Thursday <strong>June</strong> 1 <strong>2023</strong> <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong><br />

• By Heidi Slade<br />

CITY councillors will vote<br />

next week whether to tear up<br />

a controversial central city<br />

cycleway.<br />

<strong>The</strong> cycleway, on Park Tce<br />

near the Armagh St bridge,<br />

caused an uproar when it was<br />

put in without Mayor Phil<br />

Mauger and city councillors<br />

knowledge.<br />

City councillor Sam<br />

MacDonald told <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong><br />

yesterday a notice of motion<br />

would be put to next week’s<br />

council meeting in a bid to take<br />

the cycle lane out and return<br />

Park Tce’s northbound side to<br />

two lanes.<br />

MacDonald said due process<br />

for the cycleway was not<br />

followed.<br />

“It needs to be pulled up,” he<br />

said.<br />

MacDonald, Mauger and city<br />

councillors James Gough, Kelly<br />

Barber, Victoria Henstock and<br />

Aaron Keown are behind the<br />

notice of motion.<br />

<strong>The</strong> motion looks to be<br />

another showdown between the<br />

right and left factions on the city<br />

council.<br />

<strong>The</strong> right, which includes<br />

Mauger and the city councillors<br />

involved in the notice of motion,<br />

have questioned the amount of<br />

money being spent on cycleways<br />

in Christchurch; while the left<br />

leaning Labour-aligned People’s<br />

Choice have been generally pro<br />

cycleway.<br />

Meanwhile, the city council<br />

has apologised to the Waipapa<br />

Papanui-Innes-Central<br />

Community Board for failing<br />

to tell the board a survey on the<br />

cycleway would be going live<br />

online.<br />

communications and<br />

engagement Katy McRae said<br />

Housing density: Council likely to press on<br />

• By Tony Simons<br />

THE CITY council says it<br />

will forge ahead with a multimillion<br />

dollar planning process<br />

enabling more housing density<br />

in Christchurch.<br />

This is despite news at<br />

the weekend National has<br />

withdrawn support for the<br />

bi-partisan legislation mandating<br />

intensification across the<br />

country.<br />

<strong>The</strong> consultation and hearings<br />

process around Plan<br />

Change 14 is budgeted to cost<br />

Christchurch ratepayers $2.8<br />

million.<br />

Submissions closed recently<br />

and city council staff are now<br />

sorting and categorising them,<br />

ready for the next stage of the<br />

process.<br />

About 900 submission were<br />

received, of which 87 per cent<br />

came from individuals, with the<br />

rest from organisations. <strong>The</strong>y<br />

are scheduled to be considered<br />

by an Independent Hearings<br />

Panel in October and November,<br />

after the general election.<br />

While National has said it<br />

will scrap the legislation if it<br />

becomes the government, city<br />

council head of planning and<br />

consents John Higgins rejected<br />

a suggestion the process can be<br />

stopped or paused.<br />

“Any pause of the hearings<br />

would mean council couldn’t<br />

meet statutory timeframes<br />

set by the Government in the<br />

City cycleway debacle<br />

set for a showdown<br />

CONTROVERSIAL: Councillors will vote on Wednesday<br />

whether the Park Tce cycleway will stay or go.<br />

PHOTO: NEWSLINE<br />

staff sent an apology to the<br />

community board on Tuesday.<br />

“Our usual practice would be<br />

to give elected members a heads<br />

up about any major projects,<br />

associated consultation and<br />

external communications, such<br />

as Newsline and social media,”<br />

she said.<br />

Community board member<br />

Ali Jones said the city council’s<br />

lack of communication left her<br />

gobsmacked.<br />

“What little I know, I know<br />

from media,” Jones said.<br />

“It’s important that us elected<br />

members, we know what’s<br />

Resource Management Act. If<br />

there is a law change, council<br />

would consider its options at<br />

the time,” he said.<br />

National has announced it<br />

intends to reverse its policy on<br />

mandatory medium density.<br />

Leader Christopher Luxon<br />

said the party got it wrong. It<br />

announced at the weekend it<br />

will give councils the choice of<br />

opting out and developing new<br />

subdivisions to meet housing<br />

demand instead.<br />

HAVE YOUR SAY: Should<br />

the Park Tce cycleway be<br />

torn up? Email your views<br />

in 200 words or less to<br />

going on.”<br />

Board chair Emma Norrish<br />

agrees council staff should have<br />

notified the board.<br />

“We should have been given a<br />

heads up,” she said.<br />

“Council staff have agreed that<br />

we should have been told . . .<br />

<strong>The</strong>y have apologised and looked<br />

to rectify it.”<br />

Councillor and board member<br />

Victoria Henstock was aware<br />

the city council would seek<br />

feedback, but was surprised at<br />

the timing due to the pending<br />

notice of motion.<br />

“I was aware feedback would<br />

be sought but was unsure about<br />

what the format and platform<br />

it would be and when it would<br />

occur. I was surprised with the<br />

timing of the online survey,<br />

given the pending notice of<br />

motion,” she said.<br />

Councillor and community<br />

board member Jake McLellan<br />

said the survey did not come as<br />

a surprise.<br />

Airport to buy electric<br />

fire engine<br />

Christchurch Airport has<br />

Truck to operate at an airport.<br />

Head of aviation operations<br />

PEOPLE LIVING close to a<br />

housing complex they thought<br />

was going to be for over-50s are<br />

angry it will be a Kāinga Ora<br />

development instead.<br />

<strong>The</strong> site, next to the<br />

Northwood shopping centre, was<br />

originally set to be a 27-dwelling<br />

development for over-50s, but<br />

residents in the area have just<br />

been told it will now be social<br />

housing instead.<br />

<strong>The</strong> situation mirrors another<br />

Kāinga Ora development at the<br />

Copper Ridge subdivision in<br />

Halswell.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> revealed last week a<br />

petition has failed to stop the<br />

complex being built. Halswell<br />

residents only learned it would<br />

be a social housing complex after<br />

flyers were delivered to nearby<br />

homes. But the foundations for<br />

the Copper Ridge development<br />

were already laid when Kāinga<br />

Ora took formal ownership on<br />

April 5.<br />

Meanwhile, a similar<br />

situation in Hastings saw<br />

residents campaign against<br />

an intensive housing complex<br />

being developed for Kāinga Ora<br />

in their suburb. Yesterday the<br />

residents appeared to have won<br />

their campaign, after indications<br />

the developer will withdraw its<br />

resource consent application to<br />

CONSTRUCTION: <strong>The</strong> 27-dwelling development is being<br />

built near the Northwood shopping centre.<br />

build 10 dwellings, including<br />

four two-storey units, in place of<br />

two houses.<br />

Consent for the Northwood<br />

project was granted to a<br />

developer six years ago – but<br />

only after written approval was<br />

obtained from eight neighbours.<br />

“We were told it would be for<br />

over-50s,” said resident Ann<br />

Sanders.<br />

“We were fine with it, and<br />

signed an agreement with the<br />

city council, allowing it to go<br />

ahead.<br />

“We even joked that it would<br />

be suitable for myself and<br />

husband, Dave, as it would be<br />

right next door to our daughter,”<br />

she said.<br />

But early last month, residents<br />

learned the development had a<br />

new owner – Freeman Homes.<br />

<strong>The</strong>n 12 days ago, Kāinga<br />

Ora flyers announced it was<br />

purchasing the entire complex<br />

off Freeman Homes.<br />

Kāinga Ora said the<br />

homes would be for its<br />

customers who are over-50 –<br />

but also for households with at<br />

least one person, of any age, who<br />

qualified for a permanent health<br />

benefit.<br />

worry residents<br />

“That was never mentioned to<br />

us when we were asked to agree to<br />

the development,” said Sanders.<br />

Records show a second consent<br />

was applied for in <strong>June</strong> 2020, just<br />

a month before Freeman Homes<br />

purchased the land. Construction<br />

on the development started last<br />

year.<br />

Kāinga Ora regional director<br />

Liz Krause confirmed it signed<br />

an agreement six months ago to<br />

purchase the completed complex<br />

off Freeman Homes. Residents<br />

found out on April 20.<br />

Freeman Homes director<br />

Mark Freeman said he could not<br />

comment on the development,<br />

referring all<br />

questions to<br />

Kāinga Ora.<br />

Said Krause:<br />

“We have<br />

engaged with the<br />

local community<br />

Liz Krause<br />

. . . via the<br />

letterbox drop,<br />

which provided<br />

details on the development, who<br />

will live in the homes and the<br />

ongoing construction work.”<br />

Other nearby residents, who<br />

were never consulted, are also<br />

concerned.<br />

Sandra Jenkins said she has<br />

real worries about a significant<br />

number of people with serious<br />

mental health issues being in<br />

the complex, particularly with a<br />

primary school just 600m away.<br />

“I feel terrible because it sounds<br />

like I don’t want these people in<br />

my backyard,” she said.<br />

“If Kāinga Ora could just assure<br />

us people with serious mental<br />

health problems will be getting<br />

around-the-clock support, then<br />

no problem.<br />

“But we know that won’t be<br />

the case with our mental health<br />

system being in a crisis,” she said.<br />

Krause said Kāinga Ora<br />

will “play a role in ensuring<br />

our customers have a support<br />

network and are connected to the<br />

right services to enable them to<br />

live well in their communities.”<br />

Belfast Primary School is<br />

located just north of the complex.<br />

Principal Sue Elley said the<br />

school was not informed about<br />

the development, but she was not<br />

too concerned.<br />

“A number of our children<br />

probably come from families<br />

where there are some mental<br />

health issues,” she said.<br />

Meanwhile, Sanders is delivering<br />

her own flyer this week inviting<br />

residents to share concerns<br />

they may have.<br />

She also hopes to organise a<br />

meeting to talk about what, if<br />

anything, residents can do.<br />

Stage one of the complex is expected<br />

to be occupied in November<br />

then two further stages would<br />

be completed in February and<br />

<strong>June</strong> next year. Access would be<br />

off Main North Rd and Halligan<br />

Place, which is a cul-de-sac.<br />

“This is almost exactly what<br />

happened recently to Copper<br />

Ridge Halswell residents,” said<br />

Sanders, referring to the multiunit<br />

project in Halswell Junction<br />

Rd, also accessed off a cul-de-sac,<br />

recently revealed to be a Kāinga<br />

Ora complex.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 7900 sq m property at<br />

