DISCUSSION: An idea to allow contractors to apply for a parking permit to let them park on the road for longer periods of time will be discussed on Thursday in a city council

committee meeting.

Contractor parking permit

may not be approved

ANDREW KING

A proposed contractor parking

permit system that would allow

workers to park longer outside

where they are working, may

not get city council approval.

Contractor parking permits

were the idea of Merivale resident

Dr Stuart Gowland after he

lobbied the Fendalton-Waimairi

Community Board saying some

contractors have vehicles too

big to fit on some properties and

needed to park on the road.

He said there is a similar

system operated by the Devon

County Council in the United

Kingdom.

The board asked city council

staff to investigate the idea of

permits.

The new permit system would

cost $15,000 to set up and

$10,000 per year to run.

But staff have recommended

to keep the current, permission

based system, due to the new

A city council committee

Dr Gowland can put his case

forward.

Cr Gough said most things

in this world are susceptible to

fraud and that was not a valid

excuse to not proceed.

“Identifying that fraud could

be an issue is great, now we can

find a solution to it.”

Cr Gough said it would be a

Belfast Community Network

to stay in Sheldon Park home

ANDREW KING

After many shifts since the

February 2011 earthquake,

Belfast Community Network

now has a permanent home.

The organisation has just

signed a 33 year lease with the

city council for its Sheldon

Park home.

The earthquake caused its

former home at the old Presbyterian

church on Main North

Rd to be red stickered and then

demolished.

The organisation built the

Sheldon Park facility in 2013

for $468,000.

It moved into the Belfast

Rugby Club for two months in

2013 until the new facility was

constructed.

Previous to that they had

been at Belfast School after

being relocated after the earthquake

from its original site.

The lease will not allow it

to expand its current facilities

but it is hopeful it will be able

to negotiate for a small storage

unit to house Belfast emergency

response plan equipment.

EXCITED: Children involved in the Belfast Community Network holiday programme are thrilled they will

have a facility to use to for many years to come.

Belfast Community Network

chief executive Lynda Goodrick

said they are right where they

need to be to provide a fantastic

service to the community.

“The BCN is thrilled to

finally have a permanent lease

to remain on Sheldon Park,”

she said.

She said it has been a long

journey, around four years, but

the support of city council staff

and elected members has meant

that they are now able get back

to doing the work in our community

that is required.

“Now that we have secured

this we can focus on our strategic

plan knowing that we are

secure and have somewhere to

operate from,” she said.

ALI JONES BOWS OUT

City councillor Ali Jones will not

be standing for re-election for the

city council in the October local

body race. She will run for the

Papanui-Innes Community Board

and said she is strongly invested in

the area and wants to be a part of

the new board. The mother-of-two

said she needs time to look after

herself and her family.

CRASH IN MAIREHAU

A man in his 70s was taken to

Christchurch Hospital with moderate

injuries after a crash in Mairehau.

St John sent an ambulance to

the scene at about 4pm, which was

a crash between a car and scooter.

SUSPICIOUS FIRE

A tree fire in Jellie Park last

Tuesday is being treated as

suspicious. A fire crew from the

Harewood station arrived at the

scene about 2.20am to find the tree

well involved. The fire was on the

Greers Rd side of Jellie Park and is

being investigated by police.

BOY IN HOSPITAL

A boy was taken to Christchurch

Hospital with serious injuries on

Sunday after being hit by a car in

Burnside. St John sent two rapid

response units and an ambulance

to the scene on Wairakei Rd, near

Spalding St, around 4pm. The boy,

who is under 10, was assessed at

the scene and taken to hospital for

further treatment.

Housing subsidy still needed

A Government heating and

insulation subsidy programme

comes to an end in June.

Community Energy Action

Charitable Trust chief executive

Caroline Shone writes this week’s

column about the importance

of the programme and why it

should continue in some form.

Shelter is one

of the most basic

of human needs

and the Universal

Declaration

of Human Rights

says that everyone

has the right

to housing.

It can be debated that housing

that makes people sick, isn’t housing

at all.

However houses that are damp,

houses that are cold, with the

people living in them unable to

heat them to an adequate temperature

to keep them healthy, are

a reality for many households in

Christchurch.

