NINA BROWN has never

smoked or drank and loves her

greens.

And yesterday, she celebrated

her 108th birthday.

Nina, who is understood to

be the oldest person in New

Zealand, had a beaming smile

as she cut her birthday cake at

Windsorcare Retirement Village

in Shirley.

She has been a passionate

“greenie” all her life, her

nephew Murray Brown said.

“Nina was way green before

green was cool. When she

washed her dishes, she would

use a tub of water and Sunlight

soap. Once the dishes were

clean, she would use the soapy

water to keep the aphids off her

roses,” he said.

Nina has never had any health

issues, other than a couple of

sprained ankles from Scottish

Country Dancing which she did

until she was 90, and a double

hip replacement four years ago.

She also never married.

She would tell the staff at the

retirement village: “I’m going

to be the oldest New Zealander

one day.”

Nina studied to be a teacher

when she was 16 and received a

Master of Arts in English from

Canterbury University.

TEENAGERS allegedly involved

in a spate of aggravated robberies

were part of a programme

designed to get at-risk youth back

on track.

Seven youths aged between

15 and 18 have been remanded

in custody after being arrested

for two robberies in

Christchurch.

They have also been bragging

on social media about their

alleged offending.

Youth & Cultural Development

general manager Anni Watkin

confirmed yesterday some of

those arrested were part of its

programme.

YCD provides services to

young people who are at risk of or

getting involved in an offending

circle. It partners

with Child Youth and Family,

Police Youth Aid, the Ministry of

Youth Development and Youth

Court.

There have been about 10

aggravated robberies at businesses

across the city since the start of

August.

Detective Sergeant Daniel

Isherwood said the seven arrested

teenagers have only been charged

in relation to two.

CANCER SUFFERER Megan

She has been diagnosed with

The 19-year-old was declared

Teaching and travelling

were Nina’s passions

‘A spike in this type of offending’

•From page 1

On August 29, The Star reported

an organised group of youths

were allegedly carrying out the

similar robberies as part of an

initiation to be in the group.

CCTV footage shows the offenders

disguising themselves

completely using clothing, armed

with hammers and stealing cash,

cigarettes, alcohol, and food.

Two of the teenagers arrested,

both with a history of aggravated

robbery offending, moved from

Auckland to Christchurch and

were not under any parental

supervision.

Detective Sergeant Isherwood

is concerned about the increase

of teenagers getting involved

in this type of crime to obtain

money, by selling the stolen

items.

“This has the potential to create

a culture where this type of

offending is normalised amongst

their peers and as a result we

have seen a spike in this type of

offending,” he said.

“Those who are pressured

about getting involved in this

type of crime need to think

very carefully about the harm it

causes to victims and the impact

a conviction for aggravated

robbery will have on their

future,” he said.

Mrs Watkin said the teenagers

could not have planned the robberies

they have been charged

with at YCD, as they were not on

the course together.

Services available to at-risk offenders

are one-on-one and each

young person is assigned a youth

worker.

“Yes, these young people are

being influenced by each other,

but regardless of where they

are, it’s going to happen because

young people are attracted to

each other because of their

behaviour and interests,” she

said.

•From page 1

She worked as a teacher

in England in the 1930s,

until she was sent home when

World War 2 broke out.

“Her passions were teaching

and travelling,” Mr Brown

said.

When she arrived back in

New Zealand, she taught students

throughout the war, and

although her speciality was

English the shortage of teachers

saw her teaching a range

of different subjects, including

woodwork.

Nina never drank alcohol,

but Mr Brown said she always

raved about his custard which

had a healthy dash of brandy

in it.

At her party yesterday,

Nina enjoyed a cup of tea

and birthday cake with some

friends and received a handwritten

card from Prime

Minister Jacinda Arden, and

cards from Lianne Dalziel,

barbecues. This sparked a public

by incumbent mayor Lianne

as “panicked’’ and said the

Lynch.

“Garry can go and play in his

long as he likes, we are not going

to go there,” he said.

Asked if the he thought the article

was aimed at benefiting Ms

Dalziel’s campaign, Mr Lynch

said: “We know they are both

very good friends.”

Mr Moore said he stood by the

article.

He refuted suggestions that

he was attempting to derail Mr

Dalziel.

“My issue is policy and if

would tell her.”

barbecues were good value for

money and a great way of bringing

communities together.

approved $1250 funding towards

barbecues.

The barbecues cost very little

• By Louis Day

SO FAR, a lower percentage of

Christchurch residents have

enrolled for October’s local body

Latest figures released

had enrolled, a slight decrease

MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel is

fully behind the installation of

permanent lights at Hagley Oval.

It comes as the Canterbury

Cricket Trust finalises its application

to secure permanent

lighting through earthquake

recovery laws in a bid to secure

high profile matches at the 2021

Women’s

Cricket World

Cup.

Said Ms

Dalziel: “The

international

games will attract

visitors to

Christchurch.

There is significant

economic benefit to the

city through visitor nights and the

flow-on effect that has to everyone

working in the service sectors that

support our visitor economy.”

The cricket trust wants to install

six 48.9m permanent lights around

the oval and increase the number

of days the oval can be used for

cricket from 13 to 25 a year.

It is seeking to fast track the

changes under section 71 of the

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Act. It is working on the

application alongside Crown

agency Regenerate Christchurch.

The Act gives Greater

Christchurch Regeneration Associate

Minister Poto Williams

the power to approve changes

without the same level of public

input and scrutiny needed to

amend the District Plan.

Ms Williams will have 30

days to decide whether she will

proceed with it after receiving

the proposal. If she does, she

must invite written comments

from the public before making a

decision on the proposal within

30 working days.

Ms Dalziel’s main mayoral

rivals are either not in support or

would not comment.

John Minto thought there

was a “poor business case” for

permanent lighting.

He labelled using the Regeneration

act to secure the lights

as “bypassing the democratic

process.”

Darryll Park said it would

be “inappropriate” for him to

comment on a matter which is

subject to ministerial decision.

Cricket trust chairman Lee

Robinson said it has received

a “very favourable indication”

from the International Cricket

Council that Hagley Oval would

receive at least one semi-final

and possibly a final if it secures

new lights.

He said it would be highly

unlikely the oval would host any

high ranking teams such as India

and England without the lights

due to broadcasting agreements.

Women’s Cricket World Cup

2021 chief executive Andrea Nelson

said the oval had every chance

to secure a final or semi-final, but

would need lights to do so.

Current consent conditions

allow four lights to be installed if

the supports can be retracted and

the light heads removed during

the off-season. These were priced

at $9 million to install in 2015.

Mr Robinson said the permanent

lights were likely to cost between

$6 million and $9 million.

more than $40,000 of goods he

allegedly scammed from sellers.

Police allege the arrested

man would arrange to buy

goods advertised on Facebook

Marketplace and when he arrived

to pick up the items would show

the seller a screenshot of a bank

transfer.

But police say the screenshots

were fraudulent and the money

had not been transferred, leaving

the seller out of pocket. Items

included several laptops, a computer

and a bike.

Another 22-year-old man is also

before the courts in relation to an

alleged scam on Facebook Marketplace.

He is facing four fraud

charges after allegedly selling new

power tools on marketplace.

Police allege he opened a

business account with a bank,

obtained a credit limit and then

went to a retail store to purchase

about $10,000 of power tools,

which he then sold online.

Christchurch fraud squad head

Detective Sergeant Don Fisher

said anyone could fall victim to

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

the often “faceless crimes” on the

unregulated buying and selling

platforms.

He wants online buyers to be

more aware, setting their own

safeguards in place to avoid being

scammed and to remember

that police aren’t debt collectors.

Far fewer complaints are

received about websites like

TradeMe, which have systems in

place to catch fraudsters, he said.

“People have to take due diligence

for their own actions. They

see a good deal on Facebook

and are prepared to go with it,

are they going to come to police

when they realise the item is stolen

and hand the property over?

Or are they only going to complain

when they get ripped off?”

said Detective Sergeant Fisher.

“You can’t expect to get ripped

off and then come to police

expecting them to be debt collectors.

“It’s the old story, isn’t it? If it

looks too good or sounds too

good, it is too good. If it looks like

and smells like a pig, it is a pig.”

Safeguards buyers can put in

place themselves include asking

for payment in cash, doing the

transaction in person and taking

a photo of the person, their

driver licence and their vehicle

‘It’s the old story,

isn’t it? If it looks

too good or

sounds too good,

it is too good.’

– Detective Sergeant

Don Fisher

when you meet.

Said detective Sergeant Fisher:

“Say: ‘Look, I don’t want to

offend you but this is just to

safeguard me, I have heard of so

many stories.’ And if they aren’t

happy with that, walk away and

don’t do the deal.

“If you believe you have been

scammed, get onto your bank

immediately. They may be able

to put a freeze on the account

the money is going to. Talk to

someone about it, don’t sit on

it, confide in someone who is

independent of the incident,

they may be able to put a clearer

picture on it.”

Scam warning for online selling platforms

Scammers have even

unwittingly tried to con Don

Fisher.

Detective Sergeant Fisher

got a call from an overseas

number, attempting to trick

him into handing over his

personal details and trying

to hack into his computer

system.

“I got a phone call on my

work cellphone. It was an

actual person, I was sitting at

work. He was speaking away

saying ‘good afternoon’ and

talking about my computer

and that they were working in

the area, it went on and on.

