ABOUT 35,000 people gave the All Blacks a rousing Canterbury welcome when the World Cup came to town yesterday. The All Blacks rode through the crowd like a victorious army, the Webb Ellis Cup held high, the spoils of victory for a tough World Cup campaign. Coach Steve Hansen told the crowd: “To all supporters, thanks for getting up at 4am, especially with some of you getting home around that time. I know the Government changed the alcohol bill so the pubs could stay open so I hope you made the most of it.” Captain Richie McCaw said: “On behalf of everyone we’re just so proud we could do the job. I’m biased I know but to come down here and see this is great. One thing I know we’re hugely proud of is that we can call ourselves world champions for the next four years.” Among the crowd was Nick Te Puni who set up well before the parade, intent on sharing a fish ‘n chip meal with sons Ethan and Taylor. “You don’t get any more Kiwi than this,” he said. “This is the first time anyone’s won the Rugby World Cup back to back, so it’ll never happen again, and we’re here to help celebrate that victory.” A cluster of girls from St Margaret’s College were more blunt. “We’re scouting future husbands!” A large group of Japanese students studying at Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology said it was important to help celebrate such an important victory. They also pointed out Japan’s win over South Africa. Halswell resident Helen Groenendal brought along one of the youngest fans of the day, seven-month-old daughter Imogen. “Imogen only managed to see the second half of the final but she has seen her fair share of rugby over the tournament,” she said. Mrs Groenendal said she was making the most of being on maternity leave by coming to the parade.

180 council jobs cut By Gabrielle Stuart

ONE HUNDRED and eighty city council staff were told yesterday that their jobs would be going. Some will be able to apply for 134 new roles which have been created, but others will lose their jobs. Front line staff have not been affected by the job cuts, but five of the top executives have had their roles cut. The restructure is expected to save $3.8 million per year, although the city council has not revealed how much has been budgeted for redundancy payments. It spent almost $200,000 on research and advice on the restructure from PricewaterhouseCoopers. Chief executive Karleen Edwards (right) said the goal of the restructure was not to save money, but to make the city council more efficient and accessible. “On their own, these changes will help the council become more community-focused and better able to respond to the needs of residents. In addition, we will also

Under the initial proposal, 60 jobs were set to go. Under the final plan, there will be 46 fewer jobs. The reporting and analytics team was initially expected to be cut, but during the feedback process it argued the work it did could not be done by other teams. Under the final plan, the team has been kept. The number of operational groups, which oversee each part of the city council work, has also risen from five in the proposal to six.

THE CITY council is almost $4m short of the $36.8m it needs for the first stage of the Nga Puna Wai combined sports hub. But it hopes to get the extra funding before the end of the year through a Sport New Zealand community grant. The hub will provide a base for sports clubs across the city, with an athletics track, sports fields,

tennis courts and hockey turfs. If the money is found and the city council gives the go-ahead, construction could start in July next year. The first stage is hoped to be complete by November 2017. The city council has put $26.7m toward it, while sports groups have contributed $5.15m and Sport New Zealand $1m. The hub is estimated to cost

$670,000 a year to run, and a decision has not yet been made about who will manage it. The city council is looking at creating a trust to run it, which could involve representatives from sports groups involved as well as the city council. It has set aside a maximum of $536,000 a year to run the hub, but the costs are expected to come down.

A BAN on smoking outside bars and restaurants could be trialled next year. But the policy is likely to be voluntary, so individual cafes and restaurants could decide if they wanted to take part. A city council committee decided yesterday to support the Smokefree Canterbury initiative, which is likely to be trialled next year. The city council looked at banning smoking outside bars and restaurants earlier this year, when it made bus stops and the entrances to public buildings smoke-free. But it put off making a decision because creating a policy which affected private leases would be too complicated. Cr Jamie Gough said hospitality businesses were very varied, so a ban might make sense at a cafe aimed at families but might not work at a CBD bar. “Having a cigarette with a beer in a courtyard is not the crime of the century, especially when

you are probably not going to encourage these places as a family environment anyway,” he said. But he supported the policy so long as it was voluntary, saying it was a step in the right direction. Cr Tim Scandrett raised concerns the city council could be going a step too far by supporting the policy. He said making parks and public buildings smoke-free made sense because they were city council managed, but bars and restaurants were a different story. But Smokefree Canterbury manager Martin Witt said some outdoor areas were on land leased from the city council, so its support was needed. He said a range of hospitality businesses across the city had been surveyed about their views on a policy. He said 60 per cent supported a voluntary policy, while 51 per cent believed regulation was needed. Regulation could be looked at in the future if the voluntary policy proved successful, he said.

Boost for fighting racism By Gabrielle Stuart

A CITY council committee decided yesterday to put more resources toward fighting racism in Christchurch. It said there had been a lot of talk in the past but not enough action, and it hoped more staff involvement would mean things changed. A working party has been meeting since July to look at cultural problems in Christchurch and how to improve them. It includes city councillors, city council staff and representatives from cultural groups across the city. Party chairman Jimmy Chen

said the issues facing migrants in Christchurch included racism, employment, housing, social isolation, access to information and services, civic participation and insufficient understanding of the Treaty of Waitangi and cultural issues. The working party is tasked with coming up with ways to combat the problems, which it will need to present to the city council before June next year. Cr Chen said they could include better education for both Cantabrians and migrants, better ways to access or deliver information, or more celebration of different cultures within the city.

