Romance at the hot pools

• By Susan Sandys

WHEN MARK Thompson’s

grandson told him to ask

out a woman he met at New

Brighton’s hot pools, he decided

to take the plunge.

Thompson and Robyn

McEwen had become talking

buddies during their regular

visits to He Puna Taimoana hot

pools, which celebrates its first

year of operation on Sunday.

Thompson, 61, said when he

first saw McEwen, 56, at the

pools, she was bathing nearby.

But he was not going to make

eye contact or idle chat, as she

was with a group of friends.

He was happy to see her again

on a following visit, and this

time she was on her own. On

this and following visits the

pair chatted, and Thompson

decided to take things further

after some wise words from his

AVERAGE temperatures in

Canterbury could rise by 1.5

deg C by 2040 and 3.5 deg C by

2090 if climate change is not

responded to.

These are some of the findings

of a National Institute of Water

and Atmospheric Research report,

prepared for Environment

Canterbury last year, on climate

change projections for Canterbury.

It comes as community leaders

gather tomorrow at an ECan

event to discuss, building resilience

against climate change.

Federated Farmers North Canterbury

spokeswoman Caroline

Amyes said farmers across Canterbury

are already dealing with

the impacts of climate change,

with Banks Peninsula experiencing

its worst drought in 25 years.

“At the moment, we’re in the

middle of a drought, which is

really tough. It means that our

farmers are having to ensure that

they’re got more resilience in the

system. How do you conserve

more feed at different times of the

year, so that you can buffer that

drier period?

PHASING TRAFFIC lights

within the city’s 30 km/h zones

appears an effective regulatory

measure for lead-footed

motorists, while police rarely

issue infringement notices for

speeding drivers.

Although enforcement may

not be a deterrent given statistics

released by police, Steffan

Thomas, the city council’s

transport operations manager,

said coordinating traffic lights in

some areas of the zone applied

the brakes.

THe lights were phased to cater

for vehicles travelling at 30km/h.

“THis has a big impact on

making it unattractive for

vehicles to travel much faster

than the speed limit as they miss

the block-to-block co-ordination

of the traffic signals, resulting in

the need for drivers to constantly

stop and start,” Thomas said.

“THis limits the opportunity

to gain excessive speeds and

encourages compliance with the

posted speed limit.”

While the city council

has been able to determine

speed limits on roads in their

jurisdiction since 2003, police

are in charge of enforcement.

Police would not reveal the

highest speed recorded in

the 30km/h zone, fearing it

would encourage thrill-seeking

motorists to set a new record.

Since the zones were

introduced in 2016, there have

been 278 infringement notices

issued for exceeding the speed

limit.

More than half of the

infringements (141) were

recorded in 2016 before a lull in

2017 (8), 2018 (12) and 2019 (10).

Enforcement intensified last

year with 107 infringements

detected for the calendar year.

chance to develop a place that

better aligned with the YMCA’s

value of giving back.

In the last seven months,

the building has undergone an

aesthetic makeover, including

new double glazing and

insulation.

A key change was making

kitchens and bathrooms

more accessible for people

with disabilities, as many

visitors needed close access to

Christchurch Hospital.

Speedsters curbed by

synchronised traffic lights

In 2019 the city council

expanded the central city

30km/h zone to include St

Asaph St, despite the majority of

737 public submissions railing

against the limit being reduced.

Montreal St on the oneway

system produced the

highest number of speeding

infringements recorded from

2016 to last year: 30.

Ferry Rd (28), Wainoni Rd

(26), Sumner’s Marriner St (22)

and Tuam St (17) make up the

city’s top five locations.

Although the 30km/h zones are

unpopular with some motorists

Thomas insisted they were

necessary, and effective.

“A 30km/h speed significantly

improves the chance of surviving

a crash for all road users,

including pedestrians and

cyclists,” he said.

Figures indicated reported

injury crashes had reduced 25

per cent in the 2-1/2 years after

A MAN arrested for allegedly

stabbing his neighbour to death

after an early-morning row over

loud music told a police officer

“that guy didn’t deserve to die”

and added, “Death row, do me a

favour.”

Tristan Ross Locke, 31, denies

murdering neighbour Mark

Cowling, 44, on September 6 in

Edgeware last year and is standing

trial at the High Court in

Christchurch.

