RUSSIAN WITH

FIREARMS SENT

EMAIL TO SCHOOL

AK47 and ammo found in house

• By Sophie Cornish

AN EMAIL written by a former

Russian solider who died of

a suspected suicide during a

police stand-off was sent to a

school, it can be revealed.

When police raided 54-yearold

Troy Dubrovskiy’s St

Martins home, they found an

AK47 assault rifle and several

hundred rounds of ammunition

The Star can now also reveal.

Police chiefs yesterday did not

return calls to The Star about

the new detail.

The school – which The Star

has decided not to identify –

referred all questions about the

matter to police.

Dubrovskiy (inset) was found

in his vehicle in Richmond

in the early hours of March

27 with critical stab injuries,

several hours after police

raided his home and two other

properties he was associated

with.

His death is being treated as a

suspected suicide.

Last week, Canterbury

District Commander

Superintendent John Price

said Dubrovskiy supported

the actions of the gunman

who has been charged with

the March 15 terrorist attacks

on the Al Noor and Linwood

mosques

• By Barry Clarke

POLICE FEARED up to nine

terrorists could have been on

the loose in Christchurch on the

day of the mosque shootings.

The Star has learned when

the alleged gunman was

apprehended by armed police

in Brougham St on March 15,

he allegedly said he was one of

nine.

The alleged gunman was

dragged from his car, which

contained an explosive device,

handcuffed and held on the

footpath.

The city was already in a state

of panic and emergency services

were swamped with calls about

the initial shooting at the Al

Noor mosque in Deans Ave and

then at the Linwood mosque.

Much of the information

coming into the police and

ambulance was conflicting,

making the situation confusing.

With two attacks already

having occurred within a

short time frame, the alleged

comments about more terrorists

at large heightened an already

chaotic situation.

WITHOUT THE city’s cycle

lanes, you wouldn’t catch Gabby

Morgan on her bike.

The 23-year-old Ara Institute

of Canterbury student said

she feels a lot safer using

the route from her house in

Merivale to get into the central

city.

“Now the bike paths are there,

I do bike more. Without the cycle

lanes, I probably wouldn’t bike,”

she said.

“Especially on the big main

roads when trucks go past, I

feel a lot safer in the cycle

lane. It’s a subconscious thing

for me.”

Gabby said the cycleways also

cut down the time it took her to

get to class because she didn’t

have to find a park.

The growing number of women

cycling in Christchurch is an

indicator the city is becoming

more bike-friendly.

The latest count of cyclists in

Christchurch shows that women

now account for 38 per cent of

cycle trips – up from 32 per cent

a year ago.

City council transport

planning and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis said it is a positive

trend.

“Women tend to be naturally

more risk averse than men and

international experience shows

that they are unlikely to cycle if

they consider a city has a hostile

street environment,” she said.

“That’s why in places like

London and New York you see

far more male cyclists than

female cyclists.”

The latest cycle count was

conducted manually at six spots

around the central city and on

Ilam Rd, by the Canterbury

University.

The count, which was done

on a weekday between 7 and

9am, showed that in the past 12

months the number of people

riding bikes has increased by 34

per cent – up from 1397 a year

ago to 1869.

•In the first three

“Over the past few years the

people to travel safely by bike and

we are starting to see the benefits

of that,’’ Ms Ellis said.

“More people are seeing

that going by bike is a viable

had abated.

Police chiefs would not

Superintendent Price said

last week Dubrovskiy was

a “significant threat to the

community.”

Nazi uniforms, helmets and

clothing along with World

War 2 memorabilia and other

extremist content was found at

Dubrovskiy’s home.

Superintendent Price said

there has been no connection

and the gunman charged with

appeared in the Hamilton

district court on Tuesday after

he had been talking to fellow

students about how easy it would

be for a mass killing to take place

He was in possession of a

sketch of the layout of the school

and his alleged plan involved

activating a fire alarm, prompting

students and staff to evacuate

and congregate on the school

fields, where they would be an

easy target for the shooter.

The teenager appeared on a

charge of possession of objectionable

material, namely the

camera footage of the terror

Police were called to the boys’

high school by the principal on

Monday, after he was found in

possession of a USB stick, with

the footage on it.

Alleged gunman’s

trial likely to be

in Christchurch

• By Sophie Cornish

THE AUSTRALIAN charged

with the terror attacks will almost

certainly face any potential

High Court trial in

Christchurch.

That is the view of

prominent defence

lawyer Nigel Hampton

QC, who said he would

be surprised if the trial

is held anywhere other

than Christchurch.

In the past there has

been precedent for trials

to be taken away from

the location where the

crime occurred, to ensure a fair

trial took place.

There are no exceptional

matters of publicity that would

indicate that it should not be

held in one particular centre over

another . . . because the publicity,

has been the same throughout,”

said Mr Hampton.

There is no reason to think

that a jury pooled from Christchurch

could not be as objective as

a jury draw from any other centre

of New Zealand.”

“I can’t say it won’t happen at

all, it is always a possibility and

I can’t speak for the individual

judge and how she or he weighs

the factors.”

Mr Hampton said

underlying any criminal

trial is a starting

theory or thesis that

trials are properly held

in the centre in which

the alleged crime was

committed.

The jury, traditionally

and historically

have always been

drawn from the

local community, the

people that were residents of the

area.”

The 28-year-old accused gunman

is being held in Auckland

Prison’s maximum security unit,

and has appeared by video link

in court in Christchurch. He is

currently undergoing psychiatric

assessments and will appear back

in court on June 14. He has not

yet entered a plea.

He has been charged with 50

counts of murder and 39 counts

of attempted murder.

THE PROCESS of removing

the flowers, messages and other

tributes left outside the Rolleston

Ave entrance to the Botanic

Gardens started yesterday.

Over the past three-and-a-half

weeks, thousands of people have

laid flowers, toys, cards, and

other tributes along Rolleston

Ave as a way of expressing their

sorrow and support for all those

affected by the March 15 mosque

shootings.

“It has been heart-warming

to see the contributions to the

wall growing daily but we have

reached a point where we need to

start removing some of the older

flowers and tributes,” Botanic

Gardens director Wolfgang Bopp

said.

“People are still welcome to

place flowers along the Rolleston

Ave frontage of the Botanic

Gardens but, with the agreement

of the Muslim community,

city council staff and a team of

volunteers will begin the job

of moving some of the older

tributes.”

They will be taken to a sorting

room at the Arts Centre where a

team of Canterbury University

students and other volunteers

will separate the various items,

with the aim of making a digital

record of the tributes.

Any messages or tributes that

are addressed to a specific person

will be offered to the respective

family.

The remaining messages and

tributes will be placed into longterm

storage for possible use by

the community at a later stage.

Toys that are still in good condition

Front counters at police stations

in Christchurch reopened

yesterday, after being closed

in the wake of the March

15 terror attack. Staff who

typically worked at the counters

were needed elsewhere in

the response and ongoing

investigation into the attack.

Christchurch Central,

More detectives for

Operation Deans

More than 30 detectives and

investigators are working

on the investigation into the

March 15 terror attack, titled

Operation Deans, which is

being overseen by District

Commander Superintendent

John Price. The team is being

supported by international

experts and includes a detective

superintendent, detective

inspectors forensic staff and

scientists from the Institute

of Environmental Science

and Research. There is about

910 years of police experience

within the team.

Explosives found in

Avon River

Police have not confirmed

whether six train detonators

found in the Avon River, in

Avondale, are linked to an

earlier theft at an Ashburton

railway yard on March 14.

A police spokeswoman said

the detonators were located

during routine river work last

Thursday morning. She was

not able to confirm whether

the theft was being looked at in

relation to the March 15 terror

attack The detonators are used

as a warning that there is an

This follows police requests to

cancel or consolidate Anzac

after the March 15 mosque

attacks. Smaller services are also

planned, led by the RSA.

