Stadium shortfall won’t cost ratepayers – Dalziel „„ By Bridget Rutherford CHRISTCHURCH ratepayers will not be asked to fund any shortfall for a multi-purpose arena. A pre-feasibility study released yesterday recommended a 25,000 permanent and 5000 temporary seat, multi-purpose arena with a full roof and retractable playing field be built at a cost of $496 million. Under the cost share agreement with Government, the city council’s contribution is capped at $253 million, which is set aside in its budget from 20232026. The Crown has spent about $60 million acquiring the land for the facility, between Hereford, Tuam, Madras and Barbadoes Sts. That leaves a $243 million shortfall. Mayor Lianne Dalziel said yesterday Christchurch ratepayers would not fork out the extra. “I won’t be going back to the people of Christchurch and asking them to meet that shortfall. We have to look to central Government, we have to look to external partners, we have to look to the wider region in order to find that support.” She said it would not sell functional assets to pay for it either. A Crown-funded business case will now be prepared. Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration Nicky Wagner would not say whether the Government would put more money in. •Turn to page 5 •Editor’s view, page 2

Inside

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK LIANNE DALZIEL appears to have put a stake in the ground over the city’s stadium: Ratepayers won’t have to front up with any funding shortfall. Yesterday’s recommendation that a 30,000 seat, multi-purpose arena with a full roof and retractable playing field be built at a cost of $496 million would be fantastic. But the city council is only putting in $253 million – the rest has to be found somewhere. Dalziel’s stand will be a relief for many ratepayers who already struggle to pay their quarterly bills. But it will be a disappointment to sports fans – and concert-goers – who want a covered stand in the city, a no-brainer really given our winters. It would draw not only rugby tests, but NRL matches and the potential down the track for a franchise based here in Christchurch. But it all has to be paid for and in a city of 400-odd thousand what we want just might be a bridge too far. – Barry Clarke

News Planning for the big day „„ By Bridget Rutherford MONIQUE BATES is trying to cram as much wedding planning in to two weeks as possible while she is home in Christchurch before returning to England. So the 26-year-old has decided to go to the With This Ring Bridal Show on Sunday with her mother Jacqui and bridesmaid Lauren Sandri to get in as much planning as she can. Ms Bates and her fiance Paul Grant, 29, live in Bath. Mr Grant, who used to captain Otago, plays rugby for Bath. The pair moved there in January, but had previously lived in Nottingham and Montpellier, France. Ms Bates, who is a physical education teacher, said she was looking forward to seeing what the show had to offer. “For our situation, having so many businesses in one place you can tick off things you have done

PREPARATION: Monique Bates will go to the With This Ring Bridal Show on Sunday to prepare for her wedding with fiance Paul Grant next year.

The With This Ring Bridal Show will be held at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand in Wigram on Sunday from 10am3pm. •Full details, pages 28 and 29 and look at things that interest you further,” she said. “It’s nice to involve mum in a bit of the wedding planning when I’m back.” Ms Bates and Mr Grant got engaged while on a short holiday at Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain, in March and will get married at Prebbleton’s Pemberton in June. “Originally, we thought we were going to have a summer wedding in Central Otago, but with Paul’s job, we had to go for winter,” Ms Bates said. They won’t return to New Zealand until just before their wedding, so the chance to plan while they were here was good, she said. “It’s so nice to meet people to put a face to the emails.”

Win a honeymoon at bridal show WEDDING AND bridesmaid gowns, jewellers, honeymoons, flowers, caterers and more. The With This Ring Bridal Show on Sunday is a must for those planning weddings. More than 80 wedding specialists will come together at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand, Wigram, to exhibit their services and answer any questions. There will be more than $17,000 in prizes to be given away. That will include a $5000

honeymoon in the Maldives and a $2700 stay in a Samoan resort. Other prizes to be drawn at the show include an $849 Michael Hill Everlight diamond pendant and a $500 Executive Limousines Hummer or town car package. The show will also feature the latest in bridal fashion, with two fashion parades on the runway. They will take place at 11am and 2pm.

In Brief ANOTHER BABY DEATH Two baby deaths three days apart are not suspicious, police said. Emergency services were called to a property on Bournemouth Cres, Aranui, at 7.51am yesterday after reports that a five-and-a-halfmonth-old baby had died. On Monday, emergency services were called to a Fitzgerald Ave address in the central city after the death of a six-month-old. Both have now been referred to the coroner, Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Worner said. He said it was tragic to have two similar cases just days apart. SANTA PARADE SPONSOR After months of uncertainty over its future, there is more good news for the Christchurch Santa Parade. Telecommunications company MultiMedia Communications has stepped in as a major sponsor. Managing director Mike Gardiner said the community in Christchurch had been through a lot and the parade was something positive. Parade organiser Pam Morris said the sponsorship would make a huge difference. CROWNE PLAZA FUTURE A report on how to decide the future of the former Crowne Plaza site will be put to city councillors next month. The Kilmore St site, now known as The Commons, is used as a community space. City council head of facilities, property and planning Bruce Rendall said no decisions had been made about the site’s future. He said councillors would consider a report on a “community engagement” process next month. HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR Holocaust survivor Peter Gaspar will tell his story at the Villa Maria College Auditorium next Wednesday. The 80-year-old, who lives in Melbourne, is visiting as a guest of the Jewish Federation of NZ. Born in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia, in 1937, Mr Gaspar and his mother were kept in the Terezin concentration camp. The free talk will take place at 7.30pm.

Triplets brighten lives through the web „„ By Gabrielle Stuart AT SIX weeks old, Sarah and Fionn O’Leary’s triplets are already world-famous. A video of Toby, Sadie and Macy has gone viral, viewed by more than five million people since it was posted online a week ago. Mrs O’Leary said she had been shocked by how fast the video and photos had spread. “When I first saw the shares grow I said to Fionn our babies are on all these people’s Facebook pages, it was a bit weird. “But then I saw all the positive feedback, and people saying it had brightened up their day. I was stoked about that, to think they were making so many people happy,” she said. The fraternal triplets were born three weeks early last month, each less than a minute apart. The photoshoot was done when they were 21-days-old by Hazel&Cass baby photographer Cassandra English, and recorded by videographer Emma Smart. Mrs O’Leary said there was no history of multiple births in her family or her husband’s, so the

triplets took the whole family by surprise. The Hoon Hay couple already had two sons, Olly, 5, and Archy, 1. “We went in for our 12-week scan, and we were just thinking it would be our third and final child,” she said. ‘There’s always a third that I don’t have a third hand for.’ – Sarah O’Leary When the nurse told them there were three babies, they thought it was a joke, she said. “Being already pregnant and emotional, I was overwhelmed. I burst out crying and I was laughing one minute and crying the next. I don’t think the lady doing the ultrasound had ever seen anything like it,” she said. She said the triplets had brought extra challenges. “There’s always a third that I don’t have a third hand for,” she said. She had to leave her job as a hairdresser three months early because she struggled to spend a lot of time on her feet while pregnant, Mr O’Leary had to

But she said the triplets made it all worth it. “They’re so amazing, I can sit there and stare at them for so long. They’re developing their own personalities, it’s the best part.” Although the triplets were not identical, she said a birthmark was the only obvious difference between the girls. “Sadie’s always in the middle when we put them in a row, so we know who’s who,” she said.

