Good news on Megan’s health

• By Julia Evans

Donation presented to surf

club 45 years after rescue

• By Sophie Cornish

FORTY-FIVE YEARS ago

Leonie Dunstan was rescued by

surf life savers from a potential

deadly rip at Waimairi Beach.

Now she and husband Bruce,

who was also in the water on that

hot December 1973 day, have

paid the club back.

The Dunstans, now in their

70s, have donated $2000 to the

Waimairi Beach Surf Life Saving

Club. They gave a smaller donation

to the club in the days after

the rescue.

“We are thinking about our

wills and are in a position to

recognise some organisations we

have been part of over the years

or who have helped us in some

way. So, we were able to make a

more significant donation,” said

Mr Dunstan.

The Dunstans remember the

day vividly.

Mr Dunstan managed to get

out of the rip and got to shore.

“I looked back and Leonie

was going further out with her

arm up in the air, signalling difficulty,”

he said this week.

Said Mrs Dunstan: “I felt like

I was in a tumble-dryer. Being

so short, I couldn’t touch the

ground. I came up for air once,

and then I went under again.

It was like being in a washing

machine.”

Mr Dunstan said he knew he

had to get help.

“I knew I wasn’t the person to

Two lifeguards went out and

rescued Mrs Dunstan, using a

Said Mrs Dunstan: “We lay on

the beach for a few hours, reflecting

on our close call. As parents

of young kids you think ‘gee, that

would of been awful.’ We don’t

often talk about it, but I feel quite

emotional talking about it now.’’

The day was a busy one for

lifeguards – about 30 people were

rescued from the rip.

“Luckily, it was quite timely.

We needed these new radios,

which are about $1000 each.

The donation was “really

pleasing and humbling.”

Demolition under way

on remaining stands

Work has started on removing

the last two stands at Lancaster

Park, which will take 10 to 12

months. The demolition was

expected to cost $20 million,

but is now forecast to cost $12

million with two per cent of

the rubble expected to go to

landfill.

People heading to the Sparks

concert in North Hagley Park

on February 16 will be able

to get a free bus ride home.

There will be 28 buses free for

the public to use on the night,

which will start departing

when the fireworks are finished.

Buses leaving from Harper

Halswell, Sheffield Cres and

A new electrothermal weed

control tool, which sends

electrothermal targets weeds

Community

service for

‘drown him’

offender

• By Sophie Cornish

SEVENTY HOURS of community

service will be carried out by one

of the offenders found guilty in

the highly-publicised Rolleston

“drown him” case.

Judge Stephen O’Driscoll approved

a plan for one offender’s

punishment on Tuesday, which

was formed at a family group

conference.

In December, following a twoday

Youth Court hearing, two

17-year-olds were found guilty of

assault with intent to injure.

They were 16 at the time of

the attack, in November 2016,

where the 16-year-old victim was

confronted by a group of youths in

Tennyson St, Rolleston, after the

annual fireworks event.

It was alleged the victim was

assaulted and pushed into a water

race, where he had his head held

under water while other youths

yelled “drown him.”

At the sentencing on Tuesday,

the other offender was remanded

on bail and will reappear before

Judge O’Driscoll on March 5.

An agreement over punishment

was not reached at the family

group conference.

Said Sam: “I was really

Sam ran to a nearby house

called.

The robber, described as Polynesian

People’s Choice targets water vote

LABOUR-ALIGNED People’s

by getting the water vote.

An internal People’s Choice

campaign.

Of the 16 city councillors

seven, Yani Johanson, Phil Clearwater,

Glen Livingstone, Anne

Galloway, Jimmy Chen, Pauline

Cotter and Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner, are part of People’s

Choice.

On ECan, its chairman Steve

Lowndes and councillors Cynthia

Roberts and Lan Pham run

under People’s Choice.

People’s Choice chairman Keir

Leslie and Cr Turner would not

discuss the survey as it was an

internal party document.

High-profile city councillor

Jamie Gough, who runs under

the centre-right, pro-business

group Independent Citizens,

said it was “good” the survey

highlighted issues Christchurch

residents cared about.

But he said the group’s politics

was based on caucusing and its

decision-making came from

Wellington, not Christchurch.

“That sort of governance can be

quite damaging,”

Cr Gough is considering

challenging Lianne Dalziel for

mayoralty and wants more commercial

understanding and focus

around the council table.

“What I’ve always been proud

about through Independent

Citizens is they’ll never tell me

how to vote,” Cr Gough said.

The biggest issue with People’s

Choice is its block voting, he said.

“A good example where they

block voted was to refuse to

consider revaluing our assets,” Cr

Gough said.

“It’s damaging to Christchurch

if not negligent to makes those

sorts of calls for ideological

reasons.”

However, Mr Leslie said while

all People’s Choice candidates had

the same values, they all had separate

ways of dealing with issues.

“All our councillors take an independent

approach. They don’t

all sing in unison, but they have

the same values.”

Political scientist Bronwyn

Hayward said it was a “fairly

standard” political survey used

during campaigns.

Dr Hayward said voters cared a

lot less about political leaning in

local government.

“Often voters don’t care, if

Drink driving excuses and why they

A United States woman

who said she failed

a drink driving test

because she had been

went viral last month.

So what excuses do

reports

EXCUSES, DENIAL, “I’ve only

had a couple” and “go do some

real policing.”

After three years on the team

which targets

alcohol and

drivers,

Sergeant Stu

Martindale has

heard it all.

The most

we always ask: ‘How big were

the drinks? Were they crates or

kegs?’” he says.

It’s an age-old classic veteran

Sergeant Colin Stewart has also

heard many times.

“You have to think, were they

drinking out of buckets?” he said.

Another excuse when police

smell alcohol from a driver’s

breath is they have been eating

liqueur chocolates.

“I don’t think they actually

have any alcohol in them, it’s just

the flavouring,” Sergeant Martindale

said.

When one such driver

went to court on his drink

driving charge, he changed his

tune - slightly. “He said that he’d

been eating trifle with brandy in

it.”

A woman told him she had

alcohol on her breath because she

had been drinking Listerine.

“But it actually transpired this

lady was addicted to drinking

mouthwash. She was drinking it

in such volumes, it was enough to

show in our evidential test.”

Another woman said she had

been eating Kurols, a mentholated

throat lozenge.

“To eat the amount you would

need to fail a breath test, you

would be physically sick before

you were able to do that,” he said.

Many drivers of course say they

they are sprung then question the

validly of the breath test.

“All our devices are calibrated

annually, by a specialist. The

modern machines always purge

themselves of any traces of alcohol

before any test,” said Sergeant

Martindale.

