Landscaping U-turn by BP

on neighbouring property

• By Gabrielle Stuart

and Andrew King

EDGEWARE BP has agreed to

plant trees around it’s newlyredeveloped

site – but no-one has

told the neighbour who raised

the concern.

Cornwall St resident Kazu

Kano and other neighbours

spent more than six months

trying to fight the expansion

of the BP, but the plan was

approved at a resource consent

hearing heard by commissioner

David Mountfort.

Where there was once a row of

established trees, Mr Kano’s view

now is of a 20m long, almost 5m

high white wall just behind the

boundary fence, which reflects

glare into his home.

BP initially refused the

residents’ requests to plant extra

trees to hide the wall.

But it appears to have done

a U-turn after Mayor Lianne

Dalziel called personally about

the landscaping.

Ms Dalziel stepped in after

articles highlighting the problem

were published in the Nor’West

News and The Star.

She said while she made a call

to the company, the real work

was done by city council staff.

“I believe it is being implemented

now and I am pleased

for the neighbour who was

concerned,” she said.

At the July hearing,

residents tried to stop BP and its

plans to add four more pumps, 12

car parks plus a bigger forecourt.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel waded

into the battle asking BP to work

with city council staff to find a

solution.

Planting of trees to hide the

fence, the city council said,

started yesterday.

Mr Kano said he is still waiting

to be notified of what is going on.

“I haven’t heard anything,” he

said.

Mayor Dalziel said while this is

a good outcome it does highlight

how little influence neighbours

and the city council has on the

resource consent process.

to help elderly

Bryndwr’s Iola Davies is one of many Christchurch

residents who have signed up to Sam Johnson’s

newest venture WeVisit. She is pictured with

WeVisit intern and Victoria University student

Isaiah Ratahi. WeVisit aims to connect the city’s

elderly with student visitors. Student Volunteer

Army founder Sam Johnson said the initiative was

a companion service for the elderly that matched

them with a trusted and trained young person,

who would visit each week, share time, do odd

jobs and keep families in the loop. “Essentially,

we are recruiting a network of New Zealand’s

most helpful grandchildren to support busy

families, expats and those who live apart,” Mr

Johnson said.

NOR’WEST NEWS

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News...................................... 3-9

IT’S TAKEN a while but finally we

have some good news today for the

affected residents that opposed the

Edgeware BP expansion.

BP will plant shrubs to try and

minimise the affect the new shop

has along Kazu Kano’s fence. Time

will tell how effective that is, but

BP should also be painting the

back of their shop to reduce the

glare on the Kanos’ back porch.

It will be at travesty if BP doesn’t.

As we reported last week, Mayor

Lianne Dalziel jumped in to push

BP into doing something and this

appears to have worked. Thanks

Lianne. But if it wasn’t for Nor’West

News and The Star fighting for

the residents, nothing would have

been done. The city council was

complicit in the resource consent

process that allowed this to happen

and local councillor Pauline Cotter

didn’t seem interested in the latest

battle, as we reported recently.

Village expansion opened

RESIDENTS IN The Russley

Village have a brand new $10

million community centre

which was opened by John Key

on Friday.

The ‘Homestead’ was opened

on the site of the old Russley

Hotel which first opened in

1964.

As well as Mr Key more than

200 guests were in attendance,

including local MP and Minister

of Transport Gerry Brownlee

– who once worked at the old

hotel – master of ceremonies

Peter Townsend, former hotel

manager Peter Morrison and village

ambassador Judy Bailey.

Village director Graham

Wilkinson said the brief for the

build recognised the importance

of the history of the site.

“The Russley Hotel was of

huge significance to Christchurch,”

he said.

“We wanted to preserve this

by creating a sophisticated country

club experience that captures

some of the old hotel’s warmth

and ambience.”

Like the old hotel, the new

Homestead has areas purposebuilt

for entertainment and

socialising including a boutique

cinema with tiered seats and a

café and brasserie.

Upstairs, there is an intimate

lounge. There is also a library,

study and computer area, an arts

and crafts space as well as a hair

salon and wellness rooms for

health professionals.

There are a number of contemporary

design features

throughout, from the marble reception

and weathered bronzed

finishes to more traditional

design elements such as exposed

rafters and vaulted ceilings

with skylights to diffuse light

throughout.

“The Russley Hotel was well

known for its friendly fireplaces.

We’ve emulated this and have

installed within the Homestead

three stunning fireplaces featuring

herringbone brick liners and

raked limestone hearths,” Mr

Wilkinson said.

