Bins, charity boxes part of<br />

rubbish system review<br />

KERBSIDE BIN sizes and<br />

issues caused by dumping<br />

rubbish outside of charity boxes<br />

are under review.<br />

Consultation opened this<br />

week on the proposed Draft<br />

Waste Management and<br />

Minimisation Bylaw 2<strong>02</strong>3<br />

bylaw, which allows regulation<br />

of all waste collection services<br />

and operations.<br />

Currently the city council<br />

has two waste bylaws – the<br />

Waste Management Bylaw 2009<br />

and the Cleanfill and Waste<br />

Handling Operations Bylaw<br />

2015.<br />

manager Ross Trotter said the<br />

current bylaws were legally due<br />

for review in 2<strong>02</strong>5.<br />

“However, we decided to<br />

review them sooner to ensure<br />

they remain fit for purpose.<br />

Following the review we<br />

proposed new one,” he said.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> new bylaw is consistent<br />

with recent changes to<br />

regulations under the Waste<br />

Minimisation Act and our<br />

climate resilience strategy. It<br />

including the goal to move<br />

towards zero waste.”<br />

Trotter said the proposed<br />

changes will provide greater<br />

flexibility. “Some of the<br />

City council resource recovery<br />

decided to replace the two<br />

existing bylaws with the<br />

will also assist in achieving<br />

our Waste Management and<br />

Minimisation Plan 2<strong>02</strong>0,<br />

proposed changes wil legally<br />

enable us to adapt our services<br />

easier in the future.”<br />

STOPPED: An armed<br />

cordon similar to this one,<br />

set up after the arrest of<br />

the March 15 terrorist,<br />

resulted in the arrest of a<br />

man with $160,000 worth<br />

of methamphetamine and<br />

more than $100,000 cash.<br />

PHOTOS: RNZ, GETTY<br />

• By Sam Sherwood<br />

WHEN YOU have $160,000 of<br />

methamphetamine, $108,860<br />

in cash and a sawn-off rifle in<br />

your car the last thing you want<br />

to run into is a major police<br />

operation.<br />

But that is what happened<br />

to Benjamin Jaye Smith, who<br />

was stopped in an armed<br />

police cordon in Spreydon on<br />

March 15, 2019 – the day of the<br />

mosque terror attacks.<br />

Police were not looking<br />

for him, but other potential<br />

terrorists after they had other<br />

captured the gunman nearby in<br />

Brougham St.<br />

<strong>The</strong> case can be revealed<br />

following guilty pleas by Smith<br />

in the district court. Smith is<br />

set to be sentenced on May 24,<br />

2<strong>02</strong>3.<br />

According to the summary<br />

of facts, as the mosque gunman<br />

was arrested in Brougham St<br />

he indicated to police he had<br />

bombs inside his car.<br />

Armed cordon points were<br />

set up to secure and contain a<br />

250m area radius of his car<br />

due to the IED in the boot of<br />

his car, and the possibility it<br />

may explode prior to being<br />

made safe.<br />

<strong>The</strong> terrorist also told police<br />

there were nine active shooters<br />

in the city. Police staff were<br />

advised there were likely other<br />

people and vehicles outstanding<br />

in relation to the shootings.<br />

About 3.30pm Smith was<br />

driving his car in a northerly<br />

direction on Strickland St.<br />

An armed police officer<br />

stationed at a cordon point<br />

on Strickland St heard his car<br />

approaching the cordon at<br />

speed and believed the car was<br />

not going to stop.<br />

As Smith came around<br />

a blind corner, he stopped<br />

abruptly behind a row of cars<br />

already at the cordon point.<br />

An armed police officer<br />

approached Smith’s car and<br />

conducted an armed vehicle<br />

stop. He then invoked a Search<br />

and Surveillance Act search of<br />

the car after seeing the butt of a<br />

sawn-off rifle in the boot.<br />

<strong>The</strong> officer found a sawn-off<br />

.22 calibre pistol about 750mm<br />

in length with one round of<br />

ammunition in the chamber. A<br />

silencer was also located in the<br />

car.<br />

Inside the magazine attached<br />

to the pistol were five rounds of<br />

.22 calibre ammunition.<br />

<strong>The</strong> car was then towed and<br />

secured at the Christchurch<br />

South Police Station.<br />

<strong>The</strong> following day police<br />

searched the car again.<br />

Inside was an electronic cash<br />

counting machine and a sentry<br />

safe containing $108,860 cash<br />

and 921 grams of methamphetamine.<br />

<strong>The</strong> methamphetamine was<br />

worth about $160,000.<br />

Text messages revealed Smith<br />

supplied controlled drugs, likely<br />

to be methamphetamine, to<br />

a person who then sold it to<br />

various people in the Tasman<br />

area.<br />

THE COMPETITION was as<br />

hot as the water was cold, but<br />

Hannah Drury still managed to<br />

swim her way to world record<br />

success.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 44-year-old said four<br />

months of bathing in her garage<br />

chest freezer had paid off, as she<br />

arrived back home in Canterbury<br />

last week with two gold medals<br />

from the world ice-swimming<br />

championships in Samoëns,<br />

France.<br />

She won gold in the 100mbutterfly,<br />

where she recorded an<br />

age-group world record time of<br />

1min 33.69sec, and the 100m<br />

individual medley, where she recorded<br />

an age-group world record<br />

time of 1min 33.07sec.<br />

“I am really proud of what I<br />

achieved and I didn’t think I<br />

would swim as fast as I did. I<br />

certainly never expected to win<br />

two gold medals in record times,”<br />

Drury said.<br />

Her training regime involved<br />

sitting in her freezer filled with<br />

ice-cold water for up to six<br />

minutes a day.<br />

“I definitely think it helped,<br />

because once I got into the lake,<br />

which was about three degrees, I<br />

didn’t bat an eyelid at the cold. It<br />

was more about getting on with<br />

fast swimming.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> competition was “fierce”<br />

with more than 350 swimmers<br />

from about 40 countries.<br />

<strong>The</strong> lake water temperature<br />

had been “perfect” at 3-4 deg C,<br />

in spite of unseasonably mild<br />

weather across Europe.<br />

<strong>The</strong> New Zealand team of eight<br />

swimmers finished ninth on<br />

the medal table, bringing home<br />

10 golds, four silvers and two<br />

bronzes.<br />

Drury said she and her team<br />

members had an “awesome<br />

time” in Samoëns and enjoyed<br />

the supportive and friendly<br />

atmosphere in “the frozen<br />

village”.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> New Zealand team were<br />

well recognised, and the other<br />

teams loved how we were so tightknit<br />

and had travelled so far to be<br />

there,” she said.<br />

A memorable moment was<br />

when one of the team members<br />

lost their togs during a race.<br />

“Thankfully they were not<br />

disqualified.”<br />

Drury said she was looking<br />

forward to the upcoming<br />

competitions in New Zealand<br />

over winter, the first of which is<br />

in July at St Bathans in Central<br />

Otago.<br />

She had not yet returned to<br />

bathing in her freezer, but was<br />

not ruling it out in the next few<br />

weeks, especially as she wanted<br />

to stay acclimatised to the cold<br />

conditions.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> freezer is still there ready<br />

