Outrage

over

proposed

movie

on terror

attack

• By Sophie Cornish

ANY ATTEMPT to film a

movie at a mosque involved in

a deadly terror attack will be

met with outrage, a spokesman

for the Muslim community

says.

Hollywood newspaper

Variety reported yesterday

that Egyptian director Moez

Masoud is planning to make a

movie about the March 15 terror

attack where 51 people were

killed when a gunman opened

fire at two mosques.

Muslim Association of

Canterbury spokesman Tony

Green said yesterday the

idea was “far too early” to be

considered.

“Any ideas of opening up Al

Noor Mosque and making it

a film set would be met with

outrage from the community,”

he said.

Mr Green felt the organisation

and others in the Muslim

community had been kept in

the dark about the film, which

had appeared to be in planning

for some time.

“I got an email on Sunday to

say someone from Hollywood

was coming.”

Film crews arrived in the

city on Monday to meet

with officials, victims of the

shootings and their families.

Now, the 20-year-old of

“New York is the hub of

there is just the best of both

She is looking forward to

“My main goal is to perform

professionally in whatever way

that might be. I’m using this

me,” Doherty said.

She started acting as a hobby

when she was 11-years-old

and started to pursue it more

seriously throughout her years at

Burnside High School.

“As I went through high

school I was doing a lot of music.

Eventually, my love for music

turned into a love for musical

theatre,” she said.

Her most challenging

performances were in Les

Misérables last year and Spring

Awakening in 2017, which

inspired her to work harder and

develop as an actor.

“Those two performances were

the most memorable moments

of what made me want to keep

going with this,” she said.

Doherty has been saving

Jake’s cycle marathon for cancer research

• By Sophie Cornish

IF JAKE Bailey was given his

cancer diagnosis 25 years ago, he

believes he would have been left

to die.

But because of research, the

21-year-old was able to beat the

fastest growing cancer known to

man, Burkitt’s Non-Hodgkins

Lymphoma, and survived long

past his two-week prognosis.

Now only four years later, the

former Christchurch resident

who lives on the Gold Coast,

cycled almost 1300km from

Sydney to Geelong in hope of

giving others the same chance of

survival.

The former Christchurch Boys’

High School head boy made

international headlines in 2015

when he revealed his diagnosis

during an end of year speech.

Since beating his cancer

through chemotherapy and

announcing his remission in

January 2016, Mr Bailey has been

passionate about finding a cure

and says cancer research is the

reason he is alive today.

“Twenty-five years ago, the

type of cancer which I faced in

2015 was not treatable. That is to

say, if I had of been diagnosed in

1994, I would have been left to

die. There’s nothing the doctors

could have done for me. But

through the power of research

alone, I am still alive today,” he

said.

On Saturday, Mr Bailey and

172 other riders completed their

nine days of cycling for Tour de

Cure.

Mr Bailey is an ambassador

for the Australian charity, which

raises money to fund cancer

research, support and prevention

programmes.

The trip he says, was the

equivalent distance from Auckland

to Wellington and back

again – with enough hills to have

climbed Mt Everest one and half

times over.

In total there were 232 riders

who took part in the event, 173

completed the full nine days with

30 others riding in stages and 29

as support crew.

SAMANTHA

TAYLOR.

There was an average of seven

hours of pedalling per day.

“We would start getting up

at 5am and roll out at about

6-6.30am. Then we would ride

until sunset most days and have

stops along the way for food and

water.”

Mr Bailey admitted the event

was not as demanding physically

as he expected but was “far more

challenging” than he expected,

mentally.

“We rode through some of the

most inhospitable parts of Australia,

sometimes in temperatures

of -7 deg C. We rode through

40mm of rain at one point . . . it

was pretty challenging conditions,

particularly after not getting

a huge amount of sleep every

night . . . I remember waking up

on a couple mornings dreading

having to get back on the bike,”

he said.

What made it easier was his

‘why.’

“We rode in groups and the

riders were shifted around day by

day . . . so you would ride alongside

different people and the first

question was always about the

‘why’. . . everyone has a cancer

story.”

“It makes it a lot easier when

you think about why you are doing

it and your reason for being

there . . . I don’t think I could

have pushed myself to those limits

and got up an rode through

those conditions and trained for

months for myself, I had to do it

for someone else.”

Mr Bailey said so far the event

has raised about $3 million. The

charity has raised $10 million

since the beginning of this year

through other events.

He hopes to complete the event

again next year.

Terror film plan met with outrage

•From page 1

Mr Green said he met with

Rick Castaneda, who co-wrote

the script with Mr Masoud, on

Tuesday and had a “brief chat”

with him, but he only provided

“vague ideas.”

Mr Green

made a

post on the

Muslim

Association

of Canterbury

Facebook

page

Moez Masoud

yesterday

stressing

there had

been no discussion with

the group about the proposed

film.

“We cannot stop such projects

going ahead if filmmakers

choose to embark on them

but the Muslim Association of

Canterbury regards the dignity

and privacy of our community

and the dignity of those whose

lives were taken as paramount

. . . we stress again that we have

not had any proposal such as

this presented to us nor have we

agreed to it.”

Nine days after the attack,

Mr Masoud stated his intention

to make the film, which has a

tentative title of Hello Brother

COMMUNITY: Muslim Association of Canterbury spokesman Tony Green said the film idea

was “far too early” to be considered.

– which were the words spoken

to the accused gunman as he

entered the Al Noor Mosque and

began shooting.

It is thought to be the first

confirmed film project about the

attack.

Mr Castaneda said it would be

a dramatised movie, which he

hoped would “get closer to the

truth.”

Mr Green said the last thing he

wants is a Hollywood treatment

or dramatisation.

The critical thing for us is

the protection of the dignity of

people trying to get their lives

back. So to Hollywood-ise it

. . . I’m not interested. It would

go against everything we’re

trying to do.”

Mr Masoud said he wanted

the film to “bring people all

over the world together to

discuss that day and continue

a positive dialogue for a future

based on genuine mutual

understanding.”

The film would follow a

family “facing death and

destruction in Afghanistan who

escape with their lives” meshed

with the Christchurch terror

attack.

“In Christchurch, on March

15, the world witnessed an

unspeakable crime against

humanity,” said Mr Masoud.

The story that Hello Brother

will bring to audiences is just one

step in the healing process, so that

we might all better understand

each other, and the root causes of

hatred, racism, supremacy and

terrorism,” he said.

Mr Masoud will produce

the New Zealand-set film

Intersection

upgrade

brings in

feedback

• By Jess Gibson

A PROPOSAL to upgrade a

contentious intersection has

received more feedback than the

city council’s draft Annual Plan.

Public consultation is open

until June 10 for two options to

improve safety at the Breens,

Harewood and Gardiners Rds

junction.

The city council has received

407 submissions since last Monday,

while it received 247 on its

draft Annual Plan over a month.

Option one, which is the city

council’s preferred option, is to

make Gardiners and Breens Rds

a left-turn in and left-turn out

only by closing the median on

Harewood Rd.

Option two is to install traffic

lights at the intersection.

City councillor Aaron Keown

has been campaigning to have

traffic lights installed at the

intersection for three years.

Cr Keown said the preferred

option would introduce major

issues by cutting off Harewood

Rd and forcing people to drive

around the block or make

dangerous U-turns.

FORMER unsuccessful

parliamentary candidates are

among eight People’s Choice

nominations for the regional

council.

The Labour-aligned group

is contesting for all eight

Christchurch seats at the

Environment Canterbury table

in October’s local body elections.

The

nominations

include former

in the Ilam

electorate in 2017, finishing

councillor Raf Manji and

8915 votes behind incumbent

National MP Gerry Brownlee.

Mr Dann stood for Ilam in

2014, also losing to Mr Brownlee

by 11,898 votes.

Mr Rimell will stand for

POLICE HAVE recovered 17

plaques stolen from a cemetery

just outside of Christchurch.

