Dalziel to run again

LIANNE DALZIEL will

run again for her third term

as mayor, after weighing up

husband Rob Davidson’s

health, and the civic tasks she

needs to complete.

Mr Davidson was diagnosed

with prostrate cancer

midway through this year,

which put on hold her earlier

plan to make an announcement

about then on whether

she would stand again.

“Rob has responded well to

treatment, and there is every

reason to be confident we

have many years ahead,” she

said yesterday.

Ms Dalziel also said it

was necessary to make an

announcement now, as the

drums begin to beat as to who

would stand for mayor if she

didn’t.

HUSBAND’S HEALTH FACTOR IN DECISION

Bottling

company

can take

water

from

deep bore

• By Sophie Cornish

FURTHER LEGAL action is

being considered after a decision

yesterday to allow an overseas

bottling company to take

Christchurch water from another

bore.

An Environment Canterbury

appointed independent

commissioner granted consent to

Cloud Ocean Water Ltd, allowing

it to take water

from a deeper bore

for its bottling

operation in

Belfast.

Commissioner

Richard Fowler

QC decided the

application would

not be publicly

notified.

Aotearoa Water Action

Peter

Richardson

spokesman Peter Richardson said

he is “appalled” by the decision.

“We can’t understand how he

has made the decision and are

very concerned he wouldn’t allow

us to present any information to

him before making the decision,”

he said. Mr Richardson said the

group will be looking carefully at

the decision to see whether there

are grounds for a judicial review.

Mr Fowler said expert evidence

had found the effects on the

environment “would be no more

than minor.” •Turn to page 5

Few leads on ‘random’ dairy stabbing

• By Sophie Cornish

THE BRUTAL stabbing of a

45-year-old outside a suburban

dairy may have been a random

attack.

The man is now at home recovering

after the early evening

attack outside Keyes Rd Dairy

in North New Brighton nine

days ago.

Detective Sergeant Craig

Johnson said yesterday no suspects

had been identified.

The victim had told police he

thought the attacker’s face was

familiar but he did not know

who he was.

The victim was stabbed in the

back after he had left the dairy.

It was more than one wound,

but Detective Sergeant Johnson

would not say how many.

Lime rides top 200,000

• By Julia Evans

THE 400 Lime scooters

scattered around the city’s

streets have been ridden more

than 200,000 times.

And due to the demand in

Christchurch the number of

Lime scooters could increase to

1500.

The usage figures were

released to the city council’s

infrastructure, transport

and environment committee

yesterday.

Sixty thousand users have

ridden the e-scooters more

than 200,000 times in the two

months since they launched on

October 15.

They have been ridden

more than 500,000 times in

Christchurch and Auckland

combined.

But there have been no serious

injuries recorded. There have

been 141 ACC claims in the

city since the scooters were

launched. Those have included

soft tissue injuries, lacerations,

punctures, fractures and

dislocation.

The median distance travelled

is 1km, while the median trip

time is 9min.

Some Lime scooters were

ridden eight or nine times a day.

However, daily usage is

weather dependant as the

scooters are ridden twice as

much on warm days.

A city council reference group

said there needs to be clearer

messaging around who has the

right of way on footpaths.

There needed to be better

understanding around risk,

injury and data reporting, it

said.

It also found that it was

“highly unusual” that e-scooters

weren’t allowed in cycle lanes.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency said e-scooters can only

be used on the footpath or the

road.

But cannot be used in

designated cycle lanes. City

council staff are working on

policy allowing scooters to be

used in the city’s cycleways.

Lime paid the city council

$136 for a three-month mobile

trading permit for the scooters,

which would be reviewed once it

expired.

The scooters can be hired

using an app. It costs $1 to

unlock, then 30c a minute to

ride.

Riders must be over 18, and

helmets are recommended but

not required.

The scooters can reach speeds

up to 30km/h and can be used

on roads and footpaths.

Referee breaks silence on charity

It was the

worst moment

you could

ever imagine

THE REFEREE of the fatal

Christchurch charity fight night

has broken his silence, saying

victim Kain Parsons held his

own in the ring until the fateful

blow which cost his life.

Mr Parsons, 37, died four days

after being critically injured

in the ring during the Fight

for Christchurch event on

November 3.

The project manager was

fighting former Canterbury and

Tasman Makos rugby halfback

Steve Alfeld in the fight night,

which was raising money for a

variety of Christchurch charities.

In an exclusive interview with

the Herald on Sunday, Kevin

Pyne, one of New Zealand’s top

professional boxing referees, has

spoken of the moments leading

up to the final knockout blow,

and how seeing Parsons carried

out of the ring on a stretcher

was the worst moment of his

officiating career.

“We were all deeply gutted by

this incident,” Pyne said.

“It’s not like we just walked

away and brushed it off, and

thought ‘oh, it’s another day at

the office’. It was nothing like

that, it was your worst moment

you could ever imagine in the

ring.

“I’ve never had an opponent

carried out on a stretcher in my

career, and we’ve had over 5000

registered corporate fighters

through the New Zealand

Professional Boxing Association.

This is the first time we’ve had

any incident of this nature.

“He’s got three little kiddies

and a wife. We think we’re doing

it hard, but imagine how they

feel.”

But Pyne refuses to attribute

blame.

“We had done everything to

the letter of the law of boxing,

but we were all suffering over

that incident for sure,” Pyne told

the Herald on Sunday.

The matching was fair, I think

Kain Parsons had an extensive

time in the gym, like 18 months,

and that was mis-reported at one

stage.

“That’s a great period of time

to have a corporate fight. The

actual opponent hadn’t had

anywhere near that.”

The progression of the fight

also offered no warning signs, he

said.

Pyne did issue two

standing eight counts in the

opening round against Mr

Parsons – including one from

a punch which knocked him

off balance. The other was to

check after a willing exchange;

but he said in both cases Mr

Parsons did not appear hurt or

struggling.

boxing death

“It didn’t hurt him, he got

straight back up,” he said of the

count after Mr Parsons lost balance.

“I checked him to walk forward

and his legs were great and he was

willing and he said: ‘I just fell, I’m

okay’.

“It was a pretty fiery first round

but he went back to his corner

after the eight counts and he was

willing and fine.

“He came out fired up. When I

spoke to the judges they said they

had him almost winning the second

round until that one punch.”

Pyne stressed the two standing

eight counts he gave Mr Parsons

are not the same thing as a 10

count in professional boxing.

“People think because you’ve

got a standing eight count on a

boxer there’s something wrong

with them,” he said.

“We can use that at any

given moment to go in and

check just how people are in a

heated moment. You don’t have

to get knocked over and hit the

ground.”

What Pyne didn’t know – and

no one at the Horncastle Arena

that night had been informed, he

said – was that Mr Parsons had

taken weeks off training prior to

the bout.

“That was all news to us after

the fight, that he’d had a period

of time out of the gym with headaches,”

he said.

“When the doctor examined

on the Friday [on the eve of the

fight], there was no mention of

anything like that.”

Pyne has not been scared off.

On Saturday he will be one

of the three judges for Joseph

Parker’s heavyweight bout at

Horncastle Arena, in addition to

refereeing the undercard.

And Pyne – the New Zealand

Professional Boxing Association’s

second vice president – said he

still backs the concept of corporate

boxing in spite of calls for it

to be banned after Mr Parsons’

death; the third boxing fatality in

New Zealand since 2016.

“Corporate boxing is a great

thing for people if it’s conducted

properly, under the Boxing and

Wrestling Act,” he said.

“We are looking at head guards

from here on in, that’s mandatory

until we have something further to

look at. And the next year we’re going

to review the whole situation.”

A police investigation is

ongoing into the November 3

Fight for Christchurch event. Mr

Parsons’ death has been referred

to the coroner.

More legal action considered

over plan to take water

•From page 1

ECan general counsel

Catherine Schache said the

consent didn’t change the

volume, rate or timing of the

take Cloud Ocean already holds

consent for.

“We know this will be a

frustrating decision for members

of the public who wanted to have

their say on this application.

The Resource Management Act

allows for consents to be publicly

notified so people can present

their views but only in certain

circumstances, and this wasn’t

the case with this application,”

she said.

Mr Fowler said there were

no special circumstances that

would trigger public or limited

notification.

A High Court decision

this week determined old

industrial resource consents

for a wool scour and freezing

works in Belfast do not allow

for large-scale water bottling

operations by Cloud Ocean

Water and Rapaki Natural

Resources.

The Chinese-owned bottling

company has permission to

extract water to sell it overseas.

