FINAL SALUTE: Fergie McCormick’s iconic No 15 jersey was retired for the day when Linwood played High School Old Boys

at Linfield Park on Saturday.

Fitting tribute to Fergie

• By Gordon Findlater

RUGBY LEGEND Fergie

McCormick was given a fitting

tribute at the home ground of

his old club on Saturday.

A pair of gumboots and a No

15 Linwood jersey were placed

at Linfield Park as Linwood and

their rivals High School Old

Boys held a minute’s silence

before kick-off.

Both teams’ fullbacks then

played the match without the

No 15 on their backs as a salute

to McCormick, who lost his battle

with throat cancer last week.

The match was originally

scheduled to be played at Bob

Deans Field. However, Old Boys

agreed to move the match to

Linfield.

“A lot of players from Fergie’s

era came out of the woodwork.

There was a lot of nostalgia

about it,” said Linwood rugby

development officer Adam Parker.

“We asked Old Boys about

moving the game on Thursday

and they were on-board. It was

exactly what community rugby

continues

over

hospital

park

and ride

• By Bridget Rutherford

FIXING Christchurch Hospital’s

park and ride service has been

laid squarely at the feet of the

Canterbury District Health

Board.

The Ministry of Health told The

Star yesterday the CDHB is responsible

for short-term parking.

It came after CDHB board

member Andrew Dickerson

pointed the finger at the ministry,

saying since it took over responsibility

for parking projects in 2015,

nothing had been done.

The CDHB set up park and ride

“in desperation”, Mr Dickerson

said.

“We did it because of continued

delays in work commencing on

the car parking projects.

“Given problems we’re now

facing are the result of inaction by

the Ministry of Health, I would

like to see them being more forthcoming

with funding, but I also

want to see permanent solutions

too.”

But ministry critical projects

director Michael Hundleby said it

was not the ministry’s problem.

“While Canterbury is undergoing

a major billion dollar hospital

rebuild which will include a

permanent multi-storey car park

planned to be completed in 2020,

Canterbury DHB continues to

be responsible for its short term

parking.” •Turn to page 4

TWO TOUCHING stories

today, and both involving

fullbacks.

On page 1, we report on the

tribute to Fergie McCormick at

Linfield Park on Saturday, home

ground of his old club Linwood.

The Linwood and High

School Old Boys fullbacks in

that match didn’t wear No 15

on their jerseys, and a pair of

gumboots and a Linwood No 15

jumper were set in front of the

two sides as a minute’s silence

was observed.

On page 3, Marist Albion is

remembering one of its famous

sons leading up to Anzac Day

– Jum Turtill, its first All Black

when the club was just Albion.

Turtill switched codes to

league, as many did back then,

and made his way to one of the

British powerhouse clubs – St

Helens.

Turtill was sadly killed during

World War 1. It’s great his

Albion legacy lives on.

And on page 1, more duck

shoving apparently over the

IT’S BEEN 100 years since rugby

player Hurbert ‘Jum’ Turtill was

killed in action in France during

World War 1.

Turtill played for Albion, now

known as Marist Albion, was an

All Black, played for the pioneering

All Golds and later professional

rugby league for British

club St Helens.

Now Marist Albion is remembering

one of its most famous

forgotten sons, club president

Dave Barker said.

“We’ve been aware of the

history, we’re also aware that

Jum died 100 years ago, which

is pretty significant. So we’re

taking a moment to honour that

legacy,” he said as Anzac Day

looms.

The club raised a toast and

held a minute’s silence for Turtill

during a tribute on Saturday

night.

Mr Barker said it wants to

instil the history of the club in

younger players.

Club member Pat Barry is

piecing together a history of

Turtill for the club’s records.

Turtill played fullback for

Canterbury in 1902, and played

his only test for the All Blacks in

1905, beating Australia in Dunedin.

“He’s our first All Black,

that’s important,” Mr Barry said.

“We’ve looked at the history

of the various All Blacks over

the years. It’s good for people

to be aware of who have gone

beforehand.”

In 1907, Turtill switched to

rugby league and played six test

matches, captaining New Zealand

in the first ever test against

Australia the following season.

He eventually settled in the

United Kingdom where he

linked up with St Helens.

When war broke out, he joined

the British Army and was part

of the 422nd Field Company,

Royal Engineers. Turtill fought

in France from 1915, surviving

the battles of Pilckem Ridge and

Menin Road Ridge.

But on April 9, 1918, the

38-year-old was mortally

wounded by shrapnel in French

in the Second World War and

another was a prisoner-of-war,”

Mr Barry said.

Mr Barry said the significance

of Turtill to the country and club

has prompted him to try and

track down Turtill’s

great-grandsons in the United

Kingdom.

“I left a message on an answer

machine, we hope is one of

his grandsons. But we haven’t

heard back yet. We’ve rung to

let him know that Jum’s old club

is honouring him back in New

Makeover for signs

• By Julia Evans

ABOUT 60 directional signs in

the central city are set to get a

makeover.

Both vehicular and cycle directional

signs within the four avenues

will either be updated and replaced

by the city council, manager operations

(transport) Steffan Thomas

said.

The work is expected to cost ratepayers

about $200,000, he said.

“That’s around 60 new or updated

signs,” he said. While work on each

sign will differ, it will cost $3300 per

sign on average.

Mr Thomas said regularly updating

or replacing directional signs is

a “key component” in developing

how people find their way around

the city.

“So that people can find their way

to specific places and navigate the

city,” he said.

In a report to the city council’s

infrastructure, environment and

transport committee, staff said the

updated signs were at the “detailed

design” stage.

Installing the new signage is

expected to occur over the second

and third quarters of the year, Mr

Thomas said.

Brownlee sick of being blamed

• By Julia Evans

GERRY BROWNLEE says

he was always aware botched

earthquake repairs could come

at a huge financial cost to the

Government.

But the former minister of

Canterbury earthquake recovery

said yesterday the issue was

not knowing

when

the problem

would surface

or how

big it would

be.

“We

didn’t know

Gerry Brownlee

how big

that issue

could be,

but that it could arise,” he said.

Mr Brownlee was also minister

in charge of the Earthquake

Commission under the National

Government, which has been

bearing the brunt of criticism

over the issue.

The Government could face a

bill of up to $1 billion to fix the

botched repairs.

EQC has revealed 664 “onsold”

homeowners have gone

come forward with re-repair

issues that have then gone over

the EQC $115,000 cap when

reassessed. More could be

identified. Minister of Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Megan Woods said she is aware

a big bill would be coming, but

shifted blame for the “real mess”

onto Mr Brownlee’s Government.

The first legal case on this

issue was lodged in May of 2016,

and EQC has always known this

was going to be an issue when

repaired homes started to be

sold...Yet when our Government

took over, nothing had been

done,” she said.

Mr Brownlee said the Government

was forced to wait to

see how it would arise.

“You’ve got unique problems

that have occurred here. We

could have said no repairs for

five years until the land’s settled..or

don’t sell your house...

but that would have been unacceptable.”

But he is sick of taking the

blame. “I’m sick of throwing my

hands up in the air, when they

say let’s blame the other guy.”

Dr Woods had ordered the

Treasury to forecast exactly

how much the bill could be. She

and Minister of Justice Andrew

Little are looking to fund test

cases to find out who is liable.

She said this could take

“I’ve also asked for urgent

advice from EQC on the

taxpayer...It’s important we

know what this could cost so we

can plan for it effectively.”

Council won’t

disclose advice

over dog letters

THE CITY council won’t say what

legal advice it received leading

to sending out an incorrect

instruction for all dogs classified as

menacing to be muzzled – even in

their own homes.

City council consenting and

compliance general manager

Leonie Rae said it was “legally

privileged”.

Earlier this month the city

council sent letters to all menacing

dog owners saying their animals

had to wear muzzles when “at

large”, including while they were

in their own homes and properties.

It caused uproar forcing the city

council to seek independent legal

advice. Dogs are classed as menacing

if they are a certain breed, or

have attacked or shown aggressive

behaviour. Ms Rae said initially

the city council sought legal advice

about the definition of “at large”

from its own legal team.

It was then determined that

included homes and properties.

But after uproar, the city council

sought external legal advice from

Buddle Findlay, which found the

instruction would not be upheld in

court. The city council then apologised

and did a u-turn.

Haig’s family drops civil case

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Jono Edwards

A GRUELLING battle has ended

after the family of a man wrongly

imprisoned for 10 years dropped

a compensation bid to avoid

“further heartache.”

Rex Haig, who moved to

Christchurch in his later years,

died peacefully at his home in

November.

Immediately following Mr

Haig’s death, his Dunedin--based

family was unsure

whether they

would continue

with the compensation

case he had

been mounting

in the preceding

Rex Haig

months.

His daughter

Angela Haig-

McAuliffe said the family had

decided to drop the bid.

“To us, as a family, it is not

about the money, but about

knowing in our hearts the story

of his innocence and the story of

those that are guilty in this.

“We found our way through

many difficult times and do not

wish for any further heartache for

our family.’’

The family made the decision so

they did not have to go “through

the pain of being disappointed’’

by the justice system again, she

said.

Mr Haig was convicted in 1995

for the murder of Mark Roderique

and spent 10 years in prison.

Mr Roderique went missing on a

fishing trip near Westland on Mr

Haig’s boat the previous year.

In 1997, Mr Haig and other

inmates were involved in a high

profile incident at Paparua

Prison. They held prison officers

hostage with fake explosives, carried

out because of concerns over

injustice.

Mr Haig fought to have the

murder conviction overturned.

After an initial appeal was turned

down, the Court of Appeal

quashed his conviction in 2006.

His compensation claim the

following year was rejected, but

last year he worked on mounting

a new case.

The Government did “anything

in its power’’ to stop his first

compensation bid, Mrs Haig-

McAuliffe said.

“Apart from the quashing of his

conviction in 2006, the fight has

cost all of us dearly and taken its

toll on everyone involved.

“We and all of his many

supporters know that he was innocent

and that’s all that matters

to us.’’

It was her understanding the

bid could have been continued

after his death, she said.

A cooking school will be established

on the first floor.

Hugo Boss will open a store

in Riverside Lanes alongside

Mr Peebles said they were “really

chuffed” with the calibre of

the confirmed tenants.

“We’ve targeted local companies

that are doing well. We

turned down a lot of the big

franchise operations to go with

the brands and businesses that

have started up.”

He said many had been based

at Re:START previously or had

eateries at Little High, like Bacon

as the “Fergburger of Christchurch”.