The bronze plaques from

Springston Cemetery were

found at a scrap metal dealer in

Christchurch on Monday night.

The Selwyn District Council,

which manages the cemetery,

said 40 plaques were stolen

between Anzac Day and last

Thursday.

Most of the plaques were for

servicemen in a designated part

of the cemetery. Metallic plaques

have been taken from other

graves in the cemetery.

Police refused to say the name

or suburb of the scrap metal

dealer, citing “privacy reasons”.

A spokeswoman said police

are following lines of inquiry to

locate those responsible.

“Police received information

from a party involved that the

plaques had been sold to a scrap

dealer. The details on the plaques

had reportedly been removed,”

she said.

Police also refused to identify

the party involved due to privacy.

The plaques have not been

returned to families and police

would not confirm when it will

be handed back.

One of the stolen plaques was

that of Lincoln resident Bruce

Tweedy’s parents. His father

Errol served in the Korean War

and is buried with his mother

Marion.

Mr Tweedy welcomed the

police’s find.

“Catching the offenders is

probably the ideal thing,” he

said.

“I’m hoping they’re not

children or youth and they go

Said Selwyn Mayor Sam

Broughton: “We’re grateful to

police for the work they have

been doing on this, our focus

now is on replacing the plaques

for the families and in respect

to Selwyn residents who gave so

much to the district and to New

Zealand.”

Mr Tweedy said it was “great”

the district council is working

with Veterans Affairs to replace

the plaques.

Lime may

soon share

the streets

• By Anan Zaki

THE CITY council is expected

to make an announcement

on new e-scooter operators in

Christchurch in the coming

weeks.

The shared e-scooter network

in the city is currently monopolised

by California-based

company Lime.

But that may be about to

change as the city council is

working with other operators

looking to enter the city.

Said city council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas: “Staff are still working

through this and the council

will hopefully be in a position to

make an announcement in about

two to three weeks.”

The Star asked the city council

which other companies have

expressed interest, but it did not

respond to the question.

In February, the city council

allowed Lime to operate 1000

scooters. It also capped the total

number of e-scooters for the city

at 1600, for other companies to

operate.

Other e-scooter operators have

already been announced for

Auckland and Wellington.

Cantabrians not good at making

• By Sophie Cornish

WHEN IT comes to buckling up

– Cantabrians have proven to be

some of the worst.

Last year, data revealed the

Canterbury Metro area had the

highest amount of restraint offences

in the country – taking the

lead by more than 400.

In 2018, a whopping 3054 restraint

offences were recorded by

police in the area.

This includes all restraint-use

offences such as seat belts and

child restraints

but excludes restraint

equipment

offences such as

broken seat belts

or non-approved

or ineffective

child restraints.

Ash Tabb

The lack of

‘making it click’

led police to issue

infringement notices to the value

of $444,600 for the area.

Counties Manukau Central

was the runner-up with 2610 seat

belt offences in 2018.

Police issued fines of $366,600

for the area.

Hamilton City was the third

worst at strapping in with 2610

offences recorded for 2018, police

handing out $292,950 in fines.

Canterbury road policing manager

Inspector Ash Tabb said as

seat belts are one of the cheapest,

easiest to use and most effective

safety devices in vehicles,

police place a lot of focus on

them.

“We complete operations

regularly identifying drivers

or passengers not wearing seat

belts to change their behaviour

. . . additionally all police staff

travelling on the roading network

look for occupants of vehicles

not wearing restraints . . . it is all

about changing the mindset to

ensure seat belts are worn.”

Inspector Tabb said it is common

for motorists to tell police

that they simply forgot to put

their seat belts on.

“This is not an excuse. A vast

majority of people do wear seat

belts when they are in a vehicle

and for most it is a learned behaviour

. . . it feels strange not to

have one on. Even young children

know the importance of this and

tell adults off if they don’t put seat

belts on fast enough.”

Others tell police they were

“just popping down to the local

shops.”

But Inspector Tabb says the

risk is still high.

“Crashes happen at any time

and there is no excuse to think

RISK:

Failing

to wear a

seat belt

will result

in fine if

caught by

police. The

chance

of injury

in a crash

is also

greatly

enhanced.

you shouldn’t wear one for short

trips. The risk is too great.”

Generally the public are “very

good” at ensuring their children

are safe in their vehicles, Inspector

Tabb says.

The only issue we see regularly

is children who are not restrained

in approved seats as the parents

believe they are old enough to not

require one. Age is one factor but

the size of the child is another

important factor.”

He recommends using a child

restraint or booster seat until

your child reaches 148cm tall or

is 11-years-old.

$1m toilets

for Lake

Roto Kohatu

• By Jess Gibson

TWO TOILET blocks will be

installed at Roto Kohatu Reserve

at a cost of $1 million, with one

more cubicle than expected.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board approved

the decision to install the

facilities at Lake Roto Kohatu and

Lake Rua its meeting on Monday.

There are currently

only portaloos at the site on

Sawyers Arms Rd, which has a

high number of annual visitors

who use the lakes for watersports,

swimming and picnics.

It was initially proposed that

each block would have two cubicles

and an outside shower.

But the city council decided to

include three cubicles in the block

beside Lake Rua after public feedback

suggested future proofing

the services to allow for growth.

To cover the cost of the $95,000

cubicle, the city council have

reduced some of the planned road

upgrades at the site.

Community board chairman

Sam MacDonald said he is glad

the city council enhanced the

designs after looking at the

feedback, rather than having a

new design come back before the

board at a later date.

Opposition mounts to seaplane plan

• By Louis Day

OPPOSITION IS growing

against the plan to bring

seaplanes to Lyttelton Harbour.

The Civil Aviation Authority

is seeking feedback on Rangiorabased

company Peninsula Air

Ltd’s plan to construct a waterdrome

in the harbour.

The 1km runway would be

located between

Rapaki and

Quail Island

and would

provide

seaplanes with

an area to take

off and land

Ken

Maynard

and from where

people could be

taken on scenic

tours of the

peninsula.

The Diamond Harbour Community

Association has made a

submission to the CAA detailing

their concerns over the plan.

“We are concerned about the

effects on other users of the harbour

such as waka ama, kayaks,

swimmers, yachts, motorboats,

the list goes on,” said association

chairman Richard Suggate.

Mr Suggate said they also had

concerns over noise.

“All in all it is just another

intrusion into the harbour and

effect on people, wildlife and

our amenity which is just for the

news online at www.star.kiwi

profit of a company and to the

benefit of cruise ship passengers.”

The Lyttelton Community

Association is also in opposition

to the seaplanes.

“We live in a port town so

a certain amount of noise is

expected but it does not need

to be noisier than it already is,”

said association chairman Ken

Maynard.

Peninsula Air Ltd director

Mark Christensen did not

wish to discuss the matter with

The Star and said he would

be approaching people with

concerns directly.

However, he previously told

The Star the impact on residents

would be minimal.

“We intend to use a Cessna

Caravan – its turbine engine is

quiet. There are also noise rules

within both the Regional Coastal

Plan and the City Plan which the

activity will need to meet,” he

said.

Lyttelton business owners have

also expressed their concerns.

The pro is tourism and the

con is noise. I live here on the

port, I’m probably one of the

Civil and Naval owner Louis

Dyer.

Lyttelton Coffee Company

owner Stephen Mateer said he

did not like the sound of seaplanes

coming to the harbour.

“I could care less what it brings

here in terms of tourism, my

main concern would be the impact

it would have on the Marae

“We are humbled by the extraordinary

Getting away for Mother’s Day

JUST IN case you didn’t read last

week’s column, we all got away for

a short family vacation/Mothers’

Day escape to Greymouth at the

end of last week.

Vittoria also only naps once a

day now. It’s a tough transition

for me. Whatever, don’t judge me

parents of older kids.

Pro-tip; a long car ride across

the Southern Alps can give the

illusion of a much longer nap

time. As long as they can’t ask:

“Are we there yet?”

