BEAUTIFUL BRIGHTON: This photo of a golden sunrise over the New Brighton Pier on Sunday was

captured by Linwood resident Allan Macala. On his days off, Mr Macala will often walk along the beach

at sunrise. The New Brighton Pier re-opened earlier this month following a 16-month, $8.5 million

earthquake repairs. Mr Macala said it was good the repairs had been completed as the pier is a historical

landmark.

Meeting

sought

with

ministry

over QE II

school

zones

• By Sophie Cornish

THE PAPANUI-Innes

Community Board will invite

the Ministry of Education to

meet with it over the proposed

enrolment zones for Shirley

Boys and Avonside Girls’ High

Schools.

After writing to the MOE in

May, the community board is

“disappointed” by the response,

said chairwoman Ali Jones.

The schools will re-locate

to a shared campus at QE II

Park next year. The letter from

the community board to the

MOE outlined concerns that

the suburbs of Richmond and

Shirley were not included in the

new draft zone.

MOE deputy secretary sector

enablement and support Katrina

Casey replied on behalf of Minister

of Education Chris Hipkins.

Her letter “acknowledged

that the post-quake period for

people in Christchurch has been

stressful, demanding

and challenging for many families.”

from the editor’s desk

NOW IF that photo on the front page

today doesn’t make you want to go to the

pier, then nothing will.

It was taken on Sunday by Linwood

resident Allan Macala who often walks the

beach before sunrise.

The pier re-opened this month after a 16 month $8.5 million

repair. Wet weather has kept the people away, but with the shortest

day now behind us, and crisp frosty mornings starting to bite,

it all looks good leading into spring.

More rumblings over the QE II site for Shirley Boys’ and Avonside

Girls’ (see page 1).

The Papanui-Innes Community Board wants more discussion

with the Ministry of Education over the proposed enrolment

zones.

It’s an issue that won’t go away in a hurry.

Home & Leisure Show this weekend

Food, drink tasting and prizes

THE STAR Media Home &

Leisure Show promises to be the

best yet.

Celebrating its 20th year of

supporting local businesses, the

event has an extra special flavour

this time around with a unique

tasting corner.

Event manager Vanessa

Fleming is super-enthused about

the new addition, which reflects

the importance of leisure in

people’s lives these days.

“There will be a wide range

of food and drink products to

sample, which people can then

go home and recreate in their

own kitchens,” she says.

And with the latest in kitchen

innovations and products on

display, it’s a chance to get

creative in all aspects of life.

Said Star Media chief executive

Steve McCaughan: “I am very

excited about the new elements

we have introduced with the

addition of our free taste section,

new glossy Home and Leisure

magazine, plus fantastic prizes to

be won.”

Seminars are held throughout

each of the three days and

feature everything from

starting a renovation through

to the design and decoration

stage.

A hot topic this year is water,

with multiple water filtration

systems being exhibited at the

show, along with spa pools

and the best in heating

technology.

“This show is designed to

inspire people with the latest in

home and lifestyle technology,”

says Ms Fleming.

Rats seen at Bexley Reserve after rubbish dumping

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ILLEGAL RUBBISH dumping at

Bexley Reserve is causing rats to

populate nearby properties.

Residents living near the

reserve on Pages Rd are upset

after putting up with the consequences

of several incidents of fly

tipping.

One large pile of rubbish was

removed by the city council earlier

this month.

Pegasus Post

was told it has

been an issue

since November.

The rubbish

piles included

chicken bones,

tea bags, boxes

and house hold

Tim Baker

items.

In the past year, the city council

has received 22 complaints to

remove rubbish from the reserve.

Resident Paula Bartlett-Pak

said the rubbish has been

bringing rats into the area and

it shouldn’t have taken the city

council so long to clean it up.

Her views have been backed

by neighbours Trish Barnes,

Christine Robertson and Dave

Bonnington.

Mrs Robertson said it is the

first time her property has had

rats and she has placed poison

around the property.

“I was outside and thought

‘who put that bloody big rock

in the drive way?’ And then it

moved and then I thought ‘oh my

god’ it is a bloody rat,” she said.

Mr Bonnington said he has

lived next to Bexley Reserve for

12 years and never had rats until

now.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board member Tim Baker said

he saw a name in the rubbish and

is hoping the city council will

now be able to track down who

has dumped it.

