MORE than 2500 people took to the Port Hills on Saturday for a remembrance run to mark two years since the February 2011 earthquake and show support for the children who lost a parent in the disaster. The inaugural Mitre 10 Mega A Run to Remember was the brainchild of St Martins man Hayden Stockdale, a keen runner who wanted others to experience the feeling of running along the Summit Road, taking in the views of Christchurch City, Pegasus Bay, the Southern Alps and the Canterbury Plains and reflect on what a wonderful place it was, despite the earthquakes, the uncertainty and the hardships of the past two years. Mr Stockdale had initially expected about 500 people to take up the challenge of the 12-kilometre fun run or walk from

Victoria Park, up the Harry Ell Track, along the Summit Road and down Rapaki Track, finishing at Hansen Park. Then the entries climbed to 1000, 1500, 2000 and more. “I just think people really bought into what we were trying to do or create,” he said. The atmosphere at the starting line was one of camaraderie and a sense of what the event was signifying. At the finish line, spot prizes, giveaways, food stalls and music kept people entertained until speeches were made and a minute’s silence was held at 12.51pm to remember the earthquake victims, after which children released 185 red and black balloons. Having done the hard yards this year to set it up from scratch

with a dedicated team of people who had never organised such an event before, Mr Stockdale said many people were asking him if the event would be repeated next year and onwards. “I spent about half an hour with my partner on Sunday morning talking about how we could do it next year…probably a definite maybe that we will run it again next year, with a few tweaks here and there.” He said while the final count had not yet been completed, he thought they had raised more than $20,000 for the Canterbury Earthquake Children’s Trust. • To see the video watch CTV News Tuesday February 26 On Demand at ctv.co.nz

“I think it is something which had to be done as the population has moved.”

“It is a really bad thing because they should have used the schools with falling rolls for further education and retraining, rather than just trying to save money.”

“I think it is sad. There are a lot of upset children who feel as if they belong to the schools, which are second homes, and that they have lost that.”

“I feel sorry for the smaller schools which have had to relocate. In terms of transport, families who do not have a car now have to find alternative transport, when the children used to walk to school.”

“There only needs to be one school, the school of hard knocks, which most teachers have never attended, therefore rendering themselves unable to adapt to the ever-changing, real world.”

Funding injection for Canterbury Samantha Early | samantha@mainlandpress.co.nz

Support: Canterbury Community Trust chairman Alec Neill announces a one-off $25million cash injection for post-earthquake recovery. Photo: Samantha Early

THE Canterbury Community Trust announced a boost to Christchurch on the two-year anniversary of the February 22 earthquake – a one-off injection of $25 million towards the city’s social infrastructure. The announcement was made in front of a tree draped in fluorescent fabric, on which hung 25 smaller trees, representing $1 million each. Trust chairman Alec Neill said they were dipping into the trust’s capital reserves for only the second time in its history to fund initiatives to support the region’s postearthquake recovery. Most of the money, $10 million, will go towards social and affordable housing in a partnership with the Government’s Social Housing Unit, which itself is allocating an additional $21 million. A further $6 million, will form the Rebuild Community Fabric Fund – to which

organisations can apply for projects that will generate employment opportunities. “It’s a bit like the Dragon’s Den,” Mr Neill said, referring to the popular reality television series in which entrepreneurs present their business ideas to secure investment. A regional fund of $5.1 million will be for the Trust’s other regions of Nelson, Marlborough and the Chatham Islands and a partnership fund with Ngai Tahu has been allocated $2 million. A further $1.9 million has been put aside for an Event Development Fund. Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee welcomed the announcement. “When you have a rainy day like this, to be able to dip in there and come up with a large amount of capital to make an extremely big difference, it’s fantastic,” he said.

News in brief Cricket memorial THIS Sunday the Sumner Cricket Club is running a memorial T20 cricket match in honour of the late Des Lyons. The long-time Sumner resident, who died in January 2012, was a valued member of the cricket club and its committee, maintaining the St Leonards Square wicket block and surrounds for several years. Mr Lyons was also involved with many other sports, including surf life-saving. The Sumner community has decided to instigate an annual cricket match in his honour, which would also help raise funds for the cricket club. The first Des Lyons Memorial Cricket Match will be played on Sunday at St Leonards Square, starting at 3pm, between a Presidents’ XI and a Des Lyons Invitational XI. It will be preceded by a T20 exhibition match featuring local identities, starting at 11am.

Ellerslie in top five ELLERSLIE International Flower Show exhibition manager Kate Hillier says while the Chelsea Flower Show is still regarded as the best garden show in the world, Ellerslie is closing in on it and now ranks among the top five shows internationally. “The exhibitors at Ellerslie know Christchurch people are passionate about their gardens so they pull out all the stops,” Ms Hillier said.