The old, the young and the sick

suffer most in those houses.

We all know the result.

Every winter sees many residents

ending up in hospital with

preventable cold-related health issues.

Even healthy people get sick

more often in those cold, damp

houses.

SOAP

BOX

From experience we know that

installing insulation and heating

in people’s homes especially those

with health conditions will reduce

hospitalisations, delivering cost

savings to the health system.

Installing insulation and heating

is a one-off cost but the benefits

last a long time, saving money on

health and saving lives every year.

The Government through the

Energy Efficiency and Conservation

Authority (EECA) have spent

$450 million nationwide on insulation

and heating subsidies over

the last couple of years.

And we know it has made a

difference.

The current subsidy programme

comes to an end in June this year.

It would be fantastic if subsidies

would be available in the future

for those who need insulation.

It’s a great way for Christchurch

people to help those in their community

who need a bit of help to

create a warm, dry, healthy home.

Car parks planned for

Rutland St could be axed

ANDREW KING

Ten new car parks planned for

Rutland St, St Albans, are unlikely

to get the go-ahead.

City council staff have recommended

that the car parks on the

east side of Rutland St, between

Weston Rd and Chapter St, not

proceed.

They have recommended

instead to retain the plan put

forward in the February 16 meeting,

which means parking will

be available on the west side of

Rutland St only.

The city council’s infrastructure,

transport and environment committee

will make a decision on

Thursday.

City council staff were asked

to investigate if extra parking

could be added by the committee

in the February meeting after

it approved the Papanui Parallel

Cycleway.

Staff have provided three options

for the committee to consider

– parking on the west side

of Rutland St only, parking on

both side of the street meaning

trees will have to be removed or

angle parking on Weston Rd and

parking only on the west side of

Rutland St.

One stop shop for

all your dental needs

Warm, friendly & affordable dental care for the whole family...

POSSIBLE PARKING LOSS: Recommendations from city council staff is

that parking on the east side of Rutland St (left), between Weston Rd and

Chapter St, not be installed after the Papanui Parallel Cycleway is built.

The recommendation is extra

parking not be installed as Chapter

St and Weston Rd are lightly

parked, have sufficient capacity

and no time restrictions providing

parking close for residents and the

church.

The committee will also

decide if they will monitor the

intersections of Springfield Rd,

St Albans St and Springfield,

Edgeware Rds for 12 months,

after the cycleway’s completion,

to see if traffic signals are needed.

If the monitoring suggests signals

are needed then it will plan

their installation in the next long

term plan.

It is estimated that installation

of traffic signals at each

intersection will cost $200,000 to

$250,000 and will remove about

six to eight parks each.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Will Rutland

St need more parking or will

there be enough without

spending more money? Share

Amputee’s story told

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

When Trixie Wuts was born

her parents had a very difficult

decision to make whether or not

to amputate both of her legs to the

knee.

On the advice of medical professionals,

Trixie’s parents Anton

and Margot Wuts decided amputation

was the best solution.

Their experience has been

documented in a children’s book

that they wrote, called Little Jellybean.

It is being distributed by the

Amputee Society of Canterbury

and Westland to help families facing

a similar choice.

The society helped get a $5000

grant for the publishing and

distribution of the book from the

Artificial Limb Service.

Trixie was diagnosed with distal

arthrogryposis before she was

born, meaning she had crooked or

hooked joints in her feet.

She had many procedures done

when she was born, which attempted

to correct the deformities

in both of her feet, but they were

largely unsuccessful.

The surgery however, was and

Trixie now “leads a full and active

life” with her new feet.

Amputee Society of Canterbury

and Westland president Mark

Bruce said the more families that

can be reached with the book, the

better.

“It’s about raising awareness

for parents in a situation where

their child is very unwell. The

story is mainly about the parents

having to make an incredibly

tough decision to help their children,”

he said.

Mr Bruce said the book will

become an invaluable source for

those looking for support.

“If you have a young one with

an amputation or have a young

one about to undergo an amputation

then this is a great resource.

“The future of the federation is

in its youth . . . If we can affect

just one family with the help of

this book, then it’s been a worthwhile

venture,” he said.