Many people make a stupid

excuse initially, then realise how

The “two drinks” excuse comes

from a “major misconception”

with our legal drink driving

“When the lower limit was introduced,

it suggested a couple of

drinks, but that is one standard

drink per hour with food and the

theory is that every person is the

“Every person is different, for

some people two drinks will

other people the effect could be

Factors which play a role in

this include age, body size, your

body’s chemical imbalance at the

time, how much sleep a person

has had and how fit or unfit they

are.

“Ultimately

the biggest message

is if you

think you are

going to drink

alcohol, find a

sober driver or

an alternative

way home,” said

Sergeant Martindale.

The worst

excuse police

hear is people

telling them to

“go and do some

real policing

and catch some

criminals,” he

said.

Sergeant Martindale believes

for every drink driver caught,

one innocent life has been saved

on the roads.

In 2011, prominent West Coast

lawyer Doug Taffs put coins in

his mouth to try and outwit a

breath alcohol test.

The method comes from an

old wives’ tale that holding a

penny in your mouth can interfere

with your saliva’s composition.

The zinc and copper of the

penny supposedly neutralises or

masks the actual level of alcohol

by inducing a chemical reaction

or coating the inside of the

mouth.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills has

heard of the urban legend but has

never seen it work.

“It didn’t work for the guy I

was dealing with a long time ago.

He put the coins in his mouth

right in front of me.”

Senior Sergeant Stills has seen

people take deep breaths, in an

effort to control their breathing.

“I’ve never seen anything yet

that has successfully overcome

the machines.

People will tend to minimise

what they have drunk and often

people might stall for time,

thinking time will be their

saviour. But it’s not, sometimes

stalling for time could show up a

higher reading.”

Once, Senior Sergeant Stills

WHAT ARE THE LIMITS?

•From December 2014,

the alcohol limit for

drivers 20 years old and

older lowered from

400mcg of alcohol per

litre of breath to 250mcg.

The blood alcohol limit

lowered from 80mg of

alcohol per 100ml of

blood (0.08), to 50mg

(0.05).

•For drivers under 20, the

limit is zero.

•Guidance from the

Institute of Environmental

Science and Research

(ESR) indicates that most

adults may be able to

drink two standard drinks

over two hours and are

likely to remain under the

drink-driving limits for

adults.

•A standard drink

contains 10g of pure

alcohol. This is about

330ml of beer, 100ml of

wine or 30ml of straight

spirits.

$1m plan

to heat pool

• By Julia Evans

USING WASTEWATER to heat

the new Linwood Pool could cost

ratepayers an extra $1 million.

A report will be considered by

the city council’s new finance and

performance committee today,

which recommends increasing

the complex’s budget from $21

million to $22 million to account

for wastewater heating costs.

Buildings in Australia, Canada,

France and Hungary use wastewater

running underground as

a heat source. However, the Linwood

Pool would be the first of

its kind in New Zealand. It is also

expected to reduce the complex’s

operational costs by $41,500 a

year, paying the additional capital

back over 17-20 years. The city

council will also seek third party

funding for the system.

Initial concepts show the facility

could include a lane pool,

learn-to-swim pool, toddler pool

and family spa, plus two tennis

and two basketball courts within

the site. The city council will put

the plans out for public feedback

in April.

The complex will be built on

the corner of Linwood Ave and

Smith St, at the eastern end of

Linwood Park. It is expected to

open in late 2021.

this year’s

in Ashburton and Timaru.

Now, retired from his job as an

english teacher, Roger he has decided

to get back into running.

He enjoys running around the streets

near where he lives and often goes to

Les Mills gym also to stay in shape.

“I like the City2Surf because it is an

easy distances and it’s a popular run to

take part in.”

James Ferguson,

32, Harewood

James will take on

the 14km run in this

year’s City2Surf.

It will be his first

time doing the event

and admits he’s a

“first time runner,” opting to keep fit

through rugby and other sport.

The event will help him prepare for

more running later in the year when

he takes on the Buller Gorge halfmarathon

and the Saint Clair Vineyard

half marathon in Blenheim.

He is enjoying his training –

somewhat.

“It’s a fair distance the 14km, but I’ve

got get fit somehow.”

Before and after work a couple of

times a week Mr Ferguson has been

challenging himself run distances

between 10km and 14km.

He will accompanied by a group of

with Les Mills

friends who will also run in the event

next month.

Pauline De Wit,

66, Woolston

Pauline isn’t keen

to slow down anytime

soon.

Previously, she

has run the 6km in

the City2Surf but

next month she decided to “push the

boat out” and do the 14km run.

“I felt I could have gone further

so I am keen to try the 14km. I

have seen the wonderful sense of

achievement gained from an event

such as this and wanted to be part of

it . . . I am getting older and I want to

achieve something like this before age

takes me over.”

Pauline has been training with her

friend Jill, who she has done the event

with before.

The pair enjoy after-work walks

around the Burwood Wetlands.

The Wetlands takes approximately

40 minutes, plus walks at the weekend

along the Heathcote river. Also due to

the hot weather I have been enjoying

swimming at Corsair Bay, Magazine

Bay and at Sumner.”

On Pauline’s bucket-list of

achievements is the Saint Claire

Vineyard half marathon.

Fun run to benefit charity hospital

HELPING: The Canterbury Charity Hospital Trust is

the partner charity for the City2Surf.

SINCE 2007, the City2Surf’s

partner charity has been

providing free healthcare to

Cantabrians in need.

The Canterbury Charity

Hospital Trust provides free

day surgery, medical treatments,

dentistry, oral surgery

and counselling services.

It has had more than

15,000 patient visits since it

first opened in 2007.

Over the years, more than

300 doctors, nurses, dentists,

health professionals and

public-spirited people have

volunteered their time and

services.

Celebrating its 45 th year,

City2Surf is being held on

March 24.

Said Charity Hospital fundraising

co-ordinator Rosie

Graham: “The City2Surf is a

great opportunity to not only

increase the profile of the

Charity Hospital as a local

Canterbury charity but also

be involved with a massive

community event which last

year attracted around 12,000

entries.”

“We also like the team

aspect of the event as we are

very much a team-based

charity with over 300 volunteers

all playing a part in providing

our free services. And

we really appreciate that Star

Media chose us as the charity

for this major event.”

The hospital, which is

unique in New Zealand, frequently

updates it’s services,

depending on the need.

This currently includes

include colonoscopy, gynaecology

and women’s health,

general surgery (abdominal,

rectal), oral surgery and

dentistry, counselling

(self-referral), orthopaedics

(upper and lower limb) and

cataracts.

The Trust does not receive

any Government funding

and relies on fundraising

events, donations, charitable

organisations and bequests

to raise the funds required to

run its free services.

Simon Moore

Murders, pubs, V8s and a quarry

Vocal opponent of

the Fulton Hogan

quarry near Weedons

Simon Moore has seen

the lowest society has

to offer. The 56-year-old

former police detective

talks to Anan Zaki

about the many hats

he’s worn over the years

Tell me a bit about your life

outside of campaigning against

the proposed quarry near

Weedons?

