Thank you to<br />

Councillors<br />

to vote<br />

on their<br />

pay after<br />

October’s<br />

elections<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

CITY COUNCILLORS will<br />

vote on the size of their own<br />

pay packets after October’s local<br />

body elections.<br />

Councillors will receive a<br />

minimum base salary of $97,280<br />

– $5120 less than what they are<br />

currently paid.<br />

But the mayor will get an<br />

increase, receiving $195,000 –<br />

a $1901 rise from the current<br />

$193,099 the role pays.<br />

However, this could all<br />

change when the new city<br />

council decides on the<br />

allocation of a $1,843,200<br />

governance pool.<br />

This comes after a new<br />

approach from the<br />

Remuneration Authority,<br />

which is responsible for paying<br />

elected members of councils.<br />

Funds from the pool could be<br />

used to increase the base salary<br />

of city councillors and additional<br />

pay could be allocated towards<br />

roles with extra responsibilities,<br />

such as the mayor, deputy<br />

mayor, chairs and deputy chairs<br />

of committees.<br />

Elected members will<br />

vote on the allocation of funds<br />

and make a recommendation<br />

to the Remuneration Authority,<br />

which will have the final say on<br />

their salaries.<br />

THE FLU continues to sweep<br />

through Canterbury with 35<br />

to 48 patients a day showing<br />

influenza symptoms or similar<br />

at Christchurch Hospital.<br />

Canterbury District Health<br />

Board forecasters predict by<br />

August, it could expect 450-500<br />

admissions related to the flu a<br />

week.<br />

CDHB chief executive David<br />

Meates said the number of<br />

people testing positive for<br />

influenza has been “rising in<br />

spectacular fashion.”<br />

An early onset of the flu eason<br />

means the health system has had<br />

“a <strong>June</strong> like no other,” he said.<br />

Between March and<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

A COMEDIAN was grabbed<br />

by the back of the head and<br />

pushed after he made a joke<br />

about white supremacists during<br />

a show.<br />

During Simon Kingsley-<br />

Holmes’ set at the Madeira Hotel<br />

in Akaroa he made a joke about<br />

playing scrabble with a white<br />

supremacist.<br />

Kingsley-Holmes then pulled a<br />

scrabble board from his bag with<br />

the tiles arranged in the shape<br />

of a swastika and delivered the<br />

punchline: “What a prick, he<br />

glued all the tiles to the board.”<br />

He also made reference to<br />

finding a swastika in a public<br />

toilet in Timaru.<br />

<strong>The</strong> comedian has steered clear<br />

of swastika-related jokes since<br />

the March 15 mosque shootings.<br />

But when he did his set on <strong>June</strong><br />

15, he thought enough<br />

time had passed to reintroduce<br />

white supremacist-related<br />

material into his act.<br />

After finishing his set he was<br />

May, three patients died in<br />

Christchurch hospitals from<br />

complications related to<br />

influenza. All had pre-existing<br />

conditions.<br />

Mr Meates said influenza<br />

immunisation rates have<br />

increased since last year, but a<br />

large number of people are still<br />

becoming unwell in spite of this.<br />

By the end of May, 198,756<br />

influenza vaccine doses had<br />

been distributed in Canterbury<br />

this year – 10,000 more than<br />

were distributed over the whole<br />

of last year.<br />

Mr Meates said staffing levels<br />

have been increased to cater for<br />

patients.<br />

confronted by a man, possibly in<br />

his late 20s.<br />

<strong>The</strong> man grabbed him by the<br />

back of the head and tried to<br />

push him in the direction of the<br />

local RSA, saying he should tell<br />

the joke there.<br />

Inquiry ordered<br />

into juror<br />

news online at www.star.kiwi<br />

Councillors to vote on own pay<br />

at rape trial<br />

•From page 1<br />

• By Anna Leask<br />

THE SUPREME Court has ordered<br />

an inquiry into a jury foreperson<br />

after claims made that he went<br />

to school with the brother of a<br />

convicted rapist whose trial he sat on.<br />

It has been further claimed that<br />

the foreperson bullied the rapist’s<br />

brother at school – and was “biased”<br />

and used his position to “influence”<br />

other jurors on the case.<br />

Brooke Rolleston and Brandon<br />

Roche, both 20, were convicted in<br />

the district court last year after a<br />

jury found them guilty of the January<br />

2016 rape and sexual violation<br />

by unlawful sexual connection of<br />

the teenage girl, which took place<br />

near Christchurch.<br />

Judge Alistair Garland sentenced<br />

Rolleston to 11 years and two<br />

months’ imprisonment and Roche<br />

to 10 years and nine months’ imprisonment.<br />

<strong>The</strong> pair appealed their convictions<br />

after claiming they did not receive<br />

a fair trial because of apparent<br />

juror bias. <strong>The</strong>y also alleged their<br />

sentences were manifestly excessive.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Court of Appeal rejected their<br />

bid. <strong>The</strong> pair then took their case to<br />

the Supreme Court, which yesterday<br />

released its decision.<br />

It has made an order “directing<br />

an inquiry to be undertaken by an<br />

independent practitioner of the jury<br />

foreperson”.<br />

Elected members will vote<br />

on the allocation of funds and<br />

make a recommendation to the<br />

Remuneration Authority which<br />

it will have the final say on.<br />

City council secretary Jo Daly<br />

said the entire pool had to be<br />

used on council related remuneration.<br />

Funds from the governance<br />

pool can also be put towards the<br />

remuneration of community<br />

board members.<br />

In spite of receiving a pay rise<br />

of $194, the Banks Peninsula<br />

Community Board is still paid<br />

less than half of what inner city<br />

board members are.<br />

As it stands, Banks Peninsula<br />

Community Board members<br />

are set to receive $9864 and the<br />

chairperson $19,729 after the<br />

elections.<br />

Whereas members of the<br />

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton<br />

Community Board will receive<br />

$24,580 and their chair $49,160.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y say what they are paid<br />

fails to account for the time and<br />

travel that the role requires.<br />

<strong>The</strong> current remuneration<br />

model is set by population, so<br />

community boards with bigger<br />

populations get better remuneration.<br />

Banks Peninsula Community<br />

Board member Jed O’Donoghue<br />

thought they were paid a pittance<br />

for the work they were<br />

required to do.<br />

He said the low level of remuneration<br />

contributed to his decision<br />

to not stand for re-election.<br />

Half of the board have said<br />

they may not seek reelection<br />

because of what they are paid.<br />

“I think to attract more candidates<br />

and make the democratic<br />

process better you would need<br />

better remuneration,” he said.<br />

Deputy Mayor and Banks<br />

Peninsula councillor Andrew<br />

Turner said he would like to see<br />

some of the governance pool<br />

used to increase the funding of<br />

the Banks Peninsula Community<br />

Board.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> work of a community<br />

board member is not solely<br />

driven by the population that it<br />

represents. A lot of the work of<br />

a community board is driven<br />

by the environment and on the<br />

James Gough<br />

Andrew Turner<br />

Banks Peninsula we have a lot of<br />

environmental issues,” he said.<br />

City councillor James Gough<br />

agreed there needed to be more<br />

consistency in the remuneration<br />

of community board members.<br />

However, he thought it was<br />

also important city councillors<br />

were also paid their fair share.<br />

“You would be mad to not<br />

appreciate that remuneration is<br />

going to factor in the attraction<br />

of quality candidates,” he said.<br />

Glenn’s about to get a rocket<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

A WAR of words has erupted<br />

between a well-known<br />

businessman trying to oust a<br />

long-term city councillor in<br />

October’s local body elections.<br />

And the battleground involves<br />

where the businessman lives –<br />

and an unrelated pile of shingle.<br />

Maugers Contracting Ltd<br />

boss Phil Mauger is standing<br />

in the Burwood Ward against<br />

three-term city councillor Glenn<br />

Livingstone.<br />

Mr Mauger lives in Avonhead,<br />

but grew up in the eastern<br />

suburbs.<br />

Last month, <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong>’s<br />

community newspaper in<br />

the eastern suburbs, Pegasus<br />

Post, reported on the Coastal-<br />

Burwood Community Board’s<br />

bid to try and have a pile of<br />

shingle removed from a car park,<br />

alongside the Avon River, near<br />

the intersection of New Brighton<br />

Rd and Wainoni Rd.<br />

<strong>The</strong> article prompted Mr<br />

Mauger to get his staff and a<br />

digger to clean most of it up.<br />

He posted a photo of the clean<br />

up on his election Facebook<br />

page, which Cr Livingstone said<br />

was “electioneering.”<br />

Mr Mauger, when interviewed<br />

later by <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong>, said it wasn’t.<br />

But <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> then learned<br />

the day after it was cleaned up<br />

TUSSLE: Burwood Ward city council candidate Phil Mauger (left) was accused of<br />

“electioneering” by Burwood Ward city councillor Glenn Livingstone after clearing shingle<br />

from a car park on New Brighton Rd.<br />

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

a Maugers Contracting truck<br />

appeared at the site with a<br />

sign saying “Vote Mauger For<br />

Burwood.”<br />

Interviewed again by <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong><br />

this week, Mr Mauger said a staff<br />

member made the decision to<br />

take the truck to the location.<br />

“I just said to my guy on the<br />

truck, ‘you drive where ever you<br />

like’,” he said.<br />

When asked what Cr<br />

Livingstone would think of<br />

this, Mr Mauger told <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong><br />

he was sick of criticism (from<br />

Cr Livingstone) about the way<br />

he was running his election<br />

campaign, and the fact he lived<br />

outside of the Burwood Ward.<br />

Cr Livingstone previously<br />

questioned the impact Mr<br />

Mauger could have living<br />

outside of Burwood if he was<br />

elected. Mr Mauger said this<br />

would not affect the job he would<br />

do.<br />

“Glenn’s about to get a rocket<br />

right up his a*** very soon in the<br />

next couple of days, because I am<br />

sick and tired of hearing about<br />

the fact that I don’t live in the<br />

ward,” said Mr Mauger.<br />

Rather than criticising him,<br />

Cr Livingstone should “do<br />

door-knocking and just do<br />

commonsense electioneering,”<br />

he said.<br />

Cr Livingstone responded to<br />

those comments by saying doorknocking<br />

had played a much<br />

bigger role in his campaign than<br />

criticising Mr Mauger had.<br />

“Maybe he’s just been caught<br />

up in a moment of passion,<br />

which is quite understandable<br />

because campaigns can<br />

be stressful at times,” Cr<br />

Livingstone said of Mr Mauger’s<br />

comments.<br />

“It’s not the approach I’d<br />

take myself. I think there is<br />

a propensity in campaigns<br />

for candidates to try different<br />

things to attract votes and I<br />

really have to leave this one up<br />

to the community to judge for<br />

themselves.”<br />

Rewards to solve crimes: Do<br />

Last month, police<br />

offered $100,000 for<br />

information leading<br />

to a conviction in<br />

the unsolved Angela<br />

Blackmoore murder<br />

case. So how do<br />

police rewards come<br />

about and are they<br />

ever claimed? Sophie<br />

Cornish reports<br />

MORE THAN a month after<br />

revealing the $100,000 reward,<br />

police are still searching for Miss<br />

Blackmoore’s killer.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 21-year-old was 10-weeks<br />

pregnant when she was stabbed<br />

39 times in her home in<br />

Vancouver Cres, Wainoni, in<br />

August 1995.<br />

Her two-year-old son was<br />

sleeping under the same roof<br />

at the time of her death – an<br />

investigation that has since been<br />

dubbed Operation Vancouver.<br />

Head of the investigation,<br />

Detective Sergeant Todd<br />

Hamilton said there has been<br />

no update to the case since<br />

announcing the reward on May<br />

18.<br />

More than 40 calls were<br />

received on an 0800 information<br />

line by the end of May.<br />

<strong>The</strong> reward will remain in<br />

effect until October 16.<br />

<strong>The</strong> homicide case, along with<br />

many others around the country,<br />

remains unsolved and no one has<br />

ever been held to account for the<br />

young mother’s death.<br />

Offering rewards for<br />

information which leads to an<br />

arrest is not uncommon in New<br />

Zealand. But rarely are they ever<br />

claimed.<br />

Detective Sergeant Ross<br />

Tarawhiti has worked on<br />

two high-profile cases which<br />

have offered rewards – the<br />

disappearance of Tuitania (Tui)<br />

Barclay in 2002 and Yoon Sook<br />

Chun in 2009 – neither of which<br />

were claimed.<br />

He believes rewards are mainly<br />

offered as a last resort tactic.<br />

“For a lot of cases, it’s gone a<br />

long way down the track and it’s<br />

UNSOLVED: Detective Sergeant Ross Tarawhiti has worked on two high-profile<br />

investigations which have offered rewards but remained unsolved. <strong>The</strong>se were the<br />

