Obesity worry for kids ‘Dangerous’

The number of overweight New Zealand children could grow by 40,000 over the next 10 years if nothing is done to address the weighty problem. • Gabrielle Stuart reports on page 3

SPORT, P47 YOUNG PLAYER SWITCHES CODE TO RABBITOHS

„ By Tom Doudney ALLEGATIONS of “sub-standard” and “dangerous” structural engineering work on five Christchurch buildings will be investigated by the city council. The buildings include a multilevel residential building, three commercial premises and a school, and the work was carried out during the last two years. In a sworn affidavit delivered to the city council this week, a former employee of the structural engineering company which worked on the buildings said he had been placed into roles he was unqualified for. The Star has obtained the affidavit. In his affidavit, he states he was directed to take short cuts which deviated from the buildings specifications and would compromise the engineering. “During the 17 months I was employed by [the company], I saw a lot of health and safety laws broken and more importantly a significant amount of structural

site work that, due to training I have subsequently had, I now realise was sub-standard.” In particular, the former employee highlighted concerns over the residential building which is now partially occupied. Apart from a crane operator, he said he had been the sole worker on site for most of his six months on the project and believed the work done on the building had been “dangerously sub-standard.” He said he was not qualified for the structural welding work he carried out and this was true of most other welders working for the company. The former employee’s allegations relating to the apartment building included: • K brace connection brackets welded one side only (not both, as required) by non-certified welder. • Drilling through concrete panels and the company owner gave instructions to gas cut reinforcing steel that was interfering with the drilling. • Turn to page 4

THAT’S ONE happy kid on the front page today. But he is fat. And therein lies a major problem for our kids today who are the adults of tomorrow; many are obese. The numbers of overweight kids will grow by 40,000 nationwide within the next 10 years, unless something is done. The results come from an extensive study into child obesity. More than 6000 children in Canterbury and across the South Island have been part of the study. The statistics in our article on page 3 make for grim reading. Food for thought, you might say. And speaking of happy kids, high school rugby star Cruz Topai-Aveai has become a rugby league convert and is off to the code’s big stage in Sydney (see page 47). Cruz has been signed by South Sydney and will play in the under-20 grade, the club’s first grade nursery. Life at the Rabbitohs will be anything but a cruise for the 17-year-old. – Barry Clarke

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

SHOW WEEK AMBASSADOR

This week in history saw the Christchurch Club (right) opened on October 17, 1861. It was designed by B W Mountfort and Isaac Luck and is one of the country’s first clubs. On October 22, 1863, the first Agricultural and Pastoral Association show was held in the showgrounds, which is now Sydenham Park. An “unofficial” show had been held in October 1862. Elizabeth, the one-tonne elephant seal who lived in the Avon and Heathcote Rivers, died of a viral infection on Sumner Beach on October 22, 1985. Elizabeth was often found crawling along suburban streets, and lounging on the river banks, estuaries and beaches. On the same date in 1988, Patricia Costigan was appointed as Christchurch’s first female district court judge.

Laura McGoldrick has been named as next month’s New Zealand Cup and Show Week ambassador. The Sky TV cricket presenter was born and raised in Christchurch and is excited to return for the week. She has fond memories of attending the races and the show from when she was young. As part of her role, she will be a Cup Day fashion judge at Addington Raceway.

Overweight kids on rise

Diabetes, high blood pressure and liver disease concerns „ By Gabrielle Stuart MEDICAL EXPERTS are warning the number of overweight Kiwi kids will grow by 40,000 within the next 10 years, unless something is done. They estimate there will be more than 262,000 overweight children and teenagers by 2025, and predict more cases of diabetes, hypertension and liver disease. More than 6000 children in Canterbury and across the South Island have been part of the extensive study done by the DHB South Island Alliance and the World Obesity Federation. It has tracked child body measurements and how they are changing over time, and is then able to predict what future generations might look like. It also estimated 4001 school-

aged children would have Type 2 diabetes, 27,093 would have high blood pressure and 37,500 would have fatty liver disease if the trends continued. Paediatrician and researcher Yvonne Anderson (left) said understanding the scale of the obesity problem was the first step toward addressing it. “We just can’t afford to leave these children’s health issues unaddressed, and not just for their health and wellbeing, but also for the health system,” she said.

“While it’s not great reading seeing how bad the problem is there are positives coming out of it, because we can turn some of these health markers around if we can halt the weight gain.” Dr Anderson has been working on a two year study of more than 200 obese Taranaki children, which also found they were at much greater risk of a range of diseases and conditions. She said the intervention programme she worked on had proved effective in turning the

children’s health around, but there was no simple fix. “There’s no silver bullet, no one solution to such a complex problem,” she said. A group which included doctors, several school principals, parents and Port Hills MP Ruth have been lobbying the city council asking them to restrict fast food outlets opening around schools. They were concerned about the number of fast food outlets close to Linwood Avenue School, which include McDonald’s, KFC and Burger King. The city council asked for a report on potential solutions, but that is likely to take eight months to complete. South Island Clinical Advisory Group for Childhood Healthy Weight chairman Barry Taylor (left) said the tool allowed medical services to make comparisons over time. “A child’s growth rate is a fundamental measure of health and well-being, but it’s no use looking at the data once, it has to be over a period of time,” he said.

Schwass to sell restaurant „ By Gabrielle Stuart HIGH PROFILE chef Jonny Schwass’ Harlequin Public House restaurant is up for sale. He opened the Salisbury St restaurant in 2013, after his Restaurant Schwass on Ferry Rd was forced to close because of earthquake damage. Mr Schwass (right) would not comment on the sale, except to say it was on the market to “gauge value and resolve a partnership issue”. The restaurant is jointly owned

by Mr Schwass and his business partner, Auckland film production business owner George Binnersley. The business is advertised as a “hospitality hub”, with two dining rooms, a drawing room, cocktail snug, bar, foyer and

in 1899 and once housed the Christchurch Teachers’ College. Mr Schwass offered up a chance to run the restaurant for a day to anyone willing to put $10,000 toward the ConversatioNZ initiative, which aims to promote New Zealand food overseas. Although no one accepted the offer he was still able to raise more than $34,000 for the project. That allowed them to hire a co-ordinator to work full-time. • Cracroft vineyard on the market, page 10

In Brief DEPUTY MAYOR DECISION By the end of today, Christchurch will know who its deputy mayor is. Mayor Lianne Dalziel will announce who her deputy will be for the next three years before the councillors are sworn in at the inaugural meeting at 4pm today. Councillor Vicki Buck served as her deputy in the last term. DALZIEL BACK FROM HAWAII Mayor Lianne Dalziel returned from Hawaii on Sunday after being a keynote speaker at the Structural Engineers Association of California convention last week. The convention was focused on recovering, learning and rebuilding after recent Pacific Rim earthquakes. Ms Dalziel said it was also an opportunity to thank those who came and offered assistance to Christchurch following the February 2011 earthquake. Her trip was funded by the association.   PAPERLESS AGENDAS The city council is moving to paperless agendas in a bid to save $90,000 a year in production, delivery and disposal costs. There had been more than 1000 individual agendas printed each month. Community boards would do the same from early next year. Paper copies will still be available to members of the public attending meetings. It comes after the city council saved almost $1 million over a year by cracking down on colour printing, and rehoming stationery. SCHOOL SHIFT STUDY A feasibility study into whether it would be realistic to move Redcliffs School to Barnett Park or another site has been completed. Education Minister Hekia Parata will base her final decision on the findings of the study, which is expected to be released this month. The Ministry of Education, city council and school’s board of trustees worked together to consider the options. Following the findings, Redcliffs School still wants to return to its Main Rd site, however, it is open to an alternate one.

Work will be investigated

Now you see it . . . now you don’t „ By Bridget Rutherford A SIGN pointing to the old Convention Centre, which was demolished four years ago, has finally been painted over. The sign, next to the Christchurch Casino, had until last week pointed to the old facility, which could have caused confusion for people visiting the city.

Earthworks for the new Convention Centre site starts this week. • Gerry Brownlee’s column page 18.

He did this as an uncertified welder. • Chemical anchor bolts were not drilled to full depth. When bolts encountered steel or obstruction, he was instructed to gas cut the steel, drill through it or cut the protruding chemical anchor bolt short. He now understood this was completely inappropriate and unsafe. • Seating angle for the balconies were cut off on site, relocated and rewelded.

lapse is due soon. City council general manager consenting and compliance Leonie Rae told The Star yesterday the affidavit had been received on Monday and forwarded to senior managers for investigation. “All allegations are taken seriously, at the moment the investigation is in the preliminary stage,” she said. Asked whether code compliance certificates and other documentation had been signed off for the buildings and what inspections had been carried out on them, Ms Rae said that would form part of its investigation. The Star observed a building warrant of fitness signed off by a building inspection company in the entrance way of one of the commercial buildings. Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration Gerry Brownlee said the allegations were very serious so he was pleased the city council had decided to investigate. “I will be asking the council to keep me updated on this issue,” he said. The Star contacted the managing director of the company. He said he didn’t want his views published.

