Heritage repairs

may have to wait

• By Bridget Rutherford

EARTHQUAKE repairs for some

of Christchurch’s significant

historic buildings have been put

on hold pending a review of city

council finances.

City council staff have put

together a list containing heritage

buildings yet to be repaired requiring

Long Term Plan funding

with no determined future use.

The repairs have been put

on hold until they have been

reviewed.

The heritage-listed Municipal

Chambers, Canterbury Provincial

Council Chambers and

Ferrymead’s Penfold Cottage are

among those on hold.

It came after concerns the

repair and restoration of heritage

buildings were being presented

to city councillors for decision

making on an “ad hoc basis.”

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

News.....................................3-21

CHRISTMAS MIGHT be right

on the radar but there’s another

big event looming too – the

City2Surf.

Yep, it’s only a handful of

months away (see page 3) so it’s

time to start lacing up those

running shoes and pound the

pavement or local park to get in

some sort of shape.

The great thing about the

City2Surf – and this hasn’t

changed over the decades – is

that anyone regardless of shape

or fitness level can take part.

And this is why it has survived

for so long, and each year

thousands turn up.

A face that will appear on

the marketing of City2Surf this

year is Jesel Royokada, a Fijian

pastor.

Jesel was ecstatic when he

finished the event (I’m not calling

it a race) last year, and this

time around is encouraging

others, including his congregation

to run with him for

March’s event.

And remember it’s a family

event – children 10 and under

are free to participate.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This day in history saw the opening

of Memorial Ave on November

26, 1959. It is a memorial to

airmen killed in World War 2. On

November 27, 1985, the remains of

a swimming pool were uncovered

when excavating behind the No 1

stand at Lancaster Park. It was used

as a venue for the 1907 Australian

and New Zealand Swimming

Championships. On November

28, 1893, women voted for the first

time in Parliamentary elections. On

Walk of Stars for city

pavement

the same day in 1964, Lyttelton’s

Cashin Quay was opened. The

engineering techniques used in

reclaiming this area were unique

in the world. On November 29,

1978, rock singer David Bowie

performed at QE II Park. On

December 1, 1889, the first New

Zealand-built locomotive was

completed at Addington railway

workshops. On the same day in

1975, the Rolleston satellite town

project was scrapped.

Leap of faith for pastor

Getting into

the spirit

of fun run

• By Andrew King

JESEL ROYOKADA embodies

everything that is the Star

Media City2Surf.

Last year he was

photographed leaping into

the air after crossing the line

capturing the spirit of the event.

Now, the Christchurch Fijian

Seventh-Day Adventist Church

pastor has asked his congregation

of about 80 to get involved

in the event as a way to connect

with other cultures.

“We come from the islands

and sometimes we do things in

our own island groups but it is

good to get involved with the

rest of the community,” he said.

The 31-year-old encouraged

about 25 of his parishioners to

get involved in the event last

year

“It was the first time our

church has got involved with

something like this,” he said.

He said they were told about

the event by Healthy Families

Christchurch, part of a nationwide

Government initiative ​

aimed at helping New Zealanders

live healthy, active lives.

“I would like to see all 80

of them out there, and their

friends and families. We can

even have kids in prams at the

event,” he said.

He said they will start to train

soon for the event, which will be

held on March 18.

The event is split into two sections

– 6km and 14km.

The Star Media City2Surf

with Les Mills 14km event starts

in Centennial Park, Spreydon,

at 9am.

The Sport Canterbury 6km

In Brief

POLICE PROBE DEATH

The investigation into the

unexplained death of a man

discovered in Edmonds Park on

Ferry Rd is ongoing. It has been

reported a weapon was involved

and he is believed to be a Russian

fisherman. Detective Senior

Sergeant Jason Stewart said the

investigation into the “unexplained

death” will continue. A formal

identification process is under

way. Anyone in the area between

2-3.30am yesterday is urged to

contact their nearest police station

or Crimestoppers anonymously on

0800 555 111.

‘DROWN HIM’ CASE

Police are yet to make an arrest after

the brutal assault of a teenager in

Rolleston. The 15-year-old victim

was viciously attacked by a group in

Rolleston after a fireworks display

on November 4. They dragged him

to a water race and held his head

under water. Some in the group

chanted “drown him”. Police have

remained tight-lipped about the

investigation, saying inquiries are

“ongoing”.

PUSH FOR CITY LIVING

The Christchurch City Development

Forum met yesterday to discuss

ways to get more residential

development in the central city.

The behind closed doors meeting

was attended by city councillors,

developers and real estate agents.

Forum chairman Jamie Gough said

a lot was out of the city council’s

control, but the discussion was

about seeing what it could do to

help get development moving. The

city council and Government want

20,000 people living in the central

city by 2024.

QUAKE SERVICE SAVED

The Residential Advisory Service,

which provides help for earthquake

claimants navigating insurance

issues, will have its funding

extended until July. Minister for

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Megan Woods said the service was

to close next month but the new

Government has put $700,000 in to

keep it running. •Megan Woods’

Pet killed, man injured during dog attack

• By Sophie Cornish

DOG CONTROL officers were

called to a property two weeks

before a pensioner was attacked

by bull terriers which then killed

his bichon frise.

Roger Stare, 73, is now seeking

answers after his best mate

Charlie was mauled to death

in the Prestons subdivision on

Friday.

Mr Stare suffered multiple

wounds and bruising during the

unprovoked and surprise attack.

“I would like to know why this

happened . . . the dogs should

have never been there in the first

place,” he said.

The attack happened on Te

Rito St about 11am, while Mr

Stare was taking Charlie for his

daily walk.

Two bull terriers pushed their

way through an insecure window

in a house and charged at them.

A Te Rito St resident, who did

not want to be named, told The

Star yesterday she called dog

control two weeks ago when the

bull terriers escaped from the

property.

Mr Stare now wants to know

why the dogs were able to escape

again, this time with lethal consequences.

The city council has impounded

one of the bull terriers but the

other dog was allowed back to

its owner after being classed as a

“passenger to the attack.”

A city council spokeswoman

was unable to provide details yesterday

of the outcome of the call

out two weeks ago.

Mr Stare said the dogs’ owner

INJURIES: The aftermath of

rents the property they escaped

from and he has been issued a

48-hour notice to remove the

animals from the subdivision.

The Prestons subdivision

covenant lists that residents shall

not keep any dog which in whole

or part appears to be a pit bull

terrier, rottweiler, japanese akita,

japanese tosa, dogo argentino or

fila brasileiro on any properties.

The city council spokeswoman

said the dog involved in this

attack is being held in custody

at the animal shelter, until

this investigation has been

completed.

Heritage repairs may have to wait

•From page 1

City councillor Jamie

Gough said the upcoming

Long Term Plan consultation

process was the perfect

time to reassess what

projects to do, and when.

He said it was going

to cost “astronomical

figures” to repair both the

provincial chambers on

Durham St North and the

Municipal Chambers on

the corner of Oxford Tce

and Worcester Boulevard.

“We have to have a really

big conversation about this

because it will cost a lot of

money.”

Cr Gough said he wanted

to look at whether there

could be other repair

or ownership

options such as a

trust.

City councillor

Deon Swiggs said

the city council

needed to prioritise

budgets, otherwise

rates may

have to rise.

“We have to ask do we

do it now, and do we have

a use for it now, or do we

wait a few years.”

City council acting head

of parks Brent Smith said

Anna Crighton

WAITING: Repairs to the historic Municipal

Chambers are on hold. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

the full list of projects

on hold, pending review,

could not be released due

to commercial sensitivity.

“We’ll reassess this in

the new year

and will be in a

position to update

you further in

February 2018.”

The provincial

chambers date

back to the 1850s

and are the only

purpose-built

provincial government

buildings left in the

country.

The Municipal Chambers,

also known as Our

City – Otautahi, was the

first Queen Anne Arts and

Craft-style building in the

country. Penfold’s Cottage

was built in the early 1860s

by Captain James Penfold.

Christchurch Heritage

Trust chairwoman Anna

Crighton said those

buildings had been made

weather-tight, and the

city council was

“mothballing.”

The council is leading

heritage values by keeping

these buildings and

mothballing until they can

afford to do the restoration

work.”

The draft Long Term

Plan is likely to be adopted

in February before public

consultation. The final plan

will be adopted in June.

Burleigh fulfils grandad’s dream

• By Andrew King

CANCER-ridden Des Burleigh

knew he would never see his

grandson Phil play international

rugby.

So from Christchurch via

Skype he told Phil, playing in

Scotland for Edinburgh: “You

make sure you wear the blue

jersey son.”

A week later

Des passed

away. That was

six months ago.

At the

weekend, Phil

fulfilled his

Des Burleigh

grandfather’s

dream when

he ran on as a

late replacement for Scotland

in their 53-24 demolition of the

Wallabies in front of 67,000 at

Murrayfield.

Des would have been very

proud, Phil’s father Wayne

Burleigh said yesterday.

Originally from New Brighton,

Phil qualified to play for

Scotland because he has played

three years there.

Wayne – like his son, a gifted

midfielder who played for New

Brighton – told The Star Des’

words ran through his head as

he watched the match on TV.

And even more so when Phil

sang the Scottish national anthem

before kick-off.

Des, who spent a number of

years on the Canterbury Rugby

junior advisory board, was one

of Phil’s biggest fans, Wayne

said.

​“I think he knew he was on

the way out so he gave him a bit

of advice.”

“He would follow all his progress

[in Scotland] on his iPad

and Phil would Skype him all

the time,” Wayne said.

He said Phil’s other late

Phil’s appearance for Scotland

caps a great year for New

Brighton rugby.

He played alongside All Blacks

centre Ryan Crotty during his

club days at New Brighton and

another seasider, Kieron Fonotia,

made his debut for Manu

Samoa against the All Blacks on

June 16 at Eden Park. All three

played in the Shirley Boys’ High

also been on Samoa’s Northern

Tower Junction Toyworld

There’s always favourites and

they usually sell out. This year it’s

the LOL Dolls,” Ms Gray said.

