Skippy used to live next door

Skippy would hear the

Gang membership grows

• By Sophie Cornish

THERE ARE nearly 500

patched gang members and

gang prospects who belong

to some of the world’s most

notorious outlaw gangs living in

Canterbury.

Figures provided to The Star by

police yesterday show that at the

end of April

there were

481 gang

members

and

prospects

in the

province.

They

belong

Greg Newbold

to such

gangs with

chapters

across the globe as the Hells

Angels and Bandidos motorcycle

clubs.

The data comes from a police

National Gang List released

to The Star under the Official

Information Act.

The number has increased

from 370 in December 2016.

Canterbury University

professor and crime expert Greg

Newbold agreed there is an

increasing presence of patched

membership in Canterbury.

There are more gangs in New

Zealand than there was before.

PRESENCE: The Head Hunters Motorcycle Club is one of several gangs in Canterbury.

Numbers of patched members and prospects are rising in the region.

The Rebels, the Hells Angels,

Head Hunters, they have all

made an appearance here in

recent years and also, they are far

more visible you see them around

a lot We are seeing increasing

evidence on streets of patched

motorcycle gang members riding

around,” he said.

The data coincided with the

release of a report yesterday by

police, Our Data – You Asked Us,

the first ever publication which

proactively shares answers to

common data requests made

to police under the Official

Information Act.

It was produced as part of a

strategy to build the public’s trust

and confidence in police, through

increased transparency and

accessibility to police data.

The report shows Canterbury

had the highest amount of

organised crime and drugs

demand and activity in New

Zealand last year. Gangs are a big

part of the illicit drug trade.

There were 1696 of these type

of offences compared to the

second-highest police region,

Counties-Manakau, which had

1621.

The Auckland City region was

the third highest with 1591.

This offending has increased

dramatically for Canterbury

since 2015, when there was only

992 offences of this type.

In a breakdown of these

offences, the most common was

for cannabis, with 8152 offences

recorded nationally last year.

Methamphetamine and

amphetamine-related offences

was the second-highest with 4296

recorded.

‘Other drug offences’ was the

third highest, with 469 nationally

in 2018.

Of these drug offences,

possessing illicit drugs was the

most common, with 6575 of these

offences recorded nationwide

last year. The second highest

with 4698 offences was ‘other

illicit drug offences that were not

elsewhere classified,’ followed by

dealing or trafficking illicit drugs

- 2047.

In the report, police say

organised crime and gangs are

“a corrupting influence that

threaten the well-being and

prosperity of our communities.”

They exploit the most

vulnerable people through

drugs, violence and intimidation.

Organised crime is also often

hidden and therefore the size

and impact may be

underestimated.”

In January, 12 state agencies,

which together are known as the

New Zealand Gang Intelligence

Centre Agencies, approved an

Information Sharing Agreement.

The cross-agency approach

aims to combine intelligence to

reduce gang-related harm.

Professor Newbold said gang

members tend to be older now.

They don’t tend to go for the

youngsters too much anymore,

they are too crazy. It’s not easy to

become a patched member; you

have to prospect for a number of

years. They are not going to take

teenagers in.

They aren’t too interested in

patching people up under the age

of 25,” he said.

alongside organised crime

There are three categories of

gangs and their associates, the

‘hang-abouts’, prospects and

patched members, Professor

Newbold said.

“You get into a gang by

hanging about with them

and doing favours, running

errands . . . Someone who

habitually hangs out with them

would be a formal associate,

they don’t wear a patch, but they

socialise with them and make

friends with them.

Then you might be invited to

be a prospect. Once you become

a prospect you may sometimes

wear a partial patch.

“Once you are a prospect

you are linked in, you have real

serious obligations in relation to

the gang. You have to do all the

running around. You can’t vote

at meetings, but you have to do

as your told, you have to show

total commitment to the gang

and total reliability, staunchness,

enthusiasm and loyalty,” said

Professor Newbold.

A meeting will then be held to

decide if you should become a

patched member.

The meeting has to be

unanimous in deciding that

you are a patched member. You

don’t want to make an enemy

within the gang; you want to get

along with everybody because

King Cobras

they don’t want the gang to be

divided.

“It’s about unity and

brotherhood and fellowship

. . . to be accepted, it’s like

graduation. It’s a huge thing for a

prospect. It’s a big celebration for

everybody.”

Professor Newbold said it

is harder than ever before to

become a gang member.

They are much more

discerning now. In the old

days you had to just be an idiot

and take a beating. Nowadays

they are organised, they don’t

mess with that rubbish, you

have to show you are a person

of intelligence, integrity and

commitment.”

Police take a two-pronged

approach to fight organised crime

and the drug market.

Yesterday’s report says: “On the

supply side, police work alongside

domestic and international

partners to disrupt, deter and

dismantle organised criminal

networks, and officers work to

prevent importers and dealers of

illicit drugs gaining a foothold in

our communities.”

Since July 2017, police

has restrained about $103.5

million worth of cash and

assets through organised crime

and gang investigations, $29

million of which was related to

methamphetamine importation,

manufacturing and dealing.

“On the demand side, police

supports drug users by referring

them to treatment services to

help them break the cycle of

addiction,” the report said.

Council hopeful cleans up shingle

• By Matt Slaughter

CITY COUNCIL hopeful Phil

Mauger says he did not clean up

piles of shingle near the Avon

River to win votes.

The Maugers Contracting boss

and several of his staff used a

digger to clear away shingle in

the car park opposite The Bower

on New Brighton Rd.

The eyesore was highlighted

in Pegasus Post last week and Mr

Mauger decided to clear it after

reading the article.

He is standing in the Burwood

Ward against three-term city

councillor Glenn Livingstone in

October’s local

body elections.

The car park

is in the Coastal

Ward.

Cr Livingstone

said clearing up

Glenn

the shingle was

electioneering.

“I think it is an

election stunt because I’ve never

heard of him doing any work

in the area. He’s suddenly come

from Avonhead (where he lives)

to run for council and out of the

blue takes away some shingle, so

I think it is electioneering, that’s

pretty clear.”

In spite of posting the

fact he did the job on his

election Facebook page,

Mr Mauger said it was not

an election stunt.

He said he did it in honour of

his late mother, Patsy Mauger,

who hated the mess.

“It was really just something

that mum wanted done, we’ll

say three years ago, and I’ve

finally got my act together

and got it done and that was

the only reason I put it on my

Facebook page.” He said he has

given back to the community

before, providing soil for cricket

wickets and purchasing a St John

ambulance last year.

Mr Mauger used the shingle

on a filling job.

City council community parks

manager Al Hardy said the

shingle at the car park site had

been dumped illegally.

There have been reports

of the illegal dumping of

shingle since the car park was

used as a temporary stockpile

site for earthquake repairs. We

are still looking into who is

responsible for the dumping.

However, we’ve identified that

this is not a council operation,

and staff are now obtaining

quotes to reinstate the car

park.”

The city council had planned

to clean up the shingle in July.

But Mr Mauger said it was

“sad” it had taken so long to

clear the car park.

Coastal-Burwood

Community Board chairwoman

Kim Money said some of the

shingle was set to be used for

the construction of the Ōtautahi

Rugby Club car park next to

Bower Park.

However, Mr Mauger said it

was unsuitable and he would get

the club better shingle.

Latham: ‘I’ll rock the boat’

• By Louis Day

DARRELL LATHAM is making

no apologies for “rocking the

council’s boat” and has promised

to continue to do so if elected as a

city councillor.

The Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

will run as an independent

against city councillor Sara Templeton

for the Heathcote seat in

October’s local body elections.

Dr Latham, alongside Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

chairwoman and deputy chairman

Kim Money and Tim Sintes

and city councilor David East,

faced code of conduct complaints

last year over an allegation he

made that city council staff had

tampered with the District Plan.

INDEPENDENT Citizens wants

to start a conversation around

asset sales, not lobby for it.

Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton community

board deputy chairwoman

Helen Broughton wanted to

clarify the group’s position

following an article in The

Star.

The Star indirectly quoted

city councillor Vicki Buck as

saying the group was lobbying for

asset sales.

However, Cr Buck’s direct

Darrell

Latham

This came after a clause that

gives leeway to people in specific

coastal areas, deemed at risk of

flooding, to build and extend

homes was omitted from the

plan.

As a result of their outspoken

comments, Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Minister

Megan Woods approved the city

council’s proposal to amend the

quote was: “They’re looking at

asset sales.”

Mrs Broughton said the

city holds different kinds

of assets and it wanted to

investigate the financial

viability of some of those.

There are the strategic

assets, like the airport,

Lyttelton Port Company,

Orion and Enable,” said

Mrs Broughton, who has

announced she standing for the

community board again.

“We wouldn’t be touching

Templeton

District Plan under section 71 of

the Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Act.

Dr Latham thought it was time

for a change.

He faces strong competition

from Cr Templeton who beat

incumbent Paul Lonsdale in 2016

by 1585 votes to claim the Heathcote

seat.

Mr Lonsdale was the only

city councillor standing for reelection

not to retain his position.

Cr Templeton, who is a member

of the Green Party, will run

as an independent because she

believes party politics does not

belong in local government.

