9AM - 4PM DAILY PIONEER STADIUM

NEIGHBOURS AT WAR 76-year-old woman in court, cars damaged „„ By Andrew King A BITTER 10-month neighbourhood dispute has led to an elderly woman facing the courts. The 76-year-old was found guilty in the district court on Friday of wilful damage. It related to damage caused to a neighbour’s vehicles. She was discharged without conviction in the judge-alone hearing and ordered to pay reparation to her neighbour. Police hoped the court appearance would finally end the dispute in upmarket Memorial Ave, Burnside. But already the signs are there – literally – that the dispute is not over. After her court appearance, the neighbour whose vehicles were damaged put up a ‘Guilty’ sign which faces the woman’s property. The elderly woman refused to talk to The Star this week. Her neighbour said he and his family just wanted to move on. “We have been through hell with this woman and we would

just like it to stop,” he said. When asked why he had put up the guilty sign, he told The Star he was unhappy she had been discharged without conviction. The sign would remind her she was guilty, he said. The dispute which erupted in September happened after his Brent loves reading the newspaper.

So we designed an extra wide bench for him to stop his paper falling into the sink.

daughter was seen playing on the shared driveway, he said. “She believes that she owns the driveway, but it’s a shared one,” the neighbour said. It led both parties to set up surveillance cameras aimed at each other’s properties and tit for tat allegations to the police of harassment. That included the 76-year-old alleging dog poo was thrown onto her property and water deliberately flooding her garden. The man said water from his sprinkler had gone onto the woman’s property but he denied dog poo had been thrown. Police became involved when the woman and her neighbour laid separate complaints about each other. Police tried to broker a truce but the complaints continued. The feud escalated in October when the neighbour found two cars on his property had been damaged. He reported it to the police but was told it was his word against hers. •Turn to page 3

Thursday June 8 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

TESTY OLD times in Memorial Ave our front page article reveals today. It’s a neighbours at war situation, and one which should never have got as far as it has. It defies logic that a 76-yearold should end up in court over a bitter dispute involving a shared driveway. There’s nothing new about rows over shared driveways but this one has got way out of hand. The police are fairly patient people, particularly when it comes to the elderly, so for them to take it to court underpins how serious this one is. And probably making matters worse is the other party in the equation – the neighbour who had his vehicles damaged – has in the last few days rubbed salt into a festering wound. He’s put up a Guilty sign after the court hearing which faces the elderly woman’s property. Not a smart move. On another note, we have extensive coverage of the Lions visit. Go the Crusaders. – Barry Clarke

At a Glance THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST This week in history saw a fire in Colombo St destroy buildings between Hereford and Cashel Sts on June 4, 1864. On the same day in 1866 the refurbished Royal Princess Theatre re-opened as the first Theatre Royal. On June 6, 1905, the first electric trams began operation. Unique in Australasia, they had front fenders as a safety feature because of the density of cycle traffic in Christchurch. On June 7, 1877, the Canterbury College (University) building was opened. Designed by B. W. Mountfort, the building is now part of the Arts Centre. On June 8, 1966, the Wahine, described as the largest vehicular ferry in the world, began sailing on the Lyttelton-Wellington run. On June 9, 1869, an earthquake damaged many buildings including the town hall. On June 9, 1917, the Sign of the Kiwi (right) was opened. On June 10, 1868, William Wilson was elected the first mayor of Christchurch.

INJURY AFTER ROAD RAGE A road rage incident in Amberley left a man with a broken tooth after he was punched by another motorist on Saturday. The confrontation happened at the intersection of Amberley Beach and Carters Rd at about 1.15pm. Police spoke with the victim who provided them with a registration number of the offender’s vehicle. Police have charged a 26-year-old man with assault, a police communications spokeswoman said.

News Tane the lion tamer „„ By Gordon Findlater IT’S BEEN a toy for his children, grandchildren and now it lives in his bar – but the Lions official mascot from their 1977 tour wasn’t gifted to Tane Norton. It was stolen from under the tourist’s noses, but not that Norton knew that at the time. Norton was in Auckland just after captaining the All Blacks to their series win over the Lions in 1977. He was invited by former All Black Pat Walsh to speak at a dinner at his rugby club. “I went along and on the table there was a cardboard tube and inside it was the lion and on the outside it said: ‘To Tane from Phil’,” said Norton. By Phil, it meant Phil Bennett, captain of the 77 Lions team. Norton was due to fly to South Africa the next day to take part in a World XV match. After instructing Walsh that he couldn’t take the lion, it was sent to his address in Christchurch. “When I got back it was on the front doorstep,” said Norton. He then received a phone call from police a few days later asking if he was in possession of the lion. “He said: ‘I’ve got a file here on that lion, it’s about a foot deep and the last name on it is yours’,” said Norton “I got on the bus with the lion

In Brief ARSON ATTACKS STOP Arson attacks in Burnside and Ilam have stopped over the past few weeks after police increased patrols around the area. Over a number of weeks, there had been a series of deliberately lit fires in the area, with wheelie bins, a car, and for sale sign set alight. Some of the blazes scorched the exterior of occupied homes. Senior Sergeant Stephan McDaniel said in response to the fires that police have increased patrols in the area in an effort to catch the person lighting them.

Current director and risk, audit and finance committee chairwoman, Catherine Drayton, will take over the role.

and went down to the police station. I put it up on the table and they poked it and turned it. They weren’t overly friendly to me at this stage.” “They said: ‘This is very similar to the lion but what we’ll do is write to England and say if anyone wants to come out and identify it then you will return it’.” The only person that ever came to see the lion was former

Ireland and Lions lock Willie John McBride. “He came for a cup of tea at my place some years later. I brought the lion out and he swore in some Irish pogue,” said Norton. “He said: ‘You deserve it, you keep it’. I did feel a bit better after that.” It’s believed the lion first came into Kiwi hands during the

Lions game against Counties Manukau in Pukekohe when it was stolen from the team bus. The lion now has a permanent home at Bailies Bar in Edgeware, where it attracts a bit of attention. “He’s had more photos taken of himself than I have of me,” said Norton. •Lions coverage, pages 4,5,6 & 7

of the damage, charges were laid. “This was a bit of a tit for tat between neighbours that resulted in damage, which we had evidence on,” he said. He said in the majority of neighbour disputes police decide if it is the public’s interest to spend time mediating between the two parties or leave them to work it out themselves.

CANTERBURY ROSE OFF TO NATIONAL FINAL Canterbury Rose of Tralee Olivia Hughes will head to Wellington this weekend to compete for the national title. If successful, she will compete on the world stage in Ireland in August. The personal trainer was named Canterbury Rose of Tralee in April. The pageant is judged on personality, social awareness, accomplishments and “x-factor”. STATION FENCE FUNDING A controversial ratepayer-funded fence on Flock Hill Station has got the green light. The Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee will allocate $26,571 to section off a part of Cave Stream and 35ha of wetlands at the station. The committee initially approved $44,236 for the project in March, but has since reviewed its decision. The funding was reduced after the station’s owners decided they wanted funding for stage one and two but not stage three. A final decision on the funding was held off at the committee’s May meeting because more research was needed.

