A CANTERBURY University law

student being investigated for a

sexual assault has been allowed to

go overseas on a study-related trip.

Bu the university’s dean of

law Ursula Cheer is refusing to

discuss the matter.

“I can’t comment

about any

of this because

of confidentiality

and privacy,” she

told The Star

yesterday.

The Star has

learned a female

student has laid

a complaint abou the accused

being allowed to go on the trip.

It is understood it is no the

same person who has laid the

sexual assault complain to the

police.

The Star has been told it is a

rape investigation.

The Star sent a number of questions

to Canterbury University

yesterday but none would be answered.

Said Canterbury University

spokeswoman Margaret Agnew:

“UC cannot respond to allegations

that are before the police.”

She referred the questions

back to Dr Cheer. Her phone was

turned off.

Police would also not comment

on the matter.

The overseas trip involves

both male and female law students.

‘Si and Phil’ to

ONE OF New Zealand’s bestknown

A COMMUNITY board will

Community Board has

munched through more than

“It’s an internal matter. I don’t

“It’s a discussion we need

to have to gauge each other’s

responses as to what they see as

Fire rages, homes at risk

Time to buy property as listings grow

• By Julia Evans and

Sophie Cornish

IT’S A buyer’s market for

properties in Canterbury.

Figures released by realestate.

co.nz yesterday show Canterbury

as continuing to be one of the most

active markets in the country.

A big climb in new listings

and a drop in asking prices are

making the market more attractive

to buyers, said realestate.

co.nz spokeswoman Vanessa

Taylor.

Ms Taylor calls Canterbury a

“unique region” and said there

have been a number of times this

year the region has bucked other

main city trends, this month it

has a similar profile to the Auckland,

Central Otago/Lakes and

Wellington regions.

Harcourts real estate agent

Cameron Bailey said the whole

market was busy – from first

home buyers to those looking for

luxury.

“I’d say it is a fair market. It’s

a market for realistic sellers and

there are really good opportunities

for buyers too,” he said.

But Mr Bailey said while it was

busy, the city’s property market

had finally recovered from the

earthquake.

“We’ve come off an artificial

market. I’d say it has dropped

back into a normal market. From

a buyer’s point of view Christchurch

is a beautiful city to live in

and there’s so much cool stuff

happening.”

New listings in Canterbury

lifted 12.3 per cent to 1776, while

the average asking price dropped

2.7 per cent to $498,208.

In the past month the Canterbury

region had more than

44,000 unique browsers looking

at property.

Mr Bailey said there was a

lot of housing stock in the city,

which meant buyers could be

more picky as to how they spend

money.

“People can be more price

sensitive and pay what a house is

worth, not always what the buyer

wants. It gives them more opportunities

and more choice.”

The most popular suburbs

searched were Fendalton, Rangiora,

the central city, Cashmere,

then Rolleston.

MARKET:

Harcourts real

estate agent

Cameron Bailey

with a property

in Wood Lane,

Fendalton,

which is one

of the most

popular suburbs

along with the

central city

(above).

“Cantabrians remain the

biggest searchers for property

within the region, which is

no surprise. They’re followed

by property seekers from the

Auckland, Otago and Wellington

regions.

Mr Bailey said the central city

was popular for convenience.

Suburbs such as Fendalton and

Cashmere were close to town,

but also allowed for a suburban

lifestyle.

“However, there is also interest

from Australia, with New

South Wales and Queensland

registering the next highest levels

of seekers after the main New

Zealand centres,” said Ms

Taylor.

Mr Bailey said he’d had a lot of

interest from Australia and the

United Kingdom in particular for

the last few years.

“People are seeing an

opportunity from the rebuild

and coming back to the city,” he

said.

Mortgage broker Sam Parsons

said first home buyers are the

biggest market for his business

right now.

“We are still finding the first

home market to be extremely

strong. There is still a lot of

first home buyers entering the

market. But there is less in the

way of investors and older age

bracket, second-home purchasing

going on, which is generally for

investment properties.”

Timeball special for CTV survivor

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Matt Salmons

MARYANNE Jackson survived

the tragedy of the CTV building

collapse in the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

THe site will forever hold

emotional memories for the Mt

Pleasant woman.

Tomorrow, another quakedevasted

site will also hold

special memories when the

rebuilt Lyttelton Timeball tower

is reopened.

Her grandmother Gertrude

was born there in 1889 while her

great-grandfather John Richard

Toomey was the flag-signalman.

“We were always told about

it and we often went there,” Ms

Jackson said.

“It was like our castle on the

hill . . . it was close to our heart.

A great connection that we are

very proud of.”

Ms Jackson and her brother

John McKenna, a Lytteltonbased

ship’s captain, would

attend the opening ceremony.

THe tower was almost

completely destroyed along with

the station building during the

February 22 earthquake and

subsequent aftershocks.

Only the tower section of the

1876-built structure could be

saved, the $3 million restoration

project began in July last

year. Work on the tower and

flagpole finished in June, while

landscaping work finished this

week.

Ms Jackson was the only CTV

employee in the building to

escape when the magnitude 6.3

DESCENDANT:

Maryanne Jackson

with a painting of

the Timeball Station

which belonged to her

mother.

earthquake struck.

She ran from her ground-floor

desk when the shaking began.

The building collapsed behind

her claiming 16 of her colleagues.

In total, ​115 people were killed

in the central city building, the

Madras St site of which is now a

memorial to those who died.

RETURNING: The Lyttelton Timeball

tower reopens to the public tomorrow.

Ms Jackson said her mother

Hilary would be very upset to

know the fate of the Timeball

Station.

“I would like to see it all

rebuilt, but it’s great to see it back

up on the side of the hill.”

Ms Jackson said seeing the

tower restored returned “a bit of

normalcy” to the port.

THe years where the iconic

structure was not visible on the

hill had been “upsetting,” she

said.

Ms Jackson’s great-grandfather

John Richard Toomey was the

first flag-signalman to live in the

Timeball Station, taking the post

in 1879 at the age of 15.

Signalmen used coloured flags

to communicate between ships

and the port.