Intrepid Journeys in Canterbury

Stunning walks around Mt Cook REACHING THE summit of Mt Cook itself is a challenge even for the most experienced mountaineers. But although the peak may be out of reach for most of us, there are plenty of walks around the mountain which are much more accessible. They range from 30min walks to good viewing spots, to two or three hour hikes around the forests, scrub lands, lakes and glaciers around the foot of the mountains. From Christchurch, it will take about 4h 30min to drive to Mt Cook village. Walks in the area include the 3h return Hooker Valley Track, which runs from the DOC visitor centre. It passes the Alpine Memorial Viewpoint, runs across three swing bridges and ends at the glacier lake, where you can get views of Mt Cook, Hooker Glacier and the Southern Alps. The 2h Kea Point Track also starts at the DOC centre, and runs past the Mueller Glacier. And if you’re after a shorter track, the 30min Glencoe Walk starts behind the Hermitage Hotel, and winds through totara trees up to a look out point with a view over the village and the mountains. There are several cafes and food options in the village, and there is also a petrol station there, but it isn’t always staffed, so you may need a credit card to use the self-service.

A LOOK INSIDE: BIKER GANGS

Another generation of Christchurch has a long history of motor-cycle gangs. But the scene is changing with international gangs here, and the ending of the city’s originals – the Epitaph Riders. Grant Bryant reports

IN THE early days Christchurch motor-cycle gangs were largely homegrown or DIY – groups of young guys organised clubs, set up pads and donned patches astride big loud British or American motor-cycles. The Epitaph Riders were first to set up in 1969. They didn’t have the expansion focus of other global and northern gangs. They had links to other gangs but made Christchurch their home. Five years later the city would get a taste of bikie violence when war erupted between them and the Devils Henchmen in 1974, sparking stabbings, shootings, and a bombing that resulted in one death. Fast forward 41 years and the Epitaph Riders have finally written their own epitaph, winding up with a patch burning ceremony. Others too have changed significantly or disappeared. The Harris Gang absorbed into the Timaru and Invercargill-based Road Knights, but they too now appear to have gone, and been absorbed into the Head Hunters, an Auckland-based motor-cycle gang which is firmly entrenched in the city. Highway 61 had three Christchurch chapters in the mid-90s, and were arch enemies of the Harris Gang. A shooting at a Waltham periodic detention centre signalled allout war, and led to a major police operation called Persil which effectively took the win out of the gang’s sails. That peace did not last long in Christchurch. Senior Highway

NEW BREED: The Christchurch Bandidos chapter is part of the new wave of the city’s changing biker gang landscape. 61 members were involved in the murder of a Black Power member in 2000. The jailing of the offenders weakened the 61’s power base and while still about the gang has nowhere near the presence and mana it once had. Other gangs like the Devils Henchmen and Templeton Riders too have faded into obscurity. But that doesn’t mean the gang members themselves have. The Hells Angels have moved into Christchurch with a distinctive Devils Henchmen influence. Other international gangs like The Bandidos and Rebels which have chapters in Christchurch, have recruited from other gangs in the city. Canterbury University criminologist Greg Newbold (right) holds the view that Christchurch’s homegrown biker gangs were largely harmless and stuck to their own agenda. “Apart from inter-club rivalries, of which there were lots, these guys didn’t cause a lot of public harm. Of course there were incidents

where members of the public got caught up in confrontations, but this was pretty rare,” he said. “The old Christchurch MCs never got into meth dealing, and really became traditional old men as opposed to criminal gangs. These guys never built up the finances to hire big lawyers when police pressure really mounted in the last 10 years and as a result they drifted apart and eventually broke up.” Also, ageing members didn’t actively recruit new blood – a key to ensuring continuum. In the early-2000s methamphetamine hit the streets, ushering in a lucrative black economy giving gangs the opportunity to tighten their grip on the meth trade. The Bandidos and Rebels now have roots in Christchurch. They are part of the upper echelon of the international biker gang scene – widely regarded to be bankrolled by drug dealing, particularly meth manufacture and distribution. Rock Machine, a biker gang formed in Canada made moves to establish a Christchurch chapter, but failed amongst the mix of larger more well-known companies.