Then he said: ‘Now I will

put you on to my supervisor’

and put me onto another man.

“He said: ‘Do you understand

what my colleague is

saying?’ I said: ‘No I don’t

could you just explain it all

again.’

Then I said to him: ‘Just

for your information, you are

talking to a detective sergeant

from the Christchurch fraud

squad, and while you have

been talking to me, we have

been tracing your call and the

police are outside your building

now.’ Well, his language

was very colourful. He just

lost it. Then he hung up.”

Detective Sergeant Fisher

said it was a timely reminder

that we can all be caught out.

Gang member

jailed after

fatal stabbing

A PATCHED Nomads gangster

who drove an associate to a house

where he was later stabbed to

death has been jailed for more

than two years.

Shayne George Heappey, 25, an

associate of the gang, was murdered

on December 8 after being

stabbed 14 times.

Richard John Sim, 51, had been

tasked with tracking Mr Heappey

down after he was accused of

owing a person connected to the

gang a small debt.

Heappey had allegedly ignored

repeated requests to settle the debt

and various gang members were

out to find him.

Sim picked Heappey up and

brought him back to his home in

Russley, where he was attacked.

Sim previously pleaded guilty at

the High Court in Christchurch

to a charge of causing grievous

bodily harm with intent to injure.

At the sentencing, Heappey’s

family said their lives have been

torn apart by the murder of their

son, brother, father and friend.

Sim, who has more than 100

criminal convictions, was jailed

for two years, three months.

Four other people have been

charged over Heappey’s death,

including two men charged with

his murder who are due to stand

trial in March.

EMOTIONS RAN high during

the reunification of two families

brought together almost

80-years-ago by World War 2.

It was a happy ending for

Brian Wright and his daughter,

Emma Ebrahim, who tracked

down the Cretan family who

helped hide and feed Mr

Wright’s father, Arthur Wright,

from the Nazis during the Battle

of Crete in 1941.

The Star, along with other local

and international media, shared

the story of the discovery in

June, when Mrs Ebrahim managed

to track the family down

within 48-hours, using only

Facebook, first names and one

photo.

Now, the pair are in Crete and

met with 90-year-old Nikos Kalogeris,

the only surviving child

of the original family.

He was 16-years-old when he

met Arthur.

His late-brother, Tasos and

late-mother, Irene, also helped to

hide Arthur and another solider,

Stanley Hughes.

Their family’s descendants

welcomed Mr Wright and Mrs

Ebrahim and they have been

bad girls - the musical

director - tom hart | musical director - cheryllynn callander

Bad Girls – The Musical takes as its starting point the original core

characters from the first three series of Bad Girls on TV. Set in the fictional

HMP Larkhall.

Bad Girls introduces us to an anarchic bunch of women on the edge

and up against the odds - prostitutes, addicts, shop-lifters, murderers -

each with a story to tell of lives left behind and dreams of a better future

ahead, and an entrenched old guard of prison officers out to dash their

every hope.

Idealistic new Wing Governor Helen Stewart arrives at HMP Larkhall

on a mission to reform the ‘us and them’ regime - and finds a surprising

ally and soulmate in charismatic cop-killer Nikki Wade. But both face a

ruthless adversary in corrupt Officer Jim Fenner, who wants Helen’s job

and will do everything he can to undermine her...

Then a tragic set of circumstances - in which Jim Fenner is implicated -

“an exhilarating

mix of gritty reality,

rebellious spirit,

emotional honesty

and irreverent

humour”

unleashes an angry protest on the wing and forces the guards and

the prisoners to their opposite sides of the bars. When it’s clear that

everything is about to change over Fenner’s misdeeds, the race is on for

all the women to overcome their differences and join forces against their

common enemy...

Full of big songs and characters, Bad Girls is an exhilarating mix of

gritty reality, rebellious spirit, emotional honesty and irreverent humour,

that touches hearts and kicks up a riot.

Riccarton Players are proud to present this South Island Premiere of

this gritty yet funny, confronting yet warm musical. Director Tom Hart is not

new to the Riccarton Players stage having performed lead roles in both

Blood Brothers, Oliver and Whistle Down the Wind for the society. In fact

many will also recognise his name having performed (and directed) both

for North Canterbury Musical Society and Showbiz Christchurch - most

recently as Brit in We Will Rock You. Tom is combining his talents and

passion for theatre with ability to whip an eclectic group of people into

shape (as owner instructor of Huddle Fitness) to bring this show to life.

The talented cast of Bad Girls, with a few bad men added to the mix,

are well supported by an on stage band under the baton of Cheryllynn

Callander. The energy of a live band, combined with industrial staging

and clever lighting ensures this musical production, although perhaps

unfamiliar to you now, will leave its audiences with memorable tunes,

characters and perhaps the temptation to be a little bit ‘bad’ themselves.

Council chief

to start

next month

• By Louis Day

NEW CITY council chief

executive Dawn Baxendale is set

to start next month.

A city council spokeswoman

said Mrs Baxendale would start in

mid-October after securing a visa.

Mrs Baxendale was named as

the new chief executive in July but

was unable to start straight away

due to not having a visa.

The former Birmingham City

Council chief executive will earn

$495,000, an $80,000 increase

from her predecessor Karleen

Edwards’ salary.

She will also receive an

additional $30,000 towards

relocation costs from the United

Kingdom.

Her appointment attracted

criticism from inside and outside

the council.

City councillor Aaron Keown

told The Star he did not think Mrs

Baxendale, who was one of 38

applicants, was the right person

for the job.

“She is one of a number of

people who would be right for

the job but we could not afford

her. You have got 38 people and

many of them were willing to do

it for $400,000 or less, which is an

amount that would be a lot more

acceptable,” he said.

However, Graham Purkis

has not been an issue for him.

“Sure, on match day you

can hear it but it’s not affecting

us.”

Mr Purkis said in spite of the

occasional noise Nga Puna Wai

is “nothing but a benefit.”

Euphrasie Drive resident

Lorraine Sellers said noise

was much more of an issue

when the facility was being

“We don’t hear anything

at all. I think it’s a wonderful

set-up.”

Mr Bailey said city council

staff are taking measures in

“We understand the noise

Counterfeit

notes linked

to gangs

• By Sophie Cornish

GANG MEMBERS and associates

have been linked to a wave of

counterfeit notes in Canterbury.

Several people arrested and

charged with possessing or using

counterfeit notes have been linked

to a motor-cycle gang.

Nearly $50,000 in counterfeit

notes have been circulating

since March when police were

alerted to a jump in transactions

involving fake money.

But Detective Senior Sergeant

Joel Syme said there was no

evidence the gang was manufacturing

the counterfeit notes.

“Certainly some of the people

charged may have associations to

different gangs but it’s not a

gang-based investigation,” he said.

More charges were “definitely

likely” but he would not elaborate.

The Star has learned gang

members have been linked to the

offending.

About 15 people have been

arrested in relation to using or

possessing counterfeit notes.

By the end of August, the

Reserve Bank had recorded 543

counterfeit notes passed with a

combined dollar value of $31,160

in Canterbury, while police had

recorded 270, with a combined

dollar value of $16,920.

BUS LANES may be prioritised

to alleviate congestion from a

motorway extension being built

through St Albans.

The Northern Motorway is

being extended through to QEII

Drive and Cranford St and when

completed will effectively slice St

Albans in half. It will also add an

extra 48,000 vehicles a day.

Residents have

tried to fight

the extension,

but all that can

be done now

is to find ways

to alleviate the

amount of traffic

coming through

the suburb.

The Linwood-

Central-Heathcote and Papanui-

Innes community boards listened

to emotional and angry residents

over the proposal at a special

meeting last week. Then four days

later they made their recommendations

and said prioritising bus

use will help. They said this should

take precedence over installing a

clearway. A clearway is a no stopping

area that allows traffic to flow

more freely.

Cranford St was planned to be

used as a clearway once the extension

opens next year. But with the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote and

Papanui-Innes community boards

recommendation, this means the

bus lane could take priority.

The boards also asked city council

staff to look at park and ride

options near QEII Drive.

The decision will now go to the

city council on Tuesday.

Papanui-Innes board member

and city councillor Mike Davidson

said the boards were never going

to be able to create a perfect outcome

Childcare allowances are

City councillors are paid

$102,400 whereas the pay of community

board members varies between

$9864 and $24, 580, chairs

of community boards are paid up

to $49,160.

The new policy from the Remuneration

Authority was released at

the start of July and has been left

to individual councils across New

Zealand to decide whether to adopt

it or not.

The policy was prompted by

FUNDRAISING EFFORTS of a

New Brighton group will enable extra

elements to be added to the planned

He Puna Taimoana hot pools.

The Pier and Foreshore Society

raised $15,000 to support the hot

pools’ development through fundraising

activities at the annual New

Brighton Duke Festival of Surfing.

It has now donated the money to

Development Christchurch Ltd.

CONGESTION: The proposed clearways on Cranford St may

be used for public transport to help mitigate the effects of

DCL chief executive Rob Hall

said the donation will be used

to add elements to He Puna Taimoana,

which are not included in

the existing budget.

“DCL will work with the society

to decide exactly what that will be.

Initial ideas include the possibility

of extra accessibility features or

seating, but decisions will be made

collaboratively.”

All board members apart from

Linwood-Central board member

and city councillor Yani Johanson

voted in favour of the recommendations.

