Ayaan inspired by gentle arm of the law

SHARING LOVE: Ayaan Naeem, 5, hugs his relative, Sergeant Stuart Martindale, at Memorial Park Cemetery on Friday.

FIVE-YEAR-OLD Ayaan

Naeem stood quietly with his

family as his father and brother,

both victims of the mosque

terror attack, were buried.

After the burial, he decided

he wanted to be a policeman – a

decision made after a relative

crouched down and hugged

him. That man was Sergeant

Stuart Martindale.

The pair met at Memorial Park

Cemetery in Bromley on Friday

after Ayaan’s father, Mian Naeem

Rashid, 51, and eldest brother,

Talha Naeem, 21, were laid to

rest along with 24 others.

A CANTERBURY University law

student being investigated for a

sexual assault has been allowed to

go overseas on a study-related trip.

Bu the university’s dean of

law Ursula Cheer is refusing to

discuss the matter.

“I can’t comment

about any

of this because

of confidentiality

and privacy,” she

told The Star

yesterday.

The Star has

learned a female

student has laid

a complaint abou the accused

being allowed to go on the trip.

It is understood it is no the

same person who has laid the

sexual assault complain to the

police.

The Star has been told it is a

rape investigation.

The Star sent a number of questions

to Canterbury University

yesterday but none would be answered.

Said Canterbury University

spokeswoman Margaret Agnew:

“UC cannot respond to allegations

that are before the police.”

She referred the questions

back to Dr Cheer. Her phone was

turned off.

Police would also not comment

on the matter.

The overseas trip involves

HOW CAN I keep from singing?

Those are the lyrics and title

of a Pete Seeger song, but also a

question posed by Christchurch

musicians after the terror attack

rocked the city.

The Eastern frontman and

organiser Adam McGrath said

his phone did not stop buzzing

in the days following the mosque

shootings.

“I had a lot of messages from

musicians asking what should we

do, what are you organising and

how can we help?” he said.

McGrath’s first instinct was to

organise a concert to raise money

for the victims – but that soon

took on a life of its own and has

now moved into a series of shows.

The first is on Saturday at Blue

Smoke in The Tannery with all

profits of the $35 entry fee going

to Victim Support and the Muslim

Association of Canterbury

and features Lyttelton’s Marlon

Williams.

The Dark Tower, The Eastern,

Holly Arrowsmith, Adam Hattaway,

Alice Andersen, Al Park,

Ben Brown, Caleb Issacs, Isla

Martin, Jess Shanks, Lindon Puffin,

Matty Smith, Tom Maxwell

will also be playing and more to

be announced.

“It’s cool that Marlon wanted

to be a part of it and you’ve also

got Dark Tower who were so

iconic in Christchurch. It’ll be

the first time they’ve played in 15

years,” McGrath said.

He just had to “dot the i’s and

cross the t’s” before everything

was finalised.

Some of the money raised

would go directly to the families

in the form of petrol and grocery

vouchers.

“Donations always take a while

to trickle through big companies,

this way we can give them help

they need immediately.”

However, the concert is not

only planned to help victims and

their families, but also people

who need to take five minutes

and reflect.

come together, there will be lots of

Man dies after stand-off; possible link to terror attack

• By Sophie Cornish and

Julia Evans

POLICE HAVE not ruled out

a link between the March 15

terror attack and the death of a

man in Richmond yesterday.

A 54-year-old man died from

critical injures, believed to be

caused by a stab wound, following

a stand-off with police in the

early hours of the morning, near

Richmond Park, on Poulton Ave.

Police Commissioner Mike

Bush confirmed the man had

been sought by police, in relation

to a firearms incident on

Tuesday.

“At this time there is no

evidence to suggest this person

had any involvement in the attacks

of March 15, however, this

forms an important part of the

investigation,” he said.

A tip-off from a member of

the public resulted in a search

Music events to support families

different music,” McGrath said.

He’s dubbed it a tribute, a fundraiser,

a solidarity grower and a

hope builder.

“Singing is necessary. It’s

necessary in joy and its equally

necessary.”

Musicians will be playing

covers of American folk singer

and social activists Seeger and

Woody Guthrie.

McGrath’s gig is one in a number

of charity concerts planned

for the city.

This week it was announced

concerts would be held in

of a St Martins property on

Tuesday evening, where police

discovered a cache of firearms.

At about 12.30am yesterday,

the man was located by police

in a stopped vehicle in the

Richmond Park area. The police

negotiation team spoke with the

man for several hours.

The Eagle helicopter and the

armed offenders squad also attended.

“At around 3.40am police approached

the vehicle and discovered

the man critically injured

with what appeared to be a stab

wound. A knife was located in

the vehicle,” Mr Bush said.

“Immediate first aid was

provided, however, the man was

pronounced dead at the scene.”

Police said a high priority

investigation was under way to

determine whether or not the

dead man posed a threat to the

community.

VICTIMS: Mian Naeem Rashid, 51, and his son, Talha Naeem,

21, were killed when a gunman opened fire at Masjid Al Noor.

‘I like police!’ – young boy’s inspirational message

•From page 1

Fifty lives were claimed in the

terror attack.

Mr Rashid approached the accused

gunman and attempted to

stop him. But died of his wounds

in hospital.

Sergeant Martindale’s nephew,

Tyla Harrison-Hunt, married into

the Pakistani community and

converted to Islam six years ago,

through his wife, Fada Khan.

Ms Khan’s uncle is Mr Rashid

and Talha is her cousin.

Said Sergeant Martindale: “My

nephew Tyla said to the little

man (Ayaan), now you’re part of

my family, this is your uncle as

well, you can give him a hug. He

held his arms out and said: ‘I like

police!’

Mr Harrison-Hunt said Ayaan

now wants to be a policeman.

“He saw uncle and said he

wanted to be a policeman . . .

unfortunately, he’s one of the kids

who doesn’t have a dad anymore,”

he said.

Mr Rashid and Talha leave behind

mother and wife, Ambreen

Naeem, Ayaan and another son,

Abdullah Naeem, who is 19.

Mr Rashid, a teacher and tutor,

was a banker in Pakistan before

moving to New Zealand with his

family when his eldest son, Talha

was 11-years-old.

Talha was a civil engineer and

had just started a new job.

Mr Rashid has since been

praised for his courageous actions

by Pakistan Prime Minister

Imran Khan, who said he would

be recognised with a national

bravery award.

Mr Harrison-Hunt said his wife

and family are “doing okay.”

The problem wasn’t the week

where we lost our loved ones, the

real problem is how do we pick

up the pieces after that? There are

29 kids under the age of 18 who

have been left behind without a

mother or father. That will be the

defining factor in how these kids

get on, who can be role models

for them, who can help the ones

that need help.”

Mr Harrison-Hunt told The

Star of the close call he and other

family members had with the

shootings.

“That’s our mosque. We go

there every Friday, like how

people go to Sunday Mass every

week. We go to a lot of night

prayers; I got with my father-inlaw

a lot. He goes there every day.”

Mr Harrison-Hunt and his wife

were in Melbourne on the day of

the shootings, visiting his sister.

They received a text from a

friend, alerting them of the shooting

and frantically tried to contact

Ms Khan’s family.

Her father had been running

Sentence could be unprecedented

• By Sophie Cornish

AN UNPRECEDENTED

decision could be made today,

which would see a doublemurderer

and rapist locked up

for life without parole.

Paul Russell Wilson, 54, will

be sentenced in the High Court

at Christchurch this morning,

for the brutal murder of Nicole

Tuxford, in her Merivale home

in April last

year.

Wilson

murdered

and raped

Kimberly

Schroder, 21,

in a similar

way on the

Nicole Tuxford West Coast in

1994.

The Crown is seeking a sentence

of life imprisonment without

parole for Miss Tuxford’s

murder and rape. If the sentence

is handed out, it would be the

first time in New Zealand’s history.

Wilson previously pleaded

guilty to Miss Tuxford’s rape and

murder.

Sensible Sentencing Trust

spokeswoman Jess McVicar said

the sentence would be “completely

appropriate” for Wilson.

“This is the time for the justice

system to show just how invested

they really are in caring for our

victims and the public’s safety.”

Wilson was jailed in 1995

after he was sentenced to life

imprisonment with no parole

for 15 years for the murder of

Ms Schroder, which was then

reduced to 13 years on appeal.

Ms Shroder’s family wrote to

the Parole Board multiple times,

asking it not to release Wilson.

He was granted parole on the

fifth time of applying in December

2010 and was deemed to have

a “low risk” of reoffending.

He was released in January

2011.

South Island SSGT victim advocate

Jayne Walker has worked

closely with Miss Tuxford’s family,

who she said are “absolutely

pushing” for the sentence.

They can’t understand why

he was released in the first place.

This was so preventable. Life

means life . . . they have so much

frustration and anger. The grief

for them just goes on and on.

Constantly questioning over and

over in their head, how could

this happen?”

An independent review into

the Parole Board’s decision to

release Wilson is currently under

way.

Miss McVicar said the

Sentencing Act states the court

must sentence offenders such

DECISION:

Paul Russell

Wilson will

be sentenced

today for the

murder and

rape of Nicole

Tuxford in

April last year.

as Wilson to life without parole

unless the court is satisfied that

given the circumstances of the

offence and the offender, it

would be manifestly unjust to

do so.

She said Miss Tuxford’s death

could have been avoided “if the

Parole Board had listened to

the concerns of Ms Schroder’s

family.”

“But they were ignored because

of our justice system and the so

called ‘expert’ opinions,” said

Miss McVicar.

If the sentence is not given,

decision.

Mini touch

wall brought

out at library

book sale

• By Julia Evans

THE MINI version of the

controversial $1.24 million central

library touch wall has been

debuted.

The portable screen was rolled

out for the first time at the city

council library book sale over

the weekend. The 190cm screen

replicates the 7m Discovery Wall

at Turanga, which allows users to

swipe through photos, videos and

information. Its cost was included

in the $1.24 million touch wall.

A city council spokesperson

said more than 6000 people

attended the book sale. “Approximately

48,000 items were sold.”

The spokesperson said about

$65,000 was raised, but the final

figure is yet to be confirmed.

The wall created a stir last year

when the council was forced to release

its cost by the Ombudsman

and attorney-general.