The society are making copies

of the book available from

their national and regional coordinators,

who can be contacted

on www.af.org.nz.

Mona Vale in line for award

Mona Vale Lodge is one of

35 finalists in the this year’s

Canterbury Heritage Awards.

The building sustained

damage in the February 2011

earthquake predominantly from

the collapse of the two masonry

chimneys.

Repairs to the building were

finished two weeks ago at a cost

of $589,000.

A panel of five judges

whittled the list down from 80

entries into six categories –

domestic and

saved, public

realm and

saved, outstanding

contribution

to heritage, seismic,

heritage

tourism and

future heritage.

Entries were received from a

wide variety of projects, from

walking tours and domestic

dwellings to furniture restorations

and public monuments.

Category winners and the

supreme overall winner will be

announced during a ceremony

held at the Christchurch Arts

Centre on June 9.

Christchurch Heritage Awards

Charitable Trust chairwoman Dr

Anna Crighton (above) said the

judges were incredibly impressed

with the standard of entries.

FINALIST: The recently repaired Mona Vale Lodge is a finalist in the

Canterbury Heritage Awards.

“Now that almost half of

our built heritage has been

demolished, appreciation

of what remains is evident.

The jurors agreed, without

exception, that every entry was

worthy in contributing to the

character and streetscapes of

our city and province,” she said.

Dr Crighton was joined on

the judging panel by four other

notable heritage experts –

Heritage Management Services

director Jenny May, Canterbury

University and Canterbury

Branch of the New Zealand

Institute of Architects chairman

Tim Nees, Heritage New

Zealand southern office general

manager Sheila Watson and

Ruamoko Solutions structural

engineer Grant Wilkinson.

Vacant section wanted for expansion

Community garden, parking planned for

empty section next to community centre

ANDREW KING

A city councillor wants a vacant

section adjacent to the St Albans

Community Centre to be bought

for future expansion.

Pauline Cotter (right)

has asked city council

staff to investigate the

purchase of the 463

sq m section at 130

Caledonian Rd valued

at $250,000.

She said the site

could be used as a community

garden and later extra car parking.

It has been four-and-a-half

years since the St Albans Resource

Centre was demolished

and a transitional facility run by

the St Albans Residents’ Association

put in its place.

Currently there is $3.2 million

in funding for the new centre.

While the money is not

currently in the budget, Cr

Cotter is under no illusion that

the city council will just say yes.

“We are looking to have a

good discussion around this

idea,” she said.

The Shirley-Papanui Community

Board voted on April 20 in

favour of asking staff to look at

buying the land to provide space

for extra car parking should it

be required for the new

centre.

Cr Cotter said buying

the land was a fantastic

opportunity, one she does

not want the city council

to look back in 20 years

and kick themselves for

not taking.

“You don’t normally get

to purchase an empty site right

beside a community facility,”

she said.

The land in the meantime will

add to the project by providing

space for a garden.

“When we redevelop the new

centre we will lose the front

garden so having another out

back would be great,” Cr Cotter

said.

Phillip Mitchell

‘Filthy’ work with pipes and plumbing

AT WORK: Phillip Mitchell has been a plumbing tutor at the Ara Institute

of Canterbury for many years. At 73, he is still going strong working three

days a week. ​

Phillip Mitchell has had his hand in the city’s pipes

for half a century. He talks with Matthew Salmons

about his life as a plumber, being a tutor and

winning the Graeme Victor Smith Outstanding

Contribution to the Industry Award

Well Phillip, you’re clearly

the plumbing master around

here, but why did you decide

to get into the trade in the

first place?

My father went with me to a

vocational guidance counsellor

in the square. The guy that was

interviewing me said ‘I know

a bloke by the name of Athol

Jamieson.’ He knew him on a

fairly friendly basis so I went

and saw him. He had a fairly

large company and said ‘there’s

a job there if you want it.’ I’d

seen plumbers, we’d not long

had the sewerage put on in the

house and a flush toilet put in,

which you guys would take for

granted now. I was fascinated.

So I thought ‘it’s not a bad idea’,

and that’s what it was.

So when did you start your

apprenticeship?

