‘WE COULDN’T

PREDICT HE

WOULD KILL

AGAIN’

Police say there was nothing to indicate convicted

killer Paul Wilson, who was found with knives in the

boot of his car after being stopped at a central city

checkpoint, would murder again.

Hours after being processed for drink driving he raped and

murdered Merivale woman Nicole Tuxford (above) – eerily similar

to his savage killing of a West Coast woman in the 1990s.

Fountain cascading water again

Town hall’s

symbolic

neighbour

BACK IN ACTION: The iconic Ferrier Fountain outside the

town hall was turned on yesterday after it was damaged in

the earthquake eight years ago.

THE ICONIC Ferrier Fountain

has been turned back on.

The artwork reclaimed its

home next to Victoria Square as

part of the town hall’s restoration.

Staff from contractor Hawkins

had been testing the restored

fountain over the last week and

turned it back on yesterday,

ahead of the town hall reopening

on Saturday.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said the

return of the fountain to its rightful

spot marks another major

step in the town hall rebuild.

“I am looking forward to the

fountain’s return,” she said. “I

can remember seeing the famous

El Alamein Fountain in Sydney

when I was a child, and I thought

that was amazing. However, only

a few years later, when the Ferrier

Fountain was revealed, it was

even better.”

The fountain became one

of the most iconic images of

Christchurch and it is very special

seeing it returned to our city.”

Installed in 1972, the threehead

fountain and adjacent

southern terraces were badly

damaged during the September

4, 2010, and February 22, 2011,

earthquakes. However, the

retaining wall was largely unaffected.

The fountain was donated by

two of the city’s most well-known

benefactors, Claude Jack Ferrier

and his wife, Marjorie, the

daughter of Robert McDougall.

Wilson lay in wait for victim

POLICE ARE defending the

actions of officers who stopped

convicted killer and rapist Paul

Wilson for drink driving hours

before he went on to kill again.

Two knives were found in the

boot of Wilson’s car when he was

stopped at a police checkpoint

on Bealey Ave about 10.30pm on

April 6.

After Wilson failed a breath

test, police took the knives and

the keys to the car, and he left,

taking a taxi to 27-year-old

Nicole Tuxford’s house on Exeter

St, Merivale.

Wilson, who goes by the name

Paul Pounamu Tainui, lay in wait

for eight-hours overnight, before

raping and murdering her.

He pleaded guilty to sexual

violation in the High Court

yesterday and had earlier pleaded

guilty to the life coach’s murder.

Justice Cameron Mander has

indicated a sentence date of

March 28.

In a statement, Canterbury

District Commander Superintendent

John Price said Wilson

informed police at the checkpoint

about the knives in his

vehicle.

These knives were secured

in the vehicle’s boot and police

retained the keys so he did not

have access to them.”

He said Wilson was not in

breach of his parole conditions

when he was stopped.

The experienced staff involved

were also satisfied with the explanation

he gave for the knives,

which was that he needed them

for work. Tainui had not come

to police attention as an offender

during the several years he had

been on parole,” Superintendent

Price said.

“Staff did not and could not

predict his intentions when he

left the checkpoint that night.”

He said his behaviour at the

checkpoint gave no cause for

concern. However, the tragedy

has had a “deep impact” on the

officers involved.

“Police are committed to

working with our justice sector

partners to identify any learnings

which might arise from this tragedy,”

Superintendent Price said.

There is no certainty, however,

that anything could have made a

GUILTY: Nicole Tuxford’s killer has been revealed as Paul Wilson, a man previously found

guilty of the rape and murder of West Coast woman Kimberly Schroder in 1995.

difference to this tragic outcome,

given the specific circumstances

involved that night.”

The shocking news that

Wilson had committed a second

murder – 24 years after he raped

and murdered former girlfriend

Kimberly Jean Schroder in

Hokitika – was too much for Ms

Schroder’s father.

Gary Schroder, 67, died in a

suspected suicide just hours after

Wilson made his first court appearance

on April 10 last year.

“Paul Wilson now has the

blood of two young ladies on

his hands. And also the blood

of my dearly beloved [relative],”

one family member told the NZ

Herald.

Wilson was convicted and

jailed in 1995 for the rape and

murder of Ms Schroder the previous

May.

A 31-year-old sickness beneficiary

at the time, Wilson visited

Ms Schroder’s flat and tied up

her male flatmate.

When his girlfriend came

home, he cut her hands during a

confrontation, before cutting off

her jeans and raping her.

He then stabbed her in the

neck after she made comments

about relationships with other

men.

Wilson was sentenced to 15

years non-parole, although on

appeal that was reduced to 13

years.

His parole was granted on his

fifth time of asking in December

2010, with his behaviour

described as “exemplary and

faultless”.

He was released in January

2011 into a residential programme

which included at least

one year of intensive therapy.

His release conditions also

permanently banned him from

visiting the West Coast or

contacting the Schroder family,

and he is subject to the “standard

conditions” of parole for life,

which includes recall to prison if

he is deemed an “undue risk to

the safety of the community”.

Wilson, now aged 54, has spent

the last few years living and

working in Christchurch.

He had been living in a tidy

red-brick townhouse in Aranui,

the NZ Herald reported.

He left at around 6am every

weekday for his job at a scrap

metal merchants on the other

side of Christchurch.

Miss Tuxford had just embarked

on a new career as a life

coach and spiritual guide when

she was murdered.

Miss Tuxford had been training

for two years with the Phoenix

Light Foundation to become

a life coach.

Wilson was described as a

model neighbour, keeping his

place tidy and always stopping to

chat with his elderly residents.

“I’m very upset by this,” one

woman told the NZ Herald.

“I liked [the man]. He was always

friendly, chatty. He was also

a very private person.”

Another neighbour said the

man worked long hours but

would always stop and say hello.

“It’s very distressing actually,”

she said.

They say life appeared to have

been going well for Wilson.

He had a solid job, recently

bought a silver Audi, which his

neighbours all thought was “a bit

flash”.

Nicole Tuxford

But they didn’t know anything

about where he’d come from –or

his dark past.

He drank at the nearby Mc-

Kenzies Hotel on Pages Rd where

he was “just another local”.

It’s understood that Wilson,

armed with a knife, broke into

Tuxford’s house some time on

the morning of April 7.

The crime scene closely

mirrored that of the horrific

Hokitika murder years earlier,

the Herald has been told.

Fleeing in her $2000 Toyota

Corolla, Wilson was involved in

a minor traffic accident.

Police officers took his details

but he was allowed to go. There

was nothing sinister in it, it appeared.

But hours later when the Exeter

St bloodbath was discovered,

the small prang suddenly took

on a new meaning.

Police officers soon tracked

down Wilson.

He was arrested soon after and

charged the next day.

News of his arrest soon filtered

over the Southern Alps – and

back to the Schroder family who

he destroyed all those years ago.

It was all too much for Gary

Schroder.

Nancy Schroder, the mother

of Ms Schroder, told the Herald

in January 2014 that it made her

“bloody sick” to learn the killer

was out celebrating while the

family continued to grieve.

The family had strongly

opposed Wilson’s parole and

doubted his remorse.

Building consents keep up with population growth

THE NUMBER of building

consents granted for new houses

is keeping pace with a predicted

80,000 rise in Christchurch’s

population over the next 30

years.

The city’s population will rise

from about 388,000 to 468,000

by 2048, according to Statistics

New Zealand population

projections.

This means there will be

an estimated extra 52,800

households needing a place to

live.

In order to accommodate

this growth, the city council’s

monitoring and research team

has calculated at least 1700

housing consents need to be

granted each year for the next 30

years.