Hagley Oval lights could be fast tracked

The Canterbury Cricket Trust

requirements for major fixtures

at Hagley Oval,” trust chairman

Lee Robinson said.

However, the move has been

labelled “planning by stealth” by

Hands off Hagley chairman and

Hagley Park Reference Group

member Martin Meehan.

He said it was “surprising” neither

group he is part of was aware

of a bid for potential changes to

the oval and he was “beyond”

disappointed.

But Mr Robinson and Regenerate

Christchurch said as work is

in the early stages of discussion,

it is yet to engage with the Hagley

Park Reference Group.

He said a meeting would be arranged

in the near future.

Mr Robinson said the current

resource consent only allows for

removable lighting, which is too

expensive and time consuming

to use.

Lights are necessary for the

ground hosting international

day-night fixtures and broadcast.

There are also constraints on

the number of major fixtures,

spectator numbers, traffic and

parking requirements, he said.

“Hagley Oval cannot host

large international events as it

currently stands and is not fit for

purpose for those events it does

host.”

The trust wants to address

issues through changing the District

Plan using section 71 of the

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Act 2016.

Mr Robinson said it would be

the quickest way to make any

changes before bidding for world

cup matches begins later this year

– taking six months rather than

up to two years.

However, Mr Meehan said if

the trust wanted to make changes

to the District Plan, it should go

through the standard process.

The only reason it is fast

tracked is because it would be

knocked back if it went through

the slow track,” he said.

“If it went through the slow

track and was approved, you’d

have to accept it.”

Regenerate Christchurch chief

executive Ivan Iafeta said the

work was still at a “very early”

stage of the process.

“Regenerate Christchurch is

helping the trust identify and

address some challenges that

potentially restrict Hagley Oval’s

ability to host high-profile, international

fixtures on a regular

basis,” he said.

The changes are supported by

events, tourism and economic

agency ChristchurchNZ.

General manager of destination

and attraction Loren Heaphy said

an upgraded lighting solution for

Hagley Oval enhance Christchurch’s

ability to host both local

and international fixtures

“Particularly with the continued

demand for day/night

matches, and associated broadcast

requirements, in all formats

of cricket,” she said.

here would help showcase

Eight cinemas

planned for

Wigram Skies

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

AN EIGHT-CINEMA complex

could open at Wigram Skies.

Canterbury Property

Investments Ltd has made a

resource consent application

to open a multi-cinema at The

Landing.

The proposed complex would

have a total of eight cinemas

– each with 50 seats, a lounge,

retail/food and beverage counter.

Waiting areas, meeting rooms,

bathroom facilities and a total of 41

car parks will be accommodated in

the site area, along with

a new access point to Corsair Drive.

A city council spokesman said

the resource consent is currently

on hold and awaiting further

information.

The vacant site at The Runway

is 3141m2 and the proposal comprises

an architecturally-designed

building of 1405m2 in gross floor

area.

A transportation assessment

said the traffic generated by the

development can be accommodated

on the adjacent network

without capacity or efficiency

The idea of a new cinema

complex has received positive

feedback from the community.

Man on a Crusaders crusade

A petition started

to support keeping

the Crusaders’ name

has reached almost

29,000 signatures. Julia

Evans finds out who

the man behind the

movement is

SHANE CANNONS is

passionate about two things.

First and foremost his family.

Then rugby – particularly the

Crusaders.

The Burwood father-of-five has

been a fan since the franchise began

in 1996 and cannot stomach

the thought his favourite team

could change their name.

New Zealand Rugby chief executive

Steve Tew said last week

the current imagery of knights

on horseback is “no longer

tenable” because of links to the

religious crusades and will be

reviewed.

It is considering two options –

to keep the name and replace the

imagery of knights, horses and

swords, or an entire rebrand.

So Mr Cannons decided to

start a petition to lobby support

for keeping the name.

“I set it up and forgot about

it. Then my mate rang me up

and said it has got over 10,000

signatures.”

He didn’t believe him at first,

but late yesterday there were

news online at www.star.kiwi

28,900 signatures and counting.

“I was p***ed off that it was a

knee-jerk reaction,” he said.

“I don’t understand the association

between the Crusaders

and what he did. Has Canterbury

not gone through enough?”

with hope in the aftermath of the

he said.

But he said he did not expect

the petition to attract so much

attention.

“I’m just a simple mechanic

that loves his rugby and is p***ed

off the terrorist is affecting the

region in another way.”

Mr Cannons isn’t worried about

any backlash from his stance.

They’re entitled to their

opinion and I’m entitled to mine.

So I put mine into a petition and

people seem to agree with me,”

he said.

“Everything has its pros and

cons, but it’s unfortunate that

the Crusaders have been dragged

into this.”

The 40-year-old has been

involved in rugby in one way or

other for most of his life.

“My wife Amanda says she’s a

rugby widow this time of year.”

As a child he had a brief onfield

career.

“I can’t remember if it was

union or league, but I did play

when I was a little kid and I got

smashed by someone three times

my size. I think that put me off.”

From then on he was supported

from the sideline and

coached his three sons’ junior

teams for Shirley Rugby Football

Club and also for Christchurch

Boys’ High School.

“It’s my first year of not coaching.

I coached a Shirley junior

team for 11 years. But last weekend

I went to the first game and I

got the itch again.”

He took a backseat on

coaching to focus on running his

business, Powerstop Brakes.

Fuel prices close in on record high

• By Julia Evans

PETROL PRICES are rising

in Christchurch, as they head

towards last year’s record high of

almost $2.50 a litre.

On Monday and Tuesday,

Christchurch petrol stations like

Z Energy and BP were charging

up to $2.26 a litre for unleaded

91, a jump from

Sunday’s $2.23.

Yesterday, it was

$2.27 a litre.

Diesel also increased

from $1.67

to $1.70 a litre.

PetrolWatch spokesman Mark

Stockdale said prices are rising

around the country.

“What the AA has observed is

international commodity prices

have been increasing over the last

few weeks or so.”

But he was unable to say

whether petrol would reach last

year’s record prices.

“It’s impossible to predict

what will happen. There are

various international factors that

influence the price at the pump

and the exchange rate is not

helping,” Mr Stockdale said.

“We shouldn’t expect prices

to get down to $1.50 like some

people might remember. Those

days are gone.”

A Z Energy spokesperson said

it buys crude oil, refined petrol

and diesel on the international

market.

“Recently, the price of oil on

the international market has

risen, resulting in an increase in

the price at the pump.”

A BP spokesperson said

the recent price changes are a

result of factors that are out of

its control, including increases

in the cost of product and

weakening of the New Zealand

dollar.

“We are really conscious

that fuel can be a reasonable

proportion of a household

budget, and we review BP

Connect prices every day so

our prices are as competitive as

possible.”

The rising cost of petrol comes

as Gull has announced it will

move into the South Island.

Its first site will open in

Maheno, south of Oamaru on

State Highway 1, in July. It will

open others in Christchurch

and greater Canterbury over the

following months.

is good news for motorists

who could expect more price

competition.

However, cheaper stations like

Gull and NPD still have to raise

prices, he said.

“Taxes will ensure that prices

remain relatively high.”

FIX: Consultants are being procured by Christ Church

Cathedral Reinstatement Ltd so it can move into the

concept design phase of the restoration.

CONSULTANTS are being

hired so concept designs for

Christ Church Cathedral’s

long-awaited restoration can

begin.

Christ Church Cathedral

Reinstatement Ltd is currently

“procuring consultants and

preparing for the concept design

phase of the project,” it said in a

report for the greater Christchurch

The committee is made up of

mayors from around Canterbury

and other governing bodies,

including the New Zealand

Transport Agency, Environment

Canterbury and Canterbury

District Health Board.