I’m a company director in

an immigration company. So

I’m a licensed immigration

adviser. I’ve been doing that

with this company [e-Migration]

since 2005 and we’re based in

Burnside.

Other things I’m involved in –

I’m the president of the Waitaha

Swim Club in Hornby and I’m

a board member of Swimming

Canterbury West Coast.

What does your job as an

immigration adviser involve?

We’re licensed to give

immigration advice on New

Zealand immigration. So we

don’t do outward or other

countries.

Moore with his V8 Ford Mustang and his dog Bart.

Our client base goes from

people wanting to visit New

Zealand right through to

assisting companies to get visas

for their staff.

You used to be a police

officer, when did you serve

and what was your role?

I was a detective, and when I

left the police I was a detective

sergeant based in Christchurch

for most of the time. I served

between 1983 and 1999.

What made you want to

become a police officer?

It was one of those boyhood

things. I had worked on dairy

farms and I didn’t mind that.

My uncle was a policeman in

Oamaru and just talking to him

and looking at career options,

I decided to join the police. I

worked full time on dairy farms

for about 18 months before I was

accepted into the police at 20.

What were some of the

notable cases that you worked

on?

Kirsty Bentley was the last one

I worked on. That’s still in the

newspapers. It’s a cold case now. I

was brought in after her body was

found up in the Rakaia Gorge. I

was brought into review that part

of the investigation, which meant

that I lived in Methven for about

two months.

Was it a difficult time with the

attention on the case?

It was intense, but it was also

disappointing that we couldn’t

resolve that for the family. About

a year or so before that I was

involved in the [Marlborough]

Sounds homicides as well and I

lived in Blenheim for six months

and hardly got a day off. That’s

still controversial and still people

ask me about that. It never leaves

you, even though you left the

police in 1999. People still want

to know about both those cases

because there was a lot of public

interest in them.

The Star Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Thursday February 7 2019 13

– life isn’t quiet for former cop

Do you believe justice was

served in the Sounds murders?

Yeah I do, no doubt at all.

I’ve heard all the theories, I’ve

heard everything. We lived and

breathed that [investigation] for

six months, it was a huge amount

of time and in those six months I

think I got two or three weekends

off. We were working 14-15 hours

a day. So if anyone thinks there

wasn’t a lot of work put into that

they’re very wrong.

Did you enjoy police work?

Of course. You’ve got to be

extremely dedicated and working

on an inquiry, whether it would

be Blenheim or Ashburton, it

takes you away from your home

and your family. I didn’t have

children at that stage, but I was

working with guys that did. It’s

hell of a hard on them and I don’t

think people realise that.

Why did you leave the police?

In 16 years I saw a lot of things

and I guess that while I was

still young enough, I thought I

had done a lot in the police and

I felt it was time for a change

in scenery so I ended up being

a publican. I had the Madeira

Hotel in Akaroa for a couple of

years.

So you became a publican,

that’s a bit of a change isn’t it?

HIGH PROFILE: Former detective Simon Moore worked on cases such as the Marlborough

Sounds murders of Ben Smart and Olivia Hope, and the murder of Ashburton schoolgirl Kirsty

Bentley.

The thing about the police is

that it can become very negative.

A lot of the time you’re dealing

with the very negative side of society

and you’re seeing tragedies.

You’re having to tell people that

their loved ones have been killed

and over 16 years that can take its

toll. People that have been in the

police for 30-40 years, well they

have got my admiration. They

deserve a medal. The thing about

becoming a publican is that I saw

a slightly different side to people.

Some good and some bad, but the

police career gives you a pretty

good grounding to deal with people.

You get to know a lot about

people in the police. It gives you a

really good grounding to understand

how people work and those

connections you make in the police

are lifelong connections. My

business partner [at e-Migration]

is an ex-police officer. Immigration

officers are ex-police officers,

you bump into them all the time

and they all remember you.

What were some highlights of

being a publican in Akaroa?

I knew what to expect from

people who couldn’t handle their

alcohol because I’ve dealt with

that plenty of times. But Akaroa

itself was a fantastic place to live.

A small population of locals, but

a huge population of Cantabrians

with holiday homes. So on the

weekends the place would just

swell with people from Christchurch

and when they went away it

was just your local people. I could

still be living there, but I was

made an offer for the pub and

I couldn’t refuse it. It’s bloody

hard work being a publican.

Particularly in a small town that

increases five times in size in the

weekends. Trying to find staff,

trying to please everybody and

keep within the law making sure

people aren’t drink driving, you

take that responsibility quite

heavily. As soon as I got there I

bought a courtesy van so that we

could get people home safely. To

be honest at the start there was a

bit of a sideways look from those

people who were perhaps a little

wayward of the law. But when

they found out I was there as a

publican and not a policeman it

was all good. •Turn to page 14

Moore takes on next challenge

•From page 13

Was it after that you became

an immigration adviser?

After two years of living and

breathing [being a publican]

you need a bit of time out and I

thought I’d have a few months

off. But I got to about six weeks

and I was so bored, I saw an ad in

the paper for what they used to

call an immigration consultant

with a big company. I applied for

it and the guy from Wellington

who interviewed me was an

ex-cop, so I got the job. I started

off as a consultant for them for

about six months and after the

six months we got the business

running so well that they decided

to start a branch, I ran that for

a couple of years and went back

to becoming a publican again in

Hanmer Springs of all places.

Where in New Zealand are

you originally from?

Born and bred in Christchurch.

The suburb I was brought up

was in Bishopdale, went to

Christchurch Boys’ High School.

I lived two years in Timaru after

I left the police. When I came

back from Timaru, I lived in

that Bishopdale area again and

then Templeton in the early

1990s because I was working

in the Hornby police station as

detective. I threw my name in

the hat for a detective sergeant’s

role after just having moved to

Templeton and I got that role and

it was in New Brighton. I couldn’t

turn the job down because I put

my name in the hat, so I had

to commute backwards and

forwards everyday.

You own a 2010 Ford

Mustang, have you always been

into performance cars?

Yeah I am, I’ve always been a

V8 man really. I’ve always liked

those classic V8s and particularly

Mustang, out of the lot of them.

I was lucky enough to be able to

buy one in 2017. I bought it in

What spurred you onto

advocating for something like

the proposed quarry?

I’ve advocated for things all

my life if you look at the police

side of it. The thing that got me

annoyed and concerned is that

when I bought at Weedons, it

was surrounded by farms and

horse training stables. When we

went there we knew we would

get planes going overhead. We

accepted that. We knew Ruapuna

Park was not far away and when

the north east wind is blowing

and they’ve got events there we

can hear them quite clearly. We

knew that when we moved in

there.