MORE WATER: A decision was made yesterday to grant

consent to Chinese company Cloud Ocean Ltd to take

Christchurch water.

The city council is opposed to

the consent application.

City councillor Vicki Buck

said it was “revolting” and she

was shocked by the decision.

A report will be discussed

today by councillors

recommending ECan change its

approach to how it deals with

water consent.

Use public transport or face big

New data shows

Canterbury’s transport

system will fail if our

reliance on private

vehicles continues.

Julia Evans reports

THE NUMBER of people

using public transport needs to

quadruple over the next 30 years,

a new report says.

The Greater Christchurch

Public Transport: A Case

for Investment report will

be presented to the greater

Christchurch

partnership

committee

tomorrow.

The committee is

made up of the city

council, as well as

the Waimakariri

Glen

Koorey

and Selwyn

district councils,

Environment

Canterbury and Ngai Tahu.

It looks at the future of public

transport and lays out a case

for investment in service and

infrastructure until 2048.

The aim is to double the share

of people using public transport

from 2.5 per cent to five per cent

by the late 2020s. That would

then double again by 2048.

THE FUTURE: In the next 30 years, four times as many people will need to be catching

the bus.

There are currently 13.8

million passenger trips on buses

a year. Before the February 22,

2011, earthquake, there were 17

million.

“Unless steps are taken to

invest in alternative modes

and reduce reliance on private

vehicles, increased travel demand

during the next 10 years and

beyond will exacerbate peak

time congestion and generate

significant impacts on the

environment, health and safety,”

the report said.

ViaStrada senior traffic

engineer and transport planner

Glen Koorey said transport in

the city cannot stay the same so

investing now is important, and

the report was critical to that.

“We need to be looking at

alternative ways, whether that

be the bus or a bike or even

car-sharing,” he said. Dr Koorey

said the quakes “dramatically”

changed the landscape of the city

•Canterbury is the

fastest growing region

in the country outside of

Auckland.

The population is expected

to hit 640,000 by 2048.

There will be 60,000 new

employees working in the

central city in that time.

•83 per cent of people use

cars to get to work.

•Morning peak speeds

could drop to 36km/h in 10

years.

•Current investment

in public transport in

Christchurch is less than

Wellington and Auckland.

•21,900 commuters travel

into Christchurch for work

each day – 11,200 from

Selwyn and 10,700 from

Waimakariri.

•Before the earthquakes,

there were 17 million bus

trips per annum – now

there are 13.8 million.

and provided an opportunity to

put infrastructure in place.

“With people moving out to

new subdivisions out of town, it’s

not just in the city.”

A financial breakdown in the

report said the “whole-life-cost”

of the programme would be more

than $1.3 billion.

traffic congestion issues – report

That would include “significant

investment” in rapid transport

corridor improvements, which

could include light rail, new

bus lanes, as well as ongoing

operating costs.

But the report said if public

transport reached five per cent

mode share, the economic

benefits would be up to $1.4

billion.

“In addition, there would be

substantial health benefits from

added walking to access public

transport stops and stations and

emissions reduction benefits,”

said the report.

Dr Koorey said introducing

more rapid transport corridors,

like bus priority lanes, were

“vital” in changing travel habits.

They really work well with

really reliable services. It’s

important to have bus priority

networks in place.”

He said they would work to

change people’s perceptions over

taking public transport, which

was that it was too slow and too

unreliable.

“People hate having to transfer

buses. If they can avoid the extra

hassle, they will.”

Increasing frequency,

improved facilities, park and

ride interchanges and public

transport priority measures have

been suggested in the report.

Currently 83 per cent

of residents drive to work,

which the report said has

had “increasing impacts” on

congestion and delays around

the city.

“Modelling indicates that

average speeds at the am peak

period could fall substantially by

2048 . . . average travel speeds in

the morning peak could reduce

by over 6km/h in the next 30

years from 42km/h to 36km/h.”

It said the reliance on private

vehicles was “simply not

sustainable” and would result in

a “failing transport system.”

The report said rapid transit

services along high demand

corridors, particularly between

the central city, Hornby,

Sydenham, Addington,

Riccarton, Ilam, Sockburn and

Wigram, would help reduce the

reliance on cars.

“Providing rapid transport

along this corridor will provide

an attractive alternative to

private vehicle travel.”

Cost, comfort and travel

time are the main reasons

Cantabrians are put off public

transport, the report said.

Canterbury is the fastest

growing region outside of

Auckland. It is projected to

grow faster than Wellington,

Tauranga, Hamilton and

Queenstown combined with

estimates putting the population

at 640,000 in 30 years.

The largest concentration will

be within 10km of the central

city with an additional 60,000

employees in the centre.

However, investment in public

transport in the city is lower than

in Auckland and Wellington.

“Now is the opportunity for

investment in public transport

whilst the city is rebuilding, to

shape the rebuild and before

opportunities to use space for

public transport is taken up with

other development,” the report

said.

Over the next three to five

years, it said the “headwind” will

turn into a “tailwind” for public

transport patronage, which

had been set back following the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

It comes as ECan is meeting

to finalise its regional public

transport plan today.

Changes include more bus

routes, increased frequency,

rapid transit corridors, an

emission-free fleet by 2030 and a

central city shuttle trial.

‘Cheaper’ to drive than bus

• By Julia Evans

CAROLINE SILVA takes the bus

to work every day.

She catches the Yellow

line from Linwood to

the bus exchange, then

the No 95 to work at

Countdown in Papanui,

and home again when

her shift finishes.

“I don’t have a car,

but I have a licence,” the

38-year-old said.

She said most of the

time it is “easier” to

catch the bus around the city

and not have to worry about

parking.

“I’m used to catching the bus

now. I’ve been doing it for a year

and a half now,” Ms Silva said.

Caroline Silva

However, she believes she is in

the minority and most people in

the city prefer to drive.

“It’s cheaper to just buy a car

and drive so I think

that’s why not as many

people catch the bus.”

Improvements to the

frequency of public

transport, as well as

adding more bus lanes

to the roading network,

might help increase the

amount of people that

do, she said.

“I once had to wait

between buses for about 30min,

that was not so good . . . I know

some of the roads still need to be

repaired after the earthquake,

so that doesn’t bother me too

much.” •Bus lane tickets, page 9

Fire rages, homes at risk

Nearly 200 bus lane infringements

• By Julia Evans

ALMOST 200 motorists have

been ticketed for blocking the

new Riccarton Rd bus lanes.

It comes as the new lanes have

been ignored by motorists just

over a month after they opened.

“Parking compliance

are conducting bus lane

enforcement on Riccarton Rd

to ensure that buses can travel

unhindered

and arrive

at their

destinations

on time,” city

council head

of transport

Steffan

Thomas said.

Steffan

Thomas

The bus

lanes between

Deans Ave

and Harakeke

St are part of the recently

completed $2.57 million

Riccarton Rd renewal and

resurfacing works. They opened

on November 1.

Of the 190 tickets handed

out since November 23, 74

motorists have been ticketed

for driving in the bus lane,

while 116 had received fines for

parking.

The fine for driving in a bus

CAUGHT: One hundred and ninety motorists have been caught parked or driving in

Riccarton Rd bus lanes by the city council.

lane for more than 50m $150,

while parking in the bus lane

was $60.

Mr Thomas said it would

encourage compliance.

He said they were being

monitored on a daily basis and it

would be “ongoing.”

Red Bus chief executive

Paul McNoe said the lanes

are “unusable” when cars are

parked.

“Because of the number of

cars parked are substantial . . .

it’s unavailable for its intended

use,” Mr McNoe said.

“Filming or recording vehicles

obstructing or using the bus

lane assists enforcement officers

to prove a vehicle has offended.

Issuing an infringement

discourages future offending,”

Mr Thomas said.

“Education is an important

component to keeping the bus

lanes clear and this is currently

being conducted as part of our

one month phase to educate

motorists about the bus lane

rules.”

Vehicles parked in bus lanes

during operational times

impacted the overall efficiency

of the bus network, Mr Thomas

said.

More than $160,050 has been

collected from people illegally

using bus lanes around the city

in the last year.

Last November, the city

council relaunched its campaign

to get motorists out of bus lanes.

“One thousand seven

hundred and forty two

infringements have been issued

for unauthorised use of a special

vehicle lane since enforcement

resumed,” Mr Thomas said.

February start

for Riccarton Rd

upgrade work

WORK ON the next stage of

Riccarton Rd will begin in

February and finished in two years.

The next stage of upgrading

the road, between Harakeke and

Matipo Sts involves replacing and

upgrading damaged underground

pipes and rebuilding the road to accommodate

bus priority measures.

