Residents fear for safety<br />

accessing Langdons Rd<br />

Northlink<br />

complex<br />

puts pressure<br />

on parking<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

A NEW shopping complex is<br />

already posing a major problem<br />

for nearby residents – they can’t<br />

get out of their driveways safely.<br />

Residents say the new<br />

Northlink shopping complex<br />

on Langdons Rd, Papanui,<br />

has resulted in more traffic.<br />

Combined with more vehicles<br />

now parking on the street, the<br />

lack of vision exiting driveways<br />

has caused safety issues.<br />

Resident John Williams said:<br />

“The new Langdons Rd shopping<br />

complex has and will create<br />

on-street parking to a degree<br />

which conspires to create a visual<br />

hazard for residents exiting their<br />

properties by motor vehicle.<br />

“If a resident has an accident<br />

leaving their driveway they will be<br />

at fault for driving into oncoming<br />

traffic, this is not acceptable.”<br />

Damaged graves could cost family<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

The revolution<br />

in heat pumps<br />

is here now!<br />

NORTHWOOD resident<br />

Lynette King is shocked by the<br />

state of the grave sites of her<br />

relatives.<br />

Mrs King’s great grandmother,<br />

great grandfather and two of<br />

their sons, one who died in<br />

World War 1, are buried at<br />

Bromley Cemetery and their<br />

gravestones are damaged.<br />

Mrs King said her son in law<br />

Steve Berry is a concrete layer<br />

and he wants to do the repairs<br />

for free himself.<br />

The city council have said<br />

this can’t happen and Mrs<br />

King’s family will have to pay<br />

a city council-approved contractor<br />

if they want the graves<br />

repaired.<br />

Mr Berry has installed headstones<br />

at Linwood Cemetery and<br />

Harewood Memorial Gardens<br />

and Crematorium in the past<br />

and estimates going through a<br />

city council-approved will cost<br />

about $5000.<br />

Said Mr Berry: “I do a bit of<br />

work for them [the city council]<br />

and when they do get contractors<br />

to do work it is I’d say<br />

extravagant but they may not say<br />

that.”<br />

Said city council community<br />

parks manager Al Hardy: “Only<br />

an approved contractor for monumental<br />

work may undertake work<br />

associated with any monument<br />

(including concrete kerbing or<br />

covering) in a council cemetery.”<br />

Said Mrs King: “I didn’t know<br />

that we had great grandparents<br />

at Bromley Cemetery so we went<br />

and had a look and the grave was<br />

disgusting. It had all fallen over,<br />

the headstone was off, there had<br />

been nothing done to it.<br />

“They [the city council] won’t<br />

let us tidy that grave and yet it’s<br />

e3 : economy<br />

a disgrace, that whole cemetery,”<br />

she said.<br />

One of Mrs King’s relatives’<br />

headstones has fallen on its face<br />

and the family wants to prop<br />

it up again so people can see<br />

the name on it. Mrs King said<br />

they’ve been told this also has<br />

to be done by a city councilapproved<br />

contractor.<br />

Mrs King believes families<br />

of people buried at the cemetery<br />

should be able to fix the graves of<br />

Conditions apply<br />

UNFAIR: Lynette<br />

their loved ones themselves.<br />

“These are family members.<br />

These people came from Ireland,<br />

came over on a boat . . . started<br />

businesses, they had 12 children.<br />

They have to be respected. If I<br />

had a grave and it was in that<br />

sort of repair I’d be disappointed<br />

in my family that they didn’t<br />

at least tidy it up and make it<br />

respectable so people could read<br />

who they were in that grave.<br />

That’s all we want.”<br />

GRASSMERE ST CLOSURE<br />

The Grassmere St and Main<br />

North Rd intersection is now<br />

closed between 7am and 6pm<br />

until March 23. Traffic signals<br />

for vehicles and pedestrians<br />

will be installed as part of the<br />

Main North Rd Bus Priority<br />

Lane project. Works also include<br />

widening the road on Grassmere<br />

lane into Main North Rd.<br />

DRAFT PLAN FEEDBACK<br />

The Waipapa/Papanui-Innes<br />

Community Board draft plan<br />

for <strong>2020</strong>-2022 is now open for<br />

feedback. The plan outlines<br />

visions and priorities for the<br />

community and will guide<br />

decisions on local activities,<br />

projects and facilities over the<br />

next three years. Submissions<br />

close on March 2 via the city<br />

council website.<br />

CRANFORD ST WORKS<br />

Oxley Ave has closed at the<br />

Cranford St intersection until<br />

March 29 due to the installation<br />