The number of housing

consents has slowed over the past

two years, returning

to pre-quake levels

following record highs

during the post-earthquake

construction boom.

City council data shows about

13,000 additional new dwellings

were granted consents between

2012 and 2018.

This equates to an average 2000

additional new dwellings each

year.

Monitoring and research team

leader Kath Jamieson said the

rate of consents has returned to

steady pre-quake levels but it’s

positive that it is high enough to

meet future demand.

The current number of

new dwellings consented has

been consistent at about 2000 a

year, which is 30 per cent

higher than what’s required to

meet our District Plan housing

target of 23,700 additional

households around the city by

2028,” she said.

“It’s reassuring that we

are able to accommodate the

growing number of people

wanting to live in our city.

Construction in Christchurch

is strong and it has returned to

growth-led levels after the

boom phase of earthquake

rebuilds.”

Killer was Bain’s groomsman

IT COULD finally be revealed

yesterday that doublemurderer

Paul Wilson was a

groomsman at David Bain’s

wedding.

Bain said he was “shocked

to the core” to hear his

groomsman had committed a

second murder.

Paul Wilson met Bain in jail

and was a groomsman when

Bain wed primary school

teacher Liz Davies at a winery

outside Christchurch in

January 2014.

The killer was part of a

three-man bridal party, which

also included long-term Bain

champion Joe Karam’s sons

Matthew and Richard.

Speaking to the Herald

at the time, Joe Karam said

Wilson was Bain’s best and

oldest friend.

Bain and Wilson met while

working in the prison kitchen,

a former inmate who shared a

cell with Bain said.

The pair were two of the

longest-serving inmates in

their section of the prison and,

though other inmates came

and went, the two remained

close.

FRIENDS: Paul

Wilson (right)

at David Bain’s

wedding. Yesterday

Bain’s long-time

advocate Joe

Karam (above) said

Bain was shocked

that Wilson would

kill again.

They sort of naturally

became ... very close friends.

The single person he [Bain]

has spent the most time with

over the past 18 years is Paul

Wilson.”

Karam, long-time advocate

for Bain, says Bain is

distressed Wilson inflicted

such terrible disaster on the

victim and her family.

He says Bain thought his

friend was managing life well

and there was no indication he

wasn’t. Since his 2011 release,

Wilson had reintegrated himself

into society, Karam said.

“He’s done tremendous work

to rehabilitate himself. He’s

got a job and qualifications.”

In May 1995, Bain was

convicted on five counts of

murder following the brutal

deaths of his parents, Robin

and Margaret Bain and

three of their four children,

Arawa, Laniet and Stephen, in

Dunedin in 1994.

He was sentenced to life in

prison with a minimum nonparole

period of 16 years.

In 2007, a success appeal to

the Privy Council, declared

there had been a ‘substantial

miscarriage of justice’ and

Bain was released on bail.

A retrial in June 2009

saw Bain acquitted of all

charges.

Unsuspecting men targeted online

Fire rages, homes at risk

Gangs setting

them up with

young women

• By Sophie Cornish

GANGS ARE using women

as young as 16 to target

unsuspecting men who are then

being beaten, kidnapped and

robbed.

The tactic is called “honeytrapping.”

Police say women are reaching

out to men online who arrange to

meet them. Gang members and

associates then get involved.

In late December, a 45-year-old

was beaten and robbed of his

car, cellphone and wallet after he

picked up two 17-year-olds from

a Woolston address. He had met

one of them online.

After driving for a short time,

the teenagers asked him to

pull over so they could have a

cigarette.

Detective Sergeant Daniel

Isherwood said two men

associated with the Tribesmen

gang pulled up in a vehicle.

The 45-year-old was then

allegedly kicked in the head

through the window, while the

TRAP: Police say women are reaching out to men online

and arranging to meet them, and then gang members and

their associates get involved.

other man climbed into the

passenger seat and punched him

in the head.

He was then forced into the

backseat of his car and told to sit

on his hands while being driven

around the city. He was taken

back to his own house, where the

alleged offenders took a Holden

Commodore.

He was also told he owed them

$5000. He did not pay the money

and went to the police.

Two brothers have been

charged with aggravated robbery

and kidnapping.

Police are also investigating

whether there is an online link to

a brutal attack on a 59-year-old

just over three weeks ago.

He was punched, kicked and

stomped at his Rolleston home by

gang members and associates.

His cellphone, wallet, four

firearms, a Ford Falcon, a Harley

Davidson motorcycle and a

laptop were stolen.

Police arrested Black Power

gang member William Hewinson

in relation to the incident, who

has since pleaded guilty in the

district court to charges of

aggravated robbery, kidnapping,

burglary and unlawful possession

of firearms.

Two men and a 21-year-old

woman have been charged with

the same offences.

Detective Sergeant Isherwood

emphasised the gang tactics

were not widespread and victims

were only a “small part” of the

community.

They look for any opportunity

really, any weakness . . . these

victims are seen as an easy

target,” he said.

Detective Sergeant Isherwood

is also concerned that young

people associated with gangs

may not realise how serious

the penalties are for aggravated

robbery. “If a senior gang

member is asking you to partake

in an activity which involved

threats, extortion and the

harming of people, the likely

outcome for you is time in

prison,” he said.

The convictions for aggravated

robbery and/or kidnapping

will likely result in lengthy

terms of imprisonment, both of

which carry maximum terms of

imprisonment of 14 years.

“That’s not an outcome

anyone wants to see for these

young guys. We are open to

help those who are interest in

employment options, other than

getting involved with the gangs.

Police work with a number of

external agencies who assist with

this.

These recent arrests should

send a clear message to those

involved in gangs that they

should think very carefully

before carrying out this type

of offending,” said Detective

Sergeant Isherwood.

He is calling for victims of

this behaviour to come forward.

“Police are willing to support

any victims of this offending

and encourage anyone to come

forward and speak with us. We

have a good resolution rate for

those who speak with us about

this.”

reports on its $167

million restoration

THE ORIGINAL curtains have

been washed and rehung,

lighting is back in place, marble

floors cleaned and the restored

town hall is almost ready to reopen

its doors to the public.

The $167 million repair

of the 47-year-old Warren

and Mahoney-building will

be officially opened by Mayor

Lianne Dalziel with architect

Sir Miles Warren and two of

Maurice Mahoney’s greatgrandchildren

helping cut the

ribbon on Saturday.

Public events will be held

over the weekend from noon

for people to visit the Douglas

Lilburn Auditorium, the Avon

Room, the Victoria and Limes

Rooms.

The original white marble,

dark timber and red carpeting

of the 1972 venue has been preserved

– including the Rainbow

Pieces mural by Pat Hanley,

which was commissioned in 1971

by Sir Miles.

Above the main entrance to

the building on Kilmore St,

the city’s coat of arms has been

reinstated.

RESTORED: The $167 million repair of the

Warren and Mahoney-designed town hall is

nearly complete.

Ms Dalziel said she remembers

going to the first open day in

1972.

“I would have been about

12-years-old. I will never forget

that day. I hope you bring your

children and create new memories.”

City councillor and Vbase

board chairman, which runs the

town hall, Tim Scandrett said he

can’t wait for visitors to see the

reopened venue.

There are so many beautiful

features in the building for

people to be reunited with when

they step back inside. It will be

a place of memories, but it’s also

a venue with fantastic facilities

that will host exciting events

and performances well into the

future.”

The Community Pride Garden &

open to all residents and businesses

in Christchurch, making competition

tough, and wins a real coup.

The Russley Village yet again wowed

the judges with its gardening prowess,

scooping up a number of well-deserved

accolades in the recent Summer Garden

Competition.

