Snapshot of poet’s life on film

• By Sarla Donovan

A documentary film about

Lyttelton writer Ben Brown

(above) has won an international

award in Berlin.

Félix Vaunois’ film Moko: A

Film about a Maori Poet was last

week selected as the winner of

the Berlin Student Film Festival

Documentary Award.

Described as the intimate

story of a modern-day Maori

poet, the seven minute film is

a snapshot of Mr Brown’s life,

exploring how the man and the

poet intersect.

He was “very impressed” with

what Mr Vaunois had made.

Seeing yourself on screen was

an unusual experience, he said,

given the personal nature of the

film. “Odd, but not unpleasant.”

The award winning children’s

author and poet has lived in

Lyttelton for the past 17 years.

Mr Vaunois said the award

was unexpected and “very

exciting.”

“I’m very proud, but at the

end of the day, I got such a thrill

working with Ben. He’s one of

the most amazing characters I’ve

ever met.”

POLICE HAVE used social

media to quash rumours a

serious crash between Barrys

Bay and the Hilltop Tavern on

Sunday was caused by a foreign

driver.

Senior Constable Anita

Osborne posted on the Akaroa

Buy Sell and Exchange and

Community Notice Board

Facebook page: “Before there is

any speculation about tourist

drivers and bad motorbikes, not

that I expect anyone would jump

to conclusions would they, the

driver of the car admits driver

error and was very co-operative –

and he lives in Canterbury.”

A 31-year-old motor-cyclist

suffered life-threatening injuries

when he collided with a car on

the Christchurch Akaroa Rd at

about 4pm.

He suffered an “open book

pelvis fracture” intensive care

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News..................................... 3-11

BAY HARBOUR News has a new

reporter – Sarla Donovan.

Sarla has a teaching

background, though she did train

as a journalist before opting to go

into an education career.

However, several months ago

she decided to make a break

from the classroom and landed a

reporter’s job at Star Media which

publishes Bay Harbour News and

several other community newspapers,

and The Star.

She has been filing articles for

our other papers but this week

she moves onto Bay Harbour – a

logical step because she lives in

the area.

Sarla’s contact details are below

on page 2 so feel free to call or

email her with great local stories

and ideas.

And if you’re wondering what’s

happened to reporter Caitlin

Miles, she’s going to do a Sarla –

train to be a teacher.

No skate ramp during holidays

Fashion


• By Sarla Donovan

SUMNER KIDS won’t have a

skate ramp for the July school

holidays.

Sumner Green and Skate

Group was hoping to reopen

the temporary skate ramp

last week, but the process of

working through noise, legal

and consultation issues has been

slower than anticipated.

Skate group member

Gardening

Kimberley

Mossman (right)

was disappointed.

“It is frustrating

as we were

working towards

July 1,” she said.

However, it was

important they followed correct

Motoring

procedures, make sure all

the boxes had been ticked, she

said.

“Although it is temporary, it

has got to work for everybody.

We don’t want to annoy

anyone.”

The temporary skate ramp at

36 Wakefield Ave was shut down

on February 10 when it failed to

Tasty Bites

comply with the city plan’s noise

standards.

Since then, the group has

been working with the city

council to find a place to put

CLOSED: The Sumner skate ramp on Wakefield Ave was closed earlier this year when city

council ran noise tests and found it did not comply with noise standards.

the ramp while plans for a more

permanent structure are put

together.

City council head of parks and

recreation, Andrew Rutledge,

said the ramp is proposed to

go on public land and cannot

open until a resource consent

is obtained due to noise

requirements of the district plan.

He said the city council would

be talking to neighbours closest

to the proposed site “within the

next fortnight.”

There were no residential

neighbours within 30m of the

site that he was aware of.

Meanwhile, a community

workshop will be held on July

24 at 6pm at the Redcliffs

Mt Pleasant Bowling Club to

allow the community to have

their say on what they believe

is important in a permanent

skate park site, to be located

somewhere between Ferrymead

and Sumner.