Added to the brew is the emerging presence of the Head Hunters. Formed in Auckland in the late-60s the gang forged a fearsome reputation as staunch unrepentant outlaws fully willing to use their muscle to dominate whatever area they chose to

operate in. The FBI classifies the Bandidos, Rebels and Hells Angles as “organisations whose members use their motor-cycle clubs as conduits for criminal enterprises” including drug trafficking, prostitution and human trafficking.

motor-cycle gangs

RAID: Police raid the Highway 61s in Linwood, 1990. It may be a far stretch to imagine the tentacles of human trafficking reaching into Christchurch, but police around the world who have ignored the international sway of large biker gangs have regretted not acknowledging it sooner. Biker wars which erupted in Scandinavia in the 1990s left 12 dead and 96 injured, and stemmed from Hells Angels and Bandidos squaring off for domination of the drug trade. The Bandidos were also a key protagonist in the gang shoot-out that left nine dead in Waco, Texas, in May this year. The one thing that united both the smaller homegrown motor-cycle clubs and larger outlaw gangs was brotherhood and a sense of belonging. Not all members of the international biker clubs were criminals, but key human drivers such as power, money and sex make it an easy jump, Prof Newbold said. “Their raison d’être is brotherhood, and being in a big club brings with it power and prestige, which attracts lots of young women. In some cases these clubs have built up significant finances, and that brings with it the chance

to make a lot more through nonlegal means.” In 1996 the daughter of New Zealand First MP Ron Mark witnessed a drive-by shooting between Epitaph Riders and Road Knights members on Lincoln Rd, in which an innocent woman was shot through her car window. A year later Mr Mark mentioned the incident in Parliament during the second reading of a bill on witness anonymity, perhaps best summing up the grip Christchurch’s homegrown biker gangs had on the city. “Christchurch has been virtually in a state of siege for a decade; not just this year, not just last year, not just when there was a shooting in downtown Christchurch streets, in Addington, but for 10, 15, and 20 years. It has touched almost everybody in Christchurch city in some way, shape, or form. It has touched me personally. It has touched my children personally. It has touched the children of my friends and the friends of my children,” Parliamentary records state. “My daughter... [was] a witness to a drive-by shooting in which a woman, an innocent mother, was shot through the window of her car by a gangster screaming

past and trying to take a pot-shot at an opposing gang member. My daughter was sitting in a car beside that car. But for 0.5 of a second either way, my daughter or her boyfriend could quite easily have been the person shot.” As opposed to the homegrown bikers, continuum is a vital ingredient to the international MCs, and Christchurch’s sudden growth spurt has incorporated elements of the ‘patch-over’ where smaller clubs are absorbed into bigger ones.

▌READER’S ▌ LETTER Readers react to Wendy’s bid for a liquor licence application at its Hornby outlet

Infrastructure repairs nearing completion By Gabrielle Stuart

REPAIRS TO earthquake-damaged infrastructure in the central city is almost complete. The Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team has finished 97 per cent of its work within the four avenues. The work ranged from kilometres of underground pipe repairs to completely rebuilding the Triumphal Arch and Bridge of Remembrance. SCIRT executive general manager Ian Campbell said it was a huge programme of work. About 80 per cent of the pipes in the central city were made of clay and were extensively damaged in the earthquakes.

Co-ordination was another problem, as the Government, the city council and network providers all had to work on top of one another. Completing the work as quickly as possible while keeping roads open and clear access to businesses was another challenge, he said. “Our work has now enabled the vertical rebuild to commence with confidence. I’m proud of our achievement,” he said. The final work within the four avenues is in parts of the east and south sides of the central city. Some roads are still to be repaired but fall under the An Accessible City plan and the work

SCIRT central city rebuild and repair work included • 50km of wastewater pipe • 15 bridges, including eight major repairs • 12km of storm water pipe • 9 pump stations • 6km of fresh water pipe • Triumphal Arch and Bridge of Remembrance • $123 million total projected spend is being managed by the city council. Across the whole city, more than 80 per cent of SCIRT work has been completed.

• Racism is rife in Christchurch. I could give countless examples. But the one which upset me the most, was the case of a young Ethiopian lad who was cycling along the road. A car full of hoons was following him, screaming rac-

ist taunts. Then the car knocked him off his bicycle and sped off. Luckily he wasn’t injured. He got up and walked away, crying. I called after him, to make sure he was okay. Even I was upset. – Peter Banens

Bev Carter

Dan’s proud mother Dan Carter’s mum Bev Carter wasn’t at the victory parade yesterday – after returning this week from the final, she didn’t want to take any more time off her work teaching at Springston School. She spoke to Gabrielle Stuart about the proud moments, broken windows and her fears and hopes for her son. Watching the final was incredibly nerve-wracking even for us at home, so I can’t imagine what it must have been like there for you! It was an amazing atmosphere at Twickenham. There were 80,000 plus people there all in the mood, and the English put on a great display with the fireworks. It was a really lively atmosphere in the fan zone. But it was nerve-wracking, and a bit emotional too thinking it was Dan’s last game. How do you handle the nerves when you’re watching? When Daniel’s kicking and when it’s tense I just don’t look. I can’t. I sit and mediate instead. I just think this for the team, willing the ball to go over. It looked like Dan was doing a bit of that himself. That was the first time I have seen him that wound up. Usually he wouldn’t do that, begging the ball to go over. But in that game he was playing with all his heart. Take me right back – what was Dan like as a kid? He loved the outdoors and he would be outside any moment he could get. He was always pretty laid back, and he always helped others in need, like his classmates if they needed a hand. It’s going back a long way, but he won a citizenship award for caring for others when he was at school.