disappearance of Tui Barclay in 2002 and Yoon Sook Chun in 2009.<br />

Mallory Manning Angela Blackmoore Yoon Sook Chun<br />

just given to try and generate<br />

some public interest to try and<br />

hopefully find someone who<br />

maybe is looking for a bit of<br />

money and could be motivated<br />

by that. It’s a last resort most<br />

of the time . . . police national<br />

headquarters have to be satisfied<br />

that every other avenue has been<br />

exhausted,” he said.<br />

Canterbury University<br />

professor and crime expert Greg<br />

Newbold said the “last ditch<br />

effort” by police is often to entice<br />

people whose allegiances and<br />

loyalties may have changed.<br />

“When the crime is fresh in<br />

people’s minds and they know<br />

the perpetrator or something<br />

about it, they may decline to<br />

speak, out of loyalty. It might be<br />

their boyfriend, husband, best<br />

friend, someone close to them<br />

who knows about it.<br />

Ten years down the track,<br />

those people might have fallen<br />

out, they might not know each<br />

other anymore and the<br />

fact that there is a lot of<br />

money being offered,<br />

that might sway them<br />

to think: ‘Oh well, he<br />

deserves it and I need the<br />

dough’.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> perpetrator may<br />

be old, they might be<br />

infirm, the person might<br />

be unable to even go to<br />

trial,” said Professor Newbold.<br />

Detective Inspector Corrie<br />

Parnell spoke about this during<br />

the announcement of the reward<br />

Greg Newbold<br />

for Operation Vancouver.<br />

“With the passing of time<br />

allegiances may have changed and<br />

we’re appealing to anyone with<br />

information that might help, no<br />

matter how small or seemingly<br />

insignificant, to contact<br />

us,” he said.<br />

Professor Newbold<br />

doesn’t believe guilt or<br />

conscience would play a<br />

role in someone coming<br />

forward with information<br />

many years later.<br />

“If guilt and<br />

conscience was a factor<br />

they would have come<br />

forward a long time ago. What’s<br />

going to tip the balance will be<br />

the money . . . it’s easy to have<br />

a conscience when you have<br />

$100k going into your pocket.”<br />

Protection or immunity may<br />

be offered in return for valuable<br />

information.<br />

“Immunity against prosecution<br />

will be considered for any<br />

accomplice to the murder,” was<br />

stated during the reveal of the<br />

Operation Vancouver reward.<br />

However, Professor Newbold<br />

said it would be highly unlikely<br />

that a “clean skin” – someone<br />

without a criminal record –<br />

would be targeted for giving<br />

evidence<br />

“<strong>The</strong> chances of retaliation are<br />

almost zero . . . but, if they are in<br />

the criminal world there would<br />

be, because they have broken the<br />

code.”<br />

So what’s been offered and<br />

what’s been claimed?<br />

Rewards will often expire<br />

without being claimed.<br />

<strong>The</strong> conditions of each reward<br />

vary, but Detective Sergeant<br />

Tarawhiti said rewards are<br />

mainly given out when police are<br />

given information that would be<br />

sufficient to enable a prosecution.<br />

In the case of Mrs Chun and<br />

Ms Barclay, neither rewards were<br />

given out due to “insufficient<br />

information,” he said.<br />

“We did get some information<br />

but a lot of it was speculation and<br />

things like that, it wasn’t anything<br />

of substance. Had it of been, we<br />

would have obviously paid out. It<br />

never progressed further.”<br />

In 2008, the New Zealand<br />

Herald reported that in the<br />

five years prior, New Zealand<br />

police had offered $800,000 in<br />

reward money – but not paid out<br />

a cent.<br />

In 2014, the cold case of the<br />

disappearance of Tui Barclay was<br />

re-opened, with police suspecting<br />

foul play and offering a $50,000<br />

reward for information.<br />

It expired without being<br />

claimed in January 2015.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re have been no confirmed<br />

sightings of the Dunedin motherof-three<br />

since September 17,<br />

2002.<br />

In 2003, police said strong<br />

leads suggested Ms Barclay went<br />

to Christchurch and linked with<br />

a local gang.<br />

Also at that time, they said<br />

they had to consider there was a<br />

reasonable possibility she could<br />

be dead.<br />

Forensic samples taken from a<br />

Christchurch gang headquarters<br />

led nowhere. <strong>The</strong> case remains<br />

unsolved.<br />

Later in 2015, police offered a<br />

$30,000 reward for information<br />

on the disappearance of Korean<br />

mother-of-two Yoon Sook Chun,<br />

in 2009.<br />

<strong>The</strong> reward was offered in July<br />

and on October 1, it expired<br />

without being claimed.<br />

Mrs Chun was last seen walking<br />

out of her Aidanfield home<br />

in May 2009.<br />

Her family said she sent an<br />

email saying she was going to<br />

Auckland for a break and that she<br />

would return, but she never did.<br />

Her bank accounts remain<br />

untouched and there is no trace<br />

of her visiting Auckland. Neither<br />

of her New Zealand or South Korean<br />

passports have been used.<br />

<strong>The</strong> police search for Mrs<br />

Chun was made difficult by her<br />

family not reporting her as missing<br />

until almost seven months<br />

after she disappeared.<br />

OTHER REWARDS<br />

OFFERED<br />

•In 2009, police offered<br />

a $75,000 reward for<br />

information leading<br />

to the prosecution of<br />

the historic murder<br />

of 29-year-old Kayo<br />

Matsuzawa in 1998.<br />

Previously, in 1998,<br />

police offered a $50,000<br />

reward but were not able<br />

to advance the case, in<br />

spite of gathering a large<br />

amount of evidence.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Japanese woman<br />

had come to New<br />

Zealand to study English<br />

in Christchurch and to<br />

work and travel.<br />

On September<br />

11, 1998, she flew to<br />

Auckland, checked into<br />

a backpackers and never<br />

returned.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re was no evidence to<br />

suggest Mrs Chun travelled to<br />

Auckland.<br />

In December 2008, Mallory<br />

Manning, a prostitute, was picked<br />

up and taken to an Avonside<br />

property before being brutally<br />

killed by stabbing, strangling and<br />

assault with a metal pole. Her<br />

body was found dumped in the<br />

Avon River.<br />

On February 20, 2009, police<br />

offered a $50,000 reward for<br />

Eleven days later her<br />

naked and decomposing<br />

body was found in a<br />

small room near the<br />

Centrecourt Building in<br />

Queen St.<br />

<strong>The</strong> case remains<br />

unsolved and no one has<br />

ever been charged with<br />

the murder.<br />

•In December 2008, 100<br />

military medals, including<br />

nine Victoria Crosses,<br />

valued at $5 million were<br />

stolen from the Waiouru<br />

Army Museum.<br />

After announcing a<br />

$300,000 reward in<br />

February 2009, police<br />

recovered all 12 sets of<br />

medals.<br />

Lawyer Christopher<br />

Comeskey offered police<br />

a reward deal for the<br />

return of the medals, and<br />

NO RESULTS: A police dive squad searched a creek in Dunedin after reopening the Tui<br />

Barclay cold case. <strong>The</strong> Dunedin woman who had links to Christchurch went missing in 2002,<br />

and in 2014 police said it suspected foul play and offered a $50,000 reward for information.<br />

“material information evidence<br />

which leads to the identity of<br />

conviction of any person or<br />

persons responsible for the death<br />

of Manning.”<br />

It remained in force until December<br />

clients were.<br />

Both received<br />

$100,000.<br />

When they were<br />

arrested, van Wakeren<br />

returned his share but<br />

Kapa did not and on<br />

appeal to the Supreme<br />

Court, he was able to<br />

keep the money.<br />

Kapa’s prison sentence<br />

is due to run until January<br />

2022 and he was denied<br />

parole in 2016.<br />

Van Wakeren was<br />

More drink<br />

spiking<br />

allegations<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

TWO WOMEN claim they had<br />

their drinks spiked at a central<br />

city bar over the weekend.<br />

<strong>The</strong> bar’s general manager<br />

told <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> yesterday it is<br />

investigating the claims. <strong>The</strong><br />

victims have not yet reported it<br />

to police.<br />

CCTV footage is being<br />

searched to find evidence of the<br />

claims made by the women who<br />

were at the bar on Saturday night.<br />

“We are trolling through<br />

our footage at the moment . . .<br />

obviously we are quite concerned<br />

about this,” said the bar’s general<br />

manager.<br />

<strong>The</strong> manager confirmed<br />

nothing of a sexual nature has<br />

been reported to the bar as a<br />

result of the alleged spiking.<br />

It is the second bar in the city<br />

to face drink spiking allegations<br />

in the past 12 months.<br />

More than 20 complaints<br />

were made to police last year by<br />

women claiming their drinks<br />

were spiked at Mama Hooch bar<br />

on Colombo St.<br />

Some allege they were sexually<br />

assaulted following the drink<br />

spiking incidents.<br />

Four men, aged 25, 33, 34 and<br />

36, were arrested in November.<br />

All have pleaded not guilty<br />

to charges including sexual<br />

violation and stupefying. <strong>The</strong>y<br />

decision<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

CITY COUNCILLOR James<br />

Gough has not ruled out running<br />

for mayor in the October 12 local<br />

body elections.<br />

Cr Gough said he was still considering<br />

his options.<br />

“I’m in no immediate hurry to<br />

make an immediate decision, there<br />

are still a few more people I would<br />

like to talk to so I have not ruled it<br />

out,” he said.<br />

This comes after four-time<br />

mayoral candidate Blair Anderson<br />

announced he would be running for<br />

mayor.<br />

<strong>The</strong> former deputy leader of the<br />

Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party<br />

thought he would make a “bloody<br />

good mayor.”<br />

“I’m a communitarian with<br />

Board deputy chairman<br />

Jake McLellan and incumbent<br />

Deon Swiggs in the battle for the<br />

Mr Antony has lived in the<br />

central city since 2016 and will<br />

run under the centre-right Independent<br />

Citizens banner.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>27</strong>-year-old currently runs<br />

