Heritage repairs may have to wait

„„ By Bridget Rutherford EARTHQUAKE repairs for some of Christchurch’s significant historic buildings have been put on hold pending a review of city council finances. City council staff have put together a list containing heritage buildings yet to be repaired requiring Long Term Plan funding with no determined future use. The repairs have been put

on hold until they have been reviewed. The heritage-listed Municipal Chambers, Canterbury Provincial Council Chambers and Ferrymead’s Penfold Cottage are among those on hold. It came after concerns the repair and restoration of heritage buildings were being presented to city councillors for decision making on an “ad hoc basis.” •Turn to page 5

Thursday November 30 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

CHRISTMAS MIGHT be right on the radar but there’s another big event looming too – the City2Surf. Yep, it’s only a handful of months away (see page 3) so it’s time to start lacing up those running shoes and pound the pavement or local park to get in some sort of shape. The great thing about the City2Surf – and this hasn’t changed over the decades – is that anyone regardless of shape or fitness level can take part. And this is why it has survived for so long, and each year thousands turn up. A face that will appear on the marketing of City2Surf this year is Jesel Royokada, a Fijian pastor. Jesel was ecstatic when he finished the event (I’m not calling it a race) last year, and this time around is encouraging others, including his congregation to run with him for March’s event. And remember it’s a family event – children 10 and under are free to participate. – Barry Clarke

Leap of faith for pastor Getting into the spirit of fun run „„ By Andrew King

JESEL ROYOKADA embodies everything that is the Star Media City2Surf. Last year he was photographed leaping into the air after crossing the line capturing the spirit of the event. Now, the Christchurch Fijian Seventh-Day Adventist Church pastor has asked his congregation of about 80 to get involved in the event as a way to connect with other cultures. “We come from the islands and sometimes we do things in our own island groups but it is good to get involved with the rest of the community,” he said. The 31-year-old encouraged about 25 of his parishioners to get involved in the event last year “It was the first time our church has got involved with something like this,” he said. He said they were told about the event by Healthy Families Christchurch, part of a nationwide Government initiative ​ aimed at helping New Zealanders live healthy, active lives. “I would like to see all 80 of them out there, and their friends and families. We can even have kids in prams at the event,” he said. He said they will start to train soon for the event, which will be held on March 18. The event is split into two sections – 6km and 14km. The Star Media City2Surf with Les Mills 14km event starts in Centennial Park, Spreydon, at 9am. The Sport Canterbury 6km event starts at 10am in Hansen Park, Opawa. Both finish at the Ferrymead

In Brief POLICE PROBE DEATH The investigation into the unexplained death of a man discovered in Edmonds Park on Ferry Rd is ongoing. It has been reported a weapon was involved and he is believed to be a Russian fisherman. Detective Senior Sergeant Jason Stewart said the investigation into the “unexplained death” will continue. A formal identification process is under way. Anyone in the area between 2-3.30am yesterday is urged to contact their nearest police station or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. ‘DROWN HIM’ CASE Police are yet to make an arrest after the brutal assault of a teenager in Rolleston. The 15-year-old victim was viciously attacked by a group in Rolleston after a fireworks display on November 4. They dragged him to a water race and held his head under water. Some in the group chanted “drown him”. Police have remained tight-lipped about the investigation, saying inquiries are “ongoing”.

ENTHUSIASM: Jesel Royokada embodies the spirit that is the Star Media City2Surf.

PUSH FOR CITY LIVING The Christchurch City Development Forum met yesterday to discuss ways to get more residential development in the central city. The behind closed doors meeting was attended by city councillors, developers and real estate agents. Forum chairman Jamie Gough said a lot was out of the city council’s control, but the discussion was about seeing what it could do to help get development moving. The city council and Government want 20,000 people living in the central city by 2024.

Pet killed, man injured during dog attack

„„ By Sophie Cornish DOG CONTROL officers were called to a property two weeks before a pensioner was attacked by bull terriers which then killed his bichon frise. Roger Stare, 73, is now seeking answers after his best mate Charlie was mauled to death in the Prestons subdivision on Friday. Mr Stare suffered multiple wounds and bruising during the unprovoked and surprise attack. “I would like to know why this happened . . . the dogs should have never been there in the first place,” he said. The attack happened on Te Rito St about 11am, while Mr Stare was taking Charlie for his daily walk. Two bull terriers pushed their way through an insecure window in a house and charged at them. A Te Rito St resident, who did not want to be named, told The Star yesterday she called dog control two weeks ago when the bull terriers escaped from the property. Mr Stare now wants to know why the dogs were able to escape again, this time with lethal consequences.

INJURIES: The aftermath of the attack on Mr Stare.

The city council has impounded one of the bull terriers but the other dog was allowed back to its owner after being classed as a “passenger to the attack.” A city council spokeswoman was unable to provide details yesterday of the outcome of the call out two weeks ago. Mr Stare said the dogs’ owner

rents the property they escaped from and he has been issued a 48-hour notice to remove the animals from the subdivision. The Prestons subdivision covenant lists that residents shall not keep any dog which in whole or part appears to be a pit bull terrier, rottweiler, japanese akita, japanese tosa, dogo argentino or fila brasileiro on any properties. The city council spokeswoman said the dog involved in this attack is being held in custody at the animal shelter, until this investigation has been completed.

Burleigh fulfils grandad’s dream

„„ By Andrew King CANCER-ridden Des Burleigh knew he would never see his grandson Phil play international rugby. So from Christchurch via Skype he told Phil, playing in Scotland for Edinburgh: “You make sure you wear the blue jersey son.” A week later Des passed away. That was six months ago. At the weekend, Phil fulfilled his grandfather’s Des Burleigh dream when he ran on as a late replacement for Scotland in their 53-24 demolition of the Wallabies in front of 67,000 at Murrayfield. Des would have been very proud, Phil’s father Wayne Burleigh said yesterday. Originally from New Brighton, Phil qualified to play for Scotland because he has played three years there. Wayne – like his son, a gifted midfielder who played for New Brighton – told The Star Des’ words ran through his head as he watched the match on TV.

PROUD: Wayne and Pauline Burleigh eagerly await their son Phil’s debut off the bench for Scotland against Australia on Sunday morning. (Left) – Phil Burleigh with No 8 Cornell du Preez after the win over Australia.

And even more so when Phil sang the Scottish national anthem before kick-off. Des, who spent a number of years on the Canterbury Rugby junior advisory board, was one of Phil’s biggest fans, Wayne said.

​“I think he knew he was on the way out so he gave him a bit of advice.” “He would follow all his progress [in Scotland] on his iPad and Phil would Skype him all the time,” Wayne said. He said Phil’s other late

grandfather Stan Wilson would have been proud as his mother was Scottish. Phil’s appearance for Scotland caps a great year for New Brighton rugby. He played alongside All Blacks centre Ryan Crotty during his club days at New Brighton and another seasider, Kieron Fonotia, made his debut for Manu Samoa against the All Blacks on June 16 at Eden Park. All three played in the Shirley Boys’ High first XV in 2005. Fonotia has also been on Samoa’s Northern Hemisphere tour.

In Brief SANTA PARADE More than 100,000 people are expected to line Riccarton Rd from 2pm on Sunday for the Christchurch Santa Parade. The annual parade’s future had been uncertain after its funding was cut last year. But in June, city councillors approved a $35,000 grant for this year’s parade, to be topped up by a $65,000 grant from the city council’s major events fund. •Parade guide, p42 COLOMBO GOES ONE-WAY Colombo St will temporarily become one-way, north-bound only, from Armagh St to Kilmore St from next Wednesday. Work to restore Victoria Square and build the 2.5km riverside promenade has limited the space for vehicles. Southbound access will be available along Durham and Manchester Sts. Colombo St is set ot be reopened to two lanes in May. ECO PACKAGING AT EVENTS Thirty upcoming events in Christchurch will use compostable food packaging after the Canterbury waste joint committee approved $29,552 for a trial. The city council will use the packaging at 12 of its upcoming major events, while 21 privatelyrun events will also use it.