We managed to get away for

our trip a mere 40min after our

scheduled departure time.

Vittoria went straight

into her nap as we left the city,

but with a couple of stops

through the mountains

(including the wonderful Otira

Stagecoach Hotel) the total trip

took longer than it would have on

the bus.

I actually enjoyed that though, it

felt more like an old-school Kiwi

whānau getaway. We even stayed

in a holiday park and had a pub

meal on the first night.

Love it.

We managed to get in a

fair amount of sightseeing

and relaxation in a couple of

days, with Friday’s perfect

weather making a great

accompaniment to the views at

Punakaiki.

I even managed to sneak in a

tour at the Monteith’s Brewery.

VITTORIA

& Matt

Just me though, can you imagine

taking a toddler to a brewery?

For Vittoria, the best part

was quite probably the

playground at the holiday

park. Unfortunately, it started

pouring down with rain not long

after we arrived so she only got to

play on it for like five minutes on

day one.

You should have seen how

heartbroken she was when I took

her back to the room.

There were “everyone-thinks-

I’m-a-bad-parent” level crying

and screaming.

The next day, her reaction

when she saw that it was still there

and able to be played on

was awesome. She actually said

“wow.”

She’s not even talking yet but

the playground managed to coax

out what could be considered an

actual recognisable word.

Damn, that’s a good

playground.

To finish off our trip we took

even longer to come home on

Saturday, adding in more stops.

I think this could become a

Mothers’ Day tradition.

A GROUP of golfers are dodging

more than just the odd bunker,

long grass or water hazard: They

are dodging coffins as well.

Each week at the nine-hole

Lincoln Golf Club, with the

cemetery as the backdrop, at

least 50 golfers ranging in age

from 60 to 92 take part in the

Wednesday’s Whackers or as

it is dubbed over a drink on

the 19th hole – Coffin Dodgers

Wednesday. It is an 18-hole

stableford competition, with the

best score in each group often

earning a free ticket into the meat

raffle drawn at the end of the day.

While friendship and banter

are the driving force behind

the initiative, make no mistake,

many are out there trying to

shoot under their age.

Bill Campbell has been a

regular Wednesday Whacker for

more years than he can remember.

“I’m a broken-down brick-layer,

you know? The body is rooted,

but I love the game,” he said.

Campbell, who has been a

member of the club since 1969,

said it was the banter after each

round which kept him coming

back.

The chat is the guts of the

whole day and the highlight of

my whole week.

“If it’s a nice day, we sit there

and talk s**t and it’s wonderful.

“With Lincoln golf course

played around a cemetery, we

thought we often poke fun at

ourselves and say we’re all Coffin

Dodgers.”

Campbell describes himself as

“a baby in the group” at 77-yearsold.

“Dave Donald (father of the late

former Green Party leader Rod

Donald), is 91 and he plays every

week.

“Ed Henderson is 87 and he

comes out each week and he

shoots under his age almost every

time he plays.

“As I say to him, each year he

gets older, it’s getting easier for

him because he gets an extra

shot.

“I shot under my age for the

first time six weeks ago and that’s

where the competitive nature

begins and ends,” he said.

“People want to score low for

themselves.”

Life member Morrie Henderson,

81, is the designated barman

each Wednesday and said it has

grown from humble beginnings

in the late 80s to early 90s.

“We had the Selwyn veterans

who met on a Thursday once a

month and the thing was you

could only join when you turned

60 and you had to put your name

down at 55 to be eligible because

there was so many people playing,”

he said.

“So a few people started playing

on a Wednesday and what

was half a dozen has, over time

become 50 people.

Henderson said he had been

a member for 53 years and is a

proud Coffin Dodger.

“Above the bar, there’s a row of

photos with life members on it

and of course there’s only three of

us left now I think and I believe

“Back in my early days if you

were 60, you dressed old, you

looked old, you were old but

these days if you retired at 60

you’re doing well.” Henderson

said it allowed people to stay active

and give wives a well-earned

break from their husbands.

“If I only play a round a week,

I’d rather play on a Wednesday,

than a club day on a Saturday

because it is less competitive.

“Still, if you ending winning

Major makeover set

to revitalise High St

EARTHQUAKE-battered

High St is in line for a

makeover that reflects

its special character

and position as one of

Christchurch’s most

treasured central city

streets.

The city council is proposing

to revitalise High St

from Cashel St to St Asaph

St to address the damage

caused by the earthquakes

and to make the road more

attractive and peoplefriendly.

As part of the upgrade

work, the city council is

also proposing to extend

the route the tram operates

utilising Lichfield, Poplar

and High Sts.

“We want to help restore

the vibrancy of High St and

make it a more attractive

place for people to visit

and do business,’’ says city

council transport planning

and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis.

“High St took a battering

in the earthquakes

but thanks to the efforts

of private investors it is

starting to re-emerge as a

destination. It is important

we support their efforts

by providing them with

an inviting streetscape

that meets the needs of all

users.’’

Key features of the upgrade

work the city council

is proposing include:

•Widening the footpaths

where possible to cater for

the potential increase in

foot traffic created by those

accessing the planned

multi-use arena, the Ara

Institute and new businesses

in the area and to

provide space for outdoor

dining areas.

•Simplifying the intersection

at Tuam and High

Sts.

•Introducing a 10km/h

speed limit to reinforce the

street’s special character as

a destination.

A DRAFT arts strategy

inviting exploration of

Christchurch’s dynamic

arts and cultural landscape

is out for public feedback.

The draft strategy, Toi

Ōtautahi – Christchurch

Arts, is a first for the arts in

New Zealand and outlines

the steps Christchurch will

take to be seen as the best

place in Aotearoa to live

and be creative.

“This is a new kind of

partnership strategy, cocreated

and to be co-owned

with the arts sector, major

funding agencies including

Creative New Zealand,

PROJECT: A plan to extend the central city

tramline along Lichfield, Poplar and High Sts is

under way.

•Planting additional trees

and a large rain garden.

•Making High St

between Tuam St and St

Asaph St a one-way street,

north to south.

•Extending the tram

route along Lichfield St,

Poplar St and High St.

“To enhance the

streetscape and to provide

better facilities for users we

are proposing to reduce the

amount of on-street parking

in High St, but there is ample

off-street parking available

close by,’’ Ms Ellis says.

Most of the parking provided

will be 60min parking

to cater for shoppers

and business clients. Loading

zones, mobility parks

and motorcycle parks will

also be provided.

Under the proposed upgrade,

High St’s distinctive

bronze corgis remain part

of the streetscape but they

Rātā Foundation, ChristchurchNZ

and other key supporters,”

says city council

principal arts adviser Kiri

Jarden.

“We want an environment

where creative people

are attracted to live and

produce work by positioning

our city as a place

where experimentation

and artistic risk taking are

supported, and in so doing

ensure diverse and rich

opportunities to encounter,

experience and participate

in the arts,” Ms Jarden says.

The draft strategy

outlines several ways that

will be moved to a spot by

the proposed tram shelter

so they do not obstruct the

footpath. The wind sculpture,

Nucleus, will also remain

in its current location

at the intersection of High

and Manchester Sts.

Before the city council

finalises it plans for High

St, it wants to hear what

the public thinks about the

proposed changes.

Feedback can be placed

online any time until June

10.

•If you have any

questions about the

proposed upgrade,

you can attend a dropin

session at Epic, cnr

Tuam and Manchester

Sts, between noon

and 2pm on May

23, Breakfree on

Cashel, 165 Cashel St,

between noon and

2pm on May 30.

Art plan to bring life to city

our city can support the

growth and development

of our local arts sector

and attract national and

international artists to

Christchurch. This includes

setting up an arts

office and a joint leadership

group made up from key

arts sector representatives

to deliver the strategy for

Christchurch.

The aim is to bring wider

benefits to Christchurch

by activating and bringing

life to the city, improving

community well-being and

identity, attracting visitors

and boosting our economy.

