Proving age is no barrier<br />

to keeping fit and mobile<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

LIN CLARK, an 81-year-old<br />

energetic gym-goer believes<br />

age is no excuse for not making<br />

your fitness and mobility a<br />

priority.<br />

Clark makes up a trio of inspiring<br />

active women attending<br />

the Female Federation gym in<br />

Ferrymead who all share their<br />

birthdays this month.<br />

Isabel Mundy and Ngaire<br />

Onekawa are both set to turn<br />

80-years-old this month, on<br />

<strong>February</strong> 7 and 18 respectively.<br />

Clark’s 82nd birthday is on <strong>February</strong><br />

15.<br />

All three powerhouse ladies<br />

regularly attend the gym, taking<br />

part in Pilates and balance<br />

classes, as well as working on<br />

their own cardio and weights<br />

routines.<br />

They are choosing to stay<br />

fit and healthy, defying the<br />

stereotype that aging holds you<br />

back from achieving an active<br />

lifestyle.<br />

Decked out with a Crusaders<br />

tattoo and a Rugby World Cup<br />

tattoo on each wrist, Onekawa is<br />

a keen sportswoman.<br />

She has always been active.<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

AKAROA residents believe<br />

there has been a reduction in<br />

city council support due to the<br />

village’s service centre being<br />

moved to a different building.<br />

The service centre was<br />

previously housed in the historic<br />

1914 post office building.<br />

However, what remains of<br />

city council support is now<br />

conducted out of the Akaroa<br />

area school and community<br />

library.<br />

Akaroa Ratepayers and<br />

Residents Association president,<br />

Harry Stronach<br />

believes this action<br />

is detrimental to<br />

the community.<br />

He spoke at the<br />

Banks Peninsula<br />

Community Board<br />

meeting last Monday.<br />

“We don’t have<br />

a citizen hub like<br />

they do in Halswell.<br />

Instead, the Akaroa<br />

Library cannot<br />

provide the full<br />

council service,”<br />

Stronach said. He<br />

wants the full service<br />

centre back in the old post office<br />

building.<br />

The post office building was<br />

previously damaged in the<br />

<strong>February</strong> 22, 2011 earthquake.<br />

In 2015, the city council<br />

conducted a consultation<br />

process with local residents on<br />

whether to repair the building<br />

office building (left).<br />

or construct a completely new<br />

service centre.<br />

According to community<br />

support officer Lee Harper, at<br />

the time, a majority of 93 per<br />

cent wanted the old post office<br />

building to be reinstated.<br />

At a cost of more than<br />

$900,000, the building was repaired<br />

and the service centre was<br />

reinstated until now.<br />

Stronach believes the subsequent<br />

transition is inconsistent<br />

and contrary to the 2015 public<br />

consultation.<br />

“It is as if the council have<br />

deliberately gone out of their way<br />

to prove that the consultation<br />

process is a complete waste of<br />

time, by not listening to what the<br />

public have to say.”<br />

Although the city council<br />

informed the Banks Peninsula<br />

Community Board in December<br />

that it was no longer cost<br />

effective to continue the service<br />

centre, the public were never<br />

asked for their views.<br />

“The council should have gone<br />

through the proper process of<br />

consultation and then actually<br />

listen to the people,” said Stronach.<br />

“There is a widening gulf<br />

between the community and the<br />

council.”<br />

Akaroa resident Victoria<br />

Andrews shared her concerns<br />

in a letter to the Sustainability<br />

and Community Resilience<br />

Committee in December last<br />

year.<br />

The city council responded<br />

Wednesday <strong>February</strong> <strong>10</strong> <strong>2021</strong> <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News<br />

NEWS 3<br />

Moving service centre concerns residents<br />

to Andrews’ concerns in a<br />

memorandum written by Alicia<br />

Wright, manager of operational<br />

process and insights.<br />

Said Wright: “As there has<br />

been a seamless transition to the<br />

library with no interruption to<br />

the service offering, an approach<br />

of informing rather than consulting<br />

was taken.”<br />

She said the move of customer<br />

service functions was due to the<br />

challenges of the remote location<br />

and was being conducted under<br />

a trial period completed by June<br />

30.<br />

Stronach disagrees that the<br />

transition has been anything<br />

but smooth and argues the true<br />

challenge is “getting the council<br />

to understand that the ‘one size<br />

fits all’ approach will not work in<br />

Akaroa.”<br />

Andrews believes the new<br />

space is too small to accommodate<br />

the service centre facilities<br />

as well as the library it already<br />

houses.<br />

“City council staff are simply<br />

out of touch with what really<br />

happens in the community,”<br />

Stronach said.<br />

The community board<br />

has requested city council<br />

staff provide an information<br />

report in response to the<br />

concerns raised by Andrews<br />

and Stronach.<br />

Saving Justice Truth, Transparency, and Trust<br />

by James Comey<br />

This will not come as a surprise to anyone, including even to the President’s most<br />

ardent defenders: Donald Trump lied to me from the start.<br />

Saving Justice is James Comey’s searing memoir and guide to reclaiming truth in<br />

the institutions of justice, which have been so badly damaged under Trump. Trump<br />

has managed to convince millions of Americas that our federal justice system<br />

doesn’t operate with integrity and that its leaders routinely fail to tell the truth. That<br />

is a dangerous situation that must be addressed and corrected.<br />

James Comey has worked in government in Republican and Democratic<br />

administrations - as a line federal prosecutor, a US Attorney, Justice Dept official,<br />

and Director of the FBI - and he shares stories from his career that illuminate<br />

the indispensable core values of America’s justice institutions and why we must<br />

overcome and repair the corrosive damage Trump and his underlings have done<br />

with deception, alternative facts, dishonesty, political payback, and amorality.<br />

