A TRAM RIDE through the city

for her son Simon’s 50th birthday

turned into an unsavoury

experience for Kay Rainey – the

canapes left her cold and the

beverages were lukewarm.

Rainey was so unhappy with

the catering provided during the

hour-long function on December

27 she sought a refund through

the Disputes Tribunal.

She was awarded $333 after

seeking $750, half the cost of the

function.

Rainey said tram operator

Christchurch Attractions had

offered $400 before the hearing,

though for her the outcome was

priceless.

“It’s not all about the money, I

wanted to have that judgement,”

she said.

Rainey’s complaint centred

on the two types of canapes

ordered: the rare beef with

homestead Yorkshire pudding

and horseradish cream; and the

smoked chicken, avocado, heirloom

basil tart.

Asked to describe the canapes,

Rainey replied: “One word –

inedible.”

“My two grandsons said:

‘What’s this nanny?’ I couldn’t

identify it from the taste.”

Function-goers, who were allocated

two canapes each, agreed

when supporting Rainey’s bid for

compensation.

They variously labelled the

canapes as “stale, cardboard-like,

bland and unacceptable.”

Rainey, who sampled the

caterer’s canapes selection in the

days leading up to the function,

also claimed only the first six

beers were chilled sufficiently.

In correspondence to Rainey,

Tramway Restaurant’s marketing

manager Emma Thomson said

her concerns were passed on to

the caterers.

The canapes were made by

their head chef and had been

tested for quality, and there were

no issues that arose,” Thomson

Tramway fare

wrote on January 15.

“As there were no quality issues

identified by the caterers we

are unable to offer a refund for

the event.”

Thomson added the caterers

would ensure they brought additional

chilling facilities in the

future as “all beverages should be

served cold.”

The tribunal found on

the balance of probabilities,

the canapes were not of an

acceptable quality so Rainey was

entitled to $333, the estimated

cost of the food.

Rainey received the refund last

week, plus two complimentary

tram tickets, which she was “not

inclined to use.”

In spite of the food leaving a

bad taste, Rainey praised the

tram and office staff.

The staff on the tram was

exceptionally nice, the girl

who took the booking was

exceptionally nice,” she said.

Shallow quake

rattles city

A shallow earthquake left

thousands of Christchurch

residents feeling rattled

yesterday. Geonet reports

the magnitude 3.9 quake hit

just before 1.50pm. It was

seven kilometres deep and

five kilometres south-west of

the city. More than 10,000

people reported feeling the

quake. Most thought the jolt

was moderate in strength, but

a few reported more intense

shaking. It was felt as far away

as Auckland, according to

GeoNet.

On May 13 an article in The

Star stated Paul Mora from

Christchurch was a “fraudster”

and that he was “in hiding.”

However, Mora has not been

convicted of fraud, and The

Incredible survival story: Driver

• By Susan Sandys

JOHNNY MILLER was stuck

up a tree with raging floodwaters

beneath him.

The 54-year-old plasterer

had phoned his friend after

abandoning his vehicle. In the

pitch-black darkness, heavy rain

soaked through his jacket and

he started to feel cold. His phone

was about to go dead, but before

it did, he got the text he was

hoping for - help was on its way.

It was the start of a fourhour

battle for survival, which

ended with Miller being swept

downstream and clinging to a

branch before being winched to

safety.

The interior plasterer and

racehorse trainer was among

those saved in several dramatic

air rescues in the Canterbury

floods at the weekend.

He had been driving to

Darfield from his home in

Hororata on Sunday and had

almost reached the town when

his car suddenly hit raging

waters about 7pm.

Miller said he had not

expected the Hawkins River on

Greendale Rd to have risen like

it did. The river is usually dry,

but runs across the road when

it is flowing. Miller said he had

driven across it just a couple of

hours earlier, when the river

was just a “trickle” and the road

had been “as good as gold.”

“I went out in the dark, it was

my fault, the road wasn’t closed,

before I knew it, I hit it,” he said.

His Ford Ranger floated

downstream. He undid his

seat-belt and picked up his

cellphone. He pressed the

number at the top of the

recently-phoned list on the

screen, which was for his friend

Ricky Chapman.

“I said ‘S**t mate, I think I’m

in a bit of trouble’.”

He decided to climb out the

driver-side window, and zipped

his cellphone into his jacket

pocket. On the first couple of

tries the automatic button to

wind the window down didn’t

work.

“And then it went,” he said.

Remaining calm, he climbed

onto the roof and was there for

a couple of minutes as the Ranger

was swept downstream about

50m, where Miller grabbed onto

a tree. He was surrounded by

pitch blackness as he stood on a

large branch of the tree, above

the raging waters below. He

phoned Chapman again.

“I said ‘I don’t think they will

get me out of here’.”

He did not want to cause a

fuss by phoning emergency services,

and thought he would

probably be alright up the

tree for the night. Chapman

disagreed and said he would

phone 111.

“I said ‘alright’.”

Chapman soon texted him

back to say he had called 111.

After that Miller’s phone

stopped working.

While he had been reasonably

dry when he got to the tree,

Miller soon became cold and

wet from the heavy rain.

plucked from raging river

After he had been there about

45 minutes, Darfield fire crews

arrived, found where he was by

calling out and shone torches in

the area.

Later a farmer, Rod May from

Darfield, shone lights from his

tractor onto the tree, while a swift

water rescue crew unsuccessfully

tried to reach Miller with boats.

An air force helicopter was next

on the scene. The helicopter

winchman was lowered down.

However, Miller was in an awkward

position in the tree and the

winchman could not reach him.

The helicopter flew away.

By this time Miller had had to

climb higher up the tree as the

water had risen. The ordeal was

now stretching into hours. It was

nearing 11pm and he was getting

“bloody cold.” However, he

said he had never felt desperate

or thought he was not going to

make it out.

“I was calm, but I was cold.

To be fair, I wasn’t worried. The

whole time I was out there I felt

calm,” Miller said.

He started to think that maybe

he could get to the bank of the

river, near where the emergency

services were, about 40m away.

He believed either the rescuers

would throw him a rope, or he

would be able to grab onto another

tree.

“I thought - I will go like hell,

and I will get out on the right side

where those torches are,” Miller

said.

“I felt I had got myself in that

position, I felt I had to try and get

myself out of it.”

He took off his jacket, keeping

on his T-shirt, shorts and work

boots, and dived into the river.

“I felt warmer in the water than

in the tree.”

The river sucked him down

under branches at one point, but

the force of the river pushed him

through the debris. He tried to

grab at trees along the way, and

after being swept about 300m

managed to hold onto the branch

of a tree.

“I had a rest on the branch, I

had a wee breather for about a

couple of minutes, and I briefly

got up the branch, and I saw the

helicopter. They must have called

the helicopter back. I got further

out on the branch and waved,

and they spotted me.”

Rod May

He had been in the water about

15 minutes when the winchman

was this time able to reach him

and lift him from the water.

He had a “windy” ride at the

end of the rope dangling under

the helicopter, as it moved to a

nearby paddock and hovered

over it for some time to get in the

right position to lower him down.

However, at that time he wasn’t

feeling the cold.

“What happens is your adrenalin

kicks in, that’s why, but then

when I got to the ground, then I

was cold, and they put me in the

stretcher,” Miller said.

In the ambulance, paramedics

told him his body temperature

was low. He was taken to

Christchurch Hospital, where he

stayed the night and was treated

for hypothermia.

Miller said he had learned a

lesson from the ordeal, about

just how quickly floodwaters

can rise and to never know what

is around the corner in such

conditions.

“Don’t expect every road that’s

not got a sign up to be foolproof,”

he said.

Miller said he had great respect

for his rescuers, who were

“gutsy.”

“You don’t want them putting

their lives out there, you know,

but they do.”

His rescuers told The Star how

they were stunned at Miller’s

survival.

Rod May, who had earlier

brought the tractor to the scene,

and his family watched as Miller

dived into the river.

“We were horrified, we thought

that’s it, he’s gone,” May said.

Darfield Volunteer Fire Brigade

chief John Chambers echoed this

fear.

“When he went into the river,

we really thought that possibly it

was the end for the poor bugger,”

Chambers said.

Miller bought a new cellphone

on Tuesday, but planned to

retrieve his jacket and the phone

that saved his life from the tree

once floodwaters subsided. He

also planned to retrieve his

car, which he had since spotted

downstream on its side.

PRECARIOUS: Lee Jewel at the intersection of Cranford and Westminster

Sts keeps a keen eye out for cars.

Call to curb red light

LEE JEWEL runs the

gauntlet without hesitation,

even if it means motorists

clip the warning sign she

holds to help St Albans

School children get to class

safely.