Locke doesn’t dispute stabbing

Cowling, and that the injury led

to his death.

But his lawyer Kirsten Gray

says it “doesn’t necessarily make

it murder” and the Crown must

prove Locke’s state of mind, or his

intention, at the time of the incident,

beyond reasonable doubt.

On day three of the trial yesterday,

the jury heard from Detective

Michael Henderson-Rautera

who took notes of Locke’s comments

while he was in custody

hours after the incident.

He informed him at 4.27am

- less than two hours after the

altercation – that Cowling had

died from his injuries.

Henderson-Rautera told the

court that Locke responded by

saying, “Oh wow, savage. F***”.

He then arrested him for murder

and read him his rights.

Asked if he understood that he

was under arrest, Locke allegedly

replied: “I’m going to be a New

Zealand resident” and “I’m going

to be here for a very long time.”

Locke told the police officer

that he was intoxicated and had

been for the last week. But

Henderson-Rauter observed that

Locke walked without issues, did

not appear intoxicated, and was

not slurring his words.

Locke allegedly said his neighbour

kept turning off his power

and that he wanted a lawyer.

Accompanying him on a toilet

break, the detective noted Locke

saying: “That guy didn’t deserve

it.”

Locke later allegedly said he

was “pretty screwed” and that he

couldn’t be “put to death in this

country” which was “probably a

good thing.”

While his fingernail clippings

were being taken for DNA

samples, Locke allegedly said:

“Well, I’m f***** aren’t I. But so is

the guy who is dead now. We all

make sick jokes.”

He later allegedly added:

“How did I even do that? F******

stupid” and “death row, do me a

favour.”

The Crown earlier said that

Cowling, his partner Rebecca

McMaster, and their young child

had been living in a block of five

flats in Edgeware, when Locke

moved in last June.

WHY THE MARVEL

HEALTH SCREENING

IS AN IDEAL WOF

FOR OVER 60S

As we grow older,

especially over the age

of 60, specific health

problems may become

prevalent.

These problems are

generally due to the

wear and tear the body

undergoes over time.

The good news is that

such health problems

are preventable, and we

can slow down their occurrence.

Joint and Bone problems are well-known

problems that occur with age due to the

degradation of the connective tissue.

Cardiovascular diseases are typically caused

by the narrowing of the arteries, leading

to high blood pressure, heart attacks, and

strokes. Neurodegenerative diseases such

as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s also tend to

occur later in life. The underlying cause of

age-related diseases is chronic inflammation.

Inflammation is not a bad thing at all. It is

the body’s response to injury. The problem

is when that response becomes persistent,

leading to chronic inflammation that causes

damage to organs.

The Marvel

Health Scan is

ideal for health

screening in older

people because

it thoroughly

examines all body

organs, including

the brain, heart,

kidneys, joints,

prostate, etc. The

scan can read the

many causes of chronic inflammation in the

body, including contaminants, microbes,

food allergens, nutrient deficiencies and

many other factors such as the state of health

of all organs. In addition to examining the

internal organs, a body composition analysis

is performed to look at the physical body. The

body composition looks at the muscle and fat

mass, metabolic rate, hydration, among other

parameters that also help shed more light on

your state of health.

After your scan, our doctors and specialists

will review the reports with you via video or

telephone and make recommendations that

support the body’s healing process.

Cowling’s household, and

other residents in the block,

complained that Locke listened to

music at high volumes, with the

first noise complaint coming on

July 9.

Up to the day Cowling died,

there had been a total of 21 noise

complaints.

One neighbour, Enda Lynam,

gave evidence yesterday to say the

music coming from Locke’s flat

after he moved in was “horrific...

to the point you could feel it”.

Locke’s landlord Braidie Wilson

had even been contacted by

frustrated neighbours and she

had asked him to keep the noise

down, which he had agreed to do.

“Tensions had been high for a

while,” Crown prosecutor William

Taffs said.

A few weeks before the fatal

incident, Cowling had gone to

Locke’s house and they had argued

over “loud music”, the court

heard.

On September 5 last year,

Cowling and his family got

home about 4-5pm and allegedly

heard Locke already playing loud

music.

