Burns victim<br />

makes further<br />

progress<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

KEVIN BURNEY of Darfield has<br />

achieved the milestone of moving<br />

out of intensive care as he begins to<br />

recover from his devastating April<br />

2 accident.<br />

Son Marcus said his father, 60,<br />

was moved on Saturday from<br />

Auckland’s Middlemore Hospital’s<br />

intensive care unit to its burns unit.<br />

“It is a small, cautious step,”<br />

Marcus said.<br />

The family felt conflicted about<br />

the move, as it came “with some<br />

risk.”<br />

“We don’t want to move too fast<br />

and get our hopes up, and then<br />

something major happens to dad,”<br />

he said.<br />

However, Kevin was doing well<br />

at this stage, with two major skin<br />

infections under control. He was<br />

also managing to get the mucus<br />

out of his lungs with good oxygen<br />

levels, after the slight collapsing of<br />

a lung caused initial concern.<br />

Cycle lane<br />

plan for<br />

Lincoln<br />

hits snag<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

A $6 MILLION project to install<br />

cycle lanes along both sides of<br />

Lincoln’s main street, along<br />

with a reduced speed zone and<br />

intersection improvements, will<br />

not go ahead this year as planned.<br />

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport<br />

Agency has turned down a<br />

district council application for<br />

funding, meaning the project will<br />

not happen until 2027.<br />

The work is planned for Gerald<br />

St, between Kildare Tce and West<br />

Belt, as part of the Lincoln Town<br />

Centre Plan.<br />

District council asset manager<br />

transportation Andrew Mazey<br />

said the application for funding,<br />

to the roading authority’s national<br />

Streets for People initiative,<br />

was declined.<br />

He said the roading authority<br />

had not given any specific reason,<br />

although it had told district councils<br />

whose applications it declined<br />

that it had evaluated learnings<br />

from a previous project.<br />

Based on these learnings, it<br />

was now “working with a smaller<br />

cohort of councils, to ensure they<br />

are well-supported and set-up for<br />

success.”<br />

Wednesday <strong>May</strong> 4 <strong>2022</strong> <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong><br />

A BIG PROPERTY developer<br />

has waded into the Rolleston<br />

flyover debate, saying it is now<br />

time to look again at light rail<br />

into Christchurch.<br />

The Carter<br />

Group says<br />

the planned<br />

flyover could<br />

link the town’s<br />

residential<br />

areas to a<br />

multi-modal<br />

transport hub.<br />

“If Waka<br />

Kotahi does<br />

not include the potential for<br />

commuter rail in the Rolleston<br />

overbridge design, it will<br />

preclude commuter rail ever<br />

being an option for Rolleston.<br />

This would be short-sighted and<br />

a missed opportunity for people<br />

living in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District,”<br />

director Tim Carter said.<br />

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport<br />

Agency will be releasing new<br />

flyover options for public<br />

consultation in mid-June.<br />

“Any existing rail links or<br />

proposed sites will be taken into<br />

account in planning,” a Waka<br />

Kotahi spokesperson said in<br />

response.<br />

Carter says there is now a<br />

once in a lifetime opportunity<br />

to future-proof for a better<br />

transport solution for Rolleston.<br />

DRAFT The FOR company DISCUSSION has produced a<br />

concept plan.<br />

Carter Group recently had<br />

its application to develop 2100<br />

sections on Dunns Crossing<br />

Rd at Rolleston turned down.<br />

If approved it would have<br />

extended the boundary of the<br />

town to the west. The company<br />

has not yet said whether it plans<br />

to appeal.<br />

Carter said developing a<br />

Rolleston multi-modal transport<br />

hub with integrated park and<br />

ride option, a passenger bus<br />

station and a link to a potential<br />

commuter rail station would<br />

improve connectivity.<br />

NEW ROAD NAMED<br />

A new road through Rollleston<br />

Rolleston Drive will be named<br />

Christensen Pde. Te Taumutu<br />

Rŭnanga suggested Rðhutu and<br />

Patete as names, while Rolleston<br />

Residents Association recommended<br />

Christensen Way.<br />

District councillors considered<br />

in the public-excluded part of<br />

their meeting last week the three<br />

names. The reason for having the<br />

discussion in public-excluded<br />

was to protect the privacy of<br />

names of living persons.<br />

Rolleston Residents Association<br />

committee member Diane<br />

name suggestion had been in<br />

recognition of life member and<br />

The Waka Kotahi funding<br />

would have allowed the project<br />

to begin in the current <strong>2022</strong>/23<br />

financial year. Failure to secure<br />

the funding means it will now<br />

revert to its original timing in the<br />

current Long Term Plan, where it<br />

is scheduled to begin 2027.<br />

“However, the council may<br />

wish to review this in the future,”<br />

Mazey said.<br />

“The current programme is<br />

budgeted to be fully funded by the<br />

district council under the Long<br />

Term Plan and costings would be<br />

confirmed closer to the time,” he<br />

said.<br />

The Lincoln Town Centre Plan,<br />

released in 2016, outlines safety<br />

and intersection improvements,<br />

as well as the installation of cycle<br />

lanes along both sides, replacing<br />

on-street parking.<br />

The on-street parking would<br />

shift to off-street parking precincts<br />

on West Belt and the side<br />

streets of Lyttelton and Maurice<br />

Sts. The angle parking area on the<br />

south side of Gerald St would be<br />

retained.<br />

The plan also includes a<br />

recommendation for the speed<br />

along Gerald St to be reduced to<br />

30km/h.<br />

Meanwhile, roadworks that<br />

started last week on Gerald St,<br />

from West Belt to the Vernon<br />

Drive area, are for pavement<br />

repairs.<br />

Kevin sustained burns to about<br />

70 per cent of his body – from<br />

head to thighs – when a metal<br />

drum exploded as he was using a<br />

grinder to cut circular pieces for<br />

garden plant frames.<br />

The drum had been used to<br />

store the cleaning chemical<br />

isopropyl and it is believed sparks<br />

from the power tool ignited<br />

fumes.<br />

He was initially transported<br />

to Christchurch Hospital and<br />

then airlifted to Middlemore, the<br />

country’s national burns unit.<br />

Medical personnel described<br />

his burns as the worse they had<br />

seen since treating victims of the<br />

Whakaari/White Island volcanic<br />

eruption in 2019.<br />

Last week, Kevin was able to<br />

enjoy a brief respite outdoors for<br />

the first time, wife Amanda by<br />

his side.<br />

“They took him outside so he<br />

could see the sunlight and help<br />

with the mental health a bit.”<br />

Marcus believed it was hard for<br />

his dad to cope with going from<br />

working full-time, and being a<br />

keen sailor and runner, to not<br />

being able to do anything.<br />

“Mental health wise he is still<br />

a bit up in the air, his recovery<br />

will be both a physical recovery<br />

as well as a emotional recovery,”<br />

Kevin Burney<br />

Marcus said.<br />

Amanda has been in Auckland<br />

since shortly after the accident<br />

and recently the Freemasons<br />

Charity organised long-term accommodation<br />

for her.<br />

“They’ve found a nice unit<br />

where she can stay for the next<br />

few months,” Marcus said.<br />

Kevin is about one month into<br />

his recovery and faces at least<br />

another three months in Auckland<br />

before being transferred to<br />

Burwood Hospital’s burns unit<br />

for continuing care and rehabilitation.<br />

TAKING SHAPE: A skate park with pool bowl, flow<br />

bowl and snake run is being constructed as part<br />

of the $2.7 million Rolleston Town Centre Youth<br />

Zone. Construction of the youth zone began in mid-<br />

March and is set to be completed by the end of the<br />

year. As well as the skate park, there will be a half<br />

basketball court and netball zone, alongside a gaga<br />

ball pit. Gaga ball is similar to dodge ball and played<br />

in a pit area, where players throw the ball with the<br />

aim to touch other players’ legs. There will also be<br />

an eagle claw basket swing and outdoor furniture.<br />

The youth zone is a district council project and was<br />

designed with input from students at <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s four<br />

high schools.<br />

was for the previous year, to<br />

the district council<br />

has been working to<br />

use, including putting<br />

more emphasis on<br />

volumetric charges.<br />

“Over the years since<br />

Washington said.<br />

The report generally showed<br />

the district had the cheapest<br />

volumetric water charge in the<br />

country, for the second year in a<br />

row, and among the lowest overall<br />

charges for 200m3 of water.<br />

It also showed <strong>Selwyn</strong> still has<br />

the newest water and wastewater<br />

pipes, with the average age of<br />

water and wastewater pipes in<br />

the district well under 20 years.<br />

While leakages had increased<br />

in the past year, <strong>Selwyn</strong> still had<br />

among the lowest leaks of any<br />

network in the country<br />

Washington said the<br />

district council continued<br />

to invest above the national<br />

average per property in capital<br />

expenditure for drinking and<br />

wastewater, with its new network<br />

contributing to comparatively<br />

low operational expenditure<br />

being required to maintain the<br />

network.<br />

“As the fastest growing district<br />

in the country, we’ve also<br />

got the fastest growing water<br />

infrastructure, which puts a<br />

lot of pressure on our staff who<br />

are passionate about doing a<br />

good job for this community,”<br />

Washington said.<br />

“It’s good to see their hard<br />

work reflected, showing that<br />

while we have work to do, overall<br />

we’re delivering a really good<br />

service for <strong>Selwyn</strong>.”<br />

AN ATTENDANCE of 300<br />

Service on April 25 pleased<br />

the organisers, who said the<br />

high number in a difficult time<br />

of public health sensitivity<br />

confirmed local appreciation<br />

for this national day of<br />

remembrance.<br />

“At the start of the year having<br />

a public Anzac ceremony seemed<br />

BOOST CANTERBURY<br />

Getting boosted is the best way to fight Omicron<br />

Local vaccination events:<br />

Do I really need a booster?<br />

Getting your booster makes<br />

it less likely you’ll get really<br />

sick with COVID-19, or pass it on.<br />

It is the best thing you can do to<br />

protect you and your whānau.<br />

I’m vaccinated. Why do I<br />

need a booster too?<br />

After a while, your protection<br />

against the COVID-19 virus<br />

starts to drop away. The<br />

booster dose gives you<br />

added protection against<br />

Omicron.<br />

When do I need to<br />

have my booster?<br />

If you are 18 or<br />

over and had your<br />

second dose at least<br />

3 months ago, it’s<br />

time to get your free<br />

booster vaccine.<br />

How old do I need to be?<br />

16 and 17 year olds are<br />

now eligible for boosters too.<br />

For you, it needs to be at<br />

Do I need to get<br />

Yup, because you<br />

can get COVID-19<br />

‘I am not right in the head and they<br />

In 2017, Liam Booth<br />

fell through cracks<br />

in the mental health<br />

system, and died of<br />

suspected suicide. Five<br />

years later, a coroner is<br />

investigating whether<br />

there are ways to stop<br />

this ever happening<br />

again. Susan Sandys<br />

was at the inquest<br />

“IS THAT a photo of Liam?”<br />

coroner Bruce Hesketh asked<br />

Geoff Booth as he took his seat at<br />

the witness stand.<br />

It was the first day of the<br />

inquest into Liam’s death, held<br />

at Christchurch District Court<br />

building, over two days last week.<br />

“That is a photo of Liam,” said<br />

Booth, from Greendale, of the<br />

framed black-and-white picture<br />

he had carried to the stand and<br />

placed next to him.<br />

“Would you mind if I could see<br />

that? I have never seen what Liam<br />

looks like,” Hesketh said.<br />

Booth held out the picture, and<br />

it was passed to the coroner before<br />

being handed back to Booth.<br />

It was a touching moment in<br />

the two long days of evidence given<br />

by witnesses, who were mostly<br />

professionals involved in Liam’s<br />

mental health care, as well as his<br />

parents and police officers.<br />

Liam was 21 when he was<br />

found dead in a park near his<br />

Beckenham flat on October 2,<br />

2017. Booth has been fighting<br />

for answers ever since, riled by<br />

the failure of health services to<br />

save someone who was clearly<br />

suicidal.<br />

“I want to look them in the eye,<br />

so they can see the end result of<br />

not doing their job correctly,”<br />

Booth told the <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> last<br />

