Dams could resolve water concerns „„ By Gabrielle Stuart A NEW dam scheme could help protect Christchurch’s dwindling water supply – but charging residents for the water they use is still being considered. Under the scheme, dams would be built on streams off the Waimakariri River, designed to store floodwater in winter and release it into the aquifers over summer. It is one potential solution to Canterbury’s water problems, as the water levels in the city’s aquifers have dropped to record lows. Water charges are also being looked at to try and reduce household water use, which takes the biggest portion of water drawn out of the aquifers. A working group has been tasked to look at potential solutions and report back to the Christchurch West Melton Water Zone Committee. Working group chairman Chris Kelliher said there was a lot more work to do on the scheme before he could say if it was the best or most cost-effective option. But he believed creating dams or water storage ponds was a good solution. “The idea is to harvest water out of the river in the winter when there’s a good flow and it’s not being utilised, and then put it back in aquifers in the summer,” he said. Similar schemes have been successful in Australia, and one is being piloted in Hinds in South Canterbury. •Turn to page 3

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK A HEARTBREAKING situation for the Matthews family (page 1). Their son, Toby, is deaf and will soon also be blind. Imagine it, the last time you see your mother or father’s face. The last time you will see a bright full moon. But Toby is a lively chap and he wants to head to Africa to help his dad build a school for children in Zimbabwe. Let’s see if we can get them there folks. Details about a Givealittle page are in the article. It is a bit of a shock to the system to realise how dire our water situation is. It is actually at the point where authorities are looking at charging for water, and also looking at the feasibility of building a dam to store floodwater in winter and release it into the aquifers (page 1). And it is the show that everyone is raving about. The big pink bus has rolled into town and our reviewer had one heck of a good time at Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Check it out on page 21.

At a Glance THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

VIRTUAL DINOSAUR EXPERIENCE

This week in history saw the first wool cargo shipped to London from Lyttelton on March 27, 1856. It travelled via Auckland. On March 28, 1981, the new South Brighton Bridge was opened. On April 1, 1903, Sydenham, Linwood and St Albans amalgamated with the city to form greater Christchurch. On the same day in 1915, the first regular supply of electricity from Lake Coleridge was received in Christchurch; in 1932, New Regent St was opened; in 1949 the Sign of the Takahe was opened; and in 1979 the Lyttelton Rd tunnel became toll-free.

Kids will be able to wander with dinosaurs in Ouruhia Reserve until the end of June. The city council has created an app which gives you a virtual magical park experience. It’s proved popular in the reserve, along with Wycola Park and Cypress Gardens Reserve. Due to its popularity, the city council decided to extend the experience. Using the app, kids can explore the fantasy world and herd kittens or come face to face with a tyrannosaurus rex. A new game with aliens has been added.

News Letter tells of rescue „„ By Gabrielle Stuart THE FAMILY of former SAS soldier Steve Askin, who died fighting the Port Hills fire, has received a very special letter – from a woman who says he saved her life. The woman was one of about 70 guests at the InterContinental Hotel in Kabul in 2011 when it was taken over by heavily armed Taliban fighters wearing suicide vests. Steve and seven other SAS soldiers fought for five hours to rescue the guests. The woman, who has asked not to be named, wrote to the Askin family after hearing of Steve’s death. Steve was killed in a helicopter crash last month while helping to fight the Port Hills fires. The woman wrote to Steve’s family about her experience in the hotel that night: “I had hidden in a cupboard for six hours, and when I heard the insurgents going through the rooms below I realised that there was a high possibility I might not get out alive. I never expected anyone to come in and save us, and no words can express the gratitude that I felt. Steve was a hero,” she wrote. Steve had his ear shot off in the battle that night, but kept fighting to rescue the guests. Eleven people were killed by the Taliban gunmen before the

In Brief STATUE CLEANING Almost $2000 has been spent on cleaning weeds from the Antony Gormley statue in the Avon River by the city council. Acting head of parks Brent Smith said the artwork is checked and cleared twice a week during summer and winter but from autumn to spring this is increased to three times a week. He said it’s also cleaned reactively after storms. Each visit costs $33.81 and so far the 53 visits made to date total $1791. One road cone and one vest have also been removed.

ATTACK: Steve Askin was one of eight NZ SAS soldiers who rescued guests from the InterContinental Hotel in Kabul during a 2011 Taliban attack. Below: Steve and Elizabeth Askin

battle ended the next morning. The woman was eventually rescued by a NZ SAS soldier, but in his battle dress she was not sure if it was Steve or one of the others who fought with him. Steve was later awarded a NZ Gallantry Star for his bravery in the battle. Steve’s father, Paul Askin, said the letter meant a lot to the family. He said his son had been different after that battle, as know-

ing he had saved lives gave him a lot of satisfaction. “After that battle he felt a real sense of completion, that this is what all the training and the years of hard work equipped him to do,” he said. He said it had been hard for the family to see Steve go into dangerous situations as an SAS soldier, but it was something he was good at. “I always thought if I was a hostage being held somewhere like that I would want boys like him coming to my rescue. Somebody’s kid has got to do it,”

he said. Steve retired from the army in 2013 to spend more time with his family, and began working as a helicopter pilot. Paul Askin said the family had been inundated with letters and messages from people who knew Steve. “We’re really proud of our son,” he said. He said Steve’s wife, Elizabeth, and children Isabelle, 7, and Bowie, 4, were missing him hugely, but had a lot of support from family and friends.

Dams could resolve water woes average of 357-litres of water per person per day, compared with 273-litres of water in Auckland where there are household water charges. Environmental planner and groundwater expert, Bryan Jenkins, said he believed the plan would work. He said Canterbury’s aquifers usually only replenished over winter, because the soil dried up

PARADE FUNDS THe city council may set aside future funding for the Santa Parade – but there is still no funding for this year’s parade. The parade trust reserves were used to cover last year’s parade, after the city council cut funding from $85,000 to $60,000. A crowdfunding campaign has been launched to help save the parade, at www.givealittle.co.nz/org/ santaparadechristchurch000 ORCHARD CAMPAIGN A crowdfunding campaign to raise $60,000 for the Otakaro Orchard project by 8pm Friday was three-quarters of the way towards its goal as of yesterday. At noon yesterday, the campaign had attracted 384 pledges with about $45,000 committed. The project, led by the Food Resilience Network, involves creating an edible park, cafe and local food information centre on Cambridge Tce, next to the former PGC building site.

