Tree-mendously lucky

• By Sophie Cornish

RYAN WALSH is starting to

think something is trying to

stop him from moving back to

his hometown of Westport.

The father-of-two was driving

to Christchurch on Sunday,

when a tree toppled and landed

on his Honda City in what

he describes as an “absolute

bullseye.”

Mr Walsh had been visiting

Westport to drop off his

belongings as he is planning

to move back after 25 years in

Christchurch.

“I’m born and bred (in

Westport), but for many years

I’ve tried to move back and

something always happens.”

He feels lucky to be alive and

was able to walk away from the

crash. But he suffered a break

in his neck and is recovering in

Christchurch Hospital.

Mr Walsh has a C2 fracture

and will be in a brace for six

weeks. Currently, he is able to

walk with a frame but will be able

to walk without it before he is

discharged.

Mr Walsh remembers little

about the event, which happened

at the Rahu Saddle about

5.30pm, just under three hours

out of Christchurch.

“I can’t remember anything

about it other than a flashback,

where I can remember my head

being down by the pedals. It was

the only part of the car that I

could have fit in.”

Fulton

Hogan

plans to

quarry

through

the night

• By Anan Zaki

RESIDENTS LIVING near a

controversial planned quarry

are furious it could operate

throughout the night.

Fulton Hogan plans to run

night operations at its proposed

Templeton quarry 150 days of the

year.

The resource consent

shows the working hours of

the 170ha quarry is proposed

to be 6am to 6pm, Monday to

Saturday.

But for 150

days a year,

Fulton Hogan

wants to

conduct “full”

quarry activities

between 6pm

and 10pm, and

carry out truck Garry Kilday

movements

from 10pm to 6am.

Templeton Residents’

Association chairman Garry

Kilday said Fulton Hogan has

never told residents about its

intention to quarry through the

night.

“All of the information we

have had said it was going to be

daylight,” he said.

Plans to quarry

at night-time

Craig

Stewart

Simon

Moore

•From page 1

Said Fulton Hogan South

Island general manager Craig

Stewart: “Around the region and

country at various sites we are

consented to operate during the

day and to also load out material

at night for community

roading

projects that are

done at night

when there is less

commuter and

commercial vehicles

on the roads

to disturb.”

Weedons

resident Simon

Moore is angry at

the proposal.

“Surprising,

but to be honest

nothing is

surprising me

anymore with

these guys

[Fulton Hogan],”

he said.

“Nobody expected the night

movements. I’ve been speaking

to a lot of people and no one

expected that, they [people] are

horrified,” he said.

Mr Moore believes Fulton

Hogan is applying for the “maximum”

times of operation.

“[It’s] going for the maximum

because they know [the hours]

will get peeled back.”

Fulton Hogan is also proposing

1500 heavy vehicle movements

a day.

Fulton Hogan said its trucks

will only travel through Templeton

if a delivery is near the area.

Hornby Ward city councillor

Jimmy Chen, who represents

Templeton residents, said he

had not yet read through the

resource consent application and

therefore would not comment.

Fulton Hogan says the total

life of the quarry is expected to

be about 30 to 40 years and rock

will be taken from a depth of

10m below ground.

The quarry activities are

anticipated to begin in 2020,

should Fulton Hogan receive the

necessary resource consents.

Environment Canterbury and

the Selwyn District Council have

until next Thursday to check the

resource consent application for

completeness.

A further update on the

application is expected after

Thursday.

Quake agencies streamlined?

• By Julia Evans and Sophie

Cornish

GOVERNMENT earthquake

agencies could be streamlined

and transitioned back to local

leadership.

Since the earthquake, agencies

such as Otakaro Ltd, Regenerate

Christchurch and Development

Christchurch Ltd have played a

role in the region’s redevelopment.

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Minister Megan Woods

said yesterday she is considering

working towards a transition

back to local leadership.

The Crown and city council

will need to work together to

consider what the best arrangements

for local leadership are.

We are yet to have this conversation

with city council,” she said.

“This means moving from central

government continuing to

play extraordinary role in greater

Christchurch, towards a locallyled

and sustainable economy.”

No time line has been given

for when discussions could take

place.

Previously, city councillor Raf

Manji suggested merging the

three agencies, something Mayor

Lianne Dalziel also said city

council has queried, which could

help create “a more streamlined

structure for less money.”

Regenerate Christchurch has

come under fire for working too

slowly, as well as its spending.

It missed deadlines for submitting

its plans for the Avon

Otakaro River Corridor and

Cathedral Square last year and

The Star revealed it spent nearly

$500,000 on the Red Zone Futures

Exhibition to gather public

feedback.

It comes as Regenerate is

working on its long-term vision

for a “prosperous” and “vibrant”

city, chief executive Ivan Iafeta

said.

“Regenerate Christchurch

is now increasing its focus on

actualising Christchurch’s vision

to be a prosperous, vibrant

city. Best practice regeneration

requires a long-term vision and

collective efforts from the public,

private and community sectors.”

Mr Iafeta said conversations

around the forward work programme

would happen with

stakeholders in March after the

plan was submitted to the city

council and Dr

Woods.

“Regenerate

Christchurch’s

forward work

programme is

based around

the letter of

expectations, set

by the minister

and mayor, and

Ivan Iafeta

Regenerate Christchurch’s statement

of performance expectations,”

Mr Iafeta said.

“[It] will focus on agile, highimpact

and leverage opportunities

for both the public and private

Fire rages, homes at risk

CBD parking fix may cost ratepayers

Councillors

discuss options

in private

• By Julia Evans

SECRET DISCUSSIONS have

been held over how to fix parking

problems in the central city

which could come at a cost to

ratepayers.

City councillors met last week

behind-closed-doors to consider

a report on “central city reduced

fee parking.”

The city council has refused to

release the report to The Star, or

answer questions

about it.

It was

deemed “commercially

sensitive” for

the public and

city councillors

remain

tight-lipped

about what

Antony Gough the report

proposes.

But The Star has learned that

private car park owners and developers

have been approached to

see what role they can play.

BUSTLING: A new report on central city reduced fee

parking was discussed by the city council behind-closeddoors.

Central city retailers have

been struggling to compete with

suburban malls which offer free

parking.

But property developer

Antony Gough, who is building

a 400-space parking building

on Hereford St, said there has

been discussion with the council

around rates rebates or subsides

for private providers.

“We’re trying to encourage

them to talk to us about that.

Nothing has been finalised, but

we expect them to,” he said.

There were “various ways”

being investigated to help reduce

the cost and encourage people

back into the CBD, Mr Gough

said. The city council’s Lichfield

St and Art Gallery parking

buildings are free for the first

hour. After that it’s $2.80 at

Lichfield St and $1 per half hour

at the Art Gallery.

In comparison, it costs $2 to

park in The Crossing for two

hours and $2 per half hour

thereafter.

The report was left on the table

without a recommendation being

approved and will be debated

again by city councillors.

But city councillors Aaron

Keown, Sara Templeton, Yani

Johanson and Mike Davidson

voted against it being debated in

secret.

Cr Keown said the report

covered the “way forward” for

parking in the central city. But

would not go into the specifics

while the report was publicly

excluded.

“It’s ratepayer money so you

have to tell them the reasons why

you’re spending it . . . what I can

say is every single option is being

investigated to get people back

in town and using every single

parking space available.”

Cr Davidson said parts of

the report should be discussed

separately.

“We should have had the

chance to discuss the substantive

issue without going into the

detail and separate out the PX

[publicly excluded] reports.”

Central Ward city councillor

Deon Swiggs supported it being

publicly excluded.

It was

“vital” the

right decision

is made to

encourage

people back

into the

central city, he

said.

“We need to

balance what’s

good for the

Aaron Keown

city and be

completely

over top of that, otherwise we

may miss an opportunity here.”

Central City Business

Association chairman Brendan

Chase said it hadn’t been

involved in discussion.

However, cheaper parking in

the Lichfield St building had been

good for businesses.

“If you reduce the price, you

increase the occupancy

. . . for us, it’s about getting the

pedestrians who park their

cars. It’s pedestrians who are

shopping, not the cars,” he

said.

Clarence St to Matipo St,” the

residents said.

Riccarton Rd is not wide

enough to be a boulevard, the

residents said.

The new trees . . . will cast

a shadow on the southern side

of Riccarton Rd and prevent

sunlight reaching that side,

which in winter will lead to

damp and slippery footpaths for

pedestrians.”

The trees are part of stage two

of the Riccarton Rd upgrade,

scheduled to begin early next

year. Stage one of the project

included bus lanes from Deans

Ave to Harakeke St and was

fully completed last month.

But the bus lanes were deemed

“unusable” by Red Bus chief

executive Paul McNoe, who said

parked cars often blocked bus

lanes.

Driver’s neck broken

•From page 1

“THe tree that came down, it

was about 3-5m in off the side of

the road, so I didn’t even see it

falling because it was far back

. . . it got me square, absolute

bullseye,” he said.

The first person on the scene

happened to be a friend he knew

from Westport, who used his

four-wheel-drive to winch the

tree off Mr Walsh’s car.

However, Mr Walsh says

the “best part” of it all was the

response from the police officer

who attended the

scene.

Mr Walsh said his

warrant of fitness had

ran out about four

or five days before he

left.

The cop said to me,

while I was standing

there with a broken

neck, ‘hey, don’t worry

about that ticket

mate, we’re going to send you

compliance and if you get your

car sorted out, you won’t have to

pay.’”

“I couldn’t believe it, are you

serious mate? The car’s flat. I just

throw my hands up sometimes at

the powers that be,” he said.

Until yesterday, Mr Walsh had

been lying flat on his back in a

Ryan Walsh

neck-brace, unable to move or

eat.

He was looking forward to

changing into a different brace

and being able to sit up.

Following the crash, he was

taken to Grey Base Hospital

and transferred to Christchurch

Hospital the next day.

Said Mr Walsh: “We didn’t call

an ambulance because we were

on the West Coast . . . she’s pretty

laid back bro. We’re just chilling.

No one was making haste over

there.” He didn’t have any

insurance for his now squashed

car, so Mr Walsh said

he’s feeling “pretty

lucky and unlucky at

the same time.”

“It’s made a mess

of my wee car . . . I

reckon if I was in a

flashier car with an

air bag, I might not

have lived.” His friend

Peter Turner has

started a Givealittle

page to help Mr Walsh get a new

car so he can finishing moving

once he has recovered.