“The Russley was also the

first hotel in the south island

to have a swimming pool and

became quite famous for its

parties. Again, in keeping with

the history of the site, we have

started the construction of an

indoor heated pool and spa

complex.”

The new Homestead complex,

was designed by Christchurchbased

Dalman Architects and

Auckland-based Lauren Hare

Interiors.

In Brief

Cranford St and Roosevelt Ave,

Mike Vincent

Million dollar mission to save a

Mike Vincent is Kaikoura’s paua saviour. He

reckons he and about 450 volunteers have

saved paua worth more than $1 million since the

November 14 earthquake. Fraser Walker-Pearce

talks to the 44-year-old about questioning his

science teacher, missing his wife and kids, and

growing up in Aranui

Where are you while we’re

chatting?

We’re in Boat Harbour in the

south of Kaikoura still, we’re

waiting for a road to open so

we can get access to some bays

further to the north, the different

inlets and bays up there. All

the way from Oaro through to

Peketa is the area we’ve been allowed

to relocate paua.

Talk to me about the process

of relocating paua. What does

that entail?

Before I do I’ll explain how to

normally gather paua. You jump

in at low tide and dive for it;

that’s the way to get it legally. But

now because of the earthquake

you can walk out in sand shoes

without getting wet and reach it.

In my whole 30 years of diving

I’ve never been able to go into

a tidal zone and pick up my six

paua without getting wet. There’s

no science in that, it’s just what’s

happened.

So now you’re wading out,

gathering them and dropping

them deeper?

What we do is we go out at

low tide, when there’s a two hour

window either side of that and

we fill buckets with water and the

harvesters go out and grab them,

and the relocaters who are the

experienced divers, go and place

them on rocks, back into the

water basically. The simple way

of saying it is that we’re moving

them from where there was no

water, to where there is water.

How much depth do you

think has been lost from the

earthquake?

It’s hard to put a number on

it, because all I can say is there’s

hundreds of dead paua on the

beaches now. It’s also important

to ask if in the old tidal zone

pre-earthquake was there any

sea-life on the beach? The answer

is no. In the new tidal zone after

the quake would there be any life

POWER COUPLE: Mike Vincent and wife Debra. Mr Vincent

says she is his rock back in Christchurch.

there? And the answer is still no,

because sea creatures can’t live

out of water (laughs).

And so you’ve brought it on

yourself to get them back in the

water?

A diving mate of mine Dylan

Dhue, his wife Hannah and I

phoned each other the day after

the earthquake. When we saw a

photo of a rock full of paua well

above the water line on Facebook,

that’s what made me call

him and I said to him we have to

do something. And that’s when

I posted my first Facebook plea

for help.

And it all went from there?

Pretty much. So now it’s all

volunteers up here who all feel

the same as us – they’ve all

visited or dived here. It’s touched

all of us. Kaikoura has a special

place in all South Islanders’

minds and hearts. Also a big

thank you to the local runanga in

Kaikoura who offered their help

and support for us.

Obviously you can’t save

every single paua out there –

but how many do you think

you’ve relocated back to the

water?

You’re right we can’t save all

of them. But I’d say we’ve put

between 20,000 and 75,000kg of

paua back into the water. But to

give you an idea, we would fill a

20-30L bucket in about a minute,

so we fill thousands of buckets.

To put a money figure on what

we’re doing, it’s about $90 for a

ton of paua, so we would be talking

over a million bucks for this

operation normally. We’ve probably

had about 450 volunteers

over the whole time helping out

too. I want to say a big thank you

to all our wives out there as well

(laughs). We’ve all got families

mate, they’ve been our rocks, so

letting us go away and do this is

awesome.

We’re coming up to

Christmas now, how much

longer do you think you can do

this for?

We’re waiting for a road to

open up towards Peketa so we

can get there. If it doesn’t open

by Sunday though we’ll have to

call it.

Kaikoura natural treasure

When will you be back in

Christchurch?

I would say within the next

week and a half. It’s been adventurous,

but we just want to get

home to support our families.

It will be really awesome for me

to see my wife Debra and my

two young boys Kaydence and

Ezekiel again.

What suburb in Christchurch

are you going back to?

Addington. We’ve been there

for eight years now. It’s our first

house. I haven’t been working

so my wife’s a bit stretched. I’m

in the building industry but I’ve

taken almost a year off to help

with the house.

Do you ask a few of your

builder friends to help with the

house?

Oh hell yes. I’ve got heaps of

friends that have helped out with

the house, people like plasterers,

painters, landscapers, it’s all good

karma that comes around for

them too.

