Doctor tells of desperate bid to save pensioners PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Mates: Bruce Imrie with rescuer Rory Clarke on Sumner beach yesterday. Right: Bruce’s wife Maureen who died and the crash site on Main Rd.

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart A DOCTOR has spoken for the first time of his desperate bid to rescue pensioner Bruce Imrie and his wife Maureen. Junior doctor Rory Clarke saw the couple’s car plunge into the estuary near Sumner in March, and leapt in after them. Mr Imrie was rescued, but Mrs Imrie died.

Mr Clarke had been travelling in a taxi to a party in Sumner with his girlfriend, orthopaedic doctor Tara Kubba, and friend, fellow junior doctor Oliver Beaumont. He said they saw Mr Imrie’s car fail to take a bend on Main Rd and drive straight in front of the taxi, forcing the taxi driver to slam on the brakes. Mr Imrie’s car slammed through the wooden barrier on the corner and into the water.

Yesterday, Dr Clarke told how he and Dr Beaumont ran to the water, where the car was rapidly submerging, and leapt in. “Olly dived in first, and I just followed him,” he said. Dr Clarke and Dr Beaumont have both been honoured by police with a district commander’s commendation for bravery, while Dr Kubba has been given a certificate of appreciation. •Turn to page 5

Thursday September 28 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

PEOPLE DO remarkable things when the adrenalin kicks in, and on page 1 today we have one of these stories. Young doctors Rory Clarke and Oliver Beaumont chanced across a serious crash in March when Bruce and Maureen Imrie’s car went through a barrier and ended up in the estuary. Rory and Oliver didn’t hesitate, leapt into the estuary and desperately tried to free Bruce and Maureen from the vehicle. Rory and Oliver, and Rory’s girlfriend Tara Kubba, have just been recognised by the police for their efforts. Yesterday, Rory caught up with Bruce at Sumner beach and relayed their story to reporter Gabrielle Stuart. It was a fairly emotional interview, as these ones can be. On page 3 today, Gordon Findlater talks to two of Canterbury’s most promising young golfers who today play in their first LPGA event. And on pages 4/5, Bridget Rutherford reveals what we all know – our roads are still terrible. –Barry Clarke

Students join Lydia Ko on tour „„ By Gordon Findlater TWO Christchurch students will tee off in the world’s biggest women’s golf tour today. Burnside High School students Juliana Hung, 15, and Amelia Garvey, 17, are following in the footsteps of superstar Lydia Ko by playing in their first LPGA tour event as teenagers. The New Zealand Open at Windross Farm Golf Club, Auckland, is the first time the country has hosted an LPGA tour event. It carries a purse of NZ$1.85 million and will be televised around the world. Ko is a key factor in the LPGA’s decision to include New Zealand as a stop on its Asia swing. Should Hung and Garvey go on to accomplish anything close to what Ko has achieved they will be rolling in the dollars. Two years ago, Ko was at the top of the list of LPGA Tour money earners, pocketing NZ$3.88 million in 2015. From playing in the amateur ranks in New Zealand and Australia to taking on the LPGA Tour, Hung and Garvey admit to some extra nerves as they went through their practice round on Tuesday. “I was quite scared actually because there’s so many famous people and now you’re practicing alongside them. It actually feels unreal,” said Hung.

YOUNG GUNS: Juliana Hung, 15 and Amelia Garvey, 17, will both debut in the world’s largest women’s golf tour today. Lydia Ko is one the major drawcards at the New Zealand Open.

Garvey, who plays for Kaiapoi, played her practice round with Canadian world No 12 Brooke Henderson. “That was an amazing opportunity to see how she plays and to compare my game against hers,” said Garvey. “It’s nice to be able to play with someone who’s in a position I want to be in the future.” Garvey qualified for the tournament by winning the New Zealand strokeplay championship in March.

City councillor Yani Johanson and the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board have asked city council staff to prepare a report on whether the site could be used for a dog park. The village was set up by Tamaki Heritage Experiences, owned by brothers Doug and Mike Tamaki, in 2007 but closed after the earthquakes because of financial issues. Their brother, Brian Tamaki, cofounded Destiny Church. MOBILITY PARKING MISUSE The misuse of mobility parking spaces will be addressed with new technology. The city council and CCS Disability Action have joined forces for a pilot project to make it easier to find mobility parking spaces and stop people abusing them. Sensors have been put on selected mobility spaces that detect Bluetooth tiles on mobility permits. If the sensors do not pick up a Bluetooth signal, they will send an alert to the parking enforcement team.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of the condition of the city’s roads? Email bridget.rutherford@starmedia.kiwi

Seven years on and our roads „„ By Bridget Rutherford THE STATE of more than half of the city’s roads is rated average or poorly, nearly seven years on from the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The city council’s transport asset management condition indicator said 25 per cent of roads were rated average, 21 per cent poor and 14 per cent were very poor. Eighteen per cent were rated excellent and 22 per cent were good. But the city council is confident the statistics will improve in the next assessment. The report was prepared for the city council’s finance and performance committee this month. Automobile Association Canterbury-West Coast district council chairman Roy Hughes said the emphasis of the roading work was wrong. “There’s been a major downturn in tourists visiting Christchurch because they are not happy with the surface condition. Millions of dollars are being spent on changing the layouts, but not on the surfacing.”

POOR: The roading surface around the New Brighton Rd and Wainoni Rd roundabout is bumpy. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER He said motorists were still having to spend a lot on suspension and tyre damage because of potholes and bumps. “Our members are very concerned that seven years on we have seen a lack of co-ordination and sequencing of repair work to improve the surfaces.” The now defunct Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure

Rebuild Team, which wrapped up in December, repaired and replaced more than 1.38 million sq m of road. City council head of transport Chris Gregory said a “significant number” of roads were smoothed and resealed in last year’s programme, and that would show in the next round of assessment.

“Council will be continuing in the 17/18 sealing programme to improve the condition of roading assets.” Further smoothing of roads will be considered as part of the long term plan, he said. Mr Gregory said a significant part of SCIRT’s focus was repairing underground water and waste pipes, and the roads

affected were made safe and functional by SCIRT. New Zealand Taxi Federation Canterbury president Stan Gane said taxi vehicles were still damaging wheels and tyres from potholes and bumpy roads, particularly in the east. “It’s hard to present a good, professional vehicle when we’re constantly driving on muddy and dirty roads.” Mr Gane said although the surface on newly reconfigured roads, such as St Asaph St, were good, the layout was an “absolute shambles.” It was dangerous for people getting in and out of taxis, because they could not pull off the road due to the high kerbs, he said. “We have major concerns for dropping off and picking up customers, we need to be able to pull over,” he said. The condition of the 2043km of sealed roads, and 349km of unsealed ones is assessed annually. All roads receive a roughness rating, and 25 per cent of each road gets a visual condition rating.

rate poorly A report by the Controller and Auditor-General Lyn Provost last year said as part of the 2013 cost sharing agreement, the Crown would spend $1.8 billion on horizontal infrastructure, while the city council estimated to spend $1.14 billion. Over time the arrangement changed. In 2015, the Government revised its contribution to $1.689 billion, saying it would not fund renewals, the report said. City councillor Yani Johanson said the repairs carried out by SCIRT were not up to scratch. “I think people have been conned, they thought they were going to get their streets fixed.” He said the Yani Johanson roads were poorer quality, because under SCIRT they were only sealed once, and the Crown contribution changed. But Cr Johanson said city council staff were putting more energy into making sure the road maintenance was done well.

But Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration Nicky Wagner said the roads were being repaired under the Civil Defence Emergency Management manual standard, which required one seal. She said a second would need to be done as part of ongoing maintenance. Ms Wagner said there was a lot of betterment through the SCIRT works to both roads and underground infrastructure. “I do think there’s part of our city the roads aren’t great that will need to be repaired in the long term. But overall, it’s a lot better.” Forty-five per cent of footpaths were in an excellent condition, while 87 per cent of cycleways were.

Doctor tells of bid to save pensioners •From page 1 Dr Beaumont has since moved to the United Kingdom. Canterbury district commander John Price said their actions had put them at considerable risk, and required fortitude and courage. But Dr Clarke said he did not feel like a hero. “You can’t watch something like that happen and not do anything,” he said. They were able to open Mr Imrie’s door and get him out, and pull him back to the beach. But he said the car was swept away within minutes, before they were able to rescue Mrs Imrie. By that time, he said other passersby had joined the pair in the water, including several surf life savers from Sumner. Mr Imrie said he believed he had “blacked out” before the crash. The crash and his wife’s death still haunted him everyday. What happened afterward was a blur. The only thing he remembered from the rescue was Dr Kubba bending over him on the beach, trying to revive him. Dr Clarke said the water had been “freezing”, and both he and Dr Beaumont were shaking from

the cold after only minutes in the water. “I think we were in first stage hypothermia,” he said. He had a bright red triple XL knitted jersey in the taxi which he planned to wear to the party, which was fancy dress, so he huddled on the beach in that. Mr Imrie said he called Dr Clarke for the first time after the commendation, inviting him out for a pint to thank him. They had since built a friendship, bonding over a shared love of rugby. Mr Imrie said Dr Clarke and Dr Beaumont had been incredibly courageous. They had saved his life. He said the past six months had been incredibly difficult for him. His daughter, Gaenor, died suddenly in Sydney two months after Maureen’s death. He has also had to wait for the outcome of the po-

lice investigation into Maureen’s death to hear if charges would be laid against him. Police decided last week to close the case without laying charges. Mr Imrie said Maureen was an incredible person.“She didn’t deserve this,” he said. He had met her when he moved to London from Dunedin as a 19-year-old in the 1950s. She was 15, and lived across the road from him. He said children were her life, especially the couple’s son, daughter and two grandsons, and the countless children Mrs Imrie had taught as a nanny and a teacher. Mr Imrie said his wife had a stroke shortly before the crash, and had been terrified she would have another one. “She always said she didn’t want to get old,” he said. But after her stroke he said the couple had made an effort to spend as much time as they could together, and had always said “I love you” many times every day. He struggled to face life without her. “I’ve found it tough to do anything. You wonder why you’re doing it, to be honest,” he said.

