Countdown to City2Surf

WITH NEW Year’s resolutions quickly

approaching, there’s no better time to

set yourself a personal goal than at one

of the country’s biggest fun runs – the

City2Surf.

On March 22, the Les Mills City2Surf

will celebrate its 46th running and as

always will have an option for all types

of fitness levels with a 14km and 6km

option.

The 14km event starts at 9am at Pioneer

Stadium, and the 6km event starts at

10am at Hansens Park, all culminating

for a massive finish at Ferrymead Playing

Fields where there will be plenty of

entertainment and prizes on offer.

“The Les Mills City2Surf gives

everyone the outlet to do something for

themselves. Challenge yourself to the

14km distance or give yourself a first test

and try to finish the 6km fun run,” said

event manager Jon Holmes.

“It doesn’t matter who you are or where

you’ve come from, running/jogging/

walking the Les Mills City2Surf is the

most welcoming and achievable thing you

can do in 2020,” he said.

Bus lane project ‘a great idea’

• By Bea Gooding

BUSINESS OWNER Lucas

Kelly says the $2.5 million

priority bus lane project on

Main North Rd will be a good

thing for the area.

The construction between

Winston Ave

and Sawyers

Arms Rd is

due to begin in

early January,

but there

have been

concerns from

Lucas Kelly

businesses

in the area

because of the removal of onstreet

parking and over the time

it will take to implement the

changes.

But Mr Kelly, who owns The

Barber Lounge said: “We should

see it as a positive thing. If it’s

going to lessen the congestion

and encourage people to take

the bus more often, then I think

it’s a great idea.”

The works are expected to

take six months to complete,

in a bid to reduce congestion

on one of the busiest streets in

Christchurch.

There are currently 520 buses

per day that operate through

this section on Main North Rd.

One bus can carry 50 passengers

at a time, creating the potential

for 26,000 people movements

each way.

Mr Kelly believed people

should be patient because the

new bus lanes would benefit

everyone in the long run.

“Yes it’s going to take six

months to complete, but we

should be patient. We don’t

think it’ll affect our business,

but we should focus on

improvement, not duration,” he

said.

A number of businesses on

Main North Rd would not talk

to Nor’West News about the

changes.

The city council’s contractor,

CityCare, will begin installing

northbound bus lanes in

early January, along with layout

changes at the Northlands

Shopping Centre entrance and

the installation of new traffic

BUSY: The plan

Main North Rd.


lights at the Main North Rd and

Grassmere St intersection.

City council transport

planning and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis said the project

will improve the reliability

of travel times for public

transport.

“It’s one of the busiest streets

in Christchurch and carries high

volumes of buses taking people

between the city centre and the

northern suburbs.”

In Brief

MAJOR PRIZE

The Greater Hornby Residents’

Association Facebook page is

soon set to reach 4000 likes. The

association has teamed up with

NZV8 Hot Laps to giveaway to a

prizewinner three laps of Mike

Pero Motorsport Park Raceway

in a V8 Ford or Holden. All

those that like the page once it has

reached 4000 likes will go in the

draw.

NO STOPPING RESTRICTIONS

No stopping restrictions will be

placed on Bartlett St in Riccarton.

The restrictions are to improve

visibility for road users when

exiting driveways in the bend and

were approved at the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board meeting on Tuesday.

BUS STOP UPGRADES

A number of bus stop upgrades

will be made to the bus stop

on Halswell Rd. The Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board has approved for the bus

stop on 286 Halswell Rd to be

relocated to 278/280 Halswell

Rd. A bus shelter will also be

installed beside 278 Halswell Rd

and the existing outbound bus

stop opposite 284/286 will be

marked.

Cutting a path through to a new direction

• By Bea Gooding

TRANSFORMATION: Barber Zarian Taungahihifo has gone from mixing with the wrong crowd to

claiming a top award at the New Zealand Association of Registered Hairdressers competition.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

GROWING UP, Zarian

Taungahihifo never experienced

being in the spotlight.

The 19-year-old encountered

issues many young people of

today commonly face – a lack of

direction after high school or the

discovery of one’s identity and

place in the world.

Rubbing shoulders with

the “wrong crowd” pulled Mr

Taungahihifo down a dangerous

path of drugs and delinquency

at a young age, but after a sitdown

with his father, he decided

enough was enough.

“One day I sat down with my

dad and evaluated where I was

at, and nothing positive was happening.

So we started looking for

other options,” he said.

