DAYS AFTER making its

long-awaited comeback the

iconic Ferrier Fountain was

switched off.

But three months after it was

supposed to be turned back on,

it remains out of action and

$70,000 has been spent on fixing

it.

The fountain was turned on for

the first time in eight years at the

same time as the Town Hall was

reopened in February.

However, the fountain heads

and stamens were taken away for

cleaning after some issues were

discovered. Parts required further

cleaning to remove pieces of

historic debris that had gathered

over the eight years they were

lying in storage.

The issues were only identified

following the first flush through.

Leave the

seals alone,

says DOC

IF YOU SEE a seal in an odd

place do not approach it.

That’s the warning from the

Department of Conservation,

which says from now until

August it’s common for young

seals to come ashore.

“We like to think of it as silly

seal season,” a DOC spokesman

said.

Due to seals’ exploratory

nature, they can appear in

odd places, such as paddocks,

roadsides or inner-city streets,

he said. “They’re not distressed,

they don’t need any human

intervention, and will return

to the water when rested and

ready. While seals may look

harmless and helpless they

are wild animals and will

defend themselves if they feel

threatened.”

DOC has a hands-off policy

with seals and will only

intervene if it is severely injured

or in a dangerous place.

“In that case, people could

call the DOC emergency

hotline 0800 DOC HOT.

Anyone charged with harassing,

disturbing, injuring or killing

a marine mammal faces a

maximum penalty of two years

imprisonment or a fine to a

maximum of $250,000.”

A RARE Antarctic seabird

which crash landed in suburban

Avonhead is the city’s latest

recorded bird species.

The soft-plumaged petrel

was discovered last month by

a resident who found it dazed

on the ground, Department

of Conservation biodiversity

supervisor Craig Alexander said.

“Once rescued, it was taken

to a private bird rehabilitation

centre run by a volunteer, where

birds are taken to be checked,

fed, treated and given time to

recover,” he said.

It was the 242nd bird species

to be recorded in the greater

Christchurch area.

The soft-plumaged petrel is

a medium-sized seabird which

breeds on subantarctic islands.

The only population in New

Zealand is on the Antipodes

Islands, 860km south-east of

Stewart Island.

The soft-plumaged petrel is an

uncommon native species that

ranges throughout the southern

oceans. It’s not commonly found

in the South Pacific but sightings

have been increasing since the

1970s,” Mr Alexander said.

The bird was released with

help from Keystone Ecology

ornithologist Niall Mugan in Te

Oka Reserve, near Birdlings Flat,

when it was back to full health.

“It’s one of those iconic birds,

it was a bit of a treat,” Mr Mugan

said.

“It’s a visitor to New Zealand,

but you’d be lucky to see it.”

Mr Mugan said when extreme

weather events hit, birds are often

drawn to land, which may have

been what happened to the petrel.

“When the storms hit, it does

push birds to the limit.”

However, he said its release was

a very special moment for him

as someone who had been bird

watching for about 30 years.

“It was one of those days that

will stick in my mind. It looked

back to us after it took off . . . it

was a weird kind of thing having

a look at us from its world as it

headed off towards Birdlings

Flat.”

Mr Alexander said DOC

believes the birds are attracted by

the city lights and sometimes end

up in odd places.

“Sometimes sea birds can

struggle to take off without the

coastal winds to assist them

and can appear dazed and

disorientated,” he said.

The 241st bird species to

be recorded has also made a

return to the city this year at the

Bromley oxidation ponds. The

siberian-breed northern shoveler

was first recorded last June near

the Halswell river mouth at

Lake Ellesmere and another at

Kaitorete Spit, near Birdlings

Flat, in November.

In April another shoveler was

spotted at the Bromley ponds, as

well as at Pegasus wetlands in the

Waimakariri district.

Central city living may get cheaper

• By Julia Evans

IF YOU purchase a home in the

central city, you may get a rates

reduction.

Reviewing the rates remission

policy is one of a suite of

incentives the city council is

investigating as

part of its

target to boost

the population

of the central

city from 6000 to

20,000 by 2028

Deon

Swiggs

Jake

McLellan

Matthew

Horncastle

as part of Project

8011.

However,

the Englefield

Residents

Association,

which covers

Fitzgerald Ave,

Avonside Drive,

Linwood Ave,

England St and

Armagh St, says

it seems like an

unfair proposal.

Said

chairwoman

Irinka Britnell:

“It’s a big incentive

because they’re

desperate to get

people into these

apartments that

don’t seem to be selling. They’re

not cheap,” she said.

INCENTIVES: The city council is reviewing its rates remission policy in a bid to boost the central city population from 6000

to 20,000 by 2028.

Ms Britnell said the Linwood

Village area needs rates rebates

with a lot of businesses closing

their doors.

However, Central Ward city

councillor Deon Swiggs said

the potential rebate and other

incentives are about “looking at

the bigger picture”. They could

also lift the value of the area and

offset the costs.

“Work needs to be done in the

central city to get people back.

But different work needs to be

done in areas like Linwood and

Addington. We’re not forgetting

about those suburbs.”

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board deputy

chairman and city council

candidate Jake McLellan said

he wants to see a “vibrant” city

centre.

“We need to do what’s most

effective . . . what we cannot do is

hand out millions and millions

for developers,” he said.

Any form of incentive

was supported by Williams

Corporation director Matthew

Horncastle.

“We have to keep momentum

going in terms of building in the

central city,” he said.

“Anything we can do to

keep this snowball going is a

positive.”

A further report will also go

to city councillors on a wider

package of incentives and

mechanisms to encourage more

residential development in the

central city by the end of next

month.

City council head of urban

regeneration, design and heritage

Carolyn Ingles said concerns

would be addressed when

considering a new remission,

which is the purpose of the

review.

The incentives work has

been undertaken to investigate

the potential of each incentive to

encourage development.”

Ms Ingles said how different

incentives would encourage

development will be part of the

next phase of work.

It also approved a $100,000

trial service for developers and

landowners to discuss concepts

with city council staff.

Project 8011 was endorsed by

city councillors last year.

It found high land and

building costs, affordability in

the suburbs, consenting hassles

and lack of apartment culture

were some of the reasons for the

lack of population growth within

the central city.

Family connects with Cretans who

FAMILY: Brian Wright holds memorabilia collected by his

late father, Arthur Wright, during and after World War 2.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

• By Sophie Cornish

WITH ONLY their first names,

one photo and the internet,

it took less than 48 hours to

connect two families brought

together by war, 78-years-ago.

Emma Ebrahim was left in

disbelief when she discovered

the Kalogeri family, descendants

of the people who helped hide

her grandfather, Arthur Ernest

Wright, from the Nazis following

the Battle of Crete in 1941.

Through the power of Facebook,

a post from Mrs Ebrahim’s

private Facebook page with only

a photo and their first names,

Irene, Tasos and Nicolas, reached

a Greek media outlet.

“Help . . . do you know these

people from Crete? . . . We hope

that someone may know this

family so we can learn more

about them and meet their descendants.

Without their help the

next three generations would not

be here,” Mrs Ebrahim wrote on

Facebook.

In an almost unbelievable turn

of events, the wife of the chief editor

was the daughter of Nicolas,

one of the children of the family

who had helped her grandfather,

almost 80 years ago.

Nicolas was 16-years-old when

he met 22-year-old Mr Wright

and is still alive today at age 89.

He told his family he remembers

Mr Wright.

REMEMBERING: The note on the back of the photo

which was used by Emma Ebrahim to track down her

grandfather’s rescuers from World War 2. It reads: To our

friend Arthur, Irene-Tasos-Nicolas. In order to remember our

island Crete and our country Greece.

“I posted it on Tuesday (last

week) and I had heaps of messages.

My brain was buzzing, it

was like I could feel the energy of

all these people thinking about

me. By the time I went to bed on

Thursday I just knew I was going

to find them,” said Mrs Ebrahim.

Mr Wright’s son, Brian Wright,

of Prebbleton, will now travel

to Crete in September with Mrs

Ebrahim (his daughter) to meet

Nicolas and his family.

The former Christchurch

woman now lives in Melbourne

with her husband and two sons.

“Emma is very determined, she

said to me, ‘we are going to find

that family,’” said Brian.

Like most soldiers, Mr Wright

told his family little about his

time during the war.

It wasn’t until his final years

when he shared stories that

his family discovered he was a

prisoner of war.

Mrs Ebrahim has been

interviewed by multiple Greek

news outlets which have picked

up the story.

helped Kiwi soldier during WW2

They are expecting a warm

welcome in Crete and have been

told excitement levels are high for

the meeting.

“Everybody over there is so

excited that we are coming. I

have heard that the people of

Crete are very thankful for what

the New Zealanders and other

allies tried to do to save their

island from the Germans,” said

Brian.