Bank sues ex-wife of fraudster WESTPAC NEW Zealand is suing the ex-wife of convicted Lane Walker Rudkin fraudster Ken Anderson for being a party to the fraud and is seeking damages of $50.8 million. The lender claims Patricia Anderson either defrauded it, or was part of a conspiracy to defraud it, by signing documents she knew were false in securing a $2.5 million letter of credit facility, which masked the financial strain the clothing manufacturer was under. She sought a number of interlocutory orders for the lender to amend its claim for further and better particulars. Associate Judge Rob Osborne granted some of Anderson’s requests and dismissed others in a recently published September 12 judgement in the High Court in Christchurch. Westpac was left out of pocket since it tipped Lane Walker Rudkin into receivership in April 2009, recovering $41 million of the $130 million owed at the time. It first served the claim on Anderson in mid-2016, the judgement shows. Patricia and Ken Anderson were signatories and guarantors to the lender’s offer of credit for

Lane Walker Rudkin in 2001, and Westpac claims they said they were accountants, the judgement said. The couple split up in 2005, and a year later her guarantee from the original offer of credit expired. Westpac claims Lane Walker Rudkin began facing financial problems from 2004 and had a shortfall in working capital which managers and Patricia Anderson tried to bridge with the letter of credit facility, which

the judgement dubs the LOC fraud. The bank claims the use of the facility was dishonest because “invoices for fictitious stock were created to enable funds to be drawn down” and that Anderson was executing documents she knew were false, the judgement said. The company was more than a century old and employed hundreds of people who lost their jobs. “The plaintiff alleges that if it

had been aware of the financial difficulties, the fact that the Andersons were not accountants and the LOC fraud, it would neither have released the defendant from her guarantee nor increased its lending to Lane Walker Rudkin Industries and the LWR Group,” the judgement said. “Further, as a result of the LOC fraud, its losses amount to approximately $50.8 million.” If Patricia Anderson didn’t deceive the bank, it claims that she conspired and combined with management to perpetrate the fraud, leading to the $50.8 million of losses. Lane Walker Rudkin’s former owner Ken Anderson pleaded guilty to four fraud charges in 2013, where he made false statements to secure lending from Westpac, and sentenced to six years imprisonment. He was granted parole in January last year. The Serious Fraud Office initially laid 82 charges against Ken Anderson in 2011 before his guilty plea, saying at the time the fraud “had a profound effect on the region, with LWR having employed many staff and enjoyed an international reputation.” – NZ Herald

No permanent alcohol ban around stadium „„ By Bridget Rutherford A PERMANENT alcohol ban will not be put in place around AMI Stadium and Horncastle Arena. The Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board has decided not to recommend a permanent ban to city council staff because it was not justified. It comes after Vbase, which runs both facilities, requested one to stop people “pre-loading” in the car parks before events, and to curb intoxication, assaults and lewd behaviour. Vbase general manager Darren Burden said they were “very disappointed” with the community board’s decision. He said Vbase was trying to be proactive. A security guard at a Broods concert at Horncastle was assaulted in July last year, receiving minor injuries, which was one of the reasons Vbase wanted the ban. It wanted it to cover the same area as the temporary ban does during New Zealand Trotting Cup Day, which is bordered by Lincoln Rd, Moorhouse Ave, Blenheim Rd, Matipo St and Wrights Rd.

new discoveries,” he said. He said even a moderate oil or gas discovery could contribute up to $500 million in export value each year, and $100-200 million per annum in Government revenue for 10-30 years.

Dr Nicol said some of the volcanoes were covered in so much sediment they were not even visible on the ocean floor. But over the past 15 years, scientists had been able to use soundwaves to build a map of

the rock shapes hidden under layers of sediment. “Some of them look just like a volcano, buried: Essentially a massive cone like Mt Taranaki,” he said. His goal was now to find out what lay beneath the layer of rock. He said actually studying the volcanoes was incredibly difficult, because they lay hundreds of metres under water. Instead, the researchers planned to study volcanoes above ground to figure out the patterns of how they formed, then build complex 3D models to map how they would have developed. They could also use information about where fuel has been collected in volcanoes elsewhere in the world, which had sometimes been discovered by accident. “Early on in the exploration, quite a number of volcanoes were drilled into which people didn’t realise were volcanoes,” he said. He said heat and pressure were also needed to form the fuels, so understanding those patterns could also help them learn where oil and gas might pool.

volcanoes “All the volcanoes we’re looking at are dormant and won’t ever be active again, but quite a lot of them still have hot water percolating through the volcanoes,” he said He said volcanoes have layers of porous rock, which is often where the oil or gas reserves sit – but only if there is a layer of solid rock underneath. “If the porous layers go right to the seabed, then it escapes into the seabed,” he said. The work is one of seven Canterbury University projects

given more than $10 million in major Government research grants this year. They include $3 million for a Kaikoura marine ecosystem recovery project, and $2.5 million to develop town planning tools. The grants come from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment Endeavour Fund, which invests in projects with the potential to positively impact New Zealand economically, environmentally and socially.

‘Code brown’ in city pools „„ By Bridget Rutherford IF YOU’RE planning on going swimming at Pioneer Recreation and Sport Centre – watch out. The Spreydon facility has had the most code brown pool closures out of the city council’s three recreation centres – 41 since January. According to the city council’s faecal incident register, of the 74 closures of pools at Pioneer, 41 were for code browns, 24 were for vomit, and nine were for chemical reasons. The leisure pool was closed the John Filsell majority of times, followed by the teach pool, while the spa was closed twice – once for vomit and the other for a “faecal incident”. The main pool had three code browns and one vomit closure. The longest was for chemical purposes, at 12hr 25min, followed by a code brown which caused a nine-hour pool closure. Pools at Papanui’s Graham Condon Recreation and Sport Centre have been closed 58 times since the start of the year.

INCIDENTS: Pioneer Recreation and Sport Centre had the most “faecal incidents” out of the city council’s larger facilities.

Thirty-two of those were code browns. Six were in the main pool, 12 in the learners, three in the spa and the toddlers’ pool was closed once. Vomit forced 15 closures. The longest closure was 8hr 45min. Jellie Park Recreation and Sport Centre had the least number of incidents out of the three facilities with 28 closures, 14 of which were for faecal contamination and 14 vomiting incidents. Ten closures lasted overnight. The Coastal-Burwood Community Board came up with an idea to offer free nappies at city council pools to prevent code brown situations, but it failed to gain traction. It wanted money to be put

aside in this year’s Annual Plan process. But city council head of recreation and sport John Filsell said the provision of free nappies was not specifically reviewed for inclusion. He said it had been looked into previously. “Educating caregivers to ensure children wear nappies and are taken to the toilet prior to entering a pool is considered more effective than simply providing free nappies,” he said. “Generally, the majority of caregivers taking children to swim bring nappies with them as a matter of course.” He said they were available for sale at all city council recreation centres, and promotions were often run to help reduce pool closures.

Health board members missing in action „„ By Gabrielle Stuart HEALTH BOARD members are failing to go to disability support meetings, forcing one to be cancelled and leaving no decisions able to be made at another. Five Canterbury District Health Board members have been appointed to the disability support advisory committee, and are paid $2500-$3125 a year. Committee deputy-chairman, Chris Mene, has missed every meeting this year. Committee chairwoman Tracey Chambers has been at every meeting, but members Aaron Keown, Anna Crighton and Sally Buck have each missed a meeting. CCS Disability Action Canterbury local advisory committee chairman Peter Bradley said he was concerned about the poor attendance at meetings. Of the four formal meetings scheduled so far this year, only two have been held – in March and in May. The next formal meeting is scheduled for November, leaving a wait of at least six months before the committee can approve

Chris Mene

FAILURE: Some members of the CDHB disability committee have failed to attend meetings, leaving a six-month wait before decisions can be made on issues.

any decisions around disability issues. This month’s meeting was cancelled because not enough health board members said they could go. Board members met for the last meeting in July, but they could not make any decisions because half of the committee members were not there. That meant they fell short of the required quorum to make the meeting official. Ms Chambers did not respond

to calls from The Star. New CDHB board chairman John Wood, who was appointed to the role in August, also did not respond to questions. Mr Mene was overseas in Europe this week, and said he was not available for a call. Mr Bradley said he would hope and expect to see disability issues at the forefront of their thinking and actions. “We know that disabled people face poorer health outcomes overall in New Zealand and face

Sally Buck

every day obstacles such as lack of access and attitudinal barriers and unfortunately these are often experienced within the health system. We can’t take a break from these barriers. So we would expect the DSAC committee return to regularly progressing the issues that are raised by our community, as is their purpose,” he said. Mr Keown said part of the problem was that there were only two external committee members who were not members of the health board, compared with five last year. They are CDHB health adviser Sandy Lockhart and former health board member Olive Webb. That meant the committee was smaller, and it had more of an

Aaron Keown

impact if members were missing, he said. Mr Keown said the committee had discussed appointing other committee members, but that had been held up by Ms Chambers because she wanted to find people who were “a good fit with the direction of the committee.” He said he had missed a meeting because it clashed with an annual planning meeting he had to attend in his other role as a city councillor. Board members on committees are paid an extra $2500 per year on top of their salary, while Ms Chambers as chairwoman is paid $3125 per year. That amount can be reduced if the member attends less than 10 meetings in a year.

