OUT THIS WEE KEND

Kidney dream comes true „„ By Emily O’Connell PLUCKY teenager Maddie Collins was operated on yesterday after a potentially lifesaving kidney became available. Maddie, 14, and her family were told at 11pm on Tuesday their five-year wait for a kidney

match had been found. They flew from Christchurch to Auckland early yesterday morning and Maddie underwent the operation at Starship Children’s Health at 1pm. “This is surreal. Is it going to work? Wow, what a miracle,” Maddie’s mother Sarah Manson-Collins said yesterday.

The family will know within days if the transplant has been successful. Mrs Manson-Collins told The Star it can take up to a month for a transplanted kidney to start working. “The concern with Maddie is she is at a high risk of her disease rearing up again and

shutting the new kidney down. We will know within days if this is the case,” she said. Maddie will now spend about three months at Starship recovering. Mrs Manson-Collins said Maddie cried on Tuesday night when she was told of the kidney. •Turn to page 4

Thursday January 18 2018 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THAT’S AMAZING news the front page today – Maddie Collins may have got the kidney she desperately needs to potentially stay alive. The operation at Auckland’s Starship was scheduled to go into early evening (after The Star was sent off to the printer). So fingers crossed everything went well. It has been a very long journey for Maddie and her family and even with the transplant operation yesterday it is far from over. The first step will be if Maddie’s body actually accepts the kidney. Then there will be a wait to see if the kidney functions and then whether the new kidney works. Let’s hope Maddie and her family get the good news in a few months they desperately seek. Another good story on page 3 about a successful surfing family. Donna and Ava Henderson created history by becoming the first mother and daughter combo to win titles at the same national championships. Donna’s step-daughter Estella Hungerford was a medallist. –Barry Clarke

This week in history saw the opening of the meat preserving works on January 16, 1871. On January 17, 1877, the city council swimming pool in the Avon River was opened. Not one of the city council’s better projects – the pool was only a few hundred metres downstream from the hospital’s effluent outfall. On January 18, 1851, the first bank, the Union Bank of Australia, opened at Lyttelton. On the same day in 1894, the New Brighton pier (above) was opened. On

But there was no charge for Nismo the five-month-old puppy, who snuck onto a Metro Blue Line bus on Southbrook Rd headed for Christchurch on Tuesday. After a brief ride, he was guided off the bus, and eventually returned home by animal control. His owner Jess said she turned her back briefly and Nismo was gone. They had recently moved house, and the fence was being put up this weekend, she said.

Surfing success all in the family

„„ By Gordon Findlater IT WAS a family vacation which turned into a national medal haul for Donna Henderson, Ava Henderson and Estella Hungerford at the national surf championships in Gisborne last week. The highlight of the week was when Donna and Ava created history by becoming the first mother and daughter combo to win titles at the same national championships. The family tie doesn’t end there . . . Donna also made it to the women’s longboard final where she lined up against Estella, who is also her stepdaughter. The Taylors Mistake family left for Gisborne in their campervan on January 4. “We got to Gizzy and it was pumping. It was six foot plus on the first day of the competition,” said Donna. The 43-year-old had the highest score overall of 10.2 in the women’s senior event, which saw her take gold in the over 40 category. Her daughter Ava won the girls under-14 final with a score of 13.7. “Essentially, I won the oldest title and Ava won the youngest which is quite special,” said Donna. While tasting her own success was sweet, the highlight for the proud mum was watching Ava secure her first national title. “It was great. She came pretty close last year in Piha but was the bridesmaid so this year she was pretty determined to win.” “Straight off the buzzer she got a really good wave and then she just kept backing it up so it was really awesome to watch.” Donna – who is the founder of the Christchurch School of Surf at Sumner Beach – began surfing in her early 20s and won her first national title at the age of 42 in 2017. Ava on the other hand rode her first board at six and has now already claimed her

first national crown at the age of just 12. “She’s doing pretty well and she does want to be a pro surfer. We’ll see how that goes.” There was more of a competitive element to her step-daughter’s success when Donna and Estella met in the

longboard final. “Both of us were going headto-head in the longboard. I was coming second but in the last minute Estella got a bomb from out the back and pipped me.” “I was really happy for her.” Estella also finished fourth in the girl’s under-16 final.

In Brief CRASH VICTIM A PRIEST The man killed in a crash on Monday was the assistant priest at Our Lady of Victories Parish on Main South Rd, Sockburn. Father Graeme Joseph Blackburn, 33, died after a collision between a motor-cycle and a vehicle on Purau Port Levy Rd, Purau, at about 5.30pm. Father Blackburn had only been ordained in July last year. The serious crash unit is investigating the incident. A vigil for Father Blackburn is to be held on Friday at Our Lady of Victories Church. The Requiem Mass will be held on Saturday at St Mary’s ProCathedral on Manchester St.

SPORTS PARK DELAYED The reopening of Sydenham Park has been delayed for a fourth time due to wet and extreme weather conditions. City council neighbourhood and sports parks operation manager Al Hardy said the work to install four cricket blocks and three sand carpet playing fields will be completed by April 1. The work started in April last year. Originally the park was meant to be finished by July, but that was pushed back to October, then February, and now April.

VEHICLE BREAK-INS A man was arrested after being “grabbed” by onlookers as he allegedly broke into vehicles in Cashmere. Police responded to the incident on Hunter Tce at about 11.54am on Tuesday. “It would appear he was breaking into cars so some people have grabbed him and phoned police,” a police communications spokesman said.

Kidney for Maddie •From page 1 “She knows it’s going to be rough but she also knows this is the best thing for her,” Mrs MansonCollins said. Maddie suffers from kidney disease, nephrotic syndrome, of which there was only about a two per cent chance of finding a match in New Zealand. Maddie received a kidney transplant from her father Adam Collins five years ago but her body rejected it. Mrs Manson-Collins is hopeful it will be different this time. “The team up here wouldn’t have offered it to Maddie if they didn’t think it was the right thing to do,” she said. Mrs Manson-Collins said it is likely Maddie’s disease will return following the kidney transplant. “Starship knows what to do to control it, it just makes it a lot harder on Maddie,” she said. The family did not expect to be able to find a kidney match in New Zealand. They were planning a

trip to The John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, United States, which had been looking at new kinds of transplants, to find a match. They have spent years fundraising to try and get Maddie to the US, which included the auction of a drawing by former Prime Minister Bill English. Since her diagnosis, Maddie has undergone more than 50 operations, been on life support twice,

Mrs Manson-Collins said they feel for the family who lost their loved one, but they were also really grateful for the donation. “There’s a family grieving and we’d just love them to know that this kidney is going into a really special child that’s going to make a difference in this world,” she said.