Noise control would be called

four times that evening. It’s alleged

that Locke would turn the

music down when noise control

showed up – but resume once

they’d left.

Security officer George

Dimitru was called out that

night. From outside the flats, he

encountered “heavy rock, metal...

very powerful”.

He served a notice on Locke

before moving on to the next job.

But the noise allegedly continued

and a fed-up Cowling

accessed the fuse box which serviced

the whole block of flats and

cut the power to Locke’s house

three times.

On the third occasion, at

2.25am, the Crown alleges that

Locke took a knife and stabbed

Cowling in the chest, causing a

10-12cm fatal wound that injured

his heart and lung.

Locke phoned 111 and he was

arrested at the scene, with a knife

found on the path outside.

The emergency calls were

where the address was, he became

Charlie ready to leave the coop

Unwanted

animals

swamp

SPCA

• By Matt Slaughter

FOUR MONTHS ago, Charlie

the rooster was abandoned.

Nearly 120 days after being

found at a Rolleston early

childhood centre and taken to

the SPCA in Hornby, he is still

looking for a loving family to

take him in.

He has made himself at home

at the SPCA, but it is now time

for him to leave the coop.

The centre’s Natasha Sutton

said Charlie is sociable and

would make a great pet.

“For a rooster, he’s really quite

sweet. He’s quite friendly, he’ll

kind of come and see you when

you go and feed him.

“He’ll come over and say hello

and wait for his feed.”

Sutton said Charlie is well

behaved and does not crow as

loudly as some may expect.

Charlie is just one of 289

animals in need of owners at the

SPCA’s centre.

The centre has about 150 more

animals than usual for this time

of year.

It has 19 horses waiting for

homes. During normal times,

there are usually “one or two,”

Sutton said.

Said Sutton: “At the moment,

unfortunately, with the drought

that we’ve had and lack of feed,

people are struggling to feed

their horses, they’re getting

really skinny and we’re getting a

lot more in.”

She said there are 200 cats at

the centre and this is potentially

because last breeding season was

longer due to warmer weather.

The future of the animals

at the centre is safe and all

will stay there until they

find homes.

Pier new home for tsunami warnings

WARNING: After years of planning and preparation, Christchurch’s

new tsunami monitoring gauge at New Brighton Pier is operational.

The gauge will give advance warning of tsunamis, like the May 1960

tsunami (right), which saw water pour into the dry dock at Lyttelton.

A NEW GAUGE to detect

imminent tsunamis installed at

the New Brighton Pier is now

operational following years of

planning and preparation.

The former gauge in Sumner

has been soldiering on, in spite

of being buried by large amounts

of rock and debris that fell into

the ocean during the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

It needed to be replaced

because GNS Science staff could

not access the site to service the

tsunami gauge.

“It is impressive that the current

gauge is still operational

after all these years,” said GNS

Science remote infrastructure

operations co-ordinator Kris

O’Brien.

“Rocks that have been reworked

by the ocean around

the Christchurch coastline have

broken up and washed ashore,

burying our current gauge’s

protective covering.”

Tsunami gauge data is

collected by two pressure sensors

at each site so that there is a

backup in case one fails.

They need to be regularly

maintained, but this has not

happened at the current site for

years.

“We are unsure of the remaining

lifespan of the current sensors,

and so the need to choose

a new site was important for our

tsunami monitoring network,”

said O’Brien.

New Brighton Pier was chosen

as the new site location for many

reasons, including its distance

from the shore (where it will

be immune to rock build up),

its useful exposed location to

record a tsunami, ease of access

to service the equipment, and

the desire to maintain tsunami

monitoring capabilities in

Christchurch.

The tsunami gauge uses pressure

sensors and measures sea

lating a water height. It confirms

the occurrence of a tsunami and

can help to forecast and alert

other regions of what they might

expect. It is designed to capture

a large level change over a short

timeframe.

The install was similar to other

wharf sites that have been built

before, but each site has its challenges.

A lot of design work went into

planning the brackets (that were

specially rolled to fit the pier leg)

and steel pipe that houses the

cabling.

in the New Brighton Library.

Due to the challenging location,

the help of abseilers and

divers were needed to complete

the install, which only took two

days.