year when talking about his battle<br />

to make sure an inquest would<br />

be held.<br />

Finally, last week, his day in<br />

court had come. Sitting with the<br />

photo of Liam beside him, he<br />

put on a brave face to relay what<br />

happened leading up to his son’s<br />

death.<br />

Just 18 days prior, on the<br />

evening of September 14, Liam<br />

phoned, crying and upset, saying<br />

he was considering taking his<br />

own life.<br />

Booth said if he had not managed<br />

to find out where Liam was<br />

in that conversation, his son<br />

might have died that night.<br />

“I spoke to him for quite a bit<br />

of time. I just said in passing<br />

‘Where are you?’ and he said<br />

‘Halswell Quarry’ and then he<br />

hung up.”<br />

Booth phoned 111.<br />

Police were called to the scene<br />

about 8.30pm and found Liam<br />

about 20 minutes later, sitting<br />

in his car. They took him to<br />

the emergency department at<br />

INQUEST: Coroner Bruce Hesketh asked Booth if he could<br />

see the photo of Liam, as he had never seen what Liam<br />

looked like.<br />

EVIDENCE: Geoff Booth sits in the witness box at the coroners court with a framed photo<br />

of his deceased son Liam beside him.<br />

PHOTOS: STAR MEDIA<br />

Christchurch Hospital.<br />

Booth said he was phoned by<br />

one of the constables to say Liam<br />

had arrived safely at the hospital,<br />

about 9.30pm. He asked if he<br />

should come in; the constable<br />

said no, that the hospital would<br />

do an assessment and phone him.<br />

About 10.30pm, a psychiatric<br />

registrar phoned him and said<br />

they were not going to keep<br />

Liam in hospital and outlined<br />

the reasons for this. His suicide<br />

risk had been assessed as low<br />

to moderate. Booth told the<br />

registrar there was no guarantee<br />

Liam would be safe and he<br />

wanted him to be admitted for<br />

compulsory care.<br />

“I said ‘I think he still has<br />

suicidal thoughts’, and he only<br />

had to get it right once.”<br />

He told the registrar to give<br />

him an hour to get there to pick<br />

him up. But then the registrar<br />

said Booth had misunderstood<br />

him, and they had already let<br />

Liam go, paying for a taxi to take<br />

him back to his flat.<br />

“I was absolutely furious.”<br />

Booth tried to phone Liam but<br />

he was not answering his calls.<br />

He got in his car and drove to<br />

Christchurch, then around the<br />

city looking for him.<br />

“I couldn’t find him for the<br />

entire night.”<br />

“I want to look them in<br />

the eye, so they can see<br />

the end result of not doing<br />

their job correctly”<br />

– Geoff Booth<br />

Booth said during the year<br />

prior to this night, he had<br />

continually been in contact with<br />

health services about Liam’s<br />

well-being and state of mind. He<br />

would attend GP appointments<br />

with his son, and talk to the<br />

Canterbury District Health<br />

Board’s mental health services’<br />

crisis management team.<br />

“It was almost like watching<br />

a train wreck. There was more<br />

and more involvement from me<br />

and he needed more and more<br />

support leading up to his death,”<br />

Booth said.<br />

“You don’t know what you<br />

don’t know. Now I know a lot, but<br />

it doesn’t help Liam. There were<br />

breadcrumbs all the way through<br />

this. If someone was able to have<br />

a look holistically over the whole<br />

file of Liam, there were signs, and<br />

the signs just weren’t reacted on,”<br />

Booth said.<br />

In 2017, he had not known the<br />

processes involved in compulsory<br />

treatment of patients, and was<br />

not even aware that the Mental<br />

Health (Compulsory Assessment<br />

and Treatment) Act 1992 existed.<br />

He also had not known there was<br />

a family support liaison person<br />

in the CDHB. If he had of known<br />

about the availability of that<br />

person, they could have helped<br />

him navigate the mental health<br />

system.<br />

“It would have been nice if they<br />

had contacted me before Liam had<br />

died. They contacted me after, six<br />

months after,” Booth said.<br />

“I was his support person, but<br />

I didn’t know what support was<br />

available.”<br />

have let me go’ son tells worried dad<br />

Booth said he saw in Liam’s<br />

medical notes after his death<br />

about incidents of suicidal ideation<br />

previously, but none of these<br />

had been disclosed to him when<br />

Liam was alive. He also had not<br />

known about Liam’s use of drugs.<br />

In retrospect he could see that<br />

by the night of September 14,<br />

Liam had not been able to make<br />

rational decisions for himself, yet<br />

he was sent home “unsupported”<br />

within one-and-a-half hours of<br />

arriving at the hospital.<br />

Booth did manage to find his<br />

son on September 15, and went<br />

with him to a GP appointment.<br />

He said the last time he saw<br />

Liam was October 1, the day<br />

before he was found dead.<br />

Liam had driven to Sumner<br />

and phoned to ask Booth to come<br />

and see him. They chatted in<br />

his car for about 20 minutes.<br />

Liam told him he had been<br />

discharged from the care of the<br />

health board’s crisis management<br />

team as an outpatient. Liam had<br />

become an outpatient of the team<br />

following his emergency department<br />

assessment on September<br />

14.<br />

“He said to me: ‘I am not right,<br />

I am not right in the head. And<br />

they have let me go’,” Booth said.<br />

He said Liam was aware he had<br />

drug and alcohol counselling<br />

coming up, and was planning<br />

to buy ham on the way home to<br />

make a sandwich for work the<br />

next day.<br />

“That gave me some confidence<br />

he was still functioning.”<br />

He checked in with Liam later<br />

in the day, phoning just after<br />

5pm, and everything was okay.<br />

“And that was the last time I<br />

spoke to him.”<br />

He said while there had been<br />

no warning signs on that day,<br />

something must have “materially<br />

changed” later that night to flick<br />

him back to suicidal thoughts.<br />

Liam’s mother Debbie Bree<br />

gave tearful evidence via video<br />

link from her home in Dunedin.<br />

Liam was her second son, born<br />

in 1996. He lived with her until<br />

moving to Canterbury to live<br />

with Booth when he was 11. His<br />

childhood behaviour, including<br />

a threat of suicide, had prompted<br />

HAPPIER TIMES: Liam Booth (above) celebrated his 21st with friends and dad Geoff at a beer festival in Christchurch.<br />

