Gillian

gets her

• By Julia Evans

GILLIAN SHEARD’S dying

wish wasn’t a trip overseas, nor

was it a shopping spree or the

chance to meet Prince William.

It was an upgrade to a

pedestrian crossing on

Stanmore Rd in Richmond for

her community.

dying wish

Last year Ms Sheard collected

500 signatures from Richmond

residents who wanted the crossing

to be improved after she first

raised concerns with the city

council in 2016.

But city council staff came

back and said the crossing may

need to be removed.

“When I heard they were

going to get rid of it, I got really

annoyed. I said no, you’re not

going to do that,” she said.

“I’m a person that is determined,

I will go full hog and

make something happen.”

About seven months ago,

Ms Sheard was diagnosed with

cancer.

Flu, colds

start to

sweep

through

region

• By Sophie Cornish

FLU AND colds are ravaging

Canterbury but the worst could be

yet to come, health officials warn.

Latest figures released by the

Canterbury District Health Board

show there were 74 reported cases

of the flu last week in Canterbury

and 89 the week

before.

Last week, more

than 41 patients

in Christchurch

Hospital had the

flu.

Health board

chief executive

David Meates said

David

Meates

we should prepare for what could

be a very bad flu season.

“We know it’s bad in Australia,

and there’s a high chance that

it can come here too,” said Mr

Meates.

Canterbury Primary Health

Response Group spokesman Phil

Schroeder said a spike this early

in the season is “relatively uncharacteristic.”

“It is the first time that I have

seen a major spike in May for well

over 10 years really. We actually

had a significant rises of influenza

even in our later summer as well

as in autumn in Canterbury but it

didn’t look like it was amounting

to a lot.”

Have your wheelie bins got their tags?

CHECK YOUR wheelie bins

have been electronically tagged

because those without will soon

stop being emptied.

For the past three years Waste

Management Ltd has been

carrying out a stocktake of

wheelie bins for the city council.

As part of the stocktake, they

have been fitting the wheelie bins

allocated to each property with a

radio frequency identification tag

that emits a short range signal.

The signal can be picked up

by the kerbside collection trucks

and used to identify if a bin is

on a property where it does not

belong.

The RFID tags will help identify

lost or stolen bins and reduce

the cost of the kerbside collection

by ensuring only bins that people

are entitled to, and have paid for,

are being emptied.

“We are nearing the end of the

stocktake, which means that most

wheelie bins should have been

tagged by now. You can tell if your

bin has been tagged because it will

have a small reflective sticker on

the side,’’ city council solid waste

manager Ross Trotter said.

Lost in Bottle Lake Forest

Calls for

more

signage

• By Matt Slaughter

BOTTLE LAKE Forest Park is a

haven for walkers, runners and

cyclists. But, it’s not all fun and

games.

A lack of signage at the forest

is causing people to get lost and

has resulted in police call-outs.

The city

council says

there is enough

signage already

and people who

get lost will

eventually be

found.

Glenn

Livingstone

Tim Baker

“While there

is the occasional

lost park user,

the forest’s

popularity is such

that it is only a

temporary issue

until someone

comes along,”

city council

staff told the

Coastal-Burwood

Community

Board, which has asked for more

and better signage.

The community board was

also told: “Bottle Lake Forest

Park has sign panels at every

major entranceway, as well as

sign panels placed in strategic

locations throughout the forest;

eight in total. Maps of the forest

are available freely from the

information centre and Spencer

Park, as well as being available

for download off the web.”

But Burwood Ward city

councillor Glenn Livingstone

and board member Tim Baker

said this was not good enough.

Said Cr Livingstone: “I’ve been

there when police have turned

up looking for someone and

they are there quite regularly, so

with better signage, it could help

reduce police call-out time to

Bottle Lake.”

Police search and rescue

co-ordinator Sergeant Phil

Simmonds told The Star on

average there are between five

and 10 call-outs a year for people

who get lost in Bottle Lake

Forest Park.

They include young children

separated from their families

and lost walkers.

“People are usually located

quite quickly due to the size of

the park and also the fact there

is good cellphone coverage

YOU ARE WHERE? The lack

of signage at Bottle Lake

Forest Park has resulted

in people getting lost and

police call-outs.

in most of the forest. Police

encourage people heading out

into the forest to take note of the

available maps and track names,

and always go prepared,” he said.

Mr Baker said the signage

currently in place is too vague

and there is not enough.

He has been lost in the park on

his bike before.

“I for one have got lost in there

when it’s starting to get dark and

it wasn’t a nice feeling.”

Mr Baker said more small

signs, saying things like “Bottle

Lake Car Park 1km” are

necessary.

The community board has

asked city council staff to

discuss the cost and logistics of

installing more signage with it.

Fire near airport

not suspicious

A fire at a quarry shed near

Christchurch Airport yesterday

morning is no longer being

treated as suspicious. Fire

and Emergency New Zealand

fire investigator Jason Hobbs

confirmed the cause of the fire

was accidental and there is no

evidence it was deliberately lit.

Four crews fought the blaze at

on Savills Rd, near Pound Rd, at

4.40am.

Mother-of-two

dies in car crash

Tai Tarulata Dixon, 41, a

Selwyn mother-of-two and

midwife, was killed in a crash

on her way to work on Sunday.

Emergency services were called

to the crash at the intersection

of Sandy Knolls and West

Coast Rds, West Melton, about

9.50pm. The serious crash unit is

investigating.

Chaneys Rd on-ramp

closed from today

The Chaneys Rd on-ramp will

the road under Chaneys bridge

as part of the Northern Corridor

project. The on-ramp will be

reopened from early October

until mid-2020, when the

Northern Corridor is expected

to be complete.

Crashes lead to plan

to drop speed limits

More than 250 crashes in

Marshland, Spencerville and

Kainga over the last six years

have led to a proposal to drop

speed limits. Public feedback

has opened on a plan to lower

a number of 80km/h and

70km/h areas to 60km/h around

Marshland/Main North Rds

from south of QE II Drive

to north of the Waimakariri

Bridge, Spencerville Rd

and Kainga Rd, and west of

Marshland Rd. It comes as longterm

road safety data from the

New Zealand Transport Agency

suggests speed limits across New

Zealand are too high.

Current vaccine ‘a

very good match’

•From page 1

“In part that has caused a few

problems for patients in that

quite a lot of patients weren’t

going to get their flu vaccination

until June, anticipating

that the flu

will arrive in July,”

said Dr Schroeder.

In New Zealand,

flu-related illnesses

cause about 400

deaths a year and

account for 45 per

cent of sick days

each winter.

However, Canterbury

Employers’

Chamber of Commerce chief

executive Leeann Watson said

employers are not yet seeing

anything over and above business

as usual.

“Anecdotally we have seen a

few more people coming down

with colds and coughs, which

is pretty much expected at this

time of the year.

“What we have seen more

of over the past few years is

employers providing and encouraging

their team to get flu

vaccinations . . . at the end of the

day it is in everyone’s best interest

to keep well,” she said.

Latest figures from Australia

show there have been nearly

59,000 confirmed cases of the

flu so far this year, compared

to about 14,000 for the same

period last year and close to 100

deaths have been

recorded so far.

There was a

stark warning

in the weekend

when promising

20-year-old

league player

Zae Wallace died

from an infection

caused by the flu

on Saturday in

Auckland.

He had been in an induced

coma in Auckland City Hospital

since April and is one of three

others around the country who

have died from the flu so far this

year, including a 12-year-old and

a 62-year-old.

So far more than 106,000

people in Canterbury have been

vaccinated against the flu, about

19 per cent of the population.

Dr Schroeder said

“encouraging” results were

coming out of Australian studies

to show the current vaccine

is proving to be a “very good

match” for the strains of flu that

are being detected.

VICTORIOUS: Gillian Sheard pictured above at the crossing last year collected 500

signatures in a bid to get it upgraded.

New crossing brings tears of joy

•From page 1

It was not removed and

$15,000 was spent on its upgrade,

it was painted bright red.

