Fatal hit-and-run

High-profile offender

in police chase before

pedestrian killed

• By Jess Gibson

QUESTIONS ARE being asked

over what supervision was in

place for serious repeat offender

Marcel Sydney Geros leading up

to yesterday’s fatal hit-and-run in

New Brighton.

Geros

(right) was a

passenger in

a vehicle with

two others

when it failed

to stop for

police shortly

before 2pm.

Police

abandoned the

pursuit but the

vehicle was

located soon

after and Geros

and a woman

were apprehended.

The people

in the vehicle

were gang-affiliated. A third

person ran off and stole a van

which rammed a police dog

vehicle and soon after struck

and killed a pedestrian at the

intersection of Hawke St and

Shaw Ave.

Late yesterday police said they

were seeking Liam Strickland,

21, in relation to the hit-and-run.

The pedestrian, who lived in a

van in an empty New Brighton

car park, was standing in the

road and appeared to be trying

to wave down the fleeing vehicle.

Ten days ago, Geros escaped

a prison sentence for the

attempted kidnapping of a

woman while

jogging

in Ilam in

September last

year.

When he

appeared in

the district

court for

sentencing,

Judge Raoul

Neave decided

not to jail

Geros. Instead,

he received

two years

of intensive

supervision.

Judge Neave

told the court

he expected a

backlash over his decision.

Geros has a violent

background and was jailed in

2008 for the brutal bashing of an

elderly man in the North Island.

“No doubt there will be letters

to the editor demanding my

resignation. It won’t be the first

time and it won’t be the last,”

said Judge Neave.

responding, meeting monthly

with a group of representatives

Gough’s mayoralty plans:

Decision early next week

• By Louis Day

JAMES GOUGH will decide

early next week whether he will

challenge Lianne Dalziel for the

mayoralty.

The high-profile city councillor

has been pondering over running

for months but said a final decision

was likely to happen early

next week before nominations

close on Friday.

There is no hurry with these

things, there are a number of

things that I want to look at and

there is still a bit of work that

needs to be done, not in the

11th-hour, but certainly in the

last week of nominations I will be

making a decision,” he said.

Businessman Darryll Park

announced he would be running

on Tuesday.

Both Cr Gough and Mr Park,

a co-owner of restaurant and bar

Fat Eddie’s, are well-known figures

within the business community.

If both run at the same time

this could split the centre-right

vote and play right into the hands

of left-leaning candidates such as

current mayor Lianne Dalziel and

high-profile activist John Minto.

Ms Dalziel, a former Labour

Cabinet Minister before she

became the mayor in 2013, and

Mr Minto, a political activist who

was at the forefront of protests

against the Springbok tour in

1981, are likely to get the leftleaning

vote.

Mr Park said this was not

something he had really

Lianne Dalziel

thought about.

“I respect James for whatever

decision he makes,” he said.

Cr Gough saw Mr Park as a

strong candidate and would not

comment as to whether him

standing would influence his

own decision to run.

“I have known Darryll for quite

some time and he certainly has

an impressive track record, I

have a lot of time for him.”

Former city councillor and

mayoral candidate Paul Lonsdale

could further divide the centreright

vote if he decides to run.

Darryll Park Paul

Lonsdale

Mr Lonsdale, another wellknown

figure in the business

community, said he was not ruling

out a run for the mayoralty.

James Gough

He did not think running

would scamper the chances of

other right-leaning candidates.

“I think each candidate going

into this election will bring their

own qualities people will be able

to identify with, I don’t see any

massive similarities between any

of the candidates,” he said.

Tourism operator Robin

McCarthy, retail worker

Stephen McPaike and

telecommunications technician

Adrian Schonborn are also

running for mayor.

Questions over

supervision

•From page 1

Judge Neave told the court he

had been impressed by Geros’

efforts to distance himself from

gang associates and the progress

he had made while on remand in

jail for the attempted kidnapping

charge.

Intensive supervision is a

community-based supervision

sentence which is imposed if the

court thinks it would reduce the

likelihood of further offending

through rehabilitation and

reintegration of the offender.

The Department of Corrections

yesterday refused to discuss the

incident, or say if Geros was being

supervised or not because it was

an “active police investigation.”

But Sensible Sentencing Trust

national spokeswoman said

questions needed to be answered.

The trust would be pushing

to have Judge Neave’s intensive

supervision sentence reviewed.

“Being under intense

supervision he shouldn’t have

been in the car with whoever he

was with,” she said.

“He clearly cannot be out in the

community.”

She said there has recently been

a lot of similar cases where people

were breaching their intensive

supervision.

“It’s not working and the

resources are not there to be able

to put people under intensive

supervision.”

IT’S A dirty job, but someone

has to do it.

That is Trevor and Alison

Murray’s reason behind why

they will pick up any litter,

broken glass and dog faeces

they see while walking

throughout the suburb.

“Somebody has got to do it,”

Mrs Murray said.

Every day while walking their

two dogs Abby and Macey, the

couple will clean up the suburb’s

parks and streets, along with reporting

anything on city council

property needing repairs.

They have been presented

with a Keep Christchurch Beautiful

Award in recognition of

their hard work.

Mrs Murray, who is also a

member of the Greater Hornby

Residents’ Association, said

she was “thrilled” to have been

acknowledged.

The couple will often walk to

areas including Oakhampton

Reserve, Trevor Reserve and

the old Branston Intermediate

School site.

“One day we came home with

three cartons of alcohol cans

and bottles left at the old school.

It is things like that, that really

disgusts me,” Mrs Murray said.

Her message to other residents

is to “clean up after yourself.”

“I am not saying I am perfect,

because I am not, but it never

hurts people to pick up rubbish,”

Mrs Murray said.

Her message also goes to dog

owners not picking up their

dog’s faeces in public spaces.

“You are not allowed to leave

it on the ground but some dog

owners don’t care . . . it is a

legal requirement but it is also a

moral obligation,” Mrs Murray

said.

She said she gets annoyed

with takeaway restaurants due

to the amount of rubbish she

finds.

Her other concerns are children

injuring themselves as a

result of broken glass left on the

streets.

The city council can’t afford

to have the parks cleaned

up . . . it comes back to us

unless they want to put up their

rates.”

Last year the association

obtained a litter picker,

gloves and bags from the

Keep Christchurch Beautiful

organisation to allow Mr and

Mrs Murray to continue their

efforts.

INVESTIGATORS ARE still

struggling to identify the cause

of an explosion that destroyed a

Northwood house.

Several items of interest have

been found at the blast site.

Fire and Emergency New

Zealand is continuing to investigate

the cause and origin of the

gas explosion that obliterated a

Marble Court house on July 19.

Blast waves threw chunks

of roof tiles and other debris

around the neighbourhood.

One Greymouth man was

rushed to Christchurch Hospital

where he was placed on life support.

Five others were also taken to

hospital.

Neighbours and passers-by

who pulled stunned survivors

from the burning debris at the

time they were amazed that

nobody was instantly killed.

Over the past week representatives

of Fenz, WorkSafe, police

and the insurance industry have

worked together to reconstruct

large portions of the house in

which the blast occurred to gain

a clearer picture of what happened.

But the cause of the blast has

not yet been definitively established.

Fenz Christchurch Metro

Area Commander David

Stackhouse indicated that the

investigation will likely continue

over the coming weeks and will

include the testing of several

items of interest found at the

blast site.

Personal belongings, including

photo albums, have been

recovered from a number of the

properties badly affected by the

explosion and returned to their

owners.

news online at www.star.kiwi

Blast cause still unknown

TESTING: The Northwood house which was destroyed in

an explosion is still cordoned off and is the subject of a

Fire and Emergency New Zealand investigation.

“For many families photographs

are their most important

belongings,” Stackhouse said.

“Those working on the investigation

were delighted that they

were able to reunite many of the

people affected by the explosion

with these irreplaceable items.”

The scene of the incident

remains under guard while the

investigation continues.

•If you have concerns

about your gas system,

contact your gas retailer

or a licensed gas worker

to check the installation.

If you notice a gas smell

that persists after you turn

off your gas appliances or

Northwood rates

remission to

be considered

• By Louis Day

CITY COUNCILLORS will vote on

whether a rates remission should be

granted to homeowners forced to

move out of their properties due to

the Northwood gas explosion.

This comes after some of the

residents affected by the explosion

on July 19 contacted the city council

regarding options for rates relief.

Four properties have been given

dangerous building notices, four

have been given restricted access

notices and other properties have

had to be vacated in spite of not being

issued a notice of any form.