his own business, Mates Social Media,<br />

a creative agency. He started<br />

the business when he was 25.<br />

Before that he ran his own<br />

company, Mallu.<br />

Mr Antony has a strong focus<br />

on small businesses and wants<br />

to revitalise the CBD.<br />

“I’m just pumped for the city<br />

and I want to see it thrive and<br />

have more people coming in, if I<br />

can be part of that conversation<br />

and bring some ideas forward I<br />

would be stoked,” he said.<br />

Mr Antony announced that<br />

he would be running for the<br />

BADJELLY THE WITCH<br />

By Spike Milligan & adapted by Alannah O’Sullivan<br />

Bad Jelly, the baddest witch of in all the world<br />

turns 46 this year but has absolutely no intention<br />

of hanging up her broomstick anytime soon.<br />

Courtesy of much loved comedian Spike<br />

Milligan’s irreverent children’s story, the original<br />

stage adaption was lovingly crafted by New<br />

Zealand’s very own Alannah O’Sullivan and<br />

that script now holds the title of the country’s<br />

most licensed play, having been performed all<br />

over New Zealand. Indeed, entire generations<br />

of Kiwis, have grown up listening to the story<br />

still regular played on the radio and seeing it<br />

performed live.<br />

Badjelly the Witch encapsulates the humour<br />

Spike Milligan became known for: far-fetched<br />

stories, bizarre characters, surreal comedy and<br />

wordplays as well as silly sound effects.<br />

At its heart, it is a fairy tale in the mode of the<br />

classics but pulled into contemporary times,<br />

where children remain intrigued by witches &<br />

wizards, and who want to laugh at giants with<br />

bare bottoms and where the good guys always<br />

triumph.<br />

<strong>The</strong> story follows Rose and Tim, who go into<br />

a deep dark forest to look for their lost cow<br />

Lucy, and meet a whole range of extremely<br />

wonderful if not slightly weird array of helpful<br />

characters, such as Binklebonk, the very<br />

cute Dinglemouse, Mudwiggle and of course<br />

Appletree, <strong>The</strong> Policeman!, to rescue their<br />

beloved Lucy from the clutches of Badjelly the<br />

Witch before she is eaten!<br />

This production will also include the catchy<br />

music and songs by Geoff Davidson.<br />

John Armstrong, our Director, has bought<br />

together a talented cast ensemble, and looks<br />

forward to bring this iconic script to life, as part<br />

of the Christchurch City Council annual KidsFest<br />

July holiday programme<br />

For the first time, Riccarton Players will also<br />

be offering two ‘Relaxed Performances’ on<br />

Wednesday 10th and 17th July at 7pm.<br />

A relaxed performance is a special<br />

performance of a show designed to<br />

welcome those who<br />

will benefit from a more<br />

relaxed performance environment, including<br />

people with an Autism Spectrum Condition,<br />

sensory and communication disorders or a<br />

learning difficulty.<br />

This means that there will be a relaxed<br />

attitude to noise and movement during the<br />

performance, and some changes will be made<br />

to limit the light and sound effects.<br />

<strong>The</strong> theatre will have limited seating capacity<br />

so patrons will be able to move around more<br />

easily and we will be providing two chill-out<br />

areas outside the theatre with activities that can<br />

be used at anytime during the performance. A<br />

resource / social story pack will be emailed to<br />

those booking for these specific shows prior to<br />

attending. All ages welcome.<br />

Don’t delay, bookings are now open for all<br />

shows and we look forward to bringing you<br />

holidays, which is suitable for the whole family.<br />

Vehicles gathered in the car<br />

park of Mitre 10 MEGA Ferrymead<br />

travelled to Akaroa, stopping at<br />

points along the way to do burnouts.<br />

Residents took to Facebook the<br />

THE CITY council is remaining<br />

tight-lipped about where the<br />

noisiest house in the city is located.<br />

<strong>The</strong> property has had 54 complaints<br />

over a 12-month period<br />

from May <strong>2019</strong> to May this year.<br />

In 2015, the city council revealed<br />

what street the house which attracted<br />

the most noise complaints<br />

was located.<br />

Said city council senior information<br />

adviser and privacy officer<br />

Sean Rainey: “However, in 2015<br />

the street released was particularly<br />

small and, the requester was able<br />

to ascertain which house was the<br />

subject of complaint. <strong>The</strong> release of<br />

this information caused a considerable<br />

amount of public harm in<br />

the neighbourhood and a potential<br />

threat to public safety.”<br />

post which held the chain to keep<br />

vehicles out had been smashed<br />

over and the ground was covered<br />

in tyre tracks,” Mr Barrell said.<br />

He said apart from a graffiti<br />

<strong>The</strong> Tilford St home in Woolston<br />

was dubbed ‘Christchurch’s<br />

rowdiest house’ after news media<br />

revealed it had 71 complaints over<br />

a 12-month period.<br />

Following this in 2016, the city<br />

council declined to provide the<br />

identity of the noisiest house and<br />

the street it was located on.<br />

<strong>The</strong>n after a complaint to the<br />

Ombudsman, city council agreed<br />

an approach to balance the public<br />

interest providing information<br />

and transparency and the need to<br />

ensure privacy.<br />

“This meant the city council<br />

would only disclose locations<br />

which were in broader geographical<br />

Banks Peninsula Community<br />

Board deputy chairman Tyrone<br />

Fields was told about a “huge<br />

the following morning.<br />

Mr Fields said boy racing is an<br />

“acknowledged problem” across<br />

the Banks Peninsula and damage<br />

caused by vehicles such as burnouts<br />

are “not uncommon.”<br />

“<strong>The</strong> route is like a circuit,<br />

it’s perfectly set up for that kind<br />

of stuff. I know residents all the way<br />

up to Teddington and beyond are<br />

really frustrated,” Mr Fields said.<br />

On an event page for those<br />

behaviour” and said the night<br />

When a noise complaint is<br />

made, a noise control officer will<br />

visit and assess the noise. If the<br />

noise is unreasonable or excessive,<br />

the officer will ask for it to be<br />

turned down.<br />

<strong>The</strong> officer can also issue an<br />

excessive noise direction notice,<br />

which requires the noise to be<br />

reduced to a reasonable level for 72<br />

hours.<br />

If the noise is not reduced, or<br />

resumes within 72 hours, then the<br />

officer can have the equipment<br />

seized. <strong>The</strong>y must be accompanied<br />

by a police officer to do this.<br />

Flood risk in<br />

Heathcote<br />

alleviated<br />

THE RISK of properties<br />

in Heathcote flooding has<br />

decreased due to work<br />

undertaken in Wigram.<br />

<strong>The</strong> city council has<br />

undertaken flood protection<br />

work to increase the capacity of<br />

the Wigram East storage basin,<br />

which sits in the Canterbury<br />

Agricultural Park.<br />

Land drainage manager<br />

Keith Davison said the work<br />

means there will be less risk<br />

of properties along the upper<br />

reaches of the Heathcote<br />

flooding.<br />

“We have lowered a large<br />

area of the park for flood storage<br />

and created four hectares of<br />

wetland.<br />

“In a one-in-100-year storm<br />

event the basin can now store<br />

around 590 million litres<br />

of water – the equivalent of<br />

more than 236 Olympic-sized<br />

swimming pools,” Mr Davison<br />

said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> city council fast-tracked<br />

the $7.25 million project to<br />

extend the Wigram East storage<br />

basin to provide critical flood<br />

mitigation, and scheduled it<br />

at the same time as work on<br />

neighbouring Ngā Puna Wai<br />

Sports Hub.<br />

THE SEARCH is on to find a<br />

home for thousands of crafted<br />

hearts sent to the city following<br />

the March 15 mosque attacks.<br />

More than 5000 hearts, along<br />

with messages of support,<br />

flooded in from around the<br />

world after Barkers Wool And<br />

Haberdashery manager Jacquie<br />

Jewell established the initiative<br />

Muslim Hearts of Christchurch.<br />

<strong>The</strong> goal was to collect as many<br />

crafted hearts as possible, made<br />

from knitted, croquet, origami,<br />

mosaic and vintage materials,<br />

to gift to those affected by the<br />

attacks.<br />

Mrs Jewell has now delivered<br />

3000 hearts, along with copies<br />

of messages, to the Al Noor<br />

Mosque, Linwood Islamic<br />

Centre, police and St John. But<br />

she has about 2000 left which she<br />

is hoping to publicly display.<br />

Initially, Mrs Jewell asked for<br />

permission from the city council<br />

to hang the remaining hearts on<br />

a designated tree in the Botanic<br />

Gardens.<br />

But city council Botanic<br />

Gardens and garden parks<br />

director Wolfgang Bopp said it<br />

wanted to maintain one location<br />

(at the Rolleston Ave tribute wall)<br />

where there was ample space to<br />

lay, stand or hang a tribute.<br />

After bringing the matter to<br />

news online at www.star.kiwi<br />

Home needed for March 15 hearts<br />

the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton<br />

Community Board, Mrs Jewell is<br />

now seeking permission to have<br />

the hearts displayed in a city<br />

council facility.<br />

She is looking to place them on<br />

an artificial tree either in the city<br />

council chambers, at the Arts<br />

Centre or the Tūranga library.<br />

Mr Bopp said city council<br />

staff are working to come up<br />

with options for the long-term<br />

WORLDWIDE: Jacquie<br />

Jewell has had more than<br />

attacks. PHOTO: MARTIN<br />

display of the hearts, which may<br />

or may not include exhibition<br />

opportunities in city council<br />

facilities.<br />

Mrs Jewell said while she is<br />

disappointed the city council will<br />

not allow there to be a designated<br />

tree placed in the Botanic<br />

Gardens, she is more excited<br />

about the second option.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y wouldn’t last as long if<br />

they were outside . . . I am excited<br />

to think they are going to be<br />

inside,” Mrs Jewell said.<br />

She said the display will give<br />

the hearts longevity for all the<br />

city to see.<br />

Mrs Jewell said presenting<br />

the crafted hearts with her two<br />

daughters to the two mosques<br />

was a “moving experience”.<br />

“To walk into them (the<br />

mosques), to know what<br />

happened there, I actually felt<br />

numb . . . it was something I will<br />

never forget,” she said.<br />

Concerns over plan<br />

to protect dolphins<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

A MARINE animal expert<br />

and the Black Cat Cruises<br />

boss are concerned a<br />

proposal to protect hector’s<br />

dolphins across New<br />

Zealand leaves the Akaroa<br />

population at risk.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Government’s 40-<br />

page threat management<br />

plan includes protection<br />

measures for the dolphins,<br />

which are<br />

classified as<br />

nationally<br />

vulnerable<br />

with an<br />

estimated<br />

population<br />

of 15,700.<br />

Liz Slooten<br />

Proposed<br />

commercial<br />

and recreational set netting<br />

and trawling restrictions<br />

run north from Banks<br />

Peninsula to Kaikoura,<br />

south to Timaru, and offshore<br />

up to 20 nautical<br />

miles. But the additional<br />

protection does not include<br />

an area of sea around the<br />

south-eastern side of Banks<br />

Peninsula. Instead, the only<br />

option is to maintain the<br />

current restriction of four<br />

nautical miles offshore in<br />

that stretch.<br />

Otago University zoology<br />

professor Liz Slooten said<br />

she has been scratching her<br />

head over the gap in the<br />

proposal.<br />

Said Prof Slooten: “What<br />

they seem to have done is<br />

gone to the areas where the<br />

most dolphins are being<br />

caught right now and<br />

chosen to protect them and<br />

not the areas where not<br />

many dolphins are being<br />

caught.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> problem with that is,<br />

if you close the areas to the<br />

north and restrict fishing to<br />

the south, people are going<br />

to shift into that gap.”<br />

Black Cat Cruises chief<br />

executive Paul Milligan<br />

said he is disappointed the<br />

IN DANGER: <strong>The</strong> proposed expansion of setnetting<br />

and trawling restrictions does not<br />

include an area around Banks Peninsula which is<br />

home to hector’s dolphins.<br />

document has “left out an<br />

area where people know<br />

there are dolphins.”<br />

A Fisheries New Zealand<br />

spokesperson said there is<br />

unlikely to be additional<br />

displaced recreational set<br />

netting given the existing<br />

closures in place.<br />

However, they did<br />

not comment on<br />

the commercial<br />

activities.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> proposals are<br />

looking to extend<br />

the current closures<br />

further offshore<br />

in areas within<br />

Pegasus Bay and the<br />

Canterbury Bight. <strong>The</strong>y are<br />

based on the best scientific<br />

evidence available of the<br />

risks to hector’s and maui<br />

dolphins, which draws on a<br />

range of new information,”<br />

the spokesperson said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> information includes<br />

results from aerial surveys<br />

of dolphin distribution<br />

and abundance, revised<br />

population and subpopulation<br />

estimates,<br />

new dolphin sighting<br />

information from the<br />

public and fisheries<br />

Conservation’s necropsy<br />

programme<br />

Last month, Black Cat<br />

Cruises commissioned a<br />

study by Market Economics<br />

to determine the value<br />

of hector’s dolphins. It<br />

found dolphin-related<br />

eco-tourism brings<br />

almost $25 million<br />

into the New Zealand<br />

economy each year,<br />

with an additional<br />

$3 million to $6<br />

million in associated<br />

tourism activities. It<br />

Paul also found hector’s<br />

Milligan dolphins sustain up<br />

to 476 jobs in the<br />

national economy.<br />

Hector’s dolphin numbers<br />

are estimated to have<br />

decreased by about 74 per<br />

cent over the past 30 years.<br />

<strong>The</strong> National Institute of<br />

Water and Atmospheric<br />

Research estimates up to<br />

100-150 hector’s and maui<br />

dolphins are drowned in set<br />

nets every year.<br />

Public consultation on the<br />

plan closes on August 4.<br />

Catholic Cathedral College To live by faith<br />

Catholic Cathedral College is a special character co-education<br />

school situated in the central city. We are a family focused,<br />

culturally diverse school and we follow the charisms of both<br />

Marcellin Champagnat and the Mission Sisters through our motto<br />

‘To live by faith’. We recognise the unique position of Māori as<br />

Tangata Whenua and<br />

the principles of the<br />

Treaty of Waitangi are<br />

woven throughout<br />

our school life.<br />

We are the only<br />

Catholic Co-ed school<br />

in Christchurch and<br />

people love the family<br />

atmosphere and the<br />

convenience of being<br />

able to send all their<br />

children to one school.<br />

Visitors often comment on the great relationship our students have<br />

with our Staff.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are many opportunities for your child to get involved in<br />

school life here. We have strong Cultural Groups such as Kapa haka,<br />

Pasifika and Filipino, a wide range of sports on offer and a thriving<br />

Music and Drama Department. Watch out for our School Production<br />

of ‘High School Musical’ coming up later this year. If Debating<br />

is more your thing, there is the annual Bishop Lyons Debating<br />

competition, the Junior and Senior Secondary School Debating<br />

competitions and other opportunities such as Youth UN and the<br />

Ethics Olympiad.<br />

We have a great academic track record, with our NCEA results<br />

sitting in the 90s, far exceeding the National average. Our fees are also<br />

extremely reasonable. We are in fact, the best-kept secret in town. We<br />

are not zoned and accept students from Years 7 – 13. Enrolments are<br />

currently open.<br />

Special Character<br />

<strong>The</strong> College has many Special Character groups that are active within<br />

the school and community providing a human face to our motto ‘To<br />

Live By Faith’. <strong>The</strong>se groups, led by our Special Character Leaders, help<br />

prepare liturgies, Special Character events and our weekly college Mass.<br />

A highlight this term was a visit by Bishop Paul Martin, who joined our<br />

School Chaplain, Father Phil Bennenbroek to concelebrate the weekly<br />

Mass on the Feast Day of one of our Founders, Marcellin Champagnat.<br />

Bishop Lyons Debating Competition<br />

Catholic Cathedral College<br />

have won the highly coveted<br />

Bishop Lyons’ Shield for <strong>2019</strong>.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Catholic Cathedral<br />

