for new

Anglican

diocese

• By Ashleigh Monk

A BREAKAWAY Anglican

diocese could be established

in the wake of the same-sex

marriage blessings saga.

Christchurch vicar Reverend

Andy Carley of St Paul's in

Papanui has revealed he will

join with other parish clerics

from across the country

to establish a new national

diocese.

He said nine clergy from

seven parishes in Canterbury

had resigned and would start

to form the diocese, separate

from the synod of the Anglican

Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand

and Polynesia.

The parishes are St John's

Latimer Square, St Stephen's in

Shirley, St John's in Woolston,

St Saviour's and St Nicholas in

Barrington, St Christopher's

in Avonhead and St Mark's in

Rakaia.

"We will be joining together

with other clergy and parishes

from around New Zealand

to establish a new extraprovincial

Anglican diocese,

one recognised by the majority

of the world's Anglicans, but is

separate from the current New

Zealand Anglican diocese," he

said. •Turn to page 4

Bu the university’s dean of

Said Canterbury University

spokeswoman Margaret Agnew:

“UC cannot respond to allegations

that are before the police.”

She referred the questions

New library to open under budget

• By Julia Evans

THE NEW $100 million central

city library Turanga is projected

to come in more than $500,000

under budget.

“However, with all capital

projects, the exact budget costs

won’t be known until the project

is closed,” city council manager

capital delivery major facilities

Alistair Pearson said.

Mr Pearson said it is because

of the “procurement approach”

used.

“Which involved strategic

market engagement workshops

with the tier one construction

companies looking to bid on

the delivery of the library, the

careful project management and

working closely with the development

partners.”

The library is set to open on

October 12, though the build has

not come without hitches.

The project was delayed due

to problems getting materials

from overseas. Its budget also

increased over its five years

of planning by $10 million to

increase its size.

The city council also received

criticism for going over budget

on the restoration of the town

hall by $7.5 million.

Clergy signal move for new diocese

•From page 1

The Anglican Diocese of

Christchurch and the synod

of the Anglican Church of

Aotearoa, New Zealand and

Polynesia declined to comment

on the matter.

St John's Latimer Square, St

Stephen's, St John's, St Saviour's

and St Nicholas, St Christopher's

and St Mark's were

contacted for comment but did

not respond.

At the beginning of September,

the St Paul's congregation

voted on whether to follow Rev

Carley in leaving the church,

with 70 per cent voting to stay

even if they did not agree with

same-sex marriage blessings.

"It was quite clear during our

voting process that the vast

majority of the parish do not

support the decision of general

synod on this matter," he said.

"But I understand that leaving

a church that you have been

a part of for many decades is

a terribly hard thing to do, especially

when you're elderly, so I

wish them all the best."

The Anglican synod voted to

allow same-sex marriage blessings

in May, which Rev Carley

said was "a step in the wrong

direction."

"This isn't some antihomosexual

thing, after all

the Bible also rules out extramarital

affairs, pornography

and so on, it's just that the

Bible has a somewhat narrower

definition of what is acceptable

practice and what is not

currently accepted by our

western culture."

Christchurch Diocesan and

Anglican Centre manager Edwin

Boyce said it was good that

most of the St Paul's members

were staying, even if they didn't

believe in same-sex marriage

blessings.

"It's sad that the vicar is

leaving, but likewise it's good

news that so many of the

congregation are actually

staying."

He said finding a new vicar to

take Rev Carley's place would

take up to six months.

An interim priest will be

appointed until a new vicar can

be found.

BREAKAWAY: Reverend

Andy Carley is planning

to form a new Anglican

diocese with other clergy

from across the country.

Fire rages, homes at risk

‘We’ll cut your head off’ – arborists

A young mum was left fearing for her life

after complaining about door-knocking

arborists. Anan Zaki reports

A YOUNG mum says she was

terrified after being threatened

with beheading for exposing

what she believed were bogus tree

cutters on social media.

The threat led to police

intervention and now the two

offenders, both women, say they

are sorry for the message on Facebook

and the terror it caused.

Police say it is another example

of threats being made on social

media which can have terrifying

affects for the victim.

The incident happened about

two weeks ago when a group

calling themselves 4 Seasons

Tree Lopping Services were

door knocking for business in

Halswell.

The young mum, who did not

want to be identified, believed

they were not a genuine company

after she viewed them on security

camera footage looking around

the front of her property.

Her partner had earlier told

them to go away. The young

mum then posted images of the

group on the Halswell Community

page with a warning that

they “don’t look legit”.

That prompted a response

from the tree cutters in a private

message to the young mum: “We

know where you live. We’re coming

over for you motherf******

and cut your f****** head off.”

They followed that up with

another message stressing they

were a bona fide company.

The young mum told The Star:

They said they know where I live

and . . . I thought ‘oh my god I

think they are waiting for me at

my house’.”

Senior Constable Deb Smalley

said an investigation had determined

there was no danger to the

young mum and the beheading

threat was hollow.

She said the threat was a

“typical example of trash talk” on

social media.

Police had ordered the two

women responsible to apologise

to the young mum – which still

has not happened.

“It’s a couple of young women

talking nonsense who will be

held accountable for their actions,”

Senior Constable Smalley

said.

The young mum wants the pair

charged. One of the women who

posted the threat told The Star:

“I wasn’t happy that she put our

faces on social media. I didn’t

mean to say it but I was really

angry at the time.

DODGY: Two 4 Seasons

workers caught on camera

outside the young mother’s

house. The pair later

threatened a woman on

Typhoon nearly ruins bucket list

The Star has been

following the Hore

family’s bid to get

daughter Megan to every

Disneyland in the world.

Julia Evans reports on

her trip to Hong Kong

during a typhoon

NOTHING HAS quite gone to

plan for the Hore family in the

last year and their bucket list trip

to Hong Kong Disneyland was

no exception.

Megan Hore, the daughter

of well-known blind organist

Richard Hore, is battling bone

cancer and wants to go to every

Disneyland on the planet.

First to be ticked off was Hong

Kong after getting a pass out of

New Zealand for four days from

doctors.

But Megan’s mother Marilyn

said the trip was “very different

than planned” as they arrived

in Hong Kong on September 15

at the same time as Typhoon

Mangkhut.

“It ne20

ver rains with us, it just pours.”

The typhoon battered the

northern Philippines before it hit

Hong Kong.

HAPPIEST: Richard, Marilyn, Amy and Megan Hore at Hong Kong Disneyland.

“We spent our first two days

either locked in the hotel with

the typhoon doing its worst

outside, or walking in the

grounds as it was too dangerous

to venture much further,” Mrs

Hore said.

“You felt safe in the hotel. But

when they did things like put

towels over the windows and

sandbags outside to stop the rain

coming in, and there were cable

ties holding the doors closed,

that’s when you knew it was

bad.”

Winds clocked 175km/h

and waves of up to 13m were

recorded. Mrs Hore said trees

were ripped from their roots and

had flattened parts of the 2.5m

fence around the amusement

for the last two days. A number

of the rides were closed either

from damage or needed to be

deemed safe. Nevertheless we

had a ball.”

Mrs Hore said all the rides

Megan wanted to go on were

indoors so were not closed.

The family arrived back last

Thursday, but the run of bad

luck had not finished. Megan

started feeling sick on the plane

“We took immediate action to

Mental Health Week

starts on Monday.

Reporter Anan Zaki

talks to Robert Read,

the founder of a

successful online

mental health page,

about his work with

Let’s Chalk about

Mental Health and his

personal battle with

depression

ROBERT READ will never

forget the year 2013.

His only son, Slade, was born

in March that year. It was also

the year his life nearly came to

an end.

The date was October 19, 2013.

Most of the day passed

through uneventfully.

Mr Read had been struggling

to come to terms with

parenthood and the weight of

responsibility on his shoulders.

He spent the day “self-medicating”

with alcohol.

At the time, Mr Read had

no idea that depression was

eating away at him. He never

thought about why he was

constantly resorting to the

bottle.

It was about 7pm and Mr

LET’S TALK: Mental health advocate Robert Read draws messages of support in chalk at

Cathedral Square.

Read, then aged 25, sliced up a

pizza with a knife for dinner.

Before he ate, he went outside for

a cigarette.

“For whatever reason, I took

the knife with me and I sat on

my deck for the next five hours.”

For most of those five hours,

he held the knife hard against his

throat. Mr Read had decided that

his time was up.

“I wasn’t responding to texts,

calls, I wasn’t interacting with

anyone. I was just sitting there,

within myself basically screaming

that I’m done, I can’t take

this anymore, I’m a failure,” Mr

Read said.

But a friend, worried about

him not picking up his phone,

walked into the house as the

knife was still pressed against Mr

Read’s throat.

After witnessing the suicide

attempt, his friend rushed him

to Christchurch Hospital’s emergency

department.

“When we were there, the

treatment that I got was less than

satisfactory.

“Basically they said: ‘You’ve

got post-natal depression, here’s

a couple of pills and come back

in a couple months if you’re not

feeling better’.”

Mr Read’s reaction to that was

to do the worst.

“I thought, if you let me go

home tonight I’m finishing what

I started. Which they didn’t obviously

take seriously,” he said.

Mr Read was put into the care

of his family. He opened up to his

family about his mental health.

He finally got the professional

support he needed.

There was an impression from

the knife blade on me for twoand-a-half

weeks afterwards,”

Mr Read said.

After getting treatment

through medication and counselling

in 2014, Mr Read knew he

wasn’t alone.

He set up a Facebook page to

run a charity event called Suicide

Awareness and Prevention.

“I kind of came around and

was like, I need to do something

about this [suicide].”

But the event didn’t happen as

he’d hoped. He could not secure

a mental health charity who

wanted to accept money.

Respite care available now

If you’re planning a break and want your loved one to

receive the best possible care while you’re away, or they

need temporary care after surgery, we offer respite care.

Did you know you can also use your carer support allowance?

Right now the very best of respite care is available in

one of our beautifully appointed serviced apartments,

“I find it really funny now because

some of these same organisations

are begging for money,”

Mr Read said.

He believed mental health

charities didn’t want to benefit

from his event because of who he

was.

“I think it has to do with stature.

I think they were concerned

that I was some nobody, some

random Joe Bloggs. I had no

backing, no title.

“Without that, they were like,

this could be dodgy or something

like that,” Mr Read said.

After the unsuccessful attempt

at the event, he kept the Facebook

page, still titled Suicide Awareness

and Prevention.

People then started messaging

the page, asking if there was

somebody to talk to.

“I responded to them saying,

I’m not a professional but if you

just need someone to talk to, I’m

happy to talk.

“It’s just grown from there,” Mr

Read said.

The page now has more than

200,000 followers and receives

messages for help from all over

the world.

“People just want someone

to hear them out, and not just

ignore them,” Mr Read said.

Hundreds of people reach out

to the online page every day.

The very first thing we do is

we let the person talk, give them

the freedom and acknowledgement

that we are listening.”

Social media can be a great tool

if used right, Mr Read said.

“We’re just trying to show that

you can use social media in a way

that is positive.

