Darryl’s fight to the end

Plastering

job takes

its toll

on lungs

• By Barry Clarke

WELL-KNOWN Canterbury

sports figure Darryl Hawker had

hoped to get one more week to

prove his body wrong.

But yesterday morning, doctors

at Christchurch Hospital told him

and partner Rose Williams, his

lungs had effectively given up.

There was no more hope.

He was put on a morphine

pump to ease the pain he had been

enduring.

“It will let him pass away without

pain,” Rose told The Star yesterday

afternoon.

“It’s very, very sad.”

Hawker, 64, suffered from hypersensitivity

pneumonitis, an inflammation

of the air spaces within the

lung caused by hypersensitivity to

inhaled organic dusts.

He says it was caused by years

working as a plasterer.

On Tuesday night, Hawker had

convinced his doctors not to start

the morphine pump which would

signal the end.

IN SPITE of a cold and dreary

At night she transforms into

a comedian developed from how

she imagines her children view

and thinking she is cool.

Prendergast, 51, only took

up comedy three years ago and

during that time has become one

of Christchurch’s most accomplished

performers.

“I have been a performer since

I was a child but decided to go to

medical school rather than drama

school. A comedy producer

suggested I try stand-up comedy

when I was acting in a TV show

pilot a few years ago,” she said.

“I like a challenge so I gave it

a go and haven’t stopped since.

It’s an amazing feeling to have

a room of people having a great

time and laughing at your jokes.”

During lockdown she finished

writing her debut solo show

The Cool Mum, which she will

perform tomorrow night at Little

Andromeda Theatre in the

central city.

Women’s Refuge will receive

25 per cent of the ticket sales for

The show is a parody of a

celebrity parenting seminar

focusing on her own parenting

experiences.

“My teenagers both perform

show, along with some of their

friends. My kids and other young

people seem to particularly enjoy

my comedy as it’s very relatable

to them. If my 16-year-old son

‘No, no I’m fighting. Give me a chance’

• From page 1

“He asked for another week.

He’s trying to fight. That’s Darryl.

But his lungs are absolutely

buggered,” Rose told The Star on

Tuesday night.

“We’re hoping something

might pop up. Miracles do happen,”

she said.

On Monday, Hawker was

told by doctors they had done

everything they could for him

and the outlook was grim in the

extreme.

Said Rose: “Basically he is suffocating

alive. His lungs are like

a drying sponge.”

But Hawker refused to accept

what the doctors had to say.

“No, no I’m fighting. Give me

a chance. Don’t give up on me.

I’m fighting,” he told them.

But yesterday morning

brought the inevitable. There

would be no miracle. Hawker’s

condition had deteriorated, the

scarred lungs had had enough.

Hawker was a top rugby

league player in his day, a champion

amateur wrestler and lawn

bowler and Canterbury bowls

selector.

He was part of the grand

final-winning Halswell league

sides during the 1980s and later

became a top referee. He was an

uncompromising defender and

great team man during a great

era of club league in Canterbury.

He was in a four which was

third equal twice at a New Zealand

bowls championships, he

got to the last eight once in the

pairs and claimed two national

bowls titles as a coach. He was

also a Canterbury selector.

But was most satisfying for

Hawker was giving back to

sport.

“Looking after the school kids

and teaching them,” he told The

Star.

Said Rose: “The game was

very good to him and he always

wanted to put back into the

game.”

He was a rugby league match

manager, which meant getting

up early to ready the fields for

matches.

The first hint something was

wrong with his lungs came three

years ago when returned from a

trip to Hong Kong. Hawker put

it down to something he had

picked up on the plane.

“Darryl being Darryl” he

didn’t go to the doctor.

HEY DAY:

The Halswell

premier team

which won

the 1985 Pat

Smith Trophy

grand final.

Darryl Hawker

is circled.

Right -

Hawker in

2008.

“He couldn’t get rid of the

cough. You could see he was getting

breathless playing bowls,”

said Rose.

He got progressively worse and

it became apparent he would

need a lung transplant. He was

put on steroids and blood thinners.

The lung transplant would

never come.

He and Rose were also battling

the Accident Compensation

Corporation.

His specialist told him in

mid-March he needed to stop

working as his oxygen levels

were too low.

But ACC refused to accept his

claim, in spite of medical advice

and Hawker’s employer saying

he could not work.

In late March, ACC made a

final decision his claim would

not be accepted.

This week as Hawker lay in

his hospital bed another letter

arrived at his home from ACC,

reinforcing its earlier decision.

Said Rose: “Darryl feels like

he has been kicked in the guts,

they’ve (ACC) put him in the too

hard basket. He said: ‘They don’t

seem to care if I die’.

“He’s paid his taxes, paid his

levies, never been on a benefit.”

Heartfelt speech

Darryl Hawker made an appearance at his Halswell

Bowls Club prizegiving on June 20. Friend and fellow

bowler Ron Matheson read out this speech in his behalf

The reason we won three titles this season is not

because we were not the best team. You can have the

four best bowlers in the the club playing with each

other and most times you will win.

But if you are not compatible on and off the green

then you will struggle.

