Fugitive breaks his silence

over $200k jewellery heist

Suspect says he is not well enough

to have committed burglary

FUGITIVE CRAIG Murray

Shaw has gone public saying

he isn’t the $200,000 rooftop

burglar.

The 42-year-old is wanted

in connection with the audacious

break-in of La Bu at

The Tannery in Woolston in

November.

The burglar cut a hole in

the roof of The Tannery, then

smashed through a wall into

the jewellery business and left

back via the roof again – with

$200,000 of jewellery.

The heist happened in the

early hours of the morning.

Police issued a warrant for

Shaw’s arrest last week. He

has been a suspect since the

burglary.

But yesterday, Shaw, who

is on the run, spoke to Stuff

saying police were chasing the

wrong man.

“I haven’t been a well person.

I’m not capable of climbing

on top of a roof,” he said.

Shaw said he had bad asthma.

“I have had eight hospital

admissions in the last year,”

he said.

But Detective Sergeant

Damon Wells told The Star

Shaw has had a “number of

opportunities” to speak with

police. Shaw had “failed to

keep the appointments set up

to do so.”

“I personally think him

saying he is innocent in the

media does not make it fact.

A truly innocent man would

come straight to us, not via

the media,” said Detective

Sergeant Wells.

Shaw is also wanted for

questioning in connection

with two similar burglaries

of a petrol station in Linwood

and a dairy.

Shaw was summonsed to

appear in the district court on

January 31 but failed to appear

and a warrant was issued for

his arrest.

He told Stuff he received

about 200 rings from an

acquaintance, who he declined

to name, in December last

year to cover a debt.

“I didn’t want to take them,

I didn’t know where they came

from, but it was three weeks

before Christmas and I had no

money so I took them and sold

them to one person.

“From that police have gone:

‘Oh this guy had some of

them, must’ve done it.’

“I actually don’t know

the details of the Tannery

burglary. I know it’s before

December. [Police] have got

one little lead and jumped

on it and they’re looking for

someone to pin it on,” he told

Stuff.

Shaw said he was staying

with someone “who cares for

me.”

Said Detective Sergeant

Wells: “I am happy to speak

with him about the matter, all

he has to do is come see us.”

‘I’M INNOCENT’: Craig Murray Shaw (above) in a police-supplied photo

from 2017 and (left) a photo supplied to Stuff yesterday. Shaw says

police are looking for the wrong man.

News.................................... 3-15

FUN AND games ahead in the

next few days I suspect as the

police go into overdrive to track

down the individual on our

front page today.

Craig Murray Shaw is wanted

for the $200,000 jewellery store

burglary at The Tannery in

November.

Police have had him in their

hands previously on another

matter but he’s managed to slip

the tight grip they can, and do,

apply.

But he’s now decided to

defend the allegations against

him, not in the dock, but in the

media.

Shaw spoke to Stuff yesterday

saying there’s no way he could

have been the burglar, he’s

not well enough. He’s got bad

asthma, he says, which would

have stopped him in his tracks

carrying out a fairly physical

sort of burglary.

Shaw isn’t the first person on

the run to pick up the phone

and chat with the news media

and he won’t be the last.

But it does not go down too

well with the long arm of the

law.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw fire

spread through buildings in

High, Cashel and Lichfield Sts

on February 6, 1908. Stranges

Department Store (right) was

affected along with DIC, Ashby

Berghs and the White Hart

Hotel. On the same day in 1914

a new evening newspaper, the

Sun, appeared. The independent

paper caused a sensation

in the industry because of its

modern style and lavish use of

Volunteer not

kicking back

illustrations. It later became the

Christchurch Star-Sun, then the

Christchurch Star. On February

9, 1898, Canterbury skies were

darkened by smoke from Australian

bush fires, it was labelled

black Wednesday. On the same

day in 1917, the Scott statue,

sculpted by his widow Kathleen,

was unveiled opposite the Municipal

Offices in Oxford Tce.

On February 10, 1913, news

reaches Christchurch of the

Scott expedition’s fate. The city’s

special relationship with the expedition

caused deep mourning

over the tragedy. On February

11, 1843, the Deans, Gebbie

and Manson families sailed

from Wellington on the Richmond

to settle at Riccarton. On

February 11, 1928, St George’s

private hospital was opened. On

February 12, 1905, the Catholic

Cathedral – designed by F W

Petre was opened.

In Brief

FAMILY SUPPORTED

The public has rallied around

a family desperately searching

for their missing teenager who

is feared to have drowned near

Scarborough Beach. Jack Sutton,

14, was swimming with a friend

on a teachers only day on Monday

when he was washed away by

strong waves. His friend made

it out and raised the alarm

about 3.20pm. His mother Sue

Sutton was not prepared to speak

about her son when approached

yesterday, but said the community

has been amazing.

MURDER TRIAL STARTS

The trial of the man accused

of murdering Christchurch

sex worker Renee Larissa

Duckmanton will start on

Monday. Sainey Marong is

accused of killing the 22-yearold

on May 15, 2016. Marong,

a 33-year-old butcher from

Ilam, denies murdering Ms

Duckmanton in Christchurch the

day before her body was found

among a scrub fire on Main

Rakaia Rd, north of Rakaia. ​The

trial is expected to last three

weeks.

CDHB to undergo

THE CANTERBURY

District Health Board has

requested an internal audit

review of both board and

executive expenses.

It was to ensure “all of

the right checks and balances

are in place”, CDHB

chief executive David

Meates said in his monthly

update to 10,000 staff,

ministers, other DHBs

and unions.

The audit comes in the

aftermath of concerns

about over spending

irregularities by former

Waikato DHB chief Dr

Nigel Murray, which sent

ripples through other district

health boards around

the country.

Mr Meates, who is also

chief executive at West

Coast DHB, said it was

disappointing to see high

profile examples in other

parts of the country of

senior health leaders

behaving in ways that

erode public confidence

in the leadership of New

Zealand’s health system.

“Abuse of public funds

AUDIT: The Canterbury District Health Board wants

that should be supporting

better care for communities

is never okay.”

He said the poor behaviour

had cast a spotlight

on New Zealand’s 20

DHBs and whether there

were too many, and the

costs associated with

boards and executive

teams.

But Mr Meates has hit

back at calls to cut the

number of DHBs, saying

they are “big, complex

organisations”.

Waikato District Health

The Star

Board member Mary

Anne Gill has called for

DHBs to be cut from 20

to five, to free up what she

calls wasted money on

duplicated services.

It cost about $66 million

per year for just 444 chief

executives, senior executives

and board members

to run the country’s

DHBs.

That amount did not

include the hundreds of

thousands of staff, or the

senior executive and board

members’ spending.

spending audit

Mr Meates said DHBs, often the

biggest employers in their region,

were unlike other businesses for

several reasons:

• DHBs can’t close their doors –

health is a 24/7 operation

They can’t put up

prices or generate more

revenue.

• Demand always outstrips

the ability to deliver.

Canterbury and West

Coast DHBs served a population

of 600,000 with a

budget of $1.8 billion.

Compared to some

of New Zealand’s biggest businesses

in terms of employees,

the DHB was 11th largest behind

Fletcher Construction with 18,600;

Progressive Enterprises, 18,500;

Fonterra, 18,000; Defence, 13,930;

The Warehouse, 12,000; NZ Police,

11,980; K-Mart, 11,000; Air New

Zealand, 11,000; Oji Fibre (Carter

Holt), 10,500; and Spotless, 10,000.

“In anyone’s terms, we are big.

The nature of what we do is complex

too.

“This is why it is critical that

we have the right governance and

leadership arrangements in place

and robust systems underpinning

what we do.”

He said every one of the DHB’s

systems was subject to extensive

David Meates

external audits, credentialing and

certification and health and safety

audits, and that board committees

played a critical role in monitoring

performance.

Canterbury though had

a history of organised

primary care and strong

relationships between

primary and community

services and secondary

care, he said.