College team came first<br />

overall, with a first place in<br />

Debating and Senior Speech,<br />

second in Junior Speech and<br />

third in Impromptu speech,<br />

Scripture Reading in Te Reo<br />

and in Religious Questions.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Bishop Lyons’ Shield is a much anticipated event, celebrating the public<br />

speaking and debating skills that are traditionally strong in Catholic schools.<br />

Every year, talented students from the seven Catholic secondary schools<br />

in the Diocese of Christchurch compete for the Shield. Catholic Cathedral<br />

College, Roncalli College (Timaru), John Paul II High School (Greymouth)<br />

St Bede’s College, Villa Maria College, St Thomas of Canterbury College<br />

and Marian College.<br />

<strong>The</strong> competition was established by Bishop Lyons in 1947, when he was<br />

Catholic Bishop of Christchurch. This year the competition was hosted by<br />

Catholic Cathedral College. Hospitality was extended to all visitors over<br />

the weekend with the highlight being the dinner Saturday night, a hungi,<br />

alongside other multi-cultural dishes reflecting the ethnic diversity of the<br />

College community. This was combined with entertainment provided by<br />

the students of Catholic Cathedral and the other Colleges involved. Bishop<br />

Paul presided at the Mass on Sunday for the students, families, teachers<br />

and supporters from the seven Colleges.<br />

Although the competitions were an important part of the weekend,<br />

this was also an opportunity for students from the seven schools to<br />

meet together, network and socialise. Many commented on the great<br />

atmosphere throughout the competition and Catholic Cathedral College<br />

were popular and deserving winners.<br />

Ethics Olympiad<br />

<strong>The</strong> Ethics Olympiad is an Australian competition that started in New<br />

Zealand this year. This was a chance for our students to meet with other<br />

students from 14 secondary schools throughout Christchurch and Otago.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y entered into discussions around tough ethical questions that face<br />

people today. Our team of Nadia Luketina, Jane Barlin, Lucy Sparks,<br />

Thomas Munro and Mia Bringans took on the competition and proved<br />

that they had clear and strong ethical thinking. After three rounds of<br />

heats, our team was chosen to be in the final against Christ’s College. Our<br />

students discussed whether it was ethical to ban killer drones in combat.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Christ’s College team discussed whether it was ethical to bring some<br />

species back from the dead. <strong>The</strong> final was judged by Associate Professor<br />

of Education from Canterbury University, Misty Sato, and Grant Tavinor,<br />

Head of the Human Ethics Committee from Lincoln University.<br />

Catholic Cathedral College won the final, receiving the Gold medal<br />

with the Christ’s College teams receiving the silver and the bronze.<br />

This makes our students the South Island inaugural Ethics Olympiad<br />

Champions. Well done!<br />

Our REMAR and Young Vinnies Group are also active in the<br />

community, visiting the residents of Nazareth House on a regular basis,<br />

helping out in the St Vincent de Paul shop and hosting morning teas for<br />

members of Age Concern. <strong>The</strong> Young Vinnies also organised the very<br />

successful ’40 Bags for Lent’ collection earlier this year, collecting warm<br />

clothes, blankets and toys for those in need.<br />

During the recent ‘Catholic Schools Day’ our senior students came<br />

together with students from Marian College to mark the occasion with<br />

‘Kai and Conversation’.<br />

Sebastian Lipp<br />

SGCNZ University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival<br />

This year our students competed in the SGCNZ University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival and once<br />

again got through to the finals for the ‘Best Student Directed Piece’ Category. Over Queens Birthday weekend Lucy<br />

Sparks, Preston Maluafiti, Elizabeth Finlay-Bliss, Joelina Gutierrez, Mariane Jolejole, Nadia Roza Luketina, along with<br />

our Head of Drama, Charlotte Saunders, flew to Wellington to represent the school in the Festival Finals.<br />

<strong>The</strong> students had a busy four days of workshops and performances at the Michael Fowler Centre. <strong>The</strong>y<br />

also had the opportunity to explore parts of Wellington in their downtime. <strong>The</strong>y performed their scene from<br />

Richard III exceptionally well, and were fortunate enough to have the support of former student, Grace Sparks<br />

as their special effects makeup artist. We were incredibly proud of how well they represented the school, having<br />

put hours and hours into rehearsing and refining their performance. We congratulate Year 13 student Lucy<br />

Sparks, who directed the piece and who has been selected to be part of next year’s SGCNZ Young Shakespeare<br />

Company, a number of whom will travel to the Globe in London.<br />

We congratulate the following students on their Individual successes;<br />

NZ Optimist Nationals<br />

Another talented student is Year 9 student Charlotte Palmer, who in the<br />

school holidays competed in the NZ Optimist Nationals. As a result of this<br />

she has been selected to represent New Zealand in <strong>The</strong> Asians/Oceania<br />

regatta in Oman later this year. <strong>The</strong>re are currently 152 Optimist sailors<br />

extremely excited to get this opportunity.<br />

the works and bid<br />

on them in a silent<br />

Using road<br />

cones to make<br />

city ‘beautiful’<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

A BUSINESS started by a group<br />

of Cashmere High School<br />

students aims to liven the streets<br />

of Christchurch with artistic road<br />

cones.<br />

Christchurch Cones was<br />

launched at the Young Enterprise<br />

Scheme (YES) Market on Monday,<br />

hosted by Ara Institute of<br />

Canterbury.<br />

Year 13 student Tamara Hill<br />

said the group “wanted to make<br />

something that could make the<br />

city beautiful again.”<br />

“We’re going to get people from<br />

the community and our school<br />

to design and paint the cones<br />

themselves and then they’re going<br />

to be put in people’s gardens and<br />

around the city,” she said.<br />

YES sees senior secondary<br />

school-aged entrepreneurs set up<br />

and run real businesses over the<br />

course of a year.<br />

Other ideas at the market included<br />

a mental health cook book<br />

and biodegradable alternatives to<br />

plastic.<br />

Common themes among many<br />

of the projects like tackling issues<br />

of sustainability, mental health or<br />

exploring social enterprise.<br />

HAPPY MATARIKI everyone.<br />

I hope you’re all using this<br />

wintery time of year as a perfectly<br />

appropriate Kiwi cultural excuse<br />

to eat heaps with the family.<br />

Obviously hangi or a generous<br />

roast are the best bets. Vittoria<br />

will be having her first full hangi<br />

meal this Saturday.<br />

Now that I’ve got you thinking<br />

of delicious food and eating, let’s<br />

take this lowbrow and talk about<br />

bodily functions.<br />

Just what you wanted right?<br />

I’ve always counted myself lucky<br />

to have avoided the real nastiness<br />

of parenting babies and toddlers<br />

so far. While my mates have had<br />

all sorts of dramas, I’ve missed (or<br />

dodged) the worst of it.<br />

I still count myself as lucky in<br />

that regard (thankfully), but I got<br />

my first taste of an ‘oh-hell-no’<br />

toiletry nightmare this week.<br />

After coming home from an<br />

activity on Monday a whiff of bad<br />

cabbage cologne told me it was<br />

change time. Luckily, it was all<br />

contained and wasn’t so bad in<br />

the big scheme of things.<br />

I congratulated myself on another<br />

job well done.<br />

She’d wet her pants a little<br />

through the nappy and the house<br />

was warm so I left her just in her<br />

top and nappy for a bit while I<br />

had some lunch in the kitchen<br />

(out of the wee seagull’s view).<br />

<strong>The</strong> true horror began soon after.<br />

Leaving the kitchen, I looked<br />

into the hall and immediately<br />

asked the question: “Is that a wee<br />

jobbie?”<br />

It was. Right there on the floor.<br />

But not just there.<br />

Suffice to say, if it gets on a<br />

shoe that’s about 30cm off the<br />

floor on a rack, you’ve got problems<br />

mate. Lord have mercy.<br />

Round two was too much for her<br />

nappy to handle.<br />

So I rolled up my sleeves (way<br />

up) and got stuck in, battling<br />

through a tantrum, an awful<br />

smell and kicking legs to clean up<br />

TIMBER<br />

TURMOIL:<br />

<strong>The</strong> ocean<br />

view at the<br />

hot salt water<br />

pools being<br />

built in New<br />

Brighton will<br />

be obscured<br />

by timber<br />

slats.<br />

Concern over hot pools views<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