Others such as Dimitris and

DAMAGED: The Christchurch Civic Trust is helping with an effort to save

McLean’s Mansion.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Civic trust joins bid to

save McLean’s Mansion

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE Christchurch Civic Trust has got on

board with a massive fundraising effort

to try and restore the historic McLean’s

Mansion.

With 53 rooms, the earthquakedamaged

category two heritage building

on Manchester St is the largest wooden

residential building in the country.

The McLean’s Mansion Charitable Trust

was formed in 2016 to try and buy it, as is

where is, off the Murray family and restore

it. Now the civic trust is getting on board.

Civic trust chairman Chris Kissling said

it would launch a campaign at a public

meeting next Thursday to help raise the

initial $2.5 million needed to buy the

property.

Once that was done, it would then look

to raise the $7.5-$9 million to restore

the building to be used as an art gallery,

among other things, he said.

Prof Kissling said the Murray family

had agreed to give an interest-free loan

of $2.5 million so the McLean’s Mansion

Charitable Trust could take ownership of

the building and land.

The loan would need to be paid off

within three years, he said.

The McLean’s Mansion Charitable Trust

needs to take ownership of the site to be

able to access the $1.9 million central

city landmark heritage grant, which was

approved by the city council in 2016, Prof

Kissling said.

He said that grant could only be used for

the building’s repairs.

Prof Kissling said the McLean’s Mansion

Charitable Trust wanted to be able to access

that money sooner rather than later so

it was not committed elsewhere.

The public meeting is set to be held at the

Oxford Terrace Baptist Church where the

civic trust would launch the campaign.

Prof Kissling and former McLean’s Mansion

Charitable Trust chairman Trevor

Lord would speak.

Said Prof Kissling: “This is the last building

of its type. We’ve lost so many other

heritage buildings post-quake, so we’ve

got to go all out to save it. I’d hate to think

what happens if we fail.”

While the civic trust had helped raise

money for other projects, such as Mona

Vale and Mt Vernon Park, this would be

the largest, he said.

“It’s a big ask, but given its status as the

largest wooden residence in the whole of

New Zealand, and probably Australasia, it

would seem well worth saving.”

The public meeting will be held

at Oxford Terrace Baptist Church,

286 Oxford Tce, next Thursday from

5.30pm-7pm. Anyone is welcome to

attend.

School’s $20m sports facility

• By Julia Evans

THE CENTRAL city will get

a new $20 million sporting

facility.

But not from the Government.

Christ’s College will build a

sporting excellence, health and

well-being centre on school land

in Cranmer Square.

Architectus, which designed

the city’s bus interchange, has

developed a concept design

and business

case for the new

complex at the

old Christchurch

Girls’ High School

site on the corner

of Montreal and

Steve

Kelsen

Armagh Sts.

College director

of finance and

operations Steve Kelsen said the

building was part of the school’s

master plan, which is about

“getting out of the gates” and

into the community.

The facility will include a

multipurpose sports hall, indoor

rowing tank, several classrooms,

strength and conditioning

facilities, as well as sport science

and health professional suites.

“For us, it’s a demonstration

to our commitment to students’

well-being as much as sporting

excellence. There will be physios,

nutritionists and counsellors

there as well,” he said.

The sports centre site is

currently being used as a

car park, but Mr Kelsen said

the college has set a goal

of construction beginning

sometime next year, with the

facility completed by 2020.

“But that’s a conditional goal

. . . the facility starting

construction is dependant on

fundraising,” he said.

The board of governors has

set a fundraising target of $7.5

million, half of the proposed

construction cost. Another $5

million will be spent on the fit

out.

More than $2 million has been

raised so far, he said.

Mr Kelsen said the facility will

be open to community groups

for use, as well as by the college.

“We’re not quite sure at what

capacity it will be open to the

public, but we’ve been talking

with some sports organisations

and clubs to see whether they

might become tenants,” he said.

The college’s master plan also

includes a new science building

and a music and performance

centre.

The new science centre will

be built within the current

college’s Rolleston Ave grounds

on the site of the existing gym

and science block, which will be

demolished.

The arts centre will be built

next to the new sport facility on

Armagh St.

Port strike

settlement

looms

THE RAIL and Maritime

Transport Union has lifted its

strike notices, as it moves closer

to settling with Lyttelton Port

Company.

An “in principle” agreement

was reached yesterday, regarding

terms of a settlement, which

would require formal ratification

by RMTU members at LPC.

Eleven RMTU members had

issued a strike notice for April

26-29, but as a result of the

agreement, all strike notices and

LPC’s lockout notice have been

withdrawn.

They have been locked in a

dispute for months.

LPC says RMTU wants a better

settlement than the other major

union at the port, Maritime Union

of New Zealand.

LPC chief executive Peter

Davie said the lifting of the strike

notices was an “extremely positive

step” as they moved closer to

achieving settlement.

“LPC wants to acknowledge

customers’ ongoing support and

thank them for their patience

during the industrial action.”

From Small Town NZ

To Travel Consultant

When you're from small town New

Zealand you have to make some hard

decisions once you finish high school. It

was a big one for Tempany which

involved moving out of home in

Ashburton and moving to the bigger

city up the road - Christchurch, to

attend Avonmore Tertiary Institute.

Tempany, being a naturally shy and

quiet person was a little worried about

how a new course in a new city was

going to go, but it was easier than she

thought - "turning every corner and

seeing a smile and feeling welcomed"

quickly made her feel more relaxed and

at home. She also puts her success

down to her "amazing tutor" who

helped her to learn so much, not only

about the travel and tourism industry

but also about herself and what she was

capable of.

Her biggest challenge while studying

was opening up to people and making

friends, something that was to be very

important for the customer focused role

she would be aiming for upon

graduation.

While at Avonmore Tempany studied

from Tourism Level 3 through to Travel

Level 4 . Tempany says "The travel and

tourism courses were amazing, they

gave me the knowledge I needed to get

where I am now and the tutors were

amazing, they pushed you to achieve at

the highest standard and they never

gave up on you." She particularly liked

how they took the class outside the

classroom to "see and experience the

travel and tourism industry".

We asked Tempany what advice would

she give to other students looking at

this course? She said "just do it, it’s an

amazing course, amazing tutors and

you learn so much, not just about the

travel industry but you learn a lot about

yourself as well. You get to go on some

pretty cool trips and once you’re in a

course and you feel like giving up

because it’s too hard, don’t give up,

keep trying it, it will be worth it in the

end, and talk to your tutor that’s what

they there for, to help".

After all of Tempany's hard work and

dedication the best news is that she is

Tempany at her new job as a Travel

Consultant with World Travellers.

now working at World Travellers

Ashburton as a Travel Consultant.

How did she do it? It was a really

important part of the programme to get

her CV and cover letter sorted and then it

was suggested to talk to some travel

agents about getting work experience,

and that’s just what she did, "I got work

experience at World Travellers and then

they offered me a job".

Fire rages, homes at risk

Businessman jailed

for not paying tax

A BUSINESSMAN involved

in the Canterbury rebuild has

been sentenced to three years

and four months in jail for

not paying $1.5 million of his

employee’s tax deductions to

Inland Revenue.

Libor Lasek, 47, was sentenced

on 44 charges relating to

five building services companies

in district court yesterday.

He had failed to pass on

the PAYE deducted from his

employees’ pay, along with

KiwiSaver, child support,

superannuation and student

loan payments, over a four-year

period.

Inland Revenue spokesman

Tony Morris said Lasek showed

a degree of contempt for the tax

system, as his offending continued

for nearly three years after

he was initially warned about

the consequences.

Shortly after four of his

companies were placed in

liquidation on application by

Inland Revenue, he carried on

with the same type of offending

while controlling another

company.

“Mr Lasek was given multiple

opportunities to put this situation

right and entered into

several instalment arrangements

to clear the arrears. But

ultimately he never followed

through and clearly decided

that meeting his tax obligations

was not a priority.”

Mr Morris said Lasek was

getting an unfair advantage

over his competitors in the

building industry by not passing

on his employees’ taxes.

“This is money that employers

hold on trust for the Crown,

to be used to fund services that

all New Zealanders benefit

from such as roads, schools

and hospitals. It’s not theirs to

spend on whatever purpose

they decide.”

The five companies involved

in the offending – Libor Interiors

Ltd, Libor Living Ltd,

Libor Ltd, L Group Ltd and

Canterbury Joinery – have all

been placed in liquidation.

They owed in total more than

$2.6 million to Inland Revenue

and other creditors.

The total tax that remained

unpaid across all companies

after late payments and credit

transfers was $1,371,673, and is

unlikely to be recovered.

Plan for quake bridge

• By Sophie Cornish

PART OF a wrecked bridge over

the Avon River will be kept to

remind people of the destructive

power of earthquakes.

The Medway St bridge in Richmond

was removed by the city

council in 2013 after becoming

twisted following the September

2010 earthquake.

Avon-Otakaro Network is

behind the idea. Spokesman Evan

Smith said city council has given

consent for the project, which

will begin in the next few weeks.

It will be located alongside

the new Avon River trail on the

Avonside side of the river, just

north of the bridge’s original

location.

The structure was cut into

three for transporting when

removed.

The project will only be

temporary. It will eventually be

completely restored.

Last year last year part of the

bridge was used in a mini golf

course, as part of a project by Gap

Filler and Serious Fun Partnership,

on the corner of Madras and

Armagh Sts.

Richmond residents said

the use of the bridge was

MUNTED: The Medway St footbridge was twisted in the

project may look like which will see one part of the footbridge

“disrespectful”.

Grants from Regenerate

Christchurch and city council

will drive the new project, which

will see a viewing platform

installed diagonally opposite the

structure and signage displaying

the significance of the bridge.

The site is used as a place of remembrance,

including the ‘River

of Flowers’ memorial event being

held annually on February 22.

Real Hope For Long Term

Back Pain Sufferers

After more than ten years in

New Zealand, Teeter Hang-Ups

have now gained a reputation

for success with long-term

sufferers of Back pain. Inversion

New Zealand was started

by Dave and Nancy Hare,

Dave had suffered over

twenty years of back pain

from Degenerated Discs and

had basically given up and

decided to just live with it. “To

me surgery was never an

option” he said “as long as I

still could walk, there was

hope”.

Dave had tried everything;

every time he was overseas

he would search for anything

that could possibly help.

While on one of these

overseas trips ten years ago,

Dave discovered the Teeter

Hang-Ups. “The first time I

tried it, the pain disappeared

and I was completely pain

free for about 30 minutes,

nothing had done that” he

told me. Dave never believed

it would fix him, “as specialists

had told me it was irreversible,

I now knew I had a place

to go every time I wanted

some serious relief”.