her to seek the help of medical<br />

professionals. He was diagnosed<br />

with adjustment disorder and oppositional<br />

defiance disorder.<br />

She described her son as “a<br />

beautiful soul”. While he could<br />

be difficult, he was always “apologetic<br />

and sweet” after arguments<br />

and knew he had done wrong.<br />

She also spoke to him by phone<br />

on October 1.<br />

While he was calm and seemed<br />

fine, she thought he was having<br />

issues with his girlfriend and<br />

wanted the relationship to be<br />

better.<br />

“I said ‘Give her some time,<br />

don’t ring her all the time’. I<br />

wanted him to see beyond the<br />

next hour, give her a day, then<br />

take her out for a coffee. He can’t<br />

see beyond the next 10 minutes.”<br />

She was trying to assure him life<br />

would be good again.<br />

In hindsight, she thought if he<br />

had not taken his life that night,<br />

he may have done it another<br />

time.<br />

“He was a sensitive young man,<br />

he didn’t have control of his emotions,”<br />

Bree said.<br />

“I feel so awful that he had<br />

such a hard time throughout his<br />

life. Our loss is so devastating, it<br />

never goes away.”<br />

In 2018, the Canterbury<br />

District Health Board formally<br />

apologised to Booth, for the fact<br />

Liam died while under its care.<br />

The health board also undertook<br />

a serious event review, which<br />

suggested family members<br />

should have been involved in a<br />

discharge plan, and they would<br />

have benefited from more information<br />

about support. Booth has<br />

also lodged a complaint with the<br />

Health and Disability Commissioner.<br />

The purpose of the inquest<br />

is to establish the facts of what<br />

happened in the death. As part<br />

of that, the coroner is addressing<br />

whether the level of care Liam<br />

received from the health board<br />

was appropriate, and whether<br />

there should have been a formal<br />

assessment of him under the<br />

Mental Health Act. He may make<br />

recommendations in his findings<br />

to help prevent similar deaths in<br />

the future.<br />

On day two of the inquest<br />

Hesketh had probing questions<br />

for Booth and the health board’s<br />

medical personnel who dealt<br />

with Liam.<br />

Booth told the coroner he<br />

struggled with the fact that when<br />

the crisis team would phone<br />

Liam, it was from a blocked caller<br />

ID. This would mean he didn’t<br />

know who he had missed a call<br />

from. The team would then make<br />

a record of him not engaging<br />

with services.<br />

“As far as I understand, that is<br />

still the process now, five years<br />

later. There will be a lot of kids<br />

who don’t have credit on their<br />

phone, they don’t know who they<br />

missed a call from.”<br />

A youth drug and alcohol<br />

counsellor from Christchurch<br />

City Mission, Brian Johnson, who<br />

saw Liam, told the coroner that in<br />

the case of people not attending<br />

a session, he would text to tell<br />

them he wanted to reschedule the<br />

appointment.<br />

The coroner asked if social media<br />

apps could also be a good way<br />

of communicating with young<br />

people, as these were free and did<br />

not rely on having phone credit.<br />

Johnson said that was a good<br />

point and the service could look<br />

at setting up a profile with a provider<br />

such as WhatsApp.<br />

Johnson said he had a good<br />

rapport with Liam.<br />

“He was a nice guy, the sort<br />

that you remember.”<br />

The health board’s psychiatric<br />

registrar who assessed Liam as<br />

having a low-to-moderate suicide<br />

risk on the night of September<br />

14 at Christchurch Hospital gave<br />

evidence via video link. His<br />

name is suppressed at least until<br />

the coroner releases his findings.<br />

The registrar, who was meeting<br />

Liam for the first time, said the<br />

risk assessment was based on a<br />

number of factors. These included<br />

that Liam had himself called<br />

for help, and, at the hospital, he<br />

was voicing a change in how he<br />

was feeling while acknowledging<br />

the suicidal thoughts he had<br />

earlier.<br />

The registrar also gave his reasoning<br />

for not sectioning Liam<br />

for compulsory care under the<br />

Mental Health Act.<br />

“I was concerned that would<br />

increase his sense of helplessness<br />

and having a lack of control over<br />

the situation, when he had ultimately<br />

sought help that night,”<br />

the registrar said.<br />

He was also concerned the<br />

mental health hospital environment<br />

that Liam would be<br />

sectioned into would be “uncomfortable.”<br />

There were other consumers<br />

on the ward, including<br />

many suffering psychosis, and it<br />

could feel unsafe at times.<br />

The coroner said it appeared<br />

incidents in the past where Liam<br />

had suicidal ideation were not<br />

on the suicide risk information<br />

sheet before the registrar on<br />

that night, and there had not<br />

been time for the registrar to go<br />

through all the progress notes.<br />

Hesketh also noted the registrar<br />

did not have access to Liam’s<br />

GP practice’s medical notes.<br />

He asked the registrar about<br />

the possibility of an “easy go-to<br />

document” that would give a<br />

clearer picture of worsening<br />

symptoms over time.<br />

“If there’s better ways to<br />

summarise that information to<br />

really show key points, it might<br />

be something that’s useful,” the<br />

registrar said.<br />

supervisor that the registrar had<br />

consulted with, by phone, on the<br />

night also gave evidence. Her<br />

name is also suppressed. The<br />

supervisor, who had never met<br />

Liam, said she and the registrar<br />

felt there would have been a<br />

high likelihood Liam would be<br />

discharged from hospital the<br />

next day if he was committed<br />

for compulsory care. Therefore,<br />

they would not achieve anything<br />

meaningful for him and he<br />

would be put off seeking further<br />

help.<br />

“Alternatively it might have<br />

meant he got the shake up<br />

he needed, to essentially not<br />

behave the way he had, because<br />

you would have put him into<br />

hospital,” the coroner suggested.<br />

The supervisor said Liam was<br />

discharged as an outpatient<br />

from the crisis resolution<br />

team’s care on September 29.<br />

She acknowledged Liam had a<br />

good relationship with a team<br />

social worker, but she believed<br />

the social worker would have<br />

told Liam that if he was not<br />

going well he could contact<br />

them again. The team members<br />

believed counselling through the<br />

alcohol and drug service worked<br />

well in engaging young people<br />

and this was the most effective<br />

path for Liam at that time.<br />

CDHB chief of psychiatry<br />

Sigurd Schmidt gave evidence.<br />

He said there had been some<br />

health system changes since<br />

2017.<br />

These included texts being<br />

used more to communicate<br />

with patients, and auditing<br />

across CDHB services on how<br />

much families were part of<br />

discharge plans. However, family<br />

involvement when treating adult<br />

patients could be difficult due to<br />

privacy considerations.<br />

In response to concerns about<br />

the registrar not being able to<br />

see notes from Liam’s GP to help<br />

guide him in his assessment,<br />

Schmidt said it had been<br />

acknowledged there could be<br />

one digital record which would<br />

follow through from primary<br />

to secondary care. There was<br />

already a digital platform, called<br />

HealthOne, which allowed<br />

access to information such as<br />

pharmaceutical records, but it<br />

did not allow access to GP notes.<br />

Creating such a digital record<br />

would be very costly, and privacy<br />

issues would have to be worked<br />

through.<br />

“I think, with the new<br />

health reforms, there’s a hope<br />

there would be a single digital<br />

platform,” Schmidt said.<br />

He said an existing digital<br />

platform for clinicians had a<br />

“traffic light system” that could<br />

be updated with the latest<br />

information on at-risk patients.<br />

“A more fluid way would be<br />

helpful, where maybe the latest<br />

ones (incidents) are highlighted,<br />

but our current digital system is<br />

quite old,” Schmidt said.<br />

The coroner wanted to know<br />

more about HealthOne and<br />

the traffic light system. He<br />

gave the CDHB’s counsel and<br />

police inquest officers the task<br />

of “homework” to find this<br />

information out for him. This<br />

was to help him in his findings,<br />

CLOSED: The former tourist centre in Arthur’s Pass.<br />

Fashion Quarterly <strong>May</strong> <strong>2022</strong><br />

Bid to save visitor<br />

centre ramps up<br />

• By John Cosgrove<br />

THE FIGHT continues<br />

over the old visitor centre at<br />

Arthur’s Pass.<br />

Arthur’s Pass residents<br />

are waiting for the Department<br />

of Conservation to<br />

make up their mind about<br />

the alpine village’s historic<br />

centre which closed two<br />

years ago.<br />

Retired former Arthur’s<br />

Pass senior ranger,<br />

Chris Stewart, said DOC<br />

told them that they have<br />

produced some options on<br />

what they could do with it.<br />

“But what we would really<br />

like to see, is it restored<br />

and used again as a visitor<br />

center, community centre<br />

and museum that is what<br />

it was originally built as,”<br />

Stewart said.<br />

But he admitted that<br />

could be a $2-$3 million<br />

exercise.<br />

The well-known national<br />

park centre, originally<br />

opened as a museum in<br />

1959 and it is in the South<br />

Island’s first national park.<br />

The Arthur’s Pass National<br />

Park was established<br />

by the Public Reserves, Domains,<br />

and National Parks<br />

Act of 1928.<br />

Stewart said that shortly<br />

after the museum was<br />

opened, the old Lands and<br />

Survey Department took it<br />

over as a combined visitor<br />

centre and museum.<br />

“It’s been run in conjunction<br />

with the community<br />

ever since, and we’re pretty<br />

keen to see that brought<br />

back,” he said.<br />

When closed two years<br />

ago, the DOC visitor information<br />

services simply<br />

moved across the road into<br />

a temporary centre.<br />

Stewart said the closure<br />

was forced when the government<br />

decided all public<br />

departments had to be up<br />

to 100 per cent National<br />

Building Standard.<br />

“For the building, it was<br />

the final nail in the coffin,<br />

due to it being perceived as<br />

an earthquake risk.<br />

“We had to pull out of<br />

there even though the<br />

OPTIONS: Retired former Arthur’s Pass DOC<br />

PHOTOS: JOHN COSGROVE<br />

building’s been through a<br />

few big earthquakes and<br />

survived, but these are the<br />

standards that DOC had to<br />

meet and we had to go,” he<br />

said.<br />

But this only galvanised<br />

the 30 permanent residents<br />

and 100-plus holiday<br />

homeowners in the district,<br />

to do something to make<br />

it the centre of their small<br />

community again.<br />

“We realised that there<br />

are still a lot of visitors<br />

coming here who would<br />

love the type of hands-on<br />

displays we could create<br />

here.<br />

“We want to see it as a<br />

conservation hub, where<br />

people come to learn about<br />

conservation, get hands-on<br />

experiences,” he said.<br />

Stewart said they want to<br />

bring back historic material<br />

currently on loan to other<br />

museums in the region<br />

and have that available for<br />

people to see and use for<br />

research.<br />

But the money to<br />

renovate the building has<br />

to come from somewhere,<br />

and Stewart said locals<br />

were hopeful DOC will<br />

help them out but they are<br />

prepared to consider other<br />

options of funding.<br />

“The figures DOC were<br />

coming up with two or<br />

three years ago were in the<br />

order of $2-$3 million to<br />

renovate it and get it back<br />

up to that 100 per cent National<br />

Building Standard.<br />

“We would like to look<br />

at that and see whether<br />

there are other ways of being<br />

able to bring it back on<br />

stream without having to<br />

spend that sort of money,”<br />

he said.<br />

DOC acting heritage and<br />

visitor director Tim Bamford<br />

said they remain committed<br />

to providing a visitor<br />

centre in Arthur’s Pass.<br />

“Work to consider<br />

long-term options for<br />

the Arthur’s Pass Visitor<br />

Centre are ongoing. A<br />

range of options are being<br />

considered but no decisions<br />

have been made,” Bamford<br />

said.<br />

Pub goes to the cows for the day<br />

THE TAI Tapu Hotel was<br />

the scene on Friday for one<br />

of the district’s biggest cattle<br />

sales.<br />

The Tahora Party in the Pub<br />

was a novel way for well-known<br />

holstein friesian stud breeders,<br />

the Geddes family, to reach out<br />

to buyers.<br />

Seventy purebred cows, calves<br />

and yearlings were on offer,<br />

with some fetching more than<br />

$28,000.<br />

To make the show more upmarket,<br />

the livestock were all<br />

primped and preened prior to<br />

the event.<br />

They were then paraded<br />

before more than 300 local and<br />

national buyers and farmers,<br />

relaxing under the sun in the<br />

hotel’s garden bar.<br />

Many more tuned in to the<br />

spectacle via an online video<br />

link to watch and bid on the<br />

animals.<br />

The Geddes family brought<br />

over Australian specialist<br />

auctioneer Brian Leslie to ensure<br />

the hotel cattle sale kept mooving<br />

along.<br />

A three-year-old cow topped<br />

the sale fetching $30,000, which<br />

was hosted by Dean and Jo<br />

Geddes.<br />

The average sale was just over<br />

$9400.<br />

the awards.<br />

“We’ve invested heavily<br />

in our people, our new<br />

machinery and the latest<br />

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in<br />

entomology (insects and other invertebrates). Each<br />

week he introduces a new species found in his<br />

backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public<br />

Silvery markings make<br />

common moth easy to sight<br />

ON APRIL Fool’s Day I<br />

encountered an unusual<br />

looking moth with what<br />

looked like a brush on its<br />

thorax.<br />

It turns out that this was<br />

the green garden looper<br />

(Chrysodeixis eriosoma), a<br />

relatively common moth<br />

in New Zealand.<br />

The green garden looper<br />

has a near cosmopolitan<br />

distribution, including<br />

Russia, North America,<br />

Japan, China, India,<br />

Sri Lanka, the Malay<br />

Peninsula and Australasia.<br />

The species is sometimes<br />

known as the Silver Y<br />

moth due to its silvery<br />

forewing markings.<br />

Chrysodeixis eriosoma<br />

adults have a wingspan<br />

of 30-40mm. They occur<br />

throughout the year, but<br />

are mostly observed from<br />

February to April.<br />

The moths can lay up<br />

to 2000 eggs in total and,<br />

depending on the local<br />

temperatures, can have five<br />

to seven generations per<br />

year.<br />

Larvae can reach 40mm<br />

long, are green with<br />

several faint longitudinal<br />

white lines, and often black<br />

dots along their bodies.<br />

Larvae are highly polyphagous,<br />

known to forage<br />

on more than 60 plant<br />

species in the Solanaceae,<br />

Leguminosae, Cruciferae<br />

and Malvaceae families.<br />

Larvae are often found on<br />

common vegetables such<br />

as beans, potatoes and<br />

tomatoes.<br />

Pupation occurs in<br />

sheltered places on the<br />

underside of leaves for a<br />

few days in summer to<br />

about a month in winter.

