Corruption sting widens

MORE ARRESTS have been

made in the major police

operation focused on the harness

racing industry.

A 30-year-old trainer/driver

was among three people arrested

yesterday. He faces charges

of offering to supply ecstasy to

several people including high

profile people in the industry.

He was also charged with

unlawful possession of a stun

gun.

A 26-year-old male who

appeared in the district court

yesterday was granted name

suppression. He has been

charged with both race-fixing

and drug supply offences.

The 17-month police inquiry

centred in Canterbury has seen

many raids on properties this

week.

Ten people have now been

charged during Operation Inca,

which is investigating race

fixing and drug use within the

industry.

There were six search warrants

carried out in Christchurch

yesterday morning, taking the

total number of search warrants

to 17.

Stuff has reported those

under investigation to date are

champion driver Blair Orange,

John Dunn, Nigel McGrath,

Natalie Rasmussen, Andrew

Stuart, another unnamed man,

and Manawatū thoroughbred

racing administrator Brent Wall.

Police have also raided leading

driver Dexter Dunn’s property.

Brother of John Dunn, he is

currently driving in the United

States.

The Star understands he will

be interviewed when he returns

to Christchurch.

Yesterday morning, police

went to Cran Dalgety’s Racing

Stables in West Melton, where

Dexter Dunn, 28, was based.

A CANTERBURY University law

go overseas on a study-related trip.

Bu the university’s dean of

The Star sent a number of questions

to Canterbury University

Said Canterbury University

spokeswoman Margaret Agnew:

“UC cannot respond to allegations

that are before the police.”

She referred the questions

WEDDING RINGS and boxing

gloves go hand-in-hand for a

husband and wife team who will

compete at the New Zealand

amateur championships next

month.

Sam and Tegan Clark have

been named as part of the

Canterbury team which will be

eyeing up national titles on home

soil for the first time since 2010

at the Hornby Workingmen’s

Club.

Sam said while they met

outside boxing eight years ago,

he was aware Tegan was a handy

boxer.

“I remember I hadn’t paid

much attention that she was a

boxer but I remember watching

her in the gym one night and

thinking she was better than

most of the boys,” he said.

“We had a round of training

together (on Monday night) but

it’s not something we do often

because it’s a weird match-up.”

The couple got married earlier

this year and have two children

together, Alexia, 4 and Andre, 3.

The kids come with us to our

trainings on a weekly basis and

have their own pair of gloves,”

Tegan said.

Tegan, 25, returned to the ring

12 months ago after having six

years away to start their family.

She won five national titles at the

junior level and was eager to add

an elite title to it next month.

Tegan will compete weekend

in an attempt to qualify for the

world championships in India

in November. Her ultimate goal

is to make the Olympic squad at

Tokyo 2020.

“It was tough watching Sam

on the sidelines and watching

the other girls fight and know I

could do a better job,” she said.

She said having Sam there is a

great motivator. “We don’t spar

together but we keep each other

on the straight and narrow in

terms of diet.

Tegan starting boxing at

10-years-old when her dad, Lee

Madden was the coach at the

Woolston Boxing Club.

“I was always getting in to the

ring and jumping on things and

shadow boxing,” she said.

“I always promised dad I

would get back into it after

having the kids.”

The couple now box for the

East may run

for mayor

•From page 1

“I couldn’t say yes or no, I would

have said definitely no but, I will

think about it.”

Mayor Lianne Dalziel confirmed Cr

East has been stood down from his

position as chairman of the regulatory

performance committee.

He will also face a disciplinary

hearing for his claims on Monday that

city council staff allegedly omitted a

policy in the district plan.

The policy enabled people to build,

renovate or extend their homes in the

coastal suburbs of South Brighton,

Southshore and Redcliffs.

Ms Dalziel is yet to confirm whether

she will stand for a third term at the

local body elections next October.

If she doesn’t, the mayoral race is

likely to be wide open.

“I would dearly love to see a council

that is more reflective of the needs of the

city . . . I believe sometimes our approach

to planning at times has not taken the

people with it. I don’t believe we have

ever taken the people of Southshore and

South Brighton with us,” he said.

Yesterday, chief executive Karleen

Edwards laid a formal complaint to

Ms Dalziel on behalf of the city council

in relation to Cr East for breaching

the council’s code of conduct.

Dr Edwards and Ms Dalziel will

discuss it today.

Councillors close ranks

CITY COUNCILLORS have

closed ranks when asked

whether they support their

When approached by The

Star yesterday, city councillors,

Jamie Gough, Tim Scandrett,

Vicki Buck, Phil Clearwater,

Pauline Cotter and Raf Manji

declined to

comment.

Papanui

Ward councillor

Mike

Davidson (left)

said Cr East’s

approach is not

the approach

he would have taken.

“I support what the mayor has

done,” he said.

Heathcote Ward councillor

Sara Templeton agreed that a

process needed to occur to look

into the policy, but did not agree

that going public in the manner

was “the most useful way” to

resolve the issue.

“It’s clear that that was not the

intent of the independent hearings

panel and there needs to be

a process to ensure that intent is

being met.”

SUPPORT: Coastal-Burwood Community Board

chairwoman Kim Money, Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member Darrell Latham and

members of coastal communities are backing David

East, two signs have been put up in Southshore.

Cr Templeton said there was a

“lack of clarity” around the policy

which needed to be made clear.

Linwood Ward councillor

Yani Johanson said he could not

comment on Cr East’s conduct,

but said he agreed there were

issues with the policy.

“I want to acknowledge that

this is an issue causing massive

concern in the community.”

Central Ward councillor

Deon Swiggs, speaking from

Perth, said he was aware of the

issue around the policy and said

it needed “addressing ASAP.”

Burwood Ward city councillor

Glenn Livingstone said

he was aware of the issue, but

wouldn’t comment further.

“Personally myself I wouldn’t

be making allegations like this.”

He said the facts need to be

established first.

Some community board

members have spoken out in

support of Cr East.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham said he supported

Cr East, “with respect to

the letter he has received from

They are serious matters of

these are the matters council

Second Anglican vicar stands down

• By Ashleigh Monk

A SECOND Christchurch

vicar has resigned following the

Anglican synod’s decision to

allow same sex marriages to be

blessed in their churches.

St Paul’s

Anglican Church

vicar Andy Carley

told parishioners

at a service last

week he would

step down

John

Stringer

Peter

Carrell

from his role in

November.

It comes

after vicar Jay

Behan of St

Stephen’s Shirley

announced his

resignation in

May.

The Anglican

synod voted in

May on Motion

29 to allow the

blessing of same sex unions in

churches across the country.

Four Christchurch congregations

have so far disaffiliated

from the synod in response to the

decision.

St Paul’s parishioner and

Papanui-Innes Community

Board member John Stringer told

The Star Rev Carley announced

last week that he would leave

the church and set up his own

congregation.

“Like-minded” parishioners

members were free to follow

him or stay at St Paul’s and allow

same sex marriage blessings,’’

said Mr Stringer.

Rev Carley declined to

comment when approached by

The Star.

Mr Stringer said the majority

of parishioners were conservative.

But there would likely be a

number who stayed at St Paul’s.

“For most of us, it’s actually

about the authority of biblical

scripture and whether it is a

faithful communiqué on the will

of God,” he said.

“Many feel the Anglican

Church is now openly supporting

something they believe is wrong,

and telling everyone it is okay

and that God ‘blesses’ it. They

feel betrayed and let down.”

The congregation would decide

on Sunday whether to follow Rev

Carley in leaving.

STEPPING

DOWN:

Andy Carley,

vicar of St Paul’s

Anglican Church

in Papanui,

resigned from

his role following

the Anglican

synod’s vote

to allow same

sex marriages

to be blessed

in Anglican

churches.

Bishop-elect of Christchurch

Peter Carrell has been visiting

churches across the city to discuss

the issue.

Personally, he would not bless

same sex marriages, but he believed

each church had the right

to decide if they wanted to do so.

“I’m quite happy as Bishopelect

to authorise priests to

perform those blessings, provided

that the parishes are united

behind that,” he told The Star.

Four out of the 60 ministry

units had so far voted to disaffiliate

from the diocese. He was

unsure how many more would

follow.

“It’s difficult to measure . . . it’s

certainly causing people to make

the decision to disaffiliate,” he said.

“Most of our parishes are comfortable

with the decision

. . . we are really sad that some

parishes are going, and we wish

they weren’t going, but they do

have the right to disagree with

the position of the General

Synod. But we do want to be

careful and considerate about

our continuing relationship with

those who are part of our church

family.”

He said he did not believe there

would be an impact on funding

for the rebuild of the Christ

Church Cathedral at this stage.

Rev Behan said yesterday his

congregation had disaffiliated

with the synod “with great sadness.”

There is a lot of sadness from

both sides that we haven’t been

able to come to an arrangement

where, in good conscience, we can

move forward together,” he said.

“We’re determined to try and

keep good relationships, we’re

not wanting things to get worse

or to become more difficult

relationally.”

Sooty sells up after 26 years of

Well-known publican

Stephen “Sooty”

Moffett is moving on

from the Islington

Tavern after 26 years.

He sat down with

reporter Anan Zaki to

discuss the highs and

IT WAS the night of September

4, 2010, the city was still in

shock from the magnitude 7.1

earthquake which struck that

morning.

Businesses all over the city

were closed, but on Main South

Rd, the queues for the Islington

Tavern, also known as The

Swamp, spilled onto the footpath.

“We never missed a day. There

was just nowhere else [for people]

to go. One in the morning and

we had 100 people outside and

100 people inside and we’re only

allowed 144 people,” recalls Mr

Moffett.

