURVIVORS: Lois Wheeler, 92, and Marion Hooykaas, 87, both escaped the Ballantynes fire on

November 18, 1947, although they did not meet until years later. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

the minute what happened that

fateful November 18, 1947, day.

At 3pm she was having afternoon

tea with a friend who

worked in the china department.

Twenty minutes later, they both

went back to work. Mrs Wheeler

never saw her friend again.

She said staff did not know

the danger they were in when a

fire broke out in the cellar of one

of the store’s eight central city

buildings at about 3.30pm.

“Ballantynes was Ballantynes,

and nothing could ever happen

to Ballantynes.”

She said initially, her boss had

been instructed to tell staff to

keep working.

But they later evacuated onto

Lichfield St, only to go back

into the building three times to

collect typewriters and filing

cabinets.

“We were like sheep. We were

only doing it because our boss

was doing it.”

The last time she went upstairs,

the ceiling started coming down

and they ran down the stairs to

safety, she said.

The whole thing [building]

combusted and was going up in

flames and the roof was gone.

Because I got out, I thought everybody

else had.”

Mrs Hooykaas said when the

fire started, they were told to

evacuate and take their scissors.

Mrs Hooykaas said they must

have been some of the last to get

out.

Both went back to work at Ballantynes

shortly after the tragedy

in temporary facilities nearby.

Mrs Wheeler stayed for a few

years before moving to Hay’s

for more money. Mrs Hooykaas

stayed until she was 23, when she

got engaged.

Ballantynes, the city council and

Fire Service were criticised for the

disaster, during a Royal Commission

inquiry into the blaze.

But neither Mrs Wheeler or

Mrs Hooykaas feel any anger.

They still shop at Ballantynes.

“When I hear a siren the hair

goes up on the back of my neck.

It is as though it’s back to the

Ballantynes fire,” Mrs Wheeler

said.

The cause of the fire was

never determined. The Royal

Commission recommended

changes to fire prevention and

firefighting, including evacuation

drills and the installation of fire

alarms.

meeting decades after blaze

Typewriters, adding machines

and company records were put in

a safe strongroom by some of the

people killed.

The inquiry found they were

probably following orders which

wasted “vital time” in escaping

the inferno.

There was no evacuation plan.

Evacuation orders were made by

individual department heads.

There was even evidence of

some staff returning from their

afternoon tea being sent back to

work upstairs after smoke had

been seen.

“Thousands of horror-stricken

spectators saw two [other] girls

leap from a third-floor window

and crash on a ladder and

veranda,” the Press Association

reported at the time.

“From there, unconscious, they

were dragged by firemen. Their

condition in hospital is satisfactory.”

At least 680 people were in

Ballantynes at the time of the

fire – 430 staff and 250

customers.

Recalls Mrs Hooykaas: “Our

boss came in and he said that he

was getting us out. “One of the

old tailors stood at the door, held

the door open and he said: ‘Take

your scissors because you can’t

replace them’.”

It was after the war and it was

hard to get scissors.

“He said: ‘Just pick up your

scissors and go’. We did. We took

our pay too – it was in our bags. I

had a blazer; I left that.

“We were quite calm when we

went out of the room, but when

we got down to the stairs to the

cafeteria that’s when you kept

saying: ‘Hurry up’; they were

walking so slowly, but it was

dark.”

Earlier they had stood at the

windows and waved in reply to

a man waving from across the

street. He later told them that the

roof had collapsed soon after.

Ballantynes comprised

eight buildings covering about

4000 sq m between Colombo,

Cashel and Lichfield Sts.

Some of the buildings and

their basements were connected

INFERNO:

by unauthorised openings. Fire

protections were inadequate.

Stairwells and lift shafts acted

like chimneys, drawing hot gases

into the upper areas, which rose

to three levels above the ground

floor.

Although the cause of the fire

was never established, it is known

to have started in a basement at

around 3.30pm. A female employee

had noticed smoke. There

was a delay in calling firefighters,

who arrived at 3.47pm; they were

poorly equipped for the coming

conflagration.

Just before 4pm, the fire erupted

in a flashover of hot gases. At

4.10pm Kenneth Ballantyne, a

joint managing director, was the

last person to escape. He climbed

out a widow and scrambled down

a ladder.

Window panes broke, flames

shot out and a cloud of black

smoke rose high above the

buildings. Some 200 firefighters

battled the blaze, using 20 fire

engines.

In a 1997 television

documentary, Scorched

Memories, witnesses told of the

heartache of seeing people at the

windows.

“I spotted my father in the

people at the window,” said Alf

Brown. “I whistled out to him but

couldn’t get his attention.”

At a roll call in the evening at

the city’s King Edward Barracks

to work out who was still missing,

Mr Brown saw a Ballantynes

manager.

“He pointed at me and said

‘That’s Alec Brown’s son’. That’s

when I knew that Dad was dead.”

Wedding bells beckon for fourth time

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Bridget Rutherford

LEANNE Crawford has had to

put off her wedding three times

because of a crippling illness.

But she will finally marry her

partner of more than eight years,

Craig Corboy, next week in a

wedding almost completely organised

by the Canterbury Bowel

and Liver Trust.

Ms Crawford has Crohn’s

disease and endometriosis. She

began feeling ill in 2014.

For months she could barely

walk, lost 30kg and was constantly

sick. She had to stop

working and postponed her

wedding three times because she

kept having to go to hospital.

It took almost two years for a

diagnosis, and tools donated by

the trust helped doctors find a

treatment – so she wanted to give

back when she felt better.

In March she walked in The

Star City2Surf 14km event with

about 40 others to raise more

than $4300 for the trust.

As a result, the trust wanted

to help her by organising her

wedding.

Ms Crawford said she and Mr

Corboy will marry next Saturday

in their Rangiora garden where

he proposed. The reception will

be held at West Eyreton Hall.

Her family will arrive from the

United Kingdom on Saturday.

Bowel and Liver Trust general

manager Margaret Fitzgerald

had helped organise the wedding

and would prepare food for it as

well, Ms Crawford said.

Kim Chan Events donated

flowers, would set up the hall

and hired the equipment for free,

while Christchurch Football

Club had given the plates and

cutlery for the reception.

Shirley Worthington and John

Brown were travelling from

Timaru to do the catering, while

Sharon Richards was icing the

wedding cake.

TRIUMPH: Leanne

Crawford and Craig

Corboy took part in

The Star City2Surf

earlier this year to

raise money for the

Canterbury Bowel

and Liver Trust,

and now the trust

has organised their

wedding.

Because Ms Crawford had

lost so much weight, she said

Ms Fitzgerald, along with Karen

Farthing had taken in her dress.

Wedding Professionals, Lisa

Marie Parable Photography,

Boogie Beats and celebrant Jane

Godfrey had stuck with the

couple even after they had to

postpone several times, she said.

Entire Electrical had donated

money and family and friends

had helped with other aspects.

Ms Crawford said she never

expected so many people to

donate and offer to help get her

up the aisle.

“We are blown away with

the generosity especially from

people we have never met, we

just want to say a huge thank you

to everyone from the bottom off

our heart, we couldn’t have done

it with out you all.”

Ms Crawford said she will take

part in the City2Surf again on

March 18 to raise more money

for the trust, and encouraged

others to sign up.