Did he always want to be a rugby player even when he was really young, or did he have other ambitions? It was a toss up between rugby and cricket. He was passionate about both and good at both but rugby won in the end. Was there a moment he had to make a choice? No, he had to give up cricket because he was getting stress fractures in his back, because he was a fast bowler. So no, it was not really a choice. But rugby was always his greatest passion. What did he get in the most trouble for as a boy? I know you’ve talked before about the numbers of windows he broke trying to kick balls over the house. He did break a few, but he didn’t really get in trouble for doing that, because it’s one of those things you’ve got to expect when you’ve got rugby balls and cricket balls flying everywhere. But he didn’t used to get in much trouble at all. So he was a good boy? He always was. It must be strange to see him with his own boys now. What’s he like as a dad? Well he is away a lot, which is hard for him, but Honor is a great mum for the boys. And when he’s home

he’s always out with them or playing with them. Marco’s good with a ball so he spends a lot of time out with him. Do you have to remind him to phone home? No, he will ring every now and then, and we quite often do the Skype thing too when he’s away. So obviously you’re more than just Dan’s mum, so tell me a bit about you – were you Canterbury born and bred? Yes, I was brought up in Southbridge, on a farm. I went away to Teacher’s College and I taught for a while in Gore, but I came back and got married here. How did you meet Neville? It was a blind date. They don’t always end well. Well, this one did. It must have been very strange for the family, to see him develop such a high profile, and deal with all the pressure and all the media coverage. It must be pretty hard sometimes. It was, and it still is strange really. I don’t like to think about it too much. But for everyone here he’s still the boy next door, and he’s still very grounded. I think that’s part of why he enjoys coming back home so much. He never gets too big for his boots, and if he tried we wouldn’t let him. Are you going to be able to be there for the victory parade this week? No, I’m working. I’ve just had a lot of time off work, so I’m not going to take more off even to go to the parade. But my husband, Neville, will be there to see him. And I’ll go into town after work to see him. Dan’s obviously working on his autobiography at the moment – has he let you have a sneak peak? He has, and we’ve talked a bit about it, but I think it’s changed a bit since he got us to read some of it. Did you give him any advice? Well, we put our two pennies’ worth in, but I don’t know if he’ll listen to any of it. But writing the book was something he felt needed to do, just to show another side of him. He’s pretty well known for his work ethic. Do you ever need to tell him off for

TRIUMPH: Dan Carter with mum Bev, dad Neville and sister Sarah, who were all there to cheer him on at the Rugby World Cup final in Twickenham. Below: Dan’s passion for rugby started early, and he was dedicated to his first rugby team, the Southbridge Midgets.

working too hard? No! He is a very hard worker, but he is good at managing that with his family and time off. As a mum, it must be very hard to see him play such a physical sport, when there’s always the potential he could be badly injured. Oh yes, it always has been, right since he was a little boy. Seeing him get injured has always been one of the hardest things about it. Does that mean you’ll be glad to see him retire? I will be, and I’m sure it will happen very soon. He’s still got plenty of years ahead of him, so what do you think he might do with them? I think he wants to try many different things and he has many different options, but what he does will be up to him and he’s got a lot of time to decide. What would you like to see him do in the future? Well, it really is up to him. But he has always been close to his family, so he loves coming

home when he can. But with his rugby he often missed out on a lot of family things, and I know he would have loved to do more. But he always knew his goals, and he put in a lot of very hard work. There was a bit of natural skill too, but mostly a huge amount of hard work. Whatever he does I’m proud of him. I imagine you’ve had plenty of proud moments, and those kicks in the final must have been up there – but what do you think would have been your proudest moment as Dan’s mum? Probably when in his speeches he acknowledged it was not just him, it’s the team, and that it doesn’t just take one person. That made me very proud. And I am proud of all the time he takes to interact with his supporters. That was going on all night there, and his composure with his fans was really good to see. And of course his performance on the field. He is the kind of person who works so hard toward his goals. All those things make me proud.

Speechless in Montreal BONJOUR from Montreal! It’s week three of our holiday now – and we’ve gone from smalltown America to a rather large Canadian city. Goodbye fall pumpkins, Dunkin Donuts and small country corner-stores – hello skyscrapers, subways and department stores, or as I said . . . bonjour. Yep. We’re in French Canada now, which means everyone here speaks . . . French. I was grossly under-prepared for this. But that’s okay on two levels – one, because most people will respond in English if you just ask: Parlez-vous anglais? Also, I know how to say ‘un croissant chocolat,’ and I recognise ‘solde’ as ‘sale’ in shop windows. So really, I’m sorted. The change of pace here has been incredible. We’re staying in the central city, where impeccably-kept chapels from the 1600s are mingled with modern highrises and busy malls. It’s a real melting pot of races and cultures, all blended in this one big crazy city. Impeccably-dressed professionals stream along the pavements every morning, cramming the subways, filing off to their places of work. Pre-schoolers are harnessed in a line, a little walking bus, with a leash (not unlike the dog kind) held by their teachers. The little kiddies are wide-eyed and smiley, singing silly songs. It’s adorable.

