„„ By Andrew King POLICE HAVE launched an investigation into the credentials of a man claiming to be a medic who assisted a rugby player with a suspected neck injury. The man, who was wearing a shirt that made him appear to be a medic was called onto the field in a colts match between Christchurch and Lincoln University on July 8 when a player suffered what was thought to be at the time a serious neck injury. He fitted the player with a neck brace and administered an unknown medicine. The Canterbury Rugby Football Union has alerted clubs and schools about the incident, warning them to be vigilant of a man impersonating a medic at rugby games. “Our understanding was that this individual was wearing a uniform and driving a vehicle that resembled a firstaid officer,” spokeswoman Chantelle Te Haara said yesterday. “We have not received any reports from clubs or schools regarding any further incidents since this communication was sent.” •Turn to page 9

GERRY BROWNLEE has never been one to take a backward step in the political arena. And yesterday he was confronted with a fairly hostile audience at a Christchurch Central debate involving Labour candidate Duncan Webb, the Greens Peter Richardson and Opportunities Douglas Hill. By all accounts he handled it well. But the sign hanging in the Ara Institute of Canterbury atrium said it all – Where’s Wagner? Yes, why wasn’t Wagner fronting the debate for National? The question had been asked on Tuesday, with a number of nonspecific reasons given. But, by yesterday afternoon, her office had seen the light and revealed she was on Banks Peninsula in her role as associate conservation minister. Wagner should have been at the political debate yesterday. She had a great opportunity to stand up and withstand the barrage of EQC, Southern Response, climate change, and tenancy reform questions people fired at Brownlee. – Barry Clarke

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

EMERGENCY CALLS ONLY

This week in history saw a visit by the Deputy Prime Minister of Hungary, Dr Juzet Marjai, on August 27, 1986. On August 28, 1890, the great maritime strike (the first of New Zealand’s three major waterfront strikes) spread to Lyttelton. On August 31, 1959, The Princess Margaret Hospital was opened. On August 31, 1974, Prime Minister Norman Kirk (right), MP for Sydenham, died. He had earlier been MP for Lyttelton, and Mayor of Kaiapoi. On September 1, 1888, an earthquake caused damage throughout city. The Cathedral spire was badly damaged. On September 1, 1906, the first Timaru to Christchurch cycle race took place. On September 1, 1924, the new city council offices in Manchester St were opened. On September 1, 1940, a New Zealand Railways railcar set a speed record of 125km/h (78mph) near Rolleston. This is still the highest speed officially acknowledged on the New Zealand rail system.

Canterbury police had to urge Game of Thrones fans not to dial 111 to ask questions about Monday’s season finale. A light-hearted post on its Facebook page on Monday morning said not to phone about the show. A police spokeswoman said they received a number of calls that were not in police jurisdiction. Examples included someone phoning to complain there was a fly in their chicken, another phoned to report they had found a snail in their fridge, and one person wanted to know how to roast a chicken. She said people should only use 111 for genuine emergencies.

WITNESSES QUESTIONED Police have not yet decided if charges will be laid over an on-field altercation between two young rugby players at a match last month. Senior Sergeant Peter Stills said police were still questioning witnesses about what happened during the altercation between a West Melton player and a Lincoln player during a match on July 8. He said the investigation had been hampered by witnesses who were “reluctant to talk” to police. West Melton under-14.5s coach Amanda Tomlinson has already been charged with assaulting the Lincoln player after the match.

Canterbury University political scientist Bronwyn Hayward said Christchurch Central is a symbolic battle. “It’s been such a highly contested seat. Nicky Wagner fought really hard to get it from Labour, and Labour is working very hard to get it back.” Ms Wagner made two

Having Gerry here shows the National Party acknowledged that.” The candidates responded to questions about whether they supported a Royal Commission of Inquiry into EQC, Southern Response, tenancy reform, health funding, climate change, assisted dying, transgender surgery and Environment Canterbury, among others. Mr Webb was asked how Labour was going to pay for its policies and proposals. He said Labour had “done the numbers” based on the preelection fiscal report, and would “balance the budget”. Mr Brownlee said it would have to come from the taxpayer. At one point he also said: “As far as I’m concerned, EQC has been a roaring success.” His comment was met with disdain from the majority of the crowd, and the other candidates. •Turn to page 11

Neighbours still feuding „„ By Andrew King AN ONGOING feud between two neighbours has led to another of the combatants appearing in court. Simon Bernard Charles Bates is facing a wilful damage charge after allegedly damaging his elderly neighbour’s front door with an aluminium rake. Mr Bates told The Star yesterday he would be defending the charge. “I just want to deal with the court stuff and move on with my life.” In June, The Star revealed the bitter dispute between Mr Bates and his 76-yearold neighbour Margaret Sutton over their shared driveway in Memorial Ave, Burnside. Mrs Sutton was found guilty of wilful damage of a vehicle in Mr Bates’ driveway. She was discharged without conviction and ordered to pay Mr Bates compensation on June 2. Now Mr Bates is before the courts after police became involved after the rake incident. His next court appearance is in early October. Yesterday, Mr Bates told The Star he had used a rake to reach the door to knock on it. The trespass order means he is unable to go up to the door, so he stayed on what he believed was his part of the shared driveway. He wanted to complain to Mrs Sutton about stakes on the driveway. The incident happened about 9pm on July 1. Mr Bates said yesterday a police claim he had been

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

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

Mrs Sutton has claimed dog poo has been thrown on her property and her garden deliberately flooded with a sprinkler. After Mrs Sutton was found guilty of wilful damage in June, Mr Bates put up a sign on his garage facing into her property which said ‘Guilty’. It was taken down after The Star reported on it. Mrs Sutton could not be contacted for comment.

cipal’s Association president Margaret Trotter said the wait times for appointments put some families off asking for help at all. “We’re seeing extreme cases being picked up, but the other children, who would have been picked up in the past, face either a long delay or their cases are judged not serious enough to be seen,” she said. Schools told her the numbers of young children who were stressed or had behavioural issues were still growing, she said. The CDHB currently has 75 staff working in Child & Family mental health services. Seven full-time staff work on its school mental health team, covering 136 schools across Canterbury. Arahura Centre counsellor Kim Lingley said she was also seeing growing demand for child counselling services. She said it had been predicted by international studies looking at what happened after disasters. “Even six or seven years after the earthquakes there are still a lot of issues around unsettledness,” she said. Because of the demand on services, she said the cases they were seeing were more extreme.

BY THE NUMBERS Average wait times for CDHB mental health services: Children (0-12): 28 days for a first appointment, then 150 days for a specialist appointment Teens (13-18): 18 days for a first appointment, then 68 days for a specialist appointment Adults: Four days for a first appointment, then four days for a specialist appointment Canterbury’s suicide numbers: January to June this year: 51 people took their own lives 2016: 75 people took their own lives 2015: 72 people took their own lives

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart A GROUP fighting to save The Princess Margaret Hospital from possible demolition has taken the battle right to the top – writing to Queen Elizabeth to ask for her support. The Save PMH group has been campaigning to have the hospital buildings kept open, and wants community health services to be based there. A decision about the future of the site has not yet been made, as Canterbury District Health Board mental health services are still based there. Save PMH chairman Lee Sampson said the group wrote to the queen to get more “public accountability” around

the future of the hospital. He was concerned a decision would be made behind closed doors, without other options for the site being explored. The letter asked for the queen’s support, mentioning her visit to the hospital in 1977 as part of her Jubilee Tour, and that the hospital was named after her sister, Princess Margaret. The letter said: “NZ is still a young nation and Christchurch has already lost so much heritage fabric over the last six to seven years through the earthquakes, therefore

we would be extremely grateful of your support in asking the CDHB to at least explore other options for TPMH buildings and services prior to them sending in the wrecking ball and our community losing this jewel in our crown forever.” Some of the buildings at the hospital had structural damage from the earthquakes, while others only needed cosmetic repairs. The building ratings range from less than 15 per cent of the New Building Standard to 100 per cent.

