Judy’s

bid to be

‘fastest’

to 100

marathons

• By Chris Barclay

JUDY BROCK is agonisingly

close to an acrylic running shoe

fitting the occasion perfectly,

a fairy tale ending to what has

been a hasty marathon journey

for the distance athlete.

Brock, who lives in Mt

Pleasant, is two certified race

finishes, or 84.39km away,

from upgrading her associate

membership of the 100

Marathon Club New Zealand to

the ‘fastest’ runner to reach the

milestone.

She has a bib for the Alpine

Marathon in Hanmer Springs

on Saturday and seven days later

in Wanganui, fitness permitting,

Brock will usurp Christchurch

marathon man Norman Chan,

who took six years, five months

and eight days to go from zero

to 100.

Brock ran her first marathon

in New York on November 2,

2014 after a mate dared the pair

to tackle the iconic route to mark

their 50th birthdays.

The challenge also enabled

Brock to follow in father Bob’s

footsteps. The senior constable

was killed when a helicopter

crashed at Franz Joseph glacier

in 1986, a few months after his

10th marathon at Buller.

Green light for $27m Naval Point plan

Closure of

Magazine Bay

marina

on cards

A $27 million plan to redevelop

Lyttelton’s Naval Point has been

given the goahead by the Banks

Peninsula Community Board.

The Naval Point Development

Plan, which was developed in

partnership with Te Hapū o

Ngāti Wheke (Rāpaki) Rūnanga,

includes an

expanded public

boat ramp,

reorganised

waterfront and

new breakwater.

The board

Tori Peden

also has

requested city

council staff start working on a

leasing plan for all Naval Point

users and recommended the city

council approve the closure of

the Magazine Bay marina, once

existing licences expire or are

terminated according to their

licence terms and conditions.

This will go to a future council

meeting, with the date still to be

set.

suit the needs of its recreational

users and for it to be more

accessible to the public,” she

said.

“We recognise that it will

take time for the plan’s vision

to be fully achieved but

approval of the plan means that

stakeholders, such as Canterbury

Coastguard and Lyttelton

Rugby, can pursue funding

opportunities for their projects

on the site.

“While the board has

approved this concept plan

for the site, we recognise

there will be ongoing work with

users and key stakeholders to

firm up the detailed designs

needed for future phases

of the development work –

especially elements such as the

breakwater.”

plan will take place in stages

NATURAL CYCLE: Thousands of dead krill turned Southshore beach pink last week.

Cycleway growth

CYCLISTS SAY the growing

network of major cycle routes

in the city is encouraging them

to make more trips by bike, new

survey findings show.

Earlier this year the city

council repeated the Cycle Users’

Survey that first ran in 2018.

This year 303 surveys were

completed, which involves interviews

with people found riding

their bikes on the city’s major

cycle routes.

City council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas said 82 per cent of those

who took part this year stated

the new cycleways have

encouraged them to use their

bikes more.

“It is clear from the responses

to the survey that the growing

network of major cycle routes in

the city is making a difference

to how people move around,” he

said.

“It was great to see people

talking about how they are now

happy for their kids to bike to

school or how they now cycle

into town if they are going to

meet friends for dinner.

Washed up krill

turns beach pink

SOUTHSHORE beach turned

bright pink last week after the

high tide left millions of whale

krill washed up.

Sea birds are feasting at the

beach on the swimming crabs

which form important food for

whales and other sea life.

Otago University’s Marine

Science Professor Steve King said

the summer stranding is nothing

to be alarmed about.

“It’s a natural cycle of the pelagic

food where climate change

is happening but it is mostly

manifested in the warm water

conditions we are seeing right

now.

“There’s a raft of red-pink

animals on the wave wash on

the beach, that’s a very typical

thing to happen in the summer

time in these sub-antarctic

waters.”

King said the red crabs have a

pigment which reflects the pink

colour.

encourages more riders to get on bikes

Steffan

Thomas

“The reason we are building

the cycleway network is to make

it safer and easier for people of

all ages to get around the city by

bike so it is really heartening to

hear about how the cycleways

are making people re-think their

transport options.’’

The survey

covered topics

such as

trip-purpose,

cycling frequency,

mode

of transport

prior to cycling,

cycleway

influence on

participation

and safety and

comfort perceptions.

The largest individual age

group of respondents were those

aged between 35 and 49-yearsold,

representing 30 per cent of

the results.

Overall, nearly 60 per cent

said they ride at least five times a

week, and more than 80 per cent

twice a week for work, education,

meeting friends and family, or for

fitness purposes.

Cyclists have also reported that

they feel safer on the road – in

2020, 92 per cent agreed that the

cycleways improved safety, which

was a decrease from 94 per cent

in 2018.

However, safety was still a

concern. Many described being

knocked from their bikes due

to vehicles using the cycle lane

when turning into driveways or

approaching intersections.

“Safety is still a concern for

some. As part of the survey, we

received lots of comments about

the behaviour of drivers and the

constant need for people cycling

to be vigilant around cars,” said

Thomas.

“Whether you are going by bike

or by car, we all need to take care

on the roads and keep an eye out

for other road users.”

PEDAL POWER: Cycle routes like the Coastal Pathway

from Ferrymead Bridge to Scarborough are encouraging

more people to get on bikes.

