Bid to stop Canty bank closures „„ By Sophie Cornish and Georgia O’Connor-Harding RESISTANCE IS building in a bid to stop the closure of Westpac branches in Canterbury. The bank has plans to close its New Brighton, Sydenham and Lincoln branches and is currently consulting with staff. Westpac says internet and mobile phone banking, and changing populations because of the earthquakes, is the reason for the plan. A ommunity group in New Brighton is fighting to stop the potential closure of its Westpac branch. And Coastal-Burwood Ward city councillor David East is planning to get the backing of Development Christchurch Ltd to try and stop the New Brighton closure. DCL is a city councilowned company charged with reinvigorating New Brighton, with an emphasis on creating business. Said Cr East: “It is a huge disappointment to me to see another banking institution potentially moving out of New Brighton. “We are talking with Westpac to see if we can get this decision put off for a while longer until such time when we can see if the hot salt water pools and the business reinvigoration will impact on the business sector on this side of town.” •Turn to page 4


Thursday November 23 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THE WORLD is a quickly changing place, faster than anytime in human existence. All businesses are threatened in some way by the internet and, in 10 years time, we will live in a very different age to now. On page 1 today, more Westpac banks are likely to close, effectively a casualty of internet banking. The planned bank closures are a blow to the communities they service, particularly for the elderly who obviously rely less on the internet. There are plans to fight the New Brighton closure and time will tell whether it is effective. I suspect not, unless the bank’s rent is paid for. On a more positive note, Lianne Dalziel (see page 4) looks like she will move to streamline rebuild organisations like Development Christchurch and Regenerate Christchurch. That is a smart and overdue move. There’s been far too much bureaucracy in the rebuild. She and new re-build minister, Megan Woods, look like an effective team. – Barry Clarke

At a Glance THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This day in history saw the Provincial Council buildings (right) in Durham St completed on November 21, 1865. The complex of buildings was architect B. W. Mountfort’s masterpiece. He had survived a professional disaster soon after arrival in New Zealand when his first building, a church in Lyttelton, had proved structurally unsound and had to be demolished. On November 21, 1957, four people were killed

in a SAFE Air Bristol freighter crash at Russley golf course. On November 22, 1986, Pope John Paul II, (the first head of

the Catholic Church) visited the city. On the same day a year later, the Trans Alpine express train, designed specifically for the tourist trade, began its daily run from Christchurch to Greymouth. On November 25, 1940, the Holmwood, en route from the Chathams to Lyttelton, was sunk by German raiders. Passengers and crew were taken aboard the German ships, and eventually made their way home two months later.

“No lawns to mow or leaves to pick up.” Joyce and Lloyd have a beautiful garden and enjoy a relaxed lifestyle with a great sense of community and security. Lloyd says he sees as many people in a day at Summerset as he would have seen in a month outside their last home. He also really enjoys not having the burden of continuous maintenance.

“IT’S A RELAXED WAY OF LIFE.”

They’ve been enjoying their villa at their Summerset retirement village for just over nine years. And there’s an added bonus says Joyce, “Our family couldn’t be happier, because they know we’re looked after.”

THree vibrant artworks have been short-listed to brighten the wall of the Ibis Hotel on Hereford St – and you can decide what one is the winner. The works have been designed by local artists based on ideas put forward by the public. One shows flora and fauna, another inspires people to take time to breathe, while the third outlines the rebuilding of the city. The design that attracts the most support on the city council’s Facebook page will be chosen on Tuesday.

Although the iconic factory was controversially demolished in 1990, it still appears on the cover of the Edmonds Cookery Book with the iconic sunray motif on it. T J Edmonds was a well-known philanthropist. He built the Edmonds Band Rotunda in 1929. He also partly, or fully funded, several other buildings including Kilmore St’s demolished Repertory Theatre, the Clock Tower on Oxford Tce, and the former Theosophical Society building on Cambridge Tce. John Edmonds said the family was “delighted” the city council had committed to restoring the earthquake-damaged band rotunda. Consultation on whether to change the street name is expected to be done early next year. The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board would then need to approve the change.

The city council has been relevelling the earthquake-damaged ground and natural grass fields were being built with irrigation and drainage.

„„ By Bridget Rutherford CONCERNS WERE sure to rise over the misspelling of a street named after the man behind a Kiwi kitchen icon. The family of Thomas John Edmonds, who founded the Edmonds Sure to Rise baking powder, has asked the city council to change Edmond St to Edmonds St in Linwood. The street was named after T J Edmonds, but somehow between 18861893, the letter ‘s’ had been removed. To correct the name, the city council has to consult with the street’s residents, because their address would have to change. The change would need to be supported by at least 85 per cent of them. John Edmonds said he had always presumed Edmond St was named after his great-grandfather, because it was next to where the former factory was. “I’d always been a bit disappointed Edmond St seemed to be misnamed.” He said T J Edmonds was inducted into the New Zealand Business Hall of Fame in July, which prompted him to get in touch with the city council about it. “I think it is important that

Merge organisations – Dalziel „„ By Bridget Rutherford

UNCERTAIN FUTURE: The Westpac bank in New Brighton.

Bid to stop bank closures •From page 1 However, Westpac spokewoman Heather Shiels said: “Our customers are increasingly using technology for their banking needs, which is resulting in fewer branch transactions.” Community group New Brighton Project has set up a facebook campaign to stop the closure. Ms Shiels said online transactions have increased by 66 per cent in five years while customers using mobile-only devices have increased from 24 to 39 per cent in the last two years. The earthquakes have also played a role in the potential closures, said Ms Shiels. “Since the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes the region has experienced significant shifts in population, which have impacted

where people are living, working and banking.” First Union, which represents bank staff, said it was “odd” for the earthquakes to be used as a reason for a branch to close particularly in Lincoln. “The stats quite clearly demonstrate the population is growing . . . we have been puzzled by it,” southern region secretary Paul Watson. Lincoln’s population is projected to grow to 9190 by 2025. ASB recently set up a branch in Lincoln. First Union will meet with Westpac’s senior officials and managers in Auckland on Monday to discuss the planned closures. Westpac is looking to transfer affected staff to other branches. The bank is also opening a new central city branch in March.

MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel yesterday signalled more shake-ups in the Christchurch rebuild could be on the horizon. Ms Dalziel said she wanted to see Regenerate Christchurch and Development Christchurch Ltd merged within the next two years. It comes a day after new Minster for Greater Christchurch Regeneration Megan Woods scrapped the preferred contractor for the Metro Sport Facility due to a $75 million budget blow out, which had the backing of Ms Dalziel. “I want to see Regenerate Christchurch and Development Christchurch merged. I want the focus of Otakaro to be the delivery of the major anchor projects that they have been given control of, just get on and do that,” she told Newstalk ZB yesterday. Regenerate Christchurch’s main tasks are coming up with plans for the residential red zone, Cathedral Square as well as other pockets in the city. DCL deals with some of the city council’s major capital pro-

jects, such as revitalising New Brighton, and provides a single point of entry for investors and developers. Ms Dalziel (left) said she wanted to speak to the Government about merging the two. “If we combine their resources, I think the city would get a better outcome and more quickly. I think that if it turned itself into more of a regeneration authority or an urban development

authority, that would enable it to utilise the legislation that it’s been given by central Government.” Ms Dalziel said she signalled the move during her mayoral campaign last year. She said it was always assumed the two would merge after five years in 2021, but she wanted it done sooner. It would require a Government legislation change, she said. •Dalziel’s column, p19

EAGLE-EYED pedestrians have found something a bit perplexing about some of the city’s traffic light crossing instructions. It appears instructions on what to do, well, cancelled each other out. At the the top of the signal on the corner of Colombo and Cashel Sts, it directed people to ‘press the button’. But below the button it said ‘please do not touch’. Huh? While some may have thought the city council is losing its marbles, it turns out the stickers had been left by persons unnamed. Said Christchurch Transport Operations Centre manager Ryan Cooney: “Council staff have been made aware of a number of stickers and they were removed yesterday (Tuesday).” Gave us a giggle.

