Plea to councillors to defy

housing intensification laws

• By Chris Barclay

RESIDENTS GROUPS across

Christchurch have banded together

to implore city councillors to defy

the Government’s new housing

intensification laws.

The plea also extends to outgoing

Mayor Lianne Dalziel who,

like the majority of current city

councillors, has expressed serious

reservations about the impact

of a centralised and bi-partisan

solution to the nationwide housing

crisis.

Although The Resource

Management Amendment Act

2021 is now law, 15 residents’

associations want city councillors

to at least display a gesture

of solidarity when housing

intensification legislation features

on the agenda for September 8.

The city council has been

developing a plan change to

implement the requirements under

the National Policy Statement

on Urban Development and

amendments to the RMA.

City councillors will decide

whether to effectively rubber stamp

part of the bill, knowing resistance

will essentially be futile.

The legislation includes

Government-directed medium

density residential standards

which will apply across the city

and allow the construction of three

townhouses of up to three storeys

each on almost all residential sites.

• Turn to page 4

HOUSING SOLUTION: Controversial Government legislation to ease

the housing crisis means it will be easier for developers to build

high density housing in Christchurch, like this townhouse project

in Winchester St, Merivale.

Hit-andrun

• By Tina Grumball

POLICE HAVE located and

charged a 64-year-old man in

relation to the alleged hit-and-run

on Marshland Rd last Friday.

Just after 8.20pm, a woman

in her 50s was crossing the road

at the intersection with Voss St

when she was struck by a white

van.

The driver did not stop to check

on the woman and drove away.

She was knocked to the ground

and began to bleed from the

head.

She was taken to Christchurch

Hospital with serious injuries, but

was discharged on Tuesday and is

recovering at home.

The man was charged with failing

to stop and ascertain injury

after a crash.

He will appear in the district

court on September 20.

MILESTONE: Achieving human entry into the Cathedral has been a key focus of the

project this year.

Covid death

LAST WEEK, The Star published

an article about the Covid-19-

related death of 88-year-old John

Butcher.

In the article it was reported

John had been put into Burwood

Hospital for respite care at the

behest of his wife, and quoted

another family member as saying

“it was the beginning of the end”.

John’s wife, Allison Butcher,

says her husband was put into

Burwood on the advice of medical

specialists, and was not at her

behest.

Allison said the respite care at

Burwood came after a serious

mishap John had while living at

home.

It was at Burwood that his

condition was assessed and determined

rest home care was needed

for him, Allison said.

She said her husband had

wanted a private cremation.

The Star apologises to Allison

Butcher for any distress the article

caused.

on city council maps as Merivale,

Tony Simons,

chair of the

Association,

challenged city

Simons

councillors to at

least delay the

process by not

voting to “give

the law effect” next month.

“Other councils around the

country have basically rubber

stamped this and said: ‘There’s

nothing we can do about it, the

Government has passed a law, we

just need to do what we’re told’.

Sorry guys.

“What we’re saying to councillors

is you can vote No,” Simons

said, acknowledging the Government

can still override that

decision.

“It’s possible the Government

might bring in a statutory manager

to manage the process on

the council’s behalf.

“Politically that wouldn’t necessarily

be a bad thing. If councillors

vote according to their

conscience and the upshot is the

Government intervenes then so

be it,” Simons said.

City councillors and Dalziel

were emailed a message from the

residents’ associations late last

night, and Simons was hopeful

they would comply with the bid

to disrupt the process.

“It’s a point of principle. You

can argue it’s symbolic, you can

argue it’s toothless and it’s not

going to stop the inevitable,” he

said.

“My argument is that’s not the

point. You stand up to people who

try to bully you into submission.

“If you’re all against it, why

would you vote to be complicit

in enabling it? September 8 is the

last chance for the council to at

least delay the process.”

Dalziel was unavailable for

comment yesterday but has

previously described the bill as “a

blunt one-size-fits-all approach”.

City councillors will also

consider a plan change which

outlines what the council proposes

regarding intensification in

He agreed with Dalziel that the

legislation was inflexible.

“It’s literally one-size-fits-all,

which is not helpful when you

have a district plan already.

“I could live with two-storey.

Three stories is huge in the suburbs

and you have no ability to

really challenge it.

“We’re not

or not, we’re

Woods

we can include to

mitigate some of

the fallout from

what the government

has imposed.

“We can kick and scream all

we like, we’ve got to hope at some

stage either the government or

opposition go ‘this isn’t good’

and back away from it.”

“What would have been better

is for the rules to apply, for example,

within the Four Avenues,

which would help lift our population

in the CBD.

“All you’ll see is more intensification

in areas where it’s not

warranted. There’s nothing to

stop monstrosities going up right

next door where you’ve got no

say. I genuinely think it’s going to

wreck suburbs.

“I’ve been supportive of the National

Party and even they agreed

to this. This cross-party thing

between Labour and National to

fix the housing crisis . . . if you

go back to Economics 101 the

interest rates are correcting a lot

of that as we speak.”

Housing minister Megan

Woods, the MP for Wigram,

defended the Government’s

remedy to the housing crisis, one

endorsed by the National Party.

“We know historically that as a

country we had not been building

enough homes in the right

places to meet the needs of New

Zealanders,” she said.

“This makes our housing

unaffordable. This Government

has come up with a plan that

includes taking aim at overly

restrictive council planning rules

which are sometimes confusing

and arbitrary, and limit the

numbers and types of houses we

can build.

These measures support increased

urban density which will

enable more houses to be built in

high demand, highly accessible

areas.

The joint approach of this

initiative, and why we brought

the National Party into our plan

on this was to provide greater

certainty for developers that the

rules would not be removed or

reduced at a later stage.”

Medical mishaps and Maddie’s long,

Maddie Collins has

faced life threatening

kidney problems for 14

years, often hitting the

headlines in the quest

for the right donor. Now

18, Maddie is facing

a new battle. Tina

Grumball reports

TWELVE MONTHS ago,

Maddie Collins was in

Christchurch Hospital to have a

peritoneal dialysis catheter tube

removed so she could continue

dialysis at home.

It was another step to keep her

alive on her long journey to find

the right kidney.

But, like the years of disappointment

over finding it, the

straight-forward procedure left

Maddie ravaged by infection.

During the procedure, plastic

tubing was left inside of her, an

oversight that stalled her transplant

process.

Since then, Maddie has been

rushed to hospital twice to remove

the pieces.

This week, The Star caught up

with Maddie and her mother,

Sarah Manson, at their West

Melton home.

“In hindsight, none of this

should have happened if they’d

removed the piece of plastic at

the very beginning,” Manson

said of the affliction Maddie

suffered for months.

In September last year, after

about five weeks of antibiotics

that did not work, Maddie was

ready for surgery to remove the

infected PD cuff.

“So they booked her in, she’d

had her sedation, she was about

to be wheeled into theatre and a

young vascular-registrar came

in and said ‘nope, she can’t go to

theatre’.”

Maddie was sent home with

more antibiotics, but returned

weeks later and was rushed into

surgery to remove it.

Fast-forward to April this

year and Maddie was once

again rushed to hospital with

a bulge sticking out of her

stomach.

After a CT scan, it was

discovered they had left another

piece of plastic which was

“sitting in a ball of pus”.

Once removed, they were

not able to sew her up, leaving

a “gaping open wound” in her

abdomen because there was so

much pus and infection.

After surgery in April, Manson

said they left the hospital

so Maddie could be more

comfortable at home, but had to

drive back to hospital every two

days for “weeks on end.”

Both infections left Maddie

feeling anaemic and “really

unwell,” her mother said.

In April, “she ended

up needing to have blood

transfusions which was

frustrating because when you

have a blood transfusion, it

introduces new antibodies into

your system, and antibodies

when you want a transplant

are a big deal,” Manson recalled.

Maddie was diagnosed with

nephrotic syndrome, kidney

disease, in 2008, but, after she

did not respond to the typical

treatment, her kidneys had to

be removed so she could get

new ones.

ongoing search for a suitable kidney

In 2012, she had her first

transplant from her father Adam,

but her body rejected it.

It also rejected the “miracle”

kidney she was given in 2018,

which left her with no kidneys

after it was removed in 2020.

