Women

‘drugged

and

sexually

assaulted’

at city

restaurant

• By Sophie Cornish

TWO WOMEN say they were

drugged and sexually assaulted

at a central city restaurant.

Police are waiting for forensic

results and have spoken to “a

number of people of interest,”

said Detective Senior Sergeant

Scott Anderson yesterday.

He said the two women had

laid complaints with the police

last month.

Detective Senior Sergeant

Anderson said the women had

been socialising and drinking

at Mama Hooch in Colombo St,

prior to being “taken to another

location.”

He would not disclose the

location.

But The Star has learned that

it was at a restaurant which had

closed for the evening.

Detective Senior Sergeant

Anderson said the two women

knew each other.

“Part of their complaint is that

they were drugged,” he said.

He said the offending was “at

the higher end of the scale.”

He wouldn’t be drawn

on further details of the

investigation, other than it was

“ongoing.”

go overseas on a study-related trip.

Bu the university’s dean of

“I can’t comment

told The Star

yesterday.

The Star has

It is understood it is no the

The Star has been told it is a

The Star sent a number of questions

to Canterbury University

yesterday but none would be answered.

Said Canterbury University

spokeswoman Margaret Agnew:

“UC cannot respond to allegations

that are before the police.”

She referred the questions

back to Dr Cheer. Her phone was

turned off.

Police would also not comment

on the matter.

Megan gets over another hurdle

The Star has been

following the Hore

family’s bid to get

their daughter Megan

to Disneyland Paris.

Julia Evans reports on

her last chemotherapy

session

TOMORROW will be a big day

for Megan Hore.

The plucky 18-year-old will

finally be home after finishing

her sixth and final round of

chemotherapy at Christchurch

Hospital, on Monday, to treat

the bone cancer which she

has been battling for the last

year.

“She’s finished her

chemotherapy and is on hyper

hydration for the rest of the week

to flush it out, they’re saying

we’ll be out of here on Friday,”

Megan’s mother Marilyn said.

When visited by The Star on

Tuesday, Megan said physically

she felt fine.

“But mentally, I feel bleh.”

Megan is the daughter of wellknown

blind organist Richard

Hore who busks at Countdown

in the Bush Inn Centre to raise

money to send her Disneyland

Paris.

The teenager has spent the majority

of a year in the children’s

haematology oncology centre at

the hospital.

“She’s holding up okay, but

reality has really hit home. We’re

finished treatment, now we’re

into the recovery phase,” Mrs

Hore said.

made a bucket list to go to every

Disneyland theme park on the

planet.

They were set to go to Disneyland

Paris before Megan received

her cancer diagnosis and they

had to cancel their flights.

Air New Zealand held the

money and in 23 days the family

is using it to go to Hong Kong

Disneyland. Megan was only

granted special leave from doctors

to be out of the country for

four days.

Also on her bucket list is going

to Oamaru to see penguins,

Hanmer Springs to visit The Lolly

Pot store to stock up on candy,

having a functioning body and

enrolling at Canterbury University

to study English.

“I missed out on university

entrance by one credit,” Megan

said. “I want to email them and

say can you just let me in, I’ve

had cancer.”

When back from Asia,

Megan will be back in hospital

for testing to see if the

treatment has done the trick.

Megan will have to undergo

scans and tests every three months

to check for cancer for the next

five years. If cells are found, her

diagnosis will become terminal.

The family are remaining

positive.

“We’re not ready to be a threecog

unit, we’re better with four

cogs,” Mrs Hore said.

Mrs Hore said at this stage

doctors had indicated it would

be a “good result.”

The Star’s article on the cancer

battle shared widely on social

media, and a Givealittle page

set up to help the family raise

money, has been boosted to more

than $10,000.

Disney on Ice hosted the Hore

family at a show at Horncastle

Artist donates paintings

• By Julia Evans

ARTIST Rangi Downes says he

could paint Mickey Mouse in

his sleep.

The 77-year-old has painted

the Disney icon more than 70

times on a mission to brighten

the lives of children suffering

from cancer throughout the

South Island.

Now he is going to help blind

organist Richard Hore and his

family get to Disneyland Paris

with daughter Megan, who is

undergoing chemotherapy for

cancer, by donating four paintings.

“I was reading your article in

The Star about Megan Hore and

I knew I could help,” he said.

The four paintings will be

finished tomorrow.

“I’ve even drawn up a couple

of new ones that I’ve never

painted before so it will be interesting

to see how those turn

out,” Downes said.

Megan’s mother Marilyn Hore

said the donation was “amazing”

news for her Disney-fanatic

daughter.

It is planned three paintings

will be auctioned off to raise

money.

TOP BLOKE: Redwood artist Rangi Downes with an example

of the art work he will donate to the Hore family.

The Star has approached

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern,

former All Blacks great Richie

McCaw and Commonwealth

Games gold medal shot-putter

Tom Walsh to sign them.

Megan met Walsh following

his Commonwealth Games win

last year.

“I absolutely fan-girled. I got

to wear his medals and hold his

shot put,” she said.

The fourth painting will be

kept by the Hore family.

Downes said he wanted to

help the family because he knew

battling cancer was expensive.

“It’s nice to be helping someone

out who wants to live.”

His art is hanging up in 51

ONE OF the city’s largest pump

The city council is expected to

could have it installed

at Main Pumps within

10 to 12 months,’’ said

city council water supply

programme manager Helen

Beaumont.

The station takes water from

six wells and feeds about 11

per cent of the central zone,

which provides water to about

185,000 people. The city council

is investigating bringing in UV

treatment at “a number” of pump

stations around the city, which

can’t be secured otherwise.

“We will not have a timeline

for implementation until we have

completed concept designs and

estimated the costs for the plant

required at each pump station,”

Ms Beaumont said. A report is

expected in October.

Ms Beaumont said the city

council has sufficient funds to

complete the work that has been

“Further work needs

to be done before we can

month.

The latest, Thompsons

pump station, was stopped on

Tuesday.

But Ms Beaumont said it would

only be possible during low water

demand, such as winter, so water

conservation would be needed

through summer.

Almost all of the city’s water

supply was chlorinated in March

after the city council voted for

12 months of chlorination,

while unsecure well heads were

repaired in January.

Ms Beaumont said the timeline

was “challenging”, but it remains

the target.

Cases of animal abuse on the

SPCA Canterbury is investigating a video shared

on social media of what appears to be a cat being

tortured and killed by teenagers. Sophie Cornish spoke

to SPCA staff about how its investigations work

EMACIATED animals, dogs

being beaten and stabbed,

illegal trapping and a lack of

vet treatment for serious health

issues.

