Scooters make their mark

But concerns

over speed

and injuries

• By Ashleigh Monk

CONCERN IS growing over the

popular Lime e-scooters.

Two e-scooter related deaths

have so far been recorded in the

United States, and some say it’s

only a “matter of time” before an

incident occurs in New Zealand.

ACC has had five Lime

scooter-related injuries reported

in Christchurch and nine in

Auckland since the scooters were

launched on October 15.

The Lime-user agreement states

riders must be over 18-years-old.

But that didn’t deter Faith

Bennett and Hannah Peart

(right), both 17, from hopping

on a scooter together and riding

through the city centre yesterday.

They said they had a few nearmisses.

“We’ve had people say ‘be

careful’ and ‘don’t fall off’ because

we’re on it together going really

fast,” Faith said.

“We were just going down the

road and there were three guys

walking towards us, and I was

trying to ring my bell, and I was

like ‘move, you’re going to get hit’,

but the bell isn’t loud enough,”

Hannah said.

Faith said the pair weren’t aware

of the age restriction.

“We’ve seen multiple kids

on them and thought we were

allowed because we had our

driver’s licence.”

joke

• By Sophie Cornish

WHEN AN armed robber

ordered people playing the pokies

to lie on the floor, Jenny Hogg

thought it was a joke.

But when Ms Hogg saw the

offender’s firearm was not a toy

gun like she first

thought, she

realised it was

serious.

Ms Hogg

was playing

the pokies on

Tuesday night at

Coasters Tavern

in Redwood

when three

armed robbers

held up the bar.

Jenny Hogg

During the ordeal shortly before

9pm, one patron, an elderly man,

tried to wrestle with one of the

robbers. It is believed he was hit in

the forehead with the blunt end of

a machete.

Ms Hogg said he received a cut

to his forehead. A woman in her

20s also received a fat lip, she said.

A shot was fired during the

ordeal, which lasted between five

and eight minutes.

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

Battle to beat high rate of skin cancer

• By Anan Zaki

MORE THAN 300 people will

die from melanoma by the end of

the year.

It is the most serious form of

skin cancer and New Zealand

leads the world in melanoma

rates.

As the summer heat edges

closer and daylight hours get

longer, people

are being urged

to get their

skin checked.

The

Canterbury

Charity

Hospital will

Victoria

Scott-Lang

host free skin

checks on

Saturday for

those aged

over 50.

In the latest Ministry of Health

regional data, the Canterbury

District Health Board registered

309 new melanoma patients in

2015.

In the same year, 85 per cent of

new patients in the country were

aged over 50.

The free testing at the charity

hospital is organised by Skincan

NZ, an organisation aimed at

raising awareness for skin cancer.

Dermatologist Victoria

Scott-Lang is one of the doctors

volunteering her time for the free

checks.

“Patients will be checked from

the top of their heads to their

feet. Their whole skin will be

checked,” she said.

“We examine them with a

dermatoscope, a really high

powered magnifying lens,” Dr

Scott-Lang said.

A 2012 Ministry of Health

study showed that age is the

highest risk factor for melanoma

due to having weaker immune

systems and thinner skin.

Dr Scott-Lang says other risk

factors should be considered as

well.

“Someone with a family history

of melanoma should be aware

that their own risk increases.”

“Anyone with fair skin that

burns easily, has wrinkling, you

should be thinking about testing

from age 30 onwards,” Dr Scott-

Lang said.

But the best way of prevention

is sunscreen and reapplying it

throughout the day, she said.

Skincan NZ is also launching

the city’s first free sunscreen

dispenser tomorrow at Margaret

Mahy Family Playground.

Said Skincan NZ founder

Leeann Marriott: “We’re

launching three across

Christchurch. They will also be

at the Botanical Gardens and

Scarborough playground.”

“We’re hoping to spread them

further afield but we’re just

trialling it for six months,” Mrs

Marriott said.

E-scooters rip around town

•From page 1

Lee Matthews and Darren

Edwards, who were in town

for lunch, were shocked at how

careless some riders were.

“It’s a joke . . . you could go

tearing past a shop and hit an old

lady or something like that,” Mr

Matthews said.

“I’m a kid at heart, but toys

like this should be played with

in places where there’s not much

chance of fallout, not on the

streets of the central city,” Mr

Edwards.

“As a driver, if I hit someone

I’d get done for manslaughter

when they’re the ones who come

out in front of you . . . it’s only a

matter of time before something

happens.”

The ride-sharing initiative was

launched in California last year

and has since spread to more

than 80 cities across the globe.

In Christchurch and Auckland,

users can ride on footpaths,

roads and some cycle lanes

without a helmet, travelling up to

30km/h.

Christchurch launched 400

app-controlled scooters, with

another 300 expected to be

deployed within a month.

Lime paid the city

council $136 for a three-month

mobile trading permit for the

scooters.

A city council spokeswoman

said it had received feedback but

as this was Lime’s trial, it had

been forwarded to the company.

ACC senior injury prevention

specialist Kirsten Malpas said

safety was a concern as riders

were not required to wear safety

gear.

“Wearing a helmet, limiting

speed and keeping to road rules

are standard mechanisms for

keeping safe. The challenge,

however, from a safety

perspective with e-scooters is

how people use them, mostly for

e-scooters have been

short incidental trips rather than

a planned scooter ride they’d

have prepared for.”

St Andrew’s College even

banned them from their campus

as some had been left outside the

school.

Police Inspector Ash Tabb said

he had not heard of any incidents

involving the scooters.

“We’re just here to be an

adviser in terms of the safety and

use of the scooters, just to make

sure they’re being used as safely

as possible,” he said.

A New Zealand Transport

Agency spokeswoman said a

transport review to look into

rules for scooter-riders was being

planned.

Chowing down on ratepayers’

Fire rages, homes at risk

money

WHAT HAS BEEN SPENT

ON FOOD:

• By Anan Zaki

COMMUNITY board members

have chomped through just

over $49,000 of biscuits, candy

and savouries since they were

elected.

That is the catering bill

ratepayers have funded for

community board meetings

since the election in 2016.

The biggest spender was

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board.

The nine members have eaten

food to the value of $10,000.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board chairman

Mike Mora defended the expenses.

He said catering at meetings is

a “necessity.”

Community

boards meet

every two to

three weeks,

but take a

recess from

January to

Mike Mora

December.

“I don’t

think it’s right for people sitting

for two or three hours with hunger

pains,” Mr Mora said.

Mr Mora said the food was

also available to city council staff

members and members of the

public who attended meetings.

“Personally, I think it’s for

the wider benefit of everybody

who attends the meeting to be

able to have a sandwich, a savoury

or a bit of fruit,” Mr Mora

said.

Board deputy chairwoman

Helen Broughton was “shocked”

to learn her board was the top

spender.

She said the

board will

discuss the

food expenses

in two weeks.

“We’re going

Helen

Broughton

to have to

have a serious

discussion

– does it

continue at all or does it continue

at a lesser level?” Ms Broughton

said.

“It’s far too much to be spending,”

she said.

Ms Broughton also said the

board never made it clear to

members of the public attending

meetings they could share in the

food.

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood

Community

Board spent

the least on

catering.

The board

only caters

for meetings

Sam

MacDonald

which have a

“substantial”

agenda or if

it is combined with other

boards.

Chairman Sam MacDonald

said the board decided early into

its current term that catering

meetings was not a good use of

ratepayers’ money.

“I think the reality is that in

any workplace, [catering is] not

something that’s readily available

or readily offered.”

Mr MacDonald said the food

that’s usually provided are biscuits

and lollies.

“We were just cognisant of

the fact that in the end, we

represent the community and

are outcomes focused and

we need to be mindful

with ratepayers’ funds,” Mr

MacDonald said.

A variety of caterers are used

by the community boards, and

sometimes the food is purchased

from supermarkets, city council

head of community support,

governance and partnership John

Filsell said.

Staff at schools and universities

an online scam. Recipients of the

Sergeant Nicola Reeves said if

anyone receives an email contact

the person who they believe sent

Campbell wants public to hear his fate

• By Julia Evans

AARON CAMPBELL wants his

execution from his role on the

community board to be held in

public.