“When Deon [Swiggs]

mentioned that it was going to

happen, it really excited me. But

actually see it,” she said.

“I sort of thought it was still

going to be black and white one

When she was taken from her

hospice care to see the crossing

for the first time, she cried with

happiness.

Locally, it is known as “Gillian’s

crossing” – but Ms Sheard

insists that she didn’t lobby for

herself.

“This is the people’s crossing,”

she said.

Her passion is the Richmond

community.

Ms Sheard said she has spent

the last few years advocating for

the area and working as a neighbourhood

support officer.

City councillor Deon Swiggs

helped lobby internally at the city

council for the crossing upgrade

after staff recommended it be

removed.

“I really wanted to get it done

A CHRISTCHURCH teen

being monitored after he was

caught plotting a 2017 terror

attack sparked a manhunt last

week after he walked out of his

supervised accommodation.

The 19-year-old, who cannot

be named for legal reasons,

said he felt frightened when he

escaped.

He walked to a city Burger

King, which reminded him of

when his mother used to take

him there when he was feeling

low, the district court was told

yesterday.

After withdrawing some cash,

he was planning to flag a taxi for

his mother’s house when he was

tracked down, the New Zealand

Herald reported.

Yesterday, he admitted

breaching his intensive

supervision order, which he was

sentenced to in February last year.

He was radicalised online and

had planned to ram a car into a

group of people in Christchurch

and then stab them. He told police

that he’d “done it for Allah”.

The teenager has been

regularly seeing a judge for

judicial monitoring sessions and

this year has already admitted

three breaches of the intensive

supervision order, including

two which came after he used

his mother’s phone to view

pornography.

After he was picked up last

week, he has been kept in prison.

The jail time has proved a

wake-up call, with him telling

Judge Stephen O’Driscoll

yesterday that he is “not built for

prison”.

In a heartfelt letter that he

penned from his jail cell, the teen

said how he’d felt threatened

when he walked out.

He hadn’t seen his mother for

three weeks and was trying to get

to her, where he felt safe, he said.

“Please forgive me, your

honour,” said the remorseful

youth.

He acknowledged that “recent

events in Christchurch” might

have some people worried about

him walking away.

But he assured the court that

he had promised never to return

to extremism. At an earlier court

news online at www.star.kiwi

Another chance for teen

hearing, he said how the March

15 mosque terror attack had

helped him reflect on his own

earlier extremist thinking.

Judge O’Driscoll last month

warned the teenager that if he

didn’t control his anger and

emotions, he faced being sent to

prison.

Judge O’Driscoll yesterday

granted him bail back to his

supervised accommodation, but

warned him he was running out

of chances.

The judge thanked him for

the impressive letter, opening

himself up to his thoughts,

feelings and emotions.

“I’m prepared to give you

another chance. I have given

you many chances and some

would say I have given you too

many.”

SERIAL SEX offender Lloyd

McIntosh was sent back to

prison after abusing staff at

his Christchurch supported

accommodation it can be

revealed.

McIntosh, one of New

Zealand’s worst sex offenders,

was jailed for three months in

April. He was released in the

middle of last of month and

is now back in his supported

accommodation.

McIntosh has served time for

offences including unlawful

sexual connection with a

23-month-old baby, raping a

six-year-old, and assaulting an

intellectually disabled woman.

He was released in 2005,

and became the first man in

the country to be subject to a

10-year Extended Supervision

Order, which will continue until

mid-2025.

As a condition of the order, he

is required to live at an address

approved by his probation

officer. He is not able to move

from that address without

prior written approval from his

probation officer.

Sex offender

sent back to jail

southern regional operations

director Chris O’Brien-Smith

said an ongoing deterioration

in McIntosh’s behaviour meant

he was warned that any further

abusive behaviour toward staff

would result in him being

discharged, meaning that he

would be without approved

accommodation.

In April, McIntosh was verbally

abusive toward staff again.

“He had disregarded the rules

of the service, which resulted

in him being discharged. He

therefore had no approved

accommodation and was

charged with breaching the

conditions of his order,” said Ms

O’Brien-Smith.

He was convicted and

sentenced to three months

imprisonment.

“In accordance with the

Parole Act 2002, prisoners who

are serving a sentence of less

than two years imprisonment

are automatically released after

serving half of their sentence.

The offender was released from

prison on May 17 and returned

to reside at approved supported

accommodation,” said Ms

O’Brien-Smith.

“This is democracy and anyone

It is a tricky ward as there was

WEAK, SOFT ground has seen

a bridge on the controversial

$240 million Northern Corridor

needing to be rebuilt.

The poor condition of the

ground has been an ongoing issue

with the project and although

the New Zealand Transport

Agency project team took it into

consideration, the QE II Drive

overbridge settled further than

expected.

The team has reviewed

options to fix this and the

best long-term option, which

provides the greatest surety, is to

deconstruct the walls, add new

piles and construct the walls

again,” NZTA portfolio manager

Colin MacKay said.

The very weak ground has

caused the abutment walls to

move horizontally slightly

more during construction than

the design allows. The option

of installing additional piles

and reconstructing the walls

provides the greatest long-term

resilience.”

Mr MacKay said the redo

would be covered within the

existing budget and it would still

be on-track to open mid-next

year.

The team has the equipment,

crew and materials already in

place and they expect to finish

the reconstruction of the bridge

abutments and walls within the

current programme and within

budget.”

The issue was discovered

early and so was a solution, he

said.

The design and construction

of the bridge is unchanged. This

additional work will stabilise the

ground beneath the bridge giving

it good, long-term resilience.”

Cruising behaviour

new term for boy racers

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

IF YOU are hooning around in

the western suburbs of the city,

you now won’t be labelled a “boy

racer” by community leaders.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board has

renamed the term “boy racing”

to “cruising behaviour” following

concerns the words were not

appropriate.

The topic emerged when

deputy chairwoman Helen

Broughton filed a motion calling

for increased enforcement

of police against boy racers on

Deans Ave.

Before the motion was

brought to the board the term

was changed to “cruising behaviour”

due to concerns from

People wanting to post letters

services have been offered from

the service centre since the

start of February, but now it

will become a full agent for NZ

Post. Upgrades will be made

to the centre over the next few

weeks to accommodate the

board chairman Mike Mora.

“If you are a girl for an example

driving a car, you are not a

boy racer are you? If you are a

25-year-old or a 38-year-old you

are not a boy racer,” he said.

His other concern was the city

council has a “no cruising bylaw”

in place, not a “boy racer”

bylaw.

Daniel Cossar, who organised

the notorious Aves Invasion

event over Easter, said the term

“boy racer” is not offensive at all

and people can call them what

they like.

World championship

event for drummer

• By Jess Gibson

ST ANDREW’S College student

Monte Stamm has drummed up a

spot on the world stage.

The 15-year-old snare drummer

will travel to Glasgow, Scotland, in

October to compete at the World

Solo Drumming Championships.

“I am feeling really excited about

the world championships. This

year will be my first time going to

the world championships for solo

drumming,” Monte said.

Monte was crowned Australian

young snare drummer of the year

in a competition held at The Scots

School Albury, New South Wales,

on May 25.

Because it was the first year of

the Australian young drummer

competition, Monte is the first to

hold the title.

The prize was a A$1500 travel

voucher, which Monte will put

towards his trip to Glasgow.

Monte also aims to buy a new

andante drum before his trip

which he will use to compete.

He began playing the drum at

five-years-old at The Scots School

Albury and moved to Christchurch

in 2017 to improve his drumming

skills at St Andrew’s College,

where he was offered a scholarship.

Beggars, homeless and drinking

A number of strategies

have been tried and

tested in the Linwood

Village area including

a liquor ban. But it has

been dealt yet another

blow with the closing of

SuperValue last week,

Julia Evans reports

THE SHELVES were nearly

empty and almost everything was

on special – including last year’s

Christmas paper.

Instead of beggars outside,

there was a steady stream of

people making their way in

and out of the Stanmore Rd

SuperValue to get a deal before it

closed.