Jewel patrols

the intersection of

Westminster and Cranford

St daily, a precarious

position during morning

rush hour on one of the

city’s busiest roads.

They’ve knocked my

sign, that’s happened quite

a few times. Drove into

it . . . children are crossing

and I scream: ‘Stop’. It

keeps you on your toes,”

she said.

“Everybody’s in a hurry

to get to work. They cut

around (from Westminster

to Cranford) when there’s

kids walking across.”

She said one boy on

a scooter was struck

recently while crossing the

intersection, the driver did

not stop but was traced by

police.

While content police

blitz the area from time to

time Jewel, who has served

as a school patroller for

12 years, urged the city

council to put up a sign

warning children

are crossing, even though

the junction has traffic

lights.

“We’ve asked for it, but

they won’t give it to us,”

she said.

Rugby, the Soviets, space travel,

organised crime . . . and murder

From Russia with

a paratrooper, a

ballet dancer and an

underworld player.

Thirty years ago this

week, Canterbury

played the former

USSR at Lancaster

Park. Chris Barclay

revisits the game with

Wiremu Maunsell, who

was offered a place

on the Soviet space

programme after the

tour

RAUV MALIKOV, the

chrome-domed hooker, was

a paratrooper who landed in

Afghanistan when the Soviets

invaded in 1979.

The first five-eighth, Sergei

Boldakov, was an accomplished

ballet dancer, explaining his

twinkle-toes.

And the first choice centre,

Igor Kuperman, followed a

deeply flawed game plan when

he turned to a short-lived life of

organised crime after the USSR’s

curious ground-breaking rugby

visit to New Zealand.

Although the All Blacks’ failed

World Cup defence was the lead

rugby story of 1991 here, the Soviets

eight-match tour provided

some odd talking points before

they departed with a four-win

four-loss record.

They played Canterbury at

Lancaster Park 30 years ago on

Tuesday, where they suffered the

first, and heaviest, loss on their

schedule, a 73-15 hammering

that sunny afternoon.

Wiremu Maunsell played

centre outside captain Andrew

McCormick and has clear recollections

of the opposition, and

his marker.

Now 54-years-old and working

as a pool safety inspector in

Brisbane, Maunsell also lined

up against Kuperman for a New

Zealand XV in the penultimate

game of the tour in Hamilton.

“He was a nice guy, a small

guy but hard,” Maunsell told The

Star.

“After the last game I gave him

my New Zealand XV jacket. I

knew I’d never wear it again.

You’d never go around town

wearing a New Zealand XV

jacket, you’d get something

thrown at you.

“I said, ‘You have this’ and he

was rapt. I never heard from him

afterwards,” he said.

“In those days you had to

write, you didn’t have text

messages, mobile phones, or

Facebook.”

Kuperman, one of few members

of the tour party to utter or

understand rudimentary English,

was actually murdered in

Siberia a decade before Facebook

launched in 2004.

According to a three-line

report in The Moscow Times,

dated November 11, 1994,

Kuperman, the captain of

Russia’s international rugby

team, was found with a single

shot to the head in a pine

forest in his home town of

Krasnoyarsk.

Another report said Kuperman

was a member of a criminal

group in what was then regarded

as the underworld capital of

Siberia.

The choices you make …

it’s really sad to hear that about

him,” Maunsell said.

Although the Soviets were

soundly beaten, Maunsell gave

them credit.

They had some really big

forwards and really quick backs.

They were good guys, they just

didn’t have that background and

history with rugby, that’s all,” he

said.

They were athletes, they just

had to learn the art of the game

and if they’d picked that up more

they would have done a

lot better.”

Touch judge Terry Marshall

reckoned learning in a rugby

school of hard knocks wasn’t

exactly a priority; the tour

summary in the 1991 edition of

the New Zealand Rugby Almanac

drew the same conclusion.

Marshall ran the line at

Lancaster Park and seven days

‘After the last game I gave him my New Zealand XV jacket. I knew I’d never wear it again.

You’d never go around town wearing a New Zealand XV jacket, you’d get something

thrown at you.’

– Wiremu Maunsell

later he refereed the match

against Otago in Carisbrook.

“It’s a little bit from memory,

but I think the assistant coach

(New Zealander Duncan Dysart)

said he could only get them

together to practice once a week,”

he said.

They enjoyed themselves.

They weren’t out and about

ripping it up, they were just

enjoying being in New Zealand.

It was a great chance to get away

from restrictions.”

Some players headed to

Lyttelton once they realised it

was a port of call for compatriots

on fishing vessels.

‘Oh yeah, it’s Moon Man’ – Maunsell

• From page 9

“I think they were more into

sightseeing than playing,” said

Marshall, who is still spending

Saturday afternoons as an assistant

referee in Christchurch club

rugby. “They played alright for a

team like that.”

Author and journalist Joseph

Romanos felt the Soviets were not

as motivated as they might have

been.

The New Zealand union spent

a considerable amount of money

bringing the Russians on tour,

believing they were acting in

the best interests of rugby. They

probably were, but it is questionable

if the tourists made the best

use of the opportunities they

were given,” Romanos wrote in

the almanac.

Then All Blacks coach Alex

Wyllie took one training session

with the squad and was willing to

do more, but was not required.

Other than scoring a try off

a Greg Coffey bomb, Maunsell

also had vivid memories of the

after-match function, where the

visitors supplied the vodka.

“In the after-match they’d be

selling those (wooden) babushka

dolls. They were funding themselves

as they went, so good on

them.”

The Soviets also put the hard

sell on tour liaison officer Ivan

Vodanovich, the former All

Blacks coach, which led to a bizarre

storyline involving Maunsell

when the teams were

in Hamilton.

Yuli Andreichev, a

businessman and former

government minister who

partially sponsored the tour,

surprised Vodanovich by offering

a New Zealand player the

possibility to join the Soviet space

programme as a cosmonaut.

As Maunsell recalled: “The

morning of the game they called

me into a room and Ivan said,

‘This is what we’re going to

do. He (Yuli) is going to speak

Russian, he’s going to put the

offer out and we want you to

throw your hand up and say

‘Yeah, I’ll go’.”

Maunsell figured there were

three reasons he was selected. As

a Māori he was ideal to represent

New Zealand, he was in the army

so taking orders wasn’t an issue

and he was the right size.

“I was smaller, you can’t have

big guys in those little cockpit

things,” he said.

Ultimately the gimmick never

got off the ground because the

USSR dissolved on December 26,

1991.

But Maunsell, who played

tests for Hong Kong after his

Canterbury career ended in 1993,

is still reminded of his unlikely

chance to go into orbit.

The jokes lasted forever,”

he lamented.

“When the boys see me they go

‘Oh yeah it’s ‘Moon Man’.”

Maunsell is still involved with

rugby, he coaches an under-15

side in Brisbane, and although

he never kept in touch with

Kuperman, Canterbury did forge

links with the slain gangster’s

players’ club, Krasny Yar.

In 2010 the club sent a 38-man

squad and five coaches to attend

a three-week training camp with

the Canterbury Rugby Union’s

International High Performance

Unit where they had sessions

with the Crusaders coaching

staff.

Kuperman, meanwhile, is

remembered in the city where

he made his name as a rugby

player. A youth tournament in

his memory is held in August at

Krasny Yar Stadium.

Victoria Cross recipient’s earthquake

damaged family plot to be repaired

• By Chris Barclay

THE EARTHQUAKE-damaged

family plot of Sergeant Henry

Nicholas, Canterbury’s first

Victoria Cross recipient, will be

repaired after the New Zealand

Remembrance Army answered

the call of a distressed Korean

War veteran.

Ken Wright’s campaign

to reinstall and clean the

toppled headstone in Bromley

Cemetery will reach fruition

after the charity devoted to the

restoration of New Zealand war

graves learned of the plot’s state.

NZ Remembrance Army chief

executive Simon Strombom

said the city council would be

approached to organise the

necessary consents and ideally

the rejuvenated plot would be

unveiled in about two months.

“We’ll hopefully get a

ceremony organised because it

is a nationally significant grave,”

he said.

The headstone had to be lifted

and pinned, with Strombom

estimating the work would cost

$1500 to $2000.

“We’ll underwrite it and get it

done. This is what we’re here for,”

he said.

“This is a classic case, there’s

war graves all over New Zealand

and no one looks after them. We

just funded six (repairs) in Te

Awamutu.”

Strombom said the

Christchurch branch of

the Returned and Services’

Association would contribute to

the project.

The New Zealand Army and

Veterans Affairs’ New Zealand

had also pledged support.

