New central city route for Santa Parade

• By Julia Evans

THE 72ND Christchurch Santa

Parade has a completely new

The parade is moving back to

Asaph and Kilmore Sts.

The 1.2km route will start

PLUCKY CANCER sufferer

Megan Hore has had the best

news of her life.

The 18-year-old daughter

of well-known blind organist

Richard Hore is in remission

after battling bone cancer for the

last year.

Test results, which came back

late on Wednesday, gave her the

all clear for now.

“It’s the best news. It feels good

like a weight just went off my

shoulders,” Megan said.

She will be back in hospital

every three months for the next

five years to test for cancer cells.

If cancer is found, her diagnosis

will become terminal.

The Star has been following

her progress and help her

fundraising efforts to get to

Disneyland Paris, which is part

of her bucket list to go to all the

Disney parks around the world.

Megan said before she went in

to get the test results she was a

bundle of nerves.

“Most of me thought it was

terminal, but there was a small

part of me thought it would be

good news.”

So when the results came back

without traces of cancer, she said

she had to celebrate.

“I treated myself to a shopping

spree online,” she said. The

family also went to Lyttelton to

have a Glamour Cakes donut

and Megan has been hanging out

with her friends.

But she said she’s still getting used

to not being in hospital any more.

There’s no real normal for me

any more. We’ve been through

something that changed the normal

so I’m getting used to a new

normal,” Megan said.

“I get to tell myself, I don’t

have cancer.”

Her mother Marilyn said the

family took a collective sigh of

relief.

“It’s quite exciting, we can

be normal for the next three

months,” she said.

Rescuers come too late

• By Sophie Cornish

A FORMER Christchurch man

perished in the Italian mountains

while waiting for help to arrive

after he fell into a steep gully.

Dennis Connor, 57, an ultramarathon

runner, suffered arm

and leg injuries when he fell

while running in the Apennine

Mountains.

He managed to contact

authorities to rescue him.

He gave them co-ordinates

as to where he was. But the coordinates

were incorrect, Italian

newspaper La Nazione reported.

The fall happened on September

30.

That night a strong

thunderstorm hit the mountains,

causing temperatures to plummet.

Mr Connor’s body was found

three days later.

His mother, Helen Connor,

who lives in Christchurch, told

The Star this week that his body

was found on a ledge.

“He was out running and

obviously fell and was missing.

They finally found him . . . he was

there for about three days before

they managed to get him off, but

by that time he had died. We don’t

know any more than that. He

must have been badly injured.”

TRAGEDY: Dennis Connor’s body was recovered in the

Italian mountains after he fell while he was out running.

He contacted authorities to rescue him. But they were

unable to find him in time.

Mr Connor was based in San

Jose, California, where he worked

as the director of engineering at

auto steering technology firm,

Novariant.

He had gone to Italy on a sixweek

work trip.

The accident happened above

Comano, Tuscany.

Mr Connor left his hotel,

Miramonti, on the morning of

September 30.

La Nazione reported Mr

Connor was warned by

the hotel owner and chef

Umberton Ferrari to be careful,

as the mountains were very

dangerous.

“I advised him to drive to the

Lagastrello Pass, but he decided

to leave on foot from Comano.

Then the ascent into the

mountains went in the worst way

imaginable,” said Mr Ferrari.

Later that day, Mr Connor

fell into a gorge and suffered a

fractured arm and bruises to one

leg, La Nazione reported.

His body was found by a

search party in the Groppi di

Camporaghena area.

The search party consisted of

Italian police, military, navy,

Comano locals, drones and a

mountain rescue team.

His mother described the

death as “dreadful.”

“He did that (running) in all

his spare time. He belonged to a

club in California. He did a lot of

races, not that he was in it to win,

but just to do the distance

. . . he was so pleased he was

going to be able to run in Italy, in

lots of different places where he

had never been.”

Mr Connor had previously run

distances between 50km and

100km.

Earlier this year he

completed an 80km ultramarathon

at Antelope Canyon in

Arizona.

In December, he ran 50km at

the Rodeo Beach Trail Run.

La Nazione reported Mr

Connor wanted to reach the

summit of Alpe di Succiso, one of

the seven peaks in the northern

Appennine Mountains, with a

height of 2017m.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Personalities, politics divide community boards

• By Julia Evans

PERSONALITY clashes and

differing political views are

dividing community boards

around the city.

The latest causality in widespread

local government friction

is Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board deputy

chairman Aaron Campbell who

is set to be sacked by his board.

A notice of motion, which has

been accepted by city council

chief executive Karleen Edwards,

was filed last Thursday to remove

him as deputy chairman at the

board’s October 29 meeting.

He will remain as a board

member for the rest of term but

remains undecided if he will run

again.

The move comes after Mr

Campbell questioned the city

council’s membership of Water

New Zealand.

He questioned it during a

board area report to city councillors.

Mr Campbell and board

chairman Sam MacDonald met

with board governance manager

Matt McLintock the next day.

Mr Campbell was told it was not

the right place to raise the issue

without authority.

Mr Campbell disagreed.

The notice was signed by all

board members including the

three city councillors Aaron

Keown, Raf Manji and Jamie

Gough.

“I’m disgusted and disappointed,”

Mr Campbell said.

He said he feels let down by the

whole board and should have had

the chance to discuss personality

issues.

Mr MacDonald said he would

not comment on the matter until

after the meeting.

It comes as there is wider turmoil

on boards around the city.

There have been clashes

over the Denton Park decision

between Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board members,

which required intervention

from an independent facilitator.

Dr Edwards and Mayor Lianne

Dalziel also attended one of the

board’s meetings to discuss the

Karleen

Edwards

Mora

Jones

decision-making process and

relationships.

There was also a failed attempt

to oust chairman Mike Mora

and deputy chairwoman Helen

Broughton last year.

More recently there has been

friction between Papanui-Innes

Community Board chairwoman

Ali Jones and member John

Stringer around the decisionmaking

process for a bus lane

on Main North Rd. An indepdendent

facilitator was also used.

Ms Dalziel could not answer

questions from The Star yesterday

as she was in meetings.

Mr Campbell said the move

is political censorship, an attack

on free speech and pre- election

manoeuvring before local body

elections next October.

Mr MacDonald and Mr

Campbell have different political

leanings – Mr MacDonald

is electorate chairman for Ilam

National MP Gerry Brownlee

and Mr Campbell was campaign

secretary for Mayor Lianne

Dalziel and Christchurch Central

Labour MP Duncan Webb.

Mr MacDonald also ran for

the board under the right-l

eaning Independent Citizens

group.

While Mr Campbell is one of

three members on the board who

are not aligned with Independent

Citizens – the others being Cr

Manji and Cr Keown – who all

ran as independents.

Sam

MacDonald

John

Stringer

Lianne

Dalziel

Helen

“Central Government

aligning should not come in

at a local level,” Mr Campbell

said.

But Mr MacDonald said that is

not the case.

“For anyone to insinuate

that this is political and not

purely for the outcomes of our

community is quite frankly offensive.”

The pair also butted heads on

Mr Campbell’s call to introduce

a liquor ban in Elmwood Park,

which Mr MacDonald said was

not supported by the majority of

the board.

Woman unhurt

after car plunges

100m down hill

• By Matt Salmons

A WOMAN walked away

uninjured after the car she was

driving rolled 100m down a Banks

Peninsula hillside.

On Friday afternoon, the 72-yearold,

who did not wish to speak

to The Star, was driving towards

Akaroa from Christchurch when

the car left the road on a bend

between the Hilltop Tavern and

Barrys Bay on State Highway 75.

The Volvo XC60 rolled several

times, before stopping on a plateau.

Akaroa Senior Constable

Tim Johnson said there was no

indication that speed or erratic

driving was involved in the

incident.

He said the woman’s car had

crashed through 40m of bush

before reaching open ground.

“It was lucky there was that

plateau, otherwise, she would have

kept going until she reached the

bottom . . . another 100m.”

When he arrived at the scene a

member of the public was sitting

with the woman.

“She was shaken and cold. But

otherwise, no injuries.”

She was taken to Christchurch

Hospital for observation.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Quarry group make-up under fire

• By Anan Zaki

RESIDENTS LIVING near a

proposed Fulton Hogan quarry

are now questioning the

make-up of the company’s

community advisory group.

Inquiries by The Star have

revealed one member of the

advisory group lives 3km from

the proposed 170ha quarry site,

bordering Curraghs, Dawsons,

Jones and Maddisons Rds.

Curraghs Rd resident Simon

Moore, who lives 600m from the

quarry site, slammed the inclusion

of the member.

“What a farce. How can that

person be affected at all?” Mr

Moore said.

Ian Walsh, lives 3km southeast

of the proposed quarry site

and is one of the seven members

in the advisory group. He refused

to talk to The Star.

Fulton Hogan said immediate

neighbours are part of the

advisory group. But Fulton

Hogan refused to disclose who

and what organisations are on

the advisory group or comment

on whether they regarded Mr

Walsh as an immediate neighbour.

The Star is aware the Weedons

Residents’ Association is part of

the group.

The company did not invite all

immediate neighbours to be part

of the group.

Mr Moore said his neighbours

who are immediate neighbours

have not heard of the advisory

group.

Said Fulton Hogan South

Island manager Craig Stewart:

The group’s composition came

about from neighbours and local

residents’ inquiries and conversations

with Fulton Hogan about

our proposed quarry.”

Mr Stewart said discussion

with the advisory group is part

of the company’s “on-going process

of engagement and development”

of the resource consent

application.