GREAT NEW READS INSTORE

Meghan Misunderstood

by Sean Smith

Meghan Misunderstood is a pioneering book that sets the

record straight on the most talked about, unfairly vilified and

misrepresented woman in the world. Meghan was eleven when she

first advocated for women’s rights; a teenager when she worked in

a soup kitchen feeding the homeless; a popular actress when she

campaigned for clean water in Africa and passionately championed

gender equality in a speech to a United Nations Women’s

Conference. Even before she met Prince Harry, hers was an

extraordinarily accomplished life. Now, Sean Smith, the UK’s leading

celebrity biographer, pulls no punches as he reveals the remarkable

and powerful story of this self-made, intelligent American woman

with a strong social conscience who has made such an impact on

our lives.

The Untold Story of the British Family Firm that Became

a Global Brand - reebok

By Joe Foster

The remarkable story of how Joe Foster developed Reebok into one of

the world’s most famous sports brands, having started from a small

factory in Bolton.

Since the late 19th century, the Foster family had been hand-making

running shoes, supplying the likes of Eric Liddell and Harold

Abrahams - later immortalised in the film Chariots of Fire - as well

as providing boots to most Football League clubs. But a family feud

between Foster’s father and uncle about the direction of their business

led to Joe and his brother Jeff setting up a new company, inspired by

the success of Adidas and Puma, and so Reebok was born.

No Time Like The Future

An Optimist Considers Mortality

By Michael J Fox

The entire world knows Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, the teenage

sidekick of Doc Brown in Back to the Future; as Alex P. Keaton in

Family Ties; as Mike Flaherty in Spin City; and through numerous other

movie roles and guest appearances on shows such as The Good Wife

and Curb Your Enthusiasm. Diagnosed at age 29, Michael is equally

engaged in Parkinson’s advocacy work, raising global awareness of the

disease and helping find a cure through The Michael J. Fox Foundation

for Parkinson’s Research, the world’s leading non-profit funder of PD

science. His two previous bestselling memoirs, Lucky Man and Always

Looking Up, dealt with how he came to terms with the illness, all the

while exhibiting his iconic optimism. His new memoir reassesses this

outlook, as events in the past decade presented additional challenges.

Down South

In Search of the Great Southern Land

by Bruce Ansley

In Down South, writer Bruce Ansley goes on a journey back to his

beloved South Island.

From Curio Bay to Golden Bay, in Down South writer Bruce Ansley

sets off on a vast expedition across the South Island, Te Waipounamu,

visiting the places and people who hold clues to the south’s famous

character. Not so very long ago, the South Island had most of New

Zealand’s people and just about all of the money. Gold miners found

fortunes in the hills and rivers, sheep barons straddled mountains,

valleys and plains. Wealthy southerners ruled the government. Where

now lies the South Island’s golden fleece? And what is its future.

Speed Kings

Australia and New Zealand’s quest to win the Indy 500,

the world’s greatest motor race. By John Smailes

The fascinating, definitive story of Australia and New Zealand’s quest to

win the world’s greatest motor race. Winning the Indianapolis 500, the

greatest spectacle in motorsport, has been a quest for Australians and

New Zealanders since the first race in 1911. Seventeen have tried and two

have succeeded: Scott Dixon in 2008 and Will Power in 2018. Rupert

Jeffkins, Australia’s original speed king, entered the first Indy 500 and on

his second attempt in 1912 came within five kilometres of victory. He and

Italian Ralph De Palma created legend when they pushed their car to the

finish line after it blew up while leading. Speed Kings tells Jeffkins’ full story

for the first time. it tells the story of the Australian and New Zealand drivers,

team owners, engineers, even commentators who’ve made the Brickyard

their quest.

‘I’d crawl to the end, I want that bling’

“I ran with his photo on

my back when I did my 10th

marathon (also Buller) which was

really neat as a memorial to him,”

Brock said.

The 56-year-old admin worker

originally figured she would

be one and done after the Big

Apple but her mindset changed

somewhere along the route from

Staten Island through Brooklyn.

“I was really nervous. I trained

hard, I didn’t drink alcohol for

six months.

“I really took it seriously and

during it I felt like Forrest Gump,

I felt like I could keep going

round Central Park. It was just

the most amazing experience.”

Brock was the 20,675th finisher

in 4.16:43, and since then her

placing and time haven’t exactly

been her driving force – stopping

the clock has been key.

And providing she completes

the Wanganui 3 Bridges course

on December 12 she will beat

Chan’s mark by four months

and become the 14th female club

member – and 51st overall – to

bring up three figures.

Ironically, had a global pandemic

not emerged in 2020,

Brock would have probably

reached century status on November

1, back where it all began.

“It was going to be one to a 100,

New York and back again, but

obviously Covid stuffed that up.

It’s sad, but it’s not a big deal is it?

People are dying.”

MEMORY:

Judy Brock

ran her 10th

marathon with

this photo

of her father

Bob Kram,

who died in

a helicopter

crash shortly

after he

reached the

milestone.

Brock then targeted Hanmer

Springs to reach the century

with family and friends, but

the cancellation of the Aoraki

Mount Cook Marathon due to

bad weather on October 3 forced

another revision.

She battled through the recently-verified

Kaikoura Mountain to

Sea Marathon on October 24 –

the only time she has finished last

– in a touch under six hours.

That still sits uncomfortably

after she was convinced to enter

at short notice by husband Stu.

“I had this ‘tail-end Charlie’ on

his push-bike for company. He

had a very sore arse by the end. I

told him I was sorry to keep him

out there so long,” she said.