of a new water pipe down<br />

Sherborne and Cranford Sts,<br />

along with road changes. This<br />

work will allow people to pass<br />

through the area, provide safe<br />

access to schools, and add safer<br />

walking and cycling routes due<br />

to additional traffic from the<br />

Christchurch Northern Corridor<br />

nearing completion.<br />

White lines ‘a waste of time’<br />

•From page 1<br />

Northlink, due to welcome<br />

Kmart on April 2, is expected<br />

to generate peak-hour traffic<br />

of close to 600 vehicle trips per<br />

hour when development is fully<br />

completed according to resource<br />

consents.<br />

Mr Williams wrote to the<br />

Waipapa/Papanui-Innes<br />

Community Board on behalf of<br />

residents in neighbouring units<br />

expressing their concerns.<br />

THis was due to an increased<br />

volume of cars and vans<br />

parking on Langdons Rd which<br />

were often parked too close to<br />

entranceways.<br />

Residents asked for the<br />

installation of yellow lines to<br />

prevent other vehicles from<br />

parking near driveways. After<br />

being informed by the council<br />

that potential yellow lines would<br />

not be possible, they have since<br />

installed white lines to remind<br />

drivers of where they can legally<br />

park.<br />

According to Mr Williams, the<br />

white lines have since faded and<br />

have largely been ignored calling<br />

it “a waste of time.”<br />

Said Mr Williams: “Last year,<br />

an elderly lady’s car was written<br />

off leaving the premises as she<br />

had a lack of vision leaving the<br />

driveway.”<br />

Since the initial concerns were<br />

raised, the city council “has<br />

made no contact with<br />

us whatsoever, they fobbed<br />

us off with no replies, no<br />

information and nothing was<br />

done.”<br />

Because the hazard was<br />

brought to the attention of<br />

the council, nearby residents<br />

believed they were obliged<br />

to eliminate or minimise the<br />

hazard before someone was<br />

seriously injured.<br />

Neighbour Craig Shirley says<br />

you have to poke the nose<br />

of your car beyond parked<br />

cars.<br />

“It’s like Russian roulette with<br />

a gun.’’<br />

Said Stephen Wright, city<br />

council traffic operations<br />

team leader: “White lines<br />

are occasionally painted on<br />

either side of an entranceway<br />

to highlight the 1m rule. Site<br />

investigations have shown that<br />

SLOAN<br />

one of the lines has faded away<br />

and a request will be made to get<br />

the line re-installed.”<br />

Otherwise, “stopping<br />

restrictions are not generally<br />

installed either side of residential<br />

driveways.”<br />

He said any vehicle parked<br />

within 1m of an entrance can<br />

be dealt with by enforcement<br />

agencies without the need for<br />

broken yellow lines.<br />

Said a city council<br />

spokesperson: “Traffic<br />

management was an important<br />

consideration in planning for the<br />

Northlink Shopping Centre. A<br />

resource consent was approved<br />

on the basis that changes to<br />

the traffic environment can be<br />

managed as required.<br />

“Once construction works<br />

are complete, council staff<br />

will monitor impacts on the<br />

roads.”<br />

Pupils encouraged to<br />

ride or walk to school<br />

SCHOOLS IN the north west<br />

are showing their support for<br />

combating climate change by<br />

taking part in Walk or Wheel to<br />

School Day on March 4.<br />

A number of schools will be<br />

participating, such as Harewood,<br />

Roydvale, Waimairi, Papanui and<br />

Belfast schools.<br />

The city council is encouraging<br />

families to leave their cars at<br />

home that day and walk, cycle,<br />

scoot or skate to school instead.<br />

Said city council transport operations<br />

manager Steffan Thomas:<br />

“Transport accounts for more<br />

than half of the city’s greenhouse<br />

gas emissions. If we can get people<br />

using their cars less and active<br />

modes of travel more, it could<br />

make a significant difference to<br />

our carbon footprint.”<br />

“It has been proven that active<br />

travel to school can increase<br />

children’s concentration by up to<br />

four hours. Studies also show that<br />

children who travel actively to<br />

school have better spatial awareness<br />

and more road sense than<br />

those who are driven.”<br />

“Walking or wheeling to school<br />

has environmental, financial and<br />

health benefits so we’re hoping<br />

that all schools in Christchurch<br />

will support this initiative. If<br />

it does not suit schools to do<br />

Young track cyclist on the road to Cairo<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