To Dave’s surprise the more

he used the table the longer

the pain stayed away, until

after nearly three months he

was completely pain free, “I

couldn’t believe it’ he told me

“I had spent large amounts of

money on every form of treatment

available and here

was something I had never

heard of sorting it out for

me in a very short period of

time” It was then Dave

decided to introduce Teeter

into New Zealand and Inversion

NZ was born.

Over the years INZ have

helped thousands of people

get some serious relief and

have seen results in not only

backs, but necks, hips,

knees, posture, circulation,

increased height, blood

pressure and lots more.

“We have testimonials from

people with over fifty years

of back problems and even

have them in a number of

schools in New Zealand for

their special needs children”

he told me, “the blood to the

brain helps these kids and

the results are excellent”

What this means for the

aging population is that it

helps maintain the health of

the brain as we all get older.

Dave told me that he

realised that, had he not

tried the Teeter for himself

he would still be suffering, “I

would still be a miserable

grumpy bugger, living with

pain, that is why we do the

shows, people need to try it

for themselves” he told me

“most people actually get

off with the pain either gone

or considerably less” he said

“we let the tables do the

talking”

IT IS PURE LOGIC AS TO HOW

THE TEETER TABLE WORKS

Discs: It uses gravity to apply traction,

the traction gently opens the discs and as

they open up they create suction, this

suction draws fluid from the surrounding

tissue back into the discs, re-hydrating

them. This is the key! Discs do not have

their own blood supply, they rely on transfer

of fluid from the surrounding tissue to

keep them healthy and hydrated and over

the years as discs get thinner with age, they

lose the ability to take on fluid (just like

squeezing a sponge) and they start to

de-hydrate.

De-Hydrated discs are less flexible, they are

harder, more prone to injury, they interfere

with nerve roots creating pain and

ultimately the de-hydration causes degeneration.

The Teeter Inversion table slowly

and gently brings the hydration back into

the discs, plumping them up. This brings

back lost height (most people will regain

around 2 CM of height), it separates the

nerve roots far more effectively and returns

quality of life

Muscles: A lot of pain is muscular, when

muscles are stressed they become tight

which restricts the flow of blood and lymph

through the muscles so toxins build up,

Co2 and Lactic Acid. Traction opens up the

muscles, Rhythmic Traction, is a gentle

rocking motion that stimulates circulation

and encourages blood flow through the

muscles, which clears the lactic acid into

your lymph system where it stimulates

lymph flow and deals with it. Most people

with serious neck issues see a large

improvement after only one treatment.

Frank Harwood (84) of Turangi using his Teeter, Frank has been

Inverting for over eight years and has found it keeps him young

Posture: Poor posture is one of the

major cases of pain and is a major contributor

to the deterioration of the body with

age. A difference in leg length causes most

of the hip and knee issues, as they continue

to place uneven loads on the joints;

similar to the wheels out of alignment on

your car.

Trying to correct posture is extremely

difficult due to muscle memory, as it

constantly pulls the muscles back to where

they were. At a level of 40 degrees or more

on the Teeter, the muscle groups open up

and eventually come back into alignment,

using the table daily, does not allow the

muscle memory to pull them back out of

alignment and slowly the muscles start to

lose their memory and go with the flow,

allowing the body to come back into

correct posture. Then using the table once a

day will ensure it is kept there.

This is pure logic, if a machine is out of

alignment it does not last long, the only

difference between the body and a

machine is that the body is constantly

repairing itself, however if the wear and

tear on the body is greater than the body’s

ability to repair itself, it is a slow decline.

The Teeter slowly brings the body out of its

decline and allows the body to repair itself,

resulting in a far healthier life.

If you are serious about investing in your

health and really sorting your issues out,

come see us at one of our local roadshows,

you have nothing to lose and chances are, a

lot to gain.

Here in New Zealand,

Dr Giresh Kanji, one of the countries most

respected Pain Specialists completed a PhD on

how humans experience pain and then

researched lower back pain, writing "Fix Your

Back" and then spent a few years researching

neck pain, headache and migraine and wrote

"Fix Your Neck Pain, Headache & Migraine",

both books are in most bookstores.

Dr Kanji discovered in the research that the

disc is the most likely source of low back pain

and Inversion showed the best results of all the

trials conducted. Three studies showed a 60%

reduction in pain and one showed a 75%

reduction in surgery for people with disc

prolapse.

Dr Kanji endorses Inversion as the best method

to manage back pain, he has personally been

using the Teeter Inversion tables for his own

low back pain, has Teeter Inversion tables at

both of his clinics in Wellington (The Sports

and Pain Clinic) and has had such success that

he is now conducting the largest study in the

World on Inversion Therapy. In his own words,

"these things are gold and inversion should be

a first line treatment for low back pain”.

Charlotte Ball

Big crash inspires cyclist to get

Charlotte Ball, 15, was

lucky not to be paralysed

in November after a

large cycle race pileup

in Leeston involving

about 40 riders. She

was taken to hospital by

helicopter, which inspired

her help the Maia Health

Foundation to successfully

raise more than $1 million

for a rooftop helipad at

Christchurch Hospital.

She spoke to Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

Why did you decide to take

part in the campaign?

I just wanted to make

something good out of a bad

situation. Try to find something

good I can do out of it.

What are your thoughts on

Christchurch Hospital not

having a rooftop helicopter pad,

in spite being one of the busiest

trauma centres in the country?

I am surprised that they don’t

since it is so busy. I thought they

would have started fundraising

for one much earlier on. I think

that would elevate patient care

if they had a helipad. That time

can be really vital for someone’s

recovery.

How has the campaign ‘13

minutes’ been going?

I think they are just over

halfway. They have raised a lot.

I guess if everyone puts in a bit,

they will get there.

Last year’s crash happened so

quickly but tell me about what

you remember.

I remember going in for the

sprint and everyone started

tumbling in front of me. There

was only a few people in front of

me because I was in a good spot.

I grabbed my brakes really hard

but it was too late. I went into

the back of the person in front

of me. Then I ended up on the

grass lying in the bush. I don’t

recall how. But I remember just

hearing the sound of people in

pain. The sound of bikes hitting

each other. I don’t think I will

ever forget that sound. I was

passing out a bit from the pain

and my friend came over and

my dad. People were coming and

going. I remember a firefighter

holding my head. I don’t really

recall much more between him

and the paramedics coming over.

Next thing I was in the helicopter

flying to the hospital.

Do you remember the trip

in the ambulance from the

helicopter landing in Hagley

Park to Christchurch Hospital?

I know I was really confused.

I remember being wheeled from

the helicopter to the ambulance,

and I just remember looking

at the guy in the ambulance

who was from the helicopter. I

was staring at him. That’s all I

remember. I was in and out of

consciousness. One minute I was

asleep and then I’d wake up and

be like “what is happening.”’ I

figured out what was happening

once I saw mum and dad in the

hospital.

What was the recovery like?

I was in hospital for nine

nights. Recovery was extremely

frustrating. I had just got back

on my bike from recovering

from surgery and I was now set

back more months. I couldn’t do

anything. All I wanted to do is

go out and ride my bike or just

walk around but I just couldn’t. I

had heaps of help, cyclist Hamish

Schreurs lent me a bike. Everyone

was being so nice but it couldn’t

really take away my frustration.

Being in hospital the last few

days was absolutely horrible. I

also didn’t really know what was

wrong with my bike.

They said it was broken but

I didn’t know how bad it was

or anything and they couldn’t

tell me how long my recovery

would be. They said I wouldn’t

be able do anything for three

months, which was real annoying

because we go away at Christmas

to Cromwell and they said I

wouldn’t be able to go on the

boat, on the wakeboard, or

anything. I was annoyed about

that.

When were you able to start

cycling again?

While we were away. At the

start of January, I got on my

cousin’s bike. I was really slow

for about 5km. It was tough but

then I started properly riding. At

the end of January, I was able to

go for a decent ride. I have done

a few races since the crash so I

am riding properly now. I am not

training with my coach yet. I am

waiting a few more weeks.

Was there any risk of

becoming paralysed from the

crash?

The doctor said I was close to

being put in Burwood Hospital

but where it was positioned it

was a stable fracture. They said I

was lucky not to be paralysed and

lucky not to be getting surgery.

I think it depends on how you

break it.

Do you view your life

differently now having gone

through this experience?

I definitely have a lot of respect

for people who are paralysed or

have a disability that affects them

from doing different things. I can

just see how frustrating it must be

for them to go through that.

Have you stayed in touch

with the others injured in the

Leeston crash last year?

A few of them I go to school

with. I have been out to Leeston

with dad when I couldn’t race

and then I have been out there

since the crash and seen them

all. A few of them did the race

as well. I saw them there. I am

pretty sure everyone is all good

now.

You haven’t been put off

cycling.

Definitely not.

What are your goals as a

cyclist?

I am in my third year in

cycling. I haven’t got too many

expectations. I will see how this

year goes. I think it would be

really cool to represent New

Zealand in a time trial event

because I enjoy doing the time

trials.

Ange brought her favourite

orange lights to us.

hospital helipad off the ground

I enjoy how it is really social and

being able to see improvements and

your training paying off.

Are you mainly a road cyclist?

I don’t do mountain biking. I pretty

much just do road cycling. I got

taken out of track season this year

because of my back and last year

I got taken out because of my hip

because I crashed on the track last

season.

That was last season at the Denton

Park Velodrome and I landed on my

hip. They thought I had broken my

pelvis.

Do you have a favourite place to

cycle?

Probably my favourite ride is the

Forrest Graperide in Blenheim.

It is very scenic and all the people

are really nice. It is just a really fun

bike ride.

What has it been like seeing

yourself on billboards as one of the

faces of the ‘13 minute’ campaign?

It is a bit embarrassing because

my bus goes past it and the kids

recognise me. But I mean it is a once

in a lifetime thing.

What have your friends and

family said about you taking part

in the campaign?

They think it is pretty cool. They

have supported me through it, seeing

all the good and bad times.

What are you planning to do

when you leave school?

I want to see where I go with

cycling in under-20s and then I will

see if I am good enough to make it

to the Commonwealth Games. For

a job, I want to do something in the

food industry. I’m not too sure yet.

I want to see where under-20s goes.

You can race under-20s for school

nationals.