for me to get in,” she said.<br />

Property prices hold up against the trend<br />

• By Nona Pettelier<br />

PROPERTY PRICES in<br />

Christchurch have fallen just<br />

one per cent over the last year,<br />

while other major centres have<br />

suffered a marked drop.<br />

Wellington was down 18.1 per<br />

cent, Auckland 8.2 per cent and<br />

Dunedin 10 per cent, January’s<br />

CoreLogic House Price Index<br />

shows. House prices fell in all<br />

the major centres and regions,<br />

apart from Gisborne, New<br />

Plymouth and Queenstown.<br />

<strong>The</strong> index saw residential<br />

property values fall 7.2 per cent<br />

over the year earlier, which was<br />

the biggest 12-month decline<br />

since May 2009’s drop of 7.9 per<br />

cent. Further falls of between 15<br />

and 20 per cent expected in the<br />

second half of this year.<br />

However, CoreLogic chief<br />

property economist Kelvin<br />

Davidson said last month’s drop<br />

was smaller than the worst of<br />

the global financial crisis, when<br />

prices fell 9.7 per cent in the year<br />

to March 2009.<br />

He said the green shoots of<br />

optimism seen in October and<br />

November evaporated following<br />

the Reserve Bank’s gloomy<br />

monetary policy statement in<br />

late November, which pointed<br />

to rising interest rates and a<br />

recession from the middle of<br />

this year.<br />

DRUM BANGS FOR<br />

LOUDER LIVE MUSIC<br />

People wanting live venues in the<br />

central city to be allowed to play<br />

louder music have taken their<br />

case to the city council. A petition<br />

signed by just over 3500 people<br />

was presented to city councillors<br />

at their meeting yesterday. <strong>The</strong><br />

petition is the latest move in the<br />

saga over live music in the central<br />

city after bar Dux Central in<br />

Lichfield St had to drop live music<br />

after a new neighbour complained<br />

about the noise. <strong>The</strong> petition<br />

was presented to city councillors<br />

by musician Mark Chirnside. It<br />

calls for the maximum permitted<br />

decibels within the central city to<br />

be raised from 60dB to 140dB.<br />

FEEDBACK SOUGHT OVER<br />

CATTLE BARNS<br />

Residents will be given the chance<br />

to give feedback on a farmer’s<br />

consent application to build<br />

four large indoor cattle barns on<br />

Banks Peninsula. Farm company<br />

Wongan Hills has applied<br />

for consents to Environment<br />

Canterbury to build four large<br />

composting feed farms on their<br />

Kaituna Valley farm – which<br />

could hold up to 2200 cattle –<br />

near Te Waihora Lake Ellesmere.<br />

<strong>The</strong> four large sheds would house<br />

the cattle 24 hours a day, yearround.<br />

Local community group<br />

Little River Eco Collective has<br />

been vocal in opposition to the<br />

proposed barns – saying they will<br />

have detrimental effects on the<br />

local environment.<br />

PRINTING UP A STINK<br />

Two Canterbury University<br />

students Joel Tregurtha and Te<br />

Matau O Te Rangi Allen have<br />

spent their summer developing<br />

and 3D printing a model stink<br />

bug. <strong>The</strong> project has seen the<br />

development of a prototype larger<br />

than life-size model of the brown<br />

marmorated stink bug, which is<br />

about the size of a 10 cent coin.<br />

<strong>The</strong> stink bug is an east Asian<br />

bug now found in North and<br />

South America and Europe. It<br />

is a particularly difficult pest to<br />

eradicate and control, devastating<br />

horticulture and causing a<br />

nuisance overwintering in homes.<br />

As a hitchhiker, the risk of it<br />

arriving in New Zealand is high.<br />

Smith was a supplier of “significant<br />

More homes affected by sea level rise<br />

• By Tony Simons<br />

A NEW assessment on the<br />

threat of sea level rise means the<br />

number of ‘at risk’ properties<br />

in the city, on Banks Peninsula<br />

and along Pegasus Bay coast has<br />

increased by nearly 20 per cent.<br />

<strong>The</strong> coastal hazards assessment<br />

report for the city council, undertaken<br />

by environmental consultancy<br />

company Tonkin+Taylor,<br />

has identified 5400 more vulnerable<br />

properties across Christchurch,<br />

including 1500 more on the<br />

peninsula.<br />

<strong>The</strong> changes<br />

mean there are now<br />

32,800 properties<br />

across greater<br />

Christchurch considered<br />

in danger<br />

Mark<br />

Stevenson<br />

from coastal flooding<br />

or erosion.<br />

Another 3900<br />

properties in low<br />

lying suburbs like Linwood,<br />

Burwood and Heathcote, and<br />

adjacent to Pegasus Bay coastline,<br />

have also been added, said city<br />

council acting head of planning<br />

and consents Mark Stevenson.<br />

<strong>The</strong> latest assessment included<br />

more of Banks Peninsula than<br />

was included in a previous<br />

assessment in 2017, “leading to<br />

1500 more properties in that<br />

area being identified at risk,”<br />

Stevenson said.<br />

CLIMATE CHANGE: Another 1500 properties on Banks Peninsula are at risk from sea level<br />

rise, a new assessment shows.<br />

PHOTO: GETTY<br />

Most of the newly classified<br />

properties are in Diamond<br />

Harbour, Duvauchelle, Le Bons<br />

Bay, Lyttelton, Okains Bay and<br />

Wainui. In each area more than<br />

100 properties have been newly<br />

identified at risk, said Stevenson.<br />

Other areas affected include<br />

Birdlings Flat, Governors Bay,<br />

Little River, Motukarara, Pigeon<br />

Bay and Port Levy, but to a lesser<br />

extent.<br />

Property owners have had<br />

the information added to their<br />

Land Information Memorandum<br />

(LIM) so they are aware of the<br />

risk. <strong>The</strong> city council has also<br />

sent letters to property owners<br />

with the latest information<br />

included.<br />

“We appreciate this is not<br />

welcome news for some residents,<br />

but we wanted to let people know<br />

what information is held by the<br />

council for their<br />

property,” said city<br />

council general<br />

manager infrastructure,<br />

planning and<br />

regulatory services<br />

Jane Davis.<br />

It is critical<br />

people have good<br />

Jane<br />

Davis<br />

information about the current<br />

and predicted future impacts on<br />

individual properties, she said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> latest assessment, provided<br />

to the city council in 2<strong>02</strong>1, applied<br />

different methods and used<br />

more data.<br />

It used “a different and improved<br />

methodology, updated input<br />

data, and a wider geographic<br />

area has been used . . . leading<br />

to different outcomes for some<br />

properties,” Davis said.<br />

For some properties, including<br />

some at Southshore, this has<br />

meant a lower assessed risk than<br />

in 2017.<br />

Said Stevenson: “It’s important<br />

to understand that this recent<br />

notification . . . adds to existing<br />

coastal hazards LIM comments<br />

from the 2017 Coastal Hazards<br />

Assessment.”<br />

Suspected murder-suicide of elderly<br />

Three years after his<br />

parents died in a<br />

suspected murdersuicide,<br />

one question<br />

still haunts their<br />

youngest son. Sam<br />

Sherwood reports<br />

SEAN FEARY was sitting at<br />

home in Washington when his<br />

29-year-old daughter called from<br />

Christchurch. Clearly distressed<br />

she immediately said, “Grandma<br />

and Granddad have been<br />

murdered”.<br />

Feary tried to reassure her<br />

and said she was wrong and that<br />

they were fine. She then told him<br />

about news articles that showed<br />

his parents’ home in Christchurch<br />

and reports that two bodies<br />

had been found.<br />

He told her to head straight to<br />

the scene and talk to the police officers<br />

there. When she arrived, she<br />

called her dad again and he spoke<br />

with a police officer at the scene.<br />

<strong>The</strong> officer explained how<br />

Feary’s father, Bill Feary, 80, had<br />

called the police about 4am on<br />

September 30, 2019, and told the<br />

operator he had killed his ailing<br />

77-year-old wife Jill, and was<br />

intending on self harming.<br />

A police negotiation team and<br />

armed offenders squad rushed<br />

to the property immediately.<br />

After breaking in they found the<br />

couple dead.<br />

<strong>The</strong> district’s top police officer<br />

said at the time the deaths were<br />

an “absolute tragedy”.<br />

Feary, speaking to the Herald<br />

on Sunday for the first time,<br />

says he has no doubt the couple<br />

planned their deaths.<br />

“To me it’s like a Romeo and<br />

Juliet story. Mum couldn’t take<br />

anymore and he couldn’t live<br />

without her. She was his whole<br />

life.<br />

“I couldn’t have asked for<br />

better parents.”<br />

Sean Feary was born in<br />

Wellington but the family,<br />

including his older brother,<br />

soon moved to Christchurch.<br />

Bill Feary, who was the boys’<br />

stepfather, raised them from<br />

when Feary was about eight.<br />

“Dad made me the man I am<br />

today, he was awesome,” Feary<br />

says.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y always took us on little<br />

holidays and things like that,<br />

it was just normal Kiwi life. It<br />

MISSED: Sean Feary (above)<br />

is adamant his parents Jill<br />

and Bill Feary planned their<br />

deaths.<br />

was great.”<br />

Bill Feary spent most of his<br />

career in broadcasting as a rigger,<br />

before moving to Christchurch<br />

and working for a flooring<br />

company and then taking up a<br />

job as a bus driver before retiring.<br />

Jill Feary worked at a local<br />

clothing apparel company until<br />

she retired.<br />

Sean Feary moved to the US<br />

when he was 30, but kept in constant<br />

contact with his parents.<br />

Jill Feary’s retirement was<br />

marred by health issues including<br />

chronic obstructive pulmonary<br />

disease – an inflammatory lung<br />

disease that causes obstructed<br />

airflow from the lungs – as well<br />

as a virus that injured her heart.<br />

This was followed by breast cancer,<br />

which required her to have a<br />

mastectomy in her mid-60s.<br />

Despite the major operation,<br />

she made sure she was able to<br />

travel to see her son and celebrate<br />

his 40th birthday.<br />

However, she never fully healed<br />

from the surgery, with complications<br />

that would continue for the<br />

last 12 years of her life. Near the<br />

end, she had pneumonia.<br />

Feary says his mum was too<br />

stubborn to have someone come<br />

and care for her.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re was no way that mum<br />

was going to have someone<br />

changing a nappy or bathing her<br />

because she went through it with<br />

my grandmother and there was<br />

no dignity in that,” he says.<br />

“She was definitely suffering,<br />

and I could tell when I spoke to<br />

her she was in a lot of pain.”<br />

Her health issues continued<br />

to worsen and she had to visit<br />

the hospital two or three times a<br />

week.<br />

“She loved the Christchurch<br />

Hospital staff,” her son says.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y did nothing but take<br />

care of her.”<br />

Sean Feary is adamant his parents<br />

planned their deaths.<br />

Bill Feary, who took on the<br />

role of caring for Jill, became<br />

more protective of his wife as her<br />

condition worsened.

NEWS 7<br />

“He didn’t want her stressing<br />

out, didn’t want her doing too<br />

much. He did all the cooking,<br />

he babied her, and he really took<br />

care of mum a lot, above and<br />

beyond.<br />

“He adored her, she was his<br />

soulmate.”<br />

Bill Feary would often email<br />

him with updates about his<br />

mother’s health. <strong>The</strong> last email<br />

was to inform him she had<br />

pneumonia.<br />

Feary got a call from his mum<br />

in March 2019 asking him to<br />

come home as she missed him<br />

and wanted to see him. He did<br />

so, spending a few weeks with<br />

the couple, and he said aside<br />

from the health issues the couple<br />

appeared to be fine.<br />

“Dad was still goofy as ever.”<br />

Feary’s last conversation<br />

with his parents – who had<br />

10 grandchildren and nine<br />

great-grandchildren – was just a<br />

“normal phone call”, he recalls.<br />

“Mum and Dad were just<br />

joking around.”<br />

He was supposed to call them<br />

the following weekend but<br />

forgot. <strong>The</strong> next day he was on<br />

the phone with the policeman<br />

who was telling him about his<br />

parents’ deaths.<br />

“It was such a shock; I just<br />

went numb.”<br />

After consoling his wife and<br />

children, he booked flights and<br />

HOME: <strong>The</strong> Burnside house where Bill and Jill Feary died<br />

in a suspected murder-suicide.<br />

was in Christchurch within two<br />

days.<br />

Immediately after touching<br />

down, he went to identify his<br />

parents at Christchurch Hospital<br />

before going to their home.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> police were brilliant. I<br />