Police Govt accused of rushing decision probe rugby ‘medic’ „„ By Gabrielle Stuart HEALTH BOARD members have accused the Government of rushing a decision on the future of services at The Princess Margaret Hospital, in order to announce it before the election. An emergency meeting of Canterbury District Health Board members was called this month to approve a plan to relocate the last mental health services still based at the hospital. CDHB members say the business case was put to them at about 9am on August 11, and they were asked to approve it by noon that day. Board member Anna Crighton, who has served three terms on the board, said she had never seen a significant decision “rushed through” so fast. When asked if she believed a decision was rushed because of the election, she said “the process alone would indicate that.” A decision on the future of the services is expected before the election on September 23. The CDHB has refused to release the report or the decision made at the meeting, as it was “public excluded”. That was so the

Anna Crighton

CDHB could “carry on without prejudice or disadvantage, negotiations”, a spokeswoman said. Dr Crighton said she “not happy” with the process, but agreed to have the meeting because she was concerned about the future for vulnerable patients if the service was kept at the hospital. Most CDHB services based at the The Princess Margaret Hospital were moved to Burwood Hospital in June last year. In November last year, the CDHB put a business case to the Ministry of Health outlining a plan to move the mental health services, but it was not approved. Fellow board member Jo Kane said she was “furious” about the way the process had been

handled. Board member Andrew Dickerson said he would not give a view on whether or not the process was “politically motivated”, but said he was deeply concerned about it. But board member David Morrell disagreed, saying the board had previously done a lot of background work on the issue, so he was comfortable with the way it was handled. When The Star asked Health Minister Jonathan Coleman for his response yesterday, he replied that “given it’s election time I’m unsurprised by these comments.” He has previously described Ms Kane as “anti-government”,

Andrew Dickerson

after she called him “lazy” in an interview. Dr Coleman did not answer questions from The Star yesterday about whether he was involved in setting the deadline for the decision, and whether he planned to make an announcement about it before the election. Ministry of Health DHB funding and planning chief adviser John Hazeldine said the initial indicative business case could not be progressed because it “did not cover all the information required,” including a funding source. He said the current facilities at the hospital were “highly unsatisfactory”, and the ministry was progressing the process as quickly as possible.

•From page 1 Senior Sergeant Stephan McDaniel declined to give specifics of the investigation to The Star. He said it wasn’t an offence to impersonate a medic, but administrating medicine was if the person was not qualified to Stephan do so. McDaniel “We won’t comment further until we have completed the investigation,” he said. Christchurch business development manager Tim Murdoch said both teams thought he was the others medic and when the “penny dropped” they asked who he was. Lincoln’s Peter Magson said it was a police matter and he could not comment.

Permanent liquor ban plan for streets Chch

„„ By Bridget Rutherford A PERMANENT alcohol ban could be put in place on the streets around AMI Stadium and Horncastle Arena. Vbase catering general manager Mark Bodman said people drinking in the car parks and on the streets near both venues before going into events was a problem. “This leads, on occasion, to guests either being refused entry for being intoxicated or being allowed access Mark Bodman as the signs of intoxication may not become necessarily observable until 15 to 30min after consuming alcohol and, by the time the signs are evident, they have then entered the licensed premises.” He said currently Vbase was unable to stop people drinking in those areas. “Issues we have experienced includes assault of Vbase staff and members of the public, public nuisance, littering and lewd behaviour.” He said there had been one incident of assault in the past

Central debate heats up

PLAN: Vbase, which runs Horncastle Arena and AMI Stadium, wants a permanent alcohol ban in Addington to help run events smoothly.

year, on July 14 last year, where a Vbase security guard was assaulted, and so was a staff member. It happened during a Broods concert at Horncastle. “The staff member suffered minor wounds and was treated by medical personnel. The patron was evicted and trespassed, and subsequently arrested.” Mr Bodman said they wanted the ban to cover the same area as the temporary ban during New Zealand Trotting Cup Day,

which is bordered by Lincoln Rd, Moorhouse Ave, Blenheim Rd, Matipo St and Wrights Rd. The city council is investigating the idea. City council acting head of strategic policy Gavin Thomas said the community governance team would now do a preliminary analysis into whether the ban would be appropriate. He said an alcohol ban would be a “last resort” to address a proven and significant public order issue.

Christchurch alcohol harm reduction manager Senior Sergeant Gordon Spite said police were supportive of the proposed alcohol ban. He said the temporary ban in place on cup day was effective in reducing alcohol harm, and rules would be easier to understand if it was permanent. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think an alcohol ban should be put in place in Addington? Email bridget.rutherford@starmedia.kiwi

•From page 4 He was left defending Government policies and decisions. He was the most unpopular candidate by far – and he knew it. Ara student Danielle Johnstone, who lives in Mr Brownlee’s Ilam electorate, asked why he did not attend a candidate debate last Wednesday, or send a representative. Mr Brownlee said he preferred to hold street corner meetings to avoid the “verbal jousting” he received at yesterday’s event. “If you look at this audience today and you looked at the applause that was given at the start for the various candidates here, it’s pretty clear that what candidates do at those meetings is bring along their own supporters to make sure they get a good hearing.”

Korako forced to move mobile billboard or face being towed „„ By Bridget Rutherford ELECTION candidates are continuing to break the rules with the placement of their billboards. National’s Port Hills candidate Nuk Korako had to move one of his mobile election billboards after it was parked on a grass verge without permission. The billboard, which sits on a trailer with the list MP’s face and slogan on it, was parked on New Zealand Transport Agency land near the intersection of Halswell Rd and Aidanfield Drive on Tuesday morning. Metres from the trailer was a sign that read: “Unauthorised

advertising and vehicles being offered for sale will be removed at the owners expense 24 hours seven days”. Mr Korako said NZTA contacted his office on Tuesday asking for the sign to be moved. “I apologised profusely on behalf of the team.” He said he thought it had been parked “on the wrong side of the road”. NZTA senior traffic safety engineer David Scarlet said no permission was sought and staff asked for it to be removed. “The vehicle and trailer was removed on Tuesday afternoon

shortly after getting a call from the transport agency,” Mr Scarlet said. Last month, Mr Korako’s campaign team nailed one of his billboards directly over Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson’s sign on the corner of Centaurus and St Martins Rds. Both said they had permission to put their billboards on the fence. Mr Korako said Ms Dyson put hers up before it was allowed under the rules, but she denied that was the case. In May, Labour’s Christchurch Central candidate Duncan Webb and Mr Korako were told to take down their election signs because they were too big.

News Fooling about leads to shocks

„„ By Julia Evans TOMFOOLERY put three high school students in hospital after they received electric shocks. The Hillmorton High School students were taken to Christchurch Hospital on Tuesday after receiving the shocks during a woodwork class. The students were back in class by Wednesday morning. School staff called an ambulance after the trio showed up at the sick bay reporting their injuries. St John arrived at the school, on Tankerville Rd, at about 12.14pm on Tuesday. Principal Ann Brokenshire said although the boys were able to walk, the school did not “muck around” considering the nature of the incident. Ms Brokenshire said the incident was caused by “tomfoolery” from the students. “This is what happens when you fool around with a cord in a socket,” she said. Ms Brokenshire said the school will be talking with the boys about their actions.

Parking wardens report more assaults „„ By Bridget Rutherford THE NUMBER of assaults and abuse being reported by the city’s parking wardens has increased in the past year, in spite of them being given body cameras to wear. But the city council says the new technology has encouraged staff to report incidents more, because the footage provided reliable evidence. The 21 parking wardens were given the body-mounted cameras in April last year. They can be activated if staff think their safety is at risk. City council transport operations manager Aaron Haymes said there had been 36 reported incidents since they were introduced – 12 of which were physical assaults. In the 15 months prior, there were 19 reported. “Our experience has shown that the body-worn cameras have increased safety for our staff by lessening the seriousness of incidents and discouraging undesirable behaviour.” He said previously a number of incidents went under the radar, but the cameras now provided reliable evidence. “This means it’s more likely

BY THE NUMBERS Number of reported incidents since April 2016: 12 assaults 12 verbal abuse 7 camera activations 5 threats Outcome of incidents: 15 not reported to police 7 convictions 7 police warnings 2 awaiting outcome The remaining were either reported to police, police were unable to locate the offender, staff received an apology, or a restorative justice meeting was held. DETERRENT: City council parking compliance officer Luke Lee holds one of the body-mounted cameras that are aimed at deterring assaults and abuse. PHOTO: CCC/NEWSLINE

that somebody will be held to account for their actions, and that encourages staff to report.” Mr Haymes said surprisingly, most assaults on staff were carried out by people who had no connection to the issuing of an infringement. Staff activated their cameras seven times, which appeared to deter abuse or violent behaviour.

Mr Haymes said the city council was always working on initiatives that reduced the risk of staff being harmed. “We want to make sure our staff make it through their work day safely and get to go home at the end of each day to their families.”