Although she cannot eat solid

food, Ms Crawford said she was

feeling better and walks about

7km every day.

“My biggest support is my

lovely husband-to-be and I can’t

wait to be his wife.”

The Star City2Surf will take

place on March 18. Early bird

entries will be available from

Compostable

food packaging

at city events

• By Bridget Rutherford

THIRTY Christchurch events are

likely to use compostable food

packaging after a successful trial

saw more than 12 tonnes diverted

from landfill earlier this year.

The city council wants to run

Composting Food Packaging at

Events Trial 2.0 at 12 of its major

events over the next 18 months.

They would join 21 other privately-run

events.

For the second trial to go ahead

the city council is seeking $29,553

from the Canterbury waste joint

committee at its meeting tomorrow.

The funding would be used to

operate the initiative at the city

council-run events, which includes

waste sorters who are on site to

separate the compostable packaging

from other rubbish.

The second trial would include

the city council’s upcoming New

Year’s Eve event, Kite Day, Sparks,

Christchurch Lantern Festival,

KidsFest Lantern Parade, Botanic

D’lights, Heritage Week, Guy

Fawkes, and New Year’s Eve

2018.

Kite Day 2019, Sparks 2019 and

Christchurch Lantern Festival 2019

would also be included.

Quake theory criticised

NEW ZEALAND earthquake

scientists have been critical of a

theory from two United States’

scientists that the frequency

of earthquakes is linked to a

slowing in Earth’s rotation, one

saying “I tend to think of them

in the context of [Moon Man]

Ken Ring”.

Last month, Roger Bilham,

from the University of

Colorado at Boulder,

and Rebecca Bendick,

from the University of

Montana, presented a paper at

a conference that posited that

a year with a high number of

earthquakes around the world

coincided with a slowing in the

rotation of the Earth.

“A striking example is that

since 1900 more than 80 per

cent of all earthquakes on

the eastern Caribbean plate

boundary have occurred five

years following a maximum

deceleration (including the 2010

Haiti earthquake).”

The paper concludes that

2017 marks six years since

deceleration began in 2011,

“suggesting that the world

has now entered a period

of enhanced global seismic

productivity with a duration of

DESTRUCTION: Two United States’ scientists say the

frequency of earthquakes is linked to a slowing of the

Earth’s rotation. (Right) – New Zealand author Ken Ring who

writes about moon phases and the weather.

at least five years.”

GNS Science have commented

that the paper has not been

peer-reviewed and has no detail

to examine, while Dr Virginia

Toy from the Department of

Geology at the University of

Otago says correlations are

often made between natural

events and other phenomena.

“Some of these yield

statistically defendable

correlations; others don’t,” she

said.

“I tend to think of them in

the context of Ken Ring . . . the

man who writes about apparent

statistical correlations between

the phase of the moon and the

weather.

“[The Americans’ paper]

sounds like we will get a jump

from six to 20 large earthquakes

per year. I don’t think this is

likely.”

Dr Tim Stahl, a lecturer

in tectonic geology from

Canterbury University, says it is

difficult to judge the scientific

merit of the claims being made

until additional testing is

carried out by other research

groups.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Higher fines fail to deter litter bugs

• By Bridget Rutherford

A NEW graduated scale to fine

people for littering has failed to

deter people from doing it.

The city council changed the

rules in June last year by introducing

a new graduated scale

for fines, depending on the type

and amount of rubbish dumped.

In the past, the maximum fine

was $100. That increased to $400

under the new rules.

But figures released under the

Local Government and Official

Information Act show of the 389

litter and roadside litter complaints

the city council received

since the rule changes, just two

fines were issued.

Both of those were $200 fines.

A city council spokeswoman

said the number of complaints

remained consistent with previous

years.

“One of the constraints of the

Litter Act is that the council

officer must personally witness

the offence and/or be able to

identify the person committing

the offence to be able to issue an

infringement notice,” she said.

Therefore, the level of

infringements issued is low in

comparison to the number of

complaints.”

The new system had five tiers.

Less than 1-litre of rubbish

dropped would be a $100 fine,

between one to 20-litres was

a $200 fine, 20-120-litres was

$300, while more than 120-litres

or hazardous, offensive or commercial

material was $400.

City council head of regulatory

compliance Tracey Weston

said the maximum fine of $400

was intended to be a greater

deterrent.

She said nearly all the complaints

were received after the

litter had been found.

“This means that there is little,

if any, evidence of the identity

of the person responsible for the

dumping,” she said.

There is little the council can

do to increase the number of

fines issued due to the evidential

challenges around establishing

the identity of the offender.”

Ms Weston said the city

DUMPED:

Higher fines

have failed to

deter people

from dumping

their rubbish in

public places,

like here in

South Brighton

Domain. ​

council spent about $120,000 in

the last financial year removing

rubbish that had been dumped.

The residential red zone had

been a hot spot for dumping

after the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

The city council had not issued

any infringement notices

in the years leading up to the

rule changes due to a “change in

personnel.”

Online services

at council in

for overhaul

• By Bridget Rutherford

RESIDENTS WILL soon be able

to book, apply, request and pay for

more city council services online as

part of a major system overhaul.

The city council is developing

a new system called My Council,

which would be part of its website.

It will take three years to

complete, and is currently in the

first phase.

City council citizens and

community general manager Mary

Richardson said My Council was

programme of work designed to

give residents choice for the services

it provided.

The digitalisation of its services

was at the core of the programme,

she said.

“This means citizens will have

more visibility over the things that

matter to them, whether it’s rates,

rubbish, dog registration, building

consents, consultation or something

else.

“We want to increase self-service

so people can easily book, apply,

request and pay for our services

online anywhere and at any time.

We also want to create new and

innovative ways for citizens to

engage with us,’’ she said.

Sports facility cost creates

a ‘window of opportunity’

WHEN THE new minister,

Hon Megan Woods, contacted

me about the true cost of

proceeding with the early

contractor involvement process

for our long-awaited Metro

Sports Facility, I already knew

that they were going to be

receiving advice along the lines

that they did. And that was $75

million over budget.

I was not at all surprised when

the incoming Government said

‘enough is enough’. I would

too if it were our decision as a

council.

The cost sharing agreement

caps the city’s contribution to

the Metro Sports Facility at $147

million, which is still an eye

watering sum of money.

When the minister said that

it was going to take a few short

months for a build contract to

go to tender, I was really pleased.

For me, this has created a

‘window of opportunity’, where

we as a city can look at what

we really need, and to get the

different sporting codes together

to double-check that what was

driving decisions five years ago

is still relevant today.

No-one will be surprised by

my attitude to this, as I have

always said that a flaw in the

blueprint approach was the

lack of a feedback loop once the

blueprint was announced. It was

as if it was set in stone and yet,

as I said, what may have been

the case five-years ago, may not

be now.

This window of opportunity

will give the city that feedback

loop we have needed and enable

us to think about the different

elements of the Metro Sports

Facility and the multi-use arena,

as well as some of our existing

facilities.

What is the potential, for

example, at the Horncastle

Arena when we build what

would be the largest covered

arena in the country?

Lianne Dalziel

Five years later, should we

revisit some of the co-location

arguments with the relevant

sporting codes at the table?

We have been given this

moment in time where

everything can be examined

without further delays.