The Russley gardens received the top

honour of the competition, winning the

Ruske Cup - the premiere garden prize.

Also awarded to the Village was the

Howman Cup; an award dedicated to

outstanding flats and townhouse gardens

in a retirement village complex.

These wonderful achievements were

in fact just the beginning for the Village

as it also won: the Peter Lawrence

Challenge Trophy First Prize under

the Retirement Village Category and

the Howman Cup First Prize for a

Townhouse Garden in a Retirement

Village.

Village residents were also recognised

for their green fingers and dedication

with a second prize and third prize in

Water, waste

boss leaves

city council

• By Julia Evans

JOHN MACKIE has resigned

from his position as head of three

waters and waste, the city council

has confirmed.

Mr Mackie’s last day of

employment is March 1 and he is

currently on leave, acting general

manager city services Carolyn

Gallagher said. “The council

intends to recruit in due course.”

It comes after Mr Mackie sued

former mayor Garry Moore last

year for $500,000.

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 it had

cost him $20,000 in legal fees.

Mr Mackie was appointed head of

three waters and waste in

2016, which runs the city’s water

supply, stormwater and sewerage

systems.

He remains 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.

• By Julia Evans

MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel’s

frustration over being left out

of the loop on big city projects

has prompted clarification by

rebuild agency Otakaro Ltd.

Ms Dalziel learned through

the news media, Otakaro had

selected Australian company

CPB Contractors as a preferred

contractor the $300 million

Metro Sports Facility.

“I simply

made the point

that I was

frustrated, as

everyone else,

that we don’t

have access to

information,

because we are

not building

the Metro

Sports Facility,” Ms Dalziel told

The Star.

Ōtākaro says it did not tell

the city council it had chosen a

preferred contractor until after

it was published by Stuff, as

council executives on the Metro

Sports Facility governance group

requested 48 hours notice of any

public announcements.

“We have not made a public

announcement about the Metro

Sports Facility and we do not

intend to do so until the cost

and time frame are confirmed

and the contract is awarded,” an

Ōtākaro spokesperson said.

At the last city council meeting,

Ms Dalziel said she was

irritated the council wasn’t told.

But she understood it was in the

media before it has been publicly

announced.

On Tuesday, Ōtākaro went

through the process of publicly

announcing international venue

management company AEG

Ogden as the operator for the

$445 million convention centre,

Te Pae, due to open in 2020.

City council general manager

From Sunday 24 February, you’ll need to plan your

travel around late night tunnel closures.

These are essential to both install and test a new fire protection

system inside the tunnel.

Work on this $28.7 million project is expected to be completed

by April/May 2019.

Traffic lane closures are timed for late night/early morning

on the lightest tunnel traffic days of the week, that is Sunday,

Monday and Tuesday.

In conjunction with the late night tunnel closures, we are

carrying out maintenance on SH74 (Tunnel Road) to ensure

fewer nights of disruption for motorists and residents. Work

includes replacing some guardrails and road resurfacing work

between Port Hills and Horotane Valley overpasses as well.

Lyttelton-bound traffic into the tunnel for the 10-minute openings

will be unaffected. Traffic leaving the tunnel towards Christchurch

will have to exit onto SH76 Port Hills Road.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Battle to keep chlorine out

of water could cost $495m

• By Julia Evans

THE CITY’S bid to keep the

water chlorine-free may cost

ratepayers $495 million over the

next 10 years.

The city council is anticipating

changes to the Drinking Water

Standards by the Government,

which would mean infrastructure

would need to be improved.

“Including

a need to

demonstrate

high quality

infrastructure,

alongside comprehensive

risk

management

practices. In

David

Adamson

order to avoid

the need to

have residual

disinfection

(usually chlorine) in the water

supply,” city council general

manager city services David

Adamson said.

“If our water supply network

isn’t of a sufficiently high standard,

we may not be able to demonstrate

that our water is safe.”

There is currently $495 million

budgeted in the Long Term Plan

over 10 years for improvements

to the water supply as part of

the city council’s infrastructure

strategy.

“Key projects include $279

million for water supply mains

renewals, $36 million for water

supply submains renewals and

$36 million for well renewals and

to ensuring infrastructure meets any changes to the

Government’s Drinking Water standards.

head works,” Mr Adamson said.

A report on what work is

needed to improve the security

of the entire water network is

due to go to city councillors later

this year.

The report will consider the

whole water supply network

including the source water, the

wells, the pump stations, suction

tanks, storage reservoirs

as well as the pipe network and

connections to our residential

and commercial customers,” Mr

Adamson said.

But a timeline of work will

remain unknown until the

changes to the Drinking Water

Standards are finalised.

The major issue for the city’s

water supply pipes is that

some are reaching the end of

their useful lives, Mr Adamson

said.

Pipes are graded from one to

five, with one being as new and

five being very poor and expected

to fail in one to two years.

“Thirteen per cent of our water

supply network is condition

grade five. These poor condition

pipes are more prone to breaking

and leaking, which increases

the amount we need to spend

repairing our pipes,” Mr Adamson

said.

An update to city councillors

on the progress of well head

remediation work is expected at

its meeting next week.

Police will be in force at festival

• By Sophie Cornish

AN INCREASED police

presence will be deployed

around Hagley Park this

weekend for the Electric Avenue

festival.

In previous years, assaults and

drug-related issues have ensued

from the concert, which is expecting

15,000 attendees this year.

In 2017, Amelia Rayner, 29,

was left in an induced coma after

she was attacked when walking

home from the festival.

Ms Rayner had her trachea

crushed after being punched

in the throat, when she and her

boyfriend were approached by

three men as they crossed the

Armagh St bridge.

Last year, 13 people were admitted

to Christchurch

Hospital following the event

after taking the class C drug

ecstasy.

Director of team event

Callam Mitchell said this

year there will be an increased,

co-ordinated police deployment

at the event, with greater

presence in the surrounding

streets.

CHANGES: The city council will have control of its District

Plan back on March 18. It will then be able to make

changes such as adding the clause, which meant property

owners in flood risk areas, were unable to build or extend

homes.

Council soon to

get back control

of District Plan

THE CITY council is getting

control of its District Plan back.

Power will be given back to the

city council from March 18 so it

can manage and change the plan

for the first time in eight years.

After the earthquakes, an order

was made through

the Canterbury

Earthquake Recovery

Act to fast track the

District Plan review.

While the order

is still in place the

city council has been

unable to initiate any

plan changes, other

than through the

Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Act. It

was not due to expire

until 2021.

In December, Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Minister

Megan Woods approved the city

council’s request to change the

District Plan through the act to

include a missing clause.

The clause meant property

owners in New Brighton, Southshore

and Redcliffs, deemed at

Megan Woods

risk of flooding, were unable to

build or extend homes.

The city council was also

investigating changing rules in

the District Plan regarding high

density developments in innercity

fringe suburbs.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel

said getting the District

Plan back is an important

step forward for the

city.

“We have come a long

way since the Land Use

Recovery Plan was put

in place and the time is

now right for us be able

to use normal planning

processes to manage our

District Plan.”

Dr Woods said it was

a return back to local leadership.

“I’m a strong believer that the

best future for Christchurch is

one where we return to local

leadership over the future of our

city,” she said.

Dr Woods said it was a sign

that the city is moving out of its

rebuild phase and looking to its

future.

Environment Canterbury

ANNUAL PLAN 2019-20

E19/7226

Environment Canterbury is considering its 2019-20

Annual Plan.

While the plan largely aligns with the most recent

Long-Term Plan, small changes to our fees and charges

policy and our revenue and financing policy are being

considered. Increased funding of public transport to

match funding from NZTA and increased funding in water

management, pest control and biodiversity are also being

considered, as well as a reduction in air quality funding.