At the same time the

South Island Alliance had

enabled a shared electronic

health record to now cover

one million people in the South

Island.

Mr Meates pointed out that before

DHBs there were 23 hospitals

and health services, one Health

Funding Authority and the Ministry

of Health.

That was preceded by 23 Crown

health enterprises, four regional

health authorities and the MoH.

Before that there were 14 area

health boards and even further

back there were 30 health boards.

The Canterbury board will hear

the results of its expenses audit at a

meeting in mid-February.

In December the New Zealand

Herald revealed that chief executives

spent $1.2m in three years on

travel and training.

Court appearance

for luxury car dealer

• By Kurt Bayer and Andrew King

LUXURY CAR dealer Angus

Mauger Cockram has appeared

in court after a warrant was

issued for his arrest when he

failed to appear on Monday.

Cockram, 52 (right),

director of the Euromarque

dealership in

Christchurch, which

sells Maseratis, Ferraris,

Alfa Romeos, Fiats,

Mercedes-Benz, and

Range Rovers has been

charged with dangerous

driving and failing to stop for

police during December.

He was summonsed to appear

at the district court on Monday,

but he allegedly didn’t show

and court staff confirmed on

Monday afternoon a warrant for

his arrest had been issued.

He appeared yesterday and is

scheduled to reappear on February

28 in the district court.

Charging documents allege

Cockram drove a Euromarque

vehicle dangerously on Mouse

Point Rd just north of Culverden

on December 30 last year.​

It’s alleged he also failed to

stop for police flashing blue and

red lights, or sounding a

siren, and then intentionally

obstructed a police

constable in the execution

of his duty.

Cockram was not

answering calls

yesterday.

The Cockram family is

well-known in Christchurch

automotive circles. The

Cockram Motor Group dates

back to 1940.

Angus Cockram is a director

of Cockram Motor Group,

Euromarque Holdings, and

Gary Cockram Blenheim, along

with various other companies.

He also owns several properties

in the city and has been an outspoken

critic of the post-quake

rebuild.

$10,000 bid for medical research

• By Andrew King

LAST YEAR Leanne Corboy

had a wheelchair pushed beside

her by husband Craig while she

walked the Star Media City2Surf

to raise money for the Bowel and

Liver Trust.

He thought she might collapse

before making the finish line.

But this year not only will

the wheelchair be left at home,

she will have a small army of

followers all walking to raise

money for the trust, which she

said has changed her life.

Mrs Corboy, 31, was diagnosed

with Crohn’s disease and

endometriosis by equipment

purchased by the trust for

Christchurch Hospital, a

breakthrough which would have

been impossible without the

machine.

Her goal this year is to

raise $10,000 for the trust in

aid of finding a cure, and her

workplace, Bupa’s Parklands

Care Home, is getting behind her

and her supporters, matching

their donations up to $2000.

“We are trying to find a cure

and we are urging anyone to join

the team and help us find a cure,”

she said.

So far 45 people have come

forward to say they will walk

with her, but she expects the

number to get much bigger.

And she said participating in

the City2Surf is the perfect way

to do it.

“I walk 7km every morning,

not just for training, but for

myself. I will walk in the 14km in

the City2Surf,” she said.

Before her first go at the run, it

was a real challenge, she said.

Celebrations at Old Stone House

• By Bridget Rutherford

CRACROFT’S historic Old Stone

House has reopened following

a $2 million earthquake

restoration project.

An official opening ceremony

was held yesterday where Mayor

Lianne Dalziel cut the ribbon to

celebrate the category two heritage

building’s reopening.

Among those in attendance

was Caroline Murray, a greatgreat

granddaughter of Sir John

Cracroft Wilson, who built it at

the foot of the Port Hills in 1870.

Others to attend included city

councillors, Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board members

and MPs Ruth Dyson and Nuk

Korako.

Several former gardeners attended,

including 88-year-old

Mervyn Osborne who had looked

after the grounds for 27 years.

The Old Stone House, on Shalamar

Drive, was damaged in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

It is not the first time the

building has been risen from the

ashes.

It was rebuilt by the community

in 1979 after it was reduced

to a shell by fire in July 1971.

Ms Murray said after surviving

a fire and earthquake damage,

the Old Stone House had a “stubborn

heart like its founder.”

The repair work included

installing new diaphragm

walls and roof connections, the

replacement of the stone lintels

and sealing the concrete walls

and foundations with pressureinjected

epoxy.

City council garden and heritage

parks operations manager

Nicky Brown said the Old Stone

House held many memories for

residents.

“We look forward to many

more celebrations and gatherings

at this wonderful site.”

THUrsdaY JanUarY 31 2013

The Old Stone House was

originally built by Sir John to

house his Indian employees.

It sat near the Cracroft House

homestead, which was built between

1854 and 1856. The house

was demolished after the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

Before the quake, the Old Stone

House was used as a community

centre and wedding venue, and

hosted events.

An open day will be held on

February 17 from 1.30pm for

people to go and see the building.

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY has

told its staff, students and on-site

partners to drink only boiled

water after its supply failed water

testing.

Acting on advice from the

Canterbury District Health Board

water assessor, Lincoln issued a

boil water notice on Tuesday.

Vice Chancellor Professor

Robin Pollard said the

university’s water typically rated

at the high end of the compliance

range and this was an isolated

incident.

“THe university has identified

the source of the contamination

as being within the water supply

system. The well which the

university draws its water from is

not compromised.”

He said, to date, Lincoln was

not aware of anyone becoming

sick from the water.

Disinfectant had been added

to the water supply network, circulated

through the system and

flushed.

Testing would be conducted

daily, until three consecutive

clear tests were received.

The university operates its own

drinking water system and is

classified as a self-supplier.

Outrage leads to bin clearing

• By Sarla Donovan

RUBBISH BINS will be emptied

twice a day in Sumner after the

city council was criticised for

failing to keep up with clearing

them.

The bins were previously

scheduled for one collection a

day, Sunday-Friday, and two on

Saturday.

However, scorching

temperatures drawing people

to the beach put pressure on

the bins – leading residents to

speak out.

Now an evening collection

has been added to the daily

schedule, which includes

Taylors Mistake.

City council acting head of

parks Brent Smith said there

had been an increase in rubbish

volumes. Its contractor had

collected 20 per cent more

rubbish when compared to the

same period last year.

As well as the extra

collections, the city council was

investigating other changes.

“We’re looking at the number

and style of bins we provide

and we are also looking at

improved signage to inform

and encourage appropriate

behaviour,’’ Mr Smith said.

He said the city council has

rubbish dumping reported.

“We have had 72 requests

for service come in over the

past two months that relate to

rubbish being dumped illegally,

which is an unacceptably high

number,” he said. “We do

our best to keep our beaches,

parks and public spaces tidy

by making sure we regularly

empty the rubbish bins, but

we need the public to play

their part too and take some

civic responsibility,’’ Mr Smith

said.

Night ban

NIGHT-TIME restrictions are

Following negative public feedback,

However, a final recommendation

to the city council will only be made

The time restrictions would

prohibit vehicles under 3500kg from

10pm-5am, Thursday to Monday,

and on public holidays. They were

an attempt to address concerns

about anti-social road use, safety,

vandalism, fire and littering.

Public consultation resulted in

865 submissions – 545 did not

support the proposal, 221 were in

support, and 99 were in support but

had some concerns.

Objections included restricting

that it could drive the problem

Maddie’s out of hospital

A trip down memory lane

• By Sarla Donovan

TAKE A trip down memory lane

this weekend at the fifth annual

Nostalgia Festival.

The event, held at Ferrymead

Heritage Park on Saturday, was

recently named as one of the

fastest growing and most-loved

festivals in the country by Air

New Zealand, organiser Johnny

Gibson said.

He has curated an eclectic

range of acts for all ages and flavours

this year, from cult Dunedin

pop-rock group The Chills

to Los Angeles-based musical

prodigy Connan Mockasin.