“I have a lot of things that I

want to achieve at council and I

will be working hard to retain my

seat,” she said.

Asset sales under scrutiny

those, those ones are definitely off

the table.”

She said assets like the airport,

bring in return for the city and

benefited ratepayers.

However, other groups of assets

Independent Citizens wanted to

look at to see if it made more financial

sense to sell them, she said.

The two poorly performing assets

in the Strategic Asset list are

City Care and Eco Central.”

Mrs Broughton also said land

and building holdings should be

investigated.

A KEY figure behind the

successful campaign to save

Denton Park has confirmed he

will be standing to represent

Hornby at the city council table.

Former Save Denton Park

chairman Mark

Peters will be

running independently

against

long-term city

councillor Jimmy

Chen in the up-

Mark Peters coming October

elections.

In 2016, Cr Chen secured the

Hornby seat with a 2440 majority

vote over his closest opponent

Sara Harnett-Kikstra.

But Mr Peters said he is not

concerned about running against

Cr Chen, who is currently in his

third term at the city council.

“I stand very much on my track

record – what happened around

Denton Park and my ability to pull

the community together,” he said.

Mr Peters played a key role in

leading the successful campaign

to stop the Hornby Library, Customer

Services and Recreation

and Sport Centre from going to

Denton Park.

Out of the campaign, the

Peters to challenge

for Hornby seat

which Mr Peters is a member of.

Mr Peters believes he has a

good chance at winning against

Cr Chen.

“I take my hat off to Jimmy, he

has responded to the raising of

issues in good stead to get things

done he has worked hard to get

things done.

The October count will be

what counts and if the people

of Hornby want a change from

Jimmy’s representation then they

will vote with their feet and put

in the person they want,” Mr

Peters said.

City councillor Jimmy Chen

welcomed Mr Peter’s bid.

“This is a democratic election,

and it is good the people of Hornby

have a choice,” he said.

Cr Chen, who will be running

under The People’s Choice, said

he has been an effective city

councillor and wants to make

sure Hornby is well-represented.

He said his best achievements

have been keeping the

Hornby mega-facility on budget,

advocating the Hornby Service

Centre has 40 hours per week

and launching the city council’s

As well as Cr Chen, the current

Hornby representatives are

Hedrick grew up listening to her

mother Mattie’s stories about her

long lost fiance, Charlie.

“It’s my mother’s long-told true

story. She would tell me about

her missing fiance she met by

chance.”

Charlie was a United States

Navy diver in WW2. He was

stationed on repair ship, the

USS Rigel, while her mother was

training to be a hairdresser.

They met in May, 1942, on a

tram in Auckland.

Mattie was in her late 20s

and had a day off her study. She

decided to spend it going to the

cinema.

When 23-year-old Charlie

stepped on the tram, he sat next

to her.

“He politely introduced himself

and asked if he could join her at

the movies,” Hedrick said.

“She just felt so drawn to him.”

She said her mother and

Charlie spent a lot of time

together for the next six months

– they went dancing, to the

movies and spent time walking

in the park.

“What I can remember is that

she had many happy outings with

him.”

But the romance was short

lived and his ship was sent back

to the Pacific, bound for New

Caledonia, when Charlie had to

say goodbye to Mattie.

The USS Rigel was in Auckland

from May, with officers working

on Hobson Wharf until

November.

“He had his instructions and he

had to say goodbye in November

1942. Then he began writing to

her.”

After he left, for the next two

years they wrote letters back and

book called

The Rigel

Affair, based

on letters

between her

mother and a

US Navy diver

during WW2.

forth. That chance meeting and

the subsequent 30 letters are the

basis of Hedrick’s new novel, The

Rigel Affair.

Hedrick and her husband

Bud have researched Charlie’s

history with help from the US

Navy archives and his shipmates

Leonard Anderson and Dave

Jessup.

“Both my husband and I

contacted the navy headquarters

in Washington DC and they gave

us a lot of information about the

USS Rigel,” she said.

But Charlie’s navy days began

with a bang.

His first mission before he

came to New Zealand on the ship

was particularly notable. The USS

Rigel sailed to Honolulu, Hawaii,

in July 1941. She was still there

on December 7, 1941, when the

Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.

“It was his first encounter, they

couldn’t believe it,” Hedrick said.

“It was parked at the back

of the battleships so it wasn’t

bombed by the Japanese.”

Sustaining minor damage in

the strike – which killed more

than 2400 Americans and led

to the US formally entering the

war – the USS Rigel then sailed

around the Pacific, repairing

other battle ships.

Mr Hedrick said it was a vital

error on the part of the Japanese.

The Rigel was a huge ship, like

a factory and it had the highest

trained specialists and all the

critical support functions,” he

said.

The fact that the Rigel

came out with minor damage

was a god send for the

Americans.”

After leaving Auckland and

New Caledonia, the USS Rigel

went on to take part in one of

the most savage battles of the

Pacific war – the Guadalcanal

campaign.

romance into a book

The Star Thursday June 20 2019

NEWS 9

IN AUGUST 1942, the Allied

forces, largely US marines,

landed in the Solomon Islands.

The USS Rigel didn’t reach the

islands until November.

It was the first major offensive

by the Allies against the Japanese.

The Japanese, who had

occupied those islands, were

eventually outnumbered and

overwhelmed by the Allies.

“Where the boys were in the

Guadalcanal, it was the most

horrific, nasty island,” Hedrick

said.

Mr Hedrick said Charlie would

have been “hugely” involved in

the fighting.

These guys were trained in

explosives, they had significant

training . . . he went on one

mission where they were put

behind enemy lines to blow up a

submarine and get out.”

After Guadalcanal in 1943, the

USS Rigel travelled to Vanuatu,

Australia and New Guinea.

But while he was in the Pacific,

he kept in constant contact with

Mattie back in New Zealand.

His letters were sporadic,

commenting on what was going

on during the war, as well as

pining for Mattie.

A lot of them were censored

due to the nature of the missions.

The USS Rigel earned four

battle stars by the end of WW2.

She was decommissioned in

1946.

However, Charlie left the USS

Rigel and ended up back in

Rhode Island, New York, at the

end of 1943.

“He sent her an engagement

ring and money for her to join

him,” Hedrick said.

“But there were too many

concerns about her trying to

cross the Pacific when there was a

war going on.”

She said she wrote the story to

give her mother and Charlie’s tale

an ending, which never came for

the pair. Although the book may

differ from what happened in real

life, being fiction based on reality.

“In real life, my mother

believed he was lost at sea,” she

said.

“She waited and waited, but

never heard from him.”

Mattie kept the letters in

a chocolate box, where they

remained until she was killed in a

car accident in the 1980s.

The Rigel Affair is Hedrick’s

second published work, she is

also an artist.

“When I read those 30 letters,

WAR LETTERS:

Mattie Edgar and

Charlie Kincaid’s

love story began

with a chance

meeting in 1942

and led to a

series of love

letters.

they cried out for somebody to do

something,” she said.

“When I listened to my mother,

it all seemed so powerful.”

Hedrick is working on a sequel

– so Charlie and Mattie’s story

isn’t quite finished.

Love letter from Charlie on

June 29, 1943

Darling,

Another letter to let you

know that I’m still alright. I’ve

learned to relax quite a bit

even though things are rather

trying at times. Falling bombs

and shell fire doesn’t bother

me near as much as it used

to. I guess I’ve become sort

of used to it and now about

the only thing I worry about

is when you and I’ll be able

to see each other. Somebody

sure talked out of turn when

we were down south because

the Japs know where we are at

and what we are up to. About

the only good station we can

pick up is Radio Tokyo, and the

other night Tojo made a speech

beamed at us. Here’s what he

said, “Welcome USS Rigel to

CENSORED Bay. We hope you

enjoy stay while there. Anyhow

it will be a short one for we are

coming in and taking over July

1.” Personally I’m not worrying

a hell of a lot about anything

he says, and I still think we can

shoot the pants off of the Japs

anytime they feel like mustering

around. If you can go over there

go to Brisbane and I’m sure

you’ll find everything the same

as the time before you and I said

goodbye.

Love always, Kinky.

Bullets hit Riko; list grows

• By Sophie Cornish

ANOTHER CAT has been

shot with a rifle in a growing

residential area on the outskirts

of Christchurch.

SPCA spokeswoman Jessie

Gilchrist said three shootings

in the past three years in the

Prebbleton area suggest the incidents

may be linked.

Hodgens Rd residents Cody

Hayton and Emilia Petronelli

have paid more than $2500 in vet

bills to treat Riko, who was shot

multiple times on June 10.

The couple arrived home from

work to find him completely

covered in blood.

“He had a wound on the side

of his stomach, his right paw

was really badly mangled and

his eye was probably the worst

of the three injuries,” said Miss

Petronelli.

During surgery, vets found a

puncture in Riko’s eyeball and

his eye had to be removed.

Judging by the bullet

extracted, they were told the

weapon was most likely a .22

calibre rifle or bigger.

SPCA and police are investigating

the incident.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said

a person had been spoken to in

relation to the shootings but no

one has been charged yet.

Said SPCA spokeswoman

Jessie Gilchrist: “There were

three jobs in Prebbleton reported

in the last three years. The

locations of these incidents could

possibly suggest that there is a

link.”

