BP does the good thing

Trees will cover up

eyesore; stop glare

FINALLY a good result for the

little guy in society.

After a campaign by Nor’West

News and The Star and intervention

from Mayor Lianne Dalziel,

BP has planted trees to minimise

the eyesore it has left St Albans

resident Kazu Kano

and his family with.

Mr Kano (left) now

has an almost 5mhigh,

20m-long back

end of the new BP

Edgeware shop along his boundary,

badly reflecting light off the

walls onto his windows, as well

as towering over his backyard.

Residents had opposed the BP

expansion.

But resource consent was

granted on the basis that the

impact on residents would be

minimal – how that could have

been determined beggars belief.

The residents who opposed

the application had no chance of

winning. They were completely

overpowered by BP’s suite of

experts and lawyers.

The residents didn’t have that

kind of a war chest to hire experts

to fight an even battle.

And, when BP initially said it

would only comply with landscaping

as per the resource consent,

that was another big blow.

But now the oil giant has

changed its tune, and today we

show readers the outcome – see

photos on the page.

Last week, 3.5m magnolia

grandiflora Blanchards were

planted. They will grow to twice

that size.

They are mixed with

pittosporum tenuifolium, which

will be maintained at 3.5m in

height.

Mr Kano is thrilled.

“You moved mountains.

Thank you very much for your

sympathy,” Mr Kano said of

Nor’West News and The Star.

He was also grateful to Ms

Dalziel for her intervention.

Said Star Media (publisher

of Nor’West News and The

Star) editor in chief Barry

Clarke: “This has been a good

outcome. But the problem could

have been avoided with some

commonsense.

“BP deserves credit for

changing its stance, and also

Lianne Dalziel for taking up the

issue when others didn’t.

“It also shows that the resource

consent process needs to be

addressed so society’s little guys

like Mr Kano and the other

residents at least have an equal

chance of stating their cases.”

RELIEF: The trees that will eventually cover the back end of the Edgeware BP shop which runs

along Kazu Kano’s boundary. Below: What they look like from his side, and right, the new BP

shop.

EDITOR’S

DESK News................................3, 5, 9

GREAT NEWS for Kazu Kano

and his family today (see page 1).

BP has planted shrubs and trees

that should negate the glare and

eyesore he would have been left

with as the result of the oil giant’s

Edgeware expansion.

Nor’West News and The Star

have fought hard to get a good

outcome for the Kanos.

So it’s been very gratifying the

family has some good news. But

as I say on our front page today

commonsense should have prevailed

in the first place.

I suspect someone up the BP

ladder had to make a call or continue

to face the adverse publicity

they were deservedly getting.

So while it took a while, a

bouquet for BP for finally seeing

sense.

Why they were granted resource

consent in the first place is

another matter all together.

Sex worker fix long way off

• By Andrew King

THE PROBLEM of sex workers

in a St Albans neighbourhood

may not be solved for some

time.

Residents, police and city

council staff met last month

to discuss what can be done

to move prostitutes off the

residential end of Manchester St

to a more appropriate spot away

from homes.

Two security cameras were

installed by the city council in

July on the corner of Purchas

and Manchester Sts to deter

customers and document

antisocial behaviour.

However, residents say they

have failed, as more often than

not there is a sex worker on

every corner under the cameras’

watch.

City council head of strategic

policy Helen Beaumont said it

will consider what amendments

can be made to the Public

Places Bylaw – including the

possibility of controlling streetbased

sex workers.

A review is scheduled for next

year.

She said amendments had

been considered in the past.

“The concern here is around

establishing a legally valid bylaw

FAILURE: Two city council-installed cameras have failed to deter sex workers in a residential

area. (Inset) More often than not they stand under the cameras while waiting for customers. ​

clause that would withstand

appeal and enable effective

enforcement,” she said.

Resident Matt Bonis said it

was time the police and city

council acknowledged the

problem and started to do

something about it.

“We [the residents] have been

terrified about the situation for

more than five years, but that

is now starting to lift with this

progress,” he said.

Solicitor and Labour

candidate for Christchurch

Central, Duncan Webb, was

hired by Mr Bonis to represent

the residents.

“He has helped us cut through

some of the red tape and get our

point across,” Mr Bonis said.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board chairwoman Ali Jones

has been working with the

city council and residents for

a number of years to find a

solution to the issue and said it

was fantastic news to hear there

could be progress.

“The big question now is why

it has taken so long to come to

this solution. That is what I will

be asking,” she said.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Should

sex workers be allowed to

operate in residential areas?