Godfather shaped surfboard industry

Surfboard-maker Denis Quane’s trailblazing career will be celebrated in an exhibition next year as part of the Duke Festival of Surfing. He spoke to Sarla Donovan THE GODFATHER of New Zealand surfboard-making doesn’t have a board of his own. Denis Quane sold his last one 18 months ago and since then he and wife Chris have been busy shifting back into their rebuilt house on Moncks Spur. Out for six years after the February 22, 2011, earthquake, the Quanes are relieved to finally be home after shifting around half a dozen places, from Clifton Hill to Cashmere and even out to Rolleston. Normally he’d be out surfing come summertime, as a longtime member and patron of the Sumner Longboarders Club. But this summer, Mr Quane, 75, might need to take some time off. Not only does he need to make himself a board, he’s also due to go in for surgery after ripping a tendon in his shoulder, slipping on icy ground at the Mt Hutt skifield car park. Mr Quane has spent a lifetime shaping and making surfboards, and now there’s to be an exhibition celebrating his work early next year. It’s part of the Duke Festival of Surfing, the biggest surfing festival in the country, held in New Brighton for the past three years. “I think it’s fantastic,” Mr Quane says. “Judging by the number of people who came to last year’s event, there’s a lot of interest in this sort of thing.” Exhibition organiser Simon Allard says what’s unique about Quane Surfboards is they were made by a trailblazer. “He led the charge in introducing modern boards to New Zealand and the Pacific. He was a real pioneer.” As a teenager, he worked

for Mr Quane, describing him as a “quiet and unassuming fellow with a passion for the sea.” It was the 1950s when Mr Quane started making boards in a shed he built at the back of his parents’ house. “The shed was part of the temporary Sumner Surf Life Saving Club which was down in Clifton Bay. There were two wooden sheds on the old pier by the Beach Cafe. It used to go out about 30-40m and when the original surf club was taken off the middle of Sumner Beach, it was transported down to St Leonards Square for the cricket club. “They then built a couple of wooden sheds on that pier for the surf club. When the new one was built over at the bottom of Clifton Hill, I got permission to demolish one of the sheds and take it away. I took it down piece by piece and rebuilt it in the back of my parents’ place on Nayland St.” Like many early surfers, Mr Quane came to the sport through surf lifesaving, after joining the Sumner club in 1953. “When I was 13, some older guys started fooling around with polystyrene and made a seven foot foam board. I was the only one small enough to ride it, and I just kept riding it through high school.” He went on to design and

build a series of surf skis, race boards and hollow plywood boards. When the orders began pouring in, he quit his job with a stock and station company and started Quane Surfboards. Operations shifted from the garden shed to a shop opposite the Hollywood Theatre, next to the butcher and the fish and chip shop. A shift to Redcliffs followed, into what’s now the Menz Shed, before moving into general fibreglass work with Quane Industries in Maces Rd. The fibreglass operation (things like freezing works tubs and garden ponds) came about following a downturn in the mid70s. Shortboards came in and a lot of the older surfers couldn’t ride them – “most longboards got tucked away.” Dope-smoking became widespread, imported Japanese motor-cycles were coming into the country and people who had surfed started going into the back-country, leaving surfing and going biking instead. “It became uncool to be a surfer at that stage. You could go down to Sumner at the weekend, there might be four or five people there.” He kept making boards on and off throughout the downturn though, and eventually surfing took off again in the early 80s. A few years later, Mr Quane opened his first retail shop, Surf Dive and Ski on High St. When it became a one-way street, he shifted to Oxford Tce, then Colombo St and later combined with Snowline Sports to open Snow and Surf in Tuam St. After nearly 60 years of making and shaping boards he still has a shaping bay in Ferrymead, working up to a

dozen boards a year before sending them to a factory in Woolston for finishing. Special orders only though. A Quane board will set you back around $2000, while an overseas-made one might retail for about $1500. The planned exhibition will feature the third board he made, a hollow plywood. He’s got no idea where the first one might be, or even if it’s still around. “We used to have agents all over the country so I don’t know where they all went,” he said. “We sent a couple over to the

Channel Islands at one stage and a shipment of about 30 to Venezuela. They pop up all over the place. There’s still a lot around we made in the 1960s. It depends on how they’re used, how long they last.” For the exhibition, Mr Allard is hoping to get 150 Quane surfboards altogether. He currently has about 70. •If you have a Quane surfboard tucked away which you would be willing to lend for the exhibition, get in touch with Simon Allard on 021 668 347

‘Flying in formation’ under ChristchurchNZ IF YOU’VE ever been to an air show and watched in awe at the precision of a group of aircraft ‘flying in formation’, you will not be surprised to find out that it requires discipline, synchronised action and a predetermination that can only come from the combination of a highly-trained team and excellent communication. And the results are awe-inspiring. The establishment of ChristchurchNZ may not be as spectacular as an air show,

tions, another promoting international education and, finally, the city council promoting major events, without the strategic approach our Visitor Strategy demands, has meant we have not been flying in formation. The name ChristchurchNZ is designed to emphasise Christchurch as a destination and as the international gateway to Canterbury and the South Island of New Zealand. Our link to Antarctica is also a vital part of our story, dating back to the heroic age of explorers and now representing cutting-edge research and science, which will help us understand the climate challenges we face. A separate tagline can emphasise each component of what we do including, where appropriate, the wider region of Canterbury, which is as vital to our city as it ever was. The productivity of the Canterbury Plains is enormously important, but even more so is the capacity to add value to what we grow.

The time for bringing our economic development capacity together with tourism, major events and international education is now. By flying in formation, the benefits to the city will be significantly greater. Each will be strengthened by working in the same team. The rebuild market will cool and we need to be prepared. At the same time, we must face the challenges of an ageing population. In the next decade, the millennials will outnumber the baby-boomers. As they take their rightful place as leaders nationally and locally, we will see a significant change in terms of expectations, aspirations and dreams. We must keep our sights firmly focused on the future and flying in formation is the way to go. •If you want to ask Ms Dalziel a question, email mayor@ccc.govt.nz. Put Reader’s Question in the subject line

Cathedral decision time SEPTEMBER is an important month for Christchurch. Yes, there’s a general election, but there’s also another vote taking place that will determine the future direction of our central city. Next week, Christ Church Cathedral’s Synod – 225 members of the Anglican diocese – will consider the Government’s offer to support reinstatement alongside two other options – a contemporary new build or gifting the Cathedral to the people of Christchurch and New Zealand. The Government offer includes $48.7 million from the Government, city council and Great Christchurch Building Trust. With the church’s insurance proceeds of $42 million, total funding reaches $90.7 million – enough to complete the Cathedral and ancillary buildings. As Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration, I believe this option is our best shot at moving forward as it balances the needs of the church with those of the people of Christchurch and wider Canterbury. But, as mentioned, it’s not the only option on the table. Bishop Victoria Matthews and I have

Nicky Wagner met regularly over the past few months and, as a courtesy, she let me know a third option — gifting the Cathedral — would also be presented at Synod. I’ve always said an agreed decision is absolutely vital and that’s what we’ll continue to work toward, but this option shows the church is thinking innovatively about the Cathedral’s future. While we wait for a decision on the Cathedral itself, plans to reshape the Square are under way. A draft concept, released by Regenerate Christchurch, proposes creating three lively gathering places, each with their own character and purpose, within a greener setting. It would be wonderful to see the Square return to being the bustling heart of our city, as it was in its heyday. I look forward to a decision by Synod next week — it’s time. •Nicky Wagner is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration •More Viewpoint, p19

Local News Now

Viewpoint Leading New Zealand architect Michael O’Sullivan, who is heavily involved in the rebuild, has described the central city’s proposed 25,000-seat stadium as “ungenerous and short-sighted”. He said it should be built in the Port of Lyttelton instead

myriad of issues is imperative in bolstering community involvement within council decision-making. Through mail box drops, social media, public meetings and online submissions, various items inclusive of financial and prioritised data presently enables the public sector the opportunity to air their views over these often contentious issues. It is ludicrous that many opposing the council’s protocol on public consultation are often the same brigade accusing the city council of bureaucratic attitudes  regarding decision-making devoid of public feedback. Within this context, consultation on any issue within city council criteria is essential for all our populace. Famous Grouse Whisky 1 Litre

Cathryn Lucy – Lyttelton residents don’t need all the drunks there and transport would be a nightmare and probably be dangerous with more people driving under the influence as taxis are expensive and parking limited. The noise would echo around the hills like crazy too. What a ridiculous idea. Wayne Steele – Auckland-based architect pretty much sums it up. Imagine the tunnel with 50,000 people in Lyttelton. Jonathan D. A. Ross – Only if they rebuild the Lyttelton Railway station and a make good connections with Christchurch suburbs and satellite towns. Having just road connections would make it unfeasible. Roy Lewis – Dumb idea – if you want a waterfront stadium then build it in Brighton . . . that way moving 50,000 people becomes a whole lot easier. Bethany Grace – The whole idea of spending this amount of money on a stadium in Christchurch is absurd. There is so much we could do with that money. Pauline Berendt – Interesting but not likely. Silliest idea I ever heard. Access is an issue. Would the Lyttelton locals like it – I think not. Car parking for how many cars? Nowhere near enough I’d guess, knowing how big that area is. Light rail – may be helpful but how do you get from the rail hub to the stadium? Readers respond to The Star article asking why the city council undertakes consultation for almost everything it does from the colour of hydroslides to no-stopping restrictions and tree removals Gary Knight – In spite of parochial views by many the present consultation process by the city council relating to a