Northwood is next to what<br />

was originally an 11ha orchard<br />

block before it was developed for<br />

housing in the 1990s, promoted<br />

as “Pentland – a development for<br />

Belfast”.<br />

• By Tony Simons<br />

COPPER RIDGE residents are<br />

being made to “feel guilty and<br />

worthless”.<br />

That was the message one<br />

resident got when attending<br />

a Kāinga Ora drop-in session<br />

to discuss the new 17-unit<br />

social housing development in<br />

Halswell.<br />

Two information sessions<br />

were hosted by Kāinga Ora after<br />

residents petitioned for work to<br />

stop at the Copper Ridge<br />

development to give time<br />

for a conversation with<br />

the local community on<br />

the impacts it might have.<br />

Kāinga Ora staff hosted<br />

the sessions but many<br />

residents left unhappy and<br />

sent their feedback to <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong>.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re is nothing you can do,”<br />

said one resident.<br />

Another said: “<strong>The</strong>y don’t care<br />

about the community. <strong>The</strong>y had<br />

no solutions for us, basically<br />

telling us they are building as<br />

many social houses as they can,<br />

wherever they can and they<br />

don’t consult communities first.”<br />

Another resident said she<br />

asked a spokesperson if the<br />

NEWS 5<br />

Kāinga Ora ‘don’t<br />

care about<br />

the community’<br />

agency reference checks prospective<br />

tenants. “No We don’t,”<br />

she was told.<br />

“Even criminal background?”<br />

the resident replied.<br />

“We don’t check,” the spokesperson<br />

reportedly said.<br />

Another resident said: “Kāinga<br />

Ora needs to rewrite the principles<br />

on its website. <strong>The</strong>y told us<br />

they don’t consider the impact<br />

their developments might have<br />

on communities because that’s<br />

the council’s job. If the council<br />

approves them, they build<br />

them.”<br />

Said Kainga Ora acting<br />

regional director Tim<br />

Harvey (left): “It is not<br />

uncommon for some<br />

residents to have concerns<br />

Mama Hooch sexual assault survivor<br />

Sophie Brown shares<br />

her story of surviving<br />

sexual assault with<br />

reporter Katie Harris in<br />

the hope it might help<br />

others<br />

IT WAS the Friday night spot.<br />

Students on the cusp of real<br />

adulthood – loaded up on<br />

Scrumpy and Cruisers – lined up<br />

for hours to get in, spending the<br />

rest of the night maxing out debit<br />

cards at the bar and dancing<br />

until the lights turned on.<br />

In late 2<strong>01</strong>7 Sophie Brown, then<br />

19, was one of those students.<br />

Brown was naively unaware of<br />

the club’s dark underbelly until<br />

she was drugged and sexually<br />

assaulted in a nearby bathroom<br />

by the manager, Danny Jaz.<br />

More than five years on, Jaz<br />

and his brother, Roberto Jaz,<br />

were named as those convicted in<br />

April after a trial centred around<br />

the drugging and sexual assaults<br />

of more than 20 women at central<br />

city bar Mama Hooch.<br />

<strong>The</strong> men, aged 40 and 38, will<br />

be sentenced across two days in<br />

August for the offending, described<br />

in court as “predatory”.<br />

Brown is finally able to share<br />

her story after she successfully<br />

applied with the NZ Herald<br />

to have her automatic name<br />

suppression lifted, the first<br />

with her cheerleading teammates<br />

It was just like any other night<br />

their final days of freedom before<br />

exam stress kicked in.<br />

All her mates would be at<br />

Mama Hooch, it was only a fiveminute-or-so<br />

Uber from<br />

her flat in Ilam and one of the<br />

men behind the bar gave her<br />

free drinks, plus let her skip the<br />

line.<br />

Although she’d heard some<br />

rumours of “seedy stuff”<br />

happening there, she was<br />

unaware of just how dangerous it ‘<strong>The</strong>re are so many<br />

NEWS 7<br />

reclaims power by speaking out<br />

After the attack, Brown<br />

compartmentalised. Tried to<br />

move on, pretending nothing<br />

had happened, even attending a<br />

concert the following weekend.<br />

Although this worked publicly,<br />

when she was alone, she needed<br />

“constant distraction” to not<br />

think about it.<br />

Brown also felt sharing the<br />

assault with people would be a<br />

burden for them and she found it<br />

difficult to lean on those around<br />

her.<br />

“With this type of thing, it is<br />

very sensitive to bring up. You<br />

don’t know what other people<br />

have been through, you don’t<br />

know how it’s going to impact<br />

them.<br />

“I isolated myself completely. I<br />

isolated myself from myself, just<br />

by pushing it back and just acting<br />

like it didn’t happen.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> trauma of assault has<br />

spread across her life, relationships<br />

and friendships, impacting<br />

her in ways she’s still learning<br />

about.<br />

Trusting people, she said, is<br />

impossible.<br />

Over the years she’s seen<br />

herself oscillate between oversharing<br />

and being too open with<br />

others, to closing herself off and<br />

not sharing anything.<br />

“I have a therapist now, she’s<br />

amazing, but it took me five<br />

years to get there.<br />

GUILTY: Danny Jaz (left) and Roberto Jaz have been<br />

convicted of rape and a raft of other charges relating to<br />

the drugging and sexual assault of women at their family<br />

bar Mama Hooch and Venuti. PHOTO: NZ HERALD<br />

“And that was five years where<br />

I was either a really fun person,<br />

and, like, life of the party and<br />

probably a bit too loud but<br />

having a good time, to then like<br />

just this super depressed shell<br />

of a human that struggles to be<br />

in social situations and actually<br />

have meaningful connections<br />

with people.”<br />

Only now has she stopped<br />

blaming herself for the attack.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re are so many emotions<br />

tied up in the events, you know<br />

– the shame, the embarrassment,<br />

the guilt, the responsibility –<br />

and it’s so unfair that people<br />

have those feelings because of<br />

something someone else has<br />

done.”<br />

Prior to taking the stand,<br />

Brown learned her attacker had<br />

pleaded guilty to both sexual<br />

assault charges regarding her,<br />

and to 19 other sexual offending<br />

charges, meaning she was not<br />

questioned in court about the<br />

assault itself.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> things that I was<br />

questioned on was the amount<br />

I’d been drinking, how much<br />

I usually drunk, you know, all<br />

those kinds of things.”<br />

During the trial Judge Paul<br />

Mabey sat and listened to hours<br />

of lewd comments about what<br />

the men had done, wanted to do,<br />

dreamed of doing, and what they<br />

thought of specific women and<br />

their bodies.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y called each other “rapist”<br />

and joked about “roofies” –<br />

substances often used in drugfacilitated<br />

sexual assaults.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y shared photos of women<br />

– staff, bar patrons, young job<br />

seekers – and argued over who<br />

would have them.<br />

Police found footage on<br />

phones too – 14 minutes of crude<br />

footage of a woman being raped<br />

and assaulted made up of 11<br />

short snippets which the court<br />

heard were recorded without her<br />

knowledge.<br />

On April 26, Jaz was found<br />

guilty of stupefying Brown, with<br />

Judge Mabey finding him guilty<br />

of rape and a raft of other sex<br />

and stupefying charges.<br />

His brother was also found<br />

guilty of rape, sex charges,<br />

making an intimate recording<br />

and possession of objectionable<br />

material.<br />

Brown, who has waited years<br />

to say her piece, said she is doing<br />

so for both herself and other<br />

survivors out there.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re’s so much shame<br />

