Reg’s Royal cooking buddy

MASTERCHEF: Reg Stedman was lost for words when the Duchess of Cornwall appeared beside him at his cooking class.

PHOTO PEGASUS HEALTH

• By Sophie Cornish

REG STEDMAN is usually

lively and full of jokes – but the

92-year-old was left speechless

when he was joined by a special

sous chef during his cooking

class.

The Duchess of Cornwall visited

the cooking course Mr Stedman

was on during her visit with

Prince Charles to Christchurch.

Everyone on the course had

been vetted by police prior to

the visit, so he knew Camilla

would be there.

But Reg was a little more

than surprised when he was

placed next to Camilla as they

prepared a bean salad.

Mr Stedman, who hails from

Essex in England, and came to

New Zealand in 1958 to marry

his pen pal, was lost for words

standing next to Camilla.

“Backward in coming forward,”

he said.

“It never dawned on me, I was

surprised, I thought ‘what have

I done to deserve this?

“I’m quite a retiring person, it

wouldn’t have bothered me if I

had been standing behind two

or three people.”

Mr Stedman shook Camilla’s

hand and spoke with her about

her farm in Gloucestershire, and

whether the food was organic.

“In hindsight, I realised all

eyes were probably on me because

I was with the knife!,” he

said of the security staff which

follow the Royals.

for

Christmas

family

event

• By Sophie Cornish

CALLS ARE being made to make

one of the city’s biggest familyfriendly

events alcohol-free.

Police received several reports

of disorderly behaviour and

assaults, all involving youths,

during and after the annual

Christmas in the Park in Hagley

Park on Saturday, which attracted

40-50,000 people.

But a spokeswoman for the

event Deborah Delaney said it

was run well and there were no

alcohol-related incidents.

“We never have any alcohol

problems; it has always been a

nice family event. It’s a free event,

so we don’t have any gates.”

A woman whose son and friend

were assaulted and robbed, leaving

her son in a serious condition,

says alcohol is playing a big part

in the disorderly and violent behaviour

at the event.

“I think there should be no

alcohol involved. I think they

should do it alcohol-free and have

more security and policing, it

would help. Even if they do

a family section for young

children and then another side for

people who don’t have younger

children.

Politics, murder mysteries,

Elvis shows and soon TV

NEWS 3

in brief

• By Louis Day

BY DAY Aaron Keown works as

a city councillor. At night he can

be found hosting murder mystery

events, playing in a cover band

and could soon become a TV star.

Keown, who represents the

city council’s Harewood Ward,

features as one of the leading

characters in locally produced

comedy series Don’t Be Frank

which has approached TVNZ to

get the show on demand.

The show, which is currently

in its pilot phase, follows firsttime

film producer Sharon in

her journey working alongside

an amateur film director called

Frank, played by Keown, in making

their first motion picture – an

apocalyptic, superhero, romantic,

zombie-war film.

It also features well-known

actor Jimmy James Fletcher,

commonly known as “Jimmy the

dwarf” from his time working on

Jono and Ben at 10.

Keown said he hoped the series

would lead to more productions

being made in Christchurch.

“Ever since I have been an

elected member I have wanted to

grow the screen industry in Canterbury

and I thought this would

be one way to do that,” he said.

“We have got really talented

people in this town that don’t get

to make this kind of stuff.”

ACTION: City councillor Aaron Keown will play Frank in locally-produced comedy series

Don’t Be Frank.

Director Nick McLean

compared the series to British

television series The Office and

Keown’s character to its main

character David Brent.

“David Brent is very much a

similar character to Frank in terms

of just being an embarrassing

character to watch, some social

situations they just don’t handle

very well at all but just feel like they

are God’s gift,” he said.

McLean said the series will

be shot in Canterbury, by

Cantabrians.

“We really want to base it around

Canterbury as much as we can.

A big part of the storyline is that

Frank wants to be the first big

movie director in the South Island.”

He said they were looking at

shooting in locations such as

Ferrymead Heritage Park, the red

zone and the Canterbury Plains

amongst other areas.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

• By Kate Todd

THREE WOMEN say Peter

Ellis’ “death-dance” is taking

them to breaking point, after

claims he sexually abused their

daughters in 1991.

The Supreme Court is deciding

if an appeal Ellis lodged to clear

his name can proceed, after he

died from cancer in September.

The former Christchurch

Civic Creche worker always

maintained his innocence after

being found guilty of 16 counts

of sexual abuse in 1993, and

repeatedly sought to overthrow

the convictions.

But the mothers say their

daughters have been unable

to move on for nearly three

decades, and they worry other

sexual abuse survivors will be

put off seeking justice.

Ruth*, a teacher, said the words

she heard from her daughter

shortly after Ellis’ arrest, were

still painful to recall.

“I said to her that Peter wasn’t

working at the crèche anymore.

She was at school at this point

and she said: ‘Oh, why not?’”

“I said, ‘well, apparently he’s

been hurting some children’. She

didn’t say anything. I said, ‘has

he hurt you?’ And she said, ‘yes’.

I said, ‘why haven’t you told me?’

and she said, ‘because he said

he would burn your eyes out if I

told’.”

The jury found Ellis not guilty

of abusing Ruth’s daughter.

But over the next few years,

Ruth said her daughter would

continue bringing up strange

memories of Ellis, including him

“sexing” her.

“It was true but I really didn’t

want it to be true,” she said.

She said it was just the start of

28 years of trauma for her and

her daughter.

Ellis’ guilty verdict was the

subject of two police investigations,

trips to the Court of Appeal,

a Ministerial inquiry and

petitions calling for independent

reviews – and he became the focal

point of intense media coverage,

books and public support as

people criticised the reliability of

the children’s testimonies.

“Every time he tried to appeal

or, you know, sneezed, his photo

would be pretty much on the

front page of the newspaper and

splashed all over the news at

night,” Ruth said.

This year brought “a sense of

relief” for Ruth as she heard of

maintained

his innocence.

Ellis’ death and thought she’d

seen and heard the last of him.

That was followed by horror at

the revelation the Supreme Court

might still hear his final appeal.

It could consider whether there

was a miscarriage of justice due

to the children’s evidence being

improperly obtained, a lack of

expert evidence and unreliable

expert evidence at Ellis’ trial.

“Most people get to move on.

We haven’t been able to move on.

The children haven’t been able to

move on,” Ruth said.

At the start of the appeal

last month, Ellis’ lawyer Rob

Harrison acknowledged it was

a difficult situation and

mentioned the stress for the

complainants.

But another mother who felt

sickened by the possibility of the

appeal proceeding, said she’d

had to turn to anti-nausea tablets

to cope.

After the first claims against

Ellis in 1991, Angela’s* daughter

told her she too had been

touched inappropriately at the

crèche, and told to keep quiet or

else her mum would turn into a

frog.

The family spoke extensively

with the police about it, but

eventually chose not to file legal

proceedings to protect their

identities, and found safety living

in Australia for the daughter’s

primary school years.

But Angela, a nurse, described

the possibility of the appeal going

ahead as “devastating” and

“disrespectful” for victims.

She said she still doesn’t understand

the scepticism around

the case.

“A three-year-old is not going

to tell fibs . . . you can just tell

when a child’s not telling you

the truth. But this was totally

the truth. And that’s I think the

worst thing, is the children now

not being believed,” she said.

CITY COUNCIL chief executive

Dawn Baxendale has claimed

less than a third of her $30,000

relocation fee.

Mrs Baxendale revealed that

she has spent $6865 of her

$30,000 relocation fee yesterday

around how she spent it have

been kept under wraps.

The city council cited the privacy

of Mrs Baxendale in refusing

her relocation fee was spent.

Last week, her office refused

to release any details around the

relocation fee following a request

for the information under the

from The Press.

They also refused to release

information to The Star.

However, after meeting with

the end of last week over

his recent report which

alleged senior city council

staff had manipulated

members and the public,

she decided to release

some of the information

around the fee.

Mrs Baxendale and her

family relocated from

England where she was the chief

executive of the Birmingham

$495,000 salary, she received a

$30,000 relocation fee for her

“It’s a real pleasure to be for

“I do think it is so important as

Johanson calls for culture change

Yani

Johanson

• By Louis Day

SENIOR CITY councillor

Yani Johanson says there is a

strong need for a culture change

throughout the council.

The five-term city councillor

said he had to battle with city

council staff for the public release

of a report which he felt had

no reason to be made completely

private in the first place.

The report

from June

shows that

almost 1km

of concrete

kerb in the

Heathcote

Expressway did

not meet council

construction

specification

standards. The

report states that it could be released

on September 30 but was

not released until November 21.

Cr Johanson thought this was

a good example of some of the

concerns raised in the Chief

Ombudsman’s recent assessment

of the council which alleged

members of the executive leadership

team were manipulating

reports and withholding negative

information from elected members

and the public.

The report was originally kept

from the public to allow for

negotiations to occur between

the contractor and city council.

A city council spokesman said

negotiations “largely finished in

October.”

“Once the reason for a report

being public excluded no longer

applies reports are reviewed to

consider any commercial sensitivity

or privacy issues that may

require specific information to

be permanently withheld,” the

city council spokesman said.

The report states 794m of

concrete kerb required testing

after 28 days but were not tested

by the contractor from between

40 to 185 days.

The report acknowledges having

to replace the non-conforming

sections of kerb as having

a “high potential for council to

incur reputational damage.”

The engineer’s regular reminders

to take concrete cores

for testing were not acted on by

the contractor until a much later

time,” the report reads.

Work on the site started on

November 11 and is expected

to finish in February, affected

residents were not notified until

the day work started.

Cr Johanson said he felt the report

could have been released and

residents notified a lot sooner.

There needs to be higher

checks for things going into public

excluded, there should only

be very specific information that

is sensitive that goes into public

excluded not the whole report.

“This shows that this is not

just a management issue but also

governance issue and that is what

needs to be addressed, we need to

take responsibility. The Ombudsman’s

report talks to a culture

and I don’t think you can separate

that culture from the elected

members. The elected members

had every right to say no.’’

The Linwood Central Heathcote

Community Board adopted staff

recommendations to put the

report into public excluded in

June. Cr Johanson and former city

councillor Deon Swiggs were the

only two of the nine board members

The company was even

Council staff

in the firing

line for abuse

• By Louis Day

ABUSE, THREATS and assaults

are on the rise against city council

staff.

From July 2018 to June 2019, 114

acts of abuse, threats and assault

were made against city council

staff.

This is a 90 per cent increase

from the 60 made against city

council staff between 2017 and

2018, a 50 per cent per cent increase

from the 76 made between

2016 to 2017 and a 192 per cent

increase from the 39 made between

2015 to 2016.

City council manager of human

resources shared services Justine

Scott said most instances of abuse

related to verbal abuse and intimidating

behaviour.

She said the most commonly

reported abusive behaviour this

year came from individuals

working in libraries (38 per cent),

transport (30 per cent) and recreation

and sport (18 per cent).