You need to work together, and this showed for us this

season.

At times we have all struggled, but we talked to each

other and offered encouragement to play the shoot.

We have worked the same with the Canterbury men’s

team and that is why we have won two intercentre titles

and a runner-up in the last four years.

There are a lot of new exciting bowlers that have

joined the club this season, think about them when you

are picking your team for the new season.

Winning club champs is great, but if you can help a

new bowler to achieve then you are a winner to.

For me personally I get a lot of reward by helping

others achieve their goals, this can be the greatest

reward.

PART OF the new $16m

Redcliffs School has been built in

breach of a condition set out in

the District Plan.

The Beachville Rd campus reopened

last Monday after a nineyear-long

journey to rebuild the

school, which was demolished

at its former Main Rd site following

the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

But behind the scenes, there

have been issues over a breach of

boundary conditions, a report

has revealed.

Under the District Plan, a

rule states no part of a building

should project beyond a building

envelope contained by a recession

plane.

It is to prevent effects on

adjoining properties, and

in this case, the building’s

height has proven impacts

on daylight and sunlight

into the section at 19 Main

Rd.

Friends of Redcliffs Park

spokesman Chris Doudney,

who was strongly

opposed to the new school being

built at the Beachville Rd site,

has read the report identifying

the breach.

He said the breach “really

confirms what an unsuitable

site” Redcliffs Park was for a new

school.

Mr Doudney petitioned for the

school to be built at the former

site in 2018 but was unsuccessful.

Minister of Education Chris

Hipkins has applied to “regularise”

the breach, which will be

heard by the Resource

Management Act Hearings

Panel tomorrow.

The owner of 19 Main

Rd, an empty section

neighbouring the school,

complained to the city

council about the height

of the building last year.

A city council spokesperson

said it was then identified

the recession plane angle was

incorrectly drawn on plans by

Tennent Brown Architects following

a review of the consent

documentation in October.

There have been ongoing discussions

between the architect

and the neighbours which didn’t

resolve the matter. Subsequently,

an application was made to alter

the designation.”

“If the application is declined,

there is a right of appeal to

the Environment Court.

Alternatively, the southern

part of the building could be

modified.”

Ministry of Education’s head

of education infrastructure service

Kim Shannon said when the

breach was discovered, the main

superstructure of the building

had already been built.

She said the ministry received

expert advice the breach was

likely to have only a minor effect

on the vacant section.

A Tennent Brown Architects

spokesperson said it is “not in a

position to comment with the

hearing pending.”

Borrowing

boost for

council

THE CITY council has received a

significant boost as it battles with

the financial fall out from Covid-19.

The Local Government Funding

Agency which finances council’s

across the country has increased

the amount which local authorities

can borrow.

This will allow the city council

to increase its debt in order to

make up for lost revenue incurred

from the Covid-19 crisis.

The agreement means councils,

like the Christchurch City Council,

with a long-term credit rating

of “A” or higher can increase their

borrowing ratio of 250 per cent

net debt to revenue to 300 per cent

until 2022.

The pandemic left the city

council with a $99 million

revenue shortfall.

The city council is already

planning to borrow $102 million

over the coming years in its draft

Annual Plan as it braces itself for

a series of reduced dividends from

its trading company Christchurch

City Holdings Ltd.

It is proposing to borrow $33

million to cover the predicted

loss of dividend and also revenue

in the previous financial year.

A further $47 million for the

current year and an additional

$22 million in the next.

hours of the morning.

This has been the reality for

Rona Clayton and her neighbours,

who live in a block of

units next door to Light of all

The church is on the former

Hoon Hay Club site.

Mrs Clayton said nothing has

her neighbours complaining to

the city council about 20 times

combined, asking the church’s

landlord Marilyn Paston to

address the issue and sending

a petition with 16 signatures to

Wigram MP Megan Woods.

A spokeswoman for Dr Woods

said the petition has been

received and she is aware of the

neighbours’ concerns.

The city council was unable to

provide details on the number of

noise complaints the church has

received in time yesterday.

Light of all Nations senior

apostle Peter Emadi could not be

“You’re entitled to a first warning,

a second warning, but a

She said on any day of the

week, particularly Fridays and

weekends, noise can start in the

morning or in the evening and

not finish until after midnight.

“I usually go to bed about

midnight and that’s when, if I’m

there [home], I hear that,” she

said.

On August 10 last year, she

said the noise did not stop until

BOREDOM, relaxation and

stress are the key reasons

drinking has increased during

the Covid-19 pandemic.

A survey has revealed 24 per

cent of 25 to 49-year-olds have

been drinking

more than

usual since

alert level 4

began, with

the highest

proportion of

daily drinkers

being those

aged over 65.

This is why

the Christchurch

Alcohol

Action Plan has been created by

the Canterbury District Health

Board, police and the city council.

The plan will focus on reducing

alcohol harm across the

community.

A CDHB spokesperson said

more New Zealanders have

reported daily drinking since the

lockdown.

“One-in-five survey participants

reported experiencing

harm due to someone else’s

drinking while in lockdown,” the

said.

