WEBSITE

SHUT DOWN

• By Sophie Cornish

A WEBSITE which identified

high school students and

made allegations of sexual and

physical assault and under-age

sex has been shut down.

Netsafe has confirmed it received

four complaints last week

about the anonymous gossip

website, chchgossipgirlxoxo.

Content on the website included

allegations of both physical

and sexual assault, names of

students and schools, under-age

sex, pregnancy and bullying.

One post said a male student

had sex with a 13-year-old female.

Students from Christchurch

Girls’ High, Marian College,

St Bede’s College, Shirley Boys’

High, Rangi Ruru, Villa Maria,

Christchurch Boys’ High and

Hagley College were mentioned

on, chchgossipgirlxoxo.

Said CGHS principal Christine

O’Neill: “The school was

recently made aware of the Gossip

Girls’ website and worked

pro-actively with Netsafe in

regards to it. We are unaware

who the authors of the site are as

it is anonymous.”

Netsafe chief executive Martin

Cocker said it advised the

website’s development platform,

Wix.com to contact the creator

of chchgossipgirlxoxo to remove

the harmful content, which

breached the Harmful Digital

Communications Act 2015.

“For this process, we generally

allow a couple of days. In this

case, it looks like this has happened,”

Mr Cocker said.

The site was still active on

Friday, but removed by Tuesday.

Thursday October 31 2019 The Star

• By Sophie Cornish

NOT ONE but two books about

Kieran Read will be launched in

Christchurch on November 22.

The retiring All Blacks captain

will appear at an event to release

Kieran Read Straight 8 The

Autobiography at Canterbury

University’s new UCSA building.

And on the same night,

Kieran Read Straight 8 by Scotty

Stevenson will also be launched.

Stevenson, a Spark Sport

commentator for the RWC, will

also be at the event, where signed

copies of the

books will be

available.

Read was

unable to discuss

the launch of

the books when

contacted by

The Star as he

was focused on

the All Blacks

third and fourth

place RWC match against Wales

tomorrow night.

The two-time RWC winner will

call time on his All Blacks career

after the match. He plans to move

to Japan with his wife, Bridget,

and their three children to play

for Japanese club Toyota Verblitz

on a one-year contract.

His autobiography features an

open and honest account of his

rugby career, including insights

into the unique pressure around

taking over as All Blacks captain

from the now-retired Richie

McCaw. He

discusses the

emotional toll

injuries and

defeats have had

on his career

and the “intense

experience of

representing a

rugby-obsessed

nation”.

Read also

gives his take

on the various

personalities and

misdemeanours

of his teammates,

coaches and opponents.

The No 8 underwent surgery in

2016 on his wrist and on his lower

spine in 2017.

Born in Papakura, Auckland,

in 1985, Read went on to win the

RWC in 2011 and in 2015, and is

the third most capped All Blacks

player of all time with 125 tests.

He has captained the All Blacks

since 2015 and was named New

Zealand player of the year in 2010

and 2013, and World Rugby player

of the year in 2013. Read was a

three-time Super Rugby winner

with the Crusaders in 2008, 2017

and 2018, and accumulated 145

caps for the team.

Stevenson has written several

biographical books for other

professional sportsmen, including

Cory Jane: Winging It (2015), The

Kiwi Pair (with Hamish Bond

and Eric Murray, 2016), Beaver

(with Stephen Donald, 2017) and

Crocky: Wyatt Crockett (2018).

Riverside Market boosts other city eateries

THE OPENING of the

Mr Peebles said

businesses surrounding

had a massive positive impact

on the surrounding businesses.”

Original Sin bar owner Max

Bremner said there has been an

increase in turnover of 15 per

cent at the Oxford Tce bar for

the “lunch period and over the

•From page 1

It comes after another page on

social media platform Instagram,

rolly_colly_scraps, featured three

videos of Rolleston College students

fighting.

It had 150 followers before

it was deleted on Tuesday. The

videos included a male student

being punched in the face and

another of two female students

pulling at each other’s hair.

Yesterday, a video showing a

fight between young teenagers

in the Countdown car park on

Moorhouse Ave circulated on

Facebook.

It showed a teenage boy being

punched to the ground and then

kicked and punched while on the

ground.

The website, chchgossipgirlxoxo,

which made its first post on

October 7, mirrored popular television

series Gossip Girl, where

people send anonymous tips of

‘gossip’ which are then posted

online.

“Welcome to the new and

improved Christchurch Gossip

Girl. This is made for Christchurch

secondary school kids, this

is where you can find out

scandals and big news!” said the

website.

One post named a student

claiming he had sexually assaulted

someone, while saying

the student was like R. Kelly, an

American R&B singer who is

currently facing more than 15

charges of sexual assault, abuse

of a minor and making indecent

images of minors.

Another post named a female

student, saying there were “rumours”

she was pregnant.

Student might be pregnant among claims

College students set up

several social media

accounts on Facebook,

Instagram and Snapchat, assisted

by teachers, as part of a health

project about cyber safety and

cyber citizenship.

But the project backfired when

younger students began sending

messages to the accounts, called

Merivale Gossip Girl unaware

the accounts were operated and

controlled by teachers.

The school received a backlash

from both parents and Netsafe,

as the younger students reported

feeling tricked by the fake profiles.

Mr Cocker said four complaints

were made by members

of the public last week about

chchgossipgirlxoxo.

“Netsafe can’t define something

as an offence under the

Act. It can only be defined as

an offence by the court. We can

determine that it would likely

be one, and then advise people

accordingly. We advised them

(Wix.com) that it is the right

thing to do (remove harmful

content),” he said.

“We know for certain

these sites can be incredibly

damaging and there

are volumes of research

available about online bullying

and its immediate

impact and how it harms

someone.

Martin Cocker “It can cause young

people to disengage from

school, groups and society. Often

in some cases depending on the

person, it could lead to self-harm.

The impact of this type of bullying

can affect people later in life

right, through to middle-age.

“It is serious, people think

these types of website are fun and

they can be fun, but often they

can quickly spiral into abuse and

bullying.”

Rangi Ruru principal Sandra

School fights online

• By Devon Bolger

POLICE ARE investigating

an Instagram account which

featured videos of high school

students fighting.

Three videos of students fighting

at Rolleston College were

posted on the account rolly_

colly_scraps which had 150

followers before it was deleted.

Sergeant Phil Bayne said

police are seeking advice from

its digital forensics team.

“We will then ascertain if

there’s anything we can do

about it. The investigation is

around what the legality is and

what police can do in regards to

it,” he said.

Rolleston College principal

Steve Saville said the school

have been made aware of the

account and has been communicating

with police

He said two of the videos are

from historic incidents and the

third one happened last week.

The incident was dealt with

at the time but no action has

been taken yet because we

are still exploring it,” said Mr

Saville.

“One of the videos is from

an incident in term 1 when a

student from another school

came on to the grounds. That

was reported quite widely at the

time.”

Earlier this year a teenager

disguised herself as a Rolleston

College student by wearing a

school jacket and entered

the grounds unnoticed

before attacking a 13-year-old

student.

FIVE SUBURBS have been

outlined as areas of priority for

roading improvements in a city

council report.

Riccarton, Richmond, New

Brighton, Linwood/Woolston

and the wider Spreydon/

Somerfield/Waltham/

Beckenham areas have been

identified as the priorities

in an investment case to the

Government.

The investment case will

ask for $40 million from the

Christchurch regeneration

acceleration fund for roading

and transport improvements.

If city councillors approve the

investment case in their first

official meeting today, it will be

sent to the Treasury for approval.

The case proposes using

$25 million to $30 million

on improvements to the five

suburban areas, which will focus

on enhancing “accessibility,

safety and asset condition.”

Improvements to Linwood

and Woolston are estimated

to cost $5,103,500, $6,677,500

for New Brighton, $6,990,000

for Riccarton, $5,879,500 for

Richmond and $5,118,000 for

the wider Spreydon/Somerfield,

Waltham/Beckenham area.

City councillor Mike

Davidson, who was deputy

chairman of the infrastructure

and environment committee

last term, said the cash injection

would have a significant impact

on the city’s regeneration.

“It’s well over 100 streets that

are going to benefit from this,”

he said.

A further $5 million to $7

million is proposed to accelerate

targeted safety improvements to

reduce death and serious injury

crashes.

Another $5 million to

$8 million is proposed for

improving bus priority measures

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Roading priorities listed

REPAIRS NEEDED: Five Christchurch suburbs have been

prioritised for roading improvements in a city council

report.

on key public transport routes

across the city.

The investment case said

without a cash injection traffic

congestion would increase

and “undermine the city’s

regeneration.”

During a workshop between

the city council, Government

officials and the New Zealand

Transport Agency last

year, it was noted in spite

of a “significant repair and

replacement programme” the

city still had a way to go to

“provide attractive and safe”

modes of transport to residents

and visitors.

The report also stated about

300km of the 3000km of roading

owned by the city council was

severely damaged or needed

to be dug up for repairs to

other infrastructure after the

earthquakes.

But while the city council

and Government spent $2.2

billion on a five-and-a-half-year

programme to fix horizontal

infrastructure, the report states

many assets need to be repaired

over the next 30 years to bring

them back up to pre-quake levels.

The Christchurch regeneration

acceleration fund was first

announced by Labour in 2017 as

part of its pre-election Plan for

Cantebury to accelerate recovery

from the earthquakes.

The $300 million fund was

intended to repair horizontal

infrastructure and advance key

regeneration projects, such as the

mulit-use arena.

If the $40 million investment

case for transport improvements

is approved with the $40

million proposal for the

regeneration of the Otakaro

Avon River Corridor, it would

leave $220 million for the multiuse

arena which is awaiting an

investment case for councillors

to endorse.

Restrictions

on water

use possible

• By Louis Day

ALMOST HALF of the city’s

residents could be put under

water restrictions in the new year.

City council head of three waters

and waste Helen Beaumont

said it anticipates introducing

level one water restrictions for at

least three to four weeks during

January to the city’s central water

zone, which accounts for 42 per

cent of Christchurch residents.