Mr Moore said it was concerning

that the advisory group’s

consultation could be used in

preparing the company’s resource

consent application.

“If somebody is 3km away,

who can’t even see it or hear the

damn thing, how on earth can

they have any constructive input

into it at all?” he said.

“It’s so farcical, that it’s unbelievable.”

Mr Moore challenged more

members of the advisory group

to come forward and make

themselves known to Templeton

and Weedons locals.

The Weedons Residents’ Association

is part of the group.

Association secretary Gary

Doyle said the meetings did not

provide new detail about the

quarry.

The Templeton Residents’

Association refused to be part of

the group, saying Fulton Hogan

should speak to all residents, not

a select group.

Fulton Hogan expect to

submit their resource consent

application next month.

New way to deal with

midge problem

A new way of controlling

the midge population at the

Bromley oxidation ponds by

mechanically dragging chains

across the pond floor where

the midge lay their larvae will

be trialled over the coming

months. The chains will be

dragged by a boat at a steady

walking pace every 10 days for

five hours. The method been

used at the Mangere oxidation

ponds in south Auckland,

which has also historically

been plagued by midge

problems.

History of Halswell

on show

The history of Halswell dating

back to 1850 will be on show

this weekend. More than 1000

photos of the area have been

complied together by former

Halswell Quarry Park ranger

John Moore. The majority of

the collection was passed down

from late photographer Lyal

Cup and Show Week countdown:

Christchurch is only

weeks away from the

biggest event on the

social calendar, New

Zealand Cup and

Show Week. Reporter

Sophie Cornish looks

at what is trending

this spring and where

to get it . . .

THE NERVE-RACKING hunt

for the perfect dress has already

begun.

Eye-popping bold shades,

headbands, and men rocking

the no-sock look may feature at

the raceway this Cup and Show

Week from November 10 to 17.

Ballantynes fashion stylist

Josie Pasame said the hunt for

the perfect race-day attire has

already begun.

The typical bold colours and

florals are emerging this spring,

she said, however, women are

tending to lean towards hats and

headbands, over fascinators.

“Hats are big, you will be seeing

a lot of hats. Think back to Julia

Roberts in Pretty Woman, when

she went to the polo match.”

For men, it is about just

“going for gold” when finding

the right attire, said Miss

Pasame.

“It’s about knowing your

proportions. A tailored suit is a

must.”

Miss Pasame wants men not

to shy away from bold colours,

using bow ties, ties and pocketsquares

as statement pieces to

go along with a simple suit and

crisp white shirt.

One message Miss Pasame

wanted to make clear for the

men – no fedoras!

Opt for a straw hat instead.

STYLE ICONS: (Left) –

Ballantynes fashion stylist

Josie Pasame says eyepopping

bold shades are

in for this year’s Cup and

Show Week. A tailored suit

such as junior menswear

buyer Jack O’Halloran is

wearing is a must. Hats like

the one Julia Roberts wore

in Pretty Woman (above)

will also be popular.

Some younger men are making

their own rules says Miss

Pasame.

“Not necessarily wearing socks

and rolling up their hems. I’m

not against this, it’s just a new

modern twist. They are ditching

the tie as well . . . no sock is okay,

just make sure you wear a little

sockette.”

What you should wear

JACQUI FORDE’S designer

rental business allows her to

keep up with new and exciting

trends as they appear.

After two-and-a-half years

running Designer Affair, Ms

Forde is seeing a “funky” shift

from the popularity of dresses

to two piece sets and pant-suits.

“This new trend is definitely

something we are aware of,

whether it’s two-piece sets of

pants and tops or skirts and

tops . . . it’s quite cool, I think

it’s pretty funky that girls are

going back to wearing pants.

They are more functional and

comfortable. It gives them

the opportunity to mix and

match.”

Ms Forde’s wardrobe is

bursting with 130 dresses

which she rents out to people

for a fraction of their retail

value.

This rental method has

proved to be popular in the

past with race-goers, as the

costs of tickets, food, alcohol

and the rest of their wardrobe

add up.

Traffic light

phasing to

MOTORISTS frustrated waiting

at red lights in the central city may

not be stopped pointlessly for much

longer.

Options to improve the lights on

Tuam and St Asaph Sts are being

assessed by city council staff after

frustration and congestion issues

were raised.

Left turning lights on the street

stay red as a green light is on for the

cycle lanes. However, the lights stay

red even when there are no cyclists

waiting to turn.

City councillor and infrastructure,

transport and environment

committee member Mike Davidson

said the lights are creating frustration

and congestion problems.

“At the moment the phasing for

the lights is not working, you’re

waiting at a red light whether a

cyclist is there or not.”

Cr Davidson said it was creating

unnecessary conflict between

cyclists and motorists.

An option mooted included

making the left turning lights flash

orange.

After staff investigate the issue,

he said the city council would approach

the New Zealand Transport

Agency.

One of the city’s most iconic bars will be celebrating 40

years of pouring pints in Christchurch. Julia Evans reports

on the past, present and future of the Dux de Lux

WHETHER IT be for a

sunny Sunday afternoon

session in the outdoor

courtyard, a boozy

Saturday night listening to

a local band or a few quiet

Ginger Toms during a

Monday night comedy gig.

The tudor-style building

on the corner of the Arts

Centre was the city’s place

to be for the better part of

30 years.

But in 2011 when the

ground shook, the building’s

1883 earthquake

standards were no match

for the 6.3 magnitude

tremor.

Richard Sinke’s iconic

Dux de Lux has not had a

pint poured in its four walls

since.

But in spite of the great

sense of loss, Mr Sinke is in

celebration mode.

The Dux is having a

birthday – 40 years in

Christchurch.

On Tuesday, a party for

all past and present staff is

on the cards.

“It will be great seeing

all those old faces again.

I’ve been thinking about it

and there must have been

thousands of people who

have worked at the Dux,”

Mr Sinke said.

Then from Thursday to

Sunday, the Dux Central

will be hosting a number of

bands, in a nod to its musical

history.

“Because Dux has been

part of the music scene for

such a long time, there will

be a number of bands playing

at central,” he said.

Mr Sinke said the upcoming

party was also a

time to be a bit nostalgic.

Mr Sinke’s association

with the Dux de Lux

building – he calls it

the Mothership – began

right back when he was

a Canterbury University

student.

“It used to be the student

union building, I remember

hanging out there, not

knowing how important it

would be.”

But before the Dux concept

was born, Mr Sinke

had other ideas about how

he was going to get into the

world of hospitality.

“I wrote to my father

when I was in Thailand

telling him I was going to

come home and open a

Thai restaurant. This was

before there were any Thai

places in Christchurch.

But I just knew I wanted

to get into the business

somehow.”

He said the Dux was born

out of being young and

idealistic – but it worked.

For the last four decades,

the Dux has been ahead of

the game.

Not only was it one of

the first vegetarian-only

restaurants in the country,

it also opened one of the

first craft breweries in

1989 – brewing Dux Lager,

Ginger Tom, Blue Duck

Amber Lager, Hereford

Bitter, Nor’Wester Ale and

Black Shag Stout.

“We were early on promoting

a lot of New Zealand

music too, especially

local stuff,” he said.

“It took so many years to

build it up. There were tough

times, down cycles of businesses

and banks knocking

on the door, but I think what

we had was integrity.”

In 1997 Mr Sinke said

people finally “got it” and

business really took off.

CASINO’S

HISTORY: The band ART, made up of Rhys Williams, Kat Zolita Mason and Geoff Snowsill

performing at the Dux de Lux in the 1990s.

bands and vege food

“We were producing great beers,

good music and food.”

He said his favourite memory

was one New Year’s Eve when

Dave Dobbyn packed out the Dux

de Lux.

There were 5000 people in that

big courtyard, plus the market

square in the Arts Centre listening

to Dave Dobbyn and the Mutton

Birds. It was a great night.”

Mr Sinke said the business was

in full swing until the “horrific”

ordeal of the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

“I was in town having a birthday

lunch with my mum . . . we went

down there straight away.”

But he said from the moment he

walked in, he knew the building

would not be opening again.

“I walked out of there with a

brand and an insurance policy and

that was it,” Mr Sinke said.

That brand has given the Dux

the upper hand in the emerging

post-quake hospitality industry

and the first “duxling” Dux Live,

a live music venue, opened on

Lincoln Rd in late 2011.

It was awarded the best music

and entertainment venue in 2014

TIME LINE

The Montreal and

Hereford St Arts Centre

building, originally

called Llanmaes, was

constructed in 1883.

•In 1926 it was purchased

by Canterbury University

and used as the house for

the rector Charles Chilton.

•From 1929 it became the

home of the University

of Canterbury Student

Association.

•Dux de Lux opened in

1978.

•It was forced to close

after sustaining significant

damage in the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

LOST: After the earthquake,

the Dux de Lux was closed.

and 2015 by Hospitality New

Zealand before closing in 2016

as other venues flooded the

market.

The second duxling was the

seafood and vegetarian restaurant

Dux Dine, which opened in

November 2012 on Riccarton

Rd at the former Riccarton

stationmasters’ house.

Then in 2015, the flagship bar

and restaurant Dux Central

opened – including the Brew Bar,

a function space and courtyard,

Emerald Room Wine and Spirit

Bar and The Poplar Social Club

cocktail bar.

Meat was added to the menu for

the first time in Dux history.

Mr Sinke said the business has

come full circle since its early days

from a vegetarian restaurant.

The most recent addition to

the Dux saga is the aptly named

Terrace Tavern, on the central

city’s The Terrace.

