Help for hard-hit Edgeware, New Brighton Tom Doudney

EARTHQUAKE-damaged Edgeware and New Brighton business areas should be able to look to the future with more confidence after tomorrow’s Christchurch City Council meeting. The suburban centres are set to become the latest to get the council master-planning treatment, pending councillors’ approval. The centres would join Sydenham, Lyttelton, Sumner, Linwood Village, Ferry Rd/Main Rd and the Selwyn St shops in receiving councilassisted masterplans aimed at providing an overall vision for the rebuild and revitalisation of quake-affected areas. The master-planning process involves gathering community feedback and technical information for the council to come up with a draft plan

for the future design of the suburban centre. This is then put out for more community feedback before a final area plan is produced. Shirley-Papanui Community Board chairperson Chris Mene said the master-planning of Edgeware, where around one-third of businesses have closed or relocated due to the earthquakes, would be a significant step forward for the community. “I think given the nature of that area as a real village centre, taking the master-plan approach will allow for the right level of engagement similar to what we’ve got at Linwood Village and the Selwyn Village shops.� At least three buildings will be or have been demolished in the area, including a large area

of land on the former Hardie & Thompson site, which council staff have suggested would create the potential for new commercial development once cleared. Burwood-Pegasus Community Board chairperson Linda Stewart said she was “tickled pink� at the prospect of a New Brighton masterplan. “A master-plan means a lot to this ward because it’s not just a fix-it, patch-up plan - a master-plan will be a lot more encompassing. “It (New Brighton) has fallen by the wayside for many years and we all know that New Brighton could be much more of a destination than it currently is.� Five buildings in New Brighton’s centre have

been or will be partially or fully demolished, while six others have received either red or yellow placards. However, council staff said in their report to councillors that the potential for significant change through rebuilding might be limited when compared with other masterplan areas as the properties were spread out around the centre. While the physical damage to the shops and business was limited, the impact of the earthquakes on the residential catchment and on the centre’s appeal was thought to be significant. The potential to rethink the centre’s function and to catalyse redevelopment made it a good candidate for master-planning, the report said.

Dalziel criticises quake rebuild; Brownlee says it’s politics THE Labour Party’s new earthquake recovery spokesperson Lianne Dalziel is calling the region’s post-quake governance “flawed” which Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee denies. He says Ms Dalziel is playing politics. A red-zoned Bexley resident, Christchurch East MP Lianne Dalziel, who has been in the role about eight weeks, said there was a total mismatch between the roles of the Christchurch City Council and Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (Cera). “The Christchurch City Council’s obligation is to the whole city not just the CBD and this is a fundamental flaw in the legislative architecture.” She said Mr Brownlee had to take some responsibility for “the lack of definition around the boundaries in the role of Cera and the city council.” Mr Brownlee said he did not want to get into a tit for tat with Ms Dalziel although he noted there had

Lianne Dalziel

been no complimentary remarks from the Labour Party regarding the recovery. “It’s very disappointing; there are people who are working exceptionally hard, putting in long hours in a range of policy decisions to move things forward at a pace that by international standards has been extremely good. No other government has come to land decisions as

Gerry Brownlee

we have.” Ms Dalziel said she couldn’t understand why planning for the central business district was being handled by the council while strategic planning for the wider city was being handled by Cera. “Cera thinks it’s doing one thing, council thinks it’s doing another, council is never quite clear about what the Government is going

to pay for, what they have to pay for and so this level of frustration seems to be blowing up.” Mr Brownlee said the council’s CBD plan and the Cera overall strategy for wider Canterbury were expected to be completed one after the other with the CBD plan probably first. “Beyond the life of Cera the city council has to take over most of the things Cera puts in place – they’re intrinsically part of things.” Ms Dalziel said Cera had turned out to be a government department which did not work because there was too much pressure to conform to the political requirements of Mr Brownlee. Mr Brownlee said such comments, which suggested he had a masterplan, were “absolutely ridiculous.” “It has been a mantra for the Labour Party; if I was out of things everything would be better. It’s just politics. We’ve done a number of world firsts here.”


