DON’T BE a tosser.

That’s the message the Richmond

Residents and Business

Association is giving to “low

lives” who have used their community

as a rubbish dumping

ground in the past decade.

It was why members resorted

to producing their own warning

signs reminding people to stop

trash, including unwanted

furniture.

The area is used by many

who love to take walks near the

former red zone.

“It’s really a deterrent, we have

seen a decrease [in dumping] but

not completely,” said association

chairwoman Vicki Brown.

“We designed and commissioned

these signs to deter

people from fly-tipping in our

area, as well as so close to our

waterways. It was getting excessive.

WINZ staff member

bashed, hospitalised

• By Chris Barclay

A FEMALE front line staff

member has been hospitalised

after being savagely attacked

inside Work and Income

New Zealand’s Sydenham

branch, prompting a review of

security systems.

The Ministry of Social

Development, which oversees

WINZ, and the Public

Service Association are

investigating how the alleged

attacker circumvented

security measures on Friday

morning.

There are a minimum of

two security guards on duty

at WINZ offices with public

access, and up to four are on

shift at busy sites.

Workplace protection

at WINZ was reassessed

after Leigh Cleveland and

Peggy Noble were shot dead

by Russell John Tully inside

the Ashburton branch in

2014.

The Sydenham branch

on Durham St also had an

‘airlock’ door where visitors

can be screened after entering

the front door.

STEPH TE Ohaere-Fox etched

her name in Canterbury rugby

folklore when she became

the province’s first woman to

notch 100 Farah Palmer Cup

appearances last Sunday.

The 36-year-old former Black

Fern, who led Canterbury

to three titles of their four

successive titles before

motherhood took precedence

last season, has returned to

the squad after giving birth to

daughter Anatia.

Te Ohaere-Fox arrived in

Christchurch in 2001 when

taking a summer holiday

to visit her sister and the

budding prop was enticed

to stay and join the

Aranui High School

Academy.

She represented

Canterbury

Schools in 2002,

the Canterbury

development

side the

following

season

ahead of her

FPC debut

in 2004.

Te

Ohaere-Fox

has been a

fixture in the

squad since

apart from

2010-11 when

she stayed in the UK following

the women’s Rugby World

Cup, and 2020 due to

the birth of her second

child.

“Anatia turns one

next month, but I just

couldn’t wait to be back

playing alongside my

mates who are like my

second family,” said

Te Ohaere-Fox, who

featured prominently

in Canterbury’s tense

23-22 win over Wellington at

Rugby Park.

“I just want to thank

all the coaches I’ve had

over the years, all the

players I’ve played

with. I’ve learnt

little things over the

whole time I’ve

been playing. It’d

a credit to all you

guys,” she said.

Originally from

Kerepehi, a small

rural town in the

Firth of Thames,

Te Ohaere-Fox

reckoned

she was always destined to

wear the red and black of

Canterbury.

“It’s funny really,

Kerepehi was my

dad’s club, I used

to watch him play

and that’s where

my love for rugby

started, their colours

are red and black,

Christchurch, my club

here in Canterbury is

red and black, and so

too Canterbury.”

first player since Andrew

Mehrtens to run out 100 times

for Canterbury, something

the former All Black thinks is

pretty special.

“To think what Steph’s

been able to achieve is simply

remarkable, to play for

Canterbury, to lead them, to

play for the Black Ferns, become

a mother . . . returning to play

and continue to be competitive

across three decades is a

massive achievement and

something to be very proud of,”

It was initially feared the

There’s been an increasing

A number of clients have

certainly chosen to issue verbal

threats against staff, they’ve also

chosen to take out their frustrations

on doors and furniture,”

he said.

The union in conjunction

with MSD – who were unable

to respond to The Star yesterday

– was providing practical and

emotional support for the victim

while assessing security measures

is another priority.

“We’ll be looking to identify

what happened, whether the

current safety protocols were

in some way breached,” Rimell

said.

The bigger question is are

there ways to make the workplace

safer? What can be learned

from this to minimise the risk

of this sort of thing happening

again?

The WINZ building, which

also accommodates Oranga

after the incident and re-opened

on Monday, when staff were

counselled.

“It’s an ongoing concern,”

Rimell said.

There’s always a risk with an

angry and upset client that the

situation can escalate to something

more.

“It’s not acceptable, however

someone is feeling, for a public

How our neighbourhood

influences mental health

A NEW Canterbury University

study assessing the relationship

between young people’s mental

health and where they grow up

could influence urban and rural

planning.

Researchers at UC are mapping

localities and investigating

whether living near gaming venues,

takeaways and liquor stores,

or green and blue areas

like parks and rivers are

linked to mental health.

UC public health

lecturer Matt Hobbs,

who is co-investigator

on the project, said

often research focused

on individual aspects,

but mental health was

complex with multiple

influences.

“One of those influences is the

environment in which a young

person grows up in.

“What we’re doing is taking a

cross-section of basically a million

young New Zealand adults

and we’re looking at the whole

country.

“Times have changed in terms

of the way we interact with our

environment but what we’re

particularly interested in is our

current day, and what do our

current environments mean for

our young people.”

Hobbs said the increase of

Matt Hobbs

liquor, gambling and fast food

spaces over the years pushed

people in the wrong direction for

making healthy choices.

“We’ve got children from age

10 to 24 [in the research], so

across that spectrum obviously

there’s a change where young

people can access gambling and

liquor stores themselves once

they turn 18 and move

into young adulthood.

“What we’re doing is

saying if we have a park,

which is great in our

neighbourhood, but it’s

surrounded by liquor

stores and places where

young people can go to

gamble, or even places

like fast food outlets or

dairies, what that means is all of

these things may combine to influence

a young person’s mental

health.”

The research will take into account

the whole neighbourhood.

It will also split mental health

issues into groups, looking at

emotional, behavioural, selfharm,

substance abuse problems

among people.

It is hoped the research will

help community advocates to

persuade policy makers to

take heed and include findings

from the two-year study in

future planning.

CITY COUNCILLOR Phil

Mauger appears close to

confirming he will run for

mayor.

Mauger has fended off questions

from The Star, only saying

he “was definitely still considering

it”.

“I’m

definitely still

considering it,

I’d be lying if

I said I wasn’t.

I’m just doing

a bit of

homework.

I’ll make my

mind up one

way or another

before

Christmas or

in the next

couple of

months,” he

said.

But sources

say Mauger’s

announcement

is imminent

and the

political jostling in recent weeks

over the seating capacity at the

multi-use arena will be one of

the platforms for his campaign.

Former mayor Garry Moore

said yesterday he also had heard

Mauger would run for mayor in

next year’s local body elections.

The race will be wide open after

Lianne Dalziel said she would

not seek a fourth term.

“Absolutely . . . it’s obvious,

isn’t it? It’s about next year’s mayoral

campaign. You’ll see more

and more of this – you’ll see

issues raised to raise profiles,”

Moore said of the controversy

over the multi-use arena.