She said the larger dolls had

sold out from all stores around

the country.

However, she promised she was

making an extra effort to get the

smaller LOL Doll back in store

before Christmas.

For boys, she said you can’t

go wrong with the latest NERF

love about shooting foam darts

of December 25.

$40k bicycle

parks likely to

be approved

THE CITY council could spend

$40,000 installing bicycle parks

across Christchurch each year.

City councillors have asked for

the money to be put aside annually

in the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan

budget.

City council planning and delivery

transport manager Lynette

Ellis said it was required to provide

adequate cycle parking, similar to

on and off-street car parks.

Private commercial developers

also had to provide adequate cycle

parks under the replacement District

Plan, she said.

The $40,000 set aside allows

funds for cycle stands to be installed

in key locations across the city at yet

to be identified locations.”

She said typically it costs about

$600 to buy and install each stand.

Therefore the money allocated

can provide approximately 65

stands per year.”

It would use a robust hoop style

stand and could fit two to three

bikes per hoop, she said.

The draft Long Term Plan is likely

to be approved in February before a

month of consultation.

The final plan will be adopted in

June.

Walk of Stars for city

• By Andrew King

CHRISTCHURCH IS set to get its

own version of the ‘Hollywood Stars’

in a new initiative by the City Mission.

The social service agency is offering

‘stars’ that will be placed in the Cashel

Mall from December 1. It is a way to

generate money and to thank sponsors.

The project is called “The Walk of

Stars.”

City Missioner Matthew Mark said

it allowed them to shout loud and

proud the wonderful people that keep

their organisation going.

The opportunity to highlight who

supports us on a regular basis is quite

a privilege,” he said.

It is the first time the City Mission

has used the idea.

“It has been well received and has

been a lot of fun,” he said.

So far 55 stars have been sold including

nine out of the 10 $5000 gold

stars available, he said.

Mr Mark said while it is great to say

thanks those who have donated, the

need grows every day.

“We still need to get the message

out there that the need is increasing,

we still want to share that, but we also

want to say thank you,” he said.

The stars cost between $100-

$5000 and can be purchased by

visiting: www.citymission.org.nz/

Friends find MKR

final too hot to handle

FOODIES Heather Andersen

and Mitch MacDonald were

unable to cook their way to

victory in Monday’s My Kitchen

Rules New Zealand grand-final.

The Christchurch friends

were beaten by five points by

Wanaka’s Chris and Bex Wright,

who walked away with the

$100,000 prize with a score of 52

out of 60.

The friends were dubbed the

villains of season three, but said

they were not as “awful” as viewers

thought.

“We feel so proud of making it

through to the grand-final even

though we didn’t come away

with the win. Congratulations

to Chris and Bex, it’s been great

cooking against them and they

certainly know their way around

a kitchen,” Mr MacDonald said.

The duo started on a high,

but the title soon slipped from

their grasp after they delivered a

beef fillet main over-powered by

onions.

But Ms Andersen made her

mark in the dessert round, with

an L&P cheesecake dubbed the

lightest the judges had ever eaten

on the show – but it was not

enough.

700km a

month

put on

council

vehicles

• By Bridget Rutherford

CITY COUNCIL vehicles clock

up more than 700km on average

each month.

There are 63 vehicles in the

city council’s generic pool based

at Hereford St, which can be

driven by staff at any time on

work business.

Twenty-four vehicles are based

at other sites for general staff

use, while there are 66 dedicated

vehicles for the exclusive use of a

single staff member.

There are also 44 specialist

vehicles allocated to a particular

unit.

Data provided to the The

Star showed, since January, the

dedicated vehicles have travelled

about 923km on average each

month.

The Hereford St pool vehicles

went about 900km, while those

in other locations went about

536km each month.

Specialist vehicles travelled an

average of 565km.

The city council spent $365,112

on fuel for its vehicles this financial

year and $382,572 last year.

It has teamed up with 12 organisations,

including Environment

Canterbury, for an electric

vehicle shared fleet scheme,

which the public can also use for

A SOMALIAN refugee who

stabbed two people after

kidnapping a pie delivery driver

has been denied parole again.

Zakariye Mohamed Hussein

was jailed for more than six

years, with a minimum nonparole

period of three years and

three months, for the 2012 incident

which started in Redwood

and ended in Hoon Hay.

His parole was denied at a

hearing this month, which Hussein

declined to attend.

Pie delivery driver Marteine

Robin, 42, who was kidnapped

and stabbed by Hussein, wanted

her attacker to remain in prison.

“He can stay right where he is,

it is the best place for him.

I don’t want to see him get

out as it seems the likelihood

of him re-offending

is pretty high,” she said.

Hussein’s sentence ends

on September 18 next

year – just days before Ms

Robin’s 43rd birthday.

“Happy birthday to me,

right?” she said.

“Every time I wash my shoulder

I can feel the scar [where she

was stabbed]. That is every day.”

Hussein has been undergoing

physiological treatment at an

undisclosed facility, a parole

hearing report revealed.

“He has remained in [withheld]

and his condition has

largely been stable. There have,

from time to time, been occasions

where Mr Hussein

(sic) has been violent

towards hospital staff, the

last one being in May of

this year,” the report said.

The drama started at

about 7am on March 15,

2012, when Hussein was

disturbed in the grounds

of Redwood School by

caretaker Noel Batstone.

Hussein chased Mr Batstone

and a teacher who barricaded

themselves inside a classroom

and phoned police.

In August last year, Mr Batstone

said he felt sorry for Hussein.

But on Tuesday, he told The

Star his opinion had changed.

“Keep him locked up. He

sounds like he is not ready to be

let back out,” he said.

After Mr Batstone and the

teacher escaped, Hussein,

hijacked Ms Robin’s van and

ordered her to drive. She told

him to “get the f*** out” of her

delivery truck. He then forced

her at knifepoint to drive him

across the city before stabbing

her in the shoulder.

“After he stabbed me, I asked

him what the f**k did you do

to my shoulder? He told me to

stop swearing. So I told him to

get f****d,” she told The Star on

Tuesday.

Ms Robin eventually managed

to escape when Hussein

was momentarily distracted

Partners in rebuild project

– and rebuilding lives

Two well-established Christchurch companies are

working together on one of the city’s most eagerly

anticipated rebuild projects, QEII.

Apollo Projects is the lead building contractor,

while Aotea Electric is carrying out design build

work on the electrical, automation, electrical for

mechanical, electrical for pool water services and data

communication work, as well as the installation of the

MATV, PA, and electric vehicle charging systems.

Following completion of the tender process in 2016,

construction began at the beginning of this year and

completion is expected by mid-2018.

Project manager for Aotea Electric, Adam Smithies,

says the relationship between the two companies has

been “really good, it’s great to be part of such a nostalgic

rebuild project. Everyone is focused on getting the job

done together,” he says.

Apollo Project’s Iain Ansell describes Aotea Electric

as a “professional company with an impressive track

record”.

“With large projects like this, there’s always the

potential for issues and conflicts, but with Aotea it’s

The new QEII rebuild under construction is progressing well.

been smooth sailing. It’s good when companies work

together and share the vision.”

This isn’t the only project the two companies are

partnering on, however. Both have recently become

sponsors of the Believe Foundation.

The foundation was established to provide lifechanging

opportunities and challenges for young

people whose lives have taken an unconventional path.

Approaching ‘decision points’ in their lives, most of

them lack role models to guide them in making critical

decisions about their future.

The aim of the foundation is to fund the youth to

partake in challenging events, and also to provide a

network of ‘mentors’ who will train and encourage them

in the lead-up to the challenges, and help prepare them

for employment at the completion of the challenge.

For many of the youngsters, it is likely that having

people believe in them will be a rare or new experience.

Last year, the Believe Foundation supported the Te

Rangatahi Tumanako Trust (The Youth Hope Trust)

and the St John of God Hauora Trust, who managed a

team of five young people to train for and compete in

Artist’s

impression

the Mototapu mountain bike race.

The race was a life-changing experience for the young

people, and all of them have continued to embrace the

positive life experiences of the Road to Motatapu, and

translate these to the challenges of everyday life.

Seeking sponsorship for another group of young

people to take part in this year’s race, the Believe

Foundation’s Tim Howe approached Robbie Venrooy

of Aotea Electric.

“We thought it was an amazing idea and we wanted

to get involved,” Robbie says.

“I spoke to my fellow directors and they said yes, they

were keen for the company to be sponsors.”

Apollo Projects director Craig Waghorn says they

were also very happy to sponsor the Believe Foundation

for the second year.

“It’s part of our company culture to support good

causes like this, and we saw this as an outstanding cause.

We are also pleased to have the mutual connection and

tie-in with Aotea on this.”

Helping settle ‘complex’

quake insurance claims

AS A new minister,

one of the biggest

priorities for me

has been getting

faster resolution

for people still

dealing with EQC and

insurance issues, nearly seven

years after the earthquakes.

For many of the people still

in this position here in Christchurch,

part of the problem is

that they have complex or difficult

claims. For those stuck in

this situation, it feels like they

are trapped in limbo. My priority

is making sure these people can

move on with their lives.

Part of that is making sure the

right support is available to help

them navigate what can be very

overwhelming and complex issues.

This is where the Residential

Advisory Service has been an

absolute godsend for people over

the last few years. The service

helps people navigate their claims

and gives people support and a

bit of case management to get

people through.

Since the earthquake, more

than 4500 people have had their

claims resolved by the RAS. Yet

under the previous Government,

this service had been due to close

in December due to a lack of

funding.

That’s not something our new

Government wants to see. We

know how important this service

is, and we know that we can’t

walk away from people while they

are still struggling.

