A MAN whose classic car was

hit by a police vehicle claims he

only heard sirens seconds before

impact.

Danny Valentine is expecting

his much-loved 1965 Buick Electra

convertible will be writtenoff

following a crash at the

intersection of

Linwood Ave

and Dyers Rd

on Monday

afternoon.

The police

car was

responding

to call for

back-up from

St John when it

hit the Buick,

which spun multiple times before

hitting a traffic light pole.

While Mr Valentine calls the

incident “unfortunate” and that

he doesn’t “begrudge” police

for the incident, he is “very

confident” that he only heard the

sirens seconds before impact.

The only thing I would say

is that I am very confident that

I only heard the sirens turn on

seconds before impact. Because it

is quite a large, open intersection,

if the police car had of been running

sirens leading up to it, I am

confident that I would have heard

that going through. It sounded to

me that the sirens were activated,

he could have already been inside

the intersection and then the collision

happened.”

He also raised concerns about

the potential speed the police

vehicle may have been going.

“My Buick is an extremely big,

heavy car and I only drive that

thing at a cruising speed, that’s

the type of car it is. I am confident

that I don’t even know if I had

being going 50km/h . . . but the

impact was such that it threw this

big heavy car around in circles, I

don’t know how many times, and

backwards into the lamp post at a

hell of a force. I can only surmise

that the police car was already

doing some pace, but what that

win over Rangiora High School.

However, seventh-placed Christ’s

College had a game in hand and

an outside chance of bumping St

Andrew’s out of the top four.

St Andrew’s failed to get a point

speed was, I’m no expert.”

It was the first time Mr Valentine,

owner of bar Retropoliton

Social, had used the car in five

months. He had just fuelled up

with 100-litres of petrol before the

tank was ruptured in the crash.

He purchased the car four or

five years ago after always having a

passion for owning a car that was

older than him and to see the damage

was “truly heartbreaking.”

Mr Valentine was taken to

hospital after the crash and discharged

that night. He still has a

sore back from the accident and

from the final three rounds of

the competition with losses to

Christchurch Boys’ High (5-36),

Christ’s (10-28) and St Bede’s

College (3-31). But Christ’s won

four straight games and earned a

bonus point in each. St Andrew’s

and Christ’s finished level on 48

points, but Christ’s leaped into

fourth and the semi-final because

they won the round-robin match

between the two sides.

Police warn people

not to help

Liam Strickland

•From page 1

Canterbury Acting District

Commander Mike Johnson said

police believe Strickland is being

assisted by others.

“We reiterate that anyone assisting

or harbouring Strickland

should be aware they are committing

an offence punishable

by imprisonment. Strickland is

considered dangerous

and should not be approached,”

he said.

Strickland was

already wanted

after cutting of

his electronicallymonitored

bracelet

while on bail for a

litany of charges. He

is 182cm tall and has

tattoos on his forehead

and right cheek.

A forensic

examination of the stolen white

van linked to the incident was

completed on Monday.

On Tuesday, police closed off

the scene again to re-enact the

incident for evidential purposes.

A death notice for Mr Amies,

who was a father-of-four,

said he was “tragically, and

unexpectedly, taken too soon”

and called him a beloved son

and uncle and loved father and

brother.

Prior to stealing the white van,

Strickland was in a vehicle with

convicted attempted kidnapper,

Marcel Sydney Geros.

Only the week prior, Geros

had escaped a jail sentence for

attempting to kidnap and assault

a jogger in September

last year.

Instead, he was

sentenced to two years

intensive supervision and

released.

Judge Raoul Neave,

who imposed the

sentence, said he

expected public backlash

for freeing Geros.

After being caught up

Mike Johnson in the pursuit last week,

Geros was remanded in

custody but bailed this week by

Judge Neave.

He faced a charge of unlawfully

entering a motor vehicle.

Geros told Judge Neave he had

been with the gang members

because he was trying to give

back his gang patch.

Judge Neave banned him from

all associations with the gang.

‘Anxiety, fear and terror’ since

alleged Brighton hit-and-run

• By Sophie Cornish

THE FLOORING consultant

whose van was involved in the

fatal New Brighton hit-and-run

is having “anxiety, fear and

terror” since the incident.

Dean Amies was killed when

Black Power member Liam

Strickland alledgedly ran him

down while fleeing police.

Mother-of-two, Renee

Elizabeth,

was using the

van while she

was working,

laying carpet at

a property on

Shaw Ave when

she witnessed

Strickland

Renee

Elizabeth

stealing it.

Now Miss

Elizabeth has

a message for Strickland, who

remains on the run since the

incident.

“What you are doing affects

people. Yeah, you got away from

the cops, well done, but I’m now

stuck with anxiety, fear and

terror . . . your actions affect

innocent bystanders who are

just going about their day and

it’s horrible.”

Since the event, Miss

Elizabeth has been continuously

checking the locks at her home,

is fearful when her children

play outside and won’t play

loud music at home in fear of

not hearing someone trying to

break in.

Miss Elizabeth heard the

sirens from the pursuit and went

outside to see what was going

on.

She then saw Strickland

getting inside the van, which

had been parked in the driveway

with the keys still in it.

“He didn’t say anything to me

but we made eye contact

. . . once I saw him jump in I just

stood back and thought every

man for himself . . . 30 seconds

after he took off, there was a dog

and a cop in the backyard.”

Miss Elizabeth then watched

Strickland reverse, running

over the tools and carpet in the

driveway and taking out about

1m of fencing and the letterbox.

She didn’t hear the collision,

which happened up the road,

but remembers a woman’s

“blood-curdling” scream.

The most horrible thing

about the incident was that I

never once saw the brake lights

turn on. That’s one thing I

distinctly remember, no brake

lights,” she said.

CITY COUNCILLOR David

East has been absolved from

code of complaints after an

almost year-long battle.

Cr East says he called the

council’s “bluff” on Tuesday

when he withdrew from code of

conduct negotiations.

This could have led to a code

of conduct hearing, but the city

council decided to no longer

pursue the matter.

Said city council general

manager of corporate services

Leonie Rae: “I have discussed

the matter with the mayor

(Lianne Dalziel) and we

have accepted there is no

point continuing to take the

complaint any further.”

Cr East felt the situation could

public apology during a council

meeting in November.

The previous chief executive

Family wins

big with

Smiths City

•From page 1

The money they won will go

towards a deposit on a house and

IVF treatment to have another

child as well as a few other “treats.”

“It’s amazing we’re absolutely

blown away – it’s huge,” Mr

Robinson said.

Smiths City ran the promotion

last year and gave away $100,000.

This year, being its 101st birthday,

management decided to run the

promotion again, adding another

$1000 on to the total prize tally.

Chief executive Roy Campbell

said the promotion was a way

of rewarding customers for

supporting the New Zealandowned

company.