These are the common issues

faced by five SPCA Canterbury

inspectors on a daily basis.

They cover an area that includes

the city, North Canterbury

to the Hurunui

River, as well as

Hanmer Springs

across to the West

Coast and as far

south as Ashburton

and the

Rangitata River.

Barry

Helem

There are currently

20 active

investigations

and “the cases are

piling up,” says SPCA southern

region general manager Barry

Helem.

One case was reported in

The Star earlier this month, in

which two youths were accused

of torturing and killing a cat.

Videos of the incident were put

on social media then sent to

SPCA Canterbury.

While it may not have been a

deliberate act, SPCA Canterbury

is investigating and it could take

three months or more for an

outcome to be decided.

Mr Helem believes posttraumatic

stress disorder

after the earthquakes and

other mental health issues has

resulted in an increase in calls

to the SPCA. A spike in animal

welfare complaints about three

years after the earthquakes also

correlated with what police and

domestic violence groups like

Women’s Refuge New Zealand

experienced.

“It’s about the three-year

mark where we see these social

concerns really come out in the

community,” said Mr Helem.

However, the number continues

to increase. From 2016-2017,

there was a 20 per cent increase

in both the number of calls and

the animals cared for at SPCA

Canterbury.

Its senior inspector Sam Cairns

to eat and in extreme pain and distress, His former owner

has been prosecuted.

said “mental health hoarding” is

a growing problem.

“It’s not unusual for people to

have 200 rabbits in their backyard,

it’s very common and very

problematic . . . it’s really difficult

because the people are suffering

as well.”

An investigation will usually

begin with a phone call from a

member of the public, which is

then screened and vetted.

Often staff will attend straight

away and the unpredictability of

the situation can be “quite fullon”

for investigators, said Miss

Cairns.

“Initially, it’s like an ambulance

scene. We will deal with the

suffering first . . . we take care

of the animal and its needs and

mitigate all those problems.”

Miss Cairns and other

inspectors will then collate

information to form a case.

This may include interviewing

witnesses, vet reports, lab and

autopsy results and compiling

There are 39 SPCA centres

in NZ with 45,000 animals

coming through the

centres each year.

•45,300 animals were

helped by SPCA centres

across the country last year.

photos. The file will then go

through an internal review

system before a course of action

can be taken.

“Because we are using charity

money, we don’t want to go

to prosecution and not win it

because it costs a lot,” said Mr

Helem.

“It’s pretty robust what we are

putting forward. We have to be

confident it is going to be a successful

prosecution at the end of

that,” said Miss Cairns.

Both the SPCA and police can

prosecute under the Animal

Welfare Act 1999, and often work

together, especially with violent

offenders.

“Often we will turn up and it

is the same sort of clientele that

the police deal with. We might

do a background check or know

from the caller that the person

is violent. Sometimes we have

no idea, it depends on a caseby-case

basis,” said Miss Cairns.

For the most part, Mr Helem

says a large number of complaints

result in verbal advice.

Often education letters will

be sent out, which include the

Codes of Welfare under the

Act.

In more

cases,

Volunteers,

donations and new

owners are needed to

help with the increasing

workload.

Breathing life into the city’s oldest

Heritage buildings

around the city and

Banks Peninsula

are getting a new

lease of life as

the city council

starts investigating

potential uses. Julia

Evans reports

THE ROBERT McDougall Art

Gallery will once again have

work hanging on its walls as it

gets a new lease of life.

Plans to carry out further work

on the gallery to make it weather

tight, while exploring future

uses, have been confirmed by the

city council.

It will investigate the option

of carrying out further repair

and strengthening work so the

building can be leased for the

display of art, decorative art and

crafts and supporting activities.

“We remain committed to

making the most of this lovely

gallery building tucked away

in the Botanic Gardens,” city

council citizens and community

principal adviser Brent Smith

said.

It is part of a wider public

call by the city council to seek

future uses for heritage buildings

around the city.

The city council has confirmed

it is also investigating the

potential use of the Old

Municipal Chambers, Thomas

Edmonds Band Rotunda and

Thomas Edmonds Pavilion.

It will explore the viability

of short-listed expressions of

interest for the buildings and

carry out several investigations

into possible future uses.

“We are re-looking at one of

the buildings, the Old Municipal

Chambers, and plan to carry out

a further (expression of interest)

to collect additional information

from interested parties,” Mr

Smith said.

“We are also investigating

options to repair, strengthen and

upgrade the building ourselves,

so that we can potentially lease

all, or part, of the site, or operate

the building ourselves as we did

pre-earthquake.”

Mr Smith said the Thomas

Edmonds Band Rotunda must

be reconstructed and restored to

function as a stage for musical

performances.

“When it comes to the

pavilion, we hope that the use

of the building will complement

activities at the rotunda.”

WORK: The Thomas Edmonds band rotunda and pavilion

will also be restored.

Staff will report back to the city

council with recommendations

for each building before the end

of the year.

The city council has completed

a separate application process to

explore funding and future use

options for 13 heritage buildings.

City council general manager

citizens and community Mary

Richard said Chokebore Lodge at

Riccarton Racecourse, Penfold’s

Cob Cottage, Little River Railway

Goods Shed, Kapuatohe Dwelling

and Kapuatohe Cottage in Belfast,

Spreydon’s Coronation Hall, and

Kukupa Hostel in Pigeon Bay

have received funding in the Long

Term Plan.

“Chokebore Lodge will be for

residential, Penfold’s Cob Cottage

is being restored for education

purposes. The Little River Railway

Goods Shed will be restored

as a storage shed,” she said.

Ms Richardson said the future

use of Kapuatohe Dwelling, Kapuatohe

Cottage, Coronation Hall

and Kukupa Hostel is yet to be

determined.

But the city council will be

consulting on whether they will

be for commercial or community

use.

Ms Richardson said the other

heritage buildings, which did not

yet have funding set aside, would

continue to be cared for by the

city council.

The other buildings will

be maintained to stop further

deterioration until funding is

available in the Long Term Plan

for restoration.”

STOLEN URNS belonging to a

widow were part of a $100,000

antique haul seized in a police

sting last week.

Retired Woolston resident Jill

Walker made a plea in The Star

last month for the return of the

copper urns that were restored

by her late husband of 43 years,

Barry Walker.

