The Sumner wedding everyone was invited to BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

HAPPY: Cornelia and Bill celebrating their wedding on Saturday that they invited the entire Sumner community to. (Right) – Satch the leonberger.

INSIDE:

Who to invite to a wedding can turn some couples into knots – but Cornelia Sears and Bill Cox solved that by inviting the entire community to their nuptials. The couple were married at their Nayland St home on Saturday after putting on the Sumner Community online noticeboard that everyone was invited. The only proviso was to bring some meat for the barbecue. The couple are wellknown in the community, having owned Endless Sumner DVD store and for their 63kg leonberger dog called Satch – who has his own Facebook page. About 100 people turned up – most of who had seen the online advertisement. They decided to get married eight days before

GREAT TURN OUT: The couple’s friends and Sumner residents who came along to help the pair celebrate their big day.

the wedding, so they had to organise it at “rocket speed.” But guests soon learned Saturday’s wedding was a simulation – with actor Stig Eldred as the vicar. The pair went and got officially

married at the registry office yesterday. They are heading home to the United States on Monday, but they wanted to get married in Sumner before they left. Cornelia, known as

Corny, said while unusual she could not imagine getting married any other way. “We’ve got no family here in Sumner but lots of whanau.” The pair met at the Smithsonian Institution in 1995 when Mr Cox was working as an archivist, and she was doing her PhD in history. They moved to New Zealand in 1997 and lived in Mt Pleasant for a year before settling in Sumner. “Sumner’s a magical place, it’s got the beach, it’s beautiful and it’s got a real sense of community,” Ms Sears said. Although they are moving back to Bellport in the US to look after Cornelia’s mother – it will not be the last time you see Bill, Corny and Satch. Their vows included returning to Sumner.

Delay in boy racer decision

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

A decision on whether to ban boy racers from Summit Rd will not be made until July. The Summit Road Protection Authority met last week to discuss the possibility of closing the road to boy racers. It comes after frequent crashes and vandalism along the road. Governors Bay residents say a closure would help with boy racer behaviour in the harbour because it would close off the cruising circuit. City council traffic engineer Andrew Hensley was meant to update members on his investigations around how to manage late night users of the road, and seek the views of members. However he was unable to attend. Summit Road Protection Authority member Paula Smith (inset) said the group agreed something needed to be done about the problem. She said it would be discussed at the group’s next meeting on July 25. “In the mean time we need to talk to the relevant community

LAND PURCHASE LIKELY The city council is looking at buying land on Nayland St, Sumner, so it could be used as secure off-street car parking. It would support the new library, community facility and museum which is going to be built on the corner of Wakefield Ave and Nayland St, and expected to open next year. The city council would not say what area of Nayland St it was looking at. The plan is part of the Sumner Village Masterplan which will see the upgrade of Marriner St West and Wakefield Ave, and the loss of 25 on-street car parks to make way for cycleways. NEW SCHOOL ON TRACK The new Lyttelton Primary School is on track to officially open from the beginning of term two, which begins on May 2. The school is the result of the merger of Lyttelton Main and West Schools, and is being built on the corner of Oxford St and Sumner Rd.

​Youth work vital in community Fuse programme coordinator Aaron Powley says it is important to have events and facilities for youth, to have a positive input in their lives I’m just coming up on my first year as a youth worker at Fuse out here in Sumner. I get to hang out with kids, play football, plan awesome community events and forge new relationships between the youth and myself and Fuse and the community. However that doesn’t mean youth work is always fun and games. We fill a very real need in terms of service to the community as well as in the lives of the youth we work with. It’s so important to have these sorts of events and facilities in a community, we need places outside of school for our youth to have positive input into their lives. We are also passionate about sharing our Christian values, and it’s message of hope with the community. The importance of these services to the youth and community as a whole can not be over stated – we provide an awesome area where young people can come and hang out and forge relationships with their peers and

SOAP BOX older youth workers. These relationships can be fundamental as youth get older and start to decide what they’re going to do or who they’re going to be. Having strong moral youth leaders in my early to mid teenage years was so incredibly valuable to myself then and also later in life. This is exactly the sort of thing Fuse does, it provides a place where youth are able to get away from school and other environments that can put an expectation on them to be something they might not want to be. Here they can just be themselves. It’s a place where so many awesome Sumner/Redcliffs parents trust us with their children and teenagers which is the biggest compliment we as a youth centre can receive. And in part, that is why there is so much importance in having community youth centres and events.

want all the containers and hire fences gone, so yes this is a good start.