THEATRE/ARTS 21

Lyttelton actor takes play to England

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

“LET’S GET the bugger over

there and see what can happen.”

That was the plan behind

a fundraising effort that has

gone into getting Lytteltonbased

performer Tom Trevella

to England to work under

established actor and director

Adrian Rawlins.

At the end of the month, the

long-standing Lyttelton Arts

Factory actor will fly to the town

of Beverley, near Hull, to star in

a contemporary murder mystery

play named Chippy, which will

premiere at the East Riding

Theatre.

He will be working under the

direction of Rawlins, who is best

known for his role of James Potter

in the Harry Potter films and

Arthur Kidd in the 1989 horror

film The Woman in Black.

More than $3500 was raised

at a quiz night on Saturday held

at the theatre company to help

cover Trevella’s travel costs –

including airfares, train tickets,

insurance and visas.

Trevella said it was really

“humbling” to see the Lyttelton

community turn out to support

his trip overseas and was looking

forward to being able to give

back next year.

Chippy is earmarked to be

MURDER MYSTERY: Lyttelton Arts Factory actor Tom Trevella and Hester Ullyart will perform at

the East Riding Theatre in an original play by Joe Bennett, named Chippy. The show will come to

Lyttelton next year. ​

performed in the LAF next

year.

“It is a chance for me to broaden

my horizon and get to work

in a different environment,”

Trevella said.

Trevella described Rawlins

as an “actor’s director” and was

most looking forward to taking

advantage of his knowledge and

experience.

“Just working with a professional,

he has been working in

the industry for so many years

He is going to have a lot to pass

on,” Trevella said.

The opportunity for Trevella

to travel overseas is born out

of the strong professional relationship

between LAF

creative director Mike Friend

and Rawlins.

The relationship between the

two theatre companies has led

to the formation of an artist

exchange programme which has

given actors the opportunity to

travel between England and New

Zealand.

In the past four years, the theatre

companies have collaborated

on a range of projects. It has seen

English actresses Annie Kirkman

and Hester Ullyart travel to

the city to perform in The Butler

Dresses Again at LAF.

Ullyart also returned to LAF

this year to be mentored by

Friend to direct the show of Our

Town.

The show will see Trevella

perform alongside Ullyart,

who has worked at a range of

theatre companies including

Northern Broadsides, West

Yorkshire Playhouse and

Sheffield Theatres.

Trevella said the beauty of having

worked with Ullyart before is

already having a rapport which

makes it easier because there

is only two weeks to rehearse

together.

As well as heading to England,

he has numerous projects on

the go including television pilot

Don’t Be Frank produced by Nick

Mclean and Motion and Light

Video Production.

Meat found on vegan pizza

• By Katie Harris

DOMINO’S PIZZA has

apologised for meat found on a

vegan pizza.

Kate Williams ordered two

vegan pizzas from Domino’s

Rolleston, but when they arrived,

she and her husband discovered

what looked like several pieces of

meat on both of the pizzas.

“I noticed the first piece of

meat sitting out in the open,

then two more that were easily

discernible. I grabbed a fork and

checked under the bits of mushroom

and spinach, and realised

that there were at least seven

pieces on just the one pizza,”

she said. The pair returned to

the store, where a staff member

apologised and they were offered

a replacement pizza and a dessert,

which was also not vegan.

Mrs Williams said she and her

husband were shocked that the

meat was added to their pizza

topping and no one in the store

noticed.

“I find it very hard to reconcile

that someone could miss that

much meat being accidentally

added while preparing a vegan

pizza,” she said.

Though they had not eaten

the meat, she said it was hard

handling “pieces of flesh.”

Mrs Williams posted her

experience on the Vegans of

DISCOVERY: Meat was found on a vegan pizza from

Rolleston Domino’s.

Aotearoa New Zealand Facebook

page and her story got more than

78 comments and 80 reactions.

The experience made Mrs

Williams and her husband, who

are committed vegans, question

going to non-vegan restaurants

for fear of cross-contamination

or this happening again.

“I would still like to support

non-vegan establishments

who are now providing vegan

options, but if they cannot be

bothered to ensure a reasonable

level of care and knowledge by

their staff when preparing this,

then they should not be offering

them,” she said.

A spokesperson from

Domino’s New Zealand

said it had clearly let its

customers down, which was

disappointing.

“We pride ourselves on

offering our vegan customers

choice, something we are very

passionate about.”

The spokesperson said

Domino’s has strict food

handling processes and will be

educating and retraining the

staff members involved.

THIS WEEK, Canterbury

University hosted the start of what

will be an important conversation

about the options that could

be developed for the future

ownership and governance of the

Otakaro Avon River Corridor

(formerly known as the residential

red zone).

I know there are strong opinions

about these matters. That’s

good. Every person I’ve talked to

wants the best for the city and in

terms of our place at the centre of

the South Island, what that means

to our region and beyond.

I am personally interested in

hearing all the pros and cons of

the different options and finding

ways of taking these into the

wider community, so that we can

fully engage across the city in a

meaningful way, where the exchange

of ideas is encouraged and

nobody is excluded from freely

expressing alternative views.

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

NEWS 23

Views sought on

future of Otakaro

Avon River Corridor

In my view there is not a

single right answer to any of the

questions that can be raised in

relationship to ownership, governance

and the need to attract

investment beyond central and

local government.

There is a lot to be done before

decisions need to be made as well

– making decisions about infrastructure,

including roads, pipes

and stopbanks and amalgamating

titles – so we have plenty of time

for this conversation.

And this is an inter-generational

series of projects, and we

could use the transition to test

future governance arrangements.

Anyway food for thought. I’d be

interested in hearing your views.

Dalziel a question, email

GARDENING ADVICE

Today’s winning question

came from Nicole Whitteker.

Congratulations!

I’m having to shift my vege

Q planter box, have you got any

tips for repositioning it, and

what I can do to boost the soil please?

A

It is important to place your planter box in a position

that receives full sun and protection from cold,

southerly winds if possible - this may be different to

where it was postioned during the summer months.

This is especially important if you wish to successfully

cultivate vegetables, or herbs over winter.

Now is an ideal time to change the growing medium. Remove all

existing mix and at the same time, give the inside of the planter

box a thorough clean and check the draining holes are adequate.

Replace with new growing media like Daltons Garden Time

Vegetable Mix or Planting Mix, which are both suited to planter

boxes. These mixes allow for free drainage while providing the

necessary nutrients for the development of healthy veggies.

Position your planter box on some wooden blocks to raise it

above the deck or patio level so water drains away freely.

It is also worthwhile adding a layer of mulch on top which helps

insulate plants and their roots during winter. Throughout the

growing period, apply side dressings of Daltons Garden Time

Vegetable Fertiliser and water it in well.

OUR PEOPLE - ANNALISA POPE

The Star Thursday May 16 2019

Caring for sick and injured animals

SURGERY: SPCA Christchurch centre head vet Annalisa

Pope has had many challenging moments over her 12 year

career.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

World Veterinary Day was

celebrated at the end of

last month. Sophie Cornish

caught up with SPCA

Christchurch centre head

vet Annalisa Pope, who has

been a practising vet for 12

years

When did you first decide you

wanted to be a vet and why?

I was about 13-years-old

when I decided I wanted to be

a vet. Initially I wanted to be a

paediatrician, a children’s doctor,

but I decided I couldn’t really

cope with some of the things they

had to deal with. Obviously, I had

always liked animals, so I figured

that was the next best bet.

What are the most

challenging things about being

a vet?

There are multiple things

that are challenging. I guess my

particular role at SPCA is a bit

different to normal vet practice

where you have the challenges

of the animals and the clients.