Brock, whose best time is the

3.55:00 or so she recorded in

New Plymouth’s Mountain to

Surf Marathon, bounced back in

Queenstown last weekend and

is well primed for the challenge

ahead.

“You don’t have to train. I

swim twice a week and I bike

twice a week. I was doing a lot of

5ks and 10ks but (now) walking

the dog is enough. At the height

of it, I was doing 25 to 30 (marathons)

a year. One weekend I did

two,” she said.

Brock originally thought she’d

stop hitting the tarmac after

running Hawaii for her 50th, but

decided to push on.

She nominated Paris and

Auckland as her favourite endurance

tests and given the current

climate, Brock was grateful to

have run overseas.

“I feel very blessed that I did

the Great Wall of China, Buenos

Aires in Argentina and London,”

she said.

And no, Brock does not have a

DNF on her record, bristling at

the mere suggestion.

“I’d crawl to the end, I want

that bling, we love the medal.”

Yet, Wanganui is the end of the

road. The club’s shoe will take

pride of place with the framed

medals from London and New

York.

“I’m booked in with the surgeon

the day after I finish,” Brock

revealed.

“After about 80 marathons I

said to my doctor: ‘I’m having

trouble, I’m running like crap.’ I

knew I had a tear in my hip flexor

so he sent me to a surgeon who

told me: ‘You need a new hip’.

“People go: ‘It’s all that running’.

Unfortunately it’s a

hereditary thing. I’ve had to runwalk

and I’ve had some painful

moments.

“I’ll run as far as I can, it takes

me a couple of hours longer

now,” she said, eyeing a more

leisurely pursuit – lawns bowls at

Redcliffs.

A virtual walk in the park.

what we do and how and why we

do it.

Locally and throughout New

Zealand there are many different

cultures. The original Maaori

culture, is strongly based on the

interdependence between people

(taangata) and the environment

(whenua) with the belief that the

health of the people comes from

the health of the environment.

Western culture is dominant

across NZ, and while there

was strong connection to the

environment centuries ago, it has

gradually changed to one which

believes people are independent

of nature, can take whatever

resources they want, and have

limitless growth. These beliefs are

leading to massive degradation

of much of our biosphere, and

ironically, risk irreversibly changing

our earth to be uninhabitable

for humans.

Locally and throughout NZ/

Aotearoa we could change this

culture, by listening to, learning

from and working with Maori,

and incorporating more of their

culture and knowledge into our

daily lives.

We could all make a start by

saying “hi” or “kia ora” to a

neighbour, instead of keeping to

ourselves and rushing here and

there, and working long hours

for some things we later find we

didn’t really need.

Chat to neighbours, and spend

a little more time being active in

our community, doing recreation

or helping others or enjoying and

caring for the environment.

We may then see our community

as part of an environment,

where people recognise, connect

to, and care for each other, their

locality and wildlife, as guardians

(kaitiaki), because the key to

healthy and prosperous people

is a healthy and productive environment.

Our pledge on culture and

recreation for 2020 is support

a (low carbon emissions) local

cultural or sporting activity every

month.

ESTUARY MATTERS

Sea captain one of

Woolston’s biggest fans

The Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust is a non-profit

organisation formed to protect one of New Zealand’s most

important coastal wetlands. Each week, board members will

discuss matters regarding the estuary, its rich history and what

makes it unique. This week Bill Simpson writes about the man

behind Charlesworth Wetland Reserve

CHARLESWORTH Wetland

Reserve on the edge of the

estuary is a living memorial to

one of Woolston’s biggest fans.

Captain William

Charlesworth was a sea captain

trading between Australia,

India and England but on his

first voyage to Christchurch in

the mid-1850s he instantly fell in

love with the new town.

Within days, he had purchased

land on Ferry Rd near

the steam wharf on the Heathcote

River.

He acquired other properties

including three hotels in Lyttelton,

pastoral land along the

estuary edge and urban properties

on the corner of Kilmore

and Madras Sts.

He named his Ferry Rd property

Saxon Farm (his trading

ship was the Royal Saxon) and

built himself a grand house

which he called Saxon Villa.

Newspapers referred to him

as a gentleman and he had local

status as a sea captain but he

kept a low profile in local affairs.

His only recorded public

position was as a member of the

Woolston School Committee.

Across the Tasman, Charlesworth

is known as the man who

first bought elephants, tigers

and bears to Australia.

He collected the

animals in India and

then sold them to

colonists in Hobart, Melbourne

and Sydney. One of his

elephants, Tommy, toured

widely within Australia and

become quite famous.

After buying land here,

Charlesworth persuaded siblings

to come to New Zealand

with their families, but his only

child, Frederick Towns Charlesworth,

died at the age of 23 from

diphtheria.

Charlesworth died in 1875

aged 60 of blood poisoning from

an accident while chopping a

tree down near his house.

Volunteers are welcome to

assist in maintaining Charlesworth

Water safety plan called a milestone

THE CITY council’s Akaroa

and Takamatua Water Safety

Plan has been approved by the

drinking water assessor on

behalf of the Ministry of Health.

The plan is one of seven the

council is responsible for, under

the Health Act, that need to be

updated and submitted to the

drinking water assessor every

five years.

To date,

only the city

council and

Hurunui District

Council

have had water

safety plans

approved

Pauline

Cotter

under the

Government’s

Drinking

Water Safety Plan Framework,

which was introduced in 2018

following the Havelock North

Drinking Water Inquiry.