Readers respond to a plan to try and use Sumner’s former Marine Tavern site, which is red-zoned, as a community space: Ali McLauchlan: I find it interesting reading in the Bay Harbour News on the front page, Redcliffs School wanting to go back to their site but the Education Minister is concerned about future disruptions and rock fall. Then I open up the paper and here is an article about a Sumner community group trying to secure the former Marine Tavern site for a community space. My question is, surely if the Redcliffs School site is unsafe,  why would anyone think that the former Marine Tavern site would be safer and suitable for a community space?? If you compare the two sites the school is so much further away from the cliff than the Marine Tavern site, plus the cliffs at the Marine site overhang, unlike Redcliffs.  I watch with interest to see how things pan out. A reader responds with what he would like to see at the site: Ron Williams: A reinforced double block wall to fence off the no-go area, with remainder of land used

A reader responds to a letter printed in last week’s Bay Harbour News about a bach having to be removed from Port Levy: for the weekend market, small concerts, barbecues for public use, appropriate landscaping; (paving, grass, gardens, trees, lighting, seating, tables,) etc etc. Unfortunately, because of the PC world we live in, landscaping must be tag proof and vandal proof. Last week Bay Harbour News asked its readers what they would like Sumner’s new community facility to be called: Paul Evans: Re. the invitation in Bay Harbour News to suggest a name for the new Sumner community facility, I’d like to suggest Te Pa O Matuku Takotako. I’ve taken the name from the original Maori name for Sumner Beach. A reader reacts to a plan to remove the shipping containers from Main Rd, Clifton: John Colvin: I don’t think I’ve spoken to a single person who doesn’t

Sarah Pritchett, Church Bay: Regarding Mary Wilkie’s Letter to the Editor, respected historians generally agree that the first peoples to settle in Canterbury were Waitaha, followed by Ngāti Māmoe and then Ngāi Tahu. Many of those who affiliate with Te Rūnanga o Koukourārata no doubt whakapapa back to Waitaha. When Pākeha settled on the Banks Peninsula they didn’t respect Māori land rights. To give but one example, in 1843 two brothers helped themselves to land in Purau, which was still occupied by Māori. When challenged for payment they offered two calves, which was neither fair nor generous of them. The brothers sold “their” land to the Rhodes brothers in 1847. It is unfortunate that the Stewart bach was built on a paper road and private iwi land, but if someone tried to build on a paper road or private land nowadays I don’t think anyone would view this as okay.

Councillors to decide pavilion’s fate BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

The city council may still foot the bill to repair Redcliffs Community Pavilion to a basic standard. The city council wanted to transfer the ownership of the unrepaired building to the Redcliffs Residents’ Association for $1 so the $100,000 to fix it could be spent elsewhere. But the Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board and Redcliffs Residents’ Association held a workshop last Wednesday and compromised. The board recommended the city council enter into a Memorandum of Understanding, the city council pays to repair the building to a basic standard. The ownership would then be transferred to the association for $1. City councillors have the final decision however, and some board members were worried

Chairwoman Sara Templeton (left) said she did not want the building to be demolished, which was one of the options. But she thought councillors might not want to pay to repair the pavilion and asked for an extra option of any community group being able to own the repaired building for $1. The board voted 3 - 2 in favour of adding an extra

MAN HURT IN CYCLE RACE A 60-year-old man was blown off his bike on Summit Rd while taking part in Le Race on Saturday. He suffered a punctured lung, fractured arm and knocked his head after he was blown off his bike near the Okains Bay intersection at noon. About 600 riders raced in the annual 100km ride from Cathedral Square to Akaroa with Hayden Roulston winning the men’s race, and Linda Villumsen the women’s. SCHOOL PETITION Redcliffs School supporters are able to sign a petition calling for the school to return to its Main Rd site. The petition, which has gained more than 2500 signatures so far, will be sent to Prime Minister John Key, Education Minister Hekia Parata, Ministers Bill English and Gerry Brownlee and the Labour Party’s Andrew Little. The school has until March 31 to plead its case to the Minster on why it should remain open. To sign the petition, visit https://www. change.org/search and search ‘Redcliffs School’. ROAD NAMES DECIDED The Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board decided last week to approve the names for three new roads in Greenwood Farm Subdivision, on Richmond Hill. The new roads will be

called Oxenhope Rd, Sowerby Place and Ridgeway Place. Stages two and three of the subdivision are in development. COMMUNITY VOTE CALLED FOR The Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board has recommended that the community get to vote on the name for the new Sumner library, community centre and museum. The city council is looking at carrying out a similar naming process to Te Hapua: Halswell Centre, where residents sent in suggestions, which were then shortlisted, and voted on. A joint working group, and Maori representatives would get suggestions from the community and shortlist them. The board would then like the community to vote on those names. SCHOOL PARKING CHANGES Consultation on parking changes around the new Lyttelton Primary School will close on March 31. The proposed changes would see drop off and pick up zones installed outside the new school’s entrance on Oxford St. A stop sign would be installed on London St at its intersection with Oxford St and other changes would be made on London and Winchester Sts.