The concept design will be

used for cost estimation, consenting

and approval to proceed

with the project, the report said.

“A project execution plan

is being developed to set out

amongst other things project

phases, timing, key milestones,

risks and management protocols.”

Storytelling signage to be

installed at the site is also being

developed.

CCRL did not answer questions

from The Star about the

consultants or concept work.

A spokesperson said there was

no more information available

than was provided in the committee

report and an update

would be issued in the coming

weeks.

At the start of the year, the

to support the Gothic-style

138-year-old Anglican cathedral

after it was badly damaged in

the 6.3-magnitude February

removed.

Stonemasons were used to

The restoration is being partly

and an additional $15 million

Government loan which would

not have to be paid back if

Take your taste buds on a

At Tower Junction you can take your tastebuds on a world tour,

with exciting street food on offer during the day and at night.

The latest development and refurbishment at Tower

Junction has seen the introduction of a variety of new

eateries which serve up food from all corners of the

globe.

Here you can find delicious offerings from Mexico at

Zambero, Indian at Touch the Taste of India, Chinese

at Hao Eatery and Japanese sushi and donburi at

Su Ra. These establishments join with Anna’s Café

Speight’s Ale House and Esquires Café which have

been in residence at Tower Junction for many years.

This diversity of cuisine means everyone is sure

to find something they like, as well as the simple

convenience of ample parking and a choice to either

eat in or take away.

Hao means “epic” in Mandarin, which perfectly

describes the offerings at Hao Eatery. The menu

includes the fresh flavours of Asian market food such

as steam-fried buns, spicy chicken salad and Hao’s

fried chicken, as well as modern versions of well-loved

classics including noodle soups, kung pao chicken and

mapo tofu.

Touch the Taste of India is winning glowing Google

and Trip Advisor reviews with locals and visitors

noting the authenticity of the cuisine and friendly

atmosphere. Touch offers a range of favourites from

Rogan Josh to korma and biryani dishes with plenty

of vegetarian and vegan options. But it specialises in

Southern Indian cuisine, even offering a Southern

Indian breakfast at the weekend.

If it’s a taste of Mexico you are after, Zambrero is

your ideal destination. With burritos, chikitos, tacos,

bowls and nachos all made to order you will get to

taste the freshness and awesome flavours of Latin

America. Think guacamole, salsas, crispy lettuce all

combined with the zesty sprinkle of lime with tasty

meat and vegetarian options.

Su Ra is a favourite for those who love sushi and

“I think it will be really nice in

Car dealer

faces the

court again

• By Sophie Cornish

CONTROVERSIAL car dealer

Nigel Thompson is back in court,

this time over criminal charges in

relation to a car yard he worked

for.

The charges relate to his time

as general manager of the now

defunct Gateway Motor Company

in Aranui.

District court records show the

charges include by deception and

without claim of right, obtained

control over a pecuniary advantage

namely $15,000 and another

of the same charge for $14,000.

He is scheduled to appear in

court today.

Gateway Motors was formed in

2017 by Celebration Centre. The

centre, which is church-based,

said at the time, part of the profits

from vehicle sales would go back

into the community.

Thompson told The Star he

would defend the charges. He

could not comment further but

he said he was involved in an employment

HOMECOMING: Father and daughter enjoying time together after three

days apart.

Daddy’s home

WELL, I didn’t manage

that dreamed of sleep-in.

But after three nights

away from Vittoria and

Laura, even being forced

awake before sunrise in my

own bed felt good.

As I said in my last column,

I was away over the

weekend competing in the

dragon boat nationals at

Lake Karapiro (go Waimak)!

It was the longest

I’ve been away from Vittoria.

Although the break from

all-day, everyday parenting

was nice, I missed it like I

never thought I would.

On Friday night I woke

up in the wee hours just

freaking out that I couldn’t

find Vittoria or even hear

her. It took me a while to

chill out and remember

where I was.

Is this something that

will just happen now?

Luckily this is 2019 so I

could use video calling to

see the family each day.

It was really cute seeing

how excited Vittoria got

to see my face. She’d do

this little jiggle, smile and

giggle dance before getting

back to whatever she

was doing, throwing little

smiles my way while Laura

and I talked.

Eventually she would,

however, try and hang up

the call. I guess you can

have too much dad.

I thought she would just

about explode on Sunday

when I got home, but she

was way too engrossed in

the Wiggles when I got in

the door.

After her song finished

she started warming up to

me again and it wasn’t long

until she was back to being

cuddly and excited to be

around me.

I think out of the two

of them, Laura was most

excited to have me home.

The weekend had included

the unholy meeting of

arbitrary toddler routine

changes and the end of

VITTORIA

& Matt

daylight saving. Not to

mention poor weather.

Nothing like being

trapped indoors with a

grumpy toddler who woke

you up multiple times

overnight before deciding

4am was playtime.

My wife is a saint.

On Tuesday bubs and I

reconnected on a daddy/

daughter day with some

friends over from Australia

at the petting zoo Arion

Farm.

Nothing quite like being

chased by ducks and

having a sheep try and eat

your hand, to rekindle the

spark of daddy’s-girl-ness.

AS A self-confessed “crazy dog

lady,” working with them is a

dream come true for Nik Taylor.

The Canterbury University

associate professor admits there

has only been three months in

her 47 years where she hasn’t had

a dog.

And now, she’s exploring how

meaningful the companion

animals can really be.

In her new book, Companion

Animals and Domestic Violence:

Rescuing You, Rescuing Me,

which she co-authored with

Queensland University of

Technology associate professor

Heather Fraser, Dr Taylor

explores the role that dogs and

other animals play in victims’

recovery from domestic abuse.

Dr Taylor interviewed and

drew research from more than

500 domestic violence victims

and pet owners and found that

in some cases, the animals were

“literal lifesavers.”

“Numerous women said they

wouldn’t be here today without

their pets. We talked to one

woman who overdosed and her

dog licked her face the entire

time she was passing out. Once

she had passed out, the dog

created such a racket that the

neighbours came to see what

was happening and called an

ambulance, which saved her life.”

Others said they felt depressed

and couldn’t face getting up

every day, once they left the

violence.

“It was their animals

and their responsibility to

that animal and the love it

showed that helped them

rebuild their self-esteem,

face that depression and help

them get back into a routine.”

Another finding discovered

that when people do leave

the violence, they have to be

separated from their animal,

which leads to more trauma for

both the victim and the animal.

“A lot of them talked about

how they wouldn’t leave the

violence, until they knew petfriendly

services existed,

which would

give

them

the

news online at www.star.kiwi

ability to stay with the animal,”

said Dr Taylor.

Some people didn’t realise how

bad the abuse was, until they

saw it being acted out on their

animal.

They figured they could cope

and when they saw their animal

hurt, they realised they were

putting another life at risk and it

wasn’t fair and so they left,” said

Dr Taylor.

So what’s offered in

Christchurch?

There are four domestic

violence services in

Christchurch which offer safehouse

accommodation, the

Battered Women’s Trust, West

Christchurch Women’s Refuge,

Shakti Ethnic Women’s Support

Group and Te Whare

Hauroa.

Women’s

Pets have role in domestic abuse recovery

CRAZY DOG LADY: Nik Taylor, who has just co-written a book on the importance of pets in

the recovery of domestic violence, with her fox terrier cross Loki.

The Star Thursday April 11 2019

communications manager Susan

Barker said at a national level, the

organisation has a memorandum

of understanding with the SPCA.

They will prioritise the care

of animals that need temporary

accommodation when someone

leaves an abusive relationship;

we also encourage each refuge to

facilitate a relationship with their

local SPCA.”

“We have completed research

in this area and as a result are

working on a new collaborative

project aimed at addressing the

issue,” she said.