These will impact on some ratepayers, depending on

their location, when the 2019-20 Regional Council

rate is confirmed.

Racing inquiry evidence battle

• By Sophie Cornish

THE RACING Integrity Unit

has won a battle to obtain

evidence in the Operation Inca

harness racing scandal – for

now.

Evidence gathered against the

multiple defendants was not able

to be passed on to RIU by police,

due to the fact it was obtained

through a surveillance device

warrant.

The RIU is

responsible

for conducting

its own

investigation

and making

prosecutions

for breaches

Jonathon

Eaton

under the

Harness Racing

Rules.

Last week, the RIU won an

appeal in the High Court at

Christchurch, meaning the defendants

will be legally required

to hand over the evidence

against them to the RIU.

The RIU argued the defendants

are required under Harness

Racing Rules to comply with a

request by a racecourse inspector

to supply information within

their knowledge or possession.

However, one of the defendant’s

lawyer, Jonathon Eaton

QC, said the ruling can be

reviewed and a decision will be

made soon whether or not this

will happen.

The defendants argued against

handing over the information,

saying the request was unreasonable,

citing the New Zealand

Bill of Rights Act 1990, saying

they are protected against unreasonable

search and seizure.

They also argued the request

for the information was

too broad and that request

amounts to an “unlawful

fishing expedition,” a legal term

meaning their purpose is to

interrogate a person or their

property in order to gain useful

information.

The judicial committee consisting

of Justice Lynton Stevens

and Professor Geoff Hall found

that without access to this type

of information, “the RIU’s

ability to investigate will be

impeded.”

Last year, 13 harness racing

figures appeared before the

courts facing charges in the

race-fixing investigation.

The charges mainly relate to

race-fixing, with two others

facing drugs charges.

• By Sophie Cornish

POLICE ARE warning people to

not “take a gamble” with a new

website which allows them to

calculate their blood alcohol level

before driving.

Drunkcalc.com was created by

Christchurch’s Ashley Thorne-

Jeffrey. It uses an algorithm to

estimate your blood alcohol level

by using information

about your weight,

height, gender,

amount of drinks

and food consumed

and the length of

time spent drinking.

It then tells you if

you are too drunk.

However, police

are recommending

people do not rely on websites

Ashley

Thorne-

Jeffrey

like this. “Our position is simple

– if you are going to drink, don’t

drive. We would rather anyone

who has had a drink decide to get

a taxi, a ride with a friend, or stay

the night, rather than take a gamble

and potentially put themselves

or others at risk,” said a police

spokesman.

Mr Thorne-Jeffrey created the

website after being alarmed by the

statistics around drink drivingrelated

deaths.

Residents turn out

over liquor store bid

• By Louis Day

REDCLIFFS residents

are questioning how the

proposed liquor store

on Main Rd will achieve

the fine wine and spirits

experience promised by the

owner.

More than 50 residents

attended a public meeting

about the liquor store

application at St Andrews

Anglican Church on

Thursday.

Store owner Jugraj Singh

assured residents the

off-licence would sell fine

wine and spirits and offer a

range of delicatessen goods.

However, residents

questioned how Mr Singh

would achieve what he has

promised with a store that

is only 62 sq m.

Mr Singh was unsure

exactly how much space he

would have in the store for

the delicatessen but said it

was something he wanted

to try.

St Andrews reverend

Thomas Brauer said he

supported what Mr Singh

was pitching but did not

see how it related to the

application.

Mr Singh’s original

application proposed

CHANGE: An application has been made to turn 1/87

Main Rd, which is currently occupied by the Bloom

Room Florist, into a fine wine and spirits store.

turning 1/87 Main Rd

into Thirsty Liquor

Redcliffs. However, Mr

Singh changed the name

to Redcliffs Fine Wine and

Spirits.

The landlord Peter

Croft was absent from

the meeting and was

represented by his wife,

Kate Bovett, who assured

residents they would not let

the store turn into a “booze

barn.”

“Permission to paint

the shop will not be given

and there will be no huge

advertising like you see

around the typical bottle

stores,” she said.

Community Action

on Youth and Drugs, a

Ministry of Health-funded

organisation to reduce the

harm to young people from

alcohol and other drugs,

wants the application

removed because it does

not represent what Mr

Singh is planning. Its

senior project worker Paul

McMahon said the original

application needed to be

removed and a new one

should be submitted.

Mr McMahon said he

would even contribute

to the costs involved

in submitting a new

application.

The floor plan is

standard for a bottle store,

they [Mr Singh] talk about

cheeses and delicatessen

but there is just a tiny bit of

space,” he said.

Building

Opening

264 Annex Road

On Wednesday 13 February, Smooth-Air held

an Open Day and evening gathering to celebrate

the rebuild of their National Headquarters at 264

Annex Road. During the day, customers enjoyed

an all-day BBQ, featuring smoked pork ribs.

Around 60 suppliers, customers and stakeholders

attended the evening function, and were shown

around the purpose built building. “This new

building is better suited to our needs and

more efficient than the

previous one”, marketing

spokesperson Kate Rattray

says.

“In the meantime, we will be

continually moving onwards

and upwards with an

increased product range to

service our commercial, trade

and domestic customers.”

In the welcoming speech, CEO Allan Doak

introduced the new National Sales Manager Phil

Henderson, and new Southern Regional Manager

Richard Jack. “Their focus will be on continuing

to provide customers with excellent service and

advice.”

Experts in providing quality of air for domestic

and commercial purposes, Smooth-Air supplies

equipment for all types of ventilation systems

including ducting,

grilles, diffusers

and fans – in fact,

For the domestic market, the

focus is on cleaner, drier, warmer

homes. Smooth-Air has several

ventilation systems designed for

the New Zealand climate. The

HEX390 is a heat

exchanger suitable

for domestic and commercial

premises, exchanging fresh air

for stale, while reclaiming heat (or

cooling) from the expelled air.

Their HTU heat transfer systems

are another popular option,

transferring heat from log burners to

one, two, three or four other areas

of the home, improving energy efficiency and

reducing power consumption.

Smooth-Air also caters for large commercial

projects, with the capacity to produce substantial

quantities of TD panel (a hi-tech lightweight

Design soon

for tram shelter

• By Louis Day

PROGRESS IS being made on the

Moncks Bay tram shelter.

A design for repair will be completed

for the tram shelter by mid

next month.

The city council has been working

on the design for repair over

the last three weeks.

The 85-year-old building on

Main Rd has been closed since

Christmas Eve after an assessment

indicated the condition of the roof

had compromised the structural

integrity of the shelter, leaving it

vulnerable to quakes.

City council transport and operations

manager Steffan Thomas

said an exact date for when the

repairs would start is currently

unclear.

“Once the design has been

accepted a scope of works will

be outlined to give estimated

timelines and costs. Timelines will

be dependent on funding availability,”

he said.

Redcliffs Residents’ Association

secretary Pat McIntosh was happy

to see the project progressing but

was also disappointed the shelter

had been left to deteriorate to this

state.

“It looks as though it has been a

very long time since any roofing

maintenance was done on it to the

point it had to be closed,” she said.

62-year-old locomotive on display

• By Louis Day

SEVEN YEARS ago

Christchurch man Andrew

Wilson had a dream of bringing

a locomotive to Little River,

last week that dream became a

reality.

The Little River Railway

Station Trust welcomed a

62-year-old locomotive into the

station on Thursday.

Mr Wilson, who is a trustee

and the director of operations,

dreamt up the idea of bringing

a locomotive to Little River in

2008 as part of the trust’s 2021

vision plan.