The Taxpayers’ Union originally

requested the cost of the touch

wall, but was denied by the city

council. It then complained to

the Ombudsman. The wall was

provided by Wellington-based

Gibson Group, which did not

want the cost revealed because it

could “prejudice its commercial

position.”

Performing arts

precinct talks

exclude public

• By Julia Evans

THE FUTURE of the central

city’s $45 million performing arts

precinct will be discussed behind

closed doors today.

City councillors will receive

a report from a working party,

which has been investigating a

business case and concept designs

for a new Court Theatre on the

site bound by Armagh, New Regent,

Gloucester and Colombo Sts.

It is also looking into plans to

develop a car park building on the

site.

The precinct is a joint city council

and Crown project. The city

council is developing the facilities

– with its contribution capped at

$30 million – and the Crown is

providing the land.

However, the agenda for today’s

meeting said the report would

be discussed with the public

excluded as it contains “financial

information relating to the project

business case and operations of

The Court Theatre.”

City council general manager

citizens and community Mary

Richardson said a redacted

version would be released

following the meeting.

The plan includes a main

theatre with seating for 360

people and a studio theatre with

seating for 120.

Dalziel, coastal residents discuss inquiry

THE TERMS of an independent

Ms Dalziel responded to the

“It’s necessary, the community

has been quite anxious. There are

“I’m happy with the work the

An audit, which the city

Environment Canterbury

councillor and former

Environment Court judge Peter

However, Cr East said the

Skelton audit did not address a

CITY2SURF 9

Success in 6km fun run motivational

Thousands turned

out for the Star Media

City2Surf on Sunday

and for the 45th year

in a row, it didn’t rain.

Julia Evans took up the

challenge with little to

no training, this is how

she went

IT’S SAFE to say I’m not a

runner.

Unless there’s a lion chasing me

or I’m late for a bus, I’m not going

to run.

So as you can imagine, I’ve

never done a fun run.

But something in me decided it

would be a worthwhile idea to do

this year’s City2Surf – the 45th

seemed like a good place to start.

Something about the tragedy

of the last few weeks, I thought

running would be a good way to

work off some emotions.

Though, I’m not an over ambitious

sort of person, so a modest

6km jog/walk on a Sunday morning

didn’t sound like a bad idea.

Plus, I roped my mum (Nikki)

into doing it with me, so for the

entire time she could talk my ear

off while I focused on not falling

over and/or passing out.

However, when I told my work

pals that I was doing it, I got a

mixture of responses.

“No, you’re not.”

“Why?”

And one was simply an eye roll.

But I showed them.

The 6km event started in

Opawa’s Hansen Park at 10am,

an hour after the 14km runners/

walkers took off from Centennial

Park in Spreydon.

Mum and I arrived in the nick

of time and dumped our bags.

“Five minutes.”

At this stage I would say I was

still optimistically naive as to

how I would go.

In fact, after we took off and

wound around the river to that

little bridge where everyone

comes to a bottle-neck, I was still

happy with how I was going.

“This is a breeze,” I thought to

myself.

Oh how wrong you were, Julia.

It was post-bridge on the other

side of the Heathcote where I lost

steam – Mum and I broke into a

ACTIVE: Julia Evans and her

mother Nikki McDougall

before and after taking on

the City2Surf challenge.

humble walk.

From there we flirted with

running every now and then, but

largely continued to power walk

and I felt a little like I was in an

episode of Kath and Kim.

Where the wheels really started

to wobble was when I ran past a

sign that said 4km to go.

Surely that was not right.

Then another 10 minutes of

huffing and puffing.

3km to go.

The impending sense that I was

only half done was setting in.

I decided to opt for a new tactic.

One foot in front of the other

and just keep breathing.

2km to go.

That seemed more achievable

and my spirits started to perk

back up again.

Someone ran past with

Crowded House’s Don’t Dream

Its Over blasting from a device

in his Camelbak pack back and

I can confirm at that point, I did

dream it was over.

However, with 1km to go I

decided I needed to run the rest

– a tiny personal goal that I can

proudly say I achieved.

When we rounded through

into Ferrymead I decided I would

run the rest of the way and took

off from mum – though she

quickly followed.

I crossed the finish line with

absolutely no idea how long it

took me.

But what I did have was a sense

of achievement, a red face and

a free Powerade – 100 per cent

worth it.

If you haven’t done a fun run

before, my advice bears a striking

resemblance to a particular brand

of running shoes – just do it.

But maybe do a little training

before the day, if the tightness in

my calves and thighs is anything

to go by.

It hasn’t put me off, I’m signing

up to do the 8km Tai Tapu Run

Festival in a few weeks.

I’ll let you know how I go.

Iconic event brings community together

The Kadodo Western African band get the crowd warmed up before the start, including Alice Egan, 14, Isabelle O’Carroll, 15, and

Bing Lin.

“THIS YEAR was special.”

Star Media regional manager

Steve McCaughan said this year’s

45th fun run was one of the most

poignant City2Surf events there

has been.

Thousands of Cantabrians

turned out, entries were well

up on 2018, with a surge of last

minute entries at the end of the

week.

Had it been any closer to the

tragic terror attack of March 15

that claimed 50 lives, Mr

McCaughan said the City2Surf

would not have gone ahead.

Instead it was a chance to bring

people together to have a positive

distraction through the adversity,

he said.

“It felt like the first step that

Cantabrians could take in the

healing process and moving back

to some normality . . . we needed

this,” he said.

“It brought people together

to share in a community activity

with the benefit of some physical

activity.”

There was also an increase in

the number of small groups, with

more people running in twos,

threes and fours than usual, Mr

McCaughan said.

“People were getting together

and saying let’s do this.”

This year’s supporting charity

was the Canterbury Charity

Hospital Trust, which is currently

offering free counselling following

the Christchurch shootings.

Maori health provider He

Waka Tapu had 1200 people running,

jogging and walking under

its banner.

The major prize, return flights

to Singapore with Singapore

team.

There was a strong sense of

elation at the finish line, more

so than usual,” Mr McCaughan

said.

is a value that New Zealanders

Tūranga makes list

The central city’s

new $92 million

library, Tūranga, has

made the BBC’s

list of the nine

most “stunning

contemporary”

libraries in the world.

Julia Evans looks at

the other buildings

which made the cut

•Tūranga

The library is one of

the nine rebuild anchor

projects in the central

city.

The 9500 sq m,

five-storey building by

Denmark’s Schmidt

Hammer Lassen Architects

has heavy concrete walls to

resist any future shakes.

Inside the entrance is

the Foundation Café and a

technology and innovation

zone with the 7m touch

wall.

A community and

children’s area with a

reading cave and activity

room is on the second

floor.

On the upper three floors

there are meeting and

study rooms, a production

studio, computer lab and

music studio.

RENOWNED: Tūranga has made a list of the nine

most ‘stunning contemporary’ libraries in the

world.

•Helsinki Central

Library Oodi – Helsinki,

Finland

In Oodi, Helsinki’s

(EU)€66 million library,

which opened in

December, only a third of

the 17,250 sq m space is

used to store books.

The building by

Finnish ALA Architects

has a cinema, recording

studios, as well as

offering access to public

services, exhibitions and

community events.

The makerspace

workshops offer access

to technologies such as

3D and vinyl printers,

laser cutters, heat presses,

sewing machines and

equipment to digitally

sculpt wood.

Some books in the

of the world’s most ‘stunning’ libraries

Designed by US architecture

firm Skidmore Owings &

Merrill, the space doubles as a

community centre, with meeting

rooms and a digital learning

space with a recording studio.

It also has a tinkering lab and

storytelling rooms with magnetic

and write on surfaces for younger

children.

•Tingbjerg Library –

Copenhagen, Denmark

The 1500 sq m culture house,

library and community centre is

an extension of Tingbjerg School.

The wedge-shaped building,

which is 1.5m at its narrowest

point, was designed by Danish

COBE and has meeting rooms,

a café and workshops with lasercutting

facilities.

The building’s hall hosts

concerts and events like

children’s theatre, films and toymaking

workshops, along with

readings by authors.

Tingbjerg Library, Denmark.

TOP ARCHITECTURE: The Chicago Public Library West Loop, and the Dandaji Library in Niger join Tūranga on the BBC’s list

of the nine most ‘stunning contemporary’ libraries in the world.

•Calgary Central Library –

Alberta, Canada

The CAN$245 million, 22,300

sq m, four-storey library opened

in November and was designed

by US-Norwegian architects

Snøhetta.

The building is oval-shaped

and elevated above street level

with light rail and an open plaza

beneath.

The lower floors contain

meeting spaces and activity

centres, while the upper floors

feature room for 450,000 books.

•VAC Library – Hanoi,

Vietnam

This library-farm hybrid was

designed by Vietnamese Farming

Architects and uses solarpowered

aquaponics to keep

vegetables, koi carp, chickens and

books.

The aim is to teach children

about self-sustaining ecosystems.

The structure is a modular

wooden grid, topped by a roof

with solar panels.

•Biblioteca Sur – Lima,

Peru

The 1300 sq m library by

Gonzalez Moix Arquitectura is

the latest addition to a cultural

complex, which also includes a

plaza, school, and public park.

There are spaces for a number

of courses, including guitar, yoga,

drawing, photography, ballet and

theatre.

The building’s outside was

designed to resemble books on a

shelf.

•Dandaji Library – Dandaji,

Niger

The building was a derelict

mosque in western Niger which

has been converted into a library

and community centre.

The architects, Atelier Masomi

and Studio Chahar, from Niger

renovated the existing building,

but instead of using wood, which

is scarce, they opted for metal.

There are study spaces, with

electricity and areas for adult

literacy classes, requested by local

women. There is also a computer

lab.

•Tianjin Binhai New Area

Library – Tianjin, China

The futuristic, 33,700 sq m,

five-storey space in China has

tiered bookcases from floor to

ceiling which are able to hold 1.2

million books. A large sphere

auditorium at the building’s

centre is able to hold 110 people,

which led to it being nicknamed

The Eye.

THEATRE/ARTS

Sci-fi for

children

over the

holidays

THE RUMBLE of dinosaur

footsteps will be heard at The

Court Theatre these school

holidays.

A brand new kids play Time

Machine will make its debut on

the stage next month, taking

children on a journey through

time and space.

Bringing a bit of sci-fi fun to

the theatre, writer Andrew Todd

said “Time Machine has plucky

and likeable lead characters,

some wild time-travel antics

and, since we’re travelling in

time, dinosaurs and robots.