Fire rage s, homes

Jo Zervos – Dave East is so right on saying the system needs an overhaul. As spokeswoman for the Keep QEII in the East group we underwent several processes of consultations most which obviously had pre-determined outcomes and lacked options. Lea Koning – Well you would hope to stop them building stupid, ugly things like the hydroslide over the airport entrance road. A complete waste of money. Scotty Ogilvie – An excuse to pay consultants. Maybe I should be a consultant . . . I could consult on common sense. Huntaway Reserve

Lee Purves – This article loses sight of the fact that both the Wellington and Dunedin stadiums are walking distance to the city centre and sources of public transport in all directions. Lyttelton is nowhere near the city centre and would not have the infrastructure to cope with sudden influxes of 30,000+ people . . . with only one way of getting out. Ian Johnson – Relocate the tank farm – yeah right. Build on reclaimed contaminated land – what a joke. Not to mention a $500 million major asset subject to sea level rise – no foresight at all. The Town Planners through Share an Idea had good reason why the stadium is located in the CBD close to bars and accommodation.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY... CHICKEN THIGHS WITH FRESH EGG NOODLES Ingredients

BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH ROASTED GARLIC AND PINENUTS Ingredients 1 head Garlic 20 small Brussels sprouts 1 Tbsp Olive oil 1 Tbsp Walnut oil ½ cup Pine nuts ½ cup Currants Directions Preheat oven to 200 deg C. Remove the outer layers of

papery skin from the head of garlic. Slice just enough off the head to expose the garlic cloves, then season and wrap in tinfoil. Bake for 30min, then cool and squeeze the flesh out of the skins. Meanwhile, toss the sprouts in walnut and olive oil. Season and place in a roasting dish, cook for 15min, then add the pinenuts and currants. Return to the oven for a further 5min. Pile the sprouts, pinenuts and currants on to a serving dish, drizzle with oil leftover in the pan and top with garlic.

8 Boneless chicken thighs, skinned 1 Tbsp Light soy sauce 1 Tbsp Dry sherry 2 tsp Cornflour 2 Tbsp Peanut oil 1 bunch Spring onion, trimmed and sliced 1 stalk Lemongrass, white part only, finely chopped 1 Red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped 500g Egg noodles, use fresh noodles To finish 1 splash Fish sauce 1 Lime, or lemon, juiced 1 handful Fresh basil Directions Cut each chicken thigh into four pieces and place in a bowl with the soy sauce, sherry and cornflour. Mix to combine and set aside while you prepare the remaining ingredients. Heat one Tbsp of the peanut oil

in a large deep-sided frying pan or wok over a medium-high heat. Add half of the chicken pieces and cook on both sides until browned and almost cooked through, about 5min. Transfer to a plate, add remaining peanut oil and cook remaining chicken pieces. Return all chicken pieces to the pan or wok.

Add the spring onions, lemongrass, chilli and noodles and continue to cook, stirring continuously until the chicken is cooked through, about 3min. Stir in the fish sauce, lime or lemon juice and basil leaves and divide between four warmed bowls.

Even though technology is the core of the programme, in reality, it is used as a vehicle to enhance intergenerational relationships and to stimulate learning and dialogue, which may result in better communication, understanding and co-operation. The high school students that deliver the programme freely volunteer their time, and can answer many questions or doubts, including:

Young people born in the age of digital technology, and known as digital natives, can navigate most aspects of it with ease, as they have an innate understanding of how it works. But for people who are “digital immigrants” and have to learn how to use it so they can enjoy the benefits, they might find it takes a bit of practice and perseverance before they feel comfortable using it. Technology is not particularly intuitive.

Putting Amberley on the map

Margot Korhonen, left, Claire Inkson and Trish Coleman at the launch of AmberleyNZ

A group of 37 Amberley business owners have joined forces to launch AmberleyNZ, a new promotional strategy that highlights the wide range of eateries, attractions, boutique retail, experiences and accommodation that Amberley has to offer. They were inspired by the fact that business is booming in Amberley, with 12 new small businesses having set up shop in the town over the last two years. Although Amberley has suffered hardship following years of ongoing droughts and the devastating November 2016 earthquake that impacted the flow of north-bound traffic through the town, these Amberley business owners are determined to build on the unique vibe of their town and cement its reputation as a memorable destination. The project was the brainchild of Trish Coleman, owner of Mumma T’s Trading Lounge, who approached local designer Margot Korhonen from Spruce Design + Marketing to put together a map showcasing all the exciting places to visit in Amberley. Claire Inkson from Claire Inkson Photography then introduced the idea of expanding the project to include more retailers. The motivated trio developed the project scope to promote Amberley, as well as supporting the entire North Canterbury region. The final step in the process was approaching other business owners, who welcomed the “wonderful step forward” for their town. AmberleyNZ was launched in late July at the popular Nor’Wester Café. A Map showcasing all that Amberley and

the wider region has to offer is available from a number of retailers, stores and cafes throughout the town. Trish, Margot and Claire hope that the map and the new promotion strategy will encourage visitors to spend more time in Amberley, while uncovering some of its hidden gems.

peaceful and unhurried atmosphere in which to relax and unwind.

Offering much more than just shopping, Amberley’s attractions include sculptures, murals, historic buildings, established parks and playgrounds, stunning beaches and a growing network of walking and cycling trails.

These clinics Previously considered as an ‘ice-cream stop’, Amberley now incorporates a unique boutique and salons use quality products, and provide a shopping experience with plenty of free parking and not a chain store in sight. After exploring the main street, stroll along the side streets to uncover hidden treasures including quirky Kiwiana stores and homeware emporiums filled with everything from Balinese décor to country, modern and vintage-style interior items. Many retailers stock items that showcase the artistic talents of local craftspeople and make ideal gifts. Lovers of fashion are also catered for with two edgy clothing boutiques, along with an iconic clothing store with a cult following built up during two decades of catering for “real women”. When it’s time for a snack or lunch you will find every need catered for, with choices including an authentic French bakery, artisan cafes, fine cuisine and even a craft brewery with wood-fired pizzas.

Looking your best 50-plus and onwards Looking their best is important to women of any age. Forward 50 asks Personal Style Consultant Joanna Giles of Love Your Look how women 50+ can dress to look great and feel confident.

for your current body shape (which often also changes around menopause) and the modern ways to create stunning outfits out of fashion separates.

Depending on individual sizes What advice do you have for and body shapes, what types of women over 50 who want to garments are most flattering dress ‘on trend’ without looking for women in this age group? as if they are trying too hard to I believe every woman is beautiful. Beauty is not a particular size, shape, age or skin or appear young? Women 50+ often mention to me that they are worried about looking like ‘mutton dressed as lamb’, but it is actually a problem I rarely see. My bigger concern is that women sometimes have a tendency to veer too far the other way, and dress too old for their age, ‘mutton dressed as dead.’ To avoid this tendency, remember that Baby Boomers rule the world! Because Baby Boomers are such a large proportion of the population they are re-creating the rules for how women dress at 50, 60, 70 and beyond. Just look at what celebrities like Hallee Berry (50), Michelle Pfeiffer (58), Christie Brinkley (63), Helen Mirren (72) and Judi Dench (82) are wearing and looking absolutely stunning in. To feel confident about dressing well for your age group, choose a celebrity Muse to get ideas of the fashion looks you could try. It is important to stay up to date with fashion and easy to lose your confidence and get left behind. For a confidence boost and to keep up with current fashion trends that will suit you I recommend joining a Style Course to learn which colours suit your eye colour and current hair and skin colour, (these change as we age), which clothing cuts work

hair colour. Any woman, whether a size 6 or 26+, can look great in colours and clothing cuts that highlight her assets and quietly camouflage any problem areas. The first step is learning which colours suit you and which cuts of clothes suit your body shape. The problem is we are all trying to get a tailor-made fit from off-the-rack garments. The secret to getting a great fit is to choose garments that are designed for your body shape. This is based on your build, frame or silhouette. There are three female body shapes, Straight, Curve and Softened Curve, and each has unique assets and problems areas and comes in every size. Straights go ‘straight up and down’ with no waist or hips, but have great shoulders and legs. They feel conscious of weight around the tummy and upper hips (muffin top, spare tyre). Kate Middleton and MP Paula Bennett are Straights. They look great in ‘long lean’ clothing that defines shoulders and legs and bypasses the tummy, e.g. volume in top garments and fitted in trousers and skirts. Curves go ‘all-in-and-out’ and have beautiful curvy waists and upper bodies and a totally

They suit fitted garments on top that cinch in at the waist and suit lots of volume in pants and skirts. Racquel Welch and Jennifer Lopez are Curves. Softened Curves have developed a little tummy after having kids or getting older. They have beautiful upper bodies (especially their décolletage) and suit top garments that have a wider open neckline and soft shaping at the waist. They suit relaxed trousers and skirts that hang straight but have a lot of fabric in them e.g. ‘drape not cling’.