Term 1 Update<br />

Principal’s Message<br />

Term One has been another successful one for the<br />

College in spite of the challenging times we find<br />

ourselves in. It was fantastic to be able to acknowledge<br />

and celebrate with those learners who gained Merit<br />

and Excellence Endorsements NCEA in 2021. Other<br />

Term 1 highlights included the school production of<br />

Beauty and the Beast, The Annual Memorial Brad Milne<br />

Basketball match vs St Thomas of Canterbury College<br />

and our Character Strengths week.<br />

Another important feature of our Term 1 calendar was<br />

spending time connecting with each of our feeder<br />

primary schools to gather their thoughts and insight<br />

on our new Senior Campus due to open in 2025. It was<br />

exciting to hear what these key stakeholders saw as the<br />

biggest opportunities and challenges will be moving<br />

forward in our continued delivery of high quality<br />

education to serve our rapidly growing community. We<br />

will advertise opportunities for wider public feedback<br />

during terms two and three.<br />

This term we look<br />

forward to our winter<br />

sporting codes<br />

beginning and to again<br />

joining with our Kahui<br />

Ako schools to celebrate<br />

Matariki. Term 2 certainly<br />

promises to be no less exciting!<br />

Rachel Skelton, Principal<br />

Student Leadership Update:<br />

The student leaders have been enjoying a very<br />

busy term. Some highlights include:<br />

Our Students Leaders have been in full swing for Term<br />

1. Our Year 10 - 12 Whānau Ambassadors completed<br />

their training at their overnight camp. They returned<br />

to school ready to lead their Whānau in the hotly<br />

contested Whānau Competition. Highlights of this<br />

competition so far are:<br />

• Pepeha Competition<br />

• Whānau Belonging Wall Competition<br />

• Summerfest<br />

• R2L Term 1 Clicks<br />

Our Year 13 Student Leaders have also been making<br />

a difference and creating a belonging for all learners<br />

within our school. They are regularly out on duty at<br />

break times connecting with learners. A highlight<br />

of the term was their leadership during Character<br />

Strengths Week.<br />

Why Do Character Strengths Matter?<br />

Character strengths are the positive parts of your<br />

personality that make you feel authentic and engaged.<br />

You possess all 24 character strengths in different<br />

degrees, giving you a unique character strengths<br />

profile. Research shows that understanding and<br />

applying your strengths can help:<br />

• Boost Confidence<br />

• Increase Happiness<br />

• Strengthen Relationships<br />

• Manage Problems<br />

• Reduce Stress<br />

• Accomplish Goals<br />

• Build Meaning and Purpose<br />

• Improve Work Performance<br />

During Character Strengths Week we celebrated<br />

the following:<br />

• TEAMWORK: Staff vs Year 13 Dodgeball Game<br />

• ALL STRENGTHS: Dress up as one of your signature<br />

strengths<br />

• KINDNESS: Staff and Learners Shave for a Cure<br />

• LOVE OF LEARNING: Endorsement Awards<br />

C.A.S.E Update<br />

Culture, Arts, Sport and Education Outside of the Classroom is C.A.S.E at Rolleston College Horoeka Haemata. In<br />

Term 1 we continued to celebrate outstanding achievements from our learners. Some recent highlights include:<br />

Sport:<br />

Unfortunately Covid-19 caused a lot of sporting<br />

competitions and events in term 1 to be cancelled or<br />

modified. Some highlights were seeing the numbers<br />

of learners who got involved in Mountain Biking and<br />

Surfing. We also had some strong performances from<br />

our Touch, Cricket and Volleyball teams. Looking<br />

ahead to term 2 we are incredibly excited about the<br />

growth we have seen in the number of learners who<br />

have signed up to play various winter sports codes for<br />

school. We look forward to seeing the following codes<br />

in action over the winter both at home at Rolleston<br />

and around the greater Christchurch area - Basketball,<br />

Badminton, Table Tennis, Rugby, Football, Hockey and<br />

Netball.<br />

One of the term’s sporting highlights was the second<br />

annual Brad Milne memorial Basketball match against<br />

St Thomas’ College of Canterbury.<br />

Arts: Production<br />

The performing arts team presented ‘Disneys’<br />

Beauty and the Beast Junior’ to full houses over three<br />

nights in our outside plaza at the end of term one.<br />

This was the first musical production since 2018,<br />

and the creative team were Merrin Diack (Director),<br />

Jasmine Robb (Musical Director) and Sam Gimblett<br />

(Choreographer), who worked hard to produce a high<br />

quality performance in challenging conditions with our<br />

first ever outside musical production. It was wonderful<br />

to see the use of an outside space for a performance<br />

and the relaxed family atmosphere just as the sunset.<br />

G&T catering were onsite with a food truck and the<br />

Cultural:<br />

Our Polyfest group was due to perform at the<br />

Canterbury Polyfest in term 1 but due to Covid it has<br />

been postponed. The group is busy working hard<br />

practising 3 to 4 times a week under the guidance of<br />

Tama Mai Saute Dance Academy. Our Polyfest group<br />

will be planning a Fiafia Night to perform and celebrate<br />

younger members of the audience enjoyed dressing<br />

the part and meeting their favourite characters after<br />

the show. Jasmine Rowland was an impressive Belle<br />

and the rest of the cast alternated roles each night to<br />

allow for adaptability during this challenging period.<br />

Where many other schools were choosing to stop<br />

their productions for the year Rolleston College chose<br />

to keep moving forward to allow learners who excel<br />

in the performing arts to have their time to shine.<br />

Congratulations to all the cast and crew, watch this<br />

space for ‘Blood Brothers - the Musical’ later this year.<br />

all their hard work with family in term 2.<br />

Kapa Haka continues to grow stronger and stronger.<br />

In term 2 there is a planned Whānau hui where the<br />

kapa haka will perform. Our Kapa Haka group will also<br />

perform at the Matariki local school’s celebration event<br />

on the 22nd of June at the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports Centre.<br />

Ready to Flourish:<br />

Volunteering<br />

This year Rolleston College has a key<br />

focus on ‘Building Communities’ through<br />

volunteering.<br />

We have been working alongside Lizzie Daly from<br />

Volunteering Canterbury to provide opportunities<br />

for learners, particularly supported learners. Our<br />

key project in Term 1 was to support the work<br />

of NICU Cuddle Hearts, a <strong>Selwyn</strong>-based project<br />

founded by Lisa Paget to support vulnerable<br />

babies in NICU.<br />

The learners learnt how to cut, sew, and finish<br />

the cuddle hearts. Volunteering is a fantastic way<br />

for our learners to give back to the community.<br />

They can log their volunteer hours on the Student<br />

Volunteer App and once a certain number of<br />

hours are completed they are rewarded with<br />

a volunteer pin. To help support this group of<br />

learners and NICU Cuddle Hearts, we would<br />

gratefully receive any donations of 100% cotton<br />

fabric.<br />

We are also keen to hear of any other local<br />

community projects that we could support.<br />

KiVa Launch in Term 2<br />

KiVa is a research-based tool<br />

to prevent and reduce bullying<br />

problems. KiVa has been proven<br />

to make a difference and focuses<br />

on teaching our tamariki respect<br />

and acceptance of all students,<br />

their culture and identity. KiVa is<br />

being used around the world in<br />

over 18 different countries<br />

The KiVa programme consists of<br />

lessons and activities conducted<br />

through our Ako programme at Rolleston College, starting<br />

next term.<br />

The lessons incorporate discussions about bullying and<br />

respecting others. KiVa is a whole school approach and<br />

has three main aspects: prevention, intervention and<br />

monitoring. The goal of the work done at the classroom<br />

level is to educate students about their role in stopping<br />

bullying. Putting an end to bullying becomes possible when<br />

a shared sense of responsibility is developed and group<br />

norms are changed. In New Zealand, over 60 schools and<br />

kura currently use Kiva to address bullying behaviour and<br />

they have reported a 25% reduction in bullying within the<br />

first year alone.<br />

Rolleston College, along with other kura in our Kahui Ako, is<br />

excited to be part of this programme.<br />

Open evening <strong>2022</strong><br />

SAVE THE DATE<br />

Thursday 19 <strong>May</strong> <strong>2022</strong><br />

On Thursday 19th of <strong>May</strong> from 6-8pm we will host our annual open evening for prospective<br />

learners and their whānau. This is an opportunity to come and see what the college has on offer.<br />

Information regarding this evening will go to the feeder primary schools but if you want to know<br />