What excites me is the

possibility that we could end up

speeding things up and reducing

overall costs, while providing

the city with the sporting and

event infrastructure it needs –

now and for future generations.

That’s the win-win I will be

looking for.

Dalziel a question, email

Fire rages, homes at at risk

Woods determined to fix $75m blowout

LIKE MOST Cantabrians, I’m

very keen to see faster progress

in our central city. The sight

of big vacant lots where major

new facilities are meant to have

been built by now simply isn’t

good enough. It’s something I’m

determined to fix.

That’s why one of the very

first pieces of work I’ve started

as a new minister has been a

thorough line-by-line review

of the Anchor Projects. I want

to ensure these projects can be

delivered faster, with timelines

we can trust, in a manner we can

afford. This review has already

thrown up some real issues.

The biggest of these was the

discovery of a $75 million budget

blowout on the Metro Sports

Facility – a facility that is already

years behind schedule. As an

incoming minister, finding out

the previous Government knew

about this blowout since July was

very disappointing.

I know most Cantabrians will

agree that when a budget blows

out by $75 million, you can’t

keep writing blank cheques with

taxpayers’ money, especially

when the project keeps being

delayed. It’s worth remembering,

under the last Government’s

timeline, the facility was meant

to open in the first part of last

year – yet all we have at the moment

is another big empty space

in our central city.

Any suggestion we could ignore

this blowout is nonsense. If

we had continued on the previous

Government’s path, I would

have had to go back to Cabinet

and ask for taxpayers to keep

reaching into their pockets.

That’s why the decision was

made to cancel the early contractor

involvement process, and

direct Ōtākaro to finish the design

work themselves, then go to

market to complete the construction

of the building. This will

give us an option to deliver the

project within the budget set by

the previous Government.

I’ve also asked officials to use

that time to conduct an urgent

review of the plans for the

facility. We need to check if the

assumptions made about this

project in 2012 still hold up five

years later, or if there might be

better, quicker ways to deliver

the sporting facilities that Canterbury

needs.

After years of delays, this new

Government’s priority is getting

things happening – breaking

down the roadblocks and getting

the projects we need back on

track.

Regeneration

Heather Andersen and

Mitch MacDonald (right)

have been labelled the

villains of My Kitchen Rules

New Zealand but The Star

revealed they are not so

“awful” after all

Vanessa Henry – I got to

meet them both at an event last

week.

They were really down to

earth, funny and pretty genuine

sort of people. Funny thing is on

the show they actually give fair

scores backed up with genuine

reasons for the scores they give.

Pretty noticeable that not all of

the teams do this.

David Lindsay – Easy

answer . . . don’t put yourselves

on reality TV, it’s happened to

those before you and it will keep

happening, no sympathy.

Nic Davies – I like them.

Bugger to hear what was said to

them but if you go in a show like

that you have to expect this.

Kim Johanson – If that’s

how you portray yourself on TV,

expect backlash.

Only 55 percent of fines

issued to freedom campers

were paid, according to city

council staff

Krysha Wells – That’s

because they are going (and)

they do not care, maybe it is time

to stop them at the airport on the

way out?

Candice Johnson –

Passport info should be taken,

and should be flagged if they

try and leave without paying.

Tourists are having a laugh at

how soft NZ is.

Pete Hustwick – It’s all

really quite simple.

You clamp them. And when

the fine is paid in full in cash,

then they can get under way

again. It would only take a few

for the word to get around.

We are way too nice in this

country.

Tiffany Cavanaugh – We

can’t leave the country without

paying our fines, tourists

shouldn’t be able to either.

Police say the seizure of

49kg of methamphetamine

with a street value of $50

million was the largest bust

in the South Island

Mary Baycroft – Great work

Christchurch police. Keep that

off our streets.

Kim Brown – Good job. I

hate this drug with a passion and

I personally love the fact that it

won’t be hitting our streets. And

hope the mongrels that tried

to import it into our beautiful

country get sent down for a very

long time.

Kevin Garty – Excellent work

police. Now please court system,

put these guys away for a very

long time and go after every asset

they have.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Bid to reunite family with soldier’s WW1 relic

• By Kurt Bayer

AN ENGLISHMAN who

uncovered a Cantabrian’s

battlefield identification note

rolled inside a World War I

bullet casing is attempting to

reunite the rare artefact with the

old soldier’s descendants.

David Murray was holidaying

near Ypres, Belgium, about 40

years ago when he bought a box

of mixed WW1 memorabilia.

It included a German cartridge

case and bullet that has sat in a

drawer at his Manchester home

for decades.

But last year, he took a closer

look at the bullet case and found

a piece of paper coiled inside it.

After several hours, with the

aid of medical tweezers, he

managed to extract the note

which read: ‘Gunner E. A.

Kermode - Headquarters Staff

N.Z.F.A. 7/2058 France’.

Mr Murray understands that

even with the issue of ‘dog tags’,

many soldiers put personal

details inside things like

cartridge cases for identification

purposes if they were killed.

Now, he wants to trace gunner

Kermode’s descendants to return

the item to its rightful home.

“His grandsons could still

be alive and well and, if I was

his grandson, then I’d be very

pleased to get that,” Mr Murray

said.

Edward Arthur Kermode

was born at Isle of Man in the

Irish Sea in 1895. His mother,

a Mrs Goulding, came from

the Devonshire market town of

Honiton.

At the outbreak of war in 1914,

gunner Kermode was working as

an engineer in Christchurch.

A year later, the 20-year-old

bachelor, with the stature of a

jockey, standing at 160cm and

weighing just 55kg, enlisted.

He left with the New Zealand

Field Artillery and served in

Egypt and France.

Having survived the war, he

returned to Christchurch and

was discharged in 1919, the war

War ID: Edward

Arthur Kermode

survived World

War 1 and now

an Englishman

who found a

relic of his from

the war is trying

to trace his

descendants.

records show.

Mr Murray says he’d happily

send the bullet casing and note

to New Zealand if the rightful

owners came forward.

“If it was in an antiques shop,

it’d probably be a couple of

quid,” he told the NZ Herald.

“But I’ve got quite a strong

sense of social and family history

and I hate it when people throw

things away that are a piece of

personal history. It’d be better

than just lying in a drawer here.”

The Herald contacted Alastair

Kermode who lives at Lincoln.

Last year, he visited Ypres and

was interested in whether any

of his forefathers fought on the

Western Front.

He doubted any family links

to the gunner Kermode he

saw listed on the battlefield

memorials.

But, when talking to

the Herald, he wondered whether

Edward Arthur Kermode was

related to him, given that his

family history information says

they also emigrated from the Isle

of Man.

“It’s possible. My grandfather,

with I think 13 kids in the

family, all came out here from

Isle of Man,” Kermode said.

He wanted to ask other

relatives and hunt for “concrete

evidence” of a link to the

WW1 veteran, but was interested

in talking further with Mr

Murray.

•Anyone with information

or suspected family links to

Edward Arthur Kermode can

Fire rages, homes at risk

Mental as Anything for Selwyn Sounds

Audience

can expect

friendship and

silliness from

Aussie rockers

• By Julia Evans

DURING A Mental as Anything

gig in 1978, Andrew McArthur

demolished an entire box of KFC

chicken, 16 pieces. “No trouble,”

he said.

He’s had the nickname Greedy

Smith ever since.