Meanwhile, Adam Leatherhead

said his family, including

his two daughters, age 11 and

13-years-old, are still impacted

by the loss of their cat, Midnight,

after he was shot on two separate

occasions. In January 2017, twoyear-old

Midnight was shot with

a .22 calibre bullet and his back

left leg was amputated

Almost a year later, Midnight

was shot again, this time in his

front left leg. He had to be put

down.

“I don’t think the kids ever got

over it . . . it’s had a real impact

said Mr Leatherhead.

Mr Leatherhead said the vet

bills as a result of the shootings

were close to $2000.

Also living nearby is Kirsty

Sewell and her family, whose

cat Kylo was shot in the leg in

November.

“He’s still got his leg and he is

absolutely fine. It cost $4000 in

vet bills though.”

“It’s horrible, I wish they

would catch whoever it is. I’d

like them to pay for the vet bills,”

said Mrs Sewell.

Support for

intersection

traffic lights

• By Jess Gibson

MORE THAN half of the 1085

submissions on the Harewood,

Breens and Gardiners Rds

intersection supported the $1.2

million plan for traffic lights.

But if the option is approved,

the city council will need to find

$800,000 to fund it. A proposal

with two options to upgrade

safety at the intersection

brought in the highest amount

of feedback from May 6 to June

10 of any of the city council’s

consultations in the past 12

months.

Head of transport Richard

Osborne said staff are still in

the process of analysing the

submissions on the intersection

but confirmed the majority

supported the traffic lights

option. Mr Osborne said if the

lights are approved, the city

council will need to allocate

additional funding to the project

as part of the Annual Plan and

Long Term Plan process.

The other option, which is

preferred by the city council,

would make both Gardiners

and Breens Rds left turn in

and left turn out only, and

include a traffic-light controlled

pedestrian crossing – which

would cost $400,000.

AN INVESTIGATION into the

The report, being conducted by

Akaroa Harbour is not classed

as an operational port.

Mr Stronach said any ship

that is more than 40,000 gross

tonnes – of which 90 per cent of

the cruise ships visiting Akaroa

are – is likely to cause a seabed

disturbance at least 10 times the

permitted level, per visit.

This would be a breach of

section 338 of the Resource

Management Act.

Every person who commits

an offence under the section

could be sent to prison for up

to two years or fined $300,000.

Organisations can be fined up to

$600,000.

Mr Dilley said ECan

However, he said without any

evidence, enforcement action

was not warranted.

Keeping bubs out

of the dog biscuits

IT’S BEEN more than

a week of looking after

bubs on my own while

house-sitting for my mum

and step-dad at Waikuku

Beach.

Hanging out in my

hometown has been great

– picnics in the forest,

walks along the beach with

the dogs, and spending

hours on the playground.

We’ve managed to avoid

any major catastrophes.

The only thing that has

given me any serious

concern is Vittoria’s new

found love of dog biscuits.

Totally obsessed;

favourite snack territory.

And I really do mean she

loves them. If I grab them

off her or fish one out of

her mouth, it elicits some

serious screaming.

I’ve told friends who

have older kids and they’re

all “oh, that’s normal”. But

how normal is it really to

grab a handful of food,

designed for a canine,

and run into the corner to

munch on it?

She’s gotten a little wise

to my dislike of her new

snaking habits and lures

me into a false sense

of security by sweetly

grabbing some and feeding

it to the dogs Petal and Po.

It’s really cute, she giggles

and the dogs love it too.

My heart melts and I

look away for two seconds.

When I turn back, she’s

bolting into a hiding spot

with some for herself.

Oh well, by the time

you’re reading this, we’ll

likely be home, so she

won’t be eating them for

much longer.

I think I’ve managed

pretty well running

completely solo, but I did

experience my first real

‘I’m over this’ kind of day

on Monday.

THE WOOLSTORE in

Lyttelton could be close to

being filled.

“We are very close to

being able to publicly

announce the plans for the

Woolstore, which will be

an exciting development for

Lyttelton,” said Lyttelton

Port Company marketing

manager Simon Munt.

However, Lyttelton

residents are not

convinced. Mr Munt said

After a big session at

the playground, minding

Vittoria and both dogs, I

was sure she’d have a nap.

However, outside of car

rides, Vittoria has not had

any day naps over the last

week. I’m not complaining;

she goes to bed easy, sleeps

well and wakes up late

because of it. But I really

felt like I needed that break

on Monday.

I was just hanging out

for her bed time. I used

the animated adventures

of Pingu as a babysitter to

get me through and allow

announcement in January.

has it been years?”

announcement so I will

believe it when I see it.”

Trump’s Trade Bullying

Will Not Triumph

The US-China trade frictions

have drawn worldwide attention

as US President Donald Trump

threatened to raise tariff on

another US$300 billion worth of

Chinese goods exported to US.

China has become a prominent

target among numerous targets

worldwide for US trade bullying

policy up.

The Trump administration,

since taking office, has threatened

additional tariffs and other

measures, and provoked frequent

trade frictions with its major

trading partners including its

close allies. Tariffs on steel and

aluminium have been raised

against countries like New

Zealand, Germany, India and

Japan. The US unilateral measures

have undermined the authority of

WTO and its dispute settlement

system, and exposed the

multilateral trading system and

international trade order to peril.

The Trump administration

imposed “long-arm jurisdiction”

on and sanctions against Huawei

and other Chinese companies

on fabricated basis of national

security, and even openly

pressured other governments

into excluding Huawei from their

domestic markets. As Frederic

Pierucci, a former Alstom

manager, revealed in his new book

The American Trap”, the US

government used similar coercive

tactics through state power

against the French transnational

enterprise, a major competitor of

GE, several years ago. Huawei’s

leading position in 5G technology

and advantages over American

telecom companies in overseas

market made Huawei prey to US

trade coercion.

Ironically, the trade war has

not “made America great

again” but boomeranged the

US economy. Production

costs for US companies will

be significantly raised as many

American manufacturers depend

on China’s raw materials and

intermediary goods. American

consumers will also have to bear

increased living cost. According

to a recent research report

released by Trade Partnership,

an American think-tank, if US

imposes 25% additional tariffs

on all imported Chinese goods,

US GDP will decrease by 1.01%

with 2.16 million job losses and

additional annual burden of

US$ 2294 on an average family.

American investors in China will

suffer from “collateral damage”

with bulk of their products

exported back to US. Imposing

increased tariff might succeed

in forcing some American

enterprises out of China, but they

would probably resettle in other

emerging economies with lower

production cost rather than bring

jobs back to US.

In fact, using bullying

methods like increasing tariff

on imports from China and

sanctioning Huawei is to

achieve the purpose of “winner

takes all” for the Trump

administration in trade deal,

but the US has chosen the

wrong target this time. The

US pressuring tactics might

have worked on some past

occasions, but it would not

work on China. China, as the

world’s second largest economy,

has become the largest trading

partner of more than 120

countries. Moreover, China has

a huge domestic market with

nearly 1.4 billion people, one

fifth of world’s total population.

There are bottom lines which

China could not compromise in

any consultations, and the days

China was forced into “unequal

treaties” are long gone. The

principle of win-win does not

mean US winning twice. The

only way to resolve China-US

trade frictions is to return to

negotiation table for a deal on the

basis of respect and trust, mutual

benefit and win-win. However, if

the US side chooses to go ahead

with tough measures, China has

no choice but to fight to the end.

Canty bands get shot at Rockquest finals

YOUNG, SUCCESSFUL

& on the move

The Star continues showcasing the city’s

successful young people. If you have a story to tell,

email jess.gibson@starmedia.kiwi

A THEATRICAL performance

has won a Middleton Grange

School band the Canterbury

regional Smokefreerockquest

final.

The Sneaky Caribbean Monk

Seal’s lead guitarist Jonathan

Manning was ecstatic with his

band’s win, which he attributed

to their unique stage presence

and genre fusion.

Combining blues guitar and

classic old school rock influences,

the band placed an emphasis

on creating a full on-stage

experience for the audience.

“We love very theatrical

performances and it’s natural

for all of our personalities to be

more eccentric on stage,” said

Jonathan.

“You can go up there and

play music and stand still, but

we want to be more than that.

It’s about being in the moment,

revival, energy, and loving rock

’n’ roll,” he said.

The other members of The

Sneaky Caribbean Monk Seals

are Yannik Turner (vocals),

David Archer (bass) and Abel

Carson (drums).

Second place in the band

category went to Indigo State

from Burnside High School and

Hagley Community College,

with members Keira Jonkers (vocals)

Israel Soper (bass) Kayne

Child (lead guitar) and Lucas

Royds (drums).

They join Canterbury solo-duo

winners There is a Tuesday Between

a Monday and a Wednesday

from St Margaret’s College

and Christchurch Girls’ High

School (first place) and Amber

Williams from Cashmere High

School (second place).

The Canterbury winners now

have the opportunity to submit

a video of their original material

for selection as one of the top-10

national finalists to play at the

Bruce Mason Centre in Auckland

on September 14.

For Smokefreerockquest

founder and director Glenn

Common, the opportunities,

which could come after the competitions

was reflected by a music

industry full of past participants.