Chinwag Eathai, on Victoria St, will be transformed into a Rockstar Pizza. The restaurant used to be based on High St, until the February 22, 2011, earthquake, when it moved to Victoria St. It is expected to reopen as Rockstar Pizza on Monday.

so much over summer that any rain would evaporate from the soil before it could trickle through to the aquifers. If a pond or dam was built in the right place, water could be released steadily so the ground stayed moist and water could gradually soak through. But even if dams were built, he believed water charges would still be needed.

•From page 1 He said the working group was initially focused on recharging the aquifers, but would also look at what could be done to reduce water use. He said water charges were still “on the table” and likely to be considered in the future. “We have to look at using water more wisely,” he said. Christchurch residents use an

Toby already knows sign language, but they are teaching him finger spelling – and he was already begging for a guide dog, Mr Matthews said. But he said going out at night could be terrifying for Toby, as he had lost night vision, and navigating was becoming frustrating. “He comes home most days with cuts or bruises, because he’s walked into a pole or tripped over something,” he said. He said the hardest part was hearing Toby talk about his big dreams for the future, and not knowing what to tell him. “As his vision gets worse you realise those dreams he has, he won’t be able to do.”

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart TOBY MATTHEWS has always had big dreams – he wants to be a firefighter, or a builder like his dad. But his dreams may now be impossible. Toby is deaf, and learned last year that he is also going blind. He has Usher syndrome, a very rare and incurable genetic condition. He was born deaf, but now his vision is tunnelling, so the area he can see is slowly getting smaller. His parents, Logan and Meg Matthews, said they had no idea what the condition was when they were called by a doctor last year, and told their son was going blind. “We were told to Google it,” Mr Matthews said. Because it is so rare, they did not know how long Toby’s vision might last. “There is no time frame, no answers, no way to fix it. Which I think is the hardest thing, not knowing how it is going to end, or when,” he said. They are now trying to

East side youth at risk Central city to „„ By Bridget Rutherford YOUTH IN the eastern suburbs are more likely to have self-harmed, suffered anxiety, depression and low self-esteem than others in the country. The Prime Minister’s Youth Mental Health Project’s recent report showed out of the six areas assessed across the country, east Christchurch youth were most at risk. Data from three Christchurch schools showed 36 per cent had high anxiety or depression, 28 per cent had self-harmed, 43 per cent suffered low self-esteem and 36 per cent lacked a sense of belonging. Forty-three per cent lacked feeling safe at school, while 18 per cent suffered moderate to severe bullying. They were the highest in all categories, when compared with Northland, West Auckland, Hawke’s Bay, Lower Hutt and Invercargill. Community, youth and child services provider, St John of God Waipuna health and well-being manager Mohammad Zareei, said the figures were not surprising. He said they had clients as

young as 10 who were anxious to leave the house as a result of the earthquakes. There were “never enough” resources to cope with the four referrals they received a week, he said. “It’s not something we can fix by putting a plaster on it. If there is an issue in east Christchurch, it belongs to Christchurch. It’s not just the east.”

Linwood College principal Richard Edmundson said the earthquakes had “heightened” some youths’ vulnerability. “Do I think about it in the middle of the night? Absolutely,” he said. “It’s unfortunately not surprising because logically that’s what we’d expect and post-disaster research had let us know this could be the case.”

„„ By Bridget Rutherford FREE WIRELESS internet will be rolled out in the central city over the next six months – and it is expected to draw more people in and boost business. The city council, in collaboration with Canterbury Transport Operation Centre, is working to offer free wi-fi in between the four avenues. City council Smart Cities programme manager Teresa McCallum said it was a ‘proof of concept’ project under way to make Christchurch an innovative and sustainable 21st century city. She said the phased roll-out of the wi-fi in the central city would happen over the next six months, starting in May. The city council was currently working on defining the trial scope, estimating costs and planning how to implement it, she said. If it proved successful, it would become a city council level of service. Central City Business Association chairman Brendan

Chase said it was a good thing. “Having people in the central city is good for business, it’s as simple as that.” He said the wi-fi would help bring people into the central city, and in turn many of those people would then visit the businesses. “It’s going to appeal to a wide range of the community.” Ms McCallum said the city council would install radios, access points and switches for the network, by leveraging existing CTOC and city council networks. “It is anticipated that this will be structured in a similar way to council’s existing free public wifi network currently in libraries, service centres, and recreational facilities.” She said it was unlikely there would be a time limit for those using the wi-fi, although the plan was not finalised. She said until the wi-fi was rolled out, she could not give certain costs. But it was estimated to be about $7000 a month depending on data usage, she said.

Nick Hunt Our People Rebuilding the city another had been organised to be brought up to his cabin. But when he went to open it, the cork hit his glasses, and a piece of glass went straight into his eye. So the next thing he was down on the couch, and we were going full ahead, opening up the engines. His eye was saved, but I think it ruined the celebrations. And what was it that made you decide to leave the sea? It was in 1998.

Developer Nick Hunt’s $140 million BNZ Centre opened this year, bringing both shoppers and office workers back into the central city. He spoke to Gabrielle Stuart about his adventures, both in the rebuild and in his past life as a ship captain What is it like to stand in the BNZ Centre and see it finally filled with people? It’s very good, believe you me. We’ll have about 1000 people in here once it’s full. But for me, I still just see all the things that still have to be done. I’ve been so focused on the building. We’ve been building for three years, designing for a year, and there was two years work before that. For someone my age, it’s been a long six and a half years. So tell me about your background? I used to be a ship’s captain. I was born in England, but went away at 16 to sail all over the world on various ships. Back then, it wasn’t like it is for youngsters nowadays, who are able to fly around the world. Back then it was the only way you could escape. Where did you travel? Everywhere. India, the Baltics,

around the Middle East, South Africa, Japan. More recently, many trips between Australia and New Zealand. For a while, I was skipper of a ferry across the English Channel. You must have had plenty of adventures? Yes, there are almost as many dramas in shipping as there are when you are building in Cashel Mall, so the experience was very valuable. It teaches you you’ve got to make things work. When things go wrong, you can’t call on consultants and lawyers, you’ve just got to somehow make it work. But there were plenty of adventures. I was once taking the Archbishop of Canterbury across the channel with his family to celebrate his 25th wedding anniversary. A bottle of champagne

REBUILD: Nick Hunt is the developer behind the BNZ Centre on Cashel St.