Wright first noticed the family

plot 20 years ago when visiting

from Dunedin. He moved to

Christchurch last November and

was appalled the plot has not

been repaired since the

2011 earthquakes.

PROGRESS:

The family

plot of Victoria

Cross recipient

Sergeant Henry

Nicholas is set to

be repaired by

the New Zealand

Remembrance

Army.

He was rapt to hear the NZ

Remembrance Army had

mobilised.

“That’s brilliant, bloody great,”

Wright said.

Lincoln-born Nicholas was

awarded the VC for his heroic

exploits in December 1917 when

storming a German machine

gun nest in Belgium during

World War 1.

Nicholas was killed, aged 27,

in France on October, 29 1918,

shortly before the armistice.

Robyn Thew, a great-niece of

Nicholas, was delighted the plot

would be restored and noted

Henry’s brothers Frederick

Charles and Ernest, who also

served in World War 1, were also

buried there with their mother

Hannah.

The family lost quite a lot.

They lost one of their sons and

the other two came back pretty

shell-shocked. They never had

families,” she said.

Thew visited the plot several

years ago and felt guilty the plot

had lay so long in disrepair.

“My sister said to me: ‘I never

even thought about that grave.

When the earthquakes happened

the last thing you think of is

the gravestone of an old relative

don’t you’?

“I felt really sad that we hadn’t

thought about that.”

The NZ Remembrance Army,

formed on January 1, 2019,

relies on public donations

which can be made at https://

Jenny loves. When she found

a way to combine her creative

passions with her drive to give

back to the community she was

overjoyed.

The local township where

she lives opened a creative

space and through this she was

employed as a Maori Arts tutor

and followed that up by teaching

art as a mental health worker.

Being a teacher, standing up

“Every night, not only would

I struggle to get to sleep but

I would be waking at least a

legs. Trying to teach mental

health patients after a bad

night’s sleep, is not a good

mix. I started to become a bit

snappy.”

After a friend of hers, who

was using Koru FX on her back

it, she has not looked back.

Dog barking

program saves

council time

• By Devon Bolger

THE CITY council is spending

$40,000 to analyse dog barks.

In February, the council began

using a programme that can

analyse the audio taken from bark

recording devices to determine if

it is loud enough and long enough

to take action.

The devices have been used for

10 years, recording the extent of

the barking when a complaint has

been made.

In the past 12 months, the

council has received 2384

complaints about dogs barking.

An Official Information

Act request revealed $29,880

has been spent on the project

to automatically analyse the

recordings to date.

Another $5000 is expected to be

spent for it “to get to production”

and a web page will be set up,

bringing the total expected cost to

$40,000.

The costs includes staff salaries,

while the council says the non-staff

costs are very minor.

In its OIA response, the city

council says the project is expected

to save 240 hours a month of staff

physically listening to the audio

files.

Casino in spotlight over pokie

donations to community

• By Matt Slaughter

NOT ENOUGH of Christchurch

Casino’s profit is going to charity.

That is the view expressed in

the city council’s draft submission

to the Gambling Commission.

The commission is reviewing

the charitable trust licence

conditions of the country’s six

casinos - in Christchurch, Auckland,

Hamilton, Dunedin and

Queenstown.

But Christchurch Casino

chief executive Brett Anderson

said it exceeds its charity

donation requirements, while

still achieving its main goal of

running a business.

The city council submission

questions the amount of money

from each of Christchurch

Casino’s 454 machines, $390,000

in total, which went to the

community in 2020.

Last year $859 from each

machine was donated,

compared to $20,000 from each

Christchurch non-casino pokie

machine in the 2019-20 financial

year, $26.4 million in total.

Anderson said the most up-todate

figure of casino donations is

actually $407,000.

Christchurch Casino is

required to pay its charitable

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

trust at least 2.5 per cent of

its annual profit or $250,000,

whichever was greater. On top

of this, it pays an additional

minimum of $100,000 in

charitable payments at its own

discretion. Non-casino gaming

machine operators are required

to provide at least 40 per cent of

the profits as community grants.

Said the city council’s draft

submission: “The council believes

that neither the current

donations required, nor those

actually provided, provide

credible social license for CCL

(Christchurch Casino Ltd) to

operate in our city.

“Donations to the casino’s

charitable trust seem small,

especially when compared to the

requirements placed on other

forms of gambling.”

Anderson said it is unfair to

compare donation requirements

for the casino, which has many

purposes other than gambling,

to TABs, where the main purpose

is gambling.

“Casinos are a legitimate

business and they were not set

up to, I suppose, provide funds

to charities or to the community,

they were set up for the economy,

tourism, to create jobs, different

factors and be a thriving

business.

“We contribute a lot more than

what we’re, legally, under our

license conditions, committed to

contribute.

“We have a far-reaching

community reach. Yes, it’s not

as high as your pubs, clubs and

sports venues [and] not as high

as Lotto or anything else, but in

terms of our business, I think the

key word is that it is a business.”

The submission recommends

the amount of money won at New

Zealand casinos should be used

to determine the amount each

contributes to its charitable trust.

This would mean casinos

where wins happen more often

would give more to charity and

vice versa.

Anderson said Christchurch

Casino’s profits already have

an influence on how much it

donates to the community.

City councillors are set to

decide whether to approve the

draft submission at

today’s meeting.

Hi Christchurch,

From our AMI store on Chalmers Street,

our team have enjoyed being part of your

community, and this isn’t going to change.

You may have heard AMI has closed most

of our retail stores across the country,

including our Hornby store. But we’re not

going anywhere.

We believe it’s not the bricks and mortar

that make a relationship, but the people.

So, we intend for all our Hornby Personal

Insurance Consultants to continue working

for AMI, supporting our customers over the

phone and online. Just give us a call and

we’ll support you with all your insurance

needs, the same as we always have.

The reason for this change reflects the ways

many of our customers choose to interact

with us. During the past few years, we’ve

seen a decline in visits to our stores with

more of you engaging with us online or

over the phone. So, we also see this as an

opportunity to improve and develop new

online services – to be there for you when

you need us.

To support this transition, we’ve partnered

A retrospective look

at floods in Canty

Thursday June 3 2021 The Star

NEWS 17

After earthquakes, flooding happens to be New

Zealand’s second costliest natural hazard – and

the weekend’s deluge in Christchurch reflects

why. Science reporter Jamie Morton looks at

three questions surrounding the disaster

MANY AREAS in Canterbury

have been struck by major

floods during the past 150

years. In Christchurch,

floodwaters were sometimes

knee-deep in the central city in

the late 1800s and early 1900s.

During early European settlement,

regular river overflows

occurred over the flood plain

areas in and around Christchurch

and Kaiapoi.

Since the primary stopbank

was completed in the 1930s,

the Waimakariri River hasn’t

flooded through the city.

The most recent breakout,

which happened in December

1957, flooded parts of Coutts Island,

in Belfast, and Kainga and

was just under 4000 cumecs.

Being built on the flood plain

of the Waimakariri River,

Canterbury is no stranger to

heavy flooding no matter the

season. The first stopbanks were

built in the 1860s but floods still

regularly happened.

This week marks the anniversary

of several of these

events from the past. From 130

to five years ago, all have caused

damage, fear and anger, but

also given reason to help each

other out

On February 4, 1868, a severe

storm hit Canterbury causing

wide spread damage across the

region. The storm, which began

the day before, continued over

night, wrecking many ships at

anchor in Lyttelton.

The first alarm for Christchurch

was raised by a Fendall

Town (Fendalton) resident who

reported that the Waimakariri

River had flooded and broken

through its banks. This, in turn,

sent a surge of water towards

Christchurch via the Avon.

Just an hour later at 1pm,

the Avon had raised so much

that water had begun to trickle

across the Madras St bridge.

Those unfortunate enough

to live near the Avon and its

streams were now under water

– in some places four feet deep.

Tearing away at its own banks,

knocking down fences and

drowning hundreds of hoof

stock, quite a grand pile of

debris rolled into the city with

the torrent.

Police and workmen from the

city council were dispatched out

into the affected areas, helping

people to evacuate their homes

and to clear away any dangerous

debris from the waters.

Victoria St was even dug up

to form a stop bank in the hope

this would halt the flood – it

didn’t. By nightfall, Market

Place (Victoria Square) was

knee deep in water, wrecking

the businesses that called the

place home. One man had to

be rescued when he attempted

to make his way through the

flood. He fell into a hole that

had been dug away by the water

and almost drowned.

Throughout the night, cabbies

drove people back and forth in

their hansom cabs for six dimes

per head. For years, many

remembered the cab’s lanterns

flickering over the eerie black

waters.