He undertook work experience

at The Barber Lounge for a few

months before being offered

an apprenticeship through the

Ministry of Social Development’s

Mana and Mahi programme,

designed to help young people

acquire valuable qualifications

and skills.

It was not long before he tasted

success, competing at the New

Zealand Association of Registered

Hairdressers competition

at Ara Institute of Canterbury,

which showcased talent from

hairdressers and barbers nationwide

last August.

Said Mr Taungahihifo: “Growing

up my whole life the spotlight

has never been on me, and

to hear my name being called

out for first place was pretty

overwhelming.”

He took out the top prize in

two categories – Men’s En Trend

Classic Barbering: The Fade and

the Ray Astwood Barbering

Award, both in the new talent

category.

He said his proudest

achievement would not have

been possible without the

mentorship and support of his

“family” at The Barber Lounge in

Papanui who welcomed him like

a brother.

“I love life a lot better now.

I’m in a better headspace, in a

better environment and around

positive people who have goals,”

he said.

“Back then I was hanging out

with people who would only put

me in the wrong positions and

didn’t really care about me.”

It has been said that it takes a

village to raise a child, and The

Barber Lounge senior barber

Lucas Kelly felt this to be true.

Mr Kelly and the team were

the driving force behind Mr

Taungahihifo’s success, instilling

in him the Polynesian way of

humility, respect and hospitality.

Said Mr Taungahihifo: “Once

I started working at the lounge,

I learned how to respect myself,

the peers around me and to just

be myself.”

Mr Kelly saw himself in

the 19-year-old when he went

through similar issues in his own

life, fuelling his desire to mentor

the teenager.

“That’s what I identified

in Zarian when I met him,

that he was just a new generation

of what I was, growing up

with similar backgrounds,” he

said.

“Something that stuck out

was if I had someone like me

when I was in my own situation,

I would’ve wished somebody

would help me too.”

in life

Born and bred in Mairehau,

Mr Taungahihifo was in a “tough

place” during school when he was

dealing with the separation of his

parents and being bullied for his

size.

“I was a bit of a bully too as I

got older because I was lacking

self-confidence, so it made me

feel better about myself,” he said.

As much as it was a learning

curve, he believed that in the

future he would become a mentor

for someone else, passing on the

knowledge and experiences that

were shown to him.

Said Mr Taungahihifo: “With

what’s happened to me, I want to

change someone else’s life

too, someone who was in my

position and be like how Lucas is

to me.”

Amongst the pumping

music, buzzing conversations

and warmth of brotherhood

within the walls of The Barber

Lounge, Mr Taungahihifo was

proud of his journey and perseverance.

He advised young people stuck

in a difficult situation to surround

themselves with positive

people and to take a chance on

something new.

“Don’t be scared, I was, but

once you step through that door

of being scared, the sooner you

step outside your comfort zone,”

WARMTH: The Barber

Lounge in Papanui fosters

a brotherhood that includes

Zarian Taungahihifo.

he said.

From public speaking, finishing

his qualification, entering

next year’s NZARH competition

and attending industry awards

– 2020 will prove to be a big year

for Mr Taungahihifo.

“In a short space of time, a lot

has changed and it’s only going to

go up from here.”

Gillies overcome with award

• By Bea Gooding

JENNY GILLIES is no stranger

to receiving awards in the

costume-making industry.

And she has now been

recognised with a Christchurch

Civic Award.

For 25 years, the costumemaker

has helped foster

Christchurch’s “garden city”

image through her fabric floral

creations, both in the city and

abroad.

Mrs Gillies was overcome

with the news of her nomination.

“It felt pretty fantastic; I was

quite overcome when I found

out about it,” she said.

“To me, it’s very important,

especially after everything the

city has gone through in the last

10 years.”

The Civic Awards are presented

each year by the city

council and are awarded to 10

groups or individuals who have

gone above and beyond to make

a difference in their community.

Civic Awards committee chair

councillor Yani Johanson said

the awards acknowledge those

who generously gave their time

and energy to benefit others.

“The groups and individuals

who are receiving awards

have worked tirelessly over

COLOURFUL: Jenny Gillies has been recognised with a

Christchurch Civic Award.

many years to make a positive

difference and we owe them

a debt of gratitude,” said Cr

Johanson.

Nestled in the heart of the

city, Mrs Gillies’ Enchanted

Garden was a popular hot-spot

for tourists and locals alike, with

wearable works inspired by the

surroundings of the Botanic

Gardens.

She has always had a keen interest

in flowers, gardening and

sewing which has further grown

her passion in the costumemaking

industry, creating works

of art to bring joy to others.

