A haircut to help find Garry a job

PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

A FREE haircut has given Garry

Dickey the confidence he needs

to keep applying for jobs.

His new look came courtesy

of Avondale’s Bristol Barbers,

which offered its services for free

last week at the Christchurch

City Mission to help make

Christmas a little brighter for

the homeless and less fortunate.

Mr Dickey, who is currently

unemployed, said haircuts were

usually “too expensive” so he

appreciated the free offer.

After living on the streets

for seven years, he now lives

in a home in the central city,

thanks to an initiative led by

the Christchurch Methodist

Mission.

The initiative, called

Housing First, has helped more

than 30 people into homes this

year.

Prescription

meds

add to

rising

drug-driver

statistics

• By Sophie Cornish

MOTORISTS WHO shouldn’t

be driving after taking

prescription medication may be

playing a role in the increasing

drug-driving statistics.

The latest figures show

the rate of drug-drivers in

Canterbury has increased

almost nine times since

2012.

Road policing operations

manager Senior Sergeant Kelly

Larsen said impaired driving

can come in many different

forms, but motorists affected by

prescription medications

are becoming an “emerging

risk.”

“As we get older, we tend

to take more prescription

medication . . . drivers need

to be aware that prescription

medication can impact on their

ability to drive safely and take

personal responsibility for this,”

she said.

“When your doctor

prescribes a new medication, it’s

important to ask what impact

it might have on your ability

to drive, especially taking

into consideration any other

medication you are already

taking.

“We have an ageing

population – about 126,000

drivers in Canterbury are over

the age of 65.”

A CANTERBURY University law

student being investigated for a

sexual assault has been allowed to

go overseas on a study-related trip.

Bu the university’s dean of

“I can’t comment

told The Star

yesterday.

The Star has

The Star has been told it is a

The Star sent a number of questions

to Canterbury University

yesterday but none would be answered.

Said Canterbury University

spokeswoman Margaret Agnew:

“UC cannot respond to allegations

that are before the police.”

She referred the questions

back to Dr Cheer. Her phone was

Fire rages, homes at risk

City still needs to

conserve water

It may have been a wet start

to the summer but the need to

conserve water remains. “The

frequent rain over the past few

weeks has meant our water use

has stayed largely in the green

zone, which is where we want

it to be,’’ said city council three

services manager Tim Drennan.

But he said when the weather

warms up, there is a much

greater chance of being in the

yellow or red zones if water is

not conserved.

Coastal pathway gets

$200k funding boost

The Coastal Pathway is a step

closer to being completed

with a $200,000 grant from

Rātā Foundation. The 6.5km

walking and cycling track,

launched in 2012, will stretch

from Ferrymead to Scarborough

Beach via Redcliffs and Sumner.

The pathway is expected to be

finished by August.

EXPLORE: Two pop-up gardens have been installed in Cathedral Square, one featuring 180 pool noodles and native

plants. A third garden will be created next month.

When noodles meet nature

POOL NOODLES have popped

up in Cathedral Square as part of

a new garden project.

Noodlescape was designed as

part of a competition organised

by city council’s Enliven Places

Programme.

Entrants were asked to come

up with a garden design that

featured a seating area, greenery

and colour within a compact

space.

Noodlescape, which has been

installed near the Distinction

Hotel, is a contemporary garden

based around 180 pool noodles

and native plants

The artists were Thailandbased

GEDES Studio and

charitable trust Greening the

Rubble delivered the project.

Another winner, which has

been installed in the Square, is

Time to Heal.

The garden was designed by

Avonhead School and supported

by Katherine Booker, a motherof-two

and enthusiastic gardener.

She enlisted help from children

at the school to design, build and

plant the garden, including her

son Thomas, a year 6 pupil.

Four planter boxes outline the

space and a central pohutukawa

tree has a 12-sided timber bench

built around it.

The shape was inspired by the

hours of a clock and the four

raised beds are like the points on

a compass.

Herbs, such as thyme and

rosemary, and rongoā (traditional

Māori medicine) plants, fill the

planter boxes.

The third winner was Stained

Glass Pavilion, designed by

Tamsin Harrington and Dirk

Vesser.

It uses tinted acrylic panels set

within a laser-cut steel pergola to

create the look of a stained glass

tunnel surrounded by greenery.

It will be installed in the Square

in January.

City council head of urban

design, regeneration and

heritage Carolyn Ingles said the

pop-up gardens will add a new

element to the Square, making

it more nature-focused and

colourful.

The pop up gardens will

remain in the Square until at

least April.

At the end of the project

the city council will give

consideration to what plants

and other items can be reused or

donated to the community.

However, the Time to

Heal garden will be donated to its

designer Avonhead School.

Contractors are set to dig in

at the Riccarton Community

Centre site, after a sod-turning

ceremony for the new $4.5

centre in Clarence St will replace

the earthquake-damaged

council site next door. The new

facility is on track to open late

next year.

