Councillors

to vote

on their

pay after

October’s

elections

• By Louis Day

CITY COUNCILLORS will

vote on the size of their own

pay packets after October’s local

body elections.

Councillors will receive a

minimum base salary of $97,280

– $5120 less than what they are

currently paid.

But the mayor will get an

increase, receiving $195,000 –

a $1901 rise from the current

$193,099 the role pays.

However, this could all

change when the new city

council decides on the

allocation of a $1,843,200

governance pool.

This comes after a new

approach from the

Remuneration Authority,

which is responsible for paying

elected members of councils.

Funds from the pool could be

used to increase the base salary

of city councillors and additional

pay could be allocated towards

roles with extra responsibilities,

such as the mayor, deputy

mayor, chairs and deputy chairs

of committees.

Elected members will

vote on the allocation of funds

and make a recommendation

to the Remuneration Authority,

which will have the final say on

their salaries.

Inquiry ordered

into juror

news online at www.star.kiwi

Councillors to vote on own pay

at rape trial

•From page 1

• By Anna Leask

THE SUPREME Court has ordered

an inquiry into a jury foreperson

after claims made that he went

to school with the brother of a

convicted rapist whose trial he sat on.

It has been further claimed that

the foreperson bullied the rapist’s

brother at school – and was “biased”

and used his position to “influence”

other jurors on the case.

Brooke Rolleston and Brandon

Roche, both 20, were convicted in

the district court last year after a

jury found them guilty of the January

2016 rape and sexual violation

by unlawful sexual connection of

the teenage girl, which took place

near Christchurch.

Judge Alistair Garland sentenced

Rolleston to 11 years and two

months’ imprisonment and Roche

to 10 years and nine months’ imprisonment.

The pair appealed their convictions

after claiming they did not receive

a fair trial because of apparent

juror bias. They also alleged their

sentences were manifestly excessive.

The Court of Appeal rejected their

bid. The pair then took their case to

the Supreme Court, which yesterday

released its decision.

It has made an order “directing

an inquiry to be undertaken by an

independent practitioner of the jury

foreperson”.

Elected members will vote

on the allocation of funds and

make a recommendation to the

Remuneration Authority which

it will have the final say on.

City council secretary Jo Daly

said the entire pool had to be

used on council related remuneration.

Funds from the governance

pool can also be put towards the

remuneration of community

board members.

In spite of receiving a pay rise

of $194, the Banks Peninsula

Community Board is still paid

less than half of what inner city

board members are.

As it stands, Banks Peninsula

Community Board members

are set to receive $9864 and the

chairperson $19,729 after the

elections.

Whereas members of the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board will receive

$24,580 and their chair $49,160.

They say what they are paid

fails to account for the time and

travel that the role requires.

The current remuneration

model is set by population, so

community boards with bigger

populations get better remuneration.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board member Jed O’Donoghue

thought they were paid a pittance

for the work they were

required to do.

He said the low level of remuneration

contributed to his decision

to not stand for re-election.

Half of the board have said

they may not seek reelection

because of what they are paid.

“I think to attract more candidates

and make the democratic

process better you would need

better remuneration,” he said.

Deputy Mayor and Banks

Peninsula councillor Andrew

Turner said he would like to see

some of the governance pool

used to increase the funding of

the Banks Peninsula Community

Board.

The work of a community

board member is not solely

driven by the population that it

represents. A lot of the work of

a community board is driven

by the environment and on the

James Gough

Andrew Turner

Banks Peninsula we have a lot of

environmental issues,” he said.

City councillor James Gough

agreed there needed to be more

consistency in the remuneration

of community board members.

However, he thought it was

also important city councillors

were also paid their fair share.

“You would be mad to not

appreciate that remuneration is

going to factor in the attraction

of quality candidates,” he said.

Glenn’s about to get a rocket

• By Matt Slaughter

A WAR of words has erupted

between a well-known

businessman trying to oust a

long-term city councillor in

October’s local body elections.

And the battleground involves

where the businessman lives –

and an unrelated pile of shingle.

Maugers Contracting Ltd

boss Phil Mauger is standing

in the Burwood Ward against

three-term city councillor Glenn

Livingstone.

Mr Mauger lives in Avonhead,

but grew up in the eastern

suburbs.

Last month, The Star’s

community newspaper in

the eastern suburbs, Pegasus

Post, reported on the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board’s

bid to try and have a pile of

shingle removed from a car park,

alongside the Avon River, near

the intersection of New Brighton

Rd and Wainoni Rd.

The article prompted Mr

Mauger to get his staff and a

digger to clean most of it up.

He posted a photo of the clean

up on his election Facebook

page, which Cr Livingstone said

was “electioneering.”

Mr Mauger, when interviewed

later by The Star, said it wasn’t.

But The Star then learned

the day after it was cleaned up

TUSSLE: Burwood Ward city council candidate Phil Mauger (left) was accused of

“electioneering” by Burwood Ward city councillor Glenn Livingstone after clearing shingle

from a car park on New Brighton Rd.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

a Maugers Contracting truck

appeared at the site with a

sign saying “Vote Mauger For

Burwood.”

Interviewed again by The Star

this week, Mr Mauger said a staff

member made the decision to

take the truck to the location.

“I just said to my guy on the

truck, ‘you drive where ever you

like’,” he said.

When asked what Cr

Livingstone would think of

this, Mr Mauger told The Star

he was sick of criticism (from

Cr Livingstone) about the way

he was running his election

campaign, and the fact he lived

outside of the Burwood Ward.

Cr Livingstone previously

questioned the impact Mr

Mauger could have living

outside of Burwood if he was

elected. Mr Mauger said this

would not affect the job he would

do.

“Glenn’s about to get a rocket

right up his a*** very soon in the

next couple of days, because I am

sick and tired of hearing about

the fact that I don’t live in the

ward,” said Mr Mauger.

Rather than criticising him,

Cr Livingstone should “do

door-knocking and just do

commonsense electioneering,”

he said.

Cr Livingstone responded to

those comments by saying doorknocking

had played a much

bigger role in his campaign than

criticising Mr Mauger had.

“Maybe he’s just been caught

up in a moment of passion,

which is quite understandable

because campaigns can

be stressful at times,” Cr

Livingstone said of Mr Mauger’s

comments.

“It’s not the approach I’d

take myself. I think there is

a propensity in campaigns

for candidates to try different

things to attract votes and I

really have to leave this one up

to the community to judge for

themselves.”

Rewards to solve crimes: Do

Last month, police

offered $100,000 for

information leading

to a conviction in

the unsolved Angela

Blackmoore murder

case. So how do

police rewards come

about and are they

ever claimed? Sophie

Cornish reports

MORE THAN a month after

revealing the $100,000 reward,

police are still searching for Miss

Blackmoore’s killer.

The 21-year-old was 10-weeks

pregnant when she was stabbed

39 times in her home in

Vancouver Cres, Wainoni, in

August 1995.

Her two-year-old son was

sleeping under the same roof

at the time of her death – an

investigation that has since been

dubbed Operation Vancouver.

Head of the investigation,

Detective Sergeant Todd

Hamilton said there has been

no update to the case since

announcing the reward on May

18.

More than 40 calls were

received on an 0800 information

line by the end of May.

The reward will remain in

effect until October 16.

The homicide case, along with

many others around the country,

remains unsolved and no one has

ever been held to account for the

young mother’s death.

Offering rewards for

information which leads to an

arrest is not uncommon in New

Zealand. But rarely are they ever

claimed.

Detective Sergeant Ross

Tarawhiti has worked on

two high-profile cases which

have offered rewards – the

disappearance of Tuitania (Tui)

Barclay in 2002 and Yoon Sook

Chun in 2009 – neither of which

were claimed.

He believes rewards are mainly

offered as a last resort tactic.

“For a lot of cases, it’s gone a

long way down the track and it’s

UNSOLVED: Detective Sergeant Ross Tarawhiti has worked on two high-profile

investigations which have offered rewards but remained unsolved. These were the

disappearance of Tui Barclay in 2002 and Yoon Sook Chun in 2009.

Mallory Manning Angela Blackmoore Yoon Sook Chun

just given to try and generate

some public interest to try and

hopefully find someone who

maybe is looking for a bit of

money and could be motivated

by that. It’s a last resort most

of the time . . . police national

headquarters have to be satisfied

that every other avenue has been

exhausted,” he said.

Canterbury University

professor and crime expert Greg

Newbold said the “last ditch

effort” by police is often to entice

people whose allegiances and

loyalties may have changed.

“When the crime is fresh in

people’s minds and they know

the perpetrator or something

about it, they may decline to

speak, out of loyalty. It might be

their boyfriend, husband, best

friend, someone close to them

who knows about it.

Ten years down the track,

those people might have fallen

out, they might not know each

other anymore and the

fact that there is a lot of

money being offered,

that might sway them

to think: ‘Oh well, he

deserves it and I need the

dough’.

The perpetrator may

be old, they might be

infirm, the person might

be unable to even go to

trial,” said Professor Newbold.

Detective Inspector Corrie

Parnell spoke about this during

the announcement of the reward

Greg Newbold

for Operation Vancouver.