LOL Surprise! Dolls and NERF guns are top of the pops when it comes to children’s toys this Christmas. Julia Evans reports CHILDREN HAVE begun sending letters to Santa and shops have become packed with Christmas shoppers – December is here. Tower Junction Toyworld manager Gail Gray said there have already been two clear frontrunners as the most popular toys this year. “There’s always favourites and they usually sell out. This year it’s the LOL Dolls,” Ms Gray said. She said the larger dolls had sold out from all stores around the country. However, she promised she was making an extra effort to get the smaller LOL Doll back in store before Christmas. For boys, she said you can’t go wrong with the latest NERF blaster – there’s something they love about shooting foam darts around the garden on the morning of December 25.

„„ By Bridget Rutherford THE CITY council could spend $40,000 installing bicycle parks across Christchurch each year. City councillors have asked for the money to be put aside annually in the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan budget. City council planning and delivery transport manager Lynette Ellis said it was required to provide adequate cycle parking, similar to on and off-street car parks. Private commercial developers also had to provide adequate cycle parks under the replacement District Plan, she said. “The $40,000 set aside allows funds for cycle stands to be installed in key locations across the city at yet to be identified locations.” She said typically it costs about $600 to buy and install each stand. “Therefore the money allocated can provide approximately 65 stands per year.” It would use a robust hoop style stand and could fit two to three bikes per hoop, she said. The draft Long Term Plan is likely to be approved in February before a month of consultation. The final plan will be adopted in June.

Walk of Stars for city

„„ By Andrew King CHRISTCHURCH IS set to get its own version of the ‘Hollywood Stars’ in a new initiative by the City Mission. The social service agency is offering ‘stars’ that will be placed in the Cashel Mall from December 1. It is a way to generate money and to thank sponsors. The project is called “The Walk of Stars.” City Missioner Matthew Mark said it allowed them to shout loud and proud the wonderful people that keep their organisation going. “The opportunity to highlight who supports us on a regular basis is quite a privilege,” he said. It is the first time the City Mission has used the idea. “It has been well received and has been a lot of fun,” he said. So far 55 stars have been sold including nine out of the 10 $5000 gold stars available, he said. Mr Mark said while it is great to say thanks those who have donated, the need grows every day. “We still need to get the message out there that the need is increasing, we still want to share that, but we also want to say thank you,” he said. •The stars cost between $100$5000 and can be purchased by STARS IN THE MAKING: City Missioner Matthew Mark has visiting: www.citymission.org.nz/ started a project called ‘The Walk of Stars’ in City Mall.

Friends find MKR final too hot to handle FOODIES Heather Andersen and Mitch MacDonald were unable to cook their way to victory in Monday’s My Kitchen Rules New Zealand grand-final. The Christchurch friends were beaten by five points by Wanaka’s Chris and Bex Wright, who walked away with the $100,000 prize with a score of 52 out of 60. The friends were dubbed the villains of season three, but said they were not as “awful” as viewers thought. “We feel so proud of making it through to the grand-final even though we didn’t come away with the win. Congratulations to Chris and Bex, it’s been great cooking against them and they certainly know their way around a kitchen,” Mr MacDonald said. The duo started on a high, but the title soon slipped from their grasp after they delivered a beef fillet main over-powered by onions. But Ms Andersen made her mark in the dessert round, with an L&P cheesecake dubbed the lightest the judges had ever eaten on the show – but it was not enough.

The final, held at Auckland’s Gusto at the Grand, was judged by Pete Evans and Manu Feildel, with chefs Sean Connolly, Nadia Lim, Ray McVinnie and Tom Hishon on the tasting panel. The teams had to plate up four courses – an entree, fish dish, meat dish and a dessert. The season reached an average of 632,000 viewers each week.

News 700km a month put on council vehicles

„„ By Bridget Rutherford CITY COUNCIL vehicles clock up more than 700km on average each month. There are 63 vehicles in the city council’s generic pool based at Hereford St, which can be driven by staff at any time on work business. Twenty-four vehicles are based at other sites for general staff use, while there are 66 dedicated vehicles for the exclusive use of a single staff member. There are also 44 specialist vehicles allocated to a particular unit. Data provided to the The Star showed, since January, the dedicated vehicles have travelled about 923km on average each month. The Hereford St pool vehicles went about 900km, while those in other locations went about 536km each month. Specialist vehicles travelled an average of 565km. The city council spent $365,112 on fuel for its vehicles this financial year and $382,572 last year. It has teamed up with 12 organisations, including Environment Canterbury, for an electric vehicle shared fleet scheme, which the public can also use for $11.90 an hour.

Partners in rebuild project – and rebuilding lives Two well-established Christchurch companies are working together on one of the city’s most eagerly anticipated rebuild projects, QEII. Apollo Projects is the lead building contractor, while Aotea Electric is carrying out design build work on the electrical, automation, electrical for mechanical, electrical for pool water services and data communication work, as well as the installation of the MATV, PA, and electric vehicle charging systems. Following completion of the tender process in 2016, construction began at the beginning of this year and completion is expected by mid-2018. Project manager for Aotea Electric, Adam Smithies, says the relationship between the two companies has been “really good, it’s great to be part of such a nostalgic rebuild project. Everyone is focused on getting the job done together,” he says. Apollo Project’s Iain Ansell describes Aotea Electric as a “professional company with an impressive track record”. “With large projects like this, there’s always the potential for issues and conflicts, but with Aotea it’s

been smooth sailing. It’s good when companies work together and share the vision.” This isn’t the only project the two companies are partnering on, however. Both have recently become sponsors of the Believe Foundation. The foundation was established to provide lifechanging opportunities and challenges for young people whose lives have taken an unconventional path. Approaching ‘decision points’ in their lives, most of them lack role models to guide them in making critical decisions about their future. The aim of the foundation is to fund the youth to partake in challenging events, and also to provide a network of ‘mentors’ who will train and encourage them in the lead-up to the challenges, and help prepare them for employment at the completion of the challenge. For many of the youngsters, it is likely that having people believe in them will be a rare or new experience. Last year, the Believe Foundation supported the Te Rangatahi Tumanako Trust (The Youth Hope Trust) and the St John of God Hauora Trust, who managed a team of five young people to train for and compete in

the Mototapu mountain bike race. The race was a life-changing experience for the young people, and all of them have continued to embrace the positive life experiences of the Road to Motatapu, and translate these to the challenges of everyday life. Seeking sponsorship for another group of young people to take part in this year’s race, the Believe Foundation’s Tim Howe approached Robbie Venrooy of Aotea Electric. “We thought it was an amazing idea and we wanted to get involved,” Robbie says. “I spoke to my fellow directors and they said yes, they were keen for the company to be sponsors.” Apollo Projects director Craig Waghorn says they were also very happy to sponsor the Believe Foundation for the second year. “It’s part of our company culture to support good causes like this, and we saw this as an outstanding cause. We are also pleased to have the mutual connection and tie-in with Aotea on this.”

Helping settle ‘complex’ quake insurance claims AS A new minister, one of the biggest priorities for me has been getting faster resolution for people still dealing with EQC and insurance issues, nearly seven years after the earthquakes. For many of the people still in this position here in Christchurch, part of the problem is that they have complex or difficult claims. For those stuck in this situation, it feels like they are trapped in limbo. My priority is making sure these people can move on with their lives. Part of that is making sure the right support is available to help them navigate what can be very overwhelming and complex issues. This is where the Residential Advisory Service has been an absolute godsend for people over the last few years. The service helps people navigate their claims and gives people support and a bit of case management to get people through. Since the earthquake, more than 4500 people have had their claims resolved by the RAS. Yet under the previous Government, this service had been due to close in December due to a lack of funding.

That’s not something our new Government wants to see. We know how important this service is, and we know that we can’t walk away from people while they are still struggling. When I was in Kaikoura recently for the one-year anniversary, I met with people who were using the service. I heard how much of an important lifeline it was. One woman told me she had been at the absolute end of her rope until she started working with RAS. She talked about how staff there went above and beyond to help her. That’s the approach our Government wants to see continue. That’s why we’ve announced we will be extending the RAS service until at least the middle of next year. With new funding, the service will be able to continue to help the people who need it and ensure people are getting access to justice and a way to get their claims sorted and get on with their lives. •Megan Woods is the Minister of Greater Christchurch Regeneration

DUMPED: People continue to dump their rubbish in public places like here in South Brighton Domain. ​

Higher fines for people caught dumping rubbish in public places has failed to deter them from doing it Leanne Rita Scaturro – In Perth, every six months they do a road side collection. From whiteware to deck chairs, bikes, heaters, old fences, anything. I often pulled over and grabbed something I needed. Great way of recycling and getting rid of stuff that otherwise sits around. A good clear out. And a good service. Mykel Holmes – Or make

landfills and (refuse) centres realistic prices and these people with no money might actually dump it legally – surely it’s cheaper than paying wages for people to go pick it all up then dump it at the same place? Commonsense no? Jacinta Roosing – Check out the roads in Riccarton. A family moved out of a house and left their crap on the side of the road. Heather Wilkins – Part of the problem is a lack of rubbish bins. Council thought in their wisdom that if they took some away, it would encourage people to use a rubbish bin.