When the war broke out in

1939, Mr Wright and his older

brother George volunteered and

were sent to Burnham Military

Camp.

On January 5, 1940, Mr Wright

and George, both members of the

20 th Infantry Battalion, boarded

the troopship Dunera, bound for

Egypt.

They later sailed to Greece,

where they fought until

retreating to Crete.

On May 20, 1941, Germany

launched Operation Mercury,

one of the most dramatic battles

of World War 2, which later

became known as the Battle of

Crete.

As German forces looked to

take control of Crete, more than

half of the allies were evacuated

to Egypt by the Royal Navy and

the remainder were forced to

surrender or join the Cretan

resistance.

Mr Wright was left stranded

in Crete and taken prisoner

alongside another solider, Stanley

Hughes.

George became ill in Crete and

was transported home.

“From what we know, he was

very unwell when the Germans

arrived and it seems strange

but basically they just bundled

him back to New Zealand. He

obviously wasn’t considered a

threat because he was so ill,” said

Brian.

In a book, One Soldier’s War:

The Campaigns of Greece, Crete,

Western Desert Egypt and Italy,

by Stanley Hughes, Mr Hughes

shared part of his journey in

Crete with Mr Wright.

Starvation played a big part

during their time in the war,

with POWs only fed one bowl of

soup twice daily.

In the evening of June 22, Mr

Wright and Mr Hughes escaped

the prison camp through the

fence and disguised themselves

among olive trees, aware the area

was being patrolled by German

guards.

They then travelled on foot

for many days, hiding in the

forest and in caves. They often

received small amounts of food

from locals willing to take the

risk.

Eventually they arrived in a

village named Cambos.

EARLY DAYS: Arthur

Wright, 22, in Egypt in

1940. He travelled on the

troopship Dunera from New

Zealand to Egypt before

being sent to Greece.

What was the Battle of

Crete?

•Crete is the largest island

of Greece, located south

of the mainland in the

Mediterranean Sea.

•It became a German

target following its rapid

occupation of the Greek

mainland in April 1941.

There was more

than 42,000 British,

Commonwealth and Greek

soldiers on the island,

including about 7700 New

Zealand soldiers.

•Just after dawn on May 20,

1941, Germany launched

Operation Mercury, in Crete,

one of the most dramatic

battles of World War 2.

•It was the first occasion

where German paratroops

were used en masse,

the first mainly airborne

invasion in military history.

There was about 22,000

paratroopers and mountain

troops.

•After day one, the Germans

had suffered heavy

casualties and the Allied

troops were confident they

would defeat the invasion.

The next day, through

communication failures,

the Allies hesitated and the

Germans gained control

of an airfield in western

Crete, enabling them to

land reinforcements and

overwhelm their defensive

positions in the north.

The battle lasted for 12

days before Allied forces

then withdrew to the south

coast. More than half were

evacuated to Egypt by

the Royal Navy and the

remainder surrendered

or joined the Cretan

resistance.

•About 2180 New

Zealanders became

prisoners of war and

another 671 were killed.

•Some Allies took to the

hills, sheltered by the

Cretans who, to this day,

remember New Zealand’s

role in the battle.

•It was the first occasion

during World War 2

where German troops

encountered widespread

resistance from a civilian

population.

•As most Cretans wore no

uniforms or insignia, the

Germans felt free of all

of the constraints of the

Hague Conventions and

killed hundreds of armed

and unarmed civilians.

They stayed on the outskirts,

sleeping in the forest a short

distance from the houses as

German soldiers raided homes

in the night, trying to find allied

soldiers.

“Among the people who visited

us daily were the Kalogeri

family who appeared to be a well

educated business type family,”

said Mr Hughes.

The Germans weren’t just

targeting the allies, they also

brutalised innocent Cretans,

killing many in order to set an

example of what would happen

if they were caught hiding the

enemy.

Flyers were dropped all over

the island requesting soldiers

who were on the run to surrender,

or they would be treated

as a spy.

Eventually, Mr Wright handed

himself over to German forces,

in fear of getting his new friends

in trouble.

Mr Wright remained in Crete

as a prisoner until December

1941. He was then transported

by boat to Salonika and cattle

camp in Lamsdorf, Germany.

Home invasion offender

pleads guilty to attacking

another prisoner

• By Sophie Cornish

A WOMAN jailed for a violent

home invasion of an elderly

couple has pleaded guilty to

attacking another inmate while

in prison.

Shantai Lawson, 39, was

charged with injuring

with intent to injure

which was heard in

the district court last

week.

Christchurch

Women’s Prison

prison director

Deborah Alleyne said

police were notified of

a prisoner on prisoner

assault in February.

“Staff responded

immediately and

intervened. The victim of the

assault was seen by prison

health services staff before being

transferred to another area of the

prison. The alleged perpetrator

was placed on directed segregation

and remains before the

court for prosecution,” she said.

Lawson will be sentenced on

September 17.

In November, Lawson was

jailed for five years and nine

months after admitting her role

in the robbery of the couple in

their Papanui home in August

last year.

Along with her co-offender,

Maera Elizabeth Todd, the pair

targeted John McCammon, following

him home, because they

thought he would be vulnerable

and have money.

They then

barged into his

house, holding

him down with a

cushion over his

face and threatened

to cut him

with the garden

secateurs he had

been using.

His wife,

Colleen McCammon

arrived

home during the incident and

was pushed down concrete steps.

Several items were stolen from

the couple before Lawson and

Todd were caught nearby.

Since 1997, Lawson has 47

convictions for thefts and other

dishonesty, 14 convictions for

violence, 30 for breaches of court

orders or sentences, and has

served eight jail terms.

She was assessed as being a

high risk of re-offending and

causing harm to others.

INJURIES: Colleen

THE SOUTH Island’s largest

high school will soon have a

gender neutral bathroom.

Burnside High School is

following a nationwide trend

of being inclusive and diverse

by planning a gender neutral

toilet facility, which is due to be

completed next month for use in

term three.

Principal Phil Holstein said the

move was in response to students

who wanted

a gender

diverse space

where they feel

comfortable.

The new

bathroom

will be in

the school’s

central block.

“This is a

big step for

us in order to

acknowledge and recognise our

gender neutral students,” Mr

Holstein said.

Burnside High follows

Beckenham Primary School

and Lincoln High School,

which also have gender neutral

bathrooms.

The trend has been supported

by the Ministry of Education,

which has funded the facility at

Burnside.

The school has a total roll of

about 2500 students and has a

LGBTQ+ club, which has been in

place for four years.

Teacher in charge of the

LGBTQ+ club Karen Healey

said Burnside High has students

who feel “uncomfortable using

“We really want schools to be a

safe and supporting environment

for students, and that can mean

adjusting our mind, language,

and even our buildings,” she

said.

It follows Burnside High’s

decision to open up the

school uniform regulations to

interpretation by students.

Students can now choose what

school uniform items they are

comfortable in, rather than being

restricted to clothing by gender

The city council is also seeking

Lancaster Park

plan takes

another step

• By Julia Evans

THE OUTCOME of discussions

over the future use of Lancaster

Park will be revealed next week.

The quake-damaged stadium

is being pulled down, with

demolition work scheduled to be

completed later this year.

City council staff have been

discussing the future of the park

with Ngāi Tahu, the Crown, the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board and other

key stakeholders, such as the

Charleston Neighbourhood

Association, Woolston

Community Association, XCHC,

Phillipstown Community Hub

and the Christchurch Youth

Council.

The feedback from these

meetings will be presented to

the community board at its next

meeting on June 17. The plan is

for the park to be used for sport

as there is a shortage of parks in

the communities neighbouring

Lancaster Park.

However, the city council is

asking the community what

attributes it wants to see in the

park. Sports clubs which have

been involved are the Lancaster

Park Cricket Club, Cashmere

Technical Football Club and

Sydenham and Otautahi rugby

clubs.

Church restoration funding nears end

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

news online at www.star.kiwi

A LONG battle to fund the

restoration of one of the city’s

most historic churches is now on

the “home straight.”

For nearly eight years,

volunteers have been fundraising

to restore the St Peter’s Anglican

Church.

The Upper Riccarton church,

which was consecrated in 1858,

was damaged in the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

The hard work has paid off

with $2.1 million raised by

the church. Restoration work

started in April.

Parish reverend Nick

Mountfort said he is very

excited but still needs to find an

additional $400,000 to cover the

costs.

The main work for the restoration

of the church located on

Yaldhurst Rd is strengthening

the ceilings and walls.

Rev Mountfort said steel beams

will be run under the building to

strengthen it along with bracing

in the ceiling and walls.

“In the event of an earthquake,

nobody will be in danger in that

building. Which is reassuring because

stone buildings in Christchurch

are a bit scary,” he said.

