THE FAMILY of the 37-year-old

who died after a charity boxing

match says the support for them

has been humbling.

Yesterday, Kain Parsons’ life

support was turned off.

Mr Parsons, a project manager

for Versatile Garages, was

knocked unconscious in his bout

at the Fight for Christchurch at

Horncastle Arena. He was not

wearing protective head gear.

He never regained consciousness.

A Givealittle page set up to

support his wife, Alana and their

three children, had raised more

than $30,000 by yesterday.

Mr Parsons’ family said in a

statement yesterday that

he succumbed to his brain

injury.

“We wish to acknowledge and

thank the amazing team in the

ICU ward at Christchurch Hospital,

the paramedics at the event,

along with the many doctors,

nurses and medical professionals

who left their tables to quickly

come to Kain’s aid.

The outpouring of heartfelt

support from family, friends,

colleagues and the public has

been humbling and very much

appreciated.”

The family said Mr Parsons

gave his life in the pursuit of

raising money for those less

fortunate. He was fighting to

raise money for Conductive

Education.

“His enormous heart, selfless

attitude and gentle giant nature

will leave a void in the lives of so

many.”

His death will be referred to

the Coroner.

Event operator Callam Mitchell

said everyone is devastated by Mr

Parsons’ death.

A CANTERBURY University law

student being investigated for a

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

It is understood it is no the

The Star has been told it is a

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

Investigation into electrocution continues

• By Sophie Cornish

THE investigation continues

been electrocuted on Friday

at a commercial property on

Victoria St.

WorkSafe is investigating the

Armistice billboard saved

Pulled from

a rubbish

burn-off in

the 1940s

• By Anan Zaki

WHEN RETIRED wool

merchant Keith Whitfield was at

a rubbish burn-off in the 1940s,

he saw a distinct piece of paper.

It was a billboard for The Star,

announcing the Armistice on

November 12, 1918 (NZ time),

which marked the end of World

War 1.

Mr Whitfield, 88, asked the

owner of the billboard if he could

keep it.

“He was just going to throw it

into the fire and I said ‘hey, I’ll

have that’,” he said.

“I thought it might be worth

hanging onto, not knowing I

would be here a 100 years from

the date of it.”

Mr Whitfield, who lives in

Fendalton, framed it and loaned

it to the Papanui RSA about 20

years ago, where it is still on

display.

His father Alex and his two

uncles, Harold and Herb, all

served in WW1. The three

Whitfield brothers all survived

the war. They served in France

and Egypt.

The Star understands

the investigation will

look into electrical

safeguards at the site

where Mr Uri-Ke died,

which are meant to

prevent electrocutions

when there is a problem

by switching off all

power to the building.

A funeral was held for Mr

his whole life,” he said.

Mr Whitfield never got the

chance to show the poster to

his father but it served as a

reminder of his contribution to

the country.

“Because my father fought in

the war, it’s a memoir of him

when I come to the RSA,” he

said.

Mr Whitfield said the RSA

was the best place to keep the

poster and does not intend to

sell it for profit. He has read The

Star his whole life. “It’s my sole

source of news, I enjoy it because

everything is local.”

Lane changes

for Main

South Rd

• By Anan Zaki

MOTORISTS TRAVELLING on

Main South and Springs Rds will

see some changes this week.

All traffic on Main South Rd

was switched to the newly-laid

northbound lanes between

Hoskyns and Robinsons Rd yesterday.

New Zealand Transport Agency

said the changes were done in

stages, city bound traffic first, followed

by southbound traffic.

Meanwhile, motorists on

Springs Rd, near the Halswell

Junction Rd roundabout will have

to use a temporary diversion road.

A U-turn facility has been built

to maintain access to businesses in

the area.

NZTA previously announced

that a lane switch on Main South

Rd would be done in August but

that was delayed due to additional

work.

Contractors built the final

pavement under bridges, which removed

the need for an additional

traffic switch in the future, NZTA

said.

The changes are part of the

ongoing construction of the $195

million Christchurch Southern

Motorway stage two.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Another big Port Hills fire looms

• By Julia Evans

ANOTHER MAJOR fire on the

Port Hills will happen.

That’s the stark warning from

an agricultural expert who says

the vegetation on the hills is a

powder keg.

Lincoln University’s Derrick

Moot said active management of

the area was needed to prevent

future events like the Port Hills

fires, which burned for 66 days

last year. Helicopter pilot Steve

Askin crashed and died while

fighting the blaze.

Two separate

fires on Early

Valley Rd and

Marleys Hill

combined to

one, destroying

nine houses and

significantly

Derrick Moot

damaging two.

An investigation

concluded

that both fires were possibly deliberately

lit, though it was listed

as undetermined.

But Dr Moot said in his opinion,

the fire could have easily

spread further and taken out

more homes.

“We’re very fortunate we didn’t

get a southerly. It went from a

nor’west to a nor’east, but could

have quite easily blown down to a

lot more housing,” he said.

They were devastating enough

as it was for the people involved

and we lost someone. But this

was a warning that we need to

have active management of the

peripheral area.”

Dr Moot said simple things such

as maintaining grass growth and

grazing would significantly reduce

the likelihood of another fire.

“We need someone to take responsibility

of the area, whether

that be the Christchurch City

Council, Selwyn District Council

or Environment Canterbury.

There needs to be guidelines for

land owners.”

Dr Moot said if NIWA’s prediction

for a hot, dry November

came through the grass and

weather in the wider Port Hills

area would be in an identical

state as they were before the fires.

He said the effects of climate

change also have an impact.

Rural firefighter Richard

McNamara, who led the aerial

assault on the fire said there was

always the potential for another

disaster given the “fuels” that

were up on the Port Hills.

There’s always been fires up

DANGER: Ken and Denise McKenzie were lucky their home

was spared in the Port Hills fire of 2017.

there but the issue is that our

urban dwellings are pushing further

up and also climate change.

We’re going to start having hotter,

drier summers,” he said.

Mr McNamara said it was up

to those who live in the area to

understand the risk as he said

management would be hard to

enforce.

Fire and Emergency New

Zealand manager rural fire Tim

Mitchell said there was not a one

size fits all solution.

“It’s not an easy problem to

resolve. You’ve got to think of the

context of each landowner,” he

said.

Mr Mitchell said if landowners

needed help the councils, FENZ

and other organisations would

Cars still rule the city commute

Fire rages, homes at risk

LESS THAN half of residents

find travelling by car easy in the

city and are happy with the state

of roads and foothpaths.

The Life is Christchurch Transport

Survey shows 45 per cent of

people find travelling by car easy

in the city, which is an 11 per

cent improvement on last year.

While 43 per

cent are happy

with the roads

and about 33

per cent are

happy with the

footpaths.

The survey –

Karleen

Edwards

commissioned

by city council

– sought 3000

views on the ease of travelling

around the city, safety, and the

modes used.

Seventeen per cent use their

car less than 12 months ago, 14

per cent are more likely to cycle

and 16 per cent are more likely

to walk.

Public transport use is also up,

with 11 per cent saying they use

the bus more often than a year

ago.

Cyclists have reported a significant

improvement, with 63 per

cent saying it is easy to travel by

bike, up nine per cent on 2017.

A third feel safe when cycling, up

11 per cent on the previous year.

More people feel safer on public

transport and while waiting

for a bus. Pedestrians are also

happier, with 74 per cent feeling

safe, up five per cent on 2017.

Walking tops the satisfaction

poll, with 76 per cent finding that

easy in the city and about half

feeling safe.

About a third are satisfied with

the city’s footpaths and pedestrian

areas.

However, about 60 per cent of

respondents are unhappy with

Christchurch’s roads, citing

potholes, surface problems and

ongoing patch repairs.

In general, while cars still rule

the road, people are finding it

easier to use other transport

modes.

City council chief executive

Karleen Edwards said the survey

shows residents’ views on transport

are changing, with more

people open to public transport,

cycling, walking and sharing

urban space.

She said the results are encouraging

because they show

that people are starting to see the

benefits of the transport changes

that have been made.

But there were challenges with

the condition of some of roads,

Dr Edwards added.

GETTING AROUND:

While cars are still the

preferred mode of

transport, more people

are using buses, cycling

and walking around the

city.

Pascoe signs up to get Megan to Paris

Cancer sufferer Megan Hore is getting closer to

ticking off another Disneyland from her bucket list.

Meanwhile, artist Rangi Downes who has helped

MEGAN HORE is one step

closer to ticking Disneyland Paris

off her bucket list as the country’s

most successful Paralympian

Sophie Pascoe has supported the

cause.

The 18-year-old daughter of

blind organist Richard Hore had

been battling bone cancer for

about a year and set herself the

goal of going to every Disneyland

around the world.

To help her fundraising efforts,

artist Rangi Downes painted four

paintings of Mickey Mouse and

Megan (left) said it was “absolutely

amazing” that Pascoe,

joined All Black great Richie

McCaw and world champion

shot-putter Tom Walsh in signing

the paintings.

The paintings will be auctioned

off on Trade Me from next week

and money put towards the

Hore’s trip to Paris.

“I’m not one of those people

who puts myself out there a lot

and yet people like this are coming

out to help me,” Megan said.

But she will be back in hospital

every three months for the next

five years to test for cancer cells.

If cancer is found, her diagnosis

will become terminal.

Megan said people like Walsh,

to keep her own sporting dreams

alive.

“I’m a rock-climber and a dancer.

They remind me that I can still

do those things,” she said.

If she gets the all clear, Megan

will be back climbing by the end

of the year.

The family has tentatively set a

plan to go over to Europe in April.

“That’s when mum’s on holiday

and I’m on holiday. We just need

to get clearance from the hospital

to go for that long,” Megan said.

They plan to spend almost a

As well as Paris, they will

travel around the United Kingdom.

Artist reunites with ‘family’

• By Julia Evans

IT’S BEEN 65 years since artist

Rangi Downes has heard from

the family that took him under

their wing when he was 12.

But after an article about

him creating Mickey Mouse

paintings to help support cancer

sufferer Megan Hore in The Star,

the 77-year-old was reunited

with the daughters of Kathleen

Higgs, who helped him when his

adopted family fell ill.

Downes said he got a phone

call out of the blue.

“She said do you still have the

little red bike that you used to

ride to the pictures,” he said.

“I said who is this but she

wouldn’t tell me, she said you

have to guess.”

