Mother wants apology

terror

attacks

• By Sophie Cornish

ALL ANGELA O’Connor wants

is for the man responsible for her

daughter’s death is to look her in

the eye and say: “I’m sorry.”

Speaking publicly for the first

time, Miss O’Connor

told The Star her family is seeking

a remorseful apology and

a jail term when Darrin Ray

Stewart is sentenced in the High

Court at Christchurch tomorrow.

On November 16, Stewart was

driving drunk and high when

he crashed into a fence and

building at Christchurch East

School on Gloucester St, killing

Alexia Noble and injuring three

others.

He then fled the scene and

handed himself in two days later.

•Story, pages 6 & 7

THE PRESS has received a

threatening email over the March

15 mosque attacks, prompting

extra security at the newspaper’s

building.

The anonymous email was

sent on Tuesday and singled out

a former staff member involved

in covering the terror attacks at

the Al Noor mosque in Deans

Ave and Linwood Islamic

Centre.

Police said yesterday security

advice had been given but they

would not be providing any more

information due to operational

reasons.

In the email, the sender

said they would be coming to

Christchurch to carry out another

attack.

The contents of the email

put The Press on alert and

prompted the police to talk

to the former staff member.

GIVING OUT free shopping

vouchers is proving to be

successful in getting pregnant

women to quit smoking.

An independent evaluation

of the Te Hā – Waitaha’s Pregnancy

Incentive Programme

showed an substantial increase in

referral, enrolment and retention

rates.

The programme was designed

in 2017 by a group of maternity,

child health and smoke-free experts

to support pregnant women

to become smoke-free.

It consists of three incentive

payments, $50, $80 and $100

paid in The Warehouse vouchers

when the mother reaches specific

milestones, and a mother and

baby package of $70 to celebrate a

smoke-free birth.

A total of $38,000 is paid out

per year in vouchers. About

$78,000 has been spent so far,

since the programme’s inception.

The initiative is funded by

the Canterbury District Health

Board through a smoke-free

budget allocation from the Ministry

of Health which is about

$930,360 per year.

A free nicotine mouth spray

is provided to each woman, and

free Pēpi pods (flax baby beds)

are also distributed in the third

trimester.

Said Canterbury District

Health Board smokefree manager

news online at www.star.kiwi

Shopping vouchers help stop

pregnant women smoking

ACHIEVING RESULTS: An incentive programme which offers vouchers to stop pregnant

woman smoking has proven to be a success following a recent evaluation.

Vivien Daley: “The qualitative information

from the programme

participants was very positive,

with the women reporting high

rates of satisfaction with the

programme, and a belief that the

incentives helped maintain their

motivation.

“Midwives feel that being able

to offer the incentive programme

makes it easier to address smoking

with their clients, and that

the client is more likely to consent

to a referral . . .”

‘Pregnant and smoking’ rates

have changed very little in the

last 10 years, although smoking

rates in the general population

have consistently decreased over

that time.

Māori and Pasifika are overrepresented

in the ‘pregnant

and smoking’ group but the

programme is addressing this

with higher rates of referral and

uptake of Māori and Pasifika in

the programme.

Race for Riccarton Ward ramps up

• By Louis Day

THE RACE to become the next

city councillor for Riccarton is

heating up.

The People’s Choice have withdrawn

one of their candidates

from running for Environment

Canterbury and thrown him in

the now fourhorse

race for

the Riccarton

Ward.

The leftleaning

political

group has put

forward union

organiser and

Catherine

Chu

John

Connelly

former pastor

of Riccarton

Baptist Church

Anthony

Rimell as their

candidate.

“I’m running

because

Riccarton is

an amazing

diverse community

that

deserves a

progressive

voice with a

positive vision

for Riccarton and Christchurch,”

Mr Rimell said.

This comes after city councillor

Vicki Buck’s decision to not

stand again caught The People’s

Choice by surprise and left them

RUNNING FOR OFFICE: Anthony Rimell has pulled out of the ECan race to stand for The

People’s Choice in the city council’s Riccarton Ward.

scrambling to find another candidate.

The People’s Choice is making

a major bid to win as many council

seats as it can in the October

local body elections.

The group is fighting against

possible sales of city councilowned

assets.

It’s main political opponent,

centre-right group Independent

Citizens is wanting to start a

discussion around asset sales.

Ms Buck is an independent city

councillor, but is a former member

of the Labour Party.

She has previously spoken

against asset sales which The

People’s Choice would have been

relying on during the next council’s

term.

The People’s Choice chairman

Keir Leslie said a vote for

Mr Rimell would contribute to

preventing the sale of dividendgenerating

assets.

He joins Catherine Chu of Independent

Citizens who was the

only candidate

to stand against

Ms Buck before

she announced

she would not

be running for

re-election.

Ms Chu questioned

whether

Mr Leslie fully

understood the

ins and outs of

their policies.

Peter Laloli

“We have explained our policy

time and time again and it is not

what they [The People’s Choice]

are making it out to be. We

are open to exploring ideas in

how we can ease the burden on

ratepayers, some assets are completely

off the table but we will

consider some.”

She welcomed Mr Rimell’s

challenge. Mr Rimell will also

join independents Peter Laloli

and John Connelly in the race

to become city councillor for

Riccarton. Mr Laloli, a former

Independent Citizens member,

and Mr Connelly say their

decision to run was prompted by

Ms Buck’s decision to not stand

for re-election.

Time to ‘throw an axel in the works’

TIME FOR CHANGE: Former

technical adviser to John Key, Axel

Wilke has set his sights on a seat

around the ECan table.

• By Louis Day

A FORMER technical adviser

to John Key has announced he

is running for Environment

Canterbury in a bid to “throw

an axel in the works.”

Transport specialist

Axel Wilke will contest the

Christchurch Central-Ōhoko

constituency in the October

local body elections as an independent.

Mr Wilke was appointed

as technical adviser to Prime

Minister Key’s New Zealand

Cycle Trail which is a $100

million-plus project focused on

creating cycle trails

all over the country.

He has never stood

for election before.

Mr Wilke said he

was motivated to

run due to concerns

over the climate

crisis.

“What I really

want to achieve is

a step-change in

public transport provision in

Lan Pham

getting our greenhouse gas

emissions down,” he said.

He is running a joint

campaign with sitting

ECan councillor Lan

Pham in a bid to gain

the two seats on the

Christchurch Central-

Ōhoko constituency.

They will both run as

independents.

“We come from very

different backgrounds,

sure, but we absolutely

share the belief that our

environment is not, and nor

should it be, a political football.

The issues facing Canterbury

require evidence-based

decision making. This leaves

no room for party politics and

hidden agendas,” he said.

Ms Pham was elected in

2016 and gained the fourthhighest

number of votes of any

local body candidate in New

Zealand.

She is a freshwater ecologist

with a background in the notfor-profit

and public sector.

CITY COUNCILLORS James

Gough and Aaron Keown have

been labelled “opportunists” for

voting against the salary of the

city council’s new chief executive.

Crs Gough and Keown were

two of four city councillors to

vote against the $495,000 salary

for Dawn Baxendale, who will

replace outgoing council chief

executive Karleen Edwards.

Mrs Baxendale, who is the

outgoing Birmingham City

Council chief executive, will

be paid $80,000 more than Dr

Edwards.

But left-leaning political

group The People’s Choice

says the vocal opposition of Cr

Gough, who is a member of

the centre-right Independent

Citizens group, and Cr Keown,

who is an independent, since

Mrs Baxendale’s appointment is

inconsistent with the way they

have voted in the past.

They voted in favour of

controversial former chief

executive Tony Marryatt’s

$68,000 pay rise in 2013.

That took his pay packet to

$535,529 and led to a backlash

from the community. Crs

Gough and Keown’s pre-election

billboards were vandalised and

plastered with stickers stating

they had voted for the pay rise.

Said The People’s Choice

chairman Keir Leslie: “The way

they have voted certainly doesn’t

scream consistency. I think there

is a degree of opportunism.”

He suggested their decision to

not support the appointment and

salary of Mrs Baxendale was in a

bid to gain voters.

Cr Gough did not dispute this.

“I would hope that my council

decisions gain voters, because

if they didn’t have the support

of my community, then I’m

probably in the wrong job. It’s

the voters I answer to, not Mr

Leslie,” said Cr Gough.

He said he felt he was part of a

council which made the wrong

decision in granting Mr Marryatt

a pay rise.

news online at www.star.kiwi

NEWS 5

Gough, Keown ‘opportunists’

James Gough

Aaron Keown

Cr Keown said he had learnt

his lesson.

He failed to gain re-election

after supporting Mr Marryatt’s

pay rise but was re-elected in

2016.

“With protest groups and hate

mail and everything when we

did it in the past, I know to listen

to the public and they were not

happy,” he said.

Mr Leslie said he also found

it inconsistent that Cr Gough

cautioned against reducing

councillor salaries but voted

against the salary of the new

chief executive.

Cr Gough previously told

The Star salaries would be a

factor in attracting high-quality

Keir Leslie

councillors.

Said Mr Leslie: “It seems a

bit funny that when it comes to

his pay packet, there is a strong

stance that pay has an indication

on quality there, but on other

people’s he takes a different

view.”

Cr Gough did not see this as

inconsistent.

“It would be [inconsistent]

if a councillor’s salary was

set at a pay rate 500 per cent

above what it currently is and

if it was negotiated by the

councillor instead of being

set independently by the

Remuneration Authority,” he

said.

Harding

FOR NEARLY two years Geoff

Booth has been battling to seek

answers from health authorities

after losing his 21-year-old son

Liam to a suspected suicide.

Now he will

be running for

the Canterbury

District Health

Board elections

in October in a

bid to focus on

mental health Geoff Booth

and raise awareness

on suicide.