In Brief

NEW OWNER FOR BISTRO

The Cornershop Bistro in Sumner

has a new owner. Auckland chef

Jugraj Singh bought the business

in early June and will operate it

with the help of his sister. The

restaurant closed for a three week

renovation on June 14. However,

problems with the floor mean it

will be closed for an extra two

weeks. The new owners plan to

keep many of the same dishes

and will retain the name. They

hope to reopen by the end of this

month.

QUAY CLOSURE

Cyrus Williams Quay was closed

on Monday as construction

begins on the new, fully serviced

walk-on marina. Public access to

surrounding sites at Naval Point,

including the public slip on Cyrus

Williams Quay, will remain open.

The affected section of Cyrus

Williams Quay will be closed

until April 2018.

$5k for youth trust

Shoreline Youth Trust has

received a $5000 grant to go

towards a leadership development

programme. The Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board approved the grant to go

towards the Sumner-based trust.

The programme aims to develop

leadership skills in young people

in the Sumner and Redcliffs area.

Exhibition celebrating women’s art

A PORT Levy artist is behind

Women’s Art Shown Here, an

Ms Lee said although each

artist had her own style, “as

women, we feel a natural

inclination to draw together,

to gather, support and encourage.

The reason may be as

simple as companionship

or inclusion but mostly it’s

because we love art.”

museums were more likely to

feature work by men rather

than women, Ms Lee said.

“Over the last few years, galleries

have begun to acknowledge

and redress the gender

balance with both the Tate

art exhibitions. But women are

still sadly underrepresented.”

poet’s life

• From page 1

As a young

filmmaker, such

accolades were

important to building

a portfolio and

helping get more

work, he said.

He made the

documentary while

still a student at the

Felix

Vaunois

New Zealand Broadcasting School

last year.

Originally from Auckland, Mr

Vaunois fell in love with the port

town while living in Christchurch.

“It’s such a beautiful mix of

industry and art. It seems an ancient

idea to be a poet in today’s society

but communities like Lyttelton

enable this to happen.”

The documentary was also entered

in the Sundance Ignite Challenge in

Utah, a competition for filmmakers

between 18 and 24, where it was

named in the top 25 out of 400

entries.

Mr Vaunois said he hoped to show

the film in Lyttelton as a final release

sometime this year.

Richard Jolly

Former oil trader finds reward

Your Local Views

Teacher Richard Jolly is

head of social science at

Linwood College but in

his former life, he was a

London-based oil trader

who travelled the world.

Sarla Donovan talks to

him about what a trader

does and why he moved

ews

to Christchurch

Oil trader to social studies

teacher – why the change?

To do something worthwhile

and bring up a family in

Christchurch. I taught in Camp

America for a year before oil

ashion

trading and loved it. I wanted to

go back to it; teaching students is

very rewarding – and there’s not

many oil trading jobs here.

It sounds exotic.

It is exotic. I travelled to many

countries – the United States

lots of times, Egypt and Russia

and the Baltic States. I was

based in London, but did a lot

Gardening

of work Hamburg and Zug

in Switzerland. It’s a great life,

but if you have small children

you never see them. I spent

hours and hours oil trading

and realised one day, sitting

at my desk that I was paying a

nanny to take my daughter to

the beach. That’s really when

I decided to make the change.

That was 14 years ago. We

moved from Switzerland to New

Zealand and I trained at the

New Zealand Graduate School

of Education. My wife Beth is

from Methven but it wasn’t all

her choice, she certainly wasn’t

putting the pressure on to come

back.

What do oil traders need to

be good at, what’s involved?

You need to be good with

people, good with numbers

and good at making decisions.

I’d make contacts in different

countries, buy large quantities

of oil, organise shipping, ship

it halfway across the world,

hedge the price using the futures

market, talk to refineries to

process it. So, you have to work

with a lot of different people.

Are there any similarities

between the two jobs?

Not a lot – the lunches are

quite different! You’re still

working with people

though, that’s the same.

So were you

here during the

earthquakes?

Yes . . . but I wish I wasn’t.

How did they affect

you?

Not good.

We lost our

house in the

February 2011

earthquake

and like many,

it took six years

to get it replaced.

