Chlorination

decision

looms

this week

• By Andrew King

CHLORINATING drinking

water is being considered by the

city council because some northwest

bores are at risk of being

contaminated.

The city council will consider

on Thursday whether it should

temporarily chlorinate bores

at Farrington, Grampian and

Avonhead.

Chlorination is being considered

because the north-west

catchment bores have a low D

grading, while the rest of the city

has a higher B grade.

The city council report has

recommended that temporary

chlorination goes ahead until

deeper wells are commissioned

in 2017.

Due to the shallowness of the

bores, they are considered the

most susceptible to microbiological

contaminants.

The areas “specifically affected”

will be notified, particularly

“vulnerable parties” such as

dialysis patients.

The report said that the recent

water contamination incident

in Havelock North has raised

concerns about water and public

health risks.

There are 22 bores in the

north-west catchment supplying

about 80,000 people, with the

shallowest of these at 16m.

A programme is already in

place to replace the shallow wells

with deeper ones, but currently it

is not scheduled to be completed

until the end of June 2018.

Other options for city councillors

to consider are: Upgrade the

other wells quicker without chlorination;

continue the project’s

original timeline and include

chlorination; or do nothing.

Bores at Burnside and Harewood

could have standby units

for chlorination.

Bryan Jenkins, professor for

strategic waterway management

at the Waterway Centre, said

the water will be safe to drink if

chlorinated, but with a change in

taste and smell.

“A vote for me is a

vote for a candidate

who lives in the ward.

Local solutions to

local problems.”

Keown

ELECTION PAPERS should be in

The Harewood Ward is the one

to watch, with candidates really

starting to fight for their place.

The frontrunners are likely to be

current community board member

Faimeh Burke and former city

councillor Aaron Keown. The

two Rod Camerons, both from

Cashmere, could end up splitting

the vote meaning good news for

Ms Burke and Mr Keown and

businessman Brian Gargiulo, who

is also running.

In the Waimairi Ward, Anthony

Rimmell is trying to oust current

city councillor Raf Manji. Neither

live in the area. Mr Manji has opted

for a city-wide outlook at the red

zone and the central city rebuild

instead of at issues in the area,

while Mr Rimmell looks at empowering

Swimmer ready for transplant games

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

BEN STANBURY, 11, was

once told he had a one-in-three

chance of dying.

Now, after receiving a liver

transplant last year, the young

swimmer will be the only child

organ recipient from New

Zealand to be compete at the

Australian Transplant Games

held in Sydney.

Ben, of St Albans, will travel

to Sydney this week to compete

in swimming, shot-put, a 50m

sprint and 10-pin bowling.

At four months old, Ben

was diagnosed with polycystic

kidney disease after he was

rushed to hospital with heart

failure.

The disease is a genetic disorder

where abnormal cysts grow

in the kidneys. He also

had severe problems with his

liver.

The night of his diagnosis was

a moment his mother Traci Stanbury

would never forget after she

was told he had a one-in-three

chance in dying.

“In the end they paralysed

him, put him on an ambulance

and he spent the next month

living up in Starship Hospital,”

she said.

Mrs Stanbury said since the

“traumatic” night, Ben’s heart

Last year Ben had a transplant thing over my stomach,” Ben

operation after he was donated said.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

It was an experience he

described as “confusing” but

because he recovered so quickly

from the operation he was out

of hospital in about five weeks

and back into swimming a few

months later.

Over the next few years Ben

will be looking to have a kidney

transplant with his kidney function

currently at 40 per cent.

Mrs Stanbury said he will be

put on a waiting list of about

600 people when it gets to 30 per

cent.

But for now, Ben is looking

forward to going over to competing

in the games as well as visiting

Featherdale Wildlife Park.

“For him to be the exact same

as everyone else in the room and

to be completely normal, that is

quite a cool thing for him to do,”

Mrs Stanbury said.

Inspired by paralympian Sophie

Pascoe, who won five medals

at the Rio Paralympics, Ben

will be competing in numerous

events including his favourite

sport of swimming.

Ben first became interested

in swimming at age four and

leading up to the games he has

been practising once a week in

preparation.

“Never give up because it can

always be done,” he said.

“Ben is very proud of the fact

he is going. He is a very laid-back

kid by nature just because of

everything he has been through,”

Mrs Stanbury said.

We need City Councillors who put

you, the community’s interest

and our city’s future at the heart

of their decision making.

Having served as an elected

Community Board member

for twelve years, I will bring a

strong mix of local government

experience, leadership skills and

integrity to the Council.

With your support, I will work

hard for a safer, sustainable and

community focused city.