But the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

deputy chairman is unlikely to

get his wish.

Mr Campbell asked city council

chief executive Karleen Edwards

his axing from the role should be

part of the public forum of the

community board’s meeting on

Monday.

He wants the issue to be dealt

with as transparently as possible.

“I believe ratepayers need

transparency and confidence on

how decisions are made in this

city,” he said.

However, Dr Edwards told Mr

Campbell that it was the decision

to be made by the whole board

during the meeting.

Board chairman Sam

MacDonald said he wouldn’t

comment until after the meeting.

But city councillor and board

member Aaron Keown said it

should be done in a public excluded

section of the meeting.

“It’s cleaner and clearer that

way,” he said.

Board member David Cartwright

said holding the conversation

in public-excluded was the

advice the board had been given.

“It allows everyone to be up

front and have a good conversation,”

he said.

City councillor and board

member Jamie Gough said it was a

sensitive matter so staff have recommended

a public-excluded section.

“I have no reason to feel it

should be otherwise,” he said.

City councillor and board

member Raf Manji said it was

up to Mr MacDonald to decide.

Board member Bridget Williams

said she didn’t mind either way.

“I think for me, it’s one of

those things that has benefits for

both. It does provide an element

of transparency but it’s also an

internal issue,” she said.

Board members Shirish Paranjape

and Linda Chen.

Last week, The Star revealed

the board had filed a notice of

motion with Dr Edwards to have

Mr Campbell removed as deputy

chairman.

The motion was filed after he

Karleen

Edwards

Aaron

Campbell

spoke out about the council’s

membership of Water New Zealand

during a board area report

to city councillors.

The move to sack him comes

as there are disagreements 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

decision-making process and

relationships.

There has been friction on

the Papanui-Innes Community

Board, an independent facilitator

was also used.

Reality stars in town for birthday

• By Ashleigh Monk

WHAT BETTER way to celebrate

your 50th birthday than with

your favourite reality television

stars?

KB’s Bakery chain owner Kim

Buckley will fly Storage Wars

stars Sally and Laurence Martin

to New Zealand for his partner

Mandy Rooney’s birthday in

November.

The Martin’s make their living

buying and selling items at auction,

and along with Storage Wars

they have also starred in spin-off

show Baggage Battles.

Mr Buckley said he and Ms

Rooney, who live Papanui, met

the couple in 2014 at their Los

Angeles, California antiques store

Studio Antiques.

“We met them after I had a

heart attack over in America. It

was only a wee one, but shortly

after I’d gotten out of hospital we

went to visit their shop,” he said.

“I said to Mandy on the way

to LA airport ‘why don’t we call

in and see the Baggage Battles

people and see if they are at there

shop in El Segoda?’ It was right

by the airport, so we called in .

. . we all clicked straight away,

Laurence thought I was his long

lost brother.”

Mr Buckley said he and Ms

Rooney were not only fans of the

Martin’s, but also good friends.

“Every time we go to the US we

go and see them, we’ve got to be

quite good mates,” he said.

He said he and Ms Rooney

were not antique collectors.

“We are more into bar memorabilia.

But we like them for

them, and that’s likewise, and just

love their whole attitude. They are

lovely people. Laurence is a bit eccentric,

and Sally is just a lovely,

happy-go-lucky lady.”

He said the Martin’s had never

been to New Zealand, but were

looking forward to visiting.

Mr Buckley said he and Ms

Rooney met seven years ago

through friends.

“We didn’t actually like each

other at first, but through lots of

talking and getting to know each

other things blossomed.”

He said Laurence and Sally

Dolphins, pile driving spark questions

• By Matt Salmons

THE BANKS Peninsula

Community Board will ask the

Lyttelton Port Company about

its plan to manage the impact

of pile driving on Hector’s

dolphins.

The board decided to question

LPC after a presentation from

Māui and Hector’s Dolphin

Defenders committee member

Genevieve Robinson last week.

She said she wanted to see

LPC’s cruise berth design and

marine mammal management

plans made publicly available.

She had questioned LPC on

its plans and said most of her

questions remained unanswered.

Community board member

Felix Dawson says the board

wants to assist Ms Robinson in

getting the answers she seeks

as other will

be concerned

about the

dolphins’

protection.

“We wanted

to help get

the answers

she wanted

because it’s

Genevieve

Robinson ​

important if

she’s correct.

If there’s some

doubt about

the correct approach being taken

. . . then we wanted to assist her.”

The board’s questions will

be combined with others from

QUESTIONS: The Banks Peninsula Community Board is seeking information on LPC’s plan

to minimise the impact of pile driving on dolphins.

the city council. They will be

sent this week through the

city council’s investment arm,

Christchurch City Holdings Ltd,

which owns the port, said a city

council spokeswoman.

The spokeswoman would

not say what the city council’s

additional questions will be.

Ms Robinson said she did not

believe LPC was doing enough

to prevent the negative effects of

pile driving.

“When they do pile driving,

it makes a noise into the water.

That is what concerns us

regarding the dolphins’ hearing,”

she said.

LPC chief executive Peter

Davie said the welfare of Hector’s

dolphins was a priority during

construction of the new berth.

Marine pile driving is expected

to start next month, while some

land-based piling started earlier

this year. Mr Davie said work

needed to begin soon in the

water to have the berth ready for

the 2020/21 cruise season.

Most piles will be installed

between March and December

next year.

He said the size of the piles

for the berth was smaller than

initially planned to mitigate the

effects of the noise on dolphins.

“Modelling . . . shows

underwater sound energy per

pile will be 100 times less,” Mr

Davie said.

However, Ms Robinson did

not agree, saying the modelling

would not provide an accurate

measure of the sound generated.

Mr Davie said LPC had

undertaken recent noise

measurements, but the data was

“still being processed.”

Mrs Robinson said using screw

piling would generate “barely

any noise” if it was used instead.

Mr Davie said screw piling

would not be strong enough to

“create a seismically resilient

wharf” which could berth the

large cruise liners.

Otago University marine

science department head,

professor Stephen Dawson,

had conducted a study of earlier

pile-driving operations in

Lyttelton Harbour between 2014

and 2015.Prof Dawson’s team

positioned instruments around

the harbour which were attuned

to the frequency of the Hector’s

dolphins’ echolocation.

He said the instruments

recorded fewer dolphins during

pile driving. “It definitely denies

habitat. That is a fact.”

He said the underwater sound

of those piles being driven in was

at a similar level to a gunshot.

That could cause deafness

and change the behaviour of the

dolphins. Prof Dawson said pile

driving could see a substantial

decrease in dolphin numbers in

the harbour, a key habitat for the

species.

Tinder for

volunteers

comes to city

• By Julia Evans

A NEW app described as Tinder

for volunteers has been launched

in Christchruch.

Collaborate is an app that

matches potential volunteers

with volunteering jobs. Users

log-in at letscollaborate.co.nz

then select their skills and

interests before swiping through

the opportunities.

Management consultant

Alexandra Nott and lawyer

Camille Wrightson have brought

the national app to Christchurch.

“We’ve been so blown away

by the calibre and range of the

organisations we’ve talked to so

far,” said Ms Nott.

Christchurch listings

include Tiptree Cottage Trust,

Christchurch Youth Council,

Supporting Families In Mental

Illness Canterbury, Big Brothers

Big Sisters, Māia Health

Foundation, Laura Ferguson

Trust and the Breast Cancer

Foundation.

There are also nation-wide

listings. Christchurch is the

fourth region to get the app,

following Wellington, Nelson

and Hamilton.

Art work’s hefty cleaning bill

• By Julia Evans

A SCULPTURE of stairs leading

to nowhere at the Botanic

Gardens’ information centre lake

could become a permanent part

of the city’s public art collection.

But ratepayers will have to

keep forking out $700 a month

to clean it.

The work, Diminish and

Ascend by Auckland artist

David McCracken, was installed

temporarily in the lake in 2016

as part of the SCAPE Public Art

season.

Today city councillors are set

to discuss recommendations to

make the sculpture permanent.

“Maintenance is currently

being undertaken and paid for

out of the city council artworks

budget at the expense of

maintenance of other art works.