The council takes all

threats and abuse against staff

very seriously. The council

trains staff on situational risk,

de-escalating challenging

situations and applying tactical

communications. Since 2012 393

council staff have attended this

training,” she said.

Christchurch is governed

they do in their spare

EVER SINCE new Burwood

Ward city councillor Phil

Mauger was a child he had an

affinity towards engines and

construction.

“I was always brought up

around engines and motors and

machinery and grease, much to

my mother’s dismay,” he said.

He would duck out of school to

watch the construction of the QE

II swimming pool.

Fourteen years ago he bought

legendary race car driver Denny

Hulme’s formula one McLaren

and raced it in amateur races

across the world in circuits such

as Brands Hatch, Silverstone and

Donnington Park in England,

as well as Laguna Seca Raceway

in California, Watkins Glen in

New York and Magny-Cours in

France.

“It took me all over the world,

it was bloody fantastic.”

A current project he is working

on is rebuilding a Chrysler air

raid siren. About 350 were made

in the United States in the 1950s

during the cold war era. The

main purpose of the siren was

to warn the public in the event

of a nuclear attack by the Soviet

Union.

The siren has an output of

138dB and can be heard as far

away as 40km away.

Cr Mauger said he plans to take

the siren to the Warbirds over

Wanaka air show.

Along with his city council

commitments, he spends one

day a week working at the family

business Maugers Contracting.

Pauline Cotter (Innes Ward)

wanted to do something that

as a teacher in the 70s, but then

learned to sew.

“That skill

with interesting

and varied work,

both in NZ and

Australia, mainly contracting for

myself,” she said.

Cr Cotter worked at TVNZ on

What Now and Play School, she

Mad Max movie.

Later, with her partner, she ran

a clothing business for 20 years,

and also ran a rental camper van

More police

presence for

Hoon Hay

• By Matt Slaughter

A SERGEANT and four police

officers will be dedicated to

policing the Hoon Hay area as of

early next year.

They will also serve South

Christchurch as a whole.

This comes after a community

meeting on Thursday organised

by Wigram MP Megan Woods

between about 70 concerned

residents, police and neighbourhood

support representatives to

discuss crime and safety concerns

in Hoon Hay.

Said Senior Sergeant Roy Appley

who was at the meeting: “I’ve

made a commitment to the people

that they’ll see an increase in visibility

of police presence.”

He said people can expect more

community police officers in “the

high visibility areas” including

parks and shopping areas and

more road policing in the area.

Hoon Hay Community

Association chairman Alastair

Berney said last week he has seen

residents reporting more crime,

particularly car break-ins recently.

Senior Sergeant Appley said these

issues were not raised in great detail

at the meeting and discussion was

more around how anti-social youth

behaviour can be addressed most

effectively.

CHANGES ARE being made

to the contentious $9.45 million

Collett’s Corner project planned

for Lyttelton in 2022.

But the developer says it is

not a reaction to residents’

opposition on former designs.

Ohu

Development,

the group

behind the

project, is

investigating

options to

have different

materials on

all four of

the buildings

proposed for Oxford and London

streets.

The city council requested the

changes as it did not want the

complex to appear as one single

structure and so it is more in

proportion with surrounding

buildings in Lyttelton.

The public has six weeks to

state their views on a resource

consent application for the

residential and commercial

development, which would

contain a health spa, restaurant,

gym, offices, retail activity and

26 residential units.

Ohu Development was the

first in New Zealand to run

a crowdfunding campaign

to help pay for a commercial

development.

The city council will take

feedback into consideration

when deciding whether or

not it will approve the group’s

application. Former designs saw

mixed feedback in August.

Residents were mainly

concerned that the building was

out of character with the current

township.

Lyttelton Residents’ Association

chairman Ken Maynard previously

said he was concerned the

complex was not aimed at locals.

“It’s quite big, it’s taller than

the other buildings in the street,”

he said.

Ohu Development founding

partner Camia Young said she

was unaware of any opposition

to the project and that the changes

are to satisfy the city council’s

urban design team.

“We are confident we can find

an elegant design solution, but

unfortunately we will likely lose

the ceramic tile facade.”

Ms Young said updated designs

will be completed soon.

During the five-week fundraising

campaign for the project,

370 people invested a total of

$504,000 and as the minimum

goal of $300,000 was met, the

project could go ahead.

However, because the $2

million target was not met,

the opening was pushed back

from 2020 to 2022 and another

crowdfunding campaign will be

run early next year.

Consultation closes on January 16.

Historic guns handed in by 82-year-old

• By Sophie Cornish

A SHOTGUN from the 1800s

and an even older ‘muzzle loader’

were two historic firearms

handed back at Canterbury’s buyback

events.

Derek Cockburn, 82, handed

over the guns, which date back

to the 1800s, at an Addington

Raceway event.

Second in charge of the Canterbury

firearms reform operation,

Acting Senior Sergeant Simon

Keith said the firearms were two

of several historic guns handed

back.

A specialised team has been

created to deal with firearms that

have historical or military significance,

with museums being

approached to see if they wish to

preserve the weapons.

However, Canterbury Museum

declined to preserve Mr Cockburn’s

firearms.

Said museum director Anthony

Wright: “Ultimately we

declined this offer. We had very

little information about the history

of these firearms, and they

didn’t appear to have any connection

to Canterbury’s history,

which is our focus. The shotgun

had a proof mark indicating it

was made in Dunedin, however,

so we recommended police offer

the firearms to Otago Museum

instead.”

Canterbury Museum already

has more than 200 firearms and

HISTORY: Two guns from the 1800s are some of several with historical or military

significance handed in during police’s buy-back events.

related objects in its collection.

Mr Cockburn’s only knowledge

of the guns, which he admits

have been hidden in a closet at

his home for about 60 years, were

that they were passed through

generations in his family.

They go way back to a couple

of great-grandfathers, who used

them for rabbit shooting.”

He believes the family emigrated

to New Zealand from England

and Scotland in 1860.

He said the guns were regularly

used by past family members for

“leisurely pursuits” but he has not

BY THE NUMBERS

National statistics of the

buy-back scheme show

as at November 24:

• 40,731 firearms have

been collected, 37,336

through buy-back and

3395 through amnesty.

• 1421 firearms have been

modified to be made

legal under the new laws

• 149,919 firearms parts

have been collected 146,

457 through buy-back

and 3462 through amnesty.

• So far, $75,102,531 has

been paid out.

• A further $2,913,421 is yet

to be paid.

fired either of them himself.

Mr Cockburn didn’t receive

any money for the guns but returned

them in “goodwill.”

“I returned them in the hope

that others will do the same,” he

said.

Acting Senior Sergeant Keith

said overall, Canterbury has seen

very high numbers during the

buy-back, in comparison to other

areas in the country.

He said there were no instances

of people behaving disorderly

or aggressive at events and no

firearms were accidentally discharged

during handover.

“Some firearms have been

identified at our clearing and

safety stations that have had

rounds lodged in tube magazines,

also a shotgun was located with

rounds in the magazine. Both of

the owners of these firearms were

unaware the guns were loaded.

“An air gun was handed into

a police station under amnesty

with pellets jammed inside it

when this item was being cleared

(into a safe direction) a pellet

discharged.”

The busiest time of the buyback

is expected to start this

month.

But Acting Senior Sergeant

Keith’s recommends firearms

owners don’t leave it until the

last minute, otherwise the may

be required to wait in hour-long

queues on December 20.

“If you come in on the last day

we may be unable to pay you

before Christmas. We are urging

people to be proactive and get into

our centre at 545 Wairakei Rd.’’

Not handing in prohibited

items could result in prosecution,

loss of the firearm-without

compensation and, loss of their

firearms licence.

YOUNG, SUCCESSFUL

& on the move

International

dream achieved

at early age

MONET SCHUTTE has achieved

her dream at 13-years-old.

From a very young age, Monet

has had a dream to perform

internationally.

And last week, she received a

standing ovation at the Vienna

Concert Hall in Austria after performing

her original song, Like

You Did Before.

“Singing on stage in Vienna

was a dream come true. I am so

excited that I now have reached

one of my musical goals. It was

the first song I ever wrote, and

it has a very special meaning,”

Monet said.

Written about a friend with

depression, the song won the International

Sounds of Children’s

Rights Songwriting Competition

held in Austria.

She was awarded two prestigious

gold coin awards for her

achievement.

She wrote and recorded the

song with her mentor Sacha Vee

at SOLE Music Academy earlier

this year and decided to enter it

into the competition sponsored

by UNICEF.

Said Monet: “One of my

friends, unfortunately, suffers

from depression and so I wrote

this song about how I tried to

help.”

When Monet received the

news she had made it to the top

10 contestants from around the

world, she only had two months

to prepare for the trip and get

performance-ready.

This was a challenge, since

Monet had to learn piano to accompany

herself.

However, with the guidance

from Vee she put in the time and

is now reaping the reward.

Said Vee: “The best thing about

Monet isn’t her natural musical

ability but her ability to learn,

take on critique and her work

ethic. She is an absolute joy to

teach and guide on her pathway

to having a career in music.”

Monet has been attending

SOLE Music Academy for the

past two years.

SOLE was set up by Vee, an

OUR PEOPLE – NICOLA GRIGG 27

Politics and farming a true blue mix

Nicola Grigg will be

National’s candidate

in next year’s election,

replacing the retiring

Amy Adams. She talks

to Louis Day

HANDS-ON: Nicola Grigg was born and raised on a farm in Mt Somers.

What was your reaction to

being selected as the National

candidate for Selwyn?

I was just thrilled, I really was,

I had so much support from

members around the electorate

and this is just something I have

wanted to do for a long long, long

time. I was probably a little bit

shocked as well as there were two

high calibre candidates there as

well. It was definitely a mixture

of elation and shock.

What is your connection to

the Selwyn electorate?

I was born and raised on a family

farm in Mt Somers. That was

a bit of a technicality, at the time

it was in the Selwyn electorate

but then there was a boundary

change in 2007 so it got pulled

into the Rangitata electorate. But

when you grow up on a farm in

Mid-Canterbury all your family

friends and all your family is all

deeply connected.

Boundaries are boundaries, but

if I look at all the big rural seats

from South Canterbury to North

Canterbury you have got Waitaki

Rangitata, Selwyn, Waimak they

are all really interwoven and my

connection is just growing up

in the region really and being

involved in the farming community.

Tell me about your family’s

history in politics.

Politics has always been of

interest for me because of my

family connections. My great

grandfather Major Arthur Grigg

was the MP for Ashburton in the

early 1940s and he was killed in

the second World War. Then his

wife Mary Grigg stood to replace

him and stood uncontested and

she ended up being National’s

first female MP.

She was very pro-women and

very pro-agriculture. I read some

of her speeches now and it is literally

like history repeating itself.

How did you become a journalist

and what prompted the

transition into politics?

I went to broadcasting school

straight after finishing high

school at St Margaret’s College.

I think the career adviser at the

time steered me in the direction

of journalism because I talked

a lot. So yeah, I became a journalist,

did a bit of travel, came back,

lived in Queenstown, got made

redundant a couple of times during

the global financial crisis and

then I moved home at the end of

2010 to Canterbury. That is when

the quake started and when the

newsrooms were hiring, so I went

to Newstalk ZB.