got there and it was like nothing<br />

had happened; they repaired the<br />

house.”<br />

In the bedroom Feary would<br />

stay in when he visited was a<br />

large bag on the bed. Inside<br />

was his children’s favourite<br />

chocolate, jet plane lollies for<br />

him, socks for his wife, and<br />

photos of his children. He is<br />

convinced his mum left it all for<br />

him shortly before she died.<br />

“I know Mum knew what<br />

was going on. Dad wouldn’t<br />

have done that, that was Mum<br />

through and through.”<br />

A will was also left in the<br />

living room.<br />

Feary spent about a month<br />

in Christchurch, dealing with<br />

police and lawyers and sorting<br />

the family home.<br />

“I didn’t really have time to<br />

grieve. My whole time there<br />

was just dealing with what had<br />

happened.”<br />

He credits Victim Support<br />

staff for helping him come to<br />

terms with his parents’ death<br />

while he was in the country.<br />

Three years on, Feary, now<br />

54, is still coming to terms<br />

with what happened. A private<br />

person, he does not like<br />

speaking about it too often<br />

and tries to stay busy, but<br />

admits there are times when<br />

the emotions just come to him,<br />

seemingly out of nowhere.<br />

“I miss them every day. I<br />

will be driving to work in my<br />

van and it’ll just hit me again.<br />

Sometimes I have a tear and a<br />

wee bit of a cry and I’ll be like<br />

why? Just out of the blue. It’s one<br />

of those things,” he says.<br />

“I’m just grateful that I’ve got<br />

great kids and my wife has been<br />

nothing but supportive.”<br />

Asked how he feels towards<br />

his father, he says he loves him<br />

and holds no ill will for what<br />

happened.<br />

“Dad was pretty healthy and<br />

he just would not want to live<br />

without Mum. I don’t know<br />

many men that would’ve gone<br />

through what he went through<br />

and completely stick behind<br />

Mum 100 per cent in the way he<br />

took care of her.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y loved each other so<br />

much.”<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are still some<br />

unanswered questions for Feary,<br />

which he hopes a coroner’s<br />

report will one day solve.<br />

But the most important<br />

question, that still haunts him, is<br />

about his mum.<br />

“I want to make sure my mum<br />

never suffered and that she was<br />

at peace.<br />

“It would be closure because I<br />

keep thinking about it.”<br />

Another twist in the Cave Rock<br />

• By Tony Simons<br />

THE FUTURE of one of the<br />

most desirable coastal building<br />

sites in Christchurch is up in the<br />

air – yet again.<br />

<strong>The</strong> controversial and<br />

troublesome 4186m 2 site facing<br />

the beach at the entrance to<br />

Sumner village has been<br />

fenced bare land for years, except<br />

for a tavern building with a<br />

large derelict and often-flooded<br />

basement car park underneath.<br />

One of the owners, Lime<br />

Developments, has refused to<br />

comment on its latest plans but<br />

it appears a 2<strong>02</strong>1 a proposal to<br />

build apartments with a wine bar<br />

underneath, alongside a private<br />

residence, have evaporated.<br />

Another shareholder, developer<br />

Shane Kennedy, had been in<br />

talks with the city council, saying<br />

he intended to start building in<br />

2<strong>02</strong>1. A resource consent was<br />

granted last year but now a new<br />

resource consent application<br />

has been lodged for a larger<br />

complex called <strong>The</strong> Marriner. It<br />

proposes 14 apartments and six<br />

commercial units covering the<br />

entire western half of the site.<br />

Kennedy has also declined to<br />

comment on the latest plans.<br />

For more than 25 years the former<br />

Cave Rock Apartments site<br />

has been plagued with conflict,<br />

bitterness, controversy and bad<br />

luck. It started in the mid-1990s<br />

when plans for a 49-apartment<br />

Peter Beavan-designed complex<br />

was first announced by developer<br />

PRIME PROPERTY:<br />

<strong>The</strong> 4186m 2 site at the<br />

entrance to Sumner<br />

village as it looks today.<br />

Left – the quake-damaged<br />

apartment complex before<br />

it was demolished in 2012.<br />

Peter Foster, and neighbours<br />

objected. <strong>The</strong>y were finally approved<br />

and the complex was built<br />

in 1998.<br />

Just a few years later problems<br />

emerged as many of the apartments<br />

were found to have design<br />

defects and were leaky buildings.<br />

An agreement had to be negotiated<br />

with the city council and the<br />

builder to repair them.<br />

Mainzeal was about to start repairs<br />

when the <strong>February</strong> 22, 2011,<br />

earthquake struck and the main<br />

block was abandoned soon after.<br />

<strong>The</strong> entire complex then<br />

became the subject of a long and<br />

bitter dispute between the owners,<br />

and with EQC and NZI (part<br />

of IAG) over how to repair the<br />

buildings and flooded basement<br />

car park at the eastern end of the<br />

site. <strong>The</strong> complex continued to<br />

suffer after the quakes, Mainzeal<br />

went bust, and architect Peter<br />

Beavan died aged 86 from cancer<br />

caused by asbestos. <strong>The</strong> main<br />

block was finally demolished in<br />

2012.<br />

In 2016, the owners rejected<br />

a $16 million full and final<br />

settlement offer from the insurers<br />

and two more years went by<br />

before they finally settled at<br />

mediation on the eve of High<br />

Court action for an undisclosed<br />

sum. A plan to rebuild the main<br />

block was then abandoned after<br />

costs escalated and, in 2018, a<br />

conditional offer to purchase the<br />

property as-is-where-is for $4.8m<br />

was accepted. More in-fighting<br />

followed as four apartment<br />

owners, unhappy with how the<br />

money was to be distributed,<br />

refused to sell. <strong>The</strong>y included the<br />

original developer, Peter Foster.<br />

waterfront apartments saga<br />

•From page 1<br />

<strong>The</strong> High Court was called on<br />

to settle that dispute, too, ordering<br />

them to sell. <strong>The</strong>n, even more<br />

dispute and legal action over the<br />

agreed purchase price after vandals<br />

damaged the buildings.<br />

When it was all over, owners<br />

were finally paid the last of the<br />

proceeds in April 2<strong>02</strong>1, but not<br />

before 14 of the original residents<br />

had died in the meantime.<br />

<strong>The</strong> purchaser Jonathan Lyttle<br />

of Citadel Property said at the<br />

time he was excited about taking<br />

over the site.<br />

“We are really happy for the<br />

members of the body corporate<br />

and owners who have been<br />

through quite an ordeal,” he said.<br />

However, not long after, he<br />

demolished the remaining apartments<br />

and in mid-2<strong>02</strong>0 the land<br />

was divided into five plots, later<br />

changed to four, in a process complicated<br />

by a stormwater easement<br />

running through the middle of<br />

the site.<br />

<strong>The</strong> sections were marketed<br />

for a while as sites for owner-occupiers<br />

or builders, but only one<br />

sold. Concrete foundations were<br />

poured for the private residence<br />

and locals said timber framing<br />

and trusses turned up on site but<br />

soon after, they were taken away<br />

again.<br />

Marriner Developments then<br />

acquired the entire site.<br />

Several resource consents have<br />

been applied for and granted for<br />

the site over the past few years, the<br />

most recent late last year which<br />

the city council is reviewing.<br />

City council planners said<br />

they cannot confirm when the<br />

latest application for a mixed use<br />

complex might be considered.<br />

Boy’s close call with irrigator<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