“It’s fascinating for us to

look back at success stories like

Kimbra, Marlon Williams and

Broods where we could see the

star factor right back at the

regional level,” he said.

“Each event gives a new cohort

of bands the opportunity to

take their obsession with music

and develop the organisational

and stagecraft skills that will

help them become another Kiwi

music success.”

Thank you for

helping your

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

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.

OUR PEOPLE – JENNYA CHAROMOVA

Looking to checkmate her

Former New

Zealand women’s

chess champion

Jennya Charomova

is challenging chess

players to take her on

in simultaneous chess.

On June 29 at the New

Brighton Library, the

Russian-born chess

fanatic will play 12

people at once. Sophie

Cornish finds out more

Tell me about growing up in

Russia and why you moved to

New Zealand?

There were a lot of places I

grew up in Russia as we moved

a lot. But, I was born in Yuzhno-

Sakhalinsk and mainly lived in

Vladivostok. Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk

is a city on Sakhalin Island, in

eastern Russia and Vladivostok

is a major port city in Russia,

near the borders with China and

North Korea. We were travelling

on a boat and we didn’t plan

to come to New Zealand to be

honest, it just happened. We were

doing an expedition around the

world. I was nine-years-old and it

was supposed to be for one year.

My dad is a navigator on boats

and my mum was a geologist,

so we did a lot of travelling. It

STRATEGIC: Jennya Charomova balances a life of chess with her studies at Canterbury

University.

PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER

wasn’t their first expedition. We

were travelling from Portugal to

Brazil. We arrived in Australia

and the boat had some technical

problems, so unfortunately

we were unable to finish this

expedition, which was supposed

to go all around the world. We

lived in Australia until I was

11-years-old, then came to New

Zealand. I lived in Auckland for a

really long time, until I was about

23 or 24-years-old. New Zealand

is a beautiful country and when

my mum came here she really

liked it, so that’s why we stayed. I

finished high school at Auckland

International College and went

to the University of Auckland.

I completed a degree in genetic

engineering and environmental

science. I went to live in Moscow

after I finished my study and

only recently returned to New

Zealand to do a masters of

speech therapy at Canterbury

University.

When did you first get

involved in chess and why?

When I was very young,

probably around two-and-a-half

years old. My parents loved

chess. My father taught me the

names of the pieces when I was

only one-year-old. We use to

have the pieces lying around

and I was just exposed to them,

I guess. I played my first game

as a toddler against my mother.

My parents would take turns at

taking me to tournaments, it was

a family thing. From what my

mum has told me, when I was

small and I started to really enjoy

it, some of my mum’s friends

would come over for dinner and

we would play chess together. I

would start to win against them.

I was three-and-a-half-years-old

at that stage. A lot of Russian

parents take their children to

clubs, it’s a part of the culture,

so I went to chess club. Chess is

quite popular in Russia, I played

in various tournaments there

and in Australia while growing

up. Since then I have played in

several big tournaments – 2001

World Chess Festival in Spain,

2002 The 35th Chess Olympiad

Bled Slovenia, 2003 World Youth

Championship Greece, 2004

36th Women’s Olympiad Spanish

island of Majorca and in 2005, I

won the Women’s Championship

opponents 12-fold

What’s something about the

sport of chess that most people

won’t know?

I recently read an article which

did a study about chess and shortterm

memory, which proved that

chess can improve it. Having

better short-term memory can

lead to having better long-term

memory, both of which can give

you an advantage when you are

playing, because you can hold a

lot of different positions in your

mind. When you make a move,

the positions change, so you have

to retain a lot more information

for a short amount of time and

make difficult calculations.

You have been doing events

around the country that

involve playing 12 games of

chess against 12 different

people, simultaneously. How

challenging is this?

I wouldn’t say it is a lot more

challenging but it is definitely

a different type of experience. I

actually really enjoyed it because

you have a lot of different

positions that you have to think

about. You have to switch your

brain quite quickly. I hadn’t

played it in a wee while and

getting back into it by doing that

was quite an experience. I started

doing it in Auckland when I

was studying, it was part of a

fundraiser. I have done it once

before here in Christchurch too.

I don’t know how often it will

happen, but I am doing it again

next week and in future we are

going to do it again but with

three of us playing at the same

time.

What are your thoughts

on the debate against people

calling chess a ‘sport?’ Do you

have an opinion?

It is definitely a sport because it

requires maximum concentration

and focus. You can’t make a

mistake. If you aren’t focused or

if you are tired, you could easily

lose the game. So when you play

at that level, I definitely think it

is. The top chess players also do

a lot of preparation, they have

to be physically fit and eat well.

It is a mental game but you have

to be very physically prepared

as well, to sit for three or four

hours and be focused. There is

a lot more than just playing the

game. Sometimes I will go for

a walk before the game to keep

me relaxed and focused. It was

something I picked up in Russia

from my coach. Chess is about

memory and concentration. We

use to have poetry and writing

nights with the club I was with,

because the creative side can be

very strong in some chess

players.

Tell me about what you

studying – I understand it is a

lot different to chess.

I am studying my masters in

speech therapy. I was working

in Russia as an English teacher

for three years and I realised

that I like working with speech

and it really interested me.

I also realised a lot of kids

have problems with language

development and behaviour.

When I spoke with teachers

they said this was an increasing

problem and that every year there

seems to be more students with

speech issues. The work I am

doing at the moment is general,

it’s all parts of speech. After I

finish I can choose an area I am

interested in and develop that

further. At the moment I’m not

sure if that is what I will do, I am

having trouble trying to decide

what to do. I still have two years

to go. I am interested in the

development of speech. A lot of

countries have many different

ways of dealing with speech

problems so I want to travel to

learn about this.

Bid to stop

‘cruising’ on

Deans Ave

delayed

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

HELEN BROUGHTON’S bid

to crack down on anti-social

behaviour on Deans Ave has

been pushed back again.

The Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton deputy chairwoman

withdrew her formal motion

calling for increased police

enforcement of “cruising

behaviour” on the avenue.

Mrs Broughton opted to use

the term “cruising behaviour”

after board chairman Mike Mora

raised concerns over calling

them “boy racers”.

At last week’s board meeting,

Mrs Broughton removed her

motion so it could be re-worded

to allow the board to talk to

police directly about cruising

behaviour in the area, as well

as security concerns once the

police presence around Al Noor

mosque is reduced.

In her original motion, Mrs

Broughton only asked the

board to write to police about

its concerns over cruising

behaviour.

Her amended motion will now

be brought back for the board

to discuss at its next meeting on

June 26.

news online at www.star.kiwi

Readers respond to last week’s article about a proposed rates reduction for

people living in the central city in a bid to boost the area’s population

Rebecca Phillips – My

husband and I have thought

seriously about selling our large

family home and moving into

the city into an apartment.

Trouble is, there are just so

many one-bedroom apartments

being constructed and the vast

majority of CBD apartments

don’t have any car parks. We

could become a ‘one car’ couple,

but as residents we are not

prepared to be a ‘no car’ couple.

If the city council wants people

to live in the city, forget about

a rates reduction, it needs to

stop approving one-bedroom

apartments with no car parks.

I see that Matthew Horncastle,

of Williams Corporation, is

keen to support any incentive.

Well, of course he is, given that

he will benefit financially from

people buying his one bedroom,

no car park apartments. Surely

there’s a limit to the amount

of investors who will purchase

these for Airbnb purposes? So

forget about a rates reduction.

How about some commonsense

by the city council urban

planners if they truly want to

attract people like myself into

the city?

Michael J Brathwaite

– I think any preferential

treatment of one sector of our

population is grossly unfair to

the rest of us. As your article

pointed out, we don’t have an

‘apartment culture’ here, and

the 30km/h speed limit is a

major disincentive. I won’t

even drive into the central

city anymore, and certainly

wouldn’t live there, and it seems

to me that throwing money at

the problem is unlikely to help.

My understanding is that after

the earthquakes, city council

and CERA got together behind

closed doors and concocted a

plan to keep cars out of the city

by making it too unpleasant to

drive or park there. Now they

want people to live there, but it

doesn’t seem to have occurred

to them that most people

have cars, and they’ve made it

abundantly clear that cars are

not welcome in the central city.

Steve Jelley – If city

council was generous enough

with ratepayers’ money to give

the developers a sweetheart deal

on development contributions,

why wouldn’t they want to now

subsidise their rates? Heck, why

not also pay for the removal

truck? It is easy to spend

someone else’s money.

TODAY IS World Refugee Day

and this year we are all being

asked to walk in the shoes of

refugees.

The United Nations asks that

we record the distances we

walk, run and cycle so around

the world we can demonstrate

the significance of the distance

refugees cover each year to reach

safety – more than 1.6 billion

kilometres in a year.

It’s hard to believe these are the

actual distances, but when you

think about the number of people

who are affected by conflict and

the distances they need to travel

to get away from the violence, it

certainly adds up.

The way we came together

as a city after the atrocity of

March 15 shows we understand

the importance of standing in

solidarity with our communities.

The symbolism of walking

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

Find out what it’s

like to ‘walk in the

shoes of refugees’

in solidarity with people who

have had to flee violence and

persecution represents solidarity

on a global scale.