“I’m really concerned that the

plan is actually going to create a lot

of problems on other streets,” Cr

Johanson said.

Cr Johanson thinks the improvements

are not the right

approach and wasn’t convinced

Environment Canterbury would

fund the proposed public transport

lanes on Cranford St.

“I can’t see any likelihood that

Ecan would have the money to be

able to fund more public transport,”

he said.

St Albans resident Mark Wilson

said overall he is feeling good

about the recommendations.

They will prepare the road for

more traffic, but they won’t allow

that traffic to have two or four

lanes flow on. That’s the minimum

really that we’ve been going on

about. I think it’s a good decision,”

he said.

Hot pools get $15k funding boost

“From the beginning, the

development of hot pools in New

Brighton has been a community

project. The Pier and Foreshore

Society has been a champion of the

development right from the start

and its support has helped make

He Puna Taimoana happen. The

donation of $15,000 represents a

massive fundraising effort by a

community group,” Mr Hall said.

By 2017, this figure had almost

the memorandum of misunderstanding.

a learning curve for everyone.”

But Ms Watson said FENZ

“genuinely wants to address the

problem” and has carried out a

series of actions.

Te Ihu region manager Paul

Henderson said “an awful lot” is

being done by FENZ to address

mental health concerns.

“We offer a range of psychological

and well-being support

to people, that is available to the

immediate family as well, not

just firefighters. There is access to

counselling, psychologists, peer

support and a health monitoring

service,” said Mr Henderson.

Coast, including Christchurch.

The region is the only one in

the country to have its own ‘wellbeing

officer’ who is a uniformed

member of staff – Jim Ryburn.

“It is different here. We have

probably more resources here

than you would find in the rest

of the country, primarily on the

back of things like earthquakes

and everything else that has gone

on in this city.

“He has got a range of clinical

psychologists that he can refer

people to,” said Mr Henderson.

Ms Watson is pushing for

psychologists to have further

training to deal with firefighters.

Their situation is unique in

that they face mortality every

time they go out, they know they

could die every call. Like police

and ambos, they will also face

trauma every time they go out.

So they have that combination

as well as the fact that no one is

trained to walk into fire like they

are. Their mental gymnastics

is extraordinarily unique and

therefore their treatment has to

be targeted at them,’’ she said.

Christchurch firefighters are

now dealing with more suicide

callouts that ever before. Figures

released recently by the Office of

the Chief Coroner show suicides

have risen by 42 per cent in the

region, since 2007-2008.

If trauma at incident is

measured by death, then the

city, Wigram and Spreydon

stations are the busiest, Mr

Ryburn said.

Aside from specialised training

for psychologists, Ms Watson

said the union is pushing for

fully covered or subsidised health

insurance for firefighters and a

more comprehensive peer support

programme. Subsided or

fully covered health insurance

will mean firefighters may be less

apprehensive about seeking help

when needed.

“One of the things that make

people nervous about saying ‘I’m

not coping’ is that they don’t

know how the employers are

going to react. They are scared

their employer is going to say:

‘Well you are too unsafe to be on

a fire truck’,’’ she said.

• By Sophie Cornish

GARY DUNCAN has seen a

lot in his 35-year career as a

firefighter.

But attending a job where a

talented and promising young

man took his life is something

that “really knocked” the fatherof-two.

“Suicide

seems to be

growing exponentially

and

I’ve seen lots of

that . . . from

the outside

Gary Duncan

their lives seem

perfect and

that’s one of the

hardest parts is when we experience

death or injury in young

people because they haven’t lived

. . . especially when you have a

young family, it really knocks

you. It’s happened a lot with the

extra ambulance work we have

been doing over the last three or

four years,” he said.

An increase in attending

‘purple calls’ which are lifethreatening

situations, has taken

a mental toll on firefighters, Mr

Duncan says and he is no stranger

to the issue.

Two years ago, his former

colleague committed suicide. He

was in his late 50s with a wife

and two children, about to move

into a new home.

“I started in the fire service

with him. He was an exceptional

man . . . no one knows why; he

never asked for help. That’s the

hardest thing, men don’t ask for

help, they don’t know how to ask.

Previously, Mr Duncan said he

would try and protect my family

and not tell them the things he

saw on the job.

“I would just bottle it up. But

the cup overflows and you see

that with a lot of the guys. They

might drink too much, or it will

manifest in other ways.

Attending suicides has become

the norm for firefighters in

Christchurch, but “it doesn’t get

any easier,” Mr Duncan said.

The trauma of dealing with

family members during lifethreatening

situations is also

difficult.

“To put it simply, a fireman

rolls up, puts out a fire or breaks

open a car. Whereas with purple

calls, you show up, the family is

screaming, their family member

may have had a heart attack and

they’ve seen it happen . . . they

will be asking why we are there

. . . they might say: ‘What the

f**k are you guys doing here? I

called for an ambulance’.”

Mr Duncan says he didn’t feel

like he had adequate training to

mentally manage the increasing

medical calls FENZ staff now

attend.

“We weren’t trained enough to

deal with it . . . we could go to cot

deaths or chokings and as you

can understand, the mothers are

just screaming. Guys with small

children and older guys with

grandchildren, it can be quite

traumatic . . . I think in some

guys’ minds, that gives them a

really hard time.”

While there are debriefs to talk

about what was experienced, Mr

Duncan said a lot of men still

don’t know how to channel the

emotional nature of the job.

the industry at age 24 admits

he didn’t seek out FENZ’s

On the day of the earthquake,

his wife was away and the fatherof-two

had to drop his five and

seven-year-old children off at a

friend’s house, before heading

back to work.

He didn’t see them again for

three days.

He called the tragedy “the

straw that broke the camel’s

back” in his career.

“With the earthquakes, with

the things we saw, you would see

those things sporadically, but

not on a huge scale as we did and

having to leave our own families

at the time . . . afterwards, the

amount of guys that were getting

assistance because of the trauma

they had been through, it was

like one-third to two-thirds of

the entire staff.

“Ultimately, loss of life doesn’t

really come into it, you don’t

really think about your own

mortality, but in that situation,

you thought about it a lot,” he

said.

Firefighters in Christchurch

are now able to get help from the

country’s only welfare support

officer, Jim Ryburn, who operates

in the region.

But, Mr Duncan says a “clone”

of Mr Ryburn needs to be made

in each region around the country.

“He got so many guys the

help they needed, without them

having to ask too much . . . he

would act as a middleman and

make sure those people had what

they need . . . Jim is exceptional,

but he’s the only person in the

country who does this.’’

IF CANTABRIANS want a great

sports stadium, look to what has

been built in Sydney.

The Bankwest Stadium in Parramatta

is a superb example of

what a sports stadium should be.

It has a capacity of 30,000

for sports matches and can be

boosted by another 10,000 for

concerts.

That’s just about right for a city

the size of Christchurch.

Bankwest isn’t enclosed; but

the seating is undercover and

designed in such a way that you

don’t get soaked when it rains.

So we don’t need a costly roof

– and in my view the elements

should be a factor in a football

match, no matter what the code

is.

Bankwest also has a $A1

million underground drainage

system which can suck water out

of the field, so matches can be

played even after heavy deluges.

It is modelled on those used

And that is what fans want.

You are so close you can hear

what the players are saying

and you can feel the force of

tackles.

Bankwest is the home to the

Parramatta Eels, a once powerful

league club, now getting back to

what they once were.

They have made the NRL’s

elimination semi-finals this

weekend on the back of a recordbreaking

win over the Brisbane

Broncos at Bankwest, where

the support from the parochial

crowd is said to have helped fuel

that result.

At Bankwest’s peak of construction

about 400 people were

on site each day to deliver the

project and more than $A60 million

was spent in construction

goods and services sourced from

Western Sydney businesses.

That’s a tip for what should

happen here in terms of Canterbury

businesses. A money-goaround

so to speak.

There’s been far too much

mucking around since the

earthquakes over a stadium for

Christchurch. The sooner we get

one the better.

And the cost of Bankwest –

$A360 million. In New Zealand

dollars – $380 million.

Totally doable. Get cracking.

September 19, 1983

– When the governor Lord

Glasgow signed a new Electoral

Act into law, New Zealand

became the first self-governing

country in the world in which

women had the right to vote in

Parliamentary elections.

September 20, 1954 –

The Mazengarb inquiry into

‘juvenile delinquency’ blamed

the perceived promiscuity of

New Zealand’s youth on working

mothers, the ready availability

of contraceptives, and young

women enticing men to have sex.

September 21, 1834 –

Whaler Jacky Guard and his

family were among a group of

Pākehā captured by Māori in

May after the barque Harriet ran

aground on the Taranaki coast.

Guard and other men were

released when they promised

to return with gunpowder as a

ransom for the captives. Instead,

he secured the support of the

New South Wales’ governor for

a rescue mission. Meanwhile,

Betty Guard lived under the

protection of the chief Oaoiti.

Oaoiti was bayoneted and

captured during the rescue

mission. Four days later, Betty

and her baby daughter were

located at Te Namu pā, which

was attacked and burnt. In 1835

a committee of Britain’s House

of Commons condemned the

level of force used during the

rescue.

September 22, 1906 –

At a meeting in Wellington,

Marianne Tasker and her

supporters established a

domestic workers’ union,

which hoped to use the Liberal

government’s Industrial

Conciliation and Arbitration Act

to force employers to improve

pay and conditions. Central to

their demands was a 68-hour

working week.