But while the future is bright

for the Dux family – its former

building in the Arts Centre

is still waiting for earthquake

repairs after being saved from the

bulldozer.

Arts Centre chief executive

Philip Aldridge said there are still

no plans for its rebuild.

The Arts Centre, Te Matatiki

Toi Ora, has not yet made

plans for its earthquakedamaged

student union building,

which once housed the Dux de

Lux.”

But Mr Sinke is more optimistic,

suggesting the Mothership could

return if and when the building is

repaired.

“I’d love to have some dialogue

with them when the time is right,”

Mr Sinke said.

“I think it would be good for

Christchurch. We’ve lost so much.”

LOOKING BACK: Mr Sinke said he feels nostalgic for the old

Dux de Lux.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Novel way for

kids to critique

healthcare

CHILDREN MAY soon be able

to rate their hospital experiences

with the help of an animated

character, Fabio the frog.

Fabio and his friends feature

in an interactive programme

on a tablet, given to children in

Christchurch Hospital, as part of

a three-month pilot.

Funding for the pilot was

provided by the South Island

Alliance, which is interested at

looking into the issue.

Historically, children’s accounts

of their healthcare experiences

have been obtained through

proxy, via a parent or guardian

overseeing their care.

The trial, which began on September

24, involves two children’s

wards at the hospital and was

aimed at children age six and older.

The information provided

anonymously from this system

will give us useful information

from children’s and parent’s

perspectives, that will be used

to develop and monitor service

improvements.

The Child Health Advisory

Council and Youth Advisory

Council supported the development

of questions to ask the

houses, where

previously

it had been

almost impossible.

But he said this issue could

just be the tip of the iceberg and

wanted to keep looking into it.

“We had a very rushed District

Plan process, even though it was

developed with good intentions,”

he said.

“I think we should be looking

at what are the issues with

the plan and how we can be

addressing them in the short to

medium term.”

Cr East and Coastal-Burwood

Community Board chairwoman

Kim Money, deputy chairman

Tim Sintes and Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board member Darrell Latham

are facing code of conduct

complaints.

A resolution has still not been

found.

“However, the organisation

has been focusing on fixing

the problem,” a city council

spokeswoman said.

On Monday, city councillors

approved a draft proposal to

amend the District Plan in

relation to the Residential Unit

Overlay.

Cr East said he was “pleased”

things were finally moving

forward.

The city council is set to

ask Minister for Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Megan Woods to change the

District Plan using her powers

under section 71 of the Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Act.

The proposal clarifies the

policy needed to support the

Residential Unit Overlay area

where the risk of flooding is

predominantly from future sea

level rise and permits people

with vacant sites to rebuild

houses without the need for a

resource consent.

The draft proposal is now

with Environment Canterbury,

the Selwyn and Waimakariri

district councils, Te Rūnanga o

Ngai Tahu, the Department of

the Prime Minister and Cabinet

and Regenerate Christchurch for

feedback.

Feedback is expected back

next week.

City council staff will then

have to report back to city

councillors on November 1,

seeking approval for the final

proposal to be sent to Dr Woods.

The final proposal would go to

Dr Woods in early November.

She will invite public

comments before making her

decision on whether to accept or

decline the proposal, and make

the proposed changes to the

District Plan.

Chinese Consulate General in Christchurch

Held Reception Marking the 69th

Anniversary of the Founding of People’s

Republic of China and 40th anniversary of

China’s Reform and Opening-up

On September 26, the Chinese Consulate General in

Christchurch held the reception marking celebrate

the 69th anniversary of the founding of the People’s

Republic of China and the 40th anniversary of

China’s reform and opening-up. Around 200 guests

including Mayor Lianne Dalziel of Christchurch and

a number of South Island mayors, local dignitaries,

representatives of Chinese communities, Chinese

enterprises, students and friends from all circles

attended.

Consul General Wang in his speech noted that

China has made remarkable achievements in its

construction and development since the founding

of new China 69 years ago, especially over the 40

years of reform and opening-up, adding a glorious

chapter to the national epic. Chinese nation will

prevail over whatever difficulties to carry forward

the reform to its ultimate triumph. He stressed 40

years of experience has proven that growth and

prosperity could only be achieved through opening

up to the world. The address of President Xi at this

year’s Boao Forum for Asia sent out a clear signal for

further opening up of China, and China will host the

first International Import Exhibition in Shanghai in

November, providing a new platform for exploring

the vast Chinese market.

Consul General Wang emphasized that the Belt

and Road Initiative (BRI) proposed by China

has broadened prospects for China’s win-win

cooperation with the rest of the world. BRI has been

turned from vision into reality through concrete

actions since its launch five years ago. China will

continue to share opportunities for common growth

with the rest of the world so as to create a more

peaceful and prosperous future for all.

Consul General Wang spoke positively of the good

momentum of China-New Zealand bilateral relations.

He noted that the two countries have maintained

regular high level exchanges, with important

consensus reached on further strengthening

Comprehensive Strategic Partnership and exchanges

and cooperation in various areas further promoted.

China and New Zealand face vast opportunities in

synergizing development strategies and building

the Belt and Road. Boosted by the development of

bilateral relations, the local-level exchanges between

China and South Island have also strengthened with

practical cooperation upgraded, bringing tangible

benefits for both peoples. The enhanced bilateral

Antarctic cooperation will also provide important

impetus to implementing the Antarctica Gateway

Strategy of Christchurch. Next year will be the

China-New Zealand Tourism Year, and with South

Island becoming one of top overseas destinations of

Chinese tourists, both sides are expected to take the

opportunity of the tourism year to uplift bilateral

tourism cooperation to a new level.

Mayor Dalziel in her speech expressed

congratulations on behalf of South Island mayors,

and expressed appreciation for the achievements

by Consul General Wang in the past year since

his assumption of office.

She pointed out that

South Island districts are

deepening cooperation

with provinces and cities in

China in areas of economic

and trade, tourism and

education through

platforms like friendly

cities, and take pride in

the outcomes of the joint

efforts by people in relevant

circles on both sides. As

gateway to South Island,

Christchurch has witnessed

the remarkable progress

in bilateral cooperation

This advertorial page is supported by The Chinese Consulate

and exchanges,

and will coordinate

with South Island

cities and districts

to hold a series of

activities including

the Lantern Festival

together with China

next year to provide

a boost to the New

Zealand-China

Tourism Year.

Christchurch-based

MP Dr. Duncan

Webb addressed on

behalf of the Labour Party. He spoke highly of the

significance and achievements of China’s reform

and opening-up, and highlighted the importance

New Zealand attaches to its relations with China.

He pointed out that, despite the differences in size,

geographical distance and cultural traditions, both

countries are able to see each other’s development

and success as opportunities and give play to

respective complementary strengths so as to

enhance friendly cooperation. He looked forward

to both countries working together to create more

“firsts” in the bilateral relationship.

In a festive and friendly atmosphere, the guests sang

high praise for China’s achievements in the reform

and opening-up and important contributions to

world peace and development, expressing their

expectation for and confidence in the prospects for

future development of bilateral relations. The guests

were also attracted by the photo display at the venue

to mark the 5th anniversary of launching BRI.

Opinion

Wake-up call over water

DRINKING water has

been back in the headlines

this week, with the release

of the independent review

of how the city council

not only lost its secure

status, (which led to the

temporary chlorination

decision) but also why this

happened with absolutely

no warning.

Understanding how we

got to this situation, will

help us chart our way back

to staying chlorine-free in

the future, but it is disappointing

that we were not

alerted much sooner to the

risk that our secure status

was under threat. What

the report says was missing

was a robust, integrated

risk management approach

that kept everyone in the

loop.

The report also highlighted

the importance of

having a cohesive system

to manage, monitor and

report compliance with all

criteria, including managing

providers, and sharing

information across providers

and internally.

It’s a real wake-up call.

Essentially the report

confirms that along with

the chief executive and

her most senior managers,

elected members were completely

in the dark when the

clock started ticking. That’s

not good enough.

The report goes on to

say that this failure to

report up would not have

prevented the decision to

chlorinate.

However, if we had been

aware of the risk and the

consequences right at the

start, the water supply

improvement programme

could have been established

straight away, and

a fully integrated plan of

attack could have been

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

developed, before we were

even faced with the loss

of secure status and the

chlorination decision.

And as a community,

you would have been fully

aware of what was happening,

and not caught by

surprise.

We have already learned

from this experience and

remain absolutely committed

to getting the chlorine

out of our pristine drinking

water supply.

This report tells us if we

get that right, we can keep

it that way.

Fire rages, homes at risk

City cycling in good health

WORKING UP A THIRST: Ben Walker, 9, of Strowan, blends

his own smoothie with pedal-power at the recent NZ Bike

Expo.

IF YOU SIT at the bottom of

Rapaki Track on the Port Hills

after work or in the weekend, you

could be excused for thinking

that every Christchurch resident

rides a mountain bike.

That’s how Glen McGeachen,

president of the Canterbury

Mountain Bike Club, described

the popularity of off-road cycling

in the city.

“If the cycling conversation

in Christchurch only focuses on

commuting to work or school, it

disregards a significant number

of people who bike for fun,” said

Mr McGeachen.

The Canterbury Mountain

Bike Club is a not-for-profit

social group formed in 1988 to

motivate members to improve

their fitness and riding ability.

Alongside their regular club

rides and weekend adventures, it

has staged a number of off-road

rides for the public as part of the

Biketober cycling festival.