I was on a ship in Tauranga when a lady came on board with a little note, a writ to go up on the mast to say the owners were being taken to court for non-payment of debts. I was 55 at the time, so I thought I better start a new career. So we mortgaged the house and cashed in the pension, and I bought and refurbished Briscoes and Whitcoulls. I always liked to buy buildings and do them up. Then the earthquakes arrived, and I had to make a choice. Why did you choose to stay and rebuild, when you must have known it would be incredibly difficult? This is a privilege for an elderly gentleman like me to be part of. The last big adventure of my life. Take me though what happened after the earthquakes? Some of my buildings were damaged in the Boxing Day earthquake in 2010, so we closed them. An engineer went through and said these buildings are dangerous, we have to shut them down, and thank God we did.

adventure for developer Otherwise there could have been numerous deaths in them in the February earthquake if they were inhabited. We heard from another engineer at the time who said, “no, I think they’re fine”, but I’m glad we didn’t listen. Because I had a big enough area of land, I was able to get the green light to rebuild quite fast. So our Briscoes building on Salisbury St was one of the first to reopen in July 2012. What do your days look like as a developer? I’ll start checking things before breakfast. Then come emails and more emails. I spend most of my day in meetings, like with builders or with councils, some of them interesting and some not as much. And there are always decisions to make. Several developers I have spoken to have said they are only rebuilding here for the love of the city – because they could make much more money and building would be much easier somewhere else. Is that the case for you? I think it’s true that none of us

really comprehended how difficult it would be. There have been big problems for developers. One of them was the shutting down of the central city after February. Then there were all of those consent and regulatory issues. Our tenants have faced the same things. Scorpio Books, one of my tenants, had to move out of the city, and the costs of the

move and fit-out make moving back a considerable investment. But many of them are Christchurch people who have been here for years. It shows their commitment and faith in the city that this is going to work. What do you think of the way the city is shaping? There are issues. Accessibility is very important, because the

last thing we want is a rebuilt city facing so much gridlock even ambulances can’t get through. So that’s a bit of a problem. But if we do this right, this is going to be the finest city in New Zealand by a country mile. I remember the first time I came here in 1989, on a trip up from Timaru. I remember we walked down this part of Cashel

Mall and I said, “this is fabulous, I’ve never seen anything so nice”. Christchurch is a very pretty city, and it seemed the prime spot in the city, by the river. So it’s very satisfying to be bringing it back. Outside work, what do you do with your time? We like things like travelling and tramping, but we haven’t had much time for them. I don’t think I’ve read a book for five years. Do you ever get out on the water? From time to time, but having worked on the water for so many years, it’s not usually top of my priority list. So what is next for you? Work on the BNZ Centre is a never ending process. I would like to hope my work would be wound down by Christmas so I can relax, but there is certainly another year of work left before it is finished. But my wife is starting to get really peeved off. They call it the rebuild widows club. So I’ve promised her a good long holiday in Europe in June, no matter what.

League club to stub Regional film office raised out sideline smoking as way to boost industry „„ By Gabrielle Stuart PARENTS WATCHING from the sidelines at a children’s rugby league tournament this weekend will be asked to stub out their cigarettes. The Rolleston Warriors Rugby League club has a smoke-free stance on all its home games and practices, and plans to enforce it when it hosts Canterbury nursery grade teams in Rolleston this weekend. Club president Nui Ririnui said it banned smoking because it wanted to change rugby league’s image of “bad behaviour.” The club was founded last year, and Mr Ririnui said it wanted to make families the focus. “From the get go from day one, our morals have been smoke-free, alcohol-free and positive sideline behaviour,” he said. Although they put up smokefree signs at every game, he said some smokers lit up anyway. They were asked to leave and finish their cigarette somewhere else. Most had taken it well, he said. “One guy who was a heavy smoker came up to me about a

week later and gave me a pat on the back. He said, mate, I love what you’re doing,” he said. Mr Ririnui hoped other clubs would make the same stance. “Some people might think, oh yeah, nah, it’s too big a job, but it comes natural to us because this is what we’re about. We’re hoping it inspires some other clubs to go smoke-free because, at the end of the day, these are our kids. They’re our future,” he said.

„„ By Bridget Rutherford A REGIONAL film office aimed at bringing more international productions to Canterbury could be re-established. It comes after the city council stopped funding the previous office, Film South, which helped secure location filming for The Chronicles of Narnia, leading to its closure eight years ago. The city council has given a $15,000 grant to the Film Canterbury Charitable Trust to support the research, consultation and development of a business case into whether a film office could be established. City council head of urban design, regeneration and heritage Carolyn Ingles said the money was given out of its creative industries support fund. Film Canterbury spokeswoman Jackie Maw Tolliver said she had been working behind the scenes to establish the office. But she said she could not comment until it had further certainty.

Street art explosion transforms theatre Wayne Walsh has seen street art in Berlin, Paris, New York and Melbourne – but none compare to the work he found inside an earthquake-damaged building right here. The quantitative surveyor and photographer went inside the red-stickered Mill Theatre in Addington two weeks ago and was “blown away” by the level of graffiti he found. “I’ve been in galleries all over the world and I’ve never seen anything like it.” The 34-year-old moved to Christchurch from Cork, Ireland, seven years ago. He has been working with street artists to make an online gallery where they could sell their work. •To see more photos, visit www.star.kiwi PHOTOS: WAYNE WALSH