Meanwhile, we

moved 13 times,

including one

year back in

the UK.

I was offered a job back in oil

trading when we went back but

chose to stay in teaching and

worked in a very posh English

public school, Dauntsey’s.

So Linwood’s not the only

school you’ve taught at?

No, prior to the earthquake

I worked at Catholic

Cathedral College, which I

very much enjoyed, and

only left because my

house was destroyed.

I commuted in

from Methven

for a few

months but

then got

a job at

Mt Hutt

College followed by a spell back

at Dauntsey’s.

Did you grow up in the

countryside back in the UK?

I grew up in a town called

Beaconsfield, just outside of

London, and it was great but the

town has now been swallowed

by London commuters and is

not really very nice now.

Are your family still back in

the UK?

Yes, people are still around.

My parents have lived in the

same place for 52 years and I

try to get back every year or

18 months. I also have four

brothers over in that part of the

world.

PEOPLE: Teaching and oil trading are both peoplefocused

jobs, says Richard Jolly.

Did you attend a co-ed school like

Linwood?

No, I went to a boys grammar school; we

were academics and rugby. The teachers

wore gowns and it was very formal. The

school was good for me, it got me into

Cambridge University where I studied

engineering. It was amazing – I was there

for three years – we had our bicycles, played

sport, rugby and hockey. And from there I

won a scholarship to do my masters in the

US, then became an oil trader.

Your three kids must keep you pretty

busy these days. Do you find time for

sports or hobbies?

I sometimes think I run a taxi service;

football, ballet, gymnastics. Weekends

involve cheering my kids on in their

sports and trying to get out myself for a

hit of tennis or a round of golf. I think it’s

important that we find time to balance our

lives, it makes you a better parent and a

better teacher.

Where are you off to in the school

holidays?

We’re heading over to Australia for

a family holiday. Very much looking

forward to it.

REPAIRS TO damaged pavers in Akaroa

were not completed by the end of June as

city council staff said they would be.

After Sue Stewart, 67, tripped over

cracked and uneven tiles on Beach Rd last

month, she spray-painted them to point

the hazards out to other people to stop

them from having the same fate.

City council staff said the repairs would

be completed within the month – but as of

June 30, they hadn’t been finished.

Contractors had started the work, but

the damaged areas had been blocked off

and the broken paver removed.

Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner said

contractors were waiting for a series of

“fine days” before the work could resume,

and then it would be completed within a

week.

Cr Turner met with Ms Stewart two

weeks ago to talk about the situation with

FRUSTRATED: Sue Stewart has made

loose pavers which led to Ms Stewart’s

accident and, while he was there, they went

around Akaroa and looked at other issues.

Cr Turner said Ms Stewart’s local

knowledge was “really good to use”.

He has taken photos of other loose

pavers and repairs that need to be carried

out and has sent them on to the city

council for contractors.

Cr Turner said it was “timely” to get the

repairs sorted before spring and summer

when tourist numbers start to increase

again.

HILLS MP Ruth Dyson

is “delighted” at plans to

reprogram traffic lights

at the St Andrews Hill

intersection, designed

to ease confusion for

motorists.

None of the three

options presented for

public consultation

earlier this year were green

lighted by the Linwood-

Gardening

Central-Heathcote

Community Board.

The most popular and

option, favoured by 372 of

640 respondents, needed to

be funded through the city

council’s Long Term

Plan, and the board felt

it would be better to trial

some alternatives in the

meantime, due to the

high level of concern

from residents.

Instead, the community

board decided

to change the light phasing,

which will be trialled for three

months and install signs on

Bridle Path Rd to slow traffic.

The changes will mean the

Rd traffic lights will be reprogrammed

to allow for vehicles

wanting to turn right off St

Andrews Hill Rd onto Bridle

across a lane.

Ms Dyson applauded the

moves as sensible.

“They’re taking a low-cost

and in my view, smart option.

It may or may not work but

it’s worth trialling. If it doesn’t

work, then they’ll have to try

something else. But we could

have a win-win here.”

In last month’s Bay Harbour

News, Ms Dyson expressed

concern the consultation

would amount to nothing.