“It can be a bit daunting

advancing from the undulating

trails of Bottle Lake Forest Park

or McLeans Forest to a Port Hills

track,” Mr McGeachen explained,

“but for individuals and families

who want to mountain bike, our

club is here to support them.”

Rod Hibberd agrees that

mountain biking is thriving in

Christchurch. As race director of

Blue Dog Events, Mr Hibberd is

the organiser of the Hunter Civil

10-hour day/nighter and the

6-hour blast at McLeans Forest

on October 27.

“We will have nearly 1600

riders of all abilities racing

against the clock to complete as

many 11km laps as they can in

the set time frame,” he said.

Either competing in teams

of two-five, or challenging

themselves by racing solo,

competitors navigate a freeflowing,

smooth track, winding

through the forest and along

river stop banks.

“Workplaces enter a team or

two, or a couple of mates give it a

go,” Mr Hibberd said.

“You’ll have a team who

decorate their bikes and wear

Spectators are welcome to

cheer on the racers.

Christchurch does host

other styles of cycling which

are equally enjoyed, reminds

Biketober co-ordinator Robert

Fleming.

“When we also consider

BMX, track cycling, road

cycling, touring, unicycling

– have I missed any? – there

are a tremendous number of

Cantabrians who regularly

hop on a bike, for fitness, fun,

and convenience,” Mr Fleming

said.

The Biketober programme has

almost reached 100 individual

events for the month. A sure sign

that cycling in Christchurch is in

good health.

Thanks for

the support

It’s been a week of mixed emotions for the team here at

Ravensdown.

Disappointed a fire occurred last Tuesday. Thankful nobody was

hurt. Grateful to the Fire Service.

Proud of the team for bouncing back. Committed to rebuild,

listen and improve.

We are sorry and apologise to the residents of our wonderful

city for the inconvenience and concern the fire caused.

Our Hornby site has been part of the Christchurch community

for nearly 100 years. We take our role and responsibilities

seriously and front up when things go wrong. This experience

has made us more determined than ever to do the region proud.

We’ll be looking closely at the causes of the fire. At the moment,

we believe a rubber conveyor belt caused it to spread to

fibreglass roofs of four of our 13 buildings. This resulted in the

extensive black smoke that could be seen for some distance.

The fire involved building materials only - no fertiliser was

combusting. In fact, we don’t store nitrate or other

“explosive-risk” fertilisers at any of our manufacturing plants.

The team here pulled out all the stops and within 48 hours; we

were again open for business. Food-creating nutrients were able

to be picked up by farmers for the busy spring season.

If you want to learn more about what we do in Hornby and why

we do it, one of the best ways is to follow us on Facebook.

Thanks to all those who helped – particularly the Fire and

Emergency Services who were outstanding – and to all those

who showed their support. Canterbury people are known for

their resilience and there was plenty of this on display

throughout the week.

If you have any questions, feel free to call us on 0800 100 123

or drop us a line on Facebook.

Kind regards

HOLIDAYS/COMMUNITY EVENT

GET READY!

BOWLS3FIVE IS

COMING!

Get ready, Bowls3Five is coming

to SKY Sport – and with a short

fast format, it’s going to challenge

the perception of lawn bowls

and arguably become the most

innovative change to the sport yet.

Bowls New Zealand are primed and

ready to launch the fast format of

lawn bowls this coming summer.

Bowls3Five aims to showcase the

diversity and personality of the

sport of lawn bowls by featuring the

best ‘club bowlers’ in a high-profile

televised sports league.

Bowls3Five will see six club teams

from throughout New Zealand

selected to compete in a live to air

competition on SKY Sport every

Tuesday and Wednesday 7pm-

10pm.

For six weeks from October 23 –

November 28, the competition

will promote New Zealanders

playing sport for the challenge, the

entertainment and that taste of

victory.

Games will last no more than 55

minutes, with teams comprising

three players (minimum one male

or female) who each play two bowls

per end. The game is made up of

two five-end sets. In the event the

sets are tied, a one end tie-breaker

will be the decider.

Adding to the thrill of the short

format of the game, a Power Play

will be available to each side once

per game with double points for

the nominated Power Play end.

Astute followers of the format know

this is where games can be won

or lost depending on the strategy

deployed. A 30-second shot clock

keeps the action fast paced as it

applies pressure to every delivery.

The inaugural Bowls3Five round

robin competition will be played at

the new covered facility at the New

Lynn Bowling Club in Auckland.

Teams play each other twice in the

first five weeks of competition, with

the sixth and final week scheduled

for the post-section and Finals

action.

DESIGN Denise Crawford

We want to make the holidays special.

Nothing wrong with that. But that often means

a lot of events get added to the schedule. While

they are fun, they can add to the stress level.

The last quarter of the year can be a

stressful time for many people. In addition

to money, other sources of stress might be:

feeling overwhelmed and overbooked, family

conflict, and feeling sad when everybody else

is cheerful. Not everyone is happy during the

holidays.

What can we do now to

prepare?

How can we get a head start on preparation

for the holidays and make the season less

stressful? I came up with ten things we can

do to prepare now, including some ideas I

collected from online sources and from the

TPW community.

1. Plan ahead.

Sit down with a cup of something and a

notebook or your computer and your calendar

and do a mind dump of all the things you

usually do or need or want to do during

the holidays, starting from mid-October

through the New Year’s celebrations. Include

it all: family traditions, church or work or

community events you need or want to

participate in, people you want to give gifts

to, food or gifts you want to make, meals you

want to serve, parties you plan to host or

attend, etc.

2. Develop a budget for

the holidays.

Think about how much money you’re

willing to set aside

for each person you

want to give a gift

to. Having a budget

written down now might

help you resist the urge to

overspend as the holidays get

closer.

If the budget is an issue, take steps now

to avoid uncomfortable situations during

the holidays. Talk to extended family about

skipping gifts, or giving gifts only to the

children, or drawing names and setting a cap

on the amount (so nobody feels embarrassed

because somebody else gave a more

extravagant gift).

3. Shop ahead.

The steps above will help make it easier

for you to get your holiday shopping sooner

rather than later. If you have the list of people

you want to give gifts to and then brainstorm

ideas for gifts for each, you’ll have it top-ofmind

when you’re out and can be watching for

those perfect gifts and watch for sales on the

things you want to give.

4. Start decluttering.

Cluttered space contributes to anxiety and

to a lack of focus. On the other hand, a clean,

clutter-free space helps lead to a more relaxed

and peaceful frame of mind.

In addition to the pleasure that comes from

having a peaceful, decluttered home, getting

rid of the “extra” stuff will also make space

for the new stuff that invariably comes at the

holidays.

THE HOLIDAYS

are fast

approching

5. Cook/

bake

ahead.

If you think about holiday

meals ahead of time, are

there any dishes or treats you

traditionally serve that can be made

ahead and frozen? Or things you can have in

the freezer and pull out to take to a party or

serve unexpected guests?

6. Plan some fun events

for yourself and your

family.

Now might be a great time to start

investigating the options for memory-making

family activities during the holiday season.

What does your community offer? What

special sights are available near where you live?

7. Get a jump on your

holiday cards or letter.

Take a family photo now; assemble/update

addresses and begin addressing cards.

8. Make it meaningful.

Be intentional about keeping your priorities

in mind and think about what’s important to

you and your family.

One secret to a joyful, lower-stress holiday

season might be giving a little thought now so

we can plan to manage expectations. If there

is something we’ve always historically done,

but we decide not to do it, we can start to let

others know we are going to do things a little

differently. It’s better to talk about it now than

to drop a bomb and not meet expectations.

VITAMINS MAY

help smokers

quit

REMEMBERING

OUR

COURAGEOUS

COMMUNITIES

Christchurch City Council,

partners and community

event providers bring you the

annual Beca Heritage Week

festival returning from 12 to

22 October. Check out the

many interesting events in

this year’s programme.

UC Psychology doctoral student Phillipa Reihana’s research shows a nutritional supplement may help smokers quit. Photo credit: University of

Canterbury (copyright remains with the University of Canterbury)

New research by University of Canterbury

(UC) psychologists shows that minerals and

vitamins help to reduce cigarette consumption

and promote successful quitting.

This study is the first known randomised

controlled trial investigating the impact

of a mineral-vitamin formula for smoking

cessation and reduction of cigarette use.

This study by UC Psychology doctoral

student Phillipa Reihana, Professor Neville

Blampied, and Professor Julia Rucklidge, of

UC Psychology in the College of Science,

published recently in the journal Nicotine

& Tobacco Research, supports the use of

micronutrients (minerals and vitamins) as

a safe, readily available option to promote

successful quitting and reduced cigarette use.

The UC researchers believe that

micronutrients are comparable to other

smoking cessation treatments (e.g., drugs of

various kinds) but with fewer side effects, with

28% of the micronutrient group achieving

abstinence for 12 weeks versus 18% of the

placebo group.

“Micronutrients are being increasingly studied

for the treatment of psychiatric conditions, but

directly using micronutrients as a treatment

for addictions is novel,” Mrs Reihana says.

There is extensive evidence that

micronutrients alleviate stress. Given that

tobacco smoking is often used to cope with

stress, taking micronutrients may moderate

the stress of withdrawal and increase the

chance of a successful quit attempt.”

Furthermore, those taking micronutrients

reported reduced consumption of cigarettes

per day, notably in the four weeks prior to

quitting (when participants attempted to cut

down) and at four weeks after their quit date.

The researchers conclude that the study

supports the use of micronutrients as a safe,

readily available option to take before and

during a quit attempt to potentially increase

the likelihood of success.

