ANY ATTEMPT today by city

councillors to stop Christchurch’s

water being temporarily chlorinated

could be futile – the region’s health

boss can over rule them.

Medical Officer of Health Alistair

Humphrey (right)

said he could issue

the city council a

compliance order to

chlorinate if there

was a significant risk

under the Health

Act.

Yesterday, The Star

surveyed city councillors on how they

will vote today on chlorination after

it was revealed on Tuesday the water

supply was at risk of contamination.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel, councillors

Vicki Buck, David East and Anne

Galloway said they would vote for

temporary chlorination. Cr Raf Manji

said he is likely to vote that way also

but was still to make a final decision.

Councillors Jamie Gough, Mike

Davidson, Pauline Cotter, Tim

Scandrett, Deon Swiggs, Glenn

Livingstone, Yani Johanson, and

Jimmy Chen said they wanted more

information before deciding what way

to vote. •Turn to page 4

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

The Star

News....................................3-23

AS MUCH as many of us

don’t want chlorination of the

water supply, unfortunately

commonsense must prevail (see

page 1).

Our water is delicious; pure

untreated water from natural

reservoirs.

It has been like this since the

formation of the Southern Alps

millions of years ago when the

Australian and Pacific tectonic

plates collided.

When the rain clouds coming

off the Tasman Sea dropped their

liquid load onto the mountains

and into the Canterbury foothills,

it found its way east across

and under the fertile plains and

into the natural reservoirs we

draw from today.

It’s called artesian water and it

is amongst the best in the world.

I hope the chlorination is

temporary and the repair

programme is successful.

But the world’s weather patterns

are changing, as they have

throughout the ages, and we

humans must simply adjust and

adapt, which we are very good at.

But I will taste the difference

with chlorine in my glass.

Quake rattles Irish Crusader

• By Gordon Findlater

IRISH RUGBY superstar Ronan

O’Gara will front the media for

the first time today, just days

after getting his first taste of a

now traditional Christchurch

aftershock.

The Munster man has spent

the past five years coaching at

Racing 92 club in France and

this month has uprooted to

Christchurch with his wife

Jessica and five children Rua,

Molly, JJ, Zak and Max.

The Crusaders new backs

coach hasn’t taken long to

display his sense of humour

in Christchurch. On Saturday

O’Gara took to twitter in cheeky

fashion after a 4.2 magnitude

earthquake.

He tweeted: “The bed was

rattling in the middle of the

night and it wasn’t what you’re

thinking!! 4.2 Mag Earthquake

in Christchurch. #allisgood.

In typical style his good friend

and the man that took his no 10

spot in the Irish team Johnny

Sexton quipped back saying “No

6 on the way.”

O’Gara is Ireland’s second

most-capped player behind Brian

O’Driscoll and the sixth most

capped in rugby union history.

His is the all-time highest points

scorer for Ireland and is the

fourth highest in international

history.

The 40-year-old is also a keen

racehorse fan and owner. He

tasted victory with Bachelor last

week at Kempton Park, England.

NEW BEGINNINGS: After a 128 test career with Ireland and five-year coaching spell in France

Ronan O’Gara is now becoming accustomed to aftershocks in his early Crusaders tenure.

Bachelor is trained by Joseph

O’Brien, the son of famous Irish

trainer Aiden O’Brien.

Following the win Joseph

O’Brien tweeted: “I just had a

very happy owner on the phone!

Big congrats toRonanOGara10

on his win with Bachelor at

Kempton this evening.”

O’Gara replied: “Owner will be

even happier the next time when

trainer tells him he’s fancied !!

Big party on the hill tonight . . .

10s into 7s !! Someone knew!!

Joseph O’Brien is only 24

but has already established

himself as a world-class trainer

after seeing Rekindling to victory

in November’s Melbourne

Cup.

Bus lounge troublemakers disappear

ANTI-SOCIAL behaviour at the

Riccarton bus lounge has slowed

down according to community

constable Aaaron Thorn.

Constable Thorn said they were

expecting “things to ramp up

over the school holidays.” But it

hadn’t.

He was unsure why troubled

groups don’t crowd the bus lounge

anymore but says he still patrols

the area “just about every day.”

Rekindling is owned by Melbourne’s

Crown Casino founder

Lloyd Williams, who holds the

record as a thoroughbred owner

to have won the Melbourne Cup

on the most occasions.

O’Gara will be introduced

to the media by the Crusaders

at Malvern Park today at

12.30pm.

Delay at Aurora Centre

UPGRADE AND repair work on the

Aurora Centre at Burnside High is likely to

be finished a month after it was due to be

completed.

The performing arts centre has been

undergoing a $2 million upgrade for

weather tightness and earthquake damage

repairs since the start of the month.

However, due to the complexity of the

work, the building, which was expected to

be completed by February, won’t be open

until at least March.

INJURED GIRL RESCUED

An injured 10-year-old girl and

her mother were airlifted from

rocks in Little Akaloa, Banks

Police said the rescue was urgent

due to the incoming tide.

BURNSIDE ALUMNI PLAN

Former Prime Minister John

Key, rugby player Andy Ellis

and author Eleanor Catton

could soon be part of an alumni

association at their old school,

Burnside High. The second

biggest school in the country is

investigating the possibility of

establishing an association for

past students. The alumni could

include up to 450 students per

year, totalling about 26,000

former students.

SAFER HOMES

More than 4200 Housing New

Zealand properties in the city

have had new, photo-electric

smoke alarms installed as part

of a $2 million investment into

Christchurch’s social housing.

It has also installed more than

1100 more secure driveways

as part of the driveway safety

programme, which began in

2013. It aims to reduce the risk

of children being run over in

the driveways of state homes, by

installing fencing, self-closing

gates with child-resistant

latches, speed restriction signs,

speed humps and convex

mirrors where appropriate.

Bid to stop chlorine

in water will be futile

•From page 1

Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner and councillors

Aaron Keown, Sara

Templeton and Phil

Clearwater could not be

contacted yesterday.

Dr Humphrey said he

would consider serving a

compliance order if city

councillors voted against

chlorination.

“Yes, there are legal

options. But I don’t think

they would need to be applied.

“Although there is a

very small probability of

contamination, the consequences

are so serious

the council should be

responsible.”

It was revealed on Tuesday,

the city has lost its

secure bore status because

some below ground wellheads

were not sufficiently

sealed to prevent surface

groundwater contamination.

City council staff had

been aware of this since

December 22 but had not

informed Ms Dalziel until

January 15.

A work programme is

under way to upgrade all

city council wells by December.

The city council is

now looking at accelerating

the programme so it could

be finished by October.

It has been recommended

water be temporarily

chlorinated until the work

is completed.

It is currently safe to

drink the water – the risk

is the chance of future

contamination.

Said Cr Buck: “I will vote

yes because what’s going to

happen is if we don’t do it

then the medical officer of

health is going to tell us to

do it anyway.”

“If he was saying permanently

chlorinate, which

he is not, I would be voting

differently.”

The Government has

recommended water

throughout the country be

chlorinated following the

Havelock North inquiry.

But Dr Humphrey said

Christchurch was a “special

case” and they could

fight that.

If city councillors voted

against the chlorination

recommendation now, it

could hurt that case in the

long term, he said.

Dr Humphrey said there

was no evidence chlorine

at these low levels causes

health problems.

Buck stops with councillors

• By Bridget Rutherford

A CHRISTCHURCH man has

taken a political stand against

the controversial cycleways with

a blank wall, a paintbrush and a

stencil.

Robert Beasley has called out

city councillors for voting in

favour of the Quarryman’s Trail

in graffiti on his father’s building

on the corner of Hazeldean Rd

and Antigua St.

The cycleway is currently being

built and runs along Antigua

St, south of Moorhouse Ave.

The plumber has painted

portraits of city councillors Vicki

Buck, Phil Clearwater, Mike

Davidson, Anne Galloway, Pauline

Cotter, Sara Templeton and

deputy mayor Andrew Turner

onto the building with the title

“the honourable CCC cycleways

comittee (sic)”.