“Our customers are everything

to us, it’s so exciting to be able to

help them in return.”

For Mr Robinson, shopping at

Smiths City is a lifelong retail habit.

“My mum made me buy my first

bed on HP through Smiths City

when I was 16-years-old, I have

been shopping here ever since.”

The Robinson family have

already earmarked a portion of the

money won to spend back at the

Counterfeit notes sweep through

• By Sophie Cornish

HUNDREDS OF counterfeit

notes have been taken out of

circulation in Canterbury – and

more could still be out there.

The Reserve Bank has

accounted for 470 fake notes with

a face value of about $27,300 in

the region since late March.

However, these are only the

counterfeit notes which have

been successfully passed over a

counter – and does not include

the seizure of counterfeit notes

not passed, which is a matter for

police.

Since the beginning of the year,

12 people have been charged in

conjunction with 41 offences of

using or possessing fake bank

notes in Canterbury.

Denominations of $10, $20, $50

and $100 have been uncovered.

Fast food outlets and service

stations are mainly being

targeted, a Reserve Bank

spokesman said.

Attempts have been made

to use counterfeit notes in

Christchurch, Selwyn district

and North Canterbury.

The police organised crime

unit is investigating the use of

the fake notes, which are made

of paper, tear easily, have visible

imperfections and missing seethrough

windows.

Detective Senior Sergeant

Joel Syme said there isn’t one

States bank note

about 21 shillings

and on it is

written ‘death to

punishment

compared to

today. As the

owner of a

hardware store,

Mr Shrimpton

has had his

own run-in with

a customer

particular group of people who

are presenting the fake notes.

“Obviously we are investigating

who is manufacturing and

distributing it. That’s the focus

of our investigation and that’s

ongoing at the moment.”

He would not comment on

whether those who had been

charged were linked or knew

each other.

In comparison internationally,

New Zealand’s rate of counterfeit

notes in circulation are relatively

low.

With the unit being parts per

million notes, New Zealand

sits at 0.8, whereas the United

Kingdom have 127 PPM,

Australia 16 PPM and Canada 11

PPM.

Bars with pokie machines are

also being hit by the fraudsters.

Often a person will try and get

change for a counterfeit note,

usually a $50 or a $100, then

use this money on the pokie

machines.

A staff member at The Craic

Irish Bar in Riccarton was duped

into accepting about $600 in fake

notes, by a couple who claimed

they were playing the pokies.

Similarly, Spreydon’s Celtic

Arms Inn accepted $800 in fake

notes from someone who was

also playing the pokies.

The person exchanged

eight $100 notes on a busy

evening, which went unnoticed

by staff.

The Bower Tavern in North

New Brighton, the Embankment

Tavern in Phillipstown and

Opawa Challenge service station

are a few of many businesses

which have unknowingly

accepted the fake notes.

On July 27, Home and Castle

Hardware owner Dennis

Shrimpton challenged a customer

who attempted to use a $50

counterfeit note in his store.

The look and feel of the

fake note gave it away to Mr

Shrimpton who then challenged

the woman to leave her name and

number with him.

“I said: ‘You’re not going to

do that though are you?’ This is

going to the police; by the way

you are on video, from which I

can get good quality stills off.”

The woman’s whole demeanour

was “totally unfazed” and

“brazen,” he said.

The woman who didn’t

leave her name or number

tried to claim someone had

given her the note when she

sold her PlayStation earlier that

morning.

“She was very up front. She

whipped $20 out of her pocket

and said: ‘I’ve got some real

money to pay for the item.’ With

. . . reading her body language,

she just does it as a matter of

course, I deal with shoplifters

here too and they just don’t care.”

New Brighton Project coordinator

Martha Baxendell said

“a few months ago” two women

worked in tandem using the

fake notes at the New Brighton

Seaside Market.

Four stall holders were

hit, some were hit twice, either

by two people or they accepted

two different counterfeit $50

notes.

Can you spot the real one?

Ms Baxendell said the woman

targeted stalls that were busy,

were run by older people and sold

relatively low cost items, to ensure

they could get a lot of change.

In June, two men were charged

with possessing more than $1000

of counterfeit notes.

Simon Darryl Bryant, 28, a

fisherman of Nelson, and Isaac

Vaughn Wilson, 29, a coach

builder of Rakaia, were jointly

charged with unlawful possession

of 19 forged $50 notes, one $100

note, one $20 note, and a $5

note. Wilson iss also charged

with using a fake $50 note as if it

were genuine. The pair are next

expected to appear in the district

court on Tuesday.

Charges relating to the use,

attempted use or possession

of fake notes are treated very

seriously, carrying a maximum

penalty of seven years in prison.

The spate this year isn’t the first

time in recent years that people

in Canterbury have been charged

with attempting to use fake notes.

In August 2013, Glenn Stephen

Bielawski, 31, tried to pay for

$65 of groceries with four forged

banknotes at Westfield Riccarton

Pak’n Save. He had photocopied

the $20 notes.

District court judge Raoul

Neave called the attempt

“amateur” and sentenced him to

home detention.

THE RESERVE Bank has said

fake notes are “easily detected”

but even some have slipped by

cash security experts.

Westpac Bank has confirmed

an incident earlier this month

where a counterfeit note was

issued to a customer through an

ATM machine.

North New Brighton resident

Hamish Purnell was withdrawing

money from an ATM at the

bank’s Shirley branch on August

2, when he received a counterfeit

$20 note.

After realising it was a fake, Mr

Purnell went inside the bank to

explain what had happened.

Bank staff then checked security

cameras to prove Mr Purnell

had got the note from an ATM

and was able to swap it for an

Germany was a plan

to collapse the British

A Westpac spokesman said in

spite of best efforts to identify

counterfeit notes, there is still a

small risk that a counterfeit note

will pass through undetected by

staff or its cash-in-transit partner,

Armourguard.

“Our ATMs don’t automatically

recycle deposits, so counterfeit

bills can’t be deposited and then

reissued in this way. All notes

supplied to Westpac by Armourguard,

are assessed and scanned

to ensure legitimacy.

Our staff re-stock the branchbased

ATMs and are highly

trained to recognise counterfeit

currency. However, there is still a

small risk that counterfeit notes

could be passed to the public via

ATMs.”

Between 132.6 million –

300 million British pounds

was forged, some of which

was used to pay agents

and obtain British secrets.

Advocate for

Muslim community

in council bid

• By Louis Day

MUSLIM COMMUNITY advocate

Zahra Hussaini is running for the

BUSINESSMAN Darryll Park

says he is open to selling city

council-owned assets if he is

elected as mayor.

“We need to evaluate what

our assets are worth and how

they are performing,” he said

yesterday.