We have offered people

refuge here in our city and, sadly,

many of those who were taken

from us in the attacks on the

mosques originally came here as

refugees.

We need to always remember

that the root problems are war

and hatred, not the people who

flee. Sadly refugees are usually

among the first victims of

terrorism.

As UN secretary-general

António Guterres said: “I’ve met

so many who have lost so much.

But they never lose their dreams

for their children or their desire

to better our world. They ask for

little in return – only our support

in their time of greatest need.”

We can all do that.

The Music of Andrew Lloyd

Webber in Concert

Produced by Showbiz

Christchurch

Devised by Andrew Lloyd

Webber

Reviewed by Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

THE COMPOSER who has

had one of the biggest impacts

in musical theatre history has

been celebrated in a slick concert

featuring an enormous cast.

Andrew Lloyd Webber may

be a polarising figure, but there

is no denying he has driven a

blockbuster career – as well as

opening up

countless career

opportunities

for those in

the performing

arts industry.

That is

why Showbiz

Andrew Lloyd

Christchurch’s

decision to

build a concert

Webber ​

around Lloyd Webber’s greatest

musical triumphs has been a

success.

The Music of Andrew Lloyd

Webber in Concert was an

enchanting production to watch

over the weekend – with the

show easily flowing in a kaleidoscope

of bright, dazzling acts.

Each act showcased between

one to three songs from Lloyd

SUPERB: Ashley Brown was

a stand-out performer.

Webber’s arguably best musicals

including The Phantom of the

Opera, Cats, Evita and Jesus

Christ Superstar.

What I loved most about

this show was while there were

featured soloists – there was no

starring role. Everyone got to

have a moment in the spotlight

and every performer looked like

they were genuinely having fun

on the stage.

A huge proportion of the city’s

performing arts community was

involved in this concert – the

show was diverse in how it had a

large singing and dance chorus,

orchestra, children’s chorus and

soloists.

It is was difficult to pick a

stand-out performance from

such a high calibre of acts.

But Donna Alley stole the

THEATRE/ARTS 25

her role as the vain, over-the-top

Carlotta and I was blown away

by the scale of her crystal-clear,

powerful voice.

James Foster’s eerie stage presence

and beautifully authoritative

voice made him perfect for

the role of The Phantom.

Music of the Night was a bewitching

performance to watch

– I was completely drawn in by

Foster’s compelling singing and

the way the music was elegantly

executed by the orchestra.

The other joy of the show was

the opportunity to discover

some of Lloyd Webber’s musical

gems from his less well-known

productions.

For me, this was Theme and

Variations 1-4, from Song and

Dance. The song was a rocked-up

piece of music based on Italian

violinist Niccolò Paganini’s Caprice

No. 24 In A Minor.

Ashley Brown was superb in

how he played the leading cello

role with confidence and poise.

The performance was combined

with a clever, foot-tapping dance

choreography which was a treasure

to watch.

The 30 members of the dance

chorus deserve a mention, they

were graceful, in-sync and professional,

particularly in Jellicle

Songs for Jellicle Cats.

Showbiz Christchurch never

fails to impress, and its Lloyd

Webber concert has been

another immense success. If it

is anything to go by, I can only

imagine how good its next show

– Miss Saigon – will be later this

year.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

PERFECT ROAST BEEF

Ingredients

1.5kg topside of beef

2 medium onions

2 carrots

2 sticks celery

1 bulb of garlic

1 bunch of mixed fresh herbs –

thyme, rosemary, bay, sage

Olive oil

Directions

Remove the beef from the

fridge 30min before you want to

cook it to let it come up to room

temperature. Preheat the oven to

240 deg C.

Wash and roughly chop the

vegetables – there’s no need

to peel them. Break the garlic

bulb into cloves, leaving them

unpeeled.

Pile all the vegetables, garlic

and herbs into the middle of a

large roasting tray and drizzle

with oil.

Drizzle the beef with oil and

season well with sea salt and

black pepper, then rub all over

the meat. Place the beef on top of

the vegetables.

Place the tray in the oven, then

turn the heat down immediately

to 200 deg C and cook for one

hour for medium beef. If you

prefer it medium-rare, take it out

5-10min earlier. For well done,

leave it in for another 10-15min.

If you’re doing roast potatoes

and vegetables, this is the time to

crack on with them – get them

into the oven for the last 45min

of cooking.

Baste the beef halfway through

look dry, add a splash of water

to the tray to stop them from

cooked to your liking, take the

tray out of the oven and transfer

the beef to a board to rest for

15min or so. Cover it with a layer

of tin foil and a tea towel and

ROAST PORK SHOULDER

Ingredients

2-2.5kg half pork shoulder,

boned and rolled

Olive oil

Sea salt

3 white onions, halved

2 carrots

For the apple sauce:

3 bramley apples, peeled, cored

and diced

1 sprig rosemary, finely chopped

Demerara sugar, to taste

Directions

Preheat the oven to 220 deg C.

Using a very sharp knife (or

a clean stanley knife) score the

skin all over, taking care not to

cut through to the meat (you

can ask your butcher to do this

for you if you like).

Drizzle the pork skin with a

little olive oil and then massage

one tablespoon of salt into the

skin forcing it into the score

marks. Put the onions and

carrots into a large roasting tin,

drizzle with olive oil and shake

around to coat. Sit the pork on

top of the vegetables and place

into the preheated oven. Cook

for 30min, or until the crackling

is crisp and golden-brown.

FRIDAY TO

Turn the oven down to 180

deg C. Cook for 30min per

500g, or until the pork is cooked

through (the juices will run

clear when pierced with a knife.

Alternatively insert a skewer

into the middle of the thickest

part of the meat, remove and

feel the skewer. The meat is

cooked if the skewer it hot to

touch.)

To be honest, it’s hard to

overcook pork shoulder, so feel

free to give it longer.

While the pork is cooking,

make the apple sauce. Put

the apples into a pan with the

rosemary and 50ml of water.

Cover and cook over a medium

low heat for 5min, or until the

apples have started to break

down a little and soften.

Add one to two tablespoons

of sugar and cook for a further

5min, stirring occasionally until

the apples are collapsed but

there is still a little texture to the

apple sauce. Taste and adjust the

sweetness if necessary. Leave to

cool to room temperature.

Once the pork is cooked,

remove from the oven and leave

to rest, covered in foil, for 15-

20min.

GARDENING

news online at www.star.kiwi

Strawberries can be grown anywhere

STRAWBERRIES are one of the

most popular edible plants to

have in the garden. And it’s not

hard to work out why.

They’re tasty of course. But

they have a couple of other great

factors going for them. They can

be eaten straight from the garden

– always a plus.

But more importantly they can

be grown just about anywhere. It

really doesn’t matter what size of

garden you have or whether you

even have a garden at all.

Strawberries can be grown in

almost anything – a cut off drainpipe,

a planter box, in the garden

bed, in a hanging planter and

more.

As long as they can see the sun,

and your garden bed or ‘planter’

is well-drained, you can expect

great growing results.

Strawberries are best planted in

June or July. Or, if you live down

south, probably best to wait until

August when the soil is a little

warmer.

As with all plants, soil preparation

is important. Strawberries

prefer a soil pH of 5.8 to 6.2,

which is slightly acid, so you

shouldn’t need any lime.

You can enrich the strawberry

bed by digging in potash and

composted vegetable matter to

provide a boost of food for the

Tackle pruning when your roses are dormant

THERE IS more written about

pruning roses than almost any

other aspect of their care.

Yet, why do we prune our

roses?

Here are a few key reasons:

Encourage new growth and

more blooms. Maintain the

health of the rose by removing

old wood, improve air circulation

within the bush.

Maintain a specific shape,

especially for climbing and pillar

roses, and those that are pegged

down.

Not all roses have the same

need to be pruned, some just

need an annual “going over’’

after flowering to remove the

dead wood. Other roses, most

plants as they grow, and fowl

manure to reduce the pH.

Planting in a pot or container?

Use a top quality potting mix and

for an extra boost of goodness

apply a liquid fertiliser to the mix.

Before planting raise your garden

bed by mounding the soil.

This will encourage circulation,

drainage and can add depth to

shallow soil.

Plant your seedlings around

the edges of your garden or pots

to encourage the strawberries

notably the highly bred hybrid

teas and floribundas, need regular

pruning. If you garden on a

light, sandy soil then prune your

roses only lightly as they will not

be able to support the vigorous

new growth that hard pruning

encourages.

The time to tackle pruning

is in the winter while they are

dormant, before they burst into

growth. In some areas of New

Zealand, and in some seasons,

there may seem to be almost

no period of dormancy and so

you must choose your moment

carefully. So do not prune when

there is still a risk of severe frost,

as any new growth will be frosted

and die back.

to hang over the sides and prevent

the fruit from touching the

ground and rotting.

Dig a hole 10cm deep and place

the seedling inside. A deep hole is

required to give the roots plenty of

room to spread out and grow but be

careful not to bury the plant. Pack

the soil firmly around each seedling.

Plant each seedling around 300mm

apart from the next.

Once planted it’s important

to keep them well watered at all

times. When the weather starts to

You will have to cut back to

the next bud, reducing the plant

further.