•Christchurch Hospital is one

of the country’s busiest trauma

centres and the only major

hospital in New Zealand without

a helipad on site. The average

ambulance transfer time to

Christchurch Hospital after the

Fire rages, homes at risk

Call to continue with liquor ban

A TEMPORARY liquor ban

in Linwood Village has been

labelled a success by those in the

area.

Now calls are mounting for it

to be made permanent.

At the end of December, the

city council introduced a sixmonth

liquor ban for area in

response to calls from businesses

and police, it is investigating the

possibility of it being permanent.

Constable

Conal Ross said

he has noticed

a “significant”

decrease in

people drinking

alcohol

in the area –

though he has

only handed

out three warnings since it was

introduced.

“I often talk to the shopkeepers

and they’ve noticed a significant

decrease in problems related to

alcohol . . . they’re more willing

and wanting to come into this

area now,” he said.

Local business owners who did

not want to be named told The

Star they are very happy with

the ban and there is noticeable

improvement in the area.

But Constable Ross said the

ban is only the first step in

addressing a number of social

problems in the area.

“We’ve noticed problems

stemming significantly from

drug and alcohol addictions and

combined with mental health.

It’s certainly not a quick fix but

police have found it’s a good

start.”

Homeless man Marcus also

supports a permanent restriction.

He said since it was introduced

the community has refound its

spirit.

“I’ve been living on the streets

in this area for a very long time

and it was it was a real mess . . .

but since the liquor ban has come

into this area, a lot of people are

coming back.”

“Community spirit starting

to come back into the area, so I

don’t think any council in their

right mind should to take away

the liquor ban in this area,”

Marcus said.

Central Ward city councillor

Deon Swiggs said alcohol was

a catalyst for other anti-social

behaviour, so the ban was a good

in the area.

“From what I’m hearing on

the streets and from what I’m

hearing from the business owners

that the alcohol ban and

people not drinking on the street

is actually had an impact and

making people feel a lot more

comfortable coming to this area,”

Cr Swiggs said.

Te Whare Roimata community

worker Jenny Smith said the

problem has been pushed indoors

and outside the ban area.

“It’s a complex, difficult challenging

issue and there’s no quick

fix solutions . . . it’s not going to

happen overnight,” she said.

But Te Whare Roimata does

not have position on the ban.

Instead it is leading the Linwood

long term solutions to the “complex”

Lyttelton Tunnel

WORK ON the Lyttelton Tunnel

safety upgrade will require up to

15 overnight closures from June

onwards.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency says installation of a $28.7

million fire protection system is

ramping up, with a planned December

completion on the horizon.

Emergency services will have

full access through the tunnel

at all times and community and

tunnel users will be given at least

three weeks notice prior to the full

closures, the NZTA said.

The new deluge fire suppression

system is designed to contain

a fire until emergency services

reach the scene.

A large reservoir is being built

to supply water for the system.

And some earthquake strengthening

of the tunnel portal buildings

will be carried out, along

with communication upgrades.

These include a new public address

system to broadcast safety

instructions in an emergency.

What’s more important: A teacher who plays by the

rules or a teacher who gets the job done?

Laurie Connor (Barry Tomkinson) has been

teaching PE at Hautapu High for as long as

anyone cares to remember. He is the definition

of “old school” and he has no time for political

correctness. If the curriculum gets in the way

of him doing his job, the curriculum loses.

BUT, the kids love him.

The ambitious new principal, Viv Cleaver

(Pip Stevens), has “some issues” with him.

“Cleavage”, as Laurie calls her, has been

brought in to clean house and raise the

prospects of Decile 2 Hautapu High and Laurie

doesn’t fit with her vision of the future.

Pat Kennedy (Regan Harding) is a former

pupil of Laurie’s who has returned to teach

at Hautapu High. He could do a lot better for

himself but he is happy to just coast along as

Laurie’s assistant.

Enter Annie Tupua (Libby Wilson), a Maori

student teacher who just also happens to be a

superb sports person on the verge of selection

for the Silver Ferns.

Viv sees an opportunity, Laurie sees more

work, and Pat sees a vision of loveliness.

The fact that Annie is a born-again Christian

and a devout member of the Redemption

Church makes life interesting for all.

Sparks fly, team dynamics shift, the whistle is

blown and the audience are the winners!

This funny and feel-good play is the perfect

start to Riccarton Players 2018 season and

also to celebrate their move into the intimate

The Star

Viewpoint

Readers are backing

The Star’s call for

Megan Woods and other

Christchurch Government

MPs to move faster to solve

the disgraceful hospital

park and ride situation

David Collins – Parking

for Christchurch Hospital has

been an ongoing problem now

for more than seven years ever

since the hospital multi-story car

park building was closed due to

earthquake damage.

This is a problem for hospital

patients, visitors and for staff.

While there is quite a good bus

service to the hospital, which

may help visitors to the hospital,

this does not help the staff, who

are either starting at 6.30am for

the morning shift, or finishing

at 11.30pm from the afternoon

shift.

Changing buses through the

bus exchange isn’t an option at

those times, so the staff have to

drive to work, then have to compete

with contractors working

on all the new buildings going

on around that area. Plus the few

on-street parking spaces close to

the hospital are being removed

to make way for cycle lanes etc in

an attempt to encourage people

to cycle to work. Would you

want to work eight to 9 hours

– often working through meal

breaks due to heavy patient loads

and then have to cycle 10km

home in the dark in the rain, in

the middle of winter, and possibly

contend with drunk drivers?

Staff are finding they are having

to park further and further

away from the hospital and there

have been instances of staff being

attacked in the park as they

walk back to their cars. Imagine

how much worse parking will be

when the metro sports complex

gets built (removing most of the

staff afternoon car park by the

old brewery site) with morning

shift staff then having to fight for

parking with the gym bunnies

calling in for their pre-work

workouts. What has been needed

is for the old multi-story car

park to be rebuilt and this is

something that has been talked

about for several years now. In in

the meantime, using one of the

new car park buildings in town

and running the shuttle bus

from there, which would have

smoother surfaces and a covered

area to wait for the shuttle. It is

time to stop talking about the

problem and time to start fixing

the problem.

Ann Mason – The parking

should have been sorted before

the building started and that was

under National. Miracles were

not expected of National so why

should they be for Labour. Nine

years v six months. Get real.

Marilyn-Richard Hore – I

am a parent of a cancer kid. I

can’t use this as she would be

at risk of infection before you

consider the condition of the

grounds and she uses crutches

on a good day and a wheelchair

on bad. I

always leave

an hour

before time

to go into the

hospital and

walk miles. I’m

not looking

forward to

winter. Come

on CDHB,

council, Government,

we

need help now.

Debbie Costello – The

parking at Christchurch Hospital

has always been unbelievably

bad. My daughter is now 29 and

when she was born we had to

go there regularly. No point in

blaming any political party. Just

wonder who the idiots are that

plan a hospital and keep on expanding

it but don’t give a toss

about parking. I love trees but

time has come to cut a few down

right beside the hospital and put

up a multi-storey car park. Think

before you comment because this

has been going on for years. It’s

not just an earthquake problem.

It’s stupid town planning.

Alistair Price – I suggested to

the powers that be last year that a

hospital shuttle should run from

the bus exchange to the hospital.

Those that required hospital

care or visiting could bus into

the exchange or drive in and

use the car park

buildings. The

idea was basically

rubbished by the

decision-makers

as there are three

buses which pass

the hospital from

the exchange. I

still think it is a

simple solution

to a disgraceful

problem.

Ross Andrew – There is a

nice pristine council car-park

building in Lichfield St, which

is reported to be pretty well

empty most of the time. Unlike

that poor excuse for a car-park

currently used, it is undercover

and is closer for those who want

to walk.

But I know it would never

work, it is commonsense and the

CDHB and city council (there for

the people) might have to talk to

each other.

Christine Schuler – As

someone who had to use the

park and ride every day for

almost a month last winter, I

shudder at the thought of ever

needing to use it again. It was an

absolute nightmare and made a

very difficult and stressful time

even worse.

Beverly Jackson – Put

a temporary car park in the

hospital corner of Hagley Park.

Nothing has to be cut down

and it can be removed when the

problem is sorted.

Betty Wright – We use this

parking regularly and are not

looking forward to winter. The

council has a parking building

sitting half empty in Lichfield St;

why are the hospital and council

not working together and using a

couple empty floors for the park

and ride? Priorities are building

infrastructure, not stupid

cycleways. That money would

have built a parking building.

Council and health board get real.

Caroline Stevenson – I

have used the park and ride

on many occasions when my

late husband and mum were in

hospital. It is a great service but

the state of the grounds now is

disgusting. Lack of shelter needs

to be addressed urgently. I can

only imagine the quagmire it

will become once the winter

weather sets in. The landowner

should be made by the council

to bring the grounds up to a safe

and reasonable standard.

Dinah Jane Geda – An

embarrassment to the city. This

unkempt, unsafe, water-logged

area should be repaired pronto.

It will only get worse. Workers,

patients and visitors should have a

dignified place to park their cars.

Therefore decent shelter needs

to be provided to accommodate

the increased demand! Unwell,

disabled citizens and their

carers should not have to sustain

rain, snow and icy wind while

awaiting transport. Please

improve. The surface repair was

a step in the right direction..

Maryellen Robinson

The parking for the hospital

is pathetic in a city as big such

as Christchurch. The parking

needs to be sorted and council

needs to sort priorities out. As

a solo mum and not being able

to park close to the hospital

when my child goes to accident

and emergency is a joke. Need

to park miles away and walk

carrying a sick or injured child.

For people who are sick or

disabled, the parking is so not

good enough and the shuttle

doesn’t carry enough people in

one trip. If you find a park close

then you pay a fortune, but the

machines only take credit card

or coins but not debit cards. As

we are not originally from

Christchurch, parking for the

hospital here is a joke. My dad

is currently in the intensive care

unit and has been for a month

and daily visits to hospital take

an hour just to get a car park and

walk to the hospital.

Tiffany Cavanaugh –

Thanks for all the bad publicity

you’ve been giving it. Well

done to the only newspaper in

Christchurch that cares about

the people.

Twyford meeting

‘extremely constructive’

LAST Friday

we had our first

formal meeting

as a city council

with Hon Phil

Twyford, Minister

for Transport,

Housing and

Urban Development. It was

enormously constructive and

I believe this term will see

advances in both housing and

transport, the like of which we

haven’t seen for years.

I congratulated the minister

on the changes signalled in

the new Government policy

statement for land transport,

with its emphasis on safety,

public and active transport,

sustainability and value for

money.

