A CANTERBURY University law

student being investigated for a

sexual assault has been allowed to

go overseas on a study-related trip.

Bu the university’s dean of

law Ursula Cheer is refusing to

discuss the matter.

“I can’t comment

about any

of this because

of confidentiality

and privacy,” she

told The Star

yesterday.

The Star has

learned a female

student has laid

being allowed to go on the trip.

It is understood it is no the

The Star has been told it is a

rape investigation.

The Star sent a number of questions

to Canterbury University

yesterday but none would be answered.

Said Canterbury University

spokeswoman Margaret Agnew:

“UC cannot respond to allegations

that are before the police.”

She referred the questions

back to Dr Cheer. Her phone was

turned off.

Police would also not comment

on the matter.

Student’s big Bake Off chance

• By Julia Evans

MECHANICAL engineering

student Larissa Wilson says there

is a science to baking.

But that went out the window

when the cameras turned on and

the stress of being a contestant in

the new season of the Great Kiwi

Bake Off set in.

Ms Wilson said at home her

scientific background from

Canterbury University does play

a big role in her baking.

“At home, in my general life

when I’m baking I think I am

quite scientific, paying attention

to the measurements. But with

the stress of being on the show,

in the very first episode I have

more than one disaster,” she said.

But while Ms Wilson said

people should expect to see her

under pressure, the show was a

once in a lifetime opportunity

for the 22-year-old.

“It’s the best thing I’ve ever

done.”

The first episode premieres on

TVNZ 2 at 7.30pm on Tuesday

– and Ms Wilson will be surrounded

by a big group of her

friends.

“I’ve invited some friends over

because I would rather everyone

laugh at me when I’m there,

rather than behind my back.”

Plus, Ms Wilson plans on

redeeming herself from some of

the disaster moments from the

first episode by making some of

the baking.

Ms Wilson said the show was

filmed in two weeks and it was

a bit like having an out-of-body

experience.

“It 100 per cent feels like a dream

now. You do your shows and a

couple of months later everyone

finds out you were on it,” she said.

Now she’s ready for everyone

to see the show and excited to see

the reaction.

The thing that surprised me

the most was how real it was.

Everything felt real, though I

haven’t seen the final edit yet.”

Her friends only recently

City council steps away from Water NZ

• By Julia Evans

THE CITY council has quit

Water New Zealand over

“misaligned” views on the

control of water.

Chief executive Karleen

Edwards has drawn a line in the

sand over Water

NZ’s stance on

chlorination and

water control

by quitting the

organisation.

“As I advised

[chief executive

Karleen

Edwards

John

Pfahlert

John] Pfahlert,

I made the decision

because I

do not feel that

Water NZ’s recent

advocacy is

aligned with the

council’s strategic

direction on

water and our

desire to develop

our own strategies

and policies

to address local

water issues,” Dr Edwards told

The Star.

She said Water NZ’s agenda

does not fit with the city council’s

agenda. So membership had

ended.

The advocacy of Water NZ for

a one-size-fits-all proposal for delivering

and managing water services

is clearly seen as misaligned

with Christchurch City Council’s

direction and aspirations of our

communities.”

Water NZ, the country’s

principal advocate for water, supports

findings from the Havelock

North Water Inquiry, following

the 2016 gastro crisis, which left

four people dead and 5500 ill.

City councillors have been

battling to keep the water free

from chlorine since the Government

began cracking down on

unsecure water sources following

the incident.

But Mr Pfahlert said leaving

Water NZ would not have any

impact on the city council’s bid

to keep control of water.

“It is the Government that will

decide what approach to take in

any reform of the drinking water

sector.”

The decision has the backing

of Mayor Lianne Dalziel, who is

“pleased.”

Former Mayor Garry Moore

said the move sends a clear directive

to the Government on plans

to take control of water away

from councils.

The message that this sends

to the Government is that the

second largest city does not think

this is acceptable,” he said.

“I think it’s probably a rediscovery

of the people’s republic

of Christchurch. We don’t want

Water NZ’s way of thinking.”

Dr Edwards said the decision

does not affect city council head

of three waters and waste John

Mackie’s position on the board

of Water NZ. Last month it was

revealed Mr Mackie had filed

a defamation claim against Mr

Moore, seeking $500,000 in damages.

Mr Mackie claims Mr Moore

defamed him by suggesting he

was pushing the interests of Water

NZ’s pro-chlorination stance.

The city council’s membership

of Water NZ will end on October

30.

National MP Gerry Brownlee

said the move is “totally cosmetic”

considering individual

city council staff membership

will continue.

However, he did not want to

see chlorination in the city.

City councillor Vicki Buck said

the city council was opposed to

“practically all” of Water NZ’s

agenda.

“Water NZ now has a clear

agenda of mandatory chlorination,

which we totally reject . . .

that removes local control of our

water and I think people need

that.”

City councillor Deon Swiggs

said the move “put a stake in the

ground” to mark the city council’s

stance on water control.

Christchurch’s water has been

temporarily chlorinated as the

city council moves to improve

infrastructure. Ms Dalziel has

vowed to fight to get an exemption

from blanket chlorination.

Noodle market hurts restaurants

• By Julia Evans

Peter

Morrison

THE NIGHT Noodle Market

is hitting the city’s turbulent

hospitality industry where it

hurts – the back pocket.

Canterbury Hospitality

New Zealand president Peter

Morrison said the event

organised by media company

Stuff was on for far too long

during the industry’s busiest

season and it was taking away

money from

businesses.

The market

is set to be held

in Hagley Park

for 12 nights

from February

6 to 17.

But Mr Morrison

said a lot

of businesses

in the city had

BUSINESS: The Night Noodle Markets are taking away customers from central city

restaurants and bars.

“struggled” with the market

drawing customers away from

restaurants and bars since it

began four years ago.

This year’s event saw 160,000

people attend over the 10 days of

the market.

“It’s on for a very long time,”

he said.

Mr Morrison said it would

only take away more customers

than this year as the event is running

for two additional nights.

“It’s almost two weeks over our

busiest period. These people just

come in from overseas and do it,

taking away business from those

of us who have to pay rates, rent

and staff wages 365 days a year,”

he said.

Though Mr Morrison said

businesses did support the concept

of the markets, boosting the

city’s profile.

“We’re not against it in its

entirety, but it just runs for too

long over the summer season . .

. it could be over a long weekend

or on at a far better time of the

year to bring people in when its

not busy.”

It comes at a time where Mr

Morrison said Christchurch’s

hospitality industry is particularly

“turbulent” and still recovering

from the earthquakes.

Several restaurants and bars

have been forced to close their

doors.

Six of restaurateur Tony

Astle’s businesses were put into

voluntary liquidation last month.

Though many have found new

owners since, including the Art

Gallery’s Universo.

Restaurants The Villas,

Harlequin House, Tequila

Mockingbird, Rockstar Pizza

and Drink Parlour, Chopped,

Canterbury Cheesemongers,

Chinwag, The Good Goat, and

Iconic Club and Bar have also

been closed in the central city.

But Mr Morrison said the

industry was optimistic the

warmer weather would bring

people in.

“We are all looking forward to

a good summer, but these events

don’t help,” he said.

in brief

Call for freedom

camping bylaw change

A hearings panel will

recommend the city council

make a bylaw change to ban

freedom camping in all but

one area of Akaroa. Under the

existing Freedom Camping

Bylaw, freedom camping is

banned in Akaroa’s commercial

area and main waterfront areas,

but is allowed in other areas

for up to two nights in selfcontained

THE CENTRAL city will

once again have a library when

Turanga opens tomorrow.

The mammoth $92 million

building on the corner of

Colombo and Gloucester Sts

will be the largest library in the

South Island – a third larger

than the former central city

library, which was closed following

the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

The city council has a long

weekend of celebrations

planned including special

walk-throughs of the building,

food trucks and live music.

It will be live-streamed on

YouTube from noon.

Head of libraries and

information Carolyn

Robertson said people can

expect to be blown away by

what they find.

“We deliberately haven’t

given too much away in the

lead-up because we want people

to walk through the doors

and experience that wow-factor

for the first time.”

The technology is amazing,

the interior of the building

itself is stunning, and the cultural

art on display throughout

is wonderful. It’s all in all an

incredible experience, and we

can’t wait to see the look on

people’s faces as they discover

it for themselves.”

Visitors will be able to

choose from either a full 45min

tour through all five floors of

Tūranga, or a shorter 15min

tour covering just the ground

and first floors.

The Star recently revealed

the project is at least $500,000

under budget.

A GROUP of young skateboarders

are terrorising central city

businesses and randomly beating

people up on the streets.

Hereford St businesses, Robert

Harris, Hachi Hachi,

Ibis Hotel, Pita Pit and

Burgerfuel say they

have on-going issues

with youths displaying

anti-social behaviour

outside their premises.

A 21-year-old man

told The Star he was

assaulted by the group

earlier this month,

when he was sitting in Cathedral

Square. He received a black eye,

split lip and broken glasses.

The victim was also told during

the assault, “you don’t know who

we are.”

Hachi Hachi employee Patina

Hu said the issue with the youths

has been on-going for three

months.

Ms Hu and other employees

have received verbal abuse from

the skateboarders both while they

are working and walking to and

from work. They have also tipped

“We don’t feel safe, it’s horrible,”

she said.

Robert Harris employee Jamie

Lancaster-Pringle said the cafe

has verbally trespassed

several people in the

group.

They yell at each

other and are loud and

disruptive. They take

up the whole footpath

and sit on our outdoor

furniture smoking,

without purchasing

anything,” she said.

Ibis Hotel general

manager Bradley Condor

said the problem is

“significant.”

Burgerfuel employee Britt

Bowden said the youths loiter

on the street and “terrorise and

intimidate people.”

He said CCTV camera footage

of the Cathedral Square assault

was not able to identify the offenders.

Central City Business Association

chairman Brendan Chase said

he is aware of the issue and that

police response is required.

Police were unable to respond to

questions from The Star yesterday.

Number of dogs on dangerous

• By Julia Evans

FIFTEEN DOGS have been

classified as dangerous in the last

year, bringing the total register

to 55.

