More Lime scooters on the way

FUTURE: City councillors Vicki Buck and Pauline Cotter were part of the committee which approved extending the

permit for Lime scooters.

• By Julia Evans

MORE LIME scooters will be

seen on Christchurch streets.

A city council committee

yesterday recommended the

California-based company’s

permit be extended to one year

with an $86.25 annual rental

fee.

It will also be able to boost its

fleet from 700 scooters to 1000.

There will be a city-wide limit

of 1600 e-scooters, although

that number may be adjusted.

The city council will get

the final say on approving the

committee’s recommendations.

Too many

parents

calling

police

on their

children

• By Matt Slaughter

POLICE ARE becoming

increasingly frustrated with

parents asking them to sort out

their children’s tantrums, hissy

fits and yelling matches.

At least one call a month

is being made to police from

parents who are not able to deal

with their kids

behaviour. Some

are even phoning

111. Sergeant Jim

Currie said it is

wasting hours of

valuable police

time.

“It’s taking Jim Currie

our resources

away from things like dealing

with family harm and burglaries

where people really need us,” he

said.

Police had received calls from

parents of children as young as

nine who had reported issues

as insignificant as their children

refusing to turn off their gaming

consoles, Sergeant Currie said.

He said the solution to the

conflicts was not to call police,

but for parents “to be parents,

take responsibility and set clear

rules to make it clear what the

consequences are.”

targets for burglars and thieves.

Police say the problem is

happening in small Canterbury

outside those areas move in.

In Leeston, an elderly man’s

unlocked ute was stolen while he

did the grocery shopping.

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Sophie Cornish

OFFERS HAVE poured in

for the teenage boy who was

held up at knifepoint for the

mountain bike he had saved

up for.

Last week, The Star reported

Sam Bryson, 13 was

walking with his bike along

Centaurus Rd, Huntsbury,

on February 9, when he

was approached by a man

holding a large kitchen

knife, who then stole his

bike.

“Give me your f**king

bike, boy,” said the robber,

who was described

as Polynesian and in

his late 20s.

Several offers have

been made from the public to

purchase Sam a new bike, or

help pay for one.

However, Sam’s parents, Stewart

and Anna Bryson, were able

to get a new bike through their

insurance.

“He’s good; he’s had a

chance to ride it. He tried to

ride it to school and I said: ‘No

way.’ It’s actually a much better

bike, the new one, so he’s a

happy kid.”

“It’s funny because Sam delivers

The Star on a Thursday and

he was putting his own face in

people’s letterboxes,” said Mr

Bryson.

Sam has a road bike he uses to

get to school.

Limes to stay for another year

•From page 1

More than a quarter of

Christchurch residents made

400,000 trips on the scooters

since they were launched on a

trial basis in October, for which

Lime paid $136.

Feedback on the

scooters has been

overwhelmingly

positive. A city council

survey found 93 per

cent of users called for

them to stay.

Committee

chairwoman and city

councillor Pauline

Cotter said the scooters

were bringing great

economic benefits to the city.

They’ve certainly arrived with

a whoosh and a roar,” she said.

However, Lime wrote to the

city council to put forward a

number of different proposals,

including “exclusivity” in the

city in exchange for it paying

the council $83 per scooter

– $132,800 a year for 1600

scooters.

It also put forward proposals

for a reduced rate of $49 per

scooter for 1000 scooters, a tax

of $0.05 per trip, exclusivity

for four years for $200,000 or

removing the 1600 cap.

However, city council

staff said: “This process is

not a negotiation, nor is it a

commercial arrangement with

a particular operator. Any

concepts of exclusivity

raise several issues

around anticompetitive

practices.”

City councillor

Mike Davidson

opposed allowing

Lime to increase its

fleet to 1000 – he

wanted the number

capped at 800.

“It’s a bit of a shame.

I think if we limited Lime to

50 per cent then potentially we

would have encouraged other

operators to come forward.

Wouldn’t it be great if we

actually had a local provider

instead of an international one?”

he said.

Cr Cotter said there was an

opening for another operator to

come in with 600 scooters.

The city council has had

expressions of interest from

other e-scooter companies,

although none had applied for a

trading permit.

Moore reveals legal costs

• By Julia Evans

FORMER MAYOR Garry Moore

has revealed how much it cost to

fight legal action taken against

him by a senior city council boss.

Mr Moore was sued last year

for $500,000 by the head of the

city council’s three waters and

waste John Mackie.

Mr Mackie alleged he was defamed

over comments Mr Moore

made, suggesting Mr Mackie

was pushing the interests of

pro-chlorine group Water New

Zealand.

The legal action was dropped,

but Mr Moore revealed this week

it had cost him $20,000 in legal

fees.

The lawsuit and allegations

were dropped after discussions

between the pair mediated by

former SCIRT value manager

Rod Cameron at the end of last

year, said Mr Moore.

The case was a result of a

misunderstanding. All it took

was a few conversations and we

found out we got on famously,”

Mr Moore said.

“I’m interested in public debate

about public issues and that’s

what I will continue doing.

This particular debate cost me

$20,000, usually it just costs me a

beer or a coffee.”

Garry Moore John Mackie

Mr Mackie sought $500,000

in damages as he said Mr Moore

made defamatory allegations

that he was pushing the interests

of pro-chlorination group Water

New Zealand.

Sources have confirmed that

Mr Mackie has resigned from his

role at the city council.

However, a city council spokesperson

said it could not comment

on specific employment cases for

privacy reasons. Mr Mackie did

not respond to questions from

The Star.

Mr Mackie was appointed

head of three waters and waste in

2016, which runs the city’s water

supply, stormwater and sewerage

systems.

Mr Mackie is a board member

of Water New Zealand. In October,

the city council canned its

membership of the organisation,

due to concerns it was pushing

for mandatory chlorination.

The three waters and waste

team was also criticised in a draft

report, which investigated how

the city’s drinking water came to

need chlorination.

Mr Mackie asked for changes

in the final report to say his unit

had been under-resourced.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said

chlorinating the city’s water may

have been avoided if councillors

had been made aware of the issue

with wellheads sooner.

•From page 1

There were times when calls

from concerned parents were

justified but small household

disputes were too commonly

reported.

“It ranges from tantrums

and not getting off the Xbox to

actually physically threatening

the parents. The physically

threatening ones we’re quite

happy to deal with, but not these

ones where the kid won’t do

the dishes or won’t get off the

Xbox.”

Christchurch psychologist

Sushila Deo said calling the

police was serious, and if parents

were doing it for unnecessary

reasons it could damage how

children viewed authority and

discipline.

Calling the police on children

is the worst way to change their

behaviour and extreme threats

like this should almost never be

necessary, Mrs Deo said.

She said parenting is about

making an effort to spend time

with children away from the

things that cause conflict and

“giving them options for some

replacement behaviours.”

contacting the police.

Stadium ideas

will be set

out this week

• By Julia Evans

IDEAS FOR the design of the city’s

long-awaited stadium will be set

out at meetings held this week.

Potential users and interest

groups are meeting at stakeholder

forums to discuss the stadium’s

investment case, offer feedback

and ideas.

“Representatives of sporting

organisations, business, events and

entertainment and key community

groups have been involved throughout

the process,” city council

general manager citizens and community

Mary Richardson said.

The city council has been working

on the investment case for the

stadium planned for the block

bound by Madras, Barbadoes,

Hereford and Tuams Sts after it

was given the green light in April.

It brought forward $253 million

in the Long Term Plan to fund

the stadium and the Government

ear-marked an additional $220

million, on top of the $86.7 million

spent to purchase the land.

The investment case is based

on a $473 million covered

stadium with 25,000-seat capacity

and room for 5000 temporary

seats.

Jessie is Canty’s oldest woman

• By Sophie Cornish

JESSIE ALABONE is 39,258

days old today.

That makes her the oldest living

person in Canterbury.

To save you reaching for

the calculator, Mrs Alabone is

107-years-old and 175 days.

Previously, Howard Buss was

the oldest living person in Canterbury.

He died on January 25, aged

107 years and 214 days.

Born on August 22, 1911, Mrs

Alabone sits at number 58 on

Gerontology Wiki’s list of the

oldest New Zealanders to ever

live.

Only two other people on the

list older than Mrs Alabone are

still alive.

Lola de la Haye, born in November

1909, is 109-years-old

and lives in New Plymouth.

Mabel Jenkins is said to be living

in the Waikato at 110-yearsold,

but her age is yet to be

verified online.

Mrs Alabone has seven grandchildren,

15 great-grandchildren

and eight great-great-grandchildren.