Minister Nanaia Mahuta, acting

for the Minister for Greater

Christchurch Regeneration, has

further development at the

multiple courts for sports such

as netball, basketball and futsal,

a swimming pool with diving

and triathlon facilities, and

Murderer threatened guard

• By Robb Kidd

A MAN WHO bludgeoned a

woman to death with an axe

in her Christchurch home

threatened to kill a prison officer

while being served dinner, a

court has heard.

Stephen James King, 60, is at

present serving a life sentence

at Otago Corrections Facility

for the murder of 45-year-old

Ordette Lloyd-Rangiuia in their

Christchurch home on January

31, 2004.

King – described in reports at

the time as “a career criminal”

with more than 150 convictions

– inflicted 46 injuries to the

victim, including 18 blows to her

head with the blunt end of a logsplitting

axe.

The day of the murder was

King’s birthday and he celebrated

by drinking most of a bottle

of tequila and smoking cannabis

and methamphetamine, the

court heard.

The defendant was sentenced

to a minimum period of imprisonment

of 16 years, which

lapses in 2021. King came before

the Dunedin District Court last

week after pleading guilty to

threatening to kill.

On August 17, prisoners were

being served their evening meal.

A Corrections officer passed

King’s meal through the small

hatch in his cell door and immediately

found himself on the

end of a tirade.

The inmate began abusing two

of the staff members who were

dishing out the food and “when

he saw the victim his demeanour

escalated to rage.”

“In a very angry voice he

looked directly at the victim and

threatened to kill him,” a police

summary of facts said.

Judge Kevin Phillips said the

threat featured obscenities.

When spoken to about the

incident, King said he hated

the victim “with a passion” and

claimed a change in medication

was behind his aggressive demeanour.

He nonetheless called

his comments “banter”.

The court heard the Corrections

officer had worked at the

prison for six years and it was

his first experience of such a

threat.

He took it seriously and the incident

had greatly upset his wife,

the judge said.

King was sentenced to six

months’ imprisonment.

The term would not affect his

parole-eligibility date but would

be taken into account by the

Parole Board when considering

his suitability for release.

Originally, the exhibition was

designed to last six months but

its temporary lease has been

The Canterbury Horticultural

City council staff suggested the

kiosk would be better suited as a

than for commercial use.

THE ANDROIDSS’ Mark

Wilson and former promoter

Martin McPherson recall the

night United States punk icon

Iggy Pop turned up at the British

for The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

gig.

A leather jacket with an

embroidered tiger on the back

and a denim Greek fisherman’s

hat was the perfect disguise for

Iggy Pop.

It was July 13, 1979, and

Iggy Pop was in Christchurch

promoting his I’m Bored album.

McPherson had organised the

gig, and Christchurch punk band

The Androidss were the headline

act. You weren’t allowed in

without a hat.

McPherson had received a

phone call from Iggy Pop’s

publicity agent, who needed some

local knowledge.

“I suggested that I might be

able to help but they would have

to come to Lyttelton because

I was on my way (to The Mad

Hatter’s Tea Party) and nothing

was going to prevent me from

going to that,” he recalls.

McPherson was working the

door. He didn’t recognise Iggy

Pop and his publicist when they

arrived and they were charged $5

to get in like everyone else.

“I went outside and I was

sitting on the fence and had a

smoke. He came over and we

had a smoke together, we even

swapped T-shirts,” he said.

Inside the hotel, The Androidss

had started playing. McPherson

and Iggy Pop chatted.

“All I can remember is that

distinctive New York accent, it

really stood out. We were talking

about the music scene. He was

really interested in what Lyttelton

and Christchurch were doing,

what we did and what we were

doing.”

The Androidss started playing

Iggy Pop’s The Passenger. “He

went inside and stood in front of

the band,” McPherson said.

Lead guitarist and vocalist

Mark Wilson said the band

played about five Iggy Pop covers

a set, by coincidence.

“I saw this guy and I thought,

what, that guy looks a lot like

Iggy Pop,” he said.

They soon realised it was the

real deal. “He was sitting to the

side of the stage, and we offered

him the mic. He said ‘no man, it’s

your song’.”

When the set was finished,

the band went over to meet

Iggy Pop, who was sitting at a

table, keeping a low profile. They

shared a whisky and chatted.

“He didn’t say much, kept his

News

Now

emembering the British Hotel

The Star’s article on the history of the British Hotel brought back fond memories for The Androidss band member Mark

Wilson and event organiser-turned-Central Otago district councillor Martin McPherson. Julia Evans talks to them about the

time they met the godfather of punk

PASSENGER: Godfather of

punk Iggy Pop watched The

Androidss play at the British

in 1979.

Peter Thompson – I

read your interesting article

in The Star about the British

Hotel. I would like to point

out a few points that might

be of interest to you. I was the

property manager for Dominion

Breweries from 1982-1992. In

this role I was responsible for

about 148 hotels and taverns

throughout the South Island.