The original architecture of

the church will be maintained

while the north and south transept

will be extended to allow for

more amenities that were not in

the old building.

The church has a number of

fundraising efforts planned with

a garage sale in September and a

ball next year.

It is also running a living stone

fundraiser where members of

the community can sponsor a

living stone from the church for

$500 or a block for $1000 and

their names will be listed on the

walls of the restoration.

Rev Mountfort said it is continuing

to apply to trusts and

charities around the world for

the final funding needed.

He said people with links to

the church and community

members have been very generous

with helping the church

raise $2.1 million so far.

The city council granted

$150,000 from its capital

endowment fund in 2017 for the

cause. It is estimated the church

will be restored by August 2020.

cause and raise awareness,” she

Thank you for

Fall Zones

community

To all of you who have had your

trees trimmed before they became

a problem, thank you for keeping all

the families in your community warm,

happy, healthy and connected.

You can be proud of the fact that you have allowed your

neighbours to stay warm, cook dinner and even charge

their mobile phones. You may not have realised that what

you’ve done has had much impact, but from all of us here

at Orion, we just want to say thank you.

Notice and Growth limit zones

B

A

Power line voltage A. Growth limit zone B. Notice zone

66,000 volts 4.0m 5.0m

33,000 volts 2.5m 3.5m

11,000 volts 1.6m 2.6m

400/230 volts 0.5m 1.5m

We’re not exaggerating.

On our network, 10-20% of all unplanned power outages are

caused by trees — including vegetation — coming into contact

with power lines. Other than this, fire damage to property from

branches sparking in dry conditions and serious injury from

electrocution from contact with trees touching power lines are

also possible consequences of not maintaining your trees.

How close is too close?

While most damage is caused by trees falling on power lines,

significant risk exists from trees merely touching them. This risk

increases the higher the voltage of the power line.

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees

and power lines, as defined in the Electricity (Hazards from

Trees) Regulations 2003, are outlined in the diagrams above.

All vegetation should be kept out of the growth limit zone and

preferably the notice zone.

Sometimes it may not be practical to have a tree trimmed at the

rate at which it grows and unfortunately, this means it may need

to be removed. Other situations may require trees to be removed,

most commonly when they are at a high risk of falling due to

disease or adverse weather events.

Where do I start?

Before you begin, remember to keep yourself, and those around

you, safe. We recognise that not everyone is experienced in tree

trimming and are happy to advise you on what to do. We can arrange

for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your expense, however

we recommend you hire professionals to safely carry out the work.

If you or someone working for you intends to work within four

metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from

Orion before you start. As a tree owner, you may be liable for any

damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

Will I be fined if I don’t comply?

If a cut or trim notice is given to you and you fail to have the tree

trimmed and/or advise us of the time and location of the trim

without a reasonable excuse, this is an offence. This will make you

liable for a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues,

you will be liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every

day or part day during which the offence continues.

More info can be found on our website and if

you have any questions or notice any trees

touching power lines in your area, please call

us on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

Future of the

old municipal

chambers

• By Julia Evans

POTENTIAL USES for the old

municipal chambers have been

discussed behind-closed-doors.

Options for the future of the

decaying historic building on

Worcester St were presented to the

city council’s social, community

development and housing

committee yesterday.

The report was considered in

the public-excluded section of

the meeting as it’s commercially

sensitive. An announcement about

the future use of this building will

be made once details are finalised,”

said city council principal adviser

citizens and community Brent

Smith.

“Last year, we asked groups

and individuals to express their

interest in using and/or helping us

to restore these buildings.”

Mr Smith said recommendations

to the committee follow investigations

into the viability of the

expressions of interest received.

The old municipal chambers

are highly significant heritage

buildings, and the council

acknowledges the need to retain,

protect and preserve their heritage

values.”

There is $300,000 budgeted in

the Long Term Plan for interim

repairs and maintenance work.

PHIL PRICE is touted as a world

leader when it comes to kinetic

sculpture.

And another piece of the

Nelson-born, Canterbury

University-educated sculptor’s

work is the latest public artwork

earmarked for the central city.

Lift will be installed on the

“Designing

and be carried out in spring,” an

It will be Price’s second work

on display in the city – he is also

behind Nucleus on the corner of

High, Lichfield and Manchester

Sts.

Lift was made in 1992 during

his only ever residency at Queen

Mary Hospital in Hanmer.

“At this early stage in his

career, Price was keen to

is one of a small few from what

Price describes as his pre-kinetic

sculptures,” a report said.

“Price was fascinated by flight

and movement but it had not yet

dawned on him to make kinetic

sculpture.”

The spokesman said the

majority of the Avon River

Precinct is complete.

“Work on a simple riverside

pathway from Kilmore St to

Fitzgerald Ave that will connect

the city promenade to the future

in the year.”

Installation of the art work

was approved yesterday by the

Left-leaning political group

The People’s Choice has named

Nathan McCluskey as its

candidate for the election.

The owner and managing

director of a research

consultancy firm lives in

Papanui. Mr McCluskey will

take on incumbent Mike

Davidson and Papanui-Innes

Community Board member

John Stringer for the city council

spot and will also stand for a

against Mr Stringer and a second

The People’s Choice candidate,

Merav Benaia.

He may also be up against

Think Papanui’s Simon Britten,

who is yet to announce whether

he will run for the city council or

a community board seat.

Mr McCluskey stood for

the community board spot

under The People’s Choice

banner in 2016 but polled

fourth behind Emma Norrish

and Mr Stringer, who were

elected, and Mr Britten.

Cr Davidson said he is looking

forward to the challenges this

year’s election will bring and

hopes more candidates will

result in a higher voter turnout.

“I think it adds to better

democracy; it’s important that

we get more people running.”

He went head-to-head for

Papanui’s city council seat

against Mr Stringer in the 2016

elections and received 3316 votes

compared to Mr Stringer’s 2364.

Cr Davidson said he is

confident about maintaining

his position because of the work

he has done within the Papanui

Ward and throughout the city,

such as trying to reduce rates.

(Mr McCluskey) and he’s

quite a nice chap. I’m not

sure if he offers too much

more than what I offer

but that’s fine, that’s what

democracy is all about.”

“Quite frankly, I don’t

really believe party politics

belongs in local government,

but obviously that’s their

decision.”

Mr McCluskey said his

campaign will be positive

and future-focused.

“That means being positive

and future-focused. I

believe in the power of local

democracy to represent the

best interests of engaged

communities. That means

protecting natural resources

like water so they are

sustainable for my lifetime

and future generations,”

said Mr McCluskey.

The People’s Choice did

not run anyone for the

Papanui council spot in the

2016 elections.

The People’s Choice chairman

Keir Leslie said the group was

fortunate this time round to

have strong candidates willing to

put their hand up for council.

“Mr McCluskey has got a lot

of skills. As a business owner,

he’s aware of what it takes to

make the sums add up at the

end of the month. He’s got really

strong values and would make a

great councillor,” said Mr Leslie.

Since 1959 only 25 students

Intersection

submissions

under analysis

UPGRADING A controversial

Harewood intersection received

about the same amount of

feedback as the $10 million Christ

Church Cathedral grant.

A call for submissions on two

options for improving the safety

of Harewood, Breens and Gardiners

Rds intersection led to about

1000 submissions – the Cathedral

grant had 1063 submissions

“We have had a huge response

to our request for public submissions

on the two options we are

considering for improving the

safety,’’ said council senior project

manager Brendan Bisley.

City council staff are now

analysing the submissions so they

can prepare a report on safety

improvements.

Last month the city council

announced it was looking at two

options for improving the intersection.

The first option involves

closing the median on Harewood

Rd, making both Gardiners Rd

and Breens Rd left-turn in and

left-turn out only, and installing a

traffic-light controlled pedestrian

crossing.

It would cost about $400,000

and is preferred by the council.

The second option involves

installing traffic lights at the

intersection at a cost of $1.2

million.

Bid to reinstall Cave Rock Dumbstruck by the Wiggles

signal tower lights

• By Louis Day

SUMNER resident Toni Pengelly

has a special connection to the

Cave Rock signal tower.

Her grandfather Jack Kerr

served as a crew member for the

Sumner Lifeboat Institution from

1940 to 1987.

During his time as skipper, he

relied on information and lighting

from the signal tower, which

served as their control tower, to

complete rescues.

However, the tower has not

been illuminated for at least 10

years.

Ms Pengelly, alongside the

Sumner-Redcliffs Historical Society,

is on a mission to get

the lights back on the signal

tower.

The city council has said it

would be open to the idea of

lights being reinstalled but has

no funding available. Formal

access agreements would also be

required but have not been given

at this stage

Ms Pengelly said they would

be approaching the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board for funding once they

had been granted permission to

progress with the project.