• Making streets and intersections safer for

everybody especially school pupils, cyclists, the

elderly and people with disabilities;

• Protecting the purity of our water supply;

• Restoring and protecting our streams and

waterways;

• Rebuilding our community facilities;

• Revamping the Bishopdale Mall in collaboration

with the community and local business;

• Efficient and cost-effective public transport;

• Enhancing parks and green spaces;

• Protecting our strategic assets;

• Affordable rates.

We said:

Both the Waimairi and

Wai-iti streams have dried

up. A potential solution has

been found, but the flow-on

effects could dry out other

streams

You said:

Janey Thomas – Sadly this

is only the start. Unchecked rural

water extraction and successive

droughts have pretty much guaranteed

this outcome.

Matt Cuthill – How about

actually controlling the farmers’

draw down instead of just endlessly

issuing abatement notices.

Jahaan Ormandy – ECan

have been a failure since day one.

Readers respond to

last week’s article about

the cost of possibly

replenishing streams in the

north-west area

L J Dell, Bishopdale

I do hope that any council

decision to attempt to restore the

(Waimairi) or Wai-iti streams is

based on hydrology and biology

and not on the political need to

appease neighbouring voters.

Christchurch water should be

treasured and not tinkered with.

If that means doing nothing for

the greater long-term good of

the waterways, then the council

should close its collective ears to

the wails, bite the bullet

and do nothing. Let nature

take its course. If these streams

can magically be reinstated

without robbing other sources,

then well and good, but to a

layperson this occurrence seems

to be something we must sadly

live with and robbing Peter to

pay Paul will just degrade other

areas. Decisions such as this

should be based on sound science

and not politics or finances.

Rod S Cameron,

Cashmere

I wish to address some

concerns I am hearing in the

north-west community about

well-water, springs and streams.

Some of our wells are relatively

shallow, which means they are

classified as slightly higher

risk of pollution and some of

our springs and streams are

running dry, but none of these

things should be cause for panic.

We should drill some deeper

wells quickly, as the council

intends and we should study

the aquifers and drains together

with Environment Canterbury

to understand what is happening

with ground water. This

is normal good infrastructure

management, which will allow

the best planning, ensure we enjoy

our pure water and minimise

our costs. All along, we must

keep everyone informed so that

concerns are minimised. These

are the approaches I will always

follow if I am elected for Harewood.

Sound infrastructure

management, control of finances

and community engagement.

City council candidate for

Waimairi, Anthony Rimell,

writes in response to city

councillor Jamie Gough’s

opinion piece last week

Anthony Rimell, Central

I’m deeply disappointed in

Jamie Gough’s opinion piece in

the Nor’West News, September

13. Mr Gough has taken the fact

that he was elected unopposed

and used it against a system that

in fact provides a far better level

of community accountability

for our local councillors. Some

facts will show this. In the

2013 local body elections, the

Fendalton-Waimairi Ward, an

area that included Harewood,

elected two councillors from a

field of eight candidates. This

year, the same area in fact has

the same number of candidates

running – eight. And that

same area will now have three

councillors representing its

issues on the city council, not

just two. I’m also disappointed

that Mr Gough has dismissed

the importance of local

accountability of councillors to a

specific constituency. Of course

councillors must consider the

needs of the entire city. But

for too long some councillors

have put the needs of the very

people who elected them a

distant second. The new system

requires councillors now to

ensure they are representing

both the city and their local

community. That’s putting

the ‘local’ back in local body

politics. In my view, one of the

reasons some councillors have

been re-elected unopposed is

because their local communities

are extremely satisfied with their

representation. Rather than

undermining the new system,

that actually endorses one of

the new system’s core principles

of greater local accountability.

Clearly, Mr Gough and

the others are seen by their

communities to be doing a good

job. That’s something to be

applauded, not dismissed.

Safety risk sparks playground upgrade

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A PLAYGROUND at Abberley

Park, St Albans, will get a

makeover after concerns the

current equipment is not up to

scratch.

The deteriorating equipment

will be transformed into a fullscale

playground.

It will consist of new swings,

a carousal, rocking horse, maypole,

talk tubes and a see-saw,

with astroturf as the surface.

The playground renewal

landscape plan was approved by

the Shirley-Papanui Community

Board last Wednesday.

Located on Abberley Crescent,

the current playground on the

east side of the park includes a

swing, slide, ramp and see-saw.

Following investigations, the

city council found the existing

play equipment did not meet the

Playground Standards.

Safety issues found included

the swings rusting around the

leg support, while both slide

chutes were too shallow, which

could lead to a child falling off

the slide.

But St Albans residents were

concerned by the amount of

green space the park would lose

as a result of the playground

expansion.

The existing green space by

playground to be upgraded at

Abberley Park. ​

the playground is about 1473m2,

with the new playground expected

to reduce it to about 1349m2.

St Albans Residents’ Association

co-chair Emma Twaddell

said the city council’s consultation

process caused confusion

with the residents.

“There were different plans

put out that didn’t have the same

information put on them,” she

said.