Most bush roses flower on the

current year’s growth.

A hard prune will produce

more vigorous new growth.

Remove the oldest cane on the

plant; this keeps the bush fresh

and vigorous.

Then reduce thick, strong

stems by about half their height.

Thin canes need to be cut back to

one-third their height.

Try to keep the centre of the

plant open. A mess of spindly,

twiggy growth in the middle

of the plant restricts light and

air circulation, encouraging disease.

TASTE:

Strawberries

should be

planted in

June.

warm up during spring it’s a good

idea to surround the seedlings

with peastraw or newspaper to

help keep away weeds and retain

water. The more moisture they

get the juicier the fruit will be.

Place netting or wire over you

plants when they begin to produce

fruit. This will block out

birds and ensure you get to eat

the strawberries yourself.

In spring, add another dose

of general fertiliser to your

strawberries to encourage sturdier

plants that are more disease

resistant heading in to the warmer

months.

Then sit back and wait till

Christmas to enjoy the sweet sensation

of your own hard work.

Once your strawberry harvest

has finished, if you’re using

hanging baskets or similar

containers, it’s best to pull out

your strawberries and plant new

ones after a year to freshen up

the soil (don’t forget to use new

potting mix).

But if they’re in your garden,

your strawberry patch will last

a couple of years. After this you

can simply use a combination of

your runners and new plants to

create a new patch.

SHAPE: Pruning your roses will encourage new growth.

Thank you to our awesome

volunteers!

Volunteering Day working together to plant 250 Mikimiki, Hebe Strictissima, Jointed Rush,

Sea Rush and Knobby Club Rush plants at Charlesworth Reserve.

Right: The generosity of donations of used curtains to the curtain bank is matched by the

generosity of volunteers who help to sort, measure and pack curtains before they go to their

new homes. A team from Ravensdown gave a hand at the curtain bank earlier this year.

We sincerely thank our

wonderful volunteers for

their valuable contribution

to Orana Wildlife Park.

We are currently seeking

passionate people

National Volunteer Week, running from 16 to 22 June, celebrates

the collective contribution of the 1.2 million volunteers who enrich

Aotearoa New Zealand. This year’s theme is “Whiria te tangata –

weaving the people together”. Volunteering, Mahi Aroha and social

action weave people and communities together.

Volunteering is a powerful movement. When we volunteer our

time we send a message about what is important in our communities.

This National Volunteer Week we celebrate the diversity of

volunteers and volunteering, Mahi Aroha and social action in

Aotearoa. We celebrate everyone who creates connections in their

own communities from the Marae to the Mosque, from our biggest

cities to our most remote communities. We celebrate everyone who

volunteers in times of crisis, in times of healing and everyone who

makes time and space to walk alongside others.

Now more than ever, as a volunteering community we commit to

manaakitanga and whakawhanaungatanga. We commit to caring,

and to building meaningful, enduring and inclusive relationships

across our differences, and to make space for diverse voices.

We can create a diverse, inclusive, caring, kind and connected

future. Volunteering makes a difference – for the community

and the volunteer. Find out how you can make a difference in

Canterbury by checking out over 250 available volunteer roles at

www.volcanmatch.com.

Volunteering

Changes Lives.

With over 230 volunteer roles

to choose from, we’re here to

help you make a difference,

so together we can eliminate

poverty, save the environment

and make Canterbury a

great place to live.

GirlGuiding NZ is a non-profit organisation where girls can

be girls, where they will discover their passions, contribute to

their communities and form friendships in a safe and positive

environment.

Our aim is that all girls and young women are valued, inspired

and empowered to take action to change their world. We do this

by enabling girls and young women to develop into confident,

adventurous and empowered leaders in their communities.

Our volunteers are at the forefront of this, giving their time and

skills for the benefit of girls in their communities.

Whether teaching them about other cultures through games,

or exploring the outdoors while camping, their work is truly at

the heart of what we do, and without them we simply couldn’t

function!

As we continue to work alongside our amazing volunteers to

empower girls in New Zealand, we want to acknowledge their

impact and spread the word that we are always on the lookout

for go-getters, brainstormers, mentors and adventurers to

volunteer with us!

NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK 16-22 June 2019

A Family Works

volunteer breaks

out of “the bubble”

When Becky Wilson started university

in Christchurch she felt like something was

missing. “I was looking for something to do

outside my uni bubble,” she said.

So Becky contacted the Family Works

mentoring programme, where she was

connected with nine-year-old Isla, a little

girl in desperate need of attention. Now the

pair meet for a couple of hours once a week

or fortnight to just hang out together doing

“stuff ”, such as going for walks or visiting

the library.

Becky is one of almost 300 volunteers

supporting their local community through

Presbyterian Support Upper South Island

(PSUSI). In addition to mentoring through

Family Works, volunteers work with

older people at Enliven day programmes.

Opportunities such as minivan driving and

helping with programme activities ensure

there are plenty of ways for someone to

give back. “Our Enliven volunteers are vital

to the work we do with older people,” says

Penny Taylor, PSUSI Regional Manager.

They help create an environment that our

members look forward to coming to each

week.”

Becky says she can see positive change

in Isla since they’ve been spending time

together. And when asked what impact

mentoring has had on her own life, Becky

is quick to answer. “Mentoring is rewarding

even though it’s simple and time spent

doing very normal things. I’ll definitely

keep mentoring as long as I can,” she says.

Family Works and Enliven are service

groups of Presbyterian Support, a nonprofit

social services organisation. Learn

TranzAlpine - journey

through winter wonderland

Embark on an incredible journey

through the breath-taking landscapes

of the stunning South Island. Recently

named as one of the world’s best scenic

train journeys by National Geographic

Traveller; the TranzAlpine crosses the

Canterbury Plains and traverses along

the thrilling viaducts of New Zealand’s

Southern Alps.

This winter, sit back and relax as

you take in views of snow-capped

mountains, rolling farmland, followed

by the spectacular gorges and river

valleys of the Waimakariri River. Your

train climbs up to Arthurs Pass National

Park, before descending through lush

beech rainforest to the West Coast town

of Greymouth – a great base for visits to

Punakaiki and the popular glaciers.

Absorb New Zealand’s natural beauty

through huge panoramic windows. Take

advantage of the on-board licensed

café and GPS triggered at-seat audio

commentary. From Greymouth, go

fishing or camping in the beautiful Lake

Brunner. Experience a day in the life

of an 1860’s gold miner in charming

Shantytown. Explore the distinctive

forest and rock formations of the

majestic Paparoa National Park, and let’s

not forget the rich West Coast wilderness

trail – renowned for its stellar cycling

and walking tracks.

connect you with our landscapes, people,

places and culture. With something

new at every turn in New Zealand, our

journeys are the best way to explore.

Join us, and discover

the magic of New

GETAWAY TO THE WEST COAST

Advertising Feature

The West Coast – a place

to relax and reconnect

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

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

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

reconnect with your family and whānau in the untamed,

natural wilderness and wonder of the West Coast.

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

yourself in Moana, the township at Lake Brunner – an

outdoor playground for locals and visitors. Lake Brunner

has a range of accommodation to suit all tastes and

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

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

in almost any weather. With professional guides on hand to

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

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

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

along with some lovely scenic walks and cycling tracks of

various levels of difficulty to explore with your family.

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

town on the West Coast, Greymouth. Greymouth and the

surrounding Grey Valley offer adventure activities, heritage

attractions and guided nature tours. Cycle parts of the West

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

go at your own pace and take in the surroundings.

Or keep the history lessons going and visit Shanytown,

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

for their own gold. The opportunities for adventure are

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

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

for a very scenic full day hike.

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

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

Visit www.shantytown.co.nz to purchase

discounted online entry tickets

It runs tours that include a tasting session.

Both Greymouth and Moana are stops on the TranzAlpine

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

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

home and take in the stunning sights with the excitement

and novelty of a train ride.

Escape to the West Coast these holidays – the beauty and

tranquillity of this little corner of our country makes for a

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

memories and just have fun.

A real sense of pioneer

New Zealand

While the South Island’s West Coast is

well known for its magnificent scenery and

glaciers, no visit to the area is complete

without experiencing Shantytown.

The discovery of gold in 1864 led to a

population “explosion” – from around 300

to almost 30,000 residents. Isolation, rugged

terrain and extreme weather conditions

produced stories of fortitude and ingenuity.

Shantytown tells these stories through

a fascinating mix of experience and

displays. Ride the Steam Train along an

original tramway through native rainforest;

experience the sights and sounds of a

working sawmill. Watch the mighty sluice

gun in action then follow the races and

flumes to the gold claim and learn the

technique of how to pan for your own gold

– a strike is guaranteed!

The beautiful setting on over 200 hectares

acres of native rainforest offers a feeling of

remoteness, while only 10 minutes from the

seaside town of Greymouth. The rainforest

is easily accessible with short bush walks

and trails around the park.

The village, born of the gold rush, offers

delicious refreshments from King Dick’s Cafe,

while the kids can enjoy the flying fox, or try

their hand at the gold-rush Treasure Hunt.

For a memento of your visit to

Shantytown nothing is better than to grab a

costume and get an old time photo.