You must have a lot of good

karma with the work you’re doing

at the moment?

Yes, I think I must have a bit

of credit in the bank (laughs).

It’s the love and support of the

New Zealand people, that’s what

allows me to keep going. We’re a

special breed us Kiwis I truly believe

that. I think when you have

a natural disaster it brings people

back together and you get a lot

of good things happening. And

in 20 years time our kids will be

able to come out to Kaikoura and

get paua.

So it’s also about the future

generation for you?

It’s all about my kids and their

kids, to get paua for me, their

father, when I’m too old to get it

myself (laughs). It’s me teaching

them what’s important, conservation

and all that.

What high school did you go

to in Christchurch?

I went to Aranui High School.

I was brought up and lived in

New Brighton and loved surfing

on North Beach, I used to love

to surf. I’m more into my diving

and hunting now. I’d rather run

around the hills and do stuff

like that now, chasing pigs and

deer.

Who did you hang out with at

school?

It was a big community back

then. It’s a lot different now because

of the advances with technology

nowadays. We’d phone

people and actually bike to each

others’ houses and that kind of

thing. It was a small community

and everybody knew everybody.

Are there any schoolmates

you still catch up with?

I still see a lot of the mates, and

because of this work I’m doing

up here a lot have come back

out of the woodwork. That core

group of good friends are still

around. Just a big web of friends

I guess.

Did you have any favourite

subjects at school?

I loved science – I was the

guy that would stand up in class

and got in trouble for it, and

ask about evolution and ask the

teacher why apes aren’t turning

into humans now, that kind of

thing. I loved it because I liked

the challenge of working through

something and asking what’s going

on here.

Were you pretty smart for a

student?

I was an average student, sort

of in-between average and above

average in terms of my brains. I

loved my sport though. I played

representative rugby for Canterbury,

then I went and played

league and then got into diving

at 14 and hunting after that. I

still play presidents rugby league

for the Kaiapoi Bulldogs. I still

throw myself around like I’m 21

to be honest (laughs).

Did you do any tertiary education

after Aranui?

I did a course at polytech for

business management. I think I

got through one year and it got

boring for me. It wasn’t challenging

enough for me and I thought

do I really need a piece of paper

for this? I’m just a worker that

learns a lot by talking to people

and not judging them.

PAPANUI HIGH SCHOOL

NEWSLETTER

Greetings, Tena Koutou Katoa,

Welcome to our final newsletter for 2016. We have

had a very successful year, and our students are

doing incredibly well. Increasingly, students are

experiencing and striving for greater success. We

know that, when students are engaged, they will

make progress, and this has been reflected in their

achievement.

As a school it is our responsibility to provide the

best possible learning for every student, and ensure

we meet their diverse needs. The consolidation

of recent initiatives also ensures sustained and

continuous improvement can happen, and supports

the embedding of good school wide practice.

What strongly complements curriculum success,

is of course the opportunities provided by the

school’s co-curricular programme. Our students

have performed exceptionally well in a full range of

activities, some of which are shown below.

At this time of the year, we need to say farewell to a

number of permanent staff. Mr Thomson is leaving

us to take up the Head of Mathematics position at

Riccarton High School, and Mrs Alison Goodfellow

who has taught in our ESOL department for the last

15 years, is retiring. We thank them for their hard

work and for the many years of service they have

provided to the school and to education in general.

Ms Alana Davis, and Mr Fred Poskitt, were both

awarded 40 years long service awards at our

recent senior prize giving in acknowledgement and

celebration of their dedication, valued service, and

outstanding contribution to our school.

I would like to thank and acknowledge;

• the, Board of Trustees, Parent Teacher

Association, parents, whanau, and the wider

community, for their support and for sharing in the

responsibility of educating our young people,

• the entire staff, who make Papanui High School an

exciting and rewarding place,

and,

• the students, who give us all enormous pleasure

in seeing them achieve the things they do. Our

students grow up to be wonderfully mature young

adults with a strong sense of social responsibility.

For those students who are leaving. Thank you for

being a part of Papanui High School. I hope you

feel well prepared for the next step in your lives,

and that you are moving on to new and exciting

challenges. I wish you all the very best for your

future.

Have a safe and happy holiday period. I look

forward to 2017 in the

knowledge that as a school and a community

we will continue to work together to provide our

students an education that is supportive, caring,

and developed in a ‘forward thinking’ way.

it could be repainted with

a mural showing the foul clouds

of toxic smoke from the wrecked

Deep Sea Horizon oil rig, the

oil drenched coast of the Gulf of

In the meantime, boycott BP.