New trails for park THE Christchurch Adventure Park is set to reopen before the end of the year – but it will look very different. About two thirds of the trees in the park have had to be removed because of fire damage, and the 18 mountain bike tracks are being redesigned. The $25 million park has been closed since the tracks, chairlift and zip lines were badly damaged in February’s Port Hills fire, which hit three months after it opened. Christchurch Adventure Park spokeswoman Maree Wilson said there was a huge amount of damage across the park. She said the whole shape of the hill had changed since the fire. “It’s the logging operation that has caused a lot of damage, with the removal of the trees. So because of that there’s a huge job ahead to get the trails up and running,” she said. A replacement haul rope for the chairlift recently arrived from Austria, and new zip lines also needed to be installed, she said. She said about 30 of the adventure park staff had stayed on, and those who were not busy with

the repairs had spent their time volunteering in the community. That included teaching cycle skills at schools, cooking for Ronald McDonald House, helping with classes at the Christchurch City Mission and taking children at Cholmondeley Children’s Centre for bike rides. The park is set to reopen before Christmas, but Ms Wilson said they could not set a date yet because there was still so much work to be done.

The recent rain had turned the park into “a big mud pie”, and that made the job harder, she said. “If the weather’s kind to us, things will move a lot faster. It hasn’t been that way in the last few weeks, so fingers crossed we’re getting through that and moving into sunshine,” she said. She said regular updates would be posted on the Christchurch Adventure Park Facebook page.

What’s being done about Canterbury’s water quality?

Stadium won’t cost ratepayers •From page 1 She said the business case, which would begin “as soon as possible,” would work through that. Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman Megan Woods said the party needed to work through the details before deciding whether it would put more money in if it came into Government. Selwyn District Council Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall told The Star they would be open to discussing how to help. “We are Canterbury, we’re certainly wishing to help in some form of solution, but we need to match that with how many people we’ve got.” Ashburton District Council Mayor Donna Favel said they were “always open for discussion.” “We were quite pleased we were able to keep the rates down this year through costeffectiveness. To go out and have to include more things, I don’t know how it’s going to go down.” Waimakariri District Council Deputy Mayor Kevin Felstead said: “I personally think as the wider district we should be contributing, but how much I don’t know.”

IMPRESSIVE: An artist’s impression of what the favoured multi-purpose arena would look like. ​ Ms Dalziel said the city council funding could be brought forward from the current 2023, after public consultation, so construction could begin earlier. But that would need to be done before the long term plan is finalised in June, and the shortfall funding would need to be found before then. It would take about five to six years to build. Ms Dalziel said an uncovered stadium was not an option because it needed to be multipurpose. “I’m confident it’s what the people of Christchurch and Canterbury want.”

Look a little deeper at the action being taken to improve our precious water. This year, there are new requirements on farmers to limit the effects of farming on water quality. The majority of farmers are already doing the right thing, but more needs to be done to truly improve our precious water. We are working with farmers so that they know exactly what they need to do. It will take time for these improvements to have an effect on our water quality and quantity, but we’re off to a good start. Look a little deeper at

Hostage rescuer meets family of Star „„ By Bridget Rutherford A FORMER Israeli soldier who helped plan the rescue of passengers during a 1970s plane hijacking has met with the family of the Christchurch couple held hostage during the ordeal. Rami Sherman met Colin and Nola Hardie’s family on Sunday, while he was in Christchurch to talk about his role in the rescue mission that became known as Operation Entebbe. Mr and Mrs Hardie were the only New Zealand passengers of the Air France plane that was hijacked by German and Palestinian terrorists after it left Athens on June 27, 1976. Mr Hardie was general manager of The Star at the time. He wrote notes on his arms and Air France stationery, as well as a floor plan of the airport terminal they were held in, so they could be used for an exclusive article in The Star. The Hardies were among a group of hostages who were released three days after the hijacking. Mr Hardie, who had an army background, was then interviewed by the Israeli Defence Forces, en route to London via

in its success. Yet, until he saw the article about his visit in last week’s Star, he had no idea. “Even after 40 years it’s a big puzzle with many different pieces and to find new pieces, it was so exciting.” He immediately wanted to meet the family. So New Zealand Friends of Israel Association president Tony Kan, who organised for Mr Sherman to visit Christchurch, then helped track down the Hardies’ children through the Ancestry website. The family, including two of the Hardie’s daughters Jan Hardie and Robyn Hamilton, her husband Ian, son Nick, his wife Megan and their three children Poppi, Maggie and James, went to the talk at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand. Their other daughter Lynne Hardie, couldn’t make it down from Motueka in time. Jan Hardie got up and spoke about their parents’ experience. “We hugged each other and I almost cried because I can go to them and show how much I appreciate their father,” Mr Sherman said.

manager who helped operation After the talk, the group went to The Good Home Wigram restaurant. They talked and looked through a large scrap book filled with newspaper articles about the hijacking, Mr Hardie’s exclusive story in The Star, his handwritten notes on Air France stationery and a sick bag, and the floor plan he had drawn. Robyn Hamilton, Colin and Nola’s eldest daughter, said her late parents would have loved to meet Mr Sherman. “I said it’s part of our history and it will never happen again.” She said during the hijacking the family got together to listen to radio news bulletins, which was the only information they received. “It was very scary.” She remembered her parents calling from Kenya to say they had been released. Mrs Hamilton was pregnant at the time, and after the hijacking she went into early labour. “I nearly lost Dallas. I went into labour at six months, after it all happened. They managed to stop the contractions, but it was the stress of it all.” Jan Hardie said after the ordeal

unit that planned Operation Entebbe after the plane was hijacked, diverted to Libya, then

to Entebbe in Uganda with permission from Uganda president Idi Amin. The original four hijackers were demanding the release of Palestinians held in Israel, and detainees in four other countries. They threatened to kill the hostages if their demands were not met. Robyn Hardie said her father spoke of one of the hijackers being a woman who was “horrible”. About 148 of the hostages who were not Israeli or Jewish, including the Hardies, were released by the terrorists three days after the hijacking. Seven days after the plane was hijacked, Israeli forces secretly landed at the airport in Hercules aircarft and stormed the unused terminal where the hostages were being kept. Three hostages were killed during the operation. Twenty Ugandan soldiers and seven hijackers were also killed. The remaining 102 hostages were freed. Mr Sherman said he would go home and tell others about the Hardies’ role in Operation Entebbe. “It was amazing to look at their story.”

Who you gonna call? „„ By Bridget Rutherford A BARE bottom hippo, a sewage plant photoshoot and a dog that wandered into the local pub. While the majority of calls to the city council’s 24/7 contact centre relate to rates, planning, wheelie bins and building consents, it can field some odd ones too. Some people want help – even if it is out of the city council’s jurisdiction – others have strange requests and some just want to express their opinion. One woman rang to complain about the red hippopotamus sculpture next to the children’s playground at the Botanic Gardens, asking what a hippo had to do with New Zealand. She also said it should be wearing clothes as “children shouldn’t see a bare bottom hippo”. Another woman rang requesting the animal management team come to her home immediately to assess a paw print she found in her garden. One caller asked if a city council employee could inspect their log burner door to see why it wouldn’t close properly.