With over 30 shops and buildings to explore,

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

BELIEVED TO be the

oldest rugby trophy in

Canterbury, the John

McKendry Memorial Cup

will be at stake again on

Saturday in the match

between St Bede’s and St

Thomas of Canterbury

colleges.

The trophy bears the

name of John McKendry,

Christchurch’s most

outstanding rugby player

in the early 1890s and a

Canterbury representative

in 1892.

McKendry, who was a

big man for the era but

not by today’s standards

at 1.88m and 92kg, was

named the most valuable

player in the Christchurch

senior competition three

years in a row – 1892,

1893 and 1894. He

played as a wing forward

(loose forward) for East

Christchurch.

The cup was only

awarded for the first time

in 1890, and after winning

it for three consecutive

years, it was given to

McKendry to keep. He

gave up rugby quite young

in his mid-20s.

His grandson Don

McKendry said Jack, as

he was known, was by

all accounts an absolute

character and a keen

sportsman, especially

when it came to rowing

and horse training.

The stables were down

by the boot factory and

he would work his horses

on Lancaster Park, which

I believe had a 440 yard

track, so four times round

for the mile,” he said.

Jack was born in Ireland

and came to New Zealand

as a two-year-old with

his family, landing in

Dunedin, then moving

straight to Christchurch in

1873.

On his death in 1952,

FAMILY AFFAIR: Phil, 52, Terry, 78, Don, 80

and Tony McKendry, 75, show off the McKendry

Memorial Cup.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​

the McKendry family

presented the trophy so

it could be played for in

a match between Xavier

College and Christian

Brothers High School in

Dunedin.

As schools and names

changed, it was then played

for between Catholic

Cathedral College and St

Thomas of Canterbury. It

was last contested in 1998.

It was a fitting donation

as four of McKendry’s

grandchildren, Don, Terry,

Tom and Tony were at

Xavier at the time.

The Xavier, St Thomas’,

St Bede’s, Marist

connection has been

a strong link for the

McKendry family, and it

still holds true today with

Phillip McKendry, son of

Terry and great grandson

of Jack, helping with the

coaching of St Thomas’

first XV.

For Phillip, when playing

for St Thomas’ first XV in

1983, he followed in the

sprig marks of his father

with history repeating

itself twice, firstly in

successfully playing for the

John McKendry Memorial

Trophy against Xavier and

secondly being in the first

St Thomas’ side to defeat

The Star Thursday June 20 2019

SPORT 37

Clash for historic

trophy will test

family loyalties

St Bede’s. “I was involved

coaching the St Thomas’

first XV, along with Steve

Hart, who worked so hard

to have the side included

in the Press Cup back

in the early 2000s, and

having been away from

Christchurch for many

years have once again

relinked with the school.

“St Thomas’ have only

ever beaten St Bede’s

twice, the last being two

years ago, but we did

beat [Christchurch] Boys’

High for the first time

this season, so it will be

a strong challenge, but

the good thing is that the

victor will be a worthy

winner of such an historic

trophy,” he said.

The match will test the

loyalty of a few. St Bede’s

rector Justin Boyle is a St

Thomas’ old boy and was

part of a McKendry Cup

winning team as a student,

while St Thomas’ rector

Steve Hart is a St Bede’s old

boy.

St Bede’s deputy rector

Gerry Davidson, who is the

current general manager

of the first XV and former

coach of the side, is a

Xavier old boy, who also

played in a McKendry Cup

winning team.

Last chance to score SFL spot

THREE TEAMS are still

in the race for the Southern

Football League’s final spot

going into the last round

of the Mainland Premier

League on Saturday.

Ferrymead Bays

currently occupy fifth spot

on the MPL table. The top

five teams will qualify for

the SFL.

Coastal Spirit and

Selwyn United are both

just one point behind Bays

and sit poised to leapfrog

them into the SFL should

Bays drop points on

Saturday against Cashmere

Technical.

Bays face the unenviable

task of taking on the

recently crowned MPL

champions at Garrick Park.

Meanwhile, Coastal

will fancy their chances of

securing three points when

they play bottom-of-thetable

FC Twenty 11.

Selwyn United have a

slim chance of securing

an SFL spot as they have a

worse goal differential than

Coastal.

But if both Bays and

Coastal slip up and Selwyn

United are able to defeat

Nomads United, they

would sneak into fifth and

the SFL.

an individual after being

part of a three-person relay

earlier this year.

It’s a remarkable

turnaround for the former

Christchurch Boys’ High

School head boy, who

fought off Burkitt’s non-

Hodgkin’s lymphoma only

to struggle to walk unassisted

after chemotherapy

damaged the nerves in his

legs.

But true to form and

his incredible resilience,

in 2019 – three years after

his initial diagnosis – the

21-year-old took on the

three-part 140km bike ride

to cross the finish line in

New Brighton, alongside

Stop dogging us Steve

IF OUR fourth place finish

at the 2002 basketball

World Championships

is known as our greatest

accomplishment in the

sport, then this year’s

World Cup looks likely to

be known as what could

have been if Steven Adams

hadn’t dogged us.

On Monday, it was announced

Adams will turn

down the opportunity to

play for New Zealand at the

World Cup in China which

begins on August 31.

In the past Adams’

snubbing of pulling on the

Tall Blacks jersey had been

understandable as he was

trying to establish himself

in the NBA with the Oklahoma

City Thunder.

However, that’s no longer

an issue and his latest

rejection of the national

team is now in danger of

damaging his reputation as

our greatest ever player.

Adams has undoubtedly

broken new ground

as a Kiwi basketballer with

what he has accomplished

with the Thunder, but until

he turns out for the Tall

Blacks and helps New Zealand

perform on the world

stage he can’t be called our

greatest ever player.

You could even argue he

doesn’t even come close to

being in the same conversation

as Pero Cameron or

Kirk Penney. Yes, Cameron

never played in the NBA

and Penney had very brief

spells with a number of

teams. However, they

both punched above their

weight at world championships.

In 2002 Cameron – an

undersized and overweight

power forward – was the

local sport

Proudly brought to you by...

two of his ex-school mates,

Ewing.

The feeling of accomplishment

was incredible.

I was so humbled to have

been able to be a part of

an event with so much

history and meaning to the

Canterbury community –

and also fairly grateful that

I made it,” said Bailey,

Almost as quick as he

crossed the finish line,

like many who start their

Coast to Coast journey as

part of a team, Bailey had

already set his sights on

driving force behind the

Tall Blacks phenomenal

fourth place finish and was

named in the All-Tournament

Team alongside NBA

legends Dirk Nowitzki, Yao

Ming, Manu Ginobili and

Peja Stojakovic.

In 2010 Penney finished

second amongst all scorers

averaging 24.7 points

per game. In third with

22.8ppg was a little known

player by the name of

Kevin Durant.

As much as Adams has

accomplished to date in

the NBA there’s no case

to mention him in the

same breath as a Durant,

Nowitzki, Ming, Ginobili

or Stojakovic. However,

Cameron and Penney can

claim that honour due to

what they did in the black

jersey.

Those who have been

quick to defend Adams’

decision will point out he

owes New Zealand Basketball

nothing – fair enough.

However, a constant

argument for his snubbing

is that it’s normal for

NBA stars to not play for

their national team. This

couldn’t be more wrong

though.

If the names stated

earlier don’t say enough

it’s worth noting Giannis

they face the Tall Blacks.

“It’s a tough race,

Meanwhile, Australia will

The only direct message

from Adams’ camp was a

throwaway line from his

agent which said: “While

he won’t be participating

this year with the national

team, his plan is to evaluate

the opportunity to play

in the 2020 Olympics following

the upcoming NBA

season.”

The irony in Adams supposedly

being interested in

playing for New Zealand at

next year’s Olympics is the

easiest way to qualify for

the event would be a top

seven finish at this year’s

World Cup – something

that seems a lot less achievable

without Adams.

With Adams New

chance of once again

overachieving at this year’s

World Cup – they still

may without him. The

Tall Blacks topped their

qualifying group which

included powerhouses

China, winning 10 of their

12 games.

If anything it’s a shame

Adams refuses to play

at this year’s World Cup

and something I hope he

doesn’t look back on in the

future and wonder what

could have been for a Tall

knock off some major

nations with a 2.13m big

Mitre 10 Cup dates hurt club final

• By Gordon Findlater

A HANDFUL of players look set

to miss this year’s club rugby final

due to Canterbury beginning

their Mitre 10 Cup campaign

early.

The premier metro final will

be played on Sunday, July 28. A

day earlier, Canterbury will play a

preseason match against Tasman

in Hanmer Springs. A large

chunk of the players named

in Canterbury coach Joe

Maddock’s wider training

squad of 40 players are

expected to take part in the

Hanmer match, meaning

they would miss the club

final should their team

make it.

The team that could be affected

most is Lincoln University, which

are going for a fifth straight metro

title. They have seven players in

the wider training group. Other

top six contenders Christchurch

THE CRUSADERS have named

start with an All Blacks front row

Meanwhile, Taylor returns for

the first time since breaking his

Teams playing in the plate and

impacted.

The unfortunate thing is the

players who will miss out on

may get a game or two and to a

lot of those guys the highlight of

their rugby career will be winning

shame,” said metro rugby

committee chairman Brent

Goldsmid.