Police executed a search warrant

at an address on Aynsley

Tce, St Martins,

last week. A

29-year-old-man

and a 44-yearold

woman were

charged with

burglary and

Jill Walker receiving stolen

property.

On Tuesday, the two alleged

offenders entered no plea in the

district court and will appear

again on September 11.

Other items recovered include

outdoor ornamental pots,

statues, street lamps, wrought

iron gates, and other antiques,

police said.

Detective Karen Simmons

said the alleged burglars targeted

antiques and the items

were stolen around Beckenham,

Opawa, Somerfield and

Woolston.

Said Detective Simmons: “To

be able to return the urns to the

victim and her family is absolutely

wonderful.

“We do still have a number

of items that we haven’t identified

an owner for, and we’d

obviously like to get these back

where they belong.”

Mrs Walker said the copper

urns were one of the few memories

left of Mr Walker, who

passed away nine years ago. She

was delighted that the items

were found.

“It’s just wonderful news,”

Mrs Walker said.

She thanked everyone who

after her appeal for help.

“I’m sure the newspaper article

know about it, it makes it hard

to get rid of it doesn’t it?”

Mrs Walker now plans to

plant two camellia plants called

‘donation’ in the urns because

her husband was an organ

“Once they are full of dirt

they will be much harder [to

‘Dad jokes’ keep traffic moving at school

Caretaker’s

humour solves

parking woes

• By Sarla Donovan

A QUIRKY initiative to keep

traffic moving outside Mt

Pleasant School has made a huge

difference.

Like many schools, there were

parking issues at drop-off and

pick-up times created by people

leaving their vehicles and not

parking correctly.

So caretaker Simon Hillyer

came up with a novel idea.

He made humorous signs,

laminated them and put them up

on the 2min loading zone sign

outside the school.

The signs get rotated every

week, with the Crusaders, Bart

Simpson, Star Wars and Top Gun

providing inspiration.

Along with Mr Hillyer’s own

dad-joke sensibilities.

It’s a non-confrontational approach

which seems to have hit

the spot.

School office manager Carolyn

Wright said people eagerly

awaited the next instalment.

The pressure’s on him now to

come up with the new stuff,” she

said.

Last week the school bell

played Highway to the Danger

Zone to co-ordinate with the Top

Gun-themed signs.

Mr Hillyer said results had

exceeded expectations.

generally people are heaps better

he said.

“It seems to have got the kids

talking about it as well. They

don’t quite understand what

the sign means sometimes, like

the Bison dad joke, so they start

chatting to mum or dad about

it.”

Where does he get his inspiration

from?

Fire rages, homes at risk

Yukon race winners return home

Christchurch

policewoman Wendy

Riach and her

partner, engineer

Ian Huntsman, have

returned from the

Alaskan wilderness

after completing –

and winning – the

Yukon 1000. It’s

the world’s longest

canoe race. The

couple tell reporter

Sarla Donovan how

they beat 20 other

contenders

Tell me about the Yukon – is

it a fast-flowing river?

The river usually flows at

7km/h. However, this year it was

at a very low flow. According

to the locals, this was due to it

being an inordinately cold early

summer with much less snow

melt than usual. We could tell

after the first day of racing that

our times were going to be slow

in comparison to earlier years as

the river was flowing 1-2km/h

slower than in 2014 when we last

raced. Unfortunately this meant

no new race records for canoes

or kayaks this year.

Alaska has this legendary

quality, a final-frontier

mystique. How did it feel to be

out there in the wilderness?

It’s big, it seems infinite, there

are very few roads, almost no

sign of human occupation, it

really does belong to the wild

animals who live there. We felt

like trespassers, we watched

our step when we were ashore

and attempted to leave no trace

behind.

Does it feel different to NZ?

Unforgiving, bigger and the

climate is different. The weather

is completely unpredictable, the

skies are very busy with active

clouds, you can never tell when

the next thunderstorm will be or

when the sun will emerge and it

will be instantly over 35 deg C.

You were out for six days and

WHITE NIGHTS: Ian Huntsman gets ready to make camp just before midnight on the

fourth day. Huntsman and Wendy Riach only slept for about four hours each night during

the Yukon 1000 race in Canada.

14 hours – could you describe a

typical day?

The alarm in our tent goes off

at 4am. It’s light outside but cold,

like say 7.30am in Christchurch

at the moment. It takes us an

hour to pack up our sleeping

bags and tent, cook porridge and

hot chocolate, sort out our race

food for 17-18 hours of paddling,

put our paddling gear back on

and launch the kayak. About

20min later we eat porridge

while sitting in the current of

the river. Then it’s continuous

paddling with a few 5min stops

to eat heavy, fatty foods like

salami and cheese. Salami was

eaten in the morning, say about

9am at our most sleepy time

of the day. It has a sharp taste

and keeps you awake. Cheese

was eaten in the mid to late

afternoon to keep paddling

strength up until dinner time.

To be competitive, we had to

paddle each day until between

10pm and 11pm each night. We

found after the first day that we

were too exhausted to cook and

eat properly at 11pm so we made

a decision to stop every night

at around 8pm and go ashore

for 15min to cook dinner. This

was the only time we got out of

the kayak during the 18-hour

days. We boiled enough water

for our dinner and another hot

drink in the Thermos. Once

our dehydrated Backcountry

meals were prepared, we resealed

the foil bags and jumped back

into the kayak. We ate dinner

sitting in the kayak with the

current of the river still taking us

forward. This cooking and eating

method limited the amount

of bear

precautions

we needed

to complete

when we

finally came

ashore at

night. When

we got

ashore, we

all our

night. It was never dark enough

at night to use a head torch. On

our last night, the sun shone into

our tent at 11.15pm and turned it

into a sauna for a few minutes.

Did you see any other people

during the race?

For the first nine hours, we

were swapping leads with a very

talented canoe called Team

Hobos.

Paddling 1609km in six days, 14hr 55min

Fire rages, homes at risk

•From page 14

They were following us down a

tricky section called the ‘30 mile’

until they got stuck on a sandbar.

We didn’t see them again until

we welcomed them over the

finish line. We had a great time

catching up at the Yukon River

Camp and later at Fairbanks

with the other crews after they

finished. For the remainder of

the race we did not see anyone,

except for a brief stop at the

Alaskan border village of Eagle.

How were the bears and bugs?