Oscar Garden A Tale of One Man’s Love of Flying<br />

by dr Annamaria Garden<br />

One day in 1930, a man walked into a department store in London and bought<br />

an aeroplane. Having just learned to fly, Oscar Garden dreamed of flying to<br />

Australia. In his newly purchased aeroplane, he did just that. This adventure<br />

and myriad of others this risk-taker embarked on are recounted in this book.<br />

Oscar’s love of flying saw him joy riding to many places in the world, including<br />

New Zealand, South Africa, and up through Africa to Palestine. While based<br />

in London, he joined British Airways and Imperial Airways flying flying boats<br />

across the Empire. Finally, he came to rest in Auckland, New Zealand, after<br />

delivering the Awarua, the second of New Zealand’s flying boats, used during<br />

World War II for communication and travel, reducing New Zealand’s isolation.<br />

He became Chief Pilot of TEAL, the New Zealand airline, for half of the war<br />

years and beyond, and eventually resigned due to serious disagreement over<br />

management and political agendas. This biography describes Oscar Garden’s<br />

fascinating journey through these episodes.<br />

Kremlin Winter<br />

russia and the Second Coming of Vladimir Putin<br />

by robert Service<br />

Vladimir Putin has dominated Russian politics since Boris Yeltsin relinquished the<br />

presidency in his favour in May 2000. He served two terms as president, before<br />

himself relinquishing the post to his prime minister, Dimitri Medvedev, only to return<br />

to presidential power for a third time in 2012. Putin’s rule, whether as president or<br />

prime minister, has been marked by a steady increase in domestic repression and<br />

international assertiveness. Despite this, there have been signs of liberal growth and<br />

Putin - and Russia - now faces a far from certain future. Robert Service, acclaimed<br />

biographer of Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky and one of our finest historians of modern<br />

Russia, brings his deep understanding of that country to bear on the man who leads<br />

it. He reveals a premier who cannot take his supremacy for granted, yet is determined<br />

to impose his will not only on his closest associates but on society at large. It is a<br />

riveting insight into power politics as Russia faces a blizzard of difficulties both at<br />

home and abroad.<br />

Sir Bob Charles - The Biography<br />

Limited edition by Geoff Saunders<br />

There are only 1963 copies of the Limited Edition available for sale. They<br />

are individually numbered and signed by Sir Bob Charles, offering readers a<br />

unique opportunity to own a piece of New Zealand’s golfing history. 1963 is<br />

significant, marking the year Sir Bob Charles became the first New Zealander to<br />

win a golfing major. This is the first comprehensive biography of Sir Bob Charles.<br />

He embarked upon a career that no New Zealander had chosen before - that<br />

of a full-time touring professional golfer. He competed in the “golden age” of<br />

professional golf in the 1960s and 1970s, and acquired the title of the “best<br />

putter in the world”. On the Senior PGA Tour from 1986 he became the man to<br />

beat. With his 1999 knighthood and his elevation to the Order of New Zealand<br />

in 2011 he has been honoured not only for his success as a golfer but also for<br />

the way he has lived his life. The combination of the narrative with over 160<br />

photographs makes Sir Bob Charles - The Biography, a stunning in-depth study<br />

of the life and times of this great New Zealand sportsman.<br />

Battle of Brothers<br />

William, Harry and the Inside Story of a Family in Tumult<br />

by robert Lacey<br />

The world has watched Prince William and Prince Harry since they were born. Raised<br />

by Princess Diana to be the closest of brothers, how have the boy princes grown into<br />

very different, now distanced men? From royal expert and bestselling author Robert<br />

Lacey, this book is an unparalleled insider account of tumult and secrecy revealing<br />

the untold details of William and Harry’s early closeness then estrangement. It asks<br />

what happens when two sons are raised for vastly different futures. Were the seeds<br />

of damage sowed as Prince Charles and Diana’s marriage painfully unraveled for<br />

all the world to see? What choices has Queen Elizabeth II made in marshalling her<br />

feuding heirs? What parts have Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle played in helping<br />

their husbands to choose their differing paths? And what is the real, unvarnished<br />

story behind Harry and Meghan’s dramatic departure? In the most intimate vision<br />

yet of life behind closed doors, with the family’s highs, lows and hardest decisions<br />