Chairs to remember quake victims THE victims of the February 22 earthquake will be remembered in a special art installation on the site of the fallen Oxford Terrace Baptist Church. On the anniversary 185 white-painted chairs will sit on top of freshly-laid ready-lawn, each representing someone who died in the quake a year ago to that day. The installation is a collaboration between the church and the Side Door Arts Trust. Artist Pete Majendie said there would be a variety of wooden, metal, cane and upholstered chairs in all shapes and sizes to acknowledge the individuality of each person they represented. Some family members of earthquake victims had offered to contribute a chair which personified their loved one.

CTV hearing date set by commission THE Canterbury Earthquakes Royal Commission has announced it will hold a public hearing about the Canterbury Television (CTV) building collapse beginning on June 23. The hearing is expected to take up to five weeks. The intention and purpose of the hearing will be to ascertain why the CTV building collapsed, causing such a significant loss of life. This will include at least the following: • The initial building consent issued by the local government authority, Christchurch City Coun-

cil • The construction of the building and its design • Identification of a structural weakness in 1990 and again in 1992 by a prospective tenant • Damage suffered in the September and Boxing Day (December) earthquakes and the evidence of staff in the building about the damage • The assessment process undertaken, particularly after the September earthquake Prior to the CTV hearing, on March 6, the commission will

Livingstone moves eastwards BURWOOD Pegasus city councillor Glenn Livingstone has moved in to the ward. Cr Livingstone, who lived in Bryndwr, shifted his family into a rented house in a green-zoned part of Shirley last month, more than a year after the elections. “We love where we live, it’s great,” he said. Cr Livingstone said he would have liked to move sooner but the earthquakes caused delays; he was considering homes in Dallington when the February 22 earthquake hit.

publicly hear a submission from Srecko (Alec) Cvetanov. Mr Cvetanov’s wife Dr Tamara Cvetanova, died in the collapsed CTV building on February 23 2011. Mr Cvetanov is concerned that the commission’s terms of reference prohibit it from inquiring into the search and rescue effort. The results of the Department of Building and Housing’s technical investigation into the CTV building will be able to be contested at the hearing beginning on June 23. The department’s investigation

findings are now being internationally peer reviewed by structural engineer William Holmes of Rutherford and Chekene in San Francisco. In addition, the commission’s own investigation into the collapse is ongoing. The timing for the hearings about the assessment of buildings after earthquakes and the overall regulatory framework are also yet to be decided. All commission hearings are held at St Teresa’s church hall on the corner of Riccarton Road and Puriri Street in Christchurch.

Lessons from the CTV building ON Saturday morning shortly after 7am, I wandered into the Merivale Mall to buy a newspaper. It seemed a normal enough morning - a few yawns, the quiet before the storm for the checkout operators. It was a surprise then to learn a few hours later that parts of the building, including the supermarket, had been closed after engineers discovered a section of the mall was quake-prone. This closure follows the Terrace on the Park

Letter to the editor

Dogs I read your article (Mainland Press, February 1) regarding dogs running towards you and found it funny as I was, at that minute, waiting in the physio for my ongoing treatment following the exact same sort of incident! On December 31, I took my dog for a twohour walk and was heading home. My dog was tired out and walking along quietly when another dog came out of a house and went for him, snarling and trying to bite him. I kept walking hoping it would stop and got to the end of our extendable lead. I turned and called our dog. He ran as he wanted to join me and get away, but the other dog was still grappling with him. I took the full force of both dogs (around 35kg to 40kg) on the side of my knee. Neighbours called the owner who grudgingly came out, but he had no control over his dog. He walked with me as I hobbled, saying, “I know it looks bad, but he wouldn't have done anything.� Yeah right! His dog ran on, loose, up the street and I was able to get home. I had to go to 24/7 surgery costing over $100, was signed off work for a week, and given crutches to enable me to get around. I've had six appointments with physio so far; Luckily nothing was broken, but I still can't kneel down very well so it's ongoing. Suffice to say, the sight of dogs running towards me now fills me with terror as it was really painful and frightening.