Friday was the store’s last

trading day, it was shutting up for

good.

But it seemed owner Choy

Ming Lee wanted to leave quickly

and quietly, without making a

fuss.

He declined to be interviewed

by The Star.

Mr Lee had previously said

drinking and begging outside

the store was putting shoppers

off – they were too intimidated to

enter.

Last year the city council

approved a permanent liquor

ban for streets around the village

bound by Fitzgerald Ave, Armagh

St, England St and Hereford St,

including Doris Lusk Reserve.

But beggars and people

drinking outside the shops are

still the main reason Steve Joseph,

who owns Hibbards Butchery on

the opposite side of Stanmore Rd

said he is also leaving.

Once his tenancy was up, the

business would be the next store

to close – he’s already purchased

another butchery to move into

and will leave Linwood when his

lease runs out mid-2020.

However, Mr Joseph said it was

not quite as bad since the alcohol

ban had come in.

“But I’ve had customers

phone in and say they would

love to shop here but they won’t

anymore,” he said.

Police drive through and don’t

stop to move people on, he said.

“Losing the supermarket is a

big blow, but it’s just the area.”

Mr Joseph was waiting to see

how losing the supermarket

would impact the area, but he

predicted it would soon be empty

of any shoppers at all.

The street’s going to be a ghost

town,” he said.

“I can’t imagine how many

customers we are losing because

of all the drinking and smoking.”

One of his customers Lisa

Howard, who has lived in the area

for more than 20 years, said she

doesn’t go to the butchery often

any more because of the people

begging outside.

“I haven’t been down to the

butcher since people started

drinking outside . . . I love the

butcher,” she said.

The fact that the supermarket

was going would impact the

whole area, she said.

“It’s going to affect a lot of

elderly people and people who

live nearby, for a lot of people its

only a hop, skip and a jump,” Ms

Howard said.

“I don’t blame him, it’s not his

fault.”

However, she said the liquor

ban had made a different and

there were other initiatives, like

the tiny shops, a hub for smallscale

community businesses such

as bike repairs, and other work by

Te Whare Roimata, which were

helping.

“It’s hard to tell the difference

between beggars and the

homeless. If they’re genuinely

homeless, I would like to see

them get a home,” she said.

Armagh St resident Adam Calje

said SuperValue closing was a

“major loss” for the area.

“It’s angered me that the

beggars have done this. I’ve got

half a dozen neighbours I know

that won’t come down to these

shops at all,” he said.

The whole area is dying.”

Mr Calje said the SuperValue

side of the Avon River, compared

“I don’t understand why they

don’t have this problem on the

other side of the river,” he said.

“I resent the fact I’m going to

have to walk further to go to the

supermarket.”

Mr Calje has witnessed major

fights, drinking, drug use and

been approached by women

offering sexual favours in broad

daylight.

When The Star visited last

week, a man placed his open

can of bourbon on top of the

Kiwibank ATM before he went

and urinated up against the fence.

It was 3pm.

Mr Calje said he would drive

around the block to go into the

supermarket through the back

door so he didn’t have to walk

past the beggars.

“But the neighbourhood has

improved in some ways,” he said.

The alcohol ban had helped, but

not enough.

“Before the earthquake, it used

to be quite a vibrant shopping

area,” Mr Calje said.

Now he’s made it his mission to

bring attention to the issues and

get some action.


damage village

“I’ve spoken to police, Deon

[Swiggs] and now I’ve got an

appointment with Duncan Webb,”

he said.

“If I die trying, I’m going to

help.”

Mr Calje said there was a

distinct police presence in the

area a while ago, but it had

dropped off as time went on.

Superintendent Lane Todd

said resources had been

diverted since the March 15 terror

attack.

“We are aware of concerns and

have been in touch with local

businesses to offer reassurance.

The Neighbourhood Policing

Team will be resuming duties in

Linwood Village in the coming

weeks,” he said.

“Police strongly encourage

anyone who feels threatened

or unsafe due to anti-social

behaviour to notify police

immediately, so we can respond

as appropriate. We want the

public to be safe, and feel safe.’’

Improving the area has been

on the radar of Central Ward city

councillor Deon Swiggs since he

was elected in 2016.

“It’s a local supermarket and

a huge loss of amenity for local

residents,” he said.

“But there’s a lot of potential in

the area, just a lot of deep-seated

social issues to overcome.”

Cr Swiggs lobbied hard for the

alcohol ban – but said there was

still a lot more to be done and in

spite of the supermarket leaving,

hope was not lost.

“We do need to do more. I

think the area needs a special

regeneration. The success of the

central city is dependent on the

suburbs around it,” he said.

However, Cr Swiggs said it was

more than just drinking, there

were mental health issues.

A city council spokesperson

said about 60 per cent of the area’s

commercial buildings were lost in

the earthquake.

There were concerns over

the recent loss of the supermarket.

“Anchors play an important

role in centres, and the loss of an

anchor such as a supermarket

may impact the vibrancy of a

centre.”

However, work is ongoing in

the area’s redevelopment.

The Linwood Village Master

Plan was developed with the

community and adopted in

August 2012 to support the

recovery of the commercial

WATER AND the state of

roads are the two major sources

of discontent with the city’s

residents.

The point of contact survey

and the general service satisfaction

survey are two of the

measures the city council uses

to gauge its performance and to

identify areas for

improvement.

The condition of

roads and footpaths

and the quality of

the water remain a

source of discontent

for people – 27 per

cent of people were

happy with the state

of the roads and 37

per cent with water

quality.

The findings of these surveys

are valuable because they highlight

the areas where residents

feel we need to do better,’’ chief

executive Karleen Edwards said.

“For example, it is clear from

the point of contact survey

results that residents want better

maintenance and upkeep of our

community parks, wharves and

jetties, and cemeteries. That is

something elected members

will be able to take into account

when they meet over the next

few weeks to finalise the city

council’s budget and work

programme for the next 12

months.”

Dr Edwards said the survey

findings also show residents

don’t fully understand city

council decision-making

processes or how they can get

involved.

“That is something we need to

address,” she said.

“We need to make sure we are

communicating effectively with

all sectors of our community

and that everyone feels they can

engage with us on the issues

they care about,’’ Dr Edwards

says.

The general service satisfaction

Residents have

of those surveyed are generally

satisfied with the council’s performance

– up from 55 per cent

“One of the most pleasing

findings of the point of

contact survey is that 86 per

cent of those who were asked

about their interactions with

city council staff said

they found them to be

friendly, approachable

and helpful,” Dr Edwards

said.

“We have put a lot

of focus on improving

our customer service

and ensuring that we

put the needs of our

Karleen residents first so I’m very

Edwards pleased with this result,

although there is still

room for improvement.”

In the general service satisfaction

survey roading remains the

most commonly cited area for

improvement, followed by water

supply.

“We know the condition of

our roads and footpaths remains

an issue and we are spending

an unprecedented amount of

money to try and improve the

situation,’’ Dr Edwards said.

“Before the earthquakes we

spent about $70 million a year,

in today’s dollars, on maintaining,

renewing and upgrading

the city’s roads and footpaths. In

this current year we are spending

$86 million.”

She said it was also investing

in the water supply.

“Unfortunately we have had to

chlorinate the water while that

work is done. As a result we have

seen satisfaction with the quality

of our water drop from 79 per

cent last year to 37 per cent,” she

said.

“By the end of May about

90 per cent of Christchurch’s

water supply is expected to be

chlorine-free and we are working

to remove the chlorine from

the remaining water supply as

quickly as possible.”

OUR PEOPLE – AXEL WILKE

The Axel that keeps Chch moving

FUTURE: Axel Wilke became a transport engineer to

save himself from going “crazy” working at his parents

supermarket in Germany. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

With a name like Axel Wilke, it was only natural the transport consultant’s career would

involve cars, bikes, buses, scooters and skateboards. He speaks to Julia Evans about his

midlife crisis at 24-years-old and the time he royally messed up an intersection

How did you get into the

transport field?