ALL POLITICIANS have good

intentions.

We are all drawn to the

job because we want to

make a difference in our

communities.

And we develop new policies

that we think will make life

better for New Zealanders.

But good intentions are

not enough when it comes to

delivering on our policies. An

election promise is self-imposed

and must be costed and well

thought out.

If not, it is hard for that policy

to be delivered as promised

and risks looking like political

posturing as opposed to a

genuine effort to help.

We are seeing this happen to

the Ardern-Peters’ Government

as its promises start to look

more like political posturing.

After opposing the TPPA,

they have now implemented a

near identical deal.

Lianne Dalziel

We are clearly travelling

in the same direction. Our

interests are fully aligned. We

both believe all people should

have access to housing that is

secure, safe, affordable, warm

and dry. The Government

has ambitious building targets

when it comes to social and

affordable housing, as do we.

And we both understand the

criticality of transport links and

the need for modal shift from

single occupancy vehicles to

public transport, walking and

After criticising our

immigration numbers, they

have kept immigration levels

the same in spite of a promised

cut of 20,000 to 30,000 people

a year.

In Christchurch, their

long-running protest about

commissioners at ECan and

promise to hold elections

immediately has been scrapped

in favour of maintaining

National’s plan to have full

elections in 2019.

Again, the promise of a $300

million fund to speed up the

rebuild and be “on the table and

ready to be accessed” is now

subject to a budget bid and the

uncertainty that goes with that.

cycling. We need to make it

easy for people to do that.

In terms of housing, the

Government has set ambitious

targets for building affordable

homes.

We are very keen to partner

with them and the private

sector to achieve great outcomes

for our city.

I have reinforced with the

minister the challenges we

face with the current public

transport operating model,

both in terms of funding and

contracting for bus routes.

Securing transport corridors

is key to a modern public

transport system that gets

people to where they need to be

faster and more conveniently

than a car.

Good intentions not enough

Nicky Wagner

I do not doubt for a moment

the sincerity of the Prime

Minister or the Minister

for Greater Christchurch

Regeneration. They have the

good intentions. We all do.

But as they continue to

backtrack on the policies they

promised during the campaign,

or weaken the surety of their

commitments, their promises

look more and more like

political posturing.

Good intentions are not

enough, people voted for those

policies and those promises

must now be kept.

•Nicky Wagner is a National

list MP based in Christchurch

Central

Plan to help those

in EQC limbo

IT HAS emerged in recent days

that here are 664 families stuck

in a special type of EQC limbo

– people who have purchased

a home that they knew had

EQC repairs, only to find that

those repairs were botched and

botched so badly it pushed them

over EQC’s cap, and now their

insurance company won’t pay the

difference.

It’s a heart-wrenching situation

for people to be stuck in. Often

these are people who have done

everything right, they’ve got

builders’ reports and they’ve

inspected the house closely. But

now they’re trapped and their

most valuable asset will cost

hundreds of thousands of dollars

to repair.

THis is a real mess and it’s one

the previous Government should

have taken action on years ago.

The first legal case on this issue

was lodged in May 2016, and

EQC has always known this

was going to be an issue when

repaired homes started to be sold.

Yet when our Government took

over, nothing had been done.

Combined with the wider issue

of re-repairs and the $270 million

bill to taxpayer to put them right,

it seems to me there was wilful

ignorance about how badly

repairs had been botched and

what it would mean for people.

We have a plan to fix this issue

though and get people out of

limbo and able to move on with

their lives. The Government will

be looking to fund test cases to

clarify the law and clear up who

needs to pay.

THat will mean the people in

these awful situations can get

their homes repaired and have

a sense of hope and optimism

about the future again.

I’ve also asked for urgent advice

from EQC on the potential

liability to the taxpayer if it was

found that EQC was liable for

putting this right. It’s important

we know what this could cost so

we can plan for it effectively.

China Pledges for

The Star

The recent trade conflicts between US

and China have aroused worries that the

unilateral protectionist measures of US

government might incur trade wars between

the largest two economies and hence impede

the global economic recovery and growth

still overshadowed by the financial crisis

originated from Wall Street ten years ago.

While certain major advanced economies

resorted to isolationism and protectionism,

China has made new pledges to open its door wider. The Boao Forum, also

known as the “Asian Davos”, recently convened in Hainnan Province of China,

has boosted the confidence in global economic cooperation as Chinese President

Xi Jinping in his key-note speech announced substantial measures to further

expand China’s economic reform and opening-up.

China’s pledges have been warmly applauded by international stakeholders as

good news in the face of anti-globalization sentiment. Though the unveiling of

these pledges have little to do with the ongoing trade conflicts with the US, it

reflects China’s consistent determination to push forward trade and investment

facilitation and seek win-win outcomes with other countries.

The new measures touch upon several key aspects. First, China will significantly

broaden market access. It will ease restrictions on the establishment of foreign

financial institutions in China, accelerate the opening-up of its insurance

industry, and reduce limits on foreign investment in manufacturing industries.

Second, China will reduce tariffs and expand imports. China will significantly

lower the import tariffs for vehicles and some other products. On the other hand,

it is hoped that the imposed restrictions on normal trade of high-tech products

with China could be lifted. Third, China will strengthen IPR protection. China

is re-instituting the State Intellectual Property Office to step up law enforcement

and significantly raise the cost for offenders. Fourth, China is committed

to create more attractive investment environment for foreign investors. The

government will remove obstacles that prevent the market from playing a

decisive role in resource allocation. It will complete the revision of the negative

list on foreign investment in the first half of the year and implement across the

board the management system based on pre-establishment national treatment

and negative list. These measures expected to be implemented soon will inspire

confidence in China’s continued economic growth as well as injecting new

driving force for global economy.

It is worth noting that Hainan Province, the venue of the annual forum, which is

famous for its sunny beach resorts nowadays, used to be one of the most remote

and backward parts of China. The province owes its economic miracle to reform

and opening-up. The island was established as a Special Economic Zone 30

years ago, and has now become one of China’s many portals to the wider world.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the launching of reform and openingup

policy in China. The policy has fundamentally changed China, and the

experience China has learnt from its 40 years of phenomenal economic rise is to

keep open-minded and embrace the world. In the global village where interests

of different countries are increasingly intertwined, open systems are the best

course of action.

The economic cooperation between China and New Zealand has fully

demonstrated the benefits of trade and investment facilitation. The two

economies are highly complementary to each other and free trade has brought

the comparative advantages into full play. The bilateral trade volume has

increased from 1.7 million NZ dollars in 1972 to more than 24 billion last year,

bringing tangible benefits to enterprises and consumers in both countries.

And the negotiation on upgrading bilateral trade agreement has so far kept

good momentum. Both countries also firmly support the multi-trading system

symbolized by WTO, and have reinforced cooperation in APEC and other

multilateral frameworks. As globalization is inevitable and irreversible, the

only future for all countries and peoples on this planet is a shared one. To build

a world of greater prosperity is a collective task that demands the input and

responsibility of all global stakeholders.

Best pies at Bernie’s Diner in New South Wales

• By Mike Yardley

A COAST and highlands selfdrive

combo is a winning formula

for a blissful roadie from Sydney.

Pulling out of Kiama, I ventured

west on Tourist Drive 9 to

Robertson, a stirringly picturesque

driving route that winds

through lush and rolling hills and

dales, criss-crossed with quaint

leafy lanes, on its steady climb

into the Highlands.

Rolling through such a bucolic

escape-hatch from the rat race,

I was struck by the hundreds

of dry stone walls that lace the

landscape, interwoven into the

dreamy tapestry of pastoral

greens. Had a leprechaun spirited

me away to Ireland?

It turns out that many of the

walls were constructed in the

19th-century and have stood the

test of time. If you’ve done some

pre-trip planning, you’ll soon

discover there are a plethora of

delightful detours and stopovers

along the way.

Jamberoo is a charming village

en-route, with an Insta-worthy

Tudor-style historic inn lording

over the main street. Heading up

Jamberoo Mountain Rd, I took

the short diversion to Minnamurra

Rainforest, a rare remnant

of temperate rainforest thronging

with ancient fig trees, rock

orchids and elkhorns.

A sense of serenity washed over

me as I strolled up the path to

clap eyes on the sublime Minnamurra

Falls, gracefully tumbling

over the canyon’s cliff edge.

Back in the car, I purred through

the forest-draped mountain road

to reach Robertson, famous as the

town where the BABE film was

made.

They’re also very proud of

their potatoes, Robo Spuds. Like

all towns and villages across

the Southern Highlands, I soon

discovered they are particularly

parochial about their prowess in

pies.

With more pie outlets per

square km than anywhere else in

Australia, the region has crafted a

dedicated Pie Trail, with scores of

outlets touting their hero product.

June is prime “Pie Time” when

an annual festival is staged on

the back of the latest pie judging

results. Robertson Pie Shop is a

proven performer, if you’re feeling

peckish.

From Robertson, I took Tourist

Drive 15, to layover at Fitzroy

Falls, en-route to Moss Vale. The

Highlands brim with watercurtain

spectacles, but Fitzroy

Falls is the cascading king, with a

spectacularly-sized waterfall and

wonderful walking tracks, abuzz

with wildflowers, wildlife and

stirring views across sandstone

escarpments. After recent rain, it’s

euphoria-inducing.

SPECTACLE: Fitzroy Falls is a

cascading king surrounded by

walking tracks which you can

use to work up an appetite.

Bernie’s Diner was the winner

of the region’s top pie last

year.

Moss Vale is a gem of a town,

cultivating a fiendish following

for its magnificent homeware

specialty stores. Top stops include

Bowerbird on Argyle, a luxurious

emporium of fine textiles,

artwork and quirky gifts, while

Suzie Anderson’s Home is an

equally elegant hive of homeware

temptation and inspiration.

Peckish? Hot-foot it to Bernie’s

Diner, a Moss Vale main street

institution for nearly a century,

and proud winner of the region’s

Best Pie last year. It’s a very short

drive from Moss Vale to Bowral,

the biggest town in the Southern

Highlands, abuzz with attractions.

Cricket fans rejoice – Bowral

is the hometown of one of the

planting in so water can drain

easily.

•By planting winter vegetables

now, they will have enough time

to become well established before

the onset of the cold, wet, winter

weather. You can sow your own

seeds into seed trays indoors or

directly into the garden, depending

on the vegetable. Veges to

plant in April include broad

beans, broccoli, cabbage, carrots,

cauliflower, lettuce (all types), onions,

peas, radish, spinach, swedes

and turnips. Always stagger your

plantings (every two to three

weeks) so that all of your vegetables

do not mature at the same

time and instead provide crops

throughout the season. If space

is an issue, many varieties can be

grown in pots or containers – just

be sure to use good quality potting

mix.