It is currently costing $700-$760

per month to maintain,” a staff

report said.

As the stairs are in the middle

of the lake, gaining access and

cleaning off the duck excrement

several times a week means the

maintenance costs are high.

Since it was installed, more

than $11,000 has been spent on

its upkeep.

The location also protects the

artwork from vandalism and

may have its lease extended in Latimer Square.

people climbing it, the report

said.

The city council is contributing

$50,000 of the $192,000 needed

to purchase and install the work.

The rest of the funding has come

from sponsorship.

City councillors will also

decide whether or not to extend

the lease of another public

art work – Spire in Latimer

Square – until the end of next

year. Christchurch artist Neil

Dawson’s work has been in the

square since 2014, when he selffunded

the work and installed

it himself, but his lease has run

out.

“Mr Dawson is looking to

relocate the Spire to a permanent

location and would appreciate

if the city council would permit

him to retain the sculpture at

this location until the end of

2019. He has indicated that if

a permanent location is found

earlier he would remove it,” the

report said.

The work is based on the

Christ Church Cathedral,

to reflect its loss during the

Timeball tower reopening

• By Matt Salmons

SEVEN YEARS after

being almost completely

destroyed, Lyttelton’s

restored Timeball tower

will officially

reopen to the

public next Friday.

After sustaining

damage in the

February 22,

2011, earthquake,

the semideconstructed

station was

then damaged

beyond repair during an

aftershock later that year.

Only the tower section

Sheila

Watson

of the 1876-built structure

could be restored. The $3

million project started

in July last year. Heritage

New Zealand director

southern region Sheila

Watson said the

restoration of the

tower and flagpole

was finished in

June, but the area

remained closed

as landscaping was

finished.

“Much of the

work was weather

such as aspects of the

stonemasonry and

rendering work. The result

soon be able to formally

reopen the site,” Ms

Watson said.

After an opening

ceremony, people will be

able to visit the site during

daylight hours, while at

night the tower will be lit

up. Flag displays will also

feature during the year.

“As well as a great picnic

spot, or simply to go an

enjoy views of the harbour,

it captures the history and

heritage of the site through

what has been returned

and interpretation panels,”

Ms Watson said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Plan to house growing population

Greater Christchurch’s

population growth

over the next 30 years

is being planned for.

But how development

is split between

Christchurch, Selwyn

and Waimakariri

has changed since

the earthquakes.

Julia Evans reports

THE POPULATION of

Christchurch, Selwyn and

Waimakariri is expected to

increase by 150,000 over the

next 30 years, so plans are being

put in place to cater for growing

housing and business demands.

But Christchurch could get a

smaller percentage of housing

development than initially

forecast.

The updated draft Greater

Christchurch Settlement Pattern

will go out

for public

consultation

from

November

1-30 after

being

approved by

the greater

Christchurch

Rita Dionisio

partnership

committee.

The update

includes a focus on how urban

areas accommodate growth and

how infrastructure planning

supports development.

“Sixty five per cent of greater

Christchurch’s housing growth

through to 2048 should be

supported in Christchurch city,

with the remaining 20 per cent

in Selwyn and 15 per cent in

Waimakariri,” the report said.

“This settlement pattern

approach features a slightly

lower share of growth in the city

than envisaged by the urban

development strategy with the

higher share in the districts a

CENTRAL: Greater Christchurch is expected to grow by 150,000 in the next 30 years and

more housing is needed.

reflection of the strong housing

demand that has characterised

these areas.”

It comes after the 2007 urban

development strategy forecasted

71 per cent of growth would be in

the city, while the remaining 29

per cent would be split between

Selwyn and Waimakariri.

However, that was before

the two districts flourished as

residents moved out of the city

after the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

Canterbury University urban

planning researcher Rita

Dionisio said to plan for an

environmentally-friendly future,

Christchurch’s development

needs to be intensified.

“Urban intensification isn’t new

in Europe, but I think it is new

in Christchurch. We should start

looking at inner suburbs like St

Albans, Merivale and Sydenham

that could help the city intensify,”

she said.

Dr Dionisio said it would

also help develop a sense of

community.

“We should be going to the

urban development strategy prior

to the quakes, which unsettled

a lot of things. The Government

needed to solve housing problems

quickly and developing those

greenfields was an easy solution,”

she said.

However, the developments

in places, such as Rolleston and

Rangiora, need to slow down

now. “It will perpetuate the cycle

of independence, but also take

away a lot of green space which

we need.”

The pattern settlement update

said Canterbury is the fastest

growing region in New Zealand

outside Auckland.

“More population growth is

projected in greater Christchurch

over the next 30 years than

other high-growth cities such as

Hamilton, Tauranga, Wellington

and Queenstown.”

It said that translates to an

extra 86,600 houses being built

in greater Christchurch over the

next 30 years.

That includes 65 per cent

in Christchurch, 20 per cent

in Selwyn and 15 per cent in

Waimakariri, although the report

said the targets would need to be

revisited every three years.

The report also revealed there

are questions around whether

there is enough development

capacity in Selwyn and

Waimakariri to meet the demand

in the long term.

“Capacity in Selwyn and

Waimakariri may not be

sufficient to meet demand over

the medium term, while the

significant capacity in the city is

expected to be sufficient over the

next 30 years.”

The projected shortfalls are

7575 developments in Selwyn

and 9170 in Waimakariri.

“Our plan seeks to ensure

that sufficient housing capacity

is provided in both Selwyn

and Waimakariri to enable

growth in district towns, while

also transitioning to more

growth being provided through

redevelopment in the city over

the longer term.”

It proposed new greenfield

housing areas should be released

in Rolleston, Rangiora and

Kaiapoi to help address the short

falls.

It comes after The Star

revealed in March the Housing

and Business Development

Capacity Assessment report had

been developed as part of the

settlement pattern review.

It is a collaboration between

the city council, Selwyn and

Waimakariri district councils,

Environment Canterbury,

Canterbury District Health

Board, Regenerate Christchurch

and the Department of the

Prime Minister and Cabinet.

However, the settlement pattern

review said the update focuses

on a “responsive” approach to

planning.

Said the review: “How we live

today will be quite different to 30

years from now, so we need to be

responsive to these changes.”

The number of households

with people over 65-years-old is

projected to grow from 24 per

cent to 35 per cent and single

person households are set to

increase by 50 per cent.

It said the type of housing

needed will shift to smaller

homes to cater for the ageing

population and couples, with

more multi-unit dwellings.

“While standalone homes on

large sections will continue to

make an important contribution

towards meeting future

housing demand, the shifting

demographic and household

profile in greater Christchurch

means a growing share of

demand is expected to be met by

smaller housing types.”

That includes townhouses

and apartments, with a lot of

that growth concentrated in the

city through the private rental

market.

“Seventy one per cent of

housing demand in the city will

be met by private rentals.”

The review also said social and

affordable housing will become

an “increasingly critical issue” for

the greater Christchurch market.

But it said the post-earthquake

market will not change over

night. “The market and people’s

preferences needing time to

respond to the new opportunities

being created by regeneration

and place-making initiatives

in the central city, suburban

centres and surrounding

local neighbourhoods in

Christchurch.”’

Opinion

Fitting time to reopen chapel

BECA Heritage Week

has caused us to reflect

on some significant

anniversaries this year.

They included 125 years

of universal suffrage,

the centenary of the end

of World War 1 and the

influenza pandemic that

followed.

On Saturday the

governor-general is

coming to the city to

reopen New Zealand’s

first hospital chapel, the

Nurses’ Memorial Chapel,

which can be found on the

grounds of Christchurch

Hospital.

Given the chapel was

erected as a memorial

to three nurses from

Christchurch Hospital who

died during WW1 when

the troopship (Marquette)

they were on was

torpedoed in 1915, and to

two nurses who died in the

1918 influenza epidemic,

it is particularly poignant

that it will be reopened at

the weekend.

As far as can be

ascertained, this is the

only purpose-built hospital

chapel of its kind in the

world commemorating, as

it does, nurses who died in

WW1.

It is New Zealand’s

only memorial chapel

to women who died

in any war or the 1918

influenza epidemic, and is

a repository of memorials

to local, national and

internationally-known

medical men and women.