At the time, because it was a

post-quake environment all the

Government ministers like Key,

English, Brownlee and Amy

Adams were coming here regularly

and I was interfacing with them a

lot as a reporter. I got offered a job

after the 2014 elections in Simon

Bridges’ office after he was made

the Minister of Transport and

Minister of Energy Resources.

I really wasn’t sure because I

loved being a reporter. I went

over to Greymouth and it was the

day Key and Bridges announced

they weren’t going to re-enter the

Pike River Mine.

When Key came down and

announced that they weren’t going

to go back in, it was just the

way they handled it with such

empathy and logic and I thought

actually I do want to get involved

with that team.

So I went up to Wellington

in 2014, worked with Simon for

about four months and then I

got an opportunity to go into

Bill English’s office, I was there

for two years with him as the

Minister of Finance and the year

he was Prime Minister.

When Bill resigned I always had

in the back that I wanted to be

an MP, so in the middle of 2018 I

thought it was time to come home

and get in a position to find a seat

and it was a stroke of luck that my

home seat opened up.

What did you aspire to be as a

child, was it a politician?

I wanted to be a vet. Just because

I grew up on a farm riding

ponies, I loved animals, I wanted

to be a vet but it turned out I was

not very good at science.

Hobbies outside of work?

I love horse riding still to this

day but I don’t get much time,

I also love skiing, but I just run

and hike when I can, never been

to a gym in my life, I just love the

outdoors.

Dead or alive, who would you

want to sit down and have a

drink with?

Elizabeth I. She is my hero. She

was just such a clever politician,

she bought together such a fractious

country by just being really

clever about it.

You know that famous quote,

I will probably get this wrong,

but it is something along the

lines of, I will not make windows

into men’s souls. As in to say she

didn’t care what people actually

thought in the privacy of her own

home as long as they towed her

line I guess and were loyal to her

and she was just such a shrewd

operator in an era when she was

the only woman in the world

doing it.

Where are you based at the

moment?

I am in the city at the moment,

but my family are based in the

electorate so for the duration of

the selection, I was hubbing in

and out of their place. I am house

hunting at the moment. I really

like both West Melton and that

Lincoln, Prebbleton and Tai Tapu

area.

I have committed to the membership

that I will be living there

by the new year. You can add that

to my hobbies, I spend my weekends

going around open homes at

the moment.

OUR PEOPLE

Focus on growing economy

• From page 27

What would you say your

priorities would be if you were

elected as the MP for Selwyn?

First and foremost changing

the Government. But with regards

to Selwyn, I come at it with

a couple of perspectives.

My time working as a press

secretary for Bill English under

the former National Government

I really learnt the importance of

growing the economy. With my

current role with New Zealand

Trade and Enterprise, I deal

with a lot of export businesses

based out of Selwyn, particularly

start-up companies coming out

of Lincoln Agritech and Lincoln

University.

So for me, it is about encouraging

business within the electorate

to grow.

How do you think the Labourled

Government has performed

over this term?

There has been unnecessary

stressors put on new Zealanders

and whether that is through the

gradual slowing down of the

economy or a lack of funding

into essential services that were

promised into healthcare and

particularly mental health. But

the one aspect that makes me

really angry is the treatment of

our agricultural sector and our

farming community.

I’m from a farm. My

community, neighbours,

everybody farms and these are

clever businesspeople. They are

sophisticated and they are very

conscious of their environmental

responsibilities and they are

some of the most productive food

producers in the world.

Yet they are trying to operate

in a regulatory environment that

is actually condemning them and

stopping them from doing what

they are really good at doing.

Are you concerned about the

impact the agricultural industry

is having on the environment?

Historically there have been

mistakes made. There was a massive

land-use change that occurred

here in Canterbury over the last 20

to 30 years during the dairy boom

on soils that have a riverbed and

soils that leached a lot.

Ever since that awareness has

come into people’s minds, farmers

particularly have bent over

backwards. Farmers across New

Zealand spent a billion dollars on

fencing off waterways and riparian

planting. There is a huge amount of

investment going into that research

and development space.

Just out at Lincoln Agritech,

CONNECTED: Nicola Grigg worked as Bill

English’s (left) press secretary during his time

as prime minister.

PASSING

THE TORCH:

Nicola Grigg

(left), with

retiring

Selwyn MP

Amy Adams.

there is all sorts of science going

into planting grasses and plantains

that will stop cattle from

producing methane that will

equally have root bases that are

knitted together to stop nitrate

leaching.

Do you think you have big

shoes to fill if you step into Amy

Adam’s role?

Very big shoes. During the

selection period, I would say to

the members what do you want

in your next MP, they would say:

“We just want another Amy.”

Do you think Simon Bridges is

the right person to lead National

into next year’s election?

Yes, 100 per cent. I think

Simon is absolutely on fire at

the moment. With the likes of

the policy on law and order and

the stance, and how National is

taking on gangs, he has really

found his feet actually and he is

resonating really well with New

Zealanders.

ACTIVE: Nicola Grigg skiing at Mt Hutt.

IT’S STARTING to look a bit

like Christmas

It was a busy weekend at our

place over the weekend, ushering

in Christmas month.

This time of year is also the

start of kids’ birthday season for

us, thanks to Vittoria being a

January baby.

Our first was on Saturday and

Vittoria was her typical vivacious

self, running about and

munching on birthday treats.

She even managed to borrow

another friend’s wooden bike as

we were leaving – I mean convincing

a toddler to give up a toy

when you have your arms full is

a tall order.

Later that night, Vittoria’s

godfather Codey arrived from

Australia for a lightning fast

whānau visit and stayed with us

for the night.

Vittoria was fast asleep by the

time he arrived so I waited until

later in the morning to take

her into the room and see him/

shock him awake in petty retaliation

for not doing the dishes

when we were flatmates.

I had thought finding a grown

man asleep in her room might

have surprised her at least a

OPINION

BOYS WILL be boys.

It’s simply part of the DNA.

As kids, we will do things like jumping

off the garage roof to test who has more

courage, sometimes to our detriment; try

and climb to the highest point on a tree,

and then realise how stupid it was and

how perilous it will be getting back down.

As we get older our perspective changes.

But there is still a lot of the boy in there;

the risk-taker and the hi-jinks, usually

fuelled by a little bit too much to drink.

For high profile sportsmen it can become

an Achilles heel, particularly when

will turn those sportsmen into instant

news – and the villan.

On Saturday afternoon I was at my

local, a country pub outside of Christchurch.

A bus turned up. The faces looked

familiar; their attire (fancy dress) different

to what you normally see them in during

the rugby season – Crusaders.

They were not there to storm the building,

pillage and run amok.

They were there to have fun. It was one

of the player’s stag party, a pub crawl one

mentioned in passing. Good on them.

They were left to their own fun as others

in the bar were having as well.

By the time I departed they were still

having a great time, mingling with the

odd patron or two. Everyone was happy.

Just boys being boys, and no sign of any

social media stuff since.

But it isn’t always that way.

Years ago, before cellphones and social

media, I was travelling with the Kiwi

rugby league team on their tour of Australia

and Papua New Guinea.

Myself and a couple of the players were

having a beer in a New South Wales

country town. A very drunken local began

abusing us,

calling us

sheep shaggers

with

expletives

thrown in. He

was warned

a number of

times to stop.

He didn’t.

He hit the

deck; not

hard enough

to cause any

damage but

enough to

show he had

finally overstepped

the

mark.

The player

concerned

was taken

outside by his

teammates.

HEADLINES: Keith

Murdoch his way

home from Wales in

1972.

I stayed to see what developments there

might be. The barman told the guy he was

a proverbial you know what and the police

wouldn’t be called, as he had asked.

I went outside. The player asked if he was

destined to make the news. That may have

led him to be recalled home from the tour

which would have been a travesty given the

provocation we had endured by a boozefuelled

idiot. I said he was in the clear.

If only All Blacks management had the

same commonsense when they sent Keith

Murdoch home from Wales in 1972.

MOTORING

THE SUZUKI

BALENO

BY ROSS KIDDIE

I’ve only been to India once, but once was enough

to gauge the organisational skills that country

needs to manage such a huge population.

It’s that prowess that has filtered down to

automotive manufacturing, Jaguar and Land-

Rover are operated under Indian ownership

and the Suzuki Motor Corporation is one of

several manufacturers that have seen the value

in manufacturing cars using Indian labour and

technology.

One model that comes off the Manesar

manufacturing plant is Baleno, a mid-size

hatchback that has been sold in New Zealand in its

latest iteration since 2017.

The Baleno lands here in two variations, effectively

there are two engine options, there’s a fourcylinder

1.4-litre naturally-aspirated engine and

a turbocharged 1-litre three-cylinder unit. Both

variants – GLX and RS - have just had a mid-cycle

makeover.

The changes are only minor and mostly cosmetic,

there’s a new grille and front bumper, new seat

upholstery and minor trim changes. Suzuki also

claims ride comfort enhancements and lower noise

levels.

The evaluation car was the RS variant, it also gets

new wheels and LED headlamps. The RS is priced

at $25,990 which makes wallet-friendly buying,

but if you really want a Baleno and that was just a

touch out of reach, the GLX variant sits at $21,990

($23,990 auto).

For my money I’d be an RS buyer, not only are the

power outputs higher – 82kW and 160Nm against

68kW and 130Nm – but I’ve got a penchant for

three-cylinder engines. I once had a Star Media

pool car for personal use and it was an Alto, the car

that essentially kicked off Suzuki’s three-pot engine

programme.

However, today’s engine is a far different

proposition, it’s a lot smoother than ever before,

and the harmonics which characterise the layout

are all but engineered out of the vehicle.

One of the reasons I like the configuration is

the hearty torque structure, and if you add in

turbocharged boost there is decisive throttle

response from all points in the rev band. A lot

of that is to do with the area at which torque

is delivered, all of the way from 1500rpm to

4000rpm, and it stops not that far distant from the

point of peak power at 5000rpm. All those figures

considered, there is a feisty feel underfoot, and with

the Baleno weighing in light at just one tonne, the

power-to-weight ratio is substantial.

Drive is channelled to the front wheels through a

six-speed automatic transmission, and it is a beauty

with quick, smooth shifts. For those who like to be

involved in the gearchange process, steering wheelmounted

paddle shifts provide a little bit more of

that sporty feel.

While the Baleno RS excites with its underbonnet

performance, it is still the fuel miser you

would expect from Suzuki. It claims a 5.2-litre per

Price – Suzuki Baleno RS, $25,990

Dimensions – Length, 3995mm; width, 1745mm;

height, 1470mm

Configuration – Three-cylinder, front-wheel-drive,

998cc, 82kW, 160Nm, six-speed automatic

Performance – 0-100km/h, 10.5sec

Fuel usage – 5.2l/100km

100km (53mpg) combined cycle average. During

my time with the test car the fuel usage readout

constantly listed around 6l/100km (47mpg), while

an instantaneous figure of 4l/100km (70mpg) is

achievable on a highway cruise with the engine

turning over at just 1950rpm at 100km/h.