Nelson sings at retirement homes to honour veterans „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A RISING star in the music industry will release a special remembrance album for those who lost their lives as a result of war. Rebecca Nelson, 29, will release her new album Poppies & Pohutukawa next week. As the official singer for the Royal New Zealand Navy Band, Nelson said she has a lot of respect for the country’s Defence Force. Three city retirement villages will be some of the first to see Nelson debut her new album. After years of perfecting her

craft as a busker, the singer, who grew up in the Bishopdale/ Harewood area, has been signed to Sony Music New Zealand by Scott Maclachlan, who managed singer-songwriter Lorde. It was Nelson’s experience in Turkey with the New Zealand Defence Force to commemorate the Gallipoli landing in 1915 that inspired her to create the remembrance album. “All the songs on this album are really well-known ones that resonated with me or that I have sung at commemorations around the world,” Nelson said. Nelson dedicated the title

track, Poppies & Pohutukawa, to her great uncle Tom Nelson. She said the song is special to her because her great uncle fought in the Battle of Passchendaele and is buried in Belgium. Last year in France, Nelson performed the song for the 100-year commemoration of the Battle of Somme. Prince Charles was in the audience. Her career first took off when she was thrown into busking as a 20-year-old after she moved to Ireland and lost her job due to the global financial crisis. “I had kind of dabbled a little bit in the busking over there and

I thought this is my chance to give it a go and I haven’t looked back,” she said. She was soon discovered by musical group The Priests who took her on tour through Scotland and Ireland. When Nelson moved back to New Zealand she joined the Royal New Zealand Navy Band. •Nelson will perform at the Ngaio Marsh, Anthony Wilding and Essie Summers retirement villages next month.

Heat pump specialists offer expertise & hot prices As winter approaches and thoughts turn to home heating, the idea of having a heat pump installed is seen as an ideal and cost-effective solution for many homeowners.

That’s where advice from residential heat pump specialists DC Installation Services can be invaluable. A small Christchurch owned and operated business run by husband and wife Daniel and Mel Cooper, DC Installation Services not only has the heat pump expertise and experience, it also has the buying power to offer customers top-brand heat pumps at very competitive prices, Daniel says. “We can come to your home to carry

out a site inspection and then advise on the best heat pump for your situation. We can give a quick,on-the-spot quote with no obligation. Once you book us, installation is done quickly too, and we offer a full guarantee on our workmanship for the life of the unit.” The company supplies all the major brands, but highly recommends Mitsubishi Electric heat pumps, as they believe the quality and reliability exceed

that of other brands on the market. “Mitsubishi Electric has carried out extensive research and development to produce heat pumps that are specially designed to work efficiently in our climate,” says Daniel. Another advantage is that customers having an existing heat pump replaced with a Mitsubishi Electric model can use the existing pipe work, which cuts down on the cost.

Boosting trade a priority NEW ZEALAND is fundamentally a trading nation and our broad international trade ties are part of the reason why we’re doing so well today. Successive New Zealand Governments have finalised trade agreements with a number of countries, including Australia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea and China. Exports are now worth $70 billion to our country’s economy. Our agreements so far are working well for exporters and getting Kiwis a good return. Our goods exports to mainland China are now four times what they were before the FTA and our wine exports to South Korea have increased by 30 per cent after just six months. Prime Minister Bill English recently launched our new trade strategy – Trade Agenda 2030 – which lays out the Government’s commitment to forging new and improved trade ties, and further investment to achieve that. We’ve set the ambitious goal of having FTAs cover 90 per cent of New Zealand’s goods exports by 2030, up from 53 per cent today. In Budget 2017, $91.3 million over four years will be dedicated to helping us achieve this.

Gerry Brownlee This will go towards forging new trade agreements, maximising the benefits of existing ones, establishing new diplomatic posts in Dublin and Sri Lanka and supporting Kiwi exporters to enter new markets. Canterbury is well-positioned to profit from this initiative, which will boost our alreadystrong regional economy. For the 12 months ending September 2016, the greater Christchurch gross domestic product was $22.2 billion. That’s a 9.9 per

cent share of the national GDP. The total value of the region’s export trade through our ports for the 12 months ending January 2017 was $4.7 billion for Lyttelton Port and $0.8 billion for Christchurch Airport. I’m sure many Canterbury businesses will relish this renewed emphasis on trade and I look forward to seeing them prosper. •Gerry Brownlee is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Rail part of the big picture I THINK it’s really exciting that over the last couple of weeks the debate and conversation about public transport and rail for the wider Christchurch area has been reignited. Sparking the most recent debate is Hornby man Tane Apanui’s proposal to have commuter rail for a fraction of the cost previously mooted. While the details of this particular proposal are being mulled over by the powers that be, I believe the big picture and vision also needs to examined. Over the last six years, the shape of greater Christchurch has changed so much. Housing developments in Selwyn and Waimakariri have boomed and with them has come the inevitable traffic congestion. So far, only roads have been suggested as solutions. For me, we need to be imagining a future with increased public transport – of which commuter trains are an exciting part of the mix, along with roads, cycling and good pedestrian routes. The debate about commuter rail is far from new. Labour had a policy to get it started at the last election. We also had a plan

to further integrate the various players responsible for transport in the area. Here in Canterbury, transport responsibilities are shared between various local authorities. It’s a delicate balance, with ECan responsible for operating public transport and respective councils footing the bill for infrastructure, such as shelters and car parks. The entry of the Greater Christchurch Public Transport Committee, which brings together all the players, has been a welcome development. Improved collaboration in public transport decisionmaking is expected as a result of the committee. This is vital to making sure that the greater Christchurch we build back is not a relic of the 20th century, but one that is ready for our future. So, my hat goes off to Tane for ensuring the debate about commuter rail is not solely an Auckland issue. •Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman •More Viewpoint, page 17