more please make contact with our school office.<br />

MILESTONE MAN: Veteran Lincoln prop Graeme Greenslade is accorded a<br />

guard of honour to recognise his 100th division one match for the club.<br />

TIGHT FINISH: Samuel McPherson stretches out to score during<br />

Lincoln’s big win over Woodend.<br />

Lincoln dish out thrashing<br />

• By Tatiana Gibbs<br />

LINCOLN’S TIGHT five<br />

dominated the pack battle – and<br />

the scoring – as Lincoln thrashed<br />

Woodend 65-7 to lead pool A<br />

in the Luisetti Seeds combined<br />

division one rugby competition.<br />

Graeme Greenslade, was not<br />

among the try scorers but Saturday’s<br />

match was still memorable<br />

as the tighthead prop was belatedly<br />

presented with a blazer<br />

recognising his 100th division<br />

one match for the club.<br />

Described as a “durable, genuine<br />

team guy” by coach Bevan<br />

Sisson, Greenslade reached the<br />

landmark two weeks ago, but the<br />

handover was delayed so family<br />

could attend following the relaxation<br />

of Covid-19 restrictions.<br />

“His whole family has been<br />

involved in the club for a long<br />

time, so it’s great for him,” Sisson<br />

said.<br />

Lincoln hooker Sam Cottam<br />

claimed the opening points of<br />

the match, finding a crack in<br />

Woodend’s defence in the sixth<br />

minute and added a second six<br />

minutes later at Lincoln Domain.<br />

Lincoln’s destructive power<br />

continued as locks George and<br />

Lyndon Dunshea followed up<br />

with three tries between them,<br />

with George Dunshea and Cottam<br />

both ultimately recorded<br />

hat-tricks.<br />

Rookie Quade Brady-Leathem<br />

also scored a double.<br />

With five minutes left in the<br />

first half, Woodend charged<br />

inside Lincoln’s 22, but couldn’t<br />

gain any metres after trying to<br />

break through both sides of the<br />

field.<br />

“I was pleased about (our<br />

defence),” Sisson said.<br />

“Especially in that first half<br />

when they were on our line<br />

there. The boys defended really<br />

well.”<br />

The home side secured two<br />

more tries to make the score<br />

45-0 at half-time, with first fiveeighths<br />

Thomas Keeling converting<br />

five of the seven tries.<br />

It didn’t take long in the<br />

second half for Lincoln’s flat<br />

and fast passing to reach Brady-<br />

Leathem, who picked a gap in<br />

fought right to the end.”<br />

Pool C: Ohoka 14 Springston<br />

Woodend’s defence to put the<br />

ball down.<br />

“Our young winger Quade had<br />

his first start for us and he played<br />

well I thought,” Sisson said.<br />

“He came off his wing and<br />

scored a couple of tries, I’m<br />

pleased for him.”<br />

Woodend’s first five-eighth<br />

Aiden Wakefield scored all of the<br />

visitors’ points in the 52nd minute,<br />

through a converted try.<br />

While delighted with the margin,<br />

Sisson said room to improve<br />

executing their set plays ahead of<br />

Saturday’s fourth round match<br />

with Methven.<br />

didn’t, so that was a bit disappointing.<br />

On the other side, we<br />

scored lots of points,” he said.<br />

“Methven are going to be<br />

tough. <strong>May</strong>be duck shooting will<br />

do us a favour and they might all<br />

go home,” Sisson laughed.<br />

“But that will be a real test for<br />

our lads.”<br />

In other games Southbridge<br />

defeated Ashley 39-20, after trailing<br />

12-15 at half-time.<br />

Southbridge coach Reece Allen<br />

said using the conditions well,<br />

meant Ashley faced the wind<br />

and the sun in the second half.<br />

“We weathered the storm in<br />

“We’re looking at this week<br />

(against Woodend) as a good<br />

lead up into three pretty important<br />

games leading into the<br />

playoffs.”<br />

Prebbleton defeated Rolleston<br />

in the Ellesmere derby in pool<br />

B, beating Rolleston 64-10 after<br />

leading a close contest 12-10 at<br />

the break.<br />

A standout four tries from<br />

halfback Brodie Thomas and a<br />

halftime tune up got the team<br />

back on track said Prebbleton<br />

coach Dave Kettles.<br />

“Our guys were ill-disciplined<br />

in the first 40 and very inaccurate,<br />

and Rolleston kept themselves<br />

right in the game,” he said.<br />

Darfield, off the back of an<br />

8-35 loss against Methven,<br />

now take on Prebbleton in an<br />

Ellesmere division one clash on<br />

“Darfield will be really hard<br />

to beat at home, they’re a quality<br />

Explosive holiday show wows<br />

Explosions, fire and a dinosaur delighted a packed house of hundreds in a highlight of the Council's<br />

holiday programmes.<br />

Experienced science communicator Amadeo Ballestero wowed around 500 people, mainly children at<br />

the Rolleston Community Centre with his first Canterbury Explosive Science show.<br />

Mr Ballestero recently moved to Canterbury after 20 years in Science Outreach with the Otago<br />

Museum, where his shows were hugely popular across the lower South Island, combining explosions,<br />

fire, sound and more to share his passion of science with young audiences.<br />

His popularity has spread to Canterbury with the first 300 tickets for the <strong>Selwyn</strong> show being snapped<br />

up in minutes, Rolleston Community Centre Manager Oana Jones says.<br />

The show lived up to expectations, with experiments using hydrogen and helium balloons, dry ice,<br />

explosions and a burning Rubens Tube demonstrating the movement of sound waves.<br />

“It was good to see how quickly people embraced the idea. Everyone seemed to have a great time<br />

and we got really good feedback. We’re already planning another show for the next school holidays<br />

and considering a supervised holiday programme.”<br />

The show was part of a busy holiday calendar of events across the district at <strong>Selwyn</strong> Libraries,<br />

Community and Recreation Centres.<br />

Activities included technology and craft events,<br />

author book readings, the Christchurch Walking<br />

Festival and even a visit from the furry friends<br />

from Southern Huskies New Zealand.<br />

The libraries Edge Connector vehicle ran a full<br />

programme visiting communities most distant<br />

from the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Libraries, bringing books,<br />

technology kits and craft events. While, the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports Centre hosted its second holiday<br />

programme with 24 young people enjoying an<br />

active week of sports, activities and outings.<br />

Darfield Kirwee pipeline<br />

works progressing<br />

The Darfield Kirwee pipeline is now 85% complete, with the project<br />

team now working on seven fronts to complete the final works along<br />

roadways in the coming months, before the last pieces are completed.<br />

Several sections of roadworks along the route are expected to<br />

reopen in coming weeks with the pipeline work rapidly progressing.<br />

This includes Aylesbury Road between Wards and Miles Road,<br />

which will allow road users to go from SH1 to SH73 and from SH73<br />

to Two Chain Road before needing to detour to Walkers Road. The<br />

one way system between SH1 and Burdons Road is still in place.<br />

A critical part of the works to run pipes under SH1 and the rail line is<br />

progressing well with the first two of three pipes under the highway<br />

being completed. With the crossings of State Highway 1 and the<br />

railway line nearing completion work has been able to start on Burnham Road, which will be one-way<br />

between State Highway 1 and Burnham School Road to allow connection to the already laid line.<br />

The safety of road users and our staff is of extremely high importance to the Council and we thank those<br />

that have been following the traffic management in place. We appreciate these works cause disruption to<br />

your day and are working as efficiently as we can to complete these and have roads returned for use.<br />

The pipeline is on track to be completed at the end of June <strong>2022</strong>. You can check on progress and<br />

updates at selwyn.govt.nz/darfieldkirweewatstewater<br />

The Council will hold further discussions with the wider Darfield and Kirwee community about connecting<br />

to the pipeline in the future.<br />

Council staff and volunteers<br />

helping rural communities with<br />

RAT kits<br />

Across rural <strong>Selwyn</strong> areas, Civil Defence volunteers have been<br />

out making sure vulnerable people have access to Rapid Antigen<br />

Test (RAT) kits.<br />

A group of 27 volunteers from the Council’s Civil Defence<br />

Community Response Teams (CRTs) answered the call in March to<br />

help distribute the kits, <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Emergency Management’s<br />

Community Resilience Coordinator Sue Jenkins says. Council<br />

staff including rangers, parks and reserve staff and building team<br />

members also lent a hand.<br />

“The CRT members have been wonderful, they’ve all been so keen<br />

to do it. They all just put their hand up and said absolutely! Civil<br />

Defence have really appreciated the support from other Council staff<br />

as well.”<br />

Over March and April, 650 RAT kits were distributed across 20<br />

remote locations including Arthur’s Pass, Castle Hill, Lake Coleridge,<br />

Springfield, Sheffield, Waddington, Whitecliffs, Horoātā Glentunnel,<br />

Coalgate, Dunsandel township, Kaianga/Dunsandel, Bankside,<br />

Southbridge, Rakaia Huts, Lakeside, Brookside/Irwell, <strong>Selwyn</strong> Huts,<br />

Greenpark, and Motukarara.<br />

After being contacted by a community member in need, each CRT<br />

member arranges contactless delivery.<br />

Community Response Team volunteer Judith Campbell says she<br />

really enjoys working alongside <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council and said it<br />

was great to be able to look after her community at the Rakaia Huts.<br />

One recent delivery was to a residents at Rakaia Huts, who has lived<br />

there for 50 years.<br />

“We said to him if for any reason he was unwell and needed to do a<br />

test, Dave or myself would go and help him do the test. He was very<br />

appreciative,” she says.<br />

Community Response Teams were created to ensure there are people<br />

all over the district who can support their community in an emergency<br />

and provide vital information to Civil Defence on what was happening<br />

in their community during an emergency. Currently there are 32 teams<br />

with 180 Community Response Team volunteers looking after 832<br />

different communities throughout the <strong>Selwyn</strong> district.<br />

Vaccine pop-up clinic<br />

The Canterbury District Health Board and the Council have<br />

organised a vaccination pop-up clinic at Foster Park on Saturday<br />

7 <strong>May</strong>.<br />

The vaccination clinic will be open at Foster Park near the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Sports Centre from 10am–3pm for anyone who wishes to be<br />