The house where the explosion

occurred, 9 Marble Court, was completely

destroyed.

City council staff have advised

against issuing any of the houses a

rates remission due to it being inconsistent

with the stance taken in

the past with ratepayers in similar

circumstances.

No remissions were given by the

city council in response to the 2017

Port Hills fires. A remission was not

given following the fire at Antonio

Hall on Riccarton Rd last month.

However, rates remissions have

been granted in the past.

In March 2014 the city council

granted a full rates remission to occupants

of a Redcliffs house due to

land movement risk. The following

month full remissions were granted

to properties affected by flooding.

Blueprint for how to house region’s

• By Louis Day

GREATER Christchurch will

need 86,000 new homes by 2048

to accommodate a predicted

population increase of 150,000.

The new report Our Space

2018-2048: Greater Christchurch

Settlement Pattern Update sets

the plan for housing development

in the region over the next three

decades.

The plan – which was put

together by the city council,

councils – predicts the region’s

population will increase to

640,000 by 2048.

It identifies preferred locations

for housing growth and sets

housing targets to accommodate

the increased demand. The need

for social and affordable housing

is recognised in the report as one

of the plan’s key challenges.

“Social and affordable housing

will become an increasingly

critical issue. Enabling higher

density housing developments at

different price points will be vital

to meeting the projected increase

in demand for smaller, more

affordable dwellings,” the report

says.

growing population

Transport specialist and

former adviser to John Key,

Axel Wilke, said having more

people living in the city will

help, but is not the complete

answer to reducing commuter

flows and pressure on transport

infrastructure.

There is nothing

fundamentally wrong with there

being housing development in

Selwyn or the Waimakariri, but

those should be

alongside, or

very close to,

rapid transport

corridors,” he

said.

“With rapid

transport

available,

Adam

Thompson

people in the

outer districts

would not have

to drive, or they will be better

off not driving, because rapid

transport gets them there faster

and more reliably.”

Selwyn will take on 20 per

cent of the housing demand

with a target of 17,290 new

homes and Waimakariri the

remaining 15 per cent with a

target of 13,360.

Urban economist Adam

Thompson said urban expansion

is likely to have an impact on

agriculture but this would be “a

small price to pay.”

TIME TO BUILD: The Selwyn district has a target of 17,290

new homes by 2048, while Waimakariri aims to have

another 13,360.

“New Zealand has the highest

agricultural exports per capita

of any country in the world,

and it also has some of the most

unaffordable housing. In my

opinion, affordable housing

is a more pressing issue for

the country than agricultural

production,” he said.

Mr Thompson is concerned

the Selwyn district does not have

the land to keep up with the

demand.

A minimum net density of 12

households per hectare will be

implemented in Rolleston, which

currently has a net density of 10

households per hectare.

But Mr Thompson says at the

current rate, Rolleston will run

out of undeveloped land by 2025.

“Towns like Rolleston are

providing most of the city’s

affordable housing and are in

strong demand, particularly by

young families. The amount of

land that Our Space has allocated

for these towns isn’t enough to

keep pace with this demand,” he

said.

“Rolleston needs a buffer

of around eight to 10 years of

undeveloped land to ensure there

is enough land for builders and

prices are not pushed up at a fast

rate.”

Man charged after

mother buys back toy

• By Sophie Cornish

A MOTHER took matters

into her own hands after her

daughter’s electric ride-on car

was stolen then posted for sale on

Facebook just hours later.

Shirley resident Alysha

Kinnaird became frustrated after

reporting the burglary to police

and being told it may take a few

days for action to be taken.

Miss Kinnaird’s garage was

broken into and her two-year-old

daughter’s toy electric car worth

$450, a $300 fitness machine and

a $500 trampoline still in its box

were stolen on July 27.

“I rang the police. They just

took some notes down and said if

I find out any more information

to let them know. So I posted

on the buy/sell pages for people

to look out for anyone selling

the items. Then about an hour

later, I got flooded with all these

messages of screen-shots of this

person selling the ride-on. It

looked pretty dodgy because they

were selling it for $70, I brought it

for $450. He was saying they sell

for $200.”

The seller lived just around the

corner. Miss Kinnaird pretended

to be an interested buyer and

then asked her ex-partner to go

around and buy the ride-on car.

Canterbury

no longer

the MDMA

capital of

New Zealand

• By Sophie Cornish

CANTERBURY has lost its

title as New Zealand’s MDMA

capital.

New data from police

wastewater drug testing shows

Southland has claimed the title

for the drug’s prevalence.

From February to April,

Canterbury samples showed

400mg per day per 1000 people

of MDMA in the wastewater.

Southland had 600mg.

At the Christchurch testing

site, MDMA/ecstasy made

up 50 per cent of the drugs

found in the wastewater,

methamphetamine 47 per cent

and cocaine three per cent.

MDMA/ecstasy is the second

most commonly detected illicit

drug across New Zealand, with

an estimated consumption rate

of 5.7kg on average each week.

The testing for

methamphetamine, cocaine,

heroin, MDMA/ecstasy and

fentanyl was undertaken at 37

wastewater plants, covering

80 per cent of New Zealand’s

population.

PROPERTIES IN Canterbury,

including one in Avonside,

were raided yesterday as

part of a nationwide police

methamphetamine sting.

Ten people were arrested and

more than $1 million in cash

and assets was seized across New

Zealand.

National Organised Crime

Group Detective Inspector Greg

Cramer said more than 150 staff

executed search warrants at

17 residential and commercial

properties throughout the wider

Canterbury, Auckland and

Southland districts.

The warrants were part of

Operation Maddale, a

10-month investigation into

the supply and distribution

of methamphetamine and

subsequent money laundering

throughout the country.

To date, the investigation

has seized 20kg of

methamphetamine, with an

estimated street value of more

than $12 million, Detective

Inspector Cramer said.

More than $550,000 in

cash was also seized, along

with several high-end vehicles,

including a Porsche Macan,

Jeep Wrangler, three

Harley-Davidsons, a Ford

Ranger, a Yamaha bike, and a

jetski.

Jewellery, including a $70,000

necklace, was also seized.

Meth bust nets $1m in cash, assets

RAID: Several vehicles, including a Porsche and Harley-Davidson motor-cycles, have been

seized by police as part of a major operation targeting the supply and distribution of

methamphetamine.

In total, more than $1

million in cash and assets were

restrained.

Detective Inspector Cramer

said the seizures and arrests

have disrupted a sophisticated

methamphetamine network

within New Zealand.

“This drug has a devastating

impact on our communities

and affects countless Kiwi

families. The seizure of 20kg of

methamphetamine will

prevent significant further harm

to those families,” he said.

“We want to send a strong

message that anyone who

chooses to cause harm to

our community through the

manufacture or supply of this

drug will be found out and held

accountable.”

Ten people, aged between 21

and 42, will face more than 70

charges between them, including

supply of methamphetamine,

possession for supply of

methamphetamine, money

laundering and participating in

an organised criminal group.

They are due to appear in the

Christchurch, Auckland and

Dunedin district courts this

week.

The investigation is ongoing at

this stage.

Police have not ruled out the

possibility of further seizures

Police chase fraudster’s $250k money trail

• By Sophie Cornish

A REPEAT fraudster has been

caught in another scam involving

more than $250,000 – but police

still don’t know where the money

has gone.

Brendon Karl Dean Harris

pleaded guilty in the district

court last week to 12 fraud

charges relating to a sophisticated

scam dating back to 2017 and

early last year.

Detective Glenn Forrest, who

ran Operation Luna which led to

Harris’ arrest, said he could only

speculate about where the money

is now.

He also believes there were

more people involved than have

been charged.

There are definitely other

people involved. Who they are,

we can’t prove to an evidential

standard,” he said.

Police traced the money to six

different bank accounts of Harris’

family members and friends. It

was then removed, mainly by

cash withdrawals.

Reparations are being sought

from the people who’s bank

accounts were used and they have

been charged with receiving.

All seven, including Harris,

refused to say where the money

went, and some even declined

to be formally interviewed by

police.

Said Detective Forrest: “To

date, none of them have wanted

to tell us where that money has

gone. It’s pretty obvious it has

gone from their accounts, but

where is the big question?

“It’s been withdrawn as cash.

That becomes very difficult to

trace. The obvious assumption is

that (Harris) has got it back, but

that’s as far as it goes.”

Harris obtained the money by

collecting identification details

of people online, including

driver licences and bank account

details.

He did this typically by using a

fake account and then advertising

rental accommodation or a car

for sale. He would then request

the details so that a deposit could

be made.