The British Hotel was one of

my responsibilities. The land

and buildings were owned at

the time by the then Lyttelton

Borough Council, which in turn

was leased to various operators –

Guy Daigneault being one such

party. At the time of starting my

role with DB, the British was

under DB control and sub-leased

to Margaret and Fred Archibald.

I believe they had been

operating the hotel for several

years before starting my role

in DB. Mr and Mrs Archibald

operated the hotel until about

1985 or 1986, not too sure. At

the time of their departure

to take up the lease of the

European Hotel in Dunedin,

DB sold its interest in the British

Hotel. On one occasion, the

United States commander of

an ice breaker wanted to use

the Basement Bar for his crew

and sort out a price with Mr

Archibald. He stated a price

(can’t recall the amount), say

$1000, the commander peeled

off US$1000.

Mr Archibald of course

was referring to New Zealand

dollars. I believe it was a great

night. Another instance was

the upgrade of the tank room,

which needed the floor to be

re-plastered. To do this with

minimal disruption to trade, the

work was undertaken over the

Easter break closing the bar late

Thursday, plastering the floor

on Good Friday. For Saturday

while the plaster was setting,

DB parked a tanker on the street

with a hose feed to the bars –

one brand only. On the Sunday,

I had two carpenters attend to

various repair work.

During a tea break a phone

conversation was heard between

Mr Archibald and what

appeared to be a female with Mr

Archibald laying down the law

as to an outstanding debt. The

safe was open at the time, with

Mr Archibald asking me if I

noticed anything different about

the safe. To me the safe was like

any other similar safe, common

to pubs. However, Mr Archibald

asked me to follow the line of

the wallpaper above the safe to

the back of the safe. Low and

behold, the safe had no back to it

and apparently this had been the

case for many years. I’m sure if

the customers of the British were

aware of this, a quick forward

manoeuvre and its contents

could readily be accessed. Mr

and Mrs Archibald were a great

couple and the British Hotel

continued in safe operational

guidance during their watch.

Jackie Crawford – The

fingers up in a V for victory sign,

then left,” Wilson said.

But as low profile as it was, Iggy

Pop’s foray into Lyttelton soon

became public.

They’re tough as bitches, but

they’re beautiful,” he was quoted

as saying about The Androidss in

The Press. “It certainly helped out

because we soon up and left to

Auckland,” Wilson said.

Only three members of the

seven-piece band are still around.

The article also struck a chord with readers who share their stories about the British

lawyer and friends could be seen

there among the crews from

visiting ships from all around

the world, in the bottom bar

of course. There was a group

of working girls who often

travelled with some crews and

the place was thumping with

people. They were known as

ship girls and they used to travel

around New Zealand on the

ships as a lifestyle choice.

Yes, the British was known

globally with the shipping

industry workers. This was

pre-container ships and had

a lot more workers on board.

Visiting seamen were not really

troublesome but Christchurch

locals were and they sometimes

came over and caused fights.

There was never a dull moment

downstairs in the Dive Bar and

the girls used to spill up the

stairs alongside local fisherman

and a few hard drinking and

singing locals upstairs. It was

not dull and I used to make

a part time income for a few

years selling instant polaroid

photos to the ship girls and their

chosen partner. I missed Iggy

Pop unfortunately, but those

in the know used to check out

the shipping arrivals in the

newspaper to see what the action

was like. All this changed when

container ships became the

norm. However, now all that is

history. I still live in Lyttelton. It

has been gentrified and cleaned

up. It was nice to see the article.

Ryan Reynolds

Bringing the city back to life

Gap Filler has led more

than 80 projects to make

the most of vacant sites in

the central city, including

the Dance-O-Mat, Super

Street Arcade and book

exchange. Co-founder

Ryan Reynolds talks to

Julia Evans about his

earthquake refugee

cat Mario and how the

initiative was created

Tell me a little bit about

yourself?

My partner Coralie and I

live in Lyttelton. She was nine

months pregnant the week

before we moved. She’s one of

the Gap Filler founders and ran

the organisation for the first few

years. We lived in Addington

after we lost our house in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

We have always been central city

people, but when we lost that

place, we ended up in Addington

for a number of years. Then we

had a baby on the way and we

decided to move to Lyttelton. I

grew up in the United States so

all of my family are overseas and

Coralie grew up in Australia, so

all her family is overseas, and

Lyttelton is just the sort of place

with a reputation that preceded

it where people look out for

one another. Now we have a

three-year-old daughter and a

14-month-old son.

I hear you’ve adopted an

earthquake refugee? How did

your cat Mario come into the

family?

When the house we were living

in on Worcester St, a couple of

blocks from the Cathedral, fell

over it was inside the cordon. A

couple of weeks later, we tried

to salvage some of our stuff out

of the house, possibly illegally.

He’d been hanging around in

our backyard for a couple of

months before the earthquake.