When I was in Kaikoura recently

for the one-year anniversary, I

met with people who were using

the service. I heard how much of

an important lifeline it was. One

woman told me she had been at

the absolute end of her rope until

she started working with RAS.

She talked about how staff there

went above and beyond to help

her. That’s the approach our Government

wants to see continue.

That’s why we’ve announced

we will be extending the RAS

service until at least the middle of

next year. With new funding, the

service will be able to continue to

help the people who need it and

ensure people are getting access

to justice and a way to get their

claims sorted and get on with

their lives.

Regeneration

Seventy years on from

the Ballantynes fire,

survivors Lois Wheeler and

Marion Hooykaas had an

uncanny reunion

Donna Dawber – Lois

Wheeler was my mum’s friend

in Richmond RIP Vera Gibson.

Angel At Large – My mum

was in the Ballantynes fire.

She was 19. She saw so many

of her friends burn to death.

They locked the fire escapes and

wouldn’t let the girls in accounting

leave their posts. So many

unnecessary deaths. Her sister

worked in Beaths across the

road and watched too.

Richard Carrigan – Great

read. Mr and Mrs Wheeler were

friends of mum and dad growing

up. Major bit of Christchurch

history as well.

Jan Greig – I have the newspaper

of that terrible day.

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

Helen Cox – Such a terrible

tragedy but how lovely these

ladies have met.

Diane Rangi – I was threeyears-old

when it happened.

We lived in Spreydon. I can

remember it still.

Robyn Rodgers – I believe

my aunty was working as a

seamstress in Ballantynes, she

was probably their senior back

in those days.

Judy Bagnall – My mum

worked upstairs in Beaths across

the road and witnessed the

fire. They were evacuated too.

Think windows at Beaths were

breaking with the heat.

DUMPED: People continue to dump their rubbish in public

places like here in South Brighton Domain. ​

Higher fines for people

caught dumping rubbish in

public places has failed to

deter them from doing it

Leanne Rita Scaturro – In

Perth, every six months they

do a road side collection.

From whiteware

to deck chairs,

bikes, heaters, old

fences, anything. I

often pulled over and

grabbed something

I needed. Great way

of recycling and getting rid of

stuff that otherwise sits around.

A good clear out. And a good

service.

Mykel Holmes – Or make

landfills and (refuse) centres

realistic prices and these people

with no money might actually

dump it legally – surely

it’s cheaper than paying wages

for people to go pick it all up

then dump it at the same place?

Commonsense no?

Jacinta Roosing

– Check out the roads

in Riccarton. A family

moved out of a house

and left their crap on the

side of the road.

Heather Wilkins – Part of

the problem is a lack of rubbish

bins. Council thought in their

wisdom that if they took some

away, it would encourage people

to use a rubbish bin.

THE NEW

Government is full

steam ahead on

meeting its first

100-day plan.

That includes

significant announcements

from the minister

of housing, who has sought

a stocktake on the housing crisis.

This will include firm figures on

homelessness, the state of the

rental market and the decline of

home ownership.

We will certainly co-operate

with the compilation of this

report, as will the Otautahi

Community Housing Trust,

which now manages the city’s

social housing tenancies. We

have a considerable amount of

information on these issues due

to a number of initiatives we

are participating in with other

agencies, including Housing

First, a project which looks to

get people into a secure home,

before beginning to tackle

the other issues that led to

homelessness in the first place.

The Government

announcement has two areas

of focus which are significant

to Christchurch. The first is

cancelling the state housing

sell-off, and the other is setting

up KiwiBuild – and I think the

Lianne Dalziel

two are related. The cancelling

of the state house sell-off opens

up the possibility of dialogue on

progressing the exemplar rebuild

projects in Bryndwr and Shirley

that were agreed as part of the

land use recovery plan.

These were intended to

create well-designed urban

communities that increased

the number of affordable and

market-priced homes, without

diminishing the number of social

housing units. This would be a

It does seem more than unfair

seven years after the first earthquake

there are many still in that boat.

So the support needs to be there

SHOWS: The World Buskers Festival will feature performances from the Topp Twins, who will bring their classic brand of

Kiwi humour to the stage, and Urzila Carlson with her show Unacceptable; PHOTOS: WORLD BUSKERS FESTIVAL

Buskers back for 25th

• By Bridget Rutherford

COMEDIANS, daredevils,

dancers, singers and acrobats

will hit the streets in

January to celebrate the 25th

anniversary of the World

Buskers Festival.

Fifty-five performers

representing 14 countries

will descend on the city for

the annual 10-day festival

from January 18-28.

Festival producer Tim

Bain said its programme

was about creating a line-up

which reflected the past,

while at the same time

looked forward to the future.

“It’s daring, bold, cheeky,

hilarious and world class,”

he said.

To celebrate 25 years, there

will be five headline shows.

After making it through

to the America’s Got Talent

final last year, The Boy with

Tape on His Face (right) is

coming home to premier his

new ideas.

Urzila Carlson will

perform her new show

Unacceptable and the Topp

Twins will entertain the

crowds with their classic

Kiwi humour.

A Night at the Musicals,

featuring Le Gateau

Chocolat, will bring musical

entertainment, as will

Crossdresser for Christ,

featuring Ginger Minj from

RuPaul’s Drag Race.

New features will include a

Buskers Bar and Night Food

Market at the Arts Centre

every night, a Cabaret Club

at the Great Hall, and the

Laugh Lounge at Sixty6 on

Peterborough.

Buskers will also perform

at the Friday Night Food

Market in Cathedral Square

and in City Mall at

lunchtimes outside The

Crossing.

Festival director

Melissa Haberfield

encouraged people to

embrace the festival and

celebrate its 25th birthday.

“For 10 days and 11

nights, our city becomes

a playground filled with

laughter, colour and fun,

as street artists and night

show performers entertain

hundreds of thousands of

locals and visitors in a

festival like no other.”

There will be

13 performance

sites, inside

and outdoors,

including the

Arts Centre,

Christ’s

College,

Christchurch

Art Gallery,

New Brighton

and Lyttelton

among others.

More than

200 free day

performances

will take place

around the city.

The festival

will conclude

with the Buskers

Best Bits show

at the Isaac

Theatre Royal on

January 28.

The 24th World

Buskers Festival,

held in January,

drew a quarter of a

million people.

New Full-time Tech Jobs

Created in NZ in the last year

*2017 TIN Report

Tech is New Zealand’s third-largest export sector and is growing fast with over 9000

new jobs expected to be created over the next two years*. To fuel this growth, NZ

needs more people with a grounding in tech to meet the rapid expansion within this

exciting and varied area, which crosses into many industries.

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

enabling more people to enter this dynamic and diverse sector.

The SHIFT Programme

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

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

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

Dunedin, this one year programme offers relevant and current content to ensure you are well equipped to work within the

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

Partnering With Industry

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

of core computing skills, as well as communication and employability skills required in today’s collaborative workplaces.

The current Christchurch cohort, which started

in July, have just finished two collaborative studio

projects; making an app to track native planting in

New Zealand and coding a small computer to create

a personal bus schedule monitor. These projects are

tailored to complement their preferred specialist tech

area and enhance their employability.

Opportunities

With tech roles existing in nearly every area from

aviation to zoology, career possibilities are extensive.

Through the SHIFT programme, learners can focus

on software design and development, or allied roles,

such as business analyst, web designer, project

manager, user experience designer, technical writer,

sales and client support . . . and the list goes on.

SIGNAL’s SHIFT Programme transitions graduates from

any discipline into tech. Many new and mature graduates

are considering tech as a viable and lucrative career

option and this is increasing as the range of roles within

tech becomes more widely known.

Diversity is welcomed; in the current Christchurch

cohort, 80 percent are women, and two learners in the SHIFT programme have young families. SHIFT is also well suited

to new graduates who may be looking for that X factor to boost their employability. The tech sector can potentially offer

flexible hours and work locations – making this an exciting and viable option for those with families.

Situated at 181 High Street, SIGNAL Christchurch is in the heart of the growing Innovation Precinct.

*NZ Tech Digital Skills Survey 2017

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

ISAAC’S STORY:

With a Masters in Geology and 10 years

experience working in the mining industry,

Isaac re-assessed his career goals, wanting a

career that was more flexible and portable.

‘I saw the SHIFT programme as an exciting

opportunity to add specific tech skills to my

knowledge base, so I can translate those skills

into a new career.’ For his industry project,

Isaac is working with Stantec NZ to represent

aerial drone footage.

The school-friendly course hours have allowed

me to carry on with my before and after school

duties, and this has really helped my family and

my career training.’

FELICIA’S STORY:

Felicia has a computer engineering degree

from the Philippines where she worked as an

Air Traffic Controller for 12 years before coming

to New Zealand.

‘SHIFT will enable and empower me to reignite

my programming skills to eventually help me

become work-ready. I am invested to take as

much knowledge and practical skills from this

course and apply them in more meaningful

ways.’

She has really enjoyed the studio projects

so far and is looking forward to working with

industry early next year.

Our People

Constable Ben Rutherford, 27, has become a well-known figure on the Canterbury Police Facebook

page. He spoke to Bridget Rutherford about breaking down the barrier between police and

the public through humour

You first appeared on the

police Facebook page when

you made a young boy’s day by

delivering him a photo. Can

you tell me the story behind

that?

I was on an operation based

out of Hanmer. I just took a

photo of the sun rising near

Culverden and sent it to the

media team in Wellington and

asked if we could post it on

Facebook encouraging people

to drive safely on State Highway

7. Then I got a phone call from

the media team saying they had

heard from someone who said

her young son really liked the

photo and wanted a copy. I got in

touch with her and she said her

son wanted to be a police officer,

so I printed the photo and got

it framed and dropped it off the

next week. He was blown away,

I showed him all the switches

and dials in the police car and he

wanted to know what I did and

how long I’ve been in the police.