It was also Mr Wilson who

came across the locomotive on

Trade Me and drove to Dunedin

to assess it.

“I have driven further for

trains, I have gone down to Bluff

over a weekend,” he said.

Mr Wilson said he has had a

passion for trains ever since

his grandmother took him for

walks through the train yard

next to their holiday home in

Kaikoura.

“On my grandmother’s death

bed, she said I must ask for

forgiveness for introducing

you to trains and I said why?

You have introduced me to a

hobby that will last me a lifetime

and she said not to you but to

Christchurch Showroom

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

everyone else for having to put

up with this hobby of yours.”

Mr Wilson, who still has

photos of himself as a child with

locomotives, hopes children

today can create the same

memories with the station’s

newest addition.

The idea is to create that

scene for people to make those

memories and that locomotive

is there to help people do that

so they can look back on those

memories for a lifetime.”

The $8500 locomotive is

now on the tracks connected

to a carriage ready for people

to have their photos taken next

to it.

The locomotive was

introduced into service in June

1957 and decommissioned in

April 1985.

It spent its entire working role

in the South Island.

Mr Wilson said once the trust

has restored the interior of the

locomotive, it will consider

opening it up on special

occasions and maybe even let

people pull the whistle.

The trust does not have a

licence to run the locomotive

along the tracks.

However, Mr Wilson said they

could possibly jack it above the

rails, which would allow the

wheels to go round without it

actually going anywhere.

Residents’ groups trade insults

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

THE LEADERS of two

residents’ associations have

exchanged insults over

whether Ruapuna Speedway is

noisy.

Templeton Residents’

Association chairman Garry

Kilday and Yaldhurst Rural

Residents’ Association

chairwoman Sara Harnett-

Kikstra are in a row over

whether there are noise issues

at the track.

Ms Harnett-Kikstra made

an unsuccessful noise

complaint after a burnout pad

event at Ruapuna last month.

An investigation found noise

levels were not breached.

Mr Kilday said there have

not been any recent problems

between Templeton residents

and Ruapuna – the issue lies

with Ms Harnett-Kikstra.

“We have never had a

complaint from the Templeton

community in ages . . . other

than (Ms Harnett-Kikstra)

asking questions, there have

been no other complaints at

all,” he said.

Ms Harnett-Kikstra called

the residents’ association a

“bunch of petrol heads.”

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Sara Harnett-Kikstra

Mr Kilday hit back, saying

Ms Harnett-Kikstra is a

“whinger” and the Templeton

association is not a bunch of

petrol heads.

“I am the only one that goes

(to Ruapuna) so how can it be

a bunch?”

He questioned why Ms Harnett-Kikstra

is complaining

about noise at Ruapuna when

she doesn’t live in Templeton.

Ms Harnett-Kikstra responded:

“How would they

know where the complaints

were coming from?”

She said she lives on the

Garry Kilday

boundary of Templeton and

Yaldhurst.

“I have been down to

Templeton School. My

children were there for a

sports day, and my God, why

they put up with it there I

don’t know . . . we get people

calling in here saying the noise

is disgusting.”

Residents have been at war

with Ruapuna for years, with

the issue flaring up in 2013

when Ms Harnett-Kikstra told

the city council her children

could not sleep.

But the Ruapuna

The Star

Community Liaison

Committee, which is made

up of residents and raceway

representatives,

said noise issues had been

minimal.

The committee monitors

noise from Ruapuna and

ensures compliance with the

District Plan.

Said chairman Laurie

McCallum: “We need to work

as hard at the peace as we did

at the war and that is what we

are trying to do at Templeton.”

Eleven complaints were

made against Ruapuna in 2017

– with eight from Templeton,

two from Yaldhurst and one

with no location details. Last

year, five complaints were

made from Templeton.

Mr McCallum said in

a report to the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board there was a

high level of compliance from

the speedway.

But Ms Harnett-Kikstra said

while noise at Ruapuna has

gotten better, the speedway

had no option but to improve

after noise issues went to the

Environment Court.

Noise restrictions were

placed on Ruapuna in 2016.

IT’S BEEN a tough week.

Completely out of Vittoria’s hands and

not her fault – no, she has been a great

help.

Last week, a family emergency saw me

head to Dunedin for a couple of days.

I’m sorry to be

so vague, it’s not

like my whānau

subscribes to the

Mafioso notion of

omerta or anything,

it’s just a family

matter.

To put it simply,

it’s been, and still

is, an emotionally

trying time for all

of us.

Luckily, Laura

was able to be home with Vittoria while I

was away.

She even took Vittoria to a swimming

lesson for the first time, I’m so proud of

her.

I would have been stuffed without her.

It certainly gave me an appreciation for

how lucky we are to have each other to rely

on. Being a solo parent must be bloody

hard.

While I was away in Dunedin,

Vittoria learned a new trick – the laughs

it has provided have been very much

appreciated.

You know when you see toddlers have

big tantrums? And they fall on the ground,

kicking their legs and screaming?

Imagine that, but in slow motion and

way more chill.

She cries about whatever is bothering her

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

Time to remember

185 quake victims

IT IS hard to believe that another

anniversary of that fateful day has

arrived – 12.51pm, February 22, 2011 – we

remember where we were, what we were

doing and what followed.

We remember the 185 people who lost

their lives, the serious injuries that were

inflicted on so many, and the loss of

homes, businesses and whole communities.

We will come together as a city at the

Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial

at 12.30pm. The 185 names will be read

and at 12.51pm we will observe a minute’s

silence. Wherever you are, perhaps you too

could pause for a minute and think about

that day and what it means to you.

After that, maybe you could pause for

another minute and think about our future

as a city. I know there is much to be done,

however, as I walked along the terraces the

other night it was balmy, the venues were

full, and people were enjoying the promenade

and the river. I soaked it all in and

it made me smile. It felt like we had finally

turned the corner.

And on that note, this weekend, we have

Notice of electricity delivery price changes

Orion New Zealand Limited owns and operates the electricity distribution network in central Canterbury (including Christchurch) between the Waimakariri and Rakaia

rivers, and from the Canterbury coast to Arthur’s Pass. We receive electricity from Transpower’s national grid at seven different locations and we distribute this electricity

to more than 200,000 homes and businesses.

Our service is delivery only (we don’t buy and sell the electricity, we just deliver it), and we charge electricity retailers on a wholesale basis for this delivery service.

Retailers, in turn, include this cost in their retail electricity prices – Orion’s distribution charges and Transpower’s transmission charges together represent about 40% of an

average household electricity bill. Both Orion’s and Transpower’s prices are regulated by the Commerce Commission and the changes set out in this schedule are made in

accordance with the terms of the regulation. For more information on our pricing, or Orion in general, visit www.oriongroup.co.nz or call us on 363 9898. For information

on the retail prices that appear on your electricity account, please contact your electricity retailer.

Requirement 2.4.18 of the Electricity Distribution Information Disclosure Determination 2012 requires Orion to publicly disclose changes to our wholesale prices, together

King Arthur

on stage

at Botanic

Gardens

THE EPIC tale of King Arthur

will get a quirky re-telling at

the Anthony Harper Summer

Theatre.

Rollicking Entertainment has

come up with a fresh take on the

myth and is set to bring it to life

on the Murray Aynsley Lawn

of the Botanic Gardens from

February 27 to March 17.

City council events and arts

manager Karena Finnie said

it will have all the fun of a

pantomime and some clever

lines to keep the audience

entertained.

“With knights, a holy grail,

a wizard, a magical lake and

swashbuckling sword fights, this

year’s production of King Arthur

is sure to capture the audience’s

imagination,” she said.

Ms Finnie said the Anthony

Harper Summer Theatre is one

of SummerTimes most iconic

events.