“It looks like city council

staff are going to recommend

the board just receives

the information from the

consultation process. There is

no suggestion that anything is

actually done as a result,” she

wrote in a column.

City council staff will advise

the community board on the

success of the trial before it

makes a submission on the

Long Term Plan.

THE BEGINNING of on-site

Heritage New Zealand’s

Māori Heritage Council

chairman, John Clarke, turned

the first sod at the ceremony

last week.

A karakia whakanoa by

Kerepeti Paraone from Te

Hapū o Ngāti Wheke was

followed by speeches from Mr

Clarke, Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner and Heritage New

Zealand Pouhere Taonga chief

executive Andrew Coleman.

The $3 million project is

expected to be completed by

the end of April next year.

“We have been delighted

with the positive feedback,

particularly from the local

community, about the project,”

Heritage Destinations general

manager Nick Chin said.

“The return of the timeball

tower and timeball, which will

drop each day as it did from

1876 to 2011, will fit nicely

with the regeneration of the

port town that is going on.

Having a familiar sight on the

Lyttelton skyline is important

not only for the community,

but (for the) country, given its

strong maritime history.”

Saturday 8 –

Saturday 22 July 2017

We said:

The cleanliness of the

Lyttelton Tunnel is being

questioned, with Lyttelton

residents wanting more

done to keep it clean

You said:

Jane McCulla – I have just

read the article in the recent

Bay Harbour News and I totally

agree with Ken Maynard, the

tunnel is a disgrace. I have used

it regularly over the past seven

years, and I remember it being

much cleaner before the quakes.

It has got really dirty and

unkempt, I honestly think it

needs to be cleaned more often.

The ceiling is made of yellow

tiles but it is just black now.

A real shame. I say fix the

cleaning machine or buy a new

one. It’s not good for drivers

going through breathing in the

dust and grime . . . probably

carcinogenic, never mind the

look of it . . . not very inviting

coming in to Lyttelton.

Tony Carrabes – I think

it’s the best maintained tunnel

in the world because every

weekday night the tunnel is

completely closed to traffic for

maintenance.

Peter Thompson – Well, for

those that don’t remember, they

CLEAN: The walls of the Lyttelton Tunnel are cleaned every three weeks, but some Lyttelton

residents think it needs to be done more frequently.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

used to have cleaning crews for

the tunnel way back in time. I

believe they used to have trucks

with brushes on going through

every few days to keep the tiles

clean.

Tracy Journée – I’ve lived

in Lyttelton for 23 years. Of

course I have noticed how dirty

the tunnel walls have been since

the February and June 2011

earthquakes, who hasn’t. Clearly

there has been a breach in the

tunnel lining in places that has

not been properly addressed yet,

maybe never will be.

Perhaps if cleaning was more

frequent it would have a better

chance of keeping up with the

grime. However, if extra cleaning

schedules went ahead at this

point in time, this would also

mean more tunnel delays.

This would be just unbearable

as we currently share the tunnel

with so many port tankers and

other dangerous goods vehicles

that cannot do their original

route around through Evans

Pass to Sumner. The regular

and constant delays that these

vehicles have caused over the

years have worn me out. Just

recently there was a half-hour

delay with the breakdown of a

logging truck in the tunnel.

I believe it has been poor form

and poor planning from the port

company and our city council

to have not fast tracked this

important alternate route out of

Lyttelton through Evans Pass.

So, while I couldn’t agree more

that our once shiny and white

Lyttelton Tunnel looks more like

the armpit of a gorilla on steroids

most days, I would also like to

plead, please, no more delays in

our tunnel until Evans Pass is

safe for traffic again.

Health Tips

Protect yourself for up to 3 months from cold & flu

It’s coming into the time of year to be thinking about prevention of colds & flu.