News Booze top of police gift list „„ By Sarla Donovan A FOOD hamper, neck ties and supermarket vouchers were among the gifts received by Canterbury Police District staff over the past 12 months. A central register is used to record gifts and hospitality offered to police employees. Booze was a popular choice of thank you. Sport Canterbury gifted two bottles of wine. A bottle from Timaru Boys’ High School’s hostel was accepted, then donated to a local retirement home. And shortly before Christmas last year, one grateful individual gave $400 of alcohol to a Christchurch detective. Other items included four neck ties and a business card holder from the Chinese consulate-general, a $50 supermarket voucher from the city council (which police staff used to purchase items for a food bank), a drinking flask and two matching travel mugs, also from the city council, and a $150 restaurant gift card from Rangi Ruru Girls’ School’s parent teacher association. Only one offering was declined and returned in Canterbury – a

POPULAR: Wine and beer featured highly on the register of gifts received by the police.

$75 supermarket voucher from a member of the public. The police policy statement on gifts, discounts and hospitality says “key considerations” include how acceptance might affect impartiality, police reputation and public perception. “Gifts should be declined unless they are of nominal value or refusing them will cause embarrassment or offence.” Nationally, a range of international organisations gave presents to police, including the

United States Naval Criminal Investigative Service, the Five Eyes law enforcement group, Michigan State University and the Taipei Ministry of Justice. In the year to June, New Zealand police received 217 gifts, of which 31 were declined and returned. The most popular gifts were alcohol, 38, followed by vouchers, 29. Event tickets, restaurant meals and food also featured highly. Along with golf towels, desk clocks and paperweights,

there were some more unusual items across the country. These included two bags of horse feed from the Lake Hayes A&P Show committee, five massage vouchers for stressed-out police staff in Wellington, 20 free tickets from Weber Bros Circus, a Chinese New Year kit and a “bag of biscuits” from an Auckland individual. And top of the list in terms of value were five watches marked with the King of Jordan’s insignia, worth $3200. Advice from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade dictated the watches be accepted, but due to their high value, the recipients made personal donations to non-police charities.

Rules set for facial hair trial at school „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A CANTERBURY high school has set the ground rules for a new trial allowing students to grow facial hair. Lincoln High School is dropping its clean-shaven only rule after its students won a year-long campaign for facial hair. A board of trustees meeting was held on Monday to finalise the rules and the length of the trial period. The new rules require facial hair to be tidy and no longer than 3cm. Facial hair must be groomed and not extend on to the neck. Longer beards may be allowed for medical or cultural reasons. Board of trustees chairman Adrian Paterson said the school received a positive response for the trial. “We expected if anyone was upset they would be getting in touch but we haven’t really had any of that,” he said. The trial is expected to run until the end of next year when it will be reassessed.

SHIFT to a

Career in Tech Looking for a career change? Tech is New Zealand’s third-largest export sector and is growing fast. To fuel this growth, NZ needs more people with a grounding in tech to meet the rapid expansion within this exciting and varied area, which crosses into many industries. SIGNAL ICT Grad School develops tech professionals to meet that growth via Shift, enabling more people to enter this dynamic and diverse sector.

The Shift Programme Shift is an innovative industry-driven programme for those who are seeking a new career path, who may not have a tech background. Open to degree-holders in any discipline, learners in the current cohorts have various backgrounds, from philosophy, sociology and marketing, to graphic design, engineering and science. Available in both Christchurch and Dunedin, this 9-month programme offers relevant and current content to ensure you are well equipped to work within the tech area, where the skills you have learnt in previous work and study are highly valued.

Partnering With Industry Shift uses immersive studio-based learning and real-world industry experience to produce graduates with a solid base of core computing skills, as well as the softer skills required in todays’ collaborative workplaces. The current Dunedin cohort, which started in February, are now working within local industry on a variety of projects, from assessing aerial drone footage of coastal erosion, to web and app development, and adding features to an online educational platform. These projects are tailored to complement their preferred specialist tech area and enhance their employability.

Opportunities With tech roles existing in nearly every area from aviation to zoology, career possibilities are extensive. Through the Shift programme, learners can focus on software design and development, or the allied roles, such as business analyst, web designer, project manager, user experience designer, technical writer, sales and client support . . . and the list goes on.

SIGNAL’s Shift transitions graduates from any discipline into tech. The July Shift cohort (pictured) is 80% female, with several being mothers. Many new and mature graduates are considering tech as a viable and lucrative career option, and this is increasing as the range of roles within tech becomes more widely known.

The tech sector can potentially offer flexible hours and work locations – making this an exciting and viable option for those with families. Diversity is welcomed, and in the current Christchurch cohort, 80 percent are women, and several learners in the Shift programme have young families. Shift is also well suited to new graduates who may be looking for that X factor to boost their employability. Situated at 181 High Street (Level 1), Christchurch (entrance off Tuam Street) in the heart of Christchurch’s growing Innovation Precinct. The next Shift intake commences in February 2018, and scholarships are available. Call SIGNAL today on 0800 990024 and start your shift into NZ’s fastest-growing sector.

The

Tech Sector Needs YOU!

Want to SHIFT into NZ’s fastest growing sector? Tech jobs exist in every industry, from aviation to zoology. Combine ANY DEGREE with the innovative SHIFT Programme and kickstart your new career today.

ISAAC’S STORY: With a Masters in Geology, Isaac Burwell had been working in the mining industry for over 10 years. Last year, while acting as the primary caregiver for his three young daughters, he re-assessed his career goals, wanting a career that was more flexible and portable. ‘I saw the Shift programme as an exciting opportunity to add specific tech skills to my knowledge base, so I can translate those skills into a new career. For my industry project, I am working with global infrastructure company Stantec NZ (formerly MWH NZ Ltd), and am looking at better ways to present data from aerial drone surveillance of coastal highway areas, to assist the engineers in their role. The school friendly course hours have allowed me to carry on with my before and after school duties, and this has really helped my family and my career training.’

But not everyone exacerbated by the is keen to front up and earthquakes, but ignored

We still haven’t done this as far as the earthquakes are concerned and I am hoping that, whichever parties form the Government, they are willing to look at what each other have said in this space. Do we need an inquiry into EQC and the insurance industry? Absolutely we do. So let’s not make it partisan. Let’s agree to some terms of reference and get on with it. Do we need a regional multi-use arena with a roof? Yes, we do. So let’s get the business case done and let’s get it properly funded. It will be the largest indoor arena in the country, which makes it important for New Zealand and not just the region.

Humbled by support THE morning after election night, candidates usually wake up grateful, if somewhat panicked, that they don’t have a full 12hr day ahead of them and with an overwhelming sense of gratitude to hundreds of people. It was no exception for me and I am going to indulge myself by issuing a few of those people thanks in this column. Across Christchurch thousands donned their respective party colours and toiled for hours to get their team across the line. To all of these volunteers, no matter what party you choose

to work tirelessly for, please accept my heartfelt thanks. You are all the lifeblood of elections. It is not easy being a candidate; it involves long hours, is often thankless, is always relentless and is really hard for those close to you. Congratulations to those who succeeded and thanks to those who were not successful. For some people it will be a one-off adventure that can be ticked of the bucket list, for others it is the start of a journey. Jim Anderton once told me he thought everyone

should run for political office at least once as you learn so much about yourself and your capabilities. And lastly, thanks to the voters. I love the huge number of people who I met on the campaign. I have formed some wonderful memories. I know I am personally humbled by the faith Wigram voters put in me and I’m sure all candidates and MPs feel the same. It is a privilege to receive the endorsement of your neighbours and to represent them, and their dreams, for another three years. •Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman

CHRISTCHURCH medical students are working with actors and a high-technology manikin to practice dealing with acute patient scenarios before encountering them in the real world. The programme is being run by the University of Otago Christchurch’s Simulation Centre. The Christchurch campus teaches students from their fourth to sixth years of medical school. Centre director Dr MaryLeigh Moore said they used actors from Hagley Theatre Company as well as high-technology manikins to prepare students for practising medicine in the real world. The Centre had rooms set up like a GP consultation room, a hospital ward, and an acute setting such as an intensive

Alan is played by an actor in much of the scenario – which saw him recovering from surgery for an appendicitis, developing a serious infection, and then being followed up after discharge from hospital. Dr Moore said at the stage

when Alan has an infection and is in the surgical high dependency unit, students interact with the centre’s hightechnology manikin, a human simulator named Alex. Alex can be programmed to simulate a myriad of medical situations and was voiced by an actor, she said. “The initiative is designed to help the trainee interns transition from student to doctor and promote work readiness. In particular, the

session focuses on ensuring patients whose health status is rapidly deteriorating receive appropriate and timely care. It also allows students to practice their communication skills and professionalism.’’ Dr Moore said senior medical professionals were involved in the programme, replicating as closely as possible a real clinical situation. Hagley Theatre Company’s artistic director Cameron Mattox said the actors enjoyed working with the Simulation Centre to create a more realistic patient experience for medical students. •There will be tours of the Simulation Centre at the University of Otago, Christchurch’s Showcase this Sunday from 1-5pm. The event will include tours of research laboratories and the medical simulation centre, interactive displays with the chance to speak with researchers, and a debate hosted by Gary McCormick on whether: “We can all live to 120 years”.