all laid out, this is a journey into royal life as never offered before.<br />

‘It’s a relief to find you’re still strong’<br />

• From page 1<br />

The mother of three children,<br />

seven grandchildren and 12<br />

great-grandchildren, played<br />

netball until she was 42. She<br />

even competed against her own<br />

daughters.<br />

Clark has always found her<br />

energy outdoors in nature; a keen<br />

hiker, horse rider and gardener.<br />

She owns a remote cabin in<br />

Lewis Pass, and although is not<br />

climbing the nearby mountain<br />

heights, she still loves to wander<br />

through the beech trees.<br />

Mundy, who lives in Horotane<br />

Valley, used to work in her<br />

family’s fruit and tomato<br />

business which kept her strong<br />

and fit. When she finished up<br />

working, she decided to head to<br />

the gym. She’s been attending<br />

three times a week for the past<br />

four years.<br />

Onekawa has kept up consistent<br />

gym practice for more than 12<br />

years. She now attends Female<br />

Federation five times a week.<br />

Onekawa can do multiple<br />

push-ups, straight-backed<br />

with her knees up. She also said<br />

she can do side plank rotations<br />

and dips, and has completed<br />

200m within 15 minutes on the<br />

ski erg.<br />

Clark knows the importance of<br />

rest days. She has been attending<br />

the gym on and off since 1998,<br />

and in spite of a hip replacement<br />

CAMARADERIE: Lin Clark, Isabel Mundy and Ngaire Onekawa all attend the gym multiple<br />

times a week, incorporating cardio, strength training, Pilates and balance exercises into<br />

their practice.<br />

taking her out of the game for<br />

a while, she is building up her<br />

practice one again. Clark enjoys<br />

chin-ups, the chest press and leg<br />

press.<br />

“It’s a relief to find you’re still<br />

strong,” she said.<br />

When answering why they<br />

attended the gym, Onekawa<br />

promptly stood up from her<br />

chair. “This is why,” she said.<br />

Mundy agreed: “To keep my<br />

core strong!”<br />

Clark said: “As you get older,<br />

the physical stuff becomes<br />

terribly important and you<br />

become more aware of your body<br />

and how it works.”<br />

“Coming to the gym is a<br />

positive step to being a strong<br />

and complete person.”<br />

For Clark, getting to the gym<br />

is also important for the mental<br />

benefits. Her life passions have<br />

been education and theatre;<br />

in 2019, she was awarded the<br />

prestigious Drama New Zealand<br />

President’s Award, given to<br />

someone who has significantly<br />

contributed to the drama space<br />

over their lifetime.<br />

They all share the same goal:<br />

To keep going.<br />

There is strong camaraderie<br />

between the three women,<br />

and they love being part of<br />

the community at Female<br />

Federation.<br />

Onekawa said she gets coffee<br />

twice a week with her new found<br />

gym friends.<br />

“It’s a sisterhood here,” said<br />

Clark.<br />

Jill Kennedy, their personal<br />

trainer is 64-years-old. She<br />

only has glowing reviews of<br />

the fitness levels of the three<br />

women.<br />

“I cannot wait til I retire to<br />

be able to work out with them<br />

all.”<br />

Clark said: “We are lucky<br />

enough to be able to work out,<br />

and so we choose to make the<br />

most of this and continue to stay<br />

fit.”<br />

I am a resident of Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

and I totally agree with<br />

the proposals for all the<br />

areas outlined in your<br />

article.<br />

I use most of those<br />

roads weekly and vehicles<br />

are just travelling too fast,<br />

unsuited to the challenging<br />

and complex driving<br />

conditions.<br />

Driving behaviour has<br />

already improved on the<br />

open road sections that<br />

have had speeds reduced such as the<br />

Teddington Straight and the surrounding<br />

hillside roads between Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> and Lyttelton,<br />

However, traffic is still too fast through<br />

built up population areas such as<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong>, Little River and the<br />

I fully support the changes. However,<br />

recent changes between<br />

Cass <strong>Bay</strong> and<br />

Rapaki are completely<br />

ignored.<br />

Boy racers scream<br />

through at night, tyres<br />

squealing and loud<br />

exhausts.<br />

Sunday sees the<br />

motor-cyclists using<br />

the road as a race<br />

track.<br />

There is<br />

absolutely no point in changing the speed<br />

limits if there is no monitoring of the<br />

speed.<br />

The police seem totally disinterested in<br />

these flagrant law breakers.<br />

Until the police act strongly the excess<br />

speed will continue. – H Fraser<br />

Full steam ahead in Bill’s backyard<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