The city council voted in favour

of downsizing the stadium’s

capacity from 30,000 seats to a

minimum of 25,000 last month

to bring the $473 million project

back within the budget.

Mauger, and councillors James

Gough, Sam MacDonald, Aaron

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Keown and Catherine Chu all

voted against the decision, and

have said they will try and have

it overturned.

The controversial verdict was

followed by a more than 20,000

signature petition demanding

the city council to overturn its

decision.

The 25,000 seat decision

sparked concerns the city will be

unable to accommodate major

events, including All Blacks

matches and large-scale concerts.

Moore said he hoped their bid

to overturn the decision would

backfire the same way the Jade

Stadium upgrades faced public

backlash in the years before the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

“I just think that these five

councillors are pushing this for

political gain and to pander to a

section of our community who

are obsessed with rugby. There

are more important things for

them to focus on.”

Mauger did not respond yesterday

to Moore’s comments.

But last week he told The

Star the city council needed

to honour what it promised to

Cantabrians, especially when

competing with Dunedin’s stadium

to secure future All Blacks

matches.

“We promised people 30,000

seats and we should give them

what they wanted,” he said.

“What’s an extra little bit now

to make the thing really good?

People are moving into Christchurch

from Australia; they’re moving

down from Auckland – you

get one shot at getting it right.”

Moore was also concerned the

“political campaign” was being

orchestrated by New Zealand

Rugby due to its commercial

interest in the project.

He questioned how long rugby

was going to be a driver of a stadium

and whether this was what

Cantabrians truly wanted.

NZR did not respond to

Moore’s comments yesterday.

“It’s a luxury product of the

city that shouldn’t be driven by

self-interested groups like the

rugby union,” Moore said.

“Most people in Christchurch

want roads fixed, rubbish picked

up or are fighting to keep our

water [in the city]. A lot of people

couldn’t even afford to go to a

test if we had one.”

As the fight continues to retain

the stadium’s original design,

Moore believed it was going to

become a political battle between

the left and the right within the

city council.

“It always has and always will

be.”

Making a big splash: The little

It is a time-honoured

tradition that had been

a long time coming for

a New Zealand eight.

Almost half a century

after Simon Dickie was

tossed into the waters

at Munich’s Olympic

Rowing Regatta

Centre, Cantabrian

Sam Bosworth made

a splash in Tokyo. Chris

Barclay catches up with

New Zealand’s latest

gold medal-winning

coxswain

TRADITION: Sam Bosworth

is tossed into the water by

his crew after winning the

gold medal. (PHOTO: LEON

NEAL/GETTY)

There was no resistance – that

would be futile. And, really, it’s

a perk of the job, the post-race

dunking for a triumphant eights’

last member across the line.

Sam Bosworth was gleefully

launched into the Sea Forest Waterway

last Friday. The 27-yearold

coxswain is familiar with

the notion of it’s all ‘water off a

duck’s back’.

The slightest component of

an elite rowing crew invariably

needs the thickest skin. Size-wise,

the cox is comparable to a jockey,

though Bosworth’s horsepower

does talk back.

Bosworth once considered the

racing industry as a profession

when he was growing up in

North Canterbury – a relative

was a rider turned trainer, now

based in the Waikato.

Instead the middle child of

three brothers opted for uncle

Tom Hazlett’s other sporting

passion.

Hazlett was a cox at Christ’s

College, and Bosworth followed

that example after transitioning

from cricket at the end of Year 9.

“I rang him (Hazlett) and

he said ‘Give it a crack’. I was

thinking about being a jockey as

well, it’s a pretty awesome sport,

but I was just so wrapped up in

rowing.”

Henry Smith, master in charge

of rowing at Christ’s College,

is relieved the old boy chose

his sport when reflecting on a

decade-long association.

Smith started coaching

Bosworth from under-16 level

through to under-18 level with

current New Zealand eights

coach Tony O’Connor.

He realised Bosworth had

the requisite skills long before

Christ’s College won the Maadi

Cup in 2012 on Lake Ruataniwha.

“I remember saying to the New

Zealand selector at the time the

difference between our crew and

everyone else was the pilot we

had on board. And if they let that

one go they’d kick themselves.

We always knew he had something,”

Smith said.

While you can mould an astute

coxswain, certain elements

cannot be taught.

“It’s probably 50-50,” Smith

reckoned.

The feel and motivation, some

people have and some people

don’t,” Smith said.

The x-factor and the

personality the coxswain has,

their ability to articulate it and

bring the best out in a crew, that’s

something they’ve got to

develop themselves.”

tactician behind golden glory

Smith said while the coxswain

was the tiniest crew member –

the minimum weight is 55kg and

rarely exceeded – the weight of a

race sat squarely on their slender

shoulders.

“You push them off 45 minutes

before the start time, it’ll be an

hour before you see them again

and during that time the coxon

is in charge,” he said.

“It’s not like rugby where the

water boy can go on, he’s all

mic’d up and he can deliver messages

from the coach.

They’re a tactician on the

boat, a coach on the water . . .

you’ve got to be pretty self-assured,

be able to motivate, steer

the boat and they have to take

quite a bit of criticism,” he said.

They’re the person in charge

of asking the athlete to deliver

more and more when they’re

absolutely exhausted. They must

have a mindset where they can

take it on the chin and grow

without taking a whole lot of

stuff to heart.”

Bosworth admitted it wasn’t

all smooth sailing, but the

spiky observations and spirited

debates made all those hours

on Lake Karapiro worthwhile

when the eight emulated the

black-singleted 1972 crew to win

rowing’s blue riband event.

“To be a good coxswain you

have to work with people, that

VICTORY: Sam Bosworth (far right) on the podium in Tokyo, and coxing the eight to glory.

may be one of my strengths,”

said the Lincoln University

Bachelor of environmental management

and planning graduate,

who has been based at Rowing

New Zealand’s finishing school

in Cambridge since 2016.

“I don’t think you have to be

mates, you just have to make

sure that every day you turn up

to training you’re bringing your

best self.

“I play golf with some of the

boys. There’s a time to be serious

and a time when we can have

a laugh.”

Bosworth, who also competes

for the Avon Rowing Club,

traced his devotion to rowing

back to selection in the South

Island squad at under-17 level,

and a successful regatta with the

lightweight coxed four.

“That’s when I thought ‘This

could be a go’. I remember watching

the Olympics thinking ‘Man,

I’d love to go there one day’.”

Christ’s College’s Maadi Cupwinning

exploits nine years ago

was also critical.

“We won and two coxswains

went up to triaI. I was picked

for the New Zealand junior

(under-19) coxed four. If we hadn’t

been successful at school that opportunity

may have never arisen.”