She was the third oldest of 15

children of William and Mary

McDonald, who arrived from

AGEING GRACEFULLY: Jessie Alabone is Canterbury’s oldest

Victoria, Australia, in 1910.

Mr McDonald was a wellknown

saddler and their family

had a long association in the harness

racing industry.

Two of her youngest siblings

are still alive and her mother

died aged 102.

Mrs Alabone attended St

Joseph’s Cathedral School in

Papanui and completed high

school at Christchurch Technical

College.

“She loved school, she was a

great student, good at maths

and had a great memory. She

had attention to detail, played

the piano and liked the finer

things in life,” said Mrs Smaill.

Mrs Alabone began working in

a shoe shop at age 15. She worked

at Strange and Co, Farmers, and

Stewart Robinson’s shoe shop. She

eventually managed a retail store.

She met Percy ‘Bill’ Alabone

at Fraser’s dancing school and

in 1932, they married at St

Mathew’s Church, St Albans,

when she was 21.

The couple went on to have two

children, Diana and Billy.

Mrs Alabone enjoyed hobbies

such as embroidery, baking and

travelling, was a capable seamstress

and a passionate gardener.

Mrs Smaill said her grandmother

attributed her memory to

her lack of multi-tasking.

“She liked to focus on finishing

one job then starting another

as well as keeping everything in

moderation,” said Mrs Smaill.

Her motto in life was: ‘What

will be, will be.’

“She never, ever looked to the

past and she never looked to the

future. She lives in the here and

now,” said Mrs Smaill.

Mrs Alabone was still driving

when she was 100 and lived

independently until 102.

Professor’s burglary case closed

THE CURIOUS case of the

burgled professor is no closer to

being resolved, as a year-long

police investigation wrapped up

with an inconclusive result.

Canterbury University professor

Anne-Marie Brady suffered

a number of suspicious burglaries

in early 2018 that she – and

other scholars and intelligence

analysts – have

said were likely

a response to

her critical

work investigating

China’s

foreign influence

activities.

Anne-Marie

Brady

The investigation,

which

stretched for

almost a year, involved the

police’s secretive National

Security Investigation Team,

international law-enforcement

body Interpol and spy agency

the New Zealand Security and

Intelligence Service. The latter

agency also swept Dr Brady’s

home and university office for

bugs.

Yesterday, a statement today

police said they had been unable

to resolve the case.

“Police have taken these

incidents very seriously and a

lengthy, detailed and extensive

investigation has been

conducted. This has involved

all necessary police resources

including detailed forensic

analysis, interviews and expert

advice.

The burglaries and other

matters reported remain unresolved

at this time. The

investigation is now at a point

where there are no further lines

of inquiry to pursue unless new

information becomes available.”

Dr Brady told the New

Zealand Herald she had been

informed of the investigation’s

conclusion on Monday, and was

disappointed with the result.

Landlords

Insulate against fines!

By now, landlords, property managers

and most tenants will be aware of the

changes to the Residential Tenancy Act

concerning home insulation, requiring all

rental properties to have adequate ceiling

and under floor insulation installed, where

practicable, by 30 June 2019.

However, many landlords and property

managers may not be aware they could be

liable for a $4,000 fine (per non-compliant

property), payable to the tenants, if their

investment properties do not meet the

standard in time. With an estimated 125,000

rental properties still requiring better

insulation, these owners and property

managers are being urged to take action now

to avoid the impending rush.

Local long-established insulation specialists

EnergySmart are a selected service

provider for the government’s EECA (Energy

Efficiency and Conservation Authority)

insulation programme, and currently offer

both landlords and homeowners great

savings to better insulate their properties.

The company offers free property

assessments with an insulation Compliance

Certificate for the property if the existing

insulation already complies. If insulation

is required, they provide a Compliance

Report and quote to complete the work.

Extended home energy assessments are

also available, covering heat pumps and LED

lights if required.

EnergySmart are one of the largest

manufacturers and installers of insulation

products in New Zealand and supply a

range of home solutions including their

own insulation brands Terra Lana wool and

PolyKing polyester, as well as supplying Pink

Batts fibreglass insulation. All carry a 50

year warranty.

Their installers are fully trained, clean

and tidy, and their work is audited both

internally as well as by the government, so

you are assured of the highest standard of

workmanship.

EnergySmart has easy payment options

including no deposit and 36 months

interest free, meaning you can insulate your

property from only $12 per week. Landlords

can insulate now, take advantage of current

discounts, and beat the rush.

While insulation in rental properties is now

a legal requirement for landlords, they will

also have the satisfaction of knowing their

tenants are living in a warmer healthier, more

energy-efficient home, and consequently

are more likely to stay.

assessment and insulation options,

“I am disappointed that in

spite of the hard work of individual

officers the police have

not identified the culprit,” she

said.

Dr Brady, an internationally

respected academic, emerged as

a public figure in late 2017 after

publishing her Magic Weapons

paper using New Zealand

as a case study in mapping out

China’s international influence

campaigns.

Her work focused political donations,

board appointments for

ex-politicians and their families,

and connections between these

and China’s external influence

agency the United Front Works

Department. Following publication

Brady has travelled to brief

officials in Ottawa, Washington,

London, Canberra and elsewhere.

The burglary of her home on

February 14 saw devices – laptops

and a burner phone – used

to research the paper taken, but

other valuables – including jewellery

and cash left in the open –

ignored. The following day, her

office was also broken into.

In November her mechanic,

unaware of the ongoing probe

into the case, reported he believed

her family’s car had been

“tampered with” after finding

both front tyres had dangerously

low pressure. Police folded

this claim into their investigation,

the New Zealand Herald

reported.

Early on, Brady had classed

the burglaries as harassment in

response to her work on China.

Days after the burglaries

she told an Australian

parliamentary committee her

earlier research on Antarctic

politics had seen pressure put on

her employer, and more recently

people she associated with in

China had been questioned

by Ministry of State Security

officials.

Campaigner not giving up battle

• By Julia Evans

GRAHAM TATE returned from

Zimbabwe in the 1990s with the

intention of enjoying his twilight

years.

He loves boogie-boarding and

bowls.

But for the last 11 months, the

84-year-old has been battling a

sort of David and Goliath fight

against bureaucracy.

“He enjoys a challenge,” his

wife Marion said.

It’s been a month since the

Goliath in this situation – Environment

Canterbury – stopped

the Orbiter running along

Philpotts Rd, Mairehau, due to

Northern Corridor changes on

QE II Drive.

But the bus was caught regularly

by the elderly residents of the

Diana Isaac Retirement Village.

They now face a 1km walk to

the nearest stop on Innes Rd.

Talking about it brings tears to

his eyes, which Mr Tate bats away

with the handkerchief from his

pocket.

“You’ve got to understand in

a place like this there are a lot of

old people who can’t think about

much other than the little day to

day things.”

They pay rates, have medical

appointments and need to get

groceries – the bus service is essential,

he said.

He can drive, but wears hearing

aids. He has found it hard going

to public meetings because he

can’t hear everything that’s said.

FIGHT: Eightyfour-year-old

Graham Tate

says he won’t

give up on

having the

Orbiter bus

service returned

for residents

of Diana Isaac

Retirement

Village.

But Mr Tate doesn’t let that stop

him. There are the more than

350 residents who have had their

independence “ripped” away with

the loss of the bus access.

To become a resident at the village,

you have to be over 70, but

most are over 80 – there’s even

Jessie Alabone who, at 107, is the

oldest person in Canterbury (see

her story on page 6).

“I’ve had to stand up to get any

activity. I don’t like to have residents

who have no other option

stymied.”

Mr Tate is leading the charge

with the support of Ryman

Healthcare, which runs the

retirement village. He has lobbied

the city council, local councillor

Pauline Cotter and MP Duncan

Webb on top of organising a protest

outside ECan’s building with

150 pensioners and a petition

with 650 signatures.

“It’s become as much of a personal

crusade.”

While its not the first challenge

Mr Tate has taken on, he said

its the one that has taken the

greatest toll.

for independence

He lectured for “20-odd years”

at Lincoln University on farm

management and “extension” –

which is the process of bringing

about change in a community –

before working overseas.

“We went and worked with volunteer

services abroad in Africa

for some time and then I set up a

little business working in overseas

development, mainly involved in

bringing about change in rural

communities,” Mr Tate said.

He had contracts in more than

20 developing countries.

There was a remote community

on the border of Mozambique and

I spent a lot of time with them

because they were largely ignored

by the Government. We managed

to place a planning officer from

New Zealand to help,” Mr Tate

said.

“So there’s nothing new to me

about bringing change. But this

feels more important . . . I thought

at the start this was going to be

good. Bringing about change usually

involves a personal relationship

with someone and I thought

we were achieving that.”