I can remember being that age

and knowing I wanted to be a

policeman but I didn’t know anyone

who was a cop, and finding

somebody who was and wanting

to ask all these questions.

What’s your job?

I’m on a specialist traffic group

and we do a lot of road safety,

attending crashes, speed enforcement

all that sort of stuff. But we

go to frontline jobs as well. We’re

district-wide and we get taskings.

So if we got complaints about

people going too fast outside

schools, we will go and sit the

police car outside the school at

8.15am, and it’s amazing the affect

that has on people.

How long have you been in

the police and what made you

want to join?

Four-and-a-half years. I

couldn’t do a desk job, I’m just

far too hyperactive. I like being

outside and meeting people. I

didn’t want to do a desk job that

required a degree, although I did

go to university before I joined

the police. I just wanted to be out

there doing it, plus I really like

having a positive influence on

people. People who are continuously

offending, there’s got to be

a reason why they’re doing that.

So I like talking to them and

finding out why and trying to

help them.

What did you study at uni?

I went to Lincoln and did sport

and recreation management.

I’m originally from Tauranga,

but I got a hockey scholarship to

Lincoln. I tried to join the police

straight out of school but

I’d just had a knee

operation and

they said

you’re

young

and

you

need

time

for your

leg to get

back to

normal

strength. So

they said go

get some life

experience and

come back.

Did you

come straight to

Christchurch when you

graduated?

No, I went to Counties Manukau

in South Auckland on

general duties for two years.

It was good, I was thrown in the

deep end. The training is really

good, how you get trained at

college is actually what you deal

with on the street. My wife Sarah

and I were doing long distance

then we got engaged and we

had to make the decision where

we were going to live our lives.

She’s from Christchurch and

I’d studied here so I transferred

back and went to Ashburton for

about eight months, then came

up here.

Do you play a lot of hockey in

your spare time?

Yes, it just consumes the

winter. I try and

keep fit and

our garden

at home

is pretty

so

I spend

a lot of

time in

shifted from Fitzgerald Avenue to 413 Tuam

Street, (on the corner of Saxon St) where

many of their glass works are displayed in a

‘real life’ setting in the new showroom that

has been set up like a home.

You can browse round the

showroom and get ideas, and

at the same time, watch the

glass and work being crafted

in the workshop.

The possibilities for

incorporating glass into the

home are endless,” Alona

says.

“Clients can

have imagery

such as photos put on to the

glass. This is printed on, so

it’s permanent. Or they can

come up with any design they

desire, and we will produce it

for them. For painted glass we

use Resene paints, which are

mixed by Resene in the client’s

choice of colour. AJ Creative

Glass and Resene both give

a 10-year warranty on their

products.

“Clients have control of their design

from start to finish,” Alona says, “and we

encourage that as it is their home they should

love what they live with.”

The glass items can be

shipped anywhere across

New Zealand, with the

company also having facilities

in Auckland for measure and

installation.

“We are now looking at more

avenues for using glass in the

home. For example, we are

upcycling furniture by adding

painted

and sandblasted glass to

items and bringing them

back to life.”

To see many of the ways glass can be used

creatively, call into their new showroom at

413 Tuam St, with plenty of off-street parking,

phone 338 3733. Check out their website,

www.ajcreativeglass.co.nz or ‘like’ them on

Facebook.

Every now and then you can also catch the

AJ Creative team at the Christchurch Home

Show where they display samples of their

glass creations.

The Star

Our People

Breaking down barriers between public and police

•From page 23

I played age group representative

hockey for Tauranga and

some really junior New Zealand

hockey age group stuff. This

year I played in the Canterbury

senior men’s team. I used to do

a bit of coaching but it’s quite

hard fitting it all in with playing

and shift work. The police are

very understanding, and they

promote having a good healthy

work life balance. If you’re playing

reasonably high level sport,

they will accommodate it.

You and Constable Sam

Crozier were snapped strutting

your stuff in the Cup Day fashion

parade. How did you get

roped into that?

It was a stitch up (laughs).

Inspector Waretini – he didn’t so

much as ask, it was more that he

told us. Sam and I got this email

saying we had to report to this

tent at this time. And I was like

‘I know what this is’. We got a lot

of stick from our workmates for

it, but it was good fun, I’ve got

no shame. I think Sam enjoyed it

more than I did, he got more into

it. About 10 people recognised

me on the day from the video we

did just prior to Cup and Show

Week where I did the thing with

the hands. It’s from a movie

called Talladega Nights with Will

Ferrell where he’s trying to give

an interview and he keeps trying

to put his hands on the microphone

and the reporter keeps

saying ‘can you put your hands

down’, and he says ‘I don’t know

where to put my hands’.

The Canterbury Police

Facebook page is very engaging.

Why do you think it’s so

important to get people seeing

that side of police?

It’s really good at breaking

down barriers – we are people

too. But behind every post, there

is a message. It’s breaking down

police being seen as strictly law

enforcement or the fun police.

We like to show we can have a

bit of fun as well. Yes, there’s a

time to be serious, but we like to

have a good time – and it works.

The fashion Cup Day video had

386,000 views and it was all

around the world. My family in

the United Kingdom were sharing

it.

Is there any case or moment

that has stuck with you from

the job?

Probably my first fatal car

crash, which was in Auckland.

I really struggled. The guy who

died was the same age as me,

he was on his way to work and

wasn’t supposed to work that day

but his colleague had applied for

COMPETITIVE: Most of Ben Rutherford’s spare time is spent

playing hockey.

PHOTO: GEOFF SOPER

leave and had been denied, so

this guy offered to work the shift.

I saw me in him – that’s something

I would do. He just had

his birthday and he got hit by a

drink driver and killed. I was the

first car there, and he was still

alive. I crawled into the car to try

and keep him alive but because

of the way the car was bent, we

couldn’t move him. So he died

from asphyxia. That took a lot

to get over, probably because it

was my first one. The most recent

was in Ashburton where a man

was stabbed to death. I was the

first car there and he had two

stab wounds. I basically put my

fingers in his chest and did CPR

until the ambulance arrived. We

thought we had done really well

to keep him alive, but he died in

the hallway. We’ve got a (court)

trial for that next year.

On a lighter note, do any

shenanigans happen here in the

office?

It’s a very respectful environment

because we’ve got such

diversity. There is the occasional

time if you leave your notebook

on the printer, it might be found

stuck on the roof. Everybody’s

pretty quick to point out to you

if you end up on the tv news or

in the paper, you owe them a

chocolate cake.

You might owe your

colleagues a cake after this.

So your family is from the UK

aren’t they?

Yes, my parents moved here

in 1988. My dad’s parents were

missionaries in Kenya, so Dad

grew up there, and after his

parents had finished their stint

there, they moved back to the

UK. That’s where he met my

mum. I was lucky enough to

go to Kenya on a mission trip

with school for six weeks to help

there. To see where my dad grew

up and experience a different

culture was awesome. My wife

and I went over to the UK and

Europe last year to experience a

bit of an OE.

How did you two meet?

Sarah and I met through

hockey down here, she’s a keen

hockey player, she’s better than I

am. She plays for the Canterbury

Cats. Her parents here in

Christchurch have taken me in

like an adopted son.

However,

the council

has decided

it is now time

to carry out

the remaining

earthquake repairs

in tandem with

work to upgrade the

facilities to make them

more user-friendly.

Council manager of Western Area

Recreation Nigel Cox said while there

would be some disruption for people in

the short term the work would be well

managed and was definitely necessary.

“We’re confident the improvements

we’re going to be carrying out will be

really noticeable and beneficial for the

thousands of people who regularly use

these very popular centres.”

Both buildings will be strengthened to

the latest New Zealand Building Code

standards.

Pools will be repaired and the indoor

hydroslide will be replaced at Jellie Park.

Pioneer’s wave chamber will also be

repaired and there will be improved air-

rooms and improvements to the fitness

areas.

Repairs and improvements will include

fixing cracks, painting and repairs to

flooring, walls and ceilings as well as

upgrading fire systems and replacing

wet area flooring with a non-slip hardwearing

material.

The work at Pioneer will start in the

pool area and at Jellie Park the first

project will be the spa, sauna and steam

room.

Phase one of the work is expected to

be complete by December 2019. Work

on Jellie Park’s sport pool and re-roofing

Province, 1950s

Bottom left: Chairman Mao

Zedong shakes hands with

Rewi Alley, 1966.

December 2, 2017 marks the 120th

anniversary of the birth of Rewi Alley at

Springfield.

To celebrate the occasion, under

the auspices of the Rewi Alley 120th

Anniversary Commemoration Committee

Canterbury, 10 Canterbury organisations,

along with Rewi’s family, have come

together to highlight Rewi’s legacy.

Delegations totalling about 80 people from

China, including 17 from Rewi’s Chinese

family, as well as about 100 from around

New Zealand, are coming to Christchurch

to take part in commemoration activities.

Through these activities it is hoped to

present to a new generation the story of

this remarkable New Zealander, who had

a huge love and respect for the Chinese

people.

Rewi Alley went to China in 1927,

where he lived until his death in 1987.

His first job in Shanghai involved being

a fireman and factory

inspector. This opened his

eyes to the appalling living

and working conditions of

the ordinary people. Being the

quintessential Kiwi bloke he

was, he rolled his sleeves up and

went to work.

Over the next 60 years, through

civil unrest and Japanese invasion,

he toiled tirelessly, helping during

famine and flood, setting up

industrial co-operatives, establishing

schools and giving the rest of his

life to improving the conditions of

its people. He is one of the 10 most

revered foreigners in China.

Canterbury Museum benefitted from

his donations of many beautiful artefacts

(www.rewialleyart.nz), collected in China

over many decades.