We wondered if he was one of

the neighbours’ cats. When we

went back to the wrecked house,

DESIGNER: Ryan Reynolds helped to set up the Gap Filler project after the earthquakes.

he was there hanging around the

rubble, all covered in dust and it

looked like he hadn’t eaten in a

couple of weeks. We were staying

with some friends who had a

small townhouse in Spreydon, so

we turned up with this cat. We

said: “Sorry, I know we don’t have

much room, but hope you don’t

mind we’ve got a cat?”

How did you go from

electrical engineering to theatre

and film?

Electrical engineering, as it was

taught at my university in the

US, was actually a very creative

discipline. It wasn’t a word that

they ever used at all, but it was a

lot of small group work in the lab,

dreaming up things you might

be able to design and build and

testing things out on paper, then

test circuits and when you hit

something that seems workable,

you take it out into the real world.

So I got a lot of opportunities as a

student to dream of crazy things

and work with a few friends

from start to finish on a project.

I loved that. Then towards the

end of the degree, myself and

all of my friends were being

recruited by giant multi-national

corporations, which have really

strong recruitment programmes.

I was going to be an aerospace

manufacturer, which made

military planes, and I had

other friends ending up with

really huge companies. I moved

to Texas for an internship

experience and was at a facility

where they built military planes.

There were more than 30,000

people that worked there.

That kind of romantic thing

of working in small groups,

thinking up projects and seeing

them through from start to finish

is just not the truth of working in

a company like that. I was young

and stupid and freaked out, so I

decided to run about as far away

as you could and that was to New

Zealand.

So you came to Canterbury

University?

I ended up doing an

exchange in the final year of my

engineering degree. I picked New

Zealand because it was far away

and no one else was coming here.

So Canterbury University was

also an engineering university.

In the US tertiary system,

everyone needs to get some arts

points, even if you’re getting an

engineering degree. When I got

to Canterbury, I didn’t need any

more engineering credits, so I

got involved in various arts and

humanities. The theatre and film

studies programme was where I

landed, they offered me a postgraduate

position and I never

looked back.

after the earthquakes

What’s your favourite film?

Probably Fellini’s​ 8½ still,

although I haven’t seen it in a

long while.

I bet you get really sick of

people mentioning a certain

Hollywood movie star you share

a name with?

Burt Reynolds! Yeah, it’s a

shame about him dying and

all. That’s who you mean, right?

Okay, he’s the bane of my

existence.

How did Gap Filler come

about?

It was started up after the

September 4, 2010, earthquake.

Coralie was working at the Arts

Centre, running the artist-inresidence

programme, and the

Arts Centre made a really quick

decision when the buildings were

badly-damaged to halt all of their

public programmes.

So she was made redundant

almost immediately. I was

employed at the university at

that time, so we were in a really

fortunate position to say don’t

rush into anything, take a bit

of time and see what happens.

I think it was really Coralie

wandering the city and seeing

gap sites where buildings had

been demolished and who knows

how long they would be empty

for.

They were all of our social

gathering spaces, the cheap and

cheerful restaurants, the amateur

dance studios in the upper

floors, the cultural life of the city

had really been damaged more

than the infrastructure in that

September quake. So all credit to

Coralie for hatching the idea for

what became Gap Filler.

We lost our house in the

February quake and just about

everything we owned. The scale

of the disaster was so big. We put

out the message on Facebook –

that’s the end of our Gap Filler

experiment. But a bunch of

people got in touch saying, no,

all of the cinemas in the central

city are closed, so you need to do

an outdoor cinema project, the

libraries are closed, so let’s do

some sort of book project.

For the next year and a half,

everything we did was pretty

much someone else’s idea that we

helped facilitate.

What’s your favourite Gap

Filler project so far?

They’re all so different. I really

love the Super Street Arcade

project, the giant arcade game

on Tuam St. That’s been there for

two years, it still gets 300 games

played every day. Hopefully

we might have one going in in

Melbourne early to mid next year

and I think that would get a lot

of attention. So that’s definitely a

favourite. Every time I cycle past

and see the look on people’s faces

discovering it for the first time it

is pretty priceless.

What’s the most recent

project?

Stage one of the slack-lining

space went in on Tuesday last

week. It just finished up end of

last week. The soft fall and crash

area is going to be installed

end of January and that will be

complete. We’re working on a

huge project at the moment. It’s

along the edge of Rauora Park,

right by the Margaret Mahy

Playground, we’re building a

detour off the path with a lot of

berms and bumps that runs the

whole length of the track. It’s

about 110m long and you can

ride it on your commuter bike or

a Lime scooter or even if you’re

a pro-BMX rider, there’s still

enough there to be interesting.

That will be finished at the end

of the week. We’re struggling to

find a name, we’re going to put

it out on social media for some

help to choose the name. Both

this track and the slack-lining

park are part of our Placemaking

at One Central programme in

partnership with Fletcher Living.