and embarrassment and guilt<br />

wrapped up in having this<br />

happen to you. So, part of me<br />

sharing it is that I’m in control<br />

of how it’s told and I think it’s<br />

helping me understand that I<br />

don’t need to be ashamed of<br />

it and of the fact that this was<br />

something that happened to me.”<br />

She also believes there is power<br />

in speaking out, even if it helps<br />

only one person.<br />

“Take it at your own pace<br />

and just be very, very gentle on<br />

yourself.<br />

“It’s just something that<br />

happened to you, it doesn’t<br />

define you.”<br />

hinders child<br />

IMPACT:<br />

Researchers<br />

found children<br />

who spent<br />

more time<br />

on screens<br />

throughout<br />

early childhood<br />

scored lower<br />

on measures of<br />

language and<br />

HIGHER LEVELS of screen<br />

time in early childhood<br />

have been linked to poorer<br />

developmental outcomes for<br />

children.<br />

Canterbury University child<br />

well-being research institute<br />

academics Dr Megan Gath and<br />

Professor Gail Gillon, with education<br />

Professor Brigid McNeill<br />

and health Professor Lianne<br />

Woodward, studied the impacts<br />

of screen exposure on early<br />

childhood development.<br />

Using data from more than<br />

6000 children collected in New<br />

Zealand’s largest longitudinal<br />

study, Growing Up in New<br />

Zealand, the researchers assessed<br />

children’s screen exposure at 9<br />

months, 2 years, 4 years, 5 years,<br />

and 8 years of age.<br />

<strong>The</strong> researchers measured the<br />

amount of time children spent on<br />

screens at different stages of childhood<br />

against language, early literacy<br />

and numeracy skills, and<br />

peer-related problems, while<br />

also considering factors such<br />

as maternal education and<br />

socio-economic status.<br />

Said Gath: “<strong>The</strong> children<br />

who spent more time on<br />

screens throughout early<br />

childhood – 9 months to<br />

5 years – scored lower on<br />

measures of language and<br />

educational ability and higher on<br />

parent-reported peer problems at<br />

ages 5 and 8.”<br />

Screen exposure included direct<br />

screen time spent watching<br />

TV or on a device, and indirect<br />

screen time where the child was<br />

in a room with the TV on but<br />

not actively watching.<br />

Gail<br />

Gillion<br />

Megan<br />

Gath<br />

Lianne<br />

Woodward<br />

<strong>The</strong> researchers also evaluated<br />

the impact screen time has on<br />

development due to reduced time<br />

participating in other activities.<br />

Gath said children with high<br />

levels of screen exposure were<br />

less likely to be engaging in more<br />

socially and sensory-rich types<br />

of childhood activities, such<br />

as playgroups, museums,<br />

parks, and cultural events.<br />

“Screen time is only one<br />

of many factors that determine<br />

children’s outcomes,<br />

but it’s one that is becoming<br />

increasingly prevalent. Early<br />

childhood is the time where<br />

parents have the most influence<br />

over children’s habits<br />

and is a critical period for<br />

setting healthy habits, so if we<br />

can reduce screen time in early<br />

childhood there can be positive<br />

flow-on effects that influence<br />

good health throughout their<br />

lifespan.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> 2<strong>01</strong>7 Ministry of Health<br />

Active Play Guidelines recommend<br />

no sedentary screen time<br />

for children younger than 2, less<br />

than one hour per day for children<br />

aged between 2 and 5, and<br />

less than two hours per day for<br />

children 5 years and older.<br />

Funded by the Ministry of<br />

Social Development through the<br />

Children and Families Research<br />

Fund, the UC research supports<br />

the continued implementation of<br />

the existing national screen time<br />

guidelines and could help inform<br />

future policies relating to screen<br />

use in early childhood.<br />

Police close in<br />

on smash and<br />

grab youths<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

POLICE HAVE made steps<br />

towards catching the youths<br />

who smashed their way into the<br />

Sumner Metro Mart.<br />

<strong>The</strong> shop’s owner and Retail<br />

NZ chief executive Greg Hanford<br />

criticised the investigation after<br />

police took 10 days to review<br />

CCTV footage of the break-in.<br />

It showed the faces of two the<br />

four youths who broke into the<br />

Wakefield Ave store on May 13,<br />

stealing mostly vaping products.<br />

On Tuesday, a police<br />

spokesperson said officers<br />

are following positive lines of<br />

inquiry after reviewing the<br />

footage.<br />

Canterbury police chiefs<br />

would not answer questions<br />

from <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> last week about<br />

why it took so long to review the<br />

footage and whether resourcing<br />

was the reason.<br />

<strong>The</strong> owner of the store has<br />

applied for the Government’s<br />

$4000 fog cannon subsidy. On<br />

Monday another $11 million was<br />

added to the scheme to meet the<br />

increase in demand. Of the 1664<br />

subsidy applications approved<br />

since February, 584 fog cannons<br />

have been installed and the<br />

Government said a further 3350<br />

will be subsidised by the end of<br />

this year.<br />

A WALTHAM resident’s dog<br />

was killed by a “vicious” pitbull<br />

whose owner ignored calls for it<br />

to be muzzled.<br />

<strong>The</strong> pitbull owner hastily took<br />

off with his pet following the<br />

attack, which led to the death of<br />

Jo Sturgeon’s alsatian-staffy cross<br />

Scotty.<br />

When Sturgeon woke up on<br />

Monday morning to the sound of<br />

screaming, she knew something<br />

was wrong.<br />

She leapt out of bed and raced<br />

outside to find Scotty lying on<br />

the ground having a seizure and<br />

covered in blood.<br />

Sturgeon noticed a man and<br />

his white pitbull fleeing the<br />

scene, making their way on to<br />

Ensors Rd. A witness, who had<br />

watched the brutal attack unfold,<br />

told her what had happened.<br />

<strong>The</strong> witness said Scotty was<br />

poking his head through a gate<br />

while the dog walker and pitbull<br />

were passing.<br />

<strong>The</strong> pitbull lunged at Scotty,<br />

taking hold of the dog’s jaw and<br />

locked on. It took the witness’s<br />

steel-cap boots to pry open the<br />

pitbull’s grip and release its hold.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> upper jaw was completely<br />