Chairwoman of the council’s

three waters, infrastructure and

environment committee Pauline

Cotter said it represents a huge

milestone.

“This is Christchurch City

Council’s first water safety plan

approved under the Government’s

new risk assessment

criteria,” she said.

“Staff should be congratulated

on a major achievement for

the Akaroa and Takamatua

water supply, and the residents

of those towns can be extra

confident their drinking-water

supply network is safe and

secure.”

The Akaroa and Takamatua

shared water supply network

draws its drinking water

from four streams and two

wells before being filtered and

chlorinated at a local treatment

plant which was constructed in

2015.

The city council is currently

working to resubmit its

Christchurch and Lyttelton

Water Safety Plan before the

end of this year to demonstrate

it is supplying safe and secure

drinking water for residents.

General manager city services

David Adamson said having the

first water safety plan across the

line will benefit the process for

the others.

“Having the approval of

the drinking water assessor

means we’re now in a better

position to fully understand the

expectations and to apply what

we’ve learned to our other water

safety plans,” he said.

“We have confirmation that

the way we assess and manage

public health risks to our water

supply networks, under the new

framework, is robust and valid.

We can now take this model and

apply it to our other water safety

plans, which will benefit the

approval process as we need to

resubmit those plans.”

Box 88

by Charles Cumming

The unforgettable new book from award-winning

writer and comedian Mark Watson.

An organisation that doesn’t exist.

A spy that can’t be caught.

Years ago, a spy was born…

1989: The Cold War will soon be over, but for BOX

88, a top secret spying agency, the espionage game

is heating up. Lachlan Kite, recruited from an elite

boarding school, is sent to France, tasked with gathering intelligence on an

enigmatic Iranian businessman implicated in the Lockerbie bombing. But

what Kite uncovers is more terrifying than anyone expected…

Now he faces the deadliest decision of his life… 2020: MI5 hear rumours

of BOX 88’s existence and go after Kite – but Iranian intelligence have got

to him first. Taken captive and brutally tortured, Kite has a choice: reveal

the truth about what happened in France thirty years earlier – or watch his

family die.

In a battle unlike anything he has faced before, Kite must use all his skills

to stay alive.

The Berlin Girl

by Mandy Robotham

From the bestselling author of The German Midwife comes the heartwrenching

story of a country on the brink of war, a woman who puts

herself in the line of fire, and a world about to be forever changed

Berlin, 1938: It’s the height of summer, and Germany is on the brink of

war. When fledgling reporter Georgie Young is posted to Berlin, alongside

fellow Londoner Max Spender, she knows they are entering the eye of the

storm. Arriving to a city swathed in red flags and crawling with Nazis,

Georgie feels helpless, witnessing innocent people being torn from their

homes. As tensions rise, she realises she and Max have to act – even if it

means putting their lives on the line. But when she digs deeper, Georgie

begins to uncover the unspeakable truth about Hitler’s Germany – and the

pair are pulled into a world darker than she could ever have imagined.

Alpine Fault rupture: What will it feel like?

• By Jamie Morton

THE NEXT major rupture of the

South Island’s Alpine Fault will

prove one of the largest – if not

the biggest – that earthquakes

Kiwis have ever experienced.

But what will it actually feel

like?

The geology of New Zealand

makes that an incredibly

complex question to answer

– but a new study evaluating

millions of different earthquake

scenarios will give us a much

better idea.

The Alpine Fault, which runs

about 600km up the western

side of the South Island between

Milford Sound and Marlborough,

poses one of the biggest

natural threats to New Zealand –

especially Canterbury, the West

Coast, and Otago.

It has a clear geologic record

of rupturing around every three

centuries – and 2017 marked

the 300th anniversary of what is

thought to have been a magnitude

8.0 earthquake that moved

one side of the fault by about 8m

in a matter of seconds.

Recent studies undertaken

as part of the joint AF8 project

have suggested a big quake could

block South Island highways

in more than 120 places, leave

10,000 people cut off, and cost

the economy about $10 billion.

BIG THREAT: The Alpine Fault, which runs about 600km up the western side of the South

Island, poses one of the biggest natural threats to New Zealand. PHOTO: GETTY IMAGES ​

Now, a team of scientists led

by Professor John Townend

of Victoria University of

Wellington—Te Herenga Waka

and Dr Caroline Holden of GNS

Science aim to build a state-ofthe-art,

3D picture of the ground

shaking effects we could expect

from future large earthquakes on

the fault.

“When the Alpine Fault next

ruptures, it will produce seismic

waves that propagate out in

all directions,”

Townend said.

“The ground

shaking we feel

in different parts

of the country

during an earthquake

is controlled

by the size

of the earthquake

and aspects of

John

Townend

how the fault is slipping but also

by the geological structure the

seismic waves encounter as they

propagate over long distances

and by the local geology right

beneath our feet.

“What we’re interested in is,

how do variations in the likely

characteristics of the earthquake

affect ground shaking at different

locations in the country?”

Scientists say the intensity of

the shaking in the most affected

areas – particularly West Coast

spots – could be unlike anything

we’ve felt before.

The next Alpine Fault earthquake

would likely also be a

long-duration event – unzipping

the crust for as much as three

minutes – because of the sheer

length of the fault.

“By comparison, the Kaikōura

earthquake in 2016 ruptured a

total fault length of 200km in the

space of about two minutes,” said

Holden.