It retains a local edge with

award-winning singer-songwriter

and Heathcote resident,

Amiria Grenell, appearing with

Amy Grace on the main stage as

The Swan Sisters.

Grenell’s latest, Autumn, was

a finalist for best folk album at

the 2016 New Zealand Music

Awards.

She has toured Australasia

with Fly My Pretties and is in

demand for festivals and events,

both as a solo performer and a

children’s entertainer.

Also on the main stage,

Lyttelton-based musician

Richard Larsen appears with

The Blind Care Company has been

cleaning and repairing the region’s blinds

for over 60 years. Those six decades

have seen changes in both fashion and

technology. Styles have ranged from

festooned fabric swags to straightforward

and still popular holland roller blinds,

from vertical to horizontal slat systems,

and in every colour or pattern popular

since the 1960s.

Wellington group producing

bright, psychedelic pop tunes.

About 600 people attended the

inaugural Nostalgia Festival in

2014 – this year, more than four

thousand are expected.

Mr Gibson said it is a “community-minded”

festival.

“We grow organically – we

don’t have a huge marketing

budget and blast it across the

city. An underground festival is

probably the best way to describe

it; it’s unique to the city and

can be removed so that your blinds

smell fresh and are restored to their

original glory. The company can repair

blinds also, having a huge range of parts

in stock. And if you want something

completely new, a great range of blinds is

available for purchase.

The company prides itself on efficient

service, providing a fast turn-around,

with most work taking one or two

days, and a same day cleaning option is

available. It makes it as easy as possible

for clients. The Cashel Street location

couldn’t be more convenient and a pickup

and drop-off service is available. 150

blinds per day can be cleaned at this site,

unique to Ferrymead Heritage

Park.”

A second stage has been

added this year showcasing local

emerging artists and old school

vinyl-spinning DJs like Pylonz

and Instant Fantasy and the

experienced Simon Kong.

Don’t expect hot dogs and

“We’ve been accredited as a

conscious consumer festival

three years ago so we have been

working with the city council

on a zero waste system as well;

we’ll have reusable cups. We try

to have as little an impact on the

venue as possible.”

As well as music, food and

drink, there are street performers,

hourly theatre shows, steam

train rides and all of the regular

attractions within the park.

The festival is popular with

families and children, and to

support those with little ones,

Plunket Canterbury is providing

a feeding and nappy change station

as well.

or one of their mobile vans can do up to

your home or office, remove and clean

your blinds on the spot and reinstall them

for you.

A cut-down and size alteration service

is available in order that the blinds you

bought are a perfect fit.

They are experts in their field with a

huge amount of experience to draw on.

In fact, all their staff has been on board

for at least 8 years, and many up to 20

years. Whatever the job involves, they

will work hard to make sure it gets done,

including one job of 800 blinds which

they completed in 4 days.

Bid to reclaim Maori literary tradition

CANTERBURY University

researchers have created

a comprehensive, online,

annotated bibliography of

writing by Māori in English, and

released it to the world.

The Kōmako (www.komako.

org.nz) project, spanning 26

years of work, is based on doctoral

research at the university

by Dr Bridget Underhill (Ngāti

Raukawa), who is also the project’s

lead editor.

The website, which covers

more than 180 years of writing,

has been created both as a tool

for those researching Māori

writing and as a vehicle for the

continued updating and inclusion

of new works by Māori

writers, “gathering together

the great treasury of writing by

Māori,” she says.

The idea of compiling a

bibliography of Māori writers

emerged in the early 1990s while

I was studying New Zealand

literature at Canterbury University,”

Dr Underhill said.

“This bibliography is part of a

movement to reclaim the Māori

literary tradition, which has had

a history of being marginalised.”

Dr Underhill says there were

two stages of the Kōmako journey

– the research, compilation

and completion of the bibliography

towards her PhD from

1992-1998; and the subsequent

updating and digitising of the

bibliography to create the website

from 2003 to the present.

The Kōmako database and

website were created by Canterbury

University lecturer in Digital

Humanities Dr Christopher

Thomson, with head of Māori

& Indigenous Studies Professor

Jeanette King joining the project

as an adviser and student Tiana

Ratana providing research assistance

in recent years.

A central goal of the project,

which covers more than 1450

authors, is to return the research

to the Māori writing community,

Dr Underhill said.

The bibliography shows the

wide range of Māori writing

– fiction, non-fiction and traditional

Māori genres – and makes

many lesser known writers more

visible. It is publicly accessible

and a central goal was to use the

website to return the research to

the Māori writing community.”

Since its inception, Dr

Underhill has worked in

partnership with Te Hā – the

Māori writers committee of

Seafarer

funding

meeting

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Sarla Donovan

A MEETING will be held with

Lyttelton Port of Christchurch to

discuss funding for the seafarers

centre – including a possible levy

on visiting ships.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel has asked

Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner

and city council staff to meet with

LPC and report back within two

months.

The issue of how the centre is

funded was raised as part of a

Banks Peninsula Community

Board report to the city council

last Thursday.

The chairman of the Lyttelton

Seafarers’ Centre charitable trust

John McLister, wants to see a

port levy on visiting ships to fund

longer opening hours and a fulltime

welfare officer.

He said the city council has a

moral obligation to provide for

seafarer welfare under the Maritime

Labour Convention.

Currently, LPC contributes

$5000 yearly towards running

costs at the centre, which provides

currency exchange, Wi-Fi, phone

and welfare services from 7-10pm

Monday-Friday but Mr McLister

said that was not enough.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Medicinal cannabis: Striking a balance

MEDICINAL

cannabis is a

complex, challenging

and emotion-laden

issue so there was

plenty of discussion

in Parliament last

week as two bills

came up for debate.

What we are all looking for

is a way to deliver safe and

effective, affordable cannabisbased

medicines for those that

need them, while protecting

vulnerable communities from

increased drug use.

Both bills were amendments

to the Misuse of Drugs Act. They

respond to the general mood for

the liberalisation of cannabis use

for medicinal purposes within

the country. The first was a

Government bill, the second a

Green Party members bill. But

not surprisingly, neither delivers

Nicky Wagner

a perfect solution. The Government’s

bill does very little and

the Greens Party’s bill goes too

far.

The Government bill is a ‘stopgap’

measure which provides a

statutory defence for the possession

and use of illicit cannabis

to people who are terminally

ill and expected to die within

12 months. What that does for

patients is take away the fear

of the consequences of the illegal

act of using cannabis. But

unfortunately, it does nothing

about providing legal products.

And it does not include anyone

with ongoing chronic pain or

severe and debilitating illness.

But the second part of the bill

is where the potential for an effective

solution may lie, because

it provides a regulatory power

to set up a Medicinal Cannabis

Scheme. The bill was rushed

through, so there is no detail

around that, but I believe it’s

a move in the right direction.

Parliament also agreed and the

bill passed unanimously.

The Green Party’s bill was considered

so loose that it was unworkable

and it was voted down

73 against and 47 in favour.

There is a lot more work to do

to develop an effective Medicinal

Cannabis Scheme but we now

have the opportunity to create

an evidence-based framework to

underpin a scheme.

The aim would be to provide

secure access for patients, consistent

and assured quality of

product, affordability and a safe,

well-managed supply chain. The

bill has been sent to the Health

Select Committee of which I am

a member and you can be sure

that we will be working hard to

get the best possible outcome for

New Zealanders. Submissions

will be called for next week.

Central

Cracroft house restoration

IT WAS thrilling to

attend the reopening

of the Cracroft

Old Stone House

yesterday. Apart from

congratulating all

those who worked on

the project, it was fascinating to

traverse the history.

The house was built by Sir

John Cracroft Wilson on his

Cashmere Estate in 1870-71 as

quarters for his farm workers.