However, he said that is no

longer the case.

“It’s proving a bureaucracy that I

have always skirted around in the

past, but I’m very blocked here.”

ECan raised the idea of trialling

a service to take residents to

bus stops. But the vehicle would

have been run by volunteers from

the village.

“I was a supporter of that. But

it’s too complicated for a village

of this age, so its not a goer. We’ve

got to forget about that and get on

and find something else,” Mr Tate

said.

However, ECan has given up.

Senior manager of public transport

Stuart Gibbons said: “We’ve

run out of ideas.”

“We’ve offered alternatives and

• By Julia Evans

RESIDENTS ARE rallying

to have suburbs left out of the

Shirley Boys’ and Avonside Girls’

High School zone permanently

included.

In April, the Ministry

of Education came up

with a compromise for

a 13-year transitional

zone that allows students

living in the current

zones around Richmond,

Shirley, Avonside, Dallington,

St Albans and

Edgeware to enrol at the

new multi-million QE II

Park campus.

The zone will be reviewed in

May, a month after students start

at the new school.

But residents from the excluded

suburbs have launched a petition,

which will be sent to the ministry

calling for the transitional zone to

be made permanent.

‘Were’ so disappointed’

• By Julia Evans

GRAHAM LAWN hasn’t been

behind the wheel of a car for

the last five years.

“It’s just old age, your mobility

becomes restricted,” he said.

But the 92-year-old resident

of Diana Isaac Retirement

Village says his independence

has been “ruined” since the

Orbiter stopped running along

Philpotts Rd.

Mr Lawn and his wife Lenore

relied on the bus for medical

appointments, shopping and

even had the odd trip out to

Sumner.

However, as they have to

use walking sticks or mobility

scooters, they cannot walk the

1km to Innes Rd.

Instead, Mr and Mrs Lawn

are having to taxi or simply not

go out.

“We have half price in the

taxi, but it’s just not the same.

You have to wait for it to come,

you can’t just go at your own

we haven’t been able to implement

those alternatives, so there’s really

not much to do.”

The solution the residents are

pushing for is rerouting the 44 bus

route down Philpotts Rd. It would

then do a turn and head back

towards Innes Rd.

But Mr Gibbon said it would

cost $100,000 and this, combined

with the time it would take to

construct, meant ECan did not see

this as a good option.

“We have explored alternative

ways of rerouting the 44 as

requested by the residents and

Ryman, however, it is not viable to

further pursue this at this time,”

Mr Gibbon said.

So far it has 100 signatures.

Dallington Residents Association

chairwoman Bebe Frayle said

it always planned to lobby for the

zone to be made permanent.

“But what kicked off our regrouping

was the info

that Shirley Boys’ has

closed their out-ofzone

roll as soon as it

opened,” she said.

SBHS closed its enrolments

for out-of-zone

students last month, two

months before it moves.

“For us, it’s all about

gathering support

and the plan would

be to talk to communities and

the school, mostly the people affected,”

she said.

Being permanently excluded

from the zone would have impact

on house prices, divide communities

and disrupt families.

“We’re placed in a very weird

Graham Lawn

pace,” he said.

Plus, Mr Lawn said the cost

was mounting up quickly.

“We’re so disappointed . . .

This is absolutely essential for

people like us. You could take

the Orbiter to Northlands or

The Palms and get anywhere in

the city. Now that’s gone.”

“We have invested considerable

effort in trying to identify a viable

and sustainable solution, but have

unfortunately not succeeded in

finding one that meets the needs

of all parties involved. We’ve now

reached the point where we have

exhausted the range of options

available to us.”

In the meantime, Ryman will

operate a village taxi and car

share scheme to make sure residents

can still get around from

next month.

However, the battle for the bus is

not over for the residents of Diana

Isaac.

“We’ll keep plugging,” Mr Tate

said.

School zone petition launched

Bebe Frayle

position and as residents, we

can’t say that this is our local

school. We don’t have one,” she

said.

“It’s a weird and unfair position

for families to be in.”

But Ministry of Education deputy

secretary sector enablement and

support Katrina Casey said the

changes made to the enrolment

schemes were to reflect their new

location.

The enrolment schemes will

help Avonside Girls’ High School,

and Shirley Boys’ High School

make effective and efficient use

of their new schools and will

give them the ability to manage

future rolls and reduce the risk of

overcrowding,” she said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Meth use leads to $12k payout to landlord

A TENANT who made off with

a stained glass window and

smoked methamphetamine in

her flat has been ordered to pay

almost $12,000 to her landlord.

Kerry Lee Harper was the

second Christchurch tenant in

a week to be hit with thousands

of dollars in damage claims at

the Tenancy Tribunal as a result

of meth contamination, New

Zealand Herald reported.

She must now hand over

$11,558 to Champagne Homes,

including $3145 for meth testing,

$800 for the replacement

of a stained glass window and

$5640 for cleaning and repainting

her rental.

With Harper failing to attend

the tribunal hearing, the adjudicator

backed all the claims put

forward by Champagne Homes.

The company said it had significantly

repaired the rental before

giving it to Harper, but that once

her tenancy ended, they found a

stained glass window removed

from an inside door and the

walls contaminated with meth.

Fronting the Tenancy Tribunal

in a separate hearing, fellow

Christchurch tenant Minna

O’Toole was also ordered to pay

$13,241 to her landlord Holmwood

Real Estate.

The company told the hearing

O’Toole or others had smoked

meth in the rental, leading to it

spending more than $12,000 on

meth testing and cleaning costs.

It said there were clear signs

O’Toole had been taking drugs

in the rental during the last six

months of her tenancy.

The tenant’s behaviour

changed. She became irrational

and appeared cut off. Her eyes

rolled in her head and she could

not maintain eye contact,” the

landlord told the tribunal.

“While she had previously

kept the premises reasonably

clean and tidy, it became filthy.

There were little bags containing

marijuana and butane bottles

in the premises.”

Meth testing also showed

the rental exceeded contamination

levels of 15 µg/100cm²

currently used as a guideline after

being backed by the former chief

scientific adviser to the Prime

Minister Sir Peter Gluckman.

“In the circumstances, I

accept that the proposed decontamination

is necessary to

get the premises to a reasonably

clean and tidy state,” the adjudicator

wrote.

The [damage] amounts

ordered are proved.”

Taggers run rampant in port

• By Louis Day

TAGGING IN Lyttelton is the

worst it’s been in 20 years – and

locals want something done

about it.

Their frustration has been

growing since the timeball

station was vandalised earlier this

month, adding to the growing list

of buildings and signs tagged in

the area.

Lyttelton Community

Association chairman Ken

Maynard said the current wave of

vandalism in the area is the worst

he has seen in 20 years of living

there.

“It seems to be getting worse.

The offensive ones like the

timeball are over the quality

street art where the taggers have

felt the need to make their own

contribution.”

Mr Maynard believes tagging

in the area has been getting

progressively worse since the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

The increase of derelict

buildings, which I think are more

susceptible to tagging than live

ones, have provided taggers with

a window of opportunity.”

Mr Maynard said the police

could only do so much to track

down taggers and it was the

VANDALISED: Lyttelton Community Association chairman Ken Maynard believes the

tagging done to the mural on the Eruption Brewing building (above) and the one across

from it (right) are just as offensive as the vandalism carried out at the timeball.

responsibility of the taggers’

parents or guardians to prevent

it from happening. Sergeant

Franco Lovrich said police need

the public’s help to identify the

perpetrators of what he described

as “mindless vandalism.”

“If anyone could identify

the tag or give us a name of a

potential suspect, we would

certainly follow up on that

information,” Sergeant Lovrich

said.

Eruption Brewing owner

Brendan Hyman said he was

devastated to see taggers had

defaced the mural on the side of

his microbrewery.

“I really don’t like tagging, but

I love street art, and the fact that

they have tagged over what was

a great piece of street art is quite

upsetting.”

Mr Hyman said it has been an

ongoing battle with taggers since

he opened the microbrewery last

year.

Lyttelton Coffee Company

owner Stephen Mateer said he has

to deal with tagging on his cafe

regularly. “I have got two to clean

off at the moment actually, but

there are some I quite like that I

might leave on the building.”

Community stalwart dies

• By Julia Evans

FORMER CITY councillor David

Cox has died after a long illness.

The 80-year-old Redcliffs

identity gave a lifetime of service

to the community including four

terms as a councillor and Hagley-

Ferrymead Community Board

member.

Mr Cox had Parkinson’s disease

for the last three-and-a-half years.

However, he died last week after a

battle with cancer.

His wife of 56 years Fiona said

he cared so much about the community

and was still working

with the library a month before

he passed away.