OFFENSIVE: One woman rang the city council to complain about the “bare bottom hippo” near the children’s playground in the Botanic Gardens. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

In 2015, someone contacted saying: “I am calling as I had a two-hour wait at the doctor and what are you going to do about it?” Meanwhile, the contact centre was able to reunite a man with his lost dog after it wandered into a pub. One of the more unusual calls included a man calling to ask why his toilet water was brown – after he had done his business. Just in case, he told staff he had “taken a sample”. In 2015, a man asked how he could gain access to Bromley’s sewage treatment plant so he and a friend could dress in formal attire so one could “serenade” the other.

“We would then have our photos taken for entry into a worldwide scavenger hunt run by actor Misha Collins,” he said. Other people asked how much postage to Kuala Lumpur was, where the city council got its curtains and how many men there were in the stretch release class on Tuesday at 10.30am. The city council says in spite of the strange requests, the team tried to help callers where possible, and many people liked talking to them because they were friendly. Last year, the centre’s 100 staff received 521,380 calls and answered 33,590 emails, as well as social media queries.

But they say there is no need, because they meet weekly. In June, The Star requested all correspondence between the pair since it was announced Ms Wagner would take over as Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration on April 24. But Ms Wagner responded saying no relevant correspondence had been identified. She told The Star they met weekly, and their staff corresponded for them. “That’s the way it works, we often meet for breakfast and our staff talk to one another,” she said. “We’ve got to be quite good friends really.” She said the catch-ups meant they were both on the same page. “Right now we’re moving back to local government so we’re working together to make it smooth.” Ms Dalziel said there were no minutes taken at the weekly meetings. She said Deputy Mayor An-

drew Turner also attended, as well as chief executive Karleen Edwards and Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet Greater Christchurch Group director Kelvan Smith. Ms Dalziel said examples of what had been discussed at the meetings included the City Leaders’ Forum, Christ Church Cathedral, Regeneration Christchurch, An Accessible City projects and key projects. “A significant advantage of having the Minister outside Cabinet is that she is here on Mondays, as well as Fridays,” Ms Dalziel said. “Setting up meetings with Minister Brownlee was challenging due to pressures on his time and his obligations as senior Cabinet minister.” •Viewpoint, p19 & 20

News Smoke alarm location Council cleared over car park may have been factor in house fire death „„ By Andrew King A SMOKE alarm in the wrong place could have contributed to the death of Christchurch photographer Leonard Robert Wesney after a fire broke out at his Cashel St home. Mr Wesney died in his Linwood property in the early hours of August 14. Specialist fire investigator Mark Thomas said there were some smoke alarms in the property but one was in the wrong position. “The last one, still sounding when firefighters entered, was in the bedroom where the occupant was found. But this one wasn’t on the ceiling where the backing plate remained,” he said. “It had been brought down too low to give adequate warning. Had the alarm just been left on the ceiling, at the highest point in the room, there’s a chance the victim would have had time to escape.” He said they could not determine if the other had been maintained or not.

‘Had the alarm just been left on the ceiling, at the highest point in the room, there’s a chance the victim would have had time to escape’ – Mark Thomas

Fire investigators ruled the blaze was not suspicious and probably accidental. “Part of what we do is to constantly strive to prevent such things happening by ensuring people have smoke alarms and escape plans,” Mr Thomas said. Mr Wesney was a painter and photographer, who had his work exhibited across the world, including a solo exhibition at the Qantas Gallery in London. He worked as a photographer for The Star until 1982.

„„ By Bridget Rutherford AN INQUIRY has cleared the city council of any wrongdoing after it put millions of dollars into a private car parking development in the central city. The Office of the Auditor General made “preliminary inquiries” into the city council’s $28 million contribution to The Crossing car parking building on Lichfield St. But spokesman Mike Heine said after discussing it with the city council and considering the information, it decided not to undertake a formal review or inquiry. “Due to the size of Christchurch City Council’s contribution to The Crossing car park development, we made some preliminary inquiries to see whether this was a matter that our office should more formally inquire into.” Mr Heine said the office did not receive any external requests to look into it. “In this case, this issue came up in the normal course of the auditor’s work.” City council finance and commercial general manager Carol Bellette said the city council was “comfortable” with the decision.

CLEARED: The city council has been cleared of any wrongdoing in relation to putting $28 million into The Crossing car park.

She said the city council was not surprised the office had looked into it because Audit New Zealand had signalled it would likely follow the year-end audit last year. In June last year, The Star revealed the city council had set aside $28 million for The Crossing car park, as part of the $70 million it had allocated to central city parking. The decision was made by the city council in 2014 to “confirm its commitment to providing at least its pre-earthquake level of off-street car parking in Lichfield St and at The Crossing”. Ms Bellette said the city council had no involvement with The Crossing car parking building now and did not have a say on the parking charges. “However, we do monitor the

percentage of short term car parks to ensure compliance with the agreement.” In April, The Star reported the now defunct Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority made a $600,000 payment to the company behind The Crossing development, A.B. Investments Ltd. It was paid after CERA staff asked the company to change the plans for the development to make it work better with the Bus Interchange across the road. But Mr Heine said the inquiry had nothing to do with that, and the office had no plans to look into it. The Crossing car park opened at the end of last year. Retail stores in the $140 million development will open progressively from next month.

News Giant car hub planned for Johns Rd

„„ By Bridget Rutherford A VEHICLE distribution company wants to build a new base that could hold up to 5000 cars on 11ha of former quarry land near Christchurch Airport. The Car Distribution Group has applied for resource consent to build a distribution and storage base, including an office, staff facilities and a cleaning bay, at 711 Johns Rd. Currently, the company has six sites across the city, providing storage for between 2500-5000 vehicles on behalf of Toyota, Ford, Holden, Hyundai, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Chrysler, Honda and SsangYong. If approved, the new facility would combine all of the storage areas in one. It would be the company’s main South Island depot, operated by 10 staff. Vehicles would be brought onto the site by the car transporter before being distributed around the South Island and Christchurch car rental and sales markets. The New Zealand Transport Agency has requested the entrance be on the Waimakariri Rd side of the site. Submissions on the plan can be made on the city council website.

Consultation: The buzz Almost everything the city council does these days is consulted on – but why? Bridget Rutherford reports THE COLOUR of hydroslides, no stopping restrictions, tree removals and cycleways. If the city council wants to do something these days, it’s likely it will publicly consult. But why? Under the Local Government Act, the city council must provide anyone who will, or may be, affected by a decision, or anyone with an interest, with the opportunity and information to express their views. City council engagement manager Katy McRae said the city council received those views with an open mind, and considered them when making decisions. Some say it’s overkill. Others say the city council doesn’t listen. Things the city council consults on can range.