“If I can’t change it (the health

system) from the outside maybe I

can change it from the inside,” Mr

Booth said.

He said if he can stop one young

person from doing what Liam did,

he will have done a good job.

In October 2017, Mr Booth

laid a complaint with the CDHB

after Liam was found dead in

Beckenham Park, near his flat, on

October 2. The case is still before

the coroner.

Over the next month Mr Booth

will lodge a formal complaint

with the Health and Disability

Commissioner.

‘She was bubbly, happy, chirpy, loved by

• By Sophie Cornish

IT WAS that middle-of-the-night

phone call every parent dreads.

Just after midnight on

November 17, Angela O’Connor

was woken by her daughter

Kandie, telling her to get up and

get in the car.

“I’ll explain on the way,” she

said.

During the drive to the hospital,

she was told there had been

a car crash and that her son,

Zachery Noble, niece Angel Livingstone

and their friend, Tristan

Le Comte, were in hospital.

“What about Alexia?” she said

and continued to ask.

It wasn’t until after 3.30am

when she found out Alexia had

been killed. She died instantly

from her injuries at the scene.

The 18-year-old, who wasn’t

wearing a seat belt, was thrown

10m from the vehicle, which

crashed into a Christchurch East

School building on Gloucester St.

The five friends, including the

driver, Darrin Ray Stewart, had

been having a night out.

Stewart was drunk and high

when he got into his Mitsubishi

Diamante on Linwood Ave at

about 11pm and drove the four

friends to town.

Several witnesses described

him as visibly intoxicated.

He stopped to get petrol on

Linwood Ave, where his friends

INSEPARABLE: Alexia and her twin brother Zachery ‘did everything together.’ Flowers and notes were left at the crash

scene.

noticed an unmarked police car.

Stewart asked another friend to

drive as he did not have a licence,

but the friend refused.

He then left the petrol station

and was pulled over by police.

He parked the car unsafely, and

was asked to move it forward by

the police officer.

Instead, Stewart fled and was

pursued by police for about two

minutes before abandoning

the pursuit after he went over a

speed bump and drove onto the

wrong side of the road at an estimated

speed of between 110 and

160km/h, witnesses said.

It was later found out, following

his guilty plea in May, that

the passengers in the vehicle had

pleaded for him to stop.

Miss O’Connor said Alexia

begged him to stop so she could

get out. She was told he replied,

“shut the f**k up.”

Shortly after, Stewart hit a curb

on the wrong side of the road and

lost control.

The car crashed through a

metal fence and hit the building.

Stewart then got out of the

car, jumped the fence and fled

through the school grounds.

It was two days later when he

finally handed himself in to

police.

It was later revealed his car

had one bald tyre and three leaking

shock absorbers, as well as

exhaust issues that would

not have passed a warrant of

fitness.

He had cut out one of the seat

belts to use as a dog lead in the

days before the crash.

In May, he admitted a charge

of manslaughter, three charges

of reckless driving causing

injury, failing to stop or ascertain

injury, and failing to stop for a

police officer.

Tomorrow he will be sentenced

in the High Court at Christchurch.

Miss O’Connor said the

devastating loss of her “bubbly

and happy” daughter has had a

significant impact on their large

family.

Alexia and her twin brother

Zachery, who was in the car, were

inseparable and “did everything

together.”

Alexia, Zachery and Stewart

worked together at Polarcold

Stores Ltd, but Miss O’Connor said

Zachery and Stewart were friends

“for years” before the crash.

everyone’

A lack of remorse by Stewart

during court appearances was

difficult to deal with, Miss

O’Connor said.

“We haven’t even got a sorry

from him, not from his mouth,

from his lawyer’s mouth. But he

sits in the courtroom and smirked,

we think it is disgusting.

There’s no remorse at all, not

that we are seeing. We have seen

it over Facebook, to my son, for

the whole world to see. But, we

don’t count that.”

However, his defence counsel,

Anselm Williams, said Stewart

had been advised not to contact

the family and was open to holding

a restorative justice meeting.

But Miss O’Connor said her

family does not want one.

Mr Williams said a psychological

assessment of Stewart

had revealed he was “incredibly

remorseful, apologetic and sad,”

about what had happened.

“We are not going to forgive

him, because he left the scene. If

he had stayed at the scene of the

accident, it could be a different

story. But he left and hid for the

whole weekend . . . he should have

checked on his friends.

“Everything would’ve changed

if he stayed,” Miss O’Connor said.

Six victim impact statements will

be read out in court tomorrow.

“She was bubbly, always our entertainment,

said.

“Whenever I was sad she would

always say: ‘I love you mummy.’

She knew that would get me smiling

and she would play our song

. . . she would have been a great

mother. We won’t get to see that.”

Alexia’s young nieces and

nephews are struggling to deal

with her death.

Her five-year-old niece often

“All they want is their aunty

TRAGEDY: The gas explosion on Friday reduced this house to matchsticks.

Nine homes still affected

NINE HOMES impacted by the

Northwood gas explosion have

been given restricted or

dangerous building notices.

Affected residents could face

months, if not the rest of the

year, out of their homes following

Friday morning’s blast.

The explosion on Friday left six

people injured, with one person

in a critical condition.

City council head of regulatory

compliance Tracey Weston

said nine notices had been

issued under the Building Act

– the same notices it placed on

properties deemed to be at risk

of rockfall after the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

Four homes received dangerous

building notices, which

prevents use or occupation of the

building.

A further five homes were

issued restricted access notices,

which limits access to owners

retrieving personal items,

and tradespeople undertaking

repairs.

WorkSafe is now leading the

inquiry into the Marble Court

explosion, which could take up

to a year to complete.

A WorkSafe spokeswoman

said under the Health and Safety

Work Act 2015, it had one year

to decide whether or not to lay

charges.

The investigation may not

take this long to complete,” she

said.

Lawyer Simon Shamy, who

is representing Gas Unlimited

owner Glen Smith, who came

forward after the blast, said his

client would fully co-operate

with the ongoing investigation.

It is understood Mr Smith’s

firm carried out work at 9

Marble Court prior to the

explosion.

More police

based out of

New Brighton

station

• By Matt Slaughter

A SUBSTANTIAL increase

in officer numbers at the New

Brighton Police Station will aim

to reduce crime in the east and

Canterbury.

Last Monday, 25 new front line

staff started at the station and

this number will soon grow to 40.

The number of sergeants at the

station will increase from three to

eight and the number of staff in

total from 20 to 60.

Sergeant Jim Currie said the

new police would work alternating

shifts 24 hours a day, seven

days a week. He said they would

patrol all of the areas New Brighton

police had in the past, but

would also respond to emergency

call-outs throughout Canterbury.

Said Sergeant Currie: “These

guys, they’re what we call our

emergency response. You ring

111, they’re the ones that come to

the jobs.

They’ll be serving the whole

of Canterbury, but they’ll be

based out of here, so you’ll see

them around more often because

they’ll be starting and finishing

here, so you’ll see them more and

more around New Brighton as

well.”

New-look food court to

enhance customer experience

Always aiming to provide an enjoyable and diverse shopping

experience for its customers, the popular Westfield shopping

centre in Riccarton is enhancing that experience with a facelift for

its food court.

Comprising 10 outlets with a variety of food choices, the whole

food court area is now lighter, brighter and more open, while the

addition of lush greenery, and the new improved seating layout

have been designed to create a more relaxed fast/casual eating

environment.

“We are delighted to showcase our new-look food court to our

community,” centre manager Kirstie McNulty says.

She invites customers to join in the celebrations marking the

launch of the upgraded food court, which kick off on Thursday

evening, July 25. More FM will be on site, along with the Winning

Wheel giving customers the chance to win exciting prizes.

The entertainment will also include face painting, music and

action entertainment, waiters with food sampling and balloon

twisting. The celebrations will continue throughout the evening

on Friday, July 26, August 1 and 2, and August 8 and 9, with face

painting, balloon twisting, entertainment and giveaways.

The food court is not the only place to enjoy a bite at Westfield,

however – there are more than 30 eating places located around

the centre, all under one roof. These combined with the major

retailers, fashion brands and numerous other specialty stores give

customers the opportunity to enjoy true one-stop shopping at

Westfield, with something there for the whole family. Extensive,

easily accessible free parking adds to the convenience.

The food court renovations are a follow-on from the previous

upgrading work that was carried out some 18 months ago at the

centre and included painting of the whole interior and the addition

of comfort zones and plantings, Ms McNulty says.

Prisoner accommodation

to be finished a year late

Celebrate 25 years of

Christchurch Casino.

• By Sophie Cornish

A CONSTRUCTION project to

help manage the rising population

at Rolleston Prison will be

delivered a year behind schedule.

Two 125-bed modular prisoner

accommodation units are expected

to be completed by November.

The project, led by Australian

company, Decmil Construction

NZ Ltd, was originally planned to

be completed by November last

year.

Bulging prison populations

prompted the fast-tracked construction.

In May 2016, the Government

announced $355.6 million over

four years to cope with rising prisoner

numbers.

Units are also being installed in

four other Corrections sites across

the country, with one unit also

being constructed at Christchurch

Women’s Prison.

The off-shore kit-set units, which

are made in China, are a first for

New Zealand.

The units for low-security prisoners

consist of 60 double-bunked

cells and two single bunked cells

and other spaces for prisoners and

staff, such as laundry rooms and

They are fitted together on-site.

The construction at Rolleston

Prison has been met with challenges

relating to design revision,

weather and ground conditions,

transport damage and obtaining

building consents, Department of

Corrections deputy chief executive

Jeremy Lightfoot said.

“Challenges of this nature are

not unexpected when producing

on this scale. Due to these challenges,

we now expect these units

to be completed by November

2019,” he said.