BEAUTIFUL BASILICA: You can see why the Notre-Dame left us speechless. PHOTO: APRIL MCLENNAN Homeless people jangle coin tins at the street corners. Uni students fill the cafes, headphones on, laptops open. A man walks his cat at a nearby park every day. He says it stops Bennie (the Bengal) chewing the furniture. Somehow all these different people mingle, and it all works. It’s one of the safest cities in

the world. You can walk down to Burger King at 11 o’clock at night, and not feel like you’re going to get mugged (I tested the theory multiple times, just to be sure). And there’s so much to do. We’ve been shopping at the department stores, eating at the foodie spots, doing all the touristy things. We’ve been to watch an ice

hockey game at the local uni – it was like a giant game of ‘smashedem bro’ so of course, I loved it. But my absolute favourite part of our stay here has to be the old town. Some parts are more than 400-years-old, with authentic cobble-stone streets, stone columns and beautifully built old buildings. I love looking at the intricate stonework, carved columns and stained-glass windows and just thinking: Wow. I’m really pleased we’ve moved on to tilt-slab. Anyways, it was in this beautiful area that we came across the Notre-Dame Basilica. The outside was formidable. But upon stepping inside I, and I believe my whole family, were rendered speechless (this is quite an uncommon occurrence). It was stunning. Everywhere we looked there were oil paintings, sculptures, painted and gilded woodwork. Many others shuffled quietly through, the high ceilings and endless anterooms absorbing the noise. It was very peaceful. We quietly snapped photos, while the patron saints looked on. For minutes even we were quiet. And if a family of six is ever quiet, it must be a miracle.

Passers-by unable to save elderly man in crash By Tom Doudney

PASSERS-BY tried desperately to revive an elderly man who died after crashing his car into a water race near Weedons this morning. The crash happened on Robinsons Rd at about 11am. The Rolleston man, in his 80s, managed to climb out of the car and call his daughter before going into cardiac arrest and collapsing a short time later on the roadside. A contractor who was first on the scene attempted mouth to mouth resuscitation but the man could not be revived. The man’s daughter arrived at the scene to find her father had died. Senior Sergeant Pete Stills praised the efforts of the contractor and others who stopped to lend assistance. “We really appreciate their efforts and it reinforces what good people are out there trying to do good things for other human beings.” The cause of the crash is yet to be determined but there were no indications that another vehicle was involved. Senior Sergeant Stills said the man had lost control of the car, driven on to the grass verge and into a farm fence before the vehicle ended up on its side in the water race.

EQC UPDATE

KEEPING YOU INFORMED | OCTOBER 2015 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS How does a property qualify as having ILV land damage? To qualify for ILV land damage, a property must meet engineering criteria which confirms the insured land does not only have material vulnerability to liquefaction damage after the Canterbury earthquakes but the vulnerability has also materially increased as a result of ground surface subsidence of the land caused by the Canterbury earthquakes. In addition, the increase in liquefaction vulnerability must have caused a reduction in the market value of the property.

Customers get certainty on ILV land damage Most of the 8,500 green zone customers who last year received a letter from EQC that their property potentially has Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV) land damage will be contacted in the next two months to confirm whether or not this is the case. “The first qualification packs have gone out this week and we expect to give certainty to all affected customers by early next year at the latest”, EQC Head of Canterbury Land, Keith Land says. Settling claims for ILV land damage is a world first and has involved a significant amount of geotechnical research and engineering assessments by EQC’s engineers Tonkin and Taylor. “We acknowledge it’s taken time to get to this stage and we would like to thank our customers for their patience. We’re confident all the work that has been done to date has contributed to a robust assessment process which should give homeowners confidence that all properties have been assessed fairly and consistently,” Mr Land says. The engineering assessment methodology, which was developed by Tonkin and Taylor, was peer reviewed by an independent expert review panel, comprising world-leading liquefaction researchers. EQC will use a two-stage approach to advise customers what EQC’s ILV settlement decision is for their property. This reflects feedback received from customers who said they want to hear from EQC as soon as relevant information about their properties becomes available. “The next stage of the process will be to send those customers whose properties do qualify a settlement pack, with detailed information on the

basis of the settlement and payment amount. The settlement packs will be sent out throughout 2016,” Mr Land says. EQC will cash settle ILV land damage and not manage the repair of ILV land, which is in line with how EQC has settled claims for other types of land damage caused by the Canterbury earthquakes. Cash settlements for ILV land damage will be based on one of two approaches: cost of repair or the reduction in market value of the property due to ILV land damage, also called Diminution of Value (DOV). “How exactly it’s going to look in terms of the settlement approaches and the amount for each of the qualifying properties is something we are working through now,” Mr Land says. Later this year and early next year EQC is holding a number of community meetings around Christchurch for homeowners who receive confirmation from EQC about whether or not their property has ILV land damage. “We want customers to have an opportunity to hear from us and our engineering advisers Tonkin and Taylor face-to-face, so that they can get a good understanding of what‘s been involved in making the qualification decision for their property,” Mr Land says. More information about the meetings and ILV land damage in general, including a comprehensive list of questions and answers, can be found on the EQC website at www.eqc.govt.nz/ILV.

COMMUNITY MEETINGS ON ILV LAND DAMAGE EQC is holding community meetings for homeowners who have been advised whether or not their property qualifies for Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV) land damage.