City council community parks

manager Al Hardy said it does

not know who is responsible for

the rubbish dumping.

GROSS: A large pile of

rubbish at Bexley Reserve has

been attracting rats to nearby

properties on Pages Rd.


Additional security barriers

have been added to the reserve

and vegetation pruned to help

minimise the illegal dumpings.

Dumping rubbish is punishable

by a fine of up to $400.

Concerns have also been raised

over how often the reserve is

maintained.

Over the past 12 months, 129

maintenance jobs have been

performed at the reserve, and a

further 64 hours of pruning carried

out by city council rangers.

Lack of consultation on barriers criticised

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

BURWOOD RESIDENTS

have been left disappointed

after planned changes to the

placement of barriers in the red

zone were not consulted on.

The Burwood East Residents’

Association is concerned Land

Information New Zealand’s

plans to resolve anti-social issues

in the red zone “will not entirely

address” all problems it raised.

It first sent a letter to the

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board in April calling for the

placement of barriers to be

reviewed as a result of boy racers

doing burnouts in the red zone.

Rubbish dumping, unauthorised

vehicles risking the safety of

pedestrians and cyclists as well

as causing damage to grass and

vegetation have raised concerns.

LINZ, which is responsible

for managing Crown-owned

land in the residential red

zone, has since devised a plan

to add additional bollards and

Lions donate waterfront seats

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

TWO DONATED bench

seats have been installed on

New Brighton’s foreshore in

recognition of the Lions Club’s

The seats, gifted by the Lions

Each seat has a matching

plaque reading “donated to the

New Brighton community by the

Lions Club of New Brighton in

June 2018 to recognise the Lions

Clubs’ international centennial

1917-2017.”

They also feature the club’s

a recent letter presented to the

LINZ attended the community

board’s meeting last week to address

Crown property deputy chief

it and the city council had since

looked carefully at the location of

Rawhiti

drain to

be fixed

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A PROBLEMATIC drain

causing parts of New Brighton’s

Rawhiti Golf Club to become

waterlogged will get fixed.

The golf club has been left optimistic

after a meeting with city

council staff recently to have action

taken over the flood-prone

Rawhiti Drain.

The drain is designed to take

any overflow of water from the

surrounding North Beach suburb

into the river.

It runs from the Grantley St

end of the golf course, through

to Keyes Rd before a pipe takes

the excess water into the Avon

River.

The club first approached the

city council over the issue about

a year ago.

City council’s land drainage

manager Keith Davison said the

drain will have some minor regrading

where necessary.

Work will begin over the next

couple of months.

A small excavator will form

the bottom of the drain so

surface water runs downhill as

designed.

Mr Davison said a field tile

line running under the drain’s

channel will be cleaned of silt

and most likely checked for any

damage. He said the drain is not

the only problem causing the

flooding.

“Local groundwater is elevated,

this was caused by the

preceding years’ higher than

average rainfall,” Mr Davison

said.

City council staff suspect there

had also been post-earthquake

ground settlement which causes

surface water to pond in different

areas.

The golf club’s president Leon

Zilinskas said it was a positive

outcome and was pleased the

city council was going to do

something about it.

NEW RELEASES

Paul Simon - The Life

By robert Hilburn

‘There’s no tougher a mind, no more tender a voice than Paul Simon, and there’s no better

man than Robert Hilburn to decipher the hardwiring of this hyperintellect...great songs can

never be fully explained, but the great man on his way to find those songs surely can.’ - Bono

Through such hits as “The Sound of Silence,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Still Crazy After

All These Years,” and “Graceland,” Paul Simon has spoken to us in songs for a half-century

about alienation, doubt, survival, and faith in ways that have established him as one of

the most honoured and beloved songwriters in American pop music history. Yet Simon has

refused to talk to potential biographers and urged those close to him to also remain silent.

But Simon not only agreed to talk to biographer Robert Hilburn for what has amounted to

more than sixty hours, he also encouraged his family and friends to sit down for in-depth

interviews.

Paul Simon is a revealing account of the challenges and sacrifices of artistry at the highest

level. He has also lived a roller-coaster life of extreme ups and downs. We not only learn

Paul’s unrelenting drive to achieve artistry, but also the subsequent struggles to protect

that artistry against distractions - fame, wealth, marriage, divorce, drugs, complacency,

public rejection, self-doubt - that have frequently derailed pop stars and each of which he

encountered. From dominating the charts with Art Garfunkel and a successful reinvention as a

solo artist, to his multiple marriages and highly publicized second divorce from Carrie Fisher,

this book covers all aspects of this American icon.