Christchurch was not the

only town affected. Kaiapoi

was completely under water

and many bridges, roads and

railways, had been swept away

from the Waimakariri and

Selwyn Rivers. Communication

by telegraph had kept Canterbury

in touch with the rest of

the country but by the time the

floodwaters began to drop back,

only the line between Christchurch

and Lyttelton remained.

An engineer who predicted

that the Waimakariri would

flood eventually was William

Bray (his farm is now the

suburb of Avonhead). His

warnings were not taken

seriously though.

The following poem was

written by Crosbie Ward

of The Lyttelton Times:

At Avonhead lives Mr Bray,

Who every morning used

to say,

“I should not be much

surprised today

If Christchurch city were

swept away

By the rushing, crushing,

flushing, gushing

Waimakariri River”

He told his tale and he

showed his plan,

How the levels lay and the

river ran;

The neighbours thought

him a learned man,

But wished him further

Waimakariri River

Weekend storm a

significant event

WAS IT A one-in-100 year event?

There’s no question the weekend

storm was a significant one.

Places such as Akaroa, Methven

and Winchmore received around

twice their normal monthly rainfall

in fewer than three days.

At Lismore, near Ashburton,

238mm dropped

– that’s the same amount

that it had received in the

previous 187 days.

Such was the storm’s intensity

that some labelled

it a “once in a century”

downpour.

But it’s really not that

simple – and indeed such

a calculation could be impossible

to make.

Dr Rob Bell, a scientist specialising

in coastal hazards, said

categorising events in such a

way – as had become ingrained

because of past practice – was a

“problematic issue”.

“We now face the ongoing

influence of climate change on

weather-related events that no

longer fits with the assumption

of no underlying change in our

weather systems, climate or sea

level.”

The term has long been used as

a measure of the likely time frame,

on average, an event exceeds a

certain level – whether that be

a flood height, rainfall total, or

storm-tide sea level – based on a

Emily Lane

record of historic measurements.

That meant calculating a “onein-100-year”

event from 50 years

– or even 100 years of records –

came with obvious uncertainties.

Bell said a slightly better measure

was the “annual exceedance

probability”, or AEP.

By this, a “one-in-100-

year” event had a chance of

one per cent each year of

being reached or exceeded.

“So the clock doesn’t get

reset once such an event

occurs, such that it won’t

occur again for 100 years,”

he said.

“It’s like a computer

picking randomly from numbers

one to 100 and getting a one, then

five rounds later it could be a one

again.”

The usual way the AEP of a

flood is calculated was with river

gauges, which measure the height

of the water in a river at a given

time.

This was converted into a “flow”

– or how many cumecs, or cubic

metres of water, per second, were

flowing down the river using a

rating curve.

“So for rivers where we have

gauges, we have measurements

of the flow in that river over

time,” said Dr Emily Lane, a

hydrodynamics scientist at

NIWA.

• From page 17

“To calculate the AEP of a flood

in that river, we take the largest

flow in the river each year and we

look at the values we get for this

over many years.

“If we had hundreds of years of

data this would be easy and the

one in 100 year event would be

the one that happened on average

once in 100 years.

“It is a bit trickier though,

because we don’t have that length

of data, so we have to use mathematical

techniques to work out

what these would be if we have

shorter records.”

That meant that, the shorter the

record was, the more uncertainty

there wouldd be with the result.

“If there happens to have been

a big flood in that time, it might

overestimate – or if there haven’t

been any floods, it might underestimate.”

She also pointed out that floods

didn’t happen regularly.

“Just because there is a big flood

now it doesn’t mean there won’t

be another one in the near future.

They still might on average only

happen once in a 100 years.”

And the other obvious problem:

the planet was warming and

changing our weather.

“One of the big assumptions

in this method is that the climate

is not changing – of course we

know that this is not the case at

the moment,” Lane said.

“So we are using the past record

to calculate the probability of a

flood occurring but because of

climate change the probability

of that flood occurring might be

increasing.”

Especially because of climate

change, Bell said using the AEP

measure was causing confusion.

The past measurements are no

longer a reliable guide to future

events – both the size and how

often they will occur,” he said.

“An event that in the past might

have occurred, on average, once

in 100 years is likely to occur, on

average, once every 50 or 80 years

or so over the next few decades.”

So how should these big events be

categorised?

“That is a tricky one,” Lane said.

“People always ask what the

probability of a flood is and a lot

of our planning and design and

hazard management are based on

probability of events happening.

“I think we need to ensure that

whenever we talk about the probability

of flooding we acknowledge

that we are in a changing

climate and that probability of

flooding might increase.

“We are also working hard to

understand how climate change

might affect these probabilities

but there is a lot of uncertainty in

that – not least what we as the human

race are doing to reduce our

carbon emissions.”

Did climate change play a part?

Such was the complex nature

of the atmospheric and ocean

processes driving the storm, that

it remained difficult to ascribe

this or any other weather event to

climate change.

The deluge came as a result of a

deep and slow-moving low-pressure

system that helped siphon

moisture through an “atmospheric

river” stretching thousands of

kilometres back to the subtropics.

The way that moisture was

slung around the low and on to

the eastern South Island – where

moisture-packed air masses

dropped their loads before

climbing the Southern Alps –

was something seen more

commonly with big West Coast

rain events.

Further in the background,

the moisture coming from the

tropics had been charged by the

presence of a pulse of rain and

thunderstorms that circulates the

‘Rains are getting heavier, so records will be broken’

than three days.

planet every 30 to 40 days called

the Madden-Julian Oscillation, or

MJO.

But that wasn’t to say a warming

climate wasn’t a factor.

“As the climate warms, there

is more moisture in the air on

average, so when it rains it is

likely to rain harder than it used

to,” Victoria University climate

scientist Professor James Renwick

explained.

“That’s why we expect the occurrence

of heavy rainfalls and

floods to increase over time as it

continues to warm up.

“At the same time, the very

heaviest rains are getting

heavier, so records will be

broken and the once-rare

events will become more

commonplace.

“Unfortunately, the terrible

damage we’ve seen

done in Canterbury over

the past couple of days is

something we are likely to

see more often in future.”

Lane said the sheer

amount of water that fell was

the main factor in Canterbury’s

storm, but there were also other

exacerbating factors.

Renwick added that rivers actually

flooded naturally, and could

change course unpredictably over

their floodplains.

“For instance, the Waimakariri

River has in the past flowed

through the area where Christchurch

now is,” he said.

“Building stopbanks reduces

the chances of such events and are

a good protection against most

floods.”

The downside, he said, was

what was called “maladaptation”

– or where communities

developed a false sense of security

through the presence of the stop

banks.

“That can lead to increased

urban development close to the

river, and even greater damage

and misery when the really big

flood comes.”

As for climate change, Lane

said the deluge highlighted an

important point.

“Canterbury was in

the grips of a drought

recently and lack of water

was a far bigger problem,”

she said.

Then suddenly when

the water came, it came

all at once. These sorts

of extremes are expected

to occur more frequently

under climate change.

The expected increase

in these types of drought-flood

cycles needs to be incorporated

into future planning.”

Are “atmospheric rivers” new

features?

Atmospheric rivers aren’t

anything new – but scientists are

learning more about them all the

time.

Otago University senior lecturer

Dr Daniel Kingston described

them as “long, thin filaments” of

atmospheric moisture transport

Daniel

Kingston

that could carry more water than

the Amazon River.

“Atmospheric rivers more commonly

occur on the West Coast

of the South Island, but this one

made landfall on the east coast

instead.”

Associate Professor Asaad

Shamseldin, of Auckland

University’s Faculty of

Engineering, said these

rivers were known to a major

contributor to the water cycle,

severe floods, droughts breaking,

and strong winds worldwide.

On average there are only three

to five atmospheric rivers present

in each hemisphere, covering

just 10 per cent of the globe’s

mid-latitude circumference but

accounting for 90 per cent of

moisture transport in the same

region.

But so far, there was a very

limited understanding about

the impacts they’d had in New

Zealand specifically.

Atmospheric rivers had the

greatest impact on the West Coast

of the South Island, accounting

for much of the heavy rain commonly

seen there.

One dramatic example was the

March 25, 2019, storm which

washed away the Waiho Bridge

near Franz Josef on the West

Coast.

That event packed the highest

ever total of rainfall over a

48-hour period in New Zealand

recorded history – reaching

1086mm.

While the most severe happened

around once every five

years, evidence suggested that

these bigger events may become

more frequent and more intense

in a warming climate.

Earlier this year, an Otago

University study provided the first

detailed analysis of their effects

on local weather events.