“Professionals may think we’re

not trained, but I actually think

that experience is one of the most

powerful tools that is there,” he

said.

He recently launched the campaign

– Let’s Chalk about Mental

Health.

TRAGIC:

The chief

coroner

reported

that in

2017/18, 668

people died

by suicide in

the country.

It is the

fourth year

in a row

that the

suicide rate

increased.

Mr Read wants to change

the perceptions around mental

health and suicide.

The campaign is about writing

messages of support on footpaths

and public places, encouraging

people to be open about mental

health.

He also wants to raise awareness

about post-natal depression

in men.

“Some of the negative perceptions

are that you’re weak, you

need to get over it, especially with

men.

“Those statements can cause

more harm,” Mr Read said.

But he believed the culture

around mental health is improving.

There has been this massive

shift in New Zealand, where we

are talking more about it,

people are more accepting

and open about it,” Mr Read

said.

But there was still a lot of work

to do to normalise talking about

mental health issues, he said.

He reminded people going

through depression that things

can get better, and that suicide

was not the answer.

There has been a lot more

positives in my life since [my suicide

attempt], things that I would

have missed out on had I gone

through with it.”

One positive was seeing his son

Reflecting from his personal

is to talk about it, Mr Read

said.

“You may reach out to 10, 20

Film star gives advice to young actors

• By Sophie Cornish

JAY LAGA’AIA has starred

in police and legal dramas,

children’s shows, Broadway

musicals and Hollywood

blockbusters.

And yesterday, he was in

Christchurch to share his experiences

with young, budding actors

at Ara Institute of Canterbury’s

National Academy of Singing

and Dramatic Art.

He discussed the realities of

the industry and the “trials and

tribulations of being a working

actor,” he said.

While in Christchurch,

Laga’aia is also promoting his

latest role in comedic play, Peter

Pan Goes Wrong.

Laga’aia joked that his advice

to the students was simple – “get

another job.”

The last thing we need is these

young, eager, beautiful, talented

kids coming in, flooding the

market,” he said.

“But really, it’s great to listen to

the voice of the youth down here

and see how they are travelling

. . . you have to touch base with

those who are coming through.”

a number of Australian and New

Zealand TV shows and musicals.

He has been in Australia’s Water

Rats and Home and Away, New

Zealand legal drama Street Legal

and, more recently, his own children’s

show, Jay’s Jungle.

Laga’aia’s career started in 1982

as a musician. He played in a

band formed in South Auckland

called Adijah.

From there he went to Mercury

Theatre in Auckland, where he

says he “truly fell in love with

acting.”

“That’s where I started to

I could to be able to learn the

secrets about how to become a

great performer.”

Ceremony for unsung

suffrage campaigner

CHRISTCHURCH

CASINO’S

• By Philip Somerville

DESCENDANTS of

a foot soldier for the

suffrage movement have

met in Christchurch.

About 55 descendants

of Susanna Isherwood

gathered at All Saints

Anglican Church,

Burwood, last weekend,

marking, too, the 125th

anniversary of women’s

suffrage in New Zealand.

Mrs Isherwood who was

an unsung campaigner

for the suffrage movement,

went on to become

a woman of influence –

within her family, locally

and nationally.

“She was a resilient and

foresighted woman, who

turned her beliefs and

passions into practice,”

great-granddaughter

Alyson Howell, of Wellington,

said.

She was there, with

campaigner Kate Sheppard,

at the formation of

the Women’s Christian

Temperance Union

(1885) – from where

the push for women’s

suffrage came – the

Canterbury Women’s

Institute (1892), and

the National Council of

Women (1896).

“She was a loyal and

hard worker; thinking,

speaking, writing and

campaigning to make

New Zealand a better

place,” Mrs Howell, who

has researched a history

of Mrs Isherwood, said.

Whereas most of the

prominent figures of

the women’s movement

were well off, the same

could not be said of Mrs

Isherwood.

Her father, Aaron

Tanner, marked her birth

in Wales with an X, her

parents apparently

unable to write. Yet, Mrs

Isherwood won a Bible

as an 11-year-old for

When swans attack

Signs along Heathcote warn about risk

• By Julia Evans

TERRITORIAL swan

attacks have caused

warning signs to be

installed along the banks of

the Heathcote River.

City council manager

community parks Al

Hardy said signs have been

installed on Ernlea Tce

in Cashmere after swan

attacks in the area.

Cute sheep for display at A&P show

“We have installed

signage to make sure the

public is aware of the

swans. They are now in

place in the reserve,” Mr

Hardy said.

There are two versions of

the sign, he said.

“Warning: mute swans in

this area. May bite without

warning. Keep children

safe.” and “Caution: swans

may bite without warning.”

ADORABLE: The valais

blacknose sheep will

feature at the New

Zealand Agricultural

Show.

THEY HAVE been dubbed

the world’s cutest sheep –

and now valais blacknoses

will feature at the New

Zealand Agricultural Show.

The breed has been

described by breeders Sally

and Lindsay Strathdee as

“more like dogs than sheep.”

Mrs Strathdee, a former

midwife, spotted the breed

on the internet and was

smitten. They started

breeding the sheep after

moving from Christchurch

to Motueka.

The couple, and business

partner Christine Reed

from Wairarapa, imported

the animals as embryos

from top prize-winning

flocks in the United Kingdom,

becoming some of

the first New Zealanders to

do so.

Fallacy of China’s

“Debt Colonialism”

in Africa

The 2018 Beijing Summit of Forum on

China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) was

held on 3-4 September. It is a significant

milestone in the bilateral relations

between China and Africa. President

Xi Jinping proposed that China will

implement eight major initiatives and

provide 60 billion U.S. dollars of support

to African countries.

However, for some time China’s support

has been portrayed as a form of “new

colonialism” or “debt colonialism”. It is a

pity that I cannot find any sound proof

behind such accusations which sound

more like fabrication or ungrounded

doubt resulted from memory of what

European colonialists have done in the old

days. So what is the truth? We should let

the facts speak for themselves.

Let’s take a project as an example. It used

to take more than 10 hours to travel

from the Kenyan capital of Nairobi to

the African country’s major port city of

Mombasa. Now with the China-built

Madaraka Express, a 472-km standard

gauge railway (SGR), it shortens to a fivehour

ride. More importantly, this project

has boosted Kenya’s GDP by some 1.5

percent and has created tens of thousands

Kenyan jobs, significantly reducing

logistic costs and facilitating an upgrade

in the local workforce’s skills, helping the

African country firm up the foundation

for future growth, which is essential to

repaying the debt from development

financing.

Indeed, Chinese trade with Africa and

its investment in Africa has been rising

notably over recent years. Since the

establishment of the FOCAC in 2000,

the volume of trade between China and

Africa has increased 17 fold, and China’s

investment in Africa has increased by

more than 100 fold, reaching more than

100 billion dollars now, covering almost

every single country on the continent.

But that in no way means China is luring

any country into any kind of “debt trap.”

Few would disagree that funding is the

lifeblood of development. China has

been infusing badly needed blood into

Africa’s development. And by building

infrastructure and improving Africa’s

labour force, it will eventually help

the young continent create enough of

its own blood cells to sustain healthy

development.

In fact, Africa owes far more debt to

Western countries and institutions than

to China. China provided 114.4 billion

U.S. dollars in loans to Africa from

2000-2016, which accounted for a mere

1.8 percent of Africa’s total external debt.

Today, around 36 percent of African debt

is owned by the International Monetary

Fund and the World Bank. Secondly,

Chinese loans are mostly concessional,

with long maturities and low interest

rates. They are primarily aimed at helping

power the continent’s economic take-off

and long-term development, rather than

pursuing short-term steep returns. Thirdly,

Africa’s debt issue is to some extent

overblown. According to a UN report

released in April, the average debt-to-GDP

ratio among the countries of Africa is

32 percent. In comparison, the index in

some developed countries and emergingmarket

economies is 70 percent to 80

percent.

Given that, these “debt trap” assertions

are either ill-informed or ill-intended.

They might make headlines in some

newspapers, but they have no market

among those with clear eyes and sober

minds.

At FOCAC, African leaders dismissed

claims of a debt trap. South African

President Cyril Ramaphosa rebutted

claims that China was becoming

Africa’s new colonial power, saying

“there is no new colonialism in Africa,

as our detractors would have us believe”.

Rwandan President Paul Kagame, who

also holds the rotating chair of the

African Union, said the “debt trap” hype

is an attempt to discourage Africa-China

interaction. Gabon’s President Ali Bongo

Ondimba said, “both of us keep our

promises to each other, which has led to

the success of the relationships between

China and African countries, which

are sincere, direct, and full of trust and

respect.”

For decades, China has helped finance

and build for Africa 6500 km railways,

6200 km roads, 20 seaports, 20 bridges,

over 80 power plants, over 200 schools

and 80 plus stadiums. Since 2016, China

has provided over 10,000 government

scholarships to African countries per year,

and has trained 200,000 person times of

personnel for African countries over the

past three years. These efforts have greatly

boosted Africa’s capacity building, making

unique and important contribution

to Africa’s pursuit of self-sustainable

development. Chinese medical teams have

been working in Africa since 1960s and

have helped cure more than 300 million

patients. China-Africa cooperation is

open and transparent and excludes no

one. China stands ready to work with all

countries that care for Africa and leverage

its resources and advantages to help with

Africa’s development.

In end, the FOCAC Beijing Summit

will further strengthen Africa’s capacity

for self-sustainable development,

promote stronger China-Africa win-win

cooperation for common development,

and bring more benefits to all the peoples

of Africa and China.

Consul General in Christchurch)

Our People

The Star

Deborah McCormick

SCAPE director’s vision of art

Deborah McCormick is

the executive director

of SCAPE Public Art.

The trust installs freeto-view

contemporary

public art all around

the city, with a focus on

the annual seasons. Ms

McCormick has been

with the group since its

inception in 1998, and

talks to Sophie Cornish

about life, work and all

things art

What led you to this job and

how did the trust come about?

Yes, I created it. I started as a

graduate from the School of Fine

Arts at Canterbury University.

I was looking for a way into the

arts in Christchurch. I’d had an

exhibition of my own, where I

had arranged the sponsorship,

the materials and the fabrication.

I enjoyed the aspect of organising.

So I developed a proposal

for a one-off exhibition, which I

titled Art and Industry and took

it to city council. They connected

me with an experienced arts

administrator named Warren

Pringle. He had just returned

from the United Kingdom where

he had been an independent

producer and promoter. Like me,

he was looking for a way into the

arts scene in Christchurch. So

we got together, someone young

enthusiastic and someone with

experience, and set up the trust.

In those days it was called Art

and Industry Trust. It was about

matching the know-how, the

materials, services and support

of the business industry with artists,

to make these new artworks.

That hasn’t changed 20 years on.

How was your university

experience and did you grow up

in Christchurch?

I went to Christchurch Girls’

High School and loved it. I was

very keen on art, I loved going

after school to the art room and

PASSION: Deborah McCormick is the executive director of SCAPE Public Art.