Your eye colour and current hair and skin colour determine what types of colours will suit you. The great news is that everyone can wear every colour, as long as they wear it in the clarity or strength that best suits them – and you don’t need to carry around a colour swatch to get a perfect match. I teach clients this Clarity Based system to help them use colour combinations to elongate their silhouette and make them look taller and slimmer.

Incapacity & the elderly Trustee As a nation, our population is ageing. Alongside this is an increase in the number of people who can no longer continue to manage their own affairs due to mental incapacity. Where the incapacitated person is the Trustee of a family or discretionary trust that can make the administration of the trust, all but impossible.

of the Court …” 1 and, as with s 43 above, only where the incapacitated Trustee is being replaced. The Courts also have an inherent jurisdiction to remove an incapacitated trustee if the Court is satisfied that it is in the interests of the beneficiaries and where “… the continuance of the Trustee would prevent the trusts being properly executed …”2

As most trust deeds require that Trustees act unanimously, if one Trustee is incapacitated, and therefore unable to act or participate in decision making, it will leave the remaining Once the incapacitated Trustee has been Trustees, and the Trust itself, in limbo until removed, any real property owned by the such time as that incapacitated Trustee has trust will need to be transferred into the been removed. names of the new Trustees. The removal of an incapacitated trustee can An Enduring Power of Attorney in relation be effected by: to Property (EPA Property) cannot be used

Transferring the Trust Property

1. Using the Trust Deed Where there is a specific power of appointment held by someone who is alive, and who is not the incapacitated Trustee, they can use that power to remove a Trustee, whether that Trustee is incapacitated or not. This may require having a difficult conversation with an ageing Trustee but will save all parties anxiety, time and money. 2. Section 43 of the Trustee Act 1956 If the Trust Deed is silent as to who holds the power of appointment, or the incapacitated Trustee is the Trustee with the power of appointment, s 43 can be used to remove the incapacitated Trustee but only where that Trustee is being replaced by a new Trustee. 3. Section 51 of the Trustee Act The Court can, under s 51, exercise its power to remove an incapacitated Trustee but only when it is “inexpedient, difficult or impractical to do so without the assistance

end of the spectrum (Deep & Gentle Muted). It’s important to get your colours rechecked at least every six to seven years as we all lose colour in our skin and hair as we age. The clarity you suit will also change when you change your hair colour, so get checked anytime you have a drastic change.

What are the staples that form the basis of a versatile and stylish wardrobe? There are several tricks of the trade for turning a wardrobe full of separates into stunning co-ordinated outfits.You can also use these tricks for packing a small co-ordinated travel wardrobe and as the basis of your shopping list for effectively adding to your current wardrobe this season. 1. The Base: a Base is an all-one-colour look created by wearing a top and bottom in the same colour and then adding a differentcoloured outer layer and a necklace or scarf that references both colours. 2. Bring Bottom Colour Up: when wearing two contrasting colours e.g. light top with dark bottom or dark top with light bottom you will need to ‘bring the bottom colour up’ to create symmetry in your outfit. Simply choose a necklace or scarf the same colour as the bottom garment to bring the colour up. Our eyes like symmetry and you will look co-ordinated. This principle is particularly important if adding a third or multiple additional colours to an outfit. 3. Capsule Wardrobe Formula: 2+2+5=20 Two ‘suits’ e.g. an outer and bottom that work together as if they were a suit + two necklaces or scarves the same colour as the bottoms of the ‘suits’ + five tops that work with all the other items = 20 different outfits. Each top has four outer layer combinations.

What about jewellery – is this a matter of personal taste or are larger, chunkier pieces not so appropriate in this age group? Accessories are the links that turn separates into great outfits and are also a great way to express your personality and personal style. Which jewellery (earrings and necklaces), scarf-tying techniques, glasses shapes, hair style and necklines suit you is governed by whether the natural shape of your inner facial characteristics (eyebrows, eyes, nose, cheeks, lips & chin) are more angular or more curved. Inner facial characteristics often change as we age, so get yours checked at least every seven years. When choosing jewellery also keep in mind your personal style and scale.

Do you have any suggestions for what to wear as the seasons change from winter to spring? Trans-seasonal dressing is an excellent technique to use as the seasons change. Simply layer merino under lighter-weight tops, e.g. chiffon top with merino underneath and a jacket or cardigan over the top. Alternatively, you can use a lighter-weight top without an under layer and use an outer layer that you can remove if you need to. Just remember, if your outfit is like a suit, but the top you wear underneath and the pants are contrasting colours on top and bottom, add a necklace the same colour as the pants, as that ties the top and bottom together symmetrically and allows you to remove your matching outer layer if you get too warm and you will still have a co-ordinated outfit.

for this purpose, as this document deals with personal property and does not extend to property owned as a Trustee. Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) has confirmed that an Attorney appointed under an EPA Property cannot sign an Authority & Instruction Form for an incapacitated Trustee. That being the case, an application to the High Court will need to be made for a Vesting Order, under s 52 of the Trustee Act 1956, to vest the trust property in the names of the new Trustees. As Trustees get older, regular meetings of the Trustees will be critical for the on-going management of the Trust. At Harmans we have experience in dealing with trust law and estate planning and can help you to ensure your Trust operates as it should.

Resort-style retirement living in Geraldine

The well-stocked library is popular with residents.

The last stage is under construction at McKenzie Lifestyle Village but there are still good sites available. There are also a number of affordable villas ready for immediate occupation. The beautiful Leisure Centre is very popular with the residents, who make full use of the swimming and spa pools, gymnasium, craft room, library and lounge area. Outside, the bowling green is also popular, along with Petanque, Mini-golf and Table Bowls. This coming summer will see Croquet being played on the Village Green. The residents’ monthly activities calendar boasts the following: bowls events, concert going (Operatunity), shopping trips, lunch outings, yoga, housie, Qigong (Tai Chi), happy hour, knitting, quiz nights, cards and games, book club, Bible discussion, craft sessions, and there are regular visits by the hairdresser

(weekly) and the podiatrist. The residents enjoy an enviable resort-style lifestyle. It is also surprisingly affordable. A former Christchurch resident, Judith, says, “We couldn’t have all this for what we are paying if we were still in Christchurch.” Another resident, David, says, “My wife and I have never been so well off as we are now we have moved to McKenzie Lifestyle Village.” Geraldine is a great little town with a very pleasant microclimate. There is plenty to do in and around the town with art galleries, theatre and cinema, interesting shops and boutiques, two museums and a wide range of good places to eat. For the more adventurous there are river and forest walks nearby, opportunities for biking and a choice of two local golf clubs. For more information you can talk to David Connolly about this on 0800 84 55 24.

ARE YOU READY TO DOWNSIZE? Paying rates for a house that’s too big? Paying maintenance and heating costs for space you don’t use? A move to one of our architecturally designed villas at McKenzie Lifestyle Village in Geraldine will cut those costs. Three villas are available for occupation now, priced from $355,000. Talk to David Connolly today on 0800 84 55 24.

A new business built on skills & experience Starting a new career or business after the age of 50 can be both exciting and daunting. Forward 50 talks to educator Kate Brown about how she developed a consultancy business where she could use her skills and experience in a new and rewarding way.

What age were you when you decided to leave teaching to start your consultancy business? I was 58.

What prompted you to make that change after a long and successful career as an educator? I had been working overseas in International Schools for 17 years and wanted to bring some of the best practice in international education into New Zealand schools.

learning needs and with a focus on understandings not memorisation. We have to educate our students for their future not our past.

You have had considerable overseas experience in education, so does that help you in your business and if so, how? For the last 14 years I have been working with the International Baccalaureate Curriculum (IB), which is concept-based and delivered through inquiry pedagogy. I became a workshop leader for the IB, going round the world leading professional development for teachers in IB schools. I had also had several stints of working with the IB to develop their curriculum, and with this experience, and my understanding of the gains of a concept-based curriculum for student learning, I began my mission to support New Zealand schools to create the best possible curriculum for their students.

What have been the greatest challenges What advice would you give anyone in starting and running your own considering starting a new business business and what are the rewards? after the age of 50? The challenges: drumming up business and staying organised. I find I have to be very disciplined to organise myself, having worked to bells for over 40 years. The rewards: a great sense of pride in what I have achieved, working with a variety of amazing New Zealand educators in different settings, and being able to organise my own time. When I wish to pick up my grandchildren from school and kindy my current boss is always willing to let me out early!

What is the main focus of your consultancy? My main focus is supporting schools to develop a curriculum that is engaging for students, relevant to their

Work hard and don’t falter at the setbacks – just class it as experience and move on to the next opportunity. Have faith in your own ability. Go for it. Join a networking group – I joined Venus. This not only gives you the support of other motivated business people with networking opportunities, but also provides workshops and education sessions on the nitty gritty of how to get your business buzzing. If there is something in your business you don’t like doing (e.g. accounting), get someone else to do it. Don’t waste your time and worry over something that is not building your business. Enjoy the journey and constantly remind yourself of how amazing you are.