We saw one brown bear

(grizzly) just downstream of

Dawson City early on our fourth

day. The bear was very shy and

was on an island in the river;

he headed back into the forest

when he saw us paddle by. Other

animal highlights included

seeing a lynx, lots of beaver and

many moose with their calves as

well as a rare wolverine on the

last day. The bugs were largely

insignificant, we were up too

early and making camp too late

for them to bother us.

Do you get sore arms/hands –

where did it hurt?

We hadn’t recovered from

racing the Yukon River Quest

three weeks before. This had the

unpleasant effect of our injuries

from the earlier race resurfacing

on days one and two, such as

blisters on our hands. Inflamed

tendon attachments, particularly

in the hamstring area, were

a real problem. We didn’t

take any anti-inflammatory

medications as our previous

experience had proven these to

be sleep-inducing. I think over

the course of the race, Ian and I

took two Panadol tablets each for

pain relief. We used antiseptic,

antibacterial, anti-fungal creams

and barrier creams to keep

general infections and trench

foot at bay. At times we were in

agony, but we were always able to

change something, like swapping

seat cushions, back rests, or foot

rests to find a way of reducing

or eliminating the cause of the

injury.

OVERNIGHT: Wendy Riach and Ian Huntsman make their last camp 200km from the

finish in Alaska at 11.30pm.

We also carried a variety of

wrist braces which we used when

our arms became fatigued. Ian

also downsized his paddle blade

to protect his wrists.

Were there any ‘OMG!’

moments?

On day five, we spent two

and a half hours paddling with

less than 10m visibility due

to wildfire smoke. There was

very little wind in the river at

that point, we had seen the fire

burning on the banks of the river

but the smoke lay thick on the

water for a lot further than we

anticipated.

It was rather frightening, as

the smoke was thick and acrid

and it seemed to go on forever.

Eventually a strong wind came

up and blew the smoke away and

we popped out the other side.

I think it was compulsory

to stop and sleep for six

hours – would you just pull

up at a likely looking spot

on the riverbank?

We always looked forward to

camping for the night, the sky

would soften to a golden colour,

the air temperature cooled down

a bit and the wind was generally

a bit calmer. It was a great time

of the day. We would choose a

spot (often on a small island)

on sand or gravel at least 10m

distant from any bush from

which a bear might appear.

We checked for animal

tracks and scat as soon as we

got ashore. We didn’t find

fresh bear prints at any of our

campsites and always had a

good night sleep. We didn’t

light any fires and went to sleep

as soon as possible. We had a

roomy lightweight tent that was

completely bug-proof and had

bear-spray cans in the tent with

us as well as wearing bear bells

when on land.

The two of you must get along

pretty well. What’s the secret?

It takes a lot of energy to

win an expedition race such as

this one. We both had really

low points due to injuries

(luckily at different times)

which recurred and sleepiness

as a result of pain. Empathy

and consideration are key

elements coupled with absolute

determination to win. Without

that determination, it would

be too easy to give in to the

pain and discomfort. You also

need almost flawless paddling

technique to keep the paddle

strokes ticking over at maximum

efficiency without irreversibly

damaging tendons and muscles.

How did you celebrate the

win?

We hung out with the race

organisers, Jon and Harry,

at the Dalton Bridge and

welcomed the next three kayaks

and canoes across the finish

line. We all stayed together

and talked for days about our

shared experiences. All are

incredibly talented people

and we have forged strong

friendships through our shared

experiences. I can’t think of a

better way to celebrate.

Can you describe your

preparation?

Planning and preparation

took about nine months. Most

of it was boring stuff such as

booking leave from work, flights,

accommodation, transfers

etc. We hired our kayak many

months in advance and fitted it

out three days before the race

with refurbished seats, footrests

and backrests, most of which we

had brought from New Zealand.

Without our custom fit-out of

the kayak, we simply would not

have been able to finish the race.

We took all our dehydrated

meals from New Zealand as we

believe Backcountry is the best.

We took much more warm gear

this time, as four years ago I

suffered badly from extreme cold

in the later stages of the race.

That didn’t happen this year.

We also packed more calories in

our 18-hour race bags which we

sourced from supermarkets in

the Yukon. We ate about 4000

calories per day each.

I guess all your equipment is

vital but was there any gear you

couldn’t do without?

Inflatable seat pads are the big

winner. The seat pads protect

your hamstrings and without

these we would have been out of

the race on day two.

How did you get into these

long-distance races?

A race called the Wild

Descent, which occurred in

2013 and 2104, it was four days

long and we raced the length

of the Clutha River in double

kayaks from Wanaka to the

Catlins.

What’s your next adventure?

We are team kayakers for a

multisport race at Queenstown

this weekend called the Peak

To Peak. Luckily the kayaking

section is only about 7km long so

we might just manage it.

Hillmorton High School

Inspiring academic

excellence, leadership,

and a love of learning

The Star

Diversity key

to school’s

character

Kia ora koutou, talofa lava,

warm greetings to you all.

What makes each school unique?

International Research (PISA) has

shown that there is more difference

in terms of academic results within

schools, than across schools,

and John Hattie’s

research tells us that

the largest predictor

of academic success

is the student and

his/her family. This

means that at a

school level we must

employ the very best

teachers, as they also

make a difference.

We are fortunate

at Hillmorton High

School to have highly

skilled teachers who

are able to extend

student learning, no

Ann

Brokenshire

matter where the student’s current

learning is at. If we had “added

value” measures across schools

rather than “league tables” I feel

confident these would show that

our students’ learning is indeed

accelerated.

So, what else about Hillmorton

High School is unique? We are

a diverse community in a good

number of ways with enough

difference to ensure students mix

on a daily basis with students

who come from very different

backgrounds to their own.

Hillmorton High School also has

a large number of students with

serious multiple disabilities. Most

of these young people learn within

our Upland Unit but many have

one or two mainstream classes

too. They teach our

students to be kind and

gentle.

What qualities and

skills do our students

develop when learning

in this environment?

We asked our senior

council members this

last year. They told us

that the most important

quality they develop in

our unique environment

is “openness”. And in

terms of skills? Their

interpersonal skills are

outstanding. These two

things – having well developed

interpersonal skills, and being open

to learning from and with a range

of people different to oneself – are

what makes our students highly

employable and very successful in

their chosen futures.

This is what makes Hillmorton High

School unique. We are very proud

of our students!

Developing leadership skills

Throughout school, there are many opportunities for

leadership development.

One that is now part of our calendar is the Limitless

Conference, which focuses on developing young people

in Year 10. Twelve of our students recently attended this

conference, taking part in workshops and presentations

over the three days it ran.