She said the main issue was the

extension of the playground being

at the expense of other park

users.

From the 1300 leaflets delivered,

the city council received 98

submissions with 20 opposing

the proposal and 11 not stating

their preference.

community manager Darren

Moses said the layout of the playground

was changed by moving

equipment further west in the

park.

This created a more linear

playground along the south

boundary leaving a larger lawn

area than what was in the original

plan.

Shirley-Papanui Community

Board chairman Mike Davidson

said while they could not please

everyone, a decision needed to be

made.

“It has to be renewed...unfortunately

you can’t just leave them

and hope nothing 3 happens, because

if something does happen

then someone is obviously going

to be held accountable,” he said.

Construction for the playground

is expected to begin in

March and be completed by May.

Mr Moses said the cost of the

playground could not be estimated

until the tender process was

finished and it was commercially

sensitive.

In Brief

NOT ARSON

A fire that caused millions of

dollars in damage to a building

in Burnside on Friday is not

suspicious, according to a fire

investigator. The building,

owned by Tait Communications,

suffered major damage after

a light blew out, causing a

fire while cleaners were at the

site. Several appliances and 42

firefighters fought the blaze

and managed to save vital

equipment.

TWO TAKEN TO HOSPITAL

Two men were taken to

Christchurch Hospital with

moderate injuries after the

vehicle they were travelling

in went off the road in Belfast

on Sunday. St John sent two

first response units and two

ambulances to the scene on

Radcliffe Rd at about 10.30pm.

Both men were assessed and

taken to hospital for further

treatment.

ROAD WORKS

A road closure will be in place

along Francis Ave between

properties 38 and 54 while a new

section of wastewater mainline

is replaced over the next six

weeks. The work will generate

some low volume noise during

the hours of 7am to 6pm.

Parking will be restricted

around the work area.

Solutions to gridlock

What should be done about the traffic

congestion in the Papanui Ward,

particularly along roads like Main

North Rd, Cranford St and Papanui

Rd? Is rail an option that should be

pursued?

John Stringer:

Papanui Ward

city council

and community

board

candidate

Explore HOV

(high occupancy vehicle) use, or

T2 as they call it in Auckland,

of the bus lane on Papanui Rd.

Use the largely unused lane at

peak traffic times to help clear

northbound bumper-to-bumper

traffic out on to Main North Rd.

Simon Britten: Papanui Ward

community board candidate

Reduction of traffic congestion

has been a priority for the current

Shirley-Papanui Community

Board and, if elected, I will support

continued work in this area. We can

expect construction of the Northern Corridor

to begin soon – this project will have a massive

impact on traffic flows, and the new Papanui-Innes

Community Board will need to continue to work

with affected residents. Rail as a commuter option

was assessed unfavourably in 2014, but alternative

public transport options, such as light rail, need

to be considered, as well as the board supporting

ongoing work on cycleways and fine-tuning of the

bus network.

Elections 16

Mike Davidson: Papanui Ward city council

candidate

The Christchurch Northern Corridor project will

begin shortly and, when completed, will reduce

congestion on Main North and Papanui Rds. As

Chairperson of the Shirley-Papanui Community

Board, I have been actively involved in addressing

the impact this will have on Cranford St, surrounding streets

and communities. Dedicated and continuous bus lanes and safe

cycleways reduce congestion by encouraging people to use different

transport options. When elected, I will continue the work I

have already started around this issue, including the downstream

effects of the Cranford St four-laning. I will also advocate for rail

to be investigated as a long-term solution to congestion.

Emma Norrish: Papanui Ward

community board candidate

The completion of the Northern

Arterial and the Northern Arterial

Extension will make a big difference

to traffic patterns in the Papanui

Ward. However, this is nearly

four years away. Right now we need to incentivise

other alternatives such as public transport,

cycling and carpooling. I will lobby for bus lanes

to be opened up to vehicles with more than one

occupant to encourage carpooling. I also want

to increase the publicity and education around

the safe and direct cycleways currently being

planned and constructed, and to be involved in

ensuring these are designed and utilised to their

full potential.

BACKED UP:

Gridlocked roads

in the Papanui

Ward are cause

for concern

for hopeful

candidates.

Congestion is a

concern along

main roads in

Papanui such as

Main North Rd,

Cranford St and

Papanui Rd.

NOR’WEST NEWS Tuesday September 20 2016 7

With the October 8 deadline looming for the local body elections, the

Nor’West News asked candidates to send in why they should get your vote.

The area is covered by four wards - Innes, Papanui, Fendalton and Central.

A city councillor is elected from each, except from Fendalton where city

councillor Jamie Gough stands unopposed. Two are selected from each

ward to be on the community board, apart from Innes where Ali Jones and Jo

Byrne stood unopposed.