Buccaline is an oral antibacterial prophylaxis for the prevention of secondary

bacterial infections associated with cold and flu. Buccaline provides active

immunisation against bacterial colds. Illnesses of the upper respiratory are

often caused by bacterial infections. Viral and influenza-like illnesses are

frequently made worse by an additional bacterial infections and take longer

to recover from. Immunology investigations show that Buccaline significantly

improves resistance to colds and flu. Protection becomes effective after taking

the last set of tablets. To maintain effectiveness as well as taking Buccaline

at the beginning of the cold season take it again in the middle of the cold

season. Tablets should be swallowed whole with some liquid one-hour before

breakfast or lunch.

Ask your pharmacist if

Buccaline is right for you.

Note: Buccaline is not

intended as an alternative

to influenza vaccination.

Pharmacist-Only medicine.

David Lloyd – Yes,

there are other more

important issues than

this. However, this is just

another example of how

city council maintenance

levels have dropped significantly

under this present

administration. The city is

a disgrace with unkempt

parks and reserves, weeds

choking the city – the

whole place looks untidy.

Regular maintenance is

necessary to keep the city

tidy and this is not happening.

John Thacker – I

drive though it on a regular

basis. I think that the

tunnel is kept in as good

a state as possible. It is

obvious the damage from

the earthquakes and one

can see where new seepage

is now. Don’t think that

it affects the usage at all.

Maybe if the Sumner road

was opened it might help?

As for tourists . . . what

tourists. It’s a busy working

port with an enormous

amount of heavy vehicles

transiting it every day, 24

hours a day

Jillian Nuth – It used

to be spotless. The ‘toothbrush’

truck was always

around. What the heck

happened?

Katrina Prendergast

– The tunnel used to be

cleaned in the early hours

daily – I’m talking a good

20-30 years ago. So recently,

a by-law was introduced

that all vehicles had to have

their loads covered because

they were having to clean

‘x’ amount of tonnes every

couple of days or so. Did

this achieve anything? No.

How about just get back to

cleaning daily.

We said:

Traffic lights at

the St Andrews Hill

intersection will be

You said:

Graeme Nottage – I

attended the community

board meeting at which

this was discussed. While

Caitlin Miles’ report is

accurate in that none of

the three options was given

the green light, it does not

truly reflect the tenor of the

discussion.

Based on the discussion

between board members,

it would be fair to say that

the board favoured option

2 (additional lights); the

option which received

most support from the

community (372 of the 640

submissions). However,

the board received advice

from city council officers

that funding for this

option would have to be

applied for through the

council long term planning

procedures; a delay which

would not meet the level

of concern from residents

about the dangers of the

intersection.

Therefore, the board

supported the proposal of

Cr Templeton for a trial

change to light phasing

to hold traffic turning left

PERPLEXING:

MARTIN

HUNTER

from Sumner into Bridle

Path Rd. Combined with

measures to slow traffic approaching

the intersection

in Bridle Path Rd, the trial

has a chance of achieving

the goal of improved safety

for those using the intersection.

If the trial allays

public concern, and doesn’t

have other adverse effects,

obviously it will become a

permanent solution. However,

if it is not successful,

the expectation is that the

board would apply for the

funding for additional

lights.

It is ‘devoutly to be

wished’ that the trial is successful.

Otherwise, a solution

to this most confusing,

and dangerous, of intersections

is a long way off.

Gary Iliffe – I am a

dad that drops off kids at

Mt Pleasant School every

morning and picks them

up each day. These are two

of the busiest times of day

and I can promise you that

I see no problem at all with

the intersection. People

need to really stop wasting

the city council’s time and

have a little bit of patience.

The longest I have had to

wait in line coming down

the hill has been one to two

minutes behind, at most,

or about five cars. I think if

you did a study of it, even a

one-eyed Cantabrian could

use that intersection with

ease. Well done to the city

council and those at traffic

control, as it’s better than

it ever was. Perhaps a wee

adjustment of the left arrow

off Bridle Path Rd to go for

a few seconds longer?

Now is the time to

check boat safety

News

Lyttelton based navigational

safety officer Gary Manch

writes about using the

winter months to ensure

boats comply with new

safety bylaws.

Fashion

WITH WINTER upon us with

all its vengeance, it might be a

good time for those of you who

have your boats at home to get

them ready for the summer and

ensure you comply with the new

rules in the Navigation Safety

Bylaw 2016.