A Shakti Christchurch

spokeswoman said its safe house

accommodation is not currently

pet-friendly, as it sometimes

homes newborn babies and

people of different cultures and

nationalities.

However, the organisation

works closely with a local

pet store to allow those who

need safe housing to make

arrangements for their pets,

usually free of charge, during

their stay.

Te Whare Hauroa and the

Battered Women’s Trust did not

respond to questions about their

safe housing.

Toy collection outgrows museum

City council

asked to help

with display

• By Julia Evans

IT STARTED in 1962 with a few

Matchbox cars.

Now Alan Preston’s collection

is made up of more than 60,000

toys from New Zealand and

around the world worth more

than $400,000. It has grown to

the point where his museum, The

Toy Collector, is on the hunt for

bigger premises.

“We’ve outgrown this place.

We’ve got 30,000 toys on display,

which is about half of the full

collection,” he said.

Then we have 10 or so

collectors around town who want

to put toys on display.”

Mr Preston and his wife Ruth

Fisher, a business consultant,

have spent about $500,000 on

the museum, which opened two

years ago. They use money from

Dot Dash Consulting to support

the museum.

“We’ve probably spent too

much money and spent too much

time to pull the pin now, so we

have to go bigger and better,” he

said.

They spoke to the city council

social development, community

COLLECTION: Alan Preston is looking for a bigger place to house the 60,000 toys he has

at his museum.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

and housing committee at its last

meeting to see if there was any

way it could offer support.

“We’re waiting for them to

come through with some options,

but we’ll just keep going,” he said.

Committee chairman and city

councillor Phil Clearwater said

members of the committee would

visit the museum. “Clearly it’s

a museum of interesting toys.

It’s about looking at how we can

understand it . . . then we will

speak with staff about how, as a

council, we can help,” he said.

Having a museum of his own

has always been a dream for Mr

Preston. There’s also a shop out

the front where toys are sold.

But it was the February 22,

2011, earthquake which really

prompted him to get it under

way.

“After the earthquake the

collection in my garage shook

off the walls and into the

liquefaction.”

It was then that he knew he

needed somewhere safe to store

the toys, but also somewhere

where people could see them.

He said he was “spoiled” as a

child with toys, which his father

and uncle brought back from

overseas.

“I like a bit of everything. I’m

an ex-mechanic, so my favourites

have to mostly be die-cast.”

Some rare die-cast car models

are his most valuable items,

worth about $1000 – including a

model Greg Murphy V8.

“But even then, some of the

wee Matchbox toys are worth

over $100 each . . . I think they’re

my favourite. Early Matchbox

reminds me of my

childhood.”

The entire

Matchbox

collection would

be worth between

$15,000 and

$20,000, he said.

Creating a sense

of nostalgia is a

main drive for Mr

Preston.

Phil

Clearwater

Many of the toys can also be

played with. “We have a lot of

retirement villages come through

and some of them make toy

donations. We had a 90-year-old

lady who donated a bassinet,

which her father had made when

she was a girl,” he said.

“She . . . left in tears knowing

that it would be looked after for

years.”

Speaking out

demands courage

Cheap-Cheap

Prices this

Easter

THIS WEEK, the United

Nations Deputy High

Commissioner for Human

Rights, Kate Gilmore,

was here as a guest of

the NZ Human Rights

Commission.

Listening to her

speak of the experience

of responding to and

recovering from the kind of

atrocity that has occurred

here, was inspiring.

She said that life’s

cruellest moments could

give rise to transformation,

making our world a better

place.

The fact that the

Universal Declaration

of Human Rights was

written in 1948 on the

back of the horror of

war evidences what we

can do when we need to.

Kate Gilmore reminded

us of the importance

of speaking out, of not

staying silent in the face

of speech that denigrates

and dehumanises our

neighbours.

She said this demands

courage, and then

reminded us that the word

courage comes from the

word for heart – to speak all

that is in one’s heart – that’s

courage.

A phrase that resonated

with me was ‘anti-social

media’ as opposed to

social media. There is

nothing ‘social’ about

a platform when it is

used to disseminate hate

speech, fake news and the

demonisation of people

on the basis of where they

come from or how they

worship.

We now know where this

can end. Goal 4 of our city’s

Multicultural Strategy says

Otautahi/Christchurch is

a city of cultural vibrancy,

diversity, inclusion and

connection.

I always say at citizenship

ceremonies that everyone

has a migrant story in

their history – whether

the journey to make New

Zealand home was by waka,

by ship or by plane – we all

have a story.

Let’s share our stories

with each other.

OUR PEOPLE – Gary Stead

From growing up on an apple

Black Caps head coach

and former Canterbury

batsman Gary Stead is

about to face his biggest

challenge in the role yet –

the ICC Cricket World Cup

in May. Sophie Cornish

talks to him about life

outside of cricket and the

effect his new role has on

the people closest to him

How did you celebrate when

you found out you’d got the role

as head coach?

I got a phone call from the

chief executive offering me the

job. It had been a reasonably

lengthy process. I rung the wife

and told her I’d been offered it. It

was a pretty low key celebration,

I think we might have had a glass

of wine or something – I can’t

really remember to be honest. But

it was a real thrill, a dream come

true really. It’s always nice to

represent your country, but then

you get a chance to contribute

in a different way – from a

coaching perspective and helping

them learn to get the best out of

themselves is again different to

playing.

It’s still a real thrill and

honour to be asked. We’ve got a

pretty settled team, so keeping

developing good, competitive

competition right throughout

IN CHARGE: Black Caps coach

Gary Stead grew up playing cricket

in the backyard and wanting to

follow in his father’s footsteps as

a Canterbury cricketer.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

the country is going to be really

critical to make sure we stay

at the top of the game. Any

job you come into, it’s just

about developing good, strong

relationships and trust and then,

hopefully, if you do that, your

ability to keep challenging people

and pushing them towards

getting the very best out of them

gets easier and easier.

Are your wife and kids as

cricket-mad as you?

Both of my kids play a little bit,

both of them are at secondary

school now. Libby is 15-yearsold

and she plays at the north

west cricket club and goes to

Christchurch Girls’ High School.

She’s done well with her cricket,

she’s into netball too. My boy

Alex, he’s 13 and in his first year

at secondary school and he’s

into cricket and hockey mainly.

Rachel my wife is definitely

not into cricket, so she’s on the

sideline reading books. She’s

into her netball coaching – she

coaches the Lincoln University

premier team. She’s also a

primary school teacher. It’s very

busy. I try when I can to get

them down to the nets and help

them out when I can. I think the

main thing when they are young,

whoever is coaching them, is to

make sure they have some fun

and are learning something. It

doesn’t have to be me; any coach

can help them, as long as they do

those things.

Tell me about your

upbringing in Christchurch

– were you into sports from a

young age?

I grew up on an apple orchard

down Marshland Rd with my

mum, dad, brother Wayne and

sister Andrea. I was brought

up there right through until

secondary school. That was great,

it was outdoors sort of living and

we were all expected to chip in at

different times. I think it was a

great upbringing to be perfectly

honest.

I went to a small country

school called Ouruhia Model

School. It was very small, only

about 30 kids when I started,

and about 70 when I finished.

Then I went to Shirley Boys’

High School. I played a lot of

sport, I was into everything

really. Cricket and rugby were

my two main ones. Then as I

got into high school, I got into

squash quite a bit. I had a go at

everything really.