Hinkley case: ‘I’m not saying anything’ THE MAN who said police accused him of murdering his neighbour Richard Hinkley is now refusing to talk publicly. The Star revealed last week police believe Mr Hinkley, who disappeared two years ago, could have been murdered, a property had been searched and a suspect identified. Mr Hinkley, who was 49 when he disappeared, was last seen at Kiwibank in Edgeware on December 12, 2015. Dion Louvain Lawrence was arrested by police in December and charged with stealing from Mr Hinkley’s home. Lawrence told news media after The Star article was published, police had accused him of taking a laptop from Mr Hinkley’s Madras St flat next door, and pawning it after he reported him missing in February 2016. When The Star visited Lawrence at his flat on Tuesday, he would not open the door and said he had nothing more to say. “I would rather not say anything,” he said. Last week, Lawrence told news media: “They did over my flat, kicked me out for two days, dug

Mr Hinkley was 1.84m tall, and of solid build, and had a shaved head when he was last seen. He often wore a beanie or

ANZ closes Brighton branch „„ By Andrew King NEW BRIGHTON residents have been dealt another blow as a second bank announces it will be permanently closing its doors. ANZ on Seaview Rd will amalgamate with The Palms branch in Shirley on January 26, meaning the area Poto will only have one Williams bank left – New Brighton NZ Post & Kiwibank in the Brighton Mall. It comes after Westpac announced last year it will be closing its doors in New Brighton, Sydenham and Lincoln. An ANZ spokesman said a 20 per cent decline in transactions over the past two years at the New Brighton site was the main reason the two branches will join. Christchurch East MP Poto Williams posted the news on her Facebook page, which gained a swift and angry response.

Another career highlight was heading to Dubai to paint a portion of the world’s longest graffiti wall, which is 2km long, for the Guinness Book of World Records. “It was a false wall in the shape of the United Arab Emirates. There were hundreds of artists there from all over the world,” he said. Including some of Ellis’ long time idols that inspired him to take up the art form. “That was a highlight.

Museum buys polar explorers medals CANTERBURY Museum has acquired medals and two diaries belonging to Tryggve Gran, the Norwegian skiing expert on the British Antarctic Expedition. The museum successfully bid at auction in London for four medals awarded to Gran, who died in 1980, and two of the journals he wrote during his time in Antarctica. It paid £105,000 for the medals and diaries, which have recently arrived in Christchurch. In addition to the Polar Medal Gran was awarded in July 1913 as a member of the expedition, the museum has acquired three medals awarded for his service in World War 1 – the Military Cross (UK), the Legion of Honour (France) and the Order of the Crown of Italy. Museum director Anthony Wright said it was pleased with the price it paid for the items, and they were of world-wide interest and importance. “Tryggve Gran’s medals and diaries contribute to the museum’s knowledge of the ill-fated expedition and this chapter of Gran’s fascinating life as an explorer, aviator and author.” Chosen by Robert Falcon Scott

as an ace skier to train men on the journey south, Gran was the youngest member of the 19101913 expedition. He was one of the 13 expedition members involved in laying the supply depots needed for the Polar Party’s attempt to reach the South Pole in 1911. In November 1912, he was

part of the 11-man search party that found the tent containing the bodies of Scott and his two remaining companions. Gran used his skis to form a cross over their grave. He travelled back to the base at Cape Evan wearing Scott’s skis, so at least they would complete the journey. While the Polar Party

had been on the journey to the South Pole, Gran took part in a geological expedition to the western mountains. Before leaving Antarctica, he climbed Mt Erebus in December 1912 and Aoraki/ Mt Cook in New Zealand on the way back to Britain in 1913. After his Antarctic experience, Gran became a keen aviator, serving with the Royal Flying Corps during WW1. He claimed to have shot down German ace, Hermann Göring, in a dogfight, although this was not proven. When Norway was occupied by Germany during WW2, Gran became a member of the Nationalist Party. While Gran was tried and sentenced to 18 months in prison for treason after the war, there has been speculation he feared reprisals for fighting against Germany in WW1 and, as a result, his Nazi sympathies may not have been as clear cut as previously supposed. Gran’s son Hermann said his father lived a very “full life”. He gave lectures on polar history and aviation well into his 80s and “was a bit upset” when he had to give up driving at the age of 87, he said. •Museum bug collection, p15

Polo comes to Hagley Park

„„ By Sarla Donovan THE SPORT of kings is coming to Hagley Park for the first time in almost 30 years. The Armstrong Prestige Hagley Park Polo tournament starts on Sunday. The free event is the brain child of New Zealand polo player and event owner, Jimmy Wood, whose father Roddy runs the Waireka Polo Centre in Sefton. Jimmy and his two brothers play professional polo. Event organiser Sophie Gardner said the Wood family had dreamed of returning the sport to Hagley Park and had finally got the goahead from the city council. “We’re super excited. There’s been a lot of rain which has been good for the ground. And we’ve got our fingers crossed the weather is going to be fine.” It will be part of a two-day invitational tournament. Hagley Park will host the tournament finals on the second day. Miss Gardner said there would be marquees and hospitality tents along one side of the playing fields while the other side would be available for the public to come and spread a blanket, bring a picnic and

enjoy the free entertainment in the park’s green and leafy surrounds. With 16 polo players from as far afield as Australia and Uruguay competing, each bringing nine ponies, there would be about 140 ponies all up at the event. Armstrong Prestige dealer principal John McKenzie said it

fitted nicely into the city’s social calendar. “Christchurch needs an annual event that the public will get behind. It’s early days, but we think this could become one of Christchurch’s premiere events.” Mr McKenzie said he had attended a couple of similar events in the past. “I went to one in November

last year and it’s surprising how many people get behind it. It’s quite glamorous and I think it will go well in Christchurch.” Miss Gardner said people didn’t need to own a polo pony to enjoy the spectacle. “It’s a really nice summer social occasion. We don’t want it to be exclusive – it’s in a public park and the more people we have the better the atmosphere.” The subsidiary polo final will begin at 12.30pm. At 1.30pm, The Club House Marquee Lunch will take place, and there would be entertainment on the field for those in the public area. At 2.30pm, there will be a team player parade, followed by the grand-final at 2.45pm. During the final’s half-time break, the traditional divot stomping will happen and the Veuve Clicquot Best Dressed Awards will be presented. After the final, the prizegiving will be held at 4pm. Miss Gardner said the plan was to hold the event every year, and grow the sport. “Our dream is to have quite a significant prize pool to attract international teams.”

Roundabout rabbits spared „„ By Bridget Rutherford RABBITS THAT gained quite the audience for living in the middle of busy roundabouts in the red zone have been spared – for now. More than 20 rabbits, some of which are black in colour, have been spotted on the roundabout at Anzac Drive, Travis and Frosts Rds, and the junction of Anzac Drive and New Brighton Rd. But they caused traffic concerns, with motorists driving slowly to look at them and others parking and crossing Anzac Drive to get to the roundabout. In November, the New Zealand Transport Agency said the highway maintenance team was looking to put a rabbit control operation in place to deal with the safety issue. That may have included culling the rabbits, or catching and releasing them elsewhere. The idea sparked outrage, with many saying to leave the bunnies alone. But it appears the bunnies will likely be able to live out their days on the roundabouts. “At this stage, the transport agency is not proposing to do anything about the rabbits which are sometimes seen on the state highway roundabouts through Brighton/Burwood,” an NZTA spokeswoman said.