Below them it says “so vote

these people back in if you want

to keep living in a dictatorship.”

The city councillors were part

of the temporary Major Cycleway

Routes Committee and

voted for the Quarryman’s Trail

to run along Antigua St in 2016.

Quarryman’s Trail is one of 13

cycleways to be built across the

city, costing $156 million. They

have been contentious with businesses

saying the loss of parking

will cripple them.

Mr Beasley said the cycleway

had taken away on-street

parking. He fears it will make it

difficult to rent an empty unit he

was renovating in the building.

“I just felt that the city council

cycleways were basically in

hiding.”

Although he knew the cycleway

would remain, he wanted to

hold city councillors accountable

for their decisions.

“We need to know who we’ve

voted for and what they’ve actually

been doing.”

Mr Beasley said he had done

graffiti at home, but this was the

first political one. He had received

“lots of positive feedback.”

“I’m alright with a stencil and

a brush and I feel quite strongly

about this building.”

Cr Templeton said the graffiti

was more effective and showed

more thought than online “trolling”.

Cr Buck and Cr Davidson said

it was freedom of speech.

Cr Cotter said it was “quite

flattering”.

“You can hardly call it a dictatorship.

It’d be a breeze if we had

a dictatorship. All that money we

could save on consultation.”

Cr Galloway said she was keen

on getting a photo of her on her

bicycle next to it.

Mr Beasley said he met with

Cr Templeton yesterday and she

ran him through the process of

how the cycleway routes were

decided, which was helpful.

The Quarryman’s Trail will run

from Halswell to the central city.

Draining pond

doesn’t stop

midge problem

• By Sophie Cornish

THE DRAINAGE of an oxidation

pond in Bromley to reduce midge

numbers has not worked.

The process labelled ‘sun-baking’

was an attempt to expose the sediment

beneath the ponds to dry out,

removing the moisture the midge

larvae need to survive.

Fed-up resident Janet Profit said

it hasn’t worked and rising temperatures

are causing numbers to

increase, driving her ‘insane.’

It is causing her and her neighbours

to suffer from what she calls

MD – ‘midgey depression’.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board member Tim Baker agrees.

They are just as bad, if not worse

because of the weather,” he said.

Mr Baker is calling for a widespread

survey about the affect of

midges on residents.

“What I would call for is the council

to quickly and simply do a survey

of at least 1000 houses

. . . it needs to be done ASAP,” said

Mr Baker.

The Integrated Midge Management

Plan which is under way by the city

council covers a range of solutions

including earthworks, civil installations,

vegetation, planting, screening,

sampling and chemical control.

ECan pays for driving, retirement courses

• By Bridget Rutherford

Bill Bayfield

RATEPAYERS ARE funding

driving courses and retirement

planning for Environment

Canterbury staff.

Since January 2016, ECan

spent $23,210 on 38 various

training courses for its chief executive

Bill Bayfield, councillors

and leadership team.

The figures were released to

The Star under the Local Government

Official Information

and Meetings Act.

Among the

list was a $1555

driving course for

chief executive

Bill Bayfield and

retirement planning

for staff.

The most

expensive course

was a Strategic Visioning

workshop in San Francisco, attended

by an ECan director in

September.

It cost $5320 for the director

to attend. That included $1620

in course fees, $2450 for flights,

$750 for accommodation and

$500 in travel expenses, such as

food.

Two councillors went to Making

Good Decisions Foundation

courses, one in Christchurch in

March for $2053, and another

in Wellington for $2997 in November.

The Ki uta ki tai Freshwaters

on the Edge Conference in

Invercargill was attended by a

councillor in December 2016,

which cost $2135.

Meanwhile, ECan spent

$1828 sending a director to the

New Zealand Society of Local

Government Managers Annual

Summit in Auckland in September

2016.

ECan did not release the

names of the individuals on the

courses.

The top five ECan staff are paid

between $180,000-$429,999. Mr

Bayfield’s salary is $427,012.

In February 2016, Mr Bayfield

took part in an advanced driving

course and light motor vehicle

driver safety programme costing

$1555.

ECan communications and external

relations director Katherine

Trought said Mr Bayfield had

a “low speed minor nose-to-tail”

crash on State Highway 1 during

work time in August 2015.

There were no injuries and little

damage, she said. Mr Bayfield

went on a one-day course to

ensure he was “driving safety

and efficiently,” particularly as he

drove long distances for work –

frequently with passengers.

Ms Trought said ECan offered

driver training for staff who

drove for work. Those who had

been involved in a crash were

required to do it.

Mr Bayfield’s course involved

a classroom theory session and

familiarisation with vehicle

controls, safety features and

handling. It included a practical

session for anti-skid, antirollover

training and stopping

distance awareness.

New Zealand Taxpayers’

Union executive director Jordan

Williams said it seemed “absurd”

ratepayers were funding driving

courses. “A private business

would expect staff to develop

driving skills on their own time.

Assuming the chief executive

isn’t driving forklifts, ratepayerfunded

driving courses are

unnecessary.”

Meanwhile, in November

ECan spent $250 on a retirement

planning course, which included

financial and asset planning.

Ms Trought said it was offered

to all staff over 55 preparing

for retirement. Sixteen staff

had attended two retirement

planning workshops since the

start of 2016. Mr Williams said

while “odd,” the retirement

courses did not cost a huge

amount. ECan spent $990 on

three Effective Communications

and Media courses in October.

The cost of training courses

is less than in 2013, when ECan

spent $73,000 alone sending Mr

Bayfield to INSEAD business

school, in Fontainebleau, France,

for four weeks.

partner function costing $1716;

and a farewell for outgoing

chief executive Tom Hooper

at $498. It paid for alcohol at

popular eateries – such as Inati,

Fiddlesticks, Twenty Seven Steps,

Venuti, Fat Eddie’s, O.G.B, Little

High and the Crowne Plaza – for

various events.

The InstaMeet event in November

involved $333 of alcohol

for spot prizes, networking and

a dumpling-making course.

The InstaMeet brought together

photographers and ‘Instagrammers’

to promote the city on

social media. A ChristchurchNZ

spokeswoman said it needed

to attract visitors, talent, major

events and businesses.

“To do so we need to, on occasion,

extend hospitality to

individuals, businesses and organisations

who are considering

investing in or work in partnership

with us to promote the city.

The collated alcohol expenditure

in our first five months of

operation should be considered

in the context of the number

of people that ChristchurchNZ

has hosted – which is almost

700 individuals and equates to

expenditure of $7.71 per person

over this time.”

She said alcohol expenditure

was covered by its sensitive

expenditure policy, which states

entertainment and hospitality

expenditure must be in connection

with stakeholder liaison or

team building.

Purchasing alcohol was not

“considered lightly”, she said.

“We only do so where it is

appropriate to do so culturally

and would be considered by the

majority to be out of place not

to do so.” DCL spent $1627 on

alcohol since November 2016,

most of which was on events for

“building external relationships”.

It spent $452 on booze for the

New Brighton playground preconstruction

function with the

project team and contractor.

Meanwhile, Environment

Canterbury spent $1518 on

booze, which included staff

farewells, alcohol for thank you

gift hampers following the 2016

Kaikoura earthquake, and an

end-of-year function for some

staff.

The Department of the Prime

Minister and Cabinet’s Greater

Christchurch Group, Regenerate

Christchurch and Otakaro spent

nothing on alcohol.

The CDHB spent $222 on nine

socialisation events for the residents

of Tuarangi Home, an aged

care facility in Ashburton, which

was funded from donations for

“patient comforts”. It also spent

$193 on alcohol at a meal attended

by seven people in which

the CDHB hosted international

health delegates who were visiting

to see the Canterbury health

system in November 2016.

A city council spokesman

said it could not determine how

much it spent because alcohol

came under the overall hospitality

order.

“In most, if not all of these

situations, the exact detail of

the order is not itemised, for

example the alcohol costs would

usually not be separated from

the rest of the catering costs.”

The Selwyn District Council

has spent $3924 on alcohol, and

$1272 on non-alcoholic beverages

since November 2016.