The offending list of dogs

includes 11 german shepherds,

10 american pit bulls, nine

staffordshire bull terriers, seven

bull mastiffs, three rottweilers,

which are all cross-breeds,

and two purebred huskies,

city council head of regulatory

compliance Tracey Weston

said.

There is also a jack russell,

retriever cross, collie cross,

alaskan malamute, dogo

argentino cross, labrador

cross, shapei cross, american

staffordshire terrier and

american bull dog on the

dangerous register.

It follows the trend of the

number of dogs around the city

continuing to increase, with

nearly one dog per 10 people.

The total number of dogs

recorded on the council’s dog

registration database for the

period was 38,500 compared to

37,816 last year,” a city council

report said.

Dogs are classified as dangerous

if owners are convicted of

evidence is given on more than

one occasion that the dog was

aggressive, the owner admits that

the dog is a threat to people or

other animals.

All 15 in the last year had evidence

given against them.

Once dangerous, owners must

then ensure that the dog is kept

within a fence that is not the only

way to get into a property.

City council rules also say the

dog must not be allowed to be

“at large” meaning unrestrained

and running freely in public or

on private property without the

property owner’s permission.

The dog must have a muzzle

that allows it to breathe and

drink without obstruction, be

controlled on a leash, within one

month of the classification, the

owner has to provide a vet’s certificate

to say the dog has been

desexed and pay a dog registration

fee 50 per cent higher than

the standard fee.

It comes as last week a maltese

cross, Buttons, was attacked and

mauled to death by a labrador on

New Brighton Beach.

However, the labrador was

a dog from Rolleston in the

Selwyn district.

list rises by 15

The city council recorded five

owners as probationary, meaning

they cannot become the owner

of any new dogs but may keep

any registered dogs they have and

may be required to do dog education

or obedience courses.

The status lasts about two

years.

There was one dog owner disqualified

from owning dogs for

four years, meaning they cannot

own a dog at all.

The council took three

prosecutions, one prosecution

resulted in a conviction where the

dog owner was disqualified from

owning dogs for four years,” a

city council report said.

The breeds were one labrador

cross, two american pit bull

terriers cross type dogs,” Ms

Weston said.

Fifty two dogs were classified

as menacing based on acts of aggression,

taking the total number

to 241.

There were also 20 new dogs

added to the menacing register

based on their breed, which increased

the number to 156.

Breeds which are immediately

classified as menacing are

brazilian fila, dogo argentino,

japanese tosa, american pit bull

types and perro de presa canario.

Meanwhile, the city council

received 9633 complaints relating

to dogs barking, wandering, fouling,

rushing, attacks on domestic

animals and unregistered dogs.

Two hundred and forty complaints

were attacks on people.

It investigated 726 priority one

complaints for dogs attacking

people, stock, poultry, domestic

animals and protected wildlife or

traffic hazards relating to wandering

on roads.

Also in the last year, the city

council issued 1411 infringement

notices for breaches against the

Dog Control Act.

Earthquake strengthening

for Kmart in The Palms

• By Julia Evans

KMART’S SITE in The Palms

Shopping Centre has a rating of

less than 34 per cent of the new

building standard.

It comes following the store’s

sudden closure for repairs a

week ago.

The building was added to the

Ministry of Business, Innovation

and Employment’s register

of earthquake-prone buildings

on October 4.

A spokesperson for The Palms

said the current rating of the

store does not meet the 34 per

cent threshold, making the

works a necessity to ensure it

meets all standards for compliance.

The necessary consents and

approvals have been obtained,

and the seismic strengthening

upgrades are under way. The

Palms is working hard to confirm

a reopening date, and we

aim to have an update as soon as

possible.”

The new building standard

said earthquake-prone buildings

are those “likely to collapse

causing injury or death, or

damage to any other property,

during or following a moderate

earthquake.”

A spokesperson for Kmart

told The Star the shop temporarily

closed in order to undergo

some seismic strengthening upgrades,

following feedback from

a recent routine assessment.

“Although the store passed all

safety assessments, additional

recommendations were made

given that Christchurch is an

area with high levels of seismic

activity. We decided to implement

improvements immediately,

as the safety of our team

members and customers is our

number one priority.”

A block of eight flats on the

central city’s Dorset St were also

added to the register last month.

It is a category one heritage

building.

There are currently 588

buildings in Christchurch on the

Government’s earthquake-prone

building register.

‘Deaf’ salesman persistent

• By Sophie Cornish

RESTAURANTS ARE stopping

a ‘deaf’ salesman from going

into their premises because he

continues to harass patrons.

The man approaches customers

sitting at tables in cafes, bars

and restaurants and leaves a red

key chain with a note saying he

is deaf and looking for

$10 donations.

But people are sceptical

as to whether the

man, who never speaks

or signs, is really deaf.

OGB bar manager

Simon Kerr said he has

asked the man to leave

the premises four times

last week, twice on the one day.

“I find he is a problem to our

guests . . . each time I have approached

him people have felt

more comfortable giving the

key ring back and not ‘donating’

anything to him.”

Camille

Le Lievre

Mr Kerr said he believes the

man isn’t homeless.

“He dresses in new-looking

labelled clothing, rides a nice

bike and seem well kept, hair

combed, no facial hair etc.”

Café manager at Rollickin

Gelato Grace Irving said she has

seen the man both at her work

and other bars around the city.

“I have asked him to

leave before. From my

experiences with him I

do not think he is deaf.

He appears at times to

understand what I am

saying.”

“He will go around and

put them (the notes) on

people’s tables and make

them feel bad because he is deaf

. . . he comes away from places

sometimes with $40, $50, $60,”

she said.

Diner 66 general manager

Camille Le Lievre said she asked

the man to leave the restaurant

three times in one week.

“It’s not an okay thing to do,

to solicit in a business . . . I don’t

believe he is deaf. I have friends

who have tried to sign to him but

he doesn’t respond. When I talk

to him he doesn’t sign to me.”

•Currently the city council has no by-laws around begging

in public places.

•In 2015, city councillor Paul Lonsdale proposed the idea of

a begging by-law, however, it was shelved after realising

it would be costly, hard to enforce and wasn’t effective

when put in place in Auckland.

•Acting head of strategic policy Claire Bryant said a

hearing panel recently heard submissions on the review of

the Public Places Bylaw and their final report will go to the

city council for approval within the next five weeks.

The report recommends ‘investigating a regulatory

mechanism in regards to anti-social nuisance behaviour

and report back to the Regulatory Performance

Committee.’

•Currently city council with working with agencies such

as the police, Central City Business Association and social

agencies on a non-regulatory response.

•This response include a $70,000 city council grant

towards two new Christchurch City Mission outreach

social workers, who will be helping people who are

sleeping rough and begging on Christchurch streets.

Development

for Lyttelton

on cards

• By Matt Salmons

LYTTELTON MAY be

next to receive attention

from Christchurch’s urban

development agency.

In a report given to the

city council last week,

Development Christchurch

Ltd said it was providing

investors and developers with

“case-management support for

development in Lyttelton.”

DCL chief executive Rob Hall

said the agency had considered

the city’s suburban Master Plans

in the past.

“Lyttelton was included in this

work, and various possibilities

were raised at the time. The potential

for development at certain

locations remains, however, no

detailed options have been progressed.”

Mr Hall said work on what

those developments could be

had not “continued past the

opportunity stage,” but some

local businesses had been spoken

to about “plans for the future.”

He said DCL was currently

working with two land-owning

parties in Lyttelton.

Quarry consultation a ‘PR stunt’

• By Anan Zaki

COMMUNITY consultation

over a controversial quarry

planned for the outskirts of

Christchurch has been labelled a

publicity stunt.

People living close to the

proposed 170ha Fulton Hogan

quarry near Templeton say they

have heard little from the company.

Fulton Hogan says it regularly

consults with businesses,

neighbours and residents since

forming a sevenmember

community

advisory

group in May.

A member

of the advisory

group

told a quarry

neighbour it met

Craig

Stewart

fortnightly for

eight sessions,

but has stopped

meeting since August 30.

But a Fulton Hogan spokeswoman

says it has other forms of

consultation, such as an information

centre at the proposed quarry

site at Curraghs, Dawsons,

Jones and Maddisons Rds.

Maddisons Rd llama farmer

Anne Thompson believes the

consultation is a “PR stunt”.

Until Tuesday, she was not

contacted by the advisory group

since its formation.

The first contact was a

Facebook message from a

member of the advisory group.

Ms Thompson said the member

informed her that Fulton Hogan

created the meeting agenda and

covered issues such as noise and

dust.

The member also told Ms

Thompson that the advisory

group will meet again if there is

a need.

“How can seven people represent

the community? It’s just

rubbish,” Ms Thompson said.

The advisory group member

did not want to comment about

the advisory group to The Star,

and referred questions to Fulton

Hogan.

Said Fulton Hogan South

Island general manager Craig

Stewart: “The [advisory

group] is made up of members

representing a wide cross-section

of the community, including

immediate neighbours.”

Dawsons Rd horse trainer

Sandi Curtin said it was “bizarre”

for Fulton Hogan to say it

has been consulting with the

neighbours and businesses.

“We certainly haven’t heard

HUNTER

anything from the community

advisory group,” she said.

“If there have been any

discussions, they have been very

secretive about it.”

Mrs Curtin said her family’s

55-year horse training business

will be lost because quarry trucks

will pose a danger to the horses

which race on a track next to

Dawsons Rd.

The Weedons Residents’

Association is part of the

advisory group, but the

Templeton Residents’ Association

declined to join, Mr Stewart said.

Weedons Residents’ Association

secretary Gary Doyle said

Fulton Hogan left many questions

unanswered.

They were not exactly the

most forthcoming. They have

not put up any details that are

concrete,” Mr Doyle said.

“But until they make the

[resource consent] application,

there’s not much anyone can do.”

Templeton Residents’ Association

chairman Garry Kilday said

Fulton Hogan wanted to meet

the six-member No Quarry

sub-committee, not the wider

community.

The reason we declined to

attend was we didn’t believe the

sub-committee could speak for

2500 Templeton residents.

“If [Fulton Hogan] inform the

community as a group about

what’s going on, we will look at

it,” Mr Kilday said.