A BOY FACES a slow recovery<br />

after being seriously injured by<br />

a lawn irrigator while playing in<br />

a park.<br />

Ten-year-old Jayden sustained<br />

a depressed skull fracture and<br />

bleed on the brain after being hit<br />

on his head by a rotating arm of<br />

the machine.<br />

He was visiting Southbridge<br />

Domain playground with his<br />

grandmother Angela Slade and<br />

eight-year-old cousin Emily.<br />

Angela said the visit to the<br />

park suddenly became a life-anddeath<br />

situation after Jayden was<br />

attracted to water around the<br />

travelling roto-rainer irrigator in<br />

hot weather. He was struck as he<br />

stood up after slipping.<br />

Angela said at first she had not<br />

noticed Jayden had wandered<br />

about 15m away to play under<br />

the irrigator on an adjoining<br />

rugby field. As she unpacked<br />

food onto a picnic table, she<br />

heard “a horrible, horrible<br />

scream”.<br />

“That’s when I turned around,<br />

he was just getting back up again<br />

and the bar nearly got him again.<br />

I’m like: ‘Get out, get out’.”<br />

Angela said while she had earlier<br />

pointed out to the children<br />

a single caution sign nearby<br />

saying ‘Potentially Dangerous<br />

Equipment’, this had obviously<br />

not been enough to keep Jayden<br />

away.<br />

Jayden was in extreme pain<br />

after the accident and began<br />

vomiting. He was taken to<br />

Christchurch Hospital by ambulance.<br />

Mum Sarah Whittaker said<br />

doctors at first thought he had<br />

SERIOUS<br />

INJURY: Jayden<br />

was taken by<br />

ambulance to<br />

Christchurch<br />

Hospital after<br />

being hit by<br />

the arm of<br />

a roto-rainer<br />

irrigator.<br />

severe concussion, but they were<br />

as surprised as she was when<br />

a CT scan showed a depressed<br />

skull fracture and bleed on the<br />

brain.<br />

Last week he had a craniotomy,<br />

where a 10cm long piece of bone<br />

from his forehead was removed<br />

and replaced with a plate. He<br />

may have to have more surgeries<br />

to replace the plate as he grows.<br />

He was discharged at the weekend,<br />

and is expected to make a<br />

full recovery. But that recovery<br />

will be slow as he suffers the<br />

head injury effects of fatigue,<br />

headaches, irritability and light<br />

sensitivity. He will be at school<br />

only part-time throughout term<br />

one.<br />

Whittaker said she was glad to<br />

hear the Selwyn District Council<br />

had removed all such irrigators<br />

from operation in parks and<br />

reserves. She said while the caution<br />

sign had been pointed out<br />

to Jayden, he would not have absorbed<br />

the information due to a<br />

learning disability and dyslexia.<br />

“I don’t want it to happen to<br />

anybody else,” she said.<br />

Selwyn District council group<br />

manager infrastructure and<br />

property Murray Washington<br />

said while in operation the<br />

irrigator had three caution<br />

signs “placed at different points<br />

around the reserve to alert people<br />

approaching from different<br />

directions.”<br />

“This type of irrigator is<br />

common in rural areas and has<br />

been used by the council for<br />

around 30 years without incident<br />

to our knowledge. We plan<br />

to replace them with modern<br />

technology water cannon type<br />

irrigators, which will minimise<br />

any future risk to the public.”<br />

A $37 million dollar idea<br />

ignited in Christchurch and<br />

fuelled by an ecosystem.<br />

If you haven’t heard of Partly,<br />

this time will not be the last.<br />

‘One day I will get you’:<br />

Business owner jailed<br />

for attempted rape<br />

CONVICTED:<br />

Owner of Gerald<br />

Diver Painter<br />

& Decorator,<br />

Gerald Diver,<br />

preyed on two<br />

of his former<br />

employees.<br />

NZ HERALD<br />

• By Emily Moorhouse<br />

THE OWNER of a painting<br />

business repeatedly smacked<br />

the bottom of one of his young<br />

female employees and told<br />

another “one day I will get you”<br />

before plying her with vodka and<br />

attempting to rape her during a<br />

work trip.<br />

Gerald Mark Diver’s victims<br />

said his unwanted sexual behaviour<br />

towards them became<br />

“normal” and it was often passed<br />

off by him as “workplace banter”.<br />

But on Monday, the 53-yearold<br />

owner of Gerald Diver Painter<br />

& Decorator was sentenced in<br />

the district court to four years<br />

and four months in jail, after the<br />

two women revealed his offending<br />

and brought to an end his<br />

workplace harassment.<br />

<strong>The</strong> first former employee,<br />

referred to in court as victim<br />

A, said she had become “numb<br />

and immune” to Diver slapping<br />

her bottom. After experiencing<br />

the assault almost daily for<br />

several years, it became normal<br />

behaviour, she said.<br />

He would also make comments<br />

to her such as “you’re<br />

looking good today”.<br />

<strong>The</strong> woman felt “unworthy<br />

and belittled”. Diver paid her<br />

minimum wage and told her she<br />

wasn’t worth more, despite her<br />

being a qualified painter. She<br />

eventually resigned.<br />

As she began to believe Diver’s<br />

treatment of her was standard,<br />

other men started disrespecting<br />

her too.<br />

She didn’t speak up about the<br />

assaults while employed by him<br />

as she feared her voice would not<br />

be heard over that of her boss’.<br />

Victim B told the court she<br />

was once a “strong, jovial and<br />

happy painter” who was handpicked<br />

by Diver to work for his<br />

company.<br />

But he would later sack her<br />

after she confronted him about<br />

attempting to rape her.<br />

<strong>The</strong> experience lingered in<br />

her new relationships, making<br />

it difficult for her to trust. Panic<br />

attacks and flashbacks became<br />

a common occurrence and she<br />

missed out on celebrating milestones<br />

with her loved ones.<br />

“Gerald Diver deserves to<br />

feel the full force of the justice<br />

system given the offence of the<br />

crimes he inflicted on me and<br />

his other victims,” she said in her<br />

victim impact statement.<br />

Diver had once been overheard<br />

by victim A telling victim B “I<br />

will sleep with you one day”. . .<br />

“one day I will get you”.<br />

In September 2<strong>02</strong>0, victim<br />

B and Diver travelled north of<br />

Christchurch for an overnight<br />

work trip. <strong>The</strong>y were staying in a<br />

shared motel unit with separate<br />

bedrooms.<br />

Following a day’s work,<br />

they had dinner together and<br />

Diver bought a one-litre bottle of<br />

vodka which they drank in the<br />

games room of the motel.<br />

Victim B said she got drunk<br />

“really fast” and Diver began<br />

saying “vile” things to her of a<br />

sexual nature and told her to<br />

keep drinking.<br />

After they left the games room<br />

Diver tried to pull her into the<br />

motel unit despite her repeatedly<br />

saying “no” and pushing him<br />

away.<br />

She recalled him becoming<br />

aggressive and continuing to pull<br />

her before she blacked out in a<br />

bedroom.<br />

<strong>The</strong> next morning she woke<br />

to find she was not wearing any<br />

tights or underwear. She could<br />

recall being held down, unable to<br />

move or see anything and feeling<br />

a “massive” weight on her.<br />

At the time, victim B didn’t say<br />

anything to Diver about what<br />

had happened but a few days<br />

later she raised it with him and<br />

stated she did not want to work<br />

alongside him that week.<br />

Diver told her nothing happened<br />

and she was “making<br />

things up”, she said. But a few<br />

days later when she tried to confront<br />

him again, he cancelled her<br />

work and sent her home.<br />

Diver faced a charge of attempted<br />

sexual violation by rape<br />

and a representative count of<br />

indecent assault, having been<br />

found guilty in an earlier judgealone<br />

trial.<br />

Diver was initially charged<br />

with rape but at trial the court<br />

heard his erectile dysfunction<br />

meant he could not achieve<br />

an erection long enough for<br />

penetration. This was used as<br />

his defence, which contributed<br />

to the charge being reduced to<br />

attempted rape.<br />

At sentencing, Crown prosecutor<br />

Courtney Martyn questioned<br />

Diver’s claimed remorse, submitting<br />

it was actually self-pitying.<br />

Defence lawyer Grant Fletcher<br />

said the court must take into<br />

consideration that rape had not<br />

been proven and it was instead<br />

attempted rape.<br />

But Judge Michael Crosbie<br />

resisted the submission, stating:<br />

“It is not a clumsy attempt. I find<br />

it likely that Mr Diver raped her.”<br />

THE DRIVER behind a fatal<br />

hit-and-run told police it was<br />

his friend who was responsible<br />

for the crash and he didn’t know<br />

anything about it.<br />

But in the district court,<br />

Anthony Alexander Thomas<br />

admitted he had lied to police<br />

about being in the passenger seat<br />

when his Subaru vehicle collided<br />

with cyclist Sean William Russell<br />

Innes in Linwood.<br />

He pleaded guilty to conspiring<br />

to defeat the course of justice<br />

after having earlier admitted<br />

to driving dangerously causing<br />

death and failing to stop and<br />

ascertain injury.<br />

Initially, a 44-year-old Ashburton<br />

man who has interim name<br />

suppression was accused of the<br />

hit-and-run.<br />

But Thomas, a 30-year-old<br />

farmer from Ashburton, later<br />

owned up to being behind the<br />

wheel after he was “overcome<br />

with guilt” when Innes, 45, died<br />

in hospital two weeks later.<br />

According to the summary of<br />

facts, Thomas and his co-accused<br />

were travelling from Ashburton<br />

to Christchurch about 3pm on<br />

September 13 last year.<br />

Thomas was driving and his<br />

co-accused was in the passenger<br />

seat as the car turned onto Linwood<br />

Ave, which was busy with<br />

traffic at the time.<br />

As he approached stationary<br />

traffic at the intersection<br />

of Linwood Ave and Buckleys<br />

Rd, Thomas drove along the<br />

left-hand shoulder of the road,<br />

designated for cyclists.<br />

Innes, who was cycling, was<br />

struck from behind and forced<br />

up onto the car’s bonnet before<br />

being thrown onto the road.<br />

Thomas, who was travelling at<br />

least 73km/h when he hit Innes,<br />

made no attempt to slow down<br />

or stop following the collision.<br />

Instead, he completed a left turn<br />

and fled the scene.<br />

A short distance from the<br />

crash site, Thomas pulled over<br />

and swapped seats with his coaccused.<br />

<strong>The</strong> man then drove the<br />

car towards Burwood, having to<br />

steer while looking out the window<br />

due to the windscreen damage.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Subaru also had damage<br />