Kath Cross

> Do you know someone who should be our next Our People? Nominate them now by emailing bridget.rutherford@starmedia.kiwi

Taking on the dancefloor for Sumner’s Kath Cross is taking part in ‘Strictly Sumner’, a fundraising event where couples dance for local charities of their choice. Bridget Rutherford spoke to her about her previous dancing experience, being taught by a winning Dancing With the Stars coach and putting the proceeds into getting more visitor information in Sumner Can you tell me a bit about yourself? I’m a mum of two gorgeous kids, a restaurant owner, a Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology tutor and a Sumner Community Residents Association committee member. How long have you lived in Sumner? I first flatted out here 20 years ago. There’s been some stints overseas and living on the Peninsula in between. Where did you live on Banks Peninsula? I lived in Akaroa for three years, when I met Rod, my husband. Beautiful part of the world! And do you work in Sumner too? I mainly work in the city now at CPIT, but I work behind the scenes with our business, The Cornershop Bistro. What do you teach at CPIT ? I work as a part time tutor in

the Department of Food and Hospitality. I teach the likes of restaurant service, barista and wine studies. Oh so it ties in with your business, The Cornershop Bistro. Did you start it? Yes, Rod and I opened it 11 years ago. What made you get involved with Strictly Sumner? Kate, one of the organisers, talked me into it after a couple of wines one night. Have you had any previous dancing experience? I lasted one term in ballet when I was about six, and a couple of years of highland dancing when I was eight. Does that count? How are the practises going? Really good, we are having such a laugh. It is certainly challenging though. Is it a funny experience taking part in it with other locals from Sumner too?

Now that we are mainly doing private lessons we haven’t had much to do with the others. Dying to know how they are all going! Have you heard how the others are coping? I’ve heard they are all doing really well and some have started learning their second dance already. How often do you do it, and do you have a dance teacher? Craig and I are working with dance teacher Vanessa Cole who won Dancing with the Stars last year with Simon Barnett. We see her twice a week, and try to get together two other times a week to cement what we have learnt. Oh wow, do you think that gives you and Craig an advantage considering she led Simon Barnett to victory? She is actually teaching and choreographing five of the couples dances! Amazing lady, so much energy. And what about your dancing partner Craig, how are his dancing skills? I don’t think Craig has ever experienced performing on a stage, so this whole process is a bit of a mind bender for him. With more training I think we

will both develop the confidence we need to pull this off on the night! What charity have you chosen for this year’s event?

We have chosen the Sumner Community Residents Association as our local charity and The Christchurch City Mission as our secondary charity.

UP FOR THE CHALLENGE: Sumner’s Kath Cross is a CPIT tutor, owns The Cornershop Bistro with her husband and has now taken up dancing for a good cause.

her community Why? The SCRA has been a long standing cornerstone in our community for some time. It acts as a conduit of information and resources to many sub groups and larger organisations working within and for our community. For example the city council community engagement that is necessary in developing long term planning for the vil-

lage. While the SCRA runs the administration of the Sumner Hub, it also organises the likes of the Sumner Picnic, monthly e-newsletters and Chatter Soup meetings. What sort of things will that money go towards? All of the above, plus some projects on the go at the moment. One of which is working with the city council to provide map

signage for the village. A visitor information board with a map showing walkways, beach access, open cycle tracks, activities and a business key. Something we can also print and hand out to visitors. So there are a few costs in getting this project happening. How is the fundraising going? We have just set up a Givealittle page which donors can give a few dollars or a little more if they wish. No sum is too small and all so appreciated!  Can you fill me in on how the Strictly Sumner event works? So there are 10 couples. We all have to perform the cha cha cha then we will also perform a second dance of our choice. Could be the jive, waltz, rumba, paso... so that should give the night some flavour. After all performing two dances the judges will eliminate most of the couples and the final two will repeat one of their dances to decide the winner. Should be a great night. And where and when are the performances taking place? May 7 at the Sumner School Hall. To donate to Kath’s cause, visit https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/ strictlykathcraig

Residents to have say on skate park site

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Sumner residents will be asked whether they want a permanent skate park at the former Marine Tavern site before it is pursued any further. The Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board was briefed last week on the possibility of using the redzoned site for the skate park that was originally planned for Scarborough Beach Park. City council recreation planner Megan Carpenter told the board because it was a Crown owned property, there was a lot of uncertainty around temporary use and leases. She said the majority of the site was in the proposed district plan cliff hazard management areas one or two, but a small area was not. “Pretty much it’s a no go zone, there’s a small portion of the site that could be used.” A $35,000 geotechnical report would be needed to determine what areas were safe and what were not, and nearby residents would need to be consulted, she said. The city council was also keen on securing a site for the skate park that it already owned. Ms Carpenter asked the board whether it wanted to pursue looking at the site, or look at other options between Sumner and Ferrymead. Deputy chairwoman Islay

McLeod (above) said given the “heat” on the topic, a public meeting should be held to discuss what the community actually wanted. Chairwoman Sara Templeton said she wanted to talk to the community first, and have the discussion when Brenda Lowe-Johnson, and councillors Yani Johanson and Paul Lonsdale were there. “It does look like we’ll be asking you [Ms Carpenter] to look at other options, but lets talk to the community first.”

