Decision over

BP expansion

next week

Catwalk ready

• By Andrew King

ST ALBANS residents trying to

stop the expansion of a petrol

station will know next Thursday

whether they have been

successful.

The group was expecting

to find out on Friday if the

resource consent BP Oil had

applied for had been approved

after the hearing was held last

month.

But there was a delay to the

official closure of the hearing,

after commissioner David

Mountfort said he needed

additional information about

the application. This meant the

decision is now not expected

until next Thursday.

BP has bought two sections

next to the service station on

the corner of Edgeware Rd and

Cranford St, and plans to build a

bigger forecourt and shop there.

If the consent is granted it will

add four pumps with 12 more

car parks.

Resident Rob Hull said while

he was disappointed, residents

had not been notified of the delay,

it was not surprising. He said

residents had been “kept in the

dark” about most of the process.

“The communication has been

shocking,” he said.

A city council spokeswoman

said the city council is not

obliged to inform the submitters

when the commissioner has

closed the hearing.

As the consent was only

limited notification, only two

residents were able to speak

at the hearing, however, they

submitted a petition with 37

signatures on it, opposing the

expansion.

Mr Mountfort asked the

city council to present a more

specific condition about the

spacing of trees along the

northern internal boundary.

Mr Hull said residents were

concerned on the weekend when

they saw construction fencing

going up around property BP

has bought to expand.

Objector and resident Kazu

Kano said he just wanted the

outcome to be known in a

timely fashion.

“Good news or bad news, I

Bank closure would be ‘huge loss’

• By Andrew King

RESIDENTS ARE fighting

the potential closure of the

Bishopdale Westpac branch by

starting a petition.

The Bishopdale and Fendalton

Westpac branches are two of 19

around the country that could

be closed due to the rise in online

transactions.

But Bishopdale residents are

fighting the closure because they

say it needed in the area, especially

among older people.

According to a statement

released by Westpac the closure

is because 85 per cent of service

transactions are not done at

banks.

Bishopdale Centre

Association secretary Jenny

Haig said the suburb has been

labelled as a “rejuvenation

area” by the city council so not

having basic amenities seems

strange.

“People are not happy and

the customers are quite

passionate about having a

branch here. They are killing it,”

she said.

“The access is good, there is

great parking and a lot of businesses

bank here.”

Bishopdale Community Trust

UNHAPPY: Residents around Bishopdale band together to try stop the closure of their local

branch. The Bishopdale and Fendalton Westpac branches are two of 19 around the country

that could be closed due to the rise in online transactions. PHOTO: ANNABELLE DICK

development worker Tania

Smith said it will not only

affect elderly people in Bishopdale

but businesses who use the

branch to doing their banking

as well.

Meanwhile, Hamilton Ave

Residents Association chairman

Doug Archbold said losing

Westpac bank was another blow

to the Fendalton community, after

the Kiwibank and PostShop

closed in December and moved

to the Fendalton Library and

Service Centre.

“There is surprise and concern

from the elderly, who are not

that technologically-savvy,” he

said.

Mr Archbold believes they

would not just start using the

internet because their bank

moved, they would have to go

further to find another branch

that could accommodate their

needs.

Westpac media adviser Hilary

Marett said they would not be

making any comment while the

consultation process is under

way.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Is there

still a need for bank

buildings or can everything

be done online meaning

less need for a branch?

In Brief

SPA CLOSED

Jellie Park Recreation and Sport

Centre’s spa will remain closed

for the next one to two weeks

after receiving a positive test

result for Legionella bacterium

from the Canterbury District

Health Board. As an additional

precaution, spa pools at the

Pioneer and Graham Condon

Recreation and Sport Centres will

be super-chlorinated and tested.

REDUCED SPEED

Papanui Rd has a reduced speed

limit to 30km/h between Innes Rd

and Bealey Ave until September

30. The reduction is due to trenchwork

being carried out. The lanes

have also been shifted, but both

remain open, to accommodate the

work. Delays can be expected.

Anti-fluoridation argument

doesn’t ‘hold much water’

Nick King

responds to

last week’s

opinion piece

by John

Verd about

the dangers

of water

fluoridation

in Christchurch

With respect John, I think

your passion for the well-being

of others is admirable but, in this

case, misguided.

To suffer a ‘toxic dose’ of

fluoride, at the current safe and

recommended level you’d have to

guzzle 25 gallons of water. You’d

die from hyperhydration first.

Sola dosis facit venenum – the

dose makes the poison.

You quote Hirzy and Connett

as if that adds weight to the antifluoride

argument.

They are not respected in their

field, nor do they speak for the

(United States) Environmental

Protection Agency. And they’re

at odds with their peers and

mountains of research.

I suspect these ‘studies’ are the

well-known ‘Chinese studies’,

popular among conspiracy theorists

and widely discredited. Fifty

poor studies versus thousands

of more robust studies does not

make a solid case.

The Chinese studies fail to

acknowledge the higher than recommended

levels of fluoride and

other chemicals (also other factors

that may contribute to lower

IQ), including arsenic and iodine

– iodine being a good example

of “beneficial in small doses,

dangerous in higher doses”.

The dose makes the poison.