“In very basic terms, one of

the results of a warmer climate

is a wetter atmosphere,” said

the study’s lead author, Hamish

Prince.

“With more moisture in

the atmosphere the frequency

and magnitude of atmospheric

rivers making landfall in New

Zealand is expected to increase,’’

he said.

October opening likely for Te Pae

TE PAE Christchurch

Convention Centre will open

for business in late October

with a roster of domestic and

Australasian events planned for

its opening months.

General manager Ross Steele

said confirmation of the opening

after delays because of the Covid

lockdown meant clients would

now have certainty in terms of

planning events.

“As the first of New Zealand’s

new generation of convention

centres to open we have a unique

opportunity to put New Zealand

business events back on the

world stage, while at the same

time showcasing the very best

transtasman bubble provided

an initial confidence boost to

event organisers. We hope the

confirmation of our opening will

provide further assurances that

Ōtautahi Christchurch, and in

particular Te Pae Christchurch,

is the ideal location for their

events.”

There are about 70 events on

its books, including the New

Zealand College of Midwives

conference and the Australasian

Coasts and Ports convention.

Combined, the events will

see more than 129,000 people

through the venue, including

Drop-in pitch well and truly stumped

• By Chris Barclay

THE MANGLED steel frame,

chopped in two by excavating

equipment, looks nondescript

as it languishes on the old south

ground at Lancaster Park.

Yet during the summer of

2000-2001, the ground-breaking

wicket tray encased 22 yards of

New Zealand-made test cricket

history.

As the demolition and regeneration

of Christchurch’s hallowed

sporting turf continues,

a fortnight ago workers had no

idea what they had unearthed

when digging out the back of the

earthquake-ravaged stadium.

“It was buried, tucked in

right on the south boundary

on Lismore St,” said Taggart

Earthmoving Ltd’s demolitions

manager Mike Smart.

The relevance of the framing

was only apparent when cricket

buff Richard Gibbs, the city

council’s project manager for

Lancaster Park made a site visit.

Although it is historic in spite

of being only two decades old, a

portion of the wicket tray is not

destined for the New Zealand

Cricket Museum at Wellington’s

Basin Reserve.

“It will get cut up with our

steel shear and it’ll be recycled.

From there it’ll be processed and

shipped overseas to be smelted

down,” Smart said.

The drop-in pitch debuted

in the second test of the series

with Pakistan from March 15,

2001, a dreary draw memorable

for double tons to player of the

match Mathew Sinclair (204*)

and Mohammad Yousuf (203).

Criticised for favouring strokemakers

throughout, only 19

wickets fell in five days.

Opener Mark Richardson created

an unwanted footnote when

he was the first victim when

bowled by Saqlain Mushtaq for

46.

“It got a bit of a bad rap because

there was nothing in it, it

was too flat,” remembered then

groundsman Chris Lewis.

However, 12 months later

the pitch played its part in an

enthralling test with England,

as Nathan Astle slammed the

fastest-ever test double ton from

153 balls.

Ultimately the Cantabrian’s

rollicking 222 (168 balls) was in

vain New Zealand were 98 runs

short of their victory target.

Lewis has fonder memories of

that encounter after producing

a green top for Chris Cairns,

Ian Butler and debutant Chris

Drum.

There was lots of grass, lots

of movement and carry. It had

all the excitement and drama .

. . it was an all-round great test

match,” Lewis said.

New Zealand also lost to Australia

by nine wickets in 2005

and the following summer the

last test was staged at the ground,

a five-wicket win over Sri Lanka.

Lewis was proud the drop-in

pitch was produced locally, a

portable wicket used in the

series opener at Eden Park was

imported from Australia.

Even so, Lewis doubts whether

a length of the wicket tray frame

should be preserved at the national

cricket museum.

PITCH IMPERFECT:

The first New

Zealand-made

drop-in test wicket

now gives no

Canterbury was one of the most

serious, and colourful, moments

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 NOW! – has a climate change

focus.

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

FIRST-TIME garlic grower?

Don’t fret growing garlic is

pretty easy, all you need is good

seedlings and great soil and you’re

away.

Garlic season is from April

to July, but the traditional day

to plant garlic is on June 21, the

shortest day of the year and ready

to be harvested on the longest day

of the year, December 21.

Garlic grows best in friable soil.

Friable soil is soil that is “crumbly”

in texture and is somewhere

between clay and sand, when

your press the soil it should make

a lump but it’s easy to break

down.

This type of soil is important

for garlic since it holds up to 15

times its water and prevents soil

erosion.

Tips to get planting

1 Pick a spot in your garden

that receives full sun but also part

shade and make sure where you’re

planting has good air circulation

2 Plant in well-drained, fertilised

bed

3 Position bulb 2cm below the

soil surface

4 Plant 15cm apart

5 Keep well weeded

6 Harvest usually in late

December or early Jan when the

leaves die away

7 Store in an airy dry place out

of the sun and rain

Once you’ve planted your garlic,

keep an eye out for rust.

Rust is a fungal disease that

won’t cause much damage to established

bulbs but unfortunately,

won’t be ideal for your seedlings.

So, to avoid that happening we

recommend getting your garlic

plants in as early as possible. and

if you had rust in the last two

to three years on your garlic or

onions, make sure you plant them

in a different spot this year.

Be sure to keep feeding your

garlic, we recommend organic

seaweed as it encourages larger

bulbs and protects the roots of

your plant from temperature fluctuations

as well as strengthens the

HEALTHY: Plant garlic bulbs 15cm apart in

well-drained, fertilised beds.

plant against pests and diseases.

If you find your garlic has rust,

chop off the infected leaves as

soon as you spot rust and discard

them in the rubbish – not your

compost bin as this will spread

the infection.

Also, give your hands, clothes

and gardening tools that might

have come into contact with the

fungus a good wash.

Companion planting can also

help prevent diseases. Plant your

garlic with carrots, beets, kale,

kohlrabi, roses, marigolds and

geraniums.

Avoid planting asparagus,

beans, sage and peas with your

garlic seedlings as this could stunt

their growth.

Are you ready to grow?

For real kiwi gardeners who like

to get their hands dirty.

Science for all ages on show in Dunedin

THE NEW Zealand International

Science Festival returns to

Dunedin for 2021 with a

programme jam-packed with

over 100 events, and 250 sessions

over the 10-day event.

The festival, which takes place

during the July school holidays

(July 8 to 18) offers something

for every age group, from the

very young to the more mature

audience.

Big Science Show with Amadeo

returns for the first weekend

of the festival. Expect the usual

bangs, pops, thrills and spills

which are a traditional part of the

always popular festival event. This

year, the festival has engaged local

comedian and playwright Abby

Howells to write the show, and

Alex Wilson to direct.

The festival is excited to present

Our Moon: Then Now and

Beyond, an installation artwork

by British artist Luke Jarrem. The

work, a 4m diameter inflatable

sphere with a hi-resolution NASA

photograph of our moon will be

suspended inside Hanover Hall

for the second half of the festival.

The moon will play host to a

number of other events, such as

yoga, the Space Frontiers exhibition,

story time for children, and

much more.

The festival is very excited to

announce that Tiny Ruins’ Hollie

Fullbrook will perform a very

special solo show underneath

Luke Jarrem’s moon sculpture.

Celebrating the 10th-anniversary

of her debut album Some were

meant for Sea, the celebrated

New Zealand songwriter will

play an intimate show directly

underneath the massive glowing

sculpture, in the ambient setting

of Hanover Hall after dark.

The CODE Virtual Reality &

Gaming Centre will transport attendees

to other worlds. The gentre

has proven extremely popular

in the past, offering the public the

opportunity to experience the latest

in virtual reality technology.

This time the centre will be

located in the old Aotea Gifts

shop at 19 George St, as a part of

the science festival trail, a walking

trail leading to festival hubs and

venues all within a 20min walk of

the Octagon.

On the opening night, the

festival presents Science in the

Spotlight, a fireside chat between

festival patron Helen Anderson,

the prime minister’s chief science

adviser Dame Juliet Gerrard, and

the chair of the climate change

commission Rod Carr.

The panel will discuss the challenges

faced by climate change, as

well as the massive leaps forward

that science is currently making

and those that science will need

to make, in order to tackle our

future.

The festival is reimagining

play with the imagination playground,

where children can

build and engineer their own

structures with giant blue building

blocks. The municipal chambers

will play host to imagination

playground, which will mark

the starting point of the festival’s

walking trail.

Open now as a part of a series

of lead-up events, Slice of Life:

The World Famous Dunedin

Study provides an overview of the

Dunedin Study, it’s methods, and

its major findings and celebrates

the lives of the study members.