The kit-set prison cells are

quicker and cheaper to produce

than a new prison and have been

used in Australia, the United States

and United Kingdom.

The rapid increase in the prison

population peaked at 10,820 in

March last year.

“While a decline in prisoner

numbers since March 2018 has

helped relieve pressure on the

prison network, Corrections is

continuing to plan for future

population changes.”

UC’s gender-neutral toilets

don’t work out as planned

• By Sophie Cornish

GENDER-NEUTRAL toilets have

not worked as planned in a $28

million rebuild development at

Canterbury University.

The University of Canterbury

Students’ Association (UCSA) has

had to install temporary measures

after complaints about the lines to

use the toilets at its new building,

Haere-roa.

The building’s events centre, the

Ngaio Marsh Theatre, opened it

doors on July 12.

Students took to Facebook to

complain about the more than

30min wait to use the loos, which

are gender-neutral and do not

include urinals.

As a result, the UCSA has told

students that temporary measures

will be in place for the rest of ‘reorientation

week’, a celebration of

the start of the second semester.

UCSA president Sam Brosnahan

said the association will be

covering the costs of the temporary

toilets.

“While Haere-roa has more

toilets than the old events centre,

we understand there’s room for

improvement . . . our design team

for the building are also looking at

a range of options for a permanent

fix, which includes a urinal,” the

UCSA said on Facebook.

There are currently 22 toilets

available for the venue, which can

hold a capacity of 330 seated guests

or 650 standing. The former events

centre, The Foundry, had 18 toilets

and two urinals.

The UCSA also said the

temporary measures installed were

‘gender-neutral portaloos’, but then

proceeded to separate the existing

toilets and new temporary toilets

by gender, saying the existing

toilets would be for females and

temporary ones for males.

Students have taken the situation

lightly, comparing the irony

between the building’s name

‘Haere-roa’, which means ‘the

longest stream’, to its toilet issues.

Mr Brosnahan said the new

building is at the forefront of

progressive design.

The toilets are gender-neutral

and fully compliant with the

building code requirements for

gender-neutral toilets. Therefore,

they have a sink in each one, and

fully-formed walls,” he said.

The gender-neutral toilets

were the result of a focus group

for the building that we held

five years ago, when student

feedback strongly supported going

gender-neutral (including for gig

environments),” he said.

No health and safety complaints

have been made.

Woman charged

with assault

at hospital

• By Sophie Cornish

A WOMAN has been charged

following an assault on a security

staff member at Christchurch

Hospital.

Eve Marni Waddington, 32, was

charged with disorderly behaviour,

possession of a weapon and common

assault following the incident

on Sunday afternoon.

Police allege Waddington

showed an intention to commit an

offence involving the threat of violence

with three pairs of scissors.

The Canterbury District Health

Board confirmed the incident,

but would not say whether

Waddington was a patient or

visitor at the hospital.

Said CDHB chief people officer

Michael Frampton: “Security

personnel work extremely hard

to maintain a safe environment

many of those we care for are very

unwell, physically and/or psychologically.

Teams will continue

reviewing how we provide care,

Waddington is expected to

A REVIEW into the rules of

blood spinning within the

Harness Racing industry is

under way.

Harness Racing New Zealand

general manager corporate

services Liz Bishop said the rules

relating blood spinning are currently

being reviewed and are in

the process of being updated.

The process, also known under

acronyms such as ACS and PRP,

involves collecting blood from the

horse using a needle, processing

it in a laboratory and then reinjecting

it back into the horse.

HRNZ says the process is used

as a therapeutic treatment to aid

in the healing of horses’ injuries.

New updates to the rules will

be presented to clubs at the annual

conference at the end of

September.

Currently, the rules state the

process must be used only when

prescribed by a vet and can’t be

done within one clear day of

racing.

It comes after The Star reported

industry veteran David

Phillips had written a 18,000

word submission for the ‘Special

Review of Racing Integrity Bodies,’

as part of Minister of Racing

Winston Peters’ Messara Report.

In the submission, Mr Phillips

slams the process, saying it is

cruel and should be banned.

Blood spinning rules review

ALL STARS: Mark Purdon and his partner

Natalie Rasmussen own one of New

Zealand’s most successful stables, All Star

Stables and use blood spinning to treat

their horses injuries. They also run a business

using the process called Equine Blood

Solutions.

Previously, HRNZ chief executive

Peter Jensen said it obtains

expert veterinary advice when

setting the Rules and Regulations

of Harness Racing and that

it was used when deciding the

rules of blood spinning.

Animal welfare groups, PETA,

SPCA and SAFE have also raised

concerns about the process and

its effect on animal welfare.

SPCA scientific officer Alison

Vaughan, who groups all the

procedures under the term

‘regenerative therapies,’ said

there is a small number of studies

which appear to support the

benefits of the therapies for healing

injuries.

“However, further study (and

evidence) is required to determine

the efficacy and short and

long-term safety.”

A PETA spokeswoman said

blood spinning is a procedure

used in an attempt to force

horses to recover more quickly

from injury.

“Horses should be allowed sufficient

time to recover naturally

and fully,” she said.

In the submission, Mr Phillips

criticised one of the country’s

most successful stables,

Rolleston-based All Star Stables,

suggesting it uses the process to

enhance the performance of its

horses.

All Star Stables owners, Mark

Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen

own Equine Blood Solutions NZ

Ltd, which offers the treatment

to customers.

The pair strongly refuted

the claims, calling Mr Phillip’s

submission “just an opinion”

filled with “inaccuracies and

speculation.”

Committee

to focus on

transgender

health issues

• By Sophie Cornish

A COMMITTEE has been

established to improve health

services for the region’s

transgender community.

The Canterbury District Health

Board will fund it for an initial

two-year period.

The committee will aim to

improve relationships between the

trans community and health service

providers. It will also look at

issues around data collection and

access to appropriate psychologists.

A case study found that education

and care in Canterbury had

been significantly inconsistent for

trans people, with misconceptions

and gaps in information.

The study found it was common

for trans people to be turned away

and told that a health service was

not available when it was.

CDHB surgical teams have

agreed to provide services not

previously available through

the public health system,

including orchiectomy and breast

augmentation, mastectomy/

chest masculinisation. Currently,

patients in Canterbury are able to

access endocrinology (hormone)

services, counselling and

psychological support and mental

health assessments.

WE ARE WELL into winter and

it massively sucks. For me at least.

I used to be quite the fan of cold

weather and rain. Before Vittoria

was born it was the perfect excuse

to just grab a pizza and play video

games all day.

Now it’s like a prison sentence

with a guaranteed cranky and

potentially smelly cellmate.

The gloom of being trapped

inside over the last week or so has

been compounded by the fact that

the house is like something out of

a spanish flu documentary film.

coughs and colds but only two

of us are actually suffering. The

OPINION

news online at www.star.kiwi

Ratepayers should not be funding childcare

RATEPAYERS are

understandably venting their

fury over The Star’s revelations

last week that they could soon

be paying for city councillor and

community board members’

childcare.

We have some of the reader

reaction to that article below.

The mayor earns $194,000 a

year, city councillors $102,400

a year, the chairs of the seven

community boards earn up

to $49,160 and members’ pay

ranges from $9864 to $24,580,

depending on what board they

are on.

Many also have other income

streams, namely business

interests. I don’t have too many

issues with what they are paid.

Running a city the size

of Christchurch and in the

aftermath of the devastating

earthquakes is not an easy

job.

And if they get it wrong, or in

the eyes of voters don’t perform,

then every three years there is

From the

editor’s desk

Barry Clarke

opportunity for change.

But well remunerated

publicly elected councillors and

community board members do

not need ratepayers to subsidise

their childcare.

But courtesy of the

Government’s Remuneration

Authority, councils around

New Zealand can now vote on

adopting a new policy, which

will allow them to be reimbursed

for up to $6000 a child per year.

The Selwyn District Council

has already voted yes to it – and

councillors there are now seeing

a public backlash.

City councillors will vote

before September

on this issue. Let’s

hope it is not in

secret and the vote

of who was for and

against it is publicly

available.

And the argument

that childcare

subsidies are needed

to attract people

into local politics

is hogwash. Councillors and

community board members are

no different to anyone else who

has to juggle work, parenting

and child-minding, paid out of

their own pocket.

barry@starmedia.kiwi

Readers respond to last

week’s article about

how city councillors

and community board

members may get

ratepayer-subsidised

childcare

Inderjit Chadda – I am

writing to say that I am totally

against the idea of councillors

being paid a childcare allowance

at the cost of our rates. They get

paid pretty handsomely and

allowances such as childcare

are totally unnecessary. As it

is, the council rates are pretty

exorbitant, and continuously on

the rise.

Judith Inkster – I am

absolutely astounded us

ratepayers should be paying for

councillors’ childcare fees. I feel

they are paid more than enough

to provide their own childcare.

When my children were young,

we could barely afford to live,

let alone pay for childcare. We

didn’t have ratepayers to pay

for it so I worked at night when

my husband finished work so

he could then look after the

children. That’s what normal

people do when they can’t have

childcare.

Colin Aldridge – Ratepayer

money is not designed for

catering or personal childcare.

Look after the amenities for the

communities, as was originally

intended. If any elected members

feel entitled, then they should

wait until their children are of

age before applying for those

positions, or do what every other

person does, i.e pay it themselves

as there’s plenty of subsidies

available from Government.