Even if it is a by-product of an

industrial process, so what? Lots

of things are. We call it recycling.

It’s safe at the levels required to

be beneficial to teeth.

Sure, it might be classed as

a hazardous product which, of

course, it will be if you’re counting

it by the truck load.

Hydrochloric acid is highly

corrosive, but is also produced

naturally by your own body.

There’s arsenic in rice.

The dose makes the poison.

I’m all for questioning and

challenging the status-quo –

things go stale if we don’t.

But scaring people with

sciencey-sounding rhetoric isn’t

very helpful, even if your intentions

are good.

I too have my own reservations

about this situation because of

Christchurch’s reputation for

amazing water, and I have an

emotional attachment to that.

But the points you covered just

don’t hold much water (pun

intended) and are potentially

unnecessarily scary for people.

Readers respond to last

week’s opinion piece

by John Verd about

fluoridated water

Pam Webber, Middleton

I agree with you. (It’s)

abhorrent that they intend

ruining our beautiful

Christchurch water. Keep up the

good work.

Ian Orchard, Papanui

I won’t be losing sleep over

the possibility of fluoridated

water until I get some more

details which John Verd

omitted. The somewhat

breathless revelation that

hydrofluorosilicic acid (more

properly Hexafluorosilicic acid)

is a by-product of the fertiliser

industry isn’t particularly

relevant. Like sausages, lots

of ingredients in food come

from pathways that we prefer

not to know about, without

being in any way hazardous.

On the other hand, plenty of

ingredients can be dangerous

in the wrong concentrations.

Sodium chloride and

dihydrogen oxide are two classic

examples. Sodium bicarbonate,

frequently recommended for

tough cleaning jobs, is also an

essential ingredient in cakes.

John makes no mention of the

concentration of fluoride ions

in treated water. The WTO

recommends 1mg/l or one

part per million, hardly a toxic

NOR’WEST NEWS

dose for a mineral that doesn’t

accumulate in the body. He also

omits to mention the ‘elevated’

levels of fluorine required to

cause reduced IQ, or whether

association is actual causation,

or if any of the 50 studies had

survived peer review? It’s much

easier to scaremonger if you

leave out any details that might

counter your beliefs.

A reader responds to

a recent article about

construction of the new

Northern Corridor project

Peter Reid – Bishopdale

Good about the pedestrian

and cycleway. I presume it will

take the same form as the one

alongside QE II. Seems odd to

have a third lane north over the

Waimakariri, but not south. It

will ease congestion a bit and,

for a while, for rush hour motorists

coming into the city until

numbers increase and congestion

gets back to present levels. Not

that I’m against the project. I left

Christchurch in 1969, a few years

after the original motorway was

done. When I returned in 1986, I

was very disappointed to find an

extension hadn’t been done to the

east of Belfast into the city. Have

they ditched that silly extra exit

off QE II in the vicinity of Hills

Rd through a park and across to

Innes Rd, or somewhere there,

that was proposed a couple of

years ago?

Proposed resident parking

scheme moves up a gear

• By Andrew King

RESIDENTS ARE closer to

getting permits that will allow

them to park on their own street

overriding any time restrictions.

The Fendalton-Waimairi

Community Board and city

councillor Jamie Gough want to

introduce permits so residents

can park in their street exempt

from restricted time constraints.

The board recommended city

council staff arrange a briefing

where resident permits can be

explored and potential solutions

found.

The recommendation was

adopted by the city council at a

recent meeting.

“Parking restrictions are

a necessary evil to promote

vehicle turnover in busy areas.

But the point of them is not to

punish the residents that need to

park in front of their own house

for longer than the restricted

time period,” Cr Gough said.

“I think there’s a better way,

and it’s pretty straight-forward,”

he said.

The permit would over rule

any parking restrictions on the

street outside their property.

Russley resident Ken Legat

said the permit was a fantastic

idea that will start to give

residents the freedom to park

outside their properties.

“Parking is a big problem,

especially for us with the

inclusion of the Airport Business

Park and its employees needing

a space to park near their work,”

he said.

The permits would be similar

to the contractor parking

permits Cr Gough campaigned

for on behalf of a Holmwood Rd

resident.

They allow contractors to

park exempt from restrictions

in suburban streets. That idea is

now being trialled for the next

10 months.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Does the

city council need to bring

in parking permits to allow

residents to park outside

their properties without the

risk of parking fines? Share

SCIRT programme on the home straight

SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and retaining walls is

almost complete and will finish in December.

Most of our repairs involve fixing the city’s underground pipe networks with only small

amount of our work focused on roads.

Our roading work largely involves fixing where we have dug down to repair and replace

the earthquake damaged pipes beneath. The result may look a little patchy but we repair

roads to a reliable and serviceable standard.

The City Council and NZ Transport Agency will continue completing ongoing repairs to the

city's earthquake-damaged roads after SCIRT.

Progress in your neighbourhood

• Fixing the Northern Relief, one of Christchurch’s biggest wastewater pipes running

through Fendalton, Merivale and St Albans is more than halfway through and will be

completed at the end of the year.

• Essential wastewater repairs in Aikmans Road in Merivale have begun and will be

completed at the end of the year.