As part of the work a treeplanted

median strip will be added

between Clarence and Matipo Sts.

While the scheme was consulted

on a number of years ago, the

design has developed following

input from the community and key

stakeholders including the emergency

services.

The car parking spaces behind

the businesses on the northern side

of Riccarton Rd, between Rimu St

and Straven Rd, will also be upgraded

in January and a two-hour

time limit introduced.

It is expected to be completed by

December 2020.

Transport planning and delivery

manager Lynette Ellis said some

disruption will be unavoidable, but

the work needs to be done.

“Some of the pipes that run

underneath Riccarton Rd are

almost a century old so they need

to be replaced,’’ Ms Ellis said.

Plenty of value in a power nap

JUST UNDER a month in to

my stay-at-home-dad career

and I have a new appreciation

for two things – parenting fulltime

is way more tiring than

I thought and I need more

hands.

Mostly for Vittoria’s Saturday

swimming lessons.

She’s amazingly confident

in the water and it’s awesome

watching her confidence

grow. Before I went full-time

parent it was our main daddy/

daughter time, so it’s special

for us.

However, as she’s got

more mobile, showering

and changing has become a

challenge. Hence the need for

more hands.

If my wife Laura is free she’ll

tag along to watch the wee

mermaid in action. Having her

there is a big help as she can

dress Vittoria while I shower

and change.

On Saturday morning, I

decided to let Laura sleep in

after a busy work week. But

boy, did I miss her at change

time.

Wee one was already

yawning mid-way through

so by the time we got to the

showers she was grumpy-as

and letting everyone know it.

Poor lass was just ready for

her bottle and a nap and here’s

me washing her, drying her,

dressing her and then trying to

do the same for myself? What

a monster.

To save extending the

meltdown, and bring her back

to her smiling self, I just went

home in my wet togs, wrapped

in a towel.

It might not seem like an

embarrassing situation, but

try it out while you’re halfnaked,

soaking wet and in

front of much fitter looking

strangers.

As for my fatigue levels, I

was never one for a sneaky

workplace nap and after work

I used to stay up to make the

most of my home time.

Now I’ll often nap during the

day and still be yawning for

bed by 8pm.

I used to wonder why Laura

complained about being tired.

I mean, looking after a baby on

the cusp of toddlerhood can’t

VITTORIA

& Matt

be more draining than writing

news. Right?

After Saturday’s swimming

lesson we went to one of

Vittoria’s friend’s first birthday

party. By the end of that, I

actually took a power nap on

the floor of the lounge.

CASINO’S

TEAM: Lianne Dalziel and city councillors. She will stand again for mayor in the local body

elections next year. People’s Choice leader and Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner (front row, third

from left) won’t now contest the mayoralty.

Achieving milestones and

resolving unfinished business

IT WAS June when my husband,

Rob, and I went to the Cancer

Society Ball.

We heard the message loud and

clear – each day 60 New Zealanders

will hear the words “I’m sorry,

you have cancer.”

For us it was only a few weeks

later. Rob came back from overseas

feeling unwell. He went to

the doctor and began a barrage

of tests. Finally a bone scan and a

biopsy confirmed it was prostate

cancer. It came as a big shock.

I haven’t talked publicly before

now, because the question from

the media since July is whether

I’m going to run for mayor again.

As I’m sure you will understand,

this has required additional

thought.

I personally don’t think it’s

necessary to make the decision

so far out from the election, given

that so much can occur between

now and then.

• By Julia Evans

LIANNE DALZIEL’S decision

to run for a third term means

left-aligned People’s Choice

will wait another three years

before putting up a mayoral

candidate.

Leader and Deputy Mayor

Andrew Turner said he would

only stand for the position in the

October 12 local body elections in

the event that Ms Dalziel bowed

out.

“Lianne is very aware of my

position – that I would run only if

she did not,” he said.

It is the reason Ms Dalziel has

announced her intentions 10

months early, in spite of saying in

June she would make a decision

However, with some potential

candidates indicating that they

would be willing to serve if I was

not going to put my name forward,

I’ve decided to make that

call now.

Rob has responded well to

treatment, and there is every

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

after the Long Term Plan had been

finalised.

“I personally don’t think it’s necessary

to make the decision so far

out from the election, given that so

much can occur between now and

then,” she said.

“However, with some potential

candidates indicating that they

would be willing to serve if I

was not going to put my name

forward, I’ve decided to make that

call now.”

Ms Dalziel won her first mayoral

race in 2013 to take over from Bob

Parker, who did not stand.

She had a majority of almost

50,000 over closest rival, businessman

Paul Lonsdale.

At the time, she said it would be

her only term.

reason to be confident we have

many years ahead of us.

I’ve also been encouraged to

run again by many community

and business leaders, as well as

countless residents who have offered

their support as we’ve come

into contact on the street, in the

supermarket and at events.

We’ve come a long way as a city

in the past five years, and there

are a few more milestones to be

achieved before the election.

However, there is unfinished

business, which I believe I am

well-placed to help resolve, and

therefore I intend to stand next

year.

Turner: ‘I would run only if she did not’

In 2016, Ms Dalziel announced

her intention to run five months

before the election. That year she

received 75,524 votes, 62,407 more

than closest rival, activist John

Minto.

Previously Ms Dalziel was a

Labour cabinet minister and MP

for Christchurch East.

Cr Turner said he believed

he would be an “effective and

successful” mayor. But he

would be happy to remain a

councillor.

“If that is not the opportunity

which is present for me in 2019, I

will also be very happy to continue

to achieve the best for my Banks

Peninsula Ward and for the city

by continuing in my current role,”

he said.

Call to extend park and ride

• By Julia Evans

MORE PARKING buildings

should be included in the

Christchurch Hospital park and

ride service.

Central City Business Association

chairman Brendan

Chase said having the service

extended to include a number of

parking buildings would create

a level playing field between the

city council and private sector.

“It would

give those

people parking

a little bit

more choice.

But it might

help improve

occupancy at

some of the

Brendan

Chase

other parking

buildings,” he

said.

Mr Chase said the shuttle

could run on a loop around several

buildings along Lichfield,

Tuam and Hereford Sts.

However, Canterbury District

Health Board commercial portfolio

manager Rachel Cadle said

extending the service would cost

too much and make the route

take too long.

“We have looked carefully at

all possible aspects of the hospital

shuttle service. Extending

the service to other buildings

would require more shuttle

buses, which are paid for by the

CDHB, and would make journey

times longer.”

The park and ride service

moved from its flooded and

pothole-ridden site on Deans

Ave to the city council’s

805-space Lichfield St parking

building in July.

It came after an 18-month

campaign by The Star.

Said Ms Cadle: “The new

location is popular as it’s secure,

accessible, well-lit, smoothsurfaced

and under cover.”

Mr Chase said extending the

service would also reduce the

strain on the city council’s parking

building.

The Lichfield St parking

building is often at capacity and

a lot of that has to do with the

park and ride,” he said.

Ms Cadle said while the park

is often “quite full,” spaces do

There are usually more free

spaces on the upper floors and

on the top deck (level eight) and

there are lifts back down to the

The new park and ride will

run until the Ministry of Health

finishes building a permanent

car parking building in 2020.

More than 200 car parks

have been set aside at the Metro

Fire rages, homes at risk

‘Drown him’

case outcome

tomorrow

• By Sophie Cornish

THE OUTCOME of the longrunning

“drown him” court case

will be known tomorrow.

Two teenagers charged over the

alleged attack after the Rolleston

fireworks display in November last

year appeared in the Youth Court

last week.

The now 17-year-olds were

defending a charge each of causing

injury with intent to injure. They

were 15 and 16 at the time. The case

grabbed headlines after the 15-yearold

victim (now 16) was allegedly attacked

on Tennyson St after leaving

the fireworks display.

He was pushed into a water race

and had his head allegedly held under

water, while others in the group

watching yelled: “Drown him,

drown him”.

Judge Stephen O’Driscoll heard

evidence over two days last week.

He reserved his decision which will

be released tomorrow. The Star was

prohibited from covering the case

last week.

The teenagers who appeared in

court were originally charged with

aggravated robbery, but had their

charges amended in August.

The victim was left with a gash on

his face that required stitches and a

night in hospital.

Cemetery name change likely

• By Anan Zaki

A CEMETERY which

remembers the victims of the

February 22, 2011, earthquake

could get a name change.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board voted

on Monday to ask the city council

to consider adding the word

‘memorial’ to Avonhead Park

Cemetery’s name.