OUR PEOPLE 19

orchard to world cricket stage

Going to a small country

school as well, everyone was

into everything and you learnt

to do it all. I started playing

rugby for Belfast, that was the

local club. When I was in fifth

form I came in and played for

Shirley Boys. I played cricket in

town at Riccarton Cricket Club

before high school and then

played for Shirley Boys before

going back to Riccarton after

school finished. There was a

15-month age gap between me

and Wayne, I was the oldest. As

you can imagine things between

us were pretty competitive, we

were real rivals with each other

as well, which was great growing

up. Whatever we were doing,

we were competitive and I think

that’s where I got my competitive

spirit from. He was into the

same sports as me. Andrea

played a little bit of cricket, but

not too much. She was into

trampolining, she represented

New Zealand when she was

young. She went to the world

champs in Japan and did pretty

well.

As a sporty kid, who did you

grow up aspiring to be like?

When I was young, the greats

in the game then were allrounders

like Imran Khan and

Richard Hadlee. I guess playing

in the backyard, you are always

trying to be those people. When I

was younger, I was a leg spinner.

I loved watching Abdul Qadir

bowl from Pakistan – he was

outstanding. Dad bowled leg spin

as well, so I guess just watching

him and trying to work it out

myself, which was how I went

about learning as a youngster.

I was in my early 20s when I

switched to being a batsman.

My bowling didn’t really kick

on. I went well for a while and

then didn’t really kick on too

much after that, so I switched to

batting.

Were you always seeking a

career in sport or did you plan

to do something else?

Dad played cricket for

Canterbury for about 15 years.

Like most kids, you want to do

what your dad did. We turned

down a chance to run the

orchard when we were younger

and didn’t really see that as

being a pathway for us. I was

always into cricket coaching

and playing. I was lucky to go to

England, then I came back and

got a job at Canterbury Cricket.

I spent a lot of time coaching

at Canterbury Cricket. I guess

you must be okay at it when you

keep getting opportunities to

do things and more and more

of them kept coming. I mixed

coaching and a playing career

for quite a while. I was giving

everything I had to playing, but

to be honest, I probably wasn’t

quite good enough to hold down

a spot in the Black Caps at all.

But I had a great cricket career

and don’t regret anything. Then

coaching started to take over

more and more and here I am.

University didn’t really interest

me.

I was lucky that as soon as I

left school, I got a chance to go

to Lords, which is the home of

cricket. I was on a scholarship

there playing for six months,

CHAMPS:

Canterbury

captain

Gary Stead

holding up

the the Shell

Trophy in

2000.

for MCC Young Cricketers. So I

had a fantastic life opportunity

and learning about my cricket at

the same time. I haven’t been to

university on any full-time basis.

I did a few psychology papers

that interested me that would

potentially have some bearing

on my coaching as well. I have

no doubt certainly in cricket, the

psychological game in your head

is certainly critical. I read a lot

too, mainly books where I can

keep learning things.

What are some of your

favourite memories or

highlights as a player?

I had 12 years playing for

Canterbury and I think we won

about 10 titles in that time, which

was pretty special, across fourday

and one-day competitions.

We had a very good team and a

lot of players in the New Zealand

team. Captaining Canterbury

was really special to me and

finding ways to try and win

when you didn’t have those

New Zealand guys there was

challenging at times. Back then,

we had really good facilities and

good competition. They were

really enjoyable times. We played

with a lot of people that became

close friends. When you spend

so much time together and your

summers are together, those

people become close to you and

you form everlasting friendships.

When I started you had the likes

of Stephen Fleming, Nathan

Astle, Chris Harris, Craig

McMilllan, Chris Cairns, Darryl

Murray, Blair Hartland, Stu

Roberts, Michael Owens. There

were some really good players.

Forcing your way into that for a

start was very tough. Once you

are in there and the more you get

in there and do well, you start

building something. We built a

pretty strong legacy through the

1990s.

Steam Extravaganza

The weekend of the 13th and 14th April

promises to demonstrate how steam

worked when steam was king.

Steam Scene can be found on McLean’s

Island Road. The day is a living,

breathing, educational attraction where

steam powered machinery can be

experienced in all its glory. Devoted

enthusiasts show you what these engines

did in the early 1900’s.

The Society has recently celebrated

its 50th Anniversary. It has turned

the Steam Extravaganza into New

Zealand’s premier Steam Gathering

with exhibits ranging from models to 2

steam locomotives. We will be expecting

about 25 traction engines and other

steam driven vehicles to be on display

and operating working displays of saw

milling, sheep shearing, grain threshing,

road making, stone crushing and black

smithing. A blacksmith will be shaping

hot metal with a manner on an Anvil.

A free steam train ride will be

circulating around the perimeter of

Steam Scene with two open-sided

carriages that people can ride on to view

what is going on around you.

The Steam Museum will be operating

its many steam machines from a

wood-fired boiler. This Museum

is now known worldwide as a

must see for steam enthusiasts who

love watching the engines quietly

ticking over. Family fun can be had

looking at the scenery, watching

and listening to the huge Model

Railway in the Museum. The

scenery is based on England in

the 1950’s.

A miniature railway is running all day

with rides costing $2.00. Major working

displays in purposely built covered

areas will be staggered throughout the

weekend making it as easy to see how big

shiny pistons, driving rods and flywheels

are linked together to turn steam into

motive power. You can marvel at the

workers who had to work long hours on

these machines.

Food and drink stalls will be on hand

for refreshments. There is plenty of off

road parking. Gates will open at 9am

with the final demonstrations at approx.

2pm on both days.

There is Eftpos on site. Entry fee is

$15 per adult and children under 15 are

free.

No dogs are permitted.

People of all ages can get up-close to

machines and experience themselves

what it was like to operate such vehicles

in the old days as well as the sounds and

aromas generated by them.

TRIP OF A LIFETIME: The Vocal Collective with United States singer,

arranger and composer, Deke Sharon, and a capella artists from around

the world, during a rehearsal at Carnegie Hall, New York City.

Choir raises $6k for victims

of mosque shooting

• By Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

A CHOIR has used a “once

in a lifetime” opportunity

to perform in the United

States to raise $6000 for

people affected by the

terror attack.

The Vocal Collective,

formerly known as

the Christchurch Pops

Choir, has returned

from a whirlwind trip to

Washington DC and New

York City.

About 40 singers

performed at a wide-range

of venues, including New

York City’s prestigious

Carnegie Hall, last month.

The mosque attack took

place three days before the

choir left for the US.

Executive team

member and performer

Harriet Scott said some

of the members were

apprehensive about having

to leave their friends and

families at the time.

“It was certainly a huge

event in our city and

our country . . . it was a

difficult time but knowing

we had planned this trip

and concert it took on a

new meaning,” she said.

The choir used the 10-

day tour as an opportunity

to perform two benefit

concerts in a bid to raise

money for the victims

and their families. As

part of the tour, the

choir sang at the George

Washington Masonic

National Memorial venue

in Washington DC.

It sang with barbershop

chorus, the Alexandria

Harmonizers, and pop

chorus, The Alexandria

Singers, and donated all

ticket sales from

the concert,

raising $5000.

A further

$1000 was raised

when the choir

performed with

Affinity Female

Voice Choir at

St Johns in the

Village, New York

City.

All funds have

gone to Victim Support’s

official Givealittle page.

“It was really touching

to see how it all played out

over there. The American

people were wonderfully

welcoming and

supportive,” Scott said.

On Saturday, the choir

will hold a special concert,

showcasing the music it

performed overseas, at The

Piano Centre for Music

and the Arts.

The concert, called

New York State of Mind,

was originally scheduled

for March 15 but was

postponed due to the

mosque attack. Artistic

director Matt Everingham

said it was necessary to

postpone the concert – but

the attack was not going

to stop the choir from

singing.

“Music has always

been a source of hope,

peace, healing, love. We

will continue to sing in

the face of hate

and violence

inflicted on our

fellow citizens,”

Everingham said.

“We have done

it before in the

face of natural

disasters, and will

do so again in the

face of this human

Matt disaster.”

Everingham The choir

was formed following

the February 22, 2011,

earthquake to bring joy to

the city.

