Matatiki complex makes a<br />

big splash on opening day<br />

• By Geoff Sloan<br />

MAYOR PHIL Mauger and<br />

Hornby city councillor Mark<br />

Peters made a big splash at the<br />

opening of Matatiki Hornby<br />

Centre.<br />

The new 4000m² library,<br />

customer services, recreation and<br />

sport centre on Smarts Rd was<br />

officially opened on Friday.<br />

Despite its initial $34 million<br />

budget blowing out to about<br />

$46.9 million, Mauger said it was<br />

an exciting milestone to cut the<br />

ribbon – and take an impromptu<br />

dip in the pool.<br />

After the ceremony, Mauger<br />

and Peters decided to mark the<br />

occasion by diving into the main<br />

indoor pool fully clothed.<br />

“With over 12,000 new<br />

homes expected in Hornby and<br />

surrounding areas by 2044,<br />

I’m confident Matatiki will be<br />

well used and come to be well<br />

loved over the coming decades,”<br />

Mauger said.<br />

The complex includes a cafe,<br />

creative activities room, meeting<br />

rooms, outdoor courtyard and a<br />

stage.<br />

The indoor pool hall has a<br />

large lane pool, learn-to-swim<br />

pool, family spa, and a toddlers’<br />

wet play area. It has been a long<br />

wait for residents in the area who<br />

have gone without a facility like it<br />

since the Sockburn outdoor pool<br />

was closed in 2006.<br />

A hydrotherapy pool was<br />

added to the complex late in the<br />

design phase following pressure<br />

from the community.<br />

The council agreed to put in<br />

$2.5 million, while the Hornby<br />

Rotary Club and the Greater<br />

Hornby Residents’ Association<br />

raised the remaining $1.4 million.<br />

Peters predicts the<br />

hydrotherapy pool will be one<br />

of the centre’s most popular<br />

attractions.<br />

“(It’s the) best thing for Hornby<br />

and it’s going to be great for<br />

Christchurch. This will bring<br />

them from far and wide to come<br />

and enjoy this wonderful pool.”<br />

It also marked a new chapter<br />

for the Hornby Library, which<br />

recently vacated its old home for<br />

the past 50 years on Goulding<br />

Ave and moved 21,000 books<br />

across to Matatiki.<br />

Award-winner inspired<br />

by quake experience<br />

THIRTEEN YEARS ago, Ben<br />

Exton was shovelling sand<br />

and liquefied silt out of his<br />

great-uncle’s garden – now he<br />

has become the first engineer<br />

outside of academia to win a<br />

prestigious EQC award.<br />

The former Riccarton High<br />

student received the Ivan Skinner<br />

Award at the New Zealand<br />

Society of Earthquake Engineering<br />

conference last week in recognition<br />

of his work to develop<br />

and commercialise cost-effective<br />

quake engineering solutions.<br />

“What I<br />

remember from<br />

the Canterbury<br />

earthquakes was<br />

the enormous<br />

damage, but also<br />

the incredible<br />

human impact,”<br />

said Exton, who<br />

was a year 12<br />

Ben Exton<br />

student when the February 22,<br />

2011, quake struck.<br />

“I particularly recall my greatuncle,<br />

who was a keen gardener,<br />

and his beloved garden was<br />

completely covered in sand and<br />

silt from liquefaction. Watching<br />

a stoic Kiwi bloke like him<br />

totally devastated and helpless<br />

against the effects of an earthquake<br />

made a huge impact on<br />

me.”<br />

Exton, 29, is now the chief<br />

executive and co-founder of<br />

Seismic Shift Ltd.<br />

He is the first engineer outside<br />

of academia to receive the<br />

award, which is funded by EQC<br />

Toka Tū Ake.<br />

“Receiving this award is really<br />

encouraging for me, but I hope<br />

also for others in the private<br />

sector seeking to make the<br />

world a better place through<br />

innovation.<br />

“It is important to test new<br />

ideas in the laboratory for<br />

scientific grounding, and then<br />

turn these ideas into real-life<br />

solutions that are cost-effective<br />

and fit the current building<br />

environment.”<br />

After finishing his degree at<br />

Canterbury University, Exton<br />

cut his engineering teeth at<br />

Structex and further expanded<br />

EAR WAX REMOVAL<br />

Only $59<br />

Fixed Price<br />

his skills at Building Revolutions<br />

Group and Maynard Marks,<br />

before co-founding his company<br />

with fellow engineer Geoff<br />

Banks.<br />

Exton’s wife Miki has an<br />

architectural background, and<br />

provides the perfect foil to<br />

explore new ideas.<br />