“This and future research in this field may

support Aotearoa New Zealand to reach the

goal that fewer than 5% of New Zealanders

will be smokers by 2025,” Mrs Reihana says.

This study is the first known randomised

controlled trial investigating the impact

of a mineral-vitamin formula for smoking

cessation and reduction of cigarette use

anywhere in the world. Importantly, there was

a placebo control group, participants (107

in total) were randomly assigned to receive

micronutrients or a placebo, there were a

substantial number of Māori participants

(22%), and the participants and investigators

remained blind to the assigned condition until

the research ended.

Professor Rucklidge notes that there are some

limitations to the study.

The sample size was relatively small and

there were many dropouts during the study.

Replication by an independent research group

is highly desirable,” Professor Rucklidge says.

Quitting smoking is among the most

important health promoting changes a

person can make, and is the most costeffective

disease prevention intervention

available. Despite the benefits, many smokers

have difficulty quitting and the incidence

of smoking relapse is high, with many

smokers failing even 24 hours of continuous

abstinence after their quit date. Finding

better ways to help smokers to quit has been

identified by the Ministry of Health as a key

to achieving this goal. Smokers need help

first to quit successfully and then to remain

smokefree despite the challenges of withdrawal

symptoms, relapse, stress, and social pressure

to continue smoking.

New Zealand’s love affair with Rock

n Roll Hall of Famers, THE HOLLIES,

is about to get a whole lot hotter this

summer as they legendary band today

announces they’re bringing their The

Road Is Long Tour to eight cities in

February and March 2019.

Having enjoyed sell-out tours of New

Zealand, performing hits including Just

One Look, Bus Stop, Carrie Anne, He

Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother; Long Cool

Woman in a Black Dress, and The Air

That I Breathe their concerts have come

to embody the spirit of summer here.

Tickets to The Road is Long Tour go

on sale on Monday October 1st.

From their first recording at Abbey

Road in 1963, they became the face of

the legendary British Rock Revolution,

achieving more Top 10 hits than almost

any band in history. They have never

missed a single year of live performances

in over a half a century and have retained

exactly the same “sound” and musical

quality as they had when they first hit the

charts back in the Swinging Sixties.

Original member, Singer and lead

guitarist, Tony Hicks says: “People get

what they come for. The trademark

Hollies’ harmonies, our musical diversity

and lots of original songs from our

extensive musical back catalogue.”

Hollies drummer since 1963, Bobby

Elliott ... “We still tour the world

performing to sell-out audiences. Our

loyal fans keep coming back for more

and we’re happy to oblige. A Hollies

live performance usually lasts for over

two hours. There’s no finer feeling than

taking that final bow and seeing the sea

of beaming friendly faces standing before

us”

The Hollies are long time lovers of New

Zealand, (among other things our wine!),

Hicks says “we’re really looking forward

to playing 4 cities we’ve not visited for

many years - Invercargill, Dunedin,

Nelson, New Plymouth, and we’re also

returning to Christchurch, Wellington,

Hamilton and Auckland ... it’s our biggest

New Zealand tour in a long time!”

The Hollies have an enviable record

- over 30 charting singles on the UK

Singles chart and 22 on the Billboard

Hot 100, with major world-wide hits that

included “Just One Look” “Look Through

Any Window”, “I Can’t Let Go”, “Bus

Stop”, “Stop Stop Stop”, “On A Carousel”,

“Carrie Anne”, “Jennifer Eccles”, and later

“He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”, “Long

Cool Woman in a Black Dress”, and “The

Air That I Breathe”.

They remain one of the few British

groups of the early 1960s, along with

The Rolling Stones, that have never

disbanded and continue to record

and perform. In recognition of their

achievements, the Hollies were inducted

into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in

2010.

FIRST HUMAN

SCANNED

with nextgeneration

scanner

The first human has been scanned with a revolutionary new 3D

colour medical scanner invented in New Zealand by father and

son scientists from the Universities of Canterbury and Otago.

The MARS spectral x-ray scanner will revolutionise medical

imaging globally – and as a result the diagnosis and treatment

of diseases such as cancer and heart disease - because it

provides far greater detail of the body’s chemical components.

In the next few months, Christchurch orthopaedic and

rheumatology patients will be scanned by the machine in a

world-first clinical trial.

Father and son scientists Professors Phil and Anthony Butler

invented the MARS spectral x-ray scanner. Professor Phil

Butler is a physicist working at the University of Canterbury.

His son Anthony is a radiologist and Professor at both the

Universities of Otago and Canterbury.

The Butlers adapted technology used by the European

Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in the hunt for the

‘God particle’ into a medical scanner.

The MARS CT scanner produces images with significantly

improved diagnostic information. It measures the x-ray

spectrum to produce colour images instead of black-and-white

ones and shows different components of body parts such as fat,

water, calcium, and disease markers.

Small versions of the scanner that can house tissue samples

are already in use in research institutions around the world.

The first human has now been scanned through a larger form

of the scanner. Professor Phil Butler was the first person to be

scanned. His ankle and wrist were imaged.

The next step in development is an imminent clinical

trial where orthopaedic and rheumatology patients from

Christchurch will be scanned. This will allow the MARS team

to compare the images produced by their scanner with the

technology currently used in New Zealand hospitals.

The Butlers and their growing team of scientists have been

supported over the past decade of developing the machine

by the Universities of Otago and Canterbury; the Ministry of

Business, Innovation and Employment; and GE Healthcare.

MARS Bioimaging Ltd (MBI) has commercialised the product.

Professor Anthony Butler says after a decade in development

it is really exciting to have reached a point where it’s clear the

technology could be used for routine patient care.

“X-ray spectral information allows health professionals to

measure the different components of body parts such as fat,

water, calcium, and disease markers. Traditional black-andwhite

x-rays only allow measurement of the density and shape

of an object,” Professor Anthony Butler says.

“So far researchers have been using a small version of the

MARS scanner to study cancer, bone and joint health, and

vascular diseases that cause heart attacks and strokes. In all

of these studies, promising early results suggest that when

spectral imaging is routinely used in clinics it will enable more

accurate diagnosis and personalisation of treatment.”

Professor Butler says CERN’s Medipix3 technology sets the

machine apart diagnostically because its small pixels and

accurate energy resolution mean it can get images no other

imaging tool can.

“As a new imaging device, a new microscope if you like,

biomedical researchers can non-invasively see different kinds

of detail inside patients,” he says.

Price – Suzuki Swift Sport, $29,990

Dimensions – Length, 3890mm; width, 1735mm; height, 1495mm

Configuration – Four-cylinder, front-wheel-drive, 1373cc, 103kW, 230Nm, six-speed automatic

Performance – 0-100km/h, 8.1sec

Fuel usage – 6.1l/100km

It must also be remembered that beneath

the sporty persona the Swift in this form is

still the cheeky, practical, compact hatchback

we know the range for. It hasn’t lost sight of

what has made it an amazingly popular global

model. The Swift in all forms tempts with

its functionality and good use of compact

proportions, comfort has been a high

manufacturing priority.

Yes, the Sport model

does ride firmer than its

counterparts, but it

has to be that way, if

you want that high

degree of handling

prowess, the spring

and damper rates

need to be biased

towards firm. That’s

not saying the ride is

uncomfortable, it’s not,

but over Christchurch’s

rough road surfaces, there is

a firming in the suspension that

is noticeable, but it is compliant, only

just. Any firmer underneath and there would

be a point where it could become tiresome.

However, it’s not and for a car that has tube

beam axle it’s a credit to the suspension

engineers that there is that comfort factor.

It’s true to say that I like fully independent

rear suspension designs, but for the Swift

Sport’s price ($29,990 and $28,500 manual) it

By Ross Kiddie

MY SuperGold card arrived in the mail

the day I picked up a Suzuki Swift Sport for

evaluation.

If you are wondering why I’m making this

analogy, it is because I still see the Swift Sport

as a desirable sports car purchase even for

those who have reached retirement age.

One of my good friends has a Swift Sport,

and he is even older than me. He loves it, and

even though he doesn’t drive it overly hard, he

says it’s nice to have sports car performance

should it be needed.

In these columns, just a couple of months

ago, I evaluated the Swift Sport, and it was the

manual gearbox model. I’m still thinking that

would be the car for me, but this evaluation

focuses on the six-speed automatic variant

which will be the most popular seller in the

Sport range, and it is a car which doesn’t lose

anything in terms of overall performance.

The new Sport shares the same shape as

the new generation Swift range which was

launched here two years ago, but it must be

said the Sport has major cosmetic differences,

it has features biased towards a racy look such

as bold wheels, twin exhausts and discreet

spoilers. The interior looks bold as well, it has

red-stitched trim, body-hugging seats, and an

ambience which is just a little removed from

base model Swift, the Sport is definitely sportfocussed.

Bang-for-

Buck

suzuki

has a more simplistic system so that the entire

car is affordable. That aside, at city speeds, and

in the confines of traffic, it provides a delicate

feel, it is also easy to drive. However, the Swift

Sport likes the twisty back roads, I took the

evaluation car on my usual high country route

through to Hororata.

It is a car that is at ease on the highway, it

travels quietly and reacts positively through the

steering. The Swift Sport rides on performance

specification Continental tyres

(195/45 x 19in), they have

quiet-riding properties and

don’t complain under load.

Pushed into a corner it

stays composed, there

is little body lean and

the steering stays

firm, feedback of what

the tyres are doing is

constantly relayed to the

driver. Short-wheelbase

cars have unique cornering

characteristics and the Swift

Sport stays true to that, it feels

nimble, agile and balanced, the

entire handling process is involving and

that is something that I really enjoy.