crushed, almost severed,”<br />

Sturgeon said.<br />

“I was covered in blood. He’s<br />

only a little guy, but the scene I<br />

came across, with seeing half his<br />

face hanging off, is something I<br />

Scotty was rushed to a vet but<br />

his injuries were too severe, and<br />

the decision was made to put<br />

him down. A devastated Sturgeon<br />

believes she saw enough of<br />

the owner to realise it was the<br />

same white pitbull with a history<br />

of lunging in the past.<br />

She said the dog and its owner<br />

frequently walked down Mac-<br />

Kenzie Ave where she lives and,<br />

when triggered, the pitbull regularly<br />

lunges at people and gates.<br />

“This guy has repeatedly been<br />

told to put the dog on a lead and<br />

FATAL: Jo Sturgeon raced outside to find her dog Scotty<br />

(above left) lying on the ground covered in blood after he<br />

was attacked by a “vicious” white pitbull.<br />

“Our landlady has constantly<br />

said to this owner that he needs<br />

to be putting a muzzle on his<br />

dog as it makes a constant point<br />

of lunging, but he never did and<br />

now our dog is dead.”<br />

SPCA and police were contacted<br />

by Sturgeon following the<br />

incident and the city council was<br />

also notified.<br />

Sturgeon is still looking for<br />

answers. She doesn’t know the<br />

person who walks the pitbull<br />

but was upset he fled the scene<br />

without checking on her dog’s<br />

condition.<br />

“He was only a wee little guy,”<br />

she said about her pet of eight<br />

years.<br />

City council bylaws state any<br />

person walking their dog on a<br />

footpath, berm or verge must<br />

have their pet on a leash.<br />

If an area of the city doesn’t<br />

have specific dog walking rules,<br />

it is an “under effective control”<br />

zone – where owners can have<br />

their dogs but must be aware of<br />

their actions and ensure they’re<br />

responsive to commands. <strong>The</strong><br />

Rapist, murderer told appeal against<br />

prison classification ‘lacks merit’<br />

• By Ric Stevens<br />

Richard Lyall Genge<br />

A RAPIST and murderer who<br />

has been in jail since 1995, and<br />

who has no money, has been<br />

told to pay $7000 if he wants to<br />

continue the latest in a series of<br />

lawsuits against the Department<br />

of Corrections.<br />

It is unlikely that Richard Lyall<br />

Genge will be able to find the<br />

money to keep his court battles<br />

going. A Court of Appeal judge,<br />

Justice Forrest Miller, says Genge<br />

is “impecunious”.<br />

Genge was jailed for life with<br />

a minimum non-parole period<br />

of 15 years after raping and<br />

murdering 22-year-old Anne<br />

Maree Ellens in the grounds of<br />

the Christchurch East School in<br />

Gloucester St in September 1994.<br />

While Ellens was heavily intoxicated,<br />

Genge and co-accused<br />

Samuel Kirner and Michael<br />

October took her into the school,<br />

raped her and savagely beat her<br />

to death. Her semi-naked body<br />

was found on the school steps<br />

the next morning.<br />

<strong>The</strong> three men were jailed<br />

in October 1995. Genge was<br />

19-years-old at the time.<br />

Since then, Genge has taken<br />

more than 20 appeals and applications<br />

to the courts about his<br />

conviction, sentencing and aspects<br />

of his treatment in prison.<br />

In 2<strong>01</strong>8, when he was ordered<br />

to pay more than $22,000 in legal<br />

costs for a previous court case<br />

that he lost, Genge was earning<br />

only $2.17 a week in prison allowances.<br />

In his recent lawsuits, Genge<br />

has been contesting his jail<br />

security classification as a low to<br />

medium-risk prisoner.<br />

His argument is that as a result<br />

of this classification, he is unable<br />

to participate in rehabilitative<br />

and reintegrative activities,<br />

which are available only for prisoners<br />

with a lower “minimum”<br />

risk classification.<br />

Because he is unable to do the<br />

courses, he argues, he has been<br />

unable to demonstrate to the<br />

Parole Board he should be freed<br />

from jail.<br />

In 2<strong>01</strong>9, he went all the way<br />

to the Supreme Court trying to<br />

reopen an appeal against his rape<br />

conviction he had abandoned 21<br />

years earlier. He was unsuccessful.<br />

In his latest court action,<br />

Genge argued the way his security<br />

clearance was determined –<br />

through a statistics-based measure<br />

known as the “RoC*RoI”<br />

– was unlawful.<br />

Roc*RoI is the Department of<br />

Corrections’ core risk assessment<br />

measure, and it stands for “risk<br />

of (re)conviction multiplied by<br />

risk of (re)imprisonment”.<br />

<strong>The</strong> tool draws on statistics<br />

from 133,000 criminal histories<br />

and uses 32 inputs drawn from<br />

an individual’s circumstances –<br />

such as age, the number of convictions,<br />

or total years in prison<br />

– to produce a number used to<br />

predict that individual’s risk of<br />

reoffending within five years.<br />

This report was produced<br />

by Open Justice – Te Pātītī,<br />

a Public Interest Journalism<br />

initiative funded by NZ on Air<br />

In submissions to the High<br />

Court in 2021, Genge said that<br />

his RoC*RoI score had been<br />

consistently higher than 0.7 since<br />

2003. This would suggest his risk<br />

of reoffending if released would<br />

be 70 per cent.<br />

He told the High Court that,<br />

because he had been sentenced<br />

to prison for more than five years<br />

for a sexual or violent offence,<br />

it was impossible for him to be<br />

reduced to a minimum security<br />

classification that would allow<br />

him to participate in rehabilitation<br />

programmes.<br />

However, the High Court<br />

found the use of the tool did<br />

not inevitably result in a lowmedium<br />

security classification<br />

for Genge. Corrections staff were<br />

able to override it.<br />

<strong>The</strong> court said this was confirmed<br />

by Genge’s own classification<br />

history, which had ranged<br />

from low to high and back to<br />

low-medium over the years.<br />

<strong>The</strong> High Court dismissed his<br />

application for a declaration that<br />

his rights had been breached,<br />

and for compensation.<br />

Genge then tried to take a<br />

claim about his prison classification<br />

and the consequences for<br />

him to the Court of Appeal, only<br />

to have a registrar decline his<br />

application for a waiver of any<br />

court costs to be paid if he lost<br />

the case in that court.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> registrar found the appeal<br />

lacks merit. I agree,” Justice<br />

Miller said.<br />

He declined an application for<br />

a review of the registrar’s decision<br />

and said security of $7060<br />

must be paid by <strong>June</strong> 16 if Genge<br />

wanted to continue.<br />

Money dries up in<br />

fight to stop feed<br />

barns being built<br />

• By Heidi Slade<br />

RESIDENTS fighting a<br />

controversial cattle farm in<br />

Kaituna Valley are short of the<br />

money needed to pay experts for<br />

a consent hearing.<br />

Little River Eco Collective has<br />

raised more than $5600 of the<br />

$19,000 it needs to argue against<br />

Wongan Hills Ltd’s application<br />

to build four planned<br />

composting feed barns.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Environment Canterbury<br />

hearing is set to take place in<br />

July.<br />

“It’s all about expert evidence<br />

at consent hearings and so, if we<br />

don’t reach our [fundraising]<br />

target, we won’t be able to<br />

challenge some of the claims<br />

that the farmer makes,”<br />

collective spokesperson Donald<br />

Matheson said.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> valley is not just<br />

occasionally flood prone, but<br />

according to the<br />

residents there are<br />

floods regularly<br />

and quite<br />

significantly.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> place<br />

where the barns<br />

are planned<br />

Donald<br />

Matheson<br />

will be under<br />

water and, if<br />

that happens,<br />

not only will the composting<br />

process . . . go anaerobic, it will<br />

start stinking and it will give off<br />

methane and stop composting<br />

efficiently,” he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> collective is concerned<br />

this poses threats to Te Waihora/<br />

Lake Ellesmere.<br />

“It would be disastrous,”<br />

Matheson said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> planned barns would<br />

house up to 2200 cattle, 24 hours<br />

a day.<br />

<strong>The</strong> collective want ECan<br />

to decline Wongan Hills<br />

Ltd’s application due to the<br />

environmental risk. It has<br />

presented two community<br />

petitions on the issue to ECan.<br />

Wongan Hills Ltd has applied<br />

for land use consent and a<br />

permit to discharge odour for up<br />

to four composting feed<br />

barns as part of an existing<br />

operation.<br />

<strong>The</strong> hearing in front<br />

of a panel of independent<br />

hearing commissioners<br />

will include evidence and<br />

presentations by Wongan Hills<br />

Ltd, submitters, such as the<br />

collective, and ECan.<br />

“We need both legal advice<br />

and also some specialist advice<br />

on modelling of flooding<br />

because that’s one of the key<br />

issues,” Matheson said.<br />

revealed<br />

THE CITY council has unveiled<br />

the concept design for the rebuild<br />

of the South Library and Service<br />

Centre building.<br />

Damaged in the February 22,<br />

2<strong>01</strong>1 earthquake, the facility has<br />

been made safe to occupy with<br />

temporary strengthening, but the<br />

city council is considering a rebuild<br />

to future-proof the building<br />

for decades to come.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> new concept design has<br />

been created by Ignite Architects,<br />

with input from other consultants,<br />

based on the first round<br />

of feedback from our loyal<br />

customers and from staff,” said<br />

city council head of libraries and<br />

information Carolyn Robertson.<br />

<strong>The</strong> existing facility will only<br />

close once a temporary library<br />

and service centre has been<br />

established. <strong>The</strong>re’s no start date<br />

for construction yet, and it’s estimated<br />

that a new build or repair<br />

would take about 18–24 months.<br />

Feedback is welcome on the<br />

design until Monday, <strong>June</strong> 26. It<br />

can be viewed in the foyer of the<br />

Rescuer comforts two survivors<br />

Monday will be the 20th<br />

anniversary of the Air<br />

Adventures plane crash<br />

near Christchurch Airport<br />

which claimed eight lives.<br />

Volunteer firefighter Rob<br />

Henderson (left) was the<br />

first to find the wreckage<br />

in thick fog. He talks to<br />

reporter Daniel Alvey<br />

about how the tragedy<br />

changed his life<br />

IT WAS a cold winter night in<br />

2003. Rob Henderson was at<br />

home just after 7pm on <strong>June</strong> 6<br />

when he got a call to assist with<br />

the search for an Air Adventures<br />

Piper Chieftain twin-engine<br />

plane which had crashed on<br />

approach to Christchurch<br />

Airport.<br />

His Rolleston Volunteer Fire<br />

Brigade crew arrived at the<br />

command point just after 7.30pm<br />

and was sent out to an area that<br />

hadn’t yet been searched.<br />

“It was a bit sketchy, I was<br />

absolutely packing myself<br />

because this is the first time I’d<br />

had to go out and search for a<br />

missing plane.”<br />

Henderson, another firefighter<br />

and a police officer were sent off<br />

in search of the plane, splitting<br />

up in a bid to find the wreckage.<br />

As Henderson walked across a<br />

SCENE: <strong>The</strong> Transport Accident Investigation Commission<br />

investigation found the crash was caused by pilot error.<br />

field, he heard what he thought<br />

were peacocks from a nearby<br />

farm.<br />

“I thought: ‘That was weird’.”<br />

He carried on into the foggy<br />

night. Even with his rescue torch,<br />

visibility was down to just a few<br />

metres.<br />

“I went over a bank and saw<br />

these trees down and thought<br />

this was a bit odd. I started<br />

seeing bits of aircraft scattered<br />

around, then I found it.”<br />

Henderson radioed it in: “I<br />

think I’ve found it, I’ve found it.”<br />

As he got closer, he saw a skid<br />

mark left behind by the plane<br />

as it came crashing down. <strong>The</strong>n<br />

he came to the edge of the fog<br />

and was confronted by a horrific<br />

scene.<br />

<strong>The</strong> sounds he thought<br />

were peacocks were actually<br />

shouts from the two survivors<br />

of the crash. <strong>The</strong> nine Crop<br />

and Food Research Lincoln<br />

management staff aboard the<br />

plane were returning from a oneday<br />

conference in Palmerston<br />

North. Seven of them and the<br />

pilot lost their lives, while two<br />

survived, after the plane crashed<br />

into trees about 2km from the<br />

runway.<br />

among wreckage of fatal flight<br />

A Transport Accident<br />

Investigation Commission<br />

investigation found the crash<br />

was caused by pilot error.<br />

<strong>The</strong> report said pilot Michael<br />

Bannerman descended lower<br />

than the<br />

minimum<br />

altitude for an<br />

instrument<br />

approach<br />

before the<br />

crash.<br />

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

survivors,<br />

Michael<br />

Bannerman<br />

Tim Lindley<br />

and Richard<br />

Barton,<br />

were still strapped into their<br />

seats facing each other when<br />

Henderson arrived at the crash<br />

scene. He reassured them help<br />

was on the way but did not have<br />

enough first aid experience to<br />

treat their serious injuries.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y were in and out of<br />