“He was living life pretty well

until just before Christmas. All

the family came for Christmas

and we had the best day ever,” she

said.

Mr Cox leaves behind children

and grandchildren, Sonia and

Peter Caird, Andrew and Sarah

Cox, James, Simon and Michael

Caird, and Annabel and Claudia

Cox.

He was the first chairman of the

Hagley-Ferrymead Community

Board in 1989 and held the Ferrymead

and Hagley-Ferrymead

seat on the city council for four

terms, before a final term on the

board.

Mr Cox retired from council

in 2013 but throughout his life he

was also a patron of the Redcliffs

Library, as well as chairman of

the Music Centre of Christchurch

and member on the board of the

Christchurch Symphony Orchestra.

He was involved in the Sumner

Lifeboat Institution, the Youth

DEDICATION: Former city councillor David Cox died last week.

Heritage Education Trust, a member

of the Court Theatre Trust

and a committee member for

Bromley Kindergarten, Christchurch

East School and Linwood

College.

Mr Cox was active in a number

of sports clubs including

Christchurch United, Ferrymead

Bays Football Club, Sumner

Cricket and Canterbury Sports

Foundation.

Ferrymead Bays wore black

armbands and held a minute’s

silence in his honour before their

game on Saturday.

The city council will also hold

a minute’s silence at its meeting

today.

City councillor Yani Johanson

worked with Mr Cox from 2001,

when he was first elected to the

board.

“He was a really hard-working

and dedicated servant to the community.

He was involved with

young sports people, volunteer

groups, the libraries. In terms of

his service to the community, he

was incredible.”

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member Darrell

Latham said he was

a great adviser for board matters.

“He emailed and phoned me.

We met on several occasions at

functions and he offered great

advice and support. David Cox

has provided excellent service and

support to Christchurch city and

to his community. This will be his

enduring legacy.’’

A celebration of Mr Cox’s life

will be held at the Christchurch

Transitional Cathedral tomorrow

from 2pm.

$1m safety upgrade for dangerous intersection

THE CITY’S fourth most

dangerous junction could become

a T intersection in a bid to reduce

the number of crashes.

Plans for the $1 million safety

upgrade at the Middleton, Ilam

and Riccarton Rd intersection

have been revealed by the city

council.

Restricting Riccarton Rd from

Middleton Rd to left turns in and

out only, as well as narrowing

the road to allow more footpath

space for pedestrians has been

proposed.

It was ranked the city’s fourth

most dangerous, raking up 40

crashes with varying degree of

injury since 2011.

The left turn slip lanes from

Ilam Rd into Riccarton Rd would

also be removed.

closer however, and it’s very

cute.

She gets her favourite soft

toys, like her Dragon, wraps

her wee arms around them and

gives them a big, smiling, moving

side-to-side cuddle.

Dragon even gets a couple of

kisses on his cheek sometimes.

Very, very cute.

She even gave someone else’s

teddy a big cuddle at Baby

Times. I can’t wait to see her

give her friends big hugs too.

This week started out productively.

Over the weekend Laura

and I cleaned the whole house

(hence the mouse update) with

a focus on Vittoria’s room.

Her room has seen a lot of use

for storage, including her cot.

We’ve been co-sleeping with

the wee darling for a while now.

She got sick last year which

ended a joyous run of full nights

of sleep until we gave in and let

her into the big bed.

VITTORIA

& Matt

Long road ahead

getting back to cot

Thing is, getting her back into

sleeping in her own bed is not

going to be easy.

In bed with one of us, she can

roll over, touch us and get reassured

straight away that she’s

safe and with her parents.

In the cot, not so much.

It really highlights how much

like a little prison those things

are when you see your daughter

standing there, holding the bars

and crying like the world just

ended.

And if you’re used to having

your parents next to you when

you settle back to sleep, Dad just

holding your hand is not going

to cut it.

So we’ve got a long road ahead

to get her back to a place where

she feels safe in her cot and

happy to sleep there all night.

A lot of that road will involve

very little sleep too.

To add to the difficulty, this

week Vittoria and I have got

some sort of cold. It may be

unfair, but I’m pretty sure I

got it off her since we spend so

much time in close proximity.

Complaints over

pathway bottleneck

• By Louis Day

CONSTRUCTION of the

Christchurch Yacht Club’s new

boat shed has created a choke

point on the coastal pathway.

The $1.3 million boat shed will

have a deck which will add 4m of

width to the pathway, eliminating

the choke point.

However, Christchurch Yacht

Club boat shed project manager

Frank Coppens said the deck

would not be ready until June or

July.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member and

city councillor Sara Templeton

said a temporary solution is being

looked at.

Redcliffs Residents’ Association

secretary Pat McIntosh said

boat shed.

HUNTER

the current state of the path

was disgraceful and something

needed to be done before June.

“We have had a number of

complaints from residents

about the condition of the path,

especially affected being the elderly

and those with infants and

children. There is no access for

the disabled to Sumner without

using a car,” she said.

Cr Templeton hoped a

temporary solution could be put

in place.

“I have asked for city council

staff to meet with the CYC again

in the next week to come up

with a temporary solution to the

narrowness of the path while the

platform and permanent pathway

are being built,” she said.

Help get rid of chlorine

WITH FEBRUARY traditionally

the hottest month of the year,

the city council is reminding

residents to keep doing their bit

to save water so it can work to

remove chlorine from the city’s

water supply as soon as possible.

The council is aiming for

the city’s drinking water to be

un-chlorinated by May, which

will mark 12 months since it

rolled out chlorine treatment

in response to advice from the

Canterbury medical officer of

health.

City council water supply

improvement programme

manager Helen Beaumont said

achieving the target depends

partly on people continuing to

use less water so wells can be

taken offline and upgraded as

needed.

“We’re definitely not out of the

woods yet, and we really need

people to keep watching their

water use so we can upgrade our

wells and continue to cut back

the chlorine across the city,” Ms

Beaumont said.

“We’re experiencing much

hotter days now, with less rain

in between, so the temptation

is to leave the garden sprinklers

on for longer or to turn them on

more often.

CONSERVE: The city council is asking people to only water

their gardens on alternate days between 9pm and 7am,

when it’s cooler.

“We have no issue with people

watering their lawns or gardens,

but we do ask they use a handheld

hose or watering can, which

avoids any waste, and only water

on alternate days between 9pm

and 7am, when it’s cooler.”

Sprinklers and garden

irrigators are the biggest users of

household water, but there are

plenty of other ways people can

help save, said Ms Beaumont.

“Taking shorter showers,

doing one less laundry load

a week, and sweeping your

driveway instead of hosing it

are all ways people can help

save water. It may not seem like

much, but a lot of people doing a

little really adds up.”

By May the city council

expects to have completed

temporary upgrades on 19

below-ground wells and to have

raised another 41 above ground,

bringing the total number of

secure wells to 98 out of 140.

“If we can upgrade those wells

as planned, we should have

enough un-chlorinated water to

supply the city over the winter

months, when we use about 50

per cent less water than we do

over summer.”

Have your say on the

planned rates increase

AS A COUNCIL, we have

signed off our draft Annual

Plan 2019-20, which will go

out for consultation from

the beginning of March

until the start of April.

This is the second year of

the 2018-2028 Long Term

Plan. We had anticipated

an average rates rise of 5.5

per cent. However, higher

than expected growth in

the city has enabled this

to be brought back to an

average of 4.96 per cent.

We continue to look for

savings. And this is where

your submissions can help

us focus our attention.

A significant part of this

year’s work is the drinking

water supply improvement

programme. We are

working towards the day

when we can remove the

chlorine from the water.

However, that won’t be

the end of the programme

as Government will be

introducing new standards

and we will need to ensure

that we meet those. Safe

and good to drink –

that’s our drinking water

mantra. There is also

SAFE: The drinking

water supply

improvement

programme will be a

considerable work still

to be done on the roads,

footpaths and parks. City

councillors spoke about the

importance of maintaining

our ‘Garden City’ and

ensuring residents are

getting the levels of service

they expect. We will

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

be looking carefully at

budgets to ensure there is

sufficient money to deliver

on those.

Another increase next

year sits with the waste

minimisation levy, due

to EcoCentral being hit

by the increased costs of

processing recyclable waste

offshore. This is a major

issue and needs a New

Zealand Inc solution.

So get ready to make

your submission.

Remember to talk to your

local community board

members, as well as city

councillors. We are all

looking forward to your

feedback.

Theatre/Arts

on a show investigating the impact of toxic masculinity

in society.

Playwright aims to break

down ‘toxic’ stereotypes

Artistic director Tom Eason wants to shine a light on the concept of toxic masculinity.