The site is part of Land

Information NZ’s network of 18

tsunami gauge sites around New

Zealand’s coast.

GNS Science maintains and

monitors these sites, and reports

its data on the GeoNet website.

The old site will continue to

operate for several months to

line up data with the new site,

Christchurch connection to secret

Victor Sharp developed

a well-known passion

for amateur radio

and electronics

when growing up in

Christchurch, but once

World War 2 broke out

he metaphorically flew

under the radar as a

member of the ultrasecretive

Z-Special

Unit. One of few New

Zealanders to serve in

the Australian-based

special forces unit in

south-east Asia, the

98-year-old died 11

days ago. Chris Barclay

reports

STAFF SERGEANT Victor

Ernest Edwin Sharp’s entry with

the Auckland War Museum

online Cenotaph is scant in detail,

a fitting reflection of his army

service during World War 2.

There is no photo attached.

The brief record indicates he

was living with his parents at 31

Gayhurst Rd, Dallington, when

he enlisted after working in civilian

life as a radio serviceman.

Sharp, according to the Cenotaph

record, joined the 2nd New

Zealand Expeditionary Force in

1944.

He was also listed as a signaller

with Headquarters, 3rd New

Zealand Divisional Signals,

though military historian

Christopher Pugsley could not

find Sharp recorded in the Headquarters

and Communications

history published by AH and

AW Reed in 1947.

“It’s a very murky unit that

one. They were a very interesting

group and as I say, the history is

a bit murky,” added Royal New

Zealand Returned and Services’

Association national president

B.J. Clark.

Ultimately, a eulogy delivered

by his son David shed more light

on Sharp’s wartime experience

as the 98-year-old was mourned,

celebrated and farewelled

in Christchurch last Friday.

Sergeant Ross Yorkstone from

the New Zealand Army band

performed The Last Post.

Sharp, service number 446826,

died peacefully while surrounded

by family members on May 16

at Ultimate Care Rose Court in

Somerfield.

His death notice in The Press

provided the first indication

Sharp was not a rank and file

staff sergeant with its reference

to “Z” Special Unit.

Victor’s youngest child

Jonathan first told mourners his

father had been expecting to ship

out to the Middle East in the

winter of 1944.

COMBAT READY: Victor Sharp was expecting to ship out

to the Middle East. Instead he was hand-picked to join

Australia’s Z-Special Unit, where he honed his combat

skills on Queensland’s Fraser Island.

“A suntanned, fit-looking

captain arrived at Trentham and

addressed all the men in groups,

asking for volunteers in three

categories – radio operating/

maintenance, navigation and

diesel engine maintenance. Beyond

this he wouldn’t elaborate.”

Sharp’s was one of eight

names crossed out on the

troopship manifest, he instead

took a train to Auckland and

then a Catalina flying boat to

Melbourne.

“It was all hush-hush. They

spent time on Fraser Island and

various places in Australia training

in hand-to-hand combat,

paddling in little canvas kayaks,

learning explosives and the Malay

language,” Jonathan Sharp

said.

“This was his introduction to

the Z-Special Unit.”

Predominately made up of

Australians, the reconnaissance

and sabotage unit carried out 81

covert operations in the southwest

Pacific theatre, including

raids on Japanese shipping in

Singapore.

One of these raids, Operation

Rimau, resulted in the deaths

of 23 commandos in July 1945

either in action or by execution

via beheading after capture.

squad operating behind enemy lines

Sharp’s oldest son said his

father rarely spoke of his time

with the unit as one of 22 New

Zealanders. Four were killed

while on active service.

“Growing up I knew dad had

been in a submarine and he used

to sleep by torpedoes,” David

Sharp explained.

“After World War 2 those who

were in it (the unit) were required

to commit to secrecy for 30 years.

“It was only in later years that

dad felt free to talk about it a bit

more. Growing up I would have

been both amazed and horrified

at the types of things dad was

trained to do.

“I knew he was good with boats

and was very athletic. He tried

to teach us how to vault over

fences on the run. I now realise

his training included many other

things … the use of sabotage

explosives, the various types of

swift and silent combat.”

Cyanide tablets were issued as

an alternative to capture by the

Japanese.