I had my midlife crisis when

I was 24. What happened to

me, I was running my parents

supermarket and had been

doing that for a few years and I

was just absolutely bored. I was

not doing anything with my

brain and I was so frustrated.

It was actually quite funny. We

belonged to a chain, half of the

people running supermarkets

were owner/operators, and every

couple of weeks, 300 of us from

the northern region would come

together and spend an afternoon

together. What I wasn’t quite

sure about was whether you had

to be crazy in order to do this

job long-term or whether doing

this job long-term turned you

crazy. Either way, I didn’t want to

find out. So what I did with my

midlife crisis is I decided I needed

to study something and so one

of my really core interests was

sustainable transport. I was mad

in that area, so I thought, why

don’t I just study that? I asked

around and I was told you have

to become a civil engineer for

that. I thought how strange, but

never mind, so I became a civil

engineer. I was halfway through

my degree when my girlfriend

said she was going to move back

to New Zealand. She was a Kiwi.

She’s not in the picture any longer.

Anyway I was halfway through

my degree and I visited her here

over Christmas and checked out

the universities. At Canterbury,

they said I could finish my degree

here, not a problem. I graduated

from Canterbury in 1997. A few

years later I went back and did my

masters at Canterbury.

But you never finished your

PhD?

When I finished my masters,

my lecturer tried really hard to

talk me into carrying on with

a PhD and I said “yeah, nah.”

After uni I started my first job at

Christchurch City Council and I

was there for eight years. While I

was doing my masters, I was parttime

at the city council still and

went back full-time afterwards.

I absolutely loved my job and

I couldn’t see taking another

three or four years out to study

something full-time. I thought

there’s more fun to be had by

actually getting my hands dirty

and doing stuff.

Did your love of transport

start as a child?

In terms of what I played with

as a kid, it was Lego. I loved going

to my grandparents. They had a

bed seat, you put the seat up and

underneath there was a big box

of Lego. I played with it for hours,

that was the engineer in me. But I

guess I’ve been into cycling since

I started just getting from A to

B when I was five like any kid. I

biked to school 2.5km when I was

in primary school.

Where in Germany are you

from?

I’m from the north-west – the

biggest big city is Hanover. That’s

where I was actually living for a

few years, once as a kid and once

as a young adult. The rest of the

time I was living in a tiny village

of less than 3000 people called

Exter.

So you came to Christchurch

following love?

Yes, then I fell in love with

Christchurch. I ditched my

girlfriend – that didn’t really last

that long. Never mind, but the

other love has endured. I came

here and that was it. All of the

rest of my family lives nicely

in Germany, just in one spot

actually. All close together.

But you’re married now?

I am. She’s a Kiwi. How we met

is a funny story all right. We went

tramping in about 1999/2000

and tramped around Mt Fyffe in

Kaikoura. •Turn to page 18

OUR PEOPLE

Planning out the city’s transport system

•From page 16

We spent the whole weekend

together. There were five of us

on that tramp and that was the

only time I had met Julie. Then

10 years later, we met again. That

is how you meet these days, Find

Someone, an internet date. It was

before we got together that Julie

showed her best friend my photo

and she said, oh, it’s Axel. Julie

and her best friend had done a

lot of tramping together over the

years. That photo was handed on

to another of her friends and she

said Julie, Axel was on one of our

tramps. We said no, we would

remember each other, wouldn’t

we? We could honestly not

remember each other. My wife’s

recollection of that particular

tramp is that she was tramping

with four other women. But then

the friend said I’ve got photos

of that tramp and there we were

sitting next to each other around

the bonfire. We have absolutely

no recollection of one another.

Chance really stuffed that one up.

Tell me a little bit about

your work, what do you do

day-to-day?

I do a variety of things. I do

safety audits, I design traffic

lights, I do a lot of planning in

the cycling space, I do a lot of

design work. One of the things

I really enjoyed, I did this really

early on in my career. Going

ADVOCACY: Axel Wilke helped redesign the plan to

change Cranford St.

through university I thought,

no wonder nobody knows

what to do because you simply

don’t learn it. I had one lecture,

45min that covered how you

design for pedestrians, how you

design street lights and how you

accommodate cycling. The total

of my undergrad for cycling

was 15min. I thought holy s**t.

I gathered a few like-minded

people around me and said why

don’t we get some professional

training up-and-running and we

did. We did it in a very deliberate

way that made this a very slow

process, it took us 18 months to

talk some central Government

agencies into it. We wanted

their money and we didn’t want

their money because we needed

funding to do this, we could’ve

already done it in our own time,

in my case the Christchurch City

Council was very supportive.

We wanted money from central

Government to have skin in the

game. So we’ve been training

since 2003 and have helped 1300

engineers and planners through

professional training. This is

outstandingly influential. We

have turned New Zealand around

from not knowing anything to

it being a lot better. You can see

it up and down the country, it’s

much better. It really didn’t take

long for people to pick it up and

know what to do. It’s fantastic.

Out of that, going back to my day

job, our company ViaStrada, we

do a lot of guideline development

work, engineering and design

development for the Government

and the New Zealand Transport

Agency mostly, which everyone

follows in the country. That

comes out of having this idea

back in 2001, let’s get some

professional training going.

Have you had any funny

transport blunders? What’s

the worst designed road in

Christchurch?

The worst designed piece

of road we’re about to have is

Cranford St, immediately north

of Innes Rd. It is absolutely

astonishing. The plans are for a

minimum width facility, next to

a minimum width facility, next

to a minimum width facility

and projected traffic volumes of

more than 40,000 vehicles a day.

Unbelievable. My colleague and

I once had a really massive stuff

up. It wasn’t a city intersection.

When a state highway goes

through the city, the NZTA or

back then it was probably still

Transit New Zealand – they are

the road patrolling authority –

they had an intersection where

they changed the form of control

from roundabout to traffic

lights. They ran the plan by the

city council for sign-off and the

transport planners thought this

doesn’t look quite right, so they

gave it to us designers to have a

look at. A colleague of mine and

I, we looked over it. What we did

is we put these little post-it notes,

tiny ones, whenever we found

something wrong with the design

on the big A1 plan and said what

was wrong with it. When we

finished, you couldn’t see the

design any longer, the whole plan

was covered. The guys made the

decision rather than send it back

to the consultants, why don’t we

design it ourselves. We designed

it with the city’s feedback and

said here was a design that will

work. Transit said thank you

very much, it didn’t cost them

a cent, ratepayers paid for it. So

they built that thing, it opened

and there was a crash once a day.

We were absolutely horrified.

What was happening was the

intersection included this huge,

sweeping slip lane. Whereby

when people turned left there, the

turn was such a large radius that

many cars’ indicators wouldn’t

reset. •Turn to page 21

Bodyfix Support MenS HealtH

At Bodyfix we create an

experience for everyone

who uses the gym and one

that appeals to all ages.

With a relaxed, friendly vibe and a strong community

focus, the BodyFix team take a fresh approach to

health and fitness.

This is a welcoming, supportive place to work out, no

matter how fit or unfit you feel you are.

We encourage people to take a healthy approach to

feeling fit, healthy and happy. It’s not just about weight

loss – it comes from within.

This month our focus is around Men’s Health Month.

Our unique gym specialises in group exercise classes,

and we have a range of expert trainers who offer a

wealth of industry experience.

We have a really balanced team, who are all highly

knowledgeable in their own set of niche markets.

Designed to appeal to all ages, the gym is fully

equipped with the most up-to-date equipment, and

consistently maintains the highest standards of

customer service.

BodyFix has supported a range of charities over

the years by raising money through different events

however Exercising is also about mental health – a clear

mind is a remedy for most things; which is why we focus

on supporting mental health charities and especially

this month with the focus on Mens Health.

Over the month we will be focussing on different

aspects of Mens Health. Encouraging all men to get a

check up and annual ones, giving out advice on creating

new habits but most of all encouaring men to start

talking #menstarttalking and just to do somethingfor

themselves to be a little bit healthier.

Everything we do is directly to help improve the health

of everyone and we want to make a difference.