Disneyland

fund for

Megan gets

a $751 boost

• By Julia Evans

RICHIE McCAW, Sophie Pascoe

and Tom Walsh raised more than

$750 to help get Megan Hore to

Disneyland.

The 19-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.

The Star organised for the

sporting greats signed three

paintings of Mickey Mouse by

artist Rangi Downes, which were

then posted on Trade Me.

The auctions closed on Tuesday.

Top seller was McCaw, raising

$550. Pascoe and Walsh sold for

$101 and $100 each.

But Megan’s mother Marilyn,

who ran the auctions, said the

family was grateful to everyone

involved.

The same person bought all

three. We don’t know them, but

it’ll be interesting to see who it is

when we get in touch,” she said.

Mrs Hore said the funds raised

were “amazing” and would help

go towards the family trip to

Disneyland Paris. They have next

April earmarked.

Low income housing scheme to launch in March

• By Julia Evans

Vicki Buck

A SCHEME to get low to

medium income families

into their own homes will be

launched early next year.

The Christchurch Shared Equity

Scheme is planned to be open

for applications on March 1.

City council head of strategic

policy Emma Davis said: “That

is our planned start date once

we have a

confirmed

agreement

with a scheme

provider (a local,

registered

community

housing provider)

and a

Trustee Company

(which

will be the holder of the funds).”

Though city councillor Vicki

Buck, who has championed the

programme for the last four

years, was hoping it would be

before Christmas.

Cr Buck said the city council

had to wait until funding in the

Long Term Plan was finalised.

Now it is looking for a third

party management company.

“It’s a wee bit delayed, but I

suppose going live over Christmas

would be pretty difficult,”

she said.

HOME SWEET HOME: The city council’s Christchurch

Shared Equity Scheme will launch in March.

The $6 million half city council

and half Government fund

would provide an interest-free

second mortgage of up to 40 per

cent of the house purchase price.

The scheme targets those who

can only afford 30 per cent mortgage

debt. The fund will take an

equity share to help purchase the

house.

“Eligible households are

modest income ones which

have someone in full-time

employment who can initially

service their share of the mortgage.

From this potential group

of applicants priority will be

given to those who have median

household incomes or below,

and/or those who have children,

and/or those with some savings,”

Ms Davis said.

The guidelines about how

much can be applied for have not

been finalised.

But Cr Buck said that will be

announced by the third-party

operating agency, which has yet

to be decided. Ms Davis said that

would be before Christmas.

The concept was that you

wouldn’t pay any interest on the

investment. So say you’re buying

a house for $350,000 and you

need a deposit of 20 per cent,

$70,000 before the bank would

give you a mortgage but you only

have $35,000. Assuming you can

meet the mortgage repayments,

the fund would put in the extra

$35,000,” Cr Buck said.

When the house is then sold,

the fund would be repaid the

capital on the house, she said.

“But you would have got into

the property market and had

gains on your mortgage.”

Cr Buck said it was like having

help from “the bank of mum and

dad” but you have to pay it back.

“Once it’s going and I think

it will prove itself quite quickly,

the Government might look at

it country-wide to start getting

people out of long-term renting.”

Cr Buck said it would also create

stability for the children. She

had been approached by families

who had one income, young

children and savings.

“People are very keen to get

into their own house and make

it very much their own place,” Cr

Buck said.

Loneliness a problem in young – survey

QUALITY OF life in greater

Christchurch is the best it has

been since the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, according to the

latest Wellbeing Survey.

But it has revealed the extent

of loneliness in young people for

the first time.

The Canterbury District

Health Board released its survey

from May, done every six

months, to measure earthquake

recovery across the region.

It was the

first time a

question on

loneliness had

been included.

Nearly 15

per cent of 18

to 24-year-olds

Evon Currie

feel lonely most

of the time or

always, compared with three per

cent over 65.

“I’m interested in digging

deeper into the issue of loneliness

to determine whether

Government agencies and our

communities need to be playing

more of a role in encouraging

connections and a sense of belonging,

especially for our young

people,” Greater Christchurch

Psychosocial Governance Group

chairwoman Evon Currie said.

ISOLATION: The Wellbeing Survey has revealed the level

of loneliness in those 18 to 24 is significantly higher than

other age groups.

However, she said overall wellbeing

in greater Christchurch

has continued its upward trend

post-quake.

“Overall, the well-being of our

community is in the best shape it

has been since the earthquakes.

Eight in 10 greater Christchurch

residents rate their quality of life

positively, stress levels continue

to fall.”

More than two-thirds still

say they have been negatively

impacted by stress in the last 12

months.

The proportion reporting

stress at this frequency has

reduced from 80 per cent in

September 2012 to 68 per cent in

May,” the survey said.

Groups experiencing the

lowest well-being across the

board include Māori, those on

low incomes, and those with

a disability or chronic health

condition.

“Being able to live the type

of life you value shouldn’t be

the preserve of the wealthy or

healthy. We need to do more to

ensure that no one is left behind.

That should be the ultimate

measure of a successful community,”

Ms Currie said.

Four in five find it easy to be

themselves in New Zealand.

“This proportion differs significantly

by ethnicity, with those of

European ethnicity being more

likely to find it easy (84 per cent)

and those of Māori (76 per cent)

or Pacific/Asian/Indian (51 per

cent) ethnicity being less likely to

find it easy,” the survey said.

It found 13 per cent of residents

have more than 11 standard

drinks a week and 29 per

cent have more than six.

On the other side of the scale,

44 per cent of residents rate their

health as excellent or very good,

while 18 per cent rate it as fair or

poor.

More than nine in 10 said they

feel very or fairly safe in their

home after dark and the city

during the day, while just five per

cent feel unsafe.

“However, when walking alone

in their neighbourhood after

dark 68 per cent feel safe and 26

per cent feel unsafe,’’ it said.

KEY FACTS

•Nearly 15 per cent of 18 to

24-year-olds feel lonely or

isolated always or most of

the time, compared with

less than three per cent of

those over 65.

•More than eight in 10

greater Christchurch

residents (81 per cent) rate

their quality of life positively.

•67 per cent are satisfied

that their household income

meets their everyday needs

•69 per cent are satisfied

with community facilities.

Five per cent are dissatisfied.

•73 per cent are satisfied

with access to transport,

while eight per cent

are dissatisfied. This is a

decrease in satisfaction from

June 2017 (decreasing from

80 per cent to 73 per cent).

•79 per cent are satisfied

with the overall quality of

the home in which they

live. Ten per cent expressed

dissatisfaction. This is an

increase in satisfaction from

June 2017 (increasing from

74 per cent to 79 per cent).

•80 per cent are satisfied

with their access to the

natural environment, while

five per cent expressed

dissatisfaction.

Regenerate Christchurch is responsible for developing the

regeneration plan for the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor and has

considered thousands of ideas from the community, as well as

surveys, technical reports and studies.

We are now pleased to invite written comments on the

following documents from 14 November 2018:

The Draft Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan, with the primary purpose

of enabling short, medium and long-term uses of approximately 600ha of land within the

Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor, including the area previously known as the residential red zone.

The Proposed Partial Revocation of the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan and the

Proposed Partial Revocation of the Land Use Recovery Plan, which would, in combination

(if approved) result in the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan being the sole

Regeneration/Recovery Plan applying to the regeneration area.

Women only

time slots at

swimming pools

• By Julia Evans

FOR TWO hours on Sunday

it was only women who were

allowed to swim in the teaching

pool at Pioneer.

City council head of recreation,

sports and events Nigel Cox said

20 females and a pre-school age

boy attended the first session over

the weekend.

“Ranging in age from preschool

to seniors,” he said.

Mr Cox said the women-only

sessions will be held at Aquagym

and Wharenui pools, as well as

Pioneer Recreation and Sports

Centre, in conjunction with

Christchurch Resettlement Services.

The pool is booked for this

session to run every Sunday from

1.30–3.30pm,” he said.

The idea was suggested by the

city council’s multicultural subcommittee

in June, which asked

staff to look into the potential of

offering women-only swimming

sessions at particular times.

The session sets out to cater to

women of other cultures, particularly

Muslim women who generally

aren’t able to swim in public.

But also other women who do

not feel comfortable swimming

with men.

Townhouses force woman to move

• By Julia Evans

A SPREYDON woman who

had five two-storey townhouses

built less than 1m away from her

house is packing up and moving.

Bolton Ave homeowner Kim

Mehlhopt said she has sold her

property and will be moving out

in the next two weeks.

“Just fed up with noise and

parking issues. All that came

with it, all we knew would come

with it,” she said.

Last year, The Star revealed

JSJ Investments was building

townhouses next door to Ms

Mehlhopt’s home of 15 years –

the garage less than 1m away.

But situations like Ms

Mehlhopt’s may be avoided in

the future.

City council staff are investigating

how tightly-packed

housing is effecting the community

and whether it needs to ask

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Minister Megan Woods to

change the District Plan.

The work into high density

housing will be relevant. The

work will involve reviewing

high density developments and

reporting back to the Regulatory

Performance Committee on the

initial findings and next steps,”

city council head of resource

consents John Higgins said.

Ms Mehlhopt said the development

devalued her home, cost

her privacy, and the street’s

family-orientated appeal. Construction

of the townhouses was

finished earlier this year.

The council never did anything

about it, so I’m moving,”

she said.

Under the current District

Plan, zoning for the development

was compliant.

Mr Higgins said consents were

issued in accordance with the

Resource Management Act and

Building Act.

“Having said that, following

the concerns raised by Ms

Mehlhopt, the council did talk

to and meet with both parties

on several occasions to explore

if there were any mitigation

measures/improvements that

could be undertaken that would

improve the situation for Ms

Mehlhopt.”

One of the ideas was to re-site

the house on her property as part

of her EQC repairs.

However, Mr Higgins said

no mitigation or improvements

were agreed upon.

COMPLETE: Kim Mehlhopt

is moving after townhouses

were built less than 1m

away from her Spreydon

home.

turned up.

If you have zero clue of

what being the odd one out

feels like, being a dad at a

baby activity is normally a

great introduction.

In my experience, outside

of weekends and public

holidays, dads at said events

are proverbial unicorns;

rare and naturally herd

animals.