Lions Tour Bars and restaurants „„ By Gabrielle Stuart RESTAURANTS and bars are set to be packed on Saturday with fans who missed out on tickets to the sell-out Lions v Crusaders match. It was the first regional match in the Lions tour to sell out, with seats gone by February. But a giant Fanzone screen on Poplar St is set to broadcast the match, in an effort to draw fans in to the central city. Dux Central manager Julian Sinke said he was expecting big numbers, especially as the Fanzone screen was set to be visible from the balcony. The tour came at a good time for businesses, as winter closed in, he said. “It’s a fact that when the weather gets colder people drink less beer, so people just need that extra incentive to get out,” he said. He said a mulled wine festival was planned there this weekend. He hoped the warm drinks would be a drawcard on a cold night. Tower Junction Speight’s

JUBILATION: Bars in the city are expected to be busy with Lions supporters this weekend.

Ale House owner Bill Haig said he already had a lot of bookings, and was expecting the place to be packed. But he was expecting mostly locals, rather than large numbers of tourists, so although it would be a busy night on Saturday, he expected the rest of the weekend would be fairly normal. “The tourists aren’t going to be here as much, because they can get a van and tour around in the North Island. They can’t do that very easily here,” he said.

With no test matches in the South Island, many of the visiting overseas fans are expected to skip the Christchurch and Dunedin matches completely. Hospitality NZ Canterbury branch president Peter Morrison said he was disappointed Christchurch had missed out on a test match, and extra visitor spending with it. “Until we have the new stadium we’ll keep missing out,” he said. But fully-booked motels around the stadium suggest some fans have made the trip.

Fans welcomed for free

While this would usually be a quiet time of year, this weekend most accommodation in Addington is either booked up or almost full. Andy Pu of Addington Court Motel said it was fully booked by mid-May – although as most people booked online, he could not say if they were international fans or from elsewhere in New Zealand. Carol Grainger, general manager of the 2 on Whiteleigh and 239 On Lincoln motels, said all 32 rooms were fully booked by Friday. She said many were there for the Lions tour – with bookings from Great Britain, from Ireland and from Australia, and Kiwis travelling the length of the country, including from Auckland and from Southland. She said the motel only newly opened in February, so the bookings were a great boost coming into the quiet winter period. “We missed out on the peak of the summer season, so this is great for us,” she said. The Lions team is set to stay at the Rydges Latimer, and fans on the official tour at the Novotel Christchurch, but managers at both hotels would not discuss numbers staying, for commercial

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart LANCE AND Pam McKechie plan to host at least seven Lions fans in their home over the next month – and they’re doing it for free. The Halswell couple join hundreds of others around the country who have offered to “Adopt a Lions Fan” during the tour. Mrs McKechie said she offered because she wanted “to pay it forward.’’ She heard discussions on the radio about the cost of accommodation skyrocketing in Auckland during the tour, with some fans struggling to find a room. Last year the couple went on holiday to Scotland, and she said people there were so hospitable, she wanted to return the favour. “Twice we were billeted with families there, and it was so nice to stay with the locals, to be able to get the real experience rather than staying in hotels,” she said. She said they had three spare bedrooms as their children had all left home, so she posted on the “Adopt a Lions Fan” Facebook page to offer the beds. Within a few days she had a response from an Irish fan hoping to stay, then an Englishman, and then a group of five fans hoping

NZ Rugby spokesman Ian Long said some overseas fans booked tickets through official tour groups, but others booked through local friends – so it was impossible to say how many international guests would be visiting. “It’s fair to say the numbers of Lions fans is certainly growing, but it’s really not possible to put numbers on it,” he said. •The match is set to be broadcast free at the Poplar St Fanzone from 7.30pm, with food trucks and children’s activities running from 5pm to 10pm.

While she would ordinarily feel a bit nervous about having so many strangers to stay, she decided she could make it work. “You just look at them like overseas friends you haven’t met yet,” she said. “These guys might not have come down to Christchurch if they were having to find hotels everywhere, so I hope it will re-

We virtually had an All Black side,” said McCormick. In the United Kingdom the 71 game was seen as a premeditated assault to slow the Lions down ahead of the test series against the All Blacks.

ANY TIME the Lions and Christchurch are mentioned in the same sentence, rugby purists will immediately think of the 1971 match against Canterbury. Not generally for the rugby, but the biff. The seeds for that violent encounter had been sown in the two previous Lions tours, when Canterbury upset the tourists 20-14 in Fergie 1959, and narMcCormick rowly lost 8-6 in a bruising match in 1966. Canterbury’s Fergie McCormick, who played in all three matches, said the toughness of those games led to the violent

memories of 71’s brutal encounter Carmichael soon became the poster child of the violent encounter. Images of his bruised eyes creating headlines back home. “He had a black eye and a bent nose. They got the cameras right up to his face to get a good shot and they’re still whinging about it, but they started it,” said McCormick The injury that ended McLoughlin’s campaign was more his own doing, testing his hand against one of the toughest heads in the game. “He hit Alex Wyllie and cut his cheek bone open, that’s how

he broke his thumb,” said McCormick. Although Canterbury had managed to wound the rampant Lions it didn’t slow them down and the tourists went onto record their only test series win over the All Blacks. “They were strong. The players they had went on to become icons of the game,” said Norton. The Canterbury hooker was part of the series defeat but was lucky enough to captain the All Blacks side that defeated the Lions 3-1 in 1977. As for the rivalry created on that day, he says the opponents

on that day have since become lifelong friends. “All those guys we played we’ve met since and remained really good friends with. Of course we still have each other on about that game,” said Norton. A lot may have changed in 46 years but rivalries etched in blood are never forgotten. McCormick and Norton both expect to see more of a spectacle when it comes to the rugby being played on Saturday night, and more than anyone they’ll be hoping to see the Lions get tipped over by the red and blacks. BRUISED: Carmichael shows the damage from the battle of Lancaster Park a week after the Lions 14-3 victory. Right – He leaves the field with a shattered cheekbone.

Further call to lower speed limits „„ By Bridget Rutherford A TRANSPORT expert is calling for lower speed limits around busy shopping centres, schools and on winding roads in a bid to improve safety. It comes after some schools made pleas for lower speed limits outside their gates as part of the city council’s Annual Plan. ViaStrada senior traffic engineer and transport planner Glen Koorey told the infrastructure, transport and environment committee yesterday the city council should consider lowering further speed limits across the city. That would be in addition to the 30km/h limit already implemented on some central city streets. The former Canterbury University transport engineering senior lecturer said the changes would improve motorist, cyclist and pedestrian safety. “There’s a lot of crashes where the likelihood or the severity could have been reduced greatly if you got the speeds down. We know from the evidence that you drop the speeds from 50km/h to 40km/h, 40km/h to 30km/h, the risk of serious injury or fatality goes down dramatically.” He said Wellington success-

fully implemented lower speed limits of either 30km/h or 40km/h near suburban shopping centres. He wanted the same done here. Data he collated from 2012-16, showed the number of crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists were higher near suburban shopping centres, such as Northlands, Westfield Riccarton and Bush Inn Shopping Centre. Dr Koorey said in Hamilton, speed limits in school zones had been reduced. He said that could be done here.