We’ve got prisons around

us, halfway houses for youth

offenders, we knew all that

when we moved in and we

accepted that. But we never had

a quarry. I never in my wildest

dreams thought that they

would contemplate putting a

quarry between Templeton and

Weedons. The thing that disturbs

me the most is the more I look

into this the more I can see that

we are so far behind the rest of

the world. India and Pakistan,

for example, have 1km setback

rules. We don’t have anything

like that.

Vittoria’s age of mischief

I HOPE everyone has enjoyed

their Waitangi Day break – our

only truly national holiday.

That is until we all realise that a

national holiday in winter – like,

say, for Matariki – would actually

be quite nice.

I’ve lost my mouse. My

computer mouse that is. Well, I

say ‘I lost it’, but really someone

small and cute found it, took it,

and put it somewhere safe. Or

under something. Or behind

something. Or in something.

I mean, she can’t eat it, I

don’t think. Turn your back to

Vittoria’s actions and she’ll get up

to some sort of mischief without

fail. Age and stage, right?

Either way, it’s made writing

this slightly difficult. I use

a laptop and am the kind of

person who can accidently wipe

his computer by touching that

bloody mouse pad. Just got to

persist and deal without it for

now.

That’s one way to remind me

to be on my toes as to things

around Vittoria. Considering

her mischief abilities, I’m equally

impressed by Laura’s and my

persistence in keeping all her

pyjamas, bibs and socks neatly

folded and stacked on a shelf in

direct line of fire. I think we’ve

both re-folded and re-stacked

GUILTY: Vittoria caught in

the act of mischief.

that shelf 100 times. She’ll grow

out of it eventually, either that

or we’ll buy another drawer or

something.

It’s hilarious when you catch

her in the act of mischief, she

usually shoots over a sly look

while slowly continuing to do

whatever it is you’re telling her

‘no’ about.

VITTORIA

& Matt

If you catch her “borrowing”

something, she generally giggles,

tries to hide it behind herself and

then runs off. Sometimes too

fast and she falls over, making it

funnier. Or immediately sadder.

She is so adorable that it’s hard

to be angry mostly. Unless it’s the

10th time that day. Then it’s time

for a recharging cuppa.

Beyond renewed assaults

on folded clothing, this week

also saw Vittoria and I start

at her first toddler-focussed

activity, Shimmy Shakers, at the

Phillipstown Community Hub

on Monday. She really enjoyed

herself, I could tell because even

though she abandoned me to go

play with the cupboards with a

new friend as it started, she came

back all smiles soon after and

stayed for the rest.

THOUSANDS OF fish have

been moved in the Heathcote

River as work continues to

reduce its risk of flooding.

In the three months to

January 24, 3623 fish were

moved upstream, including 531

shortfin eels, 76 longfin eels, 153

whitebait, 2717 common and

giant bullies and three black

flounders.

About 20,000 tonnes of

sediment has been removed

before more dredging begins

later in the year after the

whitebait spawning season.

The dredging work is being

carried out between Opawa

Rd and the Woolston Cut (an

engineered channel) under the

city council’s land drainage

recovery programme.

Stage one of the in-river

work – from Radley St to the

Woolston Barrage – has been

completed, with the barge due to

be removed this month.

Work is also well advanced

on stage two from Opawa Rd

to Radley St. Contractors will

Fish moved to start

flood reduction work

in Heathcote River

upstream of Radley St from

Clarendon Tce this month using

a long-reach excavator, operating

from the bank.

City council land drainage

manager Keith Davison said the

work is already having a positive

impact on the environment.

Dredging will restart on

June 1 from both sides of the

river – between Clarendon

and Richardson Tces – and is

expected to continue until later

this year. The river will be closed

to recreational use in the work

areas because of safety issues

and sediment controls.

Single-lane traffic controls will

also be introduced to manage

truck access. A final bank

tidy-up and landscaping will be

completed along Richardson

and Clarendon Tces following

the completion of the stage two

work, with planting in May-June

Planning and design for the

from Beckford to Opawa Rds

is under way, with on-site work

expected to start later this year.

Water: Our ‘precious resource’

WHAT HAPPENS when a

community group challenges a

resource consent through the

courts?

I guess the first thing that

happens is that costs can mount

very quickly and there is no

guarantee that they will recover

those costs if the challenge is

successful.

City councillors have been

watching with interest the action

taken against the Environment

Canterbury decision to allow the

transfer of old consents to take

water to a new owner for a new

purpose – water bottling.

Leaving aside all of the

sustainability issues around

producing thousands of plastic

bottles every week, the water

allocation is exhausted in this

area, so new consents need to be

declined.

The question a lot of us are

asking is why it’s okay for

these consents to be soaked

up by simply purchasing the

land (at inflated prices due to

the consent), even though the

uses and quantum used are

completely different?

The community group won

the initial High Court hearing

on a preliminary legal question

of whether there was any need

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

to change the original resource

consents at all. The High Court

confirmed that either new or

varied resource consents to

take water for water bottling

had been needed. The consentholders

have now appealed that

preliminary legal question to the

Court of Appeal.

We believe the outcome of this

case is very important to the city

as a whole, and we are looking

at how we can support it. They

have crowd-sourced the amount

required to date, and will start

another campaign in a few

weeks. I support this approach.

However could we provide more

direct help? If the preliminary

decision of the High Court is

upheld, and the community

group then succeeds with its

main claim, it will help limit

water takes from the aquifers.

Our water is a precious

resource. It may not be owned by

anyone, but it belongs to us all.

Dalziel a question, email

Woolston village

upgrade criticised

• By Matt Slaughter

CONCERNS HAVE been raised

after a proposal to upgrade the

Woolston Village Centre was

green-lighted.

The decision was made at a

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board meeting on

Monday and the project will

now be brought to city council

for final sign-off. The project to

transform the centre, which runs

down Ferry Rd, will result in the

loss of 14 on-street car parks.

The original 2016 Woolston

Village Centre upgrade proposal,

which did not go ahead, would

have resulted in the removal of

48 on-street car parks.

In spite of the new plan reducing

this number, Woolston

Pharmacy owner Simon Payne

said business owners and shoppers

will still be worse off if these

parks are lost.

“It definitely is negative for our

customers. It will be negative for

the whole shopping area, really.”

“If you don’t have car parks

that are convenient, then people

are just going to drive on by.”

From a pharmacy’s point of view,

we get a lot of people who are

injured, immobile, or have low

mobility due to long-term health

conditions . . . it is very inconvenient

if they can’t park nearby

where they want to go.” ​

Mr Payne said a petition to

keep the car parks, started by the

pharmacy late last year, received

more than 1000 signatures in

one week.

The project will also involve

the planting of trees and plants

around the village, and new footpaths

and street furniture.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Brenda Lowe-Johnson said

she has concerns about the kauri

trees which would be planted.