‘Insulting’ cartoons debated in court „„ By Sam Hurley TWO controversial newspaper cartoons are “certainly insulting” but whether the images breached the Human Rights Act has become a matter of legal debate. Labour MP Louisa Wall is appealing a Human Rights Tribunal decision in the High Court at Auckland this week which found two Fairfax Media cartoons did not promote racial disharmony against Maori and Pacifika. The cartoons by award-winner Al Nisbet were published in The Press on May 30, 2013, and Marlborough Express the previous day. The images portrayed the issue of the food in schools programme, “a measure intended to mitigate some of the worst consequences of child poverty”, the Human Rights Tribunal decision from May reads. The tribunal concluded that although the cartoons were insulting, they were not likely to “excite hostility against or to bring into contempt Maori and Pacifika on the ground of their colour, race, or ethnic or national origins”. Ms Wall took exception to the images and claimed the cartoons breached the Human Rights Act

by promoting racial disharmony. Fairfax argues its cartoons were consistent with the Bill of Rights, which affords every New Zealander the right to freedom of expression, including the freedom to seek, receive, and impart information and opinions of any kind in any form. Justice Matthew Muir said at an initial hearing on November 1 that he wanted a panel to preside over the case, after expressing “some reservations” about whether he held superior qualifications to the members of the Human Rights Tribunal.

He said he was “very, very wary” and given the “huge public implications” and interest of what is a test case. Justice Muir said the panel was tasked with “looking afresh” at the question of whether there is a breach of section 61 of the Human Rights Act. Section 61 outlines the unlawfulness for any person to publish or distribute material that is threatening, abusive, or insulting and likely to excite hostility against or bring into contempt any group of persons in, or who may be coming to New Zealand, on the grounds

of the colour, race, or ethnicity or national origins. However, the legislation also reads that it shall not be a breach of the law if a newspaper, magazine, or broadcast report accurately conveys the intention of the person who published or distributed the matter or broadcast or used the words. “No-one is contending that the advertisements were not insulting, we certainly all regard them as insulting,” Justice Muir said. “Are there particularly feebleminded people or bigoted people out there that would find these

[cartoons] incite hostility and contempt?” Ms Wall’s counsel Prue Kapua said the issue was not about the cartoonist, but the depiction of Maori and Pacifika as “welfare bludgers and negligent parents” who spent their money on gambling and smokes. However, Justice Muir said that the tribunal’s decision showed New Zealand was a society that encouraged a free market of ideas in a socially liberal and tolerant country. –NZ Herald

Canterbury retirees among most three per cent above. Mr Milner said he thought more retirees were getting into cycling because it was good to stay healthy. Once the group got to Tai Tapu they stopped for a coffee and a chat, he said. Jeff Greenep, 80, agreed. He cycles about four times a week. He said he has been doing it since he was a kid. Cycling was the second most popular activity for those aged 16 and over. The most popular was walking, at 67 per cent. That was followed by cycling with 36 per cent and swimming at 33 per cent. Twenty-four per cent did equipment-based exercise, such as going to the gym, while 20 per cent went running. Cricket and hunting rounded out the top 20, with about six per cent taking part in both. For five to 10-year-olds who were surveyed, swimming was the most popular activity at 90 per cent, followed by biking, athletics, gymnastics and cross country. In the 11-14 and 15-18 age brackets, running took top spot, followed by swimming, athletics, basketball and biking.

Canterbury’s retirees are some of the most active in the country, according to a new report. It also looks at what sports Cantabrians are playing. Bridget Rutherford reports EVERY WEDNESDAY morning a group of cyclists meet at The Princess Margaret Hospital car park, jump on their bikes and head to Tai Tapu. They call themselves the Magpies. Some are doctors on their day off from work, others are nurses or mums. But most are retirees. Graeme Milner and Roy Pemberton started the group about 20 years ago. It has grown to have more than 50 members. Mr Milner, a veteran cyclist who represented New Zealand in 1964, said he loved it for the fitness and the social aspect. The 87-year-old is one of the oldest in the group – but he says age is no barrier and anyone is welcome. He reckons he will

active, major sports report shows The draft Spaces and Places Report was prepared by Sport Canterbury to outline the current and planned sporting facilities following the September 2010 and February 2011 earthquakes. As part of the report, it looked at how each code was impacted following the quakes. Sports such as tennis, athletics, bowls, golf, squash, cricket and surf life saving had seen a decline in memberships. Meanwhile, badminton, football, hockey, netball, rowing, rugby, league, swimming, touch and waterpolo had gone the other way. Certain sports with less facilities were analysed and interviewed to see what developments were under way and how they had been impacted following the quakes. Swimming appeared to be the worst hit because facilities such as QE II and Centennial Pool, were damaged or destroyed after the quakes. In 2010 the swimming membership was 1565. That dropped to 387 in 2011. In 2016 there were 1585 registered swimmers, back up to pre-quake levels, although that

only included those who were members, not people who went for leisurely swims. Planning and construction of aquatic facilities were under way, such as Eastern Recreation and Aquatic Facility and the South West Leisure Centre in Hornby. However, the Metro Sport Facility’s future is unclear, after new Minister for Greater Christchurch Regeneration Megan Woods on Tuesday announced the Government would scrap the preferred contractor to get it back on track. It came after a “thorough

review” found the budget had blown out by $75 million. A review would be done to see what the options were, which could include combining it with the proposed multi-use arena. The report said bowls had also taken a hit. The sport had 3206 members last year – 70 per cent of the number it had in 2010. Rowing had grown to 987 last year, league had been stable, while tennis had steadily declined in membership to 6063 last year. Volleyball had suffered due to

lack of playing space, the report said, and yachting and BMX had remained relatively stable. Meanwhile, football registrations had steadily increased over the past decade. Last year, there were 13,855. Currently, Mainland Football’s base is at ASB English Park. But there have been discussions about moving it to the soon to be built Nga Puna Wai. A gap was identified for speed skating facilities. The current Alpine Ice Sports and Entertainment Centre does not have a full size rink so it could

not hold national championships. Hockey had a membership of 4507 last year. But the report said it was limited by turf availability. Currently, teams are able to play at Nunweek and Marist Parks, as well as Waimakariri Hockey Turf in Rangiora. Nga Puna Wai will have two artificial turfs when it opens next year. The facility was part of a list of planned or proposed facilities for Christchurch. It joined the the multi-use arena, the reinstatement of Christchurch Adventure Park, the Christchurch Squash Club upgrade at The Cashmere Club, the Eastern Sport and Recreation Centre, South West Leisure Centre, a badminton facility in Wigram, and Celebration Church’s multi-purpose indoor sports facility. Those proposed included a multi-sport marine venue at Naval Point, National Equestrian Facility at McLean’s Island, an upgrade for Denton Park’s velodrome, the Christchurch School of Gymnastics’ new facility and the upgrade of Olympia Gym Sports.

Fire rage s, homes

at risk

Ballantynes survivors uncanny The 70th-anniversary of the Ballantynes fire was last weekend. Reporter Bridget Rutherford speaks to two survivors who have had an uncanny reunion LOIS WHEELER and Marion Hooykaas have been going to card making classes together for a decade near their Parklands homes. But it took another eight years for the friends to discover they shared another thing in common – both had escaped New Zealand’s worst fire tragedy. Forty-one people perished. Mrs Hooykaas said it was unbelievable she and Mrs Wheeler took so long to click. “It was really because being together for so long and only finding out then, it was strange.” Mrs Hooykaas said she had been at class discussing a controversial book about the Ballantynes fire written by Steven Eldred-Grigg, when Mrs Wheeler piped up and said she was in the fire too. “She’d been sitting next to me for so long.” Mrs Wheeler, who was 22 at the time, was working as a shorthand typist, while Mrs Hooykaas was a 17-year-old apprentice tailoress. Many of their friends and colleagues died. Mrs Wheeler, now 92, said every year, she can recall down to

SURVIVORS: Lois Wheeler, 92, and Marion Hooykaas, 87, both escaped the Ballantynes fire on November 18, 1947, although they did not meet until years later. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER the minute what happened that fateful November 18, 1947, day. At 3pm she was having afternoon tea with a friend who worked in the china department. Twenty minutes later, they both went back to work. Mrs Wheeler never saw her friend again.

She said staff did not know the danger they were in when a fire broke out in the cellar of one of the store’s eight central city buildings at about 3.30pm. “Ballantynes was Ballantynes, and nothing could ever happen to Ballantynes.”

She said initially, her boss had been instructed to tell staff to keep working. But they later evacuated onto Lichfield St, only to go back into the building three times to collect typewriters and filing cabinets.

“We were like sheep. We were only doing it because our boss was doing it.” The last time she went upstairs, the ceiling started coming down and they ran down the stairs to safety, she said. “The whole thing [building] combusted and was going up in flames and the roof was gone. Because I got out, I thought everybody else had.” Mrs Hooykaas said when the fire started, they were told to evacuate and take their scissors. Mrs Hooykaas said they must have been some of the last to get out. Both went back to work at Ballantynes shortly after the tragedy in temporary facilities nearby. Mrs Wheeler stayed for a few years before moving to Hay’s for more money. Mrs Hooykaas stayed until she was 23, when she got engaged. Ballantynes, the city council and Fire Service were criticised for the disaster, during a Royal Commission inquiry into the blaze. But neither Mrs Wheeler or Mrs Hooykaas feel any anger. They still shop at Ballantynes. “When I hear a siren the hair goes up on the back of my neck. It is as though it’s back to the Ballantynes fire,” Mrs Wheeler said. The cause of the fire was never determined. The Royal Commission recommended changes to fire prevention and firefighting, including evacuation drills and the installation of fire alarms.

