Strongman<br />

lifts his<br />

game<br />

to the<br />

next level<br />

PERSONAL TRAINER Malcolm<br />

Dixon-Searle is now ranked<br />

among the strongest men in<br />

Australasia.<br />

The 21-year-old finished second<br />

at the globally renowned<br />

weightlifting competition,<br />

Australia’s Strongest International<br />

Showdown, at Yapeen in central<br />

Victoria.<br />

“It was such a life-changing<br />

and humbling experience,”<br />

Dixon-Searle said.<br />

The competition pits some of<br />

the strongest men and women<br />

from across the world against<br />

each other to battle it out in five<br />

rigorous events: The Ukraine<br />

deadlift, overhead medley, frame<br />

carry conans wheel, backwards<br />

drag arm over arm, and atlas<br />

stone run.<br />

“To go up against top athletes<br />

on the world stage takes incredible<br />

discipline and endurance. I<br />

trained over six hours a day to<br />

achieve the elite strength needed<br />

to compete at an international<br />

level,” Dixon-Searle said.<br />

STATS: Drivers on a restricted licence are seven times more<br />

likely to be involved in a fatal or serious injury crash than<br />

other drivers, said city council transport operations manager<br />

Stephen Wright. PHOTOS: NEWSLINE, MARJORIE COOK/ODT<br />

Crash Bash aims to keep drivers safe<br />

THE DANGERS of open roads<br />

and driving to the conditions are<br />

the focuses of this year’s Crash<br />

Bash programme.<br />

The Crash Bash road safety<br />

education programme is<br />

rolling out across Christchurch<br />

schools with the aim of keeping<br />

teenagers safe on the open road.<br />

The programme tours secondary<br />

schools as an interactive<br />

stage performance with actors<br />

from the Court Theatre.<br />

This year, Crash Bash<br />

celebrates its 30th year touring<br />

schools, with the focus on the<br />

dangers of open roads and<br />

driving to the conditions. The<br />

performance is targeted at Year<br />

11 to 13 students.<br />

“Poor handling and speed are<br />

our contributing factors in fatal<br />

crashes involving young drivers<br />

and many of these crashes occur<br />

on the open road. So that is<br />

why we have decided to make<br />

it a focus of this year’s Crash<br />

Bash,” said city council transport<br />

operations manager Stephen<br />

Wright.<br />

“We want<br />

young people to<br />

be aware of the<br />

risks that come<br />

with driving<br />

too fast and to<br />

understand that<br />

the choices they<br />

make when they<br />

Stephen<br />

Wright<br />

get behind the wheel of a car<br />

have consequences – potentially<br />

life changing consequences,” he<br />

said.<br />

“The sad reality is that drivers<br />

on a restricted licence are seven<br />

times more likely to be involved<br />

in a fatal or serious injury crash<br />

than other drivers.<br />

“Data also shows that young<br />

restricted drivers are more at<br />

risk of having a serious crash in<br />

the first six to twelve months of<br />

driving solo on their restricted<br />

licence than at any other time in<br />

their lives.<br />

“We want our young drivers<br />

to stay safe on the roads. Crash<br />

Bash will hopefully make them<br />

think about how they are driving<br />

and how they can avoid risky<br />

situations.”<br />

Crash Bash is funded by the<br />

city council and developed by the<br />

Court Theatre in collaboration<br />

with Canterbury Police.<br />

Landslide win for Jones in by-election<br />

ALI JONES IS back in local<br />

body politics after winning<br />

the by-election vacancy in the<br />

Innes Ward by a<br />

landslide.<br />

Jones polled<br />

1807 votes, almost<br />

three times as<br />

many as the closest<br />

contender, former<br />

city councillor<br />

Mike Davidson,<br />

who was ousted<br />

from the council<br />

Ali<br />

Jones<br />

table in last October’s elections.<br />