AT THE beginning of 2019<br />

Charlotte Spurway made a bold<br />

decision to give track cycling a<br />

go.<br />

One year later, the year 13<br />

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School student<br />

has been selected in the<br />

13-strong New Zealand track cycling<br />

team for the world championships<br />

in Egypt in August.<br />

This is the first time the UCI<br />

junior track world championships<br />

will be held in the Middle<br />

East at the newly-constructed<br />

velodrome in Cairo.<br />

The 16-year-old said it all happened<br />

“pretty quickly,” but was<br />

excited for the new challenge<br />

ahead.<br />

“I was so excited when I found<br />

out, especially being able to work<br />

with the team over the year coming.<br />

We all get on really well,”<br />

she said.<br />

“It will definitely be a new experience<br />

for all of us, and probably<br />

the first time we’ll all ride<br />

our bikes in a place like that.”<br />

Charlotte has always had an<br />

avid interest in sports, coming<br />

from a family that loved to<br />

travel, surf and dive.<br />

She moved to Christchurch<br />

nine years ago, originally from<br />

Brisbane.<br />

“I’ve done sport for as long as<br />

I can remember, it’s just been<br />

a part of me. And then when I<br />

came to Rangi in year 9 I started<br />

school cycling,” said Charlotte.<br />

“I starting doing weekly racing<br />

and I just love the sport, there’s a<br />

really cool community in it. And<br />

then in the beginning of last year<br />

I decided to try out track cycling<br />

and since then it’s brought me to<br />

where I am today.”<br />

Charlotte was one of six<br />

Cantabrians to make the team<br />

with Jenna Borthwick (Lincoln<br />

High School), Mikaela Grant<br />

(Villa Maria), Laurence Pithie<br />

(ex-Christchurch Boys’ High<br />

School), Ryan McLeod (CBHS),<br />

and Sebastian Lipp (Catholic<br />

Cathedral College) also selected<br />

based on excellent performances<br />

at Oceania championships in<br />

October and New Zealand<br />

championships last month.<br />

Said Charlotte: “It’s really cool<br />

that six of us are Cantabrians,<br />

especially when we’ve only got<br />

an outdoor, concrete track here<br />

CAIRO BOUND: Year 13 Rangi Ruru student Charlotte<br />

Spurway will represent NZ at the track cycling team world<br />

championships in Cairo.<br />

in Christchurch compared to<br />

other places with indoor centres.”<br />

Denton Park Oval is the city’s<br />

only velodrome. In New Zealand<br />

there are two indoor velodromes<br />

located in Invercargill and<br />

Cambridge. Plans of an indoor<br />

centre for Christchurch have<br />

been discussed for years, but to<br />

no avail.<br />

“I can’t imagine what Canterbury<br />

can achieve if we get an<br />

indoor velodrome.”<br />

Charlotte trains 13 hours a<br />

week, while juggling school<br />

work, having a social life and<br />

other responsibilities and<br />

obligations, but she does not let<br />

the pressure get to her.<br />

“I think it’s quite manageable.<br />

We’ve all got time in our day<br />

as long as you’re getting down<br />

and doing it as soon as you can<br />

and staying on task, especially<br />

with the hours you’re given at<br />

school.”<br />

The young cyclist hopes to join<br />

the elite programme after high<br />

school and has the potential to<br />

head to worlds again in 2021<br />

while still being an U19 rider.<br />

But in the meantime, more hard<br />

work is in store.<br />

“Remembering your support<br />

network is always really<br />

important. I couldn’t have got<br />

to where I am today without<br />

the support of my family,<br />

friends, the Christchurch school<br />

cycling and Canterbury track<br />

communities,’’ Charlotte said.<br />

Awards recognised the students<br />

who achieved the highest mark<br />

in their subject out of all students<br />

who sat the scholarship exam.<br />

Rangi Ruru’s assistant principal<br />

Juliet Collins said the awards<br />

were regarded among the most<br />

prestigious secondary school<br />

academic awards in the country.<br />

“Topping New Zealand in<br />