Katrina Joseph – I am

absolutely dumbfounded that

people think this is okay for us

the ratepayers to pay for our

employees’ childcare. At the

end of the day, the ratepayers of

Christchurch are their bosses. I

do not agree we should be paying

councillors and/or community

board members to receive an

allowance of $6000 to go toward

childcare. We pay enough in

rates already and for Cr Deon

Swiggs to say he did not expect

the policy to lead to a rates

increase if this goes ahead is

crazy. Regardless of whether it’s a

rates increase or “absorbed from

other funds”, the money still

comes from the ratepayer. For my

many, many thousands of dollars

I pay in rates, I receive very little

in return. I would protest if this

goes ahead. They need to learn

how to manage and budget like

the rest of us.

Cyril Smith – My answer

is ‘no way’. Our rates just keep

going up and up. When will it

stop? Once The People’s Choice

candidates, who in my mind are

flippant with our money, are no

longer the dominant party in

council, we will then hopefully

have financial accountability.

Lily Hall – I don’t usually

comment on such things, but

considering the page before this

article talked about the crazy

high of the council chief’s salary,

I find this infuriating. Having a

wee girl of my own, my partner

and I had to seriously consider

weighing up going back to

part-time work and paying for

childcare. We consider ourselves

fortunate with my partner having

a well-paid job, but for these

councillors to receive many other

benefits within their position and

then think it’s okay to reimburse

childcare, when people are

struggling on minimum wage,

seems ridiculous. The worst

part is Cr Swiggs saying it’ll

come from other funds, like the

“catering budget”. Wow. Just

wow. They really need to sit

down and think about how this

looks from a public perception.

Not many positions offer

childcare reimbursements, let

alone for those in a position with

a high salary bracket.

Dawn Martin – What else

do they want? They get paid well

for what they do. Paid more than

a low paid worker who has to

pay for childcare. This council

is utterly useless, with a useless

mayor. Come on voters, they pay

themselves very well from our

hard-earned wages that are not

the living wage. Next they will

all want new houses and luxury

vehicles. Come on voters, get rid

of all Lianne’s cronies, along with

her.

Iain McDonald – No.

They should not be reimbursed.

The more I hear/read about

councillors and board members

it seems to be that they think

they are extremely unique and

special people and are entitled to

all sorts of benefits. Who else gets

reimbursed for childcare? Most

people I know have to pay for

their own.

Douglas Meyer –

Disgusting! Snout’s in the trough.

Dorothy Peyper –

Councillors earn enough pay,

they should pay their own

childcare costs, all other working

people do. This is another way to

increase their pay. Thank you for

the continued reporting on how

the councillors vote.

Jan Koortse – The

suggestion that councillors

may get childcare paid for is

absolutely shameful. We have

people in our community that

can hardly afford to pay for their

electricity, not to mention the

ever-increasing rates, and to

top it off, the new city council

chief executive’s pay packet.

Councillors must be aware that

they are elected to serve in the

best interests of the people and

should not feel entitled to spend

our money the way they wish.

We will vote with our feet.

Ruth McMorran – Why

should ratepayers like myself pay

for childcare for people who earn

a very generous salary? As for Cr

Swiggs’ comments like it would

be well supported (yes, by those

who would benefit), it would take

away the barrier for people with

families (really), and he did not

expect the policy to lead to a rates

increase (I would be outraged if it

did, good grief). I agree with him

re the catering budget (absolute

nonsense, there is no need for

that). I totally agree with Cr

Aaron Keown – councillors are

paid well enough to pay for there

own childcare. I currently work

with many mums who receive

minimum wage and do not have

the luxury of being able to afford

any childcare. Many would like

to work more hours for their

families but can’t due to having

to pick children up. Absolutely

very unfair. Outraged!

Michael J Brathwaite – It

seems to me that councillors who

think their childcare should be

paid from out of our rates are

displaying the same excessive

sense of entitlement as those

council employees who used

to buy expensive lattes with

ratepayer-funded credit cards

because they didn’t like the

coffee served at their offices.

Ratepayers on the minimum

wage have to pay for their own

childcare, and it is asking too

much to expect them to also

pay for that of councillors who

are being paid nearly $2000 a

week. While community board

members aren’t paid as much as

councillors, I doubt that they too

would experience any hardship

paying for their own childcare.

Sandra Shaw – I absolutely

object to the suggestion of

councillors and community

board members having their

childcare paid for. Outrageous

suggestion actually. I note their

salaries, and if they can’t pay

for their childcare out of those

rather generous amounts, maybe

they should look elsewhere. How

does this suggestion go down

with Christchurch people? Very

badly I suggest. We’re scraping

and scrimping to pay the ever

increasing rates, which are on a

never-ending rise. So to hear this

suggestion really insults me.

What triggered Dawn’s exit?

OPINION 17

The coming week

in our history

The $495,000 pay packet

of the city council’s newlyappointed

chief executive

Dawn Baxendale, of

Engalnd, has sparked

debate. Birmingham

Live website people

and politics editor Jane

Haynes wrote this piece

in the aftermath of the

announcement

WHEN DAWN Baxendale took

up the helm of Birmingham City

Council last April, she spoke

warmly of her excitement over

the challenge of leading the city

out of a tumultuous period of

instability and into a brighter

future.

Birmingham was in the midst

of a financial crisis, had lost a

chief executive and two council

leaders in quick succession and

experienced a reputationally

disastrous bin strike.

What it needed was a steady

hand and someone with the vision

and long-term commitment

to realise the city’s incredible

potential.

Ms Baxendale, with over 25

years public sector experience

under her belt and a glowing

recommendation from Southampton

City Council, was viewed

as the best person to take us on a

‘journey of improvement.’

She spoke of needing 10 years

to reach journey’s end. “It’s not

going to be easy,” she said.

So it has proved – and just over

a year (and $NZ495,000) later,

she’s off.

Ms Baxendale has announced

she is swapping the bright lights

of Brum for chilled-out Christchurch

on New Zealand’s South

Island, fulfilling a dream for

her and her family to live down

under.

That she’s managed to negotiate

a huge pay rise too – from

£214,000 a year in Birmingham

($NZ397,000) to a reported

£267,000 ($NZ495,000) to run

Christchurch City Council – adds

to the sense that this was just too

good a chance to turn down.

And yet . . . what a blow it must

be for those who appointed her

NEW COUNCIL BOSS: Chief executive Dawn Baxendale will

pick up a $495,000 salary.

in the first place, in the not unreasonable

expectation that she

would be around for some years.

Council leader Ian Ward paid

tribute to her brief tenure: “When

she joined the council 16 months

ago we were entering a new phase

in our improvement journey

and, thanks in no small part to

Dawn’s determination and tenacity,

we have made significant

steps forward.”

The permanent secretary at

the Ministry of Housing, Local

Government and Communities,

Melanie Dawes, said she has

“much to be proud of and will

depart with many thanks from

me and my colleagues.”

Leader of the Conservative

Group Cr Robert Alden added it

was “very sad news” and that she

had made “a huge impact,”

Ms Baxendale was Birmingham’s

highest paid chief executive

ever – on top of her salary

she also benefited from a £35,000

($NZ65,000) annual pension contribution

and a relocation fee of

close to £5000 ($NZ9000).

Those salary rewards were

given and taken in good faith,

but as we all know circumstances

and ambitions can change rapidly,

especially when you’ve got

a family to think of. One year

you’re convinced your future

lies in Brum for the foreseeable,

the next the lure of a new life

thousands of miles away becomes

irresistible.

One trigger for seeking out this

new life now might have been

the new year bin dispute, which

saw rubbish piled up again on

dirty city streets; another could

have been an unprecedented

third financial warning issued by

auditors concerned about the city

council’s ability to manage risk.

Then came a damning final report

by the Government-appointed

improvement panel, which

ruled progress over the past year

had not been good enough.

The report praised Ms Baxendale’s

personal contribution, saying

she was “rapidly developing

improved relationships with local

partners” and “appropriately

building on the platforms put in

place by the interim chief executive

who preceded her.”

The panel also praised her

‘hands-on’ approach and clearer

direction.

But ultimately they ruled the

council was not yet fit to be left to

its own devices.

Communities secretary James

Brokenshire was told the city still

needed hands-on expert support

– as a result, the council has now

announced it is bringing in ‘external

advisers’ as non-executive

members of a new strategic

programme board to assist the

management team.

In spite of putting out its own

press release hailing this exciting

new way of doing things, the

council has since refused to say

if it has appointed any advisers

yet, who they are, how they were

recruited, where the posts were

advertised, how much they will

be paid, what powers they will

have and where they sit in the

corporate hierarchy. We’ve no

idea even if the board they will sit

on will meet behind closed doors

or in the open, or its deliberations

publicised.

How this new style of managing

council affairs has gone down

with Ms Baxendale – or whether

it was her idea – is not known. To

date, our requests for an interview

have not borne fruit.

In the meantime, Ms

Baxendale remains the

welcoming face on the council’s

own management vacancies page.

She tells jobseekers:

“You need to be excited by the

opportunity and you need to

understand that you are coming

in at the beginning of a journey

and it is going to be hard, hard

work . . . if you are excited by one

of our opportunities and want to

make a positive difference every

day to the lives of the people who

live and work in Birmingham,

please apply for one of these roles

and be part of our team.”

Let’s hope a chief executive

who loves Brum enough to stick

around responds to her appeal.

July 25, 1981 – Anti-tour

demonstrators invaded

Hamilton’s Rugby Park, forcing

the abandonment of the

Springboks–Waikato match.

Rugby Park was packed for

the first Saturday game of the

controversial tour. The pitch

was invaded by hundreds of

protestors.

July 26, 1863 – About

25 gold miners died on the

Arrow diggings, north-east of

Queenstown, in a series of flash

floods and slips caused by 24

hours of heavy rain. It was the

worst day of a brutal winter

during which an estimated

100 miners were drowned,

buried by mudslides or died of

exposure.

July 27, 1963 – Aviation

figure in the development

of commercial aviation in

this country, died. Among his

many achievements were taking

New Zealand’s first aerial photographs

in 1912 and delivering

its first official airmail in 1919.