LOCAL Achievers

GOOD FORM: Sumner’s Dan Vann scored 71 runs to lead his team to win the senior A two-day title on Saturday.

Tie secures competition win Sumner’s senior A cricket team have won the one-day, two-day and overall competition titles for the first time in 12 years. The team drew with Heathcote in its final match of the season on Saturday, which was carried on from last weekend. The tie caused a bit of confusion as to who had taken out the twoday title, but after about 30min of consideration and a check of the points table, it was determined that Sumner were champions. Heathcote started the day at 14-4, and they were eventually bowled out for 104. Sumner’s Tom Gooday took four wickets, while Brendon Wellington took three. When Sumner’s batsmen took to the crease, they needed 171 runs to win. After a strong start, wickets began to fall, and Heathcote had

Sumner at 63-5. But Sumner’s Wellington and Dan Vann went on a counter attack and scored a 92-run partnership, until Wellington was dismissed for 26. Vann was later gone for 71. Sumner needed six runs with two wickets in hand. Heathcote took another wicket to tie the match, before the last wicket was taken to finish the batting with the score tied. Both teams had to jump on the phone and read the rule books to find the points and other teams’ results before Sumner were crowned winners. Sumner club captain Dan Vann said it was a very weird feeling as the team was not sure if it had done enough to win. Sumner turned out to be 1.12 competition points ahead of Halswell to secure the win.

WELCOME: This year’s intake of Whenua Kura students perform a haka pōwhiri for manuhiri (guests) arriving at Tūtehuarewa at Koukourarata (Port Levy).

New year for Maori agriculture students

The new year of study is underway for 46 students studying as part of the Whenua Kura programme. The students enjoyed a noho marae and powhiri at Koukourarata (Port Levy) where they received their scholarship certificates. They were also able to listen to both Ngāi Tahu kaumātua Tā Tipene O’Regan and Kaiwhakahaere for Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu Tā Mark Solomon talk about their aspirations for the programme. It was also an opportunity to thank programme sponsors Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu and and Te Puni Kōkiri. Most of the students are

enrolled at Lincoln University, and will do practical experience on Ngāi Tahu properties, including work and study on either dairy farms, sheep and beef properties or at the Koukourarata māra kai (organic garden). The course has a Māori approach to learning, which includes support through to potential employment. Whenua Kura is open to all Māori, with scholarships available for those aged 16-40. It is a learning partnership between Te Tapuae o Rehua, Ngāi Tahu Farming and Lincoln University, which seeks to grow Māori leadership in agriculture. Whenua Kura Manager

Renata Hakiwai said one of the key aims of the programme is to train up the best agriculture and horticulture managers possible, so whānau can return to the land and can do so in a way that advances both the land and the people. “We want our students to get jobs but equally to continue to study so that they eventually become farm managers and CEOs.” The programme offers courses to Māori from all across Aotearoa. Participants can study agriculture (Dairying and Sheep & Beef), organic horticulture, farm management and environmental planning.

EQC UPDATE

PAGE 13

KEEPING YOU INFORMED | MARCH 2016

New approach to February 2016 quake claims The Earthquake Commission (EQC) will be drawing on lessons learned in previous Canterbury earthquakes to assess and settle claims from the February 2016 earthquakes. The plan is to speed up assessments, where possible, by calling customers to get all the information we need to desktop assess and cash settle their claim, EQC General Manager, Customer and Claims, Trish Keith says. “We won’t necessarily be sending an assessor to the home, except where there is extensive damage, the claim is complex or a customer’s circumstances require it. “EQC will cash settle most of the claims to enable customers to get onto repairs quickly. We’re doing this because we are hearing from customers that their damage is largely cosmetic building repairs and contents,” Mrs Keith says. For those customers already in the Canterbury Home Repair and land programmes who lodge new claims from the February earthquakes, EQC will deal with their claims at

the same time. In this way, EQC will not slow the existing work programmes down due to the new event. EQC’s approach builds on the lessons we have learnt from Canterbury, Cook Strait, and Eketahuna earthquakes. It also reflects that EQC already has a lot of information about Canterbury customers. “The new process is being piloted with a small group of customers before EQC starts rolling it out in earnest, and early feedback has been very positive.” Mrs Keith says. “We can use information we already know about our Christchurch customers to make settling the latest claims smoother and faster,” Mrs Keith says. “Our goal is to make EQC easy to do business with.” There is still time for customers to lodge a claim. Customers whose home suffered damage in the 14 February earthquake have until 16 May 2016 to lodge a claim. The deadline for lodging a claim for the 29 February earthquake is 30 May 2016.