“Kauris are a North Island

tree, they don’t belong to

the South Island and they don’t

grow here very well. I’m not very

happy about that either because

it’s a waste of money having

something that’s not going to

grow properly.”

The city council is expected

to decide in the next six weeks

whether the project will go

ahead.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

PEACH, APRICOT AND

BLUEBERRY COBBLER

Ingredients

Cobbler crust

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup rye flour

1/2 cup cornmeal

1 Tbsp baking powder

1 Tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 stick of very cold butter, cut

into bits and rechilled for 10min

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup mascarpone, plus more

for serving

Cobbler filling

3 peaches, pitted and sliced into

1cm wedges

2 apricots, pitted and sliced into

1cm wedges

1 cup blueberries

1 Tbsp sugar

1 Tbsp cornstarch

1 Tbsp cherry liqueur

Zest of one lemon

Pinch of freshly ground black

pepper (optional)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 190 deg C

with the baking rack positioned

in the middle. Butter and set

aside a baking dish.

In a large bowl, whisk together

the flours, cornmeal, baking

powder, sugar, and salt. Drop in

butter and using your fingertips,

toss the butter pieces with the

flour until coated. Rub the butter

into the dry ingredients until you

have small-sized pieces of butter

throughout.

In a small bowl, whisk together

the milk and the mascarpone

until well combined. Pour the

milk-mascarpone mixture over

the dry ingredients and mix with

a fork until you get a very soft

dough. At this point, you will

probably still have dry bits of

dough at the bottom of the bowl,

which you can incorporate using

your hands or a spatula.

Roll the dough out between

two pieces of parchment paper

until it’s roughly the shape and

size of your baking dish. Chill

the dough until ready to use –

while you prepare the fruit.

In a large bowl toss all the

filling ingredients and stir gently

to mix. Turn the fruit into the

buttered dish and top with the

biscuit dough. Using a small,

sharp knife, cut six slits in the

dough, just as you would for a

pie crust. Using the same knife or

a cookie cutter, cut a circle out of

the center of the dough. Bake the

cobbler 50-65min, or until the

top is puffed and golden brown

and the fruit is bubbling through

the center hold. Cool the cobbler

on a cooling rack for at least

30min before serving. Serve

warm or at room temperatures

with a dollop of mascarpone.

PORTERHOUSE WITH CAPSICUM, COURGETTES

Ingredients

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 Tbsp red wine vinegar

1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

1 Tbsp chopped oregano

Salt and freshly ground pepper

2 courgettes, sliced on the

diagonal 2cm thick

1 red onion, sliced 1cm thick

1 red sweet pointed capsicum,

cored and quartered

100-120g mushrooms, stemmed

400g asparagus

1 scallion, roots trimmed

2 porterhouse steaks, about

400g each

Directions

In a small

bowl, whisk

the olive oil

with the lemon

juice, red

wine vinegar,

mustard and

oregano and

season with salt

and pepper.

Transfer half

of the dressing

to a large

bowl. Add the

courgette, onion, capsicum,

mushrooms, asparagus and

scallion. Season the vegetables

with salt and pepper and toss.

In a perforated grill pan, grill

the vegetables over high heat,

tossing, until charred in spots.

Return to the bowl, add the

remaining dressing and toss.

Season the steaks generously

with salt and pepper. Grill the

steaks over high heat, turning

occasionally. Transfer the steaks

to a carving board and let rest

for 5min. Slice the meat from

the bones and serve with the

grilled vegetables.

CITY2SURF

WEEK 4: Upping the pace

This week we will step it up a bit more. The

beginners group will progress to the stage

that most of the walking is replaced by

slow jogging and the intermediate group

are starting to incorporate some efforts in

zone 2. Remember that zone 1 is perceived

as an easy effort which you can maintain

for very long periods of time. In zone 2

you will get slightly puffed but you can still

have a conversation. You go from jogging

in zone 1 to a proper running movement

in zone 2 with the main difference being

that zone 1 has a slower rhythm, staying

low to the ground where as zone 2 brings

extra spring in your step combined with

an increase in leg turnover (stride rate).

The intermediate group introduces zone 2

pace as 2 minute repetitions alternated by

2 minute easy jogging. Zone 2 to 3 will be

the recommended pace for the City to Surf

event for the intermediate group while the

beginners will mainly stay in zone 1 and 2.

The difference between walking and jogging

is not only decided by the rhythm of the

movement but also how and where you land

your feet. When jogging most efficiently

you land on your mid-foot under the centre

of gravity of the body, which, in the upright

position, is located in the pelvis just behind

the midline of the body. With a slight forward

lean of the body you can use gravity to pull

you forward while your legs keep you upright

and push you in a forward direction. Walking

is done in a more upright position and most

of us land on our heel first and roll over the

outside of our foot before pushing off with

our forefoot. It helps to keep your core

(lower abdomen, back, pelvis and hips) well

supported by pushing your pelvis slightly

forward. This will stop you from “sitting” and

over striding.

check with your GP.

TIP OF THE WEEK

There is no need to bring fluids with you during the

sessions as you are not exercising long and hard

enough to cause serious dehydration. Even on warm

(north-west) days it is sufficient to have a glass of

water or juice just before you go out. You can rehydrate

on your return home, again with water and/

or a glass of fruit juice. Taking fluids during exercise

is generally not required until you start to exceed 90

minutes on a normal day and 60 minutes on a hot

day (temperatures above 25 degrees).

Nine-wicket haul for

veteran paceman

• By Gordon Findlater

AGE IS NO barrier for

47-year-old Scott Inglis

who took a career best

9-49 for Burnside West

Christchurch University’s

premier side on Saturday.

Playing Riccarton

in the metro cricket

two-day premiership,

Jackson Latham took the

first wicket for BWCU.

However, the remainder of

the innings was dominated

by Inglis, who was

unplayable at times during

his 19.4 overs.

The right-arm quick

bowler puts his longevity

at premier level down to

a lack of injuries and his

work in the gym over

recent years.

“I do get quite sore,

though. I’m no good on

Tuesday, start to feel

better by training on

Thursday, and am good

to go by Saturday,” said

Inglis.

Inglis clean bowled two

of his victims on Saturday,

while seven dismissals

came from catches.

He is BWCU’s all-time

leading wicket-taker at

premier grade level with

well over 600 wickets.

Super Rugby time already

IT’S THE time of year

when we suddenly

remember while battling

a 30-plus deg C nor’west

day in early February that

Super Rugby starts next

week.

Finally, after years

of being subjected to

having our premier rugby

competition blasted upon

me while I’m at the peak

of enjoying a summer of

cricket, it’s even beginning

to feel like the norm – as

much as I hate to accept it.

I’m not sure why it’s

never felt normal – 1996

was the last time Super

Rugby started in March.