Everyone likes dinosaurs and

robots.”

Audiences will travel to the

pre-historic past and robot-filled

future with Professor Wells, the

inventor of the time machine,

played by Monique Clementson,

and her assistant, Eloise, played

by Hillary Moulder. The pair

embark on their adventure after

Wells’ patron, played by Dylan

Frewin, demands she proves her

invention works. With a cast

including a T-Rex and a talking

robot, Time Machine will

provide plenty of excitement for

five to eight-year-olds.

•Time Machine will run

at The Court Theatre from

April 13-27 with a relaxed

performance on April 27

at 11am.

KAREN HALLSWORTH has

no qualms about removing her

clothing in front of the public.

In fact, the older she has

become, the keener she is to bare

all for the world to see.

The 51-year-old mother-of-two

will play a lead role in Elmwood

Player’s production of Calendar

Girls – which will involve posing

in the nude with five other

women.

The uplifting show is based

on a true story about a group of

middle-aged Yorkshire women,

one of which lost a husband to

cancer in April 1999. The death

inspired the women to produce a

nude calendar to raise funds for

leukaemia research.

For Hallsworth, who lives in

Sumner, taking part in the show

was a “no-brainer” as there is

so much more to the show than

removing clothing.

Originally from Derbyshire,

she recalls the story of the group

of women hitting the newspapers

in 1999 and being moved by

how the women banded together

with “such love, affection and

empathy.”

The act of doing that (going

nude) empowers women and

makes them realise their worth

and their inner strength,” she said.

Hallsworth believes her

confidence of baring flesh is

something that has come with

age and motherhood.

“I think for me my body took

on a different meaning when I

had children . . . suddenly it was

a vessel.

Hallsworth said the less she

resembles her 25-year-old self the

more she realises her worth.

“It doesn’t matter I am bit

bigger than I was, or gravity

has taken over, or I have stretch

marks. I am still me, I am still

wonderful,” Hallsworth said.

She said young people today

are more than ever growing up

in a time where their physical

appearance is a measure of their

worth.

“I love my wrinkles, I laugh a

lot. I have never been accused of

taking life too seriously. If I have

wrinkles because of that, then

great, bring it on,” Hallsworth said.

A percentage of the proceeds

from the show will go to

charitable organisation Nurse

Maude.

Hallsworth said she is

honoured and privileged to be

able to support the organisation

who do an amazing job at

supporting families with

leukaemia and lymphoma.

Crashing the stage

A FEW columns back I boldly

claimed we would be working

towards getting Vittoria back into

sleeping in the cot.

Guess how many times she’s

slept in the cot since then?

Once and it was a nap. Oh well,

I guess being woken up by being

kicked in the head is my life still.

Anyway, on Monday I took

Vittoria to a kid’s music show at

The Piano. I’d never been there

before and the only other show

by Cubbin Theatre I’d been to

was in an enclosed room.

Seeing the setting for this show

was a little bit of a shock.

Vittoria is so full on these days

that the high stairs, easy to access

stage, live band and other kids all

around made me sure something

would go wrong. Don’t get me

wrong, it’s the perfect setting for

what was a great show. I was just

worried it was not the perfect

setting for Vittoria.

In the intense glare of my

own imagined spotlight, I could

already see the scathing glares of

the mums as she fell over on the

stairs or grabbed an instrument

off the stage.

I grabbed our seats, put the

nappy bag down then stood up

and followed Vittoria up the

stairs. Then down the stairs. Then

up the stairs.

When the music started Vittoria

was happy dancing along and

slowly climbed down the stairs to

boogie in front of the stage.

VITTORIA

& Matt

LIMELIGHT:

Vittoria makes

an unexpected

stage debut with

the members of

Cubbin Theatre.

Suddenly she made her move

on the stage. My nightmare was

coming true. I grabbed her three

times before she decided we

would go to the top of the stairs

to dance.

Once she’d got me into a false

sense of security, she rushed

to the other side of the theatre

(somehow collecting a pretzel on

the way) and down the stairs.

Before I could get to her she

was on the stage.

Oh God. Sweat is beading on

my forehead. My mind races

with thoughts of the the audience

judging me. Vittoria ran to

the back, waved at one musician

came back to the front to play

with something on the stage and

then ran off to the other side

where I managed to grab her.

She didn’t touch any

instruments or get me into

trouble, so all good.

Bring on the next show.

OUR PEOPLE – Matthew Horncastle

Rolling the sleeves up and doing the

Matthew Horncastle,

25, has set himself and

his company Williams

Corporation a goal of

building 500 homes

in Auckland and

Christchurch per year.

He talks to Julia Evans

about his motivation,

controversy and his

iconic last name

Have you always lived in

Christchurch?

I grew up with my mother in

beautiful Nelson, but I was born

in Christchurch. I lived here

until I was two and my parents

went through a marriage split

and I lived with my mother from

then on until I became an adult.

Christchurch was always a bit of

a home for me because I’d always

see my father every third weekend.

I moved back here when I

was 18. Christchurch always felt

like home.

What drew you back to the

city?

I wasn’t a bad kid but I decided

I didn’t really want to be told

what to do from the age of

about 14. That resulted in me

being kicked out and placed

with extended family when I

was 15 and I left school on my

16th birthday. I got a building

apprenticeship but there were

no jobs in Nelson because it was

a difficult time in the economy.

I was building cowsheds on the

West Coast, living in pubs so that

was a fantastic life experience

because I learnt how to be tough

and strong. Builders are very

good teachers because there is

no political correctness and you

can get a massive amount of life

education in a very short period.

I was very lucky, I had very high

quality people in my life at that

stage, which is very cool. At 17 I

started my own business. In the

weekends I used to build decks

and sheds and fences for people.

I would work all week on a building

site and make $800 and then

I worked out I could make $1000

a day in the weekend. Then I

moved to Christchurch when I

was 18, which is pretty much the

same time the earthquake happened.

As far as my work career,

when I arrived in Christchurch

I started working for someone

else because I needed to get my

contacts in order. I then worked

for myself for a while just as a

contract builder, building houses.

I then spent a year in my father’s

business, which is Horncastle

Homes. It was absolutely fantastic

because I got to learn how a big

business operates and through

a bit of nepotism, I got a very

senior position straight away.

What happened is they had a

construction manager leave, so

they needed someone to come

in and do the job as quickly as

possible. I have always been good

in construction, so even though

there is nepotism, I did the job

extremely well. I wasn’t there

because I have the last name

Horncastle, I was there because

I could roll my sleeves up and

do the work. It was a pretty busy

time because Horncastle Homes

was building 300 homes a year. I

would get phone call every eight

minutes and 150 emails a day

so it was an outrageous time to

work. I loved it but I guess what

I didn’t like about it was that I

couldn’t carve my own destiny.

In that business, I was Bill

Horncastle’s son and I never

thought he was going to retire,

I thought he was going to work

until he was 65. I thought he was

going to spend another 15 years

working, but it actually turned

out being only about four. And,

actually, I don’t like the housing

company model. I don’t like subdivisions,

I don’t like designing

each house individually for each

customer. Everything about it felt

inefficient to me.

How did you start Williams

Corporation?

From there I left Horncastle

Homes after a year and with my

business partner Blair Chappell

we created Williams Corporation.

That was collection of

different companies. At the time

we didn’t know we were going to

be property developers. We had

skips, did waste management,

we sold solar panels, we sold IT

solutions, we sold composite

decking and then we did property

on the side. We used to buy

houses, renovate them and sell

them. Then what happened was

we found a little bit of success

but we thought success was when

you have a big office with lots

of staff and you have reception

person and an accounts person.

We got caught up in this idea

that you build a business that

doesn’t need you and you sit on

the beach drinking margaritas

while everyone else makes you

money, we got caught up in that

Hollywood version of a business.

HANDS-ON:

Matthew

Horncastle

is passionate

about

developing

affordable

housing in the

central city.

So we employed all these people,

made all these businesses and realised

we were losing money. We

had to sit down and realise, hold

on, this has been a disaster, we’ve

lost all the money we’ve ever

made, we could go broke if we

don’t make some serious changes.

What do we do now? We looked

back at everything we’d done

and property was always a good

vessel for us. The deals we did in

property were always profitable

and strong, the customers did

well and we were very good at it.

So we thought hold on, let’s just

go all in on property. We closed

all of our other businesses, we

had to get rid of about 30 staff

and went all in on being a lean,

efficient property business. About

three years ago we started going

high density because we didn’t

like the subdivision model but we

knew New Zealand wasn’t ready

for big apartment buildings.

work comes through motivation

We were trying to find an

in-between, so we started

building these townhouses and

it really started when we did

our development in Latimer

Square. We did 10 one-bedroom

townhouses and sold it in 72

hours. That was when we knew

we were onto something, we’ve

found a piece of the market that

no one else is doing properly.

From there we’ve just built and

refined. In the last 12 months

we’ve sold 150 homes, which is

about $65–70 million.

Do you think the Matthew

Horncastle building cowsheds

on the West Coast would have

ever imagined himself where

you are now?

I was never short of confidence,

I always believed in myself and

thought I could do good things.

But when you get those really

hard knocks in life, things

change. Life is about goals

and progress and living up to

your potential. Now I’ve got

momentum I can always see the

next goal and the next process,

I make sure I’ve got very strong

goals. I’ve definitely had two

quite noticeable stages in my life

where I was lost. One was almost

going broke and one was just

before I started working. I think

the building apprenticeship was

one of the most powerful things

that happened in my life.

COMPLETE: In the last 12 months, Williams Corporation has sold 150 homes.

How many sites do you

currently have under

construction?

We have 137 under

construction, another 100 in

council waiting for consents and

then we have another 100 where

we are negotiating land purchases.

What is your proudest

moment?

When we had that tough

financial time and we started

doing the high density, that was

when we recovered. My proudest

moment would be when we’d just

finished a round of high density

homes and we had purchased

the site on 2 Latimer Square.

The financial pressure was off

and we’d purchased a beautiful

site, a really high quality piece

of land in Christchurch and we

were going to do a $4 million

development and the business

would have to go forward – it

wasn’t fixing problems anymore.

You sort of just sat there and

looked out over the city and there

was this sense that we’re going

to get there. We’ve learnt the

lessons. That was six years into

the business. I’d done the hard

yards and from there we were

going to do some special stuff.