•King Arthur will be

performed on Wednesday,

Thursday and Friday

nights, 6.30-8.30pm, and

on Saturday and Sunday at

2pm and 6.30pm.

Cabaret to celebrate diversity

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

ENSURING the city’s

LGBTQIA+ community is

celebrated through theatre is

a major “passion project” for

Jeremy Hinman.

The Blackboard Collective

Theatre director wants to grow

“queer theatre” in the city and

is the leading force behind

an original cabaret to mark

Christchurch Pride week which

runs from February 28 to March

10.

Severely Queer – A Little Gay

Cabaret will be performed at the

Isaac Theatre Royal’s Gloucester

Room from March 1-2.

Hinman said the show

will celebrate diversity and

inclusiveness – a large part of

the theatre company’s values.

“I am one of five directors

for BTC and I am the only

queer person on the team. It

was definitely a passion project

for me to make sure we got

something in the pride festival,”

Hinman said.

All six performers in the show

identify as being either part of

the queer community or a “queer

ally,” Hinman said.

Aiming to create a

contemporary feel, the cabaret

PRIDE: Jeremy Hinman, who played Miss Understanding

in Showbiz Christchurch’s Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, is

creating an original cabaret for Christchurch Pride week.

PHOTO: SHOWBIZ CHRISTCHURCH/DANIELLE COLVIN

will feature tracks considered

to be “club-bangers”, including

music from gay icons and

celebrities such as Britney Spears,

Christina Aguilera and Barbra

Streisand.

With rehearsals only starting

next week, the performers will

have five days to build the show.

Hinman said a huge part

of the story will be about selfacceptance.

He said people

do not need to be in the queer

community to celebrate a pride

event. “It is about promoting you

in whatever shape, form, colour

or orientation that is,” he said.

Hinman said his own

experience of coming out when

he was 16 wasn’t “extremely

excruciating” but it took time

and experimentation to find his

identity. “When I came out as

gay, it became one of my most

defining qualities . . . 13 years

later it is just a part of me and is

not a huge thing I feel the need

to show or tell people when I first

meet them.”

“I don’t think we place too

much emphasis on it, but I think

any emphasis placed on it comes

from a place of finding yourself

within that community.”

Hinman believes a lot more

queer and drag theatre is starting

to be established in the city.

He said diversity in the

theatre, not just from the

queer community but culturally

as well, is good for the city.

Gardening

GARDENING ADVICE

My eight-year old Stellar cherry tree has been shedding more than 50% of its fruit prematurely. It was a similar

Q scenario last year but it’s worse this year. It’s truly heart-breaking to witness the cherries dropping off in a big

quantity after a year of waiting! I had sprayed leaves affected by aphids with a light dosage mixture of neem oil and

kitchen detergent. Would this cause the shedding? Please advise what I can do to prevent this happening again.

Today’s winning question came from Jonathan Tan. Congratulations!

A

This is a very frustrating scenario, but you will

be pleased to know that it is not caused by

anything you are doing or spraying.

The shedding of cherry fruit prematurely is

often a problem which is exacerbated by

extreme weather conditions such as hot temperatures

then dry strong winds, and heavy rainfall followed by dry

periods.

Cherries have quite specific growing

requirements, which is typically

why they are only grown

commercially in a limited number

of areas such as; Blenheim,

Nelson, Central Otago and

Hawkes Bay. All these areas

have cool winters and generally

hot, dry summers.

$95

PRIZE

PACK!

Growing cherries in Christchurch will always be a bit of

a gamble, however there will be years when you harvest

excellent heavy crops, so try not to be disheartened.

Winter pruning of cherry trees is important, particularly

if there has been an outbreak of aphids. Use pruning to

open the tree up to allow good air movement and light

penetration throughout the branches. This will also help

control the aphids.

A healthy tree is more resistant to pests and diseases.

Apply Garden Time Fruit & Citrus Fertiliser at six

weekly intervals in early spring when plants

are coming into growth, until mid-December.

Recommence in mid-February through to

autumn. For more gardening advice and

tips, check out our How To Grow guides at

www.daltons.co.nz/how-to-guides

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

Subaru Forester a

worthy car of the year

MY WIFE and I consider

Queenstown one of

our favourite holiday

destinations. We have

driven there often, the

roads and scenery on that

journey are magnificent.

Every time I’ve driven

past the famous Bendigo

station, south of Omarama,

I’ve looked in and

wondered what intrigue

lies behind the front gates.

Well, now I know. When

Subaru launched its latest

generation Forester to

the media it included a

drive through some of the

rugged tracks that link old

gold mining settlements,

farming blocks and now

vineyards. Not only was the

experience a way to explore

the history of that area but

it was a good test of the

Forester’s off-road ability.

The Forester is brand

new for 2019, it’s a new

shape, yet it still utilises

most of the mechanicals

that make the Imprezabased

sport utility vehicle

a force to be reckoned with

in the mid-size market.

It’s fair to say, too, the

Forester is state-of-the-art

in terms of four-wheeldrive

engineering, all the

trickery you need to travel

off-road are included.

There are three models in

the line-up, and it must be

said that the Forester is still

the bargain-based model

which has sold in large

numbers in New Zealand.

The range starts at $39,990,

there’s a $44,990 Sport Plus

model while a Limited

variant lists at $47,490. The

test car was the latter and

it bristles with fitment and

specification.

All Foresters here now

get a 2.5-litre, quadcamshaft,

horizontally

opposed, four-cylinder

petrol engine, and it

does a sterling job in

terms of power output

and economy. Rated

with 136kW and 230Nm

(5800rpm and 4400rpm

respectively), and listed

with an 7.4-litre per 100km

(38mpg) combined cycle

fuel usage rating, the

Forester is not short on the

ingredients which make it

feisty and frugal.

On my home patch

for a week, the trip

computer was constantly

showing around 9l/100km

(31mpg), and it registered

a 4.5l/100km (62mpg)

instantaneous readout

travelling at 100km/h

(engine speed 1500rpm).

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

SUBARU FORESTER: Perfect for alpine roads.

Drive to all four wheels

is channelled through

a continuously variable

transmission. The benefit

of CVT is its lightweight,

and the ability to harness

power without loss through

a torque converter. There’s

little downside to CVT,

the only notable comment

is that the engine appears

to have more freedom,

and that is a good thing,

there’s a constant feeling

of liveliness within the

driveline.

• Price – Subaru

Forester Premium,

$47,490

• Dimensions –

Length, 4625mm;

width, 1815mm;

height, 1730mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive,

2498cc,

136kW, 239Nm, CVT.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.5sec

• Fuel usage –

7.4l/100km

As a consequence,

the Forester has good

acceleration, it will cut out

a standstill to 100km/h

time in under 10sec, and

punches through a highway

overtake in 6sec (80km/h

to 120km/h). Strength for

the latter is provided by

the healthy torque figure

and the natural force

developed by horizontally

opposed engines, they

work tirelessly through the

mid-range.

Given the time we had

at Bendigo Station, I didn’t

feel the need to spend

any time off-road locally;

however, I can report that

with a generous 220mm

of ground clearance the

Forester is adept in the

rough stuff, with fully

independent suspension

and permanently engaged

drive to all wheels, the

driver can gain plenty of

confidence travelling crosscountry.

Even though the tyres

(Bridgestone Dueler 225/55

x18in) don’t have an

aggressive off-road tread

pattern, grip is still well

enhanced, and if treated

sensibly the Forester will

take you places well offthe-beaten-track

thanks to

an X-Mode driver assist

function, it is there to

manage engine output, and

drive, in hilly sections.