‘Housing crisis’ solutions THE NEW Government is full steam ahead on meeting its first 100-day plan. That includes significant announcements from the minister of housing, who has sought a stocktake on the housing crisis. This will include firm figures on homelessness, the state of the rental market and the decline of home ownership. We will certainly co-operate with the compilation of this report, as will the Otautahi Community Housing Trust, which now manages the city’s social housing tenancies. We have a considerable amount of information on these issues due to a number of initiatives we are participating in with other agencies, including Housing First, a project which looks to get people into a secure home, before beginning to tackle the other issues that led to homelessness in the first place. The Government announcement has two areas of focus which are significant to Christchurch. The first is cancelling the state housing sell-off, and the other is setting up KiwiBuild – and I think the

two are related. The cancelling of the state house sell-off opens up the possibility of dialogue on progressing the exemplar rebuild projects in Bryndwr and Shirley that were agreed as part of the land use recovery plan. These were intended to create well-designed urban communities that increased the number of affordable and market-priced homes, without diminishing the number of social housing units. This would be a

win-win for KiwiBuild and the state housing tenants, who will be relieved that the sale is off the table. I was also pleased that Megan Woods has announced the Residential Advisory Service, which provides help for earthquake claimants to navigate insurance issues, will have its funding extended until at least July 2018. It does seem more than unfair that some people are still struggling with EQC/insurance claims seven years after the first earthquake struck, but the truth is there are many still in that boat. So the support needs to be there and I’m glad the government has recognised that need. It’s only 25 sleeps until Christmas and there is plenty going on to bring people into the city. Local writers Tony Simpson and Andrew Gunn have created a great movie in Kiwi Christmas. I need to disclose that Andrew is my brother-in-law, but I would not be writing this if I didn’t think this was a movie you would enjoy.

SHOWS: The World Buskers Festival will feature performances from the Topp Twins, who will bring their classic brand of Kiwi humour to the stage, and Urzila Carlson with her show Unacceptable; PHOTOS: WORLD BUSKERS FESTIVAL

Buskers back for 25th „„ By Bridget Rutherford COMEDIANS, daredevils, dancers, singers and acrobats will hit the streets in January to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the World Buskers Festival. Fifty-five performers representing 14 countries will descend on the city for the annual 10-day festival from January 18-28. Festival producer Tim Bain said its programme was about creating a line-up which reflected the past, while at the same time looked forward to the future. “It’s daring, bold, cheeky, hilarious and world class,” he said. To celebrate 25 years, there will be five headline shows. After making it through to the America’s Got Talent final last year, The Boy with Tape on His Face (right) is coming home to premier his new ideas. Urzila Carlson will perform her new show Unacceptable and the Topp Twins will entertain the crowds with their classic Kiwi humour. A Night at the Musicals, featuring Le Gateau Chocolat, will bring musical entertainment, as will Crossdresser for Christ, featuring Ginger Minj from RuPaul’s Drag Race. New features will include a Buskers Bar and Night Food Market at the Arts Centre every night, a Cabaret Club at the Great Hall, and the Laugh Lounge at Sixty6 on Peterborough.

Buskers will also perform at the Friday Night Food Market in Cathedral Square and in City Mall at lunchtimes outside The Crossing. Festival director Melissa Haberfield encouraged people to embrace the festival and celebrate its 25th birthday. “For 10 days and 11 nights, our city becomes a playground filled with laughter, colour and fun, as street artists and night show performers entertain hundreds of thousands of locals and visitors in a festival like no other.” There will be 13 performance sites, inside and outdoors, including the Arts Centre, Christ’s College, Christchurch Art Gallery, New Brighton and Lyttelton among others. More than 200 free day performances will take place around the city. The festival will conclude with the Buskers Best Bits show at the Isaac Theatre Royal on January 28. The 24th World Buskers Festival, held in January, drew a quarter of a million people.

RETURN: Fresh from his world tour, The Boy With Tape on His Face will return to Christchurch for the festival in January.

New Full-time Tech Jobs Created in NZ in the last year *2017 TIN Report

Tech is New Zealand’s third-largest export sector and is growing fast with over 9000 new jobs expected to be created over the next two years*. To fuel this growth, NZ needs more people with a grounding in tech to meet the rapid expansion within this exciting and varied area, which crosses into many industries. SIGNAL ICT Grad School develops tech professionals to meet that growth via SHIFT, enabling more people to enter this dynamic and diverse sector. *NZ Tech Digital Skills Survey 2017

The SHIFT Programme SHIFT is an innovative industry-driven programme for those who are seeking a new career path who may not have a tech background. Open to degree-holders in any discipline, learners in the current cohorts have various backgrounds, from philosophy, sociology and marketing to graphic design, engineering and science. Available in both Christchurch and Dunedin, this one year programme offers relevant and current content to ensure you are well equipped to work within the tech area, where the skills you have learnt in previous work and study are highly valued.

Partnering With Industry SHIFT uses immersive studio-based learning and real-world industry experience to produce graduates with a solid base of core computing skills, as well as communication and employability skills required in today’s collaborative workplaces. The current Christchurch cohort, which started in July, have just finished two collaborative studio projects; making an app to track native planting in New Zealand and coding a small computer to create a personal bus schedule monitor. These projects are tailored to complement their preferred specialist tech area and enhance their employability.

Opportunities With tech roles existing in nearly every area from aviation to zoology, career possibilities are extensive. Through the SHIFT programme, learners can focus on software design and development, or allied roles, such as business analyst, web designer, project manager, user experience designer, technical writer, sales and client support . . . and the list goes on.

SIGNAL’s SHIFT Programme transitions graduates from any discipline into tech. Many new and mature graduates are considering tech as a viable and lucrative career option and this is increasing as the range of roles within tech becomes more widely known.

Diversity is welcomed; in the current Christchurch cohort, 80 percent are women, and two learners in the SHIFT programme have young families. SHIFT is also well suited to new graduates who may be looking for that X factor to boost their employability. The tech sector can potentially offer flexible hours and work locations – making this an exciting and viable option for those with families.

Situated at 181 High Street, SIGNAL Christchurch is in the heart of the growing Innovation Precinct.

The next SHIFT intake commences in February 2018 and scholarships are available. Call SIGNAL today on 0800 990024 and start your shift into NZ’s fastest-growing sector.

ISAAC’S STORY:

FELICIA’S STORY:

With a Masters in Geology and 10 years experience working in the mining industry, Isaac re-assessed his career goals, wanting a career that was more flexible and portable.

Felicia has a computer engineering degree from the Philippines where she worked as an Air Traffic Controller for 12 years before coming to New Zealand.

‘I saw the SHIFT programme as an exciting opportunity to add specific tech skills to my knowledge base, so I can translate those skills into a new career.’ For his industry project, Isaac is working with Stantec NZ to represent aerial drone footage.

‘SHIFT will enable and empower me to reignite my programming skills to eventually help me become work-ready. I am invested to take as much knowledge and practical skills from this course and apply them in more meaningful ways.’

‘The school-friendly course hours have allowed me to carry on with my before and after school duties, and this has really helped my family and my career training.’

She has really enjoyed the studio projects so far and is looking forward to working with industry early next year.

Tech jobs exist in every industry, from aviation to zoology. Combine ANY DEGREE with the innovative SHIFT Programme and kickstart your new career today. Level 1 181 High St, Christchurch P: 0800 990 024 E: info@signal.ac.nz signal.ac.nz/shift SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE for February 2018. APPLY NOW!