Functions at which alcoholic

beverages were served included

a fire chief pre-season meeting,

Port Hills fire activities/debriefs,

and community response team

training working dinners.

Fire rages, homes at risk

No winners when tackling heavy

Heavy trucks are more

prevalent on residential

streets following the

February 22, 2011,

earthquake – and some

residents aren’t happy.

Bridget Rutherford looks

at why it is happening,

and what can be done

about it

IT’S A catch-22 situation.

They can be big, noisy and

shake homes as they drive past.

But they also deliver services

and goods to different neighbourhoods,

and they are a big

part of the rebuild.

So what are the rules around

heavy vehicles using residential

streets? And can they be

banned?

The city council has always

had the ability

to restrict

heavy vehicles

from using

particular

streets, but

only under the

Land Transport

Act.

Aaron

Haymes

City council

transport

operations

manager Aaron Haymes said it

required the police to enforce

the ban and take every breach to

court, which was “time consuming

and inefficient.”

He said the new Traffic and

Parking Bylaw 2017, which

comes into force on March 1

would make it easier to do.

Under the new bylaw, the city

council can prohibit or restrict

any specified class of vehicle for

its size or the goods carried if

it is unsuitable on a particular

road.

The bylaw changes make a

breach of the heavy vehicle ban

an offence against the bylaw for

which the police can issue an

instant infringement notice,” Mr

Haymes said.

Some residential streets

already had bans on them, including

Hornby’s Seymour and

Branston Sts, and St Johns St in

Woolston. Trucks are allowed

to use them if they are servicing

residents.

Retirees living on Wigram’s

Lodestar Ave have campaigned

for more than a year for trucks

to stop using the route.

Lady Wigram Retirement

Village residents put up signs

asking drivers to use another

route as the trucks were noisy

and rattled everything in their

units.

DIFFERENCE: While many

trucks stick to arterial roads

(above) in Christchurch, some

have increased the use of

residential streets such as

Wigram’s Lodestar Ave (left).

PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER

It resulted in a group of them

being verbally abused by the

retirement village’s owner John

Tooby, who told them to “grow

up” and “get a f***king life”.

They had already approached

Wigram MP Megan Woods and

the Hornby-Halswell-Riccarton

Community Board about the

problem to no avail.

Mr Haymes said for the last

25 years, the city council had

worked to a four per cent rule

when determining whether to

put a ban in place or not.

If the city council received a

complaint about heavy vehicles,

it would need to be verified by a

heavy vehicle count.

If the number of heavy

vehicles was higher than four

per cent of the daily total, a

ban could be imposed by the

relevant community board, Mr

Haymes said.

Less than four per cent was

considered normal, he said.

These HV bans are not put in

place to prevent legitimate HVs

using a street to service a dairy,

shopping complex or deliver

furniture or building supplies,

but to stop the HV through

movement of rat running/short

cutting through a residential

area.”

City council staff have done a

traffic and speed count of Lodestar

Ave.

The count found on average

there were 1943 vehicles using

the road each day, which was

at the “higher end” of traffic

volumes.

But it found there 32 heavy

vehicles or buses using the road

each day, which equated to 1.6

per cent of all traffic – less than

the four per cent threshold.

The city council plans on doing

another traffic volume and

speed count midway through

the year to compare.

It did find there was a speeding

problem on Lodestar Ave,

with about 300 vehicles a day

going at or above 60km/h when

the speed limit was 50km/h.

The city council asked police to

patrol the area more.

Fendalton’s Glandovey and

Idris Rds are facing a similar

problem with trucks.

The Glandovey, Idris and

Straven Residents’ Association

had been trying to get heavy

vehicles and trailers off Idris and

Glandovey Rds since the intersection

was upgraded in 2013.

They say the trucks are noisy

and made the roads unsafe for

pedestrians, cyclists and other

motorists.

The association commissioned

a report that found trucks could

not go through the intersection

without cutting into other lanes

due to its design.

vehicle issue

Resident Steve Purcell has

written to Mayor Lianne Dalziel

asking for trucks to be banned.

In the letter he said they

operated from 4.30am-10.30pm

daily. The engine brakes and acceleration

was noisy and made his

house shake.

His letter is to be discussed

by the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board on

Monday.

New Zealand Trucking Association

chief executive David

Boyce said trucks needed to use

some streets to deliver goods to

each area, such as fuel to service

stations and goods to supermarkets

and stores.

“If they’re in an area it’s because

they are providing services to

these areas.”

He said there was a lot of

construction near Lodestar Ave

the area, requiring trucks. Idris

Rd was a common route between

supplies being dropped off at

Northlands Shopping Centre and

Westfield Riccarton, he said.

These trucks need to service

these places. It is an arterial road

that people would go down,” he

said.

“It’s not that the industry is

unsympathetic to people, they

certainly are, but I don’t think

anyone goes down these streets

without good reason.”

He said there would be examples

where restrictions could be

put on streets, and the new bylaw

would allow for that.

“You wouldn’t take a 20m truck

down some streets. But you might

need to take six or seven metre

trucks down there to load your

furniture, or pick up your wheelie

bin.”

Mr Haymes said because of the

rebuild following the February

22, 2011, earthquake, most roads

had seen an increase in trucks.

He said nationally heavy vehicle

movements were increasing,

which was a sign of an active

economy.

“NZTA is predicting an increase

of approximately 30 per

CATCH-22: New Zealand

Trucking Association chief

executive David Boyce says

cent over the next 15-20 years.”

Other cities have banned

trucks from using some routes.

Hamilton has stopped freight

from passing through on certain

streets, while Cromwell had also

put in heavy vehicle restrictions.

A heavy vehicle has a gross

mass of greater than three tonnes,

and does not exceed 44 tonnes.

NZTA journey manager Lee

Wright said heavy trucks that

exceeded general access limits,

such as those carrying a house,

needed to apply for a permit to

use highways.

“Given the rebuild not only

of houses but essential piping

infrastructure, it is inevitable

that locally-employed truck drivers

have to use some residential

streets to get to work sites and

deliver resources to work sites,”

she said.

The trucking industry is

generally very responsive to the

need to keep trucks off residential

streets and on highways and key

arterial routes.”​

Maddie’s recovery from

kidney surgery going

better than expected

• By Emily O’Connell

WEST MELTON teen

Maddie Collins is exceeding

expectations by taking her first

steps alone, only days after a

potentially life-saving kidney

transplant.

Maddie, 14, and her family

were told on January 16 their

five-year wait for a kidney

match had been found.

They flew from Christchurch

to Auckland early the following

day and Maddie underwent the

initial operation at 1pm at Starship

Children’s Health.

Maddie’s mother Sarah

Manson-Collins said hospital

staff are “gobsmacked” by her

recovery.

She said Maddie may be discharged

to Ronald McDonald

House, Auckland, on Friday.

Mrs Manson-Collins said

some of the almost $300,000

raised for Maddie will be used

to cover transplant expenses

and the rest will be saved for

future medical costs.

She isn’t sure how long this

kidney will last but hopes it’s

“quite a few years.”

Complications following the

transplant meant it was a long

night for the family.

Maddie’s new kidney was not

working and had no blood flow

to it due to a kink in an artery.

The surgery was expected to

take four to six hours. But

after Maddie was taken out of

theatre, she was later rushed

back in.

Surgeons reopened her and

unsuccessfully tried to restitch

the artery to remove the kink.

They then tried to shorten the

artery, but that did not work

either.

Maddie’s new kidney was

then removed and surgeons

re-positioned it in a higher

position.

GOOD TIMES THIS

SUMMER

MIRACLE KIDNEY: Maddie Collins is doing well at Starship

Children’s Health after a potentially life-saving kidney

transplant last week.

Her second surgery lasted for

more than seven hours.

Mrs Manson-Collins said

Maddie’s kidney disease,

nephrotic syndrome, had not

returned yet.

Maddie will now spend a few

months in Auckland resting

and regaining her strength.