Viewpoint Tim Seay, of Rakaia, responds to the Christchurch Art Gallery’s drop in visitor numbers You quoted (The Star, March 16) Christchurch Art Gallery director Jenny Harper saying that recent visitor numbers at 77 per cent of the city council’s target level were disappointing and she wanted them to increase. THey have been stagnating while those of the Canterbury Museum are increasing strongly on the back of the tourism boom. Almost 1.5 million tourists now visit the Botanical Gardens each year and the majority of Canterbury Museum’s visitors are tourists. Being on a central city site the new gallery is only visited by a few tourists. It is time Jenny Harper accepted her responsibilities as director and advised the city council that their retention of the McDougall Art Gallery in the Gardens for the city’s collection will solve all her problems. It will provide the additional storage and display capacity needed by the gallery and will increase visitor numbers. THe McDougall always used to receive tourist visitors and could now if open easily attract another 100,000 tourist visitors straight away in addition to local people. Why does she continue to refuse to acknowledge this? Pam Brathwaite, of Ilam, writes about the intersection of Ilam Rd, Middleton Rd and Riccarton Rd, ranked as the city’s second most dangerous, which will be upgraded in 2019 Jan Nolan (Viewpoint, March 23) suggests fixing the problem

by putting dedicated right-turning arrows from Ilam Rd and Middleton Rd into Riccarton Rd. This solution would need dedicated right-turning lanes, and currently there is no room for these. However, the arrows would work well if lights for Ilam Rd and Middleton Rd were separately phased, so that cars could turn right or cross the intersection safely from the same queue, without the current blockages caused by right-turning traffic. This could make the intersection much safer immediately, for a modest cost, and then a longerterm solution could be explored for 2019. Readers respond to a multi-agency group looking into altering the amber traffic signal by up to a second in a bid to curb the city’s red light-running problem Elle Morton – I travel across the city every day and have observed that very heavy use intersections don’t have right turning arrows and those that do either don’t work (Curletts Rd/Main South Rd) or have a ridiculously short time span. Drivers are prepared to wait patiently if they know they will get their turn to right turn and not try to be forced in the middle on an amber light which turns to red before they can turn. Our traffic management in Christchurch is almost third world – no right turning arrow at Main South Rd/Clarence St and many other heavy use intersections need them installed. This, I feel, would make intersections safer. Even worse are intersections with gridlocked traffic with no lights (ie streets leading into Barrington St from the mall) and cars trying to make dangerous right turns. Curletts Rd at 3pm has traffic from five schools feed into it at the Main South Rd intersection – dangerous at any time to turn right but more so at 3pm. Sue Bennetts – I live close to the intersection of Clyde Rd, Fendalton Rd and Memorial Ave.

I cross the road every morning at approximately 8.30am going south from Clyde Rd. Every morning there would be at least three cars per light change that run a red light. I often have to wait for cars to go through as they constantly run red lights. The kids on scooters, walking and cycling often have to wait as the green man comes up on the traffic light.

However, there are often three or more cars still travelling through the intersection very quickly. A friend’s son was hit on the pedestrian crossing to the BP. This is a big intersection with hundreds of children crossing every day to get to three different schools. I can honestly say that every morning there would be at least three red light-runners in either direction on every light change. This is not turning on a red light but just going straight through from Fendalton Rd to Memorial Ave. Because Christchurch (unlike

every other major city in New Zealand), has very few right hand turning green arrows it is almost impossible to turn right under a green light. Drop by the intersection of Clyde Rd and Creyke Rd at 3.30pm and try to turn right. Yesterday, I tried this and it took me 21min to get through the intersection. Why don’t we just issue tickets for red light runners (not turning right) at $150 a pop and see how that works. Lynley Fisher – Reading the article in The Star compelled me to write. To some degree yes . . . they need to sort out the light changes to use common sense and not frustrate people. I am guilty of running red lights sometimes but honestly when you have sat through some sets three times you get so frustrated. 

I take my boy to school and turn right from Styx Mill Rd into Main North Rd, sometimes or often, there are truck and trailers waiting to turn also. The light changes give long enough for the one truck and trailer to get through sometimes and no one else. So annoying. So if I am behind, I go through too or I am late for school. Last week, I was at Northwood lights turning left into Main North Rd. I had a red arrow waiting for a pedestrian to cross the road. It is such a wide road that by the time the woman had crossed, one car had time to turn left . . . so I ran an amber/red

light again out of frustration! The light cycles frustrate everyone, who in turn, take risks. Kathy Hughes – Allowing the give way rule at red lights for left turning traffic would free up some traffic flow and reduce driver wait time and frustration. The United States has this – give way on red for right turning traffic as they drive on the right. It works brilliantly by reducing queues when the road is clear.  Gavin Simon – Thank you for your article which is timely as some of the traffic problems in Christchurch can be laid at the blame of Christchurch traffic engineers and the others mentioned in your article – Canterbury Transport Operation Centre, city council, NZ Transport Agency and Christchurch Police. What was not mentioned was the short duration of some green lights and the frequent short duration of green arrows. This promotes the illegal travelling through on yellow lights and red light running because of the necessity, or, sitting in the middle with a green then yellow, requiring a red to turn right mainly because of a lack of a green right turn arrow. Many of these green turning lights have a duration of only 2sec meaning that the yellow phase of 3.5sec lets more cars through than the green arrow phase. I realise that light phases is sharing time with the other directions, but if you are sitting in a queue beginning at 10 cars and require three light cycles to get through the intersection then something is wrong. Auckland green and green arrow phases are far longer, why do they have a different standard? Many intersections have only a red turning arrow and no amber or green, so if the intersection is clear to make a right turn on the green light the red right turn arrow prevents you from clearing the intersection. Standalone red turning arrows should be abolished if they are not in conjunction with a green right turning arrow.

Theatre/Arts

Glitz and glamour of Priscilla Priscilla Queen of the Desert Written by Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott Reviewed by Georgia O’Connor-Harding THE BIG pink bus has finally arrived, rolling in bedazzling costumes, big personalities and some of the best talent the city has to offer. Fabulous. Showbiz Christchurch has seriously taken it up a gear in its first extravagant production of the year. Everything from the eccentric costumes through to the cleverly-choreographed, booty-shaking numbers has been done on a large scale – it is impossible to not walk away from the show feeling uplifted and ready to dance. With a lively audience thrown into the mix, the Isaac Theatre Royal was transformed into a grooving disco party. From the street, you could probably hear the rollicking audience yahooing away to some of the 1980s best pop hits. The show is centred around a road trip across the outback

ACTION: The talented cast in Showbiz Christchurch’s latest production Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

of Australia, with some lucky audience members even getting to have a hoedown with a few “rednecks” in the hilarious number, Thank God I’m A Country Boy. Behind the glitz and glamour is a beautiful story about two Sydney drag queens and a male transgender who travel on a battered bus called Priscilla to find acceptance for the way they have chosen to live. It is hard to pick a favourite drag queen out of the three leading roles. In spite of some hilarious lip-syncing in a lot of the songs, all three had beauti-

ful voices, which were especially striking in True Colours and I Say A Little Prayer. Cameron Douglas portrayed elegance and a unique beauty as the ageing transsexual Bernadette. Tom Worthington’s role as Adam Whitely and the dragqueen Felicia Jollygoodfellow was irresistible. That cheeky smirk he mastered for what is a youthful role just sang trouble.  My jaw dropped open during his flamboyant performance of Venus. The minimal armour-themed costumes