July 28, 1893 – A huge

women was presented to Parliament.

The Women’s Christian

Temperance Union and other

organisations had campaigned

for women’s right to vote since

July 29, 1981 – Kiri Te

Kanawa took centre stage at the

highly anticipated wedding of

Prince Charles to Lady Diana

Spencer at St Paul’s Cathedral,

London. Te Kanawa sang Let

the bright Seraphim from Handel’s

Samson while the bride

and groom signed the register.

July 30, 1979 – Carless days

were introduced to combat the

second ‘oil shock’ (petrol shortage)

of the 1970s. They did little

to reduce consumption and

were scrapped in May 1980.

July 31, 1976 – Following in

the footsteps of Jack Lovelock

and Peter Snell, John Walker

won gold in the Olympic 1500m

at Montreal. African nations

COMMUNITY

INFLUENCER

Foot health is of major importance to a person’s overall

wellbeing. Feet are the foundation upon which the body operates

and are easily taken for granted until the pain or soreness

becomes uncomfortable.

Howard Nicholas, a podiatrist at Footprints in Barrington is a

community advocate teaching and sharing the importance of

taking care of your feet.

He specializes in sports injuries, biomechanics and orthotic

manufacture and has an area of interest in Postsurgical orthoses

and children’s gait problems.

BACKGROUND

I’ve been interested in foot care for as long as I can remember

and have worked as a podiatrist for more than 20 years. Feet

and the important role they play in a person’s life has always

interested me. Being active in sports as well as a coach, I see the

results of physical exertion on the feet and want to help with

education and results in helping people with the foot care and

concerns.

FOOT CARE

Feet are a biomechanical marvel, transporting each of us over

150,000 km in our lifetime. Little wonder, many people develop

a foot problem at some stage. Feet are often overlooked when

starting any new activity - sports or work related. Many people

simply don’t consider their feet when they have so much else

going on in a busy life. Yet our feet transport us around our daily

activities and until a problem develops, many choose to ignore

them or worse, hide them!

MOST COMMON FOOT ISSUE

A foot problem affecting young and old alike is fungus. It’s not

a party topic and many will choose to ignore it or just keep their

feet hidden away, but feet contain about 250,000 sweat glands,

which produce around 600mLs of perspiration every day. Given

most feet are enclosed in a warm, dark shoe, this provides a

perfect environment for foot fungus to grow and thrive.

PHENOMENAL RESULTS

Our clinic is excited with the Lunula Laser technology we now

offer. After watching amazing results from overseas trials, I

brought the Lunula Laser to Christchurch about 8 months ago

and our patients are experiencing results.

Lunula Laser is a low level laser, designed to target both the

fungus in the nail and improve nail health. Previous lasers have

been hot, with an uncomfortable sensation and potentially

dangerous smoke plumes.

Lunula is a painless, cold laser, and unlike some oral fungal

medications, has no known side effects.

TOLERANCE OF OTHERS

IS AN ART

Sometimes you find yourself in a situation

where its uncomfortable or even hard to

tolerate someone’s words or actions. The

world is now a melting pot with all cultures

and diversities, gender preferences and

family dynamics interacting with each other.

As we each of us express our own personal

preferences and how we look at life, with

our likes and dislikes, we are bound to have

people cross our path, who we don’t agree

with the outlook on life.

At times like these, tolerating others is

consciously trying to understand where

each person is coming from and avoid

turning the situation into a personal battle.

The best way to develop a more tolerant

outlook is by learning about different

people and their cultures and developing

confidence in yourself and coming to

appreciate the differences in life.

10 HELPFUL TIPS FOR

MORE TOLERANCE

1. Try to empathise

2. Ask for an explanation

3. Ignore your differences

4. Use “I” statements rather than “you”

statements

5. Look for the resolution in the conflict

6. Value difference

7. Accept Uncertainty

8. Learn about other people and cultures

9. Analyse your intolerant feelings

10 Foster your own self-esteem

NZ: THE WORST IN THE

DEVELOPED WORLD

FOR INACTIVITY

New UK research has found that even people

who have been quite inactive much of their

life will benefit from exercise when they are

middle age or older.

A Cambridge University team of researchers

examined the relationship between trends

in physical activity levels over time and

mortality risk among adults in middle age

and older.

ExerciseNZ chief executive Richard Beddie

says many Kiwis will be shocked to learn that

New Zealand is the 13th worst in the world

for physical inactivity and the worst in the

developed world. He says it is just appalling.

“Exercise is the #1 sport in New Zealand

with more than half a million participants

and growing research confirming the health

benefits of activity for all Kiwis. But we

should be much better than that in terms of

numbers.

“We have a massive crisis in New Zealand in

terms of people’s inactivity. We urgently need

a co-ordinated approach to solve it involving

government, local authorities, schools and

100%

CAPITAL gAIN

TO THE RESIDENT

workplaces so we can increase the quality

and length of life of all New Zealanders

and reduce the burden on the public health

system,” Beddie says.

The exercise industry is ready and willing

to do its part and we want to present to a

government select committee on how to

address the issue. We need action and we

need it now,” Beddie says.

Exercise can lower the risk of cardiovascular

disease, cancer, diabetes and increase life

expectancy, as countless research studies

have shown.

The UK academic research looked at the

effects that exercise in middle and older age

have on the risk of premature death and

lifespan. So, no matter when anyone starts to

exercise in life, they can still reap the benefits.

Beddie agrees it is not too late for the almost

50 percent of New Zealanders that don’t do

enough physical activity to earn the health

benefits of exercise.

“World Health Organisation guidelines

say people should exercise 150 minutes of

$1,000 fULLY

REfUNDAbLE

DEPOSIT

movement a week, or 30 minutes five times

a week or 90 minutes of moderate to intense

activity a week.

The Cambridge research showed that even

those that have been inactive for much of

their lives will make significant health gains

in life expectancy and quality of life if they

start moving more regularly.

The UK team examined how changes in

exercise levels over time affect a person’s

risk of dying from any cause, as well as

dying from specific conditions — such as

cardiovascular disease.”

The researchers found out how much

exercise older adults need in order to boost

their reasoning skills and their brains’

processing speed.

Also, the results suggested that even if

someone decided to exercise after being

physically inactive, the benefits for longevity

would still be significant. For further

LAW

LIVING

LIFE

Security, freedom from home maintenance

worries, support, companionship and on-site

healthcare are just some of the reasons why

you might be contemplating the move to a

Retirement Village. But the implications of

buying in a Retirement Village are varied and

often seem quite complex.

Retirement Villages typically utilise devices

called Occupation Right Agreements (ORA).

These do not transfer ownership, as such,

but rather, they confer a licence to occupy a

certain unit at the Village until a given event.

Under an ORA, you make an initial payment

for entry into a Retirement Village, often

referred to as the purchase price of the ORA.

From this initial capital payment the Village

will apply a formula for calculating a ‘deferred

management fee’ or ‘village contribution’ that

is deducted from the entry payment when

you end the ORA. This exit fee is usually

between 20% to 30% of your entry payment

and accrues between 2 to 5 years from your

entry date. Be aware that often the balance of

the entry payment will not be repayable on

termination but rather, when the owner

finds a new resident for the unit.

There are three main additional costs

you should consider and compare when

you are looking at Villages. In addition

to the exit fee, there will be a weekly fee

payable to the village owner to cover

the running costs of the village. Some

Villages will fix this fee from the date of

your ORA, others will increase the fee tied to

the consumer price index or the increase in

the National Super rate, and others to account

for the increased cost of services each year.

There is usually another weekly service fee

based on the extra services you require or

opt for. There may also be other costs and

you should carefully view all the Village

documentation before you commit to avoid

any surprises once you’ve settled in.

While it is by far the most common approach,

not all Retirement Villages use the ORA

model. Some use different types of ownership

structures such as unit titles and cross lease

titles. It is important to be informed about

the ownership model of any Village you are

considering, and to get the appropriate legal

and financial advice.

The decision to move into a Retirement

Village is not one you should rush. Think

about the things that are “must haves” for

you and pick a Village that enables you to

achieve these goals. Look at different Villages

and speak to the residents if possible, to

ensure that the Village ticks all your boxes

and involve your family and friends in your

decision making process. At Harmans we

have experience dealing with purchasing in a

Retirement Village. Give Phillipa Shaw a call

on 03 352 2293 to arrange an appointment to

discuss your situation.

COPING WITH CHANGE

Change comes in many forms but leaving

behind what we know and are used to is

almost always stressful, even if we choose the

change ourselves.

Coping strategies generally fall into two

categories: “escape” and “control.” Most

people use a mixture of both at various points

in their response to change, but control

strategies are the ones with the greatest longterm

benefits. We tend to react to change in

four main stages: shock, emotional responses,

coming to terms, and acceptance.

People are more likely to progress through

these stages successfully if they acknowledge

their feelings, explore the facts, aim to remain

positive, and draw on support networks,

while always giving themselves time to adapt.

Studies have shown that people cope with

change, of whatever kind, in two ways:

“escape coping” or “control coping.”

Escape coping is based on avoidance. You

take specific actions to help you to avoid the

difficulties of change. For instance, you might

deliberately miss an event or appointment

because of the discomfort.

Control coping, on the other hand, is positive

and proactive. You refuse to behave like a

“victim” of change. Instead, you manage your

feelings, get support, and then do whatever

you can to be part of the change.

In reality, most of us respond to major

change with a mixture of escape and control

coping. But control coping is generally the

better option to choose, as it is impossible

to avoid the reality of change for long

without becoming exhausted or effecting

relationships.