I would spend all my time there

when I wasn’t doing hockey. I

was captain of the hockey team,

that was another of my passions.

My art teacher encouraged me to

apply to the School of Fine Arts

at Canterbury University, where

her husband was the head. The

first year at university was quite a

soul-searching year. It’s very different

from school. You are really

questioning yourself, the purpose

of your art, trying to find a topic

that has meaning to society. In

hindsight, I was very young and

should have done gap year. A

lot of the girls who started with

me didn’t continue. But I stuck

it out and loved it in the end and

decided I wanted to have a career

in the arts.

Did you always have an

interest in art as a career or did

you have other things in mind?

Three of my aunties are piano

teachers and they all tried to

teach me. I did try, but I am in

visual arts for a reason, I can’t

read music. I knew I wanted to

be involved in the arts. At some

point I wanted to be a pilot, and I

think I could still do that. I used

to tell people I wanted to be a

pilot so I could fly all my family

around the world for free. Maybe

that’s something I will do in my

semi-retirement, learn how to fly.

I grew up in a creative environment,

my mum was involved in

the local theatre group in Oxford.

She use to take me to rehearsals

and I was in some plays myself.

I did ballet too, there was always

art in my childhood. It was

something I felt comfortable in,

I could express myself. It gave

me a lot of joy. In my final year

of arts school I met the love of

my life, my husband. He was

11 years older than me and had

his own business here, and an

eight-year-old daughter. I wanted

to stay with him and knew I

needed to find something here in

Christchurch so I could pay off

my student loan.

The creation and

transformation of the trust

is a great story, but obviously

you must have faced some

challenges and hardships along

the way? Was there ever a time

where you wanted to give up?

No, I have never felt like I

haven’t been able to get up in the

morning and be excited about

my job. Obviously there are

many challenges to overcome,

funding is always an issue in the

arts. You have to be flexible. The

board is set up in a way that it

has really good financial oversight,

the generosity of people

is phenomenal. We have to put

our best foot forward every year

and continue to perform, so

people have confidence in what

we deliver. We have been lucky

to have people and sponsors that

support us. Some have been with

us from the very first project. It’s

like anything, you have to build

relationships. There were moments

after the earthquake, when

it was hard to pick up the pieces

and carry on. When we had no

city, no offices, we had to rethink

our whole programme.

Make daylight saving

life saving.

Protect your loved ones by checking your smoke alarms

when you put your clocks forward this weekend. If you don’t

have smoke alarms please get them installed right away.

on every corner

They were tough for everybody,

those times. It’s not what

happens, it’s how you deal with

it. You get better with experience,

managing risk, predicting,

sometimes the tough lessons are

the ones that make you stronger

and give you more insight.

Why public art? What impact

does it have?

Public art can be many things,

it can be interactive, you can play

with it or on it. When we did

our very first programme in the

year 2000, we got this piece of

work from Pauline Rhodes called

Ziggurat. It was a monument,

10m tall, it was like a pyramid,

shaped out of gabions. Kids used

to play on it and people loved to

climb to the top of. It was even

a grandstand for some nearby

sports fields. Public art has

many different genres or types.

Over the years we have certainly

produced most of the different

types. It could be a performance,

sculpture, a light show. It’s

about telling stories, it’s free and

anyone can engage with it, you

don’t need to go into a gallery.

It’s quite egalitarian, people can

love it or hate it. It helps people

to expand their thoughts, have

ideas that are different. If people

think in a different way that helps

with better relation in society,

more open-mindedness. People

should be encouraged to have a

discussion about art.

What is the most artistic

place you have travelled to

or somewhere that has really

inspired you?

I recently went to Bali and

I had never been before. The

culture and people there are

amazing. The nature, temples,

religion, art and culture right

throughout their community.

Last year I went on a tour with

the French Government to study

public art in Nantes. They have a

festival called Travel to Nantes.

They have public art which is

probably the closest model I’ve

seen to what we are doing here in

Christchurch. The festival kicks

off a new series of public art in

the city. They have a walkway

around the city. They call it the

green line and you walk and

follow the line through the city

and see amazing sculptures,

cuisine and festival activities.

What do you like to do when

you aren’t working?

I like to mountain-bike, ride

horses, do yoga, go to the gym.

I love gardening, I live in the

Waipara Valley. My house fell

down the hill in Clifton, so we

had to move our 10-year semiretirement

forward and go rural.

We have a small lifestyle block. I

also like to visit sculpture parks,

art galleries and concerts.

What is your favourite piece of

art in Christchurch right now?

I’ve got so many, it depends

on my mood. I drive past the

Fanfare sculpture in Belfast every

day. It lifts my spirit and changes

with the weather and moves

in the wind. It gives me a nice

all the art but that’s something

that I see every day.

If you weren’t in this job, what

would you be doing?

Doing something with horses.

I use to do eventing when I was

young, but I think I missed that

boat. Being in the New Zealand

equestrian team would be fun.

Tell me a little about your

husband, how did you meet?

I have been with him for 20

years. He is a podiatrist, a foot

specialist. He has his owns

private medical practice, called

PodiatryMed. I am very proud

of him, he fixes people’s sore feet

and helps them have a better

lifestyle. He’s into medicine,

which is quite a contrast to the

arts. He has been an amazing

supporter of me and knows a lot

about art now. We met through

mutual friends and it was kind of

love at first sight, to be honest.

What would you like to see in

the future for art, Christchurch

and SCAPE?

I’d like to see every street

corner with a piece of art on it.

I would like to see a city which

helps artists to be enabled to

work and sustain themselves. I

think it would be brilliant to have

a programme where every new

council development had a piece

of art in it. We have been asked

to work with new businesses to

put art in their forecourts or as

part of their developments. A city

full of art in every sense is what I

would like to see.

DIVERSE: A large range of products will be on display at

the 2018 Women’s Lifestyle Expo.

Women’s Lifestyle

Expo expected to

attract big turnout

UP TO 14,000 visitors are

expected to attend the Women’s

Lifestyle Expo being held in

Christchurch this weekend.

Taking place at Horncastle

Arena, it will see more than

200 companies exhibiting their

products and services to the

public. They will include large

and small businesses, with a

wide diversity of products from

food to fashion, artisan craft

and eco-friendly products being

displayed.

Event organiser Renee

Murray says it is an

opportunity, particularly for

companies that trade online,

to meet their customers face to

face and answer any questions

they might have.

“It makes it more personal

for them, for example if they

only use social media such as

Facebook to do business,” Ms

Murray says.

This year about 30 per cent of

the exhibitors will be new, while

others are regulars that exhibit

every year, or every second year,

she says.

“It’s a major marketing opportunity

for them.”

The annual expo is held in

centres across New Zealand,

apart from Auckland, with the

Christchurch event being one of

the biggest. It has been running

continuously in the city for

some 14 years.

In 2010, it was scheduled to

take place a few weeks after the

September 4, 2010, earthquake.

While some exhibitors had

been significantly affected by

the earthquake, the expo went

ahead, with the organisers

providing free entry to give

Christchurch people a boost

following the disaster.

The 2018 Women’s

Lifestyle Expo will be

held on Saturday and

Sunday, 10am to 5pm,

at Horncastle Arena,

Addington. Entry is $10,

with children under 12

free.

New full-time Tech jobs

created in NZ in the last year

*2017 TIN report

Looking for a career change? Tech is New Zealand’s third-largest export sector

and is growing fast, with over 9000 new jobs expected to be created over the

next two years*. To fuel this growth, NZ needs more people with a grounding

in tech to meet the rapid expansion within this exciting and varied area, which

crosses into many industries.

*NZ Tech Digital Skills Survey 2017

The SHIFT programme

SHIFT is an innovative industry-driven programme for those who are seeking a new career path who may not have a

tech background. Open to degree holders in any discipline, SHIFT learners have come from diverse backgrounds such

as medicine, philosophy, sociology, commerce, geography, marketing, engineering and humanities. Available in both

Christchurch and Dunedin, this one-year programme offers relevant and current content skills to ensure you are well

equipped to work within the tech area, where the skills you have learnt in previous work and study are highly valued.

Graduates outcome to date include an 85% employment rate.

Partnering with industry

SHIFT uses immersive studio-based learning and real-world industry experience to produce graduates with a solid

base of core computing skills, as well as communication and employability skills required in today’s collaborative

workplaces. SHIFT includes several opportunities to meet and work with local tech industry employers, and includes

industry visits, group projects designed and

mentored by industry, and a 200-hour industry

placement, where you work within the organisation

on a curated project to add value to your host, and

to showcase your capabilities.

Opportunities

With tech roles existing in nearly every area from

aviation to zoology, career possibilities are extensive.

Through the SHIFT programme, learners can focus

roles, such as business analyst, data scientist, web

designer, project manager, user experience designer,

technical writer, sales and client support . . . and the

list goes on.

SIGNAL’s SHIFT programme transitions graduates

from any discipline into tech. Many new and mature

graduates are considering tech as a viable and lucrative

career option, and this is increasing as the range

of roles within tech becomes more widely known.

Diversity of background and experiences is

welcomed in the tech sector. It is strongly recognised that it takes many viewpoints to best design products that meet

customer requirements, and tech firms are actively recruiting to address gender and ethnic imbalances across their

employees.

The next SHIFT intake commences Feb 2019 and scholarships are available.

Waltham: A suburb of contrasts

A new report shows

Waltham is the city’s

most diverse and

rapidly changing

suburb. Reporter

Julia Evans talks to

the people who live

there

ON ONE side of a fence cream

paint flakes off a sun-damaged

weatherboard 1920s villa.

The grass is brown and a rusted

scooter discarded on the porch

looks like it hasn’t been ridden

for years.

On the other side there are

six identical brick townhouses

standing to attention. No grass,

no scooter.

The only noticeable difference

are the cars parked outside.

This is Waltham – a suburb of

contrasts, character and change.

While the population has been

called “transient” in the new

Aspirations of Children and Youth

in Waltham city council report,

at its heart is a vibrant, diverse

and strong community. Whether

that be at the park, the school, the

community centre or the pub.

“Participants noted the caring,

resilient community and good

neighbours are valuable,” the

report said.

Leanne Ireland is the third

generation of her family to live in

her Waltham home.

Long-time resident Rex

Robinson calls himself the

“neighbourhood watch man.”

“I went to a meeting once, I

think. Nothing happens here.

Someone’s car got broken into a

while ago but that’s about it.”

He said all the area needs is

someone to dish out safety pamphlets

when they arrive.

There’s always a bit of trouble

everywhere. But it’s good here,

we’re happy. There’s no room for

crime, there are so many people

around here.”

“Plus, I give the kids lectures

at Halloween. When they come

knocking on our door, I tell

LONG-TERM: Leanne Ireland is the third generation of her

family to live in her Waltham home – her children are the

fourth.

Her now deceased grandparents

Gwendoline and Roy bought

the house when they first came to

Christchurch from Wales in the

early 1980s. The house was left in

her name when her grandparents

passed away.

Her father Malcolm also called

it home – he installed heating

and insulation into the cold brick

house when Ms Ireland was pregnant

with her first child.