Manson has been Maddie’s

full-time carer, as her other

daughter, Georgia, has started

nursing training.

The hospital did file a medical

misadventure,” Manson said.

However, she said she had

to chase up the hospital to file

the claim, then ACC had to

work through their process of

accepting it “which took weeks

and plenty of emails from us”.

When it was accepted in May,

ACC cited the treatment injury

– replacing the classification of

medical misadventure – as an

“infected retained foreign body

of a peritoneal dialysis catheter

cuff”.

A Te Whatu Ora Waitaha

Canterbury spokesperson said “a

treatment injury claim is a claim

to ACC to cover an injury caused

[to] a patient by treatment from a

Registered Health Professional.

“In the event of a suspected

treatment-related injury, our

approach is to assist the patient

to access the support they are

entitled to.”

Manson said she was left on

her own to manage the open

wound, Maddie’s sickness and

her hemodialysis, until the

claim enabled some payment for

rehabilitation, help hours and

travel costs.

“Her quality of life has been

really quite limited, and . . .

looking back, all of that lethargia

and tiredness was just all this

infection building up which

they’d missed,” Manson said.

For Manson, keeping Maddie’s

mental and physical well-being

high was “top priority,” as well

as making sure she could

access as much normalcy as

possible.

“It’s hard right now because

all of her mates are going off to

university, working, travelling

overseas and she’s stuck to this

machine every 48 hours to stay

alive.”

They are currently in the

process of getting Maddie ready

to be presented to the transplant

committee again.

“From there, we’ll know

whether or not they’re going to

offer her another transplant or

if that’s a life on hemodialysis.”

GOOD DAYS: Maddie hopes to compete in dressage

competitions nationally, when the family finishes building

a portable hemodialysis unit in the back of an old truck.

Right – in 2018.

Maddie’s continued search for a

kidney comes as a game-changing

discovery in kidney transplant

research was announced by

Cambridge University.

Since people with different

blood types cannot donate to

each other, researchers there

were successful in changing three

donor kidney’s blood types to the

universal O.

Their accomplishment could

have a significant impact on the

amount of kidneys available for

those in need.

On her good days, you can

find Maddie outdoors, with her

friends, or riding her ponies.

She has just been selected to

attend the Dressage NZ young

dressage rider camp and hopes to

compete nationally.

“It’s really good for her to have

something that is not medical,

something that when she puts

on her dressage jacket, nobody

knows that she’s got no kidneys . .

. she’s just Madeline riding.”

ACC did not reply in time for

deadline.

• By Nikki Preston

A BUNGALOW in need

of serious renovation or

demolishing has sold under

the hammer for $235,000 after

competitive bidding as house

prices in the Canterbury region

continue to hold their own.

The number of Canterbury

sales in July fell 29 per cent and

took seven days longer to sell

compared to the same time last

year as people took advantage of

the school holidays and flocked

to the sun or the snow.

But in spite of fewer sales, the

region’s house prices remained

steady with a median sales price

of $678,000 – up 13.6 per cent

year-on-year, according to the

latest Real Estate Institute of

New Zealand figures released

this week.

Christchurch’s median sales

price in July was $660,000, up 10

per cent year-on-year but down

5.7% compared with the month

prior. There were 432 sales in the

Garden City, a 35 per cent drop

on the same time last year.

The original 1920s house on

Sinclair St, New Brighton, attracted

14 bids from five bidders

last week as properties with

realistic owners continued to sell

well.

The home was marketed as not

being for the “faint-hearted” and

needed “a little imagination, a lot

of paint and a fair bit of work”

or, according to the ad, the new

buyer could demolish the twobedroom

house

with a study and

build their dream

home on the

693sqm section.

Bayleys

Christchurch

Barbara

Johnston

salesperson Barbara

Johnston,

who marketed

the property, said the neglected

house hadn’t had any EQC

repairs carried out on it, but had

attracted interest from investors

in Auckland and Wellington as

well as renovators because it was

affordable.

The new owner was a local

builder who rented on the same

street and planned to do it up to

live in.

One of the reasons Christchurch

hadn’t seen a big drop

in prices like other areas was

because it was more affordable,

Johnston said.

“Some people are starting

to see Christchurch as a little

gem, some people have said. It’s

a secret. We’ve got a lovely city

centre and things are developing

really beautiful now and I think

people are seeing that and it’s

becoming more attractive.”

She was also marketing a 1950s

four-bedroom, two-bathroom

house at 15 Milnebank Rd in Upper

Riccarton, which had been in

the same family for 50 years and

expected it to be snapped up as

a student rental due to its close

proximity to the university.

“As is, where is” properties

with earthquake damage were

continuing to be popular with

two more also selling under the

hammer at Harcourts Grenadier’s

auctions.

A house on Silvester St in

Woolston sold for $568,000 to

a developer and another on Mt

Pleasant Rd with sweeping views

sold for $487,000.

Harcourts Grenadier managing

director Andy Freeman said

there was usually a lot of interest

in these properties because they

were usually a whole lot cheaper

and some of the damaged

properties still got similar rental

income to those that weren’t.

The damage to the property

could vary from needing to be

written-off, while others could be

easily repaired, he said.

There’s still a lot of them out

there. To be fair, a lot of them

haven’t been repaired.”

Last month a two-bedroom

earthquake-damaged house on

Celia St in Redcliffs exceeded

both vendor and agent

expectations after selling in an

intense auction for $562,000 –

more than $70,000 above RV.

for 235k after competitive bidding

A total of 13 of the 15 properties

sold at Harcourts Grenadier’s

auction this week, and all were

under $900,000. The cheapest

property was a unit on Burdale

St in Riccarton that went for

$380,000 and the most expensive

was on Gammack Drive in

Halswell, fetching $832,000.

Christchurch

general manager

of sales Rachel

Dovey said

houses were still

selling well at

Rachel

Dovey

auction and the

agency had a 60

per cent auction

success rate in

July, which was only 20 per cent

less than when the market was at

its peak.

Dovey said the auction process

was “helping line-up buyers” and

even if they didn’t sell on the day

the majority of properties were

attracting multiple offers and

selling within two weeks of being

called.

A four-bedroom, one-bathroom

house on Ashbourne St in

Burnside had no bidders at auction

and sold within two weeks

after being listed for $749,000

and receiving three offers.

A three-bedroom, twobathroom

home on Balgay St in

Upper Riccarton also passed in

at auction sold within two weeks

home (right) at Milnebank St, in Upper Riccarton, goes to auction on September 1. PHOTOS: NZ HERALD

after getting four offers.

“I think the vendors are motivated,

I think the people coming

to market are listening and are

ending up getting a reasonable

result. I don’t think there’s too

much stock where people are

holding out for dream prices,

I think people are realistic and

those deals are coming together.”

House prices were holding

their own, Dovey said, and they

had not seen the “extreme drops”

like other regions. The only major

shift had been the length of days

it took to sell a property moving

from 35 days, which was seven

days longer than last July. The

number of properties selling was

also significantly down.

“July was terrible. If people

weren’t in Fiji they were in

Queenstown. No one was

around, it was the school

holidays, it was miserable and the

borders were open so quite a shift

in mentality there. But days to

sell were down seven days – that’s

a real stretch out – but look on

Facebook if people aren’t in the

snow they are in the snow.”

Properties were also still selling

well at Harcourts Gold’s at

auctions this week with six of

the nine properties getting new

owners.

A four-bedroom, two-bathroom

home on a 1464sqm section

on Wairakei Rd in Bryndwr sold

for $1.591m after 40 bids from

two buyers.

There were also three buyers

competing for a property on

Derby St in St Albans and on

Chilcombe St in Fendalton.

The Fendalton

house sold under

the hammer for

$1.442m.

Najib Real

Estate managing

director Nathan

Najib said while

Nathan

Najib

the market has

slowed down

across the board,

they were still seeing strong

demand for luxury homes, especially

from out-of-towners.

“We still have some national

buyers who were cashed up

last year or the start of this

year and are moving down to

Christchurch.”

He said in the last two years

both ex-pats and people from

mainly Auckland, Wellington

and Nelson had been moving

down and taking advantage of

the cheaper market.