Once he completes his fortnight

of managed isolation in

Christchurch, Bosworth plans

to visit his old school and carry

on a mentoring programme he

benefited from as a teenager, a

gesture Smith would appreciate

before the next Maadi Cup in

late March.

“When he’s back he’ll hop in

and do a session or two with the

boys. What he can articulate

can take us weeks to identify

through the eye. That’s a huge

benefit,” he said.

Bosworth thought RNZ duties

resumed in October, and until

then he was happy for an octuple

scull to stay in storage.

“I’ll take some time off, have a

bit of a break and enjoy catching

PHOTOS: GETTY, REUTERS

up with family and friends. I

can’t wait to get down to Wanaka

and go skiing,” he said.

His parents Pete and Ange

have a vineyard in Waipara so

there could be some odd jobs

that need doing.

And when he returns to

Cambridge there’s also a stressfree

way to navigate Karapiro,

with brothers Olly and Tom.

“We’ve got a speedboat. Mum

and dad were up at Christmas

and it was the first time I’d been

on the lake in a non-rowing boat.

They couldn’t believe how

far we rowed up the lake. I said

‘Yeah, it’s 30k return at least once

a week.”

There are a variety of shapes and sizes

Avoid using icy cold water when

Life or death mission to fetch defibrillator

• By Susan Sandys

MICHAEL OAKLEY was

perhaps given the most

important instruction of his

life recently, when he was told

to go and fetch a community

defibrillator.

Melissa Scarlett gave him the

directive, as she was performing

cardiopulmonary resuscitation

on her father Tony Scarlett at the

family’s Hororata farm.

“It was: ‘S**t, I think I know

where the defibrillator is,’ but I’m

not sure,” Oakley said.

That was his thought as he

ran and jumped into his car and

drove towards the township.

He ultimately succeeded in

the challenge, resulting in the

survival of 69-year-old Tony,

who had been working on the

family farm when he had a

cardiac arrest and collapsed.

Oakley is now urging anyone

who does not know where their

local community’s defibrillator is

located, to find out.

The life or death story began

1.48pm on July 20. That was

the time that Oakley got a call

from a friend, who had just been

talking to Tony on the phone.

The friend told him Tony was

driving a tractor and not feeling

good, and asked him to go and

check on him. The friend also

phoned emergency services,

however, was not able to give

them the exact address.

Oakley drove about 4km

to his neighbour’s farm. He

headed to a rear paddock after

spotting a tractor there, and

came upon Melissa, who was

with her 11-year-old son Leithan,

undertaking CPR on her father

in a dairy lane. He parked

as close as he could and ran

towards the scene, but only got

within about 20m before Melissa

gave him the instruction to go

and get the defibrillator.

Oakley said as he drove away,

he thought the defibrillator

would either be at the town

garage, school or fire station. He

phoned his wife, Kate, to ask her

to phone someone else to find

out. About three minutes after

leaving the farm, he was pulling

up at the garage, GAS Hororata,

when Kate phoned back to say it

was there.

Garage manager Margaret

Cross threw him the key, he got

the defibrillator and raced back

to the farm. He arrived back at

the scene to see one of the farm’s

workers, Anthony Sayer, who

is also a Hororata firefighter,

having taken over CPR.

Oakley and Melissa applied

the defibrillator pads to Tony,

and followed the machine’s audio

instructions, delivering shocks.

“It was two, maybe three goes

before we got his heart to start

again, he started to breathe,”

Oakley said.

“He’s a lucky man.”

Five to six minutes after

Oakley arrived at the scene with

the defibrillator, the Hororata

Volunteer Fire Brigade arrived.

About 10 minutes later, St John

ambulance services arrived,

followed by the rescue

helicopter.

Oakley urged people to

find out where their local

defibrillators were, or even

download the AED Locations

app which has this information.

Tony is making a good

recovery at home after being

discharged from hospital on

Friday.

He and wife Jean also credit

the defibrillator with saving his

life.

Tony said the last thing he

remembered before waking

up in hospital a few days after

he collapsed on the farm, was

talking to his wife Jean on

the phone to tell her he did not

feel well. He had phoned Jean

after getting out of the tractor

where he had just made the call

to the friend who alerted Oakley.

“It’s absolutely amazing that

they have got these defibrillators

around the community, I didn’t

even know that they had one

there actually,” Tony said.

Jean said the call for help

from her husband came to

the landline, at their home in

Greenpark. It was fortunate

she was right by the phone at

that time, doing bookwork. She

stayed on the line as she used

her cellphone to call daughter

Melissa, and then emergency

services.

“I was yelling at him: ‘Keep

breathing, keep breathing’,” Jean

said.

She then heard the rescue scene

unfolding as she stayed on the

landline, including Melissa and

Leithan dragging Tony to the

dairy raceway and then Melissa

giving her son instructions to

hold up his granfather’s legs to

keep the circulation going

around his heart.

Their son-in-law Deane Parker

said he was proud of his wife

Melissa and his two sons for

the role they played. Leithan’s

younger brother Eddy, 7, rode his

bicycle to the cow shed to meet

emergency services and tell them

where to go.

“It was quite the family affair,”

Parker said.

Jean thanked “divine providence”

for people coincidentally

being in the right place at the

right time to take the crucial

phone calls made that day.

It was the second heart

attack her husband had

survived, the last one about 15

years ago.

The cardiologist said to

us: ‘You have a 10 per cent of

surviving a cardiac arrest outside

of hospital.’ He said: ‘You have

survived two cardiac arrests

outside of hospital, there are no

statistics’,” Jean said.

Grandmother’s wish comes true ADVERTISEMENT

KORU NUTRITION

For Grandmother, Pauline,

seeing her grandchild suffer

from dry, irritated, scratchy skin

was heartbreaking. From birth,

she watched her beautiful Te

Aroha suffer. “Her parents were

doing everything they could but

nothing was working.” It was

holding Te Aroha back from

being the confident, wonderful

child that Pauline knew her to be

in private.

“At home, she was so

extroverted but we noticed that

she would pull back in a public

setting. There was no doubt that

her skin condition was affecting

her confidence.”

“I had always wished there

was something that I could do.

As a grandmother, I want to

protect and help my mokopuna

to succeed but with this...there

was nothing I could do; I felt

helpless.”

Having come across Koru

Nutrition’s Skin Fx, Pauline

loved the fact that it was New

Zealand made, all-natural and

dermatologically tested for

safety. She was ecstatic to finally

find a product that could help.

Unlike other health creams

that simply moisturize, Skin Fx

is designed to soothe, nourish,

protect and moisturize skin.

Koru’s Skin Fx is a non-greasy

formula made in New Zealand

without any nasty chemicals,

fillers or steroids.

Since this discovery, it has

been a complete turn-around.

Within the month, Pauline’s

granddaughter became such a fan

that she was applying it herself

without having to be told.