In the days when I did my apprenticeship,

you signed up for

what they called a 12,000 hour

apprenticeship which equates to

six years. In that era, when you

got to your fifth year you could

sit your license and if you passed

your exam you didn’t have to do

your sixth year, so there was a

lot of incentive there. In those

days it was about five pounds a

week which probably equates to,

I don’t know, $200 these days. A

tradesman now could get about

$30 an hour, about $1200 a week,

and an apprentice, well they

probably get more than $200, so

a lot of incentive there to pass. I

spent most of my apprenticeship

under a guy named Bill Walsh,

an Irish plumber, and also with

his brother John. They were

ship’s plumbers, they were fastidious.

If something happened it

was either right or it was wrong.

And after you finished your

apprenticeship did you stay

with the same company?

No, after I finished I left

plumbing for a wee while and I

did quantity surveying. It was a

very good experience and I was

fortunate that I had the trades

experience to do it. It was very

enjoyable.

Did you work on any big

projects?

I did, it was Wilkins and

Davies I was working for at the

time. The buildings at Canterbury

University were being built

then, and we worked on them.

That was straight out of my

apprenticeship, so when I left

that I went to learn about drain

laying. I’ve always enjoyed drain

laying. When you’re doing it, you

feel like you’ve achieved more

than you would working in a

bathroom. I did that for the best

part of a year, then I put the sewerage

into John Walsh’s house.

That was the practical part of

my exam. I started working for a

drain laying firm then, but they

went out of business, so at about

23 I started working for myself.

You knew nothing then, but that

was beside the point because

you thought you did and you had

to get experience the hard way.

So I was working for myself for

a while and I was doing some

tutoring at night. When you’re

tutoring and still in the trades,

to the students, you’re still a

plumber.

Working full time and tutoring

at nights, it must’ve taken a

toll on your social life?

still enjoyable after more than 50 years

27 when I finished that and when

you’re young you could burn the

candle at both ends a bit.

Where did you do your tutoring?

In town, it was called Christchurch

Technical College then

- it has had about three name

changes since then. It was only

one night a week at that stage.

That was about 1969, then me

and another guy started commercial

drain laying. We had a lot of

fun, we did all of the drainage

at QE II which was a monstrous

job, but we just got stuck in and

got on with it. We were young

and wishful, ‘of course we can

bloody well do it.’

Far out, was it only you two

doing the job?

No, we had 10 staff on. We updated

the Kaiapoi sewerage plant

as well. It was physical, hard

work but enjoyable. You were

outside all the time. Sometimes

you wore yourself out, but that’s

just life. We formed a partnership

called Mitchell and Rodgers. You

used to be filthy everyday, but

that’s part of your life and you

hope that you can look back on

your life and have enjoyed it.

How did it feel to receive that

award?

I thought why me? I’d started

in 2005 with just me, with another

tutor joining in 2006 and

another in 2007. We now have

eight, virtually a new tutor every

year. We do work for the Schools

Organisation and Ara managed

apprenticeships in plumbing and

gas fitting. We’ve grown and

grown, I have to ask myself, is

this real?

It’s been an absolutely fantastic

journey building this thing, I

have had some really great support,

and I didn’t do it alone by

any stretch of the imagination.

I’m putting back what I got out

of the industry. The biggest thing

for me is the recognition of offsite

job training.

Having been in the industry

so long, what sort of changes

have you seen?

Basically, when I started there

was a horrendous amount of

lead; it was the material of the

time for waste pipes, sewer pipes

and roof flashings. I only know

of two plumbers who got lead

poisoning. After that, it graduated

to Copper. Copper’s priced

itself out of the market now,

but it’s a marvellous material to

work with. We used to have to

fabricate everything, but now it’s

plastic and made fit for purpose.

The skill sets have changed due

to the change of materials.

And your family has been

supportive for all this time,

tutoring and working?

I could never have done it

without the support of my wife,

Beth, she’s always worked in the

background.

Where did you meet your

wife?

Through one of my cousins,

she was a friend of hers, they

bought us together, many years

ago now but that’s alright. We

went to the pictures, the usual

courting thing, it was different

then than it is today, 6 o’clock

closing, it was the 6 o’clock

swill. We went to dances and the

pictures, things like that, nothing

out of the ordinary.

Where did you grow up?