Fatal hit-and-run cover-up<br />

GUILTY PLEA: Anthony Thomas admitted he had been<br />

driving the Subaru that hit and killed cyclist Sean Innes.<br />

to its front bumper, headlights<br />

and its front and rear driver’s<br />

side tyres were deflated.<br />

Thomas and his co-accused<br />

parked the vehicle in the residential<br />

red zone before fleeing across<br />

abandoned land and swimming<br />

across Horseshoe Lake in Burwood.<br />

Later that evening, Thomas<br />

called the police and reported his<br />

vehicle as stolen, claiming he had<br />

woken up to find it missing.<br />

But after hearing Innes had<br />

died as a result of the crash,<br />

Thomas came clean and was<br />

arrested and charged. He was remanded<br />

on electronically monitored<br />

bail ahead of his sentencing<br />

on May 4.<br />

His co-accused did not turn up<br />

to court, prompting the judge to<br />

issue a warrant for his arrest.<br />

THE NAME of a Merivale man<br />

who used the handle “Superdad”<br />

to operate an account to upload<br />

sexual content involving children<br />

and share with other users his<br />

dark desire to “perv on young<br />

kids” can now be revealed.<br />

Anthony David Cook, 59, was<br />

sentenced in the district court<br />

last week to four years and one<br />

month in prison for sharing and<br />

possessing child sexual exploitation<br />

material.<br />

According to the summary<br />

of facts, in 2015 Cook used fake<br />

details and the username Superdad748<br />

to create an account on a<br />

social media messenger platform<br />

located in the United States.<br />

In January 2019, he uploaded<br />

CSEM involving a boy aged between<br />

seven and 10 years.<br />

This was detected by the social<br />

media platform and while it was<br />

reported to authorities, a suspect<br />

could not be linked to the distribution<br />

of the image.<br />

Cook continued to upload<br />

CSEM, distributing a total of 41<br />

services were able to link it to his<br />

account.<br />

In October 2<strong>02</strong>1, police<br />

searched Cook’s Merivale home<br />

and found two iPhones.<br />

<strong>The</strong> phones were searched and<br />

a total of 1056 objectionable publications<br />

were discovered. Some<br />

involved children as young as<br />

four years old performing sexual<br />

acts on adults.<br />

According to the summary,<br />

Cook would message others on<br />

the platform and express how he<br />

“loved to perv on young kids getting<br />

changed”.<br />

“I think the pools will finally<br />

get a visit from me this weekend.<br />

Can’t stop thinking about the<br />

little boy’s c****,” he said in one<br />

exchange.<br />

In another message, Cook<br />

described seeing a 10-year-old<br />

girl at a customer’s home he had<br />

visited. He told the recipient he<br />

had been thinking of the girl in a<br />

sexual way.<br />

“I stared at her when I could<br />

and she held my gaze.”<br />

Arrested pornographer faces nervy wait<br />

• By Kurt Bayer<br />

AN EX-PAT Cantabrian who<br />

helped trick women into<br />

becoming porn stars has lost his<br />

US lawyer and had sentencing<br />

delayed – while his old boss and<br />

Christchurch schoolboy friend is<br />

awaiting extradition from Spain<br />

after appearing on the FBI’s Ten<br />

Most Wanted Fugitives list.<br />

Matthew Isaac Wolfe, aka<br />

‘Ben’, was due to be sentenced in<br />

a San Diego courtroom this week<br />

for his roles in the GirlsDoPorn<br />

scandal.<br />

Wolfe, 41, is facing a maximum<br />

sentence of life imprisonment<br />

after earlier pleading guilty<br />

to conspiracy to commit sex<br />

trafficking.<br />

But he faces a nervy wait until<br />

May 25 to learn of his fate.<br />

Court documents seen by the<br />

NZ Herald reveal that Wolfe<br />

needs more time to finish his<br />

paperwork to “address the<br />

complicated issues involved in<br />

the matter”. He has also had a<br />

change in attorneys.<br />

Wolfe was a cameraman and<br />

office assistant to Christchurch<br />

primary school buddy Michael<br />

James Pratt’s shady porn empire<br />

behind popular adult websites<br />

GirlsDoPorn and GirlsDoToys.<br />

Others have already been<br />

convicted for their parts in the<br />

scandal.<br />

And Pratt, who had been on<br />

the run since 2019, was finally<br />

arrested in Spain just before<br />

Christmas.<br />

Spanish police announced the<br />

arrest on Twitter, publishing a<br />

video of officers handcuffing a<br />

man and searching him.<br />

A spokeswoman for the FBI,<br />

which had offered US$100,000<br />

for information on Pratt’s<br />

whereabouts, this week told the<br />

NZ Herald he is “still awaiting<br />

extradition”.<br />

To persuade women to appear<br />

in the videos, Wolfe admitted to<br />

telling them the videos would<br />

never be posted online, would<br />

never be released in the United<br />

States, and that no one who<br />

knew the women would ever find<br />

out about their production.<br />

Women targeted by Wolfe said<br />

in a US$20 million lawsuit that<br />

he had promised them the videos<br />

would only be seen by private<br />

collectors in Australia and New<br />

Zealand.<br />

Many of those duped into<br />

filming were struggling financially<br />

and offered between<br />

US$3000-US$5000 as payment,<br />

as well as an “all expenses” trip<br />

to San Diego. <strong>The</strong>y were taken to<br />

motel rooms where the footage<br />

was filmed.<br />

<strong>The</strong> videos were then posted to<br />

the company’s own subscriptionbased<br />

website, while shorter versions<br />

were posted to some of the<br />

world’s largest pornography sites,<br />

with the company profiting over<br />

$17 million in revenue according<br />

to court documents.<br />

<strong>The</strong> videos were viewed over a<br />

billion times – a conservative figure<br />

that doesn’t take into account<br />

pirated copies of the files.<br />

According to the United<br />

States Department of Justice,<br />

Wolfe admitted that he moved<br />

to the United States in 2011 to<br />

work for Pratt, the owner of the<br />

GirlsDoPorn and GirlsDoToys<br />

websites.<br />

<strong>The</strong> pair had been friends since<br />

childhood, growing up together<br />

in Christchurch.<br />

“Wolfe filmed approximately<br />

one hundred videos, he uploaded<br />

finished videos onto the internet,<br />

he oversaw the company’s<br />

financial books, and he operated<br />

various business entities that<br />

were used to promote the<br />

business,” the DOJ said in a<br />

statement.<br />

<strong>The</strong> promises were made,<br />

despite Wolfe knowing Pratt<br />

was also operating a separate<br />

site, pornwikileaks.com, set up<br />

to expose the “true identities”<br />

of women appearing in the sex<br />

videos.<br />

“Even after Wolfe became<br />

aware of this, he and others<br />

continued to assure prospective<br />

models that no one would ever<br />

find out about their video shoot<br />

or learn their identity.”<br />

Mapping sea ice has global impact<br />

CANTERBURY University<br />

researchers are behind<br />

pioneering airborne technology<br />

that will map and measure a<br />

vast stretch of Antarctic sea ice,<br />

revealing more about the critical<br />

role it plays in the global climate<br />

system.<br />

UC School of Earth and Environment<br />

Professor Wolfgang<br />

Rack, a glaciologist, said it will<br />

be the most comprehensive study<br />

of coastal sea ice in Antarctica<br />

ever carried out, and the resulting<br />

data will be internationally<br />

significant.<br />

“Using an aircraft survey,<br />

we plan to measure the largest<br />

stretches of Antarctic sea ice in<br />

history,” he said.<br />

“If we want to be confident<br />

in our predictions of sea ice<br />

trends and better understand the<br />

vital role it plays in a warming<br />

climate, we need more accurate<br />

information on the thickness of<br />

current coastal sea ice.”<br />

Rack and his team, which<br />

includes research scientist Dr<br />

Daniel Price, have been awarded<br />

a three-year $929,000 Marsden<br />

Fund grant from Royal Society<br />

Te Apārangi for the project. It is<br />

a collaboration between UC, Lincoln<br />

Agritech, the Alfred Wegener<br />

Institute for Polar and Marine<br />

Research in Germany, Australian<br />

Antarctic Division, NASA, and<br />

ETH Zurich University.<br />

PROJECT: Canterbury University School of Earth and Environment Professor Wolfgang Rack<br />

with the aircraft that will be used in a study of coastal sea ice in Antarctica. PHOTO: UC<br />

<strong>The</strong> survey will be carried<br />

out in late 2<strong>02</strong>4 in the Ross Sea<br />

and Western Pacific areas of<br />

Antarctica using a fixed-wing<br />

DC3 aircraft. An ‘EM Bird’ –<br />

an electromagnetic induction<br />

device provided by a collaborator<br />

from AWI – will be suspended<br />

80 metres under the aircraft to<br />

measure the thickness of the ice<br />

below.<br />

For this project, it will be combined<br />

with a built-in snow radar,<br />

developed with collaborators at<br />

Lincoln Agritech and integrated<br />

with the EM Bird system at UC<br />

and AWI. In combination, the<br />

technology can simultaneously<br />

measure ice thickness and the<br />

depth of the snow layer on top.<br />

Said Rack: “For the first time<br />

we will be able to directly assess<br />

the thickness and volume<br />

of complex coastal sea ice. We<br />

theorise this type of ice is a<br />

major factor in the global climate<br />

system – if it is changing, then<br />

there will be big consequences<br />

for our planet.”<br />

Sea ice helps sustain Antarctic<br />

‘bottom water’, which is the<br />

deepest, coldest and densest<br />

ocean water. This bottom water<br />

helps remove carbon dioxide<br />

from the atmosphere, storing it<br />

at the ocean floor for a long time.<br />

It also helps circulate the world’s<br />

oceans.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> more sea ice is out there,<br />

the more Antarctic bottom water<br />

is created, so it’s a critical part of<br />

oceanic and atmospheric circulation<br />

with huge global impacts,”<br />

he said.<br />

Vast areas of Antarctic sea ice<br />

cover up to 20 million square kilometres<br />

in winter, reflecting sunlight<br />

and mitigating its warming<br />

effects on sea temperatures.<br />

Sea ice trends are poorly<br />

understood because satellites<br />

can only reliably map their area.<br />

Only a few thickness measurements<br />

are taken from the ground<br />

every year, and they cover a<br />

relatively small area.<br />

“Since the late 1970s, we’ve<br />

observed an increase in the area<br />

of coastal sea ice in Antarctica,<br />

which is the opposite of what one<br />

would expect,” Rack said.<br />

“Only very recently have we<br />

seen a decline, but also much<br />

more variability. We need to<br />

know more about the thickness<br />

of the ice and its overall mass to<br />

understand these changes.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> data collected will be used<br />

to develop a tailored satellitederived<br />

ice thickness product<br />

for Antarctica’s coastal region<br />

and will also provide observational<br />

datasets for computer<br />

simulations that will allow better<br />

forecasting.<br />

Ex Rugby Player Finding Support ADVERTISEMENT<br />

KORU NUTRITION<br />

Keith would describe<br />

his younger self as<br />

definitely a ‘man’s man’.<br />

Work hard, play harder<br />

and ‘shake it off’ if need<br />

be. Looking back Keith<br />

realised that those early<br />

hay days were great.<br />

“I loved being out<br />

on the footy field. Big<br />

tackles, sprinting from<br />

ruck to ruck and then<br />

back again, pushing<br />

hard on the side of the<br />

scrum; nothing like a bit<br />

of healthy competition to<br />

get the blood pumping.”<br />

A lifetime of exercise,<br />

a good diet and making<br />

sure that he wore knee<br />

supports, Keith lived<br />

fairly well. However for<br />

Keith, although health<br />

is key, he has still gone<br />

through the normal day<br />

to day of a physically<br />

demanding job.<br />

An old footy mate<br />

asked one day if he had<br />

tried Koru FX from Koru<br />

Nutrition. <strong>The</strong>y said<br />

they’d been using the<br />

cream to support their<br />

joints and muscles.<br />

“I said I would give it<br />

a go, so he threw me a<br />

bottle.”<br />

Koru FX cream by Koru<br />

Nutrition has become<br />

NZ’s #1 joint and muscle<br />

support cream. With over<br />

two and a half thousand<br />

5 star reviews, Koru FX<br />

is showing itself to be a<br />

favourite in many New<br />

Zealand households<br />

“It smelt good, and<br />

felt great. It is just nice<br />

to go about my day, be<br />

it carrying every bag of<br />

shopping in for my wife<br />

in one go, off to aqua<br />

aerobics and swimming<br />

or just larking about;<br />

Koru FX gives me the<br />

confidence I need, to<br />

continue to live an active<br />

life.”<br />

Always read the label and use as directed. If symptoms persist, see your healthcare professional. Koru Nutrition, Christchurch.<br />