consciousness and more<br />

concerned about getting out of<br />

there,” Henderson said.<br />

“It was a hard situation to be<br />

in without any equipment or<br />

medical knowledge of what to<br />

do.”<br />

Barton suffered serious leg<br />

injuries, while Lindley badly<br />

damaged his right arm and right<br />

eye.<br />

Henderson searched the<br />

wreckage for more survivors but<br />

there were none. He said Lindley<br />

and Barton were aware their<br />

colleagues had died.<br />

“I think they knew they were<br />

the only ones. <strong>The</strong>y had been<br />

there for sometime, even before<br />

I arrived, and there was no other<br />

movement or talking.”<br />

Lindley and Barton’s seats<br />

had been flung clear of the main<br />

wreckage, while most of the<br />

deceased were at the back of the<br />

plane. Bannerman was found<br />

strapped into his seat in the<br />

cockpit.<br />

Henderson did his best to<br />

explain where he was to the<br />

other first responders – but the<br />

fog made it very difficult.<br />

“I ended up sitting with<br />

(Lindley and Barton) for a while<br />

because I couldn’t explain where<br />

I was, it was just that foggy.<br />

“It felt forever, but it was<br />

probably half an hour to an hour<br />

before someone arrived.”<br />

Henderson had only been a<br />

firefighter for 18 months when he<br />

was confronted with the scenes<br />

that night.<br />

“It was very difficult for a new<br />

person to the fire service to deal<br />

with when you have people all<br />

around you that are deceased.”<br />

Now 20 years on, Henderson<br />

can still visualise the scenes from<br />

that fateful night – the mangled<br />

wreckage, the smell of jet fuel.<br />

Those scenes changed his career<br />

path from working with youth<br />

offenders to becoming a flight<br />

medic with the Canterbury West<br />

Coast Air Rescue Helicopter.<br />

“It was that day and not<br />

knowing a whole lot of medical<br />

skills, I encouraged myself to<br />

learn.”<br />

By 2008, Henderson signed<br />

up with St John, completed his<br />

emergency medical technician<br />

training and became a volunteer<br />

ambulance officer. After two<br />

years volunteering, he decided to<br />

make it his full-time career. He<br />

packed up his family and moved<br />

to Auckland where he completed<br />

the remainder of his paramedic<br />

training. He was based out of<br />

the Mangere Ambulance Station.<br />

Lives lost<br />

Alistair Clough, 37<br />

Richard Finch, 41<br />

Desma Hogg, 42<br />

Katherine Carman, 35<br />

Andrew Rosanowski, 37<br />

He lived in Auckland for about<br />

four years before moving back to<br />

Christchurch, where he worked<br />

as a paramedic.<br />

He spent his days off on callouts<br />

for the Rolleston Volunteer<br />

Fire Brigade.<br />

About five years ago, he saw<br />

an advertisement for more Piper<br />

Chieftain plane flight medics<br />

to join helicopter crews after<br />

the Government increased the<br />

required number of paramedics<br />

on each chopper to two.<br />

“I ended up applying for it,<br />

never thought I’d get it. I ended<br />

up getting it, and since then it’s<br />

been all go,” Henderson said.<br />

From there he started training<br />

and learning a whole new set<br />

of skills to be a flight medic,<br />

including the basics of how to fly<br />

a helicopter if he ever needed to.<br />

Henderson has a dual role on<br />

the chopper.<br />

•From page 17<br />

When travelling to the<br />

rescue he assists the pilot with<br />

communications and navigation,<br />

and when on the scene he<br />

operates the winch, lowering<br />

either the paramedic or another<br />

responder down the line. Once<br />

the patient is aboard, he works<br />

with the other medics as they<br />

return to base.<br />

“I quite enjoy doing the<br />

winching side of things. It is a<br />

different aspect of the job.<br />

“You could be winching at<br />

6500ft but only doing 100ft<br />

winch.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> helicopter crews are<br />

called to assist with road<br />

crashes where major trauma is<br />

involved or to remote areas like<br />

farms, mountainsides or boats,<br />

unreachable by road.<br />

Henderson recalled one of his<br />

more memorable call-outs.<br />

“My first year on the helicopter<br />

we got sent down to Mt Cook<br />

to a hiking party. One of them<br />

had slipped off and gone down<br />

a few hundred feet in very<br />

mountainous terrain, and he was<br />

pretty banged up.<br />

“We ended up getting the alpine<br />

cliff rescue team from Mt Cook<br />

and winching them down. <strong>The</strong><br />

whole rescue took a few hours to<br />

complete.”<br />

Depending on the day,<br />

Henderson said he either has one<br />

of the best jobs in the world – or<br />

the worst. “<strong>The</strong>re can be the best<br />

view looking over the mountains<br />

to the Canterbury Plains at 6500<br />

to 7000ft. It can be a good job<br />

but it also can be a very hard job<br />

dealing with trauma and people’s<br />

lives.”<br />

As a father of four boys,<br />

Henderson said the hardest callouts<br />

are those involving kids.<br />

“When you are rocking up to<br />

a child that is critically ill or has<br />

major trauma, you get on with<br />

the job at the time, but afterwards<br />

you think that could have been<br />

my children, especially when they<br />

are around the same age so they<br />

have a bit of a soft spot for me.”<br />

Henderson said he has to<br />

remember to leave his emotions<br />

at the gate when he heads home<br />

for the day so those closest to him<br />

don’t get affected.<br />

‘Stubborn’ farmer sells<br />

Tarras land to airport<br />

A CENTRAL Otago farmer<br />

who once described himself<br />

as “accommodating” but<br />

“stubborn” has changed his<br />

mind and sold land to the<br />

Christchurch Airport.<br />

<strong>The</strong> airport has bought up<br />

hundreds of hectares of farmland<br />

in Tarras, about 25 minutes<br />

from Cromwell, over the past<br />

three years with the intention<br />

of building an international<br />

airport at the site.<br />

Farmer Phillip Parcell said<br />

in 2020 he would not sell 40ha<br />

to the city council-controlled<br />

airport as he did not need the<br />

money and was attached to the<br />

land where he was born.<br />

Unlike the farmland next<br />

door, his old-school oasis has<br />

not been cleared of trees to allow<br />

for irrigation pivots. It was the<br />

last farm in Tarras to stop using<br />

draught horses and the second<br />

to be subdivided in 1882.<br />

Parcell’s property was what<br />

remained of a much bigger<br />

sheep farm bought by his father<br />

John after he served in World<br />

War 2.<br />

But on Tuesday, airport chief<br />

strategy and stakeholder officer<br />

Michael Singleton said the company<br />

had bought the property<br />

off Parcell. It sits next to the<br />

750ha of land it already owned.<br />

<strong>The</strong> terms of the deal are confidential.<br />

Parcell would be able<br />

to continue occupying the land,<br />

Singleton said.<br />

Singleton said the airport<br />

would release information about<br />

where the runway to be built in<br />

the coming weeks.<br />

Horror car crash uncertainty: Tall<br />

Fern’s family feared she’d die<br />

• By Nathan Morton<br />

A TALL Fern star remains in an<br />

induced coma and her family<br />

reveal they feared she would die<br />

after suffering critical injuries in<br />

a horror car crash nine days ago.<br />

Mary Goulding is in intensive<br />

care at Christchurch Hospital<br />

after the crash in Rangiora on<br />

May 20.<br />

Her sister Georgia said the<br />

family is taking her recovery one<br />

day at a time but that things have<br />

improved over the past week.<br />

“We were really fearful she<br />

wouldn’t live for the first four<br />

days,” Georgia told the NZ<br />

Herald.<br />

“It was a really trying time,<br />

but then we reached the next<br />

stage where we were confident<br />

she would live and that’s where<br />

we’re at.”<br />

Georgia said the hospital’s goal<br />

is to slowly bring her sister out of<br />

an induced coma but the process<br />

will depend on Mary’s daily<br />

condition.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> uncertainty of everything<br />

else is so overwhelming, where<br />

it’s all about where we sit at the<br />

moment instead of being able to<br />

look to the future.”<br />

Mary is one of six siblings, her<br />

family is spread across the world<br />

– with siblings as far as London<br />

and Toronto.<br />

Georgia is based in Australia.<br />

She flew back to visit her Canterbury-based<br />

family the moment<br />

she learned of her sister’s situation.<br />

Most of Mary’s family has<br />

come together to connect and<br />

support each other over the last<br />

nine days, something that stems<br />

from a strong family bond.<br />

“We really did lean on each<br />

other hugely, especially in that<br />

first week,” said Georgia.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>n we’ve been pretty overwhelmed<br />

by the support from<br />

around the community - around<br />

the world really - she’s travelled<br />

everywhere and met so many<br />

people.”<br />

When Georgia thinks about<br />

her sister, she says the first thing<br />

all her siblings own is Mary is<br />

the favourite.<br />

“You’re not meant to have favourites,<br />

but she easily is as she’s<br />

so different to us.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> difference isn’t just<br />