PEOPLE USING the hot water<br />

pools in New Brighton will have<br />

to peer through timber slats to<br />

see the ocean.<br />

<strong>The</strong> $11.2 million pool<br />

is under construction and<br />

expected to open early<br />

next year.<br />

Development<br />

Christchurch Ltd chief<br />

executive Rob Hall said<br />

timber slats from 80cm<br />

to 1.3m tall would be<br />

installed on the beach<br />

side of the pool to protect<br />

users from easterly winds.<br />

Mr Hall said people would still<br />

be able to see the ocean through<br />

the 5cm gaps between the timber<br />

slats.<br />

“A solid glass fence was<br />

considered, however, we know<br />

that sea spray quickly turns glass<br />

opaque and unsightly, and a<br />

Robbie<br />

Baigent<br />

solid glass fence would also cause<br />

unpleasant downdrafts for pool<br />

users,” he said.<br />

New Brighton Project coordinator<br />

Martha Baxendell is<br />

concerned the slats will obscure<br />

the view.<br />

“I think the<br />

biggest thing that<br />

we wanted to<br />

know was that we<br />

were still in New<br />

Brighton. I just<br />

hope it is not this<br />

big old fence that<br />

we can hardly see<br />

through, “ she<br />

said.<br />

New Brighton resident Robbie<br />

Baigent said the community has<br />

been sold one thing and given<br />

another.<br />

“All the early imagery showed<br />

a fence, but with a series of glass<br />

panels which I would have had no<br />

problem with,” he said.<br />

Martha<br />

Baxendell<br />

“It’s just a real shame, we have<br />

got one of the most amazing<br />

vistas across the city.”<br />

New Brighton Business<br />

and Landowners Association<br />

chairwoman Rebecca Tavete is<br />

confident the hot pools will<br />

still be a success.<br />

“I don’t think many people<br />

will be going to the pool to<br />

look at the ocean anyway.<br />

If you look at Hanmer and<br />

the hot pools there you are<br />

either sitting around gazing<br />

into your partner’s eyes or<br />

you are sitting around with<br />

some friends chatting away,”<br />

she said.<br />

Coastal Ward city councillor<br />

David East labelled the fence a<br />

“win-win” situation.<br />

“From the point of view of<br />

breaking wind, it makes sense.<br />

I also think it is possible to have<br />

a more than adequate view with<br />

the slats,” he said.<br />

Code brown, repeat, code brown<br />

RELAXED: Vittoria and I had an afternoon in the park to<br />

move on from the trauma of a nightmare code brown.<br />

the offending nightmare and get<br />

away from thoughts of a digested<br />

meal as possible.<br />

Thieves target<br />

garden again<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

A GARDEN designed for<br />

children with disabilities has<br />

been hit by its fourth theft since<br />

opening.<br />

<strong>The</strong> SmileDial Different Type<br />

of Perfect Sensory Garden<br />

located at Rawhiti Domain had<br />

several plants stolen again last<br />

week.<br />

<strong>The</strong> empty<br />

spots where<br />

two swan<br />

plants and<br />

one mediumsized<br />

tree<br />

once were<br />

was noticed<br />

Sam Hall<br />

on <strong>June</strong> 19.<br />

Smiledial<br />

managing<br />

director Sam Hall said it appeared<br />

the thieves only took a<br />

few smaller trees this time and<br />

attempted to get more but may<br />

have been disturbed.<br />

“It’s a bit disappointing<br />

considering it’s quite a special<br />

place for us and for people with<br />

disabilities and special needs.<br />

It’s our home . . . it’s where everyone<br />

goes to get away from the<br />

mainstream playgrounds,” said<br />

Mr Hall.<br />

JULY 1 is the beginning of the<br />

new financial year, which was the<br />

subject of debate this week at city<br />

council when we confirmed the<br />

<strong>2019</strong>/2020 Annual Plan.<br />

We dealt with a number of<br />

issues while still keeping the rates<br />

increase below the level we had<br />

budgeted.<br />

I reinforced our commitment<br />

to providing safe drinking water<br />

that is good to drink – and in<br />

Christchurch City that means<br />

without a chlorine residual in the<br />

network.<br />

I remain concerned about the<br />

approach the Government may<br />

take in this regard. We consider<br />

mandatory chlorine treatment to<br />

be an unnecessarily prescriptive<br />

approach that is not supported<br />

by evidence from drinking water<br />

supplies across the world.<br />

While we are on the<br />

subject of drinking, July 1<br />

is also the beginning of Dry<br />

Mayor<br />

Lianne Dalziel<br />

STOLEN: A garden<br />

designed for children with<br />

disabilities has been hit by<br />

thieves again.<br />

He said the theft was “awful<br />

timing” as a family associated<br />

with the charity lost a child last<br />

week.<br />

In August 2017, thieves used<br />

shovels to uproot seven fruit<br />

trees, several of which were<br />

planted in a memory garden by<br />

parents who had lost a child.<br />

Several signs at the garden<br />

state its meaning.<br />

A planting day will be held at<br />

the garden on Saturday morning<br />

to replace the lost plants.<br />

Financial year<br />

starts next week,<br />

so does Dry July<br />

July, a campaign which asks<br />

participants to fundraise to<br />

support people affected by<br />

cancer, by not drinking any<br />

alcohol for the month of July.<br />

I haven’t signed up to this for<br />

a while, but I have this year to<br />

support the Look Good, Feel<br />

Better charity.<br />

You’ve heard the joke – ‘three<br />

men walk into a bar . . .’ – that’s<br />

actually how the Dry July<br />

campaign started in Australia.<br />

Three guys wanted to take a<br />

break from drinking for a month<br />

and asked family and friends to<br />

sponsor them to support a family<br />

member with cancer. <strong>The</strong>y raised<br />

way more than they thought they<br />

would.<br />

Visit the website dryjuly.co.nz<br />

who has.<br />

You will feel better for it and<br />

help someone with cancer feel<br />

better too.

Did you settle your earthquake claim with<br />

Southern Response before 1 October 2014?<br />

You may have been short<br />

changed on your payout<br />

Advertising FeAture<br />

Southern Response used two different versions of detailed repair/rebuild analysis reports (DRAs). It<br />

produced one version for you ¬– its customer – and one for itself. <strong>The</strong>ir own version included all sorts<br />

of costs not included in the version they gave you. Unsurprisingly, it paid you out based on your version.<br />

Following a court decision, Southern Response decided to pay policyholders for those extra amounts –<br />

but only for claims that were settled after 1 October 2014. If you settled before that date,<br />

you may have missed out on money due to you.<br />

JOINING A CLASS ACTION IS<br />

NOT YOUR BEST OPTION<br />

GCA Lawyers, bankrolled by an Australian<br />

funder, is currently locking people into<br />

a class action involving up to 3000 other<br />

home owners (and we suggest you check<br />

the fine print on that VERY carefully).<br />

Unfortunately class actions typically take<br />

years to settle – sometimes up to a decade.<br />

That’s partly because there is no incentive<br />

for the people running the claim to settle<br />

early, in fact it’s the opposite because the<br />

longer any class action takes the more<br />

money the law firms on both sides make.<br />

What’s more, because you’re just one<br />

person out of thousands, GCA Lawyers<br />

will make important decisions for you<br />

– including when to settle and for how<br />

much! You have no control over this.<br />

If their claim is successful they’ll also help<br />

themselves to anywhere from 17.5-<strong>27</strong>.5%<br />

of YOUR SETTLEMENT. And that’s on top of<br />

the legal fees they will charge you!<br />

If GCA’s action is unsuccessful though,<br />

that’s it. You will NEVER AGAIN be able<br />

to take any legal action against Southern<br />

Response on the same issues.<br />

YOUR HOME – you won’t have to do<br />

all at the same time, and your case<br />

won’t get bogged down for years due<br />

to the details involved in other peoples’<br />

claims.<br />

• You’ll have total control and will be<br />

making all the important decisions,<br />

including when you want to agree to a<br />

settlement.<br />

resolved much more quickly.<br />

of your lawyer, and any costs we pay to<br />

progress the case*. And you won’t need<br />

to pay that till your case ends.<br />

BETTER<br />

HEALTH<br />

FOR ALL<br />

C ommunity inf luencer<br />

Wholistic health therapies have been<br />

Sandra Curle’s passion for the forty plus<br />

years she has worked in the healthcare<br />

industry. Facilitating therapies and<br />

processes which help a person identify<br />

their core health ailments in order to heal<br />

and move toward optimum health, has<br />

been her quest.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Better Health Clinic offers the<br />

following services: <strong>The</strong> Avatar System for<br />

testing and recording of toxins, including<br />

heavy metals, radiation, chemicals,<br />

bacteria, mercury, etc.<br />

And…<br />

Better Health also offers CranioSacral<br />

<strong>The</strong>rapy which is a light-touch approach<br />

which can create dramatic improvements<br />

by releasing tensions deep in the body<br />

to relieve pain and improve whole-body<br />

health and performance.<br />

“I love what I do and the results my<br />

patients have had.” Sandra shared.<br />

WE ASKED SANDRA<br />

THE FOLLOWING:<br />

What is the benefit of an Avatar<br />

reading?<br />

In today’s environment, the human body<br />

is laden with toxins from just about<br />

everything. For instance, the air we<br />

breathe, the foods we eat, the cosmetics<br />

and hygiene products we use. Cleaning<br />

supplies, automobile and yard products.<br />

People often forget the body is like<br />

a sponge and absorbs chemicals and<br />

toxins and holds onto them within the<br />

body systems. In time, when the body<br />

is overloaded, illness takes over and the<br />

immune system breaks down. This is<br />

where the Avatar system comes into play.<br />

Ridding the body of pollutants<br />

After an Avatar reading, remedies are<br />

determined in the form of drops, like<br />

homeopathy, which are customised for<br />

each client based upon their reading.<br />

<strong>The</strong> drops act as a detoxification<br />

process focused on supporting the body<br />

with flushing out the toxins and are<br />

customised remedies for each person,<br />

based upon their reading results.<br />

What ages are Avatar readings<br />

safe?<br />

All ages, all sexes and all animals, too.<br />

Benefits<br />

Natural, nontoxic with great results.<br />

ELGAR Cello Concerto in E Minor<br />

FARR Roar of a Thousand Tigers<br />

(World Premiere)<br />

Gareth Farr’s newly commissioned orchestral<br />

work, Roar of a Thousand Tigers, takes<br />

its name from Sherpa Tenzing Norgay’s<br />

description to Sir Edmund Hillary of the<br />

violent, high altitude icy winds that buffet<br />

the uppermost slopes of Mount Everest. It is<br />

a symphonic homage to possibly the most<br />

famous New Zealander of all time - and the<br />

summit that he and Tenzing first reached in<br />

1953.<br />

In celebration of the 100 years since the<br />

birth of Sir Edmund, with the support of<br />

Creative New Zealand, the symphony was<br />

commissioned by the Hillary Centenary<br />

Steering Committee.<br />

Performing Elgar’s intensely emotional<br />

concerto, Russian-born cellist Lev Sivkov<br />

has won 1st prize in a number of prestigious<br />

music competitions, including the 2015<br />

Naumburg International Cello Competition.<br />

He is currently Principal Cello with<br />

Philharmonia Zurich and performs across<br />

Europe as a soloist and chamber musician.<br />

Douglas Lilburn’s Aotearoa Overture explores<br />

the shimmer of light on the sea surrounding<br />

the New Zealand coastline. Lilburn wished to<br />

reflect a sense of freshness and exhilaration<br />

in this, one of his earlier symphonic<br />

compositions.<br />

NEURONS THAT FIRE<br />

TOGETHER, WIRE TOGETHER<br />

Aristotle was right, we are what we repeatedly do,<br />

but modern neuroscientists would add that we<br />

are also what we repeatedly think.<br />

Neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to make<br />

new neural pathways based on the information it<br />

receives, isn’t new (our brains have always been<br />

plastic); what is new is our understanding of this<br />

phenomenon.<br />

This is probably best summarised by the adage,<br />

‘Neurons that fire together wire together’.<br />

In other words, if you think a thought or perform<br />

an action often enough, the neurons that are<br />

responsible for executing those thoughts and<br />

actions will start to join together to form new<br />

neural pathways to accommodate them.<br />

For example, if you constantly think about a pain<br />

you are experiencing, the brain will create neural<br />

pathways to make accessing that pain easier.<br />

However, as soon as you accept you have pain,<br />

the brain will begin to re-route away from pain<br />

and towards acceptance. And, if you can make<br />

acceptance your default mode, the pain usually<br />

becomes much easier to manage (simple but not<br />

easy).<br />

To some degree this is what the placebo effect is<br />

all about i.e. you take a pill that you think will<br />

relieve your pain, the brain starts to re-route to<br />

accommodate that thought and, hey presto, the<br />

pain abates.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are lots of things you can do to promote<br />

brain plasticity, but let’s focus on three:<br />

1. Aerobic exercise that gets a sweat up creates<br />

a protein called Brain Derived Neurotrophic<br />

Factor (BDNF) and BDNF is considered to be<br />

‘fertiliser for the brain’. So, while a stroll in the<br />

park is beneficial on a number of levels, if you<br />

really want to energise your brain, a fast walk<br />

that elevates your heart rate is much better.<br />

2. If you want your brain to learn new stuff,<br />

focused repetition (practice) is essential. Practice<br />

makes perfect, right? Nope, perfect practice<br />

makes perfect. Watch the average golfer spraying<br />

balls left, right and centre on the driving range<br />

and ask yourself what kind of plasticity is likely<br />

to occur.<br />

3. <strong>The</strong> celebrated neuroscientist Michael<br />

Merzenich, says older people are good at creating<br />

negative neuroplasticity, aka ‘you can’t teach an<br />

old dog new tricks’ syndrome. As it turns out,<br />

not only can Rover learn new stuff, if he makes<br />

learning new stuff a habit there’s a good chance<br />

his brain will remain flexible into old age, which<br />

has significant implications for those of you who<br />

are concerned about dementia in its many guises.<br />

To summarise: <strong>The</strong> discovery that our brains<br />

are plastic is a potential game-changer, but only<br />

if you feed your brain with helpful thoughts,<br />

exercise with the objective of getting out of puff,<br />

practice stuff you want to learn as perfectly as<br />

possible and stay engaged in the game of life.<br />

RESEARCH<br />

SHOWS<br />

IMPORTANCE<br />

OF EXERCISE<br />

IN CANCER<br />

CARE<br />

Exercise New Zealand chief executive<br />

Richard Beddie today backed United<br />

Kingdom research which is showing the<br />

benefits of exercise for people who have<br />

had cancer.<br />

Research at Northumbria University,<br />

Newcastle, has been investigating the<br />

important role that structured exercise<br />

programmes can play in living with and<br />

after recovery.<br />

Beddie says the evidence of the benefits<br />

of exercise as medicine, is growing.<br />

“With everything from mental health<br />

to heart disease it is now being well<br />

understood that exercise works in<br />

prevention, and in many cases beneficial<br />

during treatment, alongside more<br />

traditional medical interventions,” he<br />

says.<br />

“New research shows the benefits of<br />

exercise for those with cancer, both<br />

during and post treatment.<br />

“With the financial demands on the New<br />

Zealand health system growing every<br />

day, we need to look at innovative and<br />

cost-effective ways of enhancing existing<br />

treatments, as well as preventing the<br />

need for some treatments in the first<br />

place.<br />

“Exercise professionals are now<br />

being recognised in their role<br />

working alongside other allied health<br />

professionals. Specialist training for<br />

exercise professionals is now available in<br />

New Zealand to help them understand<br />

the specific needs of those with long<br />

term health conditions.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> UK research report says cancers<br />

of the breast, prostate and colon are<br />

amongst the most common in western<br />

societies. Although survival rates are<br />

increasing, the physical and mental<br />

impacts of these cancers and their<br />

treatments are long-lasting.<br />

Physical activity and structured<br />

exercise have an important role to play<br />

in alleviating the physiological and<br />

psychological impact of cancer and its<br />

treatments, their report says.<br />

Cancer is now considered a chronic<br />

condition because more people are living<br />

longer after a cancer diagnosis. <strong>The</strong><br />

UK research was about using physical<br />

exercise as part of lifestyle interventions<br />

to improve the health of people living<br />

with and beyond cancer.<br />

UC STUDIES<br />

LURE OF THE ICE ENTICES<br />

BRIGHT YOUNG RESEARCHERS<br />

Antarctica continues to call bright young researchers to her<br />

icy shores, and scholarships are making their ground-breaking<br />

research at University of Canterbury (UC) possible.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y are the top of the top,” UC’s Gateway Antarctica director<br />