Christchurch clinical psychologist

Simon Adamson said

he has spoken to people who

were drinking more as a result of

thing,” he said.

However, Dr Adamson said

since alert level 4 began, the

number of patients he has spoken

to struggling with drinking

problems has not increased compared

to pre-Covid-19 levels.

He supports the CAAP.

“I think any public health

activity that addresses alcoholrelated

harm is welcome. We

have a substantial drinking

problem within New Zealand

culture.”

CAAP is co-funded by the

Health Promotion Agency and

will target non-regulated drinking

environments and work with

a range of organisations and

groups to do so.

Said CAAP’s co-ordinator

Hayley Edgerton: “While some

members of the community

reported a reduction in alcohol

use during lockdown, according

to an HPA study one in five individuals

reported increased levels

of alcohol use – often with the

justification that it helped them

to relax or switch off.

There is real concern that

these behaviours will continue

or increase – especially with

post-lockdown easier access to

alcohol and its accepted status as

a drug of choice for many,” she

said.

Just after the lockdown started

in late March, there were 72 family

harm events, a big spike from

the about 30 reported to police

on an average day.

The number of events dropped

to 42 the next day and has

remained at about this number

since.

Said Detective Senior Sergeant

Neville Jenkins: “What we do

know is that [in] a high proportion

of the family harm events

alcohol is a factor.”

He said this has been the

case throughout the Covid-19

pandemic.

921 union

submissions

call for zero per

cent rates rise

• By Louis Day

MORE THAN 900 submissions

calling for a zero per cent rates

rise have been sent to the city

council.

The New Zealand Taxpayers’

Union handed a total of 1371

responses it received from its

own consultation with ratepayers

to the city council regarding its

proposed overall rates increase of

3.5 per cent.

Sixty-seven per cent of respondents

to the union’s consultation

document stated they wanted

a zero per cent rates increase,

which amounted to a total of

921 submissions. Two per cent of

respondents to the union wanted

to see a rates rise.

City council did not submit

a zero per cent rates increase as

a preferred option in this year’s

draft Annual Plan.

City council staff have stated the

$122 million in savings needed

to achieve no rise in rates would

have “severe impacts” on council

services and lead to an “unprecedented

level of staff redundancy.”

Consultation on the draft

Annual Plan closed on Monday

and councillors will sign off on

a final plan by the end of this

Witness: Keep gunman interview private

THE ROYAL Commission into

the events leading up to the

shooting dead of 51 Muslim

worshippers has revealed it has

talked to the gunman, leading to

calls by some for the interview to

be released for all to see.

A witness to the March 15

mosque attacks says an interview

with the shooter should not be

made public.

Yama Nabi was running late

for prayers on March 15 and

avoided the gunman’s bullets, but

he witnessed

the horrific

aftermath at

the Al Noor

mosque where

his father Haji-

Daoud Nabi

was one of the

Yama Nabi

first to be shot.

He believed

victims and

their families should definitely

be shown the interview with the

man responsible, but not the general

public, as there was too great

a risk that others may be inspired

by his words.

“We don’t want any harm to

come to any countries anywhere

you’re from, Hindu, Muslim,

Jewish. You know, we don’t want

these things happening around

the world.”

It was important when the

commission released its findings,

LESSONS: A witness to the March 15 mosque shootings has disagreed with calls to make

footage the gunman’s interview public.

PHOTO: GETTY

that lessons were learned that

prevented the same thing happening

again, he said.

“If somebody is applying for

a firearms licence, they should

not make the mistake again. You

always ask them the question:

‘What’s the reason you’re applying

for a firearm?’ If it’s [for]

hunting that’s a different story.

There should be a certain amount

of ammunition, not like give

them well over 1000 rounds.”

Muslim Association of Canterbury

general secretary Feroze

Ditta survived the Al Noor attack

after becoming trapped under a

pile of bodies.

He still carries shrapnel from

the gunman’s bullets in his leg.

Unlike Yama Nabi, he did

think the interview should be

made public at the same time as

the findings were released.

“It would be nice to know what

motivated him. Why, you know,

he did this and who was behind it

and just get to the bottom of what

actually happened and how he

managed to execute this.”

Another member of the

Christchurch muslim community,

Tony Green, agreed the interview

should be shared widely.

Otherwise we risked repeating

the mistakes of the past, he said.

“Just as we look at the genesis

of the Black Lives Matter movement

in the States, the genesis of

this goes back a long, long time.

There was the feeling that New

Zealand lived this somewhat

charmed existence, and that

therefore these distant things

could not impact on us and yet

these distant hatreds did come

here and impacted seriously.”

Strategic analyst and former

US Defence Department adviser,

Paul Buchanan, was among those

interviewed by the commission.

He said there was no way an

unedited version of the interview

would be released and that a

greater danger was that the

commission failed to hold the

police and security services to

account.

The shooter’s late guilty plea

meant there was a higher chance

of this happening, he said.

“What that did is it removed

the court. It removed the ability

to put, let’s say, for example, the

police officers under oath to ask

them what was done and not

done in the lead-up to this. His

defence attorneys won’t have the

opportunity to cross examine

members of the intelligence

community as well as the police.”