DECIDED: After consultation, the city council chose to go with the blue hydroslide at the new Eastern Recreation and Sport Centre. ​

Recently, there’s been consultation on whether to transfer parcels of land in New Brighton and Sydenham to Development Christchurch, the removal of 18 silver birch trees from Halswell’s Rempstone Drive, the location of the new South West Leisure Centre, restricting vehicle access on Summit Rd to curb the boy racer problem, and

the controversial cycleways, to name a few. People can have their say on city council finances and priorities through the long term and annual plans – although this year, only 1488 submitted, 65 per cent of whom were from New Brighton. Consultation happens through a range of mediums,

including online submissions, letterbox drops, social media and meetings. And sometimes, the city council consults even when it isn’t required to. In February, it asked for feedback on what colour people wanted to see the hydroslides painted at the new Eastern Recreation and Sport Centre. The options were blue, or red and black. It received 2000 responses, and blue came out trumps. Ms McRae said the only cost of that engagement was staff time, which was “very minimal”. “Voting on the colour of the hydroslide is not something we had to do under the Local Government Act, but it is a great way of engaging with people to help build interest and excitement in the new facility.” Ms McRae said the city council followed a three step approach to “inform decision making”. The first step was to determine the level of significance for each project. For example, anything to do with the annual and long term plans had high significance, she said.

word in local government Then, the significance is linked to the level of engagement that would be used. The last step was to consider the methods that would be best suited to meet the “engagement goals” of each project, she said. “This helps to ensure decisionmaking and engagement processes are transparent and clearly expressed, and that the community has clarity on the range of engagement methods the council may use.” City councilJamie Gough lor Jamie Gough said, at times, the city council “over consulted”. “I think inherently, because I’ve got the private sector running through my veins, I naturally feel council can be guilty of over consulting. Because ultimately, I just think people want stuff to happen, positive stuff.” He said there was a time and place for consultation, but having a “genuine conversation” with the community could add a lot of value. “Yes, it can frustrate me.

times, I understand the need to consult. But it’s just the nature of the beast, that’s what local government is,” Cr Gough said. “We have to have that conversation with the community because, at the end of the day, it’s their money.”

Cr Gough said the hydroslide colours were more engagement than consultation because it didn’t cost anything and was a nice idea. Some say the city council doesn’t listen to public feedback. The Halswell-Hornby-Ricca-

rton Community Board recently recommended the new South West Leisure Centre be built on Denton Park, in spite of only 38 per cent saying they wanted it there through consultation. Both the Hornby cricket and rugby clubs want the facility built at Kyle Park. Hornby Cricket Club committee member Kevin Hornbrook said the decision did not reflect what the people wanted. He questioned why the city council even bothered consulting if it wasn’t going to listen. “I don’t want to see our green space disappear, but we do not have a say.” He said communication had also been poor. “The community wouldn’t have a bloody clue what’s going on because they haven’t been told anything. Clubs don’t know what’s going on, the community

board has never met with us.” City councillor David East said he would like to see the whole consultation process reviewed. “It really needs to be overhauled and we need to be getting effective consultation, not just doing it because we have to.” He said things needed to be ironed out, so the feedback was coming from the right people and the information was accurate. “One recently for the Christchurch School of Gymnastics David East on QE II, the information put out initially was not so flash. The maps were not accurate so it needed to change,” he said. “Some documents can go out and they’re fairly slanted or weighted, or questions are aimed at getting a particular outcome.” •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think the city council consults too much?

News Ewen Macdonald takes out Irish rugby award

„„ By Andrew King A MAN acquitted of murdering his brother-in-law has been named forward of the year for the Belfast classic rugby side known as ‘The Munchers’. Ewen Macdonald (left) was “bloody handy”, his coach Richard Humm said yesterday. “[He] doesn’t take a backward step, gets stuck in,” he said. Scott Guy, Macdonald’s brother-in-law, was found dead after being shot on the driveway of his Feilding, Manawatu, farm in the early hours of July 8, 2010. Macdonald was found not guilty of the murder in 2012. He was released from Rolleston Prison in November 2015 after serving five years for arson, vandalising Mr Guy’s home, and stealing and killing stock in Feilding. He was denied parole four times, before being released six months short of serving his full sentence. Mr Humm did not want to comment further on Macdonald’s involvement in the side, saying there are “40 players in the team”.

Roads to Raeward Fresh are open Relief as road works finished „„ By Bridget Rutherford AFTER MORE than two years of ongoing road works outside the store, things are starting to look up for Raeward Fresh Harewood. Owner Kerri Lee said since work began on upgrading Russley Rd in 2015, their average customer turnover had dropped by 30 per cent. About 2000 fewer customers were coming in each week, she said. “It’s been quite hard to keep staying positive about the future of the business.” But she said the road works are coming to an end on the road outside the store. She said it needed to be done and was progress for the city, but they had been “hanging in there”. “We just really want people to know we’re still around and we want the community to still

consider us their local store.” The New Zealand Transport Agency has been doing a $112 million upgrade of part of Russley Rd to make it a four-lane expressway. The intersection of Harewood and Russley Rds, which Raeward Fresh sits next to, had a larger roundabout installed and a pedestrian and cycle underpass was built. Another roundabout was built at the intersection of Orchard and Harewood Rds. During construction, it was

difficult for customers to find the store’s entrance. There had been other ongoing road works here and there, and a BP service station was currently being built on the corner of Harewood and Russley Rds. Ms Lee said their loyal customers and staff had helped keep the business running. “We’ve got 74 staff. Without them, it would have been even harder, they’re just a great team.” She was looking forward to the Russley Rd work being completed, which was due early

next year. “It’s great progress for Christchurch, I agree with what they’re doing.” The 32-year-old bought the store in 2014, a year before the road works began. Her family was in the grocery industry, and she used to work at Raeward Fresh Harewood as a 16-year-old. She decided to buy it because it had a good reputation and a long history. “If people come back and try again, we’re hoping they’ll see that it’s not too bad.”

•HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of the idea of a multi-use arena for Christchurch and who should make up the shortfall. Send your views to bridget.rutherford@starmedia.kiwi

Time to make a decision on stadium THE Stadium Trust’s pre-feasibility study has landed on a covered multi-use arena with a seating capacity of 30,000 as the best option for Christchurch and the wider region. I agree this would be best for Christchurch and best for Canterbury. The stadium – now referred to as the Canterbury Multi Use Arena (CMUA) – was announced by the Government in 2012 as part of the blueprint for the central city, but it was put on the back-burner in 2015. As a council, we just couldn’t commit to the spend when we faced such enormous financial challenges. Our insurance still wasn’t settled when we were signing off the 2015-25 Long Term Plan and it would have been irresponsible to commit to the business case proceeding without knowing how we could fund it. The temporary AMI Stadium

Lianne Dalziel has stood the test of time and has been stretched beyond its intended life. This doesn’t come without a cost and, with the fiveyear guarantee of test matches expiring, it is time to make a decision about our future. The cost-sharing agreement between the Government and council had the council’s contribution towards the CMUA (of up to half the cost) capped at $253 million. The pre-feasibility report confirms that is half the cost, but it doesn’t provide an obvious solution to what is an enormous funding gap. Having landed on a preferred option, it seems logical to me that a business case is now prepared.

Readers respond to last week’s article about people waiting in the rain for the hospital’s park and ride service Mary-Anne Thomson – Common sense should prevail. We have a huge park right in front of the hospital. For goodness sake use some of it temporarily to help everyone (staff and patients) by putting in some parking. I know this will upset some people but we can put it back. Tabitha Yale – Try having a child in a wheelchair you can’t use the park and ride and trying to find a park close enough that you are going to be a drowned rat or so cold you’re changing colour when you get there. Not everyone can be dropped at the door and then go find a car park elsewhere. Something really needs to be done soon about this issue.