these subjects is a tremendous<br />

tribute to the commitment and<br />

dedication of the girls and their<br />

teachers,” she said.<br />

“At Rangi Ruru, we encourage<br />

all of our girls to do the very<br />

best they can in anything they<br />

try, and these two have certainly<br />

done that.”<br />

Sarah also achieved Outstanding<br />

Performance Scholarships in<br />

Music and English, along with<br />

Coriander’s<br />

in liquidation<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

A RESTAURANT owner facing<br />

worker exploitation charges has<br />

had four of his businesses put into<br />

liquidation.<br />

Last month it was revealed<br />

Coriander’s Ethnic Indian Restaurants<br />

owner Amar Deep Singh<br />

is facing charges of exploiting<br />

his workers, whom the Labour<br />

Inspectorate concluded were<br />

systematically underpaid and<br />

abused.<br />

Last week, four businesses<br />

under Singh’s name were put into<br />

liquidation by Inland Revenue.<br />

These are Coriander’s Ltd, Jeet<br />

Holdings Ltd, Jeet Holdings No 2<br />

Ltd and Jeet Holdings No 8 Ltd.<br />

The application is due to be<br />

heard in the High Court at<br />

Christchurch on March 5. Coriander’s<br />

restaurants have operated<br />

in the wider Christchurch area for<br />

the past 12 years, with three restaurants<br />

currently operating – one<br />

in the central city, one in Upper<br />

Riccarton and one in Rolleston.<br />

In relation to the worker exploitation<br />

charges, the Inspectorate is<br />

seeking recovery of pay, a declaration<br />

of breach, penalties and a<br />

banning order.<br />

The charges against Singh<br />

are scheduled to be heard in<br />

the Employment Court in<br />

Christchurch on May 19 and 20.<br />

The restaurants are still open.<br />

Experienced physiotherapists caring<br />

for the St Albans community<br />

ProPhysio opened its doors to the<br />

St Albans and Edgeware community<br />

in 2014.<br />

Offering over 40 years of combined<br />

physiotherapy experience, directors<br />

Megan Williams and Scott Suen strive<br />

to provide a high-quality, affordable<br />

and professional service.<br />

They specialise in treating sporting<br />

injuries, and are also passionate<br />

about looking after people that are<br />

suffering from general muscular<br />

pain, fractures, or spinal conditions,<br />

or recovering from orthopaedic<br />

operations.<br />

The ProPhysio clinic is situated<br />

within the ProMed building<br />

on Sherborne Street, where the<br />

physiotherapists work closely with the<br />

team at the medical centre, enabling<br />

them to streamline physiotherapy<br />

care for their clients with easier<br />

diagnosis and specialist referral<br />

within the same building.<br />

“We believe that giving our clients<br />

the best possible understanding of<br />

their injury will give them the best<br />

possible outcome,” Megan and Scott<br />

say.<br />

“We pride ourselves in providing<br />

quality treatment, and the modern<br />

facilities and technology at ProPhysio<br />

enable us to do just this.”<br />

They also pride themselves in<br />

taking the time to listen to their<br />

clients’ stories, which ensures there is<br />

no information missed, and accurate,<br />

quality treatment can be provided.<br />

Megan and Scott believe in keeping<br />

treatment affordable.<br />

“We often hear the cost of<br />

physiotherapy treatment is a big<br />

barrier to people seeking the help<br />

they really need, but we have kept<br />

the same reasonable and affordable<br />

pricing since 2014,” Scott says.<br />

Their advice is, don’t leave those<br />

injuries from tidying up the garden,<br />

or those niggling aches and pains<br />

unchecked. Pop down to see the<br />

friendly and experienced staff at<br />

ProPhysio, who will make sure you<br />

SILVERSTREAM HEALTH HUB<br />

Friendly service ... Pharmacy technician Sophie Light,<br />

left, and pharmacist Elena Rimbovska.<br />

Welcoming ... Silverstream Medical Centre offers a<br />

comprehensive health service for patientsatall stagesoflife.<br />

Wide skill base ... Physiotherapist Teresa Hoult demonstrates<br />