Friends of Avonhead Cemetery

chairman Clive Paris was pleased

with the community board decision.

The cemetery is home to an

interment site opened on the first

anniversary of the disaster.

Fifty-eight victims are memorialsed

at Avonhead Park Cemetery,

the city council said.

The group has been campaigning

to change its name to reflect

the interment site’s significance

for 18 months.

“It’s a step forward, sanity

prevails and it’s also wishes of

families of the deceased who are

buried there from the [February

22], 2011, earthquake,” he said.

“We’ve got a $300,000 [interment]

there, and referred to as a

memorial by former Mayor Bob

Parker,” Mr Paris said.

Friends of Avonhead Cemetery

will continue to urge city councillors

to change the name.

“I think they [city councillors]

CHANGE: Friends of Avonhead Cemetery chairman Clive Paris

is campaigning to add the word ‘memorial’ to the cemetery’s

name.

should listen to the people rather

than some ideology steeped in

history that the name should be

retained.”

Community board chairman

Sam MacDonald said the board

was against the city council

staff’s recommendations, which

was to keep the existing name.

“Community boards are there

to represent the community. This

council is commonly criticised for

not being prepared to listen to the

community,” Mr MacDonald said.

He expects the city council to

consider the board recommendation

in February next year.

If that recommendation is

accepted, the city council will

begin open a public consultation

to change the name.

Board member Aaron Campbell

said Friends of Avonhead

Cemetery disagreed with the

group on the “sensitive” subject

of changing the name.

Mr Campbell was the only

board member to vote against

changing the name.

“Particularly around the Avonhead

Park cemetery, any changes

that have been made have been

extremely contentious,” he said.

Mr Campbell also questioned

why Friends of Avonhead

Cemetery didn’t submit

about the name change in the

Cemeteries Bylaw review earlier

this year.

But Mr Paris said his group did

not need to submit in the bylaw

review because the community

board has been aware of this issue

for 18 months.

Hampshire St: Transformed into

Hampshire St, Aranui,

has had a reputation

over the years as a

place you dare to tread.

But it is undergoing a

transformation. Julia

Evans reports

IN THE PAST it has been

labelled the most feared street in

the city.

Sirens, stabbings, sexual assaults,

fires, shootings, gangs,

murders, high unemployment

rates and low incomes have been

synonymous with Hampshire St

for the better part of its history.

A stark contrast to its namesake,

the area of Hampshire in

the United Kingdom, which has a

Christchurch city and Avon River

of its own.

Hampshire calls forth images

of a rolling English countryside

rather than the street police in

the 1990s would often refer to as

The Reservation.”

Erina Staples has lived on and

around Hampshire St for 27 years

and said the area used to be

“really rough.”

She said there were fights often

between the Mongrel Mob and

Black Power gangs when the pub,

BANABA BANABA has lived

on Hampshire St for at least 20

years.

It could be 30.

“I’ve forgotten, I’ve had other

things on my mind.”

He’s spent the last eight years

in his modern brick unit after

moving from down the other

end of the street.

Mr Banaba had to move

after the February 22, 2011,

earthquake destroyed the

second storey of his home.

“You couldn’t use the

bathroom or go upstairs. I

like it here better anyway,” he

said.

There aren’t as many people

doing wheelspins outside the

house here, its quieter.”

Originally from the Cook

Islands, Mr Banaba moved to

Auckland and lived in Porirua

with his brother.

He then moved down to

“It was terrible when the pub

was open . . . there were fights

outside and the kids would hang

outside and see it all,” she said.

Power haven’t been the only gangs

to be prominent in the area.

In the 70s, there was the Flagon

Now he mows the front lawns

“I like helping,” Mr Banaba

said.

He also liked playing darts

at the Eastern Eagles Rugby

League Club clubrooms.

“I stopped playing when I

reached the top. I said: ‘I’ve had

enough now’.”

Mr Banaba said Wainoni

Park was a great spot on

Hampshire St.

“When my grandkids come

over, I say go over to the park

and play. I can walk over with

them and watch,” he said.

However, Mr Banaba said he

knew there were gangs in the

area, but they mostly kept to

themselves.

“Black Power and the

Mongrel Mob, they don’t cause

a real sense of community

“One of the young surfie guys

got beaten up by the Flagon

Wagon so we decided to go

around there. We rang the police

first and told them we were going

there to sort them out,” long-time

surfer Keiry Bennett recalled this

week.

The Flagon Wagon gang

members were swinging chains

as the surfies approached. A few

moments later it was all on.

“We grabbed their chains,

jumped up and down on the car

roofs . . . and when we were done

the police were waiting around

the corner to sort them out,” he

said.

They didn’t beat up surfers

after that, that’s for sure.”

The Hampshires emerged

in the 1980s from the Flagon

Wagon, and then faded away.

They were a feared gang in the

east, who would turn up to halls

having 21sts and other parties

and cause and get involved in

carnage.

As the years rolled on the

Ruthless Boot Boys, an odd fit

in an ever-growing Maori and

Polynesian population in

Aranui, and the Mongrel Mob

and Black Power would take up

residence.

Hampshire St was given the

1980s.

status as unofficial worst street

in the city – TV3’s Campbell Live

used the term when discussing

the merger of Aranui schools.

But the street’s notoriety went

to a national and international

level in September 2009 when the

bodies of Tisha Lowry, 28, and

Rebecca Chamberlain, 33, were

found under the floorboards of

one of the units on the corner of

Hampshire St and Wainoni Rd.

It became known as The House

of Horrors.

Mrs Chamberlain’s husband,

Jason Somerville, was jailed for

their murders. He had killed Ms

Lowry, who was his neighbour,

in September 2008.

A year later he killed his wife.

The House Of Horrors

would later be burnt down –

culprits still unknown. The

property was bought by the city

council and turned into a small

park Ripene Ma Reserve – White

Ribbon Reserve, which honours

those who lost their lives to

violence.

But for all of this Ms Staples

feels “pretty lucky” to live in

Hampshire St.

She has lived in the new state

house for the last two years, but

raised her children in various

spots along the street.

Her oldest is now 27,

her youngest daughter is a

16-year-old student at Haeata

Community Campus, her

mother lives just around the

corner.

DARK PAST: The

House of Horrors

where it was

discovered Jason

Somerville had buried

the bodies of his wife

and neighbour in

2008 and 2009 was

Ms Staples said a lot of that had

to do with the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, which provided an

opportunity for Hampshire St to

regenerate.

There’s a lot of community

and it’s good having the police

around. They come in and say

hello, make sure all the kids and

teenagers respect them. You don’t

see that in every street.”

“I actually feel a lot safer here

than I would in town. Everyone’s

got your back here, everyone

makes sure you’re safe,” she said.

New library, park upgrade and leadership

•From page 19

WHILE HAMPSHIRE St has

had a chequered past – it’s

future is full of rejuvenation and

community spirit.

Recent years have seen the

opening of a new library, upgrades

at Wainoni Park and the

rise of Aranui Community Trust

Incorporated Society, which runs

the tool shed, a walking group,

community

lunches,

amongst a

range of other

services.

Rob

Davidson,

who is the

Rob Davidson

husband of

Mayor Lianne

Dalziel, has been chairman of

ACTIS for 18 years.

“I went to the recent Affirm

celebration and I sat there with

Sandy Kaa, our kaumatua and

looked around at all the positive

changes. I actually became quite

emotional,” he said.

The people were just so engaged.”

Mr Davidson said the area had

managed to achieve so much in a

short period of time.

There’s the new $6.5 million

community hall . . .the new

library and we’ve shifted the playground

from behind the shops,

there’s been community plantings

days, it’s really opened up now so

houses overlook it and it’s much

safer,” Mr Davidson said.

Hampshire St’s high deprivation

index and low income rates

meant ACTIS’s role in the community

was on-going.

“You have to continue your

support. You can’t go in and then

leave again . . . it’s the sort of

thing we’ve got to carry on.”

The community spirit would

see the area flourish in the future,

Mr Davidson said.

Last week murals were painted

on the shop walls, courtesy of

street artists and students from

Haeata Community

Campus as part of an

ongoing campaign by

the Aranui neighbourhood

policing team to

brighten up the area.

Constable Jules

Atkinson said the

murals brought a

passion for art and the

community together.

“This project is about

uniting us all and engaging

with one another. We’ve found a

common interest and the locals

love it,” she said.

Te Kupenga o Aranui youth

worker and mentor Silivelio

Fasi, 28, painted

one of the murals and

was raised in the area.

“One of the key

changes is the park.