The wonderful thing

about restoring these

HERITAGE: The

governor-general is set

to reopen New Zealand’s

first hospital chapel, the

Nurses’ Memorial Chapel,

on Saturday.

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

heritage buildings is

that not only do we

preserve them for future

generations, they’re also

wonderful places to attract

visitors. This will be an

important element of our

local heritage trail and its

story will live on.

It has survived against

the odds, with proposals

by previous hospital

boards to demolish it

in the 1970s and 1980s

and, of course, the major

earthquakes of 2010 and

2011.

Congratulations

to everyone who has

contributed to such a

beautiful restoration.

Have you always lived in Christchurch?

I actually grew up 10km north of

Invercargill, in a small rural town called

Makarewa. My dad is from up north, he’s

part Maori from the Tainui iwi, which

makes me part Maori. My mum’s from

Invercargill. My grandmother was actually

the first woman at the sight of the Homer

Tunnel in Fiordland National Park. It’s a

fascinating story, there have been books

written about it. My grandmother, with

three young, young

children basically in

a frontier-type spirt

in every sense of the

word, raised my older

aunts and uncles in

the wild of Fiordland

as New Zealand was

tunnelling through

this big piece of rock

as we were tunnelling

through to get to

Milford Sound. I

went to the ‘top 20’

in New Zealand for

swimming, but I

wasn’t a rugby player,

which is unusual for

down there. Then

I went to Otago

University for four

years to get a nutrition

degree. I studied a

variety of things.

If I could sum up a

description of me, it

would be a jack of all trades but a master

of none.

You seem to have had a number of jobs

over the years?

When I was 11-years-old, I had my first

job on a poultry farm collecting eggs from

where chickens had laid them and putting

them on trays. My mother also worked

there, so I was taking cash and cheques

with mum’s supervision from about eightyears-old.

But I had my own IRD number

from when I was 11, working weekends

and school holidays, which is how I bought

my first computer, a Commodore VIC-20.

I spent $500 on something that has about

four pixels. We moved to Invercargill and

when I was at Southland Boys’ High, I

had a job in a video game parlour, a place

called Wizards, giving out the coins. That

was when I was 15 or 16. After that, I had

the odd job down in Bluff

on the wharf just being

a labourer. The hardest

day’s work of my life was

unloading a deep sea

trawler with frozen fish.

We were in a chain tossing

25kg boxes to each other.

It was -28 deg C, so as

soon as you descended the

ladder, your snot would

freeze. At uni, I worked

quite a bit when I was

studying at the student

union in the bar. I was a

doorman, and the smallest

guy there, but I could

always talk to people.

After I graduated, I went

back down to Invercargill

for a two-week holiday

and stayed nine months.

I got a job at the Grand

Hotel, but quickly realised

Invercargill wasn’t big

enough for me. I had my

nutrition degree but I needed to learn

how to cook. So I went to the polytech in

Dunedin and then came to Christchurch.

I got a job at the Quality Hotel doing

breakfasts in 1996-ish. I was doing my

second year of study at Christchurch

polytech and an English butler came

recruiting for a hotel in the British Village

in Japan.

Aaron Campbell

politics and fixing Fiats

I went over to Japan on a

working holiday visa and that’s

how I met my wife, Kazumi, she

was in the Tokyo sales office.

How long were you in Japan?

I spent a year in Japan. After

working in the village, I spent

a month in Kyoto, living in the

middle of summer in an un-airconditioned

flat and renting a

bicycle. Then I travelled down

to Hiroshima, which is such an

emotional place. I kept on going

down western Japan on the local

trains, down to Nagasaki. I went

back to Tokyo for the last three

months, teaching conversational

English with no qualification.

I also had a part-time job at an

after-school programme with

kindergarten age kids. Then

I spent two years in London

on a working visa again. I was

temping as a chef. You might

spend a day, five days or three

months in a place. It was all about

getting yourself up to speed and

surviving. My girlfriend, now

wife, came with me. She was

working at a receptionist at a

swanky hotel in Knightsbridge.

Six months before we left, we

took two weeks holiday and did

a car trip around the United

Kingdom. We went to the spot

where the Campbells famously

massacred the MacDonalds at

Glencoe, Scotland. On the way

back to New Zealand, we stopped

in Japan and stayed for five years.

The thing that always nagged me

as a chef, I had that idea of ‘am

I good enough for those fancy

hotels’. I had an interview and got

a job at the Westin Hotel, a fivestar

hotel in Tokyo. First year was

in the banqueting area, cooking

and preparing food for 27

weddings over a weekend. There

was a year in the preparation

kitchen for the buffet. The final

year I spent as a teppanyaki chef

at a Michelin star level, which

is pretty cool for a foreigner. I

did a fine-dining restaurant as

well, cooked for former United

States Vice-President Al Gore.

I was the unofficial assistant to

the executive chef. He was as

good as Gordon Ramsay, but

didn’t have that media profile. At

the end of one night, he said to

me ‘I thought all the best chefs

came from Europe, but tonight I

realise that’s not the case’. I was

reading about business when I

was in Japan, I was looking to

buy a business back here in New

Zealand. There was a bed and

breakfast on Bealey Ave that we

looked to buy, we looked to buy a

catering business in a homestead.

When did you come back to

New Zealand?

We came back to Christchurch

in 2006. I did a few temp jobs in

rest homes, then I got a job at a

restaurant for a short period of

time. One lunch-time, I saw an

ad in the paper for a caterer at the

PASSION: Aaron Campbell’s 1969 Fiat bambina is one of his hobbies outside of being on the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board.

Workingmen’s Club in Kaiapoi.

We put a business case together

and basically got the spot. We

took over at the end of January

2007, which was a mad scramble.

After another two years I was

waiting for yet a bigger challenge.

That challenge being a very

big pavlova?

Yes, so I came up with the

idea of doing the world’s largest

pavlova. It was a problem-solving

task. How do you get a 50m 2

pavlova into the Christ Church

Cathedral with the Bledisloe

Cup in the middle? It took a

lot of planning and help and

support. But it was great. Every

dollar that was donated went

to the Children’s Cancer Trust.

The pavlova was part of a trilogy.

I made a 15kg replica of the

Cathedral out of gingerbread and

the follow up to that was making

rose window out of rice bubbles

and icing sugar.

So how did these jobs lead to

local body politics?

We did six years in Kaiapoi and

I got interested in photography

again. In 2012, I bought a digital

camera and got really involved

in making good photos. I did

look again to polytech to do

a photography course, but it

didn’t suit my learning style. We

worked hard enough so I gave

myself six months to work out a

business model for photography.

In three years, I was busier

than I’d ever imagined, but I

started losing my passion for

photography, so I had to pull

back. I needed something else,

which is where Lianne Dalziel

came along. I took Deon Swiggs’

campaign photo and he asked

Lianne’s opinion of it and

that’s how we started chatting.

Having never been in a political

campaign, looking back on

helping someone who had 23

years of experience and who was

going up for mayor, I was cheeky.

I wanted to give it my best shot

and help her, then being able to

do that was great. I lost 10kg over

that period, there was a lot of

work. I was delivering flyers over

the Harewood Ward for myself

just to get eyes on the street and

see how people were living. I just

wanted to get a detailed look at

the community. I finished the

campaign and Garry Moore,

who was chairman of Lianne’s

campaign, said what are you

doing now? He invited me to

meet Duncan Webb and manage

his campaign.

So you went from managing

Lianne Dalziel’s campaign

to Christchurch Central MP

Duncan Webb’s?

I said I was happy to meet him,

but I wanted to make sure we got

along. I was really impressed,

genuinely after I met him. We

got along great and I could see

that he was a good person. It

was a privilege to go into the

co-management role of that

campaign. My role was around

the mechanics of the campaign,

scheduling stuff and looking at it

from a social media perspective.

It took a step back from a party

perspective and just wanted to

make sure people could relate to

Duncan and what he is about.

I think the campaign was quite

successful, it was a hell of a result.

How did you get onto the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board?

I’m an accidental part-time

politician. It was by chance,

two days before the close of

nominations for the Harewood

Ward, no one was running. I

asked my wife and I asked Lianne

and they said go for it. It’s as

simple as that. It cost $200 to

register and put out some flyers.