John Richard

Toomey

Mr Toomey taught himself both

local and international flag signals

as well as Morse code and other

tools of the signalman’s trade.

“Quite clever really, but he

would have learned a lot from

his father Peter Michael Toomey

who was a sea captain,” Ms

Jackson said.

Signalmen worked from the

tower until 1934, when they were

replaced by radio.

Mr Toomey later moved his

family to Adderley Heads where

he held another signalman’s

position, before moving back to

Lyttelton itself.

“Our family has always lived in

Lyttelton,” Ms Jackson said.

“THe sea has always been in

our blood. I always have to live

near the sea.”

The aftermath of being hooked on

Synthetic drugs have

possibly caused two

deaths in Christchurch

and put many others

in hospital. Reporter

Sophie Cornish talks to

a recovering addict

AT THE height of her addiction,

Samantha Tye lost her children,

family and ended up in jail.

Now, after eight years on

synthetic drugs, Miss Tye has

been clean for eight months,

however, she still lives with the

effects of her drug use.

Miss Tye no longer has custody

of her two children, aged nine

and six-years-old and suffers

from depression and anxiety.

The 24-year-old moved away

from Christchurch to Invercargill

to get clean at the beginning of

the year.

When she first tried synthetic

cannabis it was still legal to buy

in New Zealand.

Then known as ‘legal highs,’

the drugs were banned in 2014,

with the introduction of the

Psychoactive Substances Act.

The synthetic drugs were

more appealing to Miss Tye,

being cheaper and stronger than

normal cannabis.

IN RECOVERY: Samantha Tye was hooked on synthetic drugs for eight years before she went cold turkey eight months ago.

“I’m not exactly sure when I first

started smoking it . . . my friend

who used to smoke it one day

offered me a puff to try it and I got

hooked . . . it gave me a better buzz

than weed did, it was way stronger

and you were more high for a

longer period of time,” she said.

A bag of the drugs could be

purchased for as low as $10.

Her addiction led her to

shoplifting, a criminal record and

eventually to jail, in 2015.

Miss Tye received a six-month

sentence for shoplifting offences.

She would sell stolen goods to

support her addiction.

Prior to this, Child Youth and

Family became involved with her

son in 2014, and he was taken off

her.

He has lived with his adoptive

parents for five years.

Her daughter has lived with

Miss Tye’s sister for eight years.

Her family tried to get Miss Tye

clean throughout her addiction

period, however, she admits she

pushed them away.

They did try and help me but

eventually, they stepped back.

I was so involved with heaps of

people on the drugs and pushed

my whole family away.”

After a recent death of a friend,

who she didn’t wish to name,

Miss Tye wants the message out

about how dangerous synthetic

drugs can be.

During her detox process,

which lasted about two weeks,

Miss Tye was left shaking,

spewing, sweating and screaming

at the walls.

“I basically shut myself away at

home, away from everyone and

just did it on my own. I had to

barricade myself in my room

. . . after two weeks I woke up and

felt like a cigarette and a big feed

of fish ’n’ chips. So that’s what I

did and I never looked back.”

Final stage. Final opportunities.

commencing the final stage of building. Villas 26-30 are now under construction,

soon to be followed by the last set of villas. These architecturally designed 2 bedroom

Road patroller to artist

• By Sophie Cornish

KATIE TEMPLE never

thought her job as a roadpatroller

would lead her to

creating inspiring artwork.

The 10-year-old is

the youngest ever

winner of the junior section

of this year’s SCAPE

Public Art Re:Activate

competition.

Her art piece titled

Changing Pathways was

inspired by the signs she

uses in her role as a roadpatroller

at Thorrington

Primary School.

Both sides of the

‘lollipop’ Katie carries as

she helps children cross the

road safely has a different

message on it.

“On one side of the road

patrol sign it says ‘thanks

for stopping’ and on the

other side it says, ‘have a

nice day’. So that’s where I

got the idea of using signs.”

she said.

Katie’s artwork has two

signs, which relate to our

everyday choices, which

she wanted to highlight,

such as walking, biking

and how we use water.

Katie’s mother Kimala

Temple admits Katie has

been “quietly excited” by

all the comments on her

artwork and how far her

message has gone.

“During SCAPE’s grand

opening, a professor from

Massey University told

Katie that her artwork

was inspiring and some of

the best she had seen. She

took photos to show her

students,” she said.

SCAPE spokeswoman

Carolyne Grant said Katie

is the youngest winner

they have ever had in the

competition.

“Katie is excited to have

her artwork in Hagley

Park, to get attention and

provoke thoughts on all the

subjects especially around

the environment, people

and animals of the world,”

she said.

Keeping the old skills alive

While machines serve

us at supermarkets

and make almost all of

the products we use

every day, the traditions

of old are still being

kept alive by a select

few craftspeople. Julia

Evans reports

CAN YOU carve a mandolin out

of a piece of wood?

How about weave a harakeke

basket, make your own soap or

bind a book?

It’s old practices like these that

being preserved by craftspeople

around the city and their place

in 2018 will be showcased during

next week’s Necessary Traditions

festival.

From shoemaking, Windsor

chair making, rag-rug making,

blacksmithing,

willow basketwork,

pin-hole

photography

and sourdough

baking. To

soap making,

cup, bowl and

Juliet Arnott

spoon carving,

reforestation,

darning, preserving and fermenting,

heritage building techniques,

raranga harakeke weaving, bookbinding

and ceramics.

It sounds like the start of a

poem – only missing a butcher, a

baker and a candlestick maker.

The festival at the Arts Centre

is the first of its kind.

For ceramicist Tatyanna

Meharry the event is about

passing on a skill she was taught

by her grandmother.

“I grew up in a really creative

family, my grandmother was an

artist and a potter. I remember

we were allowed to go into her

studio and make the world’s ugliest

pots when we were young,”

she said.

“If you couldn’t make it in our

family, you couldn’t have it.”

Meharry said keeping traditional

craft alive was important

in the 21st-century.

“It’s really important because

we live in a consumer society.

It’s bit of a monster really. With

mass-made consumer products

you’re less likely to understand

the story behind them and so just

throw them out,” she said.

However, Meharry’s work connect

the item to the location it

was sourced from.