At all speeds the Baleno is comfortable and feels

controlled. Steerage is informative while body

balance in a corner is controlled. The suspension

is relatively simplistic, but it does contain the ruts

and bumps well and equips itself when loaded if a

corner is presented a bit on the quick side.

There’s been a lot of talk lately about vehicle safety,

and I’m pleased to report that the Baleno has a fivestar

Australasian New Car Assessment Program

rating.

The Baleno also gets a high level of kit for

convenience. There’s satellite navigation, cruise

control and speed limiter, keyless entry and

ignition. Many of the control systems can be

navigated through a central screen display, it also

functions as rear view camera and will allow smart

phone capability through Apple Car Play and

Android Auto.

The Baleno is just one car in a raft of fuel-friendly,

affordable cars from the brand. Many Living

Life readers will be Suzuki owners, and for those

thinking of trading up, choosing between the two

Baleno models may be a difficult choice, but either

would be a rewarding experience once behind the

wheel.

REDUCE DEATHS

FROM BREAST

CANCER

More than 600 women die from breast cancer

each year in New Zealand. With an AI augmented

screening programme, many of these deaths might

be preventable according to the AI Forum of New

Zealand’s latest research report.

By 2021, the cost of cancer care is predicted to rise

by 20 percent. Once proven, such an approach

to screening could then be generalized to other

cancers, the AI Forum’s executive director Emma

Naji says.

AI can be used to predict breast cancer, potentially

five years in advance, diagnose it from medical

images with comparable ability to radiologists,

and decrease the error rate of pathologists by 85

percent, Naji says.

“Early detection of breast cancer dramatically

improves the outcome for the patient. In New

Zealand, improved screening for breast cancer

over the past 20 years has reduced deaths from the

disease by 27 percent.

“If AI can further augment and improve breast

cancer screening by even 10 percent this would

result in saving 60 women’s lives each year and

reduce the cost to the taxpayer by $12.6 million a

year.”

The need for early diagnosis underpins breast

cancer screening. AI driven predictive analytics

could mean that screening in New Zealand is

offered according to risk and sparing those at very

low risk from false positive results and unnecessary

interventions.

The report says 12 percent of women will develop

breast cancer in their lifetime, but this does not

mean that each woman has a 12 percent risk.

New Zealand has an opportunity to link and

leverage our comprehensive health datasets and use

this big data to train intelligent predictive models

for breast cancer, Naji says.

“Combining local and national datasets such as

primary health records, electronic health records,

the cancer registry, mortality collections and

adding new datasets over time such as a biobank,

could yield a national-level predictive model

for breast cancer risk, able to provide far more

granular and relevant predictions for high disease

risk.

“This model could be used by GPs and DHB

oncology services to enable intensive monitoring

and prevention or pre-emptive treatment of

women at high risk for breast cancer.

“It could also reduce the screening frequency of

those with vanishingly low probability of cancer,

thereby minimising discomfort, anxiety around

false positive results and freeing up resources.

“Such a solution relies on AI foundations such

as skilled AI talent with domain knowledge and

expertise building predictive models in health and

medicine

“It also leans on applying AI to disease predictions

and ensuring that data, algorithms and models

employed are thoroughly evaluated and reviewed

against ethical principles.”

Ching Wang has spent her professional

career in traditional Chinese holistic

healthcare and is a health advocate who

treats her patients with Chinese herbal

medicines, acupuncture and other noninvasive

therapies.

We spoke with Ching about her healthcare

philosophies and her love of helping people

be healthy and enjoy wellbeing.

What is the favourite part of your work?

I am fascinated by the amazing human

body and how it can heal, rebalance and

realign itself. Unlike in Western therapies,

I treat the mind and body as essentially

combined. A person in good health is

also in good mental health. An illness or

imbalance will create both mental AND

physical symptoms.

Using traditional Chinese medicine, I can

help people understand what illnesses they

might be experiencing and guide them on

the path to regain their health.

What training do you have?

In China, I started my training in both

western and traditional Chinese medicines.

I later specialised in Chinese therapies

which focuses on herbal treatments,

acupuncture, acupressure, moxibustion

(the burning of herbs over acupuncture

points) and “cupping” of the skin to draw

out illnesses.

I earned my bachelor’s degree after training

full time for five years and after graduating,

I was a consulting physician and senior

lecturer at The First Military Medical

University in China.

My husband founded our first acupuncture

clinic, AcuCentre in Christchurch in 1997

and then two years late I moved to New

Zealand with our young son and joined

him. We then expanded to have clinics in

Riccarton, Linwood and Ashburton.

Fifteen years ago, my husband and I also

started MuZu Traditional Chinese Health

Spa, offering full-body massages, herbal

foot spas and reflexology, in addition to

acupuncture treatments. These therapies

promote the understanding of our

bodies’ relationship to nature and are

the foundation of all traditional Chinese

healing.

I have more than 30 years of clinical

experience and I love helping people

balance their “Qi” (the life force energy

that flows between acupuncture points

via meridians) to regain or maintain their

health.

New Zealand’s district health boards

are facing a $500 million annual deficit

but artificial intelligence (AI) could

annually contribute more than $700

million of value and savings to the

New Zealand health system by 2026.

The AI Forum of New Zealand

launches their latest AI research

report, AI for Health in New Zealand

/ Hauora i te Atamai Iahiko, in

Auckland later today which provides

fresh information relating to AI and

health for Kiwis.

Executive director Ben Reid says AI’s

contribution to the NZ health system

could rise to between $1.6 to $3.6

billion by 2035.

The health sector in New Zealand

is facing challenges. These include

increasing demand, rising consumer

expectations, and the pressures of

an ageing population. These factors

are straining the health workforce,

increasing costs and limiting access to

care.

“AI promises to bring significant

clinical, workforce and cost benefits

to the health sector, as well as

personalise medical care. It can help

with predicting disease and injury; and

mine vast quantities of literature for

research insights.

“It can also assist in novel drug

discovery; augment the work of human

specialists through image analysis and

robotic surgery; automate hospital

processes; free up more time for

doctor-patient interaction and provide

personalised treatment.

The good news is that hospitals and

district health boards (DHBs) are

investing in data infrastructure in

advance of AI. The Waitematā DHB’s

leapfrog programme is capturing more

clinical data digitally and enabling

better data visualisation.

Dr Kevin Ross, chief executive of

research partner Precision Driven

Health, says there are a few AI

solutions used in New Zealand but not

many.

“AI will increasingly outperform

humans in translating the

unmanageable volume and variety

of data and research into practical

advice for both our clinical carers and

citizens,” Ross says.

“New Zealand is well positioned

to lead this transformation. With

high quality digital health records,

innovative Kiwi companies, an

admired health system and maturing

data governance and ethics required to

develop this capability.”

“Recent AI research by Precision

Driven Health includes an automated

triage system for cardiology referrals

which can predict who should be seen

first which will save clinician time and

help to overcome bias.”

Reid says there are a number of

barriers that need to be overcome to

enable widespread adoption of AI

in New Zealand healthcare such as a

low level of digital literacy among the

healthcare workforce and inflexibility

of legacy technological systems.

There is insufficient awareness of

where and how AI is being applied

in the sector. There is a need to

slowly introduce clinical staff to new

workflows to avoid resistance and

there are low levels of AI awareness

among health professionals.

New Zealand also has a number

of self-imposed barriers including

restricted access to non-identifiable

data, a lack of standardisation, and

little cloud data storage, he says.

“Developers of AI in health will need

to understand the current conservative

nature of the healthcare sector.

“AI will only reach its potential with

accessible, secure, interoperable cloudbased

health data and social license

for its use. Solving this problem will

unleash the power of data in electronic

health records for research and

development.

“Disruptive AI technologies such as

mobile chatbot interfaces will change

the way we access healthcare. PHOs

are currently funded on a per patient

enrolled basis, not a per service

delivered basis.

“Meanwhile large technology

companies are starting to experiment

internationally with health as a service

business model.”

10,000 KIWIS

DIAGNOSED WITH

PARKINSON’S

MUST GET MORE

ACTIVE

Exercise NZ says many of the 10,000 New

Zealanders who are diagnosed with Parkinson’s

need to get more active.

Richard Beddie, chief executive of Exercise NZ,

says one in every 500 Kiwis suffers from

Parkinson’s and regular activity

will help them. Parkinson’s New

Zealand starts its annual

awareness week tomorrow.

Parkinson’s is the

second most common

neurological condition in

New Zealand and Beddie

says Exercise NZ has

supported the training

of exercise professionals

to better understand the

condition.

Richard

Beedie

“Also as a partner of

Exercise As Medicine NZ, we

have helped train many exercise

professionals to help those with chronic

health conditions, including Parkinsons,” Beddie

says.

The health benefits of exercise have long been

extolled. Heart disease treatment and prevention,

Experience comfort, stability and ease. Two sizes. Only 4.8kgs.

cancer, and mental health are amongst the most

commonly known areas to benefit from regular

physical activity.

“Exercise can be cheap, relatively safe and free of

side effects. It is increasingly being used to

help manage other health conditions

like Parkinson’s disease.

“Studies consistently reveal

that people with Parkinson’s

can improve in the

following their strength,

endurance, balance,

mobility, walking ability

and flexibility. Research

has shown that people

who exercise are less likely

to develop Parkinson’s.

Everyone with Parkinson’s

should exercise, according to

the Michael J Fox Foundation.

Fox, the actor, launched the

foundation in 2000 after publicly

disclosing his 1991 diagnosis, at aged 29, with

Parkinson’s disease.

The days of hospital specialists

spending more time treating patients

and less time processing referrals may

soon be over.

The AI Forum of New Zealand’s recent

health research report says tens of

millions of dollars are being spent to

come up with an artificial intelligence

system to speed up processes in

hospitals.

Triaging cardiologist referrals from

GPs managing patient referrals has

traditionally been a paper-based

process.

The time-consuming manual process

requires prioritising referrals according

to urgency levels and protocol.

Auckland company Precision Driven

Health (PDH) is PDH is investing $38

million over seven years to personalise

healthcare by running machine

learning on data.PDH is a research

partnership between Orion Health, the

University of Auckland and Waitemata

District Health Board.

The AI forum’s report says the

Waitemata DHB identified

cardiologists were spending too

high a proportion of their time

triaging patient referrals and

reviewing paperwork. Unsurprisingly,

cardiologists would prefer to spend

more time treating patients and less

time processing referrals.

AI forum executive director Emma

Naji says PDH aims to use transfer

learning to reduce the time taken for

hospital cardiologists to prioritise

patient referrals from general

practitioners. Naji has taken over

from Ben Reid at the AI Forum of

New Zealand. She has had a 20-year

entrepreneurial career including digital

voice and recognition, drones and AI.

She co-founded one of the earliest

UK commercial drone companies and

founded AI Advisory in NZ.