She received a kidney transplant

from her father Adam

Collins five years ago but her

body rejected it. With only a

two per cent chance, the family

did not expect to find another

kidney match in New Zealand.

They were planning a trip to

The John Hopkins Hospital in

Baltimore, United States, which

had been looking at new kinds

of transplants, to find a match.

Mrs Manson-Collins said

they feel for the family of the

donator who lost their loved

one, but they were also really

thankful for the donation.

“We’re so grateful to the family

who has donated their family

member’s organs so that our

daughter can live. We’ll forever

be in their debt,” she said.

Chch link to rocket launch

• By Sarla Donovan

A PHOTO of Rocket Lab’s

successful Electron rocket

launch this week has gone

around the world, much to the

excitement of the man who

took it, former Sumner resident

Kieran Fanning.

The self-described ‘electron

wrangler’ at the Auckland-based

space company took the image

which has

been spotted

in American,

Indian,

Russian and

European

newspapers.

“So stoked,”

said Mr

Kieran

Fanning

Fanning, who

is an avionics

engineer at

the company, working on the

rocket’s onboard electrical and

electronic systems.

“It was pretty surreal. As soon

as it got downloaded, I knew it

was the money shot. It was really

cool to wake up in the morning

and see a lot of space journalists

that I follow, tweeting and

talking about it and seeing it in

news outlets all over the world.”

Photography is a hobby of

the 24-year-old who grew up

in Sumner, attended Shirley

Boys’ High School and studied

engineering at Canterbury

University.

He moved to his dream job at

Rocket Lab two years ago after

starting his career with Fisher &

Paykel in Dunedin.

Rocket Lab successfully

launched its second Electron

rocket into orbit off the Mahia

Peninsula on Monday.

There will be a third test

launch before the company

can move into commercial

“It’s still a young company

CDHB forced to release documents

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE CANTERBURY District

Health Board has been forced

to review what information it

makes public after a complaint

by The Star.

The CDHB has now released

the agendas and minutes of its

Quality, Finance, Audit and

Risk Committee from 2016 to

The Star, more than a year after

requesting them.

The CDHB was told to release

them by Ombudsman Leo Donnelly,

who said the information

should be to promote “accountability

and transparency.”

It is a move that has forced the

CDHB to re-look at what information

it makes public, and how the

committee’s meetings operate.

The Star requested the

committee documents under

the Official Information Act

in September 2016, because

they were the only ones not to

be uploaded on the website for

public access.

Initially, the CDHB would

not release them so The Star

laid a complaint with the

Ombudsman saying it was in the

public interest.

At the time, the CDHB was

facing a budget shortfall of more

than $35 million for the following

year. The year prior it posted

an $18 million budget deficit.

The committee meets regularly

to discuss activities including

commercial and industrial negotiations

and risk awareness and

management. It does not make

decisions, just recommendations

to the CDHB board.

After discussions with the

Ombudsman, the CDHB eventually

released the documents to

The Star with some redactions

last month.

Topics discussed at the

meetings included finances,

seeking expressions of interest

for the air ambulance service,

and the redevelopment and

demolition plans at the time for

Parkside and Riverside hospital

buildings.

David Meates Barry Bragg

The CDHB has three statutory

committees that all hold public

meetings. The QFARC was not

one of those.

But CDHB chief executive David

Meates said the board would

now discuss how the committee

would run in future.

“It’s likely QFARC meetings

will follow a similar format to our

other statutory committee meetings,

whereby, meeting minutes

of matters which are deemed to

be in the public interest [and not

subject to privacy or commercial

sensitivity concerns] will be

published in the board committee

section of our website.”

He said “in the interests

of transparency” the CDHB

planned to start publishing OIA

responses deemed to be in the

public interest, or relating to subjects

widely requested.

QFARC chairman Barry Bragg

said each of the country’s 20

district health boards had an

equivalent to the committee, and

it was understood none of those

were public.

He said the CDHB argued to

the Ombudsman a fundamental

aspect of the committee was

members and those presenting

District Health

Board was

information on

participated on the basis it was

confidential.

“Canterbury DHB acknowledges

the Ombudsman’s view

that there will be matters

discussed at QFARC that are in

the public interest to be released

once a recommendation has

been put to the board.”

CDHB board and QFARC

committee member Andrew

Dickerson said the issue would

be discussed by the board, and

likely by the country’s other

district health boards.

“At a personal level, I have no

objections to the information

being public,” he said.

“It’s my personal view we

should be guided in the way we

work as our other committees

do.”

Rising star stays true to his roots

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Julia Evans

MARLON Williams has opened

for Bruce Springsteen, sung at

the earthquake memorial service

and played on Later . . . with Jools

Holland.

And that is only the tip of the

iceberg when it comes to the

Lyttelton songwriter’s recent

achievements.

But in the midst of international

success, the 27-year-old’s

latest album has been influenced

by his time growing up in New

Brighton and Lyttelton.

In the music video for Williams’

new single, What’s Chasing

You, eagle-eyed fans will spot

the New Brighton pier in the

background.

The video was shot on South

Brighton beach by local filmmaker

Martin Sagadin. It features

a swaggering Williams who

appears to bully other beachgoers

with dance moves.

He says he’s on a “bit of nostalgia

trip” at the moment. The spot

was chosen because the singer

spent some of his earliest years

living on Union St, one block

back from the beach.

But in terms of how much of

an influence home has had on

his songwriting, Williams said

it’s hard to say.

“I pretty much only write

music when I’m home so I guess

there’s something in that,” he

said.

But he said he doesn’t get home

as much as he would like.

“I try to get back as much as I

can, but it’s usually never more

than a couple of months out of

the year.”

One of his favourite spots, the

Lyttelton Skate Park, is set to

feature in an upcoming video –

which Williams teased is coming

out “soon”. “I’m usually back

over summer where you’ll find

me shooting hoops at the Lyttelton

Skate Park with the cool

kids or down at the beach, or not

at all because I’m hiding in my

bedroom,” he said.

What’s Chasing You is the

latest release from the now Melbourne-based

songwriter’s upcoming

sophomore album Make

Way For Love, which is due out

on February 16. The album was

written in the wake of Williams’

break-up with another acclaimed

local songwriting talent, Aldous

Harding. “Then I wrote about 15

songs in a month,” he said.

Harding’s vocals feature

alongside Williams on the

album’s debut single, Nobody

Gets What They Want Anymore.

The song tackles the way the pair

attempted to navigate their separate

demanding careers until

Congrats Jacinda

HEARING that a

friend is pregnant

with their first child

is always really

wonderful news.

It’s even more

special when you know

how much that friend has wanted

to be a parent. Hearing that news

from a friend who also happens

to be the Prime Minister of New

Zealand, however, is the kind of

special that happens pretty much

once in a lifetime.

Like all New Zealanders, I’m

absolutely thrilled that Jacinda

and Clarke are going to be

welcoming their first child into

the world in June.

Raising a child in the public

spotlight is never easy, but the

new baby will be lucky enough

to have some of the kindest,

most grounded people I know

as parents. I have absolutely

zero doubt they are going to be

wonderful parents. As well as

how happy I am for my friend on

a personal level, I also know that

this is great news for our country.

Already in the public reaction to

the news, it’s clear how proud New

Zealanders are that we are the

kind of modern, forward-looking

country where a young woman

can hold an important role like

this and raise a family.

This is only the second time in

modern world history the leader

of a country will be giving birth in

office. One thing that’s really come

through in the public reaction to

this is how great it will be for a

whole generation of young women

to grow up with the role model

of a working mother as Prime

Minister.

As Jacinda has said, she won’t be

the first woman to have to juggle

the complexities of a career and

family. For all the other women

around the country who are doing

the same thing, I think it will be

amazing that they will be able to

look to the leader of our country

and know she is tackling the same

challenges.

It will be a powerful statement

that they have a Prime Minister

who understands their lives and is

on their side.

I will vote for chlorination plan

I STARTED writing this column

last week and began with the

words “happy new year and may

2018 bring all that you hope

for. I hope that those who have

had holidays over Christmas

have come back refreshed and

ready to take advantage of all

the opportunities that our city

offers.”