Seasonal gripe aside, the

biggest question going into

this season is will we show

up?

There’s no denying the

drop off in attendances for

Super Rugby, particularly

close to home in recent

years. We can debate

all day as to why. A tent

for a stadium, too many

overseas teams no one is

interested in, cold weather,

the examples go on.

This year has every

reason why we should be

turning out in droves.

CAMPAIGNER: Scott Inglis celebrated taking his

600th wicket for Burnside West Christchurch

University two years ago. On Saturday the 47-yearold

recorded his career best bowling figures.

It was a day to remember

for BWCU, with Liam

Winn scoring a century

to give his team a 130-run

advantage going into the

second day of the match on

Saturday. However, the day

belonged to Inglis.

The guys made a bit of

a fuss of it . . . we had a big

boozy one afterwards. I

was no good on Sunday,

especially after bowling 20

overs,” he said.

Inglis, who grew up

We’re going for three in

a row. Yes, the Crusaders

have more than truly

established themselves as

the dominant force they

were in the late 1990s and

2000s. However, if you

look at crowd numbers

from that era compared to

last year at Christchurch

Stadium (yes, Australasia’s

most successful sporting

franchise of the past

25 years can’t attract a

naming rights sponsor

for their fortress/tent this

season), it’s impossible to

argue against numbers

being down.

With the Rugby World

Cup coming later in the

year, there’s more on the

line. If Scott Robertson can

create history by becoming

the first coach to achieve a

Super Rugby three-peat, it

will give the NZRU every

reason to appoint him as

Steve Hansen’s successor.

Outside of the sabbatical

in Motueka, previously

played representative

cricket for Nelson, where

on debut he claimed the

wicket of former New

Zealand international

batsman Roger Twose.

He is now in his 20th

season with BWCU and

plans to retire at the end

of this season. Last year

he finished as the top

wicket-taker at the national

club championships in

Auckland.

gang, who will have orders

to sit out certain points

of the season, we will

have a competition with

fringe All Blacks looking

to push their case at every

opportunity.

But with all this in mind,

will we show up?

It’s also worth noting

there’s some big pros to the

rugby season starting in

February. The biggest one

is with the sun being out at

7.35pm, you are given the

illusion the competition

has opted to go for a fanfriendly,

day-time kick

off, rather than expecting

people to pay to show up

on a cold winter’s night,

instead of watching at

home on Sky.

My prediction for this

year is the Crusaders will

romp to a third straight

Super Rugby title while

most of us watch history

unfold at the local or from

the couch.

Coaching the All Blacks would lure

Robbie Deans is Super Rugby’s most successful head coach winning five titles with

the Crusaders between 2000 and 2008. Deans returned home last week during a

break in the Japanese Top League season. Gordon Findlater caught up with him

RUGBY FAMILY: The 2008 Super Rugby final – Deans was

carried off the field by Brad Thorn and Reuben Thorne in

his last game as coach of the Crusaders.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

COACHING THE All Blacks is

the only opportunity that would

lure Robbie Deans back to New

Zealand.

The former Crusaders and

Wallabies coach – who currently

coaches the Panasonic Wild

Knights in Japan – is back home

for the next month. However, with

no interest in a return to Super

Rugby there’s only one job that

would see his return home come

before retirement.

“I got no interest in living out

of a suitcase which is what Super

Rugby is essentially, it’s a lot of

travel. I was lucky enough to do

that for 12 years between managing

and coaching so I’ve had my

fill,” said Deans.

“That [All Blacks] would be the

only international job that would

be of interest if I was going to do

one again, but no it won’t happen.

There’s guys like Razor [Scott

Robertson] who have got the background

now.”

Deans spent time last week at

Crusaders training and caught

up with Robertson over a coffee.

While Deans may have a realist

approach to his chances of taking

the head coaching role of the All

Blacks when Steve Hanson finishes

up at the end of this year’s Rugby

World Cup, he would be open to

taking on an assistant or advisory

role for whoever gets the nod.

If Robertson is to take charge

there’s every chance Deans could

be someone to bring into the fold

given the pair’s relationship.

“Oh, look I’d be honoured if

someone like that thought I’d be

right for a role,” he said.

“I stay in touch with the Crusaders

and in particular the people,

that’s the nature of rugby. There’s a

lot of guys who are now coaching,

Brad Thorn, Gibbo [Daryl Gibson],

Aaron [Mauger] and Todd Blackadder,

I stay in touch with all of those

guys. The people who I’ve been

lucky enough to be involved with

along the way is what makes rugby.”

“We’ve got some great history

together and shared some great

experiences.”

For now Deans says he is loving

life coaching in Japan which allows

him and his wife Penny the

time to visit their three children

who are spread around the world,

and regularly return home.

“What’s appealing about Japan

is that it’s a much better balance

in the year. Europe is 11 months,

Japan is eight with a two-month

winter break, so you’re talking

about a six-month calendar year,

it’s great.”

While rugby will always play

second fiddle to the likes of

baseball in Japan, Deans says the

interest in the game is growing,

something he sees helping Japan’s

national team become a relevant

threat to big rugby nations going

forward.

“It is evolving. Post 2015 the

interest in the game, particularly

with the World Cup coming has

boomed. We have a lot more

general public watching us train

and more of a media presence. The

media presence is probably greater

than here, it’s just a pure numbers

thing,” said Deans.

While in Japan, Deans has also

found time to get involved in his

other sporting passion – cricket.

He has even left a mark on the

Japanese national side after being

invited to a net session with the

team after running into their coach

at his local squash club in Sano.

Robbie Deans back to NZ

The ICC has just tipped in

US$4 million to upgrade their

national centre, so it’s a pretty

good oval. I’ve been down there

and had a hit, and worked with

the national team,” said Deans.

They’ve got some useful cricketers

there who was self-taught. He

watches Shane Warne on You-

Tube and taught himself to bowl,

including a flipper.”

This week Deans is representing

Canterbury at the national

over 60s provincial cricket tournament

in Lower Hutt.

Deans played in a New Zealand

secondary school team in 1977

which featured Martin Crowe

who made the team as a fourth

form student. The team played

against Australian state teams at

a tournament in Christchurch.

Deans finished as the tournament’s

top run scorer and scored

150 against a Tasmania team

Robbie Deans coaching career

Age – 59

which featured David Boon.

Deans played one match for

Canterbury in Waimate in

1982 – the same year he helped

Canterbury’s rugby side win the

Ranfurly Shield.

“At the end of the season I got

sent a cheque for $17.98. I never

banked it because it would have

made me a professional which

would have compromised my

rugby.”

Following his rugby playing career

Deans played representative

cricket for Canterbury Country.

He scored a century against

Marlborough and was part of an

unsuccessful Hawke Cup challenge

against Northland.