September 23, 1887 – In

February, newspapers reported

Ngāti Tūwharetoa’s proposal

to ‘gift’ the mountaintops of

Tongariro, Ngāuruhoe and

Ruapehu to the British Crown to

form the basis of a national park.

September 24, 1905 – The

murder of Joe Kum Yung on Wellington’s

Haining St highlighted

the hatred some felt towards New

Zealand’s Chinese community.

His killer Lionel Terry committed

the brutal act to promote his

crusade to rid New Zealand of the

From cheers to tears

PEOPLE MUST think I’m an

alcoholic or something.

Vittoria loves to make little

toasts, she’ll do it as soon as she

has anything like a cup or bottle

in hand. It’s all perfectly innocent

I swear, but she even says “cheers”.

However, when I took her for

storytimes at Tūranga on Tuesday

(well, I heard a line of the story

before Vittoria rushed off to the

slide, so I guess that counts), she

started doing it with little plastic

cups in the Imagination Station.

There were plenty of parents

around, yet not one said

anything like “that’s cute”. A

clear indication that they think

I’m home all day setting a bad

example and slurring my way

through cheers after cheers. At

least in my mind.

It’s been a quiet and thankfully

normal first week back to postholiday

normality, and Vittoria’s

antics would have almost

been the highlight if I hadn’t

experienced my first serious

temper tantrum.

Through some miracle it was at

home rather than a supermarket

or sombre family event, but it was

the kind that would get talked

about for years if it happened in

the aforementioned places.

The wee darling was already

in an out-of-sorts kind of way,

having gotten grumpy at me after

I didn’t let her throw food on the

floor at the library. But when I

served up her lunch after we got

home it just elevated the slight

whinging to full blown tears and

heavy sobbing.

For an entire hour Vittoria was

completely lost to the tantrum,

wandering the house utterly

distraught. Occasionally writhing

about on the floor or crying in a

corner.

Nothing I could do would calm

her – singing, cuddles, talking

calmly, changing the food or

bringing out some normally

popular fruit. No joy.

In desperation, I turned to

VITTORIA

& Matt

showing her videos of herself on

my phone.

Which, weirdly, worked almost

straight away. She stopped crying

and screaming, picked herself up

and started laughing at a video of

her dancing.

Whether any old video would

have worked is still out for debate,

but even if she is the world’s

smallest narcissist, it’s all good.

It got her eating her lunch and

back on the good behaviour train.

I like the really good behaviour

train.

I just asked her if she wanted

a nap after lunch and she just

waved goodbye to her toys,

jumped into my arms and was

asleep within 15min.

She then slept for an hour and a

half and then was a total angel all

afternoon and evening.

It’s like she’d got all the day’s

upset out of the way in one hit.

Still, not something I’d

recommend.

This was the third year the

event has been held, and Windsor

Gallery owner Tracey Wynands

was impressed with the entries.

The skill level of entries is of a

very high calibre and it really is

a pleasure to see the techniques

and subject content of each entry,”

she said.

The event has been designed

to give year 13 students in

Canterbury the opportunity to

exhibit their works in a professional

gallery.”

“(The competition gives)

students exposure to the art

world, encouragement to explore

and extend their creativity and

develop new skills as upcoming

New Zealand artists,” said Mrs

Wynands.

Students were selected by their

art teachers to take part.

The competition was judged by

Christchurch Art Gallery director

Blair Jackson and Canterbury

University head of fine

arts Aaron Kreisler.

Each finalist was given

a $50 framing voucher

to use towards the cost

of having an art piece

of their choosing

framed.

Rangi Ruru head of

visual arts Kate Rivers

said Georgina is a wonderful

colourist who has

a love of expressive style.

“Georgina’s work shows a gestural

approach with her oil paint

applied confidently through the

use of expressive mark and rich

colour,” she said.

Mrs Wynands said she hopes

the competition will continue to

grow and reach more students in

the years to come.

“It is such a thrill to see the

students excited about their

work, their parents proud to

see their son or daughter’s work

in a gallery and the teachers’

enthusiasm and support of their

students,” she said.

The art will be available to view

until tomorrow.

THEATRE/ARTS

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

AN UNUSUAL dance show

intertwining two dancers with

larger than life-sized puppets

will debut next month.

Lyttelton’s

Fleur de Thier

and Little River’s

Simon Van

Der Sluijs have

teamed up to

explore the

pure essence

of life – living,

loving and

dying by intertwining

dance with puppets.

Mantra will premiere at the

Lyttelton Arts Factory next

month before it is showcased as

part of the Little Andromeda

pop-up festival in November.

The unique concept behind the

show is two large puppets which

will be controlled by professional

dancers Aleasha Seaward and

Mariafelix Fuenzalida in the

original production on the circle

of life.

The dancers are the only ones

that will control them, there are

no strings. They represent a man

and woman...we are trying to

form a love affair,” de Their said.

The concept of the show was

formed by Van Der Sluijs, a multifaceted

artist while de Their, a

dance artist is driving the movement

in the show.

The make-up of the show will

have repetitive sentences with

the concept of a mantra coming

through.

The dancers are the only ones

that will control them. There are

no strings. They represent a man

and a woman . . . we are trying to

form a love affair,” de Their said.

But the show strictly is not for

children.

Percussion quartet to team up with CSO

BEING commissioned to

compose a new work for a

Grammy Awards-nominated

quartet and the city’s most

established orchestra has been

described as a “huge honour” for

James Gardner.

The

composer,

broadcaster,

musician,

Canterbury

University

lecturer and

James

Adjunct

Senior Fellow

was offered

Gardner

a commission to write for the

visiting Los Angeles Percussion

Quartet and Christchurch

Symphony Orchestra.

Described by The New York

Times as “mesmerising”, the Los

Angeles Percussion Quartet

will make their debut with the

CSO premiering the concerto

commissioned to mark the occasion

by Gardner.

The world premiere of his

work, Gardner’s Gyre (Ghosts

with Accents) is on September 21

at the Christchurch Town Hall.

“I feel doubly lucky to have

been offered this commission.

“For one thing, being asked to

write for the LAPQ is an honour,

as well as a technical challenge. I

was keen to draw on the players’

expertise and finesse on many

instruments, as well as their

enthusiasm and, here and there,

their improvisational skills,”

Gardner said.

He said the second aspect

is to write for the CSO, whose

programmes over the last few

years have been consistently innovative

and have featured New

Zealand composers.

Gardner made the “slightly

unusual decision” to focus on

“unpitched” percussion in his

writing for solo quartet.

He said this was: “Partly

because I didn’t want to rely on

pitch or harmony for the quartet

writing, as the orchestra is large

enough to provide harmony, and

partly because I wanted to showcase

the subtleties and richness

that can be drawn from such a

children it will be scary,” de

Their said.

She described the puppets as

having a real presence and could

understand how people could

become “weirded out” by them.

De Their said when she first

went out to Van Der Sluijs’ studio

earlier this year to see the puppets

she felt like she had walked

into a room with two people.

She said the best part of

working on Mantra has been

collaborating with an artist from

a different genre.

“Normally as a choreographer

I am driving things myself so it is

lovely to be feeding off someone

else’s ideas”.

Following completing her

training with the Auckland

Performing Arts (now UNITEC)

in the early 1990s, de Their

freelanced as a professional

dancer before establishing

herself in Christchurch as a

choreographer.

Howard Devoto’s band Luxuria,

and are really hungry to learn,”

she said.

De Their said she loves being

able to employ dancers for her

Both Seaward and

OUR PEOPLE – SAMANTHA MYTHEN

Paving the way for editorial independence

FREEDOM: Canta magazine editor Samantha Mythen

is on a mission to gain editorial independence from the

University of Canterbury Students’ Association.

Student magazine Canta

is on a mission to gain

editorial independence.

Editor Samantha

Mythen said the

University of Canterbury

Students’ Association

having the final say

on the publication

was censoring the

student voice. She has

started a petition for

independence from

the student association.

Louis Day talks with the

student magazine editor

Why do you think it is

important for Canta to have full

independence?

If Canta had full editorial

independence from the UCSA

it means students would see

Canta as a publication where

they can share their views and

come to us with issues that we

can investigate, look in to and

try to address. At this current

point in time, there seems to

be a bit of a push back from the

UCSA if any students want to

write about any issues to do with

them or UC. The process seems

to take a lot longer and issues

seem to be pushed aside or they

aren’t addressed as properly as

they should be. The other student

magazines are for the majority

independent or editorially

independent and that is why you

see them hitting the hard issues

affecting students today.

How has this censorship and

proofing been impacting on the

magazine?

In general there is a good

relationship between Canta and

the UCSA but because we have to

get our copy proofed it means we

lose time because we have to get

it into the UCSA by a certain date

so it puts a lot of pressure on our

students and I feel like that impacts

on the quality of our magazine. It

is just this whole extra push back

with certain issues and I have to

organise meetings, it is just a whole

lot more of a process and it takes a

lot longer.

‘It should be a place where

they can share their views

and gather some support.’

What do you see as the

fundamental role of a student

magazine?

I hope to make Canta a student

magazine where any student can

pick it up and find something

they can relate to. Coming from

that, I see student magazines as

a place where students can share

their passion and tell all the other

students about it. It should be a

place where they can share their

views and gather some support and

figure out issues and problems.