He’s writing a one man show to get people talking about the issue and its impact on

mental health and well-being. Georgia O’Connor-Harding reports

TOM EASON has always felt an

“uncomfortable” pressure to be

more masculine.

While the co-artistic director of

theatre company Two Productions

has only noticed its impact

recently, he said many males face

pressure to be masculine from

birth.

To address the harm it can cause

Eason, 31, has started writing a

solo-show called Mainman, which

aims to get people talking about

toxic masculinity.

“When we make shows like this

we are less trying to finish with a

statement . . . and more wanting to

pose the question in all of its crazy

complexity in a way that is able to

be talked about,” he said.

Looking back, when Eason

attended Christchurch Boys’ High

School, an interest in theatre led

to him being labelled a “drama

fag” by his peers.

“You definitely felt like the

third or fourth tier in that social

environment. There was the top

tier of the rugby players and

everyone else was below them,”

he said.

Fifteen years later, he noticed

the same pressure to be masculine

being imprinted on his 15-monthold

son.

“It can be as subtle as, for

example, none of the clothes our

families have bought for our son

have any colour other than blue,

black and grey.”

Looking back on his own

experiences, he said toxic

masculinity was when people

tried to get him to conform to

what they viewed as normal for

his gender.

“I think the objective of this

show is to ask the question of how

we can do the opposite of that.”

Although the show is still

in its early stages, Eason plans

to discuss jokes made by male

comedians who have been accused

of sexual misconduct – such as

well-known American-Mexican

comedian Louis C.K.

He will look at some of the jokes

made before the comedian’s fall

from grace and question what

may have been happening in his

personal life at the time the jokes

were written.

Eason said toxic masculinity

can have an impact on people’s

mental health and well-being.

Ministry of Health statistics

show between 1996-2015 suicide

rates for New Zealand men were

at least 2.5 times the rate of

females.

“That is why you see it in the

suicide rates. Even if you are part

of a group that is super-masculine,

I think they feel the same

pressure. The idea of masculinity

is toxic – if we could get rid of it, it

would be good for both groups.”

Eason said one of the most

memorable experiences of toxic

masculinity he has witnessed was

at a cafe with friends.

“I wasn’t getting coffee at the

time so I ordered green tea. The

person serving us, who was the

manager of the cafe, said to us ‘do

you want a tampon with that?’ I

was just stunned . . . afterwards

I was thinking that was just so

offensive to so many different

groups of people.”

Eason hopes the show will be

performed at the Christchurch

Arts Festival, which starts in July.

INFLUENCE: After five years as editor of The Press, Joanna

Norris moved into a new role as chief executive of

ChristchurchNZ.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

How have you found your first

year at ChristchurchNZ?

It’s been an incredible year. A

year where we’ve had to do a lot

of foundation-laying to make sure

the organisation comes together

in the way that it was intended.

It’s really cool to be working in

this role, at this time in the city’s

history so I feel really fortunate

and privileged.

Have there been any

challenges?

I think there are a number of

challenges facing Christchurch

and its been understanding

which of those to address and

in which order. It’s really been

there’s so much we could do and

so much impact we could have,

the challenge really has been

prioritisation and making sure

that we don’t spread ourselves too

thinly. We are, relatively speaking,

quite a small agency and we

need to make sure where we do

intervene, we’re doing so with the

greatest impact.

What have some highlights

been?

I think the highlights are

seeing the city come alive and

in particular the CBD. In the

time that I’ve been in this role,

we’ve had a real activation of the

central city and we’ve got a real

glimpse of what we will become

as a city. But also playing a role in

shaping, firstly in the economic

insights that the city has about

itself and understanding what

our challenges are and what

the opportunities are. But also

helping Christchurch become

proud of itself and tell that story

about who we are and that we

have this incredible city and

helping people feel proud of that

is really cool.

What attributes does the city

have that will lure people to

either live here or visit?

We’ve done a lot of work to

understand what it is that is

special about Christchurch so we

can tell an authentic story about

the advantages here. One of the

very first and fundamental things

we have is the lifestyle that we

have and the proximity we have

to our incredible environment.

Whether its the Port Hills or

the beaches and I’m very lucky

to live at the beach in Sumner.

So my kids and I and husband

and I love walking on the beach,

we’ve just got this wonderful

life. So there’s the lifestyle piece,

there’s the fact that its affordable

in comparison to other parts of

the country. We’ve built this new,

beautiful resilient city and we

have a lot of the big grown up city

amenities. We’ve got four tertiary

institutions, a skilled work force

and underpinning all of this, is

this sense of Christchurch being

able to carve a path. The way we

term it is that we’re explorers,

we always have been, we always

will be, and Christchurch has

this wonderful opportunity

to continue that sense of

exploration. All of that packaged

into one great sized city that’s easy

to get around, why wouldn’t you

live here?

to giving Christchurch direction

We’ve been through an

enormous amount as a city, a lot of

pain, and as a journalist and editor

I witnessed and heard so many

stories of pain throughout the

post-quake period. Everywhere we

looked there was sadness. It was an

incredible trauma that the city has

gone through and some members

of our community are still going

through. But the flip side of that,

we’ve had this opportunity to

reinvent who we are, rebuild the

city, build stronger, safer buildings

and that’s been a real advantage for

us now.

How did you end up living in

the city yourself?

The interesting thing for me

about Christchurch, is that

I’m not from Christchurch, I

didn’t grow up here. I grew up

in Dunedin, but I was born in

Kaitaia. My husband and I and

kids moved back here in 2012, we

made a kind of crazy decision to

move to what Christchurch was

at that time. Just before I took

this role, we had an opportunity

to move back to Wellington,

which was where we most

recently moved from but we

chose Christchurch. It’s the city

that gets under your skin and

becomes part of who you are.

When you become involved the

murder of Ben Smart

and Olivia Hope in

Marlborough.

reconstruction of the city and

telling that story as a journalist

and now in my new role, they are

once in a lifetime opportunities.

Cities are always organic, I think

that’s the thing that’s important

for Christchurch to remember.

There is no end point, there never

is for a city. Cities are by their

nature, organic and evolving.

Do you have any personal

goals for your time at

ChristchurchNZ?

People often ask me this

question, like what’s my five-year

plan, sort of thing. I have very

clear goals for this organisation,

we’ve got 10-year goals that we’re

committed to for the city. So

the answer is absolutely from a

professional point of view, but

from a personal point of view, no.

It’s really just about being as useful

to this community as I can be with

the skills and experience that I

have. Also enjoying life and taking

the time to spend with family.

How and when did your

journalism career begin?

I was studying music at Otago

University, I was doing a double

degree in English and music, I

play the violin. David Bain was

in a class of mine. We were a very

small class, there were only about

20 of us. My then boyfriend and

I at the time made the decision to

leave Dunedin, it was sort of quite

tainted by that experience (the

Bain murders). We transferred

up to Auckland University and I

finished up my English degree.

I realised in the course of that, it

was when North and South was

a very, very powerful magazine

and I just realised the power of

storytelling and how it can better

communities with these really

important stories that we tell

about ourselves. I then went to

journalism school in Auckland

and my first job was at the

Dominion Post in Wellington.

You did a stint at the Otago

Daily Times as well?

I did. I was living and working

in England, in Cambridge with

my then boyfriend, now husband.

He’s a technology writer, we met at

journalism school. There are three

couples from our class and we’re

all still married. My father was

diagnosed with terminal cancer,

my parents lived in Dunedin,

so I moved back and worked at

the ODT. In my last role [South

Island editor-in-chief for Fairfax],

I had 19 community papers in

my portfolio, so I have had a very

close contact with community

papers.

2010 and 2011 happened. We

were working very closely with

the team at The Press and in fact

on the evening of February 22,

we in Wellington helped The

Press team put out that edition

that landed on people’s driveways

on February 23. That was pretty

crazy and incredible. That night

the reporters all worked, they

filed their copy and we helped

produce that edition of The Press

from the Wellington newsroom

and that next morning that Press

was on people’s driveways. I

used to talk about that publicly

and people would cry because

that moment when no one knew

what was happening and this

was the outside world and that’s

the power of the media, it’s so

important.

Have you had any big

fumbles?

That’s the nature of news. There

have definitely been things that

I have reflected on later and

thought we could have handled

that differently or we could have

put more thought into that or I

wish we’d had more information

before we published that, we

would have been better off. That

being said, I always describe

the media as a bit of a blunt

instrument, in that you wobble

towards a position of truth

with each iteration of a story.

Journalists are not academics

sitting for three years doing a

thesis and producing a body

of work. You work to whatever

time you work to, weekly, daily

or digital, you get to the truth

and you hold those in power

accountable.

Do you miss working in the

media?