physical, with the basketball star<br />

stretching to six feet tall compared<br />

with her shorter siblings,<br />

but in terms of personality.<br />

She’s known by her family as<br />

an individual with a calming and<br />

peace-making attitude towards<br />

life, taking everything at face<br />

value and never bad-mouthing<br />

others.<br />

Growing up, it was clear Mary<br />

had a competitive side – being<br />

the second youngest of six meant<br />

she had to learn how to win<br />

without the physical edge.<br />

“It was easy to beat her when<br />

you’re six or seven years older,<br />

but she’d find a way to compete,”<br />

said Georgia.<br />

“She’s clever, she has a real<br />

sports intuition and would work<br />

out how to beat you even if you’re<br />

ten times stronger. And then she<br />

did grow bigger and stronger.”<br />

Georgia reminisced over<br />

watching her sister fly down<br />

Auckland’s One Tree Hill on a<br />

plastic motorbike, using her bare<br />

feet to brake.<br />

“She had no awareness of<br />

pain.”<br />

But it was the drive and hunger<br />

inside of her that pushed her to<br />

go further in sports than her<br />

siblings, some of which already<br />

played highly competitively.<br />

As Georgia remembers, Mary’s<br />

path to professional basketball<br />

wasn’t straightforward. She had<br />

talent but was never considered<br />

a gifted prodigy, her success was<br />

self-made.<br />

After attending Rangiora High<br />

School, Goulding spent a year at<br />

Gillette College in Wyoming before<br />

being recruited by Fordham<br />

University.<br />

“She had to work really hard,<br />

even in university she did it the<br />

hard way by sitting on the bench<br />

and listening to coaches, finding<br />

her playing style,” she said.<br />

RECOVERY:<br />

Mary Goulding’s<br />

family is taking<br />

her recovery<br />

one day at a<br />

time, but things<br />

have improved<br />

over the past<br />

week.<br />

PHOTOS: NZ<br />

HERALD<br />

“She had that intuition for putting<br />

her body in the right places<br />

and doing off-the-ball things<br />

only people in the sport could<br />

recognise.”<br />

Mary grew into a fine defensive<br />

player, built from previous<br />

team mentalities that good<br />

defence will win you games.<br />

She travelled around the world,<br />

playing in Sweden for a time<br />

before competing in the WNBA<br />

– which Georgia said was a hard<br />

road for her sister.<br />

“It’s hard to live in the middle<br />

of nowhere,” she said.<br />

“She wasn’t a stand-out player<br />

but she didn’t turn away, and<br />

eventually she became an integral<br />

member of the squad.”<br />

Mary made her debut for the<br />

Tall Ferns in 2<strong>01</strong>9 and made nine<br />

appearances for the national<br />

team.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re’s an admiration from<br />

Georgia for how Mary applied<br />

herself, going from an outsider<br />

to one of the Tall Ferns’ integral<br />

defensive members.<br />

“Right up until the accident,<br />

I was talking to her trainer and<br />

she was working on her shooting<br />

technique, she was still refining<br />

things. That’s something that<br />

always impressed me – I love<br />

sport and played at a high level,<br />

but I never had the same drive<br />

that she had.”<br />

Mary’s family rode her highs<br />

and lows, cheering her on as<br />

her sporting career went from<br />

strength to strength. Yet she<br />

would still find time to help<br />

those around her, intentionally<br />

going out of her way to serve and<br />

spend time with those in her<br />

community.<br />

“If there was a moment of<br />

doubt or frustration, one of<br />

us would always be there to<br />

support her either in person or<br />

we’d be sending her messages<br />

constantly,” said Georgia.<br />

Messages of support have<br />

flooded in from across the world.<br />

In Perth, a fundraiser was organised<br />

in her honour by one of her<br />

former teams.<br />

Georgia would receive texts<br />

from people she’d never met,<br />

telling her they’d met Mary at<br />

some point and she’d impacted<br />

them in some way.<br />

<strong>The</strong> family is processing the<br />

situation in different ways, but<br />

the mindset is if anybody has the<br />

strength to recover, it’s Mary.<br />

“(She’s) the strongest person<br />

we know – physically, mentally,<br />

the optimism comes from the<br />

fact she’s got it tough, the whole<br />

world is praying for her and we’ll<br />

be part of that.”<br />

Judy Bailey: We Need a Rev’ Up!<br />

KORU NUTRITION<br />

As she enters her seventh<br />

decade, journalist and former<br />

news presenter Judy Bailey has<br />

become aware that society’s<br />

attitudes towards older people<br />

need, in her words, ‘a rev up.’<br />

“Once you pass 65, people<br />

tend to think it’s a downhill<br />

slide to the Zimmer frame.<br />

But that’s far from the truth.”<br />

“Many of us remain<br />

physically<br />

active,<br />

paddleboarding, cycling, and<br />

even tramping well into our<br />

70s.”<br />

With population of older<br />

adults expected to double<br />

over the next 20 years, Judy<br />

is teaming up with Koru<br />

Nutrition to change the way<br />

New Zealander’s view and<br />

experience ageing.<br />

With a focus on holistic<br />

wellness and a commitment<br />

to excellence, Koru Nutrition<br />

aims to empower individuals<br />

to take charge of their health<br />

as they age.<br />

<strong>The</strong> New Zealand-owned<br />

company specialises in natural<br />

health products, including<br />

Koru FX and Koru Joint.<br />

As part of the project, Judy<br />

will be interviewing health<br />

experts and uncovering<br />

practical steps that help us age<br />

well.<br />

“I’ll collaborate with<br />

health professionals such as<br />

nutritionists, physiotherapists,<br />

dietitians,<br />

doctors,<br />

psychologists, and osteopaths<br />

alongside the Koru Nutrition<br />

team to bring the latest<br />

research to the forefront the<br />

conversation around ageing<br />

well.”<br />

On why she chose to work<br />

with Koru Nutrition, Judy had<br />

this to say:<br />

“I love Koru Nutrition<br />

because it’s family-owned<br />

New Zealand company whose<br />

ethos aligns with my own.”<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y make quality products<br />

with the best ingredients and<br />

promote a holistic approach<br />

to ageing. I believe that if you<br />

can age naturally, that’s all for<br />

the better.”<br />

“I live an active lifestyle,<br />

and as I get older, I would<br />

hate to have walks with the<br />

dog curtailed or not be able to<br />

lift the grandchildren onto the<br />

flying fox.”<br />

Judy Bailey is all set to<br />

uncover the most up to date<br />

United seeks a return to winning<br />

ways in Chatham Cup battle<br />

Premier rugby, hockey<br />

and rugby league<br />

take a break for King’s<br />

Birthday weekend,<br />

while the Chatham Cup<br />

continues and the top<br />

two teams in premier<br />

1 netball face off in a<br />

grand final rematch.<br />

Jaime Cunningham<br />

reports<br />

FOOTBALL<br />

Christchurch United will be<br />

looking to get back to their winning<br />

ways in the second round<br />

of the Chatham Cup, when the<br />

Southern League leaders take<br />

on University of Canterbury on<br />

Monday.<br />

It follows their 1-1 draw<br />

against Cashmere Technical on<br />

Saturday, United breaking their<br />

eight-game winning streak.<br />

United head coach Paul Ifill<br />

said it was a “pretty difficult”<br />

first half, but the team felt confident<br />

at halftime following a red<br />

card being handed to Technical’s<br />

Tom Schwarz.<br />

“We created enough chances<br />

to go out in front at halftime<br />

though,” he said.<br />

United’s Sam Philip was the<br />

first to find the score in the 58th<br />

minute from a Daniel MacLennan<br />

cross.<br />

But Ifill said United then “fell<br />

into a hole,” while Technical<br />

played like they had nothing to<br />

lose.<br />

Technical’s Garbhan Coughlan<br />

evened the game up in the 76th<br />

minute, before narrowly missing<br />

a header in the dying minutes for<br />

the win.<br />

Both teams will now shift<br />

focus for the second round of<br />

the Chatham Cup this weekend<br />

alongside Ferrymead Bays, FC<br />

Twenty 11, Coastal Spirit and<br />

University of Canterbury.<br />

United and University of<br />

Canterbury last clashed in April<br />

in the first round of the English<br />

Cup where United came up on<br />

top 4-0.<br />

“We really want a decent cup<br />

run after being knocked out at<br />

this stage last year,” Ifill said.<br />

Nomads and Selwyn United<br />

take a break after Nomads 3-1<br />

win over Selwyn.<br />

FC Twenty 11 face Bays following<br />

their 6-0 thrashing against<br />

Nelson Suburbs, while Cashmere<br />

take on Coastal Spirit.<br />

Both Bays and Coastal go into<br />

their second round Chatham<br />

Cup matches following wins over<br />

Green Island (2-1) and Dunedin<br />

City Royals (1-0) respectively.<br />

NETBALL<br />

A rematch of last year’s final<br />

between Lincoln University A<br />

and UC A headlines the final<br />

games of the first round in premier<br />

netball on Tuesday.<br />

CLASH: Cashmere Technical’s Garbhan Coughlan prepares to put boot to ball in the team’s<br />

1-1 draw against the unbeaten Christchurch United. PHOTO: JIM WATTS PHOTOGRAPHY ​<br />