Ethan Rimell from CB Civil & Drainage shows Sandy Ditchburn the CCTV footage of her drains at her Aranui home.

Drainage assessments underway EQC has started rolling out its assessment programme for sewer and stormwater pipes suspected of having earthquake damage. The programme is to ensure a consistent standard of assessment of all sewer and stormwater drains for drainage claims. Customers with unsettled drainage claims will be contacted progressively throughout 2016 to arrange an assessment of their drains, General Manager, Customer and Claims, Trish Keith says. The assessments will be carried out whether or not an inspection has been done

previously, at no cost to homeowners. The inspection programme will also include properties where new drainage claims are lodged during 2016. Assessment information has been provided in the past by drainlayers contracted by homeowners and EQC. The presentation and the level of detail provided varied significantly. In some cases assessments have not included a recommended repair strategy and estimated cost of repair. “That’s meant that in the past we’ve had to go back to drainlayers to get the level of information we’ve needed to settle drainage claims, which has added unnecessary time and hassle for customers,” Mrs Keith says. “The new assessment process – which was trialled successfully with drainlayers at the end of last year – offers much more guidance for drainlayers. The new process should ensure the reports are consistent and capture all earthquake damage,” Mrs Keith says.

“Some of Canterbury’s largest drainlaying firms, all of which are licensed with the New Zealand Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers Board, will carry out the assessments.” The firms will have a certifying drainlayer – the highest qualification available – to oversee the work of licensed drainlayers. A CCTV recording of the inside of drains will identify any earthquake damage. This information will be used to develop a recommended repair strategy and estimated cost of repair. EQC will use all this information to determine cash settlement. “We will provide additional support for customers who have a genuine need for help in hiring drainage contractors after they have received their cash settlement,” Mrs Keith says. “If further damage is discovered during the repair process customers can contact EQC. If we agree the damage is earthquake-related, an additional payment to cover extra costs may be made.”

Learning from the past. Building for the future.

Dr Laurie Johnson gave the keynote speech at last Friday’s Seismics forum.

EQC was a major sponsor of the fifth Seismics and the City forum in Christchurch last Friday. The forum brought together public, private and community representatives to voice their views on Shaping Canterbury’s Future Now. This year’s emphasis on collaboration, regeneration and innovation was reflected in the EQC’s contribution, including the participation of key speakers. Urban planner Dr Laurie Johnson (Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Centre, UC Berkeley)

offered tangible cases of post-disaster downtown regeneration in other centres to stimulate discussion on realistic goals for Christchurch in the next five years. Dr Johnson has visited Christchurch many times since 2011. She said the great many aftershocks had “reset” the clock for some parts of the community and its infrastructure time and time again, but that Christchurch people should take heart in the betterment and transformation taking place.

“Homes are not simply being patched up. There is a great deal of betterment going into the reconstruction of the housing stock, the infrastructure, and the commercial sector.” Dr Johnson urged Regenerate Christchurch to continue to work toward completion of the vision that central Christchurch is a great place for work, living and play. You can see Dr Johnson’s full 16 minute Seismics in the City presentation at www.eqc.govt.nz