Pauline Cotter:

Innes Ward - city

councillor

Our council succeeded

in restoring

relationships with the

Crown, Ngai Tahu, Environment

Canterbury ,Canterbury District

Health Board, and is working

collaboratively with our communities,

adopting an enabling

attitude. The long awaited decision

allowing the Edgeware Pool

Group to rebuild their community

pool is but one example. The

People’s Choice have successfully

retained our assets, while still

progressing the rebuild, keeping

rates increases low. I look

for opportunities to enhance our

water quality within our land

drainage recovery programme,

am passionate about safe guarding

of our pure water. Allocations

must be monitored, enforcements

applied, consents more

realistic. I offer representation

with compassion, logic, financial

prudence.

John Stringer:

Papanui Ward -

city councillor and

Papanui-Innes

Community Board

Christchurch City

Ambassador John Stringer is the

only candidate who lives in the

ward. He grew up (and raised

his family) in Papanui; is married

to Laurie; attends St Pauls

Anglican and Northcity churches;

attended Elmwood, Heaton and

Chch Boys High schools and sent

his kids to Paparoa St, Heaton,

St Bedes and Burnside High

schools. He has an MA from

Victoria University and worked

in Parliament for many years. He

operates a local security company

and a local food business;

is involved in the High Court;

has coached local Christchurch

kids’ rugby; and is active in the

Canterbury arts scene.

Mike Davidson:

Papanui Ward -

city councillor

As the current

Chairperson of the

Shirley/Papanui

Community Board I have worked

hard to advocate for local residents

and communities. Having

lived locally for over 20 years, I

know our ward. Recent boundaries

changes have pushed me just

outside of our ward, but my affiliation

is with this area and I want

to continue to represent you, our

many communities and our city.

I am an independent candidate. I

bring experience, local knowledge,

business acumen, leadership and

energy. Your support will ensure

that I can continue the work I

have already started and allow our

city to keep moving forward.

Waimairi Ward -

city councillor

As Chair of Strategy

and Finance, I have

helped guide the

council through a difficult time.

Our complex financial situation

has been clarified and stabilized.

There are still many challenges

ahead: trying to keep a lid on and

reduce rates increases, finishing

the repairs to our roads and footpaths,

restoring our community

infrastructure and facilities, and

devolving more decision making

to the local level. I will be supporting

more residential development

in the central city and that

the red zone must be restored in

an ecologically sustainable manner

in order to make it a longterm

asset for the city.”

Anthony Rimmell:

Waimairi Ward -

city councillor

I am passionate

about empowering

local communities to

make decisions for their future.

As a Baptist pastor, I want to see

our city council work together for

the interests of all the people of

Christchurch. I believe our city’s

future financial and social security

is best protected by keeping

our key income-generating assets

in council ownership, and by

ensuring quality, affordable housing

is available for all.

Together, we can protect and

enhance our waterways and

parks. If elected I’ll advocate

passionately for the needs of residents

in Waimairi.

Brian Gargiulo: Harewood Ward - city councillor

I have lived in the Harewood area for 60 years, owning and operating a commercial property

growing tomatoes and raspberries. This operation employed up to 50 people of many different

ethnicities. I am currently a company director of produce companies in NZ and overseas.

People are important to me. I want to create an environment in Harewood and greater

Christchurch that is conducive to a desirable quality of life in all aspects of work, travel and

recreation. I take a common sense approach to all my decision making and consider how the decisions I

make affect others. I can listen, learn and make decisions on your behalf.

‘Army’ to the rescue

• By Gabrielle Stuart

Tuesday September 20 2016

THE PLIGHT of children

rescued from their homes

by Child, Youth and Family,

sometimes with nothing but

the clothes on their back, has

mobilised an army.

“Paddy’s Army”, that is – a

group of about 25 St Patrick’s

School pupils in Bryndwr who

have collected almost 150 pairs of

pyjamas to give to foster children.

The pyjamas will be included in

backpacks made up by volunteer

group Foster Hope Christchurch,

which also include things like

toiletries, books and soft toys.

Co-ordinator Ngarie Worsley

said the packs were personalised

for each foster child, to try to make

them feel loved and valued at a

rough point in their lives, when

they had to leave their own homes

to move in with a foster family.

“We used to see children come

with garbage bags full of stuff,

and if your stuff is in a garbage

bag you don’t exactly feel so

great,” she said.

The St Patrick’s pupils were

inspired to help by the stories

of one of their classmates, who

was a foster child, Paddy’s Army

member Izzy Gibson said.

“We thought that we’re so

Izzie Gibson with some of the 148 pairs of pyjamas their class

raised money to buy for foster children. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

lucky to have all the things that

we have, when some people are

being taken out of their homes

in the middle of the night to go

to a family that they don’t even

know,” she said.

They created posters, spoke in assembly

to inspire their fellow pupils

to help, and did “a lot of nagging”

to collect the pyjamas, fellow army

member Kate Wield said.