“She is over the moon! She

is so confident in herself now. I

love the fact that Koru Nutrition

has given me a way to help my

mokopuna. She often will give

me a hug and say, ‘Thank you

Nanny for that special cream’”

“I can’t praise it enough. It has

helped her and it has helped her

siblings & cousins too. I make

sure all my kids have it in their

houses.”

“My only request now is that

Koru will work on a cream for

their ears, so I don’t have to

ask them to do their chores a

thousand times.”

THIRTY-ONE Canterbury

police officers have suffered back

injuries after wearing upgraded

bullet and stab-proof vests.

Since the $20.7 million roll-out

of UK-manufactured Ballistic

Armour System (BAS) began

on December 1, 2019 there

have been 155 cases across New

Zealand to April 31 this year,

latest figures show.

Canterbury has recorded

the second highest number of

injuries, followed by the Counties

Manukau district (40).

The injuries, usually suffered

when entering or exiting vehicles,

have prompted police to review

how they are worn by officers.

Injuries are reportedly more

likely to occur when the BAS is

enhanced by hard armour plates

(HAP).

Police officers must have

HAP with them whenever

they are deployed, but it is only

mandatory to wear them when

attending an incident where

firearms are, or could, be present.

However, some officers have

opted to wear the HAP at all

times.

The police officers’ union, the

New Zealand Police Association,

says it is not worried about the

numbers of injuries.

PAINFUL SOLUTION:

Back injuries have been a

ramification of the enhanced

protection.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

“We are not concerned with

the very limited number of

injuries, given the vests are used

every day across New Zealand by

thousands of officers,

but we accept

they were never

designed to have the

ballistic plates worn

full-time which,

due to the increased

risks of firearms,

many officers are

choosing to do,” said association

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Bulletproof vests cause

back injuries for police

president Chris Cahill.

“We understand police are

aware of this and are considering

options to address this, one of

which is to encourage officers

experiencing issues to have their

vests refitted to see if this can

alleviate the issue.”

Cooneen Protection’s vest

superseded the heavier armour

introduced in 2006.

The new vests weigh about

5kg with the removable ballistic

plates adding about 3.8kg, depending

on the size of the officer.

Cahill said the association was

consulted before the purchase

of the new vests and understood

they were the best available for

the deployment and

risk environment at the

time.

“A lighter ballistic vest may

have been available, however it

is our understanding these

would not have provided the

protection from stabbing

and cutting weapons that pose

the more likely risk to police

officers in New Zealand,”

he said.

So far police have provided

vests to 7766 staff. The process

is complete in 11 of the 12 police

districts, with Central Districts

due to join the roll-out soon.

RAPPER SCRIBE has taken to

social media to advertise for a

“young Scribe” to play a younger

version of him in a six-figure

story of his life.

Scribe is poised to make a comeback

series, Scribe – The Return of the

Crusader, which is coming to

TVNZ OnDemand later this year.

The series’ 12 episodes will

follow the rapper’s redemption

arc, as he reflects on his career

and works on new music.

And a casting call is on the

hunt for a young person to play a

younger version of the Christchurch-based

musician.

While his music is what

launched Scribe’s career, in the

years following his rise to fame

the rapper made headlines after

He was sentenced to jail time at

the end of 2018 following a series

of bail breaches. After a fourmonth

A CHRISTCHURCH-based

health supplements company

has been fined $377,000 after

“reckless” marketing suggested

royal jelly products came from

New Zealand, when in fact they

were sourced in China.

New Zealand Health Food

Company Ltd sold royal jelly

health supplements under three

of its brands – New Zealand

Health Food, Manuka South, and

Kiwi Natural Health – with product

labels and marketing which

gave the impression they were

made with local ingredients.

However, the main constituent

ingredient, royal jelly – a gelatinous

substance produced by

honey bees which is a rich source

of highly concentrated nutrients –

was in fact sourced in China, with

the majority of secondary ingredients

also coming from overseas,

including Indonesia, Malaysia,

China, Papua New Guinea, North

America, and Samoa.

The company, which was

established in 1988 and has 15

full-time employees, was charged

by the Commerce Commission

under breaches of the Fair

Trading Act 1986, for engaging

in conduct that was liable to

mislead the public over place of

origin in their royal jelly health

supplements. The charges carried

a maximum penalty of a

$600,000 fine.

The Commerce Commission’s

main concerns came over the

labelling of the supplement’s jars

or containers.

Labels for a New Zealand

Health Food royal jelly jar of 365

capsules featured two bees on a

honeycomb in front of pasture

and mountain scenery.

It also featured an outline of

the map of New Zealand, along

with the words ‘New Zealand’,

and a statement: “The New Zealand

Health Food Company is

dedicated to bringing you premium

quality products which have

been sourced from the pristine

environment that is synonymous

with New Zealand”.

The Commerce Commission

said that the “overall impression”

was “false and/or misleading”,

because the royal jelly was from

China and not New Zealand.

On Tuesday at the district

court, the company was sentenced

after earlier pleading

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Health company fined over ‘misleading’ labels

guilty to three representative

charges laid under the Fair Trading

Act.

Appearing for the Commerce

Commission, Alysha McClintock

said while the labels stopped

short of saying they had been

made in New Zealand, “just

about everything they did say

conveys exactly that”.

McClintock said the company’s

conduct was, at a minimum,

“highly reckless”, if not

deliberate.

The company’s Manuka South

brand, which is largely made up

of manuka honey products, also

came under scrutiny with its

royal jelly range.

The summary of facts,

obtained by the New Zealand

Herald, says that some Manuka

South royal jelly jars, which were

in use since at least October 2019,

had “100% New Zealand” text.

And when considered along-

given the impression the

product was New Zealandsourced.

side the brand name, Manuka

South, with manuka strongly

associated with New Zealand,

and “south” the South Island

of New Zealand, it created an

impression that the royal jelly

and other ingredients were from

New Zealand, the Commerce

Commission said.

New Zealand’s competition,

consumer and regulatory agency

calculated that the company directly

earned around $1 million

from the offending products.

Misleading conduct around

the place of origin of goods, the

Commerce Commission said,

can reduce trust in “100% New

Zealand” or “NZ made” claims

made by other businesses and

disadvantage competitors who

do make products here.

Defence counsel Richard Raymond

QC, said while it looked

bad, he rejected any suggestion

that the conduct was deliberate.

The lawyer accepted that the

conduct of company was “highly

careless” but denied it was “deliberate”.

The royal jelly product had

become part of their Manuka

South range, which were all

genuinely New Zealand sourced

products, Raymond told the

court.

The mistake came, he said,

when the marketing manager at

the time included the royal jelly

alongside other manuka honey

products.

“Clearly, it was, at best, sloppy

and poor from the team responsible

and of course as soon as it

was identified to senior management

[…], it was changed,” he

said.

The company started the process

of changing the labels even

before it heard from the Commerce

Commission, recognising

changes needed to be made,

Raymond said.

Judge David Ruth, however,

concluded that the conduct was

“reckless”.