She thought the lights would

add to the beauty of Sumner.

“I remember the days the cross

was lit up, it was fabulous, it was

just spectacular. The absence

signal tower.

of the lights has been a real loss

to the community since they

stopped functioning over the

last 10 to 15 years in terms of

aesthetics and the historical significance,”

she said.

The signal mast was constructed

on Cave Rock by the

regional council in 1864. This

was in response to demands from

shipping companies to make the

Sumner entrance safer for trading

vessels travelling to the Heathcote

wharves at Woolston.

The original signal station

became the Sumner Lifeboat

Institution’s control tower in 1958

when a base radio transmitter

was installed to communicate

directly with the lifeboat when

she was at sea.

WOW, WHAT a week.

I never thought I would have

childhood vicariously through my

daughter.

Laura and I took Vittoria to

the Wiggles on Saturday and it

was amazing. I kind of feel like

the first parent to see Shrek when

I say there was definitely some

jokes in there for the adults too,

which is why I liked it so much.

It’s not just because I like the

It was a big surprise for

keep it from her, and it totally

blew her little Wiggle-loving

mind. Honestly, it was watching

her love it which really made it

for me.

I so wish I had managed to

get it on film, but when they

came out on stage her wee mouth

fell open so wide you could’ve

driven the big red car right on in

there.

The running theory for me

and Laura is that Vittoria was

struggling to comprehend

that her favourite colourful

Australians were actually real.

Dancing along with her was a

blast, she knows a bunch of the

actions and at home she even

gets excited if you say the word

“Wiggles” while standing near the

TV.

Only thing was, she

whole thing.

To be fair, her Wiggles

experience had exploded from

watching them on Netflix to

dancing along in a room chock

a-block full of other hyperactive

Wiggles fans while the real deal

Wiggles sang on stage.

By the end of the show she had

her head around it.

I can’t wait for them to

do another show here, it’ll

be interesting to see how

Vittoria would go on the second

round.

To cap the week off, Vittoria

and I have moved out to North

Canterbury for a few days to look

after my mum and step-dad’s

place in Waikuku while they’re

away on holiday.

It’s just us two and two small

dogs hanging out in my home

town/village. It’s going to be great

and likely a challenge.

I’ve never really been a

on how that goes.

Peacocks being relocated

• By Louis Day

NINE peacocks were relocated

from the Port Hills on Monday

after five were shot last month.

The peacocks have been

relocated to a farm in

Marlborough.

However, seven peacocks

remain.

The relocation effort comes

after a neighbourly dispute

between Janelle Wills, who feeds

the wild peacocks, and farmer

Sue Stubenvoll, who does not

want them wandering on to her

property.

In February, Ms Stubenvoll

sent a legal letter to Miss Wills,

saying she had the right to

shoot the peacocks under the

Impounding Act. She gave Miss

Wills four weeks notice.

Last month, Ms Stubenvoll

five peacocks which were on her

property.

She then skinned, roasted and

ate one of them for dinner.

Ms Stubenvoll said she has not

N G Smith – I have been

reading reports that open road

speed limits may be reduced and

it has me wondering what the

promoters base this on?

Over the last week I have driven

about 1000km around the narrow

lanes, and single carriage way

roads in Southern England, all

with a 60mph (100km/h) limit,

in comparison NZ roads are far

superior in both visibility and surfaces

and with very light traffic.

To date I have yet to see an

accident, or any car with dents,

perhaps people concentrate more

as they are aware of other road

users and the need to be alert at

all times?

Dropping limits will cause

boredom, sleepiness and frustration

and the perennial slow drivers

will continue to tailgate both

trucks and cars and then speed up

to close gaps should faster traffic

decided whether she will shoot

more.

News of the incident appalled

local residents, with some taking

to the community Facebook

group ‘Lyttelton – Ain’t No Place

I’d Rather Be’ to vent their anger.

Ms Stubenvoll then called the

police after she was branded a

murderer by various residents.

She told The Star the culling was

to prevent the peacocks eating the

rare gecko and skink populations

which live on the farm.

Miss Wills said she was still

losing sleep after five of the

peacocks were shot.

“It is still very stressful because

we don’t want to wake up to more

dead,” she said.

probably the major cause of head

on collisions and fatalities.

Perhaps we should keep the

traffic and economy going

forward by reviewing the limits

upwards and educate the slower

drivers to stay left and allow

plenty of space for following cars

to pass safely.

Failing to do this should attract

similar penalties to those charged

with exceeding the limit.

Keep the traffic and economy

moving by opposing this

nonsense.

Giving communities a

role in decision-making

ONE OF the papers we are

considering at council this week

will see us move away from

centralised decision-making

towards a more participatory,

localised and collaborative

approach.

By entering into councilcommunity

board governance

partnership agreements,

decision-making will be brought

closer to the communities to

which the decisions relate.

When you think about community

boards and their relationships

with local resident associations

and community groups,

and their ability to represent and

advocate for their interests, then

it makes sense that delegations

be set in the context of a partnership

with the council. Entrusting

community boards with local decisions

makes good sense, and it

saves double-handling with community

boards no longer having

to consider matters in detail only

to make a recommendation to

the council.

Mayor

The Star Thursday June 13 2019

A decentralised approach to

governance also means that the

council as a whole can be more

responsive to the diverse needs

of the communities we serve.

A partnership approach is a

commitment by the council to

formally and consistently seek

community board input prior to

making significant governance

decisions.

By recognising each of the

community board plans as

a strategic document to be

included in the preparation

of service plans, annual plans

and long-term plans, more

communities will have a reason

to be involved in working with

their community boards right

from the outset. This has got to

be good for local democracy and

good decision-making.

We want to ensure the

partnership agreement is a living

document, so we will review the

delegations with the community

boards six months into the next

term.

Combatting the stress of being creative

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

AWARD-WINNING composer

and author Jeff Crabtree has two

ultimate goals for the performing

arts community – longevity and

productivity.

“What if we could get these

amazing people to live longer

lives and produce over a longer

period of time. Wouldn’t that be

a better world?”

It is why Crabtree and his wife

Julie are bringing their more

than 15 years-in-the-making

research on creativity and mental

health to the city for the first

time in July.

Living with a Creative Mind

Symposium aims to help people

with creative minds to uncover

how their mind is wired and why

their lives may be led at such

extremes.

The workshop will focus on

about 27 methods including

practising mindfulness to help

creatives to not become vulnerable

to anxiety or depression.

Based in Sydney, Crabtree is

a musician who specialises in

gospel blues and film scoring.

His wife, Julie is a psychologist

specialising in issues associated

with creative artists and performers.

Under their company Zebra

Collective, in 2010 they published

Living with a Creative

Mind – an operating handbook

for a creative person.

A key problem is often creatives

have a quality called skinlessness

– which means they take

in the emotional state of people

around them, Crabtree said.

“You might go to a social function

and have a great time. But

a person really skinless is going

there and they are feeling overwhelmed

. . . they are picking up

everyone else’s stress.

“A lot of people are selfmedicating

. . . it is not that they

have suddenly gone off the deep

end morally, they are needing

to do something to help cope,”

Crabtree said.

He said he wants to equip

creatives with tools to help them

live better lives without them

becoming addicted to nonprescription

medication.

How can you tell if you have a

creative mind? Crabtree said it is

as easy as getting a psychologist

to get you to take a test.

“I think the best way to think

of creative thinking is having

two opposites,” he said.

On one side, creative people

are often left-field or out-of-thebox

thinkers while the other is

they are logical and disciplined.

“I think there is this idea that

people that produce creatively is

they have this airy-fairy jumping

around like a butterfly

kind of life and there is

part of them that is like

that.”

But Crabtree said just

about every creative

professional he has met is

highly disciplined.

“Look no further than

Sir Peter Jackson – look

at all the interview

material with him. There

is part of him almost

whimsical and fay . . . on the

other he is incredibly disciplined.”

He said creativity is a way of

thinking – it is not only musicians,

artists and painters – it is

CONCERNS:

Jeff and Julie

Crabtree want

creatives to

live long and

productive lives.

businessmen and entrepreneurs,

Crabtree said.

“I don’t know Jacinda Ardern

at all but her approach to the

recent events tell me she has deployed

a different way to thinking

than standard . . .

she is regarded as out

of the box.”

One of Crabtree’s

key concerns is there

is a strong association

between drug-taking

and the creative industry.

A study conducted

by mental health organisation

Entertainment

Assist in 2016

showed 44 per cent of workers

in the Australian entertainment

industry had moderate to severe

anxiety.

This is 10 times higher in the

entertainment industry rate

compared to the general population.

Out of 2904 people in the industry

surveyed, 7.7 per cent had

attempted suicide – more than

double the general population.