Eninaj Ram – I’m sure people can get dropped of out front can’t they? Would of been faster to walk up there. William Potter – Buy an umbrella. Lynne Abel – The other week I used this service after an outpatients appointment. I have MS and can’t stand for very long. So I sat on the seat waiting, however, there were many people standing in line for the shuttle – so each time one arrived I would stand

This will enable everyone – central and local government and all the stakeholders – to consider ways of meeting the funding shortfall. This would also be the vehicle for a consideration of bringing forward the budget for the CMUA in the 2018-28 Long Term Plan, allowing Christchurch residents and businesses to have a real say about what is still a large financial contribution. It’s important to remind everyone that the cost sharing agreement has a default provision for the council to build a 35,000 seat open air stadium on the site allocated in the blueprint. But even that would cost millions

more than we have on budget. The report says the $253 million we have on budget would only pay for an open air 17,500 seating capacity stadium with 60 per cent of seats under roof. That is certainly not what the council signed up for when it signed the cost sharing agreement with central Government and it’s not what the city or the region is expecting. It is also worth noting the sentiment and support for a roof was so strong that many commentators and consultees believed that, if the CMUA is not covered, the city should not commit to the facility. Concert promoters and sports interests reflected the same views. Without the roof, the CMUA simply couldn’t be a competitive, attractive or successful venue. From the report, it is clear that the CMUA must be ‘multi-use’, i.e flexible and adaptable for a wide range of uses to ensure

up, but was always at the back of the long line and never got onto it. I missed six shuttles like this. I started to get hypothermia because I got so cold that I stopped shivering. Eventually someone saw what was happening to me and got the security guard (who had been watching the whole 90min I was there) to get me a wheelchair so I could sit in line and eventually get onto the shuttle. When I got back to my car I had to sit for about 20min with the car heater on full blast before I was safe enough to drive home. I nearly had to phone my son to ask him to come and rescue me. It was a terrible experience. Jocelyn Thomson – I live in Wellington but in last nine months have twice been in Christchurch having to visit the hospital.

its utilisation is maximised wherever possible. This includes utilisation at a minimum for sports events, major concerts and entertainment events, smaller sports and community events. The scale of the investment was considered to require more than a sports stadium. Many people felt the narrative should be “Christchurch wants an arena within which rugby can be played, not a rugby stadium.” I think a lot of people have been surprised that a way of filling the funding gap was not included in the cost sharing agreement. The ratepayers of Christchurch are already being asked to take on half the costs and cannot be asked to take on more. We will be looking for others to stump up. •If you want to ask Ms Dalziel a question, email mayor@ccc.govt.nz. Put Reader’s Question in the subject line.

Nicky Wagner WAITING:

City thriving as a shopping destination AS A Christchurch resident, local MP and the Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration, I’m lucky enough to see and experience so many aspects of life in our city. I hear it all – the questions, the comments and the concerns. It’s been six-and-a-half years since the 2011 quake, and very nearly seven years since the first big one in September 2010. New Zealand had never experienced anything like it and, looking back, it’s fair to say we didn’t really understand how much work needed to be done or how long it would take. We now know it can take 10 or even 20 years to rebuild a city of our size. Yes, that’s a long time. Yes, we can move faster. But I firmly believe we’re making good progress and there’s a lot to be excited about. Earlier this week, Mayor Lianne Dalziel and I visited the new FreshChoice City Market in The Cross-

ing – an extensive project offering retail, hospitality, commercial space and car parking. Before too much longer, it will also host a number of retailers new to Christchurch, including Swedish clothing company H&M and British fashion brand Topshop. These new offerings are completely changing the retail landscape and establishing central Christchurch as a modern and exciting shopping destination. They also show private and commercial investors have confidence in the direction our city is taking and the opportunities it presents. The Retail Precinct is an increasingly vibrant and lively place, attracting more and more people. The hustle and bustle is infectious, so I have no doubt the central city will continue to grow and thrive, especially with developments such as the convention centre on the horizon.

Promise to address mental health services READERS OF my columns over the last couple of years will know full well that the need for more mental health services here in Canterbury is something I am passionate about. In particular, I have been horrified at the lack of support for our children’s mental health. Parents and teachers have been telling us horrific stories of seven and eightyear-olds with a clear need for help having to wait up to 12 weeks to get the help they desperately need. Bed-wetting, behavioural issues and developmental delays are too common. This is not right and cannot continue. For parents, teachers and mental health and well-being professionals, this has been a nightmare. These are dedicated and caring people who have desperately wanted to help these children and the resources have not been there. This is not surprising, as currently our cash-strapped DHB only have funding for seven full-time staff to cover the needs of 136 schools. It has been heartbreaking to watch this unfold. So it was immensely satisfying last week to accompany Jacinda

Ardern to Christchurch to announce Labour’s plans to address this major problem. We’ve made the commitment to fund an extra 80 mental health professionals for the next three years who will work in all Christchurch public primary and intermediate schools. This will mean that there will be a full-time mental health professional for every 500 school children. This is an investment of an extra $10 million in a range of mental health professionals, including psychologists and psychotherapists, as well as social workers, registered nurses and community health workers. We know that our kids in Canterbury still bear the mental scars of the earthquakes and the aftermath, and that the Government sadly hasn’t done what’s needed. Since 2011, there’s been a 73 per cent increase in children and young people going to mental health clinics. A Labour government led by Jacinda Ardern will not let our Christchurch kids go on without the help and support they desperately need. •Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman

People huddle together in the cold rain at the park and ride service on Deans Ave last week. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Tara Francis – I have a disability permit for my son but can never get a park out the front as no matter what time of the day it is they are always full. We end up walking for up to 25min just to get there on time. I hate going to the hospital but have to do it once a week. The first thing the council should’ve done was fix the car park.  Justine Fogarty – This is such a problem and Is really affecting the people who least need more problems. The sick and the carers of the sick. Totally agree Hagley Park by the nurses hostel could be used for a car park. The underground car park was a great solution until we had earthquakes.  Lorraine F Harrison – There is a shelter there, is that for the staff working there? Why can’t they provide one for the commuters also. Getting out of the car once you have found one is bad enough, you step straight into a puddle of water. The potholes all through the car park need fixing up as well. At $5 per car, the owner is sure making a lot of money each day! Janee Sawyer – Terrible situation – lovely drivers and volunteers – but a shocking experience for people either ill or stressed. I know, I did it twice a day for a week with a deepening feeling of dread and horror. Christchurch has had enough – someone do something about this. Please. Jo Downer – My eightyear-old son couldn’t walk so I took him to the hospital by myself, I drove around looking for a car park, couldn’t find one, then found the shuttle one, which was miles away, then had to pay money when your child’s sick it’s the last thing you think about, paid for it, grabbed the shuttle to the hospital, then he was admitted to hospital for influenza b, totally ridiculous when there is a field across the road that could be used. Wendy Birrell – Yes, what do we pay rates for? Sort it out

Jo Kenji Tanouye – Why can hospitals not have underground parking? Going to the hospital is obviously where the vulnerable and less able need to be able to park as close as possible.

city council, it is beyond a joke maybe one day your family will feel the inconvenience and then you will sort it out for the rest of us. Kimberley Gardner – I can’t believe the council hasn’t made this a priority. We must have appropriate and immediate parking for our hospital. This is just not acceptable. Catherine Stanton – Horrific parking situation. Hospital urgently needs parking. This should be its priority.

Kathleen Anne Lawrence – I totally agree. People are far more important than Hagley Park. Tony Winkworth Howell – So there’s no shelter for people waiting for a shuttle? Who is in charge of this debacle? It is after all a hospital not the local mall or airport. Margaret Reid – I would like to make a suggestion about people waiting at the car park. Use a shipping container where people can stay in line under cover.