Ben Rutherford

Constable’s road to social media celebrity Constable Ben Rutherford, 27, has become a well-known figure on the Canterbury Police Facebook page. He spoke to Bridget Rutherford about breaking down the barrier between police and the public through humour You first appeared on the police Facebook page when you made a young boy’s day by delivering him a photo. Can you tell me the story behind that? I was on an operation based out of Hanmer. I just took a photo of the sun rising near Culverden and sent it to the media team in Wellington and asked if we could post it on Facebook encouraging people to drive safely on State Highway 7. Then I got a phone call from the media team saying they had heard from someone who said her young son really liked the photo and wanted a copy. I got in touch with her and she said her son wanted to be a police officer, so I printed the photo and got it framed and dropped it off the next week. He was blown away, I showed him all the switches and dials in the police car and he wanted to know what I did and how long I’ve been in the police. I can remember being that age and knowing I wanted to be a policeman but I didn’t know anyone who was a cop, and finding somebody who was and wanting

to ask all these questions. What’s your job? I’m on a specialist traffic group and we do a lot of road safety, attending crashes, speed enforcement all that sort of stuff. But we go to frontline jobs as well. We’re district-wide and we get taskings. So if we got complaints about people going too fast outside schools, we will go and sit the police car outside the school at 8.15am, and it’s amazing the affect that has on people. How long have you been in the police and what made you want to join? Four-and-a-half years. I couldn’t do a desk job, I’m just far too hyperactive. I like being outside and meeting people. I didn’t want to do a desk job that required a degree, although I did go to university before I joined the police. I just wanted to be out there doing it, plus I really like having a positive influence on people. People who are continuously offending, there’s got to be a reason why they’re doing that. So I like talking to them and finding out why and trying to help them.

What did you study at uni? I went to Lincoln and did sport and recreation management. I’m originally from Tauranga, but I got a hockey scholarship to Lincoln. I tried to join the police straight out of school but I’d just had a knee operation and they said you’re young and you need time for your leg to get back to normal strength. So they said go get some life experience and come back. Did you come straight to Christchurch when you graduated? No, I went to Counties Manukau in South Auckland on general duties for two years. It was good, I was thrown in the

deep end. The training is really good, how you get trained at college is actually what you deal with on the street. My wife Sarah and I were doing long distance then we got engaged and we had to make the decision where we were going to live our lives. She’s from Christchurch and I’d studied here so I transferred back and went to Ashburton for about eight months, then came up here. Do you play a lot of hockey in your spare time? Yes, it just consumes the winter. I try and keep fit and our garden at home is pretty high maintenance so I spend a lot of time in the garden. Who do you play for? Southern United. Have you played rep hockey? •Turn to page 24 aDVERTORIaL

Glass creations now being made in bright new premises Whichever way you can imagine glass being used creatively in your home, AJ Creative Glass can make it happen. From splash-backs in your kitchen to kitchen bench tops, showers, bath surrounds, mirrors and fire hearths or walls – in plain colours to harmonise with your décor, or with any design you would like – the creative team at AJ Creative Glass, have the skills and experience to produce stunning and unique results. Now in its eighth year, the family-run AJ Creative Glass, now also known as AS Design, is owned and operated by Andrew and Alona Skelton. Their company is made up of family, all experienced in their own areas – painter Jay, installer Nate, sandblaster Josh, and Trina front line in the office/ showroom, and all trained in other areas as well. For the team, it is more fun than work, and all say they love seeing the end results, along with the clients’ reactions. Six weeks ago, the business

shifted from Fitzgerald Avenue to 413 Tuam Street, (on the corner of Saxon St) where many of their glass works are displayed in a ‘real life’ setting in the new showroom that has been set up like a home. You can browse round the showroom and get ideas, and at the same time, watch the glass and work being crafted in the workshop. “The possibilities for incorporating glass into the home are endless,” Alona says. “Clients can have imagery such as photos put on to the glass. This is printed on, so it’s permanent. Or they can come up with any design they desire, and we will produce it for them. For painted glass we use Resene paints, which are mixed by Resene in the client’s choice of colour. AJ Creative Glass and Resene both give a 10-year warranty on their products.

“Clients have control of their design from start to finish,” Alona says, “and we encourage that as it is their home they should love what they live with.” The glass items can be shipped anywhere across New Zealand, with the company also having facilities in Auckland for measure and installation. “We are now looking at more avenues for using glass in the home. For example, we are upcycling furniture by adding painted and sandblasted glass to items and bringing them back to life.” To see many of the ways glass can be used creatively, call into their new showroom at 413 Tuam St, with plenty of off-street parking, phone 338 3733. Check out their website, www.ajcreativeglass.co.nz or ‘like’ them on Facebook. Every now and then you can also catch the AJ Creative team at the Christchurch Home Show where they display samples of their glass creations.

Breaking down barriers between public and police •From page 23 I played age group representative hockey for Tauranga and some really junior New Zealand hockey age group stuff. This year I played in the Canterbury senior men’s team. I used to do a bit of coaching but it’s quite hard fitting it all in with playing and shift work. The police are very understanding, and they promote having a good healthy work life balance. If you’re playing reasonably high level sport, they will accommodate it. You and Constable Sam Crozier were snapped strutting your stuff in the Cup Day fashion parade. How did you get roped into that? It was a stitch up (laughs). Inspector Waretini – he didn’t so much as ask, it was more that he told us. Sam and I got this email saying we had to report to this tent at this time. And I was like ‘I know what this is’. We got a lot of stick from our workmates for it, but it was good fun, I’ve got no shame. I think Sam enjoyed it more than I did, he got more into it. About 10 people recognised me on the day from the video we did just prior to Cup and Show Week where I did the thing with the hands. It’s from a movie called Talladega Nights with Will

Ferrell where he’s trying to give an interview and he keeps trying to put his hands on the microphone and the reporter keeps saying ‘can you put your hands down’, and he says ‘I don’t know where to put my hands’. The Canterbury Police Facebook page is very engaging. Why do you think it’s so important to get people seeing that side of police? It’s really good at breaking down barriers – we are people too. But behind every post, there is a message. It’s breaking down police being seen as strictly law enforcement or the fun police. We like to show we can have a bit of fun as well. Yes, there’s a time to be serious, but we like to have a good time – and it works. The fashion Cup Day video had 386,000 views and it was all around the world. My family in the United Kingdom were sharing it. Is there any case or moment that has stuck with you from the job? Probably my first fatal car crash, which was in Auckland. I really struggled. The guy who died was the same age as me, he was on his way to work and wasn’t supposed to work that day but his colleague had applied for

leave and had been denied, so this guy offered to work the shift. I saw me in him – that’s something I would do. He just had his birthday and he got hit by a drink driver and killed. I was the first car there, and he was still alive. I crawled into the car to try and keep him alive but because of the way the car was bent, we couldn’t move him. So he died from asphyxia. That took a lot to get over, probably because it was my first one. The most recent

was in Ashburton where a man was stabbed to death. I was the first car there and he had two stab wounds. I basically put my fingers in his chest and did CPR until the ambulance arrived. We thought we had done really well to keep him alive, but he died in the hallway. We’ve got a (court) trial for that next year. On a lighter note, do any shenanigans happen here in the office? It’s a very respectful environ-

ment because we’ve got such diversity. There is the occasional time if you leave your notebook on the printer, it might be found stuck on the roof. Everybody’s pretty quick to point out to you if you end up on the tv news or in the paper, you owe them a chocolate cake. You might owe your colleagues a cake after this. So your family is from the UK aren’t they? Yes, my parents moved here in 1988. My dad’s parents were missionaries in Kenya, so Dad grew up there, and after his parents had finished their stint there, they moved back to the UK. That’s where he met my mum. I was lucky enough to go to Kenya on a mission trip with school for six weeks to help there. To see where my dad grew up and experience a different culture was awesome. My wife and I went over to the UK and Europe last year to experience a bit of an OE. How did you two meet? Sarah and I met through hockey down here, she’s a keen hockey player, she’s better than I am. She plays for the Canterbury Cats. Her parents here in Christchurch have taken me in like an adopted son.