At 59, Deans has been given

dispensation to compete at

the over-60s tournament. I’m

sure there won’t be too many

complaints from anyone who has

the opportunity to send down a

delivery to him.

MULTI-TALENTED:

In 2017 he coached

TOUCH CANTERBURY

Touch is once again out in force across parks,

beaches and backyards. The flexibility of this

game sees it as one of the most popular summer

sports in NZ. This season sees more than 17,000

players actively involved in our competitions, which span

across Canterbury and the West coast. Currently we have

35 affiliated modules that cover both junior and senior

competitions and cater to all ages and experience.

Touch really is a sport that caters to people of all

diverse backgrounds and provides opportunities for all.

This is one of the keys to why we are able to develop

relationships with other local sporting communities, and

build strong links within the community.

Whilst a large majority of participants are involved in

touch for the pure social aspect of it, we do have a

developed pathway for those that have higher aspirations

to representative honours.

Touch Canterbury has a long and proud record on the

national stage and this tradition continues with the

upcoming Touch New Zealand Junior and YOM (Youth,

Open and Masters) National tournaments.

2019 will see a total of 17 teams represent Canterbury

and travel to Rotorua in February and March, to compete

against the best players and teams from all over New

Zealand.

The Junior Nationals will see 6 teams compete in the

boys, girls and mixed divisions at both U16 and U18 level.

At the YOM Nationals we will have 11 teams represent

grades from Under 21’s to Over 55’s. The players,

coaches and management have been working extremely

hard, and we look forward to seeing all the preparation be

put into action as they challenge for a national title.

Touch Canterbury also supports the development and

growth of referees within our sport and we are very proud

to once again have the largest provincial contingent of

referees attend these national events.

As with many sports, touch is a user-pay

system which can add extra pressure to

attending these events. Touch Canterbury

and our representative players are extremely

grateful for the support of local businesses and

funders to aid our athletes in recognising and

achieving their goals.

You can keep up to date with all the activity and

results on our Facebook page, https://www.

Touch Team have been a tight-knit unit in

their build up to the Touch New Zealand

Junior Nationals.

This is a fiercly competitive three day

tournament and the team is extremely

proud to be a part of this fantastic event.

Since we have come together as a group,

the team has consistently demonstrated a

positive attitude and the desire to always

improve. There is the belief that we can

upset some of the more fancied North

Island teams.

The Under 18 Mixed Team and

management would like to thank all

the sponsors, parents, caregivers and

supporters who have all contributed

throughout the campaign.

Team set to continue on their winning streak

2018/19 Season has been amazing as I look

back on our campaign and reflect, I remember

our first camp when Alisi Tupuailei ran a session

with boys on “housekeeping” which involved

the boys setting their own expectations and

standards. It was very important for Alisi, Sonya

White and myself that we set a good foundation

around our values “winners forever” where we

practice to teach the boys to be better humans,

sport is for a short time, being a better human is

for a long time.

The most important thing for me is to help

each and every player be the best they can be. I

want them to do things on and off the Touch field

better than they’ve been before, relative to their

age group. They have been smashing their team

and individual goals including winning Gold at

the South Island Championship. They have been

individually improving their times on fitness tests

with the entire team coming in under 5mins in the

Bronco test with the best result a 4m43s which

is quicker than Crusaders Ritchie Mo’unga and

Mitch Hunt (4m45s).

A massive thank you to our two main team

sponsors Bruce Cooper Plastering and AP

Plumbing Ltd, without their contributions none

of the training camps or activities would have

been possible. Thank you to our parents who have

sacrificed time and money and trusted in our

coaching staff this season.

The biggest thank you to all the sponsors

below in supporting the opportunities that

sport provides our young boys with, to develop

attributes that will serve them well throughout

their lives. From the effort and commitment I have

seen I know you have made a great investment.

Team looking forward to National Tournament

The U16 Girls are looking forward to the

Junior Touch Nationals from 8th February – 10th

February in Rotorua. This is a great opportunity

to play the best of the best from every province, it

will be a great challenge, one that the team is very

excited about.

Under the guidance of coach Adrian Godinet,

the team have been working hard on policies and

plays. We travelled to Oamaru where we played in

a mini tournament against Otago and Southland

and then competed at the Southern IPS

tournament here in Christchurch. We had some

challenging games but the girls perservered

and came away winning the finals at both

tournaments.

The girls are a very talented group that have

gelled well together on and off the field and

show immense heart. The girls are captained by

Underdogs ready for National Tournament

The Coaching and Management staff for the

Canterbury Under 16 Mixed team for 2019 would like

to first and foremost thank all sponsors, supporters,

parents and players for all their efforts leading into

this years Junior National Touch Tournament. The

tournament will take place on the 8th-11th February

in Rotorua and will put us against the very best

Mixed Touch teams from all over NZ. So this is a very

exciting tournament for all people involved.

The team has been training weekly for this

tournament for the last four months and have also

been competing in the local Thursday night Burnside

competition riddled with teams full of Canterbury

and NZ senior representatives. This has meant

that we have had to develop quickly as a team and

learn to compete with the best in our region. An

experience most Junior teams don’t receive at such

a young age.

It has been an exciting journey building towards

the Junior National Tournament. We have some

very good talent throughout our team coupled with

great leadership in our two Co-Captains Amy-Lee

Peterson and Isaac Hutchinson. With that in mind, I

believe we have the right recipe for success and our

target is to become the first ever Canterbury team

to win the National Under16 Mixed Competition.

Having previously placed 9th last year, we will be the

underdogs in this tournament and that is a label we

will happily wear and use to catch our competition

off guard. Watch this space.

VW Polo GTi has strong pedigree

VOLKSWAGEN’S Golf GTi

has had a strong following

from those who like to be

driving a hot hatchback.

The legendary sports car

has an enviable reputation for

performance and is certainly

on my list of desirables but at

almost $60k it is probably out

of reach for many – including

me.

However, Volkswagen has

another desirable hot hatch in

its books – the Polo GTi. The

Polo in this form is a vibrant,

five-door modelled on the

lines of its Golf stablemate,

albeit with a $21,000 price difference.

Of course, you don’t get all

the trick stuff of Golf GTi, but

the Polo equivalent is still well

specced, powerful and light,

the combination providing the

ingredients for sporty ability.

Under the bonnet of the

Polo GTi sits a 2-litre, turbocharged

engine which

develops 147kW and 320Nm.

While they may seem average

outputs compared to many of

the high performing models

which make up this part of

the market, the Polo GTi is a

quick car.

It develops a lot of torque

low down (1500rpm-

4400rpm), these figures

meeting the low point of

maximum power at 4400rpm.

Consequently, it is swift off

the mark and will lunge to

high speeds quickly. For the

record, it will make 100km/h

from a standstill in 6.7sec, and

will scorch through a highway

overtake in 4.4sec (80km/h to

120km/h).