When I was younger

there was an old half

court and that was

about it, now there’s a

flash basketball court

and a path. It’s a lot

more vibrant,” he said.

Fasi said the look of the

area was changing, which was

helping outward perception.

There’s always been gang activity

and things. But at the same

time there’s a lot of kids having

a lot of fun. Biking up and down

the street, going to the shops and

sitting outside having a pie.”

Fasi said when you go down

Hampshire St everyone says

hello, gives the nod of a head or

the friendly eyebrow raise.

“When I was young, people

thought A-town was scary.

But I strongly believe there are

downsides to any community.

There has just been a magnifying

glass over Aranui.”

MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel

has come out in support

The Avon Otakaro Network

Susan McCormack

Trailblazer goes from top lawyer

Canterbury University will be led by two women for the first time in its history next year. One of these trailblazers is Susan McCormack

who will take over from John Wood as chancellor. She talks to Sophie Cornish about her journey from being a convent school girl to

starting her own law firm

You are about to embark

on a new role as chancellor of

Canterbury University. What do

you hope to achieve in the role

and how important is it to have

this representation of women in

leadership?

I’m honoured to become the

next chancellor of Canterbury

University. I think having a

woman in this role is not only

important for Christchurch

and Canterbury but also for the

country and internationally. I

am passionate about education

and believe it does make a

difference in a lot of people’s

lives. I am really looking

forward to working with the

vice-chancellor Cheryl de la Rey.

I think that our appointments

are going to bring some

interesting changes. We both are

good listeners and I think that

enhances our communication

abilities within the university

and beyond. That will assist us

to move things forward after

this rather hectic rebuild time.

I hope to provide research and

LEADERSHIP: Sue McCormack

will take the reins at

Canterbury University

next year.

teaching opportunities that not

only illustrate our high-quality

academic reputation, but also

reflect the expectations of

graduates in New Zealand,

who are bi-culturally

competent, dynamic,

and with interpersonal

skills that reflect

their empathy and

integrity.

Tell me about

your own

experiences

as a

student at

Canterbury

University?

Did you

study

there

as an

undergraduate?

How has

it changed

over the

years?

Way

back in

my school days I hadn’t really

thought much about what I

would do after school. My father

died when I was

six-yearsold.

My

mother was looking after five

kids under the age of seven. I

went to a convent school and

when it got time for me to finish

school, my mother asked the

nuns ‘what should I do with Sue?’

And they said ‘your daughter

isn’t really university material,’

so I then went, okay, guess what

I’m going to do? And I decided I

was definitely going to university.

There’s nothing like turning a

negative into a positive. So off

I went. My first degree was

at the old university site in

town. I didn’t really know

quite why I was going

to university, other

than to prove a point. I

studied sociology and

other arts subjects.

Then I travelled

overseas to Europe and

did what every young

person does and

worked in hospitality

and ski resorts and

had a good old play.

Then I came

back to New

Zealand

and

decided to do a law degree when

I was 27-years-old. It took me

about four or five years, the

university had shifted to Ilam

by then. I think the world had

changed a bit between my first

degree and my second. The playtime

of the past had probably

moved on and I had to study

hard and do quite well. There

was a change in focus. It took me

until age 27 to work out what I

wanted to do. I always thought

I was interested in commercial

company stuff and in terms of

law, that’s what I ended up doing

and I’ve loved it.

You are a very busy woman

with a lot of different roles –

what are they all and how do

you balance them?

My daughter always tells me

there is no such word as busy,

there is only fake busy. So maybe

I have adopted that and I don’t

find it too bad. Obviously I am

busy, I don’t like to use that

word anymore, there’s just a bit

going on. I managed to bring

back my husband from England

to New Zealand. We weren’t

married then, but he became my

husband later. This should’ve

been a very easy task, but him

being English, it wasn’t

actually that easy. He

was very supportive and

before it was popular

– as in prime minister

popular – he was a

stay-at-home dad.

At the moment,

I am a partner

at my law firm

Mortlock

McCormack

Law and I am

pro-chancellor

at the

university. I

will switch

to the

chancellor

role from

January 1.

to head of Canterbury University

I am also a director of

KiwiRail. In the past, I was the

director of the New Zealand

Symphony Orchestra. I actually

did used to play the cello for my

school and that’s because that

was the only instrument left at

the time and I never really think

I mastered it. But I have always

appreciated other people and

their abilities. But I think my

role with the orchestra was more

a governance role, which most

of these directorships are really.

We are pretty busy at KiwiRail

at the moment. We have got a lot

of new funding coming in from

the Government and have a lot of

ambitions. We have been trying

to re-open the main line between

Picton and Christchurch, which

of course got devastated with the

earthquake. So that has been a

big focus. I had the pleasure of

sharing a carriage with our prime

minister for the first trip we did a

couple of weeks ago, opening the

passenger line after two years. It

was fabulous meeting Jacinda, I

hadn’t formally met her before.

Have you lived in

Christchurch all your life?

Where did you grow up? What

led you to study law?

I have lived here my whole

life, apart from flying the nest

to spread my wings in a big

OE that lasted about five years.

Christchurch has changed a

lot since then and it changed

again in the earthquake. I say

this with a bit of tongue-incheek,

but I went to Cottesmore

College, which is now a drug

and rehabilitation centre called

Odyssey House. The school

shut long ago, although my

school friends and I often joke

a bit about what is there now.

I probably would have lived

overseas for longer, but I returned

to look after my mother who

wasn’t well.

You have a professional

background in commercial

law and knowledge of the

Christchurch construction

industry. How have you

participated in the rebuild?

PLANNING: Susan McCormack (second from right) played a key role in the city’s rebuild,

including the development of the The Terrace, which was led by Antony Gough (second

from left).

I had a governance role with

the rebuild at the university;

management did all the

details. But it was a $1.2 billion

rebuild, so governance was very

important. I have been involved

with Antony Gough from day

one as far as The Terrace build

goes. I travelled with him to

Melbourne to look at laneways

and helped to appoint architects,

builders and all that. I have been

on a lovely roller-coaster with

him for the past five years. It’s

amazing and I am very proud

of him to see that he has got

there. I think one of the biggest

challenges is the fact that the

central city was shut down by

CERA for the first few years,

which meant other developers

got a head start in the suburbs.

Then you take on a big project

like that and as everyone knows

with construction projects, they

normally tend to blow out in

their budgets. So we had those

normal challenges. We had to

reset a few times. Some of the

tenants now were tenants of

Antony’s before the earthquake

and were very loyal and patient

with him re-establishing that

site. In particular I would have

to say the Vieceli family, who

own the Bangalore Polo Club and

Amazonita. They supported him

all the way through and were

great.

I understand you like

tramping – where do you tramp

and what else do you do in your

spare time?

I’ve done most of the big walks

in Christchurch. I love getting

out and about. I haven’t yet

been to Stewart Island, but I am

heading there in February with

a group of women to do one of

the walks there. I don’t get out

every weekend but I do try and

cover off the big ones. I get away

for the odd long weekend to try

and get some different walks

in. I love skiing and do a bit of

that in the winter, but I don’t

have much spare time. I have

done the Banks Peninsula walk

a couple of times and I enjoy

getting around the Port Hills.

Every week I walk around Hagley

Park at least twice because we

are so lucky to have that in our

city. I usually just walk alone or

with a couple of friends. I call

myself an amateur florist as a bit

of a joke, because I love flowers

but only ever grow weeds. I have

a very weedy garden. I do love

art but I probably just admire it,

and not buy it, because it doesn’t

really fit in my budget to buy

it. I love spending special time

with people I care about and love

– that’s how I like to spend my

spare time.

Tell me a bit about your

family?

My English husband Don has

managed to stick with me. My

daughter Anna is a lawyer in

Dunedin. She hasn’t really ever

wanted to follow in my footsteps

so I am watching this space to see

what her next adventure might

be. She’s practising as a litigator

currently.

What’s something about you

that might surprise people –

anything that has helped shape

who you are?

Even when I went for my first

arts degree, and even my law

degree when I did that a lot

later, the population of women,

especially law graduates, wasn’t

that high. Now more than 50

per cent are females, so that I

think is a changing world really.

I probably set up the first female

law firm in Christchurch. I was

practising with two very large law

firms for a short time and then I

set up my own firm quite early in

my career with another woman.

