Armed robber should never be let out

TRIBUTE: Christchurch artist Peter Majendie sits in one of the 185 white chairs.

Quake chairs move looms „„ By Gabrielle Stuart THE ARTIST behind the 185 Empty Chairs tribute is working to make it permanent – and creators of The Lord of the Rings movies may help to make it happen. Artist Peter Majendie is set to speak at a city council committee on Monday, asking for a permanent site for the chairs

which remember the 185 people who died in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. Mr Majendie has conducted an online survey and Latimer Square or the Botanic Gardens are the most popular options. The chairs are currently sited on the corner of Madras and Cashel Sts. Mr Majendie looked at

placing them on the CTV site, but Crown company Otakaro Ltd, which owns the site, turned down the proposal in February. If the city council approves a site, he plans to cast the chairs in metal to make the installation permanent. Weta Workshop, which built props and sets used in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, is one of the

companies Mr Majendie has approached about doing the metal-casting work. He said it would cost about $500,000 to set up the permanent installation, which landscaping, metal-casting and white powder-coating the chairs, and installing a ground lighting installation shaped like cracks underneath it. •Turn to page 5

„„ By Andrew King SERIAL ARMED robber Douglas Anderson Roake should never be let free. That is the view of the manager of The Brickworks bar in Cashmere which was robbed twice in March by the 23-yearold. He fired shots during the second robbery. Said the manager, who declined to be identified: “I don’t think he should ever get out. What he has done is completely life-changing,” “If he could do what he did to those young ladies out in Rolleston and all of us, what is to stop him doing it all over again. To pull a trigger, especially on another person is a whole other level.” Roake was captured by police after he shot two women in Rolleston during a home invasion in April, one was seriously injured. He then drove south to Ashburton and robbed a hotel later that night. He was apprehended at the Rakaia Huts the following morning. Roake pleaded guilty on Monday to the robbery of six hotels, two charges of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, and two charges of presenting a firearm. •Turn to page 4 •Interview with bar manager, bartender pages 6 & 7

Thursday June 15 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

IF YOU do the crime, you’ve got to do the time. And the manager of The Brickworks bar in Cashmere says serial armed robber Doug Roake should do a lot of time. On pages 1 and 6-7, the manager and a bartender who were held up – not once but twice by Roake – speak exclusively to reporter Andrew King. Very few people will ever have to face a loaded firearm, but these two women have experienced the terror twice. It’s a fear all hospitality staff have. During Roake’s reign of terror across Canterbury, hotels and bars were on alert fearing if they would be next. He had no issue about discharging his firearm – and the attack on two women in Rolleston, which ultimately led to his undoing, was testimony of that. So when the manager of The Brickworks says he should stay in jail for a very long time, she has a point. – Barry Clarke

At a Glance CUFF ’EM AND STUFF ’EM When you find yourself stuck in handcuffs, what do you do? You call into your local fire station. Specialist fire investigator Mark Thomas said in his weekly Star Media column a man walked into the Christchurch Central Fire Station on June 3, asking to be helped out of handcuffs. He said some discreet calls were made to find out if the handcuffs were the work of police. “It turns out the cuffs were the type available at certain adult shops and the poor fellow had been ‘trying them on.’ Ten minutes later he was on his way – handcuffs in pieces, Mr Thomas said.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw Kemp’s Deed signed by Ngai Tahu on June 12, 1848. It gave the New Zealand Company control of land from Kaiapoi to Otago. On June 13, 1909, Cafe Continental Hotel at Sumner was destroyed by fire. On June 14, 1923, New Zealand’s permanent air force was established at Sockburn with the Government taking over the Canterbury Aviation Company. Included in the takeover was Sockburn Aerodrome, which was renamed Wigram a few days later. On June 14, 1977, the worst ever daytime smog level was recorded – 750 mcg per cu m. On June 15, 1842, William Deans left Wellington to look for suitable farmland in the South Island. On June 16, 1932, the Robert McDougall Art Gallery was opened. It was a gift of R. E. McDougall, managing director of Aulsebrooks and Co.

News Quake buildings inquiry: No charges „„ By Gabrielle Stuart POLICE WILL not lay any charges in relation to the earthquake death at St Christopher’s Book Market on Riccarton Rd. Henry Ross Bush, 75, died when the facade collapsed on his parked car during the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Detective Inspector Darryl Sweeney said police are also unlikely to pursue charges into the death of apprentice tattooist Matt McEachen who died trying to escape falling rubble at the Southern Ink tattoo parlour on Colombo St. Police said yesterday they are awaiting final reports into their investigation into the collapse

of the CTV Building and the Ballantynes car park building on Lichfield St. Linda Arnold, 57, was killed when a concrete panel fell from the Ballantynes car park building, and 115 lives were lost in the CTV collapse. Detective Inspector Sweeney said police had assessed the Southern Ink case for

criminal charges and engaged several experts to examine the report. “They do not believe that charges should be laid in this case,” he said. Matt’s father Bruce McEachen said he had been waiting 2250 days to hear the result of the investigation, and he was absolutely gutted.

Survey ‘dictatorial style’ „„ By Bridget Rutherford HIGH PROFILE property developer Ernest Duval has likened a survey commissioned by the Anglican Church on the future of the Christ Church Cathedral to a method world dictators would use. Mr Duval, who heads City Owners Rebuild Entity, wrote a submission saying the survey was something that would Ernest Duval happen under Russian President Vladimir Putin, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, or North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. The survey, done by company Research First, was released on Tuesday and said 58 per cent wanted the Cathedral reinstated. In his submission, Mr Duval, who wants the Cathedral restored, said it was biased. “Good to know there are outfits like yours in the Market place and will pass your contact details to Messrs putin Assad Kim il Jun [sic],” he wrote. He said the comments were directed at the pollsters. “That’s the sort of thing they would do in those countries to get a result to support their political point of view.

in any particular way,” Church Property trustee Bruce Deam said. The survey first asked the 380 random participants whether they preferred reinstatement, a rebuild or if they did not mind. Then, when participants were told the “consequences,” such as the funding gap for reinstatement, the likelihood of an impact on rates, and the time frame, 23 per cent changed their minds.

In Brief RAVENSDOWN CLEARED A Worksafe investigation into the death of a contractor at Ravensdown on Main South Rd has been concluded. Worksafe have said it will be taking no action against the fertiliser company after the death of 73-year-old Keith Edward Hillery. Mr Hillery suffered serious burns from an electric shock on June 16, 2016. He was airlifted to the National Burns Centre at Middlemore Hospital in Auckland, where he later died. Five others were taken to hospital for smoke inhalation but were uninjured. BURGLARY CHARGES A man arrested for a number of burglaries in north-west suburbs has had further charges added. Robert William Northe, 30, now faces eight charges of burglary, possession of instruments for burglary and possession of cannabis. He will appear via videolink from Christchurch Men’s Prison on June 22. Eighty-three houses were burgled in Ilam, Bryndwr and Strowan over a 10week period. Detective Sergeant Ross Tarawhiti said more charges for Northe were likely. HOSPITAL FUNDRAISER The women fundraising to buy recliner chairs for the Christchurch Hospital children’s ward have nearly reached their target. Joanna Triplow and Renee Jones began fundraising to buy 12 hospital-standard recliners and pull-out beds to make the stays of families with sick children more comfortable. Mrs Triplow said they have been able to buy nine, and want to get three more. To donate, visit https://givealittle.co.nz/ fundraiser/12chairsforhdu

Stadium upkeep costs soar „„ By Bridget Rutherford THE COST of maintaining Addington’s AMI Stadium has jumped by more than $700,000 in the past year, renewing calls for a replacement facility. City council figures show the maintenance costs for the temporary facility were $998,532 in 2016. That jumped from $153,259 the year before. Christchurch Stadium Trust chief executive Tim Shannahan said the 2016 costs were higher because it included the Jamie Gough replacement of the floorboard decks in the three main stands. “The original decks installed in 2012 were identified at that time as having a life of five years before replacement would be necessary.” In March the city council granted building consent for $1 million of work to prolong the stadium’s lifespan to 2022. The replacement floorboard decks were part of that work. In 2012, the stadium’s maintenance costs were $102,576,

EXPENSIVE: The cost of maintaining the temporary AMI Stadium has jumped, renewing calls for a new multipurpose arena to be built as soon as possible.

followed by $95,072 in 2013, and $67,367 in 2014. Mr Shannahan said the figures included annual, scheduled and reactive maintenance. AMI Stadium opened in 2012 as a replacement for earthquakedamaged Lancaster Park. A multi-purpose arena is part of the central city blueprint to replace Lancaster Park to be funded by the Crown and city council. The Crown has already spent about $40 million acquiring land for it in the blocks between Hereford, Tuam, Madras, and Barbadoes Sts.

A business case for it was put on hold last year until the city council stated clear support for it. Now that Lancaster Park will be demolished, a pre-feasibility study for the replacement facility is under way. City councillor Jamie Gough said the multi-purpose arena needed to be built as soon as practically possible because AMI Stadium’s costs were “skyrocketing”. “It’s been put together with Blu-Tak and goodwill. We’ve had some incredible events but we need to be honest with ourselves, we’ve got these events

because we’re a charity case. We need to be serious about being a city again.” He said originally the replacement facility was meant to have been built by now, ready to host a Lions match. There was “every possibility” the construction of the new facility would be sped up as a result of the submissions on the Annual Plan, he said. In May, Crusaders chief executive Hamish Riach urged the city council to build a modern, fit-for-purpose facility as soon as possible in his annual plan submission.

Robbed twice: Manager, staff Armed robber Douglas Anderson Roake pleaded guilty this week to a string of violent hold-ups and a double shooting in Canterbury. Two of his victims speak exclusively to Andrew King

HORROR: Douglas Roake (right) twice used a gun to hold up The Brickworks in Centaurus Rd.

suffered panic attacks, insomnia, sleep paralysis since the robberies, but that is getting better now.” “You don’t want to relive it but you do every morning when we walk in the door.” “I’m still scared to enter the toilet [in the bar] because I am unsure who could be behind the door.”