The exhibition is open 10am-

4pm every day leading up to

and through the festival at 375

Andersons Bay Rd.

All of these events and the

full festival programme of over

100 events is available now, and

SENIORS’ LIVING LIFE

New solution for a

better nights sleep

and improved health!

Deep regenerative sleep is

so important to feeling and

performing our best. A lack of or

poor quality sleep is associated

with increased risk for many

chronic diseases, including obesity,

type 2 diabetes, heart disease,

depression, and many more.

Unfortunately many adults report

occasional bouts of insomnia with

one in three saying they suffer from

sleeplessness or disturbed sleep on

a more chronic basis, to the point

that it regularly impairs daytime

functioning.

The good news is an inexpensive,

naturally occurring amino acid

known as glycine has been clinically

researched in Japan and shown to

be highly beneficial in supporting

healthy sleep. Subjects who were

given three grams of glycine one hour

before bedtime fell asleep much sooner,

as well as exhibited brainwave patterns

associated with deep sleep compared to

control subjects who did not supplement.

On waking the subjects who took the

glycine woke reporting being refreshed

with no indication that glycine produced

a “morning hangover” or any foggy

feeling common with those who use

prescription sleeping medication.

Glycine is known to accumulate in the

pineal gland and is believed to play and

important role in “disconnecting” the

brain from the body during REM (rapid

eye movement) sleep cycles. Glycine also

supports healthy growth hormone (GH)

secretion that is associated with strength,

good health and vitality whereas low

secretion of GH is associated with

advanced ageing and increased disease.

Other clinical research has shown

glycine supplementation to improve

memory and attention in young to older

adults.

Spanish researchers have studied the

effect of glycine supplementation in

600 subjects between the ages of 4 and

85 years suffering from osteoarthritis,

osteoporosis or physical injuries.

Participants were given 5 grams of

glycine in the morning and 5 grams

in the evening. In all cases symptoms

significantly improved.

Glycine is a very safe amino acid

that appears to be highly beneficial for

a quality sleep as well as general good

health.

NOW supplements only use a natural

pharmaceutical grade, free form glycine

that is also suitable for vegetarians

and vegans. NOW operate one of the

most advanced private laboratories

and production facilities in the natural

products industry. They promise they

take every possible step to ensure the

safety and efficacy of every product they

NEED A BETTER

NIGHTS SLEEP?

Sleep is so important to feeling and performing our best. Long

term poor quality sleep is associated with many chronic diseases

and may even reduce our life span. New clinical research has

found a naturally occurring amino acid known as glycine may

restore a good night’s sleep. Japanese researchers found

patients taking glycine fell asleep much sooner and exhibited

brainwave patterns associated with deep sleep. On waking

the patients woke refreshed, clear minded and energetic.

Glycine supports:

• Restful deep sleep

• Going to sleep quickly

• Staying asleep

• Waking refreshed and clear

minded

• Nervous system support, has

a calming effect reducing

anxiety and panic attacks

Golden Healthcare

Group scoops awards

Our three local Golden Healthcare

Group Rest Homes took out the

Safety Star Award, Ace of Initiative

Award, Inspiring Leader of the Year

and Excellent Clinician of the Year at

the Prestige Awards in Wellington.

Staff from over 48 Care Homes

and Villages from Heritage Lifecare

throughout New Zealand gathered to

celebrate their achievements despite a

challenging 2020.

Hoon Hay’s Leslie Doubouzet was

awarded Inspiring Leader of the Year,

overseeing all three sites.

She was awarded for her

precise and impeccable approach,

empowering her teams to take the

lead and to think critically, while

championing clinical excellence with

everyday mentoring.

Leslie says she was overwhelmed

and humbled to win the award.

“During such challenging times last

year, I wasn’t even aware that I was

leading. I just jumped in and worked

on collaboration and making sure

everyone was on the same page and

felt supported. I guess the leadership

just came naturally as a part of that,”

she says.

Marie Jones was awarded the

Excellent Clinician of the Year Award.

Marie is a Senior Registered Nurse

Golden Age, leading Registered

Nurses and Care staff across three

facilities.

Marie says she was completely

overwhelmed and emotional at the

awards night. “To be acknowledged

and rewarded for what I do on a daily

basis just took my breath away. I’ve

never won so much as a raffle ticket

before,” she says.

That acknowledgement was

for being an exceptionally skilled

clinician and inspiring leader

who goes the extra mile to bring a

comforting voice to those in need.

Somerfield Rest Home picked up

the Safety Star Award and the Ace of

Initiative Awards.

Somerfield Manager, Sue, says they

were shocked to win both awards.

“We’re like a family here and it was

just so fantastic to be recognised for

all the hard work we’d done in the last

year,” she says.

They received the Safety Star Award

by reducing falls in the dining area by

a whopping 73 percent.

The solutions were to replace

square tables with round ones,

change table lay outs, enhance the

residents exercise programme and

ensure enough staff were always at

hand. “It was all simple stuff really

and all about working together,” says

Sue.

The Ace of Initiatives Award was

for two initiatives.

“Our kitchen team started an

initiative to improve the visual

presentation of the food for their

dementia residents by using food

moulds.”

The initiative not only improved

resident’s weight levels but also

improved residents’ dignity and

respect. “It’s now embedded into our

action plan,” says Sue.

In addition, the Care staff and

Diversional Therapist introduced a

music therapy programme which is

used to manage residents’ depression,

isolation, behavioural and mobility

challenges. The programme is

proving positive, with staff referring

to music therapy to manage

challenging behaviours before

considering the use of medication.

Says Sue, “We already had music, but

this programme took it to the next

level.”

SENIORS’ LIVING LIFE

Puma ready to pounce

By Ross Kiddie

While the sport utility market is

ever-expanding, the cars within it

are shrinking.

Ford’s newcomer into that

segment is the Puma, a cheeky,

squat SUV that is bulbous and

well rounded; if you think

Nissan Juke then the two aren’t

dissimilar, although my son likens

the front of the Puma’s design,

especially the way the lights are

angled, to Porsche’s Macan.

Of course, the Puma is built for

a completely different market, it

will attract a wide cross-section

of buyers, those from the younger

generation who like its trendy

style, right through to those in

retirement who will benefit from

its ease of access and easy-todrive

characteristics.

Sitting at just 4.2mm, the

Puma is a compact five-seater,

but there’s good load space so

that the belongings we tend to

carry with us can be adequately

stored. Ford claims a 410-litre

load space capacity extending to

1170-litres if the rear seats are

folded forward.

At the other end sits a 999cc

three-cylinder turbocharged

engine.

This configuration is somewhat

the direction Ford has been

travelling in lately – no pun

intended. Some Focus models

have three-cylinder engines, and

I’m sure as other models come

through, so will engines of this

size be utilised.

Even though it is just 1-litre, the

Puma’s unit is quite feisty. Ford

rate it with healthy power outputs

of 92kW and 170Nm, as is the

case with most new-generation

turbo units, it has strong midrange

performance, the torque

figure is broad, being available

all of the way from 1400rpm to

4500rpm.

Adding in the proximity of

ratios through a seven-speed

automatic transmission means

there is little chance of the engine

going off-boost during the

acceleration process.

The Puma lands in two

specification variants. The

evaluation car was the ST-Line

model which lands at $37,990, the

base model car lists at $34,990

and shouldn’t be dismissed, it too

has all of the features which make

today’s modern car so appealing

The ST-Line Puma is

recognised by its high level of

fitment even though cloth trim

greets the occupants. The seat

fabric has red stitching which

fits with the ST (sport tuned)

specification. Satellite navigation

is fitted along with Apple CarPlay

and Android Auto connectivity,

keyless entry and ignition, voice

control and wireless mobile

phone charging. It also gets

• Price – Ford Puma ST-Line,

$37,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4186mm; width, 1805mm;

height, 1550mm

• Configuration – Threecylinder,

front-wheel-drive,

999cc, 92kW, 170Nm,

seven-speed automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

11sec

• Fuel usage – 5.3l/100km

adaptive cruise control which is

part of a five-star Australasian

New Car Assessment Program

safety rating, the Puma is

chock full of the electronic and

mechanical functions that keep

you safe in the first instance and

to protect you in a collision.

The Puma is built in

Romania, it shares many of

the characteristics which make

European Fords so desirable,

especially so with the way it feels

connected to the road and the

associated satisfaction you get as

a driver.