On October 10, 2016, the new

bylaw came into force, bringing

with it a number of changes that

Gardening

impact on you as boaties.

The first change, under part

five, relates to the wearing of

life jackets. This is a big one

for personal safety. Prior to the

change, some of you in your

dinghies, kayaks, canoes and

paddle boards were allowed to

carry a life jacket if you were

Motoring

under way and had made a

conscious decision that it was

safe to do so.

Our new bylaw has taken that

decision out of your hands and

Pirate’s Corner

you are now required to wear

a life jacket at all times when

under way on a vessel 6m long

or less. This includes paddle

boarders except when physically

involved in riding breaking

waves – note a leg strap must be

attached.

The second change you might

like to get on to over the winter,

if you haven’t already, is that

your vessel needs to be identified.

Part 20 of the Navigation

Safety Bylaw 2016 applies here.

If you have a vessel of any type

that goes on the water, you need

to read and comply with this

part of the bylaw.

Visit https://www.ecan.govt.

nz/do-it-online/harbourmastersoffice/recreational-boating/

and

check out part 20 to find out how

this affects you, or alternatively

give me a call through our

customer services line 0800 324

636.

It is incumbent on you as a

boat owner/skipper to ensure

you are aware of the relevant

bylaws and maritime rules. They

are all available online. Captain

Google is a great place to start to

find this information.

When you have a quiet

moment on a cold winter night,

checkout Maritime Rule 91 and

22 as well. Knowledge is power.

That’s it from me, stay warm.

Lyttelton Arts Factory celebrated its first birthday on

Saturday night with a cabaret show featuring a line-up of

world-renowned New Zealand performers. Contortionist

Skye Broberg, entertainer Lizzie Tollemache (above),

comedy star Shay Horay and international performer

MulletMan put on a spectacular show to an appreciative

crowd on Saturday night. The birthday cabaret marked one

year since the Lyttelton Arts Factory (formerly The Loons

Theatre) raised $500,000 to open a new theatre.

Win puts Bays another

goal closer to MPL title

• By Gordon Findlater

FERRYMEAD BAYS have the

Mainland Premier League title

within their grasp after a dramatic

3-2 win over Coastal Spirit at the

weekend.

Bays trailed 1-2 with five minutes

remaining, scoring two late goals in a

remarkable comeback.

Coastal took the lead when Guillermo

Schuhmacher scored two goals

in the first half. His second six minutes

before the break was a contender

for goal of the season.

Trailing 0-2 at half-time, Bays

made two changes and pulled a

goal back on the hour when Coastal

scored an own goal.

Bays dominated the final period.

Jacob Allen chipped coastal keeper

Eddie Ashton to level the score with

five to play. Ashton then brought

down Mark Peers in the area, which

earned him a second yellow card.

Coastal striker Jordan Ball took

over the gloves but could not prevent

Andreas Wilson scoring from the

resulting penalty, which sealed the

win for Bays.

The win means that Bays are two

points behind Cashmere Technical

with a game in hand. The two teams

meet in the next round of the MPL

on July 22.

Both Cashmere and Bays have won

four MPL titles and are looking to

become the first club to claim five.

SUMNER extended their lead

at the top of the section two

metro rugby competition, in

what coach Martin Dodgson

described as an “un-Sumner

like” performance against

Belfast.

The 24-5 score line would

indicate Sumner were never

challenged at Sheldon Park on

Saturday. However, Dodgson

believes the team has much

to work on going into their

final round-robin game of the

season.

“We didn’t compete and I

was very concerned to see our

scrum going backwards. We

were off about five per cent”

Funny Kid for President

by Matt Stanton

Meet the funny kid! Because every kid loves to

laugh.

Every kid wants to laugh, but Max is the boy who

can make it happen.

He’s the class clown, the punch line and he’s even

volunteered his bottom to be the butt of the joke. Max is the

funny kid ... and he’s running for class president.

Poop scandals, stalker ducks, surprise debates, psycho sports teachers, tell-all

interviews and the great library vomit-a-geddon are just some of the things in

store for Max and his friends at Redhill Middle School this election season.

For fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Tom Gates and Big Nate, FUNNY KID is the

hilarious new series from bestselling children’s author Matt Stanton.

Ages 8-12 Praise for FUNNY KID: ‘Funny Kid for President is a fast-paced read

with an engaging protagonist. From page one, we are immediately thrown

into Max Walburt’s world … Humour is injected into every page, making the

story a great magnet for younger readers, including those who struggle to read

independently.’ - CBCA Reading Time

Jarulan by the River

by Lily Woodhouse

‘A sprawling and surprising story of love, grief, loss and change that crosses

generations and continents’ Kate Forsyth.

Matthew Fenchurch, patriarch and landowner of the northern NSW property

Jarulan, lives in a grand decaying folly, invaded by ghosts and the local fauna.

His wife is dead, one son has fallen on a battlefield in France, and another

lives in exile as a remittance man on a marae in New Zealand. His only

company are the farmhands, an old family servant and a part-time laundry

maid with dreams above her station.

When Matthew builds a memorial above the river for his brave lost son – and

all the boys of the district who have died fighting for King and Country – his

daughters and grandchildren return for the unveiling. They bring with them

someone who will change life at Jarulan forever, who will fight the ghosts of

the past and the claimants of the present, and ensure a dynasty, though not as

anyone expected.

Epic, sensuous, brimming with wildlife, love, beauty, babies, ill deeds,

revenge, and unions – illicit and condoned – JARULAN BY THE RIVER is a

glorious story of passion and redemption. A novel with the magic of Colleen

McCullough, Bryce Courtenay and Cloudstreet.

New treatment for fungal nails

Feet First, the long-established podiatry

clinic in Upper Riccarton, now has a

much more efficient and effective means

of dealing with the problem of fungal

nails, thanks to a new machine they

recently obtained from Britain, where it

was designed and trialled.

Clearanail is a procedure where the

Podiatrists use a machine to make tiny

holes in the nail without affecting the nail

bed – a completely pain-free procedure

that then allows the topical application of

antifungal solution to directly reach the

problem area.

Fungal nails may cause the toenail to

thicken, which consequently can make

shoes feel uncomfortable. Anyone who

believes they have a fungal infection

of the nails is invited to make an

appointment for a consultation with Feet

First so one of the qualified Podiatrists

can assess if that is the case, and if so, will

recommend the Clearanail procedure.

This involves the initial treatment, and

three follow-up appointments at monthly

intervals to check progress.

“Fungal nail infections won’t disappear

immediately,” clinic director Charlotte

Russell says, “so people need to commit

to the process, which can take up to four

months as the nail grows.”

She says now is an ideal time to start

fungal nail treatment with Clearanail, so

nails will be looking healthy again when

the warm, sandal-wearing weather arrives.

Feet First has an introductory offer on

Clearanail until the end of July.

Call them on 348-7910 for details.

The Clearanail machine and related products.

In addition to offering this highly

effective treatment, Feet First has another

unique feature – the Shoe Room. Here,

clients can browse through a wide

selection of ‘fashionable, functional

footwear’ for men and women that not

only provides support and comfort, but

also looks modern and attractive.

The four registered and experienced

Feet First Podiatrists offer the full range

of podiatry services for all ages and all

conditions, with customised treatment

provided for every client. They also offer a

range of quality foot treatment products,

including the German brand Gehwol.

The clinic at 37 Main South Road is

open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to

5pm, with late nights on Monday and

Thursday to 7pm by appointment. The

Shoe Room is open Monday to Friday

Above: Clinic director Charlotte Russell displays one of the modern boot styles

available in the Shoe Room. Below: The Feet First reception area.

9am-4pm. There is on-site parking

available.

Feet First also runs several satellite

clinics. These are at the Marshland

Family Health Centre, Marshland

Road on Mondays, the Redcliffs

Clinic, Augusta Street, on Wednesday

afternoon and Friday morning, the

Waltham Medical Centre, Waltham

Road on Wednesday afternoon, and at

Darfield Pharmacy on Friday.