BILL STANLEY, 67, has created a<br />

model train lovers’ fantasy land in<br />

his backyard.<br />

When he and wife Maggie<br />

moved to their new home in Canterbury<br />

five years ago, Stanley saw<br />

“a blank canvas, just waiting for a<br />

garden railway layout.”<br />

He set to work, and today has<br />

eight model trains which run<br />

on more than 200m of track, set<br />

amongst a 27m diorama of buildings,<br />

settlements, fields and bridges.<br />

The trains pass through all sorts<br />

of activity amongst the Playmobil<br />

people, vehicles and buildings,<br />

including a wedding outside<br />

Lincoln Union Church, fields being<br />

harvested, and a quarry being<br />

mined.<br />

Some of the buildings, including<br />

the church, Stanley has made<br />

himself, learning first through<br />

the Canterbury Garden Railway<br />

Group of which he is a committee<br />

member, and then teaching himself<br />

along the way.<br />

The track and its impressive<br />

setting, at the couple’s home in Lincoln,<br />

is complete with a pond and<br />

real goldfish. It has been a labour of<br />

love, and one that has its origins in<br />

Stanley’s childhood.<br />

“Trains just fascinated me as a<br />

child and they still do, we have<br />

been from LA to New York by<br />

train,” he said.<br />

His grandfather William Stanley<br />

gave him a Hornby double O<br />

railway set when he was about<br />

five.<br />

William had worked on the<br />

railways, and Stanley has inherited<br />

the whistle that William used<br />

in his job, believed to be as an engineer,<br />

and keeps it on his garden<br />

railway key ring.<br />

Stanley kept the passion for<br />

trains and railways moving<br />

down the generations; he and<br />

Maggie bought their 29-year-old<br />

son Richard his first engine when<br />

he was a baby.<br />

They continued to add to the<br />

collection, and always incorporated<br />

train travel in their overseas<br />

trips. These were for professional<br />

purposes in earlier years<br />

as Stanley travelled as part of his<br />

job as a pharmaceutical company<br />

director.<br />

The trip through the United<br />

States was in the 1990s, while<br />

they also lived in Thailand for<br />

five years to 1998 and travelled<br />

extensively through Europe.<br />

“You can set your clock by the<br />

trains in Switzerland,” he said.<br />

While trains in Thailand at<br />

the time were substandard in<br />

comparison, they had been just as<br />

enjoyable to travel on as the country’s<br />

elephants and longboats.<br />

Stanley sometimes has groups<br />

come and view his backyard<br />

garden railway creation, and it is<br />

a hobby he enjoys with others in<br />

the garden railway group, which<br />

will be hosting the National<br />

Garden Railway Convention<br />

in Christchurch on Waitangi<br />

Weekend.<br />

He said setting up the train<br />

track, which runs from a purpose-built,<br />

life-size shed, takes 90<br />

minutes each time.<br />

“It’s quite a lot of work to have<br />

them running to precision, it’s<br />

quite common to have derailments,”<br />

Stanley said.<br />

Obstacles such as stones or<br />

grit on the track, or interception<br />

by creatures such as the Stanley<br />

household’s pet cats or dogs, were<br />

the cause of such frustrations.<br />

One of the biggest challenges<br />

had been securing the track in<br />

ballast that wouldn’t move when<br />

a blower is used to remove pine<br />

needles which have fallen down<br />

from nearby trees.<br />

The Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust<br />

is a non-profit organisation formed to<br />

protect one of New Zealand’s most<br />

important coastal wetlands. Each week,<br />

board members will discuss matters<br />

regarding the estuary, its rich history and<br />

what makes it unique. This week Bill<br />

Simpson writes about previous proposals<br />

to mitigate flooding at the estuary<br />

AMONG THE weird and<br />

wonderful ideas for the estuary is<br />

the concept of a dam or barrage.<br />

Such a barrier would give us<br />

control of tidal flows and cut the<br />

risk of flooding of the city and<br />

suburbs. Essentially, a “barrage”<br />

is a dam with gates.<br />

But each time the idea has<br />

cropped up it has been turned<br />

down because of the cost, financially<br />

and environmentally.<br />

ESTUARY MATTERS<br />

Dam idea to help prevent flooding quashed<br />

The chief engineer of the<br />

drainage board suggested in<br />

1963, that a barrage be built from<br />

Moncks <strong>Bay</strong> to the Southshore<br />

Spit.<br />

This would stabilise the flow<br />

of tidal water in and out of the<br />

estuary and allow dredging of<br />

the estuary channels.<br />

It would stop tidal water<br />

flowing in if there had been<br />

high rainfall and the Avon and<br />

Heathcote Rivers were running<br />

high, thus stopping flooding of<br />

housing areas when there high<br />

tides and high river flows. The<br />

estimated cost was £700,000.<br />

In true Christchurch fashion,<br />

the proposal caused much debate.<br />

Committees were formed,<br />

reports commissioned. Other<br />

ideas popped up; a Commonwealth<br />

Games rowing venue, a<br />

Sumner-to-Spit bridge, an aquatic<br />

playground.<br />

In the end, science prevailed.<br />

Canterbury University produced<br />

a 358 report The Ecology of the<br />

Avon-Heathcote Estuary in 1973.<br />

It concluded that a barrier and<br />

dredging would have detrimental<br />

effects on the biology of the<br />

estuary; in short, the estuary<br />

would be destroyed.<br />

But the idea did not die.<br />

Following the earthquakes of <strong>10</strong><br />

years ago, the city council and<br />

Canterbury Earthquake Recovery<br />

Authority staff were directed<br />

to reinvestigate the barrage<br />

concept for the same reason, to<br />

control flooding.<br />

They concluded the cost would<br />

be $3<strong>10</strong>m or more, and that other<br />

options such as strengthening<br />

stop banks would be cheaper.<br />

Let’s hope the idea has been<br />

well and truly buried.<br />

The first club building completed in 1892. Scows and 30 footers sailing in Moncks <strong>Bay</strong>, circa 1913.<br />