The popular Pioneer and Jellie Park Recreation and Sport Centres are set for an upgrade and repairs project starting this month. The revamp gets underway at Pioneer Monday, December 4 and continues at Jellie Park on Monday, December 11. Phase one will be carried out in stages

over the next 18 months. Both Pioneer and Jellie Park suffered minor damage in the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes. The Christchurch City Council carried out engineering assessments at the time that showed both facilities were safe and could remain open to support the community in the

Council manager of Western Area Recreation Nigel Cox said while there would be some disruption for people in the short term the work would be well managed and was definitely necessary. “We’re confident the improvements we’re going to be carrying out will be really noticeable and beneficial for the thousands of people who regularly use these very popular centres.” Both buildings will be strengthened to the latest New Zealand Building Code standards. Pools will be repaired and the indoor hydroslide will be replaced at Jellie Park. Pioneer’s wave chamber will also be repaired and there will be improved air-

conditioning in the pool areas at both centres as well as refurbished changing rooms and improvements to the fitness areas. Repairs and improvements will include fixing cracks, painting and repairs to flooring, walls and ceilings as well as upgrading fire systems and replacing wet area flooring with a non-slip hardwearing material. The work at Pioneer will start in the pool area and at Jellie Park the first project will be the spa, sauna and steam room. Phase one of the work is expected to be complete by December 2019. Work on Jellie Park’s sport pool and re-roofing work on both facilities is planned when new pool facilities will be available at QEII Recreation and Sport Centre, the planned Hornby Library, Customer Services and Leisure Centre and the Metro Sports Facility. Pioneer and Jellie Park will remain open overall while repairs are carried out but some areas will be closed in stages. Any facility that is closed at Jellie or Pioneer will be open at another centre, and recreation and sport members are able to use other centres at no extra cost.

Have you thought about what care you want to receive when you reach the end of your life? During the course of our lives we expend an enormous amount of energy planning where we want to live, and what we want to achieve during our lifetimes, but we don’t give much time or thought to what we would like to happen at the end of our lives. If you have a major health event that robs you of the ability to make your wishes known to your family, or to the health professionals responsible for your care, taking some time now to discuss what you want at the end of your life will provide vital guidance if your loved ones have to make those decisions for you. An Advance Care Plan or Advance Directive (“Advance Care Plan”) is a way to help you communicate to your loved ones your wishes about your future health care. It will help your loved ones and your health care providers to understand what is important to you and what treatment you do or do not want in the event that you are unable to communicate with those around you. Under the Code of Health and Disability Services Consumers’ Rights you have the right to use an Advance Care Plan to make your health care wishes known. Examples might be the desire not to receive blood transfusions, be resuscitated or kept alive with the use of life support systems. The Code gives a person, who has capacity to make decisions for themselves, the right to make an Advance Care Plan. However, you should be aware that at present an Advance Care Plan has no specific statutory status in New Zealand, and is

EXERCISE the mind

therefore not enforceable at law and may not be followed. When deciding on whether to follow your Advance Care Plan, your health care professional will try to ensure that: • you had capacity at the time the Advance Care Plan was made; • you made your Advance Care Plan of your own free will; • you were informed and understood the decisions you were making; and your Advance Care Plan applies to the current circumstances, whatever they may be. The trickiest part of an Advance Care Plan may be discussing your wishes with your loved ones. Many of us don’t like to give much thought to the decisions we may be called on to make should our loved ones be ill and unable to communicate their wishes. Talking about your Advance Care Plan with your loved ones is an important conversation and should be an integral part of your estate planning. Sharing your wishes will give you all peace of mind in knowing that should the worst come to pass you will have equipped your loved ones with the information they need to make the right decisions for you. At Harmans we have experience dealing with estate planning and can help you to formalise your wishes. Give our Senior’s team a call on 03 352 2293 to arrange an appointment to discuss your situation.

Decision making

By Ali Scott A mother and her young son were driving through an old part of town when a big earthquake struck. Mum managed to pull over to the side of the road and park safely as the shaking subsided.

Brave Boys eat Broccoli

– or how we know what’s most important

They sat quietly. And then the young boy started to shake and his mother could see he was struggling with emotions and words at the same time. Between catching his breath and holding it, he said, “I want to be brave but I can’t be brave because I want to cry. And I want to cry but I can’t because I want to be brave.”

we are young we value excitement and challenge over peace and harmony. And when we are older

some of what is important to us changes. You Ali Scott know you have reached ‘maturity’ when a cup of tea and a lie down will fulfil your heart’s desire.

So, as we go through life’s transitions And his mother said, “It doesn’t matter and are faced with those big decisions, which one you do first,” and then when what do we do? the young boy thought it didn’t matter, he did what came easily and he cried. What was so lovely about the mother saying it didn’t matter, was that the That night for dinner, (and this was child forgot about what was the ‘right’ a boy who didn’t eat his vegetables), he asked if he could have broccoli, “because or ‘wrong’ thing to choose and relaxed enough to do what came easily. Because that’s what brave boys eat”. it actually did matter – the child needed Sometimes there are situations in life to cry and then be brave, so brave that where we need to choose, situations eating broccoli was a cinch. where it seems we can’t do both. Stay or So, here are three techniques for go? Travel or settle? Head or heart? Cry or be brave? And when we think about sorting that values conflict and making space between the rock and the hard what is more important to us, we can place. end up going nowhere, like the Pushmi Pullyu, the fictitious llama-like character 1. Just pretend, for a moment, that it with a head at each end pulls itself in doesn’t matter. Pretend that the clouds in opposite directions and ends up going the sky are more important, or the dog nowhere. on the street or the bird on the fence is Another name for this problem is a values conflict. Like being stuck between a rock and a hard place, going round in circles or banging our head against a brick wall, when all we are trying to do is work out what we value and what is most important to us. At life’s transition points, such as the nest emptying, a new job, health challenges or relationships changing, we are often in situations where we need to work out what is most important for us, what we are valuing right now, because as we grow we change. When

more important. And in that moment when you forget and relax, you will remember something you know is really important. 2. Send those thoughts outside to play because the idea that they are opposites and at odds is an illusion. They are, in fact, connected. You can’t be brave unless you know when to be afraid. And crying takes a certain kind of bravery. Let them play away. And it may be that an even brighter and better idea arrives back on your doorstep. 3. If after pretending, and cloud

gazing, and even after the playing away it still feels like the Pushmi Pullyu, you can toss a coin for it. Not because it doesn’t matter and anything is better than the tension and inertia. But because, in that brief moment when the coin is in the air, you suddenly know what you are hoping for.

About NLP Traditionally, psychology has focused on problems. NLP, or Neuro Linguistic Psychology (Programming) has taken a different approach and focused on studying how people organise or ‘programme’ their thinking when producing solutions. The focus is always on success or results – success in its broadest

sense, i.e. recovering spontaneously from trauma or being optimistic following divorce – and has produced a wealth of detailed information about human thought and behaviour plus a practical, learnable set of skills, such as how we make decisions and what is the thinking process behind different types of motivation. It can be used for improving emotional and mental wellbeing as well as upskilling your thinking processes.

Trading Many readers will have enjoyed dining at the Nor’Wester Café in Amberley, probably more than once. Forward 50 talks to former owner Trish Coleman about her experiences there and about changing direction with her new business.

Why did you get into that business and how long did you own it for? Nor’Wester was the most challenging and defining thing I have done to date. During our 17 years of ownership, it tested every ounce of me mentally, emotionally and physically. Timing is everything. My brother was home from Perth after working in the mines, I was ready for a change after working in local government for 17 years, and my husband Tim needed less physically demanding work from his building business, having been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

challenges

Hospitality is not for the faint-hearted. We did a lot of behindthe-scenes stuff that people might never imagine a restaurant would do. The work around defining our culture, our training and development and food safety programmes, food and wine training, and recycling initiatives, they were all pretty special.

Why did you decide to sell that business and start a new, different type of enterprise?

The last four years of the restaurant were very tough, especially as competition continued to grow. Restaurant We saw a gap in the market, the ideal building came up margins generally are very small, but with fewer patrons, for sale, we attracted the talented Andrew Brown as head ours went into the red. The Christchurch earthquakes chef and the rest is history. Experiences in the restaurant kept us afloat for a period. The influx of people from were far reaching and require a book not a Q&A to cover! Christchurch and the destruction of many restaurants Generally though, creating a restaurant from scratch in the city left provincial restaurants with opportunity. with no industry experience was a big undertaking and It gave us a boost for a time, but slowly the reality of not a steep learning curve. Stepping up to food and wine enough ‘bums on seats’ to sustain our level of product challenges and competitions tested and honed our skills and service came back to haunt us, and it took its toll. I and systems, and we were rewarded often. Buying out our had neither the energy or the will to make the changes business partners in 2005 and managing the exit in 2014 necessary for us to continue. I would have had to cut were all valuable experiences. the guts out of the place to make it viable, and I had no appetite to do this. What made it so successful? While we were hands-on owners, the staff were our backbone. Over the years we worked with many outstanding individuals. Some came fully qualified, others we grew into professionals as their potential was realised. We involved our staff in a lot of our decision making, and were always keen to attract people who knew more than us.