He said the company should

meet the community at the residents’

convenience.

Curraghs Rd resident Simon

Moore had not heard from the

advisory group either.

“I’m half a kilometre away and

they certainly haven’t [contacted]

me, none of my neighbours have

been contacted either.”

Fulton Hogan expects to lodge

resource consent applications

early next month.

City council officers wanted

a three-year term due to

Tall Blacks visit

• By Julia Evans

NEARLY $175,000 has been spent

on getting Horncastle Arena up to

scratch for the Tall Blacks game.

Two scoreboards, two backboards

and two shot clocks have

been purchased by the city council

for $174,189 in preparation

for the game against Jordan on

November 29.

“Securing this equipment now

means we can host basketball

matches at Horncastle Arena until

the Metro Sports Facility opens in

late 2021,” said head of recreation,

sports and events Nigel Cox.

The scoreboards, backboards

and shot clocks had to be purchase

to meet FIBA hosting requirements.

It is the first time the

Tall Blacks will play in the city in

14 years since they upset Australia

80-75 in 2004. The game against

Jordan is an Asian zone second

round FIBA World Cup qualifier.

The equipment will ultimately

be used at the long-awaited $300

million Metro Sports Facility.

Construction of the centre is

expected to start early next year

with ground works currently

under way.

The more than 30,000m 2 facility

will include a 10-lane, 50m competition

pool with spectator seating,

a diving pool, leisure pools,

hydroslides, multi-purpose indoor

courts, group fitness rooms, an

aquatic sensory space, and a high

performance sports centre.

It is set to be the largest aquatic

Residents’ quake isolation issues

Funding call

for disaster

psychologist

• By Julia Evans

A DISASTER psychologist could

investigate post-quake issues for

one of the hardest hit suburbs

from the February 22, 2011,

event.

And it could set a precedent

for other isolated suburbs.

The Dallington Community

Trust has asked for funding

from the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board for a disaster

psychologist to look into the ongoing

effects of social isolation

in the area.

Trustee and long-term

resident David Collins said

a large number of people on

the edge of the residential red

zone feel very isolated as a

result of the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

“We lost 50 per cent of our

population,” he said.

“We also lost St Paul’s School

and church, a rest home, the

Orbiter bus route, the medical

centre and chemist and we’re

about to lose Banks Ave School.”

Mr Collins said some residents

have to travel through red zone

just to get to their property.

“Everyday they’re constantly

reminded of what they’ve lost,

the long-term residents really

find it difficult.”

Mr Collins said the group

wants a disaster psychologist

to investigate the extent of the

issue.

“We want to find out how big

the issue is and then turn that

around into a wellness programme.”

Board member and trust

chairwoman Linda Stewart said

the issues stem in suburbs on the

fringe of the residential red zone

from the loss of housing and

people in the communities.

There are pockets in the east

that are so isolated and totally

unable to move on,” Ms Stewart

said.

The area has become meaningless,

the meaning of community

is gone.”

Ms Stewart said the social

isolation has become so extreme,

in some people it is a “low

level of post traumatic stress

disorder.”

Warning over leopard seal

• By Matt Salmons

OPEN WIDE: The juvenile

leopard seal which came up

on Sumner Beach.

A MARINE biologist is warning

people to be wary around

leopard seals on Canterbury

beaches.

It comes after a leopard seal

came on to Sumner Beach last

week.

The seal was photographed

Sumner woman Hanna Zhionberg

who had been heading out

to paddleboard on Tuesday night.

Marine mammal biologist

Krista Hupman had been researching

leopard seal sightings

in New Zealand for about three

years.

She said in spite of most

people’s impressions, visiting

leopard seals were “not unusual

at all,” with up to 50 seals visiting

New Zealand each year.

Dr Hupman said it was difficult

to say why the creature

was here.

“It seems each leopard seal has

their own agenda. It’s hard to say

what each one is up to.”

The Department of Conservation

website recommended staying

at least 20m away from any

leopard seal and keeping dogs

on a leash.

Dr Hupman said the animals

could inflict serious injury, but

would not normally attack people

as they were usually on the

best to rest.

They’re not this aggressive

animal that people have in

their minds,” Dr Hupman

said.

Ms Zhionberg said she had

not heard of a leopard seal visiting

the area in the two years she

had lived in Sumner.

“I was honestly, really excited.

Antarctica for me is at the

top of my bucket list. Getting

something from Antarctica to

come here is really awesome.”

Demolition of school will be bittersweet

• By Matt Salmons

IT WILL be a bittersweet feeling

for Redcliffs School when

physical demolition of its former

buildings starts in just over a

But opponents of the move still

hope it can be delayed.

A Ministry of Education

spokeswoman has said

preparation for

the demolition

would begin

either today

or tomorrow.

The physical

demolition of

Chris

the buildings

would then

begin after

Labour Weekend and last up to

six weeks, she said.

Redcliffs School principal

Rose McInerney said it would

be “bittersweet” to see the old

buildings demolished, but the

heart of the school “is its people.”

“For us, it is a sign of the

progress of the new rebuild and

coming home [to Redcliffs].”

THe Friends of Redcliffs Park

had been fighting the demolition

and the planned construction of

a new school in Redcliffs Park.

THe group had been set to

meet with the Workforce and

Education Select Committee

on September 19 to discuss a

petition they sent to Parliament

earlier in the year. That meeting

had been delayed until October

17.

Group member Chris Doudney

planned demolition start.

“Certainly the ministry said

they were going to demolish the

Mr Doudney said the group

had asked the select committee

to request the ministry to delay

the demolition until after it had

finished the process.

“THey said they can’t order it,

they could ask. I had hoped the

ministry would have taken notice

of what the select committee

said.”

Previously, the ministry had

said that the demolition would

not be delayed by the progress of

Mr Doudney said he would feel

better if the ministry held off for

another two weeks at least.

“I doubt we’ll be lying

from the site as they could.

Weaving goodbye to plastic supermarket bags

• By Sophie Cornish

AS NEW Zealanders face the

end of the plastic bag era, one

woman is helping the cause with

an ancient Maori tradition.

Lana Hart is the

founder of Kai Baskets,

an initiative to help

shoppers reduce their

plastic consumption –

and it’s proving popular.

The company’s

Facebook page has

reached 250,000 people

in 10 days.

The baskets, made

entirely of flax, are designed to

hang on the side of trolleys and

are used to hold fresh produce.

Kai Baskets began its first

pilot programme at the end

last month at Raeward Fresh

Lana Hart

Tower Junction. Like trolleys,

the baskets are free to use for

customers.

The project came about

through Ms Hart’s own

frustration when food shopping

for her family of five.

“I would end up walking

home with a bunch of

plastic bags that I didn’t

want . . . I always just

wanted them to provide

something to cart the

produce from the produce

section to the checkout.”

she said.

Ms Hart said it “made

sense” to use a plant material

which is prevalent in New

Zealand and has already been

traditionally woven into Maori

kete – flax baskets.

A small team of about 30,

many of whom are volunteers,

worked on creating the baskets,

which are made from the

same design as wahakura baby

baskets, which are made for

newborns to help reduce cot

death.

The pilot is being funded by

the Sustainable Initiatives Fund

Trust.

To keep them clean, the

flax baskets are sanitised at the

time as the trolleys and other

baskets.

One basket can take about

45min to weave.

However a lot of preparation

work happens before this to

prepare the flax for weaving.

This includes stripping and

measuring the flax, boiling it to

get rid of germs and then airdrying

it.

shoppers reduce their plastic usage by introducing flax

baskets to hold fresh produce.

wish to name.

“I think he was sleeping,

if I hadn’t of known his

name, he may have not

woken up and responded

. . . it was so intense, I hate

fire, the heat was unbearable.”

He appeared a bit

“dazed and confused,”

said Mrs Worsdale who

then helped to pull him

out of the window.

“I tried to get him to

jump but he couldn’t. I

pulled him from under the

armpits and dragged him

out of the window.”

Fire investigator Wayne

Hamilton said the fire

had been caused by unattended

cooking while the

man was in his sunroom.

The house did not have

working smoke alarms.

The fire continued to

burn for more than an hour.

Mrs Worsdale said she

was driven by adrenaline

to help her neighbour, who

thanked her profusely.

“It all happened so fast. I

am just so grateful and so

pleased he’s alive . . . I gave

him some water, a blanket

and a hug. He was very

confused and shaken up.”

Mr Hamilton said the

incident acts as a timely

reminder that all homes

should have working

long-life photoelectric

smoke alarms in every

sleeping area in a house.

DREDGING WORK will begin

on the lower Heathcote River to

help reduce flood risk.

The dredging is part of the

city council’s land drainage

recovery programme and will

be carried out by contractor City

Care between Opawa Rd and the

Woolston Cut (an engineered

channel).

The work

below Opawa

Rd will remove

more than

20,000 cu m of

sediment that

has built up

since regular

dredging of the

river stopped

in the mid-1980s.

The river will be closed to recreational

vessels such as kayaks

and canoes, between Opawa Rd

and Radley Park, while dredging

is under way.

City council land drainage

manager Keith Davison said it

will restore capacity lost after

the earthquakes and through

ongoing silt deposits in the lower

Heathcote River channel.

“By restoring the capacity of

the river channel, the risk of

properties and streets flooding

during heavy rainfall will be

reduced, benefiting local residents

and those who live further

upstream,” he said.

There will be some disruption

while this project is carried out

but the contractor will minimise

that as much as possible and we

think the benefits to residents in

the long-term will be valuable.”

Mr Davison said the dredging

will also remove contaminated

sediment which entered the river

from commercial and street

storm water run-off to improve

the habitat in the river.

“This will complement benefits

from the new storm water filter

being built nearby on Richardson

Tce.”

“We’ll be planting native trees

and plants during the landscaping

phase following the dredging work

which will enhance the ecological

and landscape values of the area.”

The project will be carried out

in two stages.

Stage one, between Radley

St and the Woolston Cut, will

begin with tree removals from

riverbanks this week before

dredging with an excavator and

barge starts at Connal Reserve in

mid-October.