Wilson had arrived in Christchurch

from a life as a distinguished

civil servant in India,

and he named the 1000 acres

(404ha) he purchased in 1854

after his favourite Indian region

– Kashmir. In Hindi, Kashmir

means “a land desiccated by water”,

which was very appropriate

for the swamplands he encountered

here.

Christchurch has many fine

stone buildings, all built for

prominence or power, but the

Lianne Dalziel

old stone house is the only one

built as a workers’ quarters.

With this in mind, its beautiful

design and construction is all

the more ironic, especially when

you compare it to the mud and

brick house that Sir John lived

in on the estate. The building is

a rare example of the Englishstyle,

lobby entry houses typical

of Britain’s agricultural architecture

of the late 17th century.

After his death in 1881, Sir

John’s son, Frederick Herbert

Wilson, continued with the

family tradition and the estate

and stone house remained in the

family. Up until 1930, the house

provided accommodation for

farm workers, and during World

War 2 the house was used by the

signals section of the Combined

Headquarters Southern. In

1966, the house was gifted to the

Student Christian Movement by

John Frederick Cracroft Wilson,

Sir John’s great-grandson.

On July 10, 1971, one of the

student’s very kindly left a lamp

on his pillow so his friends

could see when they came back

later that night. Unfortunately,

this started the fire that severely

damaged the old stone house,

destroying the roof.

Enter Norman and Betty

Roberts – it took several years

of tireless campaigning, but this

couple managed to secure the

house’s future, demonstrating to

the Heathcote County Council

that the building had real potential.

In 1978, the restoration

began.

The interior of the house was

altered and the walls of the

building strengthened. Elements

of the 1978 restoration have

their own architectural significance,

and make the house

the first stone building in New

Zealand to be totally reinforced

with concrete.

The Roberts’ wrote a book on

the house, the back of which

reads ‘Colonial to Community’.

That sums up the building’s

journey. Without the tender

loving care of people like the

Wilsons, and the Roberts’ and

the team who completed the

latest restoration, what could

have been simply a historical

footnote has become an integral

part of our community.

Peter Coleman gives his views

on the city council’s Smart

Cities programme

EX-LABOUR MP Mayor Lianne

Dalziel and councillors Vicki Buck

and Phil Clearwater are selling us

a creative, communist vision for

our fair city, as if they thought of it

themselves.

THus we have the electric airport

bus, and the awful

cycle lanes. This is

not their vision, but

the United Nation’s

Agenda 21 – the

infamous 17 SDGs

(sustainability

goals), the compact of mayors.

Without people wanting it, Smart

Cities has arisen from the newspeak

word – “sustainability.” They

want to shunt us (and get farmers

off their land) into “affordable”

accommodation. They want us, out

of our cars and using shared bikes

and public transport. The electric

car choice is a transitional ploy.

Local councils like ours, are using

ratepayers’ money to fund these

projects, as though we have chosen

this path. Dalziel is misleading us,

but we can vote them out.

Andrew Moore

Wildlife park volunteer shows no

Most people in their

70s are looking to take

it easy, but Andrew

Moore, 76, is the

exact opposite. The

Russley man fills his

days volunteering at

Orana Wildlife Park and

teaching kids Latin and

sailing. He speaks to

Andrew King

The first thing I heard about

you was you attended university

at the age of 63. Tell me about

that?

Well, my wife, Pauline Moore,

passed away from bowel cancer

in January 1998. I had put my

sons Nicholas, 47, Timothy, 45,

and Christopher, 42, through

university so I thought why not

do it myself.

Losing your wife must have

been a hard time for you?

It was, but that is part of life

isn’t it? When she found out she

had cancer, she had just been

asked to take over as acting

travel editor at The Press. She had

only been doing that for about 18

months before she passed away.

I was making up coffins at the

funeral parlour I was working

at and I got a phone call from

Pauline asking if I was going to

be long. She wasn’t well and we

later found out that was because

of the bowel cancer. There was

nothing the doctors could do

as it had spread to her liver. I

nursed her at home until just

after Christmas in 1997 before

she went into a hospice. She died

about a week later.

So you have worked in a

funeral home, how was that?

I was looking for something to

do after working for the College

of Education doing their payroll.

I knew Neil Struthers who was

a funeral director for Christian

Funeral Services and a local pastor.

He said his off-sider was off

overseas for three months. I told

HUMOUR: Andrew Moore is a volunteer at Orana Wildlife Park, he drives a visitor shuttle and

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

him I’d help out. I worked there

on and off for seven years.

What was it like as a student

at the age of 63?

I related particularly well,

especially in the classic department,

to the lecturing staff. I

could get away with things the

young ones couldn’t. I could

put puns in essays. But I was accepted

by the others as one of the

bunch. I also did some mentoring

for elder students coming in.

Did you get down to the student

bar?

No, I must admit I don’t drink

often. Very rarely in fact.

So what university did you go

to and what did you study?

I went to Canterbury University.

I did a degree in classics

majoring in Latin and another

in music at the same time. When

I finished up, my lecturers told

me I have to do honours. So did

it, honours in both degrees. But

it didn’t stop there. After I got

honours, the music department

wanted me to do masters. But

you can only do a masters in

composition or performance.

But my major was in history. So

I wrote my thesis on how the

earthquakes affected classical

music in Christchurch and the

surrounding area. So I have an

MMu and BAh.

So you have had an interest

in those subjects from an early

age?

I had studied Latin and French

at when I was a young one at

Cathedral Grammar before going

to Christchurch Boys’ High.

I also had a music background.

I had sung in choirs and still

do to this day for the Catholic

Cathedral.

Fantastic. I have heard you

volunteer quite a bit of your

time including at Orana

Wildlife Park, tell me about

that?

I am one of the shuttle drivers

and have been for the past 24

years. I have volunteered about

6500 hours there. I also take

walking tours on occasion. You

go around with a group of people

and link in with feeding times

and talk about the animals and

answer questions. With the shuttles,

you give a commentary on

the way around.

You must know a bit about

the animals in the park?

You very quickly pick it up

(laughing). When you are driving

the shuttle I try put a bit of

humour in it then they remember

the information easier. I have

a notorious sense of humour for

puns. One of my favourites is

when people ask if they can fish

in the water we use to keep animals

in, as there are some very

big fish in there. I tell them you

can bring your rod in at 5pm any

night you like, but if you do, be

aware at 5.15pm we let the lions

out and they are in charge of the

park until morning. That gets a

laugh.

Has there been an animal

there as long as you have been

volunteering?

I think Gregory Peck the

ostrich has been there all that

time.

Gregory Peck? ​

What else would you call a

male ostrich? (laughing).

I’ve also been told you are

keen on sailing, whats the background

there?

I used to be the watch instructor

on board the Spirit of

Adventure and went on 11 of

the 10-day voyages around New

Zealand. I gave that up about

2004 as I was considered a little

bit old. I could still handle the

deck work, but there is a lot of

other activity that goes on that I

would be struggling to do now.

I am still involved as the port

contact here.

You teach sailing now, don’t

you?

I got involved with the

Canterbury Sailing Trust which

brings the old ketch Fox II,

which is based in Akaroa, but

comes to Lyttelton from October

to December and takes school

groups, scout groups, all types

of organisations like that out on

the water. I have been doing that

every year for about 13 years

now. It is about passing on the

knowledge.

sign of kicking back

Have you always had an interest

in sailing?

I wanted to go to sea when I left

school. As a navigating officer apprentice

for a merchant shipping

company, but I wore glasses so I

was rejected on eyesight grounds.

They told me we don’t have navigating

officers in New Zealand

wearing glasses and asked me to

please close the door when I left.

That was a short interview

then. What did you do after that?

I went to work for the engineering

branch of the post office,

which later became Telecom. I

was on the administration side

for 31 years. Then I worked for

the funeral parlour and went to

university.

We have come full circle. I hear

you also teach kids Latin and are

a reader-writer for students who

struggle during exam time?