Residents’ survey CHRISTCHURCH residents say they have enough money to meet basic needs, trust others and think diversity is a good thing more than people in other large cities, according to the 2012 Quality of Life Survey released on Tuesday. Co-sponsored by the Christchurch City Council, the survey canvassed the views of residents on issues affecting their quality of life across New Zealand’s largest urban centres. Alcohol and drugs, graffiti, vandalism and air pollution emerged as key issues Christchurch people were increasingly unhappy about. Concerns about dangerous driving plagued Christchurch people more than residents of any other city surveyed. The survey shows a trend of declining perceptions of wellbeing across the country since it was last done in 2010.

LAST Friday’s memorial events scattered around our shattered city took many forms - from the formal Latimer Square service, to flowers being scattered into the Avon River. Dignified, solemn, sensitive but all with a sense of the huge impact this has had on us all. There was also an underlying sense of hope. Not in all quarters, as there are large sections in our community waiting for answers, waiting for certainty, that if not forthcoming in the next year will surely see the community’s spirit wear very thin. Troubling for this region is the ‘over Canterbury’ sentiment that now seems to be filtering through. Maybe they are ‘sick of the Christchurch earthquake’ but then again so are we. We are living in this nightmare not of our making. At least the Government understands the extent of devastation and the amount of work that needs to be done. They also understand the Canterbury rebuild is critical to how they will balance the books. The rest of New

Zealand needs to understand how important our recovery and rebuild is to the financial security of this country. We understand for some people the country begins and ends at the Bombay Hills. Perhaps if the rest had to walk a mile in our shoes then their reaction as to we should be ‘over it’ by now would cease. Imagine if the school closures process had happened in Tauranga or Auckland. What if the earthquake had been in Wellington and their homes and business had suffered the same fate and they were wading through all the bureaucracy we are enduring? The insurance copout and the unnecessary delays are harsh lessons to anybody watching on the sidelines. Two years on has shown that Cantabrians are strong, patient and resourceful. New Zealand needs to show the generosity of two years ago and then we will all be better for it. As our lovely summer turns autumn we need each other to build a city that has a rightful place in New Zealand.

Wheeling and dealing JOHN Key was hailed as a wheeler-dealer. The multimillionaire merchant banker money trader would do the business, cut deals and create growth and jobs for all. So they said. But they overlooked a critical difference between the world of business and the theatre of politics. In business, players negotiate deals that best serve their interests. Deals can be win-win. Politicians, however, are elected to serve the public interest. That usually involves some compromise. In politics, deals can be loselose. Also different is the way deals are struck. The result is critical in business. Whatever works. In politics, though, process is more important. It’s not so much where you’re going but how you get there. It’s the process that the deputy auditor general found to be flawed in the proposal for Sky City to build a big convention centre in Auckland in return for being allowed to have more pokie machines.Reading the report on the deal is like trying to watch a rugby match through the opaque louvre windows of the grandstand’s toilet. Nothing to see here, nothing to see there. But wait! Was that a forward pass? And what happened to all the other players? Although our politicians stride across the world stage punching above their weight, or height

in the case of foreign minister Murray McCully and trade minister Tim Groser, New Zealand’s constitutional set-up most closely resembles that of an Australian state. Deals struck in secret that give preferential treatment to one player, like Sky City or Warner Brothers, will ensure that the state we most closely resemble is Western Australia. Google ‘Perth’ and ‘cronyism’ and blow your data cap. What the Prime Minister actually told Sky City over dinner on November 4, 2009 may never come out. But the Government’s part of the bargain has to be delivered under the full glare of public scrutiny. An increase in Sky City’s pokie machine numbers will almost certainly require an amendment to the Gambling Act 2003. Even with the assured support of ACT MP John Banks, National is still one short of the 61-vote bare majority in this 121seat Parliament. The ultimate deal maker - or breaker - will be United Future’s Ohariu MP Peter Dunne. His vote will be decisive. It won’t be easy for him. After sitting on the political fence between National and Labour for so long his feet may be caught in the wire.

Chinese lanterns to light up Hagley Park

History uncovered Tom Doudney tom@mainlandpress.co.nz

THE foundations of an 1880s roller skating rink and a suspected 1860s circus peg are among the archaeological discoveries from excavations at New Regent Street. The dig was carried out when contractors conducting repairs to the existing 1930s buildings needed to take up the floors. The site has a long history of varied use. A boot factory and roller skating rink were previously based there and during the 1860s, before it was built on, circuses used the Holding history: Archaeologists Nick Cable, left, field. Among items found by Opus archaeologists and Patrick Harsveldt with some of the artefacts Nick Cable and Patrick Harsveldt were a discovered in the New Regent St excavations. rusted 1880s roller skate, a large metal peg period. and a remarkably intact china tea cup. “So we had this fantastic slice of a cake Each subsequent layer excavated had which tells the story of the history of that offered up artefacts from a different time site,” Mr Cable said. Auspicious: The Lady White Snake lantern, a brand-new lantern made in Zigong, China to celebrate the Year of the Snake, will feature at this weekend’s Lantern Festival in North Hagley Park.