Downes said he worked out

it could only be one of the

daughters of Mrs Higgs, Gloria

Dawson.

While he had never lived

with Mrs Higgs and her six children,

he said he was there most

days helping her out for three

years.

Downes’ adopted parents and

brother all fell ill when he was

11 and 12. His mother died of

stomach cancer, while his father

“dropped dead” on the way out

of a medical examination, which

he’d passed with flying colours.

After that it was Mrs Higgs

who filled the gap.

There were so many time

were Mrs Higgs spoke to me

about life in general. She was a

good woman. No one ever went

hungry,” he said.

But after three years with the

family, Downes fell ill of tuberculosis

himself and was bound to

his bed. They lost touch.

“It’s been about 65 years since

I’ve heard from these people.

They don’t understand how

much I’ve thought of them since

then,” he said.

A friend of Mrs Dawson sent

SKILLED:

the article from The Star up to

her home in the Bay of Islands

and from there, she got in touch

with Downes.

Downes said he’d sent her a

package of clippings, news articles

and photos.

“I’ve sent some cuttings up to

the Bay of Islands. We’ve got a

lot to catch up on, it’s been 65

years,” he said.

In the mean time, Downes

will also be heading to Westport

soon to catch up with Mrs

Dawson’s sister Joan.

“It’s so lovely to be back in

touch with them,” he said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

High density housing not for everyone

• By Julia Evans

LONG-TERM residents in the

central city are worried about the

impact the huge influx of high

density apartments is having on

the community.

THeir lack of parking, size

and the short-term renters they

attract are worrying central city

neighbourhood groups.

Moa

Neighbourhood

Group chairman

Barry Brooker

said the number

high density

apartments is

“symptomatic”

Barry

Brooker

of a bigger issue.

“Developers

are getting on

and doing something, it’s just

the working code is pushing a

certain type of housing.”

THose houses lacked parking

and appealed largely to short

term renters or investors who

used them for online listings.

Dr Brooker said it was the mix

of different housing that appealed

for both short and long-term

residents.

Chester Street East

Community member Simone

Rewa Pearson said the main

question was whether the mix

HOUSING: High density developments like those of Williams Corporation are concerning

long-term residents in the central city.

of housing stock was meeting

needs.

“People say they want to have

a mix of housing stock in central

city to bring in a wide variety of

people and living arrangements

including singles, professionals,

families and seniors. But what

seems to be being built is just

one kind housing – high density

apartments,” she said.

“Is this what we want? And

who is buying the apartments

and for what purpose? Owner

occupiers or investors?”

Victoria Neighbourhood

Association co-ordinator

Marjorie Manthei said a lot of

new developments were not being

lived in by the owner at all.

“THere are small sections that

end up without a neighbourhood.

It’s a domino effect. You have

no neighbours and no one is

committed to the area,” she said.

However, Williams

Corporation managing director

Matthew Horncastle, which is

developing houses in the central

city, dismissed the concerns.

“Imagine being in New York

and someone says we don’t want

a high-rise there. We’re trying to

build a city.”

He said it was “silly” and only a

few people had an issue.

“Meanwhile, I’ve got 20 people

a day ringing, trying to buy

houses in the central city.”

Central Ward city councillor

Deon Swiggs said it needed to be

investigated.

“We need to look at what the

wider effects of the developments

are and if there are any

unintended consequences to

that,” he said.

“It’s about problem

identification. If there’s a

problem, we’ll look at solutions.

That could be from a District

Plan angle or it could be

something else.”

But he was happy with the

amount of new builds.

“We are not going to send

the wrong message to developers.

Its about how we do this

together.”

A city council staff report,

which went to the regulatory

performance committee meeting

yesterday said changes to the

District Plan might be used to

manage potential negative effects

from sites like Airbnb.

“THe District Plan rules may

be encouraging the development

of a typology of housing in

the central city that does not

promote positive inner city living

outcomes over the long-term and

could discourage new residents

from moving to the inner city,”

it said.

“We need to find out what the

issues are, what solutions could

be and then we need to work out

how we enforce that,” Cr Swiggs

said.

“THere are things like fire

regulations, putting the bins

out. All commercial properties

are changed for water. There’s

a lot of things that need to be

considered.”

But before any changes to

the plan are made, a business

rate could be applied from

July 1 on places where whole

units are used as short-term

accommodation for four or

more months a year.

Where fun, food and family

feature high on the menu

The Malis Khmer Thai Restaurant at 501

Wairakei Road in Burnside is an exciting addition

to the dining scene in Christchurch. They offer an

authentic Southeast-Asian culinary experience

and the highly-trained staff are happy to share

their in-depth knowledge of Thai and Cambodian

food and culture with customers. A year down the

track since it opened, this vibrant, contemporary

eatery is now well-established as the perfect

fusion of delicious food and modern, relaxed

dining. The restaurant takes its name from one of

the national flowers of Cambodia, the highlyfragrant

malis (Jasminium sambac). Owner Pic

Thai named her restaurant

after it in recognition of

its beauty and cultural

significance. The malis

is woven into garlands

to decorate homes and

temples and as offerings

to the Buddha.

As you enter, you are

greeted by a manager,

sometimes Pic herself,

who welcomes you and your party and makes you

feel that you are very much part of the extended

family. The atmosphere is bright, lively and very

friendly; the décor is cheerful and combines a

sense of Asia with very funky, metal bambooinspired

screens, and a scrupulously-clean,

minimalist feel. Overall, as soon as you take your

seat, whether you are in a large group or with a

small family, you feel relaxed and at home.

There is a fresh approach to the kitchen with

new chef Eddie having spent the last month

bringing his talent, expertise and his 30 years’

experience as a chef and a head chef in Thailand

and New Zealand to the kitchen. Although

currently the focus is exclusively Thai, Pic also

plans to bring in a Cambodian chef to add to the

menu.

Malis Khmer Thai is definitely the venue for

celebrations – the chilled vibe, the efficient

service, and the great food make it perfect for

parties, and the large space is adaptable enough

to accommodate large and small groups. Adding

to the party atmosphere, karaoke will be coming

soon, so diners will have the chance to show off

their singing talents and make their evening out as

much about fun and the

atmosphere as it is about

the meal. The yummy

cocktail menu is a great

and they have a range of

wines, beers, soft drinks

and spirits for all palates.

Of course, the food is

the most important part

of the Malis Khmer Thai

experience. It is delicious, fresh, and as spicy as

you want and has all the traditional staples of Thai

cuisine such as soups, noodle and rice dishes,

curries, satays and salads. They offer gluten- and

dairy-free options too and are proudly MSG-free.

Sounds delicious? Then they can bring the taste of

RIDING: Lime scooter-related ACC claims in Christchurch have soared since

they were released last month.

Huge jump in number

of e-scooter injuries

• By Ashleigh Monk

LIME scooter-related

injuries have skyrocketed

since their first week on

Christchurch roads, but

that could change as New

Zealand-specific app is set

to be released.

ACC recorded five Lime

scooter-related injuries in

the week after they hit the

streets – that number is

now 32.

Fifty-seven claims have

been recorded in Auckland,

and less than four across

the rest of New Zealand.

At a city council meeting

on Wednesday it was

announced that an app

would be available for

download “in a few days”

which would have clear

rules and regulations for

the e-scooters.

In the first two weeks

since their October 15

launch, the city council

reported more than 65,000

Lime trips between more

than 27,000 riders.

THe average distance

travelled was 1km, with

the trip time at 10min and

speed at 6km/h.

THe number of e-scooter

injuries compared to

manual scooter injuries

was vastly different, with

61 in Christchurch and 171

in Auckland since the Lime

scooters were released.

ACC senior injury

prevention specialist

Kirsten Malpas said that

while the e-scooters offered

a “great way” to get around,

riders had to be careful of

how they used them.

Electric scooters are

an innovative solution

to modern commuting

challenges and can provide

a great way to make your

commute active,” she said.

“Wearing a helmet,

limiting speed, keeping

to road rules are standard

mechanisms for keeping

safe.”

She advised riders who

had accidents to make

sure they sought medical

attention.

“If people take a knock

to the head, it’s important

that they recognise the

symptoms of concussion

and let a medical

professional make an

assessment and diagnosis.

Late onset after an injury is

common.”

Senior Sergeant Ash Tabb

could not be reached for

comment, but previously

said police were monitoring

scooter use.

“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

The Star

as possible,” he said.

THe ride-sharing

initiative was launched in

California last year and has

since spread to more than

80 cities across the globe.

Two e-scooter-related

deaths have so far been

recorded in the United

States – one in Dallas

where a man fell off a

scooter and died from

blunt force trauma to

the head, and one in

Washington DC where a

man was pulled under a

sport utility vehicle.

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 threemonth

mobile trading

permit for the scooters,

which would expire

on January 15 and be

reviewed.

A New Zealand

Transport Agency

spokeswoman said a

transport review to look

into rules for electric

scooter-riders was being

planned.

Councils invest in Te Reo Maori classes

• By Anan Zaki

COUNCILS IN Canterbury

are spending thousands of

dollars to teach their staff and

elected representatives Te Reo

Maori.

Environment Canterbury

lead the way with fortnightly

classes running since March

last year. The regional council

spent $53,425 on Te Reo

classes.

Currently 127 staff and

councillors are currently taking

part in the programme, ECan

said. 203 staff and councillors

have taken part since the

beginning

Said an ECan spokeswoman:

“Prior to 2017, the majority of

staff and governance had little or

no experience of Te Reo Maori,

or understanding of matauranga

Maori/Maori knowledge, and

the value this brings to our

work as kaitiaki/stewards of the

environment.”

Usage of Te Reo Maori is

now “business as usual,” ECan

said.

The city councill started

providing Te Reo Maori lessons

to staff and elected officials in

‘A sense of belonging and pride’

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board member

Catherine Chu is part of the

city council’s classes and is

enjoying the experience.

Ms Chu started learning Te

Reo Maori last month.

“I love it. The first session

was really slow because everyone

is at different levels,”

she said.

“I went in with the

expectation to just learn

the language itself but [we

are learning] the history and culture,

which I think is quite meaningful,” Ms

Chu said.

July last year. It has so far spent

$26,981.

Currently, 72 staff and elected

officials are taking part in the

programme.

Since classes started last

year, 250 staff and elected

officials have previously

participated.