Chris Ward

Serving the stars at Chateau on the Park DEDICATED: Chris Ward has been serving guests, including celebrities like Neil Diamond, at the Chateau on the Park for 37 years. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Chateau on the Park restaurant team leader Chris Ward has worked at the hotel for 37 years. Bridget Rutherford spoke to her about hosting the likes of the Dalai Lama and Neil Diamond, and finds out what has kept her there for so long Can you tell me what your role is at Chateau on the Park? Well, I’m a team leader in the restaurant and that seats about 100 people. We have a mix of house guests and a lot of outside tables as well, especially at lunch time. I like the job, early shift starts at 6am, then I have a break at lunch, then the late shift goes from 3pm until about midnight. I meet and greet, and process all the dockets and make sure everything’s running right. We see new people every day, especially tourists, and it makes you realise you live in paradise, because they think we do. When they go on tour and come back and it’s so good hearing where they’ve been. You’ve been working there for 37 years, what has made you

stay for this long? It all started when I was going part-time when my children were young. My first husband was a student so it was for a bit of extra money. He died when we were young and I was left with three children and the hotel really looked after me. They raised money and had a garage sale for

me and everything, and I always appreciated that. Have you always had the same role? It’s always been pretty much the same. It’s nice to give a few tips on where visitors can go when they’re here. I just got a beautiful letter from an American couple who stayed here,

saying how helpful my recommendations were. They left me all their contact details and he was in the FBI, so he left me an FBI badge to keep. Have you had famous people or regular visitors over the years? We’ve had people like Kenny Rogers, Neil Diamond and international cricket teams. Sir Graham Henry used to come here with his mother. If they are a politician, I always call them by their name, I think they quite like that. We have a lady who has been coming here for 18 years every Wednesday and Friday for lunch. She comes by herself, she lives just down the road and has two glasses of wine with her meal and reads a book. She’s got to know us and she’s such an interesting person. Did the famous people come along and eat in the restaurant? Kenny Rogers did. He was

really good and used to come in for breakfast and lunch. He was with his wife and was very sociable. Neil Diamond had room service. We had the Dalai Lama stay here, I think he was here for a conference. He stayed for about three nights – everybody was really excited about that. He had room service with a lot of natural food and fresh fruit. •Turn to page 22

We’ve recently had the crew from NASA’s SOFIA plane who stayed for about six weeks. We got to know them and they were very interesting. They gave us a big photo of the plane and signed it. Do you hold the record for longest-serving staff member? There was another woman Nelly Fisher who was here nudging 40 years; she’s retired now. We’ve have quite a few very longserving staff members. For you, what were some of the more notable events or groups you’ve hosted? We’ve had the Lions tours over the years. We had the Young Farmers about eight years ago and they took up the whole hotel, all 190 rooms, that was pretty huge. What are some of the more memorable moments? Just the team work really, we have a really good team and we’ve had quite a few couples working here, or who met here, who have gone on to marry. Any favourite groups to host? I think probably the Lions tour

fans because they’re just here for a good time really. They have their first beer at 11 in the morning, then they take their little trips. We had a few this year for the tour, even though we just had a Canterbury game here. There was a bit of friendly rivalry. The cricket teams were good. My colleague Donna remembers once when the team bus was waiting to leave, there was one player, we can’t remember who it was – he was part-Maori and was bleaching his hair blonde. The bus was being held up and he ran out with bleach blonde hair, it was funny. We also used to have

Air New Zealand staff stay. I was working the day the Erebus crash happened. The girls were down having their breakfast when the news came. It wasn’t very pleasant because they knew a lot of the people on board. It’s a bit of a Christchurch institution. Why do you think that is? I think a lot is because the grounds are really nice, and people don’t know about the garden until they arrive because it’s hidden from the road. The food is really good. They know all of us and they like to see familiar faces. Peter Beaven, the architect

who designed the chateau, came in after the earthquakes and said it was one of his favourite buildings. I said it stood up well to the earthquakes, and he said it was because there was far too much timber and far too many bolts. What do you like to do in your spare time? I love sewing but I only get two days off and I get pretty tired. I’m up at 5am and we walk between 10,000 to 15,000 steps a day. I’ve just turned 63 and will take a four to six-week break soon because I need to get a new hip. It’s probably worn out from all the walking. And your kids are grown up now? Yes, they are – my oldest grandson is 21. I have four grandchildren. My second husband and I have 10 children altogether. Has there been any naughty behaviour from guests over the years? Not really. I know one guy got

boozed one night and fell down the stairs. In saying that I’m not sure what happens in the bar in the early hours of the morning. Was there much damage in the earthquakes? The pipes burst and our huge big fridges that take two men to move toppled and everything fell out – it was just a mess. Liquefaction came up through the garden, but once the buildings were checked, we all came back to work to clean up. We were back up and running in about 10 days and we had to open for the emergency workers who were over from Queensland. They turned into long-term guests and we got to know them well.

2 | Fundraising

Pink-themed walk to raise funds for breast cancer Pink Star Walkers are getting ready to pound the streets for breast cancer at the 2017 Breast Cancer Foundation NZ (BCFNZ) Pink Star Walk in Christchurch. Events are also being held in Auckland and Wellington, taking place during October and into November as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, sponsored by Estee Lauder Companies. The annual fundraiser is a noncompetitive fun walk, with no training required before participating – just a willingness to join a group of enthusiastic women, men and children in support of those affected by breast cancer. The walks are held in the twilight hours, providing a unique experience. There is a party atmosphere at the finish line with entertainment provided; walkers are encouraged to celebrate and have a fun evening out together. The BCFNZ Pink Star Walks are open to all ages. The walking courses are a mix of five kilometre, 10km, or half marathon (21km) option, depending on location. In Christchurch there are the 5km and half marathon options. The course must be walked, not run, and participants are

encouraged to dress in pink, with many groups co-ordinating their costumes as a team and registering to fundraise. Registration is through the dedicated event website www.pinkstarwalk.co.nz. The registration fee covers the costs of holding the event and a small donation, with walkers encouraged to set up fundraising pages so friends and family can sponsor their efforts. Funds are raised through a combination of entry fees, personal sponsorships and donations. The Pink Star Walk includes a prewalk warm-up. Walkers follow the route marked by pink balloons, and rehydrate via water stations available around the course, manned by volunteers, who are there to support and encourage participants. At the conclusion of the walk there’s a festive atmosphere with music, entertainment, and prizes awarded to best-dressed individuals and teams, as well as spot prizes. “Our Pink Star Walks are a great way to show your support for friends, family or colleagues affected by breast cancer,” chief

executive at Breast Cancer Foundation NZ Evangelia Henderson says. “The money raised by the three events will help us achieve our vision of zero deaths from breast cancer by pushing for new frontiers in early detection, treatment and support.” Last year’s Pink Star Walks attracted over 4200 registered walkers and raised $500,000. This year the goal is to attract 5000 walkers, and raise a total of $600,000 towards the breast cancer cause. The Christchurch BCFNZ Pink Star Walk is being held on Saturday October 28, 2017. It starts at North Hagley Park at 3.30pm for the 21km walk (ages 18+ only) and 6pm for the 5km walk.

Leadership | 3 Flying is another passion in Rob Hoult’s life.

The importance of leadership

Following a 30-year career as an officer in the New Zealand Defence Force, Rob Hoult left the service and established his consultancy Team Leader Leadership Development Limited. Forward 50 talks to Rob about his career change, his passion for leadership and why we need good leaders across all sectors of our community.

You were in the defence force for 30 years what made you decide to step back into ‘civy street’? I’d run out of things to do! I’d made the decision back in the late ’90s to limit my career for the sake of gaining stability for my family, and had made the Selwyn District my home. The army had been fantastic in allowing me to work in niche areas and thus not have to move around over my last 10 years of service.

Were there challenges moving from military to civilian life and if so what were they? Surprisingly, there were very few challenges. My roles in the military had been quite autonomous, and most of them had required wide engagement across other government departments and organisations in the private sector. The hardest thing was leaving the security of a salary and accepting the uncertainty that goes with owning and running your own business. I’m pretty laid back, but I also must confess that I found people out of the military are a little more relaxed about keeping to time – which isn’t necessarily a bad thing of course. I also had to go and buy a lot more clothes…there’s something about the ease and convenience of having a uniform. That said, I love being able to wear the work clothes I want to wear.

When did you first discover your passion for leadership and what triggered it?

you’re in charge! I’ve never considered myself as a particularly good leader – like many others, I am pretty conscious of what I’ve got wrong, and it’s not good to get too big for your boots.

Poor leadership is disastrous to a team or group. The group won’t achieve the things it sets out to do, there will be conflict within the team, and the end result is that people leave the team because it does not give them what they both deserve and need as a human.

What are the essential characteristics of an effective leader and are these innate to a How did you develop your Team Leader person or can they be learnt? programme?

There have been literally thousands of books written on the topic of leadership, but that said, I do have my opinion. Leadership effectiveness is pretty much determined by personality – things like being curious and open-minded, conscientiousness and determination, being interested in and getting along with other people, and having enough confidence to take on challenges. So, whilst these things are to a degree innate, most people have some capacity for leadership, especially if they are willing to learn and listen to feedback. I also think it’s important that those in leadership roles understand that they are there to serve their followers, as much as their followers serve them.

Why do you see strong leadership as important – in the business community and in society as a whole? Leaders are the people that work out what needs to be done to make the world safer and more prosperous for their people (tribe, team, company, family, sports group etc.) and then harness the individual efforts of many into a strong and unified collective effort. It’s all about understanding what motivates the people that make up the team and pointing them in the right direction to get the important things done.

What difference can a good leader make and what are the outcomes if the quality of leadership in an organisation is less than ideal?