St Anne’s Catholic, Te Waka Unua and Linwood Avenue schools all want the speed reduced to 40km/h outside their gates during school pick-up and drop-off times. They made presentations to city councillors about it at an annual plan hearing last month, which came alongside a 1759-signature petition. Dr Koorey also said narrow, windy or unsealed rural roads, such as Summit Rd, or those around Lyttelton and Akaroa harbours, did not need 100km/h

speed limits. Governors Bay residents have been calling for the limit on Dyers Pass Rd to be reduced from 100km/h to 70km/h for years. The committee decided to receive the information. City councillor Aaron Keown said he wanted to push for the limit to be lowered in Yaldhurst, such as on Guys Rd, as a trial. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think speed limits should be lowered on certain streets in Christchurch?

In Brief LOCKER ROOM THEFT Canterbury University rugby players returned to their locker room on Saturday after a hardfought win over New Brighton to find their wallets, cellphones and other personal items, as well as the club till, stolen. Club chairman Chris Risbridger said it was a bit of a dampener after the win and police have been notified. If anyone has any information, phone 363 7400 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. CAR PARKS MAY BE LOST Five parking spaces could be lost outside businesses on the corner of Holmwood Rd and Rossall St. The Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board will make a decision on the installation of a pedestrian island on the corner of Holmwood Rd at its meeting on Monday. It would cause at least five 10 minute parking spaces to be removed. HERB GARDEN NAME The Botanic Gardens’ herbarium could be named after a former employee who grew the facility’s specimen collection. The city council’s social and community development committee has voted to recommend it be named the Lawrie Metcalf Herbarium. Mr Metcalf began working at the gardens in the 1940s.

Jimmy Barnes to spearhead Lincoln rock event with an iconic line-up of Australasian groups. It will be held on March 3. Barnes will be joined by The Feelers, Mental as Anything, Stellar, The Mockers, The Narcs, The Lady Killers and The Warratahs. Organiser and Lincoln resident David Parlane said the

line-up is sensational and he is excited to have secured a class act such as Barnes to headline the show. “We couldn’t do the same as what we did this year, we had to do something a little different and make it bigger and better . . . this year has got a little bit more of a feel for everybody,” he said.

It was estimated more than 7500 packed into Lincoln Domain for the inaugural concert in March. •Tickets for Selwyn Sounds will be made available on Ticketek on July 3 with a limited number of early bird tickets.

Weather, contract stalls road resealing „„ By Gabrielle Stuart DELAYS IN resealing part of Durham St is being partly caused by a financial agreement between Ōtākaro Ltd and contractor Downer. The Government agency said yesterday Downer will not work on the road until the ground temperature rises above 10 deg C, which is unlikely to happen before spring. An Ōtākaro spokesman said there was a risk the seal would fail if the road was too cold. If Ōtākaro ordered Downer to seal the road anyway, in spite of the cold weather, Ōtākaro would have to bear the cost if the seal failed and the road had to be resurfaced, he said. Under the current arrange-

ment, that risk is borne by Downer. Durham St is being upgraded as part of the An Accessible City project. Work is still being done on the footpath, planting and underground services along Durham St over winter. Christchurch Central Business Association chairman Brendan Chase said the delay was incredibly frustrating for business owners in the area, as the traffic jams and lost parking there could drive away customers. “It needs to be finished expeditiously,” he said. Some contractors are still resealing roads in other parts of the city, even over winter. City council planning and de-

livery transport manager Lynette Ellis said each contract was assessed on a “risk basis” to decide

if the work could go ahead. If the risk was deemed low, some work could be undertaken,

she said. “It’s important to note there are a number of variables that impact this decision-making process. It’s not a case of comparing individual jobs, because the specifications are all different,” she said. She said the standards were set by the NZ Transport Agency. According to an explanation on the NZTA website, resealing was best done in summer, when warm temperature and dry air helped the new seal stick. “If we did the work in winter, the cold ground would mean the new surface would harden and crack, plus the stones in the chip seal could pop out if exposed to cold weather within four weeks of application,” it said.

Hollywood beckons Parker-Hulme killer Internationally acclaimed crime writer Anne Perry was once known as Juliet Hulme, one half of Christchurch’s most infamous murder duo. She is now off to Hollywood SPACIOUS: Anne Perry’s house has been converted from the remains of an old barn. Italian chandeliers hang from the ceiling.

SHE’S BEST known in Christchurch for one of the city’s most infamous murders – the Parker-Hulme case – the teenager who killed her best friend’s mother and sparked the story for Peter Jackson’s Heavenly Creatures. But in Britain, Anne Perry, who she changed her name to, is a multi-million selling crime novelist. Now, she’s left her Scottish Highland idyll and has moved to Hollywood in her quest to have more of her novels adapted for television, Britain’s Daily Mail has reported. Perry, who has been dubbed the “queen of Victorian crime” and has sold more than 25 million books worldwide. “I’ll miss the views and I’ll miss my gardens,” said the 78-year-old, as she reminisces about Tyrn Vawr, her four-bedroom property on the outskirts of the peaceful Easter Ross fishing village of Portmahomack in the Scottish Highlands. “Fortunately, it’s all in my mind and in photographs, so I can go back any time I want.” Perry moved into Tyrn Vawr a quarter of a century ago and has written most of her books there. But in Christchurch she is remembered for the shocking murder of friend Pauline Parker’s mother, Honora Parker, in 1954. With Pauline, her school friend at Christchurch Girls High School, Honora was lured

INFAMOUS: Anne Perry, formerly Juliet Hulme (right), is selling her Scottish Highlands home.

to the Port Hills near Victoria park, where they bashed her over the head with a brick in a stocking. Both girls were jailed for five years. They were considered too young for the death penalty. Hulme disappeared from New Zealand after her release. In 1994, Peter Jackson turned the story into the film Heavenly Creatures and Kate Winslet played Hulme’s character. Perry has said of her part in the killing that she “made a profoundly wrong decision”. Having been told that she

would be going to live in South Africa, and with Parker’s mother standing in the way of the two teenagers both moving there, she feared Parker would take her own life “and it would be my fault”. Perry told The Daily Mail: “I was guilty and it was the right place for me to be,” she said of the jail sentence. Upon release, Perry took various jobs and for a time lived in the United States, before settling in Portmahomack. She published her first book under the name Anne Perry in 1979.

It was The Cater Street Hangman, the first in her Inspector Pitt series, which two decades later was turned into an ITV television movie starring Keeley Hawes. Perry, who has written more than 50 novels and who published the 32nd Inspector Pitt story last year, has done most of her work while living at the Scottish home, which she is particularly attached to because she built it herself – practically from scratch. It is now on sale for offers over £440,000 (NZ$790,000). Originally, she explains, “it

was a wreck next door to the house I was living in. I heard they had got planning permission to make it into a shop that would mend motor-cycles and lawnmowers and I thought: ‘Not next to me you don’t’. “So I bought it in self-defence and then I looked at the ruins and thought it would make a marvellous house.” In the course of her writing career in Scotland, Perry spent most of her time at work in her special study, which has windows on three sides. The contemporary look of the property belies the fact that it has been converted from the remains of an old barn. Built in the shape of an H, the property has a spacious kitchen, library and sun room, and a conservatory that looks out on to a courtyard with a pond and water feature. Upstairs, there are views of the Scottish Highlands. “You can see five counties,” Perry explains: “Caithness, Sutherland, Ross, Invernessshire, and Moray.” The dining room is capable of seating 20 people and a pair of Italian chandeliers hang from the ceiling in the grand hall. A keen lover of wildlife, Perry has sought to protect the beautiful surroundings she has enjoyed for future generations by buying up a neighbouring 7ha field and creating a trust to ensure it isn’t built on.