Flower garden

•Summer displays are almost

finished, so keep dead-heading

those blooms you wish to prolong.

Winter flowering annuals

brighten up even the dreariest of

winters. Start planting out now,

but ensure you prepare the soil

The magazine for

100%

well beforehand, as per above.

Winter annuals include alyssum,

aquilegia, calendulas, cineraria,

cornflowers, lobelia, nemesia,

pansy, lupins (South Island) snapdragons,

status, stock, sweet peas,

sweet william and violas.

Bulbs

•Although main bulb planting

months are usually February and

March, it is still possible to plant

in early April, especially as garden

centres often have great deals to

clear stock. Bulbs grow best in

an open, sunny position in well

drained, fertile soil. Add compost

to lighten ‘heavy’ soil if this is an

issue. Plant bulbs in clusters for

a more pronounced flowering

effect. Remember to label where

you plant your new bulbs so that

you do not forget and accidentally

dig them up.

Roses

The autumn display of many

roses can be quite spectacular

after the hot dry months of

summer. If you provide a little

TLC, some varieties like iceberg

will continue flowering through

till July in warmer areas of the

country. Remove any dead flowers

and fallen leaves as they will

no doubt contain black spot and

rust. Apply compost and a light

dressing of rose fertiliser around

your rose bushes to improve the

organic matter in the soil and

help suppress weeds which tend

to almost pop up overnight this

time of year.

Lovely lawns

April is a safe month for

sowing a new lawn or renovating/repairing

an existing one.

For new lawns, success relies on

thorough preparation. If bringing

new topsoil on to your property,

make sure it is good quality as

new weeds can be brought in with

imported topsoil. Ensure you new

lawn is well drained, considering

wet winter months. Check you

have the correct grass variety for

your site and if you are unsure,

talk to local experts at your garden

centre for advice. Sow seed

evenly and be prepared to oversow

in a few weeks’ time where

the germination of the grass seed

has been patchy.

•With existing lawns, apply

fertiliser now and water it thoroughly

after application. Mow

regularly to help develop a strong

thatch.

Since the Challenge network of

service stations opened its doors

(and pumps) to the SuperGold Card,

more and more SuperGold Card users

have found that cheaper fuel and

old-fashioned service are a recipe for

success.

A regular to Christchurch’s

Challenge Tai Tapu, SuperGold Card

user Peter Kyle says while the savings

that the SuperGold Card provides

are quite significant, it is Challenge’s

service and people that keep him

coming back.

“I am a resident of Tai Tapu and a

holder of a SuperGold Card, which I

can use at my local Challenge service

station. When presenting the card the

staff are very obliging and happy to

make the transaction – I can’t fault it,”

he says.

Challenge is delighted to be able

to give more back to New Zealand’s

golden residents. Challenge is 100

percent Kiwi owned and has 85

service stations nationwide, each

unique in their own special way and a

reflection of the community it resides

in. Challenge’s motto is “local and

loyal” – not just in ownership but the

traditional way of doing things, with a

Selected Challenge service stations

The value of the Gold Card

The SuperGold Card is a discounts and

concessions card for seniors and veterans,

in recognition of their contribution to New

Zealand society.

What you receive by being a SuperGold

Card member:

• discounts and offers from more than

8,900 businesses and more than 13,700

outlets nationwide

• government concessions (including free

off-peak public transport)

• discounted services from your local

councils

The SuperGold Card offers a connection

to people who become new friends as well

as a trusted resource for information about

life’s daily questions.

The website is located at https://www.

supergold.govt.nz/ for an application or to

sign up for their newsletter. Their website

it a tremendous resource which provides

answers for topics of interest or concern.

Their monthly newsletter offers

information about important topics.

This month mentions that the shingles

immunisation has been added to the

National Immunisation

Schedule and will be free for

people aged 65 from 1 April

this year. Under the changes the

shingles immunisation will also

be free for the next two years for

people aged 66 to 80.

Every year one in three people

aged 65 and older will have a

fall. For those aged 80 and over,

the risk increases to one in two

people. But a new movement has

been launched to help people

over 65 stay healthy, active and

independent. ‘Live Stronger

for Longer’ is an initiative by

government agencies and health providers

across New Zealand aimed specifically

at people over 65. The aim is to provide

people practical advice – whether they’re

still working, recently retired, or happily

enjoying retirement. Falls prevention is key

and regular exercise is one of the best things

you can do to help reduce the risk of falls.

And you don’t have to do it alone. The ‘Live

Stronger for Longer’ website has links to

local groups who run strength and balance

classes. All the classes are designed to

support Seniors to build their leg and core

strength and improve their balance. There’s

something for everyone, from Pilates, tai

chi, chair yoga and light circuit classes.

Find out if there’s a class in your area and

look for the approved quality tick logo. This

ensures that the class has been approved

as safe and effective for older people. For

more information, go to www.livestronger.

org.nz. Plan ahead Falls can happen at any

time.

The Minister for Seniors Tracey Martin

mentions the growing problem of social

isolation for older people. It comes after

new research shows that one in five frail

elderly New Zealanders identify as lonely.

Loneliness has become a bit of a public

issue recently, although people generally

think of it as a problem for senior New

Zealanders, actually it isn’t. Loneliness

actually decreases as people get older (11.3%

of people aged 48-59 felt lonely, compared

to 6.6% aged 79-90). But loneliness (a lack

of quality and closeness in relationships)

and isolation (where people simply don’t

have relationships) are still major issues for

older people and the SuperGold Card has

some solutions which can be read online at

their website.

Middleton Grange

School

Formation is at the heart of the education

Middleton Grange School provides – a

whole of life formation. We see learning as

holistic; it aims to instruct the mind, shape

the heart and equip the hand. The root of

formation is faith and so Middleton Grange

not only provides a first rate general education

but also biblically based teaching in the

Christian faith.

Formation of the mind is not primarily

intellectual contemplation or conceptual

mastery but a learning that nurtures wisdom

and discernment. It is a learning that

challenges the mind to think, discern and

critique the ideas and theories pupils are

exposed to from a Christian perspective.

Middleton Grange’s learning culture allows

the formation of the heart so that it shapes

the character of each pupil to develop habits

of righteousness, compassion and integrity.

This formation of the mind and heart generates

responsiveness. We want our pupils to

engage in the society they live in, to be of

benefit and blessing in a practical way.

For Middleton Grange School, while our

academic results are of the highest level,

what is highly prized, is that our pupils

exercise wisdom, serve the community and

promote the well-being of others. It is about

forming the pupil to be the person God created

them to be.

All of this is summed up in the school

motto: Character, Excellence, Service for the

Glory of God.

Richard Vanderpyl, Principal

Christian Integrated

Schools

Working together for the good of students

and families has been a successful recipe

for Christian Integrated Schools in Christchurch.

The Christian School Network has been

in existence for over ten years. Aidanfield

Christian School, Emmanuel Christian

School, Hillview Christian School and

Middleton Grange School decided in 2005

that there was much to be gained by working

together cooperatively. They recognised

opportunities to share successful teaching

practice, curriculum development initiatives

across a wide spectrum of school operations

as well as cooperatively strengthening their

special Christian Character. They recognised

that their ability to serve students and

families was greatly enhanced by working

together in a close and trusting relationship.

The success of the network has seen other

schools wanting to join in. Early in the piece

Rangiora New Life School became part of

the network. The schools joined together to

support the genesis of Ashburton Christian

School and also culminated in the start up of

a brand new school in Rolleston in 2015.

The schools have developed interlocking

enrolment schools which assists in providing

transparent pathways in Christian education

from new entrant through to Year 13.

A further strength has been a cooperative

engagement with the Ministry of Education

who have been pivotal in assisting the

networks successful development.

Ultimate campus

taking shape at QEII

Park

Sue and John.

The Star

advertising feature

Construction of the new state-of-the-art campus for

Avonside Girls’ and Shirley Boys’ high schools is progressing

rapidly with opening on track for next year.

The new campus will feature a Performing Arts Centre

with a 750-seat theatre and a 200-seat theatre, a hockey turf,

four sports fields, three indoor gymnasiums, a café, and a

large library and learning centre.

Both Avonside Girls’ Principal Sue Hume and Shirley Boys’

High School Headmaster John Laurenson are excited by the

progress.

There are now more than 100 workers on site – that will

peak to more than 300 in coming months. The steel framing

is up and the concrete slabs are down and we can see now

just how big this campus will be – it’s simply wonderful,” says

John Laurenson.

“You can finally see all that we have been talking about and

dreaming about taking shape. We will be onsite with our

students, staff and community making the most of all of the

fantastic new facilities before we know it.”

The campus is due to open in Term Two of 2019. It will be

the first time in New Zealand’s history that two single sex

schools will be co-located.

John Laurenson says the co-location will enable the schools

to offer students more.

“Because we’re building together, we’ve been able to build

bigger and better facilities.”

Sue Hume says the co-location will also enable better educational

opportunities.

AVONSIDE GIRLS’

HIGH SCHOOL

“We’ll collaborate on teaching some senior subjects, so we

can offer students wider choice and there’s also the opportunity

to work together on co-curricular opportunities – such

as productions, sports competitions and the like.”

Both principals are keen to point out that the co-location is

not a merger.

“We’ll still be Shirley and they’ll still be Avonside. We’ll

work together, but both schools will retain their own culture,

identity, staff and uniform. This is not a co-ed school,” says

John Laurenson.

“Research shows that single sex education benefits both

boys and girls,” says Sue Hume. “Boys perform better academically

and girls participate more. This new campus, has

been designed so that students will still spend most of their

time in a single sex environment.”

Both Sue and John say the campus will be an asset the east

of Christchurch will be proud of.

“We’ll be right alongside the new QE2 Sport and Recreation

Centre, the School of Gymnastics and have a satellite

unit for Ferndale School onsite. It’s going to be a great place

to learn.”

OPEN EVENING

Thursday 24 May 2018 from 5.00pm – 7.00pm

The evening begins in the gymnasium at 5.00pm, with an

address from the Principal Mrs Sue Hume, and student

representatives. A tour of the school follows, with the

opportunity to talk to teachers and students.

We look forward to welcoming all prospective students and

families for 2019.

Burnside High

School

Burnside High School is pleased to invite

members of the community to our Open

Evening on Tuesday 15 May 2018.