Najib recently sold a property

to a Wellington couple who had

sold their Wellington house for

more than $3m and bought a

380sqm house on a 3000sqm section

in West Melton for $2.175m.

“For $2.175m you can get one

of the nicest houses in Christchurch.”

Not only had they bought a

better house, but they had also

got a better lifestyle and still had

$1.5m in the bank, he said.

Candidate’s campaign leaflet a copy?

• By Chris Barclay

IMITATION IS not necessarily

the sincerest form of flattery.

Burwood Ward candidate Kelly

Barber has been criticised for

orchestrating a copycat advertising

campaign, replicating the

message used successfully

by a rival in last year’s

Coastal Ward by-election.

Barber’s campaign leaflet

is undeniably similar

in tone and presentation

to literature distributed

by Celeste Donovan, a

clear winner of October’s

poll to succeed James

Daniels, who stood down

part way through his

term.

Barber finished a distant fifth

behind Donovan when he stood

under the Labour banner. He is

now focused on his home ward

as an independent aligned to

mayoral candidate and outgoing

Burwood representative Phil

Mauger.

A Burwood resident emailed

The Star pointing out the common

threads between the leaflet

Donovan used for the by-election

and Barber’s version for the local

government election.

“It looks like Kelly has just copied

it for his own letterbox drop,

it is a pretty lazy way of creativity,”

the resident wrote.

Donovan was initially relaxed

when realising Barber’s messaging

struck a chord.

“I did notice it was so similar,

it was almost a carbon copy,”

said Donovan, who is yet to do

a leaflet drop for her re-election

campaign.

“He had been quite complimentary

of my campaign

last year and he seemed

particularly enamoured

with my leaflet.

“I had a feeling he might

use it for inspiration, but

I didn’t realise it would be

Kelly quite so similar.”

Barber Side by side the leaflets

display the same core values,

from the opening paragraph.

Donovan: Kia Ora, I’m Celeste

Donovan and I’m running to be

your councillor.

Barber: Kia Ora, I’m Kelly Barber

and I’m running to be your

Independent City Councillor for

Burwood.

The parallels continue, with

Donovan declaring: It’s time for

a fresh start; Barber agrees: “It’s

time for change in our city!

Barber also shares Donovan’s

attributes. Where she highlights:

‘Engaged’ ‘Committed’ and ‘Take

Action’ Barber has bolded: ‘I’m

Engaged’ ‘I’m Committed’ and ‘I

Take Action’.

Author Bishop takes fifth

young adult book award

‘I was initially

flattered’

THE AUTHOR of a book

described as a taonga for this

generation and the next has

taken out the Margaret Mahy

Book of the Year award for the

fifth time.

Gavin Bishop’s book Atua:

Māori Gods and Heroes

was praised for its sense of

magic and the way it validates

mātauranga and te ao Māori

truths at the New Zealand Book

Awards for Children and Young

Adults.

Christchurch-based Bishop

has now been awarded the

supreme prize more times than

any other children’s author or

illustrator - even the award’s

namesake Margaret Mahy, who

won it twice.

Atua also won the Elsie Locke

Award for Non-Fiction and

the Russell Clark Award for Illustration.

Judge convener Pauline

(Vaeluaga) Smith said Atua is

an instant classic and a “must

have” for every New Zealand

household and library.

The book is much more than

a list of gods and legendary

heroes – it’s a family tree, presented

with power and simplicity,”

she said.

SUCCESS: Gavin Bishop and his new book Atua: Māori

Gods and Heroes.

PHOTO: RNZ

The text is never overstated,

with the glory of the illustrations

as the primary mode of

storytelling, rewarding the

reader who closely examines

them.”

Bishop was born in Invercargill,

but moved to Christchurch

to study at the Canterbury

University School of Fine Arts

and graduated with an honours

degree in painting in 1976.

He then became an art

teacher at Te Aratai College,

formerly Linwood College,

before moving to Christ’s College,

when another art teacher

suggested he write a book for

children.

This year’s awards, governed

by the New Zealand Book

Awards Trust Te Ohu Tiaki i Te

Rau Hiringa, attracted a recordbreaking

199 entries with 28

titles announced as finalists.

• From page 10

While Donovan originally had

no issue with Barber’s tactic, her

stance changed yesterday when

noticing his flyer was shared on

social media platforms.

“I was initially flattered but the

flip side is there is a cost for the

design and preparation of these

leaflets and quite a bit of work

goes into writing content and

developing a unique style/design

for my campaign,” she said.

“So it’s disappointing as I put

a lot of time, energy and money

into providing a clear view on

what I stand for.

“Now that Kelly is widely promoting

his leaflet as representing

his own views and effort, maybe

Kelly could publicly acknowledge

he did base his design material

on mine so at least people know it

wasn’t the other way around.

“Perhaps he might want to look

at what he stands for rather than

relying on where other people

are coming from. Being his own

man, I guess,” said Donovan,

who added she would not seek a

contribution towards her costs.

“I’m not looking for financial

reimbursement, more recognition

for his ‘inspiration’,” she said.

Barber, meanwhile, was

Celeste Donovan

unrepentant.

“I’m certainly capable of

my own thoughts and no one

has a mortgage on the English

language,” he said.

“I don’t see what difference it

makes. At the end of the day the

statements are true and I’m sure

those words have been used in

many different flyers. I don’t see

what the issue is.

“That’s one of the things we do,

we look at material and look for

good ways to express our ideas,”

he said.

“It’s petty, to put it mildly. I’m

not running against her so I don’t

know why she’d be concerned. I

think she’s playing politics and I

don’t want to play.”

Nurse Maude building a new Hospice

for the people of Canterbury

Every day of every year Nurse Maude provides specialist

palliative care and support free of charge to patients and

their families.

“And now we need to build a new Hospice,” says Sue Sutherland

of Nurse Maude, who is managing the fundraising to make

it possible.

“For the past 14 years the Nurse Maude Hospice has operated

out of the ground floor of the old Nurse Maude Hospital, and,

while the quality of care remains exceptional, it was never

designed, or intended, for end-of-life care,” says Sutherland.

The new hospice, with dedicated areas for children and ensuite

rooms with garden views will also include family areas to eat and

have a break and a place where family pets are welcome to visit.

The cost of building a new hospice is around $10 million,” says

Sutherland, “and thanks to some incredibly generous donors

we are already halfway there.”

With $5 million already raised Sutherland is asking the wider

community for its support.

“Nurse Maude has always been about people, not profit,”

says Sutherland, “with every dollar donated going directly

into providing end of life care and support to our patients and

their families.”

“Nurse Maude has been committed to providing care to the

people of Canterbury for more than 125 years and now we

need help to get the new hospice built,” says Sutherland.

Donations to make the new Nurse Maude Hospice a reality

can be made online at nursemaude.org.nz or by emailing

newhospice@nursemaude.org.nz for its bank account details

or more information.

“Your support can make this happen,” says Sutherland, “and

in doing so, you are the person who has made a direct and

significant contribution to our patients and their families at

the time they most need it.”

Nuclear research becomes personal

• By Tina Grumball

FOR OLIVIA Shimasaki, her

research into those affected by

nuclear weapons and testing

uncovered a personal twist.

Her grandmother was nineyears-old

in 1945 when atomic

bombs were dropped on Japan,

first on Hiroshima on August

6 and then Nagasaki three days

later.

Living in a village about

three hours north of Tokyo,

Shimasaki said her grandmother

remembered the bombings

and the “shock to the nation”

they caused.

Between 60,000 and

80,000 people were killed

immediately in Hiroshima,

and more than 70,000 were

killed in the subsequent

bombing of Nagasaki.

“I think it would have

been something people all

over Japan felt a connection

to as it happened to their

citizens and country,”

Shimasaki said.

“I’ve been studying specifically

oral histories associated with

experiences of nuclear weapons

and testing and exposure to

radiation for the past seven years

now.”

To further her research,

she has been picked for an

internship opportunity with the

International Atomic Energy

Agency.

There were seven women

globally picked for the

programme that focuses on

getting women into the nuclear

field.

Shimasaki is the first from

New Zealand.