vaccinated.<br />

RATU LUVENITOGA is the<br />

newest member of an exclusive<br />

group at Southbridge Rugby<br />

Football Club, after running<br />

out for the division one side for<br />

the 200th time on Saturday, a<br />

feat that’s been 15 years in the<br />

making.<br />

Luvenitoga started out as a<br />

25-year-old utility back when<br />

he first joined the club in 2007<br />

after moving from Fiji with his<br />

friend and current teammate<br />

Peni Manumanuniliwa.<br />

“Home for us is in<br />

Southbridge,” said Luvenitoga.<br />

Fifteen years on, the 40-yearold<br />

finds himself in the loose<br />

trio, where Southbridge cocoach<br />

Tom Turner described<br />

him as a “uncompromisingly<br />

physical player with a bit of<br />

Fijian flair”.<br />

Luvenitoga played 55<br />

minutes at blindside flanker<br />

in the 39-20 Luisetti Seeds<br />

Combined Division One pool<br />

A win over Ashley.<br />

“It’s been a long journey to<br />

come this far,” Luvenitoga said,<br />

who ran onto Southbridge<br />

Domain with his son and three<br />

daughters.<br />

“I’ve been waiting for a few<br />

long years because of getting<br />

injuries after injury.”<br />

Southbridge coach Reece<br />

Allen reckoned Luvenitoga had<br />

clocked up about 170 games<br />

when he joined the club four<br />

years ago.<br />

“Every week when he’s been<br />

in the 22, I’ve been counting<br />

every training and yelling out<br />

the number. And it was good<br />

this last week to be able to yell<br />

out 199 and then 200,” Allen<br />

said.<br />

“It’s a very big moment for<br />

Ratu and his family. He played<br />

very well. He did his job and<br />

carried the ball and defensively<br />

was strong,” Allen said.<br />

“Very rarely (Luvenitoga)<br />

misses a tackle, and he brings<br />

real physicality. He’s still<br />

putting in the work, but it’ll be<br />

whether or not his body can<br />

hold.”<br />

The rise of the stock pickers<br />

AMANDA BOWES-DURAND<br />

For those interested in share markets and how to<br />

make serious wealth from them there’s a very interesting<br />

investment firm with a growing Canterbury presence.<br />

This is the New Zealand based Australasian hedge fund<br />

start up, Chance Voight Investment Partners Limited<br />

(CVI Partners).<br />

Hedge funds, legendary across the world for their<br />

concentrated well-timed calls on the share market and the<br />

money they’ve made for their investor base were described<br />

in a recent study as the ‘smart money’ in the markets.<br />

Chance Voight has been established with a view to mining<br />

extraordinary profits from the Australian stock market and<br />

as Bernard Whimp, the founder and CIO of Chance Voight,<br />

says ‘We’ll be deploying our unique insights and investment<br />

style with the aim of compounding investor capital at 20%<br />

per annum or better over multiple years’.<br />

Setting up CVI Partners in 2018 as a specialist deep<br />

value stock picking investment firm, Bernard was looking to<br />

capitalize on almost a decade of experience as a professional<br />

investor in companies listed on the Australian share market<br />

(the ASX).<br />

He concentrates on the ASX, as experience has shown<br />

him that in this part of the world that’s where many of the<br />

best share market money-making opportunities are.<br />

So how did CVI come about?<br />

“Well,” Bernard says, “It’s really about the sheer joy of<br />

doing what you love day and night”.<br />

A decade ago, Bernard wanted to test a theory. He made<br />

a quick fortune by making offers to buy shares directly from<br />

shareholders in companies listed on the NZ Stock Exchange.<br />

At Christmas time in 2010, he launched a series of<br />

audacious off-market offers which saw him pick up a profit<br />

of almost $4 million in a matter of months, all kicked off<br />

with an initial $7,000 investment. Daring to do something<br />

different made lots of money.<br />

To most people, the share market can be a bewildering<br />

array of unfathomable numbers – Bernard sees it in fine<br />

granular detail.<br />

The ASX, with its 2000 companies, provides the<br />

opportunity to be incredibly selective when buying shares.<br />

Most years, he is able to identify a handful of terrific<br />

opportunities. The NZX in comparison has only about 160<br />

listed companies.<br />

The share market is essentially a treasure hunt, he says.<br />

“We’re really more like a private equity investment firm<br />

operating in listed markets with all the advantages of the<br />

buy and sell ability that listed markets provide but without<br />

the tortuous negotiations on purchase that private equity<br />

requires.”<br />

CVI Partners Chief Investment Offi cer (CIO), Bernard Whimp<br />

The cornerstone of our investment view is that we aim to<br />

never spend an investor dollar unless we believe that we’re<br />

getting at least two dollars of value for it.<br />

“As a firm, we hunt for situations where we can obtain<br />

substantial value for nothing, where we can buy a stake in a<br />

worthwhile business that is worth a lot more than the price<br />

we are paying.”<br />

As Bernard puts it, ‘guys like me don’t believe the passive<br />

index share that’s been popular over the last decade will<br />

continue to deliver good returns into the future and there’s<br />

now lots of evidence emerging that this passive investment<br />

style so many New Zealand investors are involved with one<br />

way or another, has ‘hit the wall’. We think that ‘stock picking’<br />

where you are looking to hold a concentrated portfolio of<br />

winning situations with high probability to the upside may<br />

well prove to be a superior share market investment strategy<br />

in the years ahead.<br />

He doesn’t rate most of what goes on around investment<br />

in the share market at all. “It’s essential in a hedge fund to<br />

establish an unconventional investment style.<br />

You’re not likely to make much money doing what<br />

everyone else does, as the saying goes - You’ve got to be<br />

different, and you’ve got to be right!”<br />

We’re looking to deliver investors annualized returns at<br />

that 20%pa mark. We’re not reinventing the wheel in doing<br />

this. These types of returns are typical of good Australian<br />

hedge fund operations, it’s just that you’ve probably never<br />

heard of them, and no one’s ever offered you access to one<br />

in New Zealand.<br />

Bernard is building Chance Voight with an innovative<br />

structure where besides managing money in the ASX<br />

for external investors Chance Voight will have a lot of<br />

‘proprietary capital’ (the firm’s own money) at work. To this<br />

end the Chance Voight parent company intends to undertake<br />

an initial public offering (IPO) in a few months’ time. This<br />

will give smaller investors an opportunity to back the firm’s<br />

concentrated stock picking investment style and learn quite<br />

a lot about the share market as the same time. ‘We’ll be<br />

trying to get many of our investment insights across to our<br />

shareholders’, says Bernard.<br />

Christchurch lawyer and friend, Paul Currie, has this to<br />

say about Bernard:<br />

“I have never met anyone who has the share market<br />

understanding and insights that Bernard does. He is very<br />

approachable and exceptionally interesting to talk to.”<br />

Outside of its ASX share market funds Chance Voight is<br />

keenly aware that what’s important for many New Zealand<br />

investors today is regular cash flow and income to help pay<br />

the bills in these inflationary times. To this end Chance<br />

Voight has its high yield mortgage fund available which<br />

pays investors regular interest at 10% per annum.<br />

All investments in the fund are secured by mortgage<br />

over real estate and perhaps most importantly of all,<br />

the fund does not take on any property development<br />

risk, meaning that the fund does not lend on property<br />

development situations.<br />

As Bernard points out, “it’s lending on lower priority<br />

mortgages to development projects that has caused so<br />

many historical problems for New Zealand investors over<br />

the years and the CVI Fund is designed not to take this<br />

type of risk on board”.<br />

SELWYN RURAL LIFE<br />

Gradual recovery from<br />

Covid blockages<br />

Life on the processing chain isn’t<br />

yet ‘normal’ but meat plants are<br />

recovering from Covid-19 hold-ups,<br />

industry leaders say.<br />

The meat industry has been hit hard<br />

by Covid as people isolate at home.<br />

Companies continue to work through<br />

the back-log that has built up as a<br />

result of reduced staff numbers and a<br />

chronic labour shortage.<br />

Capacity will vary from plant to<br />

plant but it is ranging between 70–90<br />

per cent across the country, meat<br />

industry bodies estimated in late<br />

April. Year-on-year processing is still<br />

behind last season across all stock<br />

types.<br />

The length of processing delays is<br />

expected to depend on how far each<br />

region is through the processing<br />

season. Every processor and plant<br />

will have different run modes for<br />

ovine and bovine, though virtually<br />

are bringing on additional capacity<br />

for cattle, moving stock across their<br />

networks and moving workers to<br />

other plants to ease the pressure.<br />

Across the country, lamb processing<br />

was improving and was about 2–4<br />

weeks behind last year at last report..<br />

Cattle processing remained behind<br />

last season and the situation was<br />

compounded by an increasing<br />

number of cull cows being sent to<br />

plants for processing, which was<br />

typical for this time of year.<br />

Industry bodies were continuing<br />

to monitor the cattle situation in<br />

the lower South Island heading into<br />

winter. Some companies were now<br />

operating close to typical seasonal<br />

capacity and were focused on<br />

processing cull cows.<br />

The global supply chain continues<br />

to be significantly affected by the<br />

pandemic with Shanghai, Rotterdam<br />

and the west coast of North<br />

America particularly impacted. Port<br />

congestion, vessel schedule changes<br />

and a shortage of containers are<br />

causing bottlenecks and increased<br />

costs across the supply chain.<br />

While Shanghai is not the major<br />

import port in China for New<br />

Zealand red meat, it is still an<br />

important entry point. At this<br />

stage, the port is continuing<br />

to operate, but there is<br />

significant disruption and<br />

congestion. As Shanghai is one of<br />

the largest ports, the disruption<br />

there could spread throughout<br />

the Chinese port network and<br />

lead to delays and congestion at<br />

other ports.<br />

For New Zealand’s meat<br />

exporters, this could mean delays<br />

in getting containers cleared and<br />

higher costs if containers have to be<br />

re-routed to<br />

other ports.<br />

There could also<br />

be a knock-on<br />

effect on the<br />

inland distribution<br />

Government eases<br />

worker squeeze<br />

The dairy industry is relieved the<br />

government is letting more international<br />

staff into the country.<br />

Recent changes to border exemption<br />

rules will increase the number of<br />

international workers allowed into New<br />

Zealand under the <strong>2022</strong> dairy class<br />

exception from 300 to 800.<br />

This is in addition to the 2021 dairy<br />

class exception visa which allowed 200<br />

international workers to enter the country.<br />

The dairy industry estimates that to<br />

fill the entire shortage it needs about<br />

4000 people, many of whom would<br />

take jobs in central Canterbury. Record<br />

low unemployment, combined with<br />

a prolonged Covid-19-related border<br />

closure, have contributed to the worker<br />

shortage.<br />

DairyNZ chief executive Dr Tim Mackle<br />

says it has been working hard to make<br />

sure the Government understands the<br />

huge pressure farmers are under, due to<br />

workforce shortages. The organisation<br />

has pushed for 1500 international dairy<br />

workers into the country in time for the<br />

<strong>2022</strong> dairy season on June 1.<br />

“We made it clear to Government that<br />

the 300 dairy border class exception<br />

workers previously approved was nowhere<br />

near enough to meet the demands onfarm<br />

and reduce the current high levels of<br />

farmer stress,” Dr Mackle said.<br />

Dr Mackle strongly encouraged farmers<br />

who want international workers on board<br />

for calving to apply through the border<br />

exception process. Employers must<br />