“At one stage we had 11 doormen,

so it takes everything

you make away. We had people

dragging each other through

windows, it was crazy.”

The 54-year-old took over The

Swamp in August 1992, and

moved in above the pub. To this

END OF AN ERA: Stephen “Sooty” Moffett is selling the Islington Tavern, known as The

Swamp after 26 years of ownership.

day he does not know how it

became known as The Swamp.

“No idea and no one has ever

told me. It was always here.

Whether it had something to do

with the freezing works around

here, I don’t know,” Mr Moffett

said.

The pub has remained a popular

watering hole for freezing

workers and rugby league players.

When Mr Moffett took over, it

was his first foray into hospitality.

“My former in-laws were in

the [hospitality] game, and at the

time we thought it was a great

idea.”

Initially it was hard, working

long hours to keep the business

running, but that was just part of

the “tough” industry.

“I really slogged it out back

then,” he said.

One memorable moment that

he will never forget in his 26

years at The Swamp was a breakin

in the late 1990s.

The most bizarre thing that’s

ever happened is I got robbed by

two people in wetsuits and [they]

emptied our gaming machines.

The alarms didn’t go off, the

window was taken out and they

came through,” Mr Moffett said.

The break-in was caught on a

CCTV camera, but police were

never able to catch the thieves,

he said.

Mr Moffett started $5 roasts

which packed in customers.

“Twenty-six years ago, there

was just less choice. Hospitality is

really tough on the food game at

the moment.

“To sell a roast to a young

person now would be pretty hard,

whereas back then they would

come looking for it,” Mr Moffett

said.

Behaviour at pubs have also

changed for the better in recent

years, he said.

“Twenty-six years ago you’d

be waiting at the back door for

something to happen. It was the

wild west.

“Whereas now, if something

happened it would make the

newspaper,” Mr Moffett said.

When fights broke out, he

had no time for it and trespass

notices were handed out almost

immediately.

Mr Moffett said he is selling the

business to a “North Island-based

development company.”

He said the owners did not

want to be named.

However, Mr Moffett will still

be at The Swamp until the new

owners fully take over in late

February.

He decided to sell the business

after struggling through a year

of roadworks at Pound Rd from

2016 to 2017.

“It was never really for sale,

they [the new owners] came

trying to buy it and I guess once

you see roadworks around here,

you realise how vulnerable you

are to it affecting your business.

“We had a drastic change in

turnover, revenue fell about 20

per cent. But I’m not going to

say how much we turn over,” Mr

Moffett said.

He does not know what the new

owners plans are for the property,

but he believes the name The

Swamp will be kept.

And what will he miss the most

when he leaves The Swamp?

The people. The characters

that come here, you get to know

them all over the years,” Mr

Moffett said.

As for his own nickname,

“Sooty”, it originated from The

Sooty (TV) Show which ran from

1955 to 1992.

“When I worked at a

supermarket as a schoolboy

[in the 1970s], I used to pack

sausages, and the boss of the

butchery gave [the name].

There was two of us [working

under the boss], I was called

Sooty and the other one was

called Sweep,” Mr Moffett said.

And he doesn’t plan to leave the

industry just yet.

“I’ve got another bar,

Schroeder’s in St Albans. At this

stage it’ll be the only one,” he

said.

However, Mr Moffett did not

rule out buying a new bar.

He has some advice for anyone

looking into getting into the

hospitality industry.

“It’s [about] the customer, the

customer, the customer,” Mr

Moffett said.

“No matter what you think, it’s

about the customer.”

No funerals at Fendalton property

A FUNERAL home owner has

backed down over plans to hold

small-scale funerals out of his

Fendalton home.

Andrew Bell has instead applied

for a resource consent to

operate a home office from his

property on Rochdale St, Stuff

reported yesterday.

The Bell, Lamb and Trotter

managing director intends to

carry out administrative activities

including invoicing, payments,

web design and service sheet

design from the house, a resource

consent application shows.

Mr Bell had originally planned

to operate a small-scale funeral

home from the property, but

a resource consent allowing

the move, which was issued by

commissioner Philip Milne, was

quashed by the High Court in

March after the Rochdale Precinct

Society pursued a judicial

review of the decision.

In her ruling, Justice Susan

Thomas said while she agreed

the original application met the

“home occupation” rules, the

commissioner had erred in his

consideration of traffic issues.

Mr Bell had planned to hold

up to 26 services a year in the

house limited to 10 people,

including staff. Nearby residents

were incensed at the decision

allowing the company to hold

funerals at the home and formed

the society to seek the review.

Boxing Day survivor remembers

Alex Brown was 14

when he survived a

horrific crash on Boxing

Day 2016. Three other

teenagers in the car

died. Now aged 16 Alex

talks for the first time to

reporter Emily O’Connell

about the ordeal and

why he survived

IT WAS after midnight on

Boxing Day and 14-year-old

Alex Brown’s world was literally

upside down.

He had been knocked out

when the car he was in smashed

into trees at 111km/h.

Now conscious, and 20min

after the 1.30am crash, he was in

the middle of a nightmare. It was

dark but he could still make out

some of carnage in the upturned

Nissan Tida.

He put two fingers on his best

mate Cole Christensen-Hull’s

neck. There was no pulse.

“I shut his eyes and gave him

one last hug before I got out of

the car and that was the last

memory I have of him,” Alex,

now 16, he recalled last week.

Also in the car were three other

teenagers, Sam Drost and Lily

Moore, both 15, who would lose

their lives on that terrible night,

and the unlicensed 14-year-old

driver, who had survived.

Alex had only met Sam and Lily

that night.

Alex tried to get Lily out of the

car, but was unsuccessful. Alex

had suffered two broken hands

and a fractured wrist.

He couldn’t see Sam.

He kicked part of the windscreen

out, and got the seriously

injured driver (who has not been

named publicly because of his

age) halfway out of the car before

trying to find help.

After walking for about a minute,

he spotted a vehicle driving

past and waved it down.

“To be honest, I didn’t know

what was going on really. All the

adrenaline and everything all

just happened really fast and I

just told the lady [who he waved

down], ‘we’ve crashed, they’re

not breathing, please get help’,’’

Alex said.

The teenagers had been out

cruising and had ran into trouble

at a camping ground at Lake

Alex and Cole had spent some

of Christmas Day together,

hanging around, playing basketball

and riding bikes. They were

picked up at Southbridge School

at about 12.30am and headed out

to the lake.

horror car crash ordeal

Two “older men” camping at

the site had confronted them

because of their driving behaviour.

Alex said Sam was punched

and pushed into the lake. He

and Cole had run away when the

altercation happened and were

picked up later by the other three.

A gut feeling told Alex to put

his safety belt on. He was in

the back seat. He normally did

buckle up but on the way out to

the lake he hadn’t worn it. No

one else in the

car was wearing

seat belts.

Theresa Brown

As they

drove at speed

south along

Harts Rd,

they discussed

the mark on

Sam’s head,

caused Alex

said, by being

hit by one of

the two men at the lake, and his

wet clothes.

Cole then told the others in

the car they were being chased.

There were headlights behind

them. They feared it was because

of the altercation at the camping

ground. The driver sped up.

Police would later say there

was no evidence to support the

theory they were being chased.

They’re chasing us, they’re

chasing us,” Alex recalls Cole

saying.

Then disaster. The car failed

to take a corner just before the

junction with Southbridge-

Sedgemere Rd, it hit a grass

mound and became airborne for

about 14m before hitting a row

of trees.

Alex, knocked out, doesn’t

recall the impact.

When he came to, his world

had changed.

The families of the teenagers

were also about to get the worst

possible news.

The police knocked on the

door of Alex’s home at 4.30am.

Recalls his mother Theresa

Brown: “Your world comes

crashing down . . . your heart just

goes into your boots,” she said.

DEVASTATING: From left – Sam Drost, Cole Christensen-Hull and Lily Moore, all 15, died in

the Boxing Day 2016 crash near Leeston.

RESPECT: Friends of the victims mourn at the crash site.

She was hoping police had got

it wrong. Alex was supposed to

have been staying at Cole’s house

for the night.

“We drove to the hospital and

it wasn’t wrong. It was right,” she

said.

The months following the

crash were terrible, said Alex.

Attending his best friend Cole’s

funeral was hardest.

“It was pretty tough when they

were showing the photos, they

showed a photo that I took of

him on Christmas, so the last

photo that was taken of him,

yeah it was pretty tough,” he said.

The three service sheets from

the funerals sit on a shelf in

Alex’s room. He looks at them

each day as he wakes up and

before he goes to sleep.

They’re always there with me,

even though I didn’t know Sam

and Lily they’re part of my life now,

I feel like I know them,” he said.

Alex, who has been diagnosed

with post traumatic stress disorder,

says after the crash he stayed

at home a lot with close family

and friends.

To help process what he had

experienced, Alex tried counselling.

“I wasn’t the biggest fan of that

so I stopped but the majority of it

is mum really, kept to myself and

talked to mum,” he said.

Going to the gym also helped.

“I’ve always been like a sporty

kid but I started the gym mainly

to keep in better shape and keep

myself doing something, keep

myself occupied,” he said.

He says Christmas is a difficult

time.

“It’s supposed to be a happy

time, but it’s not, it’s still happy

but it’s not the best feeling anymore,”

Alex said.

Now he’s 16, Alex has got his

learner licence.

Learning to drive has been a

“nerve-wracking” process for

him and something he’s taking

his time doing.

Looking back, Alex says he realises

what a mistake they made

by driving that night.