Professor Wolfgang Rack says of the two students who accepted<br />

scholarships last week, Shinae Montie and Rose Foster. “I am<br />

looking forward to the research they produce. It is amazing, the<br />

difference they can make, because they are really at the forefront<br />

of new knowledge that is relevant to global change.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> Christchurch City Council (CCC), ChristchurchNZ and<br />

the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) contribute to<br />

scholarships for Antarctic research at UC.<br />

Montie was awarded a $5000 MFAT<br />

scholarship for her research using satellite<br />

remote sensing to detect heatwaves in the<br />

Antarctic Ocean.<br />

“We should be more worried about<br />

heatwaves in the ocean than gradual<br />

warming,” she says.<br />

Twice they flew to Antarctica, but adverse<br />

weather prevented the plane landing. For<br />

these passionate young researchers, who<br />

had only dreamed of visiting Antarctica, it<br />

was hard work.<br />

“It was an emotional rollercoaster,” Foster<br />

says. “When we finally walked out onto<br />

the ice, I just burst into tears!”<br />

Foster was inspired by David<br />

Attenborough’s pioneering Frozen<br />

Planet documentary to give up her flight<br />

attendant job and “do more to help the<br />

planet. <strong>The</strong> main aspects of polar ecology<br />

that interest me are understanding how<br />

species have adapted to living in such<br />

extreme environments, understanding<br />

the impact climate change is having<br />

on them now and in the future, and<br />

also participating in research which<br />

contributes to the development of effective<br />

conservation initiatives to mitigate these<br />

impacts,” she says.<br />

<strong>The</strong> trip to the ice was beyond everything<br />

she could have imagined, she says. “It has<br />

ignited my motivation for studying and<br />

conserving the vulnerable species that call<br />

the frozen parts of our planet ‘home’.”<br />

Montie’s interest in Antarctica developed<br />

earlier, during her final years of high<br />

school.<br />

“I began to explore electives that could<br />

accompany my degree in ecology. I<br />

have always been drawn to the marine<br />

environment; however, my focus has since<br />

shifted towards the Southern Ocean. I now<br />

know that I want to dedicate my career to<br />

understanding, learning, educating and<br />

protecting the Antarctic, and the Southern<br />

Ocean region in particular.”<br />

Both students paid tribute to the<br />

organisations who had helped to<br />

facilitate their research and as part of<br />

the Postgraduate Certificate in Antarctic<br />

Studies, UC offers an 8 to 10 day field<br />

course at Scott Base and in Windless<br />

Bight, Antarctica, comprising a mix of<br />

analytical projects (data and information<br />

gathering, analysis and interpretation)<br />

and interpretative exercises. Antarctic<br />

field training and the experience of living<br />

and working in the polar environment are<br />

additional components of this course.<br />

THE NEW<br />

508 GT<br />

BY ROSS KIDDIE<br />

Everyone who laid eyes on it said what a beautiful<br />

car – elegant, luxurious and downright classy.<br />

<strong>The</strong>se comments referred to the entire design of<br />

Peugeot’s new 508 GT Fastback, and I could see<br />

by the looks from other motorists it was certainly<br />

capturing interest. I’m not arguing against that, but<br />

you’d expect nothing less from this exciting French<br />

automobile manufacturer.<br />

Yes, the 508 GT has definite appeal, the style is<br />

sleek and the interior is simply gorgeous. However,<br />

it’s not perfect; while Peugeot have created an<br />

upmarket cabin layout, I found some of the<br />

secondary control buttons frustrating, they don’t<br />

have any haptic feel and sometimes you don’t<br />

believe that the button has generated the function<br />

you want, so you push it again and it takes you to<br />

where you don’t want to be.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re is some sound upon activation, but it’s quiet,<br />

which could be problematic for those in theLiving<br />

Life demographic who may suffer from age-related<br />

hearing loss.<br />

This is all very minor, and after almost two weeks<br />

in the test car I grew to understand it and enjoyed<br />

it immensely. Some might suggest the 508’s 1.6-litre<br />

engine isn’t true grand tourer material, but when<br />

the go pedal is given a bit of a nudge the Fastback<br />

certainly scampers along.<br />

For the record, Peugeot rate the turbocharged fourpotter<br />

at 169kW and 300Nm, both outputs realised<br />

where you want them, low in the rev band at<br />

5500rpm and 2500rpm. As a consequence, power<br />

is generally accessible without lag. As a vehicle, the<br />

508 is a big car, but there’s no suggestion the engine<br />

isn’t up to task, it is one of the sweetest engines to<br />

come out of the Peugeot/Citroen factories, and I<br />

simply adore it.<br />

Power is channelled through to the front wheels<br />

through an eight-speed automatic gearbox.<br />

Interestingly, the 508 gets a manual drive mode<br />

that can be selected at will, there are also comfort<br />

and sport modes. Each has its own significance, but<br />

I chose to use normal/comfort mode mostly, only<br />

accessing the others for evaluation purposes.<br />

Certainly, in the sport or manual setting the GT’s<br />

character comes out, it is lively and constantly<br />

eager. For the record, the 508 will lunge to<br />

100km/h from a standstill in 7.3sec, and will make<br />

a highway overtake – 80-120km/h – in 4.6sec.<br />

On the subject of figures, if you aren’t stirring<br />

the engine to work that turbo boost, it is also<br />

surprisingly economical. Peugeot claims a<br />

combined average cycle of 5.7-litres per 100km<br />

(49mpg); during my time in the GT it was<br />

constantly listing around 7.6l/100km (37mpg)<br />

with a 4.7l/100km (63mpg) instantaneous figure at<br />

100km/h (engine speed 1600rpm).<br />

I took the test car through some of the windy<br />

peninsula roads and I knew I wasn’t going to<br />

be disappointed with its handling. For many<br />

years Peugeot has been the champion in terms<br />

of suspension and ride quality versus handling<br />

control. <strong>The</strong> 508 has a glorious ride, it’s almost<br />

un-GT-like with soft spring and damper rates, but<br />

it also offers the control you would want in a sports<br />

sedan/liftback.<br />

Riding on high quality Michelin rubber (235/40<br />

x 19in), steerage is millimetre precise and turnin<br />

is direct. At just 1.4m the 508 sits low, body<br />

movement is unaffected by gravitational change,<br />

it is kept even by the suspension along with<br />

complete absorption through the four-corner, fully<br />

independent system.<br />

At $55,990 ($57,990 with nappa leather), it also sits<br />

appealingly in the marketplace. It is a car built with<br />

plenty of French flair, pride, passion and panache,<br />

competing well against competition from its<br />

European counterparts.<br />

At these prices it punches well above its weight,<br />

and if you add in build quality and level of kit, it is<br />

one very desirable grand tourer.<br />

THEATRE/ARTS 33<br />

Award puts musician on world stage<br />

A FORMER Rangi Ruru Girls’<br />

School student is a member of an<br />

emerging London-based string<br />

quartet that has been awarded<br />

the top prize in an international<br />

music competition.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Marmen Quartet, which<br />