Jane Macarthy – Unfortunately this has been a huge problem for years, it’s not a new problem. Just got worse after the earthquake

Gary Knight – While the contentious issue of the Deans Ave Park and Ride shuttle facility evolves as an issue of much media coverage, rationale must prevail. In the interim CDHB must receive accolades for implementing this shuttle service for transport to Christchurch hospital as a stop-gap measure pending completion of a permanent car park building to alleviate the chronic parking shortage. As the CDHB operates this service devoid of funding, or car parking revenue, the problem of lack of sheltered facilities at the Deans Ave facility is surely the problem of Global Edge Developments, being the prime lease and operative entity making revenue from the concept.

Chrissi Tukaki – My 93-year-old dad fell over there on the rocks and smashed his head open. It is a business taking cash from the public. The land owners who are sitting on their insurance payouts and creaming the lease money should be forced to seal the parks. Shame on the council and OSH for not enforcing consents and compliance to workplace standards like every other business owner is enforced to do.

Paula Willetts – I go against everyone’s opinions. It’s actually a really good service, you park your car and there’s security there, they have amazing helpful volunteers and very friendly shuttle drivers. We use it frequently for my daughter’s appointments and admissions and only had positive experiences. I guess you can either stand in the rain or park along way away from the hospital and walk in it.

Audrey Leslie – This is inhumane. A good subject for the coming elections. Will Hunter – The problem isn’t the car park obviously, it’s the number of shuttles. Candice Johnson – It’s an absolute nightmare, this should not be happening to hospital out patients, hospital visitors. No bloody parking anywhere, it’s a disgrace.

Gardening An apple a day Rachel Vogan says apples are easy to grow and wonderful to eat, so why not grow your own? REFERRED TO as the world’s most popular fruit, apples are one of the easiest crops to grow. They are often classified as eating or dessert/cooking apples. If room isn’t an issue try to plant a range of apples that mature at different times, so you can have a long harvest period. POLLINATION Apples are pollinated by bees, which move around apple and crab apple trees (which are useful pollinators for apple trees due to their abundance of pollen and long flowering period). If you only have room for one, make sure it’s self-fertile, or if your neighbour has a tree or two, the bees will move from garden to garden to aid in fertilisation. GROWING MAINTENANCE Young apple trees need little pruning other than to train to shape until the plants have multiple branches or when they are starting to take up too much space. Prune to aid air and light movement once established after harvesting in winter. Fertilise in spring with a general-purpose fruit fertiliser; avoid anything that is exceptionally high in nitrogen. MULTI-GRAFTED VARIETIES The expert horticulturalists, who grow the trees, graft the apple variety onto a vigorous rootstock. These rootstocks cope with a variety of soil types and govern the eventual height of the tree. Grafting is nothing new, it has been done

for centuries, and it allows for more than one variety to be grafted onto each rootstock. Multi-grafted apple trees are popular and readily available; some even come in triple grafts, i.e. three varieties of apple on one tree. ONES TO TRY The list of apple trees available is fairly long, with well over 100 different varieties from new hybrids through to those which came out with the first settlers. Here are a few favourites: •  Golden Delicious, Red Delicious both produce large, smooth-skinned fruit.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW •  Full sun is mandatory.

Musicians, kapa haka perform

Senior Music students, pictured above, performed at the newly restored St Barnabas Church in a concert for the Royal Overseas League recently. The audience was treated to a wide variety of instrumental solos and duets and was impressed by both the variety of music and the very high standard of performances. Our kapa haka group (right) featured on stage in the Primary Schools’ Cultural Festival at the Horncastle Arena last week with a number of our Upland students taking part in the performance.

Hillmorton Year 12 and Year 7 students have joined with other student leaders to attend leadership development days at Christ’s College for a number of years. The format for the day is a presentation and a number of workshops. Pictured here, are our Year 12 leaders at this year’s event.

Exchange excites Azriel Hi there. My name is Azriel Taylor, and I am here to tell you about an amazing experience I am able to have this year. I have been officially accepted into a Sister City Exchange programme between Christchurch and Kurashiki, in Japan. The Sister City programme, was created to create international bonds between people, and ideally bring the people of the world closer together. I was presented with this opportunity by Ms Hunt, who recommended me for this opportunity. I sent in my application, and after about four weeks, I got the call that I was accepted. For this exchange, my family will host a Japanese student aged 14, for 19 days, and he will be taken around Christchurch to see all the sights by the Christchurch City

Council, but still having days that he stays with us. Now, this is the important part: the Japanese student will come to Hillmorton High, attend classes, and experience what New Zealand schools are like. We want him to have the best experience of New Zealand schools possible. I will then be staying for 19 days in Kurashiki with his family, where I will be able to experience all that Kurashiki has to offer, courtesy of the Kurashiki City Council, and I will also attend North Junior Kurashiki High School for four days. I am extremely grateful and excited for this opportunity. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Thanks for reading, Azriel Taylor

Success achieved in tech contest Congratulations to Allan Taylor (Year 10) and Jerry Tan (Year 8), both in picture at right, for the High Distinctions they both gained in the recent ICAS Digital Technology competition. Others who did well and were honoured are: Amos Lochead – Participation; Luke Van Barneveld – Merit; Joshua Craig – Distinction; Ezekiel Vincent – Distinction; and Dawson Berry – Distinction.

Allan Taylor and Jerry Tan We look forward to further success from students as other ICAS competitions take place and results come in.

Theatre/Arts

Dancer home for Shakespeare ballet „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding LONG HOURS of dancing on hard pointe shoes has often left ballet dancer Katie HurstSaxton’s feet aching. But for the 31-year-old, the discomfort that has come with mastering the art of elevating her entire body up on to the tip of her toes is just part of the job. “You love it so much, you just do it. Dancers have a certain type of disciKatie pline; if you want Hurst-Saxton to go somewhere you just get on with it,” she said. At the age of 16, she was the youngest dancer to join the Royal New Zealand Ballet fulltime after being scouted by the director at the time Gary Harris. She has since been associated with the company for 16 years. Her career has now led to her performing three significant roles in the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s production of Romeo and Juliet. As the show’s season has 22 performances throughout the country, the company has three revolving casts to prevent the

dancers from becoming bored with their performance. Throughout the season, she will play three significant roles – the ‘lead harlot’, one of Juliet’s friends, and Lady Capulet. A big Shakespeare fan, HurstSaxton was most excited about getting into the role of different characters. “When you are training as a student you work on the more

technical side of things . . . it wasn’t until I could trust my technique I could put artistry and performance on top of that,” she said. In her time, she has had a fair share of injuries. But even breaking her toe and dealing with a stress fracture on her shin has not stopped her from pursuing her biggest passion.

She received the stress fracture performing in one of her most challenging roles as Odette/ Odile in Swan Lake, where she was required to do the iconic 32 fouettes. From a young age, the dancer, who grew up in Spreydon, knew ballet was what she wanted to do as a career. Now based in Wellington, she gave up the experience of going to high school to start training at the International Ballet Academy as a 12-year-old. “I did miss out on all that normal life . . . but it got me where I wanted to be so there are no regrets,” Hurst-Saxton said. She started pointe work when she was nine, far younger than the traditional age of 12 or 13. As a student, she used to sleep in her pointe shoes to make dancing easier. “I would put my pointe shoes on and then big thick socks over my shoe so it would mould into my foot . . . it was not comfortable but it made my shoe fit my foot better,” she said. •Romeo and Juliet will be on at the Isaac Theatre Royal tomorrow and Saturday.