“It is a connection to my

grandparents. But since they’ve

moved out we’ve done some

renovations and I’ve made it my

them to make sure they don’t

grow up to be criminals,” Mr

Robinson said.

He said there were a lot of

children in the area these days,

but he puts that down to the

area’s rapid growth following

the earthquake.

Waltham has become more

densely populated since the

earthquakes with blocks of flats

and townhouses springing up

daily.

“It’s diverse. We have a German

guy next door. It makes it

interesting.”

Although he said the area

doesn’t get much publicity –

own. Sometimes I think you can

still feel them around . . . it’s a

family space.”

Now Ms Ireland’s three

children Malachi, Isaiah and

Shardesha are the fourth

generation.

They’ve lived in the house all

their life – Isaiah and Shardesha

go to Waltham Primary School, a

five-minute walk away.

She said she’s seen the good and

the bad over the last two decades.

“I used to always pop into

the house when I was a kid. I

stayed the night all the time . . . I

“no news is good news.” The

report said Waltham has a higher

population of residents identifying

as of Maori descent, who are born

overseas and who speak English as

a second language than Christchurch

as a whole.

The local population has

almost experienced a boom

post-earthquake as a result of

housing intensification and the

proximity to the central city for

migrant workers.”

But the number of facilities

for young people had remained

the same. This likely resulted in

a strain on some facilities and

organisations.

remember the area was very rundown

then but there were always

good neighbours and people

around,” Ms Ireland said.

“It still is run-down and a

poorer area. Not a lot of people

know about it. When you talk

to people from other parts of

the city they go: ‘Waltham?

Where’s that?’ And you have to

tell them its close to Opawa and

Sydenham.”

But Ms Ireland said she would

not live in another part of the

city.

“It’s close to everywhere to get

to amenities . . . and the area is so

diverse. There’s older generations,

young people, young families, a

lot of children. Everyone’s here.”

The residents were much like

the houses.

“You have the old-style bungalows

and the new townhouses

right next to each other.”

Ms Ireland has been volunteering

at the Waltham Community

Cottage for the last four or five

years. She lost track.

“It’s a chance for me to give

back to the community. I was a

chef before I had my children so

I run the community lunches. I

get to provide healthy food and

home baking for those who don’t

otherwise get it.”

She said she would continue

supporting the area’s growth for

the foreseeable future and her

children enjoyed the neighbourhood

and school.

Fire rages, homes at risk

•From page 21

GORDON CADDIE has been

watching the area flourish for

the last 14 years from behind

the principal’s desk at Waltham

Primary School.

“I think a school in any area

is important. But we have such

a diverse community, it’s more

important. People know what

to expect when they come here

so we have a stabilising influence.”

The school was identified as the

most significant community asset

in the area by the city council.

“Participants reported that

Waltham Primary School is one

of the best community assets,”

the report said.

But its roll has ballooned by

85 per cent following the earthquakes.

“It only slowed down when the

Ministry of Education made us

put in an enrolment zone. We’ve

got no space for children from

out of zone at all, we’ve have to

turn families away, which is quite

difficult,” he said.

“Growth has its challenges

which come with it.”

He said the school reflects the

varied nature of the suburb.

There are industrial areas,

GROWING

UP: Gordon

Caddie has

been principal

of Waltham

Primary School

for 14 years.

Housing New Zealand houses,

a lot of immigrant families that

are renting, as well as older villas

. . . the school is the same. We’re

teaching children whose parents

and grandparents went to the

school as well as kids who have

been in New Zealand for two

days.”

Mr Caddie said Waltham has

a good future – but a little work

needed to be done first.

“We sat down and looked at

it and one of the biggest things

that needs to change is making

Waltham Park safer for young

families.”

It started out as a joke.

But the joke stuck and

from 1866 the south-eastern

suburb became known as

Waltham.

Charles Prince, a formerschool

master from the United

Kingdom, arrived in Lyttelton

in 1858.

By 1860 he had set up a

china shop named Sydenham

House and was advertising in

the Lyttelton Times – although

in 1867 he had filed for

bankruptcy.

From there Mr Prince set up

his 12-room boarding house,

called Waltham House. It was

built on Gasworks Rd, now

Waltham Rd.

In 1866 Mr Prince’s

tenants decided to play a

joke on their landlord and

set an advertisement to the

paper, which said they held a

meeting and decided to make

the area Waltham after their

house.

The ad appeared on October

27, 1866 and by 1870 Waltham

was a household name.

The name comes from the

area in Lincolnshire in the

United Kingdom, Waltham,

which literally translates to

village by the moor.

Sydenham was then also

named after Mr Prince’s

former china shop during the

late 1870s.

Waltham was originally

part of the Sydenham

Borough and was

amalgamated with the

Christchurch City Council in

1903.

Get on your bike during October

CHRISTCHURCH’S cycling

festival won national

recognition from the New

Zealand Transport Agency,

and this year’s event

co-ordinator is striving to

replicate last year’s success.

“Our city is on track to

become a world-leader in

high-standard, sustainable

transport,” said Biketober

co-ordinator Robert Fleming,

“and this festival serves

our increasing number of

cyclists.”

The aim of the monthlong

festival is to encourage

people to experience cycling,

showcasing it as a legitimate,

fun, and healthy way to travel

around the city, whether

for work or pleasure. The

extensive programme has

something for all riders, on all

bikes – guided and self-guided

rides, workshops, social events,

and the cornerstone NZ Bike

Expo weekend.

Mr Fleming acknowledges

that the expanding network

of safer cycling routes is

encouraging more people

to cycle. “We have already

witnessed a 20 per cent

increase in people riding bikes

in the city,” he said.

One previously hesitant

cyclist was city councillor Sara

Templeton, who did not feel

safe cycling on Christchurch

roads. Now, she regularly

commutes by bike.

Not only does Biketober

showcase that bikes are

practical and enjoyable for

any journey, it also serves

to breathe a fresh idea into

the city – that cycling can

be everyday transport.

Couple this with the dozens

of social and sport cycling

organisations within the city,

and that equates to a vibrant

pedalling community.

Local businesses are

also embracing the cycling

resurgence.

The Biketober Passport

(a month-long event where

cyclists visit and collect stamps

from participating firms, for

a chance to win prizes) has

seen a 250 per cent increase in

business involvement over last

year.

There’s even a one-day

challenge, the aim to visit all

the listed businesses inside five

hours.

The festival’s opening

occasion – Pedal into Spring

– on October 6 has a selection

of 12 themed biking routes in

and around the central city to

choose from, with cafés, shops,

playgrounds, art, and a family

treasure hunt all on offer, from

the seat of your bike.

Opinion

Welcoming the world

to Antarctica

THIS IS a very busy time

for Christchurch as we

celebrate the Antarctic

season opening.

It is our annual

opportunity as a city to

collectively thank and

engage with each of

the national Antarctic

programmes – New

Zealand, United States

Italy and Korea – and

the myriad of businesses

that operate out of

Christchurch by sea or by

air in support of research

and science on the ice.

And it’s an opportunity

to remind ourselves of how

precious our status is as

one of only five gateway

cities to Antarctica in the

world.

I will always remember

the first time I stepped

off the plane and onto

the ice. I had never before

experienced a moment

in my life that was truly

‘breathtaking’ in every

sense of the word.

It was a real privilege to

be able to visit Scott Base,

McMurdo Station and to

see the scientists in the

field.

What stood out for me

from the whole experience

was the vital importance of

the scientific research that

all the national Antarctic

programmes support.

Many of the future

challenges that climate

change will pose will be

more accurately predicted

and hopefully solved based

on that research.

That is why our support

of these programmes

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

is so precious. There

are a number of

events and exhibitions

happening around the

new season – including

heritage walks, a range

of talks and children’s

holiday programme

activities – which can be

found at https://www.

christchurchnz.com/

christchurch-the-gatewayto-antarctica/antarcticseason-opening/.

I’d like to invite people

to fully engage in our role

as an Antarctic gateway

city and to explore the

different opportunities

to participate in these

activities.

STUNNING: Christchurch is one of only five gateway cities to Antarctica in

the world.

KISS GUSTAV by Lisa Powers

Lisa Powers summarises

her upcoming photographic

art exhibition as a “veritable

Gold Rush”, referring to the

extravagant use of gold in the

paintings of Gustav Klimt which

inspired her new works.

“KISS GUSTAV is my homage

to Klimt and the Vienna

Secessionists of 1893 -1903 who

broke from traditional painting

and paved the way for modern

art,” she explains.

Powers uses Klimt as her

jumping off point, translating

his paintings into photographic

art, while remaining true and

recognisably Klimt. She directs

her models more as a film

director than a photographer,

suggesting scenes and emotions

for them to interpret. The

resulting images are ethereal,

enigmatic, a bit surrealistic and

always engaging.

Her chosen technique is shooting

with film then she adds textures

and layers.

Lisa is French-born but raised

in New York. She worked as

a commercial photographer

for nearly thirty years, winning

several prestigious awards

throughout her career.

In 2005, she relocated to New

Zealand where she currently

lives, and works primarily in Fine

Arts. “KISS GUSTAV” is her fourth

exhibition in New Zealand.

This area is ‘red zoned’ and as such requires

recognition of need for care as ground surfaces

Disrupting stream communities may hold the

secret to long-term restoration of waterways,

according to a UC student’s thesis.

The theory that disrupting waterways

highlights the weaknesses of unwanted

invertebrates living in the ecosystem, is being

tested by University of Canterbury (UC)

doctoral student Issie Barrett as part of a

BioHeritage Challenge project led by UC

researchers. The project focuses on restoring

degraded streams and rivers.

At UC’s Cass Field Station in Arthur’s Pass,

Issie has built a bespoke outdoor system

that artificially recreates freshwater stream

ecosystems. She fills separate sections of the

system with invertebrate and bug samples that

have been taken from a range of streams –

some healthy, some degraded and others that

are prone to flooding.

Eighty per cent of the sample stream

communities are then disrupted for 24 hours

with elements including nutrients, sediment

or a flood of water. This enables Issie to see

changes that the disruption causes to the

community of invertebrates living in each

water sample.

“For example, we could disrupt – or stress

– the stream with a flood which is likely

to get rid of snails because they have the

characteristic of not being able to swim,” Issie

says.

“Knowing how to get rid of snails is a good

thing because we don’t want them in a healthy

waterway. Getting rid of them frees up space

for more sensitive, desired species.”

She likens a healthy river – one that has a

diversity of bugs that are food for larger

organisms like fish – to a glass of rainbow

juice.

“When a river is stressed, only the hardiest

species like sedentary worms and snails can

survive – taking up all available space. My

theory is that we need to do something to

destabilise the community, removing the

biological advantage that worms and snails

have.”

Her trial is part of a project that is using

freshwater ecosystems as a model to test

how degraded ecosystems can be resistant

to disruptions – including those that aim to

restore them. The project is being led by UC

freshwater ecologists, Dr Helen Warburton

and Dr Catherine Febria, of UC’s College of

Science.