What have been the challenges in starting something new?

Getting back in the saddle so soon was the hardest. Tim and I would have liked a year to recuperate, but the opportunity of grabbing the site we are in now was too good to let go. We sold the restaurant in June 2014 and began work on Mumma T Trading Lounge in the Customer feedback was king at Nor’Wester. It made us November and opened March 2015. We have settled our the great restaurant we were. We were only as good as our shop footprint, and have stock levels to where I want them. With the bricks and mortar phase settled, we are last service, and I was always grateful for the customers looking forward to stepping up our marketing strategy – who took the time to notify us of their good and not so there is much to do in 2018. good experiences.

What do you find fulfilling about owning and running a business?

It may sound strange, but I love the challenge around self-discipline. I work quickly to find remedies to problems I face. Whether that be tracking down a person with the skill-set I don’t have, or reading a book for knowledge. Being self-employed means you have to be a self-starter, a self-manager, a self-discipliner. It’s not for everyone. In saying that, though, I am a very ‘unstructured’ person. Routine doesn’t sit easily with me, so I love the fact that I can design a work programme that fits my body clock and rhythm. Half the time I couldn’t even tell you what day of the week it is, and that suits me fine. Tim and I were unable to have a family (that’s another long story), and I guess without dependents we are able to go with the flow pretty easily. Our health and wellbeing is a big one for both of us. I no longer smoke or drink coffee and I eat three meals a day. I enjoy wine, sometimes too much, other than that I lead a pretty, healthy uncomplicated lifestyle. Tim is amazing in managing his MS. It is great that he can still be involved in this business at his pace, something he would struggle to do if working for someone else.

What advice would you give anyone 50-plus who is thinking of changing direction? The answer always lies within you. If the opportunity before you really excites you then that is a great start. I then ask, if I don’t do this, how will I feel when I look back knowing I had this opportunity but didn’t take it. In addition, I ask, am I prepared to run the risk of this failing? Can I bear that risk? If the answer is yes to all that, then go for it.

Pensioners amazed by new hearing aids

Parkinson’s is a condition that affects more than 13,000 New Zealand. One per cent of Kiwi adults over the age of 60 have the disease, but it can affect anyone of any age. However, while there are no known cures, and drugs treat only some of the issues, exercise and movement have been shown to significantly improve the lives of those who have Parkinson’s, ExerciseNZ chief executive Richard Beddie says. “What’s important is that exercise needs intensity and also a cognitive function – engaging the mind and the body – to have the best effects. So, things such as dancing, or workouts with certain types of agility components, can be the most effective,” Mr Beddie says. “People with Parkinson’s should get good advice, work with their doctor or physio, and then an exercise professional that has specialist training. Starting exercise early after diagnosis is key for the best outcomes. “Parkinson’s is a progressive, neurological disease, with no cure. Symptoms and progression can be managed, as exercise helps,” he says.

Regular exercise can improve lives for people with Parkinson’s

“Even 20 minutes a day of gentle exercise can help people. Exercise increases the body’s response to dopamine cells in the brain, thus slowing the progression of the disease in some people, and helping to manage the symptoms in others.” Symptoms of Parkinson’s include lack of balance, tremors, stiffness or rigidity, and slowness of movement known as bradykinesia. “Balance exercises assist with reducing falls,” Mr Beddie says. “People with Parkinson’s are at greater risk of falls. Exercise activities such as walking or dancing are steps in the right direction for people living with Parkinson’s disease.” Note: There is no cure but there is a range of treatments for Parkinson’s diesease. Scientists and researchers agree patients benefit from physical therapy. While Parkinson’s itself is not considered fatal, people can die from complications of the disease.

Hearing aids have historically been something most people have avoided for as long as possible. On average, a person experiencing hearing difficulties will delay seeking help in this regard for over seven years. Imagine enduring any other medical complaint for so long!

myself off into another room.”

In New Zealand, one in six people have some degree of hearing difficulty. Over the age of 60, more than half the population are living with a significant hearing reduction. As the main first sign of this is a drop in speech clarity, it can easily be blamed on other people not speaking properly, the TV sound being unclear, or just too much social noise causing the problem.

“It’s just like I’ve got my ears back again. Nobody can see I’ve got the hearing aids in and they feel so comfortable, I forget they are there!” says Nick, “I can hear so clearly now, the kids can’t get away with anything! The whole family are so pleased!”

Nick had a FREE hearing check at Hear Again, which confirmed he had a reduction in his hearing causing social noise to be a problem for him. After being provided with a pair of the new hearing aids he cannot believe the difference.

Neil Hardisty, NZAS Audiometrist, sees results like these every day at Hear Again. Neil has been expertly overcoming hearing difficulties for residents of Christchurch since moving here from the UK in 2009. He is frequently praised for his limitless patience, wonderful caring nature and ability to solve problems other clinicians have deemed impossible. Neil is never satisfied until you are.

Motoring

Price – Ford Escape Titanium, $53,490 Dimensions – Length, 4524mm; width, 1838mm; height, 1736mm Configuration – Four-cylinder, four-wheel-drive, 1999cc, 178kW, 345Nm, six-speed automatic. Performance – 0-100km/h, 8sec Fuel usage – 8.6l/100km

New release

and 345Nm. That’s mostly due to the turbocharging system fitted to the twin-camshaft, 16-valve unit; it offers significant boost at a low operating area. Peak power arrives at just 5500rpm, while maximum torque is available all the way from 2000rpm to 4500rpm. The significance of those figures is the punchy way the engine works – it is feisty and lively, yet it delivers with little audible sound. If you also factor in the way power is transferred through a silky-smooth, six-speed automatic gearbox, the driveline is structured for quick momentum with a responsive nature. The Escape in this form will accelerate from a standstill in 8sec and will complete an overtaking time of 4.9sec to make 120km/h from 80km/h. My comments about sports car performance aren’t an exaggeration. Ford is quite proud of its Ecoboost range of engines; they have been developed not so much for the performance I’ve just commented on, but they also stand out for their economy. As it turned out, I drove the new Escape at city speeds for a fair chunk of my evaluation and that wasn’t kind to the economy, with the fuel usage readout listing around 10.6-litres per 100km (27mpg) when I took the car back to the dealership. That’s quite distant from Ford’s combined average cycle claim of 8.6l/100km (33mpg), but that’s put into perspective when you take into account the 6.2l/100km (46mpg) sitting instantaneously at a steady 100km/h, the engine turning over at just 1750rpm.

By Ross Kiddie Escape has been a popular brand for Ford New Zealand. That being the case, I was surprised when the name of the sport utility vehicle was dropped in favour of Kuga. The latter also sold well, but now Ford has reverted back to Escape, the latest name change also coinciding with a new release. Those who do relate to the old Escape will be aware of its pedigree; it was a model shared similarly with Mazda (Tribute) in New Zealand and had its origins in Taiwan. The new Escape is totally different. It is now sourced from Europe – Spain to be exact, and unlike its V6 predecessor it has only four cylinders, but there are many varying engine types – diesel and petrol and in 1.5-litre or 2-litre capacity. The range is extensive, with seven models starting from $37,990, some offered in fourwheel-drive. The test car was Titanium-badged and sits in the line-up at $53,490; there is only one model with a higher ticket and that is the diesel-powered version with the same specification ($54,990). The 2-litre petrol, all-wheel-drive variant is certainly a worthy choice. The Escape in this form is a cross between the traditional SUV and a sports car, that comment simply because of its engine output – it is rated at 178kW

with a familiar name

R I H A ‘Ceverybody!S‘

The evaluation car was riding on sport specification Continental tyres (235/45 x 19in). With their wide footprint and formidable reputation there is a lot of steering feel and strong self-centering feel within the steering mechanism. Turn-in is direct and accuracy within the handling process is positive. I particularly like the way the Escape handles, and that doesn’t surprise me. I’m a big European Ford fan, and the way the designers engineer balance and handling ability into the chassis of all their varying model styles is a credit to them. The Escape is also fitted with state-of-the-art gear for comfort, convenience and safety. Some of the major items include full leather trim with heated front seats, satellite navigation, full-length electric sunroof, voice recognition communication and infotainment, and radar cruise control. Of course, it is also five-star safety rated. I was a little ambivalent when I picked up the Escape; I knew that its engine wouldn’t live up to the thrill of the old Volvo-derived, 2.5-litre, turbo five-cylinder unit found in some variants of the old Kuga, which is still one of my favourite engines. That being the case, the Escape’s 2-litre engine had to really work hard to win me over and I should have known it wouldn’t disappoint. Its honesty, power outputs and generally quiet operating manner make it a real honey. Just as well, then, that the rest of the vehicle has the quality to support it – the entire package is quite outstanding. It will certainly lure Escape buyers of old, and those who are contemplating trading up from Kuga.