The concert will

showcase a broad range of

Kiwiana and Americana

music.

•New York State

of Mind will be

performed on

Saturday, 1-3pm. For

JANE LEONARD was left

heartbroken and wondering

what she could do to help after

the mosque shooting.

On March 15, she was driving

to teach a private dance lesson

when she first became aware of

what was unfolding.

She was travelling to the

Impact Dance and Stage School,

just a block away from Deans

Ave on Kilmarnock St, when she

spotted police vehicles circling

the area.

“I checked the news and I was

like, okay, there is a shooting

at the mosque, it must be hatemotivated

. . . it was very intense,

I think it was overwhelming

and that sense of earthquake

mentality and that sense of shock

kind of came back,” Leonard

said.

With news outlets making

regular updates about a shooter

on the loose, Leonard and her

dance pupil made a decision to

get in their cars and leave the

studio.

“It was so heartbreaking

because New Zealand, let alone

Christchurch, is not used to an

act of violence such as this,” she

said.

Deeply saddened, the

following morning Leonard

came up with an idea to band

for the shooting victims and

line-up of vocalists, including

choir and Epic Entertainment.

The cast from Showbiz

Christchurch’s production We

with a St Andrew’s College

band, which has written an

original song in light of the

tragedy.

Leonard said the city has one

of the biggest performing arts

communities in the country and

it felt right to come together to

raise funds.

All ticket sales will go to

the Victim Support’s official

Givealittle page.

“Music knows no boundaries,

no race, no colour of skin

or religion. It is a universal

language that brings humanity

together and in times of crisis

that is exactly what we must

do,” Leonard said.

She said the concert

is not only about

raising funds, it’s

about being united,

standing against hate,

reaching out to others

and continuing the

conversation long

after the headlines

have died down.​

GARDENING

READERS’ PHOTOS

Take the time to

repair your lawn

THE HOT summer months

can take its toll on your

lawn, leaving it a little ravaged

and in desperate need

of care.

Autumn or spring are

typically the best times to

tackle any lawn problems

and give it a little TLC to

bring it back to life. This

is because the soil is warm

and there is adequate rainfall

to aid even germination

of the grass seed.

A uniform green healthy

lawn is something many

people strive for and the

secret comes down to

fertilising regularly and adequately

with lawn fertiliser,

in conjunction with regular

watering.

Established lawns should

be fertilised with good quality

lawn fertiliser at three

to four-weekly intervals,

typically from March until

the end of April.

Fertiliser lowers the PH of

the soil which simply means

the grass grows better than

the weeds! It is absolutely

critical that the lawn is well

watered after each application.

In spring, you can begin

fertilising again from October

until Christmas (avoiding

the hot summer months

when lawns are stressed

due to the heat). If you have

moss in your lawn after

winter, try spreading iron

sulphate on to the area and

watering it in. This is quite

a common practice to treat

moss, and it will also darken

the colour of your lawn.

If you are considering

laying a new lawn, it’s

important to choose the

right grass that will suit

your lawns function and

soil type. In terms of function,

consider; any pets, will

children play on it, will it be

used as a thoroughfare or

just admired?

Your soil type also plays a

major part; is it free draining

or waterlogged? You

may need to improve the

drainage first. You may also

need to add in some gypsum

to help improve this,

and when mowing your

lawn, it’s best to catch your

clippings and remove them.

To create an attractive

durable lawn all year round

it’s a good idea to mix grass

seeds, as some do well in

summer and others do well

in winter. Your local garden

centre can give some advice

on the type of grass that suits

your needs, soil and climate.

In large areas where grass

is either non-existent or

poor quality; top soil should

be spread and new lawn

seed sown.

Sprinkle the seed in an

even pattern walking away

from the starting point so

you are not standing on

the seed. Apply grass seed

to the surface of the soil,

do not cover with top soil

GROWTH:

Mix grass

seeds to cope

with summer

and winter

conditions,

seed should

germinate in

seven to 10 days.

as the seed is very fine and

will not germinate well if

covered.

Grass seed should germinate

(depending on soil

seven to 10 days after

sowing. When the newly

emerged grass has reached

80mm high, the first cut

can be made. With successive

cuts, you can lower the

mowers setting to eventually

reach the grass height

you desire.

If your lawn has smaller

brown spots or is a bit

patchy, repair the infected

areas by removing grass

and soil around the infected

area (at least 15cm beyond

it). Add lawn patching to

the area and lightly water.

Regardless of which task

you embark on, it’s essential

to maintain constant soil

moisture so the new seeds

germinate and the lawn

in general greens up and

becomes healthier overall.

Fruean builds a new life after rugby

• By Gordon Findlater

ROBBIE FRUEAN has gone

from single-handedly tearing

apart defences with his speed

and size to picking up the tools

as he works towards finishing a

building apprenticeship.

The centre played 66 games

and scored 15 tries for the

Crusaders between 2010 and

2015. After being forced into

early retirement from rugby

due to a heart disease, he is now

focused on building and starting

his coaching career as the

Sydenham premier side’s backs

and attack coach.

Fruean, 30, got his first taste

of rugby as an eight-year-old

growing up in Porirua at the

Northern United Rugby Football

Club. He then played secondary

school rugby for Porirua College.

In 2007, he made New

Zealand’s under-19 rugby world

championship team. He led them

to the title, beating South Africa

in the final, and was named IRB

uinder-19 player of the year in

the process.

“It all happened pretty quickly,

really. I went from an unknown

person, who was spotted in

Porirua, to making the New

Zealand under-19 team and

going on to make the Wellington

Lions team that same year,” said

Fruean.

He played 12 games for

Wellington, scoring three tries,

before he was struck by illness.

He underwent open-heart

surgery for rheumatic heart

disease, a potentially lifethreatening

inflammation of the

heart.

“I was getting excited. It

looked like it was about to kick

off, but then I found out I had

some health issues with my heart

and it slowed me right back

down,” said Fruean.

“When doctors talk to you

about what’s going on, they

express all possible scenarios and

one of the main ones I heard was

that I wouldn’t be able to play

rugby anymore.”

After surgery, Fruean made

the move to Christchurch to join

Canterbury and the Crusaders.

One of his claims to fame in

BASKETBALL WILL become

the beneficiary of Super Rugby’s

lack of creativity when the

National Basketball League

begins tonight.

Sky Sport and Prime will

broadcast a live NBL match

every Thursday at 7.30pm until

the season finishes in July.

Finally, sports fans who refuse

to watch trashy, so-called reality

television shows will have a

product to enjoy midweek.

It’s yet another small victory

for the sport which recently

overtook rugby to become New

Zealand’s second most played

sport at secondary school level.

Netball has done well and

his early days with the Crusaders

was plying his trade at club level

with Lincoln University before

they were the dominant force

they are today.

“I was at Lincoln during

the tough time. We built the

foundations,” he said.

“Every Monday, we would have

a feedback meeting about how

our club teams were going. It was

never much fun with Lincoln’s

results back in the day, but I

said ‘don’t worry lads, in four

years time they’re going to be

champions’ and now they’re the

hardest team to beat.”

In 2010 with Canterbury and

2011 with the Crusaders, Fruean

created a formidable midfield

partnership with Sonny Bill

Williams.

“One of the most enjoyable

tried its best to stay relevant by

working around Super Rugby

and operating a Sunday to

Wednesday schedule.

However, the biggest surprise

is that it’s taken this long for

someone to recognise the

Thursday night gap.

Other than the hardy rugby

league fans staying up late for a

9.50pm kick-off or Australian

rules fans doing the same, this

•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

times I had was playing

alongside Sonny Bill Williams.

He was still in that process of

learning the game and I was

doing the same. We were able

to feed off each other as we both

learnt things,” said Fruean.