Church could demolish Cathedral „ By Bridget Rutherford THE ANGLICAN Diocese could demolish all or part of the Christ Church Cathedral without public consultation – if it has a plan to rebuild or restore it. As part of the Christchurch Replacement District Plan, an independent hearings panel made rules the diocese would have to follow when a decision on the Cathedral’s future was made. It decided if the diocese applied for resource consent to fully or partially demolish the Cathedral, it would be a controlled activity – under the proviso the demolition was for the purpose of restoration or a rebuild and a consent application was made for that. Controlled activities do not require public or limited notification. That means no one could have their say on it. However, in spite of the district plan rules, the city council has the power to publicly notify an application if it was under “exceptional” circumstances. “They need to be considered in the context of a given consent application,” city council head of

planning and strategic transport Richard Osborne said. The diocese also holds a section 38 notice, issued under CERA, allowing the removal of “hazards” without gaining consent. The hearings panel decided if the section 38 notice was used, it was up to the High Court to decide the scope of the hazards

– whether it be demolishing part of the building or all of it. The panel decided if the section 38 notice was not used and, if there were no plans to rebuild the Cathedral, the demolition would be classed as a restricted discretionary activity, which would require some sort of notification. The Anglican Diocese wants

to demolish the Cathedral and build a new one for cheaper than it would cost to repair, while heritage advocates want it restored. It would cost $105 million to repair, and between $63-$66 million to rebuild a cathedral of the same size and scale. A working party will make a recommendation on the Cathedral’s future next month. Great Christchurch Buildings Trust co-chairman Jim Anderton (right) said the trust was happy with the hearings panel decision because it meant resource consent was needed. He said it would be “impossible” to get a resource consent to demolish the Cathedral without a plan to rebuild it, because it was a category one heritage building. The Anglican Diocese did not respond to The Star. Councillor Yani Johanson said the replacement district plan rules made heritage buildings more vulnerable to demolition. He said it would be hard to find a more exceptional circumstance to allow people to have their say than on the Cathedral.

In Brief SCHOOL UPGRADE How Hornby High School will look after its $31 million rebuild has been revealed. Separate staff and student cafes, underfloor heating, a technology centre and a courtyard are some of the new features in a redesigned school that will see the roll increase from 800 to 1200. Construction will get underway in January and is expected to take two years to complete. POOL PLAN A concept design on the Linwood Woolston Pool is not expected until November next year with building to begin in 2018. A city council report revealed the timeline of the project and also showed a project team has been assessing how it will benefit the community. This will be completed by next month. An analysis will be undertaken to assess where the pool is best placed. The community believes the best site is at the old plant nursery on Smith St. CHAIRLIFT TOWERS UP The towers for the Christchurch Adventure Park’s chairlift have been installed. The 1.8km long high-speed chairlift – the longest in New Zealand – will take up to 1200 visitors and their bikes per hour to the top of the Port Hills. The park is due to open in December.

Mental health disaster forecast „ By Gabrielle Stuart HEALTH BOARD chief executive David Meates warned the community was at risk of a mental health disaster and needed more help – several months before Canterbury posted the highest suicide numbers ever recorded in New Zealand. Seventy-eight Cantabrians committed suicide in the last year – the highest number on record in any region since the statistics were first collected in 2007. The figures were released by the chief coroner on Tuesday. Speaking to a health select committee in February about the Canterbury District Health Board’s financial problems, Mr Meates (left) said the pressure on Canterbury’s mental health services was so great it was “keeping us up at night.” “We are getting to the point where those health professionals working in mental health are at capacity and are at a point where the sustainability of what they’re doing is becoming increasingly challenged,” he said. He told them the CDHB had already made “massive prior-

Bought to you by

itisation decisions to prevent a disaster from happening.” “What we’re seeing playing particularly through is middleaged women with anxiety and depression,” he said. The statistics reported a significant increase in the numbers of women who

committed suicide. Canterbury was given an extra $5.48 million for mental health services in March. But even with the extra, the amount available per person for mental health in Canterbury is lower than the national average. A CDHB spokeswoman said

Mr Meates was not available to answer questions about the issue yesterday. Labour health spokeswoman Annette King said Mr Meates’ statement was a clear warning, and the problems he had predicted had played out. “The links are very obvious,” she said. Canterbury chief medical officer Sue Nightingale said on Tuesday, when the figures were released, it was not possible to tell from the suicide figures if there was a trend. “We have had an increase in presentations to mental health services since the earthquake stress, but this does not necessarily translate into suicide risk,” she said. She said there were peaks and troughs in the figures and the geographical area where they were reported had changed over the years. Suicide was a whole of society responsibility, and people needed to encourage others to seek help, she said. • The Suicide Crisis Helpline is 0508 828 865, the Depression Helpline is 0800 111 757 and Lifeline is 0800 543 354.

Air ambulance contract decision

„ By Bridget Rutherford GARDEN CITY Helicopters has regained its contract to run the air ambulance service for Canterbury and the West Coast. The Canterbury District Health Board called for applicants for the contract at the end of last year. Garden City Helicopters has been the provider for the past 20 years. Its new contract for transferring acutely ill patients between hospitals and other South Island locations, as well as the Chatham Islands, began on October 1. It will expire in September 2018. It comes as the Ministry of Health and ACC announced they are undertaking a major “rethink” into air ambulance services and how they operate. The National Ambulance Sector Office is looking at developing a new model, which will come into effect after the 12 current provider contracts expire in 2018. It aims to have a national integrated network of air ambulance providers which cover the whole of New Zealand These services are currently delivered by 12 providers, including Garden City Helicopters, with clinical support provided by St John and Wellington Free Ambulance.

Looking at what might have

In 2011, the city council put together a detailed plan for the central city rebuild, complete with light rail, an indoor market and green technology, but when put to Government it was rejected. Gabrielle Stuart looked at what the city might look like today under the plan GREEN AND bustling with people – that was the city council’s vision for how the central city would look by 2017. In the centre of the city, an indoor market would be open and busy with shoppers. Up the road, the new Central Library would be open, and a new convention centre on the former Kilmore St site would be finished and hosting events. The Metro Sports Facility would almost be finished. Free parking and bus rides would encourage people to visit the central city. Space would have been set aside for a light rail network from the central city to the suburbs and Canterbury University, with construction of the network set to begin in 2019. They planned to have it running by 2022. There would be far fewer empty spaces.

With most projects built on land the city council already owned, work could have been done without the same delays and many businesses could have stayed open. An extra $38 million would be set aside for grants to encourage businesses to rebuild or move back into the city. So why was it rejected? At the time, it took even the city leaders by surprise. The plan was very detailed, including time-lines, budgets and city rule changes, and took almost a year to develop. Huge community consultation on it had been done, with two week hearings held, more than 100,000 ideas gathered in the Share an Idea campaign and a summary of the plan delivered to every household. When it was rejected by Government, former mayor Bob Parker publicly supported the decision.

BIG DREAMS: The city council’s original plan for the central city included a $400 million light rail network.

But he told The Star he had privately been “shattered.” “I am still disappointed. My personal view is we would have ended up with a city that was truly created by it’s community, which would have been remarkable,” he said. “In the end it was taken completely out of our hands, and we

had to sit there and watch others brought in to do work that I and others had spent our whole local government careers preparing to do.” He believed the rebuilt city would still be a great one. But he believed a lot of opportunities and chances to engage the public had been lost.

The plan would also have been cheaper. The cost was estimated at $1.596 billion. That was almost $264 million cheaper than the $1.86 billion budget set out in the current cost-sharing agreement, not including the cost of fixing central city infrastructure networks.

been for our inner-city But there would have been no clearly defined innovation, health, performing arts or justice precincts, and the stadium project, which is now on hold, would have stayed in the suburbs. Some projects would also have taken longer under the city council’s plan, like a city playground, the Avon River redevelopment and the earthquake memorial. Christchurch Central MP Nicky Wagner said rebuilding after a major disaster would take at least 25 years, so it was important to take a long-term view. In the long term, she believed the chosen plan would be better for the city. “I remember trying to regenerate the square in the inner-city, and actually, it was dying. It was a donut city. We were trying to stimulate it, but it was too spread out,” she said. She agreed rebuilding on existing sites might have sped the rebuild up, but believed redesigning it would bring a better outcome. “It will become a modern, easy to navigate, compact city, and that was only possible because the Government agreed to buy the land,” she said.

Little patch of Italy for sale „ By Bridget Rutherford WILMA AND Alessandro Laryn know what makes a fine wine – having good grapes to start with, and believing in your product. The Italian couple moved to Christchurch 20 years ago, and bought a 9ha piece of land at the bottom of the Port Hills, before transforming it into a vineyard and winery. But after two decades, they have decided to retire, putting Cracroft Chase Vineyard on the market. “We haven’t made up any plan yet. We would like to travel to have a bit more time to ourselves,” Mrs Laryn said. The land, vineyard, winery, olive grove, and Mediterranean-style home are all for sale as a package, which is a 15min drive from the central city. The couple had been living in Rome and Milan before they visited Christchurch. “When we decided to move to New Zealand, we came for a five-week tour of the country. We visited the major towns – Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. We found the three of them absolutely lovely but in a way we felt closer in

SUCCESSFUL: Alessandro and Wilma Laryn have decided after 20 years of making wine, to retire.

spirit to Christchurch.” After seeing the Cracroft property was coming up for sale, they went back to Italy

and applied for residency before buying it. They spent a year contemplating what to do with the

block, before deciding to plant grapes and olives, because it had a sheltered micro-climate, Mrs Laryn said. She said although they had no personal experience in wine-making, some relatives did. Since then their pinot gris lunch and dinner wines have won a number of international wine awards. They produce about 20,000 bottles a year, which are distributed mostly to New Zealand and Australia. The grapes are picked by hand, and every year around April, about 40-60 Cracroft residents go along to help with the harvest, Mrs Laryn said. On top of that, they have about two or three groups visit the winery each weekend for tours. Mrs Laryn said there had been interest in buying the winery, and they would be sad to sell. However, they hoped the new owners would carry on the work they started – and they would continue to drink the wine. “It’s the best wine in the world. We will be our best clients.”