The commission’s findings

were due at the end of July.

The Muslim community in

Christchurch was hoping they

would shed some light on an act

many were still struggling to

come to terms with. – RNZ

Swiggs not ruling out return

• By Louis Day

EMBATTLED former city

councillor Deon Swiggs has not

ruled out a return to local body

politics following a potential

route to re-election opening up.

Sally Buck announced her resignation

from the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board due

to ill health at

the start of this

week.

A by-election

to fill the

vacancy she has

left as a community

board

Jake

member on the

board will now

be held later

this year and is estimated to cost

between $60,000 and $50,000.

Mr Swiggs, who was ousted in

last year’s local body elections

following allegations of sending

“grossly inappropriate” messages

to youths, told The Star he had

not ruled out running for the vacant

community board member

seat around the table he used to

occupy as a councillor.

“I would never rule anything

out, but as I have said I have not

thought too much about it,” he

said.

inappropriate messages to them.

Supporters of Mr Swiggs

lodged a petition in the district

court arguing the allegations

were released by the Canterbury

Youth Worker’s Collective in

order to sabotage his campaign.

They also argued Cr McLellan’s

campaign team had orchestrated

the allegations made against Mr

Swiggs, alleging Cr McLellan and

his team had a hand in the allegations

being leaked to media which

appeared in The Press on September

20, the same day voting papers

were sent out.

However, the accusation

against Cr McLellan and his

campaign team was dropped

during the closing submissions

of the trial. Judge Paul Kellar

also ruled there was insufficient

evidence to prove the accusations

against the Canterbury Youth

Worker’s Collective.

Mr Swiggs refused to comment

on the prospect of having to

sit on the same board as Cr

McLellan should he be elected to

fill Ms Buck’s seat.

“I’m not going to go into that.”

Cr McLellan said he had

no issues with the prospect of

potentially sharing a community

board table with Mr Swiggs.

“Well it’s democracy, I have no

animosity or hard feelings to Mr

Swiggs whatsoever and if he is

elected, he is elected,” he said.

Brave Lachie loses

long cancer battle

Lachie Sutherland

CHRISTCHURCH boy Lachie

Sutherland has lost his battle

with cancer.

The 12-year-old died at Nurse

Maude Hospice on Tuesday

after his second fight against

neuroblastoma, a rare form of

the disease which develops in

infants and young children.

A post to the family’s Facebook

page, TouchPauseEngage,

read: “It is with a heavy heart

that we post this evening to

share the news that Lachie

passed away. We are heartbroken

for our loss but deeply relieved

that Lachie is no longer suffering.”

Lachie was first diagnosed in

January 2012 and he flew to Sydney,

aged four, to receive MIGD

therapy.

His father, Chris Sutherland,

died from metastatic melanoma

in 2013, after being diagnosed a

month earlier.

Six years on, Lachie relapsed

with neuroblastoma in August

after showing no evidence of the

disease since 2013.

He spent the past five months

undergoing eight rounds of

chemotherapy and seven cycles

of immunotherapy and radiation.

Major fundraising was done

earlier this year to afford selffunded

MIGD therapy in Sydney,

which Lachie was scheduled

to receive in March.

However, he could not

undergo the treatment due to

Hosking no embarrassment

• By Louis Day

LINWOOD COLLEGE is not

embarrassed to have Mike

Hosking as one of its alumni.

This comes after former Mayor

Garry Moore said the high

school should be embarrassed to

have the broadcaster as one of its

graduates.

In Mr

Moore’s

newsletter for

his weekly

Tuesday Club,

a forum to

discuss local

issues, he

criticised

Garry Moore

the media

for how it

has “twisted and turned” over

whether the country should

reopen its borders and singled

out Hosking.

They [the media] were

screaming out for weeks that

borders should be opened

up. Then when two women

highlighted how vulnerable we

are if we are complacent the

media then screamed out in the

opposite direction. The worst of

them has to be Mike Hosking.

Linwood College should be

embarrassed that he was one of

their graduates,” he wrote.

While Hosking has been

heavily criticised for his general

coverage of the pandemic and

the Government’s response to it,

he has been relatively consistent

on whether or not the country

should reopen its border after

moving to alert level 1.

Even after two women

were let out of quarantine on

compassionate leave who later

tested positive for the virus last

month, Hosking wrote a column

expressing the fault rested

with authorities not properly

screening new arrivals, not with

the concept of reopening the

border.

Yesterday, another column

from Hosking emphasised the

need for a plan to re-open the

border.

“While we know that Mike is

Te Kura Tuarua o Horomaka

Hillmorton High School

Inspiring academic excellence, leadership, and a love of learning

From the Principal

“Role modelling is not the main thing in

influencing others, it is everything” Albert

Schweitzer.

Over the past two weeks I have had the absolute

pleasure of interviewing 30 of our Year 12

students who applied to have their leadership

recognised with a leadership blazer.

These young people impressed me with their

compassion, determination, openness and

their real commitment to ‘service leadership’.