Fruean was also part of the

2011 Crusaders squad which

were forced to play home

matches in Timaru, Nelson,

Napier and London (where they

beat the Sharks at Twickenham)

due to the damage at Lancaster

Park after the February 22

earthquake. Fruean played a

pivotal role in the side, which

came close to winning the title

before losing to the Reds in the

final at Brisbane.

“We just wanted to help take

people’s minds off it and play as

well as we could and to entertain.

time of year we are deprived of

our favourite activity – watching

sweaty men playing with some

form of ball – on a Thursday

night.

One of my favourite things

about the Mitre 10 Cup season is

the Thursday night games.

However, Super Rugby appears

to be stuck in its ways with

Friday and Saturday night kickoffs,

in spite of a continued drop

It was a big season and was quite

taxing on us. It was unfortunate

we couldn’t go all the way, but

on reflection, it kind of caught

up with us, as much as we didn’t

want to make it an excuse,” he

said.

In 2014, Fruean played one

season for the Chiefs, in which

he scored the side’s first try of

the season against the Crusaders

at Christchurch Stadium. He

then re-joined the Crusaders

in 2015 before a move to Bath

in 2016 saw him link up with

former Crusaders coaches Todd

Blackadder and Tabai Matson.

A year later he moved to

Edinburgh. However, after

just five matches, Fruean lost

his long-running health battle

and was forced into a reluctant

retirement.

“Retirement isn’t easy for

anybody, but the hardest thing

for me was the fact I had to be

forced into retirement. That was

probably the hardest thing I had

to come to grips with . . . my

body felt like I was still capable

of more,” said Fruean.

“I had to slow right down

to where I couldn’t get my

heart-rate above 150 or even

in interest over the past decade.

The two recent 5.15pm kickoffs

for the Crusaders have been

a pleasant break. However, the

thought of a Thursday night or

Sunday afternoon Super Rugby

match has never been toyed

with.

Thankfully there’s never been

a better time to be a basketball

fan in New Zealand and with

more exposure than ever in

recent years, and the addition

of a Tasmania-based team, the

national league could be on track

to return to its glory days of

the 1980s and 1990s, before the

introduction of the New Zealand

Breakers in the Australian NBL.

130[bpm].”

He returned to Christchurch

last year and has since started a

building apprenticeship.

“Building gives me the

ability to stay constantly active

throughout the day and know

that I’m not going to put on too

much weight with all the food I

eat,” he said.

This year Fruean has also

taken his first step into coaching.

He was approached by new

Sydenham coach Sid Taumaiti

about coming on board.

“He [Taumaiti] found out that

I was back in Christchurch and

gave me a call,” said Fruean.

“He proposed the thought of

coaching senior rugby really well

to me . . . I initially thought I was

going to be waiting until I have a

son and start coaching his team,

but he got me along and I’m

really enjoying it.”

Sydenham have started

the metro rugby season with

two wins over Linwood and

Burnside.

The Crusaders take

on the Highlanders at

Christchurch Stadium

tomorrow at 7.35pm.

Finally something to watch on Thursday night

READY: Ian McKee, Brent Rawstron, Brent Tiney and Mads Ostberg make final

preparations on the Rossendale BDA Escort ahead of the Otago Rally. ​

Rich pedigree for

classic rally car

SIDEWAYS: Mads Ostberg powers the Escort in

last year’s Otago Rally.

• By Gordon Findlater

BRENT Rawston’s iconic

1975 MkII BDA Ford

Escort has easily been

driven by more world

champions than any other

car in the country.

This weekend Norwegian

WRC star Mads Ostberg

will power the Rossendale

Wines Escort for the second

consecutive year at the

Otago Rally. Last year he

led the classic field before

suffered a tailshaft failure.

“Had he used the

definition of a road that

was between where the

grader had gone instead

of between fence lines he

would have won the event

by miles,” said Tai Tapu’s

Rawstron.

With the likes of Juha

Kankkunen, Michèle Mouton,

Ari Vatanen, Miki

Biasion, Didier Auriol,

Piero Liatti, Björn Waldegård,

Markko Märtin,

Pasi Hagstrom and Jimmy

McRae taking the wheel of

the Escort over the past 15

years, the combined nine

world driver’s championships

gives it a case for being

driven by more world

rally champions than any

other vehicle on a worldwide

basis.

Since 2004 an international

driver has been

invited to drive the car at

the Otago Classic Rally.

With the star-studded

line-up over the years the

Escort has become a fan

favourite, often carrying

more anticipation than the

leading New Zealand Rally

Championship cars.

“It’s been a fabulous experience,”

said Rawstron.

They love the roads so

it’s got to the stage now

where guys like Didier

Auriol say they’ve been

waiting for their turn to

be invited to come to Rally

Otago . . . Mikko Hirvonen

and Petter Solberg want

to come but due to other

contracts and arrangements

they just can’t get here at

the moment, so we’ve got

people who are queuing up

to come.”

The best drive Rawstron

has seen in the Escort over

the years was by Pasi Hagstrom

when he powered to

victory in 2004.

“He got into the car that

was right-hand-drive at the

time. He had never driven

that side before and hadn’t

driven two-wheel-drive in

a long time . . . he wasn’t

on pace notes and had no

idea where the roads were

going, and he won by six

minutes,” said Rawstron.

The car was the second

RS1800 MkII Escort built

in New Zealand. George

Kuttel owned the car

from 1975 untill 1986.

Howard Boseley become

the new owner and owned

the car till 1990. The car

then came through the

hands of Peter Johnson,

Mike Turfus and Glenn

Buist throughout the 90s

before being purchased

by Rawstron in 1999 –

the same year he drove

it to victory in the Otago

Classic Rally.

Rawstron and the car’s

service team of Brent Tiney

and Ian McKee travelled

to Dunedin yesterday. The

trip adds to an incredibly

busy month for Rawstron

who is preparing for

the wine harvest at his

Rossendale winery in

Tai Tapu. His vineyard

manager is Hayden

Paddon’s former WRC codriver

John Kennard.

“It’s a nightmare time

of the year, but it’s one of

those things you have to

make worth when wine

and rallying are your two

passions,” said Rawstron.

A record-breaking

132 cars will start this

weekend’s two-day Otago

Rally.

Pants down but he still holds onto the ball

• By Gordon Findlater

SHELDON PARK lived up to

its name as the snake pit on

Saturday when Marist Albion

and Belfast clashed in their

senior rugby match.

The highlight for Marist

Albion Beacons wasn’t just their

18-17 win over Belfast’s division

three side to claim the Challenge

Shield, but the discovery hooker

Daniel Barry’s ‘downtrou-ing’

had been snapped on camera

in what could be one of club

rugby’s greatest photos.

“I came flying out of the

line and next thing I knew my

undies were around my ankles .

. . the guy with dreads let me go

and I kept running but tripped

over my shorts. They were right

around my ankles,” said Barry.

The next time I had a run

with the ball I heard someone

from Belfast yell out get his d***

out again.”

Barry’s brother and teammate,

Liam, had the best or arguably

worst seat in the house as the

event unfolded. However,

the discovery that the candid

moment had been caught

on camera didn’t come until

days after the game. Belfast’s

junior committee chairwoman

Kylie Collins – who also takes

photos for the division three

side – claimed the great piece of

timing.

“I actually didn’t realise I had

managed to get it until I was

editing my photos. I was a bit

shocked,” said Collins.

“I’m used to getting a few

photos of bums throughout the

season but that’s certainly the

first d*** pic I’ve taken.”

The Beacons host Otautahi

RFC on Saturday and Barry has

one piece of advice.

“I think I’ll tape my undies

next time.”

He added that anyone who

wants to play for a team which

“just turns up on a Saturday”

should get in touch as they are

still looking for players.

Holden’s big Acadia

– born in the US

A STICKER with the

message “proudly built in

Tennessee” is something

you don’t see often on

new vehicles sold in New

Zealand.