Christine de Felice christine@mainlandpress.co.nz

THE glow from hundreds of Chinese lanterns will again light up North Hagley Park this weekend for the ninth running of the Chinese Lantern Festival in Christchurch. Organisers expect more than 70,000 people to attend the family-oriented event, which includes local and international performances, traditional and contemporary music, cultural and martial arts demonstrations and a variety of food and drink. The 2013 festival has some new additions, including snakes to mark the Chinese Year of the Snake, zodiac animals, symbols of good luck, as well as some old favourites from previous years. It is the second year the festival will be held in Hagley Park. It was held in Victoria Square before the February 2011 earthquake. “We liked the compact nature of the Victoria Square site because it created an exciting

atmosphere,” organiser Catherine Lister said. “For this year, the site plan has been set up so you can wander through and take a good look at things.” She enjoyed seeing people’s eyes, especially the children’s, light up when they saw the large lanterns. The Lantern Festival has been part of Chinese New Year celebrations since the Han Dynasty. It is usually held on the 15th day of the lunar New Year and marks the end of New Year celebrations. The event was first held in Christchurch in 2005 and is organised by the Asia New Zealand Foundation. Entry is free. The festival runs from 5pm to 10.30pm this Saturday and Sunday. Car parking is available for $5. The car park entrance is off Riccarton Avenue and the exit is on to Deans Avenue by the Riccarton roundabout.

Wreaths were then laid on a temporary Latimer Square last Friday.

The service began with an address – Mihi community groups, and groups and individuals Whakatau – given by Henare Rakiihia, from the different nationalities that had lost representing Ngai Tuahuriri, the principal hapu citizens in the earthquake Hundreds of people gathered at Christchurch of the local Ngai Tahu tribe.

remembrance,” Ms Jansen said. At Wainoni Methodist Church a candle was lit for each of the 185 earthquake victims. This was followed by speeches from MP for Christchurch Central Nicky Wagner and Reverend John Meredith of Wainoni. Residents then followed bagpiper Graham Love to the river’s edge where MP Lianne Dalziel spoke reflecting on the earthquake and how Christchurch was able to come together as a community and get through. People then cast origami peace cranes, made by the Wainoni Avonside Community Services Trust, and flowers into the river. Messages of love and hope were tied to a tree with red ribbon – activities which were repeated at River of Flowers commemorations hosted by community groups across the city. Canadian Jerry Stuart, who was visiting Christchurch for the first time, was glad to be able to attend the service. “I’m proud to be here with my brother and remember those that have been lost,” he said. Rev Meredith said although we grieved the loss of those that died “we all want to move on, and not stand still”.

visitors must step inside to experience. A series of steel strings are tuned to 28 tonal intervals to represent the 28 people associated with CPIT who lost their lives in the earthquake. The artists, former CPIT student Chris Reddington and former staff member Stuart Lloyd-Harris, were commissioned to make the memorial by the CPIT Council. “It has a serious role as a memorial but is also a celebration of how we each negotiated our experiences of the earthquakes,” Mr Reddington said. Gap Filler marked the day in their own style, with people encouraged to go along to the Pallet Pavilion on the former Crowne Plaza site, write a message on a piece of paper and pin it to the pallets. Later in the evening more people gathered to share cake together. Pallet Pavilion event programme co-manager Amy Jansen said she wanted to do something simple which would allow people to express what they were still feeling about the earthquakes. “People just walk in and read the notes and absorb what everyone else is saying and then they will leave their own and go and that is really what I wanted it to be, just a small expression of

IT was around the dining table of a ritzy central Auckland hotel room that I recently got the opportunity to preview Irrational Games’ muchanticipated Bioshock Infinite. 2K Games’ PR Manager Alan Moore is normally a reserved, unassuming man, but his enthusiasm was obvious – this was going to be good. I was let loose on the first four hours of Bioshock Infinite. 2K is proud of this game and has nothing to hide – except the highly secret plot developments later in the game. Set in 1912, the game is based in the fictional floating city of Columbia. You play as Booker DeWitt, an ex-Pinkerton agent forced to track down a girl named Elizabeth who has powers a lot of people are interested in. It’s not long before Booker discovers a dark side to this floating paradise and through regular hints that could easily go unnoticed you

could be forgiven for thinking that some kind of time travel is involved later in the game. Bioshock Infinite is laced with tongue-in-cheek humour and swings from serene and relaxing settings to intense fire fights, all while keeping you on your toes with a general feeling of uneasiness. I for one can’t wait to play again upon its release on March 26.