Jones will be sworn in at the<br />

next Waipapa Papanui-Innes-<br />

Central Community Board<br />

meeting on Thursday, March 9.<br />

The by-election was prompted<br />

when The People’s Choice<br />

Shreejana Chhetri​ resigned<br />

soon after being<br />

elected. The<br />

by-election<br />

cost ratepayers<br />

$75,000.<br />

Jones, a<br />

public relations<br />

consultant, also<br />

missed out on<br />

a council seat<br />

in the October<br />

elections by a slim<br />

Shreejana<br />

Chhetri<br />

eight votes to now-deputy mayor<br />

Pauline Cotter.<br />

Jones told media she was<br />

happy with her by-election<br />

winning margin, which gave her<br />

“a very strong mandate”.<br />

The final votes are expected<br />

to be declared by<br />

today.<br />

Just over 20<br />

per cent of Innes<br />

electors voting in<br />

the by-election,<br />

the progress<br />

results are:<br />

• Ali Jones,<br />

Independent, has<br />

1807 votes;<br />

Mike<br />

• Mike Davidson, For a Safer,<br />

Greener Innes, has 638 votes;<br />

• Mark Wilson, Independent<br />

Voice for Innes, has 367 votes;<br />

• Moazzem Hossain has 283<br />

votes;<br />

• Mahlon Saumalu,<br />

Independent, has 180 votes;<br />

• Harrison McEvoy,<br />

Independent, has 85 votes;<br />

• Garry Neale, Independent,<br />

has 37 votes.<br />

Said city council electoral<br />

officer Jo Daly: “With this<br />

extraordinary vacancy filled<br />

it means Christchurch City<br />

Council’s elected representation<br />

is complete for the first<br />

time since October’s local<br />

elections.<br />

candidates putting themselves<br />

Dixon-Searle was selected<br />

to represent New Zealand at<br />

the international showdown<br />

after finishing third in the<br />

80kg division at the 2022<br />

New Zealand Strongest Man<br />

competition in Hamilton.<br />

“As one of the only 10 Kiwis<br />

to qualify for the international<br />

competition, I’m proud to hold<br />

the runner-up title for New<br />

Dixon-Searle’s academic<br />

I’m currently working towards<br />

my level 6 diploma in human<br />

“I started at NZIS in 2020<br />

standards, and turn my love for<br />

sport into a career.<br />

“I’m grateful to NZIS for<br />

supporting my education<br />

journey and sponsoring me to<br />

Orchestra’s Music Trails enchants<br />

THE SILENCE was broken at<br />

Fendalton Library as orchestral<br />

performers staged the first in<br />

series of interactive concerts.<br />

The Christchurch Symphony<br />

Orchestra has partnered with<br />

Christchurch City Libraries<br />

to perform 11 free concerts,<br />

especially aimed at children aged<br />

2-6.<br />

Their 45-minute concert in<br />

Fendalton last week featured a<br />

wind quartet, which combined<br />

song, dance and storytelling<br />

to entertain the young crowd.<br />

CSO principal bassoon and<br />

head of programme development<br />

Selena Orwin believes the<br />

concerts are a great opportunity<br />

for young children to see<br />

orchestral instruments up close<br />

and join the musical fun.<br />

“We want to be as relevant<br />

as we can to the community<br />

and engage as many different<br />

types of people.<br />

“And concerts are not the<br />

only way of doing this. We<br />

love to get out and about in the<br />

community,” Orwin said.<br />

The CSO musicians will<br />

continue Music Trails with<br />

concerts at different libraries<br />

throughout the year.<br />

• By Jaime Cunningham<br />

A DOMINANT South Brighton<br />

claimed the top overall club title<br />

at the southern region surf life<br />

saving champs over the weekend.<br />

The club finished on 783<br />

points, ahead of Taylors Mistake<br />

in second (500 points) and<br />

Sumner in third (150) after the<br />

two-day event at New Brighton<br />

beach.<br />

Surf Life Saving New Zealand<br />

southern sports manager Luke<br />