David Dixon: Good to have

a chance to comment on the

BP/Edgeware issue. We have

followed your regular features

and frankly the behaviour of the

corporate is appalling.

The whole concept of them enlarging

in such a congested area

with kindergarten, housing , the

supermarket, a busy Postshop,

all the other shops and a very

busy intersection is inane and

should never have been allowed

to go ahead.

I felt so much for the neighbours

Mr Mountford reached was

MATT DOOCEY

MP FOR WAIMAKARIRI

CHAT WITH MATT

Like many families, I was rocked

awake by the November earthquake.

The event was a sober reminder for

Canterbury of what our community

has gone through.

I was out and about after the

earthquake to check up on residents

and to be briefed on how our area

had fared. I heard some great stories

about night-shift workers who came

out to check on evacuees parked in

the parking lots of our supermarkets

and offered support and food.

The work undertaken by our

councils and private building

owners in upgrading our buildings

to increase our ability to cope

with earthquake events resulted

in relatively little damage to our

buildings or infrastructure. This

allowed us to be able to support

Hurunui and Kaikōura, and I spoke

in Parliament’s General Debate

Funded by Parliamentary Service and authorised by

Matt Doocey MP, 130A Percival St, Rangiora.

about how we are supporting our

neighbours in North Canterbury. The

earthquakes are going to require

a number of legislative measures

to facilitate recovery and I sat in

Parliament under Urgency hearing

the submissions on the Hurunui and

Kaikōura Earthquakes Emergency

Relief Bill.

It’s another reminder to look out for

each other and to check with family

and friends to see they are getting

the support they need. I’m getting

great feedback on my new Belfast

office, with constituents reporting

they appreciate the shorter travel

time to meet with me, so if you need

help or know someone who needs

help, please get in touch.

From my family to yours, I wish you a

Merry Christmas and a peaceful new

year.

DONATION: Papanui Rotary Club president John Allen (left) hands

Christchurch Charity Hospital chief executive Carl Shaw a cheque for $6440.

Hospital trust

gets $6440

Rotary cheque

THE ROTARY Club

of Papanui recently

presented a cheque for

$6440 to the Canterbury

Charity Hospital Trust.

It was a share of the

profits from club’s

successful trailer raffle,

which was organised in

October in partnership

with Papanui Mega Mitre

10.

Club president John

Allen presented the

cheque to Carl Shaw, chief

executive and hospital

manager, who said the

contribution would

help fund more dental

equipment.

Mr Allen acknowledged

the work CCHT delivers

to people who require

surgery, dentistry or

counselling but do not

meet the threshold for

treatment in the public

health system and do not

have the means to fund it

for themselves.

So far this year, CCHT

has undertaken more than

400 procedures for those

who would otherwise be

unable to access the care

they need.

The presentation took

place in the recovery ward

where several reclining

chairs, previously donated

by Rotary, are located.

The trust has purchased

a further neighbouring

property which is

being converted into a

counselling suite and

a community meeting

room.

Boys’ High take national title

LAWyerS

• By Gordon Findlater

FRASER SHEAT has joined

the likes of previous winner

Black Caps captain Kane

Williamson after taking

out the MVP award at last

week’s Secondary School

Boys’ First XI Cup.

The 18-year-old right

arm pace bowler led all

players with 11 wickets for

Christchurch Boys’ High

School at the week-long

tournament at Lincoln

University, as his side captured

the title with a perfect

record of five wins from as

many games.

Sheat was understandably

overjoyed to win the tournament

MVP award.

History tends to suggest

those that win MVP are

destined for bigger things.

Williamson and fellow

Black Cap Adam Milne are

just two names to win the

award over the last decade.

“I didn’t expect the award

at all. I can’t really see myself

up there with those sort

of guys. It’s pretty special

to get the award and I’m

just stoked for the boys that

we could get the win,” said

Sheat.

The CBHS first XI not

only went unbeaten at

the tournament, but have

remained unbeaten in all

competitions this year.

“The boys have worked so

hard throughout the year.

They just keep working and

working and this was their

end goal. And to do it without

losing one is an amazing

effort from them,” said

CBHS coach Mark Lane.

The most memorable win

during last week’s tournament

came on Wednesday

against Auckland’s St Kentigern

College which finished

runners-up.

Batting first, CBHS scored

243 from 50 overs. St Kentigern

got off to a great start

in reply and were cruising at

184/4 in the 27th over.