Mr Park will unveil what he

He declined to reveal to The

But he showed a glimpse of

where his priorities might lie

He questioned a city council

decision last year to veto a

it sold stakes in city councilowned

businesses.

“I don’t know why they did

not at least explore it. I think

LEFT-LEANING political

group The People’s Choice has

been labelled “ideological and

irresponsible” for refusing to look

into selling council-owned assets.

Independent Citizens

candidate Sam MacDonald

views The People’s Choice’s firm

stance against asset sales as an

emotional response which was

letting down ratepayers.

Asset sales have been a major

talking point

between the

city’s two major

parties in the

lead up to

October’s local

body elections.

Mr

MacDonald

said assets

like Orion,

Christchurch

Airport and the

Lyttelton Port Company are off

the table.

However, the chartered

accountant said Independent

Citizens wants to investigate

whether it makes more financial

sense to sell off some of the

under-performing assets.

“What we are saying is that

at the moment there are some

assets that are costing ratepayers

more in their rates because they

tie up a lot of capital and they are

not performing as well as they

could elsewhere, such as in an

investment bank,” he said.

However, in the past the strong

number of The People’s Choice

councillors and their stance

against asset sales has quickly

shut down any discussion on the

topic.

Last year a proposal calling for

a review into how much could

be made from selling stakes in

council-owned businesses was

vetoed by the council, with seven

out of 16 councillors being from

The People’s Choice.

Choice candidate Andrew Turner

said selling shares in councilowned

assets would be a shortterm

fix at best.

Christchurch City Holdings,

the city council’s commercial

arm which manages the council’s

core businesses, returned a $192

million dividend and made a

profit of $135 million.

He suggested asset sales will

reduce the dividend, eventually

adding pressure to the council’s

No sign of missing

urn containing ashes

POLICE ARE no closer to finding an urn that was

stolen when a Cashmere home was “ransacked.”

The devastated family is remaining “ever hopeful”

that the urn containing Chris James’ father will be

returned.

It was stolen between July 27 and August 2 from his

wife’s home in lower Cashmere.

Ms James, said her mother was shaken knowing

people had been

through every single

item in her home and

stolen multiple things,

including the urn and

other special mementos.

“Honestly, I have a

spreadsheet of all the

things that were stolen,

it wasn’t just a few

things,” she said.

After posting on Facebook

about the breakin,

the family said they

were blown away by the

response.

“It was an amazing

response, that amount

of shares and exposure, we weren’t expecting that

. . . we’ve had no luck so far. We are ever hopeful

something will come of all the sharing on social

media,” said Ms James.

A police spokewoman said yesterday there was no

update to the investigation.

The missing items can be handed into Christchurch

Police.

Anyone with information or wanting to return the

urn anonymously can phone Crimestoppers on 0800

555 111.

Ram-raid

leads to big

damage bill

• By Sophie Cornish

TWO TEENAGERS allegedly

caused “thousands of dollars” in

damage during a ram-raid and

burglary spree over the weekend.

The 16 and 17-year-old were

caught by police after the breakins

in the early hours of Saturday

morning.

They drove a vehicle through

the front doors of the Hoon Hay

Special Dairy on Lewis St. A

police spokeswoman said it

appeared nothing was taken.

Jonny Small, whose wife runs

a hairdresser next to the dairy,

helped with the clean up and

said the teenagers had caused

“thousands of dollars” in damage.

They drove through the

front wall and punched out the

back wall,” he said.

The spokeswoman said the

17-year-old has been charged

with burglary relating to three

different locations – the dairy, an

NPD service station and a store

in Papanui.

The 17-year-old appeared in

the Youth Court on Monday on

the burglary charges and five

driving charges.

The 16-year-old is facing a

charge of unlawfully getting into

a motor vehicle, but no burglary

charges.

Owner may challenge court decision

• By Jess Gibson

ONE OF the owners of Sumner’s

Cave Rock Apartments says he

will appeal a High Court decision

if an order is made for the land to

be sold.

Peter Foster is one of four

owners who have refused to sell

the abandoned complex at 11

Marriner St for a split settlement

from IAG and the Earthquake

Commission, which was made

last year.

Forty-six out of 50 owners

agreed to the sale after fighting

a long battle with IAG and EQC

for an amount which remains

confidential.

About 70 per cent of the offer

has been paid to owners while the

rest remains invested in a trust

account because the remaining

four have refused to sell.

The High Court is expected

to make an order as to whether

they must adhere to the sale of

the complex or not at a hearing

which is expected to begin on

October 21.

The complex, which includes

49 apartments and the Cave

Rock Tavern, suffered damage

in the February and June, 2011,

earthquakes.

Mr Foster, who owns the

tavern, is unhappy with how the

money has been split as the area

he owns covers more land than

the other units.

About 30 of the units were

demolished in 2012, while the

rest remain damaged.

Mr Foster said members of the

body corporate committee who

no longer have a standing unit

should not have been able to vote

on the sale of the land.

He said if he has to appeal

he will request an appointed

administrator to deal with the

matter, which he believes has

been handled poorly.

Said body corporate chairman

and apartment owner Mike

White: “We’ve had the tavern

valued by a professional valuer

and what he is going to get under

the reassessed ownership interest

is more than the tavern is worth

anyway.

“What he wants is a

substantially bigger sum out of

the total sum for the tavern than

it’s actually worth,” he said.

Thirteen of the 50 owners

which formed a body corporate

after the quakes have since

died and some of their family

members have taken over the

battle.

Mr White said he hopes the

process will be over soon for the

46 owners “who just want to get

on with their lives.”

The rest of us will be

absolutely delighted if the

four individuals would at

least agree to the sale,” Mr

White said.

Meanwhile, Mr White said

the complex remains a target for

vandalism including graffiti and

deliberate flooding.

“It’s not good for the

neighbours or the community in

Sumner to see the place getting

bashed around. It’s dreadful.”

A holiday of sweating and stressing

IT IS HOT here. Swimming in

sweat and trapped inside in the

heat. But that’s to be expected

from an Italian summer.

We are in Laura’s home town

of Pravisdomini, a rural village

about an hour north of Venice,

staying in the apartment where

Laura’s mum used to live.

So far we’ve only managed

to catch up with a few people

and get out a handful of times

due to the constant heat and

poor Vittoria only just getting

over being sick from the week

before last.

You might remember

from last week that poor wee

Vittoria had not only been on

antibiotics but had vomited in

Dubai airport on our way over.

For the whole of last week

she was off her food (which is

a quite a big deal considering

we’re in Italy) and would vomit

at least once a day. Normally

after slowly having a munch on

some cheese or grapes, some of

the only things she would eat.

Then on Wednesday she

came out in a nasty looking

red rash which was all over

VITTORIA

& Matt

her body by Thursday. With

the recent outbreak of measles

at home in mind, we were

worried that it could be

something sinister, so we took

a plunge into the Italian health

system.