What do you do on a day off?

I kind of don’t have any in a

way. That’s the sad part about

me. Photography was always

a passion and that’s now a

business. I’d say the community

board is my hobby but I get paid

for it. I kind of like being busy, I

am a workaholic. The downside

of being a small business owner is

you don’t have much of a chance

to have a holiday. We often go

back to see Kazumi’s parents in

Japan, her dad is 92 now. The

Fiat bambina is probably my

hobby, I’m not a petrol head, but

I love it. My brother’s got an old

Holden and threw a V8 into it

so I was thinking about getting

something myself. I just realised

how much personality classic cars

have got. A 1969 Fiat bambina, an

original, blue outside with a red

interior with a 500cc motor has

a lot of personality. I’m getting a

trailer made for it out of the front

and back of a trashed bambina, a

wee mini trailer.

Tips to smarten outdoors before Xmas

WITH THE warmer weather

comes the ever knowing

awareness and understanding

that Christmas is really not that

far away. Turn the corner and we

are almost there.

Wise are those who plan and

work in advance.

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.

You can always let the cobwebs

inside take care of themselves, at

least they catch flies.

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

satisfying for the pocket.

6: Make your garden as

maintenance-free as possible.

Consider alternatives to bark

and mulch using non-organic

product such as decorative

stone and using a quality nonwoven

weed matt for weed control.

7: Consider painting or

staining timber fences,

wooden structures. This

Food is easy to grow Look after your mower

FOR MANY years, Labour

Weekend has been the traditional

time for planting out a full

range of summer vegetables and

flowers.

Hopefully, you have planned

ahead and prepared your soil

ready for planting. If not, then

add in plenty of compost or

garden mix and combine well

with your existing soil before you

plant out.

There is something special

about growing your own vegetables

– watching them grow from

seed/seedling to a scrumptious

crop through your own tender

loving care might be why they

taste better.

No matter how big or small the

space available; you can successfully

beds, raised beds or in pots

and containers.

Tasty vegetables to plant now

include beans, beetroot, carrots,

celery, corn, cucumber, onions,

peas, pumpkin, radish, potatoes,

spinach, tomatoes and zucchini,

not to mention the great range of

lettuces available.

WITH THE mowing season

upon us, it’s time to make sure

your lawn mower is as ready as

you are to tackle those lawn care

chores.

A regular, simple maintenance

programme to keep your mower

performing at its best and to extend

its useful life. Just follow this

easy checklist:

•Change the oil

Oil is the engine’s lifeblood that

removes contaminants, lubricates

parts and dissipates heat.

That’s why it’s important to make

sure the crankcase contains an

adequate supply of fresh oil.

Before changing the oil, run the

engine for several minutes until it

warms up. Then, stop the engine,

disconnect the spark plug and

drain the oil into a pan or similar

container. Refill the crankcase

with high quality detergent oil

that has a SG/CD classification

on the label. Take the used oil to a

local recycling center. It’s environmentally

unfriendly-and illegalto

dump used motor oil on the

ground or into a storm drain.

•Check the air filter

Your air-cooled engine needs

a constant supply of clean air.

If your mower engine takes a

disposable paper filter, simply

replace it with a new filter. If the

engine requires a foam-type filter,

remove the sponge from the filter

assembly, soak it in kerosene and

squeeze it dry. Then apply a few

drops of clean oil into the sponge

and place it back in the filter assembly.

•Use fresh fuel

Petrol turns stale after about 60

days and can form gum in your

engine’s carburettor, resulting in

expensive repairs. Eliminate the

problem by routinely filling your

engine’s tank with fresh fuel. If

petrol must remain in the tank for

a prolonged period of time, add a

fuel stabiliser to keep it fresh and

to ensure a clean fuel system that

leads to easier starting.

•Sharpen the blade

Think about what a dull razor

does to your face or legs when

shaving. Similarly, a dull mower

blade can bruise, bend and damage

your lawn, making it susceptible

to disease. After disconnecting

the spark plug, examine the

blade for wear or damage. Have it

professionally sharpened at least

once annually.

•Keep things clean

While you’re checking the

blade, remove any dirt and

caked-on grass under the mower.

Squirt vegetable oil cooking

spray underneath to reduce

clipping build-up and to prevent

rust.

ADVICE

We’re about to

QUESTION move into our

new home

which means a new garden. Yay! I love

gardening and I’m looking forward to

growing all sorts. Which type of

garden is best for planting veggies/

herbs e.g raised or flat garden and

how do you layer the soil (e.g mix the

soil with a garden mix or just soil and

then garden mix at top end?) Advice

on best type of soil and garden mix to

use will be much appreciated.

Today’s winning question came from Shonam Kumar. Congratulations!

Establishing a new veggie garden is always an exciting prospect! For ease of access

ANSWER when planting, caring and harvesting, a raised vegetable garden is ideal. Raise the soil

level by using railway sleepers or bricks etc to about 300mm high and fill with Daltons

Garden Time Compost and existing soil (mixed well).

If you decide to go with something bigger like a planter box, you will need to fill it with a mixture of Daltons

Garden Time Vegetable Mix or Daltons Garden Time Planting Mix, and Daltons Garden Time Compost.

The site of your garden is critical - it needs full sun during the growing season, shelter from cold, strong

southerlies and to be in a well-drained part of the garden.

Apply side dressings of Daltons Garden Time Vegetable Fertiliser throughout the growing period and add a

layer of mulch during the hot, dry summer months to improve water retention.

At the end of the season plant the area with a green manure crop e.g. mustard, which can be dug in late winter

to improve the organic content of your soil. You can also purchase Daltons Premium Garden Mix in bulk from

your local Bunnings store.

For more gardening advice and tips, check out our Growing How to Summer Vegetables guide at

You can never go wrong growing your own juicy tomatoes. Whether

you prefer heirloom, cherry, beefsteak or low acidic, there is a variety

Bringing the Mongolian

Steppes to the CBD

When families and groups are wondering

where to go for meal out, they generally don’t

think of Mongolia, but at 478 Cranford Street,

Redwood, the taste of the Steppes is right on

our, well door-step. Gengy’s is a BBQ buffet

with a huge range of options that provides

terrific value for money. Named after Genghis

Khan, the founder of the Mongol empire,

Gengy’s is inspired by the ancient tradition

of celebrating victory with a huge feast

cooked BBQ-style. Today, they offer a unique

experience as one of Christchurch’s newest,

most interactive restaurants. Customers begin

by choosing between various breads and

soups to start but the fun starts when they let

their culinary imagination run riot as they put

together their own main course.

Selecting from various marinated meats,

plus seafoods and vegetables, diners add oils,

sauces and spices – go as hot as you like or as

wide-ranging as you fancy. Their chef then

cooks everything fresh and in front of you,

leaving you to add rice or noodles. Best of all,

you can go back as often as you like to try as

many combinations as your palate desires.

With plenty of salads on their buffet, you can

be as healthy as you like, or you can hit the

self-scoop ice-cream and finish off your meal

with a sweet treat.

Costing only $33.95 for the all-you-can-eat

buffet with reductions for children, seniors

and tertiary students, Gengy’s is the place to

go to celebrate any victory; and at only $1 on

your birthday, then it is definitely the place to

go to celebrate your special day.

Visit www.gengys.co.nz to find out more or

ring them on 03 6661212.

shaking off the excess.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high

golden brown on both sides,

6-8min per side. Continue with

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

Taha Auto – cash for cars, spare

parts and great service too

Located in Sockburn, Taha Auto in

Christchurch is part of the Taha Auto group

which was established 12 years ago and has

branches in Wellington and Auckland as

well as a sister company in Sydney.

Split into divisions to met the needs of

both trade and individual customers, Taha

Auto will both pay cash-for-cars and supply

a huge variety of parts.

The Cash-for-Cars division has four

trucks on the road six days a week collecting

vehicles from right across the Canterbury

region. Wherever you are, if your car, truck

or ute is no longer driveable, the Taha

Auto team can not only collect it free of

charge, but give you a great scrap price, too.