After the Boxing Day quake, only minimal damage was noticed and the building was not rechecked by engineers. Come February 22 and the façade collapsed with loss of life. The same tragedy played out at CTV where 115 died on February 22. Last week, a panel of experts convened by the Department of Building and Housing released their findings and stated, “After September 4, damage appeared relatively minor and not indicative of a building under immediate stress or having a significantly impaired resistance to earthquake shaking.â€? Minor cracking of several columns in the upper floors was found at this time. As to the effects of the Boxing Day 2010 shake on the building, the panel reported: “Eyewitnesses advised of no structural damage, but some nonstructural damage. There are no available reports on the condition of the building after this event, but photos indicate it was minor.â€? In other words, engineers did not re-inspect the building in spite of many concerns expressed by people working in the building as to the damage. The panel said that with the February 22 quake, a column on the mid to upper levels on the east side failed and set off, with almost a domino effect, a failure of other columns.

SCIRT: the Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team is rebuilding the city’s earthquake damaged roads, water, wastewater and storm water pipes

Programme funded by

Infrastructure Rebuild Team SCIRT’s commitment to safety From this year, roadworks around the city will increase             wastewater and storm water networks moves into top gear.

With so much work underway it is more important than ever that the people of Christchurch take care when driving near roadworks. The dangers our city’s road workers face every day   !   

    for SCIRT as part of the City Care team. He has noticed that speeding motorists are creating safety issues for road workers.

SCIRT will be delivering up to $40 million worth of rebuild works each month. It’s hard to imagine what this will look like. Put another way, SCIRT will have around 100 to 120 worksites operating around the city at one time. Combine this with other rebuild works such as the vertical rebuild, and the city will be a hive of construction activity.

How SCIRT is prioritising the rebuild

Fitzgerald Avenue – what’s the story?

Because this rebuild task is so large, some work will have               complex and it is important that there is a well thought out planning process in place to drive the work programme.

One of SCIRT’s major projects is the Fitzgerald Avenue ground stabilisation project. You may well have seen this project as you have driven past and wondered what it is all about.

SCIRT’s prioritisation process considers the following factors: 1. Operational prioritisation e.g.    to rivers 2. Interdependencies e.g. repairing downstream wastewater lines before upstream ones 3. Key services e.g. maintaining access to medical, emergency, education facilities and major transport routes 4. External factors e.g. plans of power companies 5. Constraints e.g. availability of resources and materials 6. Sense check e.g. review the decision and consider whether it makes common sense SCIRT’s schedule of work is still under development, but should be ready next month. Information about this will be available on                       The rebuild continues in what is a seismically active time. The good news is that, where infrastructure has been permanently rebuilt, it is standing up very well to ongoing earthquakes.

If you would like to hear more about Dan’s experience, and hear from the SCIRT Alliance Manager Duncan Gibb, you can visit and follow the link under ‘Latest news’ on the website.

The northbound lane of Fitzgerald Avenue, beside the river, was extensively damaged in last February’s earthquake. Downer, working as part of SCIRT, is stabilising the land and building a riverside retaining wall in this part of Fitzgerald Avenue, which extends from the intersection of Avonside Drive to Cambridge Terrace. The Downer team is using an innovative technique to stabilise the ground in this area. This includes the construction of eight hundred stone columns in the ground. In the event of an earthquake the strengthened ground helps prevent liquefaction and supports structures. A large section of retaining wall, 96 metres long and up to 3.2 metres high, was in place before Christmas. This is one of SCIRT’s major projects. Work on this important part of the road network is due to be completed this May.

Keeping in touch The people of Christchurch are at the heart of this infrastructure rebuild programme. We have a range of different ways to keep you informed about what is going on - so keep an eye on these places:

Demolition is very ‘dangerous’ DEMOLITION of the first two buildings in the Terrace on the Park complex began yesterday with Park Terrace and Salisbury Street blocked to traffic. The demolition of one of the blocks in particular was considered extremely dangerous by engineers. Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority general manager of operations Warwick Isaacs said there was a significant potential danger that the building could collapse once the demolition began. For this reason, the demolition method will be to “nibble” the building from the top down, from a considerable distance. “This kind of collapse would be large, noisy, and may appear uncontrolled. However, it would not be surprising as there is very little vertical strength remaining in the buildings.”





Posing danger: Terrace on the Park.

Mr Isaacs said the first two buildings would be down within the week and all displaced neighbours would be able to return to their homes.