“What we are trying to do is

prove is you don’t need to die

young for your art, you don’t need

to be tortured. You don’t need to

be suffering,” Crabtree said.

In New Zealand, he said work

is being done with organisations

including the The New Zealand

Music Foundation having a support

line providing free counselling

for those in the music

industry.

An example of huge loss of

talent to the entertainment

industry was American actor,

director and producer Phillip

Seymour Hoffman – who died

from acute mixed drug intoxication,

including heroin at the age

of 46 in 2014.

Following his death it was

discussed in the entertainment

industry what amazing work

could have been produced but

had been stolen away because of

his early death.

“If you put him in a

different movie he suddenly

becomes a different person.

Maybe it is arguable he is the

greatest character actor of our

generation,” he said.

Cellist pays tribute to Lloyd Webber

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

IT HAS been 30 years since

established cellist Ashley Brown

first played a piece which he says

is as “close to rock music as you

are going to get on a cello.”

Brown, 47, is now bringing

back the piece, called Theme and

Variations 1-4 (Paganini Caprice

in A Minor No. 24), for Showbiz

Christchurch’s production of The

Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber

In Concert, which runs from

tomorrow to Sunday at the Isaac

Theatre Royal.

When he was 17, Brown and

several friends performed the

piece, based on Italian violinist

Niccolò Paganini’s Caprice No

24 In A Minor, at a Chamber

Music New Zealand national

competition. It took them all the

way to the finals.

“At the finals, the judge said

this is not chamber music. We

were kicked out at that point but

we had a total blast,” he said.

As the founder of musical

group NZTrio, Brown, who is

based in Auckland, has led a

successful career, sharing the

stage with well known musicians

like Neil Finn and Dame Gillian

Whitehead.

NZTrio has been described

as a “national treasure” and is

a proud ambassador of New

CRISTINA GOTTARDI

Zealand music. The group has

featured at least one Kiwi piece

of music in every concert it has

performed during its 17-year

history.

Recently Brown was joined

by two new members, violinist

Amalia Hall and pianist Somi

Kim, after founding members,

Justine Cormack and Sarah

Watkin, departed after 15 years

with the group.

As the starring cellist in the

Showbiz Christchurch concert,

Brown will also perform Lloyd

Webber’s Variations 1-4, 22 & 23.

The show will feature music

from some of Lloyd Webber’s

greatest shows, including The

Phantom of the Opera, Cats

and Joseph and the Amazing

Technicolor Dreamcoat.

There will be 14 soloists,

a 33-piece orchestra and 30

dancers on-stage.

While Brown normally locks

in his performances a year in

advance, he was only asked to

take part in The Music of Andrew

Lloyd Webber In Concert about a

week and a half ago.

Brown, who grew up on

Phantom of the Opera and Chess,

said the concert will “be a ball.”

He briefly studied law and

music at Canterbury University,

and says his father and

grandmother both previoulsy

lived in Christchurch, which

means the city “has always felt

like home” for him.

OUR PEOPLE – WAYNE HAWKER

Battling on behalf of the community

Community advocate

Wayne Hawker has

been in a tireless battle

against a bottle store

recently, which has

reached a satisfying

resolution. He speaks to

Julia Evans about his

life of community work

and plan for Lancaster

Park

You had a big win in the fight

against the Phillipstown bottle

store. How did that feel?

It was a justified win for

our community and we were

very pleased with the decision

that was made. But we’re not

celebrating just yet because

Liquorland do have a right of

appeal. They would have to make

it through the High Court and

the only way they can appeal

is on a point of law. Reading

through the decision made by

the alcohol regulatory authority,

I do not believe that they have

the grounds under the law. So

once that two-week window is

closed, that’s when we will have

a mild celebration. We’re just

going to have a little get-together

for people in the community and

those who came along to support

us and that worked with us.

Because the reality is this whole

campaign has been going since

2017, so it’s been going on for

over 18 months. It’s a drawn out

process and we’ve had to bide our

time to get the right result.

How difficult was that battle?

Were there moments when you

thought it was hopeless?

I wouldn’t say difficult, I would

say challenging. But we went

all out, I’m a bit unorthodox

in the way I go about things.

Liquorland’s parent company

is Foodstuffs so part of our

campaign was a small group of

us actually picketed outside of

Foodstuffs head office on Main

North Rd.

We also held a protest outside

the site where the liquor store was

meant to be and we also actually

went and held a small picket

protest for a couple of hours

outside the Liquorland store in

Riccarton Rd, where the owners

of that store wanted to open the

new one.

We made sure during all our

campaign that it was always in

the media and it was at the front

of people’s minds so it didn’t get

lost in the background. When

we went through the hearings

process we had all the agencies

like the police, the Canterbury

District Health Board and the

liquor licensing inspectors

opposing it and we really hit

the ground running. We were

fortunate that we found out about

the potential for this liquor store

going in weeks before the actual

application went in. As soon as

we heard that, we hit the ground

running.

We achieved something that

surprised a lot of people in

that we actually gathered more

than 121 letters of objection

and submitted them into the

committee. While there was

only a small group of about 11

or 12 objectors to speak to the

committee, we were well versed

in what we should be saying and

how we should say it.

The Canterbury Community

Law Centre, they gave us a lot

of advice that we were grateful

for. Then we had the process of

two full days of a hearing and

for some of us it was long days.

Back then, I was working nights,

I started at 10pm and finished at

7am and then start the hearing at

10am. I don’t mind, I’m sure used

to long hours and I generally

don’t sleep a lot anyway, so it’s no

worries for me.

OUR PEOPLE 25

and winning through unorthodox style

Why didn’t you want a bottle

store there?

For one thing, Phillipstown

is a low socio-economic area,

there’s a lot of social issues. On

the Government’s deprivation

scale, we rank nine out of 10.

That sort of thing has issues

for a community. We’re aware

there’s a lot of issues for the

community, we’re aware there’s a

lot of council and social housing

within the community, there’s a

lot of vulnerable people. When

you look across the city as to how

many liquor outlets, we thought

well no, there’s no need for it

here. While they wanted to put

the liquor store in Phillipstown,

we weren’t their target clientele.

They said people were going to

come from Sumner, Redcliffs and

if that’s where your clientele are

coming from, the simple answer

is that they should open up in

those communities. But up there

those communities do have the

resources to really take a fight to

them. They chose Phillipstown

because they did not expect to

get the backlash they got. A lot

of people have said there’s one

thing they didn’t count on when

they chose Phillipstown and that

was me. This is the second liquor

store in the last 10 years that I’ve

stopped in Phillipstown.

What was the first one?

It was a few years ago now,

back in about 2010 just before

our school closed. It was only

about 1km from the school on

Stanmore Rd. A liquor store

wanted to go in there so once

again I was very unorthodox in

my approach. I found out who

the owner was and he owned a

supermarket across the other

side of town. So I made a placard

and a petition and I went and

stood outside his supermarket

on the other side of town. People

wanted to know what I was

doing and when they found out

they were quite happy to sign

the petition. The manager of the

supermarket came out and had

a go at me because people were

going inside and having a go at

them. They threatened to call

the police on me and I said be

my guest because legally I wasn’t

doing anything wrong, I had no

control of what people did when

they walked into the store. They

walked away and I said see you

later, and by the way, I’m going

to be back here tomorrow. So I

did that for a whole week and got

400 signatures on that petition. I

put a covering letter with it and

sent it directly to the owner. Then

about six weeks later, I hadn’t

heard anything so I rang the

council to find out how it was

progressing only to be told he’d

withdrawn his application.

Tell me a bit about your

campaign to get rid of brothels

in the suburbs?

There was an illegal brothel

operating in our street. Our

street’s a residential area in

Phillipstown. Once again, I’m

a bit unorthodox. I recorded

the number plates of the people

visiting there and I posted them

on Facebook. Some people

thought, yeah, great and by some

people I was called all the names

under the sun. But it gained

traction and in the end I worked

very closely with the city council.

They did a couple of raids. Once

they found an illegal worker

hiding in a wardrobe who never

had appropriate paperwork.

They also found a lock box with

in excess of $60,000 in it, which

was obviously handed over to

the taxman. There’s rules around

single owner/operated brothels.

This person was operating it as a

full-on brothel. The neighbours

came to me as someone who is

involved in local body stuff and

someone who gets something

done and asked me what we

could do about it. Council ended

up putting a couple of abatement

notices against them and they

were fined. We ended up getting

OUR PEOPLE

Hawker ‘stands up for the small guy’

•From page 25

How did you begin advocating

for the community?

Well, I’ve lived in this

community for 39 years this year,

and I’ve always been someone

who stands up for the small guy.

Phillipstown is a marginalised

community over the years, and to

some extent the media only used

to report the negative things that

were going on in the community.