Refugee

By Alan Gratz

JOSEF is a Jewish boy living in 1930s Nazi Germany. With the threat of concentration

camps looming, he and his family board a ship bound for the other side of the world ...

ISABEL is a Cuban girl in 1994. With riots and unrest plaguing her country, she and her

family set out on a raft, hoping to find safety in America . . . MAHMOUD is a Syrian boy in

2015. With his homeland torn apart by violence and destruction, he and his family begin

a long trek toward Europe . . . All three kids go on harrowing journeys in search of refuge.

All will face unimaginable dangers -- from drownings to bombings to betrayals. But there

is always the hope of tomorrow. And although Josef, Isabel, and Mahmoud are separated

by continents and decades, shocking connections will tie their stories together in the end.

This action-packed novel tackles topics both timely and timeless: courage, survival, and

the quest for home.

The President is Missing

By President Bill Clinton and James Patterson

The President is Missing. The world is in shock.

But the reason he’s missing is much worse than anyone can imagine.

With details only a President could know, and the kind of suspense only James Patterson

can deliver.

‘The dream team delivers big time a Clinton’s insider secrets and Patterson’s storytelling

genius make this the political thriller of the decade.’ - Lee Child

‘A bullet train of a thriller. The Day of the Jackal for the twenty-first century.’

- A.J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window

‘Yes, The President is Missing is fiction - it’s a thriller - but James Patterson and I have

come up with three of the most frightening days in the history of the presidency. And it

could really happen... These days, the seemingly impossible can happen. And it happens

so fast. I believe that readers will not soon forget President Jonathan Duncan and his

story.’ - Bill Clinton

‘Needless to say, we had some great conversations about the presidency, what life in

Washington is really like, and about the state of America and the rest of the world.’

Your Local Views

Gary Knight responds to

articles about the plans

to develop a multipurpose

outdoor sports

facility at Rawhiti Domain

and illuminate the New

Brighton Clock Tower

To meet the leisure and

recreational needs of New

Brighton residents, sporting

programmes are vital to unite

future community growth

and bolster the

sustainability of

groups

pro-active in this

area.

Accolades

are therefore

extended

to Eastern

Community

Sporting and

Recreational Inc

for its intention

to lease 3881 sq m of land at

Rawhiti Domain for tennis

and netball court upgrading,

complete with a canopy. The

10-year plan to open this $2.2

million facility, which received

major support through public

submissions, will hopefully be

sanctioned by a city council

decision to allow the lease. The

$675.000 raised by the Rata

Foundation and New Zealand

Community Trust bears

testimony to the communitybased

awareness of these groups.

The criteria of the city council’s

Long Term Plan 2018-2028 to

operate grants as a contributory

factor towards community

building is surely the catalyst

for the remaining required

$1,525,000 to be met from city

council coffers as an additional

anchor project to ensure this

worthy community facility

upgrade goes ahead.

As gifts from Richard Edward

Green in the 1920s, the Sumner

clock tower, J

E Fitzgerald statue

and the New Brighton

Clock Tower

are memorable

instances in the

New Brighton community

archives.

As an iconic

landmark, however,

the New Brighton

Clock Tower is of

major significance

to the area. Designed by architect

Benjamin Ager, this revered

structure, having had its foundation

stone laid by mayoress Irene

Leavre in 1934, is of historic and

remembrance status for many.

Within this context, accolades

are extended to Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

chairwoman Kim Money for her

innovative concept of having the

clock tower floodlit. This would

be a pro-active step to enlighten

this memorable land mark with a

visual focus.

Reading takes you places

North New

Brighton

resident Bob

Docherty has

made an

exciting career

out of travelling

around New Zealand to

promote reading and

literacy in schools. He

writes about the value of

teaching children to read

SCOTTISH ACTOR Sir Thomas

Sean Connery was once asked

when he got his first break. He

replied that it was at the age of

five when his mother taught him

how to read.

This highlights an important

fact about children and reading

– if you want your children to

read, then parents and caregivers

must show children that they

value reading by reading themselves

and by reading to children

from an early age.

This is particularly true of

fathers as research shows that

boys are lagging behind girls in

the literacy stakes. For children

the value of reading is immense.