“Given what we know from

geological studies of the Alpine

Fault, we’re anticipating a major

magnitude 8.0-plus earthquake,

rupturing 500km of the crust,

so the shaking will be felt

throughout the South Island, but

the intensity and duration will

ultimately depend on what happens

on the fault.”

Townend said detailed

geological and geophysical studies

of the Alpine Fault over the past

decade – and the Canterbury

and Kaikōura quakes themselves

– had done much to fill in

knowledge gaps about potential

Alpine Fault scenarios.

“But we haven’t yet witnessed

a rupture of this fault ourselves,

so our understanding of what

ground motions it will produce

is based on hypotheses about

how much of the fault ruptures,

how fast, and to what depth . . .

and the elastic properties of the

Earth,” he said. •Turn to page 18

Edith Cavell Corner

New Edith Cavell Manager, Scott Wallace, enjoying a morning cuppa with resident, Denis Stanton.

New Manager for

Edith Cavell as

Refresh Takes Shape

These are exciting times for Edith Cavell as a refresh has begun to

brighten, lighten and modernise Sumner’s very own Care Home,

whilst retaining all the charm and features that we know and love.

Edith Cavell also welcomes a new face, as we bid a sad but fond farewell

to Moira when she handed over the reigns to new Manager, Scott.

Scott joins after a long and successful career in the hotel industry in

New Zealand and Australia.

Scott explains, “I got to the stage when I was looking for a change,

and as my parents became older I realised the real need for them to

have an enjoyable retirement with quality care available. This really

became front of mind and set me on a new pathway.”

Scott says there are a lot of similarities between running a hotel and

a Care Home, in terms of really putting the residents first. “Creating

an exceptional experience for the residents is first and foremost, so

managing the day to day aspects such as cleaning and cooking are

pretty similar,” says Scott

However, one key difference is the important task of overseeing quality

nursing care. Scott says, “We have a genuinely passionate and caring

team including our fantastic Clinical Services Manager, Maria Crone,

who is doing an outstanding job.”

Another very positive difference is the enjoyment Scott is finding from

forging personal relationships with residents and their families. “To

meet these wonderful people and hear their amazing stories is the

best job satisfaction anyone could wish for,” he says.

Scott believes the refurbishment will reaffirm Edith Cavell as a truly

valuable asset to the Sumner Community.

“You can already see the new, but true to character, colour scheme

from the street and we’ve already been receiving favourable

comments,” he says.

Scott is really looking forward to meeting more of Edith Cavell’s wider

family members at the Christmas BBQ on December 9th.

“I’ve been really blown away by the support and enthusiasm shown

from our local community, offering to come and sing and support us

as one of their very own,” says Scott.

Watch this space for more news and updates on Edith Cavell’s refurbishment.

Newly-developed methods

of extracting information

• From page 16

“By analysing these rupture

scenarios mathematically,

you can calculate the

ground shaking in different

places – but you can realistically

only do that for a

limited range of scenarios

because simulating the

propagation of seismic

waves through complex

geological structures is a

very large computational

task.”

The key to evaluating

a broader range of

earthquake rupture

scenarios could lie in

newly-developed methods

of extracting information

from background seismic

noise – or what Townend

called the Earth’s “hum”.

“Much of what we record

with seismometers is noise

generated by ocean waves,”

he said.

“It looks pretty random

but embedded in the

incoherence are useful

signals that tell us how

seismic waves propagate

between different parts of

the Alpine Fault and, say,

locations in Christchurch

or Nelson or wherever you

like.”

Techniques for extracting

those signals from the

noise recordings have been

developed by members

of the team and applied

successfully to faults in

PEOPLE ARE being invited

to play an interactive online

game that will test their

knowledge of what items

belong in the red, yellow

and green wheelie bins.

The game, which people

can play on their smartphones

and online has been

developed by city council

staff and is the latest tool in

the ongoing campaign to

help people bin good.

The game requires players

to drag selected items into

either the red, green or yellow

bin.If they put the item

in the right bin, they earn

points. If they put the item

in the wrong bin, the bin

shakes and they get an X on

the scoreboard. The correct

bin will light up.

The items used in the

game were selected because

they are ones that people

often get confused about

and put in the wrong bin.

Said council resource

recovery manager Ross

Trotter. “The success of

our kerbside rubbish and

recycling service depends

on people putting the right

California and Japan.

The novelty of this approach

is that calculating

how different patterns of

slip on the fault affected

ground shaking at locations

of interest throughout

the South Island and

southern North Island

could be done without having

to simulate the entire

wave propagation process.

Townend said the approach

meant they could

efficiently and accurately

simulate millions of different

earthquakes.

“This enables us to

compute realistic ground

shaking in population

centres and at other

vulnerable locations in

stuff in the right bin. This

new game is a fun, interactive

way of teaching people

about what bin they should

use for different items.

“The contents of the green

wheelie bin get processed

and turned into compost.

That cannot happen if there

is too much non-organic

material in the bin. Likewise,

the contents of the

yellow wheelie bin cannot

be recycled if non-recyclable

items are included.

“Our goal is to minimise

the amount of waste going

to landfill so that’s why we

need people to put the right

stuff in the right bin.

response to many more

earthquake rupture

scenarios than can be

practicably studied using

conventional approaches,”

Townend said.