Sure, the power outputs are

such that the Puma will never

set the world alight with its

acceleration or speed, but it

handles beautifully, a lot of

that is attributable to the sport

suspension settings. However,

don’t be put off, ST specification

doesn’t mean a hard ride, I still

rate in-cabin comfort as perfectly

acceptable and, of course, the

base model Puma has standard

spring and damper rates.

Three-cylinder engines are

generally built to enhance

economy and lower emissions.

That can certainly be said for

the Puma’s unit, with little in

the way of reciprocating mass it

contributes to the light weight of

the car in total (1285kg).

That being the case, there are

fairly healthy fuel usage figures

to report. Ford claim up to

5.3l/100km can be achieved on a

combined cycle average.

My time in the evaluation car

consisted of several suburb to city

commutes and a long highway

excursion. The fuel usage readout

was listing at 6.4l/100km when I

took the car back to the Sockburn

dealership. At 100km/h the

readout sits at 4.4l/100km, the

engine spinning over gently at

just 2000rpm in seventh gear.

The Puma is effectively a

replacement for the popular Ford

EcoSport. That car sold well in

New Zealand, it’s my guess the

Puma will pick up where the

EcoSport left off.

Trusts act 2019 – time to act

The Trusts Act 2019 came into effect on

30th January 2021. The 18 month delay

from when the Act was passed to allow

time for settlors, trustees and advisors to

familiarise themselves with the changes

and requirements and review their trust is

nearly up. If you have not already started

your review then put it on your reading

list for this winter.

While there are many new provisions

in the new Act, the main ones that will be

of interest to trustees are the setting out

of the mandatory and default duties of

trustees, the core documents to be held by

trustees

and the

information

that is required

to be provided to

beneficiaries.

Trustees are required to know

the terms of the trust and act

honestly and in good faith in

accordance with the terms

and to be actively involved with the

management of the trust. While this was

always expected, it was not set out in the

legislation before and so possibly not well

understood by people when they agreed to

become a trustee on a trust.

All trustees must hold copies of the core

trust documents, the trust deed and any

variations made to the trust deed, and at

least one trustee must hold all the trust

documents, including records of assets,

minutes and financial records. For some

existing trusts those documents might be

missing, spread across several lawyers and

accountants, or not exist at all. It is time

to now locate and gather these deeds and

records.

The new Act includes a presumption

that basic trust information (the fact

that they are a beneficiary and who the

trustees are) must be made available to

every beneficiary. Beneficiaries are also

to be made aware that they are able to

request additional trust information.

This may possibly pose the biggest

challenge for many settlors and trustees.

However this presumption as to the

supply of information is qualified by

certain considerations that trustees may

take account of in deciding what, if any,

information to provide.

Many family trusts were set up with

a wide class of beneficiaries including

the nieces and nephews and partners of

beneficiaries in addition to the settlors

and their children and grandchildren. It

may never have been intended that most

of these beneficiaries would ever receive

a benefit under the trust but they were

included as possible recipients. If your

trust deed allows a change to beneficiaries

this should be included in your review

now.

At Harmans we have a team with

specialist knowledge available to

provide you with legal advice about your

trust. You can contact Phillipa Shaw at

Harmans on 03 352 2293 to arrange an

appointment to discuss this.

BIG CLUB MATCH-UPS THIS WEEKEND

Chance for rugby, league teams to regroup

• By Chris Barclay

THEY MIGHT not be soaring,

but buoyed by being named the

province’s outstanding sports

club of the year, the Canterbury

Rugby League premiership improvers

have pulled off another

valuable win.

The day after being honoured

at the annual Sport Canterbury

awards, the Eastern Eagles recorded

their third victory of the

season, a 20-18 margin over the

Celebration Lions on Saturday.

Winless after the opening four

games, the Eagles are now well

clear of bottom-placed Papanui

and are just two points out of the

top-four.

They also avenged a campaignlaunching

40-10 loss to the Lions,

turning the tables to record their

third triumph in four weeks.

The Eagles led 20-10 at halftime

at Ngā Puna Wai before

holding off a second half rally

by the Lions, who have now lost

four in a row.

The team is finding that inner

drive to win against all odds. It’s

that hearty east side mentality,”

club president Zion Tauamiti

said.

The 36-year-old is one of

several veterans coaxed out of

retirement to ensure the team

has not had to default.

“It’s been really bad with our

numbers. We’ve had to call on

some players that had retired and

guys have answered the call and

played their hearts out,” he said.

While the Eagles are on an

upward swing, Linwood, leaders

Hornby and Halswell solidified

their play-off plans with convincing

wins.

Undefeated Hornby bounced

back from a stalemate with

Halswell with a 22-6 win over

Riccarton, where father and son

combination Corey and Jayton

Lawrie were among the Panthers

four try scorers headed by James

Baxendale’s double.

Linwood claimed the second

instalment of last year’s grand

final rematch with the Northern

Bulldogs to ensure Andrew

Auimatagi celebrated his 150th

game for the club in style.

The Keas racked up six tries to

spike the Bulldogs’ three-match

Dobson set to continue on winning way

• By Brad Reid

IAN DOBSON has had more

than his fair share of success

when it comes to premier race

meetings at Addington Raceway.

It started in the 1990s with the

Smooth Fella mare, Jam Cover

Girl, named after the business

that allowed Dobson to get

heavily involved in the sport that

is his passion.

What transpired was a golden

run for more than two decades

through the deeds of the great

Christian Cullen, Mainland

Banner and Gotta Go Cullen.

For a man who has seen it all,

you get the sense his current run

of golden results means as much

to him as those 20 years ago and

they are also providing him with

many firsts in the sport as well.

On a cold winter’s night six

weeks ago at Addington, Dobson

won his first Group One race as a

breeder, when Muscle Mountain

and Ben Hope combined to

down Sundees Son in the NZ

Trotting Championship.

“It was just fabulous,” said

Dobson.

“I’ve won a lot of races as you

would know, but the way he won,

running down the best trotter in

the country, was something that

is pretty hard to put in words.

“Being Ben’s first Group One

as well made for a special night.

I don’t have too many late ones

now at my age but it’s fair to say

we had a late night after that,” he

said.

It had been a while between

drinks with Little Rascal

being his most recent Group

performer, but you have to go

back as far as Joyfuljoy winning

the Three-Year-Old Diamond in

2009 to find his last Group One

win as an owner.

Dobson’s involvement might

not be what it once was, but it’s

hardly like his investment in the

sport has ceased.

If anything, it shows how hard

it is to not only get to the top

in this sport as a breeder and

owner, but to stay there requires

all sorts of good fortune not

often accounted for in balance

sheets.

Some of that good fortune

came early last year when he

received a phone call from the

champion horseman, Mark

Purdon.

“He called me and said he had

a yearling that he really liked

and would I like to be involved.

I looked into the pedigree and

liked what I saw. A Bettor’s

Delight out of a Christian Cullen

mare.” Dobson wound up taking

a three-quarter share in the

pacer named Akuta.

The son of Bettor’s Delight out

of the unraced Christian Cullen

mare Adore To Our Dreams

won on debut in the Group

Three Kindergarten Stakes at

Wyndham, he only did what he

had to after leading up in a 1:59.5

mile rate leaving some pundits a

little under-whelmed.

Akuta was then beaten on

his merits a week later in the

Welcome Stakes then secondrated

a full field of yearling sales

graduates in the NZB Harness

Millions final for two-year-old

colts and geldings.

“Akuta is something else,”

One New Zealand Trotting Championship at Addington

for harness racing veteran Ian Dobson (left).

Dobson said.

“I think we will see that on

Jewels Day at Cambridge from

his good draw. He really is

something quite special and will

prove that on Sunday,” he said.

He headed north paying $1.25

to win the Hardwood Breeding

Two-Year-Old Emerald.

Dobson is now targeting

another first as he targets two

Group One winners in a day over

Queen’s Birthday weekend.

Akuta’s handy draw means he

should prove very hard to bowl,

while Muscle Mountain has

also fared better than his main

rival in the 4YO Ruby, Bolt For

Brilliance.

RICHIE MO’UNGA takes

a well-earned break as the

Crusaders juggle the workloads

of their stars with the need

to secure a convincing win

over the Western Force in the

penultimate round of Super

Rugby Trans-Tasman.

After squandering a tryscoring

bonus point with a

sloppy finish to the opening

round clash with the Brumbies,

the Crusaders need maximum

points tomorrow night at

Orangetheory Stadium and the

Blues or Hurricanes to drop

points, or lose.

The Reds also host the Blues

tomorrow night while the Hurricanes

play the Brumbies in

Canberra on Saturday.

Both New Zealand teams have

the maximum 15 points, one

clear of the Crusaders.