Containing high quality<br />

oils like calendula,<br />

arnica, manuka and<br />

peppermint, along with<br />

twelve others, Koru FX<br />

provides the perfect<br />

formulation for fast<br />

acting joint and muscle<br />

support.<br />

ECan may reassess<br />

water testing in bay<br />

• By Tony Simons<br />

PUBLIC PRESSURE has<br />

resulted in Environment<br />

Canterbury agreeing to<br />

reconsider how it grades<br />

swimming sites and<br />

manages water quality<br />

issues at Corsair Bay in the<br />

future.<br />

It follows confusion and<br />

upset over a decision in<br />

October<br />

to grade<br />

the bay<br />

“unsuitable<br />

for swimming”<br />

for<br />

Vicky<br />

Southworth<br />

the entire<br />

summer<br />

because of<br />

high faecal bacteria readings<br />

over the previous five<br />

years, which residents say<br />

should have been ignored.<br />

Testing for all of January<br />

shows the water quality at<br />

the bay was good to excellent.<br />

ECan councillor for<br />

Christchurch South/<br />

Owhanga Vicky<br />

Southworth confirmed it is<br />

rethinking how grades are<br />

calculated, how often water<br />

is tested, and what warning<br />

WATCH OUT: A health warning sign at Corsair Bay.<br />

signs are appropriate.<br />

Southworth met with<br />

ECan staff and Cosair Bay<br />

swim group representative<br />

Leith Cooper last week.<br />

She said a paper will be<br />

presented at the next ECan<br />

water and land committee<br />

meeting, where she expects<br />

possible changes will be<br />

discussed.<br />

She said the public is<br />

welcome to attend.<br />

After meeting with<br />

Southworth, Cooper said<br />

he was impressed with her<br />

responsiveness to the issue.<br />

He encourages the public<br />

to attend the ECan meeting<br />

to voice their concerns.<br />

“Corsair Bay is a<br />

significant and safe swim<br />

site for Christchurch and<br />

ECan needs to be more<br />

responsive,” he said.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y need to be testing<br />

the water daily and putting<br />

up better signage to give<br />

people confidence to make<br />

their own decisions about<br />

whether or not to swim<br />

there.”<br />

Cooper said ECan also<br />

needed to review the<br />

“unsuitable for swimming<br />

grading” as soon as<br />

possible.<br />

“We have several more<br />

months of swimming left<br />

this season and we need<br />

that grading lifted before<br />

<strong>The</strong> new name also<br />

aligns the organisation<br />

with the other 62 units<br />

that make up Coastguard<br />

NZ, he said. It reflects the<br />

strong relationship the organisation<br />

has with Coastguard<br />

Coastguard Sumner will<br />

continue to operate exactly<br />

Nicholls said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> organisation provides<br />

a full-time volunteer<br />

maritime search and<br />

rescue service, as well as<br />

education in safe boating,<br />

water safety and first aid.<br />

It also covers a large area<br />

– from near the mouth of<br />

the Hurunui River, across<br />

all of Banks Peninsula and<br />

12 miles out to sea.<br />

It has been busy recently,<br />

with five call-outs in January,<br />

assisting local boaties,<br />

swimmers and surfers who<br />

have got into difficulty.<br />

<strong>The</strong> organisation has<br />

about 30 volunteers who<br />

can respond to a call-out at<br />

any time. Its three vessels<br />

are equipped to handle<br />

almost all rescue missions.<br />

Coastguard Sumner also<br />

works closely with surf life<br />

saving clubs.<br />

It has a rich history,<br />

starting in 1898 with the<br />

first permanent rescue<br />

service and dedicated lifeboat,<br />

appropriately named<br />

Rescue. Despite the name<br />

change, Coastguard<br />

Sumner will retain strong<br />

connections to its heritage<br />

as Sumner Lifeboat, and<br />

will continue to promote<br />

its proud heritage.<br />

Davis Cup singles players<br />

will be named tomorrow<br />

• By Diane Keenan<br />

NEW ZEALAND will confirm<br />

their two singles players<br />

tomorrow for the Davis Cup tie<br />

against Bulgaria at Wilding Park<br />

over the weekend.<br />

Team captain Kelly Evernden<br />

will chose from Rubin Statham,<br />

Ajeet Rai and KP Pannu ahead<br />

of the world group playoff 1.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y will be joined by doubles<br />

specialists Michael Venus and<br />

Artem Sitak.<br />

Statham, who is world No<br />

454, has won 28 Davis Cup<br />

singles matches, more than any<br />

other New Zealander, and is<br />

likely to be named to play two<br />

of the singles rubbers. However,<br />

Rai (world No 455) and Pannu<br />

(world No 574) both impressed at<br />

the ASB Classic and its wildcard<br />

tournament.<br />

Rai defeated world No 95 Taro<br />

Daniel from Japan before losing<br />

in three sets to Brazilian Thiago<br />

Monteiro, while Pannu looked<br />

solid in the wildcard tournament<br />

but went down to eventual ASB<br />

Classic winner Richard Gasquet<br />

in the first round.<br />

Play will start at noon on<br />

Saturday with the first two<br />

singles rubbers, followed by the<br />

doubles and the reverse singles<br />

on Sunday.<br />

<strong>The</strong> tie will be a sell-out on<br />

both days, Tennis Canterbury<br />

general manager Bevan Johns<br />

said.<br />

“Tickets were snapped up as<br />

soon as they went on the market.<br />

<strong>The</strong> last Davis Cup tie played<br />

here was in 2016 so it’s very<br />

exciting that the international<br />

men’s team competition is returning<br />

to the city,” Johns said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Bulgarian team, which<br />

will be without top-ranked<br />

player Grigor Dimitrov, who has<br />

been as high as world No 3, will<br />

still provide a stern challenge,<br />

with second-ranked player<br />

Dimitar Kuzmanov ranked No<br />

182 in the world.<br />

<strong>The</strong> winner advances to a<br />

world group 1 tie in September<br />

with the loser relegated to world<br />

group 2. Tennis Canterbury patron<br />

official racket stringer for the tie,<br />

“I’ve always said that Christchurch<br />

wonderful ties played here,<br />

particularly in the 1970s and 80s,<br />

when we were in the top tier of<br />

the competition. Our best performance<br />

was in 1982 when after<br />

defeating Spain at Wilding Park,<br />

we went on and made the world<br />

group semi-finals.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> New Zealand team of<br />