“I realise I made the right

choice [wearing a seat belt] but

sometimes you feel a little bit

guilty that I was one of the two

out of the five who survived but

then just grateful to be honest,”

he said.

Looking forward to the future,

Alex is wanting to finish high

school, get a job and maybe study

at university.

For now though, Alex is advising

other teenagers to be careful

when it comes to driving.

“Be safe, always make sure the

person driving has their full licence

or if they’re on their learners,

there’s someone with their

full licence in the car,” he said.

Quarry

petition

will be

submitted

next week

• By Anan Zaki

TEMPLETON residents will

next week submit a petition

demanding a proposed Fulton

Hogan quarry be stopped.

The petition has 4050 signatures

and was launched online

by the Templeton Residents’

Association six months ago.

The proposed quarry is at a

170ha site on Curraghs, Dawsons,

Jones and Maddisons Rds.

Chairman Garry Kilday said

the petition will be presented

to Environment Canterbury,

Ministry for the Environment

and Selwyn District Council.

He could not confirm what

day next week the petition will

be presented.

Mr Kilday said the support

from the community has been

“massive.”

“It’s been good for public

unity because people have stood

up in a solid form.”

The petition had signatures

from Australia and the United

States.

“It’s amazing actually, the

amount of people who have

signed this petition, quite

incredible when you read it,” Mr

Kilday said.

Meanwhile, the campaign has

secured $25,000 in donations to

help fund an anticipated legal

fight.

Mr Kilday said he is grateful

for the donations, but believed

the residents will never have

enough money to match Fulton

Hogan’s “deep pockets.”

He believed the residents will

need at least $500,000 should

they have to go to the Environment

Court.

“Like everything else in the

country, it’s all about [who has

the most] money, not the fairness,”

Mr Kilday said.

Former soldier’s huge poster

• By Matt Salmons

FILM BUFF and former soldier

Wil Wright is turning his

Sumner home into a gallery of

his more than 12,000 original

film posters.

As far as the avid collector

knew, it would be the first of its

kind in New Zealand.

There’s a few private

collectors around, but they

don’t really have them out on

display.”

The gallery would open this

summer in the home he and

his wife had moved into over

Christmas.

Viewing would be free, by

appointment and in every room

except the “bedrooms and bathrooms.”

“It’s hard to get it all out on

display, we’ve got about 12,000

plus pieces in the collection,” Mr

Wright said.

The former British Army gunsmith

said he started his collection

more than 20 years ago with

a poster from classic John Wayne

World War 2 film The Longest

Day.

“I was raised on the old black

and white movies by my father,

and that always stuck with me.

The old posters had some fantastic

artwork, painted by artists,

it’s all cast montages these

days.”

Mr Wright spent 14 years in

the British Army including service

with the 1st Battalion Parachute

Regiment in Sierra Leone

and five months of 2003 during

the opening stages of the second

Gulf War in Iraq with the 1st

Battalion Royal Irish Regiment.

NOSTALGIA: Wil Wright said many of his posters,

such as Dirty Harry, To Kill a Mockingbird, Rocky

and Blow Up were the films he grew up watching.

Three years later, he

was accepted for the New

Zealand Defence Force and

moved to Burnham, along

with his collection.

After leaving military

life behind in 2011, Mr

Wright spent three years

as a project manager at the

Art Centre before leaving

in 2014 to make a career

out of his collection and

gallery.

Collecting original film

posters is not common in

New Zealand Mr Wright

said, and he hoped opening

the gallery would encourage

appreciation for the

original material. “You can

buy a print of anything, but

that’s just a print. It has no

age to it, no story.”

One of his favourite

pieces is from pre-World

War 1 medieval drama

Ivanhoe.

“It’s from 1913 and quite

rare, I think there’s only

three of them left . . . it’s

105 years old and it looks

like a work of art.”

He also has a poster from

1937 adventure film The

Mysterious Pilot, about the

real exploits of famed aviator

Frank Hawks.

As it is possibly the last

example of the poster, it

had needed extensive restoration.

“Our main focus is to

save these things which

weren’t meant to survive,”

Mr Wright said.

None of the prints on

FREE ENTRY

display were for sale, Mr

Wright said

Funding would come

from selling duplicates on

his website.

“But, if anyone has anything

hidden away, please

let us know. We’ll buy it off

them to restore and display

it.”

Red zone

barriers

extended

EXTENDED ROAD barriers

are being installed in some parts

of the red zone to stop illegal

rubbish dumping and boy racers

from destroying the vegetation.

They will also create tighter

security in the area. In early 2016,

barriers were placed across roads

in the red zone to deter anti-social

behaviour and illegal rubbish

dumping.

The barriers were designed

to allow pedestrians and cyclists

access to the area but to keep

vehicles out. Unfortunately, some

drivers continued to bypass the

barriers by mounting the footpath

and driving around them,’’ said

city council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas. “Once

past the barriers, they’re using

the area as a dumping ground

for their rubbish, which is

unacceptable.”

“We want to prevent that

from happening and have been

working on the issue with Land

Information New Zealand. LINZ

manages red-zoned land for the

Crown but the city council owns

The new face of Ice Cream Charlie

• By Sophie Cornish

KATEY LANE has been a lover

of Ice Cream Charlie since she

was a child.

Now, she has brought the business,

known as Vanilla Ices.

Ms Lane took over ownership

at the weekend, after she

expressed her interest to former

owners Raewyn and George Taylor,

who sold the business after

20 years, to retire.

Three months ago, Ms Lane

approached Mr and Mrs Taylor

to buy an ice cream and said,

“this is my favourite and I want

to own it some day.”

“It happened to work with

when they were planning on

retiring and it just came together

from that . . . in reality I was

thinking two or three years

down the line, not three months,

but that’s alright.”

Ms Lane enjoys ice cream and

says anywhere she is, she will eat

it.

“I have travelled extensively

and yes, I have eaten a lot of ice

cream.”

“It’s so different from other ice

cream flavours that I’ve tasted

that I have never found replicated

anywhere else in the world. You

can have any number of fabulous

ice cream flavours, but there is

no ice cream texture and taste

quite like an Ice Cream Charlie’s

Vanilla Ice,” she said.

Ms Lane said she “stepped out”

of the corporate world about three

years ago after being a business

manager in real estate, and a registered

nurse prior to that.

She is now an entrepreneur

and owns another small business

called, Wool-it, which uses natural

wool for blister prevention.

Ms Lane believes her biggest

challenge will be living up to the

expectations of the local business,

which was first started in

1903 by Sali Mohomet, who set

up a cart in Cathedral Square.

It is unclear why the original

owner, who made the ice cream

in a dairy behind his home in St

Albans, was dubbed ‘Ice Cream

Charlie, but the business has been

known by the name ever since.

She refused to give away the secret

to the well-loved ice cream.

“I paid way too much money to

ever tell anyone what the recipe

is,” she laughed.

Ms Lane has hired a friend,

Ross Sheppard, to help her in the

truck also.

CHALLENGE: The Palms Shopping Centre manager Emma Smith found how difficult it was

yesterday to be in a wheelchair while running an entire mall.

Wheelchair challenge

for mall manager

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

EVERY WEEK at least three New

Zealanders are paralysed by a

spinal cord injury.

Yesterday, The Palms shopping

centre manager Emma Smith

found out how challenging it is to

be in a wheelchair.

To raise awareness for spinal

cord injuries, Mrs Smith spent the

day in a wheelchair while running

the shopping centre.

Getting used to a wheelchair

was “challenging.” Small things

like unpacking a bag or a laptop

or going to the bathroom were a

struggle, she said.

“I really appreciated how challenging

life can be for others and

I certainly won’t take for granted

the easy accessibility I have,” she

said.

The Palms teamed up with the

New Zealand Spinal Trust as part

of a week-long national appeal to

raise funds and awareness.

The NZST helps those affected

by spinal cord injury or impairment

live independent and confident

lives.

Rock-fall risk could stop garden

• By Matt Salmons

ROCK-FALL RISK could thwart

plans for a memorial garden to

honour two Lyttelton men who

died in the February 22, 2011,

The Norton Close site, former

home of Owen Wright, was suggested

for a garden to remember

him and Ian Foldesi.

Jeremy Barr said it was “too early”

to say if and how the garden to

Mrs Smith said on average three

people suffering a spinal cord

injury was “horrifically sad.”

“It is just really important we as

a centre understand the frustrations

and challenges and we can

continue to make improvements

for these families.

“All shopping centres should be

accessible, there is no excuse not

to,” she said.

The Palms is working on making

its cafes more accessible by

ensuring there is enough room for

people with wheelchairs to access

the area with ease.

At the shopping centre yesterday

was NZST marketing manager

Mike Brown.

Six years ago his life changed

forever when he was struck by

a car while working in Tannum

Sands, Queensland.

He was skateboarding to a park

to meet his son and wife when a car

crossed the centre line, crashing

into him and breaking his back.

The accident left Mr Brown

with a spinal cord injury and he

support he and his family received

after the accident.

It was a long road to recovery

for Mr Brown, but he said with the

right support from organisations

like the NZST, life is pretty good.

There are constant struggles,

accessibility is only one of those

struggles but I think as a society

we are certainly a lot more aware

and we are making more steps to

make it more inclusive,” he said.

On Saturday, the shopping

centre will host a wheelchair

obstacle course where the public

can participate with a gold coin

donation.

The nationwide appeal started

yesterday for World Spinal Cord

Wednesday.

“Because this particular property

Farmers told to secure cattle

• By Emily O’Connell

FARMERS ARE being reminded

to check their fences after

another car v cow incident.