They are all well involved in the wider life of the

school; playing sport, participating in The Arts

and cultural activities, and serving on various

committees. Many talked about how they help

their classmates with their learning in class

through encouragement and participating fully

themselves in all class activities.

Each has set a goal for each subject they take,

and these goals will really stretch them. They are

taking our motto of “Whaia te iti kahurangi’ ‘strive

for the utmost’ or ‘personal best nothing less’

seriously.

Each student has also set an attendance goal of

well over 90% and they have all had a careers

interview.

These students are leading by example, they

are living examples of our school values. Many

began at Hillmorton in Year 7 when just 10 or 11

years old. After 5½ years they have grown into

mature, open, considerate and giving teenagers

from diverse backgrounds. They make me very

proud of our school, our students, our staff and

our families who work alongside us to ensure that

our vision “with our communities, we nurture

well rounded and accomplished young people,

prepared and ready for life” becomes a reality.

Whaia te iti kahurangi, ki te tuohu koe me he

maunga teitei

“Seek that which is most precious, if you should

bow, let it be to a lofty mountain”.

Ann Brokenshire

Principal

International Success

I have been struck many

times over the past few

months how our students

and families have lived and

embodied our school values

of whanaunatanga and

turangawaewae.

With our growing realisation

of the magnitude of the global

pandemic earlier in the year,

many of our 40 international

students had to make a

challenging decision. They had to decide whether they would stay here in New

Zealand, or whether they would catch a flight to their home country before most

commercial flights were suspended indefinitely at the end of March.

Our short-term students who were due to leave all managed to get home, but 30

of our young people from around the world chose to call New Zealand home for

now and stay here with us.

Our host families showed a huge sense of whanaunatanga and cared for our

students during lockdown – we thank them so much for this. By providing a

home for our students, and by being supported by staff at school and within the

wider community, the students truly found turangawaewae – a place to belong

and a place to stand.

While our world has become a little smaller with our international borders

closed, we treasure and value the international students who are living and

studying alongside us.

Darryl Hawker one

heck of a good guy

From the

editor’s desk

Barry Clarke

IT’S WET, COLD and miserable

on Sunday morning as I walk

towards Christchurch Hospital. I

know the situation in a room in

ward 25 will be even bleaker.

Darryl Hawker, 64, is gravely ill

and only has days to live. It has all

happened fairly quickly.

His partner Rose called me on

Friday, saying he was keen to see

me.

She tells me he has a lung

disease caused by his work as a

plasterer. A lung transplant is now

not an option.

I’ve known Darryl since the

mid-80s when he was running

around as a loose forward for the

champion Halswell premier rugby

league side.

It was a great era of club league

with the legendary Halswell-

Hornby grand-finals and Hawker

was usually in the thick of the

action.

After his football career he

became a top line referee, and also

made his name in lawn bowls as a

player, coach and selector.

His background support of

schoolboy rugby league and

mentoring young bowlers over the

years was not headline stuff, but it

has been a major part of Darryl’s

sporting DNA.

I meet Rose and we go into his

room. He has hypersensitivity

pneumonitis, an inflammation of

the airspaces caused by hypersensitivity

to inhaled organic dusts.

He looks up from the chair he is

propped up in, clearly struggling

to breathe.

“Hi mate, it’s good to see ya,” I

say. Asking how he is just doesn’t

seem right.

“Would you like to swap,” he responds,

in his typical no-nonsense

straight to the point way.

“Not really,” I say.

We make some small talk, and

Rose’s cellphone keeps

going off, friends, former

teammates all wanting to

know how he is.

Bowling mate Ron

Matheson and his wife

Margaret have arrived, and

Canterbury Bulls coach

Darrell Coad pops in.

From his chair, Darryl

tries to talk to me, but it is

hard through the oxygen mask

and he takes it off.

A nurse comes in with morphine.

He drinks it quickly to keep

the pain at bay.

Rose says he developed a cough

about three years ago when he

returned from Hong Kong, which

he put down to something he had

picked up on the plane.

“Darryl being Darryl” he didn’t

go to the doctor.

Months later, Rose convinced

him to go to the doctor. It wasn’t

just a cough.

He had never worn a mask during

his 17 of years plastering and

this, she says, is why he is where he

is today.

She and Darryl have been battling

ACC which has refused to

accept his claim as work-related.

Medical evidence suggests differently.

That rankles with him. “He’s

paid his taxes, paid his levies,

never been on a benefit,” says

Rose.

We get back to talking

rugby league.

I ask Darryl what

his most memorable

game was. “The first

grand-final.” Halswell

beat Hornby 17-16 in

that memorable 1985

final, a feat which was

repeated two years later

with another one-point win over

Hornby (15-14), field goals by the

mercurial Phil Bancroft being the

difference between the sides.

“Who were your most respected

teammates?”

“All of them,” he says. I try to

get a little more out of him. “They

were all the same.”

“What about your opponents?”

They were all hard,” he gets out.

“Who was your most respected

opponent then?”

“Wayne Wallace,” he says

quickly. “A very good footballer.

He could read a game.”

Darryl is starting to run out of

breath.

I ask: “What are your personal

milestones?”