Lessons are undertaken by a

qualified teacher and overseen

by the council’s Ngai Tahu and

Maori relationships team, a city

council spokeswoman said.

She said she wanted to learn Te

Reo Maori because it was “our

heritage.”

“I think it will help us gain a

sense of belonging and pride,”

Ms Chu said.

She can already speak four

languages – English, Korean,

Chinese and Japanese.

“My parents are from

South Korea, [at university]

my major was

Chinese and my minor

was Japanese.”

Ms Chu said she intends to keep

learning Te Reo Maori until she

becomes fluent.

These courses assist staff

and elected members to fulfil

their obligations under the

Local Government Act and

other legislation in relation

to Maori interaction and

contribution to relationships

and decision making

processes.”

The city council has

received positive feedback

from the participants, she

said.

The Selwyn District Council is

the latest to join the group, with

classes starting in August.

The district council has spent

$5000 on the programme with 44

staff and elected members in the

programme.

The district council has so

far held 20 hours of classes and

a council spokesman said the

classes are “extremely

valuable”.

Waimakariri District Council

did not respond to questions

from The Star.

Big jump in number of police pursuits

Fire rages, homes at risk

The number of police

pursuits in Canterbury

has almost doubled

in the past five years.

Sophie Cornish talks to

road policing manager

Senior Sergeant Ash

Tabb to find out why

IN 2013, there were 167 fleeing

driver incidents in Canterbury.

Last year it jumped to 348.

And for the first six months of

this year there were 171.

Since the beginning of 2015,

28 people have died as a result

of police chases in New Zealand

and 154 people have been seriously

injured.

Since 2013 only one person has

died in Canterbury metro area.

There is no one reason why

people may flee

from police, as

each incident

is unique, says

Senior Sergeant

Ash Tabb.

There may be

certain individuals

who always

Ash Tabb

flee every time

police stop them.

If that person is out and about a

lot in the roading network, then

that can increase. There can be

various reasons, each one of

them is unique.”

In 60 per cent of fleeing driver

events the driver is located, he

said and the rest are unknown.

While there is an increase in

the events, Senior Sergeant Tabb

said there is a bigger increase in

police self-abandoning pursuits.

“We actually choose to abandon

more than we used to. There

is an oversight through the communications

centre and other

supervisors but we want staff to

make the decision if they don’t

feel its safe. Basically, if there

is greater risk from continuing

than the actual risk of following

then we want them to stop.”

A risk assessment tool is

END OF THE ROAD: Police stopped this fleeing motorist in Cranford St in July after he had

driven on the wrong side of the road, nearly hitting a cyclist. He continued to flee even

after his tyres had been spiked and eventually when caught, had to be tasered by police.

used, which looks at the threat

including exposure to the public,

threats to the driver and police

staff and necessity.

“We have to ask whether we

have other means of locating the

person,” Senior Sergeant Tabb

said.

“A lot of these are stolen cars

and we don’t know what else is

going on in the vehicle. A lot

of times we will stop the car

and there will be other offences

SERIOUS PURSUITS

•Last year, a car carrying

five people crashed into a

tree during a police pursuit

in Auckland. A 25-year-old

woman and a 29-year-old

were killed.

•In May, a teenager died in

the boot of a car that was

carrying six passengers in

Wellington. The 15-year-old

died after the car crashed,

when the driver failed to

stop for police. Also in May,

a Bay of Plenty man died

after trying to flee police

and crashing into a tree.

•In July, a police pursuit

ended in a vehicle pile-up

in St Albans in an attempt

to stop a 37-year-old. A

patrol car was used to block

the vehicle, ending the

pursuit. The car’s tyres were

slashed and police had to

taser the driver.

•In August, a stolen vehicle

was spiked in Yaldhurst

after the driver failed to

stop for police. The Toyota

Hilux ended up overturning

onto its roof.

•In September, a teenager

reached speeds of up to

160km/h in an attempt to

evade police. The pursuit

ended shortly after the

driver spun out of control

and then ran out of petrol

in Ohoka. Two passengers

had been in the car.

•Last month, two men

were arrested after they

crashed a stolen car into a

cellphone tower control box

following a police pursuit in

Mairehau.

BY THE NUMBERS:

metro area (south of the

Waimakariri River to

Governors Bay and west

to Hornby)

2015 – 269

2016 – 269

2017 – 348

detected. Ultimately, it’s that

balance of protecting the public,

which is obviously the number

one thing.”

How the pursuits start is also

a mixed bag, it could begin from

a routine traffic stop, where a

driver could be suspected of

drink driving or speeding and

they choose not to stop.

Other times a member of

the public or police staff have

reported someone driving erratically

and police will attempt to

stop them.

“If it is a matter where we know

who the driver is, it would be

very rare for us to get involved

in a pursuit event, unless the offending

was very serious, because

ultimately we would prefer to

locate them out of the vehicle,

rather than in a vehicle,” said

Senior Sergeant Tabb.

The most serious consequence

for a fleeing driver is death or serious

injury to either themselves,

or others.

Through the courts, charges

can include licence disqualifications,

vehicles being impounded

and even imprisonment.

Road spikes are deployed

regularly in pursuits and can be

an “effective tool” when used

properly and in a controlled environment,

Senior Sergeant Tabb

said.

There are constraints on

them. You cannot use them

for certain vehicle types and in

certain locations. The staff have

to make sure the public is safe if

they are used, as the vehicle can

lose some control. Every incident

is really unique in terms of when

you can deploy them.”

His advice to people when they

are signalled to stop by police is

to pull over.

“It’s not worth putting lives

at risk. Regularly there are

cases where a person fails to

stop because they don’t have a

licence or have demerit points,

but nothing is worse the risk, it is

highly unpredictable.

Free bus travel cost

more than $65,000

FREE TRAVEL on the buses for

one day cost more than $65,000.

The event on September

22 saw a 60 per cent boost in

passengers with an additional

15,672 trips on the network.

The operational cost for

making the buses free across

was approximately $36,000.

This is based on the average

amount of revenue received for

Saturdays in the same period last

year,” Environment Canterbury

chief operating officer Nadeine

Dommisse said.

It cost $29,464 to promote

the campaign across Greater

Christchurch and Timaru, she

said.

Ms Dommisse said the

campaign was an “outstanding

success.”

The free buses were provided

as a way of starting a conversation

about the future focus of

plans for transport in the region

and gave us the opportunity to

reach a wide range of people.”

The event coincided with the

release of ECan’s Regional Public

Transport Plan and was aimed

at gathering feedback responses.

The plan proposes a shake up

As well as a rapid transport

Ms Dommisse said there were

more than 700 submissions on

the plan, which were currently

being analysed before the plan

New stadium turf

to cost $1.5 million

5 th to 11 th November 2018

• By Julia Evans

UPDATED: New turf will be installed at

Christchurch Stadium before next season’s

Super Rugby kicks off.

NEW TURF at

Christchurch Stadium will

cost $1.5 million.

Bulldozers started on the

ground last week. The grass

will be laid by January 25,

just over a week before

Phil Collins plays at the

stadium on February 4.

The first round of Super

Rugby starts on February 15.

The current turf included

an artificial turf product

providing root stabilisation

to the natural grass. That

artificial turf product was

not considered suitable to

get the field through a further

five years, which is the

standard period between

grass replacements on a

stadia field,” a city council

spokesperson said.

Therefore, with a grass

replacement due this

summer, the decision was

made to replace not just

the grass, but also the root

stabilisation system.”

The grass itself was last

replaced in 2013.

However, the root stabilisation

system dates back to

2006 and was used at Lancaster

Park before being

transferred to the current

stadium after the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

“That particular root

stabilisation system has

a standard life of 10 to

15 years, and given it has

experienced the additional

challenges of liquefaction

in 2011 and the transfer between

stadiums in 2012, it

has lasted as long as could

have been expected.”

The new root stabilisation

system is expected to

last for a further 15 years,

however, the grass will

need to be replaced every

five years.

The spokesperson said it

is “not likely” that the root

stabilisation system will

be transferred to the new

multi-use arena when it is

built in 2023.

More power to community boards

• By Julia Evans

COMMUNITY BOARDS may

be able to make more decisions

in their areas next year.

City councillor Sara

Templeton filed a notice of

motion at last week’s council

meeting, setting a timeframe of

March to have the delegation to

community boards changed.

She said community boards

need more power to make

• By Julia Evans

THERE SHOULD not be any

more unexpected revelations

from the city council.

It is working

to develop a ‘no

surprises’ policy

for staff and elected

members to make

sure everyone is fully

informed of issues

and events.

The intention of

a ‘no surprises’ approach

is to ensure

elected members and

staff are able to provide

residents with

accurate, timely and relevant

information on key issues or

decisions such as changing the

names of local parks or installing

crossings outside of

schools. They would also

be able to submit independently

on things like

applications to the district

licensing committee and

resource consents.

Head of community

support, governance and

partnerships John Filsell

said the city council made a

significant events,” city council

chief executive Karleen Edwards

said.

“In order to achieve this, staff

and elected members undertake

particular processes,

such as verbal briefings,

discussions and

formal reports.”

Dr Edwards said

many of the processes

were already in place.

“However, the

intention of the

work under way is

to make sure all staff

are aware of these

processes and that all

relevant information

is documented.”

A draft version of the policy is

resolution last July. “However,

research and work on this

topic extended back

before this time. Our

community support,

partnerships and

development staff have

been working on this

project since early 2016.”

Cr Templeton said the

project had been put on

the “back burner” but

had now become urgent.

Sara

‘No surprises’ plan for council

Karleen Edwards

not yet available, as staff are still

working on it.

Dr Edwards said no date has

been set for its presentation

to the city council or any

committees.

The policy’s development is

not related to the chlorination

of the city’s water or loss of its

secure status, she said.

“This is good practice in any

organisation and is not related to

any single event.”

An independent review examining

the events that led to the

city’s water being chlorinated

was released two weeks ago.

It criticised the way city council

staff did not inform top level

management about issues over

well heads.

Get your name on

the Walk of Stars

EMULATING the legendary

Hollywood Walk of Fame,

Christchurch City Mission’s

Walk of Stars is back again over

the Christmas season along ‘The

Terrace’.

With a focus on celebrating

people who are making a

difference at

Christmas by

supporting the

mission, anyone

can be part of

the Walk of

Stars on Oxford

Tce between

Hereford and

Cashel Sts.