• Ongoing repairs to the wastewater networks in Fendalton, Strowan, Papanui and

Bryndwr are due to finish next month.

• Your support is helping us to get the job done, thank you from the SCIRT team.

Pupils release eels to mark

creek transformation

IT WAS a slippery winter

morning in Christchurch – but

not in the way you’d expect.

Pupils from Tuahiwi School

released eels and planted trees to

celebrate the successful realignment

of the Kā Pūtahi Creek.

Rich with native life, the creek

area in Belfast has been the beneficiary

of the upcoming creation

of the Northern Corridor

roading system.

The realignment has been

carried out by the city council to

allow the corridor, which begins

construction in October, to pass

over the Kā Pūtahi without the

need to obstruct the creek with

the creation of special culverts.

City council head of transport

Chris Gregory said big transport

developments like this often led

to unexpected benefits on the

side.

“In this case, the Northern

Corridor project has given the

city council the perfect opportunity

to create two hectares of

native forest and riparian planting,”

he said.

“Importantly, the realignment

of the stream means that both

people and wildlife will be able

to move up and down the stream

corridor freely, without any barriers

created by the motorway

NEW DIRECTION: A Belfast creek has benefited from the

Northern Corridor roading project. ​

and culverts.”

Planning for the realignment

began in 2013 and was approved

by the city council in August

2015.

Construction began in

January 2016, with contractors

Grounds & Services Ltd able

to complete the work ahead of

schedule.

In securing a viable spring-fed

river ecosystem and a sourceto-sea

experience through the

continuation of the urban reserve

network and walkway, the

project has been an important

step in achieving the Styx Vision

2000-2040.

PROGRESS: Harcourts Holmwood owners Tony Jenkins and

Lynne MacDonald outside the business’s old premises which

will make way for a new building. ​

New headquarters for

Harcourts Holmwood

HARCOURTS Holmwood is

preparing for a new era with the

demolition of its quake-damaged

head office.

More than five years on from

the earthquakes, the damaged

building at 397 Ilam Rd will

make way for a new state-of-the

art premises.

Owners Tony Jenkins and

Lynne MacDonald said it was

incredibly satisfying to see work

underway on the site after several

years of evaluation and planning.

The new building will be the

flagship premises for Harcourts

Holmwood, which operates seven

offices throughout Christchurch,

as well as in Invercargill

and Gore.

It’s been designed to cater for

all aspects of the business’s real

estate service, including a new

on-site auction room and adjoining

cafe.

The business will operate

out of 142 Sherborne Street, St

Albans, during construction.

Snowboarding and modelling

Anneke Stewart is an artist who has spent years

travelling and adventure-seeking. Reporter

Annabelle Dick spoke to her about what it was

like growing up on a deer farm, modelling for one

of New Zealand’s biggest designers and how she

impressed some of Europe’s most well-known

graffiti artists

You are an artist by trade, can

you tell me about your art and

your career?

I exhibit at least once or twice

a year, I’m always producing

artwork. I produce in about

10 different mediums quite

prolifically. The style is very much

cohesive throughout my work.

I’m into reclaimed objects

and keeping the integrity of a

material. My approach to what

I do is consciously create and

honour where we come from and

where our materials come from.

I believe we’re here to look after

this beautiful planet. I’m a Reiki

master which is like an energy

healer so I’m very sensitive to

energy and energy patterns.

I love what I do. Art is not

something I do, it’s who I am and

there’s no separation between the

two. It’s like breathing I have to

do it in order to feel normal.

What are you working on at

the moment?

I’m currently working on

more products and print media

on paper so I can make my

work more accessible. I’ve

just completed the largest

commission of my career so

far for the Deloitte building in

the city centre. It’s a lenticular

lightbox which is an animated

3D-type medium so the images

change when you walk past.

I’m trying to keep my fine art

and commercial art separate. On

a weekly basis I do art classes

where I teach a handful of

students – hopefully, by next year

I can have more classes. I want

to start adult classes next month

too. I’m also doing a piece for the

BMX park over in New Brighton

in spring.

Tell me about you family.

My father was a deer farmer

and my mother has always

worked in fashion. When I was in

school she sold Pieter’s Modelling

Agency which is now Portfolio

CREATIVE: Anneke Stewart with one of her creations.

Model Agency. Then a few years She’s very down to earth, a hard

loves to cook and hates shopping.

I’ve always grown up with a That sounds like you would’ve

highly driven and motivated had an interesting upbringing,

mum doing amazing events. what was life like growing up?

I had an amazing life growing

up on a farm. We spent summers

in the Sounds at our family bach

and in the winter I was always up

at Mt Olympus.

Spending time on the snow was

a big part of my life. I learnt to

ski there at three-years-old and

snowboard at 16.

I actually did my minor

at art school in snowboard

photography just so I could get

up the mountain every week

and justify it. I’ve been really

involved in the early days of the

snowboard industry in New

Zealand. It makes me who I am

and it makes me tick.

Were you ever keen to get into

fashion after growing up with a

mother who’s highly prominent

in the industry?

Fashion isn’t something I’ve

felt a huge desire to get into, I

chose to pursue art which isn’t

highly lucrative but I’m working

on it. I used to model when I was

15 through to about 20 – but it

wasn’t serious at all.