Exercising as we age has many benefits With the recent release of the Ministry of Health’s Healthy Ageing Strategy there is an increased focus on living not just longer, but also maintaining health and wellbeing by creating opportunities in a range of areas for older people.

Older adults that are not active are missing out on many of the benefits of being active, and it’s not just about being able to live a full life. There are very real benefits to all aspects of life that sedentary older adults are missing out on through their inactivity. Any physical activity is better than none at all. It can be as simple as aiming to sit less and get out and about more, adding movement into everyday tasks, as well as seeking opportunities for more structured exercise. Many exercise facilities, recreation centres and pools offer classes and sessions that are most suitable for the older exerciser. While exercising can be added to regular tasks, the advantages of getting involved with a facility or group are many, including being able to access expert advice. As well, it has been proven that spending time with others adds to our sense of wellbeing. The Healthy Ageing Strategy vision is that

INGREDIENTS PeA PurÉe 2 cups baby peas 2 tbsp fresh mint, chopped 2 tbsp white wine vinegar

BATTereD fISH 2 tbsp olive oil 1/2 cup flour 2 eggs 500g fish fillets

mEThoD Pea purée Boil or microwave the peas for approximately 3-4 minutes or until hot and just cooked. Drain the peas and place in a food processor with the mint and vinegar. Blend until smooth. Set aside and keep warm until ready to serve.

While medical care and access to medical services is an important part of the strategy, the focus is also on developing communities, encouraging active and connected lives and preventative services. However, adults aged 65 years and over are more likely to be sedentary than those under 65 years. These activity rates decline even more as adults aged 75 years and over are less likely to be physically active than those under 75 years.

Egg battered fish with pea purée

“older people live well, age well, and have a respectful end of life in age-friendly communities”; it seeks to maximise health and wellbeing for all older people. Getting involved in several physical activities is best, allowing variety and benefits across a range of activity areas. Anything that gets your heart rate up and makes your breathing heavier will have a positive effect on aerobic levels and heart health. Balance exercises will help prevent falls, and strength exercises can assist with maintaining posture and help with daily tasks.

Battered fish Cut the fish into desired sizes. Place flour in a shallow bowl. Break eggs and beat in another shallow bowl. Heat oil in a large frying pan. Coat fish with the flour and shake off any excess. Dip the floured fish in the egg and then place in the frying pan. Cook for approximately two minutes per side or until golden brown and just cooked through. This dish is best served with mashed potato or oven-cooked potato chips. Recipe and photo supplied by the Heart Foundation. For more heart-healthy recipes go to www.heartfoundation/recipes

If you are a senior and new to exercising, it is wise to start off slowly. Do speak to your doctor before starting or increasing physical activity. They are likely to be supportive of your increased activity, and can offer advice on making sure any medical conditions or injuries are managed. The Ministry of Health suggests older adults do 30 minutes of moderate physical activity on five days or more per week. They have several resources available on their website to help you on your way to physical activity as an older adult.

They are also quiet-riding and don’t complain about New Zealand’s course chip seal. They also provide secure feedback to the steering wheel and are directional when presented with a quick corner. There are a plethora of small cars landing in the global market at the moment, especially those from Korea. The interesting thing to note

is that many of them are now arriving in hybrid form and I’ll be evaluating several in the next few months. For those who like the traditional, the Rio is there to please. I’m not sure how many manual units will be sold, New Zealanders just like their autos way too much, and with only $1000 difference the automatic is by far the most tempting proposition. However, Kia here must be confident it can sell the stick-shift in enough numbers to justify its inclusion in the line-up. If I was a Rio buyer it would be the one for me.

No age limit in show business

Nickie Wellbourn as Sister Mary Lazarus

Scene from Sister Act

The latest production from Christchurch theatre company Showbiz Christchurch demonstrates that, while many of today’s popular shows feature a young cast, there are still opportunities for the more mature singers, actors and dancers to perform on stage. Sister Act – A Divine Musical Comedy is the company’s final production for the 2017 season, and as marketing manager Wendy Riley explains, the story requires a number of the cast members to be in the older age group. One of the principal nuns, Sister Mary Lazarus, is being played by longtime Showbiz member Nickie Wellbourn. Nickie has been involved in theatre for over 30 years, and played her first role for Showbiz in their 1987 production of Chicago. She describes Sister Act as a “blessing in disguise”, and says that while many stage productions feature young actors and dancers, this one calls for a more “worldly-wise” cast, and even though it is a role that requires some physical effort, she is thoroughly enjoying it.

production. I’m enjoying being part of it. It’s also an opportunity for some of the company members, who are not suitable for some other shows, to perform.” Both Nickie and Diane say there is no age limit to being part of a theatrical company like Showbiz, whether on stage or behind the scenes. “People don’t realise that for any show there is a whole production team back stage. And I appreciate that, because I couldn’t do what I do without them,” Nickie says. And as Diane points out, “Showbiz has opportunities for all age groups. There is no age limit, and we have a large team of volunteers and helpers.” Wendy Riley says many Showbiz members juggle careers with their voluntary theatre activities, finding the time to rehearse and perform in the evenings and weekends.

“It’s great being with the same age group and catching up with people and being all together. I’m looking forward to opening night.”

“It’s a big commitment – for rehearsals and during the season.”

For productions when she is not on stage, Nickie is involved in much of the backstage work, including makeup. Like many of the Showbiz company members, she has a full-time job, but outside work she is “fully immersed” in theatre activities, including being artistic director for a corporate entertainment organisation. She has also been part of the Canterbury Children’s Theatre and other theatre groups.

About Sister Act - A Divine Musical Comedy

Wardrobe manager for Showbiz Diane Brodie QSM has been involved with the company since 1973. She is responsible for keeping all the company’s costumes in tip-top condition and organising fittings for every production, a role she calls a “lifetime vocation”. “I enjoy the creativity involved, the contact with people and the general excitement of being caught up in the productions, but it’s very challenging too.” Diane says Sister Act is “one of the most enjoyable shows” she’s been involved with. “It’s great fun. It’s a joyous show, and that rubs off on the whole

Wardrobe manager Diane Brodie

The Showbiz team is “like a big extended family, and a lot of joy comes out of it”, Wendy says.

The story follows the exploits of 1970s wannabe disco diva Deloris Van Cartier as she escapes from her gangster boyfriend. Having witnessed him commit a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, Deloris finds herself at odds with the rigid lifestyle of the nuns and their uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent, she inspires the nuns to create a more contemporary choir and they become the hit of the community. Word of their success reaches her ex-boyfriend Curtis, who arrives with his gang to settle the score with Deloris. The Showbiz Christchurch production of Sister Act – A Divine Musical Comedy will be presented at the Isaac Theatre Royal from September 8-23.

QUESTION

I have a wisteria vine that for 36 years did not flower, I have great patience. Last year I had flowers on it and I was thrilled. However, all the vines have taken over and I need to do something with them, so could you please tell me what I should do.

Today’s winning question came from Myra Barry.

ANSWER

Firstly we must acknowledge your patience, 36 years is an amazing amount of time to wait for flowers! It’s good to hear you have finally seen some on the plant. The secret to a vigorous flowering wisteria is to promote the older flowering wood. You can do this by removing the bulk of the smaller (less than pencil width) growth that appears all over the wisteria bush every growing season particularly at the base of the plant. If you want well balanced flowering, you will need to train a number of main leaders (shoots) in the direction you want them to grow. These should be attached firmly to a house, fence or structure to support them. Shorten back the growth appearing from these main leaders to approximately 20cm at the end of the growing season. As the climbers mature, black buds will appear on these lateral growths which are an indication of your flowers forming. During the summer growth period, regularly remove long, thin tangling growth to encourage the plant to put its energy into flowers instead of foliage. After flowering at the end of the season, remove old flower heads and allow the main leaders to grow and extend where required. If you have soil that is poor nutritionally or is dry, it’s a good idea to mulch around your wisteria plant with Daltons Compost, and add a layer of Daltons Garden Mulch & Grow on top.

Use secateurs to keep your plants in shape „„ By Mark Rayner Whether it’s a ‘living sculpture’ of topiary or a space-saving espaliered fruit tree, there are a number of ways we can deliberately shape plants to achieve a certain effect or yield maximum results in the minimum space. Here are some of the basics. TIP TOP TOPIARY Most of us are familiar with tightly clipped shrubs carefully sculpted into geometric (and sometimes more fanciful) forms. The secret to successful small

topiary is to use fine-leaved evergreen plants with sturdy stems to maintain the form, carefully trimming to shape with secateurs or sometimes shears. STANDARDS A standardised tree or shrub consists of a single stem or trunk with a ‘head’ of growth at the top. This is either achieved by continuously removing any side branches as the plant develops or grafting the head onto an existing trunk (this is usually done at the nursery with the resulting plant sold as a standard). Standardised plants are useful

where space is limited or to introduce a more sculptural element to a planting scheme. With grafted standards, however, special care must be taken to remove any side shoots to prevent the plant from reverting. ESPALIERING Used most effectively for growing fruit (often apples or pears) in a small space, the technique of espaliering involves training branches horizontally along a support (usually a fence or wall), tying back as each branch grows and carefully pruning any wayward shoots.