Yacht club’s century-plus of sailing<br />

PROTECTED BY the rugged<br />

hills, known today as Balmoral<br />

Hill, to Englishman J L Monck<br />

the picturesque and sheltered<br />

bay that now bears his name<br />

must have appeared the perfect<br />

spot for establishing a sailing<br />

club. And in 1891, that’s just<br />

what he did.<br />

Bringing together a group<br />

of like-minded people, Monck<br />

set up the Christchurch Sailing<br />

Club, becoming the club’s first<br />

Commodore. In the early days<br />

the fleet was comprised of large<br />

vessels, up to 24ft, with crews<br />

of two to five keen sailors, who<br />

competed against each other in<br />

regular yacht races.<br />

The early 1900s saw the<br />

introduction of power boats to<br />

the fleet, and in 1906, the first<br />

two-level clubhouse was built.<br />

The club’s name was changed to<br />

the Christchurch Yacht Club in<br />

1935, then in 1938 the present<br />

clubhouse was built; however,<br />

age and earthquake damage have<br />

now seen plans to rebuild the<br />

clubhouse being developed.<br />

One of the oldest yacht clubs<br />

in New Zealand, the Christchurch<br />

Yacht Club has operated<br />

continuously since its establishment,<br />

even during the two world<br />

wars.<br />

It has also proved to be a<br />

breeding ground for international<br />

success. Club members<br />

Peter Mander and Jack Cropp<br />

won gold medals at the 1956<br />

Olympic Games in Melbourne,<br />

the first time New Zealand had<br />

entered a yachting team, then<br />

at the Barcelona Games in 1992<br />

club members Leslie Egnot and<br />

Jan Shearer won silver medals in<br />

SUMMER SANDAL SALE<br />

Cropp with wind in their<br />

sails in Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

the 470 class. Numerous other<br />

national and world titles have<br />

been won by club members over<br />

the years.<br />

However, you don’t have to be<br />

world-class to enjoy the sport of<br />

sailing – anyone, of any age, can<br />

participate, and as the current<br />

Commodore Layton Martin says,<br />

it’s certainly not an elite sport.<br />

“People can buy second-hand<br />

yachts, and the club also has<br />

a selection of yachts of different<br />

classes that are available for<br />

members to use,” Martin said.<br />

For young people starting<br />

out, the club runs learn-to-sail<br />

programmes, which are designed<br />

to get them out on the water to<br />

learn the various facets of sailing,<br />

at the same time gaining confidence<br />

and decision-making skills<br />

as they move through a range of<br />

classes.<br />

“The juniors start off in the<br />

Optimist, then they move on to<br />

the P-Class yachts, which require<br />

Sailors putting their skills into practice.<br />

greater skills and understanding<br />

of wind direction, after which<br />

they move on to the 12ft Starlings,”<br />

Martin said.<br />

“Our experienced and youngminded<br />

coaches are out on the<br />

water with the youngsters to support<br />

and guide them, and teach<br />

them skills such as getting back<br />

on the boat if it capsizes.”<br />

The club’s range of programmes<br />

for junior members<br />

also includes a two-night camp<br />

at Takamatua.<br />

“The junior sailing programmes<br />

CYC also promotes and hosts<br />

programmes, too, mostly attracting<br />

the 30-50 age group and<br />

giving people the opportunity to<br />

CYC has a strong fleet of the<br />

one-manned Zephyr and Laser<br />

class of yachts, which the senior<br />

members sail and are the preferred<br />

choices for competitive sailing.<br />

“The club is particularly strong<br />

in these,” Martin said.<br />

CYC holds regular sailing<br />

events and on January 31, it put<br />

on a very successful family fun<br />

day, in which other club sailors<br />

and local children took part.<br />

“It was about kids having fun<br />

and getting on the water we had<br />

great feedback from parents,”<br />

Martin said.<br />

Said Mitre <strong>10</strong> MEGA Ferrymead<br />

marketing manager<br />

Miles Andrews: “The store has<br />

been supporting the Christchurch<br />

Yacht Club for a number<br />

of years and it was great to see<br />

plenty of smiling children on the<br />

water at the family fun day on<br />

Sunday.<br />

“The club’s learn-to-sail programme<br />

is an excellent starting<br />

point for people young and old<br />

looking to develop their sailing<br />

skills or simply gain confidence<br />

in the water. The club has such<br />

a welcoming group of members,<br />

which is a testament to their<br />

long-standing history in our<br />

community,” Andrews said.<br />

Said Martin: “We are very<br />

proud of our club and its long<br />

history. We encourage people to<br />

come down and give yachting<br />

a go. Our members range in<br />

age from eight to 80-plus, so it’s<br />

never too soon or late.”<br />

CONTENT MARKETING<br />

The billion-dollar screen opportunity<br />

ChristchurchNZ <br />

is helping identify opportunities for people to reskill and move into other sectors<br />