In the Know Hub The Hub is a community-led initiative which brings various earthquake recovery agencies and support services together in one place. It’s located at the Eastgate Shopping Centre (next to the foodcourt) and is open Monday to Wednesday, 9am-6pm and Thursday, 9am-8pm At the Hub you can also talk to an EQC representative. To discuss your specific claim, you need to book first by calling 0800 326 243. For more information on the Hub see www.intheknow.org.nz

It is possible a property experienced significant liquefaction induced damage as a result of the earthquakes but will not qualify for ILV land damage. A property will only qualify for ILV where subsidence to the insured land has caused it to become materially more vulnerable to liquefaction. If the insured land was already prone to liquefaction before the earthquake and the vulnerability has not materially changed, it won’t qualify. What information was used for engineering assessments of a property? The qualification decisions are based on a number of sources of information, such as ground surface levels derived from aerial surveys (LiDAR), groundwater levels monitored through around 1,000 wells, and soil characteristics data from extensive geotechnical investigations involving 18,000 Cone Penetrometer Tests (CPTs), 4,000 boreholes, and 6,000 laboratory tests. How will you decide which properties will have their settlement based on DOV or on repair cost? EQC’s general preference is to settle ILV claims based on the repair cost together with any DOV of the insured land that is not remediated by the repair methodology. In general, EQC will adopt a repair methodology that remediates the land damage under and immediately around the house in line with the MBIE Guidance. This means there will be an area of the insured land that will not be remediated so the settlement may include an amount to reflect any DOV for this area. The nature of ILV land damage means that a repair methodology may not be technically feasible; able to be lawfully undertaken; or able to be undertaken, given the high costs and practicality of making the repairs. In these circumstances, EQC will settle the ILV land damage based on DOV. Where a property with ILV land damage has been sold since the earthquakes, the settlement will also be based on DOV. EQC may settle ILV land damage based on the repair costs where a repair methodology is available and the customer intends to undertake the repair of the land within a reasonable period of time using that methodology. When determining whether there is a repair methodology for a particular property, EQC will consider several factors, including whether it would be recommended by a prudent engineering advisor and whether it could be practically carried out on the property. The ILV Policy outlines how EQC will decide between repair or DOV settlement for a property and a copy of the Policy can be found on EQC website at www.eqc.govt.nz/ILV.

Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV) land damage – what it is and how a property qualifies for it A seminar for homeowners who last year heard from EQC that their property potentially has ILV land damage and who will receive confirmation late this year or early next year whether or not they have this type of land damage. This seminar will cover what ILV land damage is, how a property qualifies for this type of land damage that has never before in the world been recognised as insured damage, and next steps for qualifying properties. Keith Land, EQC Head of Canterbury Land, and EQC’s engineers Tonkin+Taylor will present.

Your Garden

Vintage

TREASURES A nostalgic Diana Noonan finds the beauty in classic blooms THE OTHER day, I found myself frustrated at being unable to locate the site of a derelict cottage my siblings and I had played beside as children. As I wandered up and down the deserted farm road, it seemed that the elements and time had combined to reclaim the old tumble-down building and that I was destined never to find its remains. But just as I was about to give up my search, I noticed, peeping through the short, sheep-cropped grass, some bright spots of colour. They were wild primroses, the very same flowers that we had picked as children to take back to my mother, and they were still blooming in what were the remnants of the old cottage garden. In the same way that gnarled macrocarpa trees mark out the spots where colonial homes once stood, hardy, vintage flowers stand as signposts of gardens now forgotten. As a self-sufficient gardener for whom edible beds, by necessity, take priority, I value flowers that look after themselves and that bloom, year after year, with little or no attention. If you are a time-pressed gardener, who longs for something pretty in a bed you have little time to tend, seek out these vintage treasures for yourself. They will reward you in so many ways and, who knows, may still be blooming when your great grandchildren come searching for them.

WILD PRIMROSE (Primula vulgaris)

WALLFLOWER

HEART’S EASE

Fragrant wallflowers are a relative of the cabbage (brassica) family and although they are available in a range of colours, including lavender, pink and ivory-white, it is inevitably the bronze and yellow blooms that you will find in forgotten gardens. This old-fashioned, hardy cottage plant appreciates a well-drained, moderately fertile and sunny home, but will also grow in poorer, dry soils, which no doubt explains why it is such a survivor. A species that includes annuals, biennials and perennials, it is usually grown as a biennial, as it tends to become woody after its first flowering. Lightly cutting back the growth on perennials after flowering can keep this to a minimum.

Known by the sweetest of names, including heart’s delight, tickle-myfancy, Jack-jump-up-and-kiss-me and love-in-idleness, heart’s ease simply refuses to be knocked back and continues to flower years after a garden has gone into recession. It even spills over and can often be found on the edge of nearby roadsides. This smart little flower protects itself from rain and dew by drooping its head in wet weather! Seed, which is available from Kings Seeds, can be sown in spring or summer in a fine mix. Keep it well-watered. The plants, when large enough to be transplanted, are tolerant of shade but enjoy full sun as well.