That Latimer Square site has been

really special to me because it was

this symbolic moment. You’re

always walking up a hill, but

when we did that development,

we’d broken through and became

forces to be reckoned with in the

construction industry.

What are your goals?

We probably have the team

and resource to do 300 homes

a year. But I’ve just set the goal

at 500 because I like working

towards unattainable goals. I

want to be doing 22 a month in

Christchurch and 22 a month in

Auckland. That’s cool, my brain

enjoys working on a problem

that it struggles to solve. All

other goals outside of work, I’m

probably five years away from

committing to serious personal

goals. I love working, I try to get

away each month that could be as

simple as a night in Akaroa or as

crazy as four days in Vegas.

Did you always want to build

houses even as a child?

There was a small time when I

was young when I wanted to be

a marine biologist. I used to love

going down to the rock pools

in Nelson, catching fish and

putting them in my aquarium

at home. But my father sat me

down and explained to me that

I would have to work for the

Government and I wouldn’t have

very much money so I revisited

my life goals. I always wanted to

be in business. All my family is

in construction, my mother is a

property developer, my father,

aunties, uncles. It’s like I’m

choosing construction because

its been the dinner table topic

forever. There’s pictures of me on

building sites in baby backpacks.

So it made sense to me to go

into construction because I’m

naturally good at it. I think it was

a confidence thing, when I tried

to start all those other businesses

I thought if I succeed and excel in

another industry, I succeeded on

my own. But as you grow, all of

those insecurities vanish.

The Men’s RooM

A comedy by Patrick evans | Directed by Alistair Bean

Set in 1992, The Men’s Room, is an affectionate comedy about six

blokes coming to grips with life after feminism.

Their regular self-styled group bonding sessions have been meeting

regularly for the past 10-15 years, sharing and convincing themselves

they are helping each other with life’s big issues including their marital and

relationship issues, with varying degrees of success.

Tonight, it is Clipboard carrying Stuart’s turn to host. So, lets the scene

for you:

When Sam turns up first, he finds Stuart in a frilly apron doing the ironing

and three quarters of the furniture is missing.

As it turns out, ‘Sexy Sam’, as he is known, he isn’t staying, he just

popped in for a little ‘pre-date’ moral support.

Enter, the rest of ‘The Blokes’:

Bill who just wants to be everyone’s friend and thinks it’s ‘Dress Up’

Night, Basil with his apple crumble and his trusty old Solex

Norman whose has no time for political correctness and whose wife has,

not surprisingly, left him recently.

That now only leaves first timer, Frank.

The new member straight from Auckland who offers ‘The Men’s Room’

lads an alternative vision of the path to becoming a real man which seems

to have something to do with an encounter with a amorous bear.

Left to right: Alistair Bean (Director), David Mitchell (Stage Manger), Sam (Regan

Harding), Stuart (Thad Hadaway), Bill (John Daniels), Frank (Tam Vosper), Professor

Patrick Evans (Playwright), Basil (Russell Haigh), Norman (Simeon Wilson)

What could possibly go wrong?

There’s lots of “gender sensitive” fun, Laugh out loud hilarity, a little bit

to offend here and there, and plenty of comedic moments, within this well

crafted play by award winning Christchurch professor and playwright,

Patrick Evans.

In the aftermath of a relationship breakup and this somewhat traumatic

glimpse of men behaving likes prats during his one and only encounter with

a ‘Men’s Group’, Evans wrote The Men’s Room, an affectionate comedy

about six blokes having trouble coming to grips with life after feminism.

What emerges are two perspectives of politicised correctness and a

confused human need. It is basically a satire. It pokes gentle fun at the New

Zealand bloke but also questions sex roles.

Patrick has taught New Zealand literature at the University of Canterbury

since 1978. His plays have been performed in both New Zealand and

Australia and include: Cold Turkey and Stuff: A Play on Words. Most

recently, the award winning Gifted, based on his 2010 novel about Janet

Frame and Frank Sargeson.

For a entertaining night of great theatre, join us for “The Mens Room” at

OUR PEOPLE

‘We actually have a city, that’s really special to me’

•From page 19

How do you deal with the

controversies around properties

such as Hagley Ave and Perth St

where people have been critical

of the developments?

In the beginning I handled

it really poorly, it used to really

frustrate me and made me really

angry. Now, I always just think I

wish you could understand why

we need high density housing. I

get their opinion, I get why they

don’t want more people on their

street, I get they liked the trees

that used to be on the site, I get

that they think that having less

car parks on the street might

mean their guests won’t get a

park. I understand how they

see it but when you start seeing

how many people we have to

house in a lifetime and what

the repercussions will be if we

don’t build affordable housing

and let families live in these old,

damp, cold houses, it’s absolutely

awful. High density housing is

the answer to such a massive

problem we’re going to have.

Some people can get really upset

about it but then things like the

horrible shootings happen and

people sort of reset and realise

this isn’t the biggest problem in

the world. Every now and then

I’m just gutted. They attack you

with fake facts. They’ll be saying

this development has no parking,

I hear they’re $600,000 and are

all AirBnB. Actually there’s one

SOLD: Matthew and his

business partner Blair

housing in and around the

central city.

car park for every unit, they’re

$400,000 and there’s no AirBnB.

They get themselves angry on

these facts that aren’t even real.

What’s your favourite part

about Christchurch and what’s

your least favourite part?

I love a Saturday afternoon

walking or Liming around the

river, stopping in at one of the

bars, having a glass of wine and a

cheeseboard seeing people living

their life. I’ve been living in the

city for three-and-a-half years

now and when I first came into

the city there was no one there. I

used to take customers through

the city and say The Terraces will

be there, the BNZ Centre will

be here but nothing was there.

But now when I go through

there, there’s actually people,

we actually have a city, that’s

really special to me, like we’ve

actually broken the back of the

rebuild. One thing I don’t like, I

think Christchurch people need

a stronger belief in themselves.

I’ve travelled to lots and lots of

countries and I know what we

have here is pretty special. I think

we need to stop and say hold on,

what we have is special and this

is somewhere people want to

move to and we do need to make

world-class facilities and we do

need lots of houses for people to

live here and we do need to do all

these things.

What is the importance of

developing housing in the

central city?

It’s everything. Housing

affordability will be the greatest

issue faced in our lifetime. The

current world population is 7.5

billion, before the end of the

century it’s going to exceed 11

billion. On top of that we have all

sorts of other factors demanding

housing. We pretty much need

to house something to the tune

of four billion people before I

die. At the current rate, if we

decide everyone’s going to live

on a 600 sq m section, one hour

from town with two cars and

180 sq m house, if we don’t do it

more efficiently, there will be a

disaster. The resources required

are absolutely ridiculous. There’s

all these issues that stem from

housing that can be resolved if

with affordable, efficient, high

density, central homes it would

just have a massive impact on

happiness, excess time, what

they can spend their resources

on. If you’re not choking on a

$600,000 mortgage, you can

spend more time travelling, start

that business or spend more time

with your sick mother.

What do you do on a day off?

Hobbies?

I try and always travel. I make

sure I read a book a week, that

that’s only recent. I used to read

12 books a year. I am a bit strict

though, I love building and

construction. When I have a

day off I’ll go hang out with my

lawyer and my business partner,

Blair. There’s not like there’s this

differentiation between work and

play, it all blurs together.

SELF & OTHERS

10 WAYS OF

SHOWING

COMPASSION

Compassion is a genuine sympathy for hardship or suffering

that other people are experiencing, and a desire to ease that

pain. There are many different ways to show compassion for

others; the important thing is that it comes from your heart.

Ignore differences and find commonalities to help you relate

to what someone else is going through. No matter who you are

interacting with, there are common steps one can take.

1START WITH YOURSELF. The best way to learn

how to be compassionate toward others is to be

compassionate with yourself. Praise yourself for your

successes and forgive yourself for your mistakes. Focus

on your strengths and positive qualities.

2COMMUNICATE VERBALLY AND NON-

VERBALLY. Make eye contact, keep your body turned

toward the person speaking, and listen quietly. You

might also practice active listening, which involves

paraphrasing what you’ve just heard, and ask open-ended

questions to send the message that you’re ready to hear more.

3TOUCH (IF APPROPRIATE). A gentle touch goes

a long way. To be sure touch is welcome, ask first. Try

“Would you like a hug?” or “May I touch your shoulder?”

Gentle touch assists in balancing physical, mental,

emotional, and spiritual well-being. A soft touch to the hand

or shoulder during the conversation helps demonstrate your

genuine care and concern.

4ENCOURAGE OTHERS. When we praise and

encourage others, we can sometimes kick-start a positive

spiral of behavior in that person which provides hope

toward the current circumstances.

5EXPRESS YOURSELF. Don’t assume that because

you’re dealing with someone else’s strong emotions,

your own emotions have no place in the interaction.

Match your facial expressions to your felt emotions to

let another person know you understand what they are going

through. A sincere smile often works wonders. It is also okay to

show sadness by crying or to laugh without reservation. A good

laugh can be incredibly healing.

6SHOW KINDNESS. Give your kindness away without

expecting anything back. Kindness is contagious. The

person you are being kind to benefits through your help

and you’ll feel good for having helped someone. The

world is made better through your kindness.

7RESPECT PRIVACY. Be attentive to someone’s personal

privacy. Protect their dignity. Shut the door, pull the

curtain, and don’t gossip. Remember that sometimes

people just need to go for a walk or see a movie with a

friend. Be ready to listen when they want to talk, but also offer a

different kind of interaction if they don’t want to talk about the

hard stuff.

8LEARN HOW TO ADVOCATE. An advocate is

a person who speaks up for and defends the rights

of another person by helping them communicate

their needs in a challenging situation. To effectively

advocate, you must actively listen to what the person needs and

communicate in an assertive and respectful manner to help them

take advantage of resources in the community.

9VOLUNTEER. Cultivate compassion through volunteer

service. Volunteering connects you to others, giving you

the opportunity to make new friends and increase your

social skills. Spending time helping people is good for

your body, mind, and soul.

10

CONSIDER YOUR WORDS. Think before you

speak. At its heart, compassion is about paying

attention to the present moment with a loving

attitude. Simple things like turning off your cell

phone during a personal encounter or sending a thank-you note

after someone has you over for dinner can go a long way.