But it’s actually a great

community to be a part of. I just

like to stand up for the underdog.

Someone has to take on the fight.

Like I say, the bigger they are it

doesn’t matter to me. When I

had a business, I had issues with

the bank and I took them to

the insurance ombudsman and

I beat them. I was also on the

board of trustees for Phillipstown

School for 18 years. When Hekia

[Parata] started on all the school

closures, the first big rally that

was held in Christchurch in

Hagley Park was put together in

eight days and over 3500 people

turned up to that and I was the

one that organised it. We stood

up for what we believed in for

our schools. So we actually took

the Government to court and

unfortunately, while we won

the battle, the first round and

the court found in our favour

and said they weren’t allowed

to do that, but the Government

turned around and did it again

and unfortunately the school

ended up shutting down. There

has been a bright side to the

school shutting down and that’s

the Phillipstown Community

Hub. It’s run by the Phillipstown

Community Trust, which I’m

one of the founding members

of. Twenty years ago we opened

up our first small community

centre in the corner of the school.

When the school closed we

were asked, did we want to take

over the school site? We know

why they did it, they needed a

babysitter for their property. But

now the reality is it’s more than

just a babysitting proposition. It’s

delivering for many organisations

and communities across the

city. There are up to 50 different

groups who hire and use the

spaces on a regular basis. On

Saturday and Sunday afternoons,

you go down there and you can’t

get a car park, it’s busier than

Colombo St. At the same time,

we’re still only there at the whim

of the ministry so we’re looking

at avenues to try and change that.

We see that the more we can

develop it, work in partnership

with the CDHB and the council,

we can deliver community

services not just for Phillipstown

but all of Christchurch. Because

of our location and proximity

to the central city, it could be a

community hub for the whole city.

What is so important about

Phillipstown and what would

you like to see for its future?

You’ve got to talk about the

proximity of the city. I think

if anybody’s thinking about

where’s an up-and-coming area,

Phillipstown is a prime area to

be buying in. The reality is that

prices compared to some parts

of the city are very reasonable.

From where I live, I can walk into

the city in 20min and 20min the

other way I can walk to Eastgate.

We’ve got all the main bus routes,

and before the earthquake we had

a big rugby stadium. Something

will be there. They should give

the land back at Hagley Park and

set up the cricket ground there.

Re-do the old land at Lancaster

Park, re-do that as a village

green-type cricket venue down

there. That way you can put

floodlights in as well, that’s not

going to be an issue. Whereas I

can see a fight over them wanting

to put in floodlights at Hagley

Park, which I do not agree with.

The purpose of that ground at

Hagley Park was for the Cricket

World Cup, that’s all it should

have been for. They’ve got the ideal

opportunity to redesign Lancaster

Park, not just the stadium site. But

they could have a purpose-built

cricket venue and even put in

some low level buildings for other

sports. They could have all the

international cricket right back

here and it won’t be a burden on

the people and there will be plenty

of parking all around the sports

ground. When we had the school,

we used to open it up for parking

and I was the co-ordinator for

that. Up until we lost it, I had

helped generate over $300,000 for

the school just from car parking.

That car parking service had been

operating since the 1950s. They

started charging two bob a car.

That’s why the school was able

to do so much for the families in

the area. People always ask when

you’re on a board of trustees,

what’s your No 1 objective – the

kids – it always had to be about

the kids. Because we were able to

generate this extra income, we

were able to get the resources and

support the families. This is why

people were dumbfounded when

we were chosen to close. We had

a record second to none in terms

of supporting Maori and Pacific

students.

NEIGHBOURLY

SPIRIT: Wayne

Hawker is one

of the founding

members of the

Phillipstown

Community

Trust.

Tell me a little bit about your

family.

I’ve been married to my wife

Linda for 39 years this year. The

house in Phillipstown was the

first house we moved into. We

have no intention of moving and

even if I wanted to, I probably

couldn’t afford it. I’ve got two

grown up daughters. One lives in

Kaiapoi with her three children

and our other daughter, her

husband and little boy live on the

Gold Coast. But they’re actually

shifting back to Christchurch

permanently in 10 days, so they’ll

be shifting in here for a few weeks

while they get themselves sorted.

What do you do for a job?

I’m a baker by trade, I’ve been

doing that since the day I left

school. Where I’m working now

is pies, we make about 10,000-

12,000 a day. Our company has

the contract for the Z petrol

stations. We have a wide variety

of pies. There are two factories,

one here in Christchurch and one

up in Napier. The Christchurch

factory does the South Island and

Napier does the North Island. We

also export some overseas.

Where did you grow up?

I come from a big family of 10

kids, I’m No 4 on the list. We did,

as you did back in those days,

move a lot. We lived in Papanui,

then in Riccarton, then we were

living in Hornby. From there,

that’s when I left school, got a job

and moved out of home. I went

flatting with some friends for a

while, got married and shifted in

here. I’ve been here ever since.

What are your hobbies?

I’m very much involved in the

sport of netball. This is my 21st

year being involved in netball.

I’m on the committee of the

Cashmere Netball Club, I served

12 years as their president, I was

secretary, coaching co-orindator,

umpire co-ordinator and I’m

currently treasurer of the club.

I’m a qualified umpire and a

coach. I usually wait and see

where they need coaches and step

in. I’m currently coaching four

teams. Because I work nights, my

days are free, which allows me to

do everything I have been doing

over the years.

What other community/

volunteer roles do you have?

I joined my first committee

when I was 17, I’m now almost

62. There’s a few years that I

wasn’t, but I’ve been involved

on the rugby league school boys

committee.

I’ve been on the Akaroa

Trotting Club before they started

doing it automatically, I used

to be a timekeeper for the race

meetings out at Motukarara.

I spent 18 years on the board

of trustees at Phillipstown

School, I’m one of the founding

members of the Phillipstown

Community Centre and trust,

and have 21 years involvment

with the Cashmere Netball

Club as well. I’ve received a bit

of recognition over the years

from Volunteering Canterbury.

I received a community service

award from the Hagley-

Ferrymead Community Board, I

received a volunteer recognition

for my work on the board of

trustees and a service volunteer

award for netball, and I was

named volunteer coach of the

year. While it’s nice to get those

recognitions, that’s not why you

do it.

What motivates you to do all

that work for the community?

You do it knowing you’re

making a difference. I’ve always

been of the attitude, if you ever

want any work done, give it to a

busy person. I enjoy it, otherwise

I wouldn’t do it.

GARDENING ADVICE

Today’s winning question came from

F. Humphreys. Congratulations!

I purchased a property three

Q years ago with a small urban

garden containing several

native and exotic mature trees.

These are under-planted with younger

exotic trees and shrubs, including a tree

pansy, ginkgo and Japanese maple.

I believe the tree pansy is struggling

for enough light and water in its

current position, as I have yet to see it

flower. When would be the best time to

move it, and what position, conditions

and treatment do they prefer?

JUNE BRINGS the start of rain

and cold weather, but there is still

plenty to do in the garden such as

pruning and planting trees.

Here are some top tasks to keep

you busy and warm.

Now is the time to start

planting any pip and stone

fruit trees. New young trees

are now available in garden

centres; ensure you select healthy

looking specimens. Consider

your planting areas carefully,

making sure your young tree has

full exposure to the sun and is

sheltered from strong prevailing

winds.

For existing pip and stone fruit

trees, you can now begin pruning.

Try to keep the tree height under

3m to allow for easier harvesting

and netting of trees where birds

are a problem.

A

WIN a Daltons Rose Care and Planting Pack!

June is also a safe time to plant

new ornamental trees and shrubs.

Planting technique is important

While your specific pansy tree, Cercis canadensis

‘Forest Pansy,’ will grow as an understory plant

among larger trees, it will be much happier in an

open, sunny position that is sheltered from strong

prevailing winds and where the soil is free draining.

Wait until the tree is completely dormant (when all leaves have

dropped), before beginning the transplant process. This can

be carried out quite safely by digging 500mm away from the

trunk and deep enough to not overly damage the root system.

Have the new planting site prepared prior to transplanting,

well dug over with fresh compost incorporated into the

existing soil and drop in a Daltons Premium Planter Tab.

Firm the plant into position and water thoroughly. You may

need to stake the tree until the new roots take hold.

This is also an ideal time to carry out any pruning that

is required. Tree pansies sometimes have ‘crowded

branches’ and some careful pruning can help promote a

more attractive tree.

Read our How to Grow guide for more advice:

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

For growing advice and information on

products visit www.daltons.co.nz

June/July are the best months to plant, relocate and prune roses (once dormant). Choose a

spot in the garden with plenty of sun, that is not crowded by other plants or trees, as good air

flow reduces the risk of rose pests and diseases. Feed with Daltons Premium Rose Fertiliser

for strong, healthy blooms.