There are plenty of men who still don’t look after

themselves and some of the changes can be pretty

simple. We can help improve the lives and the lives of

those closes to us by educating and giving them the

tools and the space to help.

We all know that without our health we are no good

to anyone. Men need help to encourage them to lead a

long, healthier and happier life.

Life is tough and we want to encourage men to talk

about things more. If we can influence just 1 male to

start then hoping we can change the world bit by bit.

Men in NZ often have a tendancy to wait until things

become to much to handle before they ask for help.

As a club we are hugely passionate about making

a diference – we are more than just a gym.

Bid to make a difference at ECan

•From page 18

Just beyond the intersection

you would go over a railway line

and it was a bit bumpy so people

would slow down a little bit.

Immediately after the railway

line, there was a side street to the

left. At the time the rule was you

turn left and you give way to the

oncoming opposing right-tuners.

So there were people waiting to

turn right, people come along,

slow down for the railway line,

have their indicators going left

and they would carry on straight

through. Bang, they would be hit

by the right-turner – one a day.

We thought what did we do, how

do we fix this. We fixed it with

paint. We had a brainstorming

session and put some paint on the

ground after a week or so. We put

the people going straight right

hard against the flush median

so it was absolutely crystal clear,

they were going straight through.

That fixed it. That’s my biggest

professional stuff up we fixed

with $300 of paint. We were

sweating about it.

What intersection was it?

I’m too scared to say it.

Have you done much

travelling?

I have, we had a good time

in Vietnam. My mum used to

come over reasonably regularly.

She’s getting older, why don’t

the four of us meet half way

FAMILY FUN: Axel Wilke has travelled extensively around Vietnam with his mother.

and spend some time together.

That ended up being Vietnam.

We were spending two weeks

or so basically all our stuff in a

backpack and travelling by bus

and train from city to city to park

up somewhere and organise a

place to stay for a few days. It’s

really, really lovely when the

Vietnamese figure out that you’re

travelling with parents.

Any interesting hobbies?

I love mountain biking, to

be honest. The Port Hills is just

marvellous. We are blessed. One

thing that I really love about the

Adventure Park is you can go in

there and they don’t charge you

as long as you get yourself up the

hill with your own steam. I think

that’s a really, really nice gesture.

I don’t have a problem paying for

lift passes, but I’ve been biking

up Worsleys since 1998. Then

the Adventure Park opens so

many years later, why would I

stop going up Worsleys? It’s what

keeps me slim and fit.

Any plans for your next career

move?

One little big life event coming

up on October 12 – the local

body elections – I’m going

to stand for Environment

Canterbury as an independent. I

haven’t really been secret about

it, I’m telling everyone who

wants to hear, but I just haven’t

made a public announcement.

ECan sort public transport,

that’s their role in the transport

space and I am so frustrated

watching what’s happening or

what’s not happening. I know

how to sort this out and it really

needs a fundamental re-think

about how the regional council

goes about providing public

transport services. I have made

submissions and they certainly

all know me and know of my

opinions, but they don’t have the

in-house capability and capacity

to turn things around. For the

last five years, our passenger

numbers are going down. Since

2014, the central city is filling up

again – 35,000 new jobs and our

patronage numbers are going

down. It’s absolutely tragic.

Speed limit overhaul

• By Louis Day and

Julia Evans

SUMNER AND Woolston

speed limits could be set for a

complete overhaul.

The city council is proposing

various changes to the speed

limits across Sumner and

Woolston Village.

Sumner’s

plan proposes

the speed limit

be reduced

in the wider

residential

area from

50km/h to

Sara

Templeton

40km/h as

well as a drop

to 30km/h at

the entrance

to Sumner, through the

township and along the

Esplanade.

Heathcote Ward city

councillor Sara Templeton saw

the change as necessary.

“I know that many people

have concerns about the large

trucks going back through the

town on their way to Lyttelton

so I think it will be well

supported. There have also been

some issues with boy racers in

the area,” she said.

Cr Templeton thought a

reduction in the speed limit

would benefit local businesses.

“When you have slower speeds

LOWER: The speed limit on Ferry Rd may be dropped to

30km/h.

it makes it easier for people to

have a look at the shops when

they go past and are more likely

to walk around when it is a

pedestrian safe space.”

The speed limit in the

Woolston Village precinct may

also be lowered.

Consultation is set to begin

on lowering speed along Ferry

Rd from Portman St to nearly

Palinurus Rd to 30km/h.

Part of St Johns St, Maronan

St, Oak St, Heathcote St,

Portman St and Glenroy

St would also be dropped

to 40km/h as part of the

proposal.

Public feedback on the plans

will open on June 17.

The moves follows previous

consultation on the Sumner

and Ferry Rd master plans,

which approved implementing a

12-month trial.

The Woolston area’s master

plan was approved in 2014 and

currently streetscape upgrades

for the village are in the design

phase.

It features wider footpaths and

cycle lanes, upgraded crossings

and street lighting.

A laneway linking Ferry Rd

to the public car park and preschool

behind the library will be

upgraded for use by pedestrians

and cyclists under the library

development.

New and upgraded bus

stops and shelters will also be

introduced.

New Lyttelton tug

soon to enter service

THE LYTTELTON Port

Company’s new tug Piaka arrived

on Friday.

Piaka was designed by

Canadian tug experts Robert

Allan and built in Singapore by

ASL Shipyard, and will replace

harbour tug Purau, which has

been in service since 1986.

Over the past month

she has sailed from

Singapore to Lyttelton

and was greeted at the headlands

of Lyttelton Harbour by LPC

tugs Purau and Blackadder, and

pilot launch Awaroa.

LPC chief executive Peter Davie

said the new tug will offer improved

power and manoeuvrability.

“It will increase our handling

capability for the larger vessels

that are expected to call at

Lyttelton following the recent

upgrade of the navigation

channel. The future of shipping

is seeing a trend towards

NEW

ARRIVAL:

significantly larger vessels,” he said.

The modern control systems

and winch set-up of the Piaka are

similar to LPC’s tug Blackadder,

further modernising LPC’s harbour

tug fleet,” says Mr Davie.

Piaka is the Māori name for

Adderley Head, and the tug

is painted in Canterbury colours.

Piaka has 75T bollard pull,

significantly more than the Purau.

Mr Davie said it was fantastic

to have Piaka arrive safely at Lyttelton.

“It is another vital part of our

development at LPC, ensuring we

can cater for the growth in container

volume moving through

Lyttelton, and continue to be the

gateway for the goods that keep

our region moving.”

Piaka will undergo testing and

training sessions with her new

crew over the next few weeks,

before being formally launched

and named.

I WAS reading through some

emails over the weekend and

came across a reminder that

all our wheelie bins needed

to be tagged as part of the

major stocktake that has been

undertaken over the past two

years, with the addition of radio

frequency IDs.

The consequences of not

being tagged is that the rubbish

bin won’t be emptied. So I made

a reminder to myself to double

check if there was a

small reflective sticker on the

side.

I write this on rubbish

collection day as I take the bins

out, discovering that only one

of the three had the reflective

sticker that confirms it is

tagged.

So I have been on-line to

the city council website and

submitted a request to have this

done.

It only took a minute to do

(although you do need the bin

number(s), which is printed on

the side of the bin, so make a

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

Stocktake to track

475,000 wheelie bins

note of it before you go on line –

I just took a photo on my phone).

You can also phone the city

council contact centre 941 8999

and a customer services team

member can fill the form in for

you – remember you will need

the bin number.

The tagging system is an

important way for the kerbside

collection trucks to identify if

a bin is on a property where it

does not belong. This will help

identify lost or stolen bins and

reduce the cost of the kerbside

collection.

There are over 475,000 bins

in the collection service – so it’s

possible that quite a few have

been missed. I’m hoping my bin

will be emptied today, but if not

at least it will be tagged for next

time.

Dalziel a question, email

Tantrum to the power of 10

I GOT TWO pretty decent

sleep-ins this week.

I mean I had to travel to

Australia to get them, and one of

those included being a bit worse

for wear. Still, it was good to get

some extra shut-eye.