She said there is a possibility

the restriction period could extend

into February.

However, for the restrictions

to go ahead, it will need the approval

of city councillors in their

first official meeting today.

Level one restrictions mean

hoses, sprinklers and garden irrigation

systems are permitted on

alternate days.

This means if a person lives at

an odd-numbered address, they

can water their garden on odd

dates, and a person living at an

even-numbered address can water

their garden on even dates.

City council staff have

recommended the restrictions

to support ongoing work on

the water supply network and

to allow the drilling of the new

well in Papanui and repairs to a

Cashmere reservoir.

NEWS

Today a new film, Hillary:

Ocean to Sky is released.

It features Redcliffs

resident Jim Wilson, one

of Sir Edmund Hillary’s

best friends. Reporter

Sophie Cornish speaks to

him about the friendship

and a trip of a lifetime

IT WAS in a Dunedin flat over

a feed of potatoes and mutton

that Jim Wilson met Sir Edmund

Hillary in 1962.

As a 26-year-old relatively

inexperienced mountaineer, Mr

Wilson was in awe.

“I can remember our mutual

friend, Michael, brought him to

our flat in Dunedin and forever

after, he (Sir Ed) always claimed

we fed him a whole sack of potatoes

and a whole side of mutton,

but he was exaggerating, it was

only a quarter of mutton.

“We were hugely in awe of Ed,

but he just immediately put us

at ease. He was a lovely, friendly

man. We were mountaineers,

and he was the first mountaineer

who had made the first descent

of Everest (1953). He was very

famous,” Mr Wilson said.

The very next year the pair,

who soon became close friends,

embarked on their first expedition

together to Nepal, Sir Ed’s

schoolhouse expedition.

“He would persuade young

mountaineers to come with him

to Nepal. Well, he didn’t persuade

us, he invited us and we would

leap at the chance.”

Today, a movie starring both

Mr Wilson and Sir Ed will

showcase and recount their most

dangerous expedition, navigating

the length of the Ganges, a

2500km river that flows through

India and Bangladesh, then

climbing a peak above the river’s

headwaters.

But it’s not the first time filmmaker,

Michael Dillion, has made

the film.

Dangerous Ganges trip with Sir Ed

The Blind Care Company has been

cleaning and repairing the region’s blinds

for over 60 years. Those six decades

have seen changes in both fashion and

technology. Styles have ranged from

festooned fabric swags to straightforward

and still popular holland roller blinds,

from vertical to horizontal slat systems,

and in every colour or pattern popular

since the 1960s.

Whatever your style, the Blind Care

Company has the expertise to keep your

window treatments looking fresh and

working efficiently. Using only ecofriendly

chemicals, the build-up of dirt,

dust, grease, nicotine and smoke residue

can be removed so that your blinds

smell fresh and are restored to their

original glory. The company can repair

blinds also, having a huge range of parts

in stock. And if you want something

completely new, a great range of blinds is

available for purchase.

The company prides itself on efficient

service, providing a fast turn-around,

with most work taking one or two

days, and a same day cleaning option is

available. It makes it as easy as possible

for clients. The Cashel Street location

couldn’t be more convenient and a pickup

and drop-off service is available. 150

blinds per day can be cleaned at this site.

A cut-down and size alteration service

is available in order that the blinds you

bought are a perfect fit.

They are experts in their field with a

huge amount of experience to draw on. In

fact, all their staff has been on board for

at least 8 years, and many up to 20 years.

Whatever the job involves, they will work

hard to make sure it gets done.

In 1979, Dillion released From

the Ocean to the Sky based on the

experiences he and the crew had

in 1977, during Sir Ed’s Ocean to

Sky expedition.

Now, the remade film will

weave in the original footage

while the men still alive from the

expedition, who are now in their

60s, 70s and 80s, recount the

events with different insight and

wisdom.

When approached by Dillion

about the re-make, Mr Wilson,

now 82-years-old, admits he

thought Dillion was crazy.

“He interviewed all us survivors,

I thought it was a crazy

idea. We old folk can hardly

remember our names, let alone

what happened 43 years ago.

“But, when prompted, I could

remember virtually everything.

It was the highlight of our lives,

with Ed, driving jet boats up this

sacred river in India,” Mr Wilson

said.

With barely any training, Sir

Ed took Mr Wilson as one of the

jet boat drivers for the trip.

But that’s just the way he liked

it, Mr Wilson said.

“Only Ed would decide it was a

good idea to take a novice jet boat

“If he knew or at least thought

that you had done your best, even

if your best was a total catastrophe

that it was in this case, it wasn’t even

a question of forgiving you, he just

accepted it,” Mr Wilson said.

Mr Wilson feared he would have

“difficulty saying anything meaningful”

when he heard of the film’s

re-make.

“But his questions (Dillion) were

so good and he drew an enormous

amount out of us about how much

we loved Ed particularly when

we were talking about bringing

him down from the camp and we

thought he was going to die. He

really brought out of us the tension

and unity of the group and effort we

were putting in to try and save Ed’s

life. I found it quite moving seeing

it again.”

The movie also features scenes

of Sir Ed visiting the crash site,

where his wife Louise and daughter

Belinda, were killed in a plane crash

near Kathmandu in 1975. Sir Ed

blamed himself for the disaster.

“He’s woven in these reflections of

ours, 42 years later. We loved him,

we would have gone anywhere with

him and done anything for him,”

Mr Wilson said.

With his wife Ann, Mr Wilson

has lived in Redcliffs for 54 years

and is now retired and spends his

time with his grandchildren, playing

tennis and e-biking.

“It’s a wonderful period of life,”

he said.

CRITICISM about

unprofessional counselling and

lengthy wait-lists has prompted

Canterbury University to

consider changes to its Health

Centre.

Student magazine Canta says

an overwhelming number of

students have been leaving the

free on-campus counselling

feeling worse-off, after being

told to try harder to get better, or

feeling dismissed before they’re

ready to stop counselling.

After writer Frankie

Desmond had her own “negative

experience” at the counselling

service, she asked other students

to share their thoughts on it,

good or bad.

One person shared a positive

story but 12 others described

feeling judged, dismissed or

uncomfortable during recent

counselling sessions, including

a woman driven to panic attacks

by her treatment.

“One person who requested

a female counsellor . . . was

told she would get a female

counsellor, she walked in and it

was a male counsellor. People

have had very inappropriate

quotes [made] when they went

in to deal with statutory rape.

People were told: ‘You’re not

cops criticism

trying hard enough, try harder

to get better,’ that kind of thing,”

she said.

This year students paid a

collective $499,000 for five fulltime

health centre counsellors,

extra staff during exam times,

and a triage counsellor being

trialled this year.

In a written statement, the

university said it had upped

the health centre’s resources

each year since 2017 and

students who declare urgent

needs are seen by nurses or GPs

if there’s no counsellors readily

available.

It also detailed other

changes being made because

of feedback and was urging the

complainants to come forward.

A spokesperson said they

hoped to make the triage

counsellor permanent, to make

sure students on the wait-list

were safe and provide interim

assistance, and that counsellors

were designing a questionnaire

to gather anonymous feedback

from every client.

The health centre’s medical

director, Joan Allardyce, said

the criticism was disappointing

and surprising, as it didn’t match

feedback given directly to the

health centre.

Justice precinct dispute in court

EVIDENCE SWORN in court

details how Fletcher Building’s

relationship with its partners

on the $300 million central

city justice precinct soured as

the project ran over time and

budget.

Fletcher is being sued by

utilities contractor Electrix,

which says while it was paid $21

million for its work, it should get

another $7.5 million for the job

it did.

The NZX-listed builder

is counter-suing, saying it

overpaid Electrix by about $8

million. Fletcher claims Electrix

misrepresented the job it could

do.

In spite of opposition from

Fletcher, Justice Matthew

Palmer granted access to

witnesses’ briefs of evidence to

enable reporting on the case,

which started earlier this month.

Electrix says the parties never

agreed on a subcontract price

but it should have got $28.8

million on the basis of quantum

meruit, the legal doctrine which

says you should get paid for what

the job is worth.

Fletcher says there was a

partly oral and partly written

agreement the electrical work

could be done for $15 million

plus GST. The project for the

Ministry of Justice was one

of several that contributed to

SOURED: Fletcher Building and Electrix are in a dispute over

the $300 million Christchurch Justice and Emergency Services

Precinct.

nearly $1 billion of losses for

Fletcher’s Building + Interiors

unit over an 18-month period.

Documents before the High

Court at Auckland show how

Electrix scrambled to find

contractors for the project,

was pressured by Fletcher’s

managers, and how Beca left the

project two years before it was

completed.

According to the evidence

from Electrix, Beca – which

was subcontracting for Opus

International – was removed

from the project after it insisted

on clinging to its original

electrical designs.

Electrix says since the

electrical design was

rejected by the ministry “it

was obvious to all involved

that the parties were operating

in a situation of considerable

uncertainty.”

Evidence sworn by Electrix

manager Phillip Werrett says

pressure from Fletcher to

have more men on site was

“relentless.” The company claims

once liquidated damages were

being levied in February 2017,

Fletcher pressured it to have

more manpower even if workers

stood idle at times.

“No matter how many

people we had on-site – and

in mid-2017 we had up to 75 –

[Fletcher] always wanted more,

even though they could not

always be used efficiently due

to unavailable work faces or

constraints on site,” Mr Werrett

says in his brief.

The evidence said to meet

client inspection and public

opening dates, Fletcher regularly

requested Electrix install

temporary lights so areas looked

finished.

“This was incredibly wasteful

and inefficient. Electrix would

have to source temporary lights,

install and then later remove

them, with the associated need

to rip out and then re-install

ceilings or wall,” Mr Werrett’s

brief says.

He also claimed the building

was not water-tight, making it

difficult to do electrical work in.

Mr Werrett’s evidence was

that Fletcher staff were pretty

unhappy by the time the project

reached practical competition

in 2017 and, given they knew

their company’s high-rise

construction unit known as

Building + Interiors was being

disestablished, “their interest

and commitment to the project

was non-existent.”