Golden Oldies tsunami to hit city In just under a year, Christchurch will host the largest sporting event it has ever seen – but this one is more about having fun than winning. Bridget Rutherford reports THEY ENJOY social sport and a good after-match function. And next year, more than 10,000 Golden Oldies will come to Christchurch in the largest sporting event the city has ever seen. The aim? Fun, friendship and fraternity. The Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration will run throughout April at different locations in the city. But this event, organised by sport event management, tour and travel company Vintage Sport and Leisure, will be different to any others in Golden Oldies’ history. Vintage Sport and Leisure chief executive Peter McDermott said it was designed especially for the city following the September 4, 2010, and February 22, 2011, earthquakes. “[Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority] asked if we could do something that would be a bit different and encouraging for people to learn that Christchurch, despite its problems, was well and truly regenerating.” Normally, Golden Oldies’ tournaments for each sport are held in different international cities every two years. But come April, the event will combine 10 different sports. Lawn bowls, golf, squash, football and basketball are new, while the traditional rugby, cricket, netball, hockey and softball will feature as well. “We’ve never done 10 sports in one place. This is designed specially for Christchurch,” Mr

HAVING FUN: Christchurch’s Jacqui Francis, Jude Tuuta, Debbie Elstob, Paula Goodman and Rose Cavanagh went to Hobart last year to compete in Golden Oldies netball.

McDermott said. “We anticipate about 10,000 participants, of which probably 75 per cent to 80 per cent will come from overseas or outside of Christchurch.” Hagley Park will be the event hub, with rugby, cricket, football and netball played there. Nunweek Park, Cowles Stadium, Mizuno Ballpark and Papanui Bowling Club will host the other codes, with golf being played across Harewood, Christchurch, Pegasus and Terrace Downs golf clubs. The squash venue will be finalised soon. Mr McDermott said although Golden Oldies was open to anyone over 35, the bulk of participants were between 45-65. Most participants were from New Zealand and Australia. But competitors from Japan, Russia, the United States, Canada, England and Ireland will make the journey as well. The oldest rugby player who had taken part was 87, while at

last year’s Golden Oldies World Rugby Festival in Cardiff there were 10 players aged over 80. It’s not just the sport they come for. “They’re a very social group,” Mr McDermott said. “They enjoy their sport and to mix and mingle and meet other people.” The event is expected to bring $33 million of direct economic benefit to Canterbury. “Based on our past history, they are big spenders on entertainment, food and beverage, and retail.” Canterbury Chamber of Commerce chief executive Peter Townsend said the city now had the infrastructure to accommodate an event of this magnitude. “It will have a very positive economic impact,” he said. “We’re going to have a massive influx of people who will be able to see first-hand what stage we are at recreating our city, and how good it’s all starting to look, and they will go away and tell their friends and family what is

on offer here. That will be a huge stimulus for the city.” City councillor Tim Scandrett said those attending were generally big spenders and it was great to be able to showcase postquake Christchurch. “It’s really important to show that we are back up and running.” For some participants, Golden Oldies isn’t their first taste of international competition. Previously, it has attracted ex-internationals such as Brumbies coach and former Wallaby Stephen Larkham, former All Black prop Greg Somerville and West Indies cricketing legend Joel Garner. But Mr McDermott said that didn’t intimidate other competitors. In fact, it was quite the opposite. “They love it.” At one event, Larkham played 10min for every team and 10min against so everyone got to play with and against him, Mr McDermott said. It was too early to

say whether there would be any familiar faces playing next year. But Mr McDermott said Garner was likely to attend, although he was not expected to take to the pitch. Although most of the games were social, there were still heated rivalries. “There are rivalries, some teams come back frequently. The Australian and Kiwis have a good, friendly rivalry, but they like to have the bragging rights.” And sometimes, there is an opportunity to win a world record. At Cardiff’s Golden Oldies World Rugby Festival, participants broke the Guinness World Record for the largest scrum. Welsh referee Nigel Owens officiated the scrum, which was made up of 1300 people. “We’re looking for ideas to do something similar in Christchurch,” Mr McDermott said. He said it would “probably” be the first and last time the Golden Oldies’ event will be held in this format, because it was difficult to find a city that could host every code. But it will be an event to remember for many. “Some of the friendships established 20 years ago are still very strong,” he said. •If you would like to sign up to take part or volunteer in the event, visit https:// christchurchgoldenoldies. com/

Well-deserved Jim THERE IS one name on this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours List that I want to especially celebrate. And that name is James Patrick Anderton. Jim’s political exploits and achievements on the national stage are well known. But it’s the local achievements of a man, who understands to his very core that all politics are local, which I want to acknowledge. What he saw in his own street and throughout his electorate shaped his views. I was 10-years-old when Jim became my local member of Parliament. I still vividly remember in 1984 watching Jim holding a street corner meeting outside our Spreydon family home. There was a buzz about that election and I was captivated by the idea that it had come to our street. I was also pretty stoked that someone I had seen on the telly was standing outside our house. Throughout my childhood, I watched a man with immense courage and conviction stand up for the people he represented. These were hard times for many in south Christchurch, as the

Addington rail yards closed and other jobs disappeared. It was these people that Jim stood up for. No issue was too small for Jim to get involved in. When the council came up with a plan to cut down the trees in our street a group of local residents, including my mum, called in Jim. He came and met with everyone and today those trees are still standing. When I began volunteering on Jim’s campaigns in the late 1990s, I met a kind and caring man for whom political decisions never seemed overly tortured. He knows what is right and what is wrong. From Jim, I have learnt many things – among them the importance of local people and what it is to represent your neighbours, the need to take a stand and to be unwavering in your convictions. Well done and thank you Jim from all of us. •Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman

Mackenzie Kane had given up on ever seeing her little dog Baxter again. Yet somehow the 10-year-old bichon frise was returned home after being lost for more than a year Denise Kerr – My son’s [dog]went missing for a few hours and we were devastated. I can’t imagine what it was like for a year. So pleased you have your [dog] home. I bet he is too. Coral Douglas – How can someone keep a dog that doesn’t belong to them. Did they not think of the family in pain missing their beloved family member? Snuggle Inn Boarding Kennels – Another happy story. Enjoy having your cute boy Baxter home.

Caryll Craig – Look at that face. I bet someone else thought he was beautiful too and ‘borrowed’ him for a while. The city council said they will fix the cracked and uneven tiles in Akaroa township after pensioner Sue Stewart tripped and grazed her face Dale Bradley-Page – Good on you. So pleased your injuries weren’t much worse. You could have had a nasty broken wrist or hip. Councils spend too much time making reports on what needs doing

instead of just getting on with doing it. Maree Clayton – Look what’s planted there. Trees! They grow their roots, push up the pavers, damage footpaths and roads. And still the council plant them on our footpaths, along our streets. Their leaves block storm water drainage and gutters. Kim Mckinley – Good on her, everyone needs to get on board with this, it’s disgusting in any town/city and so dangerous for the elderly and mums with prams.