Seismic Shift Ltd is currently<br />

developing a low-cost base<br />

dissipation system for residential<br />

homes to prevent or minimise<br />

damage to buildings during an<br />

earthquake.<br />

“I had this picture forming in<br />

my head at 3am, so I sketched<br />

it and then decided to get the<br />

design printed in 3D. We didn’t<br />

have too much confidence in the<br />

sketch on paper, but when Miki<br />

and I put the 3D pieces together,<br />

it actually worked.”<br />

Fundraiser aims<br />

to fill beds at<br />

children’s centre<br />

CHOLMONDELEY Children’s<br />

Centre has turned to the<br />

Canterbury community to ask<br />

for help to fill the beds at its<br />

respite care facility.<br />

It has launched ‘Give a Good<br />

Nights Sleep’, a fundraising<br />

campaign with three of the<br />

centre’s beds installed throughout<br />

the city to help drive both<br />

awareness and donations.<br />

“We wanted to install something<br />

in the city that reminded<br />

the public about Cholmondeley’s<br />

role in the community and that<br />

every night for 50 weeks of the<br />

year there are tamariki in need<br />

being cared for by us,” said<br />

Cholmondeley Children’s Centre<br />

general manager, Toni Tinirau.<br />

Cholmondeley has 23 beds<br />

for children to stay in during<br />

times of family stress or crisis,<br />

but on average just 17 of these<br />

beds are filled due to financial<br />

limitations.<br />

“We work hard to provide<br />

a free safe haven for as many<br />

Canterbury tamariki as we can<br />

but we can’t do it alone, we need<br />

the community to come together<br />

and help us fill our beds,” Tinirau<br />

said.<br />

The ‘Give a Good Nights Sleep’<br />

campaign has the three beds<br />

IN NEED: Cholmondeley<br />

Children’s Centre costs<br />

about $3m a year to run,<br />

with the majority of the<br />

funding coming from<br />

community donations.<br />

installed at Riverside Market,<br />

The Palms shopping centre and<br />

Ballantynes department store.<br />

“Every empty bed is a missed<br />

opportunity to support a child<br />

in need, if you can help us out<br />

at all please donate to give Canterbury<br />

tamariki a safe place to<br />

sleep,” Tinirau said.<br />

Cholmondeley is an independent<br />

charity and costs just<br />

under $3 million to run per year<br />

with 20 per cent of that met by<br />

Government funding and the<br />

remainder coming from the support<br />

of the community.<br />

Still feeling the buzz after years<br />

of service to amateur athletics<br />

Papanui Toc H life<br />

member Lawrence<br />

‘Buzz’ Jones is a<br />

great contributor to<br />

local athletics. Sports<br />

reporter Sam Coughlan<br />

caught up with him to<br />

discuss his time in the<br />

sport<br />

WORKING WITH one of New<br />

Zealand’s best athletics coaches<br />

was “bloody marvellous,” says<br />

Buzz.<br />

A talented sprinter across the<br />

100 and 2<strong>25</strong>-yard distances, in<br />

1956 Buzz was searching for<br />

something extra that would<br />

propel him into the reckoning<br />

for the 1958 Commonwealth<br />

Games in Wales.<br />

It came in the form of<br />

Valdemar ‘Valdy’ Briedis – a<br />

Latvian-born coach based in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

“I went and saw him in 1956<br />

and I said, ‘right, I want you to<br />

coach me and I’ll give you two<br />

years’,” Buzz said.<br />

The effect was immediate –<br />

Buzz was Canterbury champion<br />

in 1956, 1957 and 1958 across<br />

both sprinting disciplines.<br />

He said Briedis was a fantastic<br />

coach.<br />

“He was a hard guy, but he<br />

was a good coach. We used to<br />

go up to his place after a Sunday<br />

run up the Port Hills and come<br />

back and he’d make pancakes<br />

for us.<br />

“He sort of gave you the inspiration<br />

to actually perform a<br />

little bit better than you actually<br />

were. He boosted you up a wee<br />

bit and he brought the best out<br />

of his athletes, all the time.”<br />

The coaching had Buzz on the<br />

verge of Commonwealth Games<br />

selection – before a horrific<br />

injury struck.<br />

“Three weeks before the team<br />

was announced, I pulled two<br />

was a champion sprinter.<br />

hamstrings. Not one, bloody<br />

two of the bastards.<br />

“They told me, they reckon I<br />

went about eight feet in the air.<br />

They went like rubber bands.”<br />

COACH: Latvian born Valdemar “Valdy” Briedis played a major role in Buzz Jones’ training.<br />