McArthur and his fellow

Mental as Anything bandmates

will be flying from Sydney, set to

play Selwyn Sounds on March 3.

The festival at Lincoln Domain

follows last year’s event, which

saw a star studded list of Kiwi

acts perform in front of about

8000 people.

But this year’s Selwyn

Sounds has added a couple of

Australians to the bill. Mental as

Anything are joined by Jimmy

Barnes.

Although Mental as Anything

still has a bit of a New Zealand

connection. “Until 2000 we had

two Kiwis in the band,” he said.

AUSSIE ROCKERS: Mental as Anything are ready to play

alongside fellow Australian Jimmy Barnes at Selwyn Sounds. ​

Chris and Peter O’Doherty

were part of the band playing

lead guitar and bass from when

it formed 41 years ago in 1976

– the brothers were born in

Auckland but moved to Sydney

before they were teenagers.

McArthur said they’re both

full-time visual artists now.

There wouldn’t be an

Australian music industry if

you took away all the Kiwis,”

he said. “It’s cross-cultural

pollination.”

That pollination even includes

McArthur’s girlfriend who was

born in Christchurch. So he said

the band always looks forward to

a trip across the ditch.

“I’ve got the loveliest memories

of touring with The Exponents

… we did a great show in

Christchurch with them,” he

said.

McArthur promised Selwyn

Sounds would be no different.

Although he did have one

piece of advice: “Pack your

sunscreen.”

During the March set

audiences can expect “a bit

of friendship” and “a bit of

silliness.”

“People will be really surprised

at how much of our stuff they

know. We play songs people

will like and try to win over the

punter.”

Mental as Anything has spent

a lot of time “polishing the old

stuff” in preparation.

“We’re always playing. In 40

years, the last time I had six

weeks off was 1990 when I fell

off a horse,” McArthur said.

But the band has such an

impressive back catalogue,

McArthur said the music he’s

currently listening to is Mental

as Anything. Just so he can

remember the songs.

“It’s been 40 years since we

wrote some of it. You forget,” he

said.

But even though the band has

been together for more than four

decades, Mental as Anything

is still releasing new music.

Its latest work 5 Track EP was

released earlier this year.

TEST: Stellar are set to re-unite for Selwyn Sounds in March at Lincoln Domain. ​

Group to reunite for

Lincoln music festival

• By Julia Evans

BOH RUNGA has just opened her own

jewellery store in Ponsonby, Auckland.

But on March 3 she’ll be getting Stellar

back together and heading to Lincoln

Domain for Selwyn Sounds.

The day-long music festival follows this

year’s inaugural event, which saw Kiwi

music heavyweights the Jordan Luck Band,

Mi-Sex and Dragon play to a crowd of

about 8000.

Growing up in Hornby with sister Bic,

Runga said she hadn’t spent much time in

the small town but had been to several of

Lincoln University’s notorious parties.

“My father went to Lincoln College but I

just went to parties,” she said.

She’s looking forward to playing so close

to home, she said “people are always happy

you’ve come to play.”

But Stellar isn’t officially back together.

The March festival could be a bit of a test,

Runga hasn’t ruled out a full reunion.

“I’m not sure if we are back together per

se, we are doing some gigs and we always

had fun doing that. We’ll see where us

hanging out again leads,” Runga said.

Alongside a reunited Stellar, fans will

get the chance to see Jimmy Barnes, The

Mockers and The Feelers.

In the meantime, she said if you’re in

Auckland, head down Ponsonby Rd to Boh

Runga Jewellery: “I’ll probably be there!”

•Selwyn Sounds will be held on

March 3 at Lincoln Domain from

11am-8.30pm. Tickets available at

Dyers Pass Rd speed

limit may come down

• By Sarla Donovan

GOVERNORS BAY

resident Rosie Belton is

pleased the Dyers Pass

Rd speed limits could be

lowered to 60km/h.

The well-known

author has been a vocal

campaigner on road safety

issues, including speeding

vehicles and boy racer

activity in Governors Bay.

The city council is

currently seeking public

feedback on a proposal

to change the speed limit

on Dyers Pass Rd, from

its intersection with

Governors Bay Rd to the

Sign of the Takahe.

Currently the speed limit

along that stretch

of the road varies

between 50km/h

and 100km/h.

Under the

proposal put

forward the

variable speed

limits would be

changed to one

consistent speed

limit of 60km/h.

Ms Belton said it

was “fantastic” news.

“That’ll be brilliant. But

I expect lots of people

will complain, including

locals,” she said.

Rosie Belton

DANGER: A lower speed limit is expected to reduce

the number of crashes on Dyers Pass Rd.

About 180 accidents have

been recorded over the past

decade along that stretch of

Dyers Pass Rd, resulting in

one fatality and 14

serious injuries.

“Loss of

control due to

inappropriate

speeds into

bends and risky

overtaking account

for a concerning

number of the

reported accidents,’’ said

city council transport

operations manager Aaron

Haymes.

“To improve safety we

are proposing a new speed

limit of 60km/h. We are

also proposing to add

double yellow no passing

lines and two new slow

vehicle bays.’’

Mr Haymes says the

aim of the double yellow

lines was to keep motorists

on their side of the road.

Motorists are legally able to

cross double yellow lines to

pass cyclists if they are able

to do so safely.

Public feedback is open

until December 18. Visit

a 60km/h speed limit

Central Brighton school site

may be sold to developers

• By Sophie Cornish

THE CENTRAL New

Brighton School site

could be sold to private

developers.

A community meeting

was scheduled to be held

last night with a key focus

being the future of the Roy

Stokes Hall which is on the

site.

There is concern the hall

will be also demolished as

part of any new development

on the Seaview Rd

site.

Said Renew Brighton

manager Sylvia Smyth:

The hall was built for and

has always functioned as

both a community and

school asset. It has been

a treasured by the community

for over 40 years,

including serving as an

emergency centre after the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.”

The site is destined for

sale and the community

have not been consulted at

all in this process. We have

asked for a pause in this

process so that the community

has the space and

time to decide what comes

next,” said Miss Smyth.

Renew Brighton will host

tomorrow’s meeting with

the Christchurch Circus

Trust, which leases the hall.

The school was closed

at the end of 2015. The

Ministry of Education is in

the process of disposing of

the site.

Crown agencies and

Ngai Tahu have said no to

buying it, leaving the way

clear for private developers

to move in.

The hall was completed

in 1977 after a large

fundraising effort from the

school committee, which

raised $108,000 of the

$150,000 it cost to establish

the hall.

“Hundreds” of members

of the community took

part in the fund-raising

effort, led by the school’s

committee chairman Roy

Stokes, said Miss Smyth.

The school committee,

along with members of the

community, ran housie

nights twice a week for 15

years to raise the money.

DIABETES AWARENESS

People with Diabetes

Our right to a healthy future

Diabetes Christchurch and many other

societies in this district are delighted to

be collaborating with the Lions Clubs

District 202E. Lions Clubs International

recently adopted diabetes as one of their

new core projects. In July this year, it was

announced by Naresh Aggarwal, the Lions

Clubs International President, at the 100th

Convention held in Chicago, who said that

Lions Clubs will not sit on the sidelines as

the disease “diabetes” mounts. We will be

in the thick of efforts to prevent and treat

the disease. He formally announced their

new commitment to curtailing diabetes.