PREMIUM: The Market Place Restaurant, lustily draws its inspiration from Victoria Square’s rich mercantile legacy. PHOTO: KEVIN BAKER

Treat yourself to a night at the Crowne Plaza „„ By Mike Yardley IT WAS a beacon of prestige in the Garden City’s hotel scene. A striking city landmark that inter-connected with the Christchurch Town Hall and served as a glittering backdrop to Victoria Square’s amphitheatre. When it first opened its brass doors in the flashy 80s, the ground-breaking property endowed Christchurch with an irresistible sense of international hotel glamour. I fondly recall savouring my first Wizard’s Potion cocktail at the hotel, as a teenager, while admiring the tube-like glass elevators that soared above the atrium. I half expected to see JR Ewing swagger out of those elevators. And like all Christchurch residents, scores of family birthdays and special occasions were eagerly celebrated within the variety of distinctive venues that studded the hotel. It was a cachet destination. Beginning life under the Park Royal brand before being rebranded the Crowne Plaza, the loss of this emblematic hospitality beacon to the devastating earthquakes, left a gaping hole in the city’s hotel scene. Six years on, it’s such a thrill to see the Crowne Plaza signage gracing the skyline again. Fittingly, the brand-spanking hotel hasn’t strayed far from its former site, taking up residence at the southern end of Victoria Square, on the Colombo/Armagh St corner. Formerly known as the Forsyth Barr building, post-quake, the new property owners have undertaken a multi-million dollar topto-toe makeover, including the installation of five new lifts and a scissor staircase, in the 17-storey building. Hot on the heels of the triumphant July opening, I was treated to a staycation at the new Crowne Plaza Christchurch. Suitably, the sparkling new

hotel hasn’t sought to replicate its previous incarnation, opting instead to chart a fresh course of striking distinction. And as you enter the main entrance, what really stands out is the all-embracing sense that you’ve entered a brand new building. A proud sense of heritage and place radiates throughout the property, which occupies the same site that played host to the city’s first hotel, The Golden Fleece, circa 1851. Cafe 1851, a buzzy deli-style café pays homage to that history, which is open from 7am serving fresh Mojo coffee, pastries and light meals. The headline dining space, Market Place Restaurant, lustily draws its inspiration from Victoria Square’s rich mercantile legacy. Previously called Market Square, this was traditionally Christchurch’s produce mecca and the restaurant staff attire playfully echoes that past, with their blue checked shirts, bow ties, braces and cloth caps. Dinner menus are presented on rustic brown paper, compartmentalised into produce sections.

intimate hotel ethos makes this property feel positively boutique. Being a new generation Crowne Plaza, every conceivable creature comfort has been considered. Enjoy unlimited free WiFi and Samsung Smart TVs that are equipped Bluetooth connectivity and wireless mobile device mirroring. Several USB ports throughout the room will keep your tech toys recharged. Cocooned in plush and luxurious bedding, I enjoyed a cloudcomfortable night’s sleep in my “zen-like” room. You’ve got an extensive pillow menu at your disposal, plus an extra-nice touch is the complimentary Elemis Room Mist, a sleep-inducing therapy you can spray on your pillow. Guestrooms are furnished in warm and earthy hues, with eyecatching photography celebrating the Mainland. But the piece de resistance are the panoramic views, across the ever-evolving city. To be honest, the prospect of sizing up the city’s revitalisation from this lofty perch, was what I was looking

Most of the dishes are designed as share plates, but there are standalone options, too. You can pick and choose from the respective dining sections – the fishmonger, the butcher, the vege patch, the cheesemonger and the patisserie. Exquisitely showcasing the finest local and hand-picked produce the city and region has to offer, I heartily grazed from a variety of dishes. My top picks would be the cider braised pork belly, apple and pear chutney, coconut poached Akaroa salmon fillet, and the spectacularly drool-worthy leak walnut and blue cheese crumble. You’ll be demanding the recipe. Another sublime space, wrapped around a welcoming fireplace, is the Social. This convivial lounge setting, adjacent to the lobby, is an ultra-comfy sophisticated wine bar, with scrumptious platters, striking the perfect blend of swish surrounds and a relaxed ambience. Boasting 204 guestrooms, the new Crowne Plaza is the city centre’s largest upscale hotel. In spite of its size, the personable and

forward to the most. After all, the new Crowne Plaza is one of the city’s tallest towers, and its located right in the heart of the rebuild action, with an incomparable ring-side view on the city’s regeneration. FAST FACTS •If you want a Cathedral Square view, request a south-facing room, accordingly. Beyond the vivid panoramas of the central city’s resurgence, lapping up the expansive views of the serrated peaks of the Southern Alps is another banner attraction. You’ll want a north-facing room for that mountain magic. But whatever roomwith-a-view option floats your boat, beautifully designed banquettestyle seating, flanks the guestroom windows. It’s the ultimate relaxation roost and the cherry on top of the Crowne Plaza’s rousing return to the heart of Christchurch. www.ihg.com

„„ By Ross Kiddie IT WAS a brave move by Honda New Zealand. At the media launch for its new Civic hatchback we, as journalists, were invited to drive the newcomer on the motorsport track at Hampton Downs. That’s not overly significant in itself, it served to prove how capable and competent the new model is. However, at that event but Honda also introduced the new Type R Civic, a 2-litre hot-hatch which was also made available for laps around the track. The comparison between the mainstream Civic and Type R is vast, but the exercise served to prove how all variants of the Civic have developed to the point where they could almost be deemed performance models. And that shows in the line-up, there’s a heavy emphasis on sporty style that should lure younger drivers, as well as the traditional Civic buyer although it is a shape which will polarise the generations. The Civic for 2018 lands here in four hatchback variants which sit beside four existing sedan models. The hatch range starts at $32,900 for the 1.8-litre SX, but the car this evaluation focuses on is a new 1.5-litre turbocharged model – the RS Sport. It sits in the range at $40,900. Just like its sedan stablemates, the Civic hatch has evolved to be the quality, mid-size model you would expect from Honda, it carries the Honda tradition of build quality and high level of fitment that includes a massive amount of safety kit which easily passes the five-star Australasian New Car Assessment Program criteria. Inside, the new Civic fits like an old pair of gloves, it is smart, tidy and amazingly functional. It is also the practical hatchback with uncompromised levels of comfort and occupant space. That’s something Honda does well, the Civic is a genuine family car and will reward buyers with its extensive attention to detail. The controls, the layout of the cockpit and level of kit is worthy of its

HONDA CIVIC RS SPORT: Turbocharged engine.

price and is nothing short of outstanding in its application. Displacing 1498cc the engine is rated by Honda at 127kW and 220Nm. As you would expect from a modern turbocharged unit, its power output is developed low in the rev band at 5500rpm. • Price – Honda Civic RS Sport, $40,900 • Dimensions – Length, 4515mm; width, 1799mm; height, 1421mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, front-wheeldrive, 1498cc, 127kW, 220Nm, continuously variable automatic • Performance – 0-100km/h, 8.5sec • Fuel usage – 6.1l/100km