Was the Gap Filler project

only supposed to be temporary?

In our minds, it was an

earthquake response thing. We

thought there would be six or

12 months of projects that we

would do. Then the February

earthquake hit so we thought

there’d be a couple of years of

work to be done. But then the

pace of the rebuild sunk in and

we realised it was going to be

a long haul. In 2013, we got a

call from the Auckland Council

and they said we love what

you’re doing in Christchurch,

can you come up here and help

design a programme of stuff for

us to do up here? We were like

what? We absolutely thought

of ourselves just as a disaster

response initiative. But through

people and getting invited to do

work in Auckland, Melbourne,

Copenhagen, Taiwan and others,

we’ve come to see that a lot of the

top rated cities in the world are

looking for this kind of activity

all the time, not just after a

disaster. Getting citizens more

actively involved in shaping the

places that they live is a huge

current trend and the way of the

future. It’s been a big learning

curve for us, along the way we

realised that gosh, if thriving

cities are wanting us to work with

them, then this way of thinking

can be part of the long term

Christchurch. You look at some

things like the new procurement

policy for the city council that

GAMERS:

Reynolds

the giant

arcade game

which he says

was one of

his favourite

projects to

work on.

just came out. Now everyone who

gets a contract with council to

deliver goods and services has to

have a local benefit and social,

cultural and environmental

outcomes in mind. Those sort of

principals we have, empowering

locals and making sure locals are

benefitting alongside the massive

property developments, are now

becoming policy. It’s exciting.

What do you do to relax?

I’m not very good at it, I do

work a lot. The kids help. You

can’t be in two places with a

14-month-old and a toddler. You

can’t have split attention or be

trying to do other things, which

is nice. We like to go for walks

around Lyttelton, get out in the

garden, go for bike rides. A lot

of family stuff. One of the things

Coralie and I talk a lot about is

we both enjoy mountain biking

and part of what we like is that

you have to be so focused on

what you’re doing in the moment

that you can’t think about other

things. You can’t wonder what’s

going on at work. Parenting is

much the same.

Tips for planting and harvesting

January can be a busy

time in the vegetable

patch. Rachel Vogan

gives a few tips on

when to water, plant

and – what we’ve all

been waiting for –

harvest

NUMEROUS CROPS will be

actively growing and producing a

hearty harvest this month.

To keep them flourishing, keep

an eye out for pests and diseases.

As soon as you spot something,

deal with it – turning your

back on it will not remedy the

problem.

Keep the fluids up in your

garden, whether it be with water,

worm tea or liquid fertiliser.

Deep watering is ideal and only

required every second or third

day in good soils. In poor, dry or

dusty soils, it may be required to

water on a daily basis.

If crops seem to be looking a

little flat, with foliage turning

yellow and growth is slow, it

is more than likely the soil is

lacking in nutrients. Remedy this

with an application of vegetable

fertiliser, liquid manure or

seaweed tonics.

Tips for harvesting

•Harvest or pick as close to

eating as possible. By doing this

you are ensuring the best possible

flavour and the ultimate amount

of nutrition.

•Harvest at the beginning

or end of the day, when the

temperatures are cooler.

•Allow crops to fully ripen

on the plant before harvesting,

especially crops like tomatoes,

beans, peas and eggplants.

•If you have an abundance or

excess amount of produce, share

it around, offer it to neighbours,

friends, family or the team at

work.

1. Beetroot

This superhero of a crop is

a good one to plant or sow

now. Prepare the ground in

advance so it is loose and

friable – essentially crumb-like.

If other crops have been in the

soil previously this season, add

in some more gutsy compost

or manure to give the soil a

boost and to help it hold on to

moisture.

Space seedlings about a hand

span apart and, when sowing

seeds, keep the row wellwatered

as this will speed up

the germination process (the

seed coat is quite hard). Harvest

can begin as soon they look big

enough to eat. Baby beets are

sweeter and, if left in the ground

to fully mature, intensify in

flavour. Be generous when

planting or sowing so you have

plenty of menu options.

2. Courgettes and

scallopini

New courgettes and scallopini

can be sown and planted out

now. These crops need a bit of

room to move, so best to provide

them with 1 sq m in the garden.

Seeds germinate in a fortnight

and are ready to plant out within

a month or so. Seedlings should

still be in the shops.

While they grow happily in a

container, they need a big one to

support the big meaty foliage and

have enough root room.

your summer vegetables

White mould and mildew

can be a real problem at this

time of year. Treat both with a

baking soda and milk mixture

or a spray registered to control

it. Alternatively, leave it be – it

rarely affects other plants and

courgettes seem to keep cropping

regardless of the disease.

3. Basil

Basil is one of the best summer

herbs and now is the perfect time

to get more planted out to extend

your harvesting season. Look to

seedlings as germinating seed

will take about a month, making

you miss the warm months they

love.

The better the soil is, the

better the results will be – blend

in vegetable fertiliser before

planting in the ground or in pots.