SHOPPING SPREE WINNERS

The winners of Shop Scan & Win

will each receive a $1000 shopping

spree at participating retailers.

The winners are: Marlene

Dobson, who shopped at Pataka,

Gordon Milne (Quick Stop

Liquor) and Ben Cloake (Sushi

Lane).

CYCLEWAY APPROVED

The Northern Line Cycleway was

approved by the major cycleway

routes committee last week so

construction can start next year.

The decision follows community

feedback on the routes. It is one

of 13 major cycleways to be built

over the next seven years. Construction

is already under way on

Papanui Parallel.

NO-PASSING LINES

Traffic issues on Blighs Rd are

being looked at by the Papanui-

Innes Community Board, which

resolved to paint a no-passing

line from 181 Blighs Rd to the

intersection with Papanui Rd. It

has also asked for a video audit of

the road approaching Papanui Rd

before Christmas and in February

when schools’ return. Residents

have complained in the past to

the board about the build up of

traffic and vehicles crossing the

centre line to avoid other vehicles

turning left onto Papanui Rd.

Caring for TurTles

Foot injury needing veterinary attention.

Turtle Facts:

Turtles are not your average pets. They

are fascinating creatures that aren’t

particularly complicated to care for as

long as you invest a little time and have

the right equipment, you can enjoy them

for a possible 25 to 40 years!

Pet turtles in NZ are usually red-eared

sliders or snake necks. Turtles are cold

blooded so regulate their temperature

from their environment, moving between

sunning area and the layers of warm and

cool water.

Turtles have hard shells made up of

around 60 bones covered by plates called

scutes. Scutes are shed once or twice

a year and can be easily scratched by

minor trauma or softened by prolonged

immersion in warm water. When they

bask in the sun, their scutes dry and firm

back up.

The shell is part of its skeleton which is

attached to the spine and the rib cage

so they can’t crawl out of it. They can feel

pressure and pain through their shells,

just as you can feel pressure through your

fingernails.

Enviroment

Turtles can grow to be 13-28cm in

length so they will need a relatively large

enclosure. An outdoor enclosure is the

best place for your turtles – one with

water to swim, rocks to sunbathe on and

some shelter under which to keep cool.

If you are going to keep your turtle in an

aquarium, it is very important to keep

it clean. Turtles are messy eaters so the

water needs to be changed regularly &

good filter is essential.

Plenty of natural light is good, but they

also need special UV bulbs and a

heat lamp. A full spectrum UVA/

UVB reptile light is necessary for

the production of calcium and

maintenance of the hardness of

their shells. The ideal temperature

in an aquarium should be carefully

monitored and in the correct range.

Gravel is not necessary, and very

small gravel can be ingested by your

turtle and this can cause blockage

problems. Use stones that are large

enough not to be swallowed or river

rocks.

www.mcmasterheap.co.nz

Diet

A healthy, balanced diet for turtles consists

of a wide variety of foods, from snails to

alfalfa. Red-eared turtles are omnivores,

eating mostly meat when young and

becoming vegetarian as they age and

need less protein. Juveniles turtles (up to

1yr old) should be fed twice a day and

adults every second day. They can only

feed in water.

Turtles like to eat worms, snails, insects,

fish and boiled chicken. The plants they

prefer include most varieties found in

tropical fish tanks, plus lettuce, cabbage,

alfalfa, and berries. Turtle food bought

from a pet shop contains essential

vitamins and minerals including calcium,

which is needed for the development of

the shell. A poor diet results in a soft shell

and a lethargic pet.

Do not feed - Red meat or processed

meat. Cat or dog food, avocado, spinach,

silverbeet, peas, corn, cauliflower,

cabbage, broccoli, fruits, raw chicken,

rhubarb, beetroot, tomato, celery

Turtle Problems

If your Turtle has the correct diet and

environment it is unlikely to get ill or have

problems but there are a few things to

look out for.

These include: Soft shell syndrome

(Metabolic Bone Disease): a result of poor

diet and/or insufficient lighting. Fungal

infections: a cotton-like layer on the shell,

eyes or mouth. Respiratory infections:

Wheezing, lethargy, a runny nose and loss

of appetite, all due to an environment that

is too cold.

If you see any of these symptoms in your

pet, make sure you take them to us for

assessment and treatment.

I really enjoy looking after the turtles that

come through our vet clinic. They are

beautiful, amazing and resilient creatures.