News meeting decades after blaze Typewriters, adding machines and company records were put in a safe strongroom by some of the people killed. The inquiry found they were probably following orders which wasted “vital time” in escaping the inferno. There was no evacuation plan. Evacuation orders were made by individual department heads. There was even evidence of some staff returning from their afternoon tea being sent back to work upstairs after smoke had been seen. “Thousands of horror-stricken spectators saw two [other] girls leap from a third-floor window and crash on a ladder and veranda,” the Press Association reported at the time. “From there, unconscious, they were dragged by firemen. Their condition in hospital is satisfactory.” At least 680 people were in Ballantynes at the time of the fire – 430 staff and 250 customers. Recalls Mrs Hooykaas: “Our boss came in and he said that he was getting us out. “One of the old tailors stood at the door, held the door open and he said: ‘Take

your scissors because you can’t replace them’.” It was after the war and it was hard to get scissors. “He said: ‘Just pick up your scissors and go’. We did. We took our pay too – it was in our bags. I had a blazer; I left that. “We were quite calm when we went out of the room, but when we got down to the stairs to the cafeteria that’s when you kept saying: ‘Hurry up’; they were

walking so slowly, but it was dark.” Earlier they had stood at the windows and waved in reply to a man waving from across the street. He later told them that the roof had collapsed soon after. Ballantynes comprised eight buildings covering about 4000 sq m between Colombo, Cashel and Lichfield Sts. Some of the buildings and their basements were connected

by unauthorised openings. Fire protections were inadequate. Stairwells and lift shafts acted like chimneys, drawing hot gases into the upper areas, which rose to three levels above the ground floor. Although the cause of the fire was never established, it is known to have started in a basement at around 3.30pm. A female employee had noticed smoke. There was a delay in calling firefighters,

who arrived at 3.47pm; they were poorly equipped for the coming conflagration. Just before 4pm, the fire erupted in a flashover of hot gases. At 4.10pm Kenneth Ballantyne, a joint managing director, was the last person to escape. He climbed out a widow and scrambled down a ladder. Window panes broke, flames shot out and a cloud of black smoke rose high above the buildings. Some 200 firefighters battled the blaze, using 20 fire engines. In a 1997 television documentary, Scorched Memories, witnesses told of the heartache of seeing people at the windows. “I spotted my father in the people at the window,” said Alf Brown. “I whistled out to him but couldn’t get his attention.” At a roll call in the evening at the city’s King Edward Barracks to work out who was still missing, Mr Brown saw a Ballantynes manager. “He pointed at me and said ‘That’s Alec Brown’s son’. That’s when I knew that Dad was dead.” •Additional reporting Martin Johnston

Wedding bells beckon for fourth time

„„ By Bridget Rutherford LEANNE Crawford has had to put off her wedding three times because of a crippling illness. But she will finally marry her partner of more than eight years, Craig Corboy, next week in a wedding almost completely organised by the Canterbury Bowel and Liver Trust. Ms Crawford has Crohn’s disease and endometriosis. She began feeling ill in 2014. For months she could barely walk, lost 30kg and was constantly sick. She had to stop working and postponed her wedding three times because she kept having to go to hospital. It took almost two years for a diagnosis, and tools donated by the trust helped doctors find a treatment – so she wanted to give back when she felt better. In March she walked in The Star City2Surf 14km event with about 40 others to raise more than $4300 for the trust. As a result, the trust wanted to help her by organising her wedding. Ms Crawford said she and Mr Corboy will marry next Saturday in their Rangiora garden where he proposed. The reception will be held at West Eyreton Hall.

TRIUMPH: Leanne Crawford and Craig Corboy took part in The Star City2Surf earlier this year to raise money for the Canterbury Bowel and Liver Trust, and now the trust has organised their wedding.

Her family will arrive from the United Kingdom on Saturday. Bowel and Liver Trust general manager Margaret Fitzgerald had helped organise the wedding and would prepare food for it as well, Ms Crawford said. Kim Chan Events donated flowers, would set up the hall

and hired the equipment for free, while Christchurch Football Club had given the plates and cutlery for the reception. Shirley Worthington and John Brown were travelling from Timaru to do the catering, while Sharon Richards was icing the wedding cake.

Because Ms Crawford had lost so much weight, she said Ms Fitzgerald, along with Karen Farthing had taken in her dress. Wedding Professionals, Lisa Marie Parable Photography, Boogie Beats and celebrant Jane Godfrey had stuck with the couple even after they had to postpone several times, she said. Entire Electrical had donated money and family and friends had helped with other aspects. Ms Crawford said she never expected so many people to donate and offer to help get her up the aisle. “We are blown away with the generosity especially from people we have never met, we just want to say a huge thank you

to everyone from the bottom off our heart, we couldn’t have done it with out you all.” Ms Crawford said she will take part in the City2Surf again on March 18 to raise more money for the trust, and encouraged others to sign up. Although she cannot eat solid food, Ms Crawford said she was feeling better and walks about 7km every day. “My biggest support is my lovely husband-to-be and I can’t wait to be his wife.” •The Star City2Surf will take place on March 18. Early bird entries will be available from December 1 at http://www. city2surf.co.nz/

News Compostable food packaging at city events „„ By Bridget Rutherford THIRTY Christchurch events are likely to use compostable food packaging after a successful trial saw more than 12 tonnes diverted from landfill earlier this year. The city council wants to run Composting Food Packaging at Events Trial 2.0 at 12 of its major events over the next 18 months. They would join 21 other privately-run events. For the second trial to go ahead the city council is seeking $29,553 from the Canterbury waste joint committee at its meeting tomorrow. The funding would be used to operate the initiative at the city council-run events, which includes waste sorters who are on site to separate the compostable packaging from other rubbish. The second trial would include the city council’s upcoming New Year’s Eve event, Kite Day, Sparks, Christchurch Lantern Festival, KidsFest Lantern Parade, Botanic D’lights, Heritage Week, Guy Fawkes, and New Year’s Eve 2018. Kite Day 2019, Sparks 2019 and Christchurch Lantern Festival 2019 would also be included.

Quake theory criticised NEW ZEALAND earthquake scientists have been critical of a theory from two United States’ scientists that the frequency of earthquakes is linked to a slowing in Earth’s rotation, one saying “I tend to think of them in the context of [Moon Man] Ken Ring”. Last month, Roger Bilham, from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and Rebecca Bendick, from the University of Montana, presented a paper at a conference that posited that a year with a high number of earthquakes around the world coincided with a slowing in the rotation of the Earth. “A striking example is that since 1900 more than 80 per cent of all earthquakes on the eastern Caribbean plate boundary have occurred five years following a maximum deceleration (including the 2010 Haiti earthquake).” The paper concludes that 2017 marks six years since deceleration began in 2011, “suggesting that the world has now entered a period of enhanced global seismic productivity with a duration of

at least five years.” GNS Science have commented that the paper has not been peer-reviewed and has no detail to examine, while Dr Virginia Toy from the Department of Geology at the University of

Otago says correlations are often made between natural events and other phenomena. “Some of these yield statistically defendable correlations; others don’t,” she said.

“I tend to think of them in the context of Ken Ring . . . the man who writes about apparent statistical correlations between the phase of the moon and the weather. “[The Americans’ paper] sounds like we will get a jump from six to 20 large earthquakes per year. I don’t think this is likely.” Dr Tim Stahl, a lecturer in tectonic geology from Canterbury University, says it is difficult to judge the scientific merit of the claims being made until additional testing is carried out by other research groups. – NZ Herald

Higher fines fail to deter litter bugs „„ By Bridget Rutherford A NEW graduated scale to fine people for littering has failed to deter people from doing it. The city council changed the rules in June last year by introducing a new graduated scale for fines, depending on the type and amount of rubbish dumped. In the past, the maximum fine was $100. That increased to $400 under the new rules. But figures released under the Local Government and Official Information Act show of the 389 litter and roadside litter complaints the city council received since the rule changes, just two fines were issued. Both of those were $200 fines. A city council spokeswoman said the number of complaints remained consistent with previous years. “One of the constraints of the Litter Act is that the council officer must personally witness the offence and/or be able to identify the person committing the offence to be able to issue an infringement notice,” she said. “Therefore, the level of infringements issued is low in comparison to the number of complaints.” The new system had five tiers. Less than 1-litre of rubbish

DUMPED: Higher fines have failed to deter people from dumping their rubbish in public places, like here in South Brighton Domain. ​

dropped would be a $100 fine, between one to 20-litres was a $200 fine, 20-120-litres was $300, while more than 120-litres or hazardous, offensive or commercial material was $400. City council head of regulatory compliance Tracey Weston said the maximum fine of $400 was intended to be a greater deterrent. She said nearly all the com-

plaints were received after the litter had been found. “This means that there is little, if any, evidence of the identity of the person responsible for the dumping,” she said. “There is little the council can do to increase the number of fines issued due to the evidential challenges around establishing the identity of the offender.” Ms Weston said the city

council spent about $120,000 in the last financial year removing rubbish that had been dumped. The residential red zone had been a hot spot for dumping after the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The city council had not issued any infringement notices in the years leading up to the rule changes due to a “change in personnel.”