“Reducing the triage time allows

cardiologists to spend more time with

patients, reduce patient waiting time

and improving delivery of the right

treatment and care.

“Dr Edmond Zhang, a data scientist

at PDH, is using different machine

learning models on different data

types, including images, scans, textbased

data, and structured data such as

laboratory test results.

These outputs are combined into

a unified model to triage patients.

PDH will use 14,000 existing WDHB

cardiology triage records to create

the base machine learning model for

this project.“To complete the transfer

learning aspect of the project, this

base model will then be fine-tuned

for other contexts. As at June 2019,

PDH was midway through base model

production and a functional triaging

model for cardiologists should be

ready later this year. Ultimately, PDH

will develop the research outputs into a

commercial platform.

“Orion Health’s smart data platform

will enable clinicians to use these tools

to support their decision making. PDH

needed to gain data ethics approval as

well as anonymising free text data.

The benefits of using an AI platform

include time and cost savings;

combining multiple data sets means

better insights; and transferring a base

model to different specialisations and

hospitals.”


PPPR

APPLICATIONS

Being able to make decisions about our

lives for ourselves is an important part

of maintaining independence as we age.

Our ability to understand and make

informed decisions is called mental

capacity. Sometimes, through illness or

accident, we can lose mental capacity. If

that happens, you might want a family

member or trusted loved one to step

in and make sure that you and your

belongings are being looked after the

way you want. One way to do this is

through enduring powers of attorney.

EXERCISE THE MIND

SUDOKU - EASY

These are legal documents that grant the

person of your choosing the ability to

help you make decisions if you can no

longer make them independently.

What happens if you lose mental

capacity and you don’t have enduring

powers of attorney in place? The

Family Court has the ability to appoint

someone to act on your behalf under

the Protection of Personal and Property

Rights Act 1988 (“PPPR”). The Court

can appoint someone to look after your

SUDOKU - MEDIUM

QUICK CROSSWORD SOLUTIONS ON PAGE 10

assets, such as your bank accounts and your home, as well

as someone to look after your personal welfare, for example

consenting to medical treatment on your behalf or deciding

where you will live. Often, one person will be appointed

in both roles, but it is possible to have a different person

appointed to each.

Only certain people can apply to Court to be appointed under

the Act, and this includes family members, doctors, social

workers, and some welfare groups. Other people may be able

to apply, but they need special permission from the Court

first. If you want someone else to act on your behalf, such as a

trusted friend, an enduring power of attorney is the best way

to make that happen.

Once an application has been made, the Court will appoint a

lawyer to represent you. It’s their job to discuss the application

with you and to advise the Court of any thoughts you have

about the application.

If the Court thinks it’s necessary and in your best interests,

it will likely grant the application. It’s important to know

that when the Court appoints someone under the Act that

appointment only lasts for three years. This is different from

an enduring power of attorney, which, once it comes into

force, will last until either you regain mental capacity and

choose to revoke it, or upon your death. Once the three years

is over, a new Court application has to be made, which can be

expensive and stressful for the people involved.

Putting enduring powers of attorney in place early is the most

effective way to ensure that you are being cared for the way

that you want and by the people you want. At Harmans we

have a specialist seniors law team with the experience to help

you arrange your affairs. Please call Phillipa Shaw on 03 352

2293 to arrange an appointment to discuss your situation.

WAYS

TO HELP

SCIATICA

8

LIVING

LIFE

EXERCICES

Research shows that sciatica causes your

body to produce lower levels of serotonin

(your “happy” hormone). So even moderate

back pain will drain your good hormones,

kill your mood and STOP you from doing the

things you love... like exercising or spending

time with your family.

What is the sciatic nerve?

Sciatic nerve pain can be so excruciating and

debilitating that you don’t even want to get

off the couch. Common causes of sciatica

can include a ruptured disk, a narrowing of

the spine canal (called spinal stenosis), and

injury. Often, the most problematic body

parts are the lower back and hips.

Most cases of acute sciatica respond well to

self-care measures, which include: Overthe-counter

painkillers, exercises such as

walking or light stretching and hot or cold

compression packs to help reduce pain.

Doctors recommend a helpful way to

alleviate most sciatica pain is to do any

stretch which can externally rotate the hip.

FUNDRAISING

SIMON O’NEILL

IN CONCERT

WITH WOOLSTON BRASS

Proudly sponsored by John Rhind,

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 Concert Brass.

Simon O’Neill is proudly donating his

voice to help Woolston Brass raise funds

for the new band hall. The fundraising

concerts being held Friday 8 November at

the Christchurch James Hay Theatre and

Sunday 10 November at the Ashburton

Trust Event Centre will feature tenor classics

such as traditional Irish ballad Danny Boy

(Londonderry Air), Caruso written by Italian

composer Dalla, the famous Swedish Folk

Song (How Great Thou Art) and the iconic

aria Largo Al Factotum from Rossini’s opera

The Barber of Seville. Woolston Brass will

also perform contemporary brass band works

such as Tom Davoren’s Phoenix Rising and

the movement Phoenix from Peter Graham’s

War of the Worlds Suite, both of these works

emulate the rise of a Phoenix from the ashes

of destruction.

“I’m excited to perform with the

distinguished Woolston Brass in November.

I’ve always admired their musical excellence

and reputation and am honoured to be part

of their fundraising campaign to secure their

future home” said Simon O’Neill.

Concert tickets are available for purchase

from Ticketek (Christchurch Concert) and

TicketDirect (Ashburton Concert).

New digital skills

help Wanda

return to work

OPINION

Moving expenses

and bus lanes

Keen to re-enter the workforce after raising

a family, Wanda Price realised she needed to

brush up on her computer skills first.

“I had large gaps in my computer knowledge,

so I knew that I needed to fix this before I

could confidently apply for jobs,” she says.

And fix it she is. Wanda’s currently studying

the New Zealand Certificate in Computing at

her local Ara Connect. Run by Ara Institute

of Canterbury, Ara Connect offers free

computing courses for anyone wanting to gain

skills and confidence using digital technology.

“I chose Ara Connect

because it had the course

I wanted, it was free and it

was easy to get to. And the

‘pick and mix’ timetable

really suits me with a

family. The course is selfpaced,

so you’re only

focusing on what you’re

doing.”

Wanda says she’s

enjoying the course, and

likes her tutor’s teaching

style. “She has the ability

to point you in the right

direction so you can

then solve the problem

yourself. And approaching a tutor at any time

is never a problem – they’re only too happy to

help.”

Wanda encourages others to become a

digital upskiller like her. “Definitely give it a

go! You’ll be amazed at all that you learn and

you’ll enjoy doing it.”

When she completes her certificate, she’s

going to weigh up whether to apply for jobs or

do further study.

city council chief

executive Dawn

Baxendale’s refusal

to say how she spent

her ratepayer funded

$30,000 moving

expenses from

England

(www.odt.co.nz/

star-news/starchristchurch/opiniontell-us-how-30k-wasspent)

Bill Cornelius -

Roll up, roll up, for the

Christchurch City Circus.

New acts added daily. As

there are no blocks in place

for openness and transparency

ratepayers must not

expect to obtain admission

to the ‘Big Top” where all

the main acts take place.

Dan Simpson -

I relocated from Australia

two years ago with my

family. The cost was over

$20,000 with all my accumulated

belongings.The

dog was $4000 by itself.

It was worth it as everything

is double the price

in New Zealand and I had

family to stay with us before

purchasing a house.

If that’s what was negotiated

to get someone that

they think can do the job

than money well spent..

Thirty thousand is probably

a bargain from the

UK. I’m sure they didn’t

put her in a youth hostel

till she found a house to

buy. Get your head out of

the sand and let her get on

with the job.

Trevor Sennitt -

While not an apologist for

the local council and their

secret ways I do not understand

your concern re the

$30k relocation money. It

was part of the contract to

allow this money to assist

relocation. How the family

spent it seems immaterial.

J Williams -

I really do believe you have

no business in inquiries

around how the new

council CEO spent the

$30,000 moving expenses.

She was given that sum

to spend on shipping her

household to Christchurch

from England and I’m sure

it will take that and more

to do so.

Why should we be interested

if that included a case

of wine, a refrigerator, a

double bed or a chilly bin?

She was allocated $30,000

and that should be it.

Readers react to

The Star article on

bus lane fines on

Riccarton Rd

(www.odt.co.nz/

star-news/starchristchurch/369kfines-crossing-buslane)

Jenny Thomson -

I was also fined for entering

the Deans Ave bus lane

too soon on Riccarton Rd.

I had no idea this was an

offence.

This occurred on a very

quiet Tuesday afternoon

. The bus lane was totally

deserted, not a bus in sight

and no sign to say I could

not enter the lane.

I was very shocked to be

fined $150.00 but what a

great little earner.

I requested video footage

of my transgression. The

video showed my car and

two other vehicles entering

the bus lane all in the space

of seven seconds.

So in seven seconds the

council made $450.00.

Why would they want to

put up a warning sign?

Maybe they want the

money for more cycleways.

Grant Wells -

The modern-day mafia.

Judith Callanan -

Don’t drive in bus lane and

you won’t get fined. Stop

whinging and learn road

rules.

Neil Langdon -

It’s been a known fact

since the existence of bus

lanes. How is this chump

been able to be a driving

instructor?

James Boswell -

Ignorance isn’t a defence.

Scotty Wilson -

Revenue raising.

Alistair Price -

I have just been to Brisbane.

I was surprised at

the lack of bus lanes where

we travelled in and around

Brisbane.

The policy in Brisbane is

you must let the bus go first

or get fined. We travelled

in peak hour traffic and the

traffic flow was a lot better

than what we suffer in

Christchurch.

There are a lot more

buses in Brisbane. They are

everywhere. Did our city

traffic planners get it wrong

with bus lanes? Maybe

create a law to let the buses

go first, forget the bus lanes

and save the city council a

heap of money.

Sorry forgot the bus

lane offences are a revenue

stream for the city council.

more with Kati Mamoe

than Ngai Tahu, though we

are one these days.

Kati Mamoe were not

just a small tribal group,

they were a tribe and still

are really. What is known

today as Ngai Tahu is

actually an amalgamation

of Ngai Tahu and Kati

Mamoe, after a pact along

with intermarriage with

the earlier people of the

Waitaha grouping which

was the ancient iwi of Waitaha,

Rapuwai and Hawea.

I know the government is

trying to erase these other

Iwi from history. It would

be nice if the media didn’t

follow suit.

Hilary Anderson -

I am strongly opposed

to the name changes

proposed across Banks

Peninsula, or anywhere

else for that matter. Existing

names are known to

everyone and changes

would create confusion and

disarray to all of us, including

businesses, the postal

service and government

departments. Please leave

them as they are.

Lynne Clark -

When the Treaty of Waitangi

was signed, there were

two parties. The Maori and

the European. I belong to

the latter. I am totally fed

up with changing names.

I don’t mind new places

or buildings given either

Maori or European names,

but am totally against current

names being changed.

I think it’s unnecessary, it’s

rude, and offensive towards

European. Please stop appeasing

loud Maori voices,

and let’s just settle with

what’s current.