The event, organised by Christchurch young person

April McLennan, aims, the website states, “to empower

students to hold greater confidence and awareness

in their unique strengths, values and passions –

understanding more of who they are and what they

bring, and how this may translate to work with purpose

that addresses some of the most significant challenges

our communities and world face.”

We look forward to our students walking tall and serving

in leadership roles both at school and beyond.

Opinion

•If you want to ask Ms Dalziel a

question, email mayor@ccc.govt.nz. Put

Reader’s Question in the subject line

I WAS walking through town

the other day and a couple of

workmen saw me approaching.

“Here comes the mayor,” one

said. “You’d better be working

hard,” I replied with a smile.

“We’re helping fix your city,”

they said, so I stopped and

thanked them.

“So what are you doing about

the chlorine in our water then,”

was their question. I explained

we would have been ordered

to chlorinate the water if we

hadn’t agreed to do so, and

at that point, we would have

lost control of all the decisionmaking

from then on. But

what are we doing and what

about the water bottling plant

at Belfast – what does that have

to do with it?

It’s interesting how little

fact filters through social

media channels these days. I

explained that the city council

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

The straight shooters

is putting chlorine in at the

pump stations, so for the

pumps where all the well-heads

are above ground, or able to be

isolated, no chlorine is going

into the water supply at all. We

are also planning to put UV

treatment into the mix which

will help.

We then talked about the

water bottling plant at Belfast.

I explained it is Environment

Canterbury that controls resource

consents for water take,

Kia ora and welcome to this edition of the SYD

Retail, Industry, Hospitality and Arts all come together

in the Sydenham Quarter to support each other for the

betterment of Sydenham. Sydenham has a proud history

and is experiencing a wonderful renaissance, with new

businesses and residential developments. SYDM Quarter

is thrilled to welcome some awesome new businesses

and invite you to check out their profiles on our website

www.sydm.co.nz – be sure to pay them a visit next

time you are in our neighbourhood!

Last month we were delighted to host our first “Pay as

You Feel” community dinner initiated by SYDM Quarter

Engagement Coordinator, Ailey Ong.

Food was provided for this event

by local greengrocers, sustainable

artisan producers and catering

businesses, before it “became

waste” and went to Canterbury

landfills. This was a wonderful night

of community togetherness and

we are proud to have brought this

to Sydenham. Proceeds from this

night will be donated to Sydenham

Heritage Trust

who are endearing

to re build on the

Heritage site a

SYDM Community

venue and to

house the old

church relics and

to conserve this

part of Sydenham

history.

Grateful thanks to the volunteers from Canterbury and

businesses who made this event so successful – Alan Wall,

Briarlee Tutuaha, Jesse Stephens, Jazmine Cooper, Jacqui,

Jennifer & Olivia Holanda, Kenny Abass, Teresa, William &

Andrew Lindsay, Shane Victor, Marine Mathieu and Verna

Curwood. Thanks also to our business support, generously

provided by Raeward Fresh Harewood, Parsley and Sage

Corporate and Private Catering and Mori Mori Izakaya

Restaurant.

SYDM Quarter’s next “Pay As You Feel” Dinner will be

Hosted by Raeward Fresh Harewood, on Wednesday 29th

August. Numbers will be limited, so make sure you book your

place on our Facebook page @SYDM.QTR. Proceeds from this

will go towards Sydenham Heritage Trust.

Our August Networking

was hosted by Manscape

in Sandyford Street.

This unique Grooming

Salon even has a ‘Man

Cave’ in which to wait

for your appointment

and, guys, it’s even set

up so you can take your

son or nephew in for a

haircut at the same time

as yours. Thank you

so much to our hosts –

Annika, Natalie, Marine,

Georgie and the talented

Manscape team.

SYDM Quarter holds

a monthly networking

event and in July, this was

hosted at The Fermentist.

In addition to our social

networking, we were

treated to delicious food

platters provided by The

Fermentist with boutique

beers and ciders for us to

enjoy. Kirsten, Simon and

Jo looked after us well &

gave us all an informative

tour through the brewery.

Check them out at 380

Explorations and discovery in

ADVeRTORIAL

Fermentation

M Quarter Newsletter!

Up coming events coming up in Sydenham

The Fermentist is a microbrewery, taproom and

café in Sydenham.

With beer at its roots and sustainability in its

heart, the Fermentist team look at their place in

the world a bit differently. There’s no denying that

making beer uses a lot of water and energy but

The Fermentist is determined to use its resources

more sustainably.

Their mission is to bring people together

over great beers and food, trying new things

and discovering how they can make a positive

environmental difference through the way they

work.

Living up to its name, The Fermentist is about

explorations and discovery in fermentation. On

tap you’ll find a core selection of beers, cider and

kombucha, with additional seasonal beers being

introduced.

There’s an easy-drinking Kiwi Pale Ale, made

with Taiheke, Nelson Sauvin and Motueka hops - a

great beer for all occasions. For something a little

bit sour, try the Berliner Weisse - drink it as is, or

with a shot of raspberry fruit syrup as they do in

Berlin. There’s also a Red Ale, an American amber

ale style beer with a Kiwi twist, and a Dry Cider

full of character, made from 100% New Zealand

apple juice. The first seasonal beer has just been

released on tap, an American Brown Ale, and in

the fermenters two more seasonal beers are doing

their business. A Czech Pilsner will be on tap early

September and a dark larger mid-October.

In the taproom you’ll find a flavoursome menu

designed for sharing, using seasonal vegetables

from their own brewery garden as well as kimchi,

sauerkraut and fermented pickles. They source

seasonal food from local producers, and preserve

and ferment as much as possible to limit food

waste.

To reduce their carbon footprint, The Fermentist

use solar panels for a proportion of electricity

usage and hot water heating. They also compost

waste, harvest rain water, and focus on recycling

to reduce waste going to landfill. They have

sourced ethical products, such as staff uniforms

and toilet paper. You might see The Fermentist’s

electric hybrid making deliveries around town.

Take a Fermentist brew home with you (and

reduce packaging) by bringing in your own vessel

to the fill your own taps, or purchase a reusable

Fermentist glass 1 litre bottle.

You can also find The Fermentist brews around

town at Casa Publica, Coasters, The Carlton,

The Bog, Pomeroy’s, Fox and Ferret Shirley, Fox

and Ferret Riccarton, Tavern Harewood, Coalgate

Tavern, South Bar at Christchurch Airport, and

Amazonita.

Visit The Fermentist at 380 Colombo Street,

Sydenham, Christchurch.