The Walk of

Stars will be

in place from

November 30

to January 31 along what is sure

to be one of the most popular

summer spots in the city.

With the river on one side and

newly-developed restaurants

along the other, it is a prime

location for the Walk of Stars,

which will continue to grow over

the Christmas period.

Last year, Grace, 9, and Lily, 7,

were gifted a star by their mum.

When asked why they liked

being part of the Walk of Stars,

the pair said “because our star

can buy presents for kids who

don’t have any.”

Cayden, 4, and Mitchell, 6, also

had their names on the walk.

When asked the same question,

they said “because the mission

are Santa’s

special helpers.”

Over the

Christmas

period, the

mission will

see an increase

in demand for

support across

every one of its

services.

The foodbank

serves as a

prime example

of the need experienced across

the organisation. The number

of people using the foodbank

enters triple figures at this time of

year and help is needed to ensure

everyone can have a happy

Christmas.

of Stars and help others

over Christmas, get your

A CHOIR formed to bring joy

to the city post-earthquakes has

been scouted to perform at one

of the most iconic music venues

in the world.

The Christchurch Pops Choir

has been asked to perform at

Carnegie Hall in New York City

next year as

part of the

March 2019

season.

Forty singers

from the

Deke Sharon

choir will be

singing at

Total Vocal with Deke Sharon a

concert which features singers

from all over the world and celebrates

contemporary a cappella.

It will be led by American

singer and arranger Deke Sharon

and features celebrity guests to

Pitch Perfect and a cappella television

programme The Sing-Off.

Artistic director Matt

Everingham said it is such

a thrill for the choir to be

representing the city and New

Zealand in choral music in a new

and exciting way.

The choir will do a 10-day tour

– first stopping at Washington,

DC to perform at the

George Washington Masonic

National Memorial venue with

champion barbershop chorus Alexandria

Harmonizers and pop

chorus The Alexandria Singers. ​

It will then travel to New York

for the concert at Carnegie Hall

on March 24.

While overseas, it has prepared

a repertoire of New Zealand

songs to perform including

traditional Maori waiata, Dave

Dobbyn, Lorde and Crowded

said.

Located in the heart of

Manhattan, Carnegie Hall is one

of the most prestigious concert

venues in the world for classical

and modern music.

It first opened its doors

in 1891 with a concert

featuring Russian composer

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

Some of the world’s most wellknown

artists have performed

at the hall including The Beatles,

Lucky petrel released at Godley Head

• By Matt Salmons

A NORTHERN giant petrel

rescued on Sumner Beach last

week was released at Godley

Head on Sunday.

The aggressive scavengers,

also known

as stinkpots,

pāngurunguru

or sea vultures,

spend most of

their lives at sea.

Normally they

come ashore at

Annabel

Black

the Auckland,

Campbell,

Antipodes

and Chatham

islands to breed.

Sumner’s Annabel Black, who

found the “beautiful bird”, said

it was great to hear it had been

PHOTO: ANNABEL BLACK

released.

“First of all, it’s cool it wasn’t

hurt by another animal and that

it’s been released.”

The petrel refused to leave

during an earlier attempt to

release it on October 31.

South Island Wildlife Hospital

volunteer Karen Talbot said she

and a vet had tried to release the

bird above Lyttelton Harbour.

“We went to let it go . . . he

ran down the hill and then just

sat.”

Ms Talbot said the vet then

had to climb down and retrieve

the 5kg bird.

Wildlife hospital volunteers

spent the next four days feeding

fish to the bird and allowing it

rest as it had suspected minor

bruising on its leg.

Ms Talbot said high winds

may have blown the young bird

off course, causing it to crash

land in Sumner.

In spite of the wind on Sunday,

she said the release was a success.

“He just sat and smelt the wind.

But when we came back he was

gone.”

Ms Black said she was walking

with a friend when they spotted

the bird near the Sumner Surf

Life Saving Club.

“It looked like it had a sore

leg. I actually thought it was an

albatross at first . . . it was so big.”

The two women got a barrier

from a nearby construction site

to shield the distressed bird from

dogs and other predators.

RESCUED: This northern

giant petrel was rescued at

Sumner Beach last week

and nursed back to health by

South Island Wildlife Hospital

volunteers.

Lilian’s one of life’s true champs

Fire rages, homes at risk

Parklands teenager Lilian Exton is one of about 30 people

worldwide who suffer from otospondylomegaepiphyseal

dysplasia, also known as OSMED. Sophie Cornish talks to

Lilian about the barriers she has overcome and her recent

sporting success

EVERYDAY TASKS such as

putting on socks and shoes are

difficult for Lilian Exton.

But she has never let that stop

her from achieving as much as

she possibly can.

The 17-year-old lives with an

extremely rare growth disorder,

OSMED.

It affects the end of her bones,

where the joints are, so they

change shape and are enlarged.

When she was younger, Lilian

would grow 1cm every month,

twice as fast as her peers.

Now between 186-190cm tall

(her actual height is unknown

due to difficulty measuring her),

Lilian has been recognised at

the Zonta Sports Awards for the

most outstanding achievement

by a young sportswoman with a

disability. She competes at paraevents

all over New Zealand in

boccia and athletics. Boccia is an

adaptive sport for para-athletes,

similar to pentaque and bowls.

Earlier this year, Lilian won the

Canterbury secondary schools

boccia championships and South

Island boccia championships.

Previously she was named

‘emerging talent of the year’ at

the Parafed Canterbury 50th

Anniversary Sports Awards. She

was also named most improved

player of the year at the New

Zealand boccia nationals and

top female athlete at the Halberg

Junior Disability Games last year.

Lilian won both the discus

and shotput at the Canterbury

secondary schools competition

and took out the discus at the

South Island competition earlier

this year.

It was when Lilian was about

four-years-old that her parents

noticed some unusual signs.

Said Lilian’s mother Wendy

Exton: “It was a bit of a

rollercoaster ride really. Every

child hits their milestones at

different ages, but there were

just some things with Lilian that

were different to her sister – her

movements were quite different.”

It took several visits to doctors

and specialists to understand

Lilian’s rare condition. The family

is not aware of anyone else in

New Zealand with the disorder.

The doctors are along the

journey with us, they are learning

from Lilian . . . really we just

have to take each day as it comes.

Lilian has got very good at

adapting things for herself,” said

Mrs Exton.

WINNERS

ARE

GRINNERS:

Lilian

Exton’s

success

in both

boccia and

athletics

has won

her a Zonta

Sports

Award.

When Lilian was in year 4, she

started using a wheelchair as the

arthritic-like pain in her bones

became too uncomfortable. Now

she uses a power wheelchair,

and in 2013 with help from The

Star, almost $30,000 was raised

for Lilian’s family so they could

purchase a van to transport

the chair. With this came great

freedom, said Mrs Exton.

Lilian has a busy social life,

goes to parties and has a closeknit

group of friends. “Where she

goes, her chair can go,” said Mrs

Exton.

She has just completed year 13

at Avonside Girls’ High School

and has plans to work with

children with disabilities.

On Tuesday night at the

school’s prize-giving, Lilian was

awarded three prizes, one being

the The Joan Conder Memorial

Cup, which is given to a student

who epitomises the school’s

values.

In the future, Lilian hopes to

compete at boccia tournaments

in Australia, as well as travel to

other countries.

Throughout her life, Lilian has

experienced people being unkind

because of her disability. “I get

a lot of stares, people pointing,

laughing or whispering. People

come up and ask personal

questions,” she said.

With help from her friends

and family, Lilian has learned

to brush off other people’s

behaviour. “No one is normal,

some just stick out more than

others,” she said.

Philip & Glenys Kennard

Dairy, properties to winning the

Husband and wife

horse ownership

combo Philip and

Glenys Kennard are

going for their third

straight New Zealand

Trotting Cup title at

Addington next week.

Sports reporter Gordon

Findlater caught up

with the couple whose

first exploration into

ownership was in a

syndicate of 10 in 1987

with Idle Bromac

Have you always had an

interest in racing?

(Philip) – Yes, my family went

to the races a lot when we were

kids, you used to queue up for

the old Stevies pies. There were

big crowds at the night trots. We

used to live in a 100 sq m home

in Shirley and on Cup Day we

could have anywhere from 13

to 18 people staying there for

the week. Mum and dad would

turn on a meal for the uncles,

aunties and friends. By Saturday

after the gallops, the week would

be done and everyone would

pack up and leave on Sunday. It

was always a lot of fun and that

probably got me into it.

What does being in

ownership add to racing?

(Philip) – I can remember the

first time our family ever had

a horse racing on Cup Day, the

energy levels went up in our

house tenfold . . . just to be there

and in the race is amazing. We

ran a lot of thirds and seconds

for several years. We got nutted

right on the line a couple of

times. You go through this

apprenticeship of emotions, but

then we’ve been lucky the last

few years to win Sires Stakes and

New Zealand Cups in the same

day.

When you first got into

ownership did you ever think

you’d get a group one win let

alone a New Zealand Cup?

SILVERWARE: Philip and Glenys Kennard hold aloft the Inter Dominion and Breeders Crown trophies.

(Glenys) –Oh no, just to

get a win at the races in a

lowish maiden race was pretty

phenomenal. Even now when we

have a maiden win we get just

about as excited about that as

some of the big wins. It depends

who your syndicate members are

and your involvement and the

story behind the horse. They all

have their own special reasons

for what it means to you.

Is this time of the year like

Christmas for you guys?

(Glenys) – Well, Philip calls it

his Christmas because he’s like

the Christmas Grinch.

(Philip) – I count down the

sleeps to Cup Day from 100. I’ll

often get out my diary at the

start of the year and count back

to mark it up. I’m looking at

races and think about where the

horses are going and how tight

time is getting for some that

have had little niggles and

issues, because they’re like

athletes.

Do you have favourites?

(Glenys) – Yes, you do. Smolda

particularly just because what he

went through. He got to a couple

of weeks out from the cup and

we had to scratch him because he

had an allergy. He used to suffer

from hay fever.

(Philip) – Yes, even though

he ran a really good second in

the cup he was never at his best

then because the pollen in the air

at this time of the year affected

his breathing. When he went

to Australia he was a totally

different horse, it’s like he grew

another leg.