“With the passing of time

allegiances may have changed and

we’re appealing to anyone with

information that might help, no

matter how small or seemingly

insignificant, to contact

us,” he said.

Professor Newbold

doesn’t believe guilt or

conscience would play a

role in someone coming

forward with information

many years later.

“If guilt and

conscience was a factor

they would have come

forward a long time ago. What’s

going to tip the balance will be

the money . . . it’s easy to have

a conscience when you have

$100k going into your pocket.”

Protection or immunity may

be offered in return for valuable

information.

“Immunity against prosecution

will be considered for any

accomplice to the murder,” was

stated during the reveal of the

Operation Vancouver reward.

However, Professor Newbold

said it would be highly unlikely

that a “clean skin” – someone

without a criminal record –

would be targeted for giving

evidence

The chances of retaliation are

almost zero . . . but, if they are in

the criminal world there would

be, because they have broken the

code.”

So what’s been offered and

what’s been claimed?

Rewards will often expire

without being claimed.

The conditions of each reward

vary, but Detective Sergeant

Tarawhiti said rewards are

mainly given out when police are

given information that would be

sufficient to enable a prosecution.

In the case of Mrs Chun and

Ms Barclay, neither rewards were

given out due to “insufficient

information,” he said.

“We did get some information

but a lot of it was speculation and

things like that, it wasn’t anything

of substance. Had it of been, we

would have obviously paid out. It

never progressed further.”

In 2008, the New Zealand

Herald reported that in the

five years prior, New Zealand

police had offered $800,000 in

reward money – but not paid out

a cent.

In 2014, the cold case of the

disappearance of Tui Barclay was

re-opened, with police suspecting

foul play and offering a $50,000

reward for information.

It expired without being

claimed in January 2015.

There have been no confirmed

sightings of the Dunedin motherof-three

since September 17,

2002.

In 2003, police said strong

leads suggested Ms Barclay went

to Christchurch and linked with

a local gang.

Also at that time, they said

they had to consider there was a

reasonable possibility she could

be dead.

Forensic samples taken from a

Christchurch gang headquarters

led nowhere. The case remains

unsolved.

Later in 2015, police offered a

$30,000 reward for information

on the disappearance of Korean

mother-of-two Yoon Sook Chun,

in 2009.

The reward was offered in July

and on October 1, it expired

without being claimed.

Mrs Chun was last seen walking

out of her Aidanfield home

in May 2009.

Her family said she sent an

email saying she was going to

Auckland for a break and that she

would return, but she never did.

Her bank accounts remain

untouched and there is no trace

of her visiting Auckland. Neither

of her New Zealand or South Korean

passports have been used.

The police search for Mrs

Chun was made difficult by her

family not reporting her as missing

until almost seven months

after she disappeared.

OTHER REWARDS

OFFERED

•In 2009, police offered

a $75,000 reward for

information leading

to the prosecution of

the historic murder

of 29-year-old Kayo

Matsuzawa in 1998.

Previously, in 1998,

police offered a $50,000

reward but were not able

to advance the case, in

spite of gathering a large

amount of evidence.

The Japanese woman

had come to New

Zealand to study English

in Christchurch and to

work and travel.

On September

11, 1998, she flew to

Auckland, checked into

a backpackers and never

returned.

There was no evidence to

suggest Mrs Chun travelled to

Auckland.

In December 2008, Mallory

Manning, a prostitute, was picked

up and taken to an Avonside

property before being brutally

killed by stabbing, strangling and

assault with a metal pole. Her

body was found dumped in the

Avon River.

On February 20, 2009, police

offered a $50,000 reward for

Eleven days later her

naked and decomposing

body was found in a

•In December 2008, 100

military medals, including

nine Victoria Crosses,

valued at $5 million were

stolen from the Waiouru

Army Museum.

After announcing a

$300,000 reward in

February 2009, police

recovered all 12 sets of

medals.

More drink

spiking

allegations

• By Sophie Cornish

TWO WOMEN claim they had

their drinks spiked at a central

city bar over the weekend.

The bar’s general manager

told The Star yesterday it is

investigating the claims. The

victims have not yet reported it

to police.

CCTV footage is being

searched to find evidence of the

claims made by the women who

were at the bar on Saturday night.

“We are trolling through

our footage at the moment . . .

obviously we are quite concerned

about this,” said the bar’s general

manager.

The manager confirmed

nothing of a sexual nature has

been reported to the bar as a

result of the alleged spiking.

It is the second bar in the city

to face drink spiking allegations

in the past 12 months.

More than 20 complaints

were made to police last year by

women claiming their drinks

were spiked at Mama Hooch bar

on Colombo St.

Some allege they were sexually

assaulted following the drink

spiking incidents.

Four men, aged 25, 33, 34 and

36, were arrested in November.

All have pleaded not guilty

to charges including sexual

violation and stupefying. They

elected trial by jury. Their names

have been suppressed.

Gough yet

• By Louis Day

CITY COUNCILLOR James

Gough has not ruled out running

for mayor in the October 12 local

body elections.

Cr Gough said he was still considering

his options.

“I’m in no immediate hurry to

make an immediate decision, there

are still a few more people I would

like to talk to so I have not ruled it

out,” he said.

This comes after four-time

mayoral candidate Blair Anderson

announced he would be running for

mayor.

The former deputy leader of the

Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party

thought he would make a “bloody

good mayor.”

“I’m a communitarian with

a grounding in science and I’m

diversely educated. I would be an

excellent advocate for this city,” he

said.

The professional dog trainer and

behaviourist said he wanted to help

Christchurch transition into a “21stcentury

smart city with no limits.”

Mr Anderson was wary that he

faced very strong competition from

current Mayor Lianne Dalziel.

joined the race to become city

councillor for the Central Ward.

Clive Antony will face Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Board deputy chairman

Jake McLellan and incumbent

Mr Antony has lived in the

“I’m just pumped for the city

have more people coming in, if I

can be part of that conversation

and bring some ideas forward I

would be stoked,” he said.

Mr Antony announced that

he would be running for the

BADJELLY THE WITCH

By Spike Milligan & adapted by Alannah O’Sullivan

Bad Jelly, the baddest witch of in all the world

turns 46 this year but has absolutely no intention

of hanging up her broomstick anytime soon.

Courtesy of much loved comedian Spike

Milligan’s irreverent children’s story, the original

stage adaption was lovingly crafted by New

Zealand’s very own Alannah O’Sullivan and

that script now holds the title of the country’s

most licensed play, having been performed all

over New Zealand. Indeed, entire generations

of Kiwis, have grown up listening to the story

still regular played on the radio and seeing it

performed live.

Badjelly the Witch encapsulates the humour

Spike Milligan became known for: far-fetched

stories, bizarre characters, surreal comedy and

wordplays as well as silly sound effects.

At its heart, it is a fairy tale in the mode of the

classics but pulled into contemporary times,

where children remain intrigued by witches &

wizards, and who want to laugh at giants with

bare bottoms and where the good guys always

triumph.

The story follows Rose and Tim, who go into

a deep dark forest to look for their lost cow

Lucy, and meet a whole range of extremely

wonderful if not slightly weird array of helpful

characters, such as Binklebonk, the very

cute Dinglemouse, Mudwiggle and of course

Appletree, The Policeman!, to rescue their

beloved Lucy from the clutches of Badjelly the

Witch before she is eaten!

This production will also include the catchy

music and songs by Geoff Davidson.

John Armstrong, our Director, has bought

together a talented cast ensemble, and looks

forward to bring this iconic script to life, as part

of the Christchurch City Council annual KidsFest

July holiday programme

For the first time, Riccarton Players will also

be offering two ‘Relaxed Performances’ on

Wednesday 10th and 17th July at 7pm.

A relaxed performance is a special

performance of a show designed to

welcome those who

will benefit from a more

relaxed performance environment, including

people with an Autism Spectrum Condition,

sensory and communication disorders or a

learning difficulty.

This means that there will be a relaxed

attitude to noise and movement during the

performance, and some changes will be made

to limit the light and sound effects.

The theatre will have limited seating capacity

so patrons will be able to move around more

easily and we will be providing two chill-out

areas outside the theatre with activities that can

be used at anytime during the performance. A

resource / social story pack will be emailed to

those booking for these specific shows prior to

attending. All ages welcome.

Don’t delay, bookings are now open for all

shows and we look forward to bringing you

When a noise complaint is

made, a noise control officer will

the officer will ask for it to be

The officer can also issue an

If the noise is not reduced, or

Flood risk in

Heathcote

alleviated

THE RISK of properties

in Heathcote flooding has

decreased due to work

undertaken in Wigram.

The city council has

undertaken flood protection

work to increase the capacity of

the Wigram East storage basin,

which sits in the Canterbury

Agricultural Park.

Land drainage manager

Keith Davison said the work

means there will be less risk

of properties along the upper

reaches of the Heathcote

flooding.

“We have lowered a large

area of the park for flood storage

and created four hectares of

wetland.

“In a one-in-100-year storm

event the basin can now store

around 590 million litres

of water – the equivalent of

more than 236 Olympic-sized

swimming pools,” Mr Davison

said.