Shimasaki lives and works in

Christchurch as a part-time

youth programmes coordinator

for The Peace

Foundation, and a youth

and young adults officer

for the Society of St

Seventy-Five years on: an ethnographic exploration of oral histories of the

atomic bombing of Hiroshima. It is open on the photo of the green shirt.

Vincent De Paul.

Her interest in the area began

during a university lecture.

“This individual came in and

showed a video on the effects of

nuclear weapons in the Pacific,”

she recalled.

“It was really heavily oral

history-based, looking at

individuals who are impacted.”

That lecture made her question

why she had never heard about it

and what she could do for those

affected.

“So I went off and I did a lot

more research.”

Shimasaki was granted a

scholarship by the Peace and

Disarmament Education

fund to travel to Japan and

interview Hibakusha, who are

“people affected by nuclear

bombs, atomic bombs and

radiation.”

“I got to talk with

these people, around my

grandparents’ age, and hear

their oral histories and share

those with the world,” she said.

What drove her was trying

to get their stories out there

and show others the lasting

effects, and what others

can do to support those

already exposed.

She also

interviewed two

nuclear test

veterans in New

Zealand, including

Roy Sefton and the

wife of an atomic

bomb tester.

“All of the oral histories in

my thesis I feel are so impactful

which is why I’m going to do

this internship and going to

learn more, and hopefully

speak out for peace because they

all have something to contribute

to the nuclear discussion,” she

said.

The internship itself is between

three months to a year at the

IAEA, and Shimasaki has been

placed in the Department of

Safeguards.

The department focused on

education and making sure

nuclear materials are being used

in the right way.

A few years ago, she was one

of 100 women globally to receive

the IAEA Marie Sklodowska-

Curie fellowship and through

that she was contacted and

offered the internship to

continue the research she had

done.

“I just hope that we can

continue to speak out for peace

and we take the time to listen

to these people’s stories so that

we can learn from the past,”

Shimasaki said.

“I guess the threat of nuclear

warfare isn’t new, but the ways

that we can address it have

changed.”

While every story stuck with

her, Shimasaki said one that

stuck out was about a green

shirt; “it seems like the most

simple thing if you saw it.”

‘Powerful, sad stories need to be heard’

• From page 17

“I’d seen [the green shirt] in

the War Memorial Museum

when I’d visited . . . I thought it

was such a sad, touching story

that it was the only item left that

this family had in remembrance

of their daughter; they had

nothing else.

The following day, I spoke

with one of my interviewees

and it actually turned out that

that was one of his sisters’ shirt

and they only found it decades

later in their mother’s drawer,

wrapped up really preciously,

and they had no idea that she’d

kept that from their sister, and

that she’d held onto that trauma

and that loss, up into her old

age.”

There’s really so many

powerful, sad stories that I

think just need to be heard,” she

said.

Shimasaki noted that all of

the people she spoke to “have

made a conscious decision to

speak out for peace.”

She recalled a man she

spoke to that had only attended

the Hiroshima Memorial

Museum decades after he was

exposed to radiation in the

atomic bombing.

Now retired, it was after

reading that hundreds of people

in the same year at school as

him had died that he felt an

“obligation, in a way, to speak

out for those people that had

died because they couldn’t do it

themselves.”

“[What’s] really inspirational

is these people, after all these

years, are still choosing to

[speak for peace] and wanting

to spread peace so that they

know no one ever has to go

through that again,” she said.

Shimasaki leaves for the

internship, in Austria, in

September and is excited to

go.

“I think it’s going to be a

very exciting challenge and

a big change for me, but it’s

something I’m really looking

forward to going and doing.”

Hiroshima after the August

6, 1945, nuclear bombing.

Disney internship a dream come true

• By Natalie Pham

INTERNING AT Disney World

is a dream for many young

people.

It’s no exception for 18-yearold

Madison Haswell, of

Burwood, who has landed her

six-month coveted internship at

Disney World in Florida.

She was among the top 15

students selected from a pool of

more than 100 applicants in New

Zealand.

“I have always wanted to get a

role in Disney, ever since I was a

little girl,” Haswell said.

The competitive internship

programme required filling

out an online application and

submitting a resume. Only 30

students were selected for a

face-to-face interview with the

Disney recruitment team.

Having worked part-time in

customer service roles for more

than two years, Haswell sailed

through the interview.

“I didn’t find the interview

difficult,” she said. “I was being

myself the whole interview.”

All Haswell knows so far is

that she will start with a position

in the attractions department,

which fits right in with her love

of customer service.

“I like interacting with people

and getting to know them,” she

said.

“By going to Disney, I would

get a chance to learn different

cultures. On top of that, I

hope people could learn

more about New

Zealand too!”

Her bubbly

and outgoing

personality also

landed her an

internship

with The Edge

radio station

in year 11.

Unfortunately, it was cancelled

due to Covid-19.

But it was during that

time Haswell realised

high school was not

for her.

“I entered high

school like any

normal [person],”

she recalled, “but

then I knew that I

wanted to pursue

other things that I

am passionate for.”

Haswell left school

a year later.

“Looking back

I don’t have any

regret,” she

said.

THRILLED: Maddison Haswell described the Disney

internship as ‘a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity’.

THRIVING: Haswell (third from right) with her NZST

classmates. She will spend six months at Disney World,

Florida (below). PHOTO: BARBARA ANN SPENGLER

“I think at the time, I was

stuck at what I wanted to do

until I heard about tourism

school.”

She then enrolled in the New

Zealand School of Tourism,

where she quickly found herself

leaning towards travel and

tourism roles.

“Without the school’s support,

I don’t think I would have ever

got this internship,” she said.

Haswell is scheduled to leave

for the US next month.

Three Waters not the best way forward

I FULLY agree with Gerry

Brownlee where Three Waters is

concerned (The Star, August 11).

The “ownership” councils will

supposedly still have under

it conforms to no legal definition

of ownership, and Three Waters

is pure theft. It’s all part of the

New World Order, to which

Jacinda has committed New

Zealand. This Government needs

to be voted out, but National is

likely to be just as bad. I fear for

the future of New Zealand with

our current batch of politicians.

-Michael J. Brathwaite,

Spreydon

It is not often that National

list MP Gerry Brownlee and I

are on the same page. As far as I

am concerned, he is right on the

nail concerning Christchurch

flooding woes and the new water

authority.

Thank you Mr Brownlee.

Housing

intensification

The article (July 28) about

the expansion of the so-called

affordable housing in the

suburbs, and the kick-back by

Tony Simons from the Riccarton

Bush - Kilmarnock Residents’

Association is long overdue.

The developments are being

pushed by Labour, National

RESPONSE: National List MP Gerry Brownlee’s take on Three Waters last week resonated,

as did a tribute to the late John Butcher, who recently died of Covid-19.

and the Greens. Residents need

to wake and smell the coffee

made by the globalist United

Nations Agenda 2030 with its

euphemistic 17 “sustainable

development goals and the 169

targets”.

National’s Jim Bolger signed

us all up to it in 1992 at Rio de

Janeiro, yet it is non-binding.

Central government acts as

though it is binding and the

Christchurch [City] Council

then claim that their hands are

tied and they have to implement

this hideous “smart city” plan.

-Peter F Coleman,

Barrington

John Butcher

Your excellent article on the

late John Butcher highlighted the

wonderful talents and achievements

of this quiet achiever.

One of the areas not mentioned

in the article was the role

that John had played in the role

of darts. He was heavily involved

in the local and national scene

for Clubs NZ Darts.

On the local scene, John played

for the Christchurch Working

Men’s Club in the Christchurch

inter-club competition and had

a great influence in the administration

of the Christchurch

Working Men’s Club Darts Association

(now called Canterbury

Combined Chartered Clubs

Darts Association).

He was a major influence in

the establishment of the first

inter-club South Island tournament

and the first New Zealand

tournament and formation of

what is currently known as the

Clubs NZ Darts Association

(initially the NZ Working Men’s

Clubs Darts Association).

He held the role of secretary

to this organisation from its

formation in 1968 until retiring

around 1980. Additionally he

organised the first overseas tour

for the representative team to

Australia in 1975, arranging all

the travel and accommodation.