In the past, the pupils have

organised a blanket collection for

St Vincent de Paul, and they plan

to do more to help local charities

in the future.

Mrs Worsley said the pupils’

effort would make a huge difference

to Foster Hope, which works

to put together about 5000 packs

each year.

“It just blows my mind and I

think it’s incredible, because 150

pairs of pyjamas means that we

can more than do what we need

to do this year,” she said.

She said the charity still needed

donations of things like toiletries,

small toys or craft activities.

$26,000 raised

for Maddie

MORE THAN $26,000 was

raised for a St Margaret’s

College pupil in need of a

kidney transplant.

A total of $26,218.10 has been

donated to 12-year-old Maddie

Collins (right) following a ball

held recently for her.

Maddie Collins is in need

of a kidney transplant and her

best hopes of finding a suitable

match require her to travel to

the United States. The trip is

expected to cost $350,000.

The ball was held on September

3 and the money was raised

from ticket sales, donations

and an auction.

Fundraising efforts continue

with a national mufti day

planned for tomorrow.

West Melton School is joining

the fundraising efforts to

help ex-pupil Maddie, who lives

in the area.

The event has been put

together for schools and businesses

across the country to get

involved in.

West Melton School principal

Sue Jackson said the school

had no hesitation in getting

involved in ‘Mufti Day for

Maddie.’

“We were touched by Maddie

NOR’WEST NEWS

and her family when she was

a student here. Maddie is such

a wonderful girl who has so

much to offer. Taking part in

this event is the least we can do.

“We often have mufti days

for good causes. I can’t think

of a better one than this,” Mrs

Jackson said.

The mufti day is a fundraising

event held across the country

for schools and businesses

to help raise the money needed

for Maddie to get to the US.

Spectacular night under

the stars raises $10,000

OPENING: Pupils from Harewood School were excited to

be involved in the opening of the Russley Rd underpass last

week. Aidan Brannan (below left), of McConnell Dowell and

Downer, and school leaders Jacob Frost and Brianna Gauci,

both aged 10, buried a time capsule with New Zealand

Transport Agency southern region director Jim Harland.

The time capsule included stories the pupils had written.

The new underpass allows cyclists and walkers to safely

get across the road. The New Zealand Transport Agency

is undertaking $112 million worth of upgrades to the road

which is expected to be completed in 2018.

Open Air School with about

1200 people showing up to the

event.

The Spectacular Space and

Science Night was held last

Friday to raise money so the

school can further advance its

outdoor spaces.

Robots, the Martin Jetpack,

a planetarium and hand-made

rockets were just some of the fun

activities featured at the event.

Fendalton School parent

teachers association member

Sarah Bourke said about $10,000

was raised from the evening.

“It was brilliant. There was the

most amazing community buzz

around the place,” she said.

Mrs Bourke said the event

brought a diverse range of

people together with the Chinese

community making dumplings

and Japanese making sushi.

While it has not been decided

what type of spaces the money

will go towards, the school is

looking at options including

gardens, outdoor furniture,

landscaping and painting

murals.

Christchurch 8042

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A MUSICAL director from

Merivale has played a key

role in preparing one of New

Zealand’s longest running

choirs for a production of

Evita.

Music director Angus

Simmons, 20, has not only

taught the Christchurch

Boys’ Choir the music, but

also plays an aristocrat in the

production.

The choir, which has been

singing for about 30 years, has

been performing in Evita at

the Isaac Theatre Royal since

last Thursday.

Made up of boys aged nine

to 13, the choir represents a

traditional 1950s Argentine

church choir in a staged

requiem mass.

Simmons said the company

was going to audition the

group, but realised it was

historically correct to have a

choir made up of unbroken,

treble male voices.

“The boys’ singing is very

angelic so the audience will

appreciate it a lot,” he said.

Simmons said, for some of

the boys, it is their first time

ever performing on stage in

full costume.

ON STAGE: The Christchurch Boys’ Choir rehearse for Evita, which is currently playing at

the Isaac Theatre Royal.

“They have risen to the

occasion and know exactly

where they stand and I think

they will add to that cute

factor people look for in

shows,” he said.

From the choir of 24 boys,

12 will perform on alternative

nights throughout the season.

The choir’s aim is to give

young singers an opportunity

to be exposed to the music

community. In the past,

they have performed

with the Christchurch

Symphony Orchestra and the

Christchurch City Choir.

Simmons has run the choir

since the beginning of last

year along with his partner

Kimberley Wood.

The rock opera follows the

life of Eva Peron, the second

wife of Argentine president

Juan Peron.

Eva served as the first lady of

Argentina from 1946 until her

untimely death at the age of 33

in 1952.

“The show portrays her in a

light that isn’t positive. Some

people loved her and some

people despised her so you

have to make up your mind,”

Simmons said.