Fletcher’s Simon Chambers,

who was the overall manager

for the project, says its demands

were not unreasonable and “they

do not become unreasonable just

because Electrix had capability

issues.

“My strong feeling is that

Electrix has not delivered their

services well or efficiently,” his

evidence said.

This was reiterated by Fletcher

executive Jeff Wilson who said

in his brief “I would close by

saying that Electrix significantly

oversold their capability and

under-delivered in engineering

solutions.”

Fletcher says the end claim of

Electrix of almost $30 million is

“so wholly out of any reasonable

expectations that it has been

misled and been denied the

timely opportunity to secure a

better outcome.”

The evidence of the defence

points out that Electrix

executives missed key progress

meetings and the sticking point

was growing mistrust between

the parties.

The case hearing is anticipated

to finish at the end of the week.

MOTORISTS HAVE been fined

more than a quarter-million

dollars this year for driving and

parking in special vehicle lanes.

From the start of this year

to the end of last week the city

council has raked in $378,530

from 5147 special vehicle lane

infringement fines.

The fines include driving or

parking in bus or cycle lanes.

The $378,530 collected so far

this year is an increase from the

$263,120 collected from 2821

fines last year.

Motorists can be fined $150

for driving more than 50m along

a bus lane, those who park in a

bus lane between 7am and 9am

or 3pm and 6pm can receive a

$60 fine and be billed for any

towing costs.

The city council has enforced

parking and driving in special

vehicle lanes since 2009.

However, between 2012 and

2017 it only issued infringements

for parking in special vehicle

lanes after the cameras which

monitor them were damaged in

the 2011 earthquakes.

City council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas

said the city council special

vehicle lanes were enforced to

discourage motorists from using

them during peak times.

“This improves bus travel

times and ensures our public

transport service remains safe

and efficient. Cycle lanes provide

a safer environment for cyclists,

rather than competing for road

space with other vehicles,” he

said.

Cases with no body or weapon

Murder prosecutions without a body or weapon are rare but not unheard of in New Zealand. Police recently arrested and charged David

Benbow for the murder of Christchurch carpenter Michael McGrath, two years and four months after he disappeared. Mr McGrath’s body

has not been found and police have not revealed whether a murder weapon was uncovered. Sophie Cornish looks back at some of the

biggest cases which have this in common

37th person

hanged in NZ

MORE THAN 142 years ago,

the first ever murder conviction

without a body or weapon in New

Zealand’s history took place.

William Henry Woodgate,

50, was the 37th person in New

Zealand to be hanged and the

last ever to be hanged in the

Marlborough Sounds.

He was believed to have

been the father of the child he

murdered and the mother was his

niece.

Susan Woodgate was the

daughter of Woodgate’s brother,

Robert.

Woodgate was found guilty

during a trial at the Supreme

Court of New Zealand in

December 1876 after the jury

deliberated for only 55 minutes.

Although the defence argued

there was no evidence of a murder

being committed, two witnesses

testified they had seen Susan

heavily pregnant.

Susan also testified Woodgate

had threatened to smother the

newborn at birth and later told her

he had done so.

Susan’s sister, Elizabeth, testified

she had heard the cry of a baby.

Woodgate was well regarded in

the community and public outcry

over his sentence led to a petition

being sent to the governor, which

was dismissed.

The following month, on

January 25, 1877, Woodgate was

hanged in Picton.

A BODY HAS never been found

in the case of Deane Fuller-

Sandys, 21, who disappeared in

August 1989.

Ten years later, Stephen Stone

and Gail Maney were found

guilty of his murder, which was

drug-related.

Mr Fuller-Sandys had planned

to go fishing and authorities

thought he had been swept

out to sea after his car was

discovered at Whatipu Beach in

West Auckland.

However, five days after he

disappeared, Leah Romany

Stephens, a 20-year-old sex

worker also disappeared.

Her skeletal remains weren’t

discovered until three years later

in a nearby forest.

It was not until police received

a tip-off years later that the two

deaths, known as the Larnoch

Rd murders, were linked and

Mr Fuller-Sandys disappearance

was upgraded to a murder

inquiry.

found another sex worker, Gail

IN DECEMBER 1990, David

Tamihere was convicted of the

murder of a Swedish couple in

a Coromandel forest without

either of the bodies being found.

Heidi Paakkonen, 21, and her

fiance Sven Hoglin, 23, went

missing while tramping in 1989.

The largest ever land-based

search in New Zealand was

undertaken in an attempt to

find the couple.

Tamihere was convicted

following testimonies from

three prison inmates, which

resulted in a sentence of life

imprisonment.

Mr Hoglin’s body was

discovered in 1991. The

discovery revealed evidence

that contradicted the police

case against Tamihere, who

maintained his innocence and

filed a series of unsuccessful

appeals. He was released on

parole in 2010 after serving

It was believed a man had

Maney concluded it was him.

Both Stone and Maney were

given life sentences.

Stone was also convicted

of the rape and murder of

Ms Stephens and two other

people were convicted of being

accessories and helping to

dispose of Mr Fuller-Sandys’

body.

The case was unusual because

of the decade-long gap between

the crime and conviction and

the lack of forensic evidence and

the legal immunity which was

granted to key witnesses.

The case was contentious

because Maney continued to

state her innocence and that she

never met Mr Fuller-Sandys.

testified have since revoked their

original trial testimonies.

THE DISAPPEARANCE of Ben

Smart and Olivia Hope in January

1998 became one of the most

high profile murder cases in New

Zealand history.

The remains of Mr Smart,

21, and Miss Hope, 17, (right)

were never recovered after they

disappeared while celebrating

in the Malborough Sounds on

New Year’s Eve.

The friends

were part of a

group of 1500

party-goers at

the Furneaux

Lodge.

As the party

wound down,

there was no

room on an already overcrowded

yacht, chartered by Miss Hope

and her sister, Amelia, so the pair

caught a water taxi, driven by Guy

Wallace, back to shore in order to

find a place to sleep.

This became the last ever

confirmed sighting of the couple.

During the water taxi trip, the

pair accepted an invitation from

a lone man to stay on his yacht,

Blade. Police believed the single

man to be Picton resident Scott

was revealed as Robert Conchie

Harris, who was convicted of

the double murder of a couple

in 1983.

and reported her disappearance

to the police.

A detective on the case

established Horry’s true identity

and convinced the Auckland

Crown solicitor the case was

strong enough to go to trial.

However, Horry was not

arrested until 1951, when the

circumstantial evidence was

deemed sufficient. He was

released from prison in 1967.

Mr Wallace, being the last

person to see the pair alive,

became the centre of the

investigation. He said he and

other key witnesses were “treated

like criminals” and called liars

by police who “just had to get

someone.” He believed if Watson

wasn’t involved, he would have

been pinned with the murders.

Watson has 48 previous

criminal convictions as a teenager.

But he has always maintained his

innocence. All attempts to appeal

his conviction failed.

OPINION

The coming week

in our history

October 31, 2015 – The All

Blacks defeated Australia 34-17

at Twickenham to become the

first team to win back-to-back

Rugby World Cup competitions.

November 1, 1898 – Oldage

pensions Act becomes law.

The Act gave a small meanstested

pension to elderly people

with few assets who were ‘of

good moral character’.

November 2, 1868 – New

Zealand became the first country

to regulate its time in relation to

Greenwich mean time.

November 3, 1974 – Summer

time was reintroduced on

a trial basis. Daylight saving of

one hour between October and

March was made permanent in

1975.

November 4, 1930 - New

Zealand-bred (but Australianowned)

wonder horse Phar Lap

ridden by Jimmy Pike, won the

Melbourne Cup by two lengths.

November 5, 1913 – The

‘Battle of Featherston Street’, in

downtown Wellington, saw some

of the most violent street fighting

of the 1913 Great Strike.

November 6, 1908 – Prime

Minister Sir Joseph Ward opened

the North Island main trunk

railway line.

THE DEATH of Les Green may

have closed the book on ever

solving one of the great South

Island crime mysteries – what

did happen to Ron Jorgensen?

Green was one of New Zealand’s

most notorious criminals.

He was a prolific bank robber

and had a liking for violence,

albeit his diminutive stature. He

was also suspected of murders

both in New Zealand and

Australia – the ones across the

Tasman linked to the Mr Asia

drugs syndicate.

There are people in the criminal

underworld in the decades

past who believe Green held the

key to Jorgensen’s disappearance

from Kaikoura in the mid-80s.

There are three theories over

what happened to Jorgensen,

who gained infamy for his part

in the Bassett Rd machine gun

murders in Auckland in the

1960s.

He had been paroled with

strict conditions to live with his

elderly father in his hometown

Kaikoura. It was not a place

Jorgy wanted to be. It was far too

small.

On December 17, 1984, Jorgensen’s

Mark II Cortina was

found at the bottom of a 15m sea

cliff near Kaikoura. His body

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Crim’s death rekindles Jorgy mystery

was never found.

One theory was Jorgy had

engineered his own disappearance

and had made his way by

boat to Australia, and was living

in Perth.

There were several reported

sightings of him between 1986

and 1990 in Perth, one supposedly

in the company of a former

Christchurch lawyer.

But nothing was ever substantiated.

The belief was if Jorgensen

From the

editor’s desk

NOTORIOUS: Career criminal Les Green (above) and Ron

Jorgensen (right).

had made it to Australia he

would not have been able to live

a normal life and would have

certainly come to the attention

of the police at some point.

Another theory at the time

was if Jorgy had made it to

Australia, he would have got

offside with criminals there and

they would have ensured he was

never found.

The other theory was that he

did crash over the cliff near Kaikoura

and his body was swept

out to sea.

A Christchurch woman who

was in a relationship with Jorgensen

said in 2000 she believed

he plotted his own disappearance

and was still alive, somewhere.

Her theory was based on

what she says Jorgy said to her

in the weeks leading up to his

disappearance.

Years later when the disappearance

caught the attention

of the media again, police said

they believed a Christmas card

sent from Western Australia to a

woman soon after he went missing,

was from Jorgy.