The Mitre 10 Cup season

is starting one week earlier

than previous years due

to the June international

rugby window not being

played this year.

Said Canterbury Rugby

Football Union chief executive

Tony Smail: “Ahead of the

Zealand Rugby’s recommendation

was that club finals across

New Zealand be played one week

in advance, on the weekend of

20-21 July, in order to ensure

there was minimal disruption to

the club competition and player

availability.”

“It is ultimately the decision

of our sub-unions as to the dates

they wish to play their club

finals and we have had good

conversations with each of them

throughout this process.”

Goldsmid says the metro

committee looked at trying to

move the club final forward.

However, playing a midweek

round to get ahead was not an

option due to a lack of grounds

which have lights up to a high

enough standard to play night

games. He says the competition

was also unable to be started

a week earlier due to grounds

not being made available by the

council.

Maitland’s rise to top of European rugby

• By Gordon Findlater

SEAN MAITLAND made 54

appearances as a young gun

outside back for the Crusaders.

Now the 30-year-old is home

visiting family in New Zealand

after winning the double with

English premiership side

Saracens.

Maitland arrived back in

Christchurch last week after

a busy 10-month season with

Scotland and Saracens. He

caught up with friends and

family, and has also been

keeping fit – being put through

the wringer by friend Matt

Bateman at The Hiit Squad gym

with former teammates Ryan

Crotty, Israel Dagg and Codie

Taylor.

“It’s the off-season, but if you

get down to the gym at 7.30 in

the morning then you can eat

whatever you want for the rest of

the day and play some golf,” said

Maitland.

He’s also been looking at how

the central city has evolved over

the past 12 months.

The strip’s looking good

now. I had a look the other day

and everything has changed . . .

there’s little pockets popping up

and I’m sure when I come back

in three or however many years

it’s going to be a great city,” said

Maitland.

The look of the city and its

nightlife has changed a lot since

his early days in Christchurch,

which involved nights out at old

haunts on Manchester St and

Oxford Tce.

“It used to be Shooters on a

Thursday, Boogie Nights on a

Friday, and then the strip on the

Saturday,” said Maitland.

FINISHER: Saracens winger Sean Maitland has become

one of European rugby’s most lethal try-scorers since

leaving the Crusaders in 2012.

“It was great memories,

especially those first couple of

years. It was Ali Williams’ first

and last year at the Crusaders

. . . he was a good fellow, we had

a lot of big personalities in the

team so it was a lot of fun.”

Maitland grew up in Tokoroa,

Waikato, and played his first

rugby for Tokoroa Pirates as a

five-year-old. He went on to play

first XV rugby at Hamilton Boys’

High School, where he was a

boarder.

“I got spotted by a guy called

Matt Sexton, who was at the

time the Canterbury academy

manager. He gave me the call

and said would you be keen to

come down and have a look

around and see what you think,”

said Maitland.

“For me, it was a bit of a nobrainer.

Obviously at the time

the Crusaders were dominating

everything.”

In his first year in

Christchurch, Maitland played

club rugby for Linwood and

studied to be an electrician at

CPIT.

“Don’t ask me how that went,”

said Maitland.

Following just one season of

club rugby, Maitland made the

Canterbury NPC team at 19. The

following year he was named in

the Crusaders squad and made

•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

13 appearances, scoring three

tries en route to the 2008 Super

Rugby title.

“Everything happened really

quick . . . it was buzzy because

you’re only a couple of years out

of school and you used to watch

most of these guys on telly and

then you’re around them 24/7,”

said Maitland.

Maitland highlights the

Crusaders campaign following

the February 22, 2011,

earthquake as a favourite. The

team were forced on the road

with Lancaster Park heavily

damaged. They advanced to the

final before being beaten by the

Reds 13-18 in Brisbane. Quade

Cooper – who was instrumental

in the Reds success that year – is

Maitland’s cousin.

“I think it was the first time

I’d lost to him actually. Growing

up in Tokoroa we played against

each other at club and then we

had a few good battles at school,”

said Maitland.

Following the 2012 season,

Maitland signed with Glasgow

Warriors to chase his dream of

playing for Scotland as he has

Scottish grandparents.

Within a few months of

arriving at Glasgow, he was

making his debut for Scotland

against England at Twickenham

and was then named in the

British and Irish Lions squad to

travel to Australia.

Since then, Maitland has

played for Glasgow, London

Irish and now Saracens, and

has racked up 40 caps for

Scotland.

His most memorable season to

date came this year. His Saracens

side achieved the double,

winning the European Cup final

against Leinster 20-10 in May

and the premiership final against

Exeter 37-34 earlier this month.

Maitland scored tries in both

finals.

He is currently visiting family

in Waikato and will return to

Scotland this month. He has

a busy schedule ahead, and

is aiming to book his spot in

Scotland’s squad for this year’s

World Cup.

There’s a lot of competition,

especially in the back three, but

it would be cool if I could get a

second World Cup under my

belt,” said Maitland.

IN A GLOBAL market

hell-bent on buying sport

utility vehicles, there’s a lot

to be said for the traditional

family sedan and liftback/

hatchback.

There are plenty of bargains

to be had in that part

of the market, and although

the segment has diminished

a lot in recent years,

there is still good choice,

especially mid-size models.

Personally, I’m a bit of a

sedan fan, and I’m pleased

to report there are still

some crackers coming out

of Asia.

One of the very progressive

Korean companies

still offering sedans and

liftbacks is Kia, and their

mid-size model – the

Cerato – has just entered a

new generation.

Effectively, there are six

models in the range, LX,

EX, GT Line and GT; the

LX and EX are available in

both body styles, the GT

Line and GT are liftbackonly

variants.

I’m scheduled into the

turbocharged 1.6-litre GT

later in the year, however,

this evaluation focuses on

the GT Line that is powered

by a naturally-aspirated

2-litre engine which,

incidentally, is pretty much

a carryover from the previous

generation.

The Cerato GT Line is

priced at $39,990, taking

into account the range

starts at $31,990 for the LX

and ends at $41,990 for the

GT.

The GT Line gets a hefty

range of specification,

leather trim with heated

and cooling seats, satellite

navigation, Apple Car Play

and Android Auto, smart

cruise control and touch

screen control system are

all included, plus there is a

high level of kit for safety.

Fitment aside, what the

Cerato does in the first

instance is to provide an

inviting driving experience,

one which is smooth

and relates to comfortable

travel.

It is also a car which

won’t cost a lot of terms of

usage. Kia rate the engine

with a 7.4l/100km (38mpg)

combined cycle average,

and that wasn’t too far

distant from the 8l/100km

(35mpg) figure constantly

showing on the fuel usage

readout. It also displays

a 5.5l/100km (51mpg)

instantaneous figure when

travelling at 100km/h (engine

speed 2050rpm).

On the subject of figures,

the engine is rated with a

120kW (6200rpm) power

output, that’s a hearty figure

for a 1999cc engine, and it

also gets a useful 192Nm of

torque available just above

mid-range in the rev band

at 4000rpm.

It is a lively engine and

lets you know when it is

working hard but even

though it is quite audible

it isn’t overbearing. The

benefit is a fully responsive

throttle pedal through the

entire rev range, it is constantly

eager.

Power is transferred

through a six-speed

automatic gearbox to the

front wheels, there are no

surprises there, but to say

the transmission is a beauty

in terms of sophistication.

Interestingly, there are no

paddle shifters in the GT

Line, but manual shifts can

be made from the main

gear lever.

There are also three drive

modes – eco, comfort and

smart, the latter switching

to sport mode if throttle

percentage is high. I

used smart mode mostly,

it recognises each driver’s

style and adjusts the engine

management protocols to

suit.

In terms of acceleration,

a GT Line buyer can expect

a standstill to 100km/h

time of 9sec, and it will

power strongly through a

highway overtake in 5.2sec.

These aren’t as quick as

what you’ll get out of the

GT proper, but they are

enough to satisfy the buyer

who doesn’t want outright

performance.

I took the test car on

my standard inland loop,

incorporating a run up

and down the Waimakariri

Gorge incline. It cruises the

long straights with quiet

motion, and also takes on a

sporty feel when presented

with a corner or two. I

pushed the test car in both

directions in and out of the

gorge, the chassis worked

well, and that considering

the rear suspension in the

Cerato is a simplistic torsion

beam type.

Ordinarily, there’s

some suspension movement

restriction in nonindependent

systems, but

body movement was well

contained, and uneven

road surfaces didn’t present

any surprises, the spring

and damper rates are set

towards controlled absorption.

Steering feel is sharp,

and directional accuracy

is decisive. A lot of that

has to do with the quality

of the rubber, the Kumho

tyres (225/45 x 17in) have

high grip properties and are

quiet on most surfaces.

I’m buoyed by Kia’s continuation

of the Cerato line,

I guess the company could

have decided to abandon

the concept, but I can safely

say those who do find their

way into the hatch or sedan

will find it a well-built,

capable car that does very

little wrong.

It needs to be tempting,

car makers that are still

plying that part of the

market have some amazing

models that are hugely

competitive. The Mazda 3

is one of those that has also

just undergone a complete

transformation, it is there

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

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.”