The city council fast-tracked

the $7.25 million project to

extend the Wigram East storage

basin to provide critical flood

mitigation, and scheduled it

at the same time as work on

neighbouring Ngā Puna Wai

Sports Hub.

THE SEARCH is on to find a

home for thousands of crafted

hearts sent to the city following

the March 15 mosque attacks.

More than 5000 hearts, along

with messages of support,

flooded in from around the

world after Barkers Wool And

Haberdashery manager Jacquie

Jewell established the initiative

Muslim Hearts of Christchurch.

The goal was to collect as many

crafted hearts as possible, made

from knitted, croquet, origami,

mosaic and vintage materials,

to gift to those affected by the

attacks.

Mrs Jewell has now delivered

3000 hearts, along with copies

of messages, to the Al Noor

Mosque, Linwood Islamic

Centre, police and St John. But

she has about 2000 left which she

is hoping to publicly display.

Initially, Mrs Jewell asked for

permission from the city council

to hang the remaining hearts on

a designated tree in the Botanic

Gardens.

But city council Botanic

Gardens and garden parks

director Wolfgang Bopp said it

wanted to maintain one location

(at the Rolleston Ave tribute wall)

about the second option.

They wouldn’t last as long if

they were outside . . . I am excited

to think they are going to be

She said the display will give

the hearts longevity for all the

city to see.

Mrs Jewell said presenting

the crafted hearts with her two

daughters to the two mosques

was a “moving experience”.

“To walk into them (the

mosques), to know what

happened there, I actually felt

numb . . . it was something I will

never forget,” she said.

is hitting the mark.

“It’s a very satisfying job to bring

together the information readers

and an industry win is certainly

the cherry on top of another great

Concerns over plan

to protect dolphins

• By Jess Gibson

A MARINE animal expert

and the Black Cat Cruises

boss are concerned a

proposal to protect hector’s

dolphins across New

Zealand leaves the Akaroa

population at risk.

The Government’s 40-

page threat management

plan includes protection

measures for the dolphins,

which are

classified as

nationally

vulnerable

with an

estimated

population

of 15,700.

Liz Slooten

Proposed

commercial

and recreational set netting

and trawling restrictions

run north from Banks

Peninsula to Kaikoura,

south to Timaru, and offshore

up to 20 nautical

miles. But the additional

protection does not include

an area of sea around the

south-eastern side of Banks

Peninsula. Instead, the only

option is to maintain the

current restriction of four

nautical miles offshore in

that stretch.

Otago University zoology

professor Liz Slooten said

she has been scratching her

head over the gap in the

proposal.

Said Prof Slooten: “What

they seem to have done is

gone to the areas where the

most dolphins are being

caught right now and

chosen to protect them and

not the areas where not

many dolphins are being

caught.

The problem with that is,

if you close the areas to the

north and restrict fishing to

the south, people are going

to shift into that gap.”

Black Cat Cruises chief

executive Paul Milligan

said he is disappointed the

document has “left out an

area where people know

there are dolphins.”

A Fisheries New Zealand

spokesperson said there is

unlikely to be additional

displaced recreational set

netting given the existing

closures in place.

However, they did

not comment on

the commercial

activities.

The proposals are

looking to extend

the current closures

further offshore

in areas within

Pegasus Bay and the

Canterbury Bight. They are

based on the best scientific

evidence available of the

risks to hector’s and maui

dolphins, which draws on a

range of new information,”

the spokesperson said.

and abundance, revised

NEWS 15 ADVERTORIAL

Conservation’s necropsy

programme

Last month, Black Cat

Cruises commissioned a

study by Market Economics

to determine the value

of hector’s dolphins. It

found dolphin-related

eco-tourism brings

almost $25 million

into the New Zealand

economy each year,

with an additional

$3 million to $6

Paul also found hector’s

Milligan dolphins sustain up

national economy.

Hector’s dolphin numbers

are estimated to have

decreased by about 74 per

The National Institute of

Catholic Cathedral College To live by faith

Catholic Cathedral College is a special character co-education

school situated in the central city. We are a family focused,

culturally diverse school and we follow the charisms of both

Marcellin Champagnat and the Mission Sisters through our motto

‘To live by faith’. We recognise the unique position of Māori as

Tangata Whenua and

the principles of the

Treaty of Waitangi are

woven throughout

our school life.

We are the only

Catholic Co-ed school

in Christchurch and

people love the family

atmosphere and the

convenience of being

able to send all their

children to one school.

Visitors often comment on the great relationship our students have

with our Staff.

There are many opportunities for your child to get involved in

school life here. We have strong Cultural Groups such as Kapa haka,

Pasifika and Filipino, a wide range of sports on offer and a thriving

Music and Drama Department. Watch out for our School Production

of ‘High School Musical’ coming up later this year. If Debating

is more your thing, there is the annual Bishop Lyons Debating

competition, the Junior and Senior Secondary School Debating

competitions and other opportunities such as Youth UN and the

Ethics Olympiad.

We have a great academic track record, with our NCEA results

sitting in the 90s, far exceeding the National average. Our fees are also

extremely reasonable. We are in fact, the best-kept secret in town. We

are not zoned and accept students from Years 7 – 13. Enrolments are

currently open.

Special Character

The College has many Special Character groups that are active within

the school and community providing a human face to our motto ‘To

Live By Faith’. These groups, led by our Special Character Leaders, help

prepare liturgies, Special Character events and our weekly college Mass.

A highlight this term was a visit by Bishop Paul Martin, who joined our

School Chaplain, Father Phil Bennenbroek to concelebrate the weekly

Mass on the Feast Day of one of our Founders, Marcellin Champagnat.

Bishop Lyons Debating Competition

Catholic Cathedral College

have won the highly coveted

Bishop Lyons’ Shield for 2019.

The Catholic Cathedral

College team came first

overall, with a first place in

Debating and Senior Speech,

second in Junior Speech and

third in Impromptu speech,

Scripture Reading in Te Reo

and in Religious Questions.

The Bishop Lyons’ Shield is a much anticipated event, celebrating the public

speaking and debating skills that are traditionally strong in Catholic schools.

Every year, talented students from the seven Catholic secondary schools

in the Diocese of Christchurch compete for the Shield. Catholic Cathedral

College, Roncalli College (Timaru), John Paul II High School (Greymouth)

St Bede’s College, Villa Maria College, St Thomas of Canterbury College

and Marian College.

The competition was established by Bishop Lyons in 1947, when he was

Catholic Bishop of Christchurch. This year the competition was hosted by

Catholic Cathedral College. Hospitality was extended to all visitors over

the weekend with the highlight being the dinner Saturday night, a hungi,

alongside other multi-cultural dishes reflecting the ethnic diversity of the

College community. This was combined with entertainment provided by

the students of Catholic Cathedral and the other Colleges involved. Bishop

Paul presided at the Mass on Sunday for the students, families, teachers

and supporters from the seven Colleges.

Although the competitions were an important part of the weekend,

this was also an opportunity for students from the seven schools to

meet together, network and socialise. Many commented on the great

atmosphere throughout the competition and Catholic Cathedral College

were popular and deserving winners.

Ethics Olympiad

The Ethics Olympiad is an Australian competition that started in New

Zealand this year. This was a chance for our students to meet with other

students from 14 secondary schools throughout Christchurch and Otago.

They entered into discussions around tough ethical questions that face

people today. Our team of Nadia Luketina, Jane Barlin, Lucy Sparks,

Thomas Munro and Mia Bringans took on the competition and proved

that they had clear and strong ethical thinking. After three rounds of

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

students discussed whether it was ethical to ban killer drones in combat.

The Christ’s College team discussed whether it was ethical to bring some

species back from the dead. The final was judged by Associate Professor

of Education from Canterbury University, Misty Sato, and Grant Tavinor,

Head of the Human Ethics Committee from Lincoln University.

Catholic Cathedral College won the final, receiving the Gold medal

with the Christ’s College teams receiving the silver and the bronze.

This makes our students the South Island inaugural Ethics Olympiad

Champions. Well done!

Our REMAR and Young Vinnies Group are also active in the

community, visiting the residents of Nazareth House on a regular basis,

helping out in the St Vincent de Paul shop and hosting morning teas for

members of Age Concern. The Young Vinnies also organised the very

successful ’40 Bags for Lent’ collection earlier this year, collecting warm

clothes, blankets and toys for those in need.

During the recent ‘Catholic Schools Day’ our senior students came

together with students from Marian College to mark the occasion with

‘Kai and Conversation’.

Sebastian Lipp

Year 12 student, Sebastian Lipp, has been selected to represent New

Zealand as part of the Junior Track Cycling Team at the Oceania Track

Cycling Championships in October. This is a fantastic achievement and

we wish him well.

Earlier this term Sebastian participated in the National Track Series in

Invercargill. The series included 3 days of racing, training workshops and

race feedback for all riders

from U/17, U19 and U23.

He competed in a number

of Sprint events including

the Flying 200m, Individual

Sprints, 550m Derbies and

Kieren racing and at the end

of the weekend was the Men’s

Sprint Champion.

Sebastian was also invited

by Cycling New Zealand

to spend a week in Cambridge at Sprint School at the Avantidrome.

There, he spent time with the Elite NZ track cyclists and was coached

by the NZ Sprint Coach.