There’s a lot I miss about the

media, absolutely. But I am

also very fortunate to work

with journalists right across the

spectrum and that’s quite a treat

as well.

What do you see for the future

of journalism?

I have great hope for the

media. I think the commercial

proposition is deeply challenging

and very, very difficult in a New

Zealand environment where scale

is a challenge. There are only five

million people, there are only a

certain number of consumers

who are prepared to pay for a

product and a limited number

of advertisers. But journalism

is so fundamental to a safe and

strong society that there must

be a way through this and I

think journalism is as good now

as its ever been. Some of the

investigative work that’s done

by teams across the country by

all media agencies really makes

a difference and its absolutely

essential that the fourth estate

keeps an eye on people in power.

It has to continue.

Are you surprised or

disappointed by the moves made

by Channel Nine in Australia to

sell New Zealand assets such as

The Press?

No, media ownership

changes, it always has done. I

think when I worked for, what

was then Fairfax, I think I

worked under three different

owners in the course of my career.

I always said to my newsroom,

you just do your job, your job

is to be a journalist and hold

the powerful to account and

be a watchdog and champion.

It’s other people’s jobs to worry

about what the governance and

ownership looks like. If you’re

continually worried about what’s

around the corner, you don’t do

your job properly.

to reinvent who we are’

Do you have any advice for

any aspiring journalists who

would want to get into the

industry or young reporters?

Just stay curious. But secondly,

know the power that you have. As

a young journo, you don’t quite

understand the words that you

write have an impact and often

you don’t see that impact. It will

change someone’s behaviour, it

will happen behind the scenes

or the language that you use will

change someone’s life. Just always

be cognisant of the power that

you have both to do good and

damage.

What made you jump from

journalism to the corporate

world?

I had worked as the editor of

The Press for five years and had

overseen a lot of change in that

time. Some of that change was

really challenging to lead. I was

aware I would need to do a lot

more of that change management

as time went on. Again, I was

aware it was likely the next step

in my career at what was then

Fairfax would have been moving

back to Wellington. At the same

time as I was considering all of

this, this job became available

and people had conversations

with me about this role. So I

had to weigh all of that up and

I realised the city was at a bit

of a watershed period as the

elections were on, there was a lot

of change going on in the city. I

saw, without wanting to overstate

my relevance, an opportunity to

influence things from inside the

tent rather than observing from

the outside. I was very fortunate

that I was with a leadership

cohort within the city that had

gone through a period of the city’s

history. Then I had a chance to

play a different leadership role

in the city. It’s been interesting

observing the gendership in

the city. When I first came here

I was a bit different from the

previous editors. I would go into

these networking meetings in

the city and I would be the only

woman. It was really weird and

confronting and scary. That’s not

so much the case anymore, there

are a lot more peers who are

women. A lot of great men and

women.

Can you tell me a little bit

about your family?

I’ve got two kids who are

amazing. They’re nine and

11. My husband Blayne is a

journo, so I supposed I’ve got a

naturally affinity to journalism,

we’ve grown up together. He’s

a freelancer and he’s primary

caregiver for our kids. I think,

and he and I often talk about this,

it’s one of those things that people

don’t often talk about, is it’s really

hard to have two careers. You’ve

really got to think about that as

you start out in life and I think

it’s important for couples to be

really honest about that together

and work out how they’re going

to manage that because kids are

a full-time job in themselves. It’s

full on. We always thought that

it would get less work as they

went to school, but actually it

gets more because they get more

sophisticated in their needs. We’re

lucky and I’m lucky I get a lot of

time with the kids as well. Blayne

and I share it pretty well, although

he did go surfing this morning,

which meant that I was late for

work but that’s okay.

What do you do on a day off?

I’ve got a good work life

balance, I work pretty hard at

that. So we’ll go up into the hills,

we’ll go on tramps. We love

tramping as a family. We spent

quite a lot of time up in Hanmer.

We’re a real beach family. Blayne

has taught Evie and Ollie to surf,

they’re good wee surfers.

Gardening

Inject some colour with geraniums

• By Henri Ham

WANT TO inject some bright

colour into a super sunny spot in

your garden? How about planting

some geraniums?

These hardy, sun-loving plants

are perfect for those prime spots

in your garden that often get too

hot or are slightly too exposed for

other flowers.

Geraniums are a cute lowspreading

plant, with flowers that

push above its foliage – like little

posies.

Try violet and bulls eye mix

varieties, they bloom in pinks,

reds, and oranges, but if you’re

after a classic white they should

be in garden centres around

March.

Now, to plant your seedlings.

Choose a well-drained, moderately

sunny spot – geraniums like

four to six hours sun a day. I like

to dig some compost or general

fertiliser through the garden first,

to give them the best possible

start.

Dig small holes 8cm deep,

roughly 25 cm apart. If you’re

after suggestions on what to grow

with your geraniums, livingstone

daisies, lobelia and alyssum are

my top picks. They all like the

same conditions and look lovely

together.

Give your geraniums a good

initial watering, and keep this up

for the first few weeks to really

help them get established. Once

you’ve got them going, you can

relax a bit more on how much

you water.

In around four to six weeks

you’ll start to see come colour

coming through on top of their

dark leaves. Deadheading your

blooms will encourage more to

come through. And pinching the

stems will promote bushier rather

than leggier flowers.

If you’re not sure what pinching

is – it’s simply breaking off the top

2cm of the growing tip of a plant

to encourage it to grow out wider,

before it grows up. The same

way you pinch off the very top of

your basil (and other herbs) so it

doesn’t go to seed.

Geraniums make great bedding

plants, but are also perfect for

pots. If you plant in pots, always

start with a fresh, good-quality

potting mix.

Adding stones or old broken

pots at the bottom of the pot will

help with the drainage.

If your pots are in an exposed

concrete area think about how

hot they will get during the day.

You can always elevate them

onto some wooden batons or

bricks so they don’t conduct as

much heat.

Painting the inside of a

pot can also help retain its moisture.

Remember to check what

sort of paint or seal you’re using

first and whether it’s appropriate

for plants.

Geraniums also make for a

lovely indoor pot plant. Place

them near a window and if they’re

given enough sunlight, they can

flower all year long. Now that’s

almost plant perfection.

Keep planting lettuce seedlings to ensure supply

• By Henri Ham

LETTUCE SALADS have been a

headliner in my kitchen lately.

This hot summer heat we’ve

been having has kept me busy

watering in the garden, but there’s

been a lot of harvesting taking

place too. This also means I’ve had

to replant lettuce seedlings (every

few weeks) to continue my prolific

supply.

The good thing is, even for the

most novice of gardeners, you can’t

go wrong planting a few lettuces.

They’re simple to grow, quick to

produce and take up relatively little

room.

I plant my lettuces all year

round, but really ramp it up from

August through to February. To

ensure I don’t get bored of any one

type, I like to constantly mix up

the varieties I plant.

Buttercrunch and cos are

great for picking off their loose

leaves as you need them. Drunken

woman and great lakes are a larger,

more classic-shaped lettuce, that

I remember from my younger

days.

A new lettuce variety this summer

is tom thumb. It’s the perfect

little lettuce to pop in between

rows of other plants.

It grows small heads (about the

size of a baseball), which are ideal

as a gourmet lettuce for one.

Tom thumb has a lovely mild,

sweet taste. But the reason it’s a

great lettuce to grow at this time

of year is it tolerates high temperatures

very well, and resists bolting.

Once you’ve got your seedlings,

look for a well-drained and

sheltered place to plant them. I

like to dig in some new compost

and sheep pallets at this point too.

Then dig some little holes – 3cm

deep and 15cm apart.

After this, simply water regularly

and watch for slugs. In around

four to six weeks your tom thumbs

should be ready to be harvested.

CITY 2 SURF TRAINING PROGRAMME

WEEK 5: Look up and accept the challenge

The training programme will stay the same this week as last week

but may I suggest that you go and explore the geographical options

you have for your training. This means not only exploring your

own neighbourhood but also venturing to places like the Burwood

Plantation, the beach or the Port Hills. Of course it takes a bit more

time as you need transport so the weekend might be the best time

to do this. The best surface to run on is soft, like grass, sand or gravel;

it is easier on the legs so try and do the majority of your sessions on

these types of surfaces if possible. If you have time, venture into the

Port Hills. A good place to start is the track which runs between the

sign of the Takeha and the sign of the Kiwi. This is a gradual incline

which you can do out and back for as far as you can comfortably

go. Once you have mastered this track you can venture beyond

anywhere in the port hills. Jogging on the Port Hills walking tracks

takes a bit of concentration as the terrain underfoot can be uneven.