Echoing Helen Keller’s appeal to Lions in

1925 at their convention to become Knights

of the Blind, (Keller Johnson-Thompson,

Keller’s great grand-niece – who also spoke

at this convention), urged Lions to take on

this new challenge of diabetes.

The Diabetes Christchurch Society have

now had several positive meetings with the

202E District Governor, Peter Gamble and

Sam Lilley (District Global Service Team

Leader) to discuss diabetes awareness talks

and are in the process of helping to organise

many of the Lions Clubs, (including

the West Coast, Nelson, Marlborough,

Kaikoura and Canterbury) who will all

help, support and participate in various

diabetes awareness programs, activities,

projects and fundraising initiatives to help

support the local diabetes societies in this

district.

Manager of Diabetes Christchurch

Inc, Lynne Taylor said she was absolutely

delighted with this marvellous support

being offered towards the promotion on

diabetes awareness and looks forward to

raising the profile and education about

diabetes. With these statistics and concerns

in mind, Lions Clubs have taken action

through this international initiative and

both Peter Gamble and Sam Lilley said

their Lions Groups will work hard to focus

on this chronic condition and their work

will support diabetes awareness, education,

prevention, detection, control and research

throughout the coming years.

Diabetes Christchurch Inc is a support

organisation for Canterbury people who

have diabetes, their family and friends.

We offer support, information, advocacy

and non-clinical education on all aspects

of diabetes. Our shop has a wide range of

products including blood glucose meters

and strips, lancets, fingerpickers, ketone

test strips, cookbooks, hypo treatments,

medical grade shoes and socks, travel bags,

our popular Jok ‘n Al sauces and toppings,

and sugar-free treats. Via our website:

www.diabetes.christchurch.co.nz all these

diabetes products are also available online.

Our programmes span from awareness

to prevention, to engagement and support.

The society is about supporting people with

diabetes and is about making meaningful

connections with those people affected

by or at risk of diabetes. We want every

person affected by, or at risk of diabetes in

Canterbury to have access to the support

needed to live a full and active life.

Our office/shop is on the Ground Floor,

550 Hagley Avenue, phone 378-6266,

and open Monday to Friday from 9am-

4pm. Our staff can help you find further

information or make an appointment for

the subsidised podiatry toenail clipping

service. You can become involved with our

diabetes awareness programmes or other

fundraising and volunteer activities coming

up. The calendar of events is on our website

www.diabeteschristchurch.co.nz or check

us out on our Facebook pages at www.

facebook.com/DiabetesChristchurchInc

We have a good library of pamphlets and

books on food, exercise and other diabetes

issues. All members receive our Viewpoint

newsletter, which includes information

on all aspects of diabetes, and updates on

local events, as well as local, national and

international diabetes research. We would

love to include your stories about diabetes

in this. Email Lynne, the manager, lynne.

taylor@cdhb.health.nz

Our local campaign is focussing on

raising awareness of how the healthy

food choices can be the easy food choice

and the various steps that individuals

can take to make informed decisions

about what they eat. Special focus will be

placed on the importance of starting the

day with a healthy breakfast. Exercising

30 minutes per day, testing your blood

glucose as recommended by your general

practice medical team and getting support,

information and advocacy from your local

society.

The society is here to help educate and

inform people with diabetes, to promote

healthy lifestyles and effective diabetes selfmanagement

for optimal diabetes control.

Peter Gamble, District Governor

of Lions Clubs District 202E with

Diabetes Christchurch Manager,

Lynne Taylor look forward to

proactively working together to

promote diabetes awareness.

ADVICE with

Now is the best time to sow a new lawn or tackle any lawn problems.

Over sow any bare or brown patches in the lawn with Daltons

Premium 4-in-1 Lawn Patching Gold, which has everything in one

bag and is easy to use. Feed established lawns with Daltons Premium

Lawn Fertiliser from October until Christmas (avoiding the hot summer

months), recommencing from late February until late April.

z

QUESTION I was given a Daphne in late 2016. Planted it facing east, however it did not do well so I

put it in a pot in April this year with potting mix and a bit of acid fertiliser. Unfortunately,

it is giving up. I love Daphne, what am I doing wrong?

ANSWER

Today’s winning question came from Pauline & Fred. Congratulations!

In general terms, Daphne are not the easiest of shrubs to cultivate. They are incredibly

rewarding with their perfume during winter months, but quite often a difficult plant to

establish in the garden.

Part of the problem lies in the method of production before they reach the

garden centre. They are often field grown in nurseries and then dug up

and potted for sale. Daphne do not like root disturbance and often

can be seen in some garden centers with yellow leaves, leaves

falling or the leaves in a drooping position.

Selection of a very healthy specimen at the time of purchase

is critical. In the garden, they have a preference for welldrained

soil, rich in compost and in a position receiving

good light, but not baking in hot summer sun.

We have a Daltons Premium Lawn Care Pack to giveaway.

Everything you need to care for your lawn! Each pack is

valued at over $80 and contains:

• Daltons Premium Lawn Fertiliser

• Daltons Lawn Patching Gold

• Daltons Premium Lawn Soil

• PLUS a pair of comfortable,

versatile Red Back gardening

gloves from Omni Products

(www.omniproducts.co.nz)

BE IN

TO WIN!

$80

PRIZE

PACK!

Once established, Daphne will thrive requiring only a

moderate amount of attention. Daphne Odora Rubra is

by far the most successful home garden species. While

they can be grown in containers, ensure the container is

large enough for full root development and has sufficient

drainage holes to avoid the potting mix becoming sodden.

Grow guides www.daltons.co.nz/how-to-guides

Keeping up with kumara

• By Henri Ham

LIKE POTATOES, kumara

would have to be one of

those vegetables that is a

pretty regular feature in my

pantry.

They’re versatile (there’s a

long list of dishes I can add

kumara to) and they taste

great.

Each seedling needs to

be planted around 50cm to

1m from the next, so you

do need a bit of space to

have a kūmara crop.

It’s important that you

raise a mound of soft soil

for the kumara to spread

out in. Cultivate your

soil with a rake and then

mound it up in to a hill

around 40cm high.

Next make a small

trench approximately 5cm

deep and lay the seedling

so that the root is lying in

the trench parallel to the

top of the soil, rather than

pushing the root down like

you might with another

vegetable.

Make sure you bend the

seedling so the leaves are

sticking out of the top of

the soil (a J shape). This

will ensure the plant’s roots

(via the leaves) get plenty of

warmth from the sun.

Water gently – it’s important

not to water forcefully

as this might make the

mound flatten out or the

plant roll off the mound.

Do this for the first few

days and then ensure they

get some water weekly.

Depending on what

summer is like this year

you may not need to do any

extra watering at all. But if

it’s hot and dry keep an eye

on things and water at least

weekly.

When you know they’re

ready, harvest very gently.

Broken kumara won’t store.

Fire rages, homes at risk

HISTORIC: Get dropped off at Dufferin Tce by the funicular railway. It is the site

of the fort and chateau which served as the official residence for the governors

of New France.

PRISTINE: The Lower Town is nestled around the base of the Place Royale.

Quebec – clinging to Gallic traditions

• By Mike Yardley

IT IS like a grand evocative set,

a landscape spanning 400 years,

bestowed with World Heritage

protection in 1985.