apply to DairyNZ for nomination and<br />

have a class exception visa granted by<br />

Immigration New Zealand<br />

“It’s now simpler for farmers to use the<br />

class exception process, so we hope to see<br />

farmers take up the opportunity. People<br />

no longer need to stay in MIQ or isolate.<br />

There is also no limit on the number of<br />

farm assistants who can apply.”<br />

Workers on a class exception visa need<br />

to be paid at least $28 per hour. A limited<br />

number of dairy workers may be eligible<br />

to enter New Zealand under other criteria.<br />

For more details see www.dairynz.co.nz/<br />

border<br />

DairyNZ has also launched a ‘Join<br />

Us’ campaign aiming to connect dairy<br />

farmers and New Zealanders and inviting<br />

Kiwis to join a dairy job (www.godairy.<br />

co.nz).<br />

“We continue to encourage Kiwis to join<br />

our sector and farmers have been taking<br />

a range of steps to make dairy farming<br />

more attractive to staff, however in such<br />

a tight labour market the contribution<br />

international staff make to keep farms<br />

running is critical,” Dr Mackle said.<br />

GARDENING<br />

BEETROOT IS AN interesting<br />

vegetable to grow and it’s<br />

incredibly versatile in the<br />

kitchen.<br />

The root can be grated raw into<br />

a salad, roasted with winter vege,<br />

made into a chocolate cake and<br />

more, and the leaves can be used<br />

in the same way you would use<br />

spinach.<br />

It’s also incredibly good for<br />

you. It’s a good source of folic<br />

acid, fibre, manganese and potassium<br />

and the greens are rich in<br />

calcium, iron and vitamins A<br />

and C.<br />

There are two main types of<br />

beetroot. The regular round kind<br />

and the less known cylindra variety<br />

which, as it’s name suggests,<br />

is a cylindrical beetroot. Because<br />

of it’s shape cylindra beetroot is<br />

great for slicing and then bottling.<br />

Next it’s simply a matter of<br />

working out where to plant your<br />

seedlings. Beetroot likes welldrained,<br />

friable (breaks apart in<br />

your hands) soil.<br />

It grows well next to brassicas,<br />

like broccoli and cauliflower,<br />

which take longer to mature<br />

and spread out. This means you<br />

can plant beetroot in the spaces<br />

in between your brassicas, and<br />

harvest them before the brassicas<br />

start needing the extra room.<br />

Alternatively, it grows great in<br />

pots. Wherever you plant, simply<br />

dig a little 3cm deep hole, place<br />

the seedling in the hole and fill in<br />

with soil.<br />

Beetroot likes moisture as it<br />

starts to develop so keep your<br />

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz<br />

Healthy beetroot<br />

VERSATILE: Beetroot can be grown in the garden or in<br />

a pot.<br />

plants well watered.<br />

In around 10 to 12 weeks it<br />

should be ready. The great thing<br />

about beetroot is it can be eaten<br />

at any size, just dig it up and<br />

enjoy.<br />

Use violas to add<br />

colour over winter<br />

JUST BECAUSE we’re heading<br />

into the colder months, it doesn’t<br />

mean your garden needs to<br />

wallow in dull evergreens and<br />

bare branches. In fact, it’s more<br />

than possible to add a splash<br />

of winter colour with vibrant<br />

flowering plants like viola.<br />

This petite plant has a really<br />

nice colour range that well and<br />

truly fits the season – rich violets,<br />

cool yellows, crisp whites with a<br />

dash of colour and more.<br />

Think your place could do with<br />

some brightening up this winter?<br />

When thinking about where to<br />

plant, look for wide, open spaces.<br />

Violas grow really well alongside<br />

paving or patios. They also look<br />

fantastic in borders around spring<br />

bulbs or roses – particularly as<br />

the roses go dormant and lose<br />

their leaves.<br />

And if you’re a hanging basket<br />

fan, use violas to create a welcoming<br />

entrance at your place<br />

throughout the cooler months.<br />

You can also pop them in a pot<br />

– in fact they look great planted<br />

around the outside of potted<br />

shrubs or citrus trees.<br />

Wherever you decide to plant,<br />

simply dig in a balanced fertiliser,<br />

like nitrophoska blue. Then plant<br />

your seedlings in small holes,<br />

about 20cm apart.<br />

PETITE: Violas reward with<br />

a huge splash of colour.<br />

If placing them in a pot, make<br />

sure you use a good potting mix<br />

to provide all the nutrients they<br />

need. Nurture their love of space<br />

and, in particular, good air circulation,<br />

by keeping your pots away<br />

from places like under the eaves<br />

of your house. This will help prevent<br />

them getting downy mildew.<br />

In about four to six weeks, you<br />

should be rewarded with that<br />

splash of colour. Just remember<br />

to pick off the dead heads to<br />

encourage them to flower, and<br />

you’ll get to enjoy the effect for<br />

much longer.<br />

Are you ready to grow?<br />

For real Kiwi gardeners who like<br />

to get their hands dirty.<br />

GARDENING 35<br />

Plum trees need a pollinator<br />

PLUMS ARE so easy to grow and,<br />

when planted with the correct<br />

pollinator, will fruit heavily after<br />

only a few years.<br />

Plums have become more<br />

popular in the past few years with<br />

home gardeners growing more of<br />

their own fruit.<br />

Plum trees grow between 3-4m<br />

high depending on the variety<br />

chosen and how they are pruned.<br />

The three main types flower and<br />

fruit differently. The European<br />

plum, Prunus domestica, flowers<br />

in late September on spurs.<br />

European plums generally have<br />

smaller, rounder oval fruit which<br />

need pollinating. The japanese<br />

plum, Prunus salicinas, flowers in<br />

early September on last season’s<br />

new wood. It has large, often<br />

pointed fruit. The cherry plums,<br />

which are Prunus cerasifera, are a<br />

cross between the European and<br />

Japanese plums. They flower in<br />

late winter.<br />

Plums prefer a sunny spot with<br />

good drainage. Spring frosts can<br />

be a problem if the plant is flowering<br />

at the time. Water the plant<br />

well during dry periods, fertilise<br />

in early and late spring.<br />

Plums are vigorous growers so<br />

should be pruned for shape and<br />

to keep control of the plant. Thin<br />

out large lateral growths, remove<br />

diseased dead branches; thin<br />

the tree out to allow light in to<br />

FRESH: Plums are popular with children but watch out the birds don’t get them first.<br />

promote spur formation.<br />

Pruning should be done after<br />

harvest to prevent disease. Brown<br />

rot is the main disease that affects<br />

plums, along with the odd insect.<br />

Birds are also a pest.<br />

Spray with copper and oil three<br />

times in winter, then with mavrik<br />

or carbaryl and copper monthly<br />

while the tree is in leaf. Watch out<br />

for birds as they love plums too.<br />

Most plum trees need a<br />

pollinator to ensure fruit set.<br />

Even self-fertile plants will benefit<br />

from a companion plant. Some<br />

varieties pollinate lots of other<br />

varieties.<br />

You can even buy trees with<br />

pollinators on them. Two or three<br />

varieties are grafted on to a tree<br />

so you get two to three types of<br />

plum on the one tree, which saves<br />

room and the plums get pollinated<br />

Subaru Forester provides that extra grip<br />

A FRIEND AND I were talking<br />

about his new car. Well, it’s not<br />

new, but it is a late model frontwheel-drive<br />

wagon with a high<br />

power engine.<br />

He was telling me how much he<br />

misses the four-wheel-drive system<br />

of his previous car – a Volkswagen<br />

Passat. He says the 4Motion system<br />

that car incorporated provided<br />

stability and surety in a corner,<br />

something front-wheel-drive only<br />

doesn’t provide to the same extent.<br />

I can attest to that, every time<br />

I get in a car with four-wheeldrive<br />

I’m immediately aware of<br />

the feel that gives you, that solid<br />

connection with the road. There’s<br />

none more notable than Subaru’s<br />

symmetrical full-time four-wheeldrive<br />

network, it’s a cracker in<br />

terms of how it makes you feel such<br />

a part of the car.<br />

That drive system is part of every<br />

new Subaru sold in this country<br />

and is one of the elements that<br />

make the Forester sport utility<br />

vehicle such a trusted and popular<br />

model within Subaru’s line-up.<br />

The Forester has just had a<br />

facelift for <strong>2022</strong> and the changes<br />

include revised headlights, fog<br />

lights, front bumper and grille<br />

treatment.<br />

The range also gets greater<br />

technology, the Eyesight driver<br />

assistance network has additional<br />

functions such as lane centering<br />

monitoring, lane departure<br />

prevention and autonomous<br />

emergency steering.<br />

Subaru’s off-road X-mode<br />

system has also been advanced to<br />

re-engage once the vehicle speed<br />

drops to 35km/h or less. There is a<br />

multitude of other goodies added<br />

across the range including a driver<br />

gesture system to adjust internal<br />

temperature.<br />

However, it’s fair to say the<br />

entry-level model as tested doesn’t<br />

get all of the enhancements but,<br />

nevertheless, the Forester as a range<br />

hasn’t lost any of the fundamentals<br />

that have made it the vehicle of<br />

choice for everyday transport and<br />

adventure-seekers alike. The latter,<br />

particularly, it is a popular SUV in<br />

the ski-field car park and anywhere<br />

where that little bit of extra grip is<br />

needed.<br />

That well-proven method of<br />

getting drive to the road, or any<br />

surface for that matter, is also<br />

matched by another Subaru point<br />

of difference. The 2.5-litre petrol<br />

engine is a boxer type, or just like<br />

my family’s old Jowett Javelin and<br />

Volkswagen’s of my childhood, a<br />

horizontally-opposed engine.<br />

As advances in technology<br />

would have it, the Forester’s boxer<br />

engine is state-of-the art with twinoverhead<br />

camshafts and four valves<br />

over each piston. Unlike some<br />

turbocharged Forester models from<br />

the past, the Forester has been sans<br />

turbo here since around 2012, and<br />

really it doesn’t need forced boost,<br />

it is a strong engine and the power<br />

outputs reflect that.<br />

Subaru claims peak power<br />

STABLE: Full-time four-wheel-drive platform provides grip<br />

when weather is at its worst.<br />

SUBARU FORESTER: Entry-level model still has plenty of goodies.<br />

of 136kW with 239Nm of<br />

torque. While these figures<br />

arrive at 5800rpm and 4400rpm<br />

respectively, it must be taken<br />

into account that there is a lot<br />

of natural torque developed by<br />

the flat-four design. Response to<br />

accelerator request is delightful<br />

with a solid impetus developed and<br />

transmitted through the freedom of<br />

a continuously variable automatic<br />

transmission. Subaru has been<br />

developing the driveline constantly<br />

for as long as I can remember<br />

and today’s system is smooth,<br />

responsive, forceful yet frugal.<br />

Along with the elements needed<br />

to keep pace with today’s traffic,<br />

the fuel usage engineers have been<br />

constantly leaning out the boxer<br />

unit to a point where today it is<br />

little different to any inline fourcylinder<br />

engine with much the<br />

same power outputs.<br />

Subaru claims a combined cycle<br />

average of 7.4-litres per 100km for<br />

the 2498cc unit. During my testing<br />

time the fuel usage readout was<br />

listing a constant 8l/100km figure,<br />

which isn’t that far distant.<br />

At 100km/h the tachometer is<br />

pointing to a lazy 1500rpm, the<br />

engine merely sipping fuel at the<br />

rate of 5.5l/100km.<br />

On the subject of figures, the<br />

Forester will also accelerate to<br />

100km/h in 9.5sec and will make<br />

a highway overtake of 6.6sec (80-<br />

120km/h).<br />

One of the other benefits of the<br />

Forester’s driveline is that with the<br />

way the engine is laid flat, much of<br />

• Price – Subaru Forester,<br />

$42,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4625mm; width, 1815mm;<br />

height, 1730mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder<br />

136kW, 239Nm,<br />

continuously variable<br />

automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 9.5sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 7.4/100km<br />