On Monday I took

Vittoria to our first Toes

and Giggles session as the

stay-at-home parent. It’s a

music and movement thing;

songs, toys, other babies

with coffee and biscuits

after.

I was pleased to see two

other dads (also in their

first couple of weeks on the

job so to speak) come in. It

will be cool to have some

contemporaries at some of

the same events to share

stories and compare notes

with.

We didn’t get much

time to chat, Vittoria

made multiple beelines for

the door, so I’m looking

forward to the next session

to talk about the stay-athome-dad

role.

A POLICY usually used

in nightclubs and bars

is being implemented at

Taiora QE II Recreation

and Sports Centre.

Since opening at the end

of May, there have been 30

occasions where staff at the

facility have had to apply

a one-in, one-out policy to

customers.

The method is used to

control numbers when a

building may be at maximum

capacity, meaning a

person is only able to enter

when another person leaves.

As for Vittoria’s first

Santa photo, that brought

a small revelation to

light.

When I was a kid, I

remember being excited

about Santa photos and

getting a chance to get

my order in before

Christmas.

Going by Vittoria’s face

when jolly St Nick walked

out for the photo, I’ve

discovered that excitement

is something you have to

work up to.

She looked terrified and

fascinated all at once and

flat out refused to be too

close.

So for her photo, she’s

sitting on my wife Laura’s

Nigel Cox said.

Out of the 30 occasions

it was implemented, 20 of

them where in the

first eight weeks of opening.

“Of those, eight had been

during the July school

holidays, and some of these

had been only for a short

time,” said Mr Cox.

Since mid to late July,

the policy has been less

frequent (10 occasions) and

I’m really looking

forward to getting the

REMEMBERING: Christchurch author Anna Rogers has released a book

Stand For All Time, which tells the story of the sinking of the Marquette

during World War I and the Nurses’ Memorial Chapel that was built to

honour the people who died.

Nurses’ WW1 stories

One of the greatest scandals of World War I, the sinking of the

Marquette was a poignant moment in New Zealand history. In her

new book Stand For All Time, Christchurch author Anna Rogers tells

the stories of the 32 Kiwis killed and the Nurses’ Memorial Chapel

that was built to honour three local nurses who lost their lives in the

sinking. Sophie Cornish reports

NONA HILDYARD was the first nurse

from Lyttelton to enlist for overseas

service.

A few years later, she died in the

Mediterranean Sea. She was one of three

Christchurch Hospital nurses killed

when a German torpedo sunk the British

transport ship, the Marquette, in October

1915.

The tragedy shocked the nation, with 32

New Zealand men and women killed in a

disaster that should have never happened.

Medical personnel were never supposed

to be aboard the ship, which was not

marked as a hospital ship and therefore

sailed with no protection from the Geneva

Convention, making it vulnerable to

a German attack.

The question of why the New Zealanders

were not put on the hospital ship,

Grantully Castle, was never answered in

the post-sinking inquiry. Grantully Castle

was sailing from Alexandria, Egypt, to

Salonika, Greece, at the same time and to

the same destination as the Marquette,

and had room on board.

Said Rogers: “Medical personnel and

equipment should never have been on

a transport carrying ammunition . . .

A NUCLEAR expert and

world peace activist is

coming to Christchurch

to discuss the global arms

crisis.

Physicist and co-director

of Ivy League Princeton

University’s science and

global security programme

Zia Mian will be presenting

a talk called The Crises of

Nuclear Arms Control and

Nonproliferation: Nuclear

Weapons and the 21st Century

at Canterbury University

on December 11.

Dr Mian’s work focuses

on nuclear disarmament,

arms control and nonproliferation

issues.

He is cochairman

of the

International Panel

on Fissile Materials,

a group of independent

experts

from 16 countries

working to reduce

global stockpiles

of nuclear weapon

material.

He is also directing the

Project on Peace and Security

in South Asia.

no one will ever know why (No. 1 New

Zealand Stationary Hospital) was sent

to Salonika on the Marquette. Maritime

historian Gavin Maclean has described it

as a ‘a stupid error’.”

Miss Hildyard was born in 1888 and attended

West Lyttelton School and Lyttelton

District High School before training

as a nurse at Christchurch Hospital.

Like Miss Hildyard, Lorna Rattray

began her nurses training at Christchurch

Hospital, two days before her 36th

birthday.

Miss Rattray was born in Dunedin, but

moved to Christchurch to attend a private

school, now known as St Margaret’s College.

She left New Zealand on the hospital

ship Maheno, along with Miss Hildyard

and Margaret Rogers, a nurse also trained

at Christchurch Hospital.

Another nurse on the ship, Lottie Le

Gallais, said Miss Hildyard and Margaret

were “the life of the Maheno coming

over.”

Margaret wrote a song called The

Nurses of New Zealand, which was

performed as part of the on-board

entertainment.

His research focuses on

his native country of Pakistan,

its nuclear weapons

programme and arms race

with India.

Dr Mian’s trip

has been sponsored

by the Ministry of

said it has also

invited 2017 Nobel

NOT FORGOTTEN: Christchurch nurses Nona Hildyard (left), Lorna

Rattray and Margaret Rogers died when the Marquette was sunk during

World War 1.

told in new book

When Miss Hildyard was injured in

the bombing, she began singing, before

suffering heart failure and dying in the

water.

On the day the Marquette set out from

Egypt to Greece, a trip which it never

completed, Margaret posted her last ever

letter home.

In it, she wrote about the war and its

hunger, filth and suffering.

There is no romance about war . . .

how thankful I am every day that I came

to do what I could to help and relieve our

brave boys,” said the letter.

Only two nurses’ bodies were ever

recovered, one of them was Margaret.

In 1927, The Nurses’ Memorial Chapel

on Riccarton Ave was opened to honour

the three Christchurch women who

died. However, Rogers says the chapel is

so much more than that.

“It also has wider significance. It is

the country’s first hospital chapel and

•741 people were aboard the

Marquette when it was sunk by

a German Torpedo in October

1915.

•167 were killed, including

32 New Zealanders, who were

members of the No 1 New

Zealand Stationary Hospital.

The ship was sailing from

Egypt to Salonika, Greece.

•It was positioned

between Greece and Turkey

when it was sunk in the Aegean

it’s the only memorial chapel to women

who perished in all wars and the 1918

influenza epidemic. It is thought to be

the only purpose-built hospital chapel

in the world that commemorates nurses

who died in the Great War,” Rogers

said.

In spite of being threatened with

demolition and being earthquakedamaged,

the 90-year-old chapel was

restored and officially reopened in

October by Governor-General Dame

Patsy Reddy.

When the Marquette sunk, three

Christchurch men also died. One was

Sergeant Major Geoffrey Baker who was

a Canterbury representative in hockey.

He was known as a prominent

swimmer but drowned while swimming

away from the Marquette.

Private Bassell Fricker also died, along

with Private John Ross, who died on his

25th birthday.

Sea, part of the Mediterranean

Sea.

The ship was also carrying

500 men from the ammunition

column of the British 29th

Division, 500 mules, some

horses and several ammunition

wagons.

The first mention of New

Zealand personnel being

involved in the sinking was in

The Star, when it was an evening

newspaper.

Call to fast track Yaldhurst Rd lights

• By Anan Zaki

PEOPLE IN Avonhead and Russley

are urging the New Zealand Transport

Agency to install traffic lights

sooner than it is planning at a

“dangerous” intersection.

Residents have complained

about safety at the Yaldhurst

and Withells Rds intersection to

NZTA and the city council since

2014. NZTA manages Yaldhurst

Rd as it is part of State Highway

73.

NZTA senior traffic and

safety engineer David Scarlet said

it is planning to design traffic lights in the

current financial year.

Somnath

Sarkar

Bagchi

“We need to determine the design

and then the estimated cost, then decide

whether to proceed with construction. If

it goes ahead, it could be in 2019/20,” he

said.

Avonhead Community Group

chairman Somnath Sarkar Bagchi

wants the traffic lights fast tracked.

Prof Bagchi said due to traffic

increases, commuters are “risking

their lives” at the intersection

everyday.

“A few simple traffic lights

installation should not take time like

another two or three years.”

“I am glad that finally NZTA has

initiated some process and thinking on

this particular intersection,” he said.

got away with $1120.

Hira was jailed for four

years in the 1990s for

manslaughter, after leaving

a Christchurch nightclub

drunk, running a red

light in the inner-city and

crashing into a taxi.

The cab driver was

thrown from his car and

killed, while passengers

in both vehicles suffered

injuries including fractures

and head wounds.

Hira was sentenced

in the Dunedin District

Court last week on the

robbery charge. He also

admitted charges of

blackmail and receiving,

as well as a slew of driving

and drugs charges from

between January and May

this year.

The court heard he

went to the BNZ branch

at lunchtime, parking his

Mazda in the nearby council

car park.

Hira walked in wearing

a black hat, a singlet

covering his face, wielding

the gun-shaped item and

carrying a back pack.

He pointed the wheel

brace at the teller “in

a manner to make her

believe that he possessed a

firearm” and yelled at her,

demanding cash. Hira said

he would use the “firearm”

if she did not comply.

While police hunted

for Hira, he was running

another money-making

scheme.

The Mongrel Mob

prospect had befriended

a shopkeeper — whose

identity was suppressed by

the courts — and began

blackmailing him.

Hira claimed he had

evidence of the man in an

intimate clinch with an underage

girl, something the

gang might react violently

to should they find out.

Hira made dozens of orders

for tobacco, cellphone

top-up cards, fuel vouchers

and groceries, which the

victim, aged in his 50s,

would deliver to him on a

weekly basis.

“He harangued and

nagged the victim constantly

by phone and text

and stalked him . . . while

he worked,” court documents

said.

Cellphone records

showed clear evidence

of the defendant selling

methamphetamine

and cannabis between

March and May. When

police searched his home

they found $1000 of

methamphetamine and

a “large supply” of small

plastic bags, commonly

used by dealers.

Park plan for school site

• By Louis Day

PLANS FOR a new $1.2

million park on the old

Redcliffs School site have

been released.

The city council has

proposed converting

the site into a park to

compensate for the loss of

Redcliffs Park, which will

accommodate the new

school.

The draft landscape plan is

open for public consultation

until December 17. Once

consultation has finished, the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board will

make a recommendation on

the park’s future to the city

council.