Although the ski season

is still some way off, the

Forester is the quintessential

vehicle for winter sport

enthusiasts, its drive system

is tailor-made for the trek

up the alpine roads.

On-road handling is also

keen, constant four-wheeldrive

encourages grip,

and with its low centre of

gravity, the Forester is an

SUV which handles like the

family sedan.

Steerage is direct, while

weight transfer through

body movement is

minimal. I took the test car

down, then back up the

Rakaia Gorge incline, and

it feels agile and nimble

without any awkward

tendencies.

For its price the

Premium-spec Forester

is well appointed with

all of the comfort and

convenience items you’d

expect on a premium

model, although I couldn’t

find any seat heaters and

that’s a disappointment.

However, it does get

Subaru’s Eyesight safety

technology which goes a

long way towards earning

the Forester a five-star

Australasian New Car

Assessment Program safety

rating.

Over the years the

Forester has cemented itself

well into Kiwi culture, so

much so it has become one

of our sport utility vehicle

favourites. And the new

model has already won the

New Zealand Motoring

Writers’ Guild Car of the

Year award, an honour well

deserved.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

COOK PERFECT RIBEYE STEAK

Ingredients

500g ribeye

Salt

3 Tbsp butter

Directions

Liberally salt all sides of

the steak. Place the steak on a

plate, and refrigerate uncovered

overnight (or for at least a few

hours). Heat a cast iron pan

over medium-high heat.

When it’s smoking hot, melt

butter in the pan. Remove the

steak from the refrigerator

and place in the pan. Flip

every 30sec for about 8-9min,

occasionally spooning hot

butter over the top.

This will get it to about a

medium rare.

If you want it more done,

cook it longer.

Remove from the heat and let

it rest for 5-10min.

FRUIT KEBABS

Ingredients

4 apricots

1 rock melon

16 green grapes

8 strawberries

1 orange, peeled

2 small banana, peeled

2 kiwifruit, peeled

2 tsp lemon juice

8 skewers

Directions

Cut all medium-large fruit into

chunks or slices (let the age of

the children guide the size you

make them).

When using banana, place the

lemon juice in a bowl and toss

the banana pieces through to

coat them. This helps prevent

browning.

Insert all fruit onto the

skewers.

WEEK 6: Taking the next step up

This week you are going to use the fitness

you have built up in the last 5 weeks. You

should now feel comfortable with the rhythm

and technique of the jogging movement

and you can maintain this for a longer

period of time (this applies especially for

the beginners group). For the intermediate

group there is a bit of pace change at the

Monday and Friday run. Remember the

different training intensity zones?

Zone 1, easy: this is a pace whereby you

are not too puffed and the talk test is not

even a test. At this stage this is the zone you

spent most of your time in as it will give you

some initial conditioning without the risk of

soreness or muscle strain.

Zone 2, steady: this is slightly faster than

easy; it can also be called a “firm” pace. It

takes a bit more effort to talk but you can

still form sentences without having to take

an extra breath.

Zone 3, moderately hard: this is the pace

where you need that extra breath to finish

your sentence. You can still talk and jog at the

same time but it becomes more laborious so

you tend to shut up and concentrate more

on your rhythm and holding your pace.

Zone 4 and 5 are for the competitive

athletes only and do not apply to the

beginners or intermediate group. In these

zones the oxygen supply does not keep up

with the oxygen demand so you get really

puffed to the extent that you cannot have

a conversation. This pace interferes with the

enjoyment of what you are doing and is not

necessary if your main goal is to finish the

event rather then competing.

TIP OF THE WEEK

Many of you will be stretching vigorously before and/

or after your training session. You do this because

others are doing it as well. There is not much evidence

that a conventional stretching routine prevents

injury or keeps you flexible. There is no real need for

stretching unless you have a specific problem with

particular muscle groups and you have been advised

by a physiotherapist or doctor to stretch. The most

effective form of stretching for flexibility is yoga,

but you will have to do it on a daily basis and for a

minimum of 20 minutes and for most of us it will not

make us better runners.

• By Gordon Findlater

SAM BROOMHALL has

gone from Crusaders No

8 to the No 8 wire sector

as managing director of

irrigation company Think

Water Canterbury.

Now residing in Tai

Tapu with his wife and

three children, the loose

forward has returned to his

roots after growing up in

Ellesmere.

Broomhall, 42, made

his Crusaders debut in

round one of the 2001

Super rugby season, which

resulted in a 16-51 loss to

the Brumbies in Canberra.

He went on to make 56

appearances and score

three tries before the end

of the 2005 season.

The red and black jersey

was always something I

wanted to wear ever since I

was a kid growing up and

going to Lancaster Park in

the 1980s,” said Broomhall.

“It was pretty whirlwind

when it all happened. I

went from playing club

rugby to being in a forward

pack where I was basically

the only non-All Black.”

He was part of the 2005

Super Rugby title-winning

side and the unbeatables of

2002.

“I remember Robbie

[Deans] putting up a map

of the world with all the

Super 12 states and we

slowly throughout the year

started blanking them all

off as we went around. It

became a real mission to

knock the whole lot off,”

said Broomhall.

During his time with the

franchise, Broomhall was

part of the pukeko club

with Greg Somerville and

Nathan Mauger.

“Pukeko was to do

with the size of our calf

muscles because we all

had skinny, little calves. I

thought it was quite funny

considering Greg held up

the All Blacks scrum for a

number of years.”

Outside of the team’s onfield

success, Broomhall

said he had a preference

for who he roomed with

on away trips, preferring

his fellow forwards to the

backs.

“Ben Hurst was quite a

bad one because he used

to shave his body quite a

bit, you’d find hair around

different parts of the

bathroom.”

Broomhall is by no

means one of the larger

No 8s to run out for the

Crusaders. However, he

took pride in measuring

himself against bigger

players in tackles.

“You just have to put the

fear aside and smack them

as hard as you can and

then hope you come out on

the right side,” he said.

In 2005, Broomhall

moved to France to join

Top 14 club Clermont.

After a poor season in

2006, the club appointed

former Crusaders forwards

coach Vern Cotter to the

head coaching role. Cotter

led the team to the Pro 14

finals with Broomhall in

2007 and 2008.

In 2008, Broomhall

returned home to work

for the family irrigation

business, which his father

started more than 35 years

ago.

“Irrigation has been a bit

of a growth industry . . .

it’s been keeping us pretty

busy,” said Broomhall.

“I enjoy working in the

rural sector. You meet a

lot of awesome people and

a lot of people that you’ve

played rugby with over the

year.”

Broomhall draws on

lessons from his Crusaders

days in his current role.

“A lot of the principles –

work ethic, motivation and

the importance of creating

a good culture – are very

similar, whether it’s sports

or business.”

Broomhall is still

involved with rugby as

well. He occasionally

helps to coach Waihora’s

division one side.

Belfast rugby gets South African influence

• By Gordon Findlater

A CONNECTION with

Crusaders’ assistant Brad

Mooar and a desire to coach

at international level has seen

former South African sevens

player Mpho Mbiyozo uproot to

Christchurch.

Mbiyozo, 36, had his first day

on the job at Belfast Rugby Club

on Monday where he will work

as the rugby development officer.

He will also be an assistant coach

for their premier

side. Now

in Christchurch

he hopes

to replicate

the likes of

Steve Hansen,

Wayne Smith,

Brad Mooar

Robbie Deans,

Rob Penney

and Scott Robertson.

“From an outsiders perspective

this is the Mecca of rugby. Some

of the world’s top coaches come

from this area. The record of

the provincial team and Super

Rugby team speaks for itself,”

said Mbiyozo.