And so the plot continued to

thicken as the years went by.

But in the Auckland underworld

in the 80s and the years

later, there were some key figures

who firmly believed Les Green

was the man responsible for the

disappearance.

Green had travelled south

to settle an old score, it was

believed. Green was feared

amongst criminals and settling

scores was second nature.

Leslie Maurice Green was

82 when he died in Auckland.

He may have taken the fate of a

number of people with him. Was

Jorgy one of them?

• By Jess Gibson

YOU REALLY have

to love spring in

Christchurch.

Beyond the fact it’s such

a relief to see the colour

green after weeks of living

under the world’s biggest

summer’s “coming soon”

sign, that is Christchurch,

there is a lot more to do in

the city.

On Monday, Laura and I

took advantage of the perfect

sunshine and temperature

to take Vittoria to the

Big Band Picnic in Victoria

Square. We’d taken her last

year and the music had

moved her before she could

even walk.

She had held herself up

on her pram and started,

for want of a better word,

twerking.

So we were confident she

would enjoy it and were not

disappointed.

There were so many jazz

hands and sways being

thrown about from Vittoria

that Laura and I could

eat an entire pizza without

fending off the hungering

mouth.

Possibly the fact that it

was a mushroom pizza may

have helped, but I doubt it.

Her dance moves and

obvious enjoyment were

super cute. The music

and the atmosphere even

stopped her running off

in spite of her normal

tendencies whenever we

want to sit down and relax

in a public area.

The only thing that distracted

her from the music

for any length of time were

To celebrate how well it

was all going we decided to

take part in a century-old

Christchurch tradition and

get a treat from Ice Cream

Charlie. Having grown up

in Waikuku Beach, I’d never

actually heard of Ice Cream

Charlie until last year,

explaining why it wasn’t just

Vittoria’s first taste.

So far we’d managed to

tick off two big ticket items

from the list of stuff to do

in the city when it’s sunny.

To round out the day we

made the daring call to skip

Vittoria’s afternoon nap

and head to the Sign of the

Takahe to get the trifecta.

And a coffee.

Fortunately the gamble

paid off and the wee

trooper held her own on

all of 10 minutes of pramsleep,

lasting through the

coffees and even a walk up

to the nearby lookout. She

only got grumpy when it

was home time, and that’s

normal.

More sunshine and more

events mean more full and

fun days, so exciting times

ahead.

On another note, an

update on last week; I’d

said I was worried about

how I would fare washing,

drying and changing a toddler

on my own post-swim

classes.

In the end I managed to

avoid the whole issue by

maintenance

this easy checklist:

checklist:

■ Change the oil

Oil is the engine’s lifeblood that

removes contaminants, lubricates

parts and dissipates heat. That’s

why it’s important to make sure

the crankcase contains an

adequate supply of fresh oil.

Before changing the oil, run the

engine for several minutes until it

warms up. Then, stop the engine,

disconnect the spark plug and

drain the oil into apan or similar

container. Refill the crankcase with

high quality detergent oil that has a

SG/CD classification on the label.

Take the used oil to alocal

recycling center. It’s

environmentally unfriendly-and

illegal-to dump used motor oil on

the ground or into astorm drain.

■ Check the air filter

Your air-cooled engine needs a

constant supply of clean air. If your

mower engine takes adisposable

paper filter, simply replace it with a

new filter. If the engine requires a

foam-type filter, remove the

sponge from the filter assembly,

soak it in apan of warm water and

squeeze it dry. Then apply afew

drops of clean oil into the sponge

and place it back in the filter

assembly.

■ Use fresh fuel

Gasoline turns stale after about

60 days and can form gum in your

engine’s carburetor, resulting in

expensive repairs. Eliminate the

problem by routinely filling your

engine’s tank with fresh fuel. If gas

must remain in the tank for a

prolonged period of time, add a

fuel stabilizer to keep it fresh and

to ensure aclean fuel system that

leads to easier starting.

It’s SERVICE: time to service Change your lawn the mower oil and sharpen the blade. the blade.

■ Sharpen the blade

Think about what adull razor

does to your face or legs when

shaving. Similarly, adull mower

blade can bruise, bend and

damage your lawn, making it

susceptible to disease. After

disconnecting the spark plug,

examine the blade for wear or

damage. Have it professionally

sharpened at least once annually.

■ Keep things clean

While you’re checking the

blade, remove any dirt and cakedon

grass from under the mower

deck. Squirt some vegetable oil

cooking spray under the deck to

reduce clipping build-up and to

prevent rust. This will also save

you alot of work when cleaning

the mower after each use. You’ll

also want to have your mower

tuned up annually to keep it

running smoothly and efficiently. A

typical professional tune-up

change, ablade sharpening, anew

From your description, it sounds like your raspberry

plant was attacked by the larvae of the raspberry

bud moth - a common problem when cultivating

raspberry plants. The larvae of this moth tunnel

into and damage the canes, eat the fruit bud

and the fruit itself. Careful attention to garden hygiene can

lessen outbreaks of this problem.

As raspberries are to be eaten, you do not want to spray

them with toxic chemicals. Derris Dust can be used as it

is quite safe and effective in controlling the larvae and other

insects that may be attracted to you raspberry plants. You

could also try spraying with Neem Oil.

Remember, raspberry canes are biennial, they grow one

year, fruit the following year, and then should be removed in

February when the fruiting has fi nished. Thin out new seasons

canes as there is often prolifi c growth of young canes in

mid-late summer. Remove and destroy all pruned canes to

ensure there is no additional site for any overwintering

Spring is a good time for repairing or planting a lawn because the soil is warmer which makes

grass seed germination more successful. Apply Daltons Premium Lawn Fertiliser to existing

lawns from late September and avoid mowing too ‘close’ initially in spring. Check mower blades

Artichokes are very easy to grow

GLOBE artichokes can be a

little intimidating.

Visually, they’re statuesque

and striking. And, while

they have a reputation as

a culinary delicacy, to the

novice it can be hard to tell

how they should be eaten at

all.

In spite of all of this,

artichokes are actually a very

easy plant to grow. Possibly

that’s to make up for the fact

they do require a bit of work

to cook … and eat.

So, if you’ve ever wondered

about growing artichokes

wonder no more – just get

planting.

Because artichokes (not to

be confused with jerusalem

artichoke, which are nothing

at all like globe artichokes)

are not particular about

where they grow, you can

choose anywhere in the

vegetable garden to plant.

Alternatively, why not

use that intimidating visual

appearance to your advantage

and plant them with your

flowers. Grow them in the

background as they can reach

around 2m tall.

When you’ve found

the right spot, plant each

artichoke about 50-100cm

apart from the next.

Because we’re coming

into summer it pays to

keep an eye on how dry they

get and try to keep them

watered regularly or apply

mulch.

In around 20-24 weeks

you can expect to see your

first flower buds. It’s the inner

petals and the base of the bud

that is eaten.

And it’s important, if you

want to eat them, to harvest

the buds while the petals are

still tightly wrapped.

Harvest the heads by

cutting just below the bud

and include a small amount

of stem.

The rising popularity of e-bike tours

has Christchurch business PureTrails

in high demand. PureTrails CEO

Hilary Weller says e-bikes were a faroff

dream when she set up her familyrun

business 15 years ago; in fact, the

internet was only just starting to take

off. But, now, they have more first-time

cyclists and people with differing levels

of ability joining their South Island

cycling tours.

“So much has changed since then in

terms of technology. We used to post

people information packs and they

would send us a cheque for payment.

Everything took a lot longer and was

more labour intensive.”

PureTrails’ original bike tour focused

on the Otago Rail Trail. This was

the main trip for the first five to six

years; however, the company now

offers 12 different tour options which

cover most of the South Island. These

include traverses of the Southern

Alps, the West Coast Wilderness Trail,

Queenstown Trail, Canterbury High

Country Trail and a wine tasting tour

of the Marlborough region.

Hilary says the government-led New

Zealand Cycle Trail initiative (Nga

Haerenga) which began in 2009 to

provide a safe and sustainable way to

explore the country, while generating

environmental, economic and social

benefits for local communities, has

changed the way people travel.

“It’s an amazing initiative which means

we can safely explore magical places

throughout New Zealand. The trails

also provide fantastic infrastructure

in terms of food, transport and

accommodation.

“Being able to use locally owned

accommodation and hospitality

providers is important to us and

our clients. It provides a much more

real experience with genuine local

knowledge and hospitality.”

PureTrails’ tours are usually six days,

with most tour participants in the

60+ age bracket. Sixty per cent of the

company’s clients are New Zealanders,

mainly from the North Island, with 35

per cent Australians and the remaining

five per cent a mix of British, American

and Canadian tourists.

“We have around 70 bikes of our

own and then hire about 600 bikes

per season. Tours generally run from

October to May to take advantage of

the warmer weather.”

Advances in e-bike technology have

made it easier and more accessible for

people of different abilities to enjoy a

cycle tour together, along with those

who may not have the same level of

fitness due to health issues.

“Technology is such an equaliser and

I love that e-bikes allow people to

continue biking for many more years

than a traditional bike, even after

having surgery for hips or knees. We

have clients aged in their late 80s who

are still going strong on their e-bikes.

If you’re not a confident biker, or a

couple or friends at different levels,

then an e-bike can also be the perfect

option to allow you to both enjoy the

tour.”

Digital connectivity is also important

for clients wanting to connect with

friends or family during their tour and

a reliable Wi-Fi connection is vital at

accommodation stops along the way.

“Clients expect fast and reliable Wi-

Fi so they can share their photos and

videos via social media, and they are

also keen to check in with friends and

family. “What’s the Wi-Fi code?” is one

of the first questions people ask when

we get to our accommodation each

night.”

Hilary says while digital connectivity

has improved along some trails, other

areas still have a way to go; especially

in Canterbury’s back country and

some parts of rural Kaikoura.