I was just learning to

snowboard when I got the biggest

bruise on my hip. Soon after

that happened I had to fly up to

Auckland for my first advertising

campaign for a New Zealand

designer and it was with Helen

Cherry.

give way to creating art

It was a big deal and I turned

up all bruised expecting them to

say: ‘Who is this chick from the

boonies? What’s she doing?’

Christine Webster shot the

campaign and I idolised her as

a photographer and here was

me this little rookie snowboard

model chick. I was mortified. That

exemplifies my non-attachment

to the fashion industry.

I did draw on my photography

skills though and I was the official

photographer for New Zealand

Fashion Week when I moved back

to the country.

What was school like?

I went to Hororata Primary

then Selwyn House before

going to boarding school at St

Margaret’s College.

After high school I went to

Christchurch Polytechnic where I

did a degree in craft design.

I actually failed university

entrance for art so I couldn’t get

into art school on my marks.

So I took the year off and

snowboarded every day and

painted at night and filled up

work books so I could get myself

in. I then did my post graduate

at Elam School of Fine Arts

majoring in sculpture.

What did you do after

studying?

I had been institutionalised my

ENTHUSIASTIC: Anneke Stewart on the slopes with her

four-year-old daughter Phoenix.

whole life so I decided to move

overseas where I spent 10 years.

What was it like living

overseas?

I tried to get art-related jobs

but they wouldn’t recognise my

degree there. While I was there I

got very good at graffiti.

My partner of the time was

an aerosol artist so I went out to

do public walls with him quite

often. I was part of a paint jam in

Brighton with about 150 graffiti

artists from all around Europe

and I was one of three girls. They

were watching me paint and

asked me how long I’ve been

doing it . . . it was probably about

my fifth ever piece and they were

really impressed.

After living in the UK I moved

to Morzine, France and I got a job

as a photographer. The first gig

was at the Arctic Circle up the top

of Sweden to an event called The

Battle which is legendary in the

snowboarding world. I ended up

meeting a pro rider from Sweden

and we ended up dating for four

years.

SUNSET: Mandala light box created from an original photo

taken near Shag Rock after the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Why did you make the move

back to New Zealand?

After the Sweden saga I

came home. I became unwell

and developed really bad

endometriosis.

I was close to being booked in

to get surgery but I wanted time

to get my body strong so I moved

to Wanaka. Being a Reiki master

I was aware that what was going

on could be fixed holistically. I

worked with a natural healer and

nutritionist for a year and I got

rid of it completely without any

surgery.

You got engaged earlier this

year, how did you meet you

partner?

When I moved to Wanaka I

met my partner Anthony who’s a

builder. We lived in Wanaka for a

couple of years before moving to

Leeston, then to the high country

and now we’re in Sumner. We

have two kids together – Phoenix

who’s four and Knox who is twoand-a-half.

After the endometriosis I was

told I wouldn’t be able to conceive

children easily so my children are

miracles. He’s from the Taranaki

so he’s a North Island boy but

I managed to move him down

here because I’m a hardcore

Cantabrian.

Big opportunity for models

UP-AND-COMING: Papanui’s

Lucy Wyma, 20.

• By Annabelle Dick

TWO NORTH-WEST residents

will strut their stuff at New

Zealand’s most popular fashion

showcase in Auckland this

week.

Rebecca Dore, of Burnside,

and Lucy Wyma, of Papanui,

will take to the catwalk at New

Zealand Fashion Week.

Portfolio Model Agency

director Mel Radford Brown

said the girls are some of the top

within the agency and reflects

the talent Christchurch has to

offer.

“This speak volumes of

Portfolio Models and the calibre

of our models,” Mrs Radford

Brown said.

Miss Dore, 21, is Portfolio

Model Agency’s booker as well

as a model for the organisation.

This is her fourth time walking

at fashion week and she said

she’s thrilled to be a part of one

of the more extravagant shows

of the week.

“I did the wedding show last

year and it was beautiful. It’s

the best show of the week and

it’s exciting to be a bride,” Miss

Dore said.

She has also walked in Australia’s

premier event Mercedes-

Benz Fashion Week in Sydney.

Lucy Wyma, 20, also walked

in the latest Mercedes-Benz

Fashion Week and will be at

New Zealand Fashion Week.

The young up-and-comer

was recently signed to modelling

agency IMG International

which has boasted the likes

of Gisele Bundchen, Miranda

Kerr and Kate Moss.

Georgia Greig, 19, of Ilam,

will accompany the girls in what

will be her first appearance at

New Zealand Fashion Week.

BREAK OUT:

Newcomer

Georgia Greig,

19, lives in Ilam.

Miss Greig only just stepped

onto the modelling scene a year

ago and is excited to show at the

event seeing as she didn’t even

attend the casting for the event.

“It’s pretty overwhelming to

be chosen because being a student

it wasn’t financially viable

to attend casting so I just hung

back and let them know I was

available to be booked directly,”

she said.

The models will walk in the

wedding show tomorrow and

Saturday.

21, of Burnside.

pointing them in the right

direction,” she said.