Online services at council in for overhaul „„ By Bridget Rutherford RESIDENTS WILL soon be able to book, apply, request and pay for more city council services online as part of a major system overhaul. The city council is developing a new system called My Council, which would be part of its website. It will take three years to complete, and is currently in the first phase. City council citizens and community general manager Mary Richardson said My Council was programme of work designed to give residents choice for the services it provided. The digitalisation of its services was at the core of the programme, she said. “This means citizens will have more visibility over the things that matter to them, whether it’s rates, rubbish, dog registration, building consents, consultation or something else. “We want to increase self-service so people can easily book, apply, request and pay for our services online anywhere and at any time. We also want to create new and innovative ways for citizens to engage with us,’’ she said.

Sports facility cost creates a ‘window of opportunity’ WHEN THE new minister, Hon Megan Woods, contacted me about the true cost of proceeding with the early contractor involvement process for our long-awaited Metro Sports Facility, I already knew that they were going to be receiving advice along the lines that they did. And that was $75 million over budget. I was not at all surprised when the incoming Government said ‘enough is enough’. I would too if it were our decision as a council. The cost sharing agreement caps the city’s contribution to the Metro Sports Facility at $147 million, which is still an eye watering sum of money. When the minister said that it was going to take a few short months for a build contract to go to tender, I was really pleased. For me, this has created a ‘window of opportunity’, where we as a city can look at what we really need, and to get the different sporting codes together to double-check that what was driving decisions five years ago is still relevant today.

Lianne Dalziel

No-one will be surprised by my attitude to this, as I have always said that a flaw in the blueprint approach was the lack of a feedback loop once the blueprint was announced. It was as if it was set in stone and yet, as I said, what may have been the case five-years ago, may not be now. This window of opportunity will give the city that feedback loop we have needed and enable us to think about the different elements of the Metro Sports Facility and the multi-use arena, as well as some of our existing facilities. What is the potential, for example, at the Horncastle Arena when we build what would be the largest covered arena in the country?

Five years later, should we revisit some of the co-location arguments with the relevant sporting codes at the table? We have been given this moment in time where everything can be examined without further delays. What excites me is the possibility that we could end up speeding things up and reducing overall costs, while providing the city with the sporting and event infrastructure it needs – now and for future generations. That’s the win-win I will be looking for. •If you want to ask Ms Dalziel a question, email mayor@ccc.govt.nz. Put Reader’s Question in the subject line. •Megan Woods’ column, p20

The $75m budget blowout for the Metro Sports Facility, which was to be built in the area bordered by Moorhouse Ave, Stewart, St Asaph and Antigua Sts, has seen the Government scrap plans and head back to the drawing board Jane Wilson-Fouracre – Unbelievable, even after all this time and money it’s back to the drawing board. Let’s finally get a decent sports facility in a location that is near to transport links, on decent land and has space for parking. Only city in the country that doesn’t have one . . . and that’s before earthquakes. Danielle Ashcroft – Considering the contractor prices what is designed, maybe the design and client

Woods determined to fix $75m blowout LIKE MOST Cantabrians, I’m very keen to see faster progress in our central city. The sight of big vacant lots where major new facilities are meant to have been built by now simply isn’t good enough. It’s something I’m determined to fix. That’s why one of the very first pieces of work I’ve started as a new minister has been a thorough line-by-line review of the Anchor Projects. I want to ensure these projects can be delivered faster, with timelines we can trust, in a manner we can afford. This review has already thrown up some real issues. The biggest of these was the

discovery of a $75 million budget blowout on the Metro Sports Facility – a facility that is already years behind schedule. As an incoming minister, finding out the previous Government knew about this blowout since July was very disappointing. I know most Cantabrians will agree that when a budget blows

out by $75 million, you can’t keep writing blank cheques with taxpayers’ money, especially when the project keeps being delayed. It’s worth remembering, under the last Government’s timeline, the facility was meant to open in the first part of last year – yet all we have at the moment is another big empty space

in our central city. Any suggestion we could ignore this blowout is nonsense. If we had continued on the previous Government’s path, I would have had to go back to Cabinet and ask for taxpayers to keep reaching into their pockets. That’s why the decision was made to cancel the early contractor involvement process, and direct Ōtākaro to finish the design work themselves, then go to market to complete the construction of the building. This will give us an option to deliver the project within the budget set by the previous Government. I’ve also asked officials to use

that time to conduct an urgent review of the plans for the facility. We need to check if the assumptions made about this project in 2012 still hold up five years later, or if there might be better, quicker ways to deliver the sporting facilities that Canterbury needs. After years of delays, this new Government’s priority is getting things happening – breaking down the roadblocks and getting the projects we need back on track. •Megan Woods is the Minister of Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Heather Andersen and Mitch MacDonald (right) have been labelled the villains of My Kitchen Rules New Zealand but The Star revealed they are not so “awful” after all Vanessa Henry – I got to meet them both at an event last week. They were really down to earth, funny and pretty genuine sort of people. Funny thing is on the show they actually give fair scores backed up with genuine reasons for the scores they give. Pretty noticeable that not all of the teams do this.

Police say the seizure of 49kg of methamphetamine with a street value of $50 million was the largest bust in the South Island

David Lindsay – Easy answer . . . don’t put yourselves on reality TV, it’s happened to those before you and it will keep happening, no sympathy. Nic Davies – I like them. Bugger to hear what was said to them but if you go in a show like that you have to expect this. Kim Johanson – If that’s how you portray yourself on TV, expect backlash. Only 55 percent of fines issued to freedom campers were paid, according to city council staff

Mary Baycroft – Great work Christchurch police. Keep that off our streets.

Krysha Wells – That’s because they are going (and) they do not care, maybe it is time to stop them at the airport on the way out? Candice Johnson – Passport info should be taken, and should be flagged if they

try and leave without paying. Tourists are having a laugh at how soft NZ is. Pete Hustwick – It’s all really quite simple. You clamp them. And when the fine is paid in full in cash, then they can get under way

again. It would only take a few for the word to get around. We are way too nice in this country. Tiffany Cavanaugh – We can’t leave the country without paying our fines, tourists shouldn’t be able to either.

Kim Brown – Good job. I hate this drug with a passion and I personally love the fact that it won’t be hitting our streets. And hope the mongrels that tried to import it into our beautiful country get sent down for a very long time. Kevin Garty – Excellent work police. Now please court system, put these guys away for a very long time and go after every asset they have.

Bid to reunite family with soldier’s WW1 relic

War ID: Edward Arthur Kermode survived World War 1 and now an Englishman who found a relic of his from the war is trying to trace his descendants.

his grandson, then I’d be very pleased to get that,” Mr Murray said. Edward Arthur Kermode was born at Isle of Man in the Irish Sea in 1895. His mother, a Mrs Goulding, came from the Devonshire market town of Honiton. At the outbreak of war in 1914, gunner Kermode was working as

an engineer in Christchurch. A year later, the 20-year-old bachelor, with the stature of a jockey, standing at 160cm and weighing just 55kg, enlisted. He left with the New Zealand Field Artillery and served in Egypt and France. Having survived the war, he returned to Christchurch and was discharged in 1919, the war

records show. Mr Murray says he’d happily send the bullet casing and note to New Zealand if the rightful owners came forward. “If it was in an antiques shop, it’d probably be a couple of quid,” he told the NZ Herald. “But I’ve got quite a strong sense of social and family history and I hate it when people throw

things away that are a piece of personal history. It’d be better than just lying in a drawer here.” The Herald contacted Alastair Kermode who lives at Lincoln. Last year, he visited Ypres and was interested in whether any of his forefathers fought on the Western Front. He doubted any family links to the gunner Kermode he saw listed on the battlefield memorials. But, when talking to the Herald, he wondered whether Edward Arthur Kermode was related to him, given that his family history information says they also emigrated from the Isle of Man. “It’s possible. My grandfather, with I think 13 kids in the family, all came out here from Isle of Man,” Kermode said. He wanted to ask other relatives and hunt for “concrete evidence” of a link to the WW1 veteran, but was interested in talking further with Mr Murray. •Anyone with information or suspected family links to Edward Arthur Kermode can contact David Murray via kurt.bayer@nzherald.co.nz.