The latest reported incident

happened on Hororata

Dunsandel Rd last week. The

motorist was not hurt but the

cow was killed.

North Canterbury Federated

Farmers dairy chairman Michael

Woodward said there are a

number of reasons why cattle

were ending up on roads.

“Potentially it’s basic security

hasn’t been followed . . . there

could also be people coming

onto properties who aren’t

supposed to be there that then

leave gates open,” he said.

The crashes are a “good

reminder” to farmers to check

their boundaries.

“With mycoplasma bovis in

the district the need to run a

secondary boundary fence isn’t

a bad thing, especially if it’s at

a gateway then that provides

a double level of security,” Mr

Woodward said.

Rolleston woman Carissa

Maitland who hit a cow last

month on Lincoln Rolleston

Rd said she was lucky she was

driving slowly when the crash

DANGER: Former Selwyn Mayor Bill Woods hit a cow in

his Mercedes-Benz, one of several accidents which has

prompted calls for farmers to check their fences.

happened.

The incident was “pretty

terrifying.”

She was driving home from

the Crusaders Super Rugby final

against the Lions on August 4

when her she collided with the

cow about 11pm.

Mrs Maitland was travelling

at 30km/h through road works

on the 100km/h road when the

cow “came straight out in front”

of her.

“I didn’t see it at all and so, I

didn’t even brake and it basically

kind of sat on my bonnet and

rolled back onto my windscreen,”

Mrs Maitland said.

The vehicle sustained

significant damage to the bonnet

and roof and needed to be

replaced. Mrs Maitland and the

cow were uninjured.

Her collision is just one of

four accidents involving cattle

over the past two months in the

Selwyn District.

A 27-year-old suffered serious

injuries when she collided with a

cow in Burnham on July 19.

On July 12, former Selwyn

Mayor Bill Woods and his two

passengers were lucky to escape

serious injury after his Mercedes-

Benz, travelling at about

100km/h, collided with a cow.

In July, Senior Sergeant Pete

Stills said road accidents with

cows were a “good reason” for

motorists to keep their speed

down.

“Hit a horse or a cow at speed

and you’re in trouble because

all you do is take their legs out

and they come up the bonnet

through your windscreen often,”

he said.

Selwyn District Council senior

animal control officer Steve

Clarke is advising people driving

on rural roads to make sure they

are aware of potential hazards.

“If you do see farm animals on

the road please report it through

our 24-hour line – 347 2800,” he

said.

Surgeon’s surprise link to Irish insurrection

• By Sophie Cornish

CHRISTCHURCH surgeon

Professor Frank Frizelle was

receiving an international award

in Ireland when he discovered

family links to the 1916 Easter

Rising.

Prof Frizelle travelled to Dublin

in July to receive one of the highest

honours, an honorary fellowship

from the Royal College of

Surgeons in Ireland.

Every award recipient received

a citation written about them,

from a college council member.

“You never know what they are

going to say until they say it,” said

Prof Frizelle.

“He (Professor Paul Burke)

found a lot of stuff out that I

never knew about; such as my

great-grandfather had written

to the Irish Government in his

role as some sort of administrator,

suggesting that they let go

the leaders of the 1916 rebellion,

however, they ignored him and

shot them, eventually helping

turning the tide of the popular

feeling for independence,” he said.

Prof Frizelle’s, great grandfather,

Nicholas Frizelle, was

county manager at a town named

Wexford.

He sent a letter to Michael

O’Rahilly, also known as The

O’Rahilly, an Irish republican and

nationalist who was the founding

member of the Irish Volunteers

in 1913.

In the letter, he informed him

the Wexford County Council had

adopted a resolution requesting

the Lord Lieutenant, who was

Lord Wimborne, to cancel the

orders for the imprisonment of

the Irish Volunteers, who were

held after the Easter Rising.

The Easter Rising, was an

armed insurrection in Ireland

during Easter Week, April 1916.

It was launched by Irish

Republicans to end the British

rule in Ireland and establish an

independent Irish Republic, while

the United Kingdom was heavily

engaged in World War 1.

Prof Frizelle was unaware about

his great grandfather’s letter and

only knew that his parents have

Irish heritage.

The fellowship he received

recognises his global leadership

It comes on the back of groundbreaking

research from Prof

Frizelle and his Otago University

Quake

exhibit hits

milestone

EIGHT YEARS since the first

earthquake rocked Christchurch,

a special exhibition has welcomed

it’s 250,000th visitor.

Jian Zhu, 22 and Erin Jin, 22

from Wellington were visitors

249,999 and 250,000 to Canterbury

Museum’s special exhibition,

Quake City.

Mr Zhu said he and Ms Jin

wanted to learn more about the

earthquakes, after they saw the

empty spaces around the central

city. The pair had an earthquake

experience of their own when the

2016 Kaikōura earthquake was felt

in Wellington.

The exhibition aimed to meet

the demand from businesses

and community groups, for an

attraction which told the story of

the earthquakes and helped bring

locals and tourists back to the

central city. It opened in February

2013 and more than 50,000 people

visited Quake City in its first year.

When the Cashel St site closed

for relocation to Durham St North

in June 2017, more than 190,000

visitors had been through.

The top of the spire of the Christ

Church Cathedral is part of the

display.

Event to focus on healing lakes

• By David Hill

WALK FOR the Planet has

gained some wheels to explore

two of New Zealand’s most

polluted lakes.

It is one year since the release

of the feature film Seven Rivers

Walking, based on Walk for

the Planet – 7 Rivers, 7 Weeks,

which explored seven iconic

Canterbury rivers.

Now concerned Cantabrians

plan to cycle and reflect on

Wairewa Lake Forsyth and Te

Waihora Lake Ellesmere between

October 5 and 7.

Walk for the Planet founder

Mark Gibson said the focus of

the weekend, known as Two

Lakes Healing, would be on

finding solutions, rather than

laying blame.

“Two Lakes Healing flows on

from and keeps alive the tradition

of 7 rivers, 7 weeks.

“Our focus is on how to heal

these lakes and how to create

momentum for a more hopeful

future and it’s about intentionally

moving through the landscape

softly, hence the cycling.

“With 7 rivers, 7 weeks it

required a huge time commitment,

so it was a bit fragmented,

so this is about focusing on one

weekend and the lakes would

have been too far to walk in one

weekend.”

Mr Gibson said planning the

event has brought together a

range of groups, including the

Waihora Ellesmere Trust and

Environment Canterbury, as

well as environmentalists, farmers,

scientists, politicians and

local Maori.

He said the journey would

begin on Friday evening at the

Wairewa Marae at Little River

and finish on Saturday night at

the Ngati Moki Marae at Taumutu,

Lake Ellesmere.

The journey begins and ends

at the two marae and that’s very

intentional because both of these

waterways are hugely important

to Ngai Tahu and it is essential

we hear their stories and their

visions for these waterways and

the best place to do that is on the

marae.”

The 68km cycle journey

from Little River to Taumutu

will be completed on Saturday

with regular stops to hear from

speakers, including Environment

Canterbury chairman

Steve Lowndes and the Waihora

Ellesmere Trust, which has been

working on projects to improve

the health of Lake Ellesmere.

Mr Gibson said there would

be plenty of time for participants

to reflect on the journey,

through drawing pictures,

taking photographs and writing

reflections and poetry, with the

intention of publishing a book

about the journey.

“For us, it’s about the interweaving

of the ecological restoration,

spirituality and building

community.”

Walk for the Planet – 7 Rivers,

7 Weeks was initiated by

the Methodist Church of New

Zealand and the church’s outgoing

vice-president Viv Whimster

is planning to travel from the

North Island to attend the weekend,

with the journey finishing

near the Hone Wetere Church,

which is important in the Methodist

church’s history.

Opinion

Readers respond

to last week’s sport

opinion piece, which

said the Christchurch

Boys’ High School v

Christ’s College UC

Championship final was

ruined by an ‘idiotic’

World Rugby rule

Readers respond to

an article regarding a

drone hovering over a

property in Clifton Hill

Kimberley Borell - I’ll

shoot it down. I saw one by

my backyard in Redcliffs, I

went to grab a rock but it flew

away.

Sara Teasdale - Hate

these things, someone is

probably using it to check

what people have in their

homes to assist a break-in.

Michael N Tania

Pluck - I bet the drones

are being used to assist with

break-ins.

Roxanne Oliver - Bad. If

I saw one or one dropped on

my property it’s gone burger.

Shouldn’t be allowed.

Jeremy Maxwell - Been

that way for ever one would

think the reporter has sour

grapes that his old high

school lost.

Jason Eager - Get a grip.

Both teams obviously knew

the rule before the game

started, these are kids, not

professionals. And apparently

it’s dangerous in terms of

injuries to play extra time.

David Dundas - Rock,

paper, scissors would have

done too. Best of three.

Murray Stewart -

Agree. Almost dumber than

that league finals setup.

Kim Browne - Agree.

Allan John Fidler - Do

you really think that is sillier

than the Super Rugby ladder

system?

Selwyn Sounds

Thursday September 6 2018

Local

News

Now

The Star

Fire rages, homes at risk

Break out your best dance moves

Currently on a break from

a 13-date United Kingdom

tour, pop artist Leo Sayer

spoke to reporter Matt

Salmons about new

albums, busy schedules

and his excitement for next

year’s Selwyn Sounds

BEST KNOWN for 1976 pop

tune You Make Me Feel Like

Dancing, English-born Leo Sayer

maintains a busy tour schedule.

Relaxing after his UK tour

with a family holiday in Italian

coastal town Porto Ercole with

partner Donatella, Sayer was

already looking to fit in an Australian

tour before the Selwyn

Sounds.