I first tasted the challenge and satisfaction of leadership as a high school student, both at school, and through the Air Training Corps. If I’m really honest, I think my attraction for leadership roles comes from A good leader makes all the difference. The symptoms being pretty purposeful, and wanting to achieve. It’s much easier to get the things done that you believe in when of a good leader are a highly performing team of people

I spent over a decade designing and running leader and team development activities and courses for all levels of the New Zealand Army and the wider defence force. This has given me a very wide perspective on how to grow capable leaders and high-performing teams. I also had the privilege of leading military teams both in New Zealand and in multi-national contexts overseas throughout my 30-year career. Leaders and teams have similar characteristics no matter what organisation they exist in. Once I understand the culture and context of a client organisation, I am able to use all of my expertise and experience to develop world-class team and leader development opportunities for my clients. One of my highlights this year has been working with the successful Crusaders Super Rugby team. My role was to help them be the very best team members that they could be.

Are there any leaders in New Zealand – in any field – that you particularly admire, and if so why? There are so many outstanding New Zealand leaders that it’s hard to single one out. Two that I will mention are locals – Scott Roberston, the Crusaders coach, who has a very expressive style, yet has a big heart – he completely understands what makes each and every one of his players tick. The other is Peter Beggs, the boss of Antarctica New Zealand. Peter is an incredible ambassador for Christchurch and New Zealand, and leads through very strong values, a sense of fairness and a keen curiosity for possibilities and how we can build a better New Zealand.

French chic for stylish picnics

A new recipe book published by Australian publisher Smith Street Books features a selection of French picnic recipes for s stylish outdoor feast. The first book by Australian self-taught cook and food writer Suzy Ashford, Le Picnic reimagines outdoor lunching as a chic activity that’s worth putting a little more effort into. Rather than taking along a sandwich and a flask of coffee to your next picnic, why not make it a bacon and leek quiche, a beautiful potato and pork sausage galette or cherry tomato tartlets? As Ashford shows, classic French recipes can be easily transported and are not too complex, or requiring hard-to-find ingredients and advanced cookery skills. Le Picnic recipes include drinks, nibbles, more substantial fare, zesty salads and delicate sweet treats. Start your picnic with a glass of Champagne with fresh white peach syrup. Nibble on caramelised onion tarts, a slice of Camembert tart and a witlof salad. And finish with a selection of delectable treats including fresh raspberry tartlets and white chocolate macarons. Be transported to Paris at your next outdoor feast – maybe during Cup & Show Week. Le Picnic: Chic Food On-The-Go by Suzy Ashford. Published by Smith Street Books. RRP $35.

A festival of garden design The lack of a garden show in the Garden City will potentially prompt Christchurch garden enthusiasts to take a trip north in November for the Auckland Garden DesignFest. Featuring some of New Zealand’s best professionally designed gardens, this unique weekend festival, being held on November 25-26, allows visitors to visit up to 20 private gardens across Auckland. Throughout the two days, the designers will be on site to inspire visitors, who will have the chance to lean more about the creative process behind each garden. Auckland Garden DesignFest joint chairperson Rose Thodey says: “We always try to have a diverse range of gardens that highlight the benefit of good design and showcase different styles and sizes of gardens, from tiny courtyards to large expanses, often with vastly different budgets to match. “We feel confident that we have truly delivered on that this year and can’t wait to share them with visitors in the full flush of spring.” The biennial festival, which is organised jointly by the Garden Design Society of New Zealand and Rotary Newmarket,

raises funds for Ronald McDonald House, Garden to Table Trust and the Rotary Newmarket Charitable Trust. Tickets for the Auckland Garden DesignFest can be purchased from iTICKET, plus various garden retailers and onsite at the garden gate.

The art of garden design

Landscape designer Joanna Hamilton grew up on a farm in Canterbury and went to boarding school in Christchurch. She says nature, wildlife, plants and the changing seasons were very much part of her life from an early age. Following university, travel and teaching, Joanna had children and during their early years developed a passion for gardening. After moving to Auckland with her family she returned to teaching while “coming to grips” with a humid climate and developing a love affair with subtropical gardening. She decided on a career change and studied landscape design at Unitec for two years.

What do you enjoy about it? Studying garden design opened up so much more than an expanded plant knowledge – it developed an awareness of space, form, proportion, the interplay of light and shade. There was much to learn about construction materials, hard landscaping elements as well as soil, climate as well as building codes and standards. My love for plants remains paramount – how plants can be employed to create form and structure in a garden, provide screening and shelter as well as texture and colour is always to the fore in my planning.

Joanna has been designing gardens across the Auckland area for 17 years. Her projects include large and small city Do you have a signature or gardens, courtyard and apartment gardens, country and coastal properties. She is one favourite style? of 19 talented garden designers selected Not really, although despite Auckland to participate in the 2017 Auckland verging on the subtropical, I do like to Garden DesignFest. see some seasonality in a garden.

What drew you to garden design?

Living in Christchurch, I had loved everything about the English garden style, which suited the nature and character of the city and worked well with the climate and marked seasons. Needing to get to grips with the warmth and moistness of Auckland, the lack of clear seasonal demarcation and the fact that a whole new plant palette was possible, I saw an opportunity to expand my knowledge and apply it in a professional way as well as developing another personal garden.

gardens in the past, but more recently have moved towards creating gardens with less of a definite ‘theme’. I enjoy working with families to make gardens that are relaxed and useful and happy places to be in. These frequently include vegetable beds and fruiting trees, places to sit and places for children to play.

Do you have favourite or particularly memorable projects? Creating gardens for families are often the most satisfying projects.

One aspect of Joanna Hamilton’s entry in the Auckland Garden DesignFest.

What was your inspiration for your entry in this year’s Garden DesignFest? By DesignFest standards it’s a small garden with the largest useable area fortunately on the north side. I wanted to make the most of the other much smaller spaces around the house and to make some visual impact, especially on the eastern side, which the kitchen and living room look out to.

What should people think about when downsizing into a smaller section? • Make the most of all available space both horizontal and vertical. Even on the shady side of a house where the space may be narrow and confined, an ambience can be created, so that it’s a pleasure to pass through or to look out on from inside. • Don’t feel everything has to be smaller — a few large planters/pots make more impact than myriad little ones.

dimensional space that’s so important in small gardens.

What do you think is the biggest challenge of downsizing? Deciding what you don’t need anymore, resisting buying more things you don’t need and as far as the garden is concerned not creating a cluttered feel especially on decks and patios.

Top tips for downsizing and utilising smaller sections/spaces • Use fewer pots and planters. • Use a few large ones over numerous small pots. • Choose appropriate furniture for the space – you may need to downsize outdoor furniture. • If possible, create two outdoor sitting spaces and make one for eating and one for low lounge-type seating. • Apartment balconies don’t provide much room for this, but a table that seats four to six (round is efficient) and a couple of low relaxing seats and a coffee table can usually be accommodated.

• Small deciduous trees like maples and Cercis are useful, providing seasonal • Vertical planters can be purchased interest in spring and autumn, shade in summer but not in winter and importantly or made if you’re inventive, to provide interest and subtle division of space. give some height and a sense of three-

Exercise for a healthy heart Cardiovascular disease (including heart, stroke and blood vessel disease) is still the leading cause of death in New Zealand, accounting for 33 per cent of deaths annually. Every 90 minutes a New Zealander dies from heart disease, with 172,000 New Zealanders currently living with heart disease and limited by its impacts. To onlookers it can seem straightforward to make changes with the threat of disease or early death, but for many of the New Zealanders who are inactive or at risk of heart disease due to insufficient exercise, or unhealthy food choices, making the change to a healthier lifestyle can often be in the ‘too hard basket’. The statistics are alarming but are often not enough reason for an individual to take the first step to change habits, even if health issues are starting to arise.

get moving is by offering the support and encouragement they need. This could be offering to exercise with them, letting them know how easy it can be and that they are able to work at their own pace. Exercising with them could be something as simple as a walk or a stretching session to begin, or you could offer to take them along to your gym. Positivity works better at motivating people, so focus on achievements rather than stumbles. Encourage them to talk to or get information from someone who can give them good advice, either from a reputable online resource, or from a qualified expert. The first visit with an expert need not involve any actual exercise. Many exercise professionals will offer an introductory meeting to find out how it all works.

Baby boomers getting keener on keeping fit Christchurch is seeing a substantial increase in demand from the older ageing population for fitness, exercise and personal trainers, according to ExerciseNZ chief executive Richard Beddie. He says they now know not only that exercise is needed as people age, but also why this is the case. There are many providers catering for the ageing market, something that was rare 15 years ago. Waikato University health and behaviour doctoral candidate Wendy Sweet says today’s ageing population, especially in the developed world, have many advantages over previous generations – not least access to research into ways to stave off age-related conditions. Mr Beddie says Baby Boomers who have not yet retired are in an excellent position to take advantage of significant positive benefits of exercise as well as increase both their life expectancy and their enjoyment of their later years.

people who are already in the older age demographic, starting now will have huge benefits, and the corollary of that is the earlier the better. People should think of exercise as their body’s retirement savings system – the sooner people start, and the more they do, the better they will be. “The key thing in starting now is do so in manageable micro-steps. In many cases finding an activity that the person enjoys is key, be it dancing, tai chi, yoga, Pilates or going to the gym. While there is a lot of information and guidelines about how much activity to do, in the short term the focus should be on forming a habit of being active – and using this to build towards long-term regular exercise.” Mr Beddie says hundreds of Kiwi personal trainers, gyms and fitness facilities are seeing a surge in older people seeking to get fitter.

“ExerciseNZ is excited that there has never been so much interest in how Kiwis are ageing. With the last of the Baby “Living longer is not enough anymore. We Boomers heading into retirement over the know people want to live better and longer, next decade, they are not only the next by being active now. generation of older people but they will be “We believe the key message should be the fittest ever in our country’s history,” Mr regardless of age, start now.