Being that we’re staying

in a fairly small rural village

near Venice there’s nothing

like a 24-hour surgery here.

So we booked in to see the

local doctor (who even wore a

white coat) who sent us to the

paediatric ward of the nearby

San Vito hospital.

We were obviously stretched

pretty thin emotionally at

this stage after spending days

stressing about Vittoria and not

sleeping well.

Bubs on the other hand

had managed to have a ball

in between vomits since

discovering a love of the

tarantella (a type of music

from Southern Italy) through

the magic of a small singing

hamster toy. Weird right?

I mean, we’re not even in

Southern Italy and I still hear

Pravisdomini.

times a day.

Thankfully said hospital was

incredibly quiet and we were

seen almost as soon as we

walked in. After a thorough

check we were told that it was

likely down to be a reaction to

the antibiotics.

17

Nothing to worry about and

it would clear up on its own in

a couple of days. The cherry

on top was that it didn’t cost

as much as I feared. Less than

60 Euro isn’t too bad seeing as

we’re foreign.

With absolute relief awash

through our systems we

went out to eat on Saturday

night with my sister-in-law

Christine, her partner Fabrizio,

my nephew William, his

partner Sara and their daughter

Grace (who’s around the same

age as Vittoria).

The village was celebrating

La Festa del Gran Perdon, a

religious festival which takes

place every five years. Over

the weekend there was music,

theatre, games and a massive

barbecue by the church, a

beautiful 600-year-old edifice

that nobody here thinks is as

amazing as I do.

Although it was still hot

enough to fuse your shirt to

your skin it was great to finally

get out and spend some time

with family and see Vittoria

finally taste (literally and

figuratively) a little of her

mum’s culture as well.

OPINION

news online at www.star.kiwi

Intense election battle looming

From the

editor’s desk

Barry Clarke

JAMES GOUGH’S decision not

to run for mayor comes as no

surprise.

He had hinted for months

that he might have a crack at the

top job. But when businessman

Darryll Park announced last

week he would run against

Lianne Dalziel, it was clear

Gough wouldn’t.

For sometime now there have

been discussions between various

business people in Christchurch

on how they can unseat Dalziel,

and Gough appeared to be their

best hope.

Much of that discussion and

planning has centred around

Gough’s plans. If he ran, they

wouldn’t back another rightleaning

candidiate which would

split the vote and give Dalziel a

big advantage to secure her third

term.

Park’s nomination came as a

surprise, but he does have the

backing of various business

people in the city.

Whether Park has the public

profile to woo the voters

remains to be seen. The election

is two months away He will

need a strong marketing and

promotion campaign to get him

the mainstream media coverage

he will need to build a public

profile.

He is up against a formidable

and experienced political

campaigner in Dalziel. She

has also been well-liked by

voters, given her large winning

majorities at the previous two

elections.

In 2013, she polled just over

72,000 votes, 50,000 more than

her closest rival Paul Lonsdale.

In 2016, she received just over

75,0000 votes compared to her

closest rival John Minto (13,114).

Minto, too is back in the race

this year.

Lonsdale, who had considered

running again this year pulled

out of the race this week like

Gough, no doubt to give voters a

clear right-leaning candidiate to

vote for.

Darryll Park Lianne Dalziel John Minto

Dalziel has governed the city

council ship steadily in very

tough times with the ongoing

nuances around the progress of

the rebuild. Sitting mayors have

a good history in Christchurch of

being voted back in.

But chlorination of the

city’s water supply, the state of

the roads and the inevitable

increases in rates will no

doubt play into Park’s hands.

As too might the publicity

that surrounded the recent

appointment and pay of the new

city council chief executive.

Restless people in the eastern

suburbs who have had to put up

with slow progress after the 2011

quake could also be an Achilles

heel for Dalziel in terms of their

support.

Another major election battle

is brewing for seats around the

council table.

The left currently hold a very

minor sway. Seven of the 16

councillors are from left-leaning

and Labour-aligned The People’s

Choice, and while they don’t

have a clear majority they have

relied on the support of Vicki

Buck, an independent, on issues.

But Buck is not standing

again.

The other main grouping,

Independent Citizens, is

right-leaning. Whether to

sell or not to sell city councilowned

assets will be a key

election issue.

Park told The Star yesterday

he is open to investigating asset

sales; Dalziel has no intention

to back any move to sell them

off to private investors. So what

we have shaping is a Labour

v National-type of local body

election here in Christchurch.

That’s not that different to

previous elections but for some

reason this one feels like it’s

going to get a lot more intense.

brigade chief

Bob Palmer writes about

his highly-trained crew and

their need for a new vehicle

IT’S 3AM, it is dark, there

is light rain and the wind is

picking up. It’s cold. The silence

of the sleeping community is

broken suddenly by the sound

of two old air raid sirens, one at

each end of the village.

In the houses of 20 local men

and women, emergency pagers

and text alerts sound. These

men and women respond to an

emergency in this small piece of

paradise. They quickly dress and

either run, cycle or drive to the

fire station to join their team.

the community received an

upgraded warning of tsunami,

or has some tired driver driven

off the road and crashed? Before

they return to sleep, most will be

grateful and think, ‘thank god

for the fire brigade”.

Diamond Harbour has a

magnificent bunch of volunteers

who are highly-trained, multiskilled,

and committed to

Megan up beat after cancer returns

HOPE: Megan Hore and her

family are optimistic about

what the future holds, in spite of

having more than half of her left

lung removed due to cancer.

• By Louis Day

“I MAY not have quantity of

life, but I can have quality of

life.”

Those are the inspirational

words of 19-year-old cancer

sufferer Megan Hore after

having more than half of her

left lung removed because

cancerous nodules were found

on it.

Megan, the daughter of wellknown

blind organist Richard

Hore, was declared cancer-free

in October after battling bone

cancer for more than a year.

However, recent scans

found the nodules on her lung

and they were subsequently

removed.

Her mother Marilyn said the

family is remaining optimistic,

in spite of the challenges that lie

ahead.

“At this stage, the cancer is

not terminal, but there is only

so much lung they can remove.

Once she has reached that

point, she will then become

terminal. There is, however,

hope. If Meg reaches five years

of clear scans, the likelihood

that it will return shrinks

dramatically,” she said.

Megan will continue to have

three-month check-ups and,

if further nodules are found,

doctors will have to remove

more of her lung.

FUN TIMES: The Hore family with Minnie Mouse at

Disneyland Paris.

The Star has been following

Megan’s progress and helped

with the fundraising efforts

to get her to Disneyland Paris.

The trip was part of her bucket

list to visit every Disney park

in the world. Megan described

the adventure in April as “tearworthy

in the best way.”