(Glenys) – Lazarus was another

because of his nature. You could

have him in the backyard and

he’d be good as. His friendly

nature was incredible.

What was the sale of Lazarus

like for you?

(Philip) – Pretty gutting but

that’s the reality of syndication.

(Glenys) – It was a very, very

tough time. It’s still a raw thing

for us . . . it was tough for both of

us because we were the reluctant

parties in the process to sell him.

But, if you look at potentially

what he can do and what he’s

already done for harness racing

in New Zealand with the North

American interest, it’s showing

we’re making a mark. We’ve

been saying for years, our breeds

are not that far behind the North

American’s. It’s proven we’re

actually on an equal.

What would you liked to have

seen happen?

(Glenys) – We wanted him to

do that third New Zealand Cup,

not because Terror to Love had

done it but more the fact that he

raced so much in Australia the

public of New Zealand didn’t

really get to have that time with

him. I just thought the timing

would be to do the New Zealand

Cup, maybe go through to the

Miracle Mile, just pick and

choose a couple of key races

before going to America.

Fire rages, homes at risk

New Zealand Cup

How would you describe your

relationship with other owners?

(Philip) – It’s a great game with

comradeship and friendship.

We stand in the grandstand at

Addington on a big race day and

you’ve got other people you know

really well who you’re racing

against, but we’re sitting up there

and can have nothing to do with

the outcome. If they win we

congratulate them and if we win

we hope they’re as pleased for us

as we would be for them. That’s

the way racing is. It’s like going

out on a rugby paddock and you

watch these guys have a scrap

and the whistle blows and they all

shake hands.

Can you describe the feeling

of winning the New Zealand

Cup?

(Philip) – Absolute euphoria

. . . you just don’t think two

people from very simple working

class backgrounds can actually

achieve that. You think it’s for

other people to do. I said it in the

speech during the first win that

I’ve spent probably 40 to 45 years

looking from the grandstand

to people accepting the trotting

cup, and then to stand there and

look back towards the stand and

accept the cup was amazing.

What interests do you have

outside of racing?

(Philip) – Kids and grandkids.

We’ve got three girls – one in

Brisbane, one in Melbourne and

one in Christchurch. We love our

camping. We have a caravan in

the Mackenzie Country that we

try to get to at least every second

or third week from now on.

What about work?

(Glenys) –My work now

is running the horse racing

syndicates. Philip still does a bit

of developing.

(Philip) – I had a real estate

company for 35 years and sold

out of that five years ago.

(Glenys) – He says he’s retired

but I say semi-retired because he’s

not really.

Did you work in real estate as

well?

(Glenys) – No, I was lucky

Trotting Cup win.

enough to be a stay at home

mum. Before that time I used to

work at The Press, just typing a

bit of news. I first started at the

Oamaru Mail before moving to

Christchurch. Then I left to have

our family, but you get involved

with what your kids are doing

so I was heavily involved with

the Wharenui Swim Club. I used

to organise the travel for all the

swimmers for about nine years.

Did you do anything before

real estate Philip?

(Philip) – I did four years as a

farm cadet and then I worked on

a farm in Oamaru. I sort of knew

Glenys a little bit there through

a friend and then we ended up

going out. I wanted to own a

dairy farm, well I still want to

own one, that’s the only thing on

my bucket list I probably haven’t

ticked from a business point of

view but Glenys isn’t too keen on

the gumboots . . . we came back

to Christchurch and bought a

seven-day dairy when I was 20

and Glenys was probably 18.

(Glenys) – Yes, I worked during

the day at The Press at night in

the dairy.

Where was the dairy?

(Philip) – Near where I had

the real estate company on the

corner of Hoon Hay and Lincoln

Rd, where Bill’s Bar is . . . we had

little money so we had to buy

something that was run down

to get into it. One day by chance

I listened to somebody talking

to someone else about shifting

yellow lines when I was in at

the city council and I thought

gee, I’m sure I had the shop near

that quoted to me. I thought if

they’re taking those yellow lines

away that will make a massive

difference. So, we went back and

checked it out. It was disgusting,

the filth was unbelievable . . .

because of the amount of grease

in the carpet. It came up like new

when we had it cleaned.

How long where you there?

(Philip) – It was trading about

$1200 a week and we sold it

20 months later doing nearly

$20,000 a week . . . I wanted to

get into real estate then but I

was too young so I looked after a

couple of other dairies. Then

a guy I had applied to work

with gave me a ring and said

someone they had taken on

hadn’t worked out and asked if

I wanted to give it a shot. I said

too right I would. It went from

there and eventually worked up a

pretty nice business.

died and about 41,000 were

injured. It is hard to imagine

what this would mean in

today’s terms.

Over the weekend, we

planted a tree and unveiled

a plaque to commemorate

the 100th anniversary of the

liberation of Le Quesnoy

in France at our Park of

Remembrance.

We heard the great

grandchildren of 2nd

Lieutenant Leslie Averill,

who led the New Zealand

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

battalion over the ramparts to

avoid civilian lives being lost,

speak with pride about their

association with this part of

our shared history with France.

Someone reminded me that

the men who served weren’t

much older than them. And

that’s when I was struck with

the enormity of the sacrifice.

That their liberators had

come from the other side of

the world was a sacrifice that

has never been forgotten in Le

Quesnoy.

We also remembered Sergeant

Henry James Nicholas,

VC, whose statue stands in the

Park of Remembrance.

He was killed in action on

the October 23, 1918, only a few

kilometres from Le Quesnoy,

and less than a month before

the war ended. Sergeant

Nicholas was accorded the

highest honour, the Victoria

Cross, for “fearless leadership

and contempt for danger”.

Lest we forget.

Historical significance for small community

Wayne Stack writes

about a small part

of Canterbury and

its World War 1

involvement

THE COMMEMORATION of

the centenary of Armistice Day

to be held at the new Lakeside

Soldiers’ Memorial Hall on

Sunday has a greater historical

significance for the Selwyn

District than most people realise.

Traditionally in New Zealand

and Australia, Anzac Day has

provided the main focus for

remembrance of sacrifice in war,

with Armistice Day receiving

only limited attention.

However, the building of the

new memorial hall in the centennial

year of the end of World

War 1 is proof of the continued

commitment of the people of

the district in remembering the

sacrifice of the citizen-soldiers

and nurses who went to war to

defend the nation’s interests.

The building of a new hall at

Lakeside to replace the old hall

that had been demolished after

suffering significant damage

from the September 4, 2010,

earthquake was contentious.

Some questioned the rationale

of building a new hall in an

area of low population density

when it would be better suited in

Leeston.

However, the heritage significance

of the old hall was

recognised by the district council’s

decision to build a modern

replacement to preserve its commemorative

function.

What made the original hall

so significant was that it was

one of the first, if not the first,

Great War memorials built in

Canterbury.

It had a dual function of not

only being a memorial to those

from the district who served

overseas during World War

1, but also served a practical

purpose in providing a muchneeded

community meeting

place.

According to a report marking

COMMUNITY: The original Lakeside Soldiers’ Memorial Hall.

the opening of the memorial

hall published in the Ellesmere

Guardian on August 4, 1917, the

residents of Lakeside had begun

raising funds for a community

hall in 1914, but it was agreed

to put the project on hold at the

outbreak of war later that year.

The war went on longer than

expected and the need for a

hall became acute due to the

increased number of community

functions held to support the

war effort.

Raising sufficient funds to

build the hall had been an

obstacle in the past, but like the

funding for the new hall in 2018,

the project was realised through

community collaboration.

In 1916 ‘a generous and wellknown

local lady,’ who remained

anonymous, had offered to fund

free of interest the amount of

money required over and above

the amount subscribed by residents.

And it was at her suggestion

that a brick building be put up

and dedicated to the memory

of the Lakeside soldiers serving

overseas in the war.

By this time the New Zealand

Expeditionary Force had suffered

heavy casualties fighting at

Gallipoli, on the Western Front,

and in Egypt and Palestine; with

a number of volunteers from

Lakeside among them.

The building of the original

hall also came about through

further generosity of John

McLachlan, a local farmer who

had donated land for the hall

to be built on adjacent to Hart’s

Creek near Creamery Corner.

Many residents were also

actively involved in the project

by providing free cartage of

building materials and providing

furnishings, while a Mr K. Patterson

presented a large wooden

roll of honour which hung in the

hall.

The new hall was reported as

having ‘an attractive front elevation,

two large folding entrance

doors, with a neat window either

side’ with the words Soldiers Memorial

Hall appearing in large

letters above the entrance.

It was officially opened by the

MP for Ellesmere, Colonel Heaton

Rhodes, on August 3, 1917.

This was a very critical time

for New Zealand during World

War 1.

The NZ Division had suffered

several thousand casualties on

the Western Front in gaining

success in the battle of Messines

in June that year, which was followed

by the disaster at

Passchendaele on October 12,

where the division lost 2861

casualties (including 957 killed

in action) in a single day.

Such loss of life in a military

event remains unprecedented

in New Zealand history and the

HONOURED: Lance Corporal Hersey Rapley (left), of

Leeston, was killed in the battle of Messines while serving

in the Canterbury Infantry Regiment. (Right) –Trooper

Regiment. He died of wounds while serving on the Western

Front in France.

thought of not returning home

weighed heavily on those local

young men who travelled to

Europe and the Middle East as

reinforcements.

An example is that of Trooper

Clement McLachlan of the Canterbury

Mounted Rifles who later

transferred into the NZ Rifle

Brigade, serving on the Western

Front.

After receiving a letter from

his sister, Margaretta Lochhead,

giving him an update on the

progress of the building of the

hall, he replied in a letter home

expressing his hope that there

would not be too many names

on the roll of honour.

Sadly, he was one of those who

did not return, dying of wounds

in France in April 1918.

The McLachlan family connection

with the hall remains with

Clement’s great-great nephew,

Hamish McLachlan, being the

project architect of the new memorial

hall, while working for Architecture

Workshop in Wellington.

Other local family connections

to those named on the roll of

honour are still prevalent in the

district, such as the Lambies,

Taiaroas, Thians and Pattersons.

When opening the original

hall, Rhodes commented that

Lakeside was a rich fertile

district, that he was confident

the population would greatly increase

in the future and that the

Creamery Corner would some

day become an important and

busy centre.