Commemoration activities

the general public are invited to

attend are:

• Friday, December 1: 9.30am unveiling of a plaque to Rewi by Councillor Jimmy

Chen on behalf of the Mayor of Christchurch, at his former high school (Boys’

High) at the Christchurch Arts Centre, followed by a visit to a photographic

display on his life in one of the largest rooms in that same school. This display

runs until December 2, 10am-5pm

• A display at the Canterbury Museum of some of the Chinese artefacts Rewi

donated to that museum www.rewialleyart.nz

• Saturday,December 2: 10am: opening of the Garden of Reflection in

Chamberlain Park, Amberley by the Governor-General of New Zealand, Her

Excellency the Rt Hon Dame Patsy Reddy.

• 2pm: Commemoration ceremony and display of the memorial erected

20years ago at Rewi Alley Memorial & Park, Springfield.

4 Law/PuzzLes

Have you thought about what care you

want to receive when you reach the end of

your life? During the course of our lives

we expend an enormous amount of energy

planning where we want to live, and what

we want to achieve during our lifetimes,

but we don’t give much time or thought to

what we would like to happen at the end

of our lives.

If you have a major health event that

robs you of the ability to make your wishes

known to your family, or to the health

professionals responsible for your

care, taking some time now to

discuss what you want at

the end of your life will

provide vital guidance

if your loved ones

have to make those

decisions for you.

An Advance Care

Plan or Advance

Directive (“Advance

Care Plan”) is a way to

help you communicate

to your loved ones your

wishes about your future

health care. It will help your

loved ones and your health care

providers to understand what is important

to you and what treatment you do or do

not want in the event that you are unable

to communicate with those around you.

Under the Code of Health and Disability

Services Consumers’ Rights you have the

right to use an Advance Care Plan to make

your health care wishes known. Examples

might be the desire not to receive blood

transfusions, be resuscitated or kept alive

with the use of life support systems. The

Code gives a person, who has capacity to

make decisions for themselves, the right

to make an Advance Care Plan. However,

you should be aware that at present

an Advance Care Plan has no specific

statutory status in New Zealand, and is

AdvAnCE

CARE

plans

therefore not enforceable at law and may

not be followed.

When deciding on whether to follow

your Advance Care Plan, your health care

professional will try to ensure that:

• you had capacity at the time the

Advance Care Plan was made;

• you made your Advance Care Plan of

your own free will;

• you were informed and understood

the decisions you were making;

and your Advance Care Plan

applies to the current

circumstances, whatever

they may be.

The trickiest part

of an Advance

Care Plan may be

discussing your

wishes with your

loved ones. Many

of us don’t like to

give much thought to

the decisions we may be

called on to make should our

loved ones be ill and unable to

communicate their wishes.

Talking about your Advance Care Plan

with your loved ones is an important

conversation and should be an integral

part of your estate planning. Sharing your

wishes will give you all peace of mind in

knowing that should the worst come to

pass you will have equipped your loved

ones with the information they need to

make the right decisions for you.

At Harmans we have experience dealing

with estate planning and can help you to

formalise your wishes. Give our Senior’s

team a call on 03 352 2293 to arrange an

appointment to discuss your situation.

Decision making

By Ali Scott

A mother and her

young son were

driving through

an old part of

town when a big

earthquake struck.

Mum managed to

pull over to the side of

the road and park safely

as the shaking subsided.

They sat quietly. And then the young

boy started to shake and his mother

could see he was struggling with

emotions and words at the same time.

Between catching his breath and holding

it, he said, “I want to be brave but I can’t

be brave because I want to cry. And I

want to cry but I can’t because I want to

be brave.”

And his mother said, “It doesn’t matter

which one you do first,” and then when

the young boy thought it didn’t matter,

he did what came easily and he cried.

That night for dinner, (and this was

a boy who didn’t eat his vegetables), he

asked if he could have broccoli, “because

that’s what brave boys eat”.

Sometimes there are situations in life

where we need to choose, situations

where it seems we can’t do both. Stay or

go? Travel or settle? Head or heart? Cry

or be brave? And when we think about

what is more important to us, we can

end up going nowhere, like the Pushmi

Pullyu, the fictitious llama-like character

with a head at each end pulls itself in

opposite directions and ends up going

nowhere.

Another name for this problem is a

values conflict. Like being stuck between

a rock and a hard place, going round

in circles or banging our head against a

brick wall, when all we are trying to do

is work out what we value and what is

most important to us.

At life’s transition points, such as

the nest emptying, a new job, health

challenges or relationships changing, we

are often in situations where we need

to work out what is most important

for us, what we are valuing right now,

because as we grow we change. When

Brave

Boys eat

Broccoli

– or how we

know what’s most

important

we are young we value

excitement and

challenge over peace

and harmony. And

when we are older

some of

what is

important

to us

changes. You

know you have

reached ‘maturity’

when a cup of tea and a

lie down will fulfil your heart’s desire.

So, as we go through life’s transitions

and are faced with those big decisions,

what do we do?

What was so lovely about the mother

saying it didn’t matter, was that the

child forgot about what was the ‘right’

or ‘wrong’ thing to choose and relaxed

enough to do what came easily. Because

it actually did matter – the child needed

to cry and then be brave, so brave that

eating broccoli was a cinch.

So, here are three techniques for

sorting that values conflict and making

space between the rock and the hard

place.

1. Just pretend, for a moment, that it

doesn’t matter. Pretend that the clouds in

the sky are more important, or the dog

on the street or the bird on the fence is

more important. And in that moment

when you forget and relax, you will

remember something you know is really

important.

2. Send those thoughts outside to play

because the idea that they are opposites

and at odds is an illusion. They are,

in fact, connected. You can’t be brave

unless you know when to be afraid. And

crying takes a certain kind of bravery.

Let them play away. And it may be that

an even brighter and better idea arrives

back on your doorstep.

3. If after pretending, and cloud

Ali Scott

gazing, and even after the playing away it

still feels like the Pushmi Pullyu, you can

toss a coin for it. Not because it doesn’t

matter and anything is better than the

tension and inertia. But because, in that

brief moment when the coin is in the air,

you suddenly know what you are hoping

for.

Resuscitation Council GUIDELINE

9.3.2 (2014) for the Resuscitation

of a Drowning Victim states

‘Compression-only CPR is not

the recommended resuscitation

method. The primary cause of

cardiac arrest in drowning is a lack

of breathing. Compression-only CPR

circulates oxygen-poor blood and

fails to address the victim’s need for

immediate ventilation’.

RE-START is the easiest, most

accurate way to deliver correct,

repeatable ventilation with no risk or

fatigue to the rescuer.

her experiences there and about changing direction with

her new business.

Why did you get into that business and

how long did you own it for?

Nor’Wester was the most challenging and defining

thing I have done to date. During our 17 years of

ownership, it tested every ounce of me mentally,

emotionally and physically. Timing is everything. My

brother was home from Perth after working in the

mines, I was ready for a change after working in local

government for 17 years, and my husband Tim needed

less physically demanding work from his building

business, having been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

We saw a gap in the market, the ideal building came up

for sale, we attracted the talented Andrew Brown as head

chef and the rest is history. Experiences in the restaurant

were far reaching and require a book not a Q&A to cover!

Generally though, creating a restaurant from scratch

with no industry experience was a big undertaking and

a steep learning curve. Stepping up to food and wine

challenges and competitions tested and honed our skills

and systems, and we were rewarded often. Buying out our

business partners in 2005 and managing the exit in 2014

were all valuable experiences.

What made it so successful?

While we were hands-on owners, the staff were

our backbone. Over the years we worked with many

outstanding individuals. Some came fully qualified,

others we grew into professionals as their potential was

realised. We involved our staff in a lot of our decision

making, and were always keen to attract people who

knew more than us.

Customer feedback was king at Nor’Wester. It made us

the great restaurant we were. We were only as good as our

last service, and I was always grateful for the customers

who took the time to notify us of their good and not so

good experiences.

Trading

challenges

Hospitality is not for

the faint-hearted. We

did a lot of behindthe-scenes

stuff that people

might never imagine a

restaurant would do. The work

around defining our culture,

our training and development and

food safety programmes, food and wine

training, and recycling initiatives, they were all

pretty special.

Why did you decide to sell that business

and start a new, different type of

enterprise?

The last four years of the restaurant were very tough,

especially as competition continued to grow. Restaurant

margins generally are very small, but with fewer patrons,

ours went into the red. The Christchurch earthquakes

kept us afloat for a period. The influx of people from

Christchurch and the destruction of many restaurants

in the city left provincial restaurants with opportunity.

It gave us a boost for a time, but slowly the reality of not

enough ‘bums on seats’ to sustain our level of product

and service came back to haunt us, and it took its toll. I

had neither the energy or the will to make the changes

necessary for us to continue. I would have had to cut

the guts out of the place to make it viable, and I had no

appetite to do this.

What have been the challenges in

starting something new?

Getting back in the saddle so soon was the hardest.

Tim and I would have liked a year to recuperate, but

the opportunity of grabbing the site we are in now was

too good to let go. We sold the restaurant in June 2014

and began work on Mumma T Trading Lounge in the

November and opened March 2015. We have settled our

shop footprint, and have stock levels to where I want

them. With the bricks and mortar phase settled, we are

looking forward to stepping up our marketing strategy –

there is much to do in 2018.

What do you find

fulfilling about

owning and running a

business?

It may sound strange, but I love the

challenge around self-discipline. I work

quickly to find remedies to problems I face.

Whether that be tracking down a person with the

skill-set I don’t have, or reading a book for knowledge.

Being self-employed means you have to be a self-starter, a

self-manager, a self-discipliner. It’s not for everyone.

In saying that, though, I am a very ‘unstructured’

person. Routine doesn’t sit easily with me, so I love the

fact that I can design a work programme that fits my

body clock and rhythm. Half the time I couldn’t even tell

you what day of the week it is, and that suits me fine. Tim

and I were unable to have a family (that’s another long

story), and I guess without dependents we are able to go

with the flow pretty easily. Our health and wellbeing is a

big one for both of us. I no longer smoke or drink coffee

and I eat three meals a day. I enjoy wine, sometimes

too much, other than that I lead a pretty, healthy

uncomplicated lifestyle. Tim is amazing in managing his

MS. It is great that he can still be involved in this business

at his pace, something he would struggle to do if working

for someone else.