In Marshland Rd, bottom end,

so I’m not very far from home.

There wasn’t many houses. We

were in one of the houses at the

bottom end. It was still basically

farmlands, was still in the country

then. Shirley Lodge it was

called then, I don’t know what

it’s called now, we were midway

between that and Shirley Rd, but

we still lived in the country.

And where did you go to

school?

Shirley Primary of course,

my great-grandparents on one

side took up land on the side of

Marshland Rd, so it was pretty

family orientated from there.

Every kid’s good at school, I was

just an average kid at school.

I didn’t excel at anything. My

mother would’ve thought I was

outstanding.

Has your passion for plumbing

been passed on to your

kids?

No, I’ve got two daughters and

one grandson who is 32. I used to

take him on work experience, he

enjoyed it, and he could’ve done

it blind, but he said there was

too much to learn. But for the

students, I’ve chosen my path,

I have to sell them the industry.

I have to tell them the pluses

and the fun they’ll have on the

journey. You go to work for fun,

if you don’t enjoy your work, get

another job! I’ve got to be passionate

about the industry.

Not looking at retirement?

Well, I’m only working three

days a week, I treat it as a hobby

now, not a job. I’m going to be 74

in a fortnight, so I guess I’ll have

to sooner or later, but I’m still

enjoying it. You’ve got to look

Young player heads to UK

A St Andrew’s College footballer is set to

hit the international stage when he travels

to Northern Ireland for a tournament.

Ryan Nicholson, 16, has been selected

for one of two Under 17 New Zealand

teams travelling to Northern Ireland for

the Super Cup, formerly Milk Cup, in

July.

Nicholson said he was excited for the

chance to impress scouts and continue his

footballing career.

“Yeah I am pretty excited. It’s a huge

opportunity for me - I haven’t even met

the team or the coach yet,” he said.

Nicholson is the only Canterbury

representative in the side, and will travel

to Auckland for a two day training camp

before they leave for Europe in July.

He plays his football for the Coastal

Spirit men’s reserve team, and is also in

the St Andrew’s College first 11. He applies

his trade in the centre of midfield.

Nicholson has also played for Federation

and National Talent Centre squads.

PUSHING FORWARD: St

Ryan Nicholson has been

selected to represent New

Zealand in July.

But this will be his first time playing as a

New Zealand representative.

In preparation for the Super Cup, Nicholson’s

side will stop off in Barcelona and

London, and will train at the grounds of

professional Spanish club Espanyol and

English giants Chelsea.

Nicholson received the call up to the

squad after a strong performance in

the Auckland youth under 17 tournament

in March.

He said the opportunity to now play in

Europe is a “dream come true” for him.

From here he is aiming for the top.

“My goal would be to play internationally

and get a football scholarship,” he

said.

Nicholson said his great uncle played

football for Ireland, and so he “jumped”

at the opportunity to play there himself.

“I’m looking forward to the challenges

ahead and will gain experience from the

international games. The coaching will

further develop my game,” he said.

ORGANIC HORTICULTURE COURSES

Instruction in organic horticulture is

now well established at the Lincolnbased

Organic Training College. The

next year-long course, which begins

on 1st August, will be the ninth

intake for the college. Students need

no prior qualifications or experience

to commence Year One and can

study full or part-time. Those who

have some horticultural background

can go straight into Year Two.

An added appeal of the course is that

all fees are under $500, and full time

students are eligible to apply for a

loan or allowance through Studylink.

Course Director Bill Martin says it

works well to start the course year in

the spring. “The organic horticulture

course is all about growing so we

want to start the course in spring

when it is the right time to begin

planting.”

Year One students get plenty of

hands on training in subjects such as

sowing and planting organic crops,

soil management and composting.

The Year Two students have the

option of using land and facilities

on the Biological Husbandry Unit

(BHU) Farm to grow and sell their

own certified produce – a semicommercial

venture that gives

students a real taste of organic

horticulture as a business. The

students grow vegetables under the

guidance of a mentor and sell them

at a weekly stall at Lincoln University

“The Year Two programme gives the

students experience in a commercial

environment without any risk. It’s

the icing on the cake for a lot of the

students here,” says Bill Martin.