Sure, there have been a

smattering of US-built cars

available for NZ buyers,

but they are few and far

between. However, there’s

a newcomer on the block,

and it represents much of

the way we view US cars,

the seven-seat Acadia is

here and it’s big and bold.

The Acadia is a large

sport utility vehicle that

comes out of the GMC

stable, GMC is an off-shoot

of the giant General Motors

conglomerate that focuses

primarily on trucks and

pick-ups. However, the

Acadia distances itself from

the ute market, it is built

on a sophisticated monocoque

floorpan with fully

independent suspension,

lending itself to a refined

SUV which targets Toyota’s

Highlander as its main

competition.

Under the bonnet sits a

3.6-litre V6 petrol engine

which is rated at 231kW

and 367Nm, these healthy

outputs are realised tall in

the rev band at 6600rpm

and 5000rpm respectively. If

you think these figures look

familiar, it’s pretty much the

same power plant that is

fitted to the range-topping

ZB-series Commodore. The

Acadia also gets the same

transmission, it’s a ninespeed

unit that is characterised

by smooth shifts

and ratios which ease the

load on the engine so that

respectable fuel economy

can be gleaned.

Because of its size, and

weight (2032kg), the

Acadia needs as much

benefit in this department

as it can get. Holden rate it

with a 9.3-litre per 100km

(30mpg) combined cycle

rating. By my reckoning

that’s achievable, the test

car was constantly listing

around 10.8l/100km

(26mpg), taking into

consideration I did a lot

of around the city driving

which is never conducive to

good economy results.

On the highway the

engine lopes over gently at

1500rpm at 100km/h in top

gear, using fuel at an instantaneous

rate of 7.8l/100km

(36mpg).

The Acadia is also a useful

off-the-seal traveller. It

lands in both two-wheeldrive

and four-wheel-drive

variants. The test car was

the top spec – LTZ-V, and

although the driveline

won’t get to places a low

HOLDEN ACADIA: Two or four-wheel-drive options.

ratio set-up will take you,

the mechanicals are perfect

for low grip situations such

as the skifield access road,

tackling the tracks leading

into those high country

lakes, or taking the boat to

the slipway. For the record,

the Acadia has a 2000kg

tow rating and a 203mm

ground clearance figure.

• Price – Holden

Acadia LTZ-V,

$71,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4979mm;

width, 1916mm;

height, 1762mm

• Configuration – V6,

four-wheel-drive,

3649cc, 231kW,

367Nm, nine-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.8sec

• Fuel usage –

9.3l/100km

It also travels with compliant

suspension travel.

Unlike US vehicles of the

past which have been quite

soft in the suspension, the

Acadia’s spring and damper

rates are definitely biased

towards moderate firming,

yet comfort isn’t compromised.

Pushed into a corner

there is just enough steering

feel thanks to beautiful

Continental sport tyres,

and they are big at 235/55

x 20in. There is a lot of

rubber on the road and that

promotes a secure feeling of

attachment.

Power out of a corner is

vivid. The quad-camshaft

engine is a howler, it works

through the rev band freely

but you don’t have to have

it singing to the red line to

get performance, the torque

curve is just broad enough

so that it utilises the midrange.

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

However, if you like to

have it breathing freely for a

highway overtake for example,

it hunts to the red line

willingly, there was never a

point where I thought the

wrong gear was selected,

the way it arranges those

nine ratios is very clever.

On the subject of performance,

the Acadia buyer

can expect a standstill to

100km/h time of around

7.8sec.

As mentioned, the Acadia

lands here in three specification

levels, each with the

option of four-wheel-drive.

The entry-level model lands

at $49,990, while the test

car with its high grade trim

and 4WD sits at $71,990.

For that money it is comprehensively

equipped –

and you’d expect nothing

less. It is very American in

the way it is trimmed and it

does get all the latest safety

technology that comes out

of the General Motors’

stable.

The Acadia makes no

pretence that it is genuinely

American, its styling is designed

to capture attention,

and the luxury feel inside

takes me back to the best

vehicles that have come

out of the States in terms

of build quality and comfort.

However, the Acadia

also gets the benefit of the

down under input. Prior

to its release it was tested

vigorously across the Tasman

for our market. That

development shows, it is an

involving, spirited car that

feels very good to be in.

The Acadia won’t be for

everyone, but for those who

want the benefit of huge

interior space and strong

engine performance, it’s

there in a part of market

where buyers don’t have

comprehensive choice.

LREA 2008. The agent with 50+ years experience whose

commission is half most firms.

If you’ve been to an open home recently, or

been browsing the ‘for sale’ adverts, you might

have noticed that some sellers put together

information packs for potential buyers. These

sellers will know that researching a property

takes time and money, and they don’t want

this to be a barrier to a successful sale. They

believe that providing information like a LIM

(a Land Information Memorandum from the

local council) and a building inspection report

can help busy people get an offer on the table.

This is great in theory, but you need to tread

carefully all the same.

If, for example, a real estate agent or seller

gives you a LIM for the property, check

carefully when it was prepared. A LIM

is a summary of all the current property

information held by the different departments

at a council at the time. It contains details

of council consents for any work done, how

much the rates are and information on any

geographic hazards that might have an impact

on the property, such as subsidence. Bear in

mind that this information can be reasonably

general. If the LIM is dated a couple of weeks

ago, it’s safe to assume it’s reasonably up to

date. If it’s dated a year ago, it’s a good idea

to make further enquiries. Getting a LIM

costs money in most areas (prices vary from

council to council). You can also ask to see the

property file held by the council, which holds

other information about a property, like a site

map and original house plans.

Building reports are a bit trickier. Using

a building report provided by the seller (or

the real estate agent working for them) may

seem like an easy option in the short term.

However, if you buy the property and then

find problems with it that cost a significant

amount to fix, you’re not protected by the

building report because the inspector’s

contract is with the seller, not you. The

Real Estate Authority (REA) recommends

Can I trust a seller’s building report?

using an accredited property inspector who

complies with the New Zealand building

inspection standard 4306:2005. Their written

report will identify any current defects as

well as highlight any urgent and long-term

maintenance required. Look for someone

who has a good level of indemnity insurance,

as this will protect you if you buy the property

and then find you need to fix something that

wasn’t in the report. Building inspections do

come at a cost, but we think it’s worth it to

be sure that you’re fully aware of what you’re

signing up for.

If you end up with a report with a lot of

information about the property it doesn’t

mean you should walk away. Instead, see it

as giving you the opportunity to know what

you’re buying. Doing this before you make

an offer means you are fully aware of what

the property may need to have done to it and

your offer figure can reflect that. However,

if you don’t feel comfortable paying for a

building report before you make an offer, you

can make a property inspection a condition

of your offer. Like most things in life, buying a

property will go more smoothly if you put the

work in. If a short cut seems too good to be

true, it usually is.

ABRAHAM, Cheryle

(Adele). Gary, Jolene and

family wish to thank those

families attending Adele’s

farewell, travelling from

Palmerston North and

Auckland, also those many

honoring Adele at her

farewell service. Also for

their cards and expressions

of love and support

during Adele’s illness and

following her demise. Our

gratitude to Whakatane

Hospice for their

dedication during Adele’s

illness and to Golden Pond

with needed respite cares.

Most especially we wish to

acknowledge the fantastic

support given by Riverslea

Medical Centre staff and

medic often going that

extra mile for Adele.

Adele: - You and I walked

side by side for 38 years,

holding hands, looking up

and laughing. I could not

have it better! There is

an echoing silence in our

house, but your departure

was as you wished; at

home in the company of

your minister to witness

your last breath as you

grasped you crucifix. It is

God’s will and ours that

you rest in peace knowing

you were much loved.

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