CHILDREN carefully placed flowers around a magnolia tree, surrounding a new plaque which reads ‘In loving memory of Ivy Cabunilas, mother of Reshnee and Ryanna, 22-2-2011’. It was one of the ways Addington’s Sacred Heart Parish was remembering a valued member, 33-year-old Mrs Cabunilas, a student of Kings Education who was among the 185 to be killed in the Christchurch earthquake. She was from the Philippines and worked as a health assistant in Cashmere. Her twin girls, now aged 13, moved back to their homeland shortly after the earthquake with their father Ronaldo. Sacred Heart Parish School principal Trish Sleeman recalled memories of Mrs Cabunilas laughing and having fun as the first “brave” mother from the school’s Filipino community to come along on the a “Kiwi” camp to Living Springs. “I still remember her standing outside room four, every Filipino parent went up to Ivy and gave her instructions about their children, and she said she would look after them.” During the service, the plaque was blessed by parish priest Rev John Craddock and placed in the ground next to the magnolia tree, which was planted on the earthquake’s first anniversary. Ivy’s sisters-in-law, Dorothy and Doreen Cabunilas, attended the ceremony at their nieces’ former school. “It’s very touching because although it has been two years already it still feels like it has

been yesterday. It’s very thoughtful of the school to have a tree in her memory,” Dorothy Cabunilas said. Rev Craddock said Ivy’s legacy was also continuing within the parish with Ivy Speak, a programme in which newcomers to New Zealand buddy up with parishioners to practise their New Zealand accents and decipher Kiwi idioms, like ‘sweet as’.

Opened in 1999 Barrington Jewellery Centre offers unique service where you can purchase your engagement, wedding rings and remakes, have jewellery repaired, ring resizing and restoration completed, as well as your precious items of jewellery valued.

Clarity Diamonds – Edwin Edmonds TRENDS IN RINGS : There is a trend towards the use of rose gold in engagement and wedding rings. The example to the left is a good illustration of using a hint of rose gold in the lovely white gold engagement and wedding ring set. The other trend we are noticing is the use of one wider ring instead of the traditional wedding and engagement ring this is also popular for people getting re-married, or others just wanting a classy looking celebration ring for the left hand. The 3 row ring to the left is a good example of this type of ring. Remake testimonial: “Thank you so, so much Edwin, for the fabulous ring you created for me from the three rings my dear parents and aunt had given me many years ago. It is absolutely beautiful and I LOVE it! My husband thinks it’s lovely and I have had awesome comments from friends and family and all have tried it on for size! I will treasure it and wear it with love and pride with the knowledge of it’s history.. Once again, thank you so very much.” - Charmaine, Christchurch

THE new-look Sydenham Pavilion has been officially unveiled after receiving a major upgrade. More than 120 people attended a ceremony last Sunday to celebrate the sports facility, including Canterbury Cricket chief executive Lee Germon and Canterbury Hockey chief executive Rod Templeton. The pavilion will serve cricket and hockey, as well as community groups. It’s run by the Sydenham Sports Complex, an incorporated society which looks after the facilities on behalf of the Sydenham Cricket Club and the Sydenham Hockey Club, so the sports clubs can concentrate on running their sports. The complex is on Christchurch City Council land. Sydenham Sports Complex chairman Dennis Cox said the facility was damaged in the Canterbury earthquakes and had also passed its use-by date, so the revamp was needed.

Know It Before You Need It!

All up, the upgrade project cost about “It has a winter use and a summer use but now it’s a facility we feel is more than $700,000, including the new pavilion and an upgraded artificial practice facility, funded suitable for the community’s use as well.” Built on the same footprint as the old by insurance money and donations from pavilion, the new complex includes modern charitable trusts. Both the cricket and hockey clubs changing, shower and toilet facilities for home and visiting teams along with plenty of have a long history – the hockey club was formed in 1898 and is the oldest continuous space for watching the matches. It also includes a lounge with space for up hockey club in the southern hemisphere, to 60 people and an electric scoring system. while the cricket club started in 1895, Mr Sydenham Cricket Club president Graham Cox said. The facility has been the target of vandals Harris said the CricHQ system would enable the match data to be displayed on the large in the past, so it is covered in graffiti-proof exterior scoreboard, on television sets inside paint and monitored using security cameras.

Air Force Museum extension and Cultural Collections Recovery Centre opens

New space: Air Force Museum Trust Board chairman Peter Adamson addresses the audience at the opening of the museum’s new extension.

Cotters Electrical we sell

THE new Air Force Museum extension and the Canterbury Cultural Collections Recovery Centre was officially opened by the Governor General Lieutenant General Sir Jerry Mateparae in Wigram last week. The 6400-square-metre, $14.3 million extension was originally intended to house aircraft and provide specialist large object conservation facilities but most of the space has been set aside temporarily for the restoration, storage and rehabilitation of heritage and cultural collections affected by the Canterbury earthquakes. “After the February 2011 earthquake the Museum Trust Board decided to put the museum’s needs on hold for a period and to offer the extension space to other organisations affected by the earthquake for the benefit of the community,” Air Force Museum Trust Board chairman Peter Adamson said.

“Many community organisations responsible for managing valuable heritage collections were displaced after the earthquake, putting significant cultural collections at risk. The launch of the Canterbury Cultural Collections Recovery Centre at the Air Force Museum means there is now space for collections to be safely housed and cared for until permanent long-term arrangements can be made,” Mr Adamson said. The collaborative project received grants of $2 million from the Ministry of Culture and Heritage and $1.5 million from the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Trust towards the completion of the complex. The remainder of the funding had already been raised from philanthropic grants, corporate sponsorship and gaming trusts. “The exceptional conference and events facility will be a tremendous asset for Christchurch,” Mayor Bob Parker said.