Old Quebec is the only North

American walled city beyond

Mexico, underpinning its proud

sense of historical continuity.

A city that clings to her Frenchspeaking

heritage and Gallic

traditions, the cradle of French

North America, where the dream

of New France was born and

died.

The Old City comprises the

Upper Town, surrounded by

fortifications and strutting the

craggy heights of Diamond Cape,

while the Lower Town is nestled

around its base, fanning out from

Place Royale.

I started my exploratory at this

compact and photogenic plaza

which the locals consider as the

birthplace of French America.

It is where the famed French

explorer Samuel de Champlain

made his home away from home

in 1608, declaring it French territory.

There’s still a bust of Louis

XIV, the Sun King, in the centre

of the plaza, installed in 1686,

which was the town’s bustling

marketplace in the 17th and 18th

centuries.

Fifty years ago, the harbourside

district was reborn and rehabilitated,

with antique shops, bistros,

and chic boutique hotels breathing

renewed atmosphere into the

plaza.

Dominating the square is Notre-Dame-des-Victoires,

Québec’s

oldest stone church, built in 1688

after an inferno razed many

Lower Town homes. Built atop

the ruins of Champlain’s first

outpost, British cannons smashed

the church during the 1759 siege,

which was lustily restored four

years later.

Its paintings, altar, and large

model boat suspended from the

ceiling, were brought by early

settlers to ensure safe voyages.

Unsurprisingly, the church is one

of the most coveted locations for

weddings in Canada. It’s fully

booked for the next two years.

Rue du Petit-Champlain is

arguably the prettiest street in

the city, flanked by impeccably

restored merchant houses and

fur trading posts, now brimming

with bistros, art galleries and

handicraft boutiques.

Natural-fibre weaving, Inuit

carvings, hand-painted silks,

local fashion design, and enamelled

copper crafts are among

the trademark specialties for

sale here. After founding the

settlement in the Lower Town,

Champlain relocated its heart to

the more easily defendable Upper

Town, atop Diamond Cape.

Originally the two districts

were connected by the vividlynamed

Breakneck Staircase, a

gut-busting stairway first built in

1635. Originally built in wood,

the current steel staircase replaced

it in 1968. It’s no problem

tottering down, but a hell of a

thigh-burner clambering back up.

Save your energy and opt for the

funicular when ascending.

I’m a funicular fanatic from

way back and Quebec’s cliffclimbing

contraption is a classic.

It’s actually one of the region’s

oldest businesses, hauling humanity

since 1879.

The funicular coughs you out

onto Dufferin Tce, which occupies

the site of the fort and chateau

which served as the official

residence for the governors of

New France, including the British

rulers, until it was destroyed by

fire in 1834.

The governor at the time,

Lord Durham, decided to build

a sprawling cliff-side wooden

promenade on top of the chateau

ruins, which has been progressively

enlarged now extending

for a kilometre along the cliffs of

Cape Diamond. Lurking beneath

the terrace, the archaeological

crypt of the chateau’s remains and

the seat of power for French and

British governors.

A major excavation project

has revitalised the ruins and the

relics, which you can now walk

through, underneath the terrace.

The terrace eventually leads you

all the way down to the Plains of

Abraham, where a 20min battle

changed the course of history

and a continent’s destiny. It was

on this field that Britain’s General

James Wolfe and the French General

de Montcalm crossed swords

and both died, climaxing in the

British army conquering Quebec,

spelling the death on New France.

It’s a peaceful city park now,

full of winding walking paths

and bicycle trails, and a favourite

spot for cross-country skiers,

come winter. Adjoining the park,

the British reinforced the city’s

defences and built a colossal starshaped

fortress, the Citadel.

It is the largest fortified base in

North America still occupied by

troops. The regiment turns out in

scarlet tunics and bearskin caps

for the changing of the guard,

daily. In a city that has borne

witness to such dramatic military

history, the Fort Museum brings

it all to life with a riveting sound

and light show cast across a giant

diorama, re-enacting the area’s

important battles.

It’s all staged across a 37 sq m

replica of the city – complete with

ships, cannons, and hundreds of

miniature soldiers lined up for

battle. www.quebecregion.com

STRATEGIC: Hotel Chateau Frontenac is on the site where

former French and British governors once held power.

PRETTY: Rue du Petit-Champlain is brimming with boutiques,

galleries and bistros.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Chicago brings ‘all that jazz’ to Court

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PREPARE TO step into the roaring 20s as

one of the city’s largest theatre companies

brings crime, razzle-dazzle, scandal and

all that jazz to the stage.

The Court Theatre will stage one of

the longest running shows in Broadway

history as its major musical for the year –

Chicago.

And the show’s iconic role of the

fidgety and innocent yet selfish character

Roxie Hart will be

played by National

Academy of Singing

and Dramatic Art

graduate Nomi

Cohen.

Having grown

up watching the

2002 film starring

Catherine Zeta-

Jones and Renée

Nomi Cohen

Zellweger, she

considers Roxie

one of the most exciting roles she has

played.

“I find she is a fidgety sort of person

and has a really unstable sort of energy

. . . you will probably notice she isn’t

necessarily super consistent with the sort

of person she is because she doesn’t really

know who she is,” Cohen, 25, said.

Set in Chicago during prohibition, it

focuses on the concept of corruption and

celebrity criminals during the 1920s.

Cohen said she certainly does not plan

on clawing her way to the top, but she

shares similarities to her character in

terms of drive and determination.

“I think we all want to be loved

and want to be admired and

want to be good at what we do

and be recognised.

Originally from Flagstaff,

Arizona, Cohen moved to

Christchurch when she

was eight and has been

based in Auckland for the

past four years.

It has been a tough

road for Cohen since

her graduation from the

National Academy of

Singing and

Dramatic

Art in

2012.

“You graduate and you think success

means a constant job. I think that

is simply not true,” she

said. But she said

when she

looks back

she has

been

•Chicago runs at The Court Theatre

from Saturday to January 20.

courttheatre.org.nz/

lucky to work in the performing arts most

of the time.

“I think there is an exciting and

important conversation starting to

happen over the last year that talks about

the mental health of performing artists,”

she said.

She said no one can prepare you for

what it feels like to have swallow your

pride and take a normal job because you

have to pay the bills.

“Find ways of getting through the tough

times that don’t involve things that aren’t

good for your body. Drugs and alcohol

can be quite a big issue within our

industry,” she said.

Some of her favourite work she

has performed includes her own

award-winning show S+S Song

& Cabaret: PUSS.

Growing up, Cohen saw no

other option than to go to

performing arts school.

She said when she was

younger and “beyond the

age of cute”, she would

create entire outfits out of

scarfs or dress up as a cat

and drink milk out of a

saucer on the ground.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

STRAWBERRY AND

MARSHMALLOW PARFAIT

Ingredients

½ cup Marshmallows, small

350g Sugar

500g Strawberries, hulled

6 Eggs, 4 yolks, 2 whole

2 cups Cream, thick

500g Strawberries, fresh, for

garnish

Directions

To prepare the tin, line a narrow

terrine mould about 30cm

x 10cm with plastic wrap. Set

some of the marshmallows along

the bottom with some strawberry

slices.

Place the strawberries in a

saucepan with half the sugar.