Said Mrs Gillies: “It’s also a

haven for people that have been

in the hospital getting treatment,

we’ve found that it’s very

therapeutic for them here.”

Born and bred in Canterbury,

her pride for the city remained

unshaken.

“For me, this is quite

special and I’m very proud

of Christchurch – even when

rattled and shaken it doesn’t

matter, I love it here.”

Rangi Ruru’s high-achieving school

leavers presented with awards

DESCRIBED AS a young

woman of integrity, humility

and intelligence, Emily Davy is

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School’s Dux

for 2019.

Announced at last week’s endof-year

prize-giving in front of a

packed audience at Christchurch

Town Hall, school principal Dr

Sandra Hastie said Ms Davy

demonstrated an outlook beyond

her years and lead by example.

“Emily has repeatedly gained

Elite Academic Colours, however,

this is only one of her exceptional

attributes with music,

future problem solving, service

and sustainability tracking

alongside,” said Dr Hastie.

“This year she is ranked at

or near the top in all six of her

subjects. We know that behind

the successes are hours of commitment

and plain hard work

that contribute to this.”

Year 13 student Tulsi Lathia

won the title of Best All-Round

Girl, a highly respected award at

the school.

An entrepreneur at heart, a

humanist, and a self-starter, Dr

Hastie said Ms Lathia lived to

help others which empowered

the people that she was helping.

PRIZE: Year 13 student Tulsi

Lathia was named Best All-

Round Girl at the Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School prize-giving. ​

Said Dr Hastie: “She has a

wonderful, positive attitude.

Tulsi has willingly given many

hours of her time mentoring

younger students, in leadership

roles, in sports and was on the

Service Council.”

In November, Ms Lathia and

her Young Enterprise teammates

recently launched their unique

cookbook, Spoonful of Spice,

which presented the stories

behind the recipes of refugee and

immigrant women.

Said Ms Lathia on last month’s

cookbook launch: “You need to

persevere to get to your end goal.

It’s not easy, it never will be, and

you just need to keep on trying.”

Rangi Ruru student Amber

Spurway was also named this

year’s Proxime Accessit and received

the Dorothy Bates Trophy

for outstanding potential.

Dr Hastie said she was a mentor

for junior students, and her

passion for learning had seen her

gain 100 per cent of excellence

grades in NCEA Level 2.

“Amber is never willing to

leave an assumption untested, or

an argument half-spun. She has

the ability to interpret and infer

meaning beyond the words she’s

presented with,” she said.

Rotary

supports

families

in need

NEARLY $4000 worth

of groceries were packed

and distributed by the

Christchurch Rotary Club

to help families in need with

Christmas.

The club gathered at the

Cashmere Club hall recently

to pack 125 boxes of groceries

for distribution amongst city

charities and organisations

who are at the front line when

dealing with families feeling

the financial pressures during

the season.

The organisations include

Christchurch East Primary

School, Family Help Trust,

Prisoners Aid and Rehabilitation

Society, Christchurch

(Anglican) City Mission, Salvation

Army, Canterbury Core

Daddy’s and Battered Women’s

The groceries were

CHRISTCHURCH GIRLS’

High School will have to wait

12 months to be national

cricket champions after

finishing runners-up last week

at Hagley Park and Christ’s

College.

The entire squad will be

back in 12 months time, eager

to go one better after falling at

the final hurdle of the Gillette

Venus Cup.

CGHS went unbeaten

through pool play, including

beating Dunedin’s St Hilda’s,

who knocked them out

last year, to make the final

before falling by 80 runs to

Auckland’s Epsom Girls’

Grammar in the final.

CGHS coach Hannah

Beatson said her team

showed real intensity in the

field throughout, capitalising

on the opportunities they

created.

Opener Casey Liddington

starred with the bat, scoring

174 runs in six innings, laying

the platform for major wins

in the early rounds including

a six-wicket win over St

Matthew’s Collegiate and a

pair of nine wicket wins over

Hutt Valley High School and

Epsom Girls’.

“Our top-order did a great

job, lead by Casey and we

tried to keep that momentum

throughout the three days,”

she said.

In the final, it was a different

story.

“I thought Epsom gained the

momentum in the first over of

the game and never let us get

SPORT

into the game.

“We had a young team this

year and we didn’t have one

year 13 player so it is very

exciting to try to win it all in

2020.”

Beatson has already

organised a warm-up

game against St Hilda’s for

October, a repeat of the first

women’s match ever played

at the well-known ground at

Loburn.

Now that exams are over,

kickstart your career in 2020!