Three quick wickets fell

before they stabilised to be

238/7, requiring just six runs

from the final four overs.

However, CBHS put in a

spirited bowling effort to

take the final three St Kentigern

wickets for just three

runs and win the match by

two runs.

CBHS have now won the

cup three times over the

past four years.

MVP: Fraser Sheat

took 11 wickets at the

Secondary School Boys’

First XI Cup last week to

win the MVP award. ​

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | DECEMBER 2016

The year ahead

A message from outgoing EQC chief executive

Ian Simpson

The Kaikoura Earthquake has been an unwelcome

reminder of the sheer power and unpredictability

of geological forces and of New Zealand’s

vulnerability to these.

The earthquake has also highlighted yet again

the resilience of New Zealanders in the face of

natural disaster.

At EQC, it’s also reminded us that every natural

disaster affects communities in different ways. So

while we have learned a number of lessons from

Canterbury 2010-2011, our response to the

Kaikoura Earthquakes will be different.

One of the key things we learned from

Canterbury is that we should have put more

time early on into building relationships with

customers, community groups, local

Don’t wait to hear from

EQC – lodge your claim

Most people seen by EQC in the first

weeks since the Kaikoura

Earthquake of 14 November have

wanted help lodging their claims

and advice on how to get emergency

repairs underway to get them back

into their homes.

EQC Customer and Claims General

Manager Trish Keith says that having

organised three teams on rotation into

the most impacted areas of Ward, Waiau

and Kaikoura to help lodge claims,

provide information and answer

EQC-related questions, EQC is being

kept up to date on customer needs.

“One of the lessons out of Canterbury

was that people wanted information

and the opportunity to talk to someone

about their issues as soon as they could

after an event, so we have ensured that

our response to Kaikoura includes

personal contact,” Mrs Keith says.

“The teams have been dealing with

hundreds of customers one-on-one.

Many people have been asking EQC

when someone from EQC will visit

them, so they will know what to do

next. My advice is that they go ahead

and lodge the claim first. Don’t wait for

anyone to visit.

“Go ahead and lodge your claim to

ensure you are in the system, and any

earthquake damage found later can be

added. If you fail to lodge a claim

before 14 February 2017, we won’t be

able to help you so best to lodge the

government, and government agencies

and insurers.

We are heeding that lesson as we plan our

response to Kaikoura. We’ve had staff on the

ground in Kaikoura, Ward and Waiau to help

customers lodge their claims and answer EQC

related questions. The information our people

are picking up from those areas is being fed back

into our planning.

The work we are doing now will mean that in

2017 we will be putting in place the team we

need to deliver a response tailored to the needs

of customers impacted by the Kaikoura

Earthquake. This team will be part of the new

structure we have developed to also carry on the

remaining work in Canterbury in 2017.

While we are working very hard on responding to

Kaikoura, we also know we have to keep focussed

on resolving the final Canterbury claims.

I’m stepping down as EQC’s chief executive at

the end of this year. I want to thank people of

claim,” Mrs Keith says.

The next steps about claim assessment

and settlement are still the subject of

ongoing negotiations with private

insurers. EQC is confident it will have

news on this soon.

EQC has been prioritising the

vulnerable and the most damaged

homes for visits, as needed.

All EQC teams are working out of

Recovery Assistance Centres set up by

Canterbury Civil Defence Emergency

Management in Ward, Waiau and

Kaikoura so Government agencies and

non-government agencies could deliver

consistently across areas of need.

If you have any questions about

your existing claim or want to lodge

a new claim:

• Visit www.eqc.govt.nz/claims

• Email info@eqc.govt.nz

• Phone 0800 DAMAGE (326 243)

The EQC call centre is open 7am to

9pm Monday to Friday, and 8am to

6pm on Saturdays.

To prepare for making a claim,

remember to have on hand:

• Information about what damage

occurred

• Photographs showing the damage

and any urgent work that was done

• Your insurance policy number and

name of your insurance company.

Courtesy of NZ Fire Service

Canterbury for the support we have received,

and at times for your patience. I acknowledge we

didn’t always get everything right but we have

learned from that. I also want to acknowledge the

EQC staff who worked very hard to support the

Canterbury recovery.

Looking ahead, it’s clear 2017 will be another

year of challenges. I’m confident that EQC will

rise to meet those challenges.

2017 changes

From later this month, EQC will be the main point of

contact for all customer enquiries relating to Canterbury

Home Repair Programme (CHRP) repairs.