Neither the bartender or manager will be identified. It is the first time they have spoken publicly, about the ordeal every hospitality worker dreads. When Roake could not get in he violently tried to open the door. The bartender was drying glasses behind the bar. She looked up and saw a man

hunched over with a gun pointed through the glass at her. The manager was stacking chairs on tables.

“I have the security, the companionship and everything I need.”

“OH I LOVE IT. IT’S ALL SO NEW.”

Jill made the move to a villa in her Summerset retirement village, after the passing of her husband. “We had discussed it in the past and thought it would be the best thing for me, for many reasons,” she says. Apart from tending to her lovely garden, she keeps a busy daily schedule. “There’s so much going on, so many activities… like film night, Happy Hour, exercise classes… it’s wonderful.”

“F**k I can’t believe this is happening again.” That was the first thing that came into the mind of a The Brickworks bar staff member when angry armed robber Douglas Roake shot his way in late on Wednesday night, March 29. Just two weeks earlier the staff member had been on duty when Roake had robbed the Centaurus Rd bar at gunpoint. This time Roake was very agitated. Unable to get in after the doors were locked as the last patrons were finishing up their drinks, he simply shot his way in. The damage from his shotgun is still visible. The robberies have taken their toll on the bartender and the manager who have endured both robberies. Said the bartender: “I have

“I was in disbelief that it was happening again. I just went into shock,” the manager said. The bartender crouched down and retreated to the kitchen to warn other staff they were being robbed again. The manager went to the back of the restaurant and phoned 111. She then heard the shot and quickly said into the phone: “If anyone can hear me, please help us.” Kitchen staff hearing the shot hid in the chiller. The bartender refused. “I don’t do well in enclosed places and didn’t want to be in there if he opened it and fired the gun inside,” she said. Roake entered through the hole he had blown in the door and demanded: “Come out with your hands up.” His voice was frantic. The bartender appeared from the kitchen hands up. The kitchen staff stayed in the chiller. She and another bartender were ordered on the ground, and the manager was ordered to fill a bag with money. The bartender knew it was the same robber from the previous hold-up. His voice gave him away.

tell of gunman’s terror “It was a surreal experience lying on the floor while there is a gunman in the building wanting money,” she said. Roake asked if there was a back way to leave. “No, everything is bolted shut,” the bartender said. Roake was agitated and very aggressive as he pointed the gun in a threatening manner telling them they “were doing well, I don’t want to hurt you, but if you move I will.” He then demanded money from the pokies, as he had during the first robbery. He was told it would take longer this time, as they had not cleared the machines. He ordered the manager and bartender into the pokie room for more cash before telling the bartender: “You come with me”. Panic filled. She thought she would be taken as a hostage. She decided she wouldn’t go without a fight. But all Roake wanted was for her to zip up his loot bag. She fumbled which made him angry. He yelled at her to hurry up. Roake told her to lie back down and he left through the hole in the front door. He walked a short distance along Centaurus Rd, but returned to pick up the

spent cartridge by the door. The manager says Roake was in the bar for at least 10min. When police arrived they ordered everyone out of the bar at gunpoint, something that was just as traumatic as the robbery itself, she said. The manager says the robberies have affected her. “Sometimes, I don’t want to be here, but I have too. You can’t run away in life, you have to confront the demons.” In the first robbery on March

14, Roake again struck at closing time. Staff waiting outside for a lift home were marched into the bar at gunpoint. They were ordered onto the ground and the manger told to hand over the money. He made everyone get on the ground while he demanded money from the manager. “You’re doing well ma’am,” Roake said as she complied with his orders. “When it happened I just turned into a zombie. I couldn’t

tell you what was going through my mind,” the manager said. She will always be puzzled why Roake targeted the bar, not once but twice. She and the bartender went to court to hear Roake. “We went to court to hear his voice to put our minds at ease that it was him and that the guy was not still out there,” the manager said. One way the manager and one of the bartenders have taken their mind off things is buying Fitbits, a device that monitors how many steps you take. That has now turned into a bit of a competition. “I am currently winning,” the manager laughed. Responding, the bartender said: “It is because she goes for huge walks in the morning before I have even got up.”

Roake’s robberies and shootings •March 10 – Tavern Harewood robbed at about 10.45pm. $18,982 was taken, but he dropped about $2000 while fleeing. •March 14 and 29 – The Brickworks was robbed twice.

Sexual assaults highest in Chch

CHRISTCHURCH had the highest number of sexual assault cases in the country, police figures show. From July 2014 to December 2016, Christchurch had 10,417 cases of victimisation complaints for acts intended to cause injury. Nationally, there were 118,732. Wellington had 4312 cases, Hamilton with 6063, and Counties-Manukau West with 5886. Acting Assistant Commissioner Sam Hoyle said Christchurch Metro was ranked top in New Zealand for sexual assault cases from mid-2014 to the end of last year. Many of the same factors associated with assaults around the country were also found in aggravated sexual assault incidents. “Central Christchurch, as we know, is sort of reopening and reinvigorating and nightlife is coming back. It hasn’t featured amongst the data much at all until the last year or two [due to the earthquake recovery],” Acting Assistant Commissioner Hoyle said. “These types of sexual assaults [tend to result from] big groups of people dispersing from clubs and pubs in the early hours of

the morning. Generally, these sexual assaults are not committed by strangers.” He said stranger attacks were still incredibly rare. In spite of a high number of hotels and backpackers in downtown areas, Acting Assistant Commissioner Hoyle said there was no evidence to suggest that tourists were sexual assault targets. Historically, he said data sug-

gests the vast majority of victims are locals making their way home through a more dangerous part of town. Police said one reason many sexual assaults are recorded in downtown Christchurch is because many crimes are reported at the Central Police Station, due to police being unable to determine an exact location. Acting Assistant Commissioner Hoyle said the national stats

WE ARE A ONE STOP SHOP

WINNING National Awards

were not a surprise and there was a “strain” on police resources to help keep the peace. “If you look at our biggest CBDs, they all feature around those common assaults, which doesn’t surprise me at all. “Where we have those strong night-time economies, where we have big groups of people all arriving in town at the same time, often having pre-loaded before they arrive, and then they

all leave at about the same time we get people bumping into each other and that’s where we get the assaults. “At four o’clock on a Sunday morning, there’s not much around in terms of capable guardianship, there’s some police officers, some security, taxi operators – there’s not that much else out there in terms of capable guardians.” He said often assaults involved “predominately younger people [who were] heavily intoxicated.” He said police “resource-up” for every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, and large events, to help combat the carnage. “It does put a strain on, it’s a busy period for police most weekends, it’s a busy period for ambulance staff, it’s a busy period of ED (emergency department) staff for all those same reasons.” Police statistics also show more than a third of all offences are committed by an offender who has been drinking. Acting Assistant Commissioner Hoyle said Wellington’s inner-city was a hotbed for violent offences on a Friday or Saturday night. – NZ Herald

Councillors frustrated Call for rebuild boss to meet with city hall

„„ By Bridget Rutherford SOME CITY councillors are frustrated they still haven’t had a formal meeting with the new rebuild boss more than two months after she took over the role. But Minister supporting Greater Christchurch RegenNicky eration Nicky WagWagner ner said she planned to but had not found the time. City councillor Yani Johanson said it was “really important” to meet on a regular basis. He Yani Johanson had made a request to do so but was still waiting. City councillors never met with Mrs Wagner’s predecessor Gerry Brownlee, which had been frustrating, he said. “We’re at the start of a new relationship. We need to be openminded and give it the benefit

of the doubt to see if there is an improved way to work together so it’s better for the community.” City councillor Aaron Keown said he was surprised a meeting had not happened already. He wanted something like the 2010 system, where there was a monthly meeting attended by city councillors, community board members, health board members and mayors from across Canterbury. Mrs Wagner said she had planned on attending a city council meeting, but had not found the time. She was open to setting up monthly meetings. “I see my job now as moving the leadership from central Government and passing it on to local Government.” Mrs Wagner said she meets

with Mayor Lianne Dalziel weekly, and spoke to the relevant ministers at weekly caucus meetings about Christchurch issues. She said she met with Prime Minister Bill English last week to keep him updated. “And Gerry Brownlee, I’m constantly talking to him because, of course, he’s got lots of the history going back.” City councillor Jamie Gough said he was keen to meet with Mrs Wagner when required. He said the city council should have met more with Mr Brownlee. “I think the tension between local government and the Crown occurred probably more often than we would have liked because there wasn’t that dialogue there. I don’t know if that was necessarily anyone’s fault.”

Belt and Road Forum for Future Cooperation The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (BRF) which was concluded in May 14-15 outlined the roadmap for the success of the Belt and Road Initiative. Twenty-nine foreign heads of state and government attended the forum. Other delegates included officials, entrepreneurs, financiers and media from over 130 countries and regions, which are home to more than two thirds of the world’s population and their combined gross domestic product accounts for 90 percent of the world’s total. The second BRF will be held in China in 2019.

Stronger Financial Connectivity Meanwhile, besides the actual fund injection, future cooperation would gradually extend from the building of hardware such as roads and ports to softer sectors such as management and services. Funding services and financial support would be one of the service and institutional improvements that would take more shares in the next round of Belt and Road construction. Nine Chinese-funded banks have set up 62 direct branches and representative offices in 26 countries along the Belt and Road as of the end of 2016, offering tailored services to local clients. At the same time, 54 commercial banks from 20 countries and regions along the Belt and Road have established branches, financial companies or representative offices in China, seeking opportunities with the initiative. According to the Guiding Principles on Financing the Development of the Belt and Road, governments along the Belt and Road should coordinate to provide favorable policy environments for financing. The guiding principles also suggest letting the private sector play a larger role in the initiative, and encouraging financial innovation while enhancing cooperation on financial regulation.

Consolidated Consensus The forum yielded a list of outcomes, which included 76 consensuses comprising more than 270 detailed results in five key areas, namely policy, infrastructure, trade, financial and people-to-people connectivity. It sent a positive signal for all parties to work together to build a community of shared future, which would be extremely important for China and the world.

Large Investment Demand A joint communiqué was issued at the forum, vowing to work on a long-term, stable and sustainable financing system, as well as to enhance financial infrastructure connectivity, by exploring new finance models, platforms and services. The projects will require innovative financing mechanisms -- a mix of public and concessional finance and commercial capital.