Young ballerina takes

second place in exams

• By Bea Gooding

FOURTEEN-year-old

ballerina Riley Lyons knew

she would be competing

against dancers much

older than herself at the

New Zealand Association

of Modern Dance annual

examinations last month.

But when she pirouetted

her way into second place

at the scholarship awards

event in Wellington,

against dancers up to year

13, her surprise was an

understatement.

Riley, a year 9 student

at St Andrew’s College

said it felt “surprising but

amazing” to not only be

nominated for the scholarship

prize but to take out

second place.

“I went to the awards

hoping that I might be able

to make the finals, but to

come second was a huge

shock,” she said.

Gaining entry into the

nationwide competition

was not an easy feat as she

had to gain the top ballet

mark in her examinations

and be personally

nominated by an NZAMD

examiner for the prize.

Riley began her ballet

journey when she was just

four-years-old and splits

SUCCESS: Riley Lyons, of St Andrew’s College, was

shocked with her second place at the New Zealand

Association of Modern Dance annual examinations.

her training between Garden

City Dance Academy

and St Andrew’s Ballet

Academy, where she was

nominated for the award.

Subsequently, she was

the only ballet dancer from

Christchurch to attend the

scholarship awards.

She credited her success

to the support from her

family and teachers, hard

work and countless hours

of training. But Riley is

determined to continue

improving and broaden

her knowledge of the dance

world.

“One of my main goals

this year was to be reaccepted

into the associates

programme at the New

Zealand School of Dance

in Wellington for 2020,”

she said.

“Fortunately, I was

accepted and I get to

train intensively with

world-class teachers. It’s

an inspiring place and I’m

very privileged to be a part

of this elite programme.”

Young explorer leads

classmates to the ice

FOLLOWING IN his ancestor’s

footsteps, seven-year-old

Ollie Criglington led his own

expedition to the ice treating

his Cotswold School classmates

to a day at the International

Antarctic Centre.

The year 2 pupil recently

won a “dress as your favourite

explorer” competition at the

ChristchurchNZ Explore Antarctica

fun day, and because of

this, he was able to discover the

wonders of Antarctica with 23 of

his classmates and their parents.

The young explorer represented

the fifth generation of

his family with links to the icy

continent. His great-great grandfather,

William McDonald, was

an able seaman on the Terra

Nova of Robert Falcon Scott’s

last expeditions.

The International Antarctic

Centre general manager Todd

Schmidt said he was “delighted”

to learn of the many connections

that Ollie’s family had with the

ice.

“Ollie is a true Antarctic

ambassador, a wonderful local

example of the way our younger

generation is challenging us all

to do more,” said Mr Schmidt.

Ollie and his classmates were

able to learn about climate

change in Antarctica, the vital

research scientists carried out

and the legacies of explorers

before him.

His great grandfather, Alan,

and grandmother Anne also

have significant links with the

continent, along with Ollie’s

“Uncle Richie,” a field training

instructor who is currently on

his eighth season in Antarctica.

Ollie’s favourite parts about

his visit to the International

Antarctic Centre was riding in

the Hägglund, the Antarctic

storm experience and patting the

Huskies.

He wished to explore

Antarctica one day, working in

the field “just like Uncle Richie.”

FAMILY LINKS:

grandmother,

New manager excited

for challenge ahead

• By Bea Gooding

MEET SMITHS City

Northwood’s newest store

manager: Davin Vaikvee.

Born and raised in Wellington,

he began his Smiths City journey

in 2012 as a manager, relocating

from Lower Hutt, to Invercargill

and now here in Christchurch.

Mr Vaikvee said he was excited

for the challenge ahead, working

in a location that offers customers

choice and competition with a

“community feel about it.”

“I’m proud of my progression

within Smiths City and the support

I’ve received from management,”

he said.

“I’m now the manager of a flagship

store in the city where it all

began over 100 years ago, and I’m

excited at the challenge of providing

home solutions to Northwood

and surrounding communities.”

He had a “typical” kiwi

upbringing, spending plenty of

time in the outdoors - whether it

was at the beach or spending the

summer on the family farm in

the Waikato.

Before he joined the Smiths

City family, he worked in the

food and beverage industry as

a regional manager in the lower

North Island, along with a stint

in Wanaka.

Keeping active is a must for Mr

Vaikvee, especially heading out

of town with his fishing rod in

tow. Being in Canterbury meant

the excitement of catching wild

salmon, something he looked

forward to.