Your Home & Subdivisions

Building for you Creating a new space in which to house your family and possessions is a personal and costly experience, so it is imperative you are engaging a design and build team whose priorities match yours. Look no further than For Homes by Maxim, where their driving force is ensuring the options are endless yet the results beyond expectation. “Our designs endeavour to evoke emotions of comfort and inspiration,” says Design Manager Dayle McLauchlan. “Each space is carefully designed to enhance experiences and provoke joy.” Producing high quality, unique designs which take the whole picture into account, Homes by Maxim not only offer bespoke design but a comprehensive Plan Library which can be translated across environments, and can be found in the pages before you.

tion, finance and resolving planning issues to design and construction phases with ongoing support long after you move in. We tailor our level of involvement to a client’s needs. This may range from some technical assistance with design or an all-encompassing “turnkey” design and construction solution. Our experienced team has a diverse and multi-skilled background, and capabilities which add financial value and other benefits to any project. Homes by Maxim’s professional approach, superior experience and knowledge coupled with excellent liaison and negotiation skills ensures our client’s unique needs are met.

Ensuring Cost Effective Outcomes Our goal at Homes by Maxim is to deliver an outcome that exceeds our clients’ expectations. We do this by providing valuable input during the acquisition, concept and design phases, resulting in a combination of design, development and construction efficiencies.

Homes by Maxim is geared to be flexible in its approach to each design and build. Each is unique and requires a different team structure and focus to ensure that the best result is achieved. We always strive to obtain the best outcome overall, for the individual client and the design/build process as a whole, while also prioritising environmental, social and economic sustainability. Our multi-skilled team gives you a sense of confidence, whatever your project, as it moves from acquisition to concept to completion. As we set about building for the future, environmental considerations such as solar power and waste water management are positioning themselves as standard inclusions on the international building market. An integrated system allows Homes by Maxim to incorporate these options into any design, gain approvals and work on construction simultaneously, all the while examining alternatives, keeping designs practical, and remaining flexible – with the aim of avoiding extensive revisions. It simply becomes part of the deal, ensuring your home is not only as unique as you but has been built with a lifetime in mind.

How to regain your racing mojo IT’S the busy racing season for many a Canterbury road cyclist when hard training hopefully correlates to peak-performance epiphany. But what I’ve recently experienced recently can rob the mojo to race. Having your racing bicycles stolen followed by a daily insurance company conversation headache has made training and competition look a lot less attractive and even less achievable. So what is that a coach would recommend doing to get the all-important mojo back?

Plan. Yip simply put, in one word - plan. Plan your nutrition, race tactics and psych skills; plan the logistics of competing; plan your gear to be tickety-boo for race day; and lastly plan the final weeks of training sessions. Not only do I find having a plan a good way of distracting the mind from that feeling of being demotivated, I find it a means to motivating the mind. Planning your nutrition, race tactics and psych skills may not be something you’re familiar with but even setting the smallest of these plans in motion will enhance not only your race day

experience but also your performance. Having a plan for logistics and gear is something that cyclists often ignore to their peril yet these factors impact significantly on anxiety levels and therefore, once again on your performance. In regards to your final weeks of training, your gains will be marginal but potential losses huge - so make sure the plan errs on the side of conservatism in terms of physical strain. If you’ve read this far and your mojo is found wanting try one, a combination, or all of these things. I’m always open to your feedback at paul@christchurchcyclecoaching.co.nz.

of the New Zealand Ocean Swim Series, held at Akaroa on Saturday. In the elite men’s race, swimmer Kane Radford won by just one second over Auckland’s Phillip Ryan, with Queensland’s Josh Richardson third, another 13 seconds back. The race was tight right from the start with all three swimmers in close proximity of each other, along with the women’s winner Melissa Gorman who put in a remarkable performance. Gorman, a double Olympian and two-time Commonwealth Games medallist in the 800m freestyle, showed her class beating the entire field, other than Radford and Ryan. Her performance sent a big message to New Zealand’s best Charlotte Webby and Cara Baker. Including competitive and casual swimmers, 815 people took part in the event. Photo: Bruce Wilson

AFTER the terrible rollercoaster ride the powers that be have put New Zealand Cricket supporters through in the past six months, the ‘lads from the old country’ have proved a lifeline for the sport here. The turnaround by the public is largely down to the tourists’ efforts. If you look at the rugby teams from the Northern Hemisphere who tour ‘down under’, fans here always seem to be short-changed as they send down at best a B team and more often than not a D team. They give the impression that it is an effort to have to come and normally turn in some ordinary performances and can’t wait to get on the plane and head back home. Not so this group of young, talented professionals. They have paid the New Zealand fans the compliment of bringing down specific squads for the three forms of the game to be played. They have gone about their work in a fashion that has endeared themselves to the locals. They appear to have thought out the game plan, prepared thoroughly for every game and are enjoying the tour. It could have been easy for them to have rested

some and experimented with some others. We are minnows at the game on the world stage at present, but the compliment they have paid fans by bringing their best is a real privilege for Kiwis. At no time have we seen any arrogance from these guys. They have just gone out and played to their very highest standards. This is a mark of strength, of the depth they currently have. They know that if they slip up at any stage someone is waiting in the wings to take their place. What a contrast from the sides they are playing. We appear to always be scratching around to get the best combinations and most times we fail to get the mix right. That’s what real player depth means and their fans are lapping it up because success makes it a great team to be a fan of. Wait until the Barmy Army descends on Dunedin for the first Test and everyone will know they are in town. As with the 2005 Lions tour and the 2011 World Cup these fans bring something very unique as they get in behind their teams. May this glorious summer continue until the end of this tour.