When I came back to work

on Monday, January 15, I was

told that my regular column

started this week, so I thought I

could just submit it a week later.

However, on the same day, I was

given an update on our obligations

as a drinking-water supplier

under the Health Act.

It transpired that on the last

working day before Christmas,

the Canterbury drinking water

assessor had removed our secure

groundwater status.

Let me explain. The Drinking

Water Standards currently

have three criteria for achieving

secure groundwater status:

1. Bore water is not directly

affected by surface or climate

influences.

2. The bore head must provide

satisfactory protection by being

sealed at the surface.

RISK: Christchurch’s drinking water could be temporarily

chlorinated after it was found the city’s wells may be in danger

of contamination.

3. Demonstrating an absence

of past E. coli positive results.

Water drawn from confined

aquifers that satisfies the three

criteria is considered secure bore

water.

Unfortunately, we could not

satisfy the second of the criteria,

as the independent engineers

who are engaged each year to

sign off on the security of the

bore-heads would not sign off

on them this time. I immediately

asked that the recess committee

be called together, so that as

many city councillors as were

available could be briefed on the

situation and to ensure we could

get a paper to the first city council

meeting of the year.

One of the questions that was

asked was what had changed?

We were meeting the criteria before,

but suddenly we were not?

There is a view that since the

Havelock North incident, the

appreciation of the risks (both

likelihood and consequences)

has brought a sharper focus to

Drinking Water Standards compliance

and greater diligence in

signing off secure bore status.

The risks haven’t changed

– the probability remains low

and the consequences remain

high, which is why we have had

a more rigorous testing regime

than strictly required.

That’s also why city council

staff had the below ground wellheads

investigated in June last

year and why work is already

Lianne Dalziel

under way to bring each of them

up to secure status.

The issue for the city council is

that without the engineers sign

off on the well-heads, we are

advised that we have an obligation

to consider another layer of

protection in order to meet our

duty to ensure that the drinking

water is safe.

Our city council takes its

drinking water responsibilities

very seriously. And that is why

today I am supporting measures

required to restore our secure

groundwater status and the

temporary chlorination of our

drinking water in the meantime.

“A local team for local people”

Creating a ‘world-class’ city

HAPPY NEW year – may 2018

be good to you, your family and

friends.

A brand new year gives us all a

chance to take a fresh look at our

city and what we want it to be.

Since the earthquakes, we have

all faced huge change and it has

been enormously challenging.

We’ve mourned who and what

we lost, we’re gradually replacing

what we had, but we are also

seeing the opportunity for real

betterment.

The central city blueprint focused

on the Avon-Otakaro and

the east and south frames to provide

more people-friendly spaces;

new integrated facilities such as

the emergency and justice precinct

and the metro-sports; and

the infrastructure to support our

new 21st century city.

It was driven by the ideas that

came out of the ‘Share an Idea’

event and the desire to create

“a world-class small city where

people want to live, to work and

to play”.

There is still much to do but

most of the physical building is

planned and under way.

But a great city is not just about

buildings, it’s about people and

how they embrace and use their

city.

STREET PERFORMERS: Events like the World Buskers Festival

add vibrancy to the central city.

Nicky Wagner

So in 2018, our challenge is to

make sure the bricks and mortar

reflect the sort of city we want to

live in. That what we do here supports

the values and the quality

of life we want for ourselves, for

our families, and for generations

to come.

So what does that look like?

The great cities of the world are

inclusive, vibrant, full of interest,

energy and excitement. And all

that comes from the people in

the city, and how they connect,

Beautiful Teeth

how they participate,

how they contribute

to their communities.

So let’s make 2018

the year of activity,

of taking part, for

everyone in Christchurch

to get involved.

Let’s get out into the city, enjoy

our parks, take part in the events

(like the World Buskers Festival)

and be active in our neighbourhoods.

Let’s be open-minded, try new

things, take time to connect with

others, and encourage everyone

to see, experience and enjoy the

best of our city.

‘Silent’ earthquakes: Why we

Scientists are

investigating the

2016 Kaikoura

earthquake’s role in

setting off numerous

‘silent’ quakes and

the affect they might

have on us. Jamie

Morton reports

THE KAIKOURA earthquake

might best be remembered for

shaking mountains, tearing

apart highways and heaving a

long strip of coastline out of the

ocean.

But, amid what was one of the

most complex earthquakes ever

recorded, something else strange

happened that scientists are still

grappling with.

When big quakes like the 7.8

jolt strike, they fire out seismic

waves that roll through the earth

and can trigger new quakes

further away.

But the knock-on effect

observed in the wake of the November

2016 calamity wasn’t one

that set off those short, sharp,

violent events we normally think

of as earthquakes.

Instead, the results were deepseated,

slow-burning “silent”

events that can carry on from

seconds to years, and displace

faults without ever being felt by

us on the surface.

These were observed over

much of what is our largest and

most active plate boundary

fault, the Hikurangi subduction

zone, which lies about 600km

from where the main shock was

detected.

“This widespread, distant triggering

of slow-slip was really surprising,

and we think it occurred

due to stress changes from the

passing Kaikoura earthquake

seismic waves,” said Jon Carey, a

soil mechanics scientist at GNS

Science.

Beneath the subduction

zone

Tectonic plate movements at

subduction zones, where one

plate is forced beneath another,

are best known for having kicked

off some of the world’s most

catastrophic quakes.

Most recently, they’ve included

the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and

tsunami off Japan, which killed

nearly 16,000 people, and the

2004 Boxing Day 9.1 quake and

tsunami, which left as many as

280,000 dead.

But advances in GPS monitoring

have revealed how these

danger areas produce other types

of the Kaikoura

created in the land.

of quakes, among them silent or

“slow-slip” events.

These events may heap stress

on nearby fault zones, and play a

big part in activating disastrous

quakes.

In spite their threat, the underlying

mechanisms behind them

still aren’t well understood.

HOW IT WORKS: The Hikurangi subduction zone

lies about 600km from where the Kaikoura quake

was detected.

IMAGE: GNS SCIENCE

“Determining how slow-slip

events are triggered during and

after earthquakes is very important,

as the triggered slow-slip

events may have an impact on

the likelihood of earthquakes

following the main shock,” Dr

Carey said.

For instance, a magnitude

6 earthquake that struck near

Porangahau, Hawkes Bay, in late

November 2016 was likely caused

by a slow-slip event that itself

had been set off by the Kaikoura

quake earlier that month.

The state-of-the-art scientific

drilling ship, JOIDES Resolution,

is recovering sediment samples

off the North Island’s East Coast.

Dr Carey and international

colleagues have now begun

piecing together the process,

using sediment samples recovered

from the Hikurangi

subduction zone.

They’ll also draw on samples

from Japan’s Nankai Trough,

another feared subduction zone

that’s been the source of a dozen

massive “megathrust” quakes

over the past 2000 years, the

most recent killing at least 1362

people and destroying thousands

of homes.

Importantly, the study, supported

by a $300,000 Marsden

Fund grant, will also aim to establish

whether slow-slip events

could affect the likelihood of

future quakes.

While there’s not yet enough

evidence to be certain, scientists

say it’s possible the Hikurangi

subduction zone could unleash

magnitude 9 earthquakes.

Geological evidence has

suggested the last magnitude 8

earthquake happened about 500

years ago, although two quakes

that measured more than 7 were

recorded offshore of Gisborne in

1947. Modelling has shown that

parts of the East Coast close to

the Hikurangi subduction zone

– like eastern Wairarapa – could

be hit by a tsunami only 7min

after a major quake.

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

need to care about them

From ocean to lab

Dr Carey said movement

behaviour similar to that of

slow-slip events had already been

observed in some landslides.

When analysed, material from

these landslides had revealed how

rapid and slow landslide movements

could occur in response to

changes in soil and rock properties

caused by seismic shaking

from regional earthquakes.

“Given that the overall physics

governing both landslides and

faults are in some cases similar,

there are great opportunities

to combine approaches from

these fields to bring a unique

perspective to the understanding

of shallow slow-slip event

triggering.”