hands­ontreatment on colleagueBrittany Peacock.<br />

Hub offers diverse health services<br />

Awide range of health and<br />

wellness services in a<br />

convenient one­stop location<br />

caters not only for residents of<br />

the Silverstream subdivision<br />

where it is located, but also for<br />

people in Kaiapoi and<br />

surrounding areas, including<br />

Christchurch’s northern<br />

suburbs.<br />

At the heart of this ‘‘health<br />

hub’’ is the Silverstream<br />

Medical Centre, which provides<br />

comprehensive health services<br />

for patients at all stages of life.<br />

The skilled team of four<br />

doctors comprises Dr Amrit<br />

Riat, who has recently joined<br />

the practice from Britain, Dr<br />

Don Ponnamperuma, Dr<br />

George Dehn and Dr Beth<br />

Shore.<br />

Dr Riat brings with her a<br />

wide range of experience and<br />

knowledge, while Dr Shore also<br />

holds adiploma in child health<br />

so particularly enjoys working<br />

with children and families.<br />

With two female doctors,<br />

women’s health is afocus for<br />

the centre.<br />

They offer full women’s<br />

health checks at $80 for the<br />

45­minute appointment, as well<br />

as family planning and<br />

contraception.<br />

Dr Dehn and Dr<br />

Ponnamperuma both have a<br />

special interest in<br />

musculoskeletal medicine and<br />

are experienced in treating the<br />

aches and pains that can affect<br />

muscles, bones and joints as we<br />

age, or through injuries<br />

sustained at work or playing<br />

sport.<br />

The Silverstream Medical<br />

Centre, established in<br />

September 2018, is fresh, bright<br />

and welcoming, with a<br />

comfortable waiting area, while<br />

the friendly doctors, nurses and<br />

administration staff ensure<br />

everyone feels at ease.<br />

The centre welcomes new<br />

patients, with doctor visits free<br />

for under­14s. Prescriptions<br />

can be requested and<br />

appointments booked through<br />

its website.<br />

Adjacent to the medical<br />

centre is the Silverstream<br />

Kaiapoi Pharmacy, offering a<br />

full range of pharmaceutical<br />

services.<br />

Pharmacists Elena<br />

Rimbovska and Georgia<br />

McLean, who own and operate<br />

the pharmacy, see their role as<br />

one of the “puzzle pieces” in<br />

the integrated health care of<br />

customers.<br />

Working in conjunction with<br />

the customer’s doctor, they<br />

focus on optimising medicines<br />

for maximum benefit, by<br />

advising customers on the best<br />

way and best times to take<br />

them.<br />

For those who take multiple<br />

medications, or who don’t feel<br />

like they are getting the most<br />

from their medication, afree<br />

medicine review with a<br />

pharmacist can be especially<br />

helpful, Elena says.<br />

“Managing medicines can be<br />

quite overwhelming so we<br />

encourage patients or family<br />

members to talk to us if they<br />

have any issues or questions,<br />

and make the most of their local<br />

pharmacy.”<br />

Listening to patients’<br />

concerns is important for the<br />

pharmacists, and as experts in<br />

medicine they are able to<br />

provide afull counselling<br />

service, with aprivate<br />

consultation room available.<br />

They also provide wound<br />

care and dressing, and will<br />

recommend other<br />

professionals if more<br />

specialised treatment is<br />

required.<br />

Both pharmacists say<br />

supplements are now being<br />

incorporated as part of a<br />

healthy lifestyle, with more<br />

people taking them.<br />

“It’s great to see that people<br />

are becoming interested in<br />

natural health to prevent<br />

health conditions, and age<br />

well,” Elena says.<br />

Total Health Physio &<br />

Podiatry, located on the other<br />

side of the medical centre,<br />

specialises in manual, handson<br />

physiotherapy and exercise<br />

rehabilitation for clients of all<br />

ages.<br />

There are three senior­level<br />

qualified physiotherapists on<br />

the staff –Teresa Hoult,<br />

Brigette Higinbottom and<br />

Brittany Peacock.<br />