South Island Taekwondo Championship

Year 13 student,

Cesse Castro,

recently competed

in the South

Island Taekwondo

Championships

where she did

very well, winning

the Blackbelt

Poomsae Trophy

for the 4th time in

as many years.

She also won

Gold in the

following events;

Singles Blackbelt

Poomsae, Sparring

Blackbelt Seniors

division and

Sparring Junior

Blackbelt division.

SGCNZ University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival

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

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

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

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

The students had a busy four days of workshops and performances at the Michael Fowler Centre. They

also had the opportunity to explore parts of Wellington in their downtime. They performed their scene from

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

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

put hours and hours into rehearsing and refining their performance. We congratulate Year 13 student Lucy

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

Company, a number of whom will travel to the Globe in London.

We congratulate the following students on their Individual successes;

NZ Optimist Nationals

Another talented student is Year 9 student Charlotte Palmer, who in the

school holidays competed in the NZ Optimist Nationals. As a result of this

she has been selected to represent New Zealand in The Asians/Oceania

regatta in Oman later this year. There are currently 152 Optimist sailors

ranked in NZ with ages from 10yrs to 15 yrs. Charlotte is understandably

extremely excited to get this opportunity.

like the Lyttelton Museum

and rural Banks Peninsula.” A

total of 1282 artworks from 16

Christchurch secondary schools

were submitted for the exhibition.

Fifteen top artists

were selected to display

their work, which

included Ruby, who

is in her last year at St

the public to view

the works and bid

on them in a silent

Three of Ruby’s

artworks were sold for

a combined total of

$2075.

Ruby MCallum The Breadmaker

was sold for $1000, The Explorers

Using road

cones to make

city ‘beautiful’

• By Jess Gibson

A BUSINESS started by a group

of Cashmere High School

students aims to liven the streets

of Christchurch with artistic road

cones.

Christchurch Cones was

launched at the Young Enterprise

Scheme (YES) Market on Monday,

hosted by Ara Institute of

Canterbury.

Year 13 student Tamara Hill

said the group “wanted to make

something that could make the

city beautiful again.”

“We’re going to get people from

the community and our school

to design and paint the cones

themselves and then they’re going

to be put in people’s gardens and

around the city,” she said.

YES sees senior secondary

school-aged entrepreneurs set up

and run real businesses over the

course of a year.

Other ideas at the market included

a mental health cook book

and biodegradable alternatives to

Common themes among many

of the projects like tackling issues

of sustainability, mental health or

exploring social enterprise.

HAPPY MATARIKI everyone.

I hope you’re all using this

wintery time of year as a perfectly

appropriate Kiwi cultural excuse

to eat heaps with the family.

Obviously hangi or a generous

roast are the best bets. Vittoria

will be having her first full hangi

meal this Saturday.

Now that I’ve got you thinking

of delicious food and eating, let’s

take this lowbrow and talk about

bodily functions.

Just what you wanted right?

I’ve always counted myself lucky

to have avoided the real nastiness

of parenting babies and toddlers

so far. While my mates have had

all sorts of dramas, I’ve missed (or

dodged) the worst of it.

I still count myself as lucky in

that regard (thankfully), but I got

my first taste of an ‘oh-hell-no’

toiletry nightmare this week.

After coming home from an

activity on Monday a whiff of bad

cabbage cologne told me it was

change time. Luckily, it was all

contained and wasn’t so bad in

the big scheme of things.

I congratulated myself on another

job well done.

She’d wet her pants a little

through the nappy and the house

was warm so I left her just in her

top and nappy for a bit while I

had some lunch in the kitchen

(out of the wee seagull’s view).

The true horror began soon after.

Leaving the kitchen, I looked

into the hall and immediately

asked the question: “Is that a wee

jobbie?”

It was. Right there on the floor.

But not just there.

Suffice to say, if it gets on a

shoe that’s about 30cm off the

floor on a rack, you’ve got problems

mate. Lord have mercy.

Round two was too much for her

nappy to handle.

up) and got stuck in, battling

TIMBER

TURMOIL:

The ocean

view at the

hot salt water

pools being

built in New

Brighton will

be obscured

by timber

slats.

Concern over hot pools views

• By Louis Day

PEOPLE USING the hot water

pools in New Brighton will have

to peer through timber slats to

see the ocean.

The $11.2 million pool

is under construction and

expected to open early

next year.

Development

Christchurch Ltd chief

executive Rob Hall said

timber slats from 80cm

to 1.3m tall would be

installed on the beach

side of the pool to protect

users from easterly winds.

Mr Hall said people would still

be able to see the ocean through

the 5cm gaps between the timber

slats.

“A solid glass fence was

considered, however, we know

that sea spray quickly turns glass

opaque and unsightly, and a

Robbie

Baigent

solid glass fence would also cause

unpleasant downdrafts for pool

users,” he said.

New Brighton Project coordinator

Martha Baxendell is

concerned the slats will obscure

the view.

“I think the

biggest thing that

we wanted to

know was that we

were still in New

Brighton. I just

hope it is not this

big old fence that

we can hardly see

through, “ she

said.

New Brighton resident Robbie

Baigent said the community has

been sold one thing and given

another.

“All the early imagery showed

a fence, but with a series of glass

panels which I would have had no

problem with,” he said.

Martha

Baxendell

“It’s just a real shame, we have

got one of the most amazing

vistas across the city.”

New Brighton Business

and Landowners Association

chairwoman Rebecca Tavete is

confident the hot pools will

still be a success.

“I don’t think many people

will be going to the pool to

look at the ocean anyway.

If you look at Hanmer and

the hot pools there you are

either sitting around gazing

into your partner’s eyes or

you are sitting around with

some friends chatting away,”

she said.

Coastal Ward city councillor

David East labelled the fence a

“win-win” situation.

“From the point of view of

breaking wind, it makes sense.

I also think it is possible to have

a more than adequate view with

the slats,” he said.

Thieves target

garden again

• By Sophie Cornish

A GARDEN designed for

children with disabilities has

been hit by its fourth theft since

opening.

The SmileDial Different Type

of Perfect Sensory Garden

located at Rawhiti Domain had

several plants stolen again last

week.

The empty

spots where

two swan

plants and

one mediumsized

tree

once were

was noticed

Sam Hall

on June 19.

Smiledial

managing

director Sam Hall said it appeared

the thieves only took a

few smaller trees this time and

attempted to get more but may

have been disturbed.

“It’s a bit disappointing

considering it’s quite a special

place for us and for people with

disabilities and special needs.

It’s our home . . . it’s where everyone

goes to get away from the

mainstream playgrounds,” said

Mr Hall.

JULY 1 is the beginning of the

new financial year, which was the

subject of debate this week at city

council when we confirmed the

2019/2020 Annual Plan.

We dealt with a number of

issues while still keeping the rates

increase below the level we had

budgeted.

I reinforced our commitment

to providing safe drinking water

that is good to drink – and in

Christchurch City that means

without a chlorine residual in the

network.

I remain concerned about the

approach the Government may

take in this regard. We consider

mandatory chlorine treatment to

be an unnecessarily prescriptive

approach that is not supported

by evidence from drinking water

supplies across the world.

In August 2017, thieves used

shovels to uproot seven fruit

trees, several of which were

planted in a memory garden by

parents who had lost a child.

Several signs at the garden

You’ve heard the joke – ‘three

men walk into a bar . . .’ – that’s

actually how the Dry July

campaign started in Australia.

Three guys wanted to take a

break from drinking for a month

and asked family and friends to

Did you settle your earthquake claim with

Southern Response before 1 October 2014?

You may have been short

changed on your payout

Advertising FeAture

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

produced one version for you ¬– its customer – and one for itself. Their own version included all sorts

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

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

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

you may have missed out on money due to you.

JOINING A CLASS ACTION IS

NOT YOUR BEST OPTION

GCA Lawyers, bankrolled by an Australian

funder, is currently locking people into

a class action involving up to 3000 other

home owners (and we suggest you check

the fine print on that VERY carefully).

Unfortunately class actions typically take

years to settle – sometimes up to a decade.

That’s partly because there is no incentive

for the people running the claim to settle

early, in fact it’s the opposite because the

longer any class action takes the more

money the law firms on both sides make.

What’s more, because you’re just one

person out of thousands, GCA Lawyers

will make important decisions for you

– including when to settle and for how

much! You have no control over this.

If their claim is successful they’ll also help

themselves to anywhere from 17.5-27.5%

of YOUR SETTLEMENT. And that’s on top of

the legal fees they will charge you!

If GCA’s action is unsuccessful though,

that’s it. You will NEVER AGAIN be able

to take any legal action against Southern

Response on the same issues.

Work one-on-one with us

instead at Christchurch

Service Ltd. AND pay no

commission!*

Claims Resolution Service was established

to help people just like you, including

people who now wish to withdraw from

the GCA class action.

• Your case will be all about YOU AND

YOUR HOME – you won’t have to do

what’s best for 3000 other homeowners

all at the same time, and your case

won’t get bogged down for years due

to the details involved in other peoples’

claims.

• You’ll have total control and will be

making all the important decisions,

including when you want to agree to a

settlement.

• You can use your own lawyer or select

one we suggest for you.