Megan and her family flew

to France for seven days before

they travelled to the United

Kingdom where they stayed for

a further three weeks.

She is now back at

Canterbury University,

studying english and

communications, in a bid to

achieve her dream of becoming

a librarian.

Intersection

lights

not likely

CITY COUNCIL staff have

advised against installing traffic

lights at the Harewood, Breens

and Gardiners Rds intersection

in spite of a strong public

preference for them.

This comes after an independent

safety review found putting

traffic lights at the intersection

was likely to increase the chance

of a serious or fatal accident occurring

there.

City council staff put forward

two options for upgrading the

intersection and offered the

public the chance to make submissions

on which option they

preferred.

The first option involved closing

the median on Harewood Rd

and making both Gardiners and

Breens Rd left turn in and left

turn out only. The second option

involved installing traffic lights.

A report prepared for the

August 17 meeting of the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board will recommend

a modified version of the

left in/left out option.

According to the findings of

the independent safety review,

which was conducted by Abley

Transportation Consultants, the

revised left in/left out options

is four times safer than traffic

signals.

Another St Andrew’s year 13

student, Victoria Lee, who has

only been playing the double

bass since the start of the year,

was named most outstanding

bassist.

Building for the community

GENERATION Homes

Christchurch keenly supports

the community, sponsoring the

St John Rolleston refurbishment,

a new ambulance, and recently

overseeing the construction of

sheds and a lean-to beside a new

bike park at Knights Stream

School.

Knights Stream School opened

this year, across Halswell Junction

Rd from Copper Ridge where

Generation Homes Christchurch,

are key builders. The school has

132 students with 200 expected

next year and an anticipated role

of 450.

“Mike Molloy, principal of

Knights Stream School mentioned

he would love a bike park

at the school so the students can

be outside taking risks and gaining

confidence,” says Nadja Beker

who with husband Evan, are joint

venture partners of Generation

Homes Christchurch.

The new bike track includes

a pump track, two jump tracks,

and two sheds for bike storage

connected via a lean-to where the

students can maintain and service

the bikes. Fifteen new bikes

will be purchased so all students

can participate.

The bike park will complement

a learn-to-ride park nearby and

be available to students and the

wider community.

The project was kick-started

with a $21,000 Bike On New

Zealand Charitable Trust Grant.

It has been a team effort with

assistance from Christchurch

Adventure Park, PlaceMakers

Hornby, Gotta Digg Contracting

Ltd, MCG Temporary Fence

Hire & Sales, Schick Civil

Construction, Ironstone

Construction Ltd and Generation

Homes Christchurch. All

have contributed considerable

expertise, time and materials.

“Some suppliers have provided

materials. Other tradespeople

have assisted with reduced rates

or for free as in the case of Guy

and Amber from Ironstone

Construction,” Mike Sands,

Generation Homes’ construction

manager said.

“I’m really impressed with the

Generation Homes Christchurch

team and all the businesses

who were involved. They’ve

been wonderful people to deal

with. The bike park’s a great

contribution to the school – for

generations to come,” Mr Molloy

said.

GARDENING

news online at www.star.kiwi

Time to plan your vegetable garden

AUGUST IS possibly one of

the most difficult months in the

home garden – the weather is still

very cold with blustery winds and

soils are very wet.

However, it’s an ideal time for

completing planting of deciduous

ornamental and fruit trees, and

on a positive note, plan your new

vegetable garden.

Vegetable garden

Continue harvesting winter

maturing vegetables and where

soil conditions allow i.e. not too

wet and the tilth (texture of the

soil) is friable (easily crumbled),

you can sow seeds of beetroot,

carrots, onion, peas, radish and

spinach.

Start cultivating soil in preparation

for early spring plantings

by ‘chopping up’ and digging in

green manure crops you sowed

in early autumn such as lupins, to

improve the organic matter.

Raise the level of new vegetable

gardens 100-120mm above the

existing ground level as drainage

will be improved and soil temperatures

will rise quicker in early

spring.

Flowering annuals

Winter flowering annuals

should still be blooming beautifully,

especially cineraria’s that

are at their best in late winter/

early spring. Where new plantings

are required, plant ‘potted’

colour. Try alyssum, calendulas,

cornflowers, larkspur, lobelia,

pansies, snapdragons, stock and

wallflowers.

Fruit trees

It’s cropping time for many

citrus, mandarins, lemons, limes,

navel oranges and grapefruit.

Seminole tangelos that appear

ripe on trees are not sweet

enough to eat until October/November.

Pip and stone fruit trees benefit

from a final copper oxychloride

It’s important

to take the

possible before planting.

Choose a spot that gets

is protected from strong

hate being dry, it can also

be helpful to add some

In most parts of New Zealand,

there is little significant grass

just around the corner. Use this

wet parts of a lawn can make a

significant difference for next

winter.

Ornamental trees and

Site preparation is critical

before planting. Do not plant in

areas that are extremely

wet unless you are planting

specimens that specifically grow

in wet soils eg swamp cypress,

kahikatea. Add compost to

all planting sites and cultivate

thoroughly prior to planting.

Allow sufficient space between

new trees and shrubs for their full

development.

Container gardens

With careful planting and planning,

containers should continue

to provide colour and interest

throughout August. Replant

where necessary with ‘potted

colour’. Before planting new flowering

annuals in spring, empty

the containers, thoroughly check

that drainage holes are adequate,

clean carefully and fill with new

container mix.

Create a planting hole

that’s about twice the size

HOW TO COOK THE

PERFECT ROAST LAMB

Ingredients

news online at www.star.kiwi

ORANGE AND

STRAWBERRY MUFFINS

Ingredients

Thursday August 15 2019 The Star

FOODS 27

2kg whole lamb leg roast

1 bulb of garlic

½ a bunch of fresh rosemary

1.5kg potatoes

1 lemon

Olive oil

Mint sauce

1 bunch of fresh mint

1 tsp sugar

3 Tbsp wine vinegar

Directions

Remove the lamb from the

fridge an hour before you want

to cook it to let it come up to

room temperature.

Preheat the oven to 200 deg C

and place a roasting dish for the

potatoes on the bottom.

Break the garlic bulb up into

cloves, then peel three, leaving

the rest whole. Pick and roughly

chop half the rosemary leaves.

Peel and halve the potatoes.

Crush the peeled garlic into a

bowl, add the chopped rosemary,

finely grate in the lemon zest and

drizzle in a good lug of oil, then

mix together.

Season the lamb with sea salt

and black pepper, then drizzle

with the marinade and rub all

over the meat. Place on the hot

bars of the oven above the tray.

Parboil the potatoes in a pan

of boiling salted water for 10min,

then drain and allow to steam

dry. Gently toss the potatoes

in the colander to scuff up the

edges, then tip back into the pan.