Bring to a gentle simmer over a

low heat. The juices will come

out, so there is no need to add

water. Simmer for no more

than 2min, then remove from

the heat and mash or purée the

mixture.

Return it to the pan and set

aside. Use an electric beater to

whisk the egg yolks and whole

eggs with the remaining sugar

until thick and mousse-like.

Return the strawberry and sugar

mixture to the heat and bring to

a simmer. With the beater still

running, tip this hot mixture

into the eggs and continue

whisking until it is really thick

and well incorporated. The hot

sugar and strawberries “cook”

the egg yolk, so it is not raw.

Whip the cream until it reaches

soft peaks, then fold it gently

through. Add the remaining

marshmallows to the mixture.

Spoon it into the prepared tin.

Cover with plastic wrap and

freeze for at least 24 hours. To

serve, cut the parfait into slices,

surround with sliced strawberries

and place in a cup.

HOW TO ROAST THE

PERFECT WHOLE LEG OF

LAMB

Whole leg of lamb

1-2 tbsp oil

Rock salt

Freshly ground black pepper

4-5 sprigs fresh rosemary

Take the lamb out of the fridge

30min before cooking to allow

it to come to room temperature.

Preheat the oven to 170 deg C.

Place a wire rack in a roasting

tray, place the lamb on the rack

and brush the meat with the oil

and then season with the rock

salt and freshly ground black

pepper.

Rub the lamb with the rosemary

sprigs leaving them in the

roasting dish. Place the meat into

the oven and roast at 160 deg C,

allowing 30min per 500g.

To test if the meat is cooked,

use a skewer to pierce the leg at

the thickest part, going through

to the bone. If the juices are clear,

the lamb is cooked.

Remove the lamb from the

oven, cover the meat with some

aluminum foil and then set the

lamb aside to rest, for approximately

15-20min. Carve the meat

and serve with your favourite

vegetables and plenty of gravy.

Selwyn Motorfest and Family Fun Day

Sunday 26th November, 10am-3pm

Jones Road Auto

Head to the Jones Road Auto Selwyn

Motors and more on display

A great day’s entertainment is on

order for the inaugural Jones Road Auto

Selwyn Motor Fest and Family Fun Day.

Hours of planning and work have gone

into making this a great day out and

there will be something for everyone in

the family, especially motor enthusiasts.

Covering 30 hectares, the Jones Road

Auto Selwyn Motor Fest and Family Fun

Day will be a huge affair with hundreds

of cars, trucks, motorcycles, motors,

tractors, steam engines and interesting

displays, as well as market and food stalls.

The first of its kind for the district, this

event has attracted considerable interest

with over 200 show vehicles registered so

far. Motor vehicles on display will range

from a 1914 Model T to late model cars

like a 2014 Corvette and 2017 Lotus 7.

The Ellesmere Vintage Club, Vintage

Speedway and RATEC Motorsport will

be there, while the Canterbury Mustang

Club are making this day an official club

event.

The grounds look fantastic with the

grass cut and baled for seating. There’ll

be something for everyone with a great

show of motor vehicles and wide variety

of stalls and entertainment throughout

the day,” says Selwyn District Councillor

Craig Watson who is on the organising

committee.

Craig says the event will be a fete

with a motor focus, cool activities and

displays. Local emergency services

including St John ambulances; vintage

and car clubs; rally cars; the New

Zealand Trucking Association; the

Selwyn District Council; Residents’

Association; Selwyn Parenting

Network; and other community

groups will be present. There will be

plenty for the children too, with a

Bunnings Warehouse construction

display, bouncy castles, face painting,

pony rides, steam engine rides and

more.

Thirty plus market stalls will

offer something for everyone, from

motoring paraphernalia to children’s

clothing and Tupperware, with an

additional 15 food stalls and four

coffee vendors providing a range of

cuisine.

Relax and listen to the music of

Shed 24 and Lee Martin after strolling

around the exhibits and motors on

display.

Supporting St John

The Selwyn Central St John branch has

responsibility for raising $150,000 towards

their local operation. All money from the

Jones Road Auto Selwyn Motor Fest and

Family Fun Day will go to supporting

the Leeston and Rolleston stations,

ambulances and vital services offered by

St John throughout a district that covers a

considerable geographic area.

Local business

supports local

community

When Nigel and Lisa Fleck heard about

plans for a motor fest they were keen to

get involved, leading to Jones Road Auto

becoming major sponsor for the event.

With a shared interest in cars and both

Nigel and Lisa driving their own classic cars,

the idea of holding a family oriented motor

fest in Selwyn appealed, especially as it is a

fundraiser for St John.

“With it being a family event and fundraiser

for such a good cause, it was important for us

to be involved,” says Lisa who with Nigel own

and operate Jones Road Auto and Selwyn

Auto.

“Participation in this event allows us to give

something back to the community especially

when St John helps so many people.”

Plug-in Prius takes charge

• By Ross Kiddie

I GET the impression

we are on the cusp of a

dramatic change in the way

automobiles are built, well,

more specifically, the way

they are powered.

Some manufacturing

companies have already

announced a phasing out

of the internal combustion

engine while others

are rapidly increasing

development of electric

cars.

Add to that the desire

by many governments

to increase the electric

vehicle fleet, including

New Zealand, and the

stage is set for an electric

revolution.

In New Zealand at

present there are several

plug-in, electric-only

models in our new car

market, and there are many

others available pre-owned

through direct imports

from Japan, and if you take

into account the multitude

of hybrid models available

new, then a definite wind

of change can be felt.

The car that started the

hybrid revolution, Toyota’s

Prius, is not available here

new as a plug-in, even

though it is marketed

extensively in Japan and

the United States.

However, if you are keen

to join the plug-in brigade,

yet find the cost of buying

electric quite prohibitive,

then Toyota may still have

the answer. Toyota New

Zealand is importing preowned,

low kilometre Prius

models direct from Japan,

TOYOTA PRIUS PHEV: Pre-owned from Toyota’s

Signature Class operation.

they are refurbished at

Toyota’s Thames Signature

Class facility before offered

to the dealer network.

Toyota New Zealand

made one of these available

for evaluation, and the first

thing you notice is that it

still has that easy-to-drive

operation that we have

come to know in Prius, it

is intuitive and the hybrid

system is still very much

intact, the plug-in facility is

an extra, it’s there to offer

electric-only travel.

When battery energy

runs low, the four-cylinder

1.8-litre petrol mechanism

cuts in to work in the way

that hybrids have now

become familiar.

Because the evaluation

car was pre-owned I didn’t

take stock of the fuel usage

benefits Prius offers, except

to say new Prius is rated

with a 3.4-litre per 100km

(82mpg) combined cycle

fuel usage average.

The plug-in effect

wouldn’t alter that figure,

it’s just that by plugging it

in and charging you are

effectively prolonging the

time before petrol power

cuts in.

Of course, there are

buttons to alternate

between the two power

sources at the driver’s

discretion, but the Prius

in this form is intuitive,

it does things in its own

way so seamlessly that the

driver needn’t know what

is going on under the

bonnet.

New Zealand buyers

have been served well by

the beautifully-presented

models from Toyota

Signature Class operation.

The evaluation car was

pristine, showing just

17,000km. Similar models

are listing for around

$35,000.

That represents a huge

saving against some of the

new electric-only models

in today’s market here.