Work on this reach below Radley

St will continue until June,

Heathcote River dredging to reduce flooding risk

Keith Davison

A CHRISTCHURCH

hairdresser’s illegal take of cats’

eyes and paua displayed a blatant

disregard for the health and

future sustainability of a precious

fishery, says the Ministry for

Primary Industries.

Haiqiang Lin, 25, was

sentenced in the district court

after earlier pleading guilty to

gathering three times the legal

limit of paua, the majority of

which were undersized, as well as

three times the legal limit of cats’

eyes from an area in the Akaroa

Harbour Taiapure.

PROGRESS: The city council is set to begin dredging on the Heathcote River.

He was fined $2000 and

ordered to pay court costs of

$390.

Lin was caught after MPI

fishery officers on patrol in

the area in March, became

suspicious and pulled his vehicle

over for inspection.

After initially denying he had

gathered shellfish or paua from

the area, he admitted, under

further questioning, that he had

been.

THe fishery officers then

discovered 48 black-foot paua

– 45 of which were undersized,

ranging from 99mm to 124mm –

and 70 cats’ eyes. Only one paua

was of legal size (125mm).

MPI spokesman Howard Reid

said the offending was very

disappointing.

“THe Akaroa Harbour

Taiapure committee was

concerned enough for the

species in the harbour that they

established a lower catch limit

a few years ago to reduce the

fishing pressure,” he said.

“Under the revised regulations,

the limit for cats’ eyes is 20 per

person per day. Mr Lin clearly

took over three times that

limit.

“THese shellfish are a keystone

species in the food web in which

they exist. If these shellfish are

removed from the ecosystem,

a monoculture of algae could

result, severely reducing the

ability of other more highly

valued species, like mussels, to

exist in the area.”

Mr Reid said taking

undersized and excess paua is

also very damaging.

“THey are a slow-growing

Fire rages, homes at risk

including tidying up the site and

landscaping from April.

Walkways on both sides of

the river will be closed during

some periods of the work, with

safety fencing and signage in

place. Access will remain open

through Radley Park and to

Laura Kent Reserve through

Laura Kent Pl.

Stage two, between Opawa

Rd and Radley St, will also

start mid-October with dredging

by an excavator based on the

Clarendon Tce side of the river.

Dredging on the stage two

reach will be split into two phases

to minimise the impact on

whitebait during their spawning

season of March to June.

It is expected to be complete by

September.

There will be some parking

restrictions and traffic disruption,

including single-laning, on

Clarendon Tce while trucks are

being loaded.

The city council has asked residents

to keep children and pets at

a safe distance from the worksite

and construction machinery

while the project is underway.

Investigation and design work

for the Stage three reach from

Opawa Rd to Hansen Park is

underway and dredging of this

section is expected to happen late

next year through to early 2020.

$2000 fine for gathering illegal amount of seafood

shellfish. Daily limits are in

place to ensure enough paua

survive through to breeding

maturity to help sustain the

fishery. The taking of excess

and undersized paua threatens

the future sustainability of the

fishery and causes local depletion

which causes more stress to other

areas.”

Mr Reid says the fine

handed down to Lin, who has

previously been caught taking

excess paua and undersized

paua, should serve as a warning

to others.

Take a Kid

Fishing to

go ahead

• By Ashleigh Monk

TAKE A Kid Fishing will go

ahead as planned on Sunday.

Weed eradication efforts at

The Groynes lakes in August

meant the event which starts at

9am was at risk of being postponed

due to chemicals in the

lakes – but the city council has

given the all clear.

“Weed control has been completed

for now, and it is likely

that we will need to do some

necessary follow up later in the

year,” city council head ranger

coastal and plains ​Robbie

Hewson said.

A chemical treatment that

was harmless to fish and plant

life was used to eradicate an invasive

weed, lagrosiphon major,

which was choking the lakes.

The weed, which formed

dense mats of vegetation, had

affected lakes at the popular

recreation reserve since 2014.

The reserve’s fishing lakes

were closed on August 12 and

reopened on August 23.

The weeds were then removed

by a mechanical harvester six

weeks after the spraying.

Nurse works to cure poverty

• By Sophie Cornish

A CHRISTCHURCH Hospital

nurse is doing her part to “break

a small pocket of poverty.”

In 2014, Aimee Mackey saw

a post on Facebook about a

12-year-old Ugandan boy who

had died after not receiving

medical care.

She said the post stuck with

her and she decided to donate

some money to feel better – but it

wasn’t enough.

The caption on the post said if

he lived in the developed world,

he would have gone to school on

Monday. That stuck with me, I

felt like he followed me, he was in

my dreams,” she said.

Now, Mrs Mackey and her

friend, Melanie Sutton, support

36 children through their small

charity, Hope for Orphans International.

Located in Uganda, the organisation

leases a foster home for

orphans and runs a community

outreach programme.

The children receive full education,

adequate nutrition and

medical care.

Within the orphanage, there is

a mix of children who have been

abandoned, orphaned or their

MAKING A DIFFERENCE: Christchurch Hospital nurse

Aimee Mackey started a charity with her friend in 2014

which is changing the lives of children in Uganda.

families cannot be traced.

The community outreach programme

provides families who

are struggling with the means to

start self-sustaining projects that

will help them earn income.

Mrs Mackey is in touch daily

through Skype and Facebook

with the children and the social

worker employed by the charity.

“This enables our donors to

create meaningful relationships

with the children and receive accurate

and current updates of the

difference their financial support

is helping achieve.”

“I am so passionate about it

. . . I love that we have an opportunity

to do something that will

have a future impact . . . I want

to help break a small pocket of

poverty,” she said.

The children speak both

Lugandan and English.

The home functions like a

family. About 18 of the children

have all grown up together since

they were two or three-yearsold.”

Mrs Mackey and her husband

Joshua visits Uganda every 12-18

months and will travel there

again in November with their

two children, eight-year-old Eden

and four-year-old Lily.

Mrs Mackey said they “scrimp

and scrounge” for the charity

where they can but paying for

school fees in Uganda can be

overwhelming.

in the past have helped to raise

money including, mufti-days, car

Trading concern stalls Sumner project

• By Matt Salmons

ARCHAEOLOGICAL interest

and concern for summer

businesses have stalled work on

the Sumner Master Plan.

Originally slated to begin last

month, stage one of the Marriner

St-west and Wakefield Ave

enhancement project will begin

in March.

City council

manager

planning

and delivery

transport Lynette

Ellis said

Sumner business

owners

Darrell

Latham

had expressed

concern that

construction

could impact

their summer trading.

“So this is why work is

scheduled to start in March,” she

said.

Sumner Business Association

head Rachael Lonsdale said it

was “good to see” work would

happen over the winter months

and hoped concerns about the

number of car parks and the

location of a bus stop could be

resolved soon.

“We have been informed there

DELAY: The start date for planned works for the area of Wakefield Ave and Marriner St in Sumner

has been delayed until March. ​

will be a meeting to discuss the

works closer to the time.

“From a business point of view,

this would be better if it is sooner

rather than later so we can make

any preparations in a timely

manner.”

Initially, it was believed an

Accidental Discovery Protocol

would have been sufficient to

cover the project for risk of

archaeological discoveries.

This meant that if there was

any discovery during work on

the project, Heritage New Zealand

would be notified and work

would stop.

However, due to the discovery

of human remains last year near

the Sumner surf club, and the

risk of further discoveries in

the area, it was decided a full

archaeological authority was

required.

Ms Ellis said the authority

had was granted on September

21 but the appeal period

ended on Saturday. The

authority would require an

archaeologist to be on site during

excavations.

It also required that Ngāi

Tūāhuriri were informed prior

to work beginning in archaeological

areas.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham said there had

been “several delays” to the first

stage of the village upgrade.

He said the decision to delay

work due to the need for an

archaeological authority was “a

disappointment” but “the correct

one.”

Work was estimated to be

completed by September 2019.

This put it only two weeks

behind the original plan, as the

two planned phases of work over

a total eight-month period had

been combined into one phase

over six months.

Works planned in the

enhancement project included

making the area more accessible

to cyclists and pedestrians,

adding shaded seating and more

planting.

Ross Gray

Artist uses his work as a way of

Former teacher, artist

and heritage advocate

Ross Gray is on a

mission to protect the

city’s historic buildings.

He talks to Julia Evans

before Heritage Week

starts tomorrow about

how he got behind

the placard line and

the importance of our

history

Tell me a little bit about

yourself?

So basically I grew up in the

1950s in Wanganui, which still

has a wonderful collection of

heritage buildings and also

has a very strong visual arts

culture. I came to art school in

Christchurch in the mid-1960s

and trained and worked as a

secondary school art and art

history teacher. Then I worked

as a tertiary drawing tutor,

all the time maintaining my

practice as an exhibiting painter.

It was quite hard work. Having

retired, I’m still trying to be the

full-time painter, which I could

never been throughout all those

years. Although heritage matters

do take up a lot of my time, my

painting is actually quite closely

related to this.

How did you get into heritage

conservation?

From teaching secondary

school art history, I’ve long had

an interest in periods and style in

architecture. My introduction to

heritage activism and advocacy

was in the mid-1990s when

suddenly eight Christchurch

heritage buildings were

threatened with demolition. I

joined others in a group called

SOB – Save Our Buildings – and

we protested vigorously. One of

them was the Papanui Railway

Station, which has been turned

into a cafe, another was a house

just opposite the Christchurch

Art Gallery, which survived.

Some were saved but shamefully

others like the beautiful Kaiapoi

CAMPAIGNER:

Ross Gray has

been painting

since he got

his first set of

oils in primary

school.

Woollen Mills building, at the

bottom of lower Manchester

St, were demolished. During

this time, as a board member of

the Christchurch Civic Trust,

I was involved in the retention

of several heritage buildings in

the square. But this activism

was dramatically reignited

post the September 4, 2010,

earthquake with the imminent

demolition of the wonderful

Manchester Courts building

and has continued pretty much

unabated since then. That was

the beginning of the full-on

activism and has involved

writing quite a few letters to the

editor, being deputy chair of

two voluntary groups, Historic

Places Canterbury and the

Christchurch Civic Trust. Also

being a committee member of

Restore Christ Church Cathedral

Group, along with things like

organising campaign rallies, for

example The Majestic Theatre

and organising the running of

the award-winning heritage

display and info centre, Shop 7

in Cathedral Junction. That was

hard work, organising rosters and

things, but I quite enjoyed it.