Law/puzzLes | 9

Property ownership issues For many New Zealanders, their home is their biggest asset so it’s worth taking some time to think about the way you own your home. There are two common legal forms of property ownership in New Zealand. A majority of couples own their properties as joint tenants. The significant feature of this form of ownership is that on the death of the first spouse, the property automatically passes to the survivor by way of a rule of law known as Survivorship. It doesn’t matter what’s in your Will, your surviving partner will take the entire property in his or her own name. The second common form of legal ownership where two (or more) people own property together is as tenants in common. Quite simply, this form of ownership allows for property to be owned in distinct shares – most commonly as tenants in common in equal shares. Significantly, the rule of survivorship does not apply and as a consequence what happens to your share of the property on your death depends entirely on what you state in your Will.

Life Interest Will If property is as tenants in common, you are free to leave your share of the property as you choose in your Will. Often, a couple will leave a Life Interest in their share of the property to their spouse or partner. This is called a Life Interest Will. A Life Interest Will leaves your share of the property to your Executor(s) / Trustee(s) with instructions that they AWAITING COPY Ad Number: FG10447 Artwork: FG5448 Size: 18x4 Description: HARMANS LAWYERS Account: Forward 50 Colour: F Filename: FG5448

allow your spouse or partner to live in the property for the remainder of his or her lifetime. Upon the ultimate death of the survivor, your share of the property then goes to the final or residuary beneficiaries of your Will.

Residential Care Subsidies As discussed above, if property is owned as joint tenants, on the death of the first spouse or partner, the whole property passes to the survivor. Should the surviving spouse or partner require longterm residential care at a later date, they will have to meet the Ministry of Social Development’s (the ‘Ministry’s’) criteria before qualifying for a Residential Care Subsidy.

Under current Ministry policy, only the income from a life interest is assessed in an application for a Residential Care Subsidy. There are strong anti-deprivation clauses in the Social Security Act 1964. Any decision to place your home into a tenants in common structure must be for legitimate estate planning purposes and not as a device to qualify for a Residential Care Subsidy. Changing the way you own your home must also be done in conjunction with the rules and regulations set in place by the Ministry. As with all areas of law, it is important that you seek good advice from a team who understand how this area may impact on you. At Harmans we have experience dealing with estate planning strategies.

new-generation OF Suzuki Swift By Ross Kiddie Bang on cue a new-generation Suzuki Swift has landed. If my memory serves me well, the last time a complete newcomer arrived here was mid-way through 2011. Sure, there have been upgrades and enhancements along its lifecycle, but a model with a completely new shape and new engineering has been a while coming. Yet, Suzuki know the value of Swift in the markets where it is well-established, and the concept hasn’t been tinkered with, it is still the cheeky, small liftback that will slot into its market segment, easily filling the role of its predecessor. The new model arrives in four variations with the option of manual transmission in the entry-level car (GL). It lists at $19,990; $2000 adds automatic transmission. An automaticonly GLX lists at $24,500, while a sporty RS model, sits at $25,990. The latter is a three-cylinder 1-litre model which has a turbocharger to promote that sporty feel. The test car was the latter and I’m not convinced it will be the volume seller. The entry-level and mid-grade models share a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder engine, and I’m picking the GLX will be the car of choice. I’m due to drive it soon but in the interim the wee turbo three-potter is a great deal of fun and, once again, I must relate to the honesty of Suzuki’s small engine. My old work car was a Suzuki Alto and I just adored the sound and harmonics of the engine. The new Swift’s unit is obviously quite a lot more refined and quieter, but you can’t help but notice that there is something out of the ordinary. Suzuki rate it with 82kW and 160Nm. Peak power is

A lot of the latter can be put down to the fact that the new Swift as a series is quite light (945kg), therefore there isn’t a lot of load going on the tyres, which promote a neutral handling feel. I took the test car on my usual Hororata loop, and although it isn’t a demanding drive the Swift RS quickly grew on me as a competent highway Add into that a miserly 5.1-litre per 100km (55mpg) combined cycle fuel usage average and you have a car that is traveller. both fun and thrifty. It works quietly and will corner briskly without complaint, developed low in the rev band at 5500rpm, while maximum torque is available all of the way from 1500rpm to 4000rpm, which means a broad spread of power. These are healthy figures that will promote a 9.5sec standstill to 100km/h acceleration time, which is pretty good for a 998cc engine.

Unlike the continuously variable transmission in the 1.2-litre Swift, the RS gets a traditional six-speed automatic, which incorporates steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters that enhance the sporty experience.

HOLLANDS

The new Swift series has been built with the latest safety advances and new technology to improve safety. I particularly like the emergency braking back-up that detects an imminent collision if it appears the driver isn’t going to react in time.

Of course, if you select the standard drive mode the engine management protocols provide the impetus to suit each and every driving condition, but the point I’m making is In terms of the interior, the controls are located sensibly that if you feel like a spirited drive, select the manual setting and the in-cabin detailing is fresh and high quality. It’s a and the wee RS takes on a different demeanour. mixture of the successful formula Suzuki has developed in The engine responds willingly, and while the turbo boost its small cars along with the additional components that isn’t dramatic there is a long sensation of forced induction, modern car buyers are demanding.

Chicken breasts stuffed with ricotta and sun-dried tomato Chicken lends itself to a variety of flavours. This recipe helps to extend the chicken portion while at the same time offering an infusion of flavours and moisture into the chicken breasts, which also helps to tenderise the meat. It can be served hot with this mustard sauce and vegetables or sliced cold for salads and sandwiches. IngREdIEntS 2 chicken breasts To make the stuffing: 4 Tbsp fresh, whole grain breadcrumbs 4 Tbsp ricotta cheese 2 Tbsp sun-dried tomato, sliced 1 tsp lemon zest, finely sliced

1 Tbsp basil, finely chopped 2 tsp slivered almonds or hazelnuts 100mls water To make the mustard sauce 75mls lemon juice 1 Tbsp cornflour 1 tsp whole seed mustard 75ml water 1tsp honey

MEtHod Cut the chicken breast in half cross-wise then slice each piece of chicken almost in half to form a “butterfly like” steak Combine all the stuffing ingredients except the water into a bowl and stir well. Place 2 Tbsp of the stuffing onto half of each butterfly of chicken then close to form a parcel. Secure each stuffed parcel of chicken with a toothpick or string. Place the stuffed chicken breasts into a shallow baking dish with the water. Cover with foil and bake for 45-50 minutes at 180°C until cooked. Remove the toothpicks/string carefully from the stuffed chicken and set the chicken aside in a warming drawer. To make the mustard sauce pour the juices from the baking dish into a glass ovenproof jug, add the lemon juice, cornflour mixed with the water, mustard and honey and microwave on high stirring as it thickens. Serves 4. Each serving contains: Energy 960 kJ/ 230 kcal, Protein 31 g, Fat 6.5g, Saturated fat 2.4g, Carbohydrate 9.6g, Sugar 3g, Dietary fibre 1g, Sodium 185mgs vARIAtIonS After squeezing the lemon for the sauce I usually put the remainder of the whole lemon into the baking dish with the stuffed chicken breasts and water and cover while it cooks to draw out more of the lemon flavour.

Gardening It’s hard to go past pretty petunias If you’ve got an area in your garden where you want to create a mass of colour, you can’t go past petunias. They are prolific bloomers that, if looked after, will continue to flower all summer. You can choose from plain purple, red, pink or white. How about purple with dashes of white like on the primetime violet star? Or the duo red and white variety which, like the name suggests, produces a beautiful mixture of red and white flower?

Not sure what colour to select? Then try a mixed bundle. Don’t have a big garden to fill with bedding flowers? Don’t worry about that either. All petunias really need to flourish is a sunny, free-draining spot. They grow equally as well in pots and hanging baskets making them perfect for just about any garden. Once you’ve selected your seedlings and sunny spot to plant, simply dig small holes, around 3cm deep and 25cm apart, and plant. Be sure to watch out for slugs

or trying using our beer bait. It also pays to keep an eye out for aphids. If you spot these pesky pests, a general insecticide or spray of organic alternative, neem oil will sort that problem. And make sure to keep them watered. If you’re not sure how thirsty they are, stick your finger in the soil 2cm deep. If the soil is dry, they will need a drink. Then sit back and wait just four to six weeks for your beautiful petunias to bloom. Remember to pick off dead heads to BLOOMS: If pink isn’t your colour try a mixed bundle of petunia encourage re-flowering. seedlings. Read us online 24/7 at starcanterbury.co.nz

Growing your own nutritious vegetables is good for your health and your pocket! To get the best cropping vegetable garden, ensure your soil is well prepared and nutrient rich before planting.

QUESTION

I bought a lemon plant a couple of years ago and it initially flowered vigorously. I was advised to thin out the flowering buds or lemons to stimulate growth during the early stage of planting. However, the plant was not producing many leaves or new shoots and continued to grow more flowering buds. Subsequently, I transfered the plant to another sunny spot hoping it would respond well with sunlight. Instead, the whole plant started to shed its leaves leaving only the flowering buds. What should I do now?

Today’s winning question came from Jonathan Tan. Congratulations!

ANSWER

Generally, citrus trees do not like being transplanted. Physically they shed their leaves quite quickly and often die as too many roots are cut or they have dried out at any time after being shifted. Always remember that in Christchurch, like many colder parts of NZ, it’s marginal to successfully grow citrus trees. Not only frost but also very cold, wet soils are quite foreign to citrus trees.

PRIZE PACK!

BE IN TO WIN!

From your description, we would assume the orginal planting site was not perfect for a lemon tree. It was possibly a little shady or probably too wet in the winter months. Unfortunately, now with no leaves on the plant, it can no longer photosynthesise and therefore sadly, it will probably die over the next few months. If you decide to plant another citrus tree and cannot find the perfect spot in your garden e.g well drained soil, full sun and protected from cold winter winds, consider growing it in a large container. This can be moved for protection in winter and to take advantage of sun during the summer months.