They learn how language

works, increase their vocabulary,

become better writers and

their overall communication

skills are improved.

BOOKS: Bob Docherty says

actor Sean Connery inspires

children to read.

Plus, reading is fun, stimulates

imagination and increases

knowledge better than any other

media.

In these days when the internet

rules and social media and

cell phones dominate people’s

lives, reading seems to have

taken a secondary role and there

is a need for teachers and educationalists

to take reading back to

children to let them know how

good it is.

This is where I come in. I read

hundreds of children’s books

from board books for babies

to picture books, early readers,

primary fiction and fiction for

teenagers and young adults.

I review books sent to me by

leading publishers on my blog at

https://bobsbooksnz.wordpress.

com/

I also visit schools all over

New Zealand to talk about reading

and books, with the aim of

encouraging children to read. I

love doing it and teachers tell me

that after I leave their schools,

children flock to the library to

read them.

This heartens me enormously.

In my lifetime two things help

to define you as a person – the

people you meet and the books

that you read. Get reading.

Celebrating Matariki in the red zone

A LARGE feast was served to 500

people in the red zone to celebrate

Matariki.

The event was held at Avebury

House and the Richmond Community

Gardens.

The free feed included a traditionally

prepared hangi along

with a meal by chef Richard Till

using locally grown produce

cooked on site in the Avebury

House kitchen.

Matariki in the Zone was a

collaboration by Avebury House

Community Trust, Richmond

Community Garden and Avon-

Ōtākaro Network.

Matariki is known as the Māori

New Year and is a time for letting

go of the past and looking to the

future by celebrating last season’s

harvest and preparing for the

new. It is signalled by the rise

of Matariki or the Pleiades star

constellation on the horizon of the

night sky.

Richmond Community Garden

member Hayley Guglietta said it

was fitting the community garden

in the red zone adjoining Avebury

Park was the site of the festival.

Two new gardens were opened

including an edible native koru

garden and a household rain

garden exemplar for treating

stormwater was built and officially

opened.

ENVIRONMENTAL: Volunteers building a household rain

garden exemplar and listening to music.

Christchurch Intermediate

Schools

Specialists in Year 7 and Year 8 Education

OPEN NIGHTS 2018

Intermediate schools target the needs of

early adolescent Year 7 & 8 students -

11-13 year olds. These two-year, co-educational

schools are in many ways ideal environments

for students to begin their adventures into

adolescence.

Early adolescence is a unique and special time

of immense physical, intellectual, emotional

and social development. These changes

create specific needs and challenges that are

significantly different from the needs of younger

children or older adolescents.

An intermediate school can support your Year 7 &

8 child in ways that include but are not limited to:

• The staff are all focussed on the needs of

early adolescents and teach in these schools

because they establish strong relationships

and particularly enjoy working with Year 7 & 8

students. They are highly qualified, experienced

and skilled teachers of early adolescent

students, who ensure pastoral, social and

emotional needs are well supported.

• The resources are all designed and acquired

to meet the needs of this age group - age

Intermediates are exciting places for students to

begin their adventure into adolescence. In addition

to providing a rich, age and stage, middle-yearsspecific

curriculum in a stimulating, challenging and

rewarding environment, intermediates cater for many

interest groups and clubs.

It is not surprising that New Zealand and overseas

research concludes that the quality of teaching is

one of the most significant factors influencing how

well students learn at school. Given that quality

teaching occurs in most New Zealand schools

regardless of their type, it’s only natural to consider

other factors that might make a difference for early

adolescents.

The young people at intermediates are changing

rapidly – physically, emotionally and socially.

Intermediates focus solely on this age group and

are well positioned to meet their needs. A mix

of specialist and home room teachers helps to

provide the choices, challenge, love for practical

activities and academic rigour in the students’

learning. Resourcing, both human and physical, that

is developed deliberately to meet early adolescent

student needs, helps to build self esteem, assist

students to develop and find strengths and links

learning with career aspirations. Teachers who are

focussed solely on the middle years are able to work

collaboratively to provide level-appropriate engaging

appropriate experiences, opportunities and

challenges are planned for and provided.

• Leadership development focuses on

opportunities for students to develop the

important skills associated with leading their peers

- people their own age.

• Secure and supportive yet challenging

environments are provided to support students

to develop their independence.

• Students thrive on the opportunity to step up.