WOOLSTON

A community garden needs a group which is able

to come in and work up a sweat to get ground

ready to plant, move existing compost - putting

together a new compost bin area would be a

bonus ... once set up, this area has the potential to

be a great place for people to meet, greet and grow

things to eat and share in the community.

Also on this site, there is a real need for a fence to

be built to provide a safe outdoor area for ‘break

time’ during their toddler music and movement

group. An existing playhouse, if able to be

repaired, could be a great asset to this area. But

perhaps it will need removing - could you help

with that?

Pick one of the projects outlined above - or just

a piece of it - or, if you are located in or around

Woolston, let’s talk about how you might have an

ongoing role in creating a real community asset.

BURWOOD

Hospital courtyard gardens really enhance the

stay of patients and their visitors too! Do you

have a group who could give a half day - or a day!

- to do some general tidying up in these areas ....

weeding, pruning, etc.

Contact: Glenda outreach@volcan.org.nz

ADOPT-A-SITE

Throughout the year we look for volunteers to

staff street appeal sites - this is a great way to

support a community group without having

your whole team ‘out of action’ at the same time,

while still being part of the same project. We can

allocate a site to your team which you then sort

the roster for ... and we encourage you to ‘logo’ up

to show the community how you are involved.

Check the list of upcoming appeals listed below.

Interested, let Glenda know today: outreach@

volcan.org.nz

IMPACT INVESTMENT

Your organisation’s effort in the community

makes an impact. We are here to help you make

that investment of your team’s time a worthwhile

one for them as well as an investment in impact

within the community.

Where possible we will be aligning available

projects with the United Nations’ Sustainable

Development Goals - which means that while

your group or business is providing a team

building and/or wellbeing initiative, it will also

be able to identify the area of impact which the

group is having globally!

CURTAIN BANK

Feeling the cold? One way to keep homes warmer

is quality curtains! The Curtain Bank would

welcome your group to come and give them

a hand; generous donations of curtains need

organising, measuring, sorting ...

COMMUNITY LUNCHES

There are a number of community lunches

which take place on a regular basis around the

city, for example, every Friday in Richmond.

We can often find one requiring assistance on a

day that suits your group. Contact us for more

information. outreach@volcan.org.nz Most

kitchens have a capacity for groups of up to 6

people.

Assistance required with community lunches in St

Albans area:

3 April; 15 May; 7 August; 18 September; 30

October; 11 December

Tasks: assisting with set up, preparation of food,

serving of food, clean-up at end of lunch; 11am -

1.30pm.

Weeding, clearing areas and re-planting projects

are ongoing at places including Orana Park,

FAMILIES

PROPERTY SHARING IN

NEW RELATIONSHIPS

It can often be difficult to tell whether

you’re in a qualifying relationship that

might trigger the equal sharing provisions

of our relationship property laws. Many

enter into new relationships, thinking

their relationship is more of a close

friendship, rather than something akin

to marriage. The trouble is, should that

relationship end, the other person (and/or

their family) doesn’t always agree. Assets

you own (even if they’re in your sole

name) could be subject to a claim which

can have a serious financial impact on

retirement plans.

Under the Property (Relationships)

Act 1976 (“the Act”), a qualifying de

facto relationship is defined as being

a relationship of three years or more.

In determining whether a de facto

relationship exists the Court takes into

account various factors listed in the Act.

You might be surprised to learn that

you can be held to be living together

even though you don’t share the same

residence. In certain circumstances

physical intimacy is also not a

precondition of living together.

If your relationship does qualify under

the Act, the starting point for the sharing

of relationship assets is 50 / 50. That may

not be what either of you want or intend

so it may be worthwhile for you and your

partner to consider entering into a written

agreement to determine how assets will

be dealt with should your relationship

end. The Act makes specific provision for

contracting out of its consequences. This

is something you should discuss together

in the early stages of your relationship

so both parties understand and agree on

what will happen should you separate or

become unable to fully participate in joint

decision making.

To comply with the Act any Agreement

requires certification by two independent

lawyers. In practice they will draft an

Agreement to reflect the outcomes you

want to achieve against a background of

the Act. You and your partner must see

and be advised by different lawyers. This

ensures that both parties get the correct

advice and understand exactly what is

contained in the Agreement before signing

it.

Significantly, the Act also affects the

division of property on the death of a

spouse or de facto partner. A surviving

partner has an option of whether to accept

an inheritance under the Will of the

deceased partner, or make a claim under

the Act for their share of the relationship

property.

The golden rule in all cases is to get good

advice so that you have peace of mind in

all your arrangements as you approach

and enjoy your retirement.

MARINE HEATWAVES

THREATEN GLOBAL

BIODIVERSITY

Extreme weather events occur in the oceans

as well as the atmosphere. Marine heatwaves –

periods of unusually high temperatures – are

increasing in frequency, with 54% more heatwave

days per year from 1987–2016 than from 1925–

1954, yet their impacts on species and ecosystems

are poorly known.

A new paper, co-authored by University of

Canterbury scientist Dr Mads Thomsen, recently

published online in Nature Climate Change is

the first to compare the strength and impacts of

prominent marine heatwaves, reporting negative

impacts on a broad range of marine organisms,

possibly with major socioeconomic ramifications.

The global study, led by Dr Dan Smale of the

Marine Biological Association (United Kingdom)

and involving scientists from seven countries

including Aotearoa New Zealand, found

that marine heatwaves vary in their physical

manifestations, yet they all affect important

biological organisms and alter the functioning of

ecosystems.

The research team documented trends and

attributes of prominent marine heatwaves across

ocean basins, and their biological impacts on

species and ecosystems. They found that many

regions within the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian

Oceans are particularly vulnerable to future

marine heatwaves, because of overlapping levels

of high biodiversity, other types of human impacts

and a prevalence of species found near their

warm-thermal limits. Although the analysed

marine heatwaves varied in strength and spatial

extents, effects were generally harmful across

biological processes and organisms, including

critical species like corals, seagrasses and kelps.

“Marine ecosystems face many threats, such as

invasions by non-native species, overfishing,

acidification and pollution, but shorter periods of

unusually high temperatures is now also a welldocumented

cause of rapid biological changes,

sometimes leading to loss of habitat, reduced

fisheries or even local extinctions,” says marine

biologist Dr Mads Thomsen, from the University

of Canterbury’s College of Science.

Dr Thomsen says analysing extreme temperature

events on a global scale turned out to be

surprisingly relevant for local research in New

Zealand, which last year experienced the hottest

summer on record. So far, these very recent strong

heatwaves from New Zealand have, in contrast

to the heatwaves analysed in the Nature Climate

Change publication, not been studied much, he

says.

“However, early evidence suggests rapid changes

to local marine systems, including plankton,

fish and kelp. Indeed, a key take-home message

from the Nature Climate Change publication

is that many more studies should report on

temperature-driven rapid biological changes

with rigorous scientific methods, to improve our

ability to understand and predict future ecosystem

functioning.”

The authors conclude that climate change will

continue to increase the frequency and strengths

of heatwaves and that associated impacts on

marine habitats will likely have wide-reaching and

cascading effects on the functions these habitats

provide.

THE MANY

BENEFITS

OF

EXERCISE

With the release of the Ministry

of Health’s Healthy Ageing

Strategy in 2017 there is an

increased focus on living not

just longer but maintaining

health and wellbeing by

creating opportunities in a

range of areas for older people.

While medical care and access

to medical services is an

important part of the strategy,

the focus is also on developing

communities, encouraging

active and connected lives and

preventative services.

However, adults aged 65 years

and over are more likely to be

sedentary than those under

65 years. These activity rates

decline even more as adults

aged 75 years and over, are less

likely to be physically active

than those under 75 years.

Older adults that are not active

are missing out on many of the

benefits of being active, and

it’s not just about being able to

live a full life. There are very

real benefits to all aspects of life

that sedentary older adults are

missing out on through their

inactivity.

Any physical activity is better

than none at al. It can be as

simple as aiming to sit less and

get out and about more, adding

movement into everyday tasks,

as well as seeking opportunities

for more structured exercise.

Many exercise facilities,

recreation centres and pools

offer classes

and sessions

that are

most

suitable

for the

older

exerciser.

While exercising can be added

to regular tasks, the advantages

of getting involved with a

facility or group are many

including being able to access

expert advice, and it has been

proven that spending time with

others adds to our sense of

wellbeing.

The Healthy Ageing Strategy

vision is that “older people

live well, age well, and have

a respectful end of life in

age-friendly communities”, it

seeks to maximise health and

wellbeing for all older people.

A range of physical activities

is best, allowing variety and

benefits across a range of

activity areas. Anything that

gets your heart rate up and

makes your breathing heavier

will have a positive effect on

aerobic levels and heart health.

Balance exercises will help

prevent falls, and strength

exercises can assist with

maintaining posture and help

with daily tasks.

If you are a senior and new to

exercising, it is wise to start off

slowly. Do speak to your doctor

before starting or increasing

physical activity. They are

likely to be supportive of your

increased activity and can offer

advice on making sure any

medical conditions or injuries

are managed.

The Ministry of Health suggest

older adults do 30 minutes of

moderate physical activity on

5 days or more per week. They

have several resources available

at their website to help you on

your way to physical activity as

an older adult.

based

exercise

options, and

with proven

benefits and

results, it can

be tempting to

think the days

of pure strength

and resistance

training in a

traditional gym

environment are

losing popularity.

Resistance training

is still an important part of maintaining

health, with new benefits recently

discovered. Resistance training has always

been known to have a range of benefits,

from younger people looking for strength

gains, through to seniors looking for

balance and independence. The benefits

have generally been shown alongside other

activities that get your heart rate up for an

extended period.

However, according to recent research

reported out of Iowa State University, as

little as an hour a week of lifting weights

results in a 40 - 70% reduction in heart

attack or stroke risk independent of other

exercise.

Of course, exercise should not be about

doing the minimum amount of work

required to receive results. Many of

the values of movement are about the

experience while doing it, including the

social benefits of being with others, and

the mood enhancing benefits of being

active.

But with cardiovascular disease, including

heart attacks and stroke being the leading

cause of death in developed countries,

anything that can contribute to a decrease

in mortality is worth paying attention to.

The less time required for results makes

achieving the level required more realistic

for those who are time poor or lack

motivation.