Eco-friendly gardening

EllErsliE intErnational flowEr show -

Rachel Vogan nibbles a selection of taste treats.

any of us have looked at flowers in a salad, thought “Don’t they look pretty”, and then left them politely on the side of the plate. Well, I confess, I have done that on more than one occasion. Over recent years, I have become more adventurous. A number of wonderful plants have flowers that are quite delicious. The secret to success when using edible flowers is to keep the dish simple and not add too many other flavours that will overpower the delicate taste of the flower. I often use flowers in my cooking; friends, family and visitors are sometimes surprised by how much they enjoy them. Some even have now planted their own beds of edible flowers though I must confess my father still pushes them to the side of his plate (Oh well I don’t suppose I can convert every farmer in the country). Toss edible flowers into a salad, sprinkle them over pasta, add to hot or cold herbal or fruit teas and even put them in your sandwiches. Here are a few ideas for you to try.

Chive – The flowers have a delicate onion flavour. Use the young pink flowers, once they open, in salads and cold soups.

Rose – The petals come in a rainbow of colours. Choose smaller flowers, so the petals won’t bruise as much. The petals have a soft, delicate musky flavour, similar to vanilla. Use them in jams and jellies.

Borage – A herb with pretty, star-shaped blue flowers that taste similar to cucumber with a fresh, cool flavour that is not overpowering. You can crystallise the flowers and use them as cake decorations.

Calendula – Use flower petals to add a saffron colour and light tangy flavour to rice and fish. These flowers go a long way as the flowers have heaps of petals in each bloom.

Nasturtium – Flowers range from bright oranges to clean reds and yellows. They offer a classic peppery taste, with a hint of spice. Add to omelettes, sandwiches, salads and pastas.

Lavender – The rich purple flowers of the English lavender are hard to beat. They have a rich and heady taste, so add a little to baking, such as shortbread, biscuits and muffins. The flavour is very strong, so be careful.

Fear of being well. Do you have some hidden little (or big) fears about being well? What do you gain by being unwell? It may have been a long time since ill-health started and you do not remember what it feels like to be well. Are there some advantages in being unwell? Do you gain any of these: attention, being looked after, safety, not having to organize your life, having people around you most of the time, not having to make decisions? What would you have to face if you were really well? Would it be scary to think about looking after yourself? Would it be scary to have to make decisions without the limitations of being unwell? Would the freedom feel so unknown that it’s scary? Who would you be if you weren’t the label of your sickness? Honour yourself and be honest – face the emotions and shine in the truth that is revealed to you. annette@emotionaltherapy.co.nz

Don’t let your sore back slow you down

A

re you sick of back pain? Is it slowing you down? Then visit Muscle People and take part in their new low back pain programme, with the help of their trained team of physiotherapists. More than 80 per cent of New Zealanders suffer from a significant episode of low back pain. Of these, 84 per cent are likely to have a recurrence of the pain within a year, says Laurie Moore from Muscle People. Spinal strength and stability is the focus of the programme, concentrating on the small muscles in the back which often don’t “switch back on” after an injury. “Recent research has contributed to the development of the low back pain programme, revealing that exercise based programmes, along with pharmaceutical medicine, that focus on improving core and back muscle strength will dramatically reduce the recurrence of back pain,” says Laurie.

Pain go away: Don’t let pain stop you from living your life; visit Muscle People and discover a new you.

Client feedback to date has been positive, she says. Grant from Upper Riccarton said that he used to suffer from back pain all the time: “But now I don’t at all”. Muscle People’s low back programme suits people of all ages and fitness levels who have back or neck pain, or with core and postural weaknesses. The first step to eliminating your back pain is a telephone call to Muscle People at the YMCA in Hereford Street on 360 3606 or the Bishopdale YMCA on 961 0236. Your physiotherapist will then take you through four one-on-one sessions to assess your individual needs. “We want to make sure that the core muscles are correctly activated and will then prescribe individual strengthening and mobility exercises.” A weekly class follows for eight weeks along with a home exercise programme to complement the class. Another happy client is Julie from Avonhead: “The course has been lifechanging. I suffered from severe neck pain and was fearful of any movement. This programme has strengthened up my neck muscles, making me feel confident and like a new woman.” If you are sick of suffering from low back pain, you won’t regret taking part in Muscle People’s low back pain programme – it could change your life.