There is never a dull moment at work and

you never know what creatures we will

treat next!

Children are excited

as they receive gifts and

we use the time to get together

as families and with

friends to celebrate.

For some people, this

time of year also has great

religious significance as we

recall the birth of Jesus.

Whatever our belief, it is

a time to get together with

those we love and enjoy

ourselves.

Not everyone has good

reason to celebrate.

For some people, Christmas

reminds them of happier

days long gone.

had not suffered

Liquor store opposition grows

Petition

launched to

stop licence

application

• By Andrew King

CAMPAIGNERS against the

proposed Trafford St liquor

store want their strategy to be

a blueprint for stopping other

booze outlets across the city.

Samarth Rajeshkumar

Limbachiya has applied for a

liquor licence in the Harewood

street, which has been met

with big opposition from

residents and community board

members.

More than 1100 people have

signed a petition to stop the

liquor store.

Petition co-organiser Bruce

Tulloch said he believed the

community response would be

the same in other residential

areas.

“It will not just be our

neighbourhood that doesn’t

want another liquor store,” Mr

Tulloch said.

Fendalton-Waimairi-

TAKING A STAND: Bruce Tulloch (left) and Colin Fussell say their community is the same as

many others throughout the city and adding alcohol into the mix is a bad idea.

Harewood Community Board

member Linda Chen will attend

the licence hearing, thought to

be scheduled for late January,

to represent the community’s

view.

“The residents approached

me to help and I stuck my hand

up when the board wanted a

representative,” she said.

Mrs Chen, who lives in the

area, said it was great to see a

community standing up for

what it wants.

“It’s not about who is right

and who is wrong, it is about

what is best for the community,”

she said.

Mr Tulloch said the location

was unsuitable and would

attract an unwanted element.

He said there were plenty of

options around for buying

alcohol.

“They are making a profit

from public harm and it has to

stop,” he said.

Colin Fussell has lived in the

area for more than 30 years and

is no stranger to getting behind

a community cause.

He collected more than

12,000 signatures himself in the

mid-1950s to stop the level of

Lake Manapouri in Fiordland

National Park from rising for

power generation.

“You have to be brave to

stick your neck out . . . but it is

important to set a precedent

and reduce antisocial behaviour

in residential areas,” he said.

City council regulatory

compliance head Tracey Weston

said, so far, 38 public objections

had been submitted, as well as

the petition against the licence

application.

New site for

toy library

• By Andrew King

MORE SPACE, a front lawn and

cows nearby to entertain the

children – Papanui Toy Library

believes it has relocated to an almost

perfect spot.

The well-used library was facing

a bleak future after news that its

premises at 472 Cranford St was to

be demolished by the end of the year

due to earthquake damage.

But it has now moved into its new

home at 185 Cavendish Rd, a place

which ticks nearly all the boxes, according

to secretary Natalie Sisson.

“It is almost the perfect place. (It)

could be a bit bigger – with the 1000

plus toys we have, we need a lot of

room,” she said.

Even with the move, Ms Sisson

said people are still coming through

the door and remarking about how

lucky they are.

“There is a big grass area out the

front, some cows that the kids love

and diggers over the fence. [The

children] love it,” she said.

The service is used by about 100

members and has been in operation

since 1993. It is open to parents

Wednesday evening and Saturday

morning. The library is planning

an open day on February 25 to let

people know they have moved into

the neighbourhood.

Tasman Gillies

Environmentalist follows in the

Tasman Gillies, 27 of Ngāi Tahu (Ngāti Wheke), is a third

generation tāngata tiaki and guardian of Lyttelton Harbour.

Annabelle Dick talked to him about his work and how he

almost followed a completely different career path

You work for Ngāi Tahu, can

you tell me about what you do?

I’m an environmental advisor

– mahinga kai monitoring and

enhancement for Ngāi Tahu.

You’re also tāngata tiaki –

what does that mean and what

do you do in that role?

Tāngata tiaki are guardians

responsible for managing fisheries

resources. In regards to

my role as tāngata tiaki, it’s an

ongoing thing. It’s the legislative

side so it’s a ministerial appointment.

Effectively we manage

the mātaitai (an identified

traditional fishing ground with

special status) and issue customary

fishing permits for the ngāti

wheke area. In the harbour, ngāti

wheke is a representative on the

Whakaraupo/Lyttelton Catchment

Management Plan so I’m

the science advisor for that.

You’re a third generation

tāngata tiaki, can you tell me

about your family and their

involvement?