What are some of the stories

that need telling at Canterbury

University?

Ever since I started at UC I

have had a lot of complaints

about the USCA, a lot of people

asking where is the S in the

UCSA? Where are the students?

I believe because of the way it has

been set up after some legislative

changes in 2011 it became quite

business-orientated and so there

is just a whole lot of complaints

from unhappy students around

this. Otherwise we have had

students writing in and criticising

and comparing the new Haereroa

building with the old students

association building. We have

had students writing about this

expensive parking on campus

and whether what we are paying

is going back into the students

and just stuff to do with student

support services and the way

people have been treated and how

the exec runs. There are a whole

lot of people complaining and I’m

trying to figure out if there is any

evidence to this.

What kind of editor are you?

I really like creating a team

environment because we rely so

much on our volunteers and our

amazing contributors. I really

love feedback and criticism

flying around the newsroom

and I would love to call myself a

mentoring editor. I really want to

help people improve with their

writing.

in student magazine

What is the most controversial

story that has been published

with you as editor?

I have only taken on this role

since the start of semester two

so currently, there hasn’t been

anything that gripping, we did

have some things but we had to

delay them because we needed

the UCSA response and sign

off. For example, we had a postgraduate

student who criticised

and compared the old student

association building with the new

one. I went in to get it proofed

and I was actually told by word

of mouth it wasn’t going to go

in and I wasn’t given any reason

or anything and I was just left

wondering why has this piece

been cut out and I had to go and

ask directly why and they said

they wanted more time to respond

but it was really just an opinion

piece and I didn’t think there was

really anything to respond to.

What are some of the biggest

problems with student culture

at the moment?

Personally, I think some of

the issues with mental health on

campus are really a bad thing

right now but that is universitywide,

young people wide, it is

an issue the whole nation needs

to address. There is the whole

issue of drug testing on campus,

currently, the UCSA is talking to

the university about that to see if

we could get that in place.

Do you have any hobbies

outside of the newsroom?

I love skiing and the outdoors

and hiking and going on

adventures, I love photography,

would love to get into

photojournalism some day. But I

guess I have lots of side hobbies

and side projects but I am very

limited for time these days. I do

love skiing and I recently got

my level one skiing instructing

qualification which is really cool,

so I hope to ski instruct at some

time in the future as well.

‘I just want to write about

these people living out

their dreams.’

What made you want to get

involved?

Basically I am a law student but

I really want to be a journalist

because I love telling peoples

stories, obviously, I’m a student

so I relate to student stories the

most, I reckon there are some

amazing people at university and

I would love for them to be able

to share their voices on things

their passionate about. I also

thought the previous Canta had

been a bit of a let down in terms

of journalistic integrity.

Lawyers make a lot more

money than journalists, so why

the decision to pursue a career

in journalism?

I originally signed up to law

school because I am really

passionate about human and

environmental rights. But as

law school progressed and I did

a few internships at law firms I

found out it wasn’t really for me.

I maybe want to be a lawyer some

day, that’s why I haven’t dropped

out. I love telling stories and it

was just from that I developed a

passion for journalism.

What would be your dream

journalism job?

I would love to be able to go

on an assignment with National

Geographic and do some

investigative journalism things

like that, I love photography as

well. At the end of the day what I

really want to do is travel around

the world and find people who

are living out their dreams, that

could just be someone who lives

on the coast and owns a surf shop

and teaches people how to surf.

I just want to write about these

people living out their dreams

and hopefully get other people to

follow their dreams as well, pretty

cheesy but that’s it.

Where did you grow up?

A little bit of everywhere. I

was born in Rotorua and then

I lived in Blenheim a little bit, I

finished my high school years

at Cashmere and then I was up

studying at Wellington and I got

a bit tired of the busy Wellington

life and I wanted to try out UC

and here I am.

WINE 27

Bang for your buck chardonnays

• By Mark Henderson

AS WE (hopefully) banish the

cool days of winter and transition

into the longer daylight hours of

spring, there is definitely a place

for full-bodied white wines that

can complement a meal, yet also

offer generosity of flavour when

sharing a glass with friends.

It wasn’t all that long ago that

many were mindful of their ABCs

(anything but chardonnay) as the

grape was distinctly low on the

popularity polls, while mention of

the words “oaky” or “buttery” could

see you cast as a social pariah.

However, the wheels of fashion

have turned, and chardonnay is

well and truly in favour again as

people rediscover its food-friendliness

– it equally complements

vegetarian dishes or white meats,

and is heaven-sent with a variety

of fish dishes.

Chardonnay is far from a “one

size fits all” wine with a raft of

offerings from unoaked, fruitdriven

variants through to decidedly

fat and rich styles. “Oaky”

and “buttery” are no longer

mentioned in hushed whispers as

fans of these styles eagerly hunt

them out.

A significant driver of this trend

is the range of Californian chardonnays

flooding the country.

The United States is the fourthlargest

wine producer in the

world, with California producing

nearly 90 per cent of that total,

meaning California itself comfortably

sits in fourth spot. In the

US domestic market, chardonnay

is king, accounting for roughly

20 per cent of all wine sales, with

cabernet sauvignon second at

around 13 per cent.

When thinking of California’s

climate, words such as hot, sunny

and dry spring to mind, but with

nearly 1350km of coastline from

its northern border with Oregon

to Mexico in the south, there is

plenty of diversity. It is typically

wetter and cooler in the north and

drier and sunnier in the south,

moderated by the coastal sea fogs

which regularly blanket coastal

areas and inland valleys.

Overall though, the climate is

typically Mediterranean.

That warm Mediterranean

climate leads to powerful wines,

showcasing ripe, tropical fruit

flavours, supple, low-acid palates,

backed by vanillan, toasty oak

seasoning – summer sunshine in

a glass.

The exchange rate against the

greenback means that these are

never going to be dirt cheap, but

sitting in a range from the high

teens into the mid-20s and up

means that many are certainly

affordable, while their typical

power and richness offers reliable

bang for buck.

2017 Matchbook Old Head

California Chardonnay

Price: $19-$22

Rating: Very good to excellent

Rich tropical fruit, hints of

banana, baking spices, nuts with

a stony, mineral hint; light oak

seasoning too.

Sweetly fruited entry, fruit

syrup, pineapple lumps and

tropical fruit, oak a little more

evident.

Richly viscous and oily, nutty

and caramel elements evolving,

with a little sawdust and a chewy,

grainy feel.

Generously flavoured, open and

ready for business.

www.matchbookwines.com

017 Bogle Vineyards

California Chardonnay

Price: $20-$23

Rating: Excellent

Attractive nose, balancing

ripe peach, tropical fruit and

butterscotch with fresh citrussy

notes; developing lovely florality.

That balance is evident on the

palate with juicy fresh pineapple,

peach and banana, yet with crisp

freshness and structure too.

Real zing and brightness, a

minerally touch builds, with a long

fruit salad-like finish.

Lots of flavour and huge appeal.

www.boglewinery.com

2017 Harken Barrel

Fermented California

Chardonnay

Price: $20-$23

Rating: Very good to excellent

Sweetly fruited nose of

tropical fruits, dried pineapple,

confectionery, ripe banana and

smoky oak.

Lush, rich, almost syrupy with

great flavour intensity in that

ripe fruit spectrum with oak in

support.

A little lactic note grows as the

wine becomes less sweet, more

savoury, and gains structure.

This exudes the warmth of the

summer sun in a glass.

GARDENING

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

No time to dawdle, there’s plenty to do

AS OUR recent weather has

served to prove spring is often

very unsettled, but by the end of

the month, temperatures have

usually risen and the growth in

the garden abounds.

There are a million tasks to do

in the garden; all enjoyable, especially

the planting of the summer

vegetable garden.

It’s probably the most active

time of the year in the vegetable

garden. Prepare the area well by

adding in new compost in significant

quantities.

All summer vegetables can now

be safely planted, including courgettes/zucchini,

cucumbers, beans,

beetroot, carrots, celery, corn,

leeks, lettuce, melons, onions, radish,

pumpkin and tomato.

To avoid vegetables all maturing

at one time, stagger your

plantings as continuous cropping

and supply is much preferable. As

plants become established, apply

light side dressings of vegetable

fertiliser to help develop strong

healthy plants. Water young

plants regularly and deeply to

encourage a strong root system.

The last of winter flowing annuals

can now be removed and the

soil prepared for new plantings.

As with the vegetable plot, add

plenty of compost to the soil and

dig it over well to create a fine

tilth (breadcrumb like texture)

ready for planting. Summer flowering

annuals can include alyssum,

asters, cornflowers, californian

poppy, cosmos, livingstone

daisy, lobelia, marigolds, nemesia,

petunias, portulaca, phlox, salvias,

sweet peas and zinnias.

Early varieties of strawberries

will begin to ripen towards

the end of next month. Check

plants for any signs of grey mould

(botrytis). Remove any infected

leaves and ensure there is enough

pea straw, mulch or hay around

plants to keep developing berries

clean and healthy

It’s a busy time for lawn lovers.

The first application of lawn fertiliser

can now be made; hopefully

at the same time as spring rain,

otherwise water it thoroughly

after applying.

TASKS: Get

the mower

out, spring

growth

means they

will need

mowing every

week. Get

plants into

containers.