Mo’unga had been prominent

in each of the Crusaders 12

matches this season, with the

week off scheduled in advance

to give Burke an opportunity to

develop as a playmaker.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Mo’unga rested for clash against Western Force

David Havili returns to the

starting line-up outside Burke to

guide him when required.

Sam Whitelock was also

missing from the 23-man squad

after the ageless lock came off

the bench in the last weekend’s

win over the Waratahs in Wollongong.

First choice loosehead prop

George Bower will also be in

the stands, enabling imposing

rookie Tamaiti Williams starts

for the first time.

Flanker Ethan Blackadder

is still unavailable after being

concussed against the Reds on

May 22.

Fringe and back-up players populate

the bench with developing

prop Isileli Tu’ungafasi, veteran

lock Luke Romano and Scotlandbound

outside back Josh McKay in

line for rare game time.

In other matches the Highlanders

and Chiefs need to win

against the Waratahs and Rebels

respectively, while other results

need to fall their way to make

the June 19 final.

Full steam ahead for Kia’s Stonic

MOST NEW car distributors

these days will tell you supply

is awkward due to the ongoing

effects of Covid-19 and shipping

delays.

Production of semi-conductors

and other electronic componentry

is well below demand and

that has meant headaches for

the automobile industry. Due

to shortages of these products,

manufacturers simply can’t build

enough cars, and sales are also

on the rise which compounds the

situation.

One company that is weathering

the storm relatively well is

Kia, and Kia in New Zealand is

maintaining good market position.

A lot of that has to do with

the introduction of the Stonic, a

small sport utility vehicle that has

often topped sales in that part of

the market. I guess that is helped

a little by the withdrawal of the

Sportage due to supply issues, a

wait for the Sportage will mean

that when the new generation

model lands here later in the year,

forward orders will buy you into

that variant.

That aside, the Stonic joins a

multitude of small SUVs that

have landed recently including

Ford’s Puma, Toyota’s Yaris Cross

and a revamped Suzuki Ignis, to

name just some.

The Stonic lands here in five

variants with two engine options.

The range starts at $22,990 for the

base model LX with a 1.4-litre,

four-cylinder engine, an extra $5k

will buy you into a mid-range EX

while the Limited specification

model, as tested, lands at $29,990.

In contrast, there’s the option of

a three-cylinder turbocharged

1-litre GT Line unit that lists

at $31,990, and a GT Line+ at

$33,990.

If these driveline options look

familiar, yes, they are pretty much

as what is specified for the Rio

range. The Stonic is based on the

Rio platform, yet it has higher

ground clearance and it is taller.

That’s why it slots into the SUV

category, it also has a chubby,

muscular, wagon-type body style.

Bear in mind though, the Stonic

is just front-wheel-drive, it’s

not a vehicle designed for crosscountry

travel but it does serve its

design concept well, it is an urban

commuter and exudes capable

highway travel. It will also satisfy

in an everyday role, access is easy,

and for someone with old bones

like mine, that is important, along

with a comfortable ride.

Coming from the modern

Korean factories, the Stonic

is chock-full of specification

although there is one minor

omission in the Limited model

that would have me looking at the

mid-spec LX for purchase. The

Limited has leather seat coverings

but there are no seat heaters.

While I appreciate the cost has

EASY ACCESS: The Stonic’s elevated ride height makes it

an attractive purchase for those not so agile.

KIA STONIC LIMITED: Small sport utility vehicle based on Rio platform.

been kept down for desirability,

those seats aren’t inviting when

a cold Canterbury frost hits. The

LX has cloth trim.

Elsewhere, though, there is all

the kit to satisfy, satellite navigation,

radar cruise control and a

raft of safety kit that comes under

the guise of advanced driver

assistance systems. There are no

surprises there, but to say the

Stonic gets a heap of kit to keep

you out of trouble and to protect

you if the worst case scenario

evolves.

Under the bonnet, the 1.4-litre

engine and smooth-shifting sixspeed

automatic transmission are

all traditional, and that is a good

thing, I like a little bit of simplicity

in vehicles and the driveline

in the Stonic is set-up well for its

role.

Kia claims power outputs of

74kW (6000rpm) and 133Nm

(4000rpm), even though they are

generated tall in the rev band the

engine doesn’t work hard. The

Stonic weighs in at just under

1.2-tonne, so there isn’t a lot of

demand on the engine. Power is

willing across the rev band and

it is generated smoothly without

much fuss. For the record, the

Stonic in this form will accelerate

to 100km/h in 11sec and make

120km/h from 80km/h in 7sec.

On the subject of figures,

the four-cylinder Stonic also

fares well in the fuel usage area.

• Price – Kia Stonic Limited,

$29,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4140mm; width, 1760mm;

height, 1520mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1368cc, 74kW,

133Nm, six-speed

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11sec

• Fuel usage – 6.7l/100km

Kia also claims a 6.7-litre per

100km/h combined cycle average.

On my long highway run through

Mid-Canterbury the instantaneous

readout was constantly listing

at around 4.4l/100km (engine

speed 2400rpm at 100km/h),

and when I took the evaluation

car back to the dealership a

7.2l/100km average was showing

on the readout.

On the open road the Stonic

travels quietly with little wind

noise and thorough sound-proofing

underneath.There is a solid

feel of communication through

the steering, the high grade

205/55 x 17in Continental tyres

send all the right messages to the

driver and provide direct steering

accuracy.

Steering input is quick and

reactive, while the entire body

structure feels balanced and controlled

through the suspension.

Incidentally, the latter is a

front-strut/rear-torsion beam

design. Even though the rear

wheels are tied together through

the beam there is just the right

amount of movement on each

side to deal with uneven surfaces.

The spring and damper rates

are biased towards firm, which

helps contain gravitational movement,

but they are not so hard

that occupant comfort is jeopardised,

especially in the rear where

the seats are supportive and

cocooning.

Even though the Stonic is

compact, there is satisfactory leg

and head room all through the

model. There are three seat belts

in the rear and for three adults

there wouldn’t be too much of a

squeeze.

As much as I enjoyed the

evaluation, I’d like to have a drive

in the three-potter, I recall that

engine from the Rio and I can

report it is absolutely delightful.

I’m always happy to report

when a friend buys a new car.

When the Stonic was destined for

our market an acquaintance put

her name down early for one. She

has since received that car and is

delighted with the purchase.

With that type of feedback it’s

no surprise why Stonic sales are

elevated, it’s my hope that supply

is maintained so that others like

my friend can enjoy an affordable

and desirable SUV experience.

The pros and cons of

building sites

When selecting a building site weigh up your lifestyle, family

needs and aspirations before signing up for any section.

Those purchasing early on in the

development of a subdivision will

have more choice of section size and

orientation to the street and sun. As the

individual sites are sold, there may be

less availability though this need not be a

deterrent. With good design any building

site can be made to work.

Selwyn has experienced considerable

growth in recent years. Sub-divisions

have opened up and been built on, with

new developments regularly coming on

stream. Within these, section sizes vary

from around 400 square metres upwards

to 5,000 square metres. Lifestyle blocks

are also scattered around the district.

The size of the house and amount of

yard desired will influence the feasibility

of some building sites as will sun and

wind direction, bearing in mind that a

house can be designed to capture the

sun’s free heat and allow for pleasant

outdoor areas to enjoy.

If the street side of the building site is

north/north west, incorporating fenced

or planted courtyards can offer private

places to entertain and bask in the sun.

Those wanting street presence or keen

on gardening may prefer a corner section

and while it might seem they offer less

privacy, with strategic placement of

fences quite the opposite can be the case.

Weigh up your family’s needs in terms

of the outdoor areas too. Do you want

play areas for your children? Do you

have a need for off-street parking for a

number of vehicles and space for a boat,

caravan or motorhome, which may need

to be parked out of site of the street?

How much lawn or garden do you want?

Start by identifying housing

developments that you like and could see

your family living in. Think also about

the convenience of shops and other

amenities, something that may or may

not be a concern.

Single out possible sections then talk

with a designer or builder. Most building

companies have a good selection of

standard plans as a starting point and

they will usually work with a client to

modify a plan or draw up one that will

work on a particular building site, whilst

also containing the components the

client is seeking within their new home.

Before signing up for any building

site, check the Council land zoning and

recession plane requirements as well as

covenants for the sub-division. These will

show not only how far from a boundary

the house can be sited but also roof

height, permissible building materials,

and acceptable types of fencing, as well as

what can be on view from the street like

a clothes line, caravan or motorhome.

Conducting your research first will save

any frustration or hassles later.

All sections are workable, it is simply

a matter of choosing one that matches

your specific needs.