STRIKING: Marigolds in full bloom. They flower annually.

Still time to plant IF YOU haven’t got your summer planting finished it’s not too late to get your vegetables and flowers in the ground. Hopefully, you will at least have your soil ready for planting. If not, then add in plenty of compost or garden mix now and combine well with your existing soil before you plant out. There is something special about growing your own vegetables – watching them grow from seed/seedling to a scrumptious crop through your own tender loving care might be why they taste better. No matter how big or small the space available; you can successfully grow veges in regular garden beds, raised beds or in pots and containers. Tasty vegetables to plant now include beans, beetroot, carrots, celery, corn, cucumber, onions, peas, pumpkin, radish, potatoes, spinach, tomatoes and zucchini, not to mention the great range of lettuces available. If space really is an issue, there are plenty of dwarf varieties you can grow. For plants that need support like tomatoes or beans, put your support stakes/structures in place before you plant your young plant so you don’t disturb the roots later on. Summer flowering annuals can also be planted now in either beds or large containers. Flower varieties to grow are alyssum, aster, cornflower, cosmos, livingstone daisy, lobelia, marigold,

nemesia, portulaca, petunia, statice, salvia, stock, sunflowers and zinnia – to name just a few. Also, think about planting some varieties in your vegetable garden to help attract bees and other beneficial insects to aid pollination. Fresh herbs can also now be safely planted, such as basil, chives, dill, marjoram, mint, oregano, parsley, sage, tarragon, thyme and rosemary. They can be grown successfully in containers or in the garden, preferring a hot, free-draining site. Add some fertiliser to fruit trees and shrubs to encourage growth. Citrus trees should be fed with a specific citrus fertiliser. Do not apply fertiliser in very dry hot conditions such as the peak of summer when plants can suffer from heat or moisture stress.

Keep garden design simple SIMPLE, uncluttered garden design is especially appropriate when space is limited. Whether you want a serene look or something dramatic, you can achieve it by mass planting just a few carefully chosen plant species, each with strong features. Flowers are not essential (year round good looks and healthy foliage are more important), but as seasonal highlights they can make the garden all the more interesting. Mass planting by itself can be dull. Break up the monotony by choosing an accent plant that can be repeated throughout the design. Planting in pots adds extra zing and makes it easy to change or relocate your accent plants when you feel like a new look, or a change between seasons. As well as accents, every garden needs a strong focal point. Often a sculpture, this could also be a piece of furniture or garden architecture, a water feature, or just one stunning plant in a spectacular pot. Container gardening is a great way to enjoy getting your hands dirty. The trend is towards simplicity – bigger pots and less of them. Classy containers deserve classy plants, and those that last the distance. For pots in prime positions choose plants with a strong

STRONG: Mass planting provides this corner with something dramatic.

well defined shape, preferably symmetrical so that they look good from all angles. Cordyline red fountain is one such plant. Its cascading mass of bright burgundy leaves rises from a short central base, becoming thicker and more lavish with time. Tolerant of dry spells, cordyline red fountain performs exceptionally well in a large pot. Another spectacular container plant is cordyline caruba black. With wide shiny purple-black leaves and a strongly upright habit (up to 1.2m tall by 45cm wide), it makes a striking contrast in both colour and form. Bromeliads and slow growing

cycads (sago palms) are ideal container plants for warm climates. The favourite bromeliad for big pots is Alcantarea imperialis, a stunningly symmetrical plant with bold leathery leaves. Alcantera is a warm climate plant but will tolerate cold nights, and even light frosts once settled. Containers offer a no fuss way to enjoy the seasonal colour of bulbs and flowering annuals. When flowering stops, pots can be replanted or simply moved from view. A fabulous summer accent plant for a warm climate garden is canna tropicanna. Fantastic in large containers, it is loved for its fiery striped leaves, followed by tall bright orange flower spikes. Cut right back in autumn the vibrant leaves reappear with fresh brilliance in spring. When we plant whole groups of a few carefully chosen varieties, the effect is bold and deliberate, bringing strength and character to the garden. But not all plants are suitable for mass planting. Anything with a down time is going to be a blot on your landscape for a large part of the year. So the first priority is to choose a plant that looks great for at least most of the year.

WARM: Use canna tropicanna for visual affect.

Big Volvo has benefit of powerful engine

OVER 1000 VEHICLES FOR SALE

FREE WEEKLY MAGAZINE

Driven „„ By Ross Kiddie FROM THE company that brought us some of the most delightful internal combustion engines of all time, I was surprised to hear that Volvo is planning to make electric vehicles only from 2020. That being the case, I must say that I’m disappointed to see the end of the wailing, Yamahainspired V8 that thrilled us so much, and the fabulous five-cylinder series that characterised the company for decades. However, Volvo is saying farewell to petrol power with a bang, they have a new four-cylinder engine which can only be described as extraordinary, the power outputs are mammoth for a 2-litre unit – 235kW and 400Nm. The car I experienced this engine in is the Volvo S90 T6 – a four-door luxury sedan, in this case in Inscription specification. Of course, those power figures can’t be achieved without some sort of forced induction, the engine is both supercharged and turbocharged. That’s not unusual, Volkswagen had a design which used both techniques but it didn’t glean quite as much power as Volvo claim. That aside, the S90 is quick, it will launch to 100km/h in 5.9sec and will top end at 250km/h, that’s not bad for a two-tonne vehicle. Yes, the S90 is big, at almost 5m it cocoons those on board with space to burn and high levels of comfort. When you think of a prestige vehicle you normally associate that with a premium price, but at just on $100k the S90 Inscription is a bargain for its level of kit and performance. The specification details are way too comprehensive to detail at length, but I must make mention of the central command centre, which bears a close resemblance to an iPad and has a similar operating system, its functions are deep and control most of the cabin’s integral features. You would guess correctly that the S90 has safety features in abundance, all of the new-age gear is included and, as we know from Volvo, it has some of the items which are pre-

autonomous, Volvo is just a short step away from producing driverless cars. However, the S90 is all about the driving experience, and there is a threemode driveline management protocol system which the driver can select to best adapt for each journey – economical, comfort and sport. • Price – Volvo S90 T6, $99,900 • Dimensions – Length, 4963mm; width, 1879mm; height, 1443mm • Configuration – Four-cylinder, four-wheel-drive, 1998cc, 235kW, 400Nm, eight-speed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 5.9sec • Fuel usage – 7.2l/100km

I used comfort mostly, the engine is just so powerful it will respond dynamically in that mode if requested. The surge of power is delightful and the subdued shriek as the supercharger winds up is delightful to listen to. Drive is channelled through an eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine/gearbox combination is smooth, shifts can barely be felt, and with the close proximity of ratios the engine is kept honest and eager. That is if you make wilful use of the accelerator, if you want to drive sedately then the engine works almost in a lethargic manner, changing at around the 2000rpm mark, optimising the torque curve and the low area at which the engine develops its power. Incidentally, like most

forced induction engines, peak power is rewarded at just 5700rpm, while the strong torque maximum is listed from 2200rpm to 5400rpm. The result is a fluid flow of power which is strong and exciting right up to the red-line area. No matter what speed you are travelling, the S90 is a relaxed and capable traveller. Volvo claims a 7.2-litre per 100km/h (39mpg) combined cycle fuel usage average. I couldn’t get anywhere near that, but my 10l/100km (28mpg) figure could be excused by a couple of in-traffic, stop-start trips across the city. Even though the S90 is a quite bulky, it feels agile and a lot of that can be put down to the chassis. Drive is fed to all four wheels, and with 20in Pirelli tyres the car has steering to envy. The PZero rubber is often regarded as the world’s finest in terms of grip and quality, the steering in the S90 is accurate and feedback is simply delightful. I took the evaluation car on my usual high country run and it covered ground effortlessly and capably, and that from a vehicle that could almost be regarded as limousine-like. I’m scheduled to drive a new Volvo XC60 sport utility vehicle soon, depending on what future models are released by Volvo it could well be my last drive of a pistonpowered vehicle from the company. Whatever the outcome, Volvo has certainly saved one of its best powerplant to last, or thereabouts. However, I am sure whatever the company produces in the future, there will be more surprises.