However, poor Laura got stuck

inside over the weekend while

I was away thanks to the nasty

weather. If you remember back

to early April when I was away in

Hamilton she copped the same.

It must be a curse or something.

My flight didn’t get in until 1am

on Tuesday morning, so I only

ended up getting about four hours

sleep before a little smiling face

was pressed close to mine to get

me up.

I was stoked, I had missed

Vittoria heaps while I was away.

While I was gone she’s mastered

her little push-car and worked

out how to turn up the tantrum

power to 10.

With average weather striking

again on Tuesday, riding her little

car up and down the drive wasn’t

a full-day option.

Laura was on leave so the

three of us packed up the car and

headed to Lyttelton for a family

lunch out.

Bubs behaved like an angel the

whole time.

After eating we went out onto

a deck area to see the view of

the port when Vittoria spotted

an excellent way to show off her

tantrum skills – some slippery

looking stairs that had toddler

head injury written all over

them.

Not letting her go down

those was cause for a full-blown

meltdown at me, crying and

screaming right beside some

strangers enjoying a coffee catchup.

Good thing I’ve developed

a healthy level of not getting

stressed about what bystanders

think.

When I tried to give her a

cuddle to calm her down, she ran

away for a cuddle from

mum instead and her stroppy

attitude lasted all the way back to

the car.

Still, it was nice to see Vittoria

turn to Laura for a change.

I’m sure, in spite of the tears

and noise, that Laura would have

appreciated that too.

GARDENING

Ornamental kale for colour through winter

• By Henri Ham

news online at www.star.kiwi

FLOWER GARDENS tend to

look a little dull at this time of the

year.

But there are some plants that

thrive once your summer annuals

pass their best. Ornamental kale

– an annual grown for its pretty

waved leaves and bright winter

colours – is the perfect plant to

insert some liveliness into your

garden right now.

Ornamental kale grows in

large, low rosettes, like prizes in

your garden. It’s a compact plant

that closely resembles a cabbage.

While you can eat it, it’s mostly

grown for its colourful leaves. But

if you’re really keen on tasting it,

you’ll find ornamental kale has a

very bitter taste.

What I like about this

type of kale is that it’s bold,

striking and, (best of all)

requires little care in your garden.

And, once established this fun

kale can deliver a good few

months of colour to your winter

garden.

There are a variety of

ornamental kales around. Most

have symmetrical green outer

leaves and purple rosey or creamy

white centres. Some have wider

cabbage-like leaves, others tight

frilly edges – similar to endive

lettuce.

The most popular type is

THE WINTER blues in our

house are not the sort to get

you down.

To be precise, they’re blue

violas, light blue lobelias,

lavender primulas and moody

blues pansies. And they’re all

excellent ways to inject some

bright colour into your winter

garden.

If your garden is looking a

little bland after your summer

flowers have dried up, now is

the time to plant these winter

annuals. And if you’re not

feeling so ‘blue’, many of these

pretty flowers also come in

shades of pinks, purples, whites

and yellows as well.

For the sunnier areas of your

garden, look to antirrhinum

pigeon kale. It comes in both

purple and white varieties

and has a true rosette

appearance.

Ideal for garden pots,

borders and edging, you

might have seen ornamental

kale before in large beds of town

gardens or in the middle of traffic

islands.

dwarf, viscaria, nemesia and lobelia

as good starting points for

adding colour. They suit borders,

mass planting or simply

planted in between your roses.

And for those slightly shadier

spots, polyanthus, primulas

and cineraria dwarf can all help

add some bursts of colour.

But if you’re not sure where

to start, violas are a staple of any

winter garden. You’ll find these

cute little flowers in shades of

oranges to yellow, dark blues,

burgundy and white.

If you’re wanting something

new, try sorbet blue viola. It’s

a cute little white and violet

coloured flower, still featuring

the tiny yellow face that many

violas often have.

When you plant ornamental

kale seedlings on mass (about

20cm apart) they develop a lovely

packed-in feel – really carpeting

a garden.

Once you’ve got your seedlings,

find a sunny well-drained spot in

your garden.

Dig holes around 5cm deep,

20cm apart and gently place the

CONTRAST: White and

violet viola.

Plant your viola seedlings

10cm apart, in full sun with

well-drained soil. They’ll flower

from right now until spring,

seedlings in. Lightly massage the

root systems to loosen them

up.

If you’re not sure what to plant

alongside your kale, ornamental

grasses (carex) are an ideal easycare

companion.

The more sun your kale gets,

the brighter colours you’ll be

rewarded with.

Violas are a cold weather staple – plant now

growing to around 15cm high.

Give them a good initial watering

and feed of general fertiliser.

Once they’ve got going, they

won’t need much watering

through the cooler months – the

perk of a winter garden.

In around four to six weeks,

you’ll start to see a splash of

colour pop up. Just remember

to pick off the dead heads to

encourage them to flower, and

you’ll get to enjoy your colourful

winter garden for many

months ahead.

And, if you’re a hanging

basket enthusiast, combine your

violas with some cascading

lobelia and hang it near

your front door to add some

welcoming colour to your home.

But don’t think about planting

them out too early.

Ornamental kale is a true

winter plant that needs the cooler

night temperatures to thrive.

Once planted, give an initial

feed of liquid fertiliser. But after

this, just stick to water.

Too much fertiliser can cause

the plant to grow an elongated

stem under the rosette, which will

detract from its pretty, compact

appearance.

In around six weeks you’ll start

to see colourful kale developing

in your garden beds.

Happy gardening.

Colorado makes easy

work of cross trainer

YOU’D THINK after

writing about cars for

30 years there would be

few things in a motor

vehicle that would get the

better of me in terms of

technology.

There’s nothing more

embarrassing than having

to go back to a dealership

admitting defeat and asking

how something works.

Well, that happened to

me with Holden’s latest Z71

Colorado, quite simply I

couldn’t get the deck cover

off. The friendly sales

staff at Blackwells quickly

showed me how it was

done, and I was on my way.

I was quite anxious to

have access to the deck area

as my wife’s cross trainer

needed workshop repair,

and transporting it on the

back of a ute was the most

sensible option. I also used

it to take a load of green

waste to the recycling

centre.

Quite obviously, these

tasks were no match for

the Colorado’s 1000kg load

capacity, but they did serve

to prove how adaptable the

modern ute has become,

and if you add in a 3500kg

tow rating the Colorado is

right up there in terms of

load carrying performance.

However, as much as it

is a standout in terms of

practicality, the Z71 fourwheel-drive

double cab is

aimed more towards the

recreational buyer, it has

decals, stripes, body kit and

a high level of specification,

full leather trim is some

indication as to how it sits

in the market.

There are also many

unseen specification

elements, the Colorado

is state of the art in terms

of electronic inclusions

for safety, while comfort

and convenience items are

generous. It is very modern

in the cockpit, while

seating comfort for five is

guaranteed.

Under the bonnet

sits a 2.8-litre, fourcylinder

twin-camshaft

turbocharged diesel engine.

It is rated by Holden at

147kW, and with 500Nm

of torque available at

just 2000rpm it is a

powerhouse, easily on a par

with all of its competitors.

Drive is harnessed

through a six-speed

automatic transmission.

A manual is available,

but it won’t compete with

the auto in terms of sales

figures. Bear in mind, too,

the manual has a lower

engine torque figure of

440Nm.

Shifts in the auto are

HOLDEN COLORADO Z71: Versatile, go-anywhere

double cab ute.

smooth, and the gearing

is such that it provides

relaxed motoring at

highway speed, along with

the ratios needed for slow

speed, off-the-seal travel.

Backing up that theory

is the fitment of a true

low ratio transfer box, it is

manipulated electronically

by a console-mounted

dial switch at the driver’s

command.

• Price – Holden

Colorado Z71,

$66,900

• Dimensions –

Length, 5361mm;

width, 1872mm;

height, 1800mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2776cc, 147kW,

500Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11sec

• Fuel usage –

8.7l/100km

Because I was travelling

alone I didn’t take the

Z71 off-road, instead, I

spent most of my time

with the Z71 at highway

speed and my regular

commute. In those

conditions it seems more

car-like than ute-like.