“We can make

appointments and sit down

with them at a later time to

talk in more detail.”

Villa takes hockey final

ST MARGARET’S College

and Burnside High School

both came agonisingly close

to taking the biggest prizes in

Christchurch secondary school

hockey.

The top secondary school

hockey teams were found on

Friday night at Marist Park.

After a hard fought season

which began at the start of

May it was down to just two in

the finals of the boys and girls

school’s premier league hockey

competition.

St Margaret’s met Villa Maria

College in the girls final. A tight,

low scoring encounter saw Villa

take the spoils 1-0.

Villa and St Margaret’s

finished the round-robin

as the top two teams in the

competition. St Margaret’s

defeated Rangi Ruru 4-1 in last

week’s semi-final while Villa

topped Christchurch Girls’ High

School 3-2.

The boys final was played

between Christ’s College and

Burnside High School.

Christ’s proved to strong winning

the game 3-1.

It was a valiant effort by Burnside

just to make the final. They

snuck into the play-offs as the

fourth qualifier and then upset

Christchurch Boys’ High School

Russell was the joint winner of

include the likes of Super Rugby

players Damian McKenzie and

The winner of the award is

decided by opposition coaches

throughout the season. After

each game they submit who they

on the opposition side.

Russell is in his fourth season

with the first XV. He made his

Burnside debut in 2013 as a year

10. He was part of the Burnside

team that conceded 100 points

against Christchurch BHS that

season.

Now in his second season as

the team’s captain, Russell has

played a large part in Burnside’s

rise in the UC Championship.

He scored nine tries last year

and has gone one better this year

with 10.

Teen Tall Ferns

YEAR 12 Rangi Ruru Girls’

School student Esra McGoldrick

will represent the New Zealand

under-19 basketball team.

McGoldrick and Charlotte

Whittaker, of Rangiora High

School, are Canterbury’s two

representatives in the squad.

The Junior Tall Ferns will play

China in two games at Cowles

Stadium next month.

McGoldrick, 16, represented

Canterbury in a third place

finish at last month’s under-19

provincial championships. She

was named in the New Zealand

team at the conclusion of the

tournament.

McGoldrick should have

represented New Zealand at under-19

level last year. However,

she missed out on the Junior Tall

Ferns tour to China after tearing

her ACL (anterior cruciate

ligament) during the national

under-17 provincial final 12

months ago.

“That was terrible. My surgery

was in October and I missed out

on a lot of stuff, including the

tour to China.”

“It’s going to be my first time

representing New Zealand in

front of a home crowd. There’s

going to be a lot of supporters –

it should be great.”

She has previously represented

New Zealand at under-16 and

17 level.

McGoldrick will play for

Rangi Ruru tonight when they

host St Andrew’s College in the

semi-final of the Whelan Trophy

competition.

Rangi Ruru qualified for the

play-offs after finishing at the

top of their pool, with 12 wins

and two losses this season.

McGoldrick puts a lot of her

recent development down to the

coaching and support available

at the school. She previously attended

Rangiora New Life School

before making the switch.

She will also represent the

Halswell premier women’s team

on Saturday. They’re led by

Canterbury Wildcats coach Lori

McDaniel, and are currently

third in the Canterbury premier

competition.

BALLERS:

Esra

McGoldrick

(right) and

Charlotte

Whittaker

will represent

New Zealand

against China.

McGoldrick plays in the

centre and power-forward

positions.

She’s looking forward to

testing herself against the best

under-19 players from China.

“They definitely have height.

They have a girl that’s 6”7

(2.04m). They’re also great

shooters and can play quick with

the ball. It’s going to be pretty

intense.”

The two games against China

will act as preparation ahead

of the team’s under-19 Oceania

World Championship qualifying

tournament at the end of the

year.

New Zealand play China on

September 7 and 8 at Cowles

Stadium.

eStar working to

attract best IT talent

Nurturing new talent and better

engaging employees will reach new

heights at eStar, as the world class

e-commerce platform and leading

Christchurch tech company strives to

attract the brightest IT professionals.

eStar’s outreach activities look

four to five years ahead, says Chief

Operations Officer Kevin Rowland.

eStar ‘lead team’ staff attend careers

events, visit secondary schools and

recently supported Shadowtech,

with two female employees

mentoring two secondary school girls for a day.

The company is recruiting and will be looking

for new talent at Ara Institute of Canterbury’s

Industry Expo on 25 August, having previously

employed Ara graduates (when Ara was CPIT).

Finding the right skills mix for retail IT is

challenging, Rowland says. With around 70

staff, eStar designs and develops the software

that powers the websites and the online retail

systems of retailers including Briscoes and

Country Road.

Technical skills are of course essential, but ‘soft

skills’ such as communication and interaction

can really set candidates apart. “When we

interview I am always looking for personality. We

do a technical test/developer half day immersion

and everybody freaks over the fact that it’s a tech

test, but if you can do what you say on your CV

then it’s not an issue. You’re in a live ‘dev’ room,

with the people you are going to be working

with. I not only encourage people to talk to each

other but it has to happen because that helps me

see what they’re like.

“Most people who work in IT are introverts.

It’s what makes us good programmers; it’s part

of our personality.