What is it about heritage that

is so important to a city?

The meaning of heritage is

broadening, as your article

last week showed with the city

council’s heritage strategy policy.

But in terms of built heritage,

a city without its architectural

heritage is perhaps like, sadly,

a mind without its memory.

When people talk about a listed

building, they mean a heritage

building which related to

Heritage New Zealand’s list of

buildings. The city council also

has a list of heritage buildings

called the schedule and there

is confusion between the

two. Listed and/or scheduled

heritage buildings are the taonga

(treasures) which we should

pass on to our descendants

having inherited them from our

forebears whose ideas, aspirations

and skills are embodied in the

buildings – the past linking to

the present and to the future. A

so-called city without the layers

of architectural time, styles and

associated memories is no real

city. Heritage buildings are the

most significant part of the city’s

collective memory in my view,

everyone shares in them through

the public memory rather than

the private memory.

What impact did the

earthquakeS have on

Christchurch’s heritage?

Unfortunately far, far more

than it should have. Many of the

heritage buildings which gave

Christchurch its rich identity

would still be here (along

with all the new ones needed),

restored or awaiting restoration,

if the Government at the time,

National-led, had shown more

awareness of and sensitivity to

our city’s cultural values once the

immediate emergency was over.

We’re evolving...

Our latest neighbourhood, ‘The Borough, Faringdon’ has just

been released and it’s got the great bones you need to build

preserving heritage buildings

Amongst other things it took

far too long (nearly four years)

to develop a heritage recovery

programme and from mid-2011

until its demise, CERA enabled

reluctant owners to demolish

their listed heritage buildings

with no opportunity for the

public to object to this, with no

democratic voice . The website

developed by one of my heritage

colleagues, Lynne Lochhead,

shows 250 demolished listed

and or scheduled heritage

buildings. This kind of heritage

destruction following a natural

disaster is unprecedented in

the world and the historic

heritage loss and environmental

impact of embodied energy loss,

greenhouse gas emissions and so

on has itself been disastrous.

What are some of your

favourite examples of heritage

buildings around the city?

Had it not been for the quake,

I would be saying the former

Christchurch Railway station

and CPIT War Memorial

Hall, the Regent Theatre and

the former Millers building,

Cranmer Courts,which we

mounted a month-long protest

outside during its demolition

in 2012, and many others. But

amongst those still here, the

Old Government Building and

the former Chief Post Office,

Christ Church Cathedral and

the Cathedral of the Blessed

Sacrament, the newly restored

Midland and nearly restored

Public Trust building, the Isaac

Theatre Royal, the Duncan

building on lower High St.

I’m thrilled that McLean’s

Mansion, which has a special

part in the history and hearts of

Christchurch is being restored by

the McLean’s Mansion Charitable

Trust. Three of the four board

inspired you?

A recent brief stay in Victoria

in British Colombia, Canada,

where my brother lives, showed

similar heritage buildings to

what we had and which we could

still have many, including lots

of beautiful late 19th-century

brick buildings. Madrid also

has wonderful 19th and early

20th-century buildings, and

its many city squares are an

inspiration when considering the

redevelopment of our Cathedral

Square. We spent six weeks in

Germany and a visit to Dresden

showed what can be done when

heritage is valued and there’s a

will to restore. The Frauenkirche,

much, much more severely

damaged by Allied bombing

in 1945, a few weeks before

then end of the war, than either

of our cathedrals were by the

earthquakes, was finally fully

rebuilt a decade or so ago. It was

a huge job and they basically had

to start from scratch.

How did you get into

teaching?

Really by default. I had

absolutely no wish to be a teacher,

but looking back am very glad

I became one. At the time, late

1960s, I needed some income

to keep on being a painter so I

went to teachers’ college where I

met my wife, Lorraine, who was

training to be a language teacher.

We started off our long teaching

careers at Southland Boys’ High

School and worked our way

via Timaru Boy’s High School

back to Christchurch. With

lots of support from Lorraine I

maintained a combined teaching

and painting career for 40 or so

years. I was head of department

for art at Cashmere High School

in the 80s and 90s before I went

to CPIT to teach drawing in the

degree courses, including to

architectural studies students,

which I enjoyed very much.

Apart from institutional teaching

I ran my own art course called

Artmakers at Bishopdale for

some years and then was leader

of the Centre of Contemporary

Art Critique Group for three

years before the quakes. With

CoCA closed it became the

Critique Group Christchurch

which met at my studio and

has continued under its own

steam in the last two years. And

I taught an italics course at the

Canterbury Workers Education

Association in 2016, trying to

save the dying heritage of good

handwriting. It’s opposite CoCA

and has very good courses.

Tell me about your art career?

Well, in a sense it started in

late primary school when I got

my first set of oils, carrying on

through secondary school and

then at university. I’m what you’d

call a contemporary semi-abstract

painter. Since the mid 90s I’ve

had a general theme of the built

environment and the importance

of heritage buildings in the city,

ideas about which I explore in

acrylics with line, form, colour,

space and composition in layers

to try to relate to the “layers” of

time, history and memory in

the world of the city. And since

the quakes, to express my sense

of anger and frustration at so

much loss of heritage buildings

through unnecessary demolition.

I’ve exhibited widely in New

Zealand, including many times

in Christchurch at the CoCA –

which had been the Canterbury

Society of Arts until 1996.

My first Christchurch show

was exactly 50 years ago with

others in the old CSA Gallery

in Durham St, shamefully

demolished after the earthquakes.

My last one to date at CoCA, was

a large survey exhibition which

had only just opened when the

February 22, 2011, earthquake

struck. It was open for five days

before the quake and a lot of my

work we couldn’t get out for a

long time afterwards. I’m now

working towards a solo exhibition

booked for next October at

Chambers Art Gallery, behind

which is my studio on Moorhouse

Ave.

What do you do on a day off

from art and heritage?

I’m involved in politics,

which more or less comes into

everything really, including

heritage and into my painting

ideas. To be honest, I don’t really

have many days off. My main

relaxation is actually swimming,

hard work but very enjoyable. I’ve

competed a few times in swim

events at Masters Games. Almost

every day I do 1km or 2km and

building up at Jellie Park, which

is a great way to start the day.

Little River Band to headline festival

WELL KNOWN for classic

songs Cool Change, Lonesome

Loser and Take it Easy on Me,

Little River Band will return to

New Zealand to headline Selwyn

Sounds on March 2.

The band is known for a string

of instantly recognisable hits

and was described by Eagles

founding member Glenn Frey

as “the best singing band in the

world.”

Total worldwide album sales

and digital downloads of the

band’s music now top 30 million

and the group was the very first

to have had top 10 hits for six

consecutive years.

It will be the first time the

current line-up has toured here

since the introduction of new

rhythm and lead guitarist Colin

Whinnery in February.

Whinnery, of Nashville,

brings a new voice and outlook

to the band’s rhythm section

while sharing lead vocal duties

with the longest standing band

member Wayne Nelson.

Currently on a busy tour

schedule in the United States, the

band will only have a week break

between a February 22 show in

California and Selwyn Sounds.

Little River Band’s next

international tour after Selwyn

Sounds is set for Germany late

HITS: Little River Band will play at Selwyn Sounds on Saturday, March 2, at Lincoln Domain.

next year.

Originally formed in

Melbourne in 1975, the band’s

sound quickly became popular.

Within eight months of forming,

Little River Band had three

Australian top 20 singles and

two top 10 albums.

They first travelled to the US in

1976 and are now based there.

The line-up of members has

changed many times over the

years and is now completely

different from the original

group. The last original member

to leave was Derek Pellicci in the

1990s.

The last Australian member,

Greg Hind, left the group earlier

this year and was replaced by

Whinnery.

Nelson fronts the band on lead

vocals and bass, supported by

keyboardist Chris Marion, lead

guitarist Rich Herring, drummer

Ryan Ricks and newcomer

Whinnery.

Over their last few shows, the

band has often opened with It’s

A Long Way There before closing

the set with crowd-favourite

Lonesome Loser.

The band was inducted into

the Australian Recording

Industry Association hall of

fame at the 18th annual ARIA

Music Awards in 2004 and Cool

Change is rated as one of the top

30 Australian songs of all time.

Library’s grand opening

I’VE BEEN looking forward

to this week for months – the

official opening of Tūranga.

This is the name that has been

chosen for the flagship central

city library. It is so much more

than a library, and from 1pm

tomorrow it will be open to

all.

When I was a child, it was an

absolute treat to come into the

town library. We had our own

library in Papanui, but going to

town was special.

It was a magnificent brick

building on the corner of

Cambridge Tce and Hereford St.

I can still remember the feeling

of entering the building and

going into the children’s library,

such is the strength of that

childhood memory.

Tūranga will create a new

set of memories for a new

generation in a way I would

never have dreamed as a child.

The Discovery Wall, for a start,

will engage people in the city,

telling our history and allowing

people to share their experiences

as well. I’m sure it will become

a renowned selfie spot for locals

and visitors alike.

This is a place designed by and

for the people who will use it,

with the ‘your library your voice’

consultation attracting nearly

2500 ideas, many of which have

been incorporated.

It is literally jam-packed with

experiences.

A BREAKAWAY Anglican

in the wake of the same-sex

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

Fire rages, homes at risk

Bike Expo gets rolling on Saturday

CHRISTCHURCH cyclists are a

diverse bunch

One of the challenges faced by

the NZ Bike Expo organisers was

how to stage an event for such a

diverse community of cyclists.

There isn’t just one style of

bike, nor one style of riding,” said

event organiser Krissy O’Connor.

“While that produces a rich

mosaic of choice for cyclists, it

means we have to work hard

to ensure the weekend offers

something for every rider.”

The Cycling Action Network is

the national organisation behind

the NZ Bike Expo.