We are well aware of the significance parents

place on the transition from Primary or

Intermediate to Secondary School and how

important it is to make the right decision

about this transition.

Burnside High School is a large secondary

school, a centre for academic excellence,

with an outstanding record of academic,

cultural and sporting success. The size of the

school ensures that there is an exceptionally

wide range of subjects and extra-curricular

opportunities available. This provides flexibility

for students to follow a pathway suited

to their ability, interests and skills.

The unique structure of the school retains

all the benefits of a large school but with

students in Divisions of approximately 700.

This ensures that students are known on

an individual basis and are supported and

mentored by senior students, Form Teachers,

Deans and Guidance Counsellors. This

strong pastoral and guidance focus helps

Burnside High School students strive to

excel and develop into well rounded New

Zealanders.

Students achieve well above the level of

similar schools in the attainment of NCEA

certificates and endorsements and perform

to the highest level in a range of local,

regional and national academic, cultural

and sporting competitions. The school is renowned

for its Specialist Music Programme,

the only such programme in the country.

The Open Evening offers Year 8 students

and their families a chance to view the facilities

and to experience some of the opportunities

RHS environment

provides quality

learning experience

Riccarton High School believes in creating

an optimum learning environment that

embraces the concept of blended learning

– an approach that combines effective styles

of traditional teaching and learning with the

best of what new technologies can provide.

As principal Neil Haywood explains,

“This environment enables all our students,

including those with special learning needs

and challenges, to fully and equally participate

in a quality learning experience. It

includes using our learning environments in

flexible ways to meet the individual needs of

our diverse range of students.

“We have a clear vision of what we are

aiming to achieve with our students – successful

young men and women who are

independent lifelong learners, and who are

caring, responsible, involved and globally

connected.

“Our strength comes from a genuine

belief in the Riccarton Way-Te Wairua o

Pῡtaringamotu and its associated values of

commitment, honesty, respect and excellence.

This forms the basis of how our

school community acts, thinks and relates to

others and operates within a supportive and

inclusive environment that recognises and

celebrates diversity.”

Student voice and community consultation

play a vital part in the creation of learning

pathways at Riccarton High School – pathways

that also develop resiliency, collaboration,

creativity and communication skills,

which are essential elements in creating

well-rounded young men and women, Mr

Haywood says.

“Our success in academic, sporting and

cultural endeavours is a result of our desire

to support and challenge our students to be

the best they can be.”

As Riccarton High School celebrates its

60th year, planning is underway for some

redevelopment around the site over the next

few years as part of the Canterbury Schools

Rebuild Programme.

“An information evening will be held on

Thursday, May 17 at 7pm in the school hall –

we look forward to seeing you there.”

Hagley Community

College

Kia ora tātou. Welcome to Hagley’s Junior

Graduating College!

What’s important at Hagley, a school with a

160 year old history which makes it nearly as

old as Christchurch itself?

Our values matter. Those values are seen in

the relationships our teachers build with each

of our students. It’s how we treat our students

that sets Hagley apart, valuing them as

individuals – that is the Hagley way. What

does that mean for our students? They feel that

teachers are interested in them and care about

their learning, they feel that they’re experiencing

success – and much more.

We’re often asked, what makes Hagley different?

We have a culture like no other. No one

wears a uniform and everyone’s on a first name

basis. But that’s just for starters. Students come

to Hagley because they’re treated with respect,

accepted for who they are as unique individuals.

They know it’s cool to be different!

We love our students aiming high and doing

well. We believe there is no single stereotype

for success. At Hagley being successful comes

in many shapes and forms.

We want you to feel excited about coming

here. We look forward to you being part of

Hagley’s 2019 Junior Graduating College!

All the programmes at Christchurch Girls’

leave school they will have choices and can

determine their own future and not have it

predetermined by others.

We prepare our students by asking them to

embrace tradition, innovation and excellence

developed by the students themselves, are an

integral part of the education we offer:

Empowering girls at

St Margaret’s College

Choosing the school that is right for your

daughter is an important decision and one

which no parent takes lightly. St Margaret’s

College Open Day offers an insight into a

unique education for girls from Years 1 to 13,

and boarding from Year 7. At all levels, the

emphasis is on learning combined with wellbeing

and pastoral care. Each year group has a

programme specifically designed to meet their

needs ensuring customised learning for every

girl. At St Margaret’s College we empower the

girls to become strong, resilient young women

who relate well to others and have confidence

and empathy to build lasting relationships.

We are proud of our girls’ achievement in the

2017 academic results with 100% pass rates

in NCEA levels 1 and 2, plus 99% at Level 3

and 99% in University Entrance. St Margaret’s

is the only girls’ school in the South Island

to offer the International Baccalaureate, an

international course with a global focus which

challenges and extends students. We also

offer many opportunities for girls to interact

with their male counterparts on an academic,

performing arts, sports and social basis while

holding on to the best daily learning environment.

We look forward to welcoming you to experience

the St Margaret’s College difference at

our Open Day Friday 11 May from 10:30am

to 1:00pm. The Principal’s address at 11:45am

will feature talks from both outgoing Executive

Principal, Gillian Simpson, and Diana Patchett,

who will start in the role at the beginning

of Term 3.

Middle schooling

makes a difference

Having a curriculum and learning environment

designed specifically for learners in the

“middle years” (Years 7-10) is essential to

ensure high levels of motivation and engagement

in learning during these crucial years.

At Hillmorton High School, having a

consistent approach without a transition to a

new school between Year 8 and 9, is proving

to be positive in terms of accelerating

student learning within the Middle School.

We are currently working with our architects

designing a new Middle School building

with 22 “General Learning Areas”. These

areas are flexible and can operate as single

cell classrooms or be opened up to allow

more adaptable learning spaces; the best of

both worlds. This building will not disrupt

learning as it is being built on the current

tennis courts.

This environment fits well with our broad

Middle School curriculum which allows

learners to explore and find both their

strengths and passions.

The advantage of combining the skills of

specialist Year 7 and 8 teachers, with the secondary

subject specialists gives our Middle

School learners significant advantage. Additionally,

our “Big Day Out” events and end

of year student electives allow our young

people to learn in a range of environments,

often participating in social action such as

Linwood College has a clear focus – to

meet the individual needs of every learner

in a safe, caring environment. Linwood

learners develop core attributes that will

ensure their success throughout life. They

are positive, resilient

learners who are collaborative

and communicate

effectively. Linwood

learners are critical thinkers

and creative problem

solvers. They have the

strong foundation of

knowledge, skills and

attributes required for

personalised excellence

and for future success in

a world in which technological

change and its attendant social

impacts are the norm.

Most importantly, Linwood learners discover

and realise their academic passions

and achieve individual excellence for

personalised learning and career pathways.

We employ the best teachers who see

themselves too as life-long learners. Our

teachers utilise the full range of teaching

and learning strategies to individualise

learning and ensure personalised success.

We have a diverse, vibrant, globally-rich

culture that creates a stable, connected

learning and social environment and contributes

to a richness which reflects New

Zealand’s current identity and prepares

our learners to be active global citizens.

Community connections are integral to

our school. Linwood College is secondary

school for both the Tamai

and Aupaki – the Bays –

of Learning. These Kāhui

Ako ensure a seamless

learning pathway from

early childhood centres,

schools and beyond to

We are excited by the

immediate prospect of a brand new learning

community. Our school is to be totally

rebuilt. We will have a purpose-built,

future-proofed learning environment, with

educational and sporting facilities to rival

any secondary school in the country.

Symbolically this marks a new era for

Linwood College. I can think of no better

way to outwardly signal our energy, enthusiasm

and optimism.

Mairehau High School

Mairehau High School Year 13 Building

and Construction students have an exciting

new project this year that will enable them

to gain real life skills, while also giving back

to the school community. Their brief is to

design, plan and build a large decking behind

the existing whare. The standards these

students are assessed in are ITO (Industry

Training Organisation) standards written

by industry, for industry; in this case the

BCITO (Building and Construction ITO).

Up to 40 Level 3 credits are at stake and can

be achieved whilst completing the project.

Mairehau High School has seen a significant

increase in roll in 2018, highlighting the

need for the creation of more shared spaces

around the school. This new outdoor space

will enhance the function of the school’s

whare and will have the advantage of the

LINWOOD COLLEGE

Haere Mai / Welcome

school being able to invite the wider community

for school and social gatherings. It

will be attached to the existing whare kitchen,

allowing the school and others to serve

food when the occasion allows. A special

feature is of the decking is its unusual shape

in the form of a native design to enhance the

look even further.

Head of Technology Axel Willmer is

delighted with the enthusiasm his students

have shown for the project. “The class has

been really engaged in this initiative from

the start. They are all enjoying the opportunity

for hands-on learning and are proud

to be part of creating an asset that will be

enjoyed by so many. It’s always great to see

young adults genuinely loving what they’re

doing.”

New direction for

Holden Commodore

• By Ross Kiddie

THE MEDIA launch of

Holden’s Commodore

would have to be the most

significant release of a new

model in this country for

2018.

Sadly, I wasn’t there for it.

I had made prior arrangements

to be in Melbourne

for a rock concert which

happened to fall on the

same day.

Nevertheless, I was

scheduled into one of the

new models on my home

patch for two weeks after

my return, becoming one

of the first journalists to

have a home patch drive of

the exciting new model.

Of course, Commodore

is no longer Australian, the

closing down of all Australian

new car manufacturing

took care of that, the new

model is sourced completely

built-up from Europe.

The new Commodore

lands here with three engine

variations. Sadly, it is

now sans V8, but there are

two 2-litre, four-cylinder

models, one petrol and one

diesel, and a 3.6-litre V6

model with four-wheeldrive.

The four-cylinder

units are both turbocharged

and drive through the front

wheels only.

While the drivelines are

vastly different to what

Commodore owners have

previously enjoyed, there

are both wagon and liftback

options along with varying

grade levels. Over time,

I’m sure I’ll work my way

through several variants in

the 12-model line-up, the

first out of the block was a

V6 RS-V liftback.

The new model is everything

a Commodore owner

would relate to, it is big car,

quiet, comfortable and in

V6 form, very powerful,

although it took me a while

to get my head around the

fact that it is four-wheeldrive

and the engine sits

transversely under the

bonnet, in contrast to its

predecessor which was a

longitudinal configuration.

Developing 235kW

and 381Nm, the engine is

strong and delivers with a

nice sound, it isn’t overbearing,

but you can tell

it is an angry, feisty unit

which likes to work hard.