“Having three<br />

physiotherapists means we<br />

have adiverse skill base,”<br />

Teresa says.<br />

Joint mobilisation and soft<br />

tissue massage are applied to<br />

help patients return to full<br />

fitness after surgery or injury,<br />

with exercise­based<br />

rehabilitation an important<br />

part of the process.<br />

Treatment is tailored to suit<br />

the individual patient’s needs<br />

and sessions last for afull halfhour,<br />

allowing the physiotherapist<br />

to spend time with the<br />

patient, which Teresa believes<br />

is very important.<br />

“Close working relationships<br />

with the Silverstream Medical<br />

Centre and the pharmacy, plus<br />

specialists, means we can<br />

ensure client management is<br />

maximised,” she says.<br />

Acupuncture treatment is<br />

also available.<br />

Podiatry services are offered<br />

at the clinic every Monday and<br />

Wednesday by qualified<br />

podiatrist Corrie Hoult.<br />

He provides general foot<br />

care, including minor surgery,<br />

and also makes orthotics, which<br />

are specifically tailored to<br />

individual needs.<br />

Triton Audiology services are<br />

available on Thursdays at the<br />

clinic, with the audiologist and<br />

ear nurse alternating<br />

fortnightly. Free hearing tests<br />

and ear wax removal is<br />

In your<br />

neighbourhood<br />

Your money, your<br />

home, your choice<br />

These days, it’s all too easy to feel as<br />

though we are just a number when we<br />

work with the banks. Kim at Mylend<br />

understands, and wants to make sure<br />

that her clients are treated as individuals<br />

with tailored finance packages that suit<br />

them, their situation and their future.<br />

Having previously worked with one of<br />

the major banks, and real estate firms,<br />

Kim’s background enables her to have full<br />

knowledge of all transactions to do with<br />

home lending.<br />

Mylend’s founder Kim Laurenson<br />

has longstanding relationships with all<br />

the banks across Canterbury and she<br />

can negotiate on your behalf to get the<br />

very best deal for you – better still, the<br />

banks pay for this service, it’s free for the<br />

customer. She does her best to demystify<br />

the jargon and make the process as<br />

simple and straightforward as possible.<br />

She appreciates that as a customer of the<br />

banks, you have choices, and she believes<br />

in finding solutions that best match your<br />

needs. “It’s not a one-size-fits all,” she says.<br />

Whether it is your first home or you are<br />

refinancing, Kim knows that “it’s your<br />

money, your home, and your needs that<br />

should be considered.” She will help you<br />

find out if what the bank is offering is right<br />

for you, or whether something else would<br />

work better.<br />

With over a decade of financial<br />

experience, and ably supported by<br />

Operations Manager Georgina Bell, Kim<br />

has a thorough knowledge of our local<br />

banks’ processes and options. Buying<br />

your first home, moving house or simply<br />

refinancing to take advantage of the<br />

current interest rates can be complicated.<br />

Kim is there to ensure arranging finance is<br />

as stress-free as possible.<br />

Kim is completely impartial and<br />

independent and she will talk you through<br />

your options, and help you make a sensible<br />

and informed decision. Kim explains that<br />

with interest rates as low as 3.39% fixed<br />

for one year, this is a wonderful time to<br />

refix your lending and use the rates to your<br />

advantage. She will sit with you and help<br />

you to maximise the repayments to the<br />

bank, so your lending is paid off faster.<br />

With so much experience, the Mylend<br />

team find most of their clients are<br />

returning customers or are referred to<br />

them by word-of-mouth. They trust Kim’s<br />

advice and know that she and Georgina<br />

are there to help them navigate lending for<br />

long-term financial success.<br />

BISHOPDALE’S KRIS Wilder<br />

has had a whirlwind code-hop to<br />

Australian Rules.<br />

After being encouraged by a<br />

friend to try the sport last year<br />