He highlighted the fact

that in 2012 the Commerce

Commission wrote to the

company’s founder and majority

shareholder Rob Haines, and

other Kiwi traders, with advice

over place of origin labelling in

dietary supplements.

INNOVATIVE research using

DNA could help New Zealand’s

critically endangered Kakapo

By investigating the DNA

structure of kakapo, Canterbury

scientists hope to find the cause

of hatching failure, a factor in

the low number of kakapo in

New Zealand.

Kakapo are among New Zealand’s

most critically endangered

native birds with a total known

adult population of only 202.

Canterbury University conservation

geneticist associate

professor Tammy Steeves said

scientists have long thought that

kakapo had high infertility rates,

but recent work by colleagues

has found that a large number of

eggs previously deemed infertile

“actually aren’t infertile.”

Steeves believes her team’s

research to now investigate the

relationship between DNA structure

and early embryo death or

hatching failure will be “the first

in the world.”

“We’re currently working

with some cell lines that were

collected from kakapo about

10 years ago to see if we can

generate a picture of the kakapo

chromosomes,” she said.

From this, Steeves’ research

team wants to sequence individual

chromosomes looking

for structural variants – that is

regions of DNA that have been

repeated a number of times

or where parts are missing or

flipped around.

“We’re curious about what roll

those types of difference in DNA

can have,” she said.

“It’s more likely they’re going

to be associated with different

traits, and therefore associated

with the traits we’re looking for.”

Steeves said it was hard for the

Department of Conservation to

mitigate things like infertility or

low hatching success while we

don’t know what is causing it.

Steeves and her team would

break new ground not only by

looking at kakapo’s structural

variants but also by looking at

the link between structural variants

and low hatching success.

They have been working on the

endangered bird as part of the

Kakapo 125 + Consortium, set

up in 2015 by Department of Conservation

kākāpō recovery team

scientific advisor Andrew Digby.

He said it was “great to see

the data being used to help with

kakapo conservation.”

Assuming the work proves

successful with kakapo, Steeves’

team aims to work with DOC’s

Tara Iti Recovery Group, and iwi

and hapū representatives, to apply

the same techniques to New

Zealand’s most endangered bird,

the tara iti (fairy tern).

Steeves will present her team’s

research at a free public lecture

on October 13 called Little

I’M NOT a great fan of a new

stadium at all but if we have

to have it, what about seating

for 20,000 and standing room

only for another 10,000?

As one who used to stand on

the embankment at Lancaster

Park and as a result got in

cheaper than those seated,

standing room in a new

stadium should allow cheaper

entry than the exorbitant

prices charged for seating.

If it’s good enough to have

standing room for concerts,

why not rugby matches?

Also as the cost of the

stadium will almost certainly

exceed the present estimate,

neighbouring councils should

contribute to the cost given

their people will attend stadium

The uncertainty of the

events of the world are beyond

anything I could ever have

imagined only two short years

ago, but the events of New

The laws and legislations

in this country.

court of law because someone

Who defines what is hate?

Who defines whether someone

There’s such a fine line

between sense and sensibility.

It’s too big, and because of the

restrictions and the potential

to innocently offend, some

may climb mentally into a cave

for fear of saying the wrong

thing, and may never be able to

climb out of their depression

again. What will then become

Nurses pay

Given his union background

I was somewhat surprised

to see Minister of Health

berating the nurses for not

Any agreement made by

representatives during a pay

is subject to the rank and file

I applaud the nurses for

exercising their democratic

rights in rejecting the offer

which I understand was not

only about recognising the

value of the work they do but

also about gaining written

guarantees for all the other

promised deliverables that

We will all at some point

indicates the country cannot

afford the $408 million

requested.

He has, however, found $500

million for administration for

this Government’s ideological

aspirations for health which

no doubt will not deliver one

more doctor, nurse or hospital

If our health system is to

return to the standard of care

we expect, our nurses need

to be valued, resourced and

rewarded for the very considerable

responsibility they carry

every hour they are caring for

our citizens. – Ian Lees

Water policy

I started to look into the proposed

Three Waters policy to see

what all the fuss was about and

soon realised this affects all New

Zealanders, not just our farmers.

The Government’s advertisement

on television promoting

Three Waters uses simplistic,

child like language and ideas, and

tells people there is only one way

to have clean water, their way.

According to Westland district

Mayor Bruce Smith, the Government

water rights and infrastructure to

central government for them to

take over and upgrade the whole

system.

My understanding, if councils

don’t opt into Three Waters,

we will have unachievable water

rates increases but water

regulation will remain in council

control.

If councils do opt in, water

rates will still be approximately

three times what they are at present

but we will have no control

over how water is used and there

is no guarantee of no further

water rate increases, plus the $160

billion debt to pay back.

Central government wants us

to think these are the only two

options at hand. There are always

more options.

Challenge to understand

water reform programme

IT’S BEEN a long week with

considerable focus on the

Government’s Three Waters

Reform programme.

Getting our heads around the

process of the reforms and the

implications for our community

has been challenging for us,

which means that it is even more

troubling for our residents.

A number of emails have come

in recently that raise questions

about when residents will be

consulted. That is an important

question that needs answering.

Our drinking water, wastewater

and stormwater assets are

valued at $6.9 billion, and they

are listed as strategic assets

under our significance and

engagement policy. This means

if we were to transfer ownership

of these assets, we would need to

undertake a special consultative

procedure.

Councils have been given

eight weeks to absorb and

analyse the information that

has been provided by the

Government, and to provide

some feedback on aspects of

the model (i.e. aggregation of

councils’ three waters services

into four regional water entities

‘owned’ by all the councils in

each of the regions).

At this stage it is hard to get a

grip on the consequences for us

here in Christchurch and across

SENIORS’ LIVING LIFE

Ford’s old favourites pave way for Escape

By Ross Kiddie

For those like me who have

reached their senior years, you

will remember fondly the cars we

grew up with, most of which were

English.

The Ford Motor Company was

well represented here – Popular,

Anglia and Prefect were names

I remember well, in fact it was

the family’s three-speed Prefect I

learnt to drive in.

If you had access to a hefty

amount of overseas funds you

may well have been lucky enough

to score a Consul, Zephyr or even

Zodiac.

Those cars set the foundation

for Ford becoming a trusted and

recognised brand in New Zealand

and today nothing has changed,

the product line-up is extensive

and is sourced globally.

One of the latest to come my

way was the Spanish-built Escape,

a mid-size sport utility vehicle

that represents everything a buyer

would want in a family wagon.

The new Escape lands in a

five-model line-up, two and fourwheel-drive

variants, and now

there is the option of a plug-in

hybrid. This evaluation focuses on

the ST-Line four-wheel-drive at

$50,990.

Prices for the range start at

$42,990 and end at $55,990 for

petrol-only models. The hybrids

are likely to land in New Zealand

towards the end of the year and

will be priced at $60,990 and

$66,990.