Murray Stuart -

No, and again no. Is it not

enough that the Christchurch

Library and just about

everything else new these

days has a Maori name?

Wal Remu -

These names changes are a

load of rubbish - made up

Maori names. Leave them

well alone! The money

could be far better spent

on housing for the homeless,

better public facilities

in many Christchurch

suburbs, and so on. Nothing

wrong with the likes of

Dyers Pass Rd, Sign of the

Kiwi, etc.

Reader Sally-Ann

Marshall responds to

the October 20 article

about crime in Cass

Bay, which residents

say is on the rise

I have to say that as a

Heathcote resident it’s not

confined to Cass Bay.

The boy racers around

here are a daily annoyance.

In the year I’ve lived here

we’ve had a tree trunk

smashed through our car

window, the lamp post

outside our house has been

crashed into and knocked

into our garden in the dead

of night, the letterbox (and

that of many neighbours)

has been obliterated. This is

before we get onto the tagging,

speeding and vandalism

of the domain. There is

also loud music, drinking,

weed smoking and public

toilets smashed to pieces.

For the police

spokesperson to say there’s

no increase is just naive. If

I was to call them for every

incident that occurred I’d

be on the phone to them

most days. I’ve informed

the city council about the

acts of vandalism, as they

and we ratepayers are

unfortunately the ones that

pay to fix it.

Collagen is the bodies youth protein.

It is the primary protein in the body and

is a major component of skin, hair, nails,

bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, teeth,

eyes, blood vessels and joint cartilage.

In fact collagen is the primary structural

component for all tissue in the body,

providing the strength and resilience

associated with youth, beauty and

wellness.

The body’s natural collagen production

decreases with age resulting in many signs

of aging, such as flaccid skin, wrinkles,

ligament and tendon injuries, and aching

joints. Blood vessels can become less

flexible causing blood pressure to increase

and the stomach and intestines more

permeable allowing partly digested food

and toxins to enter the blood stream.

Collagen supplementation is one of the

most fundamental things a person can

do to support a healthy body, prevent

premature aging as well as promoting

youthful vitality.

NEOCELL are the industry leaders in

research on collagen supplementation.

They have perfected a way to hydrolyse

collagen and reduce its molecular

weight improving its absorption

OPINION

The coming week in our history

December 5, 1890 – New

Zealand’s electoral law had been

changed so that no one could

vote in more than one general

electoral district. This ended the

long-standing practice of ‘plural

voting’ by those who owned

property in more than one

electorate.

December 6, 1905 – For

the first time in New Zealand’s

electoral history, registered voters

who were away from their

electorate on polling day were

able to cast a ‘special’ absentee

vote at any polling booth in the

country.

December 7, 1984 – ‘Tears,

terror at the concert that made

history’ was one of the newspaper

headlines the day after the

Queen St riot of December 1984.

Shortly after headlining

act DD Smash took the stage,

the power went off. As the

10,000-strong audience waited

impatiently, a drunken man

urinated on the crowd from

above; when police attempted to

arrest him, some of the audience

started throwing bottles. There

were a few arrests, and more

police arrived, outfitted in riot

gear. Dave Dobbyn, DD Smash’s

lead singer, allegedly told the

crowd: “I wish those riot squad

guys would stop wanking and

put their little batons away.’’

When the promoters announced

that the concert was

being called off, parts of the audience

rioted. They poured onto

Queen St, smashed windows and

upturned cars.

December 8, 1932 – The

first issue of the New Zealand

Woman’s Weekly was distributed

during the Depression. The

magazine contained advice

on cooking and housework,

romantic short stories, knitting

patterns and feature articles.

December 9, 1867 – After

6½ years of construction, it took

just 6½ minutes for the first

trainload of passengers to speed

through the 2.6km tunnel linking

the Canterbury plains to the

port of Lyttelton.

December 10, 1908 –

Ernest Rutherford’s discoveries

about the nature of atoms

shaped modern science and

paved the way for nuclear physics.

Albert Einstein called him

a ‘second Newton’ who had

‘tunnelled into the very material

of God’

December 11, 1907 – The

country narrowly avoided a great

library bonfire in 1907, when

fire swept through Parliament

Buildings in Wellington.

Caught between a

rock and a hard place

THE CITY council’s new chief

executive, Dawn Baxendale, has

hit the ground running setting

strong expectations in terms of

transparency and accountability

right from the start.

In tabling the report in Parliament,

the Chief Ombudsman said

this: “I’m confident that the new

chief executive and leadership

team is serious about ensuring the

behaviours identified during this

investigation will not be tolerated

at Christchurch City Council”.

He acknowledged that the city

council’s improvement plan had

accepted every recommendation,

which is why Dawn welcomed the

report.

It has been interesting to

observe the commentary about

Dawn’s moving expenses, which

are explicitly covered by her

contract of employment and are

capped.

Instead of the tabloid approach

of ‘did we pay for your dog?’, how

much did the airfares cost? And

how did you travel? I can only

speculate why the city council

wasn’t simply asked what expenses

are covered in the employment

contract for relocating the

new chief executive’s household

to New Zealand from the United

Kingdom.

Dawn Baxendale

Here’s the answer:

“Costs that may be claimed

can include removal of effects,

airfares, surface travel and storage

of personal effects for up to eight

weeks . . . you may also use the

relocation contribution towards

temporary accommodation costs,

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

city orientation, home search and

settling-in services such as banking,

medical, and transport.”

There is a one-off cost in

employing someone who has an

established life on the other side

of the world. The city council is

contributing $30,000 to that cost.

We have been fully transparent

about that right from the outset.

The costs of moving her household

effects alone will take Dawn

well over the cap, so every cent

she has claimed for airfares or

claims for temporary accommodation

in the meantime, increases

the final cost of the shift, not to

us, but to her.

It’s a big decision to move to the

other side of the world and we are

lucky Dawn agreed to do so.

The Star did ask questions

of the city council about

the Baxendale relocation

expenses. Her office

declined to release details.

Children’s tale will appeal to all ages

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

A HIGH-PROFILE cast of

performers have been brought in

to re-tell the magical children’s

tale of The Wind in the Willows.

Playing the complex, starring

role of Toad is Cameron Rhodes

in The Court Theatre’s summer

season of the production.

While he claims he has never

had a “big

break” in his

more than

30-year career,

Rhodes has

appeared in

major films

Cameron

Rhodes

associated to

New Zealand

including

The Lord of

The Rings and The Chronicles of

Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and

the Wardrobe ​.

But while Rhodes, 52, said he

loves film, “there is something

about theatre you can’t compare

it to.”

“A play like this (The Wind

in the Willows) you can do on

screen but it wouldn’t be the

same,” he said.

Published as a children’s

novel in 1908 by Scottish novelist

Kenneth Grahame, the story,

adapted by Alan Bennett, focuses

on four anthropomorphised

animals including Toad.

The show tells the tale of Toad

destroying the serenity of the

English countryside with a motor

vehicle.

His obsession with racing

expensive cars puts the future of

his and his friend’s home in peril

when it leads to wicked weasels

taking over.

“He is privileged and charismatic

but he is a bit like a child

who hasn’t had any boundaries

put on him . . . I can be like

that. It is possible when I was a

bit younger I liked to party for

days. Obviously you can’t sustain

that,” Rhodes said.

A Toi Whakaari: New Zealand

Drama School graduate, he said

The Wind in the Willows

although the story is a children’s

tale there are important themes

– particularly on protecting the

environment and the power of

friendship.

“It has got a real company feel

. . . I haven’t been in a cast this

big I don’t think for years. It is

huge, the set and costumes. I

have not been to a set like this, it

has got three revolving stages. It

is spectacular.”

It is not the first time Rhodes

has performed with The Court

Theatre. In 2017 he played a key

role in comedy-thriller Ropable.

Growing up, it didn’t take

long for Rhodes to work out he

wanted to do performing full

time.

“My mother got me into

speech and drama for confidence

I think and I just really liked it

. . . I just knew at about 14 or 15

this is what I want to do forever.”

Rhodes said the reality of acting

is job security is “zero” but

there is the opportunity to work

in many different jobs if a person

enjoys variety

In March, he will perform in

Black Lover in Auckland which

depicts the life of Sir Garfield

Todd who was Prime Minister of

Rhodesia from 1953 to 1958.

From there he will travel back

to Los Angeles to try his luck.

“It is the old question people

ask, should I do it? And it is not

should you, you have to do it,

you haven’t got a choice, if you

are so compelled to do it, do it”

“Otherwise it is just too tough

unless you have a back-up job

Reaping the heat from chillies

• By Henri Ham

’TIS THE SEASON to chilli.

While it’s easy to get swept up

in everything Christmas related

right now, some people (mainly

me!) are equally (if not more)

excited about something else

during December – chilli season.

Chillies are one of my favourite

plants to grow and eat. It’s not

uncommon to see me wandering

around the nursery snacking on a

chilli as I work. Though I’m a little

more careful about it since the

time I forgot I’d left a Carolina

reaper in my pocket and it burnt

right through my pants to my leg.

Anyway, if you love chillies

as much as me or have always

been keen to try growing them,

now (as we head into the warmer

weather) is the perfect time to

plant them.

Chillies are surprisingly easy to

grow. All they require is a sunny,

well-drained spot in your garden

– similar to where you plant your

tomatoes, basil and parsley.

Right now, you want to be

HOT: These Bird’s Eye chillis are spicy, but pale in

comparison to other types.

planting chilli seedlings – that

are already around five to 10cm

tall. There’s a variety of chillies

available jalapeno and red

hot chilli have a milder spice.

Increasing in hotness, you’ll find

habanero red and bhut jolokia

(ghost pepper).

Now to planting your chillies

– like most veges, the better the

soil quality, the better start your

plants will have. Dig some compost,

sheep pellets or seaweed

into your vege garden to get it in

its best-growing condition.

Then dig small holes (around

4cm deep) and place your chilli

seedlings in. Plant them around

50cm apart, but check the individual

labels as varieties do vary

in size.

The ghost pepper can creep up

HOTTEST: The intense Bhut Jokola

is one of the hottest chillis in the

world.

to 180cm high, so will need a bit

more room between plants.

Over summer remember to

keep your chilli plants watered,

letting the soil almost dry out

between waterings.

You can give a good feed of

fertiliser every fortnight once

the flowers appear. If you’ve got

a tomato food fertiliser, you can

use this on your chillies too.

Once your chillies are almost

ready for picking, reduce watering

to increase their heat.

Remember to cut (rather than

pluck) them off the plant, to

encourage more fruiting.

Did you know chillies can also

thrive in pots too? You’ll need a

minimum 10-litre pot, with good

drainage holes.

Remember pots do tend to dry

out faster than your garden, so

keep on top of your watering. But

what I love about chillies in pots is

that you can move them round to

chase the sun at the end of summer

– and into a greenhouse (if

you’re lucky enough to have one)

for winter.

Chillies are perennial

plants, meaning (in the right

environment) they could last a

few seasons.