China aims to work with other countries to build the Belt and Road into an open platform of cooperation and a solution for challenges, including a lack of new growth drivers, development imbalance and terrorism. President Xi Jinping said China hoped to create a big family of harmonious co-existence, and the pursuit of the Belt and Road will not resort to outdated geopolitical manoeuvring. To ease concerns, Xi said China has no intention of interfering in internal affairs of other countries, exporting its social system and model of development, or imposing its will on others.

The Belt and Road will be open to all. All countries, from Asia, Europe, Africa, Oceania or the Americas, can be partners of the initiative. So far, the initiative has won support from more than 100 countries and international organizations, of which over 40 have signed cooperation agreements. One of the eye-catching outcomes of the forum was China’s hefty financial support to advance the initiative, including an additional 100 billion yuan (14.5 billion U.S. dollars) to the Silk Road Fund. China will also encourage its financial institutions to conduct overseas yuan fund businesses with an estimated amount of about 300 billion yuan. China’s decision to scale up financial support for the Belt and Road, after billions of U.S. dollars of investment over the past three years, underscored the country’s resolution to push forward the initiative.

Landmark Significance The Belt and Road initiative has gone beyond vision and become a reality, delivering tangible benefits to countries along the routes. From Mongolia to Malaysia, Thailand to Pakistan and Laos to Uzbekistan, many projects, including high-speed railways, bridges, ports, industrial parks, oil pipelines and power grids, are being built. Since 2013, Chinese businesses have invested more than 60 billion U.S. dollars in countries along the Belt and Road. The investment totalled 14.5 billion dollars in 2016 alone, This advertorial page is supported by The Chinese Consulate

accounting for 8.5 percent of total overseas investment made by Chinese enterprises.

The Chinese President in his speech also mentioned China will expand China-Europe railway cargo services and establish new mechanisms, including a liaison office for the forum’s follow-up activities and a research centre. With coordinated and sustained collaboration among all parties concerned, the forum will mark the start of the Belt and Road 2.0.

Opportunities for New Zealand Attending the forum showed that New Zealand wanted to be part of the discussion. New Zealand and China signed a ground-breaking memorandum of understanding on Belt and Road Initiative in March. The longer-term target is to work with China to develop a plan on how New Zealand can participate and contribute to the initiative.

Coming back from the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, Paul Goldsmith who is New Zealand’s Minister of Science and Innovation, Minister of Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment, said the forum “was a very impressive and significant event.” As the head of the New Zealand delegation, Goldsmith said during an interview that he sees the Belt and Road Initiative as the re-management, re-invention and re-invigoration of the ancient trade routes. He said “The Silk Road is a starting point and an expression of support for the open market, reducing trade barriers, increasing connectivity across the world. He said that as a small trading nation, New Zealand “obviously has a keen interest on all those things” and New Zealand is well aware of the opportunities that China provide especially for bilateral trade. Being Minister of Science and Innovation, Mr. Goldsmith is particularly interested in the themes of the Belt and Road Initiative on innovation, which is the particular field that New Zealand is focused on. New Zealand is also looking into how the two countries can continue to work together on innovation in many fields. New Zealand universities have long time relationships with Chinese leading universities. Mr. Goldsmith said that there’s a good prospect for New Zealand and China to further develop science connections under the Belt and Road Initiative.

Child sex offender concern Meeting held by residents „„ By Andrew King SOMERFIELD residents met last week to discuss the placement of a convicted child sex offender in their community. It comes after schools and residents were told on May 29 about the offender being released from prison and who would soon be living near them. The meeting was organised by Labour MP for Port Hills Ruth Dyson (left) and included Somerfield Residents Association representatives and Department of Corrections staff. Ms Dyson labelled the meeting as “extremely positive.” “They have really tried to engage the community as much as possible. We were told it was the

first time that Corrections have door-knocked residents to let them know what is happening,” she said. She said she initially had doubts that police would be able to respond to any breaches of conditions, but said Corrections reassured her police would make it a “top priority.” Residents association chairwoman Julie Tobbell said it was good to allow the community to voice their concerns. “I will be looking to set up a

meeting with concerned residents and Corrections at a later date once I find out how many people would be interested in it,” she said. No specific details about the offender were discussed at the meeting, Ms Tobbell said. The next time the residents association will meet is July 10, but Ms Tobbell said there could be another meeting set up if there was a large number of interested residents who wanted to attend.

Schools were notified by Corrections staff who assured them that there will be 24/7 monitoring, exclusion zones to prevent contact with children, and the offender will be housed more than 500m from schools. Letters were sent to Somerfield, St Peter’s and Cashmere High schools. Corrections staff were also going door-to-door in Somerfield letting the community know.

Controversial fence set to cost ratepayers A CONTROVERSIAL ratepayerfunded fence at Flock Hill Station has been given the go-ahead. The Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee has reconfirmed its decision to allocate $26,571 of its Immediate Steps Biodiversity Funding to section off a part of Cave Stream and 35ha wetlands at the station. The zone initially approved allocating $44,236 to the project in March but has since reviewed its decision. It comes after an application by Flock Hill’s leaseholder Flock Hill Holdings, owned by Jim Foster and Vince Saunders of Los Angeles-based Coast Range New Zealand, was made. It proposed fencing off Cave Stream as a way of mitigating the associated loss of biodiversity on the terraces. The landowners will contribute $22,000 towards the project. A final decision on the funding was held off at the zone’s May meeting after concerns more research needed to be done on the project

Changing attitudes lower the number

„„ By Bridget Rutherford DRINK DRIVING charges have almost halved in Canterbury over the past decade – a shift police say is down to changed attitudes. The latest drink driving figures show the number of people charged for driving under the influence of alcohol in Canterbury was 1658 last year, compared with 2543 in 2007. Of those, 1604 were convicted last year. There were 2433 convictions in 2007. Nationally, the number has dropped from 27,328 a decade ago, compared with 16,304 in 2016. Canterbury road policing manager Inspector Al Stewart (left) said police were encouraged by the downward trend. “The trauma and grief caused by an alcohol-related serious crash is massive, so less people affected by alcohol on our roads make them safer for all road users and reduces harm in our communities.” He said changing public

more, he said. Inspector Stewart said police had made strategic efforts target-

ing alcohol harm, especially on the roads. “This has been supported by the lower drink driving limits which have encouraged people to think about their drinking behaviour and plan to make it home safely.”   The breath-alcohol limit was lowered from 400mcg/L to 250mcg/L in December, 2014. But the limit that triggered prosecution at court was 400mcg/L. The latest stats did not include the number of people given an infringement notice for driving over the 250mcg/L limit since it changed. But in 2014, the number of people charged in Canterbury was 2235, before dropping to 1852 in 2015 and again in 2016. Bars and pubs have noticed people are more aware of what they were drinking, with many patrons now choosing light beers and wines. Valley Inn Tavern owner Dean Calvert said since the new limit was introduced in 2014, they had noticed patrons were buying a lot more food and snacks to go with their drink. “People are eating before they drive.”

BY THE NUMBERS Number of drink driving charges in Canterbury in the last five years: 2012: 2900 2013: 2472 2014: 2235 2015: 1852 2016: 1658 Number of convictions in Canterbury in the last five years: 2012: 2795 2013: 2392 2014: 2187 2015: 1796 2016: 1604 The sale of lower alcohol beer had also been on the rise, he said. “There’s definitely a lot more people drinking the Monteith’s Mid Strength Ale.” They had a courtesy van for 14 years and it had always been very well used, he said. Sullivans Irish Bar owner Mark Sullivan said they had a wide range of non-alcoholic beverages, as well as low alcohol beer and alcohol-reduced wine. They also sold an Edenvale non-alcoholic wine, he said. “There definitely has been a shift to no-alcohol products.”

Sullivans manager Subhadra Marshall said: “People are more aware of what they’re drinking.” The statistics showed in Christchurch, 1562 appeared in the district court charged with drink driving last year. It was 2080 in 2007. In comparison, last year 78 people appeared in the Ashburton District Court charged with drink driving, and 170 in Timaru. In 2007, people aged 19-yearsold and under had the most convictions for drink driving in Christchurch with 473. But last year, the number of under-19s convicted had dropped to 154, and the 20-24-year-old bracket was the highest with 323 convictions. That was followed by the 25-29 age bracket with 274.

Bishop in protest „„ By Gabrielle Stuart BISHOP Victoria Matthews is set to speak at a State houses sale protest rally this weekend – but she won’t be the guest of honour there. Instead, the top speaker position has been given to the tenants of the state houses, so they can tell their own stories. The rally on Saturday will protest the proposed sale of up Victoria Matthews to 2500 state houses in Christchurch, about 40 per cent of the city’s state housing stock. The sell-off plan was announced in November by Bill English, who said it was opportunity for a private social housing provider to renew and develop the homes. But Christchurch social agencies, including the Salvation Army, Christchurch Methodist Mission and Tenants Protection

ON THE MARKET: The Bryndwyr state house where John Key lived as a child is one of up to 2500 which could be sold under a Government plan. ​

Association, have criticised the plan. Protest organiser Marney Ainsworth said people were concerned the state housing sold would be run for profit, and people living there would suffer. “A woman came up to me after one meeting and said she felt very ashamed of herself, because she hadn’t clicked that these were real, live, human, people. That’s what we’re trying to show,” she said. Victoria Matthews said she planned to speak at the protest to support the people living there. “I’m less concerned about who owns state

housing, and more concerned about the maintenance of it and the response to those who need extra support. The need to care for our neighbour is more important than who owns the housing,” she said. Labour MP Megan Woods and Green MP Eugenie Sage are also set to speak at the meeting. Ms Ainsworth said National MPs Amy Adams and Gerry Brownlee had both been invited, but neither had responded. The protest rally and march will start at 2pm on Saturday, at the Shands Crescent Reserve on Riccarton Rd.