While weight training can be done

anywhere that resistance is available,

using an exercise facility or studio offers a

variety and range of equipment not found

elsewhere. Having a dedicated place to

go also allows a more structured routine

which can help with adherence.

So add reducing the risk of heart disease

to your reasons for lifting weights, along

with the ones we already know:

• Regular strength training can increase

bone density and reduce the risk of

osteoporosis.

• Strength training can assist with weight

management as it can increase your

metabolism which will help you burn

more calories.

• Strength training makes your life easier

by improving your ability to do a range of

everyday activities.

• Balance is improved with stronger

muscles which can reduce risk of falls.

This is especially important for older

adults who risk losing independence with

lack of strength and balance.

• Many ongoing physical health conditions

can be managed better and reduced by

regular strength training.

The benefits of strength training are

not just proven for those who remain

active and injury free; there is increasing

understanding that exercise, including

strength training, can benefit a range of

specific health conditions, especially those

that are prevalent in older adults such as

arthritis, and Parkinson’s disease.

Traditionally older adults have been

recommended to do light aerobic work

to improve heart health and balance

to decrease the chance of falls. While

these two components are still regarded

as important, there is also a benefit in

participating in strength training which

involves using resistance while exercising.

This can be exercises with weights, but

there are plenty of other options too.

Strength training is not ‘one size fits all’

and as with any physical activity, has

some risks. However, by working with

an appropriately qualified and registered

exercise professional, the exercise and

activity can be customised to your specific

needs, exercise and medical history, thus

minimising risk and maximising results.

It’s never too late to get started into

strength training, so regardless of your

age, today is a great day to gets started!

LET’S TALK

ELECTRIC

11

LIVING

LIFE

BY ROSS KIDDIE

Electric vehicles are the big talking point. As

concern grows over climate change there is a

greater awareness on how we view transport.

Mitsubishi Motors entered the electric revolution

early with its cheeky iMiEV i-Car, since then it

has concentrated largely on the plug-in hybrid

Outlander, a vehicle which needs no introduction

here with over 1000 units sold in the New Zealand

market.

While that figure doesn’t seem remarkable against

150,000 units globally, it is good when you take

into consideration Kiwis are only just getting their

heads around hybrids and electric vehicles in total.

Mitsubishi Motors New Zealand has just recently

made buying an Outlander PHEV even more

tempting; as you would expect with scale of

economies, the price is lowering, the range-topping

PHEV VRX for 2019 is now listed at $55,990,

which by my reckoning is amazing value for

money.

The concept, shape and ease of use of the new

Outlander PHEV hasn’t changed one bit, but it

is more refined, and there have been engineering

changes to improve comfort and stability along

with greater steering response.

That, along with some minor cosmetic

enhancements, make the model even more

desirable, and you also need to remember that the

Outlander, even in this form, is a capable crosscountry

vehicle with propulsion also delivered to

the rear through an electric motor.

Like most modern electric vehicles, the Outlander

PHEV has a fast charge connection and AC

charging socket which offers drivers the best of

both worlds – the ability to charge overnight (6.5

hours from empty), along with fast charging from

the nationwide roadside network.

However, there’s more to PHEV than just plugging

in, charging and then driving off, the hybrid

system is true hybrid. Under the bonnet sits a

four-cylinder, 2-litre engine which is rated at 88kW.

It’s there to charge the batteries when they run

low, as well as providing drive if there is no charge

available. These functions are available to the driver

at will, there are console-mounted buttons to either

save battery charge or charge batteries through

forced introduction of the petrol engine.

Amidst the complexity of the hybrid system the

PHEV is capable of returning some amazing fuel

usage statistics through the varying drive modes.

At best possible usage, Mitsubishi rates the PHEV

at an amazing 1.7-litres per 100km (166mpg).

That, of course, can only be achieved under certain

circumstances, but on a daily commute it can’t be

ruled out.

An overnight charge will cost around $3,

depending on your service provider, and it is good

for a 54km journey, electric propulsion is the

priority. However, bear in mind that if you drive

on petrol power the Outlander PHEV is good for

almost 600km on a tankful. New Zealand is rolling

out many fast charge stations on major routes so, if

you are on journey, a 20min time frame should be

expected to charge from zero to 80 per cent.

Even though the Outlander PHEV is a complicated

car and takes some understanding, buyers needn’t

be put off by its complexity. If you just get in and

drive it, it quickly becomes familiar and drives little

differently to the standard vehicle it is based on.

There’s been a common misconception that you

have to drive hybrids long distances to recapture

the cost of purchase.

That’s now not the case with the Outlander PHEV.

It comes from a seriously good price of $50,990

(XLS), and it would most definitely be my choice.

The evaluation car was VRX-specced, which

adds an extra $5000, and for that you get all the

Mitsubishi high-grade kit which has it sitting on

the outer periphery of the luxury car market.

If you think that longevity is a worry, take into

account that Mitsubishi incorporates an eightyear/160,000

drive battery warranty and a fiveyear/100,000

mechanical warranty. Peace of mind

really.

GARDENING

Setting up small spaces in your back yard

• By Hannah Zwartz

WHAT’S A ‘small’ garden?

Usually urban, it could be many

things – a strip between front

fence and veranda, a pocketsized

backyard, a courtyard or

patio, or even a balcony.

What all small gardens have

in common is that (as with tiny

houses) every centimetre counts.

Design needs to be pared back

and concentrated, including only

what’s essential.

There’s something very restful

about this. The beauty of a small

garden is you can probably

spend more per square metre

on soil, paving and plants.

Less weeding and watering

means more time to relax and

appreciate your sanctuary.

And the more urban your

environment, the more valuable

your green space becomes.

Making your space a

pleasurable place to be starts

with the physical elements: sun/

shade, wind, views and access

to water (see the list on page

53 for hints on mapping these).

Then there are the human needs.

What do you use the garden

for – cooking and entertaining?

A private retreat? Extra living

space? A wild space for kids to

play? Growing vegetables, fruit

or herbs? Even a small garden

space can meet all these needs.

Built-in structures need to

multitask. Steps and decking

can double as seating, as can

generous built-in edges on a

raised bed or sandpit. Screens

to give privacy (or hide the

bins) can double as supports

for cucumbers or sweet peas.

For shade structures, adaptable

options like umbrellas,

retractable awnings/sails or

pergolas planted with deciduous

vines give you options for more

sun in winter and less in summer.

When it comes to planting,

choose carefully. Cramming lots

of different colours and textures

into a small area is like a room

filled with clutter – it makes the

space seem smaller. Growing

in pots gives you the chance to

change things around, but a few

large pots are easier to care for

than many little ones, which dry

out quickly.

Simplifying your planting

palette can make a small space

look bigger. Plants with large

leaves, such as monstera, fig

or taro, seem to be closer than

they are, so backing them with

fine-textured plants creates an

illusion of distance.

Blur the boundaries by

covering at least some of the

walls or fences with vines, or

tall upright plants like rushes

or bamboo (well-contained to

prevent a takeover). Look at the

plants’ eventual size and choose

those that won’t outgrow their

space.

Small gardens often have

corners of full shade, so avoid

slippery paving in these areas.

Instead, make the most of them

for shade-loving plants like ferns

and mosses, which hate to dry

out.

Even a small garden has room

for edibles – maybe not all your

favourite vegetables, but you can

start with fresh salad greens and

herbs.

Lots of veges thrive in

containers, and dwarf fruit trees

can grow in a barrel if given

plenty of liquid feed.

If you only have room for

one fruit tree, choose your very

favourite – for me, it would

have to be a lemon tree for the

fragrance of its flowers as well as

the flavour of its fruits.

The West Coast – a place

to relax and reconnect

After a busy start to the year, the April school holidays is

a perfect time to escape to the beautiful West Coast. Leave

the screens and pressures of the day-to-day at home and

reconnect with your family and whānau in the untamed,

natural wilderness and wonder of the West Coast.

Head west, and in less than three hours you will find

yourself in Moana, the township at Lake Brunner – an

outdoor playground for locals and visitors. Lake Brunner

has a range of accommodation to suit all tastes and

budgets. It’s also a fisherman’s dream, where they say that

‘trout die of old age’ and better yet, it can be fished all year,

in almost any weather. With professional guides on hand to

demonstrate, it’s a great activity to do as a family. Fishing

aside, a visit to the Lake Brunner area is a must-do in any

event. It offers swimming, jet boating, and water skiing

along with some lovely scenic walks and cycling tracks of

various levels of difficulty to explore with your family.

Keep going a little further and you will arrive in the largest

town on the West Coast, Greymouth. Greymouth and the

surrounding Grey Valley offer adventure activities, heritage

attractions and guided nature tours. Cycle parts of the West

Coast Wilderness Trail, a nice easy track that allows you to

go at your own pace and take in the surroundings.

Or keep the history lessons going and visit Shanytown,

a replica of an 1880s’ gold town, where the kids can pan

for their own gold. The opportunities for adventure are

seemingly endless; get muddy on a quad bike tour, go

caving or white-water rafting or head up the Croesus Track

for a very scenic full day hike.

Of course the holidays are not just about the kids; local

brewery Monteith’s is something of a New Zealand legend.

It runs tours that include a tasting session.

Both Greymouth and Moana are stops on the TranzAlpine

train journey, recognised as one of the top train trips in the

world. To make your trip truly memorable, leave the keys at

home and take in the stunning sights with the excitement

and novelty of a train ride.

Escape to the West Coast these holidays – the beauty and

tranquillity of this little corner of our country makes for a

chance to slow down, enjoy each other’s company, create

memories and just have fun.

BE THE ONE

THAT GOT AWAY

ESCAPE TO LAKE BRUNNER THESE HOLIDAYS

Whether it’s to take the kids fishing,

explore the stunning cycling and

walking tracks, or just spend some

quality time together, Lake Brunner

is the perfect outdoor playground

for your family these holidays.

WestCoast.co.nz

Less than 3 hours from Christchurch

will find you in the Moana township

with ample accommodation and

restaurants. Or for a truly memorable

experience take the world famous

TranzAlpine train.

GETAWAY TO THE WEST COAST

A real sense of pioneer

New Zealand

While the South Island’s West Coast is

well known for its magnificent scenery and

glaciers, no visit to the area is complete without

experiencing Shantytown.