So, if you’re not in a frost-prone

area, give your plant a good

pruning once you’ve finished

harvesting (around April) and

you could have cracker chillies

from the same plant next

Christmas as well.

Zap in some colour with zinnias

• By Henri Ham

IF YOU’D seen me in the garden

lately, chances are I’d have been

tending to my summer veges.

With the (mostly) warm November

we’ve had, my vege and

herb garden has rocketed away.

But now that my greens are

sorted, I’m ready to add some

other colours to my garden beds

– and what better way to do this

than by planting some cheerful

zinnias.

Zinnias are bright, bold, and

best of all, one of the easiest

flowers to grow. In fact, so easy

they’ve been grown successfully

on the international space station;

in 2016.

If you’re interested in the

language of flowers, the zinnia

flower represents endurance and

lasting affection. And it’s easy to

see why - with zinnias being one

of the longest-blooming summer

flowers around.

Zinnias come in nearly every

colour imaginable and are ideal

for beds, borders and pots. Early

summer is the perfect time to

plant them. If you plant zinnia

seedlings now, you should start

to see zaps of colour in around

six weeks’ time.

You can get varieties that will

grow from 20cm to 1m high -

including tall, green and Thumbelina.

A new variety this season

is zinnia candy stripe; beautiful

flowers with unique freckles and

streaks on each bloom.

Once you’ve chosen your seedlings,

look for a place to plant.

Zinnias like a really sunny spot,

and will thrive in a rich humus

soil; however, interestingly they

will cope better than many

COLOURFUL: Zinnias are

one of the easiest flowers to

grow and add some vibrant

colour to your garden.

other flowers in a poorer soil too.

Next, dig small holes around

4cm deep and 15-30cm apart.

Place the seedling in and firmly

press down around its edges.

Give a good initial watering and

then only every few days, when

needed.

Everything seems to grow pretty

well at this time of the year, and

weeds are no exception. Make

your job easier by applying mulch

around your zinnias, to help keep

the weeds at bay. You can also

give your flowers a feed of general

garden fertiliser once a fortnight to

encourage their growth.

Watch out for caterpillars

and mealybugs on your zinnias;

these can be treated with insect

spray, or organically with a

steady stream of targeted water

and pinching fingers. Powdery

mildew can also affect zinnias

too. You can prevent this happening

by watering the roots

rather than leaves and giving the

plants breathing space between

each other.

After a month or so, pinch out

the top, to encourage a bushier

plant with more blooms. If

you’re not sure what pinching

is – it’s breaking off the top 2cm

of the growing tip of a plant to

encourage it to grow out wider,

before it grows up. The same

way you pinch off the very top of

your basil (and other herbs) so it

doesn’t go to seed.

A few weeks later you should

start to see zaps of colour coming

through. Picking the blooms

will stimulate more to blossom.

But leaving the flowers to dry on

their stalks, could result in them

self-seeding next season and

create a cottage garden feel.

If you want the cottage garden

look this summer, plant your

zinnias alongside cornflowers,

foxgloves, sweet williams and

poppies.

GETAWAY TO THE WEST COAST

Thursday December 5 2019 The Star 39

So much natural wilderness

to explore on the West Coast

The South Island’s West Coast can be

described as one of the few locations left

in New Zealand where untamed natural

wilderness remains as it has evolved over

many centuries, but with everything

the modern-day traveller looks for

in terms of transportation, range of

accommodation, visitor facilities and

services.

While visiting the Coast is enjoyable

any time of the year, the summer months

generally provide wonderful warm days

– made longer with daylight saving.

Two of the most popular endeavours

on the West Coast in summer are

walking and cycling, or a blend of both.

There are numerous opportunities for

short-duration walks right along this

narrow slice of land – some of less than

an hour and others taking as much as a

day.

The region’s visitor websites list short

walks in 18 locations over the 600

kilometres of the West Coast. Most of

the short walks are family-friendly, with

many relating to heritage sites, such

as the former gold and coal mining

endeavours of the early European

settlers. A short hike down to the banks

of the Hokitika River, where aqua waters

flow through a stunning gorge, is also

Experience a taste of

the gold rush days at

Shantytown

not to be missed, with easy access from

the Hokitika township.

You can also marvel at the region’s

unique scenic beauty on walks to its

most iconic natural spectacles. These

are the vast Oparara Arches northeast

of Karamea, the pancake rocks at

Punakaiki and the Fox and Franz Josef

glaciers in the region’s south – walking

on the cold, packed ice of the glaciers

formed over millennia is a memorable

experience.

The West Coast presents a plethora of

biking opportunities, both for serious

mountain bikers and those that prefer

a more leisurely pace on a bike built for

comfort not for speed.

Two multi-day biking experiences are

centred on the Old Ghost Road and the

West Coast Wilderness Trail. The latter

can be done as a whole, or in stages

as the mood dictates and fitness levels

permit.

The Old Ghost Road provides an

85-kilometre single-track adventure over

multiple days, through remote valleys,

over mountaintops and along river

gorges. It’s graded four, so is not one for

novice MTB riders. The Old Ghost Road

is a dual-purpose facility, which can be

undertaken as a multi-day walk as well

as by bike.

Following a coastal route, the West

Coast Wilderness Trail is promoted as a

“cycle experience like no other”. Ideally

starting from Greymouth, a series of

short rides can be undertaken, and with

smooth trails, places to eat and plenty

to do along the way, it’s a great way to

spend a few idyllic days on The Coast.

While the South Island’s West Coast is well known for its

magnificent scenery and glaciers, no visit to the area is complete

without experiencing Shantytown.

The discovery of gold in 1864 led to a population “explosion”

– from around 300 to almost 30,000 residents. Isolation, rugged

terrain and extreme weather conditions produced stories of

fortitude and ingenuity.

Shantytown tells these stories through a fascinating mix of

experience and displays. Ride the Steam Train along an original

tramway through native rainforest; experience the sights and

sounds of a working sawmill. Watch the mighty sluice gun in action

then follow the races and flumes to the gold claim and learn the

technique of how to pan for your own gold – a strike is guaranteed!

The beautiful setting on over 200 hectares (500 acres) of native

rainforest offers a feeling of remoteness, while only 10 minutes from

the seaside town of Greymouth. The rainforest is easily accessible

with short bush walks and trails around the park.

The village, born of the gold rush, offers delicious refreshments

from King Dick’s Cafe, while the kids can enjoy the flying fox, or try

their hand at the gold rush Treasure Hunt.

For a memento of your visit to Shantytown nothing is better than

to grab a costume and get an old time photo.

With over 30 shops and buildings to explore, there’s so much to

see and do at Shantytown.

Take a step

back in time...

Visit our iconic hotel in Blackball,

soak up the history in the spiritual

home of the NZ Labour movement.

Enjoy the sumptuous meals in our

renowned restaurant.

New Paparoa Track offers

more to explore on the Coast

New Zealand’s newest Great Walk, the

Paparoa Track on the spectacular West

Coast, was officially opened on Sunday,

December 1.

The first purpose-built walk to be

constructed by the Department of

Conservation, the $12 million track has

been eagerly awaited by walkers and

mountain bikers keen to explore this

previously little-known part of New

Zealand.

Located just north of Greymouth, the

55km track traverses from Blackball on

the eastern side of the Paparoa Range,

over the ranges through Paparoa National

Park and to Punakaiki. Incorporating

limestone karst landscapes, ancient

rainforest, weathered alpine forests and the

breathtaking Paparoa National Park, this

memorable journey will take walkers three

days to complete and mountain bikers two

days.

The track has been built on behalf of the

NZ Government at the request of the Pike

River families as a thank you from them

to provide a lasting economic benefit to

the West Coast, and as a tribute to the 29

miners who died in the 2010 Pike River

Mine Disaster.

Unfortunately a recent slip has closed

the middle section of the track. However,

the aim is to have the track fully open on

December 22, 2019, depending on the

weather.

Accommodation close to

the track

Formerly the Blackball Hilton invites

visitors to enjoy genuine West Coast

hospitality. Built in 1910, the historic

building has been restored as close as

possible to its original condition

Accommodation is available for up to

40 people inside (twin, double or group

rooms) sharing “off-suite” bathroom

facilities. Powered sites are also available.

Guests can enjoy delicious meals in the

town’s only a-la-carte restaurant, relax in

the garden bar, meet the locals, utilise the

free wi-fi, while Sky television is available

in the guest lounge.

The Paparoa Track Shuttle pick-up is

close to the hotel, and the kitchen staff can

provide plentiful provisions for the threeday

hike if required.

New tiny houses

Already famous for its tasty selection of

salamis, in preparation for the expected

influx of Paparoa Track visitors the

Blackball Salami Company has added

accommodation to its services with three

brand-new tiny houses being installed on

their property.

Each tiny house can accommodate two

people, either in a king-size bed or two

single beds, has an en suite bathroom and

a kitchen area with sink, fridge, electric

jug and toaster. Warm and sunny, these

tiny houses offer stunning views of the

mountains – a taste of what’s to come on

the track.

And of course, the Blackball Salami

Company’s selection of salamis provide a

tasty snack for track walkers and mountain

bikers to enjoy along the route.

Hazeldine pivotal in Lancaster

Park’s premiership title

• By Gordon Findlater

CANTERBURY’S TOP wicket

taker in one-day cricket this

summer proved he’s no mug

with the bat either, when he

returned to club level and helped

Lancaster Park win Sunday’s

premiership final.

Left-arm quick Andrew Hazeldine

- who bats right-handed

- came to the rescue late in

Lancaster Park’s innings after

batting first and falling to 138/8

in the 36th over. The 25-year-old

produced what would prove to

be a crucial knock of 43 from

46 deliveries in his side’s 30 run

victory over Old Boys Collegians.

Hazeldine’s innings included six

boundaries and helped Lancaster

Park to a total of 194 before he

was dismissed in the 48th over.

“It was a bit of an interesting

situation when I went in. I just

wanted to do the best I could for

the team and get a decent total

we could defend,” said Hazeldine.

Lancaster Park then bowled

OBC out for 164 in the 46th over.

However, the run chase looked

like being completed earlier

before Jeff Case was run out for

52. Angus Hamilton and Fynn

Hudson-Prentice were the best of

the bowlers, taking three wickets

a piece. Surprisingly, Hazeldine

wasn’t able to contribute with the

ball, taking no wickets and bowling

five wides and one no-ball

from his seven overs.

But, at domestic level Hazeldine

is in fine form. Earlier last

week he helped Canterbury to

win two of their three Ford Trophy

one-day matches at Hagley

Oval. In four matches this season

Hazeldine has taken nine wickets

at an average of 19. His best effort

came in a resounding 117 run

victory over Otago, with figures

of 3/14.

The zippy left-armer is capable

of bowling over 140km/h and

being shorter in stature adds a

different dimension by skidding

the ball on.

The ability to hurry guys up

helps, but at the same time I

Collegians to win the one-day premiership final by

30 runs.

have to be a lot more skilful and

controlled with my bowling now.

Out and out speed doesn’t always

work,” he said.