Those details were then used

to apply for loans from finance

company, Gem Finance, which

allows loan applications over the

phone and online.

Police were alerted to the issue

when complainants reported

their identities had been used to

obtain loans which they had not

applied for.

The size of the loans ranged

from $8000-$35,000. One loan

was able to be reversed by a

bank.

Detective Forrest said it wasn’t

entirely clear why his family and

friends got involved.

“So whether they are being

paid for the privilege of using

their bank accounts, or maybe

they were coerced, that’s the

problem, we just don’t know.

There are plenty of theories, but

we can’t go beyond speculation

because no one wants to talk to

us,” he said.

Harris denied his involvement

up until his guilty pleas last week,

which surprised police.

Said Detective Forrest: “Those

guilty pleas last week were the

first time there had been any real

acknowledgement of what he had

done, most of it was just denial.”

In March, Harris begged

Judge Farish in the district

court to not send him back to jail

for his involvement in another

scam, which targeted elderly

people.

Harris needs surgery to reduce

his weight but has been told he

will not be able to go ahead with

the surgery due to a serious heart

condition.

ENVIRONMENT Canterbury’s

Central Constituency looks likely

to be the most hotly contested in

October’s local body elections.

Independents Lan Pham and

Axel Wilke, Independent Citizens’

Evan Harris and Felicity

Price will contest the two seats

with The People’s Choice set to

put forward two candidates of

their own.

Mr Harris said he is seeking to

ease restrictions on wood burners.

But he says there is no conflict

of interest in spite of being a

director for a wood burner

manufacturing business.

In January ECan began enforcing

a rule allowing only ultra-low

emission burners to be installed

in properties less than 2ha, which

are two to three times more expensive

than low emission burners

to install at up to $9000.

Mr Harris is the director of finance

for Woodsman Fires where

they sell ultra-low and also low

emission burners.

He wanted to see the rule

changed back to what it used to

be when low emission burners

were allowed to be installed in all

properties.

Mr Harris said the rule change

has affected businesses.

“Some are doing better, some

are doing not as well,” he said.

Mr Harris said changing the

rule would not benefit his business,

but benefit the people who

can not afford the ultra-low emission

burners.

“We have now got a significant

part of the population who

look at the cost of reinstallment

and can’t afford it, so what do

they do? Do they take on massive

debt and do it? Do they not use

their fire and run up triple their

electricity bill or do they just

keep illegally using their own

burner?”

Right-leaning political group

Independent Citizens will

partner Mr Harris with the

chairwoman of the Arts Centre

Felicity Price.

Ms Price, who was a recipient

of the Queen’s honour ONZM for

saving the Court Theatre after the

2011 earthquakes, thought she

had the experience to get things

done for Christchurch.

Mr Wilke, a transport specialist

and former technical adviser

to John Key, is teaming up with

Hot contest for ECan Central

sitting councillor and freshwater

Left-leaning political group

The People’s Choice originally

intended of running Community

Action on Youth and Drugs senior

project worker Paul McMahon

and union worker Anthony

Rimell.

However, it withdrew Mr

Rimell from running for ECan

so he could challenge the city

council’s Riccarton Ward.

This came after the group was

left scrambling to find a candidate

after Vicki Buck announced

she would not be running for

re-election.

Ms Buck is a candidate the leftleaning

group would have been

relying on to help them achieve

their agenda of preventing asset

sales.

The People’s Choice president

Keir Leslie said they were hoping

to announce a candidate to

partner Mr McMahon in the near

future.

Residents still unhappy

with Northern Arterial plan

• By Claire Booker

RESIDENTS ARE unhappy

with the city council’s revised

plan to reduce traffic in St

Albans once the Northern

Arterial Motorway is built.

St Albans Residents

Association chairwoman

Emma Twaddell said the

updated plan does not do

enough to reduce congestion

and carbon emissions. She says

the city council is not showing

leadership after it declared a

climate emergency.

The controversial Downstream

Effects Management Plan was

revised after the city council

opted not to endorse it. The

original plan did not address

traffic volumes on Cranford St

which are expected to more than

double from an existing 21,000

vehicles a day to 48,000 vehicles

a day within five years.

However, some of the revised

plan’s major objectives to reduce

traffic, such as public transport

and high occupancy vehicle

lanes, have been described as

a project for the future in the

plan’s consultation document.

Residents are frustrated

because under the plan the lanes

won’t be completed by the time

the motorway extension opens

late next year.

Said Ms Twaddell: “Have they

forgotten they declared a climate

change emergency a month ago?

Where is the courage to make a

change that is urgently required to

reduce carbon emissions now?”

Said city council transport

planning and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis: “These projects are

not part of the initial package of

works we’re proposing in the St

Albans, Edgeware and Mairehau

areas, but they are part of the

big-picture approach. We have

also designed the initial package

of work to allow for bus or carpooling

lanes to be added in

when this work is complete.”

However, Ms Twaddell said

the city council needs to move

faster.

“We can’t lower our emissions

without better transport options

which allow this. But once

again, the city council is focused

on using our rate money to

accommodate single-occupant

commuter traffic and at the

detriment to many of their

residents,” she said.

City councillor Mike Davidson

said the revised plan is not perfect.

The proposal that’s gone out

was never going to be perfect

because when you throw a

motorway into a suburb, it’s

always going to create bad

outcomes. But what we’re trying

to achieve is something good out

of it.”

Locomotive to feature in British doco

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

FOR MORE than four years,

Sam Mackwell has been working

on building an environmentallysustainable

steam locomotive to

use for commuter rail.

Now he is likely to get international

coverage for his creation.

The West Melton man is

earmarked to feature on Britishmade

documentary series The

World’s Most Scenic Railway

Journeys.

Mr Mackwell is likely to be

filmed this weekend or early

next week by London-based

BriteSpark Films as part of the

company’s plans to document

the TranzAlpine which

runs from Christchurch to

Greymouth.

It will feature in one of its episodes

as part of a six-part series

for the British television network

Channel 5. So far, filming locations

have included rail journeys

in Switzerland, Spain, Norway

and Canada.

Mr Mackwell has been working

on developing a boiler for a

sustainable steam locomotive

that would burn wood rather

than coal.

He told The Star the documentary

will be a good opportunity

to introduce his new technology.

Mr Mackwell said he believes

the technology has the potential

to reduce or eliminate carbon dioxide

emissions in the future and

he hopes it will be used to pull

the TranzAlpine in the future.

“But that is a long way into the

future,” he said.

KiwiRail’s head of tourism

and marketing Ahleen Rayner

said it is working with the

company to provide access to the

TranzAlpine.

“We are pleased that our iconic

TranzAlpine service will be

shown to an international audience,”

she said.

National Geographic magazine

rated the TranzAlpine as one of

the most scenic railway journeys

in the world in 2017.

The film crew has booked to

stay in Arthur’s Pass where they

will also film the people who live

there and the world-famous keas.

The historic Arthur’s Pass and

Springfield railway stations will

also feature heavily in the documentary,

The Star understands.

Arthur’s Pass Alpine Motel

SPOTLIGHT: Sam Mackwell, who has been

building an environmentally-sustainable steam

locomotive, is likely to feature in an international

documentary on the TranzAlpine.

owner Peter Neale said the company

had booked into the motel

on Monday and Tuesday.

“I think it is awesome. It has

quite often been in the top 10

with reviews but the top six is

even more impressive,” he said.

Springfield Railway Station

Cafe leasee Heather Valphy said

she thought the filming would

take place on Saturday but it had

not been confirmed.

They are very interested in

the Barrys Bay cheese platters

we make for the train and they

are using that as a different

perspective rather than the usual

historic take on railway trips,”

she said.

Launched in January 2013,

BriteSparks predominantly focuses

on in-depth social issues.

The film company is also

potentially planning to

document a historic locomotive

at the Canterbury Steam

Preservation Society based at

McLeans Island.

Rabbit cull

results still

weeks away

• By Sophie Cornish

HOW EFFECTIVE a cull of

rabbits in the red zone has been

will be known in several weeks.

Land Information New Zealand,

which manages the land, said all of

the carrots contaminated with the

calicivirus K5 have been consumed

since the drop late last month.

LINZ manager land and property

Matt Bradley said biosecurity

experts will survey the rabbit

numbers in late September or early

October to determine if further

control is required. The population

will be compared to a survey

carried out last year. The number

of rabbits found dead so far has

been relatively low, because they

often return to their burrows, Mr

Bradley said.

A contractor is regularly

inspecting the area to remove

any dead rabbits. “We have also

instructed our maintenance

contractors to report if they find

dead rabbits so we can have them

removed,” Mr Bradley said.