MORE than 2500 people took to the Port Hills on Saturday for a remembrance run to mark two years since the February 2011 earthquake and show support for the children who lost a parent in the disaster. The inaugural Mitre 10 Mega A Run to Remember was the brainchild of St Martins man Hayden Stockdale, a keen runner who wanted others to experience the feeling of running along the Summit Road, taking in the views of Christchurch City, Pegasus Bay, the Southern Alps and the Canterbury Plains and reflect on what a wonderful place it was, despite the earthquakes, the uncertainty and the hardships of the past two years. Mr Stockdale had initially expected about 500 people to take up the challenge of the 12-kilometre fun run or walk from

Victoria Park, up the Harry Ell Track, along the Summit Road and down Rapaki Track, finishing at Hansen Park. Then the entries climbed to 1000, 1500, 2000 and more. “I just think people really bought into what we were trying to do or create,” he said. The atmosphere at the starting line was one of camaraderie and a sense of what the event was signifying. At the finish line, spot prizes, giveaways, food stalls and music kept people entertained until speeches were made and a minute’s silence was held at 12.51pm to remember the earthquake victims, after which children released 185 red and black balloons. Having done the hard yards this year to set it up from scratch

with a dedicated team of people who had never organised such an event before, Mr Stockdale said many people were asking him if the event would be repeated next year and onwards. “I spent about half an hour with my partner on Sunday morning talking about how we could do it next year…probably a definite maybe that we will run it again next year, with a few tweaks here and there.” He said while the final count had not yet been completed, he thought they had raised more than $20,000 for the Canterbury Earthquake Children’s Trust. • To see the video watch CTV News Tuesday February 26 On Demand at ctv.co.nz

Kaiapoi excavator reaches national finals

Unfazed: Canterbury excavator champion Cameron Duncan in his “main machine”, which he drives as foreman operator for Blakely Construction.  Photo: Jessica Schaap

Jessica Schaap

KAIAPOI’S Cameron Duncan can pick up an egg then move it without breaking it and pour a cup of tea – all with an excavator. He is Canterbury’s excavator champion and will be heading to Feilding, for the first time, to compete in the finals of the National Excavator Operators’ competition in March. Mr Duncan is a foreman operator for Blakely Construction, which includes operating an excavator. He enjoys his work because he likes being outside and the challenges that come with it. “Every day something’s different – you’re doing the same thing, but different street, different area.” He entered the A&P Show competition three times before for “a bit of fun” and kept

getting third. However, this time at the championships he came out top, which qualified him for the nationals where he will have to complete surprise challenges. In previous years this has included popping a champagne cork and flipping sausages on a barbeque. However, he is not fazed and said he can pick up anything that can be done with an excavator. “I’m more than capable of doing anything they can throw at me.” The most difficult thing he has done, and achieved, with an excavator was pick up an egg sitting on a small pile of sand and move it without breaking it.

Mr Duncan will be up against 10 other regional champions, at the Feilding nationals, including defending titleholder Blair Duncan from Otago. The competitors will also have to complete rigorous construction, planning and loading challenges to test their operator skills and industry knowledge. Mr Duncan said he was “looking forward” to the competition in Feilding but was unsure how he would place. “It’s going to be an eye-opener, I’ve never been there, don’t know what I’m in for. “I’d like to win but I don’t know what the North Island operators are like,” he said. The prize will be a trophy shaped as a big orange digger, a few thousand dollars in prize money and equipment.

Hatted residents mingle over high tea MINGLING: Southshore residents, wearing outrageous hats, mixed and mingled at a high tea last Wednesday. Southshore Recovery coordinator Lisa Clarke said the event was organised to connect people and bring the community together. “This was the first time we have held a high tea. It was a great success with even five men attending. We all enjoyed mini meringues, cakes, slices, biscuits, chocolates and sponges. It was a huge success, and an opportunity for ladies to break out their best china and finest hats to enjoy a lovely day together.”

MP visits Waimakariri WAIMAKARIRI MP Kate Wilkinson aims to see Waimakariri retailers opening their doors to business as usual as soon as possible. Ms Wilkinson asked Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee to visit both the Rangiora and Kaiapoi CBDs last Friday to see for himself some of the issues hampering the recovery of local businesses. “It was really good that the Minister was able to see for himself how serious the situation is and I wanted to impress on him the need for some creative thinking in getting some of the deadlocks shifted to allow our central business districts (CBDs) to progress,” she said. “It was pleasing to see the progress in Kaiapoi, with the building of Blackwell’s department store underway and, across the road, the Waimakariri District Council plans for the Kaiapoi Service Centre also progressing.”

Remembrance run: more than 2500 runners and walkers gather at the Victoria Park starting line for an earthquake memorial run along the Port Hills.