„„ By Kurt Bayer AN ENGLISHMAN who uncovered a Cantabrian’s battlefield identification note rolled inside a World War I bullet casing is attempting to reunite the rare artefact with the old soldier’s descendants. David Murray was holidaying near Ypres, Belgium, about 40 years ago when he bought a box of mixed WW1 memorabilia. It included a German cartridge case and bullet that has sat in a drawer at his Manchester home for decades. But last year, he took a closer look at the bullet case and found a piece of paper coiled inside it. After several hours, with the aid of medical tweezers, he managed to extract the note which read: ‘Gunner E. A. Kermode - Headquarters Staff N.Z.F.A. 7/2058 France’. Mr Murray understands that even with the issue of ‘dog tags’, many soldiers put personal details inside things like cartridge cases for identification purposes if they were killed. Now, he wants to trace gunner Kermode’s descendants to return the item to its rightful home. “His grandsons could still be alive and well and, if I was

Mental as Anything for Selwyn Sounds Audience can expect friendship and silliness from Aussie rockers

„„ By Julia Evans DURING A Mental as Anything gig in 1978, Andrew McArthur demolished an entire box of KFC chicken, 16 pieces. “No trouble,” he said. He’s had the nickname Greedy Smith ever since. McArthur and his fellow Mental as Anything bandmates will be flying from Sydney, set to play Selwyn Sounds on March 3. The festival at Lincoln Domain follows last year’s event, which saw a star studded list of Kiwi acts perform in front of about 8000 people. But this year’s Selwyn Sounds has added a couple of Australians to the bill. Mental as Anything are joined by Jimmy Barnes. Although Mental as Anything still has a bit of a New Zealand connection. “Until 2000 we had two Kiwis in the band,” he said.

AUSSIE ROCKERS: Mental as Anything are ready to play alongside fellow Australian Jimmy Barnes at Selwyn Sounds. ​ Chris and Peter O’Doherty were part of the band playing lead guitar and bass from when it formed 41 years ago in 1976 – the brothers were born in Auckland but moved to Sydney before they were teenagers. McArthur said they’re both

full-time visual artists now. “There wouldn’t be an Australian music industry if you took away all the Kiwis,” he said. “It’s cross-cultural pollination.” That pollination even includes McArthur’s girlfriend who was

born in Christchurch. So he said the band always looks forward to a trip across the ditch. “I’ve got the loveliest memories of touring with The Exponents … we did a great show in Christchurch with them,” he said. McArthur promised Selwyn Sounds would be no different. Although he did have one piece of advice: “Pack your sunscreen.” During the March set audiences can expect “a bit of friendship” and “a bit of silliness.” “People will be really surprised at how much of our stuff they know. We play songs people will like and try to win over the punter.”

Mental as Anything has spent a lot of time “polishing the old stuff” in preparation. “We’re always playing. In 40 years, the last time I had six weeks off was 1990 when I fell off a horse,” McArthur said. But the band has such an impressive back catalogue, McArthur said the music he’s currently listening to is Mental as Anything. Just so he can remember the songs. “It’s been 40 years since we wrote some of it. You forget,” he said. But even though the band has been together for more than four decades, Mental as Anything is still releasing new music. Its latest work 5 Track EP was released earlier this year.

TEST: Stellar are set to re-unite for Selwyn Sounds in March at Lincoln Domain. ​

Group to reunite for Lincoln music festival „„ By Julia Evans BOH RUNGA has just opened her own jewellery store in Ponsonby, Auckland. But on March 3 she’ll be getting Stellar back together and heading to Lincoln Domain for Selwyn Sounds. The day-long music festival follows this year’s inaugural event, which saw Kiwi music heavyweights the Jordan Luck Band, Mi-Sex and Dragon play to a crowd of about 8000. Growing up in Hornby with sister Bic, Runga said she hadn’t spent much time in the small town but had been to several of Lincoln University’s notorious parties. “My father went to Lincoln College but I just went to parties,” she said. She’s looking forward to playing so close

to home, she said “people are always happy you’ve come to play.” But Stellar isn’t officially back together. The March festival could be a bit of a test, Runga hasn’t ruled out a full reunion. “I’m not sure if we are back together per se, we are doing some gigs and we always had fun doing that. We’ll see where us hanging out again leads,” Runga said. Alongside a reunited Stellar, fans will get the chance to see Jimmy Barnes, The Mockers and The Feelers. In the meantime, she said if you’re in Auckland, head down Ponsonby Rd to Boh Runga Jewellery: “I’ll probably be there!” •Selwyn Sounds will be held on March 3 at Lincoln Domain from 11am-8.30pm.

Central Brighton school site may be sold to developers „„ By Sophie Cornish THE CENTRAL New Brighton School site could be sold to private developers. A community meeting was scheduled to be held last night with a key focus being the future of the Roy Stokes Hall which is on the site. There is concern the hall will be also demolished as part of any new development on the Seaview Rd site. Said Renew Brighton manager Sylvia Smyth: “The hall was built for and has always functioned as both a community and school asset. It has been a treasured by the community for over 40 years, including serving as an emergency centre after the February 22, 2011, earthquake.” “The site is destined for sale and the community have not been consulted at

all in this process. We have asked for a pause in this process so that the community has the space and time to decide what comes next,” said Miss Smyth. Renew Brighton will host tomorrow’s meeting with the Christchurch Circus Trust, which leases the hall. The school was closed at the end of 2015. The Ministry of Education is in the process of disposing of the site. Crown agencies and Ngai Tahu have said no to buying it, leaving the way clear for private developers

to move in. The hall was completed in 1977 after a large fundraising effort from the school committee, which raised $108,000 of the $150,000 it cost to establish the hall. “Hundreds” of members of the community took part in the fund-raising effort, led by the school’s committee chairman Roy Stokes, said Miss Smyth. The school committee, along with members of the community, ran housie nights twice a week for 15 years to raise the money.

People with Diabetes Diabetes Christchurch and many other societies in this district are delighted to be collaborating with the Lions Clubs District 202E. Lions Clubs International recently adopted diabetes as one of their new core projects. In July this year, it was announced by Naresh Aggarwal, the Lions Clubs International President, at the 100th Convention held in Chicago, who said that Lions Clubs will not sit on the sidelines as the disease “diabetes” mounts. We will be in the thick of efforts to prevent and treat the disease. He formally announced their new commitment to curtailing diabetes. Echoing Helen Keller’s appeal to Lions in 1925 at their convention to become Knights of the Blind, (Keller Johnson-Thompson, Keller’s great grand-niece – who also spoke at this convention), urged Lions to take on this new challenge of diabetes. The Diabetes Christchurch Society have now had several positive meetings with the 202E District Governor, Peter Gamble and Sam Lilley (District Global Service Team Leader) to discuss diabetes awareness talks and are in the process of helping to organise many of the Lions Clubs, (including the West Coast, Nelson, Marlborough, Kaikoura and Canterbury) who will all help, support and participate in various diabetes awareness programs, activities, projects and fundraising initiatives to help support the local diabetes societies in this district. Manager of Diabetes Christchurch Inc, Lynne Taylor said she was absolutely delighted with this marvellous support being offered towards the promotion on diabetes awareness and looks forward to raising the profile and education about diabetes. With these statistics and concerns in mind, Lions Clubs have taken action through this international initiative and both Peter Gamble and Sam Lilley said their Lions Groups will work hard to focus on this chronic condition and their work will support diabetes awareness, education, prevention, detection, control and research throughout the coming years. Diabetes Christchurch Inc is a support organisation for Canterbury people who have diabetes, their family and friends. We offer support, information, advocacy and non-clinical education on all aspects of diabetes. Our shop has a wide range of products including blood glucose meters and strips, lancets, fingerpickers, ketone test strips, cookbooks, hypo treatments, medical grade shoes and socks, travel bags, our popular Jok ‘n Al sauces and toppings, and sugar-free treats. Via our website: www.diabetes.christchurch.co.nz all these diabetes products are also available online. Our programmes span from awareness to prevention, to engagement and support. The society is about supporting people with diabetes and is about making meaningful connections with those people affected by or at risk of diabetes. We want every person affected by, or at risk of diabetes in Canterbury to have access to the support needed to live a full and active life. Our office/shop is on the Ground Floor, 550 Hagley Avenue, phone 378-6266, and open Monday to Friday from 9am4pm. Our staff can help you find further information or make an appointment for the subsidised podiatry toenail clipping service.