At the same time, a large team

of researchers working under the

International Ocean Discovery

Programme were probing the

Hikurangi subduction zone from

aboard the scientific drilling ship

JOIDES Resolution, off the North

Island’s East Coast.

Along with installing high-tech

instruments beneath the sea floor

to monitor changes during slowslip

events and earthquakes near

Gisborne, the scientists were also

recovering core samples of sediments,

which Dr Carey and his

team would analyse themselves.

“To undertake experiments

designed to suitably replicate the

conditions in the shallow subduction

zone requires very specialist

laboratory testing equipment,”

he said.

“GNS Science is one of only a

few institutions world-wide with

the type of instrument that can

simulate the conditions within

a shallow subduction zone and

subject the sediment to simulated

earthquake shaking.”

Lab tests will first determine

the physical characteristics of the

rocks in each subduction zone,

before specialist experiments

are undertaken to replicate

stress conditions at each site and

measure how and when slow-slip

events are triggered by stress

changes from passing seismic

waves.

“One hypothesis that we plan

to test is whether or not the passing

seismic waves cause a change

in pressure from fluids in the

fault zone, which might trigger

the slow-slip.”

All of the data would be combined

with the movement records

from what remain two of the

world’s most rigorously investigated

subduction zones known to

undergo slip in shallow slow-slip

events and generate large earthquakes

and tsunamis.

“We hope that this study will

help to explain how distant

earthquakes can trigger slow-slip

episodes at subduction zones.

“By determining how slow-slip

events are triggered and their

relationship to larger earthquakes

at the Hikurangi subduction

zone, we hope to greatly improve

our understanding of the

potential hazards subduction

zone earthquakes and associated

tsunamis pose to New Zealand,”

said Dr Carey.

WHERE IT HAPPENS: A cross-section of the

slow-slip zones at the boundary between the Australian

and Pacific plates. Slow-slips in the south (Kapiti and

Manawatu) happen deeper than those in the north

Be wise and don’t waste water

WITH THE hot weather and

sunshine, it’s a pleasure to be

outside in the garden.

But this time of year can be a

real challenge and you will need

careful planning and proactive

measures to ensure your garden

survives the height of summer.

Water and mulch are your top

weapons to help keep your garden

lush, healthy and productive.

The best mulch is a form of

organic matter that is applied as

a layer on top of your soil in your

garden, around plants, trees, and

especially in pots.

Organic mulches aid water

retention by hindering water

evaporation, keeping the moisture

in the soil. Valuable nutrients are

also added as mulch breaks down

over time. It improves the soil

quality and structure by encouraging

micro-organisms and worm

activity. You can purchase bulk

or bagged mulch from your local

garden centre.

A thick (50-100mm) layer of

mulch around your plants will

help suppress weeds. This means

your plants are not competing for

BE SENSIBLE: Water your garden little and often, or else use mulch to retain moisture.

root space and nutrients. When

mulching around trees, don’t

apply it up to the trunk – think

donut shape around the trunk

instead.

Make sure you mulch new

planting areas too as soil left exposed

to the hot summer sun will

lessen in goodness in and have

reduced water content.

When it comes to watering,

regularly check irrigation systems

if you have them and make sure

all sprinkler heads are operating

well and the timer has been set to

suit the summer weather.

Be regular when watering your

garden, little and often is best,

avoiding the hottest part of the

day when plants are heat stressed.

Once a day in the early morning

or evening up to three times a

week should be plenty, but increase

this if the heat is extreme.

Some plants such as roses and

trees require deep watering to encourage

deep root development,

so apply extra water to those plant

types in the early part of the day.

Water until it begins to puddle

on top of the soil which means

the soil has reached its water

holding capacity. Avoid getting

foliage wet as this can promote

the spread of disease on plants

like tomatoes and roses – aim for

the root zone instead. Don’t over

water – too much of anything is

not good.

If there has been plenty of rainfall

you will not need to water as

regularly. With many plants (trees

and shrubs particularly) if they

are not watered well and regularly

over the hotter summer months,

they will stop growing.

Check your indoor plants.

Increase watering and if necessary

and reposition plants by avoiding

placing them too close to sunny

windows. Don’t forget about

plants in pots or containers, keep

them well watered and remove

any weeds.

If you apply mulch and maintain

a consistent watering regime

then you can expect excellent

results with continued growth

through the hot summer months.

This is critical when establishing

a new garden as you want plants

to grow to maturity as soon as

possible.

Get your leeks growing – they need heat

• By Henri Ham

LEEKS ARE another of those

plants that I often get people telling

me they struggle to grow.

Instead of producing solid,

large leeks, these frustrated gardeners

talk of shrivelled, spring

onion-look-alikes. Leeks are not

a set and forget type of plant, they

require a little love and attention,

and if looked after will be a handy

and tasty vegetable to have in the

garden.

And now is a really good time

to plant them. They take a long

time to grow, so in order to be

ready during winter they need to

be in the ground soon.

Now is also a good time because

even though they need cold

weather, they like to get started

while the weather is still warm.

Find a good place to plant.

GARDEN SUPPLIES

They need to be grown in full sun

and the soil needs to be welldrained.

So if your soil is dense

and compact, break it up with

a garden fork and dig in some

compost and well-rotted manure.

This will help improve the quality

and drainage.

Leeks also prefer the soil to

SLOW

GROWERS:

planted.

They need

constant

attention.

be a neutral to slightly sweet

pH - around 6.5 to 7.5pH. So if

you’ve had a bit of rain (which

can make the soil sour or acidic)

I recommend adding some lime

to the soil a few days before you

plant to help raise its pH level.

I also suggest digging in a

good general fertiliser to help

give your seedlings the right head

start.

When you’ve got the soil all

sorted dig a small trench. Next

place the seedlings in the trench,

approximately 20cm apart. Leeks

need space to expand, and grow

best when planted in rows.

Fill in the trench with soil to

the top of the stems, leaving the

leaves at the top exposed. Now,

give your leeks a light water. Try

to keep the soil constantly moist,

without being too wet.

The tricky part of growing

leeks is they need constant moisture

but can’t stand water-logged

conditions. So, for the first few

weeks after planting, you will

need to check on the soil every

couple of days until they are well

established.

As your plants grow, regularly

fold in the soil around the

stems. Doing this will ensure they

increase in size and will help to

achieve white, chunky, stems.

As I mentioned at the start,

leeks like the soil to be welldrained

and lose. Hoeing the soil

gently on a regular basis will keep

the soil light and fluffy and your

leeks happy.

It will take around three to four

months for your leeks to be ready

to harvest.

The easiest way to tell when

they’re ready is just to keep checking

the size of the part that sticks

out of the soil. When that part is

looking nice and thick, pull one

up and have a look.

A successful harvest will produce

leeks approximately 15cm

tall and 5cm wide. And trust me,

nothing beats home-grown leeks.

Long drive no problem

to entry-level Astra

• By Ross Kiddie

HOLDEN ASTRA: Extensive range for 2018.

I’M A man on a mission.

All too many of my

rock ’n’ roll heroes have

died recently, so I’m intent

on seeing as many of those

still touring and performing

as I can.

The 60s and 70s are widely

regarded as the greatest

era of recorded music,

and one of my idols had

hits through that period –

Vincent Damon Furnier.

Otherwise known as Alice

Cooper, the godfather of

shock rock performed

recently in Wellington, and

I seized the chance to see

him play.

Considering I had an

Interislander voucher to

use up, I chose to drive to

Picton and sail to the capital

on the ferry.

Well, it was a bit of mission

getting to Picton from

Christchurch, requiring

the long inland route after

the Kaikoura earthquake

took care of the coast road,

although now that road has

been reopened.

The car I had for the seven-hour

drive on the inland

route was Holden’s Astra

R hatch and it was perfect

for the journey - quiet,

comfortable, capable and

economical. The entry-level

Astra is a 1.4-litre model

with manual transmission,

a six-speed unit.