“This means that we

can investigate a far more

comprehensive range of

scenarios that take into

account the latest information

we have about the

fault’s current state, and

obtain realistic probabilistic

estimates of the shaking

that will occur in inevitable

future large Alpine Fault

earthquakes.”

The new study is being

supported with a $960,000

grant from the Marsden

Fund. – NZ Herald

Game to test your

bin waste knowledge

“If you are confused

about what goes in each

of the bins, give the game

a try. I also recommend

that you use our updated

wheelie bin app. It has a

great search function which

you can use if you are

uncertain about which bin

a particular items belongs

in. All you have to do is

enter the name of the item

you want to dispose of and

it will tell you which bin to

put it in.’’

More funds

to preserve

heritage?

• By Louis Day

MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel has

floated the idea of rolling out

a targeted rate which would

be used to preserve the city’s

heritage.

This would result in an additional

charge being added on to

the overall rates bill residents and

businesses receive.

The targeted rate would charge

each property the same unlike

the majority of the rates bill

which is calculated based on

property value.

The money would then be used

to establish a fund which would

only be put towards the repair

and maintenance of the city

council’s tangible and intangible

heritage, ringfencing the money

and protecting it from the tug of

war between projects and assets

that can occur when the council

arranges its budget.

Dalziel thought protecting

Christchurch’s heritage was

especially important after losing

so much of it to the Canterbury

earthquake sequence.

Call for rates adjustment

• By Louis Day

AN ADJUSTMENT to how the

city council charges for rates

which would see expensive

properties pay more and those

on the other end of the spectrum

pay less, has been called for.

City councillor Jake McLellan

from left-leaning Labour-aligned

group The People’s Choice is the

person behind the call. He sees the

adjustment as a progressive move

towards ensuring everybody pays

according to their means.

However, councillors from

opposing right-leaning political

group Independent Citizens see

this as “completely ridiculous”

and an attempt to implement a

wealth tax “through the backdoor

of local government.”

While the majority of the

rates bill residents across the city

council’s jurisdiction are charged

is determined by property value,

there is a relatively small fixed

charge called the uniform annual

general charge.

This charge is currently set

at $132 and is added on to the

overarching rates bill of all properties

regardless of their value.

This is less than half the $439 the

Auckland Council charges its

constituents.

McLellan thought this “flat

tax” approach was regressive and

should be scrapped entirely or at

least reduced.

Congratulations to

PRINCIPLE:

Jake McLellan

says the “flat

tax” approach

should be

scrapped.

He believed a more progressive

strategy was needed where the

value of properties were taken

into account.

He said this was less about

money and more about principle.

“Under this approach, most

people would actually be better

off, people in Fendalton would

have to pay a little more, but I’m

happy with that,” he said.

“This is about people paying

their fair share and paying according

to their means.

“We should be trying to reduce

the rates burden to those who

need it in these trying times.”

City council staff have been

asked by councillors to provide

them with a report on a review

of the uniform annual general

charges. Any changes to the

charge would require public consultation

before being made.

Deputy Mayor and The

People’s Choice caucus leader

Andrew Turner said he would

not like to see these charges increase

but would not say whether

he wanted to see them decrease

until he had seen the work produced

from staff.

Ensuring there was a “fair and

equitable” distribution of charges

was needed though, he said.

City councillor and member

of Independent Citizens Sam

MacDonald thought abolishing

or reducing the uniform annual

general charges would be “completely

ridiculous.”

“It is out of touch with the

hard-working ratepayers of

Christchurch,” he said.

MacDonald questioned why a

Labour-aligned councillor from

The People’s Choice was pursuing

what appeared to be a wealth

tax when Prime Minister Jacinda

Ardern had ruled one out this

term.

“I don’t know why they are

trying to implement one through

the back door of local government.”

Fellow city councillor and

Independent Citizens member

James Gough saw this as a “very

blunt and poorly thought out attempt

at a wealth tax.”

“Just because someone resides

in an area that has a higher average

land value does not in any

way correspond to their affluence,

cashflow or ability to pay,”

he said.

“You would essentially be saying

that a pensioner who has the same

sized house on the same sized

section in one part of town needs

to pay considerably more for their

rubbish collection and council

services than someone who lives

on the other side of town.

“The people who it would

really punish are those on fixed

incomes such as pensioners

who struggle as it is to pay their

rates.”

Message from the Principal

At Marian College, as 2020 draws to a

close, we celebrate our students who have

all persevered during this challenging year.

This year began with excitement for the Year

9 students starting high school and we all

looked forward to the busy calendar of events,

making new friendships and taking on new

learning. No-one could have anticipated a

global pandemic, but our students coped

with the changes required with courage and

commitment. As a Catholic Special Character

school, our Gospel and school values have

stood us in good stead in 2020.

We are proud of our staff who worked hard

to provide home learning during lockdown,

quickly adapting to full online teaching

practices and keeping in close contact with our

students. They were committed to maintaining

every opportunity for progress and success.

We are equally proud of our students who

also had to adjust to a new way of working

and managed very well. On their return

to school, they had a renewed respect for

the relationships in our school-both with

friends and with their teachers. Our sports

and cultural teams quickly picked up their

competitive spirit on our return back to school

and were involved in summer and winter

events ranging from Theatre sports to korfball.

We were also fortunate to be able to celebrate

our Marian College Feast Day – a wonderful,

long-standing tradition.

Thank you to our families for their support

during this year, we have

valued working with you.