• Your case, on its own, is likely to be

resolved much more quickly.

• Earthquake Services WON’T be helping

itself to a share of your settlement – you

only need to pay us for the legal fees

of your lawyer, and any costs we pay to

progress the case*. And you won’t need

to pay that till your case ends.

• We also WON’T require you to give us

the right to take a mortgage out on your

home to cover the law firm’s fees and

costs.

• *If you sign up with us before 23 July

2019 we WILL fund your claim FOR FREE.

• If you sign up after 23 July 2019, you will

only pay a fee of 10% plus GST.

If you’ve already joined a class action and

now want to join us, please contact us

immediately, we may get you out of the

immediately.

BETTER

HEALTH

FOR ALL

C ommunity inf luencer

Wholistic health therapies have been

Sandra Curle’s passion for the forty plus

years she has worked in the healthcare

industry. Facilitating therapies and

processes which help a person identify

their core health ailments in order to heal

and move toward optimum health, has

been her quest.

The Better Health Clinic offers the

following services: The Avatar System for

testing and recording of toxins, including

heavy metals, radiation, chemicals,

bacteria, mercury, etc.

And…

Better Health also offers CranioSacral

Therapy which is a light-touch approach

which can create dramatic improvements

by releasing tensions deep in the body

to relieve pain and improve whole-body

health and performance.

“I love what I do and the results my

patients have had.” Sandra shared.

WE ASKED SANDRA

THE FOLLOWING:

What is the benefit of an Avatar

reading?

In today’s environment, the human body

is laden with toxins from just about

everything. For instance, the air we

breathe, the foods we eat, the cosmetics

and hygiene products we use. Cleaning

supplies, automobile and yard products.

People often forget the body is like

a sponge and absorbs chemicals and

toxins and holds onto them within the

body systems. In time, when the body

is overloaded, illness takes over and the

immune system breaks down. This is

where the Avatar system comes into play.

Ridding the body of pollutants

After an Avatar reading, remedies are

determined in the form of drops, like

homeopathy, which are customised for

each client based upon their reading.

The drops act as a detoxification

process focused on supporting the body

with flushing out the toxins and are

customised remedies for each person,

based upon their reading results.

What ages are Avatar readings

safe?

All ages, all sexes and all animals, too.

Benefits

Natural, nontoxic with great results.

ELGAR Cello Concerto in E Minor

FARR Roar of a Thousand Tigers

(World Premiere)

Gareth Farr’s newly commissioned orchestral

work, Roar of a Thousand Tigers, takes

its name from Sherpa Tenzing Norgay’s

description to Sir Edmund Hillary of the

violent, high altitude icy winds that buffet

the uppermost slopes of Mount Everest. It is

a symphonic homage to possibly the most

famous New Zealander of all time - and the

summit that he and Tenzing first reached in

1953.

In celebration of the 100 years since the

birth of Sir Edmund, with the support of

Creative New Zealand, the symphony was

commissioned by the Hillary Centenary

Steering Committee.

Performing Elgar’s intensely emotional

concerto, Russian-born cellist Lev Sivkov

has won 1st prize in a number of prestigious

music competitions, including the 2015

Naumburg International Cello Competition.

He is currently Principal Cello with

Philharmonia Zurich and performs across

Europe as a soloist and chamber musician.

Douglas Lilburn’s Aotearoa Overture explores

the shimmer of light on the sea surrounding

the New Zealand coastline. Lilburn wished to

reflect a sense of freshness and exhilaration

in this, one of his earlier symphonic

compositions.

NEURONS THAT FIRE

TOGETHER, WIRE TOGETHER

Aristotle was right, we are what we repeatedly do,

but modern neuroscientists would add that we

are also what we repeatedly think.

Neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to make

new neural pathways based on the information it

receives, isn’t new (our brains have always been

plastic); what is new is our understanding of this

phenomenon.

This is probably best summarised by the adage,

‘Neurons that fire together wire together’.

In other words, if you think a thought or perform

an action often enough, the neurons that are

responsible for executing those thoughts and

actions will start to join together to form new

neural pathways to accommodate them.

For example, if you constantly think about a pain

you are experiencing, the brain will create neural

pathways to make accessing that pain easier.

However, as soon as you accept you have pain,

the brain will begin to re-route away from pain

and towards acceptance. And, if you can make

acceptance your default mode, the pain usually

becomes much easier to manage (simple but not

easy).

To some degree this is what the placebo effect is

all about i.e. you take a pill that you think will

relieve your pain, the brain starts to re-route to

accommodate that thought and, hey presto, the

pain abates.

There are lots of things you can do to promote

brain plasticity, but let’s focus on three:

1. Aerobic exercise that gets a sweat up creates

a protein called Brain Derived Neurotrophic

Factor (BDNF) and BDNF is considered to be

‘fertiliser for the brain’. So, while a stroll in the

park is beneficial on a number of levels, if you

really want to energise your brain, a fast walk

that elevates your heart rate is much better.

2. If you want your brain to learn new stuff,

focused repetition (practice) is essential. Practice

makes perfect, right? Nope, perfect practice

makes perfect. Watch the average golfer spraying

balls left, right and centre on the driving range

and ask yourself what kind of plasticity is likely

to occur.

3. The celebrated neuroscientist Michael

Merzenich, says older people are good at creating

negative neuroplasticity, aka ‘you can’t teach an

old dog new tricks’ syndrome. As it turns out,

not only can Rover learn new stuff, if he makes

learning new stuff a habit there’s a good chance

his brain will remain flexible into old age, which

has significant implications for those of you who

are concerned about dementia in its many guises.

To summarise: The discovery that our brains

are plastic is a potential game-changer, but only

if you feed your brain with helpful thoughts,

exercise with the objective of getting out of puff,

practice stuff you want to learn as perfectly as

possible and stay engaged in the game of life.

RESEARCH

SHOWS

IMPORTANCE

OF EXERCISE

IN CANCER

CARE

Exercise New Zealand chief executive

Richard Beddie today backed United

Kingdom research which is showing the

benefits of exercise for people who have

had cancer.

Research at Northumbria University,

Newcastle, has been investigating the

important role that structured exercise

programmes can play in living with and

after recovery.

Beddie says the evidence of the benefits

of exercise as medicine, is growing.

“With everything from mental health

to heart disease it is now being well

understood that exercise works in

prevention, and in many cases beneficial

during treatment, alongside more

traditional medical interventions,” he

says.

“New research shows the benefits of

exercise for those with cancer, both

during and post treatment.

“With the financial demands on the New

Zealand health system growing every

day, we need to look at innovative and

cost-effective ways of enhancing existing

treatments, as well as preventing the

need for some treatments in the first

place.

“Exercise professionals are now

being recognised in their role

working alongside other allied health

professionals. Specialist training for

The UK research report says cancers

of the breast, prostate and colon are

amongst the most common in western

societies. Although survival rates are

increasing, the physical and mental

impacts of these cancers and their

treatments are long-lasting.

Physical activity and structured

exercise have an important role to play

in alleviating the physiological and

psychological impact of cancer and its

treatments, their report says.

Cancer is now considered a chronic

condition because more people are living

longer after a cancer diagnosis. The

UK research was about using physical

exercise as part of lifestyle interventions

to improve the health of people living

with and beyond cancer.

ADVANCED CARE

PLANS

Have you thought about what care you

want to receive when you reach the end of

your life? During the course of our lives

we expend an enormous amount of energy

planning where we want to live, what we

want to achieve during our lifetimes, but

we don’t give much time or thought to what

we would like to happen at the end of our

lives.

If you have a major health event that

deprives you of the ability to make your

wishes known to your family or to the

health professionals responsible for your

care, taking some time now to discuss what

SUDOKU - EASY

you want at the end of your life will provide

vital guidance if your loved ones have to

make those decisions for you.

An Advance Care Plan or Advance

Directive (“Advance Care Plan”) is a way to

help you communicate to your loved ones

your wishes about your future health care

and will help your loved ones and your

health care providers to understand what is

important to you and what treatment you

do or do not want in the event that you are

unable to communicate with those around

you.

Under the Code of Health and

Disability Services Consumers’

Rights you have the right to

use an Advance Care Plan to

make your health care wishes

known. Examples might be

the desire not to receive blood

transfusions, be resuscitated or

kept alive with the use of life

support systems.

The Code gives a person, who

has capacity to make decisions

for themselves, the right to

make an Advance Care Plan.

When deciding on whether to

follow your Advance Care Plan,

your health care professional

will try to ensure that:

• you had capacity at the time

the Advance Care Plan was

made;

• you made your Advance Care

Plan of your own free will;

• you were informed and

understood the decisions you

were making; and

• your Advance Care Plan

applies to the current

circumstances, whatever they

may be.

To assist the treating team

considering these factors, you

are encouraged to complete

the section in the Plan dealing

with your treatment and care

choices with your health care

professional and you both

then sign and date this. The

completed Plan is entered onto

an electronic database which is

available to staff if you go into

hospital or to St Johns if your

require assistance.

Talking about your Advance

Care Plan with your loved ones

and in particular your attorney

for care and welfare, if you have

appointed one, is an important

conversation and should be

an integral part of your estate

planning for you.