The discovery of gold in 1864 led to a

population “explosion” – from around 300

to almost 30,000 residents. Isolation, rugged

terrain and extreme weather conditions

produced stories of fortitude and ingenuity.

Shantytown tells these stories through a

fascinating mix of experience and displays.

Ride the Steam Train along an original

tramway through native rainforest; experience

the sights and sounds of a working sawmill.

Watch the mighty sluice gun in action then

follow the races and flumes to the gold claim

and learn the technique of how to pan for your

Take in scenic views

from the treetops

Just 15 minutes’ drive south from Hokitika,

visitors have the opportunity to enjoy the

stunning West Coast scenery from a different

perspective – the treetops.

This unique Walk the Tree Tops attraction

features a 1.2km-long walkway situated 20

metres above the ground, giving panoramic

views of the surrounding native bush. It is

reached via a 300-metre walk up a hill, with

complementary golf-cart transport up the hill

available if required.

Eleven stop points along the walkway have

plaques with information on what can be

seen from that point. In addition, visitors can

climb a 47-metre-high tower, which offers

own gold – a strike is guaranteed!

The beautiful setting on over 200 hectares

acres of native rainforest offers a feeling of

remoteness, while only 10 minutes from the

seaside town of Greymouth. The rainforest

is easily accessible with short bush walks and

trails around the park.

The village, born of the gold rush, offers

delicious refreshments from King Dick’s Cafe,

while the kids can enjoy the flying fox, or try

their hand at the gold-rush Treasure Hunt.

For a memento of your visit to Shantytown

nothing is better than to grab a costume and

get an old time photo.

With over 30 shops and buildings to explore,

there’s so much to see and do at Shantytown.

360-degree views of the Southern Alps, the

Tasman Sea and Lake Mahinapua.

After completing the excursion, visitors can

enjoy refreshments at the delightful on-site

café, which offers a wide selection of delicious

food, and also has a liquor licence.

Heli-flights over the mountains and lakes

are being introduced in a few weeks, adding a

further opportunity to enjoy the West Coast’s

spectacular landscape.

Walk the Tree Tops is open every day except

Christmas Day. Entrance fees are $32 for adults,

$29 for seniors 60+, $16 for children, $77 for a

family pass – two adults, two children. Annual

passes are available at the same prices.

The newly refurbished Monteith’s Brewing

Company offers a fascinating brewery

experience in the heart of Greymouth.

Visitors can explore the traditions and

heritage of the brewing establishment and

taste their famous craft brews and modern

food.

The guided brewery tour starts with an

introduction into the origins of Monteith’s,

which started in 1868 on the West Coast. The

tour takes visitors into the brewery where

they can see, touch, taste and smell the New

Zealand-grown ingredients used to make the

range of craft beers.

A walk through the brew house and

packaging house with the expert guide will

reveal the process involved with crafting the

150-year- old beer recipes and the modern

additions. Video, visual and verbal prompts

Loosehead Loe: Crusader No 1

• By Gordon Findlater

BY VIRTUE of starting at

loosehead prop in the Crusaders’

first game in 1996, Stu Loe

is technically No 1 on the

franchise’s list of players.

The former prop made 26

appearances for the Crusaders

over a three-year span, including

their first ever outing which

saw them play the Chiefs. Since

hanging up the boots in 1999, he

has returned to his roots on the

family farm in Scargill, North

Canterbury.

Growing up on the family

farm, Loe first played rugby

as a six-year-old. However, he

stopped playing for a number

of years until he took rugby

up again while boarding at

Christchurch Boys’ High School.

“I really loved it there. In the

hostel there was probably 20 to

25 in each age group, and with

most of us being country boys,

we always played a lot of footy.

It was pretty competitive,” said

Loe.

“I always hoped I’d be a

flanker, but I wasn’t fast enough.”

Following secondary school,

Loe worked as a stock agent in

Christchurch and played club

rugby for High School Old Boys

before being posted in Hawarden

for work in 1986. Back in North

Canterbury, Loe joined the

Glenmark Rugby Club, and later

became president. He is still on

the committee as a life member.

During the early 1990s,

Loe established himself as

Canterbury’s top loosehead prop.

The early 90s wasn’t a flash

time to be in the Canterbury

team actually, because we didn’t

perform that well. Then Vance

Stewart came on board with

Aussie [Brian McLean] and

they realised something wasn’t

right, so they started changing

things and recruiting players in

positions we were deficient,” he

said.

The changes in Canterbury led

to the side winning the Ranfurly

Shield in 1994 and holding high

hopes of a successful first season

in Super Rugby. However, the

side would go on to win just

the Crusaders scrum through their first three years of Super Rugby. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

two games and finish last in the

inaugural 1996 campaign.

Before the game went

professional, Loe was leasing

a farm and working as a lamb

drafter at the freezing works.

However, he gave up his job at

the works to concentrate on

rugby and farming.

“Obviously it [training] wasn’t

to the level it is today, but it

was quite a good distraction in

the fact that we didn’t get too

consumed in playing footy dayin,

day-out,” said Loe.

“We made huge strides because

we hadn’t trained to any degree

of the level we went to. Auckland

were the benchmark back then,

they were pretty much semiprofessional

already. We stepped

up to their level initially and they

stepped it up another level.”

“We tried to keep that amateur

ethos there, but we worked out

pretty quickly that you couldn’t

do what you used to do in the

good old days after the games.”

Loe believes the key factor

to the side going from the

bottom of the heap in 1996 to

champions in 1998 was the work

ethic installed by Wayne Smith,

Peter Sloane, Gilbert Enoka,

and Robbie Deans, and the

homework on opposition done

off the field. While the team had

a professional mentality he said

there was still plenty of room

for having fun. Like many other

players in the Wayne Smith-era

he had the honour of wearing the

Crusaders dick of the day cape.

“I left my number ones

behind hanging in my hotel

room in Durban and we went to

Bloemfontein,” said Loe.

“You could ask whoever

had the cape that day to do

•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

something, obviously as long as

it wasn’t illegal. You always knew

not to push it out too far because

you knew you were going to

eventually wear it at some stage.”

On the field, when it came to

battles in the front row, Loe says

the South African sides were the

toughest.

“A couple of times there was

South African fellas who you

thought really battled away and

then three months later you saw

that they had failed a drugs test.

You realised no wonder it was a

battle that day . . . you couldn’t

wear them down and you’d find

out three months later,” he said.

Following the 1998 season, Loe

wasn’t included in the Crusaders

core squad and was picked up

by the Hurricanes in the player

draft. He played the 1999 season

in Wellington before returning

to North Canterbury where he

played one season for West Coast

before hanging up the boots and

taking up farming full-time.

“We’ve got about 1400 ewes.

We’ll lamb in August and

hopefully get them away before

Christmas,” said Loe.

“I’m third generation on this

farm. I think it was about 1928

my grandfather came here, so

coming up nearly 100 years

here.”

Outside of farming, Loe

has held several roles at the

Glenmark Rugby Club over the

years and coached a number

of teams including Canterbury

Country rep teams. He also

enjoys a round of golf at the local

Scargill Golf Club.

“I think my handicap is on

about 16 or 17 at the moment,”

said Loe.

“It’s a nine hole course. I’ve

actually just stepped down from

being president there.”

After helping fundraise for

the rebuild of the Glenmark

clubrooms after it was burnt

down in 2015, Loe is now

doing the same at the golf club

after the clubrooms there were

wrecked by the 2016 Kaikoura

earthquake.

There’s plenty happening off

farm to keep us busy as far as

local community projects go.”

The Crusaders play the

Hurricanes at 7.35pm

tomorrow in Wellington.

THE WINNER of the

country’s first ever Winter

to be just as talented with

two titles in her first

this week it only seems

fitting our metro rugby

competition is about to

kick-off and display the

effect of its own onesided

affair caused by

scholarships.

Lincoln University will

go for their fifth straight

premier metro title when

the competition kicks off on

Saturday. So, the question

begs, can anyone stop them?

Probably not.

The scary thought for

any opposition is that if

the Crusaders elect to

send some of their fringe

backline players to club

rugby then Lincoln has

the look of a Super Rugby

backline with the likes of

Eri Enari, Brett Cameron,

Caleb Makene and Ngani

Punivai.

coming out of secondary

school this year appears to

local sport

Proudly brought to you by...

Coberger, 47, only

began surfing four years

ago when her husband

convinced her the family

should give it a go.

“I’m just doing it for

fun,” said Coberger.

“I didn’t even really want

to go in the comp, but my

friends made me.”

In the over 40 women’s

longboard Coberger scored

an 11.8 to win ahead of

multiple time senior age

group national champion

Donna Henderson. In

the women’s logger event

Coberger scored a 10.8

to pip Auckland’s Sasha

For 25 years Coberger

remained the only New

Zealander to win a Winter

Olympic medal after her

effort at the 1992 games in

Albertville, France.

She became the first New

Zealander to win a Europa

Cup event and was the slalom

champion in 1991 and

1992. Coberger also briefly

headed the world rankings

in 1992-93.

She narrowly missed a

medal at the 1993 world

when she was ruled to have

missed a gate.

At the 1994 Lillehammer

Olympics she crashed on

scholarship coinciding

with an era of dominance

by Canterbury (nine titles

in 11 years) and the Crusaders

(back to back Super

Rugby titles).

The only question that

remains is if the cost to an

intriguing club competition

is worth the pay-off at

the elite level.

It’s hard to argue against

something that is clearly

benefiting rugby at the

top level in Canterbury.

However, I’d really love

just for once to be looking

ahead to the club season

and genuinely wonder

who might take it out this

season.

Boxing family’s big night

• By Gordon Findlater

news online at www.star.kiwi

SPORT 43

THE BARRY family has

two new life members and a

president following Tuesday

evening’s Canterbury Boxing

Association annual general

meeting.

When Tim Barry was announced

as the association’s new

president, he stepped into a role

both his parents had previously

held. To make the occasion more

special, his first job as president

was to present a life membership

to his mother Myra Barry.

“It was lovely, his father would

have been so proud of him,” said

Mrs Barry.

She also accepted a life

membership award on behalf

of her son Kevin Barry, who is

currently training Joseph Parker

in Las Vegas. They join Tim and

the late Kevin Barry Snr as life

members, leaving just Bryan

Barry, who is a strong candidate

to receive the honour in the

coming years.

“Four out of five is not bad,”

she said.