While basil prefers a freedraining

soil, it doesn’t like dry

periods, especially when it is

establishing itself. Pinch out the

growing and flowering tips as the

plants begin to mature and plant

plenty – you can never have too

much pesto.

Look out for flavoursome Thai

basil. It’s a hot little number that

adds a real touch of the Orient to

Thai and Indian dishes. You will

find it in the herb aisle.

oN sAle Now!

TASTY: New courgettes can be sown and planted now.

4. Chilli and capsicum

Now is the absolute last chance

to get these in the ground. It’s

too late to sow seeds. Plants will

get cracking quickly as both

chilli and capsicums thrive

when the days are long and hot.

They require all-day sun so find

such a spot in the garden or an

appropriate container site. When

growing in pots, choose a good

quality vegetable mix, and a pot

at least 10 litres in capacity (think

kitchen bucket).

Strawberry or tomato food can

be added as a side-dressing, as

both trigger the flower growth

you need. However, they are

happy in a slightly acidic soil,

it just needs to be warm. Good

drainage is essential. If you are

going away for a few days, do not

be tempted to sit pots in saucers

of water, they hate wet feet.

5. Red sorrel

For something a little tangy

and bright to add to your

salad menu, consider growing

red sorrel. It’s a low-growing

perennial leafy green that has

a slightly bitter flavour, not

dissimilar to rocket. Seeds can

be sown now, and plants will be

available in the herb section of

garden centres. It’s happy to grow

in both sun or part shade and is

shallow-rooted, which makes it

a good option for tubs, planters

and window boxes. A welcome

and colourful addition to a mixed

leaf salad, this often overlooked

plant is worth planting for looks

alone.

6. Spring onions

One of the easiest crops to

grow, spring onions are robust

and reliable greens, which grow

in even the smallest pocket of

earth – be it in bucket, patio tub

or garden. Seedlings are your

best bet. Either plant the entire

cell into one hole or separate

out the individual seedlings and

plant one by one. Aim to plant

them a little deeper, rather than

shallower, so they can anchor

themselves into the ground.

Allow three to four fingers’

distance between each plant.

Look out for the red-stemmed

variety, which looks fabulous and

has a slightly sharper taste.

7. Frilly lettuce

The hottest months of the

year are conducive to summer

salads and the best and toughest

lettuces to plant now are frilly

types and cos. Both can cope

with intermittent watering (if you

are away for a few days) and have

a more robust growth habit than

hearting lettuces. Best to hold

off planting or sowing hearting

lettuces until the soil cools down

a smidge, in a month or two. The

frilly and gem types of lettuce are

great options for tubs and buckets

and, as both are perpetual, you

can harvest them leaf by leaf,

which makes them ideal for the

lunchtime wrap. Seeds can be

sown in the ground or look for

seedlings, of which there are

plenty around.

8. Vietnamese mint

This hardy perennial herb,

salad green and condiment is a

ripper to plant out now. Each leaf

is packed with a spicy flavour

that resembles a combination of

coriander, chilli and kaffir lime

leaf. Being evergreen just adds to

its appeal and, even better, it is

as tough as old boots, surviving

on very little care and attention.

Keep the foliage coming by

planting in a sunny spot and

apply a general garden fertiliser

in spring and autumn. A regular

haircut will keep a fresh supply of

foliage.

Mazda6 Takami a

genuine sports sedan

I’VE OWNED a long

succession of sport sedans,

there’s something about

the concept which really

appeals to me.

One of them was a 1970s

Mazda 808, a conventional

four-cylinder car which

shared its body shell with

the rotary-engined RX3.

My 808 was warmed a little,

which is why I considered

it to be a sports sedan,

it had a mild camshaft,

extractors and a carburettor

re-jetted to get more

fuel into the engine. It was

a cool car and one which I

enjoyed immensely, however,

I always hankered after

a rotary and after a while

the 808 was sold.

With changing fortunes,

that was the only Mazda

I ever owned, unless you

take into account the

investment I’ve made keeping

my son’s RX7 mobile.

Today, Mazda doesn’t

really classify its Mazda6 as

a sports sedan, it is a sedan

(and wagon), but it fits into

the mainstream, albeit a

purposeful car in the first

instance. However, there is

something about the new

Mazda6 range that is different

to what we have seen in

the past. The range-topping

Takami has a turbocharger

attached to the 2.5-litre

four-cylinder engine, bearing

in mind, though, the

normally-aspirated Mazda6

is still in the books and it is

the solid seller it has always

been.

The Takami, though, is a

step above that, the turbo

boost adds around 30kW

and 168Nm above the

standard outputs, its power

and torque figures register

at 170kW and 420Nm, the

latter available from just

2000rpm. It’s only a low

pressure boost, but it is

enough to provide stimulating

performance and it

does so in an understated

way. The Mazda6 as a

series is a car which today

sits on the outer periphery

of the luxury car class, yet

its price is still the bargain

which lures buyers.