Simmons wants to become a

professional opera singer. He is

studying a bachelor of music,

majoring in performance

voice, at Canterbury

University,

“I am hoping to live a

life of music. Performing

would be ideal but I am not

shutting down any other

opportunities whether it

is directing in choirs or

whatever,” he said.

•Evita will run until October

Catwalk to fight breast cancer

• By Annabelle Dick

SEVEN NEW Zealand women,

on average, will hear the news

today that they have breast

cancer.

Breast Cancer Cure is trying

to help reduce that statistic

by holding a fashion show in

Christchurch, and around the

country, with New Zealand’s

biggest designers.

The nationwide Fashion for a

Cure charity show on Thursday

will display collections from

Kiwi designers to raise funds for

breast cancer research.

Breast Cancer Cure general

manager Phillipa Green said the

event is important as it provides

financial support for ongoing

study.

“This show is absolutely vital

for us. It’s our biggest earner and

it’s important because we don’t

do a bucket collection day or

fundraising week so this is one

of the ways that we raise a lot of

money from the public. They’re

actually donating it and getting a

lot back in return,” she said.

A pool of high-end designers

from around the country will

light up the Christchurch Art

Gallery on September 22.

and Zambesi will all show their

Spring/Summer collections on

the catwalk.

It’s the first time Elisabeth

Findlay’s Zambesi will appear at

the Christchurch show and she’ll

be bringing a range men’s and

women’s clothes to the table.

Designers will also donate

items from the show to put up

for auction to add to the money

pot.

New Zealand Familial Breast

Cancer Study co-ordinator Dr

Logan Walker will also speak to

the audience about the organisations

ongoing research.

“One of the main pillars for

our fundraising throughout

the year is to connect with

more New Zealanders around

the country and not just be an

Auckland-based charity. This is

a way to reach out to people,” Ms

Green said.

More than $250,000 was raised

from all five shows in 2015 and

the charity want to crack the

$300,000 mark this year.

“Just from Christchurch,

we would like to get over the

$50,000 mark,” she said.

Fashion for a Cure has been

running since 2012.

Breast cancer is the most

common cancer for women, and

the third most common cancer

overall.

The disease affects one in

nine New Zealand women over

their lifetime and more than

600 women die from it every

year.

Christchurch’s Fashion for

a Cure show will be hosted by

Michelle Pickles on Thursday,

September 22.

Looking

good at

the races

IT’S FUN to strut your stuff

and have a good time at the

races, but as Vania Bailey says,

don’t forget etiquette.

“You don’t want to be a show

pony. You need to look polished

but most importantly you need

to feel comfortable in your own

skin.

“Don’t reveal too much.

Remember the rules – if you

are showing off a bit of cleavage

then wear a longer skirt. If you

have a long split in your dress

don’t show off your chest. Don’t

have everything on show – be

discreet.

“Accessories are important to

pull your outfit together – shoes,

short gloves and a matching

fascinator or hat.

“If you are going to wear

something fitted make sure you

wear the right garments underneath

so there are no outlines or

bumps.

“If you decide on a spray tan,

have a trial a few weeks before.

You don’t want to turn orange

on the day. Book your hair, nails

and makeup in advance.”

AN AWARD-WINNING

It has already been on display

at Te Papa in Wellington, and

visitors.

The exhibition begins with a

look at Air New Zealand’s uniform

designs over the years, as

well as traveller and crew stories.

It moves into the aircraft and

flight aspect of the airline’s history,

including the TEAL flying

boat era, and the early days of

flight in Canterbury.

The story of former Christchurch

Mayor Henry Wigram’s flying

school and Lady Constance

Stewart’s involvement with

the Canterbury Aero Club are

explored.

It also looks at tourism pioneer

Rodolph Wigley, who founded

the Mt Cook Group that

later included Mount Cook

Airlines.

The exhibition also features a

virtual reality in-flight experience

and takes a look at its

promotion posters, videos and

examples of how the airline has

adapted over 75 years.

It won best exhibition at the

New Zealand events awards last

month, beating the Gallipoli

World War 1 exhibition at Te

It will run until March 26 2017.

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe

work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in

fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in

australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents

or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result

in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

course content and give you options that will best suit your needs.

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is

up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where

it is located.

IN A first for tennis in

Canterbury, Waimairi

Tennis Club will offer

two novel coaching

programmes this summer

– one conducted in

Mandarin, and the other

for pre-schoolers.

Club senior coach Adam

Gard’ner, who has some

Chinese Mandarin skills,

saw an opportunity for

Christchurch’s expanding

Mandarin-speaking community

to get involved in

tennis.

“Many new people to the

city are looking for ways

to meet up with others, to

have fun and to exercise,

and this programme will

provide exactly those opportunities.