Perhaps surprisingly though,

it would not be the artist’s first

time in Lincoln.

Though he did not remember

much about it, he said he passed

by the area during a New Zealand

tour in the 1980s.

“I haven’t played a show there

but I’ve been in that part of the

world. It’s very pretty country,”

Sayer said.

Every year he said he pushed

his agent for New Zealand dates

and hoped the event in Lincoln

Domain could be a taster for a

future tour.

“It’s always a great audience

down there, I’m just sad I don’t

get there as much as I want.

When this came up I was really

excited.”

His last big event here was a

performance at Hawkes Bay winery

Mission Estate in 2014.

“We had a ball down there, it

was a really good one. I think the

angle was the Brits, but I’m more

of an Aussie these days.”

Based in the Southern Highlands

of New South Wales, and

down the road from Jimmy

Barnes, Sayer said he kept busy

working on his upcoming album

Selfie and his personal memoirs.

“My life’s very busy, but no

complaints. I just turned 70 in

May and it’s not getting any less

busy, I’m very happy.

There’s plenty to do when I’m

not on the road.”

His new album was “a oneman-band

thing” he said, but

had a big sound.

Manipulating the sounds and

developing the album himself

over five months was an enjoyable

challenge he said.

“I’m really happy with the

result.

“I’m a musician, I can never

not be writing. The ironic thing

is, everyone at the concerts wants

to hear the classics from the

catalogue.”

He was not sure if he would be

ready to showcase Selfie at Selwyn

Sounds, but he had been running

his band through the title track

of the album.

“Hopefully we can throw that

in, that would be really fun.”

As well as Sayer, former INXS

front man and Noiseworks singer

Jon Stevens, Eagle Rock writer

Ross Wilson, legendary Kiwi

artists Midge Marsden and Peter

Urlich are on the bill.

Hits such as Gutter Black, Blue

Lady and Walking in the Light

will be belted out by a who’s who

of the New Zealand music scene

known as The Golden Kiwis,

which includes Harry Lyon from

Hello Sailor and Rikki Morris

from Crocodiles.

•Selwyn Sounds will be

held on Saturday, March 2,

at Lincoln Domain. Tickets

are now on sale from

www.selwynsounds.co.nz

EXCITED: Leo Sayer says he

pushes his promoters for

New Zealand shows every

year and is excited to play

Selwyn Sounds next year.

$13.7m for Redcliffs School

REDCLIFFS SCHOOL

now has all the money it

needs to start its rebuild.

The Government announced

a further $13.7

million would be invested,

bringing the cost

of rebuilding the school to

$16 million.

Education Minister

Chris Hipkins said the

funding was in addition

to $62 million announced

for the Christchurch

School’s Rebuild Programme

in Budget 2018

QUICK AND EASY: New World Northwood is offering dinner boxes which

can be ordered online and collected in store.

New World’s easy

way to eat fresh

AS SHOPPER habits and

needs change, New World

Northwood is trialling

a complete online meal

solution.

Store owner Kathy

Frampton said its

reinventing the way it

helps customers eat - right

from how it sources the

product, how its displayed

and how customers buy it.

“We’re tapping into a

strong customer desire for

fresh, healthy food which

is available in all sorts of

formats – ready to eat,

ready to heat and ready to

‘add my own little bit of

magic’,” she said.

Customer response has

been positive to the freshly

made hot dinner boxes

which can be ordered

online then collected from

the store.

There is no waiting, no

cooking and no guilt as

these are wholesome meals

and was part of $332

million announced in the

same Budget to support

school infrastructure.

The funding I’m

announcing today will

bridge the gap between

what was originally

budgeted for Redcliffs

School in the rebuild

programme and what is

required now.”

In 2013, the school was

approved for funding in

the Christchurch School’s

Rebuild Programme to

made with love,” she said.

“We have a huge range of

fresh, delicious handmade

options for every type of

customer – a busy parent

needing to feed the family,

a seasoned cook looking

for inspiration, a business

organising catering for a

meeting or a nutritious

meal for someone living

alone.”

She said there is

something for everyone

and the meals are

reasonably priced.

The Hot Dinner Box is

available every Tuesday to

Sunday with a choice of

two hot meals, made fresh

each day by chef Daniel.

If you want to cook, but

need inspiration try the

Family Bag. For $25 or

under you get a complete

meal including the recipe

and ingredients for a quick

and tasty meal for four.

Or if you want to

have its facilities rebuilt

on the existing site.

However, a decision was

made to instead relocate

the school to Redcliffs

Park. Mr Hipkins said

demolition of buildings

on the old site was

expected to start next

month, with construction

of the new site slated to

start later in the year and

an estimated opening in

2020. “Once complete,

the school will have top

quality learning spaces.”

“gourmet” it up a bit, try

the ever-changing Love

Food Box – everything you

need in a box to create a

delicious dinner for two or

four.

The selection of

handmade pizzas, desserts,

deli food and meals-forone

is a mouth-watering

feast for the eyes.

When it comes to fresh,

there are deli salads or if

hot vegetables are your

thing – try a ready to heat

tray of potato mornay or

roast vegetables.

New World’s click and

collect online ordering

is easy for customers to

organise meals for the

week and know that they

are eating well.

Travel

Chinese tourists unlock South Island

ABOUT 600 million potential

Chinese visitors will now be able

to book holiday experiences in

the South Island through the

country’s leading travel app,

Fliggy.

Last week, Christchurch

Airport launched a South Island

store on the Chinese app, which

will promote regional tourism

and economic development.

Travellers will be able to plan

and book their travel through

Fliggy, before they leave home or

while they are travelling.

Westland Mayor Bruce

Smith said the plan is a boost to

businesses all over the region.

“It’s outgrowing every other

market. Tourism is worth $314

million of the GDP to Westland

every year,” he said.

The hope is that Fliggy will

encourage travellers to visit in the

slower winter months.

Fliggy is part of the Chinese

e-commerce giant Alibaba’s

digital eco-system and now

has destinations from all over

the South Island listed, giving

the 600 million potential users

the opportunity to book a New

Zealand getaway.

The platform allows them to

obtain information in Chinese

about the South Island and

also uses Alipay, China’s largest

mobile and online payment platform,

which will allow visitors to

pay for services in the way they

are most familiar with.

Said chief aeronautical and

commercial officer at Christchurch

Airport Justin Watson: “The

launch puts our South Island

attractions up amongst many

of the world’s top destinations,

helping Chinese travellers find

us, book where to stay and book

the fun they want to have while

they’re here.”

Representatives flew in from

China for the official launch last

Friday in Franz Josef.

The work is being done in association

with the South Island’s

13 regional tourism organisations

under what is known as the

SOUTH programme.

It is now working with more

than 800 businesses, representing

Discover the cool Franz Josef Glacier

Following the launch

of the South Island

store on China’s

leading travel app,

Fliggy, reporter Sophie

Cornish flew to the

West Coast courtesy

of Christchurch

Airport. She explored

the Franz Josef Glacier,

one of the most

popular attractions

fore landing on top of the glacier.

Experienced guides led the way

doing what they do on a daily

basis, cutting through the ice

with a pickaxe.

One guide, Andrew Malcolm,

said he spends most of his days

cutting tracks and steps to allow

tourists the opportunity to walk

safely across the glacier.

“No one really expects or

understands what it’s like to be

up here until you’re up here –

shock is the most common thing.

People are just so in awe of what’s

going on . . . it’s pretty incredible,”

he said.

WITH WATER dripping down

the ice walls onto our heads, we

held our breath, ignored our

claustrophobic fears and walked

one by one into a 30m crevasse in

the Franz Josef Glacier.

It was what we had been waiting

the entire three-hour hike for

– the main event.

Our jaws dropped and our

voices echoed as we climbed deep

into the glacier.

We walked until it was too narrow

to move any further.

These crevasses, formed as a

result of ice moving downhill,

and the spectacular blue caves are

what tourists from all over the

world flock to the South Island

to see.

Known internationally for

it’s natural beauty, the glacier

stretches more than 10km over

the Southern Alps and brings

hundreds of thousands of tourists

to the West Coast.

It is more unique than other

glaciers, being one of the most

accessible in the world.

With crampons attached to our

boots and walking sticks in hand,

we spent three hours hiking

across the 7000-year-old natural

attraction last Thursday.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

SLOW BRAISED BEEF

CHEEK RAGU WITH

PARPADELLE

Ingredients

1.3-5kg beef cheeks

salt and pepper

1 large onion, diced

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup diced carrot

1 cup red wine

2 cups beef stock

800gm crushed tomatoes

100-130gm tomato paste

3 bay leaves

1-2 teaspoons sugar, to taste

parpadelle (depending on how

many people you are serving)

parmesan, finely grated to serve

1/2 cup parsley, chopped

Instructions

Cut any large bits of fat off

the beef cheeks. Pat dry with a

paper towel and season generously

with salt and pepper.

Heat a large, heavy based pot

over high heat with a tablespoon

of olive oil. Add the beef

cheeks (one by one if they don’t

all fit on the bottom) and sear

on each side to brown all the

edges (a few minutes per side).

Remove and set aside.

In the same pot, turn down

the heat to low and add the onion

and garlic. Sautee for 5min,

stirring to avoid it catching on

the bottom.

Add the diced carrot and

cook gently for 10min until just

softened.

Add a splash of the red

wine and cook for a couple of

minutes. Add the rest of the red

wine, the beef stock, crushed

tomatoes, tomato paste and bay

leaves and stir to combine.