As well as the year-long organic

horticulture courses a distance

(correspondence) programme in

organics is also available.

The Organic Training College is

located at the Biological Husbandry

Unit at Lincoln University. There

are 10 hectares of certified organic

land as well as greenhouses, tunnel

houses and research areas.

Haircuts for Haircuts

Celebrating 30 years of great service

Haircuts for Haircuts are

celebrating – this year, they

turn 30. That’s 30 years of

reasonably-priced great

haircutting and 30 years of awesome,

friendly customer service.

It is rare for a small business to be so

successful for so long - Michelle has been

the driving force behind the two cutting

bars for the three decades. She believes

they have done so well because they go

above and beyond for their customers.

“We are already affordable, but we

offer discounts for pensioners, university

students and children on top of that,”

she explains. “We are here for the whole

family and we offer a welcoming, friendly

atmosphere to make the experience

enjoyable.”

It’s easy and convenient, too. Because

they are located in the Bush Inn Centre

and South City Mall, getting a haircut can

be combined with shopping and running

errands. They are open mall hours, 7 days

a week and there’s no need to be tied to an

appointment. Just head on in, take your

place and sit and relax while you wait.

There are usually 4 to 5 stylists working at

any time, so you’re never waiting for long.

But it’s much more than that – all their staff

are fully-qualified, professional stylists and

they focus on nothing but hair cutting.

That means they have expertise and will

take the time to find out what you want and

give you the best advice. They can deliver

trend-of-the-moment cuts or whatever a

client requests. They pride themselves on

the positive experience they offer so that

clients leave them looking good and feeling

great. The salons are up to the minute, but

Michelle has given them a taste of the past,

too, installing traditional barber’s chairs

in recognition of her 30 years’ anniversary

so the customers get to combine the

traditional with the ultra-modern.

Michelle knows that it’s customer loyalty

that has kept her in business for so long,

and repays customers with a loyalty scheme

where every 8th cut is free. She also offers

styling products so you can recreate your

salon look at home but her real aim is to

cater for the community by providing

fabulous haircuts for the whole family in

a friendly atmosphere and all at affordable

prices.

Call in to the Bush Inn salon on

the corner of Riccarton and Waimari

Road (telephone 3487008) or the South

City salon at 555 Colombo Street

(telephone 3660619).

Do your children lack selfconfidence,

or perhaps have

so much energy that they need

an outlet for it? Development

through drama is the ideal approach to

teach confidence and channel youthful

energy while building self-esteem.

The Helen O’Grady Drama Academy has

been in New Zealand for 32 years. This

highly regarded worldwide programme

helps students aged 5 to 17 fulfil their

potential by acting confidently and speaking

clearly. This unique, self-development

programme helps achieve invaluable life

skills. The confident, articulate child makes

friends easily, accepts challenges and new

directions. Confident children become

well-rounded adults.

Our fully qualified teachers are trained

in the Helen O’Grady Drama system,

they ensure each child is encouraged

and valued in a warm, positive learning

environment. Lessons stimulate and

motivate students without the exam or

peer group pressure. Weekly class activities

include speech training, creative movement

and improvisation. Our Youth Theatre

programme encourages the development

of leadership and organisational skills.

Three terms of the year cover the selfdevelopment

programme and in the fourth

term all students prepare a performance

for parents and friends. We also offer

Trinity College London examinations as

an option for those who wish to pursue an

international qualification.

Device to Prevent Snoring

Why put up with broken sleep,

when help is at hand with

Snorex, an appliance that

prevents snoring, sleep

apnoea, and dry and raw throats.

Snorex is custom-fitted to your mouth for

comfort, and a follow up service is provided.

Denise Lim has been involved with Snores

for 19 years and has had a 98% success rate

with people using the appliance. Snoring can

be a health hazard, causing sleep apnoea,

where the person actually stops breathing for

short periods.

It can cause short-term memory loss,

tiredness and contribute to high blood

pressure.

The Snorex device does not feel restrictive,

is non-invasive and carries a money-back

guarantee.

Many people are referred by ear, nose

and throat specialists, however, anyone can

phone for an appointment.