Yes, I teach Latin at Kirkwood

Intermediate once a week. That

came about after meeting the

deputy principal one day while

out sailing with some of his students.

We got to talking about the

subject and he asked if I would

try it out. I have been doing it for

the last five years. It is the only

school, apart from Christchurch

Girls’ High which teaches it. I

also help students at Middleton

Grange School with reading and

writing in exams.

That must be rewarding?

It is a sense of being able to

contribute and being able to help

children with the difficulties they

are having. I am on my own now

and all these things give a purpose

in life. I must add the Latin

teaching keeps the brain alive

(laughing).

You also have been credited

with getting some music instruments

and other music pieces

out of quake-stricken buildings.

Can you tell me about that?

Well, there were a few collections

around that needed to be

saved. But in most cases, the

buildings were shut off to the

public. I will just say the music

developed legs and escaped. Don’t

HONOUR: Andrew Moore at the Kiwibank Local Hero Award

ceremony.

ask me how (laughing). In my

university thesis, I wrote that the

music seemed to escape, but you

can’t ask me how.

Is there anything you don’t do?

My garden is not as well maintained

as it should be (laughing).

Tell me about your parents.

What did they do?

My mother Molly was a piano

teacher and my father, Harold,

took over the family blacksmith

business from an early age as his

father passed away. But he was a

cricket umpire who also worked

on the railroad.

Did he ever umpire at the top

level?

Well, I think it was either in

1963/64 he was asked to umpire a

match between England and New

Zealand in Christchurch. He had

done a lot of first-class games up

until them. But an accident at the

railroad workshop saw him end

up in the hospital a week before

the test. So he missed out. He got

tangled around a drill after a coworker

played a bit of a prank on

him. We thought he was going to

lose his arm.

That is very unlucky. So I take

it you like cricket?

I don’t enjoy the hit and giggle

style [T20] but don’t mind the

proper game (laughing).

Now you were recently the

recipient of a local hero award,

how did that feel?

For me, somewhat embarrassing.

An honour, yes, a definite

honour. I don’t do what I do for

the rewards. It is that sense of

being able to give something to

the community. My satisfaction,

especially with the teaching and

sailing, comes from the smiling

faces at the end. That, to me, is

my reward. Not only kids but

adults too.

Looking ahead, will you slow

down?

I am going to have to I suppose.

I want to keep doing most

of what I am doing for as long as

I can do it. As long as I am able

and as long as they want me to I

will keep going. My philosophy is

I am quite happy to do what I can

for others.

in a week to help families with

their back-to-school costs.

Jason and Liz Harber donated

more than 60 school stationery

packs to the Compassion Trust,

with help from the community

and work colleagues.

The couple received a “hugely

overwhelming” response after

posting on a New Brighton

community Facebook page asking

where they could drop off 16

primary school stationary packs

they had made up with items

bought from The Warehouse.

There was so many positive

responses, it was unbelievable,”

said Mrs Harber.

Following this, she told her

work colleagues at the Christchurch

Casino administration

office about the idea and, by the

end of the day, she had raised

more than $850.

Another 28 primary school

packs were created and donated

as well as 22 year 9 packs, including

scientific calculators.

The Compassion Trust

helps more than 250 families

in east Christchurch with free

services, such as financial

Jason and Liz Harber

mentoring, ‘street kitchens’,

emergency aid and house repair

services.

Trust manager Anne Addei

said the donations, as well as

the online responses, had been

“mind-blowing and amazing.”

“This time of year is our craziest

time. It’s when people get

the most stressed. To tell you

the truth, most of our clients

don’t ever have spare money

so to be able to plan ahead for

these costs, it is just too hard,”

she said.

Mrs Harber wants people to

understand how easy it is to

make a difference. “You don’t

really need a big plan in place,

you literally just have to go out

and buy things and give them

away, Mrs Harber said.

Gardening

Don’t let the heat impact your plants

ALTHOUGH WE delight in the

summer heat and sunshine, February

can be a challenging month

for your garden.

The extreme weather, such as

high temperatures, strong winds

and minimal rainfall can have a

big impact.

However, it’s an important

time for harvesting in the home

orchard and vegetable garden so

there is plenty to do.

Keep harvesting those delicious

summer vegetables such

as tomatoes, sweet corn, beans,

lettuce, capsicum, aubergines and

cucumbers. Water plants regularly

to ensure even ripening, and

mulch with compost.

Snip off dead or dying growth

and remove any plants that are

diseased; especially those with

blight, which, unfortunately, cannot

be treated once it takes hold,

and will quickly kill crops like

tomatoes. Remove any vegetable

plants that have cropped and

finished for the season to provide

room for winter vegetables that

can be planted towards the end

of the month, such as broccoli,

brussels sprouts, cabbages and

cauliflower, which will mature in

early winter.

Although it can be a tedious

task, keep dead-heading summer

flowering annuals in posts or

the garden to encourage the last

blooms of the season.

It’s also time to plan for autumn/winter

flowering displays.

Begin sowing seeds of winter

annuals like alyssum, calendulas,

primulas, nemesias, pansies, polyanthus,

stock, violas and wallflowers.

These “potted colour”

varieties will brighten up containers

or parts of the garden that

need a bit of colour during winter.

Late season peaches and plums

are now maturing. After crops

are finished, future-proof with a

light summer prune and thin out

old growth. Reduce the height

of trees to allow for easy picking

next season. Make sure all fruit

trees are well mulched to help

retain soil moisture levels and

reduce weed growth. They can be

fertilised from mid-February as

rain begins to arrive.

Mid to late summer is a tough

time for roses. However, if well

cared for, they will continue

blooming well into autumn,

especially the hardy ‘iceberg’ variety.

Dead head plants regularly,

ensure they have plenty of water

PLANNING AHEAD: Late February is the beginning of the

bulb planting season, get them in now for spring colour. Also

remove any vegetable plants that have cropped and finished

for the season.

and apply mulch.

As temperatures begin to

reduce, begin applying fertiliser at

four to six weekly intervals.

Lawns tend to suffer this

month. They often appear very

dry with brown patches and the

ground can have quite alarming

cracks in places.

Where water is readily available

(and not too expensive), irrigate

regularly in the cooler parts of the

day. Although tempting to start

now, keep any major renovation

or repair work until autumn.

Late February is the beginning

of the bulb planting season so

start thinking about varieties you

would like to grow.

These include anemones, crocus,

daffodils, freesias, hyacinth,

iris, jonquil, Ixia, lachenalias,

muscari, nerines, ranunculus,

tulips and watsonias.

Prepare the soil thoroughly

before planting by adding in

compost to the existing soil.

Bulbs thrive in an open, sunny

position where the soil is friable

and well-drained. Plant them in

clumps to provide an attractive

display.

Top tips for growing flowers in containers

ARE YOU interested in pot

plants?

A bit of quick colour can

do wonders, so fill bowls with

flowering plants like petunias,

geraniums or lobellias.

Container plants are popular

but when it comes to potting

mix, confusion reigns. Is potting

mix really necessary? Won’t soil

do the same job?

Here are some answers to these

common questions:

Why should I use a quality

potting mix?

A quality potting mix provides

the best growing medium for

container plants.

Quality potting mixes, unlike

soil, maintain a proper balance

between holding moisture and

draining well.

This means that plant roots can

have access to sufficient water

without the risk of drowning or

dying from lack of oxygen.

Potting mixes can be

specifically formulated for special

purposes and situations. This

means you can provide plants

with the most suitable conditions

for healthy growth.

Tips for re-potting

Start by watering thoroughly.

Invert the pot and carefully remove

the plant. Don’t pull it by

the stem. Sometimes it helps to

roll the pot on its side and squeeze

gently to loosen the roots.

In extreme cases it may be

necessary to break the old pot

or cut it away from the root ball.

Remove some of the old potting

mix and check the roots for damage

or disease. Trim these back to

a healthy section.