The newcomer is flash, it has

a bold, muscular body style that

is curvy and has flowing lines, it

shows real presence and follows

similar styling to that which has

made Ford’s small SUV – the

Puma – so attractive.

The Escape carries on as before,

it gets the 2-litre EcoBoost

engine of its predecessor, the

four-cylinder unit is a real gem

in terms of performance and

economy.

The engine is rated at 183kW

and 387Nm, which is due to the

turbocharging system fitted to

the twin-camshaft, 16-valve unit.

It offers significant boost at a low

operating area. Peak power arrives

at just 5700rpm while maximum

torque is available at 3100rpm.

The significance of those figures is

the punchy way the engine works,

it is feisty and lively, yet it delivers

with little audible sound.

If you also factor in the way

power is transferred through

a silky-smooth eight-speed

automatic gearbox, the driveline is

structured for quick momentum

and it has a responsive nature.

The Escape in GT-Line form

will accelerate to 100km/h from

a standstill in 8sec and will

complete an overtaking time of

5.2sec to make 120km/h from

80km/h.

Ford is very proud of its

EcoBoost range of engines, they

have been developed not so

much for the performance I’ve

just commented on, but they also

stand out for economy.

• Price – Ford Escape ST-

Line, $50,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4620mm; width,

2000mm; height, 1666mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1999cc, 183kW, 387Nm,

eight-speed automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

8sec

• Fuel usage – 8.6l/100km

I drove the new Escape many

times at city speeds commuting

for a fair chunk of my evaluation,

normally that type of running

isn’t kind to economy. However,

the fuel usage readout was listing

at a respectable 9.6-litre per

100km when I took the car back

to the Sockburn dealership.

That’s not that far distant to

Ford’s combined cycle average

claim of 8.6l/100km, and that’s

put into perspective when you

take into account the 4.5l/100km

figure sitting instantaneously at

a steady 100km/h, the engine

turning over very relaxed at just

1500rpm.

I’m a big European Ford fan,

and the way the designers have

engineered balance and handling

ability into the chassis of a sport

utility vehicle is a credit to them.

There is a lot of steering feel and

strong self-cantering application

within the steering mechanism.

Turn-in is direct and crisp.

The Escape is fitted with stateof-the-art

gear for convenience

and safety. Some of the major

items include satellite navigation,

voice recognition communication

and infotainment, Apple CarPlay

and Android Auto, and radar

cruise control.

Of course, it is also five-star

Australasian New Car Assessment

Program safety rated.

The new Escape has a lot to live

up to. I remember when the first

iteration landed in 2001 it was

competing head-to-head with

Mazda’s Tribute, essentially the

same car. The Escape started with

a V6 engine and then, of course,

a Volvo five-cylinder unit as

generations changed.

Since then turbocharged

engines of varying capacities have

powered the Escape and its shortterm

namesake, the Kuga, and

buyers have related well to those

exciting power plants.

The Escape lands here with a

strong European feel, which is

something I particularly like.

However, that doesn’t make it

awkward, the best of all things

Ford does is characterised in

the Escape and there is plenty of

choice within the line-up to meet

all tastes and demands.

SENIORS’ LIVING LIFE

Thursday August 5 2021 The Star 27

To Will or not to Will?

Many people put off making a Will - it’s

almost as if making a Will acknowledges

one’s own mortality! But if you die

without a properly made Will, you are

said to have died intestate and your estate

will be settled according to the provisions

of the Administration Act (“the Act”).

Under the provisions of the Act your

estate will be divided in set proportions

amongst your surviving spouse, children

and/or immediate family. Almost

inevitably the result is that your estate is

divided in a manner different to how you

would have wished. On the other hand, if

you have made a Will, you can relax in the

comfort of knowing that your affairs will

be administered in accordance with your

wishes.

As well as dealing with your property,

your Will can also be used to give

directions as to your preference for burial

or cremation and the type of funeral

you desire. If you have young children,

you should always take the opportunity

to appoint a guardian to represent their

interests in the event of your sudden

death.

If you have a child with special needs

and it would be inadvisable for him or

her to receive a direct cash payment

from your estate, it is possible to set up a

Testamentary Trust in your Will, to ensure

that the child’s needs are met during their

lifetime. Upon their death, the remainder

of the capital and interest of the Trust can

then be divided among other beneficiaries.

Similarly, people will often choose to

leave their surviving spouse a life interest

only in their share of a house property

or other investments, so that they enjoy

the use of the asset (or the income from

it) during the remainder of their lifetime,

but on their death, the capital is passed to

the children of the relationship. This can

suit second or subsequent relationships

and can have the additional benefit of

the surviving spouse having less assets in

their name if they are later asset tested for

Even if you have a Will don’t forget that

it is a document that needs to be reviewed

from time to time as your circumstances

change. A good rule of thumb is to

review every five years or if something

significant happens in the meantime.

There are certain events which make it

absolutely essential to update your Will.

For example, if you marry or remarry,

your Will is automatically revoked, unless

it was made in contemplation of that

marriage. Likewise, if your relationship

comes to an end or your marriage is

dissolved, or if you have wound up

your Family Trust your Will should be

reviewed. Give Phillipa Shaw a call on

379 7835 to arrange an appointment

to discuss how a new Will would be of

benefit to you.

SENIORS’ LIVING LIFE

Amazing health miracles

from the silkworm

Serrapeptase an enzyme produced in

silkworms may become one of the most

widely used natural health solutions

for its ability to replace the majority of

anti-inflammatory drugs and bypass

operations. It is nature’s answer to pain,

chronic inflammation and clogged

arteries. Enzymes are essential for

life. Constantly working to build and

regenerate the body, they help digest

food, break down toxins and cleanse

the blood, in addition to thousands of

other functions. A lack of enzymes in the

body leads to food intolerances, allergies,

digestive issues, disease and poor health.

Studies show an average 70-year old has

only 20 percent of the enzymes found in

the body of a 20-year old.

Serrapeptase is a natural antiinflammatory,

which can clean, clear and

reduce inflammation while dissolving

non-living tissue including blood clots,

cysts, arterial plaque and mucus. One of

its major benefits is its ability to reduce

pain.

The serrapeptase enzyme was first found

in the intestine of the silkworm in the late

1960’s. The silkworm uses it to dissolve the

hard cocoon, allowing the moth to escape

as well as to digest the tough mulberry

leaves it feeds on. Serrapeptase can now be

produced commercially by a fermentation

process of the microorganism Serriata

E15. It is prescribed by doctors across

Europe and Asia.

Clinical studies over the last 40

Benefits from

the silkworm

Serrapeptase, an enzyme first discovered in the silkworm, could

become one of the most widely used natural health remedies due

to its ability to potentially replace the majority of anti-inflammatory

drugs & bypass operations.