– in addition to our monthly networking events, we will have a

TWO breakfast hosted by SYDM Quarter for businesses to meet

develop a forum to address business condition issues. We have

received a request from Dr Duncan Webb, he would like to also

attend this Business breakfast series on the 27th August. The

next breakfast will be on 1st of October, 2018. We hope that all

businesses will see the value of this and will attend.

– we are working on a concept to activate vacant land within

Sydenham as an Artisan Corner. We are running a Facebook

poll on Artisan Corner to gauge community support – please

head to our Facebook page @SYDM.QTR to share your views

and stay tuned for upcoming events!

On September 1, 2018 we will be having a “community day” to

view the “Artisan Corner” plan and Sydenham businesses will

provide a fun filled day full of activities. The day will kick off

at 9am to 10am with a Pay As You Feel “Gourmet food-box”,

proceeds will go to Sydenham Heritage Trust.

The drawing room will have workshops.

Sydenham Heritage Trust will run short guided historical walks

(1 hour) starting from 11am around a small part of Sydenham,

paying homage to the past using photos and heritage “objects”

as to what it look like then and what is in its places now.

Great beers,

great food

We are all about explorations

and discovery in fermentation,

and we want to push ourselves and

challenge perceptions about what this can mean.

• Straightforward flavoursome menu • Right sized portions • Friendly staff

There are cafe’s and restaurant and retailers along Colombo

Street. Plenty to see, visit and discover when you come. For

more information and details please go to SYDM Quarter

Develop a taste for

tangy tamarillo

• By Diana Noonan

TAMARILLO are a

favourite cool-season fruit,

maturing from March or

April, and well into winter.

Depending on variety

and pruning regimes,

they will even continue

to produce into early

December.

Three main varieties of

tamarillo are now available.

The reds, with their deep

purple-red skin and darkred

colouring around black

seeds, are especially sought

after for decorating dessert

dishes.

Amber varieties, with

a golden skin tinged with

a red blush, are said to be

the sweetest tamarillos,

although the fruit tends

to be smaller than those

of other varieties. Gold

tamarillos are large and

fleshy and are a little

sweeter than the reds.

The tamarillo is a

subtropical plant that is

frost-tender to -2 deg C.

Grown under cover, they

become susceptible to

sclerotinia rot.

This limits the areas

where the trees can be

planted although gardeners

in marginal areas can

hedge their bets by

planting close to a heatretaining

wall and under

the eaves of a house with a

sunny north-facing aspect.

Tamarillo seriously

resent wet feet so excellent

drainage is essential.

However, their shallow

roots also render the trees

susceptible to drought so

moisture must be provided

during summer.

The key to knowing

when to pick tamarillo is to

be familiar with the variety

you are growing and to

FLAVOUR: A well-tended tamarillo tree will

produce up to 20kg of fruit.

pick when the entire fruit

is the colour described on

the growing label.

If the stalk has begun to

turn yellow, and is slightly

loose where it meets the

fruit, this is another sign of

full ripeness.

Picked at this stage, the

fruit will keep for up to

two weeks in a fridge or

for a week in a bowl at

room temperature. If you

pick fruit when there is

still a ring of green around

the top (the stalk end),

the fruit won’t ripen to

sweetness and will remain

acidic.

Store tamarillo with

other fruit, such as apples,

to hasten ripening.

Tamarillo (skinned) can

be eaten raw as a dessert

or with breakfast cereal,

used in baking or to make

relishes, chutneys and

jams.

They can also be used to

make salsa, can be grilled

with garlic butter, and

used as a sauce for grilled

meats. The pulp (or the

entire fruit, peeled) can be

frozen.

Easy peeling is achieved

by placing the whole raw

fruits in a bowl of boiling

water.

Rinse them in cold

water, pierce with the tip of

a sharp knife, and the skins

will come away easily.

Singapore return in

premium economy

• By Kate Preece

THERE’S something

nice about being able to

jump a queue. It’s about as

satisfying as seeing those

bright orange ‘priority’

labels being attached to

your luggage.

Singapore Airlines is

bringing the A350-900

to Christchurch from

January and with it comes

the chance to have all

this and more – and we’re

not even talking about

business class.

THe A350 has 24

premium economy seats,

set out in a 2-4-2 row

configuration. On top of

special treatment, you

get a wider seat (49.5cm

versus economy’s 46cm),

can recline 10deg further

back than in the 187

economy seats, and have

your own reading light at

armrest level.

When we tested out the

A350, my favourite freebie

was the noise-cancelling

headphones. Ideal for

night flights and listening

to what dances across your

34cm HD LCD screen. As

for the PlayStation-esque

controller that navigates

the inflight KrisWorld

entertainment system …

you might want to ask

for help from a nearby

teenager.

If you plan ahead,

though, you can

download the Singapore

Airlines app, which will

enable you to preview

what programmes will be

available on your flight,

mark them as favourites

and, once onboard, pair

your own personal device

and use this to jumpstart

those movie credits.

If you are tall, it will be

easier for you to access the

overhead compartments

(the A350 is known for

its high ceiling) and you

will not feel hemmed in

by your fellow passengers.

Securing the front row

of premium economy

provides an impressive

and entertainment system. You may need a

teenager to guide you through it.

MENU: Before you leave Singapore you can

order your meal up to 24 hours before the flight.

amount of leg room.

For the more vertically

challenged, the wider seat

allows for catnapping –

that’s snoozing in a curled

up sort of fashion.

The food and beverage

lists are enticing and vary

well to cater to a range of

tastes.

You can start the day

with waffles for breakfast,

or get into the mood with

some dim sum. For the

uber-organised, ‘premium

economy book the cook’

means you can lock in

your main course up

to 24 hours before your

flight (note: not available

ex-Christchurch, but

certainly ex-Singapore).

Whatever choices you

make, you will soon

discover the service is

impeccable with this

airline – rivalling our very

own.

Big finals weekend on

UC showdown: Christ’s College v Chch Boys’ High

• By Gordon Findlater

IN TERMS of secondary school

be difficult to trump winning the

Maadi Cup.

However, Christ’s College

first XV captain and lock Sam

Darry says that will be the case

if his side can defeat bitter rivals

Christchurch Boys’ High School on

Saturday.

In March Darry was part of the

Christ’s eight that won the Maadi

Cup, the pinnacle of high school

rowing. Now he will captain

the first XV in their first UC

Championship final appearance

since 2001.