It would be called Te

Papa Kura, a name gifted

by local iwi. Papa means

park and kura can mean

both school and red.

One junior and one

intermediate football field,

a toilet, drinking fountain,

additional furniture and

new signage will all be

added to the park.

The existing playground,

furniture, car park and a

New Neighbourhood offers

coMMUNIty & LIfestyLe close to the city

An attractive new neighbourhood

on the outskirts of Christchurch

being developed by reputable

building company Generation Homes

is creating plenty of interest among

new-home buyers.

Comprising a limited number of

sites, the Copper Ridge subdivision

on Halswell Junction Road offers the

opportunity to live in an exclusive

residential area conveniently close

to Christchurch city. New residents

can enjoy all the retail and service

amenities of Halswell as well as

historic parks and trails for recreational

enjoyment near by.

Copper Ridge is ideal for people at all

stages of life, including young families,

with the new Knights Stream Primary

School next door, and a bike track,

skate park and sports field across the

road. In fact, the aim of Generation

Homes is to build communities,

not just new builds, company

spokesperson Nadja Beker says.

We aim to create

security for families, fun

for the kids to play outside

with their neighbours and

friends, and for people to

know each other and look

out for each other.

The subdivision lots are being released

in six stages. Stages one and two

were released earlier this year with

introductory pricing and there are

a small number of lots left in these

stages, Nadja says.

“Based on the success of stages one

and two, stage three release has just

been brought forward, and includes

nine lots.”

The lot sizes range from 250sqm

duplex lots up to large 715sqm lots,

with the majority being 500sqm to

650sqm. Prices for the house and

land packages start at $459,000,

with the majority being priced

between $550,000 and $700,000.

The subdivision covenants will

ensure a high-quality environment

and building designs throughout the

development.” Nadja says.

Generation Homes is an established,

national home builder with

considerable experience in the

Christchurch market, and specialising

in providing home and land packages

in the most desirable locations.

“We develop architecturally designed

house plans for each of our sites, and

can change existing plans or develop

new plans to suit individual clients’

requirements. “The Generation Homes

team works in partnership with each

of their clients to deliver their dream

home and to make the building

process as easy and stress free as

possible.” Nadja says.

“One of the key advantages for clients

working with Generation Homes is

that we provide people certainty

by offering fully fixed prices and a

guaranteed move-in date.”

Generation Homes also has the

services of interior designer Mark

Evans of Indigo Designers to call on.

Mark undertakes a complete colour

consultation with every client, ensuring

the décor of their new home matches

their personality and lifestyle.

Dumped

rubbish

frustrates

residents

• By Anan Zaki

FRUSTRATION is mounting

over rubbish bags being dumped

on roads.

A number of residents went

on Facebook to report that black

rubbish bags have been dumped

near the Quarry View subdivision

in Halswell and in rural Selwyn

since November last year.

Prebbleton resident Miriam

Martin said on most occasions the

bags are full of discarded noodles

or other food scraps.

But household rubbish has also

been dumped. Last week household

rubbish was found dumped

on Tosswill Rd, Prebbleton.

“It’s a bit weird as to where they

are coming from,” Dr Martin said.

The rubbish is also only

found on quiet rural roads, she

said. “They are obviously going

through the back roads from

Halswell or to Halswell,” Dr Martin

said.

She notified the Selwyn District

Council about the rubbish last

week. “The food scraps are attracting

flocks of birds, rats and

mice. It’s a health hazard,” Dr

Martin said.

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

A PROP maker who has worked

on some of the biggest movies

to be filmed in New Zealand has

helped bring Ballantynes’ iconic

Christmas windows to life this

year.

Simon Hames has led a high

flying career working on the sets

of King Kong and The Lord of the

Rings.

In 1999 he won the Supreme

WOW Award for making wearable

chairs for the World of

Wearable Art festival.

After starting work as a visual

merchandise team member this

year, Mr Hames was tasked with

building the Christmas window.

With the talent of Mr Hames

on board, it was the reason Ballantynes

decided to create the

windows in-house this year as

opposed to outsourcing.

Visual merchandise manager

Danielle Casey, who led the charge

for this year’s theme, also has a

distinguished background in design,

having created windows for

department stores Harrods and

Selfridges in the United Kingdom. ​

Pearl Schwalger-Smith, who

has worked in a range of roles at

Ballantynes in the past 10 years

has also been heavily involved in

designing the project.

It is the first time in about 20

years the windows have been

designed in-house.

Miss Casey said the project has

been a “labour of love” with her

team working on it since April.

She said the theme of mice was

inspired by popular children’s

films featuring mice including

The Borrowers, Mouse Hunt and

Stuart Little.

Ballantynes has made

Christmas extra special for kids

in more ways than one this

year, creating a limited edition

children’s book to match the

window’s theme.

The book called The Merry

Mice of Dunstable House was

donated to every primary school

in the city and Timaru.

The setting for the Christmas

window and book is at Dunstable

House, the original building

where Ballantynes was established

in 1854.

It tells the tale of a little family

of mischievous mice living with

humans at Christmas time.

Ballantynes has also spread

THE VALUE OF

anD DOCUMENTATION

ITS vaLue In

faMILy IN FAMILY HISToRy HISTORY

ReSeaRcH

RESEARCH

As children, most of us hear stories about our

ancestors. The generations who have gone before and

the facts and happenings behind their adventures. It’s

almost as if our own personal storybook has come to

life with characters we are personally related to.

As the years progress, sometimes we meet these

people, but many times we don’t and that is where

the value of documenting stories with references

makes all the difference to the current and future

generations. Maybe it helps us humans to know

where we come from and our lineage.

Genealogy has become a global hobby. People from

all corners of the planet and every culture are taking

interest in their family history.

Their number one cardinal rule is that “Without

Proof there is No Truth” so as you start your own

search about your ancestors or join your family who

are already searching, don’t forget to take the time to

record your findings.

Most genealogy is never published for the world to

see, but for family eyes only.

Documentation will make your

research easier and faster

Surprising, but true. Taking time to document where

you got your facts (or allegations) will save you time

later on in your research. As a hobby research can be

interrupted for weeks, months or years, depending on

what is happening in your life.

Documentation helps prevent

duplication of research

In the course of our genealogical research, we

can’t help but spend some time researching family

members others have already researched. Eventually,

someone else will be researching some of the very

same relatives we are looking at today. Most of us

don’t have the time to do only an “original research”

on all of our families, because with every person

we find there are two more (his or her parents) for

us to find as well. We depend on quality previous

research to speed us along on our quest. Without

documentation, we don’t know what sources

somebody might have already used. This means

we will likely use some of the same sources earlier

family historian have used. This wastes our time and

resources which could be used to solve questions

others haven’t yet answered.

Documentation gives others

confidence in your research

This is the old standby reason you read in every

genealogy textbook, but that does not make it any

less true. Indeed, nobody seems to argue with the

genealogist’s maxim: Without proof, there is no truth.

The problem is that many people, especially those just

starting out, do not plan on publishing their research

findings, as they are just doing it for their own

interest. Throughout the course of your research you

are constantly using the research of others which may

be a published family history, a brief biographical

sketch, or a computerized lineage from an Ancestral

File or the World Family Tree.

Doesn’t have to be hard

Perhaps the biggest objection to documentation is the

dismay at the necessity of proper formatting when

citing sources. Record enough information so that

another researcher can determine what you have

searched.

It is advised that as a family historian, you create a

research log or calendar of searches. This is the value

of documentation for the following reasons:

• A research log speeds your research by easily

listing just what sources you have already searched,

and what your results were.

• It also limits duplication of your research efforts

by reminding you what you searched, when you

searched, and who you were looking for in that

source.

• Lastly, it is a quick way to provide confidence to

others with whom you share your findings, as you can

easily photocopy or print out a copy of your log.

Consistent formatting is useful, helpful, and even

required on some sites and very helpful in your

search for your family history.

THe HoLLIeS

on TouR

New Zealand’s love affair with Rock n Roll Hall

of Famers, The Hollies, is about to get a whole lot

hotter this summer as they legendary band today

announces they’re bringing their The Road Is

Long Tour to eight cities in February and March

2019.

Having enjoyed sell-out tours of New Zealand,

performing hits including Just One Look, Bus

Stop, Carrie Anne, He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My

Brother; Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress, and

The Air That I Breathe their concerts have come

to embody the spirit of summer here.

Tickets to The Road is Long Tour go on sale on

Monday October 1st.

From their first recording at Abbey Road in 1963,

they became the face of the legendary British

Rock Revolution, achieving more Top 10 hits

than almost any band in history. They have never

missed a single year of live performances in over

a half a century and have retained exactly the

same “sound” and musical quality as they had

when they first hit the charts back in the Swinging

Sixties.

Original member, Singer and lead guitarist,

Tony Hicks says: “People get what they come for.

The trademark Hollies’ harmonies, our musical

diversity and lots of original songs from our

extensive musical back catalogue.”

Hollies drummer since 1963, Bobby Elliott ...

“We still tour the world performing to sell-out

audiences. Our loyal fans keep coming back for

more and we’re happy to oblige. A Hollies live

performance usually lasts for over two hours.

There’s no finer feeling than taking that final

bow and seeing the sea of beaming friendly faces

standing before us”

The Hollies are long time lovers of New Zealand,

(among other things our wine!), Hicks says “we’re

really looking forward to playing 4 cities we’ve not

visited for many years - Invercargill, Dunedin,

Nelson, New Plymouth, and we’re also returning

to Christchurch, Wellington, Hamilton and

Auckland ... it’s our biggest New Zealand tour in a

The Hollies have an enviable record - over 30

charting singles on the UK Singles chart and 22

on the Billboard Hot 100, with major world-wide

hits that included “Just One Look” “Look Through

Any Window”, “I Can’t Let Go”, “Bus Stop”, “Stop

Stop Stop”, “On A Carousel”, “Carrie Anne”,

“Jennifer Eccles”, and later “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s

My Brother”, “Long Cool Woman in a Black

Dress”, and “The Air That I Breathe”.

They remain one of the few British groups of the

early 1960s, along with The Rolling Stones, that

have never disbanded and continue to record and

perform. In recognition of their achievements, the

Hollies were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall

of Fame in 2010.

technology

More and more we’re finding ourselves standing

at the intersection of humanity and technology.