• By Bree Loverich<br />

FILM AND television<br />

production is one of New<br />

Zealand’s largest export<br />

industries.<br />

How big? It’s worth $3.5 billion<br />

to the New Zealand economy<br />

every year.<br />

Huge right? And it’s only<br />

getting bigger as people consume<br />

more and more content<br />

on streaming platforms, with<br />

growth fuelled by the global<br />

pandemic unemployed. and more time spent<br />

in the living room.<br />

ChristchurchNZ is committed<br />

to securing a larger share of this<br />

industry and is home to Screen<br />

CanterburyNZ, the regional film<br />

office, whose goal is to attract<br />

more – school productions, leavers, and tertiary support<br />

screen business development and<br />

local content creation.<br />

We work with content creators,<br />

service providers, infrastructure<br />

investors and the education sector<br />

to plan for growth, and collaborate<br />

widely to fill gaps, de-<br />

Māori and industry.<br />

velop capabilities and attract new<br />

business to the city. There is huge<br />

potential here for screen production,<br />

and we come to work every<br />

day to fulfil this potential.<br />

To date, Screen CanterburyNZ<br />

has serviced inquiries from<br />

small to large productions of all<br />

formats, as well as supported<br />

business inquiries and studio<br />

infrastructure projects.<br />

Canterbury has been the backdrop<br />

to numerous productions,<br />

most recently Netflix’s Letter<br />

to the King, Only Cloud Knows,<br />

Disney’s Wrinkle in Time and<br />

Mulan.<br />

However, only a small percentage<br />

of market share in feature<br />

film and television currently<br />

comes to the region. Disney’s<br />

Higher unemployment impacts<br />

more significantly on those in<br />

lower skilled roles and our<br />

vulnerable populations – Māori;<br />

Pasifika; young people not in<br />

employment, education or<br />

training; and our long-term<br />

And what are we doing?<br />

We are supporting the journey<br />

for labour market priority groups<br />

graduates, NEET (young people<br />

not in employment, education or<br />

training), impacted workers,<br />

To ensure work isn’t duplicated,<br />

tor in Canterbury<br />

and to identify gaps, we are<br />

mapping the support available<br />

from iwi, central and local<br />

government agencies, our<br />

education providers, charitable<br />

trusts, and other support groups.<br />

Impact projects can then be<br />

delivered to provide support<br />

where needed.<br />

It is critical we ensure our<br />

community has access to the<br />

information they need, and is<br />

aware of the help available.<br />

ChristchurchNZ is developing<br />

regional information resources<br />

and working to ensure this gets<br />

into the hands of those who<br />

need it.<br />

Battle scene from Disney’s Mulan, filmed in Canterbury.<br />

Mulan, directed by Kiwi Niki<br />

Caro, was partly filmed in Canterbury.<br />

The $200 million film<br />

brought an estimated $7 million<br />

to the Canterbury economy, but<br />

with stronger services and studio<br />

infrastructure the region could<br />

have benefited from a larger percentage<br />

of this production.<br />

James Cameron and Amazon<br />

are currently filming some of the<br />

largest productions in motion<br />

picture history on our shores,<br />

and there has never been more<br />

attention on the country as a<br />

Covid-free location.<br />

These multi-year productions<br />

will support the growth of<br />

the national industry, and put<br />

Christchurch and Canterbury in<br />

the perfect position to provide<br />

capacity for the national industry<br />

to grow and meet unprecedented<br />

global content demand.<br />

One of our big wins from the<br />

last 12 months is the creation of<br />

the Screen Protocols, a guidelines<br />

document making it easier<br />

for productions to film here, and<br />

we’ve changed local policy to<br />

We are also developing a<br />

Regional Workforce Plan that<br />

identifies the skills available and<br />

needed now and in the future.<br />

This plan will inform central<br />

government investment and<br />

policy in education, immigration<br />

and community interventions;<br />

and will enable us to better<br />

understand what skills<br />

Christchurch’s future economy<br />

will require. That in turn will<br />

allow us to work with education<br />

providers to ensure the right<br />

courses are offered.<br />

In times of recession we generally<br />

see an increase in people<br />

choosing to study.<br />

This is an opportunity to upskill<br />

Canterbury’s relatively<br />

poorly-educated workforce for<br />

our future economy, to generate<br />

more and better jobs, to increase<br />

productivity, and to raise living<br />

standards and wellbeing.<br />

make it easier to build production<br />

studios in our city.<br />

Home to rugged mountains<br />

and wide-open plains, endless<br />

coastlines, and a pool of talented<br />

filmmakers, we are an ideal base<br />

for productions to shoot whatever<br />

they are looking for. We’re<br />

also serviced by an international<br />

airport and the South Island’s<br />

largest seaport, as well as New<br />

Zealand’s newest and secondlargest<br />

commercial centre.<br />

There is a huge opportunity for<br />

Christchurch to increase its market<br />

share in film and television,<br />

but our focus is much wider than<br />

that. Screen includes high-value<br />

jobs in AR, VR, VFX, animation<br />