Seriously not to be missed! Iconic performing arts organisation Woolston Brass has a distinguished 125 year history and has maintained a playing strength of around forty musicians, with members drawn from all walks of like brought together by a creative talent for making music. Woolston Brass also takes great pride in its pioneering Academy that includes a learners group and two training bands; Woolston Junior Band and Woolston Concert Brass. Woolston Brass (A Grade) with Music Director Tyme Marsters and Woolston Concert Brass (C Grade) with Music Director Nick Johnson are striving for musical excellence and top places in their respective grades at the upcoming New

Zealand Brass Band Championships being held in Wellington mid-April. Seriously Brass 2017 on Friday 14 April, 4pm-6pm at The Charles Luney Auditorium will feature the two bands’ virtuosic contest repertoire and showcase top local brass players and percussionists, plus a guest performance from the Woolston Junior Band. Tickets and further information about Seriously Brass 2017 can be found at www.dashtickets.co.nz.

N E W

Worthington and a talented ensemble of male dancers wore – plus the often raunchy dance moves – made for a wild spectacle, which the audience loved. The three flying divas, played by Naomi Ferguson, Jane Leonard and Emily Burns, cannot go unmentioned. All three were powerhouses who smashed out disco sing-alongs. Burns’ voice shone when she sang I Will Survive. Her voice was so powerful and clear, it was like she had sent shock waves through the theatre. There was the odd sound issue, but I believe this would have been well and truly smoothed out by now. I thought Showbiz punched well above its weight in what was a technically challenging show. Some of the sizzling one-liners were to die for – unfortunately, I don’t think I would get away with putting my favourites in the paper.

STARS: Cameron Douglas as Bernadette, Tom Worthington as Adam Whitely and Isaac Pawson as Anthony “Tick” Belrose.

Peel the feijoas and chop roughly into a large pot. Add the sliced ginger, orange and lemon zest. Fill with water to 1cm above the feijoas. Bring to a simmer for 10-12 minutes or until the feijoas are completely soft. If the feijoas are hard, it may take a little longer. Place a bowl under a strainer and line it with muslin. Carefully pour in the feijoas and juice. Gather up the sides and tie with string. Hang the muslin over the bowl, tying it high enough for the juice to drip slowly through. Do not be tempted to squeeze the muslin. Leave overnight to drain. Next day, measure the juice into a clean pot. For each cup of juice, add one cup of sugar. Slowly bring to a simmer, then boil gently for 15 minutes. Remove the scum from the top as it boils – it is ready when a little is tested on a saucer and it will almost set. Pour into sterilised jars and store.

All you need to know about chilling bulbs „„ By Paul Hoek TO CHILL or not to chill. It’s an age-old question and one I get asked every year in the lead-up to spring bulb planting. So what’s the answer? Yes – you may need to chill your spring flowering bulbs, but only tulips and hyacinths. And it’s only essential if you experience fewer than five frosts a winter. But even if you do get enough natural chilling in winter, fridge chilling can still give benefits – taller stems and earlier flowering. Why you need to chill certain bulbs? Tulips and hyacinths are native to areas which experience quite cold winters and they need this cold period for the bulb to complete the development of the flower bud deep inside. Sure signs you should have chilled your bulbs are if they produced unusually short stems or the bulbs failed to flower at all. Done correctly, chilling your tulips and hyacinths will result in perfect spring flowers. Here are my tips for optimal bulb chilling: 1. Don’t start chilling until late March – too early and you’ll stunt the flower bud development.

COLOUR: Tulip ad rem – chilling will complete the development of the flower bud.

2. Use a paper bag. It’s very important the bulbs can breathe and plastic bags cause sweating and rot may develop. 3. Keep the bulbs to the side of the fridge, not at the back where the cooler plate may ice up and damage them, or where condensation may cause mould to develop. 4. Never put bulbs in the freezer! The freezer is too cold and will kill your bulbs. 5. Keep fruit out of the fridge while you’re chilling your bulbs. Ripening fruit releases a gas called ethylene which can cause severe damage to the developing flower bud in the bulb. If you can’t keep

fruit out of the fridge, include an ethylene-absorbing sachet (available on our website) in the bag with the bulb. This will prevent ethylene damage and suppress mould growth (they’re actually really good in the vege compartment too, to make your veges keep longer). Once you’ve chilled your bulbs for around eight weeks it’s time to start planting in mid to late May when soil temperatures are cooler. Before you plant, work the soil with a fork to a depth of 25cm. This is deeper than the bulbs need to be planted but will allow their new roots to easily push further into the soil. Then plant your bulbs around 15cm deep – it’s cooler down there. Once planted give your bulbs a light watering. In cooler parts of New Zealand you can plant tulips and hyacinths successfully in pots, but because pots warm up so quickly, even in winter, I don’t recommend them for warmer areas. Apply a bulb fertiliser (available from your local garden centre) once the shoots emerge, water well and you can expect your bulbs to put on a spectacular CREATION: Hyacinth purple sensation – will flower perfectly if show come spring. chilled.

In the flower garden, your summer annuals will be winding down. Continue to dead-head plants where you want to prolong displays.

with

Bulbs are a superb way to add springtime fragrance and colour to your garden after a long winter. Plant different varieties to give variations in height and colour. Always label where the bulbs are in the garden so they are not damaged or accidently dug up when dormant over winter.

Instead of having a ‘regular’ lawn, I would like to plant native grasses and tussocks. What would you recommend?

Grasses and Grass-like Plants: Aciphylla dieffenbachii (spear grass) Aciphylla squarrosa Anemanthele lessoniania Carex comans Carex buchananii Carex flagellifera Libertia ixioides Libertia peregrinans

Today’s winning question came from Sasha Williams. Congratulations! Rather than simply replacing your lawn with native grasses, we would suggest a combination of low growing grasses and native ground covers. This will not only provide interest in your garden, but the ground covers will also help suppress weeds from emerging.