Survey shows our well-being ‘continues to improve’ THE REGENERATION process often focuses on physical things – land, housing, infrastructure and facilities – but the health and well-being of the people of greater Christchurch is even more important. That’s why the Canterbury District Health Board and Ministry of Health closely monitor our social recovery. A key aspect of the monitoring process is CDHB’s Canterbury well-being survey. The survey monitors perceptions of recovery and identifies trends in the community’s wellbeing.

Nicky Wagner I’m pleased to say the latest survey, released on Tuesday, shows the well-being of greater Christchurch residents continues to improve. As part of my ongoing commitment to keeping the community as up-to-date as possible, the most recent Greater Christchurch Dashboard features data

from the well-being survey. It shows 82 per cent of respondents – or more than eight out of 10 – rate their quality of life positively, unchanged from April 2016, but up from 74 per cent in September 2012. The proportion of people who say their quality of life has deteriorated also remains unchanged from

April 2016, at 13 per cent. Stress is still a factor in greater Christchurch, with 72 per cent saying they’ve experienced some negative stress in the last 12 months, but significantly fewer are indicating distress and anxiety associated with aftershocks, or being in a damaged environment/surrounded by construction work (11 and 10 per cent respectively). In the early days after the quakes, these figures were much higher – 42 and 30 per cent respectively. The data tells us that although there are definitely still earthquake-related stressors in greater

Christchurch, the situation is improving over time. Fewer people are affected by ongoing insurance and rebuild issues and more people are responding to tangible signs of progress. Everyone in Greater Christchurch has been stretched over the last six years – we know that from our own experiences and talking to friends and family. A survey like this provides a bigger, clearer picture of our overall experience and I think many people will be reassured by the results. •Nicky Wagner is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration

¼ cup Coconut milk

Heat the oven to 190 deg C. Line a 17cm round cake tin with baking paper. Place the eggs and sugar in an electric mixer and beat until light and fluffy (to the ribbon stage). Using a large metal spoon, fold in the coconut oil and lemon zest. Sift over the flour and baking powder and carefully fold in. Lastly, using two to three movements, fold through the diced pineapple and coconut. Do not overfold or you will lose all the air you have beaten in. Pour into the prepared tin and place in the oven. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for five minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool. To make the icing, combine the icing sugar with the coconut milk until you have a smooth mixture. Spread icing over the top surface of the cake and allow to drizzle down over the edges.

GARDENING ADVICE

23

$80

PRIZE PACK!

with

We have a town section and wish to plant an apple and a plum tree. To have fruit producing over a long time we are thinking of planting grafted trees with two varieties on each tree. However, we have heard of back to back planting where a tree of each variety is planted beside each other in the same hole. This would be slightly more expensive. Which system is best? Do Gala and Pacific Rose apples complement each other or should we plant Gala and Braeburn? What about Santa Rosa and Omega plums?

QUESTION

Roses provide lush flowers, delicious scents and add charm to any garden. June and July are the best months to plant, relocate and prune roses (once dormant). When choosing the perfect plant for your garden or pots, choose from; Old Fashioned, Hybrid Tea, Floribunda, Shrub or Climber varieties.

Today’s winning question came from Wendy Holden. Congratulations! A double grafted tree is far more preferable than planting two single trees side by side. Competition for root space, nutrients and water all work against the second option.

ANSWER

We have a Daltons Premium Rose pack to give away which includes everything you will need to plant and grow healthy roses. Valued at over $80, it contains:

BE IN TO WIN!

With apples, the Gala and Braeburn combination will provide an extended season of picking ripe fruit. Gala commences ripening in mid to late February, while Braeburn (a late apple), ripens in April. Braeburn is also an excellent ‘keeper apple’, therefore as your tree matures and provides plentiful apples, you can successfully store them for eating until early winter. The plum combination you have enquired about is perfect as plums have specific pollinators. Fortunately, Santa Rosa pollenates Omega, and Omega pollenates Santa Rosa. Both are superb eating plums and extend the fruiting season with Santa Rosa ripening in January and Omega in February. As plums can grow into very large trees, prune them to a height of three to four metres so the fruit is easily accessible and less prone to ‘bird raiding’. New season apple and plum trees should arrive in local garden centres in the next few weeks. Products to try: Daltons Goldcote Fruit and Citrus Tree Fertiliser, Daltons range of Compost products and Daltons Mulch & Grow.

2x Daltons Compost Daltons Premium Rose Fertiliser 2 x Daltons Premium Flower Bed Mix PLUS a pair of comfortable, versatile Red Back gardening gloves from Omni Products (www.omniproducts.co.nz)

Celery – good things take time „„ By Henri Ham

LIKE MOST winter vegetables, celery takes time to grow and mature. Maybe it’s cheaper and it’s certainly easier to buy from the supermarket. But as many of our customers know, growing your own vegetables is about more than that. Namely, knowing what’s gone on to your food before you eat it, and the sense of satisfaction and enjoyment from growing it yourself. To grow great celery, the first thing you need to do is prepare your soil. Celery likes soil that’s

well- drained and sweet (and in a full sun position), so make sure you add lime before planting. If you’re equipped to measure PH levels, the reading should be between five and six. Celery also grows best in a garden that’s raised and filled with potting mix – so if you can make this combination happen, you’re off to a great start. When you’re ready to plant, dig a hole approximately 3cm deep. Pop in your seedling and use compost to create a mound around the plant. This blanches the base of the stems and keeps them tender. The good news is you don’t

have to keep mounding like you do with some plants – just keep your celery watered and that should do the trick. Plant each seedling 20 to 25cm apart and continue this process in rows across your garden. Celery grows best this way, making it a good companion plant for dwarf beans, carrots, spring onions, parsley and bok choy. In fact, if you have any of these in your garden and they’re ready to harvest, celery is the perfect replacement plant. Your plants will develop slowly at first, but in about 12 to 14 weeks, your celery should be ready to harvest.

Theatre/Arts

Neighbourhood unites in fear of lunar eclipse Empire Drive Written and produced by Two Productions Reviewed by Georgia O’Connor-Harding Not knowing your next door neighbour from a bar of soap is commonly a sad reality in a city. Inspired by disconnected neighbourhoods, Two Productions has created a relevant, original show about what happens to neighbours when a natural disaster strikes. Set in a typical residential cul-de-sac, Empire Drive is filled with every kind of character you would expect to see in a street. A loved-up, middle-aged couple called Mr and Mrs Midas; a party-mad flat full of students known as the nymphs; and a lonely elderly lady named Tiresias are some of the colourful characters inspired by ancient mythology living on the street. The story begins with Empire Drive residents “travelling” onto the stage in an imaginary bus with loud music playing in the background. Although I was not a fan of the music, it represented a busy city lifestyle the daily06/10/16 grind Star 129mmand x 90mm

of work or school. Up until the feared lunar eclipse occurs, the only time the neighbours interact with each other was when they were putting the rubbish bins out. But that all changes when they worry they may never see the light again and turn to each other for support. It is difficult to choose a favourite performer because there were so many characters with different stories. But the show’s strong message shone through about getting to know your neighbours during a disaster. For a group of people aged between 16-22 to create such an original show is admirable and I think the city needs to support new work. Hopefully, next time, the company will be able to perform for a season longer than one night.