DEADLY OPERATION: Members of the Z-Special Unit force selected for the doomed

Operation Rimau in Singapore row away from the submarine, HMS Porpoise.

Victor Sharp would not dwell

on his clandestine operations in

the latter stages of World War

2, though the submarine he was

travelling in was attacked by

Japanese pilots after an operation

off the Sarawak (Borneo) coast

was abandoned in January, 1945.

The sea was so shallow, diving

beneath the surface was no place

to hide as the submarine was still

visible from the air,” David Sharp

said.

The contingent eventually

transferred to an American submarine

bound for Fremantle, a

journey complicated by Sharp

contracting yellow fever.

He was scheduled to go on

another operation in August,

1945 but the atomic bombings of

Hiroshima and Nagasaki ended

hostilities.

David Sharp also paid tribute

to the other New Zealanders who

served in the Z-Special Unit.

“Many of them didn’t return

and because of secrecy many families

never received information

as to what happened and where

their loved ones were.

“Along with our dad, we would

like to honour all those who

served, the danger they faced

and the sacrifices they made in

defence of the freedom of our

country,” he said.

For several years the New

Zealand contingent received no

formal recognition, though in

2006 Sharp was presented with

a certificate of appreciation from

the Australian government.

Sharp returned to Christchurch

after the war and worked in

a radio business run by another

Z-Special Unit veteran, Graham

Greenwood.

He was always interested in

amateur radio and obtained his

licence in 1939, call sign ZL3DO.

Sharp’s first job was as a radio

repairer in New Regent St and

soon after World War 2 broke out

he was called into the army as an

18-year-old.

England-born Sharp married

Noeline, a former schoolmate

at Linwood North School, in

1949. Their 67-year-old union

ended when Noeline died five

years ago.

Although Victor and Noeline

enjoyed exploring New Zealand

in later life, daughter Susanna

said the family also visited Fraser

Island, to see where dad honed

his combat skills.

“It has been very fascinating

learning more of this,” she said.

“I don’t remember dad talking

much about his army life when

he was young. He said he was in

the army and had to be very fit.”

Victor Sharp is survived by

his sister Joy, four children, 14

grandchildren and 11 greatgrandchildren.

Racing clamps down

on abusive behaviour

• By Chris Barclay

A CODE OF conduct aimed at

eradicating a range of abusive

behaviour targeting harness

racing participants from within

the industry is taking shape.

While treatment of its

equine stars has been in

highly-publicised illegal

activities by trainers,

Harness Racing New

on safeguarding the

The code, which has

attracted 40 submissions, comes

into force on July 1.

Designed to ensure industry

participants, from owners to

appropriately, the code covers

all interactions between individuals

and members of HRNZ,

the Racing Integrity Unit, the

Judicial Control Authority for

Racing and TAB employees.

HRNZ called for submissions

on May 4, about three weeks

after North Canterbury trainer

Mitchell Kerr was banned for

duping owners in New Zealand

and Australia.

that he has been subject

to adverse comments

from some sections of the

Canterbury harness racing

community, in a sense ostracising

him and blaming

him, he feels, for daring to

make his complaints (about

Kerr),” the judgement said.

The code insists participants

identify themselves

when using social media and not

use the identity of someone else,

including variations of a name.

Breaches of the code include

inappropriate, insulting, abusive,

defamatory or threatening communication

or behaviour, plus

discrimination or harassment

(sexual or otherwise) directed at,

or to, other participants.

These breaches could be made

in person or by phone, video,

text message, email, live or recorded

broadcast, social media,

in writing or via facsimile.

The code enables HRNZ

disciplinary action and also to

refer a breach to the RIU, which

can lay charges under the Rules

of Racing.

Back on track to self-sufficiency

Ken, a proud Scottish

daughter in Auckland and one

in Invercargill, he still makes

his way up and down the

country to say hello and do the

odd bit of gardening for them.

“I recently arrived back from

a road trip with my daughters.

We drove all over the North and

South Islands and caught the

ferry over to Stewart Island.”

Constantly keeping himself

busy, Ken doesn’t have any

interest in slowing down.

“My daughter was looking

for something to support my

joints. We came across the Koru

FX cream first. I’d been using

another, very popular gel on

my knee but the Koru Nutrition

cream was better.”