Upon his retirement from

CNZDA he was awarded a

life membership, which at the

time was carried by standing

acclamation. This self-effusing

man was completely overcome

by this award even though it was

thoroughly deserved and never

in doubt.

John was deeply respected

and admired by all of these

associations and his passing

is the passing of a legend. For

me personally, I admired and

respected him and his work for

us.

President

Back

for 2022!

25 PRIVATE GARDENS,

HISTORIC HOMESTEADS,

ART & COLLECTIONS!

9am-5pm daily

Find out more at

hurunuigardenfestival.com

The Hurunui Garden Festival returns in October

for the fifth celebration of inspirational

gardens, coupled with the hospitality of

their owners, and the people of the Hurunui

district. There is a bounty of gardens on offer

to admire and inspire, with some properties

also hosting events.

The festival runs from Thursday, October 27

to Sunday, October 30, and will showcase 25

private gardens, each of which will open from

9am to 5pm each day.

Some favourites return, and new ones have

come on board, to host visitors keen to enjoy

gardens from Amberley, Hawarden, Waikari

and Hanmer Springs to Gore Bay, Greta Valley,

Scargill, Culverden and Rotherham.

They are arranged in six geographically-based

clusters making it easy to plan visits to multiple

gardens. Each cluster has its own detailed map

in the guide which can be printed from the

website hurunuigardenfestival.com.

This shows the exact locations of the gardens,

along with other useful information, such as

the location of public toilets, fuel stations and

food outlets.

Owners have been hard at work maintaining

their gardens, despite Mother Nature sending

rain, hail, snow, gales and frosts to thwart

their preparation.

Gardening guru, Lynda Hallinan, who is also

an author, broadcaster, journalist, parttime

farmer, parent and plantaholic, will be

attending the festival. The former editor of

the New Zealand Gardener magazine will join

the festival for a speaking and dinner event

designed to educate, entertain and inspire.

To book tickets to the Italian dinner at the

Hanmer Springs Hotel on Friday, October 28 at

7pm, go to hurunuigardenfestival.com.

Julie Atkinson-Dunn, from the home and

garden website Studiohome.co.nz and author

of Petal Power and Flowers for Friends, will

host a series of free talks at the owners of

three inspiring gardens in this year’s festival.

Also on offer is a showcase of local artists

works, sculpture, a photography exhibition,

garden furniture, gardening/outdoor

products, plants indoor and outdoor, gift ware,

prints, easy listening jazz and even a Christmas

Grotto.

A Fossils and Concretions tour, where visitors

can discover the history and uniqueness of the

Waipara River, is a guided tour with geologist

Dr Kate Pedley.

It runs from 12.30pm, Saturday, October

29, and Sunday October 30. For bookings

and more information refer to facebook.

com/Karetudowns, or contact karen@

karetudowns.co.nz. There is also tours of

some homesteads.

The event has become popular, with many

visitors making it a long weekend so they can

enjoy as many gardens as possible, along with

the many attractions the district has on offer.

♦ It costs $10 to visit each property, payable

on the day as you enter. School aged children,

accompanied by an adult, are free. Please

have cash available.

The website shop - hurunuigardenfestival.com

- is open for on line ticket sales until August

31. Some gardens may have an extra charge

for events which can be accessed in the guide.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

New solution for a

better nights sleep and

improved health!

Deep regenerative sleep is so important

to feeling and performing our best. A

lack of or poor quality sleep is associated

with increased risk for many chronic

diseases, including obesity, type 2 diabetes,

heart disease, depression, and many

more. Unfortunately many adults report

occasional bouts of insomnia with one in

three saying they suffer from sleeplessness

or disturbed sleep on a more chronic

basis, to the point that it regularly impairs

daytime functioning.

The good news is an inexpensive,

naturally occurring amino acid known as

glycine has been clinically researched in

Japan and shown to be highly beneficial

in supporting healthy sleep. Subjects who

were given three grams of glycine one hour

before bedtime fell asleep much sooner,

as well as exhibited brainwave patterns

associated with deep sleep compared to

control subjects who did not supplement.

On waking the subjects who took the

glycine woke reporting being refreshed

with no indication that glycine produced a

“morning hangover” or any foggy feeling

common with those who use prescription

sleeping medication.

Glycine is known to accumulate in the

pineal gland and is believed to play and

important role in “disconnecting” the

brain from the body during REM (rapid

eye movement) sleep cycles. Glycine

also supports healthy growth hormone

(GH) secretion that is associated with

strength, good health and vitality whereas

low secretion of GH is associated with

advanced ageing and increased disease.

Other clinical research has shown glycine

supplementation to improve memory and

attention in young to older adults.

Spanish researchers have studied the

effect of glycine supplementation in 600

subjects between the ages of 4 and 85 years

suffering from osteoarthritis, osteoporosis

or physical injuries. Participants were

given 5 grams of glycine in the morning

and 5 grams in the evening. In all cases

symptoms significantly improved.

Glycine is a very safe amino acid that

appears to be highly beneficial for a quality

sleep as well as general good health.

NOW supplements only use a natural

pharmaceutical grade, free form glycine

that is also suitable for vegetarians

and vegans. NOW operate one of the

most advanced private laboratories and

production facilities in the natural products

industry. They promise they take every

possible step to ensure the safety and

efficacy of every product they produce. At

Marshall’s we know you are buying the best

products available anywhere when you buy

the NOW brand.

Glycine and further information

is available from the natural health

specialists at Marshall’s Health &

Natural Therapy, 101 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, Ph: 388-5757. We are always

happy to help!

NEED A BETTER

NIGHTS SLEEP?

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

term poor quality sleep is associated with many chronic diseases

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

found a naturally occurring amino acid known as glycine may

restore a good night’s sleep. Japanese researchers found

patients taking glycine fell asleep much sooner and exhibited

brainwave patterns associated with deep sleep. On waking

the patients woke refreshed, clear minded and energetic.

Glycine supports:

• Restful deep sleep

• Going to sleep quickly

• Staying asleep

• Waking refreshed and clear

minded

• Nervous system support, has

a calming effect reducing

anxiety and panic attacks

• Improved memory, attention

and mental function

OPINION

MODEL: The competitive public transport tendering system that forced

the selling of Red Bus is coming to an end.

New framework for

transportation great

news for the city

I DON’T know how many

times I have written an

opinion piece about the

need for us to have a fully

integrated public and

active transport system,

but finally this week the

Minister of Transport

announced the operating

model that has been the

barrier to achieving this is

to go.

The Star readers may

recall that I have worked

hard to get successive

governments to address

this issue over several

years. It takes so long!

Even getting a simple

law change to allow the

regional council to transfer

its role in public transport

to councils took until

2019.

However, there was

no point transferring a

broken model; it needed

to be fixed first, and that’s

what this announcement

signals.

The Public Transport

Operating Model is

coming to an end, and

with it the competitive

tendering system. This

was why we were forced

to sell Red Bus when

we lost all the routes we

tendered for, leaving only

the route that had been

directly negotiated with

Environment Canterbury.

If only we knew at the

time the Government

would announce a

Sustainable Public

Transport Framework

three years later.

However, it means we

should be able to trial new

models of public transport

– electric shuttles that can

be waved down around

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

the CBD; and Mobilityas-a-Service,

with an

app or a dial-up service

connecting people to rapid

transit routes, with smart

technology to prioritise

the movement of public

transport.

These will help make

getting around the city

and commuting easy for

everyone.

This is great news for

our city and even though

it won’t be progressed in

my time as Mayor, I will

always remember this

announcement as a real

turning point in making

Greater Christchurch,

the city of the future

– for people and the

environment.

CANCER RISK PROMPTS DIFFICULT DECISIONS

Testing positive for a high-risk cancer gene forced

some tough decisions on Nicola Coom, but also

ignited a passion for improving the lives of those

impacted by cancer.

Nicola was in her early 30s when her mother was

diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Two other

close female relatives had already died

of the disease. Nicola got tested for

the BRCA (breast cancer) genetic

mutation, which is passed down

through families and associated

with a greatly increased risk of

developing breast and ovarian

cancer.

Nicola says having the

mutant gene threw her many

difficult decisions, such as

whether to have her health

closely monitored or undergo

preventative measures such

having her breasts or ovaries

removed.