At Harmans we have a specialist

UC STUDIES

LURE OF THE ICE ENTICES

BRIGHT YOUNG RESEARCHERS

Antarctica continues to call bright young researchers to her

icy shores, and scholarships are making their ground-breaking

research at University of Canterbury (UC) possible.

They are the top of the top,” UC’s Gateway Antarctica director

Professor Wolfgang Rack says of the two students who accepted

scholarships last week, Shinae Montie and Rose Foster. “I am

looking forward to the research they produce. It is amazing, the

difference they can make, because they are really at the forefront

of new knowledge that is relevant to global change.”

The Christchurch City Council (CCC), ChristchurchNZ and

the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) contribute to

scholarships for Antarctic research at UC.

Montie was awarded a $5000 MFAT

scholarship for her research using satellite

remote sensing to detect heatwaves in the

Antarctic Ocean.

“We should be more worried about

heatwaves in the ocean than gradual

warming,” she says.

Twice they flew to Antarctica, but adverse

weather prevented the plane landing. For

these passionate young researchers, who

had only dreamed of visiting Antarctica, it

was hard work.

“It was an emotional rollercoaster,” Foster

says. “When we finally walked out onto

the ice, I just burst into tears!”

Foster was inspired by David

Attenborough’s pioneering Frozen

Planet documentary to give up her flight

attendant job and “do more to help the

planet. The main aspects of polar ecology

that interest me are understanding how

species have adapted to living in such

extreme environments, understanding

the impact climate change is having

on them now and in the future, and

also participating in research which

contributes to the development of effective

conservation initiatives to mitigate these

impacts,” she says.

The trip to the ice was beyond everything

she could have imagined, she says. “It has

ignited my motivation for studying and

conserving the vulnerable species that call

the frozen parts of our planet ‘home’.”

Montie’s interest in Antarctica developed

earlier, during her final years of high

school.

“I began to explore electives that could

accompany my degree in ecology. I

have always been drawn to the marine

environment; however, my focus has since

shifted towards the Southern Ocean. I now

know that I want to dedicate my career to

understanding, learning, educating and

protecting the Antarctic, and the Southern

Ocean region in particular.”

Both students paid tribute to the

organisations who had helped to

facilitate their research and as part of

the Postgraduate Certificate in Antarctic

Studies, UC offers an 8 to 10 day field

course at Scott Base and in Windless

Bight, Antarctica, comprising a mix of

analytical projects (data and information

gathering, analysis and interpretation)

and interpretative exercises. Antarctic

field training and the experience of living

and working in the polar environment are

additional components of this course.

THE NEW

508 GT

BY ROSS KIDDIE

Everyone who laid eyes on it said what a beautiful

car – elegant, luxurious and downright classy.

These comments referred to the entire design of

Peugeot’s new 508 GT Fastback, and I could see

by the looks from other motorists it was certainly

capturing interest. I’m not arguing against that, but

you’d expect nothing less from this exciting French

automobile manufacturer.

Yes, the 508 GT has definite appeal, the style is

sleek and the interior is simply gorgeous. However,

it’s not perfect; while Peugeot have created an

upmarket cabin layout, I found some of the

secondary control buttons frustrating, they don’t

have any haptic feel and sometimes you don’t

believe that the button has generated the function

you want, so you push it again and it takes you to

where you don’t want to be.

There is some sound upon activation, but it’s quiet,

which could be problematic for those in theLiving

Life demographic who may suffer from age-related

hearing loss.

This is all very minor, and after almost two weeks

in the test car I grew to understand it and enjoyed

it immensely. Some might suggest the 508’s 1.6-litre

engine isn’t true grand tourer material, but when

the go pedal is given a bit of a nudge the Fastback

certainly scampers along.

For the record, Peugeot rate the turbocharged fourpotter

at 169kW and 300Nm, both outputs realised

where you want them, low in the rev band at

5500rpm and 2500rpm. As a consequence, power

is generally accessible without lag. As a vehicle, the

508 is a big car, but there’s no suggestion the engine

isn’t up to task, it is one of the sweetest engines to

come out of the Peugeot/Citroen factories, and I

simply adore it.

Power is channelled through to the front wheels

through an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Interestingly, the 508 gets a manual drive mode

that can be selected at will, there are also comfort

and sport modes. Each has its own significance, but

I chose to use normal/comfort mode mostly, only

accessing the others for evaluation purposes.

Certainly, in the sport or manual setting the GT’s

character comes out, it is lively and constantly

eager. For the record, the 508 will lunge to

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

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

On the subject of figures, if you aren’t stirring

the engine to work that turbo boost, it is also

surprisingly economical. Peugeot claims a

combined average cycle of 5.7-litres per 100km

(49mpg); during my time in the GT it was

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

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

100km/h (engine speed 1600rpm).

I took the test car through some of the windy

peninsula roads and I knew I wasn’t going to

be disappointed with its handling. For many

years Peugeot has been the champion in terms

of suspension and ride quality versus handling

control. The 508 has a glorious ride, it’s almost

un-GT-like with soft spring and damper rates, but

it also offers the control you would want in a sports

sedan/liftback.

Riding on high quality Michelin rubber (235/40

x 19in), steerage is millimetre precise and turnin

is direct. At just 1.4m the 508 sits low, body

movement is unaffected by gravitational change,

it is kept even by the suspension along with

complete absorption through the four-corner, fully

independent system.

At $55,990 ($57,990 with nappa leather), it also sits

appealingly in the marketplace. It is a car built with

plenty of French flair, pride, passion and panache,

competing well against competition from its

European counterparts.

At these prices it punches well above its weight,

and if you add in build quality and level of kit, it is

one very desirable grand tourer.

THEATRE/ARTS 33

Award puts musician on world stage

A FORMER Rangi Ruru Girls’

School student is a member of an

emerging London-based string

quartet that has been awarded

the top prize in an international

music competition.

The Marmen Quartet, which

Bryony Gibson-Cornish is a member

of, was named a joint winner

of The Grand Prize at the 2019

Bordeaux International String

Quartet Competition, along with

Simply Quartets last week.

The prize included €20,000

(NZ$34,284) and a three-year

international tour.

This will launch Gibson-

Cornish and her quartet, formally

This allowed her to study for a

Master of Music degree in viola at

The Juilliard School in New York.

Gibson-Cornish then relocated

to London to study for her artist

diploma at the Royal College of

Music, where she was awarded

the Tagore Gold Medal upon

graduation.

Based in London, Gibson-Cornish

was also recently appointed

No. 2 viola with the London

Mozart Players, the United

Kingdom’s longest established

chamber orchestra.

In addition, she freelances with

other orchestras, each job taking

her all over the world, and is a

teaching assistant to her former

professor at the Royal College of

Music.

Gibson-Cornish has kept in

touch with the music department

at Rangi Ruru, and has been back

to assist with chamber music

coaching and mentoring several

times, including a week-long

residency in 2017.

“My time at Rangi set me up

to have the ideal mindset as a

musician forging a career path

overseas,” she said.

Gibson-Cornish said the school

atmosphere was encouraging and

inspiring.

“I really felt like it was possible

to aim for the stars.’’

EMERGING STAR: Former Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

student Bryony Gibson-Cornish is a member of The

GARDENING ADVICE

Today’s winning question came

from Maria Allan Kennedy.

Congratulations!

In the last few months, one spot

Q in my garden has been affected

by what I understand to be

‘clubroot’. I have been advised

to plant different veggies there and/or

spread dolomite lime. Is this correct and

can you suggest a remedy?

A

WIN a Daltons Rose Care and Planting Pack!

Clubroot mainly affects Brassicas such as

cabbages and cauliflowers. This disease can be

identified by the appearance of thick, swollen roots

that prevent healthy growth of the host plant. You

are correct in stating that applications of dolomite

lime are a successful means of controlling clubroot.

Crop rotation in your veggie garden would also be a good

idea. Remember that if the same crop is grown in the same

area, in the same ground for several years in succession,

two undesirable things can happen. First, the same plant

nutrients are taken continually from the soil and second, if

the particular crop being grown has a disease that is present

in the soil, in this case club root, then the disease will be

encouraged to multiply in the ground.

Leave applying generous quantities of the dolomite lime to

your garden until spring (when preparing your summer veggie

garden), rather than applying it in winter when most of the

lime will be washed away.

Read our How to Grow guide for more advice:

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

For growing advice and information on

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

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

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

for strong, healthy blooms.

Protect your pruned roses from frost

THERE IS more written about

pruning roses than almost any

other aspect of their care.

Yet, why do we prune our

roses?

Here are a few key reasons:

Encourage new growth and

more blooms. Maintain the

health of the rose by removing

old wood, improve air circulation

within the bush.

Maintain a specific shape,

especially for climbing and pillar

roses, and those that are pegged

down.

Not all roses have the same

need to be pruned, some just

need an annual “going over’’

after flowering to remove the

dead wood. Other roses, most

notably the highly bred hybrid

teas and floribundas, need regular

pruning. If you garden on a

light, sandy soil then prune your

roses only lightly as they will not

be able to support the vigorous

new growth that hard pruning

encourages.