A

The plants listed to the right are suitable for cultivating in the Canterbury district.

Ground Covers: Acaena inermis Coprosma acerosa (Te Puna) Coprosma taiko Geranium traversii Fuchsia procumens Gunnera prorepens Mazus radicans Nertera depressa Pimelea prostata

BE IN TO WIN!

Prepare your soil well before planting to ensure your new plants get the best start. To achieve this, incorporate lots of organic matter such as Daltons Compost, which improves the soil quality and help plants develop strong, healthy root systems. You can finish with a layer of mulch, or perhaps decorative bark or pebble. There is a wide selection of products available in the Daltons range.

in the garden Soil should be prepared for new plantings in the same fashion as the vegetable garden. Plan your winter flowering garden carefully to achieve longevity of blooms throughout the season. Winter annuals to plant in april include – Alyssum, calendulas, cornflower, cinerarias, lobelia, nemesia, pansies, snapdragons, stock, sweet william and violas. April and May are the main months for planting

new strawberry plants. Strawberries crop freely on one and sometimes twoyear-old plants, and then they should be removed. Strawberries grow best in fertile soils, and beds should be raised to ensure good drainage. Space new plants 150-200mm apart, on mounds up to 200mm above the existing ground level. Autumn is the time to lift and divide any perennials where overcrowding

has occurred. This involves trimming any old growth back to ground level, digging up, dividing and then replanting where required. Not all perennials require this treatment and therefore can remain undisturbed for many years. Replant containers with salad vegetables, herbs or flowering winter annuals and move them into a position that is warmer and sunnier during the winter months.

Dropping Shaun Johnson would be pointless „„ By Michael Burgess SHAUN JOHNSON remains one of the Warriors biggest conundrums – but dropping him is not the answer. Especially not at the moment. NSW State of Origin coach Laurie Daley is the latest to call for it, suggesting on Monday that Johnson should be benched or dropped from the squad altogether, as a reality check to “get the best out of him”. In some ways, it’s curious

coming from Daley; he was a legendary player, but hasn’t marked himself as the best judge of halves talent as a coach, using five different players in the No 7 jersey for NSW over four seasons. But Daley has the right sentiment, in that he wants Johnson to reach his potential, so he can “take his game to the next level”. But dumping Johnson at the moment – even for one game – would be pointless. The 26-yearold can be a source of frustration

at the Warriors, and his status as the No 1 earner at the club makes him an obvious target. In terms of play-making and organisation, he’s not comparable to Johnathan Thurston, Cooper Cronk, Daly Cherry-Evans or Mitchell Pearce – and maybe never will be. But he has improved in that area and is the best play-maker the Warriors have got. That situation may change in a few months if Kieran Foran is fit and firing, but at the moment there is no

rors, more than most of his NRL halfback peers. And Johnson, for whatever reason, doesn’t always stamp his mark on matches. Johnson does need to be challenged, and the ideal scenario may emerge in a few months, with Foran playing every week and Ata Hingano and Mason Lino pushing their case to be in first grade.

better option to run the team. Johnson is also a game-breaker, and his mercurial talents could lift the Warriors out of their current malaise. Across 129 NRL games, he averages almost one try every two games, including plenty of match-winning efforts, and has 111 try assists. He’s also been durable and was the only Warrior to figure in all 24 games last season. But there are definitely some unresolved issues with Johnson. He’s still prone to untimely er-

Club rugby opens with grand-final rematch „„ By Gordon Findlater SATURDAY’S opening round of the Hawkins Cup at Linfield Park will see a rematch of last year’s trophy grand-final. New Brighton and Lincoln University were the two top teams last year. New Brighton claimed the round-robin Hawkins Cup by one point over their rivals, but Lincoln had the final say, defeating the seasiders 48-12 in the Hawkins Trophy grandfinal. The two teams will have a different look to the sides which turned out at Rugby Park in July. New Brighton face a tough task if they’re to have any chance of defending the Hawkins Cup after being dealt a series of cruel injury blows. They will be without a large chunk of their forward pack, which was regarded as one of the best last season. Flankers Billy Harmon and Troy Mangan are both out for the season after undergoing shoulder reconstructions. Hooker Nathan Vella is also out for the campaign after breaking his arm while playing for the Crusaders Knights, while lock

Joe Stewart will miss the season with a back injury. Midfield backs Brett Mather and Rhys Keith are also expected to miss a large chunk of the season. “We’re battling a wee bit, it’s going to be quite a testing season for us,” said New Brighton coach Scott Pawson. Lincoln will be without the likes of Jordie Barrett and Jack Goodhue. Last year, they were regulars for the club side, but have since gone on to become Super Rugby regulars. Pawson believes whatever line-up Lincoln put out will be a tough one to overcome. “You know they’re going to have young guys with huge potential each year,” he said. All six opening round games will take place at Linfield Park. Round one Christchurch v Sumner, 1pm; HSOB v Shirley, 1.15pm; Linwood v Sydenham, 1.30pm; University v Burnside, 2.45pm; Belfast v Marist Albion, 3pm; Lincoln University v New Brighton, 3.15pm

Siblings team up on court „„ By Gordon Findlater TWO SETS of brothers can win their fourth straight premier Canterbury interclub title for Cashmere with a win over Elmwood on Saturday. Meredith brothers James, Matt and Tim, and McHarg brothers Johnny and Tim have made a habit of dominating the local interclub competition. They have been the core of the Cashmere team which has won three consecutive titles. “This is what we get up for every year. It should be a great atmosphere at the club on Saturday,” said James Meredith. Cashmere and Elmwood will meet in the final, which is set to be a close encounter. The two met twice during the roundrobin, taking one win a piece. Elmwood won 4-2 (matches) at Cashmere in October. However, Cashmere won 5-1 at Elmwood last month. Form would suggest that Cashmere already have two matches in the bag. Since returning from a tennis scholarship at Boise State University in the United States in 2013, James Meredith has gone undefeated in the interclub competition in

both singles and doubles. Elmwood qualified for the final in dramatic fashion, defeating Waimairi by just two games on a count back. The two clubs were tied on matches and sets. However, Elmwood held an advantage in total games won 60-58. “It wasn’t easy getting past Waimairi and Cashmere will

be an even bigger ask, but we’re confident we can give them a good run,” said Elmwood team captain Sam Keenan. •Saturday’s interclub final will be contested over two doubles and four singles matches. Play will begin at the Cashmere Tennis Club at 2.30pm