At the time, Nicola’s mother was

having treatment for late-stage ovarian

cancer.

“I made the decision pretty quickly to have a double

mastectomy and breast reconstruction using tissue from

my abdomen. Mum was right there in front of me going

through chemo so if I could take steps to avoid that, why

not?” she says.

Very soon after getting the news she had a BRCA

mutation, Nicola began researching the subject and

travelled overseas to hear from international experts.

She discovered a lack of easily digestible information

in New Zealand for those impacted by a genetic predisposition

to cancer, so started a peer-support group

and foundation called Gift of Knowledge.

Just months before her scheduled

mastectomy, Nicola met her now

husband. The possibility she might in

future choose to have her ovaries

removed fast-tracked the fledgling

couple’s family plans. The pair now

have three sons, born within a year

of each other. In 2015, following

the birth of her third son Nicola

had her ovaries removed.

“Your body is forced into

menopause before it is ready and

it is not pleasant, but for me the

positives outweighed the negatives.

I wanted to be around for my family,”

says Nicola. Since then, she has

fostered the growth of Gift of Knowledge

Foundation and worked as the Executive

Director of a national mental health trust.

In July, she took on her ‘dream job’ as Chief Executive of

the Cancer Society Canterbury – West Coast.

“When I got the job it was a ‘pinch me’ moment. It was

an opportunity to use all my professional skills and my

passion for working towards better outcomes for cancer

patients,” she says.

Within weeks of starting the Cancer Society role, Nicola’s

father was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and she was

diagnosed with a basal cell carcinoma on her face which

she has just had removed.

“It is not ideal, but I know that we are just one of many

families receiving this kind of news. It is also a good

reminder that people can live well with cancer. That

is why I am so passionate about the work the Cancer

Society does in supporting people impacted by cancer,”

Nicola says.

The BRCA gene

• All cancer is caused by changes in our genes,

but many occur by chance or with age. Some people,

however, develop cancer or are at a high risk of

developing it because of a genetic susceptibility they

have inherited.

The BRCA gene is an inherited mutation that

significantly increases the chance of developing

breast or ovarian cancer.

• 1 out of every 400-800 people carry a BRCA gene

mutation.

• If you have a strong history of breast or ovarian

cancer, it may be appropriate for your general

practitioner to refer you to the Genetic Service.

• A strong family history may include two or more

close blood relatives on the same side of the family

with breast or ovarian cancer.

· If you are referred to genetic services, they will

discuss and calculate the risk of developing cancer

and may arrange testing for you and your family.

PARTNERSHIP AIMS TO IMPROVE CERVICAL

SCREENING RATES

Pegasus Health and ScreenSouth recently cemented

their commitment to supporting general practice

with their cervical screening work. A Memorandum

of Understanding was signed by Keiran Horne, the

ScreenSouth Board Chairperson, and Mark Liddle,

CEO of Pegasus Health.

“This partnership just makes so much sense.

ScreenSouth is founded on partnership and the

relationship between Pegasus Health and Pacific

Radiology Group,” says Keiran.

Over the past couple of years, cervical screening rates

have fallen as the COVID-19 pandemic saw a shift in

priorities for both GPs and patients.

In the last eight months, cervical screening rates in

Canterbury have dropped from 68% to 66%, far below

Ministry of Health targets of 80%.

ScreenSouth General Manager, Louise McCarthy, notes

that it is a steady downward trend.

“With the impact of COVID, we have seen the equity gap

is widening but we have also seen numbers come down

for women in the total population as well. And that is

not just Waitaha, Canterbury, but across the country,”

she says.

A pilot group of seven Pegasus Health practices has

been selected to receive targeted help from a kaimahi

and support worker to help improve their screening

rates. They were chosen based on the number of priority

group women, cervical screening rates and the rates

for claiming funded screens. These practices were seen

as those that could benefit the most from a targeted

approach.

“It is about our teams working collectively and using

the resources we have, to achieve the best outcomes.

Pegasus are providing the kaimahi, ScreenSouth will

provide the support worker and then we have got data

and health promotion teams that can reach in and

provide support,” says Louise.

Director of Hauora Maori and Equity, Irihapeti Mahuika

shared a whakatauki at the signing that reflects the

importance of this partnership.

Ehara tāku toa i te toa takitahi,

engari he toa takitini

My strength is not as an individual,

but as a collective.

NEW CANTERBURY

CANCER FACILITY

OPENING IN 2023

A new building to house the Cancer Society’s

Christchurch-based patient accommodation and

support services is due to be completed in early 2023.

Chief Executive of the Cancer Society Canterbury – West

Coast, Nicola Coom, says the facility is planned to cater

for those with all cancers. It will have 50 accommodation

rooms and be available for people with cancer

from around the South Island who need to come to

Christchurch Hospital for treatment.

“It’s very exciting to be involved in this project as it is our

aim for it to become a centre of innovation for cancer

support for the people of Canterbury and the South

Island,” she says.

Nicola and the team aim to expand the services offered

from the new centre to include therapeutic cancer

services such as lymphatic drainage massage, counselling

and more.

The facility in Langdons Rd, Papanui will replace its

facilities destroyed by the Christchurch

earthquakes.

Biggest ever recorded

jump in weekly earnings

as median NZ wages rise

A KEY MEASURE of Kiwi wages

and salaries has shot up by its

largest margin since records

started 24 years ago.

Stats NZ data released yesterday

showed median weekly

earnings from wages and salaries

rose 8.8 per cent in the year to

June 30.

In spite of the big increase, a

trade union confederation said

women were still suffering from a

major pay gap.

According to the income survey,

median earnings were now

$1189.

Women’s median weekly earnings

increased by $95 to $1055.

As with the overall jump, that increase

was the highest for women

since the data series started in

1998.

The big rise in median weekly

earnings for women coincided

with more women working fulltime

and fewer part-time, labour

market manager Malak Shafik

said.

Self-employed people had

stagnant incomes, according to

today’s Stats NZ release.

In the year to the June 30,

median weekly income from all

sources increased by $78, or 10.1

per cent.

Median income from wages

and salaries increased by $96, or

8.8 per cent.

Income from government

transfers increased by $31 million,

or 8.3 per cent.

But income for the

self-employed was flat at $767 a

week.

The new wage and income data

comes at a time of high inflation

and low unemployment.

The median wage increase is

even greater than a major recent

inflation indicator.

The Stats NZ quarterly Consumer

Price Index for the three

months to June 30 rose 7.3 per

cent.

That was the highest CPI increase

since 1990.

The Council of Trade Unions

said nowhere near enough progress

had been made closing the

gender pay gap.

Last year the CTU said women

started working effectively for

free on November 22, 2021,

if their lower incomes were

compared to what men earned

annually.

The CTU said this year the data

showed that day only moved to

November 23.

The overall gender pay gap

has stubbornly persisted across

the past decade,” the CTU said

yesterday. – NZ Herald

Flexibility the key to business

at the Air Force Museum

THERE’S A saying in the air

force that flexibility is the key to

air power; this is certainly the

philosophy driving business at

the Air Force Museum of New

Zealand.

Museums are by nature not-forprofit

entities, morally bound to

make their collection and spaces

as freely accessible as possible. In

order to achieve this, however, a

certain flexibility is essential.

Located at the former Wigram

air base, the Air Force Museum

is the national museum for the

Royal New Zealand Air Force. It

is a registered charity, operated

in partnership between the New

Zealand Defence Force and a

board of trustees.

While the defence force covers

operational costs, the board is responsible

for generating sufficient

revenue to ensure our air force’s

history is preserved and shared in

the context of an accessible, world

class visitor attraction.

It’s a model that works. The museum

has been hosting corporate

events in its spaces for most of its

35-year history. This income has

enabled both free admission and

free education programmes, as

well as helping fund collections

care, exhibitions, and other visitor

experiences.

While it is the large events

managed by Venues Ōtautahi –

more than 1100 since 2013 – that

many may associate with the Air

Force Museum, recently they have

begun managing their own small

venue hire business, with spaces

including meeting rooms, a members’

club-style lounge and even a

tiered theatrette.