All members receive our Viewpoint newsletter, which includes information on all aspects of diabetes, and updates on local events, as well as local, national and international diabetes research. We would love to include your stories about diabetes in this. Email Lynne, the manager, lynne. taylor@cdhb.health.nz Our local campaign is focussing on raising awareness of how the healthy food choices can be the easy food choice and the various steps that individuals can take to make informed decisions about what they eat. Special focus will be placed on the importance of starting the day with a healthy breakfast. Exercising 30 minutes per day, testing your blood glucose as recommended by your general practice medical team and getting support, information and advocacy from your local society. The society is here to help educate and inform people with diabetes, to promote healthy lifestyles and effective diabetes selfmanagement for optimal diabetes control.

Peter Gamble, District Governor of Lions Clubs District 202E with Diabetes Christchurch Manager, Lynne Taylor look forward to proactively working together to promote diabetes awareness.

QUESTION

I was given a Daphne in late 2016. Planted it facing east, however it did not do well so I put it in a pot in April this year with potting mix and a bit of acid fertiliser. Unfortunately, it is giving up. I love Daphne, what am I doing wrong?

Today’s winning question came from Pauline & Fred. Congratulations!

ANSWER

In general terms, Daphne are not the easiest of shrubs to cultivate. They are incredibly rewarding with their perfume during winter months, but quite often a difficult plant to establish in the garden.

z

Part of the problem lies in the method of production before they reach the garden centre. They are often field grown in nurseries and then dug up and potted for sale. Daphne do not like root disturbance and often can be seen in some garden centers with yellow leaves, leaves falling or the leaves in a drooping position. Selection of a very healthy specimen at the time of purchase is critical. In the garden, they have a preference for welldrained soil, rich in compost and in a position receiving good light, but not baking in hot summer sun. Once established, Daphne will thrive requiring only a moderate amount of attention. Daphne Odora Rubra is by far the most successful home garden species. While they can be grown in containers, ensure the container is large enough for full root development and has sufficient drainage holes to avoid the potting mix becoming sodden. For more information and expert advice, check out How to Grow guides www.daltons.co.nz/how-to-guides Product to try: Daltons Garden Time Potting Mix

Keeping up with kumara „„ By Henri Ham LIKE POTATOES, kumara would have to be one of those vegetables that is a pretty regular feature in my pantry. They’re versatile (there’s a long list of dishes I can add kumara to) and they taste great. Each seedling needs to be planted around 50cm to 1m from the next, so you do need a bit of space to have a kūmara crop. It’s important that you raise a mound of soft soil for the kumara to spread

out in. Cultivate your soil with a rake and then mound it up in to a hill around 40cm high. Next make a small trench approximately 5cm deep and lay the seedling so that the root is lying in the trench parallel to the top of the soil, rather than pushing the root down like you might with another vegetable. Make sure you bend the seedling so the leaves are sticking out of the top of the soil (a J shape). This will ensure the plant’s roots (via the leaves) get plenty of

warmth from the sun. Water gently – it’s important not to water forcefully as this might make the mound flatten out or the plant roll off the mound. Do this for the first few days and then ensure they get some water weekly. Depending on what summer is like this year you may not need to do any extra watering at all. But if it’s hot and dry keep an eye on things and water at least weekly. When you know they’re ready, harvest very gently. Broken kumara won’t store.

PRISTINE: The Lower Town is nestled around the base of the Place Royale.

Quebec – clinging to Gallic traditions „„ By Mike Yardley IT IS like a grand evocative set, a landscape spanning 400 years, bestowed with World Heritage protection in 1985. Old Quebec is the only North American walled city beyond Mexico, underpinning its proud sense of historical continuity. A city that clings to her Frenchspeaking heritage and Gallic traditions, the cradle of French North America, where the dream of New France was born and died. The Old City comprises the Upper Town, surrounded by fortifications and strutting the craggy heights of Diamond Cape, while the Lower Town is nestled around its base, fanning out from Place Royale. I started my exploratory at this compact and photogenic plaza which the locals consider as the birthplace of French America. It is where the famed French explorer Samuel de Champlain made his home away from home in 1608, declaring it French ter-

ritory. There’s still a bust of Louis XIV, the Sun King, in the centre of the plaza, installed in 1686, which was the town’s bustling marketplace in the 17th and 18th centuries. Fifty years ago, the harbourside district was reborn and rehabilitated, with antique shops, bistros, and chic boutique hotels breathing renewed atmosphere into the plaza. Dominating the square is Notre-Dame-des-Victoires, Québec’s oldest stone church, built in 1688 after an inferno razed many Lower Town homes. Built atop the ruins of Champlain’s first outpost, British cannons smashed the church during the 1759 siege, which was lustily restored four years later. Its paintings, altar, and large model boat suspended from the ceiling, were brought by early settlers to ensure safe voyages. Unsurprisingly, the church is one of the most coveted locations for weddings in Canada. It’s fully booked for the next two years. Rue du Petit-Champlain is

STRATEGIC: Hotel Chateau Frontenac is on the site where former French and British governors once held power.

arguably the prettiest street in the city, flanked by impeccably restored merchant houses and fur trading posts, now brimming with bistros, art galleries and handicraft boutiques. Natural-fibre weaving, Inuit carvings, hand-painted silks, local fashion design, and enamelled copper crafts are among the trademark specialties for sale here. After founding the settlement in the Lower Town, Champlain relocated its heart to the more easily defendable Upper Town, atop Diamond Cape. Originally the two districts were connected by the vividlynamed Breakneck Staircase, a gut-busting stairway first built in 1635. Originally built in wood, the current steel staircase replaced it in 1968. It’s no problem tottering down, but a hell of a thigh-burner clambering back up. Save your energy and opt for the funicular when ascending. I’m a funicular fanatic from way back and Quebec’s cliffclimbing contraption is a classic. It’s actually one of the region’s

oldest businesses, hauling humanity since 1879. The funicular coughs you out onto Dufferin Tce, which occupies the site of the fort and chateau which served as the official residence for the governors of New France, including the British rulers, until it was destroyed by fire in 1834. The governor at the time, Lord Durham, decided to build a sprawling cliff-side wooden promenade on top of the chateau ruins, which has been progressively enlarged now extending for a kilometre along the cliffs of Cape Diamond. Lurking beneath the terrace, the archaeological crypt of the chateau’s remains and the seat of power for French and British governors. A major excavation project has revitalised the ruins and the relics, which you can now walk through, underneath the terrace. The terrace eventually leads you all the way down to the Plains of Abraham, where a 20min battle changed the course of history and a continent’s destiny. It was

on this field that Britain’s General James Wolfe and the French General de Montcalm crossed swords and both died, climaxing in the British army conquering Quebec, spelling the death on New France. It’s a peaceful city park now, full of winding walking paths and bicycle trails, and a favourite spot for cross-country skiers, come winter. Adjoining the park, the British reinforced the city’s defences and built a colossal starshaped fortress, the Citadel. It is the largest fortified base in North America still occupied by troops. The regiment turns out in scarlet tunics and bearskin caps for the changing of the guard, daily. In a city that has borne witness to such dramatic military history, the Fort Museum brings it all to life with a riveting sound and light show cast across a giant diorama, re-enacting the area’s important battles. It’s all staged across a 37 sq m replica of the city – complete with ships, cannons, and hundreds of miniature soldiers lined up for battle. www.quebecregion.com FAST FACTS: •Wherever you choose to stay in Quebec, lock in your accommodation through Hotels.com, which was fast, efficient and packed with great deals.

Chicago brings ‘all that jazz’ to Court

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding PREPARE TO step into the roaring 20s as one of the city’s largest theatre companies brings crime, razzle-dazzle, scandal and all that jazz to the stage. The Court Theatre will stage one of the longest running shows in Broadway history as its major musical for the year – Chicago. And the show’s iconic role of the fidgety and innocent yet selfish character Roxie Hart will be played by National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art graduate Nomi Cohen. Having grown up watching the 2002 film starring Catherine ZetaJones and Renée Zellweger, she Nomi Cohen considers Roxie one of the most exciting roles she has played. “I find she is a fidgety sort of person and has a really unstable sort of energy . . . you will probably notice she isn’t necessarily super consistent with the sort of person she is because she doesn’t really know who she is,” Cohen, 25, said. Set in Chicago during prohibition, it focuses on the concept of corruption and celebrity criminals during the 1920s.