“An ecosystem’s ability to withstand and

recover from a disruption are commonly

associated with healthy communities.

However, degraded ecosystems can also be

resistant and resilient to disruptions, making

them very hard to restore,” Dr Warburton says.

“In New Zealand, many ecosystems are

degraded, having exceeded critical tipping

points that leave them locked in a resistant

state.”

The next stage of Issie’s trial is to extend the

length of time that the disruption is carried

out. The cause of the stress will then be

removed, to see if the stream sample can be

restored. In its third year, the trial will be

carried out in a real stream.

As the city is now chlorinating the drinking water people are looking

at home and work place options of filtration. Surveys are stating that

the public is tasting the difference in our current tap drinking water,

which has been said to remind people of the local swimming pool

rather than something they want to gulp down.

Tips for a Home Water Filter System:

1. What water do you want to filter?

If just drinking water look for a filter with a separate tap or a tap that

you can switch between filtering or not. This allows the filter to last

longer.

Whole kitchen system? Look for a filter you can use with your existing

tap. This will filter all of your water through the tap and will require

frequent replacement.

Whole house system? This allows for great tasting water from any

tap in the house as well as it will protect your fittings from hard water

issues and give you nice soft shower water.

2. Speed of the water flow.

Filling your water bottle can be very slow with some water filters, so

make sure to ask that question.

3. How often do the cartridges need to be replaced?

A filter system is like a printer and needs to have the cartridges

replaced. There are cheap filter systems but check the replacement

cartridge pricing because you could spend a heap replacing them

which would defeat the purpose of the cheaper system.

4. Looking for something that doesn’t cost too much but does the

job?

Look for a bench top filter. The filter sits on your bench rather than

underneath out of sight.

5. Look for a filter that doesn’t need an extra tap on the bench?

Look for a filter that uses your existing tap or a system with a tri flow

tap that gives you 3 options hot/ cold/ cold filtered water.

The dream of owning your own home

is very much part of the kiwi identity,

and it was previously an achievable goal.

It’s no surprise then that three quarters

of New Zealanders over 65 own their

own home. Part of this reality is that, for

many people, the family home is their

main asset and their wealth is tied up in

it. A high proportion rely on Government

Superannuation for their income and

can run into financial worries when

unexpected expenses arise.

An option for

consideration for those

who are asset rich

but cash poor is a

Reverse Mortgage

(also known as

a home equity

release mortgage). A

Reverse Mortgage is

a loan that is secured

by a mortgage over

your home. It differs

from a regular mortgage

in that there are no mandatory

repayments during the lifetime of the

loan. Instead, the capital and interest

owing builds up as a debt against the

equity in your house. The loan ends on

either the death of the borrower (or both

borrowers in the case of a couple) or

when the house over which the mortgage

has been granted is vacated by the

borrower moving into permanent care.

Reverse Mortgages also have a minimum

age criteria: you must be at least 60 before

you can apply for one.

Reverse Mortgages sound like a good

option - and they can be. However, careful

thought and robust discussion should be

REvERSE

mortgages

had before one makes the decision to take

out such a loan. You can use the money

for anything you want but it’s important

to explore all options available to you if

you find yourself needing money to cover

medical bills, maintenance costs and

those other unexpected costs that can pop

up out of the blue. We recommend that

you involve your family in the discussion,

and that you consider the full

obligations and consequences

under the loan. You’ll

want to make sure

you understand how

the interest rate is

determined, any

extra obligations you

may have in relation

to maintaining

the property, and

the impact a Reverse

Mortgage can have on

your estate (to list a few

considerations).

Part of the Reverse Mortgage process

requires that you receive legal advice

before signing the loan documents. Our

specialist Seniors Law Team has the

experience required to guide you through

this process from the outset: if you are

considering a Reverse Mortgage we are

here to help you discuss the advantages

and disadvantages from the moment you

contemplate it as an option. Give Phillipa

Shaw at Harmans a call on 03 352 2293

and we can make a time to sit down with

you and discuss your options.

We’ve all heard the old saying “If you don’t

know where you are going, how will you know

when you get there?” This saying is extremely

apt when it comes to thinking about your

retirement.

So it might be a good time to ask yourself a

few questions to help define your retirement

in clearer terms:

- What does ‘being retired’ mean to you?

- What would an average week in retirement

look like for you five years from now?

- What challenges do you see along the

way?

- What fears do you have

about this next phase of

life?

- What would you

like to accomplish for

yourself?

Your retirement will

be very different from

that of your parents. But

it will also be different

from that of your friends,

colleagues, or the people next

door. You need to define your

retirement in your own terms, not what

the experts – or your mates – say.

You also need to realise that retirement is a

transition, not a destination! Most retiring

baby boomers can expect to be ‘in retirement’

for at least 20 or 25 years – a long time in

anyone’s language.

None of us can truly control what those years

will be bring, but we can control our attitude

to them. The reality is that true zest for life

comes from within and can best be nurtured

by looking closely at your attitudes and view

of life, in order to discover the parts that

may require some change and intentional

rethinking.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

If you are going to make a commitment to live

each day to its fullest, you will want to define

what that means. Here are some points to

consider:

• Why do you want to get out of bed in the

morning?

vISUALISINg

tHE NExt

PHASE

of your life

• If you’ve made the commitment to challenge

yourself to do new things or to learn

new things, what kinds of

challenges will make you feel

good about who you are?

• What gives meaning

and purpose to your

life? When you assess

and claim your values

and sense of purpose

for the future, you move

toward happiness—and

seize the opportunity

to leave a meaningful

personal legacy.

The key is aligning your personal

purpose, vision, and values with the

activities and goals you choose to act on. With

this alignment, your achievements will bring

you real happiness—quite a different feeling

from working to satisfy someone else’s value

system.

If you’d like to check just how much you really

do understand about this phase of life, take

this quick quiz. You might be surprised at

some of the answers!

The answer to that

is, it’s no secret. It’s

exercise.

When we think of the

benefits of exercise, a few

common ones always spring to mind

– fat loss, increased energy, and strength and

muscle gains.

But the benefits of regular exercise and

physical activity reach much further than

this, with life-changing benefits extending

to prevention and management of some

prevalent conditions. If you have been

thinking about getting moving, it’s never too

late to start, adding years to your life.

Here are some common conditions where

exercise can have significant benefits for your

health and wellness:

COPD. Chronic obstructive pulmonary

disease (COPD) is the term used to cover

a range of respiratory conditions including

emphysema, chronic bronchitis and chronic

asthma. COPD affects one in six Kiwis. While

there is no cure for COPD, there are plenty

of ways to manage symptoms, and improve

quality of life.

Part of the treatment for this condition is

exercise. Even at low levels exercise has a

strengthening impact on respiratory and

muscular structures. If you have asthma or

another form of COPD, exercise should form

part of your treatment and be an important

part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Heart disease. Cardiovascular disease

(including heart, stroke and blood vessel

disease) is still the leading cause of death in

New Zealand, accounting for 33 per cent of

deaths annually. Every 90 minutes a New

Zealander dies from heart disease, with

172,000 New Zealanders currently living with

heart disease, and limited by its impacts.

Being active is recommended to assist

managing this disease as this can reduce the

risk of getting heart disease by 50 per cent,

with extra benefits gained by eating a healthy

diet and not smoking. Exercise can also lower

blood pressure, and assist with reducing

WHAt’S tHE

SECREt to

a long and

healthy life?

weight, which are

both risk factors for

heart disease.

Osteoporosis. As we age,

and as lifestyle and diseases

impact on our health, there can be

a loss of balance between new bone growth

and old bone breaking down, leading to a

loss in bone density. Once this loss reaches

a certain level a diagnosis of osteoporosis is

made.

A regular exercise programme is essential

for bone health. Specifically, weight- bearing

exercise offers the best defence. This includes

a number of sports, and lifting weights, as well

as using your bodyweight as resistance. While

activities such as cycling and swimming have a

range of health benefits, these activities are not

considered weight bearing.

Depression. In New Zealand, more than

half a million adults (16 per cent) have been

diagnosed with depression, bipolar disorder

and/or anxiety disorder at some point in their

life. This includes 14 per cent of adults that

have ever been diagnosed with depression, six

per cent with anxiety disorder, and one per

cent with bipolar disorder.

Little or no physical exercise can increase

the risk of depression, and a poor diet can

decrease the sense of wellbeing, so taking care

of yourself needs to be part of any wellness or

mental health plan.

There is a good reason why exercise is

recommended for improving mood.

Endorphins are the ‘happy hormones’ that the

body releases when moving. They contribute

to a feeling of wellness post exercise and

are released most effectively during long,

continuous workouts of moderate to high

intensity.

With so many benefits it’s really worthwhile

investing in yourself by getting active.

If you are struggling with motivation or

not sure where to start, help is available

through a network of appropriately qualified

and experienced REPs registered exercise

professionals located throughout New

Zealand.

By Ross Kiddie

If retirement is looming, or if you’ve already

reached retirement age, you could well be

looking to downsize your vehicle to something

that’s suitable for two, and something with just

a little more space for when the grandchildren

are in tow.

One such vehicle would be Ford’s EcoSport.

Don’t let the name fool you, it’s not that overly

sporty, but it is a sport utility vehicle which is

compact but is practical in every sense of the

word.

Sitting on the Feista platform, the EcoSport

is short at just 4.2m, but it translates its space

into useful internals.

Mechanically, the EcoSport isn’t complicated,

it drives out the front wheels only, but it does

have technology which is finding its way across

the wider Ford production system.

Notably, under the bonnet sits a newgeneration

three-cylinder turbocharged engine.

It must be noted that when EcoSport first

landed here it had a four-cylinder 1.5-litre unit,

but a recent model upgrade now includes the

three-potter, and by my reckoning it is a real

gem.

Ford claim 92kW and 170Nm,

these outputs are available at

6000rpm for power while

the torque spread is vast,

available all the way

from 1500rpm to

4500rm. The result

is strong underfoot

feel, and a torquey

response through

the mid-range. While

the engine has the

characteristic harmonics

associated only with

three-cylinder engines, it is

still smooth, and unless you are

really tuned into what is happening

under the bonnet you wouldn’t think anything

unusual was sitting there.

The engine is coupled to a six-speed

automatic transmission. It is a conventional

gearbox with a sport setting which activates

steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. It

allows the driver to select manual changes,

and is a useful device when power needs to

tHE NEW

Ford ecosport

Titanium

be extracted, or for slowing momentum when

corners arrive, or for when stops need to be

made.

Interaction between the engine and gearbox

is fluid with a natural progression of power

between the ratios, there is just enough torque

on offer so that the gaps are filled easily.

The EcoSport is reasonably lively, it will cut

out a standstill to 100km/h time of 10.5sec,

thanks a lot to its light weight of just under

1300kg.

That also contributes to lack

of stress on the engine, it is

relaxed and comfortable

in its power supply.

That being the case it,

according to Ford, is

capable of a 6.7-litre

per 100km (42mpg)

combined cycle fuel

usage figure.