No further releases of the virus

have been scheduled yet. As part of

the management of the red zone,

LINZ is legally required under the

Canterbury Regional Pest Control

Strategy to reduce rabbit and pest

numbers when they get too high.

TRADITIONALLY 50th

anniversaries are celebrated

with gold, but a badminton

club has used ice to mark the

occasion – and lots of it.

When a contingent of 23

players from Lincoln headed

to Franz Josef to celebrate the

club’s 50th anniversary, the

original plan was to only play

badminton in the town’s hall.

However, that quickly

changed after a phone call

between Lincoln club captain

John Morrish and Franz Josef

player Graham Berry. The idea

of taking advantage of some

‘local rates’ to go up the glacier

via helicopter was raised by

Berry before things skyrocketed.

“I said: ‘We can take a

badminton racket and have a hit

up there,” said Morrish.

After a short pause, Graham

said: “That’s a great idea. Leave

it to me.”

With enthusiastic support

from Franz Josef Glacier Guides,

Tourism Westland and local

helicopter operators, the joke

became a reality.

It was decided Morrish and

Adam Thomas would represent

Canterbury, while Berry and

Adrian Waters would represent

South Westland in the first ever

provincial game of badminton

on the glacier.

Guides went up in the

morning and flattened off an

area half the size of a standard

badminton court. The four

players then abseiled down to

the court before putting up a

net.

“If you were playing at one

end you had to be tethered with

an ice screw and a short rope,

so you couldn’t disappear at

the end of the court. If you did

you wouldn’t come back,” said

Morrish.

FORMER Christchurch Boys’

High School cyclist Bailey

O’Donnell’s gamble on himself

appears to be paying off as

he won his first road race in

Europe.

The 18-year-old is in the midst

of a two-month stint racing on

the roads of Belgium, an opportunity

organised by former

New Zealand cyclist Hayden

Roulston.

O’Donnell said he would use

the opportunity to try to make

the most of his talent while

he could, but he has also been

doing some part-time building

work back in Christchurch.

O’Donnell won a 100km race,

often referred to as a kermesse,

in Deinze, west of Flanders.

He is racing for a small

under-23 Belgium team and is

loving the experience.

“Belgium is pretty much the

home of road cycling in the

world, I think it’s the biggest

sport here after soccer.

They have many different

kinds of races on every day of

the week in different areas, people

come from all over the world

to race here.

They close the whole town

O’Donnell said he saw an opportunity

to take control of the

race and took it.

“I decided to race a lot more

aggressive than I have been and

put myself in to the red a lot

OPINION 21

Fournier and the turbulent 1990s

From the

editor’s desk

Barry Clarke

SWAIN: Left – in the early

90s. Right – During his

murder trial in 2015.

THE UNTIMELY death

of lawyer Tim Fournier

has rekindled a period of

Christchurch’s criminal history

– the turbulent early 1990s.

Fournier, who died from a fall

in his office, was defence lawyer

for Neil Raymond Swain, in

my view the closest thing to an

urban terrorist we have seen –

the March 15 mosque attacks

aside.

He was the key figure in a

reign of terror in Christchurch,

almost certainly prompted by

the police investigation into a

gang at the time – the Harrises.

Fournier was also a defence

lawyer for members of the gang

when they came before the

courts on other matters.

Police were never able to prove

Swain carried out his crimes for,

or as a result of, the crackdown.

He lived by the code of omertà –

the Mafia word for silence.

His crimes included the nail

bombing of the Sydenham police

station, torching a prosecution

witness’ house and breaking into

a policeman’s house and trying

to burn it down.

Fournier defended Swain

admirably but the weight of

evidence was against him:

Electoral rolls with the names of

police and other potential targets

were found in a lock-up he had

hired, he made notes and drew

maps and collected information,

all which fell into the hands of

the police when he was arrested.

The case got huge publicity at

the time.

The bombing of the police

station may well have been the

start of a long terror campaign if

Swain had not have been arrested

– and that was by chance.

He and another armed cooffender

(who has never been

identified) tried to hold up the

Ferrymead Tavern late one night.

But they were thwarted by a staff

member who locked the door

when she saw them coming.

Swain and his co-offender ran,

but Swain had an injured leg

and surrendered to a policeman

despatched to the area. The other

robber got away.

That arrest led police to

a rented lock-up in Upper

Riccarton where nine sticks of

gelignite, detonators, detonator

cord and vehicles were found.

Two sticks of gelignite had been

partly prepared as an explosive

device.

It was the breakthrough they

desperately needed. There was

almost an air of panic coming

from the central police station

in Hereford St – particularly

after an abandoned vehicle

carrying explosives stolen

from a mining site on the West

Coast had crashed en route to

Christchurch.

Police were aware that other

explosives had made it safely to

Christchurch – what was to have

been their use?

When Swain was sentenced,

almost all of the Christchurch

CIB was there to see him sent

down. He was jailed for 12 years.

A complex character, he lived

two lives. He held a steady job

and was regarded as a top worker

by his boss. There was nothing to

alert those close to him what he

was up to.

He also had a sense of fair play

– at times.

When he set the prosecution

witness’ house on fire, she told

him her dog was in the house.

(Swain and his still unidentified

co-offender had taken the

woman and her partner out at

gunpoint).

He went back into the burning

house and rescued the dog.

•Swain was paroled after

serving five and a half years.

He is currently back in prison,

serving a life sentence for the

murder of a man in the North

Island in 2015. As he was sent

down he addressed the judge:

“Well your honour, for once I am

innocent but found guilty . . .”

OPINION

The coming week in our history

August 8, 1915 – The high

point of the New Zealand

effort at Gallipoli, the attack

on Chunuk Bair underlined

the leadership qualities of

Lieutenant-Colonel William

Malone. Two columns of

the New Zealand Infantry

Brigade carried out the attack,

which began on August 6.

The operation started well,

but delays meant not all the

infantrymen had reached

Rhododendron Spur by the

time the assault on the summit

started next morning. After the

Auckland Battalion tried and

failed, Malone insisted that the

Wellingtons’ attack should be

delayed until after nightfall.

August 9, 1930 – George

Nepia, 25, played his last game

for the All Blacks, the final game

of the home series against the

British Lions. The All Blacks

won the match 22–8 to clinch

the series 3–1. Nepia was one

of the stars of the 1924–25 All

Blacks, dubbed the ‘Invincibles’.

He played in all 32 matches on

the team’s tour of the British

Isles, France and Canada.

August 10, 1840 – The

British asserted authority over

Akaroa before HMS Britomart

arrived at Akaroa, a week before

a shipload of French colonists

landed there. The ship’s captain

raised the Union Jack to confirm

British sovereignty over the area.

In 1838 the commander of the

French whaling ship Cachalot

made a dubious land purchase

from Māori on Banks Peninsula.

The Nanto-Bordelaise Company

was formed in France with the

goal of establishing a settlement

at Akaroa. In 1839 King

Louis-Philippe agreed to provide

assistance. Captain Charles

François Lavaud, the French

representative for the settlement,

sailed for New Zealand in April

1840. A month later, the Comte

de Parisset set off for Akaroa

carrying 53 emigrants.

August 13, 2005 - New

Zealand’s youngest prime

minister of the

20th-century,

David Lange,

died aged 63.

Renowned for

his sharp wit

and oratory, he

led the fourth

Labour government from 1984

to 1989.

August 14, 2011 – New

Zealand’s heaviest snowfall in

decades closed airports and

schools, forced the cancellation

of buses and trains, caused

electricity blackouts and cut off

many communities across the

country.

Judge has duty to protect public

Readers respond to a

decision by Judge Raoul

Neave not to impose

a prison sentence on

Marcel Sydney Geros

(right) after another

cowardly attack on a

vulnerable individual

Peter F Coleman – Judge

Raoul Neave’s statements point

to either, his own “creative”

solution, or a lax, jaundiced,

socialist justice system, or both.

If he expected there might be

a backlash in his decision on

sentencing Marcel Geros, then

perhaps the majority of people

know what the correct decision

should be.

He is turning his back on

vulnerable people in our

community, and if there is

no backlash, there should be.

However, I suspect, many

have become apathetic to judicial

decisions using restorative

techniques that emphasise

leniency at the expense of

victims, and their family. Setting

him free, albeit with supervision,

still allows the distinct

possibility of more assaults to be

committed.

It is ridiculous that the judge

thinks that imprisonment and

post-release conditions will do

nothing to address community

safety issues.