Add the seared beef back into

the sauce. Bring back to a simmer,

then cover and turn to a very low

heat and keep at a low simmer for

three hours. Remove the lid and

At

simmer for a further 30min or

until the beef cheeks are almost

falling apart.

Remove the beef from the

pot and set aside. Bring the

sauce to a rapid simmer for a

further 20min to thicken the

sauce. Taste and adjust sugar

for seasoning (this may depend

on what brand of canned tomatoes

you use as some have more

sugar than others)

Meanwhile, use two forks

to shred the beef into bite-size

pieces. Return to the sauce and

stir to combine.

At this point, you can either

serve the sauce, refrigerate until

the next day for even better

flavour, or freeze half for future

use.

Boil the pasta according to

packet instructions.

Meanwhile, heat the sauce

in a large frypan with a splash

of the pasta water to loosen if

it has been refrigerated or

frozen.

Add the cooked pasta to the

sauce and toss with tongs and

a serving spoon to thoroughly

coat the pasta in the ragu sauce.

Serve with grated parmesan

and finely chopped parsley.

Serve with fresh ciabatta and

oven roasted broccollini.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Grow great gazanias

Dive into salad season

• By Henri Ham

SPRING IS officially here. And,

while I do enjoy winter and I love

hearty winter soups and casseroles,

I’m really looking forward

to some lighter meals now that

salad season is right around the

corner.

If you also want to enjoy a tasty

salad or two during spring and

summer, it’s now time to plant

some leafy vegetables. I like to

stagger my planting of different

varieties from now right through

summer to ensure I always have

some fresh greens to graze on.

Endive is always in my first

line-up of salad plantings because

it’s so tasty and versatile. But also

because its super quick and easy

to grow.

Endive is a curly leafed lettuce

with slightly bitter leaves. Not to

be confused with Belgian endive,

which has white broader thicker

leaves (also called whitloof). And

also frisee, a similar milder variety

with fine lacy leaves.

Unlike other lettuces endive

doesn’t grow with a heart, which

means you can pick as it grows.

The leaves in the centre of endive

are sweeter and more delicate

than the outer leaves, which have

a slightly bitter taste.

Plant your seedlings in a welldrained

spot 5cm apart from each

other. I’ve just planted some in

pots to have close to the kitchen

as my soil was still a bit wet from

winter.

Now all there is to do is watch

out for snails and slugs, and keep

it watered. If you let your endive

dry out it will taste bitter and also

go to seed faster.

On a side note, when endive

goes to seed it grows a fabulous

purple flower. If you don’t need

the space straight away in your

garden let it go to seed and enjoy

this.

In four to six weeks you’ll be

cutting leaves for your salads.

Harvest the leaves from several

plants at once. That way you

encourage new growth from your

plants.

Got children? This is a great

job for them to be in charge of.

Let them go out at dinner time

TASTY: Endive

seedlings grow

well in pots.

Watch for slugs

and snails.

and select which leaves they want

for the salad.

And now for some serious

salad talk. I use an old salad hack

with endive. First I roughly chop

the inner leaves and then finely

slice the outer leaves. This gives

the illusion your salad has two

types of leaves in it. At the same

time adds great texture to your

salad.

Endive is heartier than other

lettuce greens, which makes it

delicious to use as a bed of greens

to place your grilled chicken or

fish on top of.

I find it works well with creamy

dressings, eggs and toasted nuts.

I sometimes like to use it as an

alternative for cos in my homemade

caesar salads. It’s also very

popular as a base for a classic

French bistro salad that has bacon

and egg on it.

If you’re already feeling ‘saladed

out’ before you begin, you might

be pleased to know it also tastes

great in a cheese toasted sandwich.

Add ham, cheese and endive

then toast.

LOOKING FOR some easy-care,

bright and beautiful flowers to lift

your garden spirits?

How about growing gazanias to

bring some fiery orange blooms

to your garden?

With names like kiss orange

flame, sunshine and kiss rose,

these guys are bold, bright and

best of all blooming easy to grow.

Sometimes called the African

daisy, gazanias have the same

shape as the English (common)

daisy. But their flowers are much

larger (up to 10cm across) and

come in vibrant colours like

orange, red and pink.

They can grow to 30cm high

and are best used for mass planting

in garden beds, as ornamental

ground cover and to edge lawns.

They also look great in pots, tubs

and window boxes.

The best thing about gazanias is

they survive with almost no care.

They’re very tolerant of poor,

dry and sandy soil. Making them

ideal for a house at the beach or

areas that you don’t get around to

watering much.

Gazania are super easy to plant.

Simply dig a small hole and space

each seedling 20cm apart.

Although they are drought

resistant you will get bigger and

more flowers if you do water

them. I always try to pinch off

fading flowers with my fingers to

encourage more to bloom.

In late winter or early spring,

give your gazania plants a prune

by cutting the foliage back to five

to 10cm above the ground. You

can do this with pruning shears

(another reason why they are

super easy to look after) and it

will revive the plant and bring on

new growth.

And now for a fun flower

fact. Gazania flowers close up at

night. Why? To reduce their risk

of freezing. And if it’s cloudy the

next day they won’t open fully.

COLOURFUL: If you water your gazanias you’ll get bigger

flowers..

Fire rages, homes at risk

Madagascan beauty with attitude

• By Shannon Hunt

WHILE THE indoor plant

Euphorbia milii, better known as

crown of thorns, can be described

as ‘prickly’ it is without doubt

beautiful and intriguing.

It is one of those plants likely to

prompt a lot of conversation with

friends and family from its sunny

vantage point in your lounge

or sunroom.

With its seriously spiky stem and

poisonous sap, place your crown

of thorns out of reach of children

and pets, and wear gloves when

attending to its branches and soil.

Other than that it is an easy indoor

plant to care for and, in the right

location, it will reward you with

gorgeous, waxy, red, yellow or pink

flowers almost all year round. If

you miss an occasional watering,

this hardy plant is unlikely to turn

up its toes.

It originates from a droughtresistant

country so is best

watered when dry as it is used to

surviving through difficult times

and challenging environments.

Whatever you do, though, do not

overwater it. It will not thank you

for it.

Native to Madagascar, the

history books suggest the crown

of thorns was introduced to the

Middle East in ancient times

oN sAle Now!

and its name is believed to have

originated from the stems being

used to adorn the head of Christ

at his crucifixion. If you compare

the spikes of your plant with those

in famous paintings of this event,

you will immediately see the

similarity.

Growing a crown of thorns plant

outdoors in a garden in Thailand

is regarded as good luck and they

claim to have grown the largest

specimen there. The more flowers

your plant produces every year

determines how much good luck

you will have in that year – so

growing lots of potted specimens

in your home could be a very

positive and rewarding move.

In New Zealand it is best grown

indoors in pots and needs at least

three hours of direct sunshine

each day. It performs best when

grown in free-draining cacti and

succulent mix.

It requires only an occasional

liquid feed throughout the year.

As the days get warmer and

the soil gets drier your plant

will need to be watered a little

more often; when it starts to

get cold again less watering

will be required, unless you

have a heat pump or an effective

fireplace that will dry your

plant out quickly. In this type of

atmosphere you need

to water the plant accordingly.

To test if your crown of thorns

needs to be watered, push your

finger into the potting mix and

if it comes out totally dry, take

the pot outside and give the soil a

soaking, making sure you do not

leave water in the saucer.

After two years’ growth, repot

your plant into a larger container

so it can continue to grow and

produce even more flowers and

make more ‘good luck’ for you

and your family.

PROPAGATION

If your friends and family are

making noises about wanting a

crown of thorns plant, it is very

easy to propagate this succulent

once it’s of a good size. Grab

your sharp secateurs and your

gardening gloves, cut off a branch

from the main stem with an

angular cut, remove two thirds

of the foliage and the thorns (do

not attempt this without good

protective gloves), pop the cut

end into cloning gel and plant it

into fine pumice or clean river

sand. Place a small plastic bag

over the foliage and put the plant

in your bathroom or near your

shower (not in it) where it is

humid, and wait until the roots

have developed. Then, pot.

and three hours of sun in a day.

From school rugby to NRL history

Fire rages, homes at risk

Isaako

top

points

scorer

• By Gordon Findlater

GROWING UP on the east side

of Christchurch post-earthquake

in a household struggling to

make ends meet is starting to

feel like a distant memory for the

highest-scoring rookie the NRL

has ever seen.

Six years ago Jamayne Isaako

had just finished his first season

of first XV rugby with Shirley

Boys’ High School. Now the

22-year-old has just finished the

NRL regular season as its top

points scorer and is the favourite

to win the Dally M rookie of the

year title.

More impressively his haul

of 233 points for the Brisbane

Broncos has seen him become

the highest scoring rookie player

in Australian rugby league’s 111-

year history.

On Sunday, Isaako’s Broncos

side host the St George Illawarra

Dragons in a must-win opening

week finals match. At the rate

Isaako is gaining accolades, helping

lead the Broncos to a seventh

premiership can’t be written off.

At the weekend the winger/

fullback recorded a 20-point

haul including a try, six conversions

and two penalty goals in

the Broncos’ 48-16 win over the

Manly Sea Eagles.

The effort saw him finish just

ahead of Sydney Roosters’ centre

Latrell Mitchell (228). Isaako also

finished the competition with

more conversions than any other

player (94), ahead of Melbourne

Storm star Cameron Smith (88).

“After I converted one of the

tries one of the guys said: ‘Latrell

scored a few points last night

you need to score as many as you

can’. It sort of got me worried

because I had missed a couple

of kicks before that . . . when I

scored the try and converted that

I had a feeling I was in front.”