As a family, faith-based

school, we appreciate

working together for the

benefit of the students.

We look forward to an exciting year in

2021, as the design and plans for our new

school will be finalised and work begins on

building, ready for our opening in 2023 at the

new site in Papanui. We anticipate sharing

the innovative design with our community at

the start of the school year.

Wishing you every blessing this Christmas.

Start a new

Christmas tradition

What could be better than starting some new family traditions this year? Christmas traditions are memories

in the making and help spread a little festive cheer whether with your loved ones or out in the community.

10 great ideas to help make Christmas a magical time of the year

1. Create a Christmas playlist with some of

your favourite carols and songs – play it

loud and every day, if that’s your thing.

Or plan a pre-Christmas sing-along

evening – don’t forget to supply the song

sheet so everyone can join in too.

2. Get into the spirit of Christmas by getting

together with family or friends to help

decorate each other’s houses – turn up

the music, drink the wine and go all out

to deck the halls.

3. Make and send homemade Christmas

cards – there’s nothing more exciting

than getting mail, right? Or how about

writing some generic ones and dropping

them into your nearest retirement

home to brighten up an elderly person’s

Christmas.

4. Buy your family Christmas tee-shirts or

Santa hats to wear on the day and don’t

forget to take a family selfie.

5. Fill a shoebox with gifts for a child, wrap

it with a bow, and deliver to the nearest

community gift tree – check with your

local library and label with age and

gender.

6. Have a yearly family, friends or neighbour

outdoor games night with drinks and

nibbles leading up to the big day – think

Pétanque, hoopla, mini golf, giant chess,

or croquet.

7. Take a leaf out of Iceland’s traditional

‘Jolabokaflod’ or Christmas Book Flood,

and give a book as a gift on Christmas

Eve each year – don’t forget to write

inside the cover who it’s from and the

date.

8. Make a list of must see Christmas movies

to watch a week before Christmas day

and tick off the ones you’ve watched.

Don’t forget the popcorn and hot

chocolate or nibbles and wine.

9. Make and give a handmade ornament

as a gift each year – the lucky receiver’s

Christmas tree will be covered with

beautiful, handmade memories.

10. Make homemade hot chocolate on

Christmas Eve or on Christmas morning

to drink while the presents are being

opened – decorate with whipped cream,

grated chocolate, marshmallows, or

crushed candy canes.

Christmas shopping made easy!

Delicious mueslis, granolas and porridges.

A great gluten free range as well.

For the cooks amongst you, a good selection

of nuts, seeds and dried fruit.

Beautiful handmade Christmas cards

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Christmas is a great time for passing down recipes that are tried and true becoming

traditional family favourites. The owner of this recipe says her mum used to make

the pudding on Christmas Eve and would take the bowl and wooden spoon around

everyone in the house to stir the mixture and make a wish.

Make a Wish Christmas Pudding

You will need:

• 1 ½ tbsp butter

• 1 ½ tsp baking soda

• 1 ½ cups of boiling water

• 1 ½ cups flour

• 1 ½ cups mixed fruit or sultanas

Method:

1. In a glass or stainless steel bowl,

melt the butter (over hot water)

and dissolve the baking soda.

2. Add the boiling water and

sugar.

3. When cool, add flour and

mixed fruit.

4. Stir all the ingredients together

and make a Christmas wish.

5. Cover bowl with a tea towel and

allow to stand overnight.

The next day:

• Place mixture into a greased

bowl or ice-cream container,

cover with tinfoil and place in a

pot of water, just deep enough

so the bowl doesn’t float.

• Boil pudding for four hours and

check regularly to make sure

the water has boiled dry. Top

up carefully with extra water if

required.

• Serve with heaps of Chantilly

cream!

Chantilly

Shops bursting with

festive gift ideas

The countdown to the big day is well underway, so making up the

Christmas gift list will now be a top priority… if you haven’t already done so.

Finding those special gifts and stocking fillers as

well as the Christmas treats for the table is so easy at

our city’s malls and shopping centres, where the shops

are bursting with festive merchandise.

Every woman likes to receive body pampering

gifts, and there is a huge selection of these priced

to suit all budgets at the many pharmacies and gift

shops around the city. Perfume is another favourite

and again there is a wide selection to choose from,

ranging from exciting new releases to the well-known

fragrances that have stood the test of time. Lingerie,

jewellery, fashion accessories, homewares and decor

items – there’s no end to the ideas for the women on

the list.

The men are equally well catered for, from the

sophisticated metro-male boyfriends, to the car-crazy

brothers and the DIY enthusiast and keen gardener

husbands and dads. Choose from clothing, books,

tools, personal grooming items and gadgets to put a

smile on their face on Christmas morning.

Speaking of smiles, nothing gives families more joy

than seeing the excitement of the children opening

their presents. Whether they are delivered by Santa

or snuck under the tree by mum and dad, the cuddly

toys, games, dolls and building blocks, the candy

canes, toy trucks and pretty dresses currently filling

the shops will bring squeals of sheer happiness from

the smallest family members.

The tweens and teens usually have their own ideas

about what they want for Christmas, so the gift cards

offered by a wide range of retailers are the perfect way

to please.

Give a Christmas

gift to remember!

With summer on the way there’s

never been a better excuse to take

a break and head to Hanmer Springs.

Just 90 minutes north of Christchurch,

Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa

offers something for everyone - whether

it’s that hard-to-buy-for friend or a well

deserved treat for yourself.