Until now, customers have dealt with EQC and/or Fletcher EQR

– depending on what stage their repairs have been at. But, from

16 December, EQC’s 0800 number (0800 326 243) will be the

main number for all customers – including those whose

properties are in the current sub-floor review, who will be

transferred to the Fletcher EQR staff focussing on that work.

No delays are intended or anticipated, but personnel changes

due to the completion of about 68,400 first-time CHRP repairs

may mean some customers will have a different contact person

at EQC or EQR in 2017.

EQC’s General Manager Customer and Claims Trish Keith says

these customers will be advised of any changes and provided

with new contact details.

“We don’t want customers who currently have a contact

person at EQC or EQR calling us and only then finding out that

someone else is looking after their claim.”

She says any changes will be limited to EQC and EQR

personnel, and repair work will be carried out by contractors

that have already worked for the home repair programme and

are familiar with EQC’s systems and quality expectations.

Most CHRP contractors will finish work for the year on

23 December and resume work from 9 January.

EQC’s Contact Centre hours will be:

• Friday 23 December: 7am-5pm

• Saturday 24 December – Tuesday 27 December: CLOSED

• Wednesday 28 December – Friday 30 December: 8am-5pm

• Saturday 31 December – Tuesday 3 January: CLOSED

• Normal hours will resume on Wednesday 4 January

(7am-9pm Monday-Friday; 8am-6pm Saturday)

questions and talk about claims at the following Recovery

Assistance Centres.

Positive

response to

February 2016

settlement

process

90 percent of claims from the February 2016

earthquakes have been settled.

EQC’s February 2016 Event Response Manager,

Jayne Lapin, says of the 13,879 claims received for the

14 and 29 February earthquakes and subsequent

aftershocks, EQC has resolved 12,440 (90 percent)

by cash settlement worth a total value of $46,039,854

“Customers have appreciated the approach we have

developed and implemented in response to the

February earthquakes.”

The new approach uses both on-site and phonebased

assessments, and allows customers to influence

the pace of settlement by giving them the opportunity

to provide earthquake damage data and

photographic evidence.

Thanks to a robust period of planning in advance and

with customers providing information up front, claims

have taken an average of three weeks to reach

settlement from assessment.

Customers who have been through the process have

been surveyed and nearly 90 percent of those who have

taken part have been positive about their experience.

Ms Lapin says EQC had hoped to resolve all February

2016 claims by the end of the year but it has suited

some customers to defer their assessment to 2017,

meaning a small number remain open and will be

closed early next year.

Land settlements

update

Almost all land claims will be resolved by the end

of the year but there will be some customers who

will get their settlement in 2017.

At the end of December 2016, out of a total of

approximately 73,000 green zone properties we

expect to have resolved 97% of them. This means we

have either made payments to customers or advised

them that they don’t qualify for the types of land

damage known as Increased Flooding Vulnerability

(IFV) and/or Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV).

“We’ve been working to get an answer to all land

customers waiting to hear from us this year. While we

have worked hard to ensure that customers have

received their land settlement, we are conscious that

some are still waiting”, says EQC’s Head of Customer

and Claims Trish Keith.

“These are the last of the most complex claims that

we need to settle and we will do our best to continue

to deliver robust settlements which can give

homeowners confidence that all properties have been

assessed fairly and consistently”, says Mrs Keith.

“Looking back on the year, we would also like the

opportunity to thank all land customers, community

groups and many other stakeholders, who are also

supporting our customers, for their patience and

understanding as well as taking the time to come to

our community meetings on land settlements or

hosting us and providing us with their feedback”,

concludes Mrs Keith.

The EQC website remains a good source of

information for land customers who want to find out

more about IFV and ILV land damage, which are a

world-first. Please visit www.eqc.govt.nz/IFV or www.

eqc.govt.nz/ILV.

FLAME FILES

KIDSTUFF

Don’t leave clothes in the

dryer while you’re not home

Fire risk management

officer Mark Thomas

talks about call outs

in the lead up to

Christmas and a new

call out to a fire in an

ice cream truck

Another week and

another series of car

crashes in Christchurch.

Twenty-one attended by

Fire Service troops in the

past seven days.

Lately, these seem to be

increasing quite alarmingly.

It might be the time

of year, it might be something

to do with drink

driving, but whatever it

is a car crash just now is

pretty much guaranteed to

result in a less than merry

Christmas.

For goodness sake watch

where you’re driving,

watch other traffic and pedestrians

and don’t speed.

You’ve heard the term

‘fire and ice’. ‘Fire and ice

cream’ doesn’t have the

same ring about it does it?