and gaming, and opportunities<br />

exist not only for filmmakers, but<br />

for our tech and gaming sector,<br />

as well as traditional industries<br />

like manufacturing, engineering<br />

and construction.<br />

These industries provide the<br />

technicians and experts needed<br />

behind the scenes.<br />

The screen industry also uses<br />

We are supporting Ngāi Tahu’s<br />

development of an iwi skills hub<br />

that will create stronger pathways<br />

for young Māori into tertiary<br />

education and skilled jobs.<br />

Among other projects, we are<br />

working with education partners<br />

and mana whenua to increase<br />

aspiration and participation of<br />

students in low-decile schools in<br />

future-focused tertiary study that<br />

will lead to careers in<br />

high-growth areas. We are<br />

seeking to future-proof<br />

Canterbury’s labour marke<br />

- we know how vital it is to<br />

new jobs to ensure people<br />

Heart attack survivor returns<br />

to ocean for Akaroa swim<br />

MARK BONE should be dead.<br />

He should have died in<br />

Melbourne two years ago from<br />

a cardiac arrest that left him<br />

without oxygen for 20 minutes as<br />

emergency workers scrambled to<br />

bring him back to life.<br />

“Normally they stop after six<br />

minutes but for some reason<br />

they kept working on me – I’m<br />

not sure why,” Bone said in a<br />

disarmingly calm way.<br />

“I was pretty fit. I used to run<br />

ultramarathons so I guess they<br />

realised I was pretty fit and there<br />

were a lot of ambulance and<br />

fire crew there and once they’ve<br />

made the effort to turn up, they<br />

want you to survive.”<br />

He did, but it has been a slow<br />

return to normality for the<br />

52-year-old wastewater engineer<br />

who spent a week in a coma<br />

before eventually returning<br />

home to Christchurch.<br />

He doesn’t run these days,<br />

unsure if his heart will cope<br />

with the pressure and confident<br />

his wife, Jane, doesn’t want him<br />

disappearing into the bush for a<br />

five hour run. But he does swim<br />

and will return to the Banana<br />

Boat New Zealand Ocean Swim<br />

Series on <strong>February</strong> 20 when he<br />

again tackles the Generation<br />

Homes La Grande Swim, a 5km<br />

cross harbour swim from Wainui<br />

to Akaroa.<br />

“I want to do it in under two<br />

hours,” Bone said. “Last year the<br />

bay was like a washing machine<br />

and it was a really tough swim<br />

and I finished in over two hours.<br />

This time I want to be well<br />

under.”<br />

Event director Scott Rice<br />

said it is people like Bone who<br />

make the Banana Boat New<br />

Zealand Ocean Swim Series so<br />

special.<br />

“Watching how people<br />

overcome adversity in their lives<br />

and how our series plays a small<br />

role in that is humbling and<br />

inspiring,” Rice said.<br />

Bone knows he is lucky to be<br />

alive, let alone up to swimming<br />

5km, and admits it is only now<br />

that he realises how big an<br />

impact his cardiac arrest has had<br />

on his life.<br />

“I did suffer a significant brain<br />

injury from the amount of time I<br />

was without oxygen. I’d thought<br />

I was <strong>10</strong>0 per cent (soon after he<br />

was allowed to return home) but<br />

now I know I was nowhere near<br />

it,” he said.<br />

He knows now he had trouble<br />

processing information, that his<br />

memory was poor and that “I<br />

didn’t know what I was doing to<br />

be honest”.<br />

His employer, Hynds, kept<br />

him on the books for as long<br />

as they could but he was made<br />

redundant during the Covid<br />

crisis last year and now works for<br />

himself designing rural domestic<br />

wastewater systems.<br />

Last year’s Generation Homes<br />

La Grande Swim was Bone’s<br />

first at such a long distance.<br />

“I’d swum 3km in training and<br />

thought I would be okay adding<br />

the extra 2km on, on the day, but<br />

it was a leap of faith really. This<br />

time I’m a lot more confident.”<br />

The Generation Homes La<br />

Grande Swim also offers a 2km<br />

swim in Akaroa <strong>Bay</strong>, a 750m<br />

swim and the Banana Boat<br />

CRV still a force to be reckoned with<br />

HONDA ISN’T going to be left<br />

out of the main game.<br />

The mid-size sport utility<br />

vehicle market is crowded and<br />

tempting models just keep getting<br />

added into the mix, Mazda’s new<br />

CX-30 has just landed, Toyota’s<br />

RAV4 is ever present and there’s<br />

a host of others from most<br />

mainstream manufacturers.<br />

But Honda keeps ticking away<br />

with its CRV, and sales of it are<br />

healthy, which has a lot to do<br />

with the upgrades that have<br />

kept it fresh through the years<br />

and for <strong>2021</strong> there are further<br />

enhancements and refinements,<br />

along with a greater emphasis on<br />

safety across the range.<br />

This evaluation focuses on<br />

the five-seater, range-topping<br />

Sport Premium that also has<br />

four-wheel-drive mechanicals.<br />

Interestingly, all CRV models now<br />

get the 1.5-litre turbocharged<br />

engine that was only available<br />

previously in a few select models.<br />

The naturally-aspirated 2-litre<br />

engine has been dropped, but<br />

that’s not a bad thing the 1498cc<br />

turbo is a beauty in terms of<br />

refinement and economy, and it<br />

has power outputs that match the<br />

concept of CRV.<br />

Honda has also made some<br />

engineering alterations to make<br />