„„ By Caitlin Miles THE LYTTELTON Arts Factory will hold its opening show of the season tomorrow night. Let’s Not Argue will be art imitating a certain amount of life – husband and wife David Ladderman and Lizzie Tollemache will put their real life relationship on display when they play husband and wife in the show. The original play depicts the best, the worst and the funniest parts of the everyday interactions between husband and wife, including the ever-changing gender roles and dynamics. The 60min show includes 100 moments, four fights, three make-ups and 24 cups of tea. Tollemache said out of all of the shows the couple has done, and roles they’ve played, this was the scariest. “We have juggled chainsaws and been in life-threatening situations purely for other people’s entertainment, but this is the most terrifying thing we have ever done; performing as a married couple, with my own husband, is just so real,” Tollemache said. It’s not the first time the couple has acted together, they played

Sample the shops and cuisine of Seoul „„ By Mike Yardley WHEN I mentioned to my Korean hairdresser in Christchurch that I was heading to Seoul, his response was hardly reaffirming. “Why would you want to go there?” Sure, Seoul doesn’t enjoy the reputational hype of Tokyo, Shanghai or Bangkok, but as a quick stopover or side-trip, the city struck me as immensely engaging. Arriving into Seoul by fast train from Incheon Airport, one of the first imposing landmarks to stop me in my tracks was Namdaemun, the city’s South Gate, resplendently restored after being bombed during the Korean War. The gate forms part of Seoul’s old city walls, of which 70 per cent are remarkably intact. Over 600 years old, the 18km circuit wraps around the city core and threads together the four guardian mountains that keep watch over Seoul. The city continues rebuilding the missing chunks but if you’re up for a power-walk, in every sense, head to the Bukaksan section. The highest of the four peaks at 342m, it stands guard over Korea’s seat of power and the summit viewpoint overlooks the Blue House, Korea’s splendid presidential palace. There’s a variety of royal palaces clustered around the central city including Gyeongbokgung, Seoul’s premier palace which has performed a Phoenix-like resurrection, from the cinders of destruction. It was from here that the Joseon Dynasty ruled the roost for 600 years, before the Japanese muscled in. A highly theatrical changing of the guard is performed daily, purely as a patriotic fist-pump, around the entrance gate of Gwanghwamun. The blaze of colourfully-costumed regalia is loved by the locals as much as the selfie-stick toting tourists. Gyeongbokgung translates as the Palace of Shining Happiness, a colossal compound of astounding

architecture, ornamental gardens and vivid history. It previously contained 800 buildings and 200 gates. The Joseon kings had several thousand servants at their disposal within the royal household, including 500 ladies-in-waiting and 400 eunuchs. Trying to get your head around the sheer extravagance of this imperial relic is best decoded with a good guide. I explored the palace as part of a city tour with VIP Travel, who run a great-value and illuminating guided sightseeing service. www.vviptravel.com Perfectly perched in the heart of Seoul’s cultural district, Courtyard by Marriott Seoul Namdae-

mun delivers a distinct experience, with the carnival colour of Namdaemun Market, right across the road. Just one year old, this engaging property still has new-hotel-smell, and elegantly furnished with all the creature comforts you’d expect from an ultra-contemporary hotel. Wi-fi is free and lightningfast, guestrooms are spacious and the city views are electrifying. You’ll enjoy 24-hour access to the generously equipped fitness centre, outstanding concierge services, impeccable hospitality and all-day dining at Momo Café. If you want to push the boat out, upgrade to executive lounge access, where you can enjoy an indulgent and exclusive space

loaded with privileges, headlined by complimentary Happy Hour drinks and meal-worthy bites, showcasing a wide palette of Asian culinary delights. courtyard.marriott.com The streets of Seoul are packed with culinary delights and a onestop-shop for bargain buys and great bites is the Namdaemun Market, a frenetic night-and-day emporium that sprawls for blocks and is Korea’s biggest market. Whether its clothing, accessories or handicrafts, each section comprises hundreds of stalls, spilling across pedestrianised streets. The sensory overload is most graphically illustrated by the profusion of food stalls, sizzling with binge-worthy things on sticks and in bowls, which will soon challenge your stomach space. Best bites include odeng, fishcake skewers seasoned in springonion soup; tteokbokki, spicy rice cakes that are revved up with redpepper paste; and dakkochi, the ubiquitous barbequed chicken on skewers in a sticky, tangy sauce. They are nearly as pervasive as kimchi, Korea’s great staple of salted, seasoned and fermented vegetables. Don’t leave town without trying Korean doughnuts, hotteok, spicy pancakes stuffed with sunflower seeds, peanuts, red beans and honey. Namdaemun Market is

centrally located in Myeongdong, which is Seoul’s shopaholic mecca. All of the global fashion heavyweights are here, alongside chic Asian faves and the templelike department stores. Pop into Mitsukoshi, the Harrods of Seoul, and the city’s oldest department store with an opulent food hall in the basement. My local guide told me that 20 pr cent of Seoul’s women have facial surgery. They binge on cosmetic perfectionism and you’ll see a surfeit of specimens in Mitsukoshi. FAST FACTS •I booked my side-trip to Seoul from Japan through the leading global airfare comparison platform, Cheapflights. Apparently, the popularity of Cheapflights has now reached the level where its website and app booking traffic fills a 747 every five minutes! It’s brilliantly simple to use, highly intuitive and super smart, loading up all available flights and fares, for your preferred time, date and destination.

Dr Michael Edmonds, Head of Engineering and Architectural Studies at Ara, says places are still available on the diploma course starting in July. “We’ve had good numbers of enrolments so far, but with ongoing demand from employers for graduates, we want to make sure every place is filled, to help meet this demand.” Dr Edmonds says many people assume you need a degree – which can take three years at Ara, or four years at Canterbury or Auckland universities - to have a career in engineering, but that’s not the case. “Graduates of our two-year diploma earn an average salary of $60,000 in their first five years on the job, and they have great opportunities for advancement, both here

and overseas. You might choose to work in a lab or workshop, or you can just as easily work in design, management or consulting roles with our diploma qualification.” The Diploma in Engineering offers three specialisations; civil, electrical and mechanical. An ability in maths is necessary but you don’t need to be a maths whizz. Entry requirements include passes in algebra and calculus at NCEA Level 2, however if you don’t have those, Ara has foundation programmes designed to help you attain them. In a further effort to help meet industry demand for engineering graduates, both the Diploma in Engineering and the Bachelor of Engineering Technology can be studied part time at Ara.

Bodene Thompson’s Warriors future in doubt „„ By Michael Burgess BODENE Thompson’s days at the Warriors could be numbered. The Warriors second rower is off contract at the end of this season, and it appears unlikely that he will be at Mt Smart in 2018 and beyond. Negotiations have been ongoing between the player’s representatives and the club for some time, but the NZ Herald understands that things are currently at a stalemate.

It doesn’t help Thompson’s case that the club have signed Tohu Harris and Leivaha Pulu for next season, and the new duo are likely be the first choice second row combination, alongside Simon Mannering at lock. That would mean Thompson would slip down the pecking order at the club, while the continuing emergence of Bunty Afoa and Isaiah Papalii will further boost back row stocks at Mt Smart.