Whether we’re working side-by-side with

autonomous robots on the factory floor, spreading

the happy news about a new addition to the

family on Facebook, or asking Siri to help us get

from point A to point B as quickly as possible,

all aspects of our lives are closely connected to

technology in one way or another.

Some of those “connections” are downright

threatening. The Fourth Industrial Revolution,

which includes developments in previously

disjointed fields such as artificial intelligence (AI),

machine learning, robotics, nanotechnology,

3D printing, and genetics and biotechnology, is

expected to cause widespread disruption not only

to business models but also to labour markets

over the next five years, the World Economic

Forum reports, with “enormous change predicted

in the skill sets needed to thrive in the new

landscape.”

According to an Oxford study, developed nations

can expect to see job loss rates of up to 47%

within the next 25 years. Additionally, a Pew

Research Centre study found that “robotics and

artificial intelligence will permeate wide segments

of daily life by 2025, with huge implications for a

range of industries such as healthcare, transport

and logistics, customer service, and home

maintenance.”

Most of us are increasingly unprepared for this

rapidly changing world of working. Should we

all focus on enhancing our technical skills? What

about those so called ‘soft skills,’ like critical

thinking, communication, empathy, mindfulness,

resiliency, decision-making, self-awareness, etc.,

that make us better leaders.

In this era of technology and automation, where

news articles foreshadow a time when robots will

take over our jobs, technology vendors churn out

new innovations on an almost-daily basis, and

companies scramble to find alternative sources of

labour, where do the humanities stand?

Curiosity, creativity, and empathy aren’t unruly

traits that must be reined in. You can bring a

humanist’s grace to our rapidly evolving high-tech

future.

HavIng a WILL In

THe MoDeRn Day

froM ASpire

CAnterbury

You may have heard about the

statistics in relation to New

Zealanders and Wills. Almost 40%

of us do not have a Will in place. For

a nation whose people are known

for their hard-work and ingenuity,

it seems uncharacteristic that so

many of us do not have a Will.

Having a Will in place gives you a

way to make sure your hard-earned

assets are administered how you

want them to be, and how any

dependents, such as your spouse and

children, are to be looked after on

your passing.

What happens if you don’t have

a Will? In means, you have

died ‘intestate’ and your estate

(everything you own and all debts

you owe) will be administered under

the Administration Act 1969. The

Act sets out a formula for how your

estate is to be divided between your

family. Should you have no family

members surviving you, then your

entire estate goes to the Crown.

Needless to say, this formula may

not result in an ideal outcome you

were thinking.

No Will? The first thing to consider

is – who you want to be the executor

of your estate. This is the person

who you appoint to administer your

estate until it has been distributed

to the people you have named in

your Will. This leads to the second

consideration – who you want to

receive your estate. You may have

specific items which you wish to

leave to specific people. You may

want to make gifts to charities as

well as your family. It is important to

receive legal advice on how you will

leave your estate. A well-crafted Will

will reduce the risk of a challenge

after you have passed away.

There are a number of ways

someone can challenge a Will. A

family member may claim you owed

a moral duty to provide for them

under the Family Protection Act

1955. The Property (Relationships)

Act 1976 gives a spouse or de facto

partner the ability to claim half of

any relationship property. A person

may claim that you made a promise

to make provision for them under

the Law Reform (Testamentary

Promises) Act 1949.

Even if you do have a Will, we

recommend you keep this updated.

The law is ever changing. Call us to

ask any questions, 03 352 2293

Arthritis

There are more than 140

different types of arthritis,

each of which affects

you and your joints

in different

ways. Most of

the adults with

arthritis in New

Zealand have

osteoarthritis.

Other very common

types are gout arthritis

and rheumatoid arthritis.

Learning about which kind of

arthritis you have will help you

manage your condition better.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most

common form of arthritis.

It affects the whole joint,

particularly the protective

cushion of cartilage covering

the ends of the bones.

Although often described as

simply due to ‘wear and tear’,

it is now thought to be the

result of a number of factors

including inflammation, injury

or ageing.

Gout Arthritis

Gout arthritis is the second

most common form of

arthritis in New Zealand, and

particularly affects Mãori and

Pacific Island people. Sharp

crystals of uric acid

form in and around

the joint, causing

excruciating pain

and swelling

(often in the

big toe). Gout

arthritis attacks can

come on quickly. If

untreated, gout arthritis

can become chronic, leading to

permanent joint damage.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a

common inflammatory form

of arthritis that causes painful,

stiff, swollen joints and can

affect people of any age. Instead

of protecting the body from

infection, the immune system

attacks healthy tissue instead,

causing inflammation and joint

damage. As an autoimmune

disease, rheumatoid arthritis

can also affect other parts of

the body.People of any age can

develop arthritis, including

young children

On 5 December, Volunteering New Zealand will

celebrate International Volunteer Day and its own

30th anniversary of supporting the community! What

an occasion. International Volunteer Day (IV Day),

a United Nations led initiative, is celebrated annually

and is an opportunity to show our appreciation to

our region’s volunteers, because individuals and

communities benefit considerably as a result of

volunteers and volunteering. Our celebration on 5

December will reflect on the 30 years that have passed

and our role in those years and look forward to the

work we will continue to do in the future.

We will also be introducing some volunteers who will

talk about how volunteering has impacted on their

own lives.

Volunteering Canterbury has over 230 volunteer roles

available on its database, www.volcanmatch.com.

These roles include things like helping at schools with

reading, driving people to receive medical treatments

or to social events, mentoring youngsters, and getting

out in the environment building and maintaining

walking tracks and gardens.

Volunteering Canterbury’s passion is for inclusivity

in volunteering – so if you don’t have access to

a computer, call us on 366-2442 and make an

appointment to come in and see us at our office in

Tuam Street, a few minutes’ walk from the central bus

depot.

THe neW

a200

by ross KiDDie

I’ve often been known to talk to my cars, it’s usually

when one of them is broken or has stopped

inexplicably, or when I have grief fixing a fault.

Those words are hardly ever complimentary.

However, I recently found myself talking constantly

and politely to my latest evaluation car – a

Mercedes-Benz A200. By saying: “Hey Mercedes,’’

and entering into a conversation with voice

within the car you can initiate a raft of automated

functions such as opening and closing the sunroof

inner, changing the radio station, displaying

heads-up, or even guidance to a particular address,

just to name a few of the many features it is

capable of.

Voice recognition isn’t new, it is even available

in many budget cars, but the A200 is different

and the operations are up a level or two from the

mainstream. If you like to do things manually,

that’s still possible, much of that can be done

through a wide touch screen device that stretches

from the traditional dash panel through to the

centre of the vehicle.

Of course, the A200 isn’t at the bottom of the price

structure, at $60k ($70,000 for the test car), there

is a bit of a capital outlay, but there is a lot on the

A200 even without the extra adornments. There is

also a surprise within the driveline. The A200 now

has a 1.3-litre engine, and if you think that’s a bit

wimpy you’d better revaluate. The four-cylinder

turbocharged unit pumps out a healthy 120kW,

and with 250Nm of torque on tap there is a stroppy

little power plant under the bonnet. Mercedes-

Benz claim an 8sec time to reach 100km/h from

a standstill. You can tell by the feel beneath the

throttle that it’s a zingy, lively engine that delights

in working hard, yet, it is also the fuel miser you’d

expect from a small displacement unit. It is rated at

5.7-litres per 100km (50mpg) on a combined cycle

which sits well with my test figures – an average

of 7l/100km (41mpg) was registering on the fuel

usage meter, along with a stunning 4.6l/100km

(62mpg) instantaneous figure sitting at a steady

100km/h (engine speed 1800rpm).

Combining economy and performance is never an

easy build, yet that is certainly the case with the

A200, it is a real darling to be behind the wheel

of. The engine is honest and it delivers smoothly

through a seven-speed double-clutch gearbox

which you treat as if it was a traditional automatic,

it’s only at take-off where it is a little abrupt, but

thereafter the changes are quick and smooth.

Of course, paddle-shifters are fitted for those who

like to take control of the gearshift protocols,

and a sport mode can be selected just to enhance

engine urgency a little. Not that it needs any

encouragement, it is a willing worker to the

redline, and it does so with a soft engine tone.

On the road the A200 is a lot of fun. It offers

decisive cornering characteristics with a firm

steering feel that delivers surety and direction.

Mercedes-Benz has a strong reputation for

performance, and the A200 is a worthy recipient

of the badge of the three-pointed star. However, it

is the entry level model, and for that reason it also

needs to be practical. It’s not a big car, but it is airy

inside, and all those on board are treated to high

seat comfort and just enough space so that long

journeys aren’t taxing.

Married at First Sight couple make up

Ex-hubby’s bid

to sell ring a

‘selfless move’

• By Jessica Wilson and

Julia Evans

WHILE their relationship

ended in tears, Married at First

Sight contestant Julia Malley

is fully supportive of her exhusband’s

bid to sell his wedding

ring to raise money for a child in

need.

But she is holding onto her’s

for now.

When Dunedin’s Dave

McClelland’s marriage to Ms

Malley, a media consultant for

Stuff in Christchurch, broke up

this year, he was left with a ninecarat

white gold wedding band

worth about $1600.

The pair were matched by

experts, agreed to marry when

they first met and had to decide

if they wanted to remain married

by the end of the series.

Rather than keep or sell the

ring, Mr McClelland gave it to

a Dunedin family hoping to

raise $150,000 for surgery in the

United States. It sold for $1021.

“I 100 per cent support him.

BROKEN: Julia Malley and Dave McClelland’s relationship on

Married at First Sight did not end well, but the pair are now

on speaking terms.

PHOTOS: MEDIAWORKS ​

I think it’s a good thing he’s

doing . . . I think it was a great,

selfless move and I support him

wholeheartedly,” Ms Malley said.

She said she still has her ring

and has not decided what to do

with it yet.

Three-year-old twins Harry

and Ollie Finch, of Dunedin,

were born prematurely at 29

weeks after having twin-to-twin

transfusion syndrome.

At six weeks old, Harry was

diagnosed with cerebral palsy

and will not be able to walk or

stand independently.

He has been accepted for a

$150,000 surgery in the US,

which will give him a better

chance of walking on his own.