My pōua was involved in

the establishment of the first

mataitai reserve at Rapaki. The

whole purpose is a recognition

of rangatiratanga and the

relationship with the traditional

fishing grounds and customary

fishing management within the

mataitai. They were made the

first ever tāngata tiaki.

Did having the family connection

prompt you to follow it

as a career?

It definitely influenced it, but I

didn’t go to university intending

to study it or come out involved

in this area. My Dad’s a GP so

I went down to study medicine

and in the first year I knew it

wasn’t for me. I’m not sure if I

would’ve got into my second

year, but regardless, I didn’t want

to do it. Funnily enough, I told

my dad and he laughed and said

“good, because I didn’t think

you wanted to do it, but I didn’t

want to influence your decision.”

I laugh at that because I could’ve

saved myself a year but, at the

same time, I had to realise it.

I changed course and ended

up gravitating towards marine

science and work associated with

mahinga kai.

Did you learn a lot about your

family in the process?

Yes. You start to run into

people that used to know my

pōua and talk to them. The

people I work with now at Ngāi

Tahu worked with him when

he was alive and, being an iwi,

some of them are related to him

as well so you hear stories. You

definitely learn the technical

things like dates and specific

legislative parts and what

mātaitai is and taiapure.

Considering the involvement

your pōua had, do you feel any

pressure to live up to his name?

Not at all – if anything it’s

more understanding about what

he wanted. The process that him

and Henry Couch were involved

with, and what they did to get

the mātaitai in place, it was a

lengthy process. For me, it’s

about understanding what he

wanted to achieve because Ngāi

Tahu always uses the saying

“Mō tātou, ā, mō kā uri, ā muri

ake ne,” which means “for us

and our children after us.” It’s a

pretty straightforward concept.

Knowing my pōua was involved

in that whole process, and being

third generation tāngata tiaki, it’s

quite a literal thing for me. In his

mind, he wanted to sustain the

fisheries and have management

over it so our generation could

too. It comes back to the concept

of kaitiakitanga, or kaitiaki,

which means guardianship

or stewardship over the

environment. Ngāti Wheke

is my hapu, so that’s Rāpaki.

Our area is Lyttelton Harbour

or Whakaraupo and because

I whakapapa back to there,

kaitiaki or guardianship is also

a responsibility – so our world

view is we have a responsibility

to take care of it as well.

footsteps of his ancestors

HOME: Tasman Gillies is at home in the harbour.

Being tāngata tiaki is not so

much about continuing his

legacy – it’s more what I should

be doing anyway. The kaitiaki

concept isn’t exclusive to Maori,

I think people should have a responsibility

towards the environment

and take care of it because

we’re being trusted to take care

of it while we’re here for future

generations.

Did you grow up at Rāpaki?

We moved to Rāpaki when I

was nine. I was born in Australia

and lived in a little town called

Alstonville near Byron Bay. Both

of my parents are Kiwi and I

have two older sisters. We kind

of grew up in the bush – we

lived in a big valley and the next

neighbour was a kilometre away

so we had all the room to play

around but we had to be careful

because it was Aussie. We knew

we were Maori but, in Australia,

we were absent from the culture

in a sense. When I moved here, it

was a big learning curve. I think

that was why our parents wanted

us to move back to see those

things.

What does your family do?

My mum and dad still live

in Rāpaki – he’s a doctor. My

sister works for the Ministry of

Education, but she was previously

a Maori teacher at Lincoln

High School. My other sister is a

dentist in Masterton.

What was it like moving to

Rāpaki?

It was a shock initially. You

can know you’re Maori but then

someone goes “oh you’re Maori,

do you want to be in the Kapa

Haka group?” I didn’t even know

what that was. People look at

you funny because they know

things about your culture that

you don’t. But in saying that, my

sister became a Maori teacher.

It’s been a massive learning

curve but also a really good one.

It’s more than the acknowledgement

I’m Maori now. Now I’m

part of it.

Where did you go to school?

I went to Lyttelton West then

Cashmere High School.

I heard you were head boy,

too? You kept that one quiet.

Yeah I was . . . that was a laugh.

Do you have any hidden

talents?

I won the dance competition

at the work Christmas function

out of like 300 people. I don’t

know what kind of dancing I

was doing and when and where I

picked it up . . . I just free-styled.

I think I picked it up from those

Step Up films from years ago. I

was dressed as The Wiggles with

a few of the guys from work.

What do you do for fun?