Missy turns up on the web

„„ By Bridget Rutherford POLLY, FRANCES or Missy. Whatever her name, if this duck could talk, she would have a quacker tale to tell. After going missing for about three weeks, the muscovy duck was reunited with her Mairehau owner Gail Reeves. But little did Ms Reeves know her Missy had become someone else’s Polly long before that. The fouryear-old fowl had spent so much time in the stream that runs next to Merivale’s Webb St, she became a street pet. Webb St Barry Helem resident Vanessa Irvine said the duck had been there most days since December 2014, when ducklings hatched at neighbour’s were released into the stream. Residents named her Polly, and fed her every day. But in September, she went missing. A resident saw a woman gently pick her up from the stream and walk away with her.

POPULAR: The SPCA posted a video of the duck on its Facebook page to try and track down its original owners.

“She had been there for such a long time I just thought, ‘oh where’s she gone?’” Ms Irvine said. “Not that she’s ours, but we kind of felt like she was. She was kind of like a pet to us.” Ms Irvine said initially the street wanted to know where she went and if she was okay. She was surprised Polly and Missy were the same duck, as she was at Webb St so often, and didn’t appear to fly. Although they were sad about not seeing the duck again, at

15

least she was at home being looked after, Ms Irvine said. SPCA southern region general manager Barry Helem said a concerned person picked Missy up thinking she was owned and missing and asked the SPCA to collect her. After posting a video of the duck, which staff named Frances, on its Facebook page and Pets on the Net, the SPCA received a tip she may belong to a Webb St address. “Our staff visited the block of units at the address provided

and door knocked. Of the eight units, only one person answered and stated there was a duck that has been in the area and is fed by the neighbours but is not technically owned,” Mr Helem said. “The original owner then came forward to claim the duck.” Ms Reeves, who owns several muscovy ducks, turkeys and chickens, said she was grateful the Webb St residents helped look after her. “I noticed she had gotten a bit fatter. “She’d fly in and out, I couldn’t control her so when I got her back I clipped one wing.” She said Missy was full of personality, and now had two ducklings. “She dances and bobs her head from side to side. It’s like dancing, she’s like a little rapper.” It’s not the first time one of Ms Reeves’ pets had gone missing. She was reunited with her cat Thomasa 16 months after she went missing during the February 22, 2011, earthquake. Thomasa, originally known as Thomas, later featured in Quake Cats: Heartwarming stories of Christchurch Cats.

$223k for museum bug collection CANTERBURY Museum has been awarded $223,095 for a project to catalogue and provide access to 140,000 invertebrate specimens. The money was granted by the Lottery Grants Board for the second stage of the project. Museum research fellow Peter Johns has collected the specimens over 57 years. The nationally and internationally-significant collection includes craneflies, weta, millipedes and centipedes from all over New Zealand. In 2015, the first phase of the project was awarded a $203,852 lottery grant. The project team is on track to catalogue 70,000 records by March and the aim is to catalogue the second 70,000 specimens over the next two years. The data, information and specimens will be made available to universities, research organisations including Landcare and NIWA, the Department of Conservation, Ministry for Primary Industries and regional councils. Museum director Anthony Wright said the collection would add to the current knowledge of the status of the country’s invertebrate fauna.

News Off-duty officer’s suspicion leads to arrest

„„ By Andrew King AN OFF-DUTY police officer’s eagle eyes led to a 23-year-old man appearing in the district court on Friday. Nicholas Folster, 23, was arrested in Papanui at about 11.30pm on Thursday after the officer spotted him acting suspiciously on Matsons Ave. The offduty officer reported it and police arrived and arrested Folster. He appeared in the district court on Friday charged with three counts of entering a building without authority with the intent to commit an imprisonable offence in that building. The alleged offending happened on Matsons Ave and Aorangi Rd, Bryndwr. Judge John Brandts-Giesen remanded Folster in custody without plea until tomorrow for a bail application hearing.

Thrillers No 1 choice at library

THRILLERS are the most popular books with Christchurch library users, led by British author Lee Child’s Jack Reacher novels. Three Child novels feature in the top five fiction “checkout” list, which also includes Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train and No Man’s Land by David Baldacci. Child’s Night School holds the top spot. “Readers love a good thriller, enjoying the intricacies of a developing plot and all the twists and turns,” said city council libraries content manager Anne Anderson. “These most read lists provide our staff with greater insights into the interests of library users, so we can best meet their reading needs.” For the younger readers, Suzanne Collins still rules the library shelves with three books – The Hunger Games (No 1), Catching Fire (No 3) and Mockingjay (No 5) – in the top five young adult section. “The dystopian novels of Suzanne Collins are much loved by our younger readers as the teen characters tackle massive challenges in pursuit of a better world,” Ms Anderson said.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs and Jay Asher’s Thirteen Reasons Why have also been repeatedly requested. Top 10 adult titles 1. Night School – Lee Child 2. Make Me – Lee Child 3. The Girl on the Train – Paula Hawkins 4. No Middle Name – Lee Child 5. No Man’s Land – David Baldacci 6. Dead To Me – Lesley Pearse 7. After You – Jojo Moyes 8. The Wrong Side of Goodbye – Michael Connelly 9. Paris for One and Other Stories – Jojo Moyes 10. Small Great Things – Jodi Picoult Top 10 teen titles 1. The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins

Among the youngest book lovers, The Adventures of Tintin by Hergé continues to be a pageturner, taking out the top “checkout” spot, followed by Harry

Potter and the Cursed Child, Andy Griffiths’ The 65-Storey Treehouse, David Walliams’ Awful Auntie and The Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl.

2. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs 3. Catching Fire – Suzanne Collins 4. Thirteen Reasons Why – Jay Asher 5. Mockingjay – Suzanne Collins 6. New Guard – Robert Muchamore 7.

Bev Morel

Great grandmother still winning titles Bev Morel showed age is no barrier at the recent national bowls tournament in Dunedin, winning her third national title at the age of 76 with good friend Sherrie Cottle. Andrew King speaks to her about life on and off the green Tell me about winning your third national crown? It was most unexpected, we didn’t think we would win the national title. Sherrie played amazing bowls. We had agreed we would take it one game at a time. In the first round, we played Sandra Keith and Serena Matthews, who are also from Christchurch. We won but we didn’t expect to. From then on it was one game at a time. As the tournament went on and we progressed through more and more rounds, we thought maybe it is our turn to get through. We played last year’s winners in the final, Dale Rayner and Ashleigh Jeffcoat. They had played great bowls to get there. Fortunately, my lead [Sherrie] played outstanding and we combined to pull it off. We were both very excited and I was exceptionally happy for her, it was her first title. We had come runner-up a few years back in the fours. It is still sinking in but we are both over the moon. Correct me if I’m wrong, but NATIONAL CHAMP: Bev Morel relaxes at her Redwood home you stepped down from the with husband Peter. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER national scene a while ago?

I stepped down from the Canterbury representative team about two years ago and carried on playing socially and in national tournaments. There are a lot of young people coming on and I thought it was time to step aside. Do you still get nervous before a tournament, even after competing for almost 37 years? I was very nervous playing the first game against Sandra. As the games went on I got relaxed. I was very relaxed in the final. I thought ‘win or lose, we’re in the final’ and so it allowed me to play such a nice relaxed game. Sherrie played so well so it allowed me to just played my game. Do you have any rituals before competing? No, not really. I do go to sleep the night before saying ‘I will play good bowls, I will play good bowls.’ That way I convince myself I will play well. Win or lose, as long as I play well, I’m happy. The biggest fear we had in this tournament was getting thrashed. We didn’t want that to happen. No one wants a hiding.