Sure, at well over 5m

there is a lot of bulk to

manoeuvre in close confine

situations, but it’s no worse

than any other vehicle of

its type. If you take into

account the numbers that

are being sold, buyers quite

obviously don’t rate that as

a challenge.

On the open road, the

engine turns over slowly

at 1550rpm at 100km/h

in top gear. At that speed

Motoring

it returns a 6.2-litre

per 100km (46mpg)

instantaneous fuel usage

figure and that accounted

for a 9.4l/100km (30mpg)

average figure during my

time with the ute.

That correlates well

with the 8.7l/100km

(32mpg) figure Holden

claims for a combined cycle

average.

Road and wind noise are

both kept to a minimum,

and the Colorado as a

series imparts a smooth

ride. Of course, it is better

with a bit of weight in the

back, but the reality is the

load bearing suspension

is relatively absorbent

and the cab doesn’t jiggle

unnecessarily on uneven

surfaces.

That’s an area where

local research and

development pays

dividends. Holden

Australia places a huge

emphasis on developing

vehicles for down

under conditions, and

it certainly shows in

Colorado. The ride is

acceptable, while and the

entire in-cabin experience

is comfortable.

I guess it would need to

be welcoming. The Z71

listing at $66,990 is a bit

of an outlay, but if you get

to the dealership before

the end of June you will

be in line for a tempting

Feildays bargain, and with

the amount of on-board kit

it would be a very worthy

purchase.

Even though the

Z71’s flashy bits disguise

its traditional ute look,

make no mistake, the Z71

is still the quintessential

Colorado which has carved

out a huge reputation as

a tough, go-anywhere

worker.


The Star Thursday June 6 2019

Greg Somerville was a

staple in the Crusaders’

front row for a decade.

But after his playing days,

he had to decide what

his next move would

be. Gordon Findlater

talks to him about going

into business after a

successful rugby career

LAST YEAR Greg Somerville

purchased Think Water

Marlborough – an irrigation

company established in 1996 at

the start of the grape planting

boom.

But outside of work, the

former tight head prop can be

found offering up scrummaging

tips at local rugby clubs. And

with many of his customers

being wineries, he has also

become partial to the odd bottle

of Marlborough sauvignon

blanc, even though he says he is

still very much a beer man.

“I’ve got a mate that owns a

craft brewery up in Auckland.

That’s one of my biggest things

I miss the most from up there

was the consistent flow of craft

beer I could get from him,” said

Somerville.

The 41-year-old racked up

115 appearances and nine tries

for the Crusaders between 1999

and 2008, winning Super Rugby

titles in 1999, 2000, 2002, 2005,

2006 and 2008. He also earned

66 caps for the All Blacks.

Somerville grew up on a farm

near Wairoa, Hawkes Bay, and

got his first taste of rugby at

Taiho Primary School. He went

on to play first XV rugby for

Napier Boys’ High School.

Following school, Somerville

spent two years at Smedley

Station – a cadet training farm

which provides hands-on

agricultural skills for young

farmers. A pathway to the

Crusaders then popped up in his

home province.

“At the time, Wayne Smith

was the (chief executive) of

Hawkes Bay rugby. I played

some age group rugby there and

then Smithy went back down to

Christchurch and that’s when

Canterbury started to talk to me

about going down there,” said

Somerville.

He relocated to Christchurch

in 1998 and was one of the

first players to come out of the

Canterbury academy, which was

being run by Steve Hansen in its

early days.

“I wanted to go to Lincoln

to do a diploma in farm

management, so that whole

package tied in quite well,” he

said.

Somerville also played club

rugby for Lincoln University,

but says they were not as strong

as the current team which have

won the last four metro rugby

titles.

“We dominated the bottom

of the table when I was there.

Awesome club, but yeah, we

weren’t as successful as they are

now,” said Somerville.

Before becoming a Crusaders

regular, he spent a year living

in a flat with a group of Lincoln

students. He then moved

into a flat with his Crusaders

teammate Ben Hurst.

“As you can imagine, I was

trying to become a professional

rugby player and learning what

that was all about with sleep

patterns and nutrition and also

living student life . . . there was

a bit of a transition from being

a varsity student to being a

responsible professional,” said

Somerville.

He made what was at the time

a shock debut for Canterbury

in their 1998 NPC semi-final

loss to Waikato. Somerville and

Dave Hewett were given their

first starts for Canterbury in the

match. However, they looked

to catch Waikato off-guard by

keeping their selection secret

until the team sheets were

handed out just before kick-off.

Somerville’s new venture

NEW VENTURE: Greg Somerville

took over irrigation company, Think

Water Marlborough, last year.

•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

“We flew up under different

names and when we got into the

airport, we were whipped into

the Koru Lounge so no reporters

could see . . . Shag [Steve

Hansen] said not to tell anyone,

so I didn’t even tell mum or dad.

The morning of the game, he

asked if my parents were coming

to watch and I said no, because

you told me not to tell anyone

. . . he had a laugh and told me I

was an idiot,” said Somerville.

“We ran out and even the

commentators were thinking

who the heck is this?”

The following year, Somerville

made his Crusaders debut in

their opening match of the 1999

season against the Chiefs. He

went on to play all 13 games

that year, including their 24-19

win over the Highlanders at

Carisbrook in the final.

“We had to go to Brisbane and

we beat the Reds in the semifinal

after they had dominated

all year. To tip them over there

and then go down to Dunedin

and beat the Highlanders,

looking back it’s a pretty big

feat,” said Somerville.

“We were all mates at the end

of the day, so you got to live and

breathe going to work with your

mates, and we also enjoyed a lot

of time off the field together as

well.”

Throughout his career,

Somerville has had the

nickname Yoda among

his teammates due to his

resemblance to the Star Wars

character.

“Xavier Rush came up with

that when were at a New

Zealand colts camp . . . he must

have seen something, I definitely

don’t have any special powers or

forces,” he said.

Following his final year

with the Crusaders in 2008,

Somerville spent two seasons

with Gloucester in the English

Premiership. He then played

his last season of rugby with

the Melbourne Rebels during

their inaugural Super Rugby

campaign in 2011. Following

this, Somerville relocated to

Auckland.

“I tried a few things. I worked

for PGG Wrightson for a year

and dabbled in a wee bit of

coaching here and there as a

scrum coach for a number of

teams,” he said.

After moving to Marlborough

and spending time coaching

with the Tasman Mako’s in

2017, he purchased Think Water

Marlborough.

“I love it here and the smaller

town vibe . . . the outdoors and

ocean is here. Life’s easy in

terms of getting around,” said

Somerville.

“Doing business in a small

town is good. You get to interact

with a wide range of people, but

everyone’s still connected and

think local and support local.”

KEY MAN: Greg Somerville

was one of the first names

on the team sheet during

his time at the Crusaders.

in brief

Top four finishes for

Canty basketballers

Two Canterbury basketball

teams finished in the top

four at the under-19 national

championships in Dunedin.

The under-19 men’s team were

unable to defend their title for

a third straight year, falling

to champions North Harbour

in the semi-final 78-100. The

side then rebounded to defeat

Wellington 61-67 and finish

third. Meanwhile, the under-17

girls team advanced to the

semi-finals before losing to

Waikato and Taranaki to finish

fourth. Canterbury players Tom

Webley and Helen Matthews

were both named in their

respective all-tournament teams.

West triumph over

East in league games

West took the honours 32-20

in the annual West v East

Canterbury Rugby League

fixture at Nga Puna Wai on

Monday. Hornby Panthers

forward Caius Faatili bagged a

double for West. Regan Stanton

(Hornby Panthers), Nick Evans

(Halswell Hornets), Tirikatene

Taiuru (Halswell Hornets)

and Zion Kamana (Riccarton

Knights) also scored for West.

The match was an opportunity

for players to press their case for

Canterbury Bulls selection later

in the year. West also took out

the inaugural women’s clash by

defeating East 38-12.