The path to Isaako becoming

HISTORY-MAKER: Former first XV rugby

star Jamayne Isaako has now become the

NRL’s highest scoring rookie of all time.

EARLY DAYS: Isaako’s star potential as a teenager at Shirley Boys’ High School saw him

scouted by Australian clubs.

the NRL’s newest star began in

2012 when he was spotted by

a Cronulla Sharks scout while

playing for the SBHS first XV as

a year 11.

“I was playing at a time when

the earthquake had happened.

Footy was a chance for me to

move away from home and try to

make a name for myself and get

picked up. At the time my family

was struggling and I just wanted

to be one less mouth for my mum

and dad to feed,” said Isaako.

“I was playing at a time

when the earthquake had

happened . . . at the time

my family was struggling

and I just wanted to be one

less mouth for my mum

and dad to feed.”

– Jamayne Isaako

After impressing on a trial

with the Sharks he was signed

to a three-year deal the club.

However, before progressing

through the junior ranks he

returned to Christchurch due to

home sickness which saw him

play for the St Bede’s College

first XV in 2013 where he led the

team in points.

“I moved over on my own and

just found it really tough at one

stage . . . Cronulla came knocking

again and wanted me to go

back to Sydney. They promised

me a lot of things which never

really happened which led me to

come to Brisbane.”

Growing up in Aranui and

spending his early schooling

days at South New Brighton

School idolising Dan Carter and

the Crusaders, becoming a star

in the NRL with the Broncos is a

journey he couldn’t have imagined

at the time.

“It’s an unreal feeling. I’m just

blessed and grateful that I’m

able to do what I love week-in

week-out on the big stage and

everything is going really well at

the moment.”

Isaako’s first dabble in the 13-

man code was with the Aranui

Eagles. He played as a teenager

occasionally for his uncle’s

team when rugby commitments

didn’t interfere. He has now

recently signed a new deal with

the Broncos for the next four

years, but is open to the idea of

returning to play union later in

his career.

“I would love to play rugby

[union] again. I wouldn’t mind

coming back home at some stage

in my career.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

Experienced boxers in national champs

Sam Watt

• By Jacob Page

CANTERBURY WILL have

plenty of experience in their

squad when they compete at the

New Zealand Amateur Boxing

Championships at the Hornby

Workingmen’s Club next month.

So far 15 of the Canterbury

squad have been confirmed to

compete at home for the first time

since 2010.

Box-offs are scheduled this

weekend to see who else makes

the selection criteria before the

event which runs from October

3 to 6.

The team includes four elite boxers

who will be out to defend the

national titles they won in 2017.

Papanui’s Sam Watt will look to

defend his 91kg-plus elite title as

will his clubmate Ryan Entesse.

Riverside’s Sunny Teki-Clark

will look to do the same in the

elite 81kg class, while Redwood’s

Rendz Remaneses will look to

go back-to-back in the elite 56kg

class.

Coach Mark Fuller said while

boxers could be added to the

squad depending on performances

at local events over the

next fortnight, he was happy with

how the team is shaping up.

“We want to make sure we

put on a show on our home turf

and this team is certainly strong

enough to do it,” he said.

Fuller said Canterbury was

considered one of the toughest

teams to get into given the strict

selection criteria which encompassed

bouts at a club, national

and international level.

“We’ve never been one to go

and just make up the numbers,

Fuller said. “We always want to be

the most successful team there.

Fuller said the team would train

together in the coming weeks

once the squad was finalised.

Stadium name – boring

WE’RE NOW almost a month deep into

now referring to the former AMI Stadium

as Christchurch Stadium, but with no

naming rights in play now surely we can

come up with something more fitting to

describe our outdated temporary stadium.

Yes, we’ve now entered that silly season

where we have to adjust to a new name,

much like when we went from Lancaster

Park to Jade Stadium, and then to AMI

Stadium.

Lancaster Park had history associated

with its name and then the money came

along.

However, what history is associated

with the name Christchurch Stadium?

Considering this is supposed to be

a temporary thing and a central city

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

stadium of the future is on the cards can

we not have a bit of fun while we put up

with the cold den we’ve looked forward

to watching great rugby at over the past

seven years?

Like we did with the future of the city

following the earthquakes can we not

put the name of our outdated temporary

stadium to the people . . . The Marquee,

The Pop Up, Goodwill and Blu Tack, Give

Us a New One Stadium or even Rugby

League Park - it was the original name

and at least has history. Food for thought.

The squad is:

91kg-plus (Papanui), Trevor

Swainson 91kg (Woolston),

Sunny Teki-Clark 81kg (Riverside),

Alex Oliver 75kg (Riverside),

LONG WAIT: The Canterbury Country rugby team celebrate their 31-20 win

over Canterbury Metro which saw them win the Craw Shield for the first

time in 10 years.

Victor makes a late

arrival at celebrations

• By Jacob Page

CANTERBURY Country

had a beer with their

newest addition, Victor at

training on Monday night.

Victor is the affectionate

nickname of the Victor

Craw Shield which the

team won back from

Canterbury Metro for the

first time in 10 years after

31-20 victory at Kaiapoi on

Sunday.

In an odd twist, the

shield never made it to

Kaiapoi which meant

Canterbury Country’s

celebratory team photo

had no silverware.

Country coach Nigel

Smith said the shield was

delivered from Rugby

Park to the team in time

for their Monday night

training.

“We had a beer as a

team with Victor (on

Monday night),” he said.

Canterbury Metro assistant

coach Dan O’Brien

said his team thought

Canterbury Rugby Union

board members were

bringing it with them and

it wasn’t until the conclusion

of the game.

Smith said it was a frustrating

post-match moment

to realise the shield

was not at the ground.

“Perhaps Metro were

confident of keeping it

so they didn’t feel they

needed to have it with

them,” Smith said.

Metro assistant coach

Daniel O’Brien said it was

not a case of sour grapes

on the part of his team

and instead blamed the

Canterbury Rugby Union

board.

“Usually it’s a member

of the board who brings

it out and our manager

certainly said to us postmatch

that there should

have been a shield there at

the game.”

Ellesmere president Stu

Boon, who is also on the

CRU board, said it was a

case of one group thinking

another group had the

shield with them.

“Usually it is the manager

of the current holders

who makes sure that it

gets to the game but I

was told Metro thought a

couple of board members

had it with them and were

heading to the game.

“A bit of confusion all

round,” he said.

Barnes back in style

• By Gordon Findlater

RYAN BARNES is proving to be

a match winner for Christchurch

Boys’ High School after thinking

he had played his last match for

the school following a tear to his

hamstring in May.

On Saturday the 17-year-old

winger scored a hat-trick as

CBHS defeated Otago Boys’ High

School 29-26.

A week earlier he returned for

the first time since the hamstring

tear when he came off the bench

to score a crucial late try to level

their final with Christ’s College

18-18 and grant CBHS the UC

Championship.

“I was told I was probably going

to need surgery and it would

be quite a long term thing,” said

Barnes.

“Initially I was just grateful

to be able to play for Boys’ High

again so it was pretty unreal

really.”

Barnes’ hat-trick in his 40th

match for the first XV will see

CBHS travel to Palmerston

North today to compete at the 1st

XV National Championships for

the first time since 2014.

“Obviously in the last few years

the South Island representatives

have struggled up there, but

there’s definitely a belief within

our team that we have the ability

to go up there and win,” said

Barnes.

The South Island win also

came with a sense of justice

for Barnes after losing 31-36 to

Southland Boys’ High School last

year when SBHS scored a winning

try many believe came well

after the full-time whistle should

have been blown.

It’s not just on the rugby field

Great beer,

great food and

great service

that Barnes’ has had success.

In 2016 Barnes qualified for

the final of the final of the senior

boys 100m sprint at the New

Zealand secondary schools athletics

championships.

He was the youngest athlete in

the field where he placed seventh.

He also recorded a personal

best of 11.15secs over 100m last

year.

Barnes admits that athletics is

supplementary to his rugby commitments.

However, he plans to get on

the track this coming summer

and believes there are parallels

between the two sports.

“With me not being the biggest

guy out there on the field I

need to try and find some other

strengths so my athletics and

sprinting in particular are a

massive help on the field,” said

Barnes.

He now hopes that speed can

come in handy in what will be

his biggest match for the school.

CBHS play Napier Boys’ High

School tomorrow for a chance to

play in Sunday’s final.

CBHS have won three national

titles which came on the trot

from 2004-2006.

Meanwhile, Rangiora High

School will compete in the top

four co-ed national finals after

defeating Gore High School 42-

17 at the weekend.

They play Feilding High School

on Thursday for a chance to

progress to Sunday’s final.

Canty U19 squad named

CANTERBURY’S RUGBY stars

of the future head to Taupo

this weekend to compete in the

Jock Hobbs Memorial National

under-19 Tournament.

Head coach Grant Keenan has

named his 25-man squad for

the tournament, which will see

Canterbury take on Auckland

first up on Sunday.

Canterbury finished as top

qualifier in the southern region

tournament, following wins

in recent weeks over Otago,

Southland and Tasman. They

will compete in the top eight

premiership division for the

Graham Mourie Cup.

The last time Canterbury lifted

the cup was in 2015, when they

defeated Waikato 41-35.

“It was a tough decision to

narrow down the squad to 25

names, but this is an exceptional

group of young players who

we know will wear the red and

black jersey with a lot of pride in

Taupo.”

The under-19 is a challenging

tournament with New Zealand’s

future rugby stars on show, but

this group are really embracing

that challenge and we look

forward to seeing what we can

achieve together on the national

stage this year,” Keenan said.