What advice would you give anyone

50-plus who is thinking of changing

direction?

The answer always lies within you. If the opportunity

before you really excites you then that is a great start. I

then ask, if I don’t do this, how will I feel when I look

back knowing I had this opportunity but didn’t take it.

In addition, I ask, am I prepared to run the risk of this

failing? Can I bear that risk? If the answer is yes to all

that, then go for it.

8 HealtHy eating

By Lea Stening,

Dietitian

If we want to enjoy

the company of

friends and family

as we get older, then

it is important that

we look after their

health, as well as our

own, as we age.

We can do this by

not only serving them

less alcohol and more

healthy foods at our parties and

gatherings this Christmas, but also by giving

those we love gifts that promote better health.

Tips for healthier giving

FooD giFtS

Instead of always giving boxes of chocolates, shortbread,

cakes or truffles that can be very high in saturated fat

and energy, why not try something new this year? While

lowering cholesterol levels, and reducing weight and the

risk of diabetes usually comes down to how much of these

foods we have, the following ideas may certainly head you

and your friends in a healthier direction:

• Halve the number of mini Christmas mince pies you

usually give, bundle them up in cellophane and bulk up

the parcel with cherries.

• Turkish delight or licorice

• Dried fruits or combination of dried fruits, nuts and

seeds (unsalted)

• A basket of fresh seasonal fruit

• A basket of cherries

• A mixed basket of anti pasta foods such as jars of

sun-dried tomatoes, gherkins, pickled onions, tinned

oysters, salmon, fruit paste and fruit logs

• If you want a cheese theme, choose feta, Camembert

or Brie, but you could also add a variety of hummus or

pestos.

• Try a seafood basket such as canned oysters, mussels,

tuna, salmon, crabmeat and shrimps, complete with a

lemon or two.

• Bottles of avocado or olive oil – you can get these now

spiked with flavours such as orange, lemon and lime.

Here’S TO

a HeaLTHIer

happy Christmas

• A variety of mustards, onion marmalades, pickles or

relish to accompany meat or vegetable dishes

• A variety of herbal teas or a selection of coffee

beans

• Replace the crisps with toasts, pumpernickel

bread or whole wheat crackers.

• A selection of tomato sauces or oil-based

dressings

FitneSS iDeaS

To encourage people to get fitter you could give the

following:

• A gym membership or membership to a sports club

• A basket containing a drink bottle, gym towel,

pedometer, sports toiletries e.g. deodorant, sunscreen or

flowing soap

• Sports gear e.g. rackets, balls, hula hoops, swing ball,

golf balls, golf towels, roller blades, swimming goggles,

knee or elbow protectors etc.

• Sports clothing, sun hats and sun visors, beach bags and

towels, vouchers for sports shops

• Lessons for golf, tennis, squash, horse riding, cycling,

swimming, coaching in athletics, rugby or netball.

PamPering treatS

Busy people often need to just re-connect with

their bodies, to value the bits that still work and to

de-stress and look after their mental health. Gift

ideas could include:

• Facials, pedicures, massages, nail treatments,

spa treatments

• Baskets of skincare products

• Vouchers to their favourite hairdresser

• Magazine subscriptions and coffee

vouchers

• Dinner for two and a night away

• Service vouchers so they can save

time and energy; they might cover

jobs such as babysitting, house

and car cleaning, dry cleaning,

lawn and garden maintenance.

giFtS to heLP the LeSS

Fortunate

If your family or friends feel

fortunate this Christmas and would like to give a gift that

benefits the less fortunate you might also like to donate to

Oxfam. In this way your generosity can benefit the health

and lives of others in developing countries. Here are some

examples of what your donation can give to those less

fortunate:

• A pair of chickens $15

• A goat $47

• Clean water for 25 people $45

• Food hamper $28

• Christmas honey bees $21

• A pig $40

• Build a toilet $50

• Solar energy $58

Visit www.oxfam.org.nz for more details.

Also don’t forget the City Mission this Christmas. Their

food bank works hard to give Christmas dinner to the

needy and food parcels to those less fortunate not only at

Christmas but all year round.

Parkinson’s is a condition that affects

more than 13,000 New Zealand. One per

cent of Kiwi adults over the age of 60 have

the disease, but it can affect anyone of any

age.

However, while there are no known

cures, and drugs treat only some of the

issues, exercise and movement have been

shown to significantly improve the lives of

those who have Parkinson’s, ExerciseNZ

chief executive Richard Beddie says.

“What’s important is that exercise needs

intensity and also a cognitive function –

engaging the mind and the body – to have

the best effects. So, things such as dancing,

or workouts with certain types of agility

components, can be the most effective,”

Mr Beddie says.

“People with Parkinson’s should get

good advice, work with their doctor or

physio, and then an exercise professional

that has specialist training. Starting

exercise early after diagnosis is key for the

best outcomes.

“Parkinson’s is a progressive,

neurological disease, with no cure.

Symptoms and progression can be

managed, as exercise helps,” he says.

Regular

exercise can

improve lives

for people

with Parkinson’s

“Even 20 minutes a day of gentle exercise

can help people. Exercise increases the

body’s response to dopamine cells in the

brain, thus slowing the progression of the

disease in some people, and helping to

manage the symptoms in others.”

Symptoms of Parkinson’s include lack

of balance, tremors, stiffness or rigidity,

and slowness of movement known as

bradykinesia.

“Balance exercises assist with reducing

falls,” Mr Beddie says. “People with

Parkinson’s are at greater risk of falls.

Exercise activities such as walking or

dancing are steps in the right direction for

people living with Parkinson’s disease.”

Note: There is no cure but there is

a range of treatments for Parkinson’s

diesease. Scientists and researchers agree

patients benefit from physical therapy.

While Parkinson’s itself is not considered

fatal, people can die from complications of

the disease.

Pensioners amazed

by new hearing aids

Hearing aids have historically been

something most people have avoided for

as long as possible. On average, a person

experiencing hearing difficulties will

delay seeking help in this regard for over

seven years. Imagine enduring any other

medical complaint for so long!

In New Zealand, one in six people

have some degree of hearing difficulty.

Over the age of 60, more than half the

population are living with a significant

hearing reduction. As the main first sign

of this is a drop in speech clarity, it can

easily be blamed on other people not

speaking properly, the TV sound being

unclear, or just too much social noise

causing the problem.

A leading Danish hearing aid

manufacturer has just launched a

brand-new range of instruments that

are amazing pensioners with hearing

difficulties around the world. These

incredibly discreet devices are so

comfortable, you can forget you are

wearing them. Hear Again, the newly

opened hearing clinic at The Hub,

Hornby, have been fitting these devices to

their many very satisfied clients with huge

success.

Nick D. aged 78, describes his

experience.

“I was reluctant to have my hearing

tested as I really didn’t want to get hearing

aids,” he says. “It was only when my

granddaughter said she was concerned

that I was missing out on family fun that

I thought I should check it out. We have a

big family and when they all get together,

it becomes too noisy for me. I just take

myself off into another room.”

Nick had a FREE hearing check at

Hear Again, which confirmed he had a

reduction in his hearing causing social

noise to be a problem for him. After being

provided with a pair of the new hearing

aids he cannot believe the difference.

“It’s just like I’ve got my ears back

again. Nobody can see I’ve got the hearing

aids in and they feel so comfortable, I

forget they are there!” says Nick, “I can

hear so clearly now, the kids can’t get

away with anything! The whole family are

so pleased!”

Neil Hardisty, NZAS Audiometrist, sees

results like these every day at Hear Again.

Neil has been expertly overcoming

hearing difficulties for residents of

Christchurch since moving here from the

UK in 2009. He is frequently praised for

his limitless patience, wonderful caring

nature and ability to solve problems other

clinicians have deemed impossible. Neil is

never satisfied until you are. His expertise

coupled with this very latest technology

makes for a winning combination.

Hear Again offer FREE no-obligation

initial hearing assessments. If you, or

any of your loved ones have noticed any

difficulties with your hearing, this can be

quickly and painlessly checked for you at

The Hub, 418 Main South Road, Hornby.

If you already have hearing aids from any

manufacturer, we will give them a FREE

5 star service for you to ensure they are in

tip-top condition. Call 03 974 1658.

We look forward to delighting you with

our service and help you to rejoin the

conversation.

Price – Ford Escape Titanium, $53,490

Fuel usage – 8.6l/100km

By Ross Kiddie

Escape has been a

popular brand for

Ford New Zealand.

That being the

case, I was surprised

when the name

of the sport utility

vehicle was dropped

in favour of Kuga. The

latter also sold well, but

now Ford has reverted back

to Escape, the latest name change

also coinciding with a new release.

New

release

with a familiar

name

Those who do relate to the old Escape will be aware of

its pedigree; it was a model shared similarly with Mazda

(Tribute) in New Zealand and had its origins in Taiwan.

The new Escape is totally different. It is now sourced

from Europe – Spain to be exact, and unlike its V6

predecessor it has only four cylinders, but there are many

varying engine types – diesel and petrol and in 1.5-litre

or 2-litre capacity. The range is extensive, with seven

models starting from $37,990, some offered in fourwheel-drive.

The test car was Titanium-badged and sits in the

line-up at $53,490; there is only one model with a higher

ticket and that is the diesel-powered version with the

same specification ($54,990).

The 2-litre petrol, all-wheel-drive variant is certainly a

worthy choice. The Escape in this form is a cross between

the traditional SUV and a sports car, that comment

simply because of its engine output – it is rated at 178kW

and 345Nm.