the CRV more driveable, notably<br />

steering response and stability,<br />

the latter contributing to a solid,<br />

secure feel on the road, the<br />

CRV feels well-attached and<br />

communicative.<br />

More importantly, the majority<br />

of buyers will be interested<br />

in the user-friendly elements<br />

that have been built into the<br />

newcomer. There’s a increased<br />

focus on family travel and<br />

what we carry with us, the<br />

air conditioning system has<br />

been improved, the USB ports<br />

up-front are illuminated and<br />

relocated for convenience and<br />

are fast charging, while a wireless<br />

charging pad is now included.<br />

You’d expect nothing less from<br />

Honda, it is a people-friendly<br />

car builder and the CRV’s<br />

reputation has made it a class<br />

leader for many years, today it is<br />

still commanding sales, keeping<br />

it near the top end of the leader<br />

board.<br />

The Sport Premium model has<br />

all the kit you’d ever need, and<br />

at $51,000 it is extending to the<br />

price of premium models but<br />

it is part of a value range that<br />

HONDA CRV: Upgrades and enhancements for <strong>2021</strong>.<br />

starts at $39,990 and includes<br />

four choices. In-between there’s<br />

a Sport 7 (seven seats) at $47,990<br />

and AWD Touring at $43,990.<br />

The Sport Premium wants<br />

for nothing, it has full leather with<br />

electric front seats (also heated),<br />

satellite navigation, keyless entry<br />

and ignition, electric sunroof,<br />

electric tailgate, and 19in wheels,<br />

just to name some of the features<br />

that give you an indication of<br />

where it sits in the market.<br />

Drive is through a sevenstep<br />

continuously variable<br />

transmission, the engine and<br />

gearbox work seamlessly<br />

together, there is little to hinder<br />

engine power, and response to<br />

accelerator request is instant<br />

and fluid. There’s no suggestion<br />

of turbo lag anywhere, and<br />

movement is lively and<br />

unyielding.<br />

In terms of performance the<br />

CRV is rated at 140kW and<br />

240Nm, the latter figure available<br />

all of the way from 2000rpm to<br />

5000rpm almost meeting the point<br />

of peak power at 5500rpm, they are<br />

the key ingredients when it comes<br />

to the constant supply of energy.<br />

In Sport Premium form there<br />

are paddle-shifters which will<br />

offer the driver some input into<br />

how the CRV gains momentum,<br />

or for when speed needs to be<br />

chiselled off, they are a great way<br />

to enhance engine braking when<br />

slowing for a corner or a long<br />

descent through the hills.<br />

The CRV is also a well-handling<br />

SUV, it feels encouraging from<br />

behind the wheel. That’s the<br />

benefit of what all-wheel-drive is<br />

all about, even though the CRV<br />

is effectively a front-driver, power<br />

is directed rearwards if grip is<br />

threatened or sensors dictate that<br />

power rearwards is demanded.<br />

Nothing has been compromised<br />

in the area where Honda excels as<br />

• Price – Honda CRV Sport<br />

Premium, $51,000<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4635mm; width, 1855mm;<br />

height, 1689mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

four-wheel-drive,<br />

1498cc, 140kW, 240Nm,<br />

seven-step automatic.<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-<strong>10</strong>0km/h, 8.5sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 7.4l/<strong>10</strong>0km<br />

a car maker – fuel usage.<br />

The CRV is rated with a<br />

7.4l/<strong>10</strong>0km combined cycle<br />

average. During my time with<br />

the test car it was constantly<br />

listing an 8.1/<strong>10</strong>0km average with<br />

5l/<strong>10</strong>0km showing on the readout<br />

at a steady <strong>10</strong>0km/h, the engine<br />

largely unstressed working over at<br />

just 1900rpm.<br />

Not only has Honda kept the<br />

CRV fresh mechanically, it has<br />

specification levels that will<br />

constantly tempt, there’s also<br />

a refresh cosmetically just to<br />

keep up with modern design<br />

trends. The latter aren’t quite so<br />

noticeable but they do enhance<br />

appeal.<br />

That’s something Honda has<br />

been doing for 23 years with CRV,<br />

and it’s a formula that has been<br />

very successful and serves to<br />

prove that ideas and technology<br />

just keep advancing. Today’s CRV<br />

is state-of the art, and represents<br />

all that a family car buyer would<br />

want.

Consultation on the draft<br />

Canterbury Regional Land<br />

Transport Plan <strong>2021</strong>-31<br />

This is a Public Consultation in accordance with<br />

section 82 of the Local Government Act 2002.<br />

The Regional Transport Committee of the<br />

Canterbury Regional Council (Environment<br />

Canterbury) invites submissions on the draft<br />

Regional Land Transport Plan <strong>2021</strong>-31.<br />

The draft Plan outlines an investment strategy<br />

for developing the region’s land transport<br />

network over <strong>10</strong> years and we are consulting<br />

to ensure the proposal is in line with the<br />

aspirations of the Canterbury community and<br />

users of the network.<br />

The Plan sets out a vision and strategic<br />

objectives, priorities for investment, and<br />

a programme of transport activities to be<br />

undertaken by Road Controlling Authorities.<br />

It introduces headline targets for road safety,<br />

transport emissions and moving more freight<br />

by rail.<br />