The clients are difficult at times

because the animals are their

babies, they will do anything and

everything for them. But at the

SPCA, we don’t have those clients

to deal with per say, we have

these animals who don’t have

an owner. But then we do have

some clients that are very difficult

because they have to go through

the inspectorate and they are not

necessarily the easiest to deal

with. I think either way in any

vet practice the client is one of

the difficulties, but they are also

one of the most rewarding components

of vet practice. Clients

keep you doing what you do. It’s

the same thing with the animals,

some can be really aggressive,

but if you spend that time with

them and turn that corner with

them, the reward that comes

out is amazing. Everything that

is a positive is also potentially a

negative.

You work with some

incredible diagnostic tools to

help with your job – tell me

about these?

It has evolved insanely, it’s

incredible. At the SPCA we have

limited access to diagnostics. One

of the old clinics I use to work at

had a CT machine, which was

pretty rare, there are only two in

Christchurch. They can x-ray for

soft tissue. Obviously when we

deal with X-rays, we are looking

at bones and then with an ultrasound

you are looking at real

time soft tissue. CT machines

actually go full blown into breaking

things down, like a 3D model.

Then there are MRIs. For those,

we actually have to use human

machines. Obviously we have to

block out a time with places that

will let us take an animal in. All

these things are very expensive.

For a CT you are spending about

$1000 and an MRI is about

$4000. Ultrasounds are probably

one of our key things because

they can help us diagnose so

many things internally, but then

again, X-rays are probably the

most used thing in veterinary.

I do think things are changing

a bit these days in that they are

still quite limited. You still can’t

get all the picture you need, so

obviously a combination of all

these diagnostics is the best way

to work it, but we can’t all afford

that. An ultrasound at a practice

would cost about $400 and for

x-rays, you often have to sedate

the animal, so that adds about

another $200 cost. People do have

insurance these days and are

much more willing to do these

things, which is amazing. Obviously

at the SPCA we are pretty

limited in how we proceed with

financial things.

Any funny moments from life

as a vet?

I remember there was one time

with a turtle in Ashburton. This

person turned up for the consult

without the turtle, they forgot it.

I called him into the consult and

asked if he had it and he had to go

back home and get it. Sometimes

clients take explanations literally

for example when I describe a

bone on an x-ray as “moth-eaten”

the owner sometimes asks “how

did the moths get in there?”

•From page 27

Most of the funny stories in my

career tend to involve some form of

bodily fluid – pus, blood, poo, pee,

anal gland material, reproductive

excretions – and either getting

them on myself or a poor nurse

who is unfortunate enough to

be helping me at the time. It’s

absolutely gross, but if you didn’t

laugh about it, you’d definitely cry.

Have you had any injuries

from your work?

Yeah, nothing worse than a cat

bite. But anyone who has had a

cat bite, like one through a finger

will know that it is not as pathetic

as it sounds. It is a horrific injury.

It leaves disgusting bacteria

under your skin, which leads to

a horrible infection, throbbing

in the middle of the night, it is

awful. I have not been mauled

by a dog yet, I’m sure that will

happen one day. I know many

vets that have and you can’t help

but become really cautious and

get shy about going near them

again. I find birds to be one of

the most aggressive. Their beak

hooks on to your finger and

doesn’t let go and it becomes very

difficult. Big birds in particular,

big parrots can be quite nasty. I

find cats the easiest because I can

control them the best.

What is the most unusual

surgery or procedure you have

had to do?

This is a hard one, because

things like fixing a turtles shell

or repairing a turtles shell is

probably one of the more unusual

things for me, but for other vets,

it is not unusual. There are people

that do it all the time. Turtles can

break their shells on lots of things

in their environments, they have

parts snap off. If it is exposing

their inner bits then it can be

a bit dangerous. You literally

have to glue it back together, it’s

quite neat. You can make fake

shells too. I have done so many

surgeries people might find odd,

but I don’t really find them that

odd anymore. There was a dog

that had all her girly bits hanging

out and I had to surgically pop

that back in and stitch it in place

which was a bit odd. I had a

kitten that had a concave chest.

The condition causes other issues

and they can’t necessarily live like

that. Often they need to be put to

sleep as the cost of the surgery is

too much. But the one that ended

up here, it was a decision of either

putting her to sleep or trying the

surgery. So she had a wee cast

made out of a dog’s leg cast and

we had to go through sternum,

while also trying to avoid the

lungs, heart and blood vessels.

Can you list all the animals

you have worked with?

Again, it’s one of those things

where there is no black and white.

There are so many cats that will

just let you do anything, but

379-3589

then some cats you can’t even

look at without them getting

mad. I have had birds which

includes all canaries, budgies,

ducks, chickens and geese. We

have recently had mice brought

in. I have had mice brought in

my practice before and people

are very legitimately attached

to them. Rats and lots and lots

of rabbits and cats and dogs

obviously. I’ve dealt with goats

and I’ve had a bearded dragon,

which is a lizard about the size of

a small cat and a red-eared slider

turtle. I managed to diagnose and

treat pinworms in the dragon.

Probably the easiest I find is cats,

in so many ways. But, they are

also the feistiest and can cause

the most damage and people

don’t realise how much damage

they can do.

What sort of study did you

do to become a vet and tell me a

little about your career so far?

I went to Massey University.

in Wellington. I am originally

from Christchurch. I did a

different degree first and then

did vet school. I spent eight years

at uni. In that time period I met

my now husband who lived in

Christchurch and we had a long

distance relationship. That kind

of dictated when I finished vet

school where I was going to live.

So I moved back to Christchurch

and got a job in Ashburton

and commuted there daily.

love for pets

Then the clinic I worked

for actually opened a clinic in

Christchurch the following year

so I worked for them and went to

another clinic for eight years and

another one for a couple of years,

before coming to the SPCA.

When was the first time you

did hands-on work?

We had to do large animal

practice regardless of what you

wanted to do. During my time

of studying you had to do 14

weeks of experience on farms,

four weeks of cows, four weeks of

sheep and then you can make up

the rest of the time with horses or

whatever you wanted. Obviously

being a city girl, it was a bit

difficult. I started with milking

cows in Culverden. It was a good

time, once I got into it. Also, once

you get into vet school, you have

to do all this experience in vet

clinics and go out with the vets to

the farmers. I found it to be very

male-orientated. Even though I

was capable of holding a cow’s

foot while the vet was working

with it, the farmers would try and

avoid giving it to me.

Have you ever performed on a

pet of your own?

I have. I actually I prefer

to because I am a little bit

pessimistic in the fact that I don’t

want to blame anyone else if

anything goes wrong, its all my

fault. I did have one situation

with my cat, I had to put him to

sleep last year unfortunately, but

he did make it to age 15. He all of

a sudden had hurt his leg and I

knew he needed surgery. But he

was a really difficult, grumpy cat.

At the time I worked with a very

good orthopaedic surgeon who

could have done the surgery for

me.

Tell me about your family?

I have my husband Jeremy and

two kids, an 8-year-old daughter

Lilly and a six-year-old son, Stan.

We have two dogs and four cats.

I am officially a hoarder. We use

to have one dog and three cats,

but we had to put one to sleep

and took on two others and got

a dog. One of the hardest parts

about working here is not keeping

them all. Quite often I will foster

them. My husband has given me

a limit and said that’s absolutely

it now, but he’s a bit of a softy and

I can turn him around if I have

to. He gets attached to them too.

The kids love it but every time

we bring one home they ask if

we can keep them too. I think

it’s quite an important lesson for

them to learn. Just because we are

looking after this animal doesn’t

necessarily mean it’s not going

to be adopted by someone who

will take it to a forever home. I

have recently taken up indoor

netball and I enjoy gardening.

I’m really big on socialising and

catching up with friends when I

get downtime.

From first-five to Kiwi craft pies

• By Gordon Findlater

STEPHEN BRETT was once

regarded as the Crusaders next

great first-five before taking his

talents overseas.

Now, he’s reconnected with

two of his former Christchurch

Boys’ High School teammates

and is helping take a Kiwi

favourite to Europe.