While this did not come to

fruition, his prediction that

the hall would prove very useful

to the district in many ways,

while also being a permanent

memorial to those from Lakeside

who served in the war, certainly

did.

The original Soldiers Memorial

Hall became the heart of the

Lakeside community, providing

a sense of connection to the

place.

Apart from being a venue for

annual Anzac Day services, for

93 years the hall catered for lifeevent

markers that are central to

small communities – weddings,

funerals, significant birthday

parties, elections, sporting and

cultural group meetings.

The new modern facility will

continue to fulfil these functions

for the years ahead.

Following the Armistice Day

commemoration, the hall will be

open for viewing, although the

official opening will not occur

until early 2019.

City’s brightest young sparks

Fire rages, homes at risk

Four Christchurch high

school students are

among the best young

inventors in the country.

Sophie Cornish reports

on their success at

the ASB Bright Sparks

Awards

Thomas James saw that

his elderly neighbour was in a

predicament. The 89-year-old

was told by her doctor that tasks

such as taking her wheelie bin

out to the curb were putting her

at risk of falling.

Luckily, her entrepreneurial

neighbour Thomas had an

idea. The 15-year-old from

Burnside High School was the

male recipient of the Supreme

Innovator title for his invention,

Wheelie Drive. The autonomous

robot takes care of your wheelie

bin for you.

“It solves a problem, not just

for the elderly or disabled but for

a lot of people who may have an

issue with taking their wheelie

bin to the curb – for example, if

you are away from home that day,

simply forgot or if they have a

beach house,” said Thomas.

He also considered his

grandparents when he thought

of the idea, as they have a bach

on the Coromandel. “It also

helps with security, as when a

wheelie bin is out for a few days it

becomes obvious that the people

are away . . . they will now be able

to leave and not worry about the

bin staying out the whole time.”

Thomas said the “brains of

the robot” are controlled by

an Arduino Mega, a micro

controller that connects to

ASB Bright Sparks Awards

The long-running

national competition

for young inventors is

the wheelie bin, mimicking a

human. It pulls the bin out and

takes it to the curb using a preprogrammed

route.

Thomas took home a $1000

cash prize for the project, which

he says he will use to refine the

robot. “It’s not polished enough,

it’s still a prototype at this stage.”

It was the middle of winter and

Bastein Gelin and his family

were freezing. The wood burner

in their home only heated the

room it was in.

The Cashmere High School

student wanted to find a way to

move the heat around his house

and control its distribution.

His invention, the Smart Heat

Distributor, won him the home

technologies award category.

Bastien installed sensors all

over his house and created a

server that can do the heating

calculations based on the heating

needs of each room. It can extract

the heat from one room using a

fan and distribute it to different

rooms around the house based

on the current temperatures and

how hot the user wants the room

to be.

Bastien’s project, which

he believes could be created

at a reasonable cost and be

user-friendly, uses an online

application to display sensor

readings on a plan in a house. On

the plan, the user can view and

modify the settings of each room.

Eric Song believes his

invention can solve all your

courier woes. The Burnside High

School student won first place in

the Senior Software Engineering

category.

His BlackBox is a smart

delivery box that keeps your post

safe while you are not at home.

The courier is able to scan the

delivery item, using the BlackBox

scanner. The lock-box will then

search the vendor’s database in

real time or search the tracking

number. Once it has confirmed

that the delivery is right, the box

will open, providing a safe place

for your delivery to be stored.

A delivery message will also

be sent to the buyers phone.

The buyer can then unlock the

box using his phone and scan it

again to provide an electronic

signature.

Eric’s

inspiration

came from

his own issues

with couriers.

He buys online

frequently and

is often not

home when his

Eric Song

packages are

delivered and

usually ends up

having to drive a long distance to

pick up the packages himself.

A passion for music

inspired Hsin Lee to create

ComposerFantasy. The invention

won the Burnside High School

student a shared award in the

Best Mobile Application category.

The program can combine any

two songs seamlessly. Using his

own music theory algorithm, it

can combine music and automatically

generate a new song.

Hsin believed there should be a

computer program to aid people

in creating songs and that there

must be a potential to simulate

music into a matrix of value and

use a network to combine them.

“Imagine the national anthem

meets a pop

song. Or

Beethoven

performed in

rock? Do we

just directly

mash the

songs? No.

Songs are

composed

using music

theory so their

chords won’t

Hsin Lee

match and not harmonise with

each other,” he said. Hsin has

combined music theory with his

own algorithm to automatically

generate a harmonised song in

a format that is ready to play.

“This is a useful tool for music

composers with their own

melody in mind,” he said.

The heat is on – time to grow chilli

• By Henri Ham

CHILLI SEEM to generate a mass

following all over the world.

Did you know right here in

New Zealand, we have our own

chilli-eating competition and hot

sauce festival? Much like coriander,

chilli also really polarises

people. They either love it or

won’t touch it.

When it comes to chilli, I’m

definitely in ‘team heat’ and love a

good chilli in my cooking or even

on its own.

Chilli heat is measured in

Scoville Heat Units. The higher

the rating the hotter the chilli.

Trained testers dissolve dried

chilli in alcohol and sugar water

to measure its pungency. They

then sample the mixture and

dilute it until they can’t detect any

more heat.

Now I love chilli, but I’m not

sure if I’d like this job.

The current champion to the

‘world’s hottest chilli’ goes to the

carolina reaper. It has a little grim

reaper-shaped tail and clocks in at

1,600,000 SKU. To give some perspective

– the friendly jalapeno

measures around 5000 SKU.

Eating hot chilli is not for the

faint-hearted. People often find

them to taste initially sweet, with

an after burn that can last up to

one hour in unsuspecting victims.

ADVERTORIAL

And as a general rule, the smaller

the pod the hotter the taste.

Chillies are a spring and summer

plant. The first varieties are

ready right now such as jalapeno

and red hot chilli. In November

you’ll see the habanero red, bhut

jolokia (ghost pepper) and the

jalapeno red flame seedlings become

available. You’ll have to wait

until Christmas time to get your

to where you’d plant your tomatoes,

capsicums, basil and parsley.

If you’ve got space near any beefriendly

plants like oregano and

lavender, plant your chillies there

to help with pollination.

Increase the quality of your soil

by adding a good general fertiliser

and come compost. Sheep pallets

are also great to mix in with the

compost, and act as a slow release

fertiliser.

Chilli plants can get quite big,

so plant your seedlings around

30-50cm apart. But they don’t

actually need a lot of space, and

grow well in pots as well. Water

straight after planting, but after

that they only need attending to

every few days. Avoid wetting the

leaves to prevent the spread of any

diseases. And, once your chillies

have developed, you might like to

water them sparingly (depending

on your taste buds) as less watering

will make the fruit hotter.

In around two to three months

from planting, you’ll start to see

some spicy life. First flowers appear

then, after being pollinated,

they turn into fruit.

If you’re unsure whether your

plants have been pollinated

simply dab a small paint brush

in each flower to help spread the

pollen around.

Remember as with many fruit

plants, cut your chillies rather

than pulling them off. This encourages

more fruit to grow. And

what many people don’t realise is

that a whole chilli freezes really

well – lasting up to six months in

the freezer. When you’re ready

to cook with them, use an extra

sharp knife and chop up your

chilli while frozen. With fresh

chilli about $2 each in the supermarket

right now, it sure makes

sense to freeze them.

Chillies are perennial plants

meaning they can last a few

seasons. Once your plant has

finished fruiting, simply prune

back by about a third, and remove

any dead branches. They don’t

cope well with frosts. If you did

plant them in pots, move them to

warmer ground for winter. Either

indoors, or higher to the deck or

under the eaves of your house.

ADVICE

This is my first year growing

QUESTION tomatoes. At some hardware

stores they have nice

looking tomato cages. Would it be worth

investing in some cages or will bamboo

stakes and string be sufficient?

Apart from dwarf

ANSWER tomatoes e.g. Scorsby

dwarf and Russian

red, all tomatoes require support when they

are in active growth. Whatever type of stake

you select, it should be placed adjacent to the

tomato plant either prior to planting or immediately

after planting so that the roots are not disturbed.

Unless the bamboo stakes are green and strong,

wooden stakes would be better as they are a bit

sturdier. The tomato plants can be attached to

the stakes with soft ties (e.g. pantyhose) at regular

intervals of approximately 150-200mm as they grow

upwards.

Tomatoes grow best in free draining soil with plenty of

compost added prior to planting. As the plants mature,

side dressings of Garden Time Tomato Fertiliser or

Garden Time Vegetable Fertiliser can be applied, but

ensure it is well watered in.

Mulch with compost to help retain soil moisture and water plants

on a regular basis (2-3 times a week), allowing the water to deeply

penetrate the root system. Always grow your tomato plants in a sunny position

that is sheltered from strong prevailing winds. Good luck with your first crop!

DIABETES AWARENESS

Diabetes and Arthritis aid

gets amazing feedback!

• Since using the Aircycle the swelling

in my legs and feet have decreased

dramatically, my ulcerated toe has started

to heal and all the pain from my toe has

gone. The toes on my other foot have

stopped tingling and getting sore on the

tips and they are back to a healthy pink

colour. I am now able to walk much

further without pain.”- Richard UK.

• “ Within 2 weeks of using the Aircycle

my ulcer was starting to heal and in

6 weeks it was completely healed. My

physio said it was because I was exercising

more. It’s good to be able to do something

whilst sitting, especially when it’s so easy

yet effective.”- Jane, Toowomba

DIABETES AND

ARTHRITIS AID

Gentle and effective exercise while you’re

seated watching TV or reading a book.

It’s so easy!

Registered with Medsafe & with lifetime warranty, it’s used by diabetes

clinics, hospitals, rest homes, podiatrists and physiotherapists. Helpful

for:… Diabetes foot care | Swollen ankles | Leg or foot ulcers

Chilblains and varicose veins | Deep vein thrombosis prevention

Cramp and restless legs | Sciatica | Building muscle & fall prevention

Arthritis, Parkinson’s, MS | Aching hands, arms and shoulders

Great Xmas gift idea!

• “The Aircycle is even better than the

information says. The pain in my knees has

gone and although I use a walker I don’t

need it around the house anymore. I can

move more freely and have much less pain

in both my hands and feet. My feet are

warmer too and now I don’t need bed socks

which I’ve worn for years” Gay, Rotorua

Listed with Medsafe and shown by

hospitals, rest homes, diabetes clinics,

podiatrists and physiotherapists to be

helpful for a variety of circulatory and joint

problems in hands, shoulders, feet and legs,

IN THE PAST Holden

Commodore buyers have

largely had to trade-off

fuel economy against

performance.