Health funding at risk Historian dies „„ By Gabrielle Stuart THE CANTERBURY District Health Board has less than three weeks left to catch up on its surgery waiting lists – with $24 million in funding on the line if it fails. The doctor strikes and rebuild work on operating theatres meant many surgeries had to be rescheduled, and the CDHB fell behind on its set surgery targets. Andrew That left some Dickerson patents waiting more than six months for treatment or a first assessment – breaking the rules around the Government funding. In March, the health board was told it could face a $24 million funding cut as penalty if it did not catch up by the end of June. That means having fewer than one per cent of patients waiting for more than six months, and completing the year’s target of 20,982 non-emergency surgeries this month. The CDHB already faces financial problems, with a esti-

mated budget shortfall this year of more than $39 million. The CDHB met with the Ministry of Health to discuss the situation last month, and the health board was on track to achieve the targets at that point. Ministry of Health spokeswoman Clare Perry said a decision on whether to charge the penalty would be made in August, after the results for this month were confirmed. CDHB hospital advisory committee chairman Andrew Dickerson some of the shortfall

had been made up by contracting some surgery out to the private sector – but that only went so far. “Contracting out isn’t sustainable, because we’re using the same people. Often the same surgeons work in both private and public, so there is only so much they can do. It’s very much a juggling act,” he said. He said the difficulty meeting targets could carry on over winter, as emergency operations because of winter illnesses could use theatre space and delay less urgent surgery.

„„ By Caitlin Miles OKAINS BAY identity Murray Thacker has died. The 83-year-old, whose great grandparents were early settlers in the Okains Bay area, passed away last week. He was best known for his work with the Okains Bay Maori and Colonial Museum, which he founded. He collected many historic items over the decades for the museum and he was heavily involved in the annual Waitangi Day celebrations. He was awarded a Queen’s Service Medal for his work. Mr Thacker was once described as being ‘pure Okains’. He was born in 1933 and grew up in Okains Bay, He attended the local school and began his collecting interest of historic items while there. He went onto Christchurch Boys’ High School, trained as a blacksmith, and returned to Okains Bay and developed a successful hereford stud. The  Okains Bay Maori and Colonial Museum began as his private collection in his own home, but when the opportunity arose, he purchased the disused Okains

Bay Cheese Factory in 1968 and spent the next nine years setting up the museum. This included the relocation and restoration of many colonial historic buildings, forging links with Maori crafts people and commissioning the construction of the Whakaata and Pataka and the erection of the Whare Taonga. Mr Thacker was awarded a Queen’s Service Medal shortly after gifting the museum collection. In 2009, he was honoured by the Canterbury History Foundation with the A.C Rhodes History Medal. His funeral will be held today.

The announcement was made at the event’s Christchurch launch on Monday. The event will be the first time 10 sports are combined into one Golden Oldies tournament. Event director Peter McDermott said they were fortunate to have an amazing group of sports advocates join its ambassador team.

forecast 10,000 participants from overseas and our new ambassadors, along with some of the very high profile Kiwis, will provide

strong voices and faces to help us do so.” Richards and Procter will both participate in the Golden Oldies World Festival of Golf on top of providing sideline support for the cricket. “Other than enjoying a week of cricket festivities I am excited at the prospect of playing golf on what I understand are four magnificent Christchurch golf courses and being back in New Zealand whose people are among the most friendly and welcoming it has been my pleasure to meet in all my travels,” Richards said.

grand fashion at Chch Casino Registrations for most sports are tracking well with rugby already at 60 per cent of capacity and two sports – netball and cricket – at the 50 per cent mark. A push to recruit for the new sports – lawn bowls, basketball, golf and squash – will begin soon. The event’s volunteer recruitment programme will begin next month, with about 1000 expected to be needed. “Volunteers sit at the very heart of delivering a great experience for participants and becoming a volunteer provides a way in which the wider Canterbury community can be involved,” Mr McDermott said. Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration Nicky Wagner said the event, which is expected to inject about $33 million of direct economic benefit, was a golden opportunity to showcase Christchurch. Beneficiaries of the Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018 are Cure Kids and the Leverage and Legacy Committee. Support for the event is provided by New Zealand Major Events, the city council, the Rata Foundation, Tourism New Zealand and Christchurch and Canterbury Tourism.

Wig out in support of the Child Cancer Foundation

STAR MEDIA staff will don their wigs on Wednesday to raise money for a very worthy cause – and we are urging you to as well. Wig Wednesday will take place on June 21 to raise money for the Child Cancer Foundation, which provides personalised support for children diagnosed with cancer and their families. Participants just need to wear a wig, and bring a donation. Star Media publishes The Star, six community newspapers, magazines, including Style, Kiwi Gardener and Rugby News, and has a website www.star.kiwi Star Media director Charlotte Smulders, who organises the annual Child Cancer Foundation Christmas Party, said Wig Wednesday would raise much needed funds. “Child Cancer Foundation is an essential and amazing support service for families going through their cancer journey,” she said. “I think this is a unique and fun way to support them, and

it brings the Star Media team together for a great cause.” In last year’s Wig Wednesday, businesses, schools, community groups and individuals donned their wigs to raise more than $90,000. “We’re hoping to build on those numbers again this year. It’s so much fun and easy for people to participate; simply don a wig and make a donation,” Child Cancer Foundation national commercial manager Jo Clark said. Every week more than three children in New Zealand are diagnosed with cancer. The Child Cancer Foundation

receives no direct funding from the Government, so relies on the generosity of the public, and events such as this. Star Media wants you to join in. Take photos of yourself, your school or business taking part in Wig Wednesday and send them to bridget.rutherford@ starmedia.kiwi. Those who send in the best photos will receive a free double pass to Hoyts. We have 10 double passes to give away. Winners will need to be able to pick up the tickets at 359 Lincoln Rd.

Complaints leave red zone in doubt for future concerts „„ By Bridget Rutherford LARGE EVENTS are unlikely to be held in a red zone park again after a trial concert left damage to the grounds and noise complaints. It comes after calls to hold more events in the red zone to take pressure off Hagley Park. Australian musician Tash Sultana played in The Bedford Marquee at Burwood’s Donnell Sports Park on May 25. It was one of three sold-out shows performed in New Zealand, organised by her management and CRS Music. The park had never been used for that type of event before, and the city council decided future use of the site was to be determined on the outcome of it. A recently-released city council report said its events partnerships and development team would not “actively recommend” the park for future events with heavy infrastructure such as marquees and truck movements. But the report said the team would assess any application on a “case-by-case basis.” It came after the city council received four noise complaints from the Tash Sultana concert,

two of which were after the event had finished. The report said the ground was not ideal for future events of this scale, as trucks driving on it had caused damage due to how wet it was. The cost of that damage was being covered by the concert organisers. CRS Music did not respond to The Star. But the report said for the most part, the feedback from residents had been positive. In February, Mayor Lianne Dalziel said more events should be held in the red zone to take pressure off Hagley Park. Hands off Hagley had been concerned with the damage being caused to Hagley due to the number of events being held there. The city council report said the public had expressed interest to utilise parts of the red zone for events.

Home & Leisure Show

21

Playhouses take shape for charity FUTURISTIC, CLASSIC or quirky – three unique and very different playhouses are taking shape, all in aid of charity. The playhouses are being designed and built by three teams of Canterbury architects and builders, and are set to be auctioned at the Star Home & Leisure Show in less than three weeks. The money raised will go to charities – Birthright Canterbury, which supports single parent families in need, and Tenants Protection Association Christchurch, which works to protect and support tenants. Tenants Protection Association manager Di Harwood said the Playhouse Challenge was a perfect fit for both charities. “Housing is an important issue for clients of both organisations and demand for advice and support has remained high ever since the first Canterbury earthquakes,” she said. Birthright Canterbury manager Rhodora Sagles said the playhouses were “real statement pieces” and she could see them suiting businesses, pre-schools or private backyards. The teams creating the play-

houses are Fusion Homes with Scratch Architecture; Irving Builders with PXA Architects; and Pound Road Trading. Star Media is the major sponsor of the Playhouse Challenge, which is also being supported by Priority Communications, Wyma Engineering, Resene, Robertson Creative, and Dave Richards Photography. Star Media general manager Steve McCaughan said it was a worthy cause. “We are big supporters of Birthright Canterbury and Tenants Protection Association, who have been looking after Canterbury people for many many years.” The playhouses would also be something special, he said. “They will be judged on their architectural design and construction, as well as how much fun they are for kids,” he said. The Playhouse Challenge was inspired by Australia’s popular Cubby House Challenge,

QUIRKY: Fusion Homes’ playhouse final design (top left) combines solid construction and foam insulation for warmth and vibrant colours as seen during its construction. ​

which this year raised well over $100,000 for the charity ‘Kids Under Cover’.

The judges will include Birthright Canterbury chair Jane Lancaster, Tenants Protection

Association board member Robin Tinga, architect John McGrail from Dalman Architects and early childhood educator Blanche Head. To stay up-to-date on the Canterbury playhouses, you can like the ‘2017 Playhouse Challenge’ page on Facebook or follow ‘Playhouse Challenge’ on Instagram. •The 2017 Star Home & Leisure Show will be held at Horncastle Arena from Friday, June 30, to Sunday, July 2. The playhouses will be auctioned at the show on Saturday.