Whether your vehicle has simply failed its

warrant or has been involved in a crash,

they will take it off your hands.

Working alongside the Cash for Cars

division, the Scrap division then takes the

vehicle apart, separating them into those

stripped and sold for scrap, those that are

dismantled for export and those selected to

keep for their local parts sales market.

Running alongside the other divisions,

the Auto Parts sales division has four staff

with over 60 years combined experience.

There is a huge range of spares for most

makes and models of cars, utes and vans,

specialising in Suzuki Swifts, Nissan Tiida,

we buy

trucKs,

cars & 4wd’s

Nissan Murano, Misty Outlander and

Triton. As well as recycling used parts, they

also import new after-market parts from

Asia, with containers scheduled to arrive

soon, and they import used parts from

their overseas supplier on a regular basis. In

fact, they send parts all over New Zealand

for the public and automotive trade sectors

daily.

They have a huge range of car lights from

$40, and if you need a used tyre or battery,

I WAS TALKING recently

to one of Canterbury’s

motorsport legends –

Trevor Crowe.

While Crowe’s career

behind the wheel needs

little explanation, it is not

widely remembered that

Trevor Crowe Motors was

once the local outlet for

Skoda. What’s more, Crowe

built a V8-powered version

of the Skoda 120L which he

rallied with some success.

If that wasn’t enough,

there was also a Crowesport

programme fitting an

after-market turbocharger

on the rear-engined 120L.

That was around 1988, and

I still relate to the fun I had

in that car.

As time has served to

prove Trevor Crowe Motors

has long since seen Subaru

as the brand which fits the

company’s image, Skoda is

now sold through the Miles

group.

It hasn’t been all plain

sailing for Skoda in New

Zealand, it’s been a hard

sell here, but that has all

changed now. Skoda is

a brand with a wealth of

models and variants, and

all of it is high quality,

realistically priced and built

to capture buyers who are

looking for practicality and

functionality in their new

car purchase.

One of the latest Skoda

models to come my way

was a newcomer to the

range – the Karoq.

The Karoq is a quasisport

utility vehicle,

which I liken more to

the traditional estate/

station wagons which still

command a huge market

share in Europe. The Karoq

seems a lot less bulky than

the mainstream SUV, at

1.6m it is lower than most,

and with its mid-size

proportions you could

almost get sucked into

thinking it is a liftback/

wagon concept.

All that aside, the Karoq

is classy. Built in the Czech

Republic by the giant

Volkswagen conglomerate,

the Karoq lands here

in three variations. There

are 1.5-litre petrol and

2-litre diesel options (both

turbocharged); the range

starts at $38,990 and ends

at $48,490 for the rangetopping

Style diesel, as

tested.

In this form, drive is

channelled to all four

wheels, the other two variants

are front-drive only.

That being the case, the

SKODA KAROQ: Crossover vehicle in two or fourwheel-drive.

Karoq Style could easily be

deemed a suitable dirt road

challenger. In traditional

Vokswagen group fashion,

the gearbox is a direct shift

automatic with seven ratios,

with paddles at the steering

wheel if the driver wishes to

take manual control of that

process.

• Price – Skoda Karoq,

$48,490

• Dimensions –

Length, 4382mm;

width, 1841mm;

height, 1603mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive,

1968cc,

110kW, 340Nm,

seven-speed DSG.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.3sec

• Fuel usage –

5.2l/100km

During my time with the

test car, I used it in normal

drive mode, but bear

in mind there are several

selectable protocols to suit

any road surface or driving

style. The mechanicals

are most definitely built

for the inevitable off-road

excursion, and I can see the

Karoq as the perfect vehicle

to tackle the ski-field access

road, and there are plenty

of accessories for the car

which would make that

journey easy.

Under the bonnet lies

the four-cylinder engine.

It is much the European

standard with strong midrange

torque (340Nm from

1750rpm to 3000rpm), and

a low point of peak power

(100kW at 3500rpm).

Together, these figures

combine to produce strong

acceleration and high top

end speed. Skoda claims a

9.3sec standstill to 100km/h

time and a flat out speed of

196km/h.

Figures aside, it is in the

day-to-day commute that

you really appreciate the

quality of this engine, it gets

about its business strongly,

yet is unflustered and quiet.

It responds with vibrancy

and is instant in its delivery,

a lot of that is to do with

the quick shifting gearbox

and perfect matching

between the engine and

transmission ratios.

The Karoq is also a

solid highway cruiser, it is

whisper quiet at speed, and

provides all occupants with

a comfortable ride.

The suspension is a fully

independent front-strut/

rear multiple link system

which has spring and

damper rates only moderately

firmed.

While the Karoq can be

seen as a purposeful allrounder,

one of its greatest

claims to fame is that of

its fuel consumption, or

should I say, lack of consumption.

That’s the beauty of the

European diesel; with

a wealth of experience

and high fuel costs in the

Northern Hemisphere, the

engines which come out

of the VW group’s factories

are high on efficiency

and low on emissions.

Skoda claim a 5.2-litre per

100km (54mpg) combined

cycle average for the 2-litre

diesel.

The fuel usage readout

reinforced that during my

time in the test car. It was

constantly showing around

6.9l/100km (41mpg) with

an instantaneous figure

of 4.2l/100km (68mpg) at

the legal limit, the engine

turning over leisurely at just

1450rpm.

It’s time to abandon all

of those old Skoda jokes.

The brand has gone from

strength to strength to the

point today where it must

be considered an equal to

any other European car.

I particularly like the

product, and I particularly

like the Karoq. It has

definite appeal, if I had a

young family and wanted

something just that little

bit different to mainstream

SUVS, then it would suit.

Magic Man set for

the ride of his life

local

rugby

Proudly

brought to

you by

Tower JuncTion

• By Gordon Findlater

JUST A couple of years ago

Chris ‘Magic Man’ Johnson

wouldn’t have rated his chances

of riding a contender in the Cox

Plate. But on Saturday, it will

become a reality.

The 54-year-old is set for one

of his biggest paydays when

he looks to guide the Michael

and Matthew Pitman-trained

Savvy Coup to a win against

Australian wonder horse Winx

in Australasia’s premier weightfor-age

race at Moonee Valley.

A ride of this magnitude is

something Johnson himself

thought would have been off the

cards just a few years ago. The

likeable jockey’s career has had

as many lows as highs, which led

to him to give up riding between

1999 and 2006.

“A couple of years ago, you

wouldn’t have thought I’d be on

a good enough horse to compete

in the Cox Plate,” said Johnson.

Last year Johnson claimed a

second New Zealand jockeys’

premiership, more than 20 years

after his first in 1995/96.

“I just . . . worked a bit harder

at it. I did a lot more travelling

to win the premiership. I’m still

enjoying my riding. Age is only

a number and the better horses

make your job easier.”

“I think I’ve got a bit older and

settled down from my younger

days,” he said.

“I guess you could say I behave

a bit more responsibly.”

When Johnson guided Savvy

Coup to victory in the 2040m

Livamol Classic at Hastings

earlier this month, he became

the early favourite to ride her at

the Cox Plate. He then received

confirmation from the Pitman

recently

family last week.

“I appreciate all the support

I’ve had from owners and

trainers through good and bad.

Luckily, they’ve kept supporting

me which has kept me riding.”

Johnson has rode in the

Melbourne Cup three times,

including a third place finish

on Mercator in 1993, which he

considers a career highlight,

along with his victory aboard

Sea Swift in the 1988 Auckland

Cup. However, an upset against

Winx in Saturday’s Cox Plate

could easily eclipse those

moments.

It could also provide Johnson

his biggest payday yet with

prize-money in this year’s race

increasing to A$5 million from

A$3 million last year.

Savvy Coup – which is at $31

to win – has drawn barrier five

for the eight horse race, inside

Winx in barrier six which is the

heavy favourite at $1.20 in her

great bevvies

bid to win a 29th consecutive

victory, and four consecutive

Cox Plates. “She’ll have to be at

her best but she tries hard every

time so she will be competitive.”

Michael and Matthew Pitman

are set to fly to Melbourne

tomorrow morning ahead of the

race. Michael is still currently in

hospital following an operation

for bowl cancer. However, he

was due to be discharged today

and was confident of being

healthy enough to make the trip.