That sits well with the

readout during my time with

the test car, it was constantly

listing at 7.5l/100km (38mpg). At

100km/h a 5l/100km (55mpg) figure

is on offer with the engine not very busy at

2100rpm at that speed.

The EcoSport takes on the handling qualities

I’m very familiar with in European Fords. It

feels lithe and nimble with chassis control and

steering feel that promotes confidence.

Even though it sits high on the suspension,

there is little body movement and gravitational

change is unforced, the body is balanced

over the suspension. The spring and damper

rates are compliant so that rut and bump

absorption provides a comfortable ride along

with the firming needed to provide a taut feel.

Incidentally, high quality Bridgestone Ecopia

tyres (205/50 x 17in) have high grip properties.

In terms of cost, the EcoSport Trend sits at

$26,990, while a high grade Titanium variant

is listed at $29,990. The evaluation car was the

latter.

In Titanium form the EcoSport wants for

little. It gets satellite navigation, cruise control

and speed limiter, push-button ignition, leather

accented seats and a large central display which

includes a rear view camera.

For its price the EcoSport is outstanding

buying, it is functional and pleasing to drive,

it is a car for those who need something just a

little different in a small package.

Even though it’s a squeeze for five it is fine

for those who frequently travel with children

and all of their requirements. Boot space is

generous and there is a deep floor thanks to the

spare wheel being located on the rear door.

As I’ve aged to the stage where I’ve earned a

SuperGold card, I’ve found my old joints and

bones aren’t quite as flexible as they once were.

That being the case, it was good to note that

the EcoSport has easy entry and egress, some

of that can be attributed to its high ground

clearance (209mm).

It is certainly a vehicle that will suit many age

groups – young to seniors.

Plant your greens in early spring

• By Rachel Vogan

AS THE days get longer and the

soil slowly begins to warm up

and dry out, the time is right

to set about growing our own

greens to feed the troops.

PEAS

Peas are a super quick and

easy crop to grow, and have the

advantage of being remarkably

hardy to cold temperatures. They

prefer a fertile soil in full sun, and

would benefit from a supporting

frame or series of stakes to keep

the crop off the ground. Sow

seed directly in the garden where

you wish it to grow, allowing

10-15cm between each plant. I

put two seeds in each hole. Cover

the area with mesh or netting, as

birds just love to peck at fresh pea

shoots as they emerge through

the soil. Once the plants reach

15-20cm, the leaves don’t seem to

have as much appeal, so the nets

can be removed. They are a great

crop for tubs and planters, and

dwarf varieties are wonderful in

hanging baskets or window boxes.

CELERY

Just think Bloody Marys,

salads and slaws when it comes

to this hardy vegetable. I suggest

starting with seedlings, as

seed often takes six to eight

weeks to germinate and reach a

transplantable size. Two punnets

will be enough for a family or

large flat. Celery is a long-term

crop, taking between four to six

months to mature. Enrich the

soil with some good manure

or rich compost and space the

plants two hand-widths apart. It’s

a good container crop too, and

two or three plants can easily fit

in a 10-litre bucket. A sneaky

tip is to harvest the outer stalks

individually by carefully cutting

them off at the base, leaving the

rest of the plant to grow happily.

ASPARAGUS

Home-grown is just the bee’s

knees, and you have two options

when it comes to growing;

either planting out dormant

crowns, which are still in the

shops now, or exploring the

option of sowing seed. If you

want to grow your own spears,

you must allocate a permanent

spot in the garden as asparagus

PATIENCE:

Asparagus will

take two to

three years before

harvested. Find

a space in the

garden where

it can grown

permanently.

is a crop that lives in the ground

all year round and, if cared

for well, will crop for decades.

Remember to pack your patience

when establishing a patch, as

it can take two to three years

before you will be harvesting

anything, and it can’t be cropped

when it’s young as the crown

needs to bulk up underground

before picking can begin.

SPRING ONIONS

It’s all in the name with this

crop, but you actually can plant

them all year round. Either sow

from seed now, transplanting

once they are big enough, or

cheat like I do and buy them in

punnets. I don’t bother separating

them out into singles; instead I

just tease each plug in half and

plant that. This means that when

it comes to harvesting, I have

a whole bunch to pick at once,

which suits me as it is how I use

them in the kitchen. Look out for

the red, bunching onions; these

have a bit more zing. Did you

know that the longer you leave

spring onions in the ground, the

stronger the white part tastes?

ROCKET

Rocket, or arugula, is one of

the fastest-growing and tastiest

salad greens around. It is the

epitome of a low-maintenance

crop; you can scatter seed

directly onto the ground and

walk away, and will be greeted

with seedlings within a few weeks,

and harvestable leaves only a

fortnight to a month later. Plants

are widely available all year round.

If the soil dries out in summer,

the plant will bolt and go to seed,

so perk up old, tired soil with

sheep manure or compost before

planting in order to avoid this.

Gardening

Plant greens early spring

•From page 37

FRESH: Parsley comes in two forms – curly leaved or flat

leaved – they can be grown together.

Get herbs in now

ALL THE promise of spring is

out there in the herb garden.

It’s a good idea to plant herbs

close to the kitchen — the further

away they are, the less likely

you are to pick them, especially

in rainy weather.

Most of the cooking herbs like

a place in the sun, though mint

will grow in a damp shady spot.

If you don’t have much space,

stick to those herbs you know

you’ll use in cooking.

Consider growing them in

pots, or plant herbs in the flower

garden — most are quite decorative.

Fresh coriander is an important

ingredient in many Thai

and Indian dishes and now’s

theww time for planting the

seeds of this annual herb.

Coriander plants are taprooted

and don’t transplant well,

so sow seeds where you want

the plants to grow and thin out

when necessary.

The seeds are slow to germinate,

so don’t give up on them

too soon.

Some varieties of chives die

down in the winter, while others

stay green the whole year

through.

If rust is a problem, cut the

clumps back and wait for fresh

rust-free growth. If that doesn’t

work, it may be best to plant some

new bulbs in a different spot.

Clumps need to be divided

and replanted every few

years in any case or the

chives get overcrowded

and loose their vigour.

Garlic chives have a

stronger flavour than

regular chives and the

flowers are white and

starry rather than pompom

shaped.

The plants grow more

slowly and the leaves

stand up to cooking a

bit better.

Parsley comes in two

forms: the curly-leaved

variety and flat or

broad-leaved parsley,

often known as Italian

parsley. The latter is

currently more trendy

but at a pinch you can

usually substitute one

for the other.

RADISH

Crisp and zingy, everyone has

room to grow these nuggets

of goodness. All you need is a

kitchen bucket, some vegetable

mix and seeds, and you’ll be in

business. Why not grow them

at work if you have a sunny

outdoor space? It could make

for a fun inter-office challenge,

with prizes on offer for the

biggest, smallest, ugliest, tastiest

and funniest shaped radish!

Personally, I prefer the round

marble to golf-ball-sized types,

although the cylindrical varieties

do get a lot bigger, and therefore

give you more bang for your

buck. Sow from seed now in

rows, or try sowing them in a

circle or a pattern – kids love

doing this. Note that you won’t

find radishes in punnets, as they

are very difficult to transplant

without damaging the roots,

so planting in a seed line is

definitely the best way forward.

POTATOES

The first sprouted potatoes can go

in the ground now in the warmer

climates. If your soil isn’t ready,

grow an early-crop in large tubs

or potato planters. This option

will yield just as well as growing

in the ground, and enable you

to tuck the pots up against the

house to protect them from cold

snaps. Early-crop varieties to

plant now include ‘Jersey Benne’,

‘Rocket’, Swift’, ‘Cliff Kidney’,

or ‘Liseta’. Remember to enrich

the soil with potato food!

KALE

Move over spinach, kale is

steadily taking over as the most

popular superfood. It’s a tough

campaigner and can be grown

all year round, but if you are just

starting up your vegetable patch

for the season now, it’s a perfect

time to fire a few plants in the

ground. If you’re short on space,

you can also plant these into

tubs or containers. It is literally

a no-fuss crop, it prefers full sun

and a compost-enriched soil, but

will survive if it doesn’t get all its

key ingredients – although, why

bother planting something if you

don’t want the best outcome?

Seedlings are plentiful in shops,

as is seed. It germinates readily,

makes a tasty microgreen, and

due to its ornamental nature,

could easily be planted in

ceramic or colourful pots and

placed on the patio or deck.

CORIANDER

I almost always have this herb in

my garden, except for when all

it wants to do is bolt and go to

seed in summer. It’s a cool-month

crop, so sow or plant out seedlings

in spring, autumn or winter. It

needs moisture-retentive soil

in order to thrive, so if you soil

is poor or loose, mix in some

good compost to help it hold

onto water. Did you know that

you can save your own coriander

seed? Simply let the flowers go to

WHOLESOME: Rhubarb

loves muck, so pile manure

into the soil before planting.

Left – Cylindrical varieties of

radish generally grow bigger

than other varieties.

seed, then, once the heads look

papery brown, hang them upsidedown

inside a paper bag and

over time the seeds will fall out.

Alternatively, you can scrunch

the outside of the bag to speed up

the process. Although coriander

will grow well in a pot, make sure

it’s a big one, as it has a vigorous

root system and needs plenty of

soil in which to anchor itself.

RHUBARB

It may seem odd to kick off

the growing season with what

some call a fruit, but this trusty

old campaigner is technically

classified as a vegetable. Lift and

divide old, woody clumps now,

before any top growth begins

appearing. The crowns (chunks

of roots) are actually extremely

tough and will cope with being

hacked about – even use an axe

if need be. Rhubarb loves muck,

particularly manure, so pile it into

the soil before planting. When

it comes to planting, nestle the

crown just above the soil line, and

avoid burying it fully as it tends to

make the plants rot. Rhubarb is a

crop that is highly ornamental as

well, so blend it into your flower

beds and garden borders, and

know that it will also cope with

an hour or two of shade a day.

QUESTION

GARDENING

ADVICE with

Our plum tree (Elephant Heart) was planted five years ago and has only ever produced

one plum. It’s planted in our front lawn and gets good midday to afternoon sun. It

appears to be in good condition with no obvious disease to the leaves, trunk or branches.

There are often a lot of flowers on it in spring too. Where are we going wrong?

Today’s winning question

came from Rose.

Congratulations!

ANSWER

Your plum tree has only

produced a single plum

because of a lack of

pollination. With one or two exceptions, all

plum trees require pollination from another

specific plum variety. They are all not

self-fertile like some other fruit trees, and

therefore when grown in isolation the chance

of any fruit appearing is quite remote.

For this reason, plum trees should be sold double grafted to ensure cross-pollination, or you should be

advised at the time of purchase that it is necessary to purchase two plum trees at the same time.

The best pollinators for your existing plum tree are Omega, Santa Rosa and Sultan.

If you are keen to perhaps plant self-pollinating varieties in the future, try Wilsons early which crops just

before Christmas. Another favourite is Louisa, a very large plum that looks and almost tastes like a nectarine

and crops late Dec/early Jan.