Hilary sees a bright future ahead for

her business with the development

of more cycle trails throughout the

country backed by increased demand

for more active holidays and continued

growth for the e-bike market.

international superstar tenor Simon

O’Neill joins Christchurch’s iconic

Woolston Brass under the direction

of Music Director Tyme Marsters and

compere Tim Beveridge to perform

tenor classics and raise funds for the

band’s future home.

New Zealand born, Simon O’Neill has

established himself as one of the finest

helden-tenors on the international

stage. He has frequently performed

with the Metropolitan Opera, the

Royal Opera House, Covent Garden,

Berlin, Hamburg and Bayerische

Staatsopern, Teatro alla Scala and the

Bayreuth, Salzburg, Edinburgh and

BBC Proms Festivals, appearing with a

number of illustrious conductors.

The Woolston Brass Band has been in

existence for 128 years having been the

most successful and recognised band

in New Zealand which consists of over

thirty musicians of all ages.

The band’s existing hall was damaged

in the earthquakes and after a five-year

search, the award-winning brass band

has decided to rebuild on their existing

historic Dampier Street site. Significant

fundraising is now sought to rebuild

this rehearsal facility that will host

Woolston Brass and their pioneering

education programme – the Woolston

Brass Academy consisting of a learners

group and two training bands;

Woolston Junior Band and Woolston

COMMUNITY

INFLUENCER

“Out of a tragedy can come a new direction,” says

Sarah Dean Founder of the Road Accident Trauma

Charitable Trust.

The sole focus of our trust is to make an influential

difference and contribution toward the reduction

of road trauma in our communities. The scale and

magnitude of road crashes is far too great on a

socio and economic impact.

MEET SARAH

How did this idea arise?

Unfortunately, in 2003 I was involved in two

serious road crashes and two further subsequent

crashes in 2007 and 2013 which I sustained some

significant injuries. I found there was a need for

support services for those who had been affected

by road traffic related trauma. We were initially

founded to provide a service for those who did

not meet the criteria for counselling support

under ACC and to promote education to industry

professionals. This is the first Charitable Trust of its

kind in New Zealand.

What are some highlights through the years?

We have provided services for hundreds of road

accident victims.

2016 it was a privilege to develop New Zealand’s

first Road Accident Remembrance Day which is

an annual large public event to acknowledge those

in our community who have impacted by road

trauma and provides the opportunity to focus on

road safety – which prevents such tragedies on our

roads.

2017 it was really humbling to found the

Canterbury Road Trauma Awards which now coinsides

with our Road Accident Remembrance Day.

This year these two events will be held on Saturday,

9 November 2019 in North Hagley Park at 2.00pm.

2019 we were proud to launch ‘Local Legends’ who

are local ambassadors who promote and endorse

the Canterbury Road Trauma Awards. We are also

hosting our first official event, tailored towards

men ‘Men of Impact’, held at Benny’s Barbershop

on Tuesday, 5 November at 6.00pm, it’s so vital we

continue to have influential and inspirational role

models in our lives. We established the Road Shows

‘Road Trauma in our Community’ which provides

stories of recovery, inspiration and support to

our rural communities. It is important we engage

directly with the communities most deeply

impacted.

2020 will be a big year for us, it is our ten year

anniversary and will be nationalising our Awards.

We will continue to focus on our Road Shows ‘Road

Trauma in our Community’ expanding across

many districts in the Canterbury community and

beyond. We are also hosting our Corporate Charity

Golf Tournament on Thursday, 19 March at the

Russley Golf Club.

“Out of tragedy you can find inspiration and

compassion, it’s really a huge privilege to make

an influential difference to the lives of others and

to create a platform for others to ‘have a voice’.

Thank you to the Police, Fire and Emergency, St.

John, New Zealand Transport Agency, Canterbury

District Health Board, Canterbury Charity Hospital

and Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust,

counsellors and medical professionals and so many

others who support and dedicated their careers

to those who have unfortunately been impacted a

road trauma accident. It is so comforting knowing

there are support services who are there at the time

of the accident and throughout each individual’s

recovery.” says Sarah Dean.

CONTACT WITH

GRANDCHILDREN

8

LAW

LIVING

LIFE

PUZZLES

At a time when we are living longer and healthier lives it is

also the case that the glue that formerly kept families together

and in communication with one another has been stretched to

breaking point.

The Care of the Children Act 2004 recognised this evolving

family dynamic and the Act ensures that children have a way

to maintain and develop a relationship with all wider family

members including Grandparents.

A frequent issue arising for grandparents can be contact

with their grandchildren in circumstances where either

their child or their child’s partner becomes disenchanted

with them and/or their partner and as a consequence stops

contact with grandparents. Alternately it may be that one of

the grandparents’ children is a disinterested parent and that

provides a block on communication and contact.

It will come as no surprise and perhaps some satisfaction

that both the Courts and Oranga Tamariki have recognised

the increasingly important role played by grandparents in

the lives of their grandchildren. In a Rotorua case in 2008

Judge Mackenzie noted that grandparents can “offer benefits

to children different from parents, often because of life

experiences and also because of greater availability of time”.

In the Nelson Family Court Judge Russell commented “As

I have said in a number of cases, it takes “a village to raise a

child”, and good grandparents can teach children much about

life which the children’s own parents cannot. They come from

a different generation and can teach children matters from a

different perspective than can the children’s own parents.”

This brief commentary is directed to contact as distinct from

day to day care (or what used to be called “custody”). In the

case of contact then, grandparents have a right to apply to

Court, subject to leave being granted. It would be unusual

for the Courts not to grant leave in circumstances where

grandparents are clearly motivated by a genuine interest

in their grandchild and had a desire to have a meaningful

relationship with them.

Before applying to the Court

grandparents would need to go through

a process known as FDR (Family

Dispute Resolution). That requires the

parties to mediate with the parents

of the child with a view to reaching a

satisfactory outcome. That process can

take up to 6 weeks and does have a cost.

If the matter is unable to be resolved

at the FDR stage, then an application

can be made to the Court for contact

and at the same time an application

for leave. If you find yourself in this

predicament then you should contact

your lawyer to discuss what can be done.

At Harmans we have a team of 5 lawyers

in the Family Team who understand the

application of the legislation and how

to provide a pathway for you to either

obtain contact or obtain a resumption of

contact with your grandchild.

You can give either Harriet Daley or

Charlie Robson a call on 352-2293 to

arrange an appointment to discuss your

situation.

6 EXERCISES TO HELP SCIATICA

RECLINING PIGEON POSE

Pigeon pose is a common yoga pose. It works

to open the hips. There are multiple versions

of this stretch. The first is a starting version

known as the reclining pigeon pose. If you are

just starting your treatment, you should try the

reclining pose first.

1. While on your back, bring your right leg up

to a right angle. Clasp both hands behind the

thigh, locking your fingers.

2. Lift your left leg and place your right ankle

on top of the left knee.

3. Hold the position for a moment. This helps

stretch the tiny piriformis muscle, which

sometimes becomes inflamed and presses

against the sciatic nerve, causing pain.

4. Do the same exercise with the other leg.

Once you can do the reclining version without

pain, work with your health care professional

on sitting and forward versions of pigeon pose.

SITTING PIGEON POSE

1. Sit on the floor with your legs stretched out

straight in front of you.

2. Bend your right leg, putting your right ankle

on top of the left knee.

3. Lean forward and allow your upper body to

reach toward your thigh.

4. Hold for 15 to 30 seconds. This stretches the

glutes and lower back.

5. Repeat on the other side.

FORWARD PIGEON POSE

1. Kneel on the floor on all fours.

2. Pick up your right leg and move it forward

on the ground in front of your body. Your lower

leg should be on the ground, horizontal to the

body. Your right foot should be in front of your

right knee while your right knee stays to the

right.

3. Stretch the left leg out all the way behind

you on the floor, with the top of the foot on the

ground and toes pointing back.

4. Shift your body weight gradually from

your arms to your legs so that your legs are

supporting your weight. Sit up straight with

your hands on either side of your legs.

5. Take a deep breath. While exhaling, lean

your upper body forward over your front leg.

Support your weight with your arms as much as

possible.

6. Repeat on the other side.

KNEE TO OPPOSITE

SHOULDER

This simple stretch helps relieve sciatica pain by

loosening your gluteal and piriformis muscles,

which can become inflamed and press against

the sciatic nerve.

1. Lie on your back with your legs extended

and your feet flexed upward.

2. Bend your right leg and clasp your hands

around the knee.

3. Gently pull your right leg across your body

toward your left shoulder. Hold it there for 30

seconds. Remember to pull your knee only as

far as it will comfortably go. You should feel a

relieving stretch in your muscle, not pain.

4. Push your knee so your leg returns to its

starting position.

5. Repeat for a total of 3 reps, and then switch

legs.

SITTING SPINAL STRETCH

Sciatica pain is triggered when vertebrae in the

spine compress. This stretch helps create space

in the spine to relieve pressure on the sciatic

nerve.

1. Sit on the ground with your legs extended

straight out with your feet flexed upward.

2. Bend your right knee and place your foot

flat on the floor on the outside of your opposite

knee.

3. Place your left elbow on the outside of your

right knee to help you gently turn your body

toward the right.

4. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat three times,

then switch sides.

STANDING HAMSTRING

STRETCH

This stretch can help ease pain and tightness in

the hamstring caused by sciatica.

1. Place your right foot on an elevated surface

at or below your hip level. This could be a chair,

ottoman, or step on a staircase. Flex your foot

so your toes and leg are straight. If your knee

tends to hyperextend, keep a slight bend in it.

2. Bend your body forward slightly toward

your foot. The further you go, the deeper the

stretch. Do not push so far that you feel pain.

3. Release the hip of your raised leg downward

as opposed to lifting it up. If you need help

easing your hip down, loop a yoga strap or long

exercise band over your right thigh and under

your left foot.

4. Hold for at least 30 seconds, and then repeat

on the other side.

EXERCISE WITH CARE

Be cautious and work with the flexibility of your

body. If you attend a class or watch YouTube

videos, those people have been practicing for a

while. Don’t compare yourself or push yourself.