If he is jailed for these vicious

assaults, surely ordinary lawabiding

citizens can feel safe for

the time he is away. This judge

has a duty to protect the public

from serious bodily attacks.

Deliberate neglect of his duty

to his fellow citizens effectively

means he should resign.

Gary Tibbotts: It’s obvious

the good judge does not

remember Louisa Damodran

and Peter Holdem. Too late

afterwards saying I didn’t know

what to do when some wife or

husband lose their loved one.

Thinking outside the square

is fine, but it doesn’t involve

stupidity.

Roy Sinclair –

Congratulations on the opinion

piece in last week’s The Star.

Geros had already served a

lengthy prison term for other

crimes that obviously did him, or

society, little good.

Obviously, another approach

was an option. I have a colleague

who worked for the parole

board, he told me there is a small

number of hapless cases in the

prison system. Those are beyond

help. But he has seen some

remarkable turnarounds – some

from violent offenders.

OUR PEOPLE

Master farrier keeps his foot in the

Brian Wilson, 85, is a

name anyone in the

horse racing industry will

recognise. The former

farrier can still be found

at Riccarton as the club’s

plating inspector. On

Saturday, race three in the

Grand National Festival

of Racing’s first event

was named ‘Brian Wilson

51 years a farrier’ in his

honour. Gordon Findlater

catches up with him

Can you remember the first

time you shoed a horse?

I would have been 14 or 15 on

the West Coast and one of the

guys that did have a horse was

Jock Butterfield, who played for

the Kiwis, and he wanted to put

some shoes on this horse, so they

gave me some tools and to this

day I feel sorry for the horse.

That was my first experience of

shoeing a horse.

What was it like growing up

on the West Coast back then?

I quite enjoyed it, but there

wasn’t a great future. You worked

in the forestry or the bush as we

called it, or the mines. I came

over here in 1951 and that’s

when I really got involved in

the horses. My brother was an

apprentice jockey, so I thought,

STILL SHARP: Farrier Brian Wilson plies his trade as the plating inspector at Riccarton on

race days.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

well, I’ll see how I go, but it

wasn’t to be.

How did you become a farrier

in Christchurch?

When I was apprenticed, I lived

in Rangiora and my boss had

horses trained in Christchurch

here at Riccarton. That was Bob

Wilson and his son Bobby was

the farrier there, so I had to spend

time with him and virtually

followed through the entire way.

The Wilsons were no relation, but

they were close friends. So that’s

how I got into the trade.

How has the industry

changed since you started?

You don’t have the same

blacksmiths work as you did in

the past. You had to make all

your own shoes out of bar steel.

It was all physical. You can buy

all these shoes already made

today and on top of that the

steel companies don’t import

steel because there’s not enough

demand because we’ve got such

a great range of factory made

shoes.

What did the average day

look like when you started?

I would make shoes from

about 6.30am until 8am and

then have breakfast. Then I’d

go out because you had to travel

to various places, you went to

the property they were on or

I’d go to the stables if they were

training here at Riccarton.

Do you have a favourite horse

you’ve been a farrier for?

My favourite horse overall was

a horse called Commissionaire.

He was the top weight-for-age

horse in New Zealand at the

time. He was something special.

I think he could have just about

put his own shoes on.

What do you think made him

special?

He just had so much presence.

All good horses have good head

pieces, you never see a mad

champion.

industry after 51 years on the horse

What’s one of the oddest jobs

you’ve done during your time?

I had one new client and I met

him at the track on a Tuesday

morning and I shoed his horse

up there. I must have done it

about three times and he rang

once and asked, ‘can you come

to my stables’ and I said ‘yes,

whereabouts are you?’ He said

‘up Buchanans Rd’. So I go past

the number and it’s just a state

house and I thought what’s

wrong here. Anyway, I decided

to check it out, so I knocked on

the door and his wife came out.

I said where are your stables?

She said around the back. I went

around the back and there was

the horse in its stables, which

was a rotary clothes line and a

wood shed.

When did you stop working

full-time?

Five years ago I finished at

Addington after being there for

more than 20 years. I’ve now cut

right back down. I still get asked

the odd time to do some special

shoes. I’ve virtually retired, other

than a few ponies I trip.

What do you enjoy doing

with your spare time now?

I love gardening and I play

indoor bowls on Monday

afternoons for the Irish Society.

We also do a little bit of houseminding

for friends that have

horses and can’t get away for

a holiday because they’re on a

lifestyle block.

I’ve been told they call you

iron grip because you have an

incredibly strong handshake. Is

that correct?

Yes, it’s just one of those

things, I don’t realise I’m

gripping another person’s hand

so hard. The friends you haven’t

caught up with for some time,

they can be a bit tentative to put

their hand out to you.

In your younger days you

competed in rodeo. How did

you get into that?

HOLD

ON: Brian

Wilson

rides a

bucking

horse

during a

rodeo at

Rangiora

in the

1950s.

It was actually at a race

meeting in Westport. There was

a two-day meeting over there,

and on the Sunday, they had a

rodeo out of Cape Foulwind.

They had a big bull called

Pinocchio and the owner put

up £25 – that was back in the

1950s and was a lot of money

– if anybody could ride him.

Anyhow, I did ride him so I got

my 25 quid and that was almost

a year’s wages.

How long did you do that for?

I did that for about five years.

I stopped when I met my wife

Andrea and we got engaged, I

thought it was a bit of a risk.

What’s been your trick to

remaining actively involved as a

farrier at your age?

Well, I still get on the bike.

It’s 1.2km around the park. I

alternate a bit between walking

and biking around the park.

Did you do a lot of cycling

when you were young?

I was only a school boy, but

on a Saturday there was a cash

cycling club on the West Coast

and I won a number of races. The

big one was Jack Davidson. He

had the Australasian Hotel and

was the racing man. We had the

Davidson Cup for most points

over the year and I remember

getting beaten by one point.

When did you find out there

was going to be a race named

after you?

They told me early in the

week that they would be

having a race named after me,

but I never knew that they were

going to have a presentation as

well. It was magnificent and such

a thrill.

Little interest in

community building

• By Jess Gibson

AN EMPTY building available

for lease at the old Redcliffs

School site has struggled to

gain interest from community

groups.

Redcliffs Residents’

Association chairwoman

Christine Toner sent out more

than 200 emails to help the

city council find a group which

wants to lease the building.

However, after very few

expressions of interest, the

association wants to form

either a new sub-committee or

independent group to lease and

manage it.

The modern building, which

is owned by the city council,

has four rooms and opens out

on to a courtyard overlooking

Redcliffs Park and playing fields.

“It’s such a good building and

I’m sure eventually people will

realise it’s too good to pass up,”

said Ms Toner.

She said the association does

not have an interest in leasing or

managing the building itself.

“It’s still important that it’s

managed locally. We don’t want

a commercial user or somebody

far away being in charge of the

building, that’s why I’m stepping

up and trying to organise this.”

City council head of parks

EMPTY: The Redcliffs

Residents’ Association wants

the empty council-owned

building at the old Redcliffs

School site to be managed

by a community group or

organisation.

Andrew Rutledge said staff are

currently conducting an open

expression of interest process to

find occupants for the building.

The occupants would be

expected to have a building

manager who would oversee

bookings, insurance, security

and cleaning, among other

things.

A meeting will be held on

August 16 at the building

for residents, groups and

organisations to learn more.

Once that has been completed

a further request for proposals

will follow, with the results

and lease recommendations

then presented to the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board for a final decision.

Highs and lows of travel

AS I SAID in my last column,

we’ve travelled to Italy so Vittoria

can meet the family. And what a

journey it’s been.

Before we even left, Vittoria

caused her parents a heap of stress

with her first ambulance trip to

the emergency department, starting

on a course of antibiotics for

pneumonia, setting us back a day

on doctor’s orders.

It sounds bad, and it wasn’t

ideal, but it was all okay apart

from unsettling our sleep patterns.

So we were lucky, our pre-dawn

flight on Saturday went swimmingly.

Vittoria was happy to nap,

draw or watch cartoons all the

way to Brisbane where we stayed a

night with my sister-in-law Sarah.

The only niggle was that she

leaked on me because her nappy

was askew but, like for most parents

I think, that’s a non-event.

It looked like either the antibiotics

or time were working a treat

on Vittoria, so we were quietly

confident going into the 14-hour

leg to Dubai on Sunday night.

And again, it went pretty good.

Fourteen uneventful hours.

Arriving in Dubai we were all

tired, dishevelled, probably smelly

and definitely over trying to sleep

in an aircraft seat with a fidgety

toddler. Between us and relaxation,

were only four hours in an

airport and a six-hour flight. Easy

right? Spoiler alert – no.