The Swift Sport’s handling is balanced by

an appropriate amount of power. It gets the

1.4-litre turbocharged engine from the Vitara,

albeit with engine management protocols and

turbo boost adjusted so that performance

aspects take priority.

Suzuki claim 103kW and 230Nm power

outputs. As an aside, the flow of power and

torque can be monitored through a dash panel

display. The outputs are realised at usable parts

of the rev band, even though the lively little

engine will lunge to the redline, it’s through the

mid-range that the engine is most satisfying. It

is honest and produces a solid burst of energy,

power through the gearbox isn’t restricted,

acceleration is crisp. Against the stopwatch

a 6.1sec standstill to 100km/h time can be

expected, which is much the same as that

which can be achieved in the manual model.

All of the time the engine feels feisty, there’s

a little gasp of sound out of the exhausts when

the gears change, and that provides a sensation

which suggests there is something special

about the car. If you do exploit its performance,

it’s good to know you aren’t going to get

hammered come fuel fill up time, Suzuki claim

a 6.1-litre per 100km (46mpg) combined cycle

average.

The Swift Sport also carries Suzuki’s latest

safety specification package and that, along

with a high degree of creature comfort items,

makes the price point seem highly attractive.

For me I just love the way the Swift Sport

handles, and with its lively engine behaviour

it must be regarded as the best bang-for-buck

performance car on today’s market. That along

with the many purchasing benefits from the

Holland’s Suzuki Cars buying experience

makes it a very desirable car, even for

pensioners like me.

People may know that they are entitled

to have funds set aside for a pre-paid

funeral. What many people may not

be aware of are the different options

that exist and the amount that each

person is allowed to set aside for their

funeral which will not be included in

an assessment of their assets under the

present Work and Income rules.

Many people choose to enter

into a pre-paid funeral

arrangement with a

funeral director of their

choice. Generally

speaking, this will

be for a set amount

which is sufficient

to cover the costs of

are then invested in

Our People

Sam Moore

The face behind a viral cartoon

Christchurch artist Sam

Moore is the brains

behind the viral cartoon

sensation People of

New Zealand. The

series documents Kiwi

stereotypes such as

Office Jan, Hilux Surf

Drew and his most recent

Street Shuffle Les. He

talks to Julia Evans

How did you get into the

world of cartooning?

Well, I spend all day at work

on the computer so I started the

Ugly Ink Instagram a couple of

years ago with the purpose of just

putting up drawings every single

day. I figured that would make

me draw because I do everything

with ink and markers so I have

to get off the computer and do

that sort of thing every day.

That’s how it all started, I guess.

I’ve drawn for years, ever since

I was little so it was just making

me do it every day. I started

just on small Post-It Notes, so

even if its just one drawing, at

least there’s one Post-It Note

drawing every day. Things, I

guess, improved. They got a little

DESIGN: Cartoonist Sam Moore said he is inspired by every day Kiwis for his People of New

Zealand series.

more complicated as more people

started to look at the Instagram.

At the start I didn’t care what

anything looked like.

Now you’ve got almost

100,000 followers on that

Instagram, you’ve gone viral,

how does that feel?

Most of them are from the

United States, I think about 95

per cent are actually from the

US. Before I did the People of

New Zealand series I had like 500

followers on Facebook and since

I did that, it’s gone up to about

30,000 people on Facebook. For

some reason Kiwis only really use

Facebook. I had never really put

much effort into Facebook at all,

but now the following is starting

to come from New Zealand. I

think the Americans still relate

to the People of New Zealand,

though. They say: “Oh I know

this guy, he’s from Colorado and

lives down the road from me,” so

there’s something to relate to. It’s

never the fancy people, they’re

just people I see every day so it

could relate to America but I feel

I don’t have the jurisdiction to

draw people from other countries.

I have to put in my own New

Zealand context because that’s

what I’m living.

Do you remember what you

were doing when your first

cartoon blew up?

I thought Radio Hauraki might

like it, so I’m glad that worked.

But the thing is, about a year

ago I recorded this video of me

colouring in a circle and right at

the end I go over the edge and

screw it up because I knew that

would really annoy people.

Thursday October 18 2018

Our People

Depicting the quintessential Kiwi

That video got over a million

views, so I was used to that I

guess. But I’ve never had any

attention within New Zealand.

I put the first People of New

Zealand cartoon up on Reddit

and that sort of went to the top

of Reddit on the New Zealand

thread. Ever since then I put

them up and it goes to the top

pretty much every time.

Have you had any exciting

opportunities after the People of

New Zealand series went viral?

Yes, there’s been people

asking for commissions. I’ve

always done that but it’s people

from New Zealand asking for

commissions and things like

that. There’s a few little projects

which are currently in the fire,

but I can’t really talk about those.

I mean, I’ve got a book contract

that will be out sometime next

year. The coolest thing that

happened last week was some

people from Stewart Island had

a party and the theme of it was

to dress up as a person of New

Zealand. They sent me a bunch

of photos so that was really good

to see. I think by far that sort

of thing is the coolest to see. I

thought that was awesome. But

even when I hear people talking

about it, that’s really cool too.

What is the process of

creating one of these

drawings?

In terms of inspiration, the

people that I’ve done, I’ve had

those people in my head for

a long time and never really

thought about drawing them

before. It’s getting harder as I

go along. I might just go and sit

at the shopping mall or go and

sit down and have lunch. But

most of these people I’ve had in

my head for 25 or 30 years and I

see them every day. I categorise

them into an Office Jan or a Shae.

Sometimes the idea takes a lot

longer than creating the actual

art work. I mean, it can take two

or three hours to create an art

work but coming up with the

little points can be a lot more

difficult. Like I’ve probably got 50

or 60 other ideas just jotted down

but I’ve not got quite enough

detail to make them into a full

art work yet. So I think that is

more difficult. I’ll just go for a

walk and find that these people

will come to me. Then I do a

preliminary pencil sketch, ink

it up with an ink pen and then

use some markers to colour it

and add highlights, things like

that. I do it every day, I get home

from work and draw every day,

so you work out a good process of

getting it done.

What do you do for work?

I work in advertising, I’m an

art director so campaigns and

graphic design and all of those

sorts of things. It’s not anything

that I’d want to shout about but it

pays the bills and is interesting.

Is art in your family?

Yes, well, my dad Dave Moore

was a writer and an art director.

He worked for The Star back in

the day. He was art director at

The Star and then art director

and motoring editor at The

Press. I worked at The Press for

about three or four years, it was

cool. I worked in the editorial

department doing the graphics

and stuff. That was my first

proper job out of polytech. I

remember going into dad’s office

during the school holidays,

sitting at one of the empty work

stations and using the markers

and fancy pens to draw pictures.

That was always fun.

Have your always lived in

Christchurch?

I studied here and worked here

before I moved to Australia for

five or six years about four or five

years ago. It was mainly working

for apparel companies doing

illustration and things.

What else do you draw

other than People of New

Zealand?

After a while, I started to

put all the weird things I was

drawing, because I like sci-fi and

fantasy, so I wanted to put them

all together in the same place and

have a reason for them to exist.

SATIRE: Office Jan and Shae are two of

artist Sam Moore’s creations from his

People of New Zealand series.

So I’ve made this world called

Flogoria and while I haven’t

planned it out too much really,

I have locations and characters

and creatures that all live in

this world, which is fun. So I’m

working on a pitch document

for a company in Los Angeles for

that at the moment. Ideally, I’d

love to make Flogoria into a full

story. That could be a cartoon

or a book or a movie or a TV

series or something like that. So

that’s progressing slowly at the

moment, but it’s going well. I’ve

been meaning to work on it for

the last two or so months.

What other hobbies do you

have outside of cartooning?

I don’t really have time for

anything else. I get home and

I draw. Other than that I like

eating food and I’m a casual

sports fan, I guess. The Black

Caps are my favourite sports

team. I’ll give you a little preview,

there’s an interesting cricket

thing that I’m working on and

might be happening soon.

Food

vendors,

live music

for empty

quake site

• By Louis Day

SOUTH NEW Brighton is

about to be revitalised.

Nearly eight years since the

February 22, 2011, earthquake

wrecked shops on the corner of

Estuary Rd and Bridge St, new

commercial and entertainment

activities may only be weeks away.

The empty plot of land on the

corner is set to be filled with a

community common ground.

Live music and food from

food vendors will be on offer

and it is hoped that it will be up

and running before Christmas.

The common ground will be

managed by the Bridge South

Brighton Trust, the food will be

provided by the Food Collective

and Sustain South Brighton will

organise the events.

Sustain South Brighton community

activator Samantha Fay

said the common ground was

exactly what the community

needed.

“To have that common ground,

that gathering space where people

can come together and hang out

and share knowledge and learn

from each other, that’s going to be

amazing to have,” she said.

Ms Fay said the community

common ground would have a

focus on sustainability.

“Lots of the workshops on the

space will have a real green focus,

what you can do to reduce waste,

ways you can be more sustainable

at home like gardening and

things like that.”

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board deputy chairman Tim

Sintes was confident the common

ground would get a lot of use.

“I think what’s being thrown

in there will be used all the time,

the place is crying out for something.

Between Southshore and

Brighton there’s not much in the

way of shops.”

Mr Sintes also applauded the

commitment made from the

food trucks on the site to only

use recyclable materials.

Gardening

Plenty to keep you busy in the warm

TEMPERATURES are trending

upwards and gardens are starting

to flourish.