MORE than 2500 people took to the Port Hills on Saturday for a remembrance run to mark two years since the February 2011 earthquake and show support for the children who lost a parent in the disaster. The inaugural Mitre 10 Mega A Run to Remember was the brainchild of St Martins man Hayden Stockdale, a keen runner who wanted others to experience the feeling of running along the Summit Road, taking in the views of Christchurch City, Pegasus Bay, the Southern Alps and the Canterbury Plains and reflect on what a wonderful place it was, despite the earthquakes, the uncertainty and the hardships of the past two years. Mr Stockdale had initially expected about 500 people to take up the challenge of the 12-kilometre fun run or walk from

Victoria Park, up the Harry Ell Track, along the Summit Road and down Rapaki Track, finishing at Hansen Park. Then the entries climbed to 1000, 1500, 2000 and more. “I just think people really bought into what we were trying to do or create,” he said. The atmosphere at the starting line was one of camaraderie and a sense of what the event was signifying. At the finish line, spot prizes, giveaways, food stalls and music kept people entertained until speeches were made and a minute’s silence was held at 12.51pm to remember the earthquake victims, after which children released 185 red and black balloons. Having done the hard yards this year to set it up from scratch

with a dedicated team of people who had never organised such an event before, Mr Stockdale said many people were asking him if the event would be repeated next year and onwards. “I spent about half an hour with my partner on Sunday morning talking about how we could do it next year…probably a definite maybe that we will run it again next year, with a few tweaks here and there.” He said while the final count had not yet been completed, he thought they had raised more than $20,000 for the Canterbury Earthquake Children’s Trust. • To see the video watch CTV News Tuesday February 26 On Demand at ctv.co.nz

Creativity: Art tutor Donna Steel displays samples of the types of artwork she helps children to create.

Jessica Schaap

DONNA Steel, a contemporary artist who taught art to earthquake-affected children in the eastern suburbs, is bringing her teaching skills to children in the northwest of Christchurch. In the past few years she has taught art at primary and intermediate schools and found a passion and love for teaching art to children. “Art allows us to express ourselves using colour and texture. I love to see how our choice of colour changes with how we feel. I encourage children to think outside the box and really enjoy watching them flourish and grow with confidence as they learn to play and experiment with various forms of acrylic paint and mediums,” she said. “I like to give the students a different perspective on creating art. Often when they first arrive to class they are quiet and not very confident, but over time as their confidence grows, their demeanour changes and they just blossom.”

A painting technique she has used with children is crackle paste, which appeared cracked on the paper and could be related to the Christchurch earthquakes. “I love the way that crackle paste starts off nice and smooth and as it dries it starts to crack. We never know where the cracks will go or how large or small they will be. The one constant is that, although there are lots of cracks within the artwork itself, it still remains in one piece. “Whilst working with this paste I often liken its process back to the damage we sustained over the last couple of years with the earthquakes. Some areas are damaged beyond repair whilst other areas seem hardly touched, although as a community we have been brought together stronger than ever.” She also uses a self-levelling gel, which is a clear gel of yoghurt-type consistency and, as various colours are dropped into the gel and swirled around, a marbling pattern is created. The gel self-levels, moving and

changing until it dries. The end result, she said, “always looks amazing”. “I often think about this process and how this can help us with our own lives; sometimes we don’t have full control with what happens to us and we just need to go with the flow. “I know that it is more than two years since the quakes and there has been a lot of healing done within this time but I still think there is a lot of uncertainty, loss and sadness out in our communities. Although our children are really resilient I also think they can sometimes hold onto fears and it can be hard for them to express those feelings. “I believe that the creative process within art is a great way for children to express themselves.” Mrs Steel’s classes will be held at Avice Hill in Burnside. She also has adult classes during the day at her home in Casebrook and teaches in the evenings at Papanui High School.

Riccarton Enviroschool to be gifted a unique garden Jessica Schaap A SCHOOL in Kapiti will be gifting its Ellerslie competition garden to Wharenui Primary School in Riccarton. Raumati South School chose Wharenui Primary School because it was an Enviroschool in the Christchurch region and there had been interest by groups in the past in getting a garden for the school, Raumati South School teacher Michael Stewart said. Wharenui Primary School teacher Sandi Seil was glad the school was being gifted the garden and said it would be good for “pulling the community tighter together and having the kids involved and learning about gardening”. The six-square-metre garden is broken into seven sections, which are a small representation

of what Raumati South School has in their garden, and was created by Raumati South School and community. It features an African keyhole vegetable garden, a native section, fruit trees and beneficial flowers, a pizza oven made out of Christchurch earthquake recycled bricks, a herb garden, butterfly house, swan plants and other butterfly-attracting plants, a bicycle-operated water pump, artwork created out of recycled materials and a pumice stone heart. It is worth $26,000. The school entered the Kapiti Coast Garden

Show in 2011 and 2012, winning several awards. They are using elements of their entries for their Ellerslie garden, which they began creating in September last year. The “Gifted Garden” will be broken down and rebuilt at Wharenui School by volunteers from Circle Trust, JCI Christchurch, local businesses and the community on March 10 and 11 after the Ellerslie show. The gifting will be completed with a formal presentation from the Kapiti Coast Mayor Jenny Rowan around midday on March 11.