Mr McClelland played rugby

with Harry’s dad, Hayden, years

ago and offered to give them the

ring to auction. ‘

‘I think it’s [the ring] just the

final reminder of what was not

meant to be,’’ he said.

‘‘I just really felt that someone

else could benefit from it.’’

Mr McClelland took the ring

to the Finchs’ house on Monday

night and met Harry.

Although

the ring was

worth about

$1600, he was

not sure how

much could

be raised

from it.

‘‘If it’s

marketed

well and

shared well

with all of my

Dave

McClelland

followers, then it’s one of those

things, who knows?

Ms Malley said the pair were

back on friendly terms after not

speaking to each other.

“It changes every day with us,

but it’s all good now,” Ms Malley

said.

Mr McClelland said after a

rocky period after the show, they

were talking again.

“We’re working on a friendship.”

Permanent

alcohol ban for

Linwood Village

DRINKING alcohol on the

streets and parks around

Linwood Village will be banned

permanently.

A bylaw change was approved

by the city council on Thursday,

which will apply aroundthe-clock,

seven days a week

and cover the blocks between

Fitzgerald Ave, Armagh St,

England St and Hereford St,

including Doris Lusk Reserve.

The city council put in place

a temporary liquor ban late last

year in a bid to try and reduce

the high level of alcohol-fuelled

crime and disorder in the area.

Central Ward city councillor

Deon Swiggs said the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board strongly supported the

alcohol ban becoming permanent

as it wanted Linwood

Village to be a safe, welcoming

place to shop or visit.

“Before the temporary alcohol

ban came into force residents

and shopkeepers reported

feeling intimidated and unsafe

because of the anti-social

behaviour displayed by people

drinking in the street,” he said.

Cr Swiggs said the ban had

been effective in reducing a

Nicola Woodward

From fighting Aids in the UK

Family violence

agency Aviva, formerly

Christchurch Women’s

Refuge, will celebrate

45 years of service next

month. Chief executive

Nicola Woodward spoke

to Julia Evans about

her role in establishing a

needle exchange in the

United Kingdom during

the Aids crisis and how

that brought her to

New Zealand to set up

The Loft

How did you start your

career?

I moved to London when I

was 18 to start my general nurse

training. It was pretty exciting.

I quickly became involved in

politics, so that included the

anti-nuclear movement and

also health politics. I started

looking at how social injustice

and social inequality fuelled

the way the health system was

operating. As a nurse and a

young person, I was working

in the accident and emergency

department at the University

College Hospital. Lots of people

would come in having taken an

overdose, people would come in

homeless, people would come in

with the effects of problematic

alcohol use and generally what

we did was just patch people up

and send them out to the exact

same circumstances that lead

to their admission. This struck

me as quite crazy because it

meant the health care system was

really inefficient. But from my

perspective, more importantly,

it meant that people weren’t

being cared for in the way that I

believe we should be caring for

people. For as long as we failed

to address the social drivers

for people’s admission into

the accident and emergency

department, that door would

continue to rotate. In my early

20s, I proposed a new role, which

was a clinical nurse specialist

role in substance misuse at

University College Hospital in

central London. The purpose of

that role was to break that cycle

of admission so we actually

addressed a person’s whole needs

rather than just their medical

and physical needs. As that role

was being set up, HIV and AIDS

started becoming an issue in the

mid-1980s. In the accident and

emergency department, people

who were injecting drugs started

to come in asking for clean

needles and syringes because

they didn’t want to have to share

injecting equipment. Working in

partnership with the academic

department and the medical

leadership of the accident and

emergency department, we

started to operate London’s first

CHANGE-MAKER: Aviva chief executive Nicola Woodward has been passionate about

social justice and equality since she began working as a nurse in London in the 1980s.

needle exchange programme.

The the UK’s Department of

Health announced that they were

going to pilot 15 needle exchange

schemes up and down the

country, so we applied to become

one of those and were successful.

So we moved out of the needle

exchange programme to a shop

front premises between Oxford St

and Tottenham Court Rd. While

it was an exchange, it really

operated as a primary health

care service for people with drug

problems in London. While

people were not really connected

with health or social services and

lots of people were homeless, a lot

of people were experiencing quite

significant physical problems

due to their drug use. The stigma

and the shame meant that they

were unable to access help and

support. This is the beginning of

what became the harm reduction

movement and, for me, when

somebody came to the needle

exchange for the very first time

it was that they felt welcome and

respected enough to come back

again. Things were founded on

forming that relationship.

Do those same principals

apply to your role as chief

executive of Aviva?

Those very same principals

reflect why we have created The

Loft. We’ve brought multiple

organisations and services

together, where people live their

lives in Linwood and where

they shop at Eastgate Shopping

Centre. The most important

thing is that when they walk

through the door, they feel

welcome and respected. So we

know when someone walks

through the front door, they’re

likely to have multiple issues

and that in order to support

them to overcome those issues,

we have to attend to all of them,

not just one or two. It’s exactly

the same as the needle exchange

in the mid-80s – it’s no good

just giving people clean needles

and syringes, we have to attend

their whole needs. It’s not rocket

science, it’s very simple stuff. I’ve

been working now for 35 years or

so, we talk now about the need to

reform health and social services

in exactly the same way we talked

about it 35 years ago.

How have social agencies

changed over that time?

In many respects there are no

differences. People and organisations

continue to work in silos.

Practitioners and professionals,

like individuals and families,

have to navigate this really

complicated system so they also

have to work through multiple

referral pathways, are hampered

by waiting times, they also have

to navigate multiple doors and

multiple agency brands. The

Loft is about reforming all of

that and about placing children,

young people and their families

with practitioners together at the

centre of our system.

When you were little, was

helping people always the career

path you thought you would

take?

I never have identified as a

helper. What’s always really motivated

me is social injustice and

social inequalities. There’s a lot of

stigma and shame. I’ve worked

with people who have drug and

alcohol, mental health problems,

are affected by HIV and Aids

and are experiencing domestic

violence. The thing that connects

all of these issues is social

injustice and social inequality. So

that’s the thing that has always

motivated me. If we see ourselves

as helpers, then we remain at the

bottom of the cliff. If we see ourselves

as leaders of social change,

then we can help and build a

fairer and more just society. We

no longer have to be helpers at

the bottom of the cliff.

What are some of your

favourite moments throughout

your career?

Recently at New Zealand’s 30th

anniversary for needle exchange,

they spoke about The Loft. It was

a privilege to have a moment in

time 35 years ago to be part of the

harm minimisation movement

and its development. But it also

saddens me that 35 years later, we

still haven’t changed our system

to address and remove the stigma

and shame that keeps people

socially isolated.

Is it possible to leave your

kind of work at work?

No and I choose not to because

for me, personally, not only

professionally, social justice is

fundamentally important. I don’t

want to leave it at work, but it

is really important that we look

after our own mental health

and wellness. My partner had a

stroke five months ago and that

was an invitation to also care for

myself and my family a little bit

better. When you do this work,

there isn’t really separation about

what happens to us personally

and what gets us out of bed

every morning to come and do

the work. The other important

thing is I feel massively hopeful

and optimistic. Every time I

meet someone who may be using

violence, I see someone who has

the potential to become a good

partner, parent and citizen. I

don’t see, like unfortunately

most people do, a person who is a

perpetrator. I see a human being

with enormous people. At Aviva,

we believe New Zealand has the

potential to become free from

domestic violence.

to leading Aviva

Because if we don’t believe

that, how many deaths are we

prepared to tolerate? We’d say

that it’s inevitable and unavoidable

and I don’t think anyone

believes that domestic violence

is that.

Why did you leave the United

Kingdom to come work in

Christchurch?

I came to New Zealand in my

early 40s. I came first for a mental

health conference in 2005 and I

found myself very drawn to New

Zealand from my puku. It wasn’t

that I liked the country or that

I only thought it was beautiful,

I felt a very strong draw to be in

New Zealand. At the time I was

single, no dependants and so I

thought I would speak to people

about job possibilities. I came

here just really to open myself

up to an experience and some

new possibilities. I met a Kiwi

guy here in Christchurch, but I

started working in Auckland for

the Counties Manakau District

Health Board. I commuted

for four years or so from

Christchurch to Auckland. For

the rest of my life, I had been

working nationally in the United

Kingdom, spending three nights

a week in hotels in London or

Leeds. I had a real tolerance for

commuting and somehow, even

though I moved to the other

side of the world, I brought that

mindset with me. I Incorporated

commuting between Auckland

and Christchurch into my new

life. It’s a really important lesson

about the power of mind set. For

me, I moved physically across

the world, but in my own mind

I was able to tolerate that quality

of occupational and personal

life. I realised after four years

that that’s not what I wanted, I

wanted to achieve a much better

balance. Then the position of

chief executive at what was

Christchurch Women’s Refuge

came up. I was encouraged

by family and friends to apply

for it.

How does Christchurch

compare to a city like London?

I’m a middle-aged woman now,

I’m looking for different things.

Gardening

Editorial supplied by

www.gardener.kiwi

Liven your property with fresh plants

• By Rachel Vogan

ROAMING around garden

centres at this time of year is one

of my favourite things to do.

The only downside is that even

if I don’t need anything at all, I

generally leave with a boot-load

of goodies.

ASTERS ‘KING SIZE BLUE’

AND ‘KING SIZE WHITE’

These asters are just the business

for anyone wanting to grow

flowers to pick. They’re quick

to germinate and the flowers will

be ready to pick and enjoy in

about 12 weeks. The blooms on

these annuals are much larger

than others in its category, with

rows and rows of petals on each

bloom, which is what makes them

so appealing for bouquets and

posies. Cut blooms last for well

over a week, even longer if the

water is changed frequently. ‘King

Size Blue’ has rich kingfisher blue

blooms on stems that reach up to

1m in height. ‘King Size White’

has pure snow-white blooms

that I can see being a favourite

for bridal bouquets or those

who have a desire to paint their

garden white. Plant in garden

beds or flower borders, and, if

wind could be an issue, pop some

stakes in to support the stems.

Regular cutting of the flowers

will encourage a longer flowering

period.

DIDISCUS ‘LACE MIX’

These vintage summer flowers

add a graceful, ethereal element

to the cottage garden. The plants

are quick and easy to grow. Each

plant produces a flurry of sweetly

scented umbels in blue, pink,

white and shades in-between. If

your garden is on the large size,

I suggest investing in a couple

of packets. When picked, these

lace flowers with last in a vase for

up to 10 days. Best grown in the

garden.