Brett made 39 appearances

for the Crusaders between 2006

and 2009 scoring four tries and

amassing 164 points.

After hanging up his boots

last year, he’s now living in

Narbonne, France, and owns the

distribution rights to NZ Craft

Pies.

The company was started in

Sweden by Brett’s former CBHS

teammate Tom Simpson.

“I started three months ago

and business is booming. I’ve got

myself into a few restaurants and

a few stadiums,” he said.

There’s so many tourists I

know over here and the first

thing they do when they get back

home is have a pie because you

don’t have that opportunity here,

so there’s a big market for it

. . . the French don’t really know

pies, so I’m just trying to get

them into the French locals, but

we’re getting good comments

from them.”

They have also recently

expanded into Germany with

the help of Josh Keys, who also

played with Brett and Simpson

at CBHS.

Brett got his first taste of

rugby at four-years-old with

Sydenham.

However, he soon switched

codes and joined the Woolston

Rams rugby league club as his

grandfather was the president.

He comes from strong rugby

pedigree – his mother, Lesley,

played three tests for the Black

Ferns and his step-father, Victor

Simpson, was a stalwart of the

Canterbury midfield who played

two tests for the All Blacks in

1985.

His father Steve Brett is also a

former New Zealand volleyball

rep and played in the National

Basketball League in the 1980s

for Palmerston North.

Brett played league until his

teenage years when he returned

to union at CBHS.

He won Press Cups with the

first XV in 2002 and 2003 and

continued a tradition of the

school producing stand out firstfives

during the 1990s and 2000s,

including the likes of Andrew

Mehrtens, Dan Carter, Aaron

Mauger and Colin Slade.

“I wouldn’t have a clue why

they produced so many, I think

the first-fives just want to go to

that school . . . thing is I’m the

only one out of the lot who never

became an All Black,” said Brett.

Following secondary school,

Brett quickly progressed through

the ranks and was playing NPC

for Canterbury just a year out of

CBHS.

In 2006, he made his Crusaders

debut from the bench before

going onto make a name for

himself with Canterbury.

Brett’s most memorable season

with the Crusaders came in 2007

during Dan Carter’s sabbatical,

which saw him play 12 games

and have kicking duties for a

large chunk of the campaign.

In his early Crusaders days,

Brett shared an apartment with

former school friends before

moving in with Sean Maitland

and Kahn Fotuali’i near Rugby

Park.

“We used to ride our little 50cc

motorbikes to training,” he said.

“Back in those days we were all

single, so we went out for dinner

more often than we cooked.”

Following the 2009 Crusaders

•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

FLAIR: Brett turned heads

during his time with the

Crusaders as an exciting

runner of the ball at first-five,

now he’s selling Kiwi-style

pies in France. ​

campaign, Brett signed with the

Blues for two seasons.

“For me to get a better look

into the All Blacks I needed to

get out of DC’s [Dan Carter]

shadow. I had some chats with

Pat Lam and he proposed a really

good thing and it was something

I needed at that point in my

career,” said Brett.

In his final season with the

Blues in 2011, Brett helped them

Super Rugby semi-finals. Since

then the Auckland franchise

hasn’t made a play-off appearance.

Any staunch Crusaders fan

could also point out that Brett

was probably the last decent firstfive

to grace a Blues jersey.

However, Brett’s Blues days

ended in bizarre fashion.

He was rushed to hospital after

cutting his foot open at an end

of season party at Ali Williams’

house. Brett came out of a spa

pool and stood on a glass by the

side of it. He required a surgical

exploration, wash out and repair

of the damaged toes.

Soon after Brett moved to

Japan to join Toyota Verblitz on

a two-year deal, which ended any

hopes of an All Black cap.

“I probably shouldn’t have left

when I did to be honest. I probably

did leave a little bit early, but

I got offered a contract I couldn’t

resist,” he said.

Brett moved to France in 2013

and had stints with Narbonne,

Bayonne, Lyon and Clermont.

“I fell out of rugby when I was

playing over here if I’m honest

. . . back home there’s no pressure,

you just play for the love of

the game and your mates. Over

here if you lose a couple of games

you’ve got the club presidents

coming down on you.”

After retiring from rugby

with Narbonne last year, he has

become the club’s video analyst

and hopes to become a full-time

coach, working towards a degree

in September.

AUTHOR: Barry Bunting will tell the stories from behind the green gates of

nearly 500 clubs around the country.

Book to tell all about

country’s bowling clubs

• By Gordon Findlater

BARRY BUNTING is

looking to tell stories

dating back 100 years from

nearly 500 bowling clubs

around the country in a

book with the working

title of Behind the Green

Gate.

Since August the

semi-retired 75-year-old

Burnside Bowling Club

member has reached out to

every bowling club in New

Zealand looking to capture

all the unusual happenings

that have defined the

character and culture of a

bowling club.

There’s lot of things that

have gone on. Some will be

less than palatable, others

would be very palatable.

Some will be laughable and

some will be criminal,”

said Bunting.

The original idea for

the book began as early as

Bunting’s first experiences

CANTERBURY sealed

their second national

title in a row at the

weekend.

THey captured the title

in emphatic fashion by

dispatching Auckland 5-0

in their final match of the

league format competition.

with bowls when he took

up the sport after moving

to Christchurch in 1990.

“I found a level of

intrigue in how difficult

it was sometimes to get

into a bowling club and

through their gate. There

were different latches,

catches, weights and pulleys.

They all had different

mechanisms in which to

master before you could

get it,” said Bunting.

“While bowling clubs

are all the same, they’re all

unequally different.”

The book is expected to

tell stories not just from

clubs’ past histories, but

also where they are currently

and their plans for

the future.

“Bowling clubs are the

hub of many communities

around New Zealand.

Those clubs are used for

celebrations, wakes, and all

sorts of meetings. It’s from

within that I wanted to get

Earlier at the week-long

tournament in North

Harbour, the girls started

that need a bit of coaxing

out,” said Bunting.

“I found that Bert Sutcliffe,

was the piano man

for many New Zealand

touring cricket teams and

he was also good value on

the piano at his bowling

club – although he usually

needed a bit of persuading

to get started.”

Bunting has heard from

more than 200 clubs and is

currently looking to hear

from the remaining clubs

to complete the book. He

hopes to have the book

ready for release before

Christmas.

However, he says he

will still take time to

enjoy retirement in what

he calls the Avonhead

triangle.

“I’m 1.7km from home

to the bowling club, 1.7km

from the club to the pub

and 1.7km from the pub to

Keeper’s super save sends

Tech through to next round

• By Gordon Findlater

BRENDAN HALL made the

save of his life to send Cashmere

Technical through to the second

round of the Chatham Cup.

Hall, 19, was appearing in just

his second game for Tech when

they defeated Coastal Spirit 5-4

on penalties at Garrick Park on

Saturday. With regular firstteam

keeper Danny Knight on

holiday in England, Hall was

handed the gloves and came

up trumps after the score was

locked at 2-2 after extra time.

With the first nine penalties

successfully scored Hall had

a chance to win the match for

Tech if he could save Coastal’s

fifth attempt. After diving hard

to his right he stretched out his

left leg to divert the ball onto the

crossbar. It then propelled down

towards goal before Hall pounced

on it to win his side the match.

“I’ve seen it happen so many

times that the ball has gone up,

then keepers have celebrated and

the balls gone into the net, I just

didn’t want that to happen to

me,” said Hall.

The performance was made

sweeter for Hall and will give

him a confidence boost going

forward after letting in what he

described as a “soft goal in the

first 10 minutes,” while on his

debut for Tech’s premier side a

week earlier.

Saturday’s result the second year

running Tech eliminated Coastal

from the Chatham Cup in a penalty

shootout. In August Tech also

SKILL: Brendan Hall sent Cashmere Technical through to

the second round of the Chatham Cup with an

outstretched leg to deny Coastal Spirit in Tech’s 5-4 win

on penalties.

defeated Coastal in the English

Cup final 3-2 in extra time.