Lions give city a boost Nicky Wagner

WHAT A game. The Crusaders may not have won at the weekend but Christchurch certainly did – the city came alive with thousands of eager rugby fans. The visit by the British and Irish Lions, their support staff and loyal fans was a boost of energy and income, but also an opportunity to take stock of our tourism sector. The latest Greater Christchurch Dashboard – Tourism, released on Sunday, looks at international visitor arrivals to Christchurch Airport, guest nights and accommodation availability. Overall, while tourism is not back at pre-quake levels, visitor numbers and accommodation capacity are increasing. It’s particularly pleasing to see annual international visitor numbers to Christchurch Airport (as of April this year) reach more than 500,000 for the first time since the quakes. Total tourism expenditure in the greater Christchurch area is estimated at $2.3 billion in the

12 months to April 2017. Capacity at motels and holiday parks is almost back to 2010 levels, but there’s still some work to do in the hotel sector, with bed numbers in March 2017 at 56 per cent of 2010 numbers. We know the central city was struck hard in the quakes and a lot of building stock, including hotels, were lost. A number of hotels have re-opened, two more are in the process of substantial refurbishment or repairs, and new ones are in the pipeline, such as the Holiday Inn Express on Gloucester St, scheduled to open next year. I was lucky enough to attend the game on Saturday, but I know thousands more watched from local bars and restaurants,

as well as the temporary fan zone on Poplar St in the Innovation Precinct. Locals also embraced travelling Lions by offering beds and campervan parking spots through the unofficial “Adopt a Lions Fan” Facebook page. This all shows that in spite of greater Christchurch’s ongoing tourism challenges, the area is very much on the map and heading in the right direction. As a community, we can do our part by helping domestic and international visitors see Christchurch the way we do – not as a broken place, but a city of opportunity. •Nicky Wagner is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Readers respond to a transport expert’s calls for the city council to reduce speed limits in a bid to improve safety Allan and Maureen Goulstone, Aidanfield – We are residents in the Anthony Wilding Retirement Village in Aidanfield. We like your article on lowering speed limits in the June 8 edition of The Star. We feel that speed limits should be reduced around retirement villages as well as the list you gave. For the two and a half years we have lived here, I’ve battled to have the 80km/h speed limit on a 0.9km section of Halswell Rd, between Dunbars and Hendersons Rds, reduced to 60km/h, in line with the speed limit from Dunbars Rd through the Halswell village. I feel I’ve been playing ping-pong with the authorities on this. It’s a national transport authority decision, apparently. So no-one will do anything. The limit, as it stands, seems to me to be quite ridiculous. One other aspect of this is that there is a bus stop serving the Orange Line on the east side of Halswell Rd ‘opposite’ Aidanfield Dr. Our residents have to run to get across the road, taking their lives in their hands to do so. Blessings on your work. May it succeed beyond expectation.

Carmina Blewett, Redwood – Living my entire 17 years in Redwood’s winding and narrow Barnes Rd, I have grown up to witness, on a daily basis, the excessive speeds hoons and reckless drivers alike strive to outside my gate. Is 60km/h really an appropriate speed limit with oncoming vehicles, and pets and children on the road side? Matthew Tansey – The (transport expert) is a bike riding dreamer. Don’t wreck our new city any further with your stupid lower speed limits and your segregated bike lanes that make it dangerous for every car driver. Christine Schuler – Who gets up to 50km/h outside malls or schools (far too many people waiting to pick up kids)? It’s nothing to do with speed, it’s poorly designed roads and congestion.

Immigration reform

SAFETY FIRST: Traffic expert Glen Koorey says speed limits near schools, shopping centres and on windy narrow roads should be lowered. PHOTO: CANTERBURY UNIVERSITY

NEW Zealand is a country built on immigration. When new migrants arrive in our cities and our country, we are all the better for it. My own family arrived in a couple of waves of migration in the late 19th and early 20th centuries from England and Ireland. We all have our family migration histories, whether it be a waka, sailing ship, boat or plane. We’ve always welcomed migrants in this country and will continue to do so. A Government’s job is to ensure that the number of people arriving matches our economic needs and ability to cope with the population growth. In recent years, the National Government has failed to do this. Since 2013, immigration has been more than four times what was planned for – that means 130,000 more people than expected have settled here. National hasn’t made the necessary investments in public services and infrastructure to support new arrivals. This has contributed to the housing crisis, put pressure on our health system and schools, and added to the congestion on roads. This week, Labour announced

Andrea Lamont – The so called traffic experts should not have diverted all the traffic to main roads where schools are and cut off the many routes to get there. This includes diverting traffic to malls, adding lights, islands, no parking lanes and bus stops. It is not the speed creating the crashes, it is the confusion. The road rules say one thing, the signs say another. Katherine Zeg – Why? Nobody does 30, not even the police. Why don’t you not look at the speed, but the fact that people are too busy looking down at their phones or not crossing at the lights? Why is it always just the speed of cars that’s the problem? Tamsin Carter – Better policing is needed to enforce the current 40km/h limit outside schools. I was once overtaken by a courier van when sticking to 40km/h outside a school in the morning when the extra signs were lit. Some people will just not obey the rules and need to be stopped by police when they speed past a school.

moderate and sensible reforms to immigration that will reduce the pressure on cities, while still making sure our businesses and regions can access the skilled workers our country needs. We have reviewed the system and found ways to end abuse of the system, particularly the backdoor immigration through low-value education. Businesses facing genuine skills shortages will be able to get the skilled migrants they need. Labour’s KiwiBuild and Exceptional Skills Visas will help bring in skilled workers for construction and areas like IT and health. This is not about slashing immigration. In fact immigration will continue above levels overseen by either Helen Clark or John Key. It’s about taking a breather and ensuring that all New Zealanders, whether their families have been here for five generations or five days, have access to great housing, schools and healthcare. •Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman

Philip Norman

Composer scores grant to keep Dr Philip Norman has been granted a $100,000 Michael King Fellowship to pursue a lifetime project about New Zealand composers. He spoke with Gabrielle Stuart about burning bras, brutal reviews and making money out of music How how did you get the news of this grant? I got the call about a fortnight ago. It was a lovely surprise. Who wouldn’t like to be offered $100,000 to pursue one of their projects? This is something I’ve been working on for a while, but the fellowship means I can concentrate on it, turn down other work, and get it done. How long have you been working on this? I would dread to think. I started this project in 1978 when I began studying for my PHD at the University of Canterbury, before I realised it was too big a project to do in that time. So I put in a year on it then, and add to that another 10,000 hours every few years since. You’ve already written a bibliography with stories of about 120 New Zealand composers. I have to confess, I didn’t know we had so many composers here. You can actually add one or

two to that – there are about 1200 people out there composing. If I listed all of them that would be the whole word count of the book right there, but it would look like a phonebook. So this will focus just on people who have had a real impact with their work. It’s funny really, today we’ve got many, many people composing because computer technology makes so much possible. But go back 100 years, and there were thousands of people composing then. It was something you had a go at, because of course there was no radio or music recordings, so for many people that was their source of entertainment. Many people were something else by day and composer by night. Is being based here at the bottom of the world, an advantage or disadvantage to composers? I found it to be a huge disadvantage, principally

because the world’s cultural traffic flows southward. It comes from London and New York and trickles down until it finally one day arrives in Invercargill. It makes it hard for New Zealand composers to swim against that tide, because you don’t have that huge promotional

machinery behind you that they do in those cities. Having said that, I wouldn’t wish to live in London or New York. The advantages of being here outweigh the difficulties. Your pieces have been performed in some amazing theatres and venues across the world – what are some that have stood out?

writing about his love for music I’ve actually hardly ever been overseas. The life of a composer is not well remunerated, so it’s not something I could afford to do. That’s a real shame. I think it’s very sad, although I’m biased of course. But the reality is the royalty I get for a piece performed at a concert wouldn’t be sufficient to buy a programme, let alone fly across the world. But actually, what excites me the most is having my pieces performed in front of my own audiences, my own people here. It’s nice to say something you wrote has been performed in Timbuktu, but it’s more special to have people you love watching it. It gives me great pride to see someone take the time to learn and put their heart and soul into performing my work, it doesn’t matter if it’s one person or 100. What was the first instrument you learned? I learned the cello when I was eight or nine, so it was taller than I was. My mother was a music teacher, and a great source of inspiration and help. But what really lit my fire was Gilbert and Sullivan musicals at school. My friends and I used to write comic

ICONIC: The Adamstown Theatre in Australia performing the Footrot Flats musical, one of the most successful shows Philip Norman has written music for.

operettas during our school holidays – I’m not sure if that’s a normal pastime? But one of the first we performed at school was all about the women’s liberation meetings at Parliament. I still remember the opening line: Burn the bra, burn the bra! That was very risqué then, so we loved it. After school, did your family ever tell you to get a real job? My father often used that line. He was a headmaster, so that made for an interesting

childhood. But my father also always had a creative streak, so he had admiration for the fact I was using my creativity. I was determined, even at 18, to make a career out of music. So at university I wrote, again with friends, a series of musicals. One had a wonderful title, Stiff Luck to the Undertaker, and it went quite well. It was difficult at times. I was privileged to be part of the team writing the Footrot Flats musical and, after the hours

of work spent on it, I said if I couldn’t get a decent return, I would give it up. But fortunately it did well. Have you ever had to turn to other work, to pay the bills? Actually no, I haven’t had to do the traditional things like flip burgers at McDonald’s, so I count myself enormously privileged. I haven’t really ever undertaken something just because I have needed the money, either – I have always been interested in it. But perhaps that’s also because I have wide interests. What are some reviews of your work that have stood out to you over the years? You mean times I’ve been roasted? There have been many. One I really rather relish was from one of the London critics, who are known for their savagery. One said I should be noted for writing one of the world’s first tune-free musicals. I didn’t appreciate it at the time, but I do rather appreciate that now. You’ve also earned many honours and accolades for your work. Which has meant the most to you? Receiving the Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit.

That was something really quite special. Outside your work, what are some of your pet passions? Well, pets actually. My current delight is a pet rabbit by the name of Harvey. Harvey Norman. There’s something about this rabbit, he’s been a real joy. My children are also a real source of joy. It’s incredibly interesting seeing them develop into skilled and fascinating young adults. What are your musical guilty pleasures? I’m of the belief there are no musical guilty pleasures. Whatever you enjoy is worth listening to. I admit I get very moved by the sound of bagpipes, and jazz has been something I’ve loved for years. So I do have eclectic tastes. So you would listen to a rap song every now and then? I’m full of admiration for some rap, actually. This is the street poetry of now, and the voice of youth. I predict before too long there will be university studies of rap, there probably already are. With all styles of music, there are bad examples and well done examples. With rap some of the worst is terrible, but in the best there is a lot to admire.

Community digs in to help improve local environment Christchurch West Melton Zone Committee By Arapata Rueben, Zone Committee Chair A big thank you to those of you in Christchurch who showed up last month to help clean up some of our wonderful Christchurch waterways. Over 750 people participated in the “Mother of all Clean Ups 2017” and nearly 9 tonnes of rubbish was collected from the 156 kilometres of river bank bordering the Avon and Heathcote Rivers, Kerrs Reach and the Avon-Heathcote Estuary. The largest culprit in the rubbish stakes was plastic, with hundreds of carrier bags, food wrappers, straws and bottles being pulled from the rivers. The good news was that less rubbish was collected this year than in 2016. I like to think that this is because the clean ups are making a difference and that they are also making people stop and think about how they dispose of their rubbish and the impact that dropping litter on the ground has on the environment.