Take into account, too, that maximum torque is available from 1700rpm all of the way to the point of peak power and you have a seamless flow of power, almost uninterrupted. That’s simply due to the way the boost is provided, modern turbochargers give you the punch you like to feel as a driver but they are also calibrated so that fuel use is not wasted. Honda also claims a 6.1litre per 100km (46mpg) combined cycle average for the RS Sport. I drove the evaluation car quite keenly, so I didn’t get close to that, but at 8l/100km (35mpg) after six days I thought that was quite respectable. For interest’s sake it will return a 5l/100km (56mpg) figure cruising the 100km/h legal limit, with the engine turning over quite lazy at just 1750rpm. The latter figure is significant as well, for it is

at the point of maximum torque, throttle request is instant at that point which is ideal for a quick highway overtake. It delivers with just the right amount of sound out of the twin tailpipes, it isn’t loud but the exhaust throb is audible. I felt I didn’t need to push the RS too quickly into corners during my testing time, the Hampton Downs experience certainly served to prove how agile and nimble the new series is. However, I did tackle my usual straight road loop taking in a couple of quick corners. The spring and damper rates are biased a little towards firm, as a consequence the body stays balanced and controlled over the suspension. The latter is a fully independent type and once again high on quality, the front-strut/rear multiple link system allows for wheel freedom and high on-board comfort levels, the bumps and ruts of Christchurch’s earthquakeshattered roads are well absorbed. Drive is transmitted to the front wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission, there’s a paddle shift system to lock the gearing into seven pre-set steps if the driver so desires. Personally, I didn’t use it a lot simply because the drive system management protocols adapt sensibly for all types of driving styles. I’m due for a drive on my local patch in the Type R soon. I’m certainly looking forward to that, but I’m also hoping I’ll get a drive in the entrylevel car, as a step into the series it is a worthy purchase.

„„ By Gordon Findlater THE DEPTH of the Christchurch Boys’ High School factory will be tested by a once in a generation Timaru Boys’ High School side in the UC Championship final on Saturday. There is no doubting the strength of CBHS all around the park. Meanwhile, TBHS will look to harness their strength up front, which includes forwards Thomas Edwards, Melvin Pauni, Cullen Grace, Finlay Joyce, Maka Mafelio, who were part of the Crusaders under-18 side earlier this year. CBHS, the defending champions, will host TBHS at their home ground at Straven Rd after Rugby Park was made unavailable. “It’s a pretty unique opportunity. Everyone, from the boys who will be playing to the boys

who are at school here, are really excited,” said CBHS backs coach Rob Smith. For TBHS, it will be their first ever UC Championship final appearance. A strong contingent is expected to make the two-hour

trip north. “We had old boys right back from the 1950s at the semi-final and there will probably be even more this week,” said TBHS coach Gavin Miller. “There’s only 27,000 people in

Timaru so there’s been a lot of interest and positive comments.” This year’s CBHS team has created a reputation for making great escapes. At the weekend’s semi-final, they trailed Nelson College 12-29 but in the second half CBHS turned on the afterburners to romp home 40-36. Earlier in the year, a try on the final whistle from Rico Syme and conversion from Alex Harford secured a remarkable 25-23 win over St Andrew’s College. Harford also came to the rescue against Nelson in their round-robin match in June, nailing a penalty in the final minutes to see CBHS home

13-11. “That’s a real testament to the character of the team, but also our depth. It’s our fresh legs coming off the bench. From one to 22, we’ve got guys that can break the game and are happy to step in wherever needed,” said Smith. After an improved effort in 2016, which saw them win the Moascar Cup for the first time, TBHS have stepped into the role of a serious contender this season. “We’ve got five guys who are in their third year with the team . . . it just helps give the team a lot of confidence that they can mix it with the stronger teams,” said Miller. The two teams met previously this season in Timaru in May, when CBHS produced a strong second half performance to win 22-17. •Kick off at noon.

at risk

Johnson returns for Warriors ahead of schedule „„ By Michael Burgess SHAUN JOHNSON is back – but is it a risk? The Warriors halfback has been named to return for Sunday’s match against Manly slightly ahead of schedule after being sidelined with a knee injury. It’s been 40 days since he tore his posterior cruciate ligament during the round 19 loss to Penrith at Mt Smart and, at

the time, it seemed unlikely he would feature again this season. But coach Stephen Kearney has continually maintained that Johnson was making solid steps in his recovery, and those beliefs have turned out to be correct. But it seems a risk to bring him back, especially with nothing to play for. The Warriors aren’t involved in a end of season relegation scrap – like you see in football – and their finals hopes evaporated

weeks ago. What is surely much more important is the upcoming World Cup and then the 2018 NRL season, but it’s a measure of the desperate plight the Warriors find themselves in that sees Johnson back in the No 7 jersey. More than anything, Warriors need a victory. Firstly to restore a degree of belief and self confidence, and also to avoid the possibility of a nine-match losing

streak (if they don’t win another game in 2017), which would be a record within a single season. They are spiralling towards the bottom of the ladder, which – no matter how you spin it – would be a disaster given the hope at the start of the season. Johnson has no doubt passed all manner of medical tests and fitness tests, but matches are a whole different matter, especially with the unforgiving physical nature of the NRL.

The garage is one of the few places in the house that buyers won’t be put off by a little extra stuff, but the more that can be hidden away in stacked crates the better.

Another clever idea, is to buy a cheap set of melamine shelves for use in your wardrobe. A set of shelves does much the same job as an expensive wardrobe fit out. You can move the shelf heights to accommodate shoes and boots. It looks good, but costs little.

Finally, if you’re looking for more inspiration Google “storage ideas”, search the same on Pinterest, or check out books on the subject from your local library. You’ll be amazed at how many everyday items can be repurposed for storage at the same time as adding design excellence to your home.

The Star has some fantastic cost-effective packages available for people selling their property themselves.

Another wardrobe organisation is a Wardrobe Starter Kit from Hardware stores. While you’re there, check out bicycle storage hooks as well. As well as being practical, storage products can make a design statement. The important thing is to be consistent. don’t, for example, buy storage cubes in different colours. If you’re looking for really clever home storage ideas take a tip from the tiny home movement.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll know that getting rid of clutter is one of the keys to selling property fast and at a good price. Good storage systems can look cool in their own right, and help organise your clutter. Good storage ideas are abundant and all manner of products are available to make homes more minimalistic. While it’s nice to buy your storage from designer homewares stores, the likes of The Warehouse and Kmart sell many simple products for masking clutter. Fabric storage cubes are a great start for disguising the clutter. They fit neatly into shelves and wardrobes and thanks to competition from the big department stores, can cost $10 or less each. You’ll also find wicker, felt, cotton, woven and metal baskets for a song.

Different outlook and fresh approach THE Cashmere Club has appointed a new Club Manager, Donna Hughes. “After a very thorough recruitment process I am pleased to advise that the Board of the Cashmere Club has approved the appointment of Donna Hughes as our new General Manager,” said Pete Winchester, Board Chairman. “Donna comes to the Club with an extensive background in hospitality, with experience in senior management positions in Customer Services and most recently at the executive level in Marketing and Loyalty management. As far as I am aware this is the first time we have ever had a woman take up the role of General Manager of our club. It will no doubt provide a different outlook and fresh approach to what we want to achieve in the future.”