She uses local raw clay materials

to create bowls that look like

landscapes when fired.

“I collect resources from

around New Zealand, particularly

Canterbury. I’m passionate

about resources, you have to

create items that are treasures,”

she said.

Meharry said her work aimed

to create a sense of location and

place, as well as knowing exactly

where all the materials came

from.

“Bowls that are mass-produced

are made of other countries’ resources.

They’re not bad, but you

don’t value them.”

A sustainable future meant

taking time to consider where

products came from and crafts

such as ceramics and pottery

were vital to that, she said.

During the festival, Meharry

will be giving a talk, hosting a

public demonstration about her

work and running workshops.

While most people pop down

to the store to buy a packet of

shocking pink pegs to hang their

washing out and a rake to boot,

Greg Quinn makes his own.

The process of making them

is as valuable to me as the end

product. It’s a bonus that you get

a usable product at the end,” he

said.

“I’ve experimented over the

years and made lots of useless

items.”

Quinn said the consumerism

boom was over and people were

looking to a sustainable future.

“A time may come in the

future where you have to look

for a shoemaker or whoever and

they won’t be there if we don’t

continue to support them now,”

he said.

“It’s all about keeping these

crafts alive and keeping them

relevant.”

Festival organiser Juliet Arnott

said the festival was unique as it

set out to celebrate crafts in the

context of the future.

“We try to keep the traditions

alive because they’re important

for various reasons. But also

we actually need some of these

things for the future. It’s not just

tradition for traditions sake.”

But she said a lot of her

inspiration came from watching

craftspeople work in the Arts

Centre before the earthquakes.

“Its all about getting people to

come along and watch the magic

in seeing a material start in one

state and finish in another.”

IN AWE: Sam and Rosie Averill will take part in Sunday’s event to

remember the liberation of a small French town.

Great-grandchildren of

WW1 hero will be present

at commemoration

CHRISTCHURCH

teenagers Rosie and Sam

Averill will help mark the

day – exactly 100 years

ago – that their greatgrandfather

took the first

steps towards the liberation

of a small French town.

Leslie Averill was only

a few years older than the

pair when he became the

first man to scale the ramparts

of Le Quesnoy, climbing

a precariously placed

ladder to help surprise the

German occupiers and seal

a spot in the history of the

Great War.

That brave act by 21-yearold

Lieutenant Averill and

his fellow New Zealand

Division soldiers will be

commemorated with the

unveiling of a plaque in

Christchurch’s Park of

Remembrance on Sunday

at 5pm.

For many, it was a young

nation’s finest hour of

World War 1.

Both Rosie, 16, and her

cousin, Sam, 15, are “very

proud to have the Averill

name.”

“We are both in awe of

our great-grandfather,” Rosie

said. “It must have been

utterly terrifying, putting

your life on the line to help

free a town.”

For Sam, his greatgrandfather’s

feat is “incredibly

impressive.”

“It’s cool that people

think of my family name

so highly, particularly in Le

Quesnoy,” he said.

Both Rosie and Sam have

Leslie Averill

visited the fortress town in

northern France, and plan

to return.

They view their trip to Le

Quesnoy as a pilgrimage,

“a rite of passage for all

family members.”

“Imagine being there for

the 150th anniversary,”

says Rosie, who hopes to

follow her great-grandfather

into the medical

profession.

On Sunday, Sam

and Rosie will join

Mayor Lianne Dalziel,

Christchurch Memorial

RSA vice-president Jim

Lilley, Lieutenant Colonel

Kendall Langston and

the Honorary Consuls

for France, Martine

Marshall-Durieux, and

Belgium, Lieve Bierque,

for the unveiling and tree

planting.

However, 70 Averill

family members will be

in Le Quesnoy that day

as the citizens remember

the heroic actions of the

New Zealand Rifle Brigade

soldiers from the other side

of the world.

While there was no loss

of civilian life, 130 New

Zealanders were killed in

the push to free the town.

A century later, visitors

can wander down Rue du

Docteur Averill and past

L’école maternelle du Docteur

Averill.

Work is also under way

to transform the former

mayor’s residence in the

town into a memorial

museum commemorating

New Zealand’s role in battles

on the Western Front.

Leslie Averill – by then a

well-known Christchurch

doctor – often returned to

the town.

Following the war, he

had won a New Zealand

Expeditionary Force scholarship

to study medicine

at the University of Edinburgh.

In 1926, Dr Averill was

appointed as the first

executive of St George’s

Hospital, holding that role

for more than 40 years. He

would continue to introduce

new ideas on surgery and

patient care in Canterbury

for many years.

In 1973, the French

government made Dr

Averill a Chevalier de la

Légion d’honneur – one

of the nation’s highest

honours. He died in

Christchurch on June 4,

1981, aged 84.

Bid to bring

AUSTRALIAN disaster recovery

expert and psychologist Dr Rob

bringing a disaster psychologist

into Dallington will come into

fruition.

A seminar will be held to

consider bringing Dr Gordon

to the city and the cost to do

that. The meeting will also

consider the current issues

facing Dallington and the wider

suburbs on the residential red

It comes after the Dallington

funding from the board for a

The trust wants the

issue and turn it into a wellness

Understanding the money trail

• By Julia Evans

FORMER investment banker

and city councillor Raf Manji

wants to make the city’s finances

understandable.

Cr Manji said as it stands the

city council’s finances are totally

unpalatable to the people they

impact the most – ratepayers.

He said finances were currently

“static” and

“opaque” and

planned to have

simpler layout

and graphics

spending more

digestible.

In the 2017-18

financial year, the city council

reported $13.1 billion in assets, its

revenue was $992 million and its

borrowing was $1.9 billion.

It’s large figures like those, Cr

Manji said were hard for residents

to understand.

Not only that, he said city

councillors themselves struggle.

The issue for me is that it’s

clearly problematic when councillors

can’t understand them,”

Cr Manji said.

So he has been working on a

plan to present the city council’s

finances in terms that everyone

understands.

The plans are to make the

financial information more accessible

. . . at the moment if you

look at the info, it’s very difficult

to understand. So I want to eventually

get it online in things like

simple pie charts and you will

be slowly able to drill down into

council spending,” he said.