Bryony Gibson-Cornish is a member<br />

of, was named a joint winner<br />

of <strong>The</strong> Grand Prize at the <strong>2019</strong><br />

Bordeaux International String<br />

Quartet Competition, along with<br />

Simply Quartets last week.<br />

<strong>The</strong> prize included €20,000<br />

(NZ$34,284) and a three-year<br />

international tour.<br />

This will launch Gibson-<br />

Cornish and her quartet, formally<br />

onto the world stage in the highly<br />

competitive world of professional<br />

chamber music.<br />

<strong>The</strong> talented 26-year-old was<br />

a music scholar at Rangi Ruru<br />

between 2006 and 2009.<br />

On leaving, she studied viola<br />

and voice at Canterbury University<br />

after which she won a<br />

Fulbright Scholarship, along with<br />

several others.<br />

This allowed her to study for a<br />

Master of Music degree in viola at<br />

<strong>The</strong> Juilliard School in New York.<br />

Gibson-Cornish then relocated<br />

to London to study for her artist<br />

diploma at the Royal College of<br />

Music, where she was awarded<br />

the Tagore Gold Medal upon<br />

graduation.<br />

Based in London, Gibson-Cornish<br />

was also recently appointed<br />

No. 2 viola with the London<br />

Mozart Players, the United<br />

Kingdom’s longest established<br />

chamber orchestra.<br />

In addition, she freelances with<br />

other orchestras, each job taking<br />

her all over the world, and is a<br />

teaching assistant to her former<br />

professor at the Royal College of<br />

Music.<br />

Gibson-Cornish has kept in<br />

touch with the music department<br />

at Rangi Ruru, and has been back<br />

to assist with chamber music<br />

coaching and mentoring several<br />

times, including a week-long<br />

residency in 2017.<br />

“My time at Rangi set me up<br />

to have the ideal mindset as a<br />

musician forging a career path<br />

overseas,” she said.<br />

Gibson-Cornish said the school<br />

atmosphere was encouraging and<br />

inspiring.<br />

“I really felt like it was possible<br />

to aim for the stars.’’<br />

EMERGING STAR: Former Rangi Ruru Girls’ School<br />

student Bryony Gibson-Cornish is a member of <strong>The</strong><br />

Marmen Quartet which was named a joint winner of <strong>The</strong><br />

Grand Prize at the <strong>2019</strong> Bordeaux International String<br />

Quartet Competition. Since graduating, Gibson-Cornish<br />

GARDENING ADVICE<br />

Today’s winning question came<br />

from Maria Allan Kennedy.<br />

Congratulations!<br />

In the last few months, one spot<br />

Q in my garden has been affected<br />

by what I understand to be<br />

‘clubroot’. I have been advised<br />

to plant different veggies there and/or<br />

spread dolomite lime. Is this correct and<br />

can you suggest a remedy?<br />

A<br />

WIN a Daltons Rose Care and Planting Pack!<br />

Clubroot mainly affects Brassicas such as<br />

cabbages and cauliflowers. This disease can be<br />

identified by the appearance of thick, swollen roots<br />

that prevent healthy growth of the host plant. You<br />

are correct in stating that applications of dolomite<br />

lime are a successful means of controlling clubroot.<br />

Crop rotation in your veggie garden would also be a good<br />

idea. Remember that if the same crop is grown in the same<br />

area, in the same ground for several years in succession,<br />

two undesirable things can happen. First, the same plant<br />

nutrients are taken continually from the soil and second, if<br />

the particular crop being grown has a disease that is present<br />

in the soil, in this case club root, then the disease will be<br />

encouraged to multiply in the ground.<br />

Leave applying generous quantities of the dolomite lime to<br />

your garden until spring (when preparing your summer veggie<br />

garden), rather than applying it in winter when most of the<br />

lime will be washed away.<br />

For growing advice and information on<br />

products visit www.daltons.co.nz<br />

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

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

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

for strong, healthy blooms.<br />

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

Protect your pruned roses from frost<br />

THERE IS more written about<br />

pruning roses than almost any<br />

other aspect of their care.<br />

Yet, why do we prune our<br />

roses?<br />

Here are a few key reasons:<br />

Encourage new growth and<br />

more blooms. Maintain the<br />

health of the rose by removing<br />

old wood, improve air circulation<br />

within the bush.<br />

Maintain a specific shape,<br />

especially for climbing and pillar<br />

roses, and those that are pegged<br />

down.<br />

Not all roses have the same<br />

need to be pruned, some just<br />

need an annual “going over’’<br />

after flowering to remove the<br />

dead wood. Other roses, most<br />

notably the highly bred hybrid<br />

teas and floribundas, need regular<br />

pruning. If you garden on a<br />

light, sandy soil then prune your<br />

roses only lightly as they will not<br />

be able to support the vigorous<br />

new growth that hard pruning<br />

encourages.<br />

<strong>The</strong> time to tackle pruning<br />

is in the winter while they are<br />

dormant, before they burst into<br />

growth. In some areas of New<br />

Zealand, and in some seasons,<br />

there may seem to be almost<br />

no period of dormancy and so<br />

you must choose your moment<br />

carefully. So do not prune when<br />

there is still a risk of severe frost,<br />

as any new growth will be frosted<br />

and die back.<br />

You will have to cut back to<br />

the next bud, reducing the plant<br />

further.<br />

Most bush roses flower on the<br />

current year’s growth.<br />

A hard prune will produce<br />

more vigorous new growth.<br />

Remove the oldest cane on the<br />

plant; this keeps the bush fresh<br />

and vigorous.<br />

<strong>The</strong>n reduce thick, strong stems<br />

by about half their height. Thin<br />

canes need to be cut back to onethird<br />

their height.<br />

Try to keep the centre of the<br />

plant open. A mess of spindly,<br />

twiggy growth in the middle<br />

of the plant restricts light and<br />

air circulation, encouraging<br />

disease.<br />

HEALTH: Hard pruning roses will produce more vigorous<br />

growth.<br />

Bad boy to businessman<br />

Being expelled from<br />

school for fighting and<br />

living out of a car was<br />

an unlikely pathway<br />

to rugby success for<br />

one of the Crusaders<br />

most influential players.<br />

Gordon Findlater<br />

reports<br />

•Over the Super Rugby season, <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> will look back each<br />

week at some of the identities who graced the Crusaders<br />

jersey in the past and discover where they are now<br />

RON CRIBB is a prime example<br />

of how the Crusaders can turn<br />

an Auckland bad boy into All<br />

Blacks material.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 42-year-old father-of-two<br />

is now a well-established figure<br />

in the business world. However,<br />

he is best remembered in this<br />

part of New Zealand for scoring<br />

the Crusaders only try in their<br />

20-19 win over the Brumbies in<br />

the 2000 Super Rugby final.<br />

<strong>The</strong> No 8 scored in his<br />

signature style by putting<br />

through a grubber kick to<br />

himself before crossing the line.<br />

<strong>The</strong> try was one of seven in a<br />

season which also saw him cross<br />

the line in the semi-final against<br />

the Highlanders.<br />

Cribb’s performances in red<br />

and black throughout the 2000<br />

season set him up to make<br />

15 appearances for the All<br />

Blacks over the next two years.<br />

However, it could have easily<br />

turned out very differently –<br />

he grew up with a reputation<br />

for bad behaviour in West<br />

Auckland.<br />

Cribb played rugby league<br />

until he was 17. He was a student<br />

at Auckland’s Rutherford<br />

College at the same time as<br />

Kiwis representatives Robbie and<br />

Henry Paul. However, his days<br />

there were cut short when he was<br />

expelled for fighting. He then<br />

moved to Massey High School,<br />

where he joined his childhood<br />

friend Troy Flavell.<br />

“I was getting into a bit of<br />

trouble there (Massey High)<br />

and they encouraged us to leave<br />

school,” said Cribb.<br />

“I look back and I’m pretty<br />

embarrassed of my behaviour. I<br />

was quite aggressive, causing a<br />

bit of trouble and bullying.”<br />

Through a technicality, Cribb’s<br />

father found a way to keep his<br />

son at school. However, one of<br />

the conditions of his attendance<br />

was that he play for Massey’s first<br />

XV.<br />

“My first year I wasn’t in the<br />

rugby system at all and then<br />

Russell Jones selected me for<br />

North Harbour,” said Cribb.<br />

“We ended up finishing third<br />

in the school competition and<br />

when I got home there was<br />

a letter saying you’ve been<br />

selected to play for the New<br />

Zealand Schools and you’re off to<br />

England, Scotland and Wales for<br />

eight weeks.<br />

“All of a sudden I was the first<br />

New Zealand schoolboy from<br />

Massey and it was a big deal. <strong>The</strong><br />

school was all over the awards<br />

and in the paper, so all of a<br />

sudden, I went from zero to hero<br />

. . . I took advantage of that being<br />

the little s**t I was and wore<br />

whatever I wanted to school. I<br />

had a lot of growing up to do<br />

that’s for sure.”<br />

Following school, Cribb went<br />

through what he describes as a<br />

rough patch.<br />

He made the New Zealand<br />

under-19 squad while living out<br />

of a car due to problems at home.<br />

Cribb says his former under-19<br />

coach still tells the story about<br />

him sleeping in a car to motivate<br />

players who don’t turn up to<br />

training.<br />

“At night I had a dog which<br />

kept me company. I did 10km<br />

runs in the evening and I would<br />

eat at friends or have a shower at<br />

friends where I could . . . I used<br />

my sport as an avenue to get me<br />

back on track because I went off<br />

the rails for a bit, but I stayed<br />

focused as much as I could,” said<br />

Cribb.<br />

“I went through a lot of<br />

injuries because I didn’t<br />

understand the importance of<br />

nutrition. I over trained and<br />

was undernourished, so I was<br />

constantly getting sick.”<br />

In 1998, Cribb made 13<br />

appearances and scored six tries<br />

for North Harbour in the NPC.<br />

He looked sure to have a career<br />

at the Blues in 1999 before being<br />

dropped.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y dropped me for<br />

something that wasn’t even<br />

correct. In fact I was actually<br />

trying to help a teammate, so I<br />

was pretty devastated,” he said.<br />

Cribb went back to club rugby<br />

in Auckland before getting a<br />

phone call from Wayne Smith<br />

midway through the season<br />

after regular Crusaders No 8<br />

Steve Surridge suffered a serious<br />

injury. He initially thought he<br />

was being pranked by Troy<br />

Flavell, but Cribb was asked by<br />

Smith to move south and join<br />

the Crusaders.<br />

“I went down and they did a<br />

3km run and I came last, even<br />

though I did it 12min, but Con<br />

Barrell beat me in the last 100m.<br />

I was pretty gutted to come last<br />

because I’m quite competitive,”<br />

he said.<br />

Cribb says he asked the<br />

coaching team to give him a<br />

chance and agreed to put in<br />

extra training to bring his fitness<br />

up to speed.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Crusaders coaching staff<br />

were also the first to encourage<br />

Cribb’s flamboyant style of play<br />

after previous coaches had told<br />

him forwards don’t kick the ball.<br />

EXCITING: Ron Cribb<br />

wasn’t afraid to show off<br />

his footwork while gracing<br />

the Crusaders No 8 jersey.<br />

(Above) – Cribb is now<br />

the national relationship<br />

manager at Metro<br />

Performance Glass after<br />

making a career for himself<br />

in the corporate world.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y were the first coaches I<br />

had which encouraged that. <strong>The</strong>y<br />

said we didn’t bring you down<br />

here to hit rucks, we brought you<br />

down here to get the ball in your<br />

hands and do the stuff we know<br />

that you can do, which was quite<br />

refreshing,” said Cribb.<br />

“Canterbury changed my<br />

whole mind-set, I started seeing<br />

things differently. Guys like<br />

Shag [Steve Hansen] had a huge<br />

influence in that; he kept me<br />

grounded every week.”<br />

Following his breakout 2000<br />

title-winning campaign with the<br />

Crusaders, Cribb returned to the<br />

Blues in 2001.<br />

However, a series of injuries<br />

and a knee reconstruction<br />

limited his play at the highest<br />

level.<br />

In late 2003, he joined the<br />

Kobelco Steelers in Japan. After<br />

five seasons there, he played<br />

one season with Ravigo in Italy<br />

before returning to New Zealand<br />

to be closer to his son and<br />

daughter.<br />

In 2010, he hoped to sign<br />

off with one last showing for<br />

North Harbour, but a prolapsed<br />

disc in his neck which caused a<br />

trip to the hospital also revealed<br />

a broken collarbone he’d had for<br />

six weeks.<br />

“I was wondering why I was<br />

struggling to lift in the lineout,<br />

I thought I was just getting old,”<br />

said Cribb.<br />

Following his rugby playing<br />

career, Cribb had a brief stint<br />

in real estate before being told<br />

about a role as an account<br />

manager at Fletcher Steel.<br />

“I had no qualifications or<br />

anything so I was starting from<br />

scratch, which is really hard, but<br />

I won them over with one answer<br />

really,” said Cribb.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y said to me, so you’re<br />

role is you’re going to have<br />

customers that will potentially<br />

be let down and it will be outside<br />

of your control, how are you<br />

going to deal with that? I said,<br />

can I answer that as a question<br />

. . . have you ever let down four<br />

and a half million people? I<br />

think I can handle one or two let<br />

downs.”<br />

After putting the HR<br />

department into stitches, he got<br />

the job and worked there for two<br />

years. He then took on a national<br />

key account manager roles at<br />

Tasman Insulation and Mitre<br />

10. Cribb is now the national<br />

relationship manager at Metro<br />

Performance Glass.<br />

Cribb says his ability to<br />

move into the corporate world<br />

following rugby is one of the<br />

accomplishments he is most<br />

proud of in his life.<br />

“I was given a contract with<br />

North Harbour during my last<br />

year of high school and I really<br />

didn’t have anything else . . .<br />

a lot of the skills I’ve learnt<br />

through rugby I’ve transitioned<br />

into the corporate arena. It’s little<br />

things like the way you think<br />

when you make a decision,” said<br />

Cribb.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re’s a lot of people in the<br />

corporate arena that will make<br />

decisions that best suit them or<br />

make them look good.<br />

“I’m more what’s good for<br />

the business and the team?<br />

I understand individuals,<br />

different characters and different<br />

values all coming under the<br />

one umbrella . . . it’s things like<br />

Gilbert Enoka taught us when<br />

we were playing, which is your<br />

mindset, and so that’s what I did<br />

and I learnt on the way.”<br />

Outside of work, Cribb is<br />

actively involved with his<br />

children’s sporting activities.<br />

His 15-year-old son Nico is a<br />

promising outside back and<br />

100m sprinter.<br />

Meanwhile, his 17-year-old<br />

daughter, Helena, is playing<br />

representative netball.