• By Gordon Findlater

CHRISTCHURCH’S top tennis

player will look to put his name

alongside some of the greats

from the past 116 years when he

competes for one of Canterbury’s

oldest sporting trophies at

Wilding Park this weekend.

James Meredith, 27, is the No

1 seed for the Canterbury Open,

a title he came within touching

distance of two years ago.

The open was first played in

1901 and contains some of the

biggest names in New Zealand

tennis over the past century,

including the likes of Onny Parun,

Brian Fairlie, Alistair Hunt,

David Lewis and Mark Nielson.

“To have my name alongside

names like that would be an

honour,” said Meredith.

The Cashmere player is looking

to go one step better than the

last time he played in the open

in 2015. He was defeated in the

final by French Open doubles

champion Michael Venus in

three sets 4-6, 7-5, 4-6.

“2015 was really special playing

in front of a home crowd at

Cashmere. The atmosphere there

was awesome and I’m hoping

we get another good showing

at Wilding Park this weekend,”

said Meredith.

His chances of lifting the title

received a massive boost yesterday

when 2016 champion, Rhett

Purcell, of Auckland, withdrew

from the open due to injury.

Meredith has been on a good

run of form leading into the

open. He is unbeaten playing for

Cashmere in the Christchurch

inter-club competition and has

also been travelling to Auckland

to play in its inter-club competition.

In Auckland, he has had

The winner of the championship

will walk away with

of $10,000 will be split equally

across the men’s and women’s

competiton.

The 16-strong men’s tournament

will be made up of 11

seeded players, with 10 others

playing off for the remaining five

spots on Friday. The opening two

rounds will be played on Saturday.

The semi-finals and final

will take place on Sunday.

The women’s open consists

of an eight-strong draw, with

Australian Emily Martin heading

a trio of local hopes in Tessa

McCann, Joelene Feneon and

Abby Mason.

top on 10 points with Northern

Football and Southern Football.

Auckland Football are also in

the race for the top three on nine

A win on Sunday will guarantee

the Pride at least a spot in the

pre-final on December 3. However,

if Northern and Southern

drop points, the Pride could

finish the round-robin in top

spot which will automatically

qualify them for the final. The

when it was won by nine-time

world rally champion Sebastien

Loeb.

Top seed for the event will be

World Rally Championship star

Hayden Paddon, who will team

up with former co-driver John

Kennard in their Hyundai i20

AP4+ car. Hawkeswood will run

second on the road in his Mazda

2 AP4+, while Hunt’s Subaru

WRX STi will run third ahead

of Summerfield who has a handy

road position of fourth.

“Obviously Hayden [Paddon]

is going to be the guy to beat, but

we’re all going to be on the limit

behind him,” said Summerfield.

The rally consists of 12 special

stages run over Saturday and

Sunday.

& Property

What’s my house really worth?

When you’ve lived in a property for

a while it can be hard to be rational

about its worth. How can you put a

price on the spot where you’ve built

so many memories with family and

friends? Someone will surely recognise

the hours you spent sanding back the

windows or digging out the agapanthus

in the garden and reward you with a

high price, won’t they? Unfortunately

potential buyers may see things

differently, especially in a slow housing

market.

There are several methods you

can use to gauge the worth of your

property. Remember that the rateable

value or RV (formerly known as the

government valuation, or GV) of your

property doesn’t really provide any

clues. These valuations are done by the

local council to work out what share of

rates a household should pay. They are

only done every three years and don’t

take any improvements into account –

increasingly, properties that include an

RV figure in the advertising will come

with a disclaimer that it is not indicative

of current market value.

These days you can gather a lot of

information for free thanks to websites

like Trade Me and Homes.co.nz. Trade

Me’s Property Insights has information

on more than 1.5 million homes,

including rateable value data, previous

sale prices, when the property was built

and what size it is. The site also provides

an estimated value range, based on

a melting pot of data from sales of

comparable properties, listing details

and user activity. Homes.co.nz operates

similarly. Its estimate service is built

on a complex set of valuation models,

using around 30 million pieces of data

bought from councils nationwide, plus

sales values and a wide set of property

features. Both sites recognise there are a

number of factors at play, so they offer

an estimated value range that can be

quite broad.

While both these sites are useful, they

don’t show the full picture and should

only be used as the starting point in

determining value. They can’t take

the condition of your property into

account and they may not recognise

any improvements you might have

made (though homes.co.nz does allow

owners to ‘claim’ their property and edit

information about it).

Let’s say you own a large property in

an area where there have been some

big-ticket sales in the last year. Your

property might have some serious

structural issues and be in generally

poor condition, yet the algorithms

may claim that it is worth a lot more

than any sensible buyer would pay

for it because other houses in the

neighbourhood have sold for high

prices. The impact of this is two-fold.

Firstly, the seller could anticipate a big

pay-day that may never arrive; and

secondly, some buyers may be put off

making an offer because they think it’s

out of range.

There are a couple of ways to combat

this. When you start working with a

real estate agent to sell your property

they must supply you with a current

market appraisal or CMA. This is based

on similar information to the online

versions, but it also comes with the

agent’s real-time, real-life knowledge

of the area, what similar properties

have sold for and the condition and

particular characteristics of your

own property (such as whether it

has been repainted recently or it’s in

a state of disrepair). The agent will

have had the chance to walk through

your property and identify its unique

selling propositions, such as good sun,

proximity to desirable schools and other

features that buyers like. It’s important

to note that you may get varying CMA

ranges from different real estate agents

as they may each take a divergent

perspective on your property that you

will then need to consider.

Your other option is to pay a

registered valuer to provide you with

an independent valuation. This service

comes at a cost (the price will vary,

depending on the level of detail), but

it will be more accurate. The Property

Institute, which represents valuers, says

a registered valuation can help sellers

be a little more clinical about their

property’s worth.

Even with all the information you

can gather, the true indication of

your property’s value is what a willing

buyer will pay for it at the given time

that it’s on the market. A valuation, a

price range or a figure reached by an

algorithm is not cash in the bank.

ONE ONLY SHOW!

Shane

David

PLAYTIME Promotions treat Christchurch to two iconic artists

in a one off show at the Hornby Workingmen’s Club next Friday

night - Shane Hale and David LaPlanche.

Recent recipient of the Queen’s Birthday honours Order of

Merit, rock n roll legend Shane Hales, has been performing for

over five decades. Simply known as Shane, he was a 60's

TV/Recording star with many hits to his credit, including 1969

Loxene Golden Disc award for his single ‘Saint Paul’. Elvis,

Buddy, Dion, Cliff, Ricky, and Stones are some of the artists he

will be covering at next Friday’s show, as well as some of his

own hits.

Joining him, direct from Australia is Waimate-born pop

tribute artist, David LaPlanche. Formerly from Christchurch,

David now lives in NSW and is a regular on the club circuits

both here and in Australia. He will be presenting his renditions

of hits by Cash, Cliff, Darin, Nelson, Presley and more!

Shane and David, backed by the Flashback Rockers

Showband, are “Reelin’ in the Rockin’ 50's - 60's” at the Hornby

Workingmen’s Club next Friday 1st December 2017. Show starts

at 8pm. Tickets are $20 on sale now at the club office, Carmen

Rd, phone 03 349 9026.