Kindness gets hunter’s body home

Gabrielle Stuart reports on the tragic death of Danish national Nicolaj Brun and the fundraising effort to get his body home AFTER TWO years away from his home in Denmark, Nicolaj Brun had just booked tickets for his father to visit New Zealand so they could go on a hunting trip together. Last week, his parents learned their son had been killed in the mountains he loved. The 26-year-old carpenter, who lived in Christchurch, died in a fall from a ridgeline while hunting on the West Coast last Friday. He was on a hunting trip on Gun Ridge Track with his boss and good friend, Per Jacobson, who was with him when he fell. Mr Jacobsen said it had been a “perfect day” before the accident. “We climbed up to the top, walking and hunting, and the weather was brilliant – it was the best day ever. We talked about lots of things, mainly just b******t, laughing at animals we saw.” He saw his friend fall from

the mountain, and said flashes of that moment replayed in his mind. “I’m never going to get over the loss,” he said. They were experienced hunters and equipped with emergency beacons, which he activated. Then he waited alone until emergency services arrived by helicopter about an hour later. He said his first thought was to call Nicolaj’s family in Denmark, but the police would not let him, organising instead to have a Danish police officer visit the family to break the news to them in person. But he had called them every day afterward to keep them informed about what was happening. They had wanted to have their son’s body returned home so they could farewell him, he said. But the process was complicated and expensive. After getting advice from the Danish embassy in Christchurch, Mr Jacobsen and his wife, Louise Jacobsen, started a Givealittle page to try to gather the $25,000 they believed they would need for the costs. But he said the response was overwhelming, with the $25,000

LAST MEMORIES: Christchurch carpenter Nicolaj Brun (right) with his co-worker and friend Per Jacobsen, taken while on their West Coast hunting trip soon before the accident.

raised in three days. The total as of yesterday was almost $39,000. They flew the body back to Denmark on Tuesday, and were due to arrive there today. The extra would be passed on to Nicolaj’s family and Mr Jacobsen hoped it might allow them to make a trip to New Zealand to see the country their son had loved, or to create a memorial for him in the mountains. Hundreds of messages were left by donors, some saying

Nicolaj was a true friend they would never forget, while others said they had only met him once but appreciated his hard work and kindness. Mr Jacobsen said Nicolaj had moved to New Zealand two years ago to take a job in his construction business. “He loved the outdoors, so for him, New Zealand was the ultimate adventure. Every time he had a spare day off he would go do something – fishing or hunting in the mountains or surfing.”

He said Nicolaj was always smiling and the kind of person who was always ready to stand up for people or lend a hand. Mr Jacobsen said Nicolaj had helped him many times, including once when he was home alone with his baby daughter and injured himself. “I rang him and said Nik, brother, I need your help. Three minutes later he was at my doorstep. He’ll always be remembered as a bloody good guy, a legend in his own right,” he said.

Log burners to stay for five more years times unpopular, with it using controversial systems such as thermal imaging cameras to find noncompliant burners. But it has seen high pollution nights plummet from 60 in 1999 to five this year. Government rules say, as of next winter, the city can have no more than three high pollution nights a year. The hearing panel also said financial assistance packages on offer – $1000 to replace a log burner or $2000 to install a heat pump – were inadequate. ECan director of air Katherine Trought said a review was under way as it identified this winter that vulnerable people were not enough and it did not always reach those most vulnerable. The panel’s recommendations were adopted by ECan and should be implemented if there are no appeals against the plan.

„ By Shelley Robinson HOUSEHOLDS will be able to hang onto their log burners for an extra five years after a recently released decision said the old rules would leave vulnerable people out in the cold. A recent hearing panel decision on Environment Canterbury’s proposed air plan said households should be allowed to keep older-style, low emission log burners for 20 years, instead of the proposed 15 years. The panel of Sir Graham Panckhurst, Jenny Simpson and Yvette Couch-Lewis made the recommendation because of fears vulnerable households would be driven into “fuel poverty.” This was because ultralow emission log burners came with a price tag of between $9000 to $11,000.

pressures stress Canty police Police Association director for Canterbury and Tasman Mike McRandle (right) said international research showed after disasters like the September 4, 2010, and February 22, 2011, stress levels manifested five to six years on. “We are not immune, we are a reflection of our community and they are feeling the same,” he said. But he said stress was not just due to the earthquakes. Every day police are exposed to trauma which can build up, he said. He said police management were working with the association, praising Superintendent Price for his “open and honest dialogue” on issues. Massey University senior lecturer clinical psychology Ian de Terte said police are exposed to “cumulative trauma” in the execution of their daily duties.

He estimated for about 15 per cent the earthquake was the “straw that broke the camel’s back” resulting in psychological stress or staff that had “just had enough.” “It’s like when it’s a build up. You can’t say really say this was caused by the earthquake and this was caused by policing, when talking about Canterbury. Having both is not acceptable. It is quite detrimental to staff,” he said. He said evidence supported that peer social support, was better than “top down” social support from management. The survey showed heightened stress levels since last year’s results are not isolated to Canterbury. The Eastern police district, covering East Cape to southern Hawkes Bay, had 73 per cent of staff saying that work-related stress levels were unacceptable. The best was Auckland City police district on 45 per cent. Superintendent Price said overall, he was pleased with the workplace survey results, as they were some of the most positive of the 12 police districts.

THIS WEEK has heralded more good news for Christchurch’s regeneration with earthworks starting on both the Metro Sports Facility and Convention Centre sites. Crown company Ōtākaro Limited, which is overseeing the delivery of the Crown-led anchor projects, has announced substantial earthworks will this week begin on the Convention Centre site. Protranz Earthmoving is carrying out preparation work on the 2.5ha site, between Cathedral and Victoria squares. This is an important step ahead of the foundations being constructed midnext year. The Convention Centre will be capable of hosting up to 2000 delegates for national and international events. The facility will include a large delegate auditorium, a 3600m2 exhibition hall and 1600m2 of meeting rooms.

Gerry Brownlee

Ōtākaro is continuing to develop the Convention Centre design and discussions with potential main works contractors are ongoing. The Convention Centre will be a significant drawcard for Christchurch and wider Canterbury and will help grow the regional economy. The facility is expected to be completed in late 2019. Early works on the Metro Sports Facility have also kicked off this week. At around 34,000m2, the Metro Sports Facility will be the largest aquatic and indoor recreation and leisure venue of its kind in New Zealand. It will include a 50m, 10-lane competition

swimming pool and a separate diving pool, large aquatic leisure area, five hydroslides, fitness spaces and nine indoor courts for sports such as netball and basketball. The Metro Sports Facility will be a wonderful asset for Cantabrians – a place of fun and recreation that also caters to the needs of educational and highperformance sporting groups. I’m looking forward to seeing these two major projects become a reality and believe this is an exciting time for Christchurch. Gerry Brownlee is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration

More police would be a big win for communities MORE COPS will be a boost for local policing. Ever since the earthquakes, police in Christchurch have faced some unique challenges. From dealing with the initial destruction and emergency response when many of their own homes were damaged and their personal lives hugely disrupted, to the grinding years of recovery when rise in mental health demand often meant more work for frontline police, our local cops have done a stellar job. Whenever I speak to police in our area, not only am I struck by their professionalism, but by the very impressive approach they take to modern policing. From their focus on using high quality data to identify the areas of the city most affected by family violence, to working across different agencies to ensure all the best information is being shared, to having a mental

Megan Woods health nurse available in the cells, our local police are really on the forefront of policing smarter to get better results. Given the excellent work they are doing, I was especially proud last week when Andrew Little announced Labour’s plan to back our police with 1000 new front line cops. In the Budget, the current Government signed off on a four-year staffing freeze. That means while population and crime rates rise, the numbers of police stay static. It’s a recipe for less crimes being solved and more crime overall. It puts our police in the impossible situation of having to do more with less.

Here in Canterbury for example, we are seeing real issues with methamphetamine and synthetic cannabis. Yet we’ve had the biggest drop of sworn police investigating illegal drugs in the country. In the 2012/2013 year we had 24 full-time staff on drug investigations, now we have just 17. Putting more front line police on the job is going to help the great work our local cops are doing and it will mean they can address some of the tougher issues they currently don’t have the resources for. It’ll be a big win for local communities. Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman

More than 6000 people packed out the four children’s fishing lakes at The Groynes on Sunday for the annual Take a Kid Fishing day. It was fitting the first fish caught was one of 14 trophy rainbow trout put in the lake on Thursday by North Canterbury Fish & Game. Four-year-old Violet Noone surprised her father Patrick by reeling in the first monster 2.9kg four minutes after the hooter had sounded. Violet showed it wasn’t a fluke, reeling in another 2.9kg trout within the hour. Her father Patrick said she is now hooked on fishing. NICE CATCH: Violet Noone, 4, (left) and her father Patrick hold the first of two huge rainbow trout Violet caught at the annual Take a Kid Fishing day.