Flow with your body and if you have kind of

pain, you should stop. You can try again at

another time.

YOGANZ

RELAUNCHED BY

EXERCISE NZ

YOGA

LIVING

LIFE

Yoga New Zealand (YogaNZ), the national

yoga body for yoga in Aotearoa New Zealand,

was relaunched yesterday.

First established by Yoga Australia three years

ago, it is now operationally supported by

ExerciseNZ.

With its own national yoga council guiding its

operation, YogaNZ becomes 100 percent New

Zealand run and operated, ExerciseNZ chief

executive Richard Beddie says.

“We support all forms of movement and

physical activity. We know hundreds of

thousands of Kiwis regularly practice yoga

and the numbers have more than doubled in

the last 10 years. Twenty years ago, it would

have been a small fraction of one percent.

“We are backing YogaNZ as part of the

greater physical activity and movement space,

and their annual event, the hauora yoga

conference is now part of YogaNZ’s offering.

“YogaNZ also now links with global yoga

networks and initiatives to pursue best

practice and facilitate the two-way sharing

of knowledge. This significantly helps to

enhance the international standing of yoga in

Aotearoa New Zealand.

“Yoga is practised by more than 100,000

Kiwis at more than 500 yoga studios and

classes around New Zealand, making it one

of the fastest growing physical activities in the

country.

Yoga is valuable as an activity in its own

right, as well as being complementary to

other exercise activities. It is common now

for regular gym users to add yoga into their

fitness regimes.

In addition to benefiting the physical body,

yoga also has a profound effect on mental

and emotional health, including our ability

to maintain equanimity in a world constantly

pulling us in so many different directions.

Yoga creates a bridge of care, affecting all

aspects of our health and bringing us to a

place of optimal health.

“Studies show that yoga may help improve

mental health, heart health, which is an

essential component of overall health

reduce several risk factors for heart disease

and improve heart conditions alone or in

combination with a healthy lifestyle,” Beddie

says.

YogaNZ Council chair Heather Robinson

says yoga therapy is now a growing activity

where experienced yoga teachers with

additional training as specialists teach yoga

in a therapeutic setting, often as helpful

support to medical and other complementary

treatments.

“Yoga also improves quality of life. It is

becoming increasingly common as an adjunct

therapy to improve well-being for many

individuals.

“Relief from stress is also a key factor. Yoga

improves the body, calms the mind and helps

bring balance into our lives.

“Stress is almost a given in a developed

country and, as a result, the mindful

component of yoga is so beneficial and

desired. While yoga can vary in physical

intensity, it always provides people with the

best methods of being mindful, which is

something that so many people benefit from

and seek in today’s busy lifestyles,” Robinson

says.

PREVENTED

The attendees and teachers of the

September 2019 Dangerous Decibels

training program

LIVING

LIFE

HEARING

“New Zealand is heading towards

more than one in five kiwis having

often preventable hearing loss due to

noise, particularly from such activities

as extra loud music players, concerts

and music, particularly when delivered

through headphones and ear buds

from YouTube and Bluetooth.” Says

Tony Rush, President of Hearing NZ

Dangerous Decibels is a course which

enables educators to run trainings in

colleges, schools and kindergartens

on the dangers of excess noise, the

irrevocable damage to hearing it

can cause, and on how to protect

yourself and your hearing health.

More importantly, according to Dr

David Welch, both the course and the

ultimate experience in classes around

the country is designed to be fun.

“It’s the fun and interaction that excites

the imagination and creates deeper

learning that can stay with children

over time”, according to Dr Welch. “It’s

the fun and deep understanding that

changes behaviours”.

The Dangerous Decibels (or DD)

course is a joint venture between

Auckland University and Hearing New

Zealand. DD was originally created

by a number of North American

Universities and has been developed

further in New Zealand and Singapore.

The sixteen attendees on the twoday

course are drawn from Hearing

New Zealand affiliated members

throughout the country. The DD team

involves experts in Audiology, Health

and Safety, Auditory Physiology, and

Health Promotion, and Carolynne

Riley, from Hearing NZ who may

well be the world’s most experienced

DD Educator: she has taught

approximately 19,000 people.

Carolynne Riley not only works

as a Hearing Educator at Hearing

Hastings but is the Frontline staff

representative on the National Board

at Hearing NZ. Carolynne believes

“education is the direction we need to

go in to reduce the incidence of noise

induced hearing loss (NIHL). NIHL

is easily preventable; the DD training

delivers this message in an interactive

and memorable way. Our hearing is

precious but when it’s gone, it’s gone, it

doesn’t come back!”

Students discover just how important

it can be to “Turn it Down!”, “Walk

Away” and how to “Protect Ears”. With

the help of scientific tools, students

measure sound and learn about

decibels. They explore sound, the way

it travels, and how they can

protect their hearing for

years to come!

One attendee, commented

that “The Dangerous

Decibels training

programme is a valuable

tool to have, it helps us to

educate people (young and

old) to protect their hearing

because once it’s gone it

won’t come back.”

Noise induced hearing

loss can be prevented.

DIABETES AWARENESS

Diabetes and Arthritis aid

gets amazing feedback!

• Since using the Aircycle the swelling

in my legs and feet have decreased

dramatically, my ulcerated toe has started

to heal and all the pain from my toe has

gone. The toes on my other foot have

stopped tingling and getting sore on the

tips and they are back to a healthy pink

colour. I am now able to walk much

further without pain.”- Richard UK.

• “ Within 2 weeks of using the Aircycle

my ulcer was starting to heal and in

6 weeks it was completely healed. My

physio said it was because I was exercising

more. It’s good to be able to do something

whilst sitting, especially when it’s so easy

yet effective.”- Jane, Toowomba

• “The Aircycle is even better than the

information says. The pain in my knees has

gone and although I use a walker I don’t

need it around the house anymore. I can

move more freely and have much less pain

in both my hands and feet. My feet are

warmer too and now I don’t need bed socks

which I’ve worn for years” Gay, Rotorua

Listed with Medsafe and shown by

hospitals, rest homes, diabetes clinics,

podiatrists and physiotherapists to be

helpful for a variety of circulatory and joint

problems in hands, shoulders, feet and legs,

the AIRCYCLE helps strengthen muscles

for improved balance and mobility.

Keep your joints and muscles moving

gently while sitting having coffee, reading,

watching TV, working at a desk or

travelling by car or plane.

The family &

The theme for World Diabetes Day and

Canterbury Diabetes Month, November,

2019 is “The Family and Diabetes”. The

aim of this campaign is to:

• Raise awareness of the impact that

diabetes has on the family and support

network of those affected.

• Promote the role of the family in the

management, care, prevention and

education of all forms of diabetes.

Diabetes Christchurch Society (the first

ever diabetes society in New Zealand)

relocated to their new premises at 21

Carlyle Street, Sydenham in early April

with the CEO of the CDHB, David

Meates officially opening the premises.

In Canterbury we have over 21,000

people with known diabetes and another

20,000 people have pre-diabetes,

and many of these don’t know it.

Approximately 11% have type 1 diabetes

and around 86% have type 2 diabetes.

There is correspondingly a significant

rise in gestational diabetes. People with

diabetes account for 4.1% of the enrolled

meaningful connections with those

people affected by or at risk of diabetes.

We want every person affected by, or at

risk of diabetes in Canterbury to have

access to the support needed to live a full

and active life.

Our campaign will focus on healthy

eating, diabetes education and exercise

as the key factors in the fight against

diabetes and keeping well.

Healthy eating, education and exercise:

• Can help prevent the onset of type 2

diabetes

• Is an important part of the effective

management of all types of diabetes to

help avoid complications

• Healthy foods will help effectively

manage all types of diabetes

Many complications can be picked

up in their early stages by screening

programmes. The earlier a person is

diagnosed, the earlier treatment can be

initiated in order to reduce the risk of

harmful and costly

complications. A

person can have type

2 diabetes for several

years without showing

any symptoms, during

which time high

blood glucose is silently

damaging the body. There is therefore

an urgent need to screen, diagnose and

provide appropriate treatments and

information to people with diabetes. Our

will highlight cost-effective solutions

McClure bats through adversity

• By Gordon Findlater

TWO HUNDREDS in as

many innings is a good sign

Canterbury batsman Ken

McClure is on the road to

putting a couple of “pretty

frustrating” years behind him.

The 25-year-old scored 121

from 125 deliveries on Saturday

to help East Christchurch

Shirley to a 152-run victory over

Heathcote in the premiership

one-day competition.

He followed the white ball ton

up with an even more impressive

red ball century on Monday in a

three-day match for Canterbury

A against Otago A. Batting at

No 3, McClure scored 196 before

being bowled by former Black

Caps spinner Mark Craig.

Last year McClure was forced

to retire hurt twice in the space

of three weeks. In October, he

was struck on the helmet after a

bouncer from Black Caps bowler

Neil Wagner. In his first match

back after the concussion, he

lasted just seven deliveries before

suffering the same fate to former

Black Caps paceman Mitchell

McClenaghan.

The two blows to the head led

to McClure suffering concussion

symptoms and anxiety around

being hit again.

“You go through the day and

you just don’t feel yourself.

Everything’s a bit slow and

you’ve constantly got a headache.

You just don’t feel right for a long

time and you can’t really sleep,”

said McClure.

Then you get in the nets and

you’ve got to face some nasty

short stuff – it didn’t make for a

great time.”

Following the incidents,

McClure sought help from a

sports psychologist to overcome

the fear of being hit again and

turn his focus to scoring runs.

“It took me a while to get over

it, but I’ve done a lot of work

with my mental skills and I feel

in a good place,” he said.

“I believe I’m a good player

of the short ball, I’ve just got hit

in the head by two pretty good

guys that bowl it well, being Neil

and Mitch.

“[Scoring the two centuries]

gives you that reassurance that

you’re actually training the right

things and doing the right things

in the nets.”

McClure says getting his form

back with the bat has been a case

of ensuring his head is right on

IT APPEARS World Rugby is

putting in a late bid to be labelled

2019’s most politically correct

organisation after media in the

United Kingdom reported it had

handed out a four-figure fine to

England for their V formation

during the All Blacks haka.