STAGES OF REACTING

TO CHANGE

Change can be difficult because it can

challenge how we think, the quality of our

relationships, and even our physical security

or sense of identity. The challenge of change is

usually reacted to in four stages:

1. Shock and disorientation.

2. Anger and other emotional responses.

3. Coming to terms with the new situation.

4. Acceptance and moving forward.

Our progression through these stages is rarely

simple or linear. We might get stuck in one

stage or advance quickly and then slip back.

And there is often no clear-cut, decisive move

from one stage to another. Shock can shade

gradually into anger, for example, with no

obvious break between the two.

Stage 1: Shock and disorientation

Experiencing sudden or big change can feel

like a physical blow. In the initial stage of

coping, you’re likely to feel confused and

uncertain. Your first priority should be to seek

reliable information and to make sense of the

situation.

Stage 2: Anger and other emotional

responses

Initial disorientation at the prospect of

change usually gives way to a wave of

strong emotions. Even if the change in your

circumstances is something that you’ve

instigated, you may find yourself swinging

between optimism and pessimism. This is

quite natural, and it’s a normal step on the

way to resolving your situation.

It’s important to avoid suppressing your

emotions, so acknowledge the way that you

feel, and assess what you can express openly

and what you should keep to yourself.

Stage 3: Coming to terms with the new

situation

During this stage, your focus will likely

start to shift away from what you’ve lost and

toward what’s new. This process may be slow,

and you might be reluctant to acknowledge

it, but it’s an essential part of coping with

change.

Start to explore more deeply what the change

means. Your instinct may be to behave

resentfully and not to cooperate, but this will

likely do yourself and others harm. So, search

for and emphasize the positive aspects of

your developing situation. At the same time,

be patient , as coming to terms with change is

a gradual process.

Warning:

It’s vital to avoid pretending everything’s OK

if it’s not. So, if you find yourself regressing

to Stage 2, give yourself time to recover.

Affirmations would be helpful to raise your

confidence and ask for help from friends or a

mentor.

Stage 4: Acceptance and moving forward

This is the stage where you fully accept your

changed circumstances.

Acceptance doesn’t mean giving up entirely

on your former situation. You’ll have valuable

memories, skills and relationships to carry

forward, however, you are comfortable with

moving on.

THE SPECTACULAR

E CLASS COUPE

11

LIVING

LIFE

BY ROSS KIDDIE

MOTORING

My thoughts are that if you are paying over $180k

for a new car you’d at least expect it to look the

part.

That is certainly what Mercedes-Benz has done

with its E Class coupe line-up. Well, the entire E

Class series looks pretty spectacular, it arrives here

in sedan, coupe and convertible, and each has

presence, its size, shape and detailing combine to

give an overwhelming sense of purpose.

The latest generation E Class has been around since

2016 and I’ve driven three variants, culminating in

this evaluation, the E53 AMG coupe.

I’m very enthusiastic about the turbocharged V8

engine that powers many models in the Mercedes-

Benz AMG performance range, that generally has

the nomenclature 63, and at around $200k the

sedan would probably be my pick.

However, the E53 coupe is not disgraced as it, too,

is a true performance vehicle. Under the bonnet

sits a twin-turbocharged V6 engine of 2999cc. That

engine is also carried across the Mercedes-Benz

range with varying outputs and in each case has

remarkable sound through the exhaust. In the E53

that sound is still there, it barks and spits during

gear shifts both up and down. The constant rumble

out the pipes can’t quite be heard to the same extent

as it is in the soft-top, but the coupe definitely has

an audible presence. I simply love it, I was forever

blipping the throttle and forcing shifts just to hear

the boom and crackle.

In terms of power outputs, Mercedes-Benz claims

320kW and 520Nm. If you add to that the constant

turbocharged boost you know you are in for some

excitement when the roads allow a bit of freedom.

Mercedes-Benz also claims a 4.4sec standstill to

100km/h time, and by my stopwatch it will lunge

through a highway overtake in just under 4sec

(80-120km/h). These are impressive times, but fit

well with the sporty nature of the coupe, it has the

performance to match its powerful looks.

Yet, the big coupe is also docile when the roads

don’t allow for performance, it will dawdle the

city streets without taxing the driver, indeed the

entire driving experience is one of comfort and

relaxation. So competent is it at speed that the

driver doesn’t need to work hard to maintain

momentum, everything the E53 does, it does with

ease.

On a stormy early winter weekend I took the

evaluation car to Windwhistle before returning to

the city through Hororata and Dunsandel. I had

intended to go further west towards Lake Coleridge

power station, but the roads were tricky with snow

piled to the sides and ice a major threat. However,

I felt at ease in the E53, it is majorly competent

because drive is channelled through a nine-speed

automatic transmission to all four wheels.

On the greasy wet roads it was great to have the

reassurance 4WD offers, grip is high, and even

though there was a lot of water under the tyres

they never felt like they would lose traction. What’s

more the driveline feels biased towards the rear,

promoting a sporty feeling, powering out of a

corner lends to the sensation that oversteer would

be available, of course, you can’t break traction

thanks to the trick control systems, but the car does

provide all of the feel-good factors that a dynamic

suspension and driveline offer.

There are also suspension settings the driver can

dial in for him/herself. That’s the beauty of an air

suspension set-up, the ride is glorious, yet can be

firmed or softened at will. If you haven’t driven a

car which utilises air underneath, then I suggest

you give it a try, it is the ideal compromise for

comfort and handling, the cushioning effect is

simply amazing.

In AMG form the E53 is fully specced with all of

the upmarket and luxury kit you’d expect for a car

of this price, they are all laid out in the traditional

Mercedes-Benz style, the layout of the controls

is intuitive once familiar. It also has the tweaks

which provide the performance factor, and that is

where the AMG badging comes in, it adds to the

dynamics of both performance and looks.

As mentioned, if I was an E Class buyer, I’d pay the

extra $20k for sedan’s V8 power and its five seats

(as opposed to four seats in the coupe). However,

don’t be misled, the E53 and its V6 engine

represents true performance and has the benefits

of that beautiful rear quarter which is a styling

masterclass. I’m a big coupe fan, and I particularly

enjoyed my time in the evaluation car, the grace

with which it travels and the overall design is

something to surely treasure.

A University of Canterbury biotechnologist’s

biodegradable coating can help achieve food

security in an environmentally friendly and

consumer-conscious way.

Biotechnology expert Associate Professor

David Leung, is working on a nontoxic,

biodegradable coating to protect edible plants

against diseases, pests and environmental

hazards, including the effects of climate

change.

The research could prove vital in protecting

plant food without compromising consumer

health. Because the coating is biodegradable,

FOOD SECURITY

ANSWER

it would also provide an environmentally

sustainable solution and avoid the negative

impacts of agrochemicals commonly used to

protect plants.

In addition to being eco-friendly, the coating

is nontoxic, which Associate Professor

Leung says is key to protecting the people

consuming the end product.

“It’s not just the quantity of food that we

care about; it is also about producing safe

food that doesn’t harm the surrounding

environment.”

Non-degradable pesticides, herbicides

and biocides can damage the surrounding

environment by contaminating soil, water,

turf and other vegetation. Although they are

effective in killing insects, they can be toxic to

a host of other organisms, including humans.

Additionally, a large amount of food around

the world is wasted due to improper storage,

which is problem the biodegradable coating

has the potential to address. According to

the Food and Agriculture Organization of

the United Nations, “roughly one third of

the food produced in the world for human

consumption every year – approximately 1.3

billion tonnes – gets lost or wasted”.

THEATRE/ARTS 33

Puppets come to life on river terrace

THE TERRACE by the Avon

River will get some unlikely

visitors this week when the

Christchurch Arts Festival kicks

off.

If you’re dining at any one of

the hospitality establishments

along The Terrace, expect the

unexpected on Friday and

Saturday.

A Winter’s Tale will open the

festival, and bring Shakespeare

to life in a contemporary and

visual spectacle along the banks

of the Avon River.

Marian McCurdy, of Free

Theatre, said it is an exciting

collaborative project for the

company, which is now in its

40th year.

“We have a long history of

collaborating with artists and

that’s exactly what this opening

event will be.”

The team has been working

with 28 National Academy of

Singing and Dramatic Art actors,

eight puppeteers, including

performers from Circotica

as well as the Christchurch

Circus Centre, and local bands

and musicians to bring the

Shakespearean spectacle to life.

There will be masked

performers, interweaving

down the river and immersing

themselves into the audience to

interact with people, alongside

puppets, film projections and

music,” said McCurdy.

The large-scale puppets are

an extension of a performance

Free Theatre did in 2013 called

Canterbury Tales.

“We are including puppets this

time that are very interactive,

mobile and we can immerse

them among the crowds.”

The puppets will be acting out

scenes from the Shakespearian

plays, with a Romeo and Juliet

scene set to unfold from the

balcony of one of The Terrace hot

spots.

There will be a lot of things

working together to create a

carnivalesque atmosphere,” said

McCurdy.

Six bands will play across two

sound stages to add another

element to the piece.

There is a really diverse

group of musicians, from Mark

Vanilau to Dark Matter . . . then

we’re also collaborating with

the UC School of Music and

younger bands.”

The various elements have

been chosen to create an

“unusual and new” take on

Shakespeare, rather than

a traditional performance

audiences might expect, said

McCurdy.

“We always like to explore new

things and challenge ourselves

with new ways of doing things,

so this has provided us with a

really exciting opportunity,” she

said.

With 2019 marking the 40th

anniversary of Free Theatre,

the company is excited to be

celebrating this by showcasing

its unique work to the city –

alongside the city’s string of local

talent at the Christchurch Arts

Festival.

Showcasing local talent and

celebrating uniqueness is what

McCurdy is passionate about.

She says it is not something we

do enough of.