Then she left to do her own thing

and I ran the firm on my own

for a little bit, then I merged

with Simon Mortlock. I suppose

my leadership with my firm

here, five of my employees have

worked with me for 20 years. I

am very careful about leadership

in terms of what that means and

I really think it is about caring

for people. If they feel really

cared for and know that you love

them then they are loyal and

that shows through. I think it

is important with leadership in

legal roles, with everything going

on in the media lately, and how

that helps it. You can’t always

turn around the Titanic but you

can always stamp your mark.

Where will Canty’s

BOOST:

Canterbury is

expected to get

121 more police

officers next

year, but where

they will be

stationed is yet

to be decided.

CANTERBURY IS expected to

get more police next year – but

where they will be stationed is yet

to be decided.

The new officers will be part of

a nationwide boost of 1800 police

officers over the next three years

as part of a $298 million increase

announced by the Government

in this year’s Budget.

Canterbury is set to receive 121

more officers.

Canterbury metro area commander

Superintendent Lane

Todd said the deployment of the

officers will be part of its wider

planning for the

city, which will

be looked at next

year once the

numbers have

been finalised.

Superintendent

Todd said

the police will

look across the

city to see where

the additional

officers can go.

“We will be doing a bit of science

behind it, looking at where

is our peak demand, when is our

busiest times. Traditionally, we

haven’t been able to do that,” he

said.

However, no decisions will be

made until the middle of next

year. He said it is possible more

officers could be placed at both

the Hornby and New Brighton

police stations. But the 24-hour

stations – central, southern and

Papanui – may also get more

staff.

The Hornby station could be

staffed around the clock, with

• By Sophie Cornish

THE 15-YEAR-OLD daughter of

a police detective sergeant hopes

to grow up to be like Jacinda

Ardern.

In a video series celebrating

Suffrage 125, Canterbury

policemen have revealed what

gender equality and women’s

suffrage means to them.

A detective sergeant said

during parent-teacher interviews

with his daughter, he was told

she was similar to Ms Ardern,

who was once taught by the

teacher.

“My daughter went home

from that interview thinking ‘I

can be like that, I can reach the

top’. That probably wouldn’t of

happened decades ago, but now

she realises that the world has

opened up for her.”

24-hour response officers, which

hasn’t happened for many years,

said superintendent Todd. The

station is currently crewed

during the day by youth aid and

community officers.

“What we’ve got now is

having stations that are more

hubs.”

Male officers speak out

The policemen’s names

were withheld to protect their

families.

In the series, organised by

the Canterbury police Women’s

Advisory Network Group, 20

policemen were asked questions

about gender equality.

The videos have been posted

on the Canterbury police

Facebook page.

They include questions such as

“what does gender equality mean

to you and the women in your

life?”

And “how can you help be the

change in a gender equal world?”

Another officer talked about

how the world had changed for

women while reflecting on his

grandmother’s life.

“My grandmother came to

New Zealand in 1942,” he said.

“We are trying to centralise more

Superintendent Todd.

The possibility that more officers could

“Women were not given the vote, they

fought for that vote, they fought for the

justice of us all to ensure social justice is

key. Today we have many people within

our organisation who come to work

everyday for social justice for all,” he said.

The video series was organised by

Senior Sergeant Toni Carroll, who cochairs

the group.

“I think New Brighton is a place worth

investing in . . . I see a lot of potential out

in New Brighton and the more staff we can

get out here to make it safer for everybody,

Sergeant Currie said New Brighton has

always had a high crime rate and having

more staff would be an “extra deterrence.”

Pressure on to save water

THE CITY council is taking

a myth-busting approach

to remind residents about

the need to save water this

summer.

It has put out a series of

fact-based articles via its

website and Facebook page in

an effort to correct common

misunderstandings about

water use in Christchurch.

Water supply programme

manager Helen Beaumont says

it’s important people get the

facts so they understand the

importance of saving water

this summer.

“We’ve had a lot people

effectively calling us out for

asking them to save water

when water bottling plants

are taking it out of the ground

every day. But there are two

problems with that. Firstly,

the city council doesn’t

decide who can or can’t take

groundwater, Environment

Canterbury does, while taking

environmental factors into

account. And secondly, the

water taken by water bottling

plants doesn’t actually affect

our public water supply –

they’re separate issues.”

Ms Beaumont says another

common misunderstanding is

around the need to conserve

water this summer.

“It’s not that we’re running

out of water. The problem is

we need to take some water

wells out of service so we

can upgrade them and stop

chlorinating as fast as possible.

If we keep using too much

PRECIOUS: Limit the

time you operate

your garden hose.

water, we have to use more

wells to cope, and then we

can’t work on them. It’s really

that simple,” she says.

A wet start to summer in

Christchurch has seen the city

council’s online water dial

spend a number of consecutive

days in the

“green zone”,

which is

where the

city council

wants to see

it stay as the

city moves

into the

warmest part

of the year.

The Star

Helen

Beaumont

Ms Beaumont says the rain

means people generally don’t

feel the need to turn on their

garden sprinklers or irrigators,

which are

the biggest household water

users.

“Running a garden sprinkler

or irrigator for an hour can

use up to 1500 litres – or 150

buckets – of water. That’s

a huge amount when you

consider we’re targeting an

average daily use of 212 litres

per person this summer. We’re

asking people to use hand-held

hoses to water – during early

morning or late evening –

because you can direct exactly

where the water goes and

avoid wasting it.”

council’s website at ccc.

$1110 Christmas cake part

of Gerry’s video series

GERRY BROWNLEE has proven

that a career as a celebrity chef

may be an option if politics ever

falls through.

In his latest series of Facebook

videos, Mr Brownlee showcased

his baking skills and a more laidback

side of his personality.

Mr Brownlee raised $1110 for

the Salvation Army after releasing

a series of videos showing

Facebook viewers how to make

the perfect Christmas cake and

auctioning the cake on Trade Me.

The donation was made as a

tribute to former Lieutenant-

Colonel and Salvation Army

worker Peter Savage, who died

last year.

Mr Brownlee told The Star he

did not want to comment on his

good deed, in spite of receiving a

large response from viewers, simply

saying his reasons for doing it

were “pretty self-explanatory.”

The videos received 34,600

Facebook views, with the cake’s

Trade Me auction being viewed

21,000 times before the sale.

Mr Brownlee said in a previous

statement that Mr Savage

“epitomised for me the

Christmas message of peace

and goodwill to all.”

He wanted to do what he could

“to raise a few dollars for the Salvation

Army to help them with

some of the extra things they do

around Christmas time.”

Mr Brownlee’s cake baking

videos were also released as part

of a new push to connect with his

social media audience.

The former Canterbury Earthquake

Recovery minister released

his first instructional video in

KITCHEN WHIZZ: Gerry

Brownlee’s special

Christmas cake recipe

has helped raise $1110

for The Salvation Army.

October, showing Facebook

viewers how to make home-made

fertiliser and attracting the interest

of more than 37,000 viewers.

Mr Brownlee told The AM

Show in October, the videos were

a great way to connect with a

wider audience and show the less

serious side of what he does on

the weekend.

Akaroa rock not

suitable for drilling

DEEP-BORE injection is

unlikely to be a suitable method

for disposing of Akaroa’s treated

wastewater, test drilling has

shown.

The city council has completed

drilling at two sites on the outskirts

of Akaroa.

Test drilling and

site remediation cost

$550,000. At this stage,

there are no plans to do

more drilling.

The first hole, on Old

French Rd, was drilled

to a depth of 250m.

The second hole, at the

site of the new wastewater

treatment plant at the

top of Old Coach Rd, was drilled

to a depth of 150m.

Senior project manager

Kylie Hills said the drilling

showed the rock to be highly

competent (lightly fractured)

basalt and tuff (a mix of rock and

volcanic ash).

“We wanted to know if the

area around Akaroa was suitable

for deep-bore injection,” Mr

Hills said.

“We found some fracturing,

but the fractures across the target

depths were high in mineral

deposits, which had in-filled and

Kylie Hills

restricted many of the flow paths

through the rock.”

The city council is looking at

options for recycling Akaroa’s

wastewater before its consent

to discharge into the harbour

expires in 2020.

Options include reusing the

treated wastewater to

irrigate trees or pasture

in nearby areas, or to

provide non-drinking

water for garden watering

and toilet flushing in

Akaroa.

Deep-bore was also

being investigated.

But Mr Hills said it

would take many more

holes than expected to achieve

the flow rate needed to dispose

of the town’s wastewater, making

it much more expensive than

other options available.

Mr Hills said the core

recovered from the first hole is

now on loan to the Canterbury

University’s geology department.

They’re pretty interested in

it because it’s the only drill core

ever recovered at these depths

from the Akaroa area,” he said.