Of course, being a large capacity

V6 it doesn’t have to

hunt towards the high end

of the rev band, it is hooked

to a conventional ninespeed

automatic transmission

that works to keep the

revs low, changing early so

that fuel use is minimised.

HOLDEN COMMODORE: Now sourced from Europe.

On that subject, Holden

claim an 8.9l/100km

(32mpg) combined cycle

average for the V6.

The driveline is wonderful,

it is silky smooth in

all areas and provides that

large car power that we

have come to expect from

the big Aussie battlers

down under. At open road

speed, movement is hushed

and it glides over road ripples

balanced and poised.

• Price – Holden

Commodore RS-V

liftback, $58,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4897mm;

width, 1863mm;

height, 1455mm

• Configuration – V6,

four-wheel-drive,

3649cc, 235kW,

381Nm, nine-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.8sec

• Fuel usage –

8.9l/100km

A lot of the latter is due

to the all-drive system,

the new Commodore feels

controlled and tight in the

chassis. Saying that, the suspension

is absorbent, the

spring and damper rates are

biased towards comfort and

the in-cabin ride is glorious

and it’s not often I say that

about any car on Christchurch

battered roads.

I took the test car on my

favoured route east of the

Malvern Hills and it cruises

the high country roads

beautifully, it could easily

be mistaken for a further

development of its Aussie

predecessor such is its poise

and level of comfort.

When pushed into a

quick corner there is surety

within the floorpan that

provides confidence, there

is a lot of feedback from

what the tyres are doing in

relation to the road surface,

and sitting on high quality,

sport specification Continental

rubber (245/45

x 18in) there is a lot of

natural grip and directional

stability on offer.

Of course, the new Commodore

is all about replicating

the large car balance

we are used to, and it does

that brilliantly. Not only is

there a huge area to spread

around inside, but there is

huge load space.

On our Melbourne trip,

my wife and I were picked

up from the central city

and taken to the airport by

a friend who has recently

purchased one of the last

generation Aussie Commodores,

our two large

suitcases were difficult to

load into the boot through

the narrow opening. Not

so in the newcomer, the

same suitcases were easily

transported.

In RS-V specification, the

V6 liftback sits at $58,990,

that fits well with the last

of the outgoing models.

For that money it comes

with a high degree of

specification, major items

include full leather trim

with heated seats, MyLink

infotainment network,

head-up display, paddleshift

transmission selectors

and satellite navigation.

Of course, even though

it is European sourced the

new generation Commodore

qualifies for a five-star

Australasian New Car

Assessment Program safety

rating.

Even though it is different

in many areas, General

Motors has done well to

make the new Commodore

feel like what a buyer would

expect from the nameplate.

From my first experience,

I’d go as far as to say it has

done that well, it feels very

Commodore-like and is

a pleasurable drive for all

occupants.

Watch this space

for further drives, I’m

scheduled into a Calais

soon and it is my intention

to further report its

dynamics in-depth.

Ultimate Warrior returns to face Dragons

• By Michael Burgess

THE ULTIMATE Warrior is

back.

Simon Mannering is in line

to start his first NRL game of

the season after being named

in the Warriors side to face the

St George Illawarra Dragons

on Friday night at Mt Smart

Stadium.

Mannering missed the first

four matches with a shoulder injury

picked up in the pre-season,

but has been impressive since his

return to action in a bench role

against the Cowboys in round

five.

He played 57min against

North Queensland (70m from

nine runs and 23 tackles) and

61min against Brisbane (70m

from 10 runs, 33 tackles).

“It felt good to be back out

there, physically it felt fine,” said

Mannering, who will make his

283rd NRL appearance on Friday.

“I don’t really mind where I

play; I’ll play wherever is best for

the team.”

Mannering’s switch back to the

edge should also revitalise him,

after a few years at lock with

a seemingly endless defensive

workload.

Mannering replaces Leivaha

Pulu, who appeared in the first

six matches of the season but

was forced off with a foot injury

midway through the first half

last Saturday. Filling Mannering’s

spot on the interchange is 44-

game front-rower Albert Vete.

Vete has been a regular over

the last three seasons but has

been consigned to reserve grade

so far this year. He helped his

cause with a standout display

against the Sea Eagles last Saturday,

with 174m from 15 runs

including 55 post-contact metres

with six tackle breaks.

Aside from Vete, the other

players on the extended eightman

bench are utility Jazz

Tevaga, prop Sam Lisone, centre

Gelling, prop Chris Satae, halfback

Mason Lino, second-rower

Isaiah Papali’i and wing Charnze

Nicoll-Klokstad. After six consecutive

Saturday matches, the

encounter with the Dragons will

be the first of eight Friday night

matches the Warriors play this

season. – NZ Herald

Teenager takes next NRL step

FORMER ST Thomas of

Canterbury and Hornby

Panthers junior Zinzan Martin

has taken his next step in his

bid to play in the NRL.

The 17-year-old scored a hattrick

of tries for the Western

Lions against the North Devils

in the Townsville and Districts

competition on Saturday.

Martin, who is on a threeyear

scholarship with the North

Queensland Cowboys, was

scouted by the powerhouse

league club while competing in

a schoolboy tournament for St

Thomas.

The centre/fullback relocated

to Townsville, home of the

Cowboys, at the start of the year

to further his development in

the game.

His hat-trick came against

no ordinary competition, with

former St George Illawarra

Dragons and Cowboys prop

Ricky Thorby turning out for

the North Devils, while former

Cowboy Wayne Ulugia was part

of Martin’s Lions side.

Martin is named after Zinzan

Brooke, who was his father’s

favourite rugby union player.

“Funnily enough, dad is a

rugby league man through and

through,” said Martin.

However, Martin also has

rugby union experience. Last

year he played a key role for

St Thomas’ first XV, helping

them to victory in the UC

Championship plate final

against Waimea Combined.

Since relocating to Australia,

Martin has spent time playing

for Townsville in the Mal

Meninga Cup. However, he

was omitted from Townsville’s

most recent game, allowing the

Western Lions to select him.

Martin insists he didn’t take

the field with a point to prove

and thanked to teammates for

their role in his hat-trick on

debut. “I’m here in Australia to

learn as much as I can. Coming

from New Zealand, it’s not the

same development system

there, and I think the Aussie

way brings a lot more

progression.”

Martin has an ability to play

across the backline and says he

is “still not sure” where his best

position is after being selected

at fullback and centre for

Townsville.

Big night at

tennis awards

• By Gordon Findlater

went undefeated in singles and

doubles during Cashmere’s fifth

straight men’s interclub title.

Li is going home to catch up with

Li is set to line up on the left

Li said he was enjoying his

time in the south and was not

keeping too much of an eye on

his old team.

‘’I am really focused on being

here and what I can control here.

I think they [Blues] have just

been unlucky in the past couple

of weeks,” Li said.

‘’They have got some good

coaches and are working hard.”

He said playing in Dunedin

wasn’t much different to Auckland,

apart from one thing.

‘’The only thing different is

this place is not busy. There is no

traffic here and it is a small little

town which I quite enjoy.

‘’Here it takes me 10min to get

from my home. Up there, it takes

somewhere between half an hour

to 45min to get to training from

my home.

‘’Auckland is Auckland, big

city, traffic every day. That is why

I came down here.

‘’Just the support from around

gaRy LawSon

here. Everyone buys into one

team, the Highlanders. The people

are amazing.’’

And playing more makes it

that much better. ‘’I am enjoying

it, getting some game time, and

grateful with the opportunity.’’

Li was always known for his

blinding pace. He scored five tries

for North Harbour last year in a

match against Taranaki, equalling

a record for the most tries in

a match in the domestic competition.

Good storage ideas are abundant and all

manner of products are available to make

homes more minimalistic. While it’s nice to buy

your storage from designer homewares stores,

the likes of The Warehouse and Kmart sell many

simple products for masking clutter. Fabric

storage cubes are a great start for disguising

the clutter. They fit neatly into shelves and

wardrobes and thanks to competition from the

big department stores, can cost $10 or less

each. You’ll also find wicker, felt, cotton, woven

and metal baskets for a song.

Another clever idea, is to buy a cheap set of

melamine shelves for use in your wardrobe. A

set of shelves does much the same job as an

expensive wardrobe fit out. You can move the

shelf heights to accommodate shoes and boots.

It looks good, but costs little.

Another wardrobe organisation is a Wardrobe

Starter Kit from Hardware stores. While you’re

there, check out bicycle storage hooks as well.

As well as being practical, storage products

can make a design statement. The important

thing is to be consistent. don’t, for example,

buy storage cubes in different colours. If you’re

looking for really clever home storage ideas

take a tip from the tiny home movement.

Catherine Foster who wrote Small House Living,

downsized her life to under 90sq m and has

interviewed Kiwis who live in architecturally

designed homes of that size or smaller.

Each and every house in Foster’s book uses

storage effectively to tame their belongings.

Some have done it on the smell of an oily rag,

Selling your property?

First impressions count,

get rid of the clutter.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll know that getting rid of clutter

is one of the keys to selling property fast and at a good price. Good storage

systems can look cool in their own right, and help organise your clutter.

sometimes buying pre-cut heavy duty plywood

that only has to be screwed together, she says.

Garages and lofts are house vendors’ friends.

The garage is one of the few places in the house

that buyers won’t be put off by a little extra

stuff, but the more that can be hidden away in

stacked crates the better. Consider using flat

pack cupboards that can be taken with you.

The most effective way of using these is to

find a wall where the whole area can be covered

floor to ceiling,”

“Simple carpentry like this is dIY level if you’re

handy, or get a handyman in for a few hours, but

make sure it is excluded from the list of chattels

on the sale agreement.”

Loft spaces are often wasted space in Kiwi

homes. A relatively cheap way to open up

the space is to install a loft ladder. You will be

amazed at what people use the additional

storage space for, once they’ve installed it.

Cheap clever storage ideas aren’t just limited

to the interior of the house, garage and loft. The

Warehouse, Mitre 10 & other hardware stores

sell garden storage to hide away things usually

left outside.

Foldable garden storage boxes that cost

from around $99 can be used to store garden

tools, outdoor cushions and pool paraphernalia.

The next step up is a cheap garden shed for

around $200 upwards from Mitre 10, Bunnings

Warehouse and other stores.

Finally, if you’re looking for more inspiration

Google “storage ideas”, search the same on

Pinterest, or check out books on the subject

from your local library. You’ll be amazed at how

many everyday items can be repurposed for

storage at the same time as adding design

excellence to your home.