120th Anniversary The City of Christchurch has long been recognised as the Garden City, both locally and internationally for many years, but would you believe that the term was first coined as long ago as 1907, by the Special Commissioner of the NZ International Exhibition in his speech closing the exhibition.

In 1914, the Mayor of Christchurch emphasised that the CBA should continue its work until there was no doubt of Christchurch being a garden city. In 1997, the City obtained the ultimate award for its efforts by being named out of 600 entries from cities with over 300K population as the “Garden City of the World” in a worldwide competition. The following year the City won the United Nations’, Environmental Section, “Nations in Bloom”! So where does the CBA fit into all of this, and why did the City Mayor give this Association the mandate to develop the city into a “Garden City”? Well let me explain! Christchurch was developed during the 1800’s and by the 1880’s the city was expanding quickly but was dirty and unkempt, there was little official control or coordination and the ever-increasing industry and services were having a detrimental effect on the environment. While the City Council Reserves Department and the Domain’s Board had the responsibility for the planning and maintaining the City environment, their budget was very limited and therefore managing the appearance of the city was not one of their priorities. However, things were about to change. In the early 1890’s a gardener, William Wickens, was employed by the Reserves Department to clean up many of the trees, (mainly willows) planted to retain the river banks, and plantings carried out by the early settlers on their arrival in Christchurch. In 1897, the CBA was formed and was one of the first civic environmental associations formed in NZ with it’s membership including a number of leading citizens: Samuel Hurst Seager, an architect of national significance, Harry Ell, the local MP (his memorial is the Summit Road), Albert Kaye, a prominent businessman and Leonard Cockayne, who became NZ’s pioneer botanist. The Association was also one of the first conservationists in NZ. It is largely due to their enterprise and support that remnants of the native Bush at Riccarton, Arthurs Pass and the Port Hills became public reserves. It also promoted the conservation of historic buildings including the preservation of the Provincial Council Building.

The Association’s earliest objective was to beautify the City’s reserves and develop much of the work and leisure areas in an environment of trees. One of their first tasks was to plant a display of petunias along the banks of the Avon. The following year the beds were replaced with daffodils and primroses. 3000 Japanese irises along with Banksia roses and Clematis were planted on the riverbanks and the wooden bridges festooned with Virginia Creeper. Enhancement of the riverbanks continues to be an important aspect of the Association to this day. Planning to improve ‘Market” Square (now Victoria Square) which at the time was a shingle pit, in preparation for Queen Victoria’s 1897 Jubilee celebrations was also an early initiative as was the extensive planting of trees and shrubs along the river and central reserves during the first year. 1889 saw the riverbank planted along part of Cambridge Terrace (now known as Poplar Terrace). Copious planting of natives took place – Matipo, Totara, Kowhai, Ribbonwoods, Cabbage trees and Toi Toi. Many plants were supplied by Association members who transplanted specimens from their own private gardens. In 1907, as a result of a bequest from Hon J. T. Peacock, the association decided that an iron fountain, prefabricated at Coalbrookdale Iron works in Shropshire, England would be purchased. It was finally purchased and assembled in 1911 being initially placed on the site where the McDougall Gallery was to be built and once this was commenced the fountain was moved to the east end of the then Archery Lawn.

appearing at times of low water flow. In 1933, plans were drawn up for a weir to be built near the tea kiosk in the Botanical Gardens. The aim was to beautify the river by making a series of placid pools. While bureaucracy caused a number of difficulties and delays, agreement was reached to place a weir below the Antigua Boatsheds. The weir was finally built in 1939 and was primarily funded by the Association. Examples of other key initiatives promoted and sponsored by the Association include the introduction of underground telephone and power cables, the placement of the Nurses’ home and the Victoria Jubilee clock, the beautification of the suburbs, the enhancement of school gardens and cemeteries including the introduction of Lawn cemeteries, the enhancement of the city gateways and the development of Memorial Ave. In 1952, as a result of a donation from the Calder MacKay family (proprietors of Calder MacKay Department store), a large floral clock was built and installed north of the Victoria Street Bridge near the law courts. It is currently awaiting restoration as part of the earthquake repairs to Victoria Square.

Exactly 100 years following the first meeting of the Association, the Governor General of New Zealand, Sir Michael Hardie – Boys, presided over the ceremony to install a large waterwheel at Mill Island in the Avon River. Work on organising the wheel had commenced in 1991 and it took a substantial effort on the part of the Association and their dedicated team to reach completion. This project acknowledged the work of their

Over the years, it became unreliable and expensive to maintain and so was removed in 1949 and placed in storage. In 1993 the CBA along with support from the Christchurch Historic Places Trust, restored the fountain and erected it at the Rolleston Avenue entrance to the Botanical Gardens. Mayor Vickie Buck presided over its reinstatement in June 1996. It continues to play to this day. In the early 1900’s it became noticeable that the Avon River was becoming very dirty, overgrown with weeds and mud banks

founding members and the generations of citizens who work and support the Garden City.

The Association carries out the planting of daffodils in Hagley Park each year and to date we have planted over 90 thousand bulbs in the park. We also carry out plantings and other projects in various parts of the city. Home garden competitions were introduced in 1898 and in 1950 Street Competitions came into being. Today these continue to be popular, as do the bus tours following the completion of judging. This year the CBA team assessed and judged over 4000 streets and their gardens as a part of the “Community Pride” partnership with the Christchurch City Council and Community Boards. This year as part of the Association’s 120th year celebrations we initiated a project to encourage and support the development of a Garden Village concept in keeping with “Christchurch the Garden City”. This includes existing and new social housing and other housing developments as they are developed. To reinforce the idea the Association are currently working with G. J. Gardners Ltd, NZ’s largest home building company, to have a 60 home, over 50’s village, in a West Christchurch suburb. A high standard of garden design and maintenance is one of the conditions of ownership of the individually owned homes in the village. In June of this year, the Association went before the Social and Community

Development Committee of the Christchurch City Council and presented our case for the “Garden Village concept” to be introduced as part of the City’s culture and to promote the Garden City image. Submissions included the need to have a significant monument celebrating the “World’s Best Garden City” awarded to Chch in 1996 and Nations in Bloom Award in 1997. The committee has requested a report in relation to the concept, including information on how to develop garden plans

for the Council’s social housing complexes, and potential partners for future park developments becoming living villages. In due course council staff will present a report to the Committee for its consideration. Why are these gardening and beautifying activities popular with the people of Christchurch? Many individuals landscape and develop their gardens to ensure the practical needs of the garden are satisfied, it also provides the obvious satisfaction of

personal achievement. Some find immense satisfaction in the creation of a garden filled with a kaleidoscope of colour, others in the production of a host of elegantly formed plants that can grace the home or be cut for the delight of friends. Moreover, some enter into the rare pleasures of exhibition culture and those who do, have a persistence and willingness to do better each succeeding year. All this carries its own special reward – that of comradeship and a feeling of belonging, a golden thread of friendship that winds itself inextricably through the whole pattern of activities and the community. The Association is in itself an all pervading interest, whatever the season there is something to do, whether it is tending the plants at home or on public areas, talking to kindred spirits at a show or meeting, avidly studying the process of growing and evolution, coaching and training, learning to be a judge, or as an onlooker providing support to the organisation. The Association has a long and colourful history and the people of Christchurch may well salute the vision and achievements of this remarkable organisation. Its members devoted efforts have made significant contribution to making Christchurch “The Garden City” a beautiful and interesting place for both locals and international visitors.

NZ Under-15 Secondary School’s Rugby Tournament September 4th - 8th 2017, Wellington The St Bede’s College Under-15 rugby side is about to measure itself against the country’s best. The 23-strong squad will travel up to Wellington for the 2017 New Zealand Under-15 secondary school’s rugby tournament, an invitational event which St Bede’s College hosted in 2010. St Bede’s is a relative newcomer to the tournament compared to many schools, having only taken part for the last ten years. This year’s squad is eager to replicate the heroics of their predecessors in 2013, 2015 and 2016 where St Bede’s finished second, third and sixth respectively. Their coaches, Matt Malone and Nick Ryan, are enthused about the possibilities and opportunities for the upcoming tournament. “In terms of going and competing against other top rugby schools from across New Zealand, this provides a fantastic opportunity

for our boys to take a yardstick on how they are performing and preparing themselves for future rugby,” Ryan says. The tournament schedules six games in five days, so teams will face short turnaround of matches, player attrition, and the need for a full squad to be involved so that all players are ready to play and to play well. Our emphasis this year, as it has been in previous years, is about going up there and performing to our full potential. We want to make sure that our boys have an experience and the opportunity to develop as both young men and as rugby players,” Malone says. Team manager Robert de Roo says the support from sponsors and parents has been overwhelming. “The logistics and the cost of getting to each tournament is always particularly challenging, which is why their support of

young people endeavouring to achieve to the best of their ability is pretty special. Without them it would be very difficult,” he says. “The parents in particular have been awesome in terms of supporting the team throughout our local season as well as getting right behind the numerous fundraising initiatives for tournament.” Malone, Ryan and de Roo say they would like to thank the wider school community, the St Bede’s Rugby Club and particularly the parents for their support in fundraising for this trip. The team has had a challenging season to date, with some mixed results in the Under-15 grade. Their performances have improved as the season has progressed and they are quietly confident that all the preparation, challenges and hard work will pay off in the coming weeks, undoubtedly great preparation for tournament.