Our luck ran out 20 minutes before

boarding started for our flight

to Venice when Vittoria vomited

all over the floor in the middle

of a packed terminal. And a little

on my shirt and shoes. Honestly,

what’s the protocol for that?

I just floundered in surprise for

a bit until Laura went into nurse

mode and sent me off to clean

Vittoria up while she “dealt with

it” in the splash zone.

Once we were as “fresh” as possible

and a suddenly exhausted

toddler crying in my arms, we

made our way to the gate where

we were told we could get Vittoria

checked up for free at the airport

clinic and wouldn’t miss our flight.

However, once the “ambulance”

arrives (literally a push trolley)

we were told that a full check at

the clinic might make us miss our

flight – great.

With all the vitals coming back

healthy, and Vittoria totally out to

it asleep, I was offered a difficult

choice; do further checks and

miss the flight or sign a waiver

saying “refused treatment” and

that if it gets worse it’s all on you.

Although I was confident to

sign away and just get to the flight

so we could be done with it, I felt

terrible anyway. So for three long

VITTORIA

& Matt

CONFIDENT: In Dubai,

unaware of what was

coming next.

and stressful hours of the last flight

we thought of all the worst things

it could be – dehydration, gastro,

some sort of never-wake-up disease.

And what does Vittoria do when

she finally wakes up? Sits up, laughs

and becomes the flight staff’s

darling by running laps around the

plane with a huge grin on her face

for the duration of the flight.

Anyway, we’re in Italy now and

ready for family time.

as the Science labs, Hard Materials workshop,

Gymnasium, Theatre and Food Technology room.

Work has begun on a new three-story teaching

block which will be completed next year. This

will provide a modern learning environment for

our students to complement our already excellent

facilities. Being situated in the central city also

means the CBD is within easy reach for teaching

opportunities.

Parents have found that starting at Year 7

facilitates a smoother transition to High School as

students are already familiar with the time-table,

school facilities and the Staff.

There are many opportunities for your child to

get fully immersed in school life. 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. Our

Intermediate students enjoyed being part of

our recent School Production of ‘High School

Musical’.

Catholic Cathedral College has a great academic

track record and our NCEA results are well above

the National average. Our fees are reasonable, we

are not zoned and we welcome Catholic students

from Years 7 – 13. We are in fact, the best-kept

secret in town. Enrolments are currently open.

GARDENING ADVICE

Today’s winning question came

from Glen Parker. Congratulations!

What is wrong with my poor

lemon tree and what can I do

Q about it? It looks terrible!

A

From the photo you supplied, it looks like you have a fungus problem known as

sooty mould which is caused by scale and/or other sucking insects and is

a common problem on citrus. Carefully inspect your tree; especially the

undersides of the leaves and you will see small scale insects adhered

to the leaf. These insects suck the sap out of leaves, producing

a sticky sweet substance called honey dew which attracts the growth of

sooty mould (the black mould you see on the leaves). This mould can

cover much of the leaves, reducing the plant’s ability to photosynthesise,

affecting growth and fruit production.

To treat the problem; kill the insects by spraying them with a good

quality horticultural oil - good coverage is important, particularly on

the undersides of leaves. Once the insects are dead and there is no

more “food” for sooty mould to grow on, it will begin to disappear.

Healthy trees are less prone to pests and diseases so regular

watering, feeding and attention is important. Citrus are ‘gross

feeders’ so apply Daltons Garden Time Fruit & Citrus

Fertiliser just outside the tree’s ‘drip line’ (directly under the outer

circumference of the tree’s branches), at six-weekly intervals from

late October to early December, recommencing late February through

to early April.

SINGER MAX Aldridge’s arrival into the

world wasn’t without complications.

Within 24 hours of his birth, he began

suffering from pneumonia which turned

into blood poisoning and advanced

meningitis. It left him suffering seizures,

causing permanent brain damage and

affecting the left side of his body.

In spite of his rough start,

Aldridge has been able to live

a normal life due to an early

intervention programme from

The Champion Centre, which

retrained his brain.

Now the 17-year-old is about

to sing in a concert on Saturday

to raise money for the centre and

support the “amazing” work it

does to help children.

About 50 artists will feature

in the Blackboard Theatre

Collective concert, He Says She

Says, which aims to raise $5000 for the

centre.

Aldridge, who is a student at Burnside

High School, will perform It Means

Beautiful from the musical Everybody’s

Talking About Jamie.

Director Jeremy Hinman said the

collective, which was started last year,

aims to put on an annual fundraising

concert.

He said several of its performers have a

connection to the centre so it was a “nobrainer”

to fundraise for the charity.

“It is something that is quite special to

us and quite dear to our hearts with the

work they do,” Hinman said.

Aldridge said his experiences have

helped him develop an understanding

Jeremy

Hinman

THEATRE/ARTS

that “life is short and we must make the

most of it.”

His main goal is to help people and he

wants to study psychiatry at university.

Aldridge’s mother Carmen said the

centre’s support during their traumatic

time was massive and she will be

“forever grateful.”

Hinman, who is passionate

about establishing “queer theatre”

in the city, said many of the songs

in the concert will resonate with

the LGBTQIA+ community.

It will involve artists covering

songs from musicals originally

written for the opposite gender.

This includes a woman singing

If I Can’t Love Her from Beauty

and the Beast – an emotionallycharged

song about the frustrations of

being in love – which is typically sung by

a man.

There are lots of interesting dynamics

you get from that sort of thing,” Hinman

said.

Last year the collective organised a

concert with a similar format to raise

money to launch the company and cover

its start-up costs.

Hinman said the concert on Saturday

will be an opportunity to engage different

facets of the theatre community and work

towards a good cause.

•He Says She Says will be

performed at The Piano: Centre

for Music and the Arts. To book

UPSIDE DOWN

MANDARIN, APPLE AND

LEMON CAKE

Ingredients

Fruit stew

2-3 medium braeburn apples,

peeled, de-seeded and chopped

6-8 mandarins in slices

Juice from half a lemon

4 Tbsp honey

3-4 cloves

3cm stick of cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg powder

1 cup water

3-4 Tbsp sugar

For the batter

2 1/4 cups flour – mix of whole

wheat and all-purpose flour

1/2 cup oil or cold unsalted

butter

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 tsp vanilla essence

2 eggs

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 cup and 2 Tbsp milk

can be used to make a variety of

cakes.

Caramel

1 cup of sugar

1 tsp lemon juice

Directions

First clean and cut the fruit.

Keep aside about half an apple

sliced for the final presentation

of the cake. Similarly keep a

batch of mandarin slices too. The

rest can go into the stew.

Put the fruit in a pan along

with the spices and a cup of

water, honey and sugar. Stew

them until you can mash the

fruit slices with the back of the

spoon with a gentle push. This

and the other for mixing the wet

and dry constituents together.

In the larger mixing bowl, first

measure the oil, when using oil.

Then add sugar and beat them.

To the buttered sugar add the

eggs, one at a time, beating each

before the other follows. By now

the mix will be a deep yellow due

to the yolks.

Now bring the dry and wet

together. Start by adding a

spoonful of the flour mix to the

egg and oil. Followed by milk.

Beat. Continue in the same

order. About halfway through

with the flour and milk, add

the fruits. Mix in well, and then

finish off with the remaining

flour and milk. In order to make

sure the consistency of the batter

doesn’t get too watery, you can

cut back on the milk.

Now is the time to bake. But

first lay out a few slices of apple

and mandarin at the base for the

upside down part of the cake.

Caramelize sugar to pour over

the sliced fruit. Caramelisation is

easy, just put sugar in a clean pan

and heat it up. As it heats, the

sugar will slowly at first turn into

a liquid and then very rapidly

turn a warm, brown colour.

Don’t get it too far down that

path, otherwise it will give off

a charred flavour. Caramelised

sugar needs to be poured

warm, because as soon as it hits

anything cool, even air, it stiffens

and crystallises back.

Finally pour in the prepared

batter and put the pan into the

oven. Bake for 25min. Check

around the 20min mark by

inserting a clean knife, toothpick

or a skewer into the cake. If the

instrument comes out wet or

has batter stuck at its tip then

the cake needs to sit in for a few

more minutes.

Once cool, turn it upside down

and see the result.

Striker in pursuit of a

right foot Golden Boot

7 MARCH

LINCOLN

On Sale Now

www.selwynsounds.co.nz

• By Gordon Findlater

NOT SO LONG ago Greg

Draper was finding the back

of the net for Cashmere High

School and Ferrymead Bays,

Now he’s scoring UEFA

Champions League goals and

is even being compared to the

biggest names in football.