Although Lincoln University<br />

A are unbeaten and comfortably<br />

lead the points table, the return<br />

of several Tactix and National<br />

Netball League players to UC set<br />

up a tight clash.<br />

UC overcame the winless<br />

Technical A 59-41 in round six,<br />

boosted by the return of Vika<br />

Koloto, Paris Lokotui and Parris<br />

Peterra. Technical will have to<br />

beat Kereru B to avoid dropping<br />

to premier 2.<br />

Lincoln University A stunned<br />

Hearts St Peters A with a<br />

dominant last quarter, extending<br />

their four goal lead to a 45-31<br />

win. Hearts take on Lincoln<br />

University B in the last game<br />

before the championship round.<br />

Lincoln University B won their<br />

fourth game of the season in a<br />

tight battle against Kereru A,<br />

53-49.<br />

Kereru A take on Kia Toa A,<br />

who may have avoided relegation<br />

with their 44-42 win over Kereru<br />

RUGBY<br />

Sumner recorded a massive<br />

comeback 47-36 win over Lincoln<br />

University to claim the biggest<br />

upset in the Metro premier<br />

competition in round seven.<br />

After trailing 24-0 at 30 mins,<br />

Sumner looked headed for their<br />

fourth loss of the season.<br />

However, head coach Gareth<br />

D’almeida said the Wave stuck<br />

to their game plan in the second<br />

half, which essentially won the<br />

game.<br />

“It was great to see the boys<br />

come together and regroup,” he<br />

said.<br />

Sumner will challenge the<br />

DCL Shield for the third time<br />

this season against University on<br />

<strong>June</strong> 10.<br />

D’almedia said the extra incentive<br />

adds a “bit of flavour” for<br />

the game, but the team’s biggest<br />

focus will be making the upcoming<br />

playoffs in July.<br />

“I think we still haven’t seen<br />

the best of Sumner yet.”<br />

University head into the clash<br />

following a strong 34-19 win<br />

over Linwood, while Lincoln<br />

University will take on secondplaced<br />

Marist Albion. Marist<br />

narrowly beat Shirley 38-33.<br />

Shirley and Linwood will contest<br />

the Lionel Hunter Trophy on<br />

<strong>June</strong> 10.<br />

Burnside will look to avenge<br />

their 34-30 loss to New Brighton<br />

when they play the winless Belfast<br />

next week.<br />

New Brighton take on High<br />

School Old Boys’ in round eight.<br />

HSOB climbed into the top eight<br />

with a 39-27 win over Sydenham<br />

on Saturday.<br />

Defending champions Sydenham<br />

will play Christchurch, who<br />

had their first win of the season<br />

against Belfast, 28-18.<br />

In the women’s premier<br />

grade, the previously unbeaten<br />

Christchurch suffered a 34-24<br />

loss to University to tighten up<br />

the table as finals loom.<br />

RUGBY LEAGUE<br />

<strong>The</strong> Linwood Keas will look<br />

to refresh during this weekend’s<br />

break before their match against<br />

the Riccarton Knights in round<br />

10.<br />

After a seven-game winning<br />

streak, the Keas suffered their<br />

CHARGE: Sumner number eight Macenzzie Duncan fends<br />

off Lincoln University in the Wave’s 47-36 comeback win.<br />

PHOTO: TONY BRUNT<br />

second straight loss to the<br />

Hornby Panthers, 42-28.<br />

A slow first half was again a<br />

problem for the Keas, who lost<br />

their first match to the Halswell<br />

Hornets 18-8 in similar circumstances.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Panthers dominated the<br />

first half and led 32-6 at halftime.<br />

Hornby held on for the wine to<br />

move to 14 points alongside the<br />

Keas as a result.<br />

Linwood will look to return to<br />

their winning ways when they<br />

play the fifth-placed Knights on<br />

<strong>June</strong> 10. However, the Knights<br />

will be confident after their<br />

upset 38-32 win over the Eastern<br />

Eagles in round nine.<br />

<strong>The</strong> fourth-placed Eagles play<br />

the third-placed Halswell Hornets,<br />

who recorded a 30-16 win<br />

over the Northern Bulldogs.<br />

A controlled first half for<br />

Halswell again won the game<br />

for the side, after leading 26-4 at<br />

halftime. However, the Bulldogs<br />

will take plenty of positives from<br />

the game after a second-half<br />

fightback.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Bulldogs travel to Leslie<br />

Park to take on the Panthers next<br />

Saturday.<br />

HOCKEY<br />

As the Canterbury Premier<br />

League grades head into the<br />

midway mark of the season,<br />

upsets have been hard to come<br />

by as the top teams continue to<br />

cement their places at the top of<br />

the ladders.<br />

Carlton Redcliffs and Marist<br />

lead both standings following<br />

round six wins before the long<br />

weekend break.<br />

George Baker netted an impressive<br />

five goals in Marist’s 7-4<br />

win over University on Saturday.<br />

However, Marist will want to<br />

concede fewer goals when they<br />

take on table-leaders Carlton<br />

Redcliffs on <strong>June</strong> 10.<br />

Carlton go into the match<br />

off the back of a 2-0 win over<br />

fourth-placed Harewood, who<br />

play Southern in round seven.<br />

Avon notched their second win<br />

of the season over HSOB/Burnside,<br />

3-1, while Southern and<br />

Hornby settled for a 2-2 draw.<br />

In the women’s competition,<br />

Carlton scrapped through for a<br />

4-3 win over Harewood to stay<br />

level with Marist at the top of the<br />

table on 13 points.<br />

Marist, who had a bye in<br />

round six, will play Carlton when<br />

hockey returns next week. Both<br />

teams are yet to lose this season.<br />

HSOB/Burnside had a strong<br />

3-0 win against Avon on Saturday,<br />

and moved to eight points.<br />

Hornby managed their first<br />

win of the season over Southern<br />

3-0, and will play HSOB/Burnside<br />

in round seven.<br />

Meanwhile, Southern will<br />

continue to search for their<br />

first goal of the year against<br />

Harewood.

<strong>The</strong> Junior All Whites have<br />

been eliminated from the<br />

under-20 FIFA World Cup<br />

after suffering a 4-0 defeat to<br />

the United States. Captained<br />

by former Selwyn United<br />

defender Finn Surman,<br />

New Zealand were able to<br />

keep the USA at 1-0 for 60<br />

minutes before the Americans<br />

powered to three more goals<br />

to win the round of 16 playoff.<br />

New Zealand qualified<br />

for the round following a<br />

win, draw and loss against<br />

Guatemala, Uzbekistan and<br />

hosts Argentina in group A<br />

THE ANNUAL school match<br />

be the most fiercely-contested of<br />

their 85th win against their old<br />

coaching sessions.<br />

<strong>The</strong> sessions have been established<br />

by Canterbury Rugby so<br />

two different teams can be assisted<br />

with skills each week – aimed<br />

at new players in particular.<br />

Community rugby manager<br />

Fiona Smith said 1300 female<br />

players were registered in the<br />

region last year, and although<br />

final numbers cannot be yet<br />

confirmed for this season, there<br />

won the match 47-33 last year,<br />

stunned Christ’s with three tries<br />

in the space of 10min in the first<br />

half.<br />

Christ’s first five Leo Jelley was<br />

successful in a penalty attempt<br />

in the 22nd minute, but no opportunities<br />

came for the visitors<br />

to add to the three points.<br />

<strong>The</strong> passing of Christchurch<br />

Boys’ was too slick for Christ’s,<br />

who often found themselves on<br />

the back foot.<br />

Leading 22-3 at halftime,<br />

Christchurch Boys’ were quick to<br />

pick up where they left off, with<br />

a fourth try going to centre Jack<br />

Busch-Ward following a strong<br />

break by number eight Marshall<br />

Blackley.<br />

is already a big increase.<br />

“We are currently sitting on<br />

around a 30 per cent rise in junior<br />

and teenage girls and 25 per<br />

cent in women, and players are<br />

still coming in,” she said.<br />

New Zealand Rugby predicted<br />

a 40 per cent increase from the<br />

number of girls and women<br />

playing in 2022, estimating over<br />

35,000 to play club or school<br />

rugby this season.<br />

Tries to Hiro Fushigami<br />

and Victory Isaako added to<br />

Christchurch Boys’ leadf.<br />

Christ’s were unable to hold<br />

onto possession long enough to<br />

near the tryline, and lacked line<br />

speed and the quick feet that<br />

Christchurch Boys’ used, which<br />

ultimately cost them the game.<br />

<strong>The</strong> loss ended Christ’s threegame<br />

unbeaten streak start to the<br />

season, while Christchurch Boys’<br />

had already lost a game against<br />

defending champions, Nelson<br />

College, 14-10.<br />

Both teams enjoy a week’s<br />

break, and return with local<br />

clashes next weekend. Christ’s<br />

take on St Bede’s College in a Friday<br />

night match on <strong>June</strong> 9, while<br />

This year’s Miles Toyota Cup<br />

is primarily focused on developing<br />

and keeping these players in<br />

the game, by adjusting scrum<br />

and lineout rules that will be<br />

continually reviewed throughout<br />

the season.<br />

Canterbury Rugby has also<br />

introduced a new junior grade<br />

for year 5, 6 and 7 pupils, to cater<br />

for the next generation of cup<br />

players coming through, played<br />

on Monday nights.<br />

Prebbleton, Marist Albion,<br />

Merivale Papanui, Rolleston,<br />

Ōtautahi and Kaiapoi have all<br />

entered teams in the grade.<br />

Previously, the cup has been a<br />

qualifier for the national championships,<br />

similar to the boys’<br />

Miles Toyota Premiership.<br />

Christchurch Girls’ and<br />

Manukura were last year’s joint<br />

winners, after a 19-19 draw.<br />

This season, there will be<br />

a series of knockout matches<br />

between Crusader region teams<br />

who wish to contest the title after<br />

Pre-arranging your funeral provides peace<br />

that you’re not leaving your family with<br />

in water –<br />

again a big no<br />

I recently read with great interest an<br />

article in <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong>, May 25, regarding<br />