Every now and then

comes an incident that

is new, even to long-time

firefighters. A recently

opened service station in

Harewood had a fire in

an ice cream machine last

Thursday.

It didn’t come to much

and was shut down by staff

with firefighters just ensuring

no fire spread with a

thermal imaging camera.

I’ve mentioned this

THE PLAYHOUSE CHALLENGE

before but leaving the

house with a clothes dryer

just started is not recommended.

We’ve all done it,

many of us not even thinking

about the possibilities.

Mostly nothing will happen

other than the clothes

being dry when you come

home. But occasionally,

as in Malabar Cres,

Broomfield, last Friday, a

family will come home to a

destroyed home.

By being there while the

appliance is operating,

you increase your chance

of cutting off a fire or at

least having us on the way

earlier.

And every second saved

means so much more of

your stuff saved.

Tenants Protection Association (TPA) Christchurch, Birthright Canterbury, and

Star Media are proud to present Canterbury’s first ever ‘Playhouse Challenge.’

The competition will see some of our top architects and building teams compete

against each other to build Canterbury’s best playhouse and receive an award for

‘Best Architectural Playhouse’ or the ‘People’s Choice’.

The best five playhouses will be judged by an expert panel and members of the

public attending the 2017 Star Home & Leisure Show. The playhouses will be on

display at the Show from 30 June until 2 July, where they will also be auctioned.

Proceeds from the auction will be shared between TPA and Birthright Canterbury

to support their ongoing work in the community.

Send in Your Expression of Interest

If you think you are up for the challenge of building

Canterbury’s best playhouse, please submit an

Expression of Interest by 5pm on 22 December.

Visit birthrightchch.org.nz or tpa.org.nz

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to

contact Di Harwood at TPA on (03) 379-2297.

No job too small at

this repair business

Scratch on the bumper? Dent in the door?

Damage like this can happen so easily – in

supermarket car parks, for example. And

the place to get minor damage quickly and

professionally repaired is SMART Repairs

in Lichfield Street.

SMART (Small to Medium Automotive

Repair Techniques) Repairs provides a topquality

service with a quick turnaround

– vehicles are usually in and out within a

couple of days.

SMART Repairs is owned and operated

by Brian and Maxine Caffell, who bought

their first panelbeating business in 1993.

Brian has a total of 31 years’ experience in

the trade, so customers can be confident

they will get a first-class job.

Services include paintless dent removal,

or PDR, and while a large percentage of

their work is non-insurance, they also

provide insurance quotes and carry out

those repairs quickly and efficiently.

To keep their customers on the road while

their vehicle is in the workshop, SMART

Repairs recently acquired a courtesy car,

and this has already proven to be a great

help for people, Maxine says. They also offer

a pick-up and delivery service if required.

As a small, friendly operation, SMART

Repairs specialises in small to medium

repair work, with no job too small, Maxine

says. Their aim is to provide personalised

service, and make it easy for customers

unsure what to do if their vehicle is

damaged.

“We take pride in our work and ensure

that our customers are happy with the

results.”

Festive Season Survival Tips

Healthy snacks are always popular

Christmas is a time for celebration,

spending time with friends and

family and enjoying festive foods

and drinks. Nutrition-wise, this

festive fare can be a challenge.

Here are some simple tips to help you

survive the festivities:

• Don’t try to lose weight over the festive

season. With parties, families and all the

special foods that go with Christmas, it’s

going to be just about impossible! Your

main aim should be to maintain your

weight (using some of the tips below!)

• Eat regular meals. If you skip meals you

are more likely to fill up on high fat snacks.

It only takes a few of these snacks to add

up to more calories than your usual meal.

• Avoid going to a function hungry, you

can easily eat a lot of party food in a short

time. Have a small snack beforehand like a

bowl of cereal, yoghurt or a sandwich are

quick and will help fill you up. It will also

help if you are well hydrated, so try drinking

a few glasses of water before you arrive.

• Deep fried foods, crumbed and battered

foods, cheese platter and nuts are all high in

fat. Choose fruit, vegetable or bread based

snacks.

• If you are hosting the party, offer your

guests a range of healthy snacks. Always

popular are hummus or salsa dips with

vegetable sticks.

• If you are taking a plate, make yours a

healthy option. How about a platter of fruit

currently in season?

• Listen to your body and stop eating

when you feel full.

• Just say ‘No” to food – mentally

Be aware of how much you are actually drinking

practice strategies to decline food offers. For

example: “It looks amazing but I am full” or

“I tried it and it was great”.