Draper, 29, has spent the last

eight years playing for The New

Saints in Wales. In that time

he has collected eight Welsh

Premier League medals, won the

Welsh Cup five times, the League

Cup four times and has won two

consecutive Golden Boot awards

as the league’s top scorer.

Remarkably, last year Draper

played just 1032min of his side’s

2880min WPL season, but still

finished top scorer with 27

goals. He scored a league goal on

average every 38min last season,

a better strike rate than Lionel

Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and

Mo Salah.

“It’s been talked about a lot.

There was a BBC story here

recently where they compared it

to their goalscoring ratios, which

was a little bit embarrassing

when you get compared to the

standard they’re playing at versus

the standard I’m playing at, but I

say it’s probably the hardest thing

to do in football – score goals –

no matter what level you’re playing

at,” said Draper.

His club are also holders of an

even more impressive record.

In 2016 TNS created worldwide

news by winning 27 consecutive

matches, breaking Ajax’s 44-

year world record for the most

consecutive wins set in 1972 at a

time when the Dutch club were

dominating European football

with the likes of Johan Cruyff

and Johan Neeskens.

Europe is also the stage on

which Draper and TNS are now

looking to prove themselves.

Last week TNS were

eliminated in the second round

GOAL MACHINE: Greg Draper converted a penalty to help

TNS defeat Kosovo club Feronikeli in the first qualifying

round of the UEFA Champions League last month. ​

of the Champions League

qualifying stage by Dutch club

FC København. Tomorrow TNS

take on Bulgarian champions

Ludogorets Razgrad. A win

would set up a tie with Maribor

of Slovenia or Norwegian side

Rosenborg, with a spot in the

group stage of the Europa League

on the line.

If they reach the group stage

they could face European giants

like Manchester United, Arsenal,

Roma, Sevilla and Lazio.

“Having the qualifiers each

year you get to go to some

countries you probably otherwise

wouldn’t get to go to. I’ve loved

every minute of it,” he said.

The best one we had was when

we went to play Legia Warsaw

in Poland, there must have been

around 30,000 people there . . .

we’ve been to some pretty grim

places as well, like the Faroe

Islands. There’s literally nothing

there.”

When TNS kick-off their

league campaign later this

month, Draper will be hoping to

claim his third straight Golden

Boot trophy. However, he’s

hoping a new one will finally

help him to create a pair after

receiving two left-footed boots.

The funny thing is everyone

knows I don’t have a left foot,

it’s only good for standing on.

Maybe they’re just trying to wind

me up,” said Draper.

Another stand out season for

Draper would also likely see him

become TNS’s all-time leading

goalscorer. Draper has currently

scored 134 league goals for TNS

– 19 behind the record.

Internationally, Draper

represented New Zealand at age

group level and at senior level.

However, he appears to have

fallen off the radar in recent

times.

“If anyone gave me the call

then I’d be straight there, but to

be honest, I haven’t had contact

since 2012 when I was part of

the under-23 qualifiers. I haven’t

heard anything, so maybe they

think the Welsh League isn’t

a high enough standard to be

considered. There’s a lot of lads

now playing at a much higher

level, but you never know,” said

Draper.

While the striker hasn’t

visited Christchurch since

2012 he still has ties to the city.

His younger brother Jamie is

currently playing as a striker for

Ferrymead Bays.

next week’s semi-finals.

After a patchy start to the

season, which included a 12-40

loss to St Thomas’, CBHS have

turned their season around with

impressive recent wins over

St Bede’s College, St Andrew’s

College and Rangiora High

School.

“At the start of the season,

we didn’t really know our

brand of rugby . . . last year

we had a few bigger bodies,

but now we’ve realised we’re a

small, skilful team we’ve found

our style. I think that’s what

changed the season around,”

said Hughes.

Two other matches on

Saturday will help shape what

is a wide open final day race

for a semi-final spot. Only high

flying Nelson College (55pts) are

assured of remaining in the top

four.

If fifth-placed Christ’s College

(43pts) are able to get a bonus

point win over Timaru Boys’

High at noon then secondplaced

St Andrew’s (48pts)

will need to secure at least one

point from their trip to play

third-placed St Bede’s (47pts)

at 2.45pm. A loss for St Bede’s

could also see them slip outside

the top four.

The UC Championship final

is set to be played at Rugby Park

or Trafalgar Park in Nelson,

depending on which team is the

top seed.

• By Gordon Findlater

A PASSION for rugby league is

still well and truly alive in one

on Canterbury’s most prolific

players through the 1990s.

Aaron Whittaker, 51, is the

junior vice president and is also

on the senior committees at

the Currumbin Eagles club on

the Gold Coast. He can even

be found strapping the club’s A

grade players before kick-off on

Saturdays. Remarkably he was

still running on for the team as

recently as three years ago when

he played in one of his most

memorable matches.

They were struggling at the

time, so I played a few games

. . . my son Jackson was 18 at the

time and playing a grade, so I got

the privilege to play alongside

him,” said Whittaker.

“It was a pretty proud moment

that’s for sure.”

In the prime of his playing days

the halfback won the Pat Smith

Trophy six times – four with the

Halswell Hornets and two with

the Riccarton Knights. He was

a key cog in Frank Endacott’s

Canterbury team of the 1990s.

In 1993 he scored seven tries in

eight games to help Canterbury

win the national competition

which included a famous 36-12

thrashing of Auckland in the

grand final in front of 10,000

people at Addington Showgrounds.

Whittaker also scored

a try in Canterbury’s 18-10 defeat

of Great Britain in 1990.

Whittaker’s performance at

club and provincial level earned

him a number of caps with the

Kiwis. He was part of the Kiwis’

squad to tour Britain and France

in 1993 and the tour of Papua

New Guinea in 1994. He says

representing New Zealand is one

of his greatest memories and

describes himself as being “lucky

to sneak in between legends like

Gary Freeman and Stacey Jones.”

“I just find myself very fortunate

to be able to don the black and

white jersey . . . you bleed black

and white. You put that jersey on

and you just seem to turn into a

superhero,” said Whittaker.

Things could have panned out

differently for Whittaker. As a

teenager he was also a formidable

tennis player. He represented

Canterbury and played national

age group tournaments before

deciding to concentrate on league

as a 16-year-old.

great beer,

great food and

great service

Part of that decision may have

been influenced by a dusting up

he received at Wilding Park by

one of his future Kiwi teammates.

“I actually ended up playing

against Matthew Ridge at one

tournament. He was a very good

tennis player in his day. He

cleaned me up,” said Whittaker.

In 1988 Whittaker played

his debut season for Halswell’s

premier side which went onto

win the Pat Smith Trophy by

defeating Marist-Western 24-12.

The 2002 final saw Whittaker

smash two Canterbury Rugby

League records, for most points

and most tries in a final. He

scored five tries and 32 points in

the Riccarton’s 54-14 win over

the Linwood Keas.

Whittaker says some of his

most gruelling individual matchups

came during his early club

years against players he went

onto become teammates with in

Canterbury.

“I always had my tussles and

we’d become great mates off the

field and after rugby league. One

of those guys was Mark Nixon.

I always had great tussles with

him, and even guys like Shane Te

Huia,” said Whittaker.

He believes that ability of club

rivals to come together in red

and black played a pivotal role in

Canterbury’s success at the time.

“Even though we played

against each other in club footy,

we had camaraderie and came

together to do it for each other.

great bevvies

PROLIFIC:

Aaron

Whittaker

played in

a Warriors

trial

match at

Lancaster

Park in

1996.

Frank (Endacott) had us humming,”

said Whittaker.

The team were also partial to

the odd prank. While in a training

camp Whittaker remembers

a player leaving their accommodation

to visit family. While

he was away the players filled a

condom with condensed milk

which they then left planted on

the player’s bed.

“He came back and then went

down to Frank [Endacott] and he

said Frank, look what someone’s

left on my bed this is not good

enough . . . so Frank went and got

the condom and put his finger in

the condensed milk because he

was in on it as well. He took a bit

of a lick on his finger and he said

well it isn’t mine.”

In 1996 Whittaker was

reunited with Endacott when he

captained the Auckland Warriors

reserve grade side to the 1996

grand final, scoring a try and two

goals in a 12-14 loss to Cronulla.

With Endacott taking over

the first-grade reins midway

through 1997, Whittaker made

his premiership debut by coming

off the bench in a late-season win

over Adelaide. In 1998 Whittaker

started for six straight rounds in

the NRL.