to improve his rugby fitness, the<br />

27-year-old played five games<br />

for the University Cougars in<br />

Christchurch and was then<br />

selected in the New Zealand AFL<br />

draft in November.<br />

He has played two games for<br />

the Western Crows in the national<br />

competition in Auckland, playing<br />

full-forward and kicking six goals.<br />

The four team competition<br />

sees Wilder travel to North Harbour<br />

Stadium each weekend for<br />

the 10-week competition.<br />

“I played five games for the<br />

Canterbury University Cougars<br />

and obviously did enough to be<br />

on the radar for the draft.<br />

“It cost $600 to enter it but if<br />

you get drafted that covers your<br />

10 weeks of flights to Auckland<br />

and your meals, kit, warm-ups<br />

and ice baths etc.<br />

“It’s quite professional in that<br />

sense, it’s like the Mitre 10 Cup<br />

NEW<br />

CHALLENGE:<br />

Bishopdale’s<br />

Kris Wilder<br />

is playing for<br />

the Western<br />

Crows in<br />

the New<br />

Zealand AFL<br />

competition at<br />

North Harbour<br />

Stadium each<br />

weekend for<br />

the next 10<br />

weeks.<br />

Code-hopping<br />

success for Wilder<br />

in rugby, that’s the best way I can<br />

describe it.”<br />

In 2018 the average Australian<br />

AFL player earned A$369,000<br />

(NZ$385,000) but Wilder said<br />

going professional was a longshot,<br />

not only for him but most<br />

of the New Zealand players.<br />

“My goal is to make the New<br />

Zealand Academy team at the<br />

end of the season because there<br />

will be an Aussie team that will<br />

tour here and I’d like to test myself<br />

against them,” he said.<br />

“The difference in standard<br />

here compared to Australia is<br />

huge – Aussie kids smash us and<br />

I don’t think it will be about the<br />

money for me at this point.”<br />

He said he planned to play senior<br />

rugby this season and bring<br />

up 100 games for the Lincoln<br />

premier team.<br />

“This has taken me a lot<br />

further than I thought it would<br />

considering I just wanted to do it<br />

to be a fitter, better rugby player.<br />

“It is a fast game with a<br />

lot of running and a heap of<br />

athleticism and I’m keen to just<br />

see where I end up with it.”

One-pot wonders to keep the summer vibe going<br />

• By Ian Knott<br />

With the recent resurgence<br />

of warmer temperatures<br />

there’s no need to<br />

prematurely put the<br />

outdoor furniture away just<br />

yet. Keep that summer vibe<br />

going with these crowdpleasing<br />

one-pot wonders<br />

Slow-cooker pulled pork<br />

Serves 6<br />

Ingredients<br />

To serve<br />

Soft white rolls<br />

Coleslaw<br />

Sliced red onions<br />

Sliced gherkins<br />

Directions<br />

Heat the slow cooker to high.<br />

Put the onions in the bottom of<br />

the slow cooker.<br />

Mix together the spices, salts,<br />

mustard, vinegar, tomato purée<br />

and sugar. Rub all over the pork<br />

then sit on top of the onions.<br />

Cook for 8 hours. Remove the<br />

pork and shred into chunks. Mix<br />

in 4-5 Tbsp of cooking liquid<br />

from the slow cooker.<br />

Serve in buns with coleslaw,<br />

sliced red onions and gherkins, if<br />

you like.<br />

Halloumi and vegetable<br />

tray-bake<br />

Ingredients<br />

4 courgettes, cut into small<br />

chunks<br />

1 red onion, cut into slim wedges<br />

3 large garlic cloves, skins left on<br />

3 Tbsp olive oil<br />

300g cherry tomatoes<br />

<strong>25</strong>0g halloumi, sliced<br />

To serve<br />

Directions<br />

Heat the oven to 200 deg C/180<br />

oil and tip into a large, shallow<br />

baking dish. Season well and<br />

roast for 10min.<br />

Stir in the cherry tomatoes<br />

and sit the halloumi slices on<br />

top. Sprinkle over the cumin<br />

seeds and chilli flakes, if using.<br />

Cook for another 15min until the<br />

tomatoes start to burst and release<br />

juice, and the halloumi is turning<br />

golden.<br />

Squeeze the garlic cloves out<br />

of their skins and mash into the<br />

oil and juices in the baking dish,<br />

stirring it in. Spoon everything<br />