“We’ve grown up in this

culture where, as New

Zealanders, we feel like anything

from overseas is somehow

more important or better than

anything we’re actually doing

here. It’s a cultural shift that has

taken decades to happen and it’s

slowly changing,” McCurdy said.

The Christchurch Arts

Festival runs from July

26 to August 3. The full

programme and tickets

are available online at

artsfestival.co.nz.

•A Winter’s Tale is a

free event and runs from

6-9pm both nights (with

an opening festival powhiri

on the opening night).

There’s a new way to report non-emergencies to Police.

Use 105.police.govt.nz if you’ve had something stolen, your property

has been intentionally damaged or have lost property to report. You can

also get updates here on a Police report you’ve already made, or add

GARDENING ADVICE

Today’s winning question came

from Fleur. Congratulations!

Q

If I add mulch to my garden,

should I assist it and dig it in as

it rots down or leave it alone to

mix in on its own? For example

pea straw.

A

WIN a Daltons Fruit Tree and Planting Pack!

This is an excellent question concerning mulch,

and the use of it depends on what materials you

are mulching with. Placed on the soil surface,

mulch helps prevent weed growth, aids with

water retention and eventually breaks down to

improve organic matter in the soil.

With pea straw, we would strongly recommend using it only

as a surface mulch (which will eventually break down) as

opposed to mixing it in as a soil additive.

You can remove the mulch, and dig in Daltons Garden

Time Compost to improve the soil in vegetable gardens

or when preparing sites for new plantings, then reapply the

mulch (like crushed bark or pea straw etc) to the soil surface

to break down naturally.

At this time of the year, there is an enormous amount of

leaves from deciduous trees, these (especially oak leaves),

can be used as a mulch and by early summer, will have

broken down, improving your soil very quickly.

Products to try Daltons Garden Time

Landscape Bark and other mulch products.

For growing advice and information on

products visit www.daltons.co.nz

Planting during early winter ensures your fruit trees have enough time to establish good root

systems before hot summer months. Select varieties that will grow and fruit the best in your

climate. Plant in a warm, sheltered, sunny spot in the garden with well-drained soil. If space

is an issue, dwarf varieties are compact and still produce full-sized fruit.

Valued at $80, each pack includes 2 x Garden Time Compost, Daltons Premium

Pretty hatchback key

part of Mazda3 range

THERE’S NO sign of the

Mazda Motor Corporation

running out of puff.

By its own admission,

the company was hit hard

financially through floods

which forced three months

of cutbacks at its Hiroshima

factories last year. However,

since getting back on track,

Mazda has pumped out

a succession of desirable,

high quality models.

Those cars are also state

of the art, and designed for

what current buyers are

looking for. That statement

could be contradictory

given the new Mazda3

has been launched in a

diminishing market, the

sedan/hatchback sector has

lost favour against sport

utility vehicles.

However, I’m of the

belief that there’s still plenty

of interest in traditional

sedans, and that is what

I’d be looking for if I was

in a position to buy a new

vehicle.

The new Mazda3 lands

in hatchback and sedan

body styles, they are each

priced the same, starting

at $36,595 and ending at

$48,795. There are two

engine options along the

way – 2-litre or 2.5-litre –

each paired to a traditional

six-speed automatic

transmission.

This evaluation focuses

on the entry-level GSX

2-litre hatchback, and I’d

be looking no further, it

certainly appeals to me, and

at around $36k has to be

the bargain of the series.

You wouldn’t be

disappointed with the

level of specification, it

gets a full suite of safety

technologies, and items for

comfort and convenience

are in abundance. Sure,

the cloth trim doesn’t

have the appeal of leather,

but for those living in

Christchurch cloth is by far

the more preferable, there’s

no icy feeling jumping into

the car on a frosty morning.

In terms of specification,

it gets satellite navigation,

keyless entry and ignition,

radar cruise control/speed

limiter, and a host of other

features that Mazda has

refined and incorporated

into all of its models in

recent years. That’s a

tempting package and, as

regular readers will recall,

I’ve often remarked on

the build quality and high

grade trim materials that

are used on all Mazda

product today.

As mentioned, the base

model GSX gets a 1998cc

power plant, it’s a naturallyaspirated

unit, what I

mean is that it doesn’t

have a turbocharger like

MAZDA3 GSX HATCHBACK: Strong line-up in

diminishing market.

some other vehicles in the

Mazda line-up. That’s no

detraction, this engine

is part of the SkyActive

range of Mazda drivelines,

highlighted by good power

outputs in relation to

efficiency. The key figures

are 114kW and 200Nm, it

will also return a combined

cycle fuel usage average

of 6.2-litres per 100km

(45mpg).

• Price – Mazda3 GSX

hatchback, $36,595

• Dimensions –

Length, 4460mm;

width, 1795mm;

height, 1435mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

front-wheel-drive,

1998cc, 114kW,

200Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9sec

• Fuel usage –

6.2l/100km

These are Mazda’s claims,

and I wouldn’t dispute them.

On my evaluation drive

the fuel usage readout was

constantly listing around

7.8l/100km (36mpg), with

an instantaneous figure of

6l/100km (47mpg) on offer

with the engine turning over

at 1800rpm at 100km/h.

I took the evaluation

car through the twists and

turns of the roads which

run parallel to the Selwyn

River, and I can report

it has beautiful handling

balance and high levels of

comfort.

The GSX rides on tyres

far from low in profile. At

205/60 x 16in they sit tall

on the wheel, and won’t

give you the handling

dynamics of the low profile

rubber fitted to high-grade

variants.

However, what they do

give is amazing ride quality,

and the handling is far

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

from compromised.

Steerage is still direct, and

with a low centre of gravity

(body height just 1435mm)

there is control within the

suspension and relative

freedom. I say that because

Mazda has introduced a

new rear suspension into

the 3 range.

It came as a bit of a

surprise to learn the old

fully-independent system

has been dropped in favour

of a torsion beam type. I

would have considered that

was a backward step, but

Mazda has told me that

they have every confidence

in the new design.

In effect, it does work

confidently, and if technical

details don’t bother you

in a purchase then you

are never going to tell the

difference.

The balance between

power and handling is

manufactured so that if

you want to have a spirited

drive the 2-litre engine

performs admirably, there

is plenty of power on tap,

and it has a complete

willingness through the

entire rev band.

If you wish for a spirited

drive there is a sport mode

available at the driver’s

discretion, it livens the

engine markedly, but I was

more interested in gleaning

good fuel use stats so I used

it only for a short period

just for evaluation purposes

only. For the record, the

Mazda3 in this form will

scamper to 100km/h in a

respectable 9sec.

As much as I enjoyed

the bold design of the

hatchback – the rear quarter

is simply stunning – I’d be in

the sedan market.

However, I’m well aware

that buyers like sport utility

vehicles, but it’s good to see

traditional models are still

in the marketplace, I hope

that Mazda is rewarded

through solid sales.

THE LYTTELTON, Suburbs

and Otautahi rugby clubs face

an uncertain future, with a

decision next month set to

decide whether or not their

top senior sides will compete

in the metro premier reserve

competition.

All three clubs currently have

a side in the premier reserve

competition.

However, a decision made by

the Canterbury Rugby Football

Union three years ago means

teams wanting to compete in

the premier reserve grade must

also have a team competing in

the premier competition. The

decision means the clubs’ top

sides will be forced to drop

down to division three next

year.

At the weekend, Lyttelton

finished the premier reserve

round-robin in top spot, but

AS CANTABRIANS and Kiwis,

we’ve got to be among the most

boring fans in the world when it

comes to creating atmosphere at

sporting events.

Over the weekend, we hosted

the National Basketball League

finals for the first time in 20

years.

The stage was set with the

Canterbury Rams tied up against

Hawkes Bay going into the final

quarter, and for the most part,

we went silent and inadvertently

said who gives a stuff about

home court advantage.

As a kid, I remember the few

thousand Highlanders fans who

made the four-and-a-half-hour

drive north to make themselves

that may not be good enough to

see them eligible to play in the

competition next year.

Lyttelton, along with Suburbs

and Otautahi, are challenging

the decision.

Lyttelton president Clinton

Norris is confident the decision

will be overturned at a meeting

between the CRFU, the metro

rugby committee and the clubs

on August 7.

There is a mutual feeling

between the three clubs that if

they are not able to field sides

in the premier reserve grade

next year, it will result in players

leaving the sport altogether.

“That would kill our club.

There’s just no way we could

hold onto players or even

recruit, because players want to

play in the grade they feel they’re

competitive in,” said Norris.

“Some of our players would

drop out of the sport and be

lost to rugby . . . they just love

heard at Lancaster Park.

This was something you

accepted, and we rallied together

to make sure they were drowned

out for the majority of the game.

However, it’s a dark day

when half a dozen Hawkes Bay

fans manage to compete with

what was a typically docile

Canterbury crowd which have

become too afraid to turn feral

in support of their province.

the culture we have, we’re like

a country club in the town

competition.”

It is understood the change

was originally set to come into

place in 2017, but was delayed

until this year to allow the clubs

to try and establish a side in

both the premier and premier

reserve competitions.

There seems to be a lot of

discussion around it at the

moment and it may not be the

big positive thing they thought

it was going to be when the

original decision was made,”

said Suburbs president Jayson

McRoberts.

Meanwhile Otautahi president

Albert Hoera is hoping

“common sense will prevail” at

next month’s meeting.

“We’re already losing players

to the sport and a number of

the bigger clubs have even been

forced to default their reserve

grade games this year. I don’t see

One-eyed Cantab

Kudos needs to go to one man

at Saturday’s semi-final who

appeared to have had enough of

the lack of passion around him

and for a number of minutes

stood up from his seat near

midcourt, faced the crowd

behind him, and attempted to

rally the troops.