The way it’s come together

playing Boys’ High, I honestly

think it will be bigger. Rugby has

always been my No 1 sport and to

win in a final against Boys’ High

at their home ground would be

awesome,” said Darry.

“At the same time, the Maadi

victory was amazing because a lot

of hard work goes into that for one

race.” Christ’s last won the first XV

competition in 1996 when it had a

much different format. If they can

break the 22-year drought, Darry

will join an exclusive club of players

who have won the competition and

the Maadi Cup.

Christ’s set up the dream final

against CBHS after a nail-biting

24-23 semi-final win over St Bede’s

College at Upper. For Darry, it was

a case of getting the monkey off

their back after stumbling at the

semi-final stage last year and in

2016.

Now the attention is on CBHS.

When the two sides met in May,

Christ’s were defeated 16-32 on

their home turf. “Once we lost,

we wanted to get another crack at

them because we don’t think we put

our best foot forward in that game.

But here we are – we get another

chance so hopefully we can redeem

ourselves.”

The final will be Darry’s 52nd

appearance for the first XV – he

is the third Christ’s player in the

last 20 years to play more than 50

games. The others were Damian

McKenzie and Carl Manu.

The match kicks off at noon at

Pat Smith Trophy – Keas success in threes

• By Gordon Findlater

THE WORD brotherhood is

commonly used to describe the

culture inside sport teams with

a strong bond.

The Linwood Keas have taken

a literal approach to their brotherhood

this season. The premier

squad features two sets of three

brothers.

For Paul, Matthew and Erwin

Sauni, Sunday’s final against

the Hornby Panthers won’t be

new – they’ve won the big prize

together previously.

However, this year they are

joined by Thoren, Jiordan and

Domanyc Fidow-Kele. As if

going for a premiership title

with one set of a three brothers

wasn’t rare enough.

The Fidow-Keles come from a

league and union background.

Their father Tala Kele propped

for Canterbury and Marist

Albion in the 1980s and 1990s.

They grew up playing for Marist

before switching to league in

their teens.

Thoren and Jiordan have

played plenty of 13 and 15-

man code games together, but

it wasn’t until this year that

18-year-old Domanyc completed

the trio.

“Growing up watching them

alongside them. I finally got

the opportunity this year, I was

pretty proud to run out with

them,” said Domanyc.

For the Saunis, there is also

that feeling of pride with them

now in their third season together

at the Keas.

“It’s just a good feeling to

make it here with my brothers.

We grew up together and it’s

good to still be together playing

what we love,” said Matthew.

Both sets of brothers admit

they aren’t afraid to call each

other out when criticism is due.

in the final, while Carlton-

Redcliffs will meet Harewood in

The two top men’s sides have

met twice this season with

Marist winning 5-3 in June after

Harewood took out the first

encounter 4-3 in April.

Harewood have been the

dominant force in men’s hockey,

Perhaps it has even helped them

to achieve what they have in the

sport.

“If it wasn’t for them, I

wouldn’t have made it this far.

I’ve got to give credit to them

for the way they raised me and

roughed me up,” said Erwin.

The Fidow-Keles and Saunis

say it’s not just their bond that

has created the team’s family

vibe. “This whole club itself is

really family-orientated. A lot of

the boys have their kids playing

section five years in a row.

Harewood coach Matt Ling

had contributed to some high

Andrew Sherratt and midfielder

Ryan Cocking will be key to the

victory.

• By Jacob Page

THE LINWOOD Keas are

aiming to become the first team

since Eastern Suburbs in 1981

to win three consecutive grandfinals.

The Keas will go in to Sunday’s

Pat Smith Trophy final against

the Hornby Panthers at Rugby

League Park as favourites on

the verge of completing an

undefeated season.

Eastern achieved the threepeat

in 1981 after Papanui

dominated the 1970s by winning

seven titles in eight years

between 1971 and 1978.

Hornby last won the title in

2013.

The Keas blitzed the Northern

Bulldogs a fortnight ago to gwo

straight through to the final.

The Panthers have had to do

it the hard way, winning their

sudden-death semi-final 50-6 a

fortnight ago, before travelling

to Kaiapoi to beat the Bulldogs

16-6.

Panthers coach Jed Lawrie said

his team would not be overcome

by the occasion this time around

and believed they were playing

their best rugby league of the

season.

“I think we had our best

attacking game of the season

against Halswell and our best

the right time, with midfielder

and former Timaru product

Andrew Ross leading the way in

both attack and defence. After

four seasons in the premier

league it will be their first final.

Marist coach Josh Kumbaroff

said the team know they can

beat the defending champions,

having taken the Challenge

Shield off them in their June

defensive effort against the

Bulldogs,” Lawrie said.

He said James Baxendale’s

versatility would be crucial,

while in form winger Charlie

Charlie would be an attacking

threat.

“We are a mature team this

year,” Lawrie said. “In previous

years, some of the younger

guys have looked up to the

experienced heads in the team,

but this year we are all on the

same level.”

The Keas have won both

encounters so far this year, 20-12

in round one and a 23-16 victory

in round eight.

The Keas have plenty of quality

across the park. Play-maker

Daniel Hartley is often the

provider for attacking weapons

like winger Ben Ilalio and frontrower

Jiordan Fidow-Kele who

each scored hat-tricks against the

Hornets in their previous game.

The grand-final kicks off

at 3pm after the women’s

final between the Papanui

Tigers and Linwood Keas

at 1pm. Entry is $10 for

adults with children

under-16 free.

The Celebration Lions

The Star

Possibilities wide open in NRL play-off run-in

WITH TWO rounds of the

Telstra Premiership regular

season to go, it’s technically

possible for either the Warriors

or Broncos to finish with the

minor premiership or miss the

top-eight altogether.

There are still plenty of questions

to be answered at the end

of one of the closest NRL seasons

in memory, with eight teams a

mathematical chance of finishing

the regular season on top.

While the finishing order is still

to be determined, the make-up

of the finals contenders is more

certain. The top-six now guaranteed

to play finals football and the

Wests Tigers the only side currently

outside the eight that still

has a chance of sneaking in.

Brisbane did their chances of

holding onto a play-off berth a

world of good by beating South

Sydney tonight, with the Warriors

now in the most precarious

position of the top half of the table

with matches against Penrith

and Canberra to come.

Both those matches will be

played in Auckland but neither

will be easy wins – the Panthers

are finals-bound and will be

desperate to bounce back from a

shock loss to Newcastle while the

Raiders are fresh from knocking

the Sydney Roosters off the top

of the table. The Warriors’ home

record is only the 11th best in the

league this season, with five wins

and five losses.