“It offers a unique insight into

the volcanic history of Banks

Peninsula.”

Win big for your favourite

charity with Archibalds

TO CELEBRATE 100 years of business

in Christchurch, Archibalds Motors has

decided to give money away rather than

spend it on a party.

Ten charities have been short-listed for

the chance to win part of $100,000 in the

Drive for Good campaign, organised by the

motor company.

Members of the public

are able to vote for the

charity they think should

get the money.

Crusaders coach and

Drive for Good supporter

Scott Roberston spoke at

a breakfast for Drive for

Good on Friday in the

Scott

Roberston

company’s new Porsche

showroom.

He congratulated the

charities on making it to the top 10 “final”

and for their efforts to give back to the

community.

The charities were nominated by staff

and include Canterbury West Coast

Air Rescue Trust, Christchurch Early

Intervention Trust, Cholmondeley

Children’s Centre, Dementia Canterbury,

Mental Health Advocacy and Peer

Support, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s

Canterbury, Pillars, Ronald McDonald

House South Island, the Mental Health

Foundation, and the Christchurch branch

of the Cancer Society.

The charity with the most votes will get

$50,000 and the other two will get $25,000

each.

Archibalds Motors chief executive John

Fairhall said a staff member came up with

the donation idea and others agreed it was

the right thing to do.

“Plus, they still had their usual Christmas

party.”

Route change

for Orbiter

THE ORBITER bus will reroute to travel

via Cranford St, instead of along Philpotts

Rd from January 7.

The Philpotts Rd intersection with

QE II Drive will temporarily close in

January while work continues on the

Northern Corridor.

Once complete, QE II Drive will be

four-laned with a central median. A right

turn in and out of Philpotts Rd will not be

possible.

Camera funding

SUMNER RESIDENTS may know in

February if ratepayers will help fund the

security cameras they want.

Safer Sumner has approached the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community

Board for a grant of $16,000 after the police

were unable to fund the cameras.

The board will make a decision in

February when it works through the grant

requests.

Safer Sumner’s Kath Preston said in

her submission to the board, it was in

desperate need of support after the cost of

the cameras skyrocketed from $4000 to

$20,000.

The reason why the cost of the cameras

has gone up is because we have had to align

our cameras with the cameras that the

police use.”

“Turning 100 is really the first major

milestone that we’ve celebrated in a

significant way,” he said.

Voting runs for three months, with

the winning charities to be named in

March.

should get part of the $100,000.

Summer salad vegetables will

be maturing mid/late December.

Regularly apply side dressings of

fertiliser to enhance the growth of

these plants. With quick maturing

weeks) to avoid them all maturing

at the same time and ensuring

until they reach around 1m, and

tie up to stakes at regular points

(every 100–150mm).

Summer flowers

With little effort, summer annuals

can provide masses of colour

and beauty in the garden or containers.

Summer flowers include;

ageratum, cornflower, cosmos,

marigolds, petunias, portulacas,

salvias, strawflowers and zinnias.

Deadhead old finished flowers to

encourage more flowering.

Fruit trees

Early stone fruit such as plums

start to ripen towards the end

of the month. You may need to

remove some excess new growth

and thin laden bunches of

fruit to help promote heavy cropping.

Water newly planted fruit

trees and mulch as soils begin to

Berries and strawberries

Boysenberries, blackcurrants,

gooseberries and raspberries can

be harvested in late December.

They will be developing new

canes that should be tied down

Nature’s link between your home and your section

Drive down any well-established

residential street in Christchurch and

you will probably encounter numerous

hedges, nature’s fencing and shelter

solution.

Hedges offer privacy from nosy

neighbours, shelter from damaging

winds, a solid living background or

edging to a colourful garden, and an

architectural link between your home

and your section. We all know it is the

first impression that counts and a well

trimmed, healthy hedge adds value to

your property, and indicates a much

loved and well cared for residence.

Often planted last generation or even

earlier, hedges come in all shapes, sizes

and species, and benefit from individual

attention, rather than a one-size-fits-all

approach to maintenance and trimming.

For an amateur, a tidy hedge requires

hours of work and gorilla-length arms,

not to mention the cost and effort

involved with removing the debris.

Luckily, Hedgehogs Hedge

Specialists now offers cost-effective

and professional hedge care in the

Christchurch area.

Both Chris Sprott and Mark Jackson

have many years’ experience in

landscaping and property and hedge

care. They have joined up to offer

specialised hedge services, and cover

before the holidays

It’s a great month for harvesting

strawberries. Protect

plants with bird netting so they

don’t eat the fruit before you

do.

Place pea straw or crushed

bark around plants so fruit are

sitting on a ‘clean bed’. Water

as required and with the

minimum of maintenance you

should be harvesting delicious,

juicy strawberries well into

January.

Roses

It’s an excellent month

for rose before the difficult

months of January and February.

It’s important to continue

to deadhead finished flowers

to encourage more blooms.

Apply regular side dressings

of rose fertiliser to encourage

strong healthy growth.

Carry out summer pruning

NOURISHMENT:

Only irrigate your

lawn in cooler

temperatures.

DIVERSE: It’s time to harvest summer

salad vegetables.

to promote further flowering.

Inspect your roses regularly

for signs of blackspot and rust

and instigate a regular spraying

programme to control these

diseases.

Lawns

Depending on specific

summer weather conditions,

lawns should either be in peak

condition or beginning to dry

out. Avoid mowing too low

over hot summer months and

do not apply fertiliser.

If water supply allows, irrigate

lawns in the cooler parts

of the day. If you have bare

patches appearing, you will

need to be patient and wait

until autumn before carrying

out any repair work.

Preparing the garden

for summer holidays

TASTE: Late December is the normal

time to be picking berries.

Because we traditionally

holiday in the Christmas/

January period, “deserting” the

garden at this time can lead

to problems. It’s better to plan

ahead and be prepared. Avoid

problems by not having your

vegetable crops maturing during

this time, applying a good

layer of mulch and installing

a timer or asking a neighbour

to water your garden while

you are away. This is especially

important with plants in containers.

Have a blooming fantastic

Christmas and enjoy the

holidays.

Nutbrown takes coaching role at Belfast

• By Gordon Findlater

SUPER RUGBY player-comereferee

Jamie Nutbrown will add

another notch to his belt next

year when he starts a new role as

an assistant coach at Belfast.

When the metro rugby season

kicks off in April, Nutbrown

– who is a current national

referee squad member – will mix

reffing with his new role as a

backs coach at the club he began

playing for as a five-year-old.

The 37-year-old is not sure

whether he will pursue coaching

long-term, but is looking forward

to the challenge with Belfast.

“My main drive is to stay

involved really,” said Nutbrown.

“It possibly could be

something that I could do more

of if I enjoy it . . . but I still

enjoy the refereeing and being

involved, actually running

around on the field.”

Nutbrown won’t be on-hand

during match days for Belfast

due to his referee commitments.

Next year he will move to

North Canterbury where he

will referee the combined

country and North Canterbury

competitions. It will mean less

travel for Nutbrown, who lives

in Swannanoa, and no conflict

of interests with his Belfast team

competing in the premier metro

competition.

The former halfback cracked

the Canterbury NPC team in the

early 2000s before going on to

play 15 games for the Crusaders.

However, he spent the majority

of his playing time in New

Zealand with Bay of Plenty and

the Chiefs, before a move to

Welsh club Ospreys.

Nutbrown started refereeing in

2014 and has gone on to referee

regularly at provincial level.

He also runs the touchline

in Super Rugby games. His

experience and skill as one of the

county’s top referees is likely to

translate into coaching.

“Thinking like a referee and

knowing the main things they’re

looking at is something that

could help out. I’ve done that

during pre-seasons in previous

years and just pointed out to

guys what we’re looking for

and worked around any law

changes,” said Nutbrown.

He admits next year will be a

challenge committing to both

coaching and reffing, but he

plans to finish up his provincial

duties at the end of 2019.

As to whether he rates his

playing or reffing skills higher,

he said “it depends who you ask.”

“I’d probably say a better

player because I spent a lot

more time playing than reffing.

It’s a bit harder to judge with

refereeing. If one coach thinks

you had a great game, there’s a

good chance the other one won’t

think so.”

PREBBLETON’S hope of

rugby prospects has been dashed

after they lost out to metro club

Burnside.

Isaiah Punivai made headlines

“You can’t limit your own

options so it [Prebbleton] was

something to look at, but I guess

what’s done is done now, my

next few years are already set,”

said Punivai. “Burnside just kind

of ticked all the boxes for me.”