At the meeting last month of the Christchurch West Melton Zone Committee the Avon Otakaro Network gave an update on plans for the 12 kilometre City to Sea river trail which will open in stages from Spring this year. The trail is expected to be completed in early 2018 and you will be able walk, run or cycle from Barbadoes Street to Pages Road in New Brighton. For now though, residents are able to use sections of the trail as they are completed, so make the most of this new facility and get out and enjoy our river.

Work is continuing to undertake plantings on the Port Hills to help with sediment control and an aerial seeding programme has been completed in some areas. The Port Hills Volunteer planting days are continuing throughout June so if you are keen to be involved, the meeting place is Princess Margaret Hospital on Saturday June 17, Thursday June 22 and Saturday June 24 from 12.15 – 4.00pm. Volunteer spaces are limited so you do need to register. Many thanks to Environment Canterbury for providing transport for volunteers from the hospital up to the hill. For any queries about the volunteer days, please contact Ranger Di Carter, di.carter@ccc.govt.nz.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY... MANDARINS IN CARAMEL SAUCE Ingredients 8 Mandarins 1 cup Caster sugar 1 cup Water 1 handful Mint leaves, to ganish 1 pot Creme fraiche, to serve Directions Peel mandarins and set aside. Into a small pot place sugar and water. Slowly bring to a simmer and continue to cook for 10-15 minutes until mixture starts to turn a caramel colour. At this stage keep a close eye on it. It will brown very quickly. When it is a caramel colour remove from heat and add ¼-½ cup water. It may spit a bit at you, so do this carefully. Stir until syrup is clear. Cool. Place mandarins in glasses and pour over caramel sauce. Decorate with mint leaves and serve creme fraiche on the side. SILVERBEET WITH PUMPKIN, PINENUTS AND LENTILS

Gardening

Window dressing No matter whether your garden is big or small, there’s plenty more room to grow on the windowsill says Rachel Vogan TIMES CHANGE and so do gardens. This winter sees me relocating to a new abode; a barn conversion. I have had a seismic shift of sorts, going from a large established garden to nothing. I am back to the start-from-scratch scenario, and it’s both fun and challenging. Therefore, my crops this winter have to be portable, productive, tasty and easy to grow. As there is little room for much outside just yet, all my edibles are growing on the windowsills around the new dwelling. It’s almost like living in an apartment. 1. ROCKET Where, oh where, would I be without rocket? I grow both the perennial and annual types and through winter the serrated peppery leaves of the come-again variety are one of my go-to crops. Either sow seeds now or treat yourself to some seedlings. The trick to keep the leaves coming is to pick and harvest on a regular basis. Not a lot of root room is required either, so a plant will readily grow in a takeaway coffee cup, if the container starts to get a bit ratty, slip a new one underneath the original one. Too easy. 2. BASIL Yes, crazy I know, but it will keep growing as a cutting in a glass of water over winter if your kitchen doesn’t drop below 10 deg C very often. And, so far, mine is chugging away with plenty of vigour, mostly due to the log burner, which is constantly burning to keep the temperatures from plummeting.

fact, it’s been one of the best crops. And what’s even better is that I am using it far more often as it is so handy, and is quite sweet when the leaves are about thumb size. 5. LETTUCE The frilly lettuces are thriving. Whilst they can get a bit leggy if I give them too much water, or leave them too long between harvest, they quickly re-grow new leaves once I pluck them or give them a haircut with the nail scissors. I rotate the pots every few days so as the plants retain an even shape.

COMPACT: Little lettuce (left) and gotu kola are easy to grow in tight spaces. Rocket (below) needs to be picked on a regular basis.

7. SUPER SPROUTS Goodness in a jar. Are sprouted seeds your thing? Well, they never used to be mine and now I use them most days. All you need is a jar, a spot with good light, some water and seeds, and you are in business. Too easy. Consider having three jars on the go at any one time, and soak new seeds twice a week – this way you will never run out. 8. MICROGREENS These pint-sized seedlings are just the ticket in winter. They are bigger than sprouted seeds, but smaller than salad leaves. Last year I grew them for the first time and this year they are making an appearance once again. I sow them into those shallow takeaway containers with a few holes poked into the bottom.

Theatre/Arts Hamlet like you’ve never seen it before

Hamlet: The Video Game (the stage show) by Simon Peacock, directed by Gregory Cooper Reviewed by Barry Southam ALAS, POOR Yorick, I did not know you well in this version of verbal mayhem. A male-dominated piece with much clowning by the leads as they took the mickey out of Shakespeare using a video format. Instead of something rotten in the state of Denmark there was something comedic as the trio spoofed the original. Not really a farce, in spite of the rapid entrances and exits, more of a parody. Being familiar with the traditional version of the classic helps with the humour, but even without such knowledge there were plenty of laughs there for all. It all worked, even the simplest scene of one character getting another character’s name mispronounced. Dan Bain, Kathleen Burns and Jared Corbin can feel well pleased with their performances as the audience’s laughter kept on coming. The show runs until June 24. Well worth checking out.

Choir in harmony with art gallery „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding WHEN MUSICAL director Ravil Atlas first heard the acoustics in the Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu, he was determined to bring more choral performances to the space. When Atlas heard his Christchurch Pops Choir singing at a casual afternoon performance, he decided he needed to bring his advanced choir in to perform. Now his choir, Ravil Atlas known as the AtlasVoices Ensemble, will transform the gallery into a majestic state performing Echo: The Glory of Cathedral Acoustic, a repertoire of music, which Atlas describes as being built entirely around the art gallery’s acoustics. He said the acoustics give him fond memories of being in a cathedral – something choirs in the city miss. Audiences can expected to be transported back to the Renaissance period with the concert featuring music from composers Giovanni Gabrieli, Tomás

MUSICAL: Members of the AtlasVoices Ensemble performing at The Piano: Centre for Music and the Arts.

Luis de Victoria and Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina. Atlas said in the time that the choir has been running, this concert has been their biggest challenge yet. They will use their voices to create layers of melody known as polyphony music. But the choir will also present

an array of songs from modern composers, including Eric Whitacre’s anchor piece When David Heard. Atlas said the piece has a chord which requires the choir to sing every note on the keyboard at the same time. “It is like putting your arm on the whole organ . . . it is a tidal

wave of grief,” Atlas said. The choir was founded in 2013 as an offshoot of the Christchurch School of Music to give singers in the community something more to do. The choir is made up of performers from Showbiz Christchurch, Christchurch Pops Choir, New Zealand Opera and former Burnside High School students Atlas has taught. Atlas has an extensive performing career, playing the Jean Valjean in the San Francisco broadway company version of Les Miserables and the phantom in Phantom of the Opera. He recently featured as a mentor on TVNZ’s The Naked Choir and was excited Christchurchbased modern a cappella academy Voices Co is now on the map after winning the show. Next up Atlas will be preparing a repertoire of music for the opening of the Christchurch Arts Festival in August. •Echo: The Glory of Cathedral Acoustic will be performed at the art gallery this Saturday.

The actor behind the mask „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding USING FACIAL expressions to express a story is normally an actor’s lifeline for executing a great stage performance. But not for Andrew Ford, 34, who has delved into mastering the art of deception and disguise in a show featuring predominantly masked characters. Auckland-based Ford, who grew up in Sumner, will set foot on the Isaac Theatre Royal stage as a Andrew bombastic villain Ford in a comedy about love, death and preserves. He said the show has been a challenge because he has had to emphases his body movements and voice, rather than rely on the simplicity of facial expressions. “It is great because it gives you permission to give really big, larger than life performances, which I enjoy doing,” the former Hagley Theatre Company student said. As part of Indian Ink Theatre Company’s 20th anniversary national tour, Ford has been cast as

COMEDY: Andrew Ford as George Reaper and Vanessa Kumar playing Anmachy in The Pickle King.

George Reaper in the company’s award-winning play, The Pickle King. He describes his character as over-the-top, flamboyant and in love with the sound of his own voice. Ford has had a colourful career since he graduated from Auckland’s Unitec in 2008. Five times Ford has performed in Christchurch’s Anthony Harper Summer Theatre show and was recently in this year’s performance of Robin Hood. Shortland St fans may have

seen Ford make a guest appearance on the soap as an “insensitive doctor”. He said things happen very quickly behind the scenes and actors need to be at the top of their game. Although a comedy, The Pickle King tells the story of a blind receptionist working at a crumbling hotel in Wellington who believes she is cursed as everyone she loves dies. In spite of the curse, she falls in love with a another hotel employee and at the same time

a mysterious new guest (Ford) checks into the hotel who she believes to be the Grim Reaper. “For me, the main message about the show, and it may be corny, is about having the courage to love someone . . . she feels cursed but still falls in love,” Ford said. As part of Indian Ink’s anniversary celebrations, the original performance of The Pickle King about 15 years ago has been changed from a heterosexual to a same sex love story. Ford said very little of the script needed to be adapted and it was nice to see audiences were accepting of the gender change in the show. The show also touches on immigration and the difficulty many face when they move to a new country and find their qualifications mean nothing. •The Pickle King will run at the Isaac Theatre Royal from today until Saturday. To book tickets go to http:// isaactheatreroyal.co.nz •Free mask workshops will also be run by Indian Ink Theatre Company. For more information, go to https:// indianink.co.nz

Pupils land von Trapp family roles NOT ONE, but three Cathedral Grammar School pupils have been chosen to star as the lovable von Trapp children in a nationwide tour of The Sound of Music. Daniel Bridgman, Eloise Parkes and Madeleine Glossop were picked out of 200 hopefuls from around the country to perform in Ben McDonald Ltd’s professional production. The pupils will play the younger three of the seven von Trapp children, with Daniel as Kurt, Eloise as Marta and Madeleine as Gretl. Auditions were held at the Isaac Theatre Royal recently. Cathedral Grammar School executive assistant Linda Marsh said it was fantastic news and the pupils were delighted to have secured the professional roles. Following a month of rehearsals, the tour will begin in the North Island at the end of September. The show will be performed in 23 centres from Kerikeri to Invercargill.  It will be on at the Isaac Theatre Royal on October 21 and 22.