BETTER TIMES: Darryl Hawker with his 1985 grand finalwinning

jersey.

“Looking after the school kids

and teaching them,” he says.

Rose chips in: “The game

(league) to him was very good

and he wanted to put something

back into the game. That has

mattered most to him. He’s been a

match manager for rugby league.

He’d be up at 6am to set up the

fields.”

Darryl mentions he took up

amateur wrestling in his 20s,

winning Canterbury and South

Island titles and finishing third in

a New Zealand championship.

“Now I know when you tackled

someone they stayed pinned on

the ground,” I say.

He smiles from behind the

mask.

It’s getting time to go. How do

you say goodbye.

“We’ll mate I’d better get

going,” I say with a lump in my

throat.

In an instant out comes his

hand. I take it and we shake.

“Been a pleasure,” he muffles.

“See ya mate,’’ I reply and I

disappear.

It’s been great to know a true

servant to Canterbury sport.

•Darryl’s condition deteriorated

rapidly overnight Tuesday. He

was put on more morphine and

doctor’s began to sedate him

yesterday morning.

The recent lockdown has

been tough on everyone, what

was the toughest aspect for

Harrison/Bloy and its people?

How did you adapt?

As an essential service, our

branches provided contactless

pick-up and delivery for tradies.

Support and admin staff were

either working from home or

ready to do so in the final days

before lockdown. CCL’s remote

desktop services and support

ensured all systems ran smoothly

– other than a few bandwidth

issues which CCL helped us

through, we didn’t miss a beat.

The decision we made years ago

to architect our IT systems for

remote work proved a winner.

Now that lockdown has been

relaxed, are you expecting

to operate differently? What

aspects of your business do you

think will change permanently?

We continue to refine

workplace policies and

procedures to improve hygiene,

cleanliness, and personal health.

On the business side we must be

ready to adapt because markets

will change. There’s no point

panicking, as unknown impacts

are yet to play out. You can

choose to run scared – but that

just makes people nervous – or

get excited about rising to the

challenge.

What role does technology

play at Harrison/Bloy as you

adjust to the so-called new

been most helpful? Are you

using any new technology now?

that way doesn’t pose new

a heightened sense of security,

and on this front we’re rolling

out multi-factor authentication.

We’re also evaluating business

intelligence systems to measure

our performance and put

numbers to what we do well and

where we can improve.

Do you have a sense of

what the future looks like for

Harrison/Bloy?

While the pandemic up-ended

normality, low interest rates and

decisive Government action

sees New Zealand in a stronger

position than most other

countries. The wage subsidy

has made a huge difference to

the preservation of jobs and

market confidence. Next steps

will be challenging, because the

economy has taken a big hit and

will run on three cylinders for

some time. But we’re a resilient

bunch – we bounced backed

learned from this chapter in our

history?

We’ve heard a lot about

working from home, but less

about workplace culture. There’s

nothing better than having our

people back at work. Technology

is great and flexibility important,

but you need people around you

to build a strong culture. What’s

more, when you leave your

workplace at the day’s end you

leave your work behind. Whereas

when you work from home,

work is always there. It might

be good for employers, but it’s

harder on staff. The best answer

is somewhere in between.

Tree cutting

I am feeling very depressed at

the way the council and their

so called tree technicians are

cutting down trees in our once

“garden city.”

I’m afraid that name can no

longer be used. Seemingly, these

technicians identify trees that

are needing attention – and the

contractors set about their tasks.

I was upset and sickened viewing

the state of the once beautiful

and elegant weeping willow trees

in Park Tce. They have been

trimmed severely, like a fringe,

but only on one side so now they

weep towards the river as they

are meant to, but the street side

of the trees have been cut straight

across in the most unsympathetic

way. I assume these trees

had the temerity to weep their

fronds towards the path.

Shocking treatment of these

iconic trees, which have so much

fascinating history. The council

need to be held account for their

indiscriminate treatment of our

trees.

Just walk around the new river

walkway starting at Kilmore St/

Fitzgerald Ave and note how

many trees were sacrificed to lay

the path. Heaven help that they

could curve the path around the

existing, fully mature trees. So,

new path but little shade any

more. I used to walk around

there before it received the

“council treatment.”

The birds were prolific and the

ducks gathered underneath for

the shade and shelter.

I guess they will just have to do

without. – Sandra Shaw

We want to hear your views

on the issues affecting life

New stadium

When planning is under way

for the new stadium, maybe it

would be beneficial to make

an area with power supply that

could be rented out short term

for central city self-contained

campervan parking. It would

cost little to set up and patrol,

and would help cafes, restaurants,

theatre and retail shops.

It could be made available at

times when there were no main

events at the stadium.

At busy times, such an area

would have a myriad of uses.

– Philippa Lane

Readers respond to the

killer of Louisa Damodran,

Peter Joseph Holdem, who

was denied parole again

This case haunted me as a child

growing up in Christchurch in

the 80s. Don’t let this man out

ever. – Jean Murphy

Remember Louisa, she would

walk to school with us sometimes.

Such a beautiful little girl.

I’ll always remember her.