We have a prize pack to give away valued at $80 which includes 2 x Garden Time

Planting Mix, Daltons Premium Rose Fertiliser and 2 x Daltons Premium Flower

Bed Mix, plus a pair of comfortable Red Back gardening gloves from Omni Products

PACK!

to allow new plants to thrive

in both climatic extremes for

example wet winters and hot dry

summers. Also incorporate plenty

of compost into the soil when

planting new specimens. Spread

compost around existing trees

and shrubs to give them a boost.

Continue to keep sowing and

planting winter veges such as

broccoli, cabbage cauliflower,

peas and spinach to ensure a

continuous supply.

Protect empty garden beds by

sowing green manure crops for

example lupins.

They protect the top soil from

wind and water erosion and add

organic matter back to the soil

when dug in. Wait until they are

about 15-20cm high then chop up

with a spade as you dig them back

into the soil.

Prune roses when all the

leaves have fallen and apply a

Halfback motoring on with careers

• By Gordon Findlater

FROM HYDRANGEAS to

wagyu, classic cars and beyond

former Crusaders halfback Andy

Ellis does it all.

Ellis made 154 appearances for

the Crusaders between 2006 and

2016. These days he’s still plying

his trade professionally with the

Kobelco Steelers in Japan. However,

he has a number of interests

outside of rugby in New Zealand

keeping him busy.

The 35-year-old recently

returned to Japan after a few

months in New Zealand which

included filming for an upcoming

television series Motoka.

“It’s kind of a mixture between

Country Calendar and Top

Gear,” said Ellis.

“It’s about the cars, but also the

people behind the cars and why

New Zealanders are such bogans.

Why we love our cars so much

and why we have more cars per

capita than any other country.”

During filming, Ellis was

taken for a spin by World Rally

Championship driver Hayden

Paddon and was even reunited

with his former 1968 Ford Fairlane

he bought from Reuben

Thorne.

Ellis got his first taste of

rugby at under-six level with the

Burnside Rugby Club. He stayed

with the club until playing first

XV rugby with Burnside High

School.

In his seventh-form year he

won a six-month scholarship

through the Willows Cricket

Club in Loburn to go to Surrey

in England and play club cricket.

However, his passion for rugby

surpassed his cricket talents and

Ellis concentrated on rugby when

returning to Christchurch with

the Canterbury University club.

“I wanted to go back to Burnside

club, but they had the Tongan

international halfback playing

for them, so I had to move

clubs and that’s when I went and

played for varsity [University],”

said Ellis.

After impressing with the

Canterbury B side Ellis was

selected for the Canterbury

academy. Within 18 months he

found himself making debuts

the New Zealand under-21 side,

•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

Canterbury, the Crusaders and

the All Blacks.

“I was a bit of a rugby head so I

almost idolised guys like Reuben

Thorne, Justin Marshall and

Andrew Mehrtens and then I’m

standing there nude with them,

nude. I know that sounds kind of

weird and creepy, but that is sort

of what it was like,” said Ellis.

The halfback was part of Super

Rugby winning teams in 2006

and 2008. However, what Ellis

enjoyed most from his time with

the Crusaders were the friendships

and having a laugh.

“For me it’s the memories with

my mates on and off the field.

Winning big games, tight games

or must-win games. It’s a great

feeling look your mate in the eye

after a game and have a beer with

him in the sheds,” said Ellis.

During the early days with

the team, some of the laughs

included being forced to play

pranks on more senior players.

“Us young fellas, we’d play

games and whoever lost the

game, we’d come up with a prize

for them . . . so if you lost you

REUNITED: Andy Ellis found

his 1968 Ford Fairlane in

Winton while recently

filming a television series.

had to write a note to Reuben

Thorne and buy him a box of

chocolates. The note would

have to say thanks so much for

making me feel welcome from

whatever your name was. If you

lost you had to put that in his

locker,” he said.

In 2016 Ellis played his

last game for the Crusaders

and embarked on his new

challenge in Japan.

DISTRIBUTOR: Andy Ellis played more than 150 games for the

Crusaders over 11 seasons. ​

“I walked away with a massive

smile on my face and gave everyone

a huge hug and said thanks

so much for the memories. It was

just a great feeling, “said Ellis.

“I didn’t know how long it

would last over here, but sure

enough I got made captain a

couple of years ago and here I am

still chipping away.”

Perks of playing professionally

include long off-season, which

enables players to return home

for up to four months. Another

is the day-time kick-offs.

“I remember thinking this is

what I remember and why I loved

the game so much when I was

playing club footy . . . we’d have a

few beers, a barbecue and go out

for dinner after a game. That’s stuff

you don’t get to do in New Zealand

professional rugby we play so

many night games,” he said.

Ellis believes the upcoming

season in Japan may be his last.

After rugby he plans to invest extra

time in his business interests.

He and his Kobe butcher

business partner kick-started

Waitaha Wagyu. They beef up

wagyu – a Japanese breed of

cattle – on a farm in Chertsey,

north of Ashburton.

“We’re taking the best genetics

and we’re using New Zealand’s

premium feed. All the wheat,

corn and barley is grown on

the farm . . . the end product in

unbelievable,” he said.

The meat is exported and

also used in top New Zealand

restaurant including the George

Hotel’s Pescatore.

Ellis is also helping rural New

Zealander’s removed from fibre

internet connections to access

the Rugby World Cup. He is a

shareholder in Gravity – New

THE NEW Zealand

Breakers look set to return

to Christchurch for their

first ANBL regular season

match since 2003/2004.

The Australian NBL is

currently in the early stages

of drafting its schedule

for the 2019/2020 season.

The Star understands two

dates have been booked

at Horncastle Arena on

November 2 and February

14.

If the Breakers are able

to secure home games on

those dates, it’s expected

they will be played at

Horncastle Arena.

“We’re certainly keen

on being able to bring

a game, if not two, to

Christchurch,” said

Breakers general manager

Dillon Boucher.

Last season the

Auckland-based franchise

took four games to the

regions. They played two

games in Wellington,

which attracted just over

2300 people on both

occasions. They also played

one match in Invercargill,

which attracted over 2600,

and a match in Hamilton,

which had an attendance

of 3100.

The Breakers will hope

SOUTH: The

Breakers are

hopeful of

bringing two

games to

Christchurch

for the

upcoming

ANBL

season. ​

Breakers could play

two games in Chch

FUN FACT – Australian

tenpin bowling receives

more than three times

the amount of high

performance funding than

New Zealand’s fastest

growing sport.

Basketball has become

our second most played

sport at high school and,

since 2013, we’ve had our

own NBA star in the form

of Steven Adams. However,

that appears to mean

nothing when it comes

to funding from High

Performance Sport New

Zealand.

This year, HPSNZ is set

to invest NZ$150,000 into

basketball. This pales in

comparison to our majorly

invested sports – rowing,

cycling and yachting,

which will receive a

combined NZ$13.3

million. Basketball is

also lower than hockey

(NZ$2.15 million), rugby

sevens ($2.1 million),

netball ($1.2 million),

canoe slalom ($450,000),

bowls ($200,000) and even

shooting ($155,000).

Our neighbours over

the ditch have given more

notice to basketball. In the

last financial year, Sport

Australia gave more than

A$7.2 million to basketball,

while tenpin bowling

received A$450,000.

In NZ, sports which

offer Olympic medals

and world titles rule the

roost when it comes to

funding. However, surely

a sport which has shown

rapid growth on a national

and global level should

command more funding at

the elite level?

It’s not like our national

team is there to make up

the numbers. The Tall

Blacks will go into this

year’s FIBA Basketball

World Cup with high

expectations after topping

their Asia qualification

group.

There’s also the chance

of Olympic medals. This

to improve vastly on those

numbers if they are to

bring games to Horncastle

Arena after the Canterbury

Rams broke the NZ NBL

attendance record last

year when they hosted the

Wellington Saints in front

of 6000 fans.

If a Breakers game

is able to be secured

at Horncastle Arena,

Christchurch basketball

fans will be licking their

lips at the prospect of

being able to see Breakers

new American recruit RJ

Hampton who is expected

to be a lottery pick in the

2020 NBA draft.

chance is also set to double

as of next year when 3 x 3

basketball makes its debut

at the Tokyo Olympics.

Just last week the New

Zealand women’s under-18

3 x 3 team won silver at

the under-18 3 x 3 World

Cup. They defeated the

likes of China en route to

the final where they were

beaten 13-18 by the mighty

United States. Surely when

it comes to high performance

funding, a holistic

approach should be taken

to a sport like basketball.