If the rumours are correct,

World Rugby could be set to step

up their PC policing in 2020 –

specifically in cultural values.

The current rumours

swirling are that staff from the

organisation could be placed

strategically around Eden Park

during All Blacks tests next year

to hand out on-the-spot fines to

anyone who mumbles their way

through the Maori verse of the

national anthem.

The fine for the V formation

is by all accounts a slap across

the wrist at less than $5000. But

The concussions came on the

back of a 2017/18 season, which

saw him stood down for much

of the Canterbury campaign. In

January 2018, he pleaded guilty

figure out why ball carriers were

being sent off for running hard

at poor tackling techniques, or

why tacklers were receiving the

same punishment for ball head

high tackles at the height usually

associated with knee level.

The fine is believed to have

been handed out due to England

breaking a protocol which

dictates teams must be at least

20m away, behind their own 10m

lines for the haka.

It is not yet understood if the

cameramen seen lying on their

stomachs during the haka have

been fined or not for the way

they presented themselves.

situation is the sad

‘You end up bringing cricket

home and it doesn’t make life very

enjoyable at all’ – Ken McClure

2 Troup Drive, Riccarton Phone: 348 6020 Open 7 days 11am to late www.speightstowerjunction.co.nz

“If you’ve only got on the field

going well and everything else is

not going well, then eventually

cricket’s going to take a U-turn

and it’s going to be tough. You

end up bringing cricket home

and it doesn’t make life very

enjoyable at all,” he said.

“With me, it’s probably been

nailing my stuff off the field.

My personal life, my diet, my

sleeping patterns and just

everyday life.

“This year I’ve really been

trying to nail the basics around

nutrition and sleep and making

good training habits. I think that

will lead to scoring more runs.”

In 2016, McClure burst on to

the domestic scene as a 21-yearold

with 193 not out to help

Canterbury chase down 397 and

record a five-wicket win over

Otago in a four-day match.

Now he says his focus is on

the future and re-cementing his

in brief

Two wins puts Pride

in top spot

Canterbury United Pride

have reclaimed top spot in the

National Women’s League after

back-to-back wins over Southern

United over Labour Weekend.

On Saturday, the Pride scored

first-half goals through Bel van

Noorden and Gabi Rennie to

win 2-0 in Dunedin. On Monday

they welcomed their southern

rivals to English Park, but found

themselves trailing 1-2 at halftime.

However, a brace from

Britney-Lee Nicholson helped

the side complete the weekend

in style 3-2. The Pride went top

after rivals Northern Spirit were

held to a 0-0 draw by Auckland.

On Saturday the Pride head to

Wellington to play Capital.

Matchplay title to

teen golfer

Teen golfer Hayato Miya won

the Canterbury Matchplay title

on Monday by defeating Jacob

Roberts after 19 holes. The

16-year-old was two up after 15

holes, but dropped consecutive

holes to go all square into the

18th. Roberts had a putt to

win on the 18th green which

he missed, before Miya sealed

victory at the 19th. The women’s

title was won by Maddie May

who made a bright start which

she maintained to win five and

four. Titles also went to Brett

Turner in the men’s master and

Seb May in the under-19 men’s.

Alexander extends

lead in SuperUtes

Tom Alexander extended his

lead in the SuperUtes Series

– a support series for the V8

Supercars – after a win and two

podiums at the Gold Coast.

The former St Thomas’ student

finished second and third in

the opening two races, then

completed his weekend with

a victory, to secure the round

honours. Alexander continues to

lead the series, 60 points clear of

Cameron Crick. The final round

of the series is in Newcastle from

November 22 to 24.

Dragons face a difficult task first

up when they visit defending

champions Eastern

Suburbs in the opening

round of the national

league on Sunday.

The Dragons have been

together for seven weeks

and played one preseason

match against – a

2-1 win against Southern

United. New coach Lee

Padmore says he was “relatively

happy” with what he saw from

the side.

He believes character will

be key for the Dragons this

campaign and wants the side

to epitomise Canterbury as a

region with the way they play

the game.

“It’s going to be

hardworking, it’s going

to be in your face,

it’s going to be one

of those teams that

nobody’s ever going to

get a sniff in regards

to having any time to

dictate a game against

us,” said Padmore.

“We pushed some boundaries

in regards to the way the boys

think and what we’re going to

“I’d heard some rumours

Jonty Rhodes may be turning

out for South Africa,” said

Nuttall.

The Zimbabwe side are also expected

to feature a trio of former

internationals including Eddo

Brandes who is remembered best

for arguably cricket’s greatest ever

sledge.

During a test against

Australia in 2003 Glenn

McGrath became frustrated at

being unable to dismiss Brandes.

McGrath then asked: “Why are

you so fat?” to which Brandes

replied: “Because every time I

shag your wife she gives me a

chocolate biscuit.”

New Zealand is one of 12 teams

contesting the World Cup. They

will play West Indies, Australia,

Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe and

Canada in their pool.

The tournament takes place

from March 11-24.

Exotic GTs for Ruapuna endurance

CROWD PLEASER: The Chevrolet Camaro GT3 of John

McIntrye and Simon Gilbertson is expected to be amongst the

front-runners at Ruapuna on Saturday. ​

Gilbertson accomplished an impressive

feat of lapping the entire

field an hour into the three-hour

race. Unfortunately the effort

was undone after the team suffered

suspension damage during

their first pit stop. This dropped

them down the order and they

have to do this year to be a little

bit different in order to compete

. . . we haven’t got the finances

of a few of the top teams, but

we’ve got to make sure we’re

sweet in the other departments

of football.”

The Dragons squad is

made up of predominantly

local players, but they bought

in the services of defender

Tom Scott who moves south

from the Wellington Phoenix

academy, former Canadian

under-20 international

forward Calum Ferguson and

Australian midfielder Reece

Dalton.

unfortunately retired with more

front suspension problems later

in the race.

“I don’t want to sound defeated,

but we go into every round

really up against it pace-wise,

but we obviously found that in

Timaru which is a twisty circuit.

Sunday’s match against

Eastern Suburbs kicks off at

4pm and will be shown live on

Sky Sport.

Dragons squad – Eddie

Ashton, Dan Terris, Benji

Lapslie, Dan Schwarz, Tom

Scott, George King, Luke

Tongue, Haris Zeb, Reece

Dalton, James Pendrigh,

Juan Chang, Sean Liddicoat,

Calum Ferguson,

Cory Mitchell, Harrison

Bowman, Aaron Clapham,

Sam Field, Jacob Richards,

Sam Lapslie, Danny

Knight, Abdul Khalif.

INTERNATIONAL:

Andrew Nuttall is

the oldest played

named in the

New Zealand

squad for the

Over-50s Cricket

World Cup.

We had made some real gains in

corner speed, tyre life and fuel

economy,” said McIntrye.

“So, we’ll be happy to go in as

the underdogs, but if we can get

our nose in front that Camaro

could become very, very wide.”

Last year the three-hour race

was won by Foster and Reid in

their Audi R8 after qualifying

on pole with a blistering time of

1min 18.3sec The pair lead this

year’s championship after wins at

Teretonga and Levels, and a third

place finish at Motorsport Park.

These are of some of the

fastest cars ever raced in New

Zealand with a roof on them,”

said McIntyre.

“If you think about things like

the Trans-ams of the day which

were very quick cars, they were

only in the one-minute twenties,

so to be two seconds up on that

is phenomenal.”

Qualifying for the one and

three-hour races begin in the

morning, followed by the onehour

race. The three-hour race

begins at 2pm.


With the Canterbury

United Dragons

beginning their national

league campaign

on Sunday away to

defending champions

Eastern Suburbs on

Sunday we continue

our Canterbury sporting

icon series by taking a

look at one of the side’s

most prominent players

from their only grand

final appearance in

2006. Gordon Findlater

caught up with Stuart

Kelly

GROWING UP in Glasgow,

Stuart Kelly went on to be part

of the youth and reserve team

set-up at Rangers in the late

1990s and early 2000s.

At the time, Scottish football

was a far bigger force than it is

today. The first-team featured

the likes of Brian Laudrap, Rino

Gattuso, Paul Gascoigne, Andrei

Kanchelskis and Giovanni van

Bronckhorst. The club even came

close to signing Brazil legend

Ronaldo in 1997.

“With the reserve team, there

was five or six internationals

playing for us at any given time,”

said Kelly.

“You don’t look at them like

that when you’re there. They’re

a colleague or a friend and

ultimately the competition. I’m

quite proud of some of the guys I

played with. Gattuso was a young

boy that came in and trained with

us. He got fast tracked to the firstteam

pretty quickly.”

During the striker/midfielder’s

earliest days with the youth team

he also doubled as a helper for

the club’s kit man. The job gave

him a front row seat for a piece of

tabloid headline news at the time

when Gascgoine was accused

by Danish international Erik Bo

Andersen for having urinated on

him during a training-ground

prank.

“My job was to look after the

first-team gear, so you’re in and

out of the changing room and

I remember it came out in the

papers that Paul Gascgoine was

p***ing on one of the guys in the

showers . . . I was actually there

when he was doing it. He was

just talking away and p***ing on

him at the same time,” he said.

After not having his contract

renewed by Rangers in 2001

Kelly went onto play for Scottish

non-league club Shetlesston

FC – who had also secured the

services of former Celtic and

Republic of Ireland international

Tommy Coyne. He then joined

East Stirlingshire FC where

he scored a number of goals.

However, the team struggled for

results at the time.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

“It was at a time where Arsenal

were ‘the invincibles.’ Everybody

in the UK used to bet for [Thierry]

Henry to score and for Arsenal

to win and to me to score for

my team, but for us to get beat . .

. that was the running joke at the

time, but I was loving it because it

gave me exposure,” he said.

In 2003 Kelly made the move

to Christchurch to play for Canterbury

United with the goal of

staking a claim for a spot with an

A-League club due to the competition

being set to begin in 2005.