• Specialist teaching opportunities enable

students to receive age appropriate and

challenging learning in technology, science,

performing arts and visual arts.

• Significant home group environments support

strong literacy and numeracy programmes

differentiated in creative ways to meet students’

individual needs - all students are extended

and the focus is on accelerating progress.

The intermediate schools in Christchurch work

closely together to collectively provide a wide

range of extracurricular opportunities for students

in sporting, cultural and academic contexts.

programmes that connect learning to students’ lives

and interests and provide challenge for all students

to achieve to the best of their ability.

Current intermediate school students list these

points:

1. “There are more children of my own age here

because our school takes all the year sixes from a

few different schools and they come to one school.

And because we’ve got bigger numbers of pupils

we can have more sports teams and … there’s

something for everyone” Y8 child

2. “Our school has different specialist teachers for

subjects like music art, P.E. and technology, so we

get used to that – which is good preparation for

secondary school” Y7 girl

3. “At intermediate school everything is for our two

years (age group).” Y8 girl

4. “I like that we don’t have to look out for little

children. That was neat at our old (primary) school

but it’s nice to just have our own age here. Y7 boy

5. “It’s good that we don’t have big secondary kids

here. We can worry about them when we’re older…

and then we’ll be big too. Y8 boy

to hula hoop with

her classmates.

In2Hula was founded by

SECONDARY SCHOOL SELECTION

Parklands kendo fighter to

do battle in South Korea

• By Jacob Page

PARKLANDS kendo

fighter Tania Butterfield is

keen to create her own slice

of history.

The 31-year-old will

be part of the first New

Zealand women’s Kendo

team to attend the world

championships in South

Korea in September.

New Zealand did not

send a women’s team

in 2015 because it did

not have a high enough

calibre of competitors, said

Butterfield. “It’s a huge

honour because the six of

us going have had to work

very hard to get there, so

it’s nice to be part of it.”

Kendo is a Japanese

form of fencing with twohanded

bamboo swords. It

was originally developed as

a safe form of sword training

for the samurai.

Other Canterbury Kendo

Club members Masa Matsunami

and Kai Edwards

were selected in the New

Zealand men’s team. Edwards,

a Cashmere High

student, will go to South

Korea as an apprentice.

Butterfield’s journey

started in 2013 when she

was an english teacher on a

two-year OE.

“At school I learnt Japanese

and we had to do a

project on a Japanese sport

and I was the only one who

chose kendo and I found it

really interesting,” she said.

“When I went to Japan,

I had a colleague ask me

if there was anything I

wanted to really do while I

was living there and I said

I’d like to give kendo a try.

MARTIAL ARTS:

Masa Matsunami,

Tania Butterfield

and Kai Edwards will

represent New Zealand

at the kendo world

championships in Korea

in September.

“One of my student’s fathers

invited me to try one

night and even left me this

broken english message

through Google translate

so I thought I should really

show up. Things just progressed

from there.”

Butterfield’s brother

Andrew was also a New

Zealand judo representative.

She has earned her

kendo brown belt and is

now up to her third dan.

Butterfield said the men

hoped to rank in the world

top eight at the competition,

while the women are

heading into the unknown.

She said kendo is more

mental than physical, and

it is one of the rare sports

where you can get better

with age. “Some of the best

in the world are in their

80s so it’s a sport for life.”

SECONDARY SCHOOL SELECTION

State of the art campus opens next year

Construction of the new campus for

Avonside Girls’ and Shirley Boys’ High

Schools is progressing rapidly with

opening on track for 2019.

The new campus will feature a Performing

Arts Centre with a 750-seat theatre and a

100-seat theatre, a hockey turf, four sports

fields, three indoor gymnasiums, a café,

and a large library and learning centre.

Both Avonside Girls’ High School

Principal Sue Hume and Shirley Boys’

Headmaster John Laurenson are excited

by the progress.

“You can finally see that all we have been

talking about and dreaming about is 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,” says Sue Hume.

John Laurenson says the progress is

impressive.

“We went through the site recently and

it was actually a little emotional to stand

in what will be our new school for the first

time - it signals the end of all the hard times

the earthquakes brought. Already you can

see this will be a very well-resourced and

impressive campus.”

The campus is due to open in Term

Two of 2019. It will be the first time in

New Zealand’s modern history that two

well established and successful single sex

schools are being rebuilt side by side. Both

schools will retain their single sex identity,

providing learning tailored to boys and

girls and continuing to develop their

unique values.