Pie maker leaves his legacy to family at the time, which was “very expensive” compared to the other pies. However, they were popular, Grant Hillyer said. “The students came down with their pocket money on Thursdays and Fridays and would buy two of them.” Further down the track, the chicken, cranberry and brie pie was put on the menu, which was inspired by a pizza flavour at Winnie Bagoes after it had just opened in the 90s. Hillyers was a real family business – with Grant and his wife Nardia taking it over and daughter Wendy having an input into recipes – until it was sold in 1995 but it still retains the same name today. “The strength of our business was the family,” Grant Hillyer said. However, when family members moved away, it felt like the right time to sell, he said. Mrs Hillyer passed away 16 years ago, but some of her recipes are still being used at Hillyers now. Grant Hillyer said the family still did a lot of baking and cooking – sister Wendy, who has had a lot of input into Hillyers and its recipes, is married to award-winning chef Rex Morgan.

A pioneer in pie making died early this month. Bridget Rutherford reports FROM RAISING four children to making half a tonne of pastry a day – Bert Hillyer was a busy man. The co-founder of Hillyers of Lincoln passed away earlier this month, aged 87. Mr Hillyer’s son Grant said his father was always cheerful and most happy when he was with his family and friends. Mr Hillyer and his wife, Irene, started Hillyers of Lincoln in 1967 after Irene had been baking for the local bowling and tennis clubs. Her food became so popular, the council told her she needed to get commercial premises to continue doing it. So that is exactly what the Hillyers did. Their good friend Jim Burke offered his building at 9 Robert St in Lincoln to them, which had previously housed a butchery. “Hillyers would have never existed without the help of the Burke family,” Grant Hillyer said.

PIONEER: The late Bert Hillyer set up Hillyers Bakery with his wife Irene about 50 years ago.

Mr Hillyer had been working as an engineer at Springston Agriculture Engineering and wanted a change. “Even the first oven they had was rescued from being thrown out from the dump.” Mr Hillyer was raised in midCanterbury and went into an orphanage after his mother died giving birth to his younger sister. At the age of 12, he left school to work on farms before he became an engineer. Although his background was not in baking, he still had input

into the recipes and was tasked with making half a tonne of pastry a day. “They would never work less than 80 hours a week. It was a really hard life, but one that was very rewarding for them,” Grant Hillyer said. The pie has always been the bakery’s forte and it began experimenting with different flavours and combinations. Grant Hillyer said it was at a time when there were only mince, bacon and egg and steak pies to choose from.

EARLY DAYS: Some of the original staff and family outside Hillyers Bakery in Lincoln.

He said the steak and mushroom was the first gourmet flavour they introduced and, by 1980, they brought in the now popular steak and cheese. “And for three years, nobody would buy them, nobody liked them.” The steak and oyster pie was introduced shortly after, which generously had three Bluff oysters in it. “My mother only did things over the top. She didn’t like to skimp.” They were being sold for $3.50

Our People

From punk rock teenager to It’s been two years since Lyttelton violinist and composer Fiona Pears has put on a show in Christchurch. On Saturday, she’ll break the hiatus with a sold out show at Blue Smoke in The Tannery. Annabelle Dick talked to her about her time in the music industry, marrying her manager and leaving school as a 15-year-old, punk rock delinquent You’re a musician by trade, how did you get into music? I was brought up in a family that was very musical and my mother was a piano teacher. Music was my escape as a young child. If I didn’t feel good, music made me feel good no matter what. When I was taken to my first violin concert at four-yearsold and that was it – basically I screamed the house down “I want a violin, I want a violin,” and I got one in my Santa stocking. I used to play it around the house all the time no matter what. Do you play any other instruments? I did the piano as a second

instrument and I found it easier than the violin in a way. When I got to 12, I had to make a decision between which one I’d focus more on and I chose the violin. I did all my grades on the piano and I got the chance to play small concertos with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra so I was lucky. Is your family very musical? My sister is the piano gun of the family. She was the national concerto winner so she’s incredible in her own right. My brother played guitar but he was more interested in Holdens. He ended up running a canvas business but he loves music. Dad never played an instrument but he sang every morning to wake us up and mum also had lots of old records that I used to play all the time. So what kind of music did you listen to growing up? I loved listening to and playing music from romantic composers. A lot of the things I do are done from emotion and it’s because romantic music appealed to me when I was younger. It’s lush and it’s glorious. By the time I was 11, I was listening to The Ruts punk band and the Sex Pistols and so on. One of my all-time classics was Rock ‘N’ Roll’s Greatest Hits

PUTTING IN WORK: Fiona Pears is preparing for her nationwide tour next year and a new album.

and I bought all the Solid Gold albums. I even have them on my phone now and I’m not embarrassed about it. Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Greenpark until about seven, then we shifted into Christchurch and I went to St Martins School. I started to rebel when I was a teenager

– maybe it was my personality. I went to Linwood College for two years and then I went to several other high schools very briefly. Linwood was fantastic for me but I don’t think I wanted to be disciplined. I would bunk off class, but it’s not like I was smoking behind the toilets, I was really practicing the violin. I wanted to run riot and I did run riot so I left school at 15. I did study outside of school and my parents did everything they could. So what did you do after high school? I studied with a violin teacher at Canterbury University and he was very strict and disciplined with technique and I learnt so much. My teachers and my mother have been my grounding for my whole life. Even though I stopped regular lessons while I was a teen, I always went back to everything I was taught because it worked. I always held on to the tit-bits and gold that I’ve been given from different people over the years. When I left school, I made some money from busking outside Ballantynes with my punk hair-do, my Dr Martens and my ripped leather mini skirt.

classical concert violinist I used to drive mum and dad crazy with my hair because I kept dying it black and they’d keep taking me to the hairdresser to get it stripped time and time again. I even shaved the sides to create a mohawk – it was horrendous. When I was a teen I was falling out of love with practicing music. I did the big competitions but my heart wasn’t in it and I wasn’t practising as much as I should’ve been. By 18, I was feeling lost. I left home, I left the city and moved to Wellington. I got a part time job and had lessons with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra concert master and that was good for a while. I’ve never been good at being away from family so I came back to Christchurch and joined the CSO again. I then got into jazz and gypsy music and ended up joining a group called the Blue Swing Quartet. That was 23 years ago and that was the first time I toured around the country. So you went on and made your career from there? Well, I went through a dark stage between 20 and 24. Due to influences from the industry, I hit rock bottom really quickly. I got into a habit of drinking

all the time and I was working in bars six nights a week. I was doing what a lot of teenagers do not aware that it was going to form an addiction and become my crutch to be able to perform. I ended up in alcoholics anonymous and it saved my life. When I got into recovery I had to relearn how to live and how to play the violin in public. It was a really wonderful and an incredibly frightening experience. It took me a year to get the confidence to perform and even though I got twice as nervous, something else happened and I started writing music and that was a whole new experience. Wow what a journey, how did you manage to reach success after going through such a dark period? My parents saved my life time and time again and I say that for real. They stepped in when it was dark and went beyond what a lot of people would. Of course, all parents do whatever they can for their kids, but they’ve been amazing. I wouldn’t be where I was now without them. My parents helped me buy a house at 25 and I became a DIYer. I had an amazing time doing that then

AT EASE: Fiona with her two loves – her violin and pet dog.

I started teaching, began touring and started recording my own music. I went travelling overseas for a few years and I wrote a lot of music and made my first CD. That’s actually how I met my husband but that’s a whole different story in itself. Do tell, how did you meet your husband? I was asked to lead the band for the Hayley Westenra world tour and Ian Tilley was her musical director. So we met in New Zealand as he had flown

over from London and we did what you’re not supposed to do and hooked up on tour. That was 13 years ago so I owe Hayley and her family a big thank you. We lived in London and travelled all over the world for about seven years after that. Is it difficult being married to someone who you’re involved with professionally? It works because we don’t tell each other what to do, we try help each other. Even though we work together, we work very separately because he’s a record producer and goes back to the UK quite often. He’s got his own career as well as supporting me and playing piano in the band. I trust him implicitly and I actually prefer working with him. I like having him on stage with me and we both love music so much that if we ever have an argument, we always have music to come back to. And, of course, I think he’s hot too. Do you and Ian have a family? No, we don’t, but we have fur babies (God I hate that word). We have three of them and I want to add to the zoo but not yet because we’re doing a lot of touring next year. We haven’t

PUNK MEETS CLASSICAL: Fiona was not your typical teenager.

had children mainly due to our careers. I would adopt in a second but it’s not as easy as saying it. I feel we have a lot to give children. I have 22 students and I adore them all. I’m lucky I get to spend wonderful hours with children every week but don’t get the hassles that come with parenthood. What’s coming up for you in the near future? Next year I’m going to be doing a new album and I’m not allowed to say what it is but it’s going to be very exciting. It’s something in the pipeline that hasn’t been done before involving a lot of Christchurch and New Zealand musicians. I also have a New Zealand tour next year as well.