The Broncos have a slight

edge over the Warriors on forand-against

and will finish their

season with a home clash against

the struggling Sea Eagles after

this week’s blockbuster against

the Roosters.

Both the Warriors and Broncos

can lock up a finals spot by winning

either of their remaining

games. Even if one of those sides

lose both their games, the ninthplaced

Tigers will need to beat

the Sea Eagles and Rabbitohs and

overturn a poor points differential

(-44) to grab eighth spot.

Meanwhile, at the foot of the

ladder, the 15th-placed Eels will

visit the 16th-placed Cowboys

on Friday night, with a wooden

spoon potentially up for grabs in

what will be Johnathan Thurston’s

final home game for North

Queensland.

SKY HAS completely lost

the plot with its recently

added eSports pop-up

channel.

eSports, an abbreviation

for electronic sports, is

defined as a form of sports

where the primary aspects

of the sport are facilitated

by the competitive playing

of video games.

If you think this is about

to turn into a rant about

video games not being a

sport you’re wrong, it has

a place and a market but it

doesn’t belong on Sky and

I’ll explain why.

eSports doesn’t belong on Sky

• By Gordon Findlater

PETER FULTON could

be a dark horse to succeed

Gary Stead as Canterbury

Cricket’s head coach.

Current assistant Brendon

Donkers has been

tipped as the front-runner

to take the helm for Canterbury

this summer. However,

Fulton – Canterbury’s

all-time leader in matches,

runs, catches and matches

as captain – has stated he

will apply for the position

if and when it is advertised.

“If it came up I would.

I’ve got aspirations to

coach at a high level. If it

came up and you didn’t apply

then it might be quite

a while until it came up

again,” said Fulton.

Since pulling the stumps

on his player career at

the end of the 2016/2017

summer Fulton has begun

a pathway to coaching.

Fulton was the batting

coach for the New Zealand

under-19 team and has

been part of the coaching

staff with New Zealand

Cricket’s winter training

squad over the past two

years.

He is also the coach of

Christ’s College’s first XI

and has spent four years

coaching rugby over the

winter with Christchurch

Football Club’s premier

reserve side.

Does market research

still exist?

The place of eSport on

Sky reminds me of when

Coliseum Sports Media

outbid Sky for the rights to

the PGA Tour in 2014. This

meant golf fans would have

to subscribe to an online

streaming service.

Let’s do some market research.

To me your average

PGA Tour consumer is a lot

of dads I know who get up

on Sunday, sit on the couch

and enjoy the third round

with the simple click of the

TV remote likely over a

coffee.

but it’s why the concept

DARK HORSE: Peter

Fulton (right) has

stated he is keen to

succeed Gary Stead

as Canterbury’s head

coach. ​

Whether or not Canterbury

Cricket think Fulton

could be the man for the

top job is another question.

Current assistant coach

Donkers will see moving

to the head role as the next

logical progression is his

coaching career.

“If Canterbury Cricket

or the Canterbury Cricket

board thought I was the

best person lead the team

forward then it would be

a privilege to be the head

coach . . . if they don’t

then so be it. It has to be

thought it wasn’t always

be involved in a marketing

worth noting this was in

for many.

To me Sky’s new GINX

of what happened in 2014,

just flipped in reverse.

Canterbury Cricket also

has current performance

squad coach Dion Ebrahim

– another highly-touted

coach – who could take a

step forward with Stead’s

departure.

But, with a person of

Fulton’s pedigree keen to

give back to Canterbury

Cricket in a coaching

capacity it would surely

make sense to have him

involved somewhere in the

equation.

Donkers – who is seen by

many as the favourite for

the head coaching role –

has no issue in heaping on

Fulton’s credentials.

“I’m sure he would make

a great coach. Tactically

he’s very good and he has

a lot of respect from the

players,’’ said Donkers.

The biggest question

could be around how Canterbury

Cricket structures

itself going forward. Stead

took on a heavy workload

as both director of cricket

and head coach. Would

it be possible to accommodate

positions of prominence

for Fulton, Donkers

and Ebrahim?

“Whether we could work

AUCTION

Redcliffs: 19 Glenstrae Road

My elderly vendors are very serious

sellers. They have already vacated and

their future is hanging in the balance,

reliant on the sale of their home either

before or at auction. At 94 and 81 they

have had enough. After the trauma of

the quakes and a substantial repair, they

wish to move to the comfort of a

retirement village. Located on the

lower slopes of Glenstrae Road, this is

an awesome home with views to enjoy

day in and day out. I invite you to our

open homes, or view by appointment.

What to ask at an open home

It’s easy to get carried away when you’re searching through

property listings for the house of your dreams. But if you’re not

careful, home buying can become a nightmare.

“Buying a property is a complex and

potentially stressful process, not least

because it involves such a scary amount

of money,” says Kevin Lampen-Smith,

chief executive at the Real Estate Agents

Authority (REAA).

“It’s smart to do as much as you can to

reduce the risk of unwelcome surprises or

unexpected costs further down the line.”

In the first instance, Lampen-Smith

recommends drawing up a list of questions

to ask about properties you’re interested in.

“Remember that you can ask the real estate

agent anything you like about the property,”

he says. “They are also required to tell you

everything they know and not withhold any

details.”

If you’re not sure what to ask, here’s a handy

list of questions. Open homes can be busy,

so ask the agent if you can talk on the phone,

or send questions via email.

- Have there been any issues with the

property, such as earthquake damage or

water-tightness?

- Are there any offers on the property,

or have any contracts been cancelled by

potential buyers?

- How long has it been on the market?

What is the seller’s preferred settlement

date?

- What maintenance, repairs or

improvements have been carried out? Do

these have permits?

- Is there a Land Information

Memorandum (LIM) available or a building

SALE BY DEADLINES CLOSING

report prepared by an accredited property

surveyor?

- Is the property well-maintained? What

condition are the roof, piles, wiring, and

plumbing in?

- Is the property insulated? If so, to what

degree (eg walls, underfloor, ceiling)?

- Is there any risk of methamphetamine

(P) contamination?

- If there is a body corporate (usually for

apartments), what does that entail?

- Are there any issues with neighbours or

planned developments?

“If you are seriously considering making an

offer, you will need to do your own research

and seek professional advice. It may well

become your home, so you need to know as

much about it as possible to save unhappy

surprises later,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Knowing the right questions to ask is a

good starting point.”