– Sharilee Macaskill

Leave the maggot to rot where

it is! – Stephen Dixon

Incomprehensible. I was so

frightened when this happened.

– Ann Judson

Will never forget this little girl

with her smiley face skipping

down the street prior to this,

such a scary time.

– Sonya Harris

Peter Joseph Holdem

I will never forget the day this

a hole took Louisa. I always think

about her when I am near the

Waimak, and frequently for no

reason what so ever this little girl

pops into my mind.

– Helen Fox

I remember this case well. I

was only 15 at the time but my

sister was 6, same age as Louisa.

The mothers of the children in

my sister’s class all called each

other up and most of the children

were then driven to school

or walked. – Nicky Griffith

I worked over the road from

where this girl was taken, the

whole factory was interviewed.

Everyone was upset for her. This

person should die behind bars,

her family have also had the life

sentence, this person should too.

Awful for her family, awful for

police working on the case.

– Allison Grant

Lived next door to Louisa, her

brother and parents. A lovely

family. Louisa always said hello

and had such a beautiful smile.

– Diane Lowery

Should stay where he is. Remember

it so well. Never let my

children walk to school on their

own after that. It changed new

Zealand.

– Denis Lynn Gillison

What an absolute monster!

He should never be allowed

freedom! The mother must be

so strong to have dealt with this.

I can’t imagine losing my son.

Absolutely horrific!

– Imogene Middlemiss

COMMITMENT: Evan Smith has been a driving force

behind a petition on the future of the residential red

zone.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

campaign

comes full circle

IT WAS very special to be able

to welcome Poto Williams and

members of the Avon Ōtākaro

Network to the council chamber

this week as the more than

18,000 signature petition on

the future of the residential red

zone was returned home from

Parliament.

It was a ceremony that involved

people rowing, kayaking,

cycling and walking the petition

through the Ōtākaro Avon

River Corridor in a way that

mirrored the original journey to

Wellington eight years ago.

The petition had called on

Parliament to work with the

people and local authorities of

Christchurch to ensure that the

Avon River red zone becomes a

reserve and river park when the

home-owners had to leave. The

Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor

Regeneration Plan has enabled

this vision to become a reality.

So, this ceremony represented

a closing of the circle. And it was

an opportunity to pay tribute to

the person who was the driving

force behind the petition and

has remained so every step of

the way.

Evan Smith’s passion and

commitment has been to ensure

that the community would be at

the heart of planning the future

for this place that had been the

homes of thousands of Christchurch

residents.

It has remained his dream

that the governance of this land

becomes a genuine partnership

between mana whenua and the

community.

As we prepare for the transfer

of this land to the Council, this

is the time for this conversation

to begin.

The Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor

is a wonderful gift, which

enables us to explore what a

community partnership model

of ownership could look like.

This will allow us to reflect

this place’s unique history and

the legacy it offers us all in

perpetuity.

Spicy cauliflower steak

burgers

Serves 4

Ingredients

½ cucumber, thinly sliced

1 tbsp white wine vinegar

1 tbsp sugar

1 cauliflower, medium

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp smoked paprika

2 tbsp plain flour, well seasoned

100g dried white breadcrumbs

2 eggs, beaten

Peanut oil for frying

4 ciabatta rolls, toasted/halved

4 tbsp hummus

Rocket, a small handful

Red pepper 4 slices

Hot sauce to serve (optional)

Directions

Toss the cucumber with the

vinegar and sugar, and leave while

you prep the burgers.

Put the cauliflower stalk-end

down on a chopping board.

Trim the ends off two sides

of the cauliflower then cut

the remainder into 2cm slices

through the root to make four

‘steaks’ (you can freeze the

leftovers for soup or cauliflower

cheese). Trim them down slightly

if they’re much bigger than the

size of the buns.

Divide the spices equally

between the flour and

breadcrumbs in two shallow

bowls.

Dust each cauli steak in the

flour. Dip in the beaten egg then

coat in the breadcrumbs.

Heat 1cm deep of oil in a large

frying pan. Cook the steaks on

a medium heat for about 5min

each side until crisp, golden and

tender.

To build the burgers, spread the

top and bottom of each bun with

hummus. Add a few rocket leaves

then a slice of pepper. Top with the

cauli steak, some drained pickled

cucumber, and some hot sauce, if

using. Put on the tops and serve.

Our creamy cauliflower

Spiced cauli soup

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 cauliflower, large (about 450g)

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

1 tbsp medium curry powder

1 litre vegetable stock

100g Greek yogurt

½ lemon, juiced

Directions

Trim all of the florets from the

cauliflower and cut into chunky

pieces, keeping back two of the

nicer florets for later. Finely chop

the stem.

Heat the vegetable oil in a

large pan and cook the chopped

cauliflower florets and stem with

the onion over a medium heat for

10min, stirring regularly, until the

cauliflower is deeply golden.

Tip in the garlic and cook for

2min, then add the curry powder

and cook for 1min.

Pour in the vegetable stock

and simmer for 20min until the

cauliflower is starting to break

down. Stir through the yogurt,

then use a stick blender to whizz

until completely smooth.