Out of the mouths of babes IT OCCURRED to me the other day that when little ones talk, their words come from a place of love, without judgement, and based on the pure observation of what lies before them. My girls do exactly that. I love how there’s a no-holdsbarred approach to their proclamations of love and that (for the most part) these unique little expressions tug at my heart strings like nothing I have ever known. My five-year old girl is one of those kids who says it how it is. She’s far too young to have a social filter, and when it comes to telling me how she feels, there’s no holding back. She loves to cuddle on the sofa, bury herself into my side and play the drums on my stomach. When she jumped up to sit next to me the other day, it took only a few seconds for her hands to start thrumming my puku. She found its soft, malleable texture particularly hilarious, and gleefully exclaimed: “Oh mama, your tummy is as sloppy as a slug,” and then looked up at me with complete poker face to further exclaim: “and your head is the size of a ball. I love you soooo much!” Luckily for me, I have thick (sloppy!) skin, and rather than take offence, I seek to

Melissa McDonnell

record these snippets of love and curiosity. Over the years, I have diarised some of their more colourful statements, and when I went to record this latest clanger, I rediscovered some other quotes not just from her, but from my other three girls, and thought it would be fun to share: • Three-year-old, after pulling away from a big hug: “Wow Mama, you have massive eyebrows!” • Four-year-old, after visiting the Canterbury Museum: “Mama, in the olden days, when you were a girl, did you

go and see the moas in the caves?” Me: “No, the moas died out a long, time ago – way before I was born. People hunted them for food, so much so, that they’re no longer here. They’re now extinct.” Four-year-old, after a reflective pause: “Why didn’t people just buy them at the supermarket? And why do they stink?” • Four-year-old, trying to justify not eating her leastfavourite dinner: “I can’t eat it all, because it will go all the way down to my tummy and fill it up so much that it will

push back up again and break my heart.” • Three-year old: “Please can I have some sparkly nuts?” – it took a while, but I finally translated this to mean a request for salted cashews. • Three-year old: After my first, real chat about the fact my parents had passed away, she responded with: “I am going to find a plane, fly to heaven and bring them back so I can make you feel better.” (That one made me cry). • Three-year-old, upon finishing her water: “Oh no, it’s empty.” • Four-year-old Big Sister’s response: “No it’s not, it’s just invisible.” • Three-year-old, when we drove past Hagley Park a few days after I’d played Saturday netball: “Mama, are you gonna play meatballs and Pigley Park today?” And last, but certainly not least: • Four-year-old: “Oh Mama! Look at that bug on the table – he’s dead! The poor little bug-ger” Three-year-old Little Sister: “Yes, the poor bug-ger. He’s a bug-ger coz he’s a bug, isn’t he?”. Four-year-old: “Yes, he’s a poor, dead bug-ger” From the mouths of babes, indeed.

October in the garden Get your veges growing

HOPEFULLY, THE highs and lows of spring have departed by now and the weather has become more settled. But be sure to keep an eye out for the possibility of late frosts. October is a very active month in the vegetable garden. Before planting add in copious amounts of compost to help create an ideal growing medium for newly planted seeds and seedlings. Vege plants for the summer garden can include capsicum, courgettes, cucumbers, eggplants (aubergine), peppers, pumpkin, tomatoes and watermelon. Maintain a close watch for slugs and snails that will devour young seedlings. A light side dressing with vegetable fertiliser will help young plants become well established. Water deeply when required, to encourage young plants to develop a deep root system. Preparation for your summer flowering ‘bed’ should begin in early October, including the addition of compost. Summer flowering annuals can include

alyssum, asters, cornflowers, californian poppy, cosmos, lobelia, livingston daisies, marigolds, nemesia, petunias, portulacas, phlox, salvia, sweet pea and zinnia. Spring blossoms should now be finished on pip stone fruit trees; apples, apricots, nectarines, peaches, pears and plums, with small fruit starting to form. Many of these trees have what can be described as ‘heavy post-blossom fruit drop’ and often only

5-10 per cent of their blossoms will actually become mature fruit, usually enough for a ‘heavy crop’. Apply fruit tree fertiliser at 5-6 weekly intervals. Shrubs that have flowered during the winter months, for example, azaleas and camellias may require some ‘tidy up’ pruning before new growth commences. With all shrubs, a side dressing of general garden fertiliser will encourage strong healthy growth.

A FAVOURITE time of year for many gardeners, Labour Weekend is the traditional period for planting out a full range of summer vegetables (and flowers) into a prepared garden, whether it’s in the ground or raised beds. But don’t panic if you haven’t prepared your soil for planting yet. Mix in plenty of compost into your existing soil now to a depth of 1-1.5 spade depth before you plant out. Delicious summer veggies to plant out are beans, beetroot, carrots, celery, corn, cucumber, lettuce, onions, peas, pumpkin, radish, potatoes, spinach, tomatoes and zucchini. For plants that climb or need support like peas, beans or tomatoes, always put in your support structure before you plant your seedling so as not to disturb the roots later on. A good tip is to make sure you water regularly and to a plant’s requirements, for example, more water for leafy crops such as lettuce or fruiting varieties such as tomato

SUPPLY: Raised beds are useful for growing summer veges.

and strawberries. During the early summer growing months (late October through to early December) side dress with fertiliser at 3-4 weekly intervals. Ensure you water it in well. If you have limited space but still want to grow your own, then start a container garden instead. You can grow many vegetables successfully in pots or containers, especially with the different types of dwarf or mini-varieties now available. Growing in pots is also a great way to get children involved in gardening. There are a couple of things you need to do to ensure a bumper crop. Choosing the right sized container is impor-

tant; people tend to select smaller pots, but make sure you choose a decent size. What you plant your veges in is crucial, so use good quality potting or container mixes as they contain well balanced, slow release nutrients and have moisture retaining qualities. It’s a good idea to change the soil every time you want to grow a new crop, as nutrients and water holding capabilities can get depleted. Position your pot or container in a warm sunny, north facing position, away from strong winds. Do small succession plantings of fast growing summer vegetables so you do not have them all cropping at once.

Gardening

Work in advance for Xmas With the warmer weather comes the ever-knowing awareness and understanding that Christmas is really not that far away TURN THE corner and we are almost there. Wise are those who plan and work in advance. Unfortunately, most of us wait until the last minute to work on our gardens, just before the big day arrives. Often we find the task either too big or too difficult, hence a lot of us leave it incomplete or even worse, don’t start at all. Well, here are some simple tips to improve your outdoor living areas. You can always let the cobwebs inside take care of themselves, at least they catch flies. One: If your garden is too much to handle then simplify it. Look at what plants you have. Your likes and dislikes. Too big or too small? Leaf droppers or sun blockers? The list goes on. Ascertain what has to go and get rid of them. You may be surprised at how simple things make a big difference. Two: Remember, often less is best. At this stage you may need to seek some professional advice to help keep in mind the picture you want to create. Three: If your garden and plant maintenance is high and you’re finding it hard to cope, then weed out the problem. For

AESTHETICS: Raised gardens add a point of interest.

example, it just maybe time to realise that the roses are no longer suitable. Remember you can always substitute them with an alternative plant. Four: Consider building raised gardens with timber or garden sleepers. Besides adding a point of interest, you have the added benefits of a well drained garden that is easier to maintain. You may even consider split level gardens which will add an aesthetic value to your piece of paradise. Five: Consider plants that either give off scent or produce food. This is an increasingly popular trend, with the benefits of producing organic fruit and vegetables being both healthy for

fence, or simply sitting on paved areas, decks and steps. For best effect, plan your planter by height as well as colour. You can mix annuals with a central perennial until the perennial gets well established, and in the meantime, enjoy a miniature garden rather than a miniature plant surrounded by bare earth. You can dispense with the annuals when the perennial takes over. Container gardeners can pretty much give up weeding altogether. But you don’t need to do a bit of soil maintenance from time to time, because the plants aren’t in a self renewing envi- ronment – they’re relying on you to give them nutrition and moisture. Potted plants can dry out fast. Some will need watering up to twice a day in the hotter months, particularly those in terracotta and other porous pots.

the body, good for the soul and satisfying for the pocket. Six: Make your garden as maintenance-free as possible. Consider alternatives to bark and mulch using non-organic product such as decorative stone and using a quality non-woven weed matt for weed control. Seven: Consider painting or staining timber fences, retaining walls and other wooden structures. This will give a fresh look and can be colour co-ordinated to enhance your overall look and design. Eight: If the task is too much or you need some advice call your professional landscaper for help. There may be things you haven’t considered.

GARDENING IN pots is a spectacularly rewarding and low labour hobby. Instead of battling the elements, treating tired old soil, weeding and digging frantically, you simply tip the prepared perfect potting mix into the container, follow it up with the plants, water and wait. It’s hard to go wrong. You just move the pot around until you’ve found the perfect sunny or shady spot, without disturbing the root system, because a container garden is portable. You can move it about your home, patio or garden to fill bare spots at any time of year. And best of all, when you move house, you don’t have to leave your cherished garden behind – they all shift with the furniture. Furthermore, container gardens look great anywhere – as hanging baskets on terraces and pergolas, half round containers spilling colour down a wall or

Latest and greatest Rachel Vogan looks at the new plants and fresh looks which are hitting Kiwi gardens this season SPRING IS that marvellous time of year when gardeners feel as though they’ve had a shot of adrenalin in the arm. Suddenly, the birds seem to sing more, the garden is humming with bees, and even after a back-breaking session in the garden, everything is glorious. You just want to be

outdoors. Adding to the buzz, temptation is everywhere in the shops, as they are all filled to the brim with the latest new-release plants, products, ideas and seeds. It is a dangerous zone for me and my credit card, but what is someone with a life sentence as a plantaholic going to do? Stay home?

3. PERLARGONIUM ‘BIG RED’ I have admired this Calliope geranium for years in Australia and have been eagerly awaiting its import into New Zealand. With a nice compact habit and fresh, clean, green foliage, the sprays of big bright-red flowers are awesome. It always catches your attention wherever it is planted, so put it somewhere front and centre, in full sun, for everyone to enjoy. Be careful though, as a good frost will give it a nudge in the wrong direction. However, if it’s in a pot, you can nestle it near the house over winter.

IN VOGUE: Alstroemeria Inticancha ‘Magic White’.