Every colour imaginable with dahlias „„ By Paul Hoek DAHLIAS ARE one of the best value garden plants for summer colour. Planted in spring, they will flower from December right through summer to late autumn. Native to Mexico and first introduced into Europe in the 1600s, dahlias have been so extensively cross-bred over hundreds of years that the dahlia family now includes a large range of flower types, plant sizes and every colour imaginable. Dahlias are sorted into main

groups according to their flower shape. The most common types are the cactus dahlia, with a spiky appearance and decorative dahlias which include a range of forms from tight ball-shaped flowers through to more open forms called water lily dahlias. As well as these two, other common types include dwarf forms ideal for borders or potting, and single flowered forms. Dahlias prefer a full sun location, but will tolerate some shade. Drainage is very important as the tubers do not like be-

ing water logged for any length of time. In high rainfall or wet areas they can easily be grown by using slightly raised beds to help with drainage. Plant the tubers with the crown just below the surface of the soil and water in. Little attention is required during growing other than to make sure they’re watered if conditions get quite dry. Removing old flower heads will keep the plants looking tidy and helps the plant to keep flowering to the end of the season. The flowers can be picked for

indoor use but will not continue to open off the plant, so should be picked only when they are open already. Dahlia plants go through different stages of growth depending on the day length. During long day length in mid-summer the plants produce a lot of top growth and flowers. Decreasing day length during autumn triggers the plants into tuber production below the ground. The tubers prepare the plant for winter dormancy and store energy ready for growing again next spring.

BOLD: Dahlias come in a large range of types, sizes and colours.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

SPRING ONION PANCAKES Ingredients 250g Plain flour, plus extra for dusting 80 ml Boiling water 70 ml Cold water 2 Tbsp Vegetable oil 1 bunch Spring onion, finely chopped 1 tsp Sesame seeds Directions Put the flour in a bowl and add the boiling water, stirring with chopsticks. This is called ‘burning’ the flour. Give it a mix

and once it has cooled enough, continue mixing with your hands. Add the cold water, a quarter at a time, and continue mixing. When mixed thoroughly, take the dough out of the bowl and knead on a flour-covered bench. You may need to add more flour as you knead. Continue kneading until the dough is shiny and your hands and the bench are clear of dough. Roll the dough into a ball and place in a bowl covered with cling film. Seat aside for about half an hour. Take a piece of dough about the size of your fist and roll it out on the bench into a circle about 15cm in diameter. Spread some

vegetable oil over the dough, then sprinkle over the chopped spring onion. Sprinkle over the sesame seeds. Roll the pancake into a tight cylinder, then coil it around into a circle (like a caterpillar rolling itself into a circle). With a rolling pin, flatten this circle into a pancake again. Add oil to your frying pan and heat to a medium-high heat. Add the pancake to the frying pan and fry until golden, then flip and cook the other side until golden and crisp. Serve as a side dish with chilli oil or chilli sauce or your favourite Asian-inspired dip. Also great at breakfast time.

Fido-friendly options in Queenstown „„ By Mike Yardley WITH SPRING in bloom across our adventure capital, the razored ridgeline of the Remarkables was still flecked in snow on my recent swing through Queenstown, accentuating the resort town’s cinematic good looks. The gracious old lady of the lake, TSS Earnslaw, was faithfully plying Wakatipu’s waters, but eager for a fresh scoop of floating pleasure, I boarded Southern Discoveries’ gleaming catamaran. They operate daily excursions to Mt Nicholas Station, one of New Zealand’s most historic, family-run Merino sheep stations. Spanning 40,500ha of golden high country terrain, the 45min scenic cruise down Lake Wakatipu affords glorious vistas of Mt Earnslaw, Cecil Peak, and the tucked away valley beneath Mt Creighton, where the Hollywood set have reportedly purchased homes, including Arnie Schwarzenegger and John Travolta. Arriving at Mt Nicholas Station, you have a variety of add-on sightseeing options including a 4WD safari, a 2hr high country walk or the woolshed experience. I opted for the latter, which was a wonderfully hands-on exposition of merino wool’s journey

FAST FACTS •I booked my pooch-friendly Queenstown accommodation through Booking.com which has an excellent filter, highlighting lodging options for pets, in the destination of your choice. It’s such a great time-saver, eliminating the fuss of having to check with the property whether dogs are welcome. By the way, there are actually 14 listed pet-friendly options in Queenstown. With nearly 6000 New Zealand accommodation options listed, Booking.com properties include an array of options from hotels and apartments to holiday homes and campsites. Whether you’re on the website or via the app, Booking.com is easy to use with deals and total flexibility. www.booking.com

SCENIC: Cruise to Mt Nicholas Station on the Southern Discoveries’ catamaran Spirit of Queenstown.

from fresh fleece to top-end clothing. All Mt Nicholas Station merino wool is sold to Icebreaker. As a premium wine-growing region, swooned over for its pinot noir, a swirl of wine trail tours can whisk you across the vineyards of the Gibbston Valley and beyond. If you’re short on time, visit The Winery, a one-stop-tasting shop in the heart of Queenstown where you can taste over 80 wines, including several dozen delicious pinot noirs. All of the industry’s rockstars are showcased, including Valli Bannockburn, Mt Difficulty,

Black Ridge and Amisfield. Complement your wine sampling, by grazing from a flavourful platter of local cheese, salami and olives. Speaking of food, you’ve surely heard about the insatiably cultish following that consumes the footpath of Shotover St, outside Fergburger. Some locals are particularly huffy about the constant tangle of humanity crowding the footpath outside the burger store, which is open 21 hours a day. Phone ahead and track your order on the website. These decadently delicious gourmet creations are sinfully good. My pick?

The Bun Laden – fiery, succulent and you’ll be back for more. Trending noticeably amongst many Kiwis holidaying within New Zealand is the desire to trip away with your dogs. I accompanied my parents and their two furry friends on their recent short-break in Queenstown. The resort town probably isn’t top of mind when it comes to affordable paw-friendly holiday destinations, but a highly recommended roost, within walking distance of the town centre is Pinewood Lodge. Walking options abound in Queenstown and we gave the pooches some solid workouts on a variety of trails including the stunning Mt Creighton track and the gorgeous loops around Queenstown Gardens and

Marine Pde. Heading east from the town centre, the Frankton Arm Walkway is an absolute heart-stealer, with its unobstructed lake and mountain views. We enjoyed coffee and a sticky date scone, with crème and raspberries, at the characterful – and pooch-friendly – Boat Shed Café & Bistro. From The Boat Shed, the gravel walkway wends its way along the shoreline to Frankton, passing a quaint parade of rustic Kiwi cribs – a laid-back world away from the glitz and pretence of some of Queenstown’s more recent glamour pad developments. They’re anything but flashy. It is such a great antidote to savour this unmolested vestige of old Queenstown.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

Experienced team committed to customer service

If experience counts in motor vehicle servicing and repairs, then Beach Road Tyre & Auto must be a top choice for motorists needing work done on their vehicle. Owner of the business, Nick Coultas, has 27 years’ experience at Beach Road and he has a staff of 10, all of whom are highly experienced with a wealth of knowledge. They repair and service all types of vehicle, including those under warranty. “If your vehicle is still under warranty and needs something done, you don’t need

to take it to the dealer – you can bring it in to us. We have the latest equipment to service all late-model vehicles, including five computerised scanners,” Nick says. These days they are servicing hybrid and even full electric vehicles as well, he says. Servicing and re-gassing air-conditioning systems is a specialty at Beach Road Tyre & Auto Centre, while, as the name suggests, tyres are a key part of the business. They carry a huge range of tyres for all makes and models of cars, including four-wheel

drives, and also do wheel alignments, which ensure tyres last longer and save fuel. “If you want it right, see us,” Nick says. Now that later-model vehicles require a WOF once every 12 months rather than every six months, it is important for drivers to keep an eye on their tyres for wear in between warrants and have them replaced if they are getting worn, Nick says. “We are seeing a lot of very dangerous tyres, so if you’re unsure how to check them call in and see us.”

„„ By Ross Kiddie I OPENED a recent email from Subaru New Zealand, it was directed mostly to Subaru owners who were travelling to the Turoa skifield in the North Island. As a gesture of thanks for buying into the brand, the company had secured a VIP parking area for Subaru vehicles. I’ve often written about the value Subarus are on a skifield access road and my latest evaluation is no different. The weekend I had the new Impreza XV for evaluation, the weather was foul – howling wind, freezing rain and snow down to low levels. On the day I was testing, snow drifts had lined the roadside and conditions were marginal. It’s not the first time that I’ve evaluated a Subaru under these conditions, a few years back I had conquered the Lindis Pass on a drive programme in near white-out conditions with snow settling on the road several centimetres deep. As a group we were allowed past the point where the road was closing simply because Subaru’s symmetrical four-wheeldrive system is highly regarded. The point I’m making in both these scenarios is that when you need grip at its most critical point, Subaru delivers. The new XV is exactly that – brand new. It arrives here in two value-packed models, the Sport and Premium. The Sport lists at $34,990, the Premium adds $39,990. Alongside its Impreza stablemate at $29,000, the series – Impreza and XV – are the bargains of the 2-litre market in New Zealand. That needs to be reinforced, especially if you add into the equation the drive system, 2-litre engine and the level of specification, there’s little else on the market which comes close. The test car was the topgrade Premium, although it gets all the cool stuff like leather trim, heated seats, sat nav and sunroof, I’d far prefer the entry level model. I’ve driven it for a long distance and it stacks up as the most desirable, it is just as competent as the Premium and it doesn’t miss out on much, it even gets Subaru’s clever Eyesight safety technology

SUBARU XV: Highly-regarded four-wheel-drive system.