BIG DANCE: Josh McKay makes a break during

Canterbury’s loss to Auckland last month.

Fourth straight

title on the cards

• By Gordon Findlater

CONTINUING THE dynasty

will be the objective when

Canterbury travels to Auckland

in an attempt to claim their

fourth straight provincial title

on Saturday.

Canterbury were defeated by

Auckland 29-34 last month in

week five of the competition

at Christchurch Stadium. The

match was best remembered

for Canterbury conceding three

tries on the back of intercepts

from Auckland.

“You obviously still feel the

hurt when you don’t quite perform

as well as you could have,”

said Canterbury assistant coach

Nathan Mauger.

“We’ve grown a lot over the

course of the season and I think

we’re in a lot better space now

than we were back then.”

If Canterbury can win another

title, it will be their 10th in 11

years. Mauger admitted the run

into Saturday’s final at Eden

Park has come with a touch of

nostalgia for the coaching team.

They’re all former Canterbury

players themselves and know the

feelings that come with a game

of this magnitude.

“You naturally think

back to when you

ourselves in this position.”

The squad named for the final

will have a new look from the

team that defeated Tasman 12

months ago, featuring the likes

of Rob Thompson and Tim

Bateman.

The guys that have come

in have been highly-coachable

individuals and I think because

of that they’ve adjusted really

quickly to the style of rugby

we like to play in Canterbury.

I think the fact we’ve qualified

for yet another final is a result of

that,” said Mauger.

Outside back Josh McKay,

who will look to feature in his

second straight final, is hopeful

of adding another title to the

Canterbury tally.

“It’s hard to not recognise

but it’s going to be a new group

every year trying to achieve

new things and add to the

Canterbury dynasty,” said

McKay.

Canty veteran aims for 100 wins

Canterbury United can

rack up their 100th

national league regular

season win on Sunday

when they play Hawke’s

Bay United. If they achieve

the milestone their will

be one player still in the

squad from their first

league victory 14 years

ago. Gordon Findlater

reports

DAN TERRIS has been part

of every Canterbury United

campaign since the national

league was reformed in 2004.

He was part of the team’s first

victory in a squad that featured

the likes of All Whites Ben

Sigmund and Jeremy Brockie.

After moving to Nelson 14

year ago to spend six months

visiting his uncle, playing some

football for Nelson Suburbs and

travelling the country, there

was no reason to suggest the

now 37-year-old would go on to

play more than 160 games for

Canterbury – more than any

other player – including many as

captain.

After helping Nelson Suburbs

to the Mainland Premier League

title in 2004, Terris was asked to

come to Christchurch for Canterbury’s

national league season.

“I only expected to be here

for six months to have a look

around,” said Terris.

“I was asked to come down to

Canterbury and I thought it was

a good opportunity. It was more

just enjoy the season and see

what happens, but I’ve been here

ever since.”

“I moved in with Ben Sigmund

at the time for a couple of

months before I got myself on

my feet.”

Terris grew up in London and

as a teenager was part of West

Ham United’s youth set up for

STALWART: Dan Terris helped Canterbury United to their

first league win in 2004 and will look to bring up 100 wins

four years at the same time as

the likes of John Terry, Joe Cole,

Paul Konchesky and Bobby

Zamora.

He then joined Southend

United in Essex where he was

coached by Peter Taylor, who

also managed England for a

short period in 2000. However,

Terris ran into cartilage issues

with his knees, which caused

him to miss two years of football.

“I had so long out of the

game, I didn’t really think I

could make it anymore.”

After studying marketing at

university, Terris returned to

play non-league football in England

before he moved to New

Zealand.

There have been a number

of highlights for Canterbury

United and Terris over the

years, including two grand-final

appearances in 2006 and 2010.

Canterbury’s second season in

the league is one of many fond

memories for Terris.

“We ended up making the

final that year, where we lost

to Auckland City on penalties.

There was a couple of games in

that season that really put us on

the map. We went to Auckland

and beat Auckland City 3-2, and

they were the dominating team

in the competition. We sort of

opened the eyes to a lot of teams

in the league at that stage to

suggest we were someone to be

reckoned with.”

From being one of the first

names on the team sheet, to

having an important squad

role in recent years, Terris has

remained competitive right

through his mid and late-30s.

“I’m still enthusiastic about

the game and love playing it

enough to make me want to go

through the pain barrier a little

bit. It would be good to win

something with Canterbury.”

“I just enjoy being part of

the team and representing the

region.”

Canterbury are currently on

their best unbeaten run in the

league with eight consecutive

victories. They began this

season’s campaign with a 1-0

win over Southern United at

the weekend courtesy of a 36thminute

goal from wing-back

Sean Liddicoat.

Clapham has joined Team

Wellington for the national

Clapham, who has scored a

record 61 goals for Canterbury,

was announced as a new signing

for Team Wellington yesterday.

Last year Clapham withdrew

from the Canterbury squad, citing

personal reasons. In 2016-2017, he

was the second equal leading goalscorer

in the national league with

12 strikes. The former All White

is part of a rare group to play 100

games for Canterbury.

Dunn to

miss NZ

Trotting Cup

• By Gordon Findlater

THE COUNTRY’S premier

harness driver, Dexter Dunn,

is set to miss the New Zealand

Trotting Cup next month, instead

opting to compete in the United

States’ Breeders Crown at the

weekend.

The Star has learnt that Dunn

will not be returning to New

Zealand as early as previously

planned, but will instead continue

his racing in the US.

The Breeders Crown will have

12 championship races over one

night and US$6.4 million in

purses. Since making the move

to the US in August, Dunn has

driven 34 winners from 198 starts

with a UDRS of .296 racing in

Philadelphia.

Dunn led the drivers’

premiership in wins from 2008

to 2017. He already ranks fifth in

New Zealand history with 2225

wins.

Will the The Rock enter the ring for Pacific rugby?

IT SEEMS the conversation has

arisen again. Yes, we’re talking

about the possible expansion of

a Super Rugby franchise into the

Pacific Islands.

The conversation isn’t a new

one. It’s been going on for well

over a decade, but is there hope it

can amount to something more

than a pipe dream this time

round?

The latest push for a team in

the Pacific Islands is being led

by Auckland-based business

consultant Simon Anderson.

He has kicked off a social media

campaign aimed at getting

thousands of rugby fans to tag

WWE and movie superstar

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson on

social media to get him to look

at a proposal video which argues

the case for a team.

Could the favourite wrestler

from my childhood really be the

man to save Super Rugby from

reaching rock bottom?

Since Super Rugby last stood

as a legitimate competition

contested between 12 teams,

we’ve seen its expansion into

Melbourne – a city where the

NRL’s greatest franchise in the

past two decades struggles to

see the light of day in a market

dominated by the AFL.

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

A team in Perth has come

and gone and, in more recent

times, it’s even expanded into

Japan with the Sunwolves and

Argentina with the Jaguares.

When all of these expansions

were made, we were fed the

same message about how it

would raise the profile of the

game internationally. However,

all we’ve seen since is a dilution

of quality in the competition

outside New Zealand and a lopsided

balance of power through

the conference system, which

rewards mediocrity for weaker

South African and Australian

teams.

Surely a Pacific Island team

would be a marketing dream

for Super Rugby?

The Tonga effect on

international rugby

league is all you need to

see to realise a Pacific

Island team in Super

Rugby would mean

record crowds for

regular season home

games for all of the

current New Zealand

franchises, as well as the

representing NZ again

RACE DAY: Waimate 50 shootout winner Josh Mitchell

Mitchell breaks track

record at Waimate 50

CHRISTCHURCH driver

Josh Mitchell became a recordbreaker

when he won the annual

Waimate 50 on Sunday.

Mitchell’s time of 1min 54.3sec

in a Subaru WRX saw him not

only claim the title, but break a

track record.

His record wasn’t the only one

set over the weekend. A record

14 cars hit the wall at the event,

keeping the Waimate Volunteer

Fire Brigade busy all day.

Waimate 50 event director

Rob Aikman said he was “pretty

stoked on the weekend” as more

than 8000 spectators came out to

watch the only street race in New

Zealand.