Walking or jogging and running uphill will automatically increase the

intensity a fraction because you use larger muscle groups. It is a type

of endurance training which will accelerate your strength and fitness

with incredible views of our beautiful city as an extra bonus. Going up,

take small steps and take your time so you stay mainly in zone 1 and

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. Initially take it easy on

the downhill. It can be hard on the legs, so go careful. At this time of

the year the beach is also an attractive option for a workout. The soft

sand will add an extra dimension and help the strength development.

On hot days go for the forest or parks as the shade provided by the

trees will protect you from the blazing sun. Hagley Park is of course

the jewel in the crown as far as parks go with lots of variety and

enough options never to have to do the same route.

If you are concerned about your health

at any stage please undergo a health

check with your GP.

TIP OF THE WEEK

Comfort during your training session will greatly

add to your enjoyment. Small issues like shoes which

do not quite fit, wrongly sized, insufficient or too

much clothing can all have big consequences like

blisters, cold exposure, heatstroke or chaffing issues.

In a previous article I have already mentioned the

importance of well-fitting shoes but the same applies

to your running shorts and top. For women there

are special sports bra’s to add to comfort and males

can prevent the much maligned “nipple rash” with

preventative taping over the affected areas.

Flynn still giving back to rugby

• By Gordon Findlater

CRUSADER NO 48 Aaron

Flynn was part of the team that

achieved a three-peat of Super

Rugby titles from 1998-2000.

The halfback’s first match for

the Crusaders ended in a loss to

the Waratahs in 1997. These days

the 49-year-old can be found in

his office at Linfield Park where

he works as Linwood’s club

manager.

Flynn made 24 appearances

for the Crusaders between 1997

and 2000. However, it should

have only been 23 caps. Late in

the stages of a match against

the Hurricanes, Flynn decided

to sub himself on instead of a

proposed change at second-five.

“I can’t remember who it was

but he couldn’t get his tracksuit

off properly so I thought, ‘oh,

this is a joke’, and I just ran

on instead . . . I said to Justin

Marshall – ‘you go to secondfive,

mate’,” said Flynn.

“I got a blasting from (assistant

coach) Steve Hansen, but I said

he was taking ages to get his

tracksuit off. There was only

about 15min to go and we were

pumping them.”

Flynn’s most prominent season

with the Crusaders came in

1998, when he started at halfback

for a majority of the campaign

– including the final which they

won against the Blues – after

Marshall suffered a serious

Achilles tendon injury early in

the year.

“I remember (coach) Wayne

Smith turning round to me when

that happened and saying ‘mate,

you better be ready’.”

Flynn can still be found

running around for Sydenham’s

golden oldies. He also plays

softball and won the B grade

competition with Albion last

year. In his younger days, he was

an infielder at premier club level

and was named in under-16 and

under-18 national tournament

teams.

“I’m 50 this year so that’s it.

I said to my wife I’m going to

finish with both sports this year,

but she reckons I said that five

years ago.”

After his professional playing

career ended in 2000, Flynn

took a role as an event manager

at the Christchurch Casino for

seven years. He then spent 11

years working in recruitment

at Tradestaff and Enterprise

Recruitment.

“That was pretty full-on

through those earthquake years.

It was just madness,” said Flynn.

He has been club manager at

Linwood since 2017. “One of the

directors at Enterprise actually

asked me to be the club manager

at Linwood because he’s on the

board at the club. Even though

I’m a Sydenham boy at heart, it

was a great opportunity. We’ve

got an awesome venue here

and it’s one of the best grounds

in Christchurch.” Placing his

allegiance with Linwood has

taken some time.

Over the Super Rugby

season, The Star will

look back each week at

some of the identities

who graced the

Crusaders jersey in the

past and discover where

they are now

His first week on the job at

Linfield Park fittingly saw the

Linwood premier team host

Sydenham.

“I was out on the back field

at Linfield with Tane Norton

and an old Linwood stalwart

went past and asked who we are

playing today. I said Linwood

and he looked at me sideways

. . . I told Tane that if I said that

again he could give me a clip

around the ear.”

Flynn’s family has strong

sporting genes. He is former

Crusaders hooker Corey Flynn’s

uncle. His mother Pat played

softball for New Zealand from

the age of 15. His brother Kieran

played rugby for Canterbury and

Southland in the 1990s. And

another brother, Jamie Flynn,

played for Southland in the

1980s.

At one stage, Sydenham’s

premier side contained five

Flynns.

Paceman makes mark in

Canterbury T20 campaign

• By Gordon Findlater

IMPOSING PACEMAN Kyle

Jamieson (left) was a shining light

with the white ball in what has

otherwise been a season to forget

for the Canterbury Kings.

Although they finished last

in the T20 Super Smash, the

2.03m right-arm quick was

the competition’s top wickettaker

with 22 – seven ahead

of Blair Tickner and Mitchell

McClenaghan.

However, Jamieson’s career

could have turned out differently

if he had not been approached by

a member of Canterbury’s most

famous cricketing family six years

ago.

The 24-year-old moved to

Christchurch from Auckland

aged 18. When he arrived, he

considered himself a top order

batsman who bowled occasional

medium pace. That quickly

changed after he was spotted

by Dayle Hadlee at an under-19

tournament.

“I started working with Dayle

and he thought it was a bit of a

waste having a six-foot-eight guy

that didn’t really bowl . . . he took

me under his wing and the rest is

history really,” said Jamieson.

After being affected by multiple

long-term foot injuries in his early

years with Canterbury, Jamieson

has been fit since December 2017.

His figures of 3-22 in

Canterbury’s final round-robin

match on Saturday helped the side

to a comfortable seven-wicket win

over Wellington. However, the

highlight of the campaign came in

January when Jamieson recorded

figures of 6-7 – the third best by a

bowler in world T20 history.

The relative consistency I

was able to put out during the

competition was pleasing,” he

said.

Jamieson’s 22 wickets in 10

T20 matches this season came

from 38.2 overs at an average of

12.68, a strike rate of 10.45, and

an economy rate of 7.27 runs

per over. His statistics make for

impressive reading compared to

the likes of Lockie Ferguson and

Scott Kuggeleijn, who have been

given opportunities with the

Black Caps in T20 matches this

summer.

Ferguson’s career T20 figures

at domestic level are an average

of 25.87, strike rate of 21.0 and an

economy rate of 7.36. Kuggeleijn’s

has a domestic average of 30.62,

strike rate of 21.2 and economy

rate of 7.63.

Since his impressive T20 season,

Jamieson has spoken with Black

Caps coach Gary Stead about

where he stands in the national

ranks. “I think I’m going in a

relatively good direction at the

moment, and if I can continue on

that kind of path, then I’m sure a

chance will come down the track,”

he said.

Highly-rated Australian

guard joins Rams squad

THE Canterbury Rams

have signed a second

highly-rated Australian

guard ahead of this

year’s NBL in the form of

Cameron Gliddon.

The shooting guard is

averaging 13.6 points per

game for the Brisbane

Bullets season making him

the 17th top scorer in the

Australian NBL.

He will join new Rams

coach Mick Downer – who

is the Bullets’ assistant

coach – and fellow Australian

Emmett Naar as the

Rams’ second import. The

pair are likely to combine

to make up the teams

starting backcourt.

Gliddon is known for his

scoring ability, especially

from three-point range

and his experience and

leadership is sure to have

been one of the key reasons

the Rams pursued him.

“I’ve always been interested

in coming across the

pond and getting involved

in the league. I’m very

grateful that Canterbury

reached out and asked

me to join the team. I

look forward to getting to

Christchurch and helping

the team be successful on

and off the court,” said

Gliddon.

As current assistant

coach for the Brisbane

Bullets, Rams head coach,

Mick Downer knows what

Gliddon brings to the table.

“We are so excited at the

Rams with the addition of

one of Australia’s premier

shooting guards,” said

• By Gordon Findlater

SOME TIDY bowling at

the death from Robbie

Deans helped Canterbury

to their third straight

national over 60s cricket

title last week.

Canterbury won by one

run at Upper Hutt. The

former Crusaders and

Wallabies coach was

given the ball for the final

over against Northern

Districts. Chasing 220,

Northern required eight

runs from the over for

victory.

“It was pretty desperate

stuff. The fact I hadn’t

bowled properly in a long

time made it even more

desperate,” said Deans.

After conceding two

runs from the first delivery,

Deans replied by clean

bowling Northern’s No 8.

The next two balls

NEW MAN: Cameron Gliddon will join a Rams team

with strong Australian links. ​

Downer.

“He’s been a proven

performer over and over

in clutch moments in the

ANBL and played a key

role as the captain of the

Cairns Taipans before

venturing south to join the

Brisbane Bullets.”