Its desire is to have more

people on bikes, more often.

In Christchurch, with the

expanding network of dedicated

cycle routes, this goal can get

snagged in the ‘getting to work’

debate with drivers and cyclists

often at loggerheads.

The cycling community

is so much broader than just

commuting to work or school,”

Ms O’Connor explained.

“Fitness, friendship,

journeying, convenience,

challenge, or cost-saving are all

reasons to hop on a bike any day

of the week.”

Community groups such as

Spokes Canterbury, Go Cycle

Christchurch, Frocks on Bikes,

Canterbury Mountain Bike Club,

Revolve and Southerncross CX

support cycling in the city.

All are involved with Biketober,

Christchurch’s annual cycling

festival, and the NZ Bike Expo,

which is its cornerstone event.

“Having the NZ Bike Expo

bring the bike industry and rider

community together is important

for Christchurch,” said Robert

Fleming, Biketober co-ordinator.

“Where else can a family testride

electric-assist cargo bikes

on a car-less runway, an elite

rider discuss the latest frames

and rims with multiple brands,

or a beginner rider compare bike

styles to find the right one for

their purpose – all in the one

place?”

This breadth of diversity also

extends to the Expo speaker lineup.

For instance, Christchurchborn

Anton Cooper was the 2015

world under-23 cross-country

mountain bike champion, and

now races professionally at the

front of the world circuit.

He will speak from the same

platform as Julie Milne, who will

share her story of using cycling

to stay mobile, countering the

effects of childhood strokes.

From bike stands and racks

to components. From e-bikes

and tandems to children’s bikes.

From new apparel – there will be

changing rooms on site – to prize

draws and competitions, the NZ

Bike Expo is the place for cycling

gear.

“We also believe in education

and experiences,” said Ms

O’Connor.

“A bus and big-rig will be open

for visitors to sit in, to appreciate

what drivers of large vehicles can,

QUALITY: The NZ Bike

Expo runs over the

weekend and is the

cornerstone event of the

Biketober festival.

and cannot, see. And national

and overseas cycle tour operators

will be on hand to help riders

choose just the right ‘bucket list’

adventure.”

To ensure visitors get the most

from the two-day expo, entry

tickets this year are come-and-go.

There is so much to take in,”

said Ms O’Connor. “We don’t

want people to feel rushed.”

The NZ Bike Expo takes

place on Saturday and

Sunday, 10am-5pm at the

Air Force Museum of New

Zealand in Wigram.

•Plenty of bike and car

parking will be available,

as well as public transport

options.

Cycling fans stage Bike Expo

Four people and a dog make up the NZ

Bike Expo organising team. After months

of planning, they’re now set to bring

Christchurch a weekend of ‘everything

cycling’, but first let’s find out what spins

the team’s individual wheels.

Leading the crew is Krissy O’Connor,

a sport cyclist with a passion for crosscountry

mountain biking and cyclocross.

Popular in Europe, cyclocross riders

complete multiple short-course laps and

must carry their bikes over obstacles or

across unrideable terrain. Any rider can

try cyclocross at the Expo on Sunday

morning, with a give-it-a-go grade before

the open competition.

A bike trailer is top of Krissy’s cycling

wish list, so that she can tow Karli (the

Expo dog) behind her e-bike, to reach

running trails a little further from home.

The concept of sustainable

transportation is what drives Kate Bevin.

Prior to joining the Expo team, she was

finding solutions for a regional council to

make it easier for residents to make cycling

their primary form of commuting. It’s no

surprise that Kate is a fan of the bike racks

on Canterbury’s Metro buses, and there

will be a bus at the Expo for visitors to

experience how easy it is to load their bike.

Mike Molony is the team’s self-confessed

bike junkie. The ten bikes in his garage

cover nearly any ride: full-suspension

cross-country, Gary Fisher single speed,

cyclocross racing, winter commuting with

full mudguards, yet there are still times he

borrows his fiancé’s e-bike to get to work.

The only gap in Mike’s collection is a road

bike, so he will have an eye on the Expo

exhibitor specials. That is assuming he

has time, as Mike is emcee for Saturday’s

‘Battle of the Garage Mechanic’ – amateur

bike mechanics competing in a series of

Expo pressure tests.

Describing herself as the team’s ‘Jo

Average on a bike’, Jo Mackay rides her one

bike every day to go where she needs to,

and wears regular clothes doing it. After

riding so many kilometres on her 15-yearold

mountain bike, she’s finding it difficult

to replace her trusted steed.

“I’m looking forward to trying out some

options at Expo,” Jo explained. “I want to

see if an upright urban bike is for me, or

whether I should stick with the mountain

bike frame and just change out some parts

with around-town components.”

Jo also wants to know more about New

Zealand’s cycle trail network, and dreams

of taking an overseas riding adventure.

With this level of biking passion and

experience within the NZ Bike Expo team,

it’s no surprise that the programme and

exhibitor list caters to both beginner and

experienced cyclists, on any type of bike.

IT’S THAT time of year again,

tomato time.

Each year when I come to

share my tips and tricks on my

favourite crop I come across

things I didn’t know. Like, did

you know that the first tomatoes

in Europe were yellow varieties?

Over time breeders crosspollinated

tomatoes to breed red

cultivars.

Anyway, now that most of the

frosts have packed up, and the

days and nights are considerably

warmer, tomatoes can be planted.

If you live in a pocket where the

odd late frost can appear this

month, hold off planting yours

for a few weeks – unless they are

going into pots or tubs, then you

can tuck them somewhere warm

if need be.

Garden centres are jam-packed

with plants in all shapes and

sizes. Small seedlings are in

punnets, priced up between $4

and $5 each, or there are plenty as

individual plants, varying in price

depending on size and whether

or not they have been grafted. A

grafted tomato has a phenomenal

growth rate and generally

produces a larger plant, therefore

more tomatoes. You don’t need to

plant as many grafted tomatoes

because they produce more fruit.

THE BASICS

Sun, sun & more sun

If you cannot find a spot in full

sun away from blustery winds, you

can forget about growing

a decent crop. All-day sun will

produce the best crop; a few hours

in the shade is okay, but they need

at least half a day in full sun.

SOIL MATTERS

When planting in the ground,

blend in compost or tomato mix

first. This enables the soil to hold

on to more moisture. At this time

I blend in my tomato fertiliser,

too, then water the soil well. If

you can, do this a week before

you put the plants in the ground.

FOOD FIRST

Tomatoes are greedy beggars;

Time of year to think tomatoes

TANGY: Make sure to give your tomatoes plenty of support.

they just love food, particularly

tomato food which is blended

to promote healthy roots, strong

flower formation and fruit

development. This specialty

fertiliser is like a multi-vitamin for

tomatoes and does not contain as

much nitrogen as general fertilisers

do. Too much nitrogen in the soil

promotes more leaves as opposed

to flowers, which is not what we

want in tomatoes or other fruit

crops such as chillies, eggplants or

zucchini. A bag of tomato food will

last you a season or two.

TUBS, TROUGHS &

PLANTERS

Tomatoes are a good option for

growing in pots and containers.

Big is best when it comes to the

size of container, as they suck

up water and nutrients at rate of

knots. Therefore, the plant needs

to be able to develop a large root

system to supports its growth

habit. The potting mix needs to

be top notch, too, with plenty of

fertiliser and an ability to hold

onto ample amounts of water.

Suppliers make it easy and make

specific tomato mixes, which

you’ll find easily in the shops. If

you wanted to make your own,

blend equal parts of compost,

well-rotted manure and grit for

the base, then work in tomato

fertiliser prior to planting. The

risk with homemade mixes are

weeds and the potential that they

can ‘heat up’ if the compost or

manure isn’t fully mature.

SUPPORT

Most tomatoes require staking

to support the stem, which will

carry the weight of the crop as

it develops. Staking also helps

keep the fruit off the ground.

New dwarf and ground-covering

varieties don’t need this extra

support, however. Choose a

big fat stake or use a couple of

bamboo canes.

HOW TO GROW TOMATOES

IN A STRAW BALE

This season, as I have a limited

amount of soil space in which to

grow tomatoes, I have decided to

grow a few in pea-straw bales. A

couple of gardening friends do it

and they suggested I try it. So far

so good.

1. Select your sunny tomotogrowing

spot, bearing in mind

that once the bales become wet

they are not that easy to move.

2. Hydrate the bale of straw.

This takes about

a week of watering it once a day.

3. Sit the bale on its side and

remove about

10 handfuls of straw from the

centre of the bale to make a hole,

leaving the sides intact. Combine

tomato mix and tomato fertiliser

and put this into the hole you

have created.

4. Water and leave overnight to

dry out.

5. The following morning, plant

your tomato – and, if you like,

some companions such

as parsley and calendula.

Mine has been growing for a

month now, tucked up next to

the barn in which I live. It looks

healthy and is forming flowers

and setting fruit, so fingers

crossed it works. I am going to

try growing pumpkins using this

method, too!

CROP FAILURE

When things go wrong you can

normally attribute it with a few

main things:

Stress, through a lack of

hydration, is the cause of most

of the problems with tomatoes.

Once plants wilt and begin to

collapse numerous pests and

diseases can and will attack a

weak plant. Hence water is a

lifeline for tomatoes. The trick is

to water them deeply once or

twice a week, rather than a

little every day, especially when

planted in the ground. In pots

and containers, they will dry

out quicker, but in the ground,

you want to encourage the roots

to bury themselves deeply into

the cooler earth where water

is more available. Shallow or

light watering only encourages

the feeder roots to stay near the

surface where they often get burnt

when the soil heats up in the sun.

Poor plant nutrient is the

other main cause of problems.

If you expect your tomatoes to

be athletes in the garden, and

perform at their best, you need

to feed them on a regular basis,

especially when they are being

grown in tubs and containers.

QUESTION

GARDENING

ADVICE with

I use kaffir lime leaves a lot in Thai cooking but my plant’s leaves have become quite

yellow and speckly looking. How can I help it?

Today’s winning question came from Amy sinclair. Congratulations!