Use a sharp knife or mandoline

to very thinly slice the two

cauliflower florets you kept back.

Gently toss them with a little

seasoning and the lemon juice.

Pour the soup into bowls

and top with the thinly sliced

cauliflower, and a grinding of

black pepper, if you like.

APPRENTICE JOCKEY Rohan

Mudhoo proved to be the star

of the show in the return of

races at Riccarton following the

easing of Covid-19 pandemic

restrictions.

The Mauritian-born 21-yearold

rode a treble of winners on

Saturday,

“That is the first time that I

have ridden three winners in

a row so it was a great thrill,”

Mudhoo said.

He is in the second full season

of his apprenticeship with Riccarton

trainer Mike McCann

after following his older brother

Krishna to New Zealand to

launch his riding career.

Saturday’s treble aboard

stable runners Gee Tee Eleanor,

Frankie The Fox and the Ellis

Winsloe-trained Irish Excuse

took him to the 51-win mark for

his career to date.

“I was pretty calm going into

the day and my boss had told

me just to take things how they

come and give the horses the

best possible chance I could.

“When the track got wetter

during the day, I was pretty

hopeful as both of our stable

horses had been working well

and handling that type of

ground well at home.

“Irish Excuse was just amazing

and it was a magic effort.

“I was walking about 50.5kg

so I had to put over 10kg of lead

in my saddle to get to the weight

he had to carry.

“He just didn’t want to give up

in the straight, he just kept trying

and trying and he got there

in the end.”

From a non-racing background,

Mudhoo admits he was

like any typical younger brother,

keen to follow in the footsteps of

his older sibling Krishna when

he started out on his path to

becoming a jockey.

“In my family the only person

who is involved in racing is my

older brother,” he said.

“When he was riding back

home, he went to the South African

Jockey Academy and then

got the opportunity to come to

New Zealand.

“I thought I’d follow him as

I had been following him since

I was a kid, the usual younger

brother thing where whatever he

was doing, I wanted to be doing

the same.

“I wanted to act like him and

I’d jump on the bed and pretend

I was riding like him.

“I rang him here in New Zealand

and he eventually managed

to get me a job here.”

While Mudhoo looked up

to his brother, Krishna made

sure his younger sibling found

out just what hard work was

required to make it as a jockey.

“He (Krishna) has taught me a

lot in so many ways but I can say

he has never been nice to me on

a racetrack,” Mudhoo said.

“He was always telling me

what I had done wrong, picked

on my mistakes and made me

learn very quickly.

“That has been good for my

riding and I do appreciate it as

it has taught me to figure out

what I need to do in different

circumstances.

“I know he loves me but he can

be a grumpy so and so when we

are out on the track together.”

Mudhoo is keen to develop his

riding further and plans to take

every opportunity available to

him as he looks forward to the

next 12 months in the saddle.

“I’m doing what I really want

to do and I’m living my dream

with race riding so I feel like I

am blessed.”

Keeping safe

during open homes

There’s a lot to consider

when putting your home

on show during the

selling process. While

you want your property to

look attractive to potential

buyers, you don’t want

them to advertise your

precious belongings to

anyone with ill intent. As

in most circumstances, a

bit of common sense goes

a long way.

To start with, you should

feel completely confident

about your real estate agent. Licensed

real estate agents are bound by the

Code of Conduct, which means they

have a clear responsibility to safeguard

your property. If you have any concerns

about holding open homes, or having

viewings of your property, it’s important

to discuss these with the agent so you

can both feel comfortable. They can

advise you on any precautions to take as

part of preparing the property for sale.

When you’re getting ready to put

the property on the market, the

New Zealand Police National Crime

Prevention Centre recommends

checking with your insurance provider

so you know what your policy covers.

Make sure you have enough insurance

to cover any potential property damage,

or any valuables. Let trusted neighbours

know the dates of any upcoming open

homes or viewings, and ask them to

keep an eye out for anything unusual.

The Police also suggest that you store

any valuables well out of sight before

you hold your first open home, or make

the property available for viewing. The

most commonly stolen items include

money, jewellery, office equipment,

clothing, electronics, and firearms.

Photograph and record serial numbers.

It can be helpful to make a checklist

to streamline the process and ensure

you don’t overlook anything. It’s a good

idea to hide your calendars – open

home viewers don’t need to know when

you plan to be away, or where you’re

planning to go. Put away family photos,

and lock away any passports, spare keys,

financial statements and credit cards.

Store any alcohol and prescription drugs

out of sight and preferably out of the

reach of children.

On the day of the open home, it is best

to wait at the property until the agent

arrives so you can officially pass the

security responsibility to them. Be sure

to walk the agent through the property

and orient them as needed. Ask them if

you can help them close up at the end of

the open home. Together you can check

the property, including any storage

areas and outside spaces. Double check

all the locks on windows and doors to

make sure they are secured as they were

before the viewing started.

Selling a home can be a stressful

process, so it makes sense to minimise

any hassles wherever possible. If you’ve

taken all the sensible precautions, you

shouldn’t need to worry about holding

an open home.