And clearly, it worked. Have you thrown the bowl with the bias the wrong way before? Yes, I have done it in a New Zealand final in the women’s fours. I was at my first nationals, which I won in 1995. Once you have done it, it is gone. I just told myself I had to play the next one well and rolled a toucher so I redeemed myself. If someone does it we have a bit of grin and say bad luck. Usually, we have a shout. Depending on what they drink, it is usually wine, spirits or beer. If a shout was coming your way what would you request? Kahlua or a riesling wine. What do you look for in a playing partner? With nationals, I always play with friends and teammates from the club and, if we are compatible, we just keep playing together. Sherrie has come and gone from our club and I have played a lot with her. I have played with my sister, Terresa, when we won the fours in 2006 and I still play with her in the fours. •Turn to page 20

Morel won’t be ‘giving up anytime soon’

•From page 19 What has kept you playing bowls for so long? I love the game, meeting people, making friends and contacts. I retired last year and you need something to keep you occupied and it has been a fantastic interest for me. Keeps me out of the housework. I have a wonderful daughter that helps. Where did you work? I was a nurse’s assistant at Burwood Hospital for the last 19 and a half years. I loved every minute of it. It was fantastic. Tell me about your fitness regime to stay in match condition? I go to the gym three of four days a week for about 40min a time. I haven’t been since I got back from nationals. But I will get back into it. If you leave it too long, you will feel it. I don’t put as much practice in, I used to practice every day. We are playing three to four times a week now so we don’t need to practice too much. I take a week off before nationals to get fresh and ready to roll. Tell me a bit about your family? Well, I am married to my husband Peter and we have four children – Darryl Morel, 50,

Susan Dickson, 54, Debbie Morel, 55, and Kevin Morel, 56. I have five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. There must be some talented bowlers in that clan? None of them play. Kevin played for a few years before he got married. He is playing golf now. He played in the nationals with Peter in the pairs and fours in 2016. I have had one granddaughter down the green when she was 11 or 12 and she was a natural. But they are not interested in playing. You won a national title in Dunedin in 2006, but that crown has a special meaning for you doesn’t it? My brother died while we were at the tournament and he told us to go down and win it for him. So that will always have a special meaning. It was just the best. I will never forget it. We couldn’t come home not winning that. I missed his funeral but we won the title. Obviously you have your No 1 fan and husband Peter supporting you, tell me about him? He is absolutely amazing, especially in Dunedin this year. He drove us everywhere, looked after us. He got soaked one day taking

our bowls to the car. We had just finished playing and it rained heavily and he got drenched. He had to head back to the house we were renting off a friend and change his clothes. He has been so supportive over the years and we have played a lot together in tournaments. It is a really special relationship. Is it true his legendary scrapbook detailing your success over the years started as a school project by one of your nieces? My granddaughter, April, Debbie’s eldest daughter, started

it as a project for school at about age 11. I had absolutely nothing to do with it. Well, you won the titles. Well, that is right. Bowls has a bit of a reputation for some fairly decent gettogethers after the matches, have you ever been to a function that got a bit too rowdy? Rowdy, yes, out of control, no. There have been a few drinks over the years. In the younger days probably a bit more. We have slowed down on the drinking, not on the greens, though.

®

Who is the best player you have competed against? Millie Khan, from Matamata. She has passed on now but played for New Zealand for a number of years. Her daughter Jan Khan, has also played for New Zealand. They were a formidable pair. Jo Edwards from Nelson, who now lives in Australia, has played for New Zealand and won a lot of titles before. She is the top bowler in New Zealand. We were probably fortunate we didn’t have to play her at nationals. Are there any big rivalries in bowls around Canterbury? All the top bowlers know each other, we have played together a lot. There is a lot of good friendship built through good hard competitive bowls. Once it is over, it is over. We are all good mates. You know you are both playing your heart out and who wins, wins. It is disappointing when you lose, but you pick yourself up and go try again. Finally, how much longer are you planning on playing competitively? Probably until I stop enjoying it. When I can no longer walk properly and can’t bowl, I will give up. So I have no plans of giving up anytime soon.

in the best!

A letter to our community. Thank you to our wonderful staff and to all those helping us following the recent devastating fire at the GELITA NZ plant in Woolston, Christchurch. There were four people on site at the time of the fire and fortunately no one was hurt. The fire has caused major structural and electrical damage, primarily in our processing area, and the food manufacturing areas of the plant. Our first job is to clean up, now that the fire and insurance investigators have given us the go ahead. The clean-up operation will include the removal of partially processed beef hide from the site over the next three or so weeks. During the removal, there will unfortunately be increased odours at some stages of the day. We are keenly aware of our near neighbours and will work very hard to keep the impact to an absolute minimum. Despite our best efforts, we expect that there will be spikes in odour while the partly processed material is treated and removed. It’s a huge job. But, once the material is removed, the source of the odour will have been eliminated. We are grateful for your patience and understanding while we undertake this work and we apologise for any short-term effect this may have on our local community. GELITA NZ takes beef hide, a by-product from meat works, extracts the collagen, and turns it into gelatine powder for use in a broad range of industries including the food, beverage, health and pharmaceutical sectors. While the fire has been a major setback for GELITA NZ, the plant was fully insured and our parent company has established a support team in Germany to help us through this period of uncertainty. Our customers are being serviced by the wider GELITA group while we plan for our future. We remain positive. GELITA NZ employs 60 staff and a further 300 indirectly. About three-quarters of our high quality gelatine is sent overseas. There is no doubt that we face a difficult period but we will continue to work hard for our future.

School preparation With Christmas and New Year’s celebrations now a distant memory and summer holidays drawing to a close its time to start preparing for the year ahead and getting your kids organised for school. If your little ones are starting a new school you’II be getting them measured up for their new school uniform or making a trip to the book shop to stock their backpacks. New timetables and routines are best set in place in the couple of weeks leading up introduce earlier bedtimes and gradually wake the kids earlier each morning to ease them back into a healthy sleep wake cycle.

Serving meals at home which are in line with what the school timetable dictates is also a good way to get your kids back into the rituals schools demand and helps accustom the little ones adapt before the school year begins. Setting up a calendar in a central location in the household will make sure each family member is on the same page when it comes to carpooling and extracurricular activities.

Junior GaTE Project : Community Action

Our small class sizes enable us to focus on the individaul learning for all students. We look forwad to welcoming new enrolments for 2018.