I love surfing and skiing and I

used to do waka ama, too, which

is outrigger canoeing.

Have you travelled overseas?

In 2014, after I had submitted

my masters thesis, I went to

Canada. I lived in Whistler for a

year working at the bar and on

the mountain and just skied and

had fun. I had a good time and,

by the end of the year, I came

back wanting to make use of my

degree and be more involved in

something besides living paycheck

to paycheck.

Were there any bear encounters?

Yeah, walking through the

village early morning and I was

still quite tired and went through

the forest section in the valley.

I looked up and there’s a beer

standing just in front of me. He

didn’t really care so I just turned

around cause I didn’t want to

deal with it. You get them everywhere.

They’re quite clever so a

lot of the door handles are knobs

because they know how to open

the levers. Stuff like that I wasn’t

used to. The raccoons were

hilarious but they’re the weirdest

creatures that waddle around.

Stream clean-up

SIXTY-FIVE TONNES of

accumulated silt has been blasted

out of an Ilam stream in an effort

to entice trout back to breed and

improve the habitat for other

aquatic life.

Recently North Canterbury Fish

& Game staff spent two weeks

co-ordinating the removal of sediment

from the Wairarapa Stream,

one of the Avon River’s most

important tributaries.

The operation removed silt

which had accumulated over the

years from stormwater drains

flowing into the stream, with

about 540 sq m of stream bed near

the Jellie Park Recreation and

Sports Centre cleaned.

It equated to 120kg of silt per sq

m cleaned.

Fish & Game officer Emily

Arthur-Moore said the goal was

to make the stream suitable for

trout to spawn in and habitable for

other aquatic life.

“Silt layers on top of the stream

gravels had smothered the invertebrates

that live in the stream bed

and, by removing the sediment,

aquatic life has the chance to prosper

again,” she said.

“Various techniques were used

during the two weeks, including

water jet blasters, diggers and a

specialised piece of equipment

FRESH WATER: Tony Findlay

COSGROVE, FISH & GAME NZ

called a sand wand,” Ms Arthur-

Moore said.

Support was given to the project

by the city council, Environment

Canterbury and Nelson-based

dredging and water treatment

consultants, Southwater, which

also provided various pumps and

hoses.

The stream bed was agitated using

either the water jet blasters or

the sand wand and the disturbed

silt was captured and then removed

to a de-watering site.

After a process to remove the

silt, the clean water was returned

to the stream and the sediment

remaining was taken to a landfill

for disposal.

Monitoring was carried

out throughout the project to

assess levels of sediment going

downstream.

“Large amounts of rubbish were

also removed during the process,

mainly broken glass and crockery,

but also items of footwear,

batteries and plastic.”

One volunteer, Tony Findlay,

grew up in the area 50 years ago

and recalled being able to drink

the stream water from the three

springs that once fed the stream

bed that he was working in.

“Not that you would do that

now,” he said.

The stream will be monitored

over the coming years to see if the

improved habitat increases the

diversity of invertebrates, which

trout predate on. Also of interest

is the degree that silt may return

to cover the stream bed.

Ms Arthur-Moore said it’s

hoped the techniques and

knowledge gained from the

project can be applied to other

enhancement projects around the

region.

FreshChoice, SuperValue

give back to community

THIS Christmas, FreshChoice

and SuperValue supermarkets

are encouraging customers

to give back to their local

community.

Give Local allows customers

to donate non-perishable food

items and health products to

those in need.

Specially-marked food collection

trolleys are in place now

at every FreshChoice and SuperValue

store throughout New

Zealand until New Year’s Day.

All items collected are destined

to support local charities,

such as the Salvation Army,

community food banks and

community-led food collections

from organisations like the

Lions Club.

Christchurch-based

FreshChoice and SuperValue

brands manager Liz de Lange

said: “We encourage customers

to look at what they are able to

afford and pop a few extra items

in their trolley to give to the

local charity.”

The supermarkets are

also collecting for the Red

Cross’s earthquake appeal

at all checkouts. Collections

have been started by a $5000

donation from the supermarket

group.

Taking Care of family

Wills, Powers of Attorney, Family Trusts, Rest Home Subsidy,

and Separation and Relationship Property Agreements,

we’ll take care of you and your family.

Food business focuses on

healthy choices

Their experiences on New Zealand

reality TV show MKR was the catalyst for

two Christchurch women, Ricki and Jessie,

to start their own food business – with the

focus firmly on healthy eating.