The Takami sits at

$56,995, while the range

starts at $45,995. Take into

account, too, that there are

also diesel options.

As with all the series, the

Takami drives through a

traditional six-speed automatic

transmission; other

than a driver-selectable

sport mode and paddleshifters,

the transmission

is pretty much standard

fare. I like that, there are no

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

MAZDA6 TAKAMI: Powerful, turbocharged engine.

surprises and no gimmicks,

just clever engineering that

still provides spirited performance

and ease of use

amidst the challenges of

our daily commute.

When given some

freedom, the engine

develops a moderate

thunder from under the

bonnet, it’s not loud, but it

is a throb which lets you

know the turbo is boosting

well and acceleration is

being ushered in vividly.

The Takami will reach

100km/h from standstill

in 8.1sec, and will lunge

quickly through a highway

overtake (80km/h to

120km/h in 5.5sec).

• Price – Mazda6

Takami, $56,995

• Dimensions –

Length, 4865mm;

width, 1840mm;

height, 1450mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,

2488cc,

170kW, 420Nm, sixspeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.1sec

• Fuel usage –

7.6l/100km

I didn’t use sport mode

often, the Takami is still

very responsive in normal

mode and has an instant

feel beneath the accelerator.

There are many quicker

sedans of this type, but for

my money there are few

that are more civilised nor

refined. That is a Mazda

strength, and if you look

at any model out of the

Mazda stable today, you

will find a huge emphasis

on build quality and

sophistication.

One of the things

that does need to be

remembered if you look

at the Takami as a sport

sedan, is that drive goes

to the road through the

front wheels. In a perfect

world, my definition of the

sport concept is rear-drive,

but the Takami needn’t

be discounted, it has

fabulous handling, and a

balance between power and

handling that is perfectly

matched.

Of course, the Mazda6

has a fully independent

front-strut/rear-multilink

suspension, and the

spring and damper rates

are set for a quality ride

with just moderate firming.

That doesn’t compromise

handling when those tricky

corners arrive. At just 1.4m

tall, the Mazda6 sits low

and, therefore, gravitational

force over the suspension

isn’t huge, there is little

body lean and suspension

control, and balance, is

beautifully engineered.

I took the test car on a

Scenic Highway 72 loop,

thoroughly enjoying its

precision in the corners

and quiet highway motion.

The evaluation car was

trimmed in white leather,

with that you get a feeling

of absolute opulence.

There’s a high specification

level as can be expected

in a $57k car, but it’s the

myriad of little things that

combine in the Mazda6 to

give you that special car

feeling.

If you think the turbocharger

is going to burn

through your fuel, and

money, unnecessarily,

that’s not the case. Mazda

claim a 7.6-litre per 100km

(37mpg) combined cycle

fuel usage rating for the

Takami. The evaluation

car’s trip computer

was constantly listing a

9l/100km (31mpg) average

figure, along with

a 5l/100km (56mpg)

instantaneous readout at

100km/h (engine speed

1900rpm).

These are good figures

that combine to provide a

very satisfying drive.

The Takami is certainly

my kind of car; if finances

allowed, it may well have

been the model that gets

me into my second Mazda.

FIGHTING

IRISH:

Notre

Dame are

the third

ranked

team

coming

into the

college

football

playoffs. ​

Helping top US college

athletes go professional

• By Gordon Findlater

THE UNITED States college

football season is about to reach

its climax.

On December 30, undefeated

Notre Dame play Clemson for a

spot in the championship final.

And surprisingly Notre Dame

have a Christchurch connection.

In August, James Biddick

started his role as student athlete

career development program

manager at the University of

Notre Dame.

The former Canterbury

hockey and age group cricket

rep decided he wanted to help

people and work in sports after

he lost interest in working as a

lawyer at Russell McVeagh in

Auckland.

The 36-year-old’s day-to-day

activities now involve managing

720 student athletes across about

20 sports. Biddick’s job is to

guide high profile athletes who

have the end goal of playing

professionally in the NBA, NFL,

NHL or MLB.

“I think the Kiwi attitude

comes in handy there. One,

because I don’t know a lot of

these guys. People are very

passionate about these players,

but they’re 18, 19, 20-yearold

kids in my eyes. Before

I got there, I couldn’t name

one football player, which is

probably a good thing because

I’m there to help them and see

them as a person,” said Biddick.

While he has rubbed

shoulders with many famous

professional athletes in the US,

Biddick still hasn’t crossed paths

with one he would be star struck

by.

The only person I think I’d

get excited or nervous to meet

would be Steven Adams.”

He says meeting Adams

would complete his list of the

big three names he has wanted

to meet since moving to the US.

While studying for a Master of

Sports Administration degree

at Ohio University, Biddick was

able to meet Leigh Steinberg, the

inspiration behind the film Jerry

Maguire, and Maurice Clarett,

RUBBING SHOULDERS: James Biddick met former Ohio

State star running back Maurice Clarett.

a former college football star

who spent time in prison before

becoming a public speaker.