We’ve got packages to suit every

occasion. Relax and unwind in our

22 open-air thermal pools, enjoy the

adrenalin of Conical Thrill, New Zealand’s

largest aquatic thrill ride, or get totally

pampered at The Spa.

Whether it’s a day-trip or a longer stay,

give the gift of fun and relaxation at

boxes, and seedlings to grow your own.

For the peckish there’s a terrific choice

of quality eats, from international street

food to candy floss. There’s oven fresh

reason. It’s been running since 2003 and

BMW X6 challenges design rules

CAR MAKERS are always

looking for a point of difference

in their designs.

A good example of that is

BMW’s X6 sport utility vehicle.

Well such is its style it doesn’t really

fit the SUV mould, its coupetype

rear quarter tapers markedly

to provide a fast-back look, one

which is distinctive and eyecatching.

If you add in genuine

bulk – the X6 is big – then you

have a bold, brash SUV that has a

polarising style.

Most of the people who I talked

about it liked it, but then there

were others who said it was a bit

over the top and unnecessarily

complicated as a design, especially

up front where an angular,

illuminated grille commands

attention.

The X6 has always been

controversial, when it was first

launched it had only four seats

which seemed a bit of a waste in

such a big car. However, BMW

has addressed that, it has been a

five-seater for several years now.

The X6 lands here with three

engine options; well, two are pretty

much the same design, a 3-litre

six-cylinder diesel with two different

power outputs, but for those

who like to stick with a high-performance

petrol engine, the M50i

is V8-powered. All have BMW’s

xDrive four-wheel-drive system.

The two diesels have nomenclatures

of 30d and 50d respectively.

This evaluation surrounds the

entry-level model which lists at

$149,400, the 50d and M50i are

both priced at $187,100.

Given its stature, the X6 has a

plush, spacious interior, and for

those onboard you are cocooned

in the lap of luxury, and there is

an abundance of trim details that

will provide a pleasurable travelling

experience for all occupants.

The driver also gets a wealth of

functions and controls, many of

which are voice activated while,

of course, the X6 has the benefit

of a multitude of safety systems

incorporated into the vehicle.

Up front sits the big diesel, it

has massive power outputs even

in what is considered low-power

form. BMW claims 195kW and

620Nm, if that is not enough

grunt for you the 50d adds 99kW

and 140Nm. For me, though, the

30d has enough to satisfy. Power

is sufficient enough to claim a

6.5sec time to reach 100km/h.

That’s not bad for a tubby vehicle

which weighs just over twotonne.

The engine is strong and wilful,

it is grunty under load and in a

subdued way it lets you know it is

enjoying its work. It throbs away

and is free-revving in its nature,

hauling to the 5000rpm redline

willingly, and that is unusual for

a big diesel. Not that there is any

real need to explore high revolutions,

diesels of this type have

mammoth mid-range torque, and

for that matter, the X6 is an absolute

dynamo during a highway

overtake. Such is the acceleration

BMW X6 30d: Sports sedan feel with notable power/handling balance.

you need to keep a close watch on

the speedometer, the X6 charges

to dizzy speeds with little effort

and little sensation of speed.

It also seems unfathomable

that you can have this huge

charge of energy from under the

bonnet and still achieve remarkable

fuel usage economy. BMW

also claims a 7.1-litre per 100km

combined cycle average. On my

long highway run the readout was

listing a 5.2l/100km instantaneous

figure at 100km, the engine

almost idling at just 1350rpm.

That contributed to an overall

9l/100km figure when I had finished

evaluating.

Overall, that’s perfectly acceptable,

and figures that will continually

surprise the X6 buyer, you

can have huge impetus without

needlessly scoffing fuel.

The engine drives to all four

corners through an eight-speed

automatic transmission. It is a

sequential shifting type with

paddles attached to the steering

wheel should the driver desire

to take control of the gearshift

process. Left to its own devices

the gearbox works the torque pattern

of the engine well, upshifting

early to minimise fuel usage.

Perhaps the biggest surprise

of all with the X6 is that of its

handling. I’ve mentioned it is a

big car and you’d expect there

to be limitations when twisty

backroads are encountered. That’s

far from the reality, the X6 belies

its bulk, it feels tightly connected

with the road and it is remarkably

agile. A lot of that can be attributed

to the massive 22in Continental

tyres which have amazing

sidewall flexibility along with

unyielding grip.

Steerage is informative and

the entire vehicle is balanced

over the suspension. Of course,

you are paying a premium price

for the X6 and you’d expect all

the ducks to be in row, but the

power/handling balance of the

X6 is something quite extraordinary,

it feels like a sports sedan,

it is something quite special

when the never ending mixture

of New Zealand’s road types are

presented.

The X6 is a complicated car to

describe. For one it is the quintessential

family wagon, it is also a

recreational model which would

be at home on the Mt Hutt skifield

access road, and it is a performance

SUV that is very wilful

with its high power outputs.

For my money the ‘baby’ of the

series would win out. As much

as I like big V8 petrol engines,

the 3-litre diesel charms with its

honesty and economy; however,

deciding between the 30d

and 50d is another conundrum

altogether.

From family cars to work trucks and

supercars to fixer-uppers.

No matter what you're looking for, you

can find it all with Drivesouth.

another elevated area where you can admire

the spectacular surroundings. Undeniable ease

swimming pool basking in all day sun