“It’s OK if candidates are a bit meek, but I

have to see some kind of spark. I can throw a

stone into Christchurch and find graduates

who can do IT. They have got to have that bit of

enthusiasm.”

To find out more about working for eStar

and other leading Christchurch companies

visit the Ara Industry Expo and Open Day

on 25 August, 2 – 5pm, City Campus and

Woolston Campus, Christchurch.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

NOR’WEST NEWS

Reclaim your

identity

When it comes to dentures, Christchurch people

have access to world-leading techniques and oral

aesthetics right on their doorstep.

At his Montreal street studio Lovebite,

internationally renowned dental

technician Richard Greenlees creates

beautiful bespoke dentures with small

nuances in the fabrication, colour and

shape, and even slight imperfections to

create a uniquely individual smile.

There is no need for dentures to look

false. Richard takes a great deal of

satisfaction in making bespoke dentures

that look 100 per cent real and natural,

personally guiding his patients through

the transformation process to craft a

smile that reflects their individuality and

personality, and recreates their natural

pre-denture smile.

Not only do Lovebite teeth look

real, the whole structure and shape of

the patient’s face is transformed with

Richard’s top-of-the-line dentures,

something he calls his signature ‘denture

lift’.

“With appropriate facial support, the

facial tissues are brought back into the

correct position, the lips are reformed,

and beauty is restored,” he says.

it is the interior architecture of a

Lovebite denture that helps to create a

more youthful appearance by recovering

the face and skeletal shape that can be

lost after years of wearing dentures.

As the smile is transformed, so are the

patient’s confidence, and the way they

feel about themselves.

Richard’s vast experience includes

15 years of running his own clinic in

the prestigious harley st, London,

where he treated people from all walks

of life, from barrow boys to the rich

and famous, politicians, actors and

musicians.

his techniques are recognised as

world-leading among his international

peers, and he is regularly asked to

lecture and run courses worldwide.

Miles Cone (DMD, Ms, FACP, CDt),

a prosthodontist from Oregon, UsA,

said in November 2015: “Richard

Greenlees’ craftsmanship is as stunning

as it is unique. There is liberation in

the calculated imperfection, indeed an

asperity that reflects a purely human

element.”

in addition to dentures, Richard also

carries out crown and bridge, veneer

and implant work, in conjunction

with like-minded dental surgeons who

complement his creative and aesthetic

work.

“teeth are as different as fingerprints

and vary greatly depending on a person’s

age, sex and race. Dentures from

Lovebite reflect this, and are as unique

and individual as the people they are

made for,” says Richard.

There is nothing more satisfying for

Richard than to see his patients leave

the Lovebite studio with their selfconfidence

and identity restored, as well

as their smile.

Confidence and beauty is restored with a new

denture by Lovebite.

As the smile is transformed, so are the

patient’s confidence, and the way they

feel about themselves.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Proven

formula

combats

colds & flu

Research has shown certain herbs and natural

ingredients can dramatically reduce the chances

of succumbing to colds and flu.

One example of a proven formula is Go

Healthy ‘Go Vir-Defence’. Due to the high

potency extracts it contains, one or two capsules

daily are usually sufficient to keep the immune

system at optimum efficiency; however, at the

onset of headaches, sore throat, body aches

etc. the dose should be increased to one or two

capsules up to three times daily.

Go Vir-Defence contains: Olive Leaf Extract

- a popular ingredient used in the treatment of

immune attacks for its strong anti-microbial

properties.

Garlic Extract - effective in combatting

bacteria, viruses and fungi and supporting the

immune system. Andrographis Extract - has

powerful immune-enhancing properties.

Echinacea Extract - a natural antibiotic and

infection fighter.

Pau D’ Arco Extract - helps enhance the

immune system.

Citrus Bioflavonoids - work with Vitamin

C and support the immune system as well

as strengthening capillaries and reducing

inflammation.

Vitamin C - a powerful antioxidant that helps

counteract bacteria and viral infections.

Elderberry Extract - provides immune support.

Zinc - an essential mineral for the immune

system and general health.

Essential

nutrients for

health & vitality

After noticing patients were

experiencing gut, bowel and

digestive issues that often led to

more serious chronic health

conditions, two Australian

Naturopaths conducted

extensive research. This

revealed that although

the patients were generally

eating good food, they were not

obtaining all the nutrients required

for good health, with one of the

main problems being the digestive

system.

Also, with the soils crops are

grown in being depleted of many

trace elements and other essential

nutrients, the crops are also

depleted.

If we do not obtain all the

required nutrients, our body will

compensate to some degree, but

a lack of too many nutrients will

eventually lead to health issues.

Knowing this, the naturopaths

developed Vital Greens, a nutrientdense

powdered formula that

provides superior absorption and

comprehensive nutrition.

Vital Greens contains a balanced

blend of nutritionally rich

Father’s Day -

Keep Dad on

his toes

Every three hours a New Zealand man dies from a

preventable disease. Yet most “blokes” wait until

something goes wrong before seeking help!

Men are not as diligent at taking

care of themselves as women,

according to health practitioners

around the world.