While finding a place to live

Mbiyozo, his wife and three

young children are staying with

the Mooar family. The former

flanker played for Mooar when

he was coaching the Southern

Kings in Port Elizabeth in 2012.

Since then the two have kept in

touch which resulted in Mbiyozo

staying with Mooar for a month

last year to attend the Crusaders

international high performance

unit coaching programme.

“We became mates first, then

IT’S TIME to admit the

landscape is seriously changing

when it comes to our sporting

participation.

The annual School Sport

New Zealand Census, released

last week, confirmed what has

been predicted in recent years –

basketball has overtaken rugby

and moved to second behind

netball in participation numbers.

The sport has had a massive

44.9 per cent increase in players

this decade and a 26 per cent

increase since 2014. Compare

that to rugby union, which

has experienced a 12 per cent

decrease since 2014.

Let’s look at the top three.

Netball’s 2018 participation

numbers lead the way on 27,139,

with 26,481 playing basketball

and 25,317 rugby.

While basketball has well and

truly entrenched itself within

the younger generation, it’s still

behind netball and particularly

rugby in terms on homebred

His Christchurch connection

doesn’t end with Mooar. Former

at times – whether that’s down

to the playing level or lack of

exposure is up for debate.

I’ve written before about the

case for a Christchurch-based

team in the ANBL and last

week’s figures are the latest

example of why it can work.

Yes, the team would never

receive the same kind of

following as the Crusaders, but

they wouldn’t need to. If they

could generate one-third of the

Crusaders support base you’d

see Horncastle Arena at capacity

or near it for at least 14 regular

season home games.

There are plenty of

opportunities for our top

basketball talents coming out of

looking to play professionally.

ago that Mbiyozo realised he had

a passion for coaching.

“I’ve got a lot to learn. Part of

coming here is to learn firstly

about myself and also about the

game. Hopefully, the lessons here

and wherever my future takes

me will lead to bigger things

and bigger goals which is hopefully

international rugby,” said

Mbiyozo.

He faces a tough task with

Belfast – which won just one

game in their 17 premier metro

matches last year. However, the

South African is looking at his

new role as an “opportunity”

rather than a challenge.

Having just turned 36, Mbiyozo

has been given a couple

of nudges about potentially

running out for Belfast himself.

But he believes there’s not much

chance of the boots being laced.

“I actually played in the Cape

Town 10s two weeks ago. My

body has only just recovered.

They tried to get me to have a

run around at the weekend but

my body is done,” said Mbiyozo.

BLAIR ORANGE will represent

being given the go ahead

from the Harness Racing New

Zealand board.

The board met to discuss

whether Orange would represent

the country at the championships

in Sweden from May 24-31.

The move to decide the representative

via a board meeting

was unusual, given the spot

was historically automatically

granted to the winner of the

drivers premiership.

The Star understands a

casting vote was made by board

chairman Ken Spicer.

Orange won last season’s

drivers premiership with 232

wins from 1321 starts, ahead

of Dexter Dunn with 214 wins.

Orange recently recorded his

100th win this season and

currently leads the premiership

Goal enhances under-20 chances

• By Gordon Findlater

A BUSY seven days was capped

off in style by teenager Seth Clark

when he scored the winning goal

at English Park on Sunday to book

Canterbury United a play-off spot.

Clark, 18, was substituted on

with 30min remaining in United’s

match against Team Wellington.

With the scores level at 1-1 the

attacking midfielder became the

hero in the 89th-minute when he

finished off the 2-1 victory.

“I think it was one of the most

significant goal I’ve ever scored,

it’s a good feeling that we’re in the

playoffs again,” said Clark.

The effort, which saw him

receive the ball on the edge of

the area and turn two defenders

before moving the ball onto his

favoured left foot and curling it

into the back of the net, came

much to the delight of coach Willy

Gerdsen.

“I have seen many goals in my

career, but that goal was something

special,” said Gerdsen.

The goal could work as a springboard

in his push for a spot at this

year’s under-20 FIFA World Cup

in Poland.

Clark, who has started the

majority of United’s games this

season, was introduced from the

bench because he was only able

to attend one team training session

during the week. Following

United’s 4-2 win at Hamilton

Wanderers the prior Sunday, Clark

and fellow United player Jacob

Richards travelled to Auckland on

Monday morning for a four-day

under-20 identification camp in

preparation for the tournament in

May.

Following the camp’s conclusion

on Thursday he flew back to

Christchurch to attend United’s

Friday evening straining session.

The teenager isn’t new to travelling

in the pursuit of a professional

football career. Clark lives

in Darfield and commutes into

Christchurch each day to train.

With two round-robin matches

remaining and a play-off spot now

confirmed, Clark will have ample

opportunity to push his case for

under-20 selection on the country’s

biggest stage domestically.

“I just need to keep playing

well and hopefully the selectors

and the coach will see that,” said

Clark.

United are currently fourth in

the national league. However, they

have a chance to finish as high as

second which would grant them a

home semi-final.

After recently finishing his final

year at Middleton Grange School

Clark is also hopeful of securing

a football scholarship to a United

States college by August.

WINNER: Seth Clark is embraced by his teammates after

scoring an 89th-minute goal in Canterbury United’s 2-1 win

over Team Wellington at English Park on Sunday.

Dressing your

property up for sale

Your house is on the market and you hope to get a good price. While

market performance will largely influence this, presenting your home

at its best will help.

First impressions count from the

moment potential buyers view a

property from the street to the moment

they walk through the front door.

Weed the garden, cut back unruly

shrubs and prune trees where needed.

Kill off weeds in the lawn, sprinkle grass

seed over bald patches and fertilise the

lawn.

Indoors, tidy up. Get rid of excess

or bulky furniture, toys, books, hobby

items or fitness equipment and if too

many photos on the wall pack these

away so the home looks roomy.

If there is a gap or a room needs

enhancing, look at what you have. A

piece of furniture might be painted up

or an old leather bound book popped

on the coffee table. Shelves will also add

depth to a narrow space while mirrors

may give the illusion of a larger space. In

entryways, add an easy chair, small table,

bookcase or large vase.

Awkward spaces such as coved

ceilings in attics or upstairs rooms might

be converted into storage shelving and

the room given a purpose as an office,

playroom or extra bedroom so viewers

can see how the room might be used.

Stow possessions neatly in containers,

shelving or tidily in cupboards;

highlighting the storage potential within

the home, ensuring it is clean and tidy

for viewing at any time.

Move the pets outside as not all buyers

will be pet lovers while some may suffer

pet allergies putting them off a house if

they see a pet inside.

If parts of the house look tired,

NEW LISTINGS

consider renovating by painting walls,

replacing worn carpet, or modernising

the kitchen, bathroom and toilet;

rooms that should sparkle. Replace

tired cabinetry, or the benches and

cupboard/drawer fronts then update old

toilets, showers or kitchen appliances.

Modernising these rooms can lift the

final selling price.

Use consistent and light paint

colours throughout for balance and

seamlessness, making the house appear

more spacious. An effect that is increased

when walls and curtains share the same

or a similar colour.

Consider the personality and purpose

of a room. Bright colours lift living areas

especially if large and open. However,

bedrooms are suited to calmer softer

colours with just a touch of bold. Layer

bedding or use throws for effect along

with cushions or a stuffed toy in a

children’s room.

With curtaining, smaller patterns

or plain fabrics are the rule for smaller

rooms whereas larger patterns make

spacious areas cosier. If blinds or drapes

are past their best, replace these even if it

is only with neutral cotton curtains. The

effect will be worth it.

Eco-friendly features will also add

value for some buyers though not

universally, however earthy natural

colours and features are popular.

Consider who your target buyers are

likely to be and what will appeal to them.