1. IBERIS UMBELLATA ‘PRETTY’ AND ‘CONFETTI’ How gorgeous does this new candytuft series look? The white ones have stood the test of time, but now we can add real drama with new bold colours. These two new ones are a mix of whites and bold shades of pink and cerise, making these perennials well worth seeking. Once established, they cope well with dry soils, and the delicate-looking flowers are very robust, covering the crown of the plant for many months. They suit a sunny spot, but can deal with a little bit of shade. They are ideal options for tubs and pots.

I don’t think so! That said, I will have to try to restrain myself from buying one of each of these beauties after seeing the line-up for this season, which is much harder than it sounds! So, arm yourself with a copy of the latest Kiwi Gardener and get into the shops, before all these new goodies go – but be quick!

2. STACHYS ‘BELLA GRIGIO’ Check out this charming perennial, with its flashy, elegant, velvety-looking, silver foliage that is irresistibly tactile. Adding to its allure, the variety of lamb’s ears has lovely tallish spikes of pink flowers that appear in summer. This is a plant that can add so much contrast and drama to the garden. What’s even better is that it is hardy and as tough as old boots, so once established, you can leave it alone. This perennial will certainly appeal to those who like a mix of foliage and flowers – and will certainly find its way into my garden.

‘Lemon Ice’.

4. OSTEOSPERMUM 3D ‘LEMON ICE’ AND ‘YELLOW’ Daisy lovers are going to find it hard to walk past these two new doubleflowering varieties of osteospermum. The subtle yet striking ‘Lemon Ice’ caught my attention as soon as I saw it. This plant will suit those who want a subtle tone of flowers for months on end. For those who are brave enough to plant hot, sunny ‘Yellow’ (a favourite of mine), this plant will hum with bright summer tones until the first frosts limit the flower growth at the end of autumn. With short, compact growth habits, these are both good container options. Full sun and good potting mix is all that’s required to get the maximum wow effect.

5. PETUNIA ‘MOONLIGHT ECLIPSE’ Can the world have too many petunias? I don’t think so. These reliable bloomers just aim to please, with branch after branch of blooms throughout the warmer months. This new dark-navy beauty is edged with vintage shades of lime, which just ooze old-world charm and elegance. I can see these planted in terracotta urns, lining entranceways, on patios, or in front of a fence on a sunny street frontage. The trick to getting the best out of them is to water deeply once a week and sprinkle fertiliser on the soil at planting time. Petunias will come back again next year if planted in a sheltered spot.

6. CRAZYTUNIA ‘TERRACOTTA’ With big, frilly, blousy blooms, this sun-loving petunia hybrid is set to light up patios and sunny courtyards with its sunset tones that hint of warm nights and long days. Team it up with something bold to really show it off.

An increasing demand and interest in native plants has resulted in the expansion of The Native Plant Nursery into Christchurch. Originally the Taupo Native Plant Nursery, the company has been growing steadily since 1961 when it first began supplying native plants for reserves, forests and national parks. The Marshlands area of Christchurch has long been associated with plants and market gardens, so it is the ideal venue for a niche business like the Native Plant Nursery. With large scale landscaping contracts, regeneration projects and three nurseries nationwide, expansion southwards has brought 98 years of collective native plant experience within the national team to our doorstep. Comprising a wholesale nursery complex and a 10 acre property to raise plants, the Native Plant Nursery

7. BIDENS LIGHT SERIES Whenever I think of bidens, I sort of yawn . . . oh no, not another yellow bidens! Yes, they are marvellous plants for a bright sunny spot, and they cope with intense heat and sporadic watering, but how many does one need? However, these new ones have really caught my eye. They look like wee rippers, and vary totally from the old-fashioned sunny yellow hybrids. The clean white ‘Moonlight’ just twinkles with starry white flowers. ‘Fairylight’ is a pretty two-toned pink, and the deep ‘Firelight’ is a rich magenta one. These plants are super quick to establish into a mound that keeps producing bloom after bloom.

‘Fairylight’.

is basically a plant factory. As well as mainstream natives, there is ample scope to produce other plants of interest and by growing on-site, the home gardener reaps the benefit of lower prices.

While best known for eco-sourced natives, the nurseries are branching out, literally, into edible varieties, bedding plants and fruit trees. So expect to see Heuchera and camellias thriving alongside raspberry canes and coprosmas! In addition to developing a flourishing native plant outlet in Christchurch, the company’s other long term goal is to become involved in community education projects with local schools and organisations. So why not revisit the green zone of Marshlands and discover a gardening destination that’s new, natural and native!

CTV News is broadcast live on Plains FM (96.9 FM), 5.30-6pm, weekdays, and is also live-streamed online at www.plainsfm.org.nz. CTV news can also be watched live or on demand at www.ctv.co.nz.

Plains FM gives young people a voice The Star continues its monthly profile of Plains FM. This week we find out how radio can be used as an education tool ANOTHER EXCITED group of students arrived at their local community access radio station, Plains FM, with dog-eared scripts in hand and character voices at the ready. They’ve been working with The School for Young Writers and drama teacher Stephanie Frewen to write and rehearse an original radio play and now it’s time to get behind the microphone and record it. In the last 12 months, more than 60 children from nine Canterbury schools have had a fantastic radio play experience. “Writing for the ear is a specific skill,” said the school’s director Dr Glynn Strange. “Groups of students work collaboratively and the results are then shared with families, in classrooms and with the wider community.” A blank sheet of paper and pure imagination is where the process starts and, thanks to the final editing and sound effects provided by Plains FM staff, the plays have been widely admired. Some have even been preserved for all time in Nga Taonga Sound and Vision’s national archive.  

Budding writers are just part of the mix of students getting behind the microphone in a structured way. Media studies students from Cashmere High School have been on air since 1999. Their fortnightly show Something Millennial allows students from a variety of agegroups to get on the air and put forward the teenage view of politics, music, showbiz and whatever else takes their fancy. Media teacher Richard James believes the experience is a useful one. “The show builds important confidence and presentation skills, with some students also learning how to record audio and run the on-air studio. Many kids go on to do broadcasting degrees or other tertiary training and Plains plays an important part in getting them there,” he said. The station has also created a practical unit for year 5 to 8 teachers that sets out how to work with children to write and produce a radio show. As well as the exciting experience of recording, it provides an opportunity to develop children’s writing around a purpose and is excellent for extending their oral

presentation skills and fostering great collaboration. “Any part of the curriculum can be presented on radio and I’m really keen for children to learn that this medium is so much more than just jokes, competitions, music and ads. Real voices, personal experiences, values and class work can all be shared on air,” says Nicki Reece, Plains FM station manager. “It’s amazing how the quieter children can shine in this environment and it can also be a great outlet for children who speak languages other than English to stay connected to their culture and to

be highlighted in a very positive way.” The Sri Lankan Language and Culture School is a case in point. It was established in Christchurch to disseminate knowledge about Sri Lankan cultural heritage, Sinhala language and literature. Samadhi – Voice of Sri Lanka is the radio show produced and hosted by the students of the school. It helps young Kiwi Sri Lankan students to discover their cultural identity, teaches respect for other cultures and helps develop self-esteem through participation. Is radio as a medium still

relevant these days for the younger generation? “Definitely,” says Reece emphatically. “It’s just that the delivery mechanism has changed to include online formats in the form of live streaming and podcasts – which we do as well. The communication concepts and skills are still exactly the same.” • The School for Young Writers airs at various times. Cashmere High School – Something Millennial airs at 4pm every second Monday. Samadhi – Voice of Sri Lanka airs the third Saturday of the month. www.plainsfm.org.nz

Theatre/Arts First big part for actress Legally Blonde star to play her role model „ By Georgia O’ConnorHarding ELLIE NEAL hasn’t even graduated from drama school and she’s already set to play the lead role in one of the city’s biggest productions of the summer. The Toi Whakaari: New Zealand Drama School student has landed her dream role as Elle Woods in The Court Theatre’s production of Legally Blonde: The Musical. Neal, 20, will travel from Wellington to the city on Sunday and stay until the end of January to play a character she considers a role model. “I remember seeing the movie and being like I want to be Reese Witherspoon . . . I want to be Elle,” she said. Neal said Elle Wood’s focus and drive are characteristics she can relate to. “I think she is such a gorgeous character because she is really bubbly and sweet but she has got this inner strength,” she said. Based on the original film, Legally Blonde: The Musical tells the story of sorority girl Elle Woods who enrols in Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend Warner. “I think it is a positive message for young women because towards the end she is following her heart, going for her career and helping other people,” Neal said. It won’t be Neal’s first time in the city after she travelled down about three years ago to take part in the Christchurch International Musical Theatre Summer School. “Christchurch has got a really amazing energy to it . . . all

these pop-up stalls and things are happening, it seems like an exciting place to be,” she said. Neal also completed an internship at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in West Hollywood earlier this year. She said the most important lesson she learnt overseas was to show vulnerability on the stage. “Often I am not the most outgoing person. I can be quite shy and reserved sometimes . . . my teacher taught me to take what you are feeling into the scene.” Originally from Hampshire, United Kingdom, Neal moved with her family to Wellington in 2006. While calling New Zealand her “home-base,” Neal said she aspired to go back to England and make it big on London’s West End. But for now, she will start out her career on her first professional show working with well-known faces in the musical theatre industry, including Ali Harper, Cameron Douglas and Roy Snow.  • Legally Blonde: The Musical will run from November 26 to January 21. To book tickets, go to https://courttheatre. org.nz RISING STAR: Neal played the role of Sophie in Mamma Mia! as an amateur actor with the Wellington Musical Theatre.