“We seem to produce some

great matches against Tech that

they end up winning, yeah,” said

Coastal coach Ekow Quainoo.

On Saturday Coastal opened

the scoring through Ash Wellbourne

and led 1-0 at half-time.

Andy Tuckey then levelled for

Cashmere in the second half

before Wellbourne scored a

second to restore Coastal’s lead.

However, Tech were awarded

a penalty in the 88th-minute

which was converted by Tom

Shwarz to send the match to

extra-time and eventually the

penalty shootout.

The rivals will meet again at

the same venue this Saturday in

a match which could all but seal

the Mainland Premier League

title for Tech.

Tech currently hold a fivepoint

advantage over Nelson

Suburbs and six-point advantage

on third placed Coastal in the

MPL. Tech also have a game in

hand on both teams with just

five rounds remaining.

The match will provide not

only provide Coastal a chance to

throw a spanner into Tech’s hunt

for back to back MPL titles, but

also an opportunity to reclaim

the Hurley Shield which Tech

have held since defeating Coastal

2-0 in March.

The Hurley Shield is the MPL’s

equivalent of the Ranfurly

Shield.

Footballers miss

out on selection

• By Gordon Findlater

YOUNG SOUTH Island talent

has been overlooked heading

into this year’s FIFA Under-17

Football World Cup.

On Tuesday the New Zealand

under-17 side was named for the

Panda Cup later this month in

China.

No Mainland Football or

Football South association

players have been selected in

the squad for the tournament,

which will be used as

preparation for the

World Cup later this

year.

The absence of any

Canterbury players in

the squad hasn’t come as

a surprise to Mainland

Football federation

development manager

Alan Walker.

“It comes down to the

process. What is the selection

process and how is the selection

process run out across the

country,” said Walker.

“What we’ve seen is the

previous two World Cup cycles

with the under-17s is where you

have a coach and an assistant

coach that were from Auckland

and aligned to a couple of schools

up there . . . they ended up with

quite a lot of players from those

schools and from the Auckland

region which made up 70 percent

of the squad.

“What you’ve got this time

around is a coach that is aligned

Alan Walker

to Wellington Phoenix and to the

Wellington region, and you’ve

now got a majority of the players

coming from that environment.”

New Zealand under-17 coach

Jose Figueira is also the coach for

Team Wellington in the national

league. Of the 18 players selected

in the squad for the Panda Cup,

11 are from the Capital Football

Federation.

It is understood Mainland and

Football South players are at a

disadvantage to gain selection

into age group national

teams due to having little

opportunity to make an

impression on national

team coaches.

These opportunities

are often limited to a

one of trial where they

would have to make a big

enough impression to

convince the coach they

are more deserving of a

spot than a player a North Island

based coach has spent more time

observing.

Adam Hillis is the only player

with Mainland ties in the team.

However, the former Nelson

product moved to Wellington to

be part of the Phoenix academy.

Meanwhile, Christchurch

product Joe Bell will captain the

New Zealand side at FIFA U-20

World Cup in Poland later this

month.

Bell is the lone South Islander

in the team. However, he moved

to Wellington to join the Phoenix

academy as a teenager.

Lexus UX – gateway into the luxury brand

• By Ross Kiddie

I NEVER would have picked the

change of direction that Lexus has

travelled in the last few years.

The company came onto the

global market in 1989 with a

large sedan and since then sport

sedans, coupes and convertibles,

along with a luxury four-wheeldrive

vehicle, have accounted for

a large part of its sales.

However, in recent times, to

capitalise on the global demand

for sport utility vehicles, Lexus

has changed direction slightly,

there are a large number of SUVs

in the company’s line-up, and it is

ever-increasing.

Just recently, a compact SUV

has been launched by Lexus.

Badged simply UX, it sits beneath

the small-to-medium NX and

RX. If you think of Toyota RAV4

size, then the UX is about that

stature, however, it gets a heap of

upmarket kit that clearly has it

sitting in the luxury car category.

The UX lands here in force,

there are seven front-wheel-drive

and all-wheel-drive variants, all

are 2-litre powered, yet there is

the option of hybrid technology.

From what I’m picking up from

Lexus New Zealand and at local

dealer level, the hybrid is the car

to beat and it is the subject of this

evaluation , an F-Sport Limited to

be exact. It sits at $72,900.

Incidentally, the UX hits the

LEXUS UX F-SPORT: Two-litre engine with or without hybrid

option.

showroom floors at $59,900 for

a 2-litre petrol, while a rangetopping

4WD Limited hybrid sits

at $75,900.

I’ve driven a lot of hybrids out

of the Lexus and Toyota stables

recently, and I agree, the UX in

hybrid form takes a lot of beating.

For one the hybrid system has

become what I would call normal.

Whereas once hybrids took a little

understanding and a technique

to drive them effectively, that

has all changed. Today’s hybrid

works much like any other petrolpowered

car, it feels just so right,

and in Lexus form the refinement

within the driveline mechanicals

makes it hard to detect any

transfer of power between electric

delivery and when the petrol

engine kicks in.

Of course, there are many

other benefits other than the

sophistication, the UX hybrid is

rated with a 4.5-litre per 100km

(63mpg) combined cycle fuel

usage rating. That claim sits

well with the readout on the

evaluation car, it was showing

around 7l/100km (40mpg) when

I took it back to the dealership.

The UX is also quick, that’s the

benefit of electric delivery. It will

scamper to 100km/h in 8.6sec,

and will complete an overtake

manoeuvre in 5sec. The latter

is attributed to the solid midrange

delivery between electric

and petrol, the UX has dynamic

performance, Lexus claiming

power outputs of 135kW and

188Nm.

Not only is the UX a spirited

drive, it also handles with aplomb.

I guess it doesn’t wear a F-Sport

• Price – Lexus UX 250h

F-Sport, $72,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4495mm; width, 1840mm;

height, 1520mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheel-drive,

1987cc, 135kW, 188Nm,

continuously variable

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.4sec

• Fuel usage – 4.5l/100km

badge for nothing, the UX has

accurate corner turn-in and

definite steering feel.

This is something Lexus does

so well, the steering is involving

and communicative. Riding on

beautiful Bridgestone Turanza

tyres (225/50 x 18in), there is a lot

of rubber in contact with the road

and it shows, grip levels are high

even without the four-wheeldrive

option.

There is little sensation power

is coming out the front wheels

only, the UX is balanced and

controlled and, of course, you

get an amazingly compliant ride,

traditional with all Lexus models.

That luxury feel doesn’t end

there, the cockpit and cabin area

is plush, the way Lexus create

interiors is a real credit. The test

car was trimmed with white

leather, yet there are contrasting

elements which work effectively

to tone down the overpowering

effect of light.

There are also the ingredients

which luxury car owners would

expect even from an SUV. The

UX is chock full of the latest

technology for safety, comfort

and convenience, and its styling

and design inside and out is eyecatching

and desirable. All of the

ingredients are in place to make

the UX very much a part of the

Lexus family.

Lexus claim the UX is the

gateway model into the brand. I

guess that’s a good call, however,

the company will have to market

that hard, Toyota have just

launched an amazing new RAV4,

and some models have similar

drivelines to the UX. While it’s nice

to step up into Lexus luxury, some

buyers may well be happy with the

cheaper option.

Wherever the UX goes in

terms of sales, it is just part of

a spectacular range of Lexus

models.

Personally, I’d still be sticking

to one of the sport sedans or

coupes from the stable, but for

those who do need or want an

SUV, the UX will certainly be

a purchase which will keep the

buyer happy for many years, and

it will definitely put a smile on

their face every time they see

the savings hybrids offer when it

comes to fill-up time at the local

service station.

MARCUS Armstrong is fourth

in the 2019 FIA formula 3

championship after third and

fifth placed finishes at the

opening round at Circuit de

Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain.