ANSWER

Yellowing leaves on your kaffir lime is

very typical of many citrus trees at this

time of the year. It is symptomatic of a

nutrient deficiency, especially nitrogen.

As ‘gross feeders’, citrus respond

very well to regular applications

of citrus fertiliser. Apply Daltons

Goldcote Fruit & Citrus Fertiliser

out to the drip line every 4-6 weeks

from early October as soil and

air temperatures rise, through till

Christmas. Recommence applications

from late February through to mid-

April which will help avoid this problem

occurring again next season.

Adding fresh Daltons Garden Time

Compost around the base of your tree

during the growing season will also

improve the organic content of your

soil and help with nutrient retention in

the soil.

and tips, check out our How

to Grow Citrus guide at

Tips to simplify your garden

WITH THE warmer

weather comes the

awareness that Christmas

is really not that far away.

Unfortunately, most of us

wait until the last minute

to work on our gardens,

just before the big day

arrives.

Often we find the task

either too big or too difficult,

hence a lot of us

leave it incomplete or even

worse, don’t start at all.

Well, here are some simple

tips to improve your outdoor

living areas.

1: If your garden is too

much to handle then simplify

it. Look at what plants

you have. Your likes and

dislikes. Too big or too

small? Leaf droppers or

sun blockers? The list goes

on. Ascertain what has to

go and get rid of them. You

may be surprised at how

simple things make a big

difference.

2: Remember, often less

is best. At this stage you

may need to seek some

professional advice to help

keep in mind the picture

you want to create.

3: If your garden and

plant maintenance is high

and you’re finding it hard

to cope, then weed out the

problem. For example, it

just maybe time to realise

that the roses are no longer

suitable. Remember you

can always substitute them

with an alternative plant.

4: Consider building

raised gardens with timber

or garden sleepers. Besides

adding a point of interest,

you have the added

benefits of a well drained

garden that is easier to

maintain. You may even

consider split level gardens

which will add an aesthetic

value to your piece of

paradise.

Introducing Sunyar

Events Organiser & Promoter

In Sunyars early 20s, he was involved

in a serious car accident and

should have died on the spot.

He says “From that night on,

I knew that something had

saved my life and I had no idea

what.” Eighteen months later,

he was introduced to Meditation,

Metaphysics, and Spiritualism

and since 1985 has been actively

promoting Spirituality. In 1987

Sunyar started a publishing, and

national distribution company,

importing new age products (books,

audios and tarot) into New Zealand and

met many lovely people and authors over

the years, like Louise L Hay, Solara, and Depak Chopra as well as

promoting a ‘one night only’ with Doreen Virtue at the Auckland

Town Hall in 2002.

Since 1997 he has been teaching weekly Meditation classes/courses,

creating a peaceful change in people’s lives.

His biggest hobby has been flying. After gaining his Private Pilots

Licence in 1985 and Commercial Pilots Licence in 1998, he went

on to achieve an Instructors Rating – and now teaches people to

fly aeroplanes. He says “When I don’t have my head in the clouds,

my feet are firmly on the ground, in the business world, and I’m

now promoting and growing Body Mind Spirit – Health Expo in

Christchurch.”

Pauaraisa on Kiwi Ferns debut

When the Kiwi Ferns take on the Jillaroos at Mt Smart Stadium on Saturday,

they will have a lone Canterbury presence in Sui Pauaraisa. Sports reporter

Gordon Findlater talks to the second-rower about balancing life and sport

SUI PAUARAISA could be the

definition of a real life wonder

woman. She represents two

nations in two different codes,

on top of that she fits in a fulltime

job while also being a

mother of two.

On Saturday, the 31-year-old

is set to make her debut for the

Kiwi Ferns when they play the

Jillaroos at Mt Smart Stadium in

Auckland after being named as

an interchange in coach Kelvin

Wright’s team.

Pauaraisa has represented her

country of birth Samoa in rugby

sevens and is also a member of

the Canterbury’s Farah Palmer

Cup side. In fact she thought she

would be in contention for the

Canterbury team that defeated

Auckland at the weekend

before receiving a phone call

from Wright two weeks ago.

“I think I cried when the

coach called me . . . it made

my day,” said Pauaraisa.

The second rower’s selection

for the Kiwi Ferns

comes on the back of

playing for the Warriors

in the inaugural WNRL

season.

During the campaign

– which saw

the team win one of

their three roundrobin

games –

Pauaraisa was based

in Auckland and

leading into the season

travelled north

two times a week

for training, which

involved starting her

job as an administrator

at

Christchurch Hospital at 6am to

finish in time for an afternoon

flight. She would arrive in Auckland

and go straight to training

before flying home to Christchurch

at 6am the next day to get

to work.

After moving to Auckland

from Samoa at 13, she played

rugby though school before putting

the sport on hold when she

became a mum.

In 2010, she moved to

Christchurch and began playing

rugby for Belfast.

“I only went back to playing

because I knew I was getting

quite big and just wanted something

to

do

to lose some weight . . . it was just

for fun and then it got serious.”

While playing union for Suburbs

four years ago, Pauaraisa’s

teammates introduced her to

league for the first time with the

Halswell Hornets. She’s since

played for the Papanui Tigers

before switching to the Linwood

Keas last year.

“Once I got introduced to

league I’ve absolutely loved it.”

During winter, Pauaraisa plays

union for Christchurch and

league for the Keas. On Tuesday

and Thursday, she trains with

Christchurch. On Wednesday

and Friday, she trains with the

Keas. Saturday is game day for

Christchurch, while on Sunday

she runs out for the Keas leaving

Monday as her one day off sport.

This year she helped both

clubs to win their respective

premier women’s titles.

Since returning from

the Warriors WNRL

campaign, Pauaraisa has

been training with the

Canterbury women’s

rugby union team.

The increased professionalism

in the

women’s 15s game

is something that

is also benefitting

her bid to take

her league game

to another level.

“I think it’s

because of the

culture and

how intense our

trainings are, so

it is a massive

advantage for

me. Even

the

skills we have you can bring into

league.”

The dedication to being in

shape for Saturday’s Kiwi Ferns

test goes beyond even training

four times a week. Most days she

goes for a run around Hagley

Park during her lunch break at

work.

Family is also a big part of her

life. While her recent accomplishments

with the Warriors

WNRL side and now the Kiwi

Ferns means time away from her

two daughters Pine and Paia, she

believes what she is doing is important

for the values she hopes

to pass on.

“We all want our kids to be

successful in life so we’ve got to

things like this because they’re

watching. They watch every step,

I know my girls watch every little

thing.”

“My oldest one [Pine] plays

netball, she says she’s going to

be a Silver Fern and the little

one [Paia] plays league with the

boys at Linwood . . . it’s a good

pathway for her.”

Being able to do what she does

wouldn’t be possible without

her husband Jerry, who has even

been helping with her individual

training sessions ahead of Saturday’s

test.

“Thank god for him. He cooks

dinner for us and does the

washing and is there to pick me

up from the airport when I was

travelling to Auckland.”

Pauaraisa was brought to

tears when she was able to play

in front of her family during

the Warriors 10-32 loss to the

Broncos last month. She was

surprised by the team’s sponsor

Flight Centre in the week leading

up to the game when she

was informed it was flying her

daughters and husband to their

match in Melbourne.

Although it is New Zealand

she will be representing on Saturday,

she won’t deny that Samoa

has a special place in her heart.

“My heart is always with

Samoa . . . I want to inspire the

girls there because they do have

so much talent in Samoa, but the

support is not really there for the

girls.”

Pauaraisa is hopeful of making

her debut for Samoa’s 15-a-side

team at the Oceania women’s

rugby tournament in Fiji next

month.

Saturday’s test against Australia

is part of a triple-header at Mt

Smart Stadium. The Junior Kiwis

play the Junior Kangaroos at

3pm, followed by the Kiwi Ferns

v Jillaroos at 5pm, and Kiwis v

Kangaroos at 7.45pm.

Teen bowls his way to Burnside singles title

THE BURNSIDE under-26

singles bowls tournament has

been won by Seamus Curtin

three years after he debuted at

the same event as a 15-year-old.

The Stokes Valley bowler

went undefeated throughout the

three-day tournament and beat

2016 champion Sheldon Bagrie-

Howley of Gore 21-17 in the final

on Sunday.

Curtin, 18, won all seven

of his section matches before

prevailing 21-20 in a tight

quarter-final against Finbar

McGuigan. He then defeated

Caleb Hope in a see-saw semifinal

21-17 to set up the final with

Bagrie-Howley who also went

through undefeated.

Bagrie-Howley dominated

early on to lead 8-3 after seven

ends. Both players produced

a series of bowls that saw shot

bowls and the jack move around

with the result being that the

ascendency at each end changed

with each shot played.

The 17th end proved to be

pivotal to the final result. Bagrie-

Howley held the shot adjacent

to the jack, but Curtin ran at

the head with his final bowl

removing the shot bowl and two

others from the head.

When the dust cleared, the

count was four to Curtin who

took the lead 16-13. Not to be out

done, Bagrie-Howley won the

next three ends to tie the game

16-16.

With both players producing

THE CANTERBURY boxing

team won 10 gold medals

at the national amateur

championships at the Hornby

The four-day event, which

finished on Saturday, saw Canterbury

win team of the tournament

for their effort in the ring.

No victory was more spectacular

than that of Sam Watt

The win also earned him the

was a humbling way to cap-off

a busy few weeks of preparation

The award is something

HIGHLY-RATED halfback Eri

Enari could make a timely return

for Canterbury as they head into

the business-end of the Mitre 10

Cup.

Enari played 50min for Canterbury

B in their match against

a Wellington development side

at the weekend. He is now in

contention to be selected for Joe

Maddock’s Canterbury side to

play Counties Manukau in their

final round-robin match of the

Mitre 10 Cup.

“He had a good run out and

looked really good,” said Maddock.

More will be known about

Enari’s return and how he has

recovered from injury when

Maddock names his team later

today for the match on Saturday.

“He’s been really unlucky with

injuries. We know how talented

he is and if he can get in a good

spell and stay away from injury,

he will accomplish a lot.”