The junior GaTE (Gifted and Talented) group at Mairehau High School has been working on a project looking at the needs of our community. One Year 9 student, Caley Gopperth, chose to focus on the increasing rate of the homeless in our city. She began by looking at the idea of putting together an emergency kit. From there she researched what would be required and began pricing up all of the items. She wrote to a number of companies asking for support and donations. We are very grateful to The Warehouse, K-Mart, Cookie Time, Warehouse Stationery and Ferrymead Dental for their support. Caley also fundraised making and selling packs of cheese rolls and Thai

pumpkin soup to the staff. Caley thought it would be best to work alongside the City Mission. She was lucky enough to be shown around the new City Mission by Gray Crawford, the Social Services Manager. He spoke with her about the backgrounds and needs of their clients. Caley was told about the new women’s 12-bed overnight refuge that is about to open. From this discussion Caley was able to make the decision to focus the backpacks and items on the needs of these women. Caley and her teacher, Ms Marshall, will be delivering the bags to the City Mission next week, who will then ensure they get to the right women. This has been a very successful and rewarding project for Caley.

What an exciting year we have ahead of us in 2018. We will move into the first two of our new buildings around the middle of the year. Our new gymnasium offers a second full sized basketball court to complement the court in the existing Gymnasium. It will also contain a fitness and weights room (a new addition for students) and teaching spaces. The main building (the one you see from Waterloo Road) will contain specialist teaching spaces for technologies, visual

arts and sciences. It will also include our learning commons, Whare, student cafe and wellness resources, staffroom, and administration. We all know of course that a school is much more than its buildings, and a huge amount of work has gone into adapting how we cause learning.

Education is about the well-being of the whole person and how developmentally positive experiences enrich our students’ understanding of who they are and broaden their outlook. They nurture students’ classroom focus by contextualising their learning and sowing the seeds of positive ambition. Linwood College believes in a ‘pathwayed curriculum’. This means the school, students and families knowing: 1. Students’ prior learning and skills as they come into LC from our partner primary schools and building on these successes 2. How the learning at LC connects to what the students want to do when they leave school. “What are my post-school pathways and how does my time at LC help me achieve these pathways?” In this way learning is meaningful to the

Junior students are increasingly approaching their learning via real world contexts (whether it’s the arts or business, or project based learning designed to improve our community in real ways). This is contributing to improved engagement and improved learning. We are a very values based school, and our students repeatedly show that they have a heart for our values, for their community, and for what is right. What an amazing year we are going to have.

individual and strengths-based. Students learn best when who they are in terms of language, culture and identity – is affirmed. Enhancing the mana and dignity of the individual is at the heart of Linwood College. Our school’s Year 7-13 curriculum creates aspiration and community. There is age-appropriate educational and social continuity and multiple opportunities for leadership so students excel and develop independence. At our school all students can make their mark whether academic, cultural or sporting and set their direction for life after secondary school. An LC leaver is confident and well-prepared for the future. Our leavers continue to join thousands of former LC students who have achieved personal success both within New Zealand and overseas.

The Manaiakalani pedagogy (Learn Create Share), and the use of digital devices (Chromebooks) is having a huge effect on student achievement, with achievement surpassing growth and improvement nationally by a significant margin. We ask all students to come to school equipped with a Chromebook, apart from your time, there is little better you can invest in your child’s education than the purchase of that Chromebook.

Take advantage of all that Burnside High School has to offer unique. Every student should feel there is a place for them no matter what their ideas, their backgrounds, their orientations.

Welcome to the school year; and a special welcome to all new students, families and staff who start their association with the Burnside community in 2018. I look forward to meeting you as the year progresses.

Burnside has a tradition of high achievement based on strong, positive learning relationships between students and their teachers; and strong connections with whanau. Our goal is for all our students to demonstrate the attitude, motivation, and determination to be successful; to progress and achieve in learning; and to contribute in all areas of school life. We want our students to take control of their learning and their development and be part of our sporting and cultural activities.

Every student has individual talents, gifts and personal characteristics and behaviours and our job is to nurture and guide everyone to become the best version of themselves. I want all people at Burnside to feel that they are part of something bigger than themselves; and for the school to be a place that allows students and staff to thrive, be challenged, and become high performers. I want a culture where “excellence is not an act, but a habit” - a culture of high performance – no matter what talents we have been dealt.

We offer a wide range of opportunities A successful school provides through quality learning experiences opportunities for students to gain both inside and outside the classroom. qualifications, but also guides and We aim to engage, challenge and assists them in shaping pathways for life support our students to improve allbeyond school.

centuries as a guiding point.

We believe that the culture of the school provides the basis for students to achieve, and to continue to achieve both at school and beyond the school.

Our hope and intent is that students will feel guided through Burnside High School - attaining the qualifications they are capable of and that they develop the personal qualities and confidence to choose the right pathways in life. Above all else enjoy the “cabbage tree years”.

Our school motto - Recte sic dirige cursum – ‘Along this path direct your journey correctly’ is linked to the historical significance of our cabbage trees, Ti Kouka, (commas don’t isolate the phrase) that stand so proudly on our grounds. They are a landmark in the local landscape and have been used for

Christchurch Girls High Last year our school was 140 years old and in that 140 year history we have never doubted what we stand for. We know what we are. From our beginnings in 1877 we have only ever been a purpose built school for girls. When our school first opened on that September day in 1877 who could have envisaged 140 years later: three site moves, a number of earthquakes, 13 principals and a fabulous new building? In that time we have seen the move from ink pens to ball points, from blackboards

to whiteboards to laptops. It makes you wonder what the future holds in store and how can you prepare for what may or may not be? At Christchurch Girls’ High School we work hard to build capacity in our students so that they are able to embrace the future with confidence. Students strive to pursue personal excellence on the sporting field, in cultural activities, through community service and academically. They do so

CITY 2 SURF TRAINING PROGRAMME WEEK TWO: Starting out

To achieve this goal you need to develop some awareness around the basic requirements of exercising for health and fitness. First and foremost this has to do with 3 key principles:

In week 2 you will extend the time of your sessions by a fraction. The challenge is to keep the intensity controlled. There is no need to get really puffed and tired. Remember the talk test. If you exercise with others the talk test comes automatically. If it is just you, talk to yourself but perhaps not too loud!….We can divide what we call the submaximal pace up in 3 zones. 1. Easy: this is a pace where you are not too puffed and the talk test is not even a test. At this stage this is the zone you spent most of your time in as it will give you some initial conditioning without the risk of soreness or muscle strain 2. Steady: this is slightly faster than easy; it can also be called a “firm” pace. It takes a bit more effort to talk but you can still form sentences without having to take an extra breath 3. Moderately hard: this is the pace where you need that extra breath to finish your sentence. You can still talk and jog at the same time but it becomes more laborious so you tend to shut up and concentrate more on your rhythm and holding your pace

1. How often do you train? To improve your level of health and fitness you will need to aim for 4 sessions per week. 2 or 3 sessions per week will only maintain what you have and 1 session per week is definitely not sufficient. 2. How long are your sessions? The duration of your sessions will generally build towards between 30 and 50 minutes with one longer session of 60-80 minutes.

3. What is the right intensity to train at? The good thing about the programme is that all your runs will be done at submaximal pace, also called conversation pace. That means a pace where you can still talk. If you can’t talk you are going too fast and you are likely to come to a grinding halt sooner or later. This programme and accompanying information are written as a guide only. If you are concerned about your health at any stage please undergo a health check with your GP.

TIP OF THE WEEK Make sure you have comfortable footwear. This will help your enjoyment and prevent injury. There are a few specialised sport shoe wear shops in Christchurch where the sales people are trained in assisting you to make the right choice. Comfort is an important part of your choice and only you can feel that. If you have issues with your feet you might decide to consult a podiatrist to get more professional advice regarding the best footwear for you.