That’s mostly due to the turbocharging system

fitted to the twin-camshaft, 16-valve unit; it offers

significant boost at a low operating area. Peak

power arrives at just 5500rpm, while maximum

torque is available all the way from 2000rpm to

4500rpm. The significance of those figures is the

punchy way the engine works – it is feisty and lively,

yet it delivers with little audible sound.

If you also factor in the way power is transferred

through a silky-smooth, six-speed automatic gearbox,

the driveline is structured for quick momentum with a

responsive nature.

The Escape in this form will accelerate from a standstill

in 8sec and will complete an overtaking time of 4.9sec to

make 120km/h from 80km/h. My comments about sports

car performance aren’t an exaggeration.

Ford is quite proud of its Ecoboost range of engines;

they have been developed not so much for the

performance I’ve just commented on, but they also stand

out for their economy.

As it turned out, I drove the new Escape at city speeds

for a fair chunk of my evaluation and that wasn’t kind to

the economy, with the fuel usage readout listing around

10.6-litres per 100km (27mpg) when I took the car back

to the dealership.

That’s quite distant from Ford’s combined average

cycle claim of 8.6l/100km (33mpg), but that’s put into

perspective when you take into account the 6.2l/100km

(46mpg) sitting instantaneously at a steady 100km/h, the

engine turning over at just 1750rpm.

The evaluation car was riding on sport specification

Continental tyres (235/45 x 19in). With their wide

footprint and formidable reputation there is a lot of

steering feel and strong self-centering feel within the

steering mechanism. Turn-in is direct and accuracy

within the handling process is positive.

I particularly like the way the Escape handles, and that

doesn’t surprise me. I’m a big European Ford fan, and the

way the designers engineer balance and handling ability

into the chassis of all their varying model styles is a credit

to them.

The Escape is also fitted with state-of-the-art gear for

comfort, convenience and safety. Some of the major items

include full leather trim with heated front seats, satellite

navigation, full-length electric sunroof, voice recognition

communication and infotainment, and radar cruise

control. Of course, it is also five-star safety rated.

I was a little ambivalent when I picked up the Escape;

I knew that its engine wouldn’t live up to the thrill of

the old Volvo-derived, 2.5-litre, turbo five-cylinder unit

found in some variants of the old Kuga, which is still one

of my favourite engines. That being the case, the Escape’s

2-litre engine had to really work hard to win me over and

I should have known it wouldn’t disappoint. Its honesty,

power outputs and generally quiet operating manner

make it a real honey.

Just as well, then, that the rest of the vehicle has

the quality to support it – the entire package is quite

outstanding. It will certainly lure Escape buyers of old,

and those who are contemplating trading up from Kuga.

Gardening

STRIKING: Marigolds in full bloom. They flower annually.

Still time to plant

IF YOU haven’t got your summer

planting finished it’s not too late

to get your vegetables and flowers

in the ground.

Hopefully, you will at least

have your soil ready for planting.

If not, then add in plenty of

compost or garden mix now and

combine well with your existing

soil before you plant out.

There is something special

about growing your own vegetables

– watching them grow from

seed/seedling to a scrumptious

crop through your own tender

loving care might be why they

taste better.

No matter how big or small the

space available; you can successfully

grow veges in regular garden

beds, raised beds or in pots and

containers.

Tasty vegetables to plant now

include beans, beetroot, carrots,

celery, corn, cucumber, onions,

peas, pumpkin, radish, potatoes,

spinach, tomatoes and zucchini,

not to mention the great range of

lettuces available.

If space really is an issue, there

are plenty of dwarf varieties you

can grow. For plants that need

support like tomatoes or beans,

put your support stakes/structures

in place before you plant

your young plant so you don’t

disturb the roots later on.

Summer flowering annuals

can also be planted now in either

beds or large containers. Flower

varieties to grow are alyssum,

aster, cornflower, cosmos, livingstone

daisy, lobelia, marigold,

SWEET: Pumpkins should

now be developing well.

nemesia, portulaca, petunia, statice,

salvia, stock, sunflowers and

zinnia – to name just a few.

Also, think about planting

some varieties in your vegetable

garden to help attract bees and

other beneficial insects to aid pollination.

Fresh herbs can also now be

safely planted, such as basil,

chives, dill, marjoram, mint,

oregano, parsley, sage, tarragon,

thyme and rosemary. They can be

grown successfully in containers

or in the garden, preferring a hot,

free-draining site.

Add some fertiliser to fruit

trees and shrubs to encourage

growth. Citrus trees should be fed

with a specific citrus fertiliser. Do

not apply fertiliser in very dry hot

conditions such as the peak of

summer when plants can suffer

from heat or moisture stress.

Keep garden design simple

SIMPLE, uncluttered garden

design is especially appropriate

when space is limited.

Whether you want a serene

look or something dramatic, you

can achieve it by mass planting

just a few carefully chosen

plant species, each with strong

features.

Flowers are not essential (year

round good looks and healthy

foliage are more important), but

as seasonal highlights they can

make the garden all the more

interesting.

Mass planting by itself can be

dull. Break up the monotony by

choosing an accent plant that

can be repeated throughout the

design.

Planting in pots adds extra

zing and makes it easy to change

or relocate your accent plants

when you feel like a new look,

or a change between seasons.

As well as accents, every garden

needs a strong focal point.

Often a sculpture, this could

also be a piece of furniture or

garden architecture, a water

feature, or just one stunning

plant in a spectacular pot.

Container gardening is a great

way to enjoy getting your hands

dirty. The trend is towards

simplicity – bigger pots and less

of them.

Classy containers deserve

classy plants, and those that last

the distance.

For pots in prime positions

choose plants with a strong

WARM: Use canna tropicanna for visual affect.

STRONG: Mass planting provides this corner with something

dramatic.

well defined shape, preferably

symmetrical so that they look

good from all angles.

Cordyline red fountain is

one such plant. Its cascading

mass of bright burgundy leaves

rises from a short central base,

becoming thicker and more

lavish with time.

Tolerant of dry spells,

cordyline red fountain performs

exceptionally well in a large pot.

Another spectacular container

plant is cordyline caruba black.

With wide shiny purple-black

leaves and a strongly upright

habit (up to 1.2m tall by 45cm

wide), it makes a striking

contrast in both colour and

form.

Bromeliads and slow growing

cycads (sago palms) are ideal

container plants for warm

climates.

The favourite bromeliad for

big pots is Alcantarea imperialis,

a stunningly symmetrical plant

with bold leathery leaves.

Alcantera is a warm climate

plant but will tolerate cold

nights, and even light frosts once

settled.

Containers offer a no fuss way

to enjoy the seasonal colour of

bulbs and flowering annuals.

When flowering stops, pots

can be replanted or simply

moved from view.

A fabulous summer accent

plant for a warm climate garden

is canna tropicanna. Fantastic in

large containers, it is loved for its

fiery striped leaves, followed by

tall bright orange flower spikes.

Cut right back in autumn the

vibrant leaves reappear with

fresh brilliance in spring.

When we plant whole groups

of a few carefully chosen

varieties, the effect is bold and

deliberate, bringing strength and

character to the garden. But not

all plants are suitable for mass

planting. Anything with a down

time is going to be a blot on your

landscape for a large part of the

year.

So the first priority is to choose

a plant that looks great for at

least most of the year.

VOLVO S90: Luxury sedan with price and driveline

suprises.

• By Ross Kiddie

FROM THE company that

brought us some of the

most delightful internal

combustion engines of all

time, I was surprised to

hear that Volvo is planning

to make electric vehicles

only from 2020.

That being the case, I

must say that I’m disappointed

to see the end

of the wailing, Yamahainspired

V8 that thrilled us

so much, and the fabulous

five-cylinder series that

characterised the company

for decades.

However, Volvo is saying

farewell to petrol

power with a bang, they

have a new four-cylinder

engine which can only be

described as extraordinary,

the power outputs are

mammoth for a 2-litre unit

– 235kW and 400Nm.

The car I experienced

this engine in is the Volvo

S90 T6 – a four-door luxury

sedan, in this case in

Inscription specification.

Of course, those power

figures can’t be achieved

without some sort of forced

induction, the engine is

both supercharged and

turbocharged. That’s not

unusual, Volkswagen had

a design which used both

techniques but it didn’t

glean quite as much power

as Volvo claim.

That aside, the S90 is

quick, it will launch to

100km/h in 5.9sec and will

top end at 250km/h, that’s

not bad for a two-tonne

vehicle. Yes, the S90 is big,

at almost 5m it cocoons

those on board with space

to burn and high levels of

comfort.

When you think of a

prestige vehicle you normally

associate that with

a premium price, but at

just on $100k the S90

Inscription is a bargain for

its level of kit and performance.

The specification details

are way too comprehensive

to detail at length, but I

must make mention of the

central command centre,

which bears a close resemblance

to an iPad and has

a similar operating system,

its functions are deep and

control most of the cabin’s

integral features.

You would guess correctly

that the S90 has safety

features in abundance,

all of the new-age gear is

included and, as we know

from Volvo, it has some of

the items which are preautonomous,

Volvo is just a

short step away from producing

driverless cars.

However, the S90 is all

about the driving experience,

and there is a threemode

driveline management

protocol system

which the driver can select

to best adapt for each journey

– economical, comfort

and sport.

• Price – Volvo S90 T6,

$99,900

• Dimensions –

Length, 4963mm;

width, 1879mm;

height, 1443mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1998cc, 235kW,

400Nm, eight-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 5.9sec

• Fuel usage –

7.2l/100km

I used comfort mostly,

the engine is just so

powerful it will respond

dynamically in that mode

if requested. The surge of

power is delightful and

the subdued shriek as the

supercharger winds up is

delightful to listen to.

Drive is channelled

through an eight-speed

automatic transmission.

The engine/gearbox combination

is smooth, shifts can

barely be felt, and with the

close proximity of ratios

the engine is kept honest

and eager.