So men, what about some

preventative maintenance for

your body, as you would give your

car? And women, let’s try harder

to encourage our men to take care

of themselves. Small lifestyle

changes can prevent or delay the

onset of many health problems.

When diabetes, arthritis or

stiff, aching joints are a problem,

and more time is spent sitting,

it’s important to have an easy and

enjoyable way to remain active.

Participating in sports or not,

watching TV, reading the paper,

or talking on the phone, an

Aircycle circulation booster can

keep you moving while you sit..

Keeping Dad on his toes with

Davis Cup event returns to Christchurch

The New Zealand Davis

Cup team are heading back to

Christchurch to take on Pakistan in

the Asia-Oceania Group 1 second

round playoff. The Tie is being

held from Friday 16 September to

Sunday 18 September, indoors at

Z Energy Wilding Park.

Kiwi Olympians Michael Venus

and Marcus Daniell ranked 41

and 58 respective in the world

for doubles have been named

alongside Finn Tearney ranked

381, Rubin Statham at 444 in

singles. If Statham takes the court

he will beat Onny Parun’s New

Zealand Davis Cup record of the

most ties played for his country of

25 ties.

It is likely Pakistan will select

their doubles expert Aisam

Qureshi who is 36-years-old and

ranked 48th in doubles. Aqeel

Khan is another likely veteran

who should be selected.

New Zealand lead Pakistan

3-1 in head-to-head clashes. The

last time the two sides clashed it

was a 4-1 win for New Zealand

in Myanmar in 2013 which was

abandoned.

Christchurch has been the home

of Davis Cup ties since 2014, with

a win against Chinese Taipei in

2014 and a close 3-2 loss to India

in the 2015 semi-finals. Tennis

Canterbury is extremely excited

to host yet another Davis Cup tie

for the third consecutive year. This

is a return to the glory days that

has seen Tennis Canterbury host

numerous Davis Cup ties against

some of the superpower of world

tennis.

Z Energy Wilding Park is one

of the oldest sport venues still in

operation in all of Canterbury.

It has played host to Davis

Cup matches as far back as the

1910’s and 20’s. Much like many

of Christchurch’s other most

important sporting facilities

Wilding Park was severely

impacted by the Christchurch

Earthquake impacted in both

September 2009 and February

2010.

The rebuilding process has

been a long one. Mixed emotions

were felt at the demolition of the

iconic Memorial Stands, host to

numerous Davis Cup Tie and other

International Tennis Federation

events. However it was also the first

bit of tangible progress in relation

to the redevelopment of Wilding

Park and proved to generate

some real excitement amongst the

tennis community. Strengthening

work on the facility’s structural

steel and refurbishment of the

administration and function

space erased any signs of the

earthquake damage and provided

the wider community with some

great function space.

The final stage of development

will see the reinstatement of

six additional outdoor courts,

the development of a grassy

embankment for spectator viewing

and social spaces, including a

barbeque area. The facility will

continue to be available to the

local communities, including

school, charitable organisations

and, in some cases, other sports

outside of normal hours. The

final stage of development work

is scheduled to be gin in the

coming month with a completion

date of mid November, just in

time for the Summer of Tennis.

This development will allow

Canterbury to again host National

Age Group events, International

Events and, of course, future

Summer Davis Cup ties.

This year’s Davis Cup tie is a

three day event. Two singles will

be played on Friday, doubles on

Saturday and the two reverse

singles on Sunday. Matches are

the best of five sets. Tickets and

Corporate Boxes are available.

Please go to www.tennis.kiwi for

further information and pricing.

Like you, we love to serve.

Tennis Canterbury. You’ve given us a lot of proud moments and in return we

have tailored banking packages to meet members’ specific needs.

From the age of 15 Jack’s overall

goal in tennis was to gain a

scholarship to train, play and study

in the United States of America.

Through taking part in Canterbury

Performance squads since the age of

12, he constantly saw older players

being granted scholarships and

given opportunities to experience

American lifestyle through

tennis while gaining invaluable

experiences. Seeing others excel

in the college tennis system

encouraged him to start

preparation for enrolment in

Fall 2016.

In October of 2015, Jack

got in contact with John

Gardner, the head coach in

the Nelson/Marlborough region

and his company, Inspire Sports.

John’s expertise guided Jack

through a comprehensive checklist

of what he needed to achieve to

reach his ultimate goal of signing

with a college that fitted in well with

what he wanted. John’s personalised

programme was a great help. It

began with initial meetings with

Jack and his father so John could

understand what they were looking

for in a college. John then set out a

‘Plan of attack” on how they would

go about getting a contract. They

began working together through

each stage, which included NCAA

registration, skills video, personal

website, SAT and GPA results and

working through what colleges Jack

wanted to contact. Jack believes that

it would not have been possible for

him to work through everything

that needed to be done without

John’s outstanding expertise and

knowledge. Jack found John’s

attention to detail and reliability to

be outstanding.

Jack began talks with the coach

from Southeastern Oklahoma State

University in March of this year. The

coach expressed his interest in Jack

joining the college team and, after

talking through email, the college

made an offer for Jack to attend

their college and become part of the

Savage Storm athletic family. After

the initial paper work, Jack signed a

national letter of intent, committing

Jack to attending the university.