Rowers gear up for Maadi Cup „„ By Andrew King SCHOOL rowing crews have one eye on the Maadi Cup as they build towards the South Island championships on Lake Ruataniwha in Twizel. After the first “blowout” of the season at the Canterbury championships in Twizel at the weekend, crews quickly got back on the water to improve before the South Island regatta on January 27-28. The Maadi Cup, the biggest school regatta of the year, will be held in Twizel from March 19-24. Christchurch crews won 10 golds at the Maadi Cup regatta last year, with St Andrew’s College winning the coveted boys under-18 eights ahead of Christ’s College. Christchurch Boys’ High head coach Logan Keys said while there were some tired bodies after a big camp in Alexandra days before the Canterbury champs,

HARD YARDS: Rangi Ruru rowers jumped straight back into training after a strong outing at the Canterbury champs. (Right) – The women’s eights lined up ready to race. PHOTOS: © STEVE MCARTHUR

the sport was about putting in the hard yards. Their training paid off with CBHS winning eight golds at the champs – which

included a blistering time of 6min 13.42sec to win the men’s open eights – as well as three silver and three bronze medals.

“This is our building phase of the season. We are pretty happy with where we are at right now,” Keys said. “We will start to firm up some combinations for Maadi in the next few regattas,” he said. Last year at the South Island champs, CBHS crews took home gold in the men’s club coxed four, boys under-17 eights, boys under-15 coxed octuple sculls, boys under-16 coxed four, men’s novice eights, boys under-15 eights and men’s open eights. Rangi Ruru Girls’ School director of rowing Mark Cotham said the whole squad jumped straight back into training after the Canterbury champs and were

at

looking good. “The work rate of the seniors right down to the juniors has been great. We are putting in the ground work and mileage now with one eye on Maadi,” he said. Rangi Ruru also had a successful outing at the weekend with six golds – two of which came in the women’s novice eights and intermediate eights – five silvers and one bronze. At the South Island champs last year, Rangi Ruru won gold in the girls under-16 coxed four, girls under-17 coxed four, girls under-15 eights, girls under-17 eights and women’s under-19 eights.

Sport Miya doesn’t drop a shot to sweep field „„ By Gordon Findlater RUSSLEY’S Hiroki Miya did not drop a shot when he powered his way past 108 of the country’s top young golfers to win the North Island under-19 championship in Hamilton at the weekend. Miya didn’t register a single bogey through 54 holes on his way to an eight-shot victory. Rounds of 68, 68 and 67 to finish at 13-under even had the 17-year-old in awe of himself, describing the win as the perfect start to the year. “It was pretty cool to string together rounds like that,” said Miya. “I haven’t won by that kind of margin in a big tournament before. Everything was on and all parts of my game came together.” Australia is the next destination in Miya’s journey towards one day turning professional. He will play in the Avondale Amateur in Sydney starting next Tuesday. It will be the biggest amateur tournament Miya has played in, with entries for the amateur ranking event from as far as England and Switzerland. Dewar's White Label Scotch Whisky

Sensei’s group one bid „„ By Gordon Findlater THREE-YEAR-OLD Sensei will revert to sprinting in a bid to win his first group one race in the time-honoured Telegraph handicap at Trentham on Saturday. Trainer Michael Pitman says the colt’s wide barrier draw (13) “isn’t the best in the world” for the $100,000 1200m race. Pitman was hopeful Sensei would deliver him an elusive group one win in the 2000 3YO Guineas (1600m) at Riccarton in November. But he finished fifth. At his most recent start, Sensei was caught wide and overraced in the group one Levin Classic (1600m) on Saturday. He finished eighth. Pitman, who trains the colt with his son Matthew, believes the Telegraph distance will better suit Sensei. “He raced really keen in the 1600m race on Saturday so it’s in our mind to run him back in the 1200m,” said Pitman. “This the best distance for him. Danielle Johnson is riding him. He’s only got a light weight and he’s very well in himself so

Explore the salt mines of Hallstatt „„ By Mike Yardley DO A Google image search of Hallstatt and you’ll notice that it’s one particular perspective, looking long across the length of the slender village, strung along a shoe-string peninsula, pricked by lofty church spires, that sings out loud. Wedged between the edge of Lake Hallstatt and the towering Dachstein mountains, Austria’s oldest – and arguably most photographed village – hovered like a mirage, as I neared it. It is insanely quaint, achingly beautiful and home to just 800 residents. High above Hallstatt, in the upper valley, one of the greatest eye-openers was to take a journey back in time to the origin of salt production. Salzwelten is situated high above the town on the 1030m Salzberg (Salt Mountain). You can access this remarkable attraction aboard a funicular. My first stop was at Rudolf’s Tower, which serves up dreamy views from this old fortification, built over 700 years ago to defend the mines against invaders. It’s been joined by the Sky Walk, built four years ago, consisting of a sprawling platform that juts off the mountainside, with a sheer drop to the rooftops of Hallstatt, directly below. The starring attraction, however, is the 7000-year-

ANCIENT HISTORY: Access to the Salzwelten salt mining operation is by funicular railway. Have fun on a 64m wooden slide that miners used on the job.

old salt mine itself. It’s the world’s oldest known salt mine, with archaeological evidence proving they were mining the salt from this mountain in 5000BC. Since salt is such an excellent preservative many of the early miner’s tools like pick axes and ladders, found within the mine, have withstood the ravages of time. By 800BC, the hardy miners were penetrating as deep as 200m into the mountain, carving out tunnels by hand, to reach the vast deposits of “white gold.” The greatest discovery to date was the “Man in Salt”, the corpse of an ancient miner, mummified in salt, who is believed to have perished during a major workplace accident in 1000BC. His preserved body was found in 1734 and he was laid to rest in the local graveyard, 2700 years after dying. Within the

mine, I marvelled over the magnificently preserved wooden staircase that was built in 1344BC. The tourist experience takes you through two levels, using the wooden slides that the miners actually used on the job. Riding these 64m slides must have been the fun part to their daily toil. Back down in town, I paid to visit to St Michael’s Chapel’s Bone House. Dating back to the 12thcentury, the rather macabre draw is the hundreds of artistically painted skulls on display. Hallstatt’s shortage of available land meant the graveyard was always in hot demand and after several years, an existing grave was reused for a new burial. Over 30,000 entries have been logged in the church death registry. Given Hallstatt’s glorious sense of alpine isolation, the area is ripe with outdoorsy opportunities. Backdropped by the Dachstein mountains, the peaks play host to skiers in winter and hikers in the warmer months. Some will take you up close to glaciers, including the stunning nature walk on the Echerntal Trail, which many a romantic poet and painter have swooned over. The mountains are also famous for the spectacular Dachstein Caves, a network of caverns nearly 1200m deep.

Graeme Coates debuted this Rangiora-based truck last year.