Chris Lewis, Onny Parun, Russell<br />

Simpson and Bruce Derlin<br />

lost 3-2 to France in the semis<br />

on clay courts in France. New<br />

Zealand’s proud record in Davis<br />

Cup includes making the quarter<br />

finals in 1981, 1983 and 1990.<br />

Ralfe, who has strung rackets<br />

at the past 23 Davis Cup ties in<br />

Christchurch, has the honour<br />

of “not missing one of those ties<br />

and stringing the rackets of all<br />

the winning teams.”<br />

“We have also had some very<br />

good players coming here for<br />

Davis Cup, including France’s<br />

Yannick Noah, Yugoslavia’s<br />

Goran Ivanisevic and Australians<br />

Tony Roche, John Alexander,<br />

Pat Rafter and the world’s<br />

former top double’s combination<br />

of Todd Woodbridge and Mark<br />

Woodforde.”<br />

Most of the memorable ties<br />

were played on the centre court<br />

at Wilding Park, but it also went<br />

indoors on artificial surfaces at<br />

Pioneer Stadium and the central<br />

city, King Edwards Barracks,<br />

which unfortunately leaked,<br />

Ralfe says.<br />

Rafter was a favourite with<br />

the ball kids that year (1993-94)<br />

when at the end of the tie, he<br />

stayed and hit with them.<br />

“I still have a letter from an<br />

Australian team captain John<br />

Newcombe thanking me for<br />

stringing the team’s rackets and<br />

saying the job I did was as good<br />

as anywhere in the world. That<br />

was special.”<br />

Jacobs (left) blitzed 11 sixes<br />

and 12 fours for Sydenham on<br />

surpassed the previous record<br />

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

Sam Noster in the 2015/16 season.<br />

It was Jacobs third century<br />

of the season in the rain-affected<br />

47-over match. OBC won the<br />

toss and elected to bowl first,<br />

but faced a strong batting performance<br />

from Jacobs and Ryan<br />

Wallace (52 off 75 balls) who<br />

combined for a 191-run partnership.<br />

Jacobs was eventually run-out<br />

towards the end of the innings,<br />

as Sydenham finished on 315/5.<br />

In response, OBC began well<br />

with Australian import Dylan<br />

Hunter (104 off 89 balls) bringing<br />

up his first century for his<br />

new club. But Sydenham’s bowlers<br />

closed out the match quickly,<br />

taking OBC’s last six wickets for<br />

just 40 runs, restricting them to<br />

273.<br />

the under-17 FIFA World Cup in<br />

Nicholas Murphy, Jackson<br />

Foord all played an integral<br />

part in the New Zealand team<br />

that won the Oceania under-17<br />

championships on Saturday after<br />

a nail-biting 1-0 win over New<br />

Caledonia, which also qualified<br />

for the World Cup.<br />

Murphy and Cole currently<br />

play for Christchurch United,<br />

while Cashmere Technical’s<br />

Sugahara and Foord are also<br />

products of the Christchurch<br />

United Academy. <strong>The</strong>ir presence,<br />

along with former Cantabrian<br />

Luke Supyk, shows a big shift in<br />

national team selection. Most<br />

national squads over recent years<br />

included only one or two or no<br />

South Island players at all.<br />

<strong>The</strong> change reflects the<br />

hard work Christchurch clubs<br />

have put in to improve youth<br />

development. Former All White<br />

Aaron Clapham, who lives in the<br />

city, is also the current assistant<br />

of the under-17 side – and has<br />

helped identify talented local<br />

players. Murphy, Cole, Sugahara<br />

and Foord all featured in the<br />

final. Goalkeeper Foord claimed<br />

man of the match after pulling<br />

off several stunning saves after<br />

New Zealand was reduced to 10<br />

men for the final 20 minutes.<br />

Foord also won the golden<br />

glove for best goalkeeper and<br />

was named in the team of the<br />

tournament. Murphy was part<br />

of the epic defensive effort in the<br />

final minutes. “My immediate<br />

reaction was just run and hug<br />

my nearest teammate. I was just<br />

filled with joy and to celebrate<br />

something as big as the win with<br />

my new brothers was a very<br />

U17 footballers score World Cup spot<br />

special and heartfelt moment for<br />

me.” After narrowly beating New<br />

Caledonia 3-2 in their opening<br />

game, thanks to a hat-trick from<br />

former Waimak United and<br />

Nomads United player Supyk,<br />

New Zealand then thrashed<br />

American Samoa 11-0.<br />

Murphy captained the side<br />

into the knockout stages of the<br />

tournament. “Playing with the<br />

fern on my chest was one hell of<br />

an achievement, but that feeling<br />

of walking my team out and<br />

captaining my side, my country,<br />

is a feeling that will never<br />

leave me. I was unbelievably<br />

honoured and proud to do so,”<br />

said Murphy. <strong>The</strong> team then<br />

faced a well-organised Vanuatu<br />

in the quarter-finals, but won<br />

in the 90th-minute after Supyk<br />

converted a penalty.<br />

In the semis, New Zealand<br />

comfortably beat host nation Fiji<br />

4-1 to qualify for the upcoming<br />

under-17 World Cup then won<br />

the final to claim the trophy for<br />

the eighth time in a row. Murphy<br />

said the team had to dig deep in<br />

the final. “<strong>The</strong> boys worked superhard<br />

and put in shifts day-in-dayout<br />

on and off the pitch, so for me<br />

it was well deserved.”<br />

Duff eyes up another national title<br />

• By Allan Batt<br />

THE NEW Zealand Sprintcar<br />

Championship at Ruapuna<br />

Speedway this weekend has<br />

attracted 46 competitors – the<br />

second largest in the event’s<br />

52-year history.<br />

Former winner Jamie Duff has<br />

been somewhat inconsistent this<br />

summer, showing lightening fast<br />

pace but having a string of minor<br />

mechanical issues. Last weekend<br />

the Christchurch driver returned<br />

to form, finishing second in the<br />

New Zealand Sprintcar Grand<br />

Prix at Cromwell, but he is under<br />

no illusions how tough this<br />

weekend’s racing will be.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 32-year-old is keen to grab<br />

another national championship<br />

win, but said it’s a tough<br />

proposition.<br />

“You really need everything<br />

to go your way. <strong>The</strong> 10-lap heat<br />

races will be tough, and every<br />

point on offer is vital. One<br />

mechanical issue, an untimely<br />

flat tyre or getting caught up in<br />

someone else’s crash can make it<br />

a tough road into the finals, but<br />

we have found plenty of speed<br />

in the car, and with the next<br />

nationals in Christchurch being<br />

six or seven years away we really<br />

want to give this a good crack,”<br />

Duff said.<br />

A 30-year veteran, Canterbury<br />

speedway driver Dave Kerr has<br />

made the switch to sprintcars<br />

and is upbeat about taking part.<br />

PSYCHED: Former national sprintcar champion Jamie Duff is keen to reignite his form at Ruapuna this weekend.<br />

Said Kerr: “(Sprintcars) are<br />

big fields, they are big powerful<br />

cars to drive, and a hell of a buzz<br />

too. <strong>The</strong>re is a real neat bunch of<br />

people involved in the class too.<br />

Most of my team were ready for<br />

a change and a challenge – this<br />

is it.”<br />

Early in his career, Kerr<br />

won the national minisprint<br />

championship before moving up<br />

into the powerful midget cars.<br />

He went on to become the most<br />

successful South Island driver in<br />

that section of all time.<br />

Ruapuna club president Rob<br />

Roxburgh is confident that<br />

despite only two South Islanders<br />

winning the championship in<br />

the past 37 years – Bruce Hobbs<br />

in 1986 and Duff in 2015 – there<br />

is enough ability in the mainland<br />

ranks to get onto the podium.<br />

One driver who has returned<br />

home after spending most of<br />

the summer racing in Auckland<br />

is Canterbury’s Matthew<br />

Leversedge. He says the<br />

northerners may not have the<br />

advantage they normally do.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> weather up north has<br />

made it a really disrupted<br />

campaign. We are rapt to be back<br />

at Ruapuna. I’m pretty familiar<br />

with how the track changes as<br />

the two nights of racing go on,”<br />

Leversedge said.<br />

Roxburgh said other<br />

Canterbury drivers who have<br />

showed great form recently<br />

include Caleb Baughan, Steve<br />

Duff, Jayden Dodge and Connor<br />

Rangi.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y are all young and fast.<br />

Several years ago Connor was<br />

the second top qualifier for the<br />

championship at Cromwell. He<br />

registers to his old hometown of<br />

Nelson but he’s put in plenty of<br />

laps at Ruapuna,” Roxburgh said.<br />

“I think he has the temperament<br />

to do well and he is being<br />

mentored by American Jonathan<br />

Allard.<br />

“He’s really talented. We know<br />

that Caleb and Steve won’t be<br />

left wondering. <strong>The</strong>y will give it<br />

there all while Jayden was very<br />

unlucky to be stripped of third<br />

place in last weekend’s Grand<br />

Prix on a technical issue. I<br />

wouldn’t write these guys off.”<br />

Roxburgh said three years of<br />

planning has gone into making it<br />

a memorable occasion.<br />

•<strong>The</strong> racing will be held<br />

on Saturday and Sunday<br />

from 6pm<br />

TRAINING PROGRAMME<br />

WeeK four: upping the pace<br />

This week we will step it up a bit more. <strong>The</strong> beginners group will progress to the stage that most of the walking is replaced by<br />

slow jogging and the intermediate group are starting to incorporate some efforts in zone 2. Remember that zone 1 is perceived<br />

as an easy effort which you can maintain for very long periods of time. In zone 2 you will get slightly puffed but you can still have a<br />

conversation. You go from jogging in zone 1 to a proper running movement in zone 2 with the main difference being that zone<br />

1 has a slower rhythm, staying low to the ground where as zone 2 brings extra spring in your step combined with an increase in<br />

leg turnover (stride rate). <strong>The</strong> intermediate group introduces zone 2 pace as 2 minute repetitions alternated by 2 minute easy<br />

jogging. Zone 2 to 3 will be the recommended pace for the City to Surf event for the intermediate group while the beginners<br />

will mainly stay in zone 1 and 2.<br />

<strong>The</strong> difference between walking and jogging is not only decided by the rhythm of the movement but also how and where you<br />

land your feet. When jogging most efficiently you land on your mid-foot under the centre of gravity of the body, which, in the<br />

upright position, is located in the pelvis just behind the midline of the body. With a slight forward lean of the body you can use<br />

gravity to pull you forward while your legs keep you upright and push you in a forward direction. Walking is done in a more<br />

upright position and most of us land on our heel first and roll over the outside of our foot before pushing off with our forefoot. It<br />

helps to keep your core (lower abdomen, back, pelvis and hips) well supported by pushing your pelvis slightly forward. This will<br />

stop you from “sitting” and over striding.<br />

To achieve this goal you<br />

need to develop some<br />

awareness around the<br />

basic requirements of<br />

exercising for health<br />

and fitness. First and<br />

foremost this has to do<br />

with 3 key principles:<br />

1. How often do you train? To<br />

improve your level of health and<br />

fitness you will need to aim for 4<br />

sessions per week. 2 or 3 sessions per<br />

week will only maintain what you have<br />

and 1 session per week is definitely not<br />

sufficient.<br />

2. How long are your sessions? <strong>The</strong><br />

duration of your sessions will generally build<br />

towards between 30 and 50 minutes with<br />

one longer session of 60-80 minutes.<br />

3. What is the right intensity to train at? <strong>The</strong><br />

good thing about the programme is that all<br />

your runs will be done at submaximal pace,<br />

also called conversation pace. That means a<br />

pace where you can still talk. If you can’t talk<br />

you are going too fast and you are likely to<br />

come to a grinding halt sooner or later.<br />

This programme and accompanying information are written<br />

as a guide only. If you are concerned about your health at<br />

any stage please undergo a health check with your GP.<br />

tIP of the WeeK<br />

<strong>The</strong>re is no need to bring fluids with you<br />

during the sessions as you are not exercising<br />

long and hard enough to cause serious<br />

dehydration. Even on warm (north-west)<br />

days it is sufficient to have a glass of water<br />

or juice just before you go out. You can<br />

re-hydrate on your return home, again with<br />

water and/or a glass of fruit juice. Taking<br />

fluids during exercise is generally not<br />

required until you start to exceed 90 minutes<br />

on a normal day and 60 minutes on a hot<br />

day (temperatures above 25 degrees).<br />

Advanced Care Plans<br />

Have you thought about what care you<br />

want to receive when you reach the end<br />

of your life? During the course of our<br />

lives we expend an enormous amount<br />

of energy planning where we want to<br />

live, what we want to achieve during our<br />

lifetimes, but we don’t give much time or<br />

thought to what we would like to happen<br />

at the end of our lives.<br />

If you have a major health event that<br />

deprives you of the ability to make your<br />

wishes known to your family or to the<br />

health professionals responsible for your<br />

care, taking some time now to discuss<br />

what you want at the end of your life will<br />

provide vital guidance if your loved ones<br />

have to make those decisions for you.<br />

An Advance Care Plan or Advance<br />

Directive (“Advance Care Plan”) is a<br />

way to help you communicate to your<br />

loved ones your wishes about your future<br />

health care and will help your loved<br />

ones and your health care providers to<br />

understand what is important to you<br />

and what treatment you do or do not<br />

want in the event that you are unable to<br />

communicate with those around you.<br />

Under the Code of Health and<br />

Disability Services Consumers’ Rights<br />

you have the right to use an Advance<br />

Care Plan to make your health care<br />

wishes known. Examples might be the<br />

desire not to receive blood transfusions,<br />

be resuscitated or kept alive with the use<br />

of life support systems.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Code gives a person, who<br />