Monumental might of Moscow „ By Mike Yardley STROLLING ACROSS the nuggety cobbles of Red Square, tromped on by troops, tanks and muscular military parades, you can feel the weight of history. Given the current geo-political state of affairs, I was somewhat apprehensive about tripping through Russia as a first-timer, but it was made decidedly effortless and disarming, by joining a Trafalgar guided journey to Moscow and St Petersburg. And in a city of so many surprises, Moscow not only felt safe, exciting and hospitable, but it belied the bleak and brutalist pre-conception I had about the Russian capital. It’s the monumental might and splendour of Moscow that struck me, a visually enthralling power city of serious statement architecture. When soaking up the atmosphere of Red Square, my Trafalgar experience delivered two juicy bites of the cheery – savouring it by day and by night. Moscow loves its illuminations and Red Square takes on an extra-theatrical sense of place, after dark. Flanking the entire length of the eastern side of the square is GUM department store, a stunningly gorgeous Louvre-like building, lustily twinkling in fairy lights. It’s like the Louvre of shopping, with a staggering array of eateries and high-end retail. The square’s western side is crowned by the Kremlin clock

HEFTY: The world’s largest cannon sits outside the Kremlin. It weighs 39 tonnes.

HIGH END: The GUM department store in Red Square.

tower and majestically curtained by the turreted red stone walls of the Kremlin, with Lenin’s Mausoleum nestled at its base. This is where the waxy, embalmed body of the Communist Party founder has been mawkishly displayed since 1924, although as my insightful Trafalgar local specialist, Vera, remarked – most Muscovites find it embarrassing and want it gone. “Many people don’t even think it’s Lenin’s body, but a lookalike wax work,” added Vera. Maybe that’s why the po-faced guards give you a stiff prod if you stop and linger too long, when viewing Lenin. And you certainly can’t take photos. At the northern end of Red Square, the State Historical Museum offers a heady foray into Russian history, from the last ice age and demise of the mammoth, right up to the 19th-cen-

tury. It’s chocca with historical curios, like the giant-size boots, bigger enough to hide a small child, that were worn by locals to wade through the swamp in Peter the Great’s day. But the biggest frisson in Red Square is first clapping your eyes on Moscow’s most emblematic of landmarks, St Basil’s Cathedral. Constructed in 1561 to celebrate Ivan the Terrible’s defeat of the Khan of Kazan, a critical victory which sealed Moscow’s regional supremacy, the multi-coloured elaborate designs of the onion domes make the heart sing. Interestingly, my local guide, Vera, made a point of demystifying one of the world’s great urban legends that purports Ivan the Terrible ordered the architects of St Basil’s to be blinded upon completion of their work, so the masterpiece couldn’t be replicated elsewhere. Apparently, no such thing happened. When you peruse a street map of Moscow, an impressively ordered pattern of concentric circles, fan out from the fortified hill in the heart of the city. Welcome to the Kremlin. Vera guided me past the world’s largest cannon, cast in 1586, and weighing in at 39 tonnes. Originally intended as a powerful weapon in the Kremlin’s defences, it’s never been used. I ogled the domed

LANDMARKS: (Top) – Red Square at night, Moscow loves its illuminations. (Above) – Vladimir Putin’s presidential office.

presidential offices from where Vladimir Putin rules the roost. Crawling with police officers, they’ll blow their whistles and bark at you if you dare to stray from the designated path. The Kremlin houses a variety of distinctive cathedrals but the grand-daddy of them all is the Cathedral of the Assumption. Built in 1475, Ivan the Terrible was crowned Emperor here in 1547. When Napoleon seized Moscow in 1812, the church became a stable for his horses, while his soldiers snatched the glittering chandeliers. Russian Cossacks finally caught up with the lightfingered Frenchies and they’re still proudly dangling from the ceiling. Church services only resumed here in 1990, after Lenin’s rise to power in 1918. But the star attraction is the Kremlin Palace Armoury, the 19th-century museum purpose-built to house the nation’s jaw-dropping stash of gold, silver, arms and imperial attire. The standouts are the nine Faberge eggs on display (each val-

ued at over NZ$20 million) and the sumptuous fleet of gold state coaches spanning the centuries. It’s a staggering trove of treasure, underscoring Moscow’s sure-bet ability to seduce you with her majestic charms.

Fashion

Looking the part on race day Annabelle Dick looks at race day trends AS THE New Zealand Cup and Show Week approaches, now is a good time to start planning that race day outfit. This is Canterbury’s biggest fashion event on the calendar so ladies start organising your look to get ahead of the queues. Here’s some things to consider when planning this year’s cup day look What to wear: Loose-fitting, slinky spaghetti-strap dresses look good on almost any one. While simple, they scream chic. These dresses will be a common sight on the field this year but how you choose to accessorise it will make all the difference. Slip dresses are a good base so you can go all out and be creative in other ways. Pair with some lace-up heels and statement earrings for a sleek look. Full-length jumpsuits have made a hard and fast comeback and will undoubtedly be a strong contender for the outfit of choice. Opt for a jumpsuit in on-trend hues, such as fiesta red or buttercup yellow, to really stand out. This year you can’t go wrong with hues of grey-blue, pastel pink, nude tones and bright red. Accessories: Personally, I like to keep my accessories very minimal. I’m not big on colour when it comes to accessorising because the chances of me wearing something brightly-coloured again is pretty slim. Instead, I keep it low-key with metallics, nude tones and pastels. If you’re wearing florals, choose

a subtle colour from your dress for your accessories. More subtle colours will bring your outfit together so think about muted tones like beige, grey, white or metallic. If you are wearing a block colour, you can create contrast with your shoes, bag and hat. Mustard yellow can look fab with white accessories and, if you’re scared of colour, a bright polish on your toes can really finish an outfit nicely. A clutch is essential – you will need somewhere to put your lippy if your day involves hours of race-watching and drinking bubbles. And you’ll also need somewhere to put all those winning tickets. Shoes: Your bag and shoes don’t have to match, just think about how they look in a tone sense and dress accordingly. This year I’ve been really big on block heels. They look slick and they’re oh-so comfy, which makes them a perfect cup day pick. Each year at the races, I see women struggle in sky-high stilettos and I feel second-hand embarrassment

as I watch them on their tiptops to avoid digging their heels into the muddy grass. Don’t be her this year. Alongside block heels, mules look good with almost anything and they are just as comfortable. But if you’re a bit sceptical about ditching the pumps, opt for lace-up heels. They’re a great statement if your dress is more nondescript and needs a pick-me-up. Headwear: The fascinator has become one of the hottest items worn by women to the races – mainly because it’s a smaller component of an outfit and it usually comes with a smaller price tag. Fascinators allow creativity and can add a lot of volume to a look. Whether you’re a first time attendee or a devoted race-goer, definitely make sure you’re rocking a head piece this year. Opt for a statement head piece like those seen on, and made by, Christchurch fashion queen Mary Outram. Check out maryoutram.com to buy one of her lush, hand-made crowns and fascinators.

HEADWEAR: Make sure you’re flaunting a headpiece at New Zealand Cup & Show Week like these fascinators made by Mary Outram. PHOTOS: MARCUS NEE/ MAKE UP: KM MAKEUP

„ By Gordon Findlater A GOOD cup of coffee and a round of golf at his favoured Tai Tapu Golf Club were two priorities for Henry Nicholls after returning home from India this week. He would much rather still be in the subcontinent helping the Black Caps in their one-day series against India, but after being sent home following the team’s 3-0 test series loss, the top order batsman is happy to be back on the domestic scene for Canterbury. The domestic cricket season begins with the opening round of the four-day Plunket Shield competition on Saturday. Nicholls will have the first chance to stake his claim for a spot in the Black Caps squad for the home test series against Pakistan when Canterbury host Northern Districts at Hagley Oval. Coach Gary Stead isn’t complaining about having

Nicholls’ services. “I know he’s disappointed about not being there, but this is his chance to come back to his roots and show why he made the New Zealand team in the first place,” said Stead. Twelve months ago, Nicholls was looking to build on his impressive beginning on the domestic cricket scene and, after piling on the runs, soon enough found himself up for national selection. “It all happened pretty quickly. It’s been a really exciting challenge playing South Africa in South Africa against a very

strong attack, and then in India just a few weeks later, playing against three spinners,” said Nicholls. The 24-year-old has highlighted consistency as his biggest thing to build on for this summer and, if he can put together the kind of innings he produced this time last year on a consistent basis, there’s no reason why he won’t be back at Hagley when the Black Caps play Pakistan on November 17. The first session of the Canterbury v Northern Districts four-day match begins at Hagley, at 10.30am, Saturday.