With interest growing,

young player numbers sky

rocketing and the ability to

perform at an international

level, New Zealand

Basketball should feel

robbed when it comes to

how they’re being viewed

from a high performance

funding stand point

compared to other sports.

bowling team of Saints

• By Gordon Findlater

BLACKJACKS GARY Lawson

and Mandy Boyd will headline

Christchurch’s new Bowls3Five

team the Elmwood Saints.

The Saints will take on seven

other clubs from around New

Zealand over eight weeks

of competition in Auckland

starting in October. The

competition will be broadcast

live on Sky Sport three nights a

week.

Last year Lawson was part

of the Sky commentary team

during the competition.

However, with the competition

expanding from six to eight

teams and Sky signing up to

broadcast it for another three,

he’s now opted to put together a

team of his own.

“I went to the [Elmwood]

committee and said I’d like to

put a team together. They were

right behind it, so we put our

proposal together,” said Lawson.

Joining Lawson and Boyd will

be Jan Shirley, Steve Ditford,

Lance Pascoe and Bev Morel

– who is in her late 70s. Two

further team members will be

named before the competition

begins. “It’s great for our sport

having prime time TV three

times a week. We can’t ask for

much more, it’s what the game’s

needed for a long time,” said

Lawson.

The idea for us is to have a

real good crack at the title.”

NEW CHALLENGE: Publican and former bowling world

champion Gary Lawson will lead the Elmwood Saints in the

Bowls3Five competition.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Last year Canterbury rugby

icon Alex Wyllie was part of

the Woodend Jets team with

Na Katae and Jenny Anderson.

However, the team went winless

during the competition which

saw them relegated.

The idea of the whole thing

was to show people who don’t

play bowls that it’s a game

anyone can play . . . I think this

year they’re trying to strengthen

some of the sides to make them

just a little more competitive,”

said Lawson.

The name Elmwood Saints

was inspired by Elmwood Park

Bowling Club’s amalgamation

with St Albans-Merivale.

Lawson hopes the club’s

members and Christchurch

people will rally behind the

team during the competition.

Lawson is currently in Australia

where he will represent the

Blackjacks at the Asia Pacific

Championships on the Gold

Coast from Tuesday to June 28.

ANNEMARIE LIPP has

returned from a two-week trip to

China where she finished second

in the Tour of Zhoushan Island

and got her first ever elite world

ranking points.

Lipp, 19, finished 23rd on the

first stage of the tour. However,

a third place finish on the

second and final stage moved

her to second overall. Fellow

Christchurch rider Elyse Fraser

finished 19th overall, which

helped their Velo Project team

take the overall classification

win.

Finishing second gave Lipp

30 UCI points, which has seen

her go from being unranked

as an elite rider in road cycling

to a world ranking of 237. The

ranking points will be a valuable

asset as Lipp – who has just

moved to elite from under-19 –

looks to pick up bigger rides.

for the year – to get some points

on the board, to try to look at

getting some more stuff overseas.

For the team it helps as well to

try and get more invites for us,”

said Lipp.

The team finished their trip to

China with the Tour of Taiyuan,

which saw Fraser record an

impressive eighth in a gruelling

race. Of the 109 starters, only 42

riders finished.

Most female road races are

limited to a maximum of 140km.

However, the race in Taiyuan saw

them tackle a 171km stage.

“We were riding at altitude

and it was insane, some of the

climbs . . . it’s definitely the

toughest ride I’ve ever done and

I think that goes the same for

quite a lot of my teammates, just

managing to get over the line in

CX-9 integral part

of pamper package

THE OFFER of a pamper

package at Hanmer Springs

was too good to turn down

– hot pools, spa, massage

and an overnight stay all

included.

The car my wife and I

drove to the township in

was a Mazda CX-9 and it fitted

the occasion, it is quiet,

refined and superbly comfortable

on the undulating

North Canterbury roads.

The seven-seat CX-9 is

not new, the latest generation

sports utility vehicle

landed in New Zealand in

2016; however, it has had a

bit of a refresh and a high

grade variant has been

added to the line-up. There

are now three models,

rounding out with what

Mazda label Takami.

Takami is something you

are going to hear a lot more

about from Mazda, it adds

just that little bit of extra

sophistication, sitting over

and above Limited variants

and, as in the CX-9’s

case, add several features

such as nappa leather trim,

rosewood panels and aluminium

trim items.

These sit on top of what

would ordinarily be a wellspecced

vehicle in the first

instance.

Those familiar with the

CX-9 pre-2016 will relate to

the feisty V6 engine which

characterised the line-up.

That has long gone, today’s

CX-9 has a turbocharged

2.5-litre four-cylinder

engine.

If the thought of a

turbocharger has you a

little perplexed, you need

not be concerned. The

turbocharger is low boost,

and the engine, and its

management protocols,

are structured so that the

engine works consistently

in the area of low revs. Sure,

it will meet the 6000rpm

red-line with little provocation;

however, there is

a strong, flat torque curve

which meets its maximum

at 2000rpm (420Nm). Add

in 170kW at just 5000rpm,

the realisation is that the

engine is going to work

tirelessly at low speed.

Power is transferred

through a traditional sixspeed

automatic transmission.

This is another area

Mazda does really well, the

ratios and the shift management

system work well

with the low revving nature

of the engine, the gaps

between gears are filled

through the turbo boost,

while acceleration is clean

and smooth.

The CX-9 is no slouch,

even without working hard

it will still accelerate to

100km/h in 8.8sec, and will

make a highway overtake

MAZDA CX-9 TAKAMI: High grade trim and

specification over and above Limited.

in 4.7sec. On our journey

north I made use of several

overtaking opportunities

and always enjoyed that

solid mid-range punch that

you get from a big fourpotter

and the boost from a

turbocharger.

Interestingly, the CX-9

gets a driver-selectable

sport mode, but even

without the heightened

engine urgency it is still

responsive. I didn’t use

sport mode much, but far

preferred to let the engine

operate at its area of greatest

efficiency.

• Price – Mazda CX-9

Takami, $67,895

• Dimensions –

Length, 5075mm;

width, 1969mm;

height, 1747mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2488cc, 170kW,

420Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.8sec

• Fuel usage –

8.8l/100km

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

The benefit of the engine’s

low revving nature is also

that of fuel economy. It’s

no surprise the CX-9 is

thrifty, Mazda’s SkyActive

programme leans towards

efficiency, and it claims an

8.8-litre per 100km (32mpg)

combined cycle average,

which fits well with the

9.2l/100km (31mpg) readout

during our journey. At

100km/h the engine is turning

over at just 2000rpm

in sixth gear, offering a

7.8l/100 (36mpg) instantaneous

figure.

Considering the CX-9

weighs in rather tubby at

just on two-tonne, these

figures are impressive and

are a credit to the Mazda

engineers who, for a long

time now, have been plugging

away at driveline

efficiency. All CX-9 models

are now four-wheel-drive,

which makes it’s economy

even more remarkable.

The 4WD set-up will

take you off-the-beaten

track without being fully

classified as an off-roader.

However, with a ground

clearance figure of 220mm,

it does have useful off-theseal

capability.

Personally, I see the alldrive

function as a medium

to glean grip on all surfaces,

the CX-9 has an on-road

feel which is quite reassuring,

it feels tightly connected

to the road surface, and

even in the wet there is

surety through the steering

which must be considered a

safety feature. On that subject,

the CX-9 easily qualifies

for a five-star Australasian

New Car Assessment

Program safety rating.

My wife never travels

light, but her suitcase was

no match for the cavernous

cargo area. With the rear

seats folded flat that area

measures up to 810-litres;

if you are seven-up then

that area is compromised to

230-litres, but that matters

little, the CX-9 is very

much a competitive battler

in the large SUV category.

As much as I liked the

detailing in the Takami

grade, I’d be an entry-level

buyer, at $59,695 against

$67,895 you are getting

a lot of value for money.

However, I fully appreciate

that SUV buyers like

all the bells and whistles,

and that’s what you get

with CX-9 Takami, it is a

luxury car at an affordable

price. For the record, the

non-Takami Limited grade

comes in at $65,295.

I have a certain affinity

with Mazda, there’s one in

the Kiddie garage, I like the

way the product is quality

built and the technology

constantly surprises me.

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this week.

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.”

JOE Boswell

of Ed Sheeran at the

the world as a singer

guitarist for the past

10 years.

Joe executes Ed's

songs live just like

the man himself,

using nothing but a

loop pedal. With his

dynamic British singing voice and

rhythmical acoustic guitar playing, it

just made sense for Joe to become a

tribute to an artist he admires.

is show is for all ages, containing

all of your favourite Ed Sheeran songs,

high energy and good vibes to get the

whole family singing, dancing and

smiling. is epic one man show is

part of Joe’s nation wide tour and is

highly recommended and should not

to be missed. Show starts at 7.30pm

Friday night. Tickets $30 at the club

office.