has capacity to make decisions for<br />

Thursday <strong>February</strong> 2 2<strong>02</strong>3 <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> 27<br />

themselves, the right to make an Advance<br />

Care Plan. When deciding on whether<br />

to follow your Advance Care Plan, your<br />

health care professional will try to ensure<br />

that:<br />

• you had capacity at the time the<br />

Advance Care Plan was made;<br />

• you made your Advance Care Plan of<br />

your own free will;<br />

• you were informed and understood<br />

the decisions you were making; and<br />

• your Advance Care Plan applies to<br />

the current circumstances, whatever they<br />

may be.<br />

To assist the treating team considering<br />

these factors, you are encouraged to<br />

complete the section in the Plan dealing<br />

with your treatment and care choices<br />

with your health care professional and<br />

you both then sign and date this. <strong>The</strong><br />

completed Plan is entered onto an<br />

electronic database which is available to<br />

staff if you go into hospital or to St Johns<br />

if you require assistance.<br />

Talking about your Advance Care Plan<br />

with your loved ones and in particular<br />

your attorney for care and welfare, is<br />

an important conversation. If you do<br />

not have enduring powers of attorney<br />

in place this would be a good time to<br />

complete these deeds as an integral part<br />

of your estate planning.<br />

At Harmans we have a specialist seniors<br />

team dealing with estate planning, give<br />

Phillipa Shaw a call on 03 379 7835 to<br />

arrange an appointment to discuss your<br />

situation.<br />

SENIORS’ LIVING LIFE<br />

Suzuki with European flair and finesse<br />

When you think of Suzuki<br />

motor vehicles of all shapes and<br />

sizes, you immediately think of<br />

their origin from Japan.<br />

Well, all models are<br />

designed and engineered in<br />

Japan, but Suzuki has a global<br />

manufacturing infrastructure<br />

that sees it source variants from a<br />

wide periphery.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Suzuki S-Cross is built in<br />

europe, hungary to be exact, and<br />

I must say it is all quality and feels<br />

just so nice to be in.<br />

<strong>The</strong> S-Cross has just entered a<br />

new lifecycle, its shape is bolder,<br />

sharper and has a lot more<br />

presence on the road. It has also<br />

received interior attention that<br />

makes it completely state-of-theart,<br />

it is modern fresh and fitted<br />

with all of the character you want<br />

when buying a new-age SuV.<br />

I’ve long been a fan of the<br />

S-Cross, early in its production it<br />

arrived with the 1.6-litre engine<br />

out of the Swift Sport and it was a<br />

real cracker, I remember vividly a<br />

trip I took in it to Queenstown to<br />

watch an annual Gibbston Valley<br />

rock concert.<br />

In recent years the S-Cross has<br />

shared its four-cylinder engine<br />

with others in the Suzuki line-up,<br />

it’s a 1.4-litre turbocharged unit<br />

that first appeared here in Baleno.<br />

This engine is also noteworthy,<br />

it’s a strong unit at 103kW and<br />

220nm, but its biggest claim to<br />

fame is that of its economy.<br />

Well that’s no surprise, Suzuki<br />

has long been revered for its<br />

ability to produce feisty, free-revving<br />

engines that also sip fuel in<br />

acceptable amounts in this age<br />

where costs to fill up are forever<br />

on everyone’s mind. In part, the<br />

small capacity engines Suzuki<br />

build so very well hark back to<br />

the company’s motor-cycle heritage,<br />

gleaning decent horsepower<br />

out of small cylinders.<br />

even though the S-Cross’ engine<br />

likes to work freely, it doesn’t<br />

need to be hunting towards<br />

the top end. one of the major<br />

benefits from today’s turbocharging<br />

technology is the ability to<br />

produce maximum torque from<br />

low in the rev band.<br />

In the S-Cross’ case peak power<br />

is developed at just 5500rpm,<br />

while torque is maximised<br />

between 1500 and 4000rpm.<br />

SUZUKI S-CROSS: Fresh face for 2<strong>02</strong>3.<br />

<strong>The</strong>se figures mean the engine<br />

doesn’t need to work hard, it is<br />

a sweet unit that is honest and<br />

quiet.<br />

Acceleration is ushered in willingly<br />

and swiftly when required<br />

(0-1000km/h in 8.8sec) but such<br />

is the sultry way the turbo boost<br />

arrives it’s hard to tell there is<br />

forced induction.<br />

Drive is channelled through a<br />

traditional six-speed automatic<br />

transmission, if you want to be<br />

involved in the gearing process<br />

there is a paddle-shift sequential<br />

system.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are also variable drive<br />

modes, there are no surprises<br />

here, they are snow, normal and<br />

sport, the latter livens throttle<br />

response considerably.<br />

In terms of fuel use, the Suzuki<br />

claims 6.2-litre per 100km on a<br />

combined cycle average, which<br />

was very close to the 7l/100km<br />

figure showing constantly on<br />

the trip computer. At 100km/h<br />

the engine turns over slowly at<br />

1750rpm in sixth gear providing<br />

a 5l/100km instantaneous return.<br />

<strong>The</strong> evaluation car was what<br />

Suzuki describes as an All-Grip<br />

variant, it tops the line-up at<br />

$41,990. Put simply, that means<br />

drive is carried to all four-wheels,<br />

normally it’s the front wheels that<br />

do the work, power sent rearwards<br />

when traction up front is<br />

compromised.<br />

<strong>The</strong> spring and damper rates<br />

are such that the suspension is<br />

firm enough to keep the tyres in<br />

constant contact with the surface<br />

when undulations off-road are<br />

• Price – Suzuki S-Cross JLX,<br />

$41,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4300mm; width, 1785mm;<br />

height, 1585mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

front-wheeldrive,<br />

1373cc, 103kW,<br />

220Nm, six-speed<br />

automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 8.8sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 6.2l/100km<br />

presented, yet there is a good<br />

compliance when comfort is required<br />

on a long on-road journey.<br />

I covered more distance in<br />

the S-Cross that I had intended,<br />

showing up to 280km on the<br />

odometer when I returned it to<br />

the dealership. Most of that was<br />

on highway travel and I felt fresh<br />

and relaxed after a long inland<br />

journey.<br />

When spending a lot of time<br />

inside the car you become quite<br />

familiar with the layout of the<br />

controls and the specification<br />

built into the vehicle. I can report<br />

the S-Cross wants for nothing, it<br />

gets all the modern kit for comfort,<br />

convenience and safety.<br />

Suzuki builds cars for the<br />

masses and it sells well here. I’m<br />

sure with its dramatic new looks<br />

it will continue to lure those who<br />

want something just that little bit<br />

different from their SuV.

Building in a housing subdivision<br />

invariably means the developer will require<br />

you to submit a landscaping plan along<br />

with your house design, to be approved<br />

before building commences.<br />

Just as important as considering<br />

the features for your home will be<br />

your outdoor setting. Indoor/outdoor<br />

requirements will influence your choice<br />

of house design and how it will be sited<br />

on the section for a sunny yard and best<br />

protection from prevailing winds like the<br />

easterly. Having a second courtyard area<br />

offering shelter from the north-west wind<br />

is also an advantage in Selwyn.<br />

A well thought out landscape plan will<br />

also incorporate off-street parking space<br />

for vehicles while ensuring your home<br />

is attractive from the street. You might<br />

want to factor in parking for a caravan,<br />

motorhome or extra vehicles as well as a<br />

turning circle for safe turning and exiting<br />

your property (a legal requirement for<br />

back sections).<br />

<strong>The</strong> developer will only want to see a<br />

landscape outline for the part of your<br />

property which will be on view from the<br />

street.<br />

When choosing the design for your<br />

home, address where you want hard<br />

surfaces (driveway, paths and patios),<br />

lawn, play areas and garden beds so it is<br />

suitably positioned on the section. Even if<br />

not all hard surface areas are completed at<br />

the end of the build, knowing where they<br />

will be located will be helpful.<br />

If your build is nearing completion,<br />

autumn is a good time to sow grass as the<br />

cooler morning and evening dew assists<br />

growth. As winter descends on us, ready<br />

throughout lawn is a better Christchurch<br />

option at least at the front<br />

of the section, which the developer will<br />

require to be completed before moving in.<br />

Landscaping enhances<br />

new & existing homes<br />

Landscaping presents a good first<br />

impression, attracting buyers.<br />

(another good time for seeding a lawn) if<br />

you are happy to put up with the mud over<br />

winter.<br />

When selling an existing home, putting<br />

effort into landscaping your yard could add<br />

value by presenting a good first impression<br />

and attracting buyers.<br />

You need not rip out overgrown<br />

established plants. Selective culling and<br />

pruning can make a huge difference<br />

to the look of a garden. Avoid hacking<br />

everything down low. Instead take out<br />

sprawling branches and thin shoots,<br />

leaving a solid trunk; planting flowers like<br />

lobelia, primula, pansies and polyanthus<br />

underneath for impact. Add a layer of<br />

mulch and spray the lawn for weeds then<br />

follow up with lawn fertiliser to give a lush<br />

green look.<br />

<strong>The</strong> first thing people see is your home’s<br />

exterior – the cladding, colours and<br />

landscaping. Putting effort into these<br />

features has the potential to add value to<br />

new and existing properties. A garden<br />

need not be masses of work. Planning and<br />

choosing the right plants for the location<br />

and your lifestyle can create a relatively<br />

low maintenance outdoor setting while<br />

enhancing your home.<br />