Quake assessments ‘wearying process’ Chris Tobin

ENGINEERS are being pressed hard with so many buildings requiring post-quake inspections, president of NZ Structural Engineers, John Hare says. “There’s an awful lot to do and it’s not going to happen overnight,” he said. “It’s a wearying process especially with insurance issues and the concerns of building owners.” Mr Hare said engineers had come from outside the city to help in the building assessments, but he was not aware of the numbers. He estimated that two to three times the number of engineers were working in the city compared with before the earthquakes. As to the response of building owners having their buildings assessed, Mr Hart said there were “one or two” who were reluctant because of the cost. “By and large everyone is pretty good,” he said.”Everybody is working very hard and there’s quite a lot of pressure on.” The difficulty of the job was that buildings’ problems may not be immediately noticeable.

“Sometimes it cannot be readily apparent what a problem can be. It can take people a while to work through. Owners have to make tough decisions and sometimes someone sees something someone else doesn’t.” He considered that having more engineers working in the city would not necessarily speed things up because of the huge scale of the work and the complexity of the issues that had to be worked through. On Saturday, a section of Merivale Mall was closed after engineers questioned the building’s ability to stand up to another large earthquake. Recently, OPUS engineers found two Catholic churches, St Anne’s in Woolston and St Peter’s, Beckenham, should be closed after potential weaknesses were identified. In September, the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (Cera) instructed owners of about 8000 buildings used by the public to assess their buildings’ structural integrity and to report to Cera on their findings.





Helping eases Lyndsay’s pain

Volunteer duo: Lyndsay Voice with Mack who brings a smile to the faces of all those who visit the Arthritis New Zealand centre in Christchurch.

Gina McKenzie ASSISTING fellow arthritis sufferers has enabled Lyndsay Voice to accept the lifechanging events she has dealt with since being diagnosed with the chronic condition almost 20 years ago. Mrs Voice, of Bryndwr, recently received a third Volunteer Canterbury award for her work with Arthritis New Zealand. A full life working as a bank teller and assisting on the family farm came to a sudden halt for Mrs Voice after she found herself constantly tired and unable to walk down the stairs. “I went from being a busy active person to being unable to work, having two operations and being diagnosed with a chronic condition.” The support Mrs Voice received from the Arthritis New Zealand centre in Christchurch inspired her to take up a volunteer position 14 years ago, as a way of giving back to the

Sites to remember quake NINE sites have been confirmed as part of the River of Flowers commemorative project to mark the first anniversary of the February 22 earthquake. Led by Healthy Christchurch and the Avon-Otakaro Network (AvON), the community-driven project will allow people to commemorate the anniversary at designated sites along Canterbury’s waterways. It will provide an all-day opportunity for people to drop a flower into a river and write a message of hope on a hope tree at the designated sites. Dropping flowers into a river symbolises “letting go” and the tree of hope represents “looking to the future”. At 12.51pm, there will be a twominute silence followed by the release of balloons to remember those who died, were injured, or lost their homes.

helpful organisation. “I get a great deal of enjoyment out of volunteering and it gives me something to look forward to because I can see that I am helping people who are more badly affected than I am. “It’s also shown me that your life isn’t over when you finish work or end up with a serious illness. “You can go on and do more than you expected, but it just takes time.” Mrs Voice’s constant companion Mack also plays his part by bringing a smile to all those who work for and visit the Arthritis Centre. “He cheers everyone up and is really affectionate. When you are in pain, animals really help to make you feel better.” During the annual Arthritis Appeal month in February, Mrs Voice works full-time preparing material for the fundraising drive. “It’s a busy time, so I don’t mind working

Slow down around roadworks Roadworks around the city is increasing significantly as works to repair our city’s roads, water, wastewater and storm water networks moves into top gear. For the next four years, SCIRT, the Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team, will have around 100 to 120 worksites around the city. “Combine this with other rebuild works such as the vertical rebuild, and the city will be a hive of construction activity for some years to come. We understand that roadworks can be frustrating, but we cannot rebuild our city without them. With so much work underway it is more important than ever that the people of Christchurch take care

when driving near roadworks,” says SCIRT Alliance Manager, Duncan Gibb. Every year there are over four fatal vehicle accidents at roadworks sites in New Zealand and 11 deaths. There is an average of six road worker injuries in New Zealand due to crashes at roadworks each year. Christchurch police have committed to enforcement around worksites and are calling on motorists to be patient and allow extra time to get to their destination.

who are working to rebuild our city,” says Inspector Al Stewart, Canterbury Road Policing Manger. “Saving a few minutes by speeding through worksites is not worth risking your safety or the safety of others.” SCIRT is a partnership between Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Agency (CERA), Christchurch City Council, New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) and contractors City Care, Downer, Fulton Hogan and MacDow Fletcher.