How the country’s hookers stack up against each other „„ Campbell Burnes WE KNOW Dane Coles, barring injury, is a certainty for the All Blacks No 2 jersey this season, but what of the other frontline New Zealand hookers? Logic suggests they would be ranked Codie Taylor, Liam Coltman, Hika Elliot and James Parsons, in that order, but do the stats bear that out? Coles himself is playing well for the Hurricanes, although he would love to score a try and

boost his lineout accuracy after five throws have gone astray in his four games in 2017. Codie Taylor is standing out on in an industrious Crusaders pack. His lineout throwing is accurate, he has scored a try and makes his tackles as the dominant rake in the jobsharing role with Ben Funnell. Liam Coltman is one of several in the Highlanders pack who just rolls his sleeves up and gets on with hitting rucks, making tackles and trying to steal ball

„„ By Ross Kiddie TOYOTA New Zealand has facelifted its family-friendly Highlander. The large sport utility vehicle has fresh frontal treatment, a new powertrain, and safety upgrades across the range. The Highlander is the first Toyota to adopt an advanced 3.5-litre V6 engine producing significant gains in power and torque – an increase of 17kW (to 218kW) and 13Nm (to 350Nm) respectively – over the outgoing model. Paired with a new direct shift eight-speed automatic transmission, the new ratios deliver improved acceleration and overtaking ability. “Highlander has become established as a firm Kiwi favourite and the latest improvements deliver more of everything families and fleets want,” says Spencer Morris, Toyota New Zealand’s general manager of product. “We’ve increased performance, improved fuel economy, added additional safety features and given it a fresh look.” The Highlander’s extensive safety appointments, which see it achieve a five-star Australasian New Car Assessment Program rating across the range, are paramount for around town driving during the busy working week just as it is for weekend and holiday adventures.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER: Significant gains in power outputs with greater fuel efficiency.

Toyota has applied additional safety technology to the entire Highlander range: • The Limited gains the Toyota Safety Sense package consisting of the precrash safety system with automatic braking, high speed dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure alert with steering assistance and automatic high beam. • The Limited also has two front parking sensors to complement the four rear parking sensors (available on all models) and the addition of a rear cross traffic alert to the existing blind spot monitor. • Emergency stop signal and trailer sway control has been added to all models. Inside, the 2017 Highlander, GX and GXL models gain a 4.2in colour

multi-information display while the GXL receives a larger 8in audio display and now features satellite navigation with SUNA traffic alerts. The Limited now has a panoramic view monitor – which provides the driver with a live 360deg bird’s-eye view around the vehicle to see potential obstacles from all angles and rain-sensing wipers. All vehicles have a sliding second row seat, while the third row has a 60:40 split to increase luggage capacity, offering both practicality and flexibility for busy families.

While renovating the interior of your home creates a comfortable living environment and improves its re-sale potential, the outside of the property is equally important. Remember, first impressions count! Creating an attractive outdoor environment may involve landscaping, plantings, decks, pergolas, garaging, fencing, paths, entrance and driveway, in addition to the exterior decoration of the house itself. However, be careful not to over-capitalise on elaborate landscaping, if a simple make-over can achieve a desirable effect. Draw up plans and a budget for the areas you plan to re-develop. Ensure any additional structures such as garaging, decks, retaining walls and fences have the required permits and seek advice on the ideal building materials and methods. Planting Discuss with your local garden centre or nursery which plants will best suit the size sun and situation of your section and don’t design a labour intensive garden if your lifestyle won’t allow you the time to look after it! Fences and Gates These should provide privacy and security, while also allowing access to the property for visitors. Try to choose fence and gate styles that complement the age and style of your home. Consider additional aspects such as light, cost,

Screened for shelter and privacy they are attractive “outdoor rooms” for recreation, entertaining and outdoor dining and a sure way to enhance the value of almost any home. Garages and Carports Depending on the age of your home, garage space may be a problem is there is insufficient access to the side or rear of the house. It may be possible to construct a garage or carport close to the street frontage. In order not to detract from the visual appeal of the property, it is important that the dimensions, design and materials be in keeping with the existing house. Skillful landscaping and planting can “soften” the impact.

There has never been a better time to look at investing in the Oamaru property market! During the last few months, real estate in the region has seen a surge in the number of properties being listed and sold, with some great options in investment to be found.

The Waitaki district is definitely on a roll at the moment, and that roll looks set to continue for quite some time yet! With agriculture, manufacturing and tourism growing strongly through investment and promotion, Waitaki is attracting a lot of attention.

Oamaru, is made up of four main suburbs: Oamaru (central suburb), Oamaru North, Holmes Hill and South Hill. Average values have grown relatively comparatively across these main suburbs and properties are selling, on average, in about two months.

Lonely Planet has called Oamaru, “the coolest town in New Zealand,” and that is a title we are proud of. Our Council is working hard with our community to make our district an even more amazing place.

With a lot of media time in recent weeks, after data was released showing Oamaru as the fourth most-viewed New Zealand location on property website Juwai, we have received a multitude of calls from out-of-towners who are interested in investing in property in, or moving to, the North Otago region. With a shortage of rentals available, investors are seeing great returns for what they already own, and the time is right to increase investment portfolios. On the other hand, many folk are also looking at making the move to our region as they’re seeing the many benefits our lifestyle here has to offer.

With so many wonderful attributes going for us, from our natural environment through to our built heritage, our eclectic arts and music scene, and growing economy, we really have a place with an amazingly positive future. I’m proud of the sustainable growth we are experiencing. We are improving opportunities for our local people, and welcoming a steady but manageable stream of new people to the area. They are coming for better lifestyles, good jobs, business opportunities, and in some cases to retire. We are a friendly town and a welcoming district.

To have a chat about the local property market, give me a call! Stephen Robertson LJ Hooker Oamaru Principal Phone 027 473 1112