Cr Manji said the plan would

be implemented in stages – starting

with a new layout to this

week’s finance and performance

committee meeting agenda.

“We’re spending a lot of time

doing reports on things that no

one ever reads,” he said.

At a recent meeting Cr

Manji, the city council’s finance

spokesman, presented the annual

report, which breaks down

spending and income for the last

year.

He said he was “disappointed”

there was no discussion on the

Cr Manji said the goal was to

make future Annual Plans and

Long Term Plans incredibly easy

to understand.

But he said it would also relate

to the recent city council resident

satisfaction survey, which

revealed residents were unhappy

with decision-making and did

not feel like they could participate

in council processes.

“It’s clearly an area we can

had hoped.

Tug Lyttelton Preservation Society

head stoker Mike Bruce said

the marine surveyor who oversaw

the tug’s sea trials on October

4 had given the society a list of

items to address before they could

carry passengers.

Though the society had funding

to address most of it, the time

frame pushed the date back from

December.

“It’s nothing major, It’s just time

and effort,” Mr Bruce said.

The list included the need to

add another emergency exit and

update flotation devices, fire

extinguishers, signage and communication

equipment.

The most difficult item to address

on the list was the requirement

for the lifeboat to be at least

2.8m long and capable of travelling

at 6km for two hours.

Mr Bruce said the society would

request an exemption for the

lifeboat requirement.

evacuation

planning

• By Georgia O’Connor-

PEOPLE LIVING along the

Brighton coastline who evacuated

the night of the 2016 Kaikoura

earthquake are being called on to

take part in a research project.

Canterbury University is

aiming to survey as many

residents as possible to collect

data on the tsunami evacuation

response that took place following

the magnitude 7.8 earthquake

nearly two years ago.

Matthew Hughes, one of the

academics overseeing the project,

said the survey isn’t about asking

for opinions on the night of the

earthquake, it is about what

residents did in response to the

tsunami hazard.

The survey is part of a

Art on walls and around the world

THE LATEST local project

for street artist Wongi ‘Freak’

Wilson could potentially see his

art travelling all over the world.

He has just arrived back

from Taupo where he spent the

previous five days taking part in

Graffiato: Taupo Street Art Festival

but Wongi Wilson aka Freak,

is not slowing down.

“That (the art festival) was a

break from a relatively long-term

commission that I started in

September which will take me

into the new year. The Ministry

of Social Development approached

me to paint murals at

Te Punai Wai, each of the five

units are being refurbished and

I’m working my way through

each one consecutively as they’re

ready for me.

Freak has gained notoriety

not just in his home patch of

Christchurch but further afield –

a far cry for the man that used to

get on his hands and knees to lay

carpet for a living. Now he does

what he loves, still voicing his

opinion through his graffiti, but

getting paid for it.

“Street art is an intervention

from the mundane and that’s

extremely important. It’s also

proven to be an excellent attraction

for the tourism sector.”

CREATIVE: Wongi Wilson at work on a mural.

Another recent project was a

commission by Christchurch

Airport to create artwork for a

set of limited edition recyclable

bags.

The airport approached me

and asked if I’d be interested in

designing the reusable bags as

part of the project. It took off

from there and the project grew

and they subsequently commissioned

me to paint the designs to

display at the airport,” he says.

The three designs depict Our

Place: Our City, Our Land and

Our Ocean. Freak drew inspiration

from iconic landmarks that

make Christchurch and the

South Island special.

The bags will be available

throughout November and

December at participating

airport retailers for customers

who spend $50 or more.

Our People

Tina Hutchison-Thomas

From Star Wars to wearable art

The colourful garments

seen on stage and

screen are the bread and

butter of Mt Pleasant’s

Tina Hutchison-Thomas.

Matt Salmons caught

up with the World of

Wearable Art New

Zealand design awardwinner

Where did you grow up?

I was born in Christchurch

and I’m basically a Cantabrian

through and through. I was here

for my whole life until I went to

Sydney. I did the fashion and

design course at CPIT. That was

a two-year course.

What about your family?

I met my husband Tim when

I was 14 and he was 16. He took

me to my first formal. We dated

for a couple of months and then

went our separate ways. We met

again at a friend’s 20th. We’ve

now got three children, Lily, 13,

Harry, 11, and Maddie, 9. They’re

all creative in their own right.

Lily is more an artist, Harry is

more into music and Maddie

is more into performing arts.

They see my long hours, but they

understand and see my passion.

Hopefully, that can evolve into a

passion for their careers.

What was your first job after

study?

My first job was with the

Southern Ballet as the wardrobe

mistress. It hadn’t had a

wardrobe mistress for ages and

the place was a bit of a wreck. I

was just up for any challenge so I

said ‘yes, I can do it’. The first big

end-of-year show I did required

30 tutus and I had no idea how to

make them. I pulled a tutu apart,

worked out how it was made and

then roped in a whole bunch of

ballet mums to get the job done.

That was my first experience of

a 70-hour week and strangely I

wanted to come back. I think it

was enough to get me hooked.

What do you like about

costume designing?

All my costume skills, I’ve

learned on the job. There’s way

more sowing and handwork than

you’d have in fashion. It’s much

more labour intensive which is

what I enjoy the most.

Where to from there?

There wasn’t a great deal of

costume work in Christchurch

so I jumped on a plane at 21 to

go to Sydney. I hated it, it was

awful. I wanted to go straight

into costume, but I didn’t have

enough experience so I ended up

in retail. I came back and worked

with the Court Theatre for three

years. One of my contacts got

work on Star Wars: Revenge of

the Sith. I put my hand up and

we went back to Sydney for four

years in 2003. That was a massive

eye-opener.

Did you work on any

costumes people would know?