Smith said South Brighton’s<br />

success in the beach events was<br />

a “point of difference” for the<br />

club.<br />

Rosie Falcous dominated<br />

the beach events for South<br />

Brighton, winning the under-17<br />

and under-19 beach flags and<br />

relay.<br />

The New Zealand Junior Black<br />

Fin also won the beach sprints at<br />

the under-19 and open level.<br />

South Brighton’s Skye Trist<br />

was once again a standout in the<br />

under-17 category, winning the<br />

board race, surf race, ski race,<br />

run swim run, and iron events,<br />

as well as four team and relay<br />

events.<br />

Her board rescue teammate,<br />

Matilda Nolan, also impressed<br />

over the two days. She was in the<br />

winning team in five events in<br />

both the under-17 and under-19<br />

categories, including the<br />

under-17 board rescue with Trist.<br />

Smith said the weekend was<br />

a “great event” in the lead-up to<br />

the TSB New Zealand surf life<br />

saving championships on<br />

“We had some really great<br />

conditions for an awesome<br />

A word from Ilam MP<br />

Sarah<br />

Pallett<br />

As I write this, we are in a National<br />

State of Emergency in response to<br />

Cyclone Gabrielle, and rescue and<br />

clean up efforts are underway across<br />

the North Island. My thoughts are<br />

with all those affected by the extreme<br />

weather events of the past few weeks,<br />

especially those who have lost loved<br />

ones, homes, and livelihoods.<br />

We here in Canterbury have seen our<br />

fair share of tragedy, with the twelfth<br />

anniversary of the 2011 earthquake<br />

a poignant reminder this week of the<br />

devastation our city has seen.<br />

I know there will have been many here<br />

in Canterbury trying to get hold of<br />

loved ones cut off without reception.<br />

While emergency response teams<br />

worked as hard as they could to get<br />

communications back online, it has<br />

been an anxious time for a lot of us.<br />

Community organisations have moved<br />

quickly to provide flood relief and<br />

to support whānau and an all-of-<br />

Government response is already well<br />

underway. Our Government’s recent<br />

$11.5 million community support<br />

package will help to provide immediate<br />

relief for individuals, families, and<br />

households.<br />

In the coming weeks, we will have a<br />

better idea of what is needed where,<br />

but the initial response has been<br />

extraordinary. We will continue to<br />

support communities through this<br />

unprecedented event, as well as the<br />

recovery and rebuild.<br />

While the full impact of Cyclone<br />

Gabrielle is yet to be realised, we will<br />

get through this together.<br />

Finally, I’d like to acknowledge our<br />

emergency responders. They’ve<br />

put in the hard yards and put their<br />

lives on the line in the service of<br />

their communities. We all owe you<br />

enormous gratitude, thank you.<br />

Making the most of the garden’s bounty<br />

Summer produce is<br />

in abundance at this<br />

time of year, but there’s<br />

no need to let it go<br />

to waste, writes the<br />

team at Love Food<br />

Hate Waste<br />

COURGETTES, tomatoes, corn,<br />

and stone fruits are a few of our<br />

favourite summer produce and at<br />

this time of the year they can be<br />

found readily available in stores,<br />

or your gardens may be full of<br />

ready-to-harvest produce.<br />

Make the most of these<br />

seasonal fruits and vegetables<br />

and turn them into delicious<br />

meals, tasty desserts or freeze or<br />

preserve them so you can enjoy<br />

them at any time of year. Here<br />

are some ideas:<br />

- Courgettes: Use as pizza<br />

topping; add into pasta or use<br />

as lasagne sheets; add to salads,<br />

risotto, and soups; make fritters,<br />

cake, ice cream, stuffed courgette,<br />

vegie bake, ratatouille, kebabs;<br />