Re-pot into (preferably) a

slightly larger pot. Firm into

place but don’t press too hard or

you’ll risk damaging the roots.

Leave at least 2cm of space at

the top of the mix for watering.

Water thoroughly.

This settles the mix into place

and removes air pockets. A few

weeks later, feed with a fertiliser

that suits container plants.

Is potting mix dangerous?

Like soil and organic matter,

potting mixes may carry any one

of a range of beneficial or harmful

bacteria.

Keep potting mix moist, avoid

breathing dust from potting mix,

wear gloves and, most importantly,

wash your hands with

soap and water when you’ve

finished potting, or working with

soil or organic matter.

Water wise

When watering potted

plants, always check that the

water can drain freely from the

pot.

Don’t leave water sitting in a

saucer.

BALANCE: Fill your pots with

good quality potting mix.

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY

Māori Trades Training

NEW FRIEND: Sofia Hansrod, Hoon Hay.

Just months after graduating from

Māori Trades Training at Ara Institute

of Canterbury, Christchurch’s Reid

Middleplaats has earned himself tools, a

car and a career.

He was working as a labourer when he

saw an ad for the fee-free programme.

“Labouring wasn’t exactly what I saw

myself doing in the future,” he said. “I’ve

always thought about building as a career.

I heard Ara was offering classes and, yeah,

I was keen.”

Returning to study was challenging, but

Reid quickly found his groove. “Everybody

was just really friendly and easy to get along

with. I was a bit nervous before I started,

but as soon as I got there I was waiting in

the foyer, I saw this fella and started talking

to him, and he ended up being in my class.”

The tutors helped students to find their

best learning style, Reid said. “We got to

build a house from the start; we built the

frames in the barn and moved them to

the Tradefit area.

I also did work

experience, so it was

three days at Ara

and two days on the

tools. It was really

cool. I started with

simple tasks at AJ

Construction, but

what I learnt from

Ara was what the go

was there, ‘cos you

still had to measure

and do simple

equations.”

After only a few weeks placement,

Reid was offered an apprenticeship at AJ

Construction. “I was straight out on a new

light commercial build in Wigram, just

working away. I saved some money, got

myself some tools and at the end of the year

I got a vehicle, so I’m pretty much sorted.”

Reid’s is hoping to buy some land and

build his own house one day. For now,

“I want to keep building, I have always

wanted to, and I’m really grateful for the

opportunity.”

“Give it a go and you could end up

making a career out of it,” is his advice to

others.

Cultural components of the programme

include learning a haka. The He Toki

partnership, which oversees Māori Trades

Training was created to train more Māori

for leadership in construction and is iwiled.

Māori Trades Training is open entry to

anyone of Māori descent.

with its dazzling parade of

diamond-encrusted watchmaker

shops. A star specimen is Bucherer,

one of the real old-timers, who

stock the world’s biggest selection

of Rolexes.

I gazed incredulously at a limited

edition platinum Rolex, glinting

at me through the window,

with a price-tag of NZ$60,000.

Gulp.

Further up the time-honoured

street, I swooned over the wondrous,

over-the-top timepieces at

the funky boutique watchmaker,

Marconi. Willy Wonka would

approve.

Draping the immaculate Jardin

Anglais on the lakefront, Geneva’s

enormous flower clock is an essential

selfie stop – and true to

Swiss form, it never misses a beat.

This very compact low-rise city

can be easily conquered in a day

or two, packed with quirk and

medieval character, slung around

a stunning lake, with the alps

floating on the horizon. The old

town is engrossing and evocative,

spilling stories from the days of

the reformation.

Geneva is also residence to

some global heavyweights, like

the Red Cross and the United Nations’

European headquarters.

I sauntered through both

complexes, swooning over the

enormity of the UN’s Assembly

Hall. Make a date with the fountain

– Jet d’Eau, Geneva’s gushing

icon, where a gob-smacking

seven tonnes of water is airborne

at any one time.

To fully appreciate its immensity,

walk along the breakwater

from the lakeside and stand

under this monstrous shaft of

spritzing water. It looks particularly

impressive come nightfall,

when it’s radiantly illuminated.

Aside from its lavish aesthetic

value, the fountain began life in

the 19th-century, as a safety valve

for Geneva’s hydraulic power network.

Most hotels will give you a

free transport pass which includes

the chic little yellow taxi-boats,

called mouettes.

And then there’s the retro paddle-steamers,

gliding the waters

as gracefully as swans, that will

take you deep out into the lake, as

Mont Blanc looms ever larger.

Lake Geneva is actually Western

Europe’s largest lake, so if you

have the time, there’s a spoil of

neighbouring villages and sights

to discover. There’s no avoiding

the lure of Geneva’s insatiable

chocolate shops.

One of my all-time Swiss

favourites is Laderach which sells

its chocolate in a headswirl of flavours,

in ridiculously big sheets,

the size of A3 paper.

Don’t miss the Musée d’Art et

d’Histoire is rainy-day-perfect,

showcasing some exceptional

works by Monet, Renoir, Van

Gogh, Cézanne and Picasso. I got

dreamily lost in the Genevoise

landscapes of the Swiss painters

François Diday and Alexandre

Calame.

And if you have time? Head

to the Patek Philippe Museum,

whisking you through the history

of measuring time.

A great go-to for fondue, Switzerland’s

cheesy national pastime,

is Café du Soleil. What makes

their bubbling cheesy cauldrons

TASTE SENSATION: Try Café du Soleil for a creamy, cheesy

fondue.

so good is they only use hand-selected

gruyere, giving the fondue

a creamy consistency.

Restaurant les Armures is

another prized fondue institution.

This wood-beamed restaurant

with muskets on the wall crowns

the Old Town. Bill and Hillary

Clinton gorged themselves here

in 1994.

Overlooking the lakesidehugging

Jardin Anglais, Hotel

Metropole is a grand old building,

circa 1854, but its proud heritage

boldly mingles with ultra-contemporary

comforts.

I stayed in a freshly redesigned

junior lakeside suite, resplendent,

stylish and restful, with

some spectacular state-of-the-art

touches, like the giant mirror TV.

I want one.

My bed was like sleeping

on a cloud, I had an in-room

Nespresso machine and my

Spa-style bathroom was the

personification of re-energising

indulgence, with a steam shower

and bathtub.

Beyond the supreme breakfast

experience, a feast of dining

options can be enjoyed, whether

you’re staying in-house or not.

Head to the Mirror Bar for

all day dining and cocktails, the

glamorous rooftop experience at

5 Lounge Bar and inventive Italian

cuisine with a French twist at

Gusto.

I enjoyed Gusto’s Sunday buffet

lunch, which is a smash-hit,

swooned over by visitors and

locals in equal measure.

Driven

Supercar performance

from V8-powered Lexus

• By Ross Kiddie

I’VE MADE no secret

over the years of my

affection for Lexus

product.

There’s something about

the fit and feel when you

are sitting behind the

wheel, the quality of manufacture,

the intuitive way

the controls are laid out

and, of course, there’s that

luxury/sport blend that is

hard to combine in manufacture

and get right.

Lexus has taken a big

step with the manufacture

of its LC500 series sport

coupe. It’s a car which

swings the bias away

from luxury squarely into

the performance car category,

and I label it a bit

of soft supercar. Its price

of $215,000 is less than

you’d pay for an equivalent

Ferrari or Lamborghini,

but the LC500 has supercar

looks and has performance

not that far distant.

The LC500 lands here in

two forms, there’s a 5-litre

V8 model which is the

subject of this evaluation,

and if you feel that you’d

like to give back to the

environment a little there’s

a V6 hybrid model. Both

list at the same price and

you can have the option

of a carbon fibre roof on

either variant for an extra

$5000.

When Lexus New

Zealand launched the

LC500 it included a media

experience at Highlands

Motorsport Park, near

Cromwell. I can report

from that event that both

models live up to that

sports car dynamism –

even the hybrid, it is a

high performance contender

without question.