Sow seed where there are bare

parts of the lawn, add new topsoil

before broadcasting the seed and

lightly water to activate germination.

Mow your lawn regularly to

encourage vigorous growth.

Classical winter flowering

shrubs such as rhododendrons,

camellias and azaleas are now

coming to the end of flowering.

They may require some minor

pruning before they break into

spring growth. Apply fertiliser to

these plants in late next month

and apply mulch all around your

shrubs.

Now is a great time to plant

containers and pots with summer

flowering annuals such as petunias

which are a favourite to provide

colour throughout summer

months. Start your new season’s

display by removing existing

potting mix, thoroughly cleaning

the container before refilling with

new mix and planting.

In the herb garden, remove

any old plants from the previous

season herb garden. Plant out

new seasons herbs, including

those that are frost tender such

as basil. Clip your herb plants

frequently for culinary use and to

encourage fresh young growth.

Backyard art – something to marvel at

WOULD YOU dare to buy a

friend or relative a piece of garden

art as a gift?

The idea that you can make art

yourself for next to nothing is not

wishful thinking.

So if you find yourself at a

sculpture exhibition, or one of

the many garden festivals and

fetes that have sprung up, and

you see a toilet roll holder bolted

to what appears to be a concrete

drainage pipe lovingly smeared

in purple paint, for goodness sake

don’t imagine you could do the

same yourself. Just buy it and get

it home to rescue that desperately

dull stretch of griselinia.

But before parting with your

cash bear in mind – where you

are going to put it; what it will

look like when it is in place; and if

you know when to say ‘‘stop’’.

Art, they tell you, is very

personal. Not so in the garden,

where everyone invited around

must suffer or marvel at your

personal taste on show.

It pays to buy not what your gut

instinct says you love but what

will gel best with the geraniums.

Inside the house, most artworks

would look acceptable displayed

against a white wall but in the

garden you could say you already

have the art installed – plants are

like a painted canvas. So the art

you bring home is really more of

a final brushstroke.

Big lawns thus require fat

installations at the end; intimate

WACKY:

Spread

artworks

around your

garden, give

them space.

corners suit tiny trinkets and

treasures.

Therefore you have to first

identify which particular spaces

need what — the garden’s overall

style and feel is as important as

the size and aspect of the spaces

inside.

Resist buying the art while

trusting you will find somewhere

to put it. Plywood cutouts in various

settings will work well in particular

areas. A dark corner may

best be furnished with something

bright and shiny, while another

vista might be enhanced with a

see-through work that comes to

life in silhouette.

If your haven is bold, funky and

chunky you can’t insult it by asking

a flowery teapot to stay.

Busy pieces of sculpture look

best in simple settings but minimalist

pieces are strong enough

to cope with a little more froth

and flowers surfing around their

shores.

Your garden is a cake and pieces

of art like the birthday candles —

space them out, make sure they

match the icing, and for goodness

sake don’t put on too many.

GARDENING ADVICE

Today’s winning question came

from Bex McNaughton.

Congratulations!

I had a severe bout of thrips on

my viburnum over summer and

Q

seem to have managed it with

spray. Is it likely it will return as

the weather warms up? If so, what can I

do now? And lastly, will the frosts destroy

existing insects?

A

WIN a Daltons Veggie Garden Planting & Care Pack!

No matter how big or small your available space; you can successfully grow vegetables in

regular garden beds, raised beds or in pots and containers. Prepare your soil for planting by

digging in lots of organic matter such as Daltons Compost or Garden Time Vegetable Mix

which improves the soil quality and helps plants to develop strong healthy root systems.

Use fresh container mix for growing in pots or raised beds.

Each pack is valued at over $70 and contains 2x Garden Time Vegetable Mix,

Daltons Goldcote Vegetable and Herb Fertiliser, Besgrow Coir Mulch and

Garden Time Chicken and Sheep Pellets, plus a pair of comfortable Red Back

gardening gloves from Omni Products (www.omniproducts.co.nz).

Many viburnum species are very prone to thrips, particularly in warmer

parts of the country and sheltered sections of gardens. There was a

time 30-40 years ago when thrips, along with a number of insects,

were destroyed by heavy frosts, however unfortunately this no longer

appears to be the case.

Heavily infected shrubs like viburnum usually have considerable leaf fall

during the winter months. Ensure all leaves are collected and removed

from that part of the garden. As spring arrives, fertilise your viburnum

with Daltons Premium Shrub and Tree Fertiliser to ensure the

plant is growing strongly. This can provide some resistance to thrips.

You can continue to spray your viburnum with good quality

horticultural oil. However, this may not eradiate the infection long

term and the thrips can still return.

Finally, you may wish to remove the viburnum and plant an

ornamental shrub that is not prone to thrips infections. This may

sound extreme but there are many attractive shrubs that could

more than adequately fi ll this position in your garden.

Products to try; Daltons Garden Time Fruit & Citrus

Fertiliser and Daltons range of mulch products.

FOR THE FIRST time in more

than a decade, Christchurch

Boys’ High School have three

students in the New Zealand

Schools team.

Prop Ben Lopas, halfback Max

Hughes and first-five Ollie Lewis

were all named in the squad last

week.

The last time three students

from CBHS made the squad was

in 2006, when Nasi Manu, Ash

Dixon and Hugh Reed were all

selected.

Meanwhile, CBHS year 12 lock

Jamie Hannah has been named

in the NZ Schools’ Barbarians

squad.

In 2005, a record five players

from CBHS made the NZ

Schools squad, with Manu,

Tim Bateman, Mason Pomare,

Owen Franks and Colin Slade.

However, between 2007 and

2018, just two players from the

proud rugby school have made

the team, with Josh McKay in

2015 and Louie Chapman last

year.

The phone calls from NZ

Schools coach Mark Hammett

went out while Lewis, Hughes

and Lopas were all playing a

round at the Coringa Golf Club

in McLeans Island as part of

their year 13 physical education

programme.

“About four holes in I got my

call . . . I had Ollie in my group

of four so he was congratulating

me but then kind of shied away

and spent a few holes on his

phone waiting for his call,” said

Hughes.

“[When his phone rang] we

started celebrating and were

quite loud, but then he had to

answer his phone so we had to

stop for a second,” said Hughes.

Lopas could not receive his

call from Hammett because his

phone was broken, so he didn’t

find out until he returned home

later in the day.

However, he still had reason

to celebrate out on the course,

shooting a group best two-under

par.

Hughes and Lewis have built

on their halfback and first-five

at CBHS and are now looking

forward to the rare opportunity

of continuing their partnership

in a national team.

“It’s been a big goal. It’s going

to be pretty exciting to stand

beside him and do the dream

we’ve aspired for during our

whole school career,” said

Hughes. CBHS has produced 46

All Blacks over the years. And

it is something the boys are well

aware of as they look to continue

the legacy of players’ reaching

their full potential.

“You always want to be better

because you know so many All

Blacks have been before you. You

want to do the school proud –

that means you train hard,” said

Lewis.

The CBHS contingent will be

joined in the NZ Schools squad

by four other students from

Canterbury schools.

A FAMILIAR face will return

for the Canterbury United

Dragons when they kick off

their ISPS Handa Premiership

campaign in November.

Aaron Clapham has

signed with the Dragon for

the upcoming season after

spending last season with Team

Wellington. The 32-year-old

midfielder last played for the

Dragons in their 1-3 loss to

Auckland City on November

5. Days later he ended his time

with the club, citing personal

reasons after the arrival of his

first child.

“At the time, it was really hard

because it’s not my character

either. I don’t want to walk

away from something that

doesn’t feel right to me, but it

was a really challenging time

in my life. We had a new born

son and a lot of pressure on my

time and I wasn’t enjoying the

environment,” said Clapham.

The former All White made

his Dragons debut in 2009 and

since then has gone on to be

widely regarded as one of the

best players in the league. In 117

appearances for the Dragons,

Clapham scored a club record 61

goals. Then last season he helped

Team Wellington advance

to the league final and also

scored a goal at the FIFA Club

World Cup in the United Arab

Emirates.

A major factor in his decision

to return to Canterbury is

having his two-year-old son at

home games.

“I want him to remember it

when he’s older, so I might need

to stick around for a few more

years. I’d love for him to be able

to have those memories of his

dad playing at a high level,” said

Clapham.

The Dragons will begin a

new era this season under the

guidance of Lee Padmore,

who was recently appointed

as coach after the departure

of Willy Gerdsen. Clapham

knows Padmore well. The pair

interacted regularly when

Padmore was the director of

football at Selwyn United, while

Clapham holds the same role at

Cashmere Technical.

“I like a lot of his philosophy

on football and I like that he’s

really interested in driving

the club to have more local

representation. I think it’s

important that the club are

providing pathways to local

players,” he said.

Clapham is also looking

forward to reuniting – rather

than competing against – a

number of his Cashmere

Technical teammates who are

part of the Dragons squad.

“Tom Schwarz and Dan Terris

are guys I’ve spent years playing

football against, so it was very

strange to play against them

last year. I’m looking forward to

getting into training and playing

with guys that I’ve known for a

long time and spent a lot of time

going into battle with,” he said.

Klein gets his chance

TONIGHT’S MITRE 10 Cup

for former St Andrew’s College

captain Shilo Klein.

The 20-year-old hooker, who

was part of High School Old

Canterbury debut from the bench

against Manawatu.