the proposed Government directive for<br />

chlorination of our drinking water.<br />

I have a severe kidney problem and over<br />

chlorination of our water supply would<br />

greatly affect my health and well-being. I<br />

need to drink two to three litres of water<br />

a day and to have excess chlorine added<br />

to our water would not only cause me<br />

further kidney problems but would be<br />

detrimental to my future health.<br />

This can be found in many studies<br />

by reputable researchers that too much<br />

chlorine in our body for those with<br />

kidney problems can cause extreme<br />

diagnoses and even to the point of<br />

complete kidney failure.<br />

Is the Government going to supply<br />

me with the amount of bottled water I<br />

require a day? Or compensate me for the<br />

loss of the only good kidney I have left? Or<br />

just disregard my health for the sake of<br />

their blind and unjust over use of power<br />

over the population?<br />

D McGregor<br />

I totally object to the chlorination of<br />

water in all of Christchurch.<br />

Will artesian water need treating?<br />

(<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong>, May 25). Will the city council<br />

be issuing all residents a filter at the<br />

boundary to our properties so that we do<br />

not have to have any chlorination?<br />

Water is vital to our lives and especially<br />

when we can turn our taps on and not<br />

smell chlorine. <strong>The</strong>re are potential side<br />

effects of chlorine in our water, congenital<br />

abnormalities, bladder and rectal cancer,<br />

asthma symptoms, food allergies along<br />

with the smell and taste.<br />

People can also have skin issues<br />

showering or bathing which creates an<br />

ongoing issue of needing to go to the<br />

doctor for assessment and potential<br />

treating. Will the city council pay for this?<br />

our already pure water supply rather than<br />

Taumata Arowai pushes chlorine as if it’s<br />

the only way to make sure our water is fit<br />

Retirement Villages<br />

Security, freedom from home<br />

maintenance worries, support,<br />

companionship and on-site healthcare are<br />

just some of the reasons why you might be<br />

contemplating the move to a Retirement<br />

Village. But, the implications of buying in<br />

a Retirement Village are varied and often<br />

seem quite complex. It’s not the same as<br />

buying a residential property. <strong>The</strong> most<br />

important thing to remember is that this<br />

decision is about you and the type of<br />

lifestyle you want. Here are some things to<br />

keep in mind when you’re thinking about<br />

the move to Retirement Village living.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Lifestyle – what kind of lifestyle<br />

do you want? Think about the things that<br />

are “must haves” for you and pick a Village<br />

which enables you to achieve your goals.<br />

Look at different Villages and speak to<br />

the residents if possible, to ensure that the<br />

Village you pick ticks all your boxes.<br />

Your Future - does the Village have<br />

Hospital or Dementia level care? If your<br />

needs change, are you able to move within<br />

the Village to a different level of care? And<br />

what costs are involved?<br />

Ownership – there are different legal<br />

structures used in Retirement Villages<br />

with the most common being Licences to<br />

Occupy. <strong>The</strong>se do not transfer ownership,<br />

as such, but rather, they confer a licence to<br />

occupy a certain unit at the Village until a<br />

given event.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Money – make sure you<br />

understand exactly what your purchase<br />

price or “Entry Payment” is paying for.<br />

What on-going fees are there? Will those<br />

fees change? If so, how will they change?<br />

On ending your Agreement, what money<br />

will be refunded to you? How is this<br />

calculated? What costs will be taken out of<br />

any refund and when will you receive it?<br />

<strong>The</strong> decision to move into a retirement<br />

village is not one you should rush. Take<br />

time and consider all your options. Make<br />

a checklist of the reasons for and against<br />

and involve your family and friends<br />

in your decision making process. It is<br />

also important to ensure you have the<br />

appropriate legal and financial advice.<br />

At Harmans we have a specialist<br />

seniors team experienced in dealing with<br />

purchasing in a Retirement Village. Give<br />

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

arrange an appointment to discuss your<br />

situation.<br />

Amazing health miracles<br />

from the silkworm<br />

Serrapeptase an enzyme produced in<br />

silkworms may become one of the most widely<br />

used natural health solutions for its ability to<br />

replace the majority of anti-inflammatory drugs<br />

and bypass operations. It is nature’s answer to<br />

pain, chronic inflammation and clogged arteries.<br />

Enzymes are essential for life. Constantly<br />

working to build and regenerate the body, they<br />

help digest food, break down toxins and cleanse<br />

the blood, in addition to thousands of other<br />

functions. A lack of enzymes in the body leads<br />

to food intolerances, allergies, digestive issues,<br />

disease and poor health. Studies show an average<br />

70-year-old has only 20 percent of the enzymes<br />

found in the body of a 20-year-old.<br />

Serrapeptase is a natural anti-inflammatory,<br />

which can clean, clear and reduce inflammation<br />

while dissolving non-living tissue including<br />

blood clots, cysts, arterial plaque and mucus.<br />

One of its major benefits is its ability to reduce<br />

pain.<br />

<strong>The</strong> serrapeptase enzyme was first found in<br />

the intestine of the silkworm in the late 1960s.<br />

<strong>The</strong> silkworm uses it to dissolve the hard<br />

cocoon, allowing the moth to escape as well as<br />

to digest the tough mulberry leaves it feeds on.<br />

Serrapeptase can now be produced commercially<br />

by fermentation of the microorganism Serriata<br />

E15. It is prescribed by doctors across Europe<br />

and Asia.<br />

Over the last 40 years, clinical studies<br />

have shown serrapeptase to have remarkable<br />

benefits in a vast range of health conditions<br />

including blocked arteries, cardiovascular,<br />

arthritis, asthma, lung conditions, pain, tumors,<br />

autoimmune disease and many more. In<br />

Germany, Dr. Hans Nieper clinically researched<br />

serrapeptase and found it could clear blocked<br />

arteries and prevent the need for bypass<br />

operations. U.K. pharmacist Dennis Gore talked<br />

on BBC radio about the dramatic results he has<br />

had with serrapeptase. One case was a man in<br />

his 60s who had been a heavy smoker and was<br />

wheeled into his pharmacy. He was breathless<br />

due to emphysema and COPD and could hardly<br />

talk. He was on antibiotics, and oxygen and<br />

getting bad infections. Dennis prescribed him<br />

serrapeptase and three weeks later the man<br />

walked into his pharmacy, with no wheelchair<br />

and no breathlessness and said to Dennis he was<br />

Benefits from<br />

the silkworm<br />

Serrapeptase, an enzyme first discovered in the silkworm, could<br />

become one of the most widely used natural health remedies due<br />

to its ability to potentially replace the majority of anti-inflammatory<br />

drugs & bypass operations.<br />

Serrapeptase is a natural anti-inflammatory enzyme that according<br />

to research can clean, clear & reduce inflammation while safely<br />

dissolving non-living tissue such as blood clots, cysts, arterial<br />

plaque & mucus. One of its major benefits is its ability to reduce<br />

pain & clear clogged arteries.<br />

SERRAPEPTASE SUPPORTS<br />

• Inflammation relief, works on clearing the cause<br />

• Pain relief<br />

• Safely clearing the arteries of arterial plaque<br />

that could lead to a heart attack or stroke<br />

• Improving blood circulation<br />

• Reducing high blood pressure<br />

• Supporting cardiovascular health<br />

Weatherproofing tips for<br />

your house design<br />

Underfloor insulation<br />

Foam insulated expanded polystyrene<br />

panels under the concrete slab act as an<br />

insulating barrier, stopping cold coming<br />

through from under the house.<br />

Garages<br />

Insulating the garage and its door will cut<br />

down on a steady stream of cold air sneaking<br />

into the house. An insulated garage door<br />

can lift the temperature substantially even<br />

when the garage itself is not heated, making<br />

it a more pleasant place to spend time. Any<br />

home appliances kept in the garage will use<br />

less electricity as they will not have to work<br />

as hard and your car battery may last longer.<br />

Roof design<br />

Roof designs vary. <strong>The</strong> simplest way to<br />

achieve a weather tight house is to have a<br />

simple roof design with an overhanging<br />

surfeit. Architectural flat roofs will work<br />

though more care is needed to achieve<br />

weather tightness especially where there<br />

are hidden or back roof gutters. Having a<br />

roof with no overhang also requires more<br />

care with the design due to its complexity<br />

and potential for problems. Regular<br />

maintenance to clean out leaves and<br />

debris that gets caught in the roof will be<br />

advantageous in both cases.<br />

Porticos<br />

Taking the roof out beyond the house is<br />

ideal for providing a sheltered area for<br />

spending time outdoors when the weather<br />

is inclement.<br />

throughout<br />

Snow straps<br />

Christchurch<br />

or guttering protection<br />

Wherever snow is a likely part of winter,<br />

installation of snow straps is a good idea.<br />

<strong>The</strong>se prevent damage to guttering from<br />

M: the 021 weight 300 of 567 snow as E: it mike@starmedia.kiwi<br />

slides off the roof.<br />

Alternatively, an expanded steel mesh<br />

product such as Gutter Guard could<br />

be fitted. This has the added benefit of<br />

preventing spouting blockages from leaf<br />

and other debris.<br />

Capitalise on the sun<br />

Maximise the sun’s free energy with plenty<br />

of windows, especially on the north side of<br />

the house.<br />

Outdoor areas<br />

When choosing a house design, consider<br />

how it will sit on the section and whether it<br />

offers potential to catch sun inside the home<br />

and for sunny sheltered outdoor areas away<br />

from prevailing winds.<br />

Windows and doors<br />

Upgrade on the minimum standard for<br />

double glazing with thermally broken<br />

joinery and low-emissivity argon gas filled<br />

windows and doors, increasing insulation<br />

effectiveness.<br />