ADVERTORIAL

The Art of the Arborist

So often we turn up to a property

and the trees have been attacked by

someone, with little to no knowledge

of the needs of the tree. Unfortunately,

this can severely decrease the life

expectancy of the trees.

Tree pruning is both an art and a

science. An arborist’s job is to assess

trees on their individual merit and

determine what approach is needed for

each tree.

The art of pruning means an arborist

can improve a tree’s aesthetics and

structural integrity, whilst making the

tree safe and manageable. When on a

job, there are occasions where we do

advocate that a tree needs removing,

either because it has been pruned

poorly in the past, or the tree would

need severe pruning to reach the

owners desired outcome.

The science behind tree pruning

draws on knowledge, experience and

expertise to ensure that tree health

remains a top priority.

Every tree needs to be pruned

differently, for example, you can’t prune

a Maple the same as you would an Oak.

Sometimes there are options available

rather than simply topping a tree.

An arborist may suggest elevating the

lower canopy to let light in underneath,

removing deadwood and thinning

(increases airflow around tree and

increasing light to still keep shape

and health of tree), or possibly end

weighting (removing weight) from

selected limbs.

Our favourite clients are the ones that ask

us if it were my garden, what would I do

to the trees. This gives us the freedom to

immerse ourselves in the garden and get

the best result for the client.

Often, we like to do the primary

work (obvious work) first, and then

the secondary work becomes more

apparent.

Consulting an arborist or tree surgeon

and investing in your trees can add

value to a property, not to mention

enjoyment to the owner. Alternatively,

trees that are poorly looked after could

have the potential to become a liability

for the owner.

Tackle off-road

tracks in Kia Sorento

I OFFERED to take some

photos in the Selwyn

district for one of Star

Media’s publications.

One of them was of the

Rakaia Gorge jet boating

experience and I knew if

I had a four-wheel-drive

vehicle I could get down

onto the riverbed stones to

grab the shots I needed.

Fortuitously, the evaluation

car I was driving

that weekend was fourwheel-drive

capable – Kia’s

upgraded Sorento sport

utility vehicle – and it easily

manoeuvered the slippery

access slope and provided a

comfortable ride over

the uneven surface of the

riverbank.

That is one of the reasons

today’s sport utility vehicles

are so popular, they are

adaptable, and while they

may not be a total crosscountry

charger they do

provide practicality when

sealed roads run out. Add

to that its seven-seat capability

and it’s easy to see

why the Sorento is one of

the front-runners in the

large SUV market.

As mentioned, it has

just undergone a bit of

a facelift. Major changes

include new frontal

treatment – bumpers,

lights, grille and wheels.

On-board, there’s a bit

more kit including new display

graphics.

Most importantly, the

new Sorento gets an engineering

upgrade in the

form of an eight-speed

automatic transmission.

It is a beauty which offers

the benefits of improving

fuel economy and lowering

emission discharge. The

driveline is also smoother,

and with the short gaps

between ratios the whole

drive transition process is

more fluid.

In design terms, the

Sorento is the SUV we have

come to know and support.

It is a true seven-seater

and if you don’t need the

rear row of seats upright,

the rear wagon section is

cavernous, Kia claiming a

1662-litre load space.

The Sorento is also

affordable. At the time of

evaluation, a Fieldays’ special

had the EX model, as

tested, sitting at $48,990. It

normally lists at $59,990.

There are also Premium

and Limited models which

will stretch to $73,990,

bearing in mind that if you

are only interested in petrol

power you’ll have to indent

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

KIA SORENTO: Family-friendly sport utility vehicle.

order the 3.3-litre V6.

However, the EX model

comes with a 2.2-litre turbocharged

diesel engine,

and that would most

certainly be my pick. The

engine is the R-series

unit which is shared with

Hyundai. Even though it

isn’t new, it has been constantly

been refined to the

point where it can well be

regarded as one of the automotive

world’s great power

plants. It is strong, smooth

and delivers with remarkable

fuel usage figures.

• Price – Kia Sorento

EX, $59,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4800mm;

width, 1890mm;

height, 1690mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2199cc, 147kW,

441Nm, eight-speed

manual.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.6sec

• Fuel usage –

6.5l/100km

Kia rates the 2199cc unit

with a 6.5-litre per 100km

(44mpg) combined cycle

rating, which fits well with

the trip computer’s readout.

It was constantly sitting at

8l/100km (35mpg) along

with a 5l/100km (56mpg)

instantaneous figure at

100km/h, the rev counter

pointing to a lazy 1500rpm

at that speed.

The engine is also listed

with power and torque figures

of 147kW and 441Nm

respectively. Both are realised

low in the rev band at

3800rpm and 1750rpm-

2750rpm respectively, and

with its delivery through the

new eight-speeder there is a

solid flow of energy, all done

in a whisper quiet manner.

If you also take into

account the areas where

maximum torque is produced,

the Sorento in this

The Star

form is quite swift, it will

lunge to 100km/h from a

standstill in 8.6sec.

Acceleration aside, the

engine will also work away

tirelessly at city or urban

speeds, hauling through

the transmission with economical

shift patterns and

positive response to throttle

request.

On those great cruising

roads of the Canterbury

high country, the Sorento

moves with quiet motion

and handles well.

With the option of four

drive modes – comfort,

eco, sport and individual –

the driver can use the best

setting for each driving

experience. On the twists

and turns leading in and

out of the Rakaia Gorge I

used the sport mode, and it

deliberately firms the steering

and provides a more

involving feel along with

greater engine urgency.

For a vehicle that weighs

in quite tubby at around

1900kg, the big Sorento

steers beautifully and stays

well balanced, there is a

positive firming within

the suspension, but it rides

without harshness. Grit

had been spread on part of

the road as a way of keeping

ice at bay mid-winter,

where grip was low, drive

being distributed to the

rear could be noticed, and

that adds a secure feel.

One of my work colleagues

has just bought

a new Kia, and while it

wasn’t an SUV, it is a car

which stands out with its

quality of build and modern

engineering practices.

That could be said of

Kia’s entire range, the big

Korean-conglomerate

is producing some fine

vehicles and, as in the

Sorento’s case, the company

has adopted an extensive

development process, each

model is constantly being

refined and those benefits

are being passed down to

consumers.

CAN RICCARTON glamour

mare Savvy Coup beat

Australian record-breaker Winx?

THe answer from trainer

Michael Pitman is a resounding

no. However, he says even

running second to Winx would

be a dream.

At the weekend Savvy Coup

closed late to finish runner-up

to Melody Belle in the 1600m

Group One Windsor Park Plate

at Hastings. The run has left the

mare looking in prime shape

ahead of the 2040m Livamol

Classic on October 6.

“She went as good as she

possibly could have gone really

– there’s no disgrace running

second to probably the best

sprinting miler in the country,”

said Pitman.

MATCH UP: Australian wonder horse Winx (left) could face Savvy Coup, pictured with trainer

Michael Pitman, in one of Australasia’s richest races.

If Savvy Coup can win the

Livamol then Pitman plans to

send her to Melbourne to run

in the Cox Plate on October 27.

She is currently at long odds

($101), in Australia compared to

favourite Winx at $1.30.

However, any kind of strong

result would be worth the trip.

Under a new prize money

structure totalling AUS$5

million, the winner of the Cox

Plate will receive $3 million.

Prize money will now extend

down to 10th place.

The Cox Plate could also

Local

News

Now

Aussie champ in Savvy Coup’s sights

Cox Plate

looms if

good form

continues

• By Gordon Findlater

THE AFL is a prime example of

why New Zealand rugby should

do their own thing.

I was lucky enough to be in

Melbourne at the weekend.

Before heading over, I was well

aware of the Melbourne Storm

v Cronulla Sharks preliminary

final, and was licking my lips

over the prospect of finding a

local watering hole to watch

the match. However, it quickly

became evident the AFL ruled

the roost.

There were 95,000 people

jammed packed into MCG for

Friday night’s preliminary final

between Richmond and Collingwood

that was being played

at the same time as the Storm

match which attracted 27,000 to

AAMI Stadium.

It’s worth noting these numbers

aren’t one-offs due to it being

finals time. Richmond’s average

home attendance through

the 18 team, 23 round competition

was more than 61,000. In

fact only three teams (Brisbane,

Gold Coast and Greater Western

Sydney) had average home

crowds of under 20,000.

We are home to undoubtedly

the most successful franchise in

Super Rugby history, so why are

we struggling to get much more

than 10,000 people along to

some matches?

It’s because we’ve lost the

family feel and openness as fans

with our team. The thing that

stood out the most watching

Friday night’s AFL match was

what happened after the match.

Rather than just a couple of

words from the winning captain

and coach, the broadcast stayed

with the players well after the

final whistle. The scenes were

like that of a club rugby game

– it was about the people. The

broadcasters roaming reporter

#RoamingBrian (yes, he has

a hashtag) spent 15min in the

team’s post-match area where

they were joined by loyal supporters

and their families to help

celebrate the victory in a relaxed

environment.

The other thing that struck me

and once again confirmed the

true club level feel to the sport

FAST FACTS:

Fire rages, homes at risk

mare)

Matthew Pitman

Record: 15 starts, five

three weeks after Hastings,” said

Pitman.

He sees Savvy Coup as being

a realistic chance on November

10 at Flemington in either the

AUS$2 million Emirates Stakes

or the AUS$300,000 group two

Matriarch Stakes – both run over

2000m. “I’m not thinking for one

minute we can beat Winx but if

we go for the Matriarch it’s the

perfect lead-in race or we can up

the ante and go for the Emirates.

There’s a massive difference, but

it all depends on how she goes,”

said Pitman.

Rugby has lessons to learn from AFL’s club feel

was driving past Richmond’s

training ground. Any Joe Blogs

walking by could stop and watch

the team train in the open field

next to a main road.

Have you ever gazed in as the

Crusaders train at Rugby Park?

No, because the place is surrounded

in 2m fencing like some

kind of attempt to hide a prison

yard.

Let’s make rugby about our

people again.

Stuff the rule we need to play

matches at 7.35pm so it’s friendly

for international viewership,

bring the game to the people

and the people will come to the

game.

All Black dreams for young

German loose forward

• By Gordon Findlater

WHAT ARE the chances of ever

seeing a German play for the

Crusaders?

THey might not be as low

as you’d think, especially if

you’ve had the chance to see

17-year-old Nelson College loose

forward Anton Segner in action.

This year’s UC Championship

most valuable player award

winner only arrived in New

Zealand last year as an exchange

student from Germany.

However, the planned sixmonth

stay was prolonged after

he cracked the school’s first

XV as a year 11. Now Segner is

looking destined for big things

after being named to start at

flanker today for New Zealand

Schools’ match against Tonga

Schools in Brisbane.

When Segner was nine-yearsold

growing up in his home

town of Frankfurt, his idol was

Cristiano Ronaldo. He had never

even heard of rugby or his soonto-be

new idol Richie McCaw,

but that all changed very quickly

due to a friend from his Englishspeaking

school.