That event was truly

memorable, and served to

prove that the LC500 is a

sports car with handling

and power without compromise,

and it all comes

with a sound that as a

sports car buyer you’d be

satisfied with, it isn’t overwhelming

but it is strong

out of the exhausts.

In true sports car fashion

the LC500 drives

through the rear wheels,

and from the best information

I have it has a near

perfect 52:48 front/rear

weight balance, and that’s

hard to engineer into a big

car.

The engine drives

through a 10-speed direct

shift automatic, and by

the sheer nature of its

power outputs (351kW

LEXUS LC500: V8 engine or V6 hybrid.

and 540Nm), there’s an

unfaltering surge of power

through the power band,

the red-line sits around

7000rpm and the engine

will happily wail to that

point with a thunder and

fury that only a V8 can

produce.

It’s timely to point out

that the engine is naturally

aspirated, there’s no turbocharger,

it produces those

fabulous outputs solely on

mechanical ability and the

ability to rev freely.

• Price – Lexus LC500,

$215,000

• Dimensions –

Length, 4720mm;

width, 1920mm;

height, 1345mm

• Configuration – V8,

rear-wheel-drive,

4969cc, 351kW,

540Nm, 10-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 4.7sec

• Fuel usage –

12.2l/100km

Of course, you don’t

need to drive the LC in

sports car mode all the

time, it’s a city-friendly

drive and adapts to all situations

with aplomb and

dignity, and that’s what I

mean about the Lexus way

of manufacture, it’s more

than just a high-speed

sports car, its driveability

at all speeds is uncanny.

The LC500 is delightfull

in all aspects, its road

manners aren’t disturbed

by uneven surfaces, the

suspension is simply magic

with a comfortable ride

and the dynamics needed

to harness that wealth of

power.

Huge Michelin tyres

(21in) put the power down

well, and the traction control

network isn’t overly

invasive and doesn’t stifle

the driver’s request when

power out of a corner is

asked early.

While the LC500 is

simply magical in all

performance aspects, the

criteria I rely on most

when judging how good

a car is through the feel

in the steering in relation

to the request for power.

The LC500 steers likes

it’s on velvet, steering

input translates to minute

changes in direction and

there’s perfect loading at

the wheel, the body stays

rigid and flat over the suspension,

most of its wonderful

handling manners

relate to that perfect balance

I mentioned earlier,

for a weighty car (1941kg)

stability is phenomenal.

In terms of figures,

the LC500 will lunge to

100km/h in around 5sec

and will complete an

80km/h to 120km/h overtaking

time of 3.8sec.

Those familiar with the

Lexus brand, will relate to

the high specification features

built into the brand

and the LC500 incorporates

all of the kit you’d

expect from a car of this

price. As I eluded to in my

introduction, the cabin

proper is luxurious and

impeccably laid out for

comfort and convenience.

It’s a bit unrealistic to

call the LC500 a four-seater

given the tight nature of

the rear seating area, but

you could get away with

calling it a 2+2 for short

distances.

Lexus, as a company and

through the dealership

network, agree the LC500

in either form won’t be a

huge seller, but it is a clear

intention by the company

to prove that they don’t

just sell luxury cars, the

LC500 has definite purpose.

Those who do buy one

had better get used to

being in the limelight. In

the 30-plus years I’ve been

driving new cars I’ve never

had one that’s captured

quite as much attention as

the LC500 did, and that

doesn’t surprise me, it is

an absolute stunner in all

aspects.

CITY 2 SURF TRAINING PROGRAMME

WEEK 5: Look up and accept the challenge

The training programme will stay the same this week as last week

but may I suggest that you go and explore the geographical options

you have for your training. This means not only exploring your

own neighbourhood but also venturing to places like the Burwood

Plantation, the beach or the Port Hills. Of course it takes a bit more

time as you need transport so the weekend might be the best time

to do this. The best surface to run on is soft, like grass, sand or gravel;

it is easier on the legs so try and do the majority of your sessions on

these types of surfaces if possible. If you have time, venture into the

Port Hills. A good place to start is the track which runs between the

sign of the Takeha and the sign of the Kiwi. This is a gradual incline

which you can do out and back for as far as you can comfortably

go. Once you have mastered this track you can venture beyond

anywhere in the port hills. Jogging on the Port Hills walking tracks

takes a bit of concentration as the terrain underfoot can be uneven.

Walking or jogging and running uphill will automatically increase the

intensity a fraction because you use larger muscle groups. It is a type

of endurance training which will accelerate your strength and fitness

with incredible views of our beautiful city as an extra bonus. Going up,

take small steps and take your time so you stay mainly in zone 1 and

2. Remember that zone 1 is perceived as an easy effort which you can

maintain for very long periods of time. In zone 2 you will get slightly

puffed but you can still have a conversation. Initially take it easy on

the downhill. It can be hard on the legs, so go careful. At this time of

the year the beach is also an attractive option for a workout. The soft

sand will add an extra dimension and help the strength development.

On hot days go for the forest or parks as the shade provided by the

trees will protect you from the blazing sun. Hagley Park is of course

the jewel in the crown as far as parks go with lots of variety and

enough options never to have to do the same route.

TIP OF THE WEEK

Comfort during your training session will greatly

add to your enjoyment. Small issues like shoes which

do not quite fit, wrongly sized, insufficient or too

much clothing can all have big consequences like

blisters, cold exposure, heatstroke or chaffing issues.

In a previous article I have already mentioned the

importance of well-fitting shoes but the same applies

to your running shorts and top. For women there

are special sports bra’s to add to comfort and males

can prevent the much maligned “nipple rash” with

preventative taping over the affected areas.

Later this month a composite open grade team

from High School Old Boys Rugby Club will depart

to compete in the 10th edition of the Patagonia

Cup in Argentina. A side made up of 24 players

from Division 1, Division 2 and Colts premier

teams will compete for the Patagonia Cup.

Old Boys have a proud tradition in this

tournament having won the inaugural trophy

(known then as the Hugo Porta Trophy) in 1999.

OLD BOYS RUGBY

ARGENTINA TRIP, FEBRUARY 2018

Patagonia Cup win the goal for touring team!

Old Boys have been hooked by this experience

and have made the Biannual trip ever since.

The club has a proud record having won the

tournament twice and been runners up on 4 other

occasions.

Arguably this will be one of the toughest

tournaments to date with the conditions being

extremely warm coupled with a huge travel

component.

This year there are 4 local teams competing

along with Old Boys and a team making their

first appearance from New York. The Village

Lions team from New York is being coached by

a former Canterbury Referee, Andrew Britt, who

toured with the Old Boys Club under the CRFU

exchange programme in 2010 so the tournament

will not be unfamiliar to him.

Andy MacDonald, the coach, says that we have

a good balanced squad with a high level of skills

and passion. We are determined to play well

and our goal is to secure the title.

The team have been training hard since late

last year and have been well prepared for this

arduous tour. The tour will commence with

a warm up fixture in Viedma ahead of the

tournament commencing a few days later in

Bahia Blanca. This is our first time to Viedma so

this will be exciting for the tour group.

The players will need all their preparations as

they will be playing two games (25 minutes each

way) each day of competition being Tuesday,

Thursday and Saturday.

The tour lasting 15 days would not be possible

without the generous support of those sponsors

that have committed financially to enable this tour

to go ahead.

Another Stroud steps up

• By Gordon Findlater

GEORGIA Stroud is continuing

her family’s sporting legacy by

performing at a high level on

three different fronts.

Stroud, 17, is the only

Christchurch netballer to

be named in the 23-strong

New Zealand secondary

school squad for 2018. She

was selected following a

national development camp in

Cambridge with 60 of the top

secondary school netballers.

“I didn’t really know if I was

strong enough to make it, but

I’m just so stoked,” said Stroud.