His most memorable campaign

came in 2005/06 which saw

him score a number of goals for

Canterbury en route to their one

and only grand-final appearance.

However, Kelly says he “wasn’t

a great person to be around” at

the time, due to his first major

relationship break-up coinciding

with his team’s playoff run.

After finishing third in the

league, the side defeated Manuwatu

on penalties. They then

went onto lose 0-3 to Auckland

in the next phase.

They absolutely spanked us.

The game was over after 15 minutes

and I think we were upset

about that,” he said.

However, they then defeated

Team Wellington to set up a

rematch with Auckland in the

grand final.

“Auckland were different then,

they were a pretty direct physical

team and I think within the first

30 seconds there was an all-in

fight. I remember Ben Sigmund

slapping someone in the face . . .

that ignited the game,” he said.

Kelly scored two goals in the

match which finished 3-3 after

regular time. However, Canterbury

lost agonisingly in a penalty

shootout.

Following the 2006-07 campaign

with Canterbury, Kelly

Global striker brings experience to Halswell

BIG MOMENT: Kelly celebrates a crucial go-ahead goal

for Cashmere Technical in the 2013 Chatham Cup final at

English Park.

Thursday October 31 2019 The Star

moved to Melbourne and played

for Oakleigh Cannons and South

Melbourne FC before returning

to New Zealand and having

short stints with Otago United

and Auckland City.

Kelly also had stints in Thailand

and Finland before returning

to Christchurch permanently

in 2013 to play for Cashmere

Technical in the Mainland

Premier League and Canterbury

United in the national league.

He played a crucial role in Tech

winning back to back Chatham

Cup titles in 2013 and 2014. He

scored the second of the side’s

three goals in their 3-1 win over

Waitakere City at English Park

in 2013. A year later won the Jack

Batty Trophy for a man of the

match performance in Tech’s 2-1

win over Central United.

“That second year all of our

games were on the road and we

still won it . . . the biggest disappointment

is that we were two

games away from breaking the

all-time record for consecutive

victories,” said Kelly.

Outside of football Kelly managed

and owned a Frontrunner

store in Northlands Shopping

Centre until taking up a role as

Halswell United’s director of

football last year.

Kelly coaches Halswell’s

first-team in the Canterbury

Championship League and also

played a handful of games for the

team. However, arthritis in his

knee prevented him from being

a regular.

There’s no pain or anything,

but if I train and play it flares up

. . . I’ve come to the conclusion I

can’t train at the level I want to

be and therefore won’t be playing

any more,” he said.

Halswell were a dominant

force in Christchurch in the

1990s and 2000s. However, have

slumped in more recent times

and were relegated from the

MPL in 2016. Kelly believes the

club is now putting the right

pieces in place to help return to

club to Canterbury’s premier

competition in the coming years.

Coaching appears to be a path

Kelly wants to take further. He is

also currently doing a masters in

sports management through the

Johan Cruyff Institute.

Boot goes into exciting Mazda 3

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

IT’S TOO early to be talking

about the 2019 New Zealand

Motoring Writer’s Guild Car of

the Year award, the nominations

have only just been released and

judging won’t be complete until

December.

However, I’m pleased to say

the new Mazda3 is on the list of

finalists. I say this because the

latest generation model has made

quite an impact on me, it is one

very fine vehicle.

Effectively, I’ve driven three

models back-to-back, two hatches

and a sedan, and each stands out

as being competent, quality built,

efficient and purposeful, what’s

more it’s such a darn nice car to

drive and to be in.

I’ve mentioned many times

in these columns how I’m very

much a sedan buyer and although

I’ve owned hatches and liftbacks

over the years, I’m always drawn

to the traditional concept.

This evaluation surrounds

the Mazda3 sedan, and it would

be the car for me if I had funds

to buy new in today’s market.

I would settle for the entry

level GSX at $36,595, but the

evaluation car – a Limited at

$48,795 – is a model which

borders on the luxury car class for

just a fraction of the cost.

As opposed to the GSX with

its 2-litre engine, the GTX and

Limited both get a 2.5-litre

four-cylinder engine. Each has

its merits, and both deliver

outstanding performance.

The 2.5 is rated at 139kW and

252Nm, although the outputs

are reached a little tall in the rev

band at 6000rpm and 4000rpm

respectively, the management

protocols are structured so that

effective torque is spread broadly.

Drive is carried to the front

wheels through a traditional sixspeed

automatic transmission.

In limited form the driver has

the use of paddle shifters should

he or she want to get involved in

the gearchange process. Shifts are

smooth and satisfactorily quick,

the engine has no trouble filling

the gaps between gears but with

six cogs the ratios are quite close,

so there are no surprises there.

The gearing is also structured

so that the engine isn’t loaded

at highway speed, at 100km/h it

is turning over at just 1900rpm,

quite relaxed and sipping fuel

MAZDA3 LIMITED SEDAN: Increase in boot space.

at the instantaneous rate of

5.5-litres per 100km (51mpg).

That contributes to the efficient

7.6l/100km (37mpg) dash panel

average during my time with the

evaluation car. Mazda claims

a combined cycle average of

6.5l/100km (44mpg), which

correlates well with my figures.

In terms of figures, the new 3

also has a good turn of speed,

it’s no rocket, but with an 8.8sec

time to make 100km/h from a

standstill, it easily keeps pace with

traffic and disgraces cars with a

far higher pedigree. A lot of that

can be attributed to its relative

lightweight, at 1388kg, it’s not

burdened, and is a tribute to the

Mazda engineers who, early in

the company’s manufacturing

process, realised how important it

is to build cars minimising weight

in all components.

That also has a beneficial effect

on handling. The Mazda3 is tight

and composed when presented

with quick corners. I took the

test car on a short hilly burst and

enjoyed its directional accuracy

and stability. Saying that, the new

model doesn’t have the benefit

of four-wheel independent

suspension, there are struts up

front, but the rear is a torsion

beam-type linking the two rear

wheels. Nevertheless, I’m yet to

find a reason why I don’t like it.

If today’s new car buyer isn’t

hell-bent on buying a sports utility

vehicle, then the next option would

generally be a hatch or liftback.

That being the case, the Mazda3

sedan would probably be a final

choice for many. However, it’s there

for those like me who are drawn to

having good boot space. Yes, the

load space in the Mazda3 sedan

is deep and cavernous – 444-litres

of cargo can be carried there. That

compares to 295-litres of the hatch

with the rear seats upright.

There’s no compromise in

styling; while the hatchback

• Price – Mazda3 Limited

sedan, $48,795

• Dimensions – Length,

4460mm; width, 1795mm;

height, 1440mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

2488cc, 139kW,

252Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.8sec

• Fuel usage – 6.5l/100km

is bold and daring around the

C-pillar, the sedan is a little more

conservative, but it still looks

smart and desirable.

Limited specification is Mazda’s

high grade variant, and it misses

out on nothing. All the traditional

items are fitted including the latest

generation i-Activesense suite of

safety technologies.

It’s been a big year for Mazda

New Zealand, it has launched

a raft of new models and I’ve

evaluated all of those.

Each stands out for varying

reasons but the one thing

common to all is the involvement

and enjoyment that can be

gleaned from being in the

company’s line-up. It is indicative

of the passion it has for making

engaging, mainstream cars that

punch well above their weight

in terms of where they sit in the

market.

NEW LISTINGS

Looking for a Property?

What really counts

You are in the market for a new property,

scrolling the Internet, examining

properties for sale and zeroing in on

those with potential. They might be

in locations that offer cheaper land,

larger houses, or convenience to work

or school. You may have visited show

homes and open homes becoming

confused, overwhelmed or swept

away with emotional factors like having

everything new, or extra features such as

three car garaging.

To be happy with your choice, list the

features that you need, considering:

; Family space – Is there room for

the children to play indoors and

for television and entertainment

units? Should this be open plan or

separated?

; Kitchen – What needs to be in your

kitchen? How serious are you about

a butler’s pantry? Is it a whim or

something that offers a practical

solution to the way you use your

kitchen?

; Bedroom sizes – What are optimum

sizes? Smaller bedrooms may

translate to slightly lower building

costs while extra space can be useful.

When looking at existing homes,

consider whether the size of each

bedroom is sufficient.

; Garaging – A standard double garage

once two cars are parked there offers

little space for the toys. What toys

do you have and could they live with

the lawnmower in a garden shed, a

cheaper option to three car garaging?

If the budget allows and a larger

garage with workshop is important,

make it a selection priority.

; Size of land – Lifestyle properties

offer space for children, pets, hobbies,

Home & Property appears every Thursday, delivered FREE

throughout Christchurch

M: 021 300 567 E: mike@starmedia.kiwi

an expansive garden and perhaps a

home-run business but they require

work so are not for everyone and

a compact section might be more

sensible if a tight budget or busy

lifestyle.

; Bathrooms – Second and third

bathrooms are great in homes with

teenagers and a wet shower room is

ideal for young children. A bath might

be fashionable though is often not

used and its absence could mean a

more spacious bathroom.

; Laundry – Would a laundry in the

garage do the job?

; Storage – How much storage do you

need? Weigh up what can truly be

stored in the garage once vehicles are

in, a preference in winter. Garages vary

in size so check the size to ensure your

vehicles will fit. Look also at where

else the house offers storage capacity

such as in hall cupboards, a large hot

water cylinder cupboard, wardrobes

(check their width and depth), walk-in

robe, attic storage trusses, as well as

the potential for hooks and shelving

in the garage for bikes, tools, garden

equipment and even kayaks.

; Off-street parking – How many

vehicles can be parked on the

driveway? Will this space be sufficient?

; Garden - Is there sufficient space

for your children to play or for

entertaining?

A checklist will allow you to determine

what will suit your needs, the point of

the exercise, saving you time looking at

properties or potential house designs

while assisting you to decide whether

to buy a new or existing home with

both options having advantages and

disadvantages.

‘excellent value for money’

1/2 Chook & Chips with

slaw & gravy for $28

Tonight’s

Dinner Deal

Tuesday

5-8PM

Coming Up

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.