The time to tackle pruning

is in the winter while they are

dormant, before they burst into

growth. In some areas of New

Zealand, and in some seasons,

there may seem to be almost

no period of dormancy and so

you must choose your moment

carefully. So do not prune when

there is still a risk of severe frost,

as any new growth will be frosted

and die back.

You will have to cut back to

the next bud, reducing the plant

further.

Most bush roses flower on the

current year’s growth.

A hard prune will produce

more vigorous new growth.

Remove the oldest cane on the

plant; this keeps the bush fresh

and vigorous.

Then reduce thick, strong stems

by about half their height. Thin

canes need to be cut back to onethird

their height.

Try to keep the centre of the

plant open. A mess of spindly,

twiggy growth in the middle

of the plant restricts light and

air circulation, encouraging

disease.

HEALTH: Hard pruning roses will produce more vigorous

growth.

Bad boy to businessman

Being expelled from

school for fighting and

living out of a car was

an unlikely pathway

to rugby success for

one of the Crusaders

most influential players.

Gordon Findlater

reports

•Over the Super Rugby season, The Star will look back each

week at some of the identities who graced the Crusaders

jersey in the past and discover where they are now

RON CRIBB is a prime example

of how the Crusaders can turn

an Auckland bad boy into All

Blacks material.

The 42-year-old father-of-two

is now a well-established figure

in the business world. However,

he is best remembered in this

part of New Zealand for scoring

the Crusaders only try in their

20-19 win over the Brumbies in

the 2000 Super Rugby final.

The No 8 scored in his

signature style by putting

through a grubber kick to

himself before crossing the line.

The try was one of seven in a

season which also saw him cross

the line in the semi-final against

the Highlanders.

Cribb’s performances in red

and black throughout the 2000

season set him up to make

15 appearances for the All

Blacks over the next two years.

However, it could have easily

turned out very differently –

he grew up with a reputation

for bad behaviour in West

Auckland.

Cribb played rugby league

until he was 17. He was a student

at Auckland’s Rutherford

College at the same time as

Kiwis representatives Robbie and

Henry Paul. However, his days

there were cut short when he was

expelled for fighting. He then

moved to Massey High School,

where he joined his childhood

friend Troy Flavell.

“I was getting into a bit of

trouble there (Massey High)

and they encouraged us to leave

school,” said Cribb.

“I look back and I’m pretty

embarrassed of my behaviour. I

was quite aggressive, causing a

bit of trouble and bullying.”

Through a technicality, Cribb’s

father found a way to keep his

son at school. However, one of

the conditions of his attendance

was that he play for Massey’s first

XV.

“My first year I wasn’t in the

rugby system at all and then

Russell Jones selected me for

North Harbour,” said Cribb.

“We ended up finishing third

in the school competition and

when I got home there was

a letter saying you’ve been

selected to play for the New

Zealand Schools and you’re off to

England, Scotland and Wales for

eight weeks.

“All of a sudden I was the first

New Zealand schoolboy from

Massey and it was a big deal. The

school was all over the awards

and in the paper, so all of a

sudden, I went from zero to hero

. . . I took advantage of that being

the little s**t I was and wore

whatever I wanted to school. I

had a lot of growing up to do

that’s for sure.”

Following school, Cribb went

through what he describes as a

rough patch.

He made the New Zealand

under-19 squad while living out

of a car due to problems at home.

Cribb says his former under-19

coach still tells the story about

him sleeping in a car to motivate

players who don’t turn up to

training.

“At night I had a dog which

kept me company. I did 10km

runs in the evening and I would

eat at friends or have a shower at

friends where I could . . . I used

my sport as an avenue to get me

back on track because I went off

the rails for a bit, but I stayed

focused as much as I could,” said

Cribb.

“I went through a lot of

injuries because I didn’t

understand the importance of

nutrition. I over trained and

was undernourished, so I was

constantly getting sick.”

In 1998, Cribb made 13

appearances and scored six tries

for North Harbour in the NPC.

He looked sure to have a career

at the Blues in 1999 before being

dropped.

They dropped me for

something that wasn’t even

correct. In fact I was actually

trying to help a teammate, so I

was pretty devastated,” he said.

Cribb went back to club rugby

in Auckland before getting a

phone call from Wayne Smith

midway through the season

after regular Crusaders No 8

Steve Surridge suffered a serious

injury. He initially thought he

was being pranked by Troy

Flavell, but Cribb was asked by

Smith to move south and join

the Crusaders.

“I went down and they did a

3km run and I came last, even

though I did it 12min, but Con

Barrell beat me in the last 100m.

I was pretty gutted to come last

because I’m quite competitive,”

he said.

Cribb says he asked the

coaching team to give him a

chance and agreed to put in

extra training to bring his fitness

up to speed.

The Crusaders coaching staff

were also the first to encourage

Cribb’s flamboyant style of play

after previous coaches had told

him forwards don’t kick the ball.

EXCITING: Ron Cribb

wasn’t afraid to show off

his footwork while gracing

the Crusaders No 8 jersey.

(Above) – Cribb is now

the national relationship

manager at Metro

Performance Glass after

making a career for himself

in the corporate world.

They were the first coaches I

had which encouraged that. They

said we didn’t bring you down

here to hit rucks, we brought you

down here to get the ball in your

hands and do the stuff we know

that you can do, which was quite

refreshing,” said Cribb.

“Canterbury changed my

whole mind-set, I started seeing

things differently. Guys like

Shag [Steve Hansen] had a huge

influence in that; he kept me

grounded every week.”

Following his breakout 2000

title-winning campaign with the

Crusaders, Cribb returned to the

Blues in 2001.

However, a series of injuries

and a knee reconstruction

limited his play at the highest

level.

In late 2003, he joined the

Kobelco Steelers in Japan. After

five seasons there, he played

one season with Ravigo in Italy

before returning to New Zealand

to be closer to his son and

daughter.

In 2010, he hoped to sign

off with one last showing for

North Harbour, but a prolapsed

disc in his neck which caused a

trip to the hospital also revealed

a broken collarbone he’d had for

six weeks.

“I was wondering why I was

struggling to lift in the lineout,

I thought I was just getting old,”

said Cribb.

Following his rugby playing

career, Cribb had a brief stint

in real estate before being told

about a role as an account

manager at Fletcher Steel.

“I had no qualifications or

anything so I was starting from

scratch, which is really hard, but

I won them over with one answer

really,” said Cribb.

They said to me, so you’re

role is you’re going to have

customers that will potentially

be let down and it will be outside

of your control, how are you

going to deal with that? I said,

can I answer that as a question

. . . have you ever let down four

and a half million people? I

think I can handle one or two let

downs.”

After putting the HR

department into stitches, he got

the job and worked there for two

years. He then took on a national

key account manager roles at

Tasman Insulation and Mitre

10. Cribb is now the national

relationship manager at Metro

Performance Glass.

Cribb says his ability to

move into the corporate world

following rugby is one of the

accomplishments he is most

proud of in his life.

“I was given a contract with

North Harbour during my last

year of high school and I really

didn’t have anything else . . .

a lot of the skills I’ve learnt

through rugby I’ve transitioned

into the corporate arena. It’s little

things like the way you think

when you make a decision,” said

Cribb.

There’s a lot of people in the

corporate arena that will make

decisions that best suit them or

make them look good.

“I’m more what’s good for

the business and the team?

I understand individuals,

different characters and different

values all coming under the

one umbrella . . . it’s things like

Gilbert Enoka taught us when

we were playing, which is your

mindset, and so that’s what I did

and I learnt on the way.”

Outside of work, Cribb is

actively involved with his

children’s sporting activities.

His 15-year-old son Nico is a

promising outside back and

100m sprinter.

Meanwhile, his 17-year-old

daughter, Helena, is playing

representative netball.

300th game

• By Gordon Findlater

MARIST Albion stalwart

Rowan O’Gorman will

become just the second

player in the club’s

history to bring up 300

games when they host

New Brighton at Edgar

MacIntosh on Saturday.

Only former Canterbury

prop Tala Kele (330) has

played more premier

games for Marist.

O’Gorman remembers

playing in Kele’s 300th

game, which was also

against New Brighton.

The rum was out and

the boys were in fine form

that night. I’d imagine

we’ll rip into it again this

Saturday, there will be a

few friends and family

come down,” he said.

O’Gorman, 37, played

his first premier match

for Marist in 2000 against

Shirley.

After playing for the

division two side earlier

in the day, he travelled to

Burwood Park to run on

at loose forward for the

final 35min.

“I was playing alongside

Johnny Leo’o which

was pretty awesome. I

remember him making a

good run after a lineout

and getting an off-load to

me,” said O’Gorman.

“At that stage, I was

trying to make it and

seeing whether I could

get up and play pro rugby.

Obviously that wasn’t to

be and I’ve just kept on

playing footy and enjoyed

it.”

O’Gorman could have

easily played 400 games

for Marist by now had

it not been for two years

spent in England, a season

with Sumner and another

in Nelson. Between 2009

and 2017, he also racked

up 51 appearances and

scored 26 tries for West

Coast. O’Gorman also

played for Nelson Bays in

2003.

His favourite memory

for Marist came in 2003

when they defeated High

School Old Boys at Rugby

Park to claim the metro

title.