EQC is working out the settlement amounts for around 4,400 customers who were told their properties qualify for Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV) land damage. “We have made good progress so far but there is still more we need to do before we can start making any payments,” says EQC Head of Canterbury Land Settlement, Keith Land. “This work includes determining pre-quake property valuations and the amount of the reduction in market value for affected properties as the direct result of ILV land damage. We are also investigating whether some properties with ILV land damage can be feasibly repaired. In these cases, a settlement based on repair cost may be available.” EQC expects to start settling ILV customers in mid 2016. “We recognise that our customers have been waiting a long time for ILV settlements, but this is the first time this type of land damage has been recognised as insured damage, so the settlements involve ground-breaking work which takes time. “We want to make sure we have robust valuation assessments in place and give our customers quality information,” says Mr Land. Settlements for ILV land damage will be made by cash payment, which is how EQC has been settling all land claims to date. The cash settlement for ILV land damage will be based on one of two approaches: repair cost, or reduction in market value of the property due to ILV land damage – also called Diminution of Value (DOV). “We are establishing which properties can have their ILV land damage feasibly repaired, and which can’t, thereby require settlement on the basis of DOV. It’s important to note that each property is considered on its own merits. Each property has unique characteristics, which means that one-size-fits-all or an automated settlement approach is inappropriate,” says Mr Land. ILV land damage settlements on the basis of repair cost Where, for example, the house needs to be rebuilt, EQC will likely settle the ILV land damage on the basis of repair cost if: — there is a feasible repair method for the repair of the ILV land damage on the property; — the customer intends to carry out the repair within a reasonable period of time using that method; — the land has not been sold since the earthquakes. ILV land damage settlements on the basis of DOV Based on what is known to date, EQC expects that most ILV properties will be settled on the basis of DOV. This is because there will generally not be a feasible repair to ILV damage where the house has remained in place after the earthquakes. Furthermore, if an ILV property was repaired or rebuilt without any repair of the ILV land damage, it is likely the settlement will be based on DOV. The settlement will also be based on DOV if the property has been sold since the earthquakes. “Generally the DOV approach and settlements for what is another non-visible land damage type will be similar to how EQC is handling Increased Flooding Vulnerability (IFV) claims. “For those properties where we are investigating settlement based on repair cost, we will contact customers in two months’ time to inform them of the potential to repair the ILV damage on the property, and see whether they intend to repair the land,” says Mr Land. EQC expects to complete ILV settlements, together with other outstanding land settlements, by the end of this year. FOR MORE INFORMATION on ILV land damage visit the

The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero Real Estate More than 10,000 runners and walkers took part in Sunday’s The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero – and they could not have asked for a better day to do it. The temperature rose to 30 deg C as the last people crossed the finish line. It was the event’s 42nd year, which saw people take part in both the 6km and 14km events finishing at Ferrymead playing fields. Oska Baynes was the first male to cross the line in a time of 45min 30sec, while Lucy Oliver was the first female.

When Dr Kobi Voight is given a set of old letters by his mother he has no inkling that they will lead him around the world and deep into the tragic past of his family. Within the letters - written in Hebrew and filled with delicate illustrations lie the reflections of a young Jewish woman, forced to give up her baby daughter while fighting with the Resistance in Berlin. Who is the author, known only as ‘Ruby’, and what became of her child? And how does a priceless work of art, stolen by the Nazis, form part of the unfolding mystery? As he explores Berlin and visits its war memorials and museums, an astonished Kobi begins to realise he is part of the story, too. From the Holocaust to the present day, across continents and oceans, Kobi’s journey will ultimately lead him to the truth about his family’s past - and his own identity. Julie Thomas returns with the much anticipated sequel to THE KEEPER OF SECRETS and the next episode in the dramatic fortunes of the Horowitz family, set in Australia, Europe and America, from World War II to the present.

Let us know what’s going on with your club or team Email fraser.walker@ starmedia.kiwi or phone 371 0778 GLIDING WIN: Will Hadfield won two of his races, came second in one and fourth in another which led to the overall win.

Determination leads to win BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

OFFICIALLY OPENED: Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community Board chairwoman Paula Smith and Diamond Harbour Tennis Club president John Sims cutting the ribbon at the official open day for the club’s two new Astroturf surfaced courts. The opening, on March 6, brought past and present members together to enjoy a barbecue and celebrate the completion for the major resurfacing project. It involved a huge number of working bees by members and other employed groups. The new courts have already attracted new members, with some joining up on the day. The club was grateful to the Rata Foundation and the community board grants that covered half the cost of the project.

Will Hadfield was determined to come back from a second place to win the South Island Optimist Championships. The Charteris Bay Yacht Club member won the two day regatta on March 12-13 in Dunedin. He was nervous on the first day because he had come second at the Canterbury Championships the previous weekend to fellow Charteris Bay Yacht Club’s David Buchanan. “After coming second at the Canterbury Champs I was optimistic that I could win however there was some good competition with both David and Suede there

who have both had a fantastic season and many other competent opti sailors attending as well.” The 13-year-old had a rough start in the first race on day one, coming fourth. “After the first race I wasn’t feeling too good, I had got a fourth which may sound good but if you’re trying to win it’s rubbish.” But following the first race, he picked up his game and got two firsts and a second. The second day saw the races abandoned because the wind did not fill in, and Will (left) was named the overall champion. “I felt a combination of being relieved and happy as this had been my goal to win and I felt

good that I achieved it. I’ll definitely be back next year to defend my title.” David Buchanan came second, and Dunedin’s Ollie Gilmour came third. Will said sailing in Dunedin was a different experience, because there was a large sand bar that snaked its way through the harbour. Will has been sailing Optimist regattas since he was eight. At the end of last season his results qualified him to be part of the New Zealand Optimist Sailing Squad. He will compete at the New Zealand Optimist Nationals in Kohimarama, Auckland which begins on Thursday.