The long-serving

Australian-made V6 and

the LS-series V8 out of the

United States were great

powerplants, but if you used

the power then economy

was always going to suffer.

As recent history has

served to prove, the

Commodore is no longer

made in Australia, and

gone are those amazing

engines. Nevertheless, there

is still a petrol-fuelled V6

option in today’s Europeansourced

Commodore,

alongside a turbocharged

2-litre four-cylinder petrol.

I’ve evaluated two variants

of the V6 Commodore in

recent months, but the most

exciting model in today’s

Commodore is a 2-litre fourcylinder

turbocharged diesel

option, and I was fortunate

enough to have the car in

my possession for around

two weeks. However, it must

be said, I just couldn’t get

it to use fuel, after almost

300km the fuel gauge was

still looking healthy at almost

three-quarters full.

As an aside, when Holden

New Zealand launched

the diesel option to the

motoring media, it included

an economy challenge on

roads north of Auckland.

A wrong turn, putting me

into dense traffic, ruined my

chances of a winning result,

but I did end the exercise

with a 4.8-litre per 100km

(58mpg) average, well below

the manufacturer’s claims of

5.6l/100km (50mpg).

That was also reinforced

by the display figures on

my home patch. After a

fortnight of much inner-city

driving and a rural burst, a

6.8l/100km (41mpg) figure

was showing, which was

helped by a 4.4l/100km

(63mpg) instantaneous

readout at 100km/h, the

engine turning over slowly

at just 1500rpm.

For a big car these figures

are remarkable, and if you

take into account a 61-litre

tank, distances of around

1000km are possible

between refills.

Not only do you get

wonderful economy out

the 2-litre diesel, you

also get the strong surge

of mid-range power that

epitomises turbocharged

diesel engines. Holden

claim power outputs

of 125kW and 400Nm,

the latter available all of

the way from 1750rpm

to 2500rpm, and that is

why driving diesel is so

rewarding, there is solid

response to any accelerator

pressure and a burst

through the rev band that is

quite enticing.

Bear in mind, too, that

drive is channelled through

a smooth-shifting eightspeed

automatic gearbox,

the ratios change quickly

and because of the number

of gears, there’s never a point

where the engine is caught

Holden also claims

a 6.9sec time to reach

100km/h from a standstill,

while by my stopwatch

it will lunge through a

highway overtake in 6sec.

My introduction

regarding performance

and economy has much

relevance, all of these

figures add up to walletfriendly

fuel usage and

lively acceleration. That’s

not something we’ve always

been able to say about

diesel-power, but the new

Commodore has stateof-the-art

engineering

which is on a par with the

competition from other

high-profile German

brands, and European cars

in total.

The Commodore also

looks the part, it arrives

here in two variants –

liftback and Tourer.

The new Commodore

oozes character and style.

All of those who offered

conversation about the ZB

series have mentioned the

design, it has strong lines,

the shape easily replicating

the best we have seen from

the Aussie Commodores,

and it is a shape that befits

the nameplate.

It also gets all of the trick

gear that we have come to

expect from the Holden

badge; it wants for little and

particularly appeals to me

in LT form with its cloth

trim. Incidentally, the diesel

variant comes in a base grade

only at $48,990, I’m fine

with that, I far prefer cloth.

However, you do get that

choice of liftback or wagon.

For the technicallyminded,

the new

Commodore is effectively

front-wheel-drive. The

V6 models have allwheel-drive

capability,

but in 2-litre form you

have to keep the mindset

that drive is out the front

only. That’s no handicap,

the Commodore steers

beautifully, and enjoys

a quick corner with

strong body balance. At

just 1.45m tall there is

little body movement

over the suspension, and

with softish spring and

damper rates the ride/

handling balance has little

compromise.

By chance, I got talking

to a police officer the other

day, he was driving a newgeneration

petrol-fuelled

2-litre Commodore, and

he was very enthusiastic

about the new series and its

refinement. While he also

said he misses the outright

power of the old model,

the newcomer is a lot more

civilised and quieter.

Given that the police will

be driving Commodore for

many years to come, that’s a

good outcome and a worthy

endorsement. It certainly has

my seal of approval as well.

Veterans back on world cricket stage

Kember,

Nuttall part

of over-50s

World Cup

• By Gordon Findlater

THREE DECADES on from

representing New Zealand at

the inaugural under-19 Cricket

World Cup, Hamish Kember will

play for his country in another

first time World Cup.

Kember, 50, will travel to

Sydney later this month as part

of the New Zealand team to

compete at the inaugural over-

50s Cricket World Cup.

Kember represented New

Zealand at the inaugural

under-19 World Cup in 1988 in

Australia.

In that tournament he played

in the same side as Lee Germon,

who captained the side; Chris

Cairns; and Andrew Caddick,

who played for New Zealand at

age group level before going on

to represent England.

“It will be really awesome. I’m

looking forward to book-ending

my career with highlights in

Australia,” said Kember.

The 1988 tournament also

featured the likes of Brian Lara,

Inzamam-ul-Haq and Sanath

Jayasuriya.

With his left-arm orthodox

bowling, Kember has taken

about 500 wickets at premier

level for Burnside West and

more than 700 across all grades.

In the one-day format, he had

an economy rate of 2.3 over

his career and could frustrate

bowlers with his lower-order

batting.

He made his first-class debut

in 1991 for New Zealand

Emerging Players against Sri

Lanka. Kember went on to make

13 appearances for Canterbury

in both list A and first class

formats.

BATTLERS: Hamish Kember and Andrew Nuttall will represent New Zealand at the inaugural over-50 Cricket World Cup. ​

The other left-arm spinner in

the Canterbury side at the time

was a fellow by the name of Mark

Preist so I was often a back-up,”

said Kember.

At the over-50s Cricket World

Cup, New Zealand will play a

round-robin match against the

seven other competing nations –

Australia, England, Pakistan, Sri

Lanka, South Africa, Wales and

Canada.

The tournament will then have

semi-finals and a final.

“I’m a wiser cricketer and a

much more confident cricketer

now, but I wouldn’t say I’m a

better cricketer than I was 30

years ago.”

Kember has now been playing

presidents grade for the past nine

years. After being selected in the

New Zealand over-50s team in

April, he has also had to return

to spin bowling after making a

brief change in style.

“We’ve had a few veterans in

the club team that aren’t that

great at catching off my spin

bowling. I got frustrated one day

and decided to take a longer run

up and bowl medium pacers and

I’ve been bowling that since, so

this season I’ve had to go back

to spin to re-focus myself for the

tournament.”

Kember believes one of

the keys to success at the

tournament, which runs

from November 20 to December

5, will be preserving bodies

over the high volume of

cricket.

They play up to nine games

over the two weeks.

“We’ve got a physiotherapist

sponsoring us, so she’s got a

team of three to make sure our

bodies come through okay . . . I’d

say they’ll be very well used.”

Kember will be joined by

fellow Canterbury players Brent

Fleming, Craig Gibb and the

oldest player in the New Zealand

side, Andrew Nuttall, 61.

“I’ve probably lost four

kilograms in the past few

months getting ready for this

things,” said Nuttall, who

played 19 first class games for

Canterbury.

“I’ve been doing Pilates and

some yoga to help with the

flexibility.”

Halligan takes over

the reins at his old

club – Chch United

FORMER ALL Whites

midfielder and Christchurch

United legend Danny Halligan

has signed on as the new first

team coach to help his old club

return to the top of Canterbury

football.

Halligan completed five

successful seasons coaching

Ferrymead Bays in the Mainland

Premier League, which featured

a league title last year and the

English Cup in 2016.

The 53-time New Zealand

international now re-joins

Christchurch United, the club he

previously made a huge impact

on as a player and coach.

Halligan

initially joined

the star-studded,

all-conquering

Christchurch

United team in

1987 and won

three National

League titles and

two Chatham

Cups before

embarking on

a professional

career with

Brisbane United

in the Australian

League.

He returned

to Christchurch

United in 1993

and unexpectedly

found himself in

his first coaching

role, while still

a key player, at

the tender age of

28 when legendary coach Terry

Conley retired. The first two

players he recruited were two

school boys called Ryan Nelsen

and Ben Sigmund.

“I was very happy at Bays

Keegan makes winning impact on sprintcar division

• By Allan Batt

FOR TWO seasons now,

Christchurch speedway driver

Luke Keegan has in racing

terms had to start all over again,

going from being New

Zealand’s top modified

racer to a rookie in the

sprintcar division.

The technology

between the two classes

is like night and day,

with the sprintcars

being significantly

lighter, more powerful

and faster than what

Keegan was used to.

But his win in the

first feature race of the season

at Ruapuna over the weekend

NEW CHALLENGE: Danny

Halligan, who was named

Mainland Football coach

of the year in 2017, has

returned to Christchurch

United.

Luke Keegan

United approached me, I was

initially not that interested,” said

Halligan.

“But once I took a closer

look at the intentions and the

ambitions of the club, I got really

excited by the challenge. And of

course, I’ve also got a soft spot

for Christchurch United with my

history at the club.”

After the club’s glory years

in the 1980s and 1990s,

Christchurch United has been

languishing in the second tier of

Mainland Football, and Halligan

admits his knowledge of the

championship and his squad is

limited.

“I’ve got a lot of

work to do and

it will be a big

challenge, but it is

the challenge that

excites me about

this role.”

Christchurch

United has been

rebuilding over

the past few years

and its academy

programme

has delivered

great results at

youth level. But

president Slava

Meyn hopes that

Halligan will be

the missing piece

in the puzzle to

take the first team

back to the MPL.

“We feel

honoured that

Danny Halligan

has agreed to help his old club get

back to where we belong. Getting

a coach with his experience and

pedigree shows that Christchurch

United is serious about its

ambitions to again be the leading

football brand in the region,” said

Meyn.

points to him having turned the

corner.

The three-time national

modified champion has

patiently worked his way

through any frustrations that he

had in adapting to the

sprintcars and, while

he has consistently

been in the top five,

the feature win has

given his team huge

confidence.