“I had quite a lot of English

friends. One day I went to their

house and they said shall we

have a game of rugby in the

backyard. I said: ‘Rugby?’ and

then they told me I wouldn’t be

too bad at it,” said Segner.

“We played and I found it

quite fun. A friend of mine took

me to the local rugby club and

I’ve loved the sport ever since.”

Segner made an immediate

impact with the SC 1880

Frankfurt rugby club under-12

team and played for the German

under-16 national team. Now

he’s about to pull on a black

jersey.

At the weekend Segner

attended the New Zealand

Schools’ development camp

where he did enough to catch

the eye of the coach Brad Mooar

and earned a spot in the 26-

man squad selected to travel to

Brisbane for three matches.

“Looking at him you just

think that he’s another Kiwi kid

who’s been given a rugby ball

when he was born,” said Mooar.

“You can often tell with

people from another country

who haven’t thrown a rugby

ball around as a five-year-old

with a sibling or cousins – it

Zealand Schools’ team. ​

doesn’t look as natural. For him

everything flows. He can offload

as well as anybody, he’s a

big physical specimen and runs

great lines.”

It may not be long before

Segner and Mooar – who is also

the Crusader’s assistant coach –

develop a stronger relationship.

Segner, who will return to

Nelson College next year for his

final year of secondary school,

will be part of the Crusaders’

academy in Nelson where he

will train four times a week.

He has developed the build of

a loose forward, standing at

192cm and 104kg.

If his progression in rugby

continues at the rate it currently

is, the move to New Zealand

could become a permanent one.

Segner, who admits he misses

mum and dad in Germany, says

ROOSTERS FORWARD Ryan

Matterson is hopeful halfback

Cooper Cronk will be fit to

take his place in the Telstra

Premiership grand-final on

Sunday against Melbourne.

But if not, he expects young

playmaker Sean O’Sullivan to get

the nod as a replacement.

Matterson played three games

this season in the No 6 jersey

when Luke Keary was out but

reckons it would be a different

scenario if the club’s main playmaker

in Cronk was scratched

and the five-eighth was asked to

move to the halfback role.

“Fingers crossed Coops can

play, he’s a big part of the team,”

Matterson told NRL.com.

“Whoever Robbo names, we

have 100 per cent faith in them.

The boys have been training

all season for this. We’ve got a

36-man squad so I’m pretty sure

whoever Robbo chooses is going

to be the best candidate for the

job.”

O’Sullivan has had a strong

season for feeder club Wyong in

the Intrust Super Premiership,

Matterson points out. He scored

a try on NRL debut in round 18

in the only game this year Cronk

missed, and has since made the

17 on the bench three more times

without getting on the field.

Since Matterson’s three games

in the No 6 from rounds 21-23, he

has mostly played in the middle

in a sort of roving lock-type role

in four consecutive games off the

bench. “I haven’t been prepping

for the halves but football is

football, you run hard and tackle

hard and create opportunities,”

Matterson said. “I don’t prepare

myself for the halves but if that

opportunity comes then I’ll take

it.”

Instead, Matterson said he had

relished the chance to get his

work rate up in a middle forward

role. “Since my head knock, I’ve

found myself playing in the middle

now and I’m really enjoying

Cantabrian

pitches in at

new baseball

franchise

• By Jacob Page

MATTHEW BOYCE is keen

to prove he could be a diamond

on the mound for the Auckland

Tuatara.

The 21-year-old pitcher is the

lone Cantabrian to make the

Auckland Tuatara taxi squad for

the franchise’s debut Australian

Baseball League season starting in

November.

The ‘taxi’ squad is a group of

players who will train with the

team in a development capacity

and the 21-year-old right-handed

pitcher impressed enough during

open trials at Avonhead Park a

fortnight ago to earn a place.

The former Christ’s College

student returned home in June

after three years playing baseball

for College of the Canyons in

California. “It was the greatest

experience of my life. To go from

New Zealand, where you play and

train once a week, to playing baseball

six days a week with guys who

grew up playing it was amazing.”

Boyce played cricket and softball

but found baseball was his preferred

sport as a nine-year-old.

Basketball loses stalwart

Bruce Martin passes away at 72

• By Gordon Findlater

BASKETBALL IN Canterbury

will never be the same after the

passing of Bruce Martin following

a battle with cancer.

Martin passed away peacefully

at home last Friday evening aged

72. He was actively involved in

basketball for the past 56 years.

After first playing for the

Burnsco Club at Cowles Stadium

in 1962, Martin went on to hold

a number of different roles and

helped elevate the sport in Canterbury.

He worked as a referee

between 1967 and last year.

He was made a life member

of the Canterbury Basketball

Association in 1980 and recently

received a 50-year service award

from Basketball New Zealand.

“If you wanted something done

you just asked Bruce and it was

done,” said former NBL referee

Raewyn Willocks. “He’s the kind

of referee that would shout out ‘air

ball’ if you had a bad shot, but he

got away with doing that because

he was Bruce.”

Martin refused to be slowed

down by age. He completed 38

City2Surf events, running his

last in 2016. He also made an

appearance on the basketball

court as recently as June.

He received word that his

illness was terminal earlier

this year, which led to the CBA

holding an appreciation evening

for him.

“He’s been in charge of the

midweek competition for many

years now,” said CBA chief

executive Paul Duggan.

“We got him along one evening

in June and people spoke about

what he meant to them and then

he suited up for two different

teams and played a minute for

each team.”

He was also a volunteer

basketball reporter for local

media for more than 40 years and

wrote his last match report during

the CBA finals’ week this month.

Martin’s life be held at

Bulls on cusp of final

• By Jacob Page

THE CANTERBURY Bulls are

in the box seat to make their

first national final since 2015

after thumping Waikato 52-6

at Christchurch Stadium on

Saturday.

The Bulls are now two from

two and the only undefeated

team in the National Premiership

with one round to play.

Only a heavy loss to Akarana

at Christchurch Stadium on

Saturday (2pm), and Counties

Manukau blitzing Waikato in

similar a fashion, would see the

Bulls miss out on the October 6

final.

The Bulls last won the title in

2014 by beating the Wai-Coa Bay

Stallions 40-8.

For the second week in a row,

the Bulls had a flat patch in the

middle of the game.

After racing out to a 22-6

advantage by half-time, they had

to wait until the last 20min of the

game to pile on six tries against a

tiring Waikato defence.

Bulls coach Andrew Auimatagi

said he backed his players to read

the game, but admitted some

of the errors if repeated against

Akarana would cost them points.

“We just made a few sloppy errors

in the ruck and tried to push

things a little bit,” he said.

“However, I’ll always back the

boys to go for it if they see an opportunity.”

Fullback Tauvale Tauvale

and winger Ben Ilalio each

scored twice against Waikato.

Auimatagi also praised his

forward pack for a second

consecutive stellar shift. Reuben

Te Amo had a big impact off

the bench, breaking tackles

and making extra metres after

contact. “The forwards are on a

good roll at the moment and each

of them offer something different

with a good mix of youth and

experience,” Auimatagi said.

“We’ll have to maintain that

this week because Akarana have

some big forwards that are capable

of dominating a game.”

The Best Kept Secrets

to Selling Your Home

Selling Secret #1: The first impression is the

only impression. No matter how good the interior of your

home looks, buyers have already judged your home before

they walk through the door. You never have a second

chance to make a first impression. It’s important to make

people feel warm, welcome and safe as they approach the

house. Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive

shrubs and brightly coloured flowers. Entry ways are

also important. You use it as a utility space for your coat

and keys. But, when you’re selling, make it welcoming by

putting in a small bench or a vase of fresh-cut flowers.

Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to show. Your house

needs to be “show-ready” at all times – you never know

when your buyer is going to walk through the door. You

have to be available whenever they want to come see

the place and it has to be in tip-top shape. Don’t leave

dishes in the sink, keep the dishwasher cleaned out, the

bathrooms sparkling and make sure there are no dust

bunnies in the corners. It’s a little inconvenient, but it will

get your house sold.

Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes first. You’re not

actually selling your house, you’re selling your kitchen

– that’s how important it is. The benefits of remodelling

your kitchen are endless, and the best part of it is that

you’ll probably get 85% of your money back. It may be

a few thousand dollars to replace countertops where a

buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking price if your

kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most inexpensive kitchen

updates include painting and new cabinet hardware. Use

a neutral-colour paint so you can present buyers with a

blank canvas where they can start envisioning their own

style. If you have a little money to spend, buy one fancy

stainless steel appliance. Why one? Because when people

see one high-end appliance they think all the rest are

expensive too and it updates the kitchen.

Selling Secret #4: Take the home out of your house.

One of the most important things to do when selling

your house is to de-personalize it. The more personal

stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine

themselves living there. Get rid of a third of your stuff –

put it in storage. This includes family photos, memorabilia

collections and personal keepsakes. Staging simply

means arranging your furniture to best showcase the floor

plan and maximize the use of space.

Selling Secret #5: Don’t over-upgrade. Quick fixes

before selling always pay off. Mammoth makeovers, not so

completed and development set to begin on new

hot water pools soon, the area is undergoing some

exciting changes for the better’.

Properties on The Marine Parade enjoy spectacular

views of the beach and nearby pier. Forming a

t-shape with the Marine Parade properties, the

Oram Avenue real estate was purchased originally

with the intention of forming a wide-access to the

beachfront development.

Allen said, ‘summers are set to get longer and

hotter so take advantage of this excellent

opportunity to invest in the gorgeous beachside

suburb of New Brighton’.

much. You probably won’t get your money back if you do a

huge improvement project before you put your house on

the market. Instead, do updates that will pay off and get

you top dollar. Get a new fresh coat of paint on the walls.

Clean the curtains or go buy some inexpensive new ones.

Replace door handles, cabinet hardware, make sure closet

doors are on track, fix leaky facets and clean the grout.

Selling Secret #6: Conceal the critters. You might think

a cuddly dog would warm the hearts of potential buyers,

but you’d be wrong. Not everybody is a dog- or cat-lover.

Buyers don’t want to walk in your home and see a bowl

full of dog food, smell the kitty litter box or have tufts

of pet hair stuck to their clothes. It will give buyers the

impression that your house is not clean. If you’re planning

an open home don’t leave your pets around.

Selling Secret #7: Play the agent field. A secret sale killer

is hiring the wrong real estate agent. Make sure you have

an agent who is totally informed. They must constantly

monitor the multiple listing service (MLS), know what

properties are going on the market and know the comps

in your neighbourhood. Find an agent who embraces

technology – a tech-savvy one has many tools to get your

house sold.

Selling Secret #8: Light it up. Maximize the light in

your home. After location, good light is the one thing that

every buyer cites that they want in a home. Take down

the drapes, clean the windows, change the lampshades,

increase the wattage of your light bulbs and cut the

bushes outside to let in sunshine. Do what you have to do

make your house bright and cheery – it will make it more

sellable.

Selling Secret #9: Half-empty closets. Storage is

something every buyer is looking for and can never have

enough of. Take half the stuff out of your closets then

neatly organize what’s left in there. Buyers will snoop, so

be sure to keep all your closets and cabinets clean and

tidy.