Add the remaining rosemary

sprigs and whole garlic cloves

to the potatoes, season with salt

and pepper, then drizzle over a

good lug of oil. Tip the potatoes

into the hot tray and place back

under the lamb to catch all the

lovely juices.

Cook the lamb for 1hr 15min if

you want it pink, or 1hr 30min if

you like it more well done.

High build quality

for Toyota RAV4

IT HAS TO be said –

Toyota has really upped the

ante with its new RAV4.

I remember writing about

the interior of the previous

generation model, referencing

the hard plastic trim and

low grade materials which

formed the cockpit.

That has all changed, the

new RAV4 is a quantum

leap, premium linings have

been used, soft-touch surfaces

have been included,

and the layout of the controls

is comprehensive but

simplistic to understand.

All this from a model

which isn’t graded as highspecification.

This evaluation

surrounds the GXL

model which still gets cloth

seat trim – yet I believe

these are the seats for

Christchurch. Every morning

the RAV4 was in my

care the temperature was

below 0 deg C and freezing.

It was nice to get into the

relative warmth of cloth as

opposed to leather.

The 2019 RAV4 lands in

eight variants. I evaluated

the range-topping hybrid

in July, and reported that

it was the most sensible

model in the series. However,

there are petrol-only

models for those who don’t

want to go down the hybrid

road. There are three

models with 2-litre engines

driving through the front

wheels only, and two 2.5-litre

all-wheel-drive variants

– the GXL and Adventure.

The GXL 4WD lands at

$41,990 ($48,990 Adventure),

which to me represents

good buying and, as

my introduction suggested,

it is now a car which borders

on the luxury car class

such is its build quality and

drive comfort.

A lot of the latter has to

do with a brand new platform,

the RAV4 is totally

fresh from the ground up,

and it’s something Toyota

has put a big effort into.

Well, when the car you

are marketing sits in the

one of the busiest market

segments, then it has to be

good to compete.

Yes, the mid-size sport

utility market is crowded,

but the RAV4 has a healthy

reputation and solid

grounding.

Under the bonnet sits a

revised version of the fourcylinder

2487cc engine that

has served Toyota well for

several years. While its basic

construction hasn’t changed

a lot, it has been refined for

higher power outputs and

greater efficiency. Toyota

rate it with 152kW and

243Nm, both outputs peaky

at 6600rpm and 4000-

5000rpm respectively.

TOYOTA RAV4 GXL: Significant off-road capability.

That matters little, the

specific outputs are high

enough to provide solid

performance, an 8.5sec

standstill to 100km/h time

can be expected, along with

a highway overtake of 5sec

(80-120km/h), and there are

drive modes which you can

choose from to suit every

driving journey – normal,

sport or economical.

• Price – Toyota RAV4

GXL, $41,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4600mm;

width, 1855mm;

height, 1685mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2487cc, 152kW,

243Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.5sec

• Fuel usage –

6.7l/100km

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

29

When in the latter,

there’s a good chance

you could meet Toyota’s

combined cycle fuel usage

claim of 6.7-litres per

100km (42mpg). During

my testing time the average

readout was listing at

around 9l/100km (32mpg)

with 6l/100km (47mpg)

available instantaneously

at 100km/h, the engine just

loping over at 1600rpm.

Even in normal mode the

engine feels free and lively,

there’s a lot of reciprocating

mass, but it is smooth in

its delivery and responsive

to throttle request. In sport

mode there is a constant

eagerness and, to be honest, I

felt it a little unnecessary, but

it’s there for when maximum

performance is needed and/

or that quick hill burst over

the peninsula bays.

Interestingly, the 2.5-litre

engine is coupled to a

traditional six-speed automatic

transmission; there

are no surprises there, but

I’ve mentioned it because

the 2-litre variant utilises

a continuously variable

automatic. The conventional

gearbox on the 2.5

has smooth shifts and can

be manipulated through a

sequential shifting system

at the main gearshift lever.

In terms of handling,

the RAV4 certainly excels.

and that is a tribute to the

way the new platform is

designed. It is a true driver’s

car with solid turn-in and

fabulous suspension control.

The fully-independent

front-strut/rear-wishbone

system has spring and

damper rates beautifully

compromised between

handling and comfort.

Sure, at almost 1.7m tall the

body does have some gravitational

movement, but it is

well arrested and handling

balance is unaffected.

The RAV4 has surety and

composure. I’d rate it as one

of the best handling SUVs,

which adds immensely to

its surety and subsequent

safety elements. Bear in

mind too, the four-wheeldrive

RAV has several

off-road drive modes which

provide the model with

serious off-road potential.

As much as I enjoyed the

GXL’s traditional driveline,

I’m sticking by my comment

that the hybrid is the

pick of the range and would

certainly be my choice.

Yet, I’m fully aware that

RAV4 buyers want just that

little point of difference to

other SUV owners and, I

guess, that’s what Toyota was

thinking of when it included

an Adventure model into the

range. It has body kits and

an interior colour contrasts

which are vivid and striking.

I’m due to evaluate it soon

and from what I’m hearing

it is the go-to model. Just

as well, then, Toyota has a

RAV4 for all tastes.

THE HORNBY Panthers

host the Northern Bulldogs in

Saturday’s Pat Smith Trophy

preliminary final to decide who

will meet the Linwood Keas in

next weekend’s grand-final.

On Saturday The Keas edged

out their arch-rival Panthers

12-10 in a mudbath at Linwood

Park.

The hosts scored the first

try of the match through

try-scoring machine Rangi

Thompson, but the Panthers

surged to a 10-4 lead after Corey

Lawrie pounced on a loose

ball to score after a Keas error.

Matt Sauni powered over from

dummy-half five minutes before

half-time to cut the deficit to

two points.

Ben Ilalio’s try after the

break put Linwood back in

front and would prove the

only points of the second

half, with the atrocious

conditions forcing both

teams into errors.

“It’s about going back to a lot

SPORT 31

Crunch time has arrived for many winter codes. Sports reporter Gordon

Findlater takes a look at the play-off matches not be missed, and the stars to

keep your eyes on over a busy finals weekend

KYNAN Stowers-Smith will

add to a proud family legacy

when he runs out for St Bede’s in

their home UC Championship

semi-final against Christchurch

Boys’ High School on Saturday.

The 17-year-old is the fourth

generation in his family to play

rugby at St Bede’s. The first

was his great-grandfather and

rugby league legend Pat Smith.

The front-row forward played

provincial rugby for Wellington

and Canterbury before switching

to league and famously captaining

the Kiwis in all 38 of his

appearances between 1947 and

1949. The winner of the Canterbury

Rugby League grand-final

each year wins the Pat Smith

Trophy (see story below).

There’s been a bit of stepping

up to that name, but I’ve just

embraced it and tried to pave

my own pathway,” said Stowers-

Smith.