Serrapeptase is a natural anti-inflammatory enzyme that according

to research can clean, clear & reduce inflammation while safely

dissolving non-living tissue such as blood clots, cysts, arterial

plaque & mucus. One of its major benefits is its ability to reduce

pain & clear clogged arteries.

SERRAPEPTASE SUPPORTS

• Inflammation relief, works on clearing the cause

• Pain relief

• Safely clearing the arteries of arterial plaque

that could lead to a heart attack or stroke

• Improving blood circulation

• Reducing high blood pressure

AMAZING

prIces

years have shown serrapeptase to have

remarkable benefits in a vast range of

health conditions including; blocked

arteries, cardiovascular, arthritis,

asthma, lung conditions, pain, tumors,

autoimmune disease and many more.

In Germany, Dr. Hans Nieper clinically

researched serrapeptase and found it

could clear blocked arteries and prevent

the need for bypass operations. U.K.

pharmacist Dennis Gore talked on BBC

radio about the dramatic results he has

had with serrapeptase. One case was a

man in his 60’s who had been a heavy

smoker, was wheeled into his pharmacy.

He was breathless due to emphysema

and COPD and could hardly talk. He

was on antibiotics, oxygen and getting

bad infections. Dennis prescribed him

serrapeptase and three weeks later the

man walked into his pharmacy, with no

wheelchair and no breathlessness and said

to Dennis he was no longer on antibiotics,

nor oxygen cylinders and was feeling

great.

Serrapeptase has been shown to be

very safe supplement and according

to researchers can be used with most

medications. However let your doctor

know as medications may need reducing

or stopping as the need for them reduces.

Golden Healthcare Group has developed

a strong reputation in Christchurch since

1985 for providing high-quality support to

its residents in aged care, and especially in

dementia care.

With seven facilities in the city, the

group has an understanding of the needs

and expectations of people moving into

a retirement setting, with staff who are

committed to making the transition the best

move of a person’s life.

Golden Healthcare general manager David

Sidaway says there is an emphasis on support

that is always present but never overbearing.

Heritage Lifecare owns the seven Golden

Healthcare facilities but has maintained

them as stand-alone operations that are able

to utilise the extensive experience of the

group’s operational team.

“We strive to ensure all our aged-care

residents are living their very best lives,”

David says.

“As a trusted aged-care provider, we have

enjoyed successful growth because of our

ability to nurture and grow environments

that feel like home. We promote inclusion,

interaction and strong community values.

“You can see it in the grounds. Staff and

residents take exceptional pride in the

gardens and outdoor areas, which are used

frequently, as are the many other resources

the facilities have on offer.

“Residents also benefit from clinical

support that has been carefully integrated

into services in order to provide a

continuum of care that meets the changing

BIG CLUB MATCH-UPS THIS WEEKEND

Hornets rebound to stay in title race

• By Chris Barclay

HALSWELL CLEARED the

first hurdle as they target their

first Canterbury Rugby League

premier grade grand final

appearance since 2014, and now

another sizable obstacle looms.

The Hornets bounced back

from a heavy loss to Hornby in

the final round of the regular

season to eliminate the Northern

Bulldogs – last year’s runners-up

– from Pat Smith Trophy contention

with a thrilling 28-22 minor

semi-final win after extra time

last weekend.

Composure down the stretch

was just what head coach Walter

Wilson craved as Halswell held

firm after Nick Evans broke a 22-

all deadlock through a try with

the final play in the first period

of extra time.

“We knew we had it in us to go

again, you could tell they were in

the moment,” Wilson said.

The boys were pretty positive

throughout the whole week

training and when it came down

to another five minutes we just

had a bit of quiet confidence,”

Wilson said.

Confidence levels might

have been compromised after

Halswell copped a 64-12 hammering

by Hornby to complete

the regular season, though a

scan of the respective team lists

indicates the psychological scarring

was minimal due to a severe

injury toll.

Halswell were missing several

first choice players because of

knocks and age group representative

commitments, the bulk

of that personnel were back to

face the Bulldogs.

Wilson hasn’t dwelt on the last

match with Hornby, believing a

24-all stalemate in April was a

more reliable form line heading

into the preliminary final at

Leslie Park.

The way we played on Saturday

(against the Bulldogs) we

weren’t scarred by the experience.

We had seven out the last

time we played Hornby,” he said.

Top qualifiers Hornby needed

a lifeline after they were edged

14-10 by champions Linwood,

who seek a fifth successive title in

next Sunday.

There will be a new set of

finalists in the 1st XV championship

competition with 2020

champions St Andrew’s College

and traditional powerhouse

Christchurch Boys’ High School

destined to miss next weekend’s

semi-finals.

St Bede’s College head into the

final round of the regular season

against St Thomas of Canterbury

College with a five-point buffer

over closest challenger Nelson

College.

St Thomas appear not quite

secure in third while Timaru

Boys’ High School should secure

a finals berth when they travel

to lowly mid-Canterbury Combined

in Ashburton.

Fifth-placed Christ’s College

can still force their way into the

post-season, though a 31-30 loss

to St Thomas last weekend could

yet sabotage those plans.

St Thomas hit the front with a

Trophy for the leading team at

the end of the regular season

after a 3-1 victory ensured they

could not be caught with a round

of fixtures remaining before the

play-offs.

Harewood’s men pipped

HSOB/Burnside 4-3 to hold a

one-point lead over champions

Marist as they vie for the President’s

Shield.

Lincoln University showcased

their championship-winning

qualities in Christchurch Netball’s

premier grade when the

title holders remained unbeaten

through a 54-47 victory over

second-placed University of Canterbury

on Tuesday night.

They are now the only

unbeaten team in section A

after four rounds; St Nicholas

and Kereru B set the pace in

the competition’s second tier

New identity looms for Kia Carnival

IN THE YEARS I’ve been writing

about automobiles, only on

very rare occasions has a badge

changed. Most car makers are

very keen to keep their brand

identity intact and protect their

image even if the design is many

years old.

It came as some surprise then

that Kia is in the process of

changing its logo, the new design

is more stylised and abstract

than before and is certainly a

departure from the original

and it is now a genuine point of

difference.

So, take a good look, is this

Carnival the last Kia I drive with

the old badge? I don’t know,

but what I do know is that even

though it is about to get a new

point of identity, it still shares

the concept that it has made it a

people mover of choice for many

families and service providers.

The Carnival multi-purpose

vehicle has been around for

many years, it has been a popular

seven or eight-seater and the new

model hasn’t lost sight of that

original concept, it is versatile and

practical, yet it also has dynamics

which often disguise its bulk and

concept.

The Carnival arrives here

with a 2.2-litre four-cylinder

turbocharged R-series diesel

engine that has earned itself a

healthy reputation for power

and economy in other Kia and

Hyundai models. The old V6

petrol engine that has given

faithful service throughout the

Carnival’s life is not available in

New Zealand now, diesel is all

you can get. However, to me that’s

a good thing, the R-series unit is

an absolute cracker, it is strong

and silent.