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

VOLKSWAGEN POLO GTI: Affordable performance

car.

The test car was fitted with

a six-speed direct shift gearbox,

effectively that means it’s

an automatic. It is a quickshifting

transmission with

ratios that enhance engine

performance, they are low in

the first three or four slots,

broadening to provide relaxed

highway motoring and fuel

usage savings.

Volkswagen claim a 5.9-

litre per 100km/h (48mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage

rating, which sits well with the

7.2l/100km (39mpg) showing

during testing time.

Considering I was aggressive

with the throttle, exploring its

acceleration and performance

potential frequently, those figures

are commendable.

At 100km/h the engine

is relaxed at just 1750rpm,

returning a fabulous instantaneous

readout of 4.5l/100km

(63mpg).

However, such is the freerevving

nature of the engine,

fuel economy often gets

ignored, the Polo has decisive

response to accelerator input,

it is feisty and downright keen

to pull hard.

The excitement from under

the bonnet is matched by a

firm-riding, sport-orientated

suspension. The Polo’s set-up

isn’t as sophisticated as that of

the Golf GTi, and as its simplicity

shows, the ride is a little

harsh, there’s not a lot of compliance,

but it is engineered

towards a positive handling

experience, and to that end it

excels.

However, the Polo GTi

points and turns into a corner

with decisive steering feel

and kart-like stability. It is

extremely nimble and agile, a

lot of that thanks to the light

weight of the car in total.

At 1355kg it isn’t dragging

around any excess, which

means a high power-to-weight

ratio, and with its angry

engine sound and lovely, but

subdued, exhaust crackle

on gearshifts, the Polo GTi

lures and entices the driver to

explore its potential.

At around $39k the Polo

GTi also comes in with a good

level of kit. I particularly like

the tartan seats, they are very

much a match for Golf GTi,

alongside that, the Polo GTi

also encapsulates a lot of what

Volkswagen represents as a

performance brand.

The Polo has been used with

considerable success in the

World Rally Championship,

and the GTi branding benefits

from that exposure. With

the way the Polo GTi looks

and the inclusion of features

such as a built-in stopwatch

you could almost believe it is

meant for competition.

It’s most certainly an

exciting car to be behind

the wheel of, and at its price

point it is also a realistic

opportunity for those who

like something different in a

sports car.

• Price – Volkswagen Polo GTi, $38,490

• Dimensions – Length, 4053mm;

width, 1751mm; height, 1461mm

• Configuration – Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,

1984cc, 147kW, 320Nm,

six-speed automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.7sec

• Fuel usage – 5.9l/100km

STYLE: Polo GTi is a genuine hothatchback.

GARDENING ADVICE

How do I grow Rhubarb and care for it?

Q Today’s winning question came from Annette. Congratulations!

A

Given the right conditions, rhubarb is a

relatively easy crop to grow that will continue

producing for a number of years.

Rhubarb prefers rich, organic, free draining

soil in a spot that gets full sun. Add plenty of

compost into the soil before planting with some Garden

Time TM Chicken and Sheep Pellets.

Rhubarb is a ‘gross feeder’ so feed regularly with

Garden Time TM Compost and again, apply organic

fertilisers like the chicken and sheep pellets in early

spring and autumn.

If rhubarb plants dry out, they will collapse very quickly.

They require regular deep watering during hot,

dry Canterbury summers, finished with a

good layer of mulch on top. Mulch helps

water retention during hot summer days

and stops plants from drying out.

Remove the outer

growth even if you

Regular mulching throughout the hot summer months is vital in helping you maintain a

lush, healthy garden. Apply a thick layer on top of soil around plants, trees and especially

pots, to aid water retention. Avoid watering during the hottest part of the day when plants

are heat stressed; instead water regularly and deeply in the early morning or evening.

We have a $95 Daltons Summer Garden Survival Pack to giveaway including: 2x Garden

Time Landscape Bark 40L, 2x Besgrow Coir Briquette, 2x Garden Time Compost 40L, Garden

Time Complete Fertiliser 5kg, Garden Time Fruit & Citrus Fertiliser 1.5kg, Daltons Water Storage

Crystals 250g, plus Red Back gardening gloves from Omni Products www.omniproducts.co.nz

are not using them, to encourage vigorous new stems

to develop. Only eat the stems; the rhubarb leaves are

highly toxic so don’t feed them to animals (or humans!).

Instead, pop them in your compost bin.

In some parts of New Zealand during winter, rhubarb

plants can look rather sad, but by spreading side

dressing of the above organic fertilisers in early spring,

the plants will quickly recover and flourish in time for

summer.

You may need to replant your rhubarb every 4-5 years,

however some plants can last much longer.

More than ever, we now require our homes

to be a sanctuary - a primate haven where

the cares and pressures of the world do not

intrude. The home should be an enveloping,

warm and creative environment where family

members of all ages feel relaxed and safe.

The longer you live in your home, the more

likely you are to feel in sync with it.

As the seasons come and go you’ll have got

to know which rooms are sunny and which

ones need brightening.

You’ll have noted areas prone to damp.

You’ll have observed where different family

members like to spend their time and why.

You might have come to the conclusion

that major changes are required to make

your home as healthy as possible, or perhaps

you’ve concluded that a few simple tweaks

will do the trick.

MATERIALS

The ‘make-do-and-mend’ culture that has

grown during the recession places emphasis

on the satisfaction that can be found in

incorporating natural materials with vintage

items. Pieces of driftwood, collections of

shells, that lovely

moss-covered garden bench or a ‘cleverly’

revived piece of furniture all have their place

in the healthy home and its surroundings.

This trend steers away from plastics and

synthetic materials.

HEATING AND VENTILATION

A home needs to be cool in summer, with

plenty of natural ventilation, and warm

in winter. Traditional open fires are being

phased out and home owners are discovering

the joys of installing modern wood burners,

using gas for heating or installing a heat pump.

All these options are healthy - technology has

come a long way and most choices will see you

saving money in the long run.

STORAGE

While a minimalist style might be fine for

single people or couples without kids, when

the patter of tiny feet comes along, good

storage is going to be vital at every stage of

a child’s life - be they babies or teens - they

come with clutter. The more you can contain

that clutter the better in terms of both your

mental health and general safety.

There are any number of options available,

from professionally designed cupboards

and wardrobes, to the simple lidded plastic

boxes you can buy at chain stores. While

some people claim they thrive in a messy

environment. I know from experience that a

lovely, orderly home is good for the soul.

COLOUR

Choosing the

right colours

for your home

can make a big

difference. Small,

dark rooms

can be opened

up and made

brighter simply

by choosing

the right paint.

Today’s homes

tend to be more

open plan, so

choose a palette

of two or three

basic colours

and use them

throughout

to achieve

cohesion and

harmony.