They were a stacked

team. There would have

been at least 10 Crusaders

playing in that game and

four or five All Blacks

. . . we had Ben Blair and

Casey Laulala. I think

they had Mehrts [Andrew

Mehrtens], Dan Carter

and I think both the

Mauger brothers might

have been involved as

well,” said O’Gorman

There was a massive

crowd there and getting

the bag-pipes back into the

clubrooms afterwards was

pretty amazing.”

These days Saturday’s

are all about rugby for

O’Gorman.

His day starts at 9am

watching his three-yearold

son Noah play for

Marist. He then coaches

the Christ’s College

under-15 team before

lunchtime.

It’s then into physio

for a bit loosening up

and strapping before the

premier side kicks off at

2.45pm.

Up until late last year,

O’Gorman was also the

rugby development officer

at Marist.

He says he has no plans

to retire from playing

anytime soon, meaning

Kele’s record of 330 could

be under threat.

“I still go by the same

token. Have a few too

many beers on Saturday

night and then rock up

Sunday and get on with

it,” said O’Gorman.

Dumbing down the Crusaders’ horsemen

Volleyballers reunite on big stage

• By Gordon Findlater

THE ASIAN under-23

volleyball championship in

Vietnam next month will be a

reunion for four Christchurch

women and their coach.

Petra Manderson, Tasmyn

Fahey, Nicky Pio and Chloe

Mikaera have been named in the

New Zealand side to compete at

the 15-team tournament which

starts on July 13.

They will be joined on the trip

by their former Burnside High

School coach Sam Ryburn –

who is also the under-23 coach.

All four were part of at least

one of the Burnside High

teams which won back-to-back

national secondary school titles

in 2015 and 2016.

Pio and Mikaera have been

playing for the Shirley club,

while Manderson and Fahey

are currently on volleyball

scholarships at division one

THE STATE of the new

politically correct Crusaders

horsemen can only be compared

to turning up to your favourite

bar only to find out they’ve

changed their taps and now only

serve low alcohol beer.

The Crusaders horsemen made

their first appearance since the

March 15 terrorist attacks during

last week’s semi-final win over the

colleges in the United States.

“Going to division one is

a major step up – everyone’s

bigger and everyone’s faster. I

was lucky enough to get to

play all of last year and it’s

tough, but very cool,” said

Manderson.

The New Zealand team will

aim to secure a top three finish

at the Asian championship and

book a spot at the under-23

world championships. For

Highlanders. However, they now

sport a much different look.

Long gone are the six marauding

horsemen turning Crusaders

fans into a near feral state. We

now have six lame dads sporting

helmets and waving flags on

ponies . . . I know we’re trying

to turn Super Rugby stale with

over saturation of teams and the

introduction of a conference

Ryburn in the New

HUNTER

Fahey, who has just transferred

to North Carolina A&T State

University, the decision to

come home to prepare for the

tournament was easy.

“I kind of came back to play

for him [Ryburn]. I was in

the States, but I knew he was

coaching so I wanted to try and

make his team,” said Fahey.

They will face No 3 seed

Vietnam in their group, as well

as Turkmenistan.

Orange ball debut

• By Tatiana Gibbs

ORANGE CRICKET balls will

be used instead of the traditional

red or balls in some afternoon

club cricket matches this season.

Christchurch metro

cricket says the new

balls will initially

be introduced into

selected social

grades.

The orange

Kookaburra

Crown twopiece

ball was

selected during

a series of trials

last season, which

compared white, pink

and orange balls. After

being tested for visibility and

performance on grass and

artificial pitches, the orange ball

performed well.

Much like Super Rugby itself

we should have let the horsemen

go out on a high and killed

them off completely rather than

dumbing them down.

cricket general manager Mike

Harvey: “With a number of

teams wearing white clothing,

this makes it more difficult to see

white balls.”

“Feedback suggests it is much

easier to see for batsmen

and fielders, which

will make it safer for

play,” he said.

The change

will occur in 14

grades across

men’s, women’s

and youth

formats.

The change will

be introduced in

phases to allow clubs

to use their current

stock of red cricket balls.

The presidents men, division

three men, social eights women,

and youth women grades will be

the first to use the new ‘jaffa’ ball

in October.

How you heat your home depends on a number of

factors. Figuring out the best way to heat your home

continues to be a matter for debate.

Several things are undisputed. A warm, dry

home is essential for comfort and good health, good

insulation dramatically increases the efficiency of

any heating system and ventilation is an important

consideration.

Most homes are heated by electricity, gas, or wood.

In New Zealand, heating accounts for approximately

30 percent of a home’s annual energy consumption.

There are many things you can do to reduce

consumption and cost.

The World Health Organisation recommends a

temperature of 18 deg C for indoor living areas, and

slightly less for bedrooms. It recommends slightly

higher temperatures for vulnerable people – the

elderly and small children. Studies have shown that

indoor temperatures below 12 degrees can disrupt

sleep.

Among all these considerations, how you heat

your home is a matter of personal choice, with many

options available.

Heat pumps are generally the most common and

cost-effective form of home heating in New Zealand.

Used properly, they heat quickly and are convenient.

However, you need to have the right sized unit for

the area and they don’t work when electricity is not

available. They tend to be room-specific but ducted

heat pumps are becoming more popular and are

cost-effective, especially in new builds, but can also

be installed into established homes.

Modern wood burners may be the closest you

can get to an open-fire feel, but are much more

efficient. Wood is generally a renewable fuel, and if

you have a cheap or free supply, a wood burner may

be the least expensive heating option. They heat

large areas and are not dependent on electricity but

there is the chopping and stacking to be done, flues

need to be cleaned regularly and older models can

contribute to air pollution and may violate strict air

quality regulations – www.mfe.govt.nz has detailed

information regarding this.

Oamaru

It’s your move!

Spacious stand-alone contemporary

townhouse located in a

prime position on the city fringe.

Superb easycare lock and leave

option attractive to young professionals

or those down sizing.

Fabulous carparking including

room for motorhome/caravan.

Home heating –

electricity, gas or wood?

Pellet fires are typically more efficient than wood

burners but can have a smaller output. They require

electricity but some have a battery backup and they

are thermostatically controlled with timers. These

must comply with regulations which are also detailed

on the Ministry for the Environment website.

Gas heating is common and convenient. Central

heating systems can be zone controlled and provide

warm air circulation. Flued gas heaters are best, as

unflued and portable gas heaters produce lots of

moisture and emit pollutants that can be unsafe.

Flued gas heating systems can be installed in most

homes. They are fast heating and are relatively

inexpensive to run. However gas is not a renewable

resource and prices can vary widely.

The greatest source of energy is actually free.

Harnessing the sun can dramatically reduce heating

costs and is the most environmentally friendly way to

heat your home. Passive heating combines insulation

with good design, accomplished more effectively

in new builds but also able to be incorporated into

existing homes.

Getting the sun’s warmth into your home is a

function of the design; keeping it in is a function

of the insulation. There is a wealth of information

online as passive heating becomes normative in the

design and building industry.

Websites such as energywise.govt.nz and

smarterhomes.org.nz have comprehensive

information on and tips for, heating your home in

the colder months.

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

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

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

month

A NEW 60km/h sp ed limit and

double ye low lines will be in

place on Dyers Pa s Rd by early

May.

The sp ed limit change was

a proved by the city counci last

w ek.

A decision to paint double yellow

lines on the stretch betw en

Summit Rd and the Sign of the

Takahe was earlier made by the

Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board.

Bu the Banks Peninsula Community

Board decided against

ye low lines on the Summit Rd-

Governors Bay section due to the

road’s na rowness and general

condition.

The changes are designed to try

and reduce the crash rate.

Insta lation of the double

ye low lines, the new sp ed limit

signs and raised centre line pavement

markers will begin in mid

April.

The work i scheduled to take

place betw en April 15-18, 2-26,

While the work is done, Dyers

EDITOR

Gaynor stanley

There are few thing sadder than drab white walls, I reckon, and

yet New Zealanders have long surrounded ourselves with them. So

when a painter started splashing some plucky pigment around Star

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

cosy mustard yellow spread over the entire far wall, the brightening

of mood was palpable. People commented on how happy the colour

made them feel, how much warmer the atmosphere was, how the

sunny tone somehow lightened the load of constant deadlines.

It was grea to see more confidence using colour, pattern and

texture in the newly completed private homes we feature in this

magazine too. Where not so long ago we might have felt neutral

shades of brown or grey were somewhat audacious, today’s newly

built homes pop with vibrant blues ( Jay and Rebekah’s place, page

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

18) champion a monochromati colour scheme inside and out,

while Sridhar and Susanna (page 63) chose dramatic black iron

contrasting with smooth golden cedar to colour their new world.

It was also eviden that more homeowners and building industry

professionals are getting behind the movement to build better

homes for the Christchurch climate. Warmer, healthier and cheaper

to run is the brie from owner seeking builders with the know-how

to construct their home from smarter building materials and designs

that keep the cold out and the dust and electricity bi ls down.

I really hope this magazine, and its associated Home & Living

Show ( June 28-30), leave you brimming with the knowledge and

inspiration to smarten up your home too.