“When I saw Koru Nutrition

did capsules as well I

was interested. I’ve used

Glucosamine and Chondroitin

before but it didn’t do much for

me. Koru Joint however - that’s

made a massive difference.”

“I’m so glad I’ve been taking

this. I am moving like my

young self again. With it I had

the confidence to go on the

road trip, getting in and out

of the car and to walk around

of support. Koru Joint by Koru

Nutrition is different because

it focuses on three areas to

support soothing, nourishing

and lubrication of healthy

joints.

“I did a full day in the garden,

moved some wood around and

raked some leaves today - and I

feel good for it. I think I’m able

to do a lot more. My daughters

have to remind me to slow

down at times!”

“It’s not just me though. I

gave my neighbour a bottle of

Agreeing and

disagreeing with Minto

I agree with John Minto

(The Star, May 20), that this

Government was indeed wrong

to not release this report.

Minto claims that “Maori take

less from our health system than

pakeha simply because Maori die

younger.’’

Has he taken into account

that Maori are 15 per cent of

the population and therefore

naturally use less health dollars

than non-Maori? Why are they

dying younger?

Minto fought against the

apartheid in South Africa but

now is for separate systems

for Maori. Whether you call it

a ‘partnership’ or not, having

separate systems for different

people in the same land is

the definition of apartheid

(apartness).

What of the many other

ethnic and religious groups

that will then want their own

systems in place? How many

systems will we need? What

will bind us together as a

country?

If changes of governance/laws

are to be made, the discussion

should include all New

Zealanders so we can go forward

as one people, not two separate

societies. – D Downward

This latest view by John Minto,

who is renowned for being a

more than a separatists form of

government.

We are meant to be one

people with the right to

elect whoever we believe

will be able to deliver the best

outcome for New Zealanders as

a whole.

If we are to allocate 50 per

cent of government seats to

one particular group of

people.

Then what about all the other

ethnic groups in New Zealand.

Like all of us Maori came from

elsewhere.

Being first up doesn’t make

you best dressed in a democracy.

– Terrence Mundy

John Minto has a very odd

view of what democracy is.

Co-governance is not actually

democratic, in reality it dilutes

democracy.

You can’t give 15 per cent of

a population the same decision

making power as an elected

government. – J Stone

Aotearoa

I take issue with Bronwen

Summers (The Star, May 20 ) and

her version of when the name

Aotearoa was first used in New

Zealand.

Aotearoa does not appear

in the Treaty and the word

all understood that.

Aotearoa was unknown at that

time.

It appears that in the 1890s a

couple of European writers used

it as a fanciful name for New

Zealand.

Professor Sir Keith Sinclair

thought it was a name suggested

for only the North Island.

I cannot understand this

current campaign to change the

name of our country.

I have great pride to call myself

a New Zealander.

Incidentally, the suggestion

of Otautahi as the Maori name

for Christchurch could also be

incorrect.

It was thought that it referred

to a small area of Christchurch

Our car was broken into at the

another car was broken into with

significant damage that I saw at

I am also aware of thefts and

The police of course do not

in the regional council’s more than

30-year history.

A year ago this Saturday,

at 11.49am, Environment

Canterbury became New Zealand’s

first council to proclaim such an

emergency, formally dedicating

itself to consideration of climate

change at the heart of all it does.

The declaration highlighted

that all the work Environment

Canterbury does – from

freshwater management to

biodiversity and biosecurity,

transport and urban development

to air quality, and also regional

leadership – has a climate change

focus. NOW!

Currently, under the Resource

Management Act, regional

councils are required only to adapt

to climate change, not mitigate

it – that responsibility is the

Government’s, but could change.

Even in ‘adapt mode’ many

of Environment Canterbury’s

existing policies and plans already

contribute to reduced emissions.

In declaring the climate

emergency, the Council noted it

would continue to show leadership

on climate-change and do so

without adding new programmes

at ratepayers’ expense. It also gave

Yet the resurgent Halswell

Hornets were again ruing one

to protect a lead against a title

favourite during their club day

last weekend.

The Hornets had to settle for

a 16-all draw with the five-time

defending champion Linwood

Keas when they conceded a

last-minute try in round six after

leading 10-0 at half-time.