The pair spent many hours spent tasting,

testing and developing a series of healthy,

nutritionally balanced salads before

launching Healthkicks in April 2015.

“We wanted to provide healthy

options for everyday people,” says Ricki.

“Everyone’s busy these days and as a result

they sometimes find it quicker and easier

to get fast foods, which are often unhealthy.

We wanted to change that culture and offer

healthier options.”

Their selection of fresh, tasty salads

can be purchased in takeaway containers,

which hold a generous portion of up to

500 grams for $10. The salads can also be

vacuum-packed, so they will last longer in

the fridge. Those without lettuce can be

served hot or cold.

They are also available as platters to

serve at parties and barbeques, and with

Christmas Day and other festive occasions

coming up, these would be ideal, Ricki says.

They are delivered in vacuum packs for

easy storage. And as a healthy sweet treat

for ‘afters’, Healthkicks has the delicious

snickers slice.

Items are ordered through the website,

healthkicks.nz, with free delivery available

throughout the Christchurch area –

minimum purchase $30. Orders placed by

6pm will be delivered the following day,

Monday to Friday.

“We are finding that customers are

ordering a week’s worth of salads on a

Monday so they are set up for the week,”

says Ricki. “Our food speaks for itself. As

well as vegetables and proteins it contains

healthy carbs, so it keeps you full.”

Healthkicks also has a shop in

Avonhead, at 104 Staveley Street, phone

342 9541, where customers can purchase

items or pick up their orders. Business

hours are Monday 9am-1.30pm, Tuesday

to Friday, 6.30am-1.30pm.

THE PLAYHOUSE CHALLENGE

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.

REAL ESTATE

An Empty Nest

130 Hackthorne Road, Cashmere

6 bedrooms | 4 bathrooms | 4 toilets | 3 living rooms | 1 dining room | 1 office | 1 swimming pool | 2 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing # BE192731

With the family having left home this

magnificent home is now simply too big

for the vendor. Quintessentially Cashmere

this superb home with sweeping views and

all day sun will please the most discerning

buyer. A superbly designed extension by

Sheppard and Rout has resulted in a six

bedroom, four bathroom, three living

room home retaining the style and charm

of its history whist giving the benefit of

modern day living. Step into the large

elegant entranceway and on into the large

family kitchen and dining room area

featuring beautiful timber floors and then

through to the family room. A large formal

wood panelled lounge is a wonderful

space to perhaps achieve a quiet area from

the bustle of family life. The adjoining

conservatory can also double as room

for teenagers, being big enough to take a

table tennis table. A media room complete

with speakers, projector and screen is a

great place to entertain family and friends,

perhaps after a bbq and swim in the heated

inground pool. But perhaps the real

surprise lies at the top of the house. Here

is a purpose-built workspace, generous

in size and ideal for those who wish to

work from home. There is room for three

people to comfortably work plus storage

space for samples or stock. Attention to

detail continues even into laundry and a

refrigerated cool room. The large private

grounds are a joy for the gardener with

expansive lawns and well established trees

and shrubs. You can sit on the deck and

admire your garden in these long summer

days to come. There is so much to see in

the house - call now to view your new

home.

Christmas – a time for

celebration & worship

Christmas Day is a holy

day for Christians who

mark the 25 December as

the birth of Christ. They

come together in prayer

and song, heralding the

coming of Jesus, the son of

God.

Leading up to Christmas

day is the period of

advent. It begins on the

Sunday closest to the 30

November, with the advent

calendar counting down

the days to Christmas

while the advent wreath

contains five candles

representing the Sundays

before the special day and

one for Christmas Day.

Joseph, a carpenter and

Mary had been travelling

90 miles from Nazareth to

Bethlehem; as Joseph was

required to participate in a

Census where the Roman

rulers counted the number

of Jewish people for tax

purposes.

Heavily pregnant Mary

had been riding on a

donkey. She gave birth in

a cave stable where they

slept with the animals due

to there being no room at

the inn. The nativity scene

shows Jesus lying in a

manger in the stable; often

re-enacted by children as

part of church services

leading up to Christmas

Day with some churches

even having live animals as

part of this service.

A bright Star signalled

the coming of Christ and

guided wise men who took

gifts of gold, frankincense

and myrrh to the new born

while shepherds were led

there by an angel.

Christmas Eve and

Christmas Day services

are a time for rejoicing the

birth of Christ when carols

are sung and there is much

happiness.

We wish everyone a very merry Christmas and happy hoildays