That is if you make wilful

use of the accelerator, if

you want to drive sedately

then the engine works

almost in a lethargic manner,

changing at around the

2000rpm mark, optimising

the torque curve and

the low area at which the

engine develops its power.

Incidentally, like most

forced induction engines,

peak power is rewarded

at just 5700rpm, while the

strong torque maximum

is listed from 2200rpm to

5400rpm. The result is a

fluid flow of power which

is strong and exciting right

up to the red-line area.

No matter what speed

you are travelling, the S90

is a relaxed and capable

traveller.

Volvo claims a 7.2-litre

per 100km/h (39mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage

average. I couldn’t get anywhere

near that, but my

10l/100km (28mpg) figure

could be excused by a couple

of in-traffic, stop-start

trips across the city.

Even though the S90 is

a quite bulky, it feels agile

and a lot of that can be put

down to the chassis. Drive

is fed to all four wheels,

and with 20in Pirelli tyres

the car has steering to envy.

The PZero rubber is often

regarded as the world’s

finest in terms of grip and

quality, the steering in the

S90 is accurate and feedback

is simply delightful.

I took the evaluation car

on my usual high country

run and it covered ground

effortlessly and capably,

and that from a vehicle that

could almost be regarded

as limousine-like.

I’m scheduled to drive

a new Volvo XC60 sport

utility vehicle soon,

depending on what future

models are released by

Volvo it could well be

my last drive of a pistonpowered

vehicle from

the company. Whatever

the outcome, Volvo has

certainly saved one of its

best powerplant to last, or

thereabouts.

However, I am sure whatever

the company produces

in the future, there will be

more surprises.

hopeful a new

group AP4 car

could help him

go one better

in next year’s

national rally

championship.

Runner-up Summerfield

has sights set on new car

• By Gordon Findlater

A NEW ride in 2018

could be the ticket for

Matt Summerfield after

finishing second in the

closest New Zealand Rally

Championship title fight in

recent history.

Although disappointed

not to have claimed a

maiden national title

Summerfield can also

acknowledge that his team

have punched above their

weight on a limited budget.

The 25-year-old battled

against the odds this year,

competing in a 10-year-old

Subaru. The majority of the

front-runners in the championship

are operating

brand new AP4 vehicles.

“Ideally another car

would be best but if not,

then I still feel like next

year we could still turn up

with the car we have and

give it good nudge. It would

be bloody hard work to do

it like that though,” said

Summerfield.

Summerfield, 25,

finished second at the

weekend’s Rally New Zealand

Andrew Hawkeswood

• By Gordon Findlater

A FUTURE star in

women’s cricket has been

unearthed from Heaton

Intermediate’s three-peat

at the New Zealand

Primary School Shield.

Estella Wallace was the

top run scorer and won the

tournament’s MVP award

after scoring 209 runs in

four innings at the tournament

finals. She finished

unbeaten in three of those

innings, meaning she

finished with an average

of 209 and a strike rate of

in the New Zealand

Championship.

Hawkeswood went

into the final round of

the championship with a

10-point lead on Ben Hunt,

with Summerfield one

point behind in third.

Summerfield took away

a total of 30 championship

points from the final

round. However, he needed

Hawkeswood to run into

trouble on the rally’s final

day if he was to have a

chance of overhauling him.

Hawkeswood finished

third in his Mazda2 AP4,

7.9sec behind Summerfield

to win the championship

by 10 points. An 11th place

finish saw Hunt slip to

third in the final championship

standings.

rounds. However, gearbox

failure at the opening

round at Rally of Otago

and a crash at Rally of Coromandel

proved costly.

Next year’s championship

will feature a new

event. Rally South Canterbury

will feature on June

23, three weeks after Rally

Canterbury. With Rally

Otago on April 14-15 the

2018 championship will

feature an even split of

North and South Island

events, unlike previous

championships.

“It’s definitely going to

help having another rally

down south. Some of us

are pretty familiar with the

South Canterbury roads,”

said Summerfield.

“It’ll save some money

as well.”

The national title was

Heaton’s fifth in six years.

They went through the

tournament relatively

unchallenged with their

narrowest victory coming

in the form of a 27-run

victory over Holy Cross

School from Papatoetoe.

Wallace may not be

the only future star to

come out of Heaton. Last

year Georgia Edge won

the MVP award. The

Meredith eyes up ASB Classic

• By Gordon Findlater

FRESH OFF winning his first

Canterbury Open title, James

Meredith now hopes to put his

name into one of the best ASB

Classic line-ups ever assembled.

Meredith, 27, will compete in

the New Zealand Tennis Championships

in Auckland next

week. The winner of the tournament

is granted a wildcard entry

into the ASB Classic held in

Auckland in January.

“That’s the goal,” said Meredith.

“Getting there won’t be easy

though, there will be a lot of

quality players on court next

week who have a realistic chance

of doing exactly the same. There

should be some really good

contests,” said Meredith.

Five top-20 world ranked players

are confirmed for next year’s

ASB Classic including 2009 US

Open champion Juan Martin del

Potro, world No 8 Jack Sock and

two-time winner in Auckland

John Isner.

“It’s a huge line-up. To play in

a tournament with names like

the championships. In 2015 he

progressed to the second round

in the singles, and semi-finals

in the doubles, before suffering

back issues which hampered his

play. However, he’s hopeful the

reoccurring issue can be avoided

by concentrating purely on singles.

This will mean playing one

match per day rather than two

games per day over the six-day

event.

“Last time my back kind of

just ran out of steam. This time

I’m looking forward to just

concentrating on singles and

giving that a good crack,” said

Meredith.

Meredith is likely to be seeded

fourth for the championships

behind Finn Tearney, Olly

Sadler and defending champion

Artem Sitak. He shouldn’t be

phased if he sets up a semi-final

meeting with any of the other

top seeds. He recently defeated

Tearney 6-1, (retired) in the

Auckland interclub competition.

He has also previously accounted

for Sitak 7-6, 6-1 at the

2015 Canterbury Open.

At the weekend, Meredith

added his name to the Canterbury

Open trophy. The tournament

has run since 1901 and

contains names such as Onny

Parun, Brian Fairlie, Alistair

Hunt, David Lewis and Mark

Nielson and Rubin Statham.

He cruised through the

opening two rounds of the

tournament before defeating

his brother Matthew Meredith

6-1, 6-4 in the semi-final. In the

final he met Elmwood’s Hayden

Joblin.

After dropping the first set

in an entertaining tiebreaker

Meredith recovered by breaking

early in the second set and

controlling the game from there

to win 6-7, 6-3, 6-1.

The women’s title was won by

Cashmere’s Tessa McCann who

defeated top seed Emily Martin

6-3, 6-1.

The New Zealand Tennis

Championships run from

December 4-9.

Pride secure

another home

football final

• By Gordon Findlater

CANTERBURY United Pride have

booked their fourth straight home

final in the National Women’s

League.

Going into Sunday’s final round

of action, the Pride needed a win to

keep their hopes of a title defence

alive. However, with other results

going their way it means they

finished at the top of the roundrobin

standings and have advanced

directly to the final at English Park

on December 10.

A young Pride team, depleted of

their four national team players,

defeated Central Football 3-2 in

Palmerston North. The Pride were

rocked by an early Central goal when

Rose Morton found the net. But the

Pride soon hit back with a brace to

Cody Taylor putting them in front

and the vital win seemed secure

when Rebecca Lake made it 3-1.

Football Ferns Annalie Longo,

Victoria Esson, Meikayla Moore

and Aimee Phillips have all now

retuned from national duties in

Thailand and will be available for

the final at English Park.

The Pride will meet the winner of

the Auckland Football and Southern

United match this weekend.

Extending

outdoor living

Rain and wind-proofing an outdoor space adds value to a

property. With a roof or clear vinyl sides, your buyers can

see an area where rain doesn’t stop play.

Thanks to blitz advertising,

most Kiwis have heard the name

Archgola. The company and

others like it can add canopies

to decks, enclosing the space for

year-round use.

Undercover verandas, pergolas

and gazebos can be turned into

living space by adding side

panels, which effectively create a

conservatory. Restaurants often

use these spaces, so there’s no

reason why home owners can’t as

well.

Roll-down clear vinyl blinds are

a popular choice, which, if you’re

lucky, can be bought ready made from

hardware stores such as Bunnings

and Mitre10. If not, there are plenty

of companies that will custom

manufacture to fit. Usually these blinds

zip into place and are stored using a

rope-and-pulley system.

Mounting your blinds is very simple.

Typically it involves screwing the

mountings into wood or installing a

track then fitting the blind.

Other options include roll-up shade

cloths or other gazebo or veranda

sides, such as canvas. These aren’t as

windproof as the vinyl blinds, meaning

they’re not a 12-month solution.

If you don’t already have an outdoor

living space, building a pergola doesn’t

generally need planning permission..

Provided the pergola is less than 10

sq m in size, it is usually okay to add

a roof. But a quick call to the council

is a good idea; never risk building an

unpermitted structure.

Another option for quick and easy

rain and windproof outdoor living

is a pop-up gazebo. These can be

turned into dining areas to give buyers

a glimpse of what they could do

themselves.

It’s important to dress them so it

doesn’t look like you’ve just plonked

a gazebo on the lawn. Lights, plants,

furniture and even place settings

can really give a gazebo the Pinterest

touch and bring it to life as an outdoor

entertaining hub for the home.

The more you pay for pop-up

gazebos, the better UV protection of

the fabric and powder coating of the

steel you get.

Heating the outdoor space also

makes it more usable. The cheap option

is a patio heater. Permanent gas, wood

or pellet fireplaces and fire pits are

easier on the eye and can make a

design statement, all-important

when selling a home.

For wind protection, it’s

reasonably simple to erect trellis

and staple brush sides to it or the

existing fence.

Bamboo is particularly good

for this purpose, especially if

you have access to a free source -

although you could also buy it at

all good hardware stores.