The tournament wraps up on

September 15, after matches at

Owen Delany Park in Taupo.

WHEN CANTERBURY

brushed aside Manawatu 57-7

in 2015, Rob Thompson was the

man of the moment running in

three tries.

But tonight he will be one of

the biggest threats the red and

blacks have to address.

The centre ,who earned 49

caps for Canterbury, has been a

standout for Manawatu in the

opening three rounds of the

Mitre 10 Cup, having scored on

every occasion since making the

move north.

When the two sides do battle

at Christchurch Stadium tonight

Canterbury coach Joe Maddock

will be hoping his former player

isn’t at his best.

“He’s a great player and

we’ve seen what he’s done from

Canterbury in the past and

we’ve seen what he can do for

Manawatu in the opening three

games so he’s certainly someone

we’ll have to keep an eye on,”

said Maddock.

Meanwhile, Maddock’s

midfield has been reinforced

for tonight with the return

of Scottish international Phil

Burleigh who makes his return

after sustaining a knee injury in

Canterbury’s week one loss to

Tasman.

“Experience is a big part

News

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

Warriors wary of Panthers enforcer

ONE MAN alone doesn’t make

a team but the Warriors openly

acknowledge Penrith enforcer

Viliame Kikau isn’t your

ordinary, off-the-shelf type of

rugby league player either.

The Warriors insist they won’t

specifically target the 119kg,

1.95m Fijian behemoth in Saturday

night’s elimination final

at ANZ Stadium even if they are

very aware of the myriad dangers

the Panthers second-rower poses.

And well the Warriors might

be wary. Kikau set up a try,

scored another and made a

general nuisance of himself racking

up 174m and seven tackle

breaks in the 36-4 thrashing of

the Warriors in July, a night that

opposing centre Peta Hiku in

particular is keen to forget.

Kikau wasn’t quite as effective

(91 run metres, six tackle breaks

and 29 tackles made) when the

Auckland club avenged that

round-17 loss with a 36-16 win at

Mt Smart Stadium in round 24.

He even displayed a human

side by coughing up a bomb that

led to David Fusitu’a crashing

over early in the second half, a

try that effectively snuffed out a

short-lived Panthers comeback.

But Kikau’s average of 128m

in his 23 Telstra Premiership

appearances this season, coupled

with 100 tackle breaks (at 4.34

per game), will make him a

marked man as counterpart Tohu

Harris recognised.

“He certainly is one of the biggest

challenges in the comp,” said

Harris.

“He hasn’t just shown flashes

throughout the season, he’s done

it consistently throughout the

season, you know, tearing sides

apart and showing how dangerous

he is.

“He’s definitely someone we

have to prepare for but in saying

that they’ve got a lot of players

who can do damage to footy sides

so we’ve all got to be on the ball

and all defend as well as we can

to stop the other team.”

Warriors coach Stephen

Kearney offered a “not

necessarily, no” retort when

asked if there was a blueprint to

specifically target the left-edge

destroyer. But he agreed Kikau

needed to be watched – just like

many of his Panthers teammates.

Turbo boost for Kona

• By Ross Kiddie

HYUNDAI New Zealand

has been well served by

an extensive sport utility

vehicle range.

For many years it has had

Santa Fe, IX crossover, and

Tucson, all have sold with

considerable success in

New Zealand. Not a company

to rest on its laurels,

Hyundai realised the need

to explore other segments

of the SUV market, and

just recently a newcomer

landed – the Kona.

The Kona is a small SUV,

not tiny, but it is a car for

those who like to travel

light. It arrives here in two

four-cylinder petrol engine

variations a 2-litre normally

aspirated unit and a 1.6-litre

turbocharged unit. The latter

arrives with four-wheeldrive,

the 2-litre model is

front wheel-drive only.

Prices start at $31,990 for

the 2-litre, an extra $5000

will buy you into a high

grade Elite version, while

the turbocharged models

sit at $36,990 and $41,990

(Elite). At the time of print,

Hyundai New Zealand has

just launched a fully electric

Kona, pricing for the

EV is yet to be announced.

The subject of this evaluation

is the Elite turbo which

drives through a sevenshift

dual clutch automatic

gearbox. Hyundai claims

130kW at just 5500rpm, if

you add in 265Nm all of

the way from 1500rpm to

4500rpm, it’s easy to fathom

out how free-revving

and willing the engine is

through the mid-range.

• By Ross Kiddie

THE fifth-generation Subaru

Forester sport utility

vehicle will launch in New

Zealand later this month.

It will arrive with the

choice of three variants all

with a 2.5-litre, four-cylinder

petrol engine. They are

Sport ($39,990), Sport Plus

($44,990) and Premium

($47,490).

The new Forester debuts

with Subaru’s first-ever

driver monitoring system

which sets driver preferences

for seat position, door

mirrors, air conditioning

and some instrument displays

using facial recognition

technology.

Within seconds of sitting

inside the Forester,

the system recognises the

driver and automatically

adjusts the car to his or her

settings. Up to five drivers

can be registered.

HYUNDAI KONA: Normally-aspirated or

turbocharged engine option.

• Price – Hyundai Kona

Elite turbo, $41,990

• Dimensions – Length,

That also has a complementary

effect on fuel

usage. Rated at 6.7-litre per

100km (42mpg), the Kona

is a bit of a fuel miser; well,

at around 1500kg there’s

not a lot of weight to drag

around, so that is beneficial.

Against the stopwatch

the Kona turbo will cut

out a standstill to 100km/h

time of 8sec, and will leap

through a highway overtake

in 4.8sec.

The Kona feelts taut and

tightly connected to the

road through the steering.

That’s an attribute I rate

highly in any car, and it

That aside, the Kona in

Success for Christchurch

Mitsubishi dealership

• By Ross Kiddie

A NEW seven-seat sport

utility vehicle will launch

here in October.

Named Acadia, it will

be the first time Holden

New Zealand has offered a

GMC-based product in its

line-up.

Acadia boasts all the

American presence and

While Acadia is unashamedly

programmes, Holden

engineers have focused on

delivering the direct steering

resonates with Kiwis.

Acadia is driven by a

Zealand has demonstrated

strength in depth across its

dealership network over

months of rigorous testing.

The country’s top individuals

from service, parts

and sales departments went

head-to-head in this year’s

final and it was Christchurch

Mitsubishi which

set the gold standard.

Twelve finalists, who

emerged from four qualifying

rounds held throughout

the year, were put through

their paces in four categories

in Queenstown on

August 27. The sales category

was a new addition

this year, included to allow

sales staff to showcase their

skills and benchmark their

performance against their

colleagues in other parts of

the country.

The overall winners were:

Best service technician –

Hamish McDonald (Christchurch

Mitsubishi); best

service adviser – Michael

Strudwick (Mexted Mitsubishi);

best parts adviser

– Steve Bamber (Christchurch

Mitsubishi); best

vehicle sales professional

– Tania Watene (Christchurch

Mitsubishi).

MMNZ general manager

aftersales, Noel Comerford,

said that while the competition

was extremely tight,

the representatives from

Christchurch Mitsubishi

had demonstrated exceptionally

high expertise and

consistency across all areas

to take a near-clean sweep.

“It was great to see all of

our finalists performing at

such a high level,” said Mr

Comerford.

“What can we say about

Christchurch? What an impressive

result from a single

dealership. Each individual

won on their own merits,

although it is clear that, as a

team, they share a common

goal of exceptional customer

service – and a drive

to deliver on that.’’

Each of the finalists was

required to complete a theory

examination first, before

demonstrating their skills in

a practical challenge.

Strudwick, will compete

against the very best from

around the world in a

Christchurch Real Estate Agencies

take out 3 awards at 2018 REINZ

Awards for Excellence

Christchurch real estate agencies took out

three awards at last night’s 2018 REINZ

Awards for Excellence – the industry’s

annual national awards evening.

Awards won by Christchurch agencies

included:

• Large Residential Office: Bayleys Whalan

and Partners Christchurch

• Medium Commercial and Industrial

Office: Colliers International South Island

Commercial Christchurch

• Rural Salesperson: Ben Turner – Bayleys

Whalan and Partners Christchurch.

Bindi Norwell, Chief Executive at REINZ

says: “Every year we have a significant

number of high-calibre entries, many of

whom have won their own local or agency

awards making for some extremely tough

Show Homes - the ultimate way to shop around

In Christchurch and the surrounding rural districts we are blessed

with an extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle featuring all the latest

in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a

way nothing else can. You can absorb

the ambiance they present, admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology all in one place, under

a roof that you may just select for your

new home.

At a show home you can ask

questions, take notes and compare them

to other builders’ presentations. You

don’t have to visualise or imagine full

scale from a photo in a glossy, you can

simply see at a glance, often instinctively,

features you like, things you would avoid

and clever innovation that you never

would have thought of.

Best of all you will see the building

competition. To be the best of the best is a

noteworthy achievement.

“Congratulations to all our finalists and

winners for your achievements – these

accomplishments are something you

can be extremely proud of. Thank you for

helping to raise the bar of the real estate

industry and for all your hard work,” she

concludes.

The 2018 REINZ Awards for Excellence

were held at the Cordis Auckland and

saw 42 awards handed out to agents from

different sectors of the industry. The full list

of awards and their recipients is available

below.

companies’ attention to detail, from

design, construction and finish through

to interior decor, outdoor living and

landscaping.

Show homes are the perfect way to

get a good idea of pricing, discover what

is good quality and value, learn about

superior use of space, future-proofing,

ongoing maintenance and long term

returns. So what are you waiting for?