Again, flexibility is the word,

as any of these spaces can be

adapted to fit a client’s requirements,

whether it be a strategic

planning day, training workshop,

product launch or social gathering.

Catering is available through

the onsite café, and plenty of free

Coach sympathetic after semi-final win

• By Chris Barclay

AS JUBILANT St Bede’s College

1st XV players were enveloped

by fellow students, family and

friends, head coach Daniel

Winchester distanced himself,

and felt for the vanquished.

In stark contrast to the winners

of Christchurch’s Miles Toyota

Championship semi-final, St

Thomas of Canterbury College’s

squad were forlorn in the middle

of their No 1 field.

Having qualified for the competition’s

trophy semi-finals for

the first time, the top seeds were

a win away from hosting defending

champion Nelson College,

who pipped Christchurch Boys’

High School 27-24 earlier last

Saturday.

Instead, they suffered a 20-15

defeat to the team which ended

their play-off aspirations in the

last minute of their final regular

season round clash in 2021.

St Bede’s duly qualified top 12

months ago, but were knocked

out by Christ’s College, who

snuck in fourth.

“We finished

top of the table

last year and

lost our semi.

We were in

their position,

went in hot favourites

and we

Daniel

Winchester

didn’t perform,

didn’t manage

the game.

Rugby’s about learning lessons,”

Winchester said.

“I’ve coached this team for

four years and we’ve lost at this

stage in the last three, so it’s nice

to finally get over the line and

make the final. It’s pretty sweet.”

St Bede’s were well beaten on

their previous visit to St Thomas,

the hosts winning their seasonopener

31-19 in early May, an

experience that fortified the underdogs

for the knockout rounds.

The key for us was around

game management and nullifying

their big threats,” said

Winchester, who was promoted

to head coach last year.

Threat-wise St Thomas No 8

Richie Tuipelehake Tupua’ilei

loomed large but St Bede’s defence

kept him in check.

“Every team tries to stop him

DOWNWARD PRESSURE: St Bede’s College prop Suilasi Faiva reaches out to score in the second half of the Miles Toyota

Championship 1st XV semi-final with St Thomas of Canterbury College. After winning 20-15 St Bede’s now head to the

final at Nelson College.

PHOTOS: CHRIS BARCLAY ​

and he generally scores a try a

game, if not two,” Winchester

said. “Our whole game was to try

and stop him. He didn’t get any

points, which was good for us.”

Although St Bede’s trailed 10-8

at the break, goal-kicking wing

Ben Trillo’s second try broke a

15-all deadlock before tactical

kicking by first five-eighth Flynn

Bainbridge and fullback Cam

Rawlings helped keep St Thomas

at bay.

Winchester sensed his side was

confident at half-time.

“Our boys ran to the huddle

and theirs didn’t. We knew we

were in a really good spot and

once we got some ball and played

some rugby we looked really

sharp,” he said.

“We knew if we let them into

our 22 we’d suffer so it was about

limiting those chances.”

Nelson College beat St Bede’s

22-16 in Christchurch on July 30

but they head north for Saturday’s

final in a confident frame

of mind.

“That was probably one of our

poorest performances, but it was

a really good learning experience,”

Winchester said.

“I don’t think we’d be where

we are now if we didn’t have that

loss. It gives us great insight into

what we’re going to get up there.

It was a good test run for us.”

Like each of the 13 teams chasing

the title St Bede’s will experience

a significant loss of personnel

this year; St Thomas farewell

at least a dozen members of their

squad, hence the devastation at

full-time.

“We’re losing a lot of forwards

… two props, both locks, two

loose forwards plus both halfbacks,

a centre and fullback,”

said Winchester, so motivation

will not be an issue.

“Every year you have those

last-chance Year 13 players. Every

game’s their last game once

they get to knockout football.”

The second-tier plate final will

be contested between Shirley

Boys’ High School and Marlborough

Boys’ College after they

beat St Andrew’s College (38-36)

and Timaru Boys’ High School

(20-10) respectively.

Football

Christchurch United will wrap

up the Southern League with a

round to spare if they can continue

their unbeaten campaign

against closest challengers Cashmere

Technical on Saturday.

United, who lead Cashmere

Technical by three points, have

already outplayed the other

National League-bound outfit,

winning their first outing 4-1 in

late May. The clear front-runners

have already nailed down the

two berths designated for the domestic

competition so Saturday’s

highlight of the round has only

the silverware at stake.

United and Cashmere Technical

both recorded eight-goal

margins last weekend as they

swept Dunedin-based opposition

aside as they warmed up for this

local derby.

The league’s leading goal scorer,

Garbhan Coughlan, netted

five times for Cashmere Technical

as they trounced Mosgiel

AFC 8-0 while Eddie Wilkinson

scored a quartet as United recovered

from a one-goal deficit to

hammer Green Island 9-1.

Cashmere Technical will likely

have to bridge the gap on United

at Garrick Memorial Park given

they both face out of contention

southern opposition - Dunedin

City Royals and Mosgiel AFC

respectively - in the final slate

of fixtures. At the other end of

the table, relegation candidate

Selwyn United lost 3-2 at Dunedin

City Royals, to stay one

point adrift of Mosgiel.

The Rolleston-based club will

be hoping for a result, or at least

a point, from their encounter

with third-ranked Ferrymead

Bays and hope Coastal Spirit can

work in their favour when they

travel to Mosgiel.

Coastal Spirit SAS underscored

their dominance of the

women’s game locally when they

retained the Reta Fitzpatrick Cup

with a 6-0 defeat of Universities

in last Saturday’s final at English

Park.

The reigning Mainland Football

Premier League and inaugural

Southern League champions

retained the women’s equivalent

of the English Cup for a third

successive year..Whitney Hepburn

spearheading this triumph

with a hat-trick.

It was also their 10th Reta

Fitzpatrick Cup final victory

since the trophy replaced the

Knockout Cup in 2005.

Hockey

Carlton Redcliffs and Marist

advanced to their respective

finals of Canterbury Hockey’s

premier league after tight victories

in the open phase of the

postseason.

Top qualifiers Marist were

close to forcing a shootout in the

men’s preliminary final at Nga

Puna Wai but a penalty stroke

after the hooter flashed wide of

the goal, giving Carlton Redcliffs

a 2-1 victory.

Marist now have a second life

to make Saturday’s final when

they take on HSOB/Burnside –

who eliminated Harewood with

a 2-1 victory – in tonight’s major

semi-final at Nga Puna Wai.

In the women’s competition,

Marist edged a shootout after a

goalless clash with Carlton Redcliffs,

who could only convert

one of their five opportunities.

Marist were marginally more

effective against the Carlton

Redcliffs goalkeeper, converting

their first two chances before

also experiencing some anxious

moments.

Carlton Redcliffs, the regular

season Rosebowl winners, must

beat Harewood, 2-1 winners

over HSOB/Burnside to earn

a rematch with Marist, in a

clash which plays out after this

edition’s deadline.

MATCH-WINNER: Linwood wing Penitito Ilalio entered

Canterbury Rugby League premiership grand final folklore with

his championship-winning try in the dying seconds against

Hornby.

CHAMPIONS: The Linwood Keas celebrate their sixth grand final victory in seven

years by avenging last season’s loss to Hornby in the decider.

Smiles after epic league final decider

• By Chris Barclay

PENITITO ILALIO had time to

turn and grin, Linwood’s smiling

assassin delivered the killer blow

to Hornby’s hopes of securing

back-to-back Canterbury Rugby

League premierships in the

dying seconds of an epic grand

final.

The Panthers were tracking

to complete their late season

resurgence in style at Nga Puna

Wai on Sunday when the Keas

wing scythed through Hornby’s

defensive line on halfway before

wrong-footing fullback Muipu

Nati and surging to score under

the crossbar.

Linwood’s sixth premiership

in seven seasons was being

celebrated before potentially

retirement-bound reserve prop

Matthew Molioo had the honour

of slotting the inconsequential

extras to ice a 34-30 triumph.

“In the last five minutes I was

looking at the game, looking

at the clock and it came down

to that last set,” said Linwood’s

third-year head coach Iuma

Mulitalo.

“It was unbelievable. Peni

pulled a rabbit out of the hat.”