LAVENDER JAVELIN

FORTE ‘DEEP PURPLE’

Our sporting friends from

Zealandia have released this

super-looking new lavender.

Being a Lavandula stoechas

variety, it will bloom throughout

summer and autumn, and bees

will just flock to it. It’s part of the

Javelin Forte series, bred to form

a very uniform compact plant

and with an unusually vigorous

growth habit – it will quickly

form a neat mound on the

garden and then cover itself

with a cloak of deep purple

flowers. What is unique is that

this one produces more flags or

ears per flower, which adds to

the plant’s overall appeal. Javelin

‘Deep Purple’ is suitable to plant

out in a sunny spot in the garden

or to create a statement in patio

pots.

BACOPA ‘MEGACOPA

WHITE’

Anyone who has grown these

ground-covering plants will

know they are a favourite for

hanging baskets and patio tubs.

‘MegaCopa White’ has the same

low-growing habit as other

varieties, but its huge pure white

flowers stay on the plant for a lot

longer. It doesn’t stop growing

when the temperatures rise either.

It is a wonderful plant in the

garden too, especially if you wish

to create a carpet of flowers under

the canopy of something else. You

will be able to get them through

the winter if you plant them in a

sheltered spot. Ask for this one

by name.

NEMESIA PENHOW

AROMA YELLOWS ‘PLUMS

AND CUSTARD’

How wonderful does this

new nemesia look. With its

contrasting yellow and purple

blooms, this sun-loving perennial

from the Penhow Aroma Yellows

series is more than likely to

hit the top-selling list on looks

alone. However, this plant has

a hidden gift – the flowers are

fragrant, with an aroma said to

be sweet and slightly spicy. Bred

in Wales at Penhow Nursery, it’s

an absolute showstopper and a

marvel of modern breeding. The

plants themselves grow nice and

compact, and look good en masse

or as extra colour to punctuate

your patio plantings. Get in quick

on this one, I have

a feeling it’s going to be popular!

STRAWFLOWERS

– COLOURWAVE

BRACTEANTHA

DREAMTIME SERIES

Holy moly, these bright

everlasting strawflowers look

impressive. If you are after bold

long-lasting summer and autumn

colour these Xerochrysum

bracteata are worth a look.

This new series features four

fantastic colours: ‘Jumbo Red’,

‘Jumbo Yellow’, ‘Jumbo White’

and ‘Jumbo Rose’ and forms nice

compact plants with a uniform

mounding habit. The hardy

annuals have been bred to flower

for months

on end and to endure life in

containers and tubs. They need at

least six hours of direct sunlight

a day and a fertile soil will ensure

they produce the most blooms.

Once established, they require

very little water

and are very heat tolerant.

CALIBRACHOA ALOHA

‘DOUBLE PURPLE’

Every season sees new petunias

and calibrachoas hit the market.

These miniature low-growing

flowering powerhouses are just

the ticket for adding a riot of

summer colour to patios, outdoor

living areas and the garden.

‘Double Purple’ is a new member

of the Aloha range, bred to have a

TIGHTLY PACKED: Didiscus Lace Mix.

BLOOMS: Aster ‘King Size Blue’ and Aster ‘King Size White’

are easy to grow and will be ready to pick in around 12 weeks.

Left – Bees will flock to Lavender Javelin Forte ‘Deep Purple.’

neat and tidy growth habit, while

producing masses of stunning

double blooms reminiscent of

a tiny petunia. So, if you are a

fan of the colour purple, this

calibrachoa could well makes

its way into your garden this

summer.

PATIO GERBERA ‘KAROO’

Flower lovers will gravitate to

this new patio gerbera. ‘Karoo’

boasts super large, two-toned

pink and white flowers, which

keep appearing throughout

summer and autumn. A trick

to keeping Gerbera jamesonii

looking the part over summer is

to plant them in a large tub and

use good quality potting mix, one

that holds onto water well. Full

sun is ideal; however, they will

cope with a few hours a day in

partial shade. They are also happy

indoors too, so why not dress up

the dinner table or windowsill

with these festive-looking

blooms?

CAREX ‘SPARK PLUG’

I’m excited to see a plant with

fancy foliage hitting the market.

What’s kind of cool is that it’s

a shade lover, so it can be used

to brighten up a darker part of

the garden or patio. Technically

it’s probably a grass, however it

resembles baby bamboo. With

a tight tufted habit and bright

creamy yellow and green foliage,

this Carex phyllocephala is as

neat as a pin and could be a

larger alternative to mondo grass.

Great for filling in gaps alongside

pathways or group planting with

ferns. If it’s not easily found out

the front with the other new

plants check the shaded area of

your garden centre.

LOVE ME & LEAVE ME

ROSES

This new collection of lowmaintenance,

disease-resistant

roses is perfect for anyone who

just wants to plant a plant and

walk away. Forget what you think

you know about roses, this series

has been bred for the time-poor

person, who just wants to enjoy

the flowers without having to do

any of the work. The compact

shrub-type roses easily fill a 1m

square space and range in colour

from pale creams and yellows to

reds and pinks. These roses are

tough; they don’t require spraying

or any care regime, perhaps a

trim with the hedge shears once a

year to shape.

Special Needs

Nurse Maude benefits from the time, talent and skills of more

than 300 volunteers who, collectively, donate thousands of hours of

their time to Nurse Maude each and every year.

They are an integral and hugely valued part of Nurse Maude,

providing respite care in the communuity; helping to run the

hospice shops and applying their skills to Nurse Maude’s biography

service, complementary therapy programme, family support,

fundraising and in the Nurse Maude hospice, hospital and gardens.

Individually and collectively they share their life experiences,

compassion and perspective to support some of the most vulnerable

in the community, contributing significantly to the lives of others.

With its extensive induction and ongoing training, Nurse Maude

Volunteers are well supported in their roles, each working in an

area where their skills and interest can be of most benefit to others.

Nurse Maude has been caring for the people of Canterbury for

more than 120 years, in the community and in the Nurse Maude

Hospital and Hospice and is an essential and trusted partner to district

health boards, GP’s, pharmacists and allied health and community

organisations.

It is its connection

with the community

and collaboration with

others that makes this

possible, along with

the capability and

compassion of those

who give so willingly

of their time to make a

real difference to those

who need it most.

Christs’ College Year 11 students prepare food boxes for distribution

at 0800 Hungry during a Community Service week which saw 130

students out and about in Christchurch making a difference.

Are you ready to

make a difference?

There is much to be said for the difference which volunteering

makes in our community – here in Christchurch volunteers of

Volunteering Canterbury’s member organisations impact on the

lives of 36,000 Cantabrians. It’s timely, though, as we recognise

the increased prevalence in our communities of those affected

with mental health issues and rising social isolation issues, to

reflect on how volunteering makes a difference to the volunteer

themselves. Volunteering provides an opportunity to make new

connections, gain skills, get involved with something different,

and grow self-esteem. As a pathway to paid employment,

volunteering can provide insights into those ‘what next’

career planning questions. As a pathway to reconnect with a

community which you may have become isolated from, it’s a

way to meet new people and make new friends … all the time

making a difference in your community. It’s a win/win.

Volunteering Canterbury is here to help YOU make a

difference – contact us via our website, www.volcan.org.nz,

VOLUNTEERS DAY

Join our truly brilliant

team of volunteers at

Enliven

The secret ingredient that makes

Enliven day programmes for seniors a fun

day out is our amazing volunteers. And

right now we are actively recruiting more

volunteers to join our teams in Linwood

and Riccarton.

“Our volunteers are vital to the work

we do,” says Penny Taylor, Presbyterian

Support Regional Manager. “They help

create an environment that is warm and

homely; somewhere that our members

look forward to coming to each week.”

Small teams of volunteers assist day

programme staff by serving meals and

refreshments and setting up activities.

They also support members as they

participate, and provide invaluable social

interaction through simply listening,

chatting, and sharing good times. The

time commitment isn’t huge—just three

hours per week or fortnight—but the

volunteers’ positive impact is enormous.

Volunteers make comments like “You

hear the joy and laughter of people who

might be living on their own and wouldn’t

experience that joy if it weren’t for your

help. There’s this immense satisfaction

from knowing you’ve made somebody’s

day better.”

No experience is necessary, just a

genuine interest in working with older

people. To find out more, call Roni

Jordan on 03 3138588 Ext 26 or visit

Falck’s

turn to get

familiar

with trophy

• By Gordon Findlater

REECE FALCK is hard pressed

to recognise more than a couple

of names he knows on the

Canterbury Open title he won at

the weekend.

The-16-year-old is believed

to have become the youngest

winner of one of Canterbury’s

oldest sporting trophies when he

defeated Remi Feneon 3-6, 6-0,

6-2 at Wilding Park.

The championship was first

played for in 1901 and contains

some of the biggest names in

New Zealand tennis over the

past century including the likes

of Onny Parun, Brian Fairlie,

Alistair Hunt, David Lewis and

Mark Nielson.

Although he may not be

familiar with Parun’s name, he

has dreams of realising the same

accomplishments one of the

country’s greats did during the

1970s, which was highlighted by

a French Open doubles title.

“I’d like to be world number

one and a grand slam champion,”

said Falck.

The Burwood Park player defeated

Englishman Harry Weeds

6-1, 6-0 in the opening round

of the Canterbury Open before

going onto account for Will

Schneideman 6-1, 6-1 and Liam

Adams 6-2, 6-3 to set up the final

with No 1 seed Feneon.

“Remi’s a good player. You’ve

got to make sure you capitalise

on any opportunity you get on

his serve,” said Falck.

Feneon’s daughter Jade suffered

the same fate as her father

by advancing the Canterbury

Open women’s final before being

defeated by defending champion

Tessa McCann who had a late

break of serve in the third set to

win 6-2, 2-6, 7-5.

Falck will now head into a busy

summer in fine form.

He is one of the favourites to

win the 16 and under national

championships in January. However,

he has hopes of winning

another national age group title

before then when he heads to

Auckland next week to compete

in the 18 and under national

championships where he is likely

to be the No 6 seed.

“I want to go there and win it

because I feel like I have a good

chance,” said Falck.