If we all made half the noise

for our team that the kids

make for a free pizza or T-shirt,

UP IN THE AIR: Lyttelton finished the metro premier reserve round-robin in top spot. However, that may not be

enough to prevent them from being relegated from the competition next year.

Clubs’ future uncertain

how punishing us will solve the

bigger problem,” said Hoera.

Lyttelton currently have two

senior teams and eight junior

teams. Suburbs have two senior

a colts, a women’s and seven

junior teams. Otautahi have two

senior and four junior teams.

Metro committee chairman

Brent Goldsmid said a decision

will be made at the meeting

on August 7, but declined to

comment further on the

matter.

Said Canterbury Rugby chief

executive Tony Smail: “We

support the decision by the

Metro Committee to revisit the

outcome determined in 2017.

A lot of change has occurred

in club rugby over the last two

years, and before any final

decisions are made it makes a lot

of sense to review the proposed

changes to ensure the correct

outcomes for club rugby in

Canterbury are achieved.”

Horncastle Arena would have

been pumping.

But we live in an age where

we rely on someone with a

microphone telling us when we

should make some noise.

When the Crusaders –

which have one of the best

driving mauls in world rugby

– have a lineout 5m from the

opposition line we shouldn’t

need to have someone tell us

to “make some noise for your

Crusaders” because they’re in the

“red zone”.

Where did it all go wrong,

when did we lose our mojo?

I think to some degree it’s

a fear of looking like a clown.

But if we can embrace some of

we should embrace the same

happening in the stands.

do you dislike or enjoy it when

the game, but the only place we

should be pointing the finger is

at ourselves.

Springs on Saturday, Lincoln Uni will be

As has been the case for the majority

of their season, they will be without

also miss first-five Rameka Poihipi, lock

Cullen Grace and fullback Sam Gilbert –

who have been contracted by Canterbury

for the upcoming Mitre 10 Cup season.

They’ve pretty much played every game

this year, apart from Cullen who went

away for the New Zealand under-20s and

has come back and made a really good

impact for us . . . it will be a shame to

lose them,” said Lincoln Uni coach Alex

Robertson.

Gilbert was instrumental in Lincoln

Uni’s bid to make the final, kicking a

perfect four from four in their 12-9 semifinal

win over Shirley at the weekend.

While Robertson admits reshuffling the

side for the final will be difficult, he has

faith in their youngest players who have

been called on a number of times this

season.

Oscar Koller – who was playing first XV

rugby for Takapuna Grammar last year –

is expected to start at first-five in place of

Poihipi.

The nature of having a young side

means a large chunk of the players have

yet to taste premier title success first-hand,

but they are all aware of the legacy which

could be continued.

“We addressed the five-peat at the start

of the season, but haven’t talked about it

since. We’ve just kept it as one week at a

time and like we’ve never won it before.”

Robertson is new to club this year. He

arrived at Lincoln Uni after a number of

years coaching Darfield in the country

competition.

Former Rams skipper a fan favourite

In a new series The Star

looks back each week

at Canterbury’s sporting

icons from yesteryear.

This week Gordon

Findlater talks to one of

his childhood heroes –

former Canterbury Rams

captain Jason Kyle

FROM 1990-99, Jason Kyle was

a staple in the Rams and became

a leading figure in the squad for

the best part of a decade.

Famous for lighting up the

court and once regarded as

the NBL’s premier three-point

shooter, Kyle is now better

known for rebounding backyards

in Western Australia with

his landscaping business.

Just over 13 years ago, Kyle

moved to Perth with his family

for a winter, and has yet to return

home permanently. He now lives

in Mandurah – an hour south

of Perth – where he runs a business

and coaches the Mandurah

Magic in the State Basketball

League.

Kyle was lucky enough to be

part of the NBL over one of the

league’s golden periods and remembers

his toughest individual

on-court battles being against

current New Zealand Basketball

high-performance coach

Leonard King. The United States

import was a star for the Otago

Nuggets during the 1990s, and is

the fourth all-time leading scorer

in the history of the NBL.

“(King) was a big strong physical

guy and there was no love

lost between Leonard and I. I’ve

taken way too many charges

against that guy. He just had one

of those habits of dropping his

shoulder and I used to be able

to read it quite well, much to his

disgust,” Kyle said.

On the road and away from

the rowdy home supporters at

Cowles Stadium, he says the likes

of Hawkes Bay and Nelson always

produced capacity crowds.

His most distinct memory was

against the Nelson Giants, where

the crowd came up with a unique

way to get into the Rams’ heads.

“I remember one year they

literally had a lamb on the spit

roasting on the sideline . . . that

was interesting,” he said.

After growing up on the West

Coast and in Kaikoura as a keen

rugby player, Kyle got his first

taste of basketball at Christchurch

Boys’ High and never

looked back after cracking the

senior team in the fourth form.

“We were really fortunate in

those days at Boys’ High. We had

Keith Mair as one of the coaches,

who was the national coach and

the Rams coach then,” said Kyle.

He won a national title with

CBHS in the sixth form and

the side were runners-up in his

final year. In 1990, he went on

to make his Rams debut as an

18-year-old.

In 1991, Kyle won the Ambassadors

Trophy (male junior

player of the year) at the Basketball

New Zealand awards. The

following year he played a sixth

man-type role during the Rams

last NBL-winning campaign in

1992. In 1993, the Rams lost 66-

68 to Hutt Valley in the grandfinal

and in 1994 they suffered

the same fate losing to Nelson

66-67.

In the 1994 final, the Rams

were up by 20 points during the

first half before an epic Nelson

comeback.

“Chris Tupu would hate me if I

said it, but I remember getting a

steal and with less than a minute

to go and chucking it up to him

about 20

years ago

and on

Saturday.

. . . he was probably one of the

premier point guards in the

competition at the time, and he

dribbled it out of bounds off his

foot,” said Kyle.

Following the Rams success

in the early 1990s, they took a

step back with the departure of a

number of senior players, including

Gilbert Gordon, Ian Webb,

Andy Bennett and John Hill.

“I basically became the senior

player at all of 23 . . . we were still

competitive and winning games,

but very much a mid-table team,”

said Kyle.

However, towards the end

of the 1990s, the Rams were

reinforced with the likes of Rob

Hickey and Carlo Varricchio.

After making the playoffs in

1998, they built on the effort to

finish as beaten finalists on their

home court in 1999.

“It was a good effort by the

team we had on paper to get to

the finals and put in a pretty

good performance I thought.”

Unbeknown to him at the

time, the grand-final loss to

the Auckland Rebels would

be Kyle’s last for the Rams. In

2000, the franchise came under

the new ownership of John

Watson, which spelled the end

for coach Bert Knops. Kyle and

Knops went on to establish the

Kaikoura Whale Riders and

won the national division two

title in 2001. While in Kaikoura,

Kyle worked as a boat driver for

Dolphin Encounter.

One of Kyle’s favourite memories

on the court came when

Kaikoura upset the Rams in an

Easter tournament, which he

admits had some extra feeling

due to the exodus of a number of

former Rams to Kaikoura after

Watson’s arrival.

“John Watson actually kicked

up a bit of a stink (about) us

playing in that tournament, and

I know why he did in the end,

because we played Canterbury in

the second game and beat them,”

Kyle said.

Following his playing days in

Kaikoura, he moved to Australia

in 2006.

The shooting guard/small

forward visited Christchurch

over the weekend to attend the

NBL final four and cheer on his

former side 20 years after the last

time he took the court with the

Rams.

While Kyle’s own playing days

are over, Rams fans may not have

seen the last of the Kyle family at

the franchise.

His son Cousteau – who

follows the Rams progress from

across the ditch – will head to

the United States this week to

start a basketball scholarship at

Ranger College in Texas.

What you need to know about Open

Homes when you’re selling a property

When you’re selling a property you get to

decide how the open home process is run. If you’re

working with a real estate agent, this is will be

part of the marketing plan that you agree upon

with them before you sign the agency agreement.

The real estate agent will advise you on the

timing and frequency of open homes, or any other

viewings. If there is anything you are uncertain

about, talk to the agent and make your feelings

clear. There’s no law that you have to have open

homes – you may decide that you’d rather have

viewings by appointment only.

“Bear in mind though that in order to sell

your home, people will have to see it,” says Kevin

Lampen-Smith, chief executive of the Real Estate

Authority (REA). “You may have to be flexible

on when viewings are held, even if they are not

particularly convenient.”

When it comes to the marketing and selling

process of your home it’s a good idea to look at

things from the perspective of the real estate

agent and any prospective purchaser, Lampen-

Smith says.

“Open homes often attract people who are just

browsing to see what’s around, or neighbours who

have always wanted to see what ‘that house at

number 10’ is like. The agent will report back to

you after the open home to let you know the level of

interest – if they have kept an electronic or paper

record of visitors it will give you an indication of

how many visitors were sticky beaks from down the

street.”

In an ideal world, people will treat your home

with respect when viewing it, he says.

“If you suspect they will need reminding,

request that the agent asks visitors to remove

any wet weather gear or shoes before entering.

Most people go on a major cleaning, tidying and

de-cluttering mission before putting a property

on the market, which will make it much easier to

prepare it for an open home. It’s a good idea to

clear away any valuables or personal items (if time

is short, dump them all in a washing basket that

you can pick up and take with you) and use your

own common sense about what you want strangers

to see.”

Don’t shove things into cupboards or wardrobes

– prospective buyers will be keen to gauge storage

capacity. Remember that families with small

children could be going through your property and

delicate ornaments or family heirlooms might be

better out of harm’s way.

Selling a property can be a stressful time, but

you’ll make it much easier on yourself if you work

out a plan of attack, including getting the advice

of professionals along the way, Lampen-Smith

says.

“Present your home well and it’s more likely to

attract another set of owners.”