its weight sits low in the sub-frame.<br />

That keeps the centre of gravity<br />

low, maintaining balance and<br />

composure in a corner. Sport utility<br />

vehicles are not ordinarily known<br />

for their handling prowess, but the<br />

Forester has tidy handling manners<br />

and much feel through the steering.<br />

I mentioned that involving<br />

aspect of the Forester’s make-up<br />

in my introduction, it keeps the<br />

driver fully informed of the way<br />

it is handling cornering pressure.<br />

Subaru has revised the spring and<br />

damper rates on the Forester, ride<br />

comfort has been made greater and<br />

there seems to be little effect on the<br />

way the vehicle works in a corner.<br />

I’ve written many times over<br />

the years how double wishbone<br />

suspension provides a stable<br />

platform and the Forester benefits<br />

from that system at the rear. Up<br />

front a tradition strut system is<br />

utilised.<br />

The Forester lands here in three<br />

specifications, but take into account<br />

that there are actually five models<br />

to choose from, two of those being<br />

hybrids. I’ve driven the latter and<br />

can report that the hybrid is also<br />

a worthy proposition if you feel<br />

like doing just that little bit of<br />

something for the environment.<br />

As mentioned the evaluation car<br />

was the base model non-hybrid<br />

and it sits at $42,990. If you like a<br />

little bit of extra bling, the X-Sport<br />

model adds $5k while and all the<br />

bells and whistles Premium variant<br />

lists at $52,990. The hybrids start at<br />

$47,990.<br />

All have the same fundamentals<br />

underneath, and bear in mind<br />

that all variants come away with<br />

a five-star Australasian New Car<br />

Assessment Program safety rating.<br />

My wife and I have been talking<br />

about the vehicle we need to have<br />

when I retire, we can’t afford to<br />

run our old Toyota, it’s simply too<br />

thirsty.<br />

There’s a Subaru on the wish<br />

list, but we can’t afford a Forester<br />

so I’m thinking seriously about<br />

an XV. It’s just a little smaller than<br />

the Forester and it has just a 2-litre<br />

engine, but it’s also a car that<br />

gives you that full-on Subaru feel<br />

through the driveline; that’s a safety<br />

element as well as something that<br />

will give you grip when the worst<br />

weather hits Canterbury.<br />

It’s really just a matter of<br />

convincing my wife now is the time<br />

to get that order in.<br />

Ten years ago, a notice in the local paper led Ross<br />

to discover a love of playing music. The notice read<br />

‘No musical knowledge required’. Aged 65 at the time,<br />

Ross and some mates, none who had played music<br />

before, decided to head along and give it a go.<br />

Now he’s in several bands and tours in different<br />

towns playing music on a guitar he made himself.<br />

Ross’s musical journey started as a hobby when he<br />

stopped working, but it grew into something much more.<br />

He especially loves being part of a group. “It’s socialising<br />

with other people. It’s great. It keeps you happy.”<br />

Being with other people is something he also loves about<br />

living at Ryman. Ross enjoys volunteering at his village and<br />

getting involved. “We work on the bar during happy hour, go<br />

to some of the events, and that’s the great part about Ryman<br />

- you can go along to whatever you want. You just do what<br />

you want to.”<br />

Ross almost always has something on the go. One of the<br />

things he threw himself into was making not just one, but<br />

four guitars.<br />

Ross bought his first instrument, but then had the idea that<br />

he could make his own. He sources all the materials and he’s<br />

especially proud of the recycled wood he uses and where it<br />

comes from. For his first guitar, Ross used native kahikatea<br />

out of a century-old Nelson woolshed for the soundboard<br />

“<br />

I<br />

never did any music until I retired.<br />

The rest is history.<br />

”<br />

Ross<br />

AGE 75<br />

and recycled Southland beech, another<br />

New Zealand native, for the sides and neck.<br />

Music is a big part of Ross’s life, but it’s not his only passion.<br />

He’s just as fervent about motorhoming and tries to combine<br />

both passions whenever he can. Every year, he takes his RV<br />

to the annual Music in the Mountains festival which features<br />

four days of live performances in a valley near Nelson.<br />

Being able to travel while knowing your home is secure is<br />

another benefit of living in a Ryman village. “In the village,<br />

we’ve got no worries. And if we choose to go away anywhere,<br />

we know everything’s fine and looked after. We like the<br />

security. And joining in with everything. It’s just fun here.”<br />

Ryman’s Peace of Mind Guarantees are designed with your protection in mind, giving you<br />

the confidence to live the way you want and to embrace every opportunity. Take Ross for<br />

example. He’s a Ryman resident who began his musical journey later in life. His ‘no worries’<br />

lifestyle has enabled Ross to now play in several bands and tour different towns playing<br />

music on a guitar he made himself. A little certainty provides great reassurance in<br />

knowing you can pursue the things you love in retirement, without any worries.<br />

“In the village we’ve got no worries.”<br />

Can I offer on more than<br />

one property at a time?<br />

Some people fall in love at first sight<br />

when they’re looking to buy a property,<br />

but many like to keep their options until<br />

the last minute. This is understandable,<br />

because it can be scary signing up to such<br />

a major financial commitment if you think<br />

something better might come along. But<br />

it can also be hard to know what to do if<br />

you’re not sure if your offer on a property<br />

will be accepted and you are worried about<br />

missing out on the other ones on your<br />

wishlist.<br />

“Every time you make an offer on a<br />

property you are saying you are committed<br />

to buying it, subject to whatever conditions<br />

you include in the offer,” says the Real Estate<br />

Authority (REA). “These conditions might<br />

be things like getting a satisfactory property<br />

inspection, or confirming insurance, or<br />

having finance approved. It would be<br />

extremely unusual to add ‘we want the<br />

right to change our minds in case we see a<br />

property that we like more’.”<br />

Remember that a sale and purchase<br />

agreement – the document that you and the<br />

seller sign that lays out all the particulars<br />

of the property and any chattels being sold<br />

with it, the price you are prepared to pay<br />

and the date that it will take place – is a<br />

legally binding contract.<br />

“Whether you can make offers on other<br />

properties will depend on how your<br />

conditions are written. This is why it’s<br />

crucial to get legal advice before making<br />

the offer, which becomes legally binding<br />

as soon as it’s accepted. If you offer on a<br />

property while you’re waiting to hear back<br />

on another one, you could end up with two<br />

accepted offers and two legally binding<br />

contracts.”<br />

The REA says a seller doesn’t have to<br />

respond to your offer within a certain time<br />

frame unless there is a strict deadline, such<br />

as in a tender or deadline sale. If you are<br />

making an offer on a property that is for<br />

sale by negotiation or by advertised price,<br />

and you think you might want to keep your<br />

options open, talk to your lawyer about<br />

adding an expiry time to it.<br />

Alternatively, if the deadline for offers has<br />

not passed and you have a change of heart,<br />

you could consider asking the agent about<br />

withdrawing your offer. In this situation we<br />

recommend you have the agent confirm in<br />

writing that your offer has been withdrawn.<br />

“Keep in mind too that making a<br />

conditional offer on a property, such<br />

as having finance approved, will not<br />

necessarily provide you with a ‘get out of jail<br />

free card’ if you subsequently decide you<br />

don’t want to go through with the purchase.<br />

In this situation you could be required to<br />

prove you weren’t able to get finance. The<br />

better option is simply to arrange for your<br />

offer to be withdrawn promptly.”<br />

Buying a property is a<br />

complex process whether<br />

you’re doing it for the first<br />

time or not<br />

Buying a property is a complex process<br />

whether you’re doing it for the first time<br />

or not – but it’s important to take every<br />

decision seriously. If you’re finding it hard<br />

to keep going on your property search, or<br />

to commit to making an offer, it might be<br />

helpful to remind yourself about why you<br />

want to buy a home and to identify your<br />

must-haves. Writing these things down can<br />

help keep you on track and make it easier to<br />

stay focused.<br />

Presenting your home for sale?<br />

The presentation of your home<br />

doesn’t mean spending thousands<br />

on an upgrade either! So why<br />

wouldn’t you want to do everything<br />

possible to make it appealing to<br />

prospective purchasers?<br />

Street appeal<br />

The exterior of your home is the first<br />

thing buyers will see, so the property<br />

needs to look well-kept and inviting. Take<br />

a look at your place from the street and<br />

see it through a buyer’s eyes. So, cut the<br />

lawns, trim trees, plants and hedges, add<br />

some garden lights and place a nice pot or<br />

plant by the front door. Ensure the house<br />

exterior is cleaned or freshened with new<br />

paint if necessary, hose down drives, paths<br />

and fences, put stylish new numbers on<br />

the house and perhaps buy a funky new<br />

letter box!<br />

Make an entrance<br />

Even if your entrance or hallway is<br />

small, you can still give it some wow! A<br />

large mirror adds light and makes an<br />

entrance look twice the size. Fresh flowers,<br />

candles or a stylish piece of art create an<br />

inviting first impression. Ensure floors are<br />

clean whether timber, tiles or carpet.<br />

Create space<br />

Light, air and space are three key<br />

factors in presenting a home to the<br />

best advantage. Open up curtains<br />

and windows and use lamps and light<br />

fittings for mood and ambience. Arrange<br />

furniture to maximise space and remove<br />

items that make the room appear<br />

cramped.<br />

Fresh feel<br />

Freshen rooms with new paint if<br />

necessary, but aim for neutral tones which<br />

are more versatile for buyers. Add a splash<br />

of colour in cushions, throws, artwork or<br />

a vase of flowers. Invest in a new duvet or<br />

bedspread and always make the bed!<br />

Clear out clutter<br />

Storage space sells but clutter<br />

complicates! Clean out your cupboards,<br />

shelves and garage, and get rid of<br />

unnecessary clutter. Buyers inspect<br />

wardrobes and cupboards so tidy them up<br />

and reduce the number of photos, books,<br />

nicknacks on display – they distract<br />

buyers, too!<br />

Beautify the bathroom<br />

Replace or resurface fittings if necessary,<br />

but otherwise you can simply beautify<br />

your bathroom with thorough and<br />

fastidious cleaning, thick opulent towels,<br />

a tray of beautiful soaps and some lush,<br />

green plants. Invest in a new shower<br />

curtain or laundry hamper, and maybe a<br />

sleek, modern towel rail.<br />

Clean clean clean<br />

Cleaning is a mandatory part of<br />

selling your home: have carpets, rugs<br />

and upholstery commercially cleaned<br />

and sanitised, clean drapes and blinds to<br />

look like new, polish glass and furniture,<br />

wash down all surfaces and fittings in<br />

the bathroom and kitchen, clean all light<br />

fittings, wash windows inside and out,<br />

deodorise your home to eliminate any<br />

odours from pets, cooking or smoke.<br />

Outdoor spaces<br />

Even a small patio, deck or terrace<br />

can be enhanced with a café table and<br />

chairs. Add some colourful accessories –<br />

placemats, candle lamps, pots and plants,<br />

and there you have an extra living area.<br />

If space is not limited, hang a hammock,<br />

string some outdoor lights, position a<br />

garden sculpture or create a water feature<br />

that buyers will love.<br />

Hire a handyman<br />

Squeaking doors, dripping taps, cracked<br />

tiles, broken fences, leaking toilets or<br />

appliances that don’t work are a turn-off<br />

for buyers. If you can’t repair or replace<br />

things yourself, then hire a handyman to<br />

make sure everything in your home works<br />

as it should.<br />

Finish it first<br />

Buyers want to see a finished home,<br />

not one that’s still being fixed! So finish<br />

everything before you list your home<br />

for sale, then launch it onto the market<br />

when it looks its absolute best – you have<br />

nothing to lose and everything to gain!<br />