Cohen said she certainly does not plan on clawing her way to the top, but she shares similarities to her character in terms of drive and determination. “I think we all want to be loved and want to be admired and want to be good at what we do and be recognised. Originally from Flagstaff, Arizona, Cohen moved to Christchurch when she was eight and has been based in Auckland for the past four years. It has been a tough road for Cohen since her graduation from the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art in 2012.

“You graduate and you think success means a constant job. I think that is simply not true,” she said. But she said when she looks back she has been

To book tickets, go to https:// courttheatre.org.nz/ lucky to work in the performing arts most of the time. “I think there is an exciting and important conversation starting to happen over the last year that talks about the mental health of performing artists,” she said. She said no one can prepare you for what it feels like to have swallow your pride and take a normal job because you have to pay the bills. “Find ways of getting through the tough times that don’t involve things that aren’t good for your body. Drugs and alcohol can be quite a big issue within our industry,” she said. Some of her favourite work she has performed includes her own award-winning show S+S Song & Cabaret: PUSS. Growing up, Cohen saw no other option than to go to performing arts school. She said when she was younger and “beyond the age of cute”, she would create entire outfits out of scarfs or dress up as a cat and drink milk out of a saucer on the ground. TRANSFORMED: Nomi Cohen is set to play the lead role of Roxie Hart in The Court Theatre’s production of Chicago. Cohen is a fan of the 2002 film starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Richard Gere and Renée Zellweger as Roxy,

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

HOW TO ROAST THE PERFECT WHOLE LEG OF LAMB

STRAWBERRY AND MARSHMALLOW PARFAIT Ingredients

Whole leg of lamb 1-2 tbsp oil Rock salt Freshly ground black pepper 4-5 sprigs fresh rosemary

½ cup Marshmallows, small 350g Sugar 500g Strawberries, hulled 6 Eggs, 4 yolks, 2 whole 2 cups Cream, thick 500g Strawberries, fresh, for garnish

Take the lamb out of the fridge 30min before cooking to allow it to come to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 170 deg C. Place a wire rack in a roasting tray, place the lamb on the rack and brush the meat with the oil and then season with the rock

Directions To prepare the tin, line a narrow terrine mould about 30cm x 10cm with plastic wrap. Set some of the marshmallows along the bottom with some strawberry slices. Place the strawberries in a saucepan with half the sugar. Bring to a gentle simmer over a low heat. The juices will come out, so there is no need to add water. Simmer for no more than 2min, then remove from the heat and mash or purée the mixture. Return it to the pan and set aside. Use an electric beater to whisk the egg yolks and whole eggs with the remaining sugar until thick and mousse-like. Return the strawberry and sugar

mixture to the heat and bring to a simmer. With the beater still running, tip this hot mixture into the eggs and continue whisking until it is really thick and well incorporated. The hot sugar and strawberries “cook” the egg yolk, so it is not raw. Whip the cream until it reach-

salt and freshly ground black pepper. Rub the lamb with the rosemary sprigs leaving them in the roasting dish. Place the meat into the oven and roast at 160 deg C, allowing 30min per 500g. To test if the meat is cooked, use a skewer to pierce the leg at the thickest part, going through to the bone. If the juices are clear, the lamb is cooked. Remove the lamb from the oven, cover the meat with some aluminum foil and then set the lamb aside to rest, for approximately 15-20min. Carve the meat and serve with your favourite vegetables and plenty of gravy.

es soft peaks, then fold it gently through. Add the remaining marshmallows to the mixture. Spoon it into the prepared tin. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 24 hours. To serve, cut the parfait into slices, surround with sliced strawberries and place in a cup.

Selwyn Motorfest and Family Fun Day Sunday 26th November, 10am-3pm

Jones Road Auto

Head to the Jones Road Auto Selwyn Local business Motors and more on display supports local A great day’s entertainment is on order for the inaugural Jones Road Auto Selwyn Motor Fest and Family Fun Day. Hours of planning and work have gone into making this a great day out and there will be something for everyone in the family, especially motor enthusiasts. Covering 30 hectares, the Jones Road Auto Selwyn Motor Fest and Family Fun Day will be a huge affair with hundreds of cars, trucks, motorcycles, motors, tractors, steam engines and interesting displays, as well as market and food stalls. The first of its kind for the district, this event has attracted considerable interest with over 200 show vehicles registered so far. Motor vehicles on display will range from a 1914 Model T to late model cars like a 2014 Corvette and 2017 Lotus 7. The Ellesmere Vintage Club, Vintage Speedway and RATEC Motorsport will be there, while the Canterbury Mustang Club are making this day an official club event. “The grounds look fantastic with the grass cut and baled for seating. There’ll be something for everyone with a great show of motor vehicles and wide variety of stalls and entertainment throughout

community

the day,” says Selwyn District Councillor Craig Watson who is on the organising committee. Craig says the event will be a fete with a motor focus, cool activities and displays. Local emergency services including St John ambulances; vintage and car clubs; rally cars; the New Zealand Trucking Association; the Selwyn District Council; Residents’ Association; Selwyn Parenting Network; and other community groups will be present. There will be plenty for the children too, with a Bunnings Warehouse construction display, bouncy castles, face painting, pony rides, steam engine rides and more. Thirty plus market stalls will offer something for everyone, from motoring paraphernalia to children’s clothing and Tupperware, with an additional 15 food stalls and four coffee vendors providing a range of cuisine. Relax and listen to the music of Shed 24 and Lee Martin after strolling around the exhibits and motors on display.

OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW

Supporting St John

When Nigel and Lisa Fleck heard about plans for a motor fest they were keen to get involved, leading to Jones Road Auto becoming major sponsor for the event. With a shared interest in cars and both Nigel and Lisa driving their own classic cars, the idea of holding a family oriented motor fest in Selwyn appealed, especially as it is a fundraiser for St John. “With it being a family event and fundraiser for such a good cause, it was important for us to be involved,” says Lisa who with Nigel own and operate Jones Road Auto and Selwyn Auto. “Participation in this event allows us to give something back to the community especially when St John helps so many people.” You will be able to chat to the team from Jones Road Auto and Selwyn Auto at the Jones Road Auto Selwyn Motor Fest and Family Fun Day.

The Selwyn Central St John branch has responsibility for raising $150,000 towards their local operation. All money from the Jones Road Auto Selwyn Motor Fest and Family Fun Day will go to supporting the Leeston and Rolleston stations, ambulances and vital services offered by St John throughout a district that covers a considerable geographic area.

Plug-in Prius takes charge „„ By Ross Kiddie I GET the impression we are on the cusp of a dramatic change in the way automobiles are built, well, more specifically, the way they are powered. Some manufacturing companies have already announced a phasing out of the internal combustion engine while others are rapidly increasing development of electric cars. Add to that the desire by many governments to increase the electric vehicle fleet, including New Zealand, and the stage is set for an electric revolution. In New Zealand at present there are several plug-in, electric-only models in our new car market, and there are many others available pre-owned through direct imports from Japan, and if you take into account the multitude of hybrid models available new, then a definite wind of change can be felt. The car that started the hybrid revolution, Toyota’s Prius, is not available here new as a plug-in, even though it is marketed extensively in Japan and the United States. However, if you are keen to join the plug-in brigade, yet find the cost of buying electric quite prohibitive, then Toyota may still have the answer. Toyota New Zealand is importing preowned, low kilometre Prius models direct from Japan,

TOYOTA PRIUS PHEV: Pre-owned from Toyota’s Signature Class operation.

they are refurbished at Toyota’s Thames Signature Class facility before offered to the dealer network. Toyota New Zealand made one of these available for evaluation, and the first thing you notice is that it still has that easy-to-drive operation that we have come to know in Prius, it is intuitive and the hybrid system is still very much intact, the plug-in facility is an extra, it’s there to offer electric-only travel. When battery energy runs low, the four-cylinder 1.8-litre petrol mechanism cuts in to work in the way that hybrids have now become familiar. Because the evaluation car was pre-owned I didn’t take stock of the fuel usage benefits Prius offers, except to say new Prius is rated with a 3.4-litre per 100km (82mpg) combined cycle fuel usage average.

The biggest range of vehicles in one location

Meredith sets out to win Canty Open HISTORY: James Meredith is hoping to put his name alongside some of the country’s tennis greats, including (inset from top) Onny Parun, Alistair Hunt and Mark Nielson.