Mulitalo said the cliffhanger

brought back memories of the

2018 decider, when prop Alex

Todd scored to pip Hornby in

the last two minutes.

“We went the whole season

undefeated then too and almost

choked in the last game but we

found a way to win. This year’s

is probably the best one, to score

in the final play of the game,” he

said.

Linwood were never beaten in

2022, a regular season draw with

Halswell the only blemish on an

outstanding record.

Hornby led 18-6 at halftime

but Linwood rallied with three

tries in 11 minutes to build a

six-point advantage before the

Panthers struck back through Eti

Collins and Nati.

The Panthers had one hand on

the Pat Smith Trophy until they

could not grab Ilalio, whose try

enabled Linwood to avenge last

season’s grand final defeat to

their long-term rivals.

PROPPING UP: Linwood front rower George Faaiva gets the

Keas on the board with a powerful surge.

Multialo’s counterpart Jed

Lawrie said a tight playing group

had eventually come to terms

with the devastation.

“It’s just a moment we missed,

that’s footy I guess. It’s definitely

tough, but we’ve had a couple of

days together which made it a bit

easier,” he said.

Hornby had needed a massive

win over struggling Papanui

in the final round plus the Linwood/Northern

Bulldogs result

to fall their way to claim the final

play-off berth.

“After the game we had a big

huddle in the shed. We were

at the bottom of the mountain

most of the year and we nearly

climbed to the top,” Lawrie said.

Although Hornby had a handy

lead at the break, they lost influential

veteran Corey Lawrie,

Jed’s brother, to a nasty leg injury

shortly before halftime which

disrupted the bench rotation.

His thigh was sliced open

by a boot sprig was rushed to

Christchurch Hospital, where

the wound required 22 stitches.

“He went to stand up and

collapsed, it was a fair old gash.

Corey was a big loss. He’s a

hooker, loose forward and sort of

the heart and soul of the team,”

Lawrie said.

Corey Lawrie watched the

livestream of the remainder of

the game at hospital and reunited

with the team about 8pm.

another dramatic finish denying

Sydenham a third straight title.

“We won with two minutes

to go. I almost had two heart

attacks in one day,” he said,

reflecting on the women’s 22-20

triumph.

Angela Petero scored the

clincher to complete a remarkable

comeback after they scored

three tries in the final 14 minutes

to overcome a 10-point deficit.

One more sale for Mazda’s CX-30

AS A motoring journalist for

more than 30 years, I’ve long

wanted to write – ‘I loved the car

so much I went out and bought

one.’

That has happened, and my

wife and I are now the proud

owners of a Mazda CX-30 GTX

sport utility vehicle, only the second

time we have bought a brand

new car, the first being way back

in 1982.

Weighing up the CX-30

against other SUVs of a similar

ilk was a lengthy process for us,

we needed to be 100 per cent certain

the Mazda was the right fit.

I wasn’t in much doubt though,

after having driven several since

its introduction here just on two

years ago, the CX-30 had already

made an impression on me with

its quality of build and, in this day

and age of soaring fuel costs, relative

economy.

This evaluation doesn’t focus on

the GTX, but on a newcomer to

the CX-30 range, simply badged

SP20 Blackout. It, as you would

guess, has black wheels, black

grille, black mirror caps, black

cabin theme with red stitching

and other discreet highlights. The

special edition model certainly

adds depth to the line-up and it is

priced rather well at just $44,390.

There are now five CX-30 models,

front-wheel-drive and all-wheeldrive,

and sharing between the

2.5-litre engine and the 2-litre

mild hybrid driveline that is fitted

to the Blackout model.

Let’s get one thing straight,

Mazda’s mild hybrid system

isn’t like the hybrid operation

we know so well in, say, Toyota’s

Prius; Mazda’s battery system

works solely on the energy gained

from braking and deceleration,

that is called regenerative energy

and it is stored to power the

electrical systems and assist the

engine under acceleration.

In terms of the mechanicals to

make this happen, the traditional

alternator and starter motor have

been replaced with an integrated

starter/generator, the benefit of

all of this is taking the load off the

petrol engine, thereby saving fuel

in the process.

It’s not a new system, some

premium brands have been using

regenerative energy for many

years but not so many mainstream

models come with it, and

it is just another way Mazda has

developed its drivelines so that

fuel economy has been a major

manufacturing priority.

During my time with the

Blackout model the combined

cycle fuel usage gauge never went

higher than 8l/100km, and at

100km/h the engine merely sips

fuel at the instantaneous rate

of 5l/100km, the engine turning

over at just 1900rpm at that

speed. Those figures sit well with

Mazda’s figures of 7l/100km on a

Your family’s health is

important during winter,

in particular, as damp cold

houses can have a huge

effect particularly for the

very young, elderly and

those who are ill.

Make sure your home is

warm, ideally between 18

and 21 degrees. Reducing

the draughts in your home

will help as they are a

major way that buildings

can lose heat by up to 25

per cent. Close the curtains

when the sun goes down

and trim any trees that

prevent the sun getting into your home.

Keeping your home dry is also very

important. The average family home can

produce around 12 litres of water a day.

A portable dehumidifier can remove

moisture and ideally should be placed in

the coldest part of your home. Reducing

the amount of moisture helps with people

who are allergic and prevents mould,

moisture and condensation on the

windows.

In-home ventilation systems replace

the damp air inside your homes with

dry, filtered air controlling condensation

and excess moisture. There is plenty of

information online about the different

brands and sizes.

Keep warm and

healthy this winter

making your clothes healthier for you

and your family. If it is raining use a shed

or garage as an alternative.

If you use a clothes dryer, make sure

your clothes are properly spun first and

either vent it outside or leave windows

open.

To reduce moisture caused by steam,

always open a window when you are

showering and when you are cooking on

the stove top. Use pot lids to reduce the

amount of steam escaping. Keep doors to

bedrooms closed at these times as steam

can make beds damp.

Finally insulation can make a huge

difference to keeping your house

warm and save on heating costs. The

Proposed Private Plan Change 11 –

Enable residential development at

254 Fitzgerald Ave, part of

256 Fitzgerald Ave, and 5 Harvey Tce

Private Plan Change 11

This Private Plan Change seeks to enable residential development on

privately owned sites located on the outer edge of the Specific Purpose

(Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor) Zone, at 254 Fitzgerald Ave, part of 256

Fitzgerald Ave, and 5 Harvey Tce. The scope of the plan change is:

• To add 5 Harvey Tce to a list of private properties in Appendix 13.14.6.2

that can continue to be used for pre-earthquake activities according to

the Residential Medium Density Zone rules; and

• To include 254 and a small part of 256 Fitzgerald Ave in the Edge

Housing Area overlay to allow redevelopment according to the

Residential Suburban Density Transition Zone rules; and

• To add a new Edge Housing Area for 254 and part 256 Fitzgerald Ave to

Appendix 13.14.6.1 Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Development Plan; and

• To restrict vehicle access to the sites to Harvey Tce only, and make any

other consequential amendments.

More information

You can view the proposed Plan Change and other associated information

on the Council website at https://www.ccc.govt.nz/plan-change-11 , in

hard copy at the Civic Offices on Hereford Street or at any of the Council’s

service centres and libraries during normal opening hours.

Submissions

Anyone can make a submission on this Plan Change either in writing or

electronically. Online submissions can be made at

https://ccc.govt.nz/the-council/haveyoursay/show/540 or you can

download a form, or collect a hard copy form from Civic Offices, Hereford

Street or from Council service centres and libraries. For details of your

nearest Service centre or library please visit ccc.govt.nz/contact-us or

phone 03 941 8999.

Submissions must be received before 5pm on

Wednesday, 14 September 2022.

Process for public participation

Once all submissions have been received, they will be made publicly

available. Further submissions will then be invited, allowing certain

persons and organisations to support or oppose any of the initial

submissions.

A hearing will then be held to consider all submissions, and a decision will

be made following this hearing. Anyone who has made a submission has

the right to appeal the decision to the Environment Court.

This Plan Change will have no legal effect until the Council gives

public notice of its decision on the plan change and matters raised in

submissions (under Section 9 and Clause 10(5) of the First Schedule of the

Resource Management Act).