After playing league with Linwood

and Halswell from the age

of five Stowers-Smith switched

to the 15-man game since attending

St Bede’s.

Stowers-Smith was recently

part of the of the Crusaders junior

knights development squad.

However, he’s not writing off a

return to the 13-man code in the

future.

“I’m kind of keeping both

doors open, but I’m being loyal

to the Crusaders at the moment,”

he said.

In his third year with the St

Bede’s first XV the second-five

has played a vital role in the

side recording their best display

in the round-robin of the UC

Championship in close to a

decade.

On Saturday they needed to

gain at least one point against St

Andrew’s College in their final

round-robin match. Stowers-

Smith converted an early penalty

and all four of his side’s tries

in the 31-3 win which has given

them a highly-anticipated home

semi-final.

The season has been a stark

contrast to his first with the side

in 2017 where they finished 12th.

“It’s pretty buzzy, there’s been

plenty of talk around school

. . . coming from that first year

it’s been quite a big step up and

there’s a lot more talk around

school about us. It’s pretty cool

to have younger guys come up

and ask what time is the game

and all that stuff we didn’t have

a couple of years ago,” he said.

When St Bede’s and

Christchurch BHS met on July

6 Christchurch BHS took the

honours 15-27.

They’ve got a very good

nine and 10 combination.

We’ve got a lot of respect for them

and we know where their key

players are, so we’ll just be taking

them as we expect,” said St Bede’s

coach Dwayne Prendergast.

In the other semi-final, last

year’s finalists Christ’s College

will have the weight of every

Christchurch secondary school

rugby fan on their shoulder

as they look to upset Nelson

College and ensure next

coach Jed Lawrie.

Hornby was without key

playmaker Tevin Arona due to a

hamstring strain. However, Lawrie

says he will be back for this

Saturday’s preliminary final.

At Murphy Park, the

Bulldogs ultimately carved out

a comfortable 24-10 win over

fourth-placed Eastern Eagles,

season. On top of the round-robin

title, Southern have also locked

away the Challenge Shield and

recently won the Porritt Cup.

Marist and Harewood shared

honours during their two

meetings this season. In June,

Marist thumped their semi-final

opposition 4-0, while in April

Harewood came out on top 3-2.

On the women’s side, defending

champions Harewood take on

Marist before unbeaten Carlton

Redcliffs meet HSOB/Burnside.

Carlton – which also won

the Porritt Cup recently –

accomplished the same feat

as they did 12 months ago

by winning the round-robin

competition.

However, coach Sally Moorfield

knows that will quickly be

forgotten if they can’t go on to

succeed in the playoffs.

“We’ve been really happy with

how the season has gone to date,”

said Moorfield.

“Last year to go so well and lose

to Harewood in the final should

give us some extra motivation

to get the job done firstly in the

semi-final and then the final.”

Meanwhile, Marist can be

considered favourites in the

other semi-final after 3-2 and 5-1

wins over Harewood during the

season.

Rugby clubs united in decision not to change reserve grade

LYTTELTON, Otautahi and

decision was overturned at a

A Canterbury Rugby Football

Union decision made three

years ago meant teams wanting

to compete in the premier

reserve grade would have

needed a team in the premier

competition from next season.

However, the requirement

was overturned last week at a

meeting between all 16 metro

for Padmore when he takes

Adair pedals through the speed bumps

The Star looks back each

week at Canterbury’s

sporting icons from

yesteryear. This week

Gordon Findlater talks to

Commonwealth Games

gold medal-winning

cyclist Craig Adair

BEFORE WINNING a

Commonwealth Games gold

medal, winning the ‘king of

the bridge’ title was how Craig

Adair defined a successful day’s

cycling.

In his early years while attending

Christchurch Boys’ High

School, Adair and four of his

close friends rode together from

Ilam to school. Just before reaching

school they would race their

Rayleigh Twentys to the bridge

on Kahu Rd. The daily king of

the bridge would be rewarded by

calling the shots for the day.

The other four would be your

servant for the day . . . you’d go

to the tuck shop stand in line

if the winner wanted a pie. We

did all sorts of stuff, even if you

wanted your shoe laces done up,”

said Adair.

After six months of the novel

race something the school’s headmaster

said in an assembly about

one of the boys would inspire Adair

to get serious about the sport.

“He said: ‘Is Mark Nicholls in

the assembly.’ We thought he

was in the s**t . . . he stood up

and then the headmaster said

can everyone please clap their

hands for Mark, he is the South

Island cycling champion well

done Mark . . . we all looked at

each either and thought we beat

him most days to the bridge, this

cycling must be easy,” said Adair.

The group went onto form a

school team which dethroned

Shirley Boys’ High School’s long

stranglehold on the Canterbury

schools time trial dominance.

MARTIN

HUNTER

They also finished second at the

national competition in Levin

where they narrowly lost to

Auckland Grammar.

“We loved it because we

could go out on a Wednesday at

lunchtime for sports. Everyone

else would be at rugby or soccer

practice and we’d just ride out

the school gates. We didn’t do

much training, we’d go and play

pool or something,” he said.

Adair was doing an apprenticeship

at a bike shop and riding

on the weekends. After claiming

a number of titles at the national

championships he was then

selected for the 1982 Commonwealth

Games in Brisbane where

he would win gold in the 1km

time trial.

Due to having done little

competition in the race category

Adair was seeded 35th for the

event meaning he watched 34

other riders go after he had set

his time.

“It got down to 20 to go and

I thought wow I’m still leading,

top 20 I’m wrapped with that

. . . then it got to top 10, nine,

eight, seven, all of a sudden I’m

thinking I could get a medal,”

said Adair.

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

The following year Adair finished

fifth in the 1km time trial

at the World Championships,

but would later be upgraded to

fourth after a West German rider

was later disqualified for drug

cheating.

“I managed the New Zealand

Olympic team at Beijing in 2008

and the manager of the English

team at the time was a guy called

Heiko [Salzwedel] . . . he said to

me ‘oh I know that name’ and I

said, yeah worlds 83, you were

the East German coach . . . he

said: ‘Oh yeah fourth.’ Then he

put his hand out, I shook it and

he said you won, because everyone

was on the gear,” said Adair.

In 1984 Adair finished fifth in

the same event at the Olympic

Games in Los Angeles. After

completing his events early

in the games he enjoyed time

watching his fellow New Zealand

athletes and was also partial to

the Olympic village parties and

even stealing the odd security

golf cart for a joyride.

Following the games he pulled

the plug on competing at the top

level at just 20 and with his best

years ahead of him.

“I didn’t really want to do it all

again because it costs you a lot

. . . I didn’t have any backstop or

education and I knew that. I had

done my apprenticeship at the

bike shop and I thought I should

come back and use that the best

way I could which was opening a

bike shop,” he said.