Through his years of training,

Jack’s ultimate goal was to get to

university. Jack is a self-professed

‘late bloomer’ in tennis. During his

junior years, he describes himself as

a mediocre player who was always

outside the top player category.

Through growth, maturity and the

help of the Canterbury training

programme, he was able to play

smarter tennis and achieve positive

results. Coaching by Alistair Hunt

and Matt Meredith has afforded

Jack the opportunity to learn from

the best and use their expertise on

court, creating a huge advantage.

Jack has represented Canterbury

in multiple ties including

Canterbury vs Marlborough,

City vs Country, Canterbury

team’s event and also the

Canterbury men’s team. In 2015

he won the under 18 Canterbury

Championships, a great result to put

on his college application form.

Jack has always loved the fact that

tennis is mostly an individual sport,

results are based on a player’s own

ability and there are no excuses. Jack

has always enjoyed competing in

Canterbury Interclub representing

his club of Elmwood. He is grateful

to Ashley Forbes for giving him

the opportunity to play top level

tennis in the premiere grade against

great players like James Meredith,

Remi Fennon and other top rated

players in the region. Jack feels that

it through playing top level players

that he has learned the most, even if

it involved losing.

During tennis season, Jack trains

or plays every day of the week. Each

week also includes four sessions of

hitting, two fitness sessions and two

days of interclub matches on the

weekends. During the off season

Jack keeps training with hitting

three days a week and a fitness

session and match play on the

weekends.

Jack chooses to keep his future

goals simple. His immediate goal

is to do the best he can to prepare

for college and to give himself the

best chance of success. For Jack,

this means being fit and healthy,

requiring him to train as well as he

can every time he gets on the court.

Over the long term, Jack plans to

take every opportunity he can at

Southeastern Oklahoma State in

order to reach his full potential

whilst there, not just in tennis, but

also in academic life.

For younger players aspiring to

play college tennis, Jack’s advice is

to never give up. Jack recalls many

moments in his time of playing

tennis when he thought he wasn’t

good enough, or wasn’t able to

compete to his full potential. Not

TENNIS CANTERBURY 2016 / 2017 CALENDAR

being the best player in the region

or the nation is not a problem;

it’s a challenge. By embracing

that challenge, working hard and

training, it is possible to shorten the

gap between the different levels in

order to compete in top level tennis.

Have a goal and go for it!

Jack invites anyone interested in

college tennis to feel free to ask any

questions. He will be happy to try

and answer!

Putting a friendly

face on tennis

If you were to visit Bishopdale Tennis Club on a Saturday morning, you would find the

courts buzzing with people as the junior programme is in full swing. The Kiwi programme

for 5-7 year-olds starts at 8:30am, followed by the 8+ junior programme. Players are

supported by a host of parents, uncles, aunties, and siblings.

At the heart of all this activity is the friendly face of Andrea Stanton, the club’s junior

administrator. Andrea has filled this role for the past seven years, bringing a personable

manner and professionalism to her role that has created a positive, friendly culture and a

highly successful junior programme. For this reason, Andrea has been named Junior Club

Volunteer of the Year by Tennis Canterbury.

Since Andrea first took on the administrator role, the club has seen a steady increase

from seven junior teams to 15. The club currently has approximately 130 juniors. Andrea

knows each of them – and their parents - by name. Her warm personality makes her an easy

“go-to” person for those involved with the club. She is well organised and committed to her

role, often putting in a huge number of courtside hours in support of each and every team.

Through volunteers like Andrea, Bishopdale Tennis has been able to develop a very

family orientated programme. The club welcomes players of all ages and abilities and offers

some of the best facilities in Christchurch. Players are invited to come in for a drink at the

club house to get to know other members. Bishopdale Tennis Club is located at 35 Leacroft

Street, next to Bishopdale Park.

Whether you would like play socially or competitively, come to Bishopdale Tennis Club

to meet Andrea and their other friendly volunteers.

Have Fun and Get Fit

with Cardio Tennis

Looking for a way to get fit, have fun and

meet new people? Cardio Tennis is a fitness

programme offered at tennis clubs across

Canterbury. Combining the best features of

tennis with cardiovascular exercise, Cardio

Tennis delivers a fun, full-body, calorieburning

aerobic workout ¬– even if you have

never played tennis before.

Cardio Tennis uses low-compression tennis

balls which travel at a slower speed, making

it easier for a beginner to hit the ball. More

advanced players will be challenged by a

range of activities that cater to all skill levels.

Cardio Tennis works by raising participants’

heart rates into their aerobic training zone. At

the beginning of each session, participants

are equipped with heart rate monitors before

exercising to music and using a variety of

modified equipment to elevate the heart

rate. Like interval training, periods of high

intensity are followed by short periods of rest.

Cardio Tennis combines fun with

spectacular success. Women can burn up to

500 calories in a 60 minute workout. Men

can burn up to 800 calories. Cardio Tennis

coaches are Tennis NZ registered and trained

to ensure that participants get a great workout

while improving their tennis skills.

Even if you’re not good at tennis, Cardio

Tennis can provide a fun, social way to keep

fit. Contact Tennis Canterbury to find a

Cardio Tennis programme near you.