Warriors being torn apart down that side in several games this season. Sure, Thompson wasn’t helped by playing out of position in the first three rounds (at hooker in round one against the Knights and in the centres in rounds two and three) but he has also struggled to match his output from the previous two years. He’s averaging only 50 running metres a game this season (down from 85m in the previous two years) and hasn’t had the same

impact with ball in hand. “I don’t know my plans for next season yet,” Thompson told NZ Herald last month. “I will handle it week by week and then whatever happens, happens. Obviously you always want to stay at the Warriors but you need to take care of business out on the field each week first.” The Warriors meet the Gold Coast Titans on Saturday at Cbus Super Stadium in Robina, Queensland.

Thompson hasn’t helped his cause this season, with a series of unconvincing performances, including a sub-standard display in the Warriors 32-24 loss to the Eels in Sydney. Thompson was one of the best players at the club in the 2015 season – especially in the first half of the year – and seemed a great recruit. But the 28-year-old has struggled to recapture his form since then. He’s been part of a vulnerable right edge defensively, with the

Irish look to sign Crusaders prop

In Brief MOASCAR CUP BID Rangiora High School play against Nelson College for the Moascar Cup in the UC Championship on Saturday. Rangiora have been the surprise package of this year’s competition and currently occupy third with just one loss to their name. They now travel to Nelson to challenge for the cup (secondary school’s equivalent of the Ranfurly Shield). Nelson have held the cup since claiming it from Timaru Boys’ High School last year. Only four Canterbury schools have ever held it. KUDOS FOR HAGLEY OVAL THe Hagley Oval turf management team has taken the major gong at New Zealand Cricket’s pitch of the year awards. The team was judged responsible for preparing the ‘international pitch of the year’ on the basis of players’ reports, match official reports and other feedback collated through the 2016-17 season. Hagley Oval consistently delivered high quality surfaces for tests against Pakistan and Bangladesh, and for the ODIs against Bangladesh and South Africa.

CRUSADERS PROP Oliver Jager may be lured back to Ireland to play for powerhouse club Leinster. The 21-year-old arrived from Ireland in 2013 to develop his game and earned himself a spot in the Crusaders squad this year. But reports out of Ireland say Leinster who were semi-finalists in both this year’s Pro 12 and European Rugby Champions Cup, could be interested in signing him. “Look, we’ll see,” Jager told the Herald in Ireland. “I’m out of contract at the end of this season, but we’re working on a new one at the moment. Nothing’s been confirmed yet. “It’s literally gone day-by-day. Now, it’s going yearby-year and, hopefully, the next few years will go every two, three years. “That’s just the way rugby is. You never really know where you’re going to end up.” Jager grew up in Dublin and played for Ireland at school level, representing his country in the under-18 European championship. He joined the New Brighton club after making the move from Ireland, initially playing for the colts and then the division one team. Last year he made the Canterbury ITM Cup team and produced a number of impressive performances which earned him a spot in the Crusaders. Jager started for the NZ Barbarians in their 7-13 loss to the Lions in Whangarei on Saturday night, where he matched up with England’s Mako Vunipola and Ireland captain Rory Best in the front row. IRISHMAN: Oliver Jager has impressed in New Zealand and is now attracting interest back home.

Stolen trailer mars home rally win for Summerfield

on the

PLACEMAKERS PRIZE WHEEL* 21 CHANCES TO WIN OVER 3 DAYS!

„„ By Gordon Findlater MATT Summerfield’s push to win this year’s New Zealand Rally Championship has been grounded following the theft of his car transporter. Summerfield, 25, was on cloud nine after winning his home event, the Canterbury Rally on Sunday. However, he now needs to hope the transporter is found before the next round of the national championship in Coromandel in August. “I’m pretty gutted. We use it to get to all of our events,” said Summerfield. The transporter was stolen from Colenso St, Sumner, on Sunday night, just hours after one of the biggest wins in his career. The registration is 1129L. It has a single axle with new BNT wheels, it has tilt ramps and LED lights and has a black draw-bar. “We’ve had it for nearly 20 years. Dad (Les) built it himself in 1999 to transport his car at the time,” said Summerfield. Since it’s disappearance, a Facebook post seeking information on the trans-

MUDDY: Summerfield streaked ahead of the field in slippery conditions in Ashley Forest. PHOTO: ALLAN PRITCHARD

porter has gained traction on social media. As of yesterday, the post had been shared by over 1500 people. “We’ve had a few offers to borrow a transporter which is really nice and people are really spreading the word to help track it down,” said Summerfield. On Sunday Summerfield and his sister Nicole (codriver) showed all of their class to lead home Ben

Hunt in second place by more than 2min in wet conditions in Ashley Forest. Summerfield currently leads the NZRC mid-way through the season. After retiring from the opening round in Otago with a broken gearbox just 2km into the opening stage he has gone onto win the next two rounds in Whangarei and Canterbury. He is already battling against the odds, competing in a 10-year-old Subaru. The majority of the front-runners in the championship are operating new AP4 vehicles. The championship has three rounds remaining in Coromandel, Waitomo and Rally New Zealand. “Things are on track. We finished second in Coromandel last year so will go in with plenty of confidence,” said Summerfield.

Concussion continues to hamper Hurricanes season CONCUSSION continues to bedevil the Hurricanes season. Dane Coles remains in a frustrating holding pattern, unable to train at a high enough intensity to be in the clear. But assistant coach John Plumtree has revealed to the NZ Herald that lock Mark Abbott was a late scratching from the bench for the Force game due to concussion symptoms suffered after the Bulls game on May 28. Hooker Ricky Riccitelli took

a head knock in the 34-12 win in Perth, but has since had no symptoms, so should be available to face the Chiefs in the capital tomorrow. Leni Apisai, fresh from a try and 30 effective minutes, will be ready to slot into the No 2 jersey if necessary. Happily, centre Matt Proctor, who was in sharp form early in the season until he too succumbed to concussion issues, came through 20 minutes unscathed on Monday for the

Hurricanes Development side in their 52-17 win over Wanganui at Cooks Gardens. He will be available to make his return tomorrow. His major hurdle now appears to be the incumbent midfield pairing of Ngani Laumape and Vince Aso, who have chalked up an astonishing 28 tries between them. The Hurricanes hold second spot in the New Zealand conference, four points clear of the Chiefs.

A victory would not only retain their unbeaten home record, but just about seal fifth place and a more welcome quarter-final in Australia. Only after that will they allow themselves to think about their June 27 clash with the Lions. Plumtree and head coach Chris Boyd, who have their 50th game together as a Hurricanes coaching combination (for an imposing record of 40-9), will be wanting their charges to match