Prebbleton are disappointed to

miss out on the potential return

of one of the most high-profile

junior player to come out of the

club.

“My understanding from

those discussions are that he was

keen and the family was keen

to have a year with us for our

centennial year,” said Prebbleton

coach Derek Todd.

“He’s a player that we were

really looking forward to

having, not just because of his

ability, but about promoting

said Gunn.

The message this week is to

reinforce that the reason we

fought so hard to earn a spot in

the final is for us to go and win

it.”

The Pride will be led by

captain Annalie Longo, who was

named national league MVP on

Tuesday.

The midfielder finished with

seven league goals, the third

most in the competition, behind

Capital’s Sarah Gregorius with

12, and Pride striker Cody

Taylor on 10.

The Pride have met the Lights

twice this year, splitting the

spoils. The Pride lost 0-3 when

they met at English Park last

month. However, they took the

honours 2-1 in Auckland in

October.

The two have met in the final

Punivai is contracted to

understood Prebbleton were due

to meet with Punivai after he

The outcome from that

that he was told he was playing

for Burnside,” said Todd.

“That’s fine, but why wasn’t

that offered to anyone else or

THE ANNOUNCEMENT of

Marina Erakovic’s retirement

on Tuesday was a swift

reminder about the dark times

New Zealand tennis is currently

experiencing.

Tell this to anyone who

disagrees and they’ll be quick

to point out Michael Venus’

French Open doubles title last

year, and his final appearance at

Wimbledon recently. However,

we can only pretend for so long

that the future promotion of

the game in New Zealand can

survive on having three top 50

doubles players.

Do the names Oliver Marach,

Robert Farah and Juan Sebastian

Cabal ring a bell? No, even

a keen tennis fan would struggle

to know they’re three of the

world’s top five doubles players.

The only chance tennis has of

staying relevant in an age where

there’s more competition than

ever against other sports is a

legitimate top 100 singles player.

Erakovic didn’t set the world

alight but she was a gentle reminder

at grand slams that, yes,

New Zealand does exist.

In men’s tennis, we haven’t

had a top 100 ranked singles

player since Brett Steven in

1999. Surely the alarm bells

should be ringing 20 years after

last having a regular in the mix

at grand slams.

To make matters worse we

could have a top 100 player right

now.

singles, Heap was the best of

the Christchurch players. He

New Toyota Corolla is

better at everything

MY WIFE will tell you

I’m not a big fan of

supermarkets, and she

is right, I see them as a

necessary evil.

However, there is one

thing that I find favour

with, and that is when it

comes to pay, the item

is scanned through the

barcode and that is what it

costs.

It should be that simple

when it comes to buying

cars – one price, no discounts,

what you see on the

price tag is what you pay.

Honda has utilised that

price promise concept for

several years, and it’s been

very successful for the

company, people rock up

and there is no need to talk

turkey over the price.

Toyota, too, have just

incorporated that method

of selling and judging by

recent sales figures it’s keeping

Toyota in a comfortable

position as the end-of-year

sales figures roll in.

Toyota’s success this year

has also been buoyed by the

arrival of a new Corolla, a

car which doesn’t look that

much different to that of

the previous generation, but

underneath it has had some

significant changes for

comfort, safety and driveability.

The Corolla lands with

a choice of five different

models, two of those are

hybrid. Regular readers

will recall my hybrid

evaluation at the beginning

of last month, and it

served to convince me that

hybrids are a viable future

as we head into the electric

revolution.

However, this evaluation

surrounds the mid-spec SX

model which has a traditional

power plant, a 2-litre

four-cylinder petrol engine.

Gone is the 1.8-litre unit of

the previous generation; in

the name of progress, the

new power plant is more

refined than before, has

more power and marginally

greater fuel economy.

Toyota rates the new

engine with 125kW at the

top end and 200Nm of

torque, up 21 per cent and

15 per cent respectively.

The points of delivery are

quite tall in the rev band

– 6600rpm and 4800rpm,

however, such are the

overall outputs there is still

a broad spread of power.

Take into account as well,

the engine drives through

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

TOYOTA COROLLA SX: No-haggle price of $32,490.

a paddle-shift continuously

variable transmission

which is stepped through

10 points, which means the

engine isn’t loaded.

Together there is good

harmony and fluid response

to accelerator input. The

engine feels quite zingy

and strong, it works the rev

band freely and, I guess,

you’d expect nothing less,

Toyota has built millions

of Corolla engines and I’d

be surprised if it didn’t feel

right.

• Price – Toyota Corolla

SX, $32,490

• Dimensions –

Length, 4652mm;

width, 1843mm;

height, 1697mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,

1998cc,

125kW, 200Nm,

10-step CVT

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.2sec

• Fuel usage –

6l/100km

It is also an engine which

is light on fuel use. That’s a

necessary criteria in these

days of wayward fuel prices.

Toyota claims a six-litre per

100km (47mpg) combined

cycle average, which sits

well with the fuel usage

readout in the test car. It

was showing a constant

7.2l/100km (39mpg) during

a mix of pre-Christmas

inner-city driving and a

Port Hills loop. At 100km/h

the engine is working over

slowly at just 1500rpm,

returning an instantaneous

fuel usage consumption of

just 4.5l/100km (63mpg).

My wife had a work

Christmas function to attend

in Barrys Bay, so the

Corolla was used to travel

to that event.

The Christchurch/Akaroa

Highway isn’t my favourite

piece of road given the

The Star

volume of traffic, but the

Corolla responded well on

the few overtaking opportunities

that presented

themselves. An overtaking

time of 6.8sec is possible

(80km/h-120km/h), while

from a standstill it will

also launch to 100km/h in

9.2sec.

Those figures give you

some indication of its zest

and ability. It also handles

nicely with beautiful steering

and strong steering

feedback. That’s no surprise,

over the years Corollas

destined for our market

have had chassis engineering

developed for our roads

and that certainly showed

on the twists and turns of

the Akaora hill.

Add in the development

work Toyota has done with

the chassis in the latest

generation

car and you have a dynamic

handling vehicle, one which

belies its role as a mainstream

hatchback.

Elsewhere, the Corolla

stands out for its quality

of build and high amount

of fitment. At the new nohaggle

price of $32,490, the

SX includes all the features

you need for convenience

and, of course, comfort has

been a high manufacturing

priority.

On the subject of prices,

an entry-level base model

Corolla is available for

$29,990, and that would be

the car for me, but if you

want all the bells and whistles

then the ZR at $37,490

is also there to tempt.

According to Toyota’s

advertising slogan, nothing

has changed for the new

generation Corolla – except

everything. Sure, it looks

like the Corolla we have

come to know and love,

and it certainly drives like

a Corolla should, the only

thing is that it is much

better in every respect.

SALE PENDING

AVONHEAD: 11/56 Gladson Ave

FIRST IN, BEST DRESSED:

Independent living in the best 60+ complex in the NW.

Dear Clients,

Sometimes people think that when we sell a house we

just chuck it on the internet, let it sit, maybe do a couple

of open homes and then collect a huge fee for doing

……. what? Heck, says Mr Brown, I could have done that

myself, it only took 3 weeks. Maybe Mr Brown hasn’t

taken into account he has a demanding full time job, a

young family, elderly parents plus sport and community

commitments.

Mr Brown is unlikely to be able to complete the

transaction by himself. He will have seek advice about

the procedure, how to price it /market it and involve

someone to assist him with the legal aspects. It’s likely

the buyer will expect him to negotiate the commission

he’s not paying and it’s likely to be awkward negotiating

directly with the buyer. The buyer may not realise they

have no guarantees regarding the sale and their only

remedy in case of non-disclosure by the private seller is

time consuming and costly private court procedure.

By using a salesperson qualified and licensed under The

Real Estate Agents Act 2008 you will have a professional

working for you, available 7 days a week 24 hours a day.

They will have an excellent working knowledge of

current legislation as it relates to the real estate

transaction. They are accountable. They are skilled

negotiators. And they are patient, especially in the

current market which has seen properties on the

market a lot longer. And gee – you know sometimes we

don’t even get paid. The fee is paid only upon a

successful sale – I don’t know of any other profession

who would sometimes work for 3 months or more for

nothing? Do you?

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

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

Cave Rock

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffere damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

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

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

It was the firs time Mr Garth

“We produced some top quality

Mr Garth, who has b en a

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

Mr Garth hopes t own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

The bylaw comes as an increasing

In the past year, the district

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

“To get second behind Ireland

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

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.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ll be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffere damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

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

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes t own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking t operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

Pupils learn about role of war horses

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if