There are three specification

levels in Carnival – EX, Deluxe

and Premium. The range starts

at $59,990 and ends at $74,990

for the Premium as tested,

in-between the Deluxe sits at

$69,990.

In terms of figures, the twincamshaft,

16-valve diesel has

148kW and 440Nm power output

to consider, it is rated with a

6.5-litre per 100km combined

cycle fuel usage rating and it

accelerates to 100km/h in 8.8sec.

These are impressive figures

considering the Carnival weighs

in bulky at just over two-tonne.

Drive is channelled through an

eight-speed automatic gearbox

through to the front wheels.

Yes, the Carnival is two-wheeldrive

only, and that is one of the

reasons why it can’t be considered

a sport utility vehicle. Therein lies

further appeal, many SUVs don’t

get used to their full potential. If

you do have a need to transport

several occupants frequently,

then the Carnival will do that in

comfort and style, making full

use of its design role.

BOLD: Black wheels on the Premium model give the

Carnival a sporty look.

KIA CARNIVAL PREMIUM: Versatile eight-seater with adaptable seating configurations.

IDENTITY: Out with the old and in with the new - Kia’s

logo going forward (right).

It is also extremely practical,

the seating configurations are

many-fold, the centre row is

adaptable for easy access to the

rear, and the rear seats also fold

down deep into a cargo area for

increased interior load space.

Not only does the Carnival

have on-board versatility, access

is also easy with automatic sliding

doors on each side, and a high-lift

rear tailgate.

At the other end, the R-Series

diesel is a tireless worker, it

develops all of its power low in

the rev range at 3800rpm, and

if you take into account that the

area of peak torque lists from

1750rpm to 2750rpm, you don’t

need to constantly work the

engine, it is happy slugging it out

at low revs.

Power through the

transmission is well harnessed.

Shifts are quick and smooth,

while the ratios are structured

for that healthy acceleration time

and the ability to sip fuel gently

at open road speed – 6l/100km at

100km/h with the engine turning

over slowly at just 1650rpm. The

driver can also choose an active

economical driving mode that

eases the load on the engine for

fuel efficiency gains. Take into

account as well the Carnival’s

72-litre fuel tank, long distances

can be travelled before fill-ups are

necessary.

In Premium specification, the

Carnival is fully loaded with

kit, much of it new-generation

equipment. There’s also a healthy

level of safety kit, both passive

and active.

Features for convenience and

comfort include full leather trim,

satellite navigation, triple-zone

climate control, electric seat

adjustment (also heated and

cooled up front), heated steering

wheel and reversing camera. All

of these features are included

in an ultra-modern interior

that relies heavily on operation

through the central dash touch

screen command centre.

I took the test car on my

normal inland route – State

Highway 72 – the scenic route

through to Glenroy. At both low

and cruising speeds, the Carnival

has quiet motion and a beautiful

ride, the front-strut and multiplelink

rear suspension has soft

spring and damper rates and, as

such, they absorb ruts and bumps

well. That along with the strongly

bolstered seat cushioning means

the ride is more than plush.

• Price – Kia Carnival

Premium, $74,990

• Dimensions – Length,

5155mm; width, 1995mm;

height, 1775mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

2151cc, 148kW,

440Nm, eight-speed

automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

8.8sec

• Fuel usage – 6.5l/100km

There is a little trade-off when

it comes time to tackle our

country’s tight and twisty corners.

The Carnival is large, which

means there is a lot of vehicle to

get around a corner in the first

instance. The body leans over

the suspension thanks to its tall

centre of gravity; however, the

weight transfer is gradual and

doesn’t affect vehicle balance.

There aren’t a lot of vehicles of

this type new in the New Zealand

market, and to be fair, demand is

spasmodic.

However, Kia has stuck with

the Carnival, and for those who

do travel as a group it is the

perfect choice and one that will

gain recognition with a wide

cross-section of the community.

Kia has styled the Carnival so

that it will appeal with its shape,

it has attitude, disguising well

the van-like look that has often

accompanied multi-purpose

vehicles and people movers.

You are in the market for a new

property. You may have visited show

homes and open homes becoming

confused, overwhelmed or swept away

with emotional factors like having

everything new, or extra features such as

three car garaging.

To be happy with your choice, list the

features that you need, considering:

• Family space – Is there room for

the children to play indoors and for

television and entertainment units?

Should this be open plan or separated?

• Kitchen – What needs to be in your

kitchen? Is it a whim or something

that offers a practical solution to the

way you use your kitchen?

• Bedroom sizes – What are optimum

sizes? Smaller bedrooms may translate

to slightly lower building costs while

extra space can be useful.

• Garaging – A standard double garage

once two cars are parked there offers

little space for the toys. What toys

do you have and could they live with

the lawnmower in a garden shed, a

cheaper option to three car garaging?

Home & Property appears every Thursday, delivered FREE

• Size of land – Lifestyle properties

offer space for children, pets, hobbies,

an expansive garden and perhaps a

home-run business but they require

work so are not for everyone and

a compact section might be more

sensible if a tight budget or busy

lifestyle.

• Bathrooms – Second bathrooms are

great in homes with teenagers and a

wet shower room is ideal for young

children. A bath might be fashionable

though is often not used and its

absence could mean a more spacious

bathroom.

• Laundry – Would a laundry in the

garage do the job?

• Storage – How much storage do you

need? Weigh up what can truly be

stored in the garage once vehicles are

in, a preference in winter. Garages

vary in size so check the size to ensure

your vehicles will fit. Look also at

where else the house offers storage

capacity such as in hall cupboards,

a large hot water cylinder cupboard,

wardrobes, walk-in robe, attic storage

trusses, as well as the potential for

hooks and shelving in the garage for

bikes, tools, garden equipment and

even kayaks.

• Off-street parking – How many

vehicles can be parked on the

driveway? Will this space be sufficient?

• Garden - Is there sufficient space

for your children to play or for

entertaining?

A Job With A Difference

Carer Wanted

Hi There !!

I am a Quadriplegic guy living with my

partner in Ilam.

I am looking for people to join a small team

of Carers who assist me with various daily

things l am unable to manage on my own.

Sure, it is a job with pay, but I try to aim

for a rewarding experience as well. If you

have a good sense of humor and keen to

be in a friendly 1 on 1 situation where you

can use practical, common sense skills and

get the buzz of making a real difference to

somebody’s life then it may be for you.

At the moment, l am looking for a morning

person for Saturday and Sunday to do

showering etc. and someone on Monday

or Tuesday to do a Dinner and a Bedtime

(cook a meal and then pop me into bed).

The flexibility to be available at more than

one time can allow for doing more than one

particular area and can be a big advantage.

Think that this may be for you and want

more details then give me a call and we can

arrange to meet and have a chat.