For an information pack or to discuss

the Snorex further, phone Denise Lim

on 383 0994 or check out the website

A Mother of All Gifts

Take the worry out of Mother’s Day!

Wondering what to buy Mum

when a box of chocolates or

hand-cream won’t do another

year round?

A clever Lower Hutt woman has given me

a new idea. When many of our mothers are

feeling the ache of ageing limbs, or suffer

with chronic pain or circulatory problems,

Jenny Watson’s Aircycle is a perfect self-help

answer. It’s totally transportable, folding to

fit your pocket, simple in concept, easy to use

and acclaimed by a growing number of users

in its efficacy, and it can be easily posted in an

envelope if Mum lives a distance away.

For painful hands, feet or legs this small

therapeutic device is used when sitting, most

effective when used in several short spells a

day - no need for long tough workouts. Jenny

says, “Many delighted people report that it

helps relieve arthritic pain and other problems

such as cramp and ankle swelling. We know

that regular use while sitting watching TV

can begin the progress of stronger legs, better

balance, comfortable walking and freedom

from discomfort. It’s an easy way to manage

a range of health conditions – it offers

relief. Any of us can use the Aircycle almost

anywhere.

Jenny showed me some of the many

grateful letters she’d received. Often Aircycle

users have spent heavily on medications

and therapy before discovering this simple

effective, drug-free device. Jenny says, “News

is fast spreading by word of mouth, but we

still have a way to go.”

Well, I say, time others knew about it. Well

done Jenny! Mum – you’re going to like this!

Care, compassion and skill

define Nurse Maude

Nurse Maude has been caring for the people of Canterbury since 1896.

Much of this nursing care

and support has been in the

community so people can stay

in their own homes and retain

as much independence as possible.

Every year millions of kilometres are

clocked up as nurses and home support

workers cross the Canterbury region

providing personal, domestic, nursing and

specialist palliative care.

“All the nursing and homecare services

we provide, whether it be in the community

or in the Nurse Maude Hospital or Nurse

Maude Hospice are founded on the core

principles of partnership, respect and

nursing excellence,” says Jim Magee, chief

executive of Nurse Maude.

“Our unique strength lies in the ability

of our people to blend that with the values

which motivated Sybilla Maude in 1896;

that the needs of the patients and clients are

met with quality nursing care and support

provided by skilled and compassionate staff.”

“The broad spectrum of care provided by

Nurse Maude encompasses the two most

vulnerable groups in our society, the very

young and the elderly.”

Nurse Maude has always been a

collaborative organisation, providing care

in partnership with general practitioners,

practice nurses, district health boards, ACC

and the Ministry of Health among others.

“It is through improved communication

and the sharing of information that these

relationships continue to strengthen for

the benefit of our patients and clients,” says

Magee.

From the frontline staff who exhibit

that blend of expertise, efficiency and

compassion which makes Nurse Maude so

special through to those who support them

in administrative roles and Nurse Maude’s

volunteers who give so generously of their

time and talent, the organisation that is

Nurse Maude attracts enormous respect in

the community.

While the technology, processes and

systems used to provide that care today

would no doubt astonish Sibylla Maude,

there is little doubt that 120 years on that

the organisation that bears her name and

continues her legacy of care would meet

with her wholehearted approval.

they are ideal for long term use from babies

popular for healthy skin care. The Skin Milk

Udder Cream is the lightest of creams that can

easily penetrate the skin with its beneficial

ingredients especially the milk protein which

has been shown to increase skin elasticity

and health. It is non-greasy and contains no

mineral oil or other nasties.

EnviroMaster

Are you struggling with the heat

of Summer or wanting to get

organised for Winter? With the

ever changing weather patterns,

heat pumps have the flexibility of being able

to heat and cool which is an advantage no

other appliance can offer. This represents

great value for your investment as you can

use it all year round. The team at Enviro

Master Ltd can help keep you cool this

Summer either at home or work. Enviro

Master supplies, installs and services all

the leading brands including Panasonic,

Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daikin. This means

our team can show you which system and

brand will best suit your needs.

We currently have savings up to $600

off the recommended retail price on

selected models.

Would you like to maximise the number

of days you can use your swimming pool?