It’s a ‘learn to

play programme’ and it is

based on Tennis New Zealand’s

‘Tennis Xpress’ programme

for learners and

intermediate level players.

The big difference though,

is that it will be delivered

predominantly in the

Mandarin language,” said

Gard’ner

Shanghai, China was

home to Gard’ner and his

family for 12 years while

he was involved in tennis

management at the Shanghai

Racquet Club, and

coach development with

the Professional Tennis

Registry.

“There’s a real passion

for tennis in China and

players like Li Na are like

superstars. We’re sure that

local Mandarin speakers

will be just as enthusiastic

about our programme,”

says Gard’ner.

president, Lloyd Russell

says the idea to introduce

coaching is a fantastic opportunity

for the club.

“Having Adam with his

Mandarin language skills

seemed a great chance

to further our efforts to

attract a new sector of

players. We’re sure this

programme will be a hit

with the Christchurch

community,” said Russell.

Waimairi Tennis Club

will also offer a new Tennis

Hotshots ‘Blue Stage’

programme this summer.

Russell says it will provide

three to five-year-olds with

an eight-session introductory

programme that

focuses on fundamental

perceptual motor skills,

building movement, ball

and racquet skills.

With a total of 500

members – juniors and

seniors – the club is the

largest in Canterbury.

Each season it enters

upward of 11 senior and

35 junior teams in Canterbury

Effective treatment for many

types of pain

Complementary medicine is becoming

increasingly sought after in New Zealand

as people become aware of the many

different methods of treating pain and ill

health that are available here.

Christchurch-based Chinese health

practitioner Lan Xiao has developed a

method of treatment, which she says has

as an immediate affect on a wide variety of

pains and health conditions. It is known

as ‘acupuncture without needles’.

Lan describes it as being similar to

reflexology in that the problem area on

the body is determined through pressure,

but is much more accurate.

Trained as a medical practitioner in

China, Lan came to New Zealand in 1992

and began practising acupuncture in

1995. From that discipline she created her

acupuncture without needles, and uses

it to treat people of all ages with many

different types of pain in all parts of the

body. This can include arthritic pain, MS,

and pain from injury.

“For example, the treatment has been

very successful for people who have

painful joints caused by arthritis,” Lan

says.

Acupuncture without needles is also

effective in restoring energy levels,

she says.

“As people age their energy is reduced,

and this can lead to other health

problems. The acupuncture without

needles treatment is like the body’s

battery being charged up again, so their

energy levels are restored, which in turn

helps overcome their health problems.”

Lan also uses it to treat depression

and anxiety, and says it can help with

addiction problems as well.

“After the treatment the person has no

cravings – because it treats the cause of

the addiction.”

She says the results are immediate,

though people may need several

treatments, depending on the extent

of their health problem, and while it

is slightly painful for few moments,

everyone can tolerate it.

Lan Xiao’s website, www.

drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes

videos of people whose health problems

have been overcome after receiving the

treatment.

Her clinic is located at 108 Sawyers

Arms Road, and her hours are Monday,

Wednesday and Friday from 12pm to

5pm. To discuss your health issues or

make an appointment, phone 323 4168

or 027 231 8388.

Lan describes it as

being similar to

reflexology in that the

problem area on the

body is determined

through pressure, but

is much more accurate.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Research

Supports

Eye Health

Nutritional researchers have discovered a range

of nutrients that are essential for eye health. Some

of the most essential nutrients that have been

shown to protect and even improve eye function

are:

Selenium, is a trace mineral that is low in

N.Z. soils and therefore in many of our foods.

Researchers believe selenium may help prevent

cataracts, macular degeneration (the leading cause

of impaired vision in older people) and may also

improve dry eyes and general eye health.

Zinc is a mineral that a large percentage of the

population are low in. Zinc has been shown to

help protect the eyes from the damaging effects

of light as well as slow vision loss due to macular

degeneration.

Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Beta-carotene

(Pro-vitamin A) and Copper have potent

antioxidant ability and help protect the eyes from

damage

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are amazing nutrients

that have been shown in landmark research to

not only provide potent eye protection but may

even help reverse some of the signs of age-related

macular degeneration (AMD).

Bilberry and Blackcurrant, high in potent

antioxidants may help protect the lens and retina

from damage and reduce the risk of cataracts. They

also may help improve blood supply to the eye,

strengthen the small capillaries of the eye and may

help improve night vision, may alleviate many eye

ailments including eye fatigue that may be caused

by reading, driving and computers.

Eyebright may help normalise eye pressure and

reduce eye allergies.

Taurine is an amino acid that is essential for

correct eye function. It may also have a detoxifying

affect on the eye.

Vitamin B2 may help alleviate eye fatigue,

bloodshot eyes and maintain good vision.