After returning, Adair created

Craig Adair Cycles which grew

to three shops in Christchurch,

five in Auckland, one in

Dunedin and one in Nelson.

However, the business went into

receivership in 1994.

“It was too big too quick . . . I

suppose it keeps you real because

up until then everything was going

fantastic,” said Adair.

In 2014 Adair was declared

bankrupt following a number of

failed business ventures.

One of his proudest moments

in cycling came in 2008 as the

manager of the New Zealand

Olympic track cycling team

which won a silver with Hayden

Roulston in the individual pursuit

and bronze in the team pursuit

with Sam Bewley, Roulston,

Jesse Sergent and Marc Ryan.

“I felt better about that than

anything else I’ve ever done.”

Adair still rides three times a

week and recently completed the

260km Around Brunner race.

“I actually like it now more

than I did then. No pressure I can

go out and enjoy myself, you don’t

have to kill yourself, you can go at

your pace and enjoy it,” he said.

Following the February 22,

2011, earthquake Adair was

given an award by the city

council for his role in evacuating

a high rise building. He is still

involved with the aftermath of

the earthquake each day as the

sales manager for My Insurance

Claim – an Australian-based

firm which goes against insurance

companies and help people

with their earthquake claims.

“We help people with their

earthquake claims. I get more

out of that than I did in any bike

shop. I had issues with my own

earthquake claim and I know

now how to get the money for

the clients,” he said.

Good storage ideas are abundant and all

manner of products are available to make

homes more minimalistic. While it’s nice to buy

your storage from designer homewares stores,

the likes of The Warehouse and Kmart sell many

simple products for masking clutter. Fabric

storage cubes are a great start for disguising

the clutter. They fit neatly into shelves and

wardrobes and thanks to competition from the

big department stores, can cost $10 or less

each. You’ll also find wicker, felt, cotton, woven

and metal baskets for a song.

Another clever idea, is to buy a cheap set of

melamine shelves for use in your wardrobe. A

set of shelves does much the same job as an

expensive wardrobe fit out. You can move the

shelf heights to accommodate shoes and boots.

It looks good, but costs little.

Another wardrobe organisation is a Wardrobe

Starter Kit from Hardware stores. While you’re

there, check out bicycle storage hooks as well.

As well as being practical, storage products

can make a design statement. The important

thing is to be consistent. don’t, for example,

buy storage cubes in different colours. If you’re

looking for really clever home storage ideas

take a tip from the tiny home movement.

Catherine Foster who wrote Small House Living,

downsized her life to under 90sq m and has

interviewed Kiwis who live in architecturally

designed homes of that size or smaller.

Each and every house in Foster’s book uses

storage effectively to tame their belongings.

Some have done it on the smell of an oily rag,

Selling your property?

First impressions count,

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll know that getting rid of clutter

is one of the keys to selling property fast and at a good price. Good storage

systems can look cool in their own right, and help organise your clutter.

that only has to be screwed together, she says.

Garages and lofts are house vendors’ friends.

The garage is one of the few places in the house

that buyers won’t be put off by a little extra

stuff, but the more that can be hidden away in

stacked crates the better. Consider using flat

pack cupboards that can be taken with you.

The most effective way of using these is to

find a wall where the whole area can be covered

floor to ceiling,”

“Simple carpentry like this is dIY level if you’re

handy, or get a handyman in for a few hours, but

make sure it is excluded from the list of chattels

on the sale agreement.”

Loft spaces are often wasted space in Kiwi

homes. A relatively cheap way to open up

the space is to install a loft ladder. You will be

amazed at what people use the additional

storage space for, once they’ve installed it.

Cheap clever storage ideas aren’t just limited

to the interior of the house, garage and loft. The

Warehouse, Mitre 10 & other hardware stores

sell garden storage to hide away things usually

left outside.

Foldable garden storage boxes that cost

from around $99 can be used to store garden

tools, outdoor cushions and pool paraphernalia.

The next step up is a cheap garden shed for

Pinterest, or check out books on the subject

from your local library. You’ll be amazed at how

many everyday items can be repurposed for

storage at the same time as adding design

excellence to your home.

Ph 03 332 0092

E: cashmere@

cashmereclub.co.nz

CHEF ANAS

IT’S been a month since the new Head

Chef started at Cashmere Club’s

Riverview Restaurant and already

feedback has been fantastic.

“We’re delighted,” said Donna

Hughes, General Manager. “We’ve been

receiving feedback like ‘fabulous’,

‘fantastic’, ‘we’ll be back’. Customers are

definitely enjoying the dishes Chef Anas

is producing. He’s brought very high

standards of product, presentation and

service to our restaurant.”

THE CLUB BURGER - $18

Homemade Beef Pattie with

lettuce, beetroot, tomato, grilled

onion, Ailoi & fries. (Add egg $2)

Originally from Jordan, Chef Anas

(pronounced Are-niss) trained and

cooked in his homeland for 8 years

before settling in Christchurch. He’s

been here 7 years and during this time

has worked at respected restaurants

including the Tai Tapu Pub and most

recently Chiwahwah Mexican Cantina

Bar.

“I specialise in fusion style cooking,

where I combine Middle Eastern

flavours with Kiwi Cuisine,” said Chef

Anas. “I’m pleased that people are

enjoying my food. I’ve been made to

feel very welcome here at the Club.”

e new menu is varied made up of

traditional Kiwi favourites such as

Roast of the Day, Steaks and Curry of

the Day along with Chef ’s new dishes

such as Quesadillas, Sticky BBQ Ribs,

Creamy Basil Pesto Mussels. ere’s also

‘Platters’ that serve four. Piggy Platter

(Braised Pork) and Chicken Platter

(Whole Roast Chicken) that come with

Slaw, Torillas, Dips, and fried Potatoes.

At the glance it’s obvious that menu

prices are extremely reasonable. It’s also

good to see that consideration has been

given to special diets with a healthier

slant on salads as well as a selection of

gluten free, vegetarian and vegan

options.

RACK OF RIBS - $26

Pork Ribs served with sticky

BBQ sauce, fried potatoes & slaw.

“Our menu's will be evolving with

new seasonal dishes, Chef 's Daily

Specials, member offers and food and

beverage matching so watch this space!”

said Donna. “We’re currently working

on a new Children’s and a decadent

Dessert Menu plus we have a have a

new Restaurant Supervisor. Charli and

her team will advise you of our "of the

day" items and Chef 's Specials and

ensure you receive great service. ”

e Restaurant also has special

function menus. From a traditional

spread with Club Sandwiches, Savouries

and Lamingtons through to more high

end with Falafel Sliders and Bilinis, the

catering team can design a menu to suit

any budget.

e Riverview Restaurant is open

Tuesday to Sunday for lunch and

dinner. Bookings recommended on 03