FORGET-ME-NOT Perhaps it is because it self-seeds so freely and is so content to grow in shady, damp, forgotten places, that we often overlook the fact that we can plant this old-fashioned treasure in our own gardens. Not only that, but we can enjoy it in shades of pink, white, as well as blue, and also in blue with yellow centres. As with all survivors, they are happy to grow in moderately fertile to poor soils and, although they will tolerate shade, full sun for part of the day will help them look their best. Sow the seeds of forget-me-nots in spring or early summer. If you become a fan of these little flowers, why not try your hand at some of our native Myosotis? The Chatham Island forget-me-not (Myosotidium hortensia) is the giant in the family and is said to enjoy ‘head in the sun, feet in the shade’.

Commonly known as the ‘wild English primrose’, this little, pale-yellow, delicately scented treasure is typically no more than 10cm high. A native of Europe, it grows best in moist, preferably welldrained soil, in light shade, and miraculously continues to bloom in pasture cropped by stock. It is perfectly suited to woodland gardens, where left to its own devices, it will happily naturalise. Several subspecies produce flowers in white, pink, red and purple. If you find these treasures growing in the wild, enjoy them, but resist picking the flowers or digging up clumps to take home. Instead, search them out from specialist nurseries. These primulas divide easily and before long you will have a colony of your own.

THAT’S ODD TWO TEENAGERS from Los Angeles are capturing everyone’s hearts after they bought 100 cheeseburgers for the homeless, just to make them smile. Aspiring actor Lance Stewart and best friend Adin Kolansky, both 19, spent nearly $200 on the kind-hearted gesture as well as another $100 on more snacks and water for any homeless men or women they came across. The 19-year-olds bought the burgers and then spent six hours handing them out to every homeless person they encountered. The friends grew up in New Jersey together and moved to Los Angeles earlier this year. Lance said: “We were just hoping that it would inspire other people to go out and help others as well.’’

Kia Sorento major player in SUV line-up AFTER A busy 2014 with the launch of new Soul and Pro_cee’d GT, along with Cerato, Optima and Sportage upgrades, this year has been a bit quieter for Kia New Zealand. However, one of Kia’s major players, the Sorento, has just entered a new generation, and while its shape and size is altered markedly, it is true to the concept which has earned it a great reputation in the sport utility market. The Sorento is a large, capable, seven-seat SUV which has enjoyed healthy sales in New Zealand. In its latest iteration it lands here from $49,990 to $61,990 in both two and four-wheel-drive forms, with petrol and diesel options within the sixmodel range. The test car was the range-topping diesel limited model which is equipped with a host of specification options such as full leather trim, satellite navigation, keyless entry and ignition and a host of other specification items. As before, the new Sorento has the option of a 2.2-litre four cylinder diesel engine, and it was that which was fitted to the evaluation car. It is the R-series unit which is shared with Hyundai, the two giant Korean conglomerates are heavily involved in a component sharing and research and development programme. Even though the R-series engine isn’t new, it has constantly been refined to the point where it can well be regarded as one of the automotive world’s great engines. It is strong, smooth and delivers with remarkable fuel usage figures. Kia rate the 2199cc unit with a 7.8-litre per 100km (36mpg) combined cycle rating, which fits well with the trip computer’s read out, it was constantly sitting at 9l/100km (31mpg) along with a 7l/100km (41mpg) instantaneous

KIA SORENTO: Seven seats and substantial internal space. figure at 100km/h, the rev counter pointing to a lazy 1750rpm at that speed. The engine is also listed with power and torque figures of 147kW and 441Nm respectively. Both are realised low in the rev band at 3800rpm and 1750rpm2750rpm, and with its delivery through a sixspeed conventional automatic transmission there is a solid flow of energy, all done in a whisper quiet and smooth manner.

SPECIFICATIONS Price: Kia Sorento, $61,990. Dimensions: Length,4780mm; width, 1890mm; height, 1690mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder transverse, four-wheel-drive, 2199cc, 147kW, 441Nm, sixspeed automatic. Performance: 0-100km/h, 9sec.

It needs to be a punchy engine, the Sorento now weighs in close to twotonne; it is a bulky model, but that translates well to internal space. Even the rear row of seats offers respectable leg and head room, although realistically it is a row for the younger generation simply because access there requires a bit of bending and folding. Nevertheless, it is typical of vehicles of this type and, while on that subject, if the rear rows of seats are folded forward a cavernous load area opens up – 1662-litres from 142-litres. The Sorento is a classic example of why SUVs and the Kia range have become so popular. It offers all of the advantages of a large station wagon, yet it moves with the simplicity and driveability of a vehicle nowhere near its bulk. I took the test car on my

FUNCTIONAL: The Kia Sorento is familyfriendly.

favourite cruising road – State Highway 72 below the Malvern Hills. It cruises the long straights with quiet motion and reacts well when the odd corner or two arrive. The Premium model sits on Korean-made Kumho tyres (235/55 x 19in), bearing in mind that lower grade models get 17in wheels, yet the ride quality doesn’t appear compromised, in the test car’s case comfort levels are high. Drive is sent through a high quality and sophisticated fully independent suspension front and rear. The rear axles are located by a multiple link system, while at both ends the spring and damper rates are set as a good all round compromise between ride quality and the firming need for the odd journey off road. It was raining on the day I went testing so I was hesitant about going off the seal as such. The prospect of a big clean-up afterwards wasn’t appealing, so I only tackled a short shingle road stretch to evaluate how grippy the four-wheel-drive system was. It is a permanently engaged system whereby the driver has no switchable control. And I can report that on the streaming roads the steering feels firm and the tyres tightly connected to the road, there is a lot of reassurance built into the system. The Sorento sits high, although you wouldn’t think so getting in and out, it’s quite car-like. But with 185mm of ground clearance you can feel confident when travelling cross country that it won’t hang up on undulations. Even though the global SUV market is still buoyant Kia doesn’t have its own way in the large vehicle segment; nevertheless, the third generation Sorento is a force to be reckoned with. And with so many options within the range its adaptability will impress.