He will also compete at the

open grade New Zealand Tennis

Championships in Auckland

from December 11-18.

Since putting himself on the

radar as one of New Zealand’s

most promising juniors after

HISTORY: Sixteen-year-old Reece Falck is believed to be the youngest ever winner of the 117

year old Canterbury Open tennis title.

winning the national 14 and under

title in 2016 Falck was identified

by New Zealand Tennis’

targeted athlete programme and

has spent time developing his

game on European clay courts.

He has grown to 183cm and

feels he has improved significantly

on his court movement

over the past two years.

Following the series of national

championships Falck will look

to increase his junior ITF world

ranking at the three New Zealand

ITF events in Christchurch,

Wellington and Auckland in

January and February.

“I’d like to get that into the top

100 and see where I can go from

there,” said Falck.

He currently has a world ranking

of 819. However, he has two

years of junior eligibility remaining.

Following school at Shirley

Boys’ High School Falck hopes to

develop his game in the United

States college system.

HISTORY: Alistair Hunt and Onny Parun are two of the

many famous names on the Canterbury Open trophy.

Burnside West club of the year

BURNSIDE West Christchurch

University Cricket Club has

taken New Zealand Cricket’s

club of the Year award.

The past 12 months saw the

club experience success across all

levels including the premier side

winning the Christchurch metro

premier one-day title for the first

time in more than 20 years.

The award came as part of

the NZC Community Cricket

Awards. Burnside West will

formally receive the trophy at the

New Zealand Cricket Awards in

April.

Club chairman David Robertson

said the club were very proud

to receive the award which came

as a nice surprise.

Burnside West were

nominated by the Christchurch

Metro Cricket Association. The

nomination was then passed to

Canterbury Cricket who gave the

nomination their endorsement.

CMCA general manager Mike

Harvey says a number of factor

stood out when making their

decision.

“We even look at things like

the grounds. We have reports

from our captains and umpires

each week on grounds and

they’re probably at the top

excluding Hagley Oval and its

surrounds,” said Harvey.

“Right across the board they’re

doing a lot of good things and

they’ve got a really proactive and

well run committee which runs

things really well for them.”

Burnside have one current

Black Cap in the form of Tom

Latham, who Robertson says

does a great job of giving back

to the club by attending junior

prize-giving each year.

New name for the Eagles

THE ARANUI Eagles have

made the decision to transition

the club to better reflect the

community it serves and to also

reconnect with its history.

The Aranui Eagles formed

in 2007 after the former club

Eastern Suburbs closed down.

The current Eagles’ committee

has made the decision to reform

as the Eastern Eagles.

A resolution was passed last

month to dissolve the Aranui

Eagles Rugby League Club. A

new incorporated society has

been formed called the Eastern

Eagles Rugby League Club.

The decision to take the

former club’s name was

made due to the nature of the

Eagles, although being based in

Aranui, serves the wider eastern

suburbs.

The Aranui Eagles was

established out of its strong

relationship with Aranui High

School and with its closure and

establishment as Haeata Community

Campus the club no

longer holds the same affinity

with the school.

The Eastern Eagles will

Clapham to play against former team

• By Gordon Findlater

THE NAMES Aaron Clapham

and Canterbury United have

gone hand-in-hand over the past

decade.

However, it won’t be the case

when the former All White

clashes with his former team for

the first time on Saturday.

Clapham is arguably the

club’s greatest ever player.

However, after signing for Team

Wellington just before the

beginning of the national league

season the 31-year-old will now

do something he never thought

he would do when the two teams

clash in Wellington on Saturday.

“I never thought I would play

somewhere else so it’s going to be

very strange,” said Clapham.

“I have a lot of good friends in

that side and a lot of guys that

I know very, very well so the

dynamic of the game will be very

interesting. I’m trying to treat it

as a positive, it’s exciting and it’s

an interesting new challenge that

I never thought I would have.”

Following the match, Clapham

will fly to the UAE with his new

club ahead of their appearance

at the FIFA Club World Cup

where they could potentially play

against European powerhouse

Real Madrid.

Team Wellington will play

UAE club Al Ain FC in the first

round on of the knockout competition

on December 12.

“It was obviously a big draw.

It’s one of those great tournaments

of world football so the

opportunity to do that was very

appealing,” said Clapham.

The midfielder has scored a

record 61 goals for Canterbury.

He is also part of a rare group

to play 100 games for the club.

However, last year he withdrew

from the Canterbury squad after

being unable to reach an agreement

with them around training

commitments after the birth of

his first child.

“I love the game, that doesn’t

change. But, I think for anyone

having a child completely changes

your perspective and your

priorities on time and where you

spend it,” said Clapham.

There’s a lot of things that go

up in the air at the time and it

was challenging. We just weren’t

able to make it work in terms of

that commitment to training.”

After prioritising family last

season Clapham said he received

no communication from Canterbury

United in the build up to

the current campaign.

“That is definitely something

I would have loved to have done

but it just didn’t pan out that

way.”

The omission of Clapham in

the Canterbury squad created

TURNING

THE TIDES:

Clapham was

the Canterbury

United’s lone

goal scorer

during a

1-3 loss to

Wellington at

English Park in

March 2017.

HUNTER

an opportunity for Team Wellington

manager José Manuel

Figueira.

“He had seen that I wasn’t in

the Canterbury United squad

and gave me a quick call to see

where things were at and from

that point onwards it was quite

an interesting proposition,” said

Clapham.

Plying his trade for the

Wellington club would mean

clocking up many frequent flyer

points for Clapham – who works

in Christchurch as Cashmere

Technical’s director of football.

Each week he flies to Wellington

on Wednesday to train with the

squad on Wednesday and Thursday

afternoon before catching a

late flight home in the evening.

“I do a bit of a scramble from

training and quickly shower,

jump on the flight and I’m back

home . . . Cashmere Technical

have been very supportive of

making that happen which is

great,” said Clapham.

Due to signing with Team

Wellington just a couple of weeks

before the season Clapham

missed a large chunk of the

pre-season. He had his first start

for the club during their 2-1 win

over Eastern Suburbs on Sunday.

Having played with a lot

of Canterbury United’s current

squad for five to 10 years

Clapham is expecting some banter

leading into Saturday’s match.

There’s been a few texts going

back and forward but it’s all

been very friendly . . . it will be

interesting to see if that ramps

up closer to the weekend,” said

Clapham.

“I’ll hang out with everyone

post game and have a bit of a

chat and catch up and hopefully

have a yarn about our victory.”

Clapham wouldn’t rule out a

return to Canterbury United in

the future, admitting the club

will always be close to his heart.

“I’ve spent the best part of a

decade at that club and been

very loyal in that time. I turned

down a lot of other teams to stay

at Canterbury United over the

years. I love the club and want

them to do well, but maybe not

this weekend so much.”

Time for nostalgia on the basketball court

WHEN THE Tall Blacks play

Jordan tonight in their first game

in Christchurch for 14 years it

will come with a huge amount of

nostalgia for me.

We all have a favourite

sporting memory growing up

and for me it was the 2002 Tall

Blacks who finished fourth at

that year’s world championships.

They came into the championships

in the United States with a

reputation as rank outsiders after

just one previous appearance at

the global tournament, a 21st

placing in 1986.

Their against-all-odds

performances led to them

winning the Supreme Award

at that year’s Halberg Awards.

For me the Tall Blacks effort

at the world champs is the

greatest performance from a

New Zealand team at a world

championship I’ve seen.

The Tall Blacks had one NBA

player in their squad in the form

of Sean Marks. However, the

one-time NBA champion suffered

an eye injury in the third

and final group game against

Argentina, which ruled him out

for the remainder of the tournament.

Wins over Russia and Venezuela

and a loss to Argentina in

group play saw the Tall Blacks

advance to the second round

where they suffered defeats

to Germany and the United

States. This set up a must-win

match against China where Phil

Jones came to the party with a

33-point performance including

shooting six from eight from

three-point land to seal a 94-88

win.

All those years of going to

watch the Canterbury Rams lead

Jones’ Nelson Giants at Cowles

Stadium before an inevitable late

flurry from the shooting-guard

to win the game, were finally

worth the heartbreak.

The defining moment for me

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

though was a gutsy low-scoring

65-63 quarter-final win over

Puerto Rico which came into the

match as heavy favourites after

suffering just one loss coming

into the game.

I dodged school that day so I

could watch the match only to

find out our teacher decided to

let the class watch the match –

that’s the way teaching should

be.

Two days later the

unthinkable almost became

reality. In their semi-final with

eventual winners Yugoslavia the

Tall Blacks lead 48-39 at halftime

before a poor third-quarter

which would ultimately deny

them a place in the gold medal

match.

Yes, the ride didn’t have the

fairy tale ending of the Tall

Blacks coming home with a

medal but to me they were

heroes.

How highly they over-achieved

in the world’s eyes is best

summed up by the fact Pero

Cameron was named in the

all-tournament team. When you

consider the four other players in

that team you get a truer sense

of how big the accomplishment

was.

Cameron was the only non

NBA player selected in the team

alongside Dirk Nowitzki – a

NBA champion, 13-time NBA

All-Star, 2011 NBA MVP and

finals MVP award winner. Yao

Ming – a former No 1 NBA

draft pick and eight times NBA

All-Star. Manu Ginobili – a

four-time NBA champion and

two-time NBA All-Star; and Peja

Stojakovic, a NBA champion and

two-time NBA All-Star.

Cameron was someone who

unlike most sporting heroes

these days felt extremely accessible.

I even remember Cameron

and his, at the time, Auckland

Stars team running a week-long

promotion at Eastgate Mall in

the 1990s where punters could

shoot three successful shots in a

row to qualify for the final of a

shootout competition being held

at the weekend.

Around 100 people from a

wide age range participated in

the final event which was won

by an eight-year-old who was

duly thrown into the air by

Cameron after making the

winning shot.

At the time the boy was too

small to fit the Michael Jordan

Chicago Bulls jersey he won.

However, I can confirm it fits

him perfectly well today (it was

me).

Sure these names of the past

I have fond memories of won’t

be on the court at Horncastle

Arena tonight, but with seven

wins from eight games to start

their qualifying campaign for

next year’s World Cup and an

increasing number of Kiwis on a

pathway to playing professionally

there’s good reason think the

Tall Blacks can produce more

nostalgic moments for future

generations.

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”