Shortly after signing a twoyear

deal with the Crusaders

last October, Enari broke his leg

playing for Canterbury against

Auckland. It was his second

broken leg in the space of two

years, after he snapped his fibula

in 2015.

Enari had been rumoured

to make a return to provincial

rugby in August. However, due

to the nature of his double break,

caution has been taken with the

timing of his return.

The news of Enari’s return will

be music to the ears of Crusaders

coach Scott Robertson. The

21-year-old made his only

appearance for the franchise

against the Brumbies in week one

of the Super Rugby season last

year.

A win in Pukekohe on

Saturday is crucial if

Canterbury have any

hope of hosting a home

will also need Auckland to

Although that is out of

Canterbury’s control, with a playoff

spot already guaranteed next

week, carrying momentum into

the semi-final will be important

for the side.

“Is it critical, no. Is it

important, yes. The players that

before, they will know it’s

important,” Maddock said.

Canterbury are also expected

to be boosted by the return of

Smail new

Canterbury

rugby boss

THE CANTERBURY Rugby

Football Union announced

yesterday that Tony Smail has

been appointed its new chief

executive officer.

Smail, who has been acting

chief executive for the past three

months, was confirmed by the

CRFU board.

Smail replaced Nathan

Godfrey who resigned from the

organisation in August.

He joined the CRFU in 2012

as chief financial officer and has

been responsible for running

the finance, ticketing and

international high-performance

unit teams for both the CRFU

and Crusaders.

He joined the CRFU following

financial roles in the commercial

sector.

Smail played rugby for 40

years, at senior level in both

Invercargill and Christchurch,

and more recently with Belfast

and the president’s grade at

Prebbleton.

Smail moved to

Christchurch from Southland

in 2002 with his wife and three

children.

Boks bring excitement back

IS IT bad that I’ve enjoyed

watching the All Blacks be outplayed

me – the guy who says “nah,

Although looking for 70min

like they were going to do so, the

spectacle didn’t disappoint when

Scott Barrett and Ardie Savea

both pushed their way over the

Yes, it wasn’t pretty. But there’s

a different kind of satisfaction

watching the All Blacks battle,

and at times, struggle to stay

within catching distance of their

opposition.

I’m not saying I don’t enjoy

watching our boys smash the

Boks. But when we absolutely

rip them to shreds 57-0 like we

did in Albany last year, it doesn’t

Hyundai’s hot i30N –

Kiwis show the world how

quick we are behind the

wheel of competition cars.

We have many racers

who are making a name for

World Rally Championship

driver Hayden Paddon.

Paddon is one of those

Hyundai’s WRC

knows how to make it fly. I

simply can’t wait until the

next round of the WRC,

and will I be following with

Given the success

Hyundai have experienced

there is a road car spinoff.

it being i20-based the hot

hatchback is based on the

i30 and is labelled i30N,

the N representing the

development work done at

the legendary Nurburbring

race circuit in Germany

and Hyundai’s research

and development facility at

Namyang in South Korea.

The i30N competes

squarely with the likes of

Renault’s Clio RS, Ford’s

Focus RS and Subaru’s

WRX. However, it must be

mentioned that some of the

competition have fourwheel-drive,

the i30N is a

front-wheel-drive model

only.

That aside, the i30 is

a genuine performance

car, it has a turbocharged

2-litre engine which

drives through a six-speed

manual transmission and

electronically-controlled

limited slip differential.

The driveline is packaged

for entertainment, there is

202kW available at the top

end with the turbocharged

boost promoting a 353kW

torque figure available all

of the way from 1500rpm

to 4700rpm, with another

25Nm on overboost, if all

the ducks are lined up in a

row.

Hyundai claims a 6.1sec

standstill to 100km/h

acceleration time, along

with a 250km/h top speed.

I’m sure these figures are

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

HYUNDAI I30N: Turbocharged hot hatchback.

accessible, the engine is

a real honey in terms of

flexibility, it sings freely to

the redline, yet has a gentle

flow of power right through

the rev band, there’s never a

point of lag nor reluctance

to deliver. Yet, you can also

drive the i30N leisurely at

city speeds without drama,

it will pull from low revs,

and if you do get caught in

an inappropriate gear there

is enough torque on offer

to pull freely out of that

situation.

• Price – Hyundai

i30N, $54,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4335mm;

width, 1795mm;

height, 1447mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,

1998cc,

202kW, 353Nm,

six-speed manual.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.1sec

• Fuel usage –

8l/100km

However, the i30N is at

its best on a high country

burst. Sadly, there are too

few manual gearbox cars in

today’s market, so it is very

refreshing to have a drive

with a stick-shift. I took the

test car on a loop through

the fabulous Malvern Hills.

It is a delight in tight,

challenging corners, there

is a lot of electronic trickery

through the driveline,

which means power to the

wheels is given the best

chance of grip.

There is little push

through the steering,

understeer is moderated

and grip through all

corners is massive. That

is supplied in the first

instance by what I regard

as the world’s best rubber –

Pirelli PZero tyres (235/35

x 19in) – directional

accuracy is stunning and

steering feel is delightful.

Of course, the i30N

has adaptable handling

qualities, there are several

drive modes and a

customisation facility that

allows the driver to dial

in his or her personalised

chassis settings. I used

the standard sport mode

mostly and found its ride

and handling parameters

satisfactory for the majority

of road types and surfaces.

Hyundai have developed

what they label N-mode. In

that setting the i30N feels

constantly eager, the engine

lets the driver know there

is nothing normal under

the bonnet. There is a very

audible exhaust sound and

a deliberate bark on both

up and downshifts. It is a

manufactured sound but

it is truly delightful and is

true to the spirit of the hot

hatchback.

At $54,990, the i30N is

a bang-for-buck bargain,

there is a lot of car for

the money and its clever

design techniques mean

you can drive it any way

you like at any given

point. It is responsive but

also practical, the i30 in

traditional form is a car

which has a reputation for

quality family transport.

This evaluation focuses

mostly on the performance

aspects of the i30N. I make

no apology for that, it is a

car which thrills with its

feel and speed. The exhaust

sound makes you feel like

you are in the middle of

that WRC special stage, it is

infectious but it is part of a

package that will satisfy the

driver (and occupants) in

all driving situations.

It is most certainly the car

for me if finances allowed.

Sadly, they don’t, but I

will still have my Hyundai

fix for a while to come as

I’ll not only be following

Paddon’s career, no matter

what direction that might

take, but also Hyundai’s

future in the WRC.

Home

& Property

Dressing your

property up for sale

Your house is on the market and you hope to get a good price. While

market performance will largely influence this, presenting your home

at its best will help.

First impressions count from the

moment potential buyers view a

property from the street to the moment

they walk through the front door.

Weed the garden, cut back unruly

shrubs and prune trees where needed.

Kill off weeds in the lawn, sprinkle grass

seed over bald patches and fertilise the

lawn.

Indoors, tidy up. Get rid of excess

or bulky furniture, toys, books, hobby

items or fitness equipment and if too

many photos on the wall pack these

away so the home looks roomy.

If there is a gap or a room needs

enhancing, look at what you have. A

piece of furniture might be painted up

or an old leather bound book popped

on the coffee table. Shelves will also add

depth to a narrow space while mirrors

may give the illusion of a larger space. In

entryways, add an easy chair, small table,

bookcase or large vase.

Awkward spaces such as coved

ceilings in attics or upstairs rooms might

be converted into storage shelving and

the room given a purpose as an office,

playroom or extra bedroom so viewers

can see how the room might be used.

Stow possessions neatly in containers,

shelving or tidily in cupboards;

highlighting the storage potential within

the home, ensuring it is clean and tidy

for viewing at any time.

Move the pets outside as not all buyers

will be pet lovers while some may suffer

pet allergies putting them off a house if

they see a pet inside.

If parts of the house look tired,

consider renovating by painting walls,

replacing worn carpet, or modernising

the kitchen, bathroom and toilet;

rooms that should sparkle. Replace

tired cabinetry, or the benches and

cupboard/drawer fronts then update old

toilets, showers or kitchen appliances.

Modernising these rooms can lift the

final selling price.

Use consistent and light paint

colours throughout for balance and

seamlessness, making the house appear

more spacious. An effect that is increased

when walls and curtains share the same

or a similar colour.

Consider the personality and purpose

of a room. Bright colours lift living areas

especially if large and open. However,

bedrooms are suited to calmer softer

colours with just a touch of bold. Layer

bedding or use throws for effect along

with cushions or a stuffed toy in a

children’s room.

With curtaining, smaller patterns

or plain fabrics are the rule for smaller

rooms whereas larger patterns make

spacious areas cosier. If blinds or drapes

are past their best, replace these even if it

is only with neutral cotton curtains. The

effect will be worth it.

Eco-friendly features will also add

value for some buyers though not

universally, however earthy natural

colours and features are popular.

Consider who your target buyers are

likely to be and what will appeal to them.

PUBLIC NOTICE

Christchurch City Council is seeking feedback

on proposed high vehicular and pedestrian

thoroughfares and strategic routes in metropolitan

Christchurch. These thoroughfares and routes will

be used to prioritise the repair or demolition of

earthquake-prone buildings.

On 1 July 2017 changes were introduced to the

Building Act 2004 which affect the way earthquakeprone

buildings are identified and managed. One

of the changes provides for public consultation,

to assist Council to identify the most vulnerable

buildings - earthquake-prone buildings - on routes

with high vehicular or pedestrian traffic or of strategic

importance.

The Act defines these buildings as priority buildings,

and the timeframes for identifying and strengthening

or demolishing them are shortened. Once they have

been notified by Council, owners of priority buildings

have 7.5 years to strengthen or demolish them.

This is a significantly shorter timeframe than the

Act allows for other earthquake-prone buildings (15

years).

At its meeting on 27 September 2018, the

Christchurch City Council approved in principal the

areas identified by staff as high traffic areas and

strategic routes. Now we’re asking our community

about these routes and areas.

More detailed information about this proposal can be

found at www.ccc.govt.nz/haveyoursay or by ringing

Lori Rankin on 941-8355.

Submissions are open between Monday 15 October

2018 and Thursday 15 November 2018 and the

Council will make a decision March/April 2019.