Growing up in England,

Hazeldine first picked up a bat

as a toddler. While he has always

been a left-arm bowler, he admits

the chopping and changing

between left and right-handed

batting over the years has led

to developing a handy reverse

sweep shot.

In 2006 he moved to Christchurch

with his family and went

onto play for the St Andrew’s

College first XI and Lancaster

Park. Last summer he was

offered his first contract with

Canterbury Cricket and admits

the reality of being a professional

cricketer is still setting in.

“It’s still quite a pinch yourself,

can’t believe it’s happening kind

of thing. The environment and

set up we have if fantastic. It feels

like a big family and we all get

along,” he said.

Canterbury now turn their

focus to the Twenty20 Super

Smash which they begin at

Hagley Oval on December 15.

Hazeldine has just one domestic

T20 cap to his name, but is

hopeful the strong Ford Trophy

performances could see him

showcase his abilities in the

short format.

Proudly brought to you by...

Jorja Miller stars in

CGHS sevens success

• By Gordon Findlater

IN TERMS of bursting onto the

scene it doesn’t get much bigger

than scoring four tries in the

final during your school’s first

ever win at the country’s biggest

sevens rugby tournament.

Jorja Miller was the star of the

show when Christchurch Girls’

High School won their first

ever Condor Sevens title. The

15-year-old is now being pipped

as an up and coming superstar

of the women’s game after winning

the most valuable player

award at the tournament.

Although she scored four

tries in her side’s 29-14 win over

Howick College in the final,

arguably her finest moment of

brilliance came in a nail-biting

win over Hamilton Girls’ High

School in the semi-final.

Golden point extra-time was

required after the scores were

locked at 17-17 on full-time.

Miller then stole the show with

a spectacular individual try

from inside the CGHS 22m

line which was started with

an impressive side step. It then

took her just 90sec into the

final against Howick to pull off

another try from her own 22,

courtesy of another trademark

sidestep.

“She just went next level

Tower JuncTion

Phone: 348 6020 Open 7 days 11am to late www.speightstowerjunction.co.nz

over the weekend and blew

the tournament wide open.

She gave the girls around her a

lot of confidence to play their

part as well,” said coach Jamie

Livingston.

“Her ability to jump sidestep

probably isn’t something that

has been seen since Benji Marshall,

but she’s a very down to

earth kid.”

After finishing runners-up in

2017 and third last year Livingston

says becoming the first ever

South Island girls team to win

the tournament was icing on the

cake.

“It’s a pretty amazing effort

considering what the North

Island schools put into their

sevens programmes, so we

were pretty over the moon that

our goal has been achieved,” he

said.

Earlier, CGHS recorded wins

over Aorere College (24-12),

Long Bay College (31-0) and

Tauranga Girls’ High School

(40-0) in pool play. In the

quarter-final they accounted for

Manurewa High School 31-12.

Next weekend Miller will

play for the New Zealand team

at the World Schools festival.

Fellow CGHS player Salome

Naikau has been selected for the

NZ Fijian team to play at the

tournament.

TRAVELERS: Connor Heap (left) and James Meredith will compete in the final of the

country’s biggest interclub tennis competition tomorrow night.

Christchurch tennis duo

serving it up in Auckland

• By Gordon Findlater

TWO Christchurch players are

at the heart of an Auckland club

looking to win the country’s

biggest inter-club tennis title for

the first time on Friday night.

For the past two months James

Meredith and Connor Heap

have travelled to Auckland to

help Cockle Bay reach their first

Caro Bowl final. They will now

play a major role if the club are

to claim the title when they take

on Next Gen at Stanley St. It

will be the club’s second grand

final appearance after falling to

Blockhouse Bay four years ago.

The one thing we’ve got this

year is depth. One player can’t

win a team competition, all

four guys have to chip in,” said

Meredith.

In their 6-1 semi-final win

TO THE many Crusaders fans

who feel annoyed or angry about

the team choosing to rebrand by

changing their logo, your team is

not to blame.

In the wake of Friday’s new

Crusaders logo following a

rebranding exercise, many fans

have vented their frustration –

predominantly online – some

vowing to never purchase Crusaders

merchandise again.

Don’t get me wrong, I for one

would have loved to have seen

the original logo stay, but some

perspective is needed when

over Blockhouse Bay Meredith

and Heap combined to win their

doubles match 6-4, 6-7, 10-5.

In singles Meredith defeated

George Stoupe 6-4, 6-0, while

Heap swept past Justin Megraw

6-1, 6-1.

“It’s a real confidence booster

having him [Heap] behind me.

I know he’s not going to miss

many balls,” said Meredith.

Meredith has played at No 1

throughout the competition for

Cockle Bay and is likely to come

up against New Zealand Davis

Cup player Rhett Purcell.

Cockle Bay has had a strong

Christchurch presence since

gaining promotion to the

premier Auckland competition

seven years ago. Meredith’s older

brother Matt has been a regular

over the years, while Heap’s

younger brother Dylan turned

understanding why it didn’t. One

thing which has become apparent

is that many of the angered

fans seem to believe the decision

to change the logo was the Crusaders’

decision-makers buckling

from Saturday’s home match

against Auckland to secure

home advantage for the National

Women’s League grand final.

At the weekend the Pride

were held to a nil-all draw in

Auckland by second placed

Northern Lights in a possible

preview of the grand final. Going

into this weekend’s final round

Canterbury are three points clear

of Northern and six points clear

of third-placed Auckland who

will need a win at English Park to

have any chance of making it to

the final on December 15.

In October the defending

champion Pride defeated Auckland

1-0, a performance which

Pride coach Alana Gunn still

rates as one of the team’s best this

campaign. They can expect the

visitors to come out all guns blazing

on Saturday with their season

on the line.

They need three points otherwise

their season is done . . . we’ll

definitely play for that. The message

will be if we don’t concede then we

have a home final,” said Gunn.

The Pride’s only defeat of the

season came in a 1-3 loss at

English Park to the Lights in

October. The side will take confidence

from the weekend’s draw

where they kept a clean sheet

against the team they’re likely to

play again on the biggest day of

the season.

“I feel like we had the better of

them for longer periods of time

. . . we were happy with a point

and a clean sheet,” said Gunn.

Get adventurous in Toyota’s RAV4

WHILE TOYOTA’S new RAV4

stands out for its family-friendly

profile, there’s no doubt Toyota

want the latest generation model

to appeal to a wider audience.

Included in the eight-model

line-up is a one-specification

four-wheel-drive version labelled

Adventure. It is the hero car in the

line-up and such is its popularity

there may be a wait while stocks

land in good supply.

There’s not a lot mechanically

different to the standard RAV4,

however, the Adventure gets a

body kit and interior treatment

that makes it stand out markedly

from the rest of the range. If you

like bold and brash it is the car

for you, large fenders, aggressive

bumper and grille, and big wheels

are there to tempt. Inside, there is

also bright orange detailing.

It is also a high-grade model,

most of what is found in Limited

specification is fitted to the

Adventure and, as you might

expect Adventure rounds out the

series at $48,990. Bear in mind

the RAV4 starts at $34,990, and

includes hybrid models which

land from $38,990.

The Adventure is in the lineup

as a point of difference, and

after a week in the car I can

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

certainly see its appeal. When I

tested the hybrid model in these

columns in July I suggested it was

the sport utility vehicle for me,

and that hasn’t changed. However,

I would be tempted with the Adventure,

it looks a little bit rugged

and it has appeal in that way.

As I’ve covered in the past, the

new RAV4 is all-new, the platform

is fresh and the body style

quite a departure from the previous

generation.

That being the case, it is stateof-the-art

mechanically and that

shows when you are driving it,

not so much in terms of mechanical

power but it handles a

lot differently, it is more stable

and for lack of better words,

more normal, more car-like from

behind the wheel.

Yet, the Adventure has off-road

ability. The downside of evaluating

a four-wheel-drive vehicle

off-the-seal in spring is that it gets

very dirty, so I didn’t tackle anything

too serious, but I did use an

old forestry track near Hororata

which is a good test of suspension

control. The ground was

very soft thanks to a drenching a

day or two before, however, the

RAV4 never felt as if I was going

to end up with a complete loss of

TOYOTA RAV4 ADVENTURE: Capable on sand or seal.

• Price – Toyota RAV4

Adventure, $48,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4610mm; width, 1865mm;

height, 1685mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2487cc, 152kW, 243Nm,

six-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.5sec

• Fuel usage – 6.8l/100km

traction.

That’s due a lot to the engine

and dynamic torque vectoring

drive management protocols

which can be dialled in by the

driver. There’s a console-mounted

button which selects the choice of

several modes – snow, mud, sand,

dirt, rock. There are also protocols

for highway driving, eco,

normal or sport.

Each has its own unique character

with the end result being

the best outcome depending on

the surface. Take into account

too, that the wheels and rubber

are up an inch from the standard

models, the big Yokohama tyres

(235/55 x 19in) are street-treaded

but they do dig out grip on soft

surfaces.

The non-hybrid RAV4 buyer

effectively has a choice of two engines,

2-litre or 2.5-litre. The Adventure

has the big displacement

unit and it is an easy-worker. The

benefit of cubic capacity is the

lack of obvious stress, the 2487cc

twin-camshaft engine just lopes

along and works freely through a

six-speed automatic transmission.

The big benefit of that is the lack

of fuel it uses, there is little loading

so Toyota’s claim of 6.8-litres per

100km (42mpg) usage on a combined

cycle is not unachievable.

My time with the test car

returned figures of 8.2l/100km

(35mpg) with a 6l/100km

(47mpg) instantaneous figure

available at 100km/h, the engine

ticking over slowly at just

1600rpm.

If lively acceleration is needed,

the engine will burst into life

with strong mid-range performance

– standstill to 100km/h in

8.5sec and 80km/h to 120km/h

in 5.4sec. The latter relates

directly to engine power, Toyota

claim outputs of 152kW and

243Nm, both outputs arriving

tall inthe rev band at 6600rpm

and 4500rpm respectively, that

matters little, the specific outputs

are strong enough to provide that

direct flow of power right across

the rev range.

On my highway evaluation I

was passed by a RAV4 of an earlier

generation. The vehicle was fourup

and on the roof rails sat several

sets of skis. I figured Mt Hutt was

the destination, and I couldn’t help

but think how suited to that road

the RAV4 was. I strongly suspect

the occupants were a little envious

they weren’t driving the latest

generation model, especially the

Adventure model.

Its name lends itself to a role

just that little left-of-centre, yet

it still is the quintessential RAV4

that Kiwi buyers have come to

embrace.

Proposed Changes to

Cashmere High School Zone

Over recent years increasing in-zone student

aim to reduce our school roll.

All information on the proposed zone changes is

available on our school website (www.cashmere.

The Cashmere High School Board of Trustees

are seeking community consultation on the

proposed school zone changes before a final

decision can be made.

A public meeting will be held at 6pm on

Thursday 30th January 2020 in the Cashmere

High School Performing Arts Centre.

Please either email submissions to:

bah@cashmere.school.nz or post to Cashmere