Gliddon attended

Concordia University in

the United States where

in his senior year he led

the Eagles to the NAIA

produced singles, one

of which came from a

dropped catch. A dot ball

from the fifth delivery

meant Northern required

four runs from the final

ball and three to tie. A

swipe across the line saw

the ball fall into a gap

at mid-wicket before a

run-out as Northern were

attempting a third run.

Earlier in the week,

The Star

national championship,

going on to be named the

All-Tournament MVP.

Following his college

career Gliddon returned to

Australia and was named

the ANBL rookie of the

year in 2013. He has also

represented Australia,

where he helped the Boomers

win gold at both the

FIBA Asia Cup and the

2018 Commonwealth

Games.

Deans bowls Canty to victory

THREE-PEAT: Canterbury have gone undefeated

at the national over 60s cricket tournament for

the last three years.

Canterbury had pool

play wins over Central

Districts, Otago and

Northern.

Deans now plans to turn

out for the New Zealand

over 60s side in three

matches against Australia

starting later this month.

But first he will have to

overcome a finger injury

which has him sporting a

splint.

IT WAS A case of mission

accomplished, I was asked

by my daughter if I would

help her shift flats.

Along with a stack of

shoes that I didn’t think

was possible for a 24-yearold

to accumulate, there

was the usual amount

of furniture – duchess,

cabinets and bed. I had the

perfect vehicle to carry out

the process – a Hyundai

Santa Fe – a large sevenseat

sport utility vehicle,

of course, by lowering the

rear rows of seats you get a

very healthy wagon section

which swallowed everything

we could load into it,

mattress aside.

That’s one of the reasons

why SUVs have become

so popular, they are adaptable

and versatile and, in

the Santa Fe’s case, it is also

a plush luxury car which

impresses with its refinement.

As history has served to

prove, I missed a drive in

the previous generation

model, circumstances constantly

conspiring against

me getting into the vehicle.

That aside, the latest generation

model is simply

stunning, it is grand in its

design and manufacture.

The new Santa Fe is allnew,

it lands here in four

variants, petrol and diesel,

all with four-wheel-drive

starting from $59,990.

Bearing in mind the old

V6 engine is gone, today’s

petrol-powered Santa Fe

is a 2.4-litre four-cylinder

unit.

This evaluation focuses

on the range-topping

Limited with Hyundai’s

magnificent 2.2-litre diesel

engine. The four-cylinder

turbocharged unit is rated

at 147kW (3800rpm) with

440Nm of torque available

from 1570rpm to 2750rpm.

Not only are these outputs

impressive in terms

of flexibility and outright

grunt, it is one of the

smoothest engines you are

ever likely to find in a vehicle

of this type.

The engine is hooked

to a recently-developed

eight-speed automatic

transmission, something

that is shared with

Hyundai’s partnership with

Kia. Interaction between

the engine and gearbox is

smooth and seamless, and

the gear ratios are structured

so that they work

efficiently with the engine’s

power and torque bands,

HYUNDAI SANTA FE: Spacious interior.

especially so the mid-range

rev spread.

In this form, the Santa

Fe is relatively quick for

a vehicle which weighs

in at almost two-tonne.

According to my stopwatch

it will make 100km/h from

a standstill in 9.4sec and

80km/h to 120km/h in

6.2sec.

As you would expect in

new-age SUV, the Santa Fe

is fitted with the latest technologies

for safety, along

with a full raft of features

for comfort and convenience.

• Price – Hyundai

Santa Fe Limited,

$82,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4770mm;

width, 1890mm;

height, 1705mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive,

2188cc,

147kW, 440Nm,

eight-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.4sec

• Fuel usage –

7.5l/100km

At $82,990, it really

needs to be well-specced,

it is competing with the

major European brands,

and if you throw in a newcomer

to the large SUV

market – Holden’s Acadia –

then Hyundai know it has

to provide a good level of

fitment.

Major items of specification

include full leather

trim with electrically

adjustable seats up front

(also heated). There is

head-up display, paddle

shift gear selectors and

the choice of several drive

modes which the driver

can use to suit his or her

driving preference. These

are on top of items that you

would normally expect to

find in a top-grade model.

Hyundai has upped the

ante in terms of efficiency

in this age where fuel prices

play such a big part in the

buying choice. The Santa

Fe returned some interesting

fuel usage information

during my time with the

test car. At 100km/h in top

gear the big diesel sips fuel

instantaneously at around

seven-litres per 100km

(41mpg), turning over at

just 1500rpm. A test average

of 9l/100km (31mpg)

is respectable for vehicle

weight, and compares well

to Hyundai’s combined

cycle claim of 7.5l/100km

(37mpg).

Not only is the diesel

Santa Fe an economical

choice, it will offer the versatility

you would expect

from a family wagon. It

cruises the highway with

dignity, yet it also tackles

the hard yards when presented

with an off-the-seal

excursion, although at just

185mm, the driver does

need to keep in mind that

ground clearance isn’t huge.

The suspension is fully

independent all-round –

struts up front and multiple

links on the rear – the

spring and dampers are

only firmed moderately.

There’s no mistaking the

suspension locates four

driveshafts, but the ride is

far from abrasive.

It was good to be back

behind the wheel of a Santa

Fe. I’ve driven a lot of

Hyundai product in recent

months and it all stands up

to be counted in terms of

quality and sophistication.

The new Santa Fe

lands at a time when

sales in the large SUV

sector are still rising. It has

a lot of competition but

with such a broad range

there is a Santa Fe for all

budgets.

Fix those minor

defects

Start out front, cleaning, clearing and decluttering

the yard to make a good impression on buyers.

It’s a rare house that doesn’t have

defects. Even newly renovated ones

can have features that detract for

buyers. But there are ways for sellers

to deflect attention from them without

pretending they’re not there. The three

main ways of dealing with defects are:

1. Fix them.

2. Draw the eye away from them.

3. Use them as a selling point.

Simple defects can be fixed easily.

Start out front. Overgrown bushes can

be trimmed, or replaced with a few

matching plants, old fences and front

doors can be painted or stained, and

the paths cleaned.

Do this even if a property is a do-up.

You want to give the impression that

buyers can move into the house and

chip away at the work in their own

time.

If you have time and money, paint

sills and eaves using accents.

Inside, the first thing buyers see is

the hallway, which can be brightened

up with a lick of paint. The neutral

paint trick can also be used to paint

over dated wallpaper, completely

changing the look and feel of a tired

house.

Bathrooms and kitchens are

important to buyers, and the eye settles

on vanities and benches. These can be

resurfaced relatively quickly to give a

modern look.

Oamaru

NEW LISTINGS

If the seller can’t repaint or tile

the bathroom bring in high quality

matching towels, which become a

feature in the room and draw the eye

from the less than desirable walls and

features. Nice vases and flowers will do

the same.

Replacing handles and knobs to

draw attention away from the units

themselves. This reduces the number

of “I have to do this” thoughts in

potential buyers’ minds.

Drawing the eye away from a

multitude of sins is exactly the thing

to do.

If you see an empty house the eye

always goes to marks on the carpet

and walls and this will lower the price

expectation.”

Drawing the eye to the furniture and

furnishings, creates better flow, and de

cluttering makes buyers feel the home

would be a nice place to live in.

The other way to handle the

property’s defects is to raise them with

the buyer before they see them.

If the carpet is bad, for example,

you can say: “Hey, they were going to

replace the carpet but they decided to

leave it to you to choose a new carpet

and priced it accordingly.”

Finally, good old fashioned elbow

grease is essential in all properties

to remove those sins that are simply

cleanable.

EXCITING news! Concrete work for the

next stage of the Richmond Club’s

redevelopment is underway. This stunning

new architecturally designed building is

going to be impressive.

The building will serve as the main Club

facility,” said Jimmy Summerfield, general

manager. “As well as a 500 capacity

Members Lounge, it will accommodate a

restaurant, bistro, three international grade

squash courts, a multi-purpose function

room, pool and snooker hall, and a live

entertainment venue with pull down

screens for live sport.”

Jimmy, a born and bred Cantabrian with

a solid background in hospitality, was

appointed the role of general manager at the

end of last year. Prior to this the

internationally award winning Mixiologist

ran his own hospitality businesses including

the well-respected Flying Burrito Brothers.

“Clubs need to develop for the future

without forgetting their history. We expect

the redevelopment to appeal to a wider

demographic. What we are offering will be

fantastic, making us one of the best clubs in

NZ.”

Taking pride in understanding customers

needs, Jimmy says the club will offer a more

family friendly environment while

continuing to promote club traditions and

sporting sections.

New member’s welcome. Enquire now

about joining this innovative club.