Mrs Barry’s commitment

to boxing included being the

secretary, treasurer and president

of the Canterbury Boxing

Association, and vice-president

of the New Zealand Boxing Association.

the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic

Games could have made him

more than worthy of a life

membership many years ago.

However, the occasion was saved

so it could be announced alongside

his mother and brother’s

honours.

While Kevin couldn’t be

there to personally accept the

award, he has passed on his

congratulations.

“I’ve had Kevin on the phone

today saying how proud he is of

me for stepping up and doing it,”

said Tim.

Mrs Barry believes Tim will

excel in his new role, with boxing

flowing in his veins from a

very young age.

“His first trip to a boxing tournament

was when he was three.

He was dressed in his whites and

carrying the water bottle,” said

Mrs Barry.

As a life member, she says she

may have to start gracing more

bouts with her presence.

“I just go to the occasional

tournament these days. Now

that I’ve been made a life

member I might have to go to a

couple more,” she said.

GONE: Canterbury Country and Canterbury Metro’s annual

Craw Shield match won’t take place this year due to an

extended Canterbury B season. PHOTO: KAREN CASEY

No country competition

• By Gordon Findlater

CANTERBURY Country and

Canterbury Metro will not clash

for the Craw Shield this year after

a decision was made to scrap the

two representative teams.

The Canterbury Country

Rugby Sub Union made the decision

at a recent board meeting to

scrap both their senior and colts

rep sides this year. It’s understood

the same applied for the

Canterbury Metro senior team.

The contributing reasons for

the decision is an extended Canterbury

B season.

Canterbury Country have also

moved Ellesmere and North

Canterbury’s Southbridge Shield

and Munro Shield matches to

later in the year as opposed to

July and are finding increasing

difficulty in obtaining sponsors

and gaming machine funds.

Canterbury Country sub

union secretary Murray Dulieu

described the board’s decision as

“facing reality.”

“I’m disappointed and I

think a number of the player

and supporters will be as well.

Canterbury Country has been

around from a long time, so I’m

pretty disappointed, but it’s the

decision,” said Dulieu.

This means Canterbury Country’s

long-standing traditional

games against Otago Country

and Southland Country won’t

played this year.

Canterbury Country will still

have under-16 boys, under-18

boys and under-15 girls rep

teams, which will compete at a

South Island tournament.

In previous years, the annual

Craw Shield match between

Canterbury Country and

Canterbury Metro has been

used as a final trial match for the

Canterbury B side. However, due

to a newly-extended programme

this year, the Canterbury B side

will be selected by the end of the

club season.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

Taha Auto – cash for cars, spare

parts and great service too

Located in Sockburn, Taha Auto in

Christchurch is part of the Taha Auto group

which was established 12 years ago and has

branches in Wellington and Auckland as

well as a sister company in Sydney.

Split into divisions to met the needs of

both trade and individual customers, Taha

Auto will both pay cash-for-cars and supply

a huge variety of parts.

The Cash-for-Cars division has four

trucks on the road six days a week collecting

vehicles from right across the Canterbury

region. Wherever you are, if your car, truck

or ute is no longer driveable, the Taha

Auto team can not only collect it free of

charge, but give you a great scrap price, too.

Whether your vehicle has simply failed its

warrant or has been involved in a crash,

they will take it off your hands.

Working alongside the Cash for Cars

division, the Scrap division then takes the

vehicle apart, separating them into those

stripped and sold for scrap, those that are

dismantled for export and those selected to

keep for their local parts sales market.

Running alongside the other divisions,

the Auto Parts sales division has four staff

with over 60 years combined experience.

There is a huge range of spares for most

makes and models of cars, utes and vans,

specialising in Suzuki Swifts, Nissan Tiida,

Nissan Murano, Misty Outlander and

Triton. As well as recycling used parts, they

also import new after-market parts from

Asia, with containers scheduled to arrive

soon, and they import used parts from

their overseas supplier on a regular basis. In

fact, they send parts all over New Zealand

for the public and automotive trade sectors

daily.

They have a huge range of car lights from

$40, and if you need a used tyre or battery,

their staff can fit it while you wait at no extra

charge. Above all, they pride themselves on

service and supply, and in most cases, they

can match or better any deal on parts in

stock.

Find them at 115A Main South Road,

Sockburn.

NEW BRIGHTON and Lincoln

University’s replay of last year’s grandfinal

during the opening round of the

premier metro rugby competition will

have extra significance for Logan Bell.

In July, Bell was part of the Lincoln Uni

side which defeated New Brighton 27-6

to win their fourth straight metro title

at Rugby Park. On Saturday, he is likely

to start at second-five for New Brighton

when they look to reverse the result. The

two teams will also play for the DCL

Shield, which Lincoln Uni currently

holds.

“That’s an absolute stitch-up getting

them first game,” said Bell. “It will be a little

weird running out against the boys.”

The change of scenery won’t be completely

unfamiliar for Bell who joins a

number of his former Shirley Boys’ High

teammates at New Brighton. The decision

to join his new club was only made in

January. Since then, he’s been working off

Christmas and New Year celebrations.

“I let myself go a bit,” said Bell.

“I put on 9kg, but I’ve managed to strip

WARRIORS PLAYERS are set to meet

emergency service personnel ahead of

their NRL clash with the Manly Sea

Eagles on Saturday.

The players will meet with police

in Christchurch today and St John

staff tomorrow as part of an extensive

community engagement programme

being undertaken by the team.

Warriors community relations

manager Petrece Kesha said the

club always planned to arrive in

Christchurch ahead of the game and

spend time in the community.

“But after the horrific attacks, we

think getting down there and doing

whatever we can to help has never been

more important,” said Kesha.

An advance party from the Warriors,

including club legends Jerry Seuseu and

Ben Henry, were set to arrive in the city

to refresh myself and the change of

environment has really helped with that.”

Bell could be part of a new New

Brighton midfield combo with Robbie

Mulvena returning from Scotland to play

for the club.

“(Bell’s) been putting a lot of work in

over the last couple of months. We’re

looking for a big season out of Logan,”

said New Brighton coach Scott Pawson.

The team also welcomes back talented

half-back Reuben Spicer who missed last

season with a knee injury.

The Warriors also plan to visit local

schools. Given the importance of the

game, the NRL has confirmed its chief

Christchurch for the match.

The Sea Eagles also plan to run several

community initiatives of their own in

Christchurch. Former Manly player

Joel Thompson will talk to the Bros 4

The best kept secrets

to selling your home

Selling Secret #1: The first impression is the

only impression

No matter how good the interior of your home looks,

buyers have already judged your home before they walk

through the door. You never have a second chance to make

a first impression. It’s important to make people feel warm,

welcome and safe as they approach the house. Spruce up

your home’s exterior with inexpensive shrubs and brightly

colored flowers. Entry ways are also important. You use it as a

utility space for your coat and keys. But, when you’re selling,

make it welcoming by putting in a small bench or a vase of

fresh-cut flowers.

Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to show

Your house needs to be “show-ready” at all times – you never

know when your buyer is going to walk through the door. You

have to be available whenever they want to come see the place

and it has to be in tip-top shape. Don’t leave dishes in the sink,

keep the dishwasher cleaned out, the bathrooms sparkling and

make sure there are no dust bunnies in the corners. It’s a little

inconvenient, but it will get your house sold.

Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes first

You’re not actually selling your house, you’re selling

your kitchen – that’s how important it is. The benefits of

remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part of it is

that you’ll probably get 85% of your money back. It may be

a few thousand dollars to replace countertops where a buyer

may knock $10,000 off the asking price if your kitchen looks

dated. The fastest, most inexpensive kitchen updates include

painting and new cabinet hardware. Use a neutral-color paint

so you can present buyers with a blank canvas where they can

start envisioning their own style. If you have a little money

to spend, buy one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why one?

Because when people see one high-end appliance they think

all the rest are expensive too and it updates the kitchen.

Selling Secret #4: Take the home out of your house

One of the most important things to do when selling your

house is to de-personalize it. The more personal stuff in your

house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves living

there. Get rid of a third of your stuff – put it in storage. This

includes family photos, memorabilia collections and personal

keepsakes. Staging simply means arranging your furniture to

best showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space.

commission is half most firms.

Selling Secret #5: Don’t over-upgrade

Quick fixes before selling always pay off. Mammoth

makeovers, not so much. You probably won’t get your money

back if you do a huge improvement project before you put

your house on the market. Instead, do updates that will pay

off and get you top dollar. Get a new fresh coat of paint on

the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy some inexpensive

new ones. Replace door handles, cabinet hardware, make

sure closet doors are on track, fix leaky faucets and clean the

grout.

Selling Secret #6: Conceal the critters

You might think a cuddly dog would warm the hearts of

potential buyers, but you’d be wrong. Not everybody is a dogor

cat-lover. Buyers don’t want to walk in your home and

see a bowl full of dog food, smell the kitty litter box or have

tufts of pet hair stuck to their clothes. It will give buyers the

impression that your house is not clean. If you’re planning an

open home don’t leave your pets around.

Selling Secret #7: Light it up

Maximize the light in your home. After location, good light

is the one thing that every buyer cites that they want in a

home. Take down the drapes, clean the windows, change the

lampshades, increase the wattage of your light bulbs and cut

the bushes outside to let in sunshine. Do what you have to

do make your house bright and cheery – it will make it more

sellable.

Selling Secret #8: Half-empty closets

Storage is something every buyer is looking for and can never

have enough of. Take half the stuff out of your closets then

neatly organize what’s left in there. Buyers will snoop, so be

sure to keep all your closets and cabinets clean and tidy.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

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

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A NEW 60km/h sp ed limit and

double ye low lines wi l be in

place on Dyers Pa s Rd by early

May.

The sp ed limit change was

a proved by the city counci last

w ek.

A decision to paint double yellow

lines on the stretch betw en

Summit Rd and the Sign of the

Takahe was earlier made by the

Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board.

Bu the Banks Peninsula Community

Board decided against

ye low lines on the Summit Rd-

Governors Bay section due to the

road’s na rowne s and general

condition.

The changes are designed to try

and reduce the crash rate.

Insta lation of the double

ye low lines, the new sp ed limit

signs and raised centre line pavement

markers wi l begin in mid

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en

September-May along with a Thai

f od truck.

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

have taken a step back in time,

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-

has b en given the gr en ligh to

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

advocating” for the Templeton