There is another engine

available in the Astra

line-up, notably a 1.6, but

the 1399cc turbocharged

unit is a real honey. There

was never a point where I

thought it wasn’t up to the

task. Holden claims power

outputs of 110kW and

245Nm which are generous

for an engine of this size,

and if you take into account

the areas where maximum

torque arrives - 2000rpm to

4000rpm - it’s not working

to fill the transmission

gaps, turbo lag is almost

non-existent.

To be honest, I mostly

used the driver selectable

sport mode, it’s management

protocols tend to

make the throttle a little

more lively, and it will even

allow the engine to relax

slightly as you back off the

accelerator for changes, but

the engine still picks up

sweetly even if you short

shift, such as I did as a fuel

saving measure.

On that subject, Holden

claim a 5.8-litre per 100km

(48mpg) combined cycle

average. Having covered

almost 1000km at mostly

highway speed, the evaluation

car’s fuel usage readout

was constantly listing

6.6l/100km (43mpg), and it

was good to see the average

constantly lowing, even

in the uphill sections. At

100km/h the instantaneous

readout shows around

5l/100km (56mpg), which

are all impressive figures.

• Price – Holden Astra

R, $30,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4386mm;

width, 2042mm;

height, 1485mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,

1399cc,

110kW, 245Nm, sixspeed

manual.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.7.sec

• Fuel usage –

5.8l/100km

On the subject of figures,

the Astra in this form will

also accelerate keenly. Sure,

it isn’t a sports car, but

with an under 10sec time

to make 100km/h from a

standstill, it is no slouch

either, easily keeping pace

during the hard yards. It

will also complete an overtaking

manoeuvre (80km/h

to 120km/h) in 6sec. I had

many overtaking opportunities,

the turbo delivers at

all points of the rev band

and gearing, the Astra R

constantly feels lively.

The Astra in all forms is an

adept handler. High grade

models in the range do have

the benefit of an upgraded

rear suspension in the form

of a Watts linkage in conjunction

with the multiple

link mechanicals, however,

the entry-level car doesn’t get

that, but it still has contained

suspension movement, the

rear end feels tightly connected

with the road.

The other benefit of fully

independent suspension

systems is to promote ride

and handling qualities. That

is taken care of without

too much firming, in my

introduction I mentioned

how comfortable the Astra

is, the spring and damper

rates are set soft-to-medium

and the ride is glorious.

The road from St Arnoud

through the Wairau Valley

is taking a pounding from

the increased traffic, bumps

and ruts are everywhere.

Road crews are working

to repair it, but there

are always areas where the

surface is uneven, the Astra

dealt to the big hits with

dignity, quickly settling

suspension movement. The

Astra also turns sweetly

into a corner, it can be

pushed through the steering

and doesn’t rely on the

quality of the tyres (225/45

x 17in Michelin), there is

little to suggest that the

neutrality noticed through

the steering is going to

manifest in any other form.

The Astra R proved

itself on that long hike,

it is a value model which

offers a reasonable level of

fitment for a $30,990 price

tag. Sure, it’s simple, there’s

not a lot of gadgetry, but

there is everything that will

satisfy, and it gets a five-star

Australasian New Car Assessment

Program rating.

The Astra range in New

Zealand is very extensive.

Holden is marketing the

line-up as a complete series

for a vast array of buyers.

As I’ve eluded to recently

in my sedan evaluation,

it is my favourite; but I’m

smitten with the entry-level

manual hatch, and it must

be said that it performed

admirably when I asked a

lot from it.

Up and down the north

of the South Island is a

challenge given the distance,

but if I had to face

that drive again in the same

car I wouldn’t hesitate.

It’s a car that offers a

lot for little outlay, it’s a

European design but it

feels right at home on New

Zealand roads.

CITY 2 SURF TRAINING PROGRAMME

WEEK 3: Knuckling down and some tips on nutrition and weight loss

In week 3 the early excitement of the City 2 Surf project you

have undertaken is wearing off. You may not have sensed a

big improvement in fitness levels yet and other commitments

are getting in the way of training. After your determined

start the first doubts set in: “Can I do this?” This is the time

to knuckle down. You need another 2 or 3 consistent weeks

before you notice a significant improvement in fitness and

energy levels and perhaps some noticeable weight loss. Once

that happens you will be well on your way.

The best time of day to exercise is early morning. It is good to

get it out of the way and it will energise you for the rest of the

day. Later in the day you might just feel that little bit of fatigue

or things crop up which will tempt you to say “tomorrow is

another day….” This can easily become habit and before you

know it you have lost one or 2 training sessions every week.

Of course you might have a good reason for not being able

to get out early. Getting the children up and organised is one

of these, although….is there a chance that your partner can

play a role? Other times of the day for your training session

are perfectly fine too but good planning is required. A light

snack (toast/bread, fruit) before your early morning training

session is generally recommended to assist your blood sugar

levels. This also applies if you exercise later in the morning or

afternoon. Breakfast or a meal after training will assist with

replenishing energy stores. Exercising before going to bed

might keep you awake for a while if you are a light sleeper.

This programme

and accompanying

information are written

as a guide only. If you

are concerned about

your health at any stage

please undergo a health

check with your GP.

TIP OF THE WEEK

(from the SporstMed sports nutrition department):

If you need to lose some weight, then this training programme will help

you. But it will only do so if you pay attention to your nutrition at the

same time. Healthy choices include bread and or cereals for breakfast,

sandwiches or a salad for lunch and an evening meal consisting of plenty

of vegetables with fish, chicken or lean meat. Pasta and rice are also

good staple foods for active people. One helping and avoidance of rich

desserts will assist your weight loss. A healthy snack mid morning and

afternoon will help you get through the day. Fruit is always an excellent

choice. Avoid fatty foods and snacks with refined sugars. Special diets

might help you lose weight in the short term but are hard to sustain

and not always balanced or healthy in the long term. If you need help

with your nutrition or weight loss this might be a good time to have a

consultation with an expert, like one of the SportsMed nutritionists.

Bates breaks Olympian’s record

• By Gordon Findlater

PROMISING young swimmer

Hannah Bates has broken one of

Canterbury’s longest standing

records in the pool.

Bates, 17, set the fastest time

ever recorded at the Swimming

Canterbury West Coast

championships in the women’s

200m individual medley. The

open record was previously held

by three-time Olympian and

Commonwealth Games bronze

medallist Helen Lesslie (nee

Norfolk).

The Aquagym swimmers time

also broke the 17-year-agegroup

record which was also

previously held by Lesslie.

Hannah swam the evening

session in a scorching 2min

17.29sec shaving .06sec off

Lesslie’s open record of 2min

17.35sec which has stood since

2000.

“After my first race in the

morning my coach told me he

thought I could get the record,”

said Bates

“He was poolside smacking

From Wimbledon to West Coast

• By Gordon Findlater

THREE YEARS ago

Englishman Harry Weeds was

representing his county on the

lush grass courts of Wimbledon.

At the weekend, he won the

West Coast Open during which

time he slept in his car at a

campground.

“I spent the first night in my

car but had to have the door

open all night because it was

stinking hot. I splashed out on

Saturday night and stayed in a

cabin,” said Weeds.

Now living in Woolston and a

Cashmere Tennis Club member,

he dominated the cultured

AstroTurf at the Grey United

Tennis Club going unbeaten over

two days of competition.

The 23-year-old decided to

his programme against his

hand while I was in the pool.

When I came up he was clapping

and cheering. I looked over

at mum and she was almost in

tears so I knew I had broken the

record.”

After the accomplishment

Lesslie commented on a

Facebook post by Swimming

enter the tournament due to the

holiday break in the Canterbury

premier inter-club competition

and to also explore the sights of

Greymouth.

Weeds went through the tournament

relatively untested until

his final match against Vaughan

Kingi. Weeds found himself

down a break in both sets of the

match but rallied to win 7-6, 6-4.

He also teamed up with Kingi

to win the doubles title. Weeds

was awarded $200 for winning

the singles title and $75 for the

doubles.

“It was a successful trip.