There is plenty to keep gardeners

busy while they enjoy the longer,

warmer hours in the garden.

Vege garden

Soil is key when it comes to

growing healthy veggie crops so

build good organic soil structure

by adding plenty of fresh compost

to existing soil and mixing well.

Plant out summer vegetables

like beans, beetroot, carrots, celery,

courgettes, cucumbers, corn,

leeks, lettuce, melons, onions,

radish, pumpkin and tomato.

Stagger plantings so you have a

constant supply over the season.

Apply side dressings of vegetable

fertiliser once plants are established

– this will help the development

of healthy, nutritious

vegetables. Water young plants

deeply when required to encourage

a strong root system.

Don’t be put off if you have a

lack of space; you can successfully

grow vegetables in raised beds or

in pots and containers.

Flowering annuals

Make room for your summer

flowering annuals by removing

any winter ones. Again, add

plenty of rich, fresh compost and

PLANTING TIME: Indoors or outdoors its time to get flowers in the dirt.

turn the soil over well. Summer

annuals can include alyssum,

asters, cornflowers, californian

poppy, cosmos, livingstone daisy,

lobelia, marigolds, nemesia, petunias,

portulaca, phlox, salvias,

sweet peas and zinnias.

Fruit trees

Apply fruit tree fertiliser and as

the soil warms up, mulch around

trees to help keep weeds away

and aid water retention. Grape

vines and kiwifruit vines will be

growing vigorously and may need

some trimming to keep under

control.

Strawberries

Towards the end of the month,

early varieties of strawberries

start to ripen, much to the delight

of birds, so make sure you cover

plants with a net. Fungal grey

mould or botrytis can affect

strawberries so keep checking

plants, removing any infected

leaves quickly. Adding pea straw

or hay around plants also helps,

and keeps the ripening berries

clean and healthy.

Herbs

Remove last season’s herbs and

plant out new season varieties,

including basil. Plant more than

one of your favourite herbs so you

have plenty on hand. Snip herbs

regularly (even when you’re not

using them) to encourage fresh

growth.

Lawns

Time to tackle any lawn repairs

now that the soil is warming up.

Where you have bare patches in

the lawn, add new topsoil before

broadcasting lawn seed and

lightly water to activate germination.

Apply lawn fertiliser to existing

lawns if you haven’t already

and mow regularly to encourage

growth.

Ornamental shrubs

Because winter shrubs like

azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons

are coming to the end

of their flowering, they’ll need

minor pruning before they break

into spring growth. Apply acid

fertiliser in late October along

with some mulch.

Container gardening

Flowers in pots, containers

and hanging baskets add colour

throughout the summer months

to decks, entranceways, courtyards

and balconies. Herbs and

some vegetables (there dwarf

vegetable varieties) also grow well

in containers.

the container (don’t forget the outside).

Being in a confined space means potted

plants deplete the soil more quickly of nutrients,

BATTLE: Once highly-touted junior cyclist Keagan

Girdlestone, 21, is now battling with his mind after

overcoming the injuries he sustained from a major

accident in Italy in 2016.

Girdlestone battles internal demon

Two years ago Keagan Girdlestone was learning how to physically cycle again after a major crash. Now he’s facing a battle with post-traumatic

stress as he endeavours to keep his Tour de France dreams alive. Gordon Findlater reports on Girdlestone’s new battle with his own mind

IN JUNE 2016, Keagan

Girdlestone was feared dead after

crashing into the back of a team

vehicle while racing in Italy.

He severed his carotid artery

and jugular vein, suffered

bruising to the brain and several

strokes, and went into cardiac

arrest on the operating table.

He was told by doctors he

would never ride again. But in

July, the Christchurch rider travelled

to France to race in Europe

for the first time since making a

remarkable physical recovery.

However, what was about to

unfold in France has left the

21-year-old with another barrier

to overcome.

While on a training ride, Girdlestone

felt a kink in his neck

– which was badly-damaged in

his big crash. He had no idea he

was experiencing his first posttraumatic

stress event.

“I started suffering a panic attack,

but I didn’t know any of the

symptoms. I just kept thinking

to myself ‘holy cow, I’m having a

stroke’. It was terrifying being in

the middle of nowhere in France

and knowing if I have a stroke

now, I’m dead,” said Girdlestone.

“I thought ‘is this where I die

. . . did I come this far just to die

on a training ride?’”

“I remember afterwards talking

to my dad on the phone and

I just burst into tears because I

was terrified.”

Shaken by the event, Girdlestone

was unsure what he had

just experienced. The same week,

he got back on the bike and

looked to prove to himself there

was nothing wrong with his

neck by doing a 1min effort ride.

This saw him record a personal

best since the accident and his

fourth best time ever. The posttraumatic

stress would return

just days later, though, when he

was on another training ride.

“I looked down and my heart

rate was 130, and then the next

minute it was 160 out of nowhere

. . . I wasn’t peddling but my

heart rate was through the roof.”

Girdlestone stopped cycling

and waved down a local farmer

who assisted him before he went

to hospital.

“I was reassured that there was

nothing wrong. I had an MRI

done and it came up fine.”

The fear of getting back on

the bike led to Girdlestone

returning home from France a

month earlier than expected. A

number of other panic attacks

led Girdlestone to learn that

what he was experiencing were

post-traumatic stress events. This

was confirmed after visiting a

psychologist.

CHAMPION: In

2014, Keagan

Girdlestone

put himself

on the scene

by becoming

the youngest

ever winner at

16-years-old of

Le Race.

For two months the panic attacks

left him too scared to even

ride his bike. “At one stage, I did

think to myself

I might

stop riding

because I

thought there

was no way I

could get on a

bike and not

freak the hell

out.”

“I didn’t

want to believe

it at first because I’ve never

been the kind of person to have

any mental issues, even throughout

this entire experience of my

accident. It makes sense to me

now that I’ve had the symptoms

explained to me.”

Girdlestone has little memory

of the accident in 2016 and no

memory of any pain. However,

he believes his brain has linked

the sensation he is experiencing

‘I feel like I’m being

surrounded by a fence

that’s holding me back

and all I’ve got to do is

take the blindfold off

and realise there’s no

fence’ – Keagan Girdlestone

in his neck to pain experienced

during the crash.

“I think sub-consciously my

brain remembers

exactly what that

pain felt like.”

His dream

of returning

to competitive

cycling this

time around is a

whole different

experience to

what he was going

through two

years ago.

“When I’m riding or working

on my rehab, the physical things

I can just attack full gas and just

work hard, but when it comes

to the mental side of things, it’s

about accepting that you actually

have to take a step back and

look at the bigger picture. You’ve

got to know that, where you are

now, it’s not going to be like this

forever.”

Girdlestone went for a twohour

ride this week – his longest

since returning home – and

experienced only minor issues.

“You just get on the bike and

hope for the best.”

“I make sure I’m in a good

head space before I get on the

bike because I don’t want riding

a bike to be associated with

panic, discomfort and unenjoyment.”

The first priority is to get my

love for riding again . . . for the

moment, it’s been quite terrifying.”

Girdlestone shot to prominence

in 2014 as a 16-year-old

by becoming the youngest winner

of the 100km Le Race event

from Christchurch to Akaroa.

In 2015, he finished fourth in

the time trial at the junior world

champs representing his home

nation of South Africa.

He believes a big part in getting

his head in the right space

will involve putting his focus towards

a target rather than where

he was before the accident and

what he used to be able to do.

“It’s just like a blindfold and

I’ve got to take it off. I feel like

I’m being surrounded by a fence

that’s holding me back and all

I’ve got to do is take the blindfold

off and realise there’s no fence.”

Girdlestone has also started

wearing a balaclava around his

neck to dampen the sensation he

feels.

The wind when I’m riding

really triggers that effect.”

“Hopefully, I’ll get over it in

time for summer otherwise I

imagine I’ll get quite hot.”

event.

It might not quite have the

history of the Ryder Cup, but the

annual clash between the two

clubs has its own special place for

the 82-year-old.

“If you’ve been to one you keep

on going. It’s a great crowd of

jokers,” said Newburn.

A bus carrying 36 Templeton

golfers travelled to St Clair last

weekend for the interclub. In

comparison, the first time it took

place in 1968, a group travelled

south in a car pool with a trailer

for their clubs.

St Clair took out this year’s

event and have had the rub of the

green over 50 years of competition.

They are slightly ahead.

They’ve got an advantage down

there, they put on bad weather

for us. You get out to the point

and you can’t even hold your

golf club because of the wind but

those jokers can.”

Newburn is currently playing

off a 25 handicap and peaked

at a two during the 1970s. He

has won four Templeton club

championships over the years as

well as the Bottle Lake title and

Buller Open.

Golf takes up a healthy chunk

of his life these days, along with a

strong interest in harness racing.

“I’ve bet a lot of money on slow

horses.” The interclub festivities

started last Friday with a chipping

competition and a meal

before individual match play and

a formal dinner on Saturday,

then four ball on Sunday.

The guest of honour was

former New Zealand distance

runner Dick Tayler, who won

gold in the 10,000m at the 1974

Commonwealth Games in

his backyard.

Christchurch. He was roasted

by racing personality Greg

O’Connor for the enjoyment of

about 100 guests.

Newburn said the evening’s

celebrations finished up at

around midnight at a local pub.

The inaugural interclub was

organised by Bill Peterson

(Templeton) and Graeme Skelton

(St Clair).

Peter Stoddart, who was the

professional at both St Clair and

Templeton, also played.