I did Jimmy Smits’ costumes,

STUDIO: Tina Hutchison-Thomas at home in her studio with the World of Wearable Art

award she won for her Eye See you Fluffy Kōwhai costume design.

he was Bail Organa (in Star

Wars: Revenge of the Sith). I

also got to work on the actual

Darth Vader costume and a

bit of work on Keisha Castle-

Hughes’ costume. I was basically

in charge of the silk velvet. It’s

really temperamental. If you’re

making costumes, it’s your

least favourite fabric as it has a

mind of it’s own, it’s expensive

and it’s really hard to get. After

that, I free-lanced at Sydney

Theatre Company and Opera

Australia. I also worked for a

company that made costumes for

the touring show of Phantom of

the Opera in which they sent me

to South Africa and China.

When did you come back to

NZ?

I got pregnant when we were

in Sydney and we had our first

child over there. I got pregnant

again quite quickly and we

came back to Christchurch at

the end of 2006. I worked for a

little bit with Southern Opera

while having another child. I

then ended up back at the Court

Theatre. We’ll probably move

back to Sydney when the kids

grow up, who knows.

Was that when you landed the

job working on New Zealand

film The Stolen?

I got to design that, which was

really exciting as that had been

a life goal for me. I brought my

dear friend Joanna Grenke over

to help. She’s the menswear tailor

at Sydney Theatre Company. We

hired a whole bunch of locals

as well. It was a real challenge

but the Court Theatre was a

great resource and we hired

more costumes from Auckland.

Not only did I design all the

costumes, but I ran the costume

department, cut patterns,

stitched costumes, and worked as

a wardrobe standby. No wonder

I needed a break after that film.

There were so many extras, it

really pushes you to your limits.

I did at least one 100-hour week.

But I knew it would be tough and

I’m always up for a challenge.

Why did you leave the Court

Theatre?

I’d got to a point in my career

where I felt that I wanted the

next challenge, so I left and

have been working in freelance

costuming ever since. Then

WOW came up. I said ‘I’ll give

it a go’. I never thought I was

an arty kind of person, I was

always a purist when it came

to costume. My idea ‘geogami’

came up very quickly and just

evolved as I worked on it and

I got into the final, so that

was really exciting. It was a

great experience and it’s very

addictive. As soon as I came

back I was thinking about what

to do this year.

How was it working without

the constraints of a script?

I found that difficult. When

I’m designing for a show, it’s

much more collaborative. But

designing a costume without

constraints, it was a challenge.

And I really struggled writing

about the piece. For me, there

have always been guidelines, so

that was the hardest part. But

it was different, so that’s why I

liked it.

Where did the idea for this

year’s design come from?

For my entry this year,

I wanted to do something

completely different, which is

why everything was soft and

fluffy. I’d done spikes before.

Last year I saw what the judges

were looking for in the winning

designs. I knew they liked

sparkly detail and interesting use

of fabric. I put them all together

and ended up with the crazy

Fluffy Kōwhai inspired by the

poodle moth.

That’s not a common moth,

where did you hear about it?

One of the sections this year

was ‘under the microscope’.

So I was looking at moths and

butterflies and the poodle moth

caught my eye. I thought what

is that? I hadn’t seen a lot of fur

in other shows so I thought I’d

give it a go. It allowed me to do

both fabric dying and sparkly. I

spent ages doing the eyes, way

longer than I anticipated. The

problem was that I had four

other jobs on at the same time

to finish. I missed the shipping

deadline but my dad and my

step-mum offered to take it to

Nelson. I finished it at 5am and

they picked it up at 8am, it was a

bit of a mission. I’ve done some

long hours, but I’d never done an

all-nighter in my 20-something

years in costuming.

Will you enter next year?

I don’t know. I was just saying

to Tim this morning that maybe

that’s another box ticked for me.

It depends on the workload, but

that doesn’t seem to be a problem

for me, I just keep saying yes to

everything, so we’ll see.

The Star

All hands on deck for summer planting

With summer just around

the corner, it’s all hands on

deck to ensure a steady

harvest throughout the

summer months. Get

those heat-loving crops in

the ground ahead of the

warm, long days to come

BEFORE ANY of the following

crops can be planted, the soil

needs to be well nourished and

dug over. If the ground is dry,

it will need a good watering

before any crops go in. Blend

in soil conditioners, such as

sheep pellets and well-matured

compost, or a bit of both, then

add a dusting of vegetable

fertiliser and you are good to

grow.

Tomatoes

By now, if you have been

growing your own plants from

seed, the plants should be at a

size where they are ready for

transplanting into the garden.

Aim for seedings to be at least

10cm tall, however they can

three or four times that size too.

Position them in a sunny spot

away from any blustery winds,

and plant them deeply in the

soil. And don’t forget to stake

the plants – this is important

if you want a bumper crop, as

the stems can easily break with

the weight of the fruit and can

be damaged by wind. If room

is tight, and space is limited,

grafted tomatoes produce a

larger and more reliable crop on

one plant.

‘Big Boss’ is a new variety this

year. It is a beefsteak variety,

only grows to 1m tall and

produces loads of large fruit

that are about 0.5kg each. With

superb flavour and reliable

cropping ability, look out for

it and ask for it by name at

Oderings.

Eggplant

Plants will be in all the garden

centres now, so if you missed

sowing seeds, don’t panic. Plant

one to two plants per person in

the household. Eggplants need a

long, hot summer to thrive, so if

you live in a spot that hasn’t fully

warmed up yet, you can hold off

planting them out for another

month. They are an ideal crop

for large tubs and bins, just

ensure they have good drainage

as they hate wet feet. Be aware

that they are not a fast-growing

crop, and they do take a few

weeks to settle in before they

start actively growing.

Both grafted and seedling

hybrids are available in the

shops. Seed catalogues have a

huge selection of varieties and

it isn’t too late to sow seed – if

the plants are in the ground by

Christmas you will be fine.

‘Golden egg’ is a neat golfball-sized

yellow variety and one

of the best larger ones is ‘black

moon’.

Cucumber

Now the ground temperatures

are warm, and the coldest nights

are all but over, cucumbers can

be planted out. You still have

time to sow seeds, too – these

germinate in about one week,

and are ready to plant out within

a month. For the best results,

telegraph cucumbers do best in

a glasshouse or in a sheltered

spot in the garden. As they

begin to grow, the long tendrillike

branches scramble. Where

possible, tie these branches up to

keep the developing fruit off the

ground as this will ensure even

ripening. However, if the fruit

get too heavy on the vine and

move about in the wind they can

snap off, so, in areas where wind

protection is not guaranteed, it

is best to leave cucumber to trail

along the ground – a few pale

patches on the bottom side of a

cucumber is better than nothing.