If, for example, you have a share portfolio of around £200,000 in the UK on which personalised investment advice is provided by a broker, the broker will be in breach of the Financial Advisers Act if he or she is not registered as an AFA in NZ. You will not have the protection of the code of conduct, disclosure requirements and dispute resolution schemes that are mandatory for AFAs. Finally, having assets in currencies other than the New Zealand dollar will expose you to exchange rate risk.

Study supports less invasive therapy A study finds radiotherapy targeting a breast tumour site is effective, reports Ella Pickover

T

ARGETED radiotherapy for breast cancer patients could be just as effective as treating the whole breast, British research has found. Following surgery, focusing radiotherapy around the tumour site produces similar results as treating the whole breast and has fewer long-term side effects, the authors of a study, led by The Institute of Cancer Research, London, say. Radiotherapy is a standard treatment used after the removal of a tumour from a breast, even with those who are deemed

to have a low risk of relapse. The Cancer Research UK-funded clinical trial examined more than 2000 women, aged 50 or older, who had early breast cancer with a low risk of returning. The study, presented at the European Breast Cancer Conference in Amsterdam, split the women into three groups following breastconserving surgery: one had full dose radiotherapy to the whole breast, the current standard treatment; the second had the full dose of radiotherapy to the tumour area, with a lower dose to rest of the breast; and the third group received the full dose to the area where the

tumour had been, and no radiotherapy to the rest of the breast. Five years after their treatment, only one per cent or less of women in each group had a recurrence of their cancer in their breast, according to the researchers. Dr Charlotte Coles of the Cambridge University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We’re really pleased we have demonstrated a very effective radiotherapy approach that also reduces the side-effects of treatment. “Minimising these longterm side-effects is essential as, not only do they impact on physical health, but they can also cause psychological distress.” Professor Arnie Purushotham, senior clinical adviser at Cancer Research UK, said the result could lead to a “crucial change” in the treatment of breast cancer.

Writer’s health journey an inspirational tale By Rachel Grunwell

“I’ve learnt it’s never too late to chase your dream. It’s never too late to change your life for the better.

Digestive health is becoming increasingly important for improving our overall wellbeing. As there is a distinct connection between our tummy and our moods, immunity and even our behaviours, it pays to follow your gut if you feel out of sorts with these nutritional enhancer

ietary fibre is made up of three types and each play a different role throughout the digestive tract. It’s often a case of balancing them all and not only supplementing with just one. To ensure

you get enough fibre in your diet: women should aim for 25 grams to 30 grams and men 30 grams to 38 grams each day. Soluble fibre are found in oats, psyllium, vegetables, fruits with their skin on and supplements like Metamucil. Insoluble

fibre can be found in wheat bran pasta and quinoa. Resistant starch is contained in cold cooked pasta, potatoes and firm, fresh bananas. Probiotics and prebiotic foods can help keep the correct pH balance(acidity to alkalinity) in our intestines. These ‘good’ bacteria assist with breaking down fibre in the bowel and produce healthy stool movements. Probiotics can be found in supplements, cultured yoghurt, kombucha

drinks and fermented vegetables. Prebiotic foods are Jerusalem artichokes and raw garlic, leeks and onions. Poor gut health could be caused by, but not limited to, high stress levels, caffeine, smoking or inadequate water consumption. If you suffer from prolonged periods of reflux, constipation, diarrhoea or cramping and nausea, seek medical advice. Your doctor may help identify possible intolerances or allergies.

THE PERFECT BLEND F

inding the right daily nutritional balance is no easy feat. Managing sugar, carbohydrate, fat and red meat intake takes serious effort and planning, but transforming your favorite recipes into more nutritious family meals may be easier than you realise. Adopting the blenditarian lifestyle is a simple solution to healthier eating. It involves, simply, blending mushrooms into meat to make every day dishes more healthy and delicious. Adding chopped mushrooms to ground beef at a ratio of at least 25 per cent

te bite

mushrooms can enhance the taste of dishes, deliver an extra serving of vegetables and beneficial nutrients, and trim total calories and fat intake. The key to blending is developing the perfect mushroom consistency. If using ground meat for tacos or burgers, chop mushrooms to mimic the familiar crumbled texture, using a knife and cutting board, food processor or vegetable chopper. For stews, halve or quarter mushrooms, or slice them to match strips of meat in fajitas or stir-fry. Practice your blending technique with these recipes and