Surprisingly, just four years ago

Klein was playing at second-five

for the St Andrew’s under-16 side.

However, he was convinced to

make the move to hooker and the

decision appears to be reaping

rewards.

“He had a great work ethic

and passion to do well – it’s no

his former coach at St Andrew’s

Hands off our plan to put lights at Hagley Oval

THE HAGLEY Oval lights saga

feels too much like déjà vu.

Once again, Hands Off Hagley

is playing its preferred role as the

‘rebuild fun police’ – just as it did

in 2013 before the redevelopment

of the oval to host international

cricket was given the go ahead.

Anyone – particularly sports

fans – who stuck it out in postquake

Christchurch would find it

hard to argue the development of

Hagley Oval was one of the best

things to come out of the early

rebuild.

After missing out on the

2011 Rugby World Cup, we got

back on our feet and kicked

off the 2015 Cricket World

Cup by showing off our new

international standard, boutique

ground when we hosted New

Zealand and Sri Lanka in

the opening match of the

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

tournament. It was magical. The

flow-on effect of people heading

into the city and the half dozen

drinking establishments we had

at the time showed what some

quick action could produce.

However, it wouldn’t have been

the case if Hands Off Hagley got

its way. Now, more than six years

down the track, the group is back

to say “no don’t build lights to

open the door for future highprofile

matches” and “no don’t

let there be more international

cricket played.”

It’s also worth noting this is

the same group which wants the

city council to shift large

commercial events, such

as the wine and food and

major craft beer festivals,

to red-zoned land in the

east.

you, but a day on the razz in the

red zone doesn’t have the same

ring to it as the centrally-located

Hagley Park.

So let’s get with the

that fact that if we want to be a

major city, we need to be able to

hold major events.

The Ashley Forest Rally Sprint celebrates its 40th anniversary this weekend. One driver who

was part of the inaugural running will still be amongst the contenders for the title. This week

sports reporter Gordon Findlater continues The Star’s look at Canterbury sporting icons by

talking with Trevor Crowe

VERSATILE: Trevor Crowe rounds the hairpin at the top of the Ashley Forest Rally Sprint in his V8 Starlet en route to victory and a course record in

1985. (Centre) – The Datsun 1200 SSS in the 1975 NZ Rally Championship, he finished third overall. In 1988 Crowe shared a drive in the Nissan Mobil 500

Wellington street race with Mark Thatcher in a BMW M3, the pair were third and Crowe picked up the Asia Pacific Championship.

Fuelled by dreams – rallying and racing

AGELESS IS perhaps the best

way to describe Trevor Crowe.

More than 50 years ago he

could be found in his workshop

designing and building his own

unique race car or on the track

racing it. The same stands true to

this day.

“A lot of my motor racing has

been to do with dreaming up

some weird and wonderful car

and making it,” said Crowe.

This weekend Crowe will run

his Subaru WRX coupe at the

Ashley Forest Rally Sprint – an

event he won in 1985. He has

hopes of a top-eight finish and

will likely post times similar to

those he set 34 years ago.

Believe it or not Crowe admits

to not being so interested in

cars during his childhood, but

began helping his father in his

workshop in Templeton from the

age of seven.

“I’d get paid to do things like

decarbonise old cylinder heads

and he taught me to drive at an

early age, but the real influence

came when I became an apprentice

mechanic . . . another

apprentice was a guy called Dave

Silcock and he showed me how

to slide the workshop trucks

around the block on wet days,”

said Crowe.

His early days of motorsport

in the 1960s involved grass track

and beach racing in an MGJ2

which later ended up with a V8

engine as Crowe’s racing became

more serious.

His earliest rally successes

came in a Datsun 1200 which he

drove to a 0-1300cc class victory

in the New Zealand Rally Championship

in 1975. On the track

he raced a Datsun 1200 coupe to

many victories. However, a craving

for more power would lead to

one of Crowe’s most well-known

builds – his V8-powered Toyota

Starlet.

“It [Datsun 1200] was really

quick around the corners.

I could hassle the Camaros and

the big V8s through the corners.

I thought if I had something that

was like this, but had a lot more

boogie, this would be a good car.

So, that was sort of where the

Starlet came from. I thought I’ll

start with something really light

and I’ll make everything aluminium

. . . so it was able to beat

all the big heavy cars,” he said.

“That car, particularly the first

Starlet with the V8, was incredibly

successful. It held lap records

and did the business all over the

place.”

Crowe would power the Starlet

to four OSCA championships

between 1981 and 1985. He also

won his one and only Ashley

Forest Rally Sprint in the Starlet

in 1985. His winning time of

1.04.69 to defeat Neil Allport in

the top two shootout was also a

new track record at the time.

“It was a track car and we just

put some shingle wheels on it

basically, took it to the hill climb

and won it.”

In 1988 Crowe stamped his

mark on touring cars. He won

the NZ championship in a

BMW M3. However, the most

memorable moment of the year

came when he and Peter Janson

won their class and finished

fourth outright at Bathurst in an

M3. The same year a third place

finish at the Wellington street

with Mark Thatcher – the son of

former United Kingdom Prime

Minister Margaret Thatcher -

also saw Crowe crowned the Asia

Pacific touring car champion.

Over the last three decades

Crowe has won many South

Island rallies and had class victories

at the Ashley Forest sprint

and Race to the Sky at Cardrona.

Other memorable Crowe

builds over time have included a

V8 Skoda, a mid-engined Subaru

Justy running a 2.5-litre turbocharged

WRX engine making

over 400hp, and his own take on

a Subaru ute.

“On the shingle is probably

more my heart. It’s far more

challenging. Circuit racing is

relatively easy if you know what

you’re doing and you’ve got a half

good car . . . on shingle it’s the

ultimate challenge, every corner

is something different and a new

adventure,” he said.

‘So, we put him in the back

of the rally car which is

incredibly illegal and for

the next 20km he guided

us screaming at the top of

his voice all of the way.’

One of Crowe’s more interesting

adventures came at an event

many years ago in New Caledonia

while rallying a Ford Escort.

Crowe remembers the event

being very dusty and the road

maps being in French which

meant he and his co-driver had

little idea where they were going.

“We had to follow the locals

on the navigational stages to get

to the special stages and on the

special stages you’re meant to

be able to work it out from the

instructions . . . they took us into

this mine and after all the cars

had driven around and got lost

several times all you could see

was red dust and nobody could

work out where to go,” he said.

There was a guy standing

on the side of the road in his

full native gear, so we pulled up

beside him and asked him. We

couldn’t understand him and he

couldn’t understand us, but we

sort of made out to him that we

don’t know where to go and he

pointed with his spear where to

go. So, we put him in the back of

the rally car which is incredibly

illegal and for the next 20km

he guided us screaming at the

top of his voice all of the way

. . . we were one of only three

cars which got through and in

the end they cancelled the rally

because everybody got lost,” said

Crowe.

Outside of motorsport Crowe

is also somewhat of a fitness

guru – perhaps one of the keys

to his agelessness. He regularly

competed in triathlons and has

run the London and Paris Marathons.

His best time came on the

West Coast in a time of 3hr 3sec.

However, he will claim it as a sub

three-hour marathon due to not

passing the start line for several

seconds.

“[Being fit] I had this

advantage in things like Bathurst

because I could get out of the

car and go and do another stint

if I had to, whereas a lot of the

drivers in those days weren’t that

fit,” he said.

He has also completed the individual

two-day Coast to Coast,

but hasn’t been back for a second

crack.

“I remember laying on the

beach at the finish line in Sumner

and my partner was there. I

said: ‘I don’t think I’m ever going

to do that again because it hurts

too much’.”

These days Crowe is an avid

walker, spends time on the bike

and lifting weights. However, he

no longer competes seriously due

to suffering from arrhythmia for

the past 20 years.

Crowe says that “sometimes

he thinks he will and sometimes

he thinks he wont” stop building

and racing cars. With the build

of a six-cylinder Justy currently

a project in his workshop, the

legacy doesn’t look like ending

anytime soon.

“Every decade or era that I’ve

been in has been fantastic. I’ve

been lucky that I haven’t been

seriously injured. I’ve probably

done more miles on shingle and

seal than anybody else and probably

built more cars than most

guys, so it’s been fantastic really.”

ONE MONTH out from his

first world title defence, Bowyn

Morgan’s preparations are a

lot different to any other bout

before. Monday is the due date

of his third child.

The recently crowned WBU

welterweight world champion

will put his belt on the

line for the first time

in Christchurch on

October 19 when he

fights Nelson Tinampay,

of the Philippines.

When Morgan

defeated Jack Asis here

in May, it was the first

time a world title fight

had been contested in

Christchurch. Now he

is hoping a successful

defence will be cause for double

celebrations over the next

month.

“It’s a new experience for

me going through camp and

expecting a child at the same

time,” said Morgan.

The phone is always pretty

close as I’ve got clients or I’m

taking a class, it’s always beside

me in case I get that call.”

Morgan will become as

accustomed to girls running

around the house as he has to

sweeping aside any opponent

who has stepped in his way

over a five-year professional

career. The 30-year-old has two

daughters and is expecting a

third.

Morgan – who works as a

personal trainer at 1 More

Round Boxing Fitness Centre

on St Asaph St – has a current

record of 20 wins and one

defeat. He should hold an edge

over his upcoming opponent,

Tinampay, who has

a record of 14 wins

seven losses and a

draw. The 26-year-old

Filipino will also step

up a weight class,

previously boxing as a

super lightweight.