A reliable smooth-skinned

telegraph variety is ‘english

greengrocer’ (see kings seeds).

Apple cucumbers are neat, with

their pale creamy white flesh

and skin, and for those who

enjoy the smaller, more intensely

flavoured cucumbers look for

the Lebanese types. These are

ideal for growing along the

ground.

Kūmara

For gardeners who live in cold

regions, apologies, but kūmara

won’t easily grow for you – they

require a long, hot season.

Bundles of cuttings are in

the shops now and should be

planted in well-prepared and

dug-over soil, on mounds,

roughly 30–50cm apart. The

plants take a few weeks to settle

in and, by Christmas,

the plants will be actively

growing, almost like triffids,

if the conditions are ideal. Water

as required when the soil dries

out. Harvest should be done

before the frosts arrive as the

crop needs to cure in the sun.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

STRAWBERRY PARFAIT

Ingredients

1 cup greek yogurt

4 tablespoons water

3 tablespoons honey

1½ cups strawberries, hulled and

quartered

2 tablespoons sugar

Directions

Put strawberries and sugar

in a saucepan and cook over

medium-low heat for about 5min

until it gets juicy and tender. Let

it cool completely.

Whisk yogurt and water until

creamy. Stir in honey.

Put 2 tablespoons yogurt into

a glass.

Cover it with cooked strawberries.

Make another layer of yogurt

over strawberries.

Put cooked strawberries over

it.

Repeat for other glasses.

Serve after chilling or immediately.

Garnish with drinking chocolate.

PAN-SEARED PORK

STEAKS AND STEAMED

ASPARAGUS

Ingredients

4 ribeye pork steaks

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cracked pepper or

peppercorns

1 tablespoons olive oil

6 cloves roasted garlic

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Bunch of asparagus spears

Directions

Season the pork steaks

with salt and peppercorns.

Allow them to come to room

temperature for about 30min.

Heat a heavy bottom pan

(preferably cast iron) that will fit

all the steaks over high heat. Add

the oil. When the oil shimmers

in the pan and begins to move,

it’s time to add the steaks. Carefully

add them, one at a time, to

the pan. Allow to cook without

moving for 5min.

After five minutes, flip the

steaks. By this point, the oil

should be very hot. Turn the heat

down to medium-high after the

steaks have all been flipped. Add

in the roasted garlic.

After 3min, add in the butter

and reduce the heat to medium

low.

Continue until the steaks are

cooked through.

•Cooking times are going to

vary with the thickness of your

steaks. The thicker the meat, the

longer the cook time.

•Serve with cooked asparagus,

steamed or, for simplicity, cook

for 4min in a microwave.

Toyota Corolla hybrid

beats rising fuel prices

I’VE OFTEN been told it’s

the little things that count,

looking after the pennies

and the pounds will take

care of themselves, is a

saying I relate to.

It may seem a small

point, but Toyota’s new

Corolla hybrid is rated

to run on 91-octane fuel,

down from 95-octane the

previous model needed. If

you take into account the

cost of fuel these days –

$2.35 per litre at the time

this evaluation went to

print, against $2.45 for premium

– the savings over

time will certainly add up.

Take into account, too,

that the Corolla hybrid is

regarded as a fuel miser in

the first instance, then it’s

no wonder that the world is

looking at electric power as

the answer to our reliance

on fossil fuel.

The entire Corolla

range has entered its 12thgeneration,

as opposed to

a totally new car, the latest

Corolla is more of an

upgrade, however, it’s a

substantial upgrade, there’s

a new chassis structure and

in both hybrid and nonhybrid

forms there have

been significant driveline

enhancements.

There are five Corolla

models – two of those are

hybrid. I’m due to drive the

traditional petrol model

later in the year, this evaluation

focuses on the rangetopping

ZR hybrid.

In its latest iteration, the

Corolla has come a long

way, build quality is superb,

and it feels just so right to

be in. In ZR form it carries

a lot of kit – head-up

display, satellite navigation,

combination leather trim,

heated seats up front, and

a raft of other specification

which, for a car listing at

just $38,490, is amazing

given you also get the benefits

of hybrid technology.

Toyota rates the Corolla

hybrid with a 4.2-litre per

100km (67mpg) combined

cycle average. The

trip computer was listing

an impressive 5.3l/100km

(53mpg) average when I

took the evaluation car

back to the dealership.

Based around the

mechanicals which have

made Prius a household

word in terms of hybrid

technology, the Corolla

hybrid utilises a 1.8-litre

petrol engine coupled to the

Synergy Drive system which

transfers power though a

continuously variable automatic

transmission.

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

TOYOTA COROLLA HYBRID: Fuel-friendly.

The petrol/electric combination

develops a total of

around 90kW and 142Nm,

varying at any given time

depending on whether

the engine is active and/or

batteries are supplying the

drive.

• Price – Toyota

Corolla ZR hybrid,

$38,490

• Dimensions –

Length, 4370mm;

width, 1790mm;

height, 1435mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,

1798cc,

90kW, 142Nm,

continuously

variable automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11sec

• Fuel usage –

4.2l/100km

Of course, electric propulsion

is the ultimate

aim, and if situations

allowed, that would be the

case but, of course, battery

capacity is constantly

exhausted, and as a vehicle

it is required to accelerate

and maintain momentum,

which is why the petrol

engine operates at will.

The entire process is

seamless, and Toyota has

indicated it has done more

work to make that transition

even more fluid. With

the quiet way in which the

engine works, it’s really

hard to pick up the points

at where the petrol engine

is cutting in and out.

When it comes time to

tackle a quick corner or

two, the Corolla hybrid

steers with precision and

reacts favourably to steering

input. If you also take

into account that the batteries

create a more even

front/rear weight distribution,

body movement is

well balanced and there is

just gentle movement over

the suspension.