“It’s simple. People who speed through worksites are putting lives at risk—their own lives and the lives of the men and women

Playground signs a gentle reminder of smokefree policy Almost all the Council’s 326 playgrounds in parks now have signage reminding people that they are smokefree. The Council’s smokefree policy covers playgrounds, parks, sports grounds and Council-owned events, and although interrupted by earthquake recovery work, the Council intends to progressively roll out further smokefree signs in parks as part of an integrated parks signage programme. Alan Bywater, programme manager at the Christchurch City Council’s Strategy and Planning Group, says that reaction to the policy has largely been positive. “And we know that

increased smokefree environments contribute to fewer young people beginning to smoke. The less they see smoking, the less ‘normal’ it seems.” A survey of Christchurch households in 2009 during the development of the policy reported that 87% of respondents found it acceptable to make public outdoor children’s playgrounds smokefree areas. Few parents, smoking or non-smoking, want their children to become smokers. Ismailia (Mali) Lister Crofts (35), who is married with three children, aged three, two, and her newborn has not smoked since 13 June, 2010.

Mali used to duck outside to smoke around 20 cigarettes a day. One day when she was outside smoking, she saw her oldest daughter looking through the glass door at her. She was shocked to see that she was mimicking her, pretending to smoke a cigarette. She had picked up a toy and was ‘smoking’ it. That was it for Mali, and now her husband, Kevin Lister, has given up as well. Mali says it has improved her quality of life 100 percent—“I feel so much better, I can taste my food, it’s much better for my children…and it saves money.”

Consent update Christchurch City Council is preparing for an increase in demand for building consents as a result of recent earthquakes.

If you’re thinking of doing building work, make sure you talk to the Council as early as possible as we can help you with advice on how best to complete your consent application and meet the building code. To set up a meeting for advice on the consenting process contact 03 941 8999 or see

A LONDON-based Kiwi who helped raise more than $600,000 for the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal has been named the United Kingdom New Zealander of the Year. The award, established by the New Zealand Society in 1999, was presented to Kent Gardner at a gala function in London on February 10. Dunedin born and bred, Mr Gardner, a founding partner and chief executive of property fund manager Evans Randall, made a big contribution to the ‘Step Up 4 Christchurch’ event, a charity stair run up the 1037 steps to the top of the 180-metre tall Gherkin office tower in London. The event, held on May 22 last year, raised about $620,000. Evans Randall has four billion pounds worth of assets under management, including the distinctive Gherkin building as well as landmark properties in Munich, Stuttgart, Amsterdam, Brussels and Moscow. Mr Gardner said it was

humbling to receive the recognition. “I am both proud to be a Kiwi in London, and honoured to be part of a great team of UK-based New Zealanders, who are genuinely committed to supporting their country’s interests while overseas.” Mr Gardner has been in London for the last 10 years and lives in Regent’s Park with his wife Gaye and their three young sons, Freddie, Harry and Will. He started his career with New Zealand law firm Russell McVeagh and is now commissioner of the Crown Estate Paving Commission, a trustee of the UK Christchurch Earthquake Appeal, and has been a major fundraiser for Christchurch. Awards sponsor Air New Zealand’s UK-Europe general manager Chris Myers, who was also one of the judges, presented the award. “There were some outstanding examples of New Zealanders getting behind the Christchurch cause, but Kent Gardner and his team

really stood out with their creativity and money raised; an awesome effort,” Mr Myers said. Recognition was also given to the two other finalists, Bronwen Horton and Paul Kendrick, and all the other nominees who made significant contributions in a range of activities. New Zealand Society president John Greager said the tragic consequences of the earthquake and the continuing aftershocks resulted in an unprecedented response from the New Zealand community in the UK.