TOP HARNESS trainer Robert Dunn suspects foul play was involved when four horses in his stable engaged at the Nelson Winter Cup meeting in June returned positive swabs for caffeine. Racing Integrity Unit general manager Mike Godber confirmed to The Star this week that Dunn believes the horses were nobbled. “From Robert’s thinking, it could be someone deliberately doing something,” said Mr Godber. Three of the positive tests were directly from the Dunn stable, while the fourth was from Craig and Aimee Edmonds’ stable. However, that horse was under the care of the Dunn stable, which took it to Nelson. The RIU’s investigation into

the positive swabs has been under way for two months now and is expected to be completed in the next fortnight. The Star has also learned the people accused of the nobbling claim are considering legal action. Dunn did not return calls to The Star. Mr Godber said the RIU is following a number of different factors as to why the

horses produced positive swabs, including Dunn’s belief that the horses were nobbled. “That’s the sort of stuff we have to look at as well, and it takes a bit of time, said Godber. “When a horse is away from home, it can be any sort of reason. We went up and took samples from the stables and the area where the horses were in Nelson for the couple of days.”

CBHS zero in on first top four tournament in three years „„ By Gordon Findlater CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High School will look to qualify for their first national championship since 2014 when they play Southland Boys’ High on Saturday. The winner of the South Island final in Invercargill will advance to the top four tournament next month. The final is a rematch of last year’s final which saw SBHS advance to the top four. However, CBHS took the honours 30-17

the last time the two met during the pre-season. “I’m not sure there’s a huge amount we can take from that game, other than the confidence that we’ve played against and defeated them before,” said CBHS coach Danny Porte. At the weekend, CBHS defeated Timaru Boys’ High 18-10 in the UC Championship final. Playing at first five-eighths, CBHS’s Rico Syme stole the show, pulling off two brilliant chip-and-chases.

The big TBHS forward pack tested CBHS but they will face a very different challenge against SBHS. “From what I gather, they will be quite similar to us. It’s their backline that will pose the most threats,” said Porte. SBHS advanced to the South Island final by recovering from a 12-point deficit to defeat Otago Boys’ High School 29-27 in the Highlanders regional final. The game in Invercargill kicks off at Les George Oval at 1pm.

Marshall’s brother may see action for Tigers against Warriors BENJI MARSHALL will return to Wests Tigers next season – but his younger brother’s NRL career may burst into action against the Warriors this weekend. Jeremy Marshall-King has been named on an extended bench for the Tigers’ final-round clash with the Warriors on Sunday at Leichhardt Oval. The talented 22-year-old has been one of the few shining lights for the Tigers reserve grade side this season, which finished last in the

NSW Cup. Marshall-King, who was born in New Zealand but moved to Sydney at age 10 to live with his brother, has been named in the No 19 jersey. He can play anywhere in the attacking spine and will likely provide cover if lock Elijah Taylor succumbs to a rib injury, given the regular backrower has been named at No 9 and there are no other hooking options. Regular hooker Matt

McIlwrick has been ruled out through suspension. Meanwhile, Marshall-King could also come onto the interchange if halfback Luke Brooks fails to overcome a hamstring injury which ruled him out of last week’s loss to North Queensland. Marshall-King’s selection comes a week after Bayley Sironen – son of Tigers legend Paul Sironen – made his debut for the club. The Warriors have named

an unchanged squad for their clash with the Tigers. Head coach Stephen Kearney has retained the same starting combination used in Sunday’s heartbreaking 21-22 golden point extra-time loss to Manly. The extended eight-man bench is also unchanged ahead of a weekend when the club’s Intrust Super Premiership team begins its finals campaign against Penrith after finishing second in the regular season.

It gets as standard leather-type trim, keyless entry and ignition, satellite navigation, paddle-shift gear selectors, head-up display and dual zone climate control, amidst other key features. I-Activesense, a suite of safety technologies that Mazda is building into most of today’s product, is fitted and it includes G-Vectoring Control which is the latest technology to promote handling and ride quality within the safety structure.

make all of their models efficient and effective. The four-cylinder, petrol engine in the GSX is rated with a 140kW power output, it also gets 251Nm of torque. The characteristics of the SkyActive engine are structured so that mid-range torque is utilised, it doesn’t need to work hard to glean performance and that has a beneficial effect on fuel usage. • Price – Mazda CX-5 GSX, $45,995 • Dimensions – Length, 4550mm; width, 1840mm; height, 1675mm • Configuration – Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive, 2488cc, 140kW, 251Nm, sixspeed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 8.9sec • Fuel usage – 7.5l/100km

Mazda rates the 2488cc unit with a 7.5-litre per 100km (38mpg) combined cycle fuel usage average. That sits well with the 8.8l/100km (32mpg) figure constantly showing on the trip computer readout during my time with the evaluation car, and the 6l/100km (47mpg) instantaneous figure showing at 100km/h on the highway. Drive is channelled through a traditional sixspeed automatic transmission. There are no surprises there, but for the fact it, too, contributes to the quality feel, the changes are smooth and the ratios are structured so that it offers premium acceleration along with slow engine speed on the highway to maximise fuel use. I intended to take the evaluation car on my usual highway loop – Waddington, Hororata and

Dunsandel – but a storm had settled over the east coast and flooding in the Selwyn River had closed many roads. Even though the road surfaces were drenched, the CX-5 felt solid and secure. I stopped on the roadside near Darfield to take some notes without realising the soft nature of the berm, the car sank deep into mud. Nevertheless, with gentle application of the throttle I could feel the four-wheeldrive system proportion drive to the corners most likely to get grip. I wasn’t concerned that I would be stuck for the drive mechanicals easily eased the vehicle out of the mire. The suspension is a fully independent setup to allow for the inclusion of drive to the rear, there is also long movement which promotes a compliant ride. On that family trip to the West Coast or on the daily school drop-off, the CX-5 constantly looks after its occupants in the way we have warmed to sport utility vehicles. Also, when you feel the need for peppy acceleration it’s nice to know there’s the punch from that sizeable engine on tap. More importantly though, the CX5 is all about the everyday role we put SUVs through, and it delivers with the satisfaction we have come to expect from Mazda’s manufacturing process. I know I’m a little bit biased, there’s a Mazda in the Kiddie family and I often marvel at its design and integrity. Mazda has thrown itself into a path that even though it still sits as a mainstream manufacturer, its processes are bordering on those which ply the premium market.

It can be helpful to make a checklist to streamline the process and ensure you don’t overlook anything. It’s a good idea to hide your calendars – open home viewers don’t need to know when you plan to be away, or where you’re planning to go. Put away family photos, and lock away any passports, spare keys, financial statements and credit cards. Store any alcohol and prescription drugs out of sight and preferably out of the reach of children. On the day of the open home, it is best to wait at the property until the agent arrives so you can officially pass the security responsibility to them. Be sure to walk the agent through the property and orient them as needed. Ask them if you can help them close up at the end of the open home. Together you can check the property, including any storage areas and outside spaces. Double check all the locks on windows and doors to make sure they are secured as they were before the viewing started.

Seaside Brunch FANCY 'a side' of ocean view with your brekkie? Well it's available on the menu at the Pierview Restaurant. Located upstairs in the New Brighton Club, the Pierview Restaurant has always been a popular destination for dining and private functions. Offering uninterrupted views of beach, pier and coastline, the view is a stunning accompaniment to any occasion. Warmer weekends in Canterbury have seen an increase in people enjoying the beach side and to add to the seaside attraction the Pierview is now open Sundays from 10.30am to 2pm for brunch. Offering all the expected scrumptious breakfast/brunch delights, the menu also caters to children. Apart from Sunday Brunch the Pierview is open from 5.30pm Friday to Sunday serving quality, yet very affordable, a la carte dining. The last Sunday of the month has turned into a tradition with the Pierview’s ‘all you can eat’ Buffet. Priced at just $25 per person, tables fill fast on buffet nights, so bookings are essential. And on