In ZR form the tyres

are a sport specification

Dunlop type (225/45 x

18in), they offer substantial

The Star

grip and strong steering

feel for the driver.

I took the test car on

a quick burst through

Gebbies Pass from

Motukarara to Teddington

and return, those steep

hilly sections were no trouble

to the hybrid system,

and the handling was absolutely

delightful, it steers

directly and reacts quickly

to steering input, the tyre/

chassis/suspension combination

promotes a sporty

feel.

However, the Corolla

hybrid can’t be considered

a quick car, but it

will return a standstill to

100km/h acceleration time

of 11sec, which suggests

that it still has respectable

speed, which we have come

to expect from hybrids and

electric vehicles in total.

It seems a long time ago

that Corolla relinquished

its mantle as New Zealand’s

top-selling motor vehicle,

a position it held for many

years.

Of course, as history has

served to prove, utes are

now the vehicles of choice

for our market, however,

what Toyota has done with

Corolla means it is still

fighting to get that top spot

back, the hybrid is a clever

piece of kit, and it is a car

which you just drive as

normal and wonder where

the difference between it

and the standard model

lies; that is until you go to

fill up and the savings will

immediately be obvious.

If you are in the market

for a new car and the idea

of hybrid appeals to you

but ZR specification is out

of range, there’s a low-spec

GX model which would

probably be my choice at

$32,990. Take into account,

too, that each of these cars

is at least $10,000 cheaper

than the Prius, which, to my

way of thinking, represents

great value.

As an aside, also take into

account there is an eightyear/160,000km

battery

warranty.

Sport

A man of marathons, meditation, music

Vajin Armstrong has

run close to 10,000km

across the 21 countries

he has visited this

year to date. The ultramarathon

runner has

recently returned to

Christchurch for the

summer after a busy

winter season in the

Northern Hemisphere.

Gordon Findlater

reports

MOST PEOPLE would think

you’d need to be mad to run

close to 250km across six days

in the Sahara Desert. However,

that was a bucket list moment

for Vajin Armstrong in April

when he finished eighth at the

Marathon des Sables.

The event in southern Morocco

is widely regarded as the world’s

toughest foot race. To add to

the challenge it is self-sufficient

meaning Armstrong had to

carry everything he needed for

the entire race on his back.

Half the challenge of the event

came down to what to pack in

your backpack which had to

carry a minimum weight of

6.5kg.

A decision on what weight

sleeping blanket to take for the

surprisingly cold nights in the

Sahara or whether or not to pack

a gas cooker played a big role in

the race. Adding an 8kg pack to

his 60kg frame was noticeable

early for Armstrong who battled

with shoulder pains on the first

evening. He says most of the

elite runners choose not to take a

cooking device.

“For me you take your freeze

dried meal, mix it with water

and put it out in the sun. You’d

leave it out there for an hour or

so and it would get hot enough

. . . it was never a culinary treat

but you’re just trying to get the

calories back in,” said Armstrong.

Armstrong finished the race

in a total time of 22hr 36min. Of

the 1078 entrants 934 finished

the race.

“I found it be a really

transformative experience.”

“We all have a lot more

strength and capacity than we

often are aware of, because we

never get challenged or pushed

far enough where we have to

bring forward that strength we

have within us.”

Armstrong had success as a

teenager with middle distance

running but became disconnected

with running until

he completed his first ultramarathon

in 2009. He then went

onto win his first of three Kepla

Challenge titles in 2010 and has

been racking up races of huge

distance since.

He now trains between 20-25

hours a week where he clocks up

anywhere around 200km.

The other highlight of the

recent Northern Hemisphere

trip was third place finish at the

renowned Gornergrat Zermatt

Marathon in Switzerland. It was

Armstrong’s fourth time competing

in the race but first time

he had finished on the podium.

“You start at 1000m above sea

level and finish at about 2500m.”

SCENERY:

Armstrong

on his way

to a second

place finish

in the 85km

Swiss alpine

marathon in

July. (Above):

Armstrong at

his St Asaph

St music

store where

he imports

and sells

instruments.

Armstrong has already lined

up his next bucket list event – the

Comrades Marathon in South

Africa. The event in June will see

25,000 runners take on the 90km

course between Durban and

Pietermaritzburg which has been

run annually since 1921.

“My goal now with my running

is to travel, visit new places,

share and connect experiences

and meet new people.”

His job also has an international

flavour. Armstrong

imports and sells musical instruments

from all parts of the world

at his store – Gandharva Loka –

in St Asaph St.

Another big part of Armstrong’s

life has been meditation.

“For me meditation really

helps with running. One of the

big limiting factors when you’re

out there for a long time is your

own mind. Often your mind

gives up before your body does.”

Given the name Luke at

birth, Armstrong later took the

spiritual name, Vajin, which was

given by his meditation teacher

Sri Chinmoy. The name means

Strong, spirited and heroic.

“He gave me that name in 2007

just before he passed away . . .

the idea with the name is to give

you inspiration to aspire towards

bringing some of those qualities

to the fore.”

Targa title for

father and son

CHRISTCHURCH father and son

team Stewart and Rory Callaway

returned home with the production

four-wheel-drive overall title, based

on the results of the two Targa

rallies held this year.

At the Targa NZ held in Otago

and Southland last week the pair

finished eighth overall and first in

the production 4WD class. Their

overall time of 3hr 43min 12sec saw

them pip Andy Oakley and Steve

Hutchins in their Audi A4 by nearly

3min.

Last year was the pair’s first Targa

showing, when they finished 23rd

and shared the driving. This year,

Rory, 25, the youngest driver in the

field, took hold of the steering wheel.

The overall title was won by

the Auckland pairing of Glenn

Inkster and Spencer Winn in their

Mitsubishi Evo 8 in a time of 3hr

29min 13sec.

Near perfect record for golfers

CANTERBURY’S MEN’S and

Playing at Invercargill the

individual performances by

Hillary O’Connor, Amy Weng,

Meanwhile, the men – playing

UC stars in Crusaders

• By Gordon Findlater

IT’S A case of coming through

the system for the new faces in

the Crusaders 38-man squad

which was named at Rugby Park

yesterday for the 2019 Super

Rugby season.