“That’s what people come here

for – to have a good time, to soak

up the atmosphere,” Mr Aikman

said.

“It’s something different, it’s

something special – it’s the only

street circuit built in the country

at the moment.”

Daniel Liemburg, of Timaru,

was second in a Nissan 370Z

with a time of 1min 54.9sec. Ben

Terry, of Waimate, clocked 1min

55.8sec in his final lap of the day

in a Mitsubishi EVO to claim

third. In spite of 13 crashes on

the first day of the street race,

there was only one on Sunday

after drivers settled into the race.

They get a bit excited getting

on a special circuit, you know,

and it’s unforgiving. If you make

an error, you’re into a wall,” Mr

Aikman said.

Sixty-five drivers competed in

the Street Attack for a chance to

qualify for the one-lap, fastesttime-takes-all,

shootout final.

The historic invitational drew

20 drivers. Sixteen drift teams

from the North and South Islands

also competed.

GARY LAWSON is hopeful a

change in tune from Bowls New

Zealand can see him represent

his country once again after

being overlooked for this year’s

Commonwealth Games.

Lawson is currently lending

his considerable experience to

the new Bowls3Five competition

as part of Sky Sport’s commentary

team. He then plans to reset

his sights on an international

recall.

The 13-time national champion

promptly retired after being

overlooked for this year’s Commonwealth

Games, but returned

to the greens last month to help

Eastbourne win the prestigious

Australian club five-a-side on

the Gold Coast.

“I had a couple of yarns and

spoke to [Bowls New Zealand

chief executive] Mark Cameron

and I decided it’d be silly [to

retire],” said Lawson.

“I’ve been playing pretty good,

probably the best I’ve played

since we won the world champs

in 2008.”

Lawson frequently clashed

with the previous Bowls NZ

administration and he has not

represented the Blackjacks since

2009, when the men’s four,

which he skipped, deliberately

lost an end during the Asia-

Pacific tournament.

But he is playing in the North

East Valley invitation singles

in Dunedin this week and has

committed to lining up in the

nationals, with the aim of representing

New Zealand again.

“I’d love to. That’s one of the

reasons I’ve come back to play,”

said Lawson.

“I still think there’s unfinished

business there for me . . . I

wouldn’t make myself available

if I didn’t think I was good

enough for the team or able to

NEW CHALLENGE: Gary Lawson is having a crack at

being a TV commentator before returning to bowls to

push his case for national selection.

add some value to it.

“And I’d really like to be part

of helping some of the young

guys … get to the next level.”

Current Blackjack Shannon

McIlroy believes Lawson deserves

a recall and feels he would

make their team stronger.

The guy has won more New

Zealand titles than anyone and

he keeps winning New Zealand

titles so on a performance basis

he definitely should be in the top

five,” said McIlroy.

For now though Lawson’s

attention will be on providing

expert calls for Bowls3Five

which runs on Tuesday and

Wednesday evenings through to

November 28.

“My job is to try and educate

the people watching … and

hopefully add a little bit of expertise,”

said Lawson.

The double world champion

has already provided a helping

hand to former All Black Alex

Wyllie, who is playing in the

Bowls3Five competition for the

Woodend Jets.

“I’ve been doing a bit of

training with him and he’s

doing all right and I think

people will really enjoy watching

him play,” said Lawson.

“He’s a fantastic bloke and

not the big gruff, tough guy that

everyone thinks he is.

“He’s a gentle giant, a teddy

bear.”

Bishopdale, Elmwood players claim NZ junior titles

SUCCESS: Reece Falck and

Abby Mason were 16 and

under champions at the

New Zealand junior masters

finals.

• By Gordon Findlater

REECE FALCK and Abby

Mason will both head into the

latest round of the premier

interclub tennis competition on

a high after lifting national titles

on Labour Day.

The Christchurch pair both

won their 16 and under singles

titles at the New Zealand junior

masters finals in Hamilton. The

tournament is contested between

the top eight boys and girls players

from 12 and under through

to 16 and under. The rankings

are decided on masters points

earned throughout the year.

Falck – who won the national

under-14 boys title last year –

defeated top seed Anton Shepp

from Hamilton in a thrilling

final that was decided by a third

set tie-breaker which Falck won

7-5 to complete a 6-4, 5-7, 7-6 (5)

victory.

The 16-year-old went undefeated

without dropping a set

through pool-play before defeating

fellow Christchurch player

and No 4 seed, Liam Adams,

6-2, 6-1 in the semi-final.

Falck will return to club action

with Bishopdale in the Tennis

Canterbury men’s premier interclub

competition.

The club No 1 will look to help

Bishopdale edge out Waimairi

on Saturday. In round one of the

competition, Bishopdale had a

close loss on sets to defending

champions Cashmere. Falck

defeated Harry Weeds 6-2, 6-2

in singles and combined with

Gareth Robb to defeat current

New Zealand doubles champion

James Meredith and Tim

Meredith 1-6, 6-4, 10-6 in the

doubles.

Meanwhile Mason – who

finished second at the national

under-14 girls tournament in

January – defeated top seed Elys

Tse 6-3, 6-2 to win her maiden

masters title.

The No 2 seed had a near

perfect weekend in Hamilton,

winning all five of her matches

without dropping a set.

Mason will now look to help

her Elmwood team bounce

back following a defeat to

Waimairi in their last interclub

tie. On Saturday, they will host

Cashmere which have started

the season with a loss and a bye.

& Property

How property buyers can

spot a healthy home

Purchasing a house that’s warm and dry is a priority for many

property hunters, but how can buyers identify a ‘healthy’ home?

Real Estate Authority (REA) chief

executive Kevin Lampen-Smith says

there are a handful of key traits to

watch out for.

“A house that’s hard to heat

can make you sick and miserable.

In many cases, the key is good

insulation,” Lampen-Smith says.

The World Health Organisation

recommends a minimum of 18

degrees in our homes. Insulation is

often the most practical and costeffective

way to make a house more

energy efficient. An insulated home

is warmer in winter and cooler in

summer, which can provide health

benefits like reducing mould and

damp.

“Ask the agent or seller if the

property is insulated, the type

of insulation used and when it

was installed. Ask your building

inspector to check the state of the

insulation,” Lampen-Smith suggests.

Lampen-Smith explains insulation

should be replaced or topped up if

it’s less than 12cm thick, doesn’t

cover the whole ceiling, has become

wet or damp, or been damaged by

rodents or birds.

“If a property you’re looking at

isn’t insulated, it’s a good idea to

budget for the cost of doing the

work, as your health (and your

wallet) will thank you in the long

term.”

There’s support available for some

buyers, such as a Warmer Kiwi

Homes insulation grant. Some

local councils also allow

property owner to add the

cost of insulation to their

rates and pay this back

over time.

When working to

identify a healthy home,

Lampen-Smith says it’s

important to watch out

for dampness. Signs of

dampness include musty

smells, damp or mouldy

wardrobe contents,

E: mike@starmedia.kiwi

mould forming behind paintings or

furniture, or mould or watermarks

on ceilings or walls.

“Condensation on windows,

especially in bedrooms, isn’t

necessarily a sign of excessive

dampness if it only happens

occasionally during winter,”

Lampen-Smith explains.

Ideally, the house will have

extractor fans in the bathroom,

kitchen and laundry that are vented

outside. Fans should not be vented

into the roof space.

Good curtains can also help a

house retain warmth.

“It’s important to note that

curtains aren’t necessarily included

in the sale of the house, so ask about

this and if the answer is yes, ensure

they’re included in the list of chattels

in the sale and purchase agreement,”

Lampen-Smith says.

According to EECA, good curtains

should be floor-length and fit tightly

against the wall or window frame.

Sill-length curtains are ineffective.

Curtains should be wider than the

window frame and preferably be

double layered with a thick lining. If

the property has ineffective curtains,

or does not come with curtains,

buyers should factor this cost into

their budget.

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

facility where families can spend more

time in a relaxed environment.”

e new west wing, to be completed by

the end of 2019, will incorporate a large

sports bar on the ground floor and a

mezzanine floor above with a

performance area and a cafe opening out