After his playing days

Whittaker coached at Halswell

and also refereed in Christchurch

at junior and premier level. He

has lived on the Gold Coast since

2009 and recently purchased a

Jim’s Mowing franchise.

Will Willi still go

to the box kick?

AS A PROUD Cantabrian I

should be stoked that Willi

Heinz, who played more than 50

matches for both the Crusaders

and Canterbury appears to

be one step closer to making

England’s squad for the Rugby

World Cup.

The 32-year-old has survived

the latest cut from England

coach Eddie Jones, who named

Heinz in his 33-man-squad

ahead of their upcoming World

Cup warm-up match against

Wales on Monday.

Unfortunately, my brain is yet

to block out the memories

of his execution of

the worst option in all

of rugby – the box kick

– and single-handily

handing the Waratahs

the title in an ill-fated

2014 Super Rugby final

whenever I think of

Heinz.

Most who recount

the 32-33 loss in Sydney will

point to the 78th-minute penalty

given away by Richie Mc-

Caw which gave the Waratahs

the penalty kick which would

see them win the game. It’s one

of the only chinks people will

point out in the All Black and

Crusaders armour. However, the

blame should never have been

thrown at Richie. We need to

put the record straight . . . let’s

rewind.

On the 75-minute mark

the Waratahs lead 30-29, but

concede a penalty. Kieran Read

points towards the sticks and

Colin Slade slots an easy three

points to give the Crusaders a

32-30 lead.

From here the Crusaders

retain possession at the kick-off.

Their world-class forward pack

hold onto possession

for the final four

minutes and Todd

Blackadder is remembered as

true legend by everyone after

winning the Super Rugby title

as a coach . . . we’ll that’s at least

what we thought was going to

happen.

In reality, Jimmy Tupou

gathers from the restart before

every television set the upper

South Island is subject to a hurl

of abuse as Heinz makes the

absurd decision to box kick. Not

only that, it goes out on the full

giving the Waratahs an attacking

line-out in the Crusaders

half.

However, in the 77thminute

Sam Whitelock

comes to the rescue and

wins the line-out. We’re

left thinking: “Yes, this is

our night,” but Heinz has

other idea . . . he once

again goes to the box

kick and gives possession

away for the second time

in less than a minute.

This time he keeps it in the field

of play, but presents Kurtley

Beale with an easy gather without

pressure – a better gift than

any coke dealer in Sydney could

offer the Wallaby. The Waratahs

go onto win a penalty out of

McCaw and the rest is history.

Should England fans fear for

the same kind of mind explosion?

In a recent interview with The

Daily Telegraph in Britain Heinz

said: “I didn’t box kick a whole

lot back in Canterbury and

with the Crusaders… I learned

pretty quickly that you’ve got to

have a decent box kick up in the

Premiership.”

Good luck with making the

World Cup squad Willie, if you

run into the All Blacks at some

stage go to the trusty box kick.

Dressing your

property up for sale

Your house is on the market and you hope to get a good price. While

market performance will largely influence this, presenting your home

at its best will help.

First impressions count from the

moment potential buyers view a

property from the street to the moment

they walk through the front door.

Weed the garden, cut back unruly

shrubs and prune trees where needed.

Kill off weeds in the lawn, sprinkle grass

seed over bald patches and fertilise the

lawn.

Indoors, tidy up. Get rid of excess

or bulky furniture, toys, books, hobby

items or fitness equipment and if too

many photos on the wall pack these

away so the home looks roomy.

If there is a gap or a room needs

enhancing, look at what you have. A

piece of furniture might be painted up

or an old leather bound book popped

on the coffee table. Shelves will also add

depth to a narrow space while mirrors

may give the illusion of a larger space. In

entryways, add an easy chair, small table,

bookcase or large vase.

Awkward spaces such as coved

ceilings in attics or upstairs rooms might

be converted into storage shelving and

the room given a purpose as an office,

playroom or extra bedroom so viewers

can see how the room might be used.

Stow possessions neatly in containers,

shelving or tidily in cupboards;

highlighting the storage potential within

the home, ensuring it is clean and tidy

for viewing at any time.

Move the pets outside as not all buyers

will be pet lovers while some may suffer

pet allergies putting them off a house if

they see a pet inside.

If parts of the house look tired,

NEW LISTINGS

consider renovating by painting walls,

replacing worn carpet, or modernising

the kitchen, bathroom and toilet;

rooms that should sparkle. Replace

tired cabinetry, or the benches and

cupboard/drawer fronts then update old

toilets, showers or kitchen appliances.

Modernising these rooms can lift the

final selling price.

Use consistent and light paint

colours throughout for balance and

seamlessness, making the house appear

more spacious. An effect that is increased

when walls and curtains share the same

or a similar colour.

Consider the personality and purpose

of a room. Bright colours lift living areas

especially if large and open. However,

bedrooms are suited to calmer softer

colours with just a touch of bold. Layer

bedding or use throws for effect along

with cushions or a stuffed toy in a

children’s room.

With curtaining, smaller patterns

or plain fabrics are the rule for smaller

rooms whereas larger patterns make

spacious areas cosier. If blinds or drapes

are past their best, replace these even if it

is only with neutral cotton curtains. The

effect will be worth it.

Eco-friendly features will also add

value for some buyers though not

universally, however earthy natural

colours and features are popular.

Consider who your target buyers are

likely to be and what will appeal to them.

Enrolment

Applications

for 2020

From 2020, enrolment of children at the above schools is governed by an enrolment scheme,

details of which are available at the office of each school. The schools are Mairehau High school,

Hillmorton High School, Haeata Community Campus and Linwood College.

Applications for 2020 out of zone places at these schools are now invited for students. You may

wish to check with a school you are interested in to see whether there are any actual vacancies for

students living outside of the zone.

The deadline for receiving applications for out of zone students is 4pm on Monday August 19th. If a

ballot is required for out of zone places, this will take place on Wednesday August 21st. Parents will

be informed of the outcome of any ballot by August 23rd.

If you live in the school zone of one of these schools and have not yet signalled your intention to

enrol your child at the school, it would be appreciated if you could do this immediately to help plan

appropriately.

Each school has the appropriate application form and these can be obtained from the school office.

PERMITTED TEMPORARY DEPOTS

AND STORAGE FACILITIES

Under Clause 8(3)(a) of the Canterbury Earthquake

(Resource Management Act Permitted Activities) Order 2011

Despite anything to the contrary in the Christchurch City Plan the activities listed below

are permitted activities in the specified locations if they comply with the prescribed

standards:

1. ACTIVITY: Temporary use of the application site for storage of fill material for

the reinstatement of the reinforced slope below 32A Kinsey Terrace.

LOCATION: 230 Pages Road - The specific location of this activity is south east

of the Breezes Road/Bexley Road/Bridge Road/Dyers Road roundabout.

APPLICANT: Shaun Coakley

REFERENCE NO: RMA/2019/1169

STANDARDS:

1. The activity must proceed in general accordance with the information submitted

to the Council on 28 May 2019 and the additional information received through

email on 10, 12 and 14 June 2019.

2. The use of the site for the storage of fill and excavated material associated with

the land remediation at 32A Kinsey Terrace shall cease by 22 November 2019. All

material from this project shall be removed by this date.

3. Adequate dust control measures must be in place at all times so as to minimise

any nuisance to neighbouring areas. Appropriate equipment (e.g. water hose,

sprinkler system) shall be available on site at all times and used whenever

required by adverse conditions (windy weather, etc) as well as to reduce dust

emission from traffic within the site.

4. The activity must not create any significant adverse effects (relating, but

not limited to, noise, dust, mud, light spill, odour, traffic generation, refuse

disposal, animal control and visual amenity) that will, in the opinion of a

Council Compliance Officer or Environmental Health Officer, cause nuisance for

occupiers of surrounding sites.

Note: If any significant adverse effects do arise, then the Council can impose

additional requirements or conditions to avoid, remedy or mitigate those adverse

effects.

The general Standards for Permitted Temporary Accommodation and Temporary Depots

and Storage Facilities can be viewed on the Temporary Accommodation page of the

Council’s website at www.ccc.govt.nz/tempaccomm.

Any temporary activity established under these provisions shall not create or give

rise to any existing use right in respect of any land, activity, or structure (refer clause

5(3) of the Canterbury Earthquake (Resource Management ActPermitted Activities)

Order 2011).

If you have any questions or would like more information about the activities listed

above please phone 941 8999 and ask to speak to the Duty Planner.