Sporting talent runs deep

in her family. Stroud’s mother

Helen Mahon-Stroud played

rugby for the Black Ferns, as

well as provincial level netball,

athletics, and surf lifesaving.

She was also coach of

the Mainland Tactix from

2008-2011, and held a highperformance

role with New

Zealand Cricket. Helen also

coaches Stroud’s netball team at

Villa Maria College.

Her father Alan Stroud is a

former All White goalkeeper.

He played three games for New

Zealand during the 80s and 90s

and won numerous Chatham

Cup titles with Christchurch

United.

The year 13 student also has

a strong background in middle

distance running, regularly

competing in the 400,

800 and 1500m during

the summer.

Stroud was part of

Villa Maria’s 4 x 400m

team which won the

national secondary

school title in 2016 and

silver last year. In April,

the 4 x 400m team also

broke a South Island record

when they ran 4min 0.14sec.

Loan car reignites Ransley’s championship bid

JADEN RANSLEY’S Toyota 86

championship campaign has

received a lifeline less than

two weeks after a nasty

high-speed crash wrote off

his car.

A couple of days after his

16th birthday, and with the

championship battle firmly in

his sights, Ransley and another

driver tangled at Teretonga Park,

Invercargill, on January 21.

The end result was a wild ride

across the grass into a tyre wall,

with the impact taking a heavy

toll on Ransley and his vehicle.

“I don’t really remember the

hit. In fact I only really saw what

happened on the TV coverage,”

said Ransley.

It was a crushing blow for

the Prebbleton driver. He was

end there. Stroud is a national

surf lifesaving champion.

She won both gold and

silver for Taylors Mistake in

the 2km beach run at the New

Zealand Surf Life Saving

Championships last year.

She took out the under-19

race before going on to

finish second in the open

women’s event.

“I’ve always been told

growing up, you’ve got to

do as much as you can,”

said Stroud.

“When I leave school, it will

be time to make a decision on

which direction I go. But at the

good to keep things varied, it

makes it more exciting.”

Her athletic abilities on the

track and beach appear to be

paying a dividend on the netball

court. Stroud believes her

middle distance running has

helped shape her key attribute.

“Fitness is my point of

difference. I’ve been working on

my strength over the summer. I

went to the development camp

last year but I was so much

smaller and less confident.”

This year Stroud will also

experience netball at a highperformance

club level.

She has been named in

an extended squad for the

Mainland Beko League netball

team.

Outside of school, training,

and patrolling the beach, Stroud

also manages to find time to

work part-time at her dad’s pub

– O’Sheas Public House – with

her younger sister Lucy.

“You’ve got to get fuel money

somehow, but it’s lots of fun.

Dad loves it when we’re there,

hanging out with his mates, it’s

so cool, it’s almost not work.”

secondary school team will be

“I felt terrible – sick, sore. It

was a low point.”

However, as he

left the circuit that

afternoon, Ransley’s

thoughts had already

turned toward

the possibility of

getting back into

the championship

battle. With a two-week break, it

seemed possible but difficult.

“We were looking at a variety

of ways to get back in the game

and there was a constant stream

of good wishes and offers of help

from the racing community. It

was really amazing.”

The game-changer for the

young driver was a phone call

stars

SIX NOMINEES at the country’s

top rugby league awards

tomorrow night in Auckland

have links to Canterbury.

The New Zealand Rugby

League Award nominees include

promising youngsters Seth

Tauamiti, 18s player of the year,

and Caius Fa’atili, 16s player of

the year.

Tauamiti, now living in Auckland

after signing with the Warriors,

had a standout year in the

13-man code making the New

Zealand Schoolboys side to take

on the Australian Schoolboys

last year as well as playing for the

Canterbury Bulls and St Thomas’

college in both rugby and league.

Hornby Panthers’ volunteers

Willy Simon and Jack Newson

have both been nominated for

the male volunteer of the year

award. Meanwhile, Jasmine Tuli

is a finalist for female volunteer of

the year.

Mrs Tuli is the widow of Teni

Tuli, who died of a heart attack

on the training field on June

2, 2015, just before his 300th

premier game which he told his

teammates would be his last.

The staunch Linwood Keas

supporter oversaw the junior

committee and under-18 squad,

managed and trained the under-

16s, helped create the premier

women’s side, represented

Linwood at Canterbury Rugby

League meetings and took the

Linwood under-14s to an undefeated

finish in a Southern Zone

tournament last year.

Wilson is a finalist for referee of

the year.

“Geoff and Toyota

really worked hard to

help me get back into the

championship,

I owe them a huge

thanks for that,” he said.

In spite of the crash,

Ransley is still fifth

on the championship

ladder with six races to go. The

next round of the championship

takes places at the weekend at

Manfeild, Feilding.

The Toyota 86 championship

is currently led by fellow

Prebbleton racer Jack Milligan.

Manfeild will also host the final

round of the Toyota Racing Series

which is led by Christchurch

driver Marcus Armstrong.

Paving the way!

Tiles or pavers are easy to install

and maintain, and with a wide

range of materials on offer, from

natural stone to porcelain, there

are a few factors to consider

before making your final choice.

Natural stone

Choose from granite, marble, slate,

limestone or travertine for a luxurious

finish to your outdoor entertaining

and living spaces. Available in both

rectangular and square-shaped tiles,

these come in a range of sizes, colours

and finishes.

Of all the natural stones, granite

is the hardest wearing and the least

porous, so it is resistant to stains and

spills.

Slate is softer than granite and

marble, and is therefore more suitable

for walls than floors. Available in

strong colour variations – from green

to grey, right through to orange, brown

and tan – its beautiful textures are

ideal for adding interest and contrast

with other materials. Limestone is

another beautiful natural stone but as

it’s highly porous, it must be sealed for

stain protection. Not only available in

white, limestone also comes in brown

and in tumbled and polished finishes.

Travertine is similar to limestone in

that it’s very porous with visible pitting

in the stone, so it also must be sealed.

Brick

Durable and hardy, brick pavers give a

more traditional feel to outdoor areas.

Available in a range of hues, from the

standard red to muted shades of green,

rust, brown tan and beige, they also

come in various sizes and finishes that

look like both new and aged bricks.

Brick pavers are easy to maintain

and easily cleaned with soapy water.

Although they dry quickly in the

sun, they can form a slick, mossy film

in shady spots where the moisture

lingers.

Concrete

With over 30 pre-mixed colours and a

dozen different stains available, there

is a wide range of decorative patterns

that are stamped on and different

textures that do a convincing job of

imitating more expensive materials,

Mix and match textures for

areas.

such as natural stone and slate.

Concrete tiles are strong, durable and

slip-resistant. They easily withstand

freezing temperatures and soak up

the heat during the day which is

then released when the sun goes

down. Just like brick, concrete tiles

are easily cleaned with soapy water,

and although not necessary, they do

benefit from a sealant to protect them

for long-term use.

Porcelain

Porcelain tiles are the go-to tile

for decorative drama. Colours are

practically limitless and patterns are

numerous, so let your imagination

run wild. The great multitasker,

porcelain tiles can be made to

resemble other materials, such as

natural stone, brick, concrete, rock

and even wood. As they are fired at

extremely high temperatures – unlike

ceramics – they are very hard, durable

and non-porous.

Wood

Recreate the look of an outdoor deck

or hardwood floor with wooden patio

tiles. Made from hardwood trees,

they offer maximum strength and

durability. As with all other wood

products, wood tiles for the outdoors

require regular maintenance to retain

their beauty. Wood tiles must be

finished with a decking oil, which

produces a rich colour. Clean wood

tiles with a water blaster and seal with

a wood finish every three years.

Wood tiles should be installed on

a hard concrete or asphalt surface for

optimal durability, and sometimes tiles

need an elevated PVC platform base

to allow for adequate drainage and

ventilation.

recognise the changing nature of retirement

villages with the move towards established

safe and secure communities and the need

for onsite expanded facilities.