UPGRADE:

Matt Summerfield competing in his Subaru Impreza last weekend at Tauranga. He is hopeful a new group AP4 car could help him go one better in next year’s national rally championship.

Runner-up Summerfield has sights set on new car „„ By Gordon Findlater A NEW ride in 2018 could be the ticket for Matt Summerfield after finishing second in the closest New Zealand Rally Championship title fight in recent history. Although disappointed not to have claimed a maiden national title Summerfield can also acknowledge that his team have punched above their weight on a limited budget. The 25-year-old battled against the odds this year, competing in a 10-year-old Subaru. The majority of the front-runners in the championship are operating brand new AP4 vehicles. “Ideally another car would be best but if not, then I still feel like next year we could still turn up with the car we have and give it good nudge. It would be bloody hard work to do it like that though,” said Summerfield. Summerfield, 25, finished second at the weekend’s Rally New Zealand in Tauranga behind World Rally Championship star Hayden Paddon in his Hyundai i20 AP4. However, the result wasn’t enough for him to overhaul Andrew Hawkeswood

in the New Zealand Championship. Hawkeswood went into the final round of the championship with a 10-point lead on Ben Hunt, with Summerfield one point behind in third. Summerfield took away a total of 30 championship points from the final round. However, he needed Hawkeswood to run into trouble on the rally’s final day if he was to have a chance of overhauling him. Hawkeswood finished third in his Mazda2 AP4, 7.9sec behind Summerfield to win the championship by 10 points. An 11th place finish saw Hunt slip to third in the final championship standings. Summerfield was the only driver in this year’s

championship to win two rounds. However, gearbox failure at the opening round at Rally of Otago and a crash at Rally of Coromandel proved costly. Next year’s championship will feature a new event. Rally South Canterbury will feature on June 23, three weeks after Rally Canterbury. With Rally Otago on April 14-15 the 2018 championship will feature an even split of North and South Island events, unlike previous championships. “It’s definitely going to help having another rally down south. Some of us are pretty familiar with the South Canterbury roads,” said Summerfield. “It’ll save some money as well.”

Pupil in form with bat and ball „„ By Gordon Findlater A FUTURE star in women’s cricket has been unearthed from Heaton Intermediate’s three-peat at the New Zealand Primary School Shield. Estella Wallace was the top run scorer and won the tournament’s MVP award after scoring 209 runs in four innings at the tournament finals. She finished unbeaten in three of those innings, meaning she finished with an average of 209 and a strike rate of 105.56. The year-eight pupil

TALENT: Estella Wallace averaged 209 with the bat for Heaton on the way to winning the national primary school title. ​ also finished as the fourth highest wicket-taker, with nine wickets at an average of 7.33.

The national title was Heaton’s fifth in six years. They went through the tournament relatively unchallenged with their narrowest victory coming in the form of a 27-run victory over Holy Cross School from Papatoetoe. Wallace may not be the only future star to come out of Heaton. Last year Georgia Edge won the MVP award. The now Christchurch Girls’ High School student was recently named in the under-21 Canterbury Junior Magicians squad.

Meredith eyes up ASB Classic „„ By Gordon Findlater FRESH OFF winning his first Canterbury Open title, James Meredith now hopes to put his name into one of the best ASB Classic line-ups ever assembled. Meredith, 27, will compete in the New Zealand Tennis Championships in Auckland next week. The winner of the tournament is granted a wildcard entry into the ASB Classic held in Auckland in January. “That’s the goal,” said Meredith. “Getting there won’t be easy though, there will be a lot of quality players on court next week who have a realistic chance of doing exactly the same. There should be some really good contests,” said Meredith. Five top-20 world ranked players are confirmed for next year’s ASB Classic including 2009 US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro, world No 8 Jack Sock and two-time winner in Auckland John Isner. “It’s a huge line-up. To play in a tournament with names like that would be a dream,” said Meredith. It will be just the second time Meredith has contested

meeting with any of the other top seeds. He recently defeated Tearney 6-1, (retired) in the Auckland interclub competition. He has also previously accounted for Sitak 7-6, 6-1 at the 2015 Canterbury Open. At the weekend, Meredith added his name to the Canterbury Open trophy. The tournament has run since 1901 and contains names such as Onny Parun, Brian Fairlie, Alistair Hunt, David Lewis and Mark Nielson and Rubin Statham. He cruised through the opening two rounds of the tournament before defeating his brother Matthew Meredith 6-1, 6-4 in the semi-final. In the final he met Elmwood’s Hayden POISED: James Meredith will look to become a national champion after his Canterbury Open win at the weekend. Joblin.

Pride secure another home football final „„ By Gordon Findlater CANTERBURY United Pride have booked their fourth straight home final in the National Women’s League. Going into Sunday’s final round of action, the Pride needed a win to keep their hopes of a title defence alive. However, with other results going their way it means they finished at the top of the roundrobin standings and have advanced directly to the final at English Park on December 10. A young Pride team, depleted of their four national team players, defeated Central Football 3-2 in Palmerston North. The Pride were rocked by an early Central goal when Rose Morton found the net. But the Pride soon hit back with a brace to Cody Taylor putting them in front and the vital win seemed secure when Rebecca Lake made it 3-1. Football Ferns Annalie Longo, Victoria Esson, Meikayla Moore and Aimee Phillips have all now retuned from national duties in Thailand and will be available for the final at English Park. The Pride will meet the winner of the Auckland Football and Southern United match this weekend.

Extending outdoor living Rain and wind-proofing an outdoor space adds value to a property. With a roof or clear vinyl sides, your buyers can see an area where rain doesn’t stop play. Thanks to blitz advertising, most Kiwis have heard the name Archgola. The company and others like it can add canopies to decks, enclosing the space for year-round use. Undercover verandas, pergolas and gazebos can be turned into living space by adding side panels, which effectively create a conservatory. Restaurants often use these spaces, so there’s no reason why home owners can’t as well. Roll-down clear vinyl blinds are a popular choice, which, if you’re lucky, can be bought ready made from hardware stores such as Bunnings and Mitre10. If not, there are plenty of companies that will custom manufacture to fit. Usually these blinds zip into place and are stored using a rope-and-pulley system. Mounting your blinds is very simple. Typically it involves screwing the mountings into wood or installing a track then fitting the blind. Other options include roll-up shade cloths or other gazebo or veranda sides, such as canvas. These aren’t as windproof as the vinyl blinds, meaning they’re not a 12-month solution. If you don’t already have an outdoor living space, building a pergola doesn’t generally need planning permission.. Provided the pergola is less than 10 sq m in size, it is usually okay to add

a roof. But a quick call to the council is a good idea; never risk building an unpermitted structure. Another option for quick and easy rain and windproof outdoor living is a pop-up gazebo. These can be turned into dining areas to give buyers a glimpse of what they could do themselves. It’s important to dress them so it doesn’t look like you’ve just plonked a gazebo on the lawn. Lights, plants, furniture and even place settings can really give a gazebo the Pinterest touch and bring it to life as an outdoor entertaining hub for the home. The more you pay for pop-up gazebos, the better UV protection of the fabric and powder coating of the steel you get. Heating the outdoor space also makes it more usable. The cheap option is a patio heater. Permanent gas, wood or pellet fireplaces and fire pits are easier on the eye and can make a design statement, all-important when selling a home. For wind protection, it’s reasonably simple to erect trellis and staple brush sides to it or the existing fence. Bamboo is particularly good for this purpose, especially if you have access to a free source although you could also buy it at all good hardware stores.