Biddick is currently in

Christchurch visiting family.

When he heads back to Notre

Dame later this week, he will

return for one of the biggest

days on the college football

calendar. About 80,000 people

will cram into AT&T Stadium in

Arlington, Texas, to watch Notre

Dame clash with Clemson in

the Cutton Classic. Notre Dame

are undefeated in 12 games this

year. Their home games attract

about 80,000 fans to each match.

“It’s unlike anything I’ve ever

seen . . . I’ve been to the Rugby

World Cup final in 2011, but

it kind of dwarfs that because

of everything going on outside

the game. There’s obviously a

football game going on, which

everyone is passionate about,

but there’s the band, there’s the

cheerleaders and the tailgating,”

said Biddick.

Tailgating is a social event

held around the open tailgate of

a vehicle. Tailgate parties usually

involve drinking and grilled

food and are held in the parking

lots at stadiums before games.

“Someone estimated they

sometimes have around

200,000-300,000 people

tailgating outside the ground,”

said Biddick.

There’s such a passion

towards the college you went

to. We don’t have that in New

Zealand, maybe your high

school you feel an attachment to

but definitely not university, it’s

so passionate.”

HAYDEN Paddon’s frustrating

situation with Hyundai which

has seen him snubbed in 2019

in favour of the return of former

multiple time world champion

Sebastian Loeb should come

with a silver lining for the sport

in New Zealand.

Paddon’s situation is the latest

kick in the teeth for rally fans.

It only adds insult to injury

over the fact we haven’t had an

event on the WRC calendar

since 2012.

However, there is one positive

for the sport despite these two

big blows. The New Zealand

Rally Championship appears to

be as strong as it has been in a

long time with even Australia’s

top talents heading across the

ditch to fine tune their craft.

Long gone are the days of the

1990s and early 2000s when the

likes of Possum Bourne would

go to Australia or compete in

the Asia Pacific series to push

forward their names – both

competitions appear to be dead

in the water when you look at

the number of entrants in recent

years.

Most events in the Australian

Rally Championship this year

Talented Russian to join

Wildcats next season

THE CANTERBURY Wildcats

have acquired the services

of Russian forward Marita

Davydova (right) for next year’s

national women’s basketball

championship.

Davydova is expected to

arrive in Christchurch in March

ahead of the season which starts

in May.

She has represented her

country on numerous occasions.

In 2010, she played at the FIBA

under-17 world championship

in France and then represented

Russia at the under-18

and under-20 European

championships.

The 196cm forward went

to Moscow State Agriculture

Academy, then transferred to

Florida International University

for her final two years of college.

She played 61 games over two

seasons with FIU, averaging 10.8

points and 9.2 rebounds a game.

Since graduating in

2015, Davydova has played

Paddon’s axing

silver lining for

New Zealand

had just 30 to 50 entrants.

Compare that to the NZ

championship which had 61

entrants at its least popular

event in the Coromandel and

150 at the most popular event in

Otago.

With Paddon set to compete

in at least a healthy chunk of

the 2019 season, the time to let

the world know that the NZ

championship is the best in the

Southern Hemisphere is now.

How do we go about it?

The simple answer with motorsport

is usually money.

There needs to be a visible

pathway in the championship

for those wanting to go onto the

world stage. We’ve had it in the

past with the Pirelli Star Driver

programme which helped open

the door for Paddon.With the

best drivers in not just New Zealand

but Australasia competing

here there’s every reason teams

in Europe should be taking

notice of our championship.

Paddon may be off the world

stage for now in spite of a

limited 2018 campaign, but let’s

make the most of what he’s done

for the sport as a whole on home

shores.

professionally in several

countries including Spain,

Russia and Ecuador.

The Wildcats will play

three games over the

opening weekend of the

competition from May 10-12

in Christchurch. Then the six

teams will play a minimum

of three home games in the

10-game regular season. The

competition will reach its

climax with a finals weekend in

Auckland from July 4-6.

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 sments 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 themselves 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.”

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

planned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jones 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 annual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments are 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 apartments suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

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

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

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 this stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting more 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

be l oming.

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 is scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to 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

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GREENDALE SCHOOL pupils

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

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

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

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

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

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 Winder has b en a butcher

Mayor Lianne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’s submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l over recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

REDEVELOPMENT work is underway at

the Hornby WMC with seemingly next to

no impact on general club business.

Especially so when you look at the club

entertainment calendar.

2019 has some great acts secured

starting with celebrated international

singer-songwriter Sharon O’Neill.

Sharon is touring in the New Year with

only one Christchurch appearance. She

plays at the club on Sunday 17th February

where she will be showcasing ‘the songs

and their stories’ with a live 9 piece band.

2pm start. Tickets $69.