The muscle car party continues again this year with the 28th running of the Muscle Car Madness Show in Rangiora. Competitors start rolling into town on the Thursday for a full-on, carnival-style weekend, which continues to be the South Island’s largest automotive event and one of the top three in New Zealand. The event kicks off with a downtown street party taking over Rangiora’s main street on Thursday night from 6pm till 9pm. Live bands play during this time, and with shops open, stalls going on, and bars, restaurants and cafes serving the punters, it really “went off ” last year, the organisers say. Around 200 cars will be on display on the Thursday, and over 1200 cars on the public days. Both days feature different cars and a two-day (public show hours) pass will be available at the gates on Saturday for $30. Friday is a day for the competitors and involves around 300 cars, with their drivers enjoying the North Canterbury scenery on the ‘Classic Cover’s Great Summer Fun Run’. This is a low-key event, with a lunch stop in the middle. The variety of cars on display is phenomenal. Street machines, muscle cars, restored classics and hot rods – whatever your taste you will find something to satisfy it. Many one-make car clubs have club displays to raise awareness of their club and attract new members. These include the ZephyrZodiac club, Falcon club, several Holden clubs, Corvette, Mustang, and even a large showing of Volkswagens. Another popular event returning this year is the South Island Van nationals, again being run by Vanz Unlimited. It is hoped the ‘Diesel Rat’, the latest creation from Bell-A-Rat customs, will make an appearance. This rolling piece of art is

music, & so much more family, including trade displays, craft stalls, a huge retro clothing section and of course the ‘Kabella Baby’ sponsored retro beauty competition taking place early Saturday afternoon. The burnout pad will start earlier on the Saturday this year at around 12 noon, with the finals being held on Sunday. So if you like perfect paintwork, gleaming chrome and the noise of highperformance, crisp-sounding V8 engines, this is the place to be. But don’t leave it till 3pm Sunday to come to the show, or you will be disappointed. A lot of cars will have driven huge distances to get here and a few will start leaving early for the drive home.

 Lots of fun down the main street of Rangiora at the Thursday night street party.  Over 50 young ladies competed in the retro beauty pageant.

This family-friendly show – don’t forget the children’s rides – is priced slightly differently this year, to hopefully speed up proceedings. Adults are $18, all kids under 15 are free, and a two-day pass for display hours only is just $30 and available on Saturday at the gate.

Upper South Island travel guide PICTON

PLAN YOUR JOURNEY – PICTON TO CHRISTCHURCH State Highway 1 (SH1) north of Kaikōura opened to daytime traffic in December, restoring the coastal highway link from Picton to Christchurch. The re-opening of SH1 gives people two viable options for travel around the upper South Island, with the alternate route (via state highways 63, 6, 65 and 7 through Lewis Pass) remaining a reliable 24/7 option.

Make sure you allow enough time for your journey, whichever route you chose. Unexpected events, such as a crash, high volumes of traffic, ongoing wet weather or seismic activity, can cause delays. Ongoing roadworks and reduced speed limits in places mean that it won’t be possible for you to make up time.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON SH1

1

Parts of the road will still be under construction, so there will be some unsealed sections, lane closures with Stop/Go controls and speed restrictions. There will be night closures (8.30pm – 7am) north of Kaikōura between Clarence and Mangamaunu, and between Goose Bay and Peketa in the south. Closure points will be monitored 24/7.

OPEN 24/7*

CHRISTCHURCH

* Conditions can change any time, so it is important to check the current status at least two hours before you travel and at key route decision points. Visit www.nzta.govt.nz/p2c or freephone 0800 4 HIGHWAYS (0800 44 44 49)

Consider road closure hours before starting your trip and leave enough time to be clear of these sections so you can continue your journey. The opening hours are subject to adverse weather and seismic activity. If there is a lot of rain or another significant event, we may have to close the road for short periods of time. It’s important to remember the safety of those using the highway, and working on it, will always be our top priority.

WORK HAS RAMPED UP IN JANUARY Following the road opening on 15 December, most of the work sites closed down to help with traffic flow over the busy Christmas period. The work programme is now back in full delivery which will have a significant effect on the coastal corridor. NZ Transport Agency Journey Manager Tresca Forrester says ‘It’s a balancing act to schedule the reinstatement work to have a minimal effect on travel time while also ensuring the work gets done. Drivers should now expect it to take at least 5 ½ to 6 hours to drive between Picton and Christchurch on SH1 but should allow plenty of extra time in case of delays. Check www.nzta.govt.nz/p2c for the latest information.’

BE ROAD COURTEOUS • No stopping on SH1 within the closure areas outside of designated stop bays. • Be patient and cautious. Road conditions will be unfamiliar to many drivers, so a little bit of patience will go a long way. • Follow all traffic signs and any instruction given by road crew. • Obey speed limits to keep all road users safe. • Stay focused around rail lines. Expect trains at any time. • Keep fresh by taking breaks and supporting communities on the route.

„„ By Ross Kiddie VOLVO’S XC90 has long been regarded as the perfect mid-to-large sport utility vehicle. There are no arguments there, it is the quintessential seven-seater and its success globally speaks for itself. However, its little brother also stands up to be counted, the XC60 represents much of what its stablemate commands, but is packaged as a five-seater only. The XC60 would be the car for me, and in its latest iteration it is an absolute stunner. In saying that, I’m not really an SUV buyer, but sometimes a car just screams out perfection, and for that reason it’s hard to ignore the XC60. The Volvo distributor here has taken the XC60’s arrival seriously. The range is comprehensive, there are five variants on offer, including a hybrid, and a huge range of colours. Prices range from $84,900 to $94,900. The test car was a badged D5 and carried R-Design specification extras. In this form the XC60 is an absolute gem, it has build quality, features and performance to envy. Sure, its price tag of almost $95k is a little prohibitive for the family buyer, but what you get on the series is stunning. Over the years I’ve written many times of my affection for air suspension, and the way the XC60 rides and drives is spectacular. It has that float-on-air feeling along with the other benefits of that system – ride-height adjustment and the ability to absorb uneven surfaces. I’m not saying the XC60 is an off-roader, but it does get four-wheel-drive and it will tackle gentle crosscountry tracks with dignity and aplomb. Under the bonnet sits a twin-turbocharged, 2-litre diesel. Don’t let the D5’s nomenclature fool you, this engine isn’t one of the legendary five-cylinder designs of years gone by, it is, in fact, a four-cylinder unit and makes up for any disappointment with its amazing power outputs – 177kW and 500Nm. Volvo also claims a 5.5-litre per 100km (51mpg) combined cycle fuel usage average. The latter is not surpris-

VOLVO XC60: High values for safety and comfort.

ing, most modern diesels of this size will present you with figures in that area, and that is reinforced by the 7l/100km (40mpg) figure showing on the evaluation car’s fuel usage readout during my time with the vehicle. That along with a 5l/100km (56mpg) instantaneous figure sitting at the legal limit with the engine turning over freely at 1600rpm. • Price – Volvo XC60 D5, $94,900 • Dimensions – Length, 4688mm; width, 1902mm; height, 1658mm • Configuration – Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive, 1969cc, 177kW, 500Nm, eightspeed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 7.1sec • Fuel usage – 5.5l/100km