DMZ – where tourism and terror collide „„ By Mike Yardley IT’S THE racket blasting from the loudspeakers that is still ringing in my ears. From the south, soaring operatic ballads and K-Pop are belted out, while from the north, a mix of angry sermons and bombastic propaganda songs salute the Dear Leader. Galloping across the countryside for 250km, with a 2km-wide buffer zone either side of the border, the razor wire stretches into infinity. I joined a DMZ day-trip from Seoul, which is a mere 50km drive away from the border. As we drove towards the great divide, either side of the highway was laced with elaborate reams of razor wire, while manned military look-outs studded the roadside, in full battle readiness. Within the buffer zone, tank traps and land mines stalk the countryside. My guide, Moon, remarked there’s an estimated two million land mines still in the DMZ from the Korean War – after a million have already been cleared. Panmunjeom is where the armistice agreement was signed in 1953. You’ll recognise those United Nations-blue buildings, the site of the world’s most famous face-off, where South and North Korean soldiers stare interminably at each other through sunglasses. In spite of the macho sense of theatre, the air hangs heavy with unblinking hostility. All DMZ tours begin at Imjingak, which

HISTORY: The infiltration tunnels aren’t for the faint-hearted. You can walk underground into the north. Right – Dorasan Station was built to connect Seoul with Pyeongyang. It is largely unused.

features a variety of monuments in memory of the Korean War. An 83m bridge, used in the exchange of 13,000 POWs, is lauded as the Freedom Bridge. Nearby, the blasted carcass of an original steam locomotive, which desperately made it back across the Imjin River just as war broke out, riddled with the scars of 1020 bullet holes. Imjingak is also the entry point into the Third Infiltration Tunnel, the biggest of four tunnels identified by the South Koreans since 1974, although there’s apparently another 20 that haven’t been spotted yet. Dug by the North Koreans with the intent of being able to spring a surprise invasion on the south, these tunnels aren’t for the faint-hearted. Issued with a hard hat, the third infiltration tunnel leads you 73m underground, along a 2m wide by 2m high passage. I felt like the

hunchback of Notre Dame, but it’s a searing and slightly spooky encounter to traverse the border, subterranean-style. This tunnel, which is large enough to enable 30,000 soldiers to tromp through in an hour, was discovered in 1978 after a defector tipped off the south. Another striking stop was Dorasan Station, a $40 billion beacon of hope, built 15 years ago with a view of re-connecting Seoul and Pyeongyang by rail. Just 700m from the southern boundary line of the DMZ, it’s utterly bizarre to admire this sparkling yet haplessly underused train station. The shiny international customs hall has never screened a passenger. A few daily services run to Seoul, but services to the North have been on ice since the North Koreans slammed the border crossing shut in 2008.

Should Korea be re-united, Moon says the dream is Dorasan Station would not only connect Seoul with Pyeongyang, but would connect with the vast Eurasian services like the TransSiberian. The undeniable highlight was soaking up the raw cross-border drama of Dora Observatory. This lookout serves up the most intimate view of the north, from South Korea, as if you can reach out and touch it, while being assaulted by those blaring loudspeakers. With the naked eye, I gazed down at the streams of barbed wire along the border, across into North Korean villages. With the mounted binoculars, I could see locals wandering around and a massive statue of Kim Il-sung, while the Propaganda Village touts one of the tallest flags in the world.

INTRIGUE: The blasted carcass of a steam locomotive, riddled with more than 1000 bullet holes. Centre – The Freedom Bridge and border fortifications. Right – The joint security area where soldiers face-off.

In a classic case of boys will be boys, the south and north have played ping-pong for years over their respective border flagpoles. The south started the tussle by erecting a 50m-high flag. Back and forth they went, outdoing one another, until the north triumphed in this battle of attrition, mounting a 160m-high flagpole. The flag alone weighs a whopping 300kg. The south threw in the towel at 110m. The Propaganda Village is so named because it’s widely believed that the brightly coloured buildings are just shells and are uninhabited. Even Hollywood would be left blushing at the sheer scale of this elaborate set. For me, that summed up the weirdness of the DMZ. A strange, surreal, unsettling place, where terror and tourism collide, at one of the world’s flash points. FAST FACTS •In spite of the current crisis, day trips from Seoul to the DMZ remain fiendishly popular. Every day, 5000 visitors are allowed access to the buffer zone, while 500 people can also enter the joint security area at Panmunjeom. Book well in advance. www.vviptravel. com

NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK - JUNE 19-25

Time and talent More than 300 volunteers give tens of thousands of hours of their time, skills and compassion to Nurse Maude each and every year, working across the whole organisation. Their philosophy is to enhance the quality of patient care and services and they are an integral part of Nurse Maude, working in the Nurse Maude Hospice, hospital, administration, across the hospice shops and in the gardens of Nurse Maude. For Nurse Maude it means being able to offer a lot more than nursing care, particularly in the hospice and hospital. Over the past year Nurse Maude has also had volunteers in the community, providing those caring for family members much needed respite care in their own homes. Caring for a family member with complex needs, including those with dementia, in your own home is a full-on proposition. Nurse Maude recognises that family can find it almost impossible to get someone to come into their home they can rely on and who is trained and supported to provide the respite care that allows them to take a short break. Sue Bramwell, Nurse Maude’s GM Marketing, says the contribution of Nurse Maude’s volunteers is significant. “To volunteer time and talent to make a difference in the lives of others is no small thing,” says Bramwell. “We, and those we care for, are incredibly fortunate that our volunteers are willing to give up what is really a very precious commodity, their time, to support our work.”

National Volunteer Week 18-24 June 2017

Volunteering a chance to share This year’s theme for National Volunteer Week is: “Live, laugh, share – Volunteer”, or, “Kia ringa hora: Me mahi tuao” – a positive message celebrating what volunteers bring to their communities. Volunteering Canterbury is proud of the way that the region’s people get out in the community and volunteer “in the bad times – and the notso-bad!”, Volunteering Canterbury’s outreach and marketing manager Glenda Martin says. “We see it every day in every sector across the community. Volunteering is something that we just do well.” As Glenda points out, in every city there will be people who get out and do something for another person. It could be as simple as helping a neighbour who may be unwell or looking after a pet while a friend is on holiday. “That’s the informality of volunteering,” she says. “On top of that there is the more formal volunteering, for a common good, and that is as much in demand as ever in and around our region. Volunteers pack and distribute 3000 bags of fruit and vegetables throughout Christchurch each week, for example. “Whether we acknowledge it or not, there are deprived areas in our city – 65 per cent of those fruit and vegetable packs are going in to those areas. Alongside that sit community lunches – serving up wholesome meals prepared by volunteers and often with gifted produce.” Red Cross humanitarian services manager Carol Ball says a lot of that organisation’s programmes couldn’t run without volunteers. “They are almost the lifeblood of the organisation,” she says. Programmes in which Red Cross volunteers provide services include Meals on Wheels, for which they give more than two hours a week,

We sincerely thank our wonderful volunteers for their valuable contribution to Orana Wildlife Park. We are currently seeking enthusiastic people to join our volunteer team, for a variety of roles including guiding visitors and driving our Safari Shuttle (particularly on weekends). If you would like to join our team, please contact us to obtain an application pack.

Phone 359 7109 extn 819

volunteers@oranawildlifepark.co.nz www.oranawildlifepark.co.nz

and community transport, for which volunteers work almost a full day, either once a week or once a fortnight. Carol says there are close to 1000 Red Cross volunteers in Christchurch, who continue volunteering for many years. “This can be up to 20, 40 even up to 60 years. We recently gave two 30-year presentations – that’s not uncommon.” Volunteering with one of Volunteering Canterbury’s member organisations is just the ‘tip of the iceberg’ of volunteering happening in the region, Glenda says. Even so, it equates to the equivalent of 149 full-time volunteers in the community on any given day of the year. And, using the minimum wage as a base rate, this

is a monetarised contribution to the region of approximately $4.7 million. “It’s what it looks like at the other end – the actual impact of the volunteering, that makes our work so humbling. Last year, 36,000 people in our region were impacted by volunteers of our member organisations. “We all have skills that can help others. Volunteering is good for you, your community and for the social development of our city. It helps build the social fabric that keeps us connected and engaged.” For more information on volunteering opportunities in Canterbury, contact Volunteering Canterbury www.volcan.org.nz or phone 366-2442.

Huge thanks

to our volunteers!

It’s Volunteer Awareness Week and New Zealand Red Cross wants to thank all our amazing volunteers. The programmes we deliver to vulnerable people in New Zealand communities are diverse and far-reaching – and we simply couldn’t do it without you! Want to join us?

Armstrong takes out first win „„ By Gordon Findlater MARCUS Armstrong’s drive towards his formula one dream picked up pace with his first win in the ADAC Formula 4 Championship at the weekend. The 16-year-old adapted well to his first outing at the Red Bull Ring in Austria, dominating in qualifying with the fastest lap time of 1min 29.954sec. He then drove from pole to win Marcus the opening Armstrong race of the weekend – his first victory of the championship. “It’s a great feeling to be celebrating this victory with my team. I’m obviously dreaming of the title, but at the moment, only winning counts for me. Our car was so fast, I couldn’t even see what was going on behind me,” said Armstrong. He backed up the win with two solid performances in the final two races on Sunday, finishing third in both. The results mean that he now moves

up to third in the championship standings after three rounds and is 29 points behind championship leader and Prema Powerteam teammate Juri Vips from Estonia. The next event in the sevenround championship will be

held at Oschersleben, Germany, from July 7-9. Last year, Armstrong was picked up by the Ferrari Driver Academy. He was in New Zealand over the summer and competed in the Toyota Racing Series, which

he finished fourth in. Armstrong is also currently competing in the Italian Formula 4 Championship with Prema Powerteam and is currently fourth in the championship standings after two rounds.