The Star

Highlander true to Toyota ideology „„ By Ross Kiddie TOYOTA’S Highlander has long been regarded as the quintessential large sport utility vehicle. It’s known for its fourwheel-drive capability, powerful petrol engine, seven-seat configuration and high levels of refinement. All of those attributes have been expanded on with an all-new model landing here early this year. The new Highlander has lost none of its credibility, it has had an engine upgrade – power is up 17kW and 13Nm yet it also gets a 1.1l/100km fuel usage saving – it is now listed from a 9.1 to 9.5l/100km (31mpg) combined cycled average. Elsewhere, the Highlander reeks of sophistication, it is comfortable and has a wealth of specification, especially in Limited form as tested. Column space doesn’t allow for comprehensive detailing, but I can report it wants for nothing yet it could well be described as a value for money model. The new Highlander is also available in two-wheeldrive variations, there are three grades with the range starting at $63,490 for a 4WD GX variant, a GXL lists at $66,490 and $70,490 (4WD), while the Limited 4WD sits at $81,490. That’s top price for a car in this category, but if you want the epitome of sophistication it is the SUV that sets standards in the big sector. As mentioned, there’s a new engine in Highlander. It still gets a variation of the old V6 that has served Toyota and Lexus well, but the new engine has an edge over it with higher levels of refinement and those performance increases. It is now rated at 218kW with 350Nm of torque coming in at 4700rpm. Such is its smoothness it’s hard to fathom with a displacement of 3456cc all that reciprocating mass could be so unflustered. It is also a flighty engine when required, it sings freely through the rev band and likes to show off its strength. Drive is carried through an eight-speed automatic transmission, once again it is a beauty with undetectable shifts and a ratio structure that promotes quick acceleration and

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER: Large family-friendly SUV.

relaxed engine operation at highway speed. The more ratios that are packed into a gearbox always provide a smoother driving experience, and the Highlander’s driveline is a beauty, it also ushers in quick acceleration, with a likely standstill to 100km/h time of 8.7sec. • Price – Toyota Highlander Ltd, $81,490 • Dimensions – Length, 4890mm; width, 1925mm; height, 1730mm • Configuration – V6, four-wheel-drive, 3456cc, 218kW, 350Nm, eight-speed automatic • Performance – 0-100km/h, 8.7sec • Fuel usage – 8.7l/100km

Cruising at that speed it will sip fuel instantaneously at the rate of just 7l/100km (40mpg), the engine is very lethargic turning over slowly at just 1400rpm. I spent a lot of time in city traffic in the test car, so my overall average didn’t match Toyota’s, but when I took the test car back to the dealership it was still showing 9.6l/100km (29mpg) which I didn’t think was excessive. I took the test car on my usual loop west taking in a back road from Sheffield to Coalgate. It’s a badly rutted route, and from the outset the Highlander impressed with its suspension control over the corrugations and ability to put power to ground. The tyres on the test car were a Toyo compound (245/55 x 19in) and they extracted grip well along with providing a quiet ride on sealed surfaces. The same could be said of the entire vehicle, it sits on the outer periphery of

the luxury car market so its levels of noise, vibration and harshness are extremely low. That makes for a relaxing highway cruise. The steerage and suspension combine to prove an almost sporty sensation from behind the wheel, and that takes into account that at over two-tonne it is heavy wagon, yet it feels composed and far from bulky when a tricky corner presents itself. The suspension is a complex fully independent system, the Highlander isn’t quite as rugged underneath as its Fortuner stablemate, but both are destined for different markets, the Highlander is a crosscountry charger, and is certainly not a full off-road vehicle. That aside, most won’t venture far from the seal, and that’s why frontwheel-drive only models are available, but for those who do want to take the family camping to those high country lakes the four-wheel-drive variant is capable. The Highlander has space to burn inside, even with the rear row of seats upright. Toyota claim 195-litres extending to 1872-litres with all rear rows folded flat. Toyota have been served well by Highlander, it has been a popular model here. That doesn’t surprise me, it imparts an involving driving sensation, one of solidity and safety, the latter of course, five-star Australasian New Car Assessment Program rated. The new Highlander is sourced from Toyota’s United States manufacturing operation and reeks of quality. It is the familyfriendly wagon which does everything without fuss and always pleases with its all round performance and reliability.

Talk to us if you are serious about selling your “As is Where is” home. We have sold over 100 “As is Where is” homes and we have a huge database of qualified buyers.

It’s a rare house that doesn’t have defects. Even newly renovated ones can have features that detract for buyers. But there are ways for sellers to deflect attention from them without pretending they’re not there. The three main ways of dealing with defects are: 1. Fix them. 2. Draw the eye away from them. 3. Use them as a selling point. Simple defects can be fixed easily. Start out front. Overgrown bushes can be trimmed, or replaced with a few matching plants, old fences and front doors can be painted or stained, and the paths cleaned. Do this even if a property is a do-up.

You want to give the impression that buyers can move into the house and chip away at the work in their own time. If you have time and money, paint sills and eaves using accents. Inside, the first thing buyers see is the hallway, which can be brightened up with a lick of paint. The neutral paint trick can also be used to paint over dated wallpaper, completely changing the look and feel of a tired house. Bathrooms and kitchens are important to buyers, and the eye settles on vanities and benches. These can be resurfaced relatively quickly to give a modern look.

If the seller can’t repaint or tile the bathroom bring in high quality matching towels, which become a feature in the room and draw the eye from the less than desirable walls and features. Nice vases and flowers will do the same. Replacing handles and knobs to draw attention away from the units themselves. This reduces the number of “I have to do this” thoughts in potential buyers’ minds. Drawing the eye away from a multitude of sins is exactly the thing to do. If you see an empty house the eye always goes to marks on the carpet and walls and this will lower the price expectation.” Drawing the eye to the furniture and furnishings, creates better flow, and de cluttering makes buyers feel the home would be a nice place to live in. The other way to handle the property’s defects is to raise them with the buyer before they see them. If the carpet is bad, for example, you can say: “Hey, they were going to replace the carpet but they decided to leave it to you to choose a new carpet and priced it accordingly.” Finally, good old fashioned elbow grease is essential in all properties to remove those sins that are simply cleanable.

Hornby WMC | ph 03 349 9026 | 17 Carmen Road | Hornby 'IT’S A Kind of Magic' with Giles Taylor channeling Freddie at the helm 'rocked' the Horncastle Arena tonight. An enthusiastic crowd greeted the international Queen tribute act that is currently touring the country. Giles is an exemplary performer. Exuberant and oozing charisma, he completely won the audience over within opening numbers. Giles has Freddie mannerisms and look off to a tee. Pro�cient on vocals and piano, it's no wonder Freddie Mercury's personal assistant and biographer Peter Freestone has endorsed this show. A dynamo of energy taking full command of the stage and fearlessly invading the audience to interact up close with fans. But Queen isn't all about Freddie - it's the guitar wizardry of Brian May built on the strong foundation of John Deacon (bass) and Roger Taylor (drums). It's A Kind of Magic delivered. e band was tight and played �awlessly. Ritchie Baker as Brian nailed it. e total tribute package is impressive. Great sound, costumes, choreography, lights and use of multi-media.

OVER the past month Take Me Home : e Music & Life of John Denver starring Dunedin’s Bevan Gardiner has played an astounding 25 shows across 20 centres throughout New Zealand, concluding at the Isaac eatre Royal in Christchurch last night. It’s 20 years this year since John Denver died in a tragic air accident, aged 53 - and judging by last night’s packed audience, his music has not waned in popularity. Presented in a nicely constructed tribute show incorporating live performances of JD classics with archival �lm footage, Bevan and band presented a beautiful tribute to the icon. Adept on guitar with an uncanny vocal likeness to JD, Bevan gave a faultless performance that was enhanced by regular singing partner, Georgie Daniell. Directed by Vancouver’s Davey Walker on keyboards, a highly pro�cient band made up of Sydney based Darryl Walker (bass) and Glen Bain (lead guitar), along with Christchurch’s own Allan Cattermole (drums), provided impeccable backing and harmonious vocals. A must-see for any John Denver fan.