The XV is described by Subaru as a crossover vehicle. It’s not your traditional sport utility vehicle but more of a station wagon on steroids, simply because it is Impreza hatchbackbased. • Price – Subaru Impreza XV, $39,990 • Dimensions – Length, 4465mm; width, 1800mm; height, 1615mm • Configuration – Four-cylinder, four-wheel-drive, 1995cc, 115kW, 196Nm, continuously variable automatic • Performance – 0-100km/h, 9.6.sec • Fuel usage – 7l/100km

Its cross-country potential is thanks to ground clearance raised to 220mm; that being the case, it challenges the orthodox SUV, and with technology such as X-mode built into the vehicle it is a definite offroad vehicle. X-mode is a complex array of management programs which enhance control and stability on loose surfaces, it also works in conjunction with hill descent control. I used X-mode when exiting a slippery downhill driveway at a friend’s farm and it certainly puts the driver at ease, the entire four-wheel-drive system is there to provide grip in the trickiest of situations. That is the essence of the symmetrical drive system in the first instance, grip on all surfaces is enhanced and even in dry conditions you can feel the benefit of power to all corners. The Impreza as a series has confident dry road handling manners, it can be pushed hard into a corner and it will respond with much composure. Even though its sits tall to provide the ground

clearance I mentioned earlier, the XV’s spring and damper rates, and suspension engineering in the first instance, clamp down on body movement, the XV’s handling is quite unrealistic, it’s no exaggeration to say it is athletic and nimble. Under the bonnet sits a horizontally-opposed engine of 1995cc, it drives through a smooth continuously variable automatic transmission. The engine is a quad-camshaft unit, and even though it has been Subaru’s hallmark for many years it is very much state-of-the-art thanks to continual development and refinement, particularly in the area of fuel economy. The important figures go something like this: It is rated with a 115kW power output with 196Nm of torque – both healthy figures. From a standstill it will race to 100km/h in 9.6sec, and in terms of economy, Subaru list it with a seven-litre per 100km (40mpg) combined cycle average. At the media launch of the XV I had a solitary drive from Napier to Auckland, on that journey the trip computer was constantly listing a 7.7l/100km (37mpg) average and a instantaneous figure of 5l/100km (56mpg) at a steady 100km/h (engine speed 1550rpm). During my latest drive I didn’t quite match that average, nor Subaru’s, but at 8.2l/100km (35mpg) it was quite close and reinforces Subaru’s resolve to be competitive in the fuel usage stakes. I’m greatly taken with the Impreza XV, well actually, the entire series as a whole. It is quality product and one which will look after those inside when conditions are at their worst. The XV looks bold and aggressive with its chunky wheels and masculine styling. Make mine orange.

Armstrong pushes for Italian Panther, former Hornet title after defeat in Germany make NZ 18s side „„ By Gordon Findlater THINGS MAY not have gone to plan in Germany at the weekend, but Marcus Armstrong is making quite the noise in Europe. Going into the final round of the German formula four championship at Hockenheim, the 17-year-old held a 1.5-point lead over teammate Juri Vips from Estonia. However, Armstrong didn’t get off to the best start, suffering technical problems in qualifying, which forced him to start the first two races from the back of the field. But he managed two top-10 finishes to still be in with a sniff of the championship going into the final race on Sunday. The talented Christchurch driver started the final race from pole position and finished second, but Vips took out third to win the championship by 4.5 points – the tightest margin in its history. “It’s so hard getting this close and yet not winning it. On the other hand, I have to be satisfied, because it was my first season and we have been very

A New Zealand 18s Select team was also named. They got the first crack at the Australian Schoolboys on Tuesday night, going down 18-26 in Rotorua. Papanui Tigers prop Seth Tauamiti was among the tryscorers in the game. The Warriors-bound forward’s impressive physicality saw him conduct several hit-ups during the game. He will join the Warriors at the end of the year. The New Zealand 18s v Australian Schoolboys game will be a curtain-raiser for the national premiership match between the Canterbury Bulls and Akarana Falcons at Trust Arena.

„„ By Gordon Findlater HORNBY Panthers second rower Jordan Riki and Parramatta Eels halfback Joseph Taipari – a former Halswell Hornet – have made the New Zealand 18s rugby league side to play the Australian Schoolboys in Auckland on Saturday. The team was picked following the New Zealand Resident 18s 28-10 win over a junior New Zealand team made up of Australian-based NRL players. Riki will join Taipari in Australia next year. The 17-yearold was scouted by the Brisbane Broncos in 2015 and will link up with the NRL club at the end of the year.

FOCUSED: Marcus Armstrong (inset) is looking to consolidate his lead in the Italian championship after narrowly missing out on the German formula four title.

successful,” said Armstrong. He would much rather have the title, but Armstrong joins a big name in finishing second. Last year’s runner-up in the German championship was Mick Schumacher – son of Michael Schumacher – who is now racing in the European formula three championship and building towards formula one.

Armstrong still has a chance of finishing his European summer in spectacular fashion. With two rounds remaining in the Italian formula four championship, he holds a 17-point lead over Dutch driver Job van Uitert. The next round of the Italian championship takes place at Mugello on October 8.

YOUNG STAR: Jordan Riki will take on the Australian Schoolboys on Saturday.

Taumalolo’s journey to the grand-final NORTH QUEENSLAND snared a young Jason Taumalolo for a stack of pizzas and loose change. Now the giant Kiwis lock will be leading the Cowboys forward pack into the grand-final on Sunday. Former players are among those who believe Taumalolo has redefined what a lock should do in the modern game, and he now has a $10 million-plus contract to back up the high praise.

Cowboys recruitment officer Clint Zammit is the man who changed history. He spotted Taumalolo as a 14-year-old playing alongside older kids in a touring New Zealand junior outfit which crushed a Townsville high school team 10 years ago. With the tourists departing the next morning, Zammit had to act fast. He was in luck, because Taumalolo and his 15-year-old brother Warner were accompa-

nied by their dad. “The way he carried the footy impressed me. I knew if he goes home, I’ll never see this kid again,” Zammit told foxsports.com.au. “I raced back and did some paperwork and met them at a pizza shop. We met him about 9.30pm. “They had about eight pizzas and I had him signed for four years at about 11 o’clock. We brought him out the next year.”

Warner, who ended up playing under-20s for Parramatta, was part of the deal, at their dad’s insistence. The price – $1500. Taumalolo has gone on to sign a unique deal with the Cowboys, for nearly $11 million over 10 years. “The heat killed me,” Taumalolo said, recalling his arrival in Townsville. “I didn’t get used to the heat until about three years later. I went out of my comfort

zone leaving New Zealand. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.” With legendary Aussie test prop Matt Scott injured, Taumalolo has provided extraordinary metres for the Cowboys, averaging around 200m per game. Two years ago, Taumalolo knocked back a big offer from the Warriors, and they reportedly had another crack this year. –NZ Herald

What do you have to tell potential buyers when selling your house? When you’ve lived in a property for a while it’s easy to forget some of its quirks. You might be used to the fact that the front gate doesn’t shut properly, or that the bathroom windows need fixing. Any potential buyers will be able to spot issues like this when they inspect the property – and can choose to fix them if they purchase it. But it’s a lot harder for them to identify other things you might have forgotten about, like the fact that you didn’t bother getting the appropriate consents from the council when you built the deck 25 years ago. You might think the deck is fine, but you need to front up about the consent issue, not least because it’s the decent thing to do. “When you’re selling a property you are legally obliged to share all the relevant information about it,” says Kevin LampenSmith, chief executive of the Real Estate Agents Authority (REAA). “If work has been done on the property during your ownership, either by you or someone else, the standard terms of the sale and purchase agreement require the seller to warrant that any legally required permits or consents were obtained. If you knowingly fail to disclose unconsented works, you are in breach of contract. This means there is a risk that the sale could fall over or that you could run into problems prior to settlement. Even worse, the buyer could take you to court for breach of warranty.” Your first step should be to discuss the issue with your licensed real estate agent and your lawyer, Lampen-Smith says. They are likely to advise that you are better off to disclose anything unconsented, or to strike out the applicable vendor warranties clause in the sale and purchase agreement. “Once the real estate agent is aware of the situation, they are bound by their Code of Conduct to disclose it to any prospective buyers. If you tell them about the deck or any other issues to do with the property, but ask them not to tell anyone, they are required to stop working for you.” Similar disclosure issues can arise over more sensitive matters. Some sellers worry about whether or not to tell an agent or prospective buyers about an issue that doesn’t relate to the physical state of the property – such as it being the scene of

a murder, suicide or violent crime. Here, deciding what to disclose is less straightforward, Lampen-Smith says. “The REAA advises agents to take a cautious approach and to consider each situation on its facts, while recognising the individual circumstances.” The High Court has said that a more recent event, especially one that might have gained some notoriety in the local neighbourhood, may have more bearing on a prospective buyer’s view of the property than a historic one. The location of the event (whether it took place in the grounds of the property or inside the house) and whether the property has been lived in since it happened, as well as the likely reaction of potential buyers, should also be taken into account. The death of someone from natural causes at the property does not need to be disclosed, as this is considered an everyday occurrence. “If you are in this situation as a seller, it’s best to discuss what to do with your real estate agent,” Lampen-Smith says. “They cannot tell prospective buyers without your consent – and if they decide that a sensitive issue should be disclosed but you don’t agree, then they must cease to act for you.” Whatever the situation, whether it’s unconsented work or a tragic event, honesty is the best policy. Talk to your agent about how the disclosure will be handled. There is no need to advertise the information or tell everyone who wanders along to an open home, but potential buyers who have indicated an interest in making an offer must be told.