Heating your pool can do this and one of

the most cost effective ways is with a water

heat pump. Enviro Master Ltd can supply,

install and service you swimming pool heat

pump providing you with a comfortable,

extended swimming season.

Servicing your heat pump is extremely

important to ensure that it is working

as effectively and efficiently as possible

resulting in a healthy, hygienic heat pump,

lower power bills and greater comfort. But

beware, not all cleaning companies are

equal. We are constantly hearing of people

being charged huge amounts for servicing

and all they are getting is a heat pump

clean. We at Enviro Master, are qualified

engineers and therefore are able to fully

test and diagnose any problems you may

or may not be aware of with your heat

pump. Also, as we are associated with all

major brands, we are able to repair these

under warranty if they are still within the

warranty period.

It is important to remember, when

selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s

warranty does not cover the installation

and consumers could be responsible for

any repair or damage caused to the system

due to poor installation. Enviro Master’s

five-star installation guarantee ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration

so customers have an understanding on

how it will best meet their needs.

Waltham, Christchurch.

An extensive range

To ensure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can

calculate the required air exchange for

your building requirement. Smooth-

Air offers a wide range of ventilation equipment,

from air vents to ducting for fans, for both

the commercial and domestic markets. They

have an extensive range of fans and ventilation

components in-store but they can also provide

innovative solutions tailored to differing

requirements.

VENTILATIoN

This includes both the exchange of air to the

outside as well as circulation of air within the

building. It is one of the most important factors

for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality

in buildings.

Filtered air supply for summer and filtered

- warmed air in winter creates a healthy

environment in which to live and work. In case

of poor or insufficient air intake from outside,

the oxygen content decreases, humidity and

dustiness levels increase. If exhaust ventilation

is not provided or it is not effective, polluted air,

smells, humidity and harmful substances are

not removed.

Low oxygen with high carbon dioxide causes

stuffiness in the room and occupants can feel

drowsy. Invisible harmful substances like a high

content of dust and tobacco smoke are harmful

and can cause various diseases. Even bad smells

can cause discomfort or irritate the nervous

system. In summer, it’s easy to open windows for

cross ventilation, however as winter approaches,

we start to shut up out houses to trap in the heat

and as a result, air quality can decline.

It is therefore very important to ensure good

air quality indoors through adequate ventilation.

HOME OR OFFICE

TOO HOT OR

TOO COLD?

Allow us to help you achieve year-round comfort

with a professionally installed heat pump.

We have a wealth of knowledge and experience

and we guide our clients through the selection

process - we don’t believe in a “hard sell”, we will

only recommend a heat pump that will suit your

heating/ventilation needs and we will offer this

at a very competitive price.

What a view to wake up to

18 Glendevere Terrace, Redcliffs

Auction: May 12, 2016

4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 2 living rooms | 1 dining room | 3-car garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing #: FM4869

Designed to maximise the glorious

views, you will be captivated as

you gaze over the estuary and

Southshore to take in the sweep

of Pegasus Bay to the Kaikouras beyond.

This is not for the casual observer as the

home conceals its appealing and spacious

interior from the street, and it’s only once

you have soaked up the stunning views will

you be able to enjoy the expansive family

living, including a bright, modern kitchen

and defined dining area, then explore further

into the home.

To suit families who want extra space,

there is a large formal lounge/media room

on the first floor, which would also suit those

who wished to have an office to work from

home as it features easy separate access from

the street while on the lower level the home

offers a master bedroom complete with en

suite, three further good-sized bedrooms

and main bathroom. There is also the benefit

of a shower room on the ground floor, which

is ideal when you get back from a quick surf

or trip to Sumner beach that is just a short

drive away.

For your outdoor entertaining, the west

-facing timber deck is perfect for summer

BBQs, or relaxing with a glass of wine at

the end of the day. The internal access,

triple garage for all the boy’s toys completes

the package.

Having just completed a major renovation

to a very high standard, the home will meet

the demands of the most discerning buyers

and, while I am surprised the decision has

been made to sell such a wonderful home, I

have been given clear instructions to sell the

property on auction day, unless sold prior.

Open Home dates: Wednesdays and

Sundays, 2pm to 2.40pm. See you at

the Open Days. For more information

or to arrange a private viewing, contact