Volleyball medals

at national champs

Canterbury nabbed four medals

at the national provincial

volleyball championships in

Wellington over the weekend.

The under-21 men were crowned

champions after defeating

Harbour in straight sets 25-22,

25-21, 25-19. It was a remarkable

turnaround for the team after

losing to Harbour in straight

sets during pool play. The senior

men had to settle for silver after

being defeated by Harbour 25-

25, 25-18, 20-25, 19-25 in their

final. The senior women’s team

finished third after defeating

Waikato in straight sets in the

bronze medal match. They were

earlier defeated by champions

Harbour 21-25, 25-17, 16-25,

17-25 in the semi-final. The

under-17 girls team took silver

after going undefeated before

falling to Wellington in the final.

NEW BRIGHTON lock

Boris van Bruchem is

preparing to represent

New Zealand at a world

championships – but not

in rugby.

Van Bruchem, 20, will

travel to South Africa

following New Brighton’s

final game of the metro

rugby season as part of

the New Zealand team

to compete at the World

Korfball Championships

for the first time.

The 195cm lock grew

up around korfball – a

ball sport with similarities

to netball and basketball

– due to his parents

being Dutch. His parents

through playing korfball

in the Netherlands, where

more than 100,000 people

take part in the sport.

“I remember watching

my parents play, then they

coached a school team we

had at Richmond School,”

said van Bruchem.

He started playing rugby

as an eight-year-old for

Shirley before going on

to play first XV rugby at

Shirley Boys’ High School.

“Korfball helps with my

hand-eye co-ordination,

which helps with catching

and distributing the ball at

lineouts, but they are quite

different sports, which is

why I enjoy them because

it’s nice being able to do

something and the next

day having a different

training for a different

game,” he said.

He has played for the

New Zealand under-19

korfball team at

international competitions.

However, the world

championships will be his

first time playing for the

New Zealand senior side.

Last year van Bruchem

was part of the Canterbury

rugby team which

competed at the national

under-19 tournament.

Since the end of last

season, van Bruchem has

put on 10kg. Now 105kg,

he hopes the added size

will help him progress his

game to the next level.

“Every off-season is

about putting on weight

to be able to go to the

next level. It is a bit hard

because you have to eat a

lot,” he said.

Van Bruchem is used to

being the tallest player on

the rugby field.

However, when New

Zealand come up against

the Netherlands in

pool play at the korfball

champs, he will be brought

back to eye level with the

world’s best.

There’s going to be a lot

of really good players there,

it’s just going to be really

cool to test myself against

the best in the world,” he

said.

The World Korfball

Championships will

take place in Durban from

August 1-10.

But for now,

van Bruchem’s focus is

on helping New Brighton

reach the top six of the

metro rugby competition,

which can be achieved

with a win over Belfast on

Saturday.

Boxer hungry for success

• By Gordon Findlater

FASTING DURING Ramadan

and dropping down a weight

division wasn’t getting in the

way of Mujib (Jai) Ghazizada

winning the most scientific elite

boxer award at the South Island

Golden Gloves.

Ghazizada won the 64kg elite

male title by winning his three

fights at the Golden Gloves

held at the Kaiapoi Club at the

weekend. Following his gold

medal-winning bout he was then

awarded the most scientific elite

boxer.

He joins an elite list of boxers

to have won the trophy including

one of his idols – current WBU

Welterweight World Championship

Bowyn Morgan – who won

it in 2011 and 2012.

“When I took the trophy I saw

Bowyn Morgan’s name on it, I’m

a huge Bowyn Morgan fan . . . I

look up to him, he’s an amazing

boxer,” said Ghazizada.

The 24-year-old would normally

fight in the 69kg division.

However, due to Ramadan –

which means abstaining from

food and drink between sunrise

and sunset - he dropped down a

weight division.

“Normally I weigh around

67kg,” said Ghazizada.

“It was a bit difficult to recover,

but it was just a mind-set. I just

told myself to never give up and

give 100 per cent everything I

have.”

Ramadan finished yesterday

and Ghazizada celebrated in

traditional Afghani style with

rice and curry.

DETERMINED: Mujib Ghazizada (blue) lands a punch

en route to winning the 64kg elite male title at the South

Island Golden Gloves. ​

He and his family arrived in

New Zealand 14 years ago as

refugees from Afghanistan. One

of his first memories in New

Zealand was watching David

Tua and Shane Cameron fights

which sparked a keen interest in

the sport.

However, it was only two years

ago that he joined the Papanui

Boxing Club. His gold medal at

the Golden Gloves was just his

sixth fight as an amateur.

Ghazizada – who is a civil engineer

– has the dream of going

professional in the future.

“I’m really hungry for it . . .

It’s a dream, every time I think

about it keeps me going and

going, to turn professional and

become New Zealand champion

one day. Hopefully, I can

become a world champion,” said

Ghazizada.

His commitment to boxing

hasn’t gone unnoticed by his

coach Eric Sincock.

“He never misses a training

and he’s very good in the gym

with the other people,” said

Sincock.

The 75-year-old has been

involved as a coach at the

Papanui club for more than 20

years. However, it is the first

time he has won the coach of the

most scientific boxer award at a

South Island Golden Gloves.

THE INEVITABLE move to live

sport being streamed could hold

the answer to getting more bums

on seats at Super Rugby games.

Spark’s streaming service for

the Rugby World Cup is the first

sign of what is to come when it

comes to viewing our most popular

sport. If live Super Rugby

and All Black games move to

streaming in the future it could

help pack out stadiums if a local

market blackout is implemented.

A blackout is the non-airing of

a television or radio broadcast in

a particular market.

If a Super Rugby blackout

was introduced it would mean

Crusaders fans in Christchurch

wouldn’t be able to watch a live

broadcast of a home Crusaders

match. They would instead have

to attend the match to see it live

or watch delayed coverage.

There’s no hiding the ugly fact

rugby crowds in New Zealand

have dwindled over the past two

decades and one of the reasons

can be linked with the increased

accessibility and improved quality

of live broadcasts.

However, the same hasn’t happened

in some countries when

it comes to their most predominant

sports.

In the United Kingdom a

blackout has been in effect since

the early 1960s and forbids any

live soccer match from being

The best model to follow would

be the regional model which has

been used for major sports in the

United States.

For more than four decades

the NFL maintained a blackout

policy which stated that a home

game cannot be televised in the

team’s local market if 85 per cent

of the tickets are not sold out

72 hours prior to its start time.

The same policy applied to

Super Rugby would mean Crusaders

games could be broadcast

live to local viewers as long as the

stadium reaches capacity.

The reason live New Zealand

sport broadcasts moving to a

streaming platform would be the

ideal time to introduce blackouts

is because it could easily be implemented

through the geographical

location of IP addresses – meaning

you won’t be able to watch

through an internet connection

within X number of kilometres

from a team’s home ground.

The biggest argument against

this being unfair is the age old

“what if you can’t afford to go

to the game.” However, I can

assure you the cost of attending

a season of Crusaders games

wouldn’t work out to cost much

more than a Sky subscription for

a season.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Darren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East about the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visit to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE ST Andrew’s Co lege big

win a the National Youth Ja z

Competition – ba s player, Tom

Fastier, co lapsed and died the

day before the competition

began.

“Tom was a ba s player from

Cashmere High Sch ol who was

playing with our big band this

year. He had a strong chance of

wi ning best ba s player a the

festival as he was a very a complished

musician,” head of music

Duncan Ferguson said.

“We were delighted to win, but

it was bi tersw et,” he said.

St Andrew’s won the most

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 Hills Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

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

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about setting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

Pupils learn about role of war horses

The New Zealand Mounted

Mark A pleton and member

in a bid to educate pupils on the

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

their horses Tommy and Kruze

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

“You can just about guarant e

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

Community Board has taken the

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

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

Cave Rock

Apartments’

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

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

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

Winder was part of the Pure

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en

September-May along with a Thai

f od truck.

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

have taken a step back in time,

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and