Even though Christchurch was

ideal for its close proximity to

rivers, beaches and back country,

it’s the people he liked the most

about Canterbury.

“I find Cantabrians likeminded

in that they are practical

people and don’t shy away from

a good conversation or offer for

help. They’re great people.”

Tasty Bites

The perfect Xmas

table centerpiece

The most perfect sticky

glaze is slathered all

over this juicy, tender,

baked Brown Sugar

Mustard Glazed Ham,

with crisp edges and an

incredible flavour

Brown Sugar

Mustard-Glazed Ham

Ingredients

4-5kg bone-in fully cooked

ham

½ cup water

½ cup unsalted butter

1 cup brown sugar

½ cup honey

2 tablespoons Dijon

mustard

¼ teaspoon ground

cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground cloves

4 cloves garlic, smashed

Directions

Preheat the oven to 150

deg C. and arrange a rack

in the lower third. Remove

any plastic packaging or

netting from the ham. Trim

away the rind and discard.

Set the ham aside to rest

at room temperature for

1-2hr.

Line a baking tray or

dish with several sheets of

aluminium foil or baking

paper if you prefer (it will

make clean-up a lot easier).

Remove the rind or skin

of the ham, ensuring you

leave the fat on. Using a

sharp knife score a 2-3cm

wide diamond pattern

(don’t cut more than 5mm

deep) over the entire ham.

Place the ham in the baking

tray; pour ⅓ cup of water

into the base of the pan

and cover the ham with

two pieces of foil or baking

paper and bake for 30min.

Meanwhile, heat the

butter in a small pot or

saucepan over medium

heat until golden browned.

Add in the brown sugar,

honey, mustard, cinnamon

and cloves, stirring to mix

How to remove

ham rind

1. Cut a line through the

skin all around the shank

end.

2. Insert a sharp knife

between the rind and fat

and run it along to detach

the rind.

3. Using your fingers,

gently separate the rind

from the fat, insterting

your hand deeper into the

ham to keep detaching it.

4. Peel off and discard the

rind.

together well until the

brown sugar has completely

dissolved, (about 2min).

Reduce heat to low and

add in the garlic. Allow it to

become fragrant, cooking

for a further minute or two

until the glaze just begins

to simmer, then set it aside

and let cool to lukewarm

(the glaze should be the

consistency of roomtemperature

honey).

After 30min baking time,

carefully remove the ham

from the oven and increase

the oven temperature to

220 deg C. Discard the

foil or parchment paper

and pour ⅓ of the glaze all

over the ham, brushing in

between the cuts to evenly

cover. Return to the oven

and bake uncovered for

15min.

Remove from the oven,

brush with another third

of the glaze and some of

the pan juices, and repeat

again after 15min more

1 2

3 4

minutes of baking until a

dark golden-brown crust

has formed, (about 30min

total). For added depth of

flavour, mix some of the

ham pan juices together

with the glaze in the pot

which will help keep it

runny enough for brushing.

If your crust is still pink

after there suggested baking

time, turn on your broiler

(or oven grill), and allow it

to broil for 2-5min, while

keeping an eye on it so

it doesn’t burn from the

sugar.

Let the ham rest 10-

20min before slicing.

NOTES

If your glaze has been

over simmered and begins

baste, add some of the

REAL ESTATE

Make every day feel

like a holiday...

6 Dudley Road, Lyttelton

Price reduced to $689,000

3 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 1 kitchen | 2 living rooms

1 office/study | 1 workshop | 2 car garage | Listing VTP143

Set on an extensively landscaped 847m²

fully fenced section, this 3-bedroom home

enjoys breath-taking harbour views.

An added bonus is the sunroom that

would make a perfect office or hobby room

and completing the appeal is basement

storage, double garage, studio and

workshop.

The open plan living provides fantastic

indoor/outdoor flow with double doors

that open to a large deck that wraps around

the front of the home, overlooking the

harbour.

With the spacious master bedroom

opening out to the deck it offers the perfect

spot for that morning coffee.

Upstairs the home is kept warm with a

heatpump plus the added benefit of a DVS

ventilation.

Our owners have called this home for

more than 30 years, but it is now time for

someone else to own this little piece of

paradise.

Why not wake up and feel like you are on

holiday every day!

Lyttelton has so much on offer, fall

in love with the views and the amazing

community. Surrounded by fabulous

walkways, perfect picnic spots, beaches,

great eateries, farmers markets plus a whole

harbour to enjoy all aquatic activities.

Owners want this sold, make an offer.

Don’t let this one get away...call me today!

To arrange a private viewing