• Chat and mingle. If you are bored at a

party you’re more likely to hover around the

food table or seek out the serving platter. A

good conversation can distract you from the

food. Avoid standing right beside the food

table or bar while you’re talking.

• Consider your drinks, they can add to

the calorie count very quickly. Try diluting

your alcoholic drinks, such as a spritzer

(½ wine, ½ soda). If you prefer spirits,

try a diet mixer. Lite beers are lower in

calories and alcohol. Remember soft drinks,

juices, punches, tonic water and flavoured

mineral water can all have similar calories

to alcoholic drinks.

•Be aware of how much you are actually

drinking. Alternate alcoholic drinks with

glasses of water and non-alcoholic choices.

• Keep Active. Join in the Christmas

backyard cricket game or go for a walk

with friends or relatives. Remember you’re

aiming for 30 minutes of physical activity

each day.

• If your regular exercise class stops over

the Christmas break, plan other types of

exercise - organise your friends and put a

date in your diary.

If you do really overdo the festive foods

or drinks, take a deep breath and start the

next day afresh with healthy foods and some

exercise. No fasting - just sensible eating.

Remember, a few parties don’t make you

overweight, it’s what you do all the other

days of the year which count.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Arthritis &

back pain

to rest or keep moving?

With arthritis and back pain 30 years ago

the advice was to rest. But research has

shown that inactivity only makes things

worse.

Move, move, move is always the advice

for arthritis. Staying in bed with back pain

often results in greater difficulty moving

and may prolong the pain. Better to stay

active, garden or walk to the shops.

A pain killer may enable you to continue

normal activities. Any movement, no

matter how small, helps relieve pain. Start

gently with something you enjoy.

There’s no quick fix for back pain but

you need to keep moving. You can keep

your legs and lower back moving with an

Aircycle circulation booster while you sit.

By working your legs, your core muscles

which help support your back, also work

and strengthen. Lower back pain and

sciatica, aching legs and joints are often

relieved this way.

So move – even while you sit. The

Aircycle “pedal” exercise enables this. And

don’t forget to laugh occasionally. That

massages your internal organs and helps

you relax.

Back pain however, has many and varied

causes. Never neglect seeking medical

advice.

Aircycle information and orders:

www.aircycle.co.nz or 0800 14 14 15. Also

Effective

natural skincare

that is ideal for

problem skin

MooGoo produce a full range

of safe, natural skin and scalp

products that are especially

suited for those with problem

skin. In these products they

only use top quality edible

ingredients that are known to

be highly effective and good

for our skin. These active

ingredients are only used in

correct concentrations for

effective results and not just

added to look good on the

label. Because the MooGoo

range is so safe and yet so

effective is probably why it

was rated the number one

most preferred brand of nonprescription

(non-steroid)

creams for those suffering from

problem skin in Australia.

It is also recommended by

many medical practitioners in

Australia.

As MooGoo products are

safe and natural they are ideal

for long term use from babies

to adults. They are an effective

alternative or follow-up

treatment to chemically-based

ointments.

Collagen

the body’s youth protein

Collagen is the primary

protein in the body. It is a major

component of skin, hair, nails,

muscles, tendons, ligaments,

joint cartilage, bones, gums,

teeth, eyes, and blood vessels.

In fact collagen is the primary

structural component for all

tissue in the body, providing

the strength and resilience

associated with youth, beauty

and wellness. The body’s natural

collagen production decreases

with age resulting in many signs

of aging, such as flaccid skin,

wrinkles, ligament and tendon

injuries and aching joints.

Collagen supplementation is

one of the most fundamental

things a person can do to

prevent premature aging and

promote youthful vitality.

NEOCELL are the industry

leaders in research on collagen

supplementation. Through

advanced research they have

perfected a way to hydrolyse

collagen and effectively reduce

its molecular weight this

improving the absorption of

collagen into the blood stream

by over 90%.

A clinical study on

NEOCELL COLLAGEN

has shown skin hydration to

increase an average of 21%

and up to 50%, with 92% of

test subjects experiencing

firmer, softer skin. Most

people taking NEOCELL

COLLAGEN reported seeing

visible improvements within

two weeks.

Collagen supplementation

provides the nutrients necessary

to support the body’s collagen

supply. It can help reduce fine

lines and wrinkles and improve

skin elasticity, support building

of strong bones and teeth,

strengthen the nails and hair,

and is vital for muscle growth,

It also assists weight loss by

helping burn fat for energy,

promotes wound healing by

supporting the regeneration of

healthy tissue as well as help

support overall health.