„„ By Gordon Findlater CHRISTCHURCH’S top tennis player will look to put his name alongside some of the greats from the past 116 years when he competes for one of Canterbury’s oldest sporting trophies at Wilding Park this weekend. James Meredith, 27, is the No 1 seed for the Canterbury Open, a title he came within touching distance of two years ago. The open was first played in 1901 and contains some of the biggest names in New Zealand tennis over the past century, including the likes of Onny Parun, Brian Fairlie, Alistair Hunt, David Lewis and Mark Nielson. “To have my name alongside names like that would be an honour,” said Meredith. The Cashmere player is looking to go one step better than the last time he played in the open in 2015. He was defeated in the final by French Open doubles champion Michael Venus in three sets 4-6, 7-5, 4-6. “2015 was really special playing in front of a home crowd at Cashmere. The atmosphere there was awesome and I’m hoping we get another good showing at Wilding Park this weekend,” said Meredith. His chances of lifting the title received a massive boost yesterday when 2016 champion, Rhett Purcell, of Auckland, withdrew from the open due to injury. Meredith has been on a good

run of form leading into the open. He is unbeaten playing for Cashmere in the Christchurch inter-club competition and has also been travelling to Auckland to play in its inter-club competition. In Auckland, he has had only one loss playing singles to Australian world No 264 Dayne Kelly 4-6, 5-7. His best result this

year was a 6-1, (retired) win over New Zealand Davis Cup player Finn Tearney on November 10. The open will also feature a handful of promising local juniors. Current 16 and under national champion, Dylan Heap, has been seeded second. This weekend could prove the perfect launching pad for the 17-year-old to

show how far he has progressed as a player. The last six months has seen him develop his game on clay in Europe as well as play in a number of junior tournaments across Asia. Heap will face a number of challenges on his side of the draw with Waimairi’s big serving Remi Feneon, national 14 and under champion Reece Felck, and Elmwood No 1 Hayden Joblin all on the stacked side of the draw. The winner of the championship will walk away with NZ$1800. The total prize pool of $10,000 will be split equally across the men’s and women’s competiton. The 16-strong men’s tournament will be made up of 11 seeded players, with 10 others playing off for the remaining five spots on Friday. The opening two rounds will be played on Saturday. The semi-finals and final will take place on Sunday. The women’s open consists of an eight-strong draw, with Australian Emily Martin heading a trio of local hopes in Tessa McCann, Joelene Feneon and Abby Mason.

Depleted Pride need win to make football finals „„ By Gordon Findlater CANTERBURY UNITED Pride need a win in their final roundrobin match if they are to defend their national women’s football league crown. If they are to succeed, it will be down to the team’s young core, with captain and recently named New Zealand women’s player of year, Annalie Longo (left), Victoria Esson, Meikayla Moore

and Aimee Phillips all unavailable for the game due to national team duties in Thailand. Coming into their final round match against bottom-of-thetable Central Football in Palmerston North, the Pride are at the top on 10 points with Northern Football and Southern Football. Auckland Football are also in the race for the top three on nine points. A win on Sunday will guaran-

41

tee the Pride at least a spot in the pre-final on December 3. However, if Northern and Southern drop points, the Pride could finish the round-robin in top spot which will automatically qualify them for the final. The second and third place finishers will play-off in the pre-final for the second final spot. The Pride will have the services of their national team players if they qualify for the finals.

Summerfield in three-way fight for championship ahead of Rally NZ „„ By Gordon Findlater MATT SUMMERFIELD will go into this weekend’s New Zealand Rally Championship decider with a “trophy or trailer” attitude. Summerfield, 25, goes into Rally New Zealand in Tauranga third in the championship on 98 points, just 11 behind championship leader Andrew Hawkeswood. The 2015 national champion, Ben Hunt, is on 99 points, giving the final round of the championship an intriguing three-way fight for the title. “We’ll need a couple of things to go our way but our attitude will just be to push as hard as we can,” said Summerfield. Along with overall championship honours, there will also be another illustrious prize up for grabs in Tauranga. The Rally New Zealand trophy is among the most prestigious in New Zealand motorsport. The trophy was last contested in 2012, when it was won by nine-time world rally champion Sebastien Loeb. Top seed for the event will be World Rally Championship star Hayden Paddon, who will team up with former co-driver John Kennard in their Hyundai i20 AP4+ car. Hawkeswood will run second on the road in his Mazda 2 AP4+, while Hunt’s Subaru WRX STi will run third ahead of Summerfield who has a handy road position of fourth. “Obviously Hayden [Paddon] is going to be the guy to beat, but we’re all going to be on the limit behind him,” said Summerfield. The rally consists of 12 special stages run over Saturday and Sunday.

What’s my house really worth? When you’ve lived in a property for a while it can be hard to be rational about its worth. How can you put a price on the spot where you’ve built so many memories with family and friends? Someone will surely recognise the hours you spent sanding back the windows or digging out the agapanthus in the garden and reward you with a high price, won’t they? Unfortunately potential buyers may see things differently, especially in a slow housing market. There are several methods you can use to gauge the worth of your property. Remember that the rateable value or RV (formerly known as the government valuation, or GV) of your property doesn’t really provide any clues. These valuations are done by the local council to work out what share of rates a household should pay. They are only done every three years and don’t take any improvements into account – increasingly, properties that include an RV figure in the advertising will come with a disclaimer that it is not indicative of current market value. These days you can gather a lot of information for free thanks to websites like Trade Me and Homes.co.nz. Trade Me’s Property Insights has information on more than 1.5 million homes, including rateable value data, previous sale prices, when the property was built and what size it is. The site also provides an estimated value range, based on a melting pot of data from sales of comparable properties, listing details and user activity. Homes.co.nz operates similarly. Its estimate service is built on a complex set of valuation models, using around 30 million pieces of data bought from councils nationwide, plus sales values and a wide set of property features. Both sites recognise there are a number of factors at play, so they offer an estimated value range that can be quite broad. While both these sites are useful, they don’t show the full picture and should only be used as the starting point in determining value. They can’t take

the condition of your property into account and they may not recognise any improvements you might have made (though homes.co.nz does allow owners to ‘claim’ their property and edit information about it). Let’s say you own a large property in an area where there have been some big-ticket sales in the last year. Your property might have some serious structural issues and be in generally poor condition, yet the algorithms may claim that it is worth a lot more than any sensible buyer would pay for it because other houses in the neighbourhood have sold for high prices. The impact of this is two-fold. Firstly, the seller could anticipate a big pay-day that may never arrive; and secondly, some buyers may be put off making an offer because they think it’s out of range. There are a couple of ways to combat this. When you start working with a real estate agent to sell your property they must supply you with a current market appraisal or CMA. This is based on similar information to the online versions, but it also comes with the agent’s real-time, real-life knowledge of the area, what similar properties have sold for and the condition and particular characteristics of your own property (such as whether it has been repainted recently or it’s in a state of disrepair). The agent will have had the chance to walk through your property and identify its unique selling propositions, such as good sun, proximity to desirable schools and other features that buyers like. It’s important to note that you may get varying CMA ranges from different real estate agents as they may each take a divergent perspective on your property that you will then need to consider. Your other option is to pay a registered valuer to provide you with an independent valuation. This service comes at a cost (the price will vary, depending on the level of detail), but it will be more accurate. The Property Institute, which represents valuers, says a registered valuation can help sellers be a little more clinical about their property’s worth. Even with all the information you can gather, the true indication of your property’s value is what a willing buyer will pay for it at the given time that it’s on the market. A valuation, a price range or a figure reached by an algorithm is not cash in the bank. For independent advice on buying or selling property, check out www. reaa.govt.nz.

ONE ONLY SHOW!

Shane

David

PLAYTIME Promotions treat Christchurch to two iconic artists in a one off show at the Hornby Workingmen’s Club next Friday night - Shane Hale and David LaPlanche. Recent recipient of the Queen’s Birthday honours Order of Merit, rock n roll legend Shane Hales, has been performing for over five decades. Simply known as Shane, he was a 60's TV/Recording star with many hits to his credit, including 1969 Loxene Golden Disc award for his single ‘Saint Paul’. Elvis, Buddy, Dion, Cliff, Ricky, and Stones are some of the artists he will be covering at next Friday’s show, as well as some of his own hits. Joining him, direct from Australia is Waimate-born pop tribute artist, David LaPlanche. Formerly from Christchurch, David now lives in NSW and is a regular on the club circuits both here and in Australia. He will be presenting his renditions of hits by Cash, Cliff, Darin, Nelson, Presley and more! Shane and David, backed by the Flashback Rockers Showband, are “Reelin’ in the Rockin’ 50's - 60's” at the Hornby Workingmen’s Club next Friday 1st December 2017. Show starts at 8pm. Tickets are $20 on sale now at the club office, Carmen Rd, phone 03 349 9026.