Armstrong and his Prema teammates

set the pace all weekend

against some of the most talented

rising race drivers in the world.

Armstrong started Saturday’s

race third position where he

would finish. His Russian teammate

Robert Shwartzman won

the race from pole. Fellow Prema

driver Jehan Daruvala finishing

seventh in race one before taking

out Sunday’s race, which reversed

the top eight from race one and

put him on the front row.

SOLID

START:

Marcus

Armstrong

leads Max

Fewtrell and

Juri Vips in

race two at

Circuit de

Barcelona-

Catalunya. ​

Mixed success

for Armstrong

Armstrong harried the opposition

all weekend long, making

several bold runs at the lead in

race one and rising to third in

race two, but in the latter was

overtaken in the closing laps to

finish fifth.

“We had a really good

start and a good launch. I went

outside a couple of people in turn

one which was pretty cool. The

pace was quite okay but we just

had a bad timing with the first

safety car, it would have been a

different race if I just got past

Fewtrell before it,” said Armstrong.

France will host round two of

the championship at the Circuit

Paul Ricard from June 21-23.

Draft system for Super Rugby?

HOW WOULD a draft

system like that used in major

American sports look in Super

Rugby and could it work?

Under the current format of

the competition the answer is

no. Mainly because the current

number of teams means there

would be to many overseas talents

plying their trade for New

Zealand franchises to register

interest from here.

However, with the number of

teams set to decrease to 14 from

2021 there’s no reason to believe

it might not be too long until a

purely transtasman or Pacific

competition is on the cards.

A 10-team competition

consisting of five New Zealand

teams, four Australian and a

Pacific team based in Auckland

could be the perfect recipe for a

draft system which would only

add intrigue and increase the

level of competition like it has

done in United States’ sports.

Yesterday, the future fate of

the NBA was reshaped when

the New Orleans Pelicans won

the NBA Draft Lottery. It means

they will all but likely select

Zion Williamson – a player

predicted to take over the league

like LeBron James – when the

NBA Draft rolls around in June.

A draft would be an opportunity

for the competition to have

a second peak in interest during

the off season. Some of New

Zealand top talents plying their

Super Rugby trade in Australia

would also surely increase interest

in tuning in for all Australian

match-ups at the late kick-off

time which currently provide

little or no reason for us watch.

First XV rugby has enjoyed

increased exposure since the inception

of live broadcasts started

by Sky’s Rugby Channel. A draft

of players being eligible following

their final year of school

would send interest through the

roof, just.

It’s no surprise college basketball

and football pack out

stadiums and have television

deals well into the hundreds of

millions with people wanting to

spot the future stars of the NBA

and NFL before they get there.

Yes, it would mean an end to

the tradition of the best local

talent being guaranteed to go on

and play for their nearest franchise.

However, with the level of

recruiting around today this is

becoming something of the past

as things stand.

Picture this, the Melbourne

Rebels use their first round pick

to select a highly touted talent

from the factory – Christchurch

Boys’ High School. All of a

sudden the Rebels have an

increased interest from across

the ditch and a team with a

potential fan base of close to

five million in their own greater

area have reason to believe

they might be able to string

together a half-decent team with

an addition of some up-andcoming

Kiwi talent.

VERY SELDOM does it

feature on the television

weather forecast, the time

difference to New Zealand is

45min and it claims to be the

first landfall every day to see

the sun.

The place I’m talking

about is Chatham Island,

the roads are mostly gravel,

power is generated by diesel

generators, and if you are

driving it’s almost a given

that you’ll wave to the car

coming towards you.

All of these ingredients,

and its isolation, made it an

improbable place for a new

vehicle launch, yet that’s

where Holden New Zealand

chose to fly motoring

journalists to drive its entire

sport utility vehicle fleet

including Commodore

Tourer in recognition of the

company’s 65th anniversary.

At best I’m a fair weather

flyer, the prospect of

travelling in a 65-year-old

aircraft across 800km of

ocean was a daunting a

prospect, however, once

on Chatham Island I can

see its attraction and the

reason why it is becoming

very much a trendy tourist

destination, and there is

development taking place

that will lure the adventureseeking

holidaymaker.

Those who are drawn to

a marine environment for

fishing and diving need to be

aware that the archipelago,

to which Chatham Island is

attached, is a magnet for the

great white shark. However,

bear in mind, that for all

of its isolation, wind aside,

its climate is reasonably

forgiving, they seldom have

frosts and snow is rare.

The 65th anniversary

media launch coincided with

the uprising of the islands 65

million years ago, and during

my time there it was weather

perfect.

Public roads on

Chatham Island are

constantly groomed, but

because of the swept shingle

construction they are still

a challenge for any car, yet

Holden’s Acadia, Equinox,

Trailblazer, Trax and even

Tourer easily coped with on

and off-road driving.

There was a cross-country

Motoring

FAVOURITE: Holden’s Acadia impresses on all

surfaces.

track that ordinarily I never

would have attempted in the

Tourer and Trax, yet both

with their elevated ground

clearance served to prove

they are worthy SUVs.

In total we covered over

200km on the island. I

spent most of day one in the

Acadia and Trax, the latter

four-up at one stage and

it was the surprise car of

the event, it felt controlled

on slippery road surfaces,

rear seat passengers agreed

there was space to spare

and even on the elevations,

power from the 1.4-litre

turbocharged engine seemed

appropriate.

Of course, the Acadia with

its powerful V6 engine weas

never going to disappoint,

its 231kW means power for

all applications and with its

supple suspension it quickly

became my favourite on the

island roads.

On day two I found

myself in the driver’s seat

of both the Trailblazer

and Equinox; the sevenseat

Trailblazer was easily

the most competent in all

situations, its Coloradobased

ladder chassis and

live rear axle is designed for

serious off-road conditions.

The Equinox also made an

impression. Its turbocharged

four-cylinder engine has

smooth power and its fully

independent suspension

provided a comfortable ride,

even over the rough sections

of road and track.

With its 235kW V6

engine, 142mm of ground

clearance and four-wheeldrive

capability, the

Commodore Calais Tourer

went most places the other

vehicles travelled, it was only

left behind as a precaution

when a couple of deep

ditches were presented. It can

most certainly be classified

as a sport utility vehicle

along with the fundamental

elements the modern station

wagon provides.

The Chatham Island

experience also coincided

with a realignment of

pricing across Holden’s SUV

range.

CHECKLIST FOR

SELLING YOUR HOME

MAKE SMALL FIXES

Inspect your home with a buyer’s

eyes, and correct the flaws that are

most egregious (if affordable) or

can be relatively easily fixed—from

repairing cracks in the walkways

to repainting dingy walls or oiling

creaky hinges.

SET A PRICE

A real estate agent will give you a

market analysis free of charge or

commitment.

Ask a few to get a broader picture

of the market, then ask to see

listings for properties similar to

yours that have sold in the past six

months. Check out comparable

listings yourself in the real estate

section of your newspaper or on

websites. Then decide whether

you want a quick, easy sale or the

highest possible price.

Oamaru

NEW LISTINGS

CLEAN & DECLUTTER

Weed out excess furniture,

knicknacks, and “stuff”—toss it,

donate it, give it away, sell it at a

yard sale, or put it into storage—

so the house seems more

spacious and buyers can imagine

themselves in it.

STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT

MAINTENANCE

From the moment you start

showing your house, keep the lawn

mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens

weeded, rooms spotless and

clutter-free.

READY YOUR HOME FOR OPEN

DAYS

Hide pocketable valuables, display

fresh flowers or bowls of fruit, bake

a batch of cookies for the homey

smell, open the drapes, keep pets

out of sight.

DECIDE WHETHER TO DO YOUR

OWN BUILDING INSPECTION

It may save you time, especially

with older homes, to identify—and

potentially solve—problems your

buyer’s inspection will discover

later.

Ideal as an extra

bedroom or office.

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 collected

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

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.”