“I know he’s going

to be quite fast and

have a good work rate

on him . . . I just need

to come to the game

with my fitness extremely high,

which it always is, and blow him

out of the water,” said Morgan.

While Morgan’s preparations

have been altered with the

expected new arrival, his trainer

Phil Shatford – who has been

with Morgan since his amateur

days – is still expecting his

boxer to be in tip-top shape.

“We haven’t been able to travel

and get Bowyn sparring, so

we’ve just had to make do with

what’s in Christchurch basically.

It’s not the greatest preparation

he’s ever had, that’s for sure, but

in saying that, Bowyn’s always

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

in fantastic nick.” Bowyn, who

also holds the Asia Pacific IBO

belt, says the plan going forward

is to win another regional title,

likely in Australia, which will

open the door for fights in the

United Kingdom.

“I would love to get to

Australia and then the UK.

That’s where it is, especially the

UK, they’re overtaking America

right now and really taking over

the show,” said Morgan.

For now though, his sights

are fully set on a successful title

defence on October 19. The

fight will be held at the same

venue he captured the belt – the

Christchurch Boys’ High School

auditorium.

Morgan has been on the big

stage at the Commonwealth

Games and on Joseph Parker’s

undercards. However, he says

the atmosphere created at his

WBU title-winning fight at the

auditorium was “something

completely different.”

will be heading to Brisbane to participate in a

‘cricket week’.

The cricket week is being hosted by Marist

College Ashgrove in Brisbane. Shirley Boys will

play three 50 over games and two T20 games

against schools from Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney

and Wellington.

The aim of the tour is to prepare the boys for

the season ahead and to further develop their

cricketing skills. It is also a good opportunity to

build team spirit for the season ahead.

The team is a mixture of regular 1st XI players

and some younger players who are future 1st

XI prospects. The boys are particularly looking

forward to the challenge of playing in Australian

conditions and playing the T20 games where

matches will be played with a pink ball which

will be a new experience for the boys.

will travel with the team plus a number of parents

as supporters. Coach Entwistle wants the team

to get some tough games in before the local

season starts so the team starts the season match

hardened and in good form. The team has the

season goal of being promoted back into the top

1st XI competition for 2020.

On their ‘rest day’ the team plan to go to the

‘Wet and Wild’ Theme Park on the Gold Coast for

some rest and recreation. The team also hopes

to visit the ‘Gabba’ or Suncorp Stadium plus get

in some shopping in their down time.

It is hoped the tour will become a two yearly event.

The team, management and supporters would

like to thank their generous sponsors for their

support in getting them to Brisbane.

What to do about trees?

Some of the most beautiful streets in the world

are lined with trees – think the Champs-Élysées

in Paris or Yaesu Sakura Street in Tokyo, with its

stunning cherry trees – but as anyone who lives

in a leafy area, will tell you, trees can also cause

no end of bother. They can block views, damage

fences and interfere with power lines. Wayward

roots can disrupt pipes, branches can reduce

sunlight, leaves can block gutters and windfall

fruit can attract rodents.

“When looking at a property, it’s wise to consider

the possible impact of your potential neighbour’s

trees before making an offer. The people who

planted them may not have carefully thought

through their placement and how big they might

grow, which is even more reason for you to think

about what may happen in the future,” Lampen-

Smith says.

“If the trees on a property you’re considering

and those next door are large and well-established,

there’s a good chance that their roots may cause

problems as well as their branches. Tree roots

are out of sight, out of mind until they start to

snake their way into retaining walls, foundations

or drains (at which point they become difficult

to ignore and expensive to re-route),” Lampen-

Smith says.

If you own a property, you can do whatever

you like to your trees, within the bounds of the

law that says you have the right to the ordinary

use and enjoyment of your land. This is subject

to any protection that may apply to your tree. If

it’s protected (for example, because it is historic,

considered to be significant or needed to prevent

erosion), you may need to get resource consent

before doing anything to it. “Remember, you can’t

unreasonably interfere with your neighbours’ use

and enjoyment of their land, which means that

you can’t let your trees become a problem at their

place (and vice versa).” Lampen-Smith says.

If the branches from the property next door

overhang one you have recently purchased, take

a moment to think before you start swinging your

chainsaw at the branches crossing your boundary

line. You’re likely to be living close to these people

for some time – do you really want to start out

on a negative footing? “How would you feel if

someone moved in next door to you and started

hacking away at your trees without consulting you

first? It would be wise to give your neighbours

time to warm to you before tackling their trees,”

says Lampen-Smith.

Legally, you are entitled to trim any branches

or roots from a tree (or large shrub, or plant)

that encroach on your property unless they are

protected, in which case you may need resource

consent first. However, for the sake of being a

decent neighbour, it would be a good idea to

talk to the tree’s owners first. Don’t be tempted

to take matters into your own hands and poison

the tree, or trespass onto their property to chop

parts of it off. One way to resolve the situation is to

seek advice from a professional arborist. Getting

an expert to prune the tree in a way that doesn’t

destroy it completely will be far cheaper than

hiring a lawyer.

In a scenario where a neighbour’s trees aren’t

overhanging your property but present a risk to

it (such as toppling over in high winds) and you

can’t sort it out with a quick chat over the fence or

with an arborist’s help, it may be time to seek help

from the Disputes Tribunal or the District Court.

If the trees are causing a nuisance – blocking

views and/or light – and you’re unable to agree

with the neighbour, you can apply to the District

Court for an order to get the neighbour to trim or

remove the tree.

When weighing up landscaping options on your

property, it’s always useful to remember the adage:

mighty oaks from little acorns grow.

Woolston Club is thrilled to

introduce some exciting

new additions to their

Bar & Restaurant offering!

1/2 Chook & Chips with

slaw & gravy for $28

Tonight’s

Dinner Deal

Tuesday

Wednesday

MANY of Woolston's favourite fares still

feature on the bar and restaurant menu,

however to start your dining experience,

Woolston now offer Salt & Pepper

crumbed Calamari, and the popular fried

chicken in two size options.

One standout addition is the selection

of Rotisserie meals, an enhancement of

the standard Roast. Now the decision is

yours; between traditional Beef with

Yorkshire pud', chicken with lemonthyme

stuffing, and pork with apple &

sultana relish, you certainly are not short

on options. Choose a potato side and two

vegetable dishes to accompany.

Another dish set to delight is the NZ

Greenshell Mussels, baked in beer, white

wine and cream, an absolute Kiwi

favourite, and meat-lovers will not be

disappointed in some changes to the

famous Woolston burger. Now featuring

double meat, double cheese, bacon, a fried

egg, beetroot and topped off with sour

cream, this monstrous meal is not for the

tame!

Providing excellent value for money,

the “Woolston Weeklies” are the new daily

rituals you will want to pop in your diary.

Promising the retention of the everpopular

'Half price ribs', '2 4 1 Pizza', 'Kids

dine free,' and of course the 'Sunday

Roast' Woolston also present the addition

of both a Steak and a Chook night.

Tuesday 'Steak Night' includes steak,

egg, chips & a pint of house beer for just

$20, while 'Chook Night' on Saturdays is

the perfect opportunity to bring your

better half or a mate down for a shared

meal. $28 gets you half a massive size 18

chicken, plus chips, slaw and gravy to

devour. Good luck attempting this on

your own!

Woolston Weeklies are available daily

from 5pm until late.

Come down and give our new options

a try! Cal 03 389 7039 to book a table.

Lianne Dalziel

Christchurch Mayor

“I love Christchurch and am confident about

our future.

With my experience and inclusive style of

leadership, we can tackle any challenges that

lie ahead, while seizing every opportunity that

comes our way.

Together, we will build a legacy for

generations to come.”

Let’s keep the momen

I’m proud of Christchurch and it is an enormous privilege to

represent you as Mayor.

Our city is emerging from unprecedented challenges to become

one of the most dynamic in New Zealand.

Much has been accomplished but the job is not yet done.

Disaster brought tragedy but at the same time has created a unique

opportunity to reimagine Christchurch.

We have laid the foundation for a modern, sustainable and resilient

21st Century city – together we can build a legacy for generations

to come.

We need to get the chlorine out of the water and keep it out. We

need to keep investing in the central city and the east, and we also

need to get rates increases down.

We need to keep the momentum going; progress must continue.

I want Christchurch to be known for its fantastic lifestyle, as well as

being the innovation and creativity capital of New Zealand.

I have the experience, I have the commitment and I have the

teambuilding skills to deliver on what I promise.

I’m looking forward to serving Christchurch again and using my

experience to drive this vision across the line – I believe that’s

what’s best for Christchurch.

ntum going

My immediate priorities:

Water

Investment in our infrastructure will deliver pure water safely to your home.

I will fight Government-imposed mandatory chlorination.

Rates

I will bring rates rises down while ensuring continued infrastructure

investment and balancing council debt and inflation.

Central City

A vibrant city centre is essential. Having secured $300m for Christchurch,

the stadium will be a multi-use facility.

I will continue to back the developers leading the way.

Sustainability

I am committed to reducing our city’s carbon footprint, and helping

communities to prepare for the impacts of climate change.

Eastern Alliance

An alliance of contractors will deliver a fully integrated programme of works

across the east, fixing roads, footpaths and pipes, and building stopbanks.

Do it once, do it right.