A former president of Papanui<br />

Toc H, Buzz, who recently<br />

celebrated his 87th birthday,<br />

started doing athletics at high<br />

school before joining the Crichton<br />

Cobbers club at 15.<br />

He started working with Briedis<br />

when he was 19.<br />

He was already Buzz at that<br />

point – the nickname given to<br />

him as a child by his sister, after<br />

he would run around with his<br />

arms out pretending to be an<br />

airplane.<br />

In the 1960s, Buzz travelled<br />

to Melbourne to represent the<br />

Power House Athletic club.<br />

“It was the greatest time of my<br />

life,” he said.<br />

“I ran great times over there.<br />

I met bloody great athletes over<br />

there. I met some of the greatest<br />

athletic coaches in the world<br />

over there.”<br />

When Buzz returned to New<br />

Zealand and joined Toc H in<br />

1962, he organised annual<br />

meets between his two clubs –<br />

the events alternating between<br />

Melbourne and Christchurch<br />

each year, with the final one<br />

held in 1970.<br />

Buzz was an official at the<br />

1974 Commonwealth Games<br />

held at QEII stadium in<br />

Christchurch, in charge of the<br />

starting blocks for sprinters.<br />

He said they were the “greatest<br />

games in the world,” and he<br />

was disappointed the stadium<br />

was neglected after being damaged<br />

in the Christchurch earthquakes.<br />

“I thought personally they<br />

could have rebuilt it there. I<br />

honestly do.<br />

“Ngā Puna Wai, I don’t like<br />

it down there, it’s too bloody<br />

cold.”<br />

These days he helps with fundraising<br />

for the club – selling<br />

honey and running pub quizzes,<br />

as well as chipping in himself<br />

to help young athletes play and<br />

travel for the sport.<br />

“I do a life membership-type<br />

fund and we put in and help<br />

athletes who can’t afford to pay<br />

for their fees,” he said.<br />

“Also I give honey to the kids<br />

and we sell them for ten bucks<br />

a jar and they can make up to<br />

four dollars a jar.<br />

“So it’s good fundraising for<br />

them.”<br />

Each jar of honey has a thankyou<br />

note on the back – a token<br />

of appreciation for those willing<br />

to help out.<br />

Keeping young people, he<br />

says aged 16-23, in athletics,<br />

and helping others get into the<br />

sport, is one of the main aims<br />

for Buzz.<br />

“I can remember one day I<br />

went down to the club and we’ve<br />

got a shed there with all the<br />

equipment in.<br />

“There was a bunch of kids sitting<br />

there, and they had a bag<br />

beside them full of graffiti spray<br />

cans, so I knew, obviously, what<br />

was going to happen,” he said.<br />

“I went in and I grabbed a<br />

couple of javelins, and I brought<br />

them out, and I told them ‘have<br />

a throw’, and one of the little<br />

bastards could throw the bloody<br />

thing!<br />

“I said, ‘I want you here Tuesday<br />

night’. Bugger me, he turns<br />

up Tuesday night. And he ended<br />

up getting a placing in the Canterbury<br />

champs.<br />

“That gives you a bit of joy in<br />

yourself, a bit of satisfaction.”

THURSDAY APRIL <strong>25</strong>, <strong>2024</strong><br />

Remembering our Anzacs<br />

“The darkness, calm and chill of the early morning; the sound of<br />

the single tap of the drum of the parade; the emotionless faces<br />

of the catafalque guard, and the mournful notes of Last Post<br />

sounded by a lone bugler, combine to give a feeling of deep<br />

solemnity. It is the intensity of the symbolism which contributes<br />

to its powerful impact upon participants; indeed what underlies its<br />

popularity. In a country with few public rituals, the Dawn Service<br />

continues to provide a sense of occasion as a meaningful ritual of<br />

remembrance.”<br />

rsa.org.nz<br />

Every year Anzac Day is observed on <strong>April</strong> <strong>25</strong> by communities<br />

throughout New Zealand and Australia to remember those who have<br />

served and those who lost their lives in war. The term ANZAC is the<br />

acronym for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, and was first<br />

used in World War 1. These groups of soldiers back then were known<br />

as ‘the Anzacs’.<br />

Anzac commemorations may consist of one or more ceremonies –<br />

one at dawn (timed to coincide with the initial landings at Gallipoli<br />

by Australian troops who were the first ashore) and/or one later<br />

in the morning. The ceremonies are rich in tradition and generally<br />

begin with a parade of returned servicemen and military personnel<br />

followed by cadets, youth groups and local dignitaries. War veterans,<br />

proudly sporting their medals lead the parade, which leads to a local<br />

cenotaph or memorial gate where the ceremony includes a service<br />

with hymns, laying of wreaths, dedications, prayers and the Last Post<br />

played on a bugle. Morning tea follows and allows people to share<br />

memories and catch up with friends and neighbours.<br />

Anzac Day was first observed by servicemen in 1916 to mark the<br />

anniversary of New Zealand and Australian soldiers landing on the<br />

Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915. It soon became a day where all New<br />