Throw open the windows and doors and invite the sunshine in with a few important chores that will set you up for summer.

+GST

With a few hot days last month we are reminded that summer days are not far away. Now is the time to prepare our homes so by the time summer rolls around we can sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labour. Start indoors by throwing the windows and doors open to let in some fresh air. Clean the windows inside and out so you can admire the view across your garden. Replace your cosy winter flannel sheets and heavy duvet covers for lighter linens with a high thread-count and refresh your colour scheme with throws and scatter cushions in lighter, brighter hues for summery appeal. While you're in the bedroom, reorganise your wardrobe by packing away winter outfits to make room for summer dresses and sandals. Dry-cleaning woollen items – along with any cotton and synthetic fibres you store with them – will prevent moth damage. If you haven't aired your guest

bedroom since last year, this is a good opportunity to refresh this room as you have with the others to save the mad rush as Christmas draws near. Refresh bathrooms with new towels in a splash of vibrant colour, ventilate by throwing the windows open and add a plant beside the sink to filter the air. Look for plants with high purification levels like snake plants, spider plants, English ivy, and small-leafed rubber plants. The next room to attack is the kitchen. Empty out the freezer and, if you can temporarily store your goods elsewhere, defrost it completely. Throw out anything that has been in there over a year (less time for ground meat, chicken and leftovers), as frozen food loses flavour and texture over time, and this will make precious room for summer treats like ice cream and meat for the barbie. Ensure your fridge is in top working order by giving the condensing coils a thorough clean. With barbecue season

beckoning, make sure all the barbecue is clean and has a full gas tank. If you have a charcoal grill, it pays to invest in an inexpensive chimney starter to quickly and safely light the coals, as using lighter fluid can permeate the taste of your food. While you're uncovering the barbie from the dark depths of the garage, you can move the snow chains and skis to the back and make way for your gardening and summer entertaining gear so it's easily accessible. Dust off the outdoor furniture and organise your garage so when the next hot day arrives you'll be all set to grab what you need to hit the beach. Give patios a good scrub with a broom and hot soapy water or hire a water blaster from your local home centre to do the job. Before you know it, you'll be all set for summer!

At a show home you can ask questions, take notes and compare them to other builders’ presentations.

Show homes are the perfect way to get a good idea of pricing, discover what is good quality and value, learn about superior use of space, futureproofing, ongoing maintenance and long term returns.

Pride after crucial win By Jaimie Keay MAINLAND PRIDE know how important a win on Saturday against third-place WaiBop in the ASB Woman’s League is to their chances of finishing the regular season in top spot. Only three rounds remain including a home game next weekend against top of the table Northern before the playoffs, for Mainland to secure a spot to defend their 2014 title. Head coach Mike De Bono said getting the win away from home will be crucial. “If we get a result away it will put us in a handy position to make a finals berth, we have taken every game on its own merit and with a short season, every game to us is a cup final,” he said. De Bono said his side have had a good look at their opposition but the focus will be on their own game. “We are lucky we have had a lot of video footage available of them but we will be making sure we concentrate on what we can affect and our own processes to get the win,” he said. After last weekend’s 0-0 draw with Auckland, De Bono said a strong defensive effort will be key. “Last week against Auckland we tried a few things like players in different positions to get

something different but it didn’t eventuate so we will look to go back to a normal system. “Our focus is purely on us and keeping our defensive quality up. We have only conceded one goal so far and we want to keep that nature of our game at the forefront,” he said. Mainland have plenty of strike power up front with Aimee Phillips, Monique Barker and Mikayla Wiebliltz all featuring in the top goal scorers for the competition. Football Fern midfield Annalie Longo has provided good service to her strikers, however, De Bono said nothing short of a whole team performance will get the win for Mainland. “We have key players like Annalie who always leads from the front, but it is time for players to take the pressure off her and learn to play without her. If we can do that we will be a far better side,” he said. The team’s progression throughout the season and ability to adapt to the game plan has pleased De Bono.

FINDING THE BACK OF THE NET: Mainland Pride leading goal-scorer Aimee Phillips will be looking to continue her form when her side take on WaiBOP in Hamilton on Sunday. “We have not dropped a game “It is not uncommon for us to so far this season which was a change our shape a bit and they big goal of ours at the start of the have been able to adapt and have season, so we will be looking to progressed really well over time. Some of our young players are really continue this as we see out the season,” he said. starting to come through as well.