While these figures are impressive, take into account the areas where peak power is realised (4000rpm) and the flat torque curve – 1500rpm to 2500rpm – and you have an engine which delivers solid power from anywhere in the rev band. Drive is channelled though a conventional eight-speed transmission, and together the two elements provide immediacy and fluid drive. As a guide to performance the XC60 in this form will lunge to 100km/h in 7.1sec and will complete a highway overtake in 5sec, the midrange boost is something wonderful; at road speed the XC60’s diesel engine is stroppy and forceful. That’s the reason why I like the traditional 2-litre diesel, it has boost and torque like nothing else, it is vibrant to drive yet

doesn’t lose sight of the need to promote healthy fuel usage statistics. It is also wonderfully quiet in its delivery. Why I remarked earlier about the suspension is that the XC60 has handling manners other manufacturers must envy. The XC60 is wonderfully balanced for a 1.65m-tall vehicle, body movement is negligible and the suspension always seems composed. The R-Design model has huge wheels and they are fitted with some of the world’s most desirable tyres – Pirelli PZero. At 255/40 x 21in, there is a lot of rubber on the road and there’s never a point where you feel like the tyres are struggling, corner turn-in is accurate and steering feedback delightful. While the XC60’s allround performance is remarkable, it must be remembered it is built with the Volvo values for safety and occupant comfort. It is also a true champion in that area with a high level of fitment and a layout which is clean aesthetically. I particularly like the large central screen which is a hugely intuitive iPad-like device and is the driver for most of the in-cabin functions. The XC60 range is quite extensive, not only do you get conventional engines and transmissions, the hybrid will be the basis for when the company scales back production of internal combustion engines and focuses on hybrid and electric vehicles sometime after 2019. In the meantime, it’s fantastic cars like the XC60 and others from the Volvo stable which will continue to lure buyers, simply because of its quality and rewarding driving experience.

GARDENING ADVICE

Regular watering and garden management is critical for plant health during the hot summer months. Adding a thick layer of mulch around plants will help prevent soil moisture evaporating. Avoid watering during the hottest part of the day when plants are heat stressed; instead water in the early morning or evening.

with

We have a Daltons Garden Mulch Pack to giveaway. Each pack is valued at over $85 and contains:

I need some advice and tips for using planter boxes for my vegetables (tomatoes, lettuce etc). How often should I water and fertilise? Am new to this! Plus, what’s the best way to deter the local cats from using my planter boxes as their toilet?

QUESTION

• • • •

3 x Daltons Mulch & Grow 3 x Daltons Nugget Bark 4 x Besgrow Coir Briquette PLUS a pair of comfortable, versatile Red Back gardening gloves from Omni Products (www.omniproducts.co.nz)

Today’s winning question came from Candice Johnson. Congratulations! Depending on the position of your planter boxes, they will need to be watered regularly and thoroughly in the height of summer; possibly every second day. We presume you have used good quality potting mix and/or container mix which is purposely designed for growing vegetables in planter boxes.

ANSWER

$85 PR

PACIZE K!

BE IN

TO WIN!

Most container mixes have nutrients included, but with regular watering and plant uptake, these readily available nutrients are used up over time. Therefore, apply side dressings of Daltons Goldcote Vegetable and Herb Fertiliser every 2-3 weeks throughout the summer months. In order to keep cats out of your garden, it may be necessary to enclose your garden in some chicken mesh supported by stakes that are high enough to allow sufficient room for the veggies to grow, while preventing the animals from accessing the growing plants. There are some products on the market which are meant to deter cats from entering parts of the garden through their pungent odour. You might wish to try these and experiment for yourself.

Send us your gardening question to be in to win!

Tongue-twister will add colour and texture to your garden „„ By Henri Ham BEAUTIFUL bupleurum – that’s a bit of a tongue-twister. If you’re not sure how to pronounce it – it’s boo-pler-um. This pretty plant, which is sold under the ‘flower’ category, is actually a herb. But unless you have experience in herbal medicine or the like ingesting it isn’t recommended. These days, bupleurum is more commonly grown to add colour and texture to gardens and for cut flowers – it lasts really well in a vase. It has beautiful eucalyptus-like leaves on tall stems with greenyellow flowers and grows to around

80cm tall. It’s closely related to fennel and dill, and you can see why – they have quite a similar look due to the fact they are all umbelforming plants. What’s an umbel? This word comes from the Latin word umbella which you’ve probably guessed means parasol, sunshade – much like an umbrella. And it’s used to describe the short flower stalks which spread out from a common point on each stem – like the ribs of an umbrella. While there’s a bit of information you can learn about bupleurum, growing it is quite simple. It likes full sun and each plant

naTiVe planT nursery Trees for CanTerbury

should be planted around 40cm apart from the next. Once it’s planted it’s very easy-care and doesn’t attract many pests or insects. And will flower in around four to five weeks. It’s a short-lived perennial which means if you live in an area that gets frosts you will probably get one flowering from your bupleurum. But if you live in a frost-free area of New Zealand, you should get two or more flowerings out of your bupleurum. Regardless of where you live, if you’re lucky, when they’ve finished flowering they may self-seed and pop up again the next year.

SIMPLE: Bupleurum likes full sun and is easy-care.

Infiltrating every arena of our lives, technology aims to make our lives better. Greater efficiency, economy, comfort, and safety are cornerstones of the technological advancements that are constantly being imagined and developed to make our homes a haven from, and connected to, the outside world. Biometric fingerprint security systems, key cards, and voice-activated lighting were once only seen on the seemingly fantastical movies of 20 years ago. Today, however, they have all come to fruition on the home front, the realm of possibilities seems limited only by one's imagination. Smart home technology has filtered through all aspects of our lives, which promises greater comfort, safety, economy, efficiency, and overall enjoyment of the world in which we live. Smarter building materials, smarter architectural design, smarter appliances, and smarter software systems that offer fully integrated multi-sensory platforms are being envisioned and created faster than we can get our heads around how to operate them. So, what is your home missing that could deliver optimal comfort beyond your wildest dreams? For those of us who spend long periods away from home on business, remote-access security cameras are becoming a popular commodity. Cameras placed in and around your home can be controlled and viewed via a remotely connected device so no matter where you are in the world you can have peace of mind that when you return everything will be just as you left it. Home security systems can also welcome you home at the end of every day with intelligent preset computer modules. On your approach the garage door opens, the driveway is sufficiently illuminated and the alarm system is deactivated.

When receiving visitors, automated lighting can be activated above the door when the buzzer is pressed and crystal-clear video monitors now give you the ability to zoom in with touch-screen controls and developments in sound technology are able to negate background noise for optimal audio communication. Smart temperature control is a valuable piece of technology to give you greater comfort inside. Sync the controls to your mobile device so you can activate the heating or air conditioning on your way home from the office so it’s the perfect climate on your arrival. Smart temperature control systems give you total control over power and fuel consumption, heating and cooling your home efficiently and economically. Automated lighting is another smart feature that is becoming more and more commonplace in households around the world. Easily integrated into existing homes, most automated lighting systems are controlled from a central panel or via a smart mobile device. LED lights enable you to control colour, brightness, and efficiency, depending on the mood and task at hand, while automated controls can even make adjustments based on changing conditions like occupancy or daylight availability, saving money in the long run. Whatever the future holds, it promises to change the world as we know it.