Zealanders and Australians took time to remember the men and<br />

women who perished in the Great War. In 1921, Anzac Day became<br />

an official holiday and by 1922 it was declared a full public holiday<br />

where shops, banks and hotels remained closed for the day.<br />

Symbol of remembrance<br />

The red (or Flanders) poppy is a symbol of remembrance and hope<br />

all over the world and, in some countries, is worn on Armistice<br />

Day, however in New Zealand the red poppy is commonly worn<br />

on Anzac Day. The first Poppy Day appeal was on <strong>April</strong> 24 in 1922,<br />

where funds from the sales of small and large silk poppies helped<br />

relieve suffering in war-ravaged northern France. A paper version<br />

of the poppy is now sold by the Royal New Zealand Returned<br />

Services Association on Poppy Day to raise awareness for Anzac<br />

Day and funds for returned soldiers and their families and local<br />

communities.<br />

‘They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:<br />

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.<br />

At the going down of the sun and in the morning<br />

We will remember them.’<br />

Ageing ASX off the pace in compact market<br />

NEARLY 15 years into its model<br />

life, and well past automotive<br />

retirement age, Mitsubishi’s ASX<br />

continues to feature prominently<br />

among our top 10 selling new<br />

vehicles.<br />

The on-going popularity of this<br />

stalwart of the Mitsubishi family<br />

is built around sharp pricing, a<br />

long warranty and an enviable<br />

reputation for reliability. This is<br />

enough for the ASX to counter<br />

smarter looking, more refined<br />

and better driving compact urban<br />

SUV rivals. The company does<br />

this by offering a well appointed<br />

and priced model line-up new car<br />

purchasers know and trust.<br />

About three years ago, the<br />

ASX underwent one the biggest<br />

upgrades in its long and successful<br />

Motoring with Bob Nettleton<br />

career that started way back in<br />

2009.<br />

The most obvious change was<br />

a more modern and aggressive<br />

facelift, so well executed it visually<br />

took years off the vehicle’s life.<br />

You can get behind the wheel<br />

of an ASX in entry-level LS trim<br />

from for just $27,990. The more<br />

generously equipped XLS retails<br />

for the $31,990 and the fully<br />

loaded VRX is good value at<br />

$35,995.<br />

Power, and not a whole lot, is<br />

provided by a basic non-turbo<br />

112kW 2.0 litre petrol motor with<br />

plenty of years on the clock, but<br />

still as honest and earnest as ever.<br />

Throttle response is meek<br />

until the rev counter cracks<br />

the 4000rpm mark when the<br />

Ratings out of 10: Performance 6; Handling 6 Build Quality<br />

Incorporating<br />

best motorbuys<br />

www.drivesouth.co.nz<br />

motor feels more convincing and<br />

purposeful, but still off the pace set<br />

by newer motors.<br />

However, this belated burst<br />

of enthusiasm is all bit too little<br />

to the party. Some lethargy is<br />

down to the decent 200Nm wad<br />

of torque being a no-show until<br />

4200rpm. It should be on the<br />

job at least 1000rpm earlier to<br />

make a meaningful performance<br />

contribution.<br />

Some constant variable transmission<br />

(CVT) gearboxes are<br />

better than others and Mitsubishi<br />

have made incremental improvements<br />

to this one over the years.<br />

While far from perfect, it’s<br />

perfectly adequate in a pricedriven<br />

model such as the ASX.<br />

Passenger space is okay by<br />

compact SUV standards although<br />

rear headroom isn’t great for taller<br />

back seat passengers. Rear hatch<br />

cargo space is modest and isn’t<br />

helped by the vehicle’s high floor<br />

area and lack of load height.<br />

The 8-inch smartphone link<br />

display audio system offers<br />

intuitive design to complement its<br />

Apple Carplay and Android Auto<br />

connectivity. The VRX doesn’t<br />

disappoint as the most lavishly<br />

appointed member of the ASX<br />

family. Underlining that status<br />

are leather-trimmed seats, rainsensing<br />

wipers and dusk sensing<br />

headlights.<br />

All models, including the VRX,<br />

have an integrated system of active<br />

and passive safety features. This<br />

comprises seven airbags (driver,<br />

driver’s knee, passenger, side and<br />

curtain), hill start assist, electronic<br />

brake-force distribution, active<br />

traction control, active stability<br />

control and multi-mode anti-lock<br />

braking system.<br />

A proven fully-independent<br />

suspension set-up lays the<br />

foundation for a competent<br />

rather than rewarding handling<br />

experience, and its effort to<br />

achieve aren’t helped by the<br />

vehicle’s extra ride height, that<br />

under hard cornering ups the<br />

body lean ante.<br />

The steering is light, and<br />

short on the levels of road feel<br />

to consistently deliver sufficient<br />

grip and road holding that would<br />

lift the vehicle out of the fair to<br />

middling handling zone. Overall,<br />

the ride and handling is acceptable<br />

for an aging, price driven compact<br />

urban SUV that remains a<br />

consistently strong seller here.<br />