300th game<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

MARIST Albion stalwart<br />

Rowan O’Gorman will<br />

become just the second<br />

player in the club’s<br />

history to bring up 300<br />

games when they host<br />

New Brighton at Edgar<br />

MacIntosh on Saturday.<br />

Only former Canterbury<br />

prop Tala Kele (330) has<br />

played more premier<br />

games for Marist.<br />

O’Gorman remembers<br />

playing in Kele’s 300th<br />

game, which was also<br />

against New Brighton.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> rum was out and<br />

the boys were in fine form<br />

that night. I’d imagine<br />

we’ll rip into it again this<br />

Saturday, there will be a<br />

few friends and family<br />

come down,” he said.<br />

O’Gorman, 37, played<br />

his first premier match<br />

for Marist in 2000 against<br />

Shirley.<br />

After playing for the<br />

division two side earlier<br />

in the day, he travelled to<br />

Burwood Park to run on<br />

at loose forward for the<br />

final 35min.<br />

“I was playing alongside<br />

Johnny Leo’o which<br />

was pretty awesome. I<br />

remember him making a<br />

good run after a lineout<br />

and getting an off-load to<br />

me,” said O’Gorman.<br />

“At that stage, I was<br />

trying to make it and<br />

seeing whether I could<br />

get up and play pro rugby.<br />

Obviously that wasn’t to<br />

be and I’ve just kept on<br />

playing footy and enjoyed<br />

it.”<br />

O’Gorman could have<br />

easily played 400 games<br />

for Marist by now had<br />

it not been for two years<br />

spent in England, a season<br />

with Sumner and another<br />

in Nelson. Between 2009<br />

and 2017, he also racked<br />

up 51 appearances and<br />

scored 26 tries for West<br />

Coast. O’Gorman also<br />

played for Nelson Bays in<br />

2003.<br />

His favourite memory<br />

for Marist came in 2003<br />

when they defeated High<br />

School Old Boys at Rugby<br />

Park to claim the metro<br />

title.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y were a stacked<br />

team. <strong>The</strong>re would have<br />

been at least 10 Crusaders<br />

playing in that game and<br />

four or five All Blacks<br />

. . . we had Ben Blair and<br />

Casey Laulala. I think<br />

they had Mehrts [Andrew<br />

Mehrtens], Dan Carter<br />

and I think both the<br />

Mauger brothers might<br />

have been involved as<br />

well,” said O’Gorman<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re was a massive<br />

crowd there and getting<br />

the bag-pipes back into the<br />

clubrooms afterwards was<br />

pretty amazing.”<br />

<strong>The</strong>se days Saturday’s<br />

are all about rugby for<br />

O’Gorman.<br />

His day starts at 9am<br />

watching his three-yearold<br />

son Noah play for<br />

Marist. He then coaches<br />

the Christ’s College<br />

under-15 team before<br />

lunchtime.<br />

It’s then into physio<br />

for a bit loosening up<br />

and strapping before the<br />

premier side kicks off at<br />

2.45pm.<br />

Up until late last year,<br />

O’Gorman was also the<br />

rugby development officer<br />

at Marist.<br />

He says he has no plans<br />

to retire from playing<br />

anytime soon, meaning<br />

Kele’s record of 330 could<br />

be under threat.<br />

“I still go by the same<br />

token. Have a few too<br />

many beers on Saturday<br />

night and then rock up<br />

Sunday and get on with<br />

it,” said O’Gorman.

Dumbing down the Crusaders’ horsemen<br />

Volleyballers reunite on big stage<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

THE ASIAN under-23<br />

volleyball championship in<br />

Vietnam next month will be a<br />

reunion for four Christchurch<br />

women and their coach.<br />

Petra Manderson, Tasmyn<br />

Fahey, Nicky Pio and Chloe<br />

Mikaera have been named in the<br />

New Zealand side to compete at<br />

the 15-team tournament which<br />

starts on July 13.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y will be joined on the trip<br />

by their former Burnside High<br />

School coach Sam Ryburn –<br />

who is also the under-23 coach.<br />

All four were part of at least<br />

one of the Burnside High<br />

teams which won back-to-back<br />

national secondary school titles<br />

in 2015 and 2016.<br />

Pio and Mikaera have been<br />

playing for the Shirley club,<br />

while Manderson and Fahey<br />

are currently on volleyball<br />

scholarships at division one<br />

THE STATE of the new<br />

politically correct Crusaders<br />

horsemen can only be compared<br />

to turning up to your favourite<br />

bar only to find out they’ve<br />

changed their taps and now only<br />

serve low alcohol beer.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Crusaders horsemen made<br />

their first appearance since the<br />

March 15 terrorist attacks during<br />

last week’s semi-final win over the<br />

colleges in the United States.<br />

“Going to division one is<br />

a major step up – everyone’s<br />

bigger and everyone’s faster. I<br />

was lucky enough to get to<br />

play all of last year and it’s<br />

tough, but very cool,” said<br />

Manderson.<br />

<strong>The</strong> New Zealand team will<br />

aim to secure a top three finish<br />

at the Asian championship and<br />

book a spot at the under-23<br />

world championships. For<br />

Highlanders. However, they now<br />

sport a much different look.<br />

Long gone are the six marauding<br />

horsemen turning Crusaders<br />

fans into a near feral state. We<br />

now have six lame dads sporting<br />

helmets and waving flags on<br />

ponies . . . I know we’re trying<br />

to turn Super Rugby stale with<br />

over saturation of teams and the<br />

introduction of a conference<br />

REUNION: Petra<br />

Manderson,<br />

Tasmyn Fahey,<br />

Nicky Pio and<br />

Chloe Mikaera<br />

will link up with<br />

their former<br />

school coach Sam<br />

Ryburn in the New<br />

Zealand under-23<br />

volleyball team.<br />

HUNTER<br />

Fahey, who has just transferred<br />

to North Carolina A&T State<br />

University, the decision to<br />

come home to prepare for the<br />

tournament was easy.<br />

“I kind of came back to play<br />

for him [Ryburn]. I was in<br />

the States, but I knew he was<br />

coaching so I wanted to try and<br />

make his team,” said Fahey.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y will face No 3 seed<br />

Orange ball debut<br />

• By Tatiana Gibbs<br />

ORANGE CRICKET balls will<br />

be used instead of the traditional<br />

red or balls in some afternoon<br />

club cricket matches this season.<br />

Christchurch metro<br />

cricket says the new<br />

balls will initially<br />

be introduced into<br />

selected social<br />

grades.<br />

<strong>The</strong> orange<br />

Kookaburra<br />

Crown twopiece<br />

ball was<br />

selected during<br />

a series of trials<br />

last season, which<br />

compared white, pink<br />

and orange balls. After<br />

being tested for visibility and<br />

performance on grass and<br />

artificial pitches, the orange ball<br />

performed well.<br />

Much like Super Rugby itself<br />

we should have let the horsemen<br />

go out on a high and killed<br />

them off completely rather than<br />

dumbing them down.<br />

cricket general manager Mike<br />

Harvey: “With a number of<br />

teams wearing white clothing,<br />

this makes it more difficult to see<br />

white balls.”<br />

“Feedback suggests it is much<br />

easier to see for batsmen<br />

and fielders, which<br />

will make it safer for<br />

play,” he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> change<br />

will occur in 14<br />

grades across<br />

men’s, women’s<br />

and youth<br />

formats.<br />

<strong>The</strong> change will<br />

How you heat your home depends on a number of<br />

factors. Figuring out the best way to heat your home<br />

continues to be a matter for debate.<br />

Several things are undisputed. A warm, dry<br />

home is essential for comfort and good health, good<br />

insulation dramatically increases the efficiency of<br />

any heating system and ventilation is an important<br />

consideration.<br />

Most homes are heated by electricity, gas, or wood.<br />

In New Zealand, heating accounts for approximately<br />

30 percent of a home’s annual energy consumption.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are many things you can do to reduce<br />

consumption and cost.<br />

<strong>The</strong> World Health Organisation recommends a<br />

temperature of 18 deg C for indoor living areas, and<br />

slightly less for bedrooms. It recommends slightly<br />

higher temperatures for vulnerable people – the<br />

elderly and small children. Studies have shown that<br />

indoor temperatures below 12 degrees can disrupt<br />

sleep.<br />

Among all these considerations, how you heat<br />

your home is a matter of personal choice, with many<br />

options available.<br />

Heat pumps are generally the most common and<br />

cost-effective form of home heating in New Zealand.<br />

Used properly, they heat quickly and are convenient.<br />

However, you need to have the right sized unit for<br />

the area and they don’t work when electricity is not<br />

available. <strong>The</strong>y tend to be room-specific but ducted<br />

heat pumps are becoming more popular and are<br />

cost-effective, especially in new builds, but can also<br />

be installed into established homes.<br />

Modern wood burners may be the closest you<br />

can get to an open-fire feel, but are much more<br />

efficient. Wood is generally a renewable fuel, and if<br />

you have a cheap or free supply, a wood burner may<br />

be the least expensive heating option. <strong>The</strong>y heat<br />

large areas and are not dependent on electricity but<br />

there is the chopping and stacking to be done, flues<br />

need to be cleaned regularly and older models can<br />

contribute to air pollution and may violate strict air<br />

quality regulations – www.mfe.govt.nz has detailed<br />

information regarding this.<br />

Home heating –<br />

electricity, gas or wood?<br />

Pellet fires are typically more efficient than wood<br />

burners but can have a smaller output. <strong>The</strong>y require<br />

electricity but some have a battery backup and they<br />

are thermostatically controlled with timers. <strong>The</strong>se<br />

must comply with regulations which are also detailed<br />

on the Ministry for the Environment website.<br />

Gas heating is common and convenient. Central<br />

heating systems can be zone controlled and provide<br />

warm air circulation. Flued gas heaters are best, as<br />

unflued and portable gas heaters produce lots of<br />

moisture and emit pollutants that can be unsafe.<br />

Flued gas heating systems can be installed in most<br />

homes. <strong>The</strong>y are fast heating and are relatively<br />

inexpensive to run. However gas is not a renewable<br />

resource and prices can vary widely.<br />

<strong>The</strong> greatest source of energy is actually free.<br />

Harnessing the sun can dramatically reduce heating<br />

costs and is the most environmentally friendly way to<br />

heat your home. Passive heating combines insulation<br />

with good design, accomplished more effectively<br />

in new builds but also able to be incorporated into<br />

existing homes.<br />

Getting the sun’s warmth into your home is a<br />

function of the design; keeping it in is a function<br />

of the insulation. <strong>The</strong>re is a wealth of information<br />

online as passive heating becomes normative in the<br />

design and building industry.<br />

Websites such as energywise.govt.nz and<br />

smarterhomes.org.nz have comprehensive<br />

information on and tips for, heating your home in<br />

the colder months.<br />

rare step of starting a petition<br />

to figh the city council over<br />

funding.<br />

Signatures are being co lected<br />

in a bid to get funding for a community<br />

facility in Shirley.<br />

It comes after the city council<br />

removed funding for the centre<br />

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the<br />

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This<br />

was the site of the former community<br />

centre, which was badly<br />

damaged in the February 2,<br />

<strong>The</strong> removal o funding<br />

prompted community board<br />

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten<br />

to stand down, citing it as her “die<br />

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave<br />

Rock Apartments ar expecting the<br />

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off<br />

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.<br />

Body corporate chairman Mike<br />

White said the group had gone<br />

into mediation with IAG and EQC<br />

on February 20, and signed off<br />

on a deal with IAG on February<br />

2 – coincidenta ly seven years<br />

to the day after the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake. However, they<br />

are waiting for EQC to sign the<br />

agr ement.<br />

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted<br />

the agr ement, there’ l be no<br />

problem with them doing that.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> apartment suffered damage<br />

in the February and <strong>June</strong>, 20 1,<br />

earthquakes and were demolished in<br />

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the<br />

difference betw en indemnity value,<br />

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,<br />

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body<br />

corporate.<br />

<strong>The</strong> mediation agr ement<br />

prevented Mr White from disclosing<br />

the se tlement amount, but he said it<br />

involved the two parties paying “a bit<br />

more money than they’d wanted to<br />

earlier.”<br />

Gaynor stanley<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are few thing sadder than drab white walls, I reckon, and<br />

yet New Zealanders have long surrounded ourselves with them. So<br />

when a painter started splashing some plucky pigment around <strong>Star</strong><br />

Media’s open plan office, I paid close attention to reactions. As a<br />

cosy mustard yellow spread over the entire far wall, the brightening<br />

of mood was palpable. People commented on how happy the colour<br />

made them feel, how much warmer the atmosphere was, how the<br />

sunny tone somehow lightened the load of constant deadlines.<br />

It was grea to see more confidence using colour, pattern and<br />

texture in the newly completed private homes we feature in this<br />

magazine too. Where not so long ago we might have felt neutral<br />

shades of brown or grey were somewhat audacious, today’s newly<br />

built homes pop with vibrant blues ( Jay and Rebekah’s place, page<br />

6) and copper hues (Ryan and Jen’s, page 30). Matt and Celia (page<br />

18) champion a monochromati colour scheme inside and out,<br />

while Sridhar and Susanna (page 63) chose dramatic black iron<br />

contrasting with smooth golden cedar to colour their new world.<br />

It was also eviden that more homeowners and building industry<br />

professionals are getting behind the movement to build better<br />

homes for the Christchurch climate. Warmer, healthier and cheaper<br />

to run is the brie from owner seeking builders with the know-how<br />

to construct their home from smarter building materials and designs<br />

that keep the cold out and the dust and electricity bi ls down.<br />

I really hope this magazine, and its associated Home & Living<br />

Show ( <strong>June</strong> 28-30), leave you brimming with the knowledge and<br />

inspiration to smarten up your home too.<br />