grill on the bbq, or pickle.<br />

- Tomatoes: Make a salsa,<br />

stuffed tomatoes, pasta sauces,<br />

tomato sauce, or freeze to turn<br />

into a soup or to add to stews at<br />

another time.<br />

- Corn: Make fritters, corn<br />

ribs, succotash, soup or chowder,<br />

salad, cheesy corn, creamed<br />

corn, corn bread, add to stews<br />

and quiches, grill them to make<br />

elotes (grilled Mexican corn),<br />

or for a sweet dish make corn<br />

pudding.<br />

- Stone fruits: Turn into sweet<br />

or savoury sauces like peach<br />

sauce or cherry compote, make<br />

jam, preserve them, or enjoy in<br />

desserts such as pies, tarts, or a<br />

quick danish (see the recipe on<br />

this page).<br />

Late summer also means back<br />

to school and back to wondering<br />

how to make the most of the uneaten<br />

or half-eaten sandwiches,<br />

wraps, fruits, veges, or crackers<br />

brought home in lunch boxes.<br />

In many cases these foods can<br />

be saved so here are some of our<br />

ideas on what you can do:<br />

- Carrot sticks and corn<br />

cobs: If you are making a stir fry,<br />

stew, frittata, bolognese, or other<br />

mince dish for dinner add the<br />

veges in or save in a container or<br />

freezer bag and add to the meals<br />

another time.<br />

- Fruit: This can be frozen<br />

even if it is half eaten or has a<br />

few bites. Cut around the bitten<br />

area and cut into smaller pieces<br />

if needed and place in a freezer<br />

bag. Turn into smoothies, cakes,<br />

sorbets, or fruit filling for pies<br />

and crumbles.<br />

- Leftover sandwiches: Can<br />

be toasted in the sandwich press<br />

and eaten for dinner or as weekend<br />

lunch with soup. (However,<br />

if the original sandwich contained<br />

ham or chicken it is best<br />

not to keep them as the heat may<br />

have compromised their safety.)<br />

- Crackers: Save them and<br />

SEASONAL PRODUCE:<br />

Make a salsa with ripe<br />

tomatoes or a quick danish<br />

with plentiful peaches.<br />

PHOTOS: ODT, GETTY<br />

place in a sealed container and<br />

once you have enough you can<br />

crush them and use them as you<br />

would use breadcrumbs. Stale<br />

crackers can also be revived by<br />

heating in the oven and they will<br />

be crisp again, ready to eat as<br />

they are.<br />

Quick peach danish<br />

Ingredients<br />

6 medium-sized peaches, thinly<br />

sliced<br />

¼ cup brown sugar<br />

2 Tbsp plain flour<br />

½ tsp cinnamon<br />

pinch of salt<br />

2 sheets puff pastry, thawed<br />

Optional<br />

¼ tsp nutmeg<br />

¼ cup sliced almonds<br />

1 egg, beaten<br />

Directions<br />

Heat the oven to 200degC<br />

(180degC fan bake), line a tray<br />

with baking paper or a baking<br />

mat.<br />

Mix sliced peaches, brown<br />

sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg,<br />

and salt together in a bowl.<br />

Cut pastry sheet into nine<br />

squares, place on tray, brush<br />

with egg (if using).<br />

Arrange peach slices on the<br />

pastry, about four slices per<br />

pastry. Sprinkle sliced almonds<br />

on top.<br />

Bake for 15 minutes, reduce to<br />

180degC (160degC fan bake) and<br />

bake for a further 10 minutes.<br />

You may want to rotate the tray<br />

if it is browning unevenly.<br />

Once cooked, cool on the tray<br />

for five minutes then transfer to<br />

a wire rack.<br />

Tip: Try this with apples,<br />

nectarines, apricots, pears, or<br />

even pineapples.<br />

NZ Real Estate Institute January Report | Year starts slowly<br />

but more activity being reported.<br />

Jen Baird, REINZ CEO<br />

The Real Estate Institute of New Zealand’s<br />

(REINZ) January 20<strong>23</strong> figures show house<br />

prices have declined but at a slower rate than<br />

seen previously.<br />

REINZ Chief Executive, Jen Baird says prices<br />

continue to ease but the pace of the decline is<br />