Many sportsmen have played

for the Templeton team over

the years, including former All

Blacks fullback Rex Orr and

harness racing personality John

Noble.

St Clair has had notable players

as well, including All Blacks first

five Laurie Haig and New Zealand

golfer Ron Johnston.

Newburn doesn’t plan for the

recent event to be his last and

even hopes to get his handicap

below 25 with a bit of help from

his doctor.

Does a 51-man squad cheapen the All Blacks jersey?

IF YOU heard someone say ‘the

All Blacks just named a 51-man

squad for their upcoming tour’,

you’d be excused for thinking

the Wright brothers – or Richard

Pearse as we’ve been forced to

learn out of blind pride – haven’t

invented flight yet, and the group

of most likely predominately

North Canterbury farmers are

boarding a ship for a rare venture

to the Northern Hemisphere.

However, the reality is we’re

in 2018. Mid-week fixtures

are a thing of the past and, if

someone succumbs to injury,

a replacement is 24 hours via

the airport away rather than

spending weeks at sea.

So why do we need to name

51 players for a five-match tour

of Japan and Europe over the

next month? Sure, it will be nice

to give some fringe players a

run against Japan when we play

them on November 3 in Tokyo

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

but something still seems weird

about saying Brett Cameron has

been named in the All Blacks.

In recent times, we’ve seen how

big the lure of the All Blacks is.

Guys will grind away year after

year, at times working endlessly

to get their chance, in a time

that can seem like Super Rugby

form means nothing and you’re

almost waiting for established

names to play themselves out of

the jersey.

Also, consider the mental

determination to do that when

you’re living in an era when

you can go to Europe to make

big money, but say goodbye

to the All Blacks dream in the

process.

With 51 players being able to

say they are current All Blacks,

are we not cheapening the

brand?

Is a New Zealand A team

not an option? If Steve Hansen

and co like the idea of having

our fifth-string half-back and

first-five options having some

international experience just in

case four other guys all fall over

at next year’s World Cup, why

not run a New Zealand A tour at

the end of each year?

There’s no doubting the

depth of our rugby – we

could realistically run a

competitive A team in the Rugby

Championship.

But for me, by naming 51 men

as All Blacks, you’re not saying

much for how difficult it is to

wear the jersey.

Johnson gets nod to ride

Savvy Coup in Cox Plate

• By Gordon Findlater

CHRIS JOHNSON has been

confirmed to ride Savvy Coup

when she faces Australian

wonder horse Winx in the Cox

Plate on October 27.

Trainer Michael Pitman, who

is still in Christchurch Hospital

following a bowl cancer operation

last week,

confirmed he had

spoken to Johnson

about the opportunity

to ride

in his first Cox

Plate. Johnson

Michael

Pitman

rode Savvy Coup

to victory at the

Livamol Classic.

With AU$5 million in prize

money up for grabs at the Cox

Plate compared to AU$3 million

last year, it has the potential to

be a big pay-day for Pitman and

Johnson who would receive five

per cent of the winning stakes.

“We thought long and hard

about it . . . Chris has been riding

winners for us for 35 years. He

knows the horse and has had

success on her,” said Pitman.

He says the only other rider he

and part-owner Ray Coupland

would have considered was

Hugh Bowman who will ride

Winx in the race.

Whether or not Pitman will

be at Moonee Valley for the race

CALL UP: Chris Johnson will ride Savvy Coup in the Cox

Plate.

is still up in the air. He is due to

leave hospital on Friday but will

wait until next week before making

a call on his health.

“Monday and Tuesday I would

have said no way. I wasn’t in the

right head space either. I feel better

today.”

“If I’m right, I’ll be there that’s

for sure.”

Savvy Coup left for Melbourne

via Sydney yesterday morning

ahead of the Cox Plate race. Pitman’s

wife Diane will travel to

great bevvies

Melbourne on Monday.

If Pitman is fit for the trip, he

will leave for Melbourne with his

son Matthew – who also trains

Savvy Coup – next Thursday.

•Savvy coup is at $26 to

win on TAB fixed odds,

dominated by Winx at

$1.20. Caulfield Stakes

winner Benbatl is next at

$10 ahead of last year’s

Cox Plate runner-up

Humidor at $15.

Charity match in limbo

• By Gordon Findlater

THE FUTURE of a 35-year-old

cricket fundraising event for

cystic fibrosis is in limbo due to

the creation of a similar event set

to take place a month later.

The annual Crusaders v an allstar

invitational team twenty20

cricket match is due to take place

at Hagley Oval on December 15.

However, The Star understands

the future of the event is unsure

due to the Black Clash event at

the same venue on January 19.

Black Clash is a new event

created by Duco Events, which

is best known for promoting

Tickets to the Black Clash

match are being sold for $59 for

It is a similar concept to the

former New Zealand cricketers

and other well-known sporting

figures.

The Black Clash will be

played between Team Cricket

New CX-8 slots neatly

into Mazda line-up

I GOT talking to the

regional manager of Star

Media the other day.

Steve McCaughan is a car

enthusiast and we got into

a conversation about rising

fuel prices and we were

weighing up the options of

diesel against petrol.

Mr McCaughan’s daily

driver is a diesel-fed Volvo

XC90, and he said that

even though he travels a

lot of kilometres in a year,

by the time you take into

account road user charges

it works out only slightly

cheaper to use diesel.

I agreed, but also argued

that you get an involving

driving experience

with diesel, the mid-range

torque that the modern

diesels develop provides

much satisfaction.

The subject of this evaluation

is Mazda’s CX-8, a

large, seven-seat crossover/

sport utility vehicle which

has just been released on

the New Zealand market,

and the reason for

my introduction is that

the CX-8 is a diesel-only

model.

That’s not unusual, in the

last couple of years there

have been several new diesel-only

models launched.

and in an age where the

advantages are fast being

eroded, there is still a

healthy market for diesel,

and Mazda will capitalise

on that.

The CX-8 lands here in

three specification variations;

it starts at $53,495

(two-wheel-drive) and ends

at $62,495 for a Limited

four-wheel-drive.

It was the latter that I had

on test and I immediately

formed a bond with it. As

you would expect from

Mazda, it is beautifullybuilt

and feels just right

when you are seated and

when it drives, there is an

involving feel, and as a

vehicle it reeks of quality, it

is also a car which is highspecced

and intuitive to

become familiar with.

The CX-8 shares a lot

of hardware and software

that is fitted right across

the Mazda range, it is

user-friendly and spacious,

occupant comfort has been

a high manufacturing priority.

It is also an easy to vehicle

to access, wide rearopening

doors means getting

in and out of the third

row of seats isn’t restricted.

Along with all of the

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

MAZDA CX-8: Diesel power only.

usual features you’d expect

in an SUV of this stature,

the CX-8 also has a high

safety ingredient. The

i-Activesense suite of safety

technologies includes the

latest generation features

to come out of the Mazda

development process.

• Price – Mazda CX-8

Limited, $62,495

• Dimensions –

Length, 4900mm;

width, 1840mm;

height, 1720mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive,

2191cc,

140kW, 450Nm, sixspeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.9sec

• Fuel usage –

6l/100km

The Star

Under the bonnet sits

a 2.2-litre, turbocharged,

four-cylinder engine. It

drives through a traditional

six-speed automatic gearbox,

and while that doesn’t

seem out of the ordinary,

the thing is that the driveline

is spectacular in its

simplicity, it gets about its

business cleanly and effectively.

Mazda rates the CX-8

with 140kW and 450Nm.

In traditional diesel form it

develops maximum torque

very low down at just

2000rpm, which relates to a

strong throttle pedal feel.

As mentioned, that burst

through the mid-range is

quite exciting, the CX-8 is

quick (80km/h to 120km/h

in 5sec and 8.9sec to make

100km/h from a standstill)

and it delivers its verve

without complaint. The

engine works tirelessly with

subdued sound right across

the rev band, and the entire

vehicle is superbly quiet at

all speeds.

Mazda also claims a sixlitre

per 100km (47mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage

rating. That’s a good figure

for a heavy vehicle

(1840kg). At 100km/h on

the highway the engine

is turning over at just

2000rpm, returning a

5l/100km (56mpg) instantaneous

figure. At the conclusion

of my evaluation

the CX-8 was showing an

average of just 7l/100km

(41mpg), which I thought

was spectacular given that

included acceleration testing

and a couple of acrosstown

journeys.

I also drove my usual

highway loop taking in

the great roads around

Hororota, long sweeping

corners, and the occasional

tight section.

The CX-8 is superbly

quiet and smooth at open

road speed, and has controlled

balance over the

suspension. It is tall at over

1.7m, but there is little body

lean in a corner, and the

suspension soaks up uneven

surfaces with absorbent

bump and rebound. Of

course, each axle is located

by a fully independent

suspension set-up and that

complexity provides surety.

With 200mm of ground

clearance the CX-8 has

a little more ability than

the average cross-country

vehicle. It’s not a true offroader,

but it is at home

on uneven tracks, the long

travel suspension adapts to

broken surfaces and grip

goes down well through

huge 19in Toyo tyres

(225/55).

The CX-8 sits neatly

between CX-5 and CX-9

in the Mazda line-up, but it

is there to offer an alternative

for those brave enough

to take the diesel plunge,

those who do will find it

very worthwhile.

If you are a high-mileage

vehicle user and you need

a large wagon, the CX-8

answers that criteria. It’s

a pleasure to drive and its

bulk is far from a burden.

It is also fuel-friendly that

will pay its way over time.

& 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.

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.