Young union star switches to league „ By Gordon Findlater CANTERBURY’S top secondary schools’ rugby player has switched codes, signing on with NRL side South Sydney Rabbitohs. Cruz Topai-Aveai has been a standout player in the UC Championship first XV competition over the last three years. He helped lead Shirley Boys’ High School to two consecutive grandfinal appearances and was the co-winner of the competition’s player of the year award this season. The 17-year-old’s union career moved quickly – he only started playing the sport at under-12 level and made a Canterbury rep team in his first season. His transition to league has been even faster. His first taste of the code came late last year. Topai-Aveai’s management company, Pacific Sports Management, which is based in Australia, received interest from the Rabbitohs after seeing footage of him playing for a Canterbury under-16 rugby union rep team. Before he knew it, he was on his way to Sydney. “My first game of league was in a trial at a week-long camp in Australia in December. I was

then invited to another Rabbitohs camp in January in Auckland with some of New Zealand’s top players,” said Topai-Aveai. He made a big impression on the Rabbitohs’ scouts at the Auckland camp, winning the MVP in leadership award. The decision to now turn his attention to league hasn’t been an easy one. Topai-Aveai accomplishment’s in the 15-man game also had the Crusaders’ academy hungry to get their hands on him. “It was really difficult actually. I spoke with my family a lot and I just felt like there was a massive opportunity across the ditch in league. I had to think, would I rather go and play in the under20s competition over there or play club rugby here?” Former Kiwis coach Frank Endacott, who now works as a player agent, believes more top players from the UC Championship could choose to take the under-20s path. Endacott has recently signed 17-year-old Timaru Boys’ High School star Ofa Manuofetoa, who is now joining the Newcastle Knights. “The pathways for younger fellas in rugby league at the moment is tremendous and they sometimes don’t get the same

LEAGUE-BOUND: Cruz Topai-Aveai (with ball) who is about to start a career with NRL club South Sydney Rabbitohs. PHOTO: KAREN CASEY amount of opportunities in rugby union because of the number of players playing the game,” said Endacott. When it came to talking to family, Topai-Aveai also had some inside knowledge on chasing a league career. His cousin Jamayne Isaako currently plays for the Brisbane Broncos Holden Cup team and has previously had a stint with the Cronulla Sharks under-20s. Another key part in the decision was down to the way he was

received by his soon-to-be-new club. “When I first went over, they were really welcoming and supportive. Even the NRL coach (Michael Maguire), he came and spoke to me personally while I was over there and said he wanted me at the club. He even calls me at home, so that’s showed me how much they wanted me and was a big part of my decision.” After creating a catalogue of great memories in union, he’s now looking forward to doing

the same in the 13-man game. “One of the biggest memories in my career is probably beating Christchurch Boys’ High School in the semi-final last year – that was massive. Then doing a similar job against Christ’s College to make this year’s final, they were both huge games,” said TopaiAveai. The past 12 months have been a huge learning curve for the hard running No 8 adjusting to the skill set required in league. “It’s quite different running back 10m every time someone’s tackled. Even the tackle technique is completely different to the rugby I’d been playing.” The process seems to be working. The second rower recently represented the South Island Scorpions at the New Zealand Rugby League youth tournament in Rotorua. He was one of just two South Island players named in the under-17 tournament team after the Scorpions finished runners-up to Akarana. Topai-Aveai is in full preparation mode ahead of his move to Sydney on November 8. He has recently signed out of school and is dedicating his time ahead of the move to being in the best shape possible.

Luxury, practicality in big Mercedes SUV „ By Ross Kiddie PROJECTIONS for New Zealand’s new car sales in 2016 and 2017 are mind-boggling. Some analysts are suggesting that around 140,000 new cars will be sold here this year, with up to 150,000 next year. That’s on the back of a constant increase in sales since the global financial crisis ended. Putting that into context, in 2008 new car sales here peaked at just 73,400 units. The manufacturers are generally happy with the new trend, and all agree it is the popularity of the sport utility market which is driving up demand. There’s a host of SUVs in our market, and they cater for all manner of budgets. If you have a bit of extra cash to spend and need a seven-seater, MercedesBenz has the GLS series which starts at $139,000 and ends $100,000 above that. In between there are two other variants listing at $160,000 and $198,000. Each variant is determined by engine size and type. The test car was the entry-level variant, and it gets a 3-litre, turbocharged V6 diesel; for an extra $21,000 you can get the same vehicle with a host of extra AMG bits and increased safety specification, a 4.7-litre petrol variant sits above that, while the range tops out with a 5.5-litre V8 with full AMG kit. Even in standard form the GLS is a pretty smart piece of machinery, all variants have the MercedesBenz 4Matic four-wheeldrive system, and have an in-cabin structure which easily caters for seven occupants in comfort. The GLS is a large SUV, it stretches nearly 5m and feels big to drive, I’m not saying it is awkward, but you sit tall off the road and it does test the inner-city metered car park. But, saying that, it does have all of the park assist features and cameras which make that mission a lot easier than it sounds. And the GLS feels

spritely. I find it amazing how so much power can be gleaned from European engines, yet at the same time they don’t tax our fossil fuel reserves. The important figures go something like this – 190kW and 620Nm of torque while fuel usage is rated at just 7.6l/100km (37mpg). • Price – MercedesBenz GLS 350d, $139,000 • Dimensions – Length, 5130mm; width, 1934mm; height, 1850mm • Configuration – V6, four-wheel-drive, 2987cc, 190kW, 620Nm, nine-speed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 7.8sec • Fuel usage – 7.6l/100km

With the high torque figure, and the low area in which it is developed (1600rpm-2400rpm), the GLS is quick under acceleration, it will launch to 100km/h from a standstill in 7.8sec and will make a 4.1sec 80km/h to 120km/h highway overtake. On the subject of fuel usage, the trip computer was constantly listing around 9l/100km (31mpg) during testing time with 7l/100km (40mpg) available instantaneously at 100km/h, the rev counter pointing to a very lazy 1500rpm. Not that the engine is lazy, it works freely and disguises well the traditional diesel throb. Power is transferred through a nine-speed conventional SPACIOUS: A large load space sits beneath the rear door.

automatic gearbox, and with the constant supply of ratios the engine is kept well within its preferred power bands. Response to throttle request is instant and fluid, there is little gear change detection, and the engine drive process is well organised. Considering the big GLS weighs in excess of twotonne, all of these factors are even more remarkable. There are also several drive modes that the driver can dial in to sustain varying conditions. Most are to glean grip on unsealed surfaces and undulating terrain, but there’s also a sport mode for when tight sealed road challenges are presented. I took the test car on an inland route though to Loburn, and while some of the corners were a handling test the GLS responded with much dignity. I used the sport suspension settings which were fit for the purpose, body balance is well contained, and the steering is strongly loaded for turn-in feedback. The GLS in this form is fitted with 20in wheels and tyres which are factored for on and offroad surfaces. Even considering the higher grade models have wheels 21in and 22in respectively, the GLS in standard form isn’t undertyred, it feels secure on the road, grip and stability are well engineered into the vehicle. Given its heritage, it’s not surprising the GLS is a premium vehicle, it is beautifully built and exudes comfort. It can also be optioned to suit buyers’ preference in terms of family needs and demands, the option list is extensive so that all who travel in the vehicle can do so in style, and in a fashion where it is far from a hardship.

Show Homes - the ultimate way to shop around In Christchurch and the surrounding rural districts we are blessed with an extensive array of very good quality show homes. Building companies build show homes to demonstrate their workmanship, display innovative design ideas and present a snapshot into a new and luxurious lifestyle featuring all the latest in materials, fittings and fixtures. A show home can inspire you in a way nothing else can. You can absorb the ambiance they present, admire the innovative techniques, new materials and technology all in one place, under a roof that you may just select for your new home. At a show home you can ask questions, take notes and compare them to other builders’ presentations. You don’t have to visualise or imagine full scale from a photo in a glossy, you can simply see at a glance, often instinctively, features you like, things you would avoid and clever innovation that you never would have thought of. Best of all you will see the building

GET A GREAT GARAGE OR GARDEN SHED

MAKE A HEADBOARD

GOOD AS NEW

ON DECK

For the price of some simple industrial shelving and a few handy plastic storage crates, you can have the garage or garden shed of your dreams - perfectly tidy with all your tools and other paraphernalia easily accessible. Get the family involved and make sure you throw out anything that’s old, broken or simply isn’t used any more.

Licensed Agent REAA 2008

Breathe new life into an old or battered piece of furniture by applying a fresh coat of colour. You could have fun using various contrasting knobs for a drawer set, but having them all the same colour looks sleek and sophisticated too.

CHEERY CHAIRS

Brighten up ordinary wooden chairs with a lick of paint and some bright, beautiful tie-on cushions for extra comfort. The fabric needn’t be expensive - check out your local craft superstore for a selection of budget materials and let your imagination do the rest of the work.

ON THE TILES

If your bathroom tiles are looking dull and shabby it may just be a case of getting a grout pen and freshening up all the lines between them. This is the type of project you can do for next to nothing while achieving a stunning result that’s truly satisfying. Dull tiles may benefit from a good clean with ceramic cook-top cleaner, which removes grime without excessive scouring.

companies’ attention to detail, from design, construction and finish through to interior decor, outdoor living and landscaping. 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, future-proofing, ongoing maintenance and long term returns. So what are you waiting for? Check out our maps, grab a notepad and pencil and begin the exciting project of building your own home.

Even a relatively inexperienced DIYer could tackle this clever headboard - it can be as simple or as involved as you like. Imagine it embellished with wall stickers or stencils, or painted in black and white stripes or multicoloured squares. This piece has the potential to be a veritable work of art, so get out those tools and get going! Spring’s here so why not give that old favourite deckchair a new lease on life using a pretty, romantic fabric. Team it with an equally floral cushion for a garden tableau that’s ready and waiting for the sun to arrive.

SPRUCE UP THE SPARE ROOM

Just because a bedroom isn’t in everyday use, that doesn’t mean it should become a dumping place for excess furniture and other bits and bobs. If you give yours a lovely makeover you might be more inspired to keep it tidy and ready at any time for unexpected arrivals. Spare rooms can be a great place for experimenting with colour schemes that are a little too bold or exotic for other parts of the house.

WINDOW WONDERS

Repainting window frames can be a pesky and painful job but in the long run it contributes to the overall condition of your house so it does need to be addressed. Even if you spend a weekend a month doing one window or set of windows, you’ll get to the end eventually - albeit just in time to start again!