In Brief SCHOOL CROSS-COUNTRY Ascot Golf Course will host the National Secondary Schools Cross-Country Championships this weekend. Saturday sees the running of the individual and school team championship events. On Sunday, competitors will race in the regional relay, which Canterbury dominated last year, winning four of the six titles and getting medals in the other two. St Bede’s College student Nick Moulai, who broke a nine-year-old under-17 3000m national track and field record in December, will be among the favourites. SHARPE TAKES OVER AS COUNTRY CRICKET COACH Michael Sharpe will return to the Canterbury Country Cricket fold next season with his appointment as coach of the senior representative team. Sharpe played most of his cricket for Sefton, including 50 matches for the senior team. Following a playing career that involved 31 first class and 33 one-day games for Canterbury, he turned to coaching, which has also involved time with the Canterbury side and New Zealand under-19s. He replaces Shanan Stewart, who as a player-coach in 30 games, won and defended the Hawke Cup.

Teens share path to youth World Cup „„ By Gordon Findlater THREE YOUNG footballers can now call themselves teammates at club, provincial and international level. Rebecca Lake, 18, Lily Bray, 16, and Emma Clarke, 17, are used to lining up together for both Coastal Spirit in the Mainland Women’s Premier League and the Canterbury United Pride in the National Women’s League. The trio will now represent New Zealand together at next month’s under-19 Oceania Women’s Championship in Auckland after being named in coach Gareth Turnbull’s 20-strong squad. The championship winner will qualify for next year’s under-20 World Cup. Lake was a regular in New Zealand’s central defence at last year’s under-17 World Cup in Jordan. She along with Bray and Clarke will now push their case for a spot in the under-20 World Cup in France. “I’ve never experienced

anything like the atmosphere in Jordan. It’s definitely made me hungry to push my case for another World Cup,” said Lake. Midfielder Bray has previously represented New Zealand in a tournament in China and at just 16 will be eligible for the

next two under-20 World Cups. It’s a new experience for right-back Clarke. The qualifying tournament will be her first time representing New Zealand. “I couldn’t believe it to be honest when I got the news,”

said Clarke. Turnbull also has a strong Coastal and Canterbury connection. He coached the Coastal women’s premier side from 2009 to 2012, before moving on to coach the Pride, leading them to national titles in 2013 and 2014. Turnbull was no mug on the field himself and is regarded as one of Coastal’s greatest players. He previously held the Mainland Premier League’s all-time leading goal-scorer record with 94 goals, a mark that was only surpassed last month by Cashmere Technical’s Michael White. Before the girls head to Auckland, they have a must win game for their club. Coastal take on Cashmere in the third round of the national knockout cup on June 24. The two teams are also currently level on points at the top of the WPL standings. “We beat them recently so we’re confident. The knockout is a competition we really want to progress far in,” said Clarke.

Changes to junior cricket encourage faster game CANTERBURY Cricket will implement changes to transform the junior game next summer. Juniors will now start their cricket journey on grounds with shorter pitches, smaller boundaries and with less fielders, to enable a faster paced game with increased activity. Canterbury Cricket believes the changes will result in more balls in play, more runs scored and increased fielder activity. The changes include a reduction in pitch length from 20m to 16-18m, depending on the group’s stage, limited boundary sizes and either seven or nine players on the field. Players will progress to playing on the full-sized adult pitch, and with 11 players on the field, after participating in two

development stages: The under10/11s and the under-12/13s. The changes are based on extensive research and piloting by Cricket Australia and have been endorsed by New Zealand Cricket, which expects the

changes to be implemented country-wide in the 2018/19 season. Feedback from the pilot programmes in Australia showed that a shorter pitch resulted in fewer wides and no balls, and the match scorecards showed that there were more balls in the hitting zone for the batsmen. Canterbury Cricket chief executive Lee Germon urged people to consider the changes as a great opportunity for children to develop their skills in a fun and engaging way. “Some of these formats are already being played successfully throughout Canterbury and this will ensure consistency throughout our province,” said Germon. He said the modifications

would allow children to better develop their skills, experience more success, build greater confidence and be more involved in each game. “I’m confident that these changes are the most important Canterbury Cricket will make to junior participation,” said Germon. A road show of information sessions will be developed with local cricket associations in Canterbury over the winter, which will provide the opportunity for parents, children and others involved in cricket to understand and ask any questions about the formats. Germon finishes up with Canterbury Cricket at the end of the month to begin a role as Sydney Thunder general manager in July.

Kevin Proctor set to make return for Titans following drug ban GOLD COAST forward Kevin Proctor is poised to make his NRL return from a four-match illicit drug ban with the Titans facing a tricky task to make the finals. Proctor copped the suspension from the Titans – as well as a $20,000 fine – after being caught using what was believed to be cocaine in Canberra on May 5 following the Anzac test. Chris McQueen, who often partnered with Proctor in the second row for the Titans, told

AAP Proctor’s chomping at the bit after spending seven weeks on the sideline. The Titans take on the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Sydney tomorrow night. “He’d be a massive inclusion for us, the suspension’s been burning away at him. I’m expecting a big game for him this week,” McQueen said. “He knows how to win games and he’s not scared of the hard work, he’s more than willing to put his body on the line for the team.

“He brings a lot of leadership, we have still got a lot of young guys who haven’t got a lot of experience and to have a guy like him is invaluable.” Proctor’s last match for the Titans was their 38- 8 win over Newcastle in round nine and, since he’s been banned, Gold Coast have lost three of their last four fixtures. A veteran of 186 games, Proctor averages 25 tackles per game this season and his stability in defence is much needed with

the Titans conceding the third highest amount of tries in the NRL. The 13th-placed Titans are out of form losing their last three games on the trot, but McQueen is demanding a fight for the rest of the season. “Mathematically speaking, I think we’ve only got two or three losses in us for the rest of the year,” McQueen said. “We’ve put ourselves into a difficult position but we’re going to fight until the end of the year.”

Titans: William Zillman, Anthony Don, Dale Copley, Konrad Hurrell, John Olive, Chris McQueen, Ashley Taylor, Nathaniel Peteru, Pat Politoni, Ryan James (c), Kevin Proctor, Joe Greenwood, Leivaha Pulu. Interchange: Morgan Boyle, Eddy Pettybourne, Max King, Paterika Vaivai, Ben Nakubuwai, Phillip Sami, Keegan Hipgrave, Jamal Fogarty. Referees: Ashley Klein, Alan Shortall.

Driven

Little Lexus leaves big impression „„ By Ross Kiddie OVER THE years I’ve made no secret of the fact that I like sports sedans. If you add that to my desire for Lexus product, and the IS series in total, then you’d have to agree that I’m a little bit smitten with the latest IS – a series that lands with three engine options. Topping the line-up is a 3-litre V6 petrol at $107,900, there’s the 2.5litre hybrid driveline ($77,300 and $88,700), and the baby of the series – the IS200t starting at $74,300. As its nomenclature suggests, the latter is a 2-litre turbocharged model and it is a car that punches well above its weight and, in my opinion, is by far the pick of the series. Regular readers will recall my recent evaluation on the RC200t, Lexus’ small and sporty coupe, it was a car I enjoyed immensely. The IS200t uses much the same driveline, but as I’ve eluded to, it is packaged in a sedan body shell. The test car was an F-Sport model and sits in the line-up at $84,900 which, to my way of thinking, is good value considering that it is a premium car built to all the Lexus values of quality and performance. It is high-specced with all the trimmings for comfort and convenience along with a high level of safety. There are no surprises, buyers want for nothing. Under the bonnet sits the heart of what makes the IS200t so special – a fourcylinder, twin-camshaft, turbocharged engine of 180kW and 350Nm. Both outputs are realised low in the rev band at 5800rpm and 1650rpm respectively. It drives through an eightspeed automatic transmission, and between the two the flow of power is exciting, or gentle, depending on the conditions at any given time. When Lexus New Zealand launched the new series, motoring journalists

were invited to the Taupo Motorsport Park and we were treated to laps on the circuit under the guise of professional race drivers. I can report that all three variants, yes, even the hybrid, equipped themselves well on track, but to me it was the turbo model that stood out. The gentle flow of boost and the quiet and refined manner with which the engine operates is true to the Lexus ideology. • Price – Lexus IS200t, $84,900 • Dimensions – Length, 4680mm; width, 1810mm; height, 1430mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, rear-wheeldrive, 1998cc, 180kW, 350Nm, eight-speed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 7.5sec • Fuel usage – 7.5l/100km

What also makes the IS rather special is the way the chassis and suspension has been set up. Of course, Lexus’ engineers haven’t lost sight of the benefits of rearwheel-drive, and the IS is set up so that it can be used in a sporty environment, the combination of sensible spring and damper ratings and perfect steering just reinforces my adulation. On my home patch I took it west on the scenic route to Terrace Downs. I didn’t push too hard in the corners, for I felt the Taupo experience was enough to evaluate its handling prow-

ess. Instead, I travelled at a leisurely pace, soaking up the ambience of what makes Lexus so special as a brand. The IS200t travels ever so quietly and is a joy to be behind the wheel of. It is smooth and feels just so unbelievable from behind the wheel, the steering is like turning on velvet and the chassis responds comfortably to any broken surface or directional change. If quick acceleration is required the engine and gearbox respond swiftly to throttle pressure, an overtaking manoeuvre can be achieved in 4sec while a standstill to acceleration time of 7.5sec is just enough to release the endorphins. At highway speed the engine turns over slowly and economically at just 1750rpm, sipping fuel at the rate of just seven litres per 100km (40mpg). When I took the car back the trip computer was listing a 9l/100km (31mpg) average which sits well with Lexus’ 7.5l/100km (37mpg) claim. The IS200t isn’t a big car, but it does fit five without a squeeze, the interior detailing is such that it reeks of quality and luxury build. For me, though, it’s all about performance and I know it’s a bold statement, but I firmly believe that as a series the IS is one of the world’s great all-rounders. I applaud Lexus’ product planners, in an age when sedans are struggling in a wilting market, great cars like the IS, and others, are rolling out of the Lexus factories. I’m the owner of one of the early forerunners to the IS series and enjoy it very much as a daily drive. That being the case, it would be a natural transition to step into an IS, and I’m desperate to do that, the only thing standing in my way is I’m yet to pick the winning Lotto balls.

Ask a few to get a broader picture of the market, then ask to see listings for properties similar to yours that have sold in the past six months.

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 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.

We have achieved record breaking prices recently!

Make The Move To Oamaru!

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 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.