Give way rule Neighbourhood policing changes to be promoted teams begin A PUBLIC awareness campaign will kick off next month to ensure that drivers are aware of changes to New Zealand’s give way rules, which come into force from 5am on Sunday, March 25. New Zealand Transport Agency chief executive Geoff Dangerfield said publicity around the rule changes was being carefully timed in order to ensure maximum awareness of the changes, while at the same time, minimising the risk of drivers starting to apply the new rules too early. “In the long run, the new rules will help to reduce confusion and reduce crashes by making decision-making easier for drivers at intersections, but there are obvious safety risks if some people start following the new rules too early. That’s why our publicity will be carefully timed and delivered.” Mr Dangerfield said a $1.2 million nationwide advertising campaign promoting awareness of the rule changes would start on March 15, 10 days prior to the ‘go-live’ date, and would continue through until April 1. The advertising campaign will be preceded by a major update to the official website for information on the new rules - www.giveway. - on February 29.

TEAMS of six police officers are on the beat in Riccarton West and Phillipstown as part of a new policing initiative. The neighbourhood policing teams will work closely with other agencies and partners in their areas to identify local problems and come up with local strategies and solutions. In Christchurch, the Phillipstown and Riccarton West areas were selected after a range of crime, demographic and community indicators were analysed. Each team includes a sergeant and five constables working within their dedicated areas. Their first tasks are making contact with agencies and organisations in the neighbourhoods and surveying the local community to identify and see which issues should be the priorities for them to address. Issues could range from gang problems and tinnie houses through to family violence, burglaries, youth crime, or other offenses. The officers responsible for the teams are Sergeant Todd Webley (Phillipstown) and Sergeant Steve Jones (Riccarton West). They can be contacted through Christchurch police on (03) 3637400.

Lantern festival wows record crowd in Hagley A RECORD crowd of 60,000 to 70,000 people flocked to the Christchurch Lantern Festival held in Hagley Park over the weekend. Asia New Zealand director of culture Jennifer King said she was delighted with the turnout and had received excellent feedback about the event. “Cantabrians are very keen to have interesting things to do and it was great to see people enjoying themselves and making the most of the great weather.” Ms King said the performers from China, who took part in the festival, were thrilled by the reception they received from the crowd. Kuniko Iio, 37, of Hornby, who attended the festival on Sunday evening, said the huge range of Asian food on

offer was a highlight for her and she felt that Hagley Park was a better venue than Victoria Park. “The food was delicious and it was interesting to try different dishes. I also really enjoyed watching the dragon dance. “The location was much better, too, since everything was spread out and there was more space to see the lanterns.” Ms King said the festival will continue to be held at the current site at the Carlton Corner end of Hagley Park. “The council has agreed to continue the festival on this site, so next year we will increase the number of lanterns around the park.” Seen among the lights were…


People adjusting to digital TV NEW Zealand will start going digital in seven months and 83 per cent of households are ready for it, with an increase of four per cent compared to the previous quarter. The transition from analogue to digital television begins on September 30 when Hawke’s Bay and the West Coast of the South Island go digital. The rest of the country will go digital in stages over 2013, with the Upper North Island the last to make the switch on November 30, 2013. The West Coast and Waikato regions have the highest proportion of households currently watching digital television at 92 per cent, whilst across Canterbury the conversion rate is 77 per cent. The figures, taken from a Colmar Brunton survey, also showed that of homes yet to go digital, 19 per cent said they were very likely to do so in the next six months.

Wearable flowers return to show Caught on canvas: Gill Hay’s feelings on the earthquake are expressed in her painting.

‘Land Force’ at Little River



 My books. My stationery. My store.

What next?: Internationally renowned costume and fabric artist Jenny Gillies has joined forces with Treetech to present A Wonderland of Wearable Flowers at next month’s Ellerslie International Flower Show. Ms Gillies, who wowed crowds at the 2009 show with her Wearable Weeds floral artwear collection, said she was excited about exhibiting in Christchurch for the first time in two years. “For the last three years, I have spent a lot of time working on big shows for the Royal Adelaide Show. It will be fantastic to be back showing my works of art in my home town.” Ms Gillies said she hoped visitors would enjoy viewing her 50 garments, which would be displayed in a wonderland of trees. “It will be quite spectacular, with the costumes exhibited in a landscape of trees and shrubs. Visitors will be able to experience the magic of these floral works of art up close.” Photo: Neil Macbeth

book release

Assassin’s Creed - Revelations by Oliver Bowden Older, wiser and more deadly than ever, master assassin Ezio Auditore embarks on an epic journey to find the lost library of Altair – a library that may hold the key to defeating the Templars for ever. However, a shocking discovery awaits him. The library holds not only hidden knowledge but also the most unsettling secret the world has ever known; a secret the Templars hope to use to control humankind’s destiny. Walking in the footsteps of his predecessor, Altair, Ezio must defeat the Templars for the final time. For the stakes have never been higher, and what started as a pilgrimage has become a race against time…