John Laurenson says the move has

enabled the schools to offer students more.

“Because we’re building together, we’ve

been able to build bigger and better

facilities.”

Sue Hume says being side by side will also

enable better educational opportunities.

“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, and sports competitions.

This move will increase the opportunities

we can offer our students – both in and out

of the classroom.”

campus go to www.newcampus.nz

mitre 10 mega ferrymead

lend a helping hand

A MASSIVE clean-up of the Lyttelton Anglican Cemetery

has left it looking a lot smarter. Ten team members

from Mitre 10 MEGA Ferrymead spent hours weeding,

cutting, pruning and mowing as part of a community

initiative called Helping Hands. Launched to mark the

10th Anniversary of Mitre 10 MEGA Ferrymead, the store

is selecting 10 applicants whom staff will help with their

project. They can be from individual and/or community

groups and have a project that can be completed

within 10 hours with the help of 10 team members.

The Canterbury St cemetery was the first project to

receive help. It’s where the graveyard scenes from Peter

Jackson’s The Frighteners were filmed and has become

overgrown in recent years. Mitre 10 MEGA Ferrymead

spokeswoman Leah Knauf said the team from the store’s

garden centre worked from 8am through to almost

6pm at the cemetery. “It was a mammoth task, but

we got there and did as much as we could,” she said.

“It was cold to begin with but once we got under way

it was fine. Everyone was hypedup about the whole

project beforehand and by the time we got to the end

everyone was just ecstatic with the amount of work we

actually did. We could see the improvement we’d made.”

Ms Knauf said people were welcome to apply in store

or email marketing.ferrymead@mitre10.co.nz to

become part of the Helping Hands initiative.

Mitre 10 MEGA Ferrymead was supported by Kiwicare

which provided moss and weed killer and the city

council which helped with disposal of the weeds.

T

he firs time I woke up with a cold nose in my brand

new home, I wa shocked. How could this be? The

cool, calm, collected one and I had planned for our

home to be we l insulated against Canterbury’s

cold winters. Turns out, not we l enough. We’d

even assured a we l-meaning friend we had ample

insulation (yes, Duncan, you were right). I’ve worked out where we

fe l short in hindsight. Our home was designed by highly respected

Christchurch architect the late Peter Beaven, for a magic little

Port Hi l site, where he planned to live in with his wife Lesley.

Sadly Peter died before realising his plans. We bough them and

employed Archology in Sydney, where we were living at the time, to

prepare the construction drawings and specifications. Compared to

Australia, the R values for insulation would have looked high. Our

talented young builder, Sam McCarthy, would never have queried

the levels because they were standard practice around town. So it

wasn’t until we were living in the house and I consulted Council’s

eco design advisor Julie Villard about how we could warm it up that

we discovered, while we unwittingly thought we had exceeded New

Zealand standard, we had merely met Code. And that ain’t going to

cut it in our climate.

Fortunately Julie had plenty of ideas on how we could improve

the situation and we have easy access to our underfloor to top-up

the insulation. Julie Vi lard, an architect from France, is on a mission

to transform building best practice here and you can read abou the

groundbreaking ideas she’s applied to her own brand new build on

page 20.

I’ve shared the highs and lows of building with the other home

builders and renovators I interviewed and, like Diane (page 36), would

relish doing it again. I wa struck by how a l the home owner said

wha they most valued was the ability of their designer or builder to

“rea ly listen” to their wants and needs. I was also impressed by how

much Christchurch people love a good garage! We’ve got some ideas

for some top of their class cars to complement yours on page 81 and

how to quickly establish a lawn on page 72.

We review a l the lates trends in everyone’s favourite room –

the kitchen (page 48), and share an easy yet impressive recipe for

entertaining friends in your fabulous new home on page 77.

I hope Peter Beaven would be pleased with how the cool, calm,

co lected one and I realised his dream. Go chase yours people!

Gaynor

Speaking to the NZ Institute of Architects about ‘bespoke

architecture’ being a ‘minority pursuit’ not long before his death

Peter said “I am going to try to prove that it’s possible to build

modestly and cheaply with a little house for ourselves. It’s going to

be sustainable and it’s going to be beautiful and it’s going to be just

cheap – no more than an ordinary spec house. I’ l prove that it can

be done, and it might be the las thing I prove.”