And a week later Halswell led

Hornby 18-4 at the break before

the Panthers staged a second half

revival to salvage a 24-all draw

on Saturday through braces to

winger Davy Watts and prop

Keletisua Tongotongo.

“We just didn’t manage to

carry on, we lost a bit of composure

but we’re a young side, we’re

still learning,” said Halswell head

coach Walter Wilson, who was

proud of his side’s reaction leading

into Saturday’s clash with

Papanui.

There were two huddles at the

end of the game. One was very

grateful they got a draw, we were

filthy.”

Wilson was still rapt the side

“We’d like the boys to be patted

on the back for a win, instead of a

draw but we’re starting to become

more consistent,” he said.

Halswell vice president Jeff

Whittaker was also impressed

after witnessing several lean

seasons recently where the team

languished in or around the bottom

half.

“To draw with (unbeaten)

Hornby … Linwood have won

the last five grand finals. It’ll

come. We’ve had four or five

18 year-olds step up to premier

grade already. They’re competing

and doing a good job.”

The Eastern Eagles again

distanced themselves from the

bottom of the eight-team ladder

with a 22-20 win over Riccarton

Refresh for major ute market challenger

A WORK colleague recently

bought a pre-owned car for her

son – it is a Honda Accord.

There is nothing unusual

about that, but what is unusual

is it has manual transmission.

Most buyers in the New Zealand

car market today are looking to

purchase vehicles with automatic

transmission, that’s fine, it’s what

the market demands, so I found

it refreshing to be part of the purchasing

process, getting behind

the wheel and using those three

pedals, albeit for a very short

drive.

The latest evaluation vehicle

to come my way with manual

transmission wasn’t actually a car

but a ute, Isuzu’s new D-Max to

be exact.

Isuzu has just launched a major

upgrade to its popular model,

given that it’s been several years

since its last refresh.

The new D-Max has had a fairly

substantial design makeover,

there’s a new double wishbone

suspension up front, the rear

suspension and differential

have had design upgrades, the

engine’s turbocharger system has

been re-engineered, there’s a lot

more kit in the car, especially

for safety where it earns a

five-star Australasian New Car

Assessment Program rating, and

with a bolder exterior the D-Max

is there to tempt the discerning

buyer who wants just something

a little bit out of the mainstream.

Bear in mind, though, that the

D-Max gets all of the engineering

experience of the wider General

Motors group, and it is a ute

that will stand the test of time.

There are also all of the cabin

configurations that you would

expect in an entire range of utes

– cab-chassis, wellside, space and

double cab options. There are 15

variants in total, some just rearwheel-drive,

others four-wheeldrive

and, of course, automatic

gearbox variants are scattered

throughout the line-up.

The evaluation car was an LS

specification double-cab wellside,

it lists at $61,990 ($65,990 auto),

$9500 from the range-topping

X-Terrain model. Incidentally, the

range starts at $49,990.

All variants are fitted with

a 3-litre turbocharged diesel

engine. Isuzu rates it at 140kW

and 450Nm. Power is up 10kW

and 20Nm over the previous

engine and it shows, the torque

flow is increased markedly in

terms of how it is structured

through the mid-range. Boost

from 1600rpm to 2600rpm is

substantial, especially in manual

gearbox form where power is

ushered in decisively as gears are

moved upwards.

Special mention must be made

here of the clutch and six-speed

shift sequence, the two combine

to give smooth changes and little

OPTIONS: The Isuzu D-Max is available with either a

manual and automatic gearbox.

likelihood off a stall at stakeoff.

Clutch action is light and

progressive, easily hiding the

rugged mechanicals which lie

beneath. Incidentally, the fourwheel-drive

and low ratio system

is initiated by console-mounted

electronic switches.

Although I had the D-Max

during a time of extensive

renovation at the Kiddiehousehold,

I didn’t use the deck

area for anything other than a

few light tasks. The deck area was

naked paint without a liner, so for

fear of scratching it unnecessarily

I was very circumspect.

On the subject of load, the

D-Max wellside is a genuine

one-tonner, capable of a

1.3-tonne payload depending

on the deck, that along with a

3500kg tow rating has it sitting

commandingly with the market

front-runners.