New Crusaders signings Ngane

Punivai, Leicester Faingaanuku

and Harry Allen have all been on

the Crusaders radar since their

time at secondary school playing

in the UC Championship - having

all previously played for the

Crusaders under-18 team.

Faingaanuku, 18, has been

part of the Crusaders academy

since 15 when he was a year-11

student at Nelson College.

“I was fortunate enough last

year to come in and experience

the environment with the Crusaders.

To get the phone call this

year and be told I was going to

be part of the Crusaders family

was a dream come true,” said

Faingaanuku.

The winger was unable to

feature much for Tasman in

the Mitre 10 Cup due to injury.

However, the Crusaders coaching

staff has big wraps on him.

His fellow Crusaders and Tasman

teammate Will Jordan has

also believed Faingaanuku was

destined for big things when

we first came up against him at

secondary school level.

“He was a big boy back then

and I think he probably ran over

me a few times. I know he’ll have

a really great year,” said Jordan.

YOUNGSTER: Leicester Faingaanuku is a player Scott

Robertson hopes can fill the void left by powerful winger Seta

Tamanivalu.

Christ’s College product

Punivai is another exciting

young back to make the step up

to Super Rugby for the first time.

The 20-year-old admitted to not

being able to hold back the tears

when he received the news he

had made the squad. He was also

quick to point out one person in

particular who had helped him

get to this stage of his career.

“My dad,” said Punivai.

“He’s been there right from

the younger grades. Home or

away games he will always be

there and give me his two cents.

Sometime’s I’ll take it on board,

but he’s been my rock and always

supported me.”

from secondary school. The

Make the punishment fit the crime

IT ONLY seems like yesterday

when Australian cricket was

thrown into turmoil due to the

ball tampering incident in South

Africa in March which saw

Cameron Bancroft rub sandpaper

on the match ball to try and create

an unfair advantage for his side.

Since then Bancroft was given

a ninemonth ban while Australian

captain Steve Smith and

David Warner were handed what

still to me feel like slap on the

wrist 12-month bans. However,

after a recent scathing independent

review of Cricket Australia,

there have been calls to reduce

the bans on Smith and Warner,

and instead heap a larger share

of the responsibility for the incident

onto the organisation itself.

Are we forgetting the fact

these guys planned and executed

an operation where sandpaper

was concealed and bought onto

the field of play to alter the ball.

When it comes to creating

an unfair advantage which will

cause the ball to generate extra

swing through the air is surely

about as high on the spectrum

as you can go, so why didn’t the

bans reflect this?

Let’s look at some of cricket’s

other famous bans over the years

to give a bit of perspective.

In 2003 Shane Warne was

given a 12-month ban from the

Australian Cricket Board for using

a banned drug Moduretic – a

fluid-reduction tablet – which

him the ban accepted would not

have enhanced Warne’s performance.

In 2010 Pakistan pace bowler

Mohammad Amir bowled three

no-balls in a test against England

in a spot-fixing scandal which

saw him banned for five years.

When it comes to match-fixing

a staunch stance has been taken

by international cricket and

countless former players.

We saw this unfold for Lou

Vincent who was given a life ban

in 2014 for purposely underperforming

for money. Yes, what

he did got what at the time felt

like the right treatment. None of

this happened at the game’s elite

level and mostly in a rebel league

in Pakistan.

His case also has somewhat

of a “don’t worry everyone is

doing it” when it came to why he

chose the actions he did – much

like the Tour de France doping

scandals. We seem to be obsessed

when it comes to bans on

anything we feel like we know is

widely happening but struggle to

prove. It seems we’re obliged to

hand out the maximum

penalty to send a message.

Is that the right approach to

have when Bancroft, Smith and

Warner got a slap on the wrist?

For me in cricket, the impact

of bowling a handful of no balls

in a test match or a player being

on a performance enhancing

drug v using sandpaper to generate

swing throughout an entire

match aren’t even in the same

league when it comes to the outcome

they will have on a match,

so why don’t we have the same

approach when it comes to their

punishments.

Licensed Agent REAA 2008

When you’re selling a property you get to

decide how the open home process is run. If you’re

working with a real estate agent, this is will be

part of the marketing plan that you agree upon

with them before you sign the agency agreement.

The real estate agent will advise you on the

timing and frequency of open homes, or any other

viewings. If there is anything you are uncertain

about, talk to the agent and make your feelings

clear. There’s no law that you have to have open

homes – you may decide that you’d rather have

viewings by appointment only.

“Bear in mind though that in order to sell

your home, people will have to see it,” says Kevin

Lampen-Smith, chief executive of the Real Estate

Authority (REA). “You may have to be flexible

on when viewings are held, even if they are not

particularly convenient.”

When it comes to the marketing and selling

process of your home it’s a good idea to look at

things from the perspective of the real estate

agent and any prospective purchaser, Lampen-

Smith says.

“Open homes often attract people who are just

browsing to see what’s around, or neighbours who

have always wanted to see what ‘that house at

number 10’ is like. The agent will report back to

you after the open home to let you know the level of

interest – if they have kept an electronic or paper

record of visitors it will give you an indication of

how many visitors were sticky beaks from down the

street.”

In an ideal world, people will treat your home

with respect when viewing it, he says.

“If you suspect they will need reminding,

request that the agent asks visitors to remove

any wet weather gear or shoes before entering.

What you need to know about Open

Homes when you’re selling a property

Most people go on a major cleaning, tidying and

de-cluttering mission before putting a property

on the market, which will make it much easier to

prepare it for an open home. It’s a good idea to

clear away any valuables or personal items (if time

is short, dump them all in a washing basket that

you can pick up and take with you) and use your

own common sense about what you want strangers

to see.”

Don’t shove things into cupboards or wardrobes

– prospective buyers will be keen to gauge storage

capacity. Remember that families with small

children could be going through your property and

delicate ornaments or family heirlooms might be

better out of harm’s way.

Selling a property can be a stressful time, but

you’ll make it much easier on yourself if you work

out a plan of attack, including getting the advice

of professionals along the way, Lampen-Smith

says.

“Present your home well and it’s more likely to

attract another set of owners.”