That covered all of my petrol,

food and accommodation,”

said Weeds. He celebrated his

win by visiting the Monteith’s

Brewing Co and spending

some of his prizemoney on beer

Canterbury West Coast to congratulate

Bates. The 17-year-old

then messaged Lesslie privately

to show her appreciation.

“It was really cool. She didn’t

have to take time out of her day

to do that,” said Bates.

“She told me she had been

keeping an eye on me since

youth Commonwealth Games

tasting and fries.

The Golden Lager was my favourite.

It was a very refreshing

drop after a gruelling two days

of battle on the West Coast,” said

Weeds.

In June, he moved to Christchurch

from Norwich, England,

for what he describes as a working

adventure.

Weeds has played on a number

of courts at Wimbledon during

his time in England. In 2014, he

represented his county, Norfolk,

in a match against the All England

Lawn Tennis and Croquet

Club.

Retaining his West Coast titles

in 2019 has already been added

to his to-do list while in New

Zealand. “I’ll definitely be back.

Greymouth has given itself a

special place in my heart.”

and I could talk to her if I ever

needed advice.”

Lesslie’s best performance in

the 200m individual medley

came at the 2004 Athens Olympics

where she qualified for the

semi-final. In the semi-final

she swam in a time of 2min

17.41sec.

At the Canterbury West Coast

championships Bates also competed

in breaststroke, freestyle,

backstroke and butterfly events

and won seven gold and one

silver medal in total.

For the seventh year in a row,

the championships were held in

Dunedin due to Christchurch

not having a 50m pool.

It was also a successful event

for Christchurch club JASI

which won the club points competition

at Otago-Canterbury-

West Coast championships.

The Jellie Park-based club

finished on 3806 points ahead of

Dunedin’s Neptune Swim Club,

3391pts, Wharenui, 2615pts,

QE II, 2505pts, and Aquagym,

1982pts.

TOURIST: Harry

Weeds (right) played on

Wimbledon’s court seven

with friend Charlie Horn in

2015. On Sunday he won

the West Coast Open in

Greymouth. ​

In Brief

GARVEY LINKS UP WITH KO

Amelia Garvey has left

Christchurch to learn from

former world No 1 Lydia Ko in the

United States. Garvey will travel

with Auckland’s Rose Zheng to

Scottsdale in Phoenix, Arizona, and

spend time with Ko, training and

playing ​at one of the most exclusive

golfing establishments in the world

after being offered the scholarship

by New Zealand Golf and Ko. The

former Burnside High student is

ranked No 1 in Canterbury and

ninth in the New Zealand amateur

rankings. Garvey will spend time

with Ko until Saturday learning

about the game she wants to pursue

as a career.

SPEEDWAY SPRINTCARS

A line-up of top sprintcars will

contest the 16th annual Gold Cup

event at Ruapuna Speedway this

weekend. Australian Allan

Woods is among the entries along

with five North Island-based

drivers including former national

champions Jamie McDonald

and Jamie Larsen. McDonald’s

entry will surprise some as he

was involved in a horrific crash

at Western Springs, Auckland, in

December, which destroyed his car.

He has a new machine to finish the

season in. A strong South Island

contingent includes Jamie Duff who

contested the national title race last

weekend at Western Springs but was

eliminated early in the final when

a tyre exploded. Racing starts at

6.30pm on Friday and Saturday.

TOUGH TASK FOR CRICKETERS

New Zealand face an uncertain

and tough task in their Under-19

Cricket World Cup quarter-final

at Hagley Oval today against

Afghanistan. The host’s opposition

may not be a traditional cricket

powerhouse. However, coming into

the tournament many considered

Afghanistan a dark horse to take the

trophy after winning the U19 Asian

Cup where they defeated Pakistan.

Their squad features two players with

senior international experience. Leftarm

pace bowler and local player

Connor Sullivan will be hoping to

feature in the New Zealand XI in

front of a home crowd.

MORE PROPERTIES

ARE URGENTLY NEEDED!

If you are thinking of selling, then

please give me a call.

Marketing your property

– what does it mean?

Marketing a property is more than

presentation and advertising.

Conceptually, marketing is identifying

what prospective buyers are looking for

then providing this. For example, larger

homes and sections may appeal more

to families. Young couples starting out,

generally have tight budgets leading them

to smaller properties, while older people

may be looking to downsize.

Brand new has a particular appeal

however there will always be a market for

established homes. Having a picture in

your mind of the type of buyer will help

in determining the features to emphasise.

If repairs and maintenance need to be

carried out before putting the property

on the market, seek the advice of a real

estate agent. They can advise on what

tasks are worth completing and what

might be unnecessary expense. Avoid

going overboard unless the capital value

of properties in the area justifies this.

Real estate agents are in contact with

prospective buyers so are aware of what

they are looking for. Draw on their

expertise and advice to help make the

most of the selling opportunity.

When promoting a property, mix it up

and be creative so your property stands

out from the rest. Present the features the

property offers as benefits to potential

buyers.

Buyer perception is also significant. For

example, properties that sit for a while

can become stale. Resting the property by

taking it off the market for a short time,

then relisting perhaps in spring or when

sales in the area appear to lift a little, can

make a difference. However, if a property

does not sell immediately there is no need

for panic or dropping the price. It may

simply be that the right buyer has not

yet come along. If the mix is right your

property will sell.

DENTON PARK - NOTICE OF PROPOSED PARTIAL

CHANGES IN RESERVE CLASSIFICATION AND

THE MANAGEMENT PLAN

The proposal to build a new Hornby Library, Customer Services and South West

Leisure Centre on Denton Park requires a part change in reserve classification to one

that covers community buildings, and changes to the Denton Park Management Plan.

DENTON PARK

The project to build a new Hornby Library, Customer Services and South West Leisure

Centre is provided for in the Christchurch City Council’s Long Term Plan 2010-25. The

Council at its meeting on 24 August 2017 approved Denton Park as the preferred

location for the new complex. This is proposed to be sited on part of Denton Park

fronting the Main South Road.

Denton Park is a recreation reserve subject to the provisions of the Reserves Act 1977.

To ensure the proper control, management, use and development, it is appropriate

that the part of Denton Park reserve on which the new complex is proposed to be sited

is classified for the intended purpose of community buildings. Also, the Denton Park

Management Plan is required to be amended to reflect this proposed development

on Denton Park.

The Christchurch City Council thereby gives notice as follows:

Proposed Change of Reserve Classification - Part of Denton Park

It is proposed to change the reserve classification for the parcel of land specified in

Schedule A below from Recreation Reserve to Local Purpose (Community Buildings)

Reserve in accordance with Section 24(1)(b) of the Reserves Act 1977.

Schedule A

Part of Rural Section 41304, contained in Computer Freehold Register 504741,

comprising 9766 square metres subject to survey and marked “A” on the plan below.

Changes to the Denton Park Management Plan

It is proposed to change the Denton Park Management Plan to accommodate the new

Hornby Library, Customer Services and South West Leisure Centre and to incorporate

other minor changes and corrections.

An indicative plan of the area of land proposed to be subject to the proposed change

in reserve classification, and the draft proposed changes to the Management Plan, are

available for inspection during ordinary office hours at the Civic Offices, 53 Hereford

Street, Christchurch. Copies can also be inspected at the Hornby Library, Goulding

Avenue, Hornby, and on the Council’s website (www.ccc.govt.nz/HaveYourSay).

Persons or organisations interested in these proposals are asked to make submissions

or objections to the Council. These, clearly identifying which matter is being

addressed, should be made in writing no later than 5pm on Monday 26 March 2018.

You can do this:

• online at www.ccc.govt.nz/HaveYourSay;

• email ann.campbell@ccc.govt.nz;

• mail (no stamp required) to Freepost Authority No. 178, Ann Campbell, Engagement

Advisor, PO Box 73013, Christchurch 8154;

• hand deliver to Civic Offices, 53 Hereford Street.

Submitters should state in their submission if they wish to appear before a hearings

panel to be heard in support of their submission or objection.

For further information contact Derek Roozen, Senior Network Planner Parks, phone