Not only is the D-Max manual

an easy car to drive smoothly, it

feels good to be in as a driver, it is

civilised and sits comfortably on

the road. The test car was fitted

with 18in Maxxis tyres, they were

deeply-treaded and I thought

they would make their presence

known on the road, however, I

was pleasantly surprised, there is

a little drone on perfectly smooth

surfaces but it wasn’t annoying

• Price – Isuzu D-Max LS

double cab, $61,990

• Dimensions – Length,

5265mm; width, 1870mm;

height, 1790mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2999cc, 140kW, 450Nm,

six-speed manual

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

10sec

• Fuel usage – 7.7l/100km

and on coarse chip seal there was

sound intrusion.

Isuzu should be well pleased

with the work it did on the

suspension, the ride is as good

as any in this part of the market,

in-cabin comfort is high both in

front and rear, and other than a

little jiggle over bumps and ruts

the load bearing design doesn’t

overly compromise comfort

levels.

Being a working ute, the

elements which make it

possible to traverse difficult

terrain are engineered into the

vehicle, the low ratio/manual

gearbox mix means an absolute

crawl mode is possible in first and

second gear.

Prior to picking the ute up it

was used for dealer evaluation

purposes and it had collected

a lot of soil underneath; that

being the case, I pointed the ute

at fairly steep clay bank on the

Port Hills, it easily conquered

the terrain, and with 240mm of

ground clearance there was little

possibility of getting caught going

over the top.

On descent, such is the engine

and transmission braking a feetoff-the-pedals

approach is to be

encouraged.

Column space doesn’t allow

comprehensive detailing of the

D-Max but to say it is a worthy

consideration in a busy market,

a market that is dominated by

Thailand-built wellsides. It’s

fair to say the D-Max is a

serious competitor, and with

its enhancements it’s going to

stay that way for many years to

come.

With its long-time running

mate the Holden Colorado

having disappeared, now is a

good time for the D-Max to

re-establish itself. After a break

in supply while the newcomer

came on stream, shipments

are plentiful and options are

considerable.

Add in the experience of the

local dealership, and Isuzu will

continue to have a good presence

in Canterbury.

All Welcome

Here are our top four tasks for home

buyers.

1. Research the property

The real estate agent selling the

property acts on behalf of the seller,

however they are also required to

tell you everything they know about

the property. They must respond

professionally to all your enquiries and

not withhold any details. Remember

that you still need to do your own

due diligence. That means getting a

title search so you can find out all the

facts about the property’s ownership,

boundary and access, as held by Land

Information New Zealand (LINZ). It’s

a good idea to get a Land Information

Memorandum (LIM), which shows

information held by the local council

about the property and land. For

valuable feedback on the property’s

condition, get a report done by

an inspector who has professional

indemnity insurance and carries out

their work in accordance with the New

Zealand Property Inspection Standard.

Although this all costs money, it will

save you more in the long term. Sellers

may occasionally provide some of this

information for you. If this happens,

check that it is up-to-date.

2. Get legal advice

Buying property is expensive, and it

can cost even more if something goes

wrong. That’s why it’s important to get

legal advice before you sign anything.

Home & Property appears every Thursday, delivered FREE

throughout Christchurch

Four things you MUST

do before buying a home

Buying a home is a big deal. It’s likely to be the most expensive thing you buy,

and it can be a complicated legal process. It might be tempting to take a few

shortcuts, but failing to do things properly could cause more problems later.

A lawyer will handle all the paperwork

involved in the process, including the

title search, and offer impartial advice.

If you don’t have a lawyer, the New

Zealand Law Society can help you find

one at propertylawyers.org.nz.

3. Understand the sale process

There are several methods of buying

and selling property, for example,

tender or auction. It’s important to

understand the process for the property

you are buying. Practices can vary

between agencies so make sure you

confirm details with them. The Home

Buyer’s Guide at buyingahome.reaa.

govt.nz has more helpful advice.

4. Read the sale and purchase

agreement and understand what it

means

The sale and purchase agreement

is your contract with the seller. It is

crucial to read it very carefully and get

legal advice before you sign. You can

negotiate the terms and conditions of

an agreement, but once you sign it,

there’s no going back.