Yumberry is the latest in eye protection. It

provides many nutrients, is rich in oligomeric

proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) that are potent

antioxidants that may protect eyesight.

These nutrients taken in a therapeutic amount

should provide comprehensive eye protection, may

slow and possibly even help reverse eye damage

that could lead to loss of vision. All these nutrients

are available in an economical one a day easy to

swallow capsule.

SUPER CitriMax

CLINICAL STRENGTH GARCINIA CAMBOGIA

According to Dr. Oz an extract of Garcinia Cambogia, (a small

pumpkin-like fruit) called Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) or CitriMax,

is the most effective & fastest working natural supplement to

support weight loss.

Researchers found it:

• Helps stop fat being made & stored in the body

• Suppresses appetite & cravings. Feel fuller for longer

• Increases energy levels & lean muscle mass

• Increases Serotonin levels in the brain, especially good for

emotional eaters. Serotonin may also improve mood & sleep.

• Improves cholesterol & blood lipid levels

Swanson Super CitriMax is a unique patented extract that

is highly bio-available & clinically proven for reliable results.

Care For Your Joints

They’re critical to remain

healthy and mobile

Refuse to accept joint pain and stiffness as part of life. Do

the work to maintain and support your joints to get the

best out of them for as long as possible.

Research from Johns Hopkins

University confirms that in the

treatment of arthritis, exercise and

physical activity has many benefits.

• Regular exercise helps keep

muscles around the joints strong,

decrease bone loss and control joint

swelling and pain.

• Strengthening the muscles

surrounding affected joints helps

to relieve pressure on the joint and

cartilage.

• Regular exercise helps replenish

lubrication of the joint cartilage and

reduces stiffness and pain.

• Lack of physical activity is

associated with increased muscle

weakness, joint stiffness, reduced

range of motion and fatigue

• Exercise needs to be directed at

the entire body and not just the joints

that are affected with arthritis.

The golden rule for joint health -

Keep moving!

The more you move

the less pain and

stiffness you will have.

have found it to

increase fat loss by

2 to 3 times greater

Even without exercise & diet

changes many have found it beneficial,

although even better & quicker results

are often obtained with extra exercise

& an improved diet.

The extract of this amazing fruit is

called Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) or

CitriMax. Research has shown HCA

to help suppress the appetite, reduce

cravings, feel fuller for longer, increase

energy levels, help prevent fat from

being made & stored in the body,

increase lean muscle mass, increase

serotonin levels in the brain that

help control mood & sleep (great for

Enjoy unique shopping to be found at Women’s Expo

With over 200 sites to browse, unique businesses to discover,

shopping, bargains and laughter, the Expo is the ultimate day

out for every woman.

One of the appeals the Expo has to

visitors is the variety of companies

involved with everything from

jewellery and shoes to activewear

and fitness to skincare and health

products to gourmet food and wine

and even a company offering plantbased

cooking classes for Kids &

Adults. There really is something for

everyone and all ages.

Renee Murray from NZME Events,

organiser of the Expo says “Our

aim is to have as wide of a range

of companies involved with the

Expo as possible. Women are all

different and their individual interests

are so diverse. One woman

may love the latest in makeup or

skincare but the woman beside

her may be more interested in

cycling the Otago Central Rail Trail

or sampling handmade cheese.

It’s great on the weekend to see

all the various women visit the

show, from teenagers to business

women, mothers to grandmothers

and friends simply enjoying each

other’s company. It’s becoming

more common for us to see three

generations visit the Expo together

as well, with the daughter, mother

and grandmother all enjoying the

show and spending the day with

each other.”

Brandhouse will exhibit at the Expo

for the first time with their range of

champagne, vodka, port and wines.

Popular at other Expo’s this year

has been the Royal Dragon’s elite

flavour vodka collection with some

flavours selling out. Introducing

the most tantalizing and unique

flavoured vodka collection of its time

flavours include Watermelon, Green

Apple, Passion Fruit, Chocolate and

Lychee… A great vodka collection

to enjoy neat, on the rocks or in

your favourite cocktail! Visit the

large Brandhouse site at the show

to sample from their fabulous range

and take home what you love.

Christinz Clothing will visit the show

for the first time, travelling from

Balclutha to showcase her selection

of Designer Clothing including;

pants, stunning tops, skirts, base

layers and jackets. A popular

item are her batwing sleeve tops with a

flattering shape through front to suit all

sizes and with pink, gold, navy, black

and silver in the colour range these tops

look great with jeans, skirts or leggings.

Christinz Clothing are located in the Expo

Fashion Zone.

The High Protein Breakfast Company

will travel all the way from Auckland with

their exclusive High Protein Muesli. Not

not only tastes great but helps with weight

management, health and fitness. Without

many of the sugars or fillers that so many

processed breakfast foods contain these

mueslis will keep you fuller for longer and

with flavours including

Nectarine and Feijoa