THE Little River Gallery’s new exhibition Land Force by Gill Hay opens this Saturday and runs until March 14. The exhibition comprises three large works and a series of smaller pieces. The medium is charcoal, acrylic and oil and the work is on unstretched canvas. “The force of what happened last year and the power of the land affected us all. The repercussions pervade life and these paintings are my reaction to the hills that surround my Lyttelton home and the power they have,” Ms Hay said. “I made a conscious decision to go back to basics and just draw this land using a monochromatic palette. “Included is a part of a painting that was damaged and this became my departure point for this show. On a purely practical level, every time I started painting on stretched canvas at my easel, there was another shake and the painting would fall and rip. “So I just took pieces of canvas pinning them straight on the walls where they couldn't fall off and began.”

Quake exhibition ‘evocative’ CHRISTCHURCH artist Julia Morison’s exhibition Meet me on the other side at Christchurch Art Gallery, which opened last week, is a bold response by the artist to the Canterbury earthquakes. Senior curator Justin Paton said Morison’s exhibition is “an evocative response to the earthquake of February 22, 2011.” Originally shown in Auckland, the exhibition has been brought back to Christchurch for a six-week showing in a first-floor space at NG boutique gallery and design studio. The exhibition is part of the gallery’s Outer Spaces programme of exhibitions, which is dedicated to taking art to the public while its own doors are closed and its collections are in safe storage. Meet me on the other side will be at NG, 212 Madras Street until March 25.

Worth Fighting For Love, Loss and Moving Forward by Lisa Niemi Swayze Wait a minute…there. I made it to the next moment. And that’s how you get through a bad moment of grief. You do it one at a time. Lisa Niemi and Patrick Swayze were married for thirty-four years. Their marriage strained under the pressures that many do, but through all of its ups and downs, it was a uniquely passionate and creative partnership. Worth Fighting For is a remarkably candid look at what it means to lose a partner – how to care for him or her, how to make it through each day without losing your sanity, and how to move forward in the second half of your life when the person you spent the first half with is gone. This book is both a tribute to a marriage and a celebration of the healing power that each day holds, even in the most difficult of circumstances.

Staying positive even after life-changing injuries Tom Doudney

LIFE and sport must go on for two Shirley teenagers who received life-changing rugby injuries within 12 months of each other. Shirley Boys’ High School student Cody Everson became a paraplegic after a tackle went wrong while he was playing for Shirley against Christ’s College, while former Shirley student Scott Martlew, 19, lost his left leg to the flesh-eating disease nectrotising fasciitis in 2010. The disease developed from a bruise on his leg sustained while playing for Shirley against Lincoln High School in a Crusaders curtain-raiser game in May that year. Both boys, who had been all-round sporting types, have now found new sporting challenges

this year for the first time since his accident, has decided to take up wheelchair rugby after talking to other patients at Burwood Hospital’s spinal unit. “I’ve been talking to a lot of people who play and I’ve got a training sometime in the next week or so, which will be sweet.” Attending school in a wheelchair had many challenges, including getting up earlier, tiredness in class, transport, and not being able to write his own notes, but he continues to receive great support from family and friends. Shirley Boys’ High School rugby administrator John Fox was impressed with how well Scott and Cody had adjusted to life after their accidents. “They’ve just got this amazing attitude; they’re so positive about things.”

Scott is set to compete in two major canoeing competitions within the next few weeks, first in the canoe sprint national championships in Rotorua this weekend, then with the New Zealand team for para-canoe section of the Oceania Canoe Sprint Continental Championships in Sydney next month. Scott is no stranger to canoeing success, having been part of the four-man South Brighton team, which won a gold and a silver medal in the surf canoe event of Surf Life Saving’s 2011 New Zealand championships. He said he felt he had adjusted to life pretty well since his accident and was looking forward to continuing his studies in quantity surveying this year. Meanwhile, Cody, who returned to school