Lexus hybrid a true touring car

My wife and I had just checked into a Queenstown hotel and had made our way to the room. The drop-off zone and foyer were very busy, so I opted to leave the car key with the concierge to do a valet park. A short while later I was phoned, asking if I could I go down and help with the car, evidently it wouldn’t start. That puzzled me given that we had just driven south from Christchurch and it had run fault-free. When I arrived back downstairs the concierge looked confused, he had pressed the start button and all the dash lights were illuminated, yet the engine wasn’t running – the reason being the car was a hybrid, a Lexus ES300h to be exact, and in the first instance the internal combustion engine doesn’t fire, momentum is initiated by the electric motor. I explained the inner workings of the ES300h to the concierge, and from that point all was well. However, the fact remains, hybrid power is yet to gain full acceptance and meaning. However, I’m sold on the concept. I was in Queenstown to watch the annual Gibbston Valley Winery summer concert series, and my wife and I also used the event to continue fur-

ther south to Bluff and take in a couple of days on the tranquil Stewart Island. We clocked up over 1500km in the Lexus, and every kilometre was covered in comfort, luxury and quiet motion. That trip was the longest I’ve travelled in a hybrid, and I can categorically say that the ES300h is a touring car of true genius. The combination of power and economy is quite satisfying. The ES300h gets the 2.5-litre petrol/ electric system from Toyota Camry Hybrid and other Lexus product such as NX and GS. While it is based on the mechanical process of Prius, its larger engine capacity provides strong performance – up to 151kW and 270Nm is claimed from the petrol/electric combination. That equation translates to quick overtaking times and solid acceleration from standstill – 0-100km/h in 8.5sec. Yet, the large four-door sedan is also a fuel-miser. Lexus claims a 5.5-litre per 100km/h (52mpg) combined cycle rating

Still Pedalling!

Price: Lexus ES300h, $86,990. Dimensions: Length,4915mm; width, 1820mm; height, 1450mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder transverse, front-wheel-drive, 2494cc, 118kW, 151Nm, CVT. Performance: 0-100km/h, 8.5sec.

LEXUS ES300h: Provides comfort on a long journey.

for the ES300h, so I set myself a 6l/100km goal at some point along the journey, but I failed. The best I could achieve was a 6.3l/100km (45mpg) figure on the road to Bluff from Invercargill, the rest of the time the readout sat at 6.4l/100km. Those figures were realised, bearing in mind that I constantly maintained a healthy pace. The ES300h is a car which relishes the open road, it feels relaxed and sits well attached to the road, the steering is beautifully weighted and directional when pushed quickly into a corner. Along with a major facelift, Lexus claims the ES series has had a suspension enhancement, the four-strut system has been stiffened slightly. I can report

that the changes do nothing to affect ride quality. The Lexus 300h isn’t one of the company’s best sellers. In this age where SUVs are still increasing in popularity the NX or RX are expected to become Lexus’ most popular choice for buyers. However, I’m a great sedan fan and enjoyed the ES immensely. It is available here in four variants starting from $74,990. The test car was a Limited model at $86,990 and it lacks for nothing. Incidentally, there are also two conventional V6 petrol-powered models at $88,990 and $100,990. Major items in the Limited include three-zone climate control, satellite navigation, electric

sunroof, heated and cooled front seats (heated rears), fabulous wood and leather steering wheel and radar cruse control. The latter is part of the extensive safety package Lexus has upgraded for the new ES. Titled Safety System +, it includes crash avoidance and pre-crash technologies. The entire in-cabin experience is one of comfort. The seats are body hugging, each time my wife and I exited after a journey we felt fresh and were without any body aches. For 2016, Lexus in New Zealand is in the process of rolling out a raft of new models and upgrades. There is some exciting product landing along with the more middle-of-the-road models like the ES series. And while that may sound as though the ES doesn’t have charisma, it certainly does, and its capability all-round doesn’t cease to surprise.

Toyota New Zealand has launched a new sports utility vehicle. The seven-seat Fortuner offers a midsize diesel SUV set to tackle the demands of families and business owners alike with unprecedented safety, style and 4WD capability. Toyota believes the Fortuner is ideally positioned to appeal to those seeking a purpose-built and contemporary SUV and is expected to sell between 600 and 700 Fortuners in 2016. “It’s well positioned to provide us with an incremental sales opportunity, especially with private buyers,” said Steve Prangnell, Toyota New Zealand’s general manager of sales. The Fortuner range offers three grades – GX, GXL and Limited, all powered by the advanced 2.8-litre diesel engine launched in the Land Cruiser Prado and all-new Hilux at the end of 2015. There are three drives modes, eco, normal and power and an easy to use 4WD selector with the options of high range 2WD and 4WD or low range 4WD for when you need to alternate from the ultimate urban transporter through to an adventure machine. The Fortuner’s engine produces 130kW and 450Nm of torque. The manual has a combined fuel consumption of 7.8l/100km and the automatic at 8.6l/100km. There is a braked tow rating of 2.8-tonne for the automatic models and three tonne for the manual. The Fortuner gets a five-star ANCAP safety rating. Prices range from $70,990 to $78,990.