steadying, and the market has glimpses of a new<br />

life as January’s seasonally adjusted data shows.<br />

“January is traditionally a slower month as<br />

sellers and buyers are on holiday. This month is<br />

no exception, although intensified in Auckland<br />

by relatively poor weather, with the least<br />

number of sales since records began (excluding<br />

April 2020 during the country’s lockdown) at<br />

943 sales. The rest of the country has also seen<br />

a record low for the month with less than 3,000<br />

sales (2,759) nationally.”<br />

High interest rates, the ability to secure finance,<br />

commentary around a looming recession and<br />

this being election year can be added to factors<br />

for slow decision making from buyers. As a<br />

result, properties are spending longer on the<br />

market with 53 being the median days to sell<br />

for January 20<strong>23</strong>, 16 days longer compared to<br />

January 2022.”<br />

The median sale price has decreased nationally<br />

by 13.3% overall to $762,500 and decreased<br />

9.3% for New Zealand excluding Auckland to<br />

$679,000. The REINZ House Price Index (HPI)<br />

showed an annual decrease of 13.9% in the<br />

value of residential property nationwide which<br />

is in line with the sale price changes seen.<br />

Regional median house prices continue to<br />

decrease across the board, with Auckland<br />

dropping under $1,000,000 (to $940,000) in<br />

January 20<strong>23</strong> for the first time in two years.<br />

The exception is three regions which saw<br />

marginal increases: Gisborne (+3.8%), Taranaki<br />

(+0.8%) and the West Coast (+5.3%). These<br />

were the only regions to see a rise in median<br />

price compared to January last year.<br />

Nationally new residential listings decreased<br />

16.0% year-on-year from 7,912 in January<br />

2022 to 6,646 in January 20<strong>23</strong> and increase<br />

of 28.9 month on month from December<br />

2022. New Zealand excluding Auckland saw a<br />

decrease of 10.4% year on year from 5,512 in<br />

January 2022 to 4,635 new listings in January<br />

20<strong>23</strong> and a 29.4% decrease from 3,381 listings<br />

month on month from December 2022.<br />

“The flip side to this is the seasonal effect<br />

of January. In seasonally adjusted terms,<br />

this month’s numbers show a January that<br />

performed better than expected. The sales<br />

counts are down for January 20<strong>23</strong> compared<br />

to December 2022 for Auckland by 31.5%.<br />

When the seasonality is removed, the sales<br />

count numbers show Auckland performed<br />

19.4% better than expected when compared<br />

to December.”<br />

“Reports of more activity in the market are<br />

growing “Agents in many areas are reporting<br />

more attendance at open homes, more interest<br />

online and even more multi-offer situations.<br />

Inventory has increased 39.4% year-on<br />

year, now sitting at 27,732 properties which<br />

provides plenty of choice for buyers. Add to<br />

that prices that have eased over the last 12<br />

months, and some less bad economic news<br />

coming out recently, it seems there are more<br />

buyers active in the market. <strong>February</strong> and<br />

March data will tell us if they choose to act”<br />

adds Baird.<br />

“This is interesting data and does indicate a<br />

slowing of the decline. The coming months<br />

will be telling as the country braces for more<br />

activity both in the weather and the property<br />

market,” concludes Baird.<br />

“Salespeople around the country say owner<br />

occupiers remain active, and that there has<br />

been increased interest in out-of-town buyers<br />

looking in different regions. Sellers are tending<br />

to be more realistic and will usually meet the<br />

market through negotiation — however, many<br />

remain cautious with properties taking longer<br />

to sell, and investors sparse.”<br />