On Saturday

night, he will go into

– which will feature

the first round of the

coaching duo.

New coaches for Lincoln Uni

• By Gordon Findlater

NEW HEAD coach Alex

Robertson and assistant Craig

Dunlea will look to guide

Lincoln University to a fifth

straight metro rugby title next

year.

The pair come to Lincoln

with some country rugby

flavour, both having been

involved in Canterbury

Country’s rugby programme in

recent years.

Robertson and

Dunlea take over from

Bevan Sissons and

Ben Blair who guided

the side to victory this

year.

“Ben and Bevan

didn’t want to

continue. They’ve

served Lincoln very

well over the last few years,”

said Lincoln University sport

scholarship manager Peter

Magson.

Sissons has taken up a

coaching role with Burnside,

domination of the 20-lap race on

a wind blown track. He is keen

to improve on his third place in

last season’s series.

Twenty-four sprintcars are

expected to face the starter

on Saturday, including entries

from Cromwell, Invercargill,

Blenheim and Nelson.

Two drivers – Steve Duff and

Daniel Anderson – will face a

huge workload, having both

been involved in spectacular

roll-overs, inflicting considerable

damage to their cars.

Defending series champion

Jamie Duff (Christchurch)

finished third at the weekend’s

feature race, and he will have

noted Keegan’s performance

with considerable interest.

Alex

Robertson

while Blair has done the same at

Marist Albion.

Robertson has spent the

last two years as the co-coach

at Darfield and head coach

of the Ellesmere senior side.

Last year he was also an

assistant coach at Canterbury

Country. He has worked for

the England National Rugby

Union as a coach developer and

community rugby coach while

part of the Harlequins Academy

DPP programme.

“I want to

take my time to

understand why

the club has been

so successful, how

it has gone about

achieving it, and

then set the bar

even higher,” said

Robertson.

“Lincoln University is

a well-respected club in

Canterbury. This new role is

a chance to share my passion

with the players and it’s a

great environment to develop

Craig

Dunlea

the person and help them

to achieve in rugby and in

life,” he said. Dunlea played

professional rugby in New

Zealand and overseas before

becoming involved in coaching

at Mid-Canterbury.

He also coached the New

Zealand Heartland under-19

team for two seasons in the Jock

Hobbs national tournament,

and worked with the

Canterbury Country team.

The bar is already set

very high results-wise,

so there will be a lot of

pressure to keep this

going. But with some

great foundations already

in place, it is important

that we keep the

momentum going and

keep trying to add to that

success in the future,”

said Dunlea.

“I really like the challenge

of developing the players to

become better, which will put

them in contention for higher

achievements.”

Concerns over exposure

to wind at Nga Puna Wai

• By Gordon Findlater

CANTERBURY Athletics have

concerns about Nga Puna Wai’s

exposure to wind following

the incompletion of a number

of field events at an athletics

meeting on Saturday.

The wind was recorded at

8m per second and caused the

cancellation of the pole vault due

to safety.

While this was caused by

a particularly strong northwesterly

wind, there is an overlying

concern about wind causing

future events to not be able to

recognise records being broken.

For any records to be recognised

at a meeting, the wind

must be under the 2m per

second threshold. At the three

Canterbury Athletics track and

field meetings held at Nga Puna

Wai since its opening, the wind

reading has never been under

the threshold.

HOW GOOD was George

Bridge?

Saturday’s All Blacks test

against Japan was a match that

carried little interest for me.

However, after venturing home

from a long day playing cricket

– yes, that other sport we play

during November when the

rugby season is nearing the end

of its 10-month season – I found

myself intrigued enough to cast

an eye over the match.

The game threw out few

surprises and provided the

anticipated cringe as at least one

player made their All Blacks debut

(Brett Cameron). I’ve already

written about how the extended

51-man All Blacks squad for the

Japan test diminished the All

Blacks brand, so let’s not harp

on about that again.

By the end of the match that

feeling was only a back-thought

to how blown away I was by

Bridge’s performance, though.

When my flatmate – who is

the first to instigate a trip to the

pub for every All Blacks match –

arrived home near the end of the

match, he threw out a surprised

“Oh, that’s right the All Blacks

are playing,” to which I replied

“it’s worth watching for Bridge

alone, he’s having the match of

his life.”

At the time, it felt like a fair

statement. However, as the

week’s gone on, I’ve come to

the realisation that

A game worth

watching – if

only for

George Bridge

bench shouldn’t have

come with as much

surprise as it did.

In fact, it’s got

me back onto the

subject of why Super

Rugby form seems

to be all but ignored

when the All Blacks team

is named following each season

for the Rugby Championship.

Bridge scored 15 tries this

Super Rugby season and was the

only player from the back-toback

championship Crusaders

side included in Sanzaar’s annual

Super Rugby team of the

year in August.

For some context if we were

talking about English football

and a player from any nation was

named in the premier league’s

team of the year in back-to-back

seasons, he would surely be a

shoe-in for selection in his national

team.

However, an eyelid was barely

raised as Bridge’s name wasn’t

called when Steve Hansen

named his squad for the Rugby

Championship.

If Bridge has another Super

Rugby campaign next year anything

like this year, he must be

in the conversation for a starting

spot on the All Blacks wing.

How long can we keep ignoring

guys busting their guts each

week to make the black jersey

only to be met with the “yes, his

form has been poor but he’s performed

well in the black jersey in

the past” reasoning?

Bridge should feel proud of

what he did at the weekend,

Steve Hansen and his coaching

staff should feel like they’re a

little late tapping into an undeniable

try-scoring talent.

Four things you MUST

do before buying a home

Buying a home is a big deal. It’s likely to be the most

expensive thing you buy, and it can be a complicated

legal process. It’s even tougher in a hot market, where

there is a lot of competition for a limited number

of properties. It might be tempting to take a few

shortcuts, but failing to do things properly could

cause more problems later.

Here are our top four tasks for home

buyers.

1. Research the property

The real estate agent selling the property

acts on behalf of the seller, however they

are also required to tell you everything

they know about the property. They

must respond professionally to all your

enquiries and not withhold any details.

Remember that you still need to do your

own due diligence. That means getting

a title search so you can find out all the

facts about the property’s ownership,

boundary and access, as held by Land

Information New Zealand (LINZ). It’s

a good idea to get a Land Information

Memorandum (LIM), which shows

information held by the local council

about the property and land. For valuable

feedback on the property’s condition, get

a report done by an inspector who has

professional indemnity insurance and

carries out their work in accordance with

the New Zealand Property Inspection

Standard. Although this all costs money,

it will save you more in the long term.

Sellers may occasionally provide some of

this information for you. If this happens,

check that it is up-to-date.

2. Get legal advice

Buying property is expensive, and it

can cost even more if something goes

wrong. That’s why it’s important to get

legal advice before you sign anything.

A lawyer will handle all the paperwork

involved in the process, including the

title search, and offer impartial advice.

If you don’t have a lawyer, the New

Zealand Law Society can help you find

one at propertylawyers.org.nz.

3. Understand the sale process

There are several methods of buying and

selling property, for example, tender or

auction. It’s important to understand the

process for the property you are buying.

Practices can vary between agencies

so make sure you confirm details with

them. The Home Buyer’s Guide at

buyingahome.reaa.govt.nz has more

helpful advice.

4. Read the sale and purchase

agreement and understand what it

means

The sale and purchase agreement is your

contract with the seller. It is crucial to

read it very carefully and get legal advice

before you sign. You can negotiate the

terms and conditions of an agreement,

but once you sign it, there’s no going

back.

PERMITTED TEMPORARY DEPOTS

AND STORAGE FACILITIES

Under Clause 8(3)(a) of the Canterbury Earthquake

(Resource Management Act Permitted Activities) Order 2011

Despite anything to the contrary in the Christchurch City Plan, the activities listed below

are permitted activities in the specified locations if they comply with the prescribed

standards:

1. ACTIVITY: Temporary Depot/Storage Facility

LOCATION: 95 Kilmore Street, Central City

APPLICANT: Christchurch City Council

REFERENCE NO: RMA/2018/2237

STANDARDS:

1. The activity must proceed in general accordance with the information submitted

to the Council on 13/09/2018.

2. The Town Hall contractor parking activity will cease on/before the end of day 28

February 2019.

3. The Kilmore Street site office and storage facility will cease on/before the end of

day 20 December 2018.

4. Adequate dust control measures must be in place at all times so as to minimise

any nuisance to neighbouring properties. Appropriate equipment (e.g. water

hose, sprinkler system) shall be available on site at all times and used whenever

required by adverse conditions (windy weather, etc) as well as to reduce dust

emissions from heavy traffic within the site.

5. At the completion of the works:

a. Any public road (s), footpath, landscaped areas or service structures that

have been affected/damaged by contractor(s), consent holder or by vehicles

and machinery used in relation to the works, shall be reinstated to the

relevant Council Construction Standard Specification (CSS) at the expense

of the consent holder.

b. Surplus or unsuitable material from the project works shall be removed from

site and disposed at a facility authorised to receive such material.

6. The activity must not create any significant adverse effects (relating, but

not limited to, noise, dust, mud, light spill, odour, traffic generation, refuse

disposal, animal control and visual amenity) that will, in the opinion of a

Council Compliance Officer or Environmental Health Officer, cause nuisance for

occupiers of surrounding sites.

Note: If any significant adverse effects do arise, then the Council can impose

additional requirements or conditions to avoid, remedy or mitigate those

adverse effects.

The general Standards for Permitted Temporary Accommodation and Temporary Depots

and Storage Facilities can be viewed on the Temporary Accommodation page of the

Council’s website at www.ccc.govt.nz/tempaccomm.

Any temporary activity established under these provisions shall not create or give rise

to any existing use right in respect of any land, activity, or structure (refer clause 5(3) of

the Canterbury Earthquake (Resource Management Act Permitted Activities) Order 2011).

If you have any questions or would like more information about the activities listed

above please phone 941 8999 and ask to speak to the Duty Planner.

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 stand 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

Hotshots director, Paul Reynolds, says

the key to the success of the group is their

attention to detail, the constant evolution of

the show and their love of performing.

The guys spend hours perfecting their

moves, training to stay in shape and

researching new ideas and songs. I believe

that it is this sort of ethic; the love for the

show and the audience and the level of

professionalism our guys bring to the show

that makes the Sydney Hotshots so

successful.”
